If you are OK with using a lower powered computer like a raspberry pi, then I say go for it! A raspberry pi can run off the same battery bank your phone, just make sure the power bank has a 3.0V output, such as this one. (source: https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/114239/pi-4-maximum-power-consumption#114245). Another idea: if you have a ...

Although it's hard to determine from the photo, the most likely cause of the issue is mild damage to the PCB at the charger connector. This is not uncommon, because the continual insertion and removal of the cable connector flexes the PCB trace and solder joint. Look also for any tiny break in the trace on the other side of the PCB. You observation that the ...

Yes, you can replace the physical keyboard and change the keyboard language settings in OS to english. I recommend not removing keys one by one, but changing the whole keyboard instead. This might void your guarantee though. The procedure is easy, I replaced my first laptop keyboard in my life successfully with the help of random youtube video. So you can do ...

If you're currently using the Samsung modules, that means your laptop uses DDR4. The DDR3 modules you've been gifted will neither work nor physically fit. Sell (or return) the Kingston DDR3 modules and get some extra DDR4 modules if you have RAM slots left unused in your laptop. If you only have two RAM slots, you'd want to get 2x16 GB modules, preferably at ...

the solution was Lenovo Thinkpad X1 series, in case anyone else is wondering.

When architecting your software solution you usually would want to try and run a load test to see if your response times are acceptable. It sounds like you're not running into any significant issues b/c you didn't mention anything specific. In your use case I find it hard to justify choosing, purchasing, and then maintaining the hardware for a full power on-...

It is highly unlikely your RAM is going to make a significant difference in the performance for video editing or encoding. Your CPU, then GPU is most likely to be the bottleneck in this scenario (in that order). While you don't list the CAS latency for the RAM, It is essentially certain that loading the DDR3 RAM is going to be slower for overall performance ...

I have replaced the CPU thermal paste and drilled holes around the bottom of the laptop casing to allow air to get in. I also got a laptop cooler stand. I upgraded the RAM too I ran two CPU tests in the bios. I get around: High 89C Low 56C Current 56C I have not used the laptop cooling stand much. There was not much difference with the cooling fan stand on ...

The desktop's CPU will run circles around that laptop's. This is because the i5-9400f has two more cores than the laptop and runs at nearly double the refresh rate of the laptops. The 'I' series is basically a marketing thing and only roughly estimates performance in the same generation, not cross generations. It's confusing, I know. I would deeply recommend ...

You can, but if you don't use 90+% of your ram, it should not impact performance. You should buy a 16GB stick (or a 1*16GB kit) with a 2667Mhz speed. To make it fit in the socket, use DDR4 SODIMM. To ensure the best compatibility, try buying the same stick that is already in your laptop (google Kingston ACR26D4S9D8ME-16). To install the ram stick, you can ...

Yes, in short it is possible and I do recommend upgrading the RAM of your laptop since it is one of the cheapest yet effective ways to increase its performance. Details provided above indicate to me that there is a slot empty to insert another RAM stick to perfectly increase it to the maximum 32 GB limit of the motherboard. It will be beneficial especially ...

If your desktop and laptop both have a USB port type C that supports 100w mode you can charge/power your laptop easily. You may find you need to buy a specific USB type C cable that supports 5A mode. It should be noted you need to have an extra 100w from the PSU so if your PSU isn't big enough you may run into problems. Otherwise, it going to be difficult. ...
