Why aren't there any computer hardware stores (like Microcenter) in SLC?

I feel like it's a huge gap in the market, but doing a bit of research shows that the ones that have tried here usually go out of business. Does anyone know why that is? Basically every other major city I've been in has some kind of computer hardware store, often multiple. I know it's harder for them to run these days, what with online stores becoming so prevalent, but I feel like there should still be a decent demand for an in-person hardware store with knowledgeable employees and a good return policy (which is why most that I know go to Microcenter in the first place over online shops).

How to learn how computers and hardware works from a low level?

I'm interested in computer science but also the engineering (hardware) side of it. I found the website teachyourselfcs(.com), the courses nand2tetris and CS50 and the youtube Channel beneater. If I were to learn from these resources, would I know how computers work, and technology in general? What other resources do you recommend? I am also interested in cybersecurity, do you maybe know some resource which is focused on how computers work from a cybersecurity perspective?

Thanks

Will majoring first in computer science help me go farther in a career dealing with hardware/ computer and electrical engineering??

I’m currently pursuing an electrical engineering degree and I am thinking about pushing more of my strengths towards software development. I’ve seen interviews and Q&A’s online saying that most of the time an entry level employee will mostly work on programming and leave the actual hardware design to employees who have the most experience in the field and have a very low risk of botching boards. My goal in life is to design hardware but I don’t think I am currently competitive enough to get a job or internships creating said hardware. Should I shift my focus towards software and build a resume with great projects and land a job first as a software developer for a company? After this, should I go back to school part time to finish studying electrical engineering and have a greater shot of moving up in a company to hardware development? (Sorry if this sounds confusing or jumbled, this is my first time posting on Reddit.)

Which Is Better? Electrical/Computer Engineering, Or Computer Science For Someone Very Interested In Hardware But Primarily Wanting A Career Focused In Software/AI?

Hi everyone! I just came to this subreddit as I am in a bit of a predicament. A bit of background on me- I'm a Grade 12 student currently applying to universities but am struggling between choosing Electrical/Computer Engineering or a Computer Science Degree. I am interested in hardware, but am also very very interested in software (particularly machine and deep learning/AI in general). I have received some suggestions and the 2 most common ones were.

  1. Get my undergrad degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering then transition into software/AI after as that is very easy to do apparently if one studies EE, or CE (or so I've been told)

  2. Take a CS degree but then take hardware electives

I was just wondering if I could get some recommendations, and insights as to which option may be better as I am very hard-pressed to choose and have to hand in my application, by the end of this weekend. Any, and all advice is appreciated, thank you!!! :)

Gigabyte b550i Aorus Pro Ax bluetooth not working "hardware device is not connected to the computer."

Bluetooth does not work on my mobo. Windows gives me the message "bluetooth is not available on this device". No bluetooth icon shows up in notification center.

 

I have the Intel driver assistant installed which says I have up to date drivers but does not show a bluetooth module on the installed devices list.

I'm on latest BIOS, F11i. I've tried flashing to f10 but there's no bluetooth on that bios version either.

 

In device manager, the Intel bluetooth module does show up with this message

>Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45) >To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.

How can I reconnect the bluetooth module when it's built into the motherboard?

 

edit 2

SOLVED! Unplugg the power cable for a 5-10mins and also press the power button for around 10secs to drain residual power, after plug in and power up and bluetooth should be working again.

New to ECE, interested in computer hardware

Hey everyone, I recently got out of high school and joined a college for ECE undergrad (it's called electronics and communication in my college but we're allowed to take a few CS electives too).

I am interested in designing computer hardware. Anything from CPU to RAM/ROM. I've heard of things like VLSI and digital system circuit design but I have no idea about it.

What should my pathway be like, what should I learn and focus on and what about masters?

Computer Specs & Hardware Usage

Hey everyone! So I am looking at building a mobile broadcasting cart. At the core, I will be running OBS. Most likely, I will be running 2 cameras through capture devices as well as importing live feeds from cameras using OBS Ninja. This would be for live events like sports or recitals so i wont be gaming. My question is about picking a computer to run it all. I actually have a spare gaming PC that I could use, but I'd like to be completely untethered from a wall outlet so I would rather go for a laptop. When using OBS, what are the most important pieces of hardware? Is it the CPU, the GPU or a combo of the two? Any advice is appreciated. I just need to know what specs to focus on when picking a laptop. Thanks!

How can a computer read β€œzero” bits over a β€œlive” datastream (ie, not from hardware memory), given that a β€œzero” is just a lack of an electrical pulse?

So, my understanding, and please correct me if I’m wrong, is that, given a datastream, say, a network connection, that a β€œ1” bit is an electrical β€œpulse”, and a β€œ0” is the LACK of an electrical pulse. So, how can a computer tell the difference between a β€œ0” and a β€œno data”?

gotchas for transition to new computer hardware

I have Proxmox 6.1 installed on an 4th generation i5 small form factor desktop. If I want to transition to completely new hardware, I've read I can just install proxmox on the new desktop and create backups from the VM's/LXC's currently running and restore them on the new desktop? A couple of details I'd like to understand:

  1. What happens MAC addresses? Do I get to pick at the time of restore whether to restore the old macs addresses for each VM/LXC or generates new ones? I'd like to keep the same MAC address so my router's DHCP server will assign the same IP address. I can put the new desktop in its own LAN while this happens so I don't get MAC collisions.

  2. Should I install Proxmox 6.1 again or can I go with the latest version 6.3?

  3. I have a Windows VM. Can the restore method work for Windows VMs too? Windows typically can't handle complete hardware swaps, but maybe it can as a VM?

  4. The old hard drives obviously won't exist on the new machine. Do I get to designate which local drive to restore to on the new machine? What if a VM/LXC also has drives attached to it - how does the restore process handle that? One of the VM's owns a rather large 10GB drive, and has applications in containers that use that drive. I'm not sure how best to handle that. I followed instructions to do that part, but didn't really understand what I was doing. Is that consider a hard drive passthrough?

Note: My Proxmox is very vanilla, AFAIK. I didn't configure any hardware passthroughs I don't think. I think I only did 3 things on the Proxmox host itself:

  1. add a SMB drive so I can generate backups onto a network drive.

  2. change static IP configuration

  3. One of the VM's has a local drive assigned to the VM.

So we have a new program to get students ready for the A+ cert. However the teacher wants them to be able to use command prompt....Of course we have that locked down. The time I took a prep course in college for an elective they had cmd prompt labs that ran as an emulation type setup. I've searched google but maybe im typing in the wrong terms. I did see cmder but looks a little too much for a teacher to manage. Any thing out their that is a 3rd party that can be a companion to the prep course instead of opening our cmd prompt to students.

I think an Arduino with an Ethshield is what I need but I don't know much about the mini-PC space so it seems worth asking about. The sensors will be in a high humidity environment but the PC will be near it, but not in it.
