I am a former professional auto mechanic (Porsche and numerous foreign marques). I am currently a semi-retired computer programmer. My hobbies include motorcycles both riding and wrenching. Home automation. I like to pay it forward to the gear-head community what little I know. Having said that... I will not respond to rhetorical questions or blatant attempts to troll against my contributions. I periodically write articles on a blog about my projects. You may find those here: Timbocephus

Answer to "kindle is bricked, pc shows tate, but cant get adb to work!"I had to look up fastboot cable. Read your original post also…. Looks like you got the cable working already on the android side. I have had better luck using adb on linux PCs instead of having to mess with windows USB drivers. Others will no doubt have other opinions. Also noticed that some folks opinion is that an incorrectly wired fastboot cable can cause damage that is more difficult to fix … rendering reflashing with said cable impossible perhaps.
Answer to "Accessories not gripped tightly"Measure the shaft on the tool in question. It is probably 3/32” and you probably have a 1/8” collet installed in the collet nut. If you have lost that part or did not get it with the tool they are readily available on line. https://www.ereplacementparts.com/collet-332-p-97423.html?osCsid=ne6i5osls3a3eng9vn57fi...
Answer to "What RAM Memory I need for HP EliteBook 8440p?"Click on “HP EliteBook 8440p” just under the small picture at right of question page. Then click on “Service guide” at bottom of page (scroll down). Go to page 4-16 in table of content. Bob’s your uncle.
Answer to "Why is my rca voyager III tablet fading into a black screen"What do you have the sleep timer set on?
Answer to "Join on washing machine drum is sharp"I would probably try smoothing it over with a product like this: https://www.jbweld.com/collections/glass... Assuming warranty is not in the picture.
Answer to "Where is pairing code for Echo Dot"I think this is already answered here… How do I pair my phone or tablet to my echo dot?
Answer to "Portege x20w Bios reset"Try this… Entering BIOS in Toshiba Portege (1) Turn off your Toshiba computer. (2) Power on the machine. (3) Press F12 key repetitively as soon as the booting begins until the BIOS menu screen appears. Hopefully there is option to restore defaults at that point. If not more ideas here… https://itstillworks.com/reset-toshiba-cmos-2500.html The warnings at the bottom of that page sound kind of discouraging. Maybe a bootable USB windows image might allow resetting that CMOS. This is why I keep all my passwords encrypted and backed up on removable media (USB). Yes it is a hassle but so is losing your passwords.
Answer to "How to fix my 99 Dodge caravan"First thing to check is fusible links for alternator output into battery.
Answer to "GoPro touchscreen not working after being in the water"Some suggestions here… LCD Screen not working
