When it fails to display, the error is before video testing :-)


Which means the video card's ****ed.


The beep error codes, include a RAM error beep code.

This allows telling you the system RAM is bad, without
requiring anything other than that motherboard piezo.

The beep pattern is "coded", so more than one error
indication can be delivered to the user.


Yes I've used that a long time ago, but not found the need recently. Parts are more reliable than they used to be. Also if you have spare bits lying around, swapping things finds the fault.

Huh? I never had any such problem printing from adobe reader reliably.

I have, I never get the size I expect. Easier to put it into a photo
editor with a screengrab, then you can fit to page etc.


Pdfs are vector formats and by definition can be scaled to any size without
losing resolution*. A pdf print dialogue box always has a "shrink to fit"
and/or "scale to page" option.

By taking a screenshot your rasterising the page and losing the benefit of
the pdf.

* Unless it had been saved as raster format. But that's dumb so not common
these days.


Wait, there are many scanners or scanner applications that save directly
as PDF. And in that case, they use bitmaps.


That's true. I was meaning pdfs you generally get online.

I think the last thing I tried to print was a calendar - I'd found a
website that generates calendars for any month and year in pdf format. I
wanted to print most of the page, cutting off the borders, but acrobat
reader was unable to, so I just screengrabbed. I got the resolution of
the monitor, which is fine.

Anything should be able to print properly. PDF doesn't help here.


Actually it does. That's the whole point of the format. It is completely
device agnostic so it doesn't matter what you're viewing it on or printing
it with it should print as the author designed it. You often see forms as
word files and they never print or render properly.


But what about how I want it?


That's not the main use case for pdfs. It's mainly a read-only format -
forms excepted.

However, you can edit them in libreoffice draw or Adobe Illustrator plus
others. Word allegedly reads them, but always makes a pig's ear of them.

Why the hell would I want something I can't adjust before printing? I might want only the top half, enlarged to fit the page, etc.
