memory – My PC gets frequent random blue screens

As the title says, my PC gets random, frequent blue screens.
My PC is overclocked to the minimal overclock preset, which is handled by a knob on my motherboard.
I stress tested my PC using a program called Aida64 extreme. It only/always occurs when stress testing the “FPU”
Stress testing any of the other components (GPU, SSD, CPU, Memory) does not cause a blue screen to occur. Any advice on what the problem might be?

display – Two screens, same resolution, different PPI – which requires more power?

We have two screens/displays with the same resolution but different PPI (therefore different size). Which of those two displays will require more power to run. For the sake of argument consider the panels being the same technology.

Let’s say we have two phones :

iPhone 12 Mini: Screen size: 5.4″, Resolution: 1080x2340px, PPI: 476

Galaxy S10 Lite: Screen size: 6.7″, Resolution: 1080x2400px, PPI: 394

Is there going to be a big difference in power drawn just for the display or is the power difference marginal -> the PPI has no noticible effect on power usage when the resolution is the same.

My research only got me into questions about power usage of displays with different resolutions, which is NOT what I need to know. Another way of thinking about this question is when I have two 500×500 displays but one is 100 PPI and the other is 500 PPI – does PPI affect energy required?

lock screens – Is it safe to disable Pixel Ambient Services?

Recently my Pixel 2 has been unable to turn the backlight on at the lock screen (also home screen if I directly unlock using fingerprint). I had to retry locking and unlocking at least 20 times before it turned the backlight on. I switched off the ambient display and it seemed to work for a month or two. Please note that the touch continued to work.

Now the issue has resurfaced even with ambient display switched off. I was thinking to completely disable the app but android warns me against it.

If you disable this app, Android and other apps may no longer function
as intended

Is it safe to disable the Ambient Services?

I tried googling solutions for the original problem even before but to no avail

Please provide suggestions if you know any.

PowerApps screens – Split-screen, Sidebar and Heather, Main section, Footer

Working on a PowerApp today, I came across 3 new “screen types” when I went to add a new screen.

enter image description here

Although it is fairly easy to understand how those screens are set up, I wasn’t able to find Microsoft documentation on those.

They use Containers in the screen but I do not have the Container feature enabled.

As I’ve just noticed them, any ideas of when those new screens were added to PowerApps and release notes from Microsoft I missed?

info visualisation – How to implement a side filer bar for smaller screens without overlying the platform content

Currently, I’m working on a data-driven platform. I designed a side filter bar which allows user to filter data dependable of his needs. The problem appears on smaller screens. After a discussion with my team, we decided that the side filter will be always open by default on smaller screens and will overly the content and than- the user will be able to close it. The solution is indicated below. I’m concerned about this approach (the filter bar overlays content – I believe it’s not the best user-friendly thing to do) and wanted to hear your insights- maybe exists a better user-friendly solution? Do you think this approach is ok? What do you think about the filter bar (it connects actually 3 different filtering options – regular filter data, comparison view, and advanced segmentation)Due to many filtering options which are equally important I decided to go with side filter. side filter visualisation on a small 1100 px screen

responsive design – UX solutions for data tables and alignment on large screens

I see a lot of excellent advice on here regarding how to build mobile-responsive data tables. However, when it comes to large viewports, I’m not finding much. In general, I’m at a loss about what to do here.

This is a mockup of the view I’m working on. On a ~1200px wide viewport, the table is centered in the page. What really bothers me is how the section titles are aligned to the left. But when I align them to the data table, it seems there is excessive space around everything on the page.

For clarity, this page is for checking server statuses. The table displays various servers, their status (icon), and a description. There’s also a legend at the top that tells the user what each icon is for.

The first ‘Lorem Ipsum’ section may have 1 or more cards of server alerts data. The below mockup is what it would look like were there no current alerts.

Do I center the section headers to align with the data table? Should the info text section below the header be aligned in the center or to the left?

mobile application – Settings screen – sub screens vs expansion panel vs sections

I have an app which has a settings screen and the options are growing up, so I started thinking about grouping in some way, I have some options until now:

  1. Define a main, e.g. Design tile which sends to another screen which has all the options for Design;
  2. Use Expansion panels in the same hierarchy previosly cited;
  3. Continue with just a list with sections.

Some references:

  • Twitter and Instagram use screens (option 1)
  • Facebook has a section using expansion panel on settings; (option 2)
  • Spotify doesn’t almost any sub subject for settings, it’s just a list with everything, even though they use sections; (option 3)

But I couldn’t find any reason to choose one of those anywhere.

lock screens – Why don’t the new Android 11 audio controls include my Google Home speaker?

I have a Pixel 3XL that recently updated to Android 11. I like the new audio controls on the lock screen (and in the notifications dropdown), but I’m wondering why my Google Home Mini speaker isn’t listed as an option.

When I open an audio app directly, I do have the “Cast” icon at the bottom right corner of the screen that will send the audio to the speaker:

enter image description here

But on the lock screen controls, when I tap the audio output button (labeled Phone Speaker at this particular moment)

enter image description here

I get options for everything that’s ever connected via bluetooth, but not my speaker.

It would be really nice if I didn’t have to unlock the phone and open the app if I want to switch from headphones or phone speaker to my Home Mini speaker. Am I missing a setting, or is this expected behavior?
