I will be going away for the weekend and I was wondering if there was someway to practice (tabs / video / sheet music) some of the harder guitar lessons from Rocksmith 2014 Remastered when I am away from the PC?

I just got a neat Dreamcast with controllers, cables and games for $20 USD at a Thrift Store. It powers up great, but I run into problems when I put in a game the disc spins up and says "Please wait while disc is being checked", this flashes on a off randomly and then stops and when I click the play game it says "Please insert game Disc".
Here is the weird thing, if I let it sit for about 20 seconds, the disc spins up, loads and the game starts for about 10-20 seconds, then it stops spinning and it goes back to main menu with the Please insert game Disc error.
Is there a way to fix this error because the drive seem to work (because the game starts up for short periods of time).
Thanks for your help!!
I bought a dirt cheap Alienware M5500 (pre-dell) laptop with an Intel Pentium M 2 GHZ a gig of ram and a nVidia GeForce Go 6600. It was in rough shape when I got it, but I fixed it all up! (new thermal paste, dusting, new OS) Runs very well now.
Now, my plans for this system is to use this as a more "vintage" gaming computer. From late 90s to mid 2000s. It looks great and is a classic design.
My question is, what is the max upgrade I can do with this model? I believe that graphics card is MXM standard (see photo) and an old PC Mag review said I could upgrade it to a nVidia GeForce Go 7800GTX (only $20 extra today). Can I upgrade the card any higher? Is the card I have MXM and upgradable? (please see photo)
Another question is, can I upgrade the CPU (pentium M included) any higher? Maybe a first gen dual core?
I know an SSD will help, but IDE SSDs are very expensive and not nearly as efficient.

I got a super cheap deal on a rarer, Japanese Nintendo Game Boy Light but the screen is kind of scratched up. I have seen a lot of replacement Screen Lens on eBay fairly cheap and I was wondering if I will hurt the value (because it is not all original) of this by replacing the screen lens?
Thanks a lot!
I just got a HDMI Xbox 360 with Microsoft WiFi adapter and controller for $21 USD at a thrift store and the system plays games great!
The only problem is that the DVD drive seems to stick when trying to eject. If I whack the Xbox 360 as it ejects the tray opens. I know there are a lot of ways out there to fix this problem and I was wondering what tips and tricks you use to fix this problem.
Thanks a lot!
I received an original Xbox from someone and it seems to work very well, except the DVD drive likes to stick. What I mean by that is I press the eject button and it opens a tiny bit, sticks and goes back in. I found a way to temporarily fix this by hitting (not too hard) the system a fraction of a second after I hit the eject button and 9 times out of 10 it fixes the problem and it works great.
My question, is there a way to fix this issue so I don't have to whack the unit every time I change games?
@raugutcon: Thanks a lot! I will do that! :)
I played this my friend's Assassins Creed game a lot on his PS3 and I would like to get back into it. I was wondering whether I should get it New or used? Are there any DLC or Codes in the game that can be used only once so I should get it new? Or are the DLC built into the game so I don't have to activate it so I can get it used.
Thanks a lot!
Cause they are not video gamers and only used it as a bluray player for less then a year before they got a new tv with one included and it just sat there, only used when I visited:) cause I had the only games for it!
I have a PS3 slim (2nd generation) that I have been using for a while but I landed upon a hardly used PS3 Fat with PS2 capability for really cheap from a friend. (Under 40:) I was wondering if I should keep the PS3 fat and sell the slim? Or is the slim a much unit (reliability, faster load and processor speeds, or better looking video)?
The reason I say that is I had a 1st gen PSP and 3rd gen, and the 3rd gen unit was noticeably faster and a better unit!
Thanks a lot!!!
