  6. Consider it more as a tablet than a laptop and you will be happy.
  7. MS refurbisher here. You just stick the COA number into your license portal just like any other computer. I've refurbished almost all versions of XP, Vista, 7, 8, and 10. It's all the same portal. The only ones that don't upgrade through the portal are the "starter edition" licenses but if you call your rep, they'll put them in manually for you.
  8. Snipping tool is awesome. Functionally it does mostly the same things as the Greenshot (for my use case) but everything is way easier.

  10. I am running Windows 7 and when offered the free upgrade to Windows 10 some years ago, I tried it, but then needed to back off because of problems that developed after the upgrade. I would like to attempt it again, but would like the free upgrade. How do I go about getting this done on both a laptop and a desktop unit that I own. One is a Lenovo T530 (laptop) and the other is a Lenovo IdeaCentre B5 series (desktop). Thank you.
  11. Hi all, Looking at some of he threads on here, this will be small beer, but here goes. I wish to upgrade a PC and also a laptop. What's the most appropriate way to get and/or process the upgrade software so that the second machine can be upgraded without having to pay twice and/or start again? My laptop isn't very old and my PC has recently been beefed up, so I wish to re-use them rather than ditch and buy new. Both have SSDs, the laptop 5GB RAM, the PC with 8GB RAM, both with plenty of free memory. Anything else I need to worry about? Thanks, Ian
  12. I posted this once and haven't gotten any responses, so going to try again. My desktop computer keeps saying i have a dns server problem. I a have re-booted, and it would work for a day or two and back to the same problem. I will not connect to the internet, so i have done a trouble shoot and its saying i have a dns server problem. Not sure how this could of happened, interested in knowing that too. Please need help.
  13. Tried the online support, wasted 3 hours of my life.
  14. For some reason, my computer decided it had no room on it. When I went to right click on the hard drive to see its properties, it said I have no access. I went to retake the ownership (yes since the last Win10 update this has been an issue) and when I click change it just freezes. Everything works behind it. I have tried system recovery and got the "There was a problem" msg. I have tried to boot into safe mode, it wont boot. Have tried a restore point, did nothing. I try to open programs says cant because I dont have access. Cant download files because I dont have access. How do I get this working again? I was typing a paper when it decided to go crazy. Oh yea, one drive error messages keep going off.
  15. When we talk about PC games, windows games aren’t really popular! The possible explanation for this is many people don’t know about great games that are available for Windows 10, which are enabled by Xbox Live. We have picked the best games for windows 10 10 laptop. We have tried to pick up the games which cover wide genres. 1. Asphalt 9: legends 2. Battlefield 3 3. Fallout shelter 4. Roblox
  16. I have been having trouble with my desktop computer. Not sure when it started, but have re- booted and it would work for a day or two and back to the same issue. I says my DNS server is trying to access something that does not exist and to contact the network administrator, not connected to internet. Not sure what that means at all. I have a lap top computer which I am using now so this one is connected. So please anyone that can help I would appreciate it. Please explain in easy terms, don't know all the technology terms. Thank you
  17. Having gone through more updates and security updates than I can count, blocking as many as I can, I am now plagued with random black screens, no error messages, just a once in a while restart (soft boot) after black screen followed by a blue screen, rotating wheel and a "please wait" message, When done I am back at the login screen wondering WTF just happened? No new "updates" or update attempts and it is getting worse! I am so fed up with this I'm about to turn my $$$$ HP Workstation into a Hackintosh except I would need to replace all my software! Please advise as to where to start!
  18. I am running an AMD A10-6700 APU w/Radeon HD Graphics 3.70GHz. Memory: 8.00GB (7.19GB usable) System: 64-Bit OS x64 based processor It is an ASUS. I am having difficulty with live streaming sports, specifically hockey, in that I am able to connect to the streaming site but after sometime, nothing consistant like after the first 10 minutes of 20 minutes or 50 minutes. When using Google Chrome I attempt to correct this by working with Flash Player and sometimes it works and other times it does not. I am using wifi at my tower and the computer is approximately 30 feet from the router. The wifi connection works fine. When I connect to a streaming website the stopping and starting begin to occur and once it does then that website will not be usable again that evening so I switch to another website. That may or may not work. Recently I purchased an HDMI cable, 25 foot, to connect my computer to my 40 inch widescreen tv. Conncection starts out ok but then as above it starts to stop playing then continues and then stops again, to the point where I have to move to another website. People have told me I am too far away from the modem/router but the computer operation is not the problem The computer works fine but might occasionally develop a slowness in changing using keystrokes. The wifi antenna sits on top of my towere when I do a speed test I get very close to the 10mb I am paying for. It is o nly when I start live streaming that this occurs. I know that this has been long but I wanted to give you full information. Thank you for any comments I will receive. Bruce
  19. My network was working fine, then after a Win10 update on the other PC I can no longer see it. I have set the services Function Discovery (Both) to Automatic delay start on both pcs, rebooted both but still no luck. Any other options? via the registry edit maybe?
  20. same issue after updating ? bios ? a new user maybe related ?
  21. Both myself and my wife have have our own Gmail accounts. We created accounts with Windows Mail to access said Gmail accounts. We noticed today that when my wife send an email from her account the recipient sees my name but her email address in their FROM box. For example: Jane Doe (maryjane@gmail.com) I have check the setting in Gmail and all is well there. Any ideas?
  22. After this update a new, and totally unknown user emerged on my PC. The information from this user folder says it has been created before I bought my PC. It is named by a person's name unknown to me and contains folders with photos, excel-files, music, pdf-files, videos etc. (I bought this new PC this fall.) I tried to delete the new user, but was not allowed to do it. I tried to prevent the user with my F-secure, but the user-folders are protected, and again, I'm not allowed to delete this new, unwanted user on my PC. Never happened anything like this before, and I'm quite baffled.

  24. I was trying to download Kik messaging app from the windows store but it doesn't work. so i follow this guide this helps me alot. Hope this guide is also useable for you. https://kikloginonline.com/kik-for-pc-windows-download/
  25. cannot share printer, supposed to ask to install driver for printer, never happens. Tried everything. My problem is with the machine I want to share with
  26. When HDMI is plugged in, my laptop screen goes blank, but only after Windows starts. Before Windows boots, it is fine; i.e. the Acer logo shows fine. If HDMI is not plugged into the laptop, the display works just fine, from startup through running Windows. With HDMI plugged in, if the attached receiver and flat screen are turned on, everything works fine. This is a nuisance, and I've tolerated it for long enough. I don't want to be required to turn everything on every time I want to use my computer. I'm using Windows 10 on an Acer Aspire laptop, with Intel HD Graphics 4000. It reports that the driver is up-to-date. Thanks
  27. ADDENDUM It has been discovered that this behavior is unique to Firefox 32/64-bit on the Windows Pro desktop PC. The Windows 10 HOME laptop, running Firefox 32-bit, does not sleep. EDGE and Chrome don't sleep. WMP doesn't sleep. Running FF in safe mode (no add-ons) changes nothing. Totally uninstalling FF and refreshing it - the same. Older FF versions, when the problem wasn't apparent, now sleep. An annoying, if not critical, situation. ^_^
  28. I installed window update and have problems with my Officejet 8040 printer. I have uninstalled printer and installed again, did all the suggested clean up. My problem is that I can not printer in color and the properties shows that the photo tray was not installed. See attached photos: Printer had no problems before update. I need an answer please.
