  4. 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
  5. 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!

  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. same issue after updating ? bios ? a new user maybe related ?
  10. 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?
  11. 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.

  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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. ^_^
  17. 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.

  19. For years - even prior to the advent of W10 - sleep has never kicked in during Net video streaming (YouTube, for example). Recently, it began to do so, at the specified sleep interval. Even after restoring a system image made when this definitely was not an issue, the sleep while active behavior persists. This hints that an update caused the problem. Virtually all remedies listed in various forums, including driver updates, have been tested. No luck. New ideas welcomed.
  20. Cont. from https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-desktop/i-want-windows-10-to-write-my-speech/9578c1f7-2c9e-4707-a917-c4bb97b5ab48?messageId=a152b31d-f519-4db0-9511-142bfb07ac47&tm=1569292153054 Hii, Stack exchange is too competitive and the problem is they dissect, and post a lot of bits of code, which is behavioristic and banal I have looked up and down and cannot find how to write in command prompt or terminal using neither voice nor cortana. I have found code with more problems than it solves in stackexchange.com who is the only ones who come close to answering, but they are only close. Also I request is personal favorite; having voice to text in command prompt to open my often used commands; like ipconfig, defrag /C /H /V, and so on, with Cortana. I love Cortana and think she is one of the best programs out there. I just am unhappy I cannot get her to write! What is wrong with a vocal command like "Hey Cortana>Terminal> Write ipconfig forward slash>space all"? With spelling correction built in it would be fine. What would be great could be a program called Microcoft Write, in which I would vocally write up english homework in Wordpad or Office and would have voice writing on telnet, newsgroups and in PowerShell. It would write in I an not disabled, maybe lazy or Autistic but not disabled. As I grow older I find the internet and programming to be a job for the young. Solutions are not handled by the young exclusively Solutions for the geeks like myself who are overweight, older and more reclusive, as well, writing larger coding projects are tiring. My lower back aches and winter is coming. I would have programmed this project for you, and for myself and would have looked up partners in coding groups but I want everyone to have this, I want you to have the first crack at it. Thanks very much for your attention to this matter, Regards, John Mathis I go to answers.microsoft.com when I have exhausted finding my solution online. When I can help, I will stalk it to help others find help; meaning I will find as well as submit and until needs are met, somewhat. Thanks for continued direction.
  21. Hi Lolita, I'm not sure I understand what you are asking? Is it that you don't know about File Explorer? Or you find it a hassle? There are some other programs up there on the Internet to search for files. I find them as tough as Windows search. They need a better way to keep your files in one location. Here is what I did: In File Explorer, go to Documents or wherever you keep your files and open it and either Right click on that folder scroll down to Send to Desktop>Add Shortcut. Copy everything into that new folder and name it what you want.

  23. I just tried the change agent, tried several from android to mac got the same thing Windows10Upgrade.exe Windows upgrade assistant
  24. I think it is best to get your drivers like mouse, keyboard and GPU drivers from the manufacture's site, you will find the latest exact driver for your device. However if you are a lazy person like me who don't like to visit different manufacture's to download drivers than you can use the free version of driver booster. Believe me you will not be disappointed :D Driver pack is also a good software but I personally use driver booster because I like it's interface. Driver booster download link
  25. I went to Settings - Status, and clicked on "Network reset". This fixed the problem.
  26. Hi, If this is happening to someone else, please support commenting this so our voices are heard. I waste way too much time talking to Cortana to find simple matches of words or phrases in my documents. Talking to Cortana is reducing my income dramatically as I must find old documents matches to compare phrases in old projects. Since we do not have the typing option for searches I prefer to do them manually. It takes longer to get positive results with Cortana. Can we have a choice between typing or talking to do searches please?
  27. Get back into Windows in Safe Mode and see if you can remove it. Something (driver, software, etc...) must be conflicting with the update.
