  2. I have an hp laptop with windows 10
  3. Can't solve, but the experts may be interested in the version of Windows you are using, could be idea to add this to your post
  4. i get the circle that spins and just keeps spinning and this is as I am just scrolling down a website wall
  5. I have a similar problem, see this post:- Using Windows 10, Mouse appears not now to be unresponsive. Keep getting small "Icon" of black circle with line through it. Have been into Control Panel & changed settings but not helped Solution? Do you get a "Black circle with line icon?
  6. while operating my pc it seems that the mouse begins to lag and become less responsive. so does my web browser, when I click on a link it tends to take some time to open it. when browsing places like facebook and scrolling down the wall it will freeze. is this a memory issue?
  7. Last week
  8. When my last Windows PC went belly up I purchased a cheap PC without an OS and put Linux Mint on it. Mint is designed to be familiar to Windows users. This setup was only ever going to be temporary until I got together the funds to go Windows again. many many years down the line and I'm still using it. There is a learning curve but it isn't too steep and adding peripherals while not as easy as Windows is no longer a pain in the posterior. It depends what software you want to run, the download comes with Browsers, Media players, Office suite and pretty much everything you'll need. There's also loads of Linux programs and games that are available free via the built in Software manager. You can if you wish run Windows programs using the Wine Emulator but I've never found it entirely faultless and some programs don't much like it. Point being if you're a gamer or using some specifically windows programs then Linux isn't perfect but if you want the PC for Browsing, Document creation media playing etc it does pretty much everything you want. My suggestion would be to try a copy running it from a USB stick it'll let you have a rummage through Linux without changing your existing setup as well as confirming that your system can handle the latest version. If you decide to load Linux remember you'll need a cabled internet connection during install so it can pick up drivers for Wi-Fi and any other connected hardware.

  10. I have just got yet another update on W7. Again on lap top for Hubbie too. Come Monday end of support will be here. I tried to get W10 and it was going until last knockings - updating so left it for a while. Only to come back and find it back to W7 saying sorry didnt work, that was my desk top. T Then tried the laptop. It too failed. Was trying to get it free as digital license for each computer that had downloaded successfully W10 is remembered and OK to go. Both these were successfully W10. Just that I for one didnt like it and went back to W7 and hubby asked me to get his back as he isnt a computer person, uses it for soccer English and other leaguesand that is about all except emails. I get the job of making sure it is kept up to date etc. So now looking at event log to see what the hell went wrong. Looked at towers in case I need to get a newer computer - many to choose from and the refurbished ones are cheaper with W10 installed than even taking this cpomputer into the shop to be checked over - at $200 before they even boot it up. Can get a decent computer tower for around $300-$400 latest everthing too. Amazon are doing these but some say not honouring warranties. E Bay have them too. So went to Local suppliers and nearly fell off my chair - what was refurbished - now new costs $4000 upwards not $400. Wow and I thought they had come down! This one is circe 2013 bought off E Bay new built by a bloke who still sells there still so if decide to buy different computer will go back to him. Not paying thousands for similar new. One that I liked refurbished for $549 is over $5000 new - gobsmacked! I have wondered too whether to try another OS like Linux and then wonder how long to get to be competant enough.
  11. Happy New Year Belatucadrus and all other members. 🍾🥂 Thank you to all who are keeping in touch .. 😊
  12. Another month passes and I take the opportunity to wish you a happy new year.

  14. Keyword stemming is a useful tool for web pages and search engine optimization. The process of keyword stemming involves taking a basic but popular keyword pertaining to a particular website and adding a prefix, suffix, or pluralization to make the keyword into a new word.
  15. Drivers for special devices. Unlike the ones you mentioned in the question details, these might not be included in Windows. Special-purpose drivers without backing device. ImDisk, Daemon Tools, many antivirus programs (with real time protection) all use their own drivers. Touchpad drivers. Several versions of the Synaptics Touchpad driver used to trigger blue screens on early builds; starting with build 10074 that got fixed. Either way, you shouldn't need to manually install any drivers, besides NVidia GPUs which don't get satisfactory drivers from Windows Update. Perform automatic update via windows update ; additional drivers will be installed by default.. Otherwise use third party software or apps to install missing drivers. 3.6k views
  16. Good to know. But windows 7 still has its own fan base. Microsoft is soon gonna end its support for windows 7 on Jan 14, 2020. Though users can migrate to Windows virtual desktop azure for getting extended life security updates windows 7 still it will be missed by win 7 geeks.
  17. I've been having the same issue. I went and uninstalled the update but it was reinstalled without me even knowing. Uninstalling it stopped the issue but it came back when it reinstalled. I have continuously uninstalled the update only to have it get back on the computer without me ever knowing it. Out of frustration I chatted with a Microsoft rep and ask how I could turn off Windows Update (know in the past I could) and he explained how so I did but to my surprise the update was installed again and even more unbelievable the Windows Update turned itself back on. I am at my wits end the problem needs to be fixed this is not acceptable, my next action will not be liked by Microsoft. P.S. the link you provided to stop certain updates does not have any choice to stop this update.
  18. Support It has already ended. You can upgrade to latest windows 10 or try using windows virtual desktop on azure.
  19. On January 14th, 2020, Microsoft will end all support for Windows 7. This means that computers that run on Windows 7 will no longer get important security updates and you will no longer be able to get customer support if you do have a problem. If you still own a computer that runs Windows 7, you should find out how to proceed. One among many options is to switch your operating system to Linux and use KDE Plasma. Here's an actual screenshot of a Plasma customization: Linux is part of an operating system that is used everywhere, from Android phones to cameras to servers or supercomputers. It is known to be very stable, secure (there has not been a single widespread virus or ransomware case for Linux) and the best thing is that it is completely free! As I already said, Linux is only a part of a bigger package which makes up your operating system. Another part is the way your desktop looks and acts. There are many options that you can pick from, but one that looks and feels very similar to Windows 7 is KDE Plasma. KDE Plasma is made by KDE (https://kde.org), a worldwide community that makes free software for everyone. We work together to create over 200 powerful and intuitive programs for you to use and be productive with. Without any modifications, KDE Plasma already looks similar to Windows. But because we believe that you should be able to make your desktop truly yours, we give you extensive customization options. You can see a video example where we quickly adapted the look to be more like the Windows 7 ("Aero") one at <link to video>. You can learn more about KDE Plasma at https://kde.org/plasma-desktop. For a long time, Linux was known as being hard to use and had only a very limited selection of software available. This is no longer the case. Using Linux and KDE Plasma is no harder than using Windows or macOS - editing countless configuration files and running arcane commands is not required anymore. You can also enjoy a massive selection of programs that cover a big majority of needs. Interested? Trying out and installing Linux with KDE Plasma is easier than ever before. You can follow the generic steps at https://www.wikihow.com/Install-Linux and then use one of the options from https://kde.org/distributions whenever need to choose a "distribution" (don't worry - all 4 options on this link are similar and any should work for you). This will also allow you to test KDE Plasma without modifiying your computer at all! If you have any problems or questions, then come to https://webchat.kde.org and join #kde-welcome. This is a friendly chat room where experienced KDE and Linux users will gladly help you through the installation process.
  20. Windows 7 updates are coming to and end, for most people, next week. I have a dual boot laptop with Windows 7 and a trial version of Windows 10. After Windows 7 no longer gets security updates, even if I have my Internet connection on Win7 turned off when I use it, is it possible that it's vulnerable via Windows 10? From within either OS I can access files on the other OS. Apologies if this sounds a silly question. I'm not a complete beginner, but know nothing about Windows security. I'd appreciate any tips or advice. (Somehow managed to accidentally give my own question 5 stars... and can't undo it.)
  21. Hi everyone, I need suggestions about a PC that I'm going to build. I want to create a pc for streaming games. My main focus is on Pubg mobile game which I will play on gameloop on windows 10. I currently play this game on i5 4th gen, 6gb ram and gtx 750ti. Currently the performance is not that good and I'm able to play it only on medium quality in which I sometimes face lags. Please suggest me a PC that can stream Pubg mobile smoothly on decent graphics. I also read somewhere that emulators consume more CPU then GPU for performance. Is this true or not? kindly guide me I'm a little but confused. Thanks
  22. Following are the drivers u need to install first- A motherboard driver, such as Intel motherboard driver, AMD motherboard driver, Asus motherboard driver, Gigabyte motherboard driver, MSI motherboard driver, etc. A display card driver (also called a graphics card driver), which enables your screen displays normally with good resolution. A network adapter driver, which allows your computer to connect to the Internet. An audio driver (also called a sound driver), which allows your computer to “make sound”. For example, with t a correct audio driver, you can hear sound from your computer and can input sound into your computer. Keyboard and mouse drivers, which allows you to use your keyboard and mouse to input and output data.

  24. What Windows version do you have on this tablet ?
  25. Recently, my tablet showed a crash of Windows and asked me for a new series to be active. This error: your windows license expires on 2020/01/27. contact your system admin to a product key. I haven't changed Windows so far, and I know that Windows and Serial are original. Are Microsoft Serials a Lifetime Warranty or Is Any Serial Working for a Specific Period?
  26. Homegroup isn't coming back to Win 10. Have you read these posts ? :- https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/since-upgrading-to-windows-10-october-2018-version/ https://www.windowscentral.com/how-share-files-and-printers-without-homegroup-windows-10
  27. Couple of months ago I added Dell Poweredge server to my home network with the intention to share files/media across my household. And to play around with networking. Network consists of: 1. Virgin Media provider, dual band wireless modem/router with 4 LAN ports. 2. My PC (Windows 10 Professional), hardwired to the router. 3. Number of laptops/tablets/SmartTV's (Windows/Android) running wirelessly. Server: 1. Dell Poweredge 840 running fresh install of Freenas (upto date version). 2 Hardwired to the router. First impressions. After connecting the server to the router and booting up, I recorded the assigned IP. Switched to my PC, typed in the IP in the browser - boom: Freenas page, logged in as root (password provided by the previous owner). Excellent. My Computer/freenas server - I am in the storage pool. So far so good. Checked few of my home devices (Android/Windows/SmartTV's) , I can access the server's storage! Brilliant. I started exploring the Freenas configuration. Not that I easily understood everything ... slowly ... I played a bit with setting up new account! But ... In the meantime a major update has been applied to my Windows 10. 1803. I could not set up any new account. I lost access to the shares on my Windows 10. Frustration. Frustration. My Windows 7 laptop still can access the shared drive. After searching the Web I found the reason. Windows 10 Update 1803 removed the Homegroup component. What are my options? 1. Manage the server with the laptop (a bit annoying, it is my wife's, and no access to my files)? 2. Reinstall windows 7 on my PC (dual boot) to have access to the server and all my files from my pc at the same time? 3. Or wait for Microsoft to restore (if possible) the Homegroup component on my SWindows 10 PC? Any comments, suggestions?
  28. First of all I wish to all the member very Happy New Year 2020 in advance. I am Chandrima, a fun loving girl who love reading book, riding bike, having fun, exploring new places all the time. I also love computing and exploring new technologies. I hope I will be a great addition in this forum.
