Re: poorly computer

You could try booting from the Windows install disk if you have one and select Repair Windows. You may also have created a Windows Repair disk or stick as part of the backup process which should do the same thing. If the disk is totally dead there isnt much you can do about it except swap it out and...

Re: poorly computer

Windows 10 updates can cause problems and Microsoft has pulled at least one off it's web site and is currently not issuing new ones except important security patches. I've had a few issues myslf and gone back to an earlier version. Search the net for details.

Re: My new layout

Looking good Brian. I much enjoy the building rather than the operational side too.

Re: poorly computer

I am running W7 on this desk top and removed Avast (anti virus and VPN) as they slowed everything down until it was painful to work. it now works fine. I'd have the memory sticks on your desk top checked out if it was mine. I tried W10 on a lap-top but it was full of adverts. I'd heard of peeps get...

Re: poorly computer

Also download a free copy of Malwarebytes and run a scan. The free version doesn't do pro-active protection though and I recommend the paid for version which checks every web site that your browser or backroom programs goes to. Always down load software from the orignal manuafacture's site which isn...

Re: poorly computer

Get onto command prompt as administrator if you can and run sfc /scannow This should check your windows files and repair them if they can. It will report if it finds anything. Hope you have good back ups. ps. You should not need to pay anything for Win 10 upgrade if you have a genuine windows licence.

Re: 12v LED strips. Old 2amp dc transformer

Thanks for the links, personal recommendation always welcome. Last time I had anything to do with electronics was soldering wires in chassis with valve bases! So my description of modern bits n bobs are a bit vague :roll: El84 and El83 valves seem to ring a distant bell. Rgds Strange you should say...

Re: Attaching backscenes to hardboard

I used double sided sticky tape, no creases or bubbles. That is good idea teedoubledee. That's a mouthful :) I think it would solve the bubble problem for sure. You could hold up one top end of the sheet with tape in one corner and work from there. You have done that before so could you tell me do ...
