Re: Laptop battery

I recently tried to use mine and found it did not work :( . It connected after I dialed but would not transmit or receive any audio. I put another ten pounds on the account to add to the nine pounds odd left from the last time I made a long journey. I bought a new (similar one) which will do any eme...

Re: A new laptop

It could be the bloatware that Windows 10 has that is being referred to as adverts. All the rubbish such as Candy Crush, Age of Empires and the numerous other apps that populate the start menu that Microsoft think we can't live without :twisted: These can be removed / uninstalled and notifications ...

Re: A new laptop

The "Ads" are not part of Microsoft Windows 10 operating system. AFAIK they are generated by the web browser being used. You can download a free to use ad blocker, I use AdBlock on all my PC and laptops. There are several others too. Yes, I have it installed on this desk-top as well as the lap-top....

My son has recently refurbished his house and all the rooms are connected with data wires, wireless doesn’t work.
You have mentioned this before I think. Is it something I could do here? The garage is separate to the house and is electrically fed underground. This house is 27/28 years old.

Re: A new laptop

My W7 operated desk-top went out with a bang. I thought I'd update myself and got a laptop. It came with W10 and all the adverts. I got very tired of the add's which I do not know enough about to get rid of them. So I found a local chappie that got my desktop working. I'd have done it myself but it ...

Re: Cheap connectors

I did my shopping this week and was surprised to see that a large jar of coffee was priced at £4.00 in the coop. In the shelf above it was half the size of the same make at £4.60! I got two jars :lol: . Yes there is a reason why things are cheap - a mistake by the pricer-upper :lol: ? I would normal...
