    Fire Stick Storage & Ethernet

    Hi I've recently purchased a second generation Amazon Fire Stick. I'm reasonably happy with it--Ive got an ethernet adaptor and a USB storage cord. The good news is, both of these work as advertised; the bad news is, I can't use them both at the same time--if I plug in the ethernet, it connects...

    USB Drive terminally write-protected. Can't format it!

    Hi My previously-reliable Kingston 32GB USB drive has suddenly become write protected. The drive is recognized by my Dell Laptop which provides a helpful message that I cannot use it until I format it. When I attempt this, I'm told Windows can't format it--it's write protected. I've tried...

    New Outlook Problems

    Hi Couriant and thanks for your reply. I don't know why they've cut off support. I live in UK and when you call them there's a recording saying they're not providing telephone support :-( My ISP is BT and I'm using Gmail via Outlook I've tried all of those suggestions, including a new...

    New Outlook Problems

    'Morning all I'm running a Dell Inspiron 7010 laptop, Windows 10 and have recently purchased and installed Office 365 Home. My Outlook is a nightmare--often stops responding and I have to close in Task Manager and restart. Seems to be sending and receiving, but sent messages prior to the...

    MS Outlook 20016 not responding

    Hi I'm running Windows 10 on a Dell Inspron 17 5000 series laptop. A couple days ago, my Outlook hung up on an email I was trying to send to approx 60 contacts. It hasn't worked properly ever since. I've run the MS repair of MS Office through the Control Panel. It all seemed to work, but every...

    CD/DVD Drive not recognized

    Hi I'm running a Dell Inspiron 17 on Windows 10. CD/DVD drive used to work, but I haven't used it for a long time. I wanted to view a DVD today--No Joy. The ODD is recognized on the BIOS Main Page but nothing at all on Windows Explorer. I've tried all the standard fixes (except Dell...

    Windows Update Nightmare

    Hi Once again, I've allowed Microsoft to install a suite of updates and watched my Dell Inspron laptop PC slow to a crawl. I'm smarter than I used to be--saved a System Restore point before I let the MS update run so, as I've done the last three or four times, I watched my PC grind to a halt...

    Can't set primary boot to hard drive

    Hi I've recently windows-repaired my Dell Latitude laptop and run the Dell Update program and she's running better than she has in years. One small annoyance--during the process, the Boot priorities some how became rearranged and now every time I boot the PC I get 'start PXE over IPV6' followed...

    Cloning SD Card

    Hi I want to clone my SD card to use in a backup phone. I'm running a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the SD card is recognized on File Explorer and Device Manager, but not as a partition on Diskmanager. Consequently, I can't use EaseUS Cloning software for the job. How can I get my card recognized...

    C Drive Out of Space

    Hi For the past couple weeks, I've been getting a Google Backup message advising my 308GB C Drive is short on space. C Drive properties shows just over 1GB remaining space. I've emptied the Recycle Bin, deleted all my downloads and checked my other files and directories--Ive got nearly 100GB of...

    Changing User Account Problems

    Hi I've just got a new PC and populated my files and programs with a backup program. This left me with two User accounts in the C: drive. The old one was a work account that I want to get rid of and the other is a local administrator account. The old work account seemed to be the default so I...

    Printer gone rogue!

    Hi For the last month or so, my Xerox Workcentre 6015 has decided to print virtually everything in landscape and about 200%-300% magnification. My printer settings are pretty standard: A4 plain paper, auto orientation, etc etc and I don't see anything that would cause this behavior--can...

    Transcend SD card, HTC One (M8)

    Hi I'm not sure I understand the transcend SD card and its capabilities. I've formatted my 64GB SD card to transcend and only the transcend card shows up when I connect with PC. I have 46GB free space, yet often when I try to load an app, I'm getting an "insufficient space" notification...

    Can't add apps/widgets to Nova homescreens

    Hi I've just done a factory reset on my htc One. Htc backup failed miserably so I'm trying to manually reinstate my apps on Nova Launcher Prime. Long press and hold results in a popup of my homescreens in the background with no option to add apps or widgets. I've uninstalled/reinstalled Nova...

    Lost Programs after Factory Reset/Restore Dell Inspiron/Windows 7

    Hi After a successful factory reset and restore via Windows Backup/Restore, I'm missing a couple important programs (Adobe Acrobat; Paperport). Everything else seems to have restored properly. Is there still a chance these two are lurking on my backup Seagate external drive and, if so, how...
