    Windows 7 Problem with Facebook

    Recently updated my Win 7 32-bit PC to Win 7 64-bit. Reason for staying with Win 7 is that I intended using it as a stand-alone as my recording studio and for Photoshop, in-Design and a few other programs that I don't want to pay to update if upgrading to Win 10/11. I was using Debian for online...

    PC very slow after un-installing software

    Hi, got a PC running Win 7 32-bit, 4GB RAM and had just over 50 programs installed. 6 of the programs weren't used anymore so I un-installed them with Revo. I then re-booted and defragged the HD. Now the PC takes nearly 13 minutes to boot and nearly the same to close down. Thunderbird and...

    PC not able to access all photos - Galaxy A10

    Thanks for replies. Unfortunately I hate mobile phones and therefore not really familiar with their workings. Anyway, I don't use any method/software to access and download photos from any mobile phones that I or my wife have ever owned. I just connect the phone to the PC which shows up in...

    PC not able to access all photos - Galaxy A10

    Making a birthday card for my grandson, my wife showed me the photos on her Galaxy A10 that she wanted on the card. Connected the phone to my PC and opened the Camera folder, then DCIM folder and about 40 odd photos appeared. Unfortunately, many of the photos I needed were not on the screen...

    Can't access memory stick

    Sorry taken so long. I tried recuva but it locked up at around 52%. So I rebooted the PC with the stick already inserted and went to My Computer and there it was. So I clicked on it and it opened and was able to open a folder and access a few files. I then went to the list of documentaries and...

    Can't access memory stick

    Thanks for reply. I don't think it was capacity issues as I checked that before copy/pasting the video. There was 23GB free. Thought it could be the video but it played thru ok when I watched it on my PC. I suppose these things happen now and then with modern electronic devices.

    Can't access memory stick

    I've got a 64GB memory stick, no brand name, and I've been using it for over two years. It contains nearly 30 documentaries that I download from the net and watch via a media player connected to my TV. I was transferring another documantary onto it from my PC and eventually a message popped up...

    Possible router problems

    This is weird. Just did a broadband speed test on my PC and got: Ping - 186ms, download speed - 38.3Mb/s, and upload speed - zero. Did the same test on a PC in my son's old room (hard-wired) and got: ping - 141ms, download speed - 27.9Mb/s, upload speed - 4Mb/s. So it seems that the router...

    Possible router problems

    Thanks for reply. It happens on all sites, say I want to download a picture or reply to a forum, I just get the old spinning blue circle....until I re-boot the router. It happens on the laptop too, which is what my wife uses every morning to read the Mail On Line news. She cannot open stories or...
