PostPosted: Wed Mar 14, 2018 12:02 pm 
Having a bit of bother with the computer lately.

It has started to freeze regularly and without warning when I click on a tab the screen goes blank and I have to pull the plug to shut it down.

Recently my son changed the graphics card and was using a remote link to work from home, he also downloaded some files from his office computer.

Can anyone shed any light on what is going on? ...

Came home this evening and it has stopped. (Think it went to sleep) gave it a shove and told it to get the few other updates. It then said lost internet connection (I should have guessed then) enter ...

 Post subject: Printers - and a potential legal issue
PostPosted: Thu Mar 01, 2018 9:00 am

Led me to consider what I've recently noticed....

I came across an HP printer and (after cleaning up the mess - giggidy) tested it by printing text/graphics and then a photo-quality output. Both were more than acceptable.

Then I fitted after-market cartridges and did the same. The text/graphics were just as ...

 Post subject: What to back up - a debate
PostPosted: Mon Jan 08, 2018 10:43 am 
We all know that you should "Back up your important information on a regular basis"

My question is what makes something important?

I make short videos (2-10 minutes average) nothing in particular, I have posted links to some on here. I keep the original unedited video as well as the edited version. I was debating about getting another storage device (Cloud is too expensive and is always ongoing payment) So I have decided to "take ...

Can anybody please give me a step by step guide of how to open a PDF file on my iPad please.
I have downloaded the Adobe Acrobat app to my i-pad but just cannot figure out how to open the file with it.
