If your laptop is booting up slow, have you used a internet cache cleaner? The best free program is CCleaner. Go to www.PiriForm.com.

U1
User 1mz2017-11-06
I think this was answered somewhere yesterday, but I'm having trouble finding it. Basically, the answer was they are two separate apps, one for voice, one for text messaging. I believe the question was expanded to "Can you use your Google Voice number to register with Signal?" to which the advice was "no harm in trying".
U1
User 1xw2017-11-05
can Signal be used with Google Voice?
U8
User 8ku2017-11-02
In that case, it is probably an issue with codecs. Installing and using VLC should take care of it.

Uz
User zy62017-11-02
Yeah, going from any OS to Windows 8 is a downgrade indeed! No pressure here, but why can’t you just go to Windows 10? If any OS is constantly hardened against security violations is Win10. Yes, Microsoft has been conservative about the hardware that can handle Win10 ( no PC older than 2013, and so on). I have two old HP laptops, one with an Intel Celeron CPU and 4GB of RAM. Other than some minor “senior moments” they run well on Win10. Cyberspace has become a “No Man’s Land” and you need a strong, defensible operating system.

Try downloading Ophcrack to a disc or thumb drive. Use it to crack the password. Other than that, why are you still using Vista? I understand that ardent fans get over its flaws, but you realize that Microsoft ended support back in April? Going online invites all kinds of attacks. Clear your problem and invest on a current OS.

You need to be much more specific since there is no single tome covering the entire topic. Even if there was something like that, it would be the size of an encyclopedia.

U8

The biggest difference is the number of primary partitions allowed under each scheme. MBR allows up to 4 primary partitions or 3 primary partitions and one extended partition which can contain an unlimited number of logical partitions. GPT allows up to 128 primary partitions. MBR can be used with UEFI though GPT is more efficient on current systems especially with larger hard drives.

Well yes your router needs a connection to the outside, whether that is a phone line, cable line or fiber optics.
U1
User 1f92017-10-08
Thanks for the help, I'll give it a try. I just have one question: isn't there some special outlet in the wall that I need to plug the router into for it to work? I might be wrong and thinking of a phone line, but I thought that there was something that you had to plug it into.
Uo
User o3x2017-10-08
OK, there is half of your issue. Having your router below your main level will cause issues, most of the time laptops will be affected before mobile devices but the more devices you add to the network the greater the problem will be. You need to move your router to the main level of the house and allow the signal to then drop to the rest of the house. Wireless signals do not travel upwards very well, especially through a floor.
U1
User 1f92017-10-07
But my phone and other computer can get wifi there, which doesn't make sense
U1

U1
User 1f92017-10-07
My router is in my basement and I'm in my main house, besides being up a floor I'd say that I'm only about 10 to 15 meters from where my router would be. There are several walls between it, though...
Uo
User o3x2017-10-07
Just how far are you from the router when this happens? And how many walls 8n between?
U1
User 1f92017-10-07
I just bought a pre-owned HP ProBook 455 (I think that it is a Generation 1) and have been having some wifi problems with it. When I move too far from my wireless router, the laptop drops the wifi. I've tested the problem in both Windows and Linux, so I think that it might be a hardware problem. Do you think that there is anything that I could do to verify that it is a hardware problem or to fix the wifi range issue?

I could take my HDD, drop it in water, set it on fire, smash it with a rock, etc. etc. and have no concerns about my data. This applies to any of the 3 computers I use on an almost daily basis. The secret is called "backing up your data"....

The only way I know how to do that from a non-functional HDD is to pay a pro, and even then it isn't guaranteed.

Internal or external drive?
U1
User 1us2017-10-04
Did it get dropped or jarred at some point?
U1

Yeah if it was working properly then at least when you plugged it in externally you'd hear it (or feel it) start spinning.
U1
User 11o2017-10-04
The problem seems to be that the hdd isn't even making any spinning sound i.e not even getting supply of power

CPUs in general aren't preferable for mining since difficulty of mining a Hash became much more difficult. Even investing in new GPUs isn't adviced. Mining using GPU can be beneficial if electricity is cheap at where you live. Mining over CPU sounds ridiculous. Probably cost of cooking would be as much as what you would earn from mining.

I second John Wheeler's tip. We're talking HP's and Dells. Stay away from obscure brands. If JW's metrics seem too much now, remember that you'll put that laptop through its paces for the next five years at least. Software will become more complex, and beefier machine will meet the challenge.

❗First of all: Check how much RAM does your CPU support. Do that by searching "ARK [Intel CPU model (eg i5-6040 M)]" on Google. I believe it will support at least 12Gb just fine since it has 64bit capability. Your options: 2+4 = 6Gb RAM 4+4 = 8Gb RAM 0+8 = 8Gb RAM 2+8 = 10Gb RAM 4+8 8+8 You got the point.

User vm42017-09-17
Having different size sticks on any slot is fine. What matters is the clock speed of RAMs. You can have 1 of 4Gb and 1 of 2Gb RAM sticks but if (assume that) 1 of them has 1600Mhz clock speed and other has 1800Mhz. Both RAMs will run on 1600Mhz speed.

Hi Everyone, I have a question on Hardware of my laptop - RAM upgrade Product Name: HP Pavillion DV6 - 2125 TX Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit) I currently have 2 RAM slots with 2 GB RAM cards inserted in each. So total is 4GB now. I want total of 8GB RAM now. My questions: 1) Should I get 2 cards of 4GB each? Is it mandatory that always both slots should have equal capacity RAM cards? 2) Or Can I remove both 2GB Ram cards & insert one 8 GB card in one slot only? 3) Or Can I just get one card of 4GB RAM and replace any 2GB card in there? so total becomes 6 GB, is this allowed? (I need to upgrade because I work on Java and I need to use multiple IDEs and it does need higher size RAM) Please advise. Thanks in advance!! :)

However, those solutions require software to make the process work, so you would need to find a way to initially plug in the desktop to a monitor to set them up. I think I'm right in saying that there is no direct way to use the laptop screen as an external monitor though.

Battery Replacement would be a better option than uninstalling updates.
Uv
User vm42017-09-11
Did you had better battery life when you bought it? If so, I can think of 2 common reasons. 1. Li-ion batteries experience 15-20% drop on capacity every year due to aging. If battery is over 3 years old then replacing is only option. 2. There are so many background tasks running that you aren't aware of. Click Ctrl + Shift + ESC together to open task manager > Go to start up applications > disable unnecessary applications. (There are also drivers are listed there such as touchpad, printer and audio. Double check before disabling something) > restart computer (will take longer to start)
Uo
User o3x2017-09-10
Was going to say removing updates is more likely to increase battery use from the extra potential malware running itself in the background... 😜
U8
User 8ku2017-09-10
In most cases, battery life will be better WITH the updates. Updates tending to have a negative impact on battery life are feature updates that add more background tasks to the system. The other side effect of removing updates from a system is the increased vulnerability caused by the removal of security patches.
