Other / Re: Need help with uninstalled update for my smartphone
« Last post by Geek-9pm on Today at 02:58:52 AM »
You have had a bad smartphone experience.  :(
It is odd taht a new phone would need an update. Have yu made contact with the vendor? Is there some kind of warrenty? In the USA  some  electronic devices have a 90 day warrenty. If you are in the Usa, ask the vendor for a refund or replacement.

My own experience with smartphnes has been limited, but often the failure rate of smartphones is ,in my opinion, much too high. Best thing to do is to find a local dealer taht offers direct help at the time of sale.

You may have to buy a new phone.

Very easy to break this,

    Boot from install disk, accept the license before you actually come in the setup options press shift F10 to get a normal command prompt.
    Then explore what drive the hard drive is. During the boot from the install disk it mostly changes. Try from the drive and see if you see the 'normal' folders like windows, program files and so on.
    Then type in CD\, after that cd\windows\system32
    Then move sethc.exe to sethc.old.(syntax: move sethc.exe sethc.old)
    Then copy CMD.exe to sethc.exe.(syntax: copy cmd.exe sethc.exe)
    Reboot the computer the normal way, So that it end on the password prompt.
    Press shift 5 times for getting the sticky keys dialog, but not opens the sticky keys dialog but a normal command prompt.
    Now you have a command prompt with the system account, for short the highest account available on your machine.
    Now you can set with the net user command the password, create an account etc. for more help net.exe /?

Other / Need help with uninstalled update for my smartphone
« Last post by lisashomeoffice on June 25, 2017, 11:09:21 PM »
I purchased this Moto g4 plus smartphone recently.  A message came up saying that there was an update that was needed to be installed from Motorola.  I downloaded the update and after it was completed I hit the icon that said "install" on it.  After 10 minutes a message came back saying: Start up Failed. Your device didn't start up successfully. Use the Software Repair Assistant on computer to repair your device.  Connect your device to your computer to get the Software Repair Assistant.Below that it says: AP Fastboot Flash Mode (secure)failed to validate recovery image.  ERROR Failed to pass validation.backup to fastboot.  Fastboot
reason:   I tried to find a software repair assistant on my computer:however, there was none.  Is there someone out there that might be able to give me a clue as to what to do?  I am real new to smartphones and other related wi fi devices. Any suggestions out there would be appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

Networking / Re: Things not using available bandwidth

For what it is worth...
Yes, stuff is slower tahn it used to be. All you can do is make sure your connections are all working right and after that complain to your local provider.
Netflix isamong the top streaming servies, butr it is far from optimim. Part of the problem, IMO, has to do with the whould In ternt. It is like an adolesent taht is growing too fast and its clothing does not fit anymore.

Here are some who say the Internt is not delivering the promised bandwidth..
