Other / Get a Bluetooth Earpiece for Smartphone?
« Last post by Geek-9pm on December 15, 2018, 12:21:59 PM »
I have never had a wireless earpiece for a smartphone. Now I am thinking about it.
Maybe like this one:

But I do not see the point in paying $60 and more.  On eBay there are some from Chins  for about $17 or less that claim to have the same specs. Is the difference in quality real?

What experience have you had with any low-cost Bluetooth earpiece?
Any suggestions welcome.

Hardware / battery charge light does not turn green
« Last post by hancycle on December 15, 2018, 08:05:01 AM »
I have a Toshiba Satelite C655. New battery. When the battey is charging the light is amber and should change to green when it is 100%. Lately the light turns off instead of turning green. With the battery removed and AC adapter plugged in the light comes on green.  Laptop powers up and runs fine on AC and battery.

Are you sure that you can only use "sort" and "uniq"? Those commands will help you work with a list of files, but you still need to generate the list somehow.

You can use the "find" command to list files and directories that match certain criteria, including file size:


specifically the "-size" option should help you out. There are examples at the bottom of the page

Actually he recommends us to use those two commands..
Other / Problem Windows Phone Restoreing.

Hi all!

I have a huawei windows 8 phone, I backed up my files and did a reset.  Now when I try and restore my files, it keeps failing and won't restore them

Thank you in advance. ยูฟ่าเบท
To do this, open the Network and Sharing Center and click on Change adapter settings in the left pane. you should see a list of network adapters. Press the Alt button (if the menu bar is not already visible) and click on the Advanced menu, and then choose Advanced settings.

A new control panel will pop up, and you should see it open to the Adapters and Bindings tab. In the top list should be a list of your network adapters, with an up and down arrow button to the right. This is the priority order of what adapter it will use when connecting to the Internet. Choose your Ethernet adapter and click the up arrow button until it shows at the top. Then click OK.

I've tried installing 2 different SSD's (WD Blue 250 GB and WD Blue 500GB). I bought a new copy of Windows 10 home directly from Microsoft which installed fine as well as all other software I wanted. All was fine for about 4 days on the 250GB / 7 days on the 500GB. Then the machine failed to boot with an error message -
"no operating system found. Try removing any drives without an operating system." (or similar).
I reinstalled my original HDD on the same SATA channel as the SSD's were on and it booted with no problem both times.
Is there something incompatible with my older ~2009 Gigabyte EP45-UD3R mboard running a SSD or what.
Both SSD 's were purchased from (and returned to) my local Walmart. Should I order a SSD from a more reputable source- I've run plenty of WD HDD's in the past including a VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS 10,000 RPM / 150GB, which has been in use for the past 9 years with no problems. Has WD gone off the deep end with SSD's?
Windows 10 / Re: Confused...I think my computer must be possessed

The printers have no support for windows 10 from HP or Epson but are supported with Windows 10's built in drivers. So when you plug the printer in, windows itself should load the drivers. I say should but with the new updates to windows 10 a lot of old legacy support has been removed.

How long before this happened were they sitting un used?.

With the Epson here is how to test the printer without being connected to the computer .https://files.support.epson.com/pdf/r220__/r220__pb.pdf
See on page 45 under Running a printer check
If it works ok after doing a couple of those then it is likely a Windows 10 driver problem.

For the HP

 Running a sample page

Turn the printer on.
Press and hold the RESUME button until the printer starts printing.
Release the RESUME button.

Running a self-test
Turn the printer on.
Press and hold the POWER button.
Press the RESUME button four times.
Release the POWER button.

Continuous "H" test
Turn the printer on.
Press and hold the POWER button.
Press the RESUME button eight times.
Release the POWER button.

If those tests give even printout then try reloading the drivers as others have suggested.
If still a problem then it's shopping for a new printer.

If you don't often need colour and only use the printer a few times a day or less then consider a black and white Laser

Oh, Patio, my old friend!  I have had these printers longer than the computer and got the disks out, ready to install the printers' stuff.  When I plugged them in, the computer continued on its own from there.  I didn't have to use the disks so I'm assuming, since they have worked just fine up to now, that everything was taken care of.  I've been using the printers for the past three years with this computer.  Where do I find if they have Win 10 drivers?
