It comes in three’s …


Luck, that is. Or so people say. Well If it’s right, then I’ve just had my ‘three’ with eBay. The first one, with the mouses (mice … meece…?) was resolved, but since then another two issues have occurred. Both of them are leading up to a successful conclusion, but it’s the time and the trouble … Continue reading It comes in three’s …

It is getting there …


I picked up the new laptop on Thursday. K*** ordered it Wednesday afternoon and it was ready for collection Thursday lunchtime. The thing with Argos and her cash-back site was a non-starter as her cashback site no longer deals with Argos. So that was a bit of a disappointment. But we still managed to get … Continue reading It is getting there …

Gone to meet its maker I think …


I knew it would happen at some point. It’s been a bit off for a week or two now. Then a week last Thursday, there was a major issue starting it!

He uses it to watch YouTube videos, and that's about all. His other machine is a Windows 10 laptop that he … Continue reading Can’t believe it worked …

However, and I am touching as much wood as I can find, things seem to be a little better at the moment. Many of the problems seemed to be with … Continue reading Problems still ongoing…

Problems might just be gone …


For a few weeks now, I've been having performance issues with one of my Windows 10 laptops. I've uninstalled software that I rarely use, but the issue seems to have remained. What happens is that I'll be using for example Microsoft Word and suddenly it hangs with the message "Word is not responding" and this … Continue reading Problems might just be gone …

Still going – just …


The issues with the laptop continue, although they seem to be not as bad as they were at the beginning of the week. After reading some the comments online, I'm more and more convinced that at least some of the problems are linked with the last Windows update. The annoying thing is that whereas at … Continue reading Still going – just …
