    Is old HP desktop suitable for Zoom?

    Thanks for understanding. I too am getting on a bit, not to mention the problem of retention of new information . I still enjoy a challenge, but skyping, or zooming have not been that important for me to learn lately. I have come to terms with WhatsApp though and it's been nice to see family...

    Is old HP desktop suitable for Zoom?

    I appreciate the link and I've had a quick look. Most of it goes above my head. If I say I've never had a microphone or a video link etc., and have never gone into this kind of thing, you'll get the picture. I have 2 speakers attached, and a set of headphones to listen to YouTube and my...

    Is old HP desktop suitable for Zoom?

    I'm being pressured to attend a Zoom meeting. I've no idea if my old HP desktop is capable. Its years old and is Pentium (R) Dual-Core CPU E5800 @ 3.20GHz. I'm not a hugely technical person, and for now I'm happy with it. I'm not sure I want to Zoom, but just curious if I could. I don't...

    SOLVED Cant open after PC goes to sleep.

    I have had this problem for 18 months, and just received the following advice on this forum. It was suggested that I go into settings, and 'personalization'. There is an option there to have 'spotlight' or 'slideshow' or a picture of your own choice. I have chosen a picture from my own...

    SOLVED Constant picture change affects my getting into Windows.

    I did follow above advice. I did find the 'spotlight' option, and the 'slideshow' option, and chose to have one of my own pictures. I'll see how that affects things. It's been very annoying this past 18 months, to have the PC not wake up, several times a day, upon returning after a period of...

    SOLVED Constant picture change affects my getting into Windows.

    Not sure of the advice given above. I've not set any pictures. These pictures are there, and change each day almost. I press any key, then I get my Windows window where I type my code to get into Windows, then desktop and so on. It's just a theory I have that these pictures are the problem...

    SOLVED Constant picture change affects my getting into Windows.

    Sometimes I can't get to the log in page for Windows. I have to close PC manually. When I boot up again, that's when I notice that the 'pretty scene' has changed (yet again) from what it was before. I think the picture change causes the PC to 'not wake up' again properly.

    Copying & pasting via the web recently.

    When I checked again the following day or two, I had 1709. It's a bit odd, because my updates come in automatically. I've since been on a few sites and successfully copied and pasted OK. I keep notes, and discovered that a similar thing happened about a month ago. Hopefully just a few little...

    SOLVED Avatar Requirements For Forum

    As you've probably gathered by now :) I'm of an age, and have somehow stumbled along with my desktop without being adventurous and learning everything there is to learn. I've never used Paint. However, it's a challenge, and I'll be having a look. On the one hand posting questions on Windows...

    What about this new krack hack?

    Thanks. I may have something that came with the router. I let my husband plug everything in, so say no more. I popped into Tesco yesterday, with whom we have our contracts. It's not a nMS phone - mine is a Doro. I like it. I came on to this thread simply because it mentioned 'phone'...

    What about this new krack hack?

    Thanks for that, but I'm not sure if I dare try that. I've had a few scares today, including a phishing e-mail. I think an early night is called for.

    What about this new krack hack?

    I just got the router a few weeks ago from TalkTalk as a replacement. Shouldn't it be OK? I'm not sure where to start in updating firmware:(. I still haven't gone wireless and connected to the internet yet with my new phone as I've been occupied elsewhere and didn't feel I was ready for...
