    Lenovo Ideapad320-14ik8 internet browsers freezing

    Laptop not connecting to Wifi

    Forgot to mention, I suggested Ethernet cable, but he is currently using the only one he has to connect his laptop to his (supposedly) wireless printer. His printer can be temperamental, but I have never met a printer that wasn't, to be honest.

    Laptop not connecting to Wifi

    Hi Went to Dads yesterday. He said that sometimes the laptop freezes too and he has to restart it. Anyway, I followed your instructions. Nothing next to the wireless adapter at all. In fact, the laptop behaved for me. I cleared his cache and turned off notifications that were bothering...

    [Solved] Error message: System error

    I uninstalled WPS Office. Looks like it was a pre-installed app. Dad hasn't complained since I took it off, so I hope that has cured the problem.
