    W10 flaky tonight & last night

    Hi Jim This could be related to your router. Try disconnecting it for 20 - 30 seconds then power up again. This will re-set it. Something else to try if the above doesn't solve it: NOTE - if you have login details for sites like this saved, you may need to login again with the password etc...

    windows millennium

    Hi, Sorry for the slow response - I have been away. There are two options when formatting. FAT32 - older systems with small hard drives NTFS - newer systems and large hard drives. You should use NTFS when prompted.

    windows millennium

    Hi and welcome to FpcH There should be no problem installing Millenium on an SSD. What size SSD have you got? Have you tried formatting the drive as the installation suggests ?

    Updating car satnav

    Hi and welcome to FpcH Neither do I. 1. I don't understand why the 58GB has to be written "back onto the stick". 2. I don't understand why, if the system WAS going to transfer the 58GB onto your 16GB memory stick you didn't get a warning that the 16GB wasn't big enough. 3. I don't understand...

    [Resolved] Can I save old W7 files with my AIO W10 desktop

    Not really "solved" Jim - more "resolved". I am sorry that you cannot get at your data. A specialst firm could access that drive but it would cost you around £300 for them to do it. :(

    [Resolved] Can I save old W7 files with my AIO W10 desktop

    Oh dear - not good news [ as you have probably gathered ] The ticking noise is made by the moving arm [ that holds the read/write head ] bouncing back to the stop. It is known as the "click of death" Your hard drive is dead I am afraid. The head cannot read any data from the drive. The other...

    [Solved] Windows 10 new build.

    Hi I am afraid that M$ has you over a barrel regarding updates. :( You cannot block a specific update as M$ consider updates as critical. You can postpone updates for about 30 days - maybe giving M$ time to iron out the bugs. It is possible to disable all updates in "Services" - this would...

    You could try a replacement ? These enclosures are usually quite reliable.

    [Resolved] Can I save old W7 files with my AIO W10 desktop

    No external drive showing Jim - not good. If this is a new disk - as you say - then it should show up when connected to the enclosure. Conclusion? Faulty enclosure. Contact the seller and tell them you have tried two hard drives [ one new ] in it without success. Exchange or money back...

    Hi Jim Are you sure that the hard drive is connected properly inside the enclosure? When you connect it up to the computer - do you get any sound [computer recognising a device has been plugged in] ? It may be that the hard drive needs formatting. To check .... Connect it up to the computer...
