Aha! That is why I cannot see them here - it's a different thread! DOH! Sorry, I am discombobulated.

I had a pullmanery embolism, SWMBO had two heart attacks then a triple bypass operation and her daughter and husby have been staying to help. Between the visiting, homecoming and follow up scans I am unsure whether I am coming or going.

Perhaps this week I'll be able to tackle the older W7 machine with the poorly power supply.

I will return to that thread for the power supply.
Jim.

Thanks for your assistance on this W10 machine. It will serve to run the model railway when I get it up and running - blinking adverts mutter mutter mutter.

I now have the my desk-top back with W7 on it and it did not cost a lot as he fitted a used chip in it. He said he was unable to get a new chip. The wireless board is replaced by a thing about the size of a camera memory. I did not realize it at the time but the USB's at the rear do not all work. The two on the front do and I can get by quite ok with what I have.

So, here is wishing you all a happy, healthy 2019. Thanks for the help in 2018!

I did look for your contribution page but could not find it. Have you abandoned it?
Jim.

Hi Jim
Happy New Year to you and your family.

Glad to hear that your W7 machine is up and running again and that it didn't cost you too much.

I have not seen the contribution link for some time.
Perhaps Bob removed it.
Thanks for the thought :)
