A personal computer is a general-purpose computer whose size, capabilities and price make it useful for individuals, and is intended to be operated directly by an end-user with no intervening computer time-sharing models that allowed systems to be used by many people, usually at the same time. Personal computers may be connected to a local area network (LAN), either by a cable or a wireless connection, and through that to the Internet. A personal computer may be a laptop computer or a desktop computer running an operating system such as Windows, Linux or Macintosh OS.

Hi,

I have an issue I would like someone to help me to solve it.

I was searching how can I protect my Access Database file not to be used on another PC, so I find a way to create a dummy file and to call this file the first thing in my welcome form page.

I did face 2 errors after running it attached are the screenshots for both of them.

And the VBA code you can see it below:

Application.FollowHyperlink "C:\Windows\System32\startcheck.dll"

For the Security notice I did try many solutions to turn it off, but non of them did work.

And for the run time error I have no idea from where most probably from the VBA code.

Thanks for your help,

I have Dell Optiplex 3050 with a 256GB SSD.

I want to create an image of this PC so I can the restore that image onto a few more PCs of the same make & model.

This is the first SSD i've needed to create an image of. I booted up off my Macrium boot USB, opened up Reflect but it doesn't see the SSD.

I'm guessing the SSD won't be seen as it needs a running OS to recognise & read it, is that correct? If it is, how can I create an image of an SSD? Is it possible?

From what I understand, I can create a clone of the disk, but to apply the clone, I have to remove the SSDs from the other PCs, put them in USB caddies and apply the clone image that way.

Does that sound right?

Hello Experts,

I have purchased a Dell Optiplex Computer Desktop,  Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz to run my ESXi 5.1 host. The PC currently has 4GB of memory. However, I need to increase this to maximum permitted.

Can someone let me know what the maximum about of RAM I can add to the PC, and if possible let me know what type of RAM to purchase?

Cheers

Micro pc vr laptop in a case where the difference in design does not make a difference [I understand that a micro is designed to be in a office and a laptop on the go, but in some cases this does not make a difference and there is no need for a monitor and keyboard] is there any pro on a micro pc over a laptop?
(In price thy seem to be about the same)

A customer called a number claiming to be HP and spoke to someone who ran LogMeIn onto his PC, logged in, and told him that his computer has been the target of hacks and that people "in another state are using his computer to launch attacks."  Anyways, I logged onto his computer, did a full virus scan, reset his Windows Firewall settings, ran SFC, and checked all his startup programs and nothing come up unusual.  Is there anything else I can do to verify that there's no damage or back door left on his PC?

Hello!

The title may surprise you, but there really exists a problem with file writability, if you access on a file modified on a PC over Windows Phone 8.1! Actually, the problem first arose under Windows Phone 7.4, but I later switched to a then new smartphone under Windows Phone 8.0, which I later upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1 (it is a NOKIA Lumia 930).

I am using mobile devices to take notes for more than 15 years now. At the beginning, I used Windows CE and later the Windows Mobile 6. With the years passing by, the capabilities of the mobile devices increased, making it possible to enter directly the data into a Microsoft Office document (like Excel) without first making text notices in a TXT file and copying it in another "real" Excel file on the PC later on. But with the above error I am dealing with, I go "back to the old times" and have to copy and paste at home all the notices, if they are meant to be part of an Excel sheet that all-of-a-sudden became read-only.

Actually, I never make the files read-only intentionally. All happens when sometimes adding a column or a new tab when editing the documents over OneDrive in the browser, using Microsoft Excel at home or at business.

I once asked on a site about this problem. One guy – an Excel specialist – told me that the file I attached for scrutiny was including some code that cannot be edited by Windows Phone. So far, so good.

My question is:
  • Is it possible to *cleanse* an Excel file from any

Client has Win 10...got the phone call from the "Microsoft tech" says her computer has viruses...
She allowed him to remote in...but when he asked for money she said no and hung up phone...

Now when she turns PC on....it brings up a password required window...but she never used a password...
This is NOT the normal Windows login password screen....this is something different...

I will probably want to re-image this machine, but I cannot get thru the password and then get into repair...

Any thoughts and suggestions appreciated...

I had an issue with a PC losing the trust relationship earlier, therefore I had to remove it from the domain and re-add it. At the same time, a colleague was decommissioning an SBS 2011 server as it had been migrated over to Server 2012. However I was unable to join the domain and kept getting an EM saying the DC could not be contacted.

I tried adding the DNS of the server to the NIC, using domainname.local etc and nothing worked. I powered the old SBS server back on and I was able to join the domain. What I need to know is why the old SBS server is still needed to join the domain, I am looking down the DNS route, possible a rogue srv or ptr record but I'm unsure where to start.

Have a customer that wants me to build him a PC and he will be taking it to Europe.  Will a standard voltage converter work or should we be looking for a special power supply?  He mentioned that his place over there will run it at a different frequency than here, such that 50 Hz AC won't be compatible with 60 Hz AC.

Why certain combinations of keys doesn't work when pressed together? Sometimes there is also a beep.

While playing games, for example Tekken on a PC, I need to press 04 keys together for combos etc but it doesn't work.

I am wondering what could possibly be the issue and how do I solve it.

Thanks for help

Hi Guys,

we had a computer deleted in AD by accident and now the PC comes up with the following error: the security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship

i know that we can remove from domain and re-add and this should recreate the trust relationship however I do not know the local credentials!

is there a way round this in AD? i tried re-adding the PC into AD but this didn't work either?

I have a bunch of files on a windows 10 pc (all in the same folder), they are mostly pdf files, some have extension .pdf others have .PDF.

I recognize that Windows is not case sensitive to file names, but linux / unix / apache is. I want to rename all pfd's to .PDF.

Is there a way using file explore or do I have to revert to command prompt, ren *.pdf *.PDF. Or will that even work?

Thanks

I use Gmail account for my emails which syncs with my Outlook file on my PC. All my emails are coming through alright but when I did search of my mailbox that last email never was dated beyond 29th June 2017. On Monday I did a whole resync of the mailbox and now the search all emails I am after except those dated 30 June to 9 Jul. Why did the search stop at a date previously and now how can I make my search cover the missing period?
Thanks

Hi all,

I've installed Mac OS Sierra on a VMWare Workstation 12 PC. The install seemed to go ok, and VMWare Tools was installed ok as well.

But when I tried to take a snapshot, VMWare Workstation crashed. And it seems painfully slow, and accessing peripherals like printers and DVD-Drive seems a bit wonky as well.

Are there settings that I'm missing?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,  Please see the USB adapter picture attached. This adapter has one male port and seven female ports. As we know, usually we plug the adapter's the male end into PC etc, and mouse and keyboard USB's male end plug into the adapter's female port.

Now I want to use a male-to-male usb cable to replace the adapter's male port. That means one end of the cable plug into the PC and other end of the cable plug into the female port of the adapter. Do you think this would work well? Thank you
