  1. First you need to find WHERE it failed... Are you connected via WiFi? - if yes, did the WiFi stay connected to the router, or did the WiFi on the computer fully disconnect? if WiFi stayed connected, the next question is the router - what are/were it's lights doing? did the router it's self loose connection? if the router did NOT loose connection (all lights are/were correct) - do other devices still work when the computer looses connection? If you can answer these, it will better help pinpoint where there could be a potential problem...
  2. Firstly, Windows 10 has a built in "reset this PC" but will generally put all the bloatware back on - HOWEVER... Before using the MediaCreation Tool, you should first sign-in and setup a microsoft account on the new Laptop, this way when you reinstall Windows from the MCT, it will activate properly (just to be safe) when you come to use Media Creation tool, just boot from it, and during setup it asks you where you want to install, and shows you all the drives/partitions.. all I do to clear them, is delete any existing so there is only 1, full empty partition - then click next - Windows automatically sets everything up for you, no need to create any partitions or anything... But it would be faster, to just go through the Add/Remove programs and uninstall any bloatware (there probably won't be that much tbh)
  3. And this is why no one knows what to believe/do/who to listen to... 2 papers, both posted articles within 2 hours of each other... One reads: "Coronavirus deaths rising faster in UK than Italy" The other reads: "On Monday, a new analysis of data from both countries showed that deaths may indeed be rising marginally more slowly in Britain than they did in Italy." The Telegraph and The Guardian.... is there any wonder people are loosing trust in news outlets, and confused about info... https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/23/coronavirus-how-do-italy-and-the-uk-compare https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/03/23/coronavirus-deaths-italy-rising-faster-uk/
  4. sign to TPS and MPS, will stop 95% of calls and letters, as for emails, just report as spam when you get them, they will slowly reduce over time...
  5. It is doable, but not that easy, and the cost of the replacement component + time to do it, you might as well purchase a new one....
  6. It's been known with some cheap(er) ones not to work through RCD's across differing rings, at my mums old house you couldn't get anything through power lines from the living room, to the kitchen for example, and while all upstairs could connect to each other, they couldn't connect to downstairs at all... it may be that they have improved some (i'm talking about 15 years or so ago now) - but it was a known problem that RCD's can stop them talking...
  7. A run of external-grade cat5e ethernet cable and a WiFi extender / 2nd Router on the end... Will be best option/highest stability. Powerlines Generally don't work cross-ring, and through RDS, and if they do it's patch at best....
  8. It all depends on the app, someone might be a 'software developer' but not know Android or iOS etc..... If you get stuck though, drop me a PM
  9. Sorry to say, but I'm afraid that there may not be a chance to get it back... unless you can track down the original owner... Have you talked to any of the other mobile phone repair shops near by, see if they knew them? and honestly, it wouldn't have needed to go to a store to fix, a call to Voda Customer Services, or pop into the Vodaphone store they would have been able to fix it in a few minutes....
  10. Unfortuantely this isn't the case, they can choose which route, and often defaults to 'longest' (although fastest) as fairs are done on distance, not time.... Also means more drivers yes - but MUCH lower standards Less competition as the big players (like UBER) are too big for small(er) and new companies to compete with...
  11. well they are happening all year... South Africa is next, on March 14th, then it's California on 4th April.... https://eroica.cc/en/eroica-cc/events
  12. tbh most taxi's now run from sat-nav.... Apps like Uber, that include GPS and 'best route' etc for drivers to follow have reduced the standards and made it so 'anyone' can be a taxi!
  13. Just go to the 'Argos' part of sainsburys when you get there, can't miss it really..
  14. but that is missing several elements that make it valid html... buy in answer to your question, its black on white, normal size and doesnt change if i change windows to high contrast, or change colour scheme.. I can increse text size within the browser yes, but this isn't the same thing as I was talking about, totally different...
  15. If your wifi is poor, it's more likely your router isn't powerful enough to provide a strong signal through walls etc, many standard routers that ISP's provide are built to a cost... contact your ISP, talk to them... nothing to do with Gleesons
  16. no, every website doesn't "start out with users preferred typeface, size, colour scheme etc" that's not how it works...
  17. This isn't the case, a website's font size, color, type, style etc is determined by the website, not the browser... there's no settings in browsers to reconfigure websites, beyond zooming the page / text - in which some elements will be incorrectly rendered etc... Some people set high-contrast settings in their OS, and it some times works on websites, but again - if the website hasn't allowed it to be, and made all their elements work/display correctly, then it wont be usable...
  18. While at the same time, text that is black (or close to) on white jumps around a lot for some dyslexic people, and is harder to see for some visually impaired people, due to the contrast difference... This is why there needs to be a standardized set of 'accessibility' guidelines that ALL websites should follow, and to offer it as an option (similar to site languages) - but we are far from being there unfortunately!
  19. What small and low contrast text? all looks perfectly fine and readable to me....
  20. I don't know Java but know some PHP - not exactly sure on your code for calling the modal, but maybe pass the values of the start and last of the date-range through as a variable?
  21. If they are using the same apple account (or the account is signed in on both) there may be an option to sync available apps.. It's been a while since I used an iPhone honestly, and this is all I could think of based on my knowledge, but i'm sure someone else will come in with more info
  22. When I google for "sainsburys nescafe 300g" - and click the top link (Sainsburys website, title "Nescafé Original Instant Coffee 300g" ) I get an error...
  23. Potentially a mistake as 300g Nescafe is not listed on their website at all...
  24. Any time I have tried to contact an MP, via phone, it's always closed, 'leave a message' (and no one gets back to you) or just doesnt work at all.... pointless.....
  25. Windows 10 is free... to upgrade to, from 7/8... 7 support has ended, and there should be no reason to stick with 7 over 10 now... 10 can also be configured to be pretty much the same as 7, bar a few visual elements!
