  1. Hi, I have a desktop PC, running with Windows 10 - 64 bit. It does not have built in Wi-Fi, so I use an ethernet cable. I want to adapt it to WI- FI. I am an elderly person, and I am looking for something that is not complicated to use.
  2. Ì have an Epson XP - 332 Expression Home printer scanner. I have had to unplug my desktop PC and printer for a couple of days. I have re- connected both devices. When I print a text document, it is in enormous text.
  3. Thank you for your reply. As I have stated, without the password I cannot open Thunderbird, so I cannot look at anything. The good news is that I have found the password in a file in Documents, and I can now open Thunderbird.
  4. I uninstalled Mozilla Thunderbird email, and then reinstalled it. It asking for my password, which I cannot remember. I cannot see anywhere on this page where it says " Forgotten Password ", so I cannot open Thunderbird.
  5. I use Yahoo mail on my PC, windows 10. I had a tune playing when I received new mail. I was having a problem with Yahoo, so I added Mozilla Thunderbird on my PC. Yahoo mail is working ok now, and I can use both servers. I prefer Yahoo, but the notification sound plays on Thunderbird, nothing on Yahoo. I did a bit of searching, and it said to make Yahoo my primary server. I have tried going into email settings, but I cannot see how to do it.
  6. My late wife loved to have bowls of pot pourri in various rooms. I still have them, but the fragrance has more or less worn off. I would like to refresh the fragrance. I tried a couple of small bottles, putting a few drops in each bowl. The fragrance is very weak, I suppose you get what you pay for. I would be grateful if anyone knows of a good brand that would give a decent fragrance.
  7. The PC has just again failed to boot up normally. I pressed F2 , pressed save and exit, I did not select anything else. The screen changed to a message saying something like " Do you want to save changes Yes/No", and I selected Yes. The PC continued to boot up. Is this correct.
  8. I have taken a better photo.
  9. https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/i/Greenveg1/20201225_103614.jpg?width=450&height=278&fit=bounds&crop=fill I have finally managed to take a photo. This is the first time the PC has failed to boot uo normally since my last message. It is not a very good photo, I hope that you can work with it.
  10. The PC failed to boot up normally this morning. I tried to take a screenshot, but it would not let me do it. Maybe it is because the PC has not booted up till I press a key, and when I do this, I lose that screen in the boot up process. I don't know if there is another way to take this screenshot. I have realised that I can take a photo of the message. I think that it is red text on a black background. I don't know how good the photo will be. I will try it at the first opportunity.
  11. The battery has already been replaced, same problem.
  12. When I boot up my desk top pc it usually boots up normally. However, a lot of times when I boot up it makes a beep note, and an on screen message tells you to press any key to continue. I do this, and the pc boots up. Is this something that can be rectified.
  13. I thought that I had cured the problem, but it still persists. The keyboard that I was using was proving difficult. A couple of the keys, especially the S did not function very well, sometimes it did, sometimes it did not. I prised off the keys, did a clean, but they still do not function properly. I swapped to my older keyboard, some of the letters are a bit faded. This older keyboard has a Power key, so I started to switch off the computer with this key. The computer now starts normally every time. Does anyone know the make and model of a not too expensive keyboard that includes a Power key. I include a link showing the Power key on my old keyboard. https://ibb.co/CbRs2xD
  14. I have replaced the CR2032 battery, and now my PC boots up normally every time. It looks like problem solved. Thank you all for your help and advice.
  15. Updates seem ok. The problem still persists. I have taken a photo, and put it on my PC, but I am struggling to upload it in this message. I cannot see an attachment icon to do this . I have only got this. https://ibb.co/kx9RP96
