  1. its not OTT, Its the linux way! lol would love to understand the thinking on how changing to linux just to use RDP ( which is already native on the machine the OP is using ) to solve the issue.
  2. as above really. If they are all on the same network in different rooms, RDP is great, in the same room, KVM switch is the way I would do it. Without getting to complicated for access away from the network, teamviewer does the job. Then you get into enterprise stuff.. I run software from Itarian at work and that gives me everything from mobile device control and monitoring to remote desktop access, monitoring of systems, batch device update control and a support ticket system. Anything computer related is registered in 2 offices and controllable from anywhere I am.... current have 56 devices run this way including 3 machines located in the Philippines and I was lucky to start using this system before they started charging for it. unfortunately im only scratching the surface of what it can do as im not a network administrator.... just a guy that likes computers at work. lol
  3. how long does a cmos battery last....... years. laptops usually have access panels underneath, pop them off and have a look. doesnt sound like thats the issue though. As others have said, need a bit more as a black screen could be anything... does it try to boot? does it boot with a power cord in? what was the cause for the overheating etc etc
  4. I just tried bbc radio sheffield online, no vpn, normal firefox browser and it works just fine.... im in australia btw. bbc tv online or bbc iplayer is a definite no though.
  5. press and hold it..... does the menu appear? mystery solved.
  6. just another email scam.. delete and move on. nothing to do with windows or MS updates.
  7. geeze.. talk about scaremongering. Your W7 machine isnt going to stop working. It just wont get security updates. Suggesting to someone to run windows in a linux VM environment is just dumb, especially for those that arent tech savvy.
  8. two words..... rainbow tables. I used to have an app that would brute force wifi passwords to see what worked and what didnt based on standard wifi passwords per ISP. It was suprisingly good at passing them! it certainly prompted me to change all mine!
  9. ugh... why do these threads always end in another MS vs linux epeen competition. Give it up... linux isnt the greatest still and Yes I have tried it. Im with you ghozer. Ever since W10 I have been running windows built in AV with zero issues. It even grabs the (*ahem*) 'files' I dont want it to!
  10. if you can boot into download try pressing the volume up instead of down. This should get you into recovery where you can hard format the tablet. The fact you can boot into download is good. It means you can still recover the tablet via Odin with the correct files.
  11. un install the gfx drivers and update. Had this on 2 desktop pcs that run twin and triple displays and W10. Royally stuffed up the multi monitor after an update and had to re install the gfx drivers to get it to work on both machines. I assume a laptop would be similar.
  12. Depends on what 'drone' it is. Edit: I should really read a bit more closely... I would send it to an official DJI repair shop. Ghozer... what are you looking to get into? I fly freestyle fpv quads so happy to answer any questions regarding quads..... (not drones... )
