OK, I have a very strange problem which recently started on my laptop (running Arch Linux) and it's got me really stumped! Basically my battery ran out whilst I was away from my laptop and it shut down... Which shouldn't really be a problem. But when I plugged my laptop in and restarted it a little later on, I could no longer connect wirelessly to my home network or see any other nearby wifi networks. It used to auto-connect to my home network using wicd. And up until this problem started, tools like wifi-menu, wicd-curses and wicd-gtk would show all …

When booting up my Acer Aspire 1690 laptop the fan starts but then quits after about 5 seconds. The system starts up nicely (OS starts up) it just doesn't have a fan anymore which basically renders the laptop useless. I already tried to clean the fan with compressed air and I even ordered a new fan, but to no avail. Anyone who had a similar problem? Or any idea how to fix it?

Dear Experts, I have a requirement to capture data from my workforce (4000+ users) on a regular basis. I've developed a form for this using MS Forms and it does it's job perfectly. However, due to GDPR constraints (and the nature of the data) I need to clear the data held in MS Forms every 7 days. I can't see a way to do this automatically via a script or otherwise. Can anyone help or offer any advice? Cheers

My sister likes to bush buttons, any buttons, all buttons. As a result, I felt her computer could not be fixed. I reinstalled Windows 10 pro for her from an ISO I got from MS. I had to reinstall Windows within Windows. USB would not work. The installation went well. Novice me, I thought I could use the CD Key stored in the BIOS for activation. Apparently that key was erased and replaced with a default key supplied by MS during installation. Now, it looks as is I will have to purchase a digital license from MS. AS the original …

I've been trying to find a way to filter the Event Viewer in Windows by the description instead of the event type/source etc. I figure that i need to use the XML tab to customise it as there is no option in the basic filtering for what I want. One reason why I want to do this is to find when I service was started. The sytem logs show when services stop and start but they all have the same event ID, Event Type and Source. The "description" I'm referring to is the text you see in the "General" tab. …

I’m dealing with a small SSD, and a 1 terabyte HDD. My issue is half the programs you install these days don’t even bother asking you where you’d like to install. About 90% of them I’m fine having on the HDD. What on earth - if anything - can I do to move an entitled, SSD-privileged program to my HDD and how do I repair the ensuing errors it makes?

Do you guys have any examples of networking terminology that some people pronounce in different ways that completely throw you off? Similar to GIF vs JIF but networking related. For example, there are different ways people choose to pronounce GUI, OSI, and CCIX. Any other curious examples?

A survey of attendees at Infosecurity Europe earlier this month showed 70 percent in favour of the dictionary definition (in this case the Cambridge Dictionary) of a hacker being amended. The amendment in question being to remove 'illegality' from the definition. The current definition of a hacker is "a person who is skilled in the use of computer systems, often one who illegally obtains access to private computer systems". So what do you reckon, DaniWebbers? Is it time that hacker was reclaimed entirely (rather than relying upon black and white labels) and if so what word should replace it as …

With the launch of Oculus Quest 2 (I have the original Quest), I was wondering if anyone had any favorite games they could recommend. I’ve been having a lot of fun with Tetris Effect somewhat recently. However, I’ve been getting a lot of migraines and have tried to avoid VR the past couple of weeks. I really thing Covid time is just getting to me and my poor sleep habits.

Issue: I need example.no-ip.org to point to example.no-ip.org:20202 I have read that this is not possible with just DNS. However no-ip.org lets me set up DNS SRV (records?). Ive have followed this guide to set it up, but it does not redirect to IP : PORT [url]http://www.no-ip.com/support/guides/other/configuring_srv_records_with_no-ip.html#1[/url] Still cant get it to work. example.no-ip.org only points to the IP, no port.

I can right click the folder 0000 and export it but I don't want to export the whole folder. When I right click the key: KMD_EnableBrightnessInterface2 it does not give me the option to export it. I only have the option to Modify/Modify Binary Data/Delete/Rename That's the only key I need …
