• What are the differences between Notebooks and Laptops?

    I don’t know the difference and I took my Lenovo 510S out in the hot sun for a few hours for two days and the back plastic cover small corner melted causing tiny plastic of Ethernet hole entrance to break off which I didn’t notice till today. When you buy these things they never warn you that you can’t use it... show more
    I don’t know the difference and I took my Lenovo 510S out in the hot sun for a few hours for two days and the back plastic cover small corner melted causing tiny plastic of Ethernet hole entrance to break off which I didn’t notice till today. When you buy these things they never warn you that you can’t use it outside etc. And also I don’t know the difference cos you can use both of them for computer programming, they do same things except I chose this laptop cos it’s thin and white coloured. The damn thing is getting old I noticed today as well as the colour is not as strong and the small dirt streaks can’t be wiped off. I only use it for my uni work and browsing, nobody said anything about using it outside in hot temperatures what the hell?!

  • I want to make a 'fake' Facebook profile so I can ask some questions on FB pages / groups.?

    I'm not going to be using this in any negative way, just to ask questions on some 'open' Facebook groups which I don't want my friends knowing that I do. How do I do this? Profile pic / no pic? Name? Info? Cheers. PS: Is there any possible way people would suspect that it is me?

    My operating system is windows 10 and on my C (SSD) drive is used for that only. I have an external drive called E which caused my computer to freeze. When I unplugged E via USB, my computer ran fine, but not when plugged in. Me being computer illiterate, I went online and tried to run a chkdsk on E, but ran it on C instead - screw up. Upon restart it ran the chkdsk but was stuck on 12 percent for 16 hours, so I turned off my PC. Now when I start my PC, I get to a black screen with circular spinning dots and it never advances beyond that - not even a hint of anything windows What can I do? I do not have my windows 10 installation CD. Is my drive gone? Help please.

  • Is Gmail a secure enough place to store my passwords and other info?

    If I wrote myself an e-mail with all my passwords and other info and put it in the 'important' folder would that be secure and stay there forever? I don't feel like my sticky notes are secure enough.

    Best answer: No.

    DSL needs the phone line connected via a DSL unit at the other end & that's got to be from an ISP that you have an account with, so the modem/router can log in.

    You could do it with an old dial-up modem, giving you a maximum speed of about 56kbit if you are lucky; that works through the normal phone audio circuits and you can dial-in to an ISP anywhere in the world, for the cost of the phone call.

    There are still a lot of ISPs that provide free "dial-up internet" service, if you do a search in your area there may be some.

    You would need a 56K modem that can connect to whatever computer you are using, eg something like this:
