  1. Thanks Tx Redneck for the notification. It worked fine. Glad the members were able to fix it. rgsmile <>
  2. TxRedneck, you said , "As to not getting your responses via email, there was a forum software update recently and it may have "broken" any subscriptions to topics you had in place. Remove said subscription and reapply it, then let's see if that problem is corrected. If not, I'll get with the forum software folks to see what's goin on." Would you do so. I would like to get responses. Thanks in advance. rgsmile <>

  4. The check is back in the rectangle with an empty circle.
  5. Thanks so much for your help. I unchecked "Notification". I will now close out and then reopen to see if I get any responses. My main problem with win 10 is temporarily solved. I traded my win 10 to one of my grandsons for his win7. So, I'll be Happy until January of next year when win 7 goes non-support. Thanks again for being patient with me. rgsmile <>
  6. This is the only subject that I am using and there is a check mark on the box: "Notify me of replies".
  7. I checked out Windows 7 Emulator for Windows 10, and it looked to me to be for gamers, which I am not. I have trouble understanding new stuff and would get lost quickly. Can a win7 hard drive replace the win10 HD and work? Also, I had to come into the pit to get the responses. None have been sent to me at all. Am I doing something wrong, or omitted something? What did I forget to check, or uncheck. rgsmile <>
  8. Thanks for the responses. I never knew about needing special win7 drivers to get out of Win 10. I will take a look at Windows 7 Emulator for Windows 10. I had to come into the pit to get the responses. None have been sent to me at all. Am I doing something wrong, or omitted something? rgsmile <>
  9. I went into recovery to remove everything, but at the end it just wants to reinstall win10. So I did something wrong. Please help. Thanks in advance. rgsmile
  10. Thanks, Tx Redneck, for the response. But, I do not want the Win10. I have no patience to learn a new system. I did try playing around with it and only became more confused. Using a PC and enjoying it, is the best thing in the world. At 81, I don't need many things to be happy with. But, my pc is one of them. I had bought 5 refurb pc's before this one, and they were all win 7. But I had to return all of them as they all had something wrong with them. It's as though the suppliers did not care about win7 as they knew they would stop getting Microsoft support. So, I thought I would at least try win10. No more. Please help me back to win7 on the Lenovo. "I have no idea if this PC ever had win7 installed. And I do not know how to check for that. I have a killdisk which will not do anything. Will not boot with a new start, I have a win 7 install disk with product key. will not boot with a new start. But I don't know even what to do or how to get into the bios if a change would be needed. Even if I got to the bios, without some good instruction, I'd be lost. Please help if you can and if so, I thank you in advance." I think if I could just get started on a install of win7, I would be happy. I never found your reply until this early AM. I did have the "Notify me of replies" with a check mark. Did I forget to do something. Also, I attempted to set up a profile, but it says something about removing text file. No idea what that means. Why do outfits keep making changes when every thing works fine? rgsmile
  11. I just bought a refurbish Lenovo with Win 10 on it. It is my first taste of win 10 and I hate it. At 81 I don't have the knowledge, memory or desire to use win 10. I have no idea if this PC ever had win7 installed. And I do not know how to check for that. I have a killdisk which will not do anything. Will not boot with a new start, I have a win 7 install disk with product key. will not boot with a new start. But I don't know even what to do or how to get into the bios if a change would be needed. Even if I got to the bios, without some good instruction, I'd be lost. Please help if you can and if so, I thank you in advance. Rgsmile PS: I haven't been here for awhile and used to spend a lot of time here.
  12. I am using Win 7 until I get a Win10. I could not continue with windows mail and chose to pick Thunderbird for my email. But, when I downloaded it, I must have agreed to use imap, which TB uses for everyone. But my emails getting sent to me from Frontier/Yahoo and then are deleted from the server. imap does not have a checkbox to stop deletions. I can go into the settings and see the imap. Can I just change it to pop3, or are there other changes? Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
  13. Thanks, Nigsy, for the response. The 2 suggestions you made are confusing to me as I've never had to do them before. The Lenevo worked fine a month to six weeks ago, (I seldom use it, only when visitors are here), but now it doesn't work. I have a 25' HDMI cable that I've used for a couple of years. Could HDMI cable end be bad? Or Lenovo input be bad? I have a 4 year old 42" Haier TV that is seldom used and only for the HDMI. No idea what to do next.
  14. HDMI1, when chosen, Leads to a blue screen. PC is set on Netflix with a movie. HDMI2 does the same. These 2 are from the TV. Only one HDMI port on the Lenovo. F keys have no symbols. There was no option for "output device" in the properties graphic.
  15. Yes, there are four, but we have always used HDMI1. And there is only one on the Lenovo.
