    Outlook 2016 not receiving hotmail, live e-mails

    Hi Swordfleece , I don't use Outlook , used to use Hotmail long ago , so no help there , have you thought of doing a System Restore to a day or 2 before the problem Started , maybe worth a Try .. Regards Philip..

    Windows 10 antivirus

    I've always ran Avg Free until recently , though i've now switched to Avast Free on all my pc's and i like it , it also scans and lets you know when Software ect is out of Date . Far as i know Defender will auto Switch off soon as another Anti Virus Program is installed so there's No Need to Uninstall Defender .Regards Philip..

    Loading issues

    Hi , This should allow you to see the Check Disk Results ,, Press the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog, type powershell.exe, and press Enter. In PowerShell, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter. (see screenshot below) NOTE: To paste the copied command into PowerShell, you will just need to right click in PowerShell. Enter the command get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname="Application"; id="1001"}| ?{$_.providername –match "wininit"} | fl timecreated, message | out-file Desktop\CHKDSKResults.txt You will now have a CHKDSKResults.txt file created on your desktop that is the log file of your chkdsk scan results from Event Viewer. Regards Philip .
  8. Had this happen to me on a friends pc a week back , she uses GMail , so i thought that was the Reason as the Email Client is Not Installed on her Pc , i use Thunderbird myself or windows live Ect an Never had that Problem . Regards Philip.
  9. Good News Terry , Dang , gave up on the Q-Flash , Decided i'd Retry ABios , saved it from MBoard CD , Installed , Followed Prompts , Chose from USA Site , an Installed , Version you Linked to Installed , dated 18-6-2009 , so All Peachy . Decided i'm not going to Install Win 10 on Q9550 Pc , this one , though will now Update Bios on other E8400 Pc , Exact Same Motherboard Rev too , an Install/Try Win 10 on it Instead , Appreciate all the Help Both You an Caintry have Provided , Many Thanks . :clap: Ps , Just did the E8400 too , run both pc's on UPS so felt safe doing ABios , All Good , Great Day Here ..
  10. Hi Terry , I had looked at the link you posted Prior , but i don't get this Option there ,, If your BIOS is flash protected, please do not enable BIOS Flash Protection under Advanced CMOS Setup (AMI BIOS) or Advanced BIOS Features (AWARD BIOS) in BIOS menu. Nothing Shows on the Bios under both them Options as Mentioned Above under Advanced Cmos or Advanced Award Bios , It just don't show , so if it is set to Enabled already by Default , which is what i'm thinking it is , i can't set it to Disable , i'm at a loss here ok . Regards Philip ..
  11. Hi Terry , I was looking into Bios Flash early July , this in Reply from Caintry-Boy , 02 July 2015 - 07:52 PM Tried with @bios , No luck with that either , when i put win 7 dvd in drive , i Don't get the Options that show on the QFlash page to Save @Bios in Programs . I wonder why my Board has QFlash/@Bios Options when they Can't be used , anyway , i'll move on as Pc's have no Problems , it was just for a Learning Curve that's all . Thanks Caintry . Philip.. I Downloaded an Saved the Bios you Posted link too ok , but once again i Don't/Can't get the Option to Update from Flash Drive , only Floppy A or B , an i don't run a FDrives on pc's , Q-Flash ver 2.05 showing in the Bios , maybe i'm Missing Something , any Idea Appreciated , Thanks. Regards Philip ...
  12. Thought i'd ask here as i'm Unsure if i can Upgrade to Windows 10 , Current Os is as Above , 64 Bit , 4gb Team Dark Ram , a couple of weeks back i ran the Upgrade Tool to see if i could Run Windows 8.1 , and what i got was this Statement ,, You Can't Install Windows 8.1 because your Processor Doesn't Support Compare Exchange 128 , Whatever that Is . My Processor is Q9550 Intel Quad 2.83Ghz , Motherboard GA-EP35-DS3P Version : x.x Award Software International 02-27-2008 , so Not Uefi Bios . My thoughts are if that's Correct an Windows 8.1 Upgrade is Out , then so Would be Windows 10 Upgrade , what i Don't Understand is why Would i get the Option to Upgrade to Win 10 in the First Place on my Two Pc's , this one as Above , other one same Board ect only has E8400 Core 2 Duo Cpu . I Sure Don't want to go through all the Download only to find Windows 10 Won't Install/Run , Also i was Only going to Upgrade 1 of My Pc's an leave one with Win 7 , Any Help Appreciated . Regards Philip.. .. Ps Any More Info Required Let Me Know Ok

    Tried with @bios , No luck with that either , when i put win 7 dvd in drive , i Don't get the Options that show on the QFlash page to Save @Bios in Programs . I wonder why my Board has QFlash/@Bios Options when they Can't be used , anyway , i'll move on as Pc's have no Problems , it was just for a Learning Curve that's all . Thanks Caintry . Philip..

    BIOS Flash

    Thanks Caintry , but no luck , saved the file to Fat 32 flash Drive , into QFlash , only option i get is Floppy A or B , No flash Drive Option . Went to Gigabyte Site , found this Bios to suit , , chose Top One 2009-6-18 , to me it's 18-6-2009 in Oz lol , on Board at the moment is the 3rd one down the list 2008-2-27 , But once again when booted to QFlash No Option to Choose Flash Drive , Only Floppy , which i Ain't got , though i spose i could add one . No problems on the pc's running old Bios , but i thought i'd Increase my Knowledge by ( having a go ) , at 67 times not on my side the way i see it . Not Long over 2 X 3 Month Zoladex 10.8 Implants ( started July 2014 for my Prostate Cancer , then 37 Radium Treatments , along with Hot Flushes from Hell , 6000/7000 from last July to April this year , and Ruined my sleep , an i'm stuck in that mode Still . Why i say Time is not on my side , so i'll try most things now lol , Wait till i hear back okie dokie . Regards Philip ..
