    Refurb PC won't update Windows

    It is actually a common problem, so common MS has a fix it for it, that sometimes workd and sometimes doesn't. I have had this issue before, and it is hit or miss whether or not it will just start working or not.

    Jacee, I am so sorry your friend Daphne has odor. Perhaps you could give her some soap and deodorant. Maybe if you keep your hard candy in the refrigerator it won't grow stuff on it.

    Well we got so sick of snow here in New England that we built a invisible force field. So far it is holding up well, there may be a small breach but all in all, we have been able to keep pushing everything south.............................. How do ya like us now

    You put a cheap Nvidia card in it. Then a year from now, when Intel does something about their cnstant late driver issues you can go back to the on board junk. I have experienced most of what you are describing, I too thought the new plazma, dolphin, or KDE were at fault, when I installed the proper nvidia and or AMD drivers all issues went away and it ran like a champ. Then I test installed on a two year old laptop with intel, and a five year old desktop with intel and all was fine, as the older intel chips are well supported. When drivers were good the desktop behaved, when using the built in kernel drivers, things were bad.

    You are indeed simply experiencing graphics problems. Going to 13.2 would likely be even worse. You need at least Linux kernel v4.3 to get support for a Skylake CPU, at least if you use built-in Intel graphics. You can add the stable kernel repo, and install kernel 4.4 in leap. http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard/

    It is a great OS Terry. Everything you are experiencing I am willing to bet comes down to a video driver. That is the only time I had any issues, and once I installed Nvidia and or AMD drivers, all bugginess goes away.
