  1. Running win 10 on desktop and laptop. They both see media devices on each other machine. They DO NOT SEE FILES. I am able to go to file explore and type in \\xxxxx\d\xx and get the files (just read I could do this). How can I get the computers to be seen on the network in the file explore. Not sure if I have work group or home group on either machine.
  2. Having trouble with home group in win 10. In -VIEW YOUR NETWORK PROPERTIES --I see that in connectivity IPV4/IPV6 is DISCONNECTED in the laptop. In the laptop wi-fi properties TCP/IPV4 and TCP/IPV6 are both checked. How do I turn on the IPV4 AND IPV6 so that maybe home group will work?
  3. I have a laptop and desktop. In the laptop I created a home group and have the password from the laptop. I went to the desktop top and it said it sees a home group and asked if I would like to join. I put in the laptop password but after a few minutes I am told the desk top cannot see home group. How to fix? What is the difference between work group and home group plus which is easier to use.?
  4. I wanted to use old h/d as a secondary back up drive. I had broken the h/d up in to 3 drives originally. The desk top win 10 was able to see this. I went and formatted each. I was trying to make one big drive. I deleted the first primary and now the win 10 computer does not see any thing. Is there a way of getting my win 10 system to see and format?
  5. Running office 2016 (office 365). When I went to print in the past, one page would show up in the print window. I would pick my printer and just print. Now two pages show up in the print window. I did try and adjust the zoom to show one page but when I open the print box again there are two pages. I am guessing there is an easy way of of adjusting this but I DO NOT KNOW HOW. PS: I am using a laptop,running win10,64 bit.
  6. Back when MS let us upgrade to win 10 I installed on a new SS h/d. I am finally switching over to the win 10. Was having trouble trying to load both win 8 and win 10. So I unplugged the win 8 and the 2 Tera h/d that I had named win 8 data that ran on the win 8 system. I plugged in the win 10 and have done updates and started to install software. I formatted a new 2 Tera h/d and named it win 10 data. In order to transfer a lot of files I plugged in the win8 data h/d but the system would not boot up. I was told --an operating system was not found.Try disconnecting any drive that don't contain an operating system--. I then unplugged the win8 data h/d and I was able to boot right up into the win 10 system. When I ran the win 8 system I had load most programs on the win8 data h/d. The SS h/d win8 (c drive) only had 128 gigs. In order to transfer files I installed the win8 data h/d into external h/d holder (rocket stor5411A) and was abler to transfer files. I unplugged the win10 and the win10 data h/d and plugged back in the win8 and the win8 data h/d. The system would not boot any more unless I unplugged the win8 data h/d. The question is why can I not load the win 10 system when I have the win8 data h/d plugged in. Plus why can I not have the win 8 data plugged in when trying to load the win 8 system now?
  7. I use this back up h/d 2-3 times a year just to store info. I just tried to load and all I see is--$recycle.BIN. I downed utilities from WD and they do not see h/d. Any hope or is info gone and just trash it.
  8. I had pulled cat 5e Into each room when I installed base board heat. Was for possible future use. Now a few years later I need one of the cat 5e cables. Do they have a connector that does NOT use a HAND tool. I only have to put connectors on 1 cat 5e cable.
  9. I have a new laptop with a SS h/d and a 1 terr h/d.I want to make the restore point for the SS h/d © and put it on the 1 terr h/d (D). The SS h/d is only 128 gig and I try and install any programs on the D drive. Some times I have no choice but install on C drive. Would it be possible to put the restore points for the C drive on the D drive? I might be missing some thing!

    HDMI Splitter Issues

    I had a similar problems but with by security DVR.My wife wanted a monitor in hall way(to view,could not get to TV) and I wanted to view on my computer. I was able to split the HDMI out put from DVR and see what the camera were viewing on both screens. This splinter has its own power supply.Take a look and see if it would help. Also depending on how far you want to push the signal you would need special HDMI cord. I had to use a special 50 ft HDMI cord (reduce signal loss). Got it from monoprice.com. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_3_7?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=vhd-1x2mn3d+hdmi+splitter&sprefix=vhd-1X2%2Cundefined%2C209&crid=74WXNUMVEJFL
  11. I have an Acer notebook SW3-013-155J(J could be 1). The outlook account that was used to log into on the acer is no good.I must of used wrong password to many times and MS will not unlock. WE never used this old outlook acct for any thing other than logging onto acer notebook. I can still get into notebook. So I login and I made this new acct an administrator acct (JOE). The problems now is I keep on being asked to log in with another acct (which I feel is the old bad outlook acct). The message is below in picture. So big question is how do I fix the mess I created?

    desk to wont see all hard drives

    Some thing has happen to the booting of windows. The only way I am able to boot in to win 8.1 h/d and the 2 terr h/d is through the F8 key on start up (this picture below pops up and I select win boot). When I do this I can see the SSD h/d and the 2 terr h/d. If I DO NOT DO THIS,then I have to unplug the 2 terr h/d so that the SSD will load. Is the MBR bad or what?
  13. I have desk top with a maximus VI hero mother board. I HAD 1 SSD (solid state h/d) (win 8.1) and a 2 terr h/d installed in computer. I was trying to hook up another ssd with win 10. I unplugged the win 8 SSD and then plugged in the win 10 SSD. When I went to start I had a message that no operating system was found,try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an OS (picture below). I disconnected the 2 terr h/d and restated. The win 10 SSD came up and was running. After installing a few programs in the win 10 SSD, I disconnected that and reconnected the win 8.1 SSD. If I connect the win 8.1 SSD and the 2 terr h/d the computer will not boot.The same message comes up when I try to boot (picture below). I need the other 2 terr h/d,it has most of the data and programs on this computer. Not sure what happen,I have done this before. When I start the computer now, I get the two message about page file and performance now (pictures below).
  14. My desk top is win 8.1 and the laptop is win 10.I finally got the laptop to see the files on the desktop that I wanted.But the desktop can not access the laptop.I said share on the laptop and share on the desktop.I used the password from desktop and used it so I am on the same group in the laptop. In network and sharing center/media streaming options, I see the laptop. When I try to click on the network, I see the laptop but the desk top will not access.It says --box pops up-and says win cannot access \\laptop,check spelling of the name.

    Boot ini gone or bad

    Thanks for the reply.I was going to try the link that you sent but I did not like the warning about back up all data on the disk.The problem is I could not get to it to copy.Time passes and last backup was1 year ago. I was able to get to the command prompt (with nortons ghost) but did not remember my dos commands. After reading the old dos book,I was able to move around a little.I finally got down to windows/pss dir.Typed in boot.ini backup and guess what happen.The boot.ini backup came up in notepad,was I really gland,was not sure what or how I was going to change it in dos.I saved as boot.ini backup2 and then changed it to boot.ini and finally saved it to the c drive. The computer is up and running .I still believe there is some thing wrong so after a complete backup,I will restore to about a year ago.
