If your laptop is just feeling a bit slow Tom and the screen, keyboard etc. are OK, buy a SSD and replace the current hard disk. Will feel like you've stuck a turbocharger in it and only costs £40ish.


I think it's really too old now. Stuff keeps failing, drivers go missing etc.

I was running XP (I loved XP) but they stopped supporting it so I installed Vista. Now vista has gone to the wall and my lappy doesn't have the cajhones to run Windows 10.

How soon do you need one Tom? I'm upgrading mine fairly soon so may have a second hand one available.

It's pretty big and chunky but has a 17" screen and is pretty high spec for its age with an i7 processor. 8GB RAM and a 1TB SSD hard drive.

It may be 6 months before I finally take the plunge and change so it really comes down to how quickly you need one.



Are we there yet?

Actually there has been a development with the laptop. The screen sometimes goes a bit funny when it's opened at certain angles so you have to move it about a bit to get it back to normal. Not an immediate problem but it certainly suggests that at some point in the not to distant future it could 'go' completely.

The good news is that this may expedite my requirement to upgrade.

The bad news is it may be f**ked....

If you have a separate screen then not a problem but otherwise it wouldn't be ideal.

How do I post a google image to the forum using windows 10. When I right click there is no 'Copy image location' tab in the drop down list.

TIA.

Your all useless.

What are you?

Surely most of you are using Windows 10 by now, and surely you have nothing better to do than tell me how to post a google  pic using it.

What are you waiting for?

Hard to believe we have Members who don't know how to post photos properly.

Oh hi Mr L.

It's a new (To me) computer and the default browser is Microsoft Edge. I've just been googling the problem and it's beginning to look like that's where the fault lies.

I will try Firefox and report back.

Rejected.

I've refined how I upload photos now, and have got it down to less than 40 clicks.
