I work in a GP Clinic and I use the FAX machine constantly. We've installed a new (secondhand) FAX Machine but I've found that it won't let me send a FAX by simple inputting the FAX number. I have to add the number to the address book first. This is annoying and impractical for the number of FAXes I send and the variety of places I send them off to. I've read the manual and it says there's a way to allow it but I've done my best to follow the instructions provided and no dice.

The FAX machine is a Kyocera ECOSYS M6530cdn

I've been using this guide: https://downloads.kyoceradocumentso...ation/Documentation/M6530cdn_Fax Op Guide.pdf to try and fix the issue, I might just be interpreting the instructions wrong so if anyone knows how I can fix this I would really appreciate the help!
 
Hopefully I am in the right group. My problem is: All of a sudden after using computer and turning it off , it will connect me back to the internet. It was working just fine and now It will not connect at all. I am not able to use the "free Sysinfo utility" as I am having to send this on my daughters computer. Computer states " Can't connect to the internet". It does show "Network & Internet Settings" are on. Thank You
 
My Dell laptop has trouble connecting well to my home internet. With wifi, it is almost always super slow, like 8 or 9 mbps. Sometimes resetting the modem and restarting the laptop at the same time will fix this temporarily. With ethernet, occasionally it connects and is fine, but more often I get the message, "unidentified network," and it won't connect at all.

Other devices in the house (phone and roku) have no problems with connection or speed. My laptop sometimes has similar issues with other outside wifi connections and sometimes not, but never quite as bad as at home.

I solved this problem once by getting a new modem. But recently they came and installed fiber internet, and the problem started again with the modem that came with it. I'd replace it, but I don't know how to guess which modems will cause this problem and which won't. I think I just got lucky the last time.

Any idea what could be causing this and how to fix it?

Hello everyone,

I just had a new gaming pc, everything is perfect the system runs smoothly for 6 days, on my seventh day the system won't even boot up, so I resent the pc back from where I got it and there it boots perfectly, apparently I have this issue where the system would boot for a few minutes then completely shuts down, I have no idea what would be causing it but to doubt my inconsistent electricity and power judging by where I live (Egypt), could that be the reason why my pc does that?

At first I have to say I can't write and speak English very well so sorry in advance...
I have 2 little questions about my Vram that I can't find answers to them correctly even I have searched many in net...
I have 4gb total available video memory* and 512mb of dedicated video memory** (in pnp generic monitor tab)
The first question is which of the * or ** is Vram?which one is finally important to gaming?
The second question is why do my games show 2gb Vram in their video settings?2gb is not the same with any of the above two numbers(*and**)!
If I can have 4gb Vram in games (if Vram is *) how can I fix it in games that will show * not 2gb.
Special tnx to you ??

Hi everyone, Free Range Scotto from Australia saying G'day!

I have a problem with a new system I just built for a client and I'm open to suggestions while I work through things. So, here's the rub...

Specs:

Ryzen 5 2600 CPU
Gigabyte A320M-H MB
16GB (2 x 8GB) G.Skill Sniper DDR4
RX570 8GB video card
WD Green 240GB M.2 boot drive
WD Blue 2TB HDD
Thermaltake Smart RGB 600watt PSU

Now there's been 3 blue screens today (loads yesterday) all with the usually innocuous messages such as page fault in no paged area, IRQ is less or not equal, trying to write to protected memory or something. It seemed to settle down after a fresh install of Windows although we had the protected memory one almost straight away.

Ran Memtest for hours until completion and no errors, the hard drives seem to check out, temps are all good, BIOS updated to the latest. Now it's just restarting at random but no blue screens. For instance I was running Ryzen Master to look at the temps and load etc then boom! Restart but no blue screen. It does this with anything that is open. It's probably doing it with nothing running but it's pretty quick so I could be missing it.

I'm yet to check the Event Viewer but in the meantime would it be a fair assumption to suspect the motherboard is playing funny buggers? I am thinking about trying an install on a standard SSD and see if that makes any difference, why? Because there's never been any issue outside of Windows.

Anyone here a LinkedIn expert? I'm trying to edit the "Open to Job Opportunities" section of my profile. It says that you can have up to 5 different job titles. I added 2 but only 1 is showing up after I saved it.

Also, is it possible to create my own job title or can I only choose from what's on the LinkedIn list?

I have had the printer for a couple of years, and it was working fine, but for the last few months it has been touch and go if it will connect to my laptop (Mac).

Now it has stopped connecting all together.

I have downloaded the driver for Canon Pixma MG 3051 from Canon website, but it just says it's downloaded and then doesn't give me an option to run. Printer is visible on my list but says 'not responding', so definitely not connected.

I have just updated the operating system on my mac which was overdue - but printer had stopped working before this. I don't know how to find old installation files to erase them all.

I hope you can help, I have assignments I need to print urgently, thank you

How do I go about installing this "plug-in" or whatever it is in Google Earth Pro ?

https://www.epa.gov/waterdata/waterskmz-tutorial

I have read and reread and if the instructions are there, I cannot find them.
If I have been told correctly, this plug-in will add the river and stream names that are, for whatever reason that defies common wisdom, missing from Google Earth Pro.

Thanks for reading and all help is appreciated.

Hi guys,

I'm wanting to buy a new PC. (this will be used for gaming and will run some high demanding games such as escape from tarkov.)

I know a bit about PCs etc but not really up to date with the newest components etc.

My budget is about £1000 gbp. Will need all parts. (CPU, GPU, etc.)

What are the best CPUs, GPUs etc around nowadays for a full PC build of around £1000.

Appreciate any help you guys can give me. Thanks.
 
Hi, I am helping a friend who would like to reorganize her Thunderbird email folders to make more sense. She had various folders on the server and saved locally, and wants to consolidate them. We reviewed her emails and agreed on a folder list that makes sense, and I've created those on the server. However, I'm having trouble moving all of the locally save emails to the new folders.

Part of the problem is that she relies in DSL, so the process is unbearable slow and easily interrupted. I am wondering how I can best accomplish this. Can I take her account offline, save everything, then reorganize it, and upload the new folder structure? Would it be better to convince her to come to my location, sign in on my laptop, and do the moves in real time via decent broadband?

She has a desktop box with Windows 10. I have FIOS internet, a Macbook, and a Windows 10 PC. She is an 85 year old music arranger and former actor on a Sreen Actors Guild retirement, so hardware changes would be difficult.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi,

Please help. I have never had this problem before, and I hope I can explain it right.

Recently, when I type or edit content in excel (or not typing anything), excel would lose focus on the current cell and I have to click the mouse for it to show the active cell. This happens every few seconds and impossible to type. I don't know if it's a virus thing or what. I have tried copying the content to a brand new worksheet and saving it as xls instead of xlsx. but still the same issue.

I hope to figure it out before resorting to uninstalling and reinstalling office 2010 again.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
 
Hi there, I have a Windows Surface 2 laptop running Windows 10. I bought it two months ago and recently I?ve noticed that sometimes the fan is running after some time. I don?t know why this would be? I would only assume that the fan would run if I was gameing or something where I was working the computer hard. The vast majority of the time I?m either listening to music, using a word document, or on the Internet. That shouldn?t be too taxing should it? So I downloaded this program called Core Temp, and I?ve added a screenshot for you to show you what my CPU numbers are. I don?t know how to read it, and what the numbers should look like. Please can someone get back to me and tell me if I?m running in the green, or whether I have something to be worried about. Kind regards Ginlane



 
I have had an issue going on for the past year that i cant seem to rid of. Someone has been basically stalking me through wifi somehow. She has gained control over my phone, tv, and is able to watch me (both video and audio). I dont know how to prove this to take it to authorities much less get this to stop. I can hear her in my home, she can see and hear everything i do. She is recording me and posting me somewhere online. I need help with this issue, some advice on what to do about this is greatly needed. What do i need to do to get this woman to stop??? Please help...
 
I have been going to what appeared to be a safe site for about three weeks to play a game I like. No pop-ups or anything like that, but notices about "Please turn off your ad blocker" thank you for doing this and supporting us,

Today, when I click on "Play Again" to play the game, the site locks up and the computer can't go to any other sites unless I clear my cache and temp files. I thought I was having Internet problems. But it seems that there is some third party ad being blocked by my ad blocker, and if you don't allow the banner ads, a loop is created in the browser's cache, that remains until it is cleared. (You can't browse.)

Of course, I will deleting that sites bookmark!

Hello,

Recently I've noticed my storage on my m.2 is getting low so i figured getting a new m.2 ssd with more storage.
I know my laptop uses a 2280 sata m.2 so i figured a 860 evo would do the trick.

now for the problem
After installing the 860 evo it gets stuck on the motherboard splash screen. I'm not able to disable the splash screen to see what it's saying.
first thing that came in my mind is the m.2 card is faulty. So i got my m.2 adapter plugged it into another pc and it worked fine externally after formatting the drive. I've also replaced the cmos battery just in case. but no luck either. I have to mention that my old m.2 will work so it's not a faulty connector either.

I've been searching on the internet for a few days but can't really find anyone els with this sort of problem.
 
Every time I turn on my pc recently (since moving to my new house) after a few minutes I start to hear the fan very loudly. It doesn't stop until I turn off the pc, and even then runs for about five minutes after I power it down. And naturally I don't leave it on for very long because I'm afraid something is going to burn out or break. My specs are below. Does anyone have a suggestion? I'd rather not take the rig into Best Buy or Fry's because they often know very little and charge very much.
Thank you in advance.

Hi,

I have an older laptop HP Pavilion dv6-2160em. I currently have 2 sticks of 2GB ram DDR3 1067Mhz. I wanted to do upgrade to 8GB which my laptop supports. Went on Crucial website, did the system scan and they suggested Crucial 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB) DDR3L-1600 SODIMM but since it was out of stock I found Kinston SODIMM DDR3L 1600 4GB and bought a pair of these.

But my windows won't start, after installation I got blue screen 'Your PC run into problemm and needs to restart', after that black screen 'Preparing Automatic Repair' and it just keeps going like that in loop.

When I click ESC and enter into Startup, in BIOS it shows 8GB memory and after running a memory test it shows 'memory test pass' so that means that there is nothing wrong with the memory.

I tried putting just 1 stick, replacing their position but always the same.

Could someone please tell me can I use this memory at all or is there any additional ... Read more

I bought several new games through BigFish and WildTangent sites. They will not download--forget about installing! I got a new comp 1 month ago. I started to transfer owned games. BigFish downloaded and installed the new games and about 1/2 dozen others, then stopped. WildTangent installed 1 owned game, then quit. I own MANY games and have dealt with both of these game managers successfully in the past. Pray tell, what is the problem, and how do I bloody fix it?
 
We live in rural area and only internet available is with our phone Co (CenturyLink). SO we have phone internet. I'm not sure if it's actually broadband or DSL as they seem to use both terms. Anyway last week they finally replaced the box on pole and cleaned lines up plus the box on our house. They then ran cat5e from this box into our house. The tech told me to use blue/white blue for phone and green/green white for internet. We also got a new modem from them and I have 2 routers (have had for awhile but never used) and I bought a hub switch. I have run cat5e and pulled the old phone lines. Right now I have setup 5-RJ45 surface mount Jacks for 2 PCs, 1 TV, 1 Satellite box (dish) and DVR. Plus ran 2 lines to 2 phones. They are not connected to anything yet as I'm not sure yet what to do. I want RJ11 phone wall mounts here. My question/confusion is (I have 1 line (cat5e) coming in my house. I can't just connect to my new modem as it is a RJ11 jack. However found article to use the blue and white/blue in the center of a RJ11 jack.) But shouldn't I also add the green/white green for my internet? And if so, is there an exact order these should be? So...if I can and I do this, I think I know how to hook everything up - -except my 2 phone lines. And how do I wire up the cat5e to my rj11 wall face plate - is it just the Blue and white/blue and which color(s) on phone face plate do I use? I have spent 6 days on phone with my phone company, went to PC/networ... Read more
