Q: Lenovo Chromebook and Use as a Photo Portfolio Dis...

Has any one out in ChromebookLand been able to use the acclaimed system to show picture full screen from sets of jpg files? Due to the puny memory capacity, and difficult to work with external SD card slot, I tried to connect a Sandisk Media drive. The Media drive connects very well, but the display operations of pictures is just not professional. The keystrokes are quasi not functional or not present. When giving the show, I need to waste time explaing the customer what to do, and the 'slides' are not full screen, but small. The colors ARE GREAT, but that is about it. As an aisde, any one ever wonder why the letters are in lower case???? My 5 year old asked me.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, I have a Lenovo 11e chromebook.I am trying to figure out the Auto Update Expiration for it.  Normally, I can get this from https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6220366?hl=enIf you look through there, you can see there are a few mentions of Lenovo 11e with different date based on it's generation.  How can I figure out its generation?Lenovo.com's warranty lookup says its model number is 20DU0003US and its warranty expired 2015-09-04.  I have not been able to use that infromation to look this up.  I have been looking at listings on Lenovo's site and Amazon for the various 11e's trying to compare them to what my model has: "Intel Celeron N2930 processor (1.83GHz)
4.0GB RAM
Google Chrome
11.6in 1366x768
Integrated HD Graphics
Bluetooth 4.0
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 2X2 AC
4 Cell Lithium-Ion" I have not been able to find matches for any generation.  It seems sorta close to 1st gen, but it is not the same.Any help would be appricated.  Thank you.

Hi, I just purchased my Lenovo N22-20 Chromebook from Amazon. However, I am having problems getting into Recovery Mode using the instructions published here https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/1080595?hl=en-GB&source=genius-rts. When I press and hold esc + refresh, then press the power button (for about half a second)- it immediately shutsdown my chromebook, it doesn't go into recovery mode. I tried this sequence with the chromebook off and it does nothing. I tried the sequence before and after logging in too.  I also tried esc + refresh on it's own as some posts suggested just those two keys. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a different set of keystrokes that need to be used with a Lenovo N22-20? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I haven't used my chromebook for about 3 days. It was probably completely dead. I went to turn it on and the screen was white. I hit the power button and it shut off. When I tried to turn it back on, nothing. I plugged it in and the orange charging light came on. Still nothing. Let it charge overnight until the green fully charged light came on. Nothing. I've tried holding the refresh and power buttons as well as the esc, refresh, and power buttons. I've tried unplugging it and holding the power button down and then plugging it back in. Still nothing. There is no external battery. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Umm... Hello? Is this thing on? Okay, here it goes. I wanted to share my experiences so far with my new Lenovo C330 Chromebook. Let me start off first by saying, this is my first Chromebook. Previously, I had been using 64-bit Intel Core laptops that I ended up wiping Windows off of and installing some flavor of Linux or another. I am a one-click, out-of-the-box type of user, so distros such as Ubuntu and EndlessOS did me just right. As for the Lenovo Chromebook C330, I love it. Although the touch screen display isn't as sensitive as other touch screen displays I've used (it doesn't take too kindly to a capacitative stylus, the ones with the rubber nib, unless you press hard which means I guess I will just be using my finger after all *sigh*), and the SD card sticks way too far out of the slot, I can get used to these things.

Just something that we as a schoolboard found out about these devices, is that they use a magnet to sense when the lid is closed.  This issue that this causes is that if you have the devices stacked on top of each other that the magnet from the device below will stop the top one from turning on.  Some of our techs had them stacked while they were trying to enroll a large number of devices.  This is just an FYI.

At the bottom of the screen a number of tasks are listed that can be performed, including one labeled "more". Clicking on more brings up a "print" option and two choices: Portfolio Report and Transaction Report.

I have a weird problem and I wonder if anybody seen it before. I keep my stocks portfolios in Yahoo Finance. Normally I add and remove stocks in the portfolio as I buy and sell them. Today when I added a stock, instead of creating a new line in the correct alphabetical location for the new stocks, it added a line at the end and shifted all the amounts from one line into the next following the new one. When I tried to add another stock the problem repeated and now all the amounts are two lines off. The portfolio is all wrong and useless.

Since all portfolio information is kept on Yahoo web site, I tried to recreate the problem on my laptop but it was working ok. That's was true until I tried to trace my steps today and the only thing I did differently was to hit F11 in IE8 to get a full-page display. After I hit F11 again to reset the page size the problem started. I tried it on the laptop and now the laptop is also screwed up. I cleared the cache, reset the IE8 setting to the default, rebooted the computer and the problem is still there. The only thing I have not tried yet is to reload IE8.

weird, is not it? Any ideas?

Update:

I tried a different browser. A Netscape browser. The same problem happens there. It may be a "Yahoo" software bug. Please let me know if anybody experience similar problems.

Mods, if this is in the wrong section, please move it.

I have a Computer Information Systems Bachelor of Science Degree from a University. However, my skills in programming are not up to par with what you'd expect from a graduate. They've degraded from my college days. Mostly from my own laziness, but partly from the fact that the job I got laid off from a month and a half ago (and had for close to a year and a half) mostly required me programming in an obscure language called FoxPro.

That job was my first job out of college, and now I'm looking for work. When I got laid off, I planned on doing projects at home that perhaps I could show off to a prospective employer. However, I never got around to it. I got a hold to a bunch of tech books, but never really know where to start. What language, what project. Any of that.

Also, I've ended up prioritizing job hunting ahead of actually working on my skills. Unemployment requires that I apply to 2 jobs a week, which would be easy if I wanted to relocate. As of now, it's a hustle. I've been applying for work, but I've only gotten one interview. I thought it went well, but I haven't heard back from them in 3 weeks.

I'm realizing that I have amateur programming skills and I have no work to show off to a prospective employer. However, I feel a portfolio would help me out a lot, if I could make one. I can work on developing my skills, but past that point, I don't know anything. I do... Read more

A:How can I start building a programming portfolio?

I'm a university student who's just finished my first year, so I'm constantly given all the same advice as you are and don't really know how much is accurate and how much is nice-sounding theory.

That said, it sounds to me as if the task is twofold.
You have to prove to employers that you have the skills they want, and you have to make sure you have the skills they want.

The first thing to check is what languages they actually do want, which isn't always C# or Java.

Insofar as FoxPro is like the languages they want you to work in, it shouldn't be hard to transfer those underlying skills to another language even if the actual letters used to make a statement are different. However, if the language you're after has an inherently different way of doing things, you'll need to learn that way of doing things.
Either way you'll need to practice the new language: find code samples and trace through them line by line to work out what's happening, find online programming puzzles (things like this and this) and practice them in different languages, look for fora like this one (though to be honest the programming forum here isn't all that busy) and find the bugs in people's buggy code, and ultimately write programs in them. I put some of my projects up on my website. They're neither unique nor the best in their field, but they serve for practice. Generally speaking each is focussed on an area I knew I was weak on at...

Can anyone recommend a simple, cheap program for keeping track of my stock portfolio?
 
All I need is a place to record purchases and sales and have it keep track of the basis for tax purposes. For that, I suppose it also needs me to record stock splits.
 
I've checked around, but they are all much more sophisticated.
 
Thanks

A:Simple portfolio tracking software

Without knowing the sort of business you are in it is difficult to be very precise.
 
If you are in the sort of business with low volumes and high values - say up to a dozen or so sales per day - then a simple Excel or Libre Office spread sheet should be adequate and not overly laborious to keep up to date. If however you are selling hundreds or thousands of items per day then I think you would need an automated system which is going to be more expensive.
 
If you are using some sort of dedicated accounts package - Sage for example - can this not be included in that ?

Hi,
I'd like to have a function or macro that takes weights of multiple securities in the portfolio (sheet "Portfolio1") and automatically compute the performace on sheet "Perf" (yellow column) without having to manually change the function every time the weights change.

There are going to be many securities on the first sheet (think 100 or so) with different weights for different time periods. Both the number of securities and the number of dates with changes in weights is going to increase over time. Cells without weights will be left blank.

Thank you for any suggestions.
