Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Connectify pro has an auto start option that does this but it's a paid version, connectify lite is free but I'm not sure if has auto start.

Hi there

I'm going to apply to the Guinness Book of Records as I must be the only person on Planet Earth who can't get the GOOGLE CHROME browser to work on the latest version of Windows (W10 PRO X64 with all updates etc)

It just sticks forever in a "Wait"

Have uninstalled and re-installed several times. Amazing as I've got the browser to work on every other device I've ever tried it on.

I wanted it because of the Googlecast where I could cast the Audio output from the PC to the chromecast device. My remote TV speakers are much better than the local laptop ones -- I can stream standard Audio but I wanted to stream Internet radio which is another issue entirely. The Chrome browser does work for that (I've tested it on another PC).

(The standard tunein audio feed directly on the chromecast doesn't stream HD Audio streams or FLAC - my server will decode the audio streams which can then be picked up with the chromecast dongle -- but all bets are off if I can't get Chrome Browser to work !!).






Cheers

did it actually get wet ?, i suspect it did

i would allow it to completely dry out - maybe putting in an airing cupboard or somewhere warm

then take the battery out and the power adapter and hold the power key on for 60 seconds

if it still does not work , i suspect the pc has been damaged

to recover the data - you maybe able to remove the harddrive and then using an adapter - plug it in to a USB port on another PC and access the files
just depends on if the water also caused damage to the harddrive

Has this happened to anyone else- daughter put chrome book on charge fortunately she was still at the desk when she noticed smoke coming from one corner.
As you can see from the photo it looks like a component was burning inside melting the outer casing.
It's only two months old and when initially we called Dell they claimed it wasn't under warranty. Husband called again and they are sending a courier to collect it to fix it.
I called Dell today to raise my concerns as daughter's school advises all pupils to use the same model and I was concerned this could happen to someone else.
I was told there have been no other problems with this model - let's hope this is a one-off.
Had daughter not been there I dread to think what might have happened, just wanted to check no one else has experienced a similar problem.

Hi,

Welcome to TSF!!

I would like to know a little bit more about what you are talking about. For starters what browser are you currently using, and what browser do you want to use. If you want to stop using google chrome then you should be able to uninstall it and then you should be fine. To uninstall programs you just go to control panel -> add/remove programs.

If it is something other than that. I will try to help you the best that I can, but not being a chrome user myself, I don't know how much I can do for you. I will try to find information if you need it.

You may have the action keys disabled in the BIOS.

hi,

Okay so I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. It's pretty old as I got it in 2009, and yes the battery is shot to hell. But it has worked in this condition.

The problem is I can't get the adapter to turn on to get my computer powered on. To my knowledge, there's no shortage or exposed wires on it. I can even post a picture if you would like.

Before people also tell me to get a new laptop, I'm broke. This is my only option for now. And as stated earlier, it has worked in this condition before. The LED on the adapter won't even turn on when I keep trying to plug it into different power sources.

If anyone can help with this it would be very much appreciated. Thank you!!!

I have a mac 2013(early) running win10 (obviously). I have my TV with a auxiliary port. I want to know if it is possible to use some software to turn my laptop into an adapter between my Bluetooth headphones and the TV. I have heard that if the volume is too loud from the TV going into a auxiliary port, it could fry something. I feel like this is something that could be doable, and software exists. But I cannot find any, and I really want to use my Bluetooth headphones so no one can hear my TV when playing games and such.

A:software to turn mac into bluetooth adapter?

If you are using the tv as an external monitor as well as for watching broadcasts you would simply mute that if not Bluetooth capable and then use either the head phone jack on the laptop itself or see the Bluetooth app configure the head set there not through the tv. Does the headset happen to have a usb dongle by chance?

On a quick Bing search for looking a guide for seeing Bluetooth installed on 10 you will also find instructions on how to see Bluetooth already present and accounted for enabled on 10 rather easily. The following was quickly found from the Help From Microsoft pages in the Bing search results itself with an embedded video short.








To connect your Bluetooth headset, speaker, or headphones to your Windows 10 PC, you'll need to pair the device first.


Turn on your Bluetooth device and make it discoverable. The way you make it discoverable depends on the device. Check the device info or website to find out more.On the taskbar, select the action center icon, and make sure Bluetooth is turned on.In action center, select Connect, then pick your device.Follow any additional instructions. Otherwise, you're done.

Hi,
I am so utterly frustrated with the Geolocationing occuring in several browsers, at least I think it is called Geolocationing. For instance, if typing www.google.com it still brings me to www.google.se all the time. I have the option of going to google.com from there but still. Doing that several times a day is feeling very long and whiny...

Same with pages like hotels.com, tripadvisor... etc and various pages. Google translate always sets the target language to Swedish as default, even if I go to translate.google.com...

So is there any way in turning this off? Any plug-in? Any better browser than Safari for instance?

It might sound like an easy task to just "not bother" but it frustrates me, especially in Safari, as I have to reload and go a long way around which is more annoying in a phone than on a PC....

Hi guys, I need a wireless adapter that supports 5Ghz.
I have an older laptop that has some issues, but the card in it works fine, so I swapped it into this laptop.

It installs fine, I updated the drivers etc, but it will not 'turn on'. When I troubleshoot it, the error is that it is currently turned off. The button to turn on and off my wireless doesn't do anything to change it, so although its plugged in exactly the same as my other, it's as if my wireless button is specially designed for original adapter only.

If it helps, on my other laptop, the wireless was switched on with a on off switch on the side of the laptop, rather than one of the F keys.

The adapter in my laptop is a: Ralink RT5390R
The one I tried to install is a: Intel Centrino advanced-n 6200
The laptop I am trying to install it on is a HP Pavilion G6

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
