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 just replaced my chromebook, which my dog found quite tasty, judging from the side and back of it.  I have purchased an Acer Chromebook 15, but now I am stuck.  Does anyone have information about the brand/type of printer I should look for?  I've searched all over the web, but it just seems no one can give me "cloud-based" printing suggestions.  Anyone?

Hi there.

I'm doing this thread to once & for all find the ultimate answers to my PC issues. Before i bought my Lenovo Yoga 8 laptop i was thinking of buying a Google Chromebook. Specs might not be as high-end as a Windows PC but it loads a lot faster (having no such apps or enough background process to load in the background), apps load a lot faster, updates come automatically (and no need to download/intall like a PC), straighforward OS and no complicated hundreds of settings to tinker with unlike a PC. And besides a Chromebook is virus and malware-free forever.

I also happen to come from a Macbook Air and i found my PC is that slow. Downloading & installing apps takes a lot longer, opening or closing an app or browser or tasks also takes longer. But in the course i have made some research to improve the speed & performance of my Windows 8.1 laptop mainly:

1. Turned off bluetooth
2. Set Windows Update to automatic
3. Updated Windows Defender
4. Defrafgging my hard drive monthly

5. Choose Selective Startup (under msconfig) and made sure no apps are enabled under Startup, selected apps are running under Services, choose a higher number under Processors and maximum memory set to at least half of what my Lenovo is capable of (under Boot)
6. Set performance to High Performance.

So, What else have i missed?

A few weeks ago, my Chromebook began spontaneously powering down. I originally thought this was due to low battery, but after a few days I couldn't log on at all, even when battery was fully charged, or machine was plugged into the AC. Would get the password prompt and be able to enter the password okay, but then the machine would lock. Cursor still worked, but nothing responded, not even the onscreen "Shut Off" button. Only way to turn off the machine was to close lid or use the keyboard power button. Is there any way to fix this, or is this machine now dead? Thank you!

I have recently just purchased a chromebook for my wife so she can work though school more efficiently. However neither of us have ever used anything other than Windows. She has a class that requires her to watch live video stream of her class that is a jnlp file but we have no idea on what Google app to download that supports that file. Any help will be greatly appreciated..

Does the class/instructor not provide information on how to access the video stream? I would expect they would have provided the info, as you typically have to create an account/login to access course related materials.

Hello all, I'm looking to buy a Chromebook 14 and I live in the UK. I'm able to buy one from a Dutch website for ?375, but that's a fair bit more than the retail price of $299 - not to mention that I'm a little concerned about it being trustworthy. Additionally, this would have an American keyboard, which would be an issue - I need my British layout! There don't seem to be any vectors for me to get my hands on a UK Chromebook 14. Can someone please tell me I'm wrong, and point out where I can get one? Thank you very much!

I bought a chromebook for my 86 year old mother thinking it would be easy for her.  Last month a pop-up appeared that said she had a virus and needed to call a number.  She did and gave out her credit card number.  Company is non-existant- she called the next day.  Contacted credit card company.  Fast forward I did a powerwash of computer at xmas.  Pop-up just re-appeared today (same one) and I tried to have her do a hard restart but the computer would not respond.  Trying to do this long-distance.  I live an hour away from her.  She called comcast (her cable provider ) they could not help her.  I did read about trying to take the battery out but I she can't tell where the battery is.  Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello, We are experiencing massive amounts of failures within the keyboards of refurbished chromebooks.Out of roughly 300 units we have had failures of about 50 within 6 months.  typically it is the (8) (i) (k) (.) keys that fail.currently we are having to purchase replacement keyboards at 80$ apiece from the HP parts store. Are we the only ones experiencing these kinds of issues? I would think that if 20% of units are failing so quickly that HP might have a bad refurbisher or need to recall these units?

A photo colleague dumped his Chromebook on my lap (gratis) with some [email protected]#$ comments ... I will not comment as to why, and I thought this could replace my clunky W540 for pre made portfolio/slide or video presentations. OK, here is the deal.  The Cloud storage is nice, but I'm off on the road with no WiFi, at a client's house. Last time I tested the Chrome Cloud, the presentation 'stuttered' and the flow was disconcerting, and was a discredit to my abilities. I have mutliple prsentations, and 16gb is not enough, particularly when visiting distinct client with different or multiple  portfolio requirements. Is there any way to change the 16gb standard card to a 64gb (There are now 200gb micro SD cards!): Sandisk 200GB SD - The future. I hate to fiddle with the built in SD port, not counting the potential loss of these tiny cards.  I would like it to be an  internal or at least sealed and protected from accidental 'pop-outs'. As the eMMC is actually built on the SD card protocol, can I open and replace the meager 16gb with a more modern larger storage for of WiFi use. Any hack or hints before I pass this unit off, would be appreciated.  Incredible 'oyster' closure system.  Even the Chrome Pixel has a lid finger catch groove.

I do have and use the "SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive":  Did not try it in Chromebook yet, as the Google Store does not seem to have the Chrome extension.  It does play well on my Adroids (Cell and Tablet). Sandisk Wireless Media drive. That may be a way to go if I can get it to work as just a raw drive using some workaround software controls.  I guess another workaround and something else to carry & lose.

I have an HP Chromebook 14 X010WM that simply will not boot up. When plugged in, I can hit the power button and it will flash and then straight to black. But then I can hit the power button again and it does the same thing, but like it's powering off.I have tried the hard reboot - unplugging everything, including the power cord and holding the power button for 7 seconds and then plug back in the power and turn on. Didn't work.Tried a new cord. Nope. Still acts the same.I'm thinking about replacing the battery (it's not one with a simple removeable one sadly), but wanted to see what you guys think first before I dish out money on a replacement battery to find out it's completely dead. I am a second owner of it, as my friend gave this to me to see if I can get it to work again. She did mention it was dropped but nothing too drastic or even a heavy drop (supposedly a short drop of about a foot onto carpet). She never could get it work since the drop. It is out of warranty (by a little over a year).
