My laptop computer is what I use now that my desktop computer crashed. The other day it flashed a warning to me that the machine could not find my battery. What?

There was a flashing red around my power display, and I know that the battery to my laptop had not been removed. So, I later puzzled out that the battery must have overheated. I now have a fan gently blowing at the laptop, which I have elevated in the back with two small and solid pieces of packing foam.

Aye yi yi yi! I am a reluctent luddite.
I've used computers since 19-7-and 8
But can't seem ever to be quite up to date.

Microsoft, PC, MicroSoft, PC Apple and Macintosh. Ahem.
I prefer Open Source files, programs & Linux operating systems.

(to the tune of Ciello Lindo!)

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

There is a great website for looking at fixes and downloads for computer ills and programs for just about anything. I've been using them for almost 2 decades. They have stuff for free, shareware, and full purchase; your choice. I personally only do free downloads.

I've never had an issue with them. I heard about this site from a great computer-related radio program in Albuquerque New Mexico. The name of the website is MajorGeeks.

There are many sites out there for downloads, but be careful, please.

Oh, Ann, that is just awful!!! My computer keeps saying I don't have the adobe flash player installed on my computer. I do, but it can't be used except on Google Chrome. Google Chrome recognizes it but Explorer doesn't. emoticon

Technology! What a pain sometimes! Hope things get worked out for you.

Have a great night!

January 3rd of this year my computer crashed. It was quite new, as I purchased it at the end of December 2014. I returned it, to the computer store.

They told me I had a Trojan Virus on the computer and that they could not fix it, that it had to be sent out for repair. I waited 4 long grueling weeks, when finally the store called to say my computer is fixed.

One good thing........ gave me time figure out my cell phone, which I have had for over two years stashed in a junk drawer. emoticon

On to my next woe..............for this month emoticon Need flash player to operate the wizard in my computer keeps saying " No Flash Player on computer." Guess I better take the computer back to the computer store emoticon again.

Think I should do just get some sewing done but this problem is driving me nuts!
