I really think it has to do with some update within the last week as I checked the components and they are fine. Does anyone have this same problem or know what may be the cause. I am runni...

Re: [SOLVED] SSDs suddenly failing with LM 17.3

I have discovered the problem. The power supply is giving out and has fried the drives.
I am going to just throw the entire thing out as I would not want to use any possible damaged parts
in the future.
So now we know.

Re: Can email sent to Win10 users by nonusers be read by MS?

The value of PGP or any encryption is worthless the instant you start to unencrypt it. Microsoft has already stated that they keep ALL your keystrokes recorded. Any document you open, read or create is recorded as well. If you do someoGoogling you will quickly find that PGP, AES and everything else ...

Re: .mov files and VLC codecs

All Apple codecs work with VLC.
Apple has not ported their Quicktime media PLAYER to linux, that is all.
If you cannot play a file with VLC then you need to examine your settings, etc.

LM 17.1 WIFI disconnects after 1 hour unable to reconnect

Hi My laptop (Dell Inspiron N1701) routinely disconnects after about 60 minutes. It hangs if I try to reconnect and I have to reboot to reconnect. I cannot find any settings regarding any sort of timing function for the connection. Anyone have any ideas? Oh, it stops even though I am using the laptop.

Re: Firefox will not open new tabs & missing search engines

When you uninstalled Firefox did you delete your profile as well? If you did not when you reinstalled it FF will use your original profile and therefore pick up all of your old settings.
