    Thank you Brink. She remembered the new password and it let me in but; what if she didn't remember? I'm definitely creating a couple password reset disks for her. As well as emailing her all the passwords I know of hers (invisible ink of course)

    Smart TV network problem

    I have a smart tv that worked fine until my dependable wireless Linkysys died. In a pinch I bought a Belkin and since then I have not been able to get Netflix or anything else from the internet. I made some progress today but getting error codes shouldn't really be considered progress. Will any...

    Solved IE 11 text not dark enough

    Windows 8.1 IE 11 Dark black text shows up fine in ads etc. But not in text boxes or news stories that Iwant to read. In those areas it's hard to read because it's a light silverish gray color. Any ideas on how I can darken the text in news stories and text boxes?

    2nd monitor goes black and says "Input Not Supported"

    I'm only using 2 monitors. Maybe if both monitors were DVI-D or VGA it would duplicate. Guess I'll get a DVI-D to VGA adapter to find out. Thanks for your response.

    2nd monitor goes black and says "Input Not Supported"

    both are 60Mhzbut one is 1920x1080 while the other is 1440x900 either one will work in duplicate mode on a laptop VGA. Maybe its just DVI / VGA don't play well together when screen size don't match guess I could always hook my big screen up to the laptop VGA with mouse & keyboard for helping others

    2nd monitor goes black and says "Input Not Supported"

    Do both monitors have to be same resolution for duplicating the image on both? I was hoping to use the second one to give a clearer view when I try to help others learn some basic computer stuff like cut/paste and simple excel.

    Solved 2nd monitor doesn't turn off completely

    I've used the switch to actually turn it off, but files still manage to get shoved onto it. I spent over 2 hours pinning and unpinning File Explorer from the taskbar and opening File Explorer from Start screen. Finally I turned that 2nd monitor on and the 4 files I opened were on it. I'm...

    Physical Office Security

    Thanks. The building doesn't have security. The owner won't break for it. Maybe it could be as simple as using Motion Detect app for Windows in the Windows Store and a cheap webcam with sound But that doesn't place a popup on the computers back to google lane
