    Nik-Ken-Bah's battery thread.

    @Kobac G'day and welcome. Thank you for the suggestion only I do not run Vindows 10 only run on Vindows 7 as it is just to so that I can run certain features for devices that do not have a Linux interface only vindows interface.

    Nik-Ken-Bah's battery thread.

    That could be the problem! As I went to HP and downloaded a PDF on the dv6 model though not exactly mine but close enough as I just wanted to make sure my knowledge was correct about the power light and I was correct in one respect in regards to the blinking amber light but they state it is...

    Nik-Ken-Bah's battery thread.

    As was the battery I replaced. Not withstanding that. The reason that I am dubious that it the battery is or may be faulty is that in Feb this year after letting it sit 4-5 I tried firing it up but had to wait for quite awhile before it did so I let it sit there and all the indications were that...

    Nik-Ken-Bah's battery thread.

    I'll give it abash Capt but not quite sure how it will go though. Should you mean did I fire it up without the mains plug in, then yes I did. Seemed normal. Another thing they do not completely discharge in about 4 to 5 months.It is rated at 8800mAh @ 10.8 Vdc. It was put aside while I was...

    Nik-Ken-Bah's battery thread.

    Since we are jabbering on about Vindows I have a question of any of you that is familiar with their command prompt as I need to diag. the battery on my laptop. Just need to know the commands to see what is plurry going on with it, as its behaviour is erratic. Battery is basically a newie as I...

    A Meeting of Like Minds

    @wizardfromoz Just looking at your photo and I have a feeling somewhere in our lives we have crossed paths but I just can't place where or when. Though should we have done so it was a brief nameless encounter or just travelers to somewhere or while waiting to go to destinations unknown.

    They are still one of my favourites and Judith Durham still retained a good voice as she aged.

    What is your favorite font or font family?

    Those type of fonts I only use for sending letters, snail mail that is, to close kin or very good friends to give them a more personlised letter as I do have a very neat copperplate or running writing hand. As on the computer I can adjust the size of the font, thus saving weight and paper when...

    Sick of Microsoft!!!

    G'day Sherri and welcome aboard. I think quite a few of us have had that problem about wondering will you be able to adapt to some thing completely different to Vindows which is the scary part but once you take the plunge it takes on an entirely different light. Then you beginning thinking to...

    Brave Browser

    Yep! I can understand you and @stan , after listening to various stories from reddit and also from other more mundane but factual sources. It also wouldn't be the go to place for me to acquire what I need to live my life.

    Brave Browser

    With that I heartily concur! I use Brave and Firefox. Firefox mainly for the social sites I do frequent but serious searches I do through Brave as well as watch YouTube so I can watch the vids I am interested in without plurry worry of ads popping up just as it is getting interesting but not...

    Another Query but this time On Voice to text.

    It is also in my Software manager as well though it goes the opposite way, in that it converts text to voice. Which is good since my cousin is going blind and relies on text to voice as this makes it easier for him to read your text messages and email. A hereditary fault which showed up in two...

    Another Query but this time On Voice to text.
