Problems with pc start and NVDA

Cristina Ebetiuc <ebetiucristina@...>
 

Hi
I have a big problem.
I think, I have started my pc into safe-mode. Ihave justt restarted the pc and now it does not say anything. There are only the log-in options on the braille display. When I try to enter the pin it says that there is an error and I can‘t read more because when I try to go a line down with the braille display it just does nothing. Well and the other problem that the screen courtain is turned on. ...... Ah and also after I have reseted the Mikrosoft pasword it still says that it is not right. Does anybody have a solving?
Thanks.
Oh and I also did a registry patch inorder for NVDA to function in the safe.mode but now.... well.... I can‘t hear nothing. Well I did not intend to boot into safe.mode. I just think that is the problem......

Re: How to Backup a Win10 Laptop

If that external of yours is clean with nothing on it, then maybe then you could back up your machine to it, but just because you have a 1TB within the laptop doesn't at all mean that you have 1TB worth of data upon it. So it truly comes down to what is it that you have upon your external, and what's the amount of data you have upon your local 1TB SSD?

As far as making a backup every month though, you would most likely want another drive with more capacity.

Hi All,


I have a Lenovo laptop running win 10 and jfw. It has a 1 T SSD. I have a 1 T Western Digital My Passport external hard drive. I would like to backup the entirety of my computer to the external. How do I do that. This is only a personal computer not a business. I would like to update the backup every month or so in case I have some kind of disaster that wipes out my computer


Please help! I don't want to be caught unaware .


Thanks so much for your guidance in this matter.

Re: regarding Braille Extender

That is for reading .brf files on your computer.

 You'd put the file in a word processor, then put braille extender in .brf mode, so you could read it.

Hi, Android is a wonderful choice. Samsung phones are very good, the a-10 e is a good cheap model that does a lot, also, Nokia is a great choice such as the Nokia 7. Also, 1 plus phones have a lot for the price. You can get any of these phones for under $300. I recommend those, they all have TalkBack already installed, and Samsung phones even have a screen reader of their own called voice assistant. You get to screen reader choices with Samsung. have a great one, and email me anytime if you have more questions. I have used Android phones for years, and I do almost everything you can do on a computer. Take care!

Hello, I am trying to find out which machines are accessible? I have never seen one. But, my friend needs a cleaning machine for hers. So can someone tell me which ones are the most accessible? She cant see the light, that tells you it is cleaning or if the light went off! Thanks Heather

Re: removing a program

Sam Taylor <sjt1982@...>
 

There are a couple of ways. You can press the Windows key, type the program name or part of the program name till it appears, press your applications key or shift f10, and choose the uninstall option. Or, choose add/remove programs from system settings, or by typing appwiz.cpl into the run dialog, then pressing enter on the program you wish to remove.

Solitaire for Win7

Jim Wohlgamuth
 

Hi there FOLKS!
Was wondering if someone could tell me where I could find the Solitaire for Win 7? After the last windows update it is no longer there..? It seems as though I had a similar issue after the last major windows update.  Now I would just like to get the solitaire game back as well as my chess game.  Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks Much!

The Go is a lot less powerful - which as with any computer, if you spend more, you can get a faster processor, more RAM etc.  But the other key difference with the Surface Go is that it runs "Windows 10 S".  That is a specific "Lite" version of Windows 10 where you can only run software you download from the Windows store.  So the regular version of most software like NVDA won't run on it.  You can convert Windows 10 S to regular Windows 10 Home, which is a one way step so you can't go back later.  I haven't used the Go but my concern would be ust how well regular Windows 10 Home would run on such a machine - the point of putting Windows 10 S on it in the first place is that it is "lighter" and will likely work better (in terms of running smoother etc) than the full featured Windows.

If anyone has a Go and has made that conversion it would be great to hear how your experience is with it.

Quentin.

Re: HDD Needs Drive Letter

Sam Taylor <sjt1982@...>
 

Hi Georges,

Go to disk management by running diskmgmt.msc

Find the partition you wish to manage, right click and choose the change drive letter command. Then assign a drive letter.

Cheers

Sam

I have an HP laptop that can accomodate M2SATA SSD which is already installed and working properly, there is also a free compartment for another HDD or SSD standard size, I installed it and it is 1TB. In device manager it is working properly but it did not get a drive letter as it appears. How can I fix it? The installed HDD is partitioned and formatted with another laptop using usb so it should work.

Does anyone know where I can get a Win 7 version of Solitaire and a chess game that will work with JAWs? Thanks Much! Have A Good 1!
