using an amazon gift card

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

I put 3 items in my online amazon shopping cart but when I went to pay for them I couldn't tell if my gift card balance would be used to make the purchase or not. I have enough on the gift cards to cover the whole purchase, and it does show that I have a gift card balance although it only shows 30 something dollars and the total of my gift cards is $75, how can I make sure that my gift card balance is used? Btw what I'm buying won't take up the entire gift card balance.

No it will not affect jaws or office. Before I got the paid version I use to run it at least once a month.

Okay, doing this won’t effect Jaws or MS Office right? Also, if it doesn’t do cleanings/updates automatically then how will I know when they need done?

C Cleaner has a free version as well, it will just not update automatically or run cleans automatically. You will have to run them manually. You may need to enable the tabs by clicking the button more details. In the performance tab you will see CPU button and memory button. You can see the values by pressing enter, if the percentages are high then go back to the processes tab and see which process is using up CPU resources.

A few things you can look at are:

Make sure that the computer doesn’t have anything blocking the vents such as table cloths etc…

You can also check for driver and bio updates with the Lenovo vintage app that should be already installed on your computer.

There is also some performance settings you can adjust in this app that might help.

You can download C  Cleaner to do a clean up of the machine and also to turn off programs that start up automatically.

You can use task manager under the performance tab to see which program is using up the CPU resources the most.

Hopefully this helps.

Hi all,

I've had this laptop since March, and I notice that the fan seems to run a lot,

which I assume means that the laptop gets overheated, any idea why this might be

happening? I'm running Windows 10 2004, the latest Jaws 2021, and office 365. My

laptop is a Lenovo think book 13s 20r9005vus

 

Look forward to any thoughts or help anyone can provide!!!

Hi Madison,

 

Why do you need to run c cleaner and such programs.

I have had computers since the last milenniium and have not run such a program.

You have the ms suite of applications on your win 10 machine.

Why would you need more.

I have not used any third party maintenance applications on my  windows machines in many many years.

Sometimes adding extra apps to the recipe just  leads to confusion and difficulties.

If there were a specific reason to use c cleaner,  then I would consider it.

Hi Janit,
Hit the Windows key
Arrow down and you'll hear all aps
Arrow down until you get to Jaws, if your computer is like mine then it'll
probably be a folder that's collapsed
If this is the case then enter on the folder and the first thing that should
come up is Jaws 2021
Press shift f10 then arrow down a few times and you'll find uninstall
Just enter on this and you should get a little voice telling how far along the
uninstall is

Hope this helps!!

Re: need to bypass the earphone jack on my laptop

Thanks Monty. The adapter I'm replacing only has the earphone jack, and the microphone I have is USB anyway, but from what you said it is the sound card that I want. I just call them adapters, or converters to bypass the earphone jack but as long as it works it doesn't matter what it's called.

Cheap, simple, effective.
No muss, no fuss; just plug them in.
I think the brand I got was Sabrent.
So yes, they are a sound card, but also let you plug in an audio jack, and a mic.

Hi all,

The earphone jack on my laptop doesn't work and I need to replace the USB to 3.5 mm earphone jack adapter I'm using. In looking on amazon I'm seeing quite a few USB to 3.5 mm sound cards, are they the same as an adapter? Btw the plan will be to plug a set of speakers into the adapter that will be plugged into one of the USB ports on my laptop, and no microphone will be in play.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Subject: [TechTalk] need to bypass the earphone jack on my laptop

Hi all,

The earphone jack on my laptop doesn't work and I need to replace the USB to 3.5 mm earphone jack adapter I'm using. In looking on amazon I'm seeing quite a few USB to 3.5 mm sound cards, are they the same as an adapter? Btw the plan will be to plug a set of speakers into the adapter that will be plugged into one of the USB ports on my laptop, and no microphone will be in play.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Troy


JAWS and Windows Ten Question Please.

Hi Everyone,
Can someone please tell me if there is an easier way to uninstall JAWS 2021 in Windows 10 Laptop, other than going through the Control Panel? I already know how to uninstall a program through the Control Panel. I don't think I've ever uninstalled JAWS before, as I usually install it.

Thank you in advance.

Janet


Peace Be With You.


Facebook question

I just noticed that when I go to a friend's link on Facebook, at the top of the page it lists the person's name and below that their is a link that says cancel. If I want to go to the person's page, I need to open their profile. What is the cancel for? I only have family on my Facebook, so it seems rather strange.

Don't worry; I'm not at all interested in doing anything to the registry, all I want to do is a cleaning.

If you use the program in that way, it may be useful. I thought it was being advocated to be run to remove temporary files and clean the registry whifch, I shouldn't say won't help, as I said before, but which I think is so unlikely to help that I would consider it very unlikely.

C Cleaner has a free version as well, it will just not update automatically
or run cleans automatically. You will have to run them manually. You may
need to enable the tabs by clicking the button more details. In the
performance tab you will see CPU button and memory button. You can see the
values by pressing enter, if the percentages are high then go back to the
processes tab and see which process is using up CPU resources.

Do I have to pay for c-cleaner? Also, do I have to pay for it? It said that
my system is up-to-date. I found task manager, but can’t find the
performance tab…

A few things you can look at are:

Make sure that the computer doesn’t have anything blocking the vents such as
table cloths etc…

You can also check for driver and bio updates with the Lenovo vintage app
that should be already installed on your computer.

There is also some performance settings you can adjust in this app that
might help.

You can download C Cleaner to do a clean up of the machine and also to turn
off programs that start up automatically.

You can use task manager under the performance tab to see which program is
using up the CPU resources the most.

Hopefully this helps.

Hi all,

I've had this laptop since March, and I notice that the fan seems to run a
lot,

which I assume means that the laptop gets overheated, any idea why this
might be

happening? I'm running Windows 10 2004, the latest Jaws 2021, and office
365. My

laptop is a Lenovo think book 13s 20r9005vus



Look forward to any thoughts or help anyone can provide!!!

Madison

Where do I get the free version of c-cleaner? Will doing it effect Jaws or MS Office?
