Re: Jaws Say All being interrupted?

Hi David, My computer does have a touch screen, but this is not relevant I believe, since I am using an external keyboard.

 

One of the statements I can think of that it says just before it freezes is, “Desk top notification.”

 

I know there are others, but right now I do not remember them exactly.

 

Thanks for your thoughts!

Vicky, does your computer have a touch screen? I'm just wondering if it might be that you may have inadvertently touched the monitor or perhaps the mouse during the reading.

Re: Fault with brand new external drive

Walter Ramage
 

Hi. I have always been pleased with Amazon customer service and this case
is no different. I spoke to an agent yesterday afternoon and I recieved a
new replacement drive this afternoon, that is less than 24 hours and the
replacement drive has been sent without charge. They sent me a QR code for
the return item and I have until the 1st of February in which to return it.
Normally a company will wait until the faulty item has been returned before
issuing a refund or replacement but in this case it was replaced without
question. I'm going to keep an eye out just in case they issue a refund to
my cc. I do appreciate their trust because these drives are not cheap.
Interestingly the new replacement drive has been working since 4:40pm my
time, it is now 7:40pm and it is still working without trouble so far, long
may that last. Walter.

printer with touch screen

Howard Traxler
 

Good morning folks,

This morning, I see that Heartland America has an HP Envy all-in-one printer on sale.  It has a touch screen.  Has anyone had experience with a touch screen on a printer?  I do need a printer, and if I can work this one, I'll order it.  Hopefully, the touch screen functions can be duplicated in the software or driver.  Or maybe I could just learn how to touch?

Thanks.
Howard

I think there is something wrong with the drive. Also, let's say, for the
sake of argument, that the problem could have been corrected if you had this

or that program or utility. The purchaser isn't required or expected to
correct defects even if he can and attempts to do so often violate the
warranty.

Its possible the problem is caused by a defect in the cable connecting the
drive and trying another one would have been a good idea, but I see little
prospect of anything else you might have done correcting the problem. I
doubt that would have either.

Hi all. I have just recently purchased from Amazon 2 WD 28tb external
drives. I have loaded files on to one but the second drive appears to have
a problem. I have spoken to Amazon and I will be returning the drive this
coming week and they have sent a replacement which I received this afternoon

and so far appears to be working normally.

The purpose of this post is to discover if it was possible for me to have
rectified the problem and avoid returning the item.



I started yesterday transferring 14.7tb on to this new drive but at random
times an error would occur, I've been told that when that happens an orange
light flashes on the drive whereas a constant white light shows when it is
working normally. When the error occurs I get the message that the
requested action can't be completed because of an I/O error and if I want
help with the problem the error code is 0x8007045d.



My computer knowledge is very limited but I did do a Google search but the
main results were that fixing this shouldn't be attempted unless you know
what you are doing, and I don't. I also found an option to download a tool
to fix an I/O error. In the end I decided the best thing was to return it
to Amazon.



When I got the error I couldn't get access to the drive, I was told the
location wasn't available. If I turned the drive off then back on or
restarted the computer then I could get access, until the error re-occurred.

So, is returning the item the best thing or could I have repaired this issue

myself? By the way, I connected the drive to two different computers with
the same result. I'm just curious as to how one goes about sorting out this

kind of issue. Walter.
