Re: can't erase files from your streem

Carolyn Arnold
 

I am going to need some direction about putting the card in
the computer. I have a friend, and I think she might be able
to help me do that. When my 128 one comes, I'll do that and
get the books on it.

You might want to check the switch on the side of your sd
card. It's just a sliding switch, and sometimes they get
changed when you're pulling it out of the streem.

could try formatting the card.

Re: Accessible free PC driver upgrade software

 

Third-party driver updaters are to be avoided like the plague.  There are only three safe sources of driver updates, and "safe" does not mean there may not be an occasional problem, just that your machine will not have any likelihood of getting something you really don't want like malware, adware, viruses, etc.:

1. Windows Update

2. Your computer manufacturer's support pages, driver's and downloads section, or driver updater software they supply, e.g., HP Support Assistant, Toshiba Service Station, and similar.

3. A specific component in your computer's manufacturer, on its support pages or via its driver updater software, e.g., Intel Driver and Support Assistant.

You may be able to find a very accessible driver software DVD as well as an online installation utility on the BHP site. I would request you to be very careful while proceeding with this utility since it tends to install a lot of other unwanted things as well.

Re: Desktop pc with jaws

Hi Allen and Group!

I have been running jaws on a system with a 29.1 GHB processor and 4 GB ram for 5 to 6 years now, and haven't really experienced any sort of slowness or other problems.  The only thing that I notice is that it tends to be a bit slow on booting up and starting jaws.  I am running Win 10 with the latest updates and the system just keeps on keeping on<SMILE!>.  Of course I hope to double my ram at the very least in the not to distant future.  I strongly suspect that if I had 8 to 12 GHB that I would have the ultimate machine! Just another opinion for whatever it may be worth. Good Luck and Have A Good 1!

It sounds to me as though, in some way, a file became interlinked with other files. In other words, something happened and more than one file shares allocation chains that only one file should share. I don't have the technical knowledge to discuss the technical aspect further. I think this kind of problem is very rare but it sounds to me as though that is what happened.


Its been a long time since I've seen anything about this but I believe the term is linked or interlinked, I don't recall which.


I saw this a long time ago and I think I only saw it once when I was
using Windows 3.1 and I got a system faulted message. Using scan disk
found a lot of interlinked files.
