    Thanks for trying to help but my question applies to a tablet not a PC...guess I asked in the wrong forum...I ended up reverting to factory settings and started over. Thanks again.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes. If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible. Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB http://www.onepcbsolution.com/ There is a connection problem such as a bad cable for internal hard drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Hope this helps.

Installed Windows 10. Can't play spider solitaire (old version). It's gone.


well no its not gone , but it is in a totally different place now.

if you look at the new start button location (lower left side) you now see it brings up tiles (boxes) one of those tiles is labeled games/apps you click in it and your transported to a new window opening up , this is the game/app download center , you can browse games (look for solitare ) and then you will need to sign up for a game app/download now some games do charge you and some are free (lots actually) I know candy crush is free and so is zuma (my fav) but lots of others are too after u select a user name and password and it accpepts it )ok) then you should be able to download or better still play off web (no memory use) your game of choice , hey and later you will see that tile in the start location showing up a icon for your game !!

Hi my galaxy s4 has been giving me pop up massages that my google play store has stop functioning and the touch screen its very slow to respond and most applications are very slow to open and the keyboard...


Reboot phone and retry to see if that solves it.

Upgrade the firmware to the latest stock version.

Remove any free apps that might be crashing or downloading lots of adverts.
Make sure you are in a good reception area for your 3g or wireless. Google play needs a good network connection to download its updates and apps.
