Signal booster I have a Lenovo laptop and the signal is two bars at best, and regularly cuts out completely, telling me to insert sime like it doesnt recognise it. Switching off and on works/doesnt work in equal measure. Is there a boosting device or something I could use?

Before trying to boost signals, check the aerial wires are connected in your laptop and your router is working properly.

My tv in the loft doesnt work at all well it runs from a booster on thevfirst floor then through a bedroom with a splitter then up to my bedroom in the loft

TV signals are funny things. A signal that is perceived as being weak might not be at all because unless great care (and some luck) and some good materials are used longish cable runs can gather so much interference the tv set behaves as if the signal is weak.

A splitter will halve the signal.

Ideally a booster should be positioned close to the aerial so it is amplifying a cleaner signal and not amplifying interference. A masthead signal booster is the best option for a single or double downlead.
For a rooftop aerial and multiple downleads, first the aerial must be a high gain type in the frequency band used in your area. The shortest downlead possible would then feed into a signal booster (in the loft) with multiple outlets so each room or tv set has an exclusive downlead that hasn't been interfered with or split.

Each downlead should be low-loss double-wrapped coaxial cable with the best quality plugs you can find.

You might find it easier to obtain an exclusive aerial for your bedroom tv.

You could try replacing the aerial cable to your room with low-loss cable and get rid of the splitter and booster and replace with a quality booster with two outlets...

How do I cut and paste with a lenovo think pad?

In Windows OS, cut & paste is commonly done with a right click of the finger pad as one would use a mouse. There are shortcut key strokes, but this always works and you'll never forget it. Control C and Control P are the short cuts.

The chain groove in the bar could be badly worn. Try flipping the bar over to see if things improve. Make sure the chain is properly tensioned. If better, but still giving problems, then buy a new bar. Chains will do this if they are not sharpened equally on both sides. Good luck!
