How to Never See a Blue Screen of Death Again?


Well, you could install Linux, which could take you an hour, after you download it. I like Ubuntu MATE and Mint Cinnamon, and haven't used Windows for several years.

Bought used need to by pass password


You didn't say what OS you are using.

1.To try and remove the password protection you can power off the PC.
remove the side panel and then remove the battery. Leave it for 10 minutes, refit the battery and then power up the PC. The password protection may have been removed.

2. Or at start up, enter the bios settings. You may be able to disable the password from within the settings.

3. If you're not bothered which OS you use, try a new install of XP or Windows 7.

If you don't have XP or Windows 7, ask a friend to download linux and burn it onto a dvd for you(or put it onto a usb flash drive). Put the linux dvd into your dvd drive and restart the computer. You will have the choice of completely erasing Windows, or installing Linux alongside Windows.

Linux is free. It will do everything Windows can do. Linux comes with its own version of 'Office'. The best free versions of Linux are Ubuntu or 'Mint'.

You can download Ubuntu here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Webcams do NOT work in Linux. Apart from that, Linux will do everything Windows can do (but free!) and you won't ever get a virus.

I am a brand new Linux Mint user on Maya 13 and I was running the Update Manager after install, when it got to updating configuration files the Manager Just froze, i left it alone for 2hrs.+ and finally...


Hi There!

Actually a great place to start would be the Linux Mint forums. There are a TON of seasoned long-time Linux Mint users there who REALLY know their stuff, and could likely either get you pointed in the right direction, or perhaps even just "hand" you a command line (customized to your situation) which would rectify your issue. (Please see the attached link to get directly to the official Linux Mint support forum)

I will say that in my experience (regarding errors stemming from an interrupted / crashed Linux update operation or a (basically) corrupted grub, I've always found it best to just "bite the bullet" and do a full wipe and reinstall your preferred distro. Also: So far (about 3-4 months now), Mint 18 has been nothing but good to me; so you might consider stepping up to that instead, as there have been a TON of bug fixes and improvements since 13.

For folks with a decent amount of system RAM and video card, I'd recommend the "cinnamon" version. For older computers with 2 GB (or less) of RAM, I'd stick with "MATE" (which is essentially "gnome".

I'm very happy to "meet" another fellow Linux user, and I wish you the best of luck!!

I'd like to install a version of Linux on my laptop. I am a beginner; what ill fit me and how to install it?


For a beginner the best version of Linux for a laptop remains UBUNTU. But you can count on LINUX MINT and the latest version of it is called JULIA.
You can find UBUNTU here. And LINUX MINT here.
The BOTH can be installed via installation DVD and for both also you can TRY BEFORE INSTALL, meaning you can run the version of LINUX LIVE, taste and test it before you will install it on your hard drive.

Install Linux OS


I would recommend installing Linux Mint LXDE, Cinnamon or KDE, which is a free OS available for free download from http://linuxmint.com Cinnamon and KDE are full featured, XFCE is streamlined and slightly faster and a better choice for older computers with less memory and/or storage space. All versions come with Firefox and LibreOffice full Office Suite, capable of saving and reading files in the popular MS Office formats like .doc, .docX, .ppt and xls.

Linux comes with almost everything necessary to begin using the computer immediately after installing the OS.

To install it on a netbook or notebook computer, I'm assuming you don't have a DVD optical drive so you have to install it from a USB thumb drive. If you have a DVD optical drive, I would still recommend installing it from the USB thumb drive, ... it's more reliable and less prone to failures from trying to burn a DVD on old, dirty or out-of tolerance equipment.

First download the .iso file on another computer. If you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit, you can use the 32-bit for both, or try the 64-bit - if that doesn't work, use the 32-bit.

Use a free program to create a bootable USB using the .iso file. (You can't just copy the file to the USB drive) ... I'd recommend using Active ISO Burner from NTFS.com ... here's the download link ... http://www.ntfs.com/iso-burning.htm (You should be using at least an 8 GB size thumb drive).

Once you've created the bootable USB drive from the .iso file, you should be able to insert it and start the computer and see the Linux Mint startup screen. It will come up in LIVE mode, without installing itself, so you can try it out.

If you want to install it, make sure you are connected to the Internet and have your AC power adapter plugged in.

If the computer doesn't come up with the Linux screen, you probably just need to reset your BIOS boot order so it boots from the USB driver first. Plug in the USB drive and start the computer. Look of instructions for set up or boot order, usually pressing F2 while the computer is starting. Follow the directions to move the USB to the top of the boot devices, i.e. about the hard drive. Save changes and restart the computer. It should now boot from the USB. If you have trouble doing this or burning the bootable USB, you might have a geek friend or relative that can help or do it for you.

When the LIVE mode comes up, it displays the Linux desktop with an Install icon. If you double click the Install Icon you will begin the installation process and just follow the simple prompts and create a password when prompted.

Linux never requires anti-virus and does not become infected. You can visit the main http://linuxmint.com website and download the .PDF manual if you are interested.

Your computer is probably 64-bit, but if not, there is also a 32-bit version available for download.

The image shown below is from my Acer and is Linux Mint KDE, which is also available from the same website and similar to LXDE, but more full-featured. All Google programs I know of are available for Linux, since Google uses 100% Linux. Android is Linux also.

Once you install your Linux, you'll want to run the Update Manager to get the latest updates.

On my Acer netbook I have 3 Linux OS's installed. Linux Mint Cinnamon 64-bit, Linux Mint KDE Cinnamon 64-bit and Linux Mint XFCE 64-bit. I select the OS I want at startup when the computer starts.

Hope this helps. bdf3eb0b-7c1d-4c93-b25d-72c3f473ae47.jpg
