I bought a new gaming laptop of the following specs
16GB RAM
128GB SSD + 1TB HDD

The problem is that the windows is installed on the SSD making the size of the SSD to remain just 68GB
I'm now confused if I should continue installing my softwares on the SSD or the HDD.
Considering the performance of the application/computer if installed on the HDD as it is not the one which the windows is installed.
Install on the HDD Na. If the performance is OK. Kudos.
I believe they put the HDD to be used more for file storage.
But if this bugs your life too much, the final solution is to clone the SSD unto the HDD. The windows will now be on the HDD. Format the SSD.
As per, the installation will no be reverse of what you have. Depending what you use your PC for it may be OK or not.
Me I use Excel and outlook. So I really don't send.

It'll revert automatically.
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly.

what will I do to solve this issue. OS- WINDOWS 10.

If your Processor is 64bits, you may decide to reinstall your OS to 64bits, however, if you don't experience any ish with some programs, you may wish to disregard the upgrade.

Guys, my Windows 10 I downloaded on an unknown site and got a lot of problems, including hidden viruses, which I had to remove and clean the laptop for a long time. Then I decided that I had enough and bought a normal Windows 10 in the store buyoemsoftonline.com. Now I work quietly and do not know any problems.

Option 1:
Open the Run explorer (Win +R) > type services.msc > OK > right click on
1) Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) > Properties > disable the service.
2) Windows Updates > properties > disable > apply > Ok.
Option 2:
Set your power to be at power saver, disconnect your PC from AC and your data is safe! Anytime your PC is on power saver, all updates are suspended.

Pls, explain to me how to enable my windows 10 pc update, it was formally disabled but now I want to enable the update.

Please help! Just recently, anytime I press any keyboard key on my laptop, it brings up something else like shortcuts. For example, if I press key F, it brings on Find, Window key brings up system info and so on. It is annoying, how can i stop it.

Buy 64bits version or download the .iso file from here. To activate, download the Microsoft toolbox cuz those CDs are not activated or buy official product key from Microsoft!

Your attached pix is not clear, but is your network active? Have you clicked on Retry?
Sorry, how did you stop the updates initially? You might need to reverse that deactivation process and Retry

You want to buy the 2015 CD and install 2015 initial release in 2019? Do you know how many updates and improvement have been made on the O.S since then?
Again to download latest windows 10 you must have at least 5gb,the iso file is 4gb plus. If you pause the download and didn't resume within 24hrs,you will have to start again. Do you have the data?
If you are in Lagos,I have Windows 10 1809 update I have written to USB. I can give you to install it on your PC.
Saturday and Sundays only.

Do you have access to sizable amount of data now? If not better leave it or else itwill finish your data. Windows update requires large data.
Also lack of enough data cause incomplete downloads, windows 10 is known to always try to install these incomplete downloads,which cause problems to your PC eg corrupts windows files and your PC won't be able to boot to desktop.

The Retry button should start the update process manually provided your network is good.

As earlier advised, if your system is working well, don't bother with updates but if you insist, try this:

Win+R > services.msc >
a) Windows Module Installer > automatic > start > apply > ok
b) windows update > start > apply > OK
c) Background intelligent Transfer Service > Running > apply > ok

If this doesn't work, you'll need to modify your Registry Editor

If you meant restoring missing drivers as a result of upgrade or fresh install. Use the following options
1. Try device manager,any driver there with yellow icon is missing or not working properly. Right click and select update for each ones
2. Try downloading each driver from the internet and install. Eg " Hp elitebook 1040 video driver". Make sure you download from HP website only.
3. Try third party software like Driver pack or driver reviver.
I recommend driver reviver. But it requires key.
Send me your email,I will send it to you with the crack.
How to use driver reviver:
Install
Close the software
Copy the crack in crack folder
Paste in C:/driver reviver folder
Send a shortcut of the crack icon to desktop
Go to desktop and click the icon
It loads all drivers,downloads and update them in few minutes.
Note: You must be connected to internet for it to update your drivers.

So I tried to change my laptop motherboard... My processor is core i3 2*** or something like that... But the two boards the repairer tried with his core i3 3*** processor and mine too only work normally but shuts down without warning after exactly 30mins.


Please who knows where I can get a better HP 650 motherboard that works normally and for how much...


Thanks.

How much have you spent so far in buying the motherboard that still didn't work? Take it from me guys,even though MB is repairable, please if your fault PC is a result of bad MB,just get another fairly used laptop. Because you will spent almost what it will take you to buy a fairly used of that PC.
