    I have an ASUS laptop that’s a couple of years old now (Windows 10) and I recently tried to burn a CD for the first time in a while. This failed so I used a ONE FOR ALL branded cleaning disc to try and clean the drive. It made quite a noise so I removed it and realised that the little brush...

    Very slow internet with Windows 10

    I bought a TP-Link 300 Mbps Wireless USB adapter as my old adapter was slow. I installed the driver and got the same slow Speed Test result of 1 Mbps. My iPhone has a Speed Test result of 60 Mbps so it's not the router. What could it possibly be?

    Windows to CCA

    I'm back digitising some CDs and still casting to a CCA for the time being (almost certainly investing in a Yamaha Musicast amp in the new year unless there's a better option). Is there a better (free) option for casting audio files than VLC or am I doing VLC wrong?

    Hello, quick question. When executing bootrec /scanos in Windows PE, I get 0 installations of Windows (or something like that.) Is that a problem or is that because I am using UEFI? Looking forward to the responses!
