  • Problems with HP laptops, faceplace cracking and hinge failing?

    I replaced one faceplate at a huge expense and later the original problem caused the hinge to nearly fall off.  The next one had the same design flaw and also cracked after the warranty expired.  There aren't many laptops to choose from due to COVID, and the fact that the crap comes from China, none the less, I need to be online. I looked at a new HP and it looks like they have made an attempt to strengthen the faceplate.  Anyone have better with the newer models?

  • Walmart laptop protection plan?

    Anyone use this plan and have problems? My laptop was repaired fast without problem. I expected I'd have to reinstall programs I'd purchased, but I didn't realize they would delete all the ones that came with it. I can't even get my printer reinstalled. All I can do is connect to the Internet. If I'd declined the plan at least I'd have a new laptop.

  • Thanks for "HP printer not connecting to laptop" answers, so, do you also hate win 8?

    I had already tried all your suggestions, nothing worked. Win8 requires a Hotmail account (go figure), so I ended up with two user names on my laptop. After days of frustration I decided to switch users, printer immediately showed as being connected and it worked fine. So in case someone asks this question in the future, this might be their problem. My question actually is; "anyone else find Win 8 to be a major FAIL for Microsoft?"

  • Help! computer not responding error?

    I just switched to AT&T Internet, it's slow, could that be my problem?. Found a MS fix it site once and it worked for my desktop, but can't find it now, for my laptop.

    I tried this site today.

    Keep getting error message:

    Trouble shooting cannot continue because an error has occurred

    We're sorry but the program encountered an error and cannot continue. Please try again later.

    Anyone have a site address or an easy fix solution (I'm not a computer whiz).

  • Prison and Social Security?

    If husband goes to jail he stops receiving his Social Security benefits. Would a spouse who has never worked continue to get half of what he got, or would she get the amount that he was getting?

  • Can medicaid take property that's in the other spouses name only?

    Are there any marital assets that Medicaid can't touch, like an IRA's in the other person's name?

    Husband was self employed so I put the bulk of my earnings in a SEP IRA for him, he now has a lot more IRA funds in his name and he also gets nearly twice as much social security than I do. If he went to a nursing home they would use his SEP and SS, plus our joint savings (it wouldn't last very long). I couldn't afford to stay in our home. Therefore, I wonder 1.) Could Medicaid dip into my IRA or only assets in both our names? 2.) If the small condo that we rent out, were in my name only, our assets would be more evenly distributed, except for his social security income.

    I don't mind them taking all his assets but I would at least like to keep my half since I'd no longer get his IRA or SS. If it got down to me only being allowed the minimum (est $104,000) they would deduct our prepaid funeral plan, est $20,000, and if he went to a nursing home in less than 5 years, they would also deduct money he plans to give to a poor relative soon (as much as $40,000). He feels half our savings is his and he can do with it as he pleases. I grew up poor and dieing that way really scares me.
