  • Why do apps in my Java phone (Samsung Duos) sometimes vanish after the SD card in which they are stored is inserted into a laptop?

    I have a Samsung Duos SM B-313E which is a basic Java phone.

    It has all the basic apps like Facebook, Twitter etc. except Whatsapp.

    I have installed e-book reading software like Foliant and Albite Reader on a Memory Card and also uploaded some text and epub files on the same Memory Card. I can read the books alright.

    I have also installed a basic offline compass (no GPS) which is simple to use.

    I also watch 3gp videos on it.

    I insert the Memory card into the laptop in order to copy and paste files on to it (epub, text, 3gp videos or MP3 files).

    Sometimes, all of a sudden, after removing the Memory card, I find that the Opera Browser, Foliant as well as the compass has been deleted. The Saved Pages folder is there but it does not work.

    I then have to redownload all these, a very tedious job.

    What could be the reason for these apps suddenly disappearing?

    Please let me know so that I can prevent this problem from happening.

    In case that happens again, is there is an easy way to recover the lost data?

  • Sewage water seeps into our open well. Is it possible to fix this problem without repairing the public sewer?

    Sewage water seeps into our open well. The water smells foul and is black..

    The sewer (gutter) in front of our house had been blocked. We got it unblocked by calling the City Corporation people.

    Now, the well water is alright but this is a temporary measure. The permanent measure would be to repair the sewer which costs a lot and can only be done by the authorities concerned.

    We have submitted a petition to the Municipal Corporation. I was told that it would take years before they water-proofed the sewer.

    Therefore, I want to know whether it is possible to repair the open well, perhaps seal its walls so that no sewage water gets into it.

    Does anyone have any solution to this problem?

  • Though Bruce Lee has achieved legendary status, the martial art he founded, Jeet Kune Do, is not that popular. Why?

    Bruce Lee needs no introduction.

    Since his death in 1973, his martial art, Jeet Kune Do, has not grown much.

    It is hardly as popular as Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu or even Shotokan Karate.

    While Bruce Lee is idolized, the martial art he founded, Jeet Kune Do, is not taken very seriously. Why?

    What could be the reasons?

    I have a Toshiba Inspiron N5040 Laptop.

    While replacing it's keyboard, I forgot to remove the battery. I replaced the keyboard with the battery in place.

    After the keyboard was fixed, I tried to power on the laptop. It did not power on.

    I removed the battery and inserted the power cable and put on the switch. It still did not power on.

    I tried all the remedies available online, like removing the battery, pressing the power button for 20 seconds and then inserting the battery. It failed to power on.

    If anyone could provide a solution, I would be grateful.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Who was the Chinese-American actor who auditioned for "The Green Hornet" before losing the role to Bruce Lee?

    I have a question about a martial arts movie actor of the 1970's. I can't recall his name.

    I first read about him in the October 1978 issue of Fighting Stars magazine (which does not exist now).

    He auditioned for Green Hornet before losing the part to Bruce Lee. He was an Asian, a Chinese like Bruce Lee.

    He starred in quite a few martial arts movies and TV series. I am not sure if the TV series was the popular "Kung Fu", starring David Carradine.

    He was close to Harold "Oddjob" Sakata, almost his foster son.

    He was not a trained martial artist. When he was first selected for his role, he was sent to Ed Parker for martial arts training by his producers.

    I never could get hold of a copy of that particular Fighting Stars magazine again. Therefore, I just don't know what happened to that actor.

    This is all I remember about the actor.

    Hopefully, from these clues, someone reading this could tell me the name of the actor and whether he is still alive.

  • Why am I not able to play videos saved to a Memory Card in Samsung Metro B313E mobile phone?

    I bought a new Samsung Metro B313E which is a feature phone. It is supposed to play videos too.

    I can record and play videos in its camcorder but I cannot play videos saved to an external SD card.

    After inserting the Memory Card (SD card) into it, I am just not able to play videos although audio files can easily be played.

    That is the only problem I have had so far, not being able to play videos saved to an external SD card.

    In the SD card, I saved videos only in 3GP format because I had heard that Samsung Metro B313E supports only this.

    No, I did not exceed the capacity of the SD card which is 16 GB.

    I have NOT yet inserted a SIM card in it. Could this be the reason? If not, what is the solution?

  • I am neither able to make nor receive calls on my Gigaset A490 cordless phone. Why?

    I just bought a new Gigaset A490 cordless phone for land line.

    I am able to save phone numbers and names in it. I am also able to charge the batteries fully.

    What I am not able to do is make or receive calls.

    I have set it up as per the instructions.

    The power adapter works fine. All other functions work properly except the telephone cord.

    Common sense would suggest that there is a problem with the phone cord.

    In my house, the socket for the telephone cord is an old two-pin one.

    The phone cord supplied with Gigaset A490 is a modular connector. This cannot fit into the old two-pin socket.

    Therefore, I tried to use another cord with a two-pin plug at one end and a modular connector at another but this did not work.

    What could be the reason?

    Do modular connectors work ONLY with modular sockets? Is it not possible to plug them on to old two-pin sockets the way I tried to?

    Will Gigaset A490 work ONLY with the phone cord supplied and not with any other? In that case, will I have to change the socket to a modular socket?

    Kindly guide me on what to do.

  • Who was the man with a monstrous face (like a leper's) who wore a skin face mask about six years ago? The video had gone viral.?

    I had seen a video on the internet about six or seven years ago, of a man with an unbearably monstrous face. He wore a skin face mask which hid his face and made it look normal.

    In the video, he asks whether the interviewer could bear looking at his face if he removed the mask, Viewer discretion was advised.

    On taking off his face mask, one could see an unbearably ugly face, mostly bone and almost no skin, like it had been eaten away by leprosy.

    Could any reader remember the video? If yes, please give me the link.

  • My new laptop battery charges up to 100 percent but drops down to 60 percent immediately after unplugging. How should I solve this problem?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite C850-B883 laptop. After using it for more than two years, I found that after its battery showed 100 percent charge, on unplugging, it ran the laptop only for ten minutes before blacking out. Therefore, I bought a new laptop battery. This charges up to 100 percent but drops down immediately to 60 percent after unplugging the charger. On plugging in again, it immediately shoots up to 100 percent. After unplugging, it once again drops to 60 percent. After this, it discharges normally.

    Another thing I have noticed is that the charging indicator light switches off after charging 100 percent. This used to never happen earlier. The charging indicator used to be switched on as long as the charger was plugged in.

    Why is my new battery not charging and discharging properly? No, it is not an adapter problem. I tried charging my laptop with another adapter and the result was the same. I suspect it must be some software or settings problem. I would be grateful if someone suggested a solution. Thanks in advance.
