    When he's fixed it start up the machine in the shop and check your RAM and hardware devices. I'm sure he is a fine and trusted chap, but I've known some to remove some RAM and worse ...

    will be interested to see if the new install of windows on the new hard drive fixes the USB ports

    the old hard drive should be popped into an external USB case and see what it says

    ^Or Navigator? If 2014, doesn't seem old enough for the HD to be fucked already.

    I wonder if he could have got to restore while trying to reboot? If I remember right, you hold shift and windows key down simultaneously while rebooting...might take to or three tries. Then go to advanced options and restore from the latest system image. I've had to do that twice now too. I had set PC to sleep after two hours inactivity and then it wouldn't come back awake until I did the restore rigamarole. Think that happened, in both instances, shortly after Win10 updates.

    For all following the thread. It's not the HD causing the probs.

    Is that a cryptic way of saying that with a new hard drive and the OS re installed your USB ports are all not working.

    Did the computer expert flash the latest bios and install the latest drivers when he gave your computer it's birthday massage?

    Dill I have done what you say a few times after being told on Google search. I've just did it again as per your instruction and as always I get a notification 'No results for Hardware and Devices'. That seems to be my sticking point.
    Try the Cantana or Cortana wizard, known to get it right sometimes.

    Last post on this matter. Somchai says the CPU is fcuked. I'm non the wiser but he says he can fix but may be better to buy another. In this case, cuz I'm rich , I'll buy another. I want an 'all in one'. Are 'Acer' any good?

    The great thing about having a desktop computer is that its parts are easily changeable, ie Motherboard, ram, CPU, graphics card, network card, bluetooth card, hard drive, fan and power supply and it can never ALL be fucked.......Well... not until you leave it with Somchai to repair overnight.

    As for all in ones- Get yourself an iMac or iPad

    Have a look at the Lenovo Ideacentres.

    Good, reliable kit.
