FWIW, the wifi toggle on a Dell XPS is 'Fn' key + 'PrtScr' key. Maybe, on your rig wifi is off by default.
Earlier this month Microsoft issued a huge update to Win 10 that among other things pooched the built in email client Win 10 Mail. The solution is to go to Settings – Privacy – Email and turn on ‘Allow other apps to access email’, reboot, and voila! It works again. Now, this setting is one of the on...
this may be of no use at all (so apologies in advance if that's the case). The Nvidia 1050Ti cards are known to freeze in Windows 7 / 10 when the user is driving a high end or very large monitor. The solution there is to use the Nvidia Control Center app. to change the power management setting from ...
I don't think they have to pursue Ubuntu. I think that for all intents and purposes their 2006 agreement with Novell gave them immediate and continuing access to SUSE's intellectual property.

Despite my earlier tongue-in-cheek suggestions, I don't think that linux veterans will much care what it's called, so I'm assuming that this exercise is really aimed at new users. In that vein, how about "The Disk Magician", which I think implies other functions besides just installing the operating...

Usually when a new sound card is inserted into a motherboard, the integrated sound card is automatically disabled. However since your new card is essentially an external device, I think that you probably will have to enter the bios and manually disable the integrated card.

Started with Red Hat in 1996 but it wasn’t stable enough on my rig to be usable. Moved to Calera in 97-98 and it worked fairly well, but updates became few and far between and then non-existant. I then alternated between Mandrake and Suse between 1999 and 2006. Mid 2006 I switched to Ubuntu for abou...
It may be possible to swap out a laptop's video card depending on how accessible the manufacturer made it, but the reality is that the labour costs will likely outweigh the value of doing so. In my experience, the client has two options: either buy a new machine or install linux on the existing comp...
