Sorry to hear that, it's quite a blow. :'(

I sympathize. I'm trying to connect a WiFi HP printer to a replaced router. The printer displays the router's SSID and asks for the password, which I enter. Then it says it cannot find the SSID.

I feel for you matey.
This week my wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer and will be having a mastectomy on the 24th.
We are keeping very positive and look at this op as a life saver.
Horrid horrid disease that just creeps up and bites you on the arse and hurts so many people directly and indirectly.

I hope all goes to plan.

Yes it is a horrid disease - not sure it will ever go away.

Every good wish that all turns out for the best Alf. Having gone through where you are at now  my  somewhat  feeble advice is  to view the glass as half full, it worked for us over the 15 years my wife fought  it. Good fortune.

All the best Alf. been there done it. My wife was diagnosed 11 years ago. We just keep going on. My wife and myself had a lot of support from a Breast cancer support group. We later ended up running it for a couple of years.

After putting together 3 hours of research on my next trip in s word document and opening multiple windows in Firefox on my Dell my screen goes black. Happened a couple of weeks or so back to using Firefox when at that time it flashed that signal was lost between pc card / monitor before flashing on again. Looked it up and seems common with people saying a virtual memory issue putting it into screen save mode. I did have lots of windows open. If it wasn't for the word document being unsaved I'd do a forced restart but some suggest it will come out of sleep mode in an hour. Likely or wishful thinking? Any other way of getting it out of sleep mode? HELP!!! Loads of wedding images to do next too. Hope it's not going to be a problem

Ah well. No joy with the  sleep mode ending after an hour so the old switch it off and turn it back on again mode. Seems to be booting OK so I'll alter virtual memory settings in line with some advice I got and regret my schoolboy error of not saving my document as I go! Grrrrrr!  I rarely do that either. :uglystupid2:

And thank goodness for autosave - word document there to save properly when I got booted up. Now wonder what the issue is and worry about my editing needs!

In power options you need to set turn off display to never. In control panel select System and Security and select System then select Advanced System Settings.  This will open the System Properties window, click on the Advanced Tab and then on the Performance Settings. This will open the window to allow you to change the Virtual Memory settings. If you have 16gb  of memory installed then change it to 5gb and see how you get on.  :tup:

It says my current "total paging size for all drives is 6071MB"
When I hit change it says Minimum allowed is 16mb Recommended is 9106 and currently allocated is 6071 as a system managed size. Gives me the option to custom size it and fill in 2 boxes
Initial size ?
Maximum size ?
Your 16gb suggestion seems out of kilter with what I am seeing.
I was getting a windows falg stating that my AMD/ATI video driver had stopped working on the two occasions I had problems but clicking for an online solution brought nothing up suggesting I try again later. Seems OK again for now. Not sure if I should do anything.
