The Computer Group

Leader:  John Howlett - computer@ashbyu3a.co.uk - phone 01530 461774
Helpline: help.computer@ashbyu3a.co.uk

The Computer Group meets twice a month on the first Wednesday and third Monday of the month at 2pm.

We are not all computer geeks, but we do have members who know something about most types of computer whether it is a Windows PC, an Apple Mac, an iPad or an Android tablet.
We also discuss how to look after the files, music or photos on your computer, how to make backups or how to copy them to DVD or all sorts of "interesting" problems.
One thing we can't do is undertake hardware repairs, but we might know someone who can!
So if there is something you don't understand about your computer, from the simplest to the more esoteric, come along and we'll see what we can do for you.
We now have a new Computer Helpline so you can email us with any problems or questions. We can email you back, or better still, you can come along to the next meeting and someone should have worked out your problem and be able to talk you through it.

Send us details of your problem to help.computer@ashbyu3a.co.uk

1st August 2018

A very busy day today, with 8 on hand
Dave needed help to 'follow' a page on Facebook: JD and Bik helped.
Sue Evans needed help to transfer her holiday photos to her laptop. JH helped
Jane Harris needed to load Adobe Reader to read .pdf documents. Colin W helped
JD needed help to speed up his PC when booting up. MS helped
JD also had a question about Kindle battery life. Apart from advice on recharging, no answer was available on overall life.
A visit to PC Clinic seems in order, and a new battery.
(Offline: PC Clinic do not deal with Kindles. So another route must be found, most likely to carefully replace the battery ourselves. Wish us luck!)
