Internet or Computer Problem DOUBLE POSTING SORRY

My laptop has Windows 10 with Chrome -- all up to date. For the last few days I am getting this type of screen when I go on line. It happens with all web pages. Do I have a computer problem or a connection problem. Refresh does not solve the problem. https://i.imgur.com/YzHyr4jl.png "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: North rim of Grand Canyon?

If you can dry camp, check out Free Camping and Campendium for campsites on the left side of the road to the North Side NP. I think they call the area "East" GC. It is NFS land and at some places you can park within 100 yards of the GC edge. Beware, of COLD snow weather that time of year. I do not known when the NP and the road to GC closes for the winter.

RE: Slide out permanently out

If the roof is OK why go the the expense. The cost of the "shed" is about what a "replacement" used TT would cost.

Windows 10 run as Administrator

I have upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I am listed as an Administrator user yet Windows 10 keep asking "to run as administrator". How do I get W10 to understand that I am an administrator.

RE: Laptop dies when AC outlet is turned off.

Battery on it's last legs I do not think the battery is bad. It is less than 9 months old and I almost never use it. Is it instant or does it go thru the shutdown process? Goes off instantly.

RE: Laptop dies when AC outlet is turned off.

Yes it is an older laptop. I always use the shut down option, but this time I accidentally flipped the switch and was surprised that the laptop died.

RE: Laptop dies when AC outlet is turned off.

If you are flipping the switch on the strip, but leaving the computer plugged in, it sounds as though the computer still registers that it is plugged in and doesn't flip to battery power. If you unplug the computer, it goes to battery power...yes? This is what I am doing. And, if you only get 1/2 hour of power on the battery, I think you probably need a new battery. I can get over an hour from the battery. I stated the 1/2 hour so the reader would know the battery was not dead.

Laptop dies when AC outlet is turned off.

My laptop is plugged into a GE surge protected electrical outlet strip. The laptop battery is charged. The laptop will run more than 1/2 hour on the battery. If I unplug the AC power cord direct at the laptop the laptop continue to run on the battery. . . . :) However, it I flip the switch on the GE outlet strip the laptop dies for lack of power. . . :h . . . Does not make any sense to me. ????

RE: Vinyl plank flooring - snap lock with history of success?

I installed in a house with uneven floor. Had to have it removed because after a few days the long seam opened -- short seam did well. In a RV with large change in temp may be a problem I install THIN nail down engineered wood in my TT. Used short "brads" to hold down the floor. Yes the slides marked the floor (even after raising the slides as high as I could) at two places but much better than carpet.

RE: 14 inch vs 17 inch Laptop

If the keyboard feels too small, use an external keyboard and mouse combo. How do you use an external keyboard with a laptop? . . . . :h

14 inch vs 17 inch Laptop

I current have a 17 inch laptop. It is mechanical sick (bad keyboard, 250Gb HD is full and screen sometime shows problems) and need to be replaced. I do not need a new laptop a use one on ebay will do. If I go with a 14 inch laptop will the keys be the same size as a 17 inch? I know that I will lose the number pads. Do any of you old people (I am 82) have problems typing on a 14" keyboard? I plan to go to Best Buy or Office Depot and try out a few 14" versions.

RE: Yosemite/Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks

Kings Canyon is good for a one day trip unless you are a hiker. Yosemite is full of visitors and no parking by 10:00 AM. We stayed at the NP campgrounds at Sequoia a few days and then camped outside the north entry of Yosemite.

Laptop or Tablet computer -- I need a new one.

I have always stored my data on my home desktop or laptop computer. I do not trust cloud storage. I think it is a plan to get one hooked on the cloud and then "free" become expensive monthly charge or like PhotoBucket you find they have change and your data is not what you thought it was. My son on the other hand has a Chromebook which does not have a hard drive and all his data is on the cloud. He loves his Chromebook. I can see the advantage of the lightweight Chromebook while traveling. I mostly use MS Office and some of my Access data is very sensitive with driver license number and social security numbers of about 40 people in the database. I do not need to share the data with anyone else and I do not use a smartphone. My phone is an old fashioned flip phone. Your thoughts on a new computer are welcome. What is a good tablet to run MS Office?

RE: I-24 North of Nashville

You could get off I-24 at Clarksville and take TN46 (?) to Dickson then I-840 to I-65. They are "red" roads but OK for an RV.
