Is it a hardware problem which has nothing to do with Windows?

    I tried and failed to check the box beside "Allow executing file as program". When I clicked on the box, a cross appeared inside it. When I released the mouse button, the cross disappeared immediately. So, it is impossible to execute the file as a program.

    Open a console and type these commands:

    glmark2
    glmark2-es2

    You may have to download and install some packages if you do not already have them. An easy way to download packages is Synaptic Package Manager.

    I don't believe I give Linux advice in a Windows 10 forum... Excuse me for this sacrilege. I'm going to whip my back for punishment this evening

    I don't really know Linux but Google is your Friend............from

    software installation - How do I install .run files? - Ask Ubuntu

    This advice.....

    Occasionally, some applications and games (eg. some from the Humble Indie Bundle) have .run installers. Before installing using these, check to see if:

    1. it is available from the Software Centre
    2. it is available as a .deb file, which will open in the Software Center

    You can install .run files from the graphical interface, but using a terminal is more likely to give you useful feedback. To install a .run file you need to:

    1. make it executable.
    2. execute it

    This is because .run files are just executable programs that do some unknown magic to install the program. This is similar to what .exe installers do on Windows and is different to the normal methods (at best, using the Software Centre, at worst using .deb files) in which applications are installed in a standard way and can be easily removed.
    Graphical Method

    1. Right click on the file in the file manager and click 'Properties'. Click the 'Permissions' tab and tick the box that says 'Allow executing file as program'.
    2. Double click the file to execute it.

    If this method doesn't work, try using the terminal method.
    Terminal Method
    Assume the file is called some-app.run and is in the folder /home/user/Downloads. You will need to modify these instructions to fit your situation.

    1. Open a terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal).
    2. enter cd /home/user/Downloads
    3. enter chmod +x some-app.run
    4. enter ./some-app.run
    5. if step 4 fails with a message including 'permission denied', try entering sudo ./some-app.run(you will need to enter your password for this).

    Notes

    • Sometimes you will come across .bin files. These are basically the same as .run files.
    • The method to install .run files can be used to execute any file (as long as it has some sort of executable code in it.
    • Be careful using sudo and only use it when absolutely required. Translated into English, it means 'Run this command but allow it to do anything it wants to my computer'. This is why you are prompted for your password.

    I just bought a used i3-4130 CPU. A brand-new CPU cannot be bought alone. I will install it tomorrow. Hopefully, I do not have to reinstall Windows.

    When I contacted a shop via WhatsApp and by phone, they said a Pentium CPU was available at HKD 499 and said nothing else. When I came there, they said the CPU must be sold together with a motherboard. Is that common in where you are?

    I finally bought the said used CPU at another shop.

    I bet the shop just wanted to get rid of the motherboard, that's why they wouldn't sell the CPU separately.

    May have been a OEM CPU, ? (for system builders) not a Retail CPU


    Fingers crossed....

    My point is that they should have told me about that on the phone, so that I would not have wasted my time going there.

    I had installed the i3 CPU, but the same malfunction still happened. What should I do?
