    Hey there, good chummers!

    Have been a user on this site in the past with a different account (Windows 7 and here in 10) but was away for a while, and with a more permanent email address- now, with a relatively new and far beefier laptop (2019 model Dell 7720 with an AMD FirePro, portable graphics/CAD workstation) to go with the 2013-vintage desktop rig I put back into service earlier this year, I decided to head on back.

    It didn't click with me at the time the thread I was intending to add my minding to would've resulted in a necropost and I know that's frowned upon in present courtesy, so I left it be. It was suggested I drop a note and introduce myself here instead, so here I am. Thank you again for welcoming this journeyman back into the fold, mes amis!

    -Kirlian.

    Hi All,
    Just joined today, something of an accident, was searching for a 'beep' file to use in a batch script I am writing. The browser landed me on this forum. Having then meandered through the site could immediately see the benefit of joining - so here I am !
    I live in Milton Keynes (about 40 miles north of London). Recently changed to Window 10 Enterprise IoT because of the 10 year MS support. Looking forward to engaging with fellow 'tenners' (not a great singer).
    Cheers
    Dave

    p.s Off now to download the 'Beep' file.

    Good to see and touch base with you, Inphoenix; I feel sure we've spoken here in the past via my former account but I am likewise sure any conversation we had at length was a very long time ago. I was rarely active here for any extended stretches of posting and I doubt I was heavily active in anything but the Windows 7 subForums as a user here in the past.

    I haven't presently had W10 as an OS on either of my two computers for an entire year yet, having finally abandoned my desktop PC's original W7 installation after an OS software fault arose- the hardware was entirely fine, so with a bit of SATA USB enclosure jury-rigging I backed up what little I needed to keep on the drive and formatted the 1TB SSD in prep for its Windows 10 installation- that I attempted to repair but the missing or damaged files were irretrievable, so I decided to take the plunge and go with Windows 10 as my desktop PC's OS as it likely would've been needed to keep Steam and the productivity programs I count on that depend on its frontend running on my equipment, after 2023 became 2024 anyway.

    I'd given the Kubuntu flavour of the Ubuntu Linux operating system the college try on my laptop, after a close friend of considerable vintage suggested I try it before I made up my mind; likewise I could dual-boot both W10 and a Linux OS though it would've worked far better if W10 preceded the second rather than firstly the Linux OS it began with.

    I understand that the W10 bootloader would malfunction or require specialized manual repair if it was the second of the dual-boot OSes installed, and I doubt I could merit those repairs without exceptional difficulty either today or back in October of 2023 when my aforemention friend of veterancy arranged for the Dell 7720 laptop as a gift and creative tool I rather needed at the time and a piece of hardware I could not then have or remotely now be able to afford.

    In the end, the basic needs I have of my laptop, a working and easily installed AMD video board driver package and enhanced or sustained accessibility- I am in the seventh month of progressive recovery from the worst, sustained stretch of stress coupled intimately with moderately severe physical trauma that's ever hit me broadside- and working with Kubuntu's steeper learning curve and frequent lack of many of Windows' customizable accessibility and under-the-hood configuration settings made the decision to switch my laptop's OS to Windows 10 back in April a very reasonable and easy one to make.

    Geez, Kirlian, you are a WIZ! You have probably forgotten more than I'll ever know. I'm currently working with a keyboard/drivers that inputs a period ran.omly, as you can see in the word 'randomly'. My keyboa.d is so vanilla there is no mfg or model or anything that I can use to update drivers. Even the Device Manager do.sn't recognize the darn thing to be able to update d.ivers. The update drivers option doesn't show up. The.e have been lots of help here but to no avail. I've t.ied a new keyboard and I still got the darn random perios. I've ordered another keyboard and will try other stuff .uggested by this wonderful forum. I've missed this for.m and glad you and I are both back.

    Aw, gosh; that is no small kindness you've posited on my behalf, and thank you for that big thumbs-up.

    Most of what I know I've grokked from trial and error, learning in small steps and careful observation over the last 30 year or so; that includes hardware maintenance- like replacing hard drives, RAM sticks, optical drives and SSDs, working with motherboard cabling and wiring everything togther; I couldn't disassemble components like a hard drive nor go remotely that far under the hood- and software troubleshooting, knowing why an installation failed, or if something particular misbehaves I can usually work out the trouble by behaviour I've observed or am familiar with, if not by immediate specifics.

    The most important thing in a place like this, like any other when it comes to software or hardware or just tech in general, is networking and being helpful to others who ask that help with their computers or operating system of choice who come here, as much as being convivial and courteous in these shared forums, which is the least I think we should ever ask of each other in any group environment online or in person. And when we do that, we not only know the windfall of helping others, we reinforce our worth of being able to help, a gift given and received when it's meant kindly.

    I hope you and yours are having an excellent day, Inphoenix; I may be out a bit later (it's about 3:30pm EST, local time) and wherever your journey takes you today, do be excellent to yourself and be kind when you can!

    -Kirlian.
