I let my son take care of any other problems. I let him know that I clicked on the update and followed through. Then he goes and takes a look at what was downloaded by Windows. I have never had a problem. If a download failed, he looks to see what it was for and usually finds out that the problem it was to fix did not exists in my computer. I never download anything on my own. I will let Norton know if I want a certain program and it will tell me if it is safe or not.

When I was in the workforce, I used to be computer savvy. But now I let others handle any problems. As long as I can sit down in front of my computer and use it for my own purposes, I am happy.

Yeah, it's been out for a while and I haven't heard anything bad. I guess it's time to download that, if it's still available free. My DH is professional computer geek, but he does mostly Linux stuff, so he has no idea if it's an okay upgrade.

99.9% sure you won't have issues. Unfortunately there is no way to "uninstall" 8.1; you would have to do a fresh re-install of Win 8.0.

Depending on what input sockets you have on your TV you can just plug your laptop, computer into your tv and there ya go HDMI is probably the easiest. You might have to press the F4 key to port the signal to your tv.


If you have a smart tv there are usually facilities for streaming information from your various devices wirelessly. But each TV model will be slightly different so you would need to read the manual.


You would also probably find that if you googled connecting my laptop to TV model XYZ then you would get some easy instructions.
