I used to have the same problem. Click on the spanner on top right corner, then on 'About Google Chrome'. The Chrome update will start installing automatically, and should sort the problem.

Awesome. Just read this. Was beginning to piss me off big time. Cheers.

My computer has started to make ringing noise, it's coming out the computer (a desktop a few years old but only use it for Internet). It's similar to a telephone ring and only seems to happen if it's been on for a while or if I'm downloading any large files it comes on if it's taking a while to download, any ideas what this is?

I thought there was already a thread on this but I had a look and couldn't see it.

My question is, if I buy a domain name (forehead.eu is available for £2.99 for the year), are there plenty of programs on the net which would help me program it and shit?

If you pay a couple quid more then you can get a professional web editor, not sure if it's a couple quid more a year or just a one off payment.

I'd need to look into it but I reckon having a website would be pretty cool. I'd obviously need to look into any fine print first.

Just looking for any nifty tips from anyone who's done it before.

My father in law stays in Spain and wants to watch Sky Go on his laptop , his son has a Sky account here which he can use to set it up. However the service isn't available outside the UK. Can you get round this ?

Google search for UK based proxies. When you find one, key in the SKY url you want, and press go. If it doesn't work, try another one, and so on. I know the BBC are quite tricky and block a lot of proxy sites, not sure about SKY... Try loads of free ones before you consider any you have to pay for..

This is the kind of post which gets website designers really pissy, because it looks like any fule can do their job. Personally I used iWeb to build a site and the 1-2-3reg.co.uk or somesuch entity to host it for a couple of quid a year. Frankly it's quite easy, just drag and drop stuff. You might want to look at Dream Weaver, the aforementioned iWeb or Rapid Weaver. However this is merely what I did, there may well be far better advice out there.

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to connect my HTC Legend to my Laptop via wifi so I can browse the internet on my phone? If this is possible can anyone tell me how I would go about setting this connection up?

Which way round do you mean?

Do you mean (1) using your phones data connection to browse the internet on the laptop, or (2) use your laptops internet connection to browse the internet on your phone?

(2) should be easy enough, just set up internet sharing (or whatever its called these days) in windows.

(1) depends on which version of Android you have and whether or not your mobile company has locked it.

Go to "Settings > Wireless & Networks > Tethering & Portable Hotspots" - if you dont have this then you cant do it

Once in there, go to "Portable Wifi hotspot settings > Configure wifi hotspot", put in a name for the SSID (anything you like), pick "WPA2 PSK" for security and enter a password (if youre bothered about securing it)

Then switch it on.

You should then be able to see the wireless network on your laptop

I meant (2).

Hmm, would you be able to give a brief walkthrough of how to set up this internet sharing? I'm not good with stuff like that on computers...

p.s, I don't have a router, I get my internet via cable if that makes a difference.

I dont think Ive ever actually actually done it before!

A google search for internet sharing and whatever version of windows you have should get you a guide

Another problem on the HTC Chacha :lol:.

My phone usually comes up with the low storage message, so I need to go in and delete my internet history, facebook data etc. My mate was on it looking at it and the message came up, he asked what to do and I said just clear the data on the one with the highest data, so he done that. He deleted the contacts storage. It was easy enough to get most of my numbers back because of the link with Facebook, but from now on whenever I try to save a different number, ie one not from facebook, it doesnt have it and just doesnt save. Any help :(?

Rechargeable batteries, talk to me.

I have this and I would like some new batteries for it. Will any old batteries do assuming they are of the same calibre (not sure if that is the right phrase), i.e. 2300mAh NiMH or do I have to stick with UniRoss?

Uniross make both NiMH + Nicad , you dont need to stick to that brand, I would get the NiMH as they have a longer lifespan regarding number of recharges. (unless the batteries are for something like a remote control then NiCad be fine).

The 2300maH is the amount of charge each battery can hold in milliamp hours, the larger the number the longer between recharges.

I had this problem. Simply put Android does not support Ad-Hoc networks out the box. Now if you have a Windows 7 laptop you are in luck as you can use one of these programs here. Connectify is meant to be the best but I've read good reviews about Virtual Router too. I don't have a Win7 machine so I had to root my phone, install Android Debug Bridge and then replace the WPA Supplicant file with the one listed here in Endor43 post. It is quite a complex process and not for the technologically impaired.

Cheers. It'll be for things like my X-Box controllers, wireless mouse or tv remote.

I have Uniross 2800Mah batteries out of Maplin for my Xbox. Really long life between charges. I have 2 sets, once one runs out I change them and charge the old ones.

I'll look into it over the weekend. I only have one set and want a second for the same reason as you. Cheers.
