Humor During a Printer Return and Setup #HumorInHomePrinterSetupHonolulu by in home computer, tablet and smart cell phone tutor, mobile virus removal, repair and setup specialist, dual certified teacher, website designer and SEO expert J.

I ended up making three house calls in the Salt Lake area here in Honolulu Hawaii for a printer setup. I setup a printer of a well-known brand for an in-home computer client. He had bought the printer himself and then called me and asked me to set it up and install the software he needed to run the printer.


Two weeks later I got a call from him stating the printer was not working correctly. After my diagnostic I determined was a mechanical issue where the printer cartridges stop moving for no reason causing an error on the printer. I recommended that he returned it and to tell the electronic stores this,


“The computer guy said it's a mechanical issue.”


My in-home computer client called me about a week later with his new printer for me to set up. I asked him how it went returning the printer to the electronic store. He told me they tried to give him a hard time about it until he said that he had his own computer repair guy check it out and the computer repair guy said it was a mechanical issue. Upon hearing that they agreed to give him a refund


I got my mobile computer repair client laughing when I told him this,


“Telling the electronics store your computer guy says has the same power as saying your wife says at the grocery store.”


Have fun with your computer and printer,

Rick

Your friendly neighborhood mobile printer setup guy here on Oahu

Some Mac users may encounter a stranger wi-fi issue where the wireless menu icon has an “X” in it, and the wi-fi dropdown menu says “Wi-Fi: No Hardware Installed”. Since we’re all dependent on wireless networking these days, having no functioning wi-fi connection can be very frustrating, but fortunately this is usually a really simple fix.


 

Typically if you experience this problem, you’ll see the ‘Wi-Fi: No hardware installed’ message after waking a Mac from sleep, rebooting the Mac, or sometimes after installing a system software update. It can happen on any MacBook, MacBook Pro, Air, iMac, Mac Mini, Mac Pro, and virtually any other hardware, though MacBook users are usually the first to notice it given the propensity for wireless networking usage with Mac laptops.

The 2 Step Solution: NVRAM & SMC Resetting
The trick to resolving the wi-fi hardware not installed error is usually two parts; you’ll reset the SMC and reset the NVRAM as well on whatever Mac that is displaying the problem message in the wireless menu. This two-part troubleshooting method works on every Mac and every version of Mac OS X, so it doesn’t matter which model or OS version you are experiencing trouble with.

Since resetting SMC is slightly different on each Mac, first we’ll cover resetting the NVRAM which is the same on every Mac model.

NVRAM: For all Mac models with Wi-Fi No Hardware Installed Error
Reboot the Mac and immediately hold down Command + Option + P + R keys together
Continue holding all Command+Option+P+R keys until you hear the Mac reboot sound again, then release all keys concurrently
When the Mac boots back up, pulldown the wi-fi menu again. Is it working? Is the wi-fi menu no longer showing the “X” and “No hardware installed” error message? Is it looking for networks? Then you’re good to go.

Wi-Fi looking for networks means it is working again

If you still have problems and still see that error message, you’ll want to continue on with resetting the SMC which we’ll cover next.

SMC: For newer MacBook, MacBook Pro models with internal batteries
If you have any newer model MacBook with a non-removable battery (basically anything post-2010 model year), this is how you reset the SMC:


 
Shut down the Mac
Connect the MacBook to the MagSafe power cable and an outlet so it is charging
Hold Shift + Control + Option + Power buttons concurrently for about five seconds, then release all keys together
Boot up the Mac as usual
When the Mac boots up you should no longer see the “X” in the wi-fi icon and wi-fi should work as usual on the Mac.

SMC: For older MacBook models with removable batteries
If you can take out the battery on the MacBook yourself, then resetting SMC is a bit different:

Shut down the MacBook and take out the battery
Disconnect the power cable, then hold the Power button for about 5 seconds, then release the button
Connect the battery again and boot up as usual
If the wi-fi works, join wifi as usual and you’re good to go.

SMC: For iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini
Shut down the Mac and disconnect it’s power cable
Press and hold down on the Mac power button for about 5 seconds
Release the power button, re-attach the power cable, and boot the Mac as usual
Wi-fi working now? Great!

Still seeing the “Wi-Fi: no hardware installed” error on the Mac?
If you reset the Mac NVRAM and SMC and you still encounter the “Wi-Fi: no hardware installed” message in the dropdown menu in Mac OS X, you may have a physical hardware problem with the computer in question. Usually this means the network card has failed, has become disconnected, doesn’t exist (as in, it was manually removed), it’s a third party external wi-fi NIC model that needs different drivers, or perhaps even the Mac had liquid contact and has suffered some form of damage. In any event, if it can’t be resolved with the methods outlined above and it’s not a software wi-fi issue, you’ll likely want to make a trip to the Apple genius bar or official call center.

The Problem with Most of My Competitors #InHomeComputerHelpHonolulu  by in home computer, tablet and smart cell phone tutor, mobile virus removal, repair and setup specialist, dual certified teacher, website designer and SEO expert J.

An in home computer client in Mililani Hawaii here on Oahu called me. During the storm last night his computer stopped working and wouldn’t turn on after that. I suspected a bad power supply. When I arrived to troubleshoot the computer the next morning here are the steps I took:


Steps I Took to Troubleshoot The Dead Computer


Over the phone I had instructed my computer client to try an old trick to bring a dead computer back to life. The trick didn’t work, which is why I suspected a bad power supply.


At this point most of my competitors would immediately collect the computer, wait, I take that back, most of my competitors don’t make house and office calls. So if it was anyone else my client would have brought the computer into the computer repair shop. A week later or so the power supply would have been changed out and my client would have received about a $200.00 bill.


I started with the very basics:


I had already told my in home computer support client to unplug the computer
Hold the power button down for one minute
Plug the power cord back into the computer or wall
Push the power button and release as normal to see if the computer will start.


This works almost half the time. It didn’t work with my in home computer support client this time so I took further measures before deciding to change the power supply.


I unplugged the power cord which was plugged in directly to the wall and plugged it into a surge protector which was plugged into a different wall socket. Remember there was a storm so it could have damaged that wall socket.


The computer started but shut down when I slid it under the desk. So I applied another old trick.


I pulled out all the peripheral cables. A peripheral is a device that plugs into the computer such as the printer. I once again pulled the power cable from the computer.


`I held the power button down once again for one minute. My client reported he saw lights flashing on the computer. This was the release of static electricity.


I plugged just the power cord into the computer and attempted a restart with just a normal press of the power button. This time the computer started up.


I plugged everything else in to see if it would stay powered up. It did.


Just in case I quickly wrote a backup program using something called a batch file and backed everything up onto a 32 gig flash drive


Code: [Select]

xcopy “C:\Users\username\*.*” \BackUpHP\ /s/y/i/d/e/c



For anyone using this command the batch file goes on the flash drive. You’ll find exact directions on how to use this command line backup in my downloadable ebook The Big Plain English Computer Cell Phone and Tablet Reference Help and Tips eBook on page 18.


Two Additional Steps I Would Have Made Before Changing The Power Supply


Use a different power cord. They don’t go bad often, but I like to cover all variables.


Unplug the computer from the surge protector and plug it directly into a different wall socket.


A Nice Compliment from My In Home Computer Support Client


He said my steps to troubleshooting computers are logical, meticulous, and I really like this last part, and that I didn’t give up.


I thanked him for the compliment and told him to have me come by in four months for a preventative professional cleaning.


Enjoy your computers, tablets and cell phones
Your friendly neighborhood computer geek and tutor


Rick

Windows emergency patch: Microsoft's new update kills off Intel's Spectre fix
The out-of-band update disabled Intel's mitigation for the Spectre Variant 2 attack, which Microsoft says can cause data loss on top of unexpected reboots.

Richard Kirkham B.Sc. of Honolulu Hawaii covering all of Oahu.

Microsoft has released an emergency Windows update to disable Intel's troublesome microcode fix for the Spectre Variant 2 attack.

Not only was Intel's fix for the Spectre attack causing reboots and stability issues, but Microsoft also found it resulted in the worse scenario of data loss or corruption in some circumstances.

To justify the out-of-band update, Microsoft highlights a comment in Intel's fourth-quarter forward-looking statements that mentions for the first time that mitigation techniques potentially lead to data loss or corruption.

Until then, Intel had only mentioned its update was causing unexpected reboots and unpredictable system behavior.

"Our own experience is that system instability can in some circumstances cause data loss or corruption," Microsoft said.

"We understand that Intel is continuing to investigate the potential impact of the current microcode version and encourage customers to review their guidance on an ongoing basis to inform their decisions," it added.


To prevent the potential for data loss, Microsoft issued an out-of-band update on the weekend that disables Intel's mitigation for CVE-2017-5715, or the Variant 2 Spectre attack described as a "branch target injection vulnerability".

Intel's mitigation for this bug is the main reason it advised customers and hardware makers last week to stop deploying its current microcode.

Dell and HP have since pulled their respective BIOS updates carrying Intel's buggy code, and plan to reissue them once Intel has ironed out the problems.


Microsoft's update that disables Intel's patch is available for Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, and all versions of Windows 10, for client and server. The update can be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog website. The update leaves in place fixes for the other two vulnerabilities that make up Meltdown and Spectre.

Microsoft has also provided an option to manually disable and enable the mitigation for Variant 2 via special registry key settings. Links to the registry setting instructions can be found on Microsoft's support page.

Given that there are no known reports of attacks on Spectre Variant 2, it would seem the greatest risk to systems and data at present is Intel's buggy microcode.

The company is facing scrutiny from US lawmakers over its handling of the embargo, which has been described by some as an utter mess that left important software projects in the dark.

Jonathan Corbet, a member of the Linux Foundation's Technical Advisory Board, said the disclosure process for Meltdown and Spectre was unusually secretive.

While the bugs affect Arm and AMD too, Intel is the only chipmaker whose hardware is vulnerable to all three attacks. Despite facing a heightened risk of lawsuits, investors in Intel don't appear to have been spooked by the bugs.

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said at last week's earning update the company will "restore confidence in data security with customer-first urgency, transparent, and timely communication".

6 Smart Ways to Keep Your Android Phone Hack-Proof by Matt DillonJanuary 9, 2018 shared by by in home computer, tablet and smart cell phone tutor, mobile virus removal, repair and setup specialist, dual certified teacher, website designer and SEO expert J.

With all the recent news of SPECTRE and its potential downfall, you wonder if there’s more you can do to protect your android phone against vulnerabilities.  Spectre was a bug found in most Intel chips.  Apple has come out and said that all their devices are also at risk.  Updates and roll outs are happening as we speak.  We highly recommend you to update.  We look into Android devices and investigate 6 smart ways to help prevent hackers from infiltrating your precious Android phone and stealing passwords, photos, and other private information.

    Stay Up to Date!

        It’s extremely vital to stay up-to-date with the latest firmware.  This is critical because often times bugs will appear, some more dangerous than others, but Android/Google are typically really good at staying on top of this, releasing updates to their firmware on a regular basis.

        Often times, staying up-to-date means you will not be able to jailbreak or “root” your devices.  Because Android is already pretty custom-able, it’s feasible that a “root” or jailbreak is not even necessary to enjoy your device at its full potential.

    Be wary of random installs

        It’s been known that bugs/virus have been able to creep itself into the Google Play Store.  It’s more imperative than ever to stay on top of what you are downloading.  Virus’ have been known to record your data and movements and are sent to various servers, sometimes located in China, which makes this all very suspicious…

    Lost your phone?

        In order to keep your android phone secure, make sure you have a 6 digits key code that lets you lock your device anytime you are not around.  There are also “smart unlock” apps that can keep your phone unlocked based on certain GPS locations.  We would avoid all these apps because while they seem convenient, they open your phone to unnecessary risks.

    Track your phone

        Please make sure you have “Find My Device” hooked up and working at all times.  I’ve personally lost 2 phones because I forgot to turn on Find My Device.  It’s really not fun and can be remedied rather easily if you are able to activate “Find My Device” via Android.

    Use a Password Manager

        It’s super important to have passwords that are hard to guess.  It’s probably just as important to have different passwords for different sites.  The reason for this is because often times when one list of username/passwords are stolen they are often used to brute force into other services.  Essentially, if your LinkedIn got hacked and a username and password were acquired encrypted.  Hackers can essentially use all these username and passwords to try to login, say for example, Facebook and get into your accounts this way.  The harder and more varied your passwords are, the less likely you will get hacked.

    Use encryption

        Apple got into a lot of grief with the FBI when they told the FBI that they did not have access to certain terrorists phones.  This is a direct result of Apple using state of the art encryption that allows for the data to be scrambled until a pin code is entered which then “unscrambles” the data.  With the latest installation of Android, Google has required that all phones keep their data encrypted.  But as of right now, only 2.3% of Android devices are running the latest version.

How I Finally Installed an Old Printer on Windows 10 #FreePrinterSetupTip #InHomePrinterSetupHonolulu by in home computer, tablet and smart cell phone tutor, mobile virus removal, repair and setup specialist, dual certified teacher, website designer and SEO expert J.

This was an old HP laser printer. It did have a USB cord, but was not wireless compatible. I downloaded the universal printer driver from HP. When you download something like this make sure you ALWAYS download from the manufacturer’s website. As one of the best in home computer virus removal specialists on Oahu, I can verify most of the computer viruses come from third party software. Remember, nothing is free. Everyone has to make a living. So if you haven’t bought something from a company previously and that company wants to support you so you’ll buy again, then the third party company has to figure out another way to make money from you.


Even after installing the Universal Printer from HP I couldn’t get the printer to be found by Windows 10.  So finally I went into Control Panel by typing Control into the Cortana search box on the lower left hand side of the desktop.


I click Control which was the first search result


From Control Panel I clicked on Device Manager


I found the USB device that was supposed to have the printer driver in it and it stated no driver! So I right mouse clicked on it for the menu and had it find the driver I had previously installed.


I got the beautiful sound of the laser printer initiating to print held my hands up in the air and shouted, “Cause that’s what I do!” Yes once in a while I let the ADHD out, which gave me the gift of focus and not being able to let go of a problem until I solved it.  My in home and remote computer, tablet and cell phone clients love it.


I had never, since 1993, had to go into the device manager to add an installed printer driver directly to the USB port. Of course the easiest way to take care of your printer setup issues is to just have me do it. I love solving the technology issues that drive most people crazy!

Rick
