comment I had a western digital nas but it has died. How can I get the contents off of it?
Depends on the material you have. If you have a SATA connector, open the case and connect the drives to your computer.

comment Router IP does not appear on network
When you work in client environments, it's often enough to assign auto channel for your wifi. Use an application like inssider to monitor wifi activity near you (or pingtools on android).

comment Router IP does not appear on network
Have you set the router's ip configuration manually (best to do so). If not, it might have a default static address that's not in the same range the DHCP server is leasing addresses.

comment A variety of PC problems including blue screens and failure to boot
We've seen this behavior before, even though it worked for a small period of time. Check if you can upgrade your BIOS (should be possible from a bootable USB).

comment Changing color of value fields in Word
@bibadia: I tagged MS Word, but someone edited my tags. I'll try to add the tag, good feedback. About the post, changing the placeholder text works, so the template "looks" fine. When someone selects the template and enters a value in the placeholder (authorname), the color switches again (from blue to orange in this case). I need to change the color of the value of the placeholder. When going to design view and changing the color, after pressing apply, it seems to work. Going back to it I see it didn't "save" the change, it reverts everytime.

comment Notebook with windows 7 can't connect to Wireless on certain hours
If you're using a 2.4 GHz signal try changing the channel on the device that emits the WiFi (choose between 1,6,12). So if you're signal sends on channel 6, try putting it on 12 (most default values are 1 or 6, maybe depending on country). You could also use a tool called inSSIDer to see what signals are causing any interference.

comment How to restore my bookmarks in windows 8? I deleted my user account
There's actually 2 ways to log into google: you can log into your browser using your google account or you can use the browser to log on to your google account. The one you need is the one you log into your browser: top right, go to settings, there you will see the option to log in. If you have set the options like you mentioned before (what Sathya is saying), this must work. Even switching between different accounts loads the bookmarks after a few seconds delay. Are you sure you had your bookmarks linked in google chrome while you were logged in?

comment Some keys toggle other keys on my laptop
It would be nice to see what's wrong with a question if people downvote, so I can either adjust it or keep the feedback in mind for future problems.

@DaveRook: taking over the computer remotely gives the same problem. I don't think phyical keyboard can give that problem.

@DaveRook: opposed to what I stated earlier, it's a notebook (it's not physically present here), so it's not that easy to just change keyboards.

The computer is used by a basic user (practically mouse only). No tools are installed, shortcuts are not used.

@Psycogeek: Also, a stuck key would mean I get the problem after a reboot, which isn't the case. It works fine after a reboot for a while.
