Pictures Not Appearing In Emails

Dear Computer Lady,

When I receive email with images, the images do not appear, although the box is there for them.

I checked email preferences and HTML is checked and below it says images will be forwarded with HTML. What am I doing wrong?

I read your column in the paper each Friday, and I haven’t seen this problem mentioned.
Thank you, Elinor

When Will Support End For Windows 7?

Dear Computer Lady,

Hi, I want to Thank You for All The Great Information Through The Years. I doubt I would be as Confident When I’m on my PC.

I’m confused as to when MS Windows Version 7 is going to lose Support. I saw an announcement that it was going to be in late 2015. Last Week I saw an ad at a National Office Supply store that had New desktop computers with a Windows 7 desktop with 500 gigs of RAM and 1 Terabyte . I am using XP and I don’t want Windows 8.1.

Can you verify that Windows is going to stop support for Windows 7 ? I was looking to buy the Windows 7 version and install it, But if I can buy a new Windows 7 Desktop,And it will be supported for the next 5-6 years,Then That’s the way to go I think.

I’m 74 and I’m not too keen on learning Windows 8. Any Ideas on my thinking ?

Thank You, Darell Read More…

Using A Printer-Scanner in Windows 8

Dear Computer Lady,

I have a question about scanning on windows 8.

Do you have to download the app like the help program said or can I just go to devices on the control panel.

A friend does that but when I tried , all I got were properties for the printer.

thanks for your help. Sue Read More…

Windows 8 Not Playing AVI Files

Dear Computer Lady,

I have been reading your newsletter for a long time and continue to enjoy and learn from you and many of your readers.

I did not like windows 8.1 at first but after giving it a good try I really like the tiles and the touch screen. I am still learning to navigate it but have found it to be a lot of fun.

I have a question that I hope you can help with. I have several avi. files that play on my windows 7 laptop using Windows Media Player but when I put them on my windows 8.1 Asus conversion tablet they cannot play them even though I use Windows Media Player. I don’t know what I am doing wrong.

Thank you for your newsletter, Mike H in Maine Read More…

Refilling Ink Cartridges

Dear Computer Lady,

I have always had an Hp printer and I recently purchased Hp Officejet Pro 8600.

Imagine my surprise when I went to refill the ink cartridge, you can refill them, but the printer will not recognize that it has been refilled and continuously tells me that the cartridge is empty. I feel that I bought the printer and Hp should not dictate me on what to use for ink.

Is it possible to reset the cartridge chips without having to have 2 or 3 other cartridges to basically trick the printer ?
