Ask Dr. Z: Why is my laptop so hot?

Ann in Pompton Plains   Hello Ann, first things first, you must be […]

Ask Dr. Z: Is Microsoft Calling Me?

Dr Z, I was called by a strange number yesterday that told me they were from Microsoft and my computer was infected with viruses. They said my computer was sending messages to the Microsoft office, and I could pay them to fix it remotely. It made sense because my computer has been acting funny, but something didn’t seem quite right. I told them I would call them back, but I’m not sure. What do you […]

Ask Dr. Z: Hinge repair isn’t that important, right?

Dear Dr. Z, The hinge on my laptop is broken, and my Boyfriend keeps begging me to get it fixed. Right now, I feel like I have more pressing needs. When I use it, I prop the Laptop against a book and it’s been working fine. Honestly, I’m wondering if I ever need to get it fixed because it’s just a silly cosmetic issue. It’s not like my motherboard or screen is in danger. I […]

Ask Dr. Z: Help me recover deleted files!

Dear Dr. Z, I made a dumb mistake. My hard drive is almost to the max, so I cleared out my recycle bin. I realized though that a file I really needed was still in there. I thought I deleted a previous draft of it, but in fact the file was the final version. I put so much work into it, it would stink to have to do it again. Is there any way I […]
