  • It depends how accurate you want your proof to be.  If you're satisfied with "ballpark" accuracy, then you might be able to get away with RGB printing.  When printing CMYK on a press, UCR (Under ...
  • Andrew is correct.  In fact, Windows and Mac OS-X printer driver models only support sending RGB data.  If you try to print CMYK using a standard OS printer driver, the OS/driver will convert the ...
  • Since you have tried restoring a backup from when the computer was working normally, I think that rules out any software or malware issues. It would appear to be a hardware issue. It's very ...
  • Replied in 2 Users?
    User files (Documents, Pictures, Videos, Music, etc.) are stored in the user's folder.  Before you delete the old user account, copy any files that you want from the old user folder to the new ...
  • Replied in Olympus P-10
    The ideal way to solve the problem is to have an ICC profile made for your printer.  To so so, you would need a spectrophotometer and ICC profile generation software.  Alternatively, there are ...
  • Replied in Olympus P-10
    If there is no ICC profile for the P-10, then you're out of luck.  From your initial post, I thought that you had a profile for the printer, but the driver didn't support applying it.  Sorry for ...
  • Replied in Olympus P-10
    Mike, you would go to Edit/Convert to Profile and select the ICC profile for your printer.  The image will probably look strange on the monitor since the image is now in the printer's color space. ...
  • Replied in Olympus P-10
    If the driver has no provision to assign an ICC profile, then you will have to apply the profile in a color management aware application such as Photoshop.  Photoshop will let you "pre-apply" the ...
  • There are tools available on the internet to either determine the password, or to reset it (I'm assuming that the password was set to something that the user doesn't know). Try a search on ...
  • I'm still using my Dell 2209W that I bought shortly after they came out.  It's been a terrific monitor for me, no complaints.  Some of the newer monitors have larger color gamuts, but one of the ...
  • Jim, I agree with you.  I'm on Time Warner and currently, they don't have a cap.  They tried to initiate one years ago but got so many complaints that they backed off.  Like you, I have just the ...
  • Jim, you'll need to create an Acronis boot disk, boot from the Acronis boot disk, and then restore the image.  If you don't already have an Acronis boot disk, go to the Acronis website, download ...
  • It's still not clear to me exactly what you are asking.  However, if you're asking if someone can "break into" your computer when connected wirelessly, the answer is it depends.  If you don't have ...
  • If you want to use a desktop computer that has no wireless adapter with a WiFi router, it's fairly easy.  You need to purchase a wireless adapter.  You can either buy an add-in card, or a USB ...
  • My experience so far with Win10 is that it usually will accept a Win8/8.1 driver.  There is a chance that you may have to turn off driver signing to install the driver, but there is a good chance ...
  • I second the suggestion to download and install the free version of MalwareBytes. MalwareBytes is usually the first thing I run when I get a computer in that has a possible malware problem (after ...
  • I ran into a strange but similar problem recently. I have an old Samsung 830 series 120GB SSD that I was no longer using, so I decided to install Win10 on it to learn a little more about Win10. ...
  • I agree with Austinian.  Although it's unlikely something would go wrong, it's possible that you could clone the SSD to the HD, thereby wiping out the contents of the HD (don't laugh, it's been ...
  • Replied in Duplicates
    I've had good luck with DoubleKiller ( http://www.bigbangenterprises.de/en/doublekiller/ )
  • As Larry mentioned, I would suggest getting a "K" version of whatever i5 or i7 CPU you get.  The K versions have an "unlocked" multiplier, meaning that they can be easily overclocked if you're so ...
