  • Totally agree, which I why I suggested the OP try Flints. At least they could give him a ball park figure. But the bottom line is that it's worth whatever one punter is willing to pay...no more, no ...
  • Very lucky! 😁
  • I noticed you said you "found" it. Care to share how that happened. Sounds an interesting and lucky story.
  • They have an auction coming up 29 Feb but you may be too late for that. The one on 21 May "Fine Photographia" may be better suited for your camera. HTH Dave
  • Why this is causing so much debate is beyond me. Just listen to what drynn writes above which make complete sense. Assuming no change in devices (hence their resistance) then their current ...
  • I have bought and sold through Flints and find them very professional, without being stuffy.  I'd certainly give them a call. All auction houses take what may seem like a large cut but they have ...
  • Dave, I see you are Gloucestershire based which is not a million miles away from the SAS regiment HQ. So I did a quick search but all I could come up with was this... During the 1970s or Army ...

    Yes I am aware of how the price of SSDs has dropped up to the 2TB level. I have bought several recently. But my point Chris was that with 18TB of storage it wasn't practical or affordable for me to ...
  • Well if you want a computer challenge then you might consider doing what I did a few years ago. I found a “for spares or repair” Acorn RISC PC600. Got it working and learned the RISC OS way of ...

    Hi Jahn, Let me add to the conversation about storage and backup strategies. I believe the choice of how to store and backup depends on how much, what type and the importance of the data stored ...
  • That will depend on many things but...in general it should be possible to add a discrete GPU later on if... The pc has a PCIe slot (best a x16 slot) and the power supply is capable of running the ...
  • Actually, as you can see below the method described in the How To Geek article works fine. Once again the result that the OP gets as in his last post seems different from what would be expected and ...
  • I'm the same. I can't remember the last time I got any spam from Gmail, whether it was anything that got through to my inbox  or the junk mail folder. I get a few daily into the junk mail folder of ...
  • No, that really doesn't tell us much, although it shows nothing bad there. Looks like he installed 2 x 16GB ram sticks which was the right thing to do. But as mentioned before the type of ram can ...
  • My experience is contrary to Bob's. As I wrote previously in this forum I had to replace a motherboard and despite choosing the exact same model of Mobo Windows 10 failed to activate and (long ...
  • Yes I had a similar experience. I had upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10 (free as offered legitimately by Microsoft) but had a motherboard disaster so replaced it. Same model etc but obviously ...
  • Jan, Nothing you mention here seems to need a top end PC.  Except I would also love to find a one click dust spot removal tool! There may be some in the cloud that I am unaware of. But if you want ...
  • That's just what I'm thinking.
  • Perhaps to help some of us to help you more could you tell us: Did your tech add to the ram or did he completely replace the ram sticks? If the second case then did he fit 4x8 GB or 2x16 GB? How ...
  • Well it seems that all hell let lose immediately after the ram was upgraded. So before reinstalling Windows or anything, I’d check out that ram. I am not a Dell expert but I have read elsewhere ...
