  1. Correcting the "Basic Information About Your Computer"


    Hi,


    I was doing some work on the desktops/laptops in my school to clean up network IP addresses. I came to one of my machines, an HP Pro 3500 series desktop, and was going to change the computer name. In the process, I noticed the machine identified itself as a Compaq 500B microtower (another computer type in my building).


    (It may help that an earlier project involved cloning old HDDs onto new SSDs for the machines to run faster, then moving some higher-spec machines - the aforementioned HP - to a computer lab, and moving the lower-spec Compaqs to a classroom)...


    While the name thing may seem like an inconvenience, it seems that the machine is telling me it only has 3.39GB of its 8.00GB RAM usable, and that it is running a 32-bit OS version on an x64-based processor. The Compaq 500B was on 32-bit architecture, and I understand that Windows 10 will only recognize a maximum of 4GB RAM in that setup. But the actual machine (the HP Pro) can and does handle a 64-bit OS and all 8.00 (or 7.89) GB of RAM.


    All this to say - is there a way to update or "refresh" this basic information? I don't want my machine hamstrung in its performance...


    Thanks.

    :)

    Autospell correction not working

    Hello Linda,

    We regret the inconvenience. Let me assist you to resolve the issue.

    Before we proceed further, let us know a few more details on the below questions.
    · Did you make any changes to the computer prior to the issue? Is it an abrupt issue?
    · Do have any System Restore point set in Windows prior to the issue?
    · Did you check if the same issue occurs when you log in to Windows using a different Local Administrator user account?

    By design, Windows 10 will prompt user for Auto correction for misspelled words

    As an initial recommendation, I suggest you to check the settings for the Autocorrect options (if it is set to off).

    Please follow the below simple steps.

    • Click on Start and choose Settings.
    • Select Devices.
    • Choose Typing in the left pane.
    • Set the toggler to on for Auto correct misspelled words.

    Write to us with the updated status and the required information related to Autospell correction in Windows, for us to be able to assist you further.

    Thank you.
