  1. My computer is broken


    I tried the "notepad trick" to get rid of the activate windows watermark, and after doing it, my PC is completely broken, it cannot automatically repair itself, it will not start in safe mode, I am now not even currently able to activate safe mode, I cannot reach the sign in screen, I attempted to reset windows, but everything is still broken, I have tried everything I can think of. I have no recovery points or image thingamajigs to restore from, but I know exactly what got me there. I opened notepad, made a blank file, copy and pasted this into it. @Echo offtaskkill /F /IM explorer.exeexplore

    Is my graphics card broken?

    UPDATE: Please see here.

    I have a Sapphire HD 4830.

    When I boot into XP all is initially fine and I am able to see the desktop.

    However, when I click on the start bar and navigate a few steps, I receive an immediate white screen of death and a total irrecoverable lock-up.

    I am confused about what this could mean and I would be grateful for any suggestions on the best course of action to test and repair the problem.

    Does this sort of issue suggest that the graphics card is irretrievably broken?

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. My computer is broken :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)

    Does this computer build have compatibility problems? Opinions welcomed!

    Lets start with what you're going to use this computer for, not what you want to put in it.

    Rules/steps to building a computer (in chronological order):
    First rule: Determine what your needs are.
    Second rule: Define your budget.
    Third rule: Pick parts.
    Fourth rule: Review parts several times.
    Fifth rule: Buy said parts.
    Sixth rule: Build it.

    You are on rule/step 1. Go through the list until you're done.
