    Power outage or update causing print problems?


    On the morning of June 22, there was a power outage in my area. Ever since then, my two PCs cannot find my wireless Brother printer. The WLAN report from my printer shows it is connected to my network, as are the two PCs, yet they can't find each other. I checked for the latest updates, as this once caused me a problem communicating with my printer. However, the latest system update KB5014699 was installed on June 19, and I was able to print that day, as well as the two days after. It wasn't until the power outage on June 22 that I started having this problem. I spent an hour on the phone wi

  2. Power outage caused programs to disappear and/or become disfunctional

    Hello,

    There are few factors that can contribute to the issue you are encountering. Power outages can result in data loss, corruption of folders/files, and programs not functioning.

    To assist you further, kindly provide more details by answering the following questions:

    • Which browser are you using to check the passwords and favorites section? Provide the list of browsers where you encountered the concern.
    • Have you tried using another account to verify if the programs are still missing on your program list?

    There is a possibility that the drive index has been corrupted. We highly suggest that you check your hard drive and scan for errors by following these steps:

    • Open This PC on File Explorer and locate your hard drive.
    • Right-click and choose Properties.
    • Under Tools tab, click on Check Now button.

    After scanning the hard drive, hidden files and folders, as well as lost data can be restored.

    Additionally, we advise running the System File Checker as another way for us to check or scan for data corruptions in Windows system files that can be affected by the power outage. To do so, follow the steps on this article:

    Using System File Checker in Windows 10.


    Let us know of any details pertaining to your concern.

  4. Power outage or update causing print problems?

    Computer Causing Power Outage?

    The bathroom shouldn't be on the same circuit as your bedroom and office. It should using GFCI/RCD on a different breaker all together. If you are not I suggest you get an electrician out there to fix that ASAP. If its true the entire second floor is on one circuit I suggest you move or have it rewired. That's not only poor building but dangerous.

    But I don't expect you to listen to me.

    If you are going to be living where you are right now I suggest you have a dedicated line ran to your computers outlet.
