    Very slow PC

    Yes, downloading Windows is perfectly ok, and I would encourage getting it only from Microsoft's site. If the current PC/laptop already has a valid version of Windows 10, you will be fine as long as you pick the same version (Home, Pro, etc.). You just skip the bit where it asks at the start...

    Very slow PC

    Did you choose the option to "Keep my files" or similar? To be honest, I am not sure what this 'reset' does, but I suspect that it isn't a complete new installation of Windows, in which case it won't really get much better. As another user mentioned, the easiest way is to download Windows 10...

    Very slow PC

    I should add that, when installing Windows 10, you may be prompted to enter a licence number, but, you can skip this step. I cannot remember the wording, and I don't think it makes it obvious, but, trust me, you can!

    Very slow PC

    We are here to help. Firstly, 3 - 4 years old :) That is a lot of Windows and other software updates. Windows also likes to leave old crap lying around. Anyway, for the record, installing a new SSD is very simple. You take out the old HDD and replace it with the new SSD. You can easily make do...

    Snowboard rack in plasterboard

    Unfortunately, it is one bracket, with the screw holes 8 cm apart. I have located the stud, and it is not in the centre of the wall anyway.

    Snowboard rack in plasterboard

    Thanks guys. I guess, the advantage of the plastic toggles is that I already have them, the advantage of the self-drilling ones is that they are removable. Decisions, decisions...

    Snowboard rack in plasterboard

    I have purchased a snowboard rack that takes 2 boards, using 4 screws. My boards weigh about 3 KG each. The wall I wish to attach them to is hollow, between the lounge and the bathroom. However, I live in rented accommodation, so I wish to make minimal wall damage, such that, when I leave, I...

    Reformat hard drive on dell computer

    Hopefully, you got this sorted. Personally, I would suggest the virtual machine route, depending upon the spec of the host laptop and the frequency with which you need to run the software. There are also options to run old software in compatibility mode, but I have never had much luck with that.

    Very slow PC

    This question was posted a few weeks ago, without a response from the poster since the day it was posted. That said, when I 'fix' people's laptops/PC's etc, I generally just reinstall Windows. That takes it back to being better than new, as it gets rid of the usually crappy anti-virus software...

    Cutting bathroom flat-pack cabinet for shelf

    Thanks for that. I think I will cut before assembly, at least the sides. I may just assemble it with parcel tape and put in my desired location, just to get a better idea, before actually doing anything destructive. Thanks guys.

    Cutting bathroom flat-pack cabinet for shelf

    The 'shelf' starts at the pedestal then goes all the way to one corner. The unit is designed to fit under the sink, so, there isn't enough room to lift the whole unit to the same height as the shelf. I think the only option is to cut the back of the unit so that the shelf becomes the support.

    Cutting bathroom flat-pack cabinet for shelf

    That is what I was wondering about, whether to assemble, then cut, or vice-versa. This is the unit I am looking at.

    Cutting bathroom flat-pack cabinet for shelf

    I am planning to purchase an under-sink bathroom cabinet, that already has a cut-out for the pedestal. The usual flat-pack thing! However, in my bathroom (rented flat), there is a small tiled shelf on the floor, at the back, 16cm high by 9cm wide, which is protecting pipes I imagine. So, I am...
