Did it happen across all applications e.g. Word, email etc.

Perhaps just a glitch and your on/off by removing and refitting the battery has sorted it.

Barryd charges £99:99 for on/off advice, so you may have saved yourself a few bob.

Just to eliminate W7 from the equation I was on W7 Pro until yesterday and no problems. It is being supported till mid-Jan, but we had W10 loaded yesterday.


I was a bit nervous after the problems with W8 and never loaded it, nor W8.1 which I thought might have just been a patched version of W8



So far W10 seems good and you will have to change soon or lose support.

If it happens again maybe try an external USB keyboard, might at least tell you if its a fault in the laptops keyboard or not.

I did not want to change, but bit the bullet and so far I have been pleasantly surprised that the transition seems seamless [soryy for pun].


Only difference is style and position of some icons etc.

While we are on about computers. Is anyone getting the message after they press "post" that it is a duplicate of one posted a few minutes ago? Happened a few times now.
