Laptop Cable?/Printer

by GC189 / December 14, 2008 6:21 AM PST

Hello, I'm very un technology and I need some help
1st: I recently bought a Dell Insiron 1525 and am wondering if there is a way for me to hook it up to cable television without a TV?

2nd:Can someone tell me a good printer to buy for under 100bucks, it doesn't have to do anything special, it just can't be a Dell, because i have had some bad experiences with them.

Some answers:

1: Yes, look into TV tuner cards. I'll just say now that you might not be all that happy with the results.

2: Check the site and sooner or later you're bound to see something like a Samsung ML-2010 laser printer show up for about $50. Inkjet printers are a ripoff IMO. The hardware is crap, and they gouge you like crazy for the ink carts. A toner cart for one of those Samsung laser printers will only be $10-15 more, and it's good for around 5,000 pages... As opposed to maybe 50-100 for an inkjet. You can't beat laser printers on price per page.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
