    According to Google, if you send an email to 1234567890 @ txt.bell.ca it should go to the phone at that number. Substitute the real phone number (like yours) for 1234567890. If that works, then...

    What did not work when you tried to send a text to a phone number from an email?

    What provider were you trying to send the text to?

    Actually, an email alias system would probably work. Most cellular providers have a way to email a text message to a device. It is usually by sending the message to 1234567890@provider.domain so...

    So that image is for the hard drive from the old system that is dead? That would be a standard 3.5 inch drive type of SATA connector. The longer connector is for the power and the shorter one is...

    Thanks, fink. That has some very useful information.

    Both systems use SATA drives according to the specs that I have seen, so you should be able to plug the drive from the old system into the new system and access the data, as long as you have a SATA...

    There are still several possibilities.

    Have you verified that the power strip or outlet that you are using has good power, or have you tried a different power outlet and/or power strip (is you are...

    If memtest passed, I would try a different power supply. If that does not fix it, then you likely have a motherboard issue.

    A better solution would be to add an Exclude rule (if possible) to File Hamster so that it does not backup the Delete.mbx file. They do not seem to have any available information to non-registered...

    Actually, it may not be that easy. If File Hamster is doing what I suspect, there are multiple Delete.mbx files in multiple folders.

    Post the COMPLETE PATH to a sample Delete.mbx file that you...

    That sounds like either a memory or a motherboard issue. It is possible it could also be a CPU issue, but that is less likely. If you have some spare memory of the correct type, or if you have more...

    That would tend to indicate the laptop display panel as the culprit. Do the black spots always remain in the same places on the screen, or do they move around? If they are always in the same...

    And you get the same black spots, in the same locations on the Windows desktop?

    That is either a monitor or a video adapter issue. To rule out the video adapter, connect an external monitor to...

    So, does the computer boot and run OK? That was not clear from the posts so far. Note that I cannot access that image file from a work computer, so I will have to check it later today after work. ...

    OK, so that is not the SFF version or the regular tower version, it is the mid sized version. It would have the smaller power supply with the strange extension. Those are available, however, most...

    There were 3 case sizes for the Optiplex 980 system, a standard tower size, a mini-tower size, and an SFF (Small Form Factor) size. Which one do you have? If you have a full-size, 5.25" bay on the...

    There is also a free version of WPS Office. That is a clone of Microsoft Office. There is also a paid version (lifetime license) for $80.

    Post the service tag number of that Optiplex 980.

    The problem is not Thunderbird or gmail, it is the iCloud email system marking your mail as spam. Many email systems do that to messages with a lot of recipients, without actually checking to see if...

    A few years ago, CenturyLink pushed out an untested "update" to all of their data centers nationwide. It took down their entire network, and even their techs could not get in to fix it.
