  • New Computer

    Lonicera @Lonicera Besthorpe updated 7 months ago

    Lately get message no signal and also screen shows colours flicking and I have to turn off and reload. Is it time to get a new computer?
    Just had a look at Dell (bought all my computers from there) Looking for an all-in-one. They have one on offer at the moment, which looks to me very cheap. Next step up is nearly £1000.00

    Copied from Dell8th Generation Intel® Core™ i3-8145U Processor (4MB Cache, up to 3.9 GHz)
    Windows 10 Home 64bit Multi-Language, English, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Spanish
    Intel® UHD Graphics 620 with shared graphics memory
    8 GB, 1 x 8 GB, DDR4, 2666 MHz
    1TB 5400 rpm 2.5" SATA Hard Drive
    Ports & Slots

    These figures do not mean anything to me.

    I only use computer for normal activities and some card games.
    I have got a portable camera and printer.

    For any advise I would be grateful. Thank you
