Post How to set up a new PC
Buying a new computer is always an exciting event. First you decide which car you need, then choose among the hundreds of models on the market that will satisfy all your desires, then run around the shops, ask the price and choose the most favorable offer or order a new toy in the online market. After you got what you wanted, it remains only to carefully open the package and bring it into the light of God, his new friend. What will be the next step? Naturally, you will want to see what your new friend is capable of. Of course, I can’t wait to check everything at once. Having spent a little time on high-quality setup of a new PC, later you will save your time, nerves and get a guarantee of its stable and long work.

Step one:

Determine what data you need to copy data from the old PC.

You probably have an old computer (it’s assumed that you bought a new PC) that stores your whole life - from business documents to personal correspondence, from browser bookmarks to your favorite movies and music. And therefore, the first thing you should start creating a convenient machine with is copying data to transfer it to a new computer. I think no one will doubt that this step is necessary.
Easy transfer
- A specialized utility for software migration. In principle, many may find it quite enough. However, in some cases, you may not transfer everything you want. This is a good program if you plan to transfer only your data from files from the old computer to the new one - files, folders, electronic correspondence, user accounts and program settings.

An additional solution would be to purchase an external USB hard drive (of course, if there is a need to often transfer files). It is better to create a folder on the external drive and copy everything to one place.

The next step is to launch a web browser, go to "Settings" - "Import and Export", there select the option "Export bookmarks", give a name to the created file and copy it to an external hard drive. Another thing is if you use a plugin like Xmarks (works with Firefox, Internet Explorer and the Mac version of Safari). Using it, you can synchronize and back up your bookmarks and browser passwords from another computer.
By the way, all the above procedures will allow you not only to transfer useful data, but also help to clean the computer of excess junk, which inevitably accumulates. If you discover something that you have not been using for at least a year, mercilessly leave it in the same place and do not transfer it to a new PC. After everything important is copied and sorted on an external hard drive, you can turn off the old computer forever. Naturally, the technology is imperfect, and therefore the time that you spend on copying data can stretch for several days. Remember that this is in your own interests, and therefore sort it out without rushing, so as not to experience a cruel sense of irretrievable loss later.

First, connect to the internet. Go to Start > Settings > Network & Internet, and choose how you want to connect (Wi-Fi, dial-up, mobile hotspot and so on). If you have a touchscreen PC, use a long tap (analogous to a right-click) on the networking icon in the system tray in the lower right of the screen.

Next, check for Windows updates. Go to Start > Settings > Update & Security, and under Windows Update, click Check for updates.

Even though your machine is new, Microsoft continually updates Windows to patch security issues and make the machines run better, so you want to make sure you're using the latest version before doing anything else. Depending on how many updates there are, this could take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or so. This may require one or more restarts, so just stick with it.

Once you're running the latest version of Windows, you'll want to install antivirus protection. Your PC or laptop may have come with a trial version of McAfee, Norton or another antivirus software that you can use (here are the best antivirus options for Windows 10). You can choose to purchase another version too.

Really the best thing to do is remove those preloaded security apps right away. They can be system hogs and nagware, always nagging you to upgrade or resubscribe. Here's the Norton removal tool, and here's the McAfee one. You'll get better results removing with these than trying to do it yourself.

If you don't have a specific reason to be concerned (like you're a nuclear scientist or travel regularly to China or Russia) you can rely on Microsoft's Windows Defender Antivirus software that's already built-in with Windows 10 and turned on by default -- no need to set anything up.

Next, you'll want to uninstall bloatware -- the trial versions of software you don't want or need that come preinstalled in most PCs, also known as crapware or junkware. The easiest ways to do that are by downloading uninstallers like PC Decrapifier and Should I Remove It. You can also do this manually, by going to Start > Settings > Apps. You can see the full list of apps on your computer, click any you don't want, and hit Uninstall. Watch for any app or service shortcuts preinstalled on the home screen. Those companies usually paid your PC maker to put their icons there, right in front of your face.

After that, add a password, if you weren't prompted to do so already. Go to Start > Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, and click Password > Add.

Then, you can set up Windows Hello to unlock your device with your face and/or fingerprint if your laptop has a scanner. Go to Start > Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, and click Windows Hello Face, or Windows Hello Fingerprint. You'll follow the prompts and use your computer's built-in webcam or fingerprint scanner to set this up for faster and easier sign-in. You'll need an infrared camera to use facial recognition.


I hope this information will be helpful!

Hi,

Laptop is a Samsung R510 running Vista.

When it is switched on, it gets stuck on the Samsung BIOS load screen. The F2 (Setup) and F4 (Recovery) buttons don't work unless they are pressed straight away. But when they are pressed it says 'Please Wait', but nothing happens.

I have changed the CMOS battery, but it hasn't helped.

I have also taken the hard drive out and turned it on, still the same. Each RAM stick has been tried on its own, and it is still the same.

Can anyone help?

Good afternoon. I have been working on a computer for a long time, and I want to inform you that for someone it is a means of communication, for someone games, applications, and so on. This is work for me. In order for my work to be effective and bring me results, I constantly follow the latest in computer technology. To buy what I need, I use computer deals to select the most suitable option.
