All kinds of techie stuff
Yesterday I spent most of the day indoors as I was doing a lot of techie stuff, not all my activities were successful though, but I made some progress.
I am listing my activities, for future reference, which I think is a great use for this site as well.
List of Activites 08/02/14
- Connect old Cannon Scanner N670U to a Windows 8 computer.
It turns our Canon doesn't have the drivers for Win 8 and the only way to make it work is by purchasing a 3rd Party Software.
- Connect HP Deskjet D1660 Printer to PC to Linux Mint Laptop.
It worked like a charm, it was just plug and play, since I had already installed the HPLIP utility, it took only a minute or so. Need to buy ink.
- Test Tethered USB Internet Connection with Android Phone.
It worked with Linux Mint but not with Windows 8 o XP.
- Fix old Desktop computer running Win XP.
It was getting stuck during the boot up sequence. The issue turned out to be the RAM memory was installed on the wrong slot. It is now working but this particular computer has only 512 MB, so it is very slow.
- Test Microsof Remote Desktop App for Android.
I was able to connect to a laptop running Windows-XP from an Android Tablet, but not to the one running Win 8. Still work in progress.
End of List
As you can see I can have my own computer repair shop
How did you spend your Saturday?
