We just got a Dell Dimension 2300 Desk top computer. When I boot it up there is a message that comes up stating " Auto Detect (analog input)" How can I fix this? When the computer boots I can hear the fan start up but not much else. Please help I am trying to fix this computer and need help badly, I am not really that good at the inside parts of a computer.

Groove Music is blocking playback of MP3's for some copyright holders

Windows 8

This is really weird: Why in the world does Groove Music App block some music tracks held by the copyright holder through some sort of legal mumbo jumbo agreement between Microsoft's Groove Music service and the copyright holder. This is ridiculous. If the user of their PC running Groove Music App want to play their MP3's from their local drive, there is no reason why Groove Music should block playback. For example, I wanted to play a couple of popular oldies tunes by Roy Orbison and I got a message on Groove Music App that there is an agreement with the copyright holder that does not allow playback of these tunes. Absolutely ridiculous. I won't be using Groove Music App to play my MP3's on my local drive. Totally useless music app for my needs. Thanks Windows 10...NOT!

DLink DNS-320 NAS looses connection during write

Windows 8

Hello, I have been using a Dlink DNS-320 as a NAS storage for several years without trouble. It is configured with 2 drives in RAID 1 configuration. It reports the drives work as expected (when connecting to it via its IP address in a browser). The update to Windows 10 did not change anything to connectivity, everything used to work well. But recently (maybe after a Windows update?) it started to have problems. I can read its content, stream media, etc, without problems. But when triting to it (typically photo folders being transfered for storage) it often (not always) looses connection during or at the beginning of the writing process.. I am under the impression that larger numbers of files are more likely to fail. This occurs whether I am using File explorer, a program such as Lightroom, even a file explorer on my Android devices via wifi. When it occurs (and that is most of the time) the NAS becomes unavailable, I cannot browse files on it, read files, Widnows reports it as missing and recommends I check my connection. Waiting a short while brings it back on, and I can try again. If a transfer is successful, the next one will always fail. Meanwhile, I can access the NAS via a web browser without problem. I have tested two routers and that didn't change anything. What is going on?

Windows 10 not recognizing existing homegroup

Windows 8

I have a new laptop which is running Windows 10. I already have a PC, 2 other laptops and 2 printers operating on a Homegroup. Even though my new laptop is connecting to the internet via the wireless router, it is not seeing the existing Homegroup. I ran the troubleshooting but it found nothing and no Homegroup. The new laptop can not be seen by the other computers either. I have checked that the following services are running as instructed in an earlier post: DNS Homegroup Listener Homegroup Provider Peer Networking Grouping SSDP Discovery UPnP Device Nothing has worked. At this point, the new laptop is useless if I can't print or share information.

Xbox App on Windows 10

Windows 8

For the past 2 days now I have been getting this error "Teredo adress: Not obtained" on my Xbox Live app on Windows 10. I have looked up plenty of ways to fix this but none of them have worked. I have tried uninstalling the Teredo files in device manager and re-installed them, I have fiddled with the command prompt and much more. Any information/tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
