  1. Sometimes, as I found out the hard way, updates aren't the answer. My problem started after an update. I have an older whatchacallit that needs the Legacy program to get a connection. Since I dug around the AMD files on their web site once I got over the panic attack, I found the one that works for my computer. Get good pictures, and S L runs smoothly. And Linda Kidd, The one I bought was guaranteed to be a refurbished computer. That's worth the extra $110 USD I paid. It saved me clearing out the old files of the previous owner and bringing it up to snuff afterward. Remember, to me, the computer is a "black box" and I'm well satisfied if the on/off works. -grins-

    What's Wrong

    Since about 1 May 2020, I get a message when I try to log in, "Can't start because you don't have graphics." followed by a list of conditions that could cause that. I'm totally unfamiliar with the insides of a computer, so I tried the one I thought would be likely to solve the problem. Didn't work. My system starts with an HP Compaq Pro 6305 bought as a refurbished used computer with AMD's A6-5400B APU w/ Radeon HD graphics, Radeon HD7540D, and High Definition Audio Device. What's Wrong? if you're willing to offer a possible solution, feel free. I've always been satisfied if the power on / off switch worked, so anything else is beyond my knowledge. I'm sure my problem stems from that. lack., so any possible solution will be welcome, better yet if it IS the solution. -grin- But not all is lost if you don't have a solution. I have a request in to the AMD help desk too.
  3. Thanks. Even though it didn't answer my question about how to set up, I did enjoy some of those clips of actual singers in SL.
  4. I have KaraFun 2 and a logittech headset. With Windows 10 1909. how do I set the computer to sing? If not enough apps already, what more do I need?t
  5. Dean. Never mind. I missed the reminder to sign in. Once I signed in, no problem.
  6. Rolig,, Thanks. That solved the problem. Because they both look the same to me, I never noticed that I just carried over the old one. Once I deleted the old one and loaded the new one, problem solved.
  7. Every time I try to log in, I am instructed to down load and install and Any ideas why ? Additionally, There appears to be confusion since you say my email address is in use by another member. That's likely me from the period after the old computer retired itself and I changed to the mew computer. That computer had a problem that I finally got fixed to get past the message that the video driver wasn't able to match the S L program.
  8. Lillith, got a chuckle from your opening statement. Some days, while I know I'm not as old as dirt, I think I'm older than the hills and valleys. That's easily older than any electronics even in computer years. In fact, I remember when math required paper and pencil, we could read analog clocks, dial rotary phones to talk to friends on an alpha exchange name and needed an operator to make long distance calls. I'm not quite ready to pop for a new black box, so repairing the old one still make sense, budgetwise. As far as picking a good tech, the guy I use has paid rent on a business for about 10+ years. That's remarkable in a town of under 6000 population, I think.
  9. Satisfied with my relationship to a "black box with an on/off switch", I'll opt for letting somebody else who knows what he/she is doing mess with the "guts" of the "infernal confuser " in that black box. I don't want to be the cause of any more damage, or of angering the "debil" inside,. While I may be wrong about the causative nature of a legacy driver (note 1), I'm satisfied it is part of the problem if not the sole cause.. It's a little like a car that won't start because the battery is low. You recharge or replace the battery, and check later for any shorts that caused the battery failure if there is one or more. Note 1: The computer is has been around since Windows 7, and the graphics driver isn't even listed on the manufacturer's list of stored downloads to repair it.
  10. I would try to do it myself in my youth, but, at age 74, it's cheaper and safer to let a semi skilled chimpanzee do it. There are several good human techs in town, though., so one of those is likely to get a bite out of my budget.
  11. I've had trouble downloading the new update for Windows 10 x64.. After about ten tries, Windows help desk thinks I need a clean restart. Part of that requires moving programs and applications to DVD and reloading after the restart is completed. Personal files and data are retained. Does Second Life transfer with personal files, can I claim my account from your files, or do I need to move it to a DVD and reload after the clean restart?
  12. Since the latest update to Windows 10 x64 failed, I can't log in for some reason related to the graphics. I checked, and the Radeon 4300/4500 is now a legacy model, Is that likely to be the cause? Since the current one used to work, is there an update that will straighten out the problem, or is it so old I'd be better off replacing it? While I'm at it, will a new processor/graphics card be hard to put in or do I take it to a computer guy, since up until this event have been happy with my "black box with an on/off switch"?.
  13. I've just heard about RLV, so anybody with a description, what it does, and what I need to make it work answers, please help.
  14. Oz Linden, I logged in for the morning, took a break for lunch. That's when on the attempt to log in again the problem started. By my clock, around 1:30 PM MDT. I tried every step suggested by Rolig Loon. Never got it fixed when I decided to go to sleep instead of fightin' a lost battle to the bitter end. Went to sleep around 9 MDT. Woke the next morning about 4 AM, MDT, tried to log in and did with no fight. It might be connected to that problem mentioned on the Linden Blog site. Does that help despite its tardiness? Addendum: If you need to log in on my account, go ahead. I'm willing if you need to. Just need to know whether I should be logged in or out while you're there.
  15. About how long does the DNS flush take? Granted, I'm anxious to get on, but it seems an awfully long time since I started, a half hour. Never mind. I finally hit enter, and the command given in the Hofstinger Tutorials page is not recognized as z valid command. Got another one?
