I am worried for my Kobo Arc 10HB. It has developed this weird habit of freezing when I pull down the notification bar. It remains frozen for a while, and then it crashed and shuts down. When I turn it on again, it seems to attempt to open the notification bar, but it ends up freezing again. What could be causing this?

My Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet is 9 months old, and the Power Keyboard is  months old. I have been using the keyboard sporadically, that is, maybe once or twice a week. Recently I cannot seem to be able to use them together. When I plug the keyboard to the table, everything stops responding. The keyboard does not work, the tablet does not work and the screen goes black. What is happening?

Hello, I am thinking of connecting a second monitor to my desktop computer. I have one done so at work, and I use it as an extended desktop and find it great for multitasking. However, my home computer only has one VGA output. Is there a way to connect a second monitor to a computer with only one VGA output?

I am having some problems connecting my Windows Surface 2 tablet with other devices using Bluetooth. Now, the Surface 2 has no issues when establishing a connection, but it cannot seem to maintain it. After it loses the connection, I get a btvstack error message. What could be the problem? How can I attempt to solve it?

I have been using my R.A.T 7 Mouse for a couple of months, but recently it has started behaving weirdly. Sometimes when I use it, the cursor randomly stops. All the clicks and the buttons function as they should, but the cursor seems stuck. I tried to change the power settings in the control panel, and it worked for maybe a week, and now I am back to square one. What could be the problem?

I have heard many wonderful things about the Raspberry Pi, and I was wondering if it could be used in an office setting. We have a very old (very, very old) computer that we use only to write up invoices with Excel and a very short letter with Word. Could we replace it with a Raspberry Pi? Will it be able to perform these tasks consistently?

Hello. Today I noticed that my fan speed was working at a much slower speed than normal. At first I could not hear it as loudly as usual, and then I checked the temperature readings, and the fan was actually running at half speed, and my CPU temperature was rising. I tried to change the fan speed in the BIOS, but it looked like I wasn’t allowed. I don’t understand why this is so, when I usually take the same steps and BIOS allows me to change with no hitch. Could there be a deeper problem than a faulty fan?

My Acer Iconia A1 tablet has gone mute. All of the sudden, with no warnings or weird scratching sounds, the volume was no more. I tried everything I could think of in the settings, but nothing helped. The headphones still work, and when I connected it to my car radio it plays through the AUX cable with no issue. What I would like to know is 1) if there is a way to know if this is a software or hardware problem and 2) if the speakers can be replaced in case it’s their fault.

Hello. I have been having some problems with my Asus Fonepad 7 since the last update. When I connect a set of headphones to the device, they don’t work. I checked, and the Fonepad tells me they are connected, but no sound comes out of them. I tried this with many headphones, even with another pair from Asus, but nothing. What could the issue be?

I am having problems with my monitor (Acer S240HLBID), attached to an HP Pavilion with Windows 7. Yesterday I tweaked with the settings a bit (mainly changed the resolution and luminosity), and the screen went black with an error message stating “input not supported” appearing almost immediately. I turned the computer off using another monitor, and then tried to use my Acer monitor. It won’t work and the error message appeared again. What could the problem be?
