    so I had a similar issue, look at the exact pcode. usually with some sleuthing you can determine if its upstream or downstream. if its upstream you may have gotten a defective o2 sensor. if its downstream you could have a leak between the sensors or a defective sensor or if the resistance tests on the sensors show they are likely ok, the wires may be bad, which unless your ready to run new wires to the ECM your probably best junking.

    A new wing mount would mean the B-52 could carry the Mother of All Bombs, or a lot of smaller ones.

    the b-52’s are window dressing. 6 b-52’s carry 20 tomahawks =120. 1 of the converted boomers, from nuke to conventional holds 120 by its self. thus the only real reason for the b-52 would be to deliver moab, daisy cutters or bunker busters after a take down of the entire defensive missile capability of Iran. That would be total war, not going to happen.

    you need to talk first to neuro-physiologist neuro-biologists and neurologists about the structural brain damage the screens do to the developing brain. look up silicon valley’s billionaires and their refusal to allow their kids access to the “screens”. Once you read the stuff in the public domain you’ll be able to zero in on who to talk to. Good luck.

    the report was released weeks ago, I have the pdf. What we’re waiting on is the CT fed prosecutor investigation, which is due in the next month or so. The IG report is the one where Horowitz said no one confessed to political bias so he couldn’t say if there was any, then Barr and Durham came out and said the disagree with some of the conclusions.

    these days there are petitions on the OS drive that lets you reinstall the OS from the preboot environment, unfortunately you’ll still get all the bloatware back. your best bet is to make a microsoft ID. from there you can download the win10 installers. There is a piece of software “windows creator” if I remember, that you use to make a bootable win10 install usb stick. I’d suggest having separate copies of the video card and wifi drivers just in case. Once you have the boot stick the reinstall should be easy. I use a program drivereasy to find and download updated drivers. BTW the usb stick should be at least 16gb, but your better off with at least a 32gb stick. once your new system is setup as you like, you can use it to make an emergency reinstall stick from with in windows.

    the iranians can’t do crap to a flattop. we tried to sink one in 2005 and failed. they have worms, but they won’t be a real threat. understand the next round will entail taking out iranian military sites, oil refineries, and then critical infrastructure. The other possibility is partitioning iraqi and iranian kurdish areas (eventually syrian and turkish as well) into a greater kurdistan. We live in interesting times, 2 fer, no Iranian oil hurts china the most.

  • Does Whole-Language (vs. Phonics) Reading Oedagogy Cause Dyslexia,

    dyslexia is a physical neurological syndrome. the impairment it causes is mitigated or exacerbated by how language is taught. (brain tissue analysis have shown islands of cortical tissue in grey matter) Its been obvious for years that the left has been dumbing the great unwashed for their advantage. (socialist take over of the USA and globe, keeping others from jobs they want for their kids etc) The common core extension is just now entering college and is acknowledged as the least prepared generation ever. per the lefts interpretation of Animal House “fat drunk and stupid is the way to go through life”

    actually the command economy has finally caught up with them. Look at the chicom export numbers and admitted loss of over 3 million jobs in the last year. Then factor in their 320%ish debt to gdp ratio and rising labor costs and what you see is a country struggling to keep it together. If you need further actual proof look at the dry tonnage numbers leaving from china, both in total tons and price.

    They are starting to scale back the silk road initiative, slow blue water naval ship construction and are seeing push back from all their neighbors. If they were confident Hong Kong would have been over months ago. Their reckless over confidence has produced a similar effect to OPEC’s reckless overconfidence. We now have a company “mining” lithium from recovered fracking fluid. China doesn’t innovate they steal. They don’t count on USA reactions and innovations to counter their stupidity.

    Microsoft removed 2007’s Diagnostic Tool in Office 2010, but you can still run an Office repair. Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features, right-click on Microsoft Office 2010, and select Change.

    Hope it works.

    a few thoughts
    your system likely has a bios level hardware checker, run it to make sure you don’t have a memory or cpu issue.

    post the blue screen code and associated text, you’ll need a pad and pen to write it down.

    update all your drivers, I use drivereasy,

    There have been reports of issues with some systems likely yours is on the list. If all else fails you’ll need to get your data off and use HP’s restore to factory new (again a bios level thing.

    One thing to try is use the task manager to kill processes, and stop start up programs. I’d kill as many as possible (all non microsoft or AMD) Kill the start up items, reboot, kill the processes, then try using internet explorer, you’ll find it in windows accessories in the programs list. since IE is the same program used to search your computer it should be ok.

    the task manager is accessed using ctr alt del

    first update everything you can. go to the router and plug in with a ethernet wire. Assuming you get an internet connection update everything. then rt click the windows key scroll to the device manager. click on show hidden devices. any non Microsoft devices under each tab that are greyed out uninstall, but leave the device driver/software. do not reboot the system while uninstalling. Once all that is done uninstall all apps you won’t be using, just be careful, some of them may be related to devices on the laptop. once you’ve cleaned out everything, download ccleaner install and get the crap files off the system (free). Now reboot
    see if it connects, if not download driver easy (easeware) free update all the drivers manually, look for the setup information file in the folder it opens for you.

    Since its a dell many of the dell drivers can be gotten off the site, but they likely won’t be the latest. they do have a maintenance program that will do a hardware scan. if all else fails, make a bootable usb stick to install win10 and reformat and replace everything. if that does not work try a sledgehammer.

  • Urgent consultations in Washington, Moscow on reported US-Russian submarines in firefight

    so from other reporting, the russkies have a deep sea submersible that caught fire July 1 killing 14. Its generally launched from a mother sub for special ops, intelligence missions. My guess is pence was recalled because the Russians can't get to the submersible (crush depth over 6000 feet) to see if any one is left alive or if the nuke reactor is a problem. One thing we do know is the Russians likely don't know when we're stalking them so a first strike is out.

    hp is not a browser, the question was what program were you using to access freerepublic and what extensions were you using. there are some new extensions that claim to warn about fake news. Most are obviously anticonservative leftist crap out of big tech, and you will need to shut them off.

  • Please pray for my brother-in-law, Bill. 63 years old, he is having seizures -- out of the blue.

    ok so
    any noticeable difference in sensation, tingling, eye sight.
    any muscle drooping, peripheral neuropathy.
    any small change (or large) in personality, easier/harder to laugh, show emotion.
    change in balance
    underlying conditions. Heart, liver, renal(kidney function), cancer, RA vs OA (ostio arthritis would be normal RA could be an issue)

    what are the specific physical manifestations. a lot can be learned from the specific way the brain storm disrupts normal functions, for instance unconsciousness, lack of urinary, bowl control, ticks.

    He’ll likely be hesitant to discuss the more unpleasant issues, but those are the ones that need to be ruled out.

    At 63 to suddenly experience seizures is unlikely unless there is a tumor. So the first question is W the FK has been going on for years that your hiding.
    My prayers are for your bro and you, but I’d rather figure out whats going on to maximize his happiness.

  • Can A Smart TV Go Dumb ?

    unplug the tv, push and hold the power button for 10-15 sec. wait a few min 2-5 plug back in and see if the bios cleared. if it did it will act like the first time you plugged it in. Otherwise google your tv and look for hard reset. If all else fails can you plug it into your home network with a ethernet cable, and use that to update the wifi? Lastly look up the firmware version on the TV and see if there is an update, usually you can update with a usbstick. If everything else fails turn off all the other wifi devices reset the password and security settings to the previous settings and see if the tv connects. I just had my computer lose its wifi adapter, not in the hard ware list. reboots did nothing. had to do a hard reset before the adapter could even be seen by the system. TV’s are just limited link computers.
