    Airtel will deactivate my SIM by 2nd Oct unless I change to new 4G SIM

    I actually got this SIM exchange done a few days ago without an Aadhaar. Just gave them the old sim, the dude put it inside some basic dual SIM phone along with the new 4G capable SIM. Handed me the new SIM a minute later saying it would start working in an hour. Didn't pay anything nor...

    Reliance Jio Rollout

    Same here. Don't get more than 1.1 to 1.4 mpbs during day time (more like 7 AM to 10 PM or 11 PM at night). And this is outside the house in the open. OTOH, downloaded a 1.2 GB MIUI ROM at 5.30 AM and hit 20 mpbs consistently inside the house. Download completed in about 10 minutes.

    Budget 5-10K Redmi Note 4 from Gearbest

    Why not go for the Note 3? Judging by the specs, Note 4 seems more like an incremental upgrade.

    Demonetisation and its Aftermath

    While I still support the demonetization move, am deeply disappointed at the introduction of new 500 and 2000 rs. notes. No longer feel 100% convinced about the whole thing. I wholeheartedly agree this has been managed absolutely terribly. The government's actions are reactionary rather than...

    Demonetisation and its Aftermath

    No matter when it was done, some level of problems would have been inevitable simply because of the nature of the change. I remember my father recounting a tale of how a similar number was done on 1000 rs. notes back in the late 70s or 80s and there wasn't enough time for most people to even...

    How Sensible is this Slogan "Do not encourage Chinese products from now on"

    I feel it's beyond stupid! I'm not calling out any person but rather find laughable the very idea of something like this because it goes against basic economics. What if China returned the favor by closing the doors on Indian iron-ore, which is among the largest Indian exports to that country...

    PC Peripherals Ricoh SP210SU - Getting completely dark prints.

    And I learnt something too; when it comes to printers, recommend or buy only those brands that are backed up by good (and affordable) official ASS or decent third-party support. I say affordable coz we contacted the official Ricoh helpline to see if their technician/engineer can diagnose the...

    PC Peripherals Ricoh SP210SU - Getting completely dark prints.

    I gave my working cartridge as well along with the friends' defective one to the repair guy. He came up with this idea a good 2-3 days after this. Am sure it must have been out of accident more than anything else cause he himself wasn't able to explain how he concluded that the chip was at...

    Windows Extra dreamspark win8/7 keys, can they be upgraded to Win 10

    It did. Language chosen during installation was 'English (India)'! I learned only now (that is after posting the initial doubts a couple of days back) that Windows keys are not language specific.

    Windows Extra dreamspark win8/7 keys, can they be upgraded to Win 10

    Got it activated. Yayy!! Downloaded the latest Windows 10 x64 ISO build 1607 (the one which comes with all editions like Pro, Home and N) via Microsoft's Media Creation Tool. The Windows 8.1 key didn't work (error code 0x80041023) after which I tried the Windows 8 key and bam, it activated. So...

    Windows Extra dreamspark win8/7 keys, can they be upgraded to Win 10

    hhmm could be. Would you know what this means "error 0xc004e016 on a computer running microsoft windows non-core edition"? Also, any other way (read as cheap) of getting a genuine Win 10 key?

    PC Peripherals Ricoh SP210SU - Getting completely dark prints.

    @vivek.krishnan This got solved. Changed the toner chip. 350 bucks. Prints are back as they were when new. Changing the OPC, that dark grey colored roller and even firmware update was all unnecessary stuff in the end.

    Windows Extra dreamspark win8/7 keys, can they be upgraded to Win 10

    Ok, so tried a few things over the past week but no success. I tried installing the below keys, Microsoft Windows 8.1 Professional 32/64-bit (Chinese Traditional Taiwan) Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 32/64-bit (Chinese Traditional) on these ISOs, Windows 8.1 x64 Single Language Edition...

    Windows Extra dreamspark win8/7 keys, can they be upgraded to Win 10

    The ones I have are from Dreamspark as well. I just don't know where I am going wrong. I hope those keys haven't expired since I didn't renew ACM/Dreamspark subs when it ended around a couple of years back. Had used only one key since then apart from giving off two to a friend. Had backed up...

    Windows Extra dreamspark win8/7 keys, can they be upgraded to Win 10

    So I can download a Windows 10 single language ISO and install it using the said Win 8.1 or 8 keys? Am a total newb to this so can we revert to an English interface after installing a Single Language (in this case Chinese Traditional or Chinese Traditional Taiwan) Windows ISO? I searched in...

    Budget 31-40k PLS!! Help me getting a lappy within 40k

    OP, have you taken a look at E series Lenovo Thinkpads? Much better built than the Inspiron series. A 6th Gen i5 should be around the 40-42K mark.

    PC Peripherals Suggest large wired mouse for a 1K budget

    @PHOENiX117 sorry about the late reply. I'd rather go for a new one. Btw, just curious, a quick search tells me the G600 is priced upwards of 5K online. How come you're offering a six-months used one for just 1K?
