P.43 Problem Solving

1. Look on the back of the software for the minimum hardware and software requirements and see if the operating system on your computer matches the minimum requirement. You could also ask someone in the store for the information or look it up on the internet if the information is also available there. You could also check the return policy for the store on the software and see if you can try it and return it if it doesnít meet your requirements.

6. Look online or locally for a place that recycles old electronic devices. Find someone locally that collects and turns them into a recycling facility. Before doing so the hard drive needs to be formatted or erased using some sort of software. Online there may be some options to recycle them and get some cash in return, this is particularly common for phones but some research may find other opportunities.

7. Go to Walmart and see if they have a universal laptop charger or a charger for your specific model of computer. If not then fully shut down the laptop to conserve as much battery life as possible and only turn it on right before the presentation the following day. This is not a good way to be prepared though so a good idea would be to check if the location youíre doing the presentation at has a computer available and to make your presentation available through the use of a thumb drive, cloud service or by emailing it to yourself. If this isnít possible then the best option may be what I listed earlier.

8. Any email provider today should have the option to downsize the photos to make them appropriately sized. Any smart phone should also have this capability. If this is not an option then the first possibility would be sending the pictures in multiple emails to decrease the size being sent per email. If this doesnít work then if using gmail you have the option to upload them to googledrive and send them as a link where the pictures are stored on a cloud server.

10. Make sure the computer is on and connected to the internet. Make sure the smart phone is connected to its cellular network and that web pages are loading correctly. If all of these things are true then there is a problem that may be beyond what you can do to fix it. Sometimes on the bottom of the window or somewhere in the menu there are synchronization settings and I would try to look for that and see what it says. If not then usually giving it a bit of time make the synchronization issue resolve itself.
