What Processor Chipset do you have? Hi Naythan, I have found that the quickest way to find out whether you have an Intel chip is to use
https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy/download and load the Free version.
Check the Summary and CPU ~ Chip make and version will be displayed (in detail).
Kind regards, Roger/La Vinuela; roger43@gmail.com
(CCleaner users: when you open the program your basic Processor/Chipset info is displayed at the top center of the screen. -Ed)


Tech News by DoctorLaptop

Internet & On-Line Services Disruption
Huge parts of the internet went offline on the 2nd of June, caused by issues at Google.
The outages led to massive disruptions among some of the most popular tools on the web, including YouTube, Snapchat, and even Google Drive. Yes, the cloud went down too (again).
Since Google technology powers a massive number of websites and services, including Uber, Vimeo, and Discord, there were disruptions all over the web. For many, the outage was a considerable inconvenience, affecting people specifically in the East Coast of America, but also in locations across Europe too.
The Google outage is now fully resolved according to official reports. Here’s hoping that similar issues don’t disrupt us again too soon in the future.
