DoctorLaptop’s Computer Service Current Offers: All end 30Nov19.
-Upgrade your Windows 7 computer to Windows 10, €70. Your data is saved, all your 3rd party software is removed, all saved passwords will need to be re-entered. Some early Win 7 computers cannot be upgraded, or can only be upgraded to Windows 10 32-bit (not 64-bit). If it has a Pentium processor or was built before 2012 this may be the case.
-Update your Windows 10 v1803 computer to the current v1903 now before v19H2 comes out next month. If you fail to do this you may be unable to update to v19H2 directly thru the Windows Updater; it will then require you download a special updater tool from MS. I can do it overnight, €35.
-Add Linux to your Windows 7 computer. Keep your Win 7 for offline activities, use Linux for internet. You choose which system to boot when you power up (known as a “dual boot” setup). €50 to install most versions of Linux. I suggest a version of Linux called Zorin, it looks very much like Windows 7 and is very user friendly for most common online tasks like email, FB, Youtube, etc. https://zorinos.com/
If you are interested in ditching Windows and trying Zorin watch this video.
-All work by appointment. Make appts by phone, so we can discuss available times and what you need to bring.
When requesting email assistance always include make/model/System version info.

Help hearing aids seem to be dying: Hi DigameXtra – My one and a half year old hearing aids, not the dangly ones, these live in my ear canal but they are NOT completely in-the-ear. Expensive ones, bought in the UK, manufactured by ReSound LINX 3D. No complaints until about 2 months ago when started to experience really weird interference, and the aid for my left ear conked out about a week ago. Please could someone help with address of local specialist repairer – hoping that I will not be directed to Malaga or further afield – would be fantastic if there was help available locally! Keeping my fingers crossed that I can get this resolved fairly swiftly – many thanks, diannelast@yahoo.co.uk

EU27 fail to agree length of Brexit extension for UK: The EU27 member states on Friday were unable to come to an agreement on the length of the Brexit extension Brussels would offer the UK, with the French reportedly the most reluctant to back a delay until January.
The EU’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier announced on Friday that EU nations had been unable to come to an agreement on the length of the next Brexit delay due to the fallout from Boris Johnson’s demand for a December election.


Designer Outlet Update: The opening of the new Malaga Designer Outlet, near the airport, was called off this week. The British-owned addition to the existing Plaza Mayor shopping complex has been delayed while the promised access improvements are made to the MA-20, and it is hoped the official unveiling will now be in December.
