  This week Microsoft announced the opening of their new store in Chandler.  The first Retail location in the US was the Microsft Store in Scottsdale where I attended an AZACC meeting. They offer FREE computer support for ANY Windows machines except XP. This is a valuable resounce and free so the opening of the Chandler Store  will benefit our club.


Today we had a great presentation from Kimberley Belair on the Mesa Public Library.  Kim is the manager of the  Mesa Express Library in the Power Square Mall on the corner of Power and Baseline.  Drop by and see Kim to pick up your library card or get help with your electronic books. 


Gordon Flanery gave an outstanding presentation today and talked about the many services his company has to offer. The name of his company is Byts Computer Repair and his web site can be accessed by this link.


Laptops & Batteries :   BEWARE IF YOUR LAPTOP IS 3 OR MORE YEARS OLD.  If your laptop has a hard time booting up or suddenly crashes and Windows has to recover you may have a dying battery.  If you always use your Laptop plugged into power then take out the battery.  This will save you the expense of buying a new one.  When the battery is in the Laptop then the power to the computer must go through the battery and if it is dying then the output may not power your computer. Laptops run just fine without a battery and you will get full power to your system.  This is a good diagnostic tool to sort out crashes. Take out the battery and see if the problem goes away.   5 Battery Myths debunked by Kim Komando.
