    • Smartphone is like human being, when its been over worked, they tend to misbehave. Do this simple trick and it will fix your device.

      Go to settings>>apps>> click on individuals apps you have installed on your device and hit the clear data button. Do the for all the application but don't touch Google play services and google playstore. Once you are done, reboot your device.

  2. My tecno p5+ rebooted and since then it has not pass the experience smart life now boot screen please what can i do to get ma phone back and running again

    • Hello Anthonia, (Make sure you have good internet connection in your location and it is not set to EDGE. If your network is not good, browsing experience will definitely be dull.) If you think your network is good on your tab an not on EDGE then Proceed to the next steps:

      Two ways to fix this but first of all, you need to soft reset ur device. If it didn't fix it then you perform the second steps. In most cases, soft reset fixes it.

      Soft Reset Procedure
      >>Press and hold the POWER button.
      >>Release the button when the screen turns off.
      >>Wait for your tablet to get rebooted.
      See if it is now running like it was before.

      Secondly,
      clear your browser cache and any other apps cache. You can clear your app cache by going to settings>>apps and click on the apps after which you can reboot.

      Finally, Double check that the Performance setting is not set to conservative.

  3. I use a wiko slide 2, now I notice that the right side of the screen is not responsive to touch. Like when I go to menu, I can't select apps lined up on the right. So I gave to search. Even while typing in chats, I can't use some keys unless I rotate d screen. Any quick fix?

  6. Please help! My HP pavilion G6 screen will just go off while it's still on. After multiple off/on process, it will then come up. What might be the problem?

    • Hello Anonymous, are you sure you didn't set it to turn off after some couples of minutes if unused? Since its not BOD issue, I'll suggest you check if you set it to that.

      Click on Start>>then Control Panel >>and then Hardware and Sound, and then click on Power Options.

      >>Click on the Change plan settings link that is next to the plan that is currently selected.

      >>make sure that Put the computer to sleep is set to Never. Next, change the Turn off the display setting to whatever value you desire.

      You can also check your Screen saver settings features.

    • hello Prince,
      Many things like make your laptop not to boot up. The first thing you should answer is can you you boot it into safemode?
      >>Press F8 as your laptop is starting up and you’ll get a menu offering to boot into Safe Mode. From their you can due some changes…

      Another thing you should check is either your Windows OS is corrupt hence needs reloading or you change your hard disk if the initial is not working.

    • The solution is battery. Check if your battery is properly fixed. or use a piece of paper to support the batter so that it can contact well with the battery terminal or change the battery completely.

  16. To power d Vkworld F1 on again after an automatic switching off, I ve to remove d battery every time it switches off and then press d power on button. It is frustrating. Prof Yomi please help out to stop this unwanted automatic turning off Vkworld F1 smartless phone. Tnx

    • by going to Menu, Settings, Language & keyboard, Touch Input, Text Input, under Finger touch precision, choose Calibration tool or even Reset calibration.

  17. Good morning, my samsung duos is not working smoothly. It takes alot of time to open phone contact, message and other aps despite the fact that I always remove junks files using memory booster. I need your help. Thanks.

    • Your Samsung needs cleansing… Go to settings>>>Apps and open individual apps, click on clear data. do that for all your application but don't touch Google Play and Google Play services. After which you can reboot your device and watch the performance.

      If no changes, then you'll need to restore it to factory settings… but before you do that, back up your doc and files including contacts.

  18. Prof.. I use an infinix hot note 2.. But the 1gb RAM version, and I find it difficult to minimize and still resume the application. Is there any lighter ROM that can work here.. Cos the stock ROM occupies more than half of the RAM already.

  19. Hey, I recently changed the panel of my samsung galaxy note N7000, but i can't get service network. The baseband is showing unknown and the imei null/null. What can be done prof?

    • Hello Al-ameen, I've already answered you in your previous comment but it appears you didn't read it. Download touch screen calibration from google playstore..Install it and follow the onscreen instructions

  20. 1) My Hot note doesn't show when I connect it to my PC, (I can't access my files)
    2)My chrome browser on my laptop only opens Facebook and all Google sites(Gmail, blogger etc)
    3)I want to upgrade my hot note to Lollipop.. I already downloaded the two files in this your post.. What next?

    • 1. Does it detect on your laptop? if Yes, choose connect through MTP from your android once you connect it to your laptop and you'll be able to access your file. If it doesn't detects on your laptop at all, have you try another usb cable?

      2. Clear your browser cache… And also try to mask your ip address with vpn. Once done, try and open other sites, if they opened, then you need to try another network perhaps your local IP address might be a culprit.

      3.Just follow the guide carefully in that post

  21. Hello prof of have hp 8.1 2g ram how can I increase the Tam to 6gig ram cos It's presently slow due to the application's I have on it. And also my p5+ when browsing freezes and drains much battery in no time, and It once told me that I have contacted a virus due to a file I downloaded that have affected my battery how do I resolve these

    • Hello Hamaz,
      Its very simple to increase your Ram, if you are techy enough, you can open your laptop back cover or give it to an engineer, they'll replace your 2GB ram with 6GB ram. You an always buy a 6GB Ram from a computer hardware store near you. You can do it yourself.

      If your P5 have contacted a virus. My 2 cents advice, back up your files on your PC and factory reset your device. it will fix it.
