Merry Christmas to all of you. I asked for some AirPods and an Apple Watch. I am giving my mom a container shaped as a pyramid that I made in my ceramics class.

Hi, Molly,

 

 

I'm really excited for Christmas too. I knitted dishcloths for everyone for Christmas this year. I usually give gift certificates but this year I thought I'd do something different.

            2.  Hard Disc Drive, which is spinning platters of magnetic media with read/write heads

            3.  Solid State Hybrid Drive, which has a very small SSD component paired with a conventional HDD - These are not all that popular and seem to be going away.

Doing a chkdsk on an SSD would be expected to be hugely faster than doing the same on either an HDD or SSHD.

A huge HDD that has not much actual storage space allocated will also go through a chkdsk much more rapidly than one packed to the gills with data.  And any unallocated space (as in a partition that's never been assigned a drive letter) will not be scanned at all.

My surface lags slightly sometimes, but it’s no big deal. I’ll probably upgrade my surface next year. For now I love it… Most of the time.

I can’t comment on the Surface and I don’t know why the computer you describe was so slow.  I am using a laptop at the moment, as I write this message which I bought in 2011.  It was a reasonably fast machine for its time but nothing out of the ordinary.  I can load Chrome using a blank home page in about three seconds.  The New York Times Home Page loads in

about three seconds.  I can load Windows Live Mail in slightly less than two seconds.

 

It takes about twentyy seconds to get to the login screen when booting and ten or fifteen seconds to get to the desktop when I press enter to log in. 

 

Computers using physical hard drives aren’t slow if they are reasonably fast machines.  And I’m using Windows 7, and many Windows 10 users say that Windows 10 is faster. 

 

And as I said, if I use sleep, I can resume from sleep in two or three seconds.  I just opened Wordpad.  It took about two seconds.  If I open word starter, it takes a good deal longer. It takes about ten seconds.  But after you open Word, you work with documents.  It should take no meanikngfully different time regardless of mechanical or solid state drive to edit a document.  

 

I’m not disputing that a SSD is faster.  I’m saying that for many users, I don’t think the faster time matters in any significant way.

That sounds more like a memory issue than anything related to your
storage.  Windows these days isn't happy with less than 4GB of ram, and if
you had less than that on that pc, it's no wonder it was slow, since
windows had to swap all the time.  I'd wager that if you upgraded the ram
in that machine, it would run considerably better.

Re: Want to resume chkdsk

Sarah k Alawami
 

On my ssd the check check disk in about45 minutes and it's a 1 tb hard drive. Man that thing is fast when it wants to be. No there is no way to resume. Just let it run over night.

Take care

Thank you. My computer doesn't have any issue. I want to check my harddisk has bad sector or not. Capacity of drives are so high that I can't complete in 3-4 hours.

As far as I know you have to let it go to the end as it restarts again after
a new start unless there are hidden files which tell it otherwise, but that
would be a security issue I'd have thought.
 Also be aware that if any software has changed any of the files it scans to
ones modified, the old ones will be put back and this will mean those
programs will have to be reinstalled again. that has my experience even on
windows 7.
 What exactly is the issue you are trying to fix?

Re: fore some reason nvda isn't talking when I'm using my keyboard

 

I have had a system with memmory issues.

System boots, then it doesn't random shutdowns a lot of issues all over the place.

You can try running a memmory diagnostic from a boot disk if you can access it or there are some windows apps I forget.

But ram sticks can go bad.

That sounds more like a memory issue than anything related to your storage.  Windows these days isn't happy with less than 4GB of ram, and if you had less than that on that pc, it's no wonder it was slow, since windows had to swap all the time.  I'd wager that if you upgraded the ram in that machine, it would run considerably better.

I mean, unless you want to go with a 1 tb spinning hard drive and in 2018, that's a hard sell.


I was using a computer recently that had a core i7-7820HQ (that's a quad core processor with 8 threads). It had a mechanical 1 terabyte hard drive, and it was made last year.


Browsing the web was so much slower than on a machine with a solid state drive. It shouldn't be - after all the web browser was already loaded - but it was truly painful. Restarting was just about as painful, to. Even comparing this to a cheap windows device with a solid state drive - even EMMC storage - and I truthfully can't recommend a mechanical hard drive these days. And I'm not even getting into general performance. Moving around the screen was painfully slow. Opening apps took far longer than a machine with a hard drive, even 4 or 5 years ago, used to. I'm not sure if it was the screen reader making performance that much worse, but it was similar to using a computer, back in the day, that had 256 mb of ram and ran windows xp. Browsing the web, while doable, was probably my biggest issue.


So, yes, while the surface go is relatively expensive when you increase the storage space, it comes with the benefit of having a solid state drive. In todays day and age, we think windows 10 is very light on resources. It most assuredly is not.


Re: How different is NVDA different than Jaws? ... JAWS cursor

Sarah k Alawami
 

Oh, that's the easy part. It gives me a layout of what the screen looks like in a way. it's just like a mac. Open up the box to see what's inside that box and you sometimes have to repeat but it is way easier sometimes to use than jaws now a days.

My most difficult issue with NVDA is understanding object view. I struggle to move freely around the screen the way the JAWS cursor often does.
