Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I don't know whether this is useful: it used to work when I had an iPhone 4. When I had to get a new phone it didn't work on the iPhone 5. Now I have an iPhone 8 and it doesn't work with it either.
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 7 months ago

Hi Richard, I went through the steps and rebooted. I tried connecting to the hotspot but had the same resultd
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 7 months ago

It saw the hotspot though correct?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 7 months ago

ok, than do the following please

Click start, type in CMD and right click on command prompt and select run as administrator

A black window will open.

Type in it

sfc /scannow

press enter and when it has completed, type in

chkdsk /r

Press enter.

It will give a message "the type of the file system is NTFS cannot lock current drive.

chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts y/n" Say Y, press enter and restart the computer.

Please note, while this normally only takes 10 minutes to run, it can take at times number of hours if windows encounters many issues. If this is occurring it is critical to let this complete as it means you have corruption on the hard drive that it needs to fix. Even if it looks like the scan is not progressing, it is, please just let it run to completion. Windows will then start when it has.

Then try to connect please

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
