  1. I'm not sure but you may still be able to get the updates etc. I thought MS had fully removed the updates. I know support ended for XP for home users in 2012/13 and for busines in 2014. The laptop may still be able to access any ncesessary updates if running on the older service packs (SP3 was the last one released) if they are still available online.
  2. The only real way to guarantee that it is clear is to format the HDD and then reinstall Windows. You will need the product key associated with that copy of Windows and that PC (it used to be displayed on a sticker somewhere on the bottom). Bear in mind that if you do that, it won't apply any updates after the version of XP you have as they are no longer supported. Or, you could find out how to use the boot load menu (usually press Del or one of the F keys to enter setup) from the first BIOS screen, select the recovery option but then choose to wipe and reinstall. It's been a while since I did an XP wipe/reinstall so not 100% certain if it will work the way I mentioned above.
  3. It could be that the module which was replaced is the wrong type or it could be that when the module was swapped, something didn't get connected back up or some wires were damaged. The only way to tell would be to strip the console down and check all the wiring in the stereo loom and which BT module was installed. I'm sure someone here will be able to assist further and tell you the correct module numbers for the version of sync you have.
  4. It sounds like you have an earlier version of Sync in the car. The early versions of Sync (1.0) cannot play audio vi bluetooth, they can only be used for hands free calling. Line in is basically an aux input using a 3.5mm headphone jack. Do you have a USB setting in the stereo menu? If not then it hasn't got USB functionality. As for the USB issue, it may be that it is a charging point only and is not connected to the stereo in any way.
  5. Those would be ambient lighting. Not sure how you'd go about changing them over but maybe someone on here could point you in the right direction.
  6. It is probably that the version of Sync you have in the Focus is an earlier version which doesn't support the track display through BT (most likely Sync 1.0). The version you had in the Fiesta would have been a newer version (Sync 1.1).
  7. Did anyone actually know that it was on again? I found out by accident when I was flicking through iPlayer and I'd already missed 2 weeks of it.
  8. There is indeed a BBC iPlayer app on the PS4. I used it last night to watch Top Gear.
  9. yes, a lot of the pay at pump ones do pre-authorise the card. This is to make sure that a transaction can go through before fuel is dispensed. Asda got themselves in hot water last year with the pre-authorisation because they set the limit at £100 so customers were often left with no spare money or had to use overdrafts until it was returned. A lot of online retailers also use pre-authorisation when taking payments but this is usually something small like 1p or £1.
  10. Yep, £1. I thought it would have been like a fiver or something but it was only a quid. Good to know that I can get another one if I decide to route my amp wire through that area.
  11. After finding out I was missing a rubber seal just inside the drivers door under the little window, I got the part from Ford for £1. The second image is how I found out it was missing and is from the passenger side.
  12. I don't like finding out that I was missing a rubber seal on my drivers side, just inside the door under the little window.
  13. I agree with that. I've got F1 and F1 97 for PS1 and his commentary just made the games.
  14. I don't like that all new laptops don't come with a CD/DVD reader/writer now. It means I either have to buy an external one or use my other laptop and then use a USB stick to transfer items across (not good for installing games though that I want to reinstall from their CD/DVDs.
  15. I do like my new laptop. Full HD 1080p 15.6" display, 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD (OS installed on it), 8GB DDR4 RAM and a red illuminated keyboard (it's a mid-level gaming laptop). Very fast to boot and quick response for opening apps, documents etc.
