  • Can you use spray insulation under screed?

    I have concrete slab with copper pipes for gas and water in my kitchen. I need to insulate it and then put screed on top. The screed will contain my water under floor heating. I have got rigid insulation where I can except I  the kitchen where I have too much  pipes and will require too much cutting of the rigid insulation which makes it weak. Is spray foam strong enough to use in the parts where the pipes are? Any other suggestions?

    Many thanks

  • Displays of laptop and tv goes off after a bit when connected together via hdmi?

    Ok so I have just downloaded drivers for my laptop manually to enable me to connect my tv via hdmi (this wasn't possible without these drivers for some reason-i had no signal on tv). While I was connected I was watching a program and halfway through the tv went blank then the laptop went blank but the laptop was still running. However, I got the laptop back on (it actually resumed ecerything back to normal). So it connected tp tv again but very soon after (5mins) the same thing happened again! I decided to watch the show on my small laptop screen alone and it didn't go off. Why is this happening when connected to it. The resolution was 1336x768ish. Is that too high? Or is it power saving? I doubt it though as power saving is on balanced with no limitations. What can it be?

  • HELP! I can't view my laptop on my 32 inch TV via HDMI cable?

    Hello I have tried everything for this but no luck!. My laptop is a HP pavilion DV3 2130ea. The internal graphics card is Nvdia Geforce G105M. The TV model is LG 32LE4500 which is a full HD 32 Inch LED TV. I have connected 2 different types of HDMI cable to this TV and this laptop. The laptop does "see" the LG tv in "control panel". However, when I connect the HDMI the tv goes blank and then "no signal". I have tried all the HDMI ports on the TV but no luck!. However, the PS3 works perfectly on the TV and also this laptop did work with another smaller HDTV. I have spoken to customer service but they can't seem to resolve it - they say the TV is fine but it's the laptop's problem. I wish there is some sort of solution for this. He also says that I should keep the laptop on low res as the laptops graphics card won't be able to handle the 32 inch tv. I have tried all of this. Please help guys or advise me on who to call? THANKS!!!!

  • What is the significance of accessory renal arteries?

    I always wonder what do questions like this mean by "significance". However all I know is that they may arise from above or below the main renal arteries. Also these "extra" arteries are found more commonly in the left kidney. Thanks in advance.

  • I buried my newborn kitten, is the poor thing definitly not alive?

    I buried the kitten. I checked before to make sure the kitten is not alive. I picked it up to check for any movement there was none. The kittenwas also cold on touch. I waited for an hour too see for any signs of live. I even tried to do cpr on its tiny chest for 5 minutes, but nothing happened. Can i b sure that the kitten is definitly not alive?

    I've just arrived today, from university and spotted the poor thing to be layin in an unusual manner. Apparently, kitten was crying all night. The other three are ok. The mother is young, i hope the rest will b fine. And i hope i haven't buried that kitten and he/she is not alive.

  • iphone 4 suddenly turned off and not turning back on?

    Man, I got this phone just 2 weeks ago, and about half an hour ago, after I called my friend (I didn't get through to her), it just suddenly went off and not turning back on now.

    I even tried connecting it to my laptop with the USB cord and still nothing happens...

    I have just recently moved into university, which is very distant from my home town, and my stupid mobile contract was the only way I could make calls.

    What should I do? Help would be greatly appreciated.

    It is not covered with insurance, it's a contract with O2.

    Thanks for the help

  • iphone 4 built in speaker problem?

    Hi guys! I have just received my Iphone 4g handset and one of my friends were playing about with it... teasing me. She attempted to drown it in a glass of drink, while she thought she wouldn't get it dunked, she actually got about half a CM from the bottom edge of the phone (but instantly pulled it out)... the built in speakers are located there as well as the port to input the cable! So I was just testing, with some music, the built in speakers... I can only hear the right one and not the left one (or probably due to human error it's just louder than the left one). Please can someone confirm with me that if this is normal or not.

    The Iphone 4 did have a silicon fitted on it already while it was dabbed. Everything seems to work fine... the only thing I'm really worried about is the speakers... as I don't know if it's a normal thing for them being like that.

    The incident had taken place about 5/6 hours ago, I would very much appreciate your help!

    Thank guys.

  • PLEASE HELP! PC operating system problem?

    I downloaded windows 7 to try out on a "vista" laptop. Then I used Daemon tools to mount the image file. Then I started install... Then at the "completing install" stage (the last stage among the 4 or 5 stages) it stopped (I think) at the bottom of the screen (the installing bar thing). Did it stop? or is it just taking long? It's a pretty good laptop.

    But that's not the big problem. I (the idiot) held the power down to see if it would restart and continue reinstalling... But obviously it didn't. It said in the middle of the screen "setting up services" or something... Then it would just come up with a message saying ... ... ... "press OK to restart and continue install" then after trying that several times that message dissappeared... and now it would just restart and go back to that "setting up services" and restart again automatically - constantly. How could I fix this? without losing the pictures being lost? (I'm so gonna die).

    I have searched all over the internet for answers but had to post this up to see if you guys had the answer. I beg you - This is my girlfriend's Mum's laptop... Please help me.
