IMPORTANT UPDATE: The method below does NOT work. The only was to change your backup payment method on the new Paypal site is to NOT use it until your latest payment has fully cleared then remove your card.
In this post I assume each user knows how to add their new payment method to Paypal. This post is about how to remove your existing backup method for payment, which will in turn allow you to change your backup payment method.
If like me you have a credit card registered with your Paypal account which is being used as a backup payment source and you want it removed then keep reading.
Basically I was concerned with a credit card debt and cut up the card so I could not use it anymore. The problem arose when I realised I had registered the particular Mastercard on my Paypal account. As I didn’t want to be tempted to use it via paypal my choice was to remove it from my Paypal account completely. It didn’t happen as planned which I will go into more detail about later. However, for some this method will work fine.
I have personally completed a Quest to see just how many MB or GB online gaming actually uses up. After originally googling it I found mixed results, but due to a friend considering signing up to a mobile broadband package with a data limit I put it to the test. I have a tethering plan with my mobile phone provider which allows me to use my mobile phone has a portable wifi hotspot. My first stage of the test, upon arriving at my friends house, was to perform a speed test in the area. I used the Ookla app on my phone and got a download speed of over 3 Mbps and an upload speed of less than 0.5Mbps. That might not sound too impressive but it was actually more than 3 times faster than his landline broadband due to living in a rural area.
I wrote this post as a troubleshooting guide for anyone having problems running Steam games on Windows 10. As you read on you may well find that the problem is not related to your operating system at all but just in case I have included a few tips for you to try in resolving any issues you may be having. Leading up to what actually worked for me. So I decided to finally boot up Bioshock Infinite in my Steam account, having already completed the first two instalments. However, to my horror after installing the mandatory steam files the game just crashed every time I tried to load it. Therefore, my first port of call was Google where I found an article saying I needed to uncheck ‘Enable the steam Overlay’ in steam. Which I did but it had no effect. I went back to Google and saw an obvious choice due to recently upgrading to Windows 10. The choice was to set the game executable to run in compatibility with Windows 8. As I know Bioshock Infinite worked for me before the upgrade as I had preciously given it a test run. Again, no effect.
If you want to try the former methods you can do so like this:-
If you, like me, noticed your Windows 10 Update failed to install. Then don’t lose hope, it’s not corrupt and the Microsoft Website say’s the update will still be rolled out at some point.
However, if you can’t wait for Microsoft to automatically update your Windows 7 or Windows 8 / 8.1 computer to the new version then please continue reading.
