Hi . I am using a Raspberry pi 3 A+. I installed the latest version of Noobs and also used Sd formatting card. It downloaded the system on to the pi.
NOOBS isn't an OS, it's an OS installer. So what operating system did you install?
The card is 16 GB card and is not an official raspberry Pi card. It did not come with a card. Problem is the connection to Chromium is slow and it keeps closing down ,asks or passwords and log in etc. I transferred the sd card into a Raspbery Pi 3 B and it worked fine.
The 3A+ has half the RAM of the 3B(+) and Chromium can use a lot of RAM, depending on the websites you visit and number of tabs open. The Pi3 in general is not a great computer for web browsing, and the 3A even less so due to the limited RAM. If you try to open more than 3 tabs you can run into trouble even with the 3B+ (again, depending on the web site, some are more RAM hungry than others).
Not sure what passwords it would ask for (it shouldn't). What else did you install?
I can't understand, is Noobs too big for the A+ and if so what should I use instead. Please help as I am new to this and I want to get up and running. Thanks
NOOBS does use some of the SD card space for itself, but a 16GB card should have plenty of room for a single OS (if you tried to install more than one OS, then you might run into space issues).
Personally, I skip NOOBS and just install a Raspbian image
directly with Etcher
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
