Jan 25, 2013

In these days somethings strange has append to my new laptop (asus).

Even when i put my computer in sleep by closing the lid, it turns down for a few seconds, and then it turn on again.

Windows 8 Sometimes Won't Shut Down / Sleep / Restart Properly?

Oct 1, 2014

When I choose to either shut down, restart or put my laptop to sleep through the Windows 8.1 start menu, usually everything is okay and the process works, however sometimes (I'd say one attempt on four), the computer is stuck with the screen turned off but the fan still turned on! In this case all I can do is to force the laptop to shut down by pressing the power button 5 seconds, but I was always told it was somehow bad for the computer and would eventually damage it

Windows 8 Won't Shutdown Or Restart?

Nov 9, 2011

Running Windows 8 Dev. Preview on a Dell Latitude D610 (1.73Ghz, 2GB). System Hibernates fine (my main mode of powering off) but will not properly shutdown or restart. Every time I hit shutdown/restart it goes to a black screen. I know that it's still running because the power light is still on and the hard drive light flashes just as if it were still in use. I've let it sit for 3 hours in this state and it still refuses to shut down.

Windows 8 Fails To Shutdown Or Restart?

Feb 26, 2013

New Dell XPS 8500 following installation of programs and an attempt at creating a image using the built-in imaging program now fails to restart or shutdown from the start screen. When I attempted to create an image I got a statement that "there is not enough disk space to create the volume shadow copy on the storage location". I had 1.34 TB free on an external drive for an image calculated by Windows as 135.78 GB. After the image attempt the problems started. Today's session with Dell did not solve the problem. Their tech will call to walk me through reinstalling the system to the original state. I hope this is not a common Windows 8 problem.

Windows 8 Sleep / Wake / Restart And Shutdown?

Jan 15, 2013

Any magic keystroke combination for "Sleep" or is there anyway to create one? I know about Win+I then Power then Sleep.

Any option to stop scheduled tasks or other triggers that "Wake" your computer from sleep? I find my computer running in the morning after putting it to sleep at the end of the previous evening! I have reviewed all 41 scheduled tasks created by Windows and installed applications and "apps" and found none that have the Wake Computer check box checked. What's annoying is the fact that once woken the computer does not go back to sleep again! I am using the supplied balanced Power plan.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Slow Boot / Restart And Shutdown

Mar 9, 2014

My system has been on completely since 8.1 and has never needed to restart until I did some updates today.

Now I'm not really concerned about shutdown or restart as I will manually shut down the PC if I'm going somewhere for an extended time "I never leave anything on, power for the entire house is shut off" and will shut it off until I get back.

But the slow login is really killing me as it used to take 1 second to hear that little "tick" from the speakers and I'd see the login/splash page, but as of today I will hear that "tick" but the windows dotted circle will spin for oh.. 30 seconds than I can see my splash screen.

I've scanned my C: and D: disks, ran defender, antivirus, etc and all came back fine and I even have 90GB free out of my 120gb drive.

Windows Time Not Synchronized After Sleep / Restart Or Shutdown

Jan 3, 2014

I started to notice a change with the clock every now and then. I finally concluded that the clock does not change during sleep, restart, or shutdown.

My computer goes to sleep often, and when it wakes up from sleep, the time is the same as when it was prior to sleeping, not synchronizing to the correct time after waking up.

I've done some research and I fell onto the official Windows thread where they explained the use of third-party-utility will cause this problem.

The big problem here is that I don't have the single clue which ones. I tried uninstalling some, not sure if I left any utilities out. The utilities I've used are the general ones for visual styles and themes.

I'm running Windows 8.1.

I7 3630m
Gtx 680m sli
12gb ram

Now for the problem when I receive the laptop it was preinstalled with window 8 and on the first boot it took around 5 to 6 mins to boot to desktop..I reinstalled the windows considering it to be the bloatware fault..

The problem gets solved but after i download alienware osd drivers , alienware command center and nvidia drivers the delay is back ..

It starts with a bsod (your pc ran into problem)error window minidump memory.dmp.etc and after that windows boot restart and shutdown after almost 5 to 10 mins..

In the duration of delay there is no hdd activity and after 3 to 5 minutes when the hdd gets actives it boots to desktop in 5 secs..

Add Shutdown / Restart Tiles To Start Screen

Dec 28, 2012

From Winbeta: Simply copy the following code into a new txt file and rename it to whatever you like, just add the .vbs to the file extension. For example: shutdown.vbs. Once this is done, simply double click the script and it will create the tiles for you. If you are unable to create a .vbs document, make sure you have "show file names extensions" enabled in Folder Options within Windows 8.

set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strStartMenu = WshShell.SpecialFolders("StartMenu")
set oShellLink = WshShell.CreateShortcut(strStartMenu & "Shutdown.lnk")
oShellLink.TargetPath = "%systemroot%System32shutdown.exe"
oShellLink.Arguments = "-s -t 0"
oShellLink.WindowStyle = 1

[Code] ......

"Shutdown, Restart and Log Off buttons have been created. You can now pin them to the Start Screen of your Windows 8 computer (if they are not already there)."

Maintenance :: Difference In Start Up Times Shutdown / Restart

Mar 8, 2013

I have been running Win 8 on my ASUS Q200E Laptop and have been puzzled by the difference in the startup times between a cold, power off start up and a restart startup. On a cold startup, the desktop is completely ready to use in about 20 seconds. With a restart, it takes about 38 seconds to get to the same point.

Windows 8.1 Not Booting Properly

May 3, 2014

my computer has suddenly starting acting up:- I cannot enter my password due to no response via the keyboard I am using a MS Comfort 500 keyboard & mouse but this isn't the main problem as if I can open up the computer (and I can now and then) the cursor is very jerky and unresponsive, but now things have got a whole lot worse the computer is starting up in repair mode (didn't know this existed) but cannot repair itself so gives me the options of refreshing or resetting, now resetting seems a bit drastic as although I have my files on external discs and in the cloud I have never done a restore point and it seems as though a disc my have failed but as I cannot get into the computer I have no way of doing any other checks it could have been a virus that caused the problem, wish I had created restore point, if I do a reset I will loose all the programs on the c drive.

Windows 8 Search Is Not Working Properly?

Nov 5, 2012

Neither the start screen nor the search feature within Explorer will return any results if the files I want to look for are on my secondary HDD. This is a bit of a problem as all of my documents, pictures, videos, downloads etc are on this secondary drive.

I can even go into the documents library and search using Explorer, and it still won't find anything that I search for.

I recently bought a new laptop which has windows 8 installed on it and at times when I put it into sleep mode the screen goes off but the computer is still running and I have to use the power button to turn it off(Which I don't really like to do). When I turn it off the same thing happens and sometimes when I'm lucky it will give me an error message .I have download all of the updates for windows 8 which did not solve it and I disabled fast bootup which didn't either I am just wondering if I download 8.1 will it fix it although I installed 8.1 on another laptop and the same thing happened and then I installed just 8 which gave me the same result.

How To Get Windows 8 Running Properly On MacBook Pro

Sep 15, 2011

how to get Windows 8 running properly on a MacBook Pro (or in general any Mac that supports BootCamp).

Everything runs kind of smoothly, except since Apple doesn't "Officially Support" Windows 8, out of the gate I wasn't able to get a few things working. Unfortunately, the driver disc that Apple provides to you doesn't install officially because I was "not running Windows 7."

I am using a MacBook Pro, early 2010. 2.4ghz Core2Duo, 4gb of RAM and a 1tb HDD.

Not working
Volume Buttons
Brightness Buttons
Eject button
2-Finger Scroll

I'll update later once I am out of class, but those are some things I've run into.

Windows 8.1 Doesn't Turn On Properly And Needs Recovery

Feb 19, 2014

When I turned on computer it showed a message that system did not turn on properly. It gave me choices what to do:

-refresh PC
-reset PC
-advanced options

I've chosen system recovery in advanced options. Everything would be fine, if it would keep same settings before the problem occurred. I spent a lot of time getting settings right. And that would be okay, if it happened once. But it happened second time in period of two weeks. I don't want that error happens again.

My computer specifications:
-OS Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
-NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650
-Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz
-120 GB SSD disc and 931 GB HDD.

Audio Driver Not Working Properly In Windows 8.1

Jan 2, 2014

I've created a Windows 8.1 partition separate to the original Windows 7 install. The manufacturer, Acer says the model is supported for the Win 8 upgrade. I did it on a second partition and simply installed the W8 drivers from their website. It uses Dolby Digital Audio V4. It sounds poor on Win 8 though, on the occasion that I boot back into Win 7 the difference is like night and day. Any icons in the try, apps etc. appear to be properly installed and loaded in Win 8 yet the audio quality from the speaker and with a headset is still degraded.

Sep 8, 2012

I really like Windows 8, but I have a problem with the app that controls messages. It's linked with Facebook, so whenever one of my friends is messaging me, I'm can answer from the app. Pretty smart, I think.

However, I have a problem. I have to friends with same name and last name.

My problem:

Friend number 1 is chatting with me.

Friend number 2's profile picture appear in the app.

Sometime friend number 2 recieves the message I'm sending to friend number 1.

Another problem is that the app doesn't seem to figure out if I already read the message on Facebook.
