ASUS K95VB Notebook - UEFI Option In BIOS

Jul 26, 2014

Just got my hands on a brand new ASUS K95VB notebook on behalf of a friend. I used a USB with Windows 8.1 on it in order to format the hard drive and install Windows. The hard drive is 3TB. I remember trying to install Windows using the UEFI option in the usb startup menu but that didnt work so I proceeded on the non-uefi option.

Now the problem is that only 2 TB are shown and the remaining 1 TB is shown only in device manager as not assigned...

If I understand correctly, the BIOS should be in UEFI mode and then the hard drive should be converted to GPT and then install Windows.

But, no option in BIOS for UEFI to be enabled whatsoever. What on earth should I do?

Maintenance :: No Power Option In Windows 8

Jan 23, 2013

I recently upgraded to Windows 8 (64-bit) and noticed I don't have power options available. I own an HP Pavilion DV7, usually when I leave the laptop to do something over night, I go into "Choose what closing the lid does" and I get the error saying my power plan info is not available. Whenever I try to create a powerplan it tells me the same thing, but when I hit next, it tells me it can't find the file specified. I have no power options at the moment. I tried resetting to defaults using cmd, rebooted, and the only power option I had (Razer Gamebooster) was gone, and had nothing after.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 Won't Retain Changes To Power Option Settings

Sep 15, 2014

I've been trying to change my power options. I go into Power Saver, "change plan settings," and try to change the "On battery" setting from "Put the computer to sleep: 3 minutes" to "Put the computer to sleep: Never." (I want to make this change because I have a Dell XPS, and it can have difficulties waking up from sleep.)

I've made this change a number of times, but after a while my computer simply reverts back to the 3 minute setting on its own. So, I leave the machine alone for a few minutes, I come back, and it's asleep...even though I thought I had changed the setting to 30 minutes. And in fact, I *had* changed the setting to 30 minutes; the computer is somehow reverting to 3 minutes on its own.

Maintenance :: Power Saver Settings Option Windows 8?

Aug 30, 2013

Use of the Power Saver Setting in Windows 8 lowers my pc temperature (at idle) by at least 6 degrees. Using this setting, my pc now idles at 27 degrees C. When I use High Performance, my idle temp is usually at least 33 degrees, or more. For those who have problems with their pc's running warm, this is just one of the things I've found which works for temperature lowering. My biggest impact on lowering temp was air cleaning the pc case interior - getting all the fuzzy balls out...... At one point, my idle temp was in the 50 to 60 degree range and I figured my disk was failing. After checking for a possible problem, I found much of the problem was my own maintenance procedure failure. So, if your pc seems to be running rather high, look around for the simple solutions - clean pc, use power settings, etc.

Dell Venue Pro 8 - Set Sleep Mode To Never On Power Management Option?

Mar 9, 2014

I recently purchased a DVP8 and I love this thing. Problem is, it suffers from wifi issues in that once it goes to sleep, the wifi automatically goes to "limited" and I need to retoggle the wifi setting to get it connected. I've tried all kinds of fixes - uninstall windows updates and reinstalling drivers, but to no avail.

So I basically said screw it, and set "sleep mode" to never on the power management option, and no more wifi issues. Seems like the wifi doesn't reactive properly when coming out to sleep mode. My question is - will this damage the tablet in the long run? In terms of battery life, I would think the main factor is the screen on time. I can just turn the screen off with a tap of the power button. Is there really that big of a difference?

Maintenance :: Troubleshoot Option Under Advanced Startup Option Missing

Oct 23, 2013

The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over.

Setup Installation :: Installing Windows 8 On HP G62 Notebook?

Mar 10, 2013

I'm trying to dual-boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 in the same machine.

Before doing something this risky on the host computer I tried to install Windows 8 in a VM using VirtualBox but I got an 0x0000005d error similar to the screenshot below:

which means my CPU doesn't seem to support the NX (Non-eXecute) or XD (eXecute Disabled) bit feature (or at least doesn't have it enabled).

I proceeded to check with CPU-Z and going to the model page on HP's website and both of them seem to imply that the NX feature is available for my CPU.

Here's the CPU-Z screen:

The problem is that even though I have the "Hardware Virtualization" feature enabled in the BIOS, it seems like there's no option available regarding said NX (or XD) bit by default. The BIOS software is InsydeH20 Rev 3.5, version F.32.

Is there a way to be able to install Windows 8 on said computer that doesn't involve having to upgrade the BIOS software?

Windows Boot From GPT GUID On Notebook With UEFI

Aug 9, 2013

I have my main nbook (MSI GT683R-261CS), which have UEFI (AMI Aptio). However when I try to install Windows to (pre-created) GPT GUID sytem boot partition, Windows installation program kicks me to balls, that it can't be installed there.
In UEFI setup, there is no option to switch between MBR and GPT boot. Is there any utility, which will tell me, if my machine supports booting from GPT GUID?

I proceed in creating system boot GUID GPT by something like this:

list disk
select disk[=n]
detail disk
list partition
select partition[=n/l]
detail partition

Dell Inspiron 3137 Notebook / Windows 8.1 And IE 11 - Can't Connect To One Website

Nov 18, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 3137 Notebook Running Windows 8.1 and I use Internet Explorer 11. There is one website that I can't connect to, all I get is a blank page. It is a site that I pay my credit card on. Everyone of my other web pages loads properly.

This website worked fine on Windows 8, but I upgraded to Windows 8.1.... now it won't load the website.

Dell :: Studio 1458 Notebook / Windows 8 - Can't Disable Sleep Mode

Dec 5, 2012

I recently updated my Studio 1458 Notebook from 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 8 Pro.  It is a 2.4GHz Intel Core i5-520M, 8 GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066 MHz RAM, 512 MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 Video Card, 500 GB SATA @7200 RPM HDD.

Since upgrading, I have had no control over the Sleep function.  I have changed all settings I can find on CONTROL PANEL<POWER OPTIONS, and still the system goes to "Sleep Mode" if I do not touch it for a few minutes.  It even went to Sleep DURING the Windows 8 installation, which made it take longer than expected.

Transferring Data From Notebook To PC

Apr 28, 2014

So my notebook refuses to boot, so I decided this:

I'll move all the files I want from my notebook to my pc and then do a clean reinstall of windows.

This is my process and I'm going to do and I want to know if I missed anything:

1) write down cdkey ( is there a text file somewhere? last I checked the registry and command prompt it shows us empty)

1.5) change the boot settings

2) boot from cd with the linux live cd knoppix

3) buy a bridged usb cable

4) install driver for cable on both computers (stuffed can be installed even though I boot from a cd right?)

5) copy files over

5) download windows 8

6) burn to cd

7) do a clean install using the custom option.

8) install bridged usb cable software on new windows

9) transfer back data.

HP Notebook With GPT Partition Table?

Jan 29, 2013

i brought an HP Pavilion G6 and it comes with an GUID partition table (GPT), EFI and Secure Boot. However i need an MBR partition table, so i tried disk managerment but the option "convert to mbr" is greyed out and when i run the "diskpart - list disk - select disk 0 - convert mbr" i get an error "cannot convert a partition which has a pagefile on it" (disabling the pagefile didn t worked).

I guess my only other option is to format it, but the notepad comes with an lincesed Windows 8 which i dont wont to loose. So what are my options? I dont ave the CDs, as it s HP packet.

Update:I ve successfully formatted my Notebook. All i had to do is enter legacy mode, disable secure boot and boot from the Windows 7 DVD. So if you ave no intention using Win 8 it won t be a problem to "downgrade" in an UEFI/EFI System.

New HP Notebook Recovery Disk

Mar 26, 2014

I have an HP Envy notebook. bought it 3 months ago. made recovery disk (actually it's on a flash drive). Had troubles with the notebook. HP support walked me through factory reset. Twice.

Never used the flash drive. used whatever was on the computer. Whether or not to keep the recovery stuff I put on the flash drive? Just wondering if its a waste of a perfectly good flash drive, seeing as I never used it when I reset.

Dec 3, 2013

So this morning my dad went to power off his ASUS K55N Notebook, and it didn't turn off correctly, the screen went black, but the system stayed powered on (had to perform a hard shutdown).

Leaving Notebook While It Is Charging For Long Time

Jun 9, 2014

I have a software on my notebook called Lenovo Energy Management, and there's 2 battery mode available, the one is "Maximum Battery Life" and the other is "Optimized Battery Health" so I choose "Optimized Battery Health" mode, and leaving my notebook while it is charging for about 5 hours.

When I am go back home, I saw that my battery is stay on 60% and it say "Plugged in, not charging". It won't charge the battery higher than 60%, so I guess the battery is limited to 60% from it's full capacity. The question is, is it safe for the battery if I leave the notebook while it is charging for more than 5 hours even the battery capacity is limited?

Network / Sharing :: ASUS Notebook - Default Gateway Not Available?

Jul 31, 2013

For the last week or so, I've been having issues with my ASUS notebook disconnecting from my wireless network or having a limited connection. This would happen maybe twice a day, but eventually I went online and I found that I had an outdated driver for my Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230, and as soon as I downloaded the latest driver, my notebook would disconnect every 5 minutes or so. Running the troubleshooter just keeps returning the same thing; Default gateway not available. It also does this annoying thing where it'll disconnect and reconnect over and over again, so quickly that the network sharing center can't even register it's happening. I've tried resetting the WINSOCK, IPv4 TCP/IP, and IPv6 TCP/IP stacks, I've tried a clean boot to see if it was a startup program affecting my connections, and I've changed my power settings so they don't turn off my adapter. I even tired booting my computer in safe mode, which didn't work.

Here's my ipconfig /all:

Hardware Drivers :: USB Driver For HP D035dx Notebook Downgrade 8 To 7?

Mar 6, 2014

I downgraded this laptop from 8 to 7. The only driver I'm having problems is the USB controller.

I went to the HP we site and selected the Windows 7 driver but I get an error:

(This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software.)

I have downgraded many machines now and this is my 2nd one that I have had issues. My last computer I had to grab drivers from a computer that was close to the same model.

I tried the programs DriverMax and Slimdrives and they found an USB controller driver that seemed to work but when I plug in the flash drive it does nothing.

Network / Sharing :: How To Bring Back Server Share To Win 8 Notebook

Jun 17, 2013

I have a new Windows 8-notebook connected to a workgroup-ethernet-network via router,to which a windows [version unknown]-server is connected and 6 other clients,2 of them macs,4 xp-pcs.

On all machines,3 other machines resp shares are constantly visible in "network places":

1 the server-share
2 a client-1 share (which has no internet access)
3 a client-2-with-internet-access-share

The notebook gets internet via the wall-plugged lan,from a router-plugged DSL-router. All issues mentioned here are not dependent on which lan-wall-socket is used. (there are 3 in each room). There is no wlan-accesspoint.

Issue: The notebook is _not _seeing_ (not in net places,and not forceable) the server-share_, despite the fact,that the share has been used before to install a bigger client-server software,which worked.

First appearance: Some day someone tried to access a lan-wall-plug-connected printer for printing, which at that time could be seen in network places,as then could the server; after which _both_ disappeared.

Unfortunately,above said client-server-sw is not working anymore on the notebook. How can I bring back the server-share to the Windows 8-notebook?
