Hardware Drivers :: Space Key Sets Randomly Spaces When Texting
Aug 11, 2014
I am working at a desktop pc with Win 8.1 installed. When typing, spaces appear randomly (also in the middle of a word - it is not as if the space key had got stuck). Nevertheless I got a new keyboard but the same problem occurs. I removed the keyboard driver - did not work. The keyboard is not wireless, plain USB. Seems though, as if the fault appears only in programs of the MS office suite.
I am trying to add photographs to my pc and make files for different sets of pictures but the photos app that is bundled with windows 8 is not very useful. It wont let me make separate files and when I want to print from this app I cant. I have looked at other available apps in the store but they all appear to be the same with poor write ups. also when I import pictures into pc it makes two copies so if I upload 20 pictures it copies 40 and then I have to delete half of them, this is really starting to irritate me now, I am trying to start photography as a bit of a hobby but I am finding windows 8 not very user friendly at the moment.
I have a computer running windows 7 now that has 5 drives (3x2TB and 2X3TB) that act as my home media storage center. I have TV shows split between 3 drives and movies on 2 drives. When I access these from other applications, it can be hard to group everything together and if I run out of space somewhere, it is a nightmare.
Win 8 pro x64 is on it's way, but wanted to know how to set up Storage Space. I have looked through the tutorials, but cannot figure out how to set my system up, if I have media in different spots.
Do I create 1 Storage Space and all 5 drives are in it then I just have to point to if from my other applications to get to the data? Do I create a storage space for each type of media (music, TV shows, Movies, etc.)? When I add a drive to a storage space, how do I get it to include the files within the storage space and not just use the "empty" drive space?
I am not looking for redundency protection, but to make my handling of data across all the drives easier (e.g. "Did I put my Futurama series on drive 1 or 2...Did South Park make it on to one drive or did I have to split it up?)
i've just formatted my HDD partition where os was. After that I've also deleted the respective partition and now I can not do anything to install the os in that partition, the partition now is unallocated space. I was using Windows 8.1 before all this mess.
I have dual-booted Windows 8.1 and Windows 7. I have managed to free up a significant amount of space on Windows 7 and was wondering if it's possible to add some of the freed space to my Windows 8.1 partition?

So, I installed Windows 8.1 x64 from the Windows Store yesterday and now my QB-35US3 Hard-drives keep randomly disconnecting and connecting again. I had no problems before the upgrade. The bay is connected via USB 3.0.
I am running 8.1... recently my second seagate barracuda HDD has just been disapearing from explorer... this is my last resort, after this there is nothing... google is completely useless.. I have bought a brand new sata cable, so thats ruled out, the drive is NOT dead, it works perfectly fine and is 100% healthy. the motherboard is not fried, that was just replaced not more than a month ago. the UEFI BIOS is up to date... basically as i said my drive just disapears.. some days ill be able to see it and access files, the next it will not show up in any program at all... I have tried seatools, it does NOT show up in there... im just about ready to throw this damn drive out the window...
I've tried three mice, Logitech G400, Razer Deathadder 3.5 and a random Logitech wireless but the problem remains.
I haven't found any coincidents when i run a specific program or game. Sometimes it goes a day or two without incident and sometimes multiple times a day. I have run several Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Avast scans but they did not find anything.
I have also ran a "sfc /scannow" and the "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" to fix. I have tried the current drivers for every mouse, tried without drivers and tried to uninstall all drivers all let Windows install them itself.

I have bought a HP envy 15 and upon using it a couple of times I turned it on again and Bluetooth had DISAPPEARED it was non existent in any settings or the Control Panel or anything except in Device Manager. After excessive clicking around I found that it had been turned off so I turned it back on.
I have used it for a while since until I turned it on today and found it to be again completely disappeared, I have tried everything within my knowledge to fix it and right now I have re-remembered how utterly worthless HP are at making hardware. I cannot find how to turn it back on again if it is the same error, but I do not think it is.
If I go into my device manager now (see image) it has the exclamation mark through it which means what exactly?? Clicking to update the driver does nothing, restarting does nothing, I can't see how uninstalling or disabling it will do anything.
I have recently upgraded to windows 8. I was previously using a logitech mk320 mouse/keyboard and experiencing the same issues. So I purchased the new K330 setup that is windows 8 compatible, but again same issues. A little less frequently, but same issues.
Basically the keyboard will randomly have a 3 to 15 second delay when typing. To make it worse when it does finally pick up it leaves out letters making it very hard to type anything. Secondly the mouse will also randomly be very choppy. Not completely unresponsive, but skip over large sections of the screen. It's almost like the batteries are dying, but I have replace them 2 times now with fresh ones.
Been experiencing seemingly random BSOD's for the past few weeks, and completely unable to solve the problem myself. It happens from a minute or two after startup to after 3 or 4 hours or working, and sometimes doesn't crash on intensive apps like Furmark.
I'm running a Lenovo Y400 with the newest Nvidia drivers, and have attempted rolling back and uninstalling with DDU but no success.
I just bought my new PC, and i got a problem with it: My Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard randomly stops responding or sending keystrokes to the PC, its likes it lags or disconnects randomly, its very weird. I installed latest drivers, did plug in/out the receiver from different ports to others with no luck.
I've been using storage space for around a year with pool and raid functionality and I just realized the numbers don't add up... I have 7x 2TB all parts of a single pool with parity. Now here's the numbers:
Physical space: 14tb Storage Space size (user set): 12tb Used Storage Space size (according to windows explorer): ~6tb Used Storage Space size (according to storage spaces): ~9tb Individual drive used % (according to storage spaces): ~75% each
Storage spaces tells me to add a drive, low capacity... So I know how normal RAID5 works and it really shouldn't use 50% of the total used space as shown by the numbers above (6tb + 3tb assumed to be parity = 9tb). Also, if I need to add another drive, this means I'm almost full at 6tb/14tb?! This is worst than MIRROR RAID...
I am setting up a new home PCServer and decided to use Win 8.1 since I needed to upgrade to at least Win 7 Professional to use Disk Mirroring. Now I find out Win 8.1 has Disk Mirroring (From Disk Management Console) and Storage Spaces.
My question is which one is better and faster. I just want to mirror two drives (RAID 1) to store my pictures so if one drive fails I have a copy. I'm not interested in expanding this or adding drives that Storage Spaces seems to support.
I setup a parity storage pool with 2x500GB drives and x1 1TB drive then started transferring data, i noticed that they were getting full so added a 4TB drive and carried on transferring data however the x500GB drives are full and it will not let me transfer anymore data(currently about 2TB) the 4TB drive only says 18% full. Is there a configuration or command to move the data around the disks so they are all the same percentage eg 60% full? I have since tried moving data off the pool then transferring it back but I'm not sure its making any difference to the way the data is stored.
I have x1-500gb x2-1tb x3-2TB and x2-4TB drives with about 12TB of data i would like to store. Am i better off having multiple Pools with matching drives ?
Windows 8: I have 4 drives assigned to a raid1 and a raid0 storage space. A power plug broke off of one of the drives. I ordered an exact replacement hdd pcb for that drive. It spins up, bios sees it, I'm 100% sure no damage was done to the data as the drive was off when the power plug was broken. windows sees it but storage spaces thinks it is a new drive. So spaces is still showing the raid0 offline and raid1 in lowered resiliency mode. I am assuming something on the logic board, maybe hdd serial# or guid or something is now different for the repaired drive.
In powershell if there is a way to tell storage spaces that the repaired drive is in fact the one that it thinks is offline?
I installed Windows 8 Pro on a GPT partition. I have 234GB of SSD with 87% free space according to Disk Management. I am trying to create a 4GB primary partition for Intel Rapid Start but the Disk Part shows i have no space available in that drive and would not let me create the partition. Why would that be?
When adding an initial drive to a storage pool I get the error "incorrect function"
System: Proliant ML110 G4, Windows 8 64-Bit, 4GB Ram
I have a 160GB drive installed on the motherboard's controller which hosts the OS. I've installed a single 2TB drive on a 2 Port PCI Express Internal SATA II Controller Card (JMB36x). As soon as I create a pool using the 2TB drive I get the error "Incorrect Function" and the drive becomes RAW.
The drive id's are unique. It's worth pointing out that the system without the new controller can only support 2TB max of SATA drives, but this is bypassed by the controller card I added?
I've just been migrating data to my new Storage Space on Windows 8. I had to do this in stages because I had a limited number of disks available to me. I had 2x 2TB disks in a nas box, and wanted to move them to a new server, and also added 2 more 2TB disks. Due to the nas being quite full, I started with a 4-disk pool consisting of 2x 2TB and 2x 500GB disks, and made a parity space.
My process was as follows:
Create parity space with the 2x 2TB and 2x 500GB disks Copy all data from one of the disks in the nas to the space. Remove 1x 500GB disk Allow the space to repair Add 1x 2TB disk from the nas into the pool Copy the contents of the other nas disk to the space Remove the 500GB and add the 2TB Allow space to repair
The space is thinly provisioned at 4.85 TB which is what the GUI defaults to when I create a new parity space using all 4 disks. (I don't actually create the additional storage space). This is also what I calculated it to be (1.81*4*2/3).
Now the end result is very uneven disk usage and a low capacity warning, despite having what I think is about 57% total utilisation!
Here is a link to a screenshot of the space's setup:
1) why it thinks there is low capacity?
2) How can I rebalance/redistribute the data evenly over the 4 disks?
I am currently running win 8 with a pool of drives configured in storage space about 10TB. I want to build a new computer with Win 8 and move the current drives to the new computer without losing the data is the possible?
I am using Windows 8 x64. I have a few software applications and one or two IDE's installed in drive C(system drive where my Windows is installed). Now my C partition is of 68 GB now suddenly I am seeing that almost all the space in drive C has ben used up and I am only left with ~6 GB of free space. Now when I am in drive C and select all the files and folders and check what is the space that it all takes up, the size returned is only 43.3 GB(check the attachment sc_shot1). But when I view C drive from MyComputer I only get ~6GB of free space shown to me(check the attachment sc_shot2). So if all the files and folders in C only take up 43.3 GB where is the rest of the 68.3 - 43.3 =25 GB. Am I being attacked by a virus or worm ?? I am using a licensed copy of QuickHeal Internet Security 2013 and I have scanned drive C with it, it reports no infections. I have also tried using the "cleanmgr" utility and clear up some space by deleting temporary files, but that at max gives me back ~1GB of free space.
I have a 500 GB hard drive. The windows partition -60 GB- is running out of free space (only 13 GB is free after cleaning up and so) and the performance is going down . I want to increase the capacity of my C partition without losing data -i mean decreasing the size of the other partition and adding some capacity to C ....
