I'm in need of installing IntelliType 6.x to be able to use all functions of my Microsoft Office Keyboard, but the Program Compatibility Assistant doesn't let me, even though I've correctly set the policy rules (as described here) and even turned off the Diagnostic Policy Service.
The only options I have is "get help online", which tells me that I should download the latest version, and "close" which doesn't run the installer at all.
I understand the program might not work, but Microsoft should at least allow people to bypass their "Let Microsoft decide for you" BS (which I've met like six billion times by now) and let the idiots (i.e. me) take the risk of ruining their computer if they want to.
I am trying to make a DVD with UEFI/GPT support for Windows 8
I have an ISO from MSDN - Windows 8.1 Pro VL (x64) - DVD (Danish) File Name:da_windows_8_1_pro_vl_x64_dvd_2971937.iso [URL] .....
The SHA1 for the ISO matches the one on MSDN
I used Hashtab v.5.1.23 to verify [URL] .....
If I burn the ISO and boot from the DVD created, it boot just fine in UEFI Bios.
But if I change the ei.cfg file to one of these:
[EditionID] [EditionID] Core (Blank) to have the choice to install Core or Pro [Channel] [Channel] OEM Retail [VL] [VL] 0 0
It will not boot in UEFI Bios, it work just fine in Legacy Bios. I can use the program Rufus [URL] .... to create a bootable USB drive, this works perfect. But I would really like to know how to make this work on a DVD. Or/and what I am missing.
I have a paid for version of Acronis True Image Home 2010 that I have used for years with my Windows 7 box and it's been good.
I've also used Macrium Reflect Free, and today I tend to use AOMEI ddata backuper as it's free for personal and commercial use.
I have a new Dell laptop (with Windows 8), and thus far I have disabled the UEFI boot options and Secure Boot and use a classic setup. However, if I wanted to have a play with these other options to see what impact they would have on system performance, which of these drive imaging software packages would work?
I also have a desktop at work with all of these options (and that's likely where I will experiment). On that box, it's simple to drop in a test hard drive and whack away until I get it working. My laptop has an msata drive and I don't have any spares of these drives lying around.
I have a Sony DVD camera (mdl DVR-HC85) that has USB and firewire cables for connection to a computer for the purpose of transferring video to computer programs. Both cables work fine with Windows XP. However, Windows 8 will not recognize the camera when connected by a USB cable. I was told by Sony that neither Windows Vista, Windows 7 nor Windows 8 will recognize the camera when using a USB cable.
I have a Dell computer with Windows 8 that does not have firewire nor can a firewire card be installed.
I primarily use an Easycap to convert VHS tapes to digital video files, but unfortunately, I have my device plugged in, and tried installing a few drivers for it, but none of them worked. I've searched across the Internet for an EasyCap driver for Windows 8, but I couldn't even find one, and have come to the conclusion that Easycap doesn't support Windows 8 yet, unless there was something that I didn't know about.
I have a Pavilion G6-2357sa Notebook and I wanted to upgrade the sound drivers but I went on the HP website and I found out that HP doesnt support my drivers. How do I upgrade my audio drivers if isnt supported on the HP website?
My Toshiba laptop does not let any of the function keys operate properly. When I press one, nothing happens. I have also tried holding down the FN key, to no avail. I thought this was a Toshiba issue, but after multiple customer support "experiences" who told me that the operating system was corrupted, I think it may be a Windows 8.1 issue. This happened under Windows 8 too. Toshiba has a keyboard driver for this laptop model for Windows 7, but not 8.1. Is this a common problem with Windows 8.1 (All drivers are up to date and function key support is enabled in the BIOS)
I'm trying to register the .ocx's mentioned above.I first put the .ocx's in the windows/system32, and thereafter ran the regsvr32 command in cmd (as an administrator). I also tried to register them from the windows/SYSwow64. (I run x86).
However, I get the following error for both of the attempts:
The module ".ocx" failed to load Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.
I have bought a new wireless adapter as my old one had very poor strength and I am really impressed with the signal on this one but after a while it disconnects and then it says there are no available connections. I have to restart the adapter to get it to work again.
If I am gaming online and this happens it's not very useful and I could really do with fixing it.
The adapter is the TL-WN822N by TP-Link.
I have checked the compatibility on the vendor list and it is compatible. I installed the drivers off their website which were 64bit.
I have a pretty good keyboard at my pc and i am sure that nothing rong with it but some times it just stop working, and the all the lights turn off with no warning, after that, about 1-2 min the keyboard just keeps pressing up to 10 sec the key I press...
I was trying to install Windows through a usb on a PC. It had an installation of Windows 8 already and worked flawlessly. I had then tried accessing the BIOS and I turned off Legacy boot. Ever since then, the PC shows no display. It would first give a few beeping sounds (I don't know the exact number), and outputs such as the mouse, keyboard etc had lit up. Now, however, it gives 3 BEEPS and the keyboard and mouse do not work. In both occasions, there would be no display available. Specs are as follows: Intel i5 2300, 8gb of Ram, Intel DH61WW, 550W PSU
What I've tried: Making sure nothing is loose (ie wires), clearing any dust, disconnecting everything but the power.From what I've researched, 3 Beeps indicates a ram or motherboard issue. The CPU, GPU, PSU and hard drives seem to be running, however. The light on the motherboard also turns on.
how to change my BIOS into UEFI. I tried to flash a UEFI BIOS file attached on Acer website but it wont start flashing. The latest version of UEFI installer is not responding when I want to flash it, the older version said I need to have the same type of BIOS installed. how to install UEFI on my system?
I fail to understand why on a laptop (which has no touchscreen) why you would want to have the swipe gestures?
Surely most folks don't look at the touchpad in use, so it is often that one starts off to the right (especially when the pad is off centre), and it is natural to move to the left to find where one wants to start - hey presto the charms bar opens, and if you're not carefull all sorts of events occur which you really don't want.
Any way on my Lenovo Z580 with synaptics 8.1 we have the worst of both worlds - there is no easy option in the Synaptics settings to turn off the gestures, so the option is to do registry editing to the key TouchPadPS2_3 - I have amended the Active Type dwords from 2 to 0. However there is a side effect of this.
When booting, there is now a delay till the process finishes - we now get blue circular processes next to the pointer for approx 40 seconds.
What other edits we need to make to remove this delay?
I regularly work with EFI partitions (Fat32 formatted as per requirements) on my usb drives (for loading Ubuntu, Windows 8 installs, and Win7 installs), and I cannot seem to access any of these drives in Windows 8.
No matter how many times I format the things to Fat32 I can not even access them at all. I get the error message "You don't currently have permission to access this folder, Click Continue to permanently get access to this folder" <Clicks Continue> "You have been denied access to this folder. To gain access to this folder you will need to use the security tab" <Right-Click, Properties, search for non-existent security tab>.
I understand that the security tab does not exist on Fat32 partitions. But how do we access these drives? The only other way I have found is through elevated command prompt run as administrator. (Which is dumb when you think about it because any virus coded for DOS can essentially access your EFI partition essential to your computer's booting into Windows, but you cannot access it to fix it?) Some days I just wonder what people were thinking when they write software. ~Sigh~
I commonly extract ISO images straight onto Fat32 USB when they contain the /efi/boot structure, but I cannot do this without explorer access (Elevated explorer doesn't work either). MS Dos only sometimes works because of the naming rules associated with it and the xcopy command, etc.
To re-create my disaster, format any USB drive as Fat32 using Windows 8 (or plug one in which is already formatted as such) and try to access it. Then try right clicking the drive and look for said 'security' tab.
TO SUM UP: I cannot read/write/access Fat32 partitions. It is a re-creatable issue.
I'm using Windows 8.1 now, but about a year ago, while I was still on Win7, I bought a 3TB Seagate internal hard drive. My motherboard doesn't have UEFI, so I used the DiskWizard utiiltiy from Seagate's website to make the drive look like two drives, one 2TB, the other about 800GB. Now I have my boot partition and several data partitions on the drive, and access to all 3TB of space. Works great on both Win7 and Windows 8.
I just saw an ad for a good deal on a Toshiba 3TB internal drive, but I can't find any indication that Toshiba has software that does the same thing for its drives as DiskWizard does for Seagate drives.
Is there such a utility, either from Toshiba or a third party?
I get an error showing specific module missing while trying to install MS Office 2013... I uninstalled older version using Microsoft fix it also..... Even that's is of no use... How to over come this error
it happens from yesterday, the problem is when I playing games on my Dell inspiron N4050 and then the main power where the charger pluged in is turn off (it is the most problem in my country that there is heavy short fall of power), the laptop is remain ON just for 2 or 3 seconds and then its suddenly OFF. its not happening before, why is that,? why is the laptop didn't get power from the battery.? . when not playing games. and the main power (electricity) is gone, then this problem is not occurred.
I tried changing inf file and it detected the required audio card driver, but it shows that device cannot start. It's Cirrus Audio CS4206B (AB83) sound card, but without emulation it shows it as intel audio card. It would be easier to get back to bootcamp, but I really want to make this work.
Any way to turn off the detection of new hardware? I have almost all services turned off and it keep detecting a secondary monitor. I'm using an ELO 3200L with a dual core computer module windows 8.1 Pro with all current updates. I try disabling the secondary monitor and it just installs it again, I even disabled all monitors, and it install 1st monitor and second monitor. I also then deleted both monitors and windows just keeps installing them both.
Somehow windows detects a second monitor, installs it, the it will disappear on its own, then it will install it again, sometimes it will do this every 5 or 10 seconds. I figure if I can turn off "New Hardware Detection" This would solve the problem.
My Sapphire AMD HD 7870 just bit the dust so it has been sent back with an RMA. I had hoped to replace it with an ASUS AMD HD 3850 but Windows 8.1 will not work with it. There is an error message on a blue screen something about a header (I don't have the exact error message today).
I suspected it was a driver problem so uninstalled the existing driver and tried to install the latest AMD one. I can uninstall OK but as soon as I reboot the Microsoft driver installs itself giving me no opportunity to install the AMD one.
So I have recently switch over to 5ghz wifi, I look up how to check the 5ghz wifi compatibility, it state that if my computer have 802.11a or 802.11n network modes it's compatible to 5ghz wifi. My Windows 8 computer have 802.11n. That should be mean my 5ghz wifi should be showing up, but its not. My Iphone 5S is able to connect to my 5ghz wifi. But my computer is not.
The way I check is type "netsh wlan show drivers" In Cmd, then i look at Radio types supported, it listed as 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.
