How To Stop 8.1 From Changing Volume Setting

Dec 16, 2013

I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Win 8 (shoulda done more homework, but too late now!). Now when my speakers are plugged into my headphone jack, my volume control gets set back to 42ish. When I try to set it higher, I get a nanny warning about high volume causing hearing damage, and have to select "allow", which lets me change the setting, but sets it right back when I go to sleep mode or shut down. Most annoying as I use my laptop with speakers all the time as an entertainment center. Samsung, Windows 8.1 64bit, just updated audio driver, too.

Browsers/Mail :: Setting IE Home Page But Losing Settings Every Time

Aug 1, 2014

I am using IE 11 desktop.

In Settings/Internet Options/General I entered an address to be used as my home page by clicking 'Use Current'.

I also selected 'Start with Home Page', applied the settings and Ok'ed.

On the Home Page icon on the toolbar I elected to 'Use this page as your only home page'.

Just to avoid the obvious question: Yes, I WAS on the page I wanted to use as my home page when I took these actions.

But every time I open IE I get a blank tab and these settings have disappeared and have to be added again...and again...every day.

Setup Installation :: Can't Get DVD ISO To Work With Both Home And Professional

Feb 12, 2014

I thought I would look at creating/using my own media.

I have been using VMs for testing these, so much better than playing with someone's PC

I have ISOs for both 8.0 and 8.1 which I downloaded using Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create. The licence key I used for the download was my legitimate one that I purchased from Microsoft (so it wasn't OEM), it is actually an upgrade key from Windows 7 for Win 8 Pro. I can install these ISOs no problem but they always install the Pro version and I never get an option for installing Home.

I tried putting a ei.cfg file in the sources directory containing

But this just allows me to install without the key. I tried putting both "Core" and "Home" in as an EditionID but the install process fails saying "The product key entered does no match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key"

If I try using the downloaded iso without the ei.cfg file but instead use the generic key for Home I get the same message.

So I'm pretty sure the downloads I got from MS just contain Pro. Is this right or is there a special way of making Home available? Based upon what I have seen in the forums I would also probably need "Home Single Language" to be available as well (if possible).

In case it makes any difference the ISOs I have always set their language to English (United Kingdom) during the install.

How To Find Key To Add To Home Group Policy In Registry

Jun 30, 2013

I've looked at the Group Policy Search with Azure, but I don't have a clue as to how to find the correct key to add to the Home Group Policy in the registry. I need to get rid of whatever policy is causing this error message every time I try to install Corel's PaintShop Pro x5 in D:Program Files (x86):

This installation is forbidden by system policy. Contact your system administrator.

This "sounds" like it might be what I need, but I wouldn't dare mess with the registry without being sure.

"Configure software Installation policy processing" Group Policy Search

But whatever I need to use - I would need hand holding on how to use it!

Network / Sharing :: Not Able To Connect To Home WiFi When Upgrade To 8.1

Nov 19, 2013

I have recently up-graded my laptop from 8 to 8.1. Since that time, the laptop will not automatically connect to my home wifi. If I try to connect manually, it will say "unable to connect to network" and that's it, no more clues! The only way I can connect is by selecting 'restart' and then it will re-boot and connect automatically. If I 'shut-down' after use (or hibernate) it will not re-connect until I have selected 're-start' which is time consuming and annoying!

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 And Home Networking With XP Units?

Mar 30, 2014

Using Windows 8 and XP on Home Networks and, unfortunately,I personally believe this is NOT POSSIBLE.

I should add however that my network, 1 Windows 8, 3 XP, 1 Laptop with Windows 7, 1 laptop with Linux, all did work until recently, so I think it is one of the Windows 8 updates have screwed up the system.

At about the same time I also started receiving notifications from Microsoft that XP would no longer be supported after April, so maybe there is something intentional here.

Can Windows 8 be made to give the option to install Home or Pro from one iso like Windows 7 could? There is no ei.cfg file to remove like in 7. I tried this method from the How-to Geek but it did not work. Error 87 like a lot of others experienced.

Network / Sharing :: Skype Or Viop Alternative For Home LAN Only?

Feb 12, 2014

I'm looking for a skype like tool to use over my home LAN. Your definition of a LAN may be different than mine.. what I'm calling a LAN is my home network which is simply two different computers plugged into my AT&T modem/router. (one plugged in by hardwire and one on wireless)

My thinking is this.. I need to chat and video with family at home no one else but i don't want the chat audio and video going out over the internet then coming back to my house before we receive the data.. that takes too long and there are delays due to low bandwidth. I'm seeking to avoid this by keeping all the data from leaving my house and going out to the internet.

I have looked at SIP tools like Linphone but when i signed up and set it up, nowhere does it ask me for any LAN information.. It never asks me for or tries to detect any LAN settings - it looks like it's going out over the internet to some SIP servers someplace.. thats simply not going to work.

Network / Sharing :: Cannot Save System As Home Computer

Feb 9, 2013

When I go to advanced system settings and choose Home instead of business, when I save and restart it is still on Business network. I have windows 8 pro 64 bit on a HP pavilion elite 8 gb ram i6 1tb drive. I have made sure that the services below are running as well as set to Auto.

o Computer Browser
o DHCP Client
o DNS Client
o Network Connections
o Network Location Awareness
o Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
o Server
o TCP/IP Netbios helper
o Workstation

Also, I have recently "refreshed" my computer which I thought had fixed it. It actually fixed the "turn file sharing" not saving issue I was having, now this.

Network / Sharing :: Mixed Home Networking Environment?

Mar 15, 2013

best configuration for a home network if I am using a mixture of different computers, including Win 7, 8, and a new-ish Mac? The Mac has Lion.

If Macs are compatible with Homegroups or Workgroups or Domains? I am a little rusty on my understanding of their differences exactly.

I also have a router that I am planning on using with a network drive option for an external HDD. I have a couple mobile devices as well but I'm not very worried about their compatibility.
