Setup Installation :: Live Tiles Stop Working When Join Domain

Jan 17, 2013

Trying Windows 8 at work and bought new Samsung 700t tablet. Windows 8 works fine with local user (linked to live id) and all our software including Symantec Endpoint 12.1.2. As soon as I join to domain (server 2008) and reboot the live tiles no longer function. Have total reset several times and tried refresh and restore points. My guess is that has to be default behavior of Win 8 GPO compared to 2008 domain GPO. We are very plain on our policies and so far have not found anything on local computer or GPO that can correct issues.

Maintenance :: Live Tiles Not Working Anymore?

Feb 2, 2013

I have the problem since a few weeks (mostly after a tile update), and I'm not the only one, my friend has it too on both his laptop and desktop, that the live tiles, or actually some of them, for example weather, are not refreshing anymore. It just shows the blue weather tile. When I open it, it works though, news the same. Also I tried to deinstall and reinstall the weather app, but now it doesnt even show the "use live tile" button anymore (look at picture).

Computer On Domain - Stock Active Tiles Blank And Unresponsive

Apr 15, 2013

I am setting up an image to duplicate on our student laptops this year and have run into a strange problem. Our computers are on a Domain and the image works great but when a new user logs on with their Domain credentials, all of the stock active tiles are blank and unresponsive. We can have the student log out and back in and the tiles all work the second time. Same thing happens every time a new user logs on for the first time.

How To Add Fifth Row To Live Tiles Screen

Dec 4, 2012

So, I was trying to add a fifth row to my Live Tiles screen, as I have 4.

According to this: [URL]...

There are a certain number of maximum rows you can add based on your screen resolution.

My screen has a 1366x768 (Not mentioned there). Based on that, I can only have 4 rows. But, what could happen if forced a fifth row with that registry hack?

Also the tiles ARE being clicked. They get punched in, but they don't actually do anything.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Professional - Live Tiles Aren't Updating

Oct 31, 2013

Many of my live tiles (Weather, Fitness, Music, Games) don't show anything aside from their logos. They are turned on. I've probably quadruple checked them at this point. For troubleshooting, I have:

Verified that those tiles are turned on.
Verified that the time service is running.
Verified that all the apps and/or their licenses are synced.
Uninstalled/reinstalled the apps.
Removed McAfee (replaced it with Avast free).
Run the UI diagnostic/repair tool that you guys have in one of the long stickied threads.
Verified that they're set to animate via appearance and performance settings.

It looks like the tiles are receiving data, as the Weather app currently has a little 'i' icon in the bottom right hand corner, and there is a weather alert in my area. It's just that there's no temperature/background. It's just the blue tile with white sun. Very odd.

Refreshing this computer is not an option, as I use it for work as well as general computing use.

Apps / Software :: Mail / Calendar And People Apps Live Tiles Not Updating

Aug 27, 2014

For more than a week now, the above situation have been occurring. I have "scoured" the web and tried a lot of "solutions" and none as at yet have normalized my situation.

I am suspecting that I might need a registry solution, since I cannot refresh my installation- I upgraded to win 8 from win 7 online.

Also, the Skype app crashes almost as soon as it finishes loading and returns to the start menu. But, there is a sign it is still running and whenever you click on it, it trips off again.

I have uninstalled and re-installed several times, ran the apps troubleshooters many times, checked that the time service is running, synchronized this and that, etc to no avail.

My Mail Live tile do not have the option to turn on/off live update but the Calendar and People tiles have it yet none is updating.

Some Tiles Not Working Under Win 8.1?

Jul 6, 2014

After running win 8.1 for several months (mainly by running desktop and working as I always used to with occasional forays into the win 8.1 start screen and clicking tiles), I have discovered that just recently many of the tiles don't work correctly or at all.

Two different examples; in the win 8.1 start screen I can see news displayed in my 'news' tile, cant see a tile displayed in my clock tile to name 2.

If I click on the affected tiles, the screen fills with the coloured background and the news icon (or clock icon) then I get returned to the desktop with this 'tile' now an icon in the bottom menu bar, no content is shown. Some however do work such as my Facebook, internet explorer, music and LinkedIn tiles to name a few.

I don't know if it is relevant but just recently I have been having issues with Drop Box not being able to start on power up and telling me to sort out permissions. On one occasion it asked me to change inheritance settings (don't know what that is) but it did not work so I changed them back.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 OEM Key Not Working?

Feb 5, 2014

I have a lenovo laptop that came with Windows 8 x64.

I used ProduKey to extract the license key of my Windows 8 x64.

I downloaded a Windows 8.1 x64 ISO and tried to do a clean install of Windows 8.1 using a USB. It asked me for a key, so I put in the key that was extracted. It said the key was in valid.

I also went to this website, Upgrade Windows with only a product key - Microsoft Windows Support, and tried to use the key for both Windows 8 and 8.1, but both of them didn't work.

I booted the USB in legacy mode (NOT UEFI mode)

Browsers/Mail :: Live Tile Not Working After Windows 8.1 Upgrade

Oct 19, 2013

I have upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1. After doing so and making sure my accounts are all setup, I have found that I can not get the mail tile to act "live". I have verified it is set to live by right-clicking and seeing that link state "turn live tile off". I tried doing that and then turning it back on. I have tried rebooting. But the tile just isn't live. My other live tiles (news, finance, weather, store, etc) all seem to be live. It is only mail that I am having a problem with.

Setup Installation :: Win 8.1 Refresh / Remove Isn't Working

Aug 14, 2014

My PC started off on Win 8 and I upgraded to Win 8.1 .

I want to do a completely fresh installation. I do not mind going back to Win 8 and redownloading Win 8.1 afterwards.

My problem is that when I go to PC Settings > "Remove everything and reinstall Windows", I get the error: "Insert media. Some files are missing. Your Windows installation or recovery media will provide these files."

I have a partition on my computer "HP_RECOVERY (F:)". It states 1.24 GB free of 10.6 GB. When I open it, it contains a folder called "Recovery" and "HP_WSD.dat" -- the .dat file is 1 KB. When I open the folder, it says that it is empty (hidden folders and files are set to be shown). If I look at the folder properties, it states that it contains 1 file, 2 folders. The size is 69 bytes.

I have not touched this recovery partition ever since I got this PC. I have, however, run a partition software before because I split my (C:) into (C: and D:). I do not know if this may have somehow corrupted my recovery partition.

What is the best way for me to quickly and cleanly format my PC without losing my registration key? I do not have a copy of Win 8 or Win 8.1 on a CD or USB.

I opened up cmd as admin and typed in "reagentc /info" and it output this:

Code: C:WINDOWSsystem32>reagentc /info Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) and system reset configurationInformation: Windows RE status: Enabled Windows RE location: ?GLOBALROOTdeviceharddisk0partition3RecoveryWindowsRE Boot Configuration Data (BCD) identifier: 8fc8db37-7d80-11e3-91ec-faa553f3f5b4 Recovery image location: Recovery image index: 0 Custom image location: Custom image index: 0REAGENTC.EXE: Operation Successful.

Security :: Windows Defender Decided To Stop Working?

Apr 29, 2013

for whatever reason windows defender decided to stop working e couple of days ago... whether a quick scan or full scan it stops about 2/3 the way through and reports the following error. i have no other av installed, no remnants of another av on my system, scannow shows no problems, dism health test checks out just fine, etc., etc. also, fwiw, there is nothing in defender's history files, all clean... as a result windows defender has an orange format, instead of green, which is apparently the default color scheme when it is not able to protect the system adequately.

Hardware Drivers :: Some Keys Stop Working For Some Time?

Jun 4, 2014

In any case, as the topic title says, some keys on my laptop occasionally stop working for some time, before returning back to normal. Sometimes simply pressing the key several times makes it work, sometimes holding it pressed for ten seconds or so works... Sometimes neither of these works. Occasionally, the key starts working it I press it in rapid succession with a key that does work. For example, pressing I, a non-working key, instantly after pressing J, which works perfectly. Sometimes I simply just randomly press keys on my keyboard until the non-working keys start working again. Backspacing seems to make it easier for them to go back to 'non-working state', although this may be just my imagination.

When any one of the keys that sometimes stop working stops working, none of those keys works. And when one starts working again, all of them start working. Although they may return back to non-working state right away. Although it might be just coincidence, and it doesn't actually work that way.

An incomplete list of the keys that occasionally stop working:
(Left) Ctrl, I, O, 2, 7.

There are others, I believe, at least one more number, but I have no way to check until they stop working. And at the time of typing this post, they seem to be working strangely well.Also, the keys are (almost?) always in the 'non-working state' when the laptop wakes from sleep mode and I have to input the password. Luckily, it offers the On-Screen Keyboard option, which, by the way, works perfectly.

Maintenance :: Certain Programs Just Shut Down - Stop Working Correctly

Jul 7, 2013

When I've been running certain programs on my computer, I keep getting the message, program has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. This has happened to me in Internet Explorer when I try to play movies, Windows Media Player, Norton Internet Security and when I try to run Windows Experience index.

Some programs wont even open. My computer has been running fine since I purchased it 8 months ago. This started happening after a windows update a couple of weeks ago. I've refreshed windows 8 twice, ran a full system virus scan, ran malwarebytes and it found nothing. I also tried sfc /scannow and used dism /online /cleanup-image /restore health to fix component store corruption and fix corrupt system files and also tried gwscan from Hirens boot cd. I generated a system health report and this is what the report came up with:

Hardware Drivers :: All Rear USB Ports Sometimes Stop Working?

May 31, 2014

And it happens only when I boot the computer up and find that neither my keyboard or mouse are working then I plug them into front (2) avaialable usb ports and they work fine....

And then If I try to uninstall universal bus controllers by device manager then my keyboard + mouse stops working (obviously) then I shutdown via power button .... plug keyboard+mouse again back to rear usb ports... and they start working till few days...

I'm on windows 8.1 x64 with latest updates and all latest drivers etc...

The funny thing is this problem is with me since last 2 years or so... and I changed 3 Power supplies since then and luckily one motherboard, changed 3 mouses and 1 keyboard, 1 Hard disk too

even if they are plugged in rear ports I get "USB Disconnection" sound sometimes....

now thinking about buying a bluetooth keyboard + mouse but there are other things that needed to be plug in into rear ports... or should I go for an internal USB 2.0 PCI card ?

Setup Installation :: Drive Clone Attempt Isn't Working

Jun 21, 2014

I'm a heavy OSX user so I don't know a whole lot about this, but my son uses Windows because he likes to play games. I'm trying to upgrade his boot drive from a 1TB HDD to a 512GB SSD.

Last night I used Norton Ghost to try to make this happen, but after it completed, the SSD is not booting. I swapped it back to the regular HDD and it's fine. So, I suspect I did something wrong since I don't know too much about this.

The top photo shows the settings that I chose in Ghost. I can give an explanation to why I picked those if any one needs to know why.

The bottom photo shows the results of the clone. The top drive is the original 1TB source, the bottom one is the SSD. I had expected Ghost to pull the smallest EFI system partition, but it didn't. The SSD does have enough space for the data.

The recovery partitions on the original drive... I do NOT want those on the SSD. I have a flash drive that I will use to make recovery media. I don't want to waste space on the drive for recovery.

The source and destination drives were connected to a second PC and were NOT the boot drives.
