Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Or 8.1 On Touch Screen Ultrabook

Mar 3, 2014

Just got a new laptop which came with windows 8, It's an Asus Zenbook UX302LG. I tried Windows 8 a bit during the developer preview, but I'm really not that familiar with things, anywho. So this has a touch screen, and I've been using it a fair bit, but I'm curious about 8.1. Being the "newer" version", from what I've seen it has some improvements over regular 8 in some areas, like the apps screen looks a little tidier.

What I'm wondering though is does it also remove some of the touch features I would be using with a touch screen? Or just make them more mouse friendly. Long story short, given I have a touch screen which I am using, should I upgrade to Windows 8.1? Or will I have a better experience with regular 8?

Setup Installation :: Dell Ultrabook - Windows 8 Install Blank Screen

Feb 15, 2013

The problem I have now is when turning on my laptop it stays at the Dell logo for about 5 minutes before continuing to attempt to load windows, this is in UEFI mode. In legacy mode, it loads past the Dell logo in seconds, but this does not load windows.

I am trying to reinstall windows with the Dell windows 8 Home premium disk. When the disk finally loads, it just stays on a black screen, and I've left it for about an hour and it will not load.

I have tried using Hirens boot CD (USB) to load Mini windows xp, but that does exactly the same. I can load Linux from the usb but not windows. However, I have never used Linux so I cannot do anything in Linux to attempt to fix it, as I do not know what I'm doing inside Linux.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Flashing Screen Before Logon Screen

Nov 20, 2012

My PC was working fine before today, until I used Ultra UXtheme patcher for Windows 8 x64 and then applied a custom VS for Windows 8.

After a restart, Windows Explorer was not launching, so I opened task manager and did a sfc /scannow. After a reboot, I get to the Windows 8 boot menu (I have a dual-boot on this HDD with win7), and then the screen just turns on and off every few seconds, with the numlock light flickering with the screen.

I tried using the automatic repair, both from the boot menu and from a backup USB, but it does not detect anything. and I still have the same issue.

I restored the backups of uxtheme.dll, uxinit.dll, and themeui.dll, but that didn't work either.

Attached is my ntbtlog.txt.

There is no BSOD, the HDD keeps on spinning a few minutes after boot, and the numlock keeps on flashing. Anything else I can do from my win7 install? I'm currently trying to delete the theme.

Deleting the theme doesn't work, safemode doesn't work either. It seems to be a driver issue, but there were no driver updates when it was working?

In device manager set all usb hubs to not switch off power but can't think of anything else to do.

Tablets :: Aspire R7 Laptop / Windows 8.1 - Touch Screen Not Working?

Jan 3, 2014

My touch screen to my Aspire R7 laptop is no longer working. I got a notification about there not being enough power reaching the USB port, and it stopped working after that. I'm not connected to the internet, so it's not a bad update, but I don't know what the problem is, or how to fix it. When I go to PC Info, it says "No pen or touch input is available for this display" which I know is not true because I've been using it's touch screen the entire time I've had it.

a common problem is that the drivers aren't updated. I don't think this is my problem as I haven't installed any updates today (I haven't been connected to the internet) and it's been working fine prior to just now.

The battery is fully charged (and was at 50% when I got the notification), so the power shouldn't be an issue.

Specs:
Acer Aspire R7-572
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5
Windows 8.1

Touch Screen Is Reversed?

Jan 31, 2013

Installed it on a Fusion Garage JooJoo tablet that has a Intel Atom N270 cpu, Nvidia ION graphics, 128gb SSD, and 4gb memory. I have everything working on it accept for the accelorometer and the touch screen is reversed (i touch the top right and it touches the bottom left).

I've tried calibrating it through windows and all that does is cause the touch input to go completely crazy. I have tried multiple drivers and the only one that even remotely works is the eGalax driver but that causes the touch screen to be seen as a mouse which makes the swipe gestures impossible as well as the built in touch keyboard won't come up anymore.

I'm not worried about the accelorometer as I can just change the orientation in the nvidia control panel if need be. However having a tablet without a fully functional touch screen is pretty much useless.

The touch screen shows up in Device Manager as an HID device.

Device HIDVID_0EEF&PID_720C&Col016&25a26708&2&0000 was configured.

Driver Name: input.inf

How To Get Rid Of Touch Screen Hints On Desktop

Nov 25, 2013

I'm on a desktop, so I don't want to get any of those hints of what wonderful things I could do if this was on a touchscreen.

why would it show these things on a non-touchscreen anyway?!

I can not click this away! Can't work like this.

Is there some setting to disable these hints and the sidebars that slide in from left and right?

Tablets :: Win 8.1 - Lenovo Flex 10 Touch Screen Becomes Unresponsive

Apr 19, 2014

I think this may relate to updating this netbook from Win 8 to 8.1 (but I updated very soon after purchasing so not certain). Basically after several minutes of use, the Touchscreen doesn't respond to touch anymore. I can still use trackpad but no touchscreen.

I have installed latest updates (and drivers from Lenovo site), but still no joy. I've also tried recalibrating touch screen (via Control Panel app) but this hasn't worked (and "reset" option is greyed out).

Thinkpad X61 Tablet - Touch Keyboard Automatic Screen Resize

Nov 27, 2012

I have a Thinkpad X61 Tablet. It was running Windows 7 Ultimate before I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro. When I invoked the Touch Keyboard in Desktop mode, the window would automatically resize as I type (i.e. window on top, keyboard below). However, this weekend I performed a clean install of Windows 8 since I wasn't happy with some of the quirks from an upgrade. Now, I can no longer get the automatic screen resize when I initiate the Touch Keyboard (i.e. window stays behind keyboard, making it hard to see what I am typing). Are there settings I need to change? Is it something that was carried over from Windows 7 during my upgrade but I deleted it with my clean install?

Update: Just figured out how to get the automatic resize. You have to maximize the Touch Keyboard. I guess I must have been using it in maximized form without realizing it.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8.1 Pro Hangs On Restart Screen

Jul 13, 2014

While I am not new to Windows 8, I am new to Windows 8.1 Pro. First I installed 8.1 Pro from a dvd, restarted it, no problems... then installed the updates, then when I restart, it hangs on restart screen.... So I have to reboot.

I got fed up doing that so I formatted the hard drive, installed windows 8 Pro, tested restarting....no problems... then updated, no restart hangup... then upgraded to 8.1 pro...still no restart hanging...

Installed all updates, still no hangup...installed Soundblaster drivers...still no restart issues...then installed Creative Console launcher....now it is back to hanging on restart screen....

If I uninstall Creative console software, it still sticks on restart screen....it's like windows got messed up by installing software but even tho I uninstalled, still have the restart screen hangup...

Setup Installation :: Upgraded To Windows 8 - Got Black Screen After Restart?

Jan 1, 2013

The laptop I have is an ASUS g74, I purchased the copy of windows 8 from microsoft's site, upgrading from windows 7 pro. I opted to keep all my personal files/apps because the programs it warned me as being incompatible were random games and such.

I googled this problem, and it seemed fairly common months ago when windows 8 first came out on dell/HP laptops. It worked flawlessly when I first upgraded and booted up fine but once I restarted I couldn't see anything other than the screen occasionally flickering brighter and darker.

However, if I plug my laptop up to a TV with an HDMI cable I can see everything on the TV. It's just the laptop screen that is blank.

I installed windows 8 to my machine. it has intel hd graphics. I can install it fine but once i try boot Windows 8 the screen goes black (screen is actually off).

Setup Installation :: When Installing Windows 8 It Boots To A Black Screen

Feb 25, 2014

I am trying to install windows 8.1 on my old windows xp laptop using a bootable USB from the universal USB installer, and when i press f10 on my laptop, and tell it to boot from my USB, it pulls up a black screen with a blinking line(like a terminal). i tried pressing a bunch of keys, and the only one that i got a response from was the enter key, which made a beeping noise.should i use a different program to put the ISO on my USB?

I'm going to try a program that i used a long time ago when the UUI wasn't working called Rufus. I'll let you all know if it works. Also I'll set it to NTFS instead of fat32 and see if that works.

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 Hangs / Freezes Splash Screen

Oct 31, 2012

I am having trouble installing windows 8 on my PC. So I slow burnt the ISO as I always do, and verified the contents. Now I always do a clean install never an upgrade. When I boot from DVD I get to the windows 8 logo and my DVD drive and hard drive seem to be loading files (although this edition has no load progress bar like the previous windows which is annoying) after several seconds i get the animation of the dots twisting but there's no activity?

The disc stops reading the hdd does nothing and the splash screen continuously mocks me it just doesn't get past that screen. After several attempts I thought I could try an upgrade from desktop instead. After a successful upgrade my pc reboots and gets stuck on that same splash screen it just doesn't want to get past that screen. I have looked all over the forums and googled various keywords to find others with this problem and have had no luck. It is noteworthy to mention that windows 7 runs perfectly with no problem on my PC and I am attempting to install the 32bit version I have tried widows 8 an windows 8 pro with no luck

My specs are as follows

HP Compact Presario SR1719UK
-AMD Athlon 64 3400+ 2.20ghz
-1GB DDR RAM
-ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series (Approx total memory is 287MB)
-PHEONIX - AWARD BIOS v6.00
-DirectX 11 with WDDM 1.0 driver
