Spell Checking Do Not Work (red Underlining)

Jul 11, 2013

Spell checking do not work on Firefox in the Windows 8 x64. I mean back when I was using Win XP (for 10 years), the spell checking worked in every browser. I am talking about that red underlining appearing when a word is misspelt. Been using Windows 8 x64 for two month now and didn't see that working on latest FF.

Use Proxy Server For LAN Keeps Checking Itself

Apr 4, 2014

recently my tiles like the Windows 8 Store, Kindle Reader and Xbox One Smartglass won't connect to the internet. I did some research and found that it was because the "Use a proxy server for LAN" keeps checking itself. Once I un-check this they work, but not long after that box automatically checks itself again.

8.1 Laptop Stuck On Checking For Updates

Nov 16, 2013

Turned on my laptop earlier, and tried checking for updates. Saw around 250MB worth of updates, clicked install, and Windows Update locked up shortly afterwards. Restarted Explorer, and Windows Update still wasn't working, so I rebooted.

Tried checking for updates again, and now I'm stuck on that screen (the progress bar moves, but it's seemingly not finding updates).

What caused WU to freeze. My desktop (set up in basically the same exact way) handled it fine. I tried a Disk Cleanup (to cleanup WU files) and a reboot to no avail.

How To Skip Checking For Updates During Win 8.1 Install

Sep 13, 2013

When I'm installing Win 8.1 Pro, it starts automatically "Checking for Updates" near the end of install process. That is before getting to Windows Start screen/Desktop.

I'm using a autounattend.xml file, but didn't find a way to skip "Checking for Updates" yet. It is the only answer I could not automate. Trying to do that without user intervention. Just by means of autounattend.xml file.

Win 8 Dual Boot 2xSSDs - Checking / Repairing Drives On Bootup

Jul 21, 2014

I have Windows 8 installed on 2 Samsung SSDs - one is 840 Pro and the other is 840 Evo. This is because I work on both video and music production and would like to keep things separate.

At first I tried cloning an "old" SSD on to both Pro and Evo to make life easy, but it was a total mess:

I would boot Windows 8 on either Evo or Pro, and before the password prompt, Windows would fire up a Checkdisk on one (or more) of the 5 HD I have (please find the logs and disklayout in the attachments).

This would usually happen if for eg, I'm working on Evo and then I restart to work on Pro - or vice-versa.

But sometimes I would be working on either one of them, and this flag notification would popup asking me to restart because Windows needs to perform a diskcheck.

What is strange to me is that if I do a manual diskcheck (right-click -> Properties -> Tools), it would complete it, the notification disappears but would return a second or two later.

There was a minor issue where for eg, some options in the Control Panel were still pointing to drive H: which before the cloning, was my original C: drive.

Otherwise all software was working perfectly fine.

So I decided to do a clean re-install on both Pro and Evo hoping to solve this diskcheck issue once and for all.

This was 10 days ago, and for the past 10 days I had used almost exclusively the Evo drive. Today I need to work on Pro but Windows wouldn't get past the diskcheck and on to the password prompt.

It's saying "Preparing for Repair", then changes to "Diagnosing your PC" but then this blue screen pops up asking me to choose between Shut Down or Advanced Options.

This happened on rare occasions, but before the fresh install, I would do this perhaps a couple of times in a row (i.e. go to the blue screen Advanced Options and click Exit and Continue to Windows 8) restart, and it would eventually go past the diskcheck and allow me to log in and work. But today it just won't do it.

EDIT: I don't know if it matters but as it is now, it automatically boots up on Pro unless I hit F12 and choose to boot on Evo. But as I said earlier I had only been using Evo for the past 10 days since the re-install.

Attached please find the Srt logfiles which I found by following a path shown to me on that blue screen.

The strange thing is that the path started with drive H: and why drive H: and not C: (i.e. the Pro drive, being the current Windows boot drive). But when I booted on Evo, and went on drive J: (the drive letter that Pro is assigned when I'm on Evo), I found the logfiles there.

Dell XPS 12 Running Windows 8 X64 - Disk Checking Endless Loop

May 18, 2013

Dell XPS 12 running Windows 8 x64. Had it for about six weeks, and I had two problems I with it:

- every so often (maybe once a week), when I would turn it on, instead of booting into my normal startup screen, it would say 'Preparing Windows', then boot into, like, a generic account with none of my programs or files or anything... shutting down and restarting fixes that problem. A little annoying, but no big deal.

- every so often (maybe twice a week), I I'd shut it down, and I'd get the BSOD, with 'SESSION_HAS_VALID_POOL_ON_EXIT' given as the problem. I bit of Googling seemed to reveal that this was a fairly common issue with Wi8 on this particular machine, so I never worried too much about it.

I'm describing these problems because they might shed light on the NEWEST problem, which is as follows:

Did a Windows 8 update yesterday, and today I discovered that when I turn the machine on, I get 'To skip disk checking, press any key within 1 second' at the Dell startup screen... I didn't press anything, but it didn't seem to go into disk-check, booting normally into Windows instead. I tried to do a disk check, and right away, it told me 'Windows has found problems with your disk', telling me I had to restart to fix them... so I did, and got the same 'To skip disk checking...' message, followed by an immediate boot into Windows instead of any disk checking. I tried to do a system restore, thinking one of the updates might be causing the problem, but when I try to do a system restore, it tells me that I have to run check-disk first (but every time I do, I get the same routine I just described above).

Dell Inspiron Running Windows 8 - No Boot Device Found / Checking Media Fail

Apr 3, 2014

My (12-year-old) son's computer won't boot. It's a Dell Inspiron 17" running Windows 8, bought from Costco in July 2013. When I turn it on, Dell logo comes on and then in upper left it says "Checking Media [fail]", then "checking media" again, then "No Boot Device Found. Press any key to reboot the machine". I insert a USB recovery drive (it was made for my Toshiba that runs Windows 8.1, but it should work anyway, right?).

I choose US keyboard layout and it then opens into Recovery Environment. I choose Troubleshoot → Refresh Your PC. Message appears "The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again." I go to Troubleshoot → Startup Repair, which runs and then says "Startup Repair couldn't repair your PC." I then go back to Troubleshoot → Command Prompt and run chkdsk on Windows drive (c). It says "Windows has checked the file system and found no problems." Dell would probably tell me it's a hard drive failure and tell me to buy another one.

Hardware Drivers :: Mouse Won't Work Now Touchscreen Won't Work

Feb 18, 2014

Windows update has been really messing with my pc lately. I ran update and when it installed the updates my integrated mouse ended up not working. I rolled back update and installed the updates one by one and the one I ended up not installing was the camera codec pack. Now the problem I am having is that my touchscreen won't work. If I talk to HP support they do the most basic thing they can and then when they can't fix it they tell me that I have to ship it to them because hardware is broken.

Updates :: Checking For Updates Hangs After Disk Clean Up

Mar 22, 2014

When I run Check for Updates it just hangs. It says it is checking for updates and green progress bar is repeatedly running across, but nothing happens.

Before this problem arose I had just run disk clean-up including remove installation files and windows updates. The disk clean-up process removed about 59 GB including a large Windows.old folder.

I upgraded to Windows 8 from XP about 10 days ago. Windows update was working fine until the disk clean-up. I ran Check for Updates frequently after the upgrade to make sure I got all the updates, it worked perfectly well for both update and install.

I have tried Checking for Updates several times since running disk clean-up.

First time I ran it I had this error message: Windows Update error 0x8024a000 (only seen that one time)

I ran the Update Troubleshooter after that and it found/fixed the following:

Potential windows update database error detected 0x80070490 -Fixed
Windows update components must be fixed - fixed

The troubleshooter did not resolve the issue. I have run Check for Updates many times since with no more error messages, but it just hangs. When I run the Update troubleshhooter it fixes the same two issues as above.

Since the disk clean, Windows Update shows:

Most recent check for updates - Never
Updates were installed - Never.

As my Windows Updates were previously all succesfully installed, the history must have been cleared.

No error messages have been seen since that first one which has not repeated.

Apps / Software :: 8.1 - Windows Apps Don't Work For One User But Work For Others

Jul 27, 2014

I have 3 user accounts.

1. Administrator
2. initial user
3. new user

So the initial user is the one you are forced to create when first setting up Windows 8.1. It's a local user meaning that I set it up without signing into a MSA.

In both the Administrator and the initial user, all the WinRT apps/tiles work. Like the weather will show up and everything.

Whether I change the Initial User to Standard or Administrator, everything still works fine. Of course, the Administrator can't open WinRT apps which is standard and normal. And the initial user can't use apps without signing into MSA. But it all still works perfectly fine.

The problem is with the new user. The new user is meant to be in Administrator mode because it's my main account. But whether I set it up as Standard or Administrator, it's the same thing. None of my WinRT apps work.

Even when I sign into my MSA with the new user, it's still the same thing. It synchronizes to my OneDrive online. It recognizes that I'm completely signed in online. Yet it's still the exact same thing with the WinRT apps. None of them work. Even when I try to open up the Windows Store. It just continues to try to open, but doesn't go all the way through. So whether I'm signed into my MSA for the third user or not, it still gives the same problem.

I ran Windows Update, and it worked perfectly. Everything is up to date.

System Restore Did Not Work?

Jun 30, 2013

Win8 Control Panel Empty-My Docs-Library problem

A system restore did not work. PC "refresh" did not work. I've done a number of checks/scans (CHKDSK/ ScanDisk , sfc /scannow, Windows Defender, TDSSKILLER, and Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit) without any threats/errors occurring (I know it's not an exhaustive list.). I'm at my wits' end.

Simply, I understand that "reset" (Reset Windows 8) supposedly (and I'll get to why I say that) removes everything and reinstalls.

Assuming this is a copy of the Windows 8 that was originally activated the first day I used my computer, I should be by the above definition be able to go back and rebuild what had been a system without this problem for about five months (length of time since purchased, approx.). I also have burned recovery DVDs from the first day of use.

There must have been a reason that "Refresh" didn't work. Is this Reset as good as the old reinstallation from discs that I'd done, for example, on XP in the past? Do I need to wipe everything or can I just do the quick (just remove files, not fully clean) reset?

I can't imagine anything outside of the OS causing my situation. Is there any way with "Reset" (assuming not an OS issue alone) that the problem can migrate to the new "installation?" I've never updated the BIOS or any such thing.

Can't Get Reset To Work - Missing A Partition

Mar 24, 2013

I am trying to run a reset in Windows 8. However, after rebooting into WinRE, it says that it can't reset because I am missing a required partition.

I searched for a solution to this problem. But, it looks like most people who see this error have accidentally deleted some Windows partitions. In my case, I have not altered the Windows partitions since original install.

I read another comment that suggested that it's due to the hd driver being missing and that I would have to "inject" the correct driver into winre. But, I'm not sure how to do that (or if that is really the fix).

Properties Option In Menus Not Work Normally?

Jan 17, 2014

First of all I want to say that this is not much big of a deal to me but still annoying nonetheless. I noticed that in some scenarios, for some reason, the "Properties" option in the rightclick menu of a file doesn't do anything when clicked on. You'd expect that a properties box of the concerning file would show up but nothing is happening. So far I noticed this in the following 2 scenarios:

1. When selecting multiple files in the Recycle Bin at once and then right click and choose Properties. Selecting only one file in the recycle bin and clicking Properties does work normally.
2. When right clicking on a picture that is shown with Windows Photo Viewer and then choosing Properties.

Are these bugs that Microsoft developers might have missed or is my PC at fault here? I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro x64 with Medica Center.
