Start Button Stopped Working

Aug 20, 2014

When I try clicking the start button, it doesn't work. I move my mouse to the right side of the screen, and the bar doesn't come up. Same with moving my mouse to the top left corner of the screen. I checked the properties by right clicking the task bar. The corner navigation options are checked off to show them when I move my mouse to the different corners.

Computer Won't Start Anymore - HDMI Stopped Working

Oct 24, 2013

Yesterday I came home and my computer wouldn't start anymore. nothing happenened so I figured it was my "feeding" (in case this is a weird translation: what I mean is the power distribution)

So I bought a new one, hooked up all the plugs, well not all.

Computer works again, but my hdmi cable stopped working on my tv. I tried hooking up my monitor (which normally runs on dvi) but that also didn't work.

Is it possible i forgot a plug?

Windows 8.1 - System Restore Button Is Not Working

Sep 15, 2014

This button is not working. The window doesnt hang. There is no error message. It just doesnt say anything. I am trying to install Visual Studio 2013. It needs to create a system restore point before starting installation. Needless to say, it fails too. I am on Windows 8.1. I ran sfc /scannow with no results.

Windows Start Button Is Gone

Dec 21, 2013

Today I upgraded to Windows 8.1 (I think that's the version). I was pretty much forced to do the update. Now, my start button is completely gone and replaced with something that takes me to the Windows 8 screen, which I absolutely hate, because I can't control anything on it. I have installed a utility that let's me use the desktop, and it basically looks like Windows 7, which worked perfectly fine. It seems like all my apps are gone and this new button is linked only to the Windows 8 screen. How can I get my Windows 7 profile back?

Disable Start Button In 8.1?

Jun 30, 2013

I have my taskbar pinned to the left side of the screen, and it seems there is no way to disable the start button.

If I have the start button in the top left corner (which is fine - I can deal with it), the start charm shouldn't still be available in the bottom left. If I don't have the start button, than the charm is fine.

Why can't we turn off the start button? What was MS thinking with this setup? It's totally useless unless you keep their taskbar on the bottom!

Perfect Way To Fix The Start Button?

Aug 8, 2012

Why doesn't Microsoft just remake the start menu with 2 sides, one to open the classic windows 7 start menu. And the other one to open the Metro UI. Honestly it seems to be the best way to do it I like using both although can't live with out the old start menu.

Desktop Button On The Start Screen?

May 10, 2013

Is there a way to make the desktop button/tile/link to the desktop on the start screen to be a different image besides what is really on your desktop screen?

For example, lets say I want a photo of deep space on my tile desktop button, but don't want that image as my desktop screen. Just the tile.

Audio :: Keyboard Mute Button Not Working In New User Account

Feb 4, 2014

I created a new user account on my PC (running Win 8.1), and the mute button on my wireless keyboard does not work on the new account. Pressing the mute button causes "Mute" or "Unmute" to appear on the screen briefly, but the sound does not mute or un-mute. The volume up and down buttons work, and if I log into my old user account the mute button still works there. It only doesn't work in the new account.

Maintenance :: Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working?

Sep 15, 2014

About two weeks ago I began to notice strange behavior on my PC which made me think it may be a virus. Some examples:

1. When I'm online a message window frequently appears stating "internet explorer has stopped working"

2. Some websites do not display adverts on the page. I've attached a screenshot from youtube to illustrate what I'm referring to.

3. Some webpages will not load. I keep seeing "webpage under maintenance at this time". This is typical for websites at certain times but to see it every time I try to access is suspicious.

4. I use Hotmail and typically the first time I start it up in the day I notice that the first email I open causes the entire page to go blank as if it erases everything on it, it then reopens with all of my emails listed and finally the email I began to read will reopen. This only happens after I boot my system and open the first email. This will not happen on any other computer.

5. I seem to be having issues installing certain programs. They won't install citing various reasons such as outdated files, incompatible etc. These were all working flawlessly prior to reformatting my system.

6. I'm unable to post messages even though I'm logged in. When I type a message I see the timer cycling but it never posts my messages, it's as if it's stuck in a loop or frozen.

Having felt that a system reformat was in order I did just that not more than a week ago. Everything was reinstalled and updated. Once all the Windows 8 files were installed I began to notice the exact same problems surfacing immediately. I'm currently using Win 8 with IE 10. 16 GB RAM, 64 bit OS. The computer itself is an HP and a year old.

Windows Shell Common DLL Has Stopped Working

Dec 24, 2013

I was trying to adjust my recording volume settings and realised that I couldn't access them at all. I can access volume mixer, recording devices and playback devices but as soon as I click properties I get an error "windows shell common dll has stopped working" checking for solutions. No solutions are found.

In the event log I have this:
Log Name: Application
Source: Application Error
Date: 24/12/2013 14:45:38
Event ID: 1000
Task Category: (100)
Level: Error

[Code] .....

I have updated the sound drivers and this does not solve the issue.

I have run sfc /scannow and get this error: Windows Resources Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I checked the CBS.log and mmsys.cpl is in the log:

2013-12-24 15:52:11, Info
CSI 000002cc Hashes for file member SystemRootWinSxSamd64_microsoft-windows-mmsys_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.16384_none_4f2e2a4bb3222341mmsys.cpl do not match actual file [l:18{9}]"mmsys.cpl" :

[Code] ......

There are also lots of other files with errors. I think this was caused by my faulty SSD and when I re-imaged back to my new drive, these errors are still present.

Do I need to re-install windows or can I repair install without losing my profile and data? I'd rather repair than re-install.

Tablets :: Surface Pro 2 Touch Stopped Working?

May 7, 2014

We purchased 15 Surface Pro 2 tablets for our School Administrators. Touch did not work for 3 tablet 'out of the box'...or so I thought. Since receiving them, touch has stopped working on 5 more. Each time Microsoft has replaced the device without question so I assumed this was a known issue. However I am now pretty sure it is happening during my imaging process. I am using SCCM 2012, via PXE and/or USB. The Task Sequence completes successfully and all drivers appear to install. I am using the driver package from Microsoft. The stylus works but not touch. I can't complain about the support MS is providing since they replace the device every time but I am sure there must be a fix I have not tried.
