I have a full windows 8.1 tablet (not RT), original and comes with Office too, (got the keys). The internal eMMc is 32GB so I learnt from windows that the recovery partition can be copied to a USB. So I did and windows asked, do I want to delete the recovery partition, so I deleted it to create bigger space.
Now, I have some problem with my windows, virus and stuff, so I wanted to recover from USB. The problem is, how do I make full recover from the USB? Some sites say I cannot do it due to I've changed the partition? What?
On my Dell Latitude 10, when viewing HTML5 YouTube videos in full screen on IE10 in Modern mode, I can't bring up the playback or screen size controls. Tapping the screen shows the title of the video and the share and info icons, but nothing else. I can pinch to zoom the video, and can drag it around a little and see the actual page for the video underneath, but I haven't found a way to actually close full screen mode. When I switch to the Flash version of YouTube everything works as expected, i.e. tapping the screen brings up the controls at the bottom of the video.
A co-worker has a Surface Pro, but I haven't seen how YouTube behaves on that yet to see if it's a problem specific to the Latitude.
if I can install a full version of microsoft office 2007 on an asus me400c. It does not have a usb port but perhaps could put files on sd card but don't know if there is enough space on the hard drive although retailer tell me there is. I want tablet to take whenout of the office for a few days and need to be able to use word.
My computer is a Lenovo Y500 with windows 8. A few weeks ago I heard a friend of mine was having BSOD problems and that his computer stopped booting completely.
I brought my computer over and had a nice time, we were attempting to fix his computer by switching the hard drive out and changing his computer form windows 8 to windows 7. A USB device was used for that step. The USB device was not fully working so it was tested on the BSOD computer AND my fully working computer. His computer was fixed shortly after and began running again.
I took my computer back home and immediately noticed a slow down so I reformatted my computer.....it still seemed really choppy and laggy and froze alot. A day later I begin to get blue screens out the A$$ and eventually it comes to a Automatic repair loop. I had to order a recovery disk because my one key recovery no longer worked. I Ordered the recovery disk and bam my computer seemed to be working again after a long recovery process.
Foolishly I took my computer back to the place it seemed to work fine. Upon coming home again. I begin to notice problems and bam my computer tells me that It is in danger back up files or you may possibly lose them.
Another friend buys a new computer and he takes it to the BSOD house. Guess what he got? The BSOD he was using the flash drive used to add windows 7 to a friends computer to add windows 7 to his new laptop when it happened 6 times in a row. He recovered his computer and it seems to be working fine for now.
However my computer isn't; even after recovering it. While yes, it is moving fast and working great. The computer STILL gives me the warning that i must back up my files and what not. I also tried the CHKDSK in command prompt and it froze on 27% so I stopped it. I checked the D: and C: drives from my computer and going to properties but it said there are no problems.
The program that DOES let me know the problem still persists is the constant reminder telling me that their is a problem with the Device. Also my Intel rapid story device places an exclamation point on the HDD and says that one or more events, and data may be at risk. I do not know what to do...I feel that it is either a virus from the flash drive or possibly a Hardware problem caused by a surge in his house, but if that was true 2 of my other friends laptops would be fried as well.
It seems that this slowly happens over time each time I recover my HDD. The blue screens barely come. Its when I notice Games, and programs malfunction that the blue screen begins to show again.
I've got this Dell tablet and it's touch screen has gone kaput. It works sometimes, it doesn't most of the times. It has gotten worse in the last few days. It only used to do that when resuming from Standby previously.
There is nothing I can do about it from my end. I have contacts Dell support and it seems they will take it back for repairs.
In the meantime, my recovery partition seems to be not working either. I first wanted to factory reset it to see if it is a software issue. (Easier to RMA as well) Dell has their own recovery software called Dell Backup and Recovery and it doesn't work. It would reboot back to Windows 8's recovery environment (F8) and wait there. I have used Recovery once and maybe it screwed up everything. I don't know.
I tried Windows Refresh and Recovery features and they don't work either. Refresh asks me to insert the media .
Recovery tells me that i cannot find a recovery image in my drive.
I have used Refresh many times when the touch screen problem originally appeared, and then it didn't ask for the install media. Seems that it was using the recovery image that was originally in the drive.
Now the recovery image is either missing or inaccessible by any sort of recovery. I tried creating a Recovery media using the Dell Backup and Recovery software and it also stops saying that an error has occurred. How informative.
This is the current state of Disk Management screen. Why are there so many partitions? The right click menu only pops up for C: partition. It's empty for other partitions.
BTW, I have Windows 8.1 Preview installed as well. I have used Refresh few times after that as well. I don't think it has anything to do with the issue. But it would be great if I can reset it back to factory image before sending for RMA.
I have made a System Image & a Custom Recovery Image on my Asus Vivotab but I cannot get the system to recognize them on a USB Hard Drive.
I got into this by testing the Refresh Custom Recovery Image. The system did not find the image as the system allocated a different drive letter so I have basic Refresh. I have found my way to the Administrator Command but cannot find RECIMG on either the x: or C: drives. Do I need a Path Command from System32?
I also have a System image on a USB Hard Drive but cannot get the system to find it. I have tried putting the files folders in the root directory but the system still does not recognise them.
My tablet is running fine, but I did something (not bright) which could leave me in a lurch later. Here's what I did, and what I'm looking for.
Soon after I purchased my Asus VivoTab Smart, I made a USB recovery disk, complete with recovery partition. Then, to save disk space on the tablet, I deleted the recovery partition on the tablet. So far, so good. Where I blew it was when I got my flash drives mixed up and then erased my USB recovery disk! The tablet runs fine, but if I ever want to refresh it or do a reset, I need the recovery partition, either on the tablet or on a flash drive.
If you have a recovery drive - that includes the recovery partition - made on one computer, but have a toshiba laptop with a bad drive (but the recovery partition is ok), can you replace/copy the partition on the recovery drive with the recovery partition from the bad laptop HD?
My friend's laptop would not boot, and would not factory recover, reset, or refresh. I tried to clone the hard drive before I started messing with the disc. It would not clone, but I was able to copy the recovery partition to a USB drive.
He never make recovery discs, so could not re-install, but I can borrow the recovery drive that my aunt made for her laptop.
I am trying to create recovery discs from "Dell backup and Recovery application" however when i was asked to insert the second DVD,the optical drive keeps rejecting the DVD. The application will not continue to burn the second DVD and appears to be frozen. I tried with different brands/makers of DVD and also -/+ R. Unfortunately .Issue remains. I was able to find this article 593906 Published on 2013-01-21 ( relative link [URL]... ).
Although i have done the updates ,i am still not able to create recovery discs !! Current Issue: after inserting the 3rd Disc application gives the following message "Dbr.exe -No disc found" and stays there and rejects the DVD. I spoke with Dell's Greek Support team. I was told that warranty does not cover sw support even if my unit is less than a week old. Furthermore i was informed that although "Dell backup and recovery" application says DELL is not actually a Dell product thus they can't support it. They suggested my to use windows 7 file recovery instead (which needs at least 8 DVDs !).
My C Drive Keeps getting full even though i hardly have anything installed there. most of my games and programs are on drive D and i also moved my "My Documents" Folder to D. Even so, C drive keeps getting full..
My photos (regardless if I view them in metro or a desktop folder) won't fill the entire screen. Instead there is a black bar on the left and right of the photo. How do I make images take up the entire screen? I have a Vaio Tap 20 inch all in one with the latest version of windows 8.
I am having problem with the touch keypad. It is not displaying some buttons such as that of alt, caps , windows key etc. They are all present on the On-screen Keyboard but not on the touch keypad. Although I am using touch keypad without any touch devices, I like the touch keypad more than OSK due to it's sliding feature. How to bring full layout to touch keypad. I think Windows is not providing me any option cause I don't have any touch enabled devices on my PC. How to do it from registry or configuration file or anything like that.
Using Windows 8 Enterprise 64 bit, I have noticed that the full name of a local account (set with the net users "<username>" /fullname:"<full name>" command) is deleted whenever I switch from a Microsoft account to the local account associated with it.
How can we reset the size of the screen that is presented after clicking on a tile in windows 8? I have two monitors and have my desktop going across both monitors the way I like it. However when you click on a windows 8 tile, the screen it brings up fills both monitors. its annoying because whatever I am viewing is centered down the middle of two monitors and trying to read it is awful. I want to be able to set the window size that appears after clicking a tile to be half a screen (only one monitor). How to accomplish this? I know you can go to desktop mode and it will be sized however I like it, but I need to change the size of the windows after clicking the tile.
When watching videos on you tube in full screen, it will leave to normal screen in one min. My drivers are up to date and system do not show any notifications for updates. This problem occurs irrespective of any browser and full screen exits on anything.
I used to have Vista, when I had multiple windows open in an application (and they were combined in the taskbar) the number of windows used to be displayed next to the icon. Now I have Windows 8.1, this feature seems to have disappeared and the only way I can see how many windows are open is to manually count them one-by-one. The only difference when the application combines the windows is that is looks to have 3 windows combined on the right hand side of the application in the taskbar.
Is there any way to get this number back? I think this feature may have been removed from 8.1, but if it has is there a workaround?
It is advisable not to do a full scan for the moment. There was a problem in the latest definition update and in some cases after doing a full scan, if it completes, Windows Defender has been turned off.
Microsoft is aware of the problem and is working on it.

I have a Toshiba Satellite hybrid, with Windows 8, 4GB RAM and 128 SSD hard drive. I have full Microsoft office and very few other programs, there are the Toshiba installed software which I don't use and the windows 8 based 'apps' which I also hardly use.
My 128GB was about 70% full from week one, but now it is almost 100% full, I regularly carry out disk clean up, but I unable to get more than 1GB free on my hard drive, can this be right? How can I resolve this?
I bought a new Sony Vaio laptop with Windows 8 pre-installed couple months ago; and all I have done since was installing just the MS Office and the Antivirus softwares. Now for no apparent reasons it shows the hard drive is full and I can not do anything with it. I've tried to create a system recovery with an USB flash drive, but it won't let me do it either.
