Windows 8 Pro X64 - Computer Time Keeps Jumping Forward

Oct 10, 2013

Windows 8 Pro x64.

For reasons I can't explain, the time on my computer keeps randomly jumping forward, usually several times a day, in 10-30 minute increments. I go in and re-sync it to the internet time servers each time I notice, but it just changes randomly again a little bit later. The time.windows.com server usually returns the message "An error occurred while Windows was synchronizing with time.windows.com. This operation returned because the timeout period expired.", the other servers sometimes the same, sometimes no problem. The other computers on my network don't seem to have any problems.

How can I stop this happening?

Laptop Keeps Jumping From Desktop To Interface?

Sep 18, 2013

I've got this problem with my new laptop, where if I do something with the touchpad (I'm not sure what the exact movement is, but it keeps happening when I'm trying to select things), Windows 8 will jump into the new interface screen.

Is there any way to turn this function off? I've got a button on the keyboard to switch to the interface, so I don't need this particular touchpad function, and it's more of a hindrance than a support.

Dell :: E5530 / Cursor Jumping On Documents?

Mar 1, 2013

is there a way to turn off the voluntary cursor jumping. I am typing, my cursor is 2 sentences above where I actually want to type. It takes me forever to type anything because I always have to be cautious of where my cursor is resting, so it doesn't move me and have me typing in random places in a document or email. Quite often I have to double click on my touchpad to certify my cursor has not jumped to another place in my document.

I have a Dell E5530 laptop using Win 8. I use Open Office for document writing.

Windows 8 Laptop Turning Itself Off?

May 24, 2013

I am currently running with a HP 15.6" Envy Laptop PC, Midnight Black, dv6-7229wm - Walmart.com I have not had problems before. While I was playing Diablo 3, on medium settings, the thing just cut out. The first time, i didn't think anything about it. I turned it back on, and it turned off again twice during the HP boot logo. So i took out the battery, waited a little and started playing Diablo 3 again, and in about half an hour it turns itself off again. Each time it turns off, there is the pop of the audio going out. So, i turned MSI after burner on (I have not over clocked this system, I just have MSI to watch the heat when I was messing around one day)

Anyway, here are the last three temperature logs from MSI afterburner before it turned itself off.

02, 24-05-2013 15:09:13, GPU1 temperature ,GPU2 temperature ,GPU3 temperature ,GPU1 usage ,GPU2 usage ,GPU3 usage ,GPU1 core clock ,GPU2 core clock ,GPU3 core clock ,GPU1 memory clock ,GPU2 memory clock ,GPU3 memory clock ,GPU1 memory usage ,GPU2 memory usage ,GPU3 memory usage 80,

[Code] .....

The log isn't coming out how I wanted to, but it was about 95-99 for all of it. I am playing on a table (As level as a table can be on a 40 year old brick floor), with nothing anywhere near the laptop.

So I've never seen how 2 apps snapped look when using a tablet in portrait mode. All I seem to see is landscape snapped apps. So can this even be done on a tablet.

It looks rather useful, but not sure if it can be used in landscape and portrait?

It was very upsetting in case of Windows 7 the system explorer was unable to retrive folder size information. It was possible to preview file size in detail view but not folder size.

How is this feature in case of Winodws 8 explorer. Is the appropriate hook exposed in API or is it still missing as it was in case of Winodws 7?

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.1 - AMD Feature Manager Context Menu Option

Feb 12, 2014

I have windows 8.1 and downloading the 13.12 Drivers gave me this program called "AMD Feature Manager". It has a green AMD logo and shows up when I right click anywhere in the desktop, right under "AMD Catalyst Control Center". Whenever I click on it - the program just loads AMD CCC. It seems pretty redundant to include this since I have "AMD Catalyst Control Center" right above it that does the same exact thing. Is there registry edit that can get rid of the option in the Context Menu or can I just uninstall it completely?

Is there a registry edit that can get rid of "AMD Feature Manager" Context Menu option or uninstall it?

Feb 21, 2014

I was playing Battlefield 4 for about 15 minutes, after I was finished I closed the game and my PC just died, as if I got a blue screen without the actual blue screen, fan speed of psu went to max and stayed that way until I restarted it multiple times, none of those times did it actually boot or display anything on the monitor.

Now when I start up my pc it turns on but nothing happens, display doesn't even come on and keyboard and mouse light up and turn off again.

Apps / Software :: Add Some Feature To Applications?

May 19, 2013

I just installed Windows 8 a few days ago. It took some time to put together the partitions and programs I wanted to install on my new SSD and set up the external storage drive with my old hard drive, but it was totally worth the effort. I love the operating system and how it works with my desktop and hardware. It boots quickly, the themes are aesthetically pleasing, and access to everything is far easier to navigate.

However, I do have some issues with the Metro Menu / Applications. I have downloaded several applications, notably Twitter and Skype. Those two applications have been snapped into the left side of my screen. While they are useful and important to me, what troubles me is that I don't have a copy / cut function for either application.

Is there a way to add that feature to both applications? I would much rather avoid the clutter of a desktop Skype program or view Twitter via Google Chrome.

Security :: Avast Turning Off USB Ports

Mar 23, 2014

Problem with Avast turning off USB ports?

After weeks of stable computer use, I tried using Avast once again, but I noticed when I restarted, my USB mouse no longer worked. I moved it to another USB slot and it worked, so I didn't worry about it.

Then today, I noticed that the two front USB slots on my computer weren't reading anything. I remembered this problem started when I started using Avast, so I uninstalled Avast and presto, I regained usage of my USB ports upon reboot.

How to keep AVAST from turning off the ports? I couldn't see anything on google offhand. If not, I may just go back to Windows Defender.

Laptop Going Into Standby Instead Of Turning Off Display

Nov 9, 2013

I've upgraded to windows 8.1 a few days ago through a custom install as I was running windows 8 x86 and wanted to switch to x64. I've also just updated the BIOS.

After the upgrade though, my laptop goes into sleep/standby and locks the screen instead of turning off the display as I have it set. So, if I edit any power plan settings to turn off the display after 2 minutes, it will go to sleep after 2 minutes.

Metro Interface - Power Off Feature

Oct 5, 2013

I've installed StartMenuReviver which I find an excellent program. I've noticed that when I use the standard power off feature of the Metro interface that power is still present on (my) USB ports as witnessed by USB speakers still on and USB mouse still glowing (multi-coloured lighting inbuilt)

IF I use the power off feature of the StartmenuReviver app then I truly power off; speaker on light goes off as does the lighting feature of the mouse.

Obviously a complete shutdown is preferable so I turn off using the StartMenuReviver app. Is their a reason the Metro app doesn't fully shut down PC ??
