- I've tried many recovery paths. BCDedit, bcdboot, fixboot, Windows 8 & 8.1 recovery media. For all of these I think I am either doing them wrongly or I get an error message that says it can't access/edit the bit where Windows 8.1 preview is.
- On a different drive I have a copy of Windows 8 that I used to clone to the other harddrive (now containing crashed 8.1 preview) over a year ago. They are unrelated I believe.
- There's a suspicious lack of Windows related folders on the D: drive containing the crashed Windows 8.1. D:windows doesn't exist and D:WINDOWS only contains one folder: "logs". The other folders such as "program files" are all locked.
I recently installed a new GTX660 Ti GPU, but I am now experiencing a major issue with the sleep function. Whilst I am able to sleep the PC, when I try to wake it, nothing really happens. I hear the "device disconnected" sound and then nothing for at least 2 minutes before it automatically restarts.
Once it eventually boots, a message appears saying "Windows experienced a problem and had to shut down" (owtte)
I have attached a screenshot from WhoCrashed.
I have obviously tried installing new drivers, resetting the GPU etc but to no avail.
I have strange network problem these days. I have a desktop PC and installed Windows 8.1. And I have a LAN. The gateway IP address is 192.168.2.1.
The network works fine when I start the PC. I can access Internet with IE, I can access the config pages of my gateway and I can SSH my local File server. It's a synology ds212j. I assigned static IP address 192.168.2.18 to it and name it as "home_ds". I add dns entry in file "hosts".
But there will be very strange problems if the PC keeps running about 2/3 days. It seems I can't connect to other computers from my PC. No IE, no SSH, no ftp.... But ping still work. These is no network device listed in my network folder. But I still can access the mapped network drives.
For example, I can ping www.google.com, I can ping 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.2.18 and "home_ds".

But when I try to telnet and ssh, all failed.
I tried: telnet www.google.com 80 telnet 192.168.2.1 80 telnet 192.168.2.18 22 all failed.
I tied putty, msn, outlook,... all failed. But my wife's PC works normally at the same time.
In the network folder, there should be a list of all my network devices, including my wife's PC and my File server. But it's empty if this problem happens. However I can add them mannually and I can access the network drives.
And I can connect to my PC from my wife's PC with remote desktop.
If I logout and login again, the network will recover except 1 new problem. That is I can't access the network drives of my File Server with computer name "home_ds", but IP address works. And I can ping it with computer name.

A restart will solve both the above 2 problems. But I don't want to restart my PC so frequently.
I tried to solve this problem by update windows and drivers but failed.
My laptop automatically updated to Windows 8.1 and now my HP wireless printer is not recognized.
Even if I plug it in to the USB port, it's like it won't even find the printer. I don't even hear the sound that the printer is plugging in. I have tried several USB ports and yes, the ports are working as I have tried other hardware in them.
I have a Canon i9100 printer which worked great through XP, Vista and Win 7....Canon provided updated drivers.. However, for 8.1, Canon does not provide a driver for this printer. Is there another source which makes a generic driver for this printer so it does not become obsolete?
Epson WF 2540 keeps going offline every time my Dell XPS 13 running Windows 8 goes to sleep. Am looking to see what I need to change in the software to keep this from happening. It will go back online after sometime or I have to go and turn it off to get it back online.
i has install my printer (HP Laserjet P1102) and using that with no problem. But, Suddenly i want to print my file but there are message say the printer isn't installed on my windows. Now, i want to install my printer but there are message "There are no more endpoint available from the endpoint mapper".
I have a hp laptop and a hp 5510 photo smart printer and when I put the disk in to install it I get the following message.
The computer does not meet the following system requirements The operating system of this computer is not supported. This software can only be installed on the computers running the following windows operating systems.
1) Windows xp with service pack 2 2)windows vista 3) Windows 7
Upgrade the operating system of this computer or install this software on another computer system.
Now before I reinstalled windows 8, I did install this disk before. and it does the same with the usb in or out, Yet it will print with the usb in but I cannot get it to print with the wireless function with the usb out,
I installed an HP Office Jet J4580 in Windows 8.1. It works fine.
However when I go to 'Devices and Printers' and right click on that printer (it is the only printer I installed), it shows a drop down box with three Office Jet J4500 Series. I can select any one of them and they all work, for instance when I print a test page.
Screenshot of the dropdown list: View image: Printer properties
It bugs me that there are 3 listings of that one printer.
I have been having an issue in Photoshop selecting a printer. I have already gone to Printers and Devices and set my laser printer as the default printer. However, every once in a while, the default goes away in favor of the One Note 2010 printer. I would like to delete the Fax, One Note 2010, and Microsoft XPS Document Writer printers hoping that Photoshop will realize which is my default printer.
I have Acrobat Pro to make Pdf's. I am running Windows 8 Home.
When I tried to add the printer the dialogue shows the printer I want to connect to. Then says that I need to download the HP drivers to my computer. When I say yes a message comes up that says I can't connect to the printer with an error code of 0x000003e3.
I have installed windows 8 consumer preview.I have also installed my printer drivers and they installed correctly, but problem is that my printer can't print anything(test page also).My printer is HP Laser-jet 1020.
When trying to print from Devices "charm" in Microsoft Reader, my default printer is not shown. It shows up in Printers on the desktop. Reader does show, however, a fax version of my printer, which is NOT installed. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the printer....no change.
I'm using a HP Officejet 7310 printer, which has the most current driver, and works in all other Windows apps.
When I turn my HP LaserJet CP1215 on, on a fresh install of Win 8 Preview the Printer Driver loading icon appears on the taskbar and the green shade goes across as if it's installing correctly. Looking in Control Panel/Printers and devices shows the printer installed and the properties shows the device is working correctly.
However when I try to print in any application no printer is shown, and trying to add a printer runs through the search and finds nothing.
I have several printers at work all hooked up to a samba share so that the whole office can use them. We have Konica Minolta, HP and Lexmarks predominantly but some other brands as well like Kyocera.
I have a fresh Win 8.1 Pro install and i have installed the printer drivers via the Windows update mechanism for all the printers. Some i've added via the samba share some via direct ip connection.
For whatever reason i cannot add/delete or config any of the printer ports as seen in the attached screen cap. I've even tried the windows Administrator account to no avail. UAC is off and i have admin rights to the pc.
I have sought support on freenode's #windows channel and googled the hell out of this topic, to avail.
I'm trying to discover my Wi-Fi enabled printer (Brother MFC-J425W) by trying to plug in the ip address of the printer manually. I am currently using this online reference - How to install a Standard TCP/IP Printer on Windows 8? - Welcome to TP-LINK - to go through the particular process. When I open up the advanced printer setup window in the hardware & sound category of the control panel, it starts searching for printers and then freezes on that task. I cannot press the next, cancel, or quit ('x') button at the top right of the screen. This is a brand new laptop that I just got in today with some top of the line hardware for its class, and I am currently connected wirelessly to the same network that the printer is on, so there should be no issue as far as I'm aware of on the discovery of the printer.
Last night two updates from MS, KB2919355 & KB2961887 were installed. Today the driver for my Epson R3000 printer was gone. Windows 8/8.1 seems to have a problem with this printer, even though Epson claims it is compatible and provides updated drivers. When I updated from Windows 8 to 8.1, it replaced my Epson drivers is a very basic MS generic driver. I had to manually install the Epson drivers again. That was a pain, and took several attempts. Is there a recommended way to install a driver that works?
I have just set up two new laptops running windows 8, and can successfully share files, and the printer connected to one of them, but I would like to also connect my laptop running Vista to be able to print. I can see both Windows 8 machines in file manager/devices on the Vista machine, but if I try to connect it asks for a username and password.
I haven't been able to work out what username it is looking for - tried a lot of combinations for each PC name with the homegroup password and log on passwords, but nothing seems to work.
