Vertical Scrolling Setting Resets To 1 Randomly Laptop

Mar 7, 2014

Every 20 or so minutes I have to keep going into my mouse settings to change the Verticle Scroll speed back up to 4, up from the default 1. This problem has been occurring since I got this laptop in november last year, and I've been up for 2 and a half hours trying to finally fix this tedious problem, I'm starting to lose hope and it's getting to the point where it makes me not want to even get on the computer. My Dell Touchpad program that came with the computer is always turned off when the mouse is plugged in, so that can't be why.

There are two ways for me to change the scroll speed, by going into the Windows 8 PC Settings>PC & Devices>Mouse & Touchpad, and the mouse properties that are in the control panel. When I change the Mouse & Touchpad settings they change the settings in the mouse properties but not vice-versa.

There is no KH-whatever file in my startup list.

Synaptics drivers for touchpad are up to date, as is the mouse driver.

My mouse is a Engage Optical Mouse, I've had it for about 2 years and I never had a problem with it on my last computer. My current laptop is a Dell Inspiron M531R-5535.

Browsers/Mail :: How To Text Red Shift During Vertical Scrolling

Feb 25, 2014

Text "Red Shift" during vertical scrolling? I've noticed it with Firefox 27.0, Pale Moon 24,3,2, and Operax64 12.14. The text on forums looks normal until I move the vertical scrollbar with the mouse. While the text is moving it takes on a red tint. As soon as the scrolling stops, it reverts to normal color. Pretty weird. Only thing I did lately was use a program to calibrate the Gamma.

Setup Installation :: New Motherboard - Windows 8 Resets Randomly

Sep 15, 2013

Client with advent DT2412 failed motherboard. old motherboard MSI B75M A-P45 (discontinued). replaced with Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H Socket 1155 M-ATX Motherboard.

Client confirms no backup and insisting that I we try not to lose data. Managed to get the desktop up and running as same chipset on new mobo. client now complaining that computer drops out randomly. I've asked the client to back up there data and stated that we will have to complete a fresh re-install due to possible driver issues.

If we run the factory reset disks from advent will it not load the same chipset and drivers for the MSI? thus causing it to drop out again? If I install a fresh copy of windows 8 where do i get the product key from?

Hardware Drivers :: Bluetooth On Laptop (HP Envy 15) Randomly Disappeared

May 5, 2014

I have bought a HP envy 15 and upon using it a couple of times I turned it on again and Bluetooth had DISAPPEARED it was non existent in any settings or the Control Panel or anything except in Device Manager. After excessive clicking around I found that it had been turned off so I turned it back on.

I have used it for a while since until I turned it on today and found it to be again completely disappeared, I have tried everything within my knowledge to fix it and right now I have re-remembered how utterly worthless HP are at making hardware. I cannot find how to turn it back on again if it is the same error, but I do not think it is.

If I go into my device manager now (see image) it has the exclamation mark through it which means what exactly?? Clicking to update the driver does nothing, restarting does nothing, I can't see how uninstalling or disabling it will do anything.

Apps / Software :: Dell M6700 Laptop - Windows Randomly Stay On Top

May 10, 2013

I have a brand new Dell M6700 laptop with Windows 8, which seems to have an extremely annoying bug or feature. While working I usually have many windows open in desktop mode, such as Visual Studio, Outlook, remote desktop etc. Every now and then some of the windows decides to stay on top of the window stack. This could be a nice feature in some cases, but usually it is just bloody annoying, as e.g. when creating new email the new mail window may be buried under Outlook itself, which has for some reason decided to stay on top.

This staying-on-top behavior has occurred with multiple software including windows explorer, remote desktop, outlook and visual studio. So far I have not been able to figure out how to reproduce this, it seems to happen randomly. Usually the software has to be restarted to resume normal behavior, but at least once the window has resumed normal behavior without restarting.

Is this is a normal feature in Windows 8? Is there some weird keystroke or gesture which I happen to activate without knowing it? Could it be some third party software, which might be already installed on brand new Dell laptops? I know there are some software to force windows to stay on top, but I have not installed such.

Browsers/Mail :: Windows 8 With Outlook 2007 - Vertical Lines On Page In Received Email

Jul 10, 2013

I have Windows 8 with Outlook 2007 as e-mail. In the old XP days when ever I received e-mail with that annoying vertical line down the side of the page it was simple enough to get rid of them by using the instructions below. Now of course in this modern world things are different with tool bars turning into ribbons. When I open the e-mail there is no View.

Is it possible convert the XP instructions below into Windows 8 ...

Lets see if this works: Open the email and click Forward: Now, click View on the Menu Bar: Now look for SOURCE at the bottom tab and click: Now look through the SOURCE CODE and find a selection that starts with something called <BLOCKQUOTE>Now, if there is one line in the email you should see it once. For each blue line you will see it listed. Highlight each line in the screenshot below and delete:

Debugging :: 8.1 - Daily BSoD / Blackout Then Resets

Aug 2, 2014

So, this started happening after I upgraded from 4770k to 4790k (or at least I think it started then, can't exactly remember), I keep getting BSoDs or blackout resets (Screen goes black and then resets the entire computer), I'm not sure what's causing this.

I've re-installed my Windows and it still does that (I re-install my programs immediately every time I re-install my Windows, so program could still be an issue), this is driving me crazy cause this is happening almost every day.

And yes, I have updated my BIOS before even installing that new processor, and I'm sure that they're compatible. (It's an ASUS Z87-PRO by the way.)

I did an SFC /scannow, nothing unusual pops up.
I did an overnight memtest (memtest86+), no errors (7 passes?).
I've reseated the RAM, still does that.

Audio :: Microphone Levels Too High And Auto Resets?

May 10, 2014

I am using a USB headset with a microphone (Logitech G35). my microphone levels are too high. My microphone picks up almost everything, especially keyboard- and mouseclicks which people have complained about. Whenever I try to adjust the microphone levels to something lower, for example 18dB instead of 24dB, it will reset back to 24dB almost as soon as I start to speak. I have tried to change the levels both in Windows Sound Settings and in the driver for the headset. I have tried multiple dB values, not only the one in my example.

I am using Windows 8.1.

Maintenance :: Delay When Scrolling And Choppy Streaming Of Videos?

Apr 8, 2014

Just acquired my first win 8 laptop. I had a loaner win 8 and hated everything between the computer and OS. I really like this Lenovo but im still having issues with win 8. Mainly this computer and the rental one seems very bogged down. Everything from social media or streaming etc even scrolling down this forum page has such a Lag or delay. Is this typical for win 8, can i do anything about this?

the lag is a delay. everytime I would scroll down a page it would have a delay, or if i stream a video (I use chromecast) it is delayed and choppy. My Win 7 Laptop had zero issues like these.

How To Disable Two Finger Scrolling On Asus N56dp Series

Mar 23, 2013

I don't like the two finger scrolling on Windows 8 for Asus. It works decent but I still prefer the old fashions one finger scrolling it seems to be more fluid when scrolling through pages. For me it still feels unnatural to use two fingers; I want my Windows 8 PC back and toss the mac feature for two finger scrolling. I'm not sure why Asus added this because it really ruins my Windows 8 experience as scrolling is an essential function for workflow. I'll put it this way if one finger scrolling was enabled I would have a 10 out of 10 experience versus two finger scrolling I would have a 7 out of 10 experience.

Windows 8.1 - Pin Calculator To Taskbar / Scrolling Files And Image Transfer From Camera

Nov 12, 2013

I am totally unhappy about windows 8. Many good features from earlier windows are missing such as -

1) You can not pin "Calculator" to the task bar. In earlier versions you could open the calculator, over other windows.
2) While scrolling to folders / files in Explorer or any software, the screen jumps abruptly to up or down.
3) While transferring Images from camera. You can not select part images for transfer along with renaming. This feature was available in Windows XP.

How To Disable Scrolling On Start Screen Or Change Tile Scaling By A Small Amount

Mar 17, 2014

Is there any way to disable scrolling on the start screen or change the tile scaling by a small amount? I've got a 1680x1050 monitor and when there's 10 medium sized tiles across the screen, it activates the scroll bar, but there's no need for the scroll bar as all the tiles fit on the screen fine and scrolling only shifts them by a few pixels.
