Windows 8.1 Support High Resolution Screens?

Mar 12, 2014

I have a laptop with a 3200 x 1800 screen and the toolbars and menus of Illustrator and Photoshop are nearly illegible due to their minuscule size. Indesign displays normally, as does Lightroom.

On the adobe forums, two entries - Adobe Community: Photoshop CC on a High DPI display on Windows 8.1 and Adobe Community: Photoshop CC / Windows 8.1 HiDPI / Retina scaling support - suggest this is due to Microsoft not supplying required APIs (whatever these are...).

3200 x 1800 is still new, but over four months have passed since the posts on the adobe forums and the problem endures. Surely a giant such as Microsoft should already have that loophole closed? It is quite astounding that such an issue should even exist in the first place.

Graphic Cards :: Scaling On High-resolution Screens?

Mar 28, 2014

I bought a new laptop with a 13" but HIGH (3800x1800) resolution screen.

Windows 8.1 has a display feature where ALL objects can be scaled larger to deal with the fine resolution.

However, I have one program on the desktop that sometimes flips this off and "goes native".

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.1 Not Remembering Resolution And Additional Screens

Jan 21, 2014

I have 5 screens, 3 screens connected to a display card, and 2 on motherboard.

When i was with windows 7, no problem at all for the past 2 years. Once upgraded to Windows 8.1, windows DOES recognise all 5 screens, however, it will revert back to a single screen and 800 x 600 resolution.

I will have to enable and reposition all screens again until the next restart.

Windows 8.1 - Processor Doesn't Support PAE / NX Or SEE2?

Oct 19, 2013

I have a 6 yr old Dell Dimension E520 currently running Windows 8. I tried to upgrade to 8.1 but have been denied because my processor doesn't support PAE, NX or SEE2. I've read some posts that stated that this was an issue preventing them from installing version 8. It wasn't an issue for me since 8 installed. My questions are why would this effect me now and is there a work around?

Running a Windows 8.1 Virtual machine from a LINUX host with 3-D support working. What distro are you using. (VMware player / workstation).

I've tried SUSE and DEBIAN - the VM runs perfectly except I can't get 3-D support or hardware graphics acceleration.

Under Windows as host (W7) no problem !!.

UEFI / GPT Support On Installation Media (DVD) Windows 8.1

May 4, 2014

I am trying to make a DVD with UEFI/GPT support for Windows 8

I have an ISO from MSDN - Windows 8.1 Pro VL (x64) - DVD (Danish)
File Name:da_windows_8_1_pro_vl_x64_dvd_2971937.iso
[URL] .....

The SHA1 for the ISO matches the one on MSDN

SHA1: 3142B1DCBDFFC7E46ACE0E89BDB858D2C9B1F233

I used Hashtab v.5.1.23 to verify [URL] .....

If I burn the ISO and boot from the DVD created, it boot just fine in UEFI Bios.

But if I change the ei.cfg file to one of these:

(Blank) to have the choice to install Core or Pro

It will not boot in UEFI Bios, it work just fine in Legacy Bios. I can use the program Rufus [URL] .... to create a bootable USB drive, this works perfect. But I would really like to know how to make this work on a DVD. Or/and what I am missing.

This is the original ei.cfg file from the ISO.

Hardware Drivers :: Easycap Doesn't Support Windows 8?

Dec 3, 2012

I primarily use an Easycap to convert VHS tapes to digital video files, but unfortunately, I have my device plugged in, and tried installing a few drivers for it, but none of them worked. I've searched across the Internet for an EasyCap driver for Windows 8, but I couldn't even find one, and have come to the conclusion that Easycap doesn't support Windows 8 yet, unless there was something that I didn't know about.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Microsoft Restore Point In HP Support Assistant

May 13, 2014

I need some info re creating restore points. In the HP Support Assistant, under updates and tune-up-change tune-up tasks, should the "set restore point" be turned on to "yes" when a tune-up is scheduled? I understand that windows 8.1 automatically sets restore points, but I don't know how or when or where the restore point info is stored. Is the HP Support Assistant "set restore points" the actual method used by Microsoft or an additional option?

Windows 8 - Using 2 Monitors / Screens

I am trying to run 2 monitors in Win 8 and whilst it recognizes them, whenever I try and move say Chrome onto one then watch a video on the other it just closes Chrome then plays the video! And as you can't resize windows at all (that I can work out!) I can only do 1 thing at a time which is useless.

Windows 8.1 - Screens Freaking Out

Sep 27, 2012

The screens have been freaking out since I installed windows 8. I had it successfully running for about 10 minutes before this happened. I am now unable to get to the login screen without this happening.

I've been having issues for some time where my monitors will only 'fire off' part of the time on boot. They don't manage to secure a connection and sit there idle. Not sure if this could be related or not.

RAM: 4 GB ddr3
Motherboard: 6 Core asus

Graphic Cards :: Setup Two Screens In Windows 8?

Oct 10, 2013

My computer is an HP Laptop with a 17" screen. Today I connected a stand a lone monitor that is about 22". I've managed to get the resolution for the Laptop back to standard or native resolution.

However I'm going around in circles trying to get the larger monitor to it's proper resolution. How might I go about doing this and get the larger to respond independently from the Laptop Monitor?

Do I need some software to accomplish this or what?

Windows 8 - Multiple Screens Intermittently Undetect And Redetect

Feb 25, 2014

I'm running 3 external monitors on a Lenovo docked laptop. With Windows 8 it was running perfectly. Since upgrading to from Windows 8 to 8.1, at the most inopportune times, randomly and frequently throughout the work day, everyday, all the monitors will cut out, making the disconnected sound. They will briefly, maybe half a second consolidate all the open windows on the laptop with an illuminated screen, then go black and then all the monitors will turn back on, consolidating all the open windows on the one external monitor set as my default main monitor. Then I will continue working, moving all my windows back to where I want them, and it will randomly do it again, usually when I'm concentrating on something important. It's like it knows!

The same thing has happened with an external projector, though not with all projectors.

I have updated Windows, and all the graphics drivers. And my business partner is having the exact same problem, so it's not isolated to my computer. Windows 8.

Automate Login And Bypass Lock And Start Screens In Windows 8.1

Jan 28, 2014

It's all very easy to do. From the Start screen type "run". Click on Run and type "netplwiz". OK that and highlight your account. Uncheck "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer". Click Apply. Then enter your password twice. Click OK. From the Start screen type "taskbar" and select Taskbar and Navigation. Click the Navigation tab and tick "Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in". You can also tick the "Show the Apps view automatically when I go to Start" if you're not that interested in the Modern UI Start screen.

Restart your PC and when Windows loads it will automatically log you in and take you straight to the desktop. Easy.

Tech Support Erased All Backup Partitions?

Sep 15, 2014

I have a brand new Asus laptop that had a problem with the battery. I sent it in to Asus on an RMA and when I got it back, the only partition on the laptop was the OS. Is there something I can do so I can re-install the OS some day? I thought if I can get my activation code some way, I could download Win 8 and re-install, but I am not sure if that will even work with Windows 8.

Setup Installation :: Using Win 8 On Virtual Machine And Says No 64-Bit Support

Apr 9, 2014

I am using Windows Virtual PC which was a 64-Bit version I installed, I got XP Home 32-Bit installed via it perfectly and tried to install Windows 8 x64 AND THEN Windows 8.1 x64 but on both I got the BSOD (in the Virtual Machine) almost straight away saying 64-bit CPU is not supported?

I've read this may be due to not having VTx but I do as my CPU is a 3470 (Ivy Bridge) and SIW says its enabled as does BIOS

I am testing some Windows ISO's to check to make sure they are OEM and ask for product key during install but also to diagnose a WSUS Offline issue in windows 8 that reverses all updates right at the end saying there was a problem, the software creator needs a log and I ain't got time at work.

Graphic Cards :: How To Get Multiple Monitor Support Via Display Port

Jan 22, 2013

In a few weeks (I can't wait! ) I will replace my laptop with the Surface Pro.

Right now, though, I have my laptop connected to two monitors: One via VGA and other via DVI. I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64, so this all works great.

So the big question is whether it is possible to have multi-monitor support via the one-and-only DisplayPort that is on the Surface Pro? If so, what--if any--additional hardware would I need?

When I'm docked at home and using my Surface Pro as laptop, I really need to keep the functionality of using both external monitors (one is 31" and the other 29"). I would really hate to go back to only being able to use one.

Security :: How To Enable BitLocker Support (unlock Drive) In WinPE 5

May 18, 2014

I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and I am running Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1.

I have been unsuccessful at building a WinPE image that provides BitLocker support. I searched around the internet and found many posts. Eventually, I ended up trying to build it with the various added packages I discovered in the various posts. However, in the end, none worked and this is the message I am getting after booting into my WinPE environment:

manage-bde.exe - Application Error

The instruction at 0xa20afa3b referenced memory at 0x0000013d.
The memory could not be read.
Click on OK to terminate the program

Here are the commands I eventually ended up using to build my WinPE image:

Code: dism /image:C:Bootmacriummount /add-package /packagepath:"C:Program Files (x86)Windows Kits8.1Assessment and Deployment KitWindows Preinstallation"dism /image:C:Bootmacriummount /add-package /packagepath:"C:Program Files (x86)Windows Kits8.1Assessment and Deployment KitWindows Preinstallation Environment

[Code] ....

But even with all that included, I still have the same error about the memory.

Will WinPE 5.0 x64 bootable environment work on a TPM-enabled machine? If so, how did you build your custom WinPE environment?

Hardware Drivers :: Toshiba Laptop Doesn't Have Function Key Support Win 8.1?

Mar 11, 2014

My Toshiba laptop does not let any of the function keys operate properly. When I press one, nothing happens. I have also tried holding down the FN key, to no avail. I thought this was a Toshiba issue, but after multiple customer support "experiences" who told me that the operating system was corrupted, I think it may be a Windows 8.1 issue. This happened under Windows 8 too. Toshiba has a keyboard driver for this laptop model for Windows 7, but not 8.1. Is this a common problem with Windows 8.1 (All drivers are up to date and function key support is enabled in the BIOS)

Laptop: Toshiba c55-a5285.
