Windows 8.1 Update - Blank Flicker Occurs When Open And Close Programs

Oct 23, 2013

How big this new 8.1 update is and can it be downloaded as an iso? Also, does it contain any driver updates. I installed Win 8 on a Vista machine and it runs well, except for an annoying blank flicker that occurs when I open and close programs. Tried both a Vista and Win7 video driver but made no difference.

Dell :: Inspiron 3737 - Windows 8.1 Lid Close / Display Never Comes Back From Being Blank

Aug 20, 2014

My laptop is Inspiron 17 3737. 

When I close my lid, with the system set on not sleeping (just turn off back-light) and reopen it the screen remains blank. It happens even if I'm logged in, or not, or from sleep. So, basically, the display never comes back from being blank. 

I tried updating all the drivers, I tried with the original ones, same problem....

Open Windows Store With Blank Screen?

Sep 15, 2014

I'm in the middle of a struggle with blank screen issue, possibly corrupted exlorer.exe file (won't run). Wanted to try update from 8-8.1 but the Windows Store won't show up with the blank screen issue. Any thoughts on resolutions? I've done several malware, adware scans and antivirus scans. Everything comes back clear. Also, tried adding a new user acct, but get an error message and can't add. Thought the update might replace the needed files. SFC scan return non-fixable errors.

Open Browser And Programs Frozen To Taskbar In Windows 8

Jan 24, 2014

My husband has an HP Envy desktop running Windows 8 with a new HP 23tm Touch Screen Monitor. For the last couple of weeks, sometimes when he lowers an open browser to the task bar, he can no longer bring it back up. It show the small preview and it is still open but it won't go enlarge. Right click, left click, close then open, it's just done. At first restarting the computer worked. He found that when it happens he can switch to a different browser and that will work. When he has a browser open on the desktop and tries to open another program it opens but stays frozen to the taskbar. Lower the browser and it still wont enlarge. This seems to happen when it goes into screen save mode. We ran all checks (drivers, disk, virus) and ran all updates.

All Programs Crash When Trying To Open Or Save

Dec 30, 2012

I've been having some major trouble with all of my programs. At first I thought it was just with my Adobe Creative suite, but then I noticed it was happening on my Office Suite. Then on firefox, IE, etc.

Every time I open up the window to save or open a file from a specific directory, the program crashes. Resetting my computer works for a while but after a few hours, it goes back to crashing all my programs. I'm getting very desperate as I have some looming deadlines and this is really affecting my work.

I've tried 'refreshing' my system and it says my drive is locked...

I've tried restoring a backup but get an error...

I've tried formatting my system and it says a partition is missing...

Apps / Software :: Programs Uninstalled After Windows 8.1 Update

Oct 18, 2013

Before updating, a message was shown that updating will not delete any of my information or files but apps will be uninstalled. Upon restarting my laptop, my apps were uninstalled (and I just re-installed them) but my program files were also uninstalled. Yea, I can just install them all again but some program file that were uninstalled were my Microsoft Office that I paid for and the paid software that came preinstalled on my laptop (Like the webcam, movie editor, etc). I really need those software (especially office) but I do not want to pay for them. Would a system restore bring back those files? Is that the only way I can get those programs (and others) back?

Screen Flicker Right After Logon In 8.1

Jul 31, 2014

Recently, I noticed that every time after I log into Windows 8.1 with my password, the screen flickers for like a second. What might have changed to cause this. I haven't installed anything new before the problem occurred.

I do remember that I was fiddling with some display options (changing items sizes) but I did restore them back to the default options. Just updated my nvidia drivers but that didn't solve the issue either.

Win. 8.1 Pro x64bit

Make Programs Open In Monitor Previously Closed On?

Feb 20, 2013

Is there a way to make Windows 8 remember what screen you closed a program on and open it in that window? Right now, I have most of the stuff I open pinned to the task bar. How it opens now is what ever monitor I click on the program in, it opens it in that monitor. I understand the logic on that, but I was wondering if there was a way to make programs always open on a specific monitor. I.e. I always have outlook on my monitor clear to the left, visual studio in the middle, and my browser on the right. Is there a way to force those programs to always open on that monitor, regardless of which task bar I click on?

Setup Installation :: Programs Arbitrarily Open In Different Monitors

Jul 30, 2014

My setup is :-

Windows 8.1, 64 bit;
Asus RAIDR Express PCIe SSD;
Asus GT630-SL-2GD3-L GPU;
Asus SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 1 Motherboard, BIOS version 0602, (the first version).

I have two monitors, a Dell u2412m which is plugged into the DVI socket on the GPU, and an iiyama XB2776QS which is connected to the DisplayPort socket on the motherboard. This was the only way I could find to get each monitor to use the maximum resolution it is capable of.

Whenever I open a program I have no idea on which monitor it will be displayed, sometimes a program will display in the iiyama, but the next time I open it I can see it on the Dell. I also find that if I switch the monitors off for a few hours, the next time I switch them on the programme might be displaying in a different monitor.

I am not sure if this is because I am not using the new, horrible, Metro style which Microsoft thought to introduce, or something else. I did try a piece of software called MurGeeMon, but this did not solve the problem.

Could it be because one of my monitors is connected to the GPU and the other to the MoBo?

Random Rapid Screen Flicker?

Mar 20, 2014

why my monitor screen flickers, like it is having convulsions, from one window to happens for about 5-30 seconds at a time randomly throughout my work day..and can occur when I am browsing, typing in outlook, or typing in word. I have switched monitors, cables, and it still occurs. The problem occurred with a previus laptop (ACER using windows 7) which crashed in Nov. It is now happening again with a new Lenovo desktop using windows 8.1. I bought a new backup battery and that didn't make a difference. I changed outlets and that didn't make a difference.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 (with Last Update) Does Not Open Store?

Apr 9, 2014

I've got windows 8.1 with the yesterdays update but the problem comes before this update.

Wen I open the Windows Shop, it always on the green screen and does not advance. I've done the following steps:

1 - I did WSReset.exe as administrator but the store is always like this. If you close and re-open the store, I get the same green screen;

2 - I downloaded the tool Windows 8 App Troubleshooter which tells me that I have an outdated graphics driver. Is not true because I have installed the latest version.

3 - UAC is turned on but without success;

4 - I've turned my account as a local account and tried to open the shop but with the same result. I've reverted my account as linked to Microsoft.

5 - I created a new user account and with that account the store opens. I returned to my account and nothing.

6 - Finally I ran the SFC / SCANNOW and gave me this picture.

Apps / Software :: 8.1 Update - Windows Store And All Other Applications Won't Open

Oct 19, 2013

Attempted to update to 8.1 yesterday and the store just won't open. Every time I click on the Store tile it doesn't get past the green introductory screen before just disappearing (crashing).. Have restarted several times and used the link-through on the Windows 8.1 site. Also, I have since discovered that all apps won't open either (such as news and sports).
