Over the past couple days I've been experiencing a BSOD 1 or 2 times a day during what seem like, random times. The BSOD is a little funky because the screen is skewed pretty badly and no text is visible. Where do I start troubleshooting this error?
I want to get started with WP8/8.1 dev and I decided to dual boot on my work laptop (Mac Book).
The problem is I don't want to use my Dreamspark (OEM as far as I know) license on my work PC since it's an academic license if I'm not mistaking and this might cause some problems at work, and I also don't want to activate it on my 6 years old PC since I have some projects still going on and I'm planning on upgrading sometime next year.
So my question(s) is simple: Can I install the 90 days trial of Windows 8.1 Enterprise and reinstall again, on same PC after the trial is over?
I had desktop with intel motherboard with chipset G41 and motherboard model DG41RQ. My desktop is assembled desktop with os windows 8 enterprise x64. Problem is Audio is not working at all. I visited intel website but I did not find solution.
I have Windows 8 Enterprise, yes,a legal copy from where I work. It does not come with Media Center, NOR can you use the method to "Add features" as it does not work on the Enterprise version. I have a valid Windows Media Center key from Microsoft but, there is no place to enter it.
Any work-around to get Media Center working on Windows 8 Enterprise ?
I already install Windows 8 Enterprise, When I log in as Domain account (Member of Local Administrator Group) I was trying to Setup File History but when I click on File History it does nothing. I tried to enable it Logging as Local User and I can view the option when I click File History in Control Panel. Apparently this is something that is happening with the Domain account. How can I enable it??

Is there a way to upgrade my Windows 8 Enterprise desktop to Windows 8.1 Enterprise without losing my installed programs, files, settings, etc..?
From what I am reading online, Windows 8 Enterprise must be upgraded via iso to Windows 8.1 Enterprise. I read a few user saying there is no upgrade and you have to do a fresh install of Windwos 8.1 Enterprise. I do not want to lose my customizations, files, and programs.
First, I tried to edit the 'hosts' file but wasn't let save the change as having no permission. I'm the only user and administrator. I took over ownership and gave full rights to myself, rebooted, still the same.
Second, I tried to run notepad as administrator for the same reason. It wouldn't open. Then, I wanted to start it from an elevated command prompt, but cmd didn't start as admin either. This, like notepad, opened nicely as 'normal', neither as admin.
I've recently acquired a tablet to pilot with my company. It is a Dell Latitude 10 ST2, and my issue is I'm trying to install and upgrade to Windows 8.1 Enterprise, but having no luck so far.
I have the 32-bit version of Win 8 Enterprise on a USB, and when I get to the "Installing Windows 8.1 screen" it get to 35%, and then gives a popup that the "Windows 8.1 Installation Has Failed". I was trying to see if there was a real error message or log to tell me what the issue is, but I haven't been able to locate anything yet. I don't even make it to the following screen ....
I have Windows 8.1 Core and Enterprise dual booted. Now, the real question here is, well I've read online that Windows 8.1 had finally added some of the encryption functionality of Bitlocker in a limited sense setup and turned on by default in all editions of Windows including Core - similar to how it does this with RT. The thing is on that point I've read about this, but no-one on the internet seems to know how to describe this functionality with more detail than just a mention of the existence of this.
Yes, I know Windows 8.1 is a brand new OS - so new that it won't be available to the normal public for another month and a half. And yes, I know, this RTM is still incomplete and when it will be complete within this next month and half maybe some of these new features (like the default limited Bitlocker as well as the Wifi hotspot functionality (which I figured out how to setup with Powershell, but there's no easy and normal way to go about doing this (how are normal people going to set it up? Normal people are afraid of Powershell/Command Prompt! Microsoft knows this - so I assume they'll address these concerns, and if they don't - there employees and executives must be smoking crack cocaine))).
But, what I'm getting at is this - is it safe for me to set up Bitlocker on the Enterprise edition/drive and let the Core edition/drive be as it is now? Is there a specific way I should go about doing this? If my concern on this is warranted - and it's a dangerous thing to try to do - which could have negative and unwanted consequences - than maybe I should just remove Enterprise, well if I should, then suggest that too. I like Bitlocker encryption for my more sensitive data - but I also like this Windows To Go feature as well. I would remove Enterprise if it's probably the best option. I am concerned of this too because I remember reading years ago that in reality having a dual boot setup of 2 editions of the same version of Windows (or just 2 editions of different versions) was/is actually something that isn't a good idea to have setup because it messes with the 2 versions of Windows somehow and drive C:, but I assume that as time has passed and technology has advanced maybe those issues that were authentic issues in the past might've been addressed with the new technology - but am unsure of this.
So, basically, the real question is - is dual booting these 2 editions of Windows safe in the new world of today with these new technologies - and if it is - is having the full Bitlocker functionality with Enterprise setup and having the Core OS setup as the main OS as well - safe?
I have an Asus UX31A with WIndows 8 Enterprise VL. Every time I wake the system from sleep, I hear the system chime as if a device is attached, unattached, and re-attached. I don't know what as it happens at the login screen and I'm not fast enough to see if anything appears in the taskbar.
After logging in, I get this window (see below; I had to remove a couple things I don't know if I can show). If I follow its directions, I restart and go about life until I put the system to sleep again in which the process repeats. As I write this I'm finishing a bunch of updates so perhaps that has something to do with it (I have a lot of Office and SP1 for SQL Server that I've been putting off along with a healthy swath of optional OS updates).
When i right click on My Computer icon and click Properties, System Properties window open for a second and immediately closes. I have the same problem even if i try to open System Properties from Control Panel. How do i solve this problem without doing system restore. Keyboard volume keys also not working
I have installed windows 8.1 enterprise x64 in my Hp Envy m6-1102sa and i installed all my programs, when I was installing Eset Smart Security v 7 and i restarted system. I got a blue screen on it (kernel auto boot invalid lock release) 0% since 5 hours.
I have restarted many times, no way except system restore and lose my all programs, this is the second time...
