Disabled Windows 8 Password / Lost Desktop Tiles And Documents?

Apr 16, 2014

I recently turn off the login password on Windows 8.1, HP laptop. The next time she went to turn it on, all the normal tiles from the Start Screen were gone with the exception of five tiles: IE, File Explorer, Store, SkyDrive and Desktop.

The File Explorer icon opens a folder showing the various libraries and devices/drivers. When she clicks on the Documents folder it doesn't show any of her files. I did eventually find them by going to her name in the Users folder, but we cannot understand why simply taking away the requirement for a login password would change everything. All her browser favorites were also wiped out, and she had to reinstall Chrome.

Lost Permissions / Tiles Are Missing And Can't Reset

Mar 24, 2014

Since receiving my laptop back from it being repaired (Fan wasn't spinning then the laptop wouldn't turn on after trying to fix it myself) it turns on and the fan spins just fine although I am having numerous software problems.

First, I can't open my photos, music or documents folder (videos seems to be fine) and they don't have their original icons anymore, when I try to open the folders using the file explorer nothing happens, when I tried to open folder using the tiles, the folder would load then close without warning or reason and when I tried opening files by right clicking > open with, it would open then a banner will show saying. 'You don't have permission to access this' (Or something similar).

I am able to access my photos and such by going to: Computer > Local Disk (C: ) > Users > [My name], in there I can find it all but it's not where it should be.

After this I decided to restore my pc to an earlier point, but since then my tiles have vanished (Photos, music, Skype, videos, people and so on) although the Store tile seems to have stayed and is working fine.

While trying to reinstall the tiles from the store, the store says I already have the tiles but I can't find them anywhere.

I eventually decided to reset my system and reinstall windows (I would be reverted to Windows 8 not 8.1) although while attempting a reset, a banner shows up saying. 'There was a problem while resetting your PC'. When clicking 'Check for solutions to this problem' it would minimise the window to the desktop and then nothing would happen.

I want my old PC back, before it needed repairing!

Windows 8.1 - Distorted Graphics In Metro Apps

Apr 26, 2014

The problem I'm having with my copy of Windows 8.1 is that in some Metro apps the graphics will be very odd, for example, some things not showing up until I hover my mouse over it or scroll, things changing or disappearing when I move the cursor or go to new screens, etc.

This only really happens with the built-in Microsoft apps. I know exactly why it does it too. The apps aren't set to run only on the integrated GPU in my laptop, which has both integrated and dedicated switchable graphics. The Windows App Store was having this issue too, but when the AMD Catalyst Control Center notified me that the App Store had video/3D graphics and wanted me to set it, I set it to Power Saving instead of its original setting, and now it acts fine.

Here's my real problem: I can't set the other apps for the integrated processor, as I cannot find their executable files anywhere and the Catalyst Control Center is not asking me to set which processor I want for the applications.

Graphic Cards :: Nvidia Switchable Graphics On Windows 8

Oct 11, 2013

I have a notebook pc that comes with windows 7 from factory. I would like to install windows 8 in my machine. It has integrated intel hd graphics chip and separate nvidia geforce 420m graphic card. I heard switchable graphics are not working fine with windows 8. Is that true? BTW my system manufacturer isn't providing drivers that compatible with windows 8. Whatever windows 8 upgrade assistant says already installed drivers also compatible with windows 8 and individual hardware manufactures has windows 8 compatible drivers. So, what should I do? Windows 8 upgrade is useless for me?

Hardware Drivers :: Graphics Turns Off After Sleep?

May 17, 2014

Older Acer tower/monitor running 8.1.1.

Oftentimes when I'm finished with my PC I'll turn the monitor off, the speakers off, and fold my arc mouse to let the system do maintenance. I have it set to sleep after an hour. I'll hit a key to wake it and turn everything back on. The lock screen appears then turns black. I then turn the monitor off and back on again. Sometimes the process repeats, however, it always stays on upon the 3rd try.

I thought I had the problem resolved by turning off by turning off the picture slide show on the lock screen. That worked for a few "out-of-sleeps" but then failed again. I have no virus according to Defender, which updates and scans daily. I did a few DISM/Scannow-s, (Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth) but those failed as seen by the snip below.

I have WDDM1.1 driver. Could it be corrupt? If so, how would I go about repairing it? I've scoured the MS site to no avail so to download then point to it. I searched my 8 DVD install media to no avail likewise. Not sure even if that would work being it will have the same name?

Graphic Cards :: Disabled Onboard Graphics In OS

Apr 27, 2013

I have a p7-1423w HP Beats Audio Desktop.

Problem: Tried to hook up my new nvidia video card, powered on the computer. No display. Unseated the video card, switched the cable back to the onboard connection, powered on, booted into BIOS, and I did not see any option for disabling Onboard or switching to PCI-E. So, I booted into Windows 8 and disabled the onboard graphics there. I then installed the video card physically into the computer and powered on. Still no display. I unseated the graphics card and plugged back into the onboard once again and now I only get display up until POST is finished then the display is turned off (I only assume this is because I disabled the Intel HD onboard graphics in the OS). But I tried to boot to miniXP from HIRENS only to find out I cannot boot to the CD! This is ingenious (sarcasm noted), so I need to figure out how to get this very limited machine to boot to a CD to get into MINIXP so I can reenable the onboard.

Debugging :: BSOD Since New Graphics Card Happens Regularly

Jan 3, 2014

Ever since I have upgraded from my trusty HD 6790 setup (2 in crossfire) to my GTX 780 (evga sc acx edition, if that matters) it has been a nightmare.

I originally had Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my PC, it was hard to get anything done, it would BSOD pretty much all the time, and just getting logged in was a pain, I tried multiple drivers and even tried an older driver with an inf mod.

Upgrading to Windows 8 made things a bit better, but games were jerky, crash-y and froze alot; formatting my data drive sorted this. I still got alot of random BSOD's until I upgraded my motherboard and cpu.

I went from an ASUS P7P55D-E PRO with an i3 530 to a Gigabyte Z87X-D3H-CF with an i7 4770k

I'm currently running the latest driver, I have also tried different drivers with my new setup, apart from the older one as I can't get it to work on 8.1.

My BSOD's occur every few hours, the bug check string changes alot, but the crash address is pretty much always ntoskrnl.exe (got this in win7, too)

This is the best my pc has ever ran with this gpu, crashing every few hours. I tend to just be browsing the web, or leaving it idle when I goto sleep when it BSOD's.

The only thing I can think of now is a bad power supply or bad card, although I highly doubt this as my psu ran fine with my crossfire setup + is 750w, then again, it isn't the best psu ever. It's a powercool 750w psu, not modular, I can't find it online. It has 4 pci-e connectors, 2 of which are 8-pin.

I had 2 BSOD's typing this out :L so much for it happening every few hours.

I have attached the files from the diagnostics tool.

I also doubt my ram is bad as my PC ran fine with my AMD gpu's.

Graphic Cards :: Re-install Intel Graphics 3000 HD?

When I installed the Video card, I either disabled, or uninstalled, the Intel HD 3000 Video adapter. I am now having issues with the card and wanted to try using the Intel graphics, before replacing the card, but they are no where to be found. "Scan for hardware changes" produces nothing.

They do not show up under display adapters in Device Manager, so I can't enable/install them. I d/l the last 2 versions of drivers form Intel, neither will install -

Graphic Cards :: No Video Playback After Graphics Driver Update

Jun 10, 2013

After certain update of my graphics card driver I no longer have a video playback on my video players (including WMP), besides VLC. All the other video player are just able to play the sound of the video file, Nut not the video (the screen just stays black).The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now!

I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed. As I mentioned I didn't have this problem before,, with a previous versions of the AMD graphics card driver. This happened to my laptop a while ago already,, Since I have this problem I updated my video drivers 5 or 6 times at least, and no change so far !!!

As I mentioned I have the problem for some time already, during this time I re-installed my Windows couple of times, plus I even changed the version of the windows (7 to 8), for the moment I have the last version of video driver installed, I haven't installed ANY codecs.

I can probably find out from which update of a graphic card driver it started to happen and install the previous version, but I don't wanna miss out on the benefits of the driver updates, since I can still play normally videos on VLC (Only! cuz its probably have integrated codecs?!)

All the other graphic card related tasks are perfectly normal, I play games and so on.
