I have HP 1000 Notebook PC.(Core i3).i have installed windows 8.problem is that my wifi option in the windows shows OFF.when i move cursor to it it is not highlighted.in fact it seems its not even installed. (cannot be turned on.).
I previously used ubuntu in my Windows 8 Pro and Windows got many errors so i deleted the folder of ubuntu..did not uninstalled and all that. now it shows ubuntu on OS choose Screen. then i thought installing Ubuntu would overwrite the existing one..but sadly i have two Ubuntu Choice..one is empty and another is working.
Now, how can i edit that screens setting. by setting i dont mean going to advance setting and choosing default os. I want to edit like in Windows 7, boot.ini file.or If there's any other way to remove that empty Ubuntu from the OS choice Option
I can not get rid of old windows 7 option when I start up my laptop - it gives win 7 and win 8 as options like there are 2 os which there is not. If I try to click on win 7 option nothing happens. I have reinstalled many times and can not get rid of it. I have an ASUSF5RL
I don't know if it is connected but when I try to shut down it takes 5-30 mins for the computer to click off. How do I get rid of this?
OK, it seems like I'm part of the vast conspiracy to not have 8.1 connect to the internet. Here is what's going on;
Wifi indicator shows "!" and reads "limited".
When I open the browser and click to diagnose the issue it runs through and ends with a message saying the default gateway has been fixed. About every fifth time it'll give me "The connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken." This computer works fine when plugged directly into the Ethernet cable from the router. Every other device on the router (other pc, xbox) work fine.

I have a Windows 8.1 and a problem with my apps. When I try to open weather, finance and other apps, They show their start-up screen and in a couple of seconds they're gone - I am brought to my metro screen... Tried to reinstall the apps, but hadn't got any luck...
But wait, it get interesting: Even though the weather app crashes, I have a live tile option on for that app, and it shows me weather nicely.
Here are some of the errors from Event viewer:

I recently upgraded to windows 8.1 pro on my laptop (HP Probook 6560b). This is an old business laptop that used to belong to my mother and originally had windows 7. After upgrading and installing all required drivers there is still no option to connect to the internet via Wi-Fi. (currently connecting via ethernet cable)
This is what my network screen looked like:
I say "looked" because that has since changed after downloading the broadcom driver from the HP website (this link> Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows 8 | HP Support), now my network screen looks like this:
The Troubleshoot icon that should be under the 'Advanced Startup' Option is missing. System is a new Dell Latitude 10 ST2 Tablet running Windows 8. Have access to 9 other identical tablets, all configured the same and they all have the Troubleshoot Option. Have tried multiple methods of getting to "Advanced Startup" display (including Safe mode, 'shutdown /r /o', etc.), but all result in only having the 'Continue', 'Use a Device', and 'Turn Off your PC' options - No Troubleshoot. Other than missing this icon, system is working fine. Shy of wiping the disk and starting over.
(Lenovo Yoga 13.3 - full Windows updates - 8.l install/conversion - full updates again.)
I took a snapshot using the webcam (via the Skype app) and it created a file C:UsersJohnDoePicturesCamera RollThe Lame Picture.png
It's been deleted for days (including the 'Camera Roll' subdirectory it rode in on).
Per recommendations elsewhere online: I've removed all the suspect live-tiles from the Start menu: Photos, Skype, Camera - and rebooted - but no way Jose. little thumbnail is still rotating through the lineup like nobodies business.
I'm not much of a VM expert. I have a couple of win7 systems running a WinXP VM that I installed manually, in all those cases, the virtual network has always just booted up and worked. Under Windows 8 Pro-RTM, I did a XP VM that I loaded myself (versus an XP mode) and it loads the virtual network adapter but it reports that the cable is unplugged
I'm not clear on what this means. Obviously, it's a VM so there is no cable to plug in. I'm guessing I'm suppose to match that Virtual Nic to the regular (aka Host's) NIC but I'm not see any options to do so.
On the same system I run windows 7 Ult and a XP install and the network loads up on boot.
This is what Windows Explorer and Disk Management show.
Drives G, H, I, and L are completely non-existent. When clicking on them, Windows asks to format them. Properties shows 0 bytes Used space/Free space. I need removing these "drives" from Windows Explorer.
I bought dell inspiron 7520 and tried creating the additional partition on the hard drive. After rebooting the laptop started showing blue screen and saying that the file Windowssystem32winload.efi doesn't exist or is corrupt. Error code: 0xc0000225
Since the laptop was sold just with the installed windows but without the CD with windows8, I'm not able to reinstall it.
i install Uxtheme multi patcher and install Windows XP Theme with icons but i dont like that theme i switch back to normal theme but i think theres a Bug in the charms bar This PC seems xp my computer icon in charms bar but i search for solution but its for Desktop but my desktop This PC is not messed i tried everything like rebuilding iconcache by deleting the theme by Changing the icon in the personalization but it dosent return to normal
I am setting the first of several Window 8 systems. On my first unit, I have a phantom "Other User" user show up at login, that is not a current user that shows up in the User Administration. It is always the default user the system tries to log in to at startup, but since it isn't a real account, it can't be logged in.
How do I delete it, when it doesn't show up as a valid user to be managed? I also have a single local user (no Password) and an Administrator account (well protected), and after the "Other Login" user login fails, ? can go back to all user screen and select any other login and they work properly. .
The main reason I want to use WMP is because it has playcounts, so after I have copied some media files I can see what hasn't been watched/listened too (going through my dvd collection and converting to digital) ....
A lot of files are on my old machine (Mac) so I copy them over and correct the metadata to make sure it's correct, few hours later I look at wmp shows the file size as 0 bytes (actual file is correct in explorer) ....
Is there anything I can do to avoid this (rebuilding library loses playcounts so don't want to keep doing this)? Or should I totally ignore playcounts and use the new metro style video app?

On delivery it had 9 Windows updates installed ( 8, dated Nov 13 and the last one dated 07 Mar 2014, perhaps just before it left the factory). My first priority was to update Windows. A total of 78 updates including the last major Windows 8.1 update 1 akin to a Service Pack - KB2919335 and all this took a lot of time. All updates went on well with no problems.
Now I find that Windows Disk Management lists two OEM recovery partitions D: ( What it was earlier, I did not notice but I presume it was showing one correctly since any abnormality would have caught my attention.)
Diskpart lists all the partitions correctly. And so also bootice. Now what is causing this and how do I fix it?
I find there is a Intel Manageability Firmware Recovery Agent - [URL] .... My own guess is some Intel driver/firmware may be causing it. As I said it is only a guess. I tried the update with it but so far Intel servers could not be reached though my internet connection is OK.
Some file types appear in File Explorer with the file name extension and others do not. For example in this folder the .DLL file has the extension shown but not the .EXE files. What setting is responsible for this and how would I get more consistent behaviour?
I just got a FM2-A75MA-E35 motherboard and a installing Windows 8 on a freshly formatted SATA HDD. My BIOS see's the drive and has it second in the boot order, just after the DVD-ROM drive. It has a label with the drive serial number and everything, along with the drive being 'enabled' in BIOS. When I get up to the spot to choose what drive to install Windows to, its says 'No drives were found, please select a storage driver'. I found that it shows C: when I browse for drivers. Why this isn't working?
I have Samsung Laptop with Windows 8 installed. I have 2 partitions 200 GB and the rest whole drive as C drive which after recovery drive amounts to be around 700 GB. Yesterday, I tried Samsung Recovery to get a factory image of C drive. Firstly recovery failed twice and then the third attempt worked almost fine. Recovery said boot file was corrupted and it recovered. But when I opened my computer I had two drives, 60 GB and 200GB. The rest of the space wasnt there. I checked in disc management, Partitions map said C drive had 700 GB. But in the description it shows only 60 GB. The other partition 200 GB is intact. I tried doing samsung recovery again and again but the problem persists.
I was upgrading to Win 8.1 pro with WMC, but when the download was just 5% completed, the net got disconnected due to power cut. When I restarted the system and Click on the Upgrade Tile in the Store, it goes to Download Page. And when I click on the Download button, it says Application is installed. I can't find it in My apps either so that I can click on uninstall and do a fresh upgrade. The download was only 5% completed. Now I am unable to upgrade.
PS: I googled somewhere and found that I had to empty the SoftwareDistribution folder is to be emptied. After doing that, now when I try to upgrade I get "Your Windows 8.1 installation could not be completed, something went wrong and the windows installation could not complete".
I'm having a little problem with my onboard audio, having just installed Windows 8.1 (clean install). I have an Asus P8Z77-V LE PLUS motherboard, which includes a "Realtek - ALC889 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC" onboard.
I have installed the latest realtek drivers; R2.73 from the official website.
Now, here's my problem: when I was using Windows 7 on this same machine, I could plug headphones in the front panel connector, as well as speakers in the green back panel connector. This would give me two audio outputs in the device manager/sound list, which was pretty practical and enabled me to output different applications through the speakers or the headphones.
Now, however, there's only one output, irrelevant of whether or not I have two outputs plugged in at the same time. They appear in the device manager as a single device called "speakers" (see picture). Instead of both having separate outputs, they both output exactly the same audio.
I'm unable to print on my Xerox WorkCentre PE220. Win 8 installed the driver properly and did not show any errors or red flags during and after the installation. When I print a window shows up saying error cannot print.
Opening a folder in file explorer often shows it empty when I know it isn't! Also if I try to delete the "empty" folder, explorer reports it has found x number of files and is preparing to delete! If I quit that and look in the folder there are the files.
I also have issues with file explorer opening a folder and apparently scanning the contents - a green bar very slowly creeps across regardless of how frequently I've looked in the folder earlier in the day.
I have six drives mostly pretty full with a mixture of thousands of small files and thousands of very large images. Windows 8 file explorer seems to have problems coping.
