Maintenance :: Disk Use At 100% - Screen Started Blinking And Couldn't Click On Anything?

Sep 27, 2013

I had a problem with my laptop in that the disk use went to 100% and then the screen started blinking and I couldn't click on anything. After a reinstall of the OS it worked the same as new for about an hour but now the disk use climbs to 100% even when a new tab is opened and it stays at the max for a short time. The laptop becomes unresponsive during this time also.

Safe Mode Is Black Screen With Blinking Mouse - Windows 8.1

Sep 15, 2014

I am using Windows 8.1 with all the latest updates.

I'm trying to get into safe mode, but when I do it is only a black screen with in each corner it says "Safe Mode" and the whole screen blinks every few seconds resetting the cursors position. The cursor and text are only visible when I am moving the mouse, otherwise it's all black. I can't do any button combinations like CTRL ALT DEL or anything.

Normal mode works fine, and I can't think of any viruses/malware that work allow you to work in normal... but not safe mode.

I have all my Windows 8 options disabled (Windows 8 mode, fast boot, secure boot) to see if it was those but to no avail.

Every time I try, I have to go into safe mode. It sticks, so I can't just reboot/reset and go back into normal mode. I have to go into the emergency cmd and do bcdedit to delete the safeboot value.

I usually clean my PC every so often, the same with OS re-installation but nothing is wrong with the normal mode and the OS still seems quite fast with the SSD.

I have never seen safe mode function, this is the first attempt at running it in safe mode. What could cause this? I can't get into safe mode but can get into normal mode...

Windows 8 - Blinking Power Light

Oct 6, 2013

I've had Windows 8 sitting around since February, and got around to installing it yesterday. So far all is well, except for when I shut my computer off the power LED will keep flashing. At first I thought my computer was just in sleep mode, but after hitting a couple keys that was not the case. Is there a setting some where that would cause this. I know it's a minor issue but damn that LED is bright.

My systems specs
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300

EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3750640AS 750GB

CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800

Yeah this machine is over five years old, working on getting a new one together soon.

How To Stop Windows 8.1 From Popping Out Start Screen

Jul 28, 2014

My win 8.1 pops out the Start menu bar (dunno what it's officially called but it is a vertical bar with Search, Share, Start, Device, and Setting) when I scroll the right edge of my touchpad (Dell inspiron), and if I tap on the mouse it flips right to the Start screen. I see Microsoft is really doing everything they can to get the users to the Start screen. But this is really annoying because I have no business in the Start screen, unfortunately. i never go there and never will.

How can I stop the windows from doing this?

Windows 8.1 Symbols And Flashing Screen Won't Stop?

Jun 7, 2014

I turned on my laptop and after I logged on all my letters were replaced with symbols. I then restarted my laptop and now even my log in screen is symbols and when I get to the desktop my screen just keeps flashing and I can't click on anything. It just keeps flashing and loading nothing. I can't do anything on it. I didn't install anything the last time it was on either and I'm the only person who uses the laptop.

Print Screen Button Printing To Printer - How To Stop

May 29, 2014

I'm working at an office where when you hit the Print Screen button, it causes a printout in addition to the normal copy to clipboard. I just want to copy to clipboard without wasting toner and paper. It can't be a program on the computer as it's clean with just Windows 8.1

It actually happens on all the machines (whether Windows 7, 8, or 8.1). Is it a program installed on the server? Is it a setting in Windows? How do I stop this behavior?

Hardware Drivers :: Dell Laptop Making Clicking Noises Along With Blinking HD

Oct 25, 2013

I just bought a Dell Inspiron laptop 17i17RM-2419sLV almost a month ago. Today the computer has started making a soft clicking noise that goes in sync with the flashing hard drive light. Is my hard drive bad already? I'm in grad school and can't afford for this to suddenly crash on me again. I actually bought the same make/model right before this and the hard drive crashed three weeks after I bought it. It was replaced for me and now here I with a almost constantly blinking light and accompanying clicking sound.

Stop Booting From USB?

Sep 28, 2013

I've made some configuration error but I can't remember what. I have a SD card with recovery drive on it which has been sat in my card reader for ever. Yesterday (I'm not sure if this is related) I was trying to make a Windows to go drive using 8.1 Enterprise Preview in a VirtualBox VM. This was to be on another USB key and didn't work as it was incompatible. This key is not in the machine.

Anyhow now when I restart I always boot to the SD card recovery drive. I have to take it out to boot normally.

BIOS shows C:/ top of boot order and msinfo shows C:Windows is the default (and only) boot entry.

Downloads Stop At 99% - All Browsers

May 15, 2014

I think the first time I've noticed something's up was when updating Flash - it would stop at 99% for a very long time and eventually give an error message saying to check my internet connection or something. Well, but I did look and I'm still online. Then, I was to download some software for my phone - but the download won't complete. Neither in Firefox, nor Opera, nor silly old IE or Chrome. If I tried it in Safari, I bet it also wouldn't work (yes, I have that many browsers installed, just in case). It's just not browser-related.

Disk space? Mate, my computer is 3 TB of memory, no chance. A virus? My anti-virus never failed me, it does a great job at blocking nasties, and I performed TWO full scans, and yet it found nothing suspicious. Is it blocking? Don't think so either, it would say that something was stopped.

Computer Stop Playing Any Sounds?

Jul 26, 2014

So my computer likes to crash normally or stop playing any sounds, so I wanted to back it up and then factory reset it and see if it fixes both problems. I downloaded macrium and saw a lot of partitions and I'm wondering if it seems weird and which ones, if not all, I should choose to back up.

How To Stop Other PC Users From Seeing Onedrive Fold

Apr 6, 2014

I really like the onedrive PC feature from Microsoft. It allows to upload my work files seamlessly. But I do not want other PC users (different user accounts on the same computer) to access that folder. I know they might not be able to view the files but I also don't want them to see the content inside the folder.

Can it be done with the same old 'folder permission' settings? If yes, how to do that?

Stop Skydrive Being The First Port Of Call

Mar 3, 2014

I don't want necessarily to remove SKyDrive but it annoys the hell out of me when my files go to it and not to Documents which is where I want them. I do not know how to stop Skydrive being the first port of call for all my saved files or how to replace it with the good old fashioned Documents File. I am sure I am not alone in thinking that the Microsoft techies did a lousy job trying to better Win7 with this appalling Windows 8.1. I am about to buy a new laptop but what was once a real pleasure is now going to be a pain in the neck to have to get a new laptop with Windows 8 on it.

How To Stop Windows 8 Outlook Reminders

Jan 2, 2014

Got Windows 8 a few months ago and also use Outlook 2007 with an MSN email address using Outlook Connector. I am being driven crazy by Outlook reminders. Outlook dings when a reminder goes off, then Windows 8 does the same reminder a few seconds later. Add to it my phone going off and tablet and I get 4 of the same reminder. I've searched the web and can't seem to figure out how to stop at least the Windows 8 ones.

How To Stop Windows 8 From Shutdown During Boot Up

May 31, 2014

So what happens is you have the charger plugged in and was indicating it is charging and you start up the machine, it would come up automatic repair for about 10 seconds then shutdown and then after it shuts down the light indicating it's charging turns off.

I assumed it was just low on charge so I left it charging for an hour and I tried again and had gotten the same results so I'm sure it's not a charge fault but rather a software failure somewhere during boot.

All Programs And OS Are Hanging / Stop Responding?

Aug 25, 2014

By hanging i mean all programs stop responding however videos, file transfers and things that are already going on (anti virus scan, etc) still go on. I have to force shut down my computer (hold the power button).

This happens about 10-20 mins after starting up my computer.

PS I ran all kinds of anti malware, anti adware, anti virus, anti autoexec, anti phising, and more. Something weird i noticed is that something (a program i assume) always tries to put off my auto updates but winpatrol detects it and i never allow it to make those changes.

Malwarebytes found 5, but by the time it found those 5, ALL programs were hung up including malwarebytes. Spywareterminator found 11, same problem, it got hung up.

How To Stop 8.1 From Changing Volume Setting

Dec 16, 2013

I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Win 8 (shoulda done more homework, but too late now!). Now when my speakers are plugged into my headphone jack, my volume control gets set back to 42ish. When I try to set it higher, I get a nanny warning about high volume causing hearing damage, and have to select "allow", which lets me change the setting, but sets it right back when I go to sleep mode or shut down. Most annoying as I use my laptop with speakers all the time as an entertainment center. Samsung, Windows 8.1 64bit, just updated audio driver, too.
