Maintenance :: Windows 8 Upgrade Has Rendered Computer Unusable

Nov 23, 2012

Windows 8. I upgraded my Dell laptop the weekend it came out and performance on my laptop has slowly degraded. Now I'm too the point where my computer is so slow, it just won't work. Reboots take forever. 10-15 minutes from startup until I can login. Another 10-15 minutes before the Desktop is up. But still, apps won't launch. When I can launch the Task Manager, it says my hard drive is at 100% utilization, even though I have not launched any apps. I went through and removed unneccesary items from the startup menu. My computer is a couple years old, but I was under the impression that if the computer ran Win7, it could run Windows 8. My computer has an Intel Centrino 2 processor with 8GB RAM.

How do I go about doing a reinstall of the OS? When I originally upgraded, I selected the "Bring Nothing Over" option.

Graphic Cards :: Win 8.1 RTM - No Smooth 3D Graphics And No Fullscreen In DOS Mode

Sep 27, 2013

I am currently using Windows 7 32-bit and when I did a clean install of Windows 8 Pro on my PC, I noticed that there was no smooth 3D Graphics nor full-screen mode in DOS mode (the cmd.exe prompt) on my PC. I have an "Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family" built-in display adoptor on my PC. Any workaround for this problem (except for buying a new graphics card)? And can I also install Win 8.1 RTM on my PC?

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Changing Fonts By Modifying UITHEME

Jun 26, 2014

Changing fonts by modifying the UITHEME.DLL temporarily using ResourceEditor.exe? Attempting to figure out a way to modify 8.1 fonts by utilizing registry tweaks, I happened to stumble upon this modification. I was able to make the modification, lost "aero" temporarily, edited the font titles via registry by changing the HEX entries, restart, fonts changed (along with colors), and then removed the tweak to the .dll, aero back.

Windows 8 64-bit Computer - Some Of Characters On Special Fonts (TTF) Do Not Show

Sep 5, 2013

I have a number of special fonts (all are .ttf) that I installed, and some that came with software for use with the programs. All of these fonts worked fine when installed on my Windows 7 64-bit computer.

I have installed all of these fonts on my Windows 8 64-bit computer, and some of the characters on the fonts do not show. Windows has substituted other characters in place of these.

Yet when I open the font in a third party program like Font Creator, all of the characters on the font appear true.

Is there a setting in Windows 8 that I need to adjust so the characters will show as they are supposed to?

Windows 8 - Fuzzy Fonts At Native Resolution 1600x900

Jan 23, 2013

When I run Windows 8 in the native 1600x900 resolution of this monitor, text all over the place becomes very fuzzy. I had to drop it to 1440x900 to have smooth text.

Any way to fix this? One of my Windows 8 PCs at home runs at 1600x900 and the text on it looks just fine. Does it have something to do with the video driver?

Apps / Software :: How To Delete Unwanted Protected System Fonts / Windows 8.1

Sep 15, 2014

how to delete the masses of unwanted foreign 'system fonts' that came with my new Win 8.1 machine.

I know they don't slow up staring time in this version of Windows but they wreck your font selection in word processors. The 'hide' command is already on but it does nothing, they still show up in the font selection.

This system is:-

Asus T200 transformer
Windows 8.1
system is fresh apart from installation of a start menu and word processor.

[I use 6 a month old desktop with XP as my main computer]

Fonts Not Showing Up?

Jul 5, 2014

I have pasted some English alphabet OpenType font files into control panel / appearance and personalisation / fonts but they do not show up in the fonts folder. If I try to paste the files again it tells me "the gotham light file font is already installed - do you want to replace it?"

So if the font files are installed why can't I see them in the fonts folder?

I have tried unchecking "hide fonts based on language settings" but that does not seem to work. The fonts do not show up in Microsoft Word or Adobe CS6 and I get the same problem on my Windows 7 machine.

Too Many Fonts Crashing Programs

Aug 9, 2013

I installed a pack of 10000 (ya) fonts. Now I can't change fonts on any program, when I use the drop down menu for fonts, the program just crashes.

I've gone into task manager and can't find any program that would be using these fonts.

I'll post my full task manager list in the following links below so you can see if you can find anything that could be using the fonts:

1. [URL] .....

Unable To See Fonts In WMC 8.1 Plugins

May 18, 2014

I was running Windows 8.0 with WMC and then I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and now my WMC's plugins (I have HD TV Recorder & Media Browser) are both unusable because I can't see the text anymore - it is just a blank place where the text used to be - I know these programs are otherwise working because I can navigate among the titles and see the background images so I know it is working, but I can't use them.

How To Turn All Fonts Back To Normal

Nov 26, 2013

Setup Installation :: Hidden Fonts Continue To Display In Applications?

Dec 8, 2013

I have hidden all of the foreign language fonts that are Windows 8.1 system fonts. However, the hidden fonts continue to display in Office 2010, Adobe Creative Cloud and Corel Draw X6, as well as other programs and applications.

How do I prevent the fonts from displaying or better -- which ones can be deleted? Surely Windows will function in the U.S. without a Himalayan font loaded.

I've tried using a third party font manager, both NexusFont and Bitstream Font Navigator, but with no improved results.

Apps / Software :: Cannot Delete Surplus Fonts - Protected System Font

Sep 11, 2012

Windows 8 comes with a whole lot of fonts pre-installed, quite a few of which I do not need and are merely cluttering up the place. I would especially like to get rid of the specialised fonts for Japanese, Chinese, Hebrew, Arabic, Indian etc, etc & so 4th.

However, for many of them, when I try to delete them, I get the message that they are "protected system fonts". Surely, there aren't that many system fonts? Can we not get rid of or hide these fonts any more? Surely they are an unnecessary drain on resources, and boot-time extenders?

Feb 8, 2013

When Windows 8 menu appears on start and I choose W7 - instead of loading W7directly , the computer is new-starting again and only than starts w7. That's a funny "behaviour"....

Network / Sharing :: Connecting To Windows 8 Laptop From Windows 7 - Sign In Credentials Not Accepted

May 6, 2013

Have a question regarding "Local Account". I'm having problems connecting to the Win 8 laptop from Win 7 as it will not accept my sign in credentials. With that, am I to assume that this is because the credential aren't "Local", and thus this is what this is for???

It will not accept the "Microsoft" account I use to log into Win 8 laptop.

With that, if I choose to go with the "local account" can I easily switch back to the Microsoft one?

Setup Installation :: How To Install Windows 7 Along Side Factory Installed Windows 8

Jul 2, 2013

In a few days I will receive a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon with Windows 8 installed. And separately I will receive an OEM Win7. Win7 is certainly what I intend to use, and I had originally thought I would wipe out Windows 8 and install Win7. But now I am wondering if I can somehow preserve Windows 8 for occasional use. (I would have ordered the machine with Win7 but this is a refurbished machine.)

I would rather not have to understand UEFI. (I'm sure it would be interesting, I just have other things to do with my time.) And, although I do it sometimes, and will if I have to, I do not like diddling with BIOS settings.

I know that factory installed operating systems generally can't be moved to other machines. And I fear that the factory installed Windows 8 that I will receive may not even tolerate being installed, e.g., in a smaller partition or under something like VMware (another complication I'd like to avoid).

Debugging :: Post-BSOD Factory Reset Downgrade From Windows 8 To Windows 7

Aug 3, 2014

I have a Samsung Series 5, 530U (the remaining digits I don't recall right now).

I purchased it from a digital superstore, like a market, rather than a regular PC store.

The device is set for Windows 7, although on purchase, I asked for Windows 8 to be installed.

Now, a BSOD has stopped me gaining access through refreshing, restarting, safe mode or any of the options available through the troubleshooting menu.

I retrieved my data using a SATA, and now wish to wipe the system of Windows 8, and avoid all the hassle it has brought me, returning to it's factory settings of W7.

I do not have a disk, or anything to do so. When I go through the menu on start-up, I click 'restore system' but I am then prompted for 'recovery mdeia or installation disk'.

Is it possible to just reset the whole PC and start from the day it left the factory?

If I need a disk to reset the original settings, where can I get it from and would simply loading it when prompted fix my problem?

All I want is to be able to use my own PC. I want Windows 8 cleared off and a reliable, original settings PC.
