Windows 8.1 - System Restore Button Is Not Working

Sep 15, 2014

This button is not working. The window doesnt hang. There is no error message. It just doesnt say anything. I am trying to install Visual Studio 2013. It needs to create a system restore point before starting installation. Needless to say, it fails too. I am on Windows 8.1. I ran sfc /scannow with no results.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 Dell Laptop - System Restore Not Working?

Jul 4, 2014

I have a windows 8.1 dell laptop ,for some reason system restore is not creating points manually or automatically, when I try to make a restore point manually the working bar just keeps moving at the sane time though I noticed in the device manger a generic volume shadow copy entry will show up with a yellow mark beside it ,I have tried maybe 10-15 times to uninstall this and try system restore again ,but this keeps repeating itself,

I have also went into safe mode but system restore points can't be made under safe mode, I did the repository thing where I rename that folder to old and reset repository in safe mode ,same result .

Some Programs Not Working After System Restore

Sep 6, 2014

so after I did windows updates after a long time (it's for a good reason that I am not updating) the notebook failed to start correctly. After the windows loading screen, only different tones of black were flashing - probably bad graphics driver. Anyway, I managed to do a system restore. Although it said it wasn't successful, it works But now some programs won't start. From Adobe, AfterEffects starts without problems, but Photoshop and Illustrator has an error: [URL]

When I try to uninstall Office completely, the set-up window doesn't even come up. And what's worse... when I run a new installation from a disk, there's an error too. [URL]

I've never come across something like this.. I don't know what to do.

Edit: So I managed to uninstall Office through a 3rd party software.. but I still have trouble installing it back (a different error now). I run as administrator and have full user rights on the folder..

Lenovo Laptop Fan Not Working With System?

Nov 29, 2013

So just few days ago i was playing with my laptop and it got really slow, I though it might be programs I've had opened or something but I just noticed something

My fan doesn't seem to work when my CPU needs it, i used core-temp and the temperatures are at something like 80C and it feels much hotter than usual, however when i use the battery management to clear out the dust, the fan seems to work

I tried to install tpfancontrol but it gave me a winio.sys error, after some googling, it seems this is the program that allows communication between the hardware and the system.

Im running on windows 8 on a lenovo laptop g500, and it seems my fan works, but can't communicate with my system when it needs it?

System Recovery Not Working On Samsung Laptop

Aug 11, 2014

I have a client's laptop which is a Samsung Model NP350V5C-A01us and I am trying to recovery the OS or more than likely do a clean install.

Customer reloaded BIOS to factory default prior to bringing it to me. Client even tried the recovery disk that came with the laptop.

This is what both the client and I are getting: see attached image.

All the options that show in the image when pressed leads back to the same Recovery screen.

I cannot get the DVD to boot from but the Disk is running. So not sure if the laser is of the DVD is not working.

Major System Corruption / USB Recovery Not Working

Sep 15, 2014

My desk top was working when I turned it off yesterday, i turned it back on this morning to discover it got stuck on the start menu screen, so I turned it off and turned it back on (it apparently was having this issue a few days ago when a friend was using it, he reset it several times). When it turned back on and I logged in, the screen kept flickering between the desk top and what i assume is the start menu. It won't even load the desktop/start bar icons.

I've tried booting in safe mode and the same problem but it gave me an error message,I/O unexpected error 0xc00000e9. so i decided to boot from a recovery USB, and now its telling me that the media isn't valid. I don't want to wipe it as it has valuable documents on it.

tldr, I broke 8.1 and my recovery isn't working.

I have another windows 8.1 machine that I used to create the recovery USB.

Uninstalled MS Office - System Restore Not Working

Aug 16, 2014

My main problem is that I accidentally uninstalled MS Office earlier today from my Dell Inspiron which I bought in 2012; the second problem is that I can't do a system restore to get it back to the point before the accidental un-installation. I'm on Windows 8. It keeps telling me there's something wrong but when I run a check on the C: drive, everything comes up fine. I opened the computer in safe mode, do a system restore and same thing happens - error.

I don't know if I can locate the original MS Office card that I received when I got the computer, to re-install the program, which is why I'm in a bit of a panic right now.

Maintenance :: System Restore / Refresh Not Working Completely

Oct 20, 2013

A month back I accidentally deleted the wow6432 node from my registry under system_user. I believe this is the root of all my problems. Once I did that, my toshiba c885 D 64 bit would not boot. I forced the computer to shut down and pressed f12 to get to the system recovery options. I then restored to a point before my blunder. Well, my laptop worked for a while and then magically the screen goes black and will not reboot. I did sestem restore a few more times since I could get a little bit of work done in between restoring and the screen turning black again. After I was fed up with having to run system restore every other day, I decided to run system refresh to keep my files but reset everything else. After restoring I am getting the same problem and find myself again running system restore every other day just to keep working.

My questions are if I completely reinstall windows 8 and start from scratch, will this definitely solve the problem? I thought system refresh would have worked, so I'm not sure. Also, are there any other available options for me to fix my computer without starting from scratch?

Unable To Edit MP3 Properties In Windows 8

Oct 29, 2013

I have just recently acquired a brand new laptop running Windows 8, and I'm experiencing an issue with editing the details of MP3 files. I can right-click any MP3 to open its properties and access the Details tab, but when I click on the fields for the different tags, nothing happens.

I don't recall ever having this issue on my previous laptop with Windows Vista, so I'm at loss trying to understand what is going on here. I'm not very tech savvy about the subject of permissions and accessibility, but it doesn't really seem to be related to that. The files are listed under my local user directory.

Audio Driver Stops Working - System Hangs At Shutdown

Jul 13, 2014

For the past few days my laptop, a Windows 8 Samsung model with Intel core i5, has been acting up for the first time since I purchased it last year. I've been away on vacation for three weeks, and have not used it during that period, so when I returned the system naturally installed itself with new updates. But ever since then, my audio driver has not worked whenever I initially booted the computer (i.e. there is no sound); interestingly, YouTube videos also refuse to load. It is only when I restart the computer, or disable then enable the driver manually, that things return to normal. Or, at least, somewhat.

For when I try to shutdown the system, the computer hangs and just doesn't shutdown. It seemingly performs the processes required for it, the screen darkens, but the system does not power off. The first time I had to manually turn off the power, but last night I simply let it continue with the hope that it would shutdown eventually. It did... but only because my laptop battery ran out.

Before System Restore recommended, I tried that route already. No matter which restore point I used, the system told me that each restore was unsuccessful due to the possibility that my C drive was corrupt. I don't know if that's the case - certainly something is wrong - but I'm at a loss as to exactly what to do.

Apps / Software :: After System Restore Majority Of Programs Not Working

Aug 5, 2014

My laptop (Dell Inspiron 2013 64-bit) was playing up today and instead of restarting it, I foolishly clicked on the option to "refresh the pc". Little did I know that this would remove all my current programs....

I decided then to do a System Restore. Now, all my programs are back, however, the majority of my programs such Firefox, Microsoft Office and such will not even open!!!

I would just like to know if there is anyway to get these programs running again without having to reinstall them all?

Wireless Status Tab In Mouse Properties Not Available In Windows 8

In Windows 7 the mouse properties sheet had a "wireless" status tab. The PC also warned when the signal was low.

Neither of these items is available in Windows 8, using the Keyboard Center latest software. Is something missing?

Maintenance :: Stuck In Automatic Repair Loop - System Restore Not Working

May 12, 2014

My Toshiba laptop/Windows 8.1 installed a VLC Media player & Malware bytes today. I was instructed to Restart as 'drivers not working properly' & since then have been on the Automatic Repair loop. It says it cannot fix it - log file: C:WINDOWSSystem32LogfilesSrtSrtTrail.txt, & I tried a few System Restore points but that just says -

System Restore could not access a file. This is probably because an anti-virus program is running on the computer . Temporarily disable your antivirus program and retry System Restore. You can try System Restore again If you continue to see this error, you can try an advanced recovery method.

Thing is I can't get into Windows or my laptop to disable the antivirus program.

I don't have any CD or DVD & no product key as the disc has been misplaced.

Hardware Drivers :: Dell XPS 7100 System - Keyboard And Mouse Not Working?

Jul 18, 2014

No keyboard or mouse by attempting to add safe mode with networking. What is UEFI? Where do I find this USB viewable option as I am connected by USB?

I went to set up (F2 at boot) > and then searched around for anything that relates to USB and found that USB is enabled and on high speed. Hope that is not it and I am missing something, because I still have no mouse or keyboard.

Keyboard and mouse are the ones that came with the Dell XPS 7100 system. I'll try different USB ports and report back...didn't make a difference.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Cannot Access Wireless Properties Or Save Password

Dec 28, 2012

Every time I sign into my windows 8 account at home it never automatically connects to it. I tried following the tutorial at [URL]......

However when I get up to the part where you are support to right click on the wifi connection to access view connection properties I am unable to. Right clicking on the wireless connection does absolutely nothing. I even tried clicking on it and holding and still nothing.

When I go to the network and sharing center and click on the wireless connection it pops up a dialogue called wi-fi status. However there is no button for wireless properties. I remember in windows 7 there use to be a tab where you change the key encryption type and there was a check box where you can save the password. Essentially I can't access the dialog box in page 10 of the above link.

How To Get To Properties Of A Shortcut In Win 8

May 3, 2013

But I'm afraid there is not a setting in Windows 8 to get this done. Okay, then I handle the programs seperately! Until Windows 8 I could always rightclick a shortcut, then get "Properties", then I chose "Maximized". But to my unpleasant surprise I only get the latest documents (Which is very handy indeed!), and a choice to "Loosen the program of the taskbar".

No Navigation Tab On Taskbar Properties

Nov 23, 2013

I cannot seem to get the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane, only the "taskbar properties" pane. I am running as administrator and have upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 on a new laptap that I have just purchased, but am still having trouble getting the "taskbar and navigation properties" when I right click the taskbar.

The "taskbar properties" only gives me three tabs ie. taskbar, jump lists and properties, but I need to access the navigation tab on the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane.

Win 8 64bit - Can't Edit MP3 Details In Properties

Aug 28, 2013

My previous OS was Windows 7 64-bit. I used rip my favorite music tracks and was able to edit the details in the Details tab of the Properties window after right-clicking on the file name. The system hardware is the same. OS is now Windows 8 64-bit. But when I open the mp3 file's property window and go to the details tab, I get fewer options in detail and I CANNOT edit any one of them. I have run sfc - no problem. I have opened the Explorer as Administrator and still the same issue. Here's the screen capture:

I am the sole user of the desktop PC. And that I have another PC at another place with same configuration also running Win 8 64-bit. On that PC for the same file I see more details on the screen and I can edit the fields. I might post the capture from that PC later when I go there. I also ran the mp3Tag to get over the possible issue with ID3 tags.

Properties Option In Menus Not Work Normally?

Jan 17, 2014

First of all I want to say that this is not much big of a deal to me but still annoying nonetheless. I noticed that in some scenarios, for some reason, the "Properties" option in the rightclick menu of a file doesn't do anything when clicked on. You'd expect that a properties box of the concerning file would show up but nothing is happening. So far I noticed this in the following 2 scenarios:

1. When selecting multiple files in the Recycle Bin at once and then right click and choose Properties. Selecting only one file in the recycle bin and clicking Properties does work normally.
2. When right clicking on a picture that is shown with Windows Photo Viewer and then choosing Properties.

Are these bugs that Microsoft developers might have missed or is my PC at fault here? I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro x64 with Medica Center.

Different Characters In File Properties Instead Of Numbers

Feb 1, 2014

I am using a Dell laptop with Windows 8 Home. The file Properties show strange symbol-type characters where there should be numbers etc. See Screenshot...

It's been like this for a while and I have probably installed half a dozen programs etc. so I don't know what did it. I don't want to upgrade to v.8.1 as it took me ages to get a 3rd party Start button set up and 8.1 over-writes it I rolled back to a previous image of v.8.0 (True Image not System Restore).
