I am so confused about where outlook 2013 keeps things.
I have installed Outlook 2013 and would like to import my contacts from my outlook 2007 in another computer. I have already prepared the contacts.pst file from outlook 2007 and made it available in my public folders. I then imported the .pst file into Outlook 2013 via network. However the contacts shows up as a separate contact list rather than integrated into the outlook 2013 address book . How to correct it?
Outlook 2013 won't set up an email account if the TEST SEND EMAIL fails.
This is a really strange error -- if you are in some places often your ISP won't let you logon to your email server to SEND email from programs like OUTLOOK (SPAM protection amongst other things) but insist that you use their webmail unless you are actually LOGGED ON to the ISP.
ISP's have no problem with you READING Email while on say a public / other Wi-Fi system but often restrict the SENDING of emails through their servers from such Wi-Fi accesses - you often have to be logged on to your own ISP.
So if you are trying to set up the account while you are staying in a Hotel and using their broadband service it fails -- all I want is to be able to READ email until I can logon at home.
I can SEND via webmail or mobile phone so the stupid install process shouldn't stop me CREATING an account even if for the moment I can't use it for SENDING.
Rolled back to Office 2010 -- Outlook 2010 works fine - you can SKIP the test email send --this is what they should allow on Outlook 2013 as well. !!!!!
What we are supposed to use in replacement of Public/AppData? I have configured one Outlook 2013 IMAP profile which will be shared (1 mailbox) for all users that logon to this specific machine. In other words, if somebody logs on to the machine and launches outlook, it will launch access to this specific IMAP mailbox that I have pre-configured.
I want to transfer the contacts from a vista pc. the vista pc uses office 2007. I want to export or transfer the contacts from that pc to a windows 8.1 pc that has outlook 2013 installed. I tried WET, but that doesn't work with 8.1 from vista.
I am trying to send a remote assistance invitation by e-mail from one machine using 8.1 to another machine using 8.1 Window tells me I don't have a compatible e-mail program ... I am using Outlook 2013! I am paying a monthly fee for Outlook 2013 and I would like it to be fully compatible with Windows 8.1.
I know I can save the invitation to a file and attach it to e-mail. However I want to make this as easy as possible for a very elderly computer user. If she knew how to attach files and she would not need remote assistance. Is the free Thunderbird compatible?
My contacts are in apps. windows 8 and in outlook 2013. I wish to use them on the computer of my friend working with windows vista. I can export my contacts in .pst folder or in common separated values but I don't know how to open and/or use the folder with the contacts in windows vista.
Instead of going into my hotmail.com online account to check my email, I access email via Outlook. I used to have folders full of emails in Outlook; the folders are still there, but none of the emails are in them. If I sign in to my hotmail.com account on line, all of the folders contain the emails. Why the emails no longer show up in the Outlook folders?
I have just installed Outlook 2013 and started my mail account. Unfortunately I let Outlook configure my email account automatically and it configured as IMAP and not a POP account so I have an OST instead of a pst
what is the best way to delete the account I created and start again this time configuring the servers manually ?
Ever since skype updated to 6.14, I've been seeing excessive ram use after only a couple hours.
So..I devised a simple test, I closed and then relaunched skype to free the ram and then timed it.. after 3 hours roughly.. heres the ram consumption by skype...
The only things that have business seeing that kind of ram use are games(starwars the old republic can reach a gig and a half's consumption before Windows 8 starts shedding non essential items from the cached memory), flash games, streaming videos, 3d modelling programs, and a few other things I cant think of off the top of my head.
that said..thats grossly excessive use there.
Its not a virus, its not malware or spyware, I've already scanned for that...twice, using extensive scan options.
I cleared my message cache, reset IE as I know skype uses some of those settings, uninstalled and reinstalled skype.. past nuking my current os install I've got nothing left to throw at this.
I'm playing watch dogs which needs 6GB ram on a 4GB ram PC.
I run compact tray meter and one thing I notice is that the ram usage never goes more than 80%. In fact, whenever it loads stuff from the HDD ( I could see HDD usage 100% and stuttering in my game), RAM usage decrease to 77-78%. VRAM is kind of healthy at only 52% of 2GB used.
I want to know why not all 100% of my RAM is used? Hardware reserve is only 145MB.
And why is the minimum system requirements for watch dogs a GTX460? I mean, I got a 645M, I can play it, my friends with a 640 and 630m can play it fine, our GPU temperature is just 80"C even after hours of playing.
I have Intel I7-3930K running at 3.9GHz and I've noticed that my CPU utilization never goes over 50%, even when rendering, or playing cpu demanding games like BF4. It's also causing huge hiccups(CPU spikes) every 2 minutes or so, while playing games. I've installed all windows updates and latest drivers, disabled all unnecessary programs and tasks.
Randomly my disk usage will rocket up to 100% and sit there locking up my computer and freezing things that i am doing. problems started right out of the box when i got my laptop. CCleaner seemed to lower the amount of times it happens, but it still occurs. I've ran virus/malware scans there is nothing. so its ether windows doing stuff on its own randomly then consuming my whole disk or its having compatibility issues with some program that i have running. this is interfering with gaming and school work. I will include pics of multiple instances of it locking up. I can also include a list of the programs I have on here.
i have an Acer Aspire V3 772G 9653 intel core i7 - 4702MQ Nvidia Geforce GTX 760M 8 GB DDR3 memory 1 TB hard drive
For first 4 days my Windows 8 runs perfect. But after when i started my PC i get about 15 min. freeze. Later i saw in my task manager, when lag happens my Disk Usage go to 100%, i didn't saw any process, what have some big usage. My processes was only at 0 MB - 0.1MB and disk usage was at 100%.
After putting my computer to hibernate and powering it back on, my disk usage would stay at 100%. All the transfer speeds are around 0.1 mb/s and I'm not sure what could be causing the 100% disk usage.
Another thing is that it windows notifies me to scan my hard drive for errors, which I have done, but this keeps repeatedly happening.
I've been on 8.1 for some time now and just noticed that my CPU usage is always showing up in Task Manager as 100%, no matter what combination of programs are using it. No single program seems to be the culprit for hogging it. The usage values bounce around like crazy, but the column total is stuck at 100%.
I don't notice any lag or slowness as a result like I should if the CPU WERE at 100% load. It's an older Core i7 Quad in a Dell Precision M6500 laptop.
I am quite OCD about things running in the background unnecessarily and have disabled a lot of startup items.
I put a screen cap here, but it isn't perhaps a great example since SnagIt APPEARS to be hogging the CPU to do the capture, but I can assure you, it is not this intensive. If I quit that, some other random process just takes 30%+ and others keep filling in the gaps so that the total is always 99-100%. Very strange. If NOTHING else is going on, Task Manager will shoot up to near 100%.
Is Windows 8 supposed to have a System Idle Process?
The other thing is that this machine's fans are NOT running full blast to keep heat down like they would if it were under full load. Is something just not reporting right?
I'm using the same programs as my old system which also had the same amount of ram (2x4GB 1600MHZ) and the usage was very low.
This PC was only built 4 days ago the current ram is 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair Vengeance Pro, 2133MHz, CAS 11-11-11-30, 1.5V
The first two days that the PC was built I noticed the idle usage at 88% and if i ran a program it would hit 100% and pretty much freeze the PC so it's not an error in the display.
Mobo is MSI Z87-GD65 and I'm running Windows 8.1 with no updates.
Probably not anything to do with it, but i'm running beta amd video drivers and it's showing my card as 5GB, I'm planning to uninstall beta drivers and run updates. Just wanted to know of others opinions.
I encountered a problem a few weeks ago after I refreshed my laptop when it started refreshing the desktop constantly to the point where I couldn't do anything. After the refresh, the desktop was back to normal, though I noticed my disk usage in the task manager was constantly at 100%. I've been troubleshooting this problem by upgrading from Windows 8 to 8.1, I've run chkdsk.exe /f /r, I defragged the disk, ran a virus scan, etc. The only thing that is disabling the service 'superfetch' and/or 'Windows search', though the problem can still arise after doing so. Every now and then the disk usage goes back to it's regular 2-8% but then randomly shoots back up to 70-85-99-100%. It's causing some occasional slowdown.
Here's a screen cap of my resource monitor when it's at 100%:
And here are the specs of my laptop: -Model: Acer Aspire V5-552 -CPU: AMD Quad-Core A10-5757M @2.5GHz -RAM: 6GB DDR3 Memory -HDD: 1000GB -OS: Windows 8.1
I bought this Vaio with Core i5-3210M, 4Gb Ram, Windows 8 64 bit. I had really high hopes for it, coming from an i3. For the first few weeks it worked fine, but then it started to freeze while watching movies. Then it started happening all the time, and the cooling fan became consistently noisy for working at full capacity.
I was used to opening task manager on older systems when this happened to see if there was a non-responding program and force it closed, so I noticed Task Manager offers some more features in Win 8. Here, I see that CPU usage is high, staying always around 70% and from time to time reaching 100. At this moment, the process taking the biggest slice is called VCS System Tray with 58%.
What's perhaps more concerning, is that Disk usage is almost constantly on 100%. And by this I mean it reaches 100 and stays there for long periods of time, perhaps up to 20 minutes, then it falls down a few seconds and up again to 100. During this time the computer is excruciatingly painful to use. To even open a program takes forever. When this happens, it seems that Chrome is at the top of the list of processes with most disk usage, with about 1-2Mbps, but this sometimes changes and the list can be led by System, Utorrent, Octoshape, VCS System Tray, Communications Service...I think it's not related to any process by itself, but its nearly ALWAYS at 100%.
Finally, memory usage is also pretty high at 78%, but I guess this may be because 4Gb is not too much for this computer. I'm hoping to upgrade to 8 soon. Out of the 10 processes consuming most memory, 9 is Google Chrome (how's that even possible?).
I bought new lenovo ideapad Z400 touch 2 month ago with Windows 8. Last week i upgraded to win 8.1 and recover back to win 8 , since then i have some problems.
When I have the Task Manager open, I notice the disk usage climbing to 50, 75, 100 also the CPU , even though there's scarcely any disk activity going on, the laptop's fan is working harder and very noisy , my processor's speed and heat are jumping high without any programs on.
I tried almost anything, checked for viruses, disabled unnecessary startup programs, clean boot, but it still the same.
I did a fresh install of windows 8 twice and the problem still persists. I think I have tried every solution offered by google so far and I am at my wits end. It causes freezing in video games and I just want to play all these cool games I bought on steam, not to mention browse the internet without freezing.
