In many programs there are keyboard shortcuts . They are shown as capital letters with a line underneath. How does one use them? I've tried the letter with control key, shift key and alt key and frequently combinations of them but cant get any response.
Previously with win7, I had a Windows 8 dually installed. Back then, I used to get the first error only, very frequently, and only in Windows 8. I had ignored them because I had Windows 8 installed only for testing purposes, and I thought they would go away. But now, they just keep popping up, with the reference by pointer error popping up 4 damn times in a row. And may I also add just how slow my PC gets before a BSOD?
I've tried looking them up, but the solutions seem to involve the removal of different drivers. So I thought of just creating a new thread instead. I have a few games installed and I do overclock my pc sometimes, but the recent BSOD (irql) took place when I was watching a video on youtube. I am attaching the SF grab and a bluescreenview report (the 5th error in it is the dpc watchdog violation).
This might be completely irrelevant, but I'll mention it anyway. The previous Windows 8 is still installed. I tried deleting it from msconfig, and was successful, but the files are still there and it seems to be the 'system partition' right now. See my previous thread for more info.
Happened again. Uploading SF grab with bluescreenview report.
Happened a few more times. I'm trying to keep the logs updated. Another thing; my PC now seems to be very slow and sometimes when a crash occurs, all the online accounts I'm logged into (Facebook, Eight Forums, etc.) automatically logout. This was also the case in my earlier Windows 8 installation. And the latest crash appears to be of a different driver.
I have two BSOD problems. One is random, but mostly when I loaded games like BF4 ( 0x124 ) and one that occurs after start or hybernation ( 0x9F )
CPU : Amd phenom II 965 BE @ stock GPU : Amd Radeon HD6770 from Sapphire @ stock MEM: 2x2GB Kingston Valureram 1333 @ stock and 2x2GB Corsair valuethingy 1333 @ stock MB : Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 with the latest BIOS OS : Windows 8.1 Update 1 x64
The 0x124 doesnt give a BSOD at all, just a black screen. I have to hard reboot the pc to resolve. I narrowed the 0x124 down to 0x124_authenticamd_processor_bus_prv , I guess that has to do with the processorbus? Is my processor bad ?
I tested with prime95 torture and Furmark burn for about 15 minutes ( CPU < 50c, GPU<65c )and nothing happened
The 0x9F Seems to be coming from my logitech G110 Keyboard, as
0x9f_3_power_down_usbaudio_image_usbccgp.sys seems to refer to as my keyboard has usb audio which I use.The dumpfiles which are above 1MB are from the 0x9F, the minidumps are from the 0x124
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?
Can I delete these old folders from 2012 i posted a picture there are others with random numbers and letters as well that are not folders, they appear to have a windows KB file in theme are they safe to delete? Here is the picture...
When I turned my laptop on for the first time, it installed Windows 8 automatically, which made me think there is a hidden volume somewhere on the hard drive. I listed all the volumes using DiskPart utility and it showed me some hidden ones, as expected. What I want to do now is to explore the hidden volumes' contents, and retrieve the drivers from there if possible. But the problem is, I don't know how to list the contents of those volumes. I could've used DIR command if they were accessible through the letters, but unfortunately they don't have any letters associated with them. how I can list the contents of the hidden volumes.
I just upgraded Win 8 on my Acer Iconia W3 Tablet (x86) to Windows 8.1. But now I have the problem that in the settings-app and in the righten menu (e.g. the search-function) every text is just a white (or sometimes black) box. In other Apps and on the desktop-applications the text is displayed correctly; and before I have installed Windows 8.1 everything was fine too. Below are two screenshots which should describe the problem.
I just upgraded to Win 8 and as I did my multiple external drives got assigned letters that are not what I had before. No problem. I went o Disk Management to reassign the drive letter but letters J, K, L, and M are not available. There are ones before and after those letters that are available but I need those letters.
Ok I have a Alienware M17XR2 laptop. I just installed windows 8.1 from a formatted start. Got most of the drivers functioning. I have an unknown device which I will address in another thread. Anyway my keyboard lags sometimes while I am typing fast. Never did that on my Windows 7. I'm running 64 bit as well.
windows 2008 R2 server, win 7 and win 8.1 wkstations.
For one domain admin user only, when he logs in he sees normal mapped drives. The longer he's working, he starts seeing more and more letters mapped to the same particular network share. So after a few hours he'll have 12 drive letters all mapped to the same network share.
Doesn't matter what workstation. Doesn't seem to be a particular application.
When entering letters and numbers, that I believe are used to prevent Robo emails, do I have to use upper and lower case letters? I have a heck of a time getting those to take, and have to repeat them several times.
A keyboard icon shows on task bar but I must manually touch. I am referring to an automatic pop up when in a text box (in desktop, not on Metro where it does pop up). In Win 7 the keyboard always pops up but MS changed the setting for Win 8 - I am running Win8 on a Samsing ATIV tablet
I use keyboard shortcuts extensively. Some are application specific, some are system shortcuts. I am finding that Windows 8 shortcuts are overriding shortcuts I use in some applications, and I would like to be able to delete or reassign the system shortcut so I can use it in an application. However, while there is a myriad of posts on different people's ideas of "essential" keyboard shortcuts, I can find no information on how to change shortcuts.
1. Keys do not work in Any of Internet Browsers. Even on-screen keyboard does not work. 2. Every time I double click a file, A pop-up "Do you want xyz to make changes to the computer ?" is welcoming me! 3. I click on any of the icons in the task-bar and a new window is opening. For example, If I click on the firefox icon pinned at the bottom, Every instance I click it, a new window is opening 4. I am not able to open a folder by double click. I can only open it by right click and then Open 5. None of the keys and keyboard shorcuts seem to work. But that is not the problem with keyboard because, I am able to type words in Wordpad and Notepad
I formatted my Windows 8 twice and still these problems are there.
Even if I restart it, things work fine for 5 min and then the problem would be back.
After installing Windows 8 over Windows 7 on a Dell computer all worked well except for the Logitech wireless keyboard. When the shifted number keys were struck they printed an ASCII letter rather than their normal character. I substituted a USB keyboard with the same result. I have found no way to make the shifted number keys work correctly on this computer with Windows 8 installed. After restoring Windows 7, all worked correctly again. Am I alone with this problem? I would like to reinstall Windows 8.
I have two keyboards loaded in Windows 8 Pro: US English , and US International. How do I make US International primary? The examples given always list English and Danish for instance, so you can move one up or down. But in my case, I always see one keyboard, even though both are active.
On smartphones when you place the cursor inside a text box the keyboard pops up automatically but on my Lenovo Yoga in tablet mode this is not the case. I have to tap the tiny little keyboard icon on the bottom taskbar for it to come up.
Is this normal for Win 8.1 machines? It seems a bit weird and certainly counterintuitive.
I restarted my computer because I was getting rid of KasperSky and needed to restart. And all of a sudden, my keyboard isn't working anymore. I changed the batteries so that's not it, also it lights up. I had this vaio tap for over 30 days already and this suddenly happened. Right now I am using a laptop.
I'm running Windows 8.1, and never had problems with my wireless mouse ad keyboard. But my keyboard has a real problem, and I tried with a normal PS2 keyoard. But it wasn't recognized. I read, that when we use a USB mouse or keyboard, the PS2 is disabled. I tried the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHIE/CurrentControlSet/i8042prt and edited the value of "START" from 3 to 1.
But it didn't work. Is there another way to enable PS2 keyboards again?
I'm using a ASUS Notebook K53E Series laptop computer running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1... I'm using a HDMI to project onto a HD TV I have a USB keyboard and mouse hooked up, both Logitech... The problem I'm having is, both the mouse and keyboard keep disconnecting on me... The mouse will go first' I'll move it from one USB port to the other, and it will work, but then stop working again... The keyboard will just stop working, even if I move it I can't get it to reconnect... I have to shutdown my computer to get everything to start working again, but it will only last about a half hour before they stop working again after the reboot...
I've went into the device manager, under Universal Serial Bus controllers > Generic USB Hub > properties > Power Management, and unchecked "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power... This does not work... I then uninstalled it, and rebooted my computer, still doesn't work... I then tried to system restore, I couldn't because I had no restore points, I then look if there was any system updates, there was, but minor updates, I updated them anyways, still no go... I'm only having problems with the USB mouse and keyboard... My laptop touch pad and everything else works fine...
i've been using windows 8.1 for a little time in my new Sony notebook. First, i used windows 8 and had no problems, my keyboard layout was the correct one (Spanish - Latin America, 'cause i'm from Argentina). But after an upgrade to windows 8.1, the default layout was set to Traditional Spanish wich does not suit the layout I see on my keyboard, signs are misplaced. I went to the control panel and under the idioms settings i set Latin American layout to my keyboard, but even with the correct configuration (checked with the layout image that is shown in the configuration menu), signs like ` and @ are still misplaced. What can I do?

i recently purchased a Surface Pro 3. I had the option of buying a keyboard cover, but they would only discount it to $20 cheaper, so i declined with the intention of buying one online for a better price. It seems that in Australia, the red keyboard is also not available, which is the one i want. If a foreign keyboard would be compatible?
