why Windows 8 is not letting this HP 2000-2b09WM laptop have any audio. I've checked in the Device Manager and it has the legitimate driver from HP.com, but it's showing a red X on the speaker icon and when I hover over, it says: "No Audio Output Device is installed".
The current devices I have under 'Sound, video and game controllers" are:
AMD High Definition Audio DeviceRealtek High Definition Audio both have Code 52
I have tried deleting both drivers, and installed the correct ones from HP, but it always has code 52 once I restart. I disabled signature checking and the laptop did start with audio, but when I went to restart it, it lost audio again. I just did a scan with Malwarebytes which picked up a bunch of viruses, but it still has this issue.
Edit: It says it has 91MB worth of updates from Windows Update. I'm going to update them and see if anything changes.
I want to move files from my old Desktop (Windows 2000 Server) to my new Laptop (Windows 8.1 Pro).
I have a Router, an Ethernet Cable and a Crossover Cable.
Note: The Router (older Netgear) always shows up as "Unidentified network". However, I can successfully share the Laptop's Internet Connection to it via the Ethernet port. It is joined to the HomeGroup and is a Private network.
The Router's IP Address is 192.168.1.1 which I can connect to using the Smartphone over Wi-Fi.
I have asus x54h laptop which is running both on windows 7 and windows 8.1 (dual boot). The problem is I could not find the required drivers for windows 8.1 in asus website. Is there any place else where I can get them?
I have a 6 yr old Dell Dimension E520 currently running Windows 8. I tried to upgrade to 8.1 but have been denied because my processor doesn't support PAE, NX or SEE2. I've read some posts that stated that this was an issue preventing them from installing version 8. It wasn't an issue for me since 8 installed. My questions are why would this effect me now and is there a work around?
I have a laptop with a 3200 x 1800 screen and the toolbars and menus of Illustrator and Photoshop are nearly illegible due to their minuscule size. Indesign displays normally, as does Lightroom.
On the adobe forums, two entries - Adobe Community: Photoshop CC on a High DPI display on Windows 8.1 and Adobe Community: Photoshop CC / Windows 8.1 HiDPI / Retina scaling support - suggest this is due to Microsoft not supplying required APIs (whatever these are...).
3200 x 1800 is still new, but over four months have passed since the posts on the adobe forums and the problem endures. Surely a giant such as Microsoft should already have that loophole closed? It is quite astounding that such an issue should even exist in the first place.
I have a HP 310 1120a touchsmart all in one pc and my system is saying limited touch support 2 fingers, so as you can guess my touchscreen isn't working, but was under windows 7 when i got it, sometimes it works in windows 8 but not anymore, have updated all drivers but still nothing.... How to get it running again if i can .
I am trying to make a DVD with UEFI/GPT support for Windows 8
I have an ISO from MSDN - Windows 8.1 Pro VL (x64) - DVD (Danish) File Name:da_windows_8_1_pro_vl_x64_dvd_2971937.iso [URL] .....
The SHA1 for the ISO matches the one on MSDN
I used Hashtab v.5.1.23 to verify [URL] .....
If I burn the ISO and boot from the DVD created, it boot just fine in UEFI Bios.
But if I change the ei.cfg file to one of these:
[EditionID] [EditionID] Core (Blank) to have the choice to install Core or Pro [Channel] [Channel] OEM Retail [VL] [VL] 0 0
It will not boot in UEFI Bios, it work just fine in Legacy Bios. I can use the program Rufus [URL] .... to create a bootable USB drive, this works perfect. But I would really like to know how to make this work on a DVD. Or/and what I am missing.
I am developing a tablet experience that will be handed out to a number of employees in a number of stores. I want to customize the start screen a certain way and basically lock it so that employees (or customers) cannot move icons around, install new apps, or run unapproved applications.
I primarily use an Easycap to convert VHS tapes to digital video files, but unfortunately, I have my device plugged in, and tried installing a few drivers for it, but none of them worked. I've searched across the Internet for an EasyCap driver for Windows 8, but I couldn't even find one, and have come to the conclusion that Easycap doesn't support Windows 8 yet, unless there was something that I didn't know about.
I am getting a message saying your computer doesn't seem to support any version of Windows Media Player

I need some info re creating restore points. In the HP Support Assistant, under updates and tune-up-change tune-up tasks, should the "set restore point" be turned on to "yes" when a tune-up is scheduled? I understand that windows 8.1 automatically sets restore points, but I don't know how or when or where the restore point info is stored. Is the HP Support Assistant "set restore points" the actual method used by Microsoft or an additional option?
I have a brand new Asus laptop that had a problem with the battery. I sent it in to Asus on an RMA and when I got it back, the only partition on the laptop was the OS. Is there something I can do so I can re-install the OS some day? I thought if I can get my activation code some way, I could download Win 8 and re-install, but I am not sure if that will even work with Windows 8.
I am using Windows Virtual PC which was a 64-Bit version I installed, I got XP Home 32-Bit installed via it perfectly and tried to install Windows 8 x64 AND THEN Windows 8.1 x64 but on both I got the BSOD (in the Virtual Machine) almost straight away saying 64-bit CPU is not supported?
I've read this may be due to not having VTx but I do as my CPU is a 3470 (Ivy Bridge) and SIW says its enabled as does BIOS
I am testing some Windows ISO's to check to make sure they are OEM and ask for product key during install but also to diagnose a WSUS Offline issue in windows 8 that reverses all updates right at the end saying there was a problem, the software creator needs a log and I ain't got time at work.
how to install the Asus' MB support software, (like Ai suite, Turbo V, etc...) i need it for OC etc... they desn't want to install in Win 8, I tried with compatibility options, but it says that mb isn't supported...
I have a Pavilion G6-2357sa Notebook and I wanted to upgrade the sound drivers but I went on the HP website and I found out that HP doesnt support my drivers. How do I upgrade my audio drivers if isnt supported on the HP website?
In a few weeks (I can't wait! ) I will replace my laptop with the Surface Pro.
Right now, though, I have my laptop connected to two monitors: One via VGA and other via DVI. I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64, so this all works great.
So the big question is whether it is possible to have multi-monitor support via the one-and-only DisplayPort that is on the Surface Pro? If so, what--if any--additional hardware would I need?
When I'm docked at home and using my Surface Pro as laptop, I really need to keep the functionality of using both external monitors (one is 31" and the other 29"). I would really hate to go back to only being able to use one.
I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and I am running Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1.
I have been unsuccessful at building a WinPE image that provides BitLocker support. I searched around the internet and found many posts. Eventually, I ended up trying to build it with the various added packages I discovered in the various posts. However, in the end, none worked and this is the message I am getting after booting into my WinPE environment:
manage-bde.exe - Application Error
The instruction at 0xa20afa3b referenced memory at 0x0000013d. The memory could not be read. Click on OK to terminate the program
Here are the commands I eventually ended up using to build my WinPE image:
My Toshiba laptop does not let any of the function keys operate properly. When I press one, nothing happens. I have also tried holding down the FN key, to no avail. I thought this was a Toshiba issue, but after multiple customer support "experiences" who told me that the operating system was corrupted, I think it may be a Windows 8.1 issue. This happened under Windows 8 too. Toshiba has a keyboard driver for this laptop model for Windows 7, but not 8.1. Is this a common problem with Windows 8.1 (All drivers are up to date and function key support is enabled in the BIOS)
i want to resize my partitions and yesterday i use acronis disk director boot cd and saw a learning clip but when boot from cd , the acronis shows my partitions but said "unsuppoerted" and i could not resize them(all of the options were disabled) why?
I have a paid for version of Acronis True Image Home 2010 that I have used for years with my Windows 7 box and it's been good.
I've also used Macrium Reflect Free, and today I tend to use AOMEI ddata backuper as it's free for personal and commercial use.
I have a new Dell laptop (with Windows 8), and thus far I have disabled the UEFI boot options and Secure Boot and use a classic setup. However, if I wanted to have a play with these other options to see what impact they would have on system performance, which of these drive imaging software packages would work?
I also have a desktop at work with all of these options (and that's likely where I will experiment). On that box, it's simple to drop in a test hard drive and whack away until I get it working. My laptop has an msata drive and I don't have any spares of these drives lying around.
