It's not in the OS, you should be able to set the allocated amount to the igpu, it's usually set on auto by default. Set it in the bios

I get a new laptop, I move my harddrive, windows finds all the new drivers etc, and all is wel This only works if windows is able to boot. If your new computer has a different chipset (with incompatible SATA controller) then this will fail. Thus, do three things: Compare firmware (e.g. BIOS) settings on both laptops. Are both set the AHCI? (if ...

It does not. Your desktop is the environment you work in (the main explorer window without borders, with the trashcan, with the start button, the [my computer] icon, the taskbar, etc etc). This 'desktop' is used on both laptop computers, desktop computers, towers and 19" rack computers.

Click "OK". Restart your PC. If your PC starts OK in Safe Mode ...

There are ways to edit the boot manager/loader manually after the install. One is the official microsoft tool bcedit which is fully capable of that but not the most userfirendly program. There is also the 3rd party software easybcd which has a nice gui for the editing of the boot loader. With both you can edit your boot loader so that it always directly ...

I had a similar problem (same error code 0xc0000225) on my computer while I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 The problem came from an empty EFI partition still remaining on one of my drives. On the boot, the computer finds 2 EFI partitions : one from my main OS, and another one corresponding to an old OS I uninstalled months ago (I moved from my first ...

How does windows recognize my machine as desktop/laptop at first use? It does not. The message is indicating that the user profile has never logged into the system before, and the Desktop ( more specifically the actual folder for that specific user ) for the profile has to be created. Of course Windows can tell the difference between a desktop and a ...

When you turn on your computer your bios looks for windows and scans all of your drives to see if there is any new hardware and whether or not it has windows on it. The bios probably saw that there was a new drive and that it too had windows the bios then gave you an error because it doesn't know what to choose. I recommend that you get a sata dock to put ...

Take it to an expert - especially if there is any data on there that you value. Seriously, in order to make a stab at what is going on we would need to know a lot more about your system, configuration and what might have caused it. Its entirely possible that you "just" need to install a new boot loader (but in that case you really need to find out why), ...

Sure, your boot menu can point at drives on any hard drive. On my old dual drive, dual boot install, with windows installed first then linux, grub autodetected the windows install on another drive and had that as a loading option. Likewise you could configure windows to do the same and chainload a bootloader on another drive with BCD. In short, as long as ...

There are 3 options A. This was already asked here Can I fix error 0xc0000225 without reinstalling Windows? B. If that fails it might sound weird to solve a WINDOWS issue using LINUX but i have done this many times get my/your files out. If you know your way around Linux you could just boot into the live CD, login, mount /dev/sda1 partition, plug your ...

Check the graphics card driver. Open the terminal and type: ubuntu-drivers devices The output of ubuntu-drivers devices will show a list of graphics card drivers from the Ubuntu repositories that are compatible with your laptop. I would expect that fglrx would be the right proprietary graphics card driver to install for a Radeon APU A4-6000 with R2 ...

Change the mobo. No point in replacing the connector at this point since the PCB is multilayered in modern mobos meaning different pins can go to different layers.

I figured out the issue. It was a combination of not enough power and one of the ram chips was bad/not compatible. Since there is no model or any other information available, it made fixing a little harder than it would have normally been. I purchased a new power supply, which I think may have helped. In any case it now has more power available and makes ...

I've seen all kinds of strange things happen when the CMOS battery gets old. It's usually a CR2032 watch battery. Sometimes a weak battery will perform worse than if you remove the battery altogether. As a temporary measure, removing the battery and the power and booting without a battery sometimes clears things up. If that helps, then a fresh battery ...
