This is normal. What you are looking for (a nice, packaged driver set with all the drivers for your laptop) does not really exist. This is generally something you only see with business-class laptops from the tier-1 vendors like HP, Dell, and Lenovo. Unfortunately, you're going to have to download the drivers one-by-one. The best course of action here ...

Looks like there was no easy way. In Windows 10 preview they force automatic updates on you, and since build 10049 there's no way to restore the "old" Windows Update applet in Control Panel. But I managed to do with with a set of PowerShell tools called Windows Update PowerShell Module. After you install the PowerShell tools, list all the available updates ...

Assuming you are using Windows 7: Open Task Manager and verify that CPU and RAM are not terribly maxed out for some reason. Click on the Performance Tab and click Resource Monitor. Navigate to the Disk tab and expand Storage. Post Active Time and Disk Queue. It is well known that the Samsung 850 EVO has firmware issues so I'd strongly recommend making sure ...

A small trick that I have learned when wiping and re installing Windows is when you go to select the partition that the OS is installed on it will display this message This is fine. What I learned is that it will keep that Windows.old folder on your hard drive that contains the driver for your peripheral. After clicking okay and installing and configuring ...

The text in your screenshot appears normal to me. Did you have Windows 7 on your laptop before your HDD upgrade? I suspect the blurriness you notice is from the subpixel rendering via Microsoft ClearType. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ClearType#ClearType.2C_human_vision_and_cognition http://noel.prodigitalsoftware.com/ForumPosts/Noel_ClearType.jpg Your ...

There is no such thing as a generic text printer on OSX. OSX internally treats EVERY printer as postscript at the OS level. Then converts the postscript output to whatever language the printer needs (ZPLII in your case). So the Remote Desktop APP sees a "postscript" printer on OSX and communicates that to your Windows server. (Windows usually sees it as a ...

Well, I don't own those cards and my distro is different, but I have a few suggestions: Did you try adding options snd_hda_intel index=1? It seems you are using the index=0 card, so with the index=1 option you should be enabling the motherboard audio (and probably have to switch the connectors at the back). Another way would be editing the alsa.conf file. ...

nVidia drivers are unified. If you download the driver package for both cards, it is likely that they will be the exact same file. If that's the case, the one driver should work with both cards. If the files are different, then install the driver with the oldest version number first. That way, the newer version of the driver for the other card will ...

Found same problem on a 32GB USB 3.0 Drive (Win 8.1 Laptop with 4x USB 3.0 ports). Read elsewhere that connecting too slowly will produce this effect (reads as High-Speed 0x02 connection instead of SuperSpeed 0x03). I removed the drive (using eject pop-up window), waited a few seconds and reconnected quickly. The connection now reads correctly as ...

Drivers are not updated a lot, and for the major part of drivers, they are updated through windows update as optional updates, if you choose to search for updates not just for windows, but other applications too. That said, I still never update drivers, because there's a golden rule that applies here: If its not broken, don't fix it. With the exception of ...

It's not an issue, it is normal. In that 10-15 seconds the system is already done filling the memory but it has to restart some scheduling mechanisms (O.S. is up&running but not yet started to schedule high level user apps) and switch to the logon screen. 10 secs is very normal.

When you install any new (not included in Windows) driver in Windows a copy of this driver is copied inside a dedicated folder in Windows. Your problem is that the newest version of the driver get installed from this location. That's also happen automatically every time you reboot your computer because I believe the version you try to install manifest it ...

What is present at first boot is the factory default settings. These may not be optimal, but are the settings that are most likely to work for "everyone" during first boot, so that they can later go in and tweak the BIOS settings as they please. These settings are usually stored in CMOS memory, and kept there by the small battery that you can see on the ...
