You could try using a Static IP Address, by configuring the router to issue a specific IP Address to the PC in question, then configuring the PC to use the static IP Address issued by the router. Not sure if it will work, but by creating direct static communication between the devices might eliminate the confusion during reboots.

What is the point of your installation of win10TP? If it's just for researching of the new wins maybe you should consider using a vmware player or hyper-v virtual machines..? If there is any better reason your best bet is to disconnect/disable(in BIOS) all the other drives while installing the win10 on external drive. That way nothing will be touched by ...

I believe that mapping a drive letter to a share will (most times*) create a connection and hence use one of your concurrent connections. *If the user has gone in to mapped drive during that logged in session or a file has been read by a program. In other words if you map a drive, then reboot and do not open the drive whatsoever it should sit without ...

For analysis of the automatically started Programs I would use AutoRuns To get rid of the domain user you can just unjoin the computer form the domain. If the domain user you have doesn't have enough rights log in with the other one. Go to C:\Windows\System32 and locate cmd.exe. Right click it while holding shift choose: "Run as different user" Enter .\ ...

This question is a year old but I had the same problem and solved it a different way and just wanted to share the solution that worked for me: 1. Go to Devices & Printers 2. Right Click the icon for the headphones 3. Select "Services" (I didn't have Control like the first answer suggests) 4. An interface pops up and shows a list of operations 5. Under ...

Some software is just like this. Fortunately, you indicated that you're using Windows 7, and Windows 7 has a way to handle such software. Windows 7 has a startup method called "Automatic (Delayed Start)". That may be more appropriate for a service that works fine in many cases, but doesn't work fine right when the system starts if "Automatic" is used as ...

It is possible that service receives start command but fails to complete its startup procedure. It is also possible that it starts as intended but stops immediately afterwards.

You can't make Windows 7's defragmenter do exactly what you're asking for, so you'd have to look at 3rd party tools. However, why are you so worried about a bit of fragmentation? Fragmentation is normal and a small amount of it will cause you absolutely no appreciable loss in performance.

For rotating hard drives you might get an wee (~1%) increase in performance on larger files if you're lucky which is negligible. For SSD hard drives you'll see no difference at all. The reason why there's hardly any performance difference is because the underlying hardware (CPU, SATA controller, HDD controller) in modern PCs is so performant that read speed ...

Thanks for thinking along, but I managed to find the problem, or at least the solution. The NAS is Linux based and does not support the higher security Windows demands, as the computers are part of a Windows domain. I had to change following registry key and reboot in order to get the clients up and running. ...

You're not providing a screenshot, so I can't be sure this is what happens, so this is my best shot given the little information you provided: Rightclick your word icon, and choose un-pin from the menu. Then through the start menu, launch word. Now rightclick the word icon again, and choose pin to taskbar. Somehow the link inside it doesn't work, but the ...

As long as the Dell drivers are installed, there is a hotkey for the touchpad/point that will toggle the available settings. On Latitude E7440, the hotkey is accessed by Fn + F5, as shown here: This will toggle the TouchPoint Off, Trackpad Off, both Off, and both On, with an on-screen graphic indicating the setting.

Your domain is entirely broken (status: SERVFAIL), neither DNS server you specify in your zone file is reachable, and part of the problem is both NS records you've put in are resolving to the same IP address. The only reason the dreampsychics.com name is working at all is you have it registered to an entirely different set of name servers at your ...

The 'correct' way to do it is to build a customised version of I8042PRT.SYS that sends the required initialisation bytes. The first page you linked to includes a patch to the Windows 2000 version of I8042PRT; this topic on Geekhack includes pre-built drivers and instructions. For a quicker and nastier solution, use something like NTPORT to allow direct port ...

I've found no other working solution for re-indexing just one specific folder than that: close all open programs, which may access the folder in question copy your folder. For example if your folder is named to_be_indexed, copy it to a new folder named to_be_indexed - Copy. In Windows Exlplorer you may simply use ctrl-c ctrl-v shortcuts, having selected ...

Is your software one of the "printer support" bloatware packages that are installed automatically for many printers if you use the default installation from the CD? HP in particular is a massive offender here. In that case, uninstall the printer, and then install the driver only.

I was able to solve my problem by using Windows troubleshooting for the networks. Unfortunately I can't give more detailed information since it didn't tell me what it did exactly and the settings still look the same. Edit: After doing this I could no longer ping the devices on the other, formerly working network. I have now (hopefully) found a better ...

If it reaches the windows logo and then restarts its indeed finding your HD and trying to boot from it. Most likely the problem is that you moved the OS from one motherboard to another and now its chipset drivers and settings no longer match the hardware, causing it to crash and reboot on every boot attempt. It is possible to move a Windows installation ...

The optiplex 990 isn't a good machine for gaming as it only has a 200-300w power supply. If you have an SFF 990 (small form factor) then you can't upgrade easily or cheaply. If you have the normal sized 990 then any 700w PSU will fit. 700w is the minimum wattage you should aim for.

For me the solution was a bit diferent, it won't recognize the system environment variable JAVA_HOME, i had to set JAVA_HOME as User environment variable, so that i can use %JAVA_HOME% in system environment variable setting up.

I found the reason, almost by accident, because it was hard to trace: An install of a new version of BOINC (in my case the new version 7.4.36) causes the issue. After a reboot it is gone. I have now reported this in the BOINC forum.

You haven't specified HOW the computer crashes and you have not specied any errors from logs either. Based on the limited information I would suggest updating your GFX driver as an easy first test. If that doesn't work you may want to check that the PSU can supply the GFX card with stable voltages at high load. Once the PSU starts going bad one of the first ...

The easiest way to retrieve a site's icon programmatically is to use the http://grabicon.com service, and I'm not just saying that because I created it :) It's a drop-in replacement for google's S2 service - it's free, lets you specify the icon size you want, and generates unique default icons for sites that don't have one.

Have you tried right-clicking on 'Libraries' and selecting 'Restore default' (I think the option is under Windows) yet? This may resolve the library name even if it does not return the content. This could be moved manually after the fact, if necessary, I'm sure.

Low-level reformatting should be sufficient to remove the contents of HDD, unless there is information on it of a sensitive nature and you're selling the drive.

Expect to wait some time for complete random overwrite of a HDD to ...

TestDisk : Open Source solution. Note that this, and all other solutions, are useless if this is not handled right. Do not write to the section of the disk you want to recover from.

Two solutions mentioned here: First, I'll propose the idea which may give you some instant relief.

NirSoft's DevManView should be able to accomplish the process I'm ...

From your description it sounds like it's a software/driver issue, as the display is receiving input up until the point where the driver is loaded by Windows. I would suggest the following: Try Win + P and set it to extend desktop to see if that has any effect. Could be Windows is simply not sending any output to HDMI. Try reverting to the default driver ...

Do not write anything else on D: until you recover it!!! Short answer ;) yes no yes In case of Windows your OS is installed on C: . Even if you have two windows on same machine each one will be one C: and see other one on D: or some other drive. So your OS is fine, but you can install some programs on other partitions for example D: There are planty ...

First things first, you wont ever realistically be able to get the files perfectly side by side and may i ask why would you want to?

I had the same problem on W2003 and noticed that when running 'ssh-host-config' and choosing "separate privileges" it creates the "cyg_server" local user, but it does not then find it and as a result installs the sshd service as the "SYSTEM" user!!!It does not find it because it does not update /etc/passwd ;).
