Since Windows 8, the Desktop Window Manger (DWM) is always on and runs Windows in 32Bit color depth all the time. This can cause such strange issues. If applying XP compatibility mode (which activates shim that let games think they run at 16Bit color depth, while Windows still uses 32Bit) doesn't work, setup a Virtual Machine and use older Windows version ...

Power off the phone. Remove the SD card and put it in a card reader and connect it to a PC. Run cmd to open a command window. Type chkdsk /f drive: (for example, chkdsk /f E:). You will probably see that corruption was found. Add files from your computer. Repeat chkdsk /f drive:. Safely eject the card and plug it back into your phone.

Try running the program in compatibility mode, right-clicking (one of the sections; I use Linux now) and selecting 16-bit compatibility mode, or similar. Also select run using Windows XP, or any other OS than Win 8.

Think about motherboards for desktop computers: they can work with multiple kinds of processors, but not all of them. Processor has to use the same socket type and needs support in motherboard's BIOS. Different sockets are required because different CPUs have different sets of pins. These motherboards are designed to work with different CPUs. These CPUs are ...

I've tried diskperf and Windows 7 says "counters on this system are automatically enabled on demand" so that didn't help.

For the first time ever, I now have disk ...

When entering the user name on the remote machine, prefix it with the target machine's name and a backslash.

I have this same issue on a UX501VW Zenbook Pro. I think there is some static electricity arcing between the screen and the keyboard when the lid is closed all the way. When I place a small 1/4" think stack of PostIts keeping the lid just slightly open I don't get any screen activation as if there's a screen touch/press. I still haven't figured out how to ...

I suspect that your installer is not booting with EFI. In order to install Windows onto GPT disks, you have to boot the installer using EFI. EFI booting (and the related "CSM" boot options) are complex enough to write a book about, but the massively abbreviated version relevant to this discussion is that a Windows installer disc (or USB disk, etc.) can be ...

One possible solution for you is TouchMe Gesture Studio. I'm afraid it's not a free solution, although I believe it gives a trial period to make sure it's compatible with your machine. It gives you a lot more options for touch screen actions you can perform, including middle mouse click. Otherwise, I'm not sure there are a lot of options without building ...

Sadly it can't be fully done yet on Windows, but here are the steps to do it: Boot into Linux Execute fdisk -lu /dev/sdc2 (where sdc2 is the partition you want to access) to find out the offset to the partition you want to access, and write it down On Windows open diskmgmt.msc from the Run menu Assign a letter to the partition that contains the partition ...

I had a similar problem when I tried to dual boot Windows 8.1 and Fedora.

It's been a while since I was on Win8 so bear with me, but the Win10 taskmgr is pretty much the same so I am pretty confident this is the answer you are after. The column you are looking for is no longer on the "Processes" tab of the Task Manager window like you are used to. You now have to go to the Details tab, right click in the column headers, and ...

The combination (Office and Acrobat XI) should indeed work. What you could do as a first step is to Repair Acrobat (that should be in the Help menu of Acrobat). Also, using the PDFMaker macro to create the PDFs is considered "Best Practice", because it gets most of the Word document's feature (links, cross refereces etc.) through to the PDF; something a ...

Working from Ramhound's answer I have discovered the culprit. It is something called the Intel(R) Management Engine, which is just a rebranding of its old Active Management Technology. The difference is that AMT was previously an optional component on Intel-based systems, but Intel is trying to make IME mandatory. Currently, it appears you may be able to ...

I had a similar problem when I upgraded from Win7 to Win10, my computer would no longer go to sleep. The solution for me was to go into Settings-->System-->Power & Sleep-->additional power settings-->change plan settings-->change advanced power settings. Find "sleep" and set "Allow hybrid sleep" to DISABLED. This fixed my problem.
