Uninstall your USB host controllers and then let windows re-detect everything again. Would be worth checking for updated USB Drivers. Also are you running directly off the ports or through a USB Hub. Some devices using more power than what a hub can deliver causing this to happen.

I have successfully upgraded to Windows 10 on the 2015 Retina MacBook Pro, and have been using it for some time. There have been a few issues, but mostly due to the unfinished status of the software. The Windows 8 drivers work with Windows 10 on this machine, but YMMV.

It sounds like your local group policy isn't being applied. Are you attached to a domain that might be overriding it? For testing purposes, I'd recommend setting the keys in the registry directly, as shown in this guide: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/windows-and-office/adding-messages-to-windows-7s-logon-screen/

If nothing helps anymore, u can try this: After all changes in your configuration have been tried, do the following: Start your laptop on battery current, then when the OS is showing it's desktop, switch to the AC current. Your laptop senses that you switched between the battery and AC and will not adapt your screen anymore, not even a dark screen getting ...

Sony Vaio Tap series use the active digitizer technology from N-Trig (bought by Microsoft).

You don't need to buy exactly the pen from Sony. You can use the active stylus ...

I'd suggest installing Windows 8 first, as it's an upgrade thats free, not an install. Also, right now, your product key will not work on Windows 10 as it is still in Technical Preview. Wait for the full release before you install it - else you'll have to install the Technical Preview key.

Windows 8.1 is not Windows 8, and the license should not work. (generally) What you would need to do is install Windows 8, reuse your license (OEM key) and then upgrade to 8.1 from there. Although, there are various work-arounds that work at least sometimes.

You can do this with a key remapping program. There are outside a lot of them which could help you to do what you want. E.g. KeyTweak but the most rich feature set is available in AutoHotkey which enable to write scripts, simple or complex. (You need to write a script to remap a key). I suggest it for you, you need to give a look at the documentation of ...

"Is it possible?" Well, yes, in a sense. It's called having two separate computers. Or, to a lesser degree, virtualization. The motherboard is what ties all the pieces of a computer together. It hosts system buses, peripheral-hardware interfaces, and so on. Simplifying a little, today's hardware isn't designed in such a way that it can be shared between ...

Windows offers an all-in-one command to restore booting: bcdboot. Start from a Windows Install disc/USB and enter command prompt by pressing Shift+F10.

regarding your problem this might be helpful: Check the options in the firmware menus to enable or disable BIOS-compatibility mode.

The Enterprise version of Windows is licensed totally differently to the consumer versions.

The answer, as Taylor Gibb wrote above, is to remove your external interface from any Microsoft Bridge Adaptor, and configure bridging in VirtualBox. Bridging to wireless adaptors is special, and the Microsoft Bridge adaptor can't do it properly. (You can only transmit on a single MAC address on a wireless interface, the one you associated with). You won't ...

You should be able to connect more than one wired connection if your PC have 3 Ethernet adapters, however, most programs will only use the default gateway.

I have the same issue from time to time, too. Usually I fix this by windows restart (or use ctrl+alt to type national chars.) Today I had this issue too.

Windows 8/8.1 automatically manages and syncs "C:\Users{user}\AppData\Local\Packages\RoamingState" data that is equivalent to "WinRT App roaming data storage". Unfortunately WinRT App local storage is not syncing between PC and only this data should be placed in the backup. This data placed in "C:\Users{user}\AppData\Local\Packages\LocalState".

So after much experimenting, I have found a partial solution. It seems that if you have your mouse or keyboard (or probably any USB device) set to 'Allow this device to wake the computer', the computer will wake when a USB drive is removed. So the solution is to disable the 'Allow this device to wake the computer' for everything. Kind of annoying though, ...

You cannot. If you need administrative privileges, you need an account that has them.

If you (or anyone else has access to the admin account) you can just right-click "run as administrator" and you'll get a login ...

Unless you have the admin password there's nothing you can do. This is by design. Do you mean without resetting the password? If you've lost the admin password and need to do a recovery you'll have to create a password reset disk. Note that this only works if you're not part of a domain. ...

Is not a fast task, it takes time according your volume size, on linux you can use badblocks command to scan for bad sectors: Open a Terminal: badblocks -nsv /dev/[volume] On windows you can use CHKDSK Start>run>cmd CHKDSK [volume] /r badblocks Man Page CHKDSK deep information


2

The short answer is NO, there is no free candy. Obviously the reason why chkdsk runs so fast is because it doesn't check for bad sectors by default. You have to run it with /r switch to scan for bad sectors, at which point it will get slow as well. As for the difference between badblocks and chkdsk, the first one is a dedicated tool which discovers bad ...

I also have this in Windows 8 as you can see in the xperf Trace I captured and viewed in WPA: There is no fix for this because the memory usage comes from the WindowsUpdate client DLL when it scans for Updates (wuaueng.dll!CAgentUpdateManager::FindUpdates).

This is not a virus but rather a problem with the graphics card and its drivers and their interaction with Windows.

If it doesn't work, please try an USB port that's directly on the mainboard. The joystick draws quite some power and secondary connected 'front' ports or ports on a hub do not always work.
