As long as the path to pip.exe is in your PATH, you can open the Windows command line and use pip there. For example, if you're running Python 2.7, pip.exe should be in C:\Python27\Scripts. For Python 3.4, it'll be in C:\Python34\Scripts. If you installed the python.org version of Python properly, this should already be in your PATH. To open the Windows ...

I had the same problem on Windows 7. Windows cuts off connections that are deemed inactive, such as connections with no open file handles. The Linux VM locks up because the CIFS driver doesn't like being disconnected and can't recover. It affects processes because they are in an interrupted state waiting for the CIFS filesystem driver to come back, which ...

Your desktop peripheral is different from your laptop peripheral.

After trial and error, I have discovered the issue: Acer monitors have a feature called "Detect Video", which apparently will attempt to determine video playback and then proceed to fade out the rest of the screen into grayscale. Unfortunately, this feature also affects video games. So to fix I went into monitor setup menu and disabled this feature - set ...

The bios settings may be different to motherboard to motherboard. You can install the OS when the new SSD is connected to your Laptop and try booting it up. The problem might be because of the different motherboard on the different systems.

Or boot to Windows 8 and use a BCD editor to overwrite grub. You can also use windows start-up DVD to rewrite the BCD. I'm doing about the same thing, but I'm trying to get the metro windows boot manager... still can't get it off of the legacy text-style loader.

I assume you're referring to non-metro applications. Some program installers only create the application's shortcuts in the account that was used to install the program. Typically all one needs to do to make the program accessible to all users on the computer is copy these shortcuts to a location that all users can access, such as the Public Desktop or ...

Your local Picture library is at: c:\Users\<yourusername>\Pictures Make sure that this isn't assigned to sync to OneDrive and make sure that you are actually copying to that location (try manually entering the full path in a Windows Explorer location bar).

I found out how to solve my problem. The file was stored in C:\Users\Dussault\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\WordPad as Wor83DB.tmp. I was able to read it by opening it in Wordpad. I found it by reading that the files are saved as .tmp, so I did a search for "extension:tmp" and used Wordpad to open each file from the relevant timerange. Most of them were ...

I believe Windows 8 allows you to automatically upload and sync your photos with OneDrive. I don't know for certain, but it probably merges your local Pictures folder with the OneDrive folder if that's enabled. Go into Settings, find the OneDrive settings and disable syncing for pictures. Try copying them after syncing is disabled.

Detecting RAM usage in Windows in detail is not possible with Taskmgr. RAMMap displays more details. High Driver Locked usage is often caused by Virtual Machine tools like hyper-v. So stop/remove Hyper-V.

First, the HP site says "*Integrated audio is not available if a sound card is installed." So yes, you could install another card, but you can only use one or the other. This is actually a pretty common problem with Realtek audio with automatic jack sensing. However, check the basics first: 1) If the computer has a front-panel audio output jack, connect ...

By looking at the screenshot - correct me if I'm mistaken: /dev/sda is marked as a SYSTEM, but does not have a "boot" flag set. /dev/sda2/ has a boot flag set but doesn't seem to be manjaro booter. In other words, you tried to utilise a hard drive while breaking up the partitioning. It seems Windows tries to boots from /dev/sda but it cannot find its ...

There isn't anything that general.

Rather than turning it off, I would choose static size and made sure that pagefile.sys isn't fragmented. Defraggler can defrag chosen files. Read those 2 topics: If my pagefile is disabled on Windows, should I still be seeing Hard Faults? Should I disable swap file if I have lots of RAM or should I move it to a virtual RAM drive?


0

I don't think you can "pause" the pagefile, maybe turn it off completely... But you could close as many programs as possible before running your game, that way the pagefile should be quieter while your playing... unless it's your game that's running out of real ram & getting swapped to the pagefile.

Windows 8 doesn't exactly agree with most ad-hoc or cable to cable connections unless you have a crossover cable. I would recommend purchasing a crossover cable and going from there.

I've done this between windows connected system, and the fundamentals are the same. Set up static ip addresses on a different range (I'd pick a different 'class' of RFC1918 ranges to be safe) on both systems (depending on your WM and OS, there might be a GUI for this), and do not set a default gateway. Not setting a default gateway essentially tells your ...

Remove the hard drive before booting into the SSD for the first time The problem you experienced is caused by the Windows installation on the SSD continuing to reference the old hard drive. As a result, Windows incorrectly assigns a drive letter that is not C: to the SSD. Because the system assumes that key system files are in C:, several core components ...

Even if you install windows on a secondary drive using another computer with the exact same or incredibly similar hardware, the problem of the password protected BIOS is still going to keep you from booting into Windows on the original machine. Sometimes the only way to remove a BIOS password is to reflash the BIOS. But even then the password may still be ...

This is probably related if the HDD goes idle for sometime. Looks like the sleep can be suspended by doing some registry modification using the Hardware ID of the USB HDD.

Dependent on the external drive manufacturer, you may be able to find some sort of software they supply on which there is a control for spin down. I believe my Seagate drives have a program and when I go into the program, there is a setting for how long to wait until the drives go to power savings mode.

The only "work around" I have found for this is to go to "device manager" and uninstall "Intel(R) HD Graphics" driver under Display adapters. This causes the screen to go black, but pushing (not holding) the power button lets the system restart and then the touchscreen works. I had to do this every time but here lately it every once in awhile works without ...

thanks, but i found something, i could post it here or something but basically i would hit the button in the utils and itd run a cmd that asks for a admin password, and if you give it it would save the password untill you shutdown the pc, and it would start the program and if you hit the button while the pass was saved it would just run the game with admin

To get into BIOS to change the boot order you'll need to press some keys when the computer starts... it's different by manufacturer but often DEL or F10, or F2, could be F1, F2, F3, ... up to F12. There should be a brief message saying what to press (if you haven't set a fast boot or timeout or splash screen). Changing the boot order in BIOS is permanent ...

depend on your motherboard model. usually the HD is the primary boot, but you can change the primary boot to DVD, some motherboard models allow boot from second boot source if the primary one is failed. that's mean if you find in your BIOS that the DVD is primary or secondary boot, most probably your DVD does not burned to be bootable.

The only update available to go from Windows 8.0 to Windows 8.1 is to use the Microsoft Store.

It sounds like you have a PUA (potentially unwanted application) installed. Usually they are installed alongside other applications; for example, Java offers to install the 'Ask' toolbar.

I have found a website that has a script you can download and run on your machine, it gives you a popup for the location and name of the image running on your background.
