comment BIOS update is blocked on this device
You only trust HP for bios update. Windows never pushes bios update. Also, if you do t have a problem relating to bios you don't need to update it.

comment Laptop starts up by itself after being in Hibernate
Mine says history 0, but over night my laptop turned on while the lid was closed, did a full windows update and then just sat around waiting for me. This is also happening on my desktop machine.. I thought it was wake on lan, cmos settings... now its on my laptop.. cant figure it out

comment How can I restrict windows 7 to only use the local subnet, but block the internet
This is brilliant! LAN works and no internet at all. I put my router IP DNS in so that I can still use LAN DNS names for devices. SO simple! Thanks +1

comment diagnosing 100 percent disk usage in windows 10
Windows 10 starts to compress all files on your hard drive after upgrade! Just let your computer run idle for a few hours, depending how much data you have... it will just churn the HDD. Also, it does a ton of Indexing for searches. I had this sympton for first week... where I left the PC idle and then the HDD started doing a ton of work. It shouldnt really block your machine, just make it a bit slower.

comment Dell Optiplex 380 Hard Drive Issue
Yea that is wierd... maybe try a USB SATA convertor. Possibly something to do with the drives sector sizes in XP but on the new machine... it should work.

comment Windows 10: Computer switches to internal screen, messing up window sizes and positions
Its not a massive issue for me.. It seems win10 is faster for me and I like all the new notifications and app "type" stuff you can install. I am sure they will solve these issues soon- it seems like a widespread issue.. again GFX drivers and all sorts of weird combinations, screens, etc... If its not sorted by end Dec '15 then It would start to p**** me off that they ignoring us :)

comment Upload files ONLINE in the FTP (script in PHP)
Yea.. PHP is a good start... just write something that will connect to the FTP (using some PHP modules) (i dont know cause I am C# guy, and would be able to make a service like that in 2 hours maybe) - download what you need to where you need. You just need some kind of programming. Maybe use AuotoIT to make scripts that click buttons and does repeated stuff for you easily.

comment Windows 10: Computer switches to internal screen, messing up window sizes and positions
I am also having monitor hell with Windows 10. I have 2 screen via DisplayPorts form ATI card. One vertical and on e horizontal. The problem occurs when coming out of sleep, the screens go mental, black screen (not power saving), desktop icons rearranged each time, once this is main monitor the next time another is main monitor. From cold boots it seems to work fine... but I didnt do that in 7. It worked for more than 18 months... then Windows 10 came along and fixed it for all of us.

comment Client Side Mouse Tracking Software
Another cool thing to record in tests like this is eye movement / tracking - where the person mouse is is about 50% of the time where they are NOT looking! :) I have seen some thing like that set up with xbox camera and some Windows app, I think it was free from Windows. But cant remember now.

comment Client Side Mouse Tracking Software
Sorry, but I don't know what else to say. It seems like you need more help than just a screen tracker. You actually need to analyse each person... and that will take time, to extract valuable data, condense it and produce something useful. I get it, your boss allocated you a budget of $0 and T-1Days to complete it... and expects the perfect outcome..which will make everybody happy. Happens allot. End of the day, this type of testing takes time, allot of time, and you need to know what to analyse and how to draw conclusions. ie, even body positions and gestures are very important.

comment Client Side Mouse Tracking Software
Yup... and that requires somebody to analyse what people are doing. There is no magic way that will tell what you need to fix. You actually need to research and develop. :) If you can... - The problem is that a web script may not record everything you need to see- loosing valuable data. Its painful process, look at Windows. It took them 20 years and they still don't know what they doing :) heheh

comment Touchpad can't be use outside of Windows (10) and sometimes not at all
OH right. Yea Windows 10 seems to be coming with allot of surprises... I can only recommend to try and download the firmware or driver form the laptop site and try and use that or flash again with older one.

maybe you got a firmware update for the mouse bundled with Win10 upgrade. and now that "fixed(broke)" it for you in Linux.

comment Client Side Mouse Tracking Software
No worries. I have been looking for a mouse tracker for a website I am working on now to see how end users complete forms.. because it seems like some people do some really weird things and break validation somehow.(and I forced to use old ASP...) There are some solutions, mostly jQuery but not complete. In the end, we still don't have a mouse tracker on those forms either.

No, I mean from MAIL app itself. I set the Notifications ON and Show banner... nothing is happening.
