comment Windows 8.1 Basic To Domain
If you want to join the domain then, as noted, that is not possible. If you want to access domain resources only, that can be done easily. What exactly do you want to accomplish?

comment WLAN: Domestic Router only handling up to 15 clients
Devices often come with an older firmware and then upgrades provide added features/bug fixes, etc Check the vendor site tp-link.com/lk/products/details/?model=TL-WR841ND#down for updates

Do you have the latest firmware on the router?

comment WLAN: Domestic Router only handling up to 15 clients
Is it possible that DHCP is configured to only provide IP addresses for 15 clients? Do the device logs show anything that could help? AS a side note, 35 clients sharing that WiFi connection could be challenging depending on what the client devices are being used for.

Most HDD manufacturers have a utility that fully tests the HDD. All I have found are free to download and use. Get the proper utility and test away!

comment My laptop CD-DVD disc drive(reader) not displayed in “My Computer” and does not open when try to open
Does the device appear in device manager? If not ejecting that would point to a hardware issue. Have you attempted to remove the drive to check for physical issues?

comment How do I open visio diagrams without a copy of visio loaded locally?
Noted- I have edited the earlier answer to include the info. The main page linked in the October 2103 reply does make it clear that there are fees as it reports it is "affordable" and Pricing is in the top banner

comment Can I login into domain under regular Windows 8 (not Pro)?
This is sort of correct. You really did not fully log in to the domain. You used a service(s) provided by a server on the domain using credentials that exist on the domain. You have an account on the domain so this works.

Have you done any research on this? You need Pro or Enterprise to join the Domain. windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/compare

comment Touchpad not detected in Aspire VN7-591G
Is this an Intel chipset mainboard? If so, did you run the Intel chipset update/driver install? If you identify an Intel chipset, the package can be found at the Intel site if not offered by Acer. Sometimes a key board component is missing a driver and then the attached device fails. Sorry I cannot read the screen shot for device manager to guide you further
