comment Windows 8 black screen with mouse pointer after login
@Karan I prefer doing backups on external. System restore is not worth the hassle. I personally hate losing HDD space to random stuff...

comment Windows 8 black screen with mouse pointer after login
i would say it's because Restore Points start hogging more and more space than they actually need. I remember them using 20 GB when I disabled them some time last year. Anyway, as for your issue, if this is a Desktop try removing the Gfx card and putting it back. If that doesn't work... Refresh and reset is your best bet. Oh, also take a look at the BIOS.. could be some BIOS setting here and there

mouse properties? .. Check there. Or check if you have some proprietary drivers like the synaptic touch drivers for instance.

^what he said. The thing is, just copy-pasting the .iso file wont't make your tablet recognize it. You might have to make it a bootable flash drive.

comment Intel integrated graphics 4000 with AMD Radeon HD 6850
Have a look at this link. This is how the procedure is done on Lenovo. But, my assumption is that even on different BIOS they wont change the general idea too drastically. forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/…

Set the AMD one as your discrete one in the BIOS as recommended by "week".

comment How do I edit this interactive PowerPoint workflow?
What do you mean? U just normally edit it. I was able to change the text,add animations and change fonts and backgrounds without any issue. As far as editing the workflow goes, be sure to edit the conditions only and not the structure.

comment Is there anyway to configure Google account for Windows 8 Sync?
I dont see how you cant just simply put a shortcut from IE of all the appropriate pages on your metro and get this working. Place Gmail and Gdrive and upload your stuff from your chrome OS to Gdrive and access like this on Windows 8...

Another thing to point is that this request for dev license is free provided you have visual studio installed.

comment What is the difference between “could not find host” and “timed out” when pinging fails?

comment What is the difference between “could not find host” and “timed out” when pinging fails?
Shinrai, I'm going to stick with what you think since I was thinking the same. But, the fact that none of the 10 servers have DNS entires confused me. How can the timed out servers even figure out where to send the packets if there is no dns entry?

comment What is the difference between “could not find host” and “timed out” when pinging fails?
But, none of my servers had DNS entries. As in, all 10 did not have them and only 8 of them said "could not find host: while the other two successfully converted the hostname into an IP but timed out.

comment Weird formatting in Word 2010
The best solution I can think of without testing it myself is going to Styles >Clear All and then you can add the formatting and styles back in as per need. But, you said you don't want to redo the formatting. I have a VM up and running...is ther a way I can test it myself? I can for sure get a solution if I get to see your issue on my computer. That way I can play around with it.
