@ChristopherChipps Yes, the overall connectivity is affected. The speed doesn't fluctuate. When I have connectivity, I can surf at maximum speed.

comment How to extract Win 8 OEM key embedded in the BIOS?
@Synetech first, my pc has a squared reflective Windows 8 sticker on it. I also called the manufacture(ASUS) technical support line, they verified that the product key is embedded in the BIOS. However, they were trying their best to persuade me to purchase a CD version of Windows 8 from Microsoft. I'm pretty sure I've paid a Win 8 licensing fee when I purchase the pc. I don't want to pay again for the same software =(

comment How to extract Win 8 OEM key embedded in the BIOS?
@Synetech I installed with a Win 8 Pro CD and used "the method" (superuser.com/questions/512123/…). If I go to My Computer's Properties, it says I have Win 8 (not Win 8 Pro). Thanks for the activation status backup tool, but right now I can't use it because I'll need the product key from the BIOS to activate it first errrrr...

comment How to extract Win 8 OEM key embedded in the BIOS?
@Synetech yes, this one is great! But the trouble is I've already formatted the OEM win8. The freshly installed Win8 doesn't have a valid product key. That's why I have to go to the BIOS =(

comment How to extract Win 8 OEM key embedded in the BIOS?
oh, i see. I thought "the method" i indicated in the post would trick Win8 installation to think it's an OEM installation. Do you know where can i obtain an OEM Windows 8 installation copy? Thank you!

comment How to extract Win 8 OEM key embedded in the BIOS?
according to this website (ghacks.net/2012/11/23/bios-embedded-windows-8-product-keys) the product key is embedded in the BIOS.... If they're not in the BIOS then where is the key stored? Also where is a good place to obtain an OEM's Windows 8 installation (for free)? it seems these days they charge for everthings... I called ASUS support, they are in the business of persuading me to buy a fresh copy of Win 8 from Microsoft....

so you're not recommending putting back on the plastic sticker as a storage method?

if they cap the cartridge, why would they still dry up in the printer? do you think this method have a better chance of preserving the cartridges vs having cartridges installed in the printer?
