comment How to have num lock enabled by default on log on screen?
The instructions quoted from Microsoft do not work in Windows 8. There is no "console menu", the file menu contains "Add/Remove Snap-in" however the dialogue doesn't appear to contain the options that the instructions require. There is a list of items to add, including some referring to the group policy. However none of them seem to do the needed task. Furthermore in some cases it says "To manage group policy you must be logged on to the computer with a domain user account".

comment Video and audio in all applications unable to play past first frame/second
I have sent it in for warranty repair. No idea yet what the problem is, but I'm sure they will either find it or replace it.

I don't know how I would use those monitoring tools to identify a problem.

Already checked for firewall/bandwidth/plug-in/extension issues - no change.

Tried installing codecs as recommended, no improvement. MPC stops responding when I try to open a video in it. VLC shows the first frame, as usual.

That wouldn't apply to VLC or WMP playing offline content.

No recent changes to graphics settings. I did update the drivers after the issue appeared and it didn't effect it. As for a restore point, it's been a while since this popped up, so I would rather not do it.

comment Toshiba Blu-ray Disk Player no longer works after upgrading to Windows 8
@arielnmz I know about codecs, I am certain that isn't my problem in this situation. Playing a Blu-Ray requires that the disk be decrypted, the needed software for this has to be licensed. Thus BD players are not free. My problem is that I have one that came with the computer that no longer works. I can buy another one (PowerDVD) and everything will be fine. But why drop $60 on something I shouldn't have to.

@arielnmz That is certainly not the issue. Blu-Rays can be played, just not with a specific player.

comment Notepad++ auto complete HTML end tags after </ (like Dreamweaver does)
Once again this is not what I am looking for, I am well aware of this option and it has been suggested before. This behavior is not at all what I am looking for, this ads the closing tag once the open tag is entered, and places the cursor between them. As I have noted to others, I don't want it to do that - I want it to auto complete the closing tag once I start to type the closing tag. This is a feature present in Dreamweaver, type </ and it will complete to the first unclosed tag.

I do not recommend "fiddling with some small magnet" anywhere near a computer.

comment Keep laptop screen turned off even if keys are pressed
Yes, which the method described above will not do. The power option keeps the device from waking windows from sleep mode - but it does not apply to the screen being asleep. Therefore devices set to not wake the computer will still wake the screen.

Devices that can not wake the computer still can wake the monitor, so this won't help.

comment Keep laptop screen turned off even if keys are pressed
Unfortunately this won't actually work. This prevents the device from waking the computer from sleep, but it will not prevent it from waking the monitor.

comment Keep laptop screen turned off even if keys are pressed
There are numerous reasons why one may want to do this, personally I sleep in the room my computer is in - so forcing it to keep the monitor off would be helpful. Unfortunately I have yet to find a way other than literally turning off the power - which is not possible for a laptop.

I don't think this really answers the question, the asker can not open the device do to lack of tools.

I had contacted the one manufacturers and they said the noise was perfectly normal. So they aren't going o replace it.

comment Blocking the high pitch sound from laptop power supplies
In this case I am talking about the power bricks that are connected by two cords (one to the computer, the other to the wall). I tried to squeeze them as you described but that produced no change.

By obnoxious, I mean headache inducing that is. Leaving the room imediatly helps the head, but it doesn't get work done.
