I am looking at a couple of (Windows 10) machines here and RamMap shows very little transition memory on both machines. On your Windows 7 machine, run Admin Tools, Resource Monitor. Make sure the Memory Line is open. Let resource monitor run for 15 minutes or so and then see what is taking the memory. Try running SFC /SCANNOW from an admin command prompt and ...

Windows 7 usually installed using MBR. Windows 10 generally uses UEFI so the first thing you need to determine is whether you are using an MBR or UEFI boot method for your windows install. Whichever you are using for windows you must also use with Mint. Problems you will encounter if you mix them are explained at the site below. https://help.ubuntu.com/...

Sony haven't released anything for that machine since 2014. It's abandonware, I'm afraid, never supported for Windows 10 & no longer supported for Windows 7 either. See DriverScape - https://www.driverscape.com/manufacturers/sony/laptops-desktops/vpceh2kfx/44381 Sony's own page for it just seems broken, no matter what browser you try to access it from - ...

I fully understand your pain, especially with everyone that is replying with "you shouldn't being do that" All you want is want an answer, not a moral lecture.

Windows has no way to enable ReadyBoost for second hard drives when the OS drive already is a low-latency SSD. But a few alternative things: SysMain (nee SuperFetch) Windows SysMain service (formerly known as SuperFetch) will proactively load files from your hard disk that it knows you will use, and cache them in unused RAM. For example, on my desktop with ...

If you get an 'access denied' error when attempting to shut down, log off or reboot a Windows system from Device ManageR, first manually test whether Device ManageR's host system can shut down the target computer; then, if it can, run Device Manager as an administrator with the host system's username and password.

Check the if folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Oracle\Java\javapath" exist if so: remove entry "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Oracle\Java\javapath" from your PATH env variable. It prevents using your correct JDK instance.

You were pressing F2 after your manufacturing PC's logo went, so you were taken to the Windows Boot Manager or the GRUB. Try pressing F2 a couple of times just when you start the PC or the manufacturer's logo comes.

When the OS talks to the SATA controller, it simply asks the controller to read/write a specific Logical Block Address (LBA). LBA's start at 0 and go up to the billions or trillions depending on the size of the drive. There's no concept of "where" the data is going. That concept was valid when floppies were around (you had to tell the floppy ...

Short version of my answer: NO! The effect you wish to obtain cannot be configured in NTFS. There is just one point of access to the location of files. It is the defragmentation API: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/fileio/defragmenting-files To reach your goal you would have to patch or reprogram the file system driver. But even is this was ...

Unplug the CD-ROM drive. Delete the drivers. Optionally test what happens if you re-connect it & let Windows reinstall the drivers rather than some dodgy 3rd party 'driver manager' - most of which are terrible. As you said the CD drive failed long ago, I doubt this step will gain you anything - unless it was the dodgy driver manager that 'broke' it in ...

The default open/save folder is a per program setting. The open/save dialog can also 'remember' the last chosen folder and will return there. Taking your example of virustotal.com, it presented my Downloads folder. I then browsed to My Documents and opened a file from there, uploading it. I closed my browser, opened it again and returned to virustotal. ...

There were two issues preventing the V3500 shares from being browsed by another computer on the network.

Shared memory just means that Windows isn't restricting other programs from using those memory cells for other applications. There's security checks for where programs can utilise memory cells and shareable means that you can use those alongside other applications that are currently using them also. Most of the time this is because of DLL files or other ...

Should there be something displayed between the double colons? No. :: is simply IPv6 shorthand for an unspecified address (all zeroes) and is the equivalent of 0.0.0.0 in IPv4. It does this indefinitely. This means the web server is running. http.server keeps the command prompt open so it can output basic messages regarding server operation to the console....

I just recently did something about this to move 100gb of data. First of all, I did not try to move the whole appdata. Instead, I search in appdata to find where It consumes the most space. Turns out, the adobe folder was getting about 70 gb. So I did a joint folder with a mklink. First, I created the folder D:\mklinks\appdata\adobe. The name here is purely ...

After Robocopy empties the folder, it deletes it. How do I stop it from doing this? If you are using the /move option to copy files and directories, you can try using the /s and /mov options instead. This should move files (/mov), including in subdirectories (/s), without removing any directories in the source path (including the root directory itself) e.g.:...

This answer is specific to Rainmeter. I have not tested it, but this plugin can measure battery percentage. You could create a skin that uses if to measure when battery drops below a certain percent, and then opens an exe, which would be an Autohotkey program to close Rainmeter. I am aware this question is old, but I thought I will add my two cents for ...

I've never tried to boot using RAM as storage space, but in theory it's possible. However, since RAM is volatile memory, unless you saved data to a persistent storage device (HDD, SSD, USB, CD, DVD, BD, Floppy disk, etc.), you would lose all the data on reboot. However, I suppose it's not physically impossible. It isn't possible for the BIOS/UEFI, as far as ...

If the machines came with win 10 pro preinstalled and they are from a big manufacturer like Dell/HP/Lenovo its very likely they have their Windows key embedded in UEFI and are as such already licensed.

How I can make my DVD Windows 10 DVD into a blank DVD so I can burn the Windows 10 21H1 ISO to my DVD?
