    Windows Smartscreen says newest display driver is harmful

    Same here. The Linux compatible dbase is even outdated, when it comes to trying to find EOL hardware. As long as everyone keeps each other in the loop on here, for what hardware does and does not work. Is going to be our best bet.

    hardware acceleration disabled

    I did not state for the OP to install DirectX. In their case, they had to use DxDiag to troubleshoot why GPU hardware Acceleration was not working. It does not matter what version of Windows they are using. If they do not want a 64 bit version of Windows 10, that is their choice. This topic...

    hardware acceleration disabled

    It has nothing to do with the version of Windows. It has to do with the OS may not be able to take advantage of GPU Hardware acceleration for some reason. Run Dxdiag in Run. Run DirectX Diagnostic Tool Also check bios settings if it is onboard GPU.

    Is anyone able to see an 8.1 shared drive from XP?

    Home Group was never meant to be for Windows XP. Home Group was Microsoft's way of trying to make network sharing more dummy proof, by using Library's to connect to, instead of just mapping a floder. With the Library's, you can include multiple folders. Mapped Network Shsred and Home Groups...

    Solved keyboard quit working. It just clicks.

    There is only one company that makes the keyboards now. When mine went out on my laptop. It took a month and about six keyboards, to get one that was not damaged or broke. They kept men in the loop the whole time, which was great.

    That is because Microsoft has not updated their Driver Signature for AMD's Crimson, which is the newer control panel. Let AMD know. They may want some log ifo from you, when they respond. Check the Forums at amd.com, to see if others are getting the same behavior.

    Locked out of my tablet running Windows 8;

    We cannot discuss this subject, because there is no way to verify if you actually own it. Because it is a Live account, you are stuck using a USB stick with Windows 8.1 for a repair.

    Solved keyboard quit working. It just clicks.

    Try connecting a USB keyboard and see if that works. In order to get it fixed. You can send it off to Dell and spend almost $300 for a repair covered by repair warranty. Or you can order the keyboard yourself for around $35 and do it yourself. Some laptops require you to pretty much guy...

    Files sharing without authorization???

    You should be able to connect to the folder still as a regular network share, regardless of Homegroup. The only thing that could stop you, would be third party Internet Security Software. Along with if you have the network connection set as Public not Private.
