    Solved How can I cleanup my modern apps to only preinstalled?

    When I first got Windows 8, I was like a kid in a candy store downloading way too many modern apps. Many of these early modern apps are no longer working. Another side effect is that newly installed modern apps no longer have tiles created on the modern desktop as if these is no more space...

    Trouble activating a third monitor?

    My motherboard has no on board video. I believe Win 8.1 Pro is limited to 6 monitors, but I did not verify that article. I know I have had 4 monitors on my XP Pro laptop, which I still need to download my diabetes glucose log. That Dell c840 laptop supported the lid's monitor, and an...

    Trouble activating a third monitor?

    The two older monitors are both 1920x1080. The third monitor is 1680x1050. There is 1gb of dedicated memory on the adapter. Mailing out the memory sounds reasonable because I can get any 2 of the 3 monitors activated. My motherboard manual states that using ATI CrossfireX to connect the two...

    Trouble activating a third monitor?

    The adapter card (pcie v2.0) has three connectors (DVA, HDMI, VGA-15 pin). All three monitors are shown in the adjust resolution applet, but the VGA-newly-attached-monitor is disabled. Using either the adjust resolution applet or the Radeon Catalyst utility, activating any 3rd monitor results...

    Trouble activating a third monitor?

    What is the root problem I'm having and a workable solution for connecting a 3rd monitor to a Win 8.1 Pro x64 desktop? My primary desktop has a ATI Radeon HD 46000 Series display adapter with 1 gb or onboard dedicated video memory. I have a HP w2338h LCD monitor (1920x1080) as my primary...

    Trouble with three monitors

    It seems rather arbitrary for you to demand I post to a new thread when this thread really was never answered. Forgive me for my bluntness, but with all of your claimed certifications, might it have been just as easy to provide a solution than demand an arbitrary hoop to jump through. Can you...

    Trouble with three monitors

    My primary desktop has a ATI Radeon HD 46000 Series display adapter with 1 gb or onboard dedicated video memory. I have a HP w2338h LCD monitor (1920x1080) as my primary on HDMI. I have a Dell s2404W (Digital, 1920x1080) across from me for watch videos on DVI. It's defined as extended...

    Solved Installing Hyper-V disables most video applications

    My desktop has multiple NICs. One is allocated to the Win 8.1 Pro host, and the other is allocated to hyper-V. No NICs are shared. When I uninstall Hyper-V (to perhaps watch a DVD), I disable the NIC allocated to hyper-V, to avoid conflicts caused by having multiple NICs which are not shared...

    Solved Installing Hyper-V disables most video applications

    Attached is a System Information report. I have no idea how to determine the offensive device/driver since it works so well without Hyper-V installed. How would I determine. I'm ignorant about the assertion that installing Hyper-V changes to host OS to a virtual machine. How is the host's VM...

    Solved Installing Hyper-V disables most video applications

    When I install Windows 8 Pro x64 Hyper-V, most video applications stop working, even when the Hyper-V services are disabled. The affected applications include DVD players, store-based Netflix and Hulu, among others. For some reason I can still watch Netflix and Hulu if I use the desktop IE. I...

    Can Bitlocker be used safely on Backup Disks?

    I have two machines with TPM 1.2 chips. These machines are at home, so the benefits of bitlocker for the system drive seems minimal under the assumption that anyone with physical access can gain full access of my machines. I'm more concerned with the backup disks which I rotate off-site. I...

    Video card deemed incompatible iff Hyper-V is installed

    My video adapter (ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series) works fine with all desktop and modern apps, unless Hyper-V is installed. Even if the Hyper-V service is stopped, if it is installed many apps declare my video adapter is incompatible. Examples are the Netflix and Hulu. Once I install Hyper-V, those...

    Solved All Downloaded Apps have an "X" on the tile need repair

    Problem Solved! I found a link to "Sync App Licenses". Clinking on that solved the problem. I have way too many apps and need to uninstall the ones I tried but don't use. Because of the number of apps it took a while to sync all of my took licenses...

    Solved All Downloaded Apps have an "X" on the tile need repair

    Thank you for the reply, however I make it a habit of searching the forum prior to posting, so I already read those postings and did not get the desired results. However if it takes days to see results then I'm just impatient. The events that led up to this situation is that I replaced my...
