    Automatic hibernate when logged out

    As of right now I am using the BIOS to start at a certain time, and then I am just manually shutting it down. The trouble is that when it starts up, I don't log it in right away. And if I don't, after a while it seems to go into hibernate mode, and so it isn't available to log in with...

    Automatic hibernate when logged out

    I have looked int the Power Options before and that is why I am confused. Hibernate is set to never, and it is correct, it never does. Except when it is logged out, for some reason it does it then. I'm wondering if there is even an option to change that.

    Automatic hibernate when logged out

    My Windows 8 desktop automatically goes into hibernate when it is logged out. Normally this wouldn't matter much to me because I don't usually leave the computer logged out much, but when I am at school my desktop stays home, and I occasionally log into it from my laptop using TeamViewer. I...

    DPC_Watchdog_Violation, but probably not caused by SSD

    I am normally quite good with computers, but I just have trouble solving Blue Screen issues, so I talked to one of my computer friends, and he suggested that perhaps I was overloading the USB ports on my computer (since I use a USB hub). I checked it in Device Manager, and sure enough the port...

    DPC_Watchdog_Violation, but probably not caused by SSD

    Thanks for the reply! I have glanced over your suggestion, and I will be following it when I get a chance. However, I have a few things to let you know, and ask you first. First of all, yesterday this problem got so bad that I could barely get the computer started without it crashing within...

    Have you been waiting for a response?

    Hello, I posted a BSOD thread a few days ago, and I'm just checking to see if it slipped through the cracks. If you get a chance, it would be great if you guys could take a look at it. Thanks...

    DPC_Watchdog_Violation, but probably not caused by SSD

    A couple of days ago I suddenly started having my computer crash several times a day due to the DPC_Watchdog_Violation error. I did some research on the error and found that it is most commonly caused by outdated firmware for an SSD. Since I have an SSD in my computer, I figured that must be...

    Final Resolution: I backed up all my important data to an external HDD, then completely wiped the original HDD installed the SSD in its place, cleanly installed Windows 8 from a disc, then installed the original HDD in a caddy in the slot normally occupied by the optical drive. Then I...

    Solved Wifi disconnects momentarily

    For everyone's future reference, I purchased this USB antenna and it seems to have solved the problem more or less.

    Solved Installing Windows 8 to an SSD

    I am aware that I don't necessarily need to do a reset of my computer for this process to work, but I was already planning on reinstalling Windows 8 anyway, and decided it would be a good time to order the SSD I have been wanting. My plan is to put the original HDD from the laptop into the...

    Solved Installing Windows 8 to an SSD

    Oh, I'm sorry. I thought that I had mentioned that I was going to reset my PC anyway to clean things up on it. I thought as long as I was already going to be reinstalling everything, I might as well buy the new SSD I've been wanting. So to clear things up, I can just reset my PC like I was...

    Solved Installing Windows 8 to an SSD

    So from what you guys are suggesting, if I use the standard reset feature of Windows 8, then immediately migrate it onto my SSD I should be able to accomplish what I am trying for right? Or am I completely confused here?

    Solved Installing Windows 8 to an SSD

    I am planning on purchasing an SSD to put in my laptop, but it will not be replacing the standard hard drive, they will just be side-by-side. I will be completely reformatting the regular drive so that I can install Windows 8 on the SSD and use the old one as just plain storage. However, I am...

    Most of my applications no longer show on Start or search

    OK, I have a strange problem I have not been able to find mention of anywhere else. Basically, ever since I got my laptop, I have been able to just hit the start button on my keyboard and once the tile screen comes up, I just start typing the name of an application I want, and it automatically...
