    Hard-drive at 100% with no activity

    Thanks for the response! I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner - I was dealing with an issue that is actually linked to this one: http://www.eightforums.com/drivers-hardware/36477-ssd-hangs-boot-sometimes-crashes.html It seems that the hanging is being caused by this particular drive. When I...

    SSD hangs at boot; sometimes crashes

    I bought a pretty cheap Kingston 30GB SSD (part number SNV125-S2) off eBay; the seller guaranteed that it wouldn't be DOA, which it wasn't. I was able to install Windows 8 fine, but I'm currently running into a pretty annoying issue with hang-ups during the boot sequence. It's a little odd...

    Hard-drive at 100% with no activity

    Hello, I recently discovered that one of my drives has been at 100% activity with no data being read or written. This particular drive is used for virtual instruments and samples for music. I've never had issues before, but I found it odd that loading projects took an insane amount of time to...

    Solved Can't uninstall apps from Metro

    Actually, I just fixed the issue. For some odd reason, the 'AUInstallAgent' folder wasn't located in the Windows directory, and apps couldn't be removed nor installed. I re-created the folder, rebooted, and I was able to install/remove apps just fine. I'm not sure why the folder was missing to...

    Solved Can't uninstall apps from Metro

    If I cannot fix it any other way I'll probably have to go that route. By the way, I ran a SFC scan and got a issue with a particular file: I don't think it's related to the Store issue, but I figured I'd post it anyway.

    Solved Can't uninstall apps from Metro

    AutoPlay? :confused: Also, I've tried clearing the Store cache, but the problem permits: I cannot updates apps nor can I remove them. Is there perhaps a way I can remove them manually?

    Solved Can't uninstall apps from Metro

    I'm attempting to uninstall apps downloaded from the Windows Store, but they keep coming back. Windows Store reports updates for the apps, but attempting to update them results in an "This app couldn't be installed" error. I'm guessing the apps were uninstalled properly, so now I cannot install...

    Solved How do I shut down Windows 8...?

    That's considered a "hard reset" and isn't the proper way to shut the computer down.

    Metro glitch?

    I do think it's a display driver issue; no amount of restarts fix the issue. It's actually pretty annoying since I have to mouse-over buttons in order to see what they say and the text is blurry. I hope a fix is implemented soon.

    Metro glitch?

    I'm sure a restart would solve the issue -- I was just wondering if there are other reports of a similar problem.

    Metro glitch?

    So I powered on the computer today and was met with this: The desktop is fine but the Charm Bar and Metro UI is totally bonkers. Any other reports of a similar issue?

    Solved Considering purchasing Windows 8 upon UK release.

    It takes some time getting used to but I'm enjoying it so far. You don't NEED a tablet to use it.

    Organizing Windows 8

    I found it alot faster than using the search in the Charm Bar. It's as simple as typing in the first few characters of a name of a program and it'll instantly find it. I can also specify which folders to index and what file types to filter. I normally wouldn't have used it in a Windows 7...

    Organizing Windows 8

    Hello, Right, so I've always had issues with organization in the past, but I'd like to start fresh with Windows 8. Here's my current setup: In order to minimize clutter I'm using Launchy as my main way of getting to my programs and games. I'm trying to avoid redundancy, so I'm not sure what...
