Any other suggestions, please let me know. Thx!
This laptop has BRD, but ANY Asus software makes this machine unstable. Did not use any of their software on this clean install of 8. Think it is an Asus problem, but don't know what.
Ran once, restarted, ran again; no change, nothing found. :cry:
More info on this laptop. (not one listed in my profile)
Intel Core i7, Q720 @ 1.60GHz
This is a gamer laptop and I know the chip speed was faster than that before. So low now because overclocking software suite (Asus) is not...
axe0, thanks for the reply! I will try that next.
I tried installing 8.1 again early this AM, and was able to capture this before it reverted back to 8, again:
Error message installing Windows 8.1: sorry, we couldn't complete the update to win
dows 8.1. we've restored your previous version of...
It was at 100%, then froze, had to power off to restart. It auto rolled back to 8, again.
Trying to get 8.1 so I can upgrade to 10.
ANY IDEAS GREATLY APPRECIATED!
WHERE can I find a list of errors as to why it won't upgrade? IF it was not up to spec, it wouldn't install...
Reporting back on my situation. I pulled both HDDs, ran all the usual thorough checks on them, plus for virus, malware, etc., and all clean.
I could not open several locked folders on the drive that 8 was installed on, even with the Take Ownership command and changing permissions to Full. :-(...
Same Problem, Almost
It looks like the OP didn't post back that Brooklyn567's fix worked or not?
I can't even try uninstalling external mouse because the trackpad has stopped working, period!
I suspected the external mouse was a problem, and uninstalled everything when trackpad was working...
I am still seeing the blurry text, since upgrading to 8.1. FF is my daily browser (sometimes IE), but both look awful! I can Ctrl+ to up the size and sometimes makes it readable, but not always (and a PITA!) and not for long.
I tried updating vid drivers, says they're the latest already...
I wish I didn't take the 8.1 update as things were just fine before! :(
That being said, I've lost a lot of functions, one being the subject being discussed here. I have tried the tutorial numerous times, as Admin., and even changing my user to a Standard; in both cases, it keeps giving me an...
Well, sounds like a bug with their activation for add-ons? Bet when I turn on other laptop, it will be de-activated and I'll have to re-enter the MC Key I just replaced--will report back.
It validated, and it shouldn't have since Key was already in use.
I used another Hotmail account and got...
OK, how did that happen, because it was before. :shock:
What do I do now?
Never mind, I found the problem...it's the KEY for Media Center. I used the same email, so I guess it gave me the same Key.
Odd, since it didn't do that with the Windows downloads.
So, I guess I need to request...
Windows Pro 8 with Media Center
That appeared in the lower right corner of my Desktop (Desktop screen, not Tiles screen). After I installed (free) Media Center and it rebooted, that popped up.
Nothing like that appeared or is showing on my other laptop after the MC install. Any ideas?
