    Monitors turning off when idle?

    First, two different Windows 8.1 computers and two different monitors with the same problems. My main computer has dual monitors and both monitors on my main computer and the monitor on my aux computer have the same problem. The fact that this problem started on both computers at around the same...

    Monitors turning off when idle?

    I've checked one of my monitors and iterated through all the OSD settings and there is no setting for the monitor to blank itself or any power saving functions that would account for this behavior. I switched the monitors and changed them in the control panel to be in the correct relation to...

    Monitors turning off when idle?

    I've got two Windows 8.1 computers and on one I've had the same monitors for years and on the other, one monitor is 4 months old and the other 3-4 years old. I've noticed recently that I'll leave for 5-20 minutes and I'll come back and my monitors have blanked. Prior to a month or so ago this...

    Solved How to update to Intel version 10.x chipset drivers?

    As far as I can tell from researching some of the hardware that didn't have drivers installed, it seems like it's mostly hardware that's usually associated with servers and this Asus motherboard is not a server class motherboard. So I found that Intel has a separate driver package for...

    Solved How to update to Intel version 10.x chipset drivers?

    Ok, first I'm posting here because I'm using Windows 8.1 not Windows 10. I did what I said and swapped the old motherboard for this new x99 motherboard with a Broadwell E CPU and while it went better than I expected after running the 10.1.1.42 chipset drivers (which support the x99 chipset) and...

    Solved How to update to Intel version 10.x chipset drivers?

    I don't have an example right now but I seem to remember that in Device Manager a slew of Intel devices had drivers that on the driver tab said "Driver Provider: Microsoft" and "Driver Date: x/xx/2006" or some ridiculously old date like that and that nothing I tried could get those drivers...

    Solved How to update to Intel version 10.x chipset drivers?

    I'll give it a try but if I recall the last time when I tried this instead of genuine Intel drivers what I got is Microsoft signed drivers and sub-par performance and when I ran the Intel chipset 10.x installer it ran but did not replace or update the Microsoft drivers with Intel drivers. Which...

    Solved How to update to Intel version 10.x chipset drivers?

    I'm getting ready to upgrade my main computer from an LGA 1066 motherboard to an LGA 2011-V3 motherboard / CPU / RAM and I know from past experience that the Intel version 10 chipset drivers setup program will not update existing drivers to version 10.x drivers. In the past 9.x and below you...

    Windows 8.1 can't install AMD chipset drivers?

    Itaregid: While Asus makes the motherboard, AMD makes the chipsets that Asus uses on their AMD compatible motherboards (a fact I'm sure you're aware of). Asus is rather famous for at most updating their drivers pages for a year or two hence why there are no Windows 8 chipset drivers. But AMD on...

    Windows 8.1 can't install AMD chipset drivers?

    Yes, 100% certain (since I'm the one who built it and installed the OS in the first place) it was Windows XP x64 since I have the old hard drive I can just reconnect it and boot it up, here's a picture: Like I said this was not an upgrade but I swapped in a brand new hard drive and did a clean...

    Windows 8.1 can't install AMD chipset drivers?

    I've done a new install of Windows 8.1 on a system that had been running Windows XP x64, I swapped out the hard drive for a brand new one and installed from scratch. This system uses an Asus M5A78L-M LX Plus motherboard which uses an AMD 760G (780L)/SB710 chipset. Since the drivers available on...

    Windows 8.1 no administrator access?

    I'm sorry but the title was too short for me to accurately describe the problem that I'm trying to solve so please bear with me. I'm trying to fix problems on a work computer that had been setup by a previous employee that seems to have some very strange problems. The computer has Windows 8.1...

    Windows 8 Disk errors but disks test good?

    I owe you a sincere apology, I had two sets of these files on my main computer one of which I'd ftp'ed from that AMD system and the other from my new Intel system and I attached the files from the AMD system (again) rather than the files from the Intel. That was totally my fault. Norm
