    Programs constantly hang/stop responding on Windows 8.1

    OK, I've contacted a couple of helpers and hopefully one of them will be here shortly. While you're waiting, if you would, post the results of your sfc/scannow for them. Also, check the rest of the things suggested in the thread.

    Programs constantly hang/stop responding on Windows 8.1

    Good morning BKRMSA and welcome to EightForums. For what it's worth, thus far, it seems that none of our more talented helpers have noticed this thread. One reason being that it was started back in 2014 and the last post prior to yours was June 25, 2015. I will contact a couple of helpers and...

    PaperPort and Windows 8

    Thanks loads, Finplanner! I haven't reinstalled PaperPort 14 on Windows 10, so that's very good to know.

    Office 2016 preview is asking me to activate/product key ?

    No key except the one for an Office 365 subscription will work, Jimbo. Even those who Previewed Office 365 before the public release had to buy their own subscription. Yep, this is a new thing with Microsoft. As to a *proper* trial later, this is the one available and I don't think it will be...

    Office 2016 preview is asking me to activate/product key ?

    You must have a subscription to Office 365 in order to run the preview. This has been a requirement of the Preview from day one. Further, any prior versions of Office must be removed from your computer. Office 365 and Office 2010/2013 will not run side-by-side.

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    So easy to get into trouble isn't it? :) I know the feeling. You want to say something and then you discover it may violate an NDA.

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    And if I'm downloading (mine goes to sleep while downloading if I don't set it to "never sleep")? Can you turn it off until you're through downloading?

    Windows 8.1 refuses to sleep

    Nah, can't do that, Orbital . . . this HP desktop has 8.1 on it and is my main machine, so it has to stay the way it is for now. Once Win10 is released may be another thing, though.

    Moving Files to OneDrive, I get "File Failed to Upload"

    The title says it partially, but that's not the whole story: I decided to use OneDrive, and so I sent a folder from my external Toshiba drive to OneDrive. It took forever and three days to finish, and seemingly isn't finished yet. :( I now get, File Failed to Upload -- There was an error while...

    Solved Installed RAM Not Correct

    Thanks, Popeye. Much appreciated. Admitting what we did wrong can help others by alerting them to not "do that". Too, if they see that those of us that are "supposed" to be knowledgeable can do silly stuff, it gives them hope that they can get to guru status too. :busted:

    Solved Installed RAM Not Correct

    You didn't offend me at all. I admitted what I'd done wrong, which opened me up and let y'all in on it. It's great that we can laugh at our own mistakes and even encourage others to laugh at us too. That's what makes this forum so great.

    Yup, but I'd already found my mistake by the time you posted. I've done stupider, but I don't remember when. :what:

    As you saw, it was the glasses and lighting that needed checking, not the RAM numbers. :doh:

    Solved Installed RAM Not Correct

    Update!!! I also had an HP dv7 that cratered about a month ago. I checked the RAM in it and it's also the same, so I took out the RAM I had gotten from the first broken laptop. Snatched the RAM out of the dv7 (2 GB per stick), put it into this dv9700 and it works! I now see 4.00 GB RAM!:dinesh...
