    Solved Monitor Help

    I agree with caperjack. The default monitor drivers will work just fine. The manufacturer drivers are primarily intended to add specific ICC profiles that may or may not be different from the default Windows profiles. In my case, I have the HP driver installed but the ICC profile is actually no...

    Installing Win 8.1 Pro on Lenovo B590 with FreeDOS

    Hi mtbvfr, Personally, I would not attempt to size anything during the installation and I would not worry about sizing anything else at this time either. Generally, Win 8.1 does just fine at default settings in those areas. So, if you are ready to get started, then just go for it and lets see...

    Hello rbrewster, I cannot say conclusively that Silverlight could be the definitive cause of your issue but there is one easy way to find out. Just uninstall it and see what happens. Good luck, my2cents

    Installing Win 8.1 Pro on Lenovo B590 with FreeDOS

    Hi Michael, Best of luck with your Windows 8.1 installation; however, since I don't see the B590 on Lenovo's upgradable list, be prepared for some issues and hope for the best. Also, their Win 8.1 driver selection is quite limited for your model so you may have to go elsewhere for some of those...

    Solved Win 8 will not restore from backup, error code 34 at boot

    I only have two remaining suggestions and they are not based on technical merit relative to the above: 1. Try using the diskpart "clean" command to take your HD back to unallocated and see if the restoral works. 2. Look to your BIOS for anything that might have changed relative to your...

    Now run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and, if all errors are corrected, test Defender again.

    Solved Win 8 will not restore from backup, error code 34 at boot

    One more thing. When you attempted to do a restoral to your old HD, did you set the appropriate options to "delete all existing partitions" (on the target drive if available) as part of the process? Please be advised that I know nothing about Paragon because I use Macrium; however, I did manage...

    Solved Win 8 will not restore from backup, error code 34 at boot

    You could cut that down to 1 clean install (Win 8.0) and 1 upgrade (to 8.1) by following this procedure (if necessary): http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/13375-clean-install-windows-8-upgrade.html

    Windows Defender Error 0x800106ba (Not Running)!

    That information would have been very useful if included in your first post. Anyway, try this: How do I reset Windows Update components? If you tried that already run sfc /scannow (from an elevated command prompt) to see if it finds any errors.

    Windows Defender Error 0x800106ba (Not Running)!

    In addition to Arpan's suggestion, please make sure your Windows installation is still activated as that error can be indicative of an expired license as well.

    Solved Keep getting USB connecting sound

    Hello madmecca Do you have any USB devices plugged in when the sound occurs? If so, try unplugging them to see if that stops the sounds. This will also give some clue as to the device that may be causing the issue because it appears that something is intermittently losing the connection and...

    Windows 8 Strange Issue with desktop flashing on and off

    Hi davidkimball, At first glance, I'm suspecting a graphics' driver/card issue but I could be wrong. In any event, could you check the Event Viewer logs to see if there are any entries being logged that are "time-coincident" with the flashing? If some are found, please post a few examples...
