    Taskbar thumbnail previews not appearing, tooltip instead

    Just thought I'd follow-up on this eternal mystery now that I'm on Windows 10 with an nVidia graphics card. It still happens. I wish I was kidding.

    Cliff, yes, of course. Sorry, it was late, and I assumed he was talking about running programs. To be clear, I was always talking about running programs only.

    David, that is beyond bizarre. I've never heard of such a mix like that. All programs should show previews--when the feature is working.

    They are. Don't forget that this works most of the time until some condition is reached, very much like a GDI depletion or something similar (though it's not that). Then restarting Explorer.exe is needed to get things back to normal. If it was just a case of it not ever working, it would be a...

    Just the default Windows themes, none of the 3rd-party UX stuff.

    I don't think it's a common problem, though I don't know why. Those settings are the same here except that I have the top two animations off as well as mouse pointer shadows.

    Just wanted to bring this subject up again in case someone has stumbled on exactly why it happens. I can confirm that it's also an issue in Windows 10, which is no surprise.

    After update to windows 8.1, computer does not restart

    I now have the same issue, and I suspect it started after August Windows Updates, but I reboot so infrequently I'm not sure. Did you ever find an answer to the issue? In my case, the monitor sleeps for about 90 seconds, and then presto, just like you, you see the BIOS logo and Windows boots...

    I was going to start my own thread about this, so I'm glad to have found this one. I've had this problem for years through multiple installs. Whether it started with 8.0 I'm not sure (I'm leaning towards it being in Win7 too, but it's been a long time), but the latest 8.1 doesn't resolve it...

    Avoid VPN drop when switching users?

    Does anyone know of a hack for this? It's not new to Win8 and is by design, according to the definition of the error # left in the applog (see below). This seems like the sort of thing that there would be a workaround for, but I haven't found it yet if so. It's a definite annoyance.

    Solved Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000

    But weren't you going to check in the applet to see whether it's pointing to the external monitor or the laptop's? In the applet, that's in several areas under the "Display" subsection (advanced mode). Win8 also has its own UI for this. Are they all pointing away from the external monitor...

    Solved Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000

    Do you see "Intel Graphics and Media" when looking in Control Panel (small icons view)? You should also be able to bring it up with Ctrl-Alt-F12. If you don't have it, then try reinstalling the driver, since it's installed by default. System clean? You mentioned W7--that was a typo, right?

    Solved Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000

    @ironical, that is an interesting one and certainly not the usual problem around here, which is typically getting the driver installed/working in the first place. When you were checking the display settings, were you looking both in W8's settings and Intel's advanced mode applet? If both areas...

    Solved Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000

    So, to be clear, the installation actually completes, you're asked to reboot, you do, but then you find that it's not actually installed? If so, that's very strange. What is listed in Device Manager now in the display adapters category? On the properties, what's the name, the driver version #...

    Solved Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000

    ironical, you should be able to use the official W8 beta driver that Intel put out a couple weeks ago (see a handful of posts above). Is that what you tried? The workaround on the first page is no longer needed. If you have the Dell-supplied driver installed now, you may have to uninstall it first.

    Solved Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000

    Intel has finally revealed when the full Win8 (beta) driver for HD Graphics (2nd/3rd-gen) will be officially available: early May. It'll be posted on the Intel Download Center. I wonder if this suggests that the Win8 Release Preview is coming sooner than expected? The most optimistic date...

    Intel might have gotten wind of Lenovo's postings, since only AMD/Nvidia drivers remain. Oh well, at least the one we have works, and maybe Intel will even actually release one for real before the end of summer. Windows 8 Beta Drivers

    Solved Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000

    I haven't even seen that problem with this version either, though I did see it with several of the Win7 drivers at random times (playing videos wasn't necessary). I wish I'd tried the earlier Lenovo version when it came out, since there's a good chance that it worked well too, and I could have...
