    Automatic updates stop laptop from working

    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.

    Automatic updates stop laptop from working

    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...

    Automatic updates stop laptop from working

    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...

    Automatic updates stop laptop from working

    FAILED, AGAIN!!! 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...

    Automatic updates stop laptop from working

    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. :-(...

    Automatic updates stop laptop from working

    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...

    Can anyone tell me what I need to do?

    [Sorry for posting in the wrong topic.] :think: I'll try that, but what will happen to my other User that is still there? WHY did this happen, any idea? Not that you're a MS fortune teller! :cool:

    Microsoft to Fix Blurry Text Bug in Windows 8.1 RTM – Rumo

    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...

    Can anyone tell me what I need to do?

    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...

    Solved What's This on my Desktop?

    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...

    Solved What's This on my Desktop?

    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...

    Solved What's This on my Desktop?

    Windows Pro 8 with Media Center Build 9200 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?

    Do you obey the speed limit?

    :D Just thought the accident you mentioned was near the 85mph road...not by a long-shot!

    Do you obey the speed limit?

    I saw an article where the first death crash was reported on the 85mph highway, is that the same one? edit, never mind, I see you're not IN TX! I know the news is all over this speed limit story, but that stretch of road is not like a regular freeway situation. People die in crashes every...

    Do you obey the speed limit?

    Thanks for the welcome! I've been on the 7 Forums for a bit, but there is more to learn with 8, like the legal hacks to make it do what you want. :) It stands for speed demon, that's what family named me. :rolleyes:

    Do you obey the speed limit?

    Then you understand COMPLETELY! :D I think there's a stretch of road between Austin and San Antone that they just upped the limit to 80 or something? edit, uh, make that 85!

    Do you obey the speed limit?

    I speed, it's my moniker. (given to me, not taken). But going too slow can get you killed, and in my city, going below the speed limit on freeways is askin' for it.
