    Windows 8 Consumer Preview randomly freezes

    Infmachine, Old Buddy, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I can solve your problem. The bad news is that your problem is unsovable. The drivers on a laptop are far more specific than on a desktop. It is rarely a good idea to upgrade one Windows Operating System to another on a...

    Cannot Access My Contacts

    Okay, they list similar questions on the right, and I found out how to access my contacts through the "People" ap. But I cannot add people to the different groups that I have, because the different groups aren't listed.
