Another one of the odd issues that we've been seeing, all of us family with HP's is where you'll have something open and you'll be clicking - for me it was just the task manager. The darn thing just stops and does nothing. All I wanted to do...

    RE: Win 8.1 will not complete apps install from MS store

    I believe Dad's came with 8.1 already on it because when he 1s got his and I first saw it, it was different than our HP, which only had 8 on it. And I tried to upgrade to 8.1 on ours but that was a disaster, for some reason, so we ended up reverting back to 8, another mess and I said heck no...

    1st - thanks to all who have been kind enough to lend their computer knowledge. Now, the bad news is that we finally had to make the decision to put our beautiful cat to sleep. Was very hard. Then, I guess from the stress & exhaustion, I ended up with a bad sinus/cold attack. Now, the good...

    Solved RE: Windows mess - questions with Hard Drive

    oh, when we did the 8.1 install, ran it a few weeks, had problems and tried to revert back with the refresh, it would not accept my windows 8 key. I called Microsoft, explained the issue to them and the fellow gave me a new product key. Would that help or does it make things even more weird?
