    Breathing Life into Surface Pro 1

    Well I have already re-installed like 5 times, and it wouldn't upgrade. I thought I would keep it as a window 8 machine but one app I use is no longer supported on 8. Does anyone have an answer on the battery question? I think that is the real culprit. Battery detection problems were...

    Biggest problem with Windows Store

    The biggest problem with the Windows Store apps are, if you purchase them and later, let's say a year from now you re-install and want to reload the same apps, if the app has been discontinued, there is no way that you can acquire it. You are simply screwed. At least with desktop apps you have...

    Move from Windows 8 to 8.1 NOW!!!

    Okay, for some reason I got the wrong idea here. I was thinking that they were not going to allow the free upgrade to Windows 8.1/8.1 Pro any longer. I don't know where I got that idea from. After re-reading the article, again, I believe all they are saying is that support is no longer...

    Will Windows 10 make it

    I think this is debatable, there has been no official word that I know of, on how MS would handle re-installs should your OS becomes unstable. It is not known if you can use your same 7,8,8.1 keys to unlock after the 1st year. Nor is it known if they will provide a install disc.. Now here is...

    My windows 8.1 Asus laptop won't turn on

    Interesting, you said that is when you first noticed it, "keyboard problem", makes me wonder if you have a stuck key, or the keyboard driver got corrupted, something like that. In any case, good luck. Let us know how it turns out.
