    Solved Why does Win8.1 suddenly forget I have printers?

    I think I found the answer. I did a system restore to the day before and the printers were restored; apparently Firefox had installed an update during that period, and Firefox was one of the browsers I was using.

    Solved Why does Win8.1 suddenly forget I have printers?

    I was taking care of some business online; printed a couple pages to save them; finished up my online business, then decided to print a photo. But suddenly every app that I normally can print from tells me I don't have a printer. ** I printed 30 minutes ago! ** I did not restart the pc, I...

    booting from a CD

    The particular CD I'm talking about at this time is a bootable recovery disk I made using AISBackup. It's for use if the HD becomes corrupted or unbootable for some reason. I was trying to test it to be sure it would boot; that's how I discovered how difficult it is to boot this computer from a CD.

    booting from a CD

    My wife has a new Gateway laptop with win8 pre-installed. This is my first experience with Windows 8. I've been emailing with the Gateway (Acer) support people about the problem of how to boot from a CD. Of course, every time I write, a different person responds, so there's no continuity, and...
