Charms Bar Hint - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

  1. #10


    Was thinking in the last little while that it might be something to do with the pointer as if it has some noise in it. I slowed it down a little from default and will see how it goes.

    Could be. Hopefully that'll do it.

    Oddly when I saw the last response by Brink my cursor was about in the middle, I moved it over to the right and when I went to scroll this page up the black bar popped out again then went back in. I have no clue. That's the report. I hate computers again LOL

    It sounds like the touchpad is still triggering it when you scroll.

    Do you have the latest touchpad drivers installed from HP's site for your laptop's model?

    Yes I have the latest HP touchpad driver. I moved the cursor slowly last time watching it all the way and never was closer than about 2 inches from the top corner.

    I must admit that I'm at a loss as well now for why the Charms is still opening like that.

    It is hard to say what the deal is with the charms...I will keep my eye on it.

    It is a nice laptop and fast isn't the word for it with the 840 Pro ssd and that 2740qm i7...500 read and writes on the benchmark tests..I was astounded...BUT it doesn't like the restart function..you know like if it applies an update and needs to be restarted....it screws up. For one thing error check won't work if it is scheduled (I had drive error once) unless I shut down manually and start it up, plus the wi-fi won't connect automatically every time on a restart so something it up with it. It might be to do with that new world standard that they use U something that is similar to BIOS, I think you guys know what I am talking about...causes this thing to boot in about 5 seconds with the SSD.....Something is just not right. I avoid doing re starts and it seems fine.

    For the restart and shut down issue, see if turning off Fast Startup may be the issue.

    Turned fast start off and it still comes up on the desktop in a few seconds after a manual start. I didn't notice any difference. It also failed to connect the wifi on a couple of re-starts but if it sits for a couple of minutes it will eventually connect itself. Same old thing. Re-starts are not affected by the check box I notice.
    Semi-froze on the app screen on the last boot up before I unchecked the fast start box. It normally comes up to desktop. I had to ctl/alt/del to get out of it.

    Might have to go back to Win 7. It ran pretty good for 2 years with an SSD.
    Thanks
