I cannot access the control panel at all. On the recent list the programs and features & Intel Graphics Settings cant be accessed. When I select both, it says the item is unavailable. It might have been moved, renamed, or removed. Do you want to remove it from this list?
so im having this strange problem with the windows precision drivers for my laptop. when right clicking with two fingers. there appears to be some sort of timeout before it stops registerng two clicks and goes back to registering only left clicks until i let go of the trackpad.
heres a video https://giant.gfycat.com/HardRealBat.webm
its odd, because if i install earlier drivers which doesnt have windows pecision support, its perfectly fine.
anyone else who has had this problem that might know how to solve it? its extremely annoying and id prefer to use the precision drivers over the awful older ones.
Hey folks, so I don't know if it's because I didn't pay enough attention in my Operating Systems class or I'm blanking on information I've already been given but I'm having a bit of trouble understanding what's going on with my CPU usage here. More directly, I'm trying to understand how "Average CPU" as detailed in resource monitor is tied into or reflects CPU Usage as detailed in Task Manager.
Here's my situation:
This morning I came to my computer (which was on overnight) and noticed what was going on in the first attached picture. Unusually so, System Interrupts was using much more "Average CPU" than usual. I often don't even see System Interrupts in the CPU window. I understand what System Interrupts are and what the significance is so I took a look at Task Manager and I'm only really using between .5% - 2% of CPU usage according to Task Manager (second picture).
I'm not entirely sure if I should be concerned or if it's just business as usual? I should also add that this is pretty much considered to be my computer relatively idle. I'm only using Chrome, Task Manager and Resource Monitor at the moment. No games or other abnormal applications running in the background as you can see.
Anyone know what's up?
I enabled Memory Integrity/Core Isolation in one of my workstations, but audio no longer works after rebooting. I can't turn it back off because the option is grayed out. It says "this setting is managed by your administrator." How can I turn off Core Isolation or enable audio?
EDIT: Solved this problem by updating my audio driver.
I couldn't really figure out anywhere else to ask advice about this, but if it doesn't belong here I'll gladly remove it.
Three years ago I got a new laptop for the start of three years in secondary school. When I logged on with my Microsoft account/Windows account, the whole setup from my old laptop was moved onto the new one. (Background, desktop etc). And I want to avoid that now, as I'm investing in a new one this summer. Is there any way to use my Microsoft/Windows account on the new laptop, without moving everything from the old one onto it? I want to start with a clean slate.
Thanks in advance :)
Before everything I wanna say that I saw the "too much transparency" and "big font" comments, I made this concept before seeing your comments, in the next concept I will try to correct these issues.
Big thanks! ^^
Hi, I am running Windows 7 and occasionally my screen contrast would change on it's own which I could fix by restarting the computer. Now it's like that all the time. It's like the contrast goes way up because the whites snow in my desktop background gets all bright and washed out. Can anyone help figure out what is doing this? Thanks
I have an Asus laptop Windows 10. searched up on google of my issue, I did that method of going to the device manger and to unistall the software and then restart the computer for it to automatically come back. This worked at first. But when I would shut off the computer for the night and turn it back on in the morning, it goes back to the red mark on the speaker icon that says the say problem "The audio peripheral appears to not be plugged in"
I tried switching to another software called "High definition audio" and that worked at first but the same problem when I turned it on the next day it goes back to being not connected again. I also noticed that when it worked, I would have to move the computer down or a certain spot to hear sounds or else it would go back to not having a sound.
Could my hardware be messed up? Would I have to take it to a repair shop to fix the audio hardware?
So I own a windows 7 ultimate (yeah its pretty old). And recently ive been needing something to do my assigments on since my laptop is failing me. The computer has a bunch of virsuses and makes the computer super duper slow, I was wondering how I could factory reset the computer so i can basically start it all fresh again.
After battling Microsoft's relentless bots or "agents" and tackling Microsoft's website searching for help I'm at a loss. Reddit please help!!
About two weeks ago, I opened a service order for my Surface Pro 4 to be refurbished. I have a standard warranty so straight off the bat I knew I would have to pay some sort of fee for a replacement device to be shipped back to me in New Zealand.
After putting together all my details I confirmed my Service Request and it was completed. All I had to do was print off some invoices here and a little sellotape there and my box was set to be shipped to Aussie. I was really excited. My Surface Pro 4 was no more than three months old before my flatmate accidently broke it, so having it fixed was a total relief.
To my surprise, my Service Order stated that my request was a "standard replacement" and I wasn't charged for anything, like zero as in $0.00. On one hand I had a devilish glee that was hoping I wasn't going to have to upfront costs, but on the other, I knew the technician who would eventually service my Surface wouldn't be that stupid. He wasn't.
Three days after my device was sent I received it back. Not knowing what the outcome was I ripped at the box like a child on Christmas only to find it was my original device with a letter stating my Surface Pro 4 had physical damage and did not qualify for a replacement device.
If Microsoft knew my device had physical damage (which I stated in my service order) why would they waste my time and money allowing me to send them a device they knew wasn't going to qualify for a replacement? Why was I not offered the option to pay for a refurbished device after my order did not meet their replacement standards? I was happy to upfront the costs of a refurbished device but now there is no option too. I now cant open a service order for the same device as it does not allow me to select it and I cant get through to chat to a technician at Microsoft as their bots wont put me through to chat to a real person. Perhaps my best bet is to wait until the warranty expires and open a "Out of Warranty" service?
I just want to use my Surface again for my photography. I have photoshoots coming up and it was a dream to use it on set but I'm at a loss on what to do now :(
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
So my computer has been intermittently locking while I'm actively using the computer. I didn't want to turn off the idle lock so I was testing to see if it had anything to do with the online Microsoft account that they suddenly required a couple months back. This started happening around then. So I tried to edit the group policy and local security settings. I disabled the "user requiring Microsoft account" to something like "users can’t use Microsoft accounts to login." I locked the PC and tried to login and it gives me credentials cannot be verified. Unplugging the Ethernet cable doesn’t do anything. Pretty sure I'm screwed. But thought I'd try here... On mobile sorry for formatting
So this is new. Playing just normal Klondike, not the daily challenges. And it's popping up with fullscreen video ads. This is new, anyone know the domain address I can add to the hosts file to block them?
Title explains my problem. If I look at in File Explorer, it says 1.99 TB, but when I look at in Speccy, it says 2794 GB. How do I get File Explorer to display the correct size?
When I try to factory reset my PC it says "installation media not found," and I was wondering if there was a way around that. I don't have any CDs or USBs, so I don't know if that's a problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a server up my loft that runs Windows 10. It's doing great at what I want it to do , but sometimes I need to connect to it to make a couple of quick adjustments.
I've been using teamviewer for this but it now suspects I'm using it commercially and kills any connection in about a minute locking me out for 10 minutes. There is a process I can go through to get it unlocked, but it takes up to 30 days and is onerous.
Is there any way I can get remote access to the desktop of the server, from my desktop PC without having to go up the loft and click accept?
For example, on the iPhone when you press the wake/lock button 5 times it will disable biometric authentication and require the passcode. Or, when you reboot the device it will require a passcode. I can't seem to find a way to do this with a computer running windows 10 and windows hello.
I have a Lenovo laptop (wifi only) and a mini ZBOX barebones PC (wired connection), both running Windows 10. Both are discoverable to each other only intermittently. Right now, neither can see each other. Two days ago, I could discover the ZBOX from my Lenovo laptop, but not vice-versa. Not long before that, both computers could discover each other and share files, etc.
I'm wondering why I have this problem? It seems like it should be more reliable. I know one source of the issue is that every time Windows updates, my advanced share settings tend to reset (turning off password-protected sharing or network discovery) and block discoverability. Also, my firewall settings revert to block certain apps, like Plex.
Here are the network settings I have set up on both PCs currently:
- Turn on network discovery (allow automatic setup of network connected devices)
- Turn on file and printer sharing
- Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the public folder
- User 128-bit encryption to help protect file sharing connections
- Enable media streaming (so, when I go to Windows explorer, click Network, I can see the media devices for both PCs listed there, and on both PCs)
- Turn on password protected sharing
- I have selected several folders on an external drive on the ZBOX to enable sharing everything to Everyone
After setting the above, I have reset both PCs several times
TLDR; Why isn't my network discovery working?
