I installed an extra HDD, but after that every time I boot up I have this black screen with blinking cursor line for ages before Windows start. I actually counted how many times it blinks .....178 times.

I checked in the bios settings to see if it is set to start with the correct HDD, and it is.

Drivers/Hardware :: USB Flash Drive - Light Keeps Blinking?

Dec 6, 2015

I recently purchased a Windows 10 tablet, everything else works fine except one annoying issue. I have a 64 GB USB 2.0 flash drive, which works well on my desktop PC (Windows 7). I also have another 16 GB USB stick (USB 2.0). Both USB sticks work fine on my desktop PC. However, when I test the full size USB port on my tablet, only the 16 GB USB stick worked. For the 64 GB USB stick, as soon as I plug it in, the USB light starts to blink forever.

While the USB light blinks, I keep hearing the windows sound for detecting new USB device, but see no notification messages. When I open DISK management or File explorer, I see no trace of this USB stick at all. I also checked "device manager", under USB controllers, I do NOT see any USB Mass storage there, and there are no unknown device in the device manager either. I tried re-scan devices, restart computer, clean USB registry ... None of them works. Then I choose to show "hidden devices" in device manager, and now see a new "USB Mass Storage Device" appear under USB controllers, however the status is "not connected", even though the USB stick is plugged in and the light is blinking.

As I said, I tested the USB stick with my other computer and worked fine. I also tested the tablet's USB port by plugging in other USB devices, such as a 16 GB USB stick, a MicroSD USB reader with a 32GB MicroSD inserted, a USB mouse, etc. and they all worked fine. Now I am really puzzled. It does not look like my USB stick is dead or the USB port on the tablet has any problem.

Performance :: Blinking Loading Circle And Touchpad Not Scrolling Properly

Jan 23, 2016

I recently upgraded my computer from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 and have noticed some issues:

Whenever I stop moving the mouse, the little blue loading circle keeps blinking. Now I don't exactly if it's causing any problems but I'm sure it wasn't doing that before I upgraded and I think it may be related to this second issue:

My touchpad no longer scrolls with two fingers. Now it only scrolls via touching the right side of the pad and dragging my finger up or down. No two finger gestures work anymore.

There seems to be a new driver called Elantech and I've found a settings menu for it but the gesture controls say they're turned on even though they don't work.

I have an MSI GT 60
i7 Windows 10

USB 3.0 Ports Shows No Sign Of Connection Like Blinking LED After Upgrading Laptop

Aug 20, 2015

I had recently clean installed Windows 10 on my laptop. Before doing that, all my drivers were working well except for WiFi - a problem since build 10158. Currently I am on build 10240.

When I plug usb sticks into the USB 3.0 ports on my laptop, they don't connect. It's not like the 'not recognised' problem. It simply shows no sign of connection like blinking its LED or any response from the OS. On the other hand, when I connect my Lumia phone in the same ports, it warns me of Slow Charging.

And when I plug it into the 2.0 port, it gets connected. Why is this happening? All of my device drivers are up to date. I believe its not a hardware issue because my laptop has two such ports and both of them have the same problem.

BSOD :: Black Screen With Blinking Cursor Bar Before Booting Into Window Just After BIOS Page

Nov 8, 2015

I recently upgraded to window 10 from window 7 with iso file. I didn't had internet access then, but my window run successfully. Later, when i tried to attach another display with Laptop it did not detect it. So, i installed the windows updates. But after installing i was unable to boot into windows. A black screen with blinking cursor appears right after the Dell Logo. I am only able to go into bios setup by pressing F2, no safe mode option. I tried making a bootable Pen drive for repair but even it wasn't detected. I already change the boot priority in bios menu. Therefore i am unable to fresh install the window as laptop cd drive is not functioning from quite some time.

Cannot Type In Search Box Now

Aug 8, 2015

I have updated to Windows 10 and all went well. Looks great.

However, since yesterday, I have not been able to type in the search bar. One clicks the mag glass or search box but nothing happens.

I tried, such as:


Windows powershell key "Get -AppXPacjkage -Allusers......."

DSIM /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth......"

Checked for any more Windows updates

None of this worked.

I then created a new user to find that it works with a new profile. It seems we are at the mercy of a user profile that could become corrupt at any moment and the only solution is to create another user.

Cannot Type Text In Emails

Feb 3, 2016

I recently switched over to Windows 10. Prior to downloading Windows 10, to access my emails I typically entered the word " ixquick" in my search engine and then type "century link home" in the ixquick search box. I click on Century LInk Home which takes me to the Century Link web site. I then click on the "Mail" tab to read, respond to, or create new emails. I have been going through all these steps and through ixquick for additional security.
Now, however, when I do this same process after switching over to Windows 10 I have discovered that I am unable to type any text in new emails, or type any text when responding to emails. I can type text in the Topic Title box with no problem but the system will not allow me type anything in the message box section of the email.
Is it possible that I just have something turned off, or a button that needs to be pushed?

Selecting A File By Starting To Type Its Name?

Oct 30, 2015

In Windows 7, and before, in Explorer, I could start to type a name of a file that I wanted and Explorer would jump down to that file, but under Windows 10, it automatically starts doing a search of the folder. As such, I am forced to scroll down and find the file manually. There has to be a way to disable the automatic search feature and let it run like before.

File Type Changed When Try To Open It (LFL To BC)

Nov 24, 2015

I was looking through a file within the file called" Windows8 OS".

The file was called "Microsoft.SqlServer.Compact.400.32" and it was a "LFL" file type. In trying to open it I inadvertently changed it to a "BC" file type.

Question, how do I change it back to it's original file type?

Second question, since it was in a windows 8 OS file does it matter or is it still relevant in my Windows 10 OS ?

Upgraded From 8.1 Now Locked Out - Can't Type Password

Aug 1, 2015

I just installed the free upgrade (Windows 8.1 to Windows 10) on my laptop and can not enter the password.

My existing 8.1 account's password had an (german umlaut) character and now after Windows 10 (language english US) is installed I see no chance to type in my password. I'm stuck at the login screen...

I already tried the virtual keyboard and [Alt][0][2][4][6], but it doesn't work. What the heck!! How can I login?
