My external HDD stop working after upgrading to windows 10 pro? I have tied different USB ports but the problem persist. Strange thing the same HDD works perfectly on my laptop running on windows 7 pro..
Today I took the plunged into the windows 10 experience. Everything is great and all but my speakers that are plugged into my external monitor, via hdmi, aren't being recognized. I have confirmed that the speakers do still work, by testing them with my phone. My computer does sport an Realtek HD audio device. Windows says the drivers are up to date when checked with device manager for both.
I do know i can plug the speakers straight into my laptop, but the speaker wires aren't long enough to reach to that side of my laptop on my current set up. My external monitor is a g247hl, not that it should matter. plugged into that is a Logitech speaker system and a lenovo speaker system (through a slitter).
I cannot get my external hard drives to give me write permissions over my local network in some directions.I recently replaced our hard drives with SSDs and with the reinstall, I had some difficulty getting the permissions on my external hard drives working correctly.
I did several Google searches and read a procedure that I needed to go through adding a user called "Everyone" to each of my drives that I wanted to access and share. I did this and gave "Everyone" full read/write permissions and also went into advanced options (or wherever it is) and chose the checkbox to give all child files and folders these same permissions. It took ages but eventually it all seemed OK.
I had one folder which could not be corrected this way and ended up having go change each file individually. Anyway, I thought I was all set but if I try to move a file from Machine A to Machine B (the drives are attached to , I get an error that I don't have permission to do this. No overrides or Admin permissions are an option and when I check the specifics it *is* correctly shared with not only Everyone but this machine as well (so it attempted to fix the permissions itself at some point). However, if I go to Machine B and grab the files from Machine A over the network ...
I installed Windows 10 for the first time a few hours ago. I like the new interface, etc, but I have a few problems:
Xbox One wired controller doesn't work. Windows 10 automatically install a driver for it, but it still doesn't work. I tried some solutions like this, but without success. I haven't that Microsoft Xbox One Controller entry he wrote about.
Xbox controller works fine with another PC. And these USB ports as well, works fine with other devices.
Up until a few days ago I was able to import .MOV files from my iPhone 5 to my Windows 10 computer and play them with the default 'Films & TV' app. For some reason my computer now hates this file type. It wont play any audio unless its through the slow Quicktime media player, even vlc doesn't work. Also I edit these video with Sony Vegas Pro 13 and now whenever I drag them onto the timeline the video corrupts and screen freezes!!
I've got a system here which is acting up and I'm looking for ideas of how to resolve. Specs are:
Windows 10 Home (upgraded from W8.1) i7-3632 8GB RAM 64bit Inspiron 17R5720 laptop
Here's the problem: Everything works fine upon boot, but then, something happens over time, and things stop working.
Start left-click not working/Start right-click works Notification left-click not working/Notification right-click menu shows, but open action center doesn't work Quick Launch opens and works All icons pinned to the taskbar work including File Explorer Cortana and search not working - can't type in box Speaker icon left-click does not work, right-click does
This is all intermittent, and resolved with a reboot.
Something sets it off to stop working - perhaps the screensaver/lockscreen?
My mouse and keyboard were doing fine with Windows 7, but after I upgraded to Windows 10, my wired mouse and keyboard have been prone to just randomly stop working for a few seconds before working again. When it happens to my keyboard, what key I had been pressing would be typing over and over again, while my mouse is stuck in place (screen is not frozen, videos keep playing, etc). In addition with the windows 10 upgrade, I also got a new graphics card at the same time, but I don't think a graphics/video card could be responsible for this kind of thing, right?
I have no viruses/malware, and when I go to the devices manager and try to update the "HID-Compliant Mouse" driver online, it seems like it's the recent driver. Same for the keyboard. Therefore, I'm leaning to the Windows 10 to be the culprit, but I'm not too sure.
My USB Ports stop working the second windows start to load. My logitech g710 & G502 light up and work fine in the motherboard BIOS but the second windows starts to load the stop working. I have been using a PS/2 Keyboard to navigate through the OS. I have restore windows. I have install a fresh build of windows. I have updated the motherboard BIOS. I have updated to the latest drives in my device manager and still no luck.

This has happened a lot since my upgrade to Windows 10, and it's really starting to get on my nerves. Seemingly randomly, my keyboard will stop responding to what I type, and my touchpad completely stops as well (no, I did not accidentally click to disable it). These problems will never resolve themselves on their own, but as soon as I reset the computer everything works again - to me, that sounded like a driver crash, but nope! I checked the driver menu and it told me everything was running just fine. What's even more strange is that I have the backlight keyboard enabled so that when I type, it lights up. And strangely, the keys still light up when I press them, so I know it's registering my typing SOME how.
You would also think that this would be a software problem since it fixes immediately upon reset, but I've noticed that this issue seems to crop up a lot right after I have moved my computer..
In order to possibly do testing on what is causing this (I've tried everything I can think of) I am purposely not resetting my computer (this is a touch screen, but this on-screen keyboard typing is obnoxious). Currently, both keyboard and touchpad don't work, but a usb mouse I use does (the computer is also set so that using the usb mouse does not disable the touchpad).
I have been using Windows 10 for some months by now but in the past month i have been experiencing the following issue:
Sometimes when i turn my computer on i can't do anything using my taskbar (such as controling sound and viewing alerts) or my windows start menu (when i click the windows logo nothing happens). This comes back to normal once i restart the system.
The Camera worked fine on my tablet which was earlier on Windows 8.1. But, after updating to Windows 10 Home, it gives me an error - Make sure your camera is connected and not being used by another app. I tried the following :-
1. Updated the app. 2. Turned Windows Firewall off. 3. Tried disabling and enabling the Camera - OV2680.
I upgraded my Surface Pro to Windows 10 and after I did wifi stopped working. Went to Control Panel to check the adapters and none were listed. Checked device manager and saw that the Marvell adpater was working properly. So I tried a usb wifi adpater I have and had the same problem. Had to roll back to 8.1
Product Name: Hp Omen 15 Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) Wifi card: Intel Wireless-N 7260
since some days my wifi has stopped working.If I click on Wifi icon it shows only ONE (max two) NETWORK:And I live in a building with 20+ networks, as you can see from WiFi Analyzer (I'm the red one on the right).If I deactive/reactive Wifi with fn+f12, it goes to Airplane mode and to Wifi mode again and it eventually shows all the networks/My Wifi is on the top. If it's saved, Windows connects to it and then it drops the connection; if it's not saved and I try to connect, it says "You're not able to connect to this network".The fun fact is that after some seconds every network disappear and only one is showed (probably the neighbour one..I dunno).
I've already tried to HARD-RESET the notebook keeping the power button for 10/15sec with the laptop turned off.I've already tried to follow these instructions [URL] ... updating drivers (Intel 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 [Windows 10 default], 18.32.0 [Lastest drivers]) with no success. Everytime I install a new drivers, I uninstalled the previous one + Wireless software + reboot.
I tried to uncheked "Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power" on my Wifi hardware settings without success.The HP Network support says I didn't choose a Wifi (Really? The problem is I don't see my Wifi on the list!).This is not related to a new Windows 10 upgrade since I've installed it months ago and It's the first time I've this problem :/ It always worked
I tried different settings too/I changed channel, I set 802.11g on my router, APSD off on the router.I set "Magic packet off, ad hoc QoS off, U-APSD off, fat channel off,incremental throughput off, HT mode off" on the card setting without success. Nothing chaned.The Hardware test doesn't detect any failure. If I go close to the router, it shows my network with full power connection and it connects to it. Then I go back to my bedroom (probably 3/4 meters far), it KEEPS the connection for 30/40min and It drops the connection and I can't reconnect to it anymore. It always worked perfectly in my room in these months (I bought it in March 2015), so the distance is not a problem, I'm 6/7m far from the router.In this case It shows my Network (Connected) and the neighbour network...and the other 20+ networks???
The only way I have is USB tethering with my Nexus 5.I tried the Wifi connection on Elementary Freya (Ubuntu linux based OS) and it shows 20+ networks available on the list. It has not connection problem with my Wifi, but sometimes it stops working, the webpages stop loading and I must reboot Wifi to reconnect to it (usually after 30/40min using it).What's the problem? Is my Wifi card broken?
I have been having this rendering issue for more than 3 months now and it persists after several OS re-installs. Resolving this problem is of extreme importance to me since many of the programs I rely on are affected. Reverting to an older Windows version is not an option for me.
Mocha Pro 4.1.3, IDA Pro 6.8, VLC Player & qBitTorrent (all versions)overall countless new and old programs affected
How to reproduce:
I can reproduce it successfully every timeMove the mouse from one sub-menu item that expands (SS1) to another (SS2) for a few times (usually around 10 is enough)It can also happen by interacting with any other UI elements in the program (although takes a few more clicks)
Mouse stops highlighting any buttons or menu items in the whole program - if you hover over anything that's supposed to have a hover action (like these menus) - nothing will happen, as if the mouse isn't thereClicks will also only work in less than 10% of all scenarios'Ghost' menus (only the shadows of the drop-down menus are visible) will as well start appearing from some hover actionsUI of the affected program suddenly becomes very slow, laggy and choppy when the bug is triggeredEvery program effected by the bug will not exit properly no matter what and the process will stay running forever, unless closed via task managerThe only solution is to restart the program
old versions of the same softwarenew versions of the same softwareall compatibility settingsall possible integrated and dedicated GPU drivers (from both laptop manufacturer websites & official websites)fully disabling Windows animationsre-installing my computer 3 times
My guess (as of 4th of January, 2016):
I think that the hovering effect of the mouse gets 'stuck' in one place (the place where the glitch initially occurs) and it stays there forever, despite the movement of the actual mouse.
I just recently updated. I then created a boot disk and performed a clean install. I use a Razor Black Widow Ultimate keyboard and a Logitech G9x laser mouse. I can reboot, I can shut down and restart and everything seems to work fine. But, after leaving the pc off all night and start in the morning I have no mouse or keyboard. This has happened Saturday morning, Sunday morning and yet again today. Fortunately, I have Acronis backup of my install, so when this happens I just re-image the hard drive and start searching for solutions again.
I have the latest Logitech mouse drivers and running Razor Synapse for keyboard software.
The latest thing I have done is disable fast boot but have not had it shut down long enough to see if it fixes the issue.
I did my upgrade quite shortly ago.Basically before that upgrade I had 2 connections at the same time: Local Area Connection with Ethernet and my PPPOE connection as advised by my provider.I've been using my PPPOE connection for years to sidestep some connection issues especially with uPnP, but now my internet only works through Ethernet and when I also start in my dial-up section the PPPOE connection, Windows 10 reports the "no internet connection" problem.After using "Troubleshoot problems" it resets the required parts and reports solving "Gateway is not available" problem.
1)I've already tried to reinstall all network drivers by deleting them first with device manager and through netcfg d in command line. 2)I don't know if it works but my BitDefender reports new adapters upon starting PPPOE: Teredo Tunneling and 6to4 3)I already tried to set Local Area Connection to Home and my other connection to Public and also all other possible permutations of settings
I just did a clean install on W10 and change my bios to UEFI (which it supports.) I'm having this intermittent problem with the Windows "Start" Button in the lower left. It just stops working - left clicking doesn't do anything, although right-clicking does. I just have the basics installed now.
Also, my Windows "Start" key on my keyboard stops working as well. I checked on a keyboard checker and the key itself is fine. I have to log out/back in to get it to work again.
I just got this laptop (Dell Vostro 3558 i3), a few days ago i upgraded to windows 10 using the media creation tool. After the upgrade, the touch pad works but I cannot scroll. I have tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them. When I upgraded there was nothing listed that went along the lines of synaptics in the control panel (uninstall).
I have tried installing the drivers of windows 10 and windows 7 from the dell website, what happens is quite weird, the installer says it installs without any errors but nothing happens, there is no synaptics program listed in the control panel.
Excuse me if I left any important details out but it is the first time that i have come across this issue and don't know what info I should give. I should also note that before I upgraded the touch pad worked along with the program of the drivers, now all I get is the usual mouse options and in device manager it recognizes it as a P/S2 mouse.
So after rebuilding my desktop, I boot everything up and do all the right things(drivers updated and whatnot). Before I do this though I make sure all of my USB plugins are in the exact same place they were in on the old machine(This probably doesn't mean anything but Im neurotic). I go to access my external and I can't find it! I go into the bios and it recognizes that there is a HD attached but no drive letter or anything. I try disk manager but all i see is my 2 tb on an empty letter area.
My issue is, I have a laptop with windows 10 home installed (all legit), I wanted to replace the laptop hdd with an ssd and put the original hdd in an enclosure to use as an external hdd.
This all went well put the hdd in the enclosure and went to boot windows 10 from the now externall hdd and end up getting an error saying unable_to_access_boot_media, I have had automatic repair come up but does not fix the issue.
The external hdd uses a USB 3.0 connections so as suggested in another post I turned the BootDeviceFlag to 0x14 to load the USB 3.0 drivers early but this has not fixed the issue either. Where to go from here?
I want to install windows 10 on external HDD.I have win8 right now,I'll do the reservation via win10 applet(when win8 is successfully installed).Alhough the only obstacle is that I have some of my personal data in external 1TB WD HDD and also I want to install the operating system.So the question will I have to erase my HDD completely for win8 installation or just I can install win8 along with my personal data on it.
I have been considering getting the Surface 3 to use in class as an electronic notepad of sorts, as well as for general consumption use. I also have an ultrabook running W10, and when I'm at home I like to work using an external monitor. Obviously I can't lug a monitor to the library, but I was hoping maybe the Surface 3 would be able to serve that purpose when I work there. I know that there are Android and iOS apps that turn a tablet into a monitor, but are there any that do the same for Windows? The app can be a Store app or for the desktop, no matter.
