Preferred Solution: Why aren't my saved contacts showing up in search on Lumia 630?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Why aren't some of the camera features showing at all in my Lumia 630?

The camera app or hardware?
I'd give the phone a soft reset first if you haven't already done so.

My brother needs me to send him pictures from his SD card with my phone. The issue is, when I put the SD card in the phone, the pictures rarely show up (if ever). It usually is a process of turning the phone on and off again, removing the memory card a billion times, etc.
When I go to photos, as said nothing shows up but the pictures that are already on my phone. When I go to "storage sense" to look at the memory card, the data which is taken up by the photos doesn't fall under the "photos" category, it falls under "other" which the phone describes as unrecognized content...
How can this be fixed? I already reset my phone, it didn't work.

Answer:On my WP 8.1 Lumia 520, why aren't photos on my SD card showing in photos app?

Is the SD card from another WP or from a camera?
If it's from another WP then make sure your phone is set to read from SD card in Storage Sense.
If it's from a camera or other device, that will be the issue. With WP can't read a SD card from another device.
Lastly, have you tried the Files app?

Most GIF files save properly from Firefox or IE and are opened without a problem with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (I'm using WinXP). However, some GIFs don't save or aren't opened properly. For example, I save this file here ( ), and the image viewing stops once the shoe hits the ground after hitting the bear's head. This happened on one of my other WinXP computers, as well.

What's the cause of this? A bad GIF file, a problem with Microsoft's products (again), or is it just not saving properly? My only guess is that the GIF is too long for the picture viewer and it slows down.

(Another example is an image that was this:, but it was from a different source (this example file works fine, but another did not).)

Hi, I have an issue with some computers. There is a Windows 2012 R2 Server sharing contacts to all Windows 8.1 computers. When I change the location of the "contacts" folder of every computer to the Windows Server shared contacts folder, some of them
drop the contacts folder "features" and become standard folders as shown below. 

As you can see there is no "new contact" button or any other contact related folder action.

Other computers work without any issues (they hold the contacts folder "features").

I can't find a way to customize the standard folder so it becomes a contact one. Can anyoene please help me?

So, this is something I've absolutely never come across, and a relatively new problem as of this month. It will not occur on a fresh restart, only after the system has been running for a few days. I can't even describe it well enough for a Google search to give me a proper result.

For example 1: I take an SD card out of my camera and into my computer. I open up the source and destination folders and drag-move the files from the SD card to the computer. The system runs the move dialogue, may take a minute, depending on size, the source file is deleted, the destination file shows up in the folder all fine and dandy, successful move.

If I try to open the moved picture, error, (can't recall the error, but basically the file can't be read). I refresh the folder, file is gone. I go back to the source, file is also gone. I run recovery software on the destination, the file was never, ever there, to begin with. It's like it pretended to copy the file, but didn't actually write any information to the disk.

Example 2:
I'm in Firefox. I see an image I want to save to my computer. Save As, it downloads, it shows up in the downloaded tab. I browse to the folder in Windows Explorer, file isn't there. I try to save the image, again, Firefox prompts me that the file already exists. Using Firefox's Save As dialogue, I attempt to open the file. Gives me the same error, (something like File cannot be read).

I use a Logitech M310 wireless mouse on my Win 7 computer, and I prefer a fast speed. So I typically right click on my desktop and then go to the Personalize screen. From there I click on Change Mouse Pointers, Pointer Options, and then I select a fast pointer speed.

But each time I restart my computer, my fast pointer speed is lost and I'm back to where it started at medium speed.

How can I get my mouse settings to save? My settings for Desktop Background and Screen Saver are saved, but not my mouse pointer speed. Thanks in advance.......

Answer:Wireless Mouse Settings Aren't Saved in Restart

Have you installed the Logitech mouse software, if not, go to the Logitech website & find the M310 mouse & locate the software download for it making sure you have either the 32 bit or 64 bit version that your Windows 7 is. Download it & then install it.

This will provide you with a program that you can use to customise your mouse settings.

And still, they are on another computer. I can't figure what the **** is this shit. I've search on google for a long time and I haven't found any similar problems as mine.

So, here's the situation : I do have two computers who had run WLM 2011 beta version. On of them, my laptop, wasn't able to connect at all, I wierd error code showed up. This error code was related to the internet explorer settings, wich I tried to change, but without any result.

Right now, the final version of WLM 2011 is installed, both seams to working, except then... I've just figured out that no contacts are online on my laptop and when I try to send a message to one of them, the following error is printed : The following message could not be delivered to all recipients: My message. On the other machine, everything is cool, I can talk to all my contacts, even my facebook contacts, that's cool.

Please see 1 and 2 dot png to see what it does exactly. On each pictures, we see in our left the WLM from one of my computer, where it's working. On our right, it is the version installed on my laptop, wich doesn't work. As you can see, I STILL can receive messages from my contacts, but I can't send them a message or see them online on my laptop.

Well guys, thank for the upcoming help!

Oh BTW, as you can see, I'm a french from Quebec, if there's something you don't understand, please let me know!

Answer:My contacts aren't online (WLM 2011)

Try uninstalling WLM 2011 and then clean up the registry, if you can - clean hands. Then install again.
This usually happens when there was Beta 1.

When I click on an e-mail attachment, the download window opens, and the progress bar completes, but, the nothing opens.

Similaraly, when I try to press 'run' in the download window for install functions, the progress bar moves, but, nothing happens. For example, I was trying to download Mozilla, but, when pressing run, it bar progresses, but then, nothing.

This is weird (and maybe it will tell you want you need to know to answer), when I press SAVE on the download screen instead of run, and I specify a folder location and name, the progress bar progresses, but then, THE FILE IS NOT IN THE DIRECTORY???

OK, I have a client running Outlook 2003. The Suggest Names While Completing To isn't working (yes, it's checked) and I'm pretty sure it's because there are no entries in the Outlook Address Book.

I hard/ master reset my Lumia 1020 Windows 8.1 phone because it was running a bit buggy.
I have done this on previous occasions, with no ill effects. As soon as I sign in my Microsoft account, Facebook account, email accounts, etc., my contacts have synced with Facebook and all is as it was before the reset.
This time, with very few exceptions, my contacts are not syncing with my Facebook contacts...and it seems 'buggy' when I try to link. The Facebook profile photos are not showing up with my contacts.
At first I chalked it up to the possibility that it just needed time to sync, but in past resets, this was accomplished within the space of 4-6 hours or so. It's been 18 hours since my reset, and it has only registered/synced only about 20 of 800 contacts.
Any idea what may be going on?

Answer:Why aren't my contacts repopulating/syncing with Facebook after Master Reset?

Go into the Facebook app and go in settings. there you can select connect with phone.
There is also the sync status. I just found out as well that they are not even listed under "emails+accounts" anymore.
It is just the way Microsoft doesn't want to centralize the system anymore but wants you to go everywhere else. bloody hate the way all the good things in Windows Phone ends up being destroyed to be just like android and iOS

Hello! First post here for me. Seems like a good forum/community.

After replacing the motherboard/CPU and reinstalling Windows 7, my disks aren't showing up. See screenshots for more details:

The two dark green partitions on the two 2TB disks are a software raid setup in my previous installation of Windows 7, using the same Disk Management window you see in the screenshot. For whatever reason this new install of windows is having problems with my hard drives. It does however see the main partition on the first 2TB disk but none on the second 2TB disk. I can right click on the partitions on the disks or the disks themselves and 'Reactivate' it but that has no effect.

Something else - Disk 0 had the same problem which I tried to solve by deleting a smaller (unused) partition of the two partitions that were on there. To my annoyance both partitions got deleted.
Is there a simple way to recover the lost partition on this drive?

I don't dare delete either of the two software raid partitions fearing that it might delete a much bigger partition. This will be the last time I'll be using the partition management software that's build into windows...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:HDD's aren't showing up after a re-install of Win7

Welcome to Sevenforums! Sorry help for your problem has been slow. Hopefully someone with raid experience will come along.

Not knowing anything about your raid setup, should the missing drives have a drive letter?

My advice is to download Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition. Look on the left side of the page for Bootable CD and burn a CD to boot your PC. Partition Wizard is close to 100% reliable. It has tools to explore your partitions and can do things Disk Management can't.

You might have problems in the future having the System Reserved partition on Disk 3.

Well, i upgraded to win 10 then did a clean install.

Everything works great, except Cortana's interests. Whenever i click on the taskbar i get "Go ahead and tell me to do something. Interests aren't available at the moment." All the voice commands work great though, i can tell her to open apps, search, check weather etc.

I tried disabling Cortana and then deleting everything from the cloud and turning interests on and off in various combinations in the notebook.

It's funny because if i disable Cortana, i get the Bing feed instantly.

Anyone else have this?

Answer:Cortana interests aren't showing

I have the same on my other user accounts (mine seems ok). Cortina doesn't seem to think I have an Internet connection but I do. If I leave the logon alone for twenty mins or more it will often suddenly work. The users can happily use internet explorer and edge during this time but anything MS login related is giving grief. Did you ever fix this?

Is it possible, without scripting in VBA, to sort Outlook 2003 contacts by last saved/edited date? I need to import contacts to my cell phone, which has a primitive mechanism that requires me to manually synchronize with Outlook. This sorting ability would help determine which entries have changed since the last time I updated my phone.

Answer:Sort Outlook 2003 contacts by last saved date?

Welcome to the forum.

just got lumia 630, the following apps wont install( facebook, battery saver, music, calendar, games, one drive, motion data, device hub and skype) saying attention required and when i click try again it loads up to a certain percentage then stops...and the whole cycle continues.
this has been on for two days.

Answer:Why aren't apps installing on my Lumia 630?

Are these updates or new installations? I would cancel each download, restart the device, check for updates and initiate the downloads again. This usually fixes said issue.

how come most apps arent "compatible" with my lumia 520? i got a windows phone because i wanted a change from android. big mistake. the 520 lacks a lot of things and so does some of the other models. anyway. i wanted apps like subway surfers and polyvore and wattpad but they arent "compatible" with my phone. ive had an android that was a bit smaller than my 520 and was still able to run these apps. do i need an sd card?

Answer:Why aren't some apps compatible for Lumia 520?

In some cases it's lack of hardware, others it's lack of memory (requiring 1GB). Since the 520 is the absolute entry level model, you're not going to get very many fancy higher end features.
In the case of Subway Surfer though, the latest Paris update was meant to bring support to 512MB devices such as the 520.
An SD card won't give you extra memory, but you will have more storage space.

Answer:Why are my Lumia 925 headphones saying they are connected but they aren't?

If a factory reset did not solve the issue it is hardware, not software... You did say reset? Not just reboot - like power down and power back on?
Inspect the port and make sure nothing is stuck in there. Seek qualified repair.

I am using Lumia 535. Whenever I try to copy any movie file from my computer to the phone, the copying gets hanged. Then, if a I check my phone, it says Low Storage, besides having loads of memory. Yesterday, I tried olit again after updation, copying got completed but after that when I tried deleting my cache memory using app, same problen occured again. It always need restart and then scanning of sd card. Please suggest something.

Answer:Why aren't I able to send movies to my Lumia 535?

If your phone keeps trying to scan your SD Card each time you restart your phone, then you may also want to scan your SD Card using your PC - it's highly probable that your SD Card has already started to fail.
If your PC does find some corrupt sectors in your SD Card, then there most likely is nothing you can do to fix it (since most SD Cards are designed to write-protect themselves as soon as they start to fail to protect the data). You may copy your files from your SD Card to your PC, buy a new SD Card and the copy the files to your new SD Card.
Take note, however, that you can't simply copy your app data from your old SD Card to your new SD Card. You will have to move all your apps in your SD Card to your phone, and then move all individually them to your new SD Card.
On a side note, you may want to check the file size of the movies you're trying to copy - file sizes greater than 4GB usually can't be copied to an SD Card due to the format it is in when formatted by the phone.

I have a problem with the preview display on image files where some will show an image preview and others will show an icon.
This error does not happen systematically. When I open a folder with images in it some preview the image while others don?t. When I next reopen the same folder the same thing happens but with different files being affected.
Similarly, when I try to refresh the file contents, all of the file previews flicker with the image preview for an instant before reverting to an icon.
I have read many instances of this same issue happening to other people over the last few years but my problems have only been extant for the last few weeks.

I plugged my usual headphones into the audio jack and it was recognized, saying "You just plugged a device into the audio jack", but when I went to go listen to music, like I usually do, I hear nothing. I turned the volume all the way up and still hear nothing. I went into the Playback Devices tab for the audio and only the speakers icon shows up. No headphones. I unplugged and replugged the headphones in and still get nothing, even after the computer recognizes that there is something connected to the audio jack. I plugged the headphones into my MP3 player and it works. So, there's nothing wrong with the headphones. The computer speakers work, it's just the headphone jack that is giving me problems by not working. I've never had any issues with the audio jack before this. Please advise. Thanks!

Hey so the story is, it was time for an upgrade and I got a barebundle package from Novatech. I installed windows 7 on a brand new hard drive and then afterwards I plugged in my 2 old sata hard drives which were bought at Novatech and when they came with that computer like 3 or 4 years ago they came as two 250gig hard drives merged together.

They are showing up in my computer like this:

Then I googled the problem and I came to this forum and somebody had a similar but not the same problem, I thought to cut time I'd show you what my Disk Management looks like:

Does anybody know how I can access those two merged hard drives? Would be so amazing seeing as I have years of photography, games and work on them

Answer:New computer and my old hard drives aren't showing up.

Bootup using a live linux distro and check if the data in the hard drives shows up or not. If it does then it is an issue with windows 7, else probably the sectors are corrupt which means there is no possible bay (except opening the hard disk and using a magnetic data reader), which means you have to format your hard disk.

The speakers are working perfectly fine but there is no sound coming through the headphones. Noticed this problem couple of days ago. Have tried basic troubleshooting - Different Headphones, Tested Headphones on other devices etc. Is there an issue due to some update or is it a hardware thing?

Answer:Why aren't my Headphones working with my Lumia 1520?

First, try restarting the phone. It could be a glitch in the software. After restarting, start playing music or whatever. Plug in your headphones then tap the volume up or down to pull up the volume control at the top of the screen. Make sure it says Headphones at the top of the screen, like my screenshot below. And of course, that the volume isn't at zero.

It's me again!
I managed to re-install Vista (my product key worked fine) and salvage all of my documents, BUT, I have another problem.

Before I did the whole Windows 7 thing I had an 80gig secondary hard drive. When I decided to do the 7 thing I took that one out and replaced it with a 120GB Now that I'm all set again I reinstalled it, but I can't access it!

I checked it out in Disc Management and it says the drive is offline; it also has a little red and white arrow gif next to the drive. I'm actually able to access a 6gig partition on the drive, but the main part is what I can't get into.

I'm hoping you can shed some light or at least help me find away to retrieve the stuff on that drive. This one is really important to me too because the whole of my business is on that drive, it'd be pretty devestating if it was lost.

Hello there.
Some days ago my computer started to act wierd. Something is messing with the mouse and the touchpad of my laptop. 
The symptoms: The mouse pointer moves as it should but the left click is not working in some cases. The cursor wont change to "selection cursor" and sometimes i cant close or minimize my open windows. The close or minimize buttons wont change color as i hover over them and i cannot click them. Also, other buttons(for example installation buttons "next" and "finish" on the installation screen) will not work when clicked on. 
 Sometimes the cursor will go into selection mode and will highlight everything and tries to drag it. At this point I can not use anything to do with the mouse, except moving the cursor. The left click is not working, the right click is not working, the scrolling wheel is not working and so on. 
 Now, when I am on the internet, lets say youtube, then sometimes the page will go back to previous just randomly. When I play videos on the internet, the videos rapidly play and puse and play and pause and its going on until the "surge" ends.
I unistalled and reinstalled all the mouse and touchpad drivers. This fixed the problem for a day or so, but then it all started again.

So I recently got a second monitor so I can work with two screens at once. As I kind of expected, I had to calibrate the monitors so their colors, brightness and all everything else match each other. But how much I may try, I can't manage to calibrate them properly. Worse, both monitors seem to be calibrated from tests, yet they still don't match.

It's hard to explain what the differences are, so I included pictures of them in the attachments. Take in mind that they're photo's from my phone, since screenshots obviously wouldn't work.

The first one, monitorDifference_blackgrayOnSteam.jpg, is made by placing the steam client over the two screens. The left side is from the new monitor, which seems to be more dark green, and the right side is the old monitor, which seems to be more light grey.

The second one are monitorDifference_foxOld.jpg (old screen) and monitorDifference_foxNew.jpg (new screen), which are from with a wallpaper. The old one seems to be more dull and brighter while the new one seems to be more colorful/warmer (?) and darker.

Just for the sake of having enough information, the old monitor is an Asus VH222H which I have for almost two years, and the new one is a LG Flatron IPS224, which is just a few days old.

These differences aren't everywhere or not as noticeable, but there are plenty things like the above two examples where the differences are big and annoying. So the question is, how can I fix this difference problem and make the monitors match properly... Read more

Answer:Dual monitors aren't showing the same colors/display

Are you using the sRGB colour profiles on both monitors?

It could be simply down to the age of the monitors - you probably didn't notice the changes with your old one until you hooked up your new one along side it. You might need to set the colour/brightness/contrast/temperature settings individually on one or both monitors to compensate for this.

We have a very irritating problem. One of our users has IE10 installed on her Windows 7 laptop. When she tries to download any installer program e.g. WinRAR, Firefox etc., she receives the dropdown bar in IE. She right-clicks the bar and selects download this file and saves it to her desktop. It looks like it downloads successfully, but when she looks at her desktop, the downloaded executable isn't there. This happens when she tries to save the file to other folders as well. We tried disabling her antivirus program to see if that resolves the problem and it doesn't.

Does anyone know how to resolve this crazy issue??


Answer:Downloaded Internet Programs Aren't Showing Up Anywhere on Hard Drive

Normally the default download location is the User's Downloads folder and remain there until changed in Options of the Download Manager, available by clicking on the IE Gear icon to access Tools>View Downloads.

Otherwise to have a file downloaded to Desktop would require choosing Save As in the individual Download dialogue popup.
