Lack of browser support for Windows 7 64 bit?

Question: Lack of browser support for Windows 7 64 bit?

Right after i installed the 64 bit version, i assumed that chrome already had such a version released, but after a closer inspection i realised it was still a 32 bit one. After looking further into the matter i found out Google only released it for Linux users, which is beyong my reasoning.

After that, i tried firefox, which apparently had a 64 bit version available, yet it asked for no apparent reason for me to give my administrator name and pass, which were incorrect according to the installer, and it exited. It eventually crossed my mind to right click and select 'run as admin' and it worked fine.

Also, i have noticed the built in IE browser is 32 bit aswell, which seems odd.

On top of all those, is the information that adobe flash player does not support 64 bit browsers true? EDIT: i tried using the 64 bit version of firefox to browse youtube, but it keeps saying i need an additional plugin, i install the adobe plugin, yet it keeps giving me the same error, which to my mind means adobe does not support 64 bit yet?

Preferred Solution: Lack of browser support for Windows 7 64 bit?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Lack of browser support for Windows 7 64 bit?

Hi as of yet I have not seen any real support for the 64 bit browsing, so for the time being you will have to live with the 32bit unless someone else knows of a answer

I bought a PC from Watford Electronics last July, and emailed them to ask about a problem with Windows XP. No reply, so I emailed Microsoft in the USA and they replied: ?Thank you for contacting Microsoft Customer Service. If you are using Windows XP and it was purchased outside of North America, your best resource for assistance is the Microsoft subsidiary in United Kingdom. There are significant programming differences between North American and localized versions of software. You will be best assisted by the subsidiary that specializes in your specific version.?So I emailed Microsoft UK, and their response was that because the software is OEM (original equipment manufacturer) then support is provided by the manufacturer.Two more emails to Watford Electronics, with no response. I have just found the email address for the managing director, Shiraz Jessa, so will try him.

I have a household with Two Dell desktops and Three laptops the oldest laptop being a 37 month old N5110.  Kids in school you know the drill.  Of course the oldest is mine, the purchaser, the N5110, After reading about Dell not supporting this product for Windows 10 software update. I pulled my old Sony from the retired computer pile in my home office, and with a few auto updates I got a reservation for Windows 10,  So this past week I decided that if Dell drops the N5110 upgrade path I'm dropping Dell from my approved vendor list, Designating Dell to be just another Apple, stranding its customers by not providing a migration path.  The reasoning behind the Intel / Microsoft PC compared to alternatives in the 80;s was the future upgrades.  I have the Intel CPU & MS O/S but I guess I screwed up by purchasing Dells.
Oh I even tried the BIOS fix,  I already have that version installed.  I guess I just wait to see what Dell does after reading N5110 post I'm afraid that I'll have to select another Vendor, I did it to Apple in the 80's, But I'll stay with Windows and find another preferred hardware vendor if they strand this laptop with no future.  I think it is funny that someone defined the laptop lifecycle at three years at dell. Plus I use Dells in the office.   

Answer:N5110 Windows 10 upgrade and lack of Dell support

I have a similar problem.  The only laptop i have is N5110 Inspiron. It was one of the best configurations of that time. 
I am very much unhappy about the BIOS compatibility issue which stops me upgrading to windows 10. 
I blame both Microsoft and Dell for this. Now its like none of them wants to take up the responsibility to provide a fix. If this has to be the trend in future it will become a norm to washout devices after every 3 years. Which is not value for money. 
I hope dell comes up with a upgrade to BIOS or they reachout to Microsoft to fix the issue and upgrade on what ever is existing. I know its not a joke  cause every hour spent writing that code for a 1 person would cost too much of money.But again its  their duty.

I tried Windows 10 but first, I could not download my CD music to my MP3 player. Next I tried it with my Photoshop Elements and Photoshop CS5. It warned me not all components are supported.

As a photographer, I rely on Photoshop. Windows really messed up with this so called "up grade" You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig!

I have always been against Apple but this is the best Microsoft can do I am changing. There is no customer support live, just links to self help. My guess is unless they make some very quick changes, their customer base will drop considerably. Sell your Microsoft stocks!

Answer:Windows 10 - poor customer support and lack of media player

Lack of What? Depends on which edition you tried upgrading to! Oh Welcome to the Ten Forums by the way! Travenston0

Upon looking over Windows 8 a few years back and finding WMPlayer was gone from the Home version while I would likely if then going for 8(ha ha ha ha hardy har har no way hose') would have had to download WMP 13 separately as I have always set WMP since it was first seen only as a separate download until Vista came along as the default player. 8 Pro and later however have the newer versions plus 10 now sees a Windows DVD Player if you look more closely at the Start>All Apps!

The Pro editions of 8, 8.1, and now 10 have WMP as well as 10 now seeing a separate dvd player since WMP no longer supportd dvd or video playback with MS saying there are already too many media players?! So this is what you get like it or not!

So I am sitting here on my MacBook Pro which in my opinion does not have any wireless issues whatsoever, it works. I still own this ThinkPad with a garbage wireless card, and I feasted my eyes on an Intel 7260 but lo and behold, it isn't on the whitelist! Scouring eBay and Amazon I did find a FRU, but would the number of that FRU be the same on the Hardware list? Lets see, well I cannot even find it. All I get are Page Not Found errors which to me is a hilarious joke of Lenovo's support. What does this mean for me? Is my X230 at a very very unnecessary end of life? Should I like, fork out 1400 for an "upgraded" model that probably won't fix most of my problems? My problems is money and saving money. Should i now look elsewhere? No, because I'd rather keep my money to actually FIX my current laptop's problems (the N2200 is a garbage card and would like to replace it with something that's up to date to todays technology but that isn't happening by the sounds of it) I am frustrated with my current laptop's problems and it's having a large effect on my studies. And possibly you can also lose customers by inadequate non-existent support and failure to give us the freedom to actually let us upgrade for those who do. For those who don't, more like.

Question: Lack of HP Support

I have had so much stress after buying a brand new HP 250 G4 notebook! I've only had it a couple of months but since the start there have been browser and sound issues. Wish I'd got my  money back! I've spent hours on the phone to many HP customer support reps who have tried to fix the issues. I've even had my notebook sent off for repairs. When it was returned to me the sound issues had not been resolved despite the speakers having been replaced. I called HP again who then got me to install new drives. Issue still not fixed. My case has been kept open and I've not heard from any HP rep for a week. I know I'll have to call them! I'm fed-up and wouldn't recomment HP to anyone! Anyone else have any advice on how to get some decent support. My issue has been going on for two months! I'm based in the UK!

Answer:Lack of HP Support

@Regent

 

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.

I am returning the Dell described below. Decided to do that on or about Sept.23 and I began applying to Dell for their RMA number. The timing of my ordering and then receiving the Dell was an almost impossible time. I am blessed with the C.O.P.D. disease and a head cold began to make it's presence known---and how it did!! Still have it and you never want the combination of these two "killers" to hit you together. I began to have my anxiety depleted when I could not get in touch with Dell; or rather no contact with any sympathetic soul and in fact, it was pretty much just the opposite. Support in India is strictly for no one. Well, they got my Scotch/Irish anger burning and I didn't give up---it was like not being able to contact anyone at Dell Support. I really and truly felt helpless; it was like no one was home.
Dell kept saying that I had 21 days to return the computer and I had among the several items in the computer box this one page of printed info with Dell logo in several places so I scanned it and sent it attached to one of my many emails to anyone at Dell I could find a name for. Today, I got my answer. Who ever approved it said he(?) was making an exception and gave his approval. Don't really see how an exception was made when the "letter" I scanned and sent to them clearly said 30 days and in which I was well within the boundary.

I'm curious who has had enough problems with the lack of 64 bit software support that they are considering going with the 32 bit version when Windows 7 is released in the Fall.

Personally, the lack of a Cisco VPN client, some poor software support, and a few driver issues, is really making me reconsider going with 64. Then again, I have not tried out the XP virtualization.

Answer:64 bit software support (or lack of)

Not me. I've got all the driver support I need to productively use x64. The only shortfall I see, for me, is the last of Flash for 64-bit. For that I just use 32-bit Firefox.

Ever since I got my new pc I have been attempting to contact MS Support in the UK to answer a very simple problem.

I bought Windows Media Center from Arvato GmbH in Germany. Their email address is none functional. When I bought it it fitted into the pc great, then my pc broke.

I have a new pc and nobody seems to want to help. I called the UK support number to be told that the number has changed to a 'less expensive' number - so I dialed that. After the usual robitic responses I actually reached a human being, although speaking a barely distinguishable accent. I told her the full history. 'Now let me get this straight, you have Windows 8.1'? 'Yes' I said 'but the problem is Media Center product key not working in Add Features in 8.1 - I have paid for a product that I cannot download.'

*click* nobody on line

After several attempts to call them back, I got a phone ringing somewhere, and ringing, and ringing - you get the picture? Then another robot told me there is an error *click*

After another few attempts I gave up.

If Apple Macs were not so damn expensive I would stick MS where the sun does not shine.

Edit: Wow! finally got to 'speak' to MS via social media software. Gave them the details, we shall see ........

I have only owned the laptop since January, and the overheating started in April/May, i initially thought it was a 64-bit driver problem.  After sending it to the depot, they claim the following 1 - They claimed something had been spilled on the laptop, voiding the warranty2 - They were going to charge me $950 to repair3 - For my money they would not send back the replaced parts so I could verify what had happened I wanted the parts back so I could  a) see if a spill had occurred b) see if someone at a work site had sabotaged it. They sent my laptop back withyout answering any of my questions.  Starting to wonder if the warranty is worth diddly. Model is 4062-4JU.

Hey Lenovo team, The P50 website for Lenovo India ( http://shopap.lenovo.com/in/en/laptops/thinkpad/p-series/p50/ ) does not have a configurator & online purchase platform unlike the US website ( http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/p-series/p50/ ). I emailed TheDoStore support ([email protected]), requesting information on the configuration options available in India and got the following response: "... unfortunately we don't have an expert who would be able to respond to you. We would like you to please call 1800 3000 9991 where an expert will be handle your query and give you the best possible advice.  ..."  - Not the most encouraging of emails. And the 'expert' team at 1800 3000 9991 was not very competant. They could confirm only the configuration that was available in stock and could not even confirm if other options (see below) were either out-of-stock or not-launched/not-available in India. Could somebody help me out with the following?Processor: Are the i7-6820HQ & Xeon E3-1505M options available?Display: Is the 4k IPS non-touch available?Storage options?And what are the buying options for the P50?Is 1800 3000 9991 really the only option? Or are there other resellers? Is it expected to be listed elsewhere online, where I can see and verify the configuration, rather than just trust an 'expert' over a phone call?

In May of 2011, I purchased a ThinkPad for my son to take to college.  With it, we paid extra for a warranty that we thought would ensure that he would be taken care of, if any problems with the computer came up.  In November, the computer ceased working and after three weeks of calling and waiting (and much frustration), a technician finally came out and made a repair.  Unfortunately, after one day, the computer once again ceased to work.  This time, it was not even possible to run the diagnostics because the computer would not even boot up.  Again, I placed a phone call to the customer support number, hoping to have a resolution before finals started.  A case number was assigned and I was given the name of the "Escalation Specialist" who I was told would be calling me in 24-48 hours. While I tried to be patient, there was no call and so after almost a week, I tried calling the Escalation Specialist.  Instead of reaching him, I was greeted with a message that his voice mailbox was full, so I could not leave a message.  The recording said that I could be transferred to an operator if I pressed the # sign, but when I did that, I was told that this was not an option available to me.  When I called customer support/service back to let them know this, I was told that I should stop calling because each time I called, I was being moved down in the list of people to receive return calls.   Wow!  is this what customer service has...

So with the new round of games coming out I decided it was time to add another Radeon HD 5770 to my system so I could rock some massively overclocked dual GPU goodness.


Well think again! After screwing with this system for about four weeks I have determined that CrossfireX is bogus and I should have just attempted to sell my original 5770 and buy a better single card.



I'm currently on a clean (SUPER CLEAN) install of amd_catalyst_11.5b_hotfix_8.85.6rc5_win7_may25 drivers and using the latest amd_catalyst_11.5_cap3_may26_110525 application profiles. Windows 7 Ultimate x64, everything up to date. MSI Afterburner used for overclocking profiles.. etc.




The new games I was wanting to max for their splendid eye candy:


Crysis 2 - will run in Crossfire mode with little scaling evident, although if any AA is enabled there are all kinds of screwy visual defects going on. So in the end it runs better with Crossfire disabled and graphic options set to medium.


Need for Speed Shift 2 Unleashed - This game will run fine with Crossfire enabled, however only GPU #2 is being used, so 0% scaling. Upon further investigation the use of both GPUs was disabled via ATI's application profiles shortly after the game was released due to major problems with it.


Total War Shogun 2 - Now this game is one that is supposed to scale well when running in Crossfire mode. WRONG, because upon launch the entire system will freeze as soon as the intro movie starts... Read more

I'm trying to open a port so I can set up my FTP. I've tried port forwarding, port triggering, etc. and no one can ping me. I set up the port as 21 and, using the router's IP address, which isn't my dynamic IP address from the ISP, I'm so firewalled I can't get out.

I did go to whatismyip.com and got a number, which I pinged and got results on all four packets. When I run IPWatch, I get the router's 192.168._._ number.

BTW....this is a Dell 2350 Broadband Router -- brand new.

The wonderful thing is that Dell Support WON'T support Advanced settings -- they DON'T KNOW HOW! However, for $40, they will trnasfer me to a technician who can help me. Figure that one out. For a $70 router, I can't even get support to set it up. I'm dealing with tech support in India, so have the language problem and don't feel I should have to pay for something that the salesman assured me I could do (which was to be able to set up an FTP).

Answer:Dell Broadband 2350 Router & lack of Support

You don't need to worry about quoting the "192.168._._ number" - everyone on the planet using NAT uses that (well nearly everyone!). It's the public dynamic IP address you may want to withhold from the rest of us!

For port-forwarding you need to set-up in the router port-forwarding to the LAN IP address of the PC on which your Titan server is operating NOT the IP address of the router. Your external user tries to FTP to your public IP address, that hits the router and the router forwards as per its config to the device on your LAN running your server: that way the external user gets through the firewall without knowing the internals of your LAN. If you have a dynamic public IP address that's obviously going to change from time to time (it does what its says on the box! - it's dynamic) which can make access for external users difficult -- so you may want to look into a Dynamic DNS service (such as offered free at www.dyndns.org or www.no-ip.com) where you can get a domain name and your external users use that rather than an IP address and the DynDNS service keeps the domain name in line with the changing public IP address.

On the ping question: it may be that the router is configured to not respond to pings from the internet - some/many routers have this facility (for security reasons) and it is often the default but I do not know the model in question.

Does anyone have an email address that will put me in contact with someone in Canada? I spent three hours trying to get help that wasn't through the telephone, telling half a dozen people that I couldn't use the phone to get help. Technical support won't chat with people in Canada and I just jumped through a dozen hoops, only to end up in the same place. If anyone could please offer any kind of advice that would be greatly appreicated. Thank you.

NEVER buy a Lenovo  I just bought a brand new Flex laptop from the Microsoft Store.  A MAJOR PROBLEM for those who use the touchpad.  It doesn't allow the user to turn off the drag in the mouse buttons (only).  When I use the touch pad, i move the cursor (for example to select a radial button).  However when I go to click on the left or right mouse buttons on the touch pad it's so sensitive to movement that it moves the curosor away from the radial button. There should be a way to map the touch pad.  Lenovo blames the software and the touchpad company.  Yet they chose this touchpad.  I need support from one company.  They sent me to talk with the touchpad company.  Sorry.  It's your Laptop Lenovo.  To add to Lenovo's problem, their support is in India and it is almost impossible to understand the support person or their supervisor.

The are problems with Intel SSD 530 and ThinkPad W520. Many people, including me, are complaining about startup problems ... see this thread also: https://communities.intel.com/thread/44258One month ago I bought an Intel SSD 530 240GB to replace the stock HDD of my ThinkPad W520 (4270CTO). When I cold-start the laptop everything is fine, but when I restart it from Windows 7 or even CTRL-ALT-DEL, the drive is not found. Both SSD and W520 has the latest firmware/BIOS.I had no problems with Intel SSD 335 240GB; Windows starts and restart without problem, but with the Intel 530 it fails when I do restart, the BIOS does not find it after a normal reset. I think BIOS implementation for W520 does not support the newer ATA feature called "Device Initiated Power Management (DIPM) for Software Setting Preservation (SSP)". There is a BIOS update for W530 but not for W520.Should I assume Intel SSD 530 is and will remain incompatible with ThinkPad W520 or wait for a BIOS update?





W520 | i7-2720QM | NV Quadro 2000M

Answer:Intel SSD 530 startup problems on ThinkPad W520 - Bug in SSD or lack of BIOS support?

I am also seeing the exact same issue. I have a ThinkPad W520 and a Corsair Force GS using a Sandforce 2200 series controller. According to the Intel SSD thread, there is some incompatibility between that controller and Intel QM77-chips which is causing the issue. The symptoms for my laptop are the same. SSD is always recognized on cold boot, but effectively never on warm boot / restart. Will we get a BIOS update that fixes this? I have dual boot configuration with both windows 8 and windows 7. The issue is happening regardless of what OS I issue the restart from.

Unless Microsoft plans to roll out a day one update to include browser extension support for Edge & have a few extensions available right away, I think Microsoft's new Edge browser will fail to win any users back. For me personally, it's been tough to test Microsoft Edge even though performance wise its been pretty pleasant, but as a long time user of FireFox with AdBlock Plus + YouTube AdBlocker, I forgot how many advertisements were tossed at us on web sites these days (sorry WC, you're no exception).
Point is, I don't see many users willing to stick around to give the new browser a chance with no way to ditch common annoyances or improve and personalize their browsing experience through extensions.

Answer:Mistake to RTM Windows 10 without Edge browser extension support

Ad blockers are a must. When you're used to using a browser with one you just cant fathom going back. I know whenever I use someone else's laptop and they don't have it on it's really dreadful using it. Closing popups and ads are annoying.

Answer:Windows ME. stability or lack of

ME was the redheaded step child of Windows. It was a rushed out OS that left developers scrambling to produce compatible software and then it was overlapped by the push for windows 2000. ME was a fart in the wind my man. Developers didn't have enough time to mature software for it nor drivers and I really don't think companies are putting a whole lot into supporting ME drivers etc. it's just one of those OS's that fell flat on it's face before it got out the door.

I've had my Dell Venue 8 Pro since September. Two of the first games I normally download are Temple Run and Temple Run 2.
When I set up my tablet I went straight to the Windows app store app to download Temple Run. Only to find it's not available.
This isn't not the only game that is not available. Games like Subway Surfers and The Official Tetris aren't there either. I have noticed there's a lot of clones of Floppy Bird.
Bizarrely there are game guides and cheat apps for Temple Run 2 and Subway Surfers, but the games themselves are not available.
I feel let down by the lack of quality games. I emailed Imangi Studios and asked them if they have plans to bring Temple Run and Temple Run 2 to the Windows app store they said they haven't got plans to release them.
I've tried android emulators but not been able run Temple Run successfully.
Can't understand why Imangi Studios won't port Temple Run or 2, as It's available on most WP8 phones.
Maybe it's the Windows architecture on W8 tablets are different to WP8 Unlike iOS and Android.
Any ideas how I can play both the Temple Run games. I do know that the Temple Run Brave & Oz are both available but they're both pay apps.

Answer:Lack of big name games in the Windows app store?

Ah the joys of a Windows tablet. The app gap. Nothing that can be done except what you already did - contact the vendor and say "I am a Windows tablet user and I'm disappointed that I can't run your app". If enough people do that they may write one.
And the app store is a mess - bloated with rip-off and garbage apps like the game guides and cheat apps you've found.
I feel your pain, we all do. There is a lot of cool stuff like Asphalt 8, Hungry Shark Evolution, and my favorite Pinball FX2, but it can be tough to find with all the crap out there. Windows Phone has a much better, but still somewhat lacking, app experience. Hopefully Windows 10 will take off like Windows 8.1 should have and the app gap will start to close.
There are some good runner apps - check the reviews on this site home page.

Hi, and apologies straight away because I'm very non-technical as this is almost certainly a very dumb question.

I bought a new Sony Vaio laptop from at Christmas from Play.com, which came with no Windows discs. The setup instructions took me through a process of creating what I imagine are backup/recovery discs if I have a problem ... which I haven't.

I'm posting because:
1. I am starting to take more interest in making sure it's protected, backed up etc, and also in knowing what to do it things go wrong. I've seen that the 'Ultimate Boot CD' utility requires a Windows CD to build itself, so what does someone in my position do if I want to use it?
2. I am wondering how I prove I have a legit copy of Windows, for example if I decide to sell the laptop

Are there any other issues which I may encounter?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Lack of Windows discs with new computer

1. As far as I understand, most VAIO doesn't come with windows disks because Sony pre-installed Windows on your machine, just as other OEM's, i.e. Dell. Dell did or still do ? supply their own re-installation disks.

VAIO has a recovery utility built in. For recovery you will need to create disks yourself.

Here's a link to Sony's support website: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/contact-download.pl?

and here's a link on how to create disks. http://www.ehow.com/how_4558680_create-restore-disc-sony-vaio.html

2. I don't know the answer to that question. Perhaps someone else can answer that or you can contact Sony.

Yes, I like to try something new/better/different. I installed the CP/M mod in my TRS 80 Model III to see what it was all about. Turns out it added lots of capabilities. It wasn't very nice to have to reinitialize the floppy drives every time you changed a disk. Similarly there are some things in Window 8 that won't be as convenient as they were in Windows 7 or even XP.

Reading many of the complaints on Forum postings I look for responses that tell me the new way to do things and usually find it may be even better than the old way. Not always of course. "Windows 8 Secrets" just released has been a great help in understanding the improvements in desktop and how to use "Metro".

Every serious productivity (power) user will have to climb that learning curve but the results should be as good or better than Windows 7 and they may even find they enjoy some of the Metro apps.

Answer:Complaints about Windows 8 appear to be mostly lack of knowledge

Not my first time come across with this kind of judgement.

People mostly speak out of their preferences in using Windows as their part of daily life activity. That is why it matters to them venting anything that not meeting their preferences. Knowledge if any, isn't the big deal in this situation.
Some like Metro, and speak it out.
Some don't, they do the same thing. But surely speaking about something met and unmet will fall into different ways. That's perfectly normal. At least to me.

People who like metro will have their time enjoying and exploring it.
People who don't will demand how things to be as close as their preferences.
What I understand is, both group are actually within learning process by different ways.

But, judging people who like and dislike (complain or not complain about) Metro UI just based on their lacking/not lacking knowledge is something that I will never do.

New to the forum so I'll write my "Comment" in two ways.

(Skip if you hate emotional back-story)Long Version:
I've used XP for going on years now and switched to Vista about 9 months ago. First thing I had to do was remake all my folder thumbnails. I'm a real lover of pictures, I really am. I usually make a individual folder per artist, put the artist's face as the thumbnail, and stuff as much of their works as I can get my hands on into said folder. In XP this was nice and easy, I had the face take up the whole folder and it was easy to remember each person. With Vista it got annoying as my images were placed at a slant and when they were cached they often got lost and started to migrate to other folder (And when you have a public computer with password protected folders for your non-worksafe artists that migrate to your safe folders and replace thumbnails THIS CAN BECOME A REAL PROBLEM). For Windows 7 though I'm stuck...I really am. Somehow or another my folders now hate me and choose to disobeadiantly choose their own thumbnails, at a slanted angle, with 2 or so images stacked together, change when new images are added, and it has made it really hard to see and remember my folders now. Why was such a wonderful feature eliminated to such an extent that it now feels in the way to have the folder not be represented by a single image?

What "box" are your talking about? I've never seen the key displayed on a box. That's probably the product ID. The key is always inside the disc case on a slip of paper and on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) sticker supplied with the disc. The COA sticker is the holographic label that should be affixed to the machine. You may have entered the Product ID instead of the Key.

The story I'm getting from Gateway and retailer(Fry's), is that they don't include a copy of the installed OS with their PCs(?!).  This sounds right?  I'm in the midst of figuring out a driver hiccup in updating my daughter's newly purchased HP laptop from Vista Home Premium to Ultimate, but at least I have DVDs of both the OS and the upgrade.  This is our fourth or fifth family computer, and I've never seen one come without the original OS disc- if loaded by somebody else.  It seems like you always need it eventually for new drivers, something goes or suppossedly goes corrupt, etc. A "Recovery Disc" can be created on the Gateway PC:  " This option is used to create a backup copy of the drivers and applications that are included with the computer. This backup copy does not include the operating system. The backup created during this process is burned within Gateway? Recovery Management and should be labeled and stored in a safe place. "This will suffice for all future troubleshooting and verification/authentication with Microsoft- if need arises?  I got 2 days left to take this thing back.  Please.  Thank you.

The Drivers will not be on the MS CD...even if you got one.There should be a Gateway Driver CD which is where you will find them...If not Drivers are Free and available at the manuf. website.But if you are having issues i suggest returning the machine before the warranty dries up.

Here is a good one that may not be able to be possible yet...

I want to set up a spot on a website that on a prearranged time a user can input a username and password to allow access to a webcam conversation with relatively speedy video flow.

No, this is not for a porn site or anything but actually for a customers site who's purpose is to have webcam support for their customers where they can have live conversations and show each other parts or things vissually rather than by phone support or email. It does not need to be 24hrs running but only when they prearrange with customer a time and turn both their cameras on., if you know what I mean....

If someone has any insight and ideas that would work for this that would be aswome and greatly appreciated , the more detailed the answer the better. Someone I talked to allready has suggested using ICQ but doesnt it have video speeds at 10 frames a second only and how would I incorporate it into the site.

there has got to be a way and my goal is to find out and make it happen....

After a thorough search for pen-enabled windows 8.1 slates in Nehru Place (so called biggest tech market in Indian capital Delhi), i was not able to find a single store- multibrand/singlebrand that had that kind of tablet p.c. only thing i could find was a dell venue8pro BUT WITHOUT THE STYLUS .

Answer:total lack of pen input windows 8.1 tablets in india.

I forgot to make the point I wrote the post for , i.e which windows based tablet would other forum members recommend that comes with a functional active digitizer based Stylus. I am in India so input from local forum members with Similar needs/ experience will be much appreciated. My budget is under 50,000 INR. Bigger screen size the better.

Its a Dell Venue Pro 8" version and the upgrade seems to have worked ok from Win8.1.
Now in Windows 10 I am getting the new image on the lock screen BUT none of my apps appear as a notification. Whilst running Win8.1 it used to show my calendar, alarm setting and the number of unread emails. All of these are selected within the "lock screen" settings area BUT nothing.
It used to be easy to cancel the alarm BUT not I am having to login with the password and then can cancel or snooze the alarm.
A few days later I upgraded my Dell Venue Pro 11" tablet and have the same problem, just not getting notifications.
Somebody know the answer or confirm they are getting notifications on the lock screen.

The only premium movie channel app I found was Epix. Is this correct?
And that's prolly the most unknown movie channel.
HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Encore, Starz, TMC, all don't appear. Did I miss any?

What's up with that? You'd figure since there are so many more Windows users than any other "device", that would be a important place to host your app. Is there some sort of special reason that causes them to be not in the Windows Store?

Remember, apps for things like these services are written by the content companies themselved, not Microsoft. All these services work well in web browsers so a Windows app is not required. On other devices (i.e. Android and IOS devices) the streaming services experiences are poor using those devices' browsers. So Android and IOS apps were written instead.

I have just bought a Lenovo Ideapad Z580, this is the first time I have ever opted for a Lenovo product after recommendations from a friend. She had said she particularly liked how quiet the fan was and the fact it had a 'dedusting' mode, I looked online about this and numerous places suggest this model comes with an energy management app but I cannot find it anywhere on this laptop. My friends z580 is a windows 7 version, could anyone in the know let me know if the energy management 'app' specific to windows 7? Also, I have a little button on my keyboard with an image of a moon and a star which fires up the fan up but there are no on-screen options. Thanks in anticipation for any feedback

Answer:Z580 complete lack of energy management on windows 8?

HiThe moon and star button is for thermal management or fan control. To solve the osd problem, you could reinstall energy management. However i strongly suggest you use the windows 7 version as there are less chanced for it to work.

I am not very computer literate but since buying this lap top I have been trying to install the free upgrade before the offers runs out in 3 days time.My HP 14-z001 na only came with 32 GB of disc space of which there is only about 4GB left.  Have deleted most apps but this has not created much space.I read here that you could use something called a media tool and down load to a storage device.I have inserted a SD 16GB storage device (card) so I down loaded the media tool to it. I tried using the media tool and got all the way to installing windows 10, and the instructions said to remove storage device (admittedly this was for USB/DVD) before the first restart otherwise it would try to boot again from the media tool. When I did this it stopped the install and now says I need an extra 8 GB of space. So I deleted all files restarted my computer and tried to start again by re down loading the media tool but it seems to be stuck in this loop saying I need 8 GB of space. It now does not even create a back up of my files. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?Any guidance would be very much appreciated. Thank you

I am in the process of evaluating Windows 10 Windows to Go as a BYOD option. While assessing a number of the challenges of Windows to Go, the one sticking point is the inability to install feature updates on the devices. The idea of creating the drives using
LTSB came up, but we would really like the W2G devices to be in-line with our CBB deployment image.

Even if we were to stick with N-1, that means keys would need to refreshed annually. I personally think this is a huge oversight to not allow feature updates to apply on W2G. Especially when it is being marketed as Windows as a Service, you are removing that
entire portion from Windows to Go. 

Is there anyone out there that has looked into W2G for the Enterprise, and how are you addressing the challenge of no feature updates?

Thanks in advance.

I keep getting this error anytime I try to play a short video on twitter. This happens with all the browsers I have installed. What codec pack do I need to install?

Answer:This browser does not support video playback

According to twitter, "We currently support MP4 and MOV video formats on mobile apps. On the web, we support the MP4 video format with H264 format with AAC audio. You can upload videos up to 512MB, however you will be prompted to edit videos to 30 seconds or less in length." What version of Windows Explorer have you tried using? Are you using Win7, and if so, could it be the N or KN version? Have you done something to remove Windows Media Player?

Hi

Try the following HERE

Also what security applications do you have installed, also include any popup blockers and toolbars? and what you could try is below....

1. Try IE in its No-Addons mode, close all IE windows and click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools and then IE no-addons and see if it happens still.
2. Disable your security applications to test one of them is not blocking the images.
3. Try Safe Mode (F8 at boot and choose Safe Mode with Networking)

In another topic about browsers, one member said concerning their browser of choice, "Speed isn't really an issue. Instead, it's more about the browser's features." I thought that was an extremely interesting point, so rather than drive that thread [further] off-topic, I decided to start this thread, with a comment, and a couple questions, and ask that you add your own comments as to what you expect a browser, your next browser, to do or support.

One necessary ground rule - this is not about which browser is better or not, just what you feel your next browser should do, or support. Features you like, must have, or would like to see. Or even features you don't like.

Answer:Your browser does not support HTTP Request.

What website or is it on multiple sites?Have you disabled JavaScript, third-party Scripts, or cookies?Are you using any anti-tracker or anti-ad extensions?This seems to be an error caused by giving a page insufficient privileges to perform certain operations, or a script blocker or tracker is preventing access for a certain operation.EDIT: just thought it worth mentioning to try clearing your cache also. Weird errors like this are sometimes caused by old cached versions of webpages or scripts and the browser isn't loading the new ones correctly.

Home network of 1 hardwired and several wireless computers, all Windows XPPro or Win7. Situation...HArdwired computer is on most days and has had a srvhost memory leak issue, and has been pretty slow browsing, even though we have a 5 Mbit pipe to the house. Today a daughter was on her laptop and connected to network wirelessly and got a policeman icon with "the page does not support your version of browser" and an "update" icon. She could not browse - any request resulted in "the page does not support your version of browser" error. She did NOT click the update icon. She had AVG2011 up to date, and a scan showed no issues. She downloaded (using the hardwired computer) anti-malware software and did a scan, which found 90ish issues, which it claimed to cure, and new scans of laptop appeared clear, but she still gets the error.
