The problem I described in my first post.
I use RoboForm as well so I think I'll have to stick with IE for now, in which case home page isn't a problem.
My first impressions of edge are highly favourable, it makes IE look really outdated, and as others have said seems really quick.
I haven't yet found out how to set a home page, can anyone point me...
I've tried running 'powercfg -h off' but nothing changes.
Is there a change in commands to stop hibernation.
You can't run powercfg from the Run command, it has to be in a cmd prompt...
I've just reinstalled Win7, including updating to IE11, and I'm having the same problem.
Difficult to even change to another browser, or apply some of the above suggestions, when you can't download...
Thanks bbearen, it worked a treat. Wish I'd thought of that.
Easy BCD Settings page
It's easy enough to reset the dual boot using easy BCD.
I slipped up in my earlier response. The system is BIOS, the clue is in the warning screen I posted initially which specifically refers to winload.exe.
I now have a win8.1 iso (thanks for the links)...
Win7 was installed first, followed by W8.0, which was then 'upgraded' to 8.1.
The system is UEFI, and I use EBCD to set the boot options.
JWoods, I tried the solution set out in your link, but...
I get the following screen when I try to start W8.1
I dual boot with W7, so I tried accessing the W8.1 partition and replacing Winload.exe with the stored version in C:\Windows\WinSXS,...
Strange, I used the upgrade route from 8.1 and all my programs, including MS Office worked perfectly with no registration issues.
Coochin,, I'm afraid you're wrong. I tried to use the correct key (from the label on the machine) together with a generic version of XP Home but it wasn't accepted,
I have now solved the problem,...
Thanks for your advice. I run Linux Mint on a Samsung NC10 I had spare, but this Dell belongs to a friend who is not computer literate, so I wanted to reinstall what she's used to.
I'd like to give MS a try but the phone no on the activation screen only connects with the automated system and I can't get to speak to a live rep.
Anyone got a solution?
I successfully loaded XP Home from the recommended iso, but it won't accept my authorisation code, even though it's the one on the label on the back of the laptop. Seems like I'll have to telephone...
Drew, If I right click on the start I see a control panel entry but it's empty. Similarly for some of the other entries.
Thanks Sudo15. I'll give it a go and feedback the result.
I've just inherited a Dell Inspiron 6000 with a defective HDD. I've got a fresh drive and need to install XP Home, which the machine has the authorisation code for.
All I have is an XP Pro DVD from...
As I said I reloaded 8.1 from my image, had to adjust the partitions first to get rid of the recovery partition and I reloaded the original MBR as well. I dual boot with W7 and I had to use...
I also am currently booting Windows 10 TP and Windows 7 without any problems. I was already dual booting W7 with W8.1 and used the upgrade install method for W10. I had to use EBCD to sort out the...
I upgraded from 8.1 to 10 and most of my programs survived the 'upgrade'. One that didn't was Taskbar Tweaker, but I didn't use it for much, only a few cosmetic changes like adding seconds to the...
After several windows updates I now find I have many versions of Visual C++ on my 8.1 system.
1 x 2005
4 x 2008
2 x 2010
1 x 2012
Can I safely uninstall earlier versions leaving only the...
Thanks jwitalka, the second monitor was disconnected a long time ago.
However I have found a solution, the Nvidia control panel includes second monitor details and has allowed me to remove it.
Browni, you appear to be right.
Some time ago a small vga monitor was used in addition o the main hdmi unit.
Now I'm stuck as to how to remove the second monitor, all my attempts in device...
The mouse pointer used to stop at the edges of my screen on W7 Ultimate.
Now it still does on the left edge, but vanishes into the distance off the right side.
I can't find any settings in Mouse in...
