I've looked on many forums and websites tried every thing and its still not working.my audio isn't working there's a red X over the sound icon and when i click on it a detecting problems thing comes up it says one or more windows services aren't working.I looked on forums and it said to see if windows audio was running i checked and it wasn't running .I checked to make sure all the dependencies were running and they were. I checked my virus protector storage and re-enabled what i thought was windows audio (because someone on a forum said that worked)and it still didn't work. I also tried the command prompt scan thing and for some reason it wouldn't start the scan. i don't now what to do can some one - Rank: 105 - Votes: 0 - Views: 5 - Updated: 2014-10-03

I have over 2000 pics in my pictures folder and need an easy way to select groups of pics to place in folders. There must be any easier way to do this then by dragging each pic up to the designated folder. When I get down to middle of screen I can not even drag them up that high to place in named folder. Also , the photo app from the start screen just says "pic library" and slides shows them or collages them. how do I create folders using photo App? There must be something I am missing because this just seems ridiculous for as much as this computer cost kinda starting I still had an old school easy to use computer. - Rank: 114 - Votes: 0 - Views: 13 - Updated: 2014-09-29

I have a Samsung np550p5c-s05in and it came installed with Windows 8 64-bit, later the hdd developed some problems and as I had warranty , they replaced it with a new one however this one came with a Win 8 32-bit which was not activated. Now , I had the product key from last win 8 that I had so I tried using that to activate but an error came up which said something like
"The key provided is not for this edition of windows ,
Either use the windows 8 setup or enter a windows 8 activation key."
So this made sense as the key I had was for a 64 bit win 8 , so I installed win 8 64-bit from an image file and then I repeated the same procedure of entering the key and the same error came up again.
So I would request you people to please help me with this, as I have no idea whatsoever what to do next. - Rank: 112 - Votes: 0 - Views: 12 - Updated: 2014-09-24
