    Well, I think it's a safe bet that there's modem-like hardware somewhere on the premises, but I'm unclear as to how finding it will help me at all. There's a ISP-owned modem somewhere on the...

    "They" would be various ppl I've spoken to about my issues, including a clan friend that I spoke to in teamspeak about it. There's an ethernet cable running from the wall to my router, and if I were...

    Thanks for the reply. One of the problems I've had is, not being confident in my knowledge, when things went wrong, I didn't know if it was something I did, or something beyond my control. One of...
  4. I'm clueless about networking, and I'm tired of it

    I've built my own PC's and installed Windows, etc, since my first win95 machine. I, with the help of Google and the occasional Q to my friends, can handle most things I want to do on computers - but...

    I hurt my back lifting my 13# munitor, so I had trouble working with my hardware, getting down low enough to do anything with it, to press the "clear CMOS" button, etc. A couple weeks of bad back...

    Thanks. That's one of the things I tried before I posted here, though. Looks like I gotta pull wires or the battery (or push the clear cmos button).

    Geez, the more advanced it gets, the more trouble it causes.

    I tried this, it didn't work.

    That's weird. Just trying and failing to find another boot drive could cause problems? I figured it would just error out when it didn't find anything to boot.
  9. GREAT suggestions. I think the disconnecting of...

    GREAT suggestions. I think the disconnecting of the boot drive will at least work, and keep me from having to pull the battery or otherwise wipe bios. Great leads.

    Little busy now. Prepping...

    Which one, there are a few. The standard 'press a key to enter BIOS" doesn't work, of course. Nor does this one:



    WHen I hold down the shift key while clicking on RESTART, I get nothing. No...

    No, I haven't pulled the battery. I kinda want to avoid removing of the battery if I can. That'll wipe everything. It's a last resort option. . .one that may be necessary, though.

    Can I update...
  12. [RESOLVED] Enabled Ultra Fastboot, usual methods to get into UEFI after this does not work.

    Now, i understand that after enabling this I would not be able to press a key and get into UEFI. I have tried command line options to boot to UEFI, and I had a REG file that gave me a RMB menu...

    I believe that if you're gonna ask for help, you should do your part as well. Put forth effort, supply info, and update with any useful information you find, so the next person to google the problem...

    But if I use a hardware mic switch to turn it off, it won't work in TS, and that's obviously counterproductive. If I leave the mic switch on, then I'll hear myself talking in TS, which confuses and...
  15. That's not a solution, that's letting the...

    That's not a solution, that's letting the computer tell you what you do. Not ready for a hack just yet.
  16. I constantly hear room sounds over my microphone.

    Difficulty level: the usual suspect has an alibi:

    I'm at a loss, which is becoming all too common with this new build of mine.


    Thanks for any suggestions you might offer.

    I'll switch the light sometime today. It'll be like a disco in here, as bright as that is and as often as it will flash :)

    I'll look into the software situation as well, thanks.

    Dang. The slowdown requiring a hard reset only happens like every 8-24 hours. Gonna be a long waiting game sitting in Safe Mode. I'll give it a try as best I can. This is my only computer for now....

    It's a tough one guys. I know. If BS'ing with my couple of tech buddies, my moderate 30+ years of computer knowledge, and the googles would have helped, I wouldn't be bugging you. Failing an...

    Thanks, I appreciate it. I'm running v1511, build 10586.1176. It's nothing I've thought about much until this conversation. I'll be keeping it in mind, though, and as I wrote above, hope others will...

    You know, I KNEW this was gonna be an issue when they announced, "Windows Forever." Back in the earlier days of the 'net, I used WinAmp to play my music, and I got it into my head that I wanted to...

    OK, I rebooted since my last post (I had rebooted a few times in-between discovering my issue and posting here - first quick and dirty trick every PC user learns to fix something), and now I have a...
  24. Can't change which icons appear in notification area- maybe harder than you think

    I Googled it, and the process I saw described is not available to me - I don't have that option. It's missing.

    That last option, " Taskbar Settings", does not exist for me. It just ends...

    Thanks again Train, always appreciated. FWIW, my computer, main monitor, and router are on the same UPS. The essentials. :) I power-cycled the router after the gaming session. Had it been a longer...
