Drive disappeared from explorer, will not reinitialise

Windows 8

Windows 10 A drive has disappeared from explorer (Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive). It has been working fine for about a year. In device manager it says the drive is working correctly and in the events tab it has three logs all occurring on the 17th of Jan 2017. First event says 'device started (disk)' second event says 'device configured (disk.inf) third says 'device not migrated'. In the information under the 'device not migrated' event it says the following: Device SCSIDisk&Ven_&Prod_ST3000DM0014&1f5e0e69&0&010000 could not be migrated. Last Device Instance Id: USBSTORDISK&VEN_SANDISK&PROD_CRUZER_SWITCH&REV_1.274C530010060123117524&0 Class Guid: {4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} Location Path: Migration Rank: 0xF000FC00FFFFF130 Present: false Status: 0xC0000719 So I went to disk manager to reinitialise the disk but get this error: 'The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.' Also slightly concerning is that in disk manager it says the drive has 3.86 GB unallocated but it's a 3 TB drive. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Plug and Play Device

Windows 8

I installed a Logitech wireless mouse on my Toshiba Notebook and now the Synaptics Touchpad does not work. I just let windows recognize the wireless mouse without installing any software. This is the second time for this and before I reinstalled the Synaptic drivers and it worked again. I found that while in the Device manager if I remove the USB device for the mouse the mouse that is listed there in the Device manager goes away. I figured this would mean the Touchpad should be active again but still it is not functioning. How do you remove the the plug and play drivers for the wireless mouse? I am not sure if just doing a disable on it in the Device Manager would take care of that or not. I am thinking if I do that the Touchpad might not function leaving me with no mouse.

Cortana seems to have major issues!!!!!! Tries to Open and then Closes. Freezes all other apps, etc.

Windows 8

I am doing a comparison evaluating IOS, vs Tablet Window 10. So I have this new Windows 10 Tablet for about a week. I must say I like the tablet, and Windows 10. I really like the price. I am doing a evaluation for some folks comparing iPad, to Windows 10 Tablets. Cortana is a mess! 1. The above behavior started today no explanation. When I click on the Cortana CIRCLE on the task bar or launch the APP from the Tiles, Cortana tries to open, briefly displays the Cortana window, and quits. The Tablet display dims. No other Apps will open, the Tablet is stuck. I click on Cortana again the screen brightens and all APP's now can open. 2. When I open Edge and then Open Cortana, Cortana opens and works. So Cortana seems to work when only Edge is open. Spent hours today on the WEB looking for a solution, running troubleshooting. This is bothersome that Microsoft would allow such a buggy app as Cortana to exist on their OS. Siri must be liking this. What is going on with Cortana?????? What am I missing here? I am really technical obviously not technical enough. Comments? Thanks

Remaing Printing document in the spool

Windows 8

Hello, I have a problem with my printer HP Officejet 6600, when I send a document for printing, the document is printed, but remaining in the clue, if I need to send a new document it is impossible to print. I try to delete manually, but the message that is shown is deleting document. I would like to know how I can solve this issue because the idea is that after I print any document immediately must have to disappear of the spool and allow to print another document without any problem. Thank you. Jose Rujano

xbox one wireless controller wrong drivers on windows 10

Windows 8

Greetings, i recently bought an xbox one wireless controller for using it on a pc that runs on windows 10, but when i pair it using bluetooth, my computer assigns bad drivers to it: hid compillant accesory, xinput something... and bluetooth device, it isnt even recognized as an xbox peripherial, so obviously xbox accesories doesnt detect an xbox controller when paired this way, i am using the latest version of windows 10 and when i connect my controller using a micro usb cable, xbox accesories tells me the firmware is up to date. This issue prevents me from playing elite dangerous with my controller paired on bluetooth, for example.

Still cannot sort pictures by actual date!

Windows 8

In windows 7 I could sort my pictures according to exact date taken. e.g if I have a folder for December and took pictures on several different days in Dec. the pictures would be sorted according to the exact date, like: 12/4/16, 12/10/16 and 12/20/16. I cannot find a way to do this in Windows 10 and because of a newsletter I write, it is very important to have the pictures sorted by exact date within the folder. I have researched this and no one has a satisfactory answer.

Why so many C++s? Is some of them not being within use on Steam Client?

Windows 8

I'm really confused about why I have SO many C++s, that I do need some clarification on what is using which C++ class! I know that I have Uninstalled some Steam Client games, but I don't know which C++ is being labeled "Disabled" or "Not In Use"! From 2005 to 2015, I do not know what each is used for! I have only 10 of them. Here is my list: 2005 64 bit 2008 64 bit Paired 2010 Paired 2012 Paired 2013 Paired 2015 (Paired means 64 bit and 32 bit)
