We couldn't connect to the update service. We'll try again later, or you can check now. If it still doesn't work, make sure you're connected to the Internet.

Windows RT 8.1

Hi guys I have this problem on my windows 10 professional computer from PCSpecialist Octane 3. I did 3 clean installs and sfc/scannow now with nothing wrong as a result 7 times, dism and chkdsk /f/r 7 times wsreset.exe 6 times and turned off my firewall 3 times. I use mobile internet that peaks at 4-5MB per second that unlimited and i get this problem. i had a chat with a guy called lyandon from microsoft tech support and a women with an unusually foreign name from microsoft tech support and they said use a different internet. i use a different internet then it works but why my internet is the same speed as my mates and ones a uni that connected to a network that slows the connection down any help?

Switching sound between devices

Windows RT 8.1

I recently bought USB headset, it works fine and everything is nice and dandy, but there are certain games and apps, which for some reason still output audio to my analog speakers, even though playback device chosen, are my headphones. For example, I choose headphones and run a program, and sound, instead of being put through speakers goes to headphones (so speakers don't produce any sound), but if someone sends me a skype message, speakers will produce skype's sound, while headphones won't. This is solved by disabling speakers, but I don't want to constantly disable speakers in control panel. How can I make it so only one device is used for all sounds?

Microsoft Edge Password Manager: Edge will not let me manually add passwords

Windows RT 8.1

Edge will not let me manually add password I use Microsoft Edge as my browser. The "ask to add password" function is random, at best. Rarely will it ask me, and other times not. There is absolutely no way to manually add a user name and password. There has got to be a way around this issue. Any suggestions, or solutions? Thanks

Computer Restarting Every Few Hours

Windows RT 8.1

Since the last automatic MS update last week to my PC, the computer restarts, on it's own, every few hours. While I work on it, it doesn't seem to do a restart. But when I don't work on it for awhile, and come back, there's the opening screen showing it has restarted again. Tis is the second time this has happened. The last time, a few months ago, not sure if coincided with MS update, but it started RESTARTING and I deleted the app program Sticky Notes which I thought might have been the cause. This time I cannot get Sticky Notes deleted. What is causing this? The update? I cannot afford a tech to come and look. Have had W10 for about a year now which incidentally downloaded itself without my permission. I have two virus apps on that I keep current. MS Office 2010.

Unable to boot following latest Windows 10 update

Windows RT 8.1

After these three updates ((KB890830, KB3214628, KB3213986) to Windows 10 were done on 1/15/2017, my Dell XPS 13 will no longer boot. It has power, but will not show anything on the black screen...no cursor, no Dell logo, no spinning dots. I've read everything I can find and most suggest it is a video driver issue. However, none of the recommended fixes have worked...including downloading Windows 10 to and attempting to boot from a USB flash drive. Nothing happens with the exception of when I attempt to boot from the USB and press "D" when powering on...I'm taken through several screens of display colors and then back to black. Very frustrating to go to Dell and am being asked to pay for technical assistance on an issue caused by others. A simple update has now consumed hours of my time with no resolution in sight. Anyway, any suggestions on how to bring it back to life?

Permanent solution to => Wi-Fi doesn’t have valid IP configuration

Windows RT 8.1

Hi there My friend has a new Lenovo laptop which was working fine until a couple of weeks ago, without any apparent cause, WLAN stopped working. When I looked at it 2 weeks ago, Troubleshooting identified '"Wi-Fi'' doesn't have valid IP configuration' as the problem. In the same network, my laptop connected with no issue and a smartphone has no problem with the same credentials. So a problem with the router is out. I found a solution on Youtube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekBhV5VeIt4 ), which provided a solution involving using the following settings for TCP/IPv4: IP adress - 192.168.1.101 subnet mask - 255.255.255.0 default gateway - 192.168.1.1 Preferd dns server - 8.8.8.8 alternate - 8.8.4.4 [The DEFAULT settings are getting the IP & DNS Server address automatically.] This happened to restore internet after months. The problem is 2, 3 weeks down the road, the exact problem is back. At that time, I tried to connect it directly to the router with an Ethernet cable & got the same problem, although the same cable delivers internet to another old XP-PC. I did not have time to test if the above problem works for the Ethernet cable. The questions: exactly what triggers this problem on this specific computer? I would like a solution that is permanent & does not require this restoration every now & then as I cannot always go to the old lady friend, when the connection she needs for her job fails. So what's behind this and how can it be permanently dealt with? Thank you in advance.

Keep display ON when lid is closed

Windows RT 8.1

I'm running Windows 10 on an ASUS laptop. I have the power settings set to "do nothing" when the lid is closed. However, the display turns off when the lid is closed. When I reopen the lid, it immediately comes back up, and is not in sleep mode. But it prevents my security camera from recording when the lid is closed because it records based on the display on the screen. I've checked the Display and Power settings and everything appears correct. Is there a workaround or a setting that I'm missing?
