Windows Server 2008 R2 DNS Issues

Windows RT 8.1

Hello all! So let me explain what I have then I will explain what the issue is. I have a central server running Windows Server 2008 R2. All Computers that are connected are running Windows 7 SP1. It manages our domain as well as the connection to the internet and our DNS using xxxx.local prefix for the connection. I have 8 computers on this network. All have forced assigned IP address. The issue is that I have two computers that will connect to the internal network but wont connect to the outside internet aka it won't connect to www.google.com When I run trouble shooter I get DNS errors saying that the computer cant connect to the DNS server. I went into DNS management and I see that it has been set up and all the computers show up on it. However, when I go to the Reverse lookup section it only shows ips that look like the follow 192.168.200.xxx The computers that connect to the network all have the ip as follows 192.168.100.xxx . I did create a Reverse Look up zone for 192.168.100.xxx and added a record to that for my computers but it still doesn't seem to resolve the issue. What am I missing here? Any help would be great and I can clarify if needed. Thanks again!

Windows 10: Icons selected to appear on Taskbar keep resetting back to default selections after random period of time

Windows RT 8.1

Running Windows 10 Pro 1507 14393.693 When I select which icons I want to appear on the taskbar from 'Select which icons appear on the taskbar', I deselect 'Always show all icons in the notification area' then make my selections. These selections will remain in effect for hours or days but eventually my icon selections get reset back to off and just the default icons selections remain. This has happened repeatedly and each time I reset my selections and they get overridden again and again. If 'Always Show all icons...' is not selected, why are my manual selections being turned off by resetting the entry in this list to OFF. How do I prevent this from happening and why is this happening now, this isn't the way this feature worked in the past and this new behavior make no logical sense. If the system is going to decide what gets displayed then don't allow manual setting of preferences, if you allow preferences to be set then don't arbitrarily overwrite user selections. Is this a bug or poor User Interface behavior in Windows 10? This same configuration and usage does not reset selections in Windows 8 or 7 now or in the past as I have used expected behavior for years. This is happening on a Surface Pro 3 which doesn't have a lot of screen width compared to larger displays so I am guessing this happens when the system runs out of space along the taskbar with many apps open and decides to make the icon area smaller by resetting the display selections without prompting the user for permission and without any regard for the users need to see the selected icons for status rather than the tiny about of space freed up by turning off their preferences. You can select 'Show all Icons' but then you can't turn of any that don't show anything useful so it's all or nothing...

Streaming Problems

Windows RT 8.1

I am trying to stream video games to twitch.tv When I go to stream from this computer (gaming computer) I can not stream. I drop frames and the streams are impossible to watch however I have a laptop that is slightly older and when I stream from it (from the same program with all of the exact same settings) the stream is actually fluid and able to watched and frames are only dropped occasionally. Do you know the reasoning behind this?

Media image file Win 8.1 64 bit

Windows RT 8.1

Once more I'm going to got through a problem that has been plaguing me for over 4 weeks straight now since a total crash of my computer! My computer is an HP 110/210 energy star it was pre-loaded with the OEM 8.1 64 bit operating system,now when I got this computer there were 2 image files to be burned to SD or thumb drive what have you I burned these files and have them stored. One of the image files was titled media image files I would like to know exactly what this is,I am assuming that this image included the tiles that were pre-loaded on the PC at the factory. If this is so then this would answer a question that countless people had after downloading Win 10,that question was where did all my start menu tiles go!? When I downloaded Win 10 in early August of 2015 my start menu tiles also disappeared 4 days after running Win 10 I waited and waited to see what the problem was after close to three weeks there seemed no answer to this mystery of the missing start menu tiles so I returned to win 8.1. When I restored win 8.1 I did not use the image file I had burned to a thumb drive apparently microsoft just decided to use the saved image file that was stored on another partition on my hard drive. I revert back to win 8.1 from win 10 in September of 2015 because honestly I don't like win 10 the fact is you have less control over your computer with win 10. So what I need to know with the problems that I've had here,am I right in assuming that this media image file contains the start menus tiles for my O.S. as at this point I see that I am going to have to reformat the hard drive re-partition the hard drive and load win 8.1 from the original image burn I made on a thumb drive the day I got this PC.

windows 10 upgrade

Windows RT 8.1

I am having an ongoing problem with an invalid ip configuration. My system has the update KB321386 available to remove but installed updates says that it is a failed update. I have unistalled it twice and attempted to download and reinstall but every time it fails to install properly. I am told that it contains the fix necessary to resolve my problems. How the **** do I get the fix if it wont install on my system? I know its a windows 10 problem! All non-windows devices are functioning fine on the internet that my windows 10 computer says is invalid and has no internet. I seem to be able to get on the internet via Ethernet"wired" connection even though my computer says there is no internet. Most of the time I have to reboot my router in order to get it to work! Everything was fine until mid December. I went to the trouble and expense of buying all new equipment thinking it was on my end. I even went so far as to insist that my internet provider install new wires and modem. Needless to say they are PO'd and so am I! Windows 10 an upgrade? **** no!

video dxgkrnl Fatal error

Windows RT 8.1

Hi, Two days ago my computer (lenovo, win 8) was showing blue screen with Video dxgkrnl fatal error. I somehow got into a recovery mode: the system will try to recover and diagnose the problem on its own every time I turn it on. But it still can't fix the problem and I can't get out of the recovery mode. Now I'm trying to reinstall the windows system and see if it works. It's asking for an installation disc but I don't have any and I don't know the product key. Should I create an installation media on the USB? Is there any other ways to fix this issue? School's starting soon... Thank you!

Storing Video MTS files.

Windows RT 8.1

Re Storage of Video MTS files on Windows 10. Want to download MTS files directly from my video camera or SD card to Hard Drive/C Drive/ Video file/my file. W10 does not register these at all and ignores them. Only want to store them for downloading to a Video Editor, not play them. I guess this is a problem with WIDOWS EXPLORER. Any help would be most appreciated. Ian
