    Typical Windows Snafu : backup

    I tried to have windows perform a backup. They ran it and said it was a failure as I "cannot backup an external drive". So I unplugged it, scratching my head, and re-tried the backup again, trying to figure out how they were going to do it. They said they couldn't find the backup location...

    Access one hdd from another on same pc as tho I had booted into first hdd

    Hey Snuffy. Glad to see you haven't been hit by the virus. I am certainly familiar with everything you just told me. Been there, done that. I believe my vss problem has affected that hdd as I have used ALL of the bootrec cmds, bcdedit, diskpart etc often and never had a problem before...

    SOLVED BIOS entry problem

    Not sure what the ISO is you refer to...maybe CMOS? Same procedure, pull the battery etc. Anyway, shuffled the hdds around as I have one that is only partially set up with windoze that I want to reformat, as they were driving me crazy going in circles to create a MS acct & pw, and asked me to...

    SOLVED BIOS entry problem

    That's an idea worth trying, but I think putting a clean image back may have cleared up any crap on the OS that had been causing the problem because after all, it was the same image as previously, less Driver errors :) Don't think removing the hdd is necessary, just...

    SOLVED BIOS entry problem

    I had the same problem a few months back, and restored the OS with a saved backup image from Macrium as I was having boot issues. Don't know why, but it worked. I will give it a shot again.

    SOLVED BIOS entry problem

    Saltgrass: Tried that, but will keep at it. Thx Snuffy: For any of those commands to work, means you are already IN Windows. Auto logon is enabled now, & restart just does the same as now. As for "16 sec very nice time, usually indicates also that The computer is Asleep not Turned Off. you...

    SOLVED BIOS entry problem

    Well Wolfies suggestion did not work, so I will give Snuffy a try. I was hoping someone could find a registry edit or backdoor to delay the start. Later.

Tried hitting F2 at startup of pc and it just stops windows from booting (LED for hdd stops blinking)...

    How to Avoid requirement for Pin or Password?

    I would add to that, make yourself Administrator in Settings/accounts & you'll not need a PIN or password. Or you can edit the registry using regedit: Use Registry Editor and find: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\CredentialProviders\AllowPINLogon 1. Disable...

    SOLVED Sound mixer : playback works fine, but record not picking up audio

    It's not in Audacity. I tried another recorder, MP3 My MP3 4.2 and same problem no input so it cannot record either. It is definitely an issue in Win10, or a setting somewhere.

    SOLVED Sound mixer : playback works fine, but record not picking up audio

    I use Audacity for recording, but cannot record as no sound comes thru. PC has internal speakers which work. The sound control panel recording tab shows stereo mix with microphone disabled and sound mix in the green for go and is set as default. Any ideas to get sound mix to obtain the signal?
