  1. Hello there. First of all, here are the specs of my computer: Product Name g4-2205la Product Number B8T44LA Microprocessor 2.7GHz up to 3.2GHz Next Gen AMD A6-4400M Accelerated Processor Microprocessor Cache 1MB L2 Cache Memory 6GB DDR3 SDRAM (2 DIMM) Memory Slots 2 user accessible Video Graphics AMD Radeon HD 7520G Discrete-Class graphics and up to 3060MB total graphics memory Display 14.0-inch diagonal HD BrightView LED-backlit display (1366 x 768) Hard Drive 640GB 5400RPM hard drive Multimedia Drive SuperMulti DVD burner Network Card 10/100BASE-T Ethernet LAN (RJ-45 connector) Wireless Connectivity 802.11b/g/n WLAN Bluetooth Sound Altec Lansing speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio v2 Keyboard Full-size island-style keyboard Pointing Device Touchpad with on/off button and precision multi-touch gesture support.

The problem came last week. I always leave windows update activated and to automatically download and install updates, the thing is that las tweek I was in my pc and it became to lagg A LOT. So i was like... Mmm let me restart it... And in the restart button it said: "Update and restart" so well, I left the computer install ONE update that took about 1 hour to install. After finishing my computer was slow as hell for loading at startup (Never had this problem before). So I was mad and I made all these st*pid stuff of cleanning my temporary files, etc. etc. and for the last thing I made an optimization of the HDD with Raxco Perfect Disc. It was "better", but after using my pc for a couple of hours (I always close it when I don't use it and wake it up when I use it again) it extremely laggs as hell, even if I press Ctrl + L Shift + esc it takes like 40 seconds to load the Task Manager (It opens but freezes for like 40 seconds). This happened just after windows update. Whats wrong!? Since that day I have never: *Never installed a program *There are no new tasks or programs at startup *I don't use an antivirus that laggs my computer (just W Defender), but please, don't comment it's a virus because it's not *Never updated a driver or software. I haven't install anything since that day. *Don't tell me I have to make some maintenance because I already did it. *Leave windows update waiting for a patch: My computer installed again another ONE update that took about 30 minutes. Didn't fix anything. I disabled Windows update and I gained a lot of "performance" since that. The problem is very annoying. If I'm in the facebook app of W8.1 it crashes and freezes. It really takes a long time to try to get back to the Start Menu. If I'm in youtube (Using any browser. I use IE, Comodo or Firefox) a message appears every time and crashes my video. The reason of message: "Shockwave Player crashed" and any of the browsers craches too. When I play Minecraft or Lord Of Shadows 2 it laggs, making like pauses in the game movements, It just freezes, JUST FREEZES! The music player of W8.1 app crashes and can't close it. It keeps playing music :/ Windows explorer sometimes takes like 30 secons to open a FOLDER. Why is this happening? I don't want to spend hours reverting in System Restore Point or make again a Clean installaton of Windows. I have a lot of programms and stuff to backup. :(
  2. Hi, I have a laptop with Windows 8.1 I play a number of games which require internet connection, when playing a game and my charger is not plugged in after a while I will loose connection to the internet. I then try to disconnect and reconnect to the internet however when I try to reconnect the laptop freezes to a point where I am forced to reboot the PC. Does anyone have a similar problem/solution to this, I don't mind having my charger in all the time but I don't really want to discharge my battery so quickly. This problem never occurs when my Charger is plugged in. thanks, Abid Patel.

  4. I am currently living in an area with such slow broadband speeds that my desktop attempts to download Windows 8.1 (reaching approximately 55%) and then resetting the download. I have no idea if this is timing out. I have been looking for a legitimate ISO download for 8.1, but I have to be honest, I don't really know where to find it.
  5. I updated my windows 8 to the newly launched 8.1 just today. I used to run a software named "Diet Odin" on my laptop but now it just doesnt start. Well, I would understand if it gave me some sort of error or compatibility issue, but it doesnt. The thing is, I start the software by double clicking it and nothing happens. I tried the troubleshoot compatibility and clicked on test program and nothing happened. What can be the problem here? Please help. I need to run this software badly, its really important for my business.
  6. Hi there !! Anyone got any trick to update Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 for free ?? If yes, then please share Blog : www.letskickstart.com [ new ]
  7. Hi, I have made a video to show all the features that are new to Windows 8.1 (Blue). This is the latest build that has been leaked recently. It brings some nice features like an improvement to the Snap-View and a feature called "Kiosk-mode". Everything is explained in the video. I am sorry if I sometimes forget the words and things are hard to understand, because obviously English isn't my first language. Hope you like it. :-) [media]http://youtu.be/16p0Qsrowx0
