    WMP playlist names only last 3 hours

    Sorry, I should have mentioned earlier. I didn't have access to the tablet between the time I started this thread and the time I had a call to say the issue had been solved (it still seems to be, on the tablet at least). I disabled synching in OneDrive on the desktop when I set up windows, but...

    WMP playlist names only last 3 hours

    Thanks for the advice, and apologies for not getting back to this thread sooner, but this seems to have gotten a lot stranger than it looked at first. The computer in question isn't mine, I just keep fixing it when this happens. The 3 hour time limit seems to have been resolved by the user...

    WMP playlist names only last 3 hours

    Hi, I've recently encountered a problem in windows media player on a windows 10 machine that I can't figure out the reason or solution for. Simply put, any playlist that is renamed will revert to it's original name after about 3 hours. This happens regardless of whether it is renamed in media...

    Media player moving music library?

    Thanks for the advice everyone, I've taken a look at the computer and used the troubleshooter to rebuild the database. It doesn't seem like there's a problem with WMP, but the music itself. For example, there's an album that's supposed to be full of music sung by a particular singer. The album...

    Media player moving music library?

    Hi all, I did a few searches on this but couldn't find anything that matched these symptoms. Someone I know has a problem in windows media player on windows 10, where the tracks in the library view have apparently been re-organised in a seemingly random way. For example, going into a particular...

    not booting, GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard faulty?

    Just a quick update to say this might be solved. It looks as though it was the battery, but it took 3 or 4 replacements from new, sealed units to get it to work for longer than a few hours. That was over 2 weeks ago and it hasn't shown any problems since then.

    not booting, GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard faulty?

    As an example, today is 08/12/2015, Tuesday. A computer with the wrong date might show 07/12/2015, Monday. The error that system was having though, was more like showing 08/12/2015, Saturday. So it's a correct date, but with the wrong name.

    not booting, GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard faulty?

    I checked it with Seatools, and it passed every test. I had to clear the CMOS a lot to get it to boot again so I couldn't check the date in the bios, but I'm not sure if I described it properly before. The date in windows was correct, it had the right day, month, and year, but whatever table...

    not booting, GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard faulty?

    It took a lot longer this time to get the computer to boot. I'd replaced the battery before with no apparent effect, but replacing it again seems to have stopped the symptoms, it can now boot into windows and has a working keyboard and mouse, so thanks bochane. I tested the hard drive with that...

    not booting, GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard faulty?

    I wanted to leave this a while before letting people know if the solution worked. Well, today I found out. The computer ran fine without any problems for a week after passing 2 virus scans, a disk check and SFC, then it stopped booting again this morning with the same symptoms as before.

    not booting, GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard faulty?

    I ran check disk and it didn't find any problems. SFC reported nothing wrong as well. I've put in a new pair of SATA cables and it hasn't shown any symptoms for a few days since then, but I've noticed there seems to be a lot of vibration around the hard drive. Not all the time, just sometimes...

    not booting, GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard faulty?

    I cleared the cmos again, scanned it with a bootable disk of AVG and healed 135 infected files. It's been running fine ever since then. SFC and Memtest have both passed without errors. Thanks again for the advice, I seriously didn't expect it to be a virus. (Edit) Looks like there's another...

    not booting, GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard faulty?

    Hi, thanks for the advice. I managed to get into windows after doing a startup repair, and ran SFC. I left it for a bit while it was analysing, then when I got back the screen was black and the only response to input was the numlock light turning off on the 2nd attempt. I restarted the computer...

    not booting, GA-H61M-DS2 motherboard faulty?

    Hi, I have a computer that won't boot into Windows 7 and could do with some advice. Sometimes it gets to the logo screen and restarts, sometimes there's just an error message saying no bootable drive is found. I've tried booting from a dvd, which seems to work so far, so at first I thought it...

    SOLVED HP S5780uk can't detect wireless networks

    SOLVED. This took a while. I didn't find any references to 3rd party security products in the device manager hidden items or in the properties for the network adapter. I disabled power saving and restarted it without success. A new adapter had the same problem. Eventually I just tried SFC...
