    Forward Slash misbehaving

    I've got a unique problem that I've not seen before. I'm using IE10 (Windows 8). The forward slash on some tabs on both Metro and IE Desktop look like this by hitting that particular key alone - it appears as follows \ Now when I hit the Shift key, it appears as follows | I can do this - c:\...

    powercfg reports

    Got it - although the material in there is enough to keep one reading for the weekend. Not sure what I'd be looking for anyway.

    powercfg reports

    David, the file is in Explorer - my point is, being there, I still cannot open it.

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    In this case, I hope to remain disappointed - not having it to hang on the Restart. :-)

    powercfg reports

    I am using IE10 both Metro & IE Desktop. Also, no way I can copy the file from the Command Prompt. I'm not really sure I'm following you - I'm looking at the Command Prompt and of course one cannot copy from there with a right click etc. Maybe you can clarify - thanks!

    powercfg reports

    Here's what I've done - I typed in the Search and found it. Double clicking on it brings me up to a webpage that cannot be opened.

    powercfg reports

    I've looked it over & over before I posted this - I've run the same powercfg -energy - tells me to look in energy-report.html. I'm looking for a directory called energy report - not there of course. It must be a file listed somewhere but no way can I find it. It says it's in the System 32 - but...

    Keyboard acting kind of weird

    Suddenly and quite without warning, my forward slash is doing the following - make sure you're standing up before you see the following holding down the Shift button - forward slash = \ Now my keyboard is set to "English (United States) keyboard" - If I set it to "English (Canada) keyboard" I...

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    Did indeed click on the image - enlarged but difficult to make out the words. But I think if this thing hangs again on the Restart, I should be able to follow it. The Pointers / Arrows are helpful in at least telling me where to go. I've rebooted this rig several times since last reported but it...

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    Can barely see the picture but think I can make it out enough to make sense of it. Next time it hangs, I'll check it and let you know.

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    I'll wait till there's another hang in restarting - but where does one go to look for the error - is it in the Windows Logs / Applications? This is the big snag Kemical - it's when one such as myself is a novice at this stuff. I've used computers for years but when it comes to the mechanics...

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    I've got Event Viewer opened at present but not sure what I'm looking for or where in the mass of this stuff to find whatever that is. Maybe you can tell me what to look for. As for an A Drive, I see nothing in here yet.

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    I will do that Kemical, but not right now. I have to return to my employment but will get at your suggestion this evening. I'll let you know. Thanks!

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    As to the USB - I have a USB hub with my mouse device plugged into that and an A Drive. As to third party applications - not quite sure what you mean by that. Please clarify.

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    I did the sfc/scannow a couple days back. Everything showed good. No problems. I'll give you an A-Plus for trying Kemical. If there's anything else you've got up your sleeve, hurl it over this way. :-)

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    Thanks Kemical for your reply. All the drivers on this Laptop are up to date and the latest Bios driver that Toshiba gives are on this machine. If there are Windows 8 Drivers, my Driver update program doesn't show it. This is a touch and go thing for sure, relating to the hanging thing. I mean...

    Windows 8 hangs at times when restarting

    I have a USB hub that I've used for several years plugged into this unit. It never gave me problems before. I'm sitting here wondering if I should have a fire extinguisher at my side perchance this Laptop should burst into a ball of flame!!?! I went ahead and let Norton 360 do a registry clean...
