Preferred Solution: English language stands by default for US or UK?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: English language stands by default for US or UK?

You mentioned nVidia but are you actually asking about the Win8.1 installation? All of the Windows installations I've done from the CD [WinXP and earlier] or DVD [Win7 and later] had a screen early in the install that prompted to choose a language. Apparently Windows includes many languages as it's unknown which country it will be used in and the correct one has to be chosen. I think part of the Win7 DVD requirement was for the Anytime Upgrade feature.

I sometimes wonder about techs using tools such as Seatools, HDD regenerator etc to diagnose/repair hard drives. Do any of these tools beat Chkdsk in any way?
(besides data recovery tools, I guess those have no match in Windows).

Thank you

A:Do you need more than Windows default tools to check/repair a hard drive?

IMO, always use the tool provided by the vender. At the time you need this tool, you don't need a 3rd party screw-up to 'help you' really mess it up.

I have headphones through onboard audio set as the default playback device.

I have HDMI set to listen stereo mix (onboard) under recording devices so that I can get duplicate audio on my headphones and TV.

Windows 7 likes to set as HMDI audio as the default playback device when I am not looking (assumedly shortly after rebooting, but not quite sure when). And then I get no sound from my headphones because the programs are all playing on HDMI.

Is there way I can fix this?

A:HDMI hijacks default playback device

Hmm; I think HDMI is mutually exclusive to pc { speakers & headphones }. If the HDMI senses a signal to the tv, then the others go off.

right-click on the speaker icon in the tray and view/set the playback devices

Hello. I've got a basic problem I guess: I messed up with the Realtek microphone settings and selected "Set Default Device". I tried to fix it but I kinda destroyed my mic. - friends tell me they can hear me like I'm closer to them and they hear me worse than before.

Hi guys So Can't default as boot set SSD to device seem a quick background here I went from using a normal HDD with windows bit os and unplugged it while I installed bit windows os on my new SSD samsung booted up no problem after setting the sata controller Can't seem to set SSD as default boot device to AHCI and shut down to put my hdd back in as a storage drive not Can't seem to set SSD as default boot device yet wanting to format the drive just incase I have any issues with my ssd I can still use the pc via the hdd Booted up fine however it was running in IDE So I used the regedit suggested by windows of setting the value data box to and it caused a bsod I then read that I had to do the regedit for both the ssd and hdd so I did which lead to no problems booting up and running AHCI just fine However the only way I can force my computer to boot using the ssd is to hit F for boot menu and select it it is not an option inside my BIOS and by default every time it will just boot from my hdd unless it s not plugged in in which case it ll boot the ssd When it boots from hdd as always if not using f menu it ll show the ssd as drive E effectively everything works ok but having to hit f every time I boot up or restart to select the boot device is going to get tedious Just to elaborate what I mean by it not being an option in the bios I have the Gigabyte H M-UD H motherboard and the only boot devices that are displayed in the bios are Floppy LS Hard Disk CDROM ZIP USB-FDD USB-ZIP USB-CDROM USB-HDD Legacy Lan With Hard Disk selected it ll behave as described above To clarify the only way I can appear to chose to boot from the ssd is via the boot menu F Is there any way I can properly set it so the ssd is the primary boot device Baring in mind I don t want to format the hdd at the moment nbsp

I built my first computer yesterday and purchased an SSD and a 1TB hard drive. I installed windows 8 on the ssd and I want to have all future installs and whatnot go automatically to my larger drive. However, at the moment my ssd is my (C drive and everything gets installed there. yes I know I get the option of where I want to install things but that gets annoying!

So, how do I make my second (larger) hard drive the place where everything is installed there automatically?

Note the solution presented in the previous thread is for a different make of laptop.

Problem: Wirless disabled by default on start up and resume.

I am having the same problem with my windows 7 reinstall of my SYX160001. Have tried similar remidies... ie power management, driver updates, enabling netowrk discovery, etc.

Any idea on how to overcome this nusiance of needing to turn on the wireless

A:Atheros AR9285 wireless disabled by default at startup

SOLUTION! (at least for me on my laptop)

I just had this problem when I reinstalled the OS from the OEM disc (not the factory install disc) I figured the OEM disc had a driver conflict. But I incorrectly pointed the finger at the wirless lan driver.

The HOT KEY strip (the one with the buttons that turn white when you touch them just above the keyboard) on my laptop also controls the Wi-Fi Radio on/off button. This was the problem. You need the origional driver for that strip, even if your volume on the strip is working.

Background. Think of your wireless lan as two seperate devices... the radio is compared to the cord of an ethernet connection. The wireless lan card is the ethernet card. When you think about it as one device it is easy to see why so many people assume the problem is with the wireless lan card. But the important part is that a laptop usually devides the two up to save power. Controlling the radio from a button on the keyboard (or a function key) (mine is FN +F2) is another reason to think of the two as seperate items.

Before reaching this conclusion I tried using "allow the computer to turn this device off to save power" I also had tried Hi performance modes and other wireless radio from the control pannel in both plug-in and battery modes. I tried the turn wireless netork on and off as well. There were plenty of reasons to think this was going to fix the problem.

So update your HOTkey strip driver... see if that doesnt fix your problem.

A:Default monitor has been turned off in control panel on laptop

A little confusion on my part here! Are you talking about (two) external monitors being hooked up to one lap top computer? Or are you referring to the (default) monitor, being it's own built in screen being the (default) which wont work? And if the built in LCD screen won't work, are we talking about you hooking up an external monitor, which will not work as well? And something about you shutting down your computer ability to show itself on a monitor that may have some how been turned off, probably through your XP's (control panel) under (display)!

This was just me thinking of these question "out loud", maybe if we could have a little bit more insight to your problem, we could advise on how to fix it!

is there a way to do this? i messed with some settings and now music won't come out of my laptop speakers, just headphones.

I know the speakers work. help please

A:Resetting default audio settings?

You have probably made your headphones default, and turned off the speakers.
In the taskbar, near the clock, right-click on the speaker icon. Choose 'Playback devices'. In the new window, do you see 1 or 2 items? Speakers and below that Speaker/headphones. Right-click on what is showing, and in the list tick the options, 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'.
Now you should have 'Speakers' line showing, so right-click on it, and choose 'properties'. At the bottom of the box, you see a drop-box that gives 2 options. Make it to be 'Use this device-enable'. Click OK. That should work.

All of a sudden my connection went, when i tried to get on again it wouldnt let me and said that there was no connection, went into my daughters room and hers is fine. I had a look at the connections and it wasn't having a bar of it so I tried an ethernet connection...nothing. I had a bit of a play with things putting in ip address, ping back etc ... nothing is working. Had enough now and ready to chuck it out the window.

I've been having a problem with the display over remote connection.
In the configuraiton I'm using, I have 2 PC's connected by LAN, but only 1 screen, and in order to see the video output of the 2nd PC, I just use remote desktop connection from the 1st PC.

I've realized that when starting up the RDP, I get an error "The video card is not updated", although this error does not appear when connecting a monitor directly to that PC.
In addition, there's decreased performance of the video output through the RDP, and graphics seems to be with a slower refresh rate. I didn't have that kind of a problem with my previous graphics card, which was older.

I'm thinking that it has to do with the default boot of the card. If no screen is connected, it thinks that it's starting up with VGA configuration perhaps?

Any ideas?

A:GeForce 8500GT default boot

There's probably a simpler way to connect both computers to one monitor, provided that the monitor is an LCD. Many LCD screens have both a DVI and a VGA input. You can connect one computer to the DVI and the other to the VGA. If a monitor has both there will be a button to switch the input, so you can just press a button to switch which screen is displayed.

Also, have you updated your graphics drivers?

Does anybody know how to change the language of a scanner. We had to uninstall everything last year when our computer got a virus and the technician cleaned our hard drive. I reinstalled the software for the scanner and definitely selected English as the language we wanted but both times I tried it it came out in French.

Hi all!

I tried to reanimate the PC by using PCI or PCI-e card, but I didn't found any jumpers on the MB except one resetting bios. Switching between graphics cards are possible from BIOS which I cannot see, and it looks that the default option is IGD.
May anybody suggest something or it will be better to throw this MB to waste bin?

Well, here's what I would try. If you have the manual that came with the motherboard you can have a look and see what the BIOS layout looks like. After you've studied that a bit, try turning the computer on and navigating through the BIOS (without actually seeing it) by memory. You may be able to switch from onboard to a dedicated device that way. I know that sounds a little dull but it's gonna be tricky without having anything to look at.

Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.

A:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

This is not the first problem Ive had with my vx but it s far more perplexing than my first which I corrected with a new video card ATI x That card took a crap and now I have an ATI x Put simply my monitor keeps switching to the Default Monitor in my Device Manager but only when the monitor has been off for a while minutes or more It s difficult to say switching Monitor Default to Monitor when this started since I was on deployment when my wife told me about it Pretty much the scenario is that I switch off or Restart no problem But If I leave the computer off for more than minutes then turn it back on I have Monitor switching to Default Monitor to switch to the DVI cable wait a second then switch back to the VGA cable before my screen becomes visible After doing this if I go to the Device Manager the Monitor will be Default Monitor If I quot scan for hardware changes quot my vx shows up I have the latest drivers for everything from mobo to monitor nbsp

In windows XP how do you change the Screen Resolution to Default setting?

I try safe mode but it does not change to the Default setting?



A:Screen Resolution Default

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Display ->Settings. You can change it there... Default depends on your monitor and graphics card... usually it is 1024 X 768... You may also see in settings a choice for 16 bit, which is often Default, and called Medium. Or 32 bit with is "Highest"

hi, just want to know if its at all possible to tell windows to STFU and NOT let it install its default monitor driver (which then has to be rolled back to install your brand name driver)

this is in relation to my other thread that was in here a few weeks ago.




A:Disabling windows default P n P monitor driver.

How could you install Windows then? The graphical part of the Windows install is done using the VGA driver.

You could try installing the correct Benq drivers or the "other" default driver before VGA drivers and telling it to use these for your monitor. Then install VGA and reboot.

I would guess the issue is the suckiness of the monitors and not Windows..

hi, i made a virtual drive to run a .iso file (flight simulator 2004) and when i try to run the game it automatically reads from the cd rom drive. is their anyway to set the virtual drive as default so the game runs from their instead of the cd rom drive?thanks

A:default drive

It is up to the application where and what it reads. The game may be stupid enough to try only the first CD drive it finds or it may try only the drive it was originally installed from. So you can either change the drive letters so that the virtual drive comes before the real one or uninstall the game and reinstall from the virtual drive.

A:radeon 9600xt as default card

Hello and welcome to techspot!

Yes, you probably need to go into your computers "bios" to disable the "onboard graphics". For many computers, this is the "delete" button but not all. When you turn your computer on, tap the del button every second. Does this stop it from loading windows and go into the bios? If so, then you need to search around in there for the option of disabling the onboard graphics.

It would also help us to confirm what you need to do if you can tell us the details of your system. Do you know what make/model your motherboard is?

Not just being happy with the more constant framerate, i'm now concerned about lessening the 'jaggies'.


I'm using the "Quincunx Antialiasing" setting in the display option because I think it is the best speed vs quality option to use by default for games.

The poll question is, for Geforce 3 or 4 owners, what Antialiasing setting do you use by default (or most often)?

A:What Antialiasing setting do u use by default?

I use 4x with 2x anisotropic filtering mostly as I play a lot of Counterstrike. With this I pretty still max out on frames per second in Half Life. Other games I knock it back to 2x as my system starts to struggle a bit. I actually have Counter-strike settings saved and a standard less aggressive set of settings as well so I can change between them very easily in the display settings.

Hello guys,

My English teacher has given us two .MP3 files. They are small stories in English language. We should first write a summary about that then translate the whole text into our native language. It is an exercise!
If it was a text I could write a brief text about it and also translate it into our native language immediately. But the problem is that since the speed of the English-language narrator man is very quick I can't completely understand what he says.

I tried to find some apps to convert voice to text and installed some of them but no one worked properly!

Is there any idea how to convert those .MP3 English files to text?
It's an emergency and I'll be very thankful if someone can help me.

I don't think there is any way of doing that. A trick that I've found useful in my efforts to learn a foreign language is to play the mp3 file in Apple's Quick Time Player (Free). You can alter the playback speed. There are several slow speed options. At the extreme it all sounds zombie like but things are much easier to follow.

an editorial kind of :
Well here you have it gang!
The folks over at Tom's have run a benchmark of Vista vs 7 and its what i have suspected since running Vista and 7 in tandem for months now. After being lambasted and getting horrid PR since its launch, it turns out that Vista is not the dog that many who are now clamoring for Windows 7 claim it was.
I strongly suspect that if MS hadn't been caught up in the bad PR that took down Vista, They night have spent the last three plus years creating a new and innovative operating system....rather than giving Vista a fresh coat of lipstick for a (feel) of 7% faster.
I really have to wonder that if you told a 1000 XP'ians that have been singing 7's praises that the new OS was going to be Vista,.....but 7% faster, would switch to 7?,2442.html

A:I guess Windows 7 stands for 7%

I doubt those claims Greg; Vista Ultimate x64 was terribly slow on the same machine I now run Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on. It took ages to transfer a simple 1GB file to a flash drive from my HDD, and the OS was also painfully slow at booting (and at shutting down), which forced me to keep the machine on most of the time.

The UAC implementation on Vista was also far more annoying, and Windows 7 also sports a smoother experience than Vista IMO. Try changing a theme on W7; it takes far more time to switch the theme on Vista.

So, does anybody know why its not in with the Sample pics?

A:Default picture

Its In Xp wall paper file.If I remember right. In windows search type wallpaper. See if that brings you a folder up. In may be in there.

I'm a vista noob... were this XP I think I'd have this covered but vista does everything differently and I'm lost.

I was uninstalling/reinstalling Office 2007 for the millionth time (separate issue) and and now the fonts are weird.

here's an image of what I'm talking about:

this isn't so bad here but it makes some windows completely unreadable makes most icons etc difficult to use.

Help me out here.

A:Default Windows font suddenly changed, need to fix it

Sorry for wasting your time. Just needed to reboot. I messed with the icon settings before along the way but I don't know if that fixed it or if it just needed a good reboot.
I avoid reboots... I multi task like crazy and it's irritating to have to stop side processes just to deal with OS nonsense.

OK I recently got a new laptop with Tow hard drives, one for my OS and one for data.

My operating system is on C, and I want everythin I now install to default to D Drive, is there an option to do this?

Because C Drive is only 100Gb in size where as my D Drive is 1TB

A:Default installation locations for Windows 7

There is NO option for that choice that I am aware off. WAY BACK in windows, I configured
1) C:\ only for the OS
2) D:\ for shrinkwrap software (ie products I bought)
3) E:\ for user data

With 100GB on C:\ you can certainly allow all programs on C:\ and create a \user\yourLogin\ on the 1TB drive
for data. The issue will be to place a shortcut from c:\user\yourLogin\My Documents -> \user\yourLogin\My Documents on the 1TB and being resolute to storing files there {eg *.doc, *.xls, PICS, Music, ... }

Wherever you install programs, remember, there is ONLY ONE registry and it is ALWAYS on C:\ so
programs installed elsewhere can be a recovery problem.

Hi all I m looking for just about any answers I can get here because I m not at a loss One of my coworkers accidentally deleted a network driver from one of the computers in our store Dell Windows restore system to on default after XP password factory - enter Unable and it was no longer able to connect to the master computer or the internet I created and administration password so I could get into admin settings to try to work with it that Unable to enter system password after factory default restore - Windows XP on Dell way and no such luck So I tried doing a system restore - even up to a month ago None of the restores I tried to do worked at all so I decided to do a restore to factory settings and reinstall windows if I had to That went fine but when I started the computer back up it was asking for the password I had set Enter arrows and the F - keys were working fine but the rest of the keyboard seems to not be responding anymore So even though I can hit enter after entering the password I can t actually type it in Is there any way I can get around this at all I tried going into setup to disable the password but it even asked for the password to enter setup Thanks in advance for any suggestions nbsp

A:Unable to enter system password after factory default restore - Windows XP on Dell

Talk to Dell on the Phone... not India, but the country in which you work... You may have to send it back to Dell in Texas... Do not do it online... you need to talk to somebody... and count on it taking hours.
There is no way around the problem, except through Dell.
We cannot help you on TechSpot, as a decision has been made to avoid dealing with password issues.
When you call Dell, they will want to know the history... when purchased... Original owner on the warranty... other details and will require that you be very specific.
I would deal with it as a repair/warranty issue... but your appeal may differ.

I am fixing someones PC now, I keep getting an issue that the changes that are being made to the PC get reverted back once the PC is rebooted. It reminds me of something that happens when you log in in school (or library), and once you log out the PC goes back to default settings. What can cause this? Or what software can cause this?

No bookmarks, no downloaded pictures, no preferences, nothing...

Windows 10 is Stealing your Internet Bandwidth
The feature, known as Windows Update Delivery Optimization (WUDO), is initially designed to help users get faster software updates, which is quite a good idea to handle massive internet traffic of up to 40 Terabits per second (TBps).
WUDO works a lot like torrents work. Your computer running Windows 10 is used as part of a peer-to-peer network to deliver software updates faster to others, each person distributing a little bit of the files across multiple computers and helping everyone download updates quickly.
But, this peer-to-peer sharing method offered by Windows 10 is using your precious Internet bandwidth, without hinting you about it, because the feature is enabled by default in Windows 10 Home and Pro edition. WUDO is also enabled in Windows 10 Enterprise and Education, but only for the local network.

How to Disable Windows Update Delivery Optimization (WUDO)?


Sadly, Windows 10 Is Stealing Your Bandwidth 'By Default' — Disable It Immediately

A:Windows 10 Is Stealing Your Bandwidth 'By Default'

One of the first thing I disabled on my Windows 10 upgrade. I let the P2P enabled, but only for computers on my network since I'll have around 4 of them ending up with Windows 10 and I don't mind if they download updates from each others.

I'm trying to learn Assembly language but all the tutorials that I've read on the Internet are so confusing. They just go on and on about registers and bytes and don't tell me how to use them in a real debugger. I want to actually learn what they do in real life as I'm learning. Do you guys know any tutorials that are good and easy to understand? I know how to program in C++, Java, and Basic but I don't think that will help me with learning Assembly.

A:Help me find a good tutorial for learning Assembly Language

Uhm.. If you don't know what registers and bytes are, then assemply is plain useless. You might as well say "I want to learn C++, but I don't want to know about variables or classes".

Also, in 99.9% of the cases you don't need to go to the assembler level in debugging. Modern debuggers are advanced enough to let you step through source code and examine variables at the same time.

You need assembler skills if you are debugging routines with no source available or if you suspect compiler errors.

As the title says, I'd love to change the default folder file listing format to LIST
rather than using icons - so it stays in that format.

How to?

Esp on a flash drive, etc.


A:How to change default View to List?

Click Tools->Folder Options then the View tab
