Preferred Solution: How do I transfer photos from my Windows 8 Vista to my microsoft nokia lumia 640

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

on my old phone (925) I have turned on the backup but when I pressed the 'backup now' it came back with an error message saying the backup failed (error code 0x8019019d). What does this mean?

I've read some similar (but not identical issues) on the forum. Hopefully someone can assist.
My phone battery went dead while using GMAPS which ate up the battery very quickly.
Been trying to charge it for hours, but all I get is a flashing WINDOWS symbol at the bottom of the phone, then the NOKIA logo appears about every 30 seconds, but then nothing else happens.
Tried pressing the POWER OFF and VOLUME BUTTON simultaneously for extended periods, but no joy.
I have too much stuff on the phone to do a hard reset, and I'm on the road, so kind of in need in a quick and easy solution that doesn't affect my data (if one exists).
Thanks
Al

A:Windows 10 Nokia Lumia 930 - NOKIA logo flashes up, but does not boot

Maybe the device is on a reboot loop somehow, when you try to charge it keeps on trying to reboot but fails because the battery is out of enough power to finish the boot.
Leave the device connected to the charger for a while as the device is deeply discharged then try the soft reset combo power off and volume button.

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

Hi, the Lumia 1320 won't be getting Windows 10 mobile.
It has also now been dropped from the Insider programme, so unless you are already running an Insider build you can no longer update to Win10M.
I'm not sure about the game and apps updates you mention.

Phone recently updated to 8.1, now i can't download apps. Been through the Account.Live procedure which tries to send a code to an e-mail address which no longer exists and doesn't appear editable. Been through the "I have no code" procedure and got emailed a 7 digit code. Problem is the phone is expecting a 5 digit code so rejects it. Have tried Microsoft support but, as I expect you have all dicovered personally, they are less than supporting. Any ideas? Got about 15 apps which need updating but Computer Says No

You can not. The developer, Niantic Labs, has not written it for windows 10 or 8.1, and they have locked it down so 3rd party apps don't work. You may never be able too it just depends if the developer decides to put it on Windows.

Here is situation, I ordered two Verizon Lumia Icons for myself and my cousin. The first one that I received was a white version (my cousin's phone). After starting it up it updated to Lumia Denim a few hours later. A few days later it manually updated it to Windows 10.
Later that week, the second phone which is black arrived. That phone completely skipped the Denim update and went straight to Windows 10. The problem is that I wanted the Denim camera which has Rich Capture, etc... I tried downloading the Lumia camera directly from the App Store, but it does not have those features.
I have searched high and low trying to figure out if I could sideload the camera like on my Android daily driver. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Trying to get the Lumia Denim camera on Nokia Icon with Windows 10

Yeah the Lumia camera only actually works on Denim. Unfortunately even if you was able to download it, it would redirect you to Microsoft Camera.

I already happened several times, but today's "update" finally did it. The phone is rolling in a loop, settings wheels, then some progress, then battery empty sign then battery sign with a question mark (note that the battery was full!).
Tried the following:
1) Hard reset using key combo - DID NOT WORK
2) Windows Device Recovery Tool - DID NOT FIND THE PHONE, COULD NOT CONNECT TO IT
The phone keep rebooting in a loop which never stops. None of the methods above worked. The phone is finally dead.
As much as I love Windows Phone, more I hate Microsoft now. In fact, these rubbish builds have been killing my phone, but now finally I cannot recover it any more.
So dear Microsoft, I'm ready to sue you. That's the least I can do. About the rest I will talk to my lawyer. See you soon!

I recently bought a Nokia Lumia 930 and its was working perfectly fine, but I dropped it (on carpet) and now the screen has gone black. The 3 flashing keys (the home button, the arrow button and the search icon) light up but nothing else does. I would love some help with this. Thank you in advance.

A:Why has my Nokia Lumia 930 screen gone black?

Have you tried a soft reset? Hold the Volume up button and the power/lock button until the phone vibrates, this will restart your phone.

Hi guys - my girlfriend has had a bit of a nightmare and lost her phone at home somewhere and left it on silent. We've turned the house upside down (it was at home on charge and one of the kids has moved it). Being the braniac she is she has also forgotten her live account login as it used to auto sign her in. Resetting her password hasn't worked and now she's locked out of that account for 24 hours which probably won't last the battery. Any ideas how else we could get it to ring loud to locate it?
Thanks for your help.

Usually this is caused by your Microsoft Account not being able to sync. BTW an error code or any explanation given really allows us to help you better.
Check that you can sync...

Hello Kirby,

When you're at a place where you can see your phone's screen, you could use the method in the tutorial below to turn off automatic adjust brightness level, and manually set it to brightness level you would like instead. I like medium.

Hope this helps,
