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.)

I found this out purely by chance today. Had to deal with Microsoft to see about getting a warranty replacement for my nine month old Lumia 830. I was informed by the MS rep that after October 1, they would no longer responsible for the Lumia brand and that they would be outsourced to a yet unnamed company. The question is, who is it?

Fifth - Due to the heat, the edges of the back cover started to crack and the protect film peeled off. Now the phone is totally dead. Battery works well in another lumia 535 device.

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?

You will have to reset your phone and loose whatever data is not backed up.
Power off. Hold Volume Down and tap Power. When the exclamation screen (!) appears release Volume Down.

The spinning gears will show and your phone will reset.

Make sure that the file ends in the .pdf format. If it doesn't, it will not open. I would suggest going to File Explorer to try to locate it if you are on Windows 10 Mobile. If you are on Windows Phone 8.1, try connecting your phone to a computer and select to view files using File Explorer.

You can't count on games companies to code their product for Linux, it will be too much work for them, they will simply make consoles versions.

They do that to direct you to Microsoft Camera. Even if you installed it, it would direct you to it.

A:Microsoft is shaping its freemium business model after Apple, Google

Too little too late?

Microsoft could have become the biggest monopoly in the software world, all they needed to do was one thing: pull the finger out of own a$$ and make .NET run across every OS.

It was so technologically doable, it was so needed by the software world, they just needed to pull down on that pride of theirs and do what's right.

And now that for the shortage of punters NodeJS took their place completely, they decided to wake up and pull back on that stupid strategy they catered for all these years...

Hence the too little too late. Lack of vision - that's a killer.

I have two Lumia's: 925 and 625.
Since we try to have as less radiation as possible (if possible at all, but I don't want to go into that discussion) around the house we switch our phones to airplane mode as much as possible. Off course also at nights.
Now, I discovered with a special measuring device, which is able to measure all kinds off radiation) that these lumia's frequently send a signal even when it is on airplane mode (with Wifi, NFC, BT off). The strangest thing is even that this is NOT occurring when the phone is normally on, but only when the lock-screen is active. (with or without Glance where applicable)
I notice a peek in send-signal every 5 seconds. I tried playing around with several settings but the devices keep doing this..

A:when the call recording feature is given in lumia update(e.g.lumia 535)?

Welcome to Windows Central! We are a Windows products fan site and not an official Microsoft website so any complaints or ideas you post here will not reach Microsoft.
You have a Lumia 535 so the chances of getting the call recording feature are slim. According to the latest news, only phones that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile preinstalled (so in other words; when you booted up the phone it started with a version of windows 10) will get that feature.
All other phones (those that came with windows 8 or 8.1) will probably not see this feature. It also depends on hardware according to Microsoft.

Well...you can get the latest drivers for the card, but it won't help that much, because it's a TNT2...and PCI....

If you wanted to play newer games, you'd have to get a new video card....but if you're running a PCI video card right now, then it may not be worth it...check if you have an AGP slot, is should be above the PCI slots on the motherboard, and slightly offset from them...if you have an AGP slot, then that's good, because you could get a good video card...but if you don't, you'll probably be better off getting a whole new system rather than just upgrading the video.

Just to be clear, 32-bit is actually 16,777,216 colors, so its much more then 256 which is just 256 colors. So for 256 you need to lower the color depth not increase it.

How and why did this happen? I have reset the time manually and turned off the automatic time update. So far the time and date are staying correct.
The calender items are a combination from Outlook and Google calendars. I believe the appointments with the 15 minute time change were entered in a window after those that the time did not change. There are also appointments where the time changed 6 hours.
In reviewing the forums I see this has been a consistent problem for 5 years, but I don't see solutions. Why has it not been addressed in your steady stream of updates?
I like having my calendar in the phone and not carrying a paper calendar. I also like having two interfaces that match among my devices. I would like to avoid the Android and iPhone phones.
