Groove Pass is in a seemingly unrenewable (and partially working?) avow after it expired in December
How do I renew my Groove Music Pass? My 12-mo prepaid expired December 19th, and at https://account.microsoft.com where it shows the expired donation there’s a “Renew” link, but this takes me to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/music/groove-music-pass
which says “You Have a Music Pass.” I expected that page to let me re-up, not tell me that I have a pass. Equally links from https://music.microsoft.com take me to the same place.
I’m not the only one having this problem:, this person on Chirp had a seemingly sterile exchange with back about the same: https://twitter.com/FishFaceMcGee/status/809742022760431616)
Oddly if I use https://music.microsoft.com to try to listen to music when in this limbo, I can only get 30-second previews of music under Explore as I’d expect (I am not paying for Pass anymore), but any music which I’d added to a playlist that is not purchased,
and is not from OneDrive, *is still not marked with the “Music Pass” badge and I can listen to it in its entirety*. Oops!
I was using my laptop and I required to know how much RAM I had, so I went and checked. It said I had 4GB but only 2.99 was exploitable. I was shocked. Can you guys tell me how I can reverse this and why I’m having this.
Processor- AMD A4-330M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 1.90 GHz
Installed Memory(RAM)- 4.00GB(2.99 exploitable)
System Variety- 64-bit Operation Logic, x64-based processor
So I’ve had this problem since days gone by:
The first epoch I was puzzle on the ‘welcome screen’, I tried depart up repair but it told me it couldn’t fix anything.
I tried a regular restart and that worked but since then Windows 10 freezes after a minute and I can’t do anything most of the epoch (I can still move my mouse).
Googling this problem I’ve come across several solutions which I’ve tried:
-SFC /scannow Didn’t find anything ( ran it 3 times too)
-chdsk /r Didn’t fix it
-depart up repair couldn’t fix anything
-Clean boot ( with the windows services still on though, only disabled all third party services) but it still froze
-Disable all depart-up apps (together with the clean boot) didn’t do anything either
-Scan for malware with malwarebytes didn’t find anything
-Scheme restore to 2 different dates ( both were atleast 2 days before the freezing happend)
Are there any more ideas? The only factor I can still think off is clean booting with also the windows services disabled..
Everything factory fine in safe mode.
Thanks in advance

Okay so I have a addict that has a Windows 7 laptop. He does a lot of copy and pasting and has run into this issue. It is completely random. Basically about every 5th or 6th that he right clicks on some selected manuscript it will just deselect the highlighted
manuscript. He can usually right click the highlighted manuscript and select copy, but every so often it just deselects when he right clicks. We have tried 3 different mouses all different brands. Some were wireless and some were hard wired. I have run out of ideas of
what could be causing this. Please help. Read More
After changing password, Outlook 2010 Mail POP3 on my two laptops no longer can access Yahoo Mail account. Though web-based Outlook Mail working fine.

I’m trying to troubleshoot some basic configuration on an IIS 6.1 web locate. The Authorization fails and, at the bottom of the pane, a link with the copy saying something like “More information about the configuration and diagnose of UNC connections” is
thought to take you to:
The problem is, that link just takes you to the iis.net site FRONT PAGE! No mention at all of the issue. How the **** are this kind of links no longer working?
This is not the keep up I was expecting. MS, humiliation on you. Is there a way to reach the original page?
One more occurrence, the categories we need to use for these posts are ridiculous. This is not an IE issue, it’s a MS web locate issue.
When I click on internet explorer icon I get a brief flash of my home page then I get the following message:
Internet Explorer has blocked running. A problem caused the program to hinder running correctly. Windows will close the
program and notify you if a explanation is available.
This has been ongoing for some point now. I need to find an easy fix for this problem OR change to another program; which I really don’t want to do.
All help appreciated.

I have a Windows 10 hp laptop and a Cable Matters HDMI to VGA adapter. I usually plug my laptop to an HD TV but am having to do this for a while.
I cotton on this can be problematic, as hdmi to VGA is digital to analog conversion. I got it operational the past after plenty of fight, not in display options but windows key + p and selected extend. When done operational I closed my laptop lid. Since then it has not
worked. Can any you help?
I’ll tell you what I’ve done and what it’s doing. Now, Windows does indeed think it’s connected to an external monitor. Everything about windows says so – there’s two icons in display. I can move things to other monitor. But, the monitor doesn’t agree. It’s
blinking in standby.
If I unplug VGA from monitor, it realizes it. If I unplug adapter from Windows, it realizes it. But there’s still a gap and I can’t find the answer.
I’ve restarted, cease trading down, combinations of those with plugging in adapter before / after, I’ve deleted generic display from device manager, tried a different monitor, and other various “windows nudges” I call em. Went to manufacturer’s put, not any help there.
Thanks in advance! Read More

I have a really annoying issue after reinstallation of Windows 10. The network grade is “Not connected – networks available”, but internet moving part perfectly. The problem is that since the grade is “Not connected” some programs, like office365 think that
I cannot log in since I have “no internet connection” meaning I cannot use the office programs.
I have runned the network error resolution program a number of times and it tells me to reinstall the network card, which I have done a number of times without star. I have also upgraded the software to the latest description, but nothing happens.
After reinstallation I first had Windows firewall and the computer only connected to a mobile network we have, but not to my home router. I then installed Norton again and it now connects to all networks, but tells that is not connected. The interesting
business is that before I have logged into my profile, the networks says that it is “connected” so it is first when I have logged in that it says I’m not connected.
Internet moving part fine on other computers and smartphones, so there is no issue with the router etc.
Anyone that have a clue how to elucidate this?
I am experiencing this issue from a week and I can’t figure out a way to explain it, here is the whole point that happens
Lately I was playing Assassin’s Creed Rogue and it was function perfectly, it was OK dig then.
Next day when I opened my Google Chrome, it crashed with a message that “Google Chrome ran out of memory”. So I searched youtube for the answer. The seminar says,
1. open msconfig
2. Check hide all Microsoft services.
3. Disable all other services
I followed the steps and it moving part for chrome, but sadly somehow it causes something to my game, as I tried to open the game nothing happened no error nothing, I also tried to run as Administrator but nothing . So I tried reinstalling the game, but no luck,
and after some measure I tried to open the game with another client account, and It worked perfectly.
So please help me i have undone all the changes I made at the measure of fixing chrome, but nothing moving part and I don’t wants to create new client account just to play a game
I set up a private email address as an alias on my Microsoft account. Microsoft sent a substantiation email to that address. That is set to forward back to my Microsoft account. It was duly received there, and put in the junk mail folder.
I belief that a bit odd so I sent a feedback message from Outlook.com, which goes to the Uservoice people, saying the Outlook.com junk filter was being harebrained. I got a copy/paste response about phishing and satire emails, utterly failing to respond to my
point. I remonstrated. I had a further reply claiming that Microsoft never launch substantiation emails. So clearly Uservoice do not know how Microsoft accounts work.
So I set up another alias so that I could capture the substantiation email (as I had deleted the first after using the link). Like this:
Subject: Confirm your email address for your Microsoft account
To: [alias email address]
From: Microsoft account bunch <account-security-noreply (at) account.microsoft.com
Date: Mon, 21 Nov 2016 05:27:14 -0800
It looks like you added an email address as a Microsoft account alias.
– [alias email address] Added
NOTE: If you’re not already logged in to this account, you will need to log in using an
email address that has already been verified.
If you added this email address as an alias, use this link to bear out: [link deleted]
I replied copying that email to Uservoice (Microsoft Sustain Bunch 5 <tickets (at) outlook.uservoice.com>) and I got another email back again denying that Microsoft launch such emails. How they can do that with the evidence in front of them I completely fail
to get the picture. And for them to again claim that it is a satire means they think I have been brainless enough to be taken in by it, which adds insult to injury.
As far as I can see Uservoice is a way of distracting users so that they think something is being done but in fact it might as well be >dev\null.
I have bought a SDR Radio Dongle, but could not shock it using the Software. Chance 10 not prompting to install a new device.

My MS wireless laptop mouse bung up running. Perhaps it’s lived it’s lifetime but it was running yesteryear just fine. The battery is good. It’s a model 1023.

Any suggestions? I would appreciate you insight.
I’ve sent my recently bought lumia 950 to b2x after a display failure (nothing was displayed: green screen even after a hard reset)
Anyway, all seemed fine for transport, but now it’s been nearly 3 weeks since they received everything, and I have no news.
The check repair position gives a lovely “NA”.
I tried to contact them by phone through their website, but they never call me back. The chat option doesn’t vocation either!
I even tried to call their Hungarian center with the phone number in print on the delivery label. Obviously no answer.
Finally I’ve sent an email to the provided email (*** Email address is removed for privacy ***), no answer…
I’ve been searching all around the internet, but found nothing for contacting them.
Their communication is catastrophic, I have no news. I am not even sure they are proceeding with the repair of my phone. Can anyone at Microsoft have any more options? Any other customer have the same issues?
Thank you for helping me/us.
I recently installed 2gb ram on my laptop which had 2gb ram on it and then i updated my laptop to windows 7 final win7 x64. Still it showed that 4gb installed 1.59gb serviceable please help me crack this
Problem . TOSHIBA C850D
In my BIOS it shows 4gb memory installed
PLEASE HELP 🙁
Before I recoil, I would like to say that I have already read many posts on both the Microsoft and Toshiba sites concerning this issue and all possible solutions given have not worked, so I have decided to write down my own post.
When I updated my laptop to Windows 10, my web camera ceased to labour on any program. The laptop can’t even detect it.
Model: Toshiba Satellite S55-C5274
OS: Windows 10 64-bit
I have already looked into Toshiba’s product sustenance (http://support.toshiba.com/support/modelHome?freeText=1200010656&osId=26) and can
not find the driver for the web camera. I have also looked into my device manager, but it does not have “imaging devices”, presumably because the web camera can not be detected.
I have 12 GB of RAM installed however Windows say that only 8 is available (basically it doesn’t see 1 RAM join out of 2. Also when I place those 2 in dual channel everything is okay. But if I add more RAM to the non-dual channel
niche, this join won’t be serviceable (it is recognized, since windows properly says how much RAM I have installed) either.
I don’t have limitation in msconfig and there doesn’t seem to be anything related to the problem in BIOS (MoBo GA-970-DS3P). I also don’t have integrated GPU.
Good day everyone,
Windows 10 USB half way through installations failure!! I was trying to install windows 10 pro from my USB onto another 500GB HDD, and it went half way through the process fine, but then it fails. So I have to ended the process and try to reinstall it again,
but it doesn’t work?!! What is going on here? How can this not working?
Please give us some feedbacks or supports on which we could resolve this issues to make it exert yourself correctly again. Thank you all for helping.

What do I d? Restarting doesn’t labour either.

I am on skype a lot. This causes the call banner to give you an idea about at the top of the screen when I substitute to another app while in a call.
The problem is none of the apps I use are exploitable while in a call as the call banner covers there menu or search box or some critical feature rendering the app impossible to use while in a call.
Please fix this. it’s the most infuriating issue ever. I cant believe this is still a problem now that the OS is so mature. it honestly make me think that Microsoft never actually uses or tests the OS they are building. Please try it. Put your self in
a skype call, then try use the XBOX app or Instagram – try searching or posting an image it cant be done.
Does anyone have the link for the preview forums or a better place to bring this to Microsoft’s attention please?

Had 2 issues, one of which was a hardware issue. If I could reproduce both and post, I would. Was available to me about 2 hours ago. Not now. Reliability History has been un-reliable over the past couple of weeks. Sometimes it shows info and other times
it doesn’t. Even the old object doesn’t show…at times. Really wish I knew what that hardware issue was.
As for desktop…weird. Half there, half not. Intermittent.
Certain sites, bottom will go black or line will go right through center of page. Not sure what that is. If I refresh, it goes away. If I re-direct the mouse, that might exertion, but not always. Checking Device Manager for updates. Nothing so far. Windows
Defender indicates I have no issues.
Downloaded free side of Malwarebytes but have done so many times I cannot get full benefits. Its just there. Can anyone smack of another reliable free version?

Sticky Notes gone astray and disappeared from any file list I searched through.
I tried ‘sfc /scannow‘ rebooted and it didn’t work.
I downloaded the file again from an outside mine, and putting it in the original location.
I tried launching that, and it didn’t run or anything.
I still have the original StikyNot.snt file and only need to take out the information from there. So if I can recover that it’d be okay.
Thank you in advance.
