    Windows 8 Clubhouse

    Results are that he did a clean install and all is well, no issues. FWIW, on mine I've yet to see any issues either. Considering the machine I'm on W8 works quite well.

    Windows 8 Clubhouse

    Howdy all, I'm running W8 on my old HP Pavilion just fine. My son, the techie, not so good. He has a homemade box running a ASrock MoBo mod P67 Extreem4. Did an upgrade to W8. All OK EXCEPT the lan driver no workie. Latest LAN driver was no help. (He says he found somewhere that on an upgrade...

    Windows 8 Clubhouse

    Minor update. As mentioned earlier I've got W8 running on a separate HD. Been a week now. No issues. I'm no power user. Rarely have more than 3 windows open. Main uses are a little word processing (Office 2000, we'll see how that goes), surfing (I will have a bunch of tabs open there FWIW), and...

    Work PC freezes while loading Windows

    I'm gonna throw my 2 cents in here. To start I'm gonna agree with the MB being haywire but... The vid card was mentioned but I didn't see the result.

    Windows Update suddenly hangs?

    That's kinda severe. But it works. Next time try safe mode. Or make sure there is nothing else running. Do a virus/rogue/malware scan. Some of those will stop update. This is gonna sound korney but I've fixed weird issues before by shutting down the puter then unplugging it for 20 secs or so...

    Windows 8, full or upgrade required?

    You're welcome. I was pleasantly surprised it went as smoothly as it did. Hope you have the same luck. Let us know how it goes. Now AFA W8 goes, I'm not sure I like it yet. Learning curve steepened considerably. ;) I'm gonna have to play with it a lot more before I convert. Once beyond the...

    Windows 8, full or upgrade required?

    Hi folks. I found this site by accident (?) researching W8 clean installs. This may or may not be news but based on this thread -only- it might be. Using W7, I first downloaded the "upgrade" version of W8 pro as has been described to get the "discount." I saved the ISO to a folder on my HD...
