    Windows 10 to 7

    Hi @metzu - unfortunately, it's not that simple. Depending on how long ago you upgraded your OS to Windows 10, you may or may not be able to do a downgrade. Here's a few articles on the topic which explain things in detail. These are our own Articles on the topic: https://www.groovypost.com/howto/downgrade-windows-10-to-windows-7-windows-81/ https://www.groovypost.com/howto/downgrade-windows-10-previous-windows-version/ Give these a read and report back if needed here. Thanks! -S
  2. Are these laptops or desktops? Sounds like they are desktops given you mentioned (mouse and keyboard). That's really funky. The update for windows should not impact video or keyboard during the boot process. Are you not getting anything during the post/boot cycle before windows? If it's an OS issue, you will get video in BIOS at least... If you're not, I'd verify the monitors are plugged in correctly and hard reboot the boxes. If you still can't get video you either have an issue on the motherboard, video card or monitor. If it's happening on two individual boxes..... that's a huge coincidence. You might have had a power event that fried something on box boxes. Again, very rare but not impossible. True to rule out each of those items individually before doing any replacement of the computers.
  3. OK got it. Makes sense. Smartscreen isn't something I ever enable on IE/Edge etc... But if you nuke it, shouldn't hurt anything I can think of.
  4. Here's an article with the latest version of Office - https://www.groovypost.com/howto/microsoft-word-mac-mail-merge/
  5. No, you shouldn't be getting CERT issues. You should first check with your email admin. And then, I would remove the mailbox from outlook and re-add it again. See if that fixes it.
  6. There are a few tools out there you can search for, however, in most cases, the data will be lost if the ZIP file is corrupted. WinZip has a KB article on how to repair a ZIP file. You might check it out: After installing WinZip, using the following commands: http://kb.winzip.com/kb/entry/126/

    self-introduction

    Welcome to the site Theo. Hope to see you around!
  8. @tlpmap Did they replace your MB or are you still having issues? Although it says it will only work with Windows 8, sometimes the FLASH will still work... You might try it if you're dead in the water..
  9. Hi @JennyR - Nope. Nothing yet. I'm still waiting for MS to fix this. Will keep you updated here however if I find something.

    My Introduction

    Welcome to the forum. Interesting name...
  11. Really depends which services you disabled/stopped. Most of the items I normally turn off are 3rd party tools and software packages which have no business running in the first place at startup. If I want them to run, I'll launch them. Take a screenshot of your services from Task Manager > Startup so we can see what you have Running vs. Disabled. Should be able to assist @harored .
  12. So.... that's not good @tlpmap First, I would start by unplugging everything from the computer except the monitor and keyboard. See if that helps. If not, goto the MSI website and download the latest Motherboard FIRMWARE and flash the board. If you're already running the latest bios, I would still flash it to see if that clears up the issue for you. Something is obviously wrong. Here's a link to the BIOS - https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/support/990FXA-GD80.html#down-bios
  13. Don't forget, you need to set permissions on both the SHARE and the FILES. Be sure you assigned proper rights in both places.
  14. Thnx @Sam Malone - I'm glad you enjoy the blog!
