  1. Can't Sync Windows and Edge Settings and data after changing Hard Drive


    My SSD where my Windows 10 was installed is gone. It isn't recognized in the bios anymore. So I bought a new SSD, created a media for install a new Windows and installed the new windows on my new SSD. Everything is working well now, the Windows is running perfectly on the new SSD. The problems is that I can't find a way to sync the Windows settings, personalization, apps, edge history data and favorites with my old one! I've tried everything I could think of, I fought that everything was suppose to sync after I entered my Microsoft Account. Is it possible to retrieve my windows settings and

  2. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.

    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Gigabyte motherboard, pc won't bootup after recent hard drive change

    So I've previously had this problem when I added new SATA hard drives to an old one, all I had to do was switch hard disk priority to the one I wanted to boot from. But that's not working right now.

    Error message: AMD Data Change...Update New Data to DMI!
    Specs:
    • Motherboard: Gigabyte ma785gmt-ud2h
    • Four SATA hard drives, three 2tb and one 1tb
    • One IDE hard drive, 160gb
    • 6gb RAM
    • Everything else is the default
    What happened: I had an Amahi home server running on this PC with Ubuntu 12.04LTS as the OS. It was using the four SATA hard drives and everything was running smoothly. Then I read that it's easiest to have a setup where the OS/Amahi is installed on one small hard drive while the large hard drives are used to keep the files on, this makes it easy to update the OS without worrying about the files. So today I installed Ubuntu 12.04LTS on an old IDE 160gb hard drive that I had laying around, which would be perfect to use since there is exactly one IDE port on the motherboard.

    I disconnected all hard drives, connected the IDE, installed Ubuntu, and rebooted. I got a "AMD Data Change...Update New Data to DMI!" message.

    What I tried:
    • Have the IDE be given priority over other hard drives.
    • Connecting all the hard drives back, with and without the IDE hard drive. Same message.
    • Disconnect all hard drives, connect IDE, and set BIO to opimised defaults. Same message.
    • Disconnect CD drive with only IDE attached, same message. Reconnect CD drive, same message.
    • Disconnect CD drive with only SATA attached, same message. Reconnect CD drive, same message.
    • Disconnect CD drive with SATA and IDE attached, same message. Reconnect CD drive, same message.
    • Just IDE connected, mess with the peripheral settings by changing "OnChip SATA Type" to ATHCI, RAID, or IDE. Tried this with "As SATA Type" and with "IDE" set for the port4/5 type
    • Just IDE connected, disable SATA controller
    • Disconnect IDE, reconnect original hard drives. I still get the same DMI message.
    • Attempt to boot from the SATA hard drive that has Ubuntu on it, using each of the SATA ports.
    • Update BIOS to F10B, disabling the "Remember DMI" option. I reconnected all hard drives and the CD drive (the pdf said the 'system' will redetect all devices). Now I got the "AMD Data Change...Update New Data to DMI! Update Success" message, still hanging there. Rebooted, now it's the original message.
    So I am at a loss. Any suggestions?

    Edit: there were many suggestions to try clear the CMOS, however that didn't seem to help the posters. I haven't tried that, but if people suggest I should then I will do so tomorrow.
