    cortana taking controll of my laptop


    Cortana opens internet browser pages up to 15 or more. Closes programs I'm trying to use. Plays sounds, voices and other problem things. Making it almost impossible to use the laptop.

    :)

    Cortana Notebook

    In order to enable the Notebook icon in Cortana, I suggest you to check if you have enabled Cortana.

    To enable Cortana, please follow the steps below:

    • Go to Cortana.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Turn on “Cortana can give you suggestions, ideas, reminders, alerts”.

    Hope this helps.

    Cortana Takes long time

    Hi Umesh,

    It might need a little adjustment with the settings. We would suggest following these steps to rectify this issue:

    • If you typed your question to Cortana, she thinks you want the answer displayed rather than spoken. Select themicrophone icon
      in the search box and say something instead.
    • Your speakers might not be working. Search for Device Managerand select the arrow next to
      Sound, video and game controllers. If you don't see a sound card listed, or there's a yellow question mark on the name of the sound card, that may be the problem.
      Get help with sound problems.
    • Your mic might not be set up. Enter set up mic, choose the matching result, and follow the prompts.

    Best Regards.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
