  1. Custom PC doesn't always wake up or boot correctly


    Hello. A few weeks ago I bought a custom built PC from my coworker that he had been using for work for the last few years. I've run into a couple issues that, as far as I know, didn't exist when he owned it.


    First of all, when I wake it up from sleep the fans turn on and the GPU lights up but the display never shows up. The lights on my mouse light up if I click but the keyboard lights never turn on. I've tried unplugging the monitor's power and video cables but that doesn't fix it. Ultimately I have to do a hard reset which leads into the second problem.


    When I turn the PC back on the display shows up and the BIOS boots. When it gets to the Windows logo it hangs and the spinning dots don't show up. I have to do another hard reset then on the next boot everything works fine and I can use the PC normally. This happens regardless of whether I put it to sleep or shut it down properly. It;s pretty consistent and seems like every other boot fails.


    My coworker performed a reset before he gave it to me and I did another one a week ago to see if it would fix anything, so I'm not sure it's a Windows issue but the fact it fails to load is my only clue. I've also tried the troubleshooter in Advanced Startup but it said there were no issues, the most recent Windows updates are installed and Device Manager doesn't find any drivers to update.


    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?

  3. Double Tap doesn`t work on Lumia 620

    Hello,

    Double Tap to wake doesn`t work at my Lumia 620. I have all on in settings but still doesn`t work. I`m pretty sure that in update AMBER or BLACK this function works properly. But after DENIM update doesn`t. Maybe you are planning some update for this future
    ?

    Thanks

  4. Custom PC doesn't always wake up or boot correctly

    Windows Edge still doesn`t work correctly

    It is now 6 weeks since I upgraded to 10 and Windows Edge still does not work correctly.

    I cannot download anything with Edge (or ie11). It includes all sites eg, Microsoft, Logitech, Epson etc.

    Dynamic links do not work and it doesn`t remember my log-in details although it asks if I want it to remember them.

    Favourites do not get put on the favourites bar although I click on that option.

    I have done all the advice I`ve been given, ie disable anti-virus etc.

    Why do they have a Windows support tile if it doesn`t work?

    Can anybody help me?
