  1. license problem


    Ky Samsung labtop came with windows 8. It upgraded for free to windows 10. But when it was send to a repairshop, it came back with windows 10 pro on it. And now it shows 'your windows license will expire soon'. I think that the windows 8 installation files are still on the hard drive. But when I reset, it steps up immediately to this windows pro. I saved the product key with: 'wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey and press the return key. This will check if you have a valid manufacturers licence key in the bios of the motherboard.'

    My first question is: Can I do a re-install of the upgrade windows 8 to windows 10 and have a licensed windows 10 on it?

    My second question is: If the repair shop could erase the installation and put a windows 8.1 copy on it, using the product key that I have, would it then upgrade to a licensed windows 10?


    HELP!

    :)

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...


    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.

    Intel Could License AMD Radeon iGPU Tech for Future Processors

    personally i think this is no different than what nvidia and intel doing right now with their current cross licensing deal. intel have been licensing nvidia IP for years and yet their gpu did not work like nvidia gpu at all. in another forum i see one of intel graphic engineer talking about the deal with nvidia is more about letting intel develop their own gpu without illegally stepping into nvidia existing IP and not about integrating nvidia tech into their gpu.

    though what kyle been suggesting is something quite different. he said it is not a simply licensing it is more like intel want the entire RTG for themselves. means no more AMD radeon. but intel radeon instead.

    Need some advice on computer problems.

    Run HDtune (free version) on you hard drive. but most likely that the problem. You can also test your memory with Memtest86 as suggested above
