  1. Various problems, including downloading and activation issues

    About a month ago, I got 3 months free of Xbox Game Pass from Discord Nitro, and I went to download the Xbox app, but it didn't download. The installer just said "Making things awesome..." forever. I thought maybe I was downloading the wrong one and I went to download it from the Windows Store, but that didn't budge either.

    I gave up and forgot about it, until a few weeks ago when I was looking around in the settings and noticed my computer hasn't updated in a while. I tried to update it, but it never did. It never found anything, and it would just go endlessly for a while until eventually I got error code 0x80080005. I looked up solutions and tried everything I could find and nothing works. I also tried the troubleshooter, but that didn't do anything either. I tried to fix the Microsoft Store problem by running WSreset.exe, but it's completely blank in the command prompt. I thought the problem was the antivirus, as one of the websites I checked said it could be, but that wasn't it either. I gave up again and figured I'll just live with it.

    But today, when I went to check if it worked now, I saw that now it says that Windows just straight up ISN'T ACTIVATED. But here's the problem- I AM activated. I have been since I got the computer. And if I try to go to the activation settings to put my product key back in, the settings app just freezes. I have no idea what is causing this.

    Another thing, I got an idea that it could be a problem with a setting on my internet modem that I changed not too long ago, but it wasn't that either. However, when I was looking around the settings, I saw that on the IPv4 Firewall settings, Traffic In was turned OFF for Windows Messaging and Windows Service. I don't know what this could mean, but I would like to know.

    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.

    New here and seeking for help: problems with graphic card

    Thanks very much lilhasselhoffer. I'll start doing what you suggested step by step.

    One question thou: you suggested me to Download the latest driver package from Nvidea. However, the link you posted is for the newly released GeForce GTX 760? Am I supposed to download the drivers for that card?

    Sorry for my questions. As I said, I'm not an expert at all.
