Ben Voigt http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/29943 2014-02-06T20:31:56Z 2018-10-22T11:35:43Z <p>I've just ordered a Haswell laptop with a 2.5" SATA hard disk. According to the service manual it has an mSATA slot (there are also Ultrabooks where a 24GB SSD is pre-installed and pre-configured as cache using Intel SRT).</p> <p>I'm planning to install a 240GB mSATA SSD and use part as SRT cache and part as the boot disk. Some of my SSD options (notably the Samsung 840 EVO and Crucial M500) have support for Opal managed full-disk encryption. The corresponding feature in Windows 8.1 is "Microsoft eDrive", part of BitLocker.</p> <p>Can both these technologies be used on the same drive? If so, what is the correct order to enable them?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/885622 0 ShrewSoft VPN client no longer works on Windows 8.1 x64 Nestor http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/224490 2015-03-04T21:33:54Z 2018-10-22T10:00:30Z <p>I used ShrewSoft VPN to access a few work computers.</p> <p>A few days ago the password has been changed so I have changed it at the credentials settings.</p> <p>Since that time, I cannot connect to any of the work computers but <em>all of my co-workers can</em>.</p> <p>There are 2 scenarios:</p> <ul> <li>When trying to connect, I get this message: </li> </ul> <blockquote> <p>negotiation timout occurred</p> </blockquote> <p>Here is the IKE service log for it:</p> <pre><code>15/03/04 22:12:55 ii : rebuilding vnet device list ... 15/03/04 22:12:55 ii : device ROOT\VNET\0000 disabled 15/03/04 22:12:55 ii : network process thread begin ... 15/03/04 22:12:55 ii : pfkey process thread begin ... 15/03/04 22:12:55 ii : ipc server process thread begin ... 15/03/04 22:13:01 ii : ipc client process thread begin ... 15/03/04 22:13:01 &lt;A : peer config add message 15/03/04 22:13:01 &lt;A : proposal config message 15/03/04 22:13:01 &lt;A : proposal config message 15/03/04 22:13:01 &lt;A : client config message 15/03/04 22:13:01 &lt;A : local id 'myserver.company.com' message 15/03/04 22:13:01 &lt;A : preshared key message 15/03/04 22:13:01 &lt;A : remote resource message 15/03/04 22:13:01 &lt;A : peer tunnel enable message 15/03/04 22:13:01 DB : peer added ( obj count = 1 ) 15/03/04 22:13:01 ii : local address 192.168.0.100 selected for peer 15/03/04 22:13:01 DB : tunnel added ( obj count = 1 ) 15/03/04 22:13:01 DB : new phase1 ( ISAKMP initiator ) 15/03/04 22:13:01 DB : exchange type is aggressive 15/03/04 22:13:01 DB : 192.168.0.100:500 &lt;-&gt;

The issues when it first started occurring did not happen frequently, so I mostly ignored, however recently I've noticed my keyboard giving issues more often. My pc's operating system is Windows 8.1. I get the following symptoms randomly:</p> <ol> <li><p>When turning on my computer or waking it up from sleep, the keyboard will sometimes become unresponsive and the only way to make it work is by unplugging and plugging it back into the pc.</p></li> <li><p>The keys on the keyboard will become electronically stuck when waking from sleep mode or a cold bootup. This does not happen to just one key, it will randomly happen to any key where it will get stuck and the only way to fix is unplugging and plugging back in.</p></li> <li><p>The main keys on the keyboard will work fine, but any special keys that the keyboard has (such as changing the volume) will not function properly. When this occurs, I notice that in the control panel under view devices it displays my keyboard with an error about the driver on it. If I try to fix the driver, nothing happens, but the second that I unplug and replug the error goes away and all of a sudden there is no more "bad driver."</p></li> </ol> <p>I've already played around with the power settings on my computer to see if it may be a power setting that is affecting my keyboard, but that has not worked. Also, I've checked in the device manager, and have even tried reverting the driver on the keyboard to an older version of the driver before the issue became prevalent. The only temporary fix right now that always works is unplugging the keyboard and plugging it back in, however I want to see if there's a way to truly fix the problem. I'm not sure if I just have hardware failure and my keyboard's about to give out on me. Would anyone have any suggestions or ideas on what I could try?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/937013 4 Override localhost IP Adress in Windows 8.1 Adam McCormick http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/466332 2015-07-06T17:44:53Z 2018-10-17T12:02:25Z <p>I'm trying to set up Windows 8.1 virtual machine through VirtualBox for testing a server running on my Mac (running Yosemite 10.10.3). VirtualBox sets up a the IP 10.0.2.2 to point to the host machine's localhost (where the server is running). To connect to a remote server with fairly specific CORS constraints, I need to point the guest OS's localhost to that address. I've tried adding an entry to the `C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts file, but while it works for other strings (like 'test' and 'foo') it doesn't work for localhost. I've run across a couple threads (<a href="https://serverfault.com/questions/4689/windows-7-localhost-name-resolution-is-handled-within-dns-itself-why">https://serverfault.com/questions/4689/windows-7-localhost-name-resolution-is-handled-within-dns-itself-why</a>) that obliquely refer to this functionality being moved into the DNS resolver, but not how to change it beyond saying that it's in group policy somewhere.

My microphone config is an XLR microphone connected to a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio interface. This equipment works fine for any other application requiring a microphone. It shows up in the Windows Sound settings under the Recording section as "Line In", but the fine people down at Rosetta Stone decided to program their application in such a way that you can <em>only</em> use <strong>microphone</strong> inputs and it won't let you select a line input. My input is a line input... </p> <p>I had been using a rig with <a href="http://software.muzychenko.net/eng/vac.htm" rel="nofollow noreferrer">Virtual Audio Cable</a> and <a href="http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/Voicemeeter/banana.htm" rel="nofollow noreferrer">Voicemeeter</a> that allowed me to run my microphone through Voicemeeter and out into a Virtual Audio Cable which I configured to be labeled as a <strong>microphone</strong> input. This worked wonderfully, but unfortunately I had to switch from Virtual Audio Cable to <a href="http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/Cable/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">VB-Cable</a> because it caused instability on my system (occasional BSODs). Unfortunately, VB-Cable does not allow you to set its output as a microphone line. </p> <p>So here I am... is it possible to reassign a line device as a microphone device?

The Microsoft BT Stack was not pre-installed into my PC and the Toshiba BT Stack hangs on 5 bars in the installation and it never moves (I've left it there for a day, no progress). It was working back when I was in Feltham but now I'm in Bedfont and it doesn't progress. I've used WiinUSoft, WiinUPro, vJoy and the Direct Xbox 360 Driver for Windows.

Then one day after starting it up (out of sleep mode) Windows shows as connected to the VMware network, and the internet does not work. I disabled the adapter it was connected to and everything worked fine again. </p> <p>Next time I started my computer up, it was the same problem, but this time disabling the adapter did not fix it. When I disabled all the adapters Windows shows the "connections available" icon, but when I try to connect to my home wifi all it says is "Can't connect to the network". I've reset the router, same problem, but I am able to connect to my phone's hotspot wifi network.</p> <p>I've uninstalled VMware, reinstalled it, did a repair, nothing. I've uninstalled and reinstalled all the network adapters under Device Manager, still nothing.</p> <p>Does anyone have a solution for this?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/943837 5 "Working on features // 100% complete" stuck, can't reboot user568458 http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/112639 2015-07-22T12:10:29Z 2018-10-12T07:00:23Z <p>I booted my Windows 8.1 machine up as normal this afternoon, after having shut it down normally the night before.

This has an integrated Intel HD GPU. The tablet has an micro HDMI port at which i want to attach a tv. But on the tv i only get a signal with an huge overscan (black frame around the screen).</p> <p>I checked the reason for that: my tablet runs at a resolution of 1280x800 which is the same resolution i selected for the tv (hdmi port). But the tv says it gets a 1920x1080 resolution. And in this HD image is the tablet screen centered.</p> <p>I tried multiple configurations and settings, but the only way in which i get a fullscreen image on the tv is when i set 1920x1080 as a resolution. Which is bad because i can't use the tablet screen in full hd. I already un/installed the newest driver multiple times.</p> <p>I also tried this solution: <a href="http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-029478.htm" rel="nofollow noreferrer">http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-029478.htm</a> but the customModeApp will not work with the newest drivers anymore.</p> <p>I have searched the intel forum for hours, where multiple pepole reported the same issue. Unfortunately without an real solution.</p> <p>So you guys are my last hope on getting this issue fixed.</p> <p>Has anyone an idea how to solve this problem?
