Hi. This may be out of your field, but...
I am relaunching a small nonprofit. Part of the process is transferring files from a worn out laptop (using now) to a newer refurbished one. I'm using the free version of Auslogics Speed to clean up the old laptop before transferring data to new. We will be subscribing to the paid version for the newer laptop after I get the transfer done.
In the past, I've had to have someone transfer data using specific cables. Is there an Auslogics or other software that can be used to do the transfer without hardwiring? Novice here techwise. And, it's always been my experience that no matter how successful the data transfer, the folder and files have to be manually reconstructed. A work-around would be great.
I need t leave home now but will return about 4:30 Pacific. Yes, I know that's asking a lot, so I appreciate whatever you can share about the challenges I'm facing.
I have tried a few "fixes", e.g.
In Startup and recovery, used "Restart" for clean start,
Start in "Safe Mode",
Untick "Automatic restart",
Removed or substituted all devices, hard drives plus mouse and keyboard, even monitor and RAM, except Graphics card - no fix. Defragged and scanned hard drives for errors.
Pressed power button with power disconnected.
Re-installed Windows and updated.
All fans and heatsinks not clogged with dust.
Edited Registry = "No Auto Reboot With Logged On User"!
I have recent system images saved but none before the problem started!
Any suggestions? Thank you, David
I had some problems installing Win 10 updates. The problem keeps recurring and I would like information from your support.
You may find this error code helpful: (0x80080005), which is the message that keeps popping up:
The device is missing important security and quality patches!
Just installed my Driver Updater on my new PC and after updating the drivers and a required restart I get a Bluescreen with the message "Inacessible Boot Device" adn restarting does not help, nor does turning the desktop off and on again.
What to do now?
PS: The "Device" above is probably incorrect as I'm writing this from my laptop.
I use a Dell Latitude with an SSD drive. I note that some people recommended that the SSD should not be defragged as it can cause unnecessary wear and tear which will reduce its life span. Every time I run Boot speed it attempts to defrag the SSD. Two questions – (1) Does it really shorten the life of a SSD if it is defragged on a regular basis and (2) If I chose not to defrag how I stop this from happening other than every time manually untick the defrag box prior to hitting the “resolve all” button.
Many thanks in advance for your response.
2. Хорошо ли делать дефрагментацию реестра при перезагрузке компъютера с SSD ? (Меня фсегда очень интересовал этот вопрос).
If I have to restart, it takes 20 minutes or more to load completely. I have basically nothing in startup and can't figure out what is making this take so long. It's the same whether a restart or new start. The hard drive is only a little over half full with lots of pictures. Logically it has to be in either ASUS or windows (10). It's very frustrating and because it takes so long to load, I leave it running. For quite a few years I paid for a service that cleaned the system once a month and helped with any problem. I am no longer using it as it was expensive and even though I stressed the startup time issue, they never improved it.
You can see a lot about the machine, but it doesn't say it's an ASUS 15" laptop, purchased in September of 2014, model R510LAVS51 with core i5
I didn't know if you needed this, but I'd rather give you unnecessary information than have you come back to me.
thanks so much
I run the rescue undo, and it still does not allow voice recgnition to run. I have to reinstall windows to get it to work. I have excluded Microsofts Speech folder from appdata and protected several keys in the registry to try to prevent this. Nothing I do seems to resolve the situation.
