    Win10 Pro Graphic Card issues [COMPLETED]

    I have an almost identical system -- and it works without issue -- but it uses a newer Radeon video card. You can pick up cards that will work for under $50 -- they just won't handle really high res (4K). Mine does HD without problems.

    MS Word

    Sorry no one replied earlier ... First off, MS Word is generally NOT posted by itself, so it you're looking just for that, you're out of luck. Second, you can generally find recent versions of MS Office, either 2019 or 365, in the Windows --> Applications section and those generally also come with an embedded activator tool which you will then have to use after installing Office. And unfortunately, those versions generally do NOT provide the option to select which MS Office component you want to install, so you usually end up installing ALL of it.

    Windows 10 Activate Windows Watermark [COMPLETED]

    It really depends on the activator used, as there is no single answer for this. Tech already gave you a link to one that works. And, I tried the link supplied -- and it works fine for me. Myself, I use either the KMS Activator Ultimate or the KMS Tools by Ratiborus -- but you generally have to search other Warez site and the one I use primarily to get these is down -- again!

    Windows 10 Activate Windows Watermark [COMPLETED]

    The watermark indicates is has not been activated -- so you need to run the activation bypass routine to get rid of that.

    You go to MS and download it: Windows 10 download

    Windows 10 Activate Windows Watermark [COMPLETED]

    The current download from MS -- the only real LEGIT version of Windows -- is 1903, not 1809, and it is available for free from them. As I said, the activators don't care about the specific Win10 versions, so do yourself a favor, get the latest version (1930) and activate it.

    Windows 10 Activate Windows Watermark [COMPLETED]

    According to the screenshot, you are running Win10 v1809 --which is now nearly a year old. The current version of Win10 is 1903 and version 1909 will be out within a month at most. You would do better looking for a 1903 version and installing that. The activation bypass routines don't care which version of Win10 you are running, they work the same, regardless.

    You said "$K" -- you meant "4K", right?

    My New Computer

    Raedwulf: VERY impressive build -- I especially like the colorful keyboard and mouse. And do my eyes deceive me? A new motherboard that ALSO has a PCI slot?? I though all of those died out years ago! I used to use ASUS board myself on all my builds. The last one I used was an A8N32-SLI board which worked great for years and then one day, it just burnt out! I replaced it with a Gigabyte board and have used those, since.

    Want to upgrade from Win 7 Enterpise to 10 Pro

    I'm NOT a huge fan of Win10 myself -- but I've become accustomed to using it and now actually prefer it due to greater familiarization. If I was you, then I would do the following to see if the "migration" from Win7 Ent to Win10 Pro will work out well: 1) Using Macrium Reflect, make an Image backup of Win7 Ent. What I recommend is the following: 1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR) from here: http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx 2) Run MR and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive or USB stick 3) Use the option to create a boot USB stick or CD My experience is that MR, when using the High Compression option, typically can compress the saved image file to about 50% of the USED space in the OS partition. This means if you have an 80GB OS partition, and 40GB is used, MR only needs about 20GB to store the image file. 2) Grab a copy of Laplink PC Mover Pro -- you will use this to create a migration "file" for Win7 apps and settings. If you can't find that here, you will have to search other sites for it -- most likely, Warez-BB would have it. 3) Install Laplink PC Mover Pro and create the Migration File -- I don't remember the details on how to do this, so you will have to do some Googling. Copy the Migration file to a large USB drive. 4) Install Win10 Pro on your PC -- use the option to format the existing OS partition. But, when it prompts for a product key, choose the option to skip that. If MS gives you issues about activation, you might have to disconnect your network from the Internet. You don't need that access for the rest of this. 5) Boot into Win10 and install Laplink PC Mover Pro 6) Insert the USB stick containing the Migration File and start up PC Mover Pro. Select the option to import from the Migration File. This could take a while, so let it run. If all works well, after Laplink is done and you reboot, you should have your settings and apps back from Win7 Ent. Try them out and see how well they work. NOTE: the final parts of this presume you can install and run Laplink without activating Win10. I have not tried that, so I don't know if that will work.

    Upgrading 32-bit to 64-bit

    If it were me, yes; but, they're my wife's apps -- so, no.

    Upgrading 32-bit to 64-bit

    It's not just a matter of the apps not working, it's more a matter of hidden files the apps use that won't work with a clean-install. I did such an install, opened the folders on the Win10 32-bit setup, looked around for hidden files and folders, even saved off and copied Registry entries -- but nonetheless, after all that, some of the really OLD 32-bit apps would still not work. That's why I need to do an in-place Upgrade -- so that I can retain the hidden files/folders and registry settings.

    Upgrading 32-bit to 64-bit

    OK, so before anyone says this can't be done -- I'm well aware of the "official position" on this. But ... I do remember vaguely a while back seeing some hacks posted that would allow you to overwrite the OS and middleware 32-bit libraries with 64-bit and essentially, do an in-place "upgrade" from 32-bit to 64-bit. It was so long ago, that I can't remember where I saw it, nor (despite repeated online searches) can I find that information, anymore. I have an old Win7 32-bit PC whose motherboard I have since replaced with one with a 64-bit processor and tried to Upgrade it to Win10 64-bit, but (of course!) the MS installer would not let me do that, so I had to upgrade it to Win10 32-bit. Doing a clean-install of 64-bit is not a solution -- as I have already tried that and some of the 32-bit apps will not "migrate" to 64-bit, and I even tried using compatibility mode, which does not work for them. I also tried using the well-known "migration" apps of EaseUS and Laplink, and those did not work, either. So, if anyone knows of where I could look for this information, thanks in advance.
  15. With everything plugged into a USB-C hub, it's like using an HP mini -- which is roughly twice the size of the Note. What you are doing is relegating the Note to be the processing unit with all the peripherals plugged into the hub -- essentially the same idea as when I was using a laptop at work with the cover closed but with it, and everything else,plugged into a dock. It's a proven approach -- just different hardware.
