What is Elevated Mode?


I have been getting a blue screen a lot. I have run all the hardware diagnostics and everything checks out ok. I tried to run chkdsk from a c prompt but I get the message "Access denied as you do not have sufficient privileges. You have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode."
This is my home computer and I am the only one using it so I have not set up any user accounts. Why don't I have full privileges? Attached Thumbnails   Share Share this post on Digg Del.icio.us Technorati Twitter

Start Orb > All Programs > Accessories > Right click command prompt and choose run as administrator
Then you should be able to run chkdsk
You'll be confronted with a message something to the effect that the volume cannot be locked do you want to run at next startup, simply type a "Y" and hit enter and reboot
Hope this helps
And welcome to the forums.

On this site I found a hack to turn off the Metro UI and once that is done what is left is Windows 7. Is that all Windows 8 is? With the Tiles running as a application?

Also, once the Metro UI is turned off where do you find all of the same apps that appear on it?

Hello everyone! I'm new here

Recently, my computer always had BSOD. It started with a freeze on my computer, cursors are not moving, suddenly the screen go blank and voila, BSOD! I have already attached the minidump file, can anyone tell me what causes blue screen on my computer?

I don't know if this is related, but a few days ago, I updated my display driver from optional updates from Windows Update, I think the BSODs start after this. Then, I tried to install the driver from ATI website, still had the blue screen, reinstall the display driver, still had it

Hope anyone can help me... Attached Files 071011-17472-01.dmp (1.46 MB, 133 views) Share Share this post on Digg Del.icio.us Technorati Twitter

Hi all.

I can't work out what is causing the BSOD. I've overclocked most of my components and they are all appropriately cooled. Not sure if this is a software issue or not.

Can anyone analyse for me? Seven Forums.rar

General Question - I think I've tweaked the system about as far as I can know how to do right now - disabled Aero - done other things using Black Vipers tweaks and configurations and still at startup Win7 is running 350 megs. I like Win7 and memory is sort of a problem as I only have 1gig - but it runs OK as I am not a big multi-tasker. I play only one game - EA Sports MVP Baseball 2005 as there is 161 games in a season and it never ends - so you cannot look at the internet while you play - just one task at a time.

XP though would sit at 89 megs - so what is Win7 doing it needs that much memory for? My user experience for the computer is 2.4 based on the Aero theme - but for business graphics and gaming it is 3.2.

System old but works OK

AMD 64 - 3200+ Athlon 2.0 Ghz
1 gig memory
319 meg available graphic memory - 128 meg dedicated

Disk rating is 5.9

Any thoughts of getting the memory down?

Thanks

I discovered what is called the $RECYCLE.BIN on a SimpleTech portable disk drive I use. It does not show up in the disk folder/file listing, but I can scan for it in the 'Find' routine (*recycle*.*)). What I am concerned with is that it may contain deleted files that need to be purged, but I can't see how to look at this $RECYCLE.BIN or delete any possible files. Anyone know what this $RECYCLE.BIN is and how to access it?Thanks.

Hi guys.
What is the REAL true status of build 7048. Reading some of the various rumours apparently Microsoft hasn't even STARTED on 7048.

Now if it's a FAKE it's got to be a really good one -- I doubt whether any even experienced hacker could integrate the proper final version if IE8 into the build plus a few other documented changes in build 7048 -- and in any case what would be the point.

"Cloning" a previous build and labelling it 7048 is another matter but there are significant differenced between 7000, 7022 and 7042 to discount this possibility. People also get wise to that one very quickly.

AFAIK it IS genuine.

(This post refers to the 64 bit versions only -- haven't tried the leaked 7022 / 7048 32 bit builds so I can't say).

Cheers
jimbo
