Windows 8.1 Pro
« on: May 25, 2015, 01:23:39 pm »
I just bought a new notebook, finally broke down and did it. My old Dell was pretty damn old but still works great, nothing wrong with it but my daughter really needs one for this academic camp she's going to in a few weeks so I gave it to her. Anyway, this HP came with Windows 8.1 Pro and I'm completely fvcking lost. In years past I was able to poke around and figure things out but this is fvcking impossible. I'm trying to install my printer and the motherfvcker doesn't recognize it. I installed the drivers, even went online looking for newer drivers and there aren't any. And what's worse, I cant even find the motherfvcking USB ports in the device manager! I've done HP searches, Windows searches, absolutely nothing tells me where I can manually access my USB ports. In years past with older versions of Windows I could open up the Control Panel or Windows Explorer, scroll down to every port, open it, and that was that. I'm so fvcking exasperated. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. TIA

Yeah but when I go to add my printer it doesn't recognize it. When this would happen in the past I would just access the port and bypass Windows but I can't find the ports. They're not in the control panel or device manager.

I have Windows 8.1 and when I go to Device Manager in the Control Panel and click on USB Controllers it lists out all of the ports available.  Right click and you can install/update the driver.  If that doesn't work I can't help you.  Sorry.

Perhaps you can call India.  :lol

Windows 8 is Frisbee Shit.

Many of them still use windows 2003 servers.
