Question

Desktop and taskbar regularly flashing after cloning to SSD

by Jumiric / February 22, 2014 1:54 AM PST

I just installed a Samsung 840 Pro SSD and now my desktop and taskbar flash blank every ~90 seconds, any windows up are not affected. The icons are the only things that seem to flash, my background stays. I'm also getting a strange error about SkyDrive every 5-10 minutes that goes away too quickly to read. AVG did not find any viruses. I'm pretty new with this kind of thing so I'm pretty sure I broke it.

Here's my dxdiag

Clarification Request
Something odd about that Windows version.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / February 22, 2014 5:32 AM PST

Windows 8.1 Evaluation Version 9600 The Latest Version of Windows 8.1

I also read about this version being cracked. As this may be some eval version all bets are off. Take it back to the source?

Why the data dump?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / February 22, 2014 1:57 AM PST

Long opening posts like this make replies harder as you have to scroll through all that.

But in short, almost all SSD clone jobs may be missing a SSD firmware update or an app like Intel's RST.

My replies will be shorter as all that above is going to make replies more work.

Is in your make and model. You chose to lead with a data dump and not a summary.

As to Intel's RST I found that with google. I know folk explode when told to google it so let's see if that's good enough or just upsetting.

I see nothing there. It looks like you were willing to just dump and run and hope folk will not comment. These are all volunteer forums so work a little to make a good post.

Every time I've looked for computer help in a forum, I was asked to post that stuff. All of the Google results I've been through so far are not talking about the same thing. I'll be sure to read cnet's forum etiquette after this is fixed.

From HDD to SSD.

I'd add Intel's SSD at the very very least.

Your last post reveals something I run into once in a while. Folk are looking for an exact match to the trouble or symptom which may be rare.

Here I'm going to offer my experience about SSD and what is often missed. Well we could start a fresh install but why not try the usual first?

Then we can dive into other things.

Buy another drive. Wish I could. Don't search for the problem I am having and try to reinstall. I don't have windows discs and Samsung's copy software deletes the data on the original drive.

" All of the Google results I've been through so far are not talking about the same thing. "

My reply is about an item that might be absent on the original OS by the OEM.

-> Your comment about Windows discs is odd. We have a few Samsungs and they do let us make restore media. And the discussion about Windows discs is rather well worn. Those can cost a lot.

Desperation sets in

In reply to: That was a TYPO.

I have AMD, when I downloaded the installer, it told me it wasn't compatible.

My searching has led me to believe that I may have some kind of virus, "InternetHelper3.1" in my browser.

And could I use the os media install, wipe both drive and possibly make this all go away? I'm afraid to make this worse while looking for solutions.
