Logitech G HUB Installer Won't Launch
Sat, 21 May 2022 19:19:09 +0000

It's happening again on my freshly wiped Windows 11 gaming laptop. Logitech G HUB installer wont launch again. But this time, there is no "Windows installer" processes in Task Manager.

I was trying to install version 2022.02.18. So I went to Logitech G HUB download site to get version 2022.5.263319 that was released on 2022-05-11. But it didn't launch either.

Mozilla Firefox can't find VCRUNTIME140_1.dll
Fri, 20 May 2022 18:18:54 +0000

There is a "vcruntime140.dll" in the "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" installation directory. But there is no "vcruntime140_1.dll". Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox doesn't help.

Funny thing is if I run "dir VCRUNTIME140_1.dll /s" on drive "C:", "vcruntime140_1.dll" is littered all over the place.

Copying one of the "vcruntime140_1.dll" into the "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" installation directory fixed the problem. Firefox runs without any issues after that.

Backup and Restore (Windows 7) - Windows could not find a backup for this computer.
Thu, 19 May 2022 21:07:09 +0000

That's a very common misconception and one that had taken me all night to figure out. I experienced it with Windows 10 and Windows 11, but I'm sure it'd be the same on Windows 7 and Windows 8. The reason Windows 10 and Windows 11 doesn't show the backup is because I've boot into Windows normally on that PC laptop. It can't restore the backup onto the hard drive or SSD while the drive is running the current Windows instance.

To restore the system image, you'd have to boot the PC from the Windows system repair disc that it asked whether you wanted to create after creating a system image.

I didn't have a Windows system repair disc, but I happened to have Windows 8 and Windows 10 set-up disc on USB flash drives. Booting up either of them allows you to restore the system image onto the hard drive or SSD by following these steps:

  1. Choose "Repair your computer" rather than installing Windows.
  2. Select "Troubleshoot".
  3. Select "Advanced options".
  4. Insert the system image drive into another USB port.
  5. Select "System Image Recovery".

Voila! You should see your dated backup image automatically selected for restore.

Windows Laptop Boots Up with 100 Mbps Ethernet, but Switches to 1 Gbps After Disabling and Reenabling Network Adapter
Mon, 14 Mar 2022 02:15:47 +0000

Ok. I have determined all the following has to be set for the network adapter to have a chance of coming up in 1 Gbps mode.

- Advanced EEE: Disabled
- Energy-Efficient Ethernet: Disabled
- Gigabit Lite: Disabled
- Green Ethernet: Disabled
- Power Saving Mode: Disabled
- Speed & Duplex: 1.0 Gbps Full Duplex
- WOL & Shutdown Link Speed: Not Speed Down

I enabled everything other than "WOL & Shutdown Link Speed" and found that I can never get the network adapter to enable in 1 Gbps mode. So it definitely have something to do with the driver and these driver settings.

Lumber Selection: Nominal Size vs. Actual Size
Tue, 01 Mar 2022 08:21:01 +0000

You ever wonder why you bring home a 2x4 lumber only to find out that it's about 1.5" thick and 3.5" wide?

That's because lumber is identified by its nominal size in the stores. The nominal size, which is the rough dimensions before trimming at the lumber mill.

To make your home improvement job easier, refer to the following chart for the nominal sizes and their equivalent actual sizes.

Dropbox Says "Syncing" But Won't Synchronize
Sun, 03 Oct 2021 19:33:09 +0000

My Dropbox has been saying "Sync..." for the last three days. But files hasn't been synchronized. I restarted Dropbox several times and restarted my computer several times. But every time, it just gets stuck at "Sync...".

It wasn't until I noticed that my computer clock was way off that I realized it's due to the computer time. There was a power failure and it must have knocked the time off on my computer. Weird things is that I had set the computer to automatically synchronize with Internet Time.

After going to "Control Panel" -> "Clock, Language, and Region" -> "Date and Time" -> "Internet Time" -> "Change settings...", I clicked "Update now", which synchronizes the computer time with Internet Time.

Once the clock is synchronized, I started Dropbox and it immediately started synchronizing the files.

It's unfortunate that Dropbox doesn't tell me that the computer clock is wrong. I even clicked on its "View sync issues" and it said no error.

Task Scheduler: The operator or administrator has refused the request. (0x800710E0)
Mon, 05 Apr 2021 10:21:29 +0000

Well, "Run with highest privileges" worked for a few days. But today, it stopped working with the same "The operator or administrator has refused the request. (0x800710E0)" error. So I'm at a loss to what is causing it.

Now that I have my system set up with a GSM sim card, does anyone know if the system capable of blocking select inbound text numbers? According to my phone carrier's records, my system is being texted by unauthorized "spam" texts.

Seagate Expansion External Drive Disassembly
Sun, 20 Dec 2020 18:25:04 +0000

I tried a 4 TB drive and it only recognizes 2TB (actually 1.8TB). I am guessing there is a firmware issue on the PCB.
