I went to Windows 10 finally (RANT)
« on: January 11, 2018, 11:00:14 am »
I am frustrated with Windows 10. I can go back to Win 7 since I still have the original DVD but .. I know eventually I would have to go to Win 10 and I would not be able to afford to buy it. Microsoft offered Win 10 still til the end of 2017 under the exception of people who want the accessibility options that did NOT come with original Win 10. I took the opportunity and oddly enough no where does it ask what accessibility options you needed to verify this. It was just to get more people a chance to go to Win 10 because they really want everyone on board. I figured as much though.

Anyway my printer won't work. The Lexmark 1290 I bought ink for. Put it in. it said it could not detect the USB. I unplugged it and tried another port. Same issue. I know it is not my USB then. I did a search online. Guess what?  WINDOWS 10 does NOT SUPPORT LEXMARK 1290! THIS is what I was worried about! I was worried that some of my hardware would not work but people reassured me that everything that worked with Win 7 would work no problem with Win 10 and that was absolutely NOT true obviously!

It says:

You will have to upgrade your printer. Click here to visit the Lexmark store to find a recommended printer. Also, read about all the new printing and document workflow solutions available.

We attempt to provide support for legacy products based on consumer demand and the continued evolution of technology standards. Support for legacy products is eventually withdrawn as we continue to focus on products with new standards and operating system capabilities such as XPS.

http://support.lexmark.com/index?productCode=LEXMARK_X1290&page=product&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US#1

I posted my question to Microsoft here:

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/how-can-i-get-my-lexmark-x1290-all-in-one-printer/1d8ec704-3fa4-4d82-9571-32bdcb06a88e?tm=1515686124835


So what do I do with this ink? I don't have enough money to fork out for ink for the printer I use just for faxing! At least I DO have that thanks to my mom but I felt bad that I got this printer (you know Sand) when my mom got that one for me and I was like but .. okay well I do need a fax I will just use it to fax (which I have for the last few years to fax things to disability).  The thing is if I KNEW that the Lexmark 1290 would NOT work with WIN 10 I would NOT h ave spent $60 on both Black and Colour ink!! I am NOT happy! The other printer is my EPSON WF-2540. Hmmm. wonder if IT is even supported ...

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/SupportWindows10.jsp

Well THAT is not a good sign .. page not found.. great...

This is my other printer I don't have hooked up to the computer as it is only used for fax. I had it connected to the wifi but when I was having net issues Dave told me to disconnect the router in case it was that. I would have to BUY ink and test to see if that printer even works .. I am not in the mood or have the money to buy ink just to see if it will work with Windows 10 ...

https://epson.com/Support/Printers/All-In-Ones/WorkForce-Series/Epson-WorkForce-WF-2540/s/SPT_C11CC36201#drivers

Espon doesn't have as easy to follow directions. Just download this drive .. basically good luck. Try it. So I would have to buy ink. Not happy. So I was supposed to print out a list of my hospital expenses for disability and now can't :(

This is the ink for the Epson .. not as expensive as the Lexmark but it is also not just 2 things of ink neither. Still I only really need the black ..  https://epson.com/i/C11CC36201

Maybe I should just do it .. I just am so frustrated though and needed to vent! Might have to get Dave over here ...

That was why I never stepped up to windows 10.  Because I know that I have some hardware that is not supported by the new version of windows.  Namely my sound card and printer.  But hey, the only good part of windows 10 upgrade is that it can be uninstalled.  :tup:

 Yeah, not great support for slightly older stuff (eg. a couple of years) might be able to get away with a 8.1 driver after jumping thru a few hoops if it's available. I'd probably have to research it a bit. Might be a couple things to try, don't lose all hope yet.

Thank you Dave! that is EXTREMELY helpful!! I brought over the Lexmark to my mom as I said I would on the phone to you and she is going to use it to print things like recipes since I had just bought brand new ink. Now that clears off the printer platform of my desk for the Epson that is in the living room so now I will be using that in here. I will do that tomorrow though as I just got home from my mom's not too long about and am tired.

Well, for me.  I have the creative labs sound blaster X-FI extreme gamer PCI sound card.  The last known drivers made for it are for windows Vista.  But it's able to run on windows 7 using backwards compatibility.  There is no known support for it in windows 10.

For the last few days my Logitech G110 Keyboard has been acting up .. suddenly my backspace key and my Ctrl key .. things like that wont work ... Alt works though. Last time it did that I had to reboot the computer for it to work. Posting this here as this is only something that started happening with Windows 10. Is it another thing that is not compatible? I am tired of this and really thinking of going back to Win 7 as they say that now that I have the key I can always go to Win 10 in the future. I am so fed up with this Win 10!! It is CRAP! People who say they love it have money for the latest shit and / or don't do much on their computer but do Facebook which really is only dependent on your browser being up to date and most people seem to use the MICROSOFT EDGE browser that comes with Windows 10 anyway ...

I did look up some information that this is a known issue a few people are having .. not just me so it is not because of the spilled milk years ago ...

I don't have time to read all this as I am going to my brother to fix my door frame but for now these are links I ran across and will read them later when I get back to see which are relevant.

Odd thing .. seems to be related to Firefox ESR as when I went to upload a picture to the forums I was able to hit backspace no problem. This is a mystery. Want to help me figure this out? Should I start a new thread called THE MYSTERY OF KT's KEYBOARD?  ;D

 If you have the netbook handy you could try the keyboard on it. if it does the same, it's the keyboard.

Seems like it might be a driver issue.  And yes, the G110 and my G510 require extra drivers for the lighting controls and programmable macro keys.  But for the most part, the general keyboard should work as intended.  I've been having a problem with my keyboard too on Win7, but ONLY when I am playing dragonball xenoverse 2.  The problem is sometimes a number of keys get remapped to do other functions (example, Ctrl gets remapped to toggle page) or a handful of keys get removed from the games config file and get reset to default.  And this has been reported to happen more so in Win10.

A quick fix some of us have found for the crazy key remapping is to close or minimize all programs, such as the game or browser or whatever, and then toggle the windows key a couple of times.  Seems to have a very high success rate.

I agree that it is a driver issue most likely because it would not be the key board itself since it works elsewhere but not in the browser after awhile (always does at first). I just installed the latest driver while I was gone so I just rebooted now. We will see.

Okay if it happens again I will try that thanks :)
