  • Issue#64959: Logitech - m555b Bluetooth pairing issue with Dell Latitude E4300 running Windows 10 64 bits

    Hello, I've been using a m555b Bluetooth for more than 4 years with the same laptop: Win7, Win8, Win8.1 and now Win10 But I currently can't: after the full new installation from scratch, I'm unable to pair it. The Broadcomm "Dell 365 Bluetooth"  module works fine, I've successfully paired an iPhone 5S, a Microsoft Number Pad and an audioset. It properly detects the mouse (including brand and model), when I press the "connect" button under it. But I press the "pair" button on the Bluetooth setting panel on Windows 10, I obtain the warning box "it didn't work - please try again and check your mouse can still be detected" When I press the "close" button and make a new attempt: no further sucess. I remember having suffered such a similar issue with Win8 3 years ago. Please help me!

  • Issue#506418: HP - Refurbished Laptop with no Windows License Key

    Greetings, I just got a refurbished Pavilion laptop. It came with Windows 10 pre-loaded and is in perfect working condition, but they stripped all stickers from it, including the one with the Windows license key. If I purchase the recovery media from HP, will it have the license key, and will it work on my laptop?   I'm awaiting a callback from the refurbisher's customer service department to see if I can get a key from them (I just called a few minutes ago). For the price I paid, I don't mind doing a little legwork to take care of this (including purchasing a new copy of Windows, although I'd rather not if I can avoid it).

  • Issue#712323: windows 10 + SDK 2015.2 License Issue?

    I am currently forced to work with the SDK 2015.2 and everything was working fine until today when windows in its infinite wisdom required a reboot on my machine in order to install updates. Upon completion and rebooting the machine I opened the SDK to continue working. Much to my dismay I was presented with a license error (screencap1) which I thought was strange. I clicked ok and was presented with VLM again to manage the licenses. Upon investigating I can see my license under the "View License Status" but the SDK does not seem to recognize that I have a license. Non the less I attempted to activate my license again with the xml file I downloaded from xilinx and was presented with error #2 (screencap2).   Has anyone encountered an issue similar to this or has an idea on how to fix it?
