    Welcome to the Tech Problems thread!
    What is it about?
    Several times I saw on various non-related threads people asking advices for their devices having problems, looking for solutions. This thread aim is to be a meeting point for people who've got a problem and other people who can help about solving that problem.

    How does it work?
    Simple, if you're having a problem with your PC, phone, tablet, washing machine, ... just post here what it is about with the more details you can. Probably there will be other people who can help you, if there aren't you're unlucky!

    Can I help you in this project?
    Everyone can help, just reply and solve people's problems if you know how to solve them! :)

    I hope this thread can become useful for some people!
    If you've some tips for me leave them in a private message, let's keep this thread clean from off-topic please! ;)

    I can't connect my windows computer to my printer. It says I need to do it from within an app. What does that mean? Do I need to get a gmail app to print an email?

    Ok, is there any way around the stupid Kit Kat SD card issue, without rooting? I'm getting really tired of not being able to download directly to SD. My phone only has 3 gigs of space left for Geez sake.

    Windows 7 because I dont have touch screen, and I really dislike the windows 8 layout. If I had touch screen I would reluctantly use win8.

    i like 8 because of the speed improvements even on desktops and some of the shortcuts and gestures like the search bar.

    thats an odd issue, don't think I can help you with that.

    8, despite not having a touchscreen. Trust me, It grows on you man, that charms bar is like crack! Perhaps its just because I learned to use it with a mouse but, the touch gestures just feel weird to me whenever I try a touch laptop out lol.

    There's no real fix because it's built into the code of 4.4 as a "security" feature. The only way I know of is by obtaining root, because it's the only way of accessing program code. There's a really nice article here, and a a good app if you obtain root.

    That's what I figured. I really don't want to root, so I guess I'll just deal with it. Thank you for your response.

    But Win8 is just a faster Win7 with the Metro UI

    @Digitalghost you should really consider root! It allows you to improve everything basically.

    I'm guessing this issue is with Windows 8?

    I have heard of people having problems with Wireless printers when upgrading to win 8.1.
    Try reinstalling your drivers and software for your printer.
    If that doesn't work it may be that your device discovery & sharing has been turned off.

    Mine used to do that as well, but after I installed CM in it. Performance, battery life etc has dramatically improved.

    200mb is free space not enough!
    my n4 needs at least 400mb, I can only guess but I think it is because android uses a lot of cache files for smooth scrolling and so on and than there are a lot of other invisible stuff that needs space.. (maybe ns@ or so :D )
    however after all the time with my nexus I found no way to change this so I think it's an operating system thing which can not be solved by a simple user.

    Was redirected here from a previous thread: I Hardbricked a Samsung Galaxy SIII SCH-R530c (Cricket LTE) running CM11 nightlies (latest for Cricket) and tried flashing Googy Max Kernel (The wrong version). It is a hard brick, it does not respond to any input besides removing the battery and connecting it to usb (i.e. the red LED turns on). Any hope besides a JTAG? I do have a Class 10 32GB sd card but not the right image in order to boot it off the Ext.SD if that helps at all.
