2 RepliesPC requirements for Windows 8
Microsoft released its latest operating system Windows 8 last year and is an operating system embedded with many features and functions. In this new operating system, Microsoft tried a new interface called Metro user interface. Windows 8 is equipped with many features making it the most versatile OS that Microsoft has ever produced. However, in order to run Windows 8 on your computer, there are certain computer specifications required. You will be able to run Windows 8 in some computers but the users will not be able to access some specific features. To know more about Windows 8 requirements, refer the full article.
First of all, to run Windows 8, your system or laptop should have at least 1GHz processor. Having greater processor in your system will help you to get an improved experience while working with it. Mostly, AMD, Core i3, i4, i5, or i7 processors are required to run Windows 8. Ivy Bridge processor released by Intel in the year April 2012 is a processor that offers efficient power consumption. Moreover, this processor can be used to run both light and thin systems. A version of Windows is about to be released by Microsoft, which will help the users to run Windows 8 on ARM”s SOC (system on chip) processors.
Windows 8 32 bit requires a RAM memory of 1GB and for the 64 bit, a minimum of 2 GB RAM memory is required. If you need to function your computer without crashing, then never compromise upon RAM memory. Try to get the maximum for your Windows 8 computer but keep in mind that a 3GB RAM is maximum for 32 bit and 20GB for 64 bit. A minimum memory is required for smooth functioning and you will soon run out of space once you start saving things.

A Microsoft DirectX 9 or higher graphics system is required by Windows 8 to run. If you want to experience high quality gaming experience, then never compromise on the graphics card.

Leave a reply Microsoft Chat Support
Microsoft has stated that it is planning to ship developer preview kits of its brand new Kinect technology so that it benefits the development of Windows sensor solutions as well as software applications. Kinect was created mainly to be an accessory for the Xbox 360 video game console. But now Microsoft has expanded its use. The underlying implication in the opinion of the Microsoft chat support team here is that they are attempting to get the new Kinect and code to run it into the hands of developers along with the introduction of Xbox One.
Xbox One brings the living room version of the latest Kinect to the common man. Microsoft has also stated that many developers have chosen to sign up for the program. That is not something to be taken lightly as it costs $399 to be able to participate. Developers who are given the pre-release Kinect shall also receive the final Kinect for Windows device.
Kinect for Windows refers to a technology that most people greatly admire. To add voice or motion control to the computer, which is likely to already have the touch screen option as well as the mouse and keyboard input is indeed great. Efforts to bring out similar technology are under way at Leap Motion.
In truth, Kinect for Windows as opposed to the Xbox based products continues to be a developer toy which is apt for experimentation and not for daily use. Purchase a Kinect for Windows sensor. If you do not know how to code, there is nothing more that you can do other than examine the device closely.
Microsoft Chat Center
According to the Microsoft chat support team, it is also important to bear in mind that no platform is ever created ready for the next generation technology. If we ever try to inculcate elements of Kinect into the laptop screens as well as desktop monitors, it is necessary that we incubate the technology for it somehow. Contained in the software side of the new Kinect is a brand new SDK, which supports all the things which the second generation Kinect hardware is expected to bring in, particularly as far as data is concerned.
Should you seek more information with respect to the Kinect hardware, contact the Microsoft chat support center online. Visit the official Xbox website, to know about the use of the technology in the gaming console.

Leave a reply Windows live
With the introduction of Skype, Microsoft announced the retirement of their age old instant messaging client Windows Live Messenger. All users of messenger who are outside China will no longer be able to get the services of the instant messaging client that they have used for long as it is being replaced by the better and faster Skype program. Microsoft had asked their entire existing Messenger client users to move on to the new Skype messenger for getting better features.
According to Windows live chat supports there are many reasons for migrating to the Skype messenger and one of it is the video calling functionality in the program that allows the users to video chat with their friends with ease. However, some of the users prefer to have a light messaging client for their use and they wish to keep the Windows live messenger program, if you are one among those few, then read-on.
If you have updated to the Skype program and you long for the Windows live messenger application installed on your system, you can try using some of the messenger reviving software available in the market. Messenger Reviver 2 is one of those programs that will help you in reviving the Microsoft live messenger program that is now replaced by the Skype instant messaging client. The main function of the reviving software is to make changes to the Windows live messenger program so that it will be possible for the user to login to the network using Windows live messenger and make use of the functionality of the program completely.

The reviver program is compatible with almost all Windows operating systems with Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 or higher. Windows live chat support says that the program works by detecting what version of messenger you have and then installs the necessary/corresponding patch into the system for reviving it. After the patch is installed with the system, you will be able to use the program as before the upgrade to Skype took place.
The Windows Messenger software also allows the users to download the messenger client if no version of the application is found to be installed on your system. However, there is no guarantee for the time until which you will be able to use the Windows live messenger by installing the patch provided by the reviving tool.
