Preferred Solution: 2nd Try, First Killed My Pc For A Month

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ok, so I just recently upgraded to a Cat6 cord, I needed a longer cord and the only ones being sold where the Cat6 so I had to get it. Before I installed it, I had a Cat5E, my speed listing was about 3.8mbps give or take.. yeah crappy verizon DSL. But after hooking up the Cat6, I'm now getting about 1.2mbps. I'm rather confused on this, cause from what I read and what I know, that shouldn't cause my speed to dive bomb. And I know it's dive bombed even without the speed test, cause everythings slowed down, loading webpages, gaming, it's all miserably slow. So, I'm at a loss, did I somehow install it wrong? Did I not appease some Tech god before doing it right? Or, perhaps a faulty line?
 

A:New Cat6 cord, killed internet speed

Temporarily use the 5e cable again? See if it goes back to previous speed.

My guess would be this should not happen. The cable I would think is sort of a go or no go situation, meaning it works or it doesn't. I'm sure you can have cables with some 'damage' that work but at reduced capacity, but 5e and 6 should be capable of doing 1000Mbps, so when you are talking about a decline from 3.8 to 1.2 that is minuscule compared to what the cable should be capable of, so I really doubt the cable is at fault. Just a weird coincidence based on the information you've given us.

AMD FX-6100
ASRock 970 Extreme 4
8GB RAM
GTX 550Ti

I was messing around in the BIOS to overclock my CPU a bit, and I somehow set it to 4900 MHz.
then I tried to start to PC, but I got BSOD.
then when I tried to restart, I just got stuck on a black screen, with mouse and keyboard not working.
now, when I try to restart, its stuck on the flashing windows emblem.
HELP! what can I do! ive already put the CPU back to stock speeds.
 

A:I think I killed my CPU

Seems pretty unlikely you'd kill it without screwing with voltages... But then again I probably don't know what I'm talking about..

Reset the CMOS (jumper) and try again?

hello i have a new acer aspire 5552 laptop computer that keeps crashing. despite the fact that i have paretologic pc health advisor installed on it. i keep scanning and fixing but it doesn't seem to work out. Please can some one help me PLZZZZ B4 I BRAKE MY COMPUTER!!!!!!!!!!!!
 

A:One month old Acer computer keeps crashing

If it's only a month old and continually crashes, I would be taking it back under warranty, get a replacement. But, does it crash as soon as you are into Windows desktop, or when you open a certain program, or when you try to get on the net?
Does it do the same thing every time, or does it run well sometimes? You can't go checking inside for faulty parts, or your warranty will be void. Tricky.

First off I don t have all the computer specs I m at work so I ll start with the general story My computer When I turned the power on would not start and would not make any POST beeps I tried removing the video card RAM checking all plugs were in properly nothing worked I swapped some RAM into my computer from my brothers still didn t work - so I tried his HD same Death killed two have Repetitive Beep computers.. May of model gb Seagate in mine and it started to make POST beeps long and repetitive I hooked my HD back up and it made the May have killed two computers.. Repetitive Beep of Death same noises Now before I touched my brothers computer it was working perfect The only parts I removed was the HD and the RAM Now I ordered a new HD and new RAM - hooked them both up and his computer STILL makes the long continuous beeps Is it possible I killed his RAM HD and that somehow killed something else I m reluctant to keep fiddling around in case I cause more damage I d prefer to fix it myself as I m now living in a more rural area and a don t trust computer techs around here and b they would probably take weeks to work the problem out and charge me more than the cost of a new comp I ve read an extensive list of FAQ s and thought that on my computer the power supply was faulty and killed my HD possibly my RAM as well I m having difficulty hooking up my new power supply on my computer so I can t be sure that was the problem or not I m pretty desperate for advice I ve read so many FAQ s I m just confused now - and would really like to try to fix my brothers computer before he is back from overseas O lol nbsp

I have a 3 month old 9500 GT that started just this past Monday giving me fuzzy windows on one of my dual monitors. It seems to only give the fuzzy screen on whatever window I have the extended desktop on. The fuzzy screen only happens when the video card is on its highest setting of (1680 x1050) for both screens, however, if I change the extended desktop setting to a smaller resolution the problem goes away. I have updated the drivers to NVIDIA's latest driver but it didn't fix the problem. I am using VGA cables which shouldn't be a problem since it worked for three months. I checked the cables and the monitors on different machines and they all work fine. Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks.

Machine Specs:
Vista Home Prem. 32 bit
AMD Triple core 8400 2.1 GHZ
3 Gigs RAM DDR667
 

A:3 month old 9500 GT displays fuzzy windows

Is your Vista upgraded to Service Pack 1?

I have or had a Windows system with a GB Fujitsu MPG AT This was partitioned as a my killed die it I or causes? HD Have of did natural GB C drive and the remaining GB unallocated I wanted to partition the free space to use as storage and thought this would be safest from within Disk Management in Win I created an extended partition in the free space and created a Have I killed my HD or did it die of natural causes? logical drive in the partition and all seemed to be OK until I attempted to re-boot and found that the BIOS can now no longer Have I killed my HD or did it die of natural causes? detect the drive at all I have set the drive up on a spare m board and this could not detect it either This system has always had an intermittent tendency to hang for about secs during IDE drive detection at boot-up but I always believed it was a m board fault Have I killed my HD or did it die of natural causes? Is it just a coincidence that the drive finally failed totally just after I had created a drive in the free space I didn t think anything I did in the software could affect the ability of the BIOS to detect the drive Is there anything I can do to recover it nbsp

A:Have I killed my HD or did it die of natural causes?

20gig?
Partitioned?
Recover?

Are you saying that you had important data on your old 20Gig partitioned harddrive,
And it is now not showing in Bios, since further partitioning, and you want to recover it?

They do have really good magnets in them, but as for any other use, not for ~ 6 to 10 years ago. Too slow and too old

I'm going to quote some free recovery tools now, whilst I roll my eyes :rolleyes:

Yesterday I tried a procedure I've done before with no problem - a RAM upgrade on a friends PC. Usual process, disconnect cables, remove side panel, earth hands on case, remove old RAM stick (256mb) put 2 new ones in, switch on. PC powers up - nothing on the monitor (though if the cable is disconnected it says so on screen "no signal"). Drat, wasn't sure what the RAM was I was putting in (usually I do), so stick the old stick back in, start up, Same nothing on monitor. Have I fried something? Can I try sticking in a spare graphics card I have in an AGP slot to circumvent the built in graphics of what is an oldish e-machibnes Celeron PC? Any adfvice/thoughts welcome.
 

A:Has my RAM replacement killed my friends PC?

Have a look here: Tutorial: No POST (Power On Self Test)
Pretty sure the dispersing voltage (and possibly with addon Video card out first) will fix that, so the original Ram will work again

A:Have I killed my new PSU by opening up my pc?

Yes ben4652, i think your PSU has failed. maybe you should check your manufacturer and your warranty.

I was messing around in my case with some cable management and getting rid of some dust. When I turned my computer back on it made a horrible single long beeping sound, I opened up my case and realised I'd forgotten to plug the power cable into my graphics card.

I plugged the power cable in and turned it on, now there is no beeping but no video output. I think I might of killed it.

My only real idea at the moment is to try and get access to another computer from a friend and see if my graphics card works in another machine or if another graphics card works in my machine.

Anyone know of a way to solve my issue, or to properly diagnose the problem as it might not actually my my gpu?

Extra thought, after this I swear to never open up and mess with my hardware unless absolutely nessescary.
 

A:I think I killed my graphics card

Hi

Its unlikely that not plugging a power lead into the video card would have killed it.

It may blow however if you plug the card in whilst the PC is turned on, im not saying you did i am just stating an opinion

I suggest you remove the card and reseat it fully and ensure that it is plugged in correctly before powering on the system

Regards

A:Going to build my first pc in a month or two...

Looks decent.

* You can get the video card cheaper if you don't need that exact one. The 9600GTs should be able to be found for ~$130 on Newegg.

* That power supply isn't very good. Look at Corsair's 650W single rail one, or any 475W or above from brands like Enermax, Antec, PC Power&Cooling...

* Probably not worth your money for that CPU cooler. Since you are looking at a Retail CPU it will come with a stock heatsink and fan which will probably be about the same performance as that Rosewill one. If you aren't going to overclock you can get by with the stock heatsink and fan just fine. If you are going to overclock you'll want a better one than the Rosewill.

* I've had a case like that (2 actually) with the rear exhaust fan area being really 2 levels (see here) and its more difficult than it should be to put in a fan because you can't actually hold the screw while you are putting it through 2 of the holes. Its not a HUGE deal, and it can be done, its just harder than I'd like. I would suggest considering any of the tool less cases (which really only mean you don't screw in hds and cd drives) they are much better to work with. The price is slightly higher, but I saved you $20 on the HSF, so maybe look at something like this. Shipping on those things is outrageous, but occationally they will do free shipping, so be on the look out for that. Also if you order from Newegg, they don't charge you shipping for each individual part and add them up, they charge for what it costs to ship them all together. So if you are going to order a case without free shipping it will save you some money overall if you order several other parts at the same time.

I recently installed Daemon tools pro, and company of heroes. I tabbed out of the game and got my first blue screen of death that said "dumping physical memory" , so i restarted and it and everything still worked. I left it on over night, and when i woke up, the blue screen was there again. But this time, when i restarted, the computer wouldn't even begin to start. The screen stays blank, discs are not being read, only the power turns on, and i cant hear the hard drive. I'm inclined to think it shorted itself out and some connections are fried. Because regardless of software issues, i still think the screen should power on. Anybody able to help me? i have lots of work to do, and don't want to buy a new laptop

Thanks
 

A:Blue screen killed my laptop entirely

As a possible quick fix.

Remove all power (including battery on laptops)
Hold the ON button in for 30 sces (dispersing all internal voltage)
Put the power cord securely back in
Try turning on the computer again

After getting an EA430 at newegg and being very satisfied, it suddenly died on me while playing TF2. It is really weird and forced me to revert back to my old PSU which meant uninstalling my 3850 as well. Should PSUs die so quickly? I thought Antec was a reliable company. Did I just get unlucky and get the 1/100,000 faulty PSU?
 

A:PSU died after a month

just bad luck
the PSU is good enough for your system
but add another drive and I say you need 500 to 600 watts
I don't know what you need for the vid card
I always go 30% more in power when building a system

Hello, believe it or not, a tiny mouse managed to enter into the power supply unit of my computer through the fan. I found it there (electrocuted when I opened the psu to try to see why it stopped working from night to morning.
After removing the dead mouse, I inspected the psu and at first sight, nothing seems to be burned or burst, even the fuse is Ok.
My question is: What components on the ups may have resulted damaged due to the shortcut caused by the mouse (I found it attached to the area where the power cord is plugged)
Secondly, would you please be so kind as to provide me with a step-by-step guide on how to attempt troubleshooting or repairing this ATX psu with such a singular problem?
Power Supply specs:
CODEGEN switching power supply
ATX2 03(P4)
400 Watts max.
Model:200X1 Made in China
 

A:A mouse killed my power supply unit

I think it would be better to purchase a new PSU, not repair unsafely the old one. (go for 550Watt this time)

As for the UPS, this should be OK, but this will need testing too - ie without plugging into the computer first.

Budget 1600-1800 euros.
What I'm planning to get:
Mobo: I have no idea
CPU: E8500 3.16 ghz; This is 45nm If I'm correct (Should be out 20 Januari at 266$ from what I hear)
Graphics Card: NVidia 8800GT *2 I'm not entirely sure about this I was originally planning on getting a card in the 9000 series but it appears it's gonna take a while before they're coming out.
RAM: I have no idea except for that I'm probably getting 4 gigs
HDD: WD Caviar 320GB*2 for Raid purposes
Case: I have no Idea
Sound Card: I'm hoping the integrated sound card from the mobo will do the job nicely.

That's about it I think.
 

A:I'm planning on building a new PC next month, I need some advice on the parts.

What you got there makes good sense. With your budget it seems all you need to do is get the best mobo available. One thing I like to remind you though, is not to get cheap on your PSU. Hope the CPU will come out on time. Please keep us up to date on your project. Enjoy!

I just bought a set of corsair ddr2 800, I have a 939 motherboard. I did not realize that I bought ram that was too fast until I turned my computer on, my monitor showed nothing, and the smell of burning electronics started coming from my newly dead computer. I'm pretty sure there is nothing I can do for the m/b. when I put the old ram back in it gives me a blank screen a flashing light and turns the fans. I'm wondering if I could have damaged the new ram and or processor in my brain fart. any help would rock and be much appreciated.

Hi

Faulty Mains wiring in the socket your plugged into, get an electrician in.

Faulty wiring in the house, get an electrician in

Or, and here I venture out on a limb, you may have just been darned unlucky and bought a faulty PSU.

I would go with the latter as its highly unlikely that your house is badly wired enough to cause a surge capable of blowing a PSU to bits.

Hey evrybody,
e
I'm really stumped on this one, my Gateway 300 se's battery died so I replaced it and now it wont laod windows and I tried everything I called gateway's tech support and they said the motherboard and everything is fine they really dont know whats wrong with it. They said it is common for computers to not work correctly when the battery died and replaced. And earlier today when It was working I ran a test since I run one every so often and everything passed. So then later on I went to turn on the system and it wouldnt load windows and said the CMOS battery was low so I went to Radioshack and replaced it. And now it still doesnt work. I dont know what to do please help thanks very much I dont know what happened???

A few months ago, I had the proudest moment of my life when I built my own PC. It's been working perfectly, until a few nights ago when the Power supply failed with a strong smell of burning (actually set off a smoke alarn).

I've just got a replacement and connected it up, and the PC is still dead. Here's what happens:

When I press the power switch, the 'power on' light lights, the case fan begins to turn, and the CPU fan begins to turn - but all this happens for only about half a second, and then everything goes totally dead again. None of this last long enough for anything to appear on the monitor, and there are no POST beeps.

I'm at a complete loss what to do. Does this sound as if my motherboard has been destroyed? Or are there any other possibilities? If the PSU *has* killed the motherboard, I presume this means the motherboard warranty won't cover it?

I'd be really grateful for any help.

What kind of power supply did you have? Did you have a crapy generic one or a really cheap one? If you did then it most probebly sound that your mobo is destroyed.

Get this the same thing happened to me about two weeks ago, but i can still get on my comnputer. The things that dont work on my mobo is the sound and usb ports. So i have decided to get a new processor , Memory, motherboard and power supply.

Sounds to me that you motherboard is destroyed and you will have to get a new mobo.

What are your system specs?

No it doesn't, all new MOBO's stay powered when the mains lead is in even when the OS is fully shut down, its so the PC can woken up by LAN or Modem.

If you have this kind of issue then take a test meter and see if there is any voltage leak between the live and the ground when the PC is on.

A:Newly built computer refuses to Boot; I think I killed it :(

It can be a faulty PSU. Aspire PSUs are known as 'bad' PSUs. What Video ard do you have. If it's a 6600GT and above, there's a good chance that your Aspire PSU is causing the problems. Maybe it was too weak and now it just died completely.

My suggestion, try replacing the PSU first, before jumping to conclusions.

GOOD LUCK and please update us.

sounds like your RAM slots are faulty now, since none of your RAM (old or new) will make the computer boot...which means.....new motherboard hehe...so ...unfortunately that means you will spend more money...i do hope i am wrong though...cuz i also hate buying so many things...to play $50 games....how did they get faulty...well shorting is a very popular response...but in reality static electricity and shorting are very uncommon causes of motherboard defects nowadays because so many ppl know to ground themselves.....i suppose that removing and replacing your memory caused some sort of damage...can't be 100% sure though...best of luck

A:Help Think I killed Friends Brand New AMD MOBO

what brand/model of power supply do you have? 400 watts isn't a whole lot of juice these days either. you need to aceratin whether you motherboard (by it's revision and bios version) supports the cpu you hooked up to it (considering the core type). this can be done on the asus website via a cpu support chart.

hey i ran this thing called killcmos in windows then i rebooted and it dosnt show all that crap info anymore it just skips directly to the windows load screen... how do i fix this?
 

A:Killcmos killed my bios screen

You go into the BIOS setup and set it to display the POST messages again.

Why did you use a program if you did not know what it does?

Hi all

I've screwed up a firmware upgrade on my cd-rw - is there any way of recovering this?? :giddy:

its a 4KUS cdr-5w40

The pc will not boot up with it attached now

many thnx in advance

chiini
 

A:I've killed my cd-rw - can anyone help??

Did you read the warning that said that updating the firmware unsuccessfully will render the drive unusable? They don't put that warning there for nothing you know.

I suppose you could try to pry open the drive and see if the ROM chip is removable. Don't count on it though, it may be easier to just go and get a new drive.

my brother recently gave me enough old parts to build several computors I my killed I think mobo I put together a P on a Tyan S w e chipset I think I killed my mobo tossed in a hard drive floppy and cd When I tried to I think I killed my mobo install win everything seemed to be working fine It went through set up like normal and then to restart Trouble is it would never go into windows It would boot up but would only stay in Dos I used Fdisk reformatted and tried to reinstall This time Scandisk indicated a damaged file I told it to fix it then again another damaged file I told it to fix it This happened about or times Suddenly the characters on the screen looked like a different language Stop laughing I m not done I rebooted and went into the bios which was now also in a different language Not knowing what else to do I reset the cmos thinking this might put me back to sqaure one Now when I try to reboot I get six beeps The manual indicates this as a prblem with the keybord controller chip I tried a different keyboard same thing On one website they said that six beeps could mean a bad CPU or MOBO Its a good thing this stuff was free Can somebody tell me what I did Signed-MegaMoron nbsp

A:I think I killed my mobo

Your safe, its not considered murder in most states.

PS/2 style keyboards and mouse should never plugged in or unplugged when power is on or the computer is in standby, power is still supplied to them.
To be safe unplug the power supply before unplugging and plugging in both.

A damaged keyboard cord can damage the controller chip, power leaking or shorted into the data channel.

Most modern motherboards have resetable fuses (thermal; reset when they cool down).. Repeated over current (bad cable) tripping the fuse will eventually damage the controller chip.

Was the keyboard acting erratic or the computer not always excepting input from the keyboard ?

AMI Beep-Error-Codes
Six beeps = Keyboard Controller Gate A20 error (BIOS can not switch CPU into protected mode)

A:9600xt killed my computer

hmm i havnt heard of this before...but maybe u should try resetting the CMOS. One time after installing a graphic card i had startup issues similar to this, that might do the trick. Check the instruction manual to your Mobo to find out where your CMOS is, it should be near the little battery in the bottom right of your Mobo.

Could you try running a simply hardware setup with that board, and then tell us EXACTLY what happens when you boot?

Do you get a POST, or a flashing cursor top left of screen? No power up on the monitor? no power up at all? power light on the case but nothing happens?

What OS are you using?

If it's an IRQ problem, which it sounds like, you can't change the IRQ by just switching PCI slots, you have to change the IRQ via the Device Manager. I would give you directions to the DM, but I don't know what Windows you're using, if even using Windows...

it sounds as though you might have damaged one of the sdram slots in your Mobo... as you've tested the Ram etc and it all seems to work on your old mobo it looks as though youve eliminated all other possibilities..... i hope for your sake i'm wrong

Hi, for the past month or so, I've been dealing with random BSODs on my windows 7 laptop (Sager NP4658), can someone tell me what's causing them?  I've attached the dump files from the last month to this post.
 
I've already done a chkdsk which found no corruptions, SFC 'did not find any integrity violations', and verifier.exe (only tested all non-microsoft drivers) found no problems.

A:Frequent BSODs for the past month

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/ Out of 7 memory dumps there were 6 different BSOD error codes.  The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things (the list is not in any sort of order):- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case.  Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)- missing Windows Updates- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems- low-level driver problems- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html or http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html ).Please get a head start on the hardware diagnostics - they are located here:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.htmlDaemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen both dtsoftbus01.sys and dtscsibus.sys blamed on several occasions).Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration):  New link (15 Aug 2012):  http://www.duplexsecure.com/downloads (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).Alternate link:  http://www.disc-tools.com/download/sptdManual procedure here:  http://daemonpro-help.com/en/problems_and_solutions/registry_and_sptd_problems.htmlAnalysis:The following is for informational purposes only.[font=lucida console]**************************Thu Jun 11 20:20:10.037 2015 (UTC - 4:00)**************************

I keep having programs hanging, and then refusing to be killed, no matter how often I say end process or kill process they don't go anywhere.

I've done virus scans and everythings fine, I've done disk checks and everythings fine, but still it seems like somethings wrong with my pc!!! =(

When I shut down, Windows hangs on 'windows is shutting down' then when I push hard reset I either get message 'bios settings are wrong, press f1 to configure bios'
or 'overclocking failed! press f1 to...' i dont remember the rest on that one.

I've got sp2. thats the only solution ive found in regards to windows shutting down...

Programs that have worked before often refuse to start up or crash immediately... No matter wat I do my pc is determined to **** my asss.

wtf is wrong with my stupid microsoft piece of junk?
 

A:Programs hang, refuse to be killed

If you have over-clocked the processor, I would reverse that immediately.

find the Event Viewer (cp->admin tools->Event Viewer)
Look in the Application tree. Find the application, double click that row,
then click the little book on the right (which is a COPY of the data)

Come back to this post and add a feedback with the PASTEd data.

You can also click the link to access Microsoft with the details.

A:Cloning Software Killed Old and New Disk

Interesting - I use Acronis myself and successfully moved both XP SP3 and Vista Home Premium to new drives. Both are upgrades, so Acronis is truly out of ideas.

I'm not quite sure if you can do it from a boot disk, but I had a problem once that in Windows, the disk that got moved was not assigned a letter (in my case E: ) in Windows system. I could assign it manually from the hardware manager.

Hope it gives you some path for investigating it deeper.

Windows 7 64 Bit OS

Computer Hardware:
Intel i5 cpu 760 2.8 GHZ
4 GB ram
Radeon HD 6870 Video card
Powered by Corsair 1000w Power supply

First the computer was a present so I really do not know what I am doing. I have researched multiple steps to take in trying to correct BSOD. Some days it runs smooth while others I can get 5 BSOD a day.

Once the BSOD started getting out of hand I ran a DISK error check, a Disk cleanup, then I defraged the computer. I also made sure that all drivers were up to date and I ran a virus scanner.

This helped for around 1 week. Now they are back and as of today I have experienced 4 BSOD. I have attached the past 5 minidump files. Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:37 BSODs in one month!

You actually counted 37 BSOD's in a month? That's about as exciting as watching grass grow :rolleyes: Try resetting the bios to the default settings. If you don't know how to do this, get a friend to help you

A:Couple month old custom PC has problems

Sounds like the problem is related to Windows going into standby and being unable to wake up afterwards.

Disable sleep in the power options of control panel, and then run it and see how it then behaves with extended usage.

If you suspect temps are an issue download HWMonitor and then play some games and get back to use with the temps. If it was overheating it would lock up and reboot though in most instances.

A:BSOD a few times per month since new

The test needs to run a minimum of 7 Passes. The more you can run beyond 7 so much the better. There are 8 tests per PASS. Even though the test looks like it is repeating the same patterns over and over it is not.

Your dumps cite memory corruption and that is where you need to concentrate because corrupted memory can cause all kinds of issues while throwing out all kinds of error codes.

A:IE6 upgrade has killed my e-mail!

Welcome to TechSpot

Rather than waste your time on IE and OE, make the move over to the competition.
Install Firefox browser and Thunderbird email from www.mozilla.org.
You should be able to import your old emails from OE, if the data is still on your HD.
The above programs are a lot less susceptible to virus-attacks, thus having many advantages over the M$-$tuff.

It is continually getting slower and slower, particularly while browsing.  I am unable to stream a simple video and loading a web page takes as long as a few minutes.  The issue exists on multiple connections (home, work, my sister's house) and doesn't appear to have any correlation to the speed of the connection.  I have run virus and malware scans and have not had any infections. I am at my wit's end on this as I spent a decent amount of money for this laptop and it is by far the slowest I've ever had.  Thanks in advance for any help.

Several possible causes. Tell us what programs you have used to find adware and malware.
 
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.
CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
 
After running CCleaner...post the three lists mentioned below using CCleaner:
 
Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for each browser and Scheduled Tasks.
At the bottom right of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste the list of Windows Startups and Scheduled Tasks into your next

A:laptop telling me it cant activate windows but its been running over a month

Were you requested to activate the product during your first month usage?
--- I set up someone's Win 8.1 laptop about a month ago and there was a comment that the activation would automatically occur within some period: I told my friend let's activate it now
There is a 25-character key involved and the activation recognized it automatically upon activation 
--- Do you know what your 25 character key is?
I believe that after 30 days you need to contact Microsoft and I think you need to know the 25 character key
--- However, it might make sense to bring the computer back to where you bought it from so they can save you the time of contacting Microsoft, especially is you don't know the 25 character key is

I'm tired of windows but have a relatively new unit so I pay HP smart friend $15 per month in order to keep the ugliness at bay.
Does your community find this totally unnecessary because I am concerned about problems that arise using windows.
Hundred and $180 a year is a lot of money to keep pop-ups etc from the inevitable invasion.

A:paying $15 a month to prevent computer problems

I don't know what other members on the forum think but personally I think it is a waste of money. Get a good antivirus program and do most of your internet browsing in a limited user account.

A:AVG PC TuneUp killed my laptop

Boot from the USB install stick again and just click "Next" even though there is no OS listed (don't try to "load drivers") you should get this:

 
Choose startup repair which wil attempt to recover the boot sector of your computer... sometimes it may take running a startup repair 3 or more times (rebooting the computer after each time) before it fully fixes the startup issue:
 
Startup Repair
 
Hopefully you'll be able to boot into Windows at which point I'd run the sfc /scannow  command, who knows what other valuable system files this AVG PC TuneUp drek may have trashed; SFC likewise may take running multiple times to fully correct integrity violations:

If it's within 30 days, you can go back to your Win 7 license. If it's over 30 days, I think you're stuck with Win 10.

The last automatic Microsoft Vista update killed the ability to print JPG and PNG files on Canon iP2600 printer.
I have downloaded the latest Canon iP 2600 2.15 driver for Vista but I can still not print JPG of PNG files.
I can print these images as native files from Paint, LibreOffice, Solidworks and other graphics programs but as soon as I save the file as a JPG of PNG file the printer goes through the motion but produces only a blank paper.
Does anybody have a suggestion ??

But starting Win 10 all the "7-points" are still there.

Why that and ... how to fix it?

To avoid any conflict. Open Disk Management and remove the drive letter of Windows 10 while running Windows 7 and vice versa.

Just installed Win yesterday and taking a first look at the Calendar app Unless I have overlooked something this app has a flaw that makes it almost not worth using I'm using the app to display my Google Calendar events a month at a time In many cases I have enough events scheduled for a single day view month Multiple Calendar: in events that they Calendar: Multiple events in month view won't all fit in the cell in Month View Is there really no way to display all the events for a given date including the ones that don't fit in Month View For example in the Calendar app on my phone it is usually the case that not all the events for a given date show in the grid but tapping the date in question displays a pop-up that shows them all This app just runs them off the bottom of the cell It doesn't even alert you to the fact that there are additional events for that date that it isn't displaying Dare I hope I'm missing something here John

A:Calendar: Multiple events in month view

I guess nobody shares my angst for the perceived shortcomings of the Calendar app.

All the same, thought I'd mention that I installed an app from the Store called One Calendar that seems to be free, and does not suffer from the above-stated problem (when viewing in Month View, if there are 'n' events that don't fit in the grid, One Calendar displays a little '+n' at the top of the cell, alerting you to the fact that there's more you're not seeing; then clicking on the cell brings up the Day View, so you can see it all).

All's well that ends well.

I thought it might be a helpful time to remind any remaining users of Windows 8 (as opposed to 8.1) that it goes out of support in a month's time, on 12th January 2016.

From here:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...-windows81-faq





With the General Availability of Windows 8.1, customers on Windows 8 have 2 years, until January 12, 2016, to move to Windows 8.1 in order to remain supported.



I know that there were some changes in the hardware requirements between 8 and 8.1 which affected some hardware - I think some of those folks may have to switch to 32-bit to stay supported, although I'm not sure that addresses all the issues.

But for everyone else on Windows 8, it's time to consider moving to Windows 8.1 (or download the Windows 10 ISO and upgrade straight to that in one go).

A:4 month old custom PC suddenly running very hot

Mendenbarr, welcome to SevenForums.
I would start with the CPU cooler first. What brand is it or is it the stock Intel cooler? I would at the very least see if the cpu mount is a little loose, like a slight wiggle loose. Plan on seeing if a snug down is in order, don't over tighten but the cpu cooler should be good and snugged down. If it is then go and purchase Arctic cleaner and Arctic silver thermal compound and plan on watching several YouTube videos on cleaning and reapplying.
