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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I open a site in explorer on line all that appears is the banner at the top. I have to poke the expansion full screen icon to expand and see the page full screen. I don't know what caused this problem nor how to get back to the point where a page will open full (or almost full) screen.

I recently upgraded to windows 10. I purchased a 5TB Seagate External to back up my computer, and Windows is telling me there is not enough disk space for me to back up 900Gigs. Seems a bit odd.  I have tried everything I can think of, but still I get
the "BackUp Failed " error message.  

The computer says the drive has 4.54 TB unused, but still not enough space for backup and system image?  What gives?

Please help.

A:Window log / System

These are logs for events that have no impact on your machine nor do you need to do anything for them. Even a perfect running computer is going to have event logs full of various things. some may be important some not so much. I would only worry about what you see in these if your ever trying to troubleshoot a specific problem.

A:cant find Window System 32

First of all, chill

That's not a Windows file so it's either malware or some program you installed is looking for that .dll in order to start. Download and run Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel and look for any app that's starting with the system with which you aren't familiar. Uncheck it and reboot. Does the message still appear?

A:Window XP has system reserved C:

This is an issue if you have a previous install of Windows and you installed XP, which would default to the next available drive letter D: or whatever.
What you need to do is to unplug all USB HDD's and other internal HDD's, boot off of the XP CD again, and when you get to the Partition information, delete ALL partitions. untill the HDD is only Unallocated Space. Then Create a new partition. Format this partition NTFS and install Windows XP.

please how can i get rid of the black screen geneating <window root>\system 32\hal.dll error while trying to boot my computer. i don't have the driver to reinstall this, please help.

A:<window root>\system 32\hal.dll

Load your operating system CD
When you reach the command line prompt type the following and then press Enter:

expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32

Using the expand command as shown above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\windows represents the drive and folder that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different.

A:WMP on window 7 + system tray = ??

hi i found this Right-click an open area of the Windows taskbar (such as below the clock), point to Toolbars, and then select Windows Media Player.

1.This step turns on the feature and only needs to be performed once. (To switch to mini Player mode in the future, simply perform step 2.) A check mark appears next to Windows Media Player to indicate that it is turned on.

2.In Windows Media Player, click the Minimize button.

3.To return to the default behavior of the Minimize button, right-click an open area of the Windows taskbar, point to Toolbars, and then clear Windows Media Player

You will need to post the make and model of your PC or laptop before we can help you further, as the method of performing a "factory recovery" differs according to make & model. In the meantime if you can, back up all your data to another drive because factory recovery will overwrite & destroy all existing data on the C: drive.

A:HELP! Window 7 will not install on my system!

Hello SBrooks, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The "Copying Windows Files" is for copying a previous installation to the C:\Windows.old folder if you had a previous OS installed on the selected drive or partition that you are installing Windows 7 on. If not, then it will do like you experienced and not take but a second.

Try clicking on Drive options (advanced) and delete that drive so it shows as unallocated, then install Windows 7 to see if it will install afterwards.

What is the exact error message that you get?

Hope this helps for now,

A friend of my had a Sony system with Window XP Home Edition. After installing an additon memory. Everything was fine. Then, out of the blue, the system restart itself for no appearing reason. At first, it was just an occasional thing, Then one day, not long after the self-restart first happened, her system would not allows her to boot into window. It keep rebooting itself after the POST test.
At first, I thought maybe the system cannot handle too much memory, but after a careful inspect. Her system can handle the max of 1 GB (which is what is have right now). I then tought maybe it was overheating, so I remove one memory out (now her system contains only 512 MB of memory), after rebooting, the system continue to refuse loading into window. It kept on rebooting.
What could be the problems? Any ideas would greatly appreciate.



A:System keep restart without going into window.

Have you remove the old one or new one. If it is old one, first remove new one and replace the old one. Try it. Then after check the clock speed of the memory whether they match or not.

k, i have a motherboard that doesnt support sata hard drives. if i get a pci card for it would it be the same speed and performance as a motherboard with it built right in.



No mate it wont, SATA built onto the boad runs at 150 ATA theoretically but the add in cards are still limited by the PCI bus which impose the same limit as IDE chips so the most you would get would be 133, personally I never found a difference with SATA built in until I put 2 drives in a raid stripe.

How do I expand my C drive??..Here is a pic of disk management..


25GB is the recommended disk space for a window 8 consumer preview install, your C: drive just isn't big enough unless you wipe your OS that's all ready on it and you wouldn't want to do that, only install windows 8 on a test machine or as dual boot install in my opinion.

It looks like you have enough space on your E: drive where you could create a 25GB blank partition and then you could install Windows 8 consumer preview there, if not then get another or bigger hard drive.

You could also make a ghost image of your C: drive, get a bigger C: hard drive, reghost your C: drive back onto the new bigger hard drive and then create a blank partition on it of 25GB or bigger and install windows 8 there, that's above my head though and could be kind of hard to do.

hope something helps

have 4 ide devices on my home pc. I have heard of ide expansion cards that allow additional devices to be added (I have 2hd's and a cd and cdrw) I would like to put the cdrw on its own port. Can anyone explain how this works - or point me in a direction where I can find the necessary info.

A:ide expansion

Yes- An IDE Controller card will add 4 additional device capapbility- one I am familiar with called Promise Ultra 100, TX2- but there are others. Use any search engine for "IDE Controller Cards" should get you needed info. Installing the Promise Ultra 100 is fairly easy if you follow instructions. You may not have any spare IRQ's with 4 devices already. Should be some information in the search articles about this. Cost is around $25 at most PC supply sites. Bought one at computer show for $23. Most use PCI slot- sure you have one that is free- and not the shared slot.
When installed, they show up as a SCSI device.

It looks like you have enough space on your E: drive where you could create a 25GB blank partition and then you could install Windows 8 consumer preview there, if not then get another or bigger hard drive.

You could also make a ghost image of your C: drive, get a bigger C: hard drive, reghost your C: drive back onto the new bigger hard drive and then create a blank partition on it of 25GB or bigger and install windows 8 there, that's above my head though and could be kind of hard to do.

hope something helps

Each time I boot up the my computer the system 32 window opens. I saw a similar question regarding a window opening at startup and I ran msconfig and didn't see anything there referring to system 32. I am very new at this and I am very fearful of trying anything with the registry. Is there a simple way to stop this window from opening at startup ? Please help.

Check msconfig startup tab to see if anything looks out of order in the startup items. Also check the startup folder in your user profile for any entries that may have caused the problem.

As a further test disable all items in the msconfig startup tab. Reboot to see if the problem still exists.

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and started backing up my entire computer with Windows Backup.

I have two 320gb hard drivees but the 2nd one is used for backups only. When I was backing up everything, Windows Backup told me the drive had run out of space (even though there was 160gb free). So I went in and checked the backup settings. There is back up new created profiles and library data, back up of my c: drive, and then at the bottom a box is checked that says system image.

What is the difference between the system image and a backup of my c: drive?

I use Windows XP. I installed the AOL Safety and Security with AOL 9.0 Security Edition. I had McAfee Security System already installed. I thought it would be no problem since AOL Safety and Security is powered by McAfee. After conflicts with the two security systems I unstalled McAfee then the AOL Safety and Security. Now my "System Restore" comes up blank and I cannot access "Help and Support" from the start menu. I also cannot print from the internet and I cannot reinstall McAfee nor AOL Saftey and Security.
I cannot download anything from AOL or McAfee and I can't figure out what's blocking it. I have Windows antivirus and firewall working at this time.

That was a little background. I really want to know how to fix the "System Restore".

I want to delete xp op system and re-install windows 7, but not sure how I go about it. It has been many years since I wiped out a computer and started over. My computer is an older Dell Precision 390 workstation, running a 2.5.0 bios version, with an intel ( r ) pentium ( r ). Or is it best to just reinstall my xp op system. I have a nasty virus and want to start clean.

A:xp op system removal, window 7 install

Here is the support and driver downloads site for the Dell Precision 390 WorkStation.

You might want to add and save this site in your browser's favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it when needed.

It has full driver support for Windows XP and Windows Vista.

It does not have driver support for Windows 7, so you would need to locate its drivers (chipset, graphics, audio, ethernet) elsewhere.


Do you have a full version Windows 7 disc and its 25-character product key to activate Windows 7 after it's installed?

I have set High contrast (black background) on themes and I cannot find out how in Mozilla Firefox browser fisable this system colors.

You can think that this is problem of Firefox, but I asked on their forum and they also did not solved my problem.

In firefox, there are to options. One must be set to allow webpage to use colors from css sheet. One must be disabled to disallow to use system colors. This I have correctly done but Windows 7 enforces the colors to keep the window black and yellow charackters (still). This is problem because I dont see many things like icons and ale the link are too dark (low contrast instead high contrast). So I ask here how to disable this behaviour for Browser.

Somehow by installing the benchmark program Unigine Heaven I severely corrupted my Windows 10 OS. I have done a lot of reading in the last few days and tried the least invasive methods of correcting the problem to no avail. I have come to the conclusion that a refresh or reset may be the only way to repair this.

Prior to this issue I had been thinking of installing an SSD drive for my operating system. Figured the install wouldn't be too bad since there is already a 16gb SSD in my laptop and a larger one should slip right in.

My question is this. Can I install the new, larger, SSD and then do a system reset and have Window 10 install on the new SSD rather than on the conventional hard drive that the current OS is on?

A:Can I do a system reset and have Window 10 install on a different HD

You could not do a system reset, but you could do a clean install of Windows 10 onto the SSD. Or you could clone your existing Windows 10 installation to the SSD and then do the system reset.

Run a desktop with Win Xp SP3 as OS. After updating to version 9 of Avast Free anti-virus, a couple of my programmes stopped functioning.
Uninstalling and reinstalling the earlier version 8 made those programmes work again. However, in the process it consistently takes two efforts to open the System Restore window and on doing so it is blank.

I am reasonably sure that during uninstalling Avast some registry entries have been corrupted.

Short of reformatting and reinstalling XP, are there some specific registry entries I can check and correct to make the System Restore Window display correctly?

I have just added a new 9.1GB disk (same as the other 5) and run the Compaq array config utility. This has happily added the new disk to the array and restripped the data. However, NT isn't showing any more free disk space.

I had this happen when I added the 5th disk and I know I had to do something else to get NT to see the extra space, but I don't remember what.

Anyone got any ideas?

I decided to delete the hidden Asus restore partition from my cloned hard drive. The drive had 2 partitions, the hidden one, then the C: drive (with system and data).

This was before I found out that the Windows 7 Disk Management tool will not allow you to expand a partition to the left.

So now I have 15 GB of space at the start of the drive and the only option on the C: drive is to shrink the partition.

Any way using Windows to add that space to my primary partition?

You need to use a third party tool to move your partition to the start of the drive, then windows will let you expand it to fill the drive.

I have had a seagate 500gb expansion drive for two years and never had a problem, then yesterday I turned it on, the led indicator lit for a second and the disc started and continued spinning but with no sign of it in file explorer, after several more efforts the same result, I tried other usb sockets then a friends laptop with the same results I am puzzled the way the green LED lights up but for only 0.5 of a second, that together with the seemingly intact rotation of the platter gives me hope but then I know nothing of IT hardware therefore I?m hoping that someone can advise me either way whether I may be able to get a quick and (cheapish) repair or if my doom monger friend is correct by suggesting a professional retrieval can be eye-wateringly expensive regardless of the amount of data saved. Again a pre-emptive Thank you to any prospective.

A:can I resuscitate my expansion hdd.

If it just the enclosure that has failed you may be able to remove the drive and slave it in your PC. It's probably a laptop SATA drive.

According to the specs for the Slimline 260-a010, it uses a Geneva-P motherboard.  The HP supplied specs on that board show one expansion slot , a One M.2 socket 1, key A.  I have looked all over that board and can not find an expansion slot of any kind.I am trying to find a schematic of that board to check on a possible slot that I can not see.  Can anyone help with any information on the Geneva-P motherboard?  Thanks!

I really enjoy this new laptop. Only having this problem with memory expansion.
It currently has a M2 256gb SSD built in, and I want a 2,5'' 500gb HDD in it aswell.
Therefor I need a bracket.
I have found a picture of this bracket, add in attachments.
Found on the following site (picture 4/8):
In this picture is no M2 slot to be seen.
Looks like only one of these posibilties has been add into the laptop.

Question is; where can I find this bracket, so I can add more memory to my laptop?

Hi iv got a semi weird question that id like to mull over of my home computers running XP does seem to run hot to the touch as its now sumer time and i dont really have a choice but to keep it in a small un-airconditioned room judging from Speed-fan iv noticed it in the past couple days get to deg C range not sure how accurate that is but it is a bit hot to the touch when i touch the back of the fan or now its never shut down or rebooted or anything of that nature but laitly when Thermal Expansion? or something else? i do turn it off for a period of time and try to restart it it hangs on windows XP loading screen now intrestingly enough if i can still enter safe mode ect and iv tried resinstalling video drivers on a whim to see if that affects it Thermal Expansion? or something else? it seemed to fix it for the time but it still reoccurs on a cold boot iv also found that simply re-seating my video card a random geforce that i Thermal Expansion? or something else? pulled from an older system this seems to let me boot up every time simply reseating the card then powering it up again so im wondering if its Thermal expansion also note due to the design of my case its impossible for me to put a screw into the card slot for my video card something that bugs me so im leaning towards thermal expansion but could it also be a dying video card nbsp

A:Thermal Expansion? or something else?

If you can enter safemode I doubt if heat is the issue. What CPU and motherboard?

Alright, so I've basically installed everything and patched it and have the CD in the drive but when I start up the game, the game's logo shows up and then it suddenly goes.... "Age of Empires II expansion has Stopped working..." blah blah blah. I've ran some old games and they worked I don't know why AoE II doesn't....

Tried Compatibility Windows 98 and XP SP2 and Windows 2003 SP1 *No idea why*
Tried reinstalling both of them, patched them already, my anti-virus doesn't interfere with it or anything, tried running in 256 colours and still crashes, also ran as Administrator and it doesn't work..

Can anyone help me?

Specs: Intel Core 2 Quad 6600, 4gigs of memory, nVidia 9500 GT 256mb and Home Vista Premium x64/x86 and current Monitor settings is 1680 by 1050
Also this is my Task Manager, i don't think any of those interfere with it running the game..

A:Age of Empires II and Expansion

After reading your post I tried to start my old installation of AoE2 (on storage-HD) and it did run perfect. The basic game (empires2.exe) as well as the expansion (age2_x1/age2_x1.exe) required only the acceptal of the EULA (license and stuff) since I didn't installed the game properly on Vista. But everything else worked fine. So it may be a problem with your version of Vista or maybe even the system.

I had some troubles recently with older games because the programs had insufficient rights to access files... try "run as administrator" on the empires2.exe (not the shortcut), but that's only a vague guess...
Good luck!

My Computer is at 800x600 yet my mouse takes up half the screen - about 12cm long. Yet in device manager its fine. Could it be a hack or something. Cause my internet connection is really slow even with cable. Also my start bar went pink once and wallpaper "fizzy".

How can I tell what type of expansion slots I have?? I looked and I see 2 long white slots and 1 tan slot, which is a little shorter than the white ones. Thanks all for looking and helping.

A:Expansion Slots

Probably 2 PCI slots that can be used for a variety of devices and an AGP slot for a video card.

I have a new computer, (500GB hard drive; 6GB memory) and it seems that whenever I have a microsoft word document open the windows system starts to run really slowly!! When I am actually in the word programs (or internet etc) it works fine, but switching between programs, getting files up, opening task manager, viewing snapshots in the tool bar etc is extremely slow to respond!

I used my Microsoft office CD and repaired office, but it hasnt helped.



A:Window system slow when Word open

I have the same problem. When Word 2003 or 2007 is open the system slows down. Especially drag and drop operations on explorer (even if Word is minimized and has no open documents).

On the task manager, word does not take up a lot of memory under the processes, but things still slow down. I have the latest graphic card drivers. Win 7 professional x64 bit. Any ideas?
