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.)

I am using an Asus X53U Laptop.

I am using hdmi cable to watch on my t.v.., so I wish to disable the image
or darken the laptop screen without affecting the display on the t.v. screen,
since I don't need to have the laptop and t.v. screen on at the same time.

So how do I disable and enable the laptop screen using Windows 7 ?

I need help with this laptop. Videos are choppy and slow like Youtube or Dailymotion videos. I've tried updating graphics drive AMD Radeon, cleaning and defrag, CCleaner, running AVG (I have since then got rid of AVG in an attempt to clean out programs to see if it would help), reinstalling Flash and Firefox and Chrome.

Any help would be most appreciated, thanks

I've just bought 2 X 1 GB DDR RAM (PC3200 DDR400) for my ASUS A7A266-E motherboard.

Each RAM chip runs fine by itself in either DDR slot, however when I try
using them both at the same time, no luck. The boot memory test is
blank. I also noticed that when I look in the BIOS settings when I
have both chips in, memory is only recognised as 1MB. When I only
have one chip in, the BIOS setting shows it as 1024MB (which) is

With two chips, boot stops after loading all the PCI devices.

I know its my motherboard or pc (possibly drivers??) because my mic works on other pc's, could someone please provide a possible solution if there is any. I am considering buying a seperate soundcard to the one on the board but i dont know if this would fix the problem..if it would could someone tell me if i have to disable the original sound card on the motherboard and how to do this. i am soooo desperate as i use it (my mic) alot in online gaming. thanks

The problem started out as i could start windows normally then it would say my wd smartware isn't working followed by freezing up. then the windows defender that came with the computer started to act up and now my computer will not even get to the login screen. it get to the Microsoft windows loading screen and stays there. the loading bar is there but the windows icon is not. when i go to device manager and look under System Devices the Consumer IR Devices has a little yellow triangle with an exclamation point over top of it. Any ideas how to fix this problem? As you can tell I know almost nothing of computers.

Hi all.
I just tried to install win7 on an asus laptop.
It all goes smoothly until it reboots after i have conntected to my wireless.
It all seems to work great. It loads like a normal boot, then i get a screen with the error: Can not open file: c:\RECOVERY.DAT


The error word is written on big red letters.

Have anyone got anything to suggest here?
I can press any button and nothing happens.

I cant even start in safemode.
I get the same error.

Thanks in advance for any help you all can give me.

Hey there,

I'm using the onboard sound of my ASUS P7P55D motherboard.
The back audio connectors work fine, but I somehow can't use the front panel that I connected to the mobo (yellow cable).

Is there a trick or any setting to activate it with win7 professional x64?

I also tried changing to AC97 in BIOS, didn't help...


A:Front audio Panel doesn't work (ASUS P7P55D motherboard)

Check which it is that the csae has as they are wired differently between HD Audio and AC97,

It is also possible that that fpaudio block is wired wrong and neither will work. If that is what it is it will take pulling and reseating the various wires in the block; not easy but can be done.

A:cant get klipsch 5.1 speakers to fully work on asus with realtek hd audio manager

I could be way off, but the Realtek audio software usually gangs the sub into the speakers. So, 5.1 = 6 speaker config. 7.1 = 8 speaker config.

Not sure how you have things wired back/panel and in the software, but perhaps trying the 6 speaker setting may fix things.. unless it's for Dolby surround only (which expects your speakers to do the crossover/encoding).

The title pretty much says it all. I'm honestly at the end of my rope. Device manager replies all is well, yet sound stopped working overnight.

It isn't muted,I'm not that oblivious.

I own Advanced System Care Pro ( and consequently, Driver Booster ) so I have already all of my drivers up to date, as well as any other problems I might have had.

Used a bunch of other scanners to figure out the problem to no avail. Plugging some headphones in also doesn't cut it, so it made me think that perhaps the hardware was actually fine and some software conflict was the cause of the problem. I have no freaking clue anymore, should I just get mad and yell at my computer for an hour or so to relieve stress now??

A:Laptop audio refuses to work, all devices work properly, sound isn't muted. Help?

First we need to know the EXACT make and model number of the laptop in question. Secondly the only place you should be looking for drivers for you laptop is the laptop manufacturers support website. Driver scanners really are not helpful.

A:Vista Wont Repair on Asus Laptop

Hmm...if I were a bettin man I'd say it's either a RAM issue or a hard drive issue. When you're doing the install process are you having the computer format the HD and if so, are you doing a full or quick format. I'd suggest doing a full format and let that run through. It is remotely possible that your computer has sustained some kind of heat related issue, but I'd look to the other things first as replacing hardware like the motherboard can get very pricey.

This is the second time in six months, my laptop Asus VM70, 2.54 Ghz with Vista home Premium crashes . The first time, a 'friend' helped and erased all data. Now I want to do it myself. Having read through the Tech Support Guy posts, it tried Esc, F1 and F2 to make the computer boot from the recovery DVD. I do get the Bios screen, but it does not respond to the F2 strokes, to switch to 'boot from drive'. It is busy 'initalizing the USB controllers'. I have also tried the F9 for the recovery partition, but also no response. The laptop shows the Asus and intel logos on a black schreen.

Does anyone have a trick to fix this?

My Asus X550LD laptop do not have any sound from internal speaker and headphone jack.
After update the driver,it still not working.
There is no any sound device found in device manager.
So I decide to open the laptop and see whether there have the internal audio chip or not.
But I don't know where is the audio chip location.
Because this laptop I just buy it from eBay.
Any expert had such information,please help me and provide me some information.

ASUS laptop - after installing windows 10, I am unable to use mouse or touchpad. there is no response. The touch screen works.

A:ASUS laptop Mouse & touchpad don't work after W10 install

First thing I would try is this, as it's easy:Turn off laptop, remove power cord, remove main battery if at all possible. Next hold the Power Off/On button down for about 20 seconds to discharge the motherboard components. This has helped unstick things at odd times.Otherwise, see if you can make your way to Device Manager and see if any errors are showing under "Keyboard" and "Mice and other pointing devices". Let us know if any errors are showing (usually small yellow icons). You could also under each appropriate sub-heading right click and use Uninstall then restart the computer. DO NOT say yes to any request to remove software. On restart this will find the items as new hardware and attempt to re-establish the software, which often fixes issues.Failing that check with your computer manufacturer to see if you have the latest drivers for both items, preferably ones that say Win 10.I realise this will be fiddling from the touch screen so I wish you well. If necessary you might be able to download drivers as files on another computer then see if you can copy them across using a flash drive.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

So I wanted to restore my PC by down grading from win8 to win7 ( I've done that many times )
but I never use the same .iso file, and this time, when I download the proper file to get my wifi working ( I'm using an asus k55a ) it unfortunately doesn't work.

It says "The installation XML file is either missing or corrupted. The setup application will exit! "
I've searched and I couldn't find any help to get this problem gone so I decided to go back to window 8, but I'm not able to boot from any .iso file, neither in window7
For some reasons I can only boot from DVD/CD but when I get to boot nothing happen ...

So I'm a bit stuck here, if someone could give me any advice that would be much appreciated,

regards, william.

I put the CD in my other computer, and it reads the CD fine. The only trouble is that computer does not have MS Office on it so opening the files on that computer is just as useless.
Should I restart my computer? (I don't remember seing any notifications that I got new updates)

Hi patrick477,Welcome to the BC forums.Your d/ drive is probably set up for use as a recovery drive, as opposed to a place for backups.Look at START -> COMPUTER and a screen showing your various drives should pop up. Does it show Recover (D:)?Take a look at the HP Customer Care site here and see if it addresses your problem.

My laptop is a HP ProBook 6390b and I am using windows 7. This problem started occurring after about 4 months disuse of my laptop which I think might be a factor as to why its not working. I have run windows updater and run a scan with my antivirus but still nothing helps. Thank you for any assistance in advance.

Hey everyone,
So today my friend dropped his laptop and said that the computer wont work. So I took it in my hands. The laptop is a Acer 5532-5194. The problem is that when ever i boot the laptop, all the leds turn on ( the power led, the optical drive led) and even the optical drive can eject, but no display! Its just a black screen and nothing appears. I tried to boot it without the battery and just AC adaptor but that didn't make a difference. I swapped hard drives with my own laptop, that didn't work. Not sure what else to try and what the heck the problem is. I even plugged it into a external monitor seeing if that would do any good...NOPE, I was wrong. So could someone else tell me what I could do to fix it and what the problem may be?

I took the Laptop into work and hooked it up to the wireless connection and the same thing happens. (No connection)

I think there might be a virus on this system stopping it from working.

Does anyone have any tips for stuff to check, Or any programs i can download, Burn to CD and run on his PC.

I can access my laptops libraries on my desktop, but if i try to use my laptop to access the desktops libraries i see this:

I have tried disabling the firewall (Avg) on both computers.. Id also like to add that the desktop computer does not always show up in the network.. it is very inconsistent.. I have no clue what is going on!

Well start with what it lists there first. Particularity the network location. Also, if you have Windows firewall up try disabling it as well.

Hi everyone,

I recently bought a new Dell laptop Inspiron 1545 with Windows 7 64-bit, Pentium(R) Dual core CPU T4200 @ 2.0GHz (2CPU's), 4096MB RAM. The graphics card is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330

The main problem is that the Sims 3 game wont load on it. I put it in and I can hear it whizzing round however nothing happens and it doesnt recognise it. There are no error messages or anything.

I have used the game on a previous Dell laptop and it worked fine so the game is alright, also, I have played other games on my new laptop and its fine. On the other hand it doesnt recognise certain DVD's either. I thought the spec of my laptop was adequate for the Sims 3 but I could be wrong. Any help would be much appreciated!

I do not know if you call that a wheel ( I thought wheel was on bottom). there is nothing but light coming out of the bottom. anyway, I know it is an HID device that may not need a driver per se; but the microsoft windows HID upgrade is not working. I paid for (cough) driver tool, driver navigator etc and went to the hewlett packard site where it suggested I download another drivertool - then I realized I shouldnt keep paying.

(E:\Windows\assembly\NativeImages_v4.0.30319_32\System.Xml\56af718db5fe3b6 from the restore point.
The restore point was damaged or deleted during the restore.

It goes on to say I can try using different restore points which ive already tried without success.. any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've had an external monitor hooked up to my laptop for ages, showing duplicate screen
--same screen as laptop. Now suddently it went blank, The monitor works fine.

How do I get it to show the laptop screen again. I went to control pannel and display and properties and it seems to be monitor 2. If I click the extend desktop box, I get my screensaver on the external but nothing else-- it doesn't change when my laptop display does.

I could really use the monitor back. Any help would be welcome.

Thanks in advance

So yeah, I use a HDMI - HDMI cable to my laptop whenever I want to watch DVDs on it.
It used to be that the audio would work, but now that does not seem to be the case.

I've tried rolling back to previous versions but to no avail.

And yes, i've lurked through all the previous threads but to no avail.
The default audio device has been set to the TV's, the HDMI audio has been enabled and i've tried everything. Nothing

Please Windows 7 forum guys, you guys are my only hope!

Here are the specs

Acer ASPIRE 4741G
Intel Core 5-460M processor 2.53 GHZ
4 gig ram
Windows 7 64bit Home premium

A:Need Help : Audio won't work when I attach my HDMI cable to my laptop

found this info for you,give it a go and let us know how it went
- Click on the "Start" button
- Click on "Control Panel"
- With the Control Panel in "Control Panel Home" view please click on "Hardware and Sound"
- Where it says "Sound" in green letters there are three options below that are in blue click on "Manage Audio Devices"
- This will bring up a window labeled "Sound"
- On the "Playback" tab there is listed the sound options available to you. One should read "Digital Output Device (HDMI)" Click on that.
- There should now be a check mark on that option.
- The Sound should then play through your HDMI hookups to the TV.

My laptop is an Optima Centoris v662 and i recently had Microsoft service pack 3 installed over windows vista. ever since i did, my wireless radio turned off and the switches (fn f10 and the seperate switch just above the keyboard) wont work. my wireless card is a intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945AGB but i dont think that is the problem. Nothing i do helps fix the problem. anyone got advice?

A:My wireless radio switches wont work on my optima laptop

Microsoft service pack 3 - for what - is this a Vista Service Pack or Office Service Pack (I'm not an expert at all the latest releases - and cant find a Vista Sp3 - office 2003 SP3 - but that was released in 2007 i think )

try a restore to before service pack 3 and see if that now allows the switch to work

So, we have multiple computers that the wireless capability stops working randomly and can be fixed by going in to the BIOS and resetting it to the defaults.

Any idea why?

hi i just got a new laptop today im using steam it says i need to download flash player ive installed it looked it up on add and remove programs but i cant use it and it wont run please help

A:Adobe flash player wont work on my new dell xps 15 laptop

Hi Rambo,

Did you ever find the Flash Player in the Add/Remove programs view?
Please uninstall the Flash player, reboot the machine, then download and reinstall it again.

Is it steam that isn't recognizing the Flash Plugin? Because the Flash plugin is only really used in the Browser-view of steam and shouldn't affect it's functionality in any other way.

If both are installed and problem persists after reboot, also Repair steam from Add/Remove programs after Flash has been installed, to make sure that Steam knows it's installed from the start.

Otherwise get back to us with more information, what error codes you get, where it won't load etc etc.

I have an HP G72 laptop running windows 7 home premium. yesterday when i was on the computer all of a sudden screen turned white and the only button that would work was power button. i held it down and shut off computer. when i turned it back on it goes through the usual boot process up to where i have to enter password for user profile. when i hit enter it will start showing my desktop icons like normal and then just go blank again. when i try to boot in safe mode it goes through the same process except when it starts displaying desktop icons it stops and automatically shuts back down and trys to boot up again in normal mode. if i try to restore it back to a restore point it says there are none available. Any input on what might be causing these problems will be greatly appreciated.

A:laptop boots to blank screen, safe mode wont work

You HDD may be failing. On another computer download the ISO image for Seatools in my signature. Burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD and run the Short and Long tests on the drive. If either tests fails, the HDD needs to be replaced.

A:Asus Laptop/RealTek "No Audio Output Device is Installed"

From your description, I'm going to suggest what I try to avoid at all costs. Do a complete reinstall. I know its a hassle but sometimes its what is needed.

Backup your user data to some external media (USB flash drive, CD/DVD media, etc) first as the reinstall will wipe it all out. Then do the reinstall, using the recovery mode that I assume ASUS has (most PC vendors have a recovery partition on the hard drive that will allow restoring to the original factory condition).

Im trying to get an audio chat working with a friend of mine in Windows Live messenger, but none of my mic's work. I have 2, and neither one works at all. When I try to set them up in the "audio recognition" in the control panel, the wizard wont start, and it says to make sure my audio hardware is working properly, but everything seems to be in working order.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

if you right click your audio icon in the taskbar, and select recording devices, this window will show up.

make sure your microphone is selected as a default device and the microphone itself is plugged into the "red" jack on your computer
