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.)

A:Error Message: Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your system

During Setup, it will ask you if you need any extra drivers such as SCSI (or SATA in your case). If so, press F6. Now you are in trouble, because SATA drivers come on a floppy and new(er) Dells don't have a floppy anymore. Borrow a floppy-drive from another PC and install that in your Dell.
Setting up with the Dell disks, I'm not sure if they are RESTORE-disks or full XP-disks.
That may cause another problem.

when i start my computer, it goes to the gateway start page, and after a while (it's quite slow) it goes to the black page, and this is what it says:

Intel Boot Agent FE v4.1.10

Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media
in selected boot device.

it just stays on that screen until i do a CTRL ALT DEL, then it goes back to the Gareway screen and after about 30 seconds finally boots up and i get the Windows XP start up page, and it opens up my desktop and i can continue .

Can anyone tell me why this started happening and how to correct it?

How serious is this? I'm running on a Dell laptop with a Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller.

It is saying that I should back up all of my important files because of possible hard drive failure.

Hey Guys,

my motherboard is an ASUS P8H67-M PRO i built my computer a few days ago and haven't really had any major problems but i noticed today when i turn my computer on there is a little message the top left hand corner of the screen i can really make it all out as it is gone in an instant but what i can make out is
"No Devices"

Does anyone know how to fix this? it doesnt make sense as my drives work fine and they are recognised inside the bios. The only issue i have had is i cam to install linux today and i received an error message saying CD/DVD + USB devices not found and i cant help thinking they are linked.

Thanks in advance

Are there any devices in Device Manager with a yellow ? or triangle next to it.

A:Failed message

Wow thats alot of system stats, but I'm gonna go for the obvious unfortunately, am I right in saying that Sims 2 is for an older operating system than Windows 7? if so, try compatability mode. I had a similar problem with an older version of a codec being needed, yet I had a newer one, and it wouldnt run the game. As soon as I ticked compatability mode and selected the OS the game was meant for, the games run perfectly.

Ok so I was trying to help out business near where I work They have a a really old tower and just recently the CRT monitor (I settings! not display of out message error range Monitor think) - they were using had Monitor error message out of range - not display settings! (I think) a the green on light on it but the screen was completely blank I lent them a flat screen monitor thinking maybe the monitor had had it This time I got the start up stuff - american megatrends etc but when it started booting windows just before it displays the desktop it says out of range I managed to get into safe mode to change resolution etc but there was no option for changing refresh rate it was greyed out and set as default didnt say what number What could be causing this So the CRT monitor wouldnt display anything at all The flatscreen gave error message just before displaying the desktop Is it display settings Is it the graphics card I told them I can t fix it unless I ve got a spare graphics card to replace theirs with and their mobo doesn t have a monitor out built in I could easily wipe it and reinstall windows good idea for this year old computer anyway but I don t think this is the real problem I ve lent them a tower in the mean time to tide them over Any ideas on this Cheers nbsp

Ok, so here is the deal.
I'm working with a HP LaserJet 5Si printer from 1995 and it's having some issues.
I'm getting a message that reads "Device Error 66.0.23, cycle power" I found information about it on the HP site and followed the instructions 100%. It worked for a while, and then 10 minutes later it had the same error.
Also I have another one that keeps jamming, but only from tray 3. Total it has 4 trays due to the fact that it's on top of a paper drawer use to hold a ream or two of paper.
Any suggestions on what to do with either of these....priceless machines.
And throwing them out is out of the question as with purchasing a new printer any time soon.
Thanks
 

A:Really old printer with error message

The "Device Error 66.0.23, cycle power" could indicate a bad internal PC board connection or a failing logic board. The tray 3 paper jam, could be a misaligned tray sensor or dirty feed mechanism

Dear techs
I hope that you can help me.
My problem refers to an external 'backup' drive that gives the above error.
I have always disconnected the usb correctly
It was working perfectly nad then...
Is this the end of my essential back up? If yes. What is the point of having one?
 

A:Error message 'the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable'

Are you able to read anything on the drive? Have you tried running checkdisk or scandisk in repair mode on the drive?

The fact is, drives fail. A backup is simply supposed to be a second copy of your important data, not the only place you store your data.

I was using my computer and it rebooted (I didn't reboot it) and when it came back on, I got this message:

"Invalid system disk, replace the disk and then press any key."

I have a lot of data on the disk and do not want to lose it. It is a SATA hard drive 500 GB and I am using Windows 7 Ultimate as my operating system. One other thing, prior to my system crashing, Windows 7 had been doing an update in the background as I was working on a Word file and printing on some DVD's with my printer.

any help or advice would be appreciated.
 

A:Invalid system disk error message using Windows 7 Ultimate

Make sure you don't have any external drives plugged in and make sure you're booting from the correct drive if there's more than one installed.

Put the drive into another machine and do a backup of your files. You should have everything backed up on a regular basis, when things like this happen you'll wish you had one.

After you're all backed up, try running check disk on the drive using the Windows recovery console.

Okay, so my friend has a prepaid cellphone from Virgin Mobile.

Sometimes we'll be having a conversation, and then something happens with the phone service or whatever, and I get the same text message maybe 20 times over the course of 5 hours or so, and during that time she can't receive any texts from me.

Then after a while, it goes back to normal, and her phone gets a flood of texts that I sent over the past few hours.
What the heck is going on?
Why does this happen?
Can we do anything to fix it?

I'm not so sure how cellphone SMS messages work exactly, so I would love some more information.
Is anyone else having this problem or had this problem in the past?

A:Cloning a hdd in XP new drive gets message Missing Operating System

So you cloned the 250GB to 500GB. So does the 500GB have XP on it or are you just using it as a additional storage. You might want to do that. Leave the 250GB as the Primary C: then have the 500GB as archive media storage. There you can have all your music, pictures, music for Media Center 2005. This way you don't have to clone the HDD.

4 days ago, I bought "Seagate Barracuda, 500GB, 7200RPM"
I disconnected my old hard drive and place New Hard Drive inside the case and connect to Raid 3 in my P5B Deluxe. Next I re-connected everything and turn on the computer.

A few min of starting, the screen say that I have "Primary IDE Hard Drive Failure" and want me to press "F1" key and I did. I install my windows. After that computer restart as normal, but the screen tell me the same question "Primary IDE Hard Drive Failure" and want me to press "F1" key"

Next it will start windows normaly. Whenever, I turn on the computer, it will ask the same things over and over again.

I want to know what is the best solution.

When you call them, you will need the drive or a copy of the hard drive label in your hands.
You can find additional information at www.seagate.com on how to proceed.
In some cases, if you got a "deal" you may have to deal with the Vender from whom you got the "deal."

A:ATI Error Message, "Try installing Standard VGA first"

You said you installed Windows 7 twice, right? I get the feeling that it kept the old drivers from when you did your first install.

I would go into the control panel and uninstall all your graphics drivers. Then do a system restart. This time, DON'T use the CD. Go onto the internet, and download the graphics drivers instead.

Also, never use Windows to update your drivers. You are FAR better off going to the manufacturer's website and downloading them from there. It's just a matter of going go the ATI website, picking out what card you have, and downloading the setup file. Then run it. It's quite easy.

The problem with using your CD is that the drivers that are on the CD are old. There are updates for drivers every week or so. That means whatever drivers you have installed are very out of date.

Try getting the new drivers and see where that takes you.

Keep in mind that it's a good idea to cycle batteries in notebooks even if they are always plugged in, they should be discharged maybe once a month or so.
Your particular error seems to be coming from the CMOS, maybe you can look at that, considering its been 11 years, maybe its due for a change.

If you are really comfortable with your laptop and there is no warranty on it, attempt to take it apart and make sure all of the connections are secure (starting with your CD/DVD drive since you say it no longer works).

If you still have a warranty on it then I suggest you get it serviced so you do not damage it further should you not do it properly.

Hey guys just joined here looking for message signal' 'no some advice with my situation Over the weekend I went to best buy and bought an acer aspire M wanting to buy a new graphics card for it they told me to upgrade the power supply So they recommended a mh so I could upgrade my card in the future 'no signal' message if I wanted Eventually I ended up putting in a GT card in there and picked it up today They installed all the drivers and everything so I took it home hooked it up turned it on and everything was working fine The fans were going the lights were on and I could even hear a start up sound throught the speakers But ofcourse the monitor wasn t showing anything I first had a NU monitor hooked up that was displaying a no signal message so I switched it with a Dell monitor I had this time nothing showed up I ve googled my problem with all kinds of answers like reseting the RAM switching jumpers for a couple seconds etc Basically I don t know much about computers on the inside and I ll probably end up taking it in tomorrow but I m just curious if you guys have any suggestions Thanks nbsp

A:'no signal' message

Well, after looking around I seemed to have figured out the problem. I didn't realize I got a DVI connector, so I hooked that up and voila.. stupid me.

A:Weird error message for external HD

Hi

it occurs when windows loses site of the drive, especially during file transfer from the PC to the external drive.
USB can and does flake out either on the Ext HDD or the PC side and the result is windows giving this error.

If it continues i would try the drive in another PC to determine which unit is at fault.

I tested the hard disk in another PC and it worked fine. I tried the hard disk from the PC with the blue screen and it worked fine.

I put the hard disk from the problem PC back in the problem PC and I got the blue screen.

The problem cannot be the display adapter as my other hard drive worked fine. The problem cannot be the hard disk as it worked fine in my other PC.

Can anyone help me out there?

A:Radeon x1300 receiving Code 12 Error Message

Of course, installation never works the way it should. I followed the instructions, physically installed the card and installed the drivers from the included CD. And nothing. Under the device manager, I disabled the built-in Intel graphics chip. But my x1300 Card has a Code 12 Error Message - basically stating there is not enough free resources to run my card. I tried walking through the Troubleshooting Wizard, and got to the point where I am to find conflicting devices and try to reconfigure. This is where I get really confused.Click to expand...


A disabled device still consumes resources!
You should look through the Dell documentation as i'm guessing you probably have an onboard graphics card and you need to disable the card in BIOS (not Device Manager)
BIOS is your kind of "system configuration chip" that dicates much of what follows. Generall, to entery your BIOS you must reboot. Immediately and during the Dell flash screen after powering up, start tapping F2 to get into the BIOS setup screen. BE CAREFUL OF CHANGING ONLY THOSE SETTINGS YOU ARE SURE OF
Browse through the pages of setup options and you're likely one that allows you to enable/disable the onboard (or they may call it "integrated") graphics card. DISABLE it

See this MS KB133240 as well

A:"New CPU installed" message

The mysteries you describe are above my pay grade that's for sure. Come to think of it I probably would have taken the F1 path.

Anyway you say it's back up and running, so that should suppress some of your anxiety.

I don't know if it's even the right approach, but had this occurred to my machine, I would have booted into BIOS and opted to "load failsafe defaults", and/or reset the CMOS by removing the battery. The BIOS is responsible for detecting exactly which CPU is in there, so if it suddenly remembered, personally I wouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.

After a short while a box appears stating system error 0201 Failure 1DE#0. I have seen advice for running a scan to rectify this problem, but have no idea what to do on the PhoenixixBIOS Setup Utility page.

Is there anything I can do or is it a repair job?

A:Cannot log on my Toshiba SM30-107 Error Message

Your hard drive has gone bad... likely the magnetic media is peeling off the first eight sectors of the hard drive. You still have a chance to recover a lot of the data by installing it as a slave in an external enclosure on a USB cable.
You can do the work yourself if you have the original install disks. Buy a new drive (Directron.com, ZipZoomFly.com, NewEgg.com, Outpost.com, Frys.com, CDW.com, PCMall.com, TigerDirect.com or other of your choice) Figger out if your drive is an EIDE, PATA, ATA, or SATA, then get a replacement that matches... but you can now get a much larger drive... up to 250 or 330 GB if you wish... It has to be either a SATA or an EIDE-PATA-ATA.
Your recovery-restore disk will reformat it... but if you restore disk is Service Pack 0, 1, or 1a, you will only be able to format fully a drive of 137 GB or smaller. Then download about 136 updates from Microsoft Updates, and reinstall all your software... then recover your data from the defective drive.

Presto, you are a technician.

I had the same problem and recently cured it by going to the Drive letter in Windows Explorer and right clicking on it. Go to Properties; Click on Recording; Check "Enable CD recording on this drive". If it wasn't clicked before this will probably do it.

While i was installin the nVidia 8800GT i encountered this message sayin that "The software you are installing for this hardware has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP.

I ignored it and chose Continue Anyway and then whenever I play games like Crysis, the com would restart when i was juz 5mins into the game! But when i'm in a cooler room with air-con on, it can stay for hours!

So what i wanna ask is does the incompatibility message really the reason for this weird restarts i am encounterin?

Guys pls help me!
 

A:Help me with this error message

simply means the software does not have a digital rights agreement with micro$oft. and thus, the game may or may not be compatible with your windows OS (I doubt that though). What type of OS does you have? Vista or XP?

Trying running under XP. - assuming your system meets the base hardware requirements of the game.

It sounds like you have a heating issue. Air cooling alone (passive) is terrible - especially when playing games which can really heat up a graphics card.

You also perhaps need better drivers for you graphics card. Go to the NVIDIA website - or do a windows update M$ should have a compatible and digitally-signed driver.

you haven't said what exactly caused all 3 printers to stop or shut down in the first place... Was it a power failure or power surge? As far as the last printer, it's logic board could be damaged.

A:Error message Sony Vaio VGC-RB50

I found some Recovery discs here: http://www.sonyrecovery.com/

But the HardDrive in your computer must be recognized first
To confirm this you could do two things:

1. Remove the HardDrive and reseat it (simple but can fix the issue)
2. Go to CMOS Setup and confirm the HardDrive is being picked up by the computer

To get into CMOS
At the SONY screen, press the F2 key to enter the BIOS Setup Utility
Once in the BIOS Setup, confirm that the Drive is been shown (each CMOS configuration is different to the next, so I do not know where it is shown. But usually it's on the General or Main screen)

A:XP "Error copying file or folder" message

Thankfully you didn't try "moving" it, sometimes from doing this it vanishes from the source (as wanted) and never gets to the destination (due to out of memory error)

I've seen this myself, it's to do with system resource on your PageFile amount of Ram being used and the CPU coming in trying to process it all.

In most cases I have run CCleaner first then copied the large file(s) across without fuss.
It's just all the temp files together and Windows thinking that memory is low when it's just the processing of this memory in a temporary location (being %temp% usually)

A:Error message upon startup

From auhma.org description --0x00000024: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
A problem occurred within NTFS.SYS, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS file system drives. There may be a physical problem with the disk, or an Interrupt Request Packet (IRP) may be corrupted. Other common causes include heavy hard drive fragmentation, heavy file I/O, problems with some types of drive-mirroring software, or some antivirus software. I suggest running ChkDsk or ScanDisk as a first step; then disable all file system filters such as virus scanners, firewall software, or backup utilities. Check the file properties of NTFS.SYS to ensure it matches the current OS or SP version. Update all disk, tape backup, CD-ROM, or removable device drivers to the most current versions.

* My first best guess is that either you have bad sectors on your harddrive or your harddrive is failing.

* You could possibly slave your drive in another system and copy your important stuff onto a flash drive and/or burn to a disk. If the other drive has a harddisk diagnostic utility you can test your slave drive by running both S.M.A.R.T. and Long tests. Make sure you do the Long Test. Seagate Tools will work with many harddrives not just their own.

Kinda like a message board like this one. Note: The HTLM code is turned off, if that makes any difference.

Actually its a voice message, chanelled through my Michrophone using my sound recorder. I can attach it to my Email, but when I copy and paste it from my Email to my message board I can veiw it at anytime, but others cant seem to open it.

Do I need a Google MP3 player or should I convert it into a MP3 file?

Is special software needed? Just dont know. Thanks to all!

Hi all,

I'm working on a relatives computer and every time the computer boots up, you hear 2 short beeps followed by 3 longer beeps.

Also, on the boot up screen prior to Windows loading it says "Your CPU fan had been disconnected or in low RPM"

The fan is connected properly on the mb. In fact, this is the second fan (New) placed on this board and the same message pops up.

The motherboard is a MSI KT880 Delta. MS7047 Ver. 1
AMD Barton Athlon XP 3200+ rated at 2.2 ghz

Running WinXP Pro
2 sticks of OCZ PC3200 1024MB Dual Channel Performance Edition installed. 3-3-3-8

I looked to see in the bios is there was a CPU fan speed setting that could be adjusted, but I can't find any.


Anyone have any idea what the problem might be or how to correct it?
 

A:CPU fan error message

Look carefully in the bios once more maybe under "PC Health" or something like that. There's has to be a fan option because the system is warning you. You need to disable this warning in the bios. Take your time and look very carefully

Hi all, I'd appreciate your help on this one.

I have a Dell laptop which started getting blue screen stop error messages a few weeks ago. The error text seemed to change each time, and following advice then, I updated drivers etc, but to no avail. Eventually reinstalled OS (Windows XP), had a few days of peace, but now they're back...

Thought it might be a hard drive problem but I have had this laptop for 3 years and have already replaced the hard drive. For this reason, I'm wondering if there could be another problem which is causing the hard drive to be unhappy.

The last blue screen I got said:


STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x820FADA0, 0x820FAF14, 0x805c749A)


I was working on a Word document at the time.

Thank you in advance

I have a Netgear WN121T Wireless USB adaptor but it won't install. I have downloaded the latest firmware (version 5) and tried to install it but I get an error message saying 'Data is inavlid'. After searching forums I have attempted to change the permissions in the device manager and I have aldo deleted the contents of teh driver cache. Neither solutions have worked for me and I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions?
 

A:'Data Is Invalid' Error message when installing wireless USB adaptor

general rule of thumb - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it was working fine prior to the firmware update, then you shouldn't have messed with it. I would try to go back to the defaults.

Sooo, I've been trying to figure this out for about a month now. Whenever I'm playing somethign in WMP it'll play for about 2-3 minutes and then randomly crash. It's with both audio and video, and no error message is displayed. I've tried installing all the regular codecs, I've uninstalled the program, reinstalled the program, rolled back to WMP 10 and none of it worked. A few days ago I used a system restore which temporarily fixed the problem...for one day. Any help you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated.

I have replaced my CD burner twice because of this. Now I wonder if it was really a hardware error. When I try to burn a file onto my CD/DVD burner I get the message that the disk is Read Only. Actually it is an empty, clean, new Verbatim CD. Also receive the same message for new Memorex CD. This occurs when I use the drag-to-disk feature of Roxio 9. Any ideas?

I started getting this error message yesterday. This is the exact wording of the message.

"ieuser.exe - Bad Image

C:\Windows\system32\sensapi.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."

That was the exact message from when I tried to open Internet explorer. It shows the same message only changes the part of "*******.exe - Bad Image" I did try to uninstall the programs it was occuring on and then reinstalling them however it continues to give me the error.

Can someone help me with this issue? I would really appreciate it!

Thanks
Caleb
 

A:Keep getting "Bad Image" error message

Google ! "ieuser.exe - Bad Image"

Top of the list : DEFENDER, Vista, MSDN
Does any of this match your system?

My cursory searches @Microsoft left me with the impression that this product is poorly supported, denies this problem exists, and needs expert help to uninstall Defender (if the uninstall glitches).

A:"recovery drive full." error message Hewlett Packard Pavillion Hp dv2500

Actually what concerns me more is, I wonder if you have deleted files in your recovery partition.
It's usually hidden from inside Windows, so I expect no. But by chance did you receive a Windows CD or just a recovery partition (because the recovery files may now be gone)

As for the location, think of it this way, it will show all areas that you can backup to. I think even the floppy drive (if you have one) this is to give you the full choice, instead of putting restrictions on your own computer (which most don't like)

That's why.

Hey all, I know there is already a thread about this subject, but my circumstances are a bit different. This burner/DVD burner worked beautifully until today. I loaded up a virus scanner and later tried to use the darn burner and now it gives me a message "Cannot connect to hardware access layer" and something about the patin couffin crap...

I've ran the virus scanner on my other computer for a while now, but this is the first I've seen this message. any suggestions? I've ran the sfc /scannow in the command prompt. nothing there? I've removed the dvd in device manager and on reboot it was back. there are no ?? or !! in device manager and it says it's working properly, yet that's BS! LOL
so now what?
thanks!!

A:"No Signal" Message on Monitor

When are you getting the "No Signal" message? The moment you turn on the computer? Does the computer itself boot OK? Can you hear the normal startup activity peaking with Windows startup?

You may have bumped something loose when bringing the computer home. Check all the connections inside, especially the video card ones.

If the "No Signal" message appears only after the Windows logo screen, then the technicians at the shop set your video to a resolution or refresh rate that your monitor cannot handle. You should boot into safe mode and tweak the settings in display properties.

Not much information provided here. Hard to imagine what your rig is all about. New installs anywhere? New O.S.? When did this start? If you have the recovery disc (original Windows installation disc) you can run that and hopefully recover some semblance of a working program.
