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.)

What problem do you have with your graphics card?

Unless absolutely necessary, it isn't generally recommended to update the BIOS.

Hi. Is there anyone that knows how to roll back the Bios? I have an HP Pavilion dv9500 laptop I sent in to HP to have the HD re-imaged. I believe that they flashed the bios on me because the version that I have now is newer than when I purchased the computer.

Is it possible to rollback the bios? I am having problems with Help and Support displaying the correct information since I got my laptop back. HP stated that they repaired and upgraded the laptop. I just want it back to the way it was. I just purchased this is July, and the bios version is for August 28th (according to their website).

If anyone can help me I would sincerely appreciate it. I do not want to cause damage, so I would like some instruction.

Thanks for anyone that can help me out.

A notification in the task bar says that there is a Java update available on my Windows XP professional computer and I click on it and it presents me with a message "Java installer requires a newer version of Windows." and I hit OK. but later in the day or another day, the same update available shows up with the same requires a newer version of Windows when I click on it.
Why is Java trying to update itself on a version of Windows that the newer version is not compatible with? how do I stop it from showing up?

A:Java update available - Requires newer version of Windows; repeat later

Hi Sylveon You should disable the Java Auto Updater program that is being launched on start-up. You can easily do that via the msconfig panel, under the Startup tab. Like for Java Update Scheduler and disable it. Once done, go in the Services tab, look for a service with the same name and disable it as well. That should do the trick.

Hello,I need a quick info. I would like to update my BIOS. The current version is F.00  - 07/03/2013 and I would like to update it to the F.27 Rev.A - 25/07/2016 version. However, Win 10 (which is the OS I'm using) isn't listed as a supported OS for this BIOS (the latest supported version for Win is Win 8.1 64 bit). I would like to know if I can still download and use the BIOS F.27 Rev.A 25/07/2016 version even though the latest listed OS is Win 8.1 64 bit, while I'm using Win 10 64 bit?Thanks.

I want to reinstall XP.

I set the computer to boot to the CD drive.

Then I got an error message saying "No boot record found" (referring to the XP Home CD) in the CD drive, so the XP CD will not boot (I guess).

Then I rebooted by turning off the computer and turning the computer on via the switch taking me to the desktop.

I clicked on the CD drive icon so I could get access to the XP CD.

I clicked on the "reinstall XP" option but then I got the message saying I could not reinstall XP because the version on my hard drive is newer than the XP version on my XP-Home CD.

I have Acronis so I can wipe the disc clean.

However, if I wipe disc clean and reboot with an Acronis emergency CD, what do I do after I reboot using the emergency CD?

First you have to go to whatever site it is for your pc and see if there is an update. If there is download it then run it.

Some free advice. If your bios is working fine, and there`s no need to update it, then dont.

It could make things worse.

I have an ASUS X54C Laptop.

When I bought the laptop the BIOS version was 204.

I see that BIOS version 210 for my model laptop is now available from the ASUS website. I have never updated BIOS before and am nervous about this

EDIT: From system specs, this is what the full description of the current BIOS version is:





BIOS Version: American Megatrends Inc. K54C.204, 2012-01-20



So I have downloaded the latest BIOS V. 210. It downloads as a ZIPPED folder named K54CAS210

Can anyone advise on the correct method to extract, & install, the latest BIOS version, and highlight the risks I might face?

Thanks in advance

A:BIOS version .. to update or not

There should be information with the download about what is updated. I always read that. It's a shame if a BIOS update fails but even worse if there's nothing you really needed in the new code. Also you should check if there's a way to revert to the current version even if the new install has an error.

I haven't had a PC go dead doornail on me. But I had it happen on a $240 external modem. Not fun.

Just becasue you are changing OS's doesn't mean you need to flash your BIOS. The info you gave us will not help you find the update either. You need the BIOS number from boot up. If you go to motherboard.org they will give you tips on finding this information.

Will the bios update create some new menu in my bios? if not, what is the use of bios update?
Why driver update program like drivermax does not find updates for bios?
Can i add any item in Boot priority menu and make it workable thro registry tricks

A:how to know the correct version of bios for update

My rules of the thumb when it comes to bios updates (flash)

1. Always use the motherboard manual instruction to do a bios flash.

2. Only do a bios flash if the problem you are having is listed in the bios information as a repair for the problem you are having.

3. Never do a bios flash just because their is a new one. If your not having a problem leave the bios alone.

Example: Here is my bios on the system I'm typing from now.

BIOS
Brand American Megatrends Inc.
Version 0502
Date 11/16/2010

I'm not having any problems so I leave the 2010 bios alone.
If I do get a problem 99.9% of the time it's not caused by the bios version.

As far as I know you can't flash the bios from within Windows 7.
Your bios is installed on/in the motherboard not in Window 7 registry.

On some motherboards if a bios flash goes a muck your motherboard will become unusable. Possibly the motherboard manufacture will repair it.

Driver update programs like drivermax will most likely do nothing but cause problem. Install a bunch of PUP's and be very difficult to remove completely.

And in dxdiag window, it says...

Many Windows-based programs will simply install over the top of, or Upgrade, what is already installed. That's good if one has purchased a program and doesn't want to lose registration information but with totally free programs one can either just install the new or Uninstall the old first.

Hello Everyone,
My question is kind of a complex problem that I am having now.
Last Week, my sister borrowed a laptop from my brother and
it automatically create a restore point.
She told us that during this process, she unknowingly cancel it
and tried to reboot the computer.
Now the computer will not proceed pass POST.
I have tried everything that I can do, but it either stall or
can't read the boot.inf file or splash.

When I boot and go into advance options, I cannot do a system restore.
It even says That there's a unknown OS or No OS.
So should I try to re-install Vista or WIN 7?

It is a Toshiba L305 with Vista-x-86-32 bit

A:Should I install a newer version

Are you able to boot into Safe Mode?While the computer is turning on, tap F8 once every second until a black screen with white text appears. Using your arrow keys highlight the option Safe Mode and hit Enter. If not, you have a few options:Reformat the drive using a recovery CD.Reformat the drive using a Recovery partition.Reinstall Windows Vista 32-bit.Install Windows 7.The first three would be the best options, in that order.If you're really interested in installing Windows 7, you should check to see that all your hardware has drivers for Windows 7. You can do this by using the Windows 7 Upgrade Adviser.But obviously you're going to have to get your computer running before you can check that anyway.

hi.

i recently installed msn messenger 8.0 and everytime i try to sign in i get a message on the screen saying "a newer version is available. you must install the newer version in order to contiue"

now if i install the newer version it won't work on my comp, and if i don't i can't bypass this message i'm getting.

any ideas??

thanks in advance
 

A:why do i have to install a newer version??

Sounds like 8.0 won't work with or will not be allowed to work with the current msn network. That could be for a good reason or a dumb one, either way it sounds like fact, and if your computer can't handle the updated version I think you're over a barrel for msn messenger use.

Does yahoo messenger work on your system? You can communicate with msn im users with yahoo im or an all-in-one im like Trillian.

Sorry to be honest, but pretty much all "OPTIMIZERS" are junk. If you really want to optimize your experience, get BETTER hardware. I don't even use CC Cleaner.

Windows has been running fine for some time but attempt to update to Anniversary fails The update runs fine until the point after restart where it states The machine will restart several times soon into that sequence when nbsp attempting a restart the machine switches itself off instead When I then switch it back on manually the update is lost and the system resets itself to the previous Windows version A Microsoft technician worked for hours before concluding that I would have to do a full clean BIOS to 10 issue? Anniversary fails version Windows update - WIndows installation after which all files and applications would be lost and needed to be reinstalled nbsp I have been wondering if the faulty restart behaviour is related to the BIOS somehow and I have had it reinstalled from HPs site with no change So my questions areCan BIOS be the cause Btw I have turned the fast restart option under power schemes nbsp off I note that I got a legacy BIOS installed Is UEFI available for this laptop and would that make a difference If I do install UEFI will Windows and applications run as before or could other issues arise Windows 10 update to Anniversary version fails - BIOS issue?

This also happens with some files I generated myself. I can't remeber their whole history but I think the were WAVs made into MP3s by iTunes or something like that.

A:How do I download a newer version of directX ???

the books are the unextracted files. you need to go into the folder that you extracted the files into. once you're in that folder there should be a "setup" icon, click that and it should start the installation.

otherwise try this one ,it is a .exe version (not a .rar version), it should install itself once clicked on.

Yes, you will be able to open files created with previous editions of Word. However, if you create new Word files using Word 2003, previous editions may not be able to utilize all the features of the documents that may be implemented in Word 2003. According to Microsoft's website:

Backward compatibility between Office 2003 Editions, Office XP, Office 2000, and Office 97 (with the exception of Access 97) lets users of all four versions seamlessly share documents. Access 2003 uses the Access 2000 file format by default.Click to expand...

I know there is a newer version that the one I have. I have 6.0.2600.0000. The newer version is on the microsoft website. I can download it fine, but when it tries to install it, it tells me that the software is not supported by windows xp. I have installed it in the past before with no problems, on xp. I just can't seem to get it to work now. Does anyone have any suggestions why it might not be working. I'm trying to install it because I think my ntdll.dll file is corrupt. And ntdll.dll is a part of internet explorer.

The newer version is 6.0.2800.1106

I kept getting lots of pop ups from IE7 and deleted it as it was annoying me, I even got pop ups when IE7 was not even open!! I could not find the program from the install / delete programs from control panel so I went in and deleted the IE folder. I must have done something wrong here as now I cant install any version of IE, tried 7 and 8 and even 9. When it tries to install i get the message "set up cannot continue as a more recent version of internet explorer is installed on your computer".

I have been through so many forums and cannot find an answer, I even downloaded Mats_Run from microsoft and it says it did not fix the internet explorer add on. I dont want to reformat my computer as yet so hence the reason for this post and if anyone can help me.

Hello everyone.

I've been having this problem for a while.
I lost the CD's to my HP laptop and i need it reinstalled, but when i try, everything just seems not to work.
For starters:
- When i want to boot from the windows CD, it just simply wont, it never finds it.
- So i tryed 2nd option. Use the install thing on the cd while in windows, and i get this msg:

(yes i know it's in danish)
Directly translated:
The installation is unable to continue, because the version of windows currently installed on your computer is newer than the version on the CD.
Since im "not allowed" to boot from my CD what the hell do i do? I dont have a floppy disk drive.
Thank you, Asbj?rn

A:Unable to Format/reinstall (Newer version already installed)

Why are you not allowed to boot from the CD? It's the only way you will be able to reinstall XP.

enter BIOS ( Setup ) and set the first boot device as CD/ROM. Put your XP Disc in the drive and disconnect all external peripherals except the monitor, keyboard and mouse, and be sure those are not USB, or wireless. Any internal USB card should also be removed.

Make sure you have the 25-digit product code for the Windows XP CD.

Once you set your BIOS to boot first from cd . . when it restarts you will see a black screen with a prompt "Press any key to boot from CD" . . do that and you will be able to delete any or all partitions and recreate one or more, then proceed to formating and installing XP.

That message can pass quickly, so have a finger on the keyboard when you boot. This will delete all data on the drive so be sure you have your important data backed up.

The prompt will appear after every reboot, but do not press any key on subsequent reboots. The setup process will continue with no action required from you.

If you do not get that message, and if you have another optical drive, try the XP CD in the other drive.

If you are installing on SATA drive, there is an additional step:

http://xphelpandsupport.mvps.org/how...ws_xp_on_a.htm

This is a site that walks you thru a simulated XP installation:
http://www.echoproject.net/en/software/catalog.html

These is a good guide to reinstalling XP . . you might want to print it for reference during the install.

http://www.techsupportforum.com/cont...icles/158.html

You will likely have to reload drivers (Chipset first) and applications, If your XP installation disc does not include SP3, after the installation, you will need to download and install SP-3, while windows is clean. Prior to connecting to the internet be sure you enable the XP firewall.

A:Stuck in infinite reboot (A newer version of .NET Frmwrk 4 is already installed)

You could try the .net repair tool, but I don't know if it will run in safe mode. I think a service has been corrupted and its failover is to reboot. The event log might give clues to which service is causing this, and you could then try disabling the service. You could also run sfc /scannow from an administrative command prompt.

Dear Techguy,

I bought a Sony Vaio Notebook earlier in the summer. I also have bought Microsoft Windows XP Professional. My problem is, when i go to upgrade to XP PRO, i get an error. The error states: "Setup cannot continue because the version of windows on your computer is newer than the version on cd." The computer than tells me to do a clean install. I don't want to do a clean install because I will lose all my Sony Support for automatic upgrades. Is there a way around this?

Thanks for your help!

Hi

I have a huge problem, hope someone can help!

I recently had my computer fried by various power failures. I have the hard drive which seems to be working fine. I have installed it in another computer as a slave. I now want to import my .pst file, but am getting the following error that says my file :

"is not compatible with this version of the pernonal folders information service. Contact your administrator."

The problem seems to be that there is an older version of outlook running on the "new" computer than the one that was running on the old one.

New computer Outlook version : 10.0.2616.0
Old computer Outlook version: 11.0.5510

Can anybody help me with this problem???? I do most of my work from email, so this is a HUGE problem for me. I am running Windows XP Pro

Thanks!!

A:Solved: Importing an outlook .pst file from a newer version to an older

Welcome to the forum.

They switched to another file format when they released Outlook 2003. Try using a blank pst to make the account file and then importing items from your old pst file. To Import data you will go to "File">>"Import and Export" from the menu bar and go through the wizard.

A:does ASUS P7P55D motherbored last Bios version (Version 2003) stable?

It's probably a good thing that you are scared.

A BIOS generally should not be updated unless you are having issues and have a strong reason to believe that a BIOS update will resolve those issues.

Why do you want to update the BIOS?

I recently flashed the BIOS on my P5N32-E SLI from 1404 to 1601, and when it was done, the board would no longer successfully POST with both of my 8800GTS 512s plugged in. Every time it POSTed it would fail either upon listing the CPU speed, or while searching for HDDs and optical drives. Problem disappeared when I removed my second 8800GTS. I wondered if maybe my power supply (460 watt Enermax, 33A +12V) was starting to fail, because it is a little low on juice to power an SLI system.

But it powered it just fine for about 4 months.

So that led me to believe that this BIOS flash has somehow caused the board to not want to POST anymore when both cards are plugged in. So I'm wondering if it's possible to flash my BIOS back to an older version, one that actually allows SLI to work.

EDIT: Fixed, see post 10.
 

A:"Update" BIOS to a previous version

IF you updated your Bios you might need to also go into it and re-enable SLI.

XP may be installing a default driver that is newer
than the one on the CD.
Plug in the camera.
Look in "my computer" to see if the camera shows up as a drive.
Check the canon website for software updates,if you need the software.
You may be able to browse the folders on the CD and run the
different setup programs for the software individually.

hello, title says it all. i'm worried about my personal files (docs etc.). somebody please clarify, whenever i used system restore, windows said "your personal files have not been changed". in which cases would that be so?

A:Can the "previous version" feature of win7 overwrite newer files?

Hello chatumao and welcome to Seven Forums.

From a Microsoft article about System Restore:

System Restore affects Windows system files, programs, and registry settings. It can also make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files created under any user account on your computer. System Restore does not affect personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos, so it cannot help you restore a deleted file. If you have backups of your files, you can restore the files from a backup.

BIOS than "latest" I found a couple of people with the same dillema on other forums but nobody really knew if they should upgrade downgrade to F D Any ideas links info EDIT I got SpeedFan though as with other My BIOS is newer than the "latest" BIOS..? laptops it doesn t recognize fans I was at over Degrees Celcius almost quickly I took out the battery and stood next to a standup-fan for a couple mins and it came down to around - And about mins later the laptop fan kicked in first time it s run today Much appreciated Harley Don t think My BIOS is newer than the "latest" BIOS..? it s needed but if system information will help I ll post it nbsp

A:My BIOS is newer than the "latest" BIOS..?

I would suspect that the newer BIOS has the same fan control fixes as the older BIOS, they usually build up on previous BIOS releases.

If this has recently only worsened then maybe the fan or fan controller is starting to fail.

In any case I believe you can contact HP to see what they say even if the laptop is off the standard warranty, up to another year.

Or you can try flashing the older BIOS and see if it resolves any of the issues, I've seen the F.3E BIOS posted on another site.

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?
Thanks!
Nelson Davis

A:windows 10 update from version 1511 to 1607 anniversary update - does not update

Can you check to see what OS version you have? Check in settings > system > OS build. It should show something like 14393.5 or 14393.10
