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.)

Hi: Run this free hardware analyzer that I have zipped up and attached below. Run the file, close the summary window and on the left side of the window, click to expand the Drives section. Then click to expand the sata/atapi drives section. Click on your hard drive name listed there.  The first line will be the Drive Controller spec. It will report the hard drive type running at a certain speed. For example Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 6 Gb/s. If your notebook only has a SATA II port, it might report Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s, or Serial ATA 3 Gb/s  @  3 Gb/s.

NTLDR is missing
Press ctrl + alt + del to restart

When the user does the instruction, the boot starts and the message repeats.

I really do not want to do a reinstall of the operating system; if someone has away to reinstall just the boot tracks.

Hello,I was recently given a pavillion dv9821ea laptop which was in bad shape after being infected with a virus. I eventually had to replace the hard drive and at the same time I upgraded the operating system to windows 7 PRO 64bit. I was unable to save nothing from the origonal hard drive, no drivers, HP software etc and since I installed Windows 7, the laptop seems to have several problems including not downloading Windows updates. I connect it to the HP assistant, but this recognises the laptop and only gives me the choice of Windows Vista as the operating system for which to support drivers etc. I wonder if you could help me by letting me know if there is anywhere I can download Windows 7 pro 64bit drivers for this laptop? my wife and I are both disabled and it would make a great difference to me if I could have full use of this laptop. Regards. Gerald

A:Drivers for Pavillion dv9821ea entertainment notebook

Hi, Gerald: HP did not support that model for W7, and you should be able to use the Vista drivers from the dv9821ea support page except the BIOS and firmware files. Additionally, you can read this helpful dv9000 W7 upgrade guide for some tips on getting W7 to work just fine on that model.

Hello katrapezo.  I understand you're having some trouble recording audio. Have you tried recording in another application such as Sound Recorder?  I'd also like you to remove your audio drivers and allow Windows to reinstall them.  Here are the steps.Click Start, type "Device Manager," and press Enter.Expand the "Sound, video, and game controllers" section.Right click on your sound card and select "Uninstall."Reboot your computer.Verify whether the problem persists.Also, what is your notebook's product number?  This document can show you where it is located.Have a wonderful day.

Sounds like it might be time for a reinstall to refresh the OS and overcome any lingering infection. Follow these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 particularly when it comes to drivers and Updates.

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.
● Problems with volume control lighting and HP Quick Launch buttons have been dealt with here where you can also get further support.

Several weeks ago I bought the new HP Pavillion dv9574ea notebook and the HEADPHONE SOCKETS do not work - there are two. Only the speakers work. Even when I put a working set of headphones which are the right size, I cannot hear anything through the hearphones. The normal loud speakers however keep working, although they should switch off when the headphones are plugged in.

New here and so I hope that I am posting in the correct place My new notebook an M -MX was in the warranty depot as we thought it had a dvd burning problem however that was not the case it was the media Anyway before it was sent into the toshiba warranty depot the level tech phone support said to get the computer to be like it was when I unboxed it days earlier new and old with now notebook ghost problems?? notebook Ghosted this was last month And so to my frustration all of my programs were removed however before doing this the software techie at the office Ghosted it to my Western Digital Storage Unit and then sent it off to the Warranty Depot While it was in the shop I used my yr old toshiba satellite which I am now typing on at this moment I was finally able to get the software tech from the office to reGhost my new toshiba new notebook Ghosted with old notebook ghost and now problems?? M on this past Saturday and left it with him for a couple of hrs and then returned to pick it up as there was not much in the way of programs on it and so it wouldn t take long to Ghost the Images back Well in my Western Digital Storage unit are Ghosts of this year old satellite that I am presently using After the techie new notebook Ghosted with old notebook ghost and now problems?? got my Restore Disk installed and tried to reGhost the image onto the New M it crashed He was using the wrong Ghost he new notebook Ghosted with old notebook ghost and now problems?? was using the one that was from this unit I was not happy especially after he claimed that he now had it Ghosted with the proper Image and I tried it out and it was very sloooooow to Boot He said it was my Norton I keep a log and had brought it with me and showed him how long the Boots took before it was sent off to the Warranty Depot with all the few programs that I had installed on it He had been doing other work and coming back to my unit while it was Ghosting and when it was finished I also asked him to plug in my gig SanDisk flashdrive and he went into My Computer and clicked on the drive and it simply hung there with the Timer showing Needless to say I am not happy and am wondering if the fact that he Ghosted the wrong image from my year old Satellite on it could have done any damage He said he would call me this AM and hasn t so I left a message with him I used my USB SanDisk before and there were no problems now he is trying to tell me that this drive has a peculiar install program that can cause problems I googled for it and found nothing I talked to the computer retailer a small outlet that I frequent and they indicated that it is simply plug and play Why the tech mentioned a problematic install program is beyond me as all i was trying to do was read the contents Is there a possibility that this notebook has been damaged by trying to Ghost this satellite to it He did do a full disc system restore the second time he did the Ghost Imaging however the computer is acting SlOOOOOOOOw to boot the SanDisk simply hangs there with the timer showing I would appreciate any comments as I am frustrated as to what is going on here I mean I would assume a techie would label the Ghost image with a name so that he knew which computer it belongs to Thankyou for your time nbsp

A:new notebook Ghosted with old notebook ghost and now problems??

Something you might want to try (it's a pita) is a repair of windows - this may fix some of the slowness issues you're seeing. The install program he's talking about is probably the U3 component of many larger USB pen drives. I think it's on most of Sandisk's newer large drives. A repair of windows might also take care of this. I seriously doubt that putting the wrong image on the machine and then putting another image on could do any damage to the machine itself - the folks here at my job do it all the time.

I now have Windows 7 on it and I really want to say that it was Vista that was making it hang when I would put it to sleep..Because when I put it to sleep under Windows 7 it does it in about 4 seconds, and when I resume it comes on in 4 seconds.. VERY FAST..

Have you always had this issue when first you got your PC?

The first thing I would try is to check Device Manger and check you network make make sure they are not set to "wake the computer"To do that click on the Start button, and search for Device Manger
Look for you network adapters, Under the network adapters and right-click on the adapter.(If you have more than one adapter repeat steps 2 and 3)
Select Properties and find the tab Power Management and make sure that the check-box for "Allow device to wake Computer" is UNCHECKED
Hope this Helps..and Happy Holidays..

I had to install a new hard drive on HP pavillion dv2500 notebook. The new hard drive is a WD Scorpio Blue-SATA-320GB. Put in new hard drive and went to install windows xp by cd-rom. It says windows does not recognize a hard drive. the boot options were checked and the cd-rom boot is first. Also when the computer boots up it says the NTLRD is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart. Can anyone help?

A:HP Pavillion dv2500 problems

Hello & Welcome to Tech Guy Forum.

The NTLDR missing message can be a generic term, such as "boot disk not found". Depends upon the computer manufacturer's preferences.

What troubleshooting steps have you performed?
What happens if you put the old HDD back into the computer?

Have you run a HDD diag?
This one? Data Lifeguard?
If your HDD came with a diag disk, run it. If not, download the Lifeguard diag for CD, create a bootable disk & run it.

Do you have a UBCD, ?

Do you have an XP Operating System CD?

If provided by HP, did you create a system recovery CD or set of disks?

Do you know how to make a bootable CD from an. ".iso" file?

The more information you provide, the more likely will success be achieved.

I have a HP Pavillion Laptop with Vista OS. Until recently no problems but one day the computer would not boot. Then I unplugged for a few minutes (5 minutes) and it rebooted fine. I ran the norton 360 ver 2.0 and found a virus which was quarintined. The computer continues to be intermitint. It attempts to access the hard drive, and the lights flash but it never shows on the display. Shut it off for 10-15 minutes and Vista boots. I can access the internet, any program I desire, but if it goes to sleep or turned off, its back to the same problem. "Any Ideas" Registry? F2 Boot program change? HELP. sprintercoach11

A:HP Pavillion Booting Problems

Physical problem, probably PSU. Is this problem caused while being plugged in to AC adapter, on battery power, or both?
Relevancy 46.87%

this is my friend's laptop. he says this problem came out of nowhere (i.e., he didn't drop it, expose it to extreme heat or
cold, etc.). basically, numerous red pixels appear where the display should otherwise be black. for example, when booting
the computer, the black background behind the "windows xp" logo is almost completely red.

obviously, i can't upload a picture to illustate the problem, as it is only evident on the pavillion's monitor. i've tried
adjusting the color and gamma settings and re-installing the display drivers with no luck. i fear these may all be dead
pixels, but i'd like to know for sure before giving him the verdict.

his computer is running windows xp home.

A:hp pavillion n5495 monitor problems

It does indeed sound like either a fault in the panel, or given the sudden large number of "stuck" red pixels a fault in the driver electronics.

Hi all, Can somebody please aid some help my way at all?
I am running Windows 8.1 which i purchased and downloaded over wifi so all legit.
Since installing it i have had problems when starting my laptop or when my laptop goes to sleep.
When i turn on my Pavillion dv6 the Blue window shows but no circular dots and after about 10 secs my screen goes black and stays that way. I have waited nearly 2 hours just incase it was updating in the past but it does this everytime. If i restart i.e force close the computer as that's all i can do as there isn't any response from said comp and reboot it does exactly the same but then starts after about 1 minute. In this time the mouse is switching on and off. Also crashes if the comp goes to sleep too.
Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance folks.

A:Windows 8.1 problems on startup on HP Pavillion dv6

Hello Bob,

So how did you do the installation? Did you attempt a clean install or just upgrade your existing OS to 8.1? If a clean install, did you keep the existing partition structure or did you wipe the hard drive clean? If you just upgraded, did you chaeck for the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website? Also, what was your previous OS? Win 7 or 8? The reason I mentioned 7 is because I assume you now have a legitimate key for 8.1; whereas, many of us, that did the upgrade, do not have that 8.1 key.

I'm trying to fix a friends laptop its a 32bit Vista HP Pavillion DV9500 laptop, and the built in webcam doesnt seem to be working.

I've been searching the internet for ages and can't to seem much help, apart from the following:

Testing in QuickPlay, which I have and dont get an option to view webcam.
Update drivers, cant seem to find any drivers, although can't seem to find any hardware or software associated with the webcam on the laptop. (this might be the problem)
Set up in Windows Live Messenger
Set up in Yahoo
Set up in Skype
None of the above work. Has anyone else had similar problems with this laptop, or does anyone know where I can get some software I can use to get it working?

Many thanks

The driver should be the latest one for the adapter from HP's web site. What adapter (brand and model) is it?

What do you mean the WLAN disappears? Do you mean the wireless adapter disappears from Device Manager? I don't understand all the reinstalls.

By the way, I have found HP's email support to be pretty good.

I have an HP Pavillion G72 which had a cracked screen and so I replaced the screen like I did with my other laptops. The original LED screen has a code of LP173WD1, it was replaced by a LTN173KT01-DO1. The retailer has shown that these replacements are compatible with each other and my friend had no problems with his. After I replaced mine, I experienced green lines, pink bars and somehow a double screen on my Pavillion. I've tried updating my drivers and BIOS as well. Could anyone direct me to further troubleshooting steps before I decide to return the new screen?

Hi, If the machine has been previously upgraded to 10, a hardware profile ( Digital Entitlement ) will have been recorded by the activation servers. As long as the previous installation of Windows 10 had activated Ok after the upgrade from Windows 7, you can just create your own installation media and perform a clean installation of Windows 10 as detailed in the guide on the following link.  Note: At the activation screen, select 'I don't have a Product key' - Windows will activate automatically once the installation has completed. Regards, DP-K

I have a CompUSA PC AmeriPro PII and I m having problems with a DVD-Rom that use to work but recently stopped After hours of looking at this thing I think I have narrowed down the problem I am fortunate I think to have of Problems Notebook DVD these systems with the same setup so I am able to compare one system to the other By doing this I have found Windows on one Notebook DVD Problems system does not have the secondary IDE controller installed while the other does I know this is why I can t see the Notebook DVD Problems drive in Windows but why wouldn t I be able to see it in dos I also compared all Bios settings and ensured that they were the same including the Bios version While in the Bios I noticed that secondary master and slave were both set to auto I assuming that since the other is set the same way and works that the computer automatically recognizes the drive type But I also tried to set the secondary master to CDROM thinking that I would force it find a CDROM and my problems would be over But of coarse no luck Another thought would be that the drive was bad so I installed another one and still no luck I m dreading the thought that the controller is bad but would like someone to help determine that being true or false Any ideas nbsp

What happens if you take the bad drive and put it on the working computer, does it work or fail

I no nothing about notebooks, never had one, but I would suspect a bad connection somewhere. If windows was recognizing the drive it would reinstall the secondary ide controller on reboot.

My HP Pavillion Notebook is only 2 years old.  Have been getting a sad face with error message and laptop shuts down and restarts. Doesn't save anything in word document, pdf or excel.  Started making weird noises in class. My 2 year extended warranty on notebook expired 2 weeks ago. Not sure if this is hard drive problems or what? Best Buy wants over $ 200 to do a diagnostic on hard drive. With extended warranty and this amount - I could purchase a new laptop. Only use it for school work - taking notes, etc. Computer was cleaned out in Feb. 2016 with viruses, etc. and updated.  Please help me figure out what is wrong and least amount to fix.  I am a struggling student. Thank you.

A:Notebook Problems

Well struggle to please give us the model number of the laptop. Please. $200 to test the hard drive? And people wonder why I constantly criticize Geek Squad. There are free built in hardware diagnostics we can walk you though but OH we need the model number to provide you specific instructions.

Just bought a new Toshiba Notebook which was working fine until yesterday. Now, I cannot get on the Internet with the wireless connection, programs won't pop up, etc.

Can somebody help?

A:New Notebook Problems

Toshiba has a notebook maximizer that will help to reestablish your connection. If the wireless is "built in" , has it been switched? You could also check your wireless device driver.

I'm looking to upgrade my Macbook's RAM with 2 x 2GB OCZ "Vista" sticks. I'm a bit hesitant to purchase them given how inexpensive they are (compared to the offerings from Crucial, Kingston, etc.).

Is OCZ infamous for poor quality/reliability? If so, then which manufacturer would you recommend?

RE: HP Pavilion Notebook ze5170 Windows XP
Three problems:
(1) My laptop (with AC plugged in) will totally shut off on its own, no warning.
(2) Long before this started happening, the screen started going black, usually when the screen is moved backward or forward.
(3) The Restart feature no longer works; I have to Turn Off the computer and then turn it on manually.

Help with any three of these would be appreciated, although #1 is primary.

A:HP Notebook with Three Problems

Hi and welcome

(1) Could be a number of issues, but more than likely overheating. A bad hard drive should FREEZE the computer, not shut it down. Other possibility would be a lose AC connector on the laptop which means it would be “without power” if the battery is also discharged. Another possibility would be a bad motherboard, which could shutdown the PC but would more than likely FREEZE it also.

(2) Bad cable in the LCD display; possibly loose, broken, or caught in the hinges.

(3) More than likely something software related. I would fix problem 1 & 2 before going into that too much.

Why are notebooks so difficult problems Notebook to work on I am currently working on a Toshiba -S Notebook problems Celeron running sort of XP home There are some major problems with the Windows system file When you try to boot it up it comes says that Windows was not shut down properly Choose between Safe Mode Safe Mode with networking Safe Mode with Command prompt Last Known Configuration Start Windows normally No matter which one you try it comes back with the same error verbatum Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt WINDOWS SYSTEM CONFIG SYSTEM You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM Select r at the first screen to repair I changed the boot sequence from BIOS to read CD before HD put in a bootable CD and it says the only way to repair it is basically to re-install the OS I don t really have a problem with doing that however because the owner does not have a rescue CD I used one from a different computer I am waiting for permission from the owner to reinstall the OS but until then I was wondering a few things I was under the impression that rescue CDs do not have the OS on them They basically just point the computer to a hidden partition on the HD to reinstall If that is the case is there a way that i can hook up this laptop to another computer via a router so that the working computer can at least copy the information off the laptop s HD for backup purposes Would I be able to purchase a full version of XP home and use that to repair On all of the computers that I have built well all of them except for one I purchase the full version of XP and I give really sell as it is included with the price it to my client with the computer If I was to purchase a full version then I should be able to use the license code that is on the sticker placed on the computer right In that case I would not really be losing out because I could still use the license code for my next client I am under the impression that the files are missing due to viruses In this case it may just be better to just wipe it clean I just wanted some options for my client Thanks for your opinions and suggestions

A:Notebook problems

Would I be able to purchase a full version of XP home and use that to repair? On all of the computers that I have built (well, all of them except for one), I purchase the full version of XP, and I give (really sell as it is included with the price) it to my client with the computer. If I was to purchase a full version, then I should be able to use the license code that is on the sticker placed on the computer, right?As long as you are reinstalling the same version of XP as was on the machine (Home vs Pro) then yes, you can do that. After installing the OS, change the COA number to the number licensed to the laptop. Procedure here.

Yes, an increase in memory will make win2k run both smoother and speed-up performance. If you want to re-install win98, you should reformat and reload win98 from the cd. If you need help with the reformat, post back and I will try to help you through it. I may be off line for awhile I am having problems with a new motherboard and processor that I installed last night.

Whenever I use the wordpad or notebook and even while typing on here the words don't show up until the last word is there.I noticed on wordpad that the curser would move then two letters would pop up at one time. This is making typing real slow. I first noticed the problem on yahoo messenger, very slow typing. But then I used the wordpad program and noticed it there too. I deleted instant messenger and reloaded the newest one.And the problem seemed to be gone . Then it was back. I have ran virus detection and found no viruses. So this seems like a windows problem. I'm running win98 2nd edition on a NEC GT 200 ,450mhz.

A:wordpad and notebook problems

Assuming your virus defs were up to date, an intermittent fault could indicate a driver problem or a keyboard failure.
Have you tried swapping out the keyboard for another from a friend/colleague?
To check a driver fault, you could delete the keyboard entry in Device Manager and then reboot so Windows re-finds it and installs the driver again.

Just my odd thoughts...

I have a Gateway Notebook.
It's almost 1 year old.

I have 4 USB Ports. Up until yesterday they all worked.
I tried to install ATI Wonder TV Tuner Card.

It didn't recognize the USB Port. I've had a logitech wireless mouse plugged in
for several months. Now it doesn't recognize it.

I tried plugging it into all the ports and the notebook acts like nothing was
plugged in.

Any suggestions???

I have an Acer Aspire Notebook I bought two years ago. I had this problem once, under warranty, which was fixed by Acer. Now it has happened again and I don't know what to do...

When I turn it on, the screen may stay black, it may go through the 'check program', it may start displaying a screen saver, or...
like it usually does...
the computer will go to the login screen, but the touchpad or keyboard will be completely unresponsive. I can't move the mouse, I can't type my password in, I can't do ANYTHING....

SO... What's going on with it?? Is there something I can do?? This is my only computer, so please help...

A:HP notebook problems (crashes and more)

Just trashed one the same model for the symptoms of problem 1, which were permanent and not intermittent.

Have another here with the intermittent problems in #1, the owner did the sensible thing and bought a new one.

There is nothing that I could determine here by thorough testing including disassembly, seems like a motherboard issue. That means its uneconomic for a laptop of that age, in my view.

I've got an HP dv5000 notebook with some weird HD problems I've never seen before and maybe someone can offer me a suggestion.. It will boot to the XP boot menu where you can choose safe mode, normal etc. When I choose safe it will start loading the drivers and at some point quickly flash a BSOD and reboot. OK So I thought boot up an XP boot disk and try a repair or chkdsk. Well when I do that XP setup tells me that no hard drives exist. Bios has a built in hard drive diagnostic utility and that does nothing and craps out. At this point I'm ready to trash the HD but I'm still wondering why does it partially boot??

A:Weird HD Problems on Notebook

99 percent of the time, I would say your hard drive is defective... probably the first four sectors have peeled.
It is not really "partially booting" in the way that you imagine, but is rather part of HP's system for handling the boot process. The BSOD is your clue.
Do not mess with it further, if you have valuable data on the drive, as it is perhaps still possible to rescue data while jumpered as a slave. But I doubt the drive will ever work again. The more you mess with it, the greater your risk of recovering valuable data.

A:notebook problems with drivers

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

I have a customer with a dell laptop that did the samething.
Most laptops are not that hard to take a part.
I had her pull the battery and any panels on the bottom, then
pull the top keyboard panel. Using compressed air to blow water/liquid
out as best as possible. Then leave it to dry naturally, 1 1/2wks.
Her system survived.

In your case, since you've given your laptop suffecient time to dry out.
I would have you disasemble the same way (as far down as you can).
Pull the ram, video, dvd, hdd, cpu etc. if you can.
Get some contact cleaner and canned air, comes in an aerosol can.
You'll want to use them simultainiously to clean and dry all surfaces and contacts.

This can and does work, however on a dificulty scale of 1 to 10,
10=hardest, this is an 8 1/2.
The fall back failure is any short outs your system got at the time of spill,
that may have damaged some thing. Water is not the greatest conductor
but it can short circut things.

the s3 graphics you have are integrated into the motherboard and this means you dont have a video card, which will cause a lack of performance. your display settings might have been higher than the maximum for your screen. refresh rate, resolution, etc might have worked for a bit thne shut down. this stuff im telling you might not be right, so i hope one of the veterans replies to this.

I have a Toshiba - Satellite A100-(PSAA5A). It is capable of taking 2 sticks of RAM 1G each. Though when I put 1G of RAM in each slot the PC will crash. Each stick of RAM appears to be good cause used alone in either slot, works fine. Even a 1G and a 512 will work together. But as soon as I put 1G in each slot it crashes.

Both sticks of RAM are Kingston 1G PC2 - 5300 CL5 200 - Pin SODIMM

Any reason why this is doing this?

Dell XPS 140.

Netgear wireless router.

Signal Strength - Excellent

Radio Enabled

The problem:

We cannot connect to the net. We get the tool bar and google appears to try to load and that it. The XPS can connect if we use the ethernet cable straight to the modem.

We didn't have any problem until my son loaned the XPS to his mom for a week or so. When we got it back we couldn't get it to connect. Asking my ex what she did would be a waste of time.

A laptop belonging to someone else has no problem connecting to the net at our house.


A:Dell XPS Notebook Wireless Problems??

What you got?

DSL or Cable?

If either? Unplug the Modem and turn off the Router?
If you don't have a Router then just unplug the Modem and wait a minute. Then plug in back the power. You might have to reboot the PC connected to the Modem?

If you have the Modem and Router unplug the modem then the router and wait a minute or two. Then plugin the power for Modem then for the Router. Wait for it to connect.

Your WAN (wide area network (internet) is down that's your problem since you LAN is up (local area network)
