Preferred Solution: 3 websites won't load

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.)

Suspect your hosts file is contaminated
get a command prompt

cd \windows\system32\drivers\etc​
look for each domain name in the hosts (should not be present)
(If you see something like 127.0.0.1 ***.google.com, then you can't get to google.com). Here's the test sequence:

find /I "amazon" .\hosts
find /I "facebook" .\hosts
find /I "google" .\hosts​

Relevancy 25.8%

So about a few weeks ago (not exactly sure when it started) my computer stopped allowing me to access certain websites. It started out with only a few, but now it is almost 50-80% not connecting. I do not think it is a problem with my browser. I typically use Firefox, but IE will connect to the same ones Firefox allows, and will also not connect to the same websites Firefox will not allow.

I have searched these forums for a couple of hours now and nothing seems to fit my exact problem, and I am hesitant to use the solutions from other forums because it might further hurt my system. I am not tech-savvy/computer literate to say the least, and I would need a thorough walk-through on how to diagnose the problem, as well as how to fix it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
 

A:Unable to connect to most websites -- not a browser problem

How are you not allowed to view the website? Does the page show "The page cannot be displayed"? or you are not authorized or something else?

Try running cmd.exe, type "ipconfig /flushdns" without quotes.

I used RV042 10/100 4-Port VPN Router. I've configured the dual WAN, and enable Load Balancing for faster internet. But if I accessedhttp://ipchicken.com/ my IP Address is always chaging? How can I setup the router sticking to just one IP address?
 

A:How to "Load Balance" without changing the IP?

Let me preface by saying....taking two circuits and using them at the same time, even with protocol management from the LB is most likely not worth the effort.

But for the sake of the argument, the first hurdle you have is that both circuits need to have static IPs. What type of connections are they?

Can anyone help me figure this out?

My new GTX 670 is regularly hitting 88%-99% load when running DirectX based games & benchmarks, causing it to quickly overheat and "emergency shutdown" my (64bit) Win7 PC after about 10 minutes.

But if I use OpenGL, the GPU load (via "GPU-Z") is closer to about 8% (but doesn't look as good.)

I discovered I can keep the load below 70% by setting games to "limit the refresh rate to 120MHz", but 70% is still WAAAAY too high.

Anyone have any idea why DirectX (v11) might be taxing my GPU so badly? Thx
 

A:70% GPU load under DirectX but 8% under OpenGL?

Because it's supposed to? Nothing is wrong with 70% if temperatures are okay, like 90*C range.
You can turn up fan speed or cap your framerate until temperatures are decent otherwise.

A:I7 2600K hitting over 90 Celsius under load

Might be worth checking the CPU's thermal compound. The thermal bond between CPU and cooler may be weakening. If the fans blades are not clean, they will not spin as fast due to restriction of air flow across the surface of the blade.

I have been trying to block access to proxy sites without success. What I have done works on some but not all.

I've used a program called Internet Lock to block the port 443, but still I can access the proxy site.

I've put the name of the domain in the list of block sites, still it passes.

I tried to find out the IP address of the website, but I can't find it. Don't know if that would even work anyway.

One proxy site in particular seems to bypass all locks. https://unblockit.cc

If anyone knows how to block such sites, without losing access to gmail, yahoo mail, hotmail, it would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks

Mike
 

A:How do I block https(SSL) websites?

I think www.hidemyass.com will also bypass your locks. You can check its IP address using ping or nslookup. You can also block its ip address using your host file.

Online gaming pc and xbox live both work great Websites are hit and miss Okay a little back story On around I woke up to find a very spastic internet connection Video games like world of warcraft steam games etc worked just fine No Most web won't issues.. load others at with all, no do sites sluggishness whatsoever Most web sites won't load at all, others do with no issues.. However basic websites all widely varied and unconnected would sometimes load other times they would just pretend they were loading circle repeatedly spinning like it would happen anytime You could leave that up for an hour sometimes without it timing out I chalked it up to a number of things We d just had several storms roll through one of which being a hurricane Two days later after work we called the cable provider because it hadn t improved even a little bit and I work with animals and have to routinely do research associated with my job I d get maybe of websites to load some I d never been to would work great others wouldn t even load when I frequented them in the past Yet this entire time we can STILL play online games on either the computer of the Xbox The man from the cable company ran us through some basic things they pinged various sites everything came back fine even for sites that refused to load After an hour on the phone the man was stumped Everything on their end and ours both appeared to be just fine So he tells us to give it a little time maybe something was slightly off Told us to call back in a few days if the problem didn t resolve Well two days later there was no change whatsoever We called back got the same sort of run around and basic tests finally they say to just bring the router to the local office and swap it out because that s the only possible thing they can think of We did this morning and nothing No change Exact same issues I ve since then searched through old and new forums trying to find a concrete way to get this back in order but resetting winsock and things of that nature have done nothing For details Windows Main OS is Mozilla but tried google chrome and IE with identical results Norton anti-virus have also disabled this and the firewall just to be sure but no luck Spybot search and destroy had used it in the past but only reinstalled it after issues began just to be sure There are two computers that are run through the modem with identical issues and one wireless laptop ARRIS router from Cable One have went into the configuration screens for it but have not been able to note anything amiss Right now I am able to look these things up because google works fine if I just want to search Clicking the links that pop up as a result either takes several clicks will pretend like it s loading but sit there spinning indefinitely or very rarely just time out altogether However I have taken to clicking the cached version of the website and that works just fine even when I have never been to the site myself personally ANY help would be appreciated It s very frustrating to pay so much for a service and then when you do finally have time off or actually need to research you are kind of just out of luck yet I could take a lazy day and play video games without problem Maybe my router is trying to get me to take a vacation Really don t want to reformat if I can avoid it and considering it s affecting multiple machines I m not sure it would help nbsp

A:Most web sites won't load at all, others do with no issues..

I'm using Firefox and it shows me some critical info when I access a URL

looking up xxx
connecting to xxx
waiting on xxx
done and the page is shown
(1) is the DNS lookup - - if this takes too long, the browser should show a timeout
(2) after finding the IP address of the url, this is where the connection is made and there can be
multiple issue at this point

connection reset (ie too many concurrent requests)
completed connection but no data at all
(3) data is being read by the browser and will continue in this state until there is nothing else to send.
Chrome & Opera will stall here forever {nothing shown} if (4) can not be reached

one test of the URL in question is to use TRACERT DOMAIN.NAME to see if it's possible to even
reach that server right now.

So I'm running two XFX HD 5770's at 850/1200 mhz, 85% fan speed. Air flow is pretty decent, although the PSU sits a little close to the bottom card. While gaming I'll hit up to 76-77C but never over 80C. I've read a few posts and reviews and heard that these cards can run sub-90C fine, but a lot of these included users running their fan speeds at like 60% or below.

My question is : Is reaching almost 80C at 85% fan speed too high? Is it safe to run this for 3-5 hours a day/ 7 days a week?

Thanks for any info/help you can give
 

A:CF 5770 load temps

If your cards are right next to each other then yeah, they will run pretty hot.

It's pretty common to see GPUs running at 80-90C and they're designed to take that kind of temperature anyway, wouldn't worry about it too much if I were you. 3-5 hours a day isn't really that much compared to bitcoin miners who run 24/7.

HP G62-455DX Notebook

My daughter have a laptop that she was trying to connect her son Leapfrog to it. She it connected overnight. The next day the laptop wouldn't load up but just shows a black screen with blinking cursor. Someone told her that it might be a virus. When I turn laptop on I can hit the [ESC] and it will take me to the black screen "Startup Menu." It won't let me do anything else but go to the black screen with the cursor. I tried to reformat the laptop but can't seem to get pass the black screen.
 

A:Can't get laptop to load (black screen with cursor)

Hello sir,
Could you give us some more details such as the OS, the exact process/incident after which the problem arose, and all the activities on the laptop since the Leapfrog connection?

For one, it could be plain hardware failure.
Assuming you have Windows 7 installed, have you tried performing a Startup Repair using the Windows 7 disk?
Once you power on the laptop, keep pressing 'F8' till you reach the "Advanced Boot Menu". Select Safe Mode, and see if you can boot into Windows. If you can get to the desktop, perform a malware scan.

If it doesn't help, contact your vendor's or HP's customer support/technical assistance.

Hope this helps.
Regards, Marnomancer.

It's almost definitely the thermal paste - make sure you clean off any residue before re-applying. Now might be a good time to get an aftermarket HSF also. Even a cheap CM 212 Evo would be much better.

Hi,

Can anyone please help with this problem as it's driving me nuts. I am getting the DNS error when I try to go to certain websites ie. ebay.com. I've been in contact with my ISP but they don't seem to know how to fix the problem. My system consists of: WinXP Pro sp3, D-Link 2640R Router, wired connection. I'd be grateful any help. Thank you....

Verity25

I have managed to resolve this issue myself....
 

A:DNS error on random websites

Hmm, w/o more info, an inability to access common sites like "eBay" suggests your "Network Adapter" (not hardware, but a MS Networking driver) is corrupted. A number of things can cause this, but "AdWare" is the most common culprit. The problem has always been far too common with XP (and earlier). Much less of a problem since Vista/W7 made changes to those essential services far more unlikely.

If you can, I suggest you try connecting another PC to the same internet connection and see what you get. Or, if you're computer savvy enough, I recommend downloading a free copy of Ubuntu Linux and connecting to the Internet with the "Live CD" (a way to test the OS w/o installing it.) Both methods will rule out an issue with your ISP.

I have a Dell that runs Windows 7 and I use Google Chrome. For some time now, my computer has slowly but surely not been loading pages. I had a friend look at it and there are no viruses. I have done all that I know possible. It is not the internet connection because my roommates computer will run all of them. Someone said I should add more memory, but I've only had the computer for a year. Can anyone give me any advice?

Which browser?

Recommend you disable all add-ons, quit the browser and relaunch it.
Also be sure to try three or four websites to be sure it is not related to the server end.

Hi Guys,

Got very good inputs from the forum on setting up my network..and its working fine now.

Got one more issue where I need inputs from experts for the best way to do it.

I have got a webserver running behind a router. Now I am planning to add redundancy by taking another static IP from other ISP.

And I wish to balance my incoming load between two connections.

What would be the best way to reach this goal with minimum cosyt involved and best security.

Do I add multiple NIC card on the websers, would that help

Or is it possible to connect two router to same switch.

or would HA proxy be of any help n addition to something above.

Any pointers to a good site or tutorial would also be gr8

BR,
hungrymind
 

A:1 Webserver, 2 ISP static IPs, load balancing.. how to do it?

yes, this can work with (2x) nic's in the webserver

Code:

isp#1=== webserver === isp#2

However,



I wish to balance my incoming load between two connections.Click to expand...

is not trivial.
As shown, the first connection (let's assume it's #1) will get the default route in your
routing table (that's in the webserver, not a router or switch). The default route is important & solves the question

where do I send the data when I don't know the IP address?
It's the DNS that does this and it will be routed to the default gateway
(see route print).

Adding a router +- a switch or two do not solve the problem.

The presence of isp#2 will only add a specific route for that ISPs gateway.
given
If isp#1 gateway is at 172.16.132.1
isp#2 gateway is at 10.1.2.1
your webserver is at 192.168.1.4
then the routing table might well look like

Code:

Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 [COLOR="Blue"]192.168.1.4[/COLOR] 20
127.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 1
[COLOR="Blue"]192.168.0.0[/COLOR] 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.4 [COLOR="Blue"]192.168.1.4[/COLOR] 20
[COLOR="Red"]10.1.2.0[/COLOR] 255.255.255.0 [COLOR="Red"]10.1.2.2[/COLOR] [COLOR="Red"]10.1.2.2[/COLOR] 20
192.168.0.4 255.255.255.255 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 20
192.168.0.255 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.4 192.168.0.4 20
224.0.0.0 240.0.0.0 192.168.0.4 192.168.0.4 20
255.255.255.255 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.4 192.168.0.4 1
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
the 0.0.0.0 ->192.168.0.1 is the default for all unknown traffic
the 192.168.0.0 -> 192.168.0.4 would be all local traffic on that nic
and 10.1.2.0 -> 10.1.2.2 would be local traffic for the 10.1.2.* nic.

THERE IS NO WAY to round-robin requestes between the
192.168.0.* connection and the 10.1.2.* connection

Load Balancing is frequently done by
registring a domain name
adding two more more DNS servers for that domain
and then choosing a round-robin scheduling technique to provide a different one to every dns request.
Using google.com as an example, there are FOUR dns servers
Domain servers in listed order:
ns1.google.com ==> 216.239.32.10
ns2.google.com ==> 216.239.34.10
ns3.google.com ==> 216.239.36.10
ns4.google.com ==> 216.239.38.10

Good guess; common symptom across multiple devices implies something higher up in the network.
I suspect you have a port problem for port 443, secured http (HTTPS://)

Using a wired connection to your router, launch a browser and enter the router IP address as if it were a URL. This will access the router config page but should prompt for the admin/pwd.

Now you need the Admin-id, password and the IP address of your router, all of which are make/model dependent - - Please post the name/model number of your router so we can continue . . .

A:My Acer Aspire 5536 won't load Vista

Have you left any CD/DVD's in the drive or a USB flash drive inserted? if so remove them and try again. If you have a card reader check there is nothing in it and if a blank is fitted make sure it is properly inserted.

Will it boot from the OS disc?

Unfortunately, if this is not the case, your hard drive has probably failed. Run this diagnostic from the hard drive manufacturer. You will need to use another PC to download the ISO and burn it to a disk.





Identify the make of your hard drive and then use one of the links below to get the manufacturers diagnostic for ISO CD. Burn the image file to a CD, boot the PC with the disc in the drive and run the diagnostics. You first need to set the CD drive to 1st in the boot order in the Bios setup.

If you do not have an image burner use this free software to make the CD.

- There appears to be a firewall at <ip address> (hop 1) that blocks unwanted TCP packets.

Both my windows xp and my ubuntu box have the same problem, so it's not a hosts file issue or a system based blocking software. Might be my router?

I did notice, that when the computer was off, I could still hear a faint buzz until I disconnected the speakers. After installing ALL the Windows Updates even this off buzzing stopped. I know this sounds strange. The Dell has on-board Realtek HD audio

Nevermind guys, I just fixed it myself. What was wrong was that there was an 8 pin power connector not plugged into the motherboard, as my old power supply had a 4 pin power connector, and I had automatically assumed I didn't have to plug anything into it. There was a little platelet, covering the rest of the 4 pins so I didn't know I had something to plug in there.
Have this exact same problem but only have a 4 pin connecter and not another one.

It's symantec burned onto a cd, it's not boot-legged, it's a company copy of symantec and it won't load. This is the only kind of anti-virus that I have available for me

DNS server not found is unusual. I assume you're using your ISPs DNS servers? Are you using DHCP for both IP and DNS?

I don't know what's wrong, but I can't connect to .co.cc websites. I don't think its a browser problem because I tried 3 browsers. Chrome, Firefox, and IE.

On Firefox, it says something like,
The connection was reset
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

I have windows 7 on my computer.
I also have windows 7 on another computer and it can connect to these kind of websites fine.

I was wondering if there are video cards that specialize in taking more load off the cpu than others. I have heard nvidia cards are better at this than ati. Any opinions?
 

A:Any specific GPU that takes more load off CPU?

If you think about it, graphics cards specialize and do all the graphics work, while the CPU will do everything else. It would be extremely inefficient for the CPU to try and process the GPU's load, and incredibly difficult to make it work vice versa.

There are physX cards, which really don't help a whole lot, are rare to find now, and were expensive.
NVidia cards also support using a GPU as a physX card.
Not very useful IMO,

fix the problem. (I had an error in one of them, so perhaps it was this

Why is my CPU temp shooting up to 228C when I OC my GPU to 547MHz / 792 MHz (VGA Mem)?? Or am I reading CPUID monitor wrong?

I just did a test, and found the CPU temp was only 53C Max this time...

What is going on? Is CPUID THAT unreliable?
 

A:CPU heated up to 228 deg C (load)?

Looks like a glitch in hwmonitor or something like that. If your cpu was 226 C, it would be completely fried, and you would have probably smelled something burning or melting. I mean, that's 2.28 times the boiling temperature of water.

This isn't my first system build, but it's my first one in 3 years.

I've got a i7 920 (D0) with stock cooling. I initially used the factory thermal paste, but was getting even higher temps. I just applied Arctic Silver 5 (using their instructions) and i'm still getting temps I consider pretty high compared to all my AMD builds in the past. I'm using a GB UD3R Mobo and my case is an Antec P180 which has pretty good airflow over the CPU.

I'm worried I've got a crap CPU? can I exchange it at Microcenter worse case scenario?

any suggestions?

Thanks!

p.s. I'm using Real Temp 3.00 to monitor the temp.

As an extra note I tried the other laptops HDD and it gave the same results so that rules out the harddrive as an issue.
 

A:OS wont load Black screen

Matthew said:





You're probably missing essential device drivers for your laptop's hardware (which would have been installed had you ran the setup on your system). Use an external optical drive enclosure or a flash drive to install XP with the HDD in your system.

Alternatively, if you can get into Safe Mode you might be able to provide the system with drivers manually. You could also probably get away a repair install of XP, but this too would facilitate an optical or flash drive.Click to expand...

trying this nowish just gotta download sdk so I can use a flash drive as I dont have a external cd drive.

Second I do wonder if this is the correct solution as it never gets to the XP load screen so it doesnt have a chance to realize its wrong. Although dont get me wrong I hope its the problem as its an easy fix...

Hi all,

It has been a while since i have posted, so hello to you all.

My friend has asked me to post this as she is having a problem with her pc. It will not load up, at first she thought it was the monitor as the monitor says "no video output" but she took the monitor to a friends house and it worked fine. The tower lights up and you can hear the computer making a sound as if it is loading up, but there is nothing coming up on the monitor (it is black)

Computer make and model is Iqon technologies N09-01284

Monitor make is Philips Model 170S6FS-00

I would be grateful if anyone could help, it is like the blind leading the blind x
 

A:PC will not load up

How old is your friend's Igon N09-01284, and is it a laptop or desktop computer. It appears it is a desktop, and the Phillips monitor is an excellent model
Are you talking about booting from the hard drive?
Age of the hard drive will make a difference... if it is a Hitachi, Maxtor, or TriGem drive it could be bad.
First test is to see if it will boot in <SAFE MODE> by pressing the <F8> button repeatedly once per second as soon as she presses the on button. If it works in safe mode, then she likely has a bad video graphics card or bad driver.

I've recently purchased two sticks of PNY 1GB DDR PC3200 RAM. I did the system scan at crucial.com and thats what it advised as my maximum.

I have an old Compaq Presario SQSXE1 which previously had 2 x 256 PC2100 running fine.

I installed the ram one at a time. Put in 1 gig, works fine. Put in the 2nd stick, Compaq screen comes on, the memory check in top right-hand corner goes up to 2gig, but then goes to a black screen and windows does not load.

I have tested both sticks individually in both slots, works every which way. I have put both sticks in at the same time and switched them, same results.

I'm not sure what information you need from me but I'll be happy to try and get it if I can. My knowledge of computers is unfortunately minuscule.

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

I recently cloned my Windows XP Pro with SP from a failing Hitachi harddrive to a new Samsung HD in my Tecra S Everything went smooth and the system immediately recognized the new harddrive The transfer was perfect Then for some unknown reason about a week later I decided to upgrade to Service etc, load to forever Icons, take Pack I ve read where they got the kinks out Hmmmm Anyway the first reboot afterwards loaded Icons, etc, take forever to load my background but that was it No Icons No Task Bar No Start Menu was displayed I had to do a hard shut-down and when I rebooted all screens loaded fine with all icons etc Today I turned on the laptop and it loaded to the Windows screen and then my desktop with no icons etc to be seen I shut down via power button and tried again The same thing Eventually the Icons etc loaded How do I rectify this problem The boot up time is definitly quicker since upgrading from megs of RAM to Gigs and going from a rpm HD to a rpm It is only when I get to the desktop that a full load fails to happen nbsp

A:Icons, etc, take forever to load

Uninstall or otherwise remove the service pack.
Reboot.
Defragment the drive.
Reboot.
Use RegEdit by Juoni Viourno to clean up the drive and get rid of any suspect registry lines. (Find on MajorGeeks.com).
Reinstall Service Pack 3 once more, watching carefully to assure that everthing was installed, and the Service Pack was fully installed. As you probably know, with your experience, this darned thing can take forever... Sometimes it is still running processes and install bits, when you think it has finished.
Regardless of whether you are sure you did it right the first time, shut down, then do a cold boot.
Reinstall Service Pack 3 and give it up to an hour to finish.
Good luck. Let us know if this works. It worked for me.

When I turn on my laptop everything is distorted, the normal load screen has some funky colors in the background and some pre-loading stuff (think it's the bios) looks like it's bleeding (the letters have some lines above and below them) then the screen goes black and the computer wont finish loading (no windows load up sound and when using keyboard hotkeys I can't turn off my computer). However, it will load up in safe mode (though, it has the same text distortions till it's fully loaded) I don't know how else to explain it.

I have a dell XPS m1710, nVidia graphics card (pretty sure it's 6800gts or something like that) and I've had a few problems with my display drivers already. However, this problem happened while trying to update from SP2 to SP3. I uninstalled SP3 and reinstalled SP2 but that didn't work.

Any ideas?
 

A:Laptop wont load properly

Start back up in Safe Mode
Log on to the Administrator account
Click on Start->Run-> Devmgmt.msc

Maximize the Device Manager window that eventually opens
Locate and expand (clicking on the + sign) your Video device

Right click on your actual expanded Video device, and select "remove" (it may say "delete" or "un-install")

Then restart back to Normal mode
In Normal mode, go H E R E to get your updated drivers

Oh and put SP3 back on

I got a new gigabyte board, because my old one fried. And a new processor. At first it was loading a tad slow, maybe 20 seconds of a black screen then it'd go on. Now it's taking about 3-4 minutes of a straight black screen and then it'll post ect..

I can't figure out what the problem is. Any ideas/suggestions?

Hello everyone,
Basically my WD external makes a clicking sound when plugged into my system and prevents the system from booting up altogether. When I unplug the drive from USB, my computer boots up fine (mostly). It almost seems as if the external drive is not getting enough 'juice' to boot up completely but my new system with 650w PS does not include any power-draining peripherals.

Is it possible that my external is corrupt? Does the clicking always indicate failure? Could it indicate lack of power?

ALSO, the room in which I have the drive in tends to see a fair amount of dust plenty of which has made its way onto (and into) the MyBook casing. Is it possible for dust to get inside the casing and ruin the drive?

Thanks for any input.
 

A:WD external clicks upon bootup, prevents XP load

It can be n issue with the USB plug
Yes dust can cause lots of issues
It's best to test it in another computer to confirm

But generally this sound is caused by a faulty harddrive itself

I have an HP Pavillion a1025cc. Our power flickered last Sunday and this computer decided not to work after that. It would power on go to Windows screen and then we would get a "boot disc error". I ended up getting a new hard drive and installing it. I then used the recovery discs to reload the original software. Everything appeared to go well. Then when I got to the "restart or turn off" choice of the recovery discs, regardless of which option I choose it will not completely load. The farthest I get is to "wait while windows loads" and then I get a flashing cursor on a black screen that will stay on for hours. I put the hard drive in another computer and it worked fine. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey, recently I've been working on overclocking my CPU, and I noticed (both in task manager and in speed fan) that one of my cores (on my Q6600 quad core processor (65nm)) is always under an 80-90% load even when it's just idling, while the rest of the cores are under a very low load. I am running 64 bit vista. Also, it takes much longer for whichever core is under a heavier load to finish a stage (of calculations or whatever) in the multi-core prime 95 stress tester. I have closed all programs that I can, except for symantec anti-virus, which you cannot close all the way (at least to my knowledge). Is this normal? And if not, what can I do to fix it?
 

A:Core 2 Load

This is more of a Windows question, but here is a starting point:

Look into Task Manager. In the process list, look for any processes that are using up CPU cycles. That's the first place to look. If you DO see a process that is consuming large amounts of CPU time, you'll have found your culprit. If you haven't, there's a more serious issue, which could be anything from a bad driver to bad hardware. Post back here after checking it out.

A:PC Won't Load Up

Does the system boot up properly when the external DVD drive is disconnected? You might have to disconnect all USB devices until the system loads windows and then go in and reconfigure each. I'm pretty sure you can't put the driver CD in the actual external drive until it's configured... that might be why it froze up. In order for those drives to work, certain drivers must be installed before they can be used so... put the CD in one of the computer's internal drives and try it again. If nothing works, the drive itself might be the problem.

A:Laptop wont load

swapping back and forth is a bad idea -- do this ONLY to extract important data.

Why? Each computer has unique components, especially the onboard devices.
These require unique software drivers and getting a system to run from boot to
the windows login screen still requires many of these to be exactly correct for the
hardware.

Place the drive where it belongs and then fight thru the issues to get things straight.

You are now going to need the OEM CD that came with the laptop and perform a
Repair or Recovery opperation by booting from the CD.

Insert the CD, boot the hardware, and hit the key for BIOS setup.
Make the CD the first device and save settings. This will reboot and run the
CD setup.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but I am fairly new to customizing computors in this way...

I am upgrading by adding a second SATA drive for a RAID 1 setup. I have had no trouble following the available guides to get through the BIOS setup and getting the existing drive copied, etc. My problem is that Windows XP will not load afterwards.

I am suspecting I need to install a driver or something at this point, but I am at a loss as to how to procede. When rebooted with the RAID turned off, the drive is detected by windows just fine.

What step am I missing?
