Bootup issues with hardware

Q: Bootup issues with hardware

i think this is the right forums, anyway here i go:

i get the following problems when booting up the computer and doesnt allow me to complete the booting up process i.e freezes when booting up

here are the following messages:

Keyboard error or no keyboard present
Suggested SDram CAS Latency time is "2"
Conflict I/O ports:378
Floppy disk(s) fail (IO)

these messages are random and different every time i start up

the mouse doesnt work either in safe mode and all the connections are secure to the computer, at times the keyboard works. The only reason i can think of these errors is that after using an application that froze the computer i got this.

any help would be great
thank you

Preferred Solution: Bootup issues with hardware

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.)

I'm a newbie & I don't know which forum to go to, sorry if I'm in the wrong one. I've loaded winxp on my system & before I could finish protecting it, norton's & spyware programs, a virus or something got on my drives (got 2) and now every time I bootup I get "found new hardware" & it finds both my disk drives & my cd drives as well as some that have symbols & numbers in them. I've seen this before on my neighbors pc & they had to format & start over, that fixed theirs. I don't want to format my d drive because of all the data on it. I have a backup, but not a current one. besides its a lot of work to restore it. has anyone seen this problem & how do I fix it!!!!!

A:on every bootup I get found new hardware

use your existing protection to attemp to rid your computer of the malicious code. you may have to download one or more removal tools (security.symantec.com). which particular protective softwares do you have already? make sure they are both upo-to date before going after the viruses.

Win 98 on a Pentium 133.
PC boots past the BIOS, it seems, and then hangs and freezes when the screen says:
"Scanning DMI pool...."

This happens on boot to floppy or to hard drive.

What's that mean?

Thanks in advance, you guys are lifesavers!

A:BSOD After bootup. No new hardware - Driver issue?

What about the network adapter issue? You did not responded there. I think you should have marked that one as solved before starting a new discussion.

This time it is a display issue. And the display driver is the latest, 340.52 WHQL.

I installed a Pioneer DVD R/RW into a Dell XP pro machine. Before connecting the cables I downloaded the drivers from the Pioneer website because there was no disc available. I shut down, connected cables, rebooted, went through the found new hardware prompts. The auto driver installer was unable to see the drivers I downloaded. There was an UPGDVD.exe file that accessed DOS and updated the drivers that way. The device works fine.

The problem is that I still get a "new hardware found" popup upon start up and following the instructions w/ automatically searching or looking in a specific place is unsuccessful. The device still works fine after canceling the pop up. It is just annoying and I would like to remedy it.

Device manager sees the DVD burner and says it is working properly.

Suggestions?? Thank you in advance.

A:How do I randomize all hardware serial numbers each bootup?

Not sure how about the serial numbers or why you're doing this, but there are command line programs to change MAC addresses, it should be easy enough to write a program to send random values to it on boot up.

Hey this is my first time posting here but I'm familiar with BSOD's fault. hardware during Windows bootup, suspecting forums and such Well I might as well describe my problem I have a HP Pavilion dv ca laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium CPU AMD Turion X GHz Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce Go M RAM Gb DDR Well Windows BSOD's during bootup, suspecting hardware fault. this all started out a few weeks ago I was busy doing my normal stuff browsing the web talking to my friends on Skype and listening to music in iTunes when I get a notification for an update to bring iTunes up to I did the update and the process went smoothly But then things started to go horribly wrong for me During the reboot sequence Vista blue screened and went into autorestart Unfortunately I was unable to make out what the message said During POST everything was fine but when Vista tried to boot up I chose start Windows Normally when it gave me the option to it blue screened yet again during this bootup and restarted So in a rut I quickly hit f and managed to get into boot options Naturally I tried to get into safe mode BUT that's when things started to get weird It tried to boot but I got absolutely no GUI at all Explorer exe somehow didn't load up properly or anything My mouse was working as the pointer was up and I could move it around and everything but behind it was just a black screen Nothing else at all Frustrated I hard rebooted and did a system restore BUT during the restore I chose a restore point that was set the day before it gave me a message saying that the restore point could not be used please use another one That was an odd one So I fiddled around with the different restore points until I found a good one that was set before the iTunes install But then this is when things got really weird Windows finally managed to boot properly and I could get into my desktop But then I noticed that the internet wasn't connecting I tried to connect manually but Windows kept saying that the dependency group service could not be started This was getting a little odd So I tried to start it manually by going into My Computer BUT when I tried to do that Windows told me that it couldn't start it up at all and then afterwards I got BSOD' yet again Frustrated and going through a horrible anxiety attack my schoolwork and personal files are on this laptop here and I'm not one for backing up on a regular basis I tried doing another system restore THIS time it seemed to have worked out ok cause now the services had managed to get working again I'm typing this up right now on said laptop because everything's stable at the moment However I'm suspecting that Windows won't boot up right if I do a restart and go through the whole cycle yet again leaving me in an anxious mess Since I have no idea where the BSOD report dump is I checked the reliability monitor and it gave me this http i photobucket com albums a ityReport jpg - Part http i photobucket com albums a ityReport jpg - Part http i photobucket com albums a ityReport jpg - Part http i photobucket com albums a ityReport jpg - Part So finally my question is what just happened How did iTunes do this DID iTunes do this Is my computer still properly stable Is a Vista reinstall in my future I need some help making sense out of my situation I appreciate you guys taking the time to read this

A:Windows BSOD's during bootup, suspecting hardware fault.

UPDATE: A friend of mine that's CompTIA A+ Certified took a look at the computer finally and ran some memtests; turns out that there was a bad stick of RAM that was doing this. I'm grabbing another 1 gig stick during the weekend, so that'll be fine now.

So... if you haven't read my post from about an hour ago... here's the deal. Computer Crashed a couple of months ago ---windows wouldn't work right. Windows put back in...separately of other version in an attempt to fix it. --didn't work. Everything from the OLD windows is wiped, it is EMPTY. on Startup I have to choose the version I am on now (i named NEWXP) to start up, it doesn't just start up all by itself. NEWXP is already the default boot option. Any ideas on how to get rid of the other option?

It seems I have to go through a serious of reboots to get my computer going. It will always go through bios but then it usually freezes in a black screen or gives a read boot disk error. On the reboot it will sometimes repeat or go through the XP login. It usaully freezes while it loads the settings. On the next reboot it will load my settings and I'll have my backround and everything but it freezes. It usually boots fine the time after that. Any ideas on why this happens or how to remedy it????

Sounds like you have a failing hard drive or a bad master boot record. How old is the hard drive?

I also noticed that you didn't list your PSU, this could be the problem as well. Would you share with us the specs on your PSU?

A:Bootup/Network/etc issues with Dell 8400 (XP)

*bumping so my dad can find it easier for posting his own replies and details*

He's having continued multiple issues. The machine seems to be booting up now without major issues and beeps. However now he's having repeated Unknown USB Device errors, and such. One time we tried to fix it, the machine wouldn't recognize the external USB HD anymore. Took a bit of trying but we got that back.
Still having issues with the machine, though.

Hi All,

I need some assistance .. I have a friends laptop that seems to have some boot up issues. Once, I turn it on it goes thru the normal bootup and XP logo screen just displays and never get past that . I have tried F8 - Safe boot - all options and still at same point . Just display XP logo screen and sits there . It is just the Blue screen with Windows XP logo with some hd activity and nothing. I am able to move mouse around the screen. Atleast, I know it is not locked up .

My friend said the last thing she was doing was using a usb drive and safely removed it.

Any suggestions .. Please help
Thanks

I added a third sata internal HDD—every time I boot up windows asks to look for a driver—if I let it look, it will not find one anywhere even if i manually look for the driver and the drive disappears from drive manager and my computer—it I use task manager to kill the “look for driver process” everything is fine—stranger yet NOTHING shows up as an error in task manager! (ever) (the drive is present with drivers installed!) Any ideas?

Hi, This is my first post, Please let me know if this is correct forum. My Lenovo 11 Yoga recently had an issue with its power jack where the inner rectangular part came loose. I ordered a replacement power jack connector E54926 and was able to remove laptop cover and attach the replacement.Now, when powered - I can see a very faint "LENOVO" logo and nothing afterwards.So, I am unsure where the problem could reside.  I tried increasing the brightness which didn't help. Could you please suggest how to troubleshoot further. Let me know and I can fill additional details. Thanks in advance

This is very troubling, I get the attached error. Before it says no driver found it says "Searching preconfigured folders"

What I have done:
Installed the latest drivers from Compaq's website, including chipset
Scanned computer with Compaq's driver scanner, updated a video chipset it said was NEW
Downloaded the chipset drivers from Intel's website
Updated the BIOS
Tried using a blunt force driver installer (I don't normally use these)
Searched Windows Updates for any updates, including hardware
Under Device Manager, it doesn't show ANYTHING as unknown, exclamation, question, etc...all looks well there
Tried uninstalling USB from Device Manager and rebooted

Does anyone have ANY suggestions? It comes up everytime the computer boots, I have searched and searched Google and haven't really found anyone who has had this problem...

A:Intel ICH9 Family USB2 driver issues on bootup

Motherboard sounds like to might be failing. My only suggestion is to try SlimDrivers. Other then that if the system is still under warranty you could try having it replaced.

Update: Turned the pc on this morning and it took 12 seconds to boot, the hard drive is showing in my computer now as well. I don't know what the problem was or why it's not happened this morning but hopefully it doesn't come back.

Will update if there is an ongoing problem, if not I will be marking this thread as solved later on today.

If she had the "better" hardware and you had the "older stuff", then the hardware is not the "same", is it? If you move a Windows installation to a different chipset, then it happily BSODs.

I am having a problem with my PC It is a home built with a Gigabyte Issues Hardware EP T Extreme motherboard with a Intel CPU GB DDR Corsair ram Gigabyte Nivida GT video card and GB Sata drives set up in a RAID array I have tried overclocking and cannot Hardware Issues get it stable Runs fine for a time and then suddenly starts not to POST I have gone back to completely standard to see if I can find the problem and even with that there are issues The drive has two Primary partitions and one extended that is devided up into other partitions The first primary holds Vista x and the second is going to hold Windows Server as a demo trial Symptoms One symptom is that when it goes to power up the fans start up it tries to POST and then shuts itself down and does that in a continuous loop There is no beeps or any response at all Looking at the lights on the MB all seems normal To fix this I have to remove the video card and pop out the memory and put it all back in and then it works Almost as though something has not seated properly Second symptom is that access to the drive appears very slow but a read test shows quite good compared to another PC that is slightly under powered from this one Getting up around MB sec read speeds Third symptom and has only just started since I tried to install Windows Server Got it installed but the version I had must have had a preinstalled key on it and it would not give me the trial so I reformated the partition and started again Now every time I go to install it it Hardware Issues will fail saying the file is corrupt After cancelling and restarting the POST screen takes ages to scan through the SATA ports and one drive is usually missing I am assuming this is the cause of the corrupt file as well Other times the drives show up but the RAID array does not show up Only way to fix it is to power the machine down not simply reset and power up again and it usually boots up fine Sorry for the long post but it is driving me batty This is my th PC I have built and while I have had the odd trouble with the others they have been quickly traced down to faulty memory or a drive that failed I am at a loss with this one The video card is huge and actually sits on the SATA connector for the DVD but it looks fully seated and is locked in with the clip The only other thing nearby is a Draytek n router that has wireless It is sitting fairly close to the PC and above it Any suggestions welcome

A:Hardware Issues

Hello veldthui,
I had a very similar problem, (different hardware), i found that upping the voltage to the NB and memory fixed it for me, i don't suppose this is going to be that easy, but may be worth a try.

I think i would try just one HDD and a fresh install until the system is running OK.

Symptom One, does it do this when the Bios is set to default ?, because thats normally the sign of a bad OC.

Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

Hi,

PC Spec: Pentuim 2, 192 mb RAM, 40 GB HD, WXP Pro.

Recently, I took out a 32MB SIMM and replaced it with a 128MB DIMM, to see if it would work (feebie from work). When I restarted my computer, it took about 4 mins to get through the Tulip startup screen. Finally, when I reached the User account screen, the mouse (PS2) crashed.

I replaced the mouse with a USB mouse, and it worked fine, but now the keyboard has crashed. My serial ports seem to have stoped working.

From what, I could see, the PC has taken the memory, but is running slower than b4 (faulty RAM, incompatable?). The serial port problem may by unrelated, but seems highly co-incidental.

Any thoughts???

Thanxs,

Z

i am having difficulty getting my new pc working. i am attempting to use my old harddisk with win 7 preinstalled. it works fine in my old pc but when i put it in my new pc i get the dreaded blue screen then it reboots.
tried using windows recovery but that doesn't seem to help at all.
the new pc specs are as follows, ga-z77-d3h m/b. overclocked i5 3570. 16gb ddr3 ram. in an antek 300 case with 750w powercool modular psu. also with an asus gtx 560ti graphics card.
i cannot use the windows disk for recovery as i do not have a compatible disk drive currently. (the old one uses data cable, not supported by new m/b)
any suggestions?

A:new hardware issues

Hi and welcome to TSF the operating system is looking for the drivers from the old system so it will not boot at best you could try a repair but it may not work and you need a install disc the other option is a fresh install but you need a disc for that also and it then goes to you purchasing a disc if the one you had is oem tied to the old machine plus a cd\dvd drive

A:hardware issues i think ???PLEASE HELP

When you moved the O/S to the new motherboard, things didn't match up. The most logical course of action is to format the new drive and reinstall your O/S, most times you can't just rip the MB out and install a new one without problems like the one you describe.

Right now, my laptop has multiple hardware issues. First, it heats up very quickly, even if I am not using a lot of programs at once. Secondly, it does not recognize the battery anymore. Also, it does not recognize the C: drive any more because the system crashed in the middle of being wiped by CCleaner. Now, whenever I try to do anything on this laptop, it is exceptionally laggy and crashes a few times a day.

What can I try doing to fix these issues?

Hey everyone, I've got a problem..

I'm trying to play some CoD1 and I'm having some troubles getting a steady FPS of 125, I don't know why though. I recently reformatted and before I did so I could run CoD1 perfectly fine with a steady FPS of 125 even while recording. I've tried many things and I'm starting to think it might be something wrong with my computer. I've noticed that when I'm letting my computer idle my fan starts going and it gets a little loud, which is odd. Anyone have any ideas on what it could be and any fix? Thanks!

New build, am having problem with system shutting down all by itself for no apparent reason.
Have narrowed it down to incompatible RAM, or so I hope......
MOBO is a Gigabyte GAM-59-SLI S5
CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2.0 gHZ
O/S is Vista home Premium 32 bit
I have been told that Vista is very particular as to what type and size of RAM to use, the Gigabyte website does not specify what I should use either.
Can anyone offer help or insight on this?
Thanks in advance

A:Vista Hardware Issues

MOBO is a Gigabyte GAM-59-SLI S5CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2.0 gHZO/S is Vista home Premium 32 bitHi, you did not say what RAM you are using. Vista takes up a little over 500MB just to run. The lowest you should go is 1GB, but if you are a gamer I would suggest 2GB.however, the problem you describe sounds like the CPU heat sink may not be firmly set. Did you use thermal grease?If the CPU gets hot your machine will shut down. Try removing the heat sink/fan assembly and reseat it. Make sure that the fan is working properly when you turn it on.Please let me know how much RAM you are using and what type it is (E.G. DDR, DDR2, etc...), and what speed it is.Thank you.

Alright, so here's the deal: I spilled some acidic drink on the top of my computer and it leaked down to mess up and fry 1 of my graphics cards, motherboard, cpu, and tv tuner. So, I replaced them all and upgraded the cpu and graphics card.

When I came back into Windows, I had to reactivate it, and DRM is all messed up to where I can't even stream Netflix movies. I tried resetting the DRM folder, did not work. Tried reinstalling Silverlight, did not work.

I'm not sure what else to do here. Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi BP community,
I have been using my laptop for almost 3 years now and recently I have been experiencing 3-4 minute boots on my PC. I was wondering whether my computer is getting old and if these are first signs indicating that it may start to die soon. Is this related to my hardware?

A:Is my computer getting old/Do i have hardware issues?

I would be more inclined to look at increasing boot times...as an indication that I've increased the number of items that initiate at boot.  I would use a startup manager to review those items, either disabling or removing any that are non-essential.
 
AutoRuns is the one that I use, but users need to be careful with it because it provides much more data than should be fooled with .  The Logon tab in AutoRuns is the one which reflects the typical startup items which are not essential to Windows/system.  Of the items which may be reflected on that tab...the only essential ones will relate to Windows, the installed AV, and such...all other items are nonessential.
 
If you click on the Logon tab and then post a screenshot of it, someone can offer opinions about your startup items.

A:[resolved] Hardware issues

Slow computers are almost always malware. Download & Install Hijack This!, run a scan, save the logfile and then post a copy of it in the Securities Forum for an Expert to analyze.

Also, while you are waiting, download the most recent virus definitions for whatever AV software you are using and run a scan. A decent anti-spyware program such as Ad-Aware would also be a good idea.

A:Issues I suspect to be hardware

It has been my experience that anytime you get strange and inconsistant problems the first things to check are the powersupply and the RAM.

In this case the first thing I would do is to pull the side and run the machine with a fan blowing in the side to see if it helps. If it does, then heat is part of your problem.

Next I would check the powersupply either with or multimeter or with another known good one.

Third I would try with just one stick of RAM. If you only have one, try a different stick and see if anything changes.

Some background info This computer is a VAIO RA G I bought it refurbished off of Ebay in the fall of I kept the stock ATI X in for a while but installed a Nvidia GT by BFG the overclocked out of the box model and had that card running fine for at least a year The power supply of my computer at the time Hardware Issues, Help Please Weird was the stock Sony Watt one which was probably a little weak for that card and may have contributed to the power supply giving out Around November of last year the harddrive gave out which makes me believe poor quality components were used in the refurbishing process throughout The processor has a metal tube water cooling system as well The power supply I replaced my old one with was a mini ATX as that is all that would fit my previous Weird Hardware Issues, Please Help power supply was not a mini ATX however I don t know if the form factor would make a difference So about a few months ago I heard a pop from the back of my computer and the smell of smoke I wasn t positive on what the problem was but I suspected it was a power supply burn out I then ordered some cheap Watt Chinese power supply off ebay as I was short on money and had it working fine for a month for the most part The only issue was that initially my computer would crash whenever I ran something such as a graphics intensive game I later found out with a temperature program SpeedFan that the case graphics card and cpu temperature ran around Celsius normally and shot up to Celsius until crashing when a game was run I then took the power supply from the case and kept it outside while keeping the case open and running a fan through the whole thing I got the temperature down to about Celsius for normal running and at about Celsius for gaming Everything worked fine for a while I then got overheat issues again and switched out my gt card for the old X After that as the CPU was at Celsius about and maybe Celsius for games and everything worked fine for a while That s when things got weird After running a game on it what seemed to happen was another overheat but the computer did not start again when I tried to turn it on After trying various things I found that if i unplugged the power supply switched it from V to v plugged it in again it s a switching power supply unplugged it switched it to V again and plugged it in the computer would turn on fine This didn t last long after an hour it crashed again and would start up for only seconds with the above method I then tried running on as low a power draw as possible by disconnecting a harddrive and the cd drives This worked for a few hours until another crash happened that actually caused a loud popping noise like the first time my other power supply failed I then tested the power supply with my cheap tester which just has one LED light which indicates if it works or not and apparently it still works I then tried hooking it back up to the system but it only starts the system for a short while before crashing again And like before it crashed immediately when I hook up another harddrive or cd drive So I don t know what to do the problem could be on the motherboard or with the power supply and I don t know what type of power supply I should get higher wattage if the power supply failed because it was too weak or lower wattage if it failed because of overheating Since the power supply tester said the power supply was working after the popping noise maybe my other supply didn t actually break though I threw it out so I ll never know The problem may be something else altogether Maybe dust behind the motherboard is causing some issues Any input would be helpful thanks nbsp

After trying various things I found that if i unplugged the power supply, switched it from 115V to 225v plugged it in again (it's a switching power supply)Click to expand...

Hmm you may be a little confused here
There's no "switching power supply" exactly
That Voltage setting is dependant upon which country you live in, and what your current normal voltage is, coming from the power outlet.

By putting the Voltage selector in the wrong position you could have:
1. Blown the new Power Supply
2. Blown the Motherboard

You may need some more help from someone more experienced there with you
As I think at this stage it's replace Power Supply again and/or Motherboard at the same time

If it doesn't, start adding the devices one at a time followed by rebooting until  you find the device causing this.

Hi I'm new to this forum but have been following various threads for over two months now I have a Packard Bell ixtreme machine 7 Win 124 BSOD hardware issues? using the EG M board Win 7 BSOD 124 hardware issues? I bought it in November and since then have had BSOD crashes THe PC was brand new with Windows home premium x The processor is gigahertz Intel Core Quad Q with GB DDR ram I use two monitors through a NVidia GeForce GT card GB - VGA All of the mini dmps show errors that I think is Hardware related although I've read on here that this could be a false positive I have patched the drivers up to the hilt for every piece of hardware on the machine Some times I can use the machine for less than half an hour before it crashes other times longer I don't play any games other than Football Manager and the only software I use is Office and the Adobe Web Premium suite Before each crash the machine slows down with the mouse pointer becoming more difficult to control If I am using anything that has sound IE - a movie on youtube or on Football Manager there is a Win 7 BSOD 124 hardware issues? sound that is similar to a Fat Boy Slim remix as if it is stuck The crashes either happen when using IE football manager office or the adobe suite I have set all of these to run in Windows XP service pack compatibility mode incase the fact they are bit programmes makes a difference The weird thing perhaps just a coincidence - but pretty much every time is that once it has crashed if I restart I can generally use the machine until I close it down again without issue Which is the main reason I'm persisting with this as it doesn't make sense I could take it back as it is in warranty I've Win 7 BSOD 124 hardware issues? always built my own but had to get one quickly when my last beast broke due to some work I was doing at the time I am however loathe to do so because I hate things like this beating me I thought at first it was AVG which I uninstalled and replaced with AVG I then replaced that with Estat Nod I read a post by COLDSHIVER and followed the majority of the suggestions made by himself and others on this forum These include Followed instructions to speed up windows general housekeeping to get rid of stuff like transparent boxes switched off indexing altered power plan to high performance etc I have ran various tests on the Ram modules windows memory diagnostic and Memtest passes - no errors Ran SFC scannow - everything is fine Installed CPUID everything looks ok I thought it was overheating so moved it to make sure vents are clear Installed SpeedFan and checked that the processors don't spike get too hot just before the crash The Graphics card seems to run at a constant to degrees The four processors core run between c and c which i don't think is too hot Is there something I am missing here I have acquired a Geforce PCI card to try instead of the GT incase the card isn't actually compatitble but thats a major step down and I think that might void the warranty Is this one worth battling guys as although I can take it back I would rather sort it with your help Thanks Steve

A:Win 7 BSOD 124 hardware issues?

STOP 0x124 is a hardware error that's reported by your CPU to Windows. As such they don't contain much useful information for the average user.

A STOP 0x124 error is usually a hardware error (something's broken) or a compatibility issue. This link contains the most commonly recommended troubleshooting steps: [2-Int] Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

The dump files that I analyzed didn't have any significant info in the extra parameters, nor did it list any older drivers.

Okay, later this week, my computer went haywire. It seems that the keyboard ceased to function properly. The mouse click, like when using it in My Computer, left clicking would bring the properties and right click as normal. I though that I had some rootkit or something, and since I had another drive, I started to installed XP again, and while I got through the process, while setting it up (the GUI w/ entering CD key) it wouldn't enter in bn and nothing else. Nothing seems to be working. Used 2 keyboards and mice, nothing works. Booting into Vista on that HD gave me an error (not enough time to read). What could have gone wrong?

Hello,

I have Windows 7 Pro and this just started happening a few days ago:

I have recently uninstalled Office 2010, and then reinstalled it. After doing so my computer boots up slower now and starts Windows with a black desktop (No icons, nothing only the SuperBar). After a few seconds (around 5/10) the desktop shows.

I don't believe its ever did this before.
Office should have added a Q drive for its self it did not do that this time.

Is the any reason that Windows starts with a Black screen?

Thanks!

A:[SOLVED] Slow bootup - Black Desktop after Bootup

Office does not add any Drive letters when you install it. If you want to map a different drive or partition to save your Office Files to, you have to do this manually.
Go to Start/Search and type CMD right click the CMD.exe icon in the search results and Run as Administrator. In the Command Prompt type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y and reboot the computer. the Check Disk utility will run at next boot up and try and fix any file errors.

So I have an old PC I use as a Media PC.

specs
MB: Asus p5e-vm hdmi
CPU: Intel Core2 E7500 2.9GHz
RAM: 6GB

Has a few hard drives and runs all day.

My issue is it keeps dropping network connection.I right click and check the problem and it pops up Gateway and it has been fixed. This usually fixes it for an hour or 2 then does it again, but today I had to reboot the PC to get it to reconnect (witch feels like it takes hours compared to my laptop). Its plugged straight into the router. Asus doesn't even have drivers for Win 7 for the Mother board. If I cant get this sorted I'm going to have to scrap it and setup a new system and I kinda don't want to spend the money on that although it would be cheaper on my power bill.

Any help would be great.

A:Default Gateway issues (old hardware)

Check the power management tab for the adapter in device manager properties, make sure box is not checked to allow the machine to turn off the hardware to save energy. Try a different cable. Update the driver for the network card. Look in the ipv4 properties, advanced tab, put the address of the router in for default gateway.

A:Where do I begin... [Hardware issues galore]

When you installed XP, did you then install all the manufacturer drivers, or did you just let XP do it for you?

My suggestion would be to identify your motherboard and install the newest chipset drivers for that specific model, and then go on to install the newest suitable manufacturer drivers for the rest of your kit.

Hello,

Boot into the BIOS and reset the to default settings.

While in the BIOS what is the SATA mode set to?

Try disabling the auto restarts and see if we can get the BSOD info.

Restart the PC and at the ASUS logo repeatedly tap F8 to get to the Advanced Boot Options. Once there select Disable Auto restart on System Failure.

Instead of running the repair you may have to backup the data and perform an OS Reinstall.

That's a bad sign of Processor Failure, fix the first and then see if that fixes it, otherwise go new PC shopping, Processors cost almost 1/3rd the cost of a new computer if it's a decent Processor.

A:Networking issues / Hardware questions

it is not eseential that the manufacturers be the same, but it does cut down on incompatibilities. i would just look for the best that you can afford and check to make sure the can work together. my thoughts are that if it's not broke, don't fix it. i would say that google is your friend, but google is evil, bing is your friend.

A:Windows 7 issues. Hardware or Software?

Hi there, it doesnt look like a RC bug. Have you updated the chipset driver?
