Sudden Multi-Failing USB Ports

Q: Sudden Multi-Failing USB Ports

My current system was built in May of 2012 and has been rock solid until like now.

I have had 4 out of 6 USB ports fail on me at once. I can't scan, can't print and the only two that are working I have both my mouse and keyboard in them because I had to transfer them yesterday the ones I had them connected to for almost 2 years. My printer was working fine yesterday and then that port failed today. I have tried booting and rebooting to no avail.

The motherboard is a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H. If anyone can recommend to me a good solid Z77 board I'd appreciate it because if the last two ports go I won't be able to use my keyboard or mouse and then I'll have some real grief to deal with.

Any ideas would be most appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,
I am having a problem with my DVD burner (LG GSA-4167b). It is failing to read ALL of my cds and DVDs. When i insert a disc it makes a kind of laser reading noise and then stops. I my computer it changes to a cd-rom drive.

My first inpression is that the drive had failed but i only have it for 6 months.
The last thing i did on it was burn a movie to dvd, after that it has this problem, i have made no hardware or software changes only installed Lavalys Everest Ultimate Edition, which im sure isint part of the problem.

Any help would be great as i need this urgently to burn some data.
 

A:LG Super Multi DVD Drive Failing To Read !!!

Hi

From the threads I have read on here, most DVD burners have a very short life span, the more you use the less time it lasts basically. it is possible that the disks you have may be faulty, that to has been mentioned here before and people who have changed their brand of disks sometimes find the problem stops.

I dont think there are any DVD test tools you can use to test it but I may be wrong.

If it is faulty, I would suggest buying a better brand than LG, these are the cheapest on the market and use 3rd party boards inside. I'm no definative expert on what is the best make to buy, but like anything else you get what you pay for.

Regards

I recently purchased an LG External DVD-RW drive and it did fine for about 9 discs. Now all of a sudden I tried to copy files to a DVD+R disc last night and after 5 failed discs in a row I gave up. It starts with about 1.1MB written to the drive then it sits and makes a bunch of noise for a while then after about 3-4 minutes it brings up an error in Roxio saying the disc writing process failed and to try again. I've tried with several different brands of discs thinking the discs were bad, still the same problem.

I'm beginning to think the drive itself is bad. Since I've had the drive it seems to be pretty picky about reading discs, or recognizing a disc is in the drive, and seems to make very strange noises while attempting the write process.

You may want to try a different burning program. Roxio has been known to be buggy. It may not be Roxio but its worth a try. The Roxio Drag to Disc program has also been known to interfere with CD/DVD burning.

Try the free (and popular) Imgburn

I went on vacation and when I came home, my Dell XPS 400 which had been with my roommates, was not working. Apparently, ALL of the USB ports have stopped working.

Unfortunately, since there are no PS/2 ports on this computer for the keyboard/mouse, that means the computer is fairly useless. I can turn it on and it loads up, but since the keyboard and mouse, which are both USB, can't be used, that's about all I can do with it.

What could be causing this problem? Is it something that could be fixable, or is the computer a goner?

A:usb ports failing

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

This is a cheap eMachines(Acer) desktop PC, probably 5 or 6 years old, which seems to be about how long my hardware usually lasts. After being off for two weeks over vacation, the USB port on my backup drive failed tonight. I had a couple of other ports fail two years ago, never to work again, and in fact I found my old thread while searching. I checked all the things that I learned about back then with no good results. Is this likely a sign of a failing power supply and a common problem with these aging desktops? I'm thinking it's probably time to get a shiny new machine. I hope Win7 is still available. I'd like to see what you folks think.
Thanks,
Rusty

Okay, nevermind. It magically started working again this morning. I bet this old power supply is getting fatigued. It's time to open the case and clean it out anyway. Cool its innards off.

Hi there my old Tecra S 's video card died last week and I managed to find another indentical Tecra S very failing all on ports S1 USB Tecra cheaply I swapped my hard drive into the new laptop and everything works fine apart from none of the USB ports are working Power is being sent out to power up external USB drives but my computer doesn't recognise any of the USB ports at all I've tried removing replacing the drivers but no change Also as I had my old identical laptop for spares I even replaced the USB circuit board as one of USB ports all failing on Tecra S1 the original USB ports was damaged but still no change Could it be something to do with the version of BIOS on the laptop as surely everything else should already be on my hard drive Maybe my old laptop had an older BIOS which might make a difference any help would be gratefully receieved as I've been searching the net but havent got anywhere many thanks Ian

A:USB ports all failing on Tecra S1

Hi

First of all you are not sure if the USB port hardware is ok of this second Tecra S1. Right?
So theoretically it could be software and hardware problem.

Usually the USB ports are controlled by chipset driver.
You have replaced the HDD where the OS was already installed
I think you should try to install the OS once again on this second Tecra S1.
Then you should check the device manager if all USB ports have been recognized properly.

If the USB ports would NOT be visible in device manager, then I would tend to a hardware issue?

A:usb ports not working all of a sudden

Have you tried a system restore to a date before this happened?

If that fails, I would plug in a ps2 mouse so you can complete this process.
Go to device mgr and remove ALL devices under usb. Unplug any usb device. Reboot twice and see if your ports are now working.

A:Desktop computer USB ports failing

One never knows what all happened to a computer and its pieces parts after a thunderstorm. If you don't use a surge protector I highly recommend doing so.
Those USB spreaders to me are useless. One USB port has only so much current.
I would not use it. Unplug all unnecessary things from the computer. Printers,phones,card readers, hair curlers, coffee pots ect. Reboot.

Hi
i have this strange problem in my pc, suddenly usb ports stopped working, then i noticed the OS is not stable, ethernet don`t work, services are disabled suddenly, when i click on restart it turns off the computer instead. so i figured XP is not working fine, so i recovered an image of the XP OS. the strange thing is now some USB ports work and some not, like the port connected to the HP printer, it`s working, also the external USB hub, but all USB ports cannot detect keyboard and mouse. and the weird thing, the front USB sometimes it detects disk-on-key and sometimes it doesn`t. pc power and tempereature are in order.

i have no idea what`s the problem here.

What is the Make and Model # of your computer? Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? These devices need to have drivers installed. Even if not, go to the manufacturers support/download drivers site type in your make and model# and download the Chipset driver (improves USB) and any other drivers required in the Device Manager.

In order for an operating system to fully support storage devices that have capacities that exceed 2 terabytes (2 TB, or 2 trillion bytes), the device must be initialized by using the GUID partition table (GPT) partitioning scheme. This scheme supports addressing of the full range of storage capacity. If the user intends to start the computer from one of these large disks, the system’s base firmware interface must use the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and not BIOS.

I have a table that lists every MLS system,the state and coverage area. There are multiple entries for each county

I am trying to convert this to a table that has one entry per county and includes all the MLS that are active in that county.

I have attached a sample set of data to display the current and desired table structure.

Is there a way to do this in excel via a formula/s?

I have attempted multiple combinations of index and match but I can't seem to figure it out. I need to match on the state and then look to see if the county is in the range of County 1 to County 3. If it does exist I need to display the name of the MLS system.

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Recently I reinstalled the OS on my computer. It was shipped with Windows XP HE SP2, but I formatted and put Win98 onto the system. Needless to say, it froze up at the Windows splash screen. So, I uninstalled it and put XP back on. My question here is, is there any possible way to put Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows XP all on one hard drive, and it work? I know how to partition the hard drive accordingly for the deed, it's getting the computer to actually run 95, 98, and 3.1. I'm cheating fate here, since I know 3.1 probably won't run on my 32-bit structure system, but it's worth a try.

My system is a Dell Dimension 4700 with 3.0 gHz CPU, 256 mb of RAM, and an nVidia 64 mb video card. Any help is greatly appreciated.
 

A:Multi Partition Boot/Multi OS install

The XP boot loader will let you boot XP and one DOS-based Windows version (Win 9x or Win3.1). However, you can't run multiple versions of Win9x and Win3.1 on the same system -- unless there is potentially some 3rd-party boot loader that can do this, but I can't recommend one.

A:Multi hard disks, multi o/s partitioning

The Windows OS has issues starting from anything other than the C:\ drive, so you may have to load the OS in separate directories on that partition and utilize a boot menu to select which configuration you desire at boot.

As for Linux, I am not aware of any such limitations, but YMMV. Good Luck.

I have a 9800 GX2 card and always want to run two monitors. In the Nvidia Control Panel set-up under 3D settings and sub heading "Set Multi-GPU Config" I have the recommended option of Multi-GPU Mode, but if I select that, the second monitor stays blank. I assume because my card has two GPU's internally SLI connected and you (to date) can't run two monitors when SLI invoked?

Assuming that is correct

1. Is Nvidia working to overcome this major hurdle of SLI and 2 Monitors?
2. If I use Triple Head to Go, will this allow me to select Multi-GPU and still have two monitors and will I have better performance?

Kotuku

A:Multi GPU Mode Versus Multi Display

When you use SLI, the secondary GPU shuts the output off, so you can't connect a monitor to the second GPU. It's always been like this with Nvidia SLI. I'm quite sure if you use an external multi-monitor device, you could set multiple monitors up while still haveing SLI enabled.

OK. My computer multi-boots to Windows 7 & 8 right now. 8 is on an SSD.

I am thinking about adding another HDD, moving 8 to the new HDD, and installing Windows 10 [Technical Preview] onto the SSD. If I disconnect the drives with 7 & 8 during the install, then add them to the boot menu after, can I make the computer boot to the HDD with 8, have that boot menu default to 8, with 7 & 10 as options, and if I make the computer boot off the SSD default to 10 with 7 & 8 as options?

A:Multi-Boot & Multi-Harddrive booting

Clone or image Windows 8 to a partition you create on the HD, boot into it or Windows 7 to add the other OS to a Dual Boot menu using EasyBCD (click Download - no Name or Email required).

Unplug the 7/8 hard drive, plug in the SSD to Clean Install Windows 10 Technical Preview.

After install plug back in the hard drive, boot it when needed using the one-time BIOS boot menu key, leaving the SSD as drive set first to boot in BIOS setup.

If this is not to your liking, then boot into the hard drive OS from which you set up the Dual Boot with EasyBCD, add Windows 10 to the Dual Boot menu using type Windows 8.1. You'll now have a Multi-Boot menu for all OS's, but the drives will still remain independently bootable, whereas if you'd installed TP to SSD with the hard drive plugged in, it will configure a Dual Boot which makes the SSD's boot entirely dependent upon the HD.

Greetings, I was anticipating this to be a headache, since it only worked in Win7 by throwing spaghetti at a wall.

Essentially, I have a dual monitor display. The right monitor is primary, the left is to be used by art programs, movies, games, and other more specialized work (as well as workspace in a large project and running code next to blah blah).

So, my problem is getting the movies and 3d apps (especially games) to render on the left monitor, but keep all of the main functions on the right one, as it is now.

...

A side problem... I don't totally dislike the Start Screen; I think it can be useful putting it up on that left monitor when not in use as a live feed reader when not running a program there, while leaving the right monitor "classic". Any way that is possible?

Thanks in advance.

Temporarily add your PC IP into the DMZ and try again , see if the internal/external tests then notice the ports open , this will test if it's a router or PC issue....

Based on this info does it seem likely that the front ports themselves are faulty?

if i go to port checker it says connection refused on all ports except port 80? how do i force open the ports?

i called my ISP and they say they should be open and there not blocking any ports.

I have a static ip address, 24Mbit up 2.5Mbit down.

when i run my filesharing program (for sharing files between my and my clients) and they try to download a file from me it says it will take (99years, 99days, 99 hours) now i don't really have that long to wait

edit: and yes my network properties are configured manually (and not on auto detect) i have no problem accessing the internet myself
 

A:Opening ports, i have the firewall disabled but ports are still blocked

It would be better to open the ports in the running firewall than to turn it off. Firewalls load drivers, running or not. Many firewalls block everything by default when they are turned off so that the machine is protected during boot.

You may need to uninstall some firewalls to get them to open all ports.

So, unless you have two of those cards, you can't enable anything. also, unless your motherboard is capable of SLI or Xfire, you won't do anything by buying two GPU's.

Hi,I see you are running Teatimer.I suggest you to disable it because it can interfere with the changes you'll make on your system.When everything is done and your log is clean again, you can enable it again.If teatimer gives you a warning afterwards that some changes were made, allow this instead of blocking it.How to disable TeaTimer <== click me for instructions.After you disabled Teatimer, download ResetTeaTimer.bat to your desktop. (In case you use Firefox, rightclick the link and choose "save as").Doubleclick ResetTeaTimer.bat and let it run.This will only take a few seconds.Also,I see you have Viewpoint installed...Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad".

I just made a 5GB partition for windows XP. I formatted the hard drive and installed windows 7, then XP

windows 7 made a 100MB system partition. for some reason, that is now the C drive. I tried using EasyBCD to create a multi-boot setup with no luck. before windows loads, a screen flashes saying "boot.ini error" and it loads Windows XP

so right now C: is 100MB system reserved, D: is windows XP, and E: is windows 7

how can I get this fixed?

I currently have windows 7 home premium and I usually have about 30 tabs that load when I start my browser. I'm looking for a browser that is good at loading multiple tabs at once. I have tried chrome, opera, firefox, iceweasel, safari, and Internet explorer. I'm wondering if there are anyother web browsers out there that can load multiple tabs at once.

if it helps my computer specs are:
Intel core 2 Quad 2.89GHz
DDR2 4GB RAM
nVidia GTX 275 Graphics
nVidia 750i SLI mother board

I'm not even sure if there is anything faster then I got. I just know that when the webpages are loading my system monitor says the computer isn't working to hard.

Hi all,

I'm pretty up on hardware but have been asked to build a PC for my nephew and he's asked for something I know nowt about.....multi monitor setup..

What he wants is a dual monitor setup. That's fine, I can sort that. I know what I'm doing from that aspect. I've only ever built multi monitor setups for sound engineers before who are essentially using one desktop split across the screens.

My nephew however wants a seyup like this so he can play games on one monitor and have the internet / youtube on te other mon. Bearing in mind most games wont run in windowed mode...is this even possible? Or should I advise him to save his cash and just go for a single mon.

A:Multi Monitor Help

Yes. Simply "Extend" the desktop onto the second screen. Should be the same as you have already done in the past. Games will on the primary screen, but the second screen can still be used for other applications. Just ensure you get a gpu with the port types needed for the monitors.

I've made bootable discs in the past but cannot find a definitive tutorial on creating multiboots.

1) You can try downloading UBCD (freeware) and adding macrium rescue to it. See if this page helps.

So what I am trying to say is, have different sound playing out of the headphones than the speakers?

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to seven forums.

Yes there is , but you will need to buy a soundcard for your pc assuming it is a pc?

I bought a cheap one for ?10 a pci e soundcard.

I have my game sounds running though the speakers and voice chat through my headphones.

You need the onboard sound for 1 and the pci e one for the other.

Thanks

anyway the info is in the below this pc is 15+ months old


Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.50 Ghz
4 Gb ram
4850 512 mb Radeon (Ati) graphip card
Asus P5Q s775 DDr2 P45

A:Multi Bsod

16 memory dumps over the last 3 days
8 different STOP error codes, blaming 5 different causes
This one is most likely either a hardware problem or a video driver problem - but let's address a number of other issues also....

FYI - the Asus P5 series of boards have had some issues with memory in Win7, Please visit the Asus support site and the RAM manufacturer's support site to get the proper settings/timings/voltages for your RAM (don't use "Auto").

Also, the Asus boards have known BSOD issues with the ASACPI.sys drivers that are dated from 2005 (which you have on your system). Visit this link: http://support.asus.com/download/dow...ge=en-us&os=30
and look under the Utilities section for the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit". Download and install that utility.

I would suggest visiting the ATI website ( http://www.ati.com ) and downloading the latest version of the ATI Display Driver (DO NOT download the entire Catalyst Control Center).
Then uninstall the current ATI stuff from your system - and then install the freshly downloaded Display Drivers.

Once all that is done, sit back and wait for the next BSOD. If you're impatient, you can run these free diagnostics:

Quote:




H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
http://www.carrona.org/memdiag.html (read the details at the link)
http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html (read the details at the link)

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: http://www.carrona.org/malware.html (read the details at the link)

Then, if the above tests pass, I'd try these free stress tests:

Quote:




FurMark download site: http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
- Click "Quit" to exit





Quote:




Prime95 download site: http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
This won't necessarily crash the system - but check the output in the test window for errors.
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.

Hello fair14

Below is a method which should allow you run regedit, but you will have to download it with your other machine and then transfer it over.
The fix might not "stick" after a reboot until the malware has been removed. Please be aware of that.

Go here
http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm
Click "EXE File Association Fix"

You will have to follow the instructions under NOTE

Activation problem
Try these
1. The Product Activation data is kept in c:\windows\system32\wpa.dbl
Boot into Safe Mode and delete
wpa.dbl
wpa.bak

OR
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/312295/en-us

I don`t know how much of that you will manage as you will have to go to our Virus Removal Forum to get help removing that malware
Please read ?Virus/Trojan/Spyware Removal Help ? and follow the instructions very carefully; then, post all the requested logs and information in the Virus Help Forum
If you cannot complete any step, just miss it out and do what you can, but be sure to include this information in your post.
Please ensure that you create a new thread in the Virus Help Forum; not back here in this one.

Please be patient, as the Security Team Analysts are usually very busy; one of them will answer your request as soon as they can.

Good luck.

A:multi drives

did you set the drives so that a: is master and b: slave with the jumpers on back end of drives?? And the same with the other 2 drives?? Also did you check in windows to see if they are conflicting? Look in control panel then system and under device manager for either a ? or ! This will let you know if they are conflicting with something else. Also you may try removing them from device manager and let windows reinstall them

I'm interested in a few things re: booting...
 
I would like to be able to have multiple win8 installs on the same machine...in fact, if I could boot win8 from USB or external HD ... so much the better...
 
I'm also interested in setting up linux (1 or more) as part of my multi-boot system.
 
Looking for suggestions, pointers, etc...
 
I know the safeboot and other new features of the hard drive structure can make this trickier than it used to be...I'm also not sure which versions of linux require to be in specific places within the boot order.
 
Any help, greatly appreciated (I'm not averse to paying for products, either, if that's what it will take.)

All,

I have to simulate a lab envrionment for two LAN's connected to each other via a Multihomed PC.

I currently have 2 server's in each environment running Windows server 2003 (RolesC, DNS, DHCP) & Exchange 2003 along with 3 workstations running XP SP2. This is true of the second LAN as well.
Each network is connected to a desktop switch. I can see each network fine with no issues from any PC. Exchange is up and running as well.

Network A: 10.10.10.x
Mask: 255.255.255.0
DC: 10.10.10.10
Exchange: 10.10.10.11

Network B: 10.10.11.x
Mask: 255.255.255.255
DC: 10.10.11.10
Exchange: 10.10.11.10

Question is how do I setup the 2 NICS on the multihomed PC to be able to talk with the networks?

I don't know where to post this so here goes...

I have 3 operating systems loaded on my computer, XP x32, Vista 64x, and Seven 64x. My drive has 4 partitions, a small chunk for each OS, and 800 GB of Library space (where I install all my programs also). My question is how do I use the same programs across the 3 platforms? For example, if I want to use my antivirus software that I installed on Seven from Vista, it won't let me. Or things like WinRAR and video codecs for that matter. I think this has to do with the dll type files that are installed into the windows directory and maybe even registry entries that aren't carried over. I've done some searching but got nothing.

Any way of doing this besides installing the programs while logged on from each OS? If I do this, what will happen to my existing copy?

A:Multi-OS System?

in the majority of cases you cannot use the same installed program across platforms. They require, as you said specific registry entries and files from the specific os installed in.

In addition you may need to purchase separate licenses on some programs if you install more than once.

I posted a question the other day about using the correct Boot.ini settings for setting up a multi boot with XP and Me. What I should have specified was that I have XP on my main drive and Me on the other(not a dual boot on the same drive). I just can't remember the right syntax to set it up.
 

A:XP and Me multi boot

It's not as simple as adding a Boot.ini file. The problem is that ME can only boot from the primary master C drive. The way it should be done, is to have ME bootable and then INSTALL XP. XP's setup will do all the work. But, I'm not saying it can't be done. Excellent instructions here:DualBoot
It makes a big difference whether XP is FAT or NTFS. Study it carefully before you start. Have ME and XP bootable install disks, just in case. Make sure they work. Back up all important data, first. Good luck.

Hiya

Are you still having this problem? If so, have you installed the latest patch for CODUO:

http://www.callofduty.com/patch/

Also, do you have Punkbuster enabled, as many servers won't allow you on unless you have it running? I play CODUO online, and apart from the high ping as I play the Americans server, that was the only thing I had problems with before, as in the patch.

Also, have you tried different servers? Some of the bigger Clan servers may be populated, but usually its a paid server, so they're more than likely to be a stable system.

Also, try disabling your firewall and virus scanner. These can conflict big time online. You're only downloading maps, which are with the extension pk3. If you're not using a software firewall, see if you have XP's running:

A:Multi Monitor help

If you never installed monitor specific drivers and windows is using a generic driver, then that could cause your problem.
If you had the correct driver installed for the monitor it should save your info for when you plug it back in.
There is not a way to keep your second monitor from becoming the primary because the computer needs it and does this automatically to give you a display when the primary is unplugged.

I have a copy of XP that I installed on my desktop a few years ago and I wanted to install it on a laptop I own also. I was under the impression that I needed a seperate licensed copy for each machine that I want to install it on. However after listening to a podcast I hear that Microsoft will allow me to use 1 licensed copy to install on both machines, as long as these are both my machines used only for my own use.

Is this correct? So if I install XP on this laptop I wont get a hassle when I go to activate it?

Any clairification would be great, because I cant find anything on the Microsoft site regarding this..
 

A:XP Multi install

Hi, No, you have old information....with XP, it is ONE machine only per copy! Though, you can still multi-install with older operating systems in the manner you wish to.
With OfficeXP> you can also multi-install to a laptop.

You will have activation problems if you install XP on another computer while it is installed and activated on one already.

http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=1435&page=5

Product Activation

Windows Product Activation is an anti-software piracy measure that Microsoft has instituted to prevent casual copying of the Windows XP operating system. In simple terms, once you have installed XP using your original License key, you have a 30-day grace period in which to activate this license, after which XP will not be usable until it is activated. You may initially activate your copy of Windows through the Internet or over the phone.

Your License will remain activated until one of the following happens:

You re-install Windows XP on the same computer, erasing the hard-drive - In this case you will have to call Microsoft to re-activate the license, but as long as the configuration of your PC has not changed, you are allowed unlimited re-activations.

You install the same copy of XP on a different computer - The new installation will not be activated, and will have the 30-day grace period. At this point, you will have to telephone Microsoft, since Internet product activation will no longer work after the first activation. Installing XP on a new computer appears to be a violation of the Windows XP End-User License Agreement, however.

You change the hardware configuration of your PC beyond a certain amount - When you activate your XP license, you provide an installation ID, which is generated from a combination of the Product ID key from your license, and a numeric hash derived from certain system components.

The video card, IDE controller, network adaptor(s), RAM amount, processor type (and serial number), Hard-drive type (and serial number), and optical drive(s). It is unclear what the tolerated amount of change is, although it is cumulative. Once you have exceeded this amount, XP will require reactivation by phone. Unlike transferring XP to a new computer though, upgrading the original computer is not a violation of the EULA, and users are supposedly allowed up to 4 reactivations by phone per year.

When activating XP by phone, the operating system will provide you with a 50-digit installation ID, as detailed above, which needs to be provided to the Microsoft rep in exchange for an activation number which is entered into the OS.

That's about everything you need to know about installing Microsoft Windows XP. Explore it yourself. As you can see it is quite different in presentation from previous Windows versions.Click to expand...

I know that isn't the actual MS page> but it's good enough.

I'm having a problem with Windows XP. Every time I start up, I can only run one program. Then when I close that program and try to run something else XP won't run it. XP doesn't lock up. The pointer justs switch to a pointer+hourglass like it's trying to load up but then nothing happens, and to run another program I have to reset my computer again. It's really frustrating. It started happening a couple of weeks ago. I thought viruses were causing it, so I ran several different virus scans both online and using AntiVir. I found and deleted a number of viruses but the problem persists. In one of the virus scans I did find that taskmgr is infected and it was unable to be repaired. I think this is the cause of it b/c taskmgr won't open up either. Is there any way I can re-install taskmgr?

Hi and Welcome to SF!

There are 2 things that I suspect from the dmp files. First of all is your graphic card since directX was blamed and the stop code is graphic card related. SO let's try to re-install the graphic card first
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Secondly, Third party antivirus are notorious for causing BSODs. let's try to remove Norton/Symantec for testing purpose:
Download and run the Norton Removal Tool to uninstall your Norton product

Try MSE for now, it's free and well-known for BSODs free, good for testing:

Are you overclocking anything?

Please run system file check:

The idea revolves around a third GPU (Anything will do, so a cheap 8400GS would work fine. I used my old EVGA 7800GT) and tricking the driver. If you want, I can dig up the link to the workaround from somewhere.

You cannot do it with only the two SLI'ed cards, and I haven't heard anything about additional monitor support. This is quite annoying, since there is a serviceable workaround and dual GPU cards like the 9800GX2 are essentially SLI, but with multi-monitor support. Both mean it is possible, so I don't know why it was not implemented.

A:HELP! possible multi infections

Hello Baz,I'm afraid I have bad news for you I see you're dealing with Virut on your system. In that case, it's probablyly a lost cause - Game over situation and a format and reinstall is the fastest and especially the safest solution.You may want to read this why:Virut and other File infectors - Throwing in the Towel? So, I suggest you to start backup all of your valuable data/documents/pictures/movies/songs/etc.. Do NOT backup any applications/installers and Do NOT backup any .exe/.scr/.htm/.html/.xml/.zip/.rar files...This because these files may be infected as well. If you back them up and replace them afterwards, it will infect your computer again.I guess that's what's happening to you. Either reinfecting by use of infected data you backed up, or an infected external medium.Make sure during reinstall you delete all partitions present on the hard drive, and use the (slower) deep format prior to creating new partitions !!Read here for instructions how to format and reinstall Windows: http://web.mit.edu/ist/products/winxp/adva...all-format.htmlIf reinstalling is absolutely no option for you,then we may attempt another solution, although the outcome will be dubious at best.Greetings,Thunder
