Windows 7 graphics broken

Q: Windows 7 graphics broken

I was playing total war shogun 2 on windows 7. Diagonal lines started shooting out of the characters, square block patterns start flashing all over the place. The graphics got progressevley worse and worse so i took in. They tested the graphics card and it was fine so they restarted the computer and then windows crashed. They reinstalled windows 7 and i started putting everything back together.

I just put total war back on my computer and started playing and its started again. I restarted my computer and all that came back was a blinking undersscore. Luckily i shutdown and it started normally but the graphics are still messed up.

Any help would be great.

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.)

Take out the graphics card and use integrated graphics if you have it.

See if the problems presents then.

Hi I was wondering if anyone could help me I ve recieved a interactive multimedia DVD from the Open University for a course I m about to start As far as I can tell it opens it s own program but it needs Quicktime and Adobe Flash to run it The program opens fine but then graphics and videos within it are broken only half displayed or not displayed at all videos freeze or won t play etc I ve contacted the OU tech support Broken DVD graphics but have had no look in fixing the problem I use vista bit home edition To date I have updated graphics drivers completely unistalled and reinstalled new copies of quicktime and adobe several times Set the program to run as compatable with Windows XP Broken DVD graphics SP and as administrater Checked there are no other programs using up large amounts of my CPU changed graphics card and drivers installed a vista codecs package ran DirectX diagnostic tool and finally as a last attempt I have formatted my c drive and done a reinstalled windows None of the above seem to have made Broken DVD graphics any difference to the broken graphics I know it s not just a faulty DVD as I ve tried two I realise I probably won t be able to get any help as I can t tell you what the program it runs is but even if anyone could suggest what could have caused this problem that wouldn t be fixed by changing the graphics card or formatting reinstalling windows that would be really helpful as my course relies on this DVD working nbsp

THis is not an issue of program, so you will get an answer. I believe it's an issue of Codex..

Search around for 'Vista Sound Codex Pack'. It will install more potential problems, take note. However, it will fix most and put you into a position to 'work around ' problems, instead of setteling for them.

Hey guys, just got a quick question

Is a broken graphics card enough to make a computer turn itself off right after being turned on with no other hardware interaction?

A:Broken Graphics Card

It's possible. Yes. Depends on the nature of the malfunction.

Not long before christmas i bought a sapphire radeon 9600xt from Novatech.co.uk. When i fitted the card and booted the computer, the graphics were corrupted, the white text was a bit mangled and the windows logo had green lines through it. After i logged on, the pc looked fine, but whenever i install the drivers most of windows is all purple and glitchy looking, and games are unplayable because the entire screen is covered in purple artifacts. Is this card broken or is there some sort of problem with my system?

My system specs are:
athlonxp 2400+
FIC am39l motherboard
Geforce FX5700le (current graphics card)
Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit edition

Did you connect the 6 pin PCI-E connector from the PSU to the GPU card? Have you tried to remove the GPU and re-seat it?

Hello there. My computers been acting up, slowing down and such, for a good couple months. However for the past couple days its been shutting down on me after 10 minutes (tops) of being powered on. I think its the graphics card.

I have an ATI Radeon (a newer one, only a couple months older than my computer issues) and i just logged on to my computer and figured i'd look at the control center. I had overdrive on and so i shut that off, hoping it would help the tempurature, and no, to my disdane i watched as the graphics card tempurature skyrocketed from 70 c to over 110c and eventually the computer just shut off (not long after)

Can anyone help me out? Is there a driver i could get or something to prevent this overheating?
Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Make sure the fan on the card is actually running.
Make sure your power supply has enough power
to run the card and the rest of the components
in the computer.
Make sure there is adequate cooling in the case.

Might try ATI tool to setup a fan profile and increase the fan speed.
Many cards ship with the fan speed set low.

Hi guys,

I recently got home from a 2 week holiday, powered my pc on...everything was fine. However the next day my monitors both have no signal (I have a dual split screen setup). The PC seems to be working fine, I can hear the Windows startup chime but no signal to either screen, no bios or anything. Monitors just blinking with no signal. Is my GPU broken? It was a top of the line Radeon GPU a couple years ago. I would like to hear your opinions before I splash the cash on another high end GPU.

Cheers
 

A:Is my graphics card broken?

First things to check are the cable connections - reseat them and see if there is a change. Other possibility is bad cables, but unlikely both would fail at the same time. Reseat the card, try in different PCIe slot, make sure it's getting adequate power.

Is the card still under warranty? Depending on the manufacturer you might catch a break and have had like a 3 year warranty.

Hey guys I'm in a pretty bad situation right now. My graphics card has died on the computer I share with my brother. It seems to work fine until I run a game that uses graphics. I've tried plugging it out, and plugging it back in and cleaning the dust, updating graphics driver, etc but it's not working out.

or

it will just freeze and little random objects pop up on the screen and the monitor dies (but the computer is still running).

Thank you so much to whoever that can help me fix this

my graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2 GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0
motherboard = MSI Z87-G45 ATX Pro Gaming Motherboard (SLI Support)

A:graphics card broken please help

What brand card and can you RMA it? Does it it work in safemode? You should get furmark and see what it says your temps are when running the basic test. Sounds like your card needs whats called reflowed. You only want to attempt this if you have no other options as it requires you to take off the heatsink and bake your card.

A:Graphics card broken, which of these is better?

If you budget is that high then look a Geforce 7900 series card.

The 7900GS is in that range and superior the the X850XT.

A:Broken graphics card

What PSU, brand and wattage does the system have?
Having power issues via USB and graphics card issues with higher power consumption/newer more graphically intensive games would have me wondering if there is an issue with it.

There is no issue with DDR3/GDDR5 compatibility. The video memory mounted on the graphics card is accessed via the PCI-E bus that the graphics card is connected to the motherboard with. It doesn't rely on the memory controllers/chipset of the motherboard. Only the system memory (Kingston ValueR. DDR3 1333MHz 4GB) in the motherboard memory slots needs to be DDR3.

A:Broken graphics card?

try uninstalling current driver, installing the card, and botting up. if it works install the most recent driver.

other than that i don't see why a new cpu fan would disturb how your gfx card operates. post ur computer specs to us.

For the past few days loading any 3d programs resulted in a freezing of the screen for 30 seconds or so. Lately, this has been replaced by very big graphics glitches forcing a restart. The last time, on boot, the screen had 6 green dashed lines. ( I think meaning fried video ram or something)

It did not want to go to to XP unless booted in safe mode.

Borrowed a friends old X1300 and it works. So definately a graphics card problem

Spec: P5K-E Wifi/ap
Asus 8800GTS 320MB
Intel C2D stock at 2.66 OCed to 3.5
2GB GeiL ram
NZXT lexa case

Just wondering what could have caused it.

Will probably replace with a 4850 but dont want it to happen again

Thanks!
 

A:Graphics card broken- what may have caused it?

Could be a number of things. Could be heat, could be lack of power, could be overclocking, could be an internal failure of the card - electronics like everything else will fail at some point.

A:Graphics card broken or is it the slot?

Hey Falconet. I think I would be far more likely that the graphic card is flaky since in your research the beeps point to the graphics card. If the slot were damaged, chances are you wouldn't get it to work at all, and since it worked one day and not the next, and since the slot itself won't break on it's own, I would suspect the card first. It wouldn't hurt to check both connection points of the cable the next time, although the beeps indicate the card's operation itself as not being right.

Last night my monitor suddenly started to make strange images, so i thought the CPU had overheated thus opened it and let it cool down for a few minutes (yes, it was pretty hot when I opened it). After a new run, the problem persisted. So I let it stay for the night, and this morning when I turned the PC on still the same problem. So I take out the graphics card to have a look at it and find this:

My suggestion,
Forget about the dual card option. Your memory should be fine. What operating system is now on the machine? If you have the 400MHz AMD-K6-2 machine, XP will be slow regardless of memory and video card. Installing one video card should be no problem.

Hi,

Has anyone else noticed that since the last upgrades, the graphics have gone haywire:

Firefox does something weird too. The top bar goes all blue, and you can only make out the open tabs by hovering over them (and then they go back to normal). Come off the tab bar, move back over it - and it goes weird again. This has only happened in the last day (since my machine did some automatic updates)

Is anyone else having this issue?

Thanks

Andy

Hi I recently received a ATI Radeon XT Graphics Radeon ATI (and broken HOT! 9800 Graphics fan) Card XT Card from a friend because he no longer needed it I freshly installed it into my computer and installed that software provided with ATI Radeon 9800 XT Graphics Card HOT! (and broken fan) it I notice the fan was making alot of noise although it was still running fine just noisy like the bearing was bad I shut down the computer and unplugged power cords When i go to take the graphics card ATI Radeon 9800 XT Graphics Card HOT! (and broken fan) out it is very hot all over the card and at first it was even hard to touch the card This was after running the card for - hours So once it cools down I disassemble the fan and give the bearing a little grease job and clean the dust and debris off the fan etc I put the back motor piece of the fan back on and then I try to take it off again and the metal peg that is attached to just the fan breaks and detaches from the fan Is there a website or store that sells just the replacement fan for this graphics card or an alternative I also wanted to know why the graphics card is running so hot Thank you nbsp

A:ATI Radeon 9800 XT Graphics Card HOT! (and broken fan)

I would cuss out your friend if he/she didn't tell you it was a defective card
to begin with.
its running hot because the heatsink on the video card has quite working.

about fixing it. look at the back of the card and see if you can see any
heat damage to the circuit board. if so---ITS toast.

if you can find a new heatsink and fan for your video card.
I wouldn't reliy on the card to last a long time.
your friend probably ran it for awhile with it making noises,
so this shortened the life expectancy of the card.

RUNNING 6 HOURS WITH IT SO HOT IT BURN YOUR HAND PROABLY
DIDN'T DO YOUR MOTHERBOARD ANY GOOD EITHER!!!!!!!!!!!

You can try removing the drivers by booting up in safe mode and running Driver Sweeper to remove the AMD graphics drivers.

A:Audio Issues Following Broken Graphics card and PC Crash

What does Device Manager show under Sound, video and game controllers?

In should show your actual sound card. Example: SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio Driver

If it shows the generic Windows compatible device, your correct sound card drivers are NOT installed.

Windows will install generic drivers for cards/chipsets it recognizes, and New Hardware Wizard nor Update drivers work because Windows does not see "new" hardware.

For sound cards, you likely need to run an actual setup from the CD for your PC (for on-board sound card) or the CD that came with your PCI sound card. This will install both drivers and supporting control utilities.

Hi,

Please can someone help me.

A friend of mine has sent me a photo of his laptop (as attached). Does anyone know if this is the screen that is broken or could it be something else maybe, like the Graphics Card.

The only information that he has been able to give me is, that his daughter was using Google and then this happened.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you

A:IE6 broken, Norton broken, other programs broken

Hi again,

I think I may have semi-repaired the problem. I re-installed Norton, and now it is no longer broken I think--the system tray icon is there and auto-protect works. No viruses were detected however. IEXPLORER.exe no longer runs with start-up, and it no longer re-appears as well, BUT internet explorer STILL does not work. Basically, I open it, the browser window opens, it tries to load, but then it just simply stops trying to load and effectively freezes. I have to close it through the task manager. No error message pops up, it's just a blank browser window.

I just tried installing IE7 to perhaps fix the problem, but IE7 would not install all the way so it's still broken. Here's an updated HJT log; thank you!

hello,

my situation:

I have a Compaq V6000 notebook. Several months ago it started to only charge when I placed the power cord in the right position. It keeps getting harder to find the right position. I was told that I might have a broken power socket or broken solder connection from the socket to the mobo. So I opened it up. The power socket looks normal to me, but then again, this is the first one I have ever seen.

My question:

what should I be looking for on the power board? What would I be able to notice if the solder connection was broken? and where should I look?

&

What would indicate that it is a broken power socket?

A:[SOLVED] Cannot boot windows - \windows\system32\config\system missing or broken

Update:

With some help from my brother(who is a lot better at this than me) we tried the copy thing. Moved the old system file away, and brought in the system.bak from the repair folder, renamed it to system and rebooted.

Now it didn't say anything about the system file missing or being broken, but came up with the windows loading screen, then went to black and for a very bried moment came up with a blue screen with some text on it before it restarts.
I can't make out what it says on the blue screen because it is so very brief.

And now it just reboots over and over again. Have we done something completely wrong?

A:Windows June update - broken gadgets, windows help and more

Hello plastisman and welcome to Seven Forums.

With IE9 installed, do you see those June updates listed in the Windows Update History? If yes, you could try to uninstall them and see if your computer works properly. If it does, reinstall the June updates one or two at a time then use your computer for a while. If everything still works correctly install the next couple of updates. If the machine suddenly stops working you've narrowed down which of the updates might be the problem.

You could also try running a System File Checker scan to see if any files were damaged or corrupted by the June updates. If the scan finds any problems, run it 3-4 times as some file may not be fixed on the first or even second go-around due to dependencies (for example, file C may have to wait for file B to be fixed and file G may have to wait for file C to be fixed.)

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Just upgraded to Windows 8 a couple of hours ago. Everything was working fine until I turned on 'High Contrast' in Settings/Ease of Access. The setting refused to revert when turned off (tried restarting, etc). After I finally managed to turn it off (Control Panel/Display and then choosing a new theme), every Windows 8 app has become unusable.

Text is warped, appears in places it shouldn't and buttons can't be clicked. The apps themselves are slow to load and quickly close themselves after starting. This happens in Xbox Music, Xbox Video, People, Weather and every other Windows 8 app I've tried. Meanwhile everything on the desktop is fine.

With one exception. If I right-click on the desktop (or in Windows Explorer) the screen turns black, takes a few seconds to return and then every program on the desktop has been closed. I'm guessing this isn't what right clicking is supposed to do.

My friends Windows 7 professional 64 bit computer has several problems.
When he starts it up he gets the following message:
TP-Link Wireless configuration Utility.
TWCU.exe The application was unable to start correctly
status: (0xc0000005) To close the application click OK, it closes alright.
 
But if he wants to start any other program,  he gets the same message, but with the programs name. Or if he wants to install another program, Google Chrome, for example, he gets the same message
But, Microsoft programs start just fine, Except Internet Explorer 10 which starts up but nothing loads in the frame and after 30 seconds it closes.
 
I suggested reinstalling Windows, but he does not have the Window's CD nor any recovery CDs. Also there are no prior restore points.
 
I downloaded Ms. Windows offline Defender. Burned it on a CD and ran a scan with it. But it came back clean. Is there any hope for this computer? Any ideas?

Backing up your files is the most important thing at this point.
Back up your files

If unable to get into Windows, I'd suggest trying one of these links: https://www.google.com/search?q=back...ient=firefox-a
The most important thing to backup is your Users folder - that'll contain most (if not all) of the data on your system.

somewhere on that computer, I have no idea whether that's a laptop or desktop and your system specs do not say, either on the bottom or the side is a Certificate of Authority (COA) sticker.

That sticker has a number on it.

Do you find the sticker?

Recent problem, at least from two weeks ago (maybe longer). Active windows deactivate themselves. Minimized programs maximize themselves. Watching netflix movie in Full Screen mode and it will revert to small screen by itself. This will happen several times (10+) during a 90 minute movie.

I have run a virus scan and Registry Cleaner.

Any ideas?

hello &welcome to TSF,

now what i need to do is go to your (device manager)

now once there you will want to select from the toolbar of the window(veiw) then a drop down menu / from it you will select (show all hidden devices)

now if you see any (red or yellow) quotation marks , make a note of what they

now go to the (event veiwer) this is thru the (administrator tools) in the control panel
here you will find 3 to 4 subcatagories

you will want to check each of them for this is where windows keeps track of all errors
now you will want to make notes of the errors that have been recorded ( you do not have to make notes of double entries just of the dates of their happenings & how many there is)
you will get more information on the errors if you (right) click them / then select properties

then get back to us

Hi CleetSR338,and Welcome,
 
I am not sure I am reading your problem correctly, but my take on it is as follows.
 
If you could disconnect the drives with OS's on them except the one you want to repair.
 
Now boot with your install disk and click repair your computer, this should rewrite your boot.
 
The problem is I am not sure of you would reconnect your other disks because you should now have two bootable win 7s
 
You might be better off waiting to see if the more knowledgeable have better ideas/methods.
 
Good luck

What you mean is there is no dvd/cd drive, but of course the internal hard drive has to be there.
Before anyone can try to help, you need to be more specific as what is going on with the laptop, to say that is broken is simply not enough.
Also you should consult the Maintenance and Service Guide here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02613455

Hi I have a HP Compaq 6715b laptop, Yesterday I installed windows 8 release preview on it. It was fine, I was customizing it for about an hour. I just got home and turned it on and the after I launched my browser the fan went on full for 10 seconds then off, Then it did it again some time later, And again. I brought core temp up at it seems as soon as my 2 cpu cores hit 80 degrees, then fan kicks in. When they get back to 72 degrees. It stops. Normally It is running at different speeds. But now it is going max off, max off, max off and this has happened since I installed windows 8. It could be a problem with the fan. Any advice?

Is there a way to reset the way browsers display popups so that they appear the way they were intended by the site's creator?

Still broken. FAX send will hang/redial. Didn't work in 8.1PV - may have functioned in 8.

The problem is FXST30.dll. Replacing it with the Windows 7 copy resolves it.
This may require taking ownership.

Someone here with Microsoft's ear might pass that along to the higher echelon.

A:Is windows 7 Broken and how to...Please Help.

It is impossible to understand from the rambling what the problem is, or what you have done.

If you actually created a new Standard account to operate which is causing these problems, then sign into the Admin account and use it to see if they persist. I would operate as Admin since that is the account created when you install the OS and I've seen no reason to think its safer being a Standard user who gets asked to give your own Admin password for everything.


If problems persist, work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 starting with Malwarebytes and SAS scans, SFC to check System files, establishing a Clean Boot, and the rest of the steps.

Same here. I think I read somewhere it's a 8.1 bug. Typical Windows: lots of small graphical glitches everywhere. They don't seem to care enough to fix it, or to make sure these things aren't released to begin with. Good thing they have at least accelerated GUI animations, no?

A:Windows Update broken

- I am not surprised to see that WU doesn't work anymore. Interrupting of such a large installation (we're talking about 4 GB) and trying to revert that installation (??) is very dangerous. Too many things can go wrong.
- Did you upgrade or did you do a fresh clean install of Win 10 ? I would strongly recommend to do a fresh clean install. Saves A LOT OF hassle.

When I have Explorer open and enter "New York City", including the quotes, and tell the Search to search within files, it returns the names of all files containing the word New, OR the word York, OR the word City. What am I doing wrong???

On XP this is SO easy to do!

Alternative would be.... is there a version of grep that runs on Windows 7? If it matters, this computer runs Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.

A:Windows 7 Search... broken?

The way it works in mine is every letter you type (without quotes) narrows down the possibilities. Try typing one letter at a time and see what happens. I always start from the C: drive.

Hi all

My Windows 7 Firewall won't load up, the service is enabled and started. When I open up the Windows Firewall page it has the button saying "Use recommended settings", so I click that and nothing happens, same with all the buttons on that page.

Any ideas?
Cheers.

A:Windows 7 Firewall BROKEN

Hi, most likely refers to "windows firewall authorization".

Go to start search and type:- cmd, right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the prompt type:-


Code:
net stop wecsvc
(press enter) if it returns Not started do not worry.

Now go to start search and type:- devmgmt.msc (press enter)

Device manager will open, click View menu and check "Devices by connection" & "Show hidden devices" scroll towards the bottom look for "Windows Firewall Authorization Driver" right click on this and select Properties select the "Driver" tab then under Startup Type, make sure "Demand" is the setting, OK out.

Do not forget to open cmd (as admin ) and type:- net start wecsvc (press enter) if you have stopped this service.

Now still in cmd prompt (as admin) type :- sfc/scannow (press enter) will take awhile to run.

Let us know how you get on.

Basically, my WIndows Store app somehow managed to break itself. I cannot install/update apps as is just infinitely says "installing". after it gets stuck, the progress bar just plain won't budge. I can't click "pause all". I can't even download apps at this point...

i tried the "wsreset" function, more than once. didn't work.

A:It loaded windows 10 on its own -now broken

huzzah3579 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!You probably have Windows Updates set to automatically download and apply updates, and in that case, since Win10 is now distributed as an Update, it would automatically get loaded. While Microsoft tells you that there is no risk in the Win10 Upgrade, because they let you believe that you can always revert back to your original OS and setup within 30 days, the ugly faction of the matter is that the Win10 GoBack function has proven to be unreliable -- and when it fails, it can leave machines in a corrupted state -- which doesn't always happen, but it does happen often enough to be a problem and you won't get any warning in advance that it is going to trash your PC!The Win10 Upgrade is know, in some cases, to corrupt the Recovery partition stored there by the OEM that built the original machine.  This pretty much guarantees that no HP Recovery is going to work. You can try using the Win10 GoBack function to see if you can return to Win8x:  How to: Rollback to a previous version of Windows from Windows 10 | Teching It Easy: with Windows But, if that doesn't work, then you would need to try this:  Performing an HP system recovery (Windows 8) | HP Customer Support And, if that doesn't work, your only recourse then is to order HP Recovery Media. This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks.  You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update".  If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entty and click on Order Media for details.Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.htmlNOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!If HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you can check are: http://www.computersurgeons.com/  and http://www.restoredisks.com/Be sure to read through the material in the linked thread BEFORE you attempt the recovery:  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00707939Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on my post to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

My AVG Internet Security system says

I tried to Update the driver but got the reply that it is up to date.
Microsoft Help and Support would not help.

I can't find the W7 drivers anywhere.

I think the problem arose due to viral infections.
I used AVG to clean the system and it seems to have cleared things up, but there may still be a malware around?

Typically you should not have to worry about that network interface.

If your system is infected with malware, I suggest reading the following.

You should still be able to do a system restore to before you installed the software.

Personally I only back up files, not whole disk images. If problems arise I always like to start from fresh with only my files being the thing the same as before.

Hei guys, I have no idea how this happened but my Windows 7 pro (32 bits) update is so broken!
I tried "sfc /scannow" and nothing, I tried tweaking Windows Repais and still nothing.
I did the System Update Readiness and got many error which I don't know how to fix them. I'm attaching the CheckSUR.log file.
 
May some expert in this issue give me a hand?
 
Thanks a lot!

A:Windows Update awfully broken.

Hi Khelle,
 
Your machine seems to have lot of corrupted windows file. You might want to give 'chkdsk /r' a try. For doing that, boot on safe mode and then launch a command prompt, then type 'chkdsk /r'. Please take in note that this operation could take several hours.

Hey guys,
My laptop is absolutely brain dead. I don't know what is wrong with it. It was running slow for a couple of weeks, and today I deleted the temp files, and it ran perfectly, but after restarting it went completely haywire, it got hung up on running start up scripts for about twenty minutes, I then tried rebooting into last working settings. That did boot in, so I ran msconfig to disable startup programs. But that went wrong, even though I was logged in as admin, it didn't let me. I then started navigating on chrome and it suddenly froze up again, but the mouse pointer was still moving.What the hell is going on??
When I boot in safe mode it is slow at the login screen...

We might need more "symptoms" for diagnosis. For now, please explain how it didn't let you run msconfig.

Try creating a new user with admin status - see if that new user can add/remove/install applications.

I've had this problem for about 2 days now.. whenever I press Ctrl+Alt+Del to open my task bar, it shows up, but it's weird. The tabs are not visible and all i can see is the part where it lists the tasks and their status.. I can also see the bottoms on the bottom: End task, switch to, and new task. I can't minimize it and I'm unable to close it. Right clicking it on the Start Toolbar (is that the correct name..?) and the options doesn't appear... Oh, by the way, the name doesn't appear either.. it's just blank. I have to press CTRL+ALT+DEL 4 more times, so that windows turns it into group (five Windows Taskbars). Afterwards, the name appears ( 5 Windows Taskbar) and I am able to right click it and then click "Close Group". Is there a way to fix this problem?

A:Broken Windows TaskManager

Your task manager is running in 'Kiosk' mode. Bring it up (either by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del or Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and double click on the grey border. This should restore it to normal mode.

Somehow I corrupted the Windows Store.  The Start Tile itself is working. It updates regularly showing new content.  When I click the tile the screen morphs to the green full screen Windows Store.  But it has the "merry-go-round" dots endlessly.  Without the Store I can't download any apps.  I can live without that ability but it would be nice to have.
 
I tried SFC but the huge report made no mention of Windows Store details.  I tried a PowerShell script that was to refresh the cache.  It didn't.  I tried a regedit fix by tricking WS into recreating its cache.  Didn't work.  I didn't even find the cache where it was supposed to be.  Didn' find it at all.
 
New sets of eyes and minds would be greatly appreciated!  
As always TIA

 Have you tried System Restore to a date prior to the beginning of the problem?  Do you have all the Windows 8.1 updates installed?

Hi needaremedy

It sounds like your computer is major brand name model? If so, even though you have misplaced your Windows XP CD, for many vendors it is still possible to order a "Recovery/Restore CD set" for your make and model - and for as little as $20 (USD).

Using the "Full Recovery" option for many of these sorts of CD-sets often will completely erase any data you've added since the computer came home from the store. So it would be a good idea to save what files you want to keep beforehand.

You can save your data by removing the hard drive from your current system, and either "slaving" it in another computer (using the appropriate hard drive cable), or putting it in a USB 2.0 external hard drive enclosure. You then copy the files you wish to save onto the host computer's drive.

Good idea to scan for pests first, too.

Best of luck

How do I fix it?

I can't install anything, and the installer is stuck in a loop when I start ANY software. This renders my new computer unusable.

I try to uninstall the Office XP suite that partially installed and failed, and it tells my I don't have permission.

It's beginning to look like the only way out is to re-install Windows, and I don't want to go that drastic.
