Good Evening everyone
I have a recently re formatted laptop. I can listen to downloaded music ( from backed up files ) BUT I cannot hear anything when on You Tube or when atteptmting to play a DVD, yet I am 100% sure it all worked the night we re formatted this beast. I really need sound, can anyone point me in the right direction. Thanks in anticipation.

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.)

Here again since I have the most weird problem ever which I have never seen nor heard of before. I recently upgraded the OS on a friends computer, from Vista to 7. However now I can't seem to get the onboard ethernet adapter to work, it can't be seen in device manager nor anywhere else. I have tried to reset the bios (by removing the cmos battery) and I have also checked that the network adapter is set to 'Enabled'. Also, when I connect the cable to the ethernet port no lights go on, it doesn't give any sort of hope what so ever. The cable is ok, the "modem" is ok, and everything else seems to be in order and yet it doesn't work.

Computer in question:
HP Pavilion 6530sc
Non-default GPU and added 1Gb RAM
 

A:Solved: Computer doesn't recognize the network adapter

Whenever you install a new OS, always take note of the model of core system hardware like GPU, chipset, and ethernet/wifi (there are a few others that aren't as important, but nice to have updated) since those are critical to your computers core functionality.

However, a quick google search of your model yielded me with your PC's system specs. Your PC contains a Realtek RTL8201N ethernet adapter. So far I am unable to find a driver from Realtek itself and the HP driver is not Realtek, but instead nVidia nForce.

So after a bit of searching, I came across this: it seems to me that you have an old chipset from nVidia. I am not completely sure, but I think you have an ION chipset. Try installing this ION chipset driver (64 bit) ==OR== this ION chipset driver (32 bit) and tell me if it works. It should include the necessary component drivers and if it works, it means you have an ION chipset like I suspected.

Here are the specifications for your PC BTW.

Hey guys, I am going on holiday in early June and am looking for a way to listen to music while I'm in the pool as I plan to spend a lot of time doing so.
The way I can see it is that I have two options:

Buy a waterproof case and waterproof headphones
buy a waterproof MP3 player all-in-one.
Obviously each option has it's flaws - otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Even if I buy a waterproof case how can I be sure that even though there is a waterproof case, where it contacts with waterproof earphones will be waterproof as 'waterproof' to some sellers just means rain-proof.
The problem with the all in ones like the Sony Waterproof Walkman is that they are very expensive for very little space, the 4GB alone being 50 and 8GB is 80.

Does anyone have experience in the matter, anything they can recommend, preferably I'd like to use my phone in a case for my 32GB MicroSD card, but whatever works I guess.

Cheers guys.

Hey guys, I've recently ordered a new PC and it should be here in a week. I'm a gamer and I like to write music and will finally be able to record with my new system. I'm just lacking a sound card. So basically I'm looking for a card that will be awesome for gaming and music. Any suggestions out there? I know I will need a PCI-E card. I'm looking to spend $150-200. Any help would be much appreciated

This is probably the best one out there: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829132010

Not sure what they are called but those lights in computers in some kind of tubing, are they called tube lights or cathode lights and can I do that with my computer or do I need a special setup?
 

A:Tube/cathode lights

I'd go for these BitFenix Alchemy LED strips, they are very bright, flexible, stick anywhere in your PC and consume hardly any power. All you need is a spare molex connector from your power supply.

Having dredged the internet, I came across this forum amongst the many with questions relating to cd drives working but dvd not etc, but my issue is slightly different, i think.

CDs seem to play ok, and so do DVDs, but I seem to have a problem with my laptop reading a disc with DS games on it that it used to read no problem. The discs can be used in my other half's laptop, so it is clearly a problem with my laptop.

I'd appreciate if anyone could advise where I can start to solve this problem

As a part time DJ i spend a lot of time playing the same laptop a Recording music from music in the same order so i was thinking what if i Recording music from a laptop could just sit down and record the tracks that i play Recording music from a laptop directly into one Recording music from a laptop big MP and then it would save me having to load and cue each track I use a program called ClubDJ Pro its a twin deck system with a predefined playlist i can usually just load a playlist and tell it to cross fade during the last quot X quot seconds of the song X being a set time between and seconds However i find some songs have an extended silence at the end that can when i first played them mess up the auto cross fade facility and as anyone will tell you silence is deadly when your doing DJ ing So is there a program i can use to either record directly from my program or use another PC or laptop to record onto i assume i would use the earphone out on one to the Line In socket on the other PC Laptop and then record onto that It would be good as it then means i can use different mixes of my own nbsp

I wasn't able to connect through my wireless router to the internet on any of my wireless devices until I plugged in my wireless usb stick. I plugged it into one laptop, and now I can use both. Why would this happen? My mother has the same connectivity issue, and do you think I should try the same thing? It seems as though that every wireless connection that I come across has this problem lately. Every single one. I am confused, is it just me?

A:Graphics card issue (not solved by any other threads)

I suggest a clean reinstall of the OS and drivers from scratch. Clean out your PC, re-seat all the components and continue with a fresh install of OS, drivers, etc.

If that doesn't work, then it's an issue with your card or the PCI-E slot on the motherboard.

I'm thinking that without gaming ambitions, the new Intel core i3 CPUs might meet your needs with their integrated graphics. These give pretty decent scores in
the Windows Experience Index, something like 4.9 for Areo, and 5.3 for business and gaming graphics. To the best of my knowledge, the matching H55/ H57 Intel chipset motherboards provide Fire Wire input.

You should first subscribe to Newegg's Email list, so you can grab your parts as they become available on sale.

Here is Intel's list of socket LGA1156 CPUs available at Newegg; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...=2010340343 50001157 1051749233&name=LGA 1156


And the matching integrated graphics H55/ H57 boards in the Gigabyte brand; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...01314 1070549182 107173338&name=Intel H55/H57 Be sure to pick one with 4 memory sockets. (4 out or 5 do). I have this one; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128421

Please pay no attention to the bad reviews for this product, they were all written by imbeciles claiming, "high technical ability". I don't know squat about computers, and I had one of these systems up and running perfectly, with Windows 7 installed, in about 3 hours.

In fact, I'm hoping Newegg will offer "don't know squat" as a technical ability claim option. That way, I'll be able to check, "don't know squat", and report, "it works perfectly for me, 5 stars"!

Here is a test report done on a few of these boards at Techspot; http://www.techspot.com/review/259-intel-h55-motherboard-shootout/

I have a strange experience with sounds lately I have no come background games of music sound How some different? idea why this happening or what is causing it but here it is How come some background music of games sound different? One day I was doing some light gaming on both my tower and laptop since both my computers meets the minimum requirements and while playing this game I heard some unusual sounds on both How come some background music of games sound different? my laptop and tower my laptop while playing the background music of the game seemed to be missing a couple or not few sound types in the game On my tower it sounded like it had an extra beat as if I could here that extra sound s with the background music playing I can t explain real good but to simplify this my laptop seemed to be lacking of some melody beats while my tower has it all and slightly deeper bass I turned my laptop speakers high yet no extra melody beat appeared I How come some background music of games sound different? did the same with the tower sounded the same as before but just louder I am sure I installed this game on both my computer successfully with no errors I reinstalled it again and same problem occurred I don t understand is the speakers more sensitive on the tower and giving it more variety of sounds or is the laptop speakers not so sensitive in outputting more variety of sounds Or both are wrong and it is just the matter of XP and VISTA or is it the software or drivers installed for the sounds Is something wrong with the speakers Do I need buy better ones Ones that s suppose to act normal nbsp

A:How come some background music of games sound different?

try updating your sound drivers first, then you might want to look into past problems others might have had with this games sound. Since this happened to both your computers at the same time it sounds like the problem is the game.

A simple test to see if your speakers are broke is just...play music on them. Does it sound fine? yes? then it's not your speakers

unfortunatly without knowing what game it is that you are talking about I can't really look into any problems others have had with it.

I am running XP/Win7 on my AMD 64 Athlon 3400+ powered Pavillion. I have an integrated Realtek AC'97 audio card and lately I've noticed that all music playback is choppy - whether it's iTunes, Windows Media Player, or Youtube. I've tried different speakers, headphones, etc., but reagrdless of the hardware I use, I still get the same problem. It sounds as if the music is being paused and then played very quickly throughout the song. I don't really notice it in Windows sound effects, but that may be because they are short in length. I notice this happening on both XP and Windows 7 and don't know why.

Please help!!!
 

A:Music Playback is Choppy

Try updating your audio and chipset driver. There could also be a program running in the background taking up to much memory or CPU cycles. If you listen to music alot you should get a dedicated sound card. You can get a really good Audigy on Ebay for under $15. Onboard audio is notoriously troublesome. Too many other things in the system can interfere with it.

I want to put this up just encase anyone had the same problem I did and if I remember correctly there were a few people that posted the same problem on other forums The problem When I ran anything very graphically intensive like crysis furmark or when I ran a game without vsync on my PC would crash and I would just see lines on the screen or just see blackness 4850 Crashing problem solved I even got a replacement for my card and they said it was faulty and sent me a new one but it still happened just less often Solution In your bios set the pcie frequency to not auto How came to this conclusion I had just helped my friend build a PC for the first time and he had done a lot of research and as we were overclocking his CPU he mentioned that he heard you should set the pcie frequency on your motherboard to not auto or it will overclock itself during intense graphics After I had a few more crashes I remembered him mentioning this 4850 Crashing problem solved so I tried it and no more crashing not even in furmark So thanks to him I don t have to worry about crysis cashing anymore and I can finally overclock nbsp

Hey! My comp can play music but when I play DVDs or run .avis I only get background music and the vocal audio is so low it's almost muted. I can't figure it out. I have DivX installed and AC3Filter as well but I use WMP and Cyberlink PowerDVD, no vocals from either. Do I need codecs? How do I find out which I need?

A:Name brand PC Recovery problems solved

I take it that the extra 256Meg of Ram did not originally come from HP
I'm not sure if that's relevant or not, but even same rating Ram (but different manufacture) has been known to cause issues (ie best to use exactly the same Ram cards always)

I was discussing a similar matter earlier on here: Windows will not boot with more than 2gb of ram (although the emphasis in that thread was the 2Gig max, before installing Windows, and strangeness of having increased ram in a system)

Either way, thanks for your post, it was interesting to note this issue (and likely cause)
Many times during a Setup fault, I have advised members to remove extra Ram cards and try again. It may be that the originally recorded Ram (under re-imaging) may be the answer (on some computers that may have Setup problems) Sadly you would need to test this issue on 10 similar, same spec, computers to really confirm. Or contact HP technical support, or possibly their tech forum, to ask of others experiences.

Of late I found my desktop PC crashing now and then. The situation was getting worse by the day and it was becoming frustrating to use the PC.

I opened the box and got my fingers dirty, so before I looked further I decided to blow out all the dust with a vacuum cleaner. Loads of dust billowed out. I would recommend holding the CPU fan blades so that it does not spin uncontrollably.

After the dust clean up, the PC is working great and no unwanted crashes. I guess the dust was preventing the cooling of the CPU.

Whenever I have inserted a cd in a drive and selected explore, I have been able to see the file type. I bought a cd, karaoke style -- for all practical purposes here -- and when I inserted the CD I only found pdf files which hold the sheet music. I always make a copy of these cds in case one becomes damaged. On two computers I was completely surprised that I could see nothing except the PDF files. Is there a way to see the music files?
 

A:Music files

Purhaps you did not buy a CD with music on it. It may be a karaoke cd that gives you sheet music to some popular songs to let them play and sing it yourself (thus the karaoke).

I cant think of anything else because if thats ALL thats on the disk then the obove situation is accurate in my opinion

I have encountered a problem when I have tried to burn music to cd r. The drive will play music ok- so no problem there. However when I try to burn some tracks it will only record about 10 seconds. I will then get an error message saying that my cd is dirty or may be recording at wrong speed. Have tried other speeds without any success also tried downloading latest version of window media and closed all other applications that may have caused even a remote problem. Can anyone help or have any suggestions how to fix this problem?
 

A:Can't Burn music to cd

Is this a laptop or a desktop computer.
It seems as if your CD drive is worn out of alignment. Either the read laser or the write laser is out of whack or it is just worn out. How old is the drive?
Burners last about a year, on average... less, if used a lot. It is easier and cheaper to replace them, than to fix them.
If you are in a dusty climate, you can remove the bottom from the burner, and use Dust Off or other canned air with difluoroethane gas to clean the unit. Do not touch the laser... just blow dust out of the drive.
There are some utilities that will reset the burner on some models. Do a Gurgle search for your brand and model.

So i bought my new 2 sea gate drives,and as before like i said the previous hds was randomly getting dced etc,now when i bought the new drives worked great then started to do the same thing as the previous drives,not being picked up in bios etc,then i decided to change the plug in my ultra x3 800 watt psu to a molex to sata connection,that worked picking up the hds no problem,

so does it sound like a wire issue or the psu giving the issue?cause as soon as i switched it to the molex to sata instead of the other sata connect in the utra x3 which uses different wires and different ports it worked.

a waste of 184 but i got better hds and i can just sell the 2 500 gig wd drives i got
 

A:SATA problem solved but a bit concerned

Ok yes it does seem like a faulty Power Supply

Also you should have just replied to your original thread: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic107883.html
Instead of making this new one.

But oh well !

Anyway, if the molex do not cause any issue, then you could continue with them
I wish you had tried that before. I didn't suggest it, because it is uncommon (very uncommon), especially with two !

Hi Guys, i build an 5 channels amp and i have 5 speakers, i have an SoundCard with 5 channels Output, i found that if the song is just 2 channels the output will be to the Front Speakers, is possible to send the output to the Front and Rear Speakers?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Is possible to Listen Stereo from 4 Speakers?

as long as you have front,rear inputs for your
amp that you built & front,rear ouputs,then yes
you can.

plug another jack (3.5 mm mini jack/RCA) from your sound card's
rear output to the rear input of the amp then you're ready to go.

& dont forget,the rear speakers connected to the rear output
channel of your amp.

A:Can't burn music to cds

You might have Temporary "files waiting to be written to the disk" in explorer.

put an empty disk in the drive open my computer and double click on the CD/DVD-RW drive, if any files appear in explorer greyed out then delete them by clicking "Delete these temporary files".

if you have any open windows that are showing the contents of the drive then you should close them too. other than that then there's probably another program monitoring the drive, could be a media player that you set to monitor your Drive for playable media.

hi.. i'm a music producer... and my main tool is Reason 4 software from PropellerHeads... and i want to buy a new PC... and my dilema is the CPU..
which one do you think i should buy.. the new 45nm E8400 or the old Q6600??
the problem with Reason is that it's not biult for multi core CPUs so i guess the E8400 should do the job better... but recently i saw some tests with Reason running on a Q6600 and i was amazed...
really dunno what to do here. and my mainboard of choice is the Gigabyte G33-DS3R... hope someone could help me on this one!

thanks in advanced!!
 

A:Intel E8400 or Q6600 for music production?

To Err Is Human....To Forgive Is Not in the Nature of Computers...

Either the 8400 or the 6600 should give more than adequate performance with music files. (By "more than adequate", I mean spectacular). I don't want to overstep my knowledge here, but I'm guessing that music files don't present the same degree of difficulty as 1920 X 1200 High Def Video encoding. Which I'm sure software engineers are currently rushing to adapt applications for quad (or more), core use. Point being you couldn't go wrong with either CPU.
BIOS updating can be a tricky and risky affair. That being said, I would check which BIOS version is present in the Motherboard before making a decision on which CPU to buy. The E8400 would absolutely require a BIOS update, whereas the Q6600 might not. IMHO, the plug and play part always wins.
Then there's always plan "C": wait for a 45nm quad CPU.

I found this to be quite interesting, I have Nero 6 which is not at least 3 years old. When I use the"advanced analysis" function in "Recode" (essentially "DVDshrink") on my machine with a Pentium Dual Core E2200, task manager is telling me that BOTH cores are operating at 100%. I didn't think that this version of Nero was even written for dual core CPUs, but there you have it, clipping along at up to 1000 FPS, firing on both barrels!

Mistakenly posted this in new members bit. Was having major problems with pop ups (CID) and freezes. Checked my broadband connection with Virgin and they said it was fine. After several weeks of tinkering my son has cleared up the pop ups and the freezes however we now cannot upload videos on to You Tube, which was never a problem before. Has he disabled something? Any suggestions are greatly welcomed. My son is reasonably proficient re computer stuff but I am a total amateur
 

A:You Tube

We meet again !

When you try to upload the video here: http://www.youtube.com/my_videos_upload
What actually happens?

To allow you to answer the question and also gain some support:

Can you confirm your Java is up to date, here: http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre&try=1

And also, your Firewall is not interfering with going to the upload site, by temporarily disabling it, and trying again.

Also can you add http://www.youtube.com to your Trusted zone
Tools --> Internet Options--> Security --> Trusted Sites --> Sites
Remove the tick, and then "Add" the site http://www.youtube.com

Also, I have had this work as well in some situations:
Tools --> Internet Options--> Privacy --> Advanced --> Tick (Accept all for both)

Apply-->OK--> Restart Internet Explorer

If none of these options still help. You may want to try Downloading and re-installing Internet Explorer

There are 6 things for you to do. (I am hopeing that one will work for you)

I am having trouble with the audio part of You Tube and CNN. As soon as the video starts the sound stops. I click play and the sound starts then it stops again, Then, the video freezes. What is going on? It is so frustrating when I can't hear the audio because it keeps stopping and starting, starting, stopping. Help !
 

A:Trouble with audio when viewing videos on you tube or cnn

Find out what audio program gives you the sound for whatever is not working. It's going to be a plug-in of some kind. Go to 'control panel' and 'uninstall' the current plug-in. Then reinstall it from a good source. Many times these applications can become corrupt and stop all together or off and on. I think with a fresh install of all of your audio plug-ins will bring them around. Give it a try! Good Luck.

Hi all,

Winamp's being... temperamental, to say the least.
I have a music library of ~2000 songs which I want to get it to sync to my MP3 player. It recognizes that my player is connected to my PC just fine, but when I tell it to sync all 2000 songs in one shot the program freezes and crashes.
I really do NOT want to have to sit at my PC for hours and sync my music library 50 songs at a time. Is there a workaround for this problem or am I just going to have to bite the bullet?

Thanks,

-'Mage

Currently I have 3 Temp monitor (BIOS included). Currently I have a E6550 processor, stock everything. When I play games it goes up to 70c (Core temp wise) and Im idling at 42-43(core temp). but on CPU cool 8.0.4 and BIO's im idling on 35+'s and full load at 50+'s. Subject is, which monitor is giving out the right temp?
 

A:Who should I listen to CPU cool? BIOS? Coretemp?

Well, if you have 3 programs, find a situation where 2 of the programs produce the same values, and then I'd go with them. This is because all the programs read from the same temp probe, but some could stuff it up. BIOS is normally correct, but there could be a malfunction of some sort.

Hello all,

I have had my normal Audigy2 card for years now, and it is starting to play up, like cutting out in games, and often when i'm facing someone who is talking to me I can't hear them and will have to turn to the side to hear them, things like that lol.
I was planning to upgrade the card anyway, but i'm not sure whether I should get the X-Fi Gamer or Music. I hear they are essentially the same thing, although the Gamer is the newer edition. More people swear by the Music though.

I would love some advice, as they are both available, and both basically the same price.

OK, thanks. I can't imagine using Vista anytime soon, and even if I did, a patch would probably be out by then to add support do you think? I am using XP Home at the moment.

I've found this tool very helpful at identifying bad memory. It's positively identified bad ram 100% of the time for me. Download this and follow the instructions to burn it to a blank CD-R. Then boot from the CD-R on your suspect computer. Run the Extended Diagnostics for at least one complete cycle. (Usually if it doesn't detect RAM pattern errors on the first cycle then the RAM is good and there isn't much need to run additional cycles.)

Update:

I have tested old speakers with the OLD audio card, which is still installed above my new Audiphile one. Old speakers work PERFECTLY, so it is NOT the CPU or PC. It is either the SPEAKERS or the AUDIOPHILE sound card. How do I find out? I have no other speakers that connect to the Audiophile card, and I have no other PC with a card that can test the speakers.

Anyone have an educated decision? A popping noise every 10 seconds or so, on and off, sometimes never happens...audiocard most likely, right? The speakers were bought brand new, M-Audio Studio Pro 3's. They seem just fine.

Hey, guys! Does anyone know of the game Croc 2 for the PC? It has really good music. The problem is, the music is unplayable in its current state. Is there a converter that can convert this music file? I went into another forum, and it says that the files are "headerless mono ADPCM packaged into an ASF file". ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED!!!
 

A:Croc 2 PC Music question

Do this...

Look for an ASF extracting program, if there is one. Then you can open the PCM files with Wavelab or some program that can open those files. Just do a google of "ASF extract" and "audio converter"

What you could do very easily is get Goldwave and do the following steps:


Create an hour-long document in Goldwave
Set Recording properties to "Stereo Mix"
Hit record on Goldwave
Launch game
NOTE: ANY sound will be recorded! Get to the part ingame where you have the music you want and just sit there until the track is done playing
Exit game
Press stop in Goldwave and edit to your liking (remove unwanted header/trailer)

If you have any questions feel free to message me.

Or like you want to access the just audio over the network to other PCs can be done also.

Using T-Player http://pages.infinit.net/tplayer/download.htm it's free and works on the local and network drives to pull in all the songs. You can create Playlist to control your massive songs.

Media Monkey is another way too also free..

If you want a good GUI that you can run all on the PCs and pick and choose what you want to watch it also does video and if you have a S-Video you can connect it to your TV and use a wireless keyboard and mouse to do the same.

A:Stuttering video and sound during gameplay / music HELP!

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

Judging by the specs:
Compaq Persario 5320 US
Intel Pentium 4 1.5GHz
512RAM
nVIDIA Vanta 16MB video card
Sound max on board sound
40GB HD
It appears to me that your comp is getting aged
for some of the games you like and the video 16mb
seems to be your bottle neck.
I'm certain it's been good to you just alittle outdated.
2 possible solution would be to upgrade the video card
to at least a 64mb or even better a 128mb.
The other is to consider a fresh machine (non-proprietary)
though I would try the video card Ugrade 1st.
G'Luck

Some how today, I was listening to some music and all of the sudden the song got very distorted for some reason. I thought it was weird and just changed the song. Same problem. Now every thing I listen to has lots of distortion in it. I am using Winamp. I tried using other media programs like ITunes to see if it was just Winamp and it wasn't. I also tried plugging in headphones to see if it was just my speakers but it did it on the headphones as well. Anyone please suggest on how to fix my problem?
 

A:Audio problems when listening to music.

well first thing try uninstall /reinstall your audio card.

remove audio card and reset it as well.

Did your computer come with a disk from the motherboard manufacturer?? After you reformatted your hard drive, did you install the drivers for the board from that disk??

Sound from the on board ac97 on a Gigabyte motherboard running windows XP was alright until I was using Winamp to convert CD's to MP3's. Then the Chipmunks took over. The Winamp was delated and reinstalled with no change to the sound. It sounds the same whether using a CD in the CD player or running a file off the hard drive. It sounds like this whether I am using Winamp, Media Player or Real Player. There must be a setting somewhere that needs to be reset to the default. Any help would be appriciated.
 

A:ac97 playing music so it sounds like the "Chipmunks"

My AC97 on gigabyte motherboard sometimes don have sound until i have to resense the jack the only the sound comes back.

hi, being a beginner to computers i think i have made a mistake.

i have just bought a new laptop which came with a sp2 recovery disk.
i used this disk to reformat my old hp pavillion computer instead of using its disk and now im having problems booting.

when first installed the computer was running great untill i rebooted.
all i get now is the blue hp screen for a second and then the screen goes blank. no error messages or anything.
i have tried to reboot using the original xp disk(sp1). it tells me its checking disk and then itall goes blank again. i have also tried to boot from fdisk but it tells me to replace disk and try again. (made disk off another comp running xp sp1.

can anyone please help me.
 

A:xp booting problem not solved

The system disk is made for the system it came with. Recovery disks work mainly on the computers that they're designed for. For instance, my parents' Sony has a system recovery tool that reinstalls Windows and installs all of the systems programs in a specific way that would not work in any other machine.
