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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, I had a failing hard drive that was replaced in warranty just a couple of days ago. However the hard drive that was installed on my computer is not a new one - CrystalDiskInfo reports it has been turned on 450 times. Is that a normal policy to send refurbished hardware as replacements?  Also, I've noticed the hard drive does an unfamiliar clicking sound when beign used. (and since it's the same hard drive as I've had before, I assume the usual working sound should be the time, which it isn't)Check disk and CrystalDiskInfo don't show any errors though, so I'm not sure if it's a bad sign or not? I will definitely take it to the authorized repair shop that did the HDD replacement but I still thought I'd ask here. Thanks in advance.

my battery recently reported permanent failure, it was under warranty so I contacted Dell support to request a replacement. I've provided all the necessary information and had also ran some diagnostics, the person I was in contact with was happy with all the information provided and informed me that they'll send me a replacement.
Few days later he messaged me the below. I'm not quite sure why they need my whole laptop for this, I'm not really happy to have it collected and kept by them for what I can imagine will be several days if not  weeks. Is this a normal course of action for faulty battery?
"I forgot to tell you that the warranty on the system is Collect and Return, which means we have to collect that system and have that fully diagnosed and checked through our repair team. "

A:Replacement of battery under warranty

It depends on the system you have.  If the battery isn't user-removeable (i.e., it's inside the system rather than easily removed by sliding a latch externally),it's not a user repair and you will need to return the system to the depot for service.

But 15 days gone still no Contact from their side. I'm worried whether they r just fooling me round and round or Do Hp take This long time for The replacement.

I receive a Smart Drive error of "Immanent Failure, back-up immediately"... and of course its been telling me this for close to 2yrs now. my Question is this, "Is my Hard Drive covered under its manufacturers warranty or HP's warranty?". My Laptop is no longer warranted by HP but the manufacturer has a 5yr. warranty on its internal hard drives and my hard drive isn't 5yrs old yet. The HHD I'm referring to came installed within my laptop at the time I purchased it. Anything else you need to know? Thank you.

I guess this isn't a Yoga-specific question but wasn't sure where to put it. I'm ordering a replacement AC adapter for my Yoga 3 Pro on the site. But there's nowhere to enter the serial number so I can order it under warranty. I get to the purchase screen and it's going to charge me full price. I've entered my warranty info on the main support site, but when I get to the parts site it doesn't recognize that. Basically, how do I order the part under warranty without having to pay for it?

Hi wavare_ajinkya ,
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
As a general rule, CRU (customer replaceable parts ) will not void the warranty as listed from the hardware manual . However most upgrades on this model shows that such are considered FRU (field replaceable unit) , meaning you would have to open up additional parts and might require skill and specific tools thus CRU ID is N. (item6 page 72 ).
1. Upgrading your RAM however would not void any warranty.
We had same issue discussed on this thread . 
On quotes: " Similar to this query is this case  for the Z500 replacement of optical drive which is also a CRU Id - N and this thread. 
Warranty agreement :
What this Warranty Does not Cover 
- failure or damage resulting from misuse, abuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, natural disasters, power surges, improper maintenance, or use not in accordance with product information materials 
-damage caused by a non-authorized service provider
-failure of, or damage caused by, any third party products, including those that Lenovo may provide or integrate into the Lenovo product at your request
Warranty is not covered if during the process of modification , damage or accidents may incur both on the replaced parts and the original devices ." 
The answer would be no , upgrading  the harddrive ,RAM will not void your warranty not unless that original parts gets damage because of or during the process of upgrade. 
For best measure , you may give Lenovo Tech a call so that they would be able to note it on your account for the pc that you have plan for upgrades .
2. Changing the original operating system would not void the hardware warranty , but support for the software such as the new or original Operating System (example to restore it back/ drivers issue etc.) would be users responsibility and functionality thereof. 
Hope this answered your query .

Hello everyone, hope we're all well! I'm hoping someone can help me! I recently got a HP Pavilion 15-aw065sa and I love it. I decided to upgrade the SSD, and sadly in doing so, have slightly cracked the underside plastic (about an inch along from the middle of the rear towards the centre of the case). It's not a biggie, but I'd really know if there is anywhere (be it HP or someone else) where I can PAY MONEY (to a limit, lets not go silly, it's just a piece of plastic) to get a replacement. I'm also looking at getting an optical HDD caddy, so a DVD drive front replacement would be useful too! If anyone can help please let me know, it's a great laptop! EDIT: Should mention I checked the part surfer, as well as ebay, and sadly can't find anything

As is common on hybrid systems, the entire top assembly is fused together with adhesive.  It's all but impossible to disassemble the upper assembly without destroying the glass, LCD and/or defacing the back plastic - as Dell informed you, the entire upper half of the system must be replaced as a single unit.
You'll find this design very common these days on all systems of this type.

A:New week old Inspiron 11 3000 3558 (touch) stuck or broken button on touch pad--warranty parts replacement?

This is an fyi about the final resolution of this issue.  After a lot of arguing dell sent me what was supposed to be the touchpad but what I got was only the plastic palmrest no touchpad. Then because it's a "daughter card" I got more argument about the touchpad.  I got hot enough that I opened up the back, lifted out the battery, took out the two funky looking screws and the whole pad just fell right out of the machine.  The buttons seemed fine so I screwed it back down, put the battery back in and closed it up.  It's now great, the button was indeed hung up on the edge of the plastic palmrest.  This is a very well designed inside machine, it all screws down and all connections are with plugs or ribbon cables.  I wrote back to dell and told them they need to fire their tech manual writers because they're idiots, a monkey could have done this.  Apparently it is not easy to find only the mouse pad it's generally sold with the palmrest from what I can tell.  This whole machine is so well designed I scratch my head why the cpu isn't socketed unless they decided there was no room for a socket etc, which I can see that argument.  So if your mouse pad quits try popping it out first it may just be hung up.

A:Is Combofix running under the covers?

As a general policy, Bleeping Computer does not offer advice on how to run ComboFix unless we asked someone to run it or if there is a problem with the computer caused by running the tool. This is because people should not be using ComboFix without being advised to do so by a trained expert (see here) who is assisting them deal with a malware problem. When issues arise due to complex malware infections, possible false detections, problems running ComboFix (i.e. stalling, hanging, crashing) or with other security tools causing conflicts, experts are usually aware of them and can advise what should or should not be done while providing individual assistance. When false detections are identified, experts have access to the developer and can report them so he can investigate, confirm and make corrections. Those attempting to use ComboFix on their own do not have such information and are at risk when running the tool in an unsupervised environment. Also be aware that using ComboFix is only one part of the disinfection process. Preliminary scans from other tools like DDS, RSIT and GMER should be used first because they provide comprehensive logs with specific details about files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection. Analysis of those logs allows planning an strategy for effective disinfection and a determination if using ComboFix is necessary. While our policy is not to offer advice on running ComboFix unless we asked someone to run it, we are certainly willing to help with malware disinfection. If that assistance requires running ComboFix, you will be advised what to do in order to get the tool to run properly or investigate any error messages. If you need such assistance, please read the "Preparation Guide For Requesting Help" starting at Step 6. When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts.

I have never needed to do this until recently, but would like to design and print my own CD labels and the covers that go into the plastic boxes. I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my PC, but am concerned that there seem to be loads of free software, but have no idea what is good or bad.

I want to produce good quality with my own logo and possibly photo on the cover and don't mind if I have to pay for software. What do you guys suggest please

When ripping mp3 or wma files from a CD, Windows Media Player automatically searches online for the album cover art and creates a folder for your music files with the album cover art on it. But what I cant figure out is where does this image file go? I ask because sometimes WMP can't find the album cover. In such case, I can usually find it somewhere else (such as an online cd store), but I don't know where to copy it to so that it shows up like in the rest of my folders. I thought it might be a hidden file within the folder, but that doesn't appear to be the case. Can anyone help?

Recently, when I use click the "Search" button, the search pane extends over the whole screen and no longer displays the width bar or close button. If I search and click a link, the pane remains and covers the page. If I click the Favorites button while the Search pane is open, IE hangs. I have to click it open and closed or right click it and select "Close Toolbar". I can no longer toggle between search and favorites using the IE buttons. This happened recently and I have not added anything to IE except the Yahoo toolbar. Removing this didn't help. Anybody with similar problems or know a possible solution?

When I'm moving the mouse in Internet Explorer 11 (App Mode) to the left or right side of the screen, a gray semi-transparent back/forward button will appear (see attached screenshot). By pressing on of these button you get to the previous or next webpage.

My problem: On a visited website is a link on the exact same spot where the "back" button of IE 11 will appear. If i move my mouse over the link for clicking it, the "back" button of IE 11 will apper and cover the link so I can't click it.

How can I click the coverd link or hide/turn off the "back" button of IE 11?

A long time ago I tried out blackbox for windows, I didn't like it and decided to go back to plain old windows. After that, every time the explorer started it would put up a plain black background over the wallpaper I had chosen which was displayed until the explorer actually started. If I kill the explorer I can see the wallpaper.

This wasn't that big a deal until other issues caused me to reinstall windows XP again, not an upgrade, over the old install. Now everything is working really well again, except that the explorer is still covering up my old wallpaper every time it starts...this is really annoying!

If anyone can help me fix this problem, I would really, really, really appreciate it,

I am having a wallpaper issue on my Mother's computer, she's running Vista 64-bit Home Premium. For some reason the background color is being displayed over the wallpaper image instead of behind it. I am still able to load background images normally, but they are only visible through the translucent Aero glass start bar or sometimes while flipping programs when using Switch Between Windows. If I resize the start bar up. Then resize it down again the image is visible temporarily as the background color moves to fill it. If I switch out of the aero interface nothing changes except that I am no longer able to see the image through the start bar.

Having recently upgraded my computer, and thus getting a much bigger hard drive, I have been recording a lot of films off TV through Windows Media Center. I have since noticed that all of the films have been put into the DVD library, but they are just displayed with a blue rectangle.

How can I add a DVD cover picture to each of these?

It's obviously not causing a problem, just a purely cosmetic thing!

My computer is running Vista 32-bit, and the recorded TV is being put in the default Recorded TV folder, if that helps.

Hello everyone!! I was unsure of where to post this question,,so feel free to suggest i move it elsewhere becuase i wasn't sure wher to place it.
In a regular folder,,i would use a software program like Mp3 Tag, and i would "attach" the photo or album cover of my choice to each song,,so that in additon to each time i play the song on my computer or my phone,,the photo would appear and...when i open the folder in large view..each song would show my chosen photo/picture.

I've recently changed all my music to flac. It still shows up the picture,,but it doesn't show the picture in the folder view. I really enjoy opening the folders of my music and seeing the album cover/photo of my choice.

Any ideas??? Thank you

A:Album covers photos to be shown on each song, in each fold

Whether you use mp3 or flac. It should show the album image and in the folder view, it should show the image for each song.
Make sure you have an album image file specifically called: Folder.jpgMake sure each folder properties->Customize, you set the folder as Music folder.

Hi unskilled:

That site you linked to is from Geocities, which lets you create your own web site for free. Have your friend log on to Geocities and follow a template to create their own site.

Good luck!

Hello,I will be helping you with your problemsSome points for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of us Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability. Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post. Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process. Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of hartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process.

Hello guys from somewhere west of Africa:

I am visiting in a friend´s house and I do not have my Desktop. Kind of heavy for traveling. Anyways, he recently moved from XP to Windows 7 but first he backed the C:\ drive up into a backupFile.bkf. Well, guess who can´t read it now. Windows 7 is clueless about this MS file (*.BKF) made by Windows XP.

Please tell me there is a work around this little fluke.

Is there a solution?

Can someone help me please, I have a Toshiba satellite A200 and my base score is 3.0 I have games that are 5.7 how can I get my base score up to 5.7 or do I have to get a new computer

I would much appreciate it thank you Leigh.

A:How can I get my base score up to 5.7?

Helllo Leigh, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Double check to make sure that you have all of the latest versions of your device drivers installed. These can affect your WEI score. Especially for "Graphics" if you didn't have them installed already.

If not, then unfortunately, that would usually mean that you will need to buy faster hardware to replace the ones that you have low WEI scores on.

Could you post a screenshot showing your full WEI screen to see what it says?

Hope this helps for now,

I’m just starting out in Business but I could use a decent Data base system to keep track of customers, addresses, numbers, and dates as far as what was done and when. I’m not looking to ‘take over the world’ just yet but something for getting started and very reasonable.

The biggest challenge is that I’m working with Town inventories and there grand lists, but need a way to keep track of properties once I filter them from the GL. The Grand lists are usually in Excel.

Any suggestions?

PS. I can run the TSG SysInfo latter on when I'll be at the main computer.

I just got an everex A with monitor won't with base fit flat screen monitor from Tiger Direct The monitor won t fit into the stand I believe that the stand is the wrong part for this monitor monitor won't fit with base The male and female parts monitor won't fit with base are the correct size and shape but inside of these are a series of tube and tab monitor won't fit with base shaped moldings that are clearly pressing against each other causing the monitor to not seat far enough into the base for the locking tabs to engage I can see evidence of this when examining the parts after an attempt I am positive that the monitor and base are oriented correctly Tiger direct sent me to Everex tech support Everex tech support after telling me to try to press with all of my weight or even hammer the two parts together They said that they would cover it even if I break the monitor No luck They concluded that I must indeed have the wrong base and said that because of this I need to arrange and exchange with Tiger direct I called the rep from tiger direct back and had to leave a message which has yet to be returned I feel like I am getting the run arround Does anybody have any suggestions toward solving my problem or with dealing with Tiger direct Does anybody know how common it is for monitor bases to not fit the monitor itself Thanks Scott nbsp

A:monitor won't fit with base

How long has it been since you made those calls? I'd try to give them another chance. You probably have the wrong base.
