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.)

Hello there,
Have you tried to update your USB Host controller drivers? If updating doesn't work reinstall them.

Hope that helps.

You might want to have a look at this program;
http://www.uwe-sieber.de/drivetools_e.html
On that site, scroll down to the 9th black heading; Drivecleanup.zip
It runs as a DOS command, I use this once every few weeks to clear out the USB history, which might be why your PC is having trouble connecting to all your external HDDs. I have used this for years, very useful.

Hi folks,
I am new to to TECHSPOT,please bear my ignorance.
I want to use my laptop for downloading purpose.I like to download movies and documentary films and watch them later.
Can you guys suggest me a laptop model with their specifications so that I can go for it an buy the same.
Which will be a better option an AMD or an INTEL processor

My usage would be say 8-10 hours daily which would include 2-3 hours of watching downloaded movies, surfing various websites and of course socializing a bit.and this would be almost a daily affair.

Look for audio drivers on the motherboard CD delivered to when after purchasing your system. If you can't find it or don't have mobo CD around, navigate to manufacturer website and download driver for audio device from there.

Good luck!!

Computer is a Dell OptiPlex 3100
OS is Win7 Professional

For some reason, ANY USB device I try to install is not recognized. Only existing USB devices.

I first noticed it when I tried installing a USB stick. In device manager I get an error 28 under properties. At the time I pretty much shrugged my shoulders. I should point out that the same USB stick work fine in other computers including an identical computer to the one I'm having trouble with.

Tonight I tried installing a different keyboard. I have the same problem..Windows doesn't install the driver.

Other USB devices (mouse, old keyboard, USB stick of a different brand, etc) work just fine.

It's almost like something is preventing Win from recognizing ANY drivers. Something disabling plug-and-play?

I've Googled until my head spins. I sure hate to call Dell (PC is still under warranty)

The model of my laptop is Toshiba Satellite L645.
I have encountered overheat issues recently and I thought it was the dust that clogged around the fan. I did the clean up and up everything back. I manage to boot up the computer and reach the window dekstop but the fan spin up for one or half seconds then stop.. Somehow, after a while, the fan worked and spin for quite sometimes.. Then again, the fan spin up for one or half seconds then stop and eventually my laptop overheat again.

IS the problem arises from the fan itself, or the thermal sensor problem? Im not sure.. pls help me =(

A:Devices and router teaming up to fry my brain

With the iphone I would try to forget the wifi network under your settings and then trying to reconnect it. They have weird issues like this often and that usualy fixes the issues. I have also have seen issues in the past with how my wireless routers have been configured. I have seen issues with mixed mode configurations and such. Can you send me any information on how your wireless router is configured?

A:Multiple issues over multiple devices

First. You should try to NOT use a wireless connection for any type of gaming: PC, Mac, Console, etc. If you can hard wire the xbox you'll be waaay better off than using wireless.

Now... Yes, the issues could be related - there maybe an issue with the Belkin N router. I'd try to first reset the Belkin router to default settings, check on manufacturer website for instructions how, most routers you can press a "reset" button w/ a paperclip or ball point pen. Reconfigure the Belkin router, recreate the wireless network and see how everything works. If you are still having issues, humor me and connect the Dell directly to the DSL modem, bypassing Belkin router. See if you still have connection issues, if you do then it could be the DSL modem that is the problem and call your ISP to replace. If you don't have same issues then it's most likely an issue with the Belkin router. Replace it. Don't buy the dirt cheapest router at the store, but you most likely don't need the most expensive one either. Find a good middle ground router, ask sales associate to assist you accordingly.

Post back, Hope this helps!!

Hello everyone,
I'd like to know how (if possible) to make it so that my laptop does not automatically change screen brightness when plugging in or unplugging.

You see, there is a brightness setting that is saved for plugged in and unplugged, and when you change between plugged in and unplugged it reverts the screen brightness to that saved level.

For example if you have it unplugged and you set the screen brightness to 100% then plug it in, it saves the unplugged screen brightness to 100%. Now when you're plugged in you change it to minimal brightness. Later when you unplug and leave the screen brightness will revert back to 100%.

I'd like to disable this automatic screen brightness change.
Thanks for reading.
 

A:Stop laptop from changing screen brightness when plugging in

A:USB doesn't recognize devices on laptop

Hey odriscoll27. I assume your USB ports were working before you tried installing the Kodak printer. Do any USB devices now work in any ports?. Don't connect that printer to any other pc until you find out what caused this. I would first try uninstalling the ports in Device Manager, then reboot and let Windows reinstall the drivers and hopefully it will work. If it does work, check/try another printer cable and try installing it again. Is your Win7 OS at the SP1 level?.

I recently purchased a new computer for my business It is a Systemax SYX- operating on Windows I operate three small CNC controlled machines with it The machine input is via serial cable which I have connected to the computer with USB to serial adapters I have operated these machines in the same configuration with older pc s that had far less devices dropping USB keep out power than this one without any issues but this one keeps USB devices keep dropping out dropping the usb connection The computer is plugged into a amp circuit that has nothing else operating on it other than the monitor and speaker system I have checked and tested the circuit for wiring issues circuit breaker issues and power draw which have shown no problems with the circuit The problem begins when I use a small paper shredder connected to the same a c circuit I can hear the usb connection drop by the familiar usb disconnect sound and the connection to one or more machines is lost when the shredder is operating When I unplug each of the usb adapters from the computer I get another disconnect sound and then plug them back in The connection is restored and I can communicate with the machines once again There is not a single adapter that fails or a single usb port I have tried every combination of usb ports available on the computer with the same results No other devices fail that I can tell such as keyboard mouse or printer They all appear to remain connected unless they are re-setting themselves A couple of days ago I added a small refrigerator to the circuit and now it appears that when the fridge compressor kicks in the usb connections drop as with the shredder Do I have a problem with the computer power supply that will not deliver enough power for the usb ports or could there be a loose connection or board The specifications show that is has a quot watt Bronze Power Supply quot As I stated before I have had the same CNC machines connected with the same usb-serial adapters as well as two dongle security keys keyboard mouse and printer connected to other less powerful computers and never had any issues like this Am I asking too much from the usb power supply or something It has twelve ports and two ports available which I have tried all of them with the same results I am using seven ports to include two for the dongle keys which I can t imagine would draw any noticeable power I am not a computer genius so if this is something simple that is easily solved someone please let me know how to do it If not I guess I ll have to have a little talksee with the salesman that sold it to me nbsp

A:USB devices keep dropping out

I'm not an expert on this, so perhaps wait for someone else's thoughts before doing anything. But I can tell you what I think is happening and what I would do.

I think that the compressor kicking on/shredder motor are generating some electrical noise on that circuit and your Power Supply Unit (PSU) is unable to properly handle the noise. That is a little disconcerting in itself.. but on top of that USB is 5V and hard drives also use 5V this makes me concerned about what that noise and/or voltage drop/spike is doing to the hard drive PCB.

What I would do, is plug your computer in to an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS), they are supposed to kick in if an undervoltage, overvoltage, or significant electrical noise is encountered. That should solve your problem. However, it is going to be somewhere around $50 or more (you can get cheaper ones, but I think the minimum that should be purchased is one that will interface with your computer, the real cheap ones won't). You can have your shredder and fridge on the same circuit still, but I would advise against plugging those devices into the UPS itself. The UPS will likely have 1 line of outlets that are not on the 'battery backup' side, and they obviously should be isolated from each other, but I would feel more comfortable if your fridge and shredder were not plugged in to the UPS unit at all.

So, if you can talk to your salesman, I would suggest to him that you think you need a better quality PSU. If he's going to charge you more for a better one (which he probably will), keep in mind that if the increase in price is more than the price of a UPS it probably isn't worth it.

I know this is a much discussed subject but I haven t yet found a thread with the answers I need My problem started with a refurbished PC I bought earlier this year It had a Gb HDD which sounded fine and it is running Windows Ultimate The HDD was formatted with two USB not devices loading partitions C and F Everything worked well enough to start with but I soon realised that not enough space had been allowed for the C drive - only USB devices not loading Gb For various reasons I couldn t go back to the supplier so I carried on thinking it would only be a slight inconvenience as I could direct software that defaulted to C to install in the F drive That worked OK for a time until I downloaded some stuff that would not divert and the provider said it could only run in the C drive so it was useless to me I then concluded that I needed to re-partition it After some unsuccessful searching I found Mini Tool Partition Wizard that was able to tackle my problem I successfully removed partition F and merged the space gained with C thus providing more than enough capacity Having done all this I discovered I had quot lost quot one of my two external HDDs that I could not connect to my camera or my GPS running watch and that my memory sticks were not recognised Probably my Tom-Tom won t connect either but I haven t yet tried it A Google search found what appeared to be a solution that was published on this site last year that involved uninstalling USB drivers and then plugging the equipment back in as at their first use This the instructions said would enable the equipment to reinstall itself when plugged in I did it wrong at first and succeeded only in quot losing quot the second HDD and my Epson DX USB printer A second shot paying meticulous attention to the instructions restored the HDD but not the printer I had downloaded a set of Windows drivers for the printer when I acquired this PC and switched from Windows XP Professional to Windows so uninstalling and reinstalling them returned the printer to working order almost What that means is that every so often the printer is reported as not being ready to print but rebooting the PC seems to cure the problem I am now left with the PC not acknowledging the presence of the camera the Garmin Forerunner watch the memory sticks and one of the two HDDs The odd thing is that having carried out the USB driver cleanup procedure and plugging the bits and pieces back in the PC reports that Windows is now installing each item as it is reconnected But they still don t show up anywhere I will just add that when I disconnect the devices I do so at the device end as to reach the back of the computer involves squirming around awkwardly under the built-in desk unit but I read somewhere that disconnecting at either end is equally good The camera the memory sticks and the running watch are usually connected via the front sockets I look forward to hearing from you Alan nbsp

Second,
In RUN, type : Devmgmt.msc
The device managaer opens...
On the Action Menu, click Scan for hardware changes...
Then ur PC should recognize ur USB device...
Third,

Two terminology questions
1)What is the name of the device many people have in their home that allows them to connect multiple machines to the internet wirelessly?
2)Just because multiple machines share the same network connection (I.e. same internet connection) does that mean they are in a network? For example if my laptop and desktop connect to the same [insert word from question 1 here] it doesn't really seem like they are on a "network".
 

A:Terminology regarding network devices

A network is connecting two or more devices together for communications between them. Whether its a simple cable connecting two machines or a switch connecting five machines, its still considered networking.

Switches are multiple network ports that will share a network connection between several computers at one time by switching between the ports. A switch does not consist of a Wide Area Network (WAN) port used for connecting to Internet Service Provider (ISP). There are Wireless Access Points bundled within some Switches.

Wireless Access Points (WAP) are specifically what the name implies, they do not include switch or router functions.

Routers are needed for ISP connections through the use of a WAN port. A Switch and WAP has independent functions which can be found bundled within a Router.

You have an option of purchasing all three network components bundled together within one package of you can purchase them all separate as individual network components.

Hi All -

I'm helping a friend in need whose HP Pavillion p6320y does not detect any devices during startup. I.e., the brief startup shows memory being found properly, but when listing drives 1 - 4, none are found.

Looking in the bios, and noting all settings for drives, then reloading default settings (hoping for bios corruption) gave the same result. All the settings were the same after resetting to default (and no drives were found).

The PC was working yesterday and was running Ubuntu off of a CD.

Hard to imagine what could be wrong outside of a motherboard problem, but then that's what I'm asking. Any other reasonable things to try?

Best Regards to all,

David

The bios has probably been setup to use AHCI or onboard RAID functionality. In those cases, HDD manipulation will be handed over to the appropriate software sitting on the boards ROM. So, it'll definitely not show up in bios.

I have had many issues with this comupter, but my Dell Inspirton 1545 had started to read "no bootable devices" and wouldn't start at all. Now, after buying and installing a brand new harddrive, it reads it again, but only SOMETIMES!

When it gives me options of rebooting or running a diagnostics test, if I switch some stuff around or restart it, or even just leave it alone for a little while, I can start it and it works fine. Except after a short while of using it, it will malfunction and go to "no bootable devices" page again. Tech support says that the hard drive may not be connected properly, but I don't know what to do!
 

A:Dell Inspiron says "no bootable devices" with brand new hard drive

Probably a silly question, but is anything on the hard drive, like an O.S.? Has the "new" hard drive already been formatted? I'm only asking for sometimes some of my clients will go behind my back and install things like hard drives on their own and try to load an O.S. on them, failing to go through the formatting process, and they in the end either through frustration or embarrassment wind up calling me to drive to their house and fix their problem, like installing the O.S. properly.

Also checking your connections might not hurt, just make sure everything is fitting nice and snug and connected the right way.

(This was just me kind of thinking out loud for you.)

Hey Guys,

my motherboard is an ASUS P8H67-M PRO i built my computer a few days ago and haven't really had any major problems but i noticed today when i turn my computer on there is a little message the top left hand corner of the screen i can really make it all out as it is gone in an instant but what i can make out is
"No Devices"

Does anyone know how to fix this? it doesnt make sense as my drives work fine and they are recognised inside the bios. The only issue i have had is i cam to install linux today and i received an error message saying CD/DVD + USB devices not found and i cant help thinking they are linked.

Thanks in advance

Hi
I think you missed some wires, eg the cpu power cable, its usually yellow and black, its next to the cpu heatsink.
Or make sure that you ram is connected well and lastly check that you processor is locked well...
Oh, i have forgotten, is you mobo an ATX with 24pin or 20pin?
if its 24pin, make sure that all the power connectors are all in and well fitted..

A:USB Wireless adapters stop working

If you haven't already, try using a 3 ft. USB extension cable so you can move the adapter around for better reception.

You can also try installing the most recent driver available for your adapter. Uninstall your old driver from Programs and Features first. As you know, you install the driver first and then plug in the adapter afterward.

On one of my PCs I use a USB adapter with a 3 ft. extension. I tried a Trendnet and it worked well for awhile but it finally started to become unreliable. I'm now using a Rosewill RNX-G1. I like it because it has an external SMA antenna which seems to get good reception.

Are the Keyboard and mouse plugged in by PS2 or USB? If it is PS2, try and plug in a USB keyboard and/or mouse, see if there are any responses.. Other things you can try to do to look for a computer response and see if it is frozen is plug in ANY USB device, it should start checking for hardware or at least have something show.

Also the time in the bottom right corner will count up as time passes, this will also tell you the system is not completely frozen, or you could run some type of counting/visual program that loops and continues, see if it runs after the mouse/keyboard stop.

Hi,

When I use a public computer at the library, there is no option to Safely Remove the USB Flash Drive. How do I remove my flash drive in this condition without damaging anything? I've thought of simply deleting the Kingston icon that appears on the desktop, but I'm not sure if that would work, or if it'd cause further problems.

What's the best solution in this case?
 

A:Safely removing a USB drive without the stop command

I am surprised that they don't have the safely eject USB drives. Do they even work? They might be blocked by policy.
You are correct to be concerned as this can definitely damage your stick.

If you can get into computer management at the library (Right mouse on my computer and select manage), then expand Storage\Removable Storage until you find your Media USB Device and right mouse click on that and select "Eject". Long way around the Mulberry Bush i am afraid.

Perhaps someone else knows a cmd command.

Time for a re-install, and look at your BIOS setups closely... you likely have some problems that can be corrected with changes as you boot to <F2> or <F10>
Start with Default, then go through each setting on the list. There are specific settings for IDE/EIDE... and they are not always obvious changes by the way they are worded...

Yes, it does sound like the graphics card is failing. Do you happen to have another card to test in your PC or can you test your 8500GT in another PC to confirm it?

A:No bootable devices?

What specific version of Windows 7 do you have?

You do know know that completely erase the HDD means COMPLETELY erase the hdd right? That means you have no operating system installed. The repair CD won't help all it does is repair; you need an install CD.

You bought Windows 7 right? Why don't you pop that CD in?

I think your system's bios is not reading the HDD; check the bios though to make sure.

I have Verizon FIOS, 2 desktop PCs (1-Windows XP Home; 1-Ubuntu); 1 laptop (Windows Vista); and 1 USB printer connected directly to the Windows XP Home desktop PC.

I want to be able to print from any of my workstations directly to the printer. It is not a networked printer, as it connects directly to the Windows XP desktop PC.

Is this possible? If so, how? Everything is hard-wired to a wireless router except for the laptop which uses the wireless capabilities.

Thanks in advance.

If this remains true, (I've tried downloading WINDOWS service package 2, which I can't get to work) then you are screwed.
You need that Windows disk to repair the problem you have. And you need Service Pack 2. Service Pack 3 is optional.
Time to spend some cash... or borrow a Windows install disk that will work with your old product ID.

Earlier today i decided to format my desktop computer. I got a windows xp disc from my nan and put it in. I formatted my computer.

When it finished i checked device manager and there is no devices. I don't know what i can do. My router is all set up and working fine and i am on the internet on my laptop. The ethernet cable is plugged into my desktop but it wont connect to the internet.

Please help me


 

A:Formatted PC with Windows disc, no devices and cannot connect to router

Hello,
what you need are the drivers for your PC.
If it is from Dell,HP or similar go on their support page and get drivers for your PC there.
If this is self built PC, than you will need to know what are the components inside,especially network card and than download the drivers.
I suppose you will download drivers on your laptop.Put the drivers on an USB key or CD and then install them on your desktop. usually once the chipset and network card is installed, the rest you can download directly on this PC. Do not forget to install anti-virus software and do the updates.
Cheers

After considerable time and effort, I managed at last to find the correct Sound Max driver for this machine. The history is: Bought a used machine Compaq EVO d310, for personal and not technical reasons I must use Win2k O/S, HP does not provide drivers for Win2k Only for XP. When I finally got the right driver, at the next boot I received an alert "No adi codec driver found". In the device manager, all audio functions display as working properly. Now what???

For personal reasons? Almost all Windows computers can run XP now. This is a laptop? You can use a USB sound device on it. Here is an example:

I use win xp pro, and I just installed Windows Media Player, but why the player stop playing in full-screen mode? It's ok minutes ago. I know this question is kind of stupid, any one knows how to fix it.
 

A:Why does the Player stop playing in full-screen mode?

It is a feature of Windows Media Player, not a fault
It will automatically pause when manually selecting "Full Screen" (I suspect just to allow you to get ready)
You then need to press "Play" to play it again

Can I also suggest that you try another Media Player > Free VLC Media Player
It does an excellent job at playing most movies (anyway, much more than WMP) And is very easy to use, and I use it

I haven't found a way to do this yet, I have a sound card connected to some speakers and a USB headset and they only work one at a time. It is possible if you have a non-USB (i.e.3.5mm) headset and a 3.5mm splitter.

A:Mass Storage Devices Not Reading

I'm pretty sure it's a driver-related issue, but I can't tell you exactly which one since I don't know. All I can tell you is that after doing various driver updates on two different PCs (one notebook with Windows Vista 32-bit and one desktop running Windows 7 64-bit) I had the EXACT same issue happen.

When I rolled the drivers back everything worked again.

I'm reasonably certain your issue is due to a driver conflict.

Hi All,

When I switch the laptop on I get the following message and 2 beeps:

'No bootable device(s) selected'

'strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for set-up utility'

I then retry the boot, but get the same message appearing on screen.

I then try the set-up utility, where I experimented with the boot configuration. I basically changed the Boot First Device option from 'CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive' to 'Internal HDD', restarted the laptop and got the following message and 2 beeps:

'No boot sector on hard disk - 'strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for set-up utility'

It seems like there is no O/S, so I tried booting a Win2K disc I have, but cannot by pass the above messages. Does anyone have any suggestions? Look forward to your replies.

Hi

did you buy any chance remove the drive from the laptop at all... ?

the c610 has a little blade adaptor that changes the standard IDE pins into a flat set of pins, they sometimes dont sit right or the drive isnt snugly in the drive bay....

take it out and reinsert it,,on boot up go into the BIOS (F2 at boot) and check the drive shows, if it doesnt then the drive has died and needs to be replaced.

Sounds like a dead hard drive.... You will need to replace the hard drive .. To be sure you can download an Ultimate Boot CD and run some of the tools to see if the drive is DOA or the Master Boot Record is corrupt.

My girlfriend bought a Acer aspire 5315 series laptop last year August and the adapter suddenly stop working. it was working just fine last night and a few hour after, nothing. I've been noticing that the wire is starting to get a spiral twist but i don't think thats the problem. When it plugged into a outlet the light on the adapter it self comes on but no power is reaching the laptop itself. I cut the tip that connects top the laptop to see if the wire broke but its fine. What could be the problem here?
 

A:Acer charger stop working

It could be the actual connector on the laptop where you plug the adaptor in to. I know on the old laptop i have here that the power port in the laptop is a real pain, always having fiddle around with the adaptor pulling it in and out to get it just right, so it will accept power from the power pack. Fiddle around with it plugged in to see if it will accept any charge, if not it must be something to do with the actual power adaptor it's self.

I have an Aspire 3050 running XP, which when booting, gives the message 'Operating System Not Found'. I have checked the BIOS and neither the hard drive nor the optical drive are detected, the USB ports are also inactive, the hard drive works fine in another machine.

Memory check is good and there are no beeps on POST. Any advice on possible causes or further checks would be greatly appreciated.

Hi My computer has recently encountered a problem whereby when i on the power at my CPU lights fans CPU stop up, spin all boot and will be lighted up and fans start spinning But that lasted only about second After that everything stops There are a few times whereby all of them will CPU boot up, all fans spin and stop start working once again after stopping but usually they stopped again with very few times successfully boot up I had brought it to the service center and what that guy did is remove my ram and place it back To my surprise my CPU boot up However a few days later the CPU boot up, all fans spin and stop same problem occur again And I did what that guy CPU boot up, all fans spin and stop did but this time round I did clean my RAM metal piece I don t know what do you call the thing that attach the RAM to the motherboard It failed a few times but boot up eventually after several tries took out the ram put it back I had totally no idea what is going on This does not solve the problem as it is going to come back and haunt me once again I have no idea what is causing it thus I could not bring it to the service center once again as he will tell me this if he is able to boot up my computer quot so what do you expect me to do quot It really hurts Desperate for help hope someone know what is exactly going on Thanks nbsp

A:CPU boot up, all fans spin and stop

If there's a faulty connection, there's a faulty connection... There isn't a whole lot you can do... But try this:

Get a Computer Duster can (A "Can of Air") for $2, remove the RAM, and carefully put the tip of the spray extension (They usually come with a little straw thingy, stick it in the nozzle) near the RAM Slot and blow out any dust or loose dirt/debris/whatever.

Be careful and use short bursts. Too much air friction can actually cause a buildup of static electricity, especially on plastic components (I have fried many a motherboard with this... so really, be careful)

Is there any software that can help me out?

I have recently installed a trial of 'e-Speaking' (a voice command program). I have a bluetooth headset (Plantronics) and a bluetooth dongle (a cheap bluetooth dongle Broadcom BCM2045A).

Is there a way to communicate to this program and have this program respond to me via bluetooth headset...

When i click on volume control it says 'no mixer devices' or something along those lines. I dont know what this means but my sound worked fine yesterday and I think I was getting those errors then also but now for some reason sound has stopped working altogether. I don't know what to do I don't know if I need to reinstall my sound card or what? I dont think I still have the disc. I got new speakers and they didnt come with a disc so Im really confused. What do i do? Im going crazy the only solution I can think of is buying a new computer but I cant really afford that. Please someone help me..........please.
 

A:No mixer devices? My sound isn't working...

If you fill in your profile then we will know what hardware you are using. It looks like you need to reinstall your sound drivers but without knowing what sound card or on-board sound you have we are unable to tell you where to download them from.

Hope that helps. Rik.

Having a really annoying problem with my sound driver (ha20x22k.sys) in Windows XP lately, keeps reoccurring more frequently now it seems. I will be listening to music and at the end of a random track, the system will freeze for a split second and then go to a bsod w/ the following information:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

****STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000008, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x9D3AA47F)

*ha20x22k.sys address stamp 9D3AA47F

The sound card is a Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty. I do not believe the card itself is to blame for I am running the latest drivers and it works fine under Windows 7. Any help with this would be extremely appreciated. I've attached the corresponding minidump. Thanks in advance!

A:Tyan K8WE S2895 - CPU fans start up then stop

That Tyan is just a bad board. Well known in tech shops.
Regardless, power supply makes no difference for basic driving of a board... there is always enough power from any UL approved one. It is the fancy sudden demands on power that make the differenc.
Messing with a Tyan is a waste of time. There is nothing to learn such as there is with a Biostar, Asus, MSI, Gigabyte...

Hello. I'm running Windows Vista 32 bit and I was wondering if it is possible to manage the hardware IRQ's manually. I had a conflict with my usb controller and SATA controller since they were sharing the same IRQ. I finally just decided to disable the USB controller and use PS/2 devices. This was only a temporary solution since I want to use my computer now with my USB Steering Wheel, Joystick, Hardrive, 360 Controller, Flash Drive, Cell Phone, Ipod, and Video Camera. I believe I read somewhere that in order to manage ACPI you need to install Windows in a certain way. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

The title might sound a little weird but here's my problem. Yesterday i was chatting with my friends with a crappy headset then it broke.I just got a new one but this one is weird whenever i'm playing a music or something my friends can hear it too. I try checking it by using the sound recorded. It seems like they picked up the music in the background too. Is there anyway to stop it so i can use my mic alone?
 

A:How to STOP playing music and talking to the mic at the same time

Try this.

Click start/control panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Advanced and make sure the mic is muted on the playback side.

Hi,

I recently put in a new AMD 64 X2 5400+ and I've been getting BSOD at random intervals.

I've run memtest and found zero errors, I ran Orthos for 12 hours with zero problems passed 4/4.

My hard drives are SATA's and roughly 4 or 5 years old.

This is one of the stop errors I've gotten:

0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x868E1D90, 0x868E1EDC, 0x8244400)

wanted second opinions on this error, trying to rule out the processor.

The mobo is a Biostar TF8200 A2+ (got it back in June '08)
 

A:BSOD Stop Error: 0x000000F4

Could you upload some MiniDumps it can help to solve the Problem.

Also how long did you run Memtest86 for?

Orthos is basically the same as Prime95,
What Test or Tests did you run on that?

Small FFT's should be run for testing the Processor, thats assuming that Orthos is similar to Prime95.
