Three event errors on bootup: Event ID 7006, 7000 and 7009

Q: Three event errors on bootup: Event ID 7006, 7000 and 7009

Out of the blue I get 3 event errors when I boot up my Home Premium 64 bit. First time in two years.

Event ID 7006:
The ScRegSetValueExW call failed for FailureActions with the following error:
Access is denied.

I don't have AVG. I have Agnitum Firewall, Panda Antivirus (Free).

Event ID 7009:

A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the IPsec Policy Agent service to connect.

Event ID 7000:

The IPsec Policy Agent service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

When I checked the windows services table, I noticed that IPsec has in fact been started but probably not in a timely fashion. How do I get rid of these 3 annoying errors although I don't notice any performance problems in my laptop?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Preferred Solution: Three event errors on bootup: Event ID 7006, 7000 and 7009

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.)

Hi Atom.

"Event ID 7006:
The ScRegSetValueExW call failed for FailureActions with the following error:
Access is denied."

These events are normal because of Panda Cloud Antivirus' self-protection feature.

"Event ID 7009:

A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the IPsec Policy Agent service to connect."

Follow the instructions from here:

Event ID 7009 — Basic Service Operations

You can put new value as 60000 instead of 30000.

The Event ID 7000 should disappear when you boot your laptop next time.

Hope this helps.

In a strange turn of events, Nvidia elected to use Epic Games' media event (instead of its own last night) at the Game Developers Conference to reveal its newest flagship graphics card, the Titan X.

A:Nvidia crashes Epic Games' media event, announces Titan X graphics card

Soo... What are the chances of a 6GB "980Ti" variant? A bit like the 780Ti was to the Titan Black?
Because it would be better for games and a hell of a lot cheaper

If the rumor mill is to be believed, the price is going to be $1,349, Most people who buy this for gaming will have no use of the double precision floating point prowess of the card, and the few that would probably should have spent a couple hundred extra bucks to get a proper Quadro!

A:Networking errors between Win 8.1 and Win 7

You need ports 137-139 opened on both systems for names to resolve.

Get the IP address of both systems and then access using the IP of the target. If that works, it is a name resolution issue.

A:3 questions about fixing micro sd cards errors.

the card said it was 64 gigs (Fat32) when I looked at it on my windows 7 PC.

Next I put a song on it and it seemed to be working ok and then I tried for format the card.Click to expand...

Rule number one:- if it isn't broken then don't fix it.

The issue here is windows will not format Fat32 above 32gb, so invoking the formatter when all you needed was to delete the file was a major mistake.

Personally, your online handle Piratekitty and the fact that you are reselling on the net bothers me. I've pointed you in the right direction this time, but will not respond in the future to your postings.

I have a Dell Studio 1737 Windows Vista Home 64 Service Pack 2. All of my drivers are up to date and I have the most recent BIOS.

I get this error message in my event viewer a couple of time an hour:

Source: ACPI
Event ID: 13

: The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

Also, when my computer is unplugged from the AC and running on battery power the system lags a lot and after about 15 minutes its turns off without warning.

I feel like this is all connected. Any advice?

Thank you!

A:DNS client event errors

Easiest approach is to delete the host file
\windows\system32\drivers\etc contains hosts

you need ADMIN privileges
First stop the client by getting a cmd prompt and enter net stop "dns client" (exactly as shown)
now cd to \windows\system32\drivers\etc

del hosts
then recreate it using echo "" >hosts
(that is two consecutive double-quotes without anything between)

now you should clear the event viewer log containing the error and follow up with
net start "dns client"

No, it is the computer you are running it on, in this case the Win 7. It just means that the disk controller hardware for the Win 7 is not functioning correctly.

Following instructions I opened and cleaned the interior electronics after it developed overheating problems that would result in it powering down. Following reassembly the computer will eventually restart but only after failing bootup at leastg two times. At initial startup or boot from hibernation the computer does not appear to reach boot source but emits a series of beeps, first 1 beep, then 3 beeps, another three beeps, and finally 1 beep. These are all about 1 second long and seperated by 1 second. Pressing and holding the start button again sometimes resuls in a full repeat of the above or the computer emits the series of 1single beats, 4 beats, one second long and one second seperation. Eventually pressing and holding he power button will evenually result in hearing the computer attempt to boot from the CD ROM (which is second on the list after the Internal HDD). Any help would be appreciated.

Occasionally I will get errors in my event viewer when I burn a music dvd or data disc. The errors are, device cdrom has a bad block and nvgts errors. If nvgts is to do with nvidia then what would that have to do with my dvd writer? I noticed after that dvd was made it had a cyclic redundancy check errors on it and it was a brand new disc. Also it gave me crc errors and the same errors in event viewer of cdrom and nvgts when trying to copy the disc contents to the hard drive. What I don't get is what would cause these errors when burning a disc and how did a brand new disc get crc errors? If anyone can help me that would be great. Thank You!
 

A:Errors when burning discs

Replace it. Asus, LG, Lite-On, Samsung, Plextor, and Pioneer all have DVD-RW optical drives in the $18 to $30 price range. Why put up with a troublesome unit when they are so inexpensive.
Optical drives, DVD-Rw drives wear out quickly... depend on it to fail within a year, and if used a lot it can fail in five months.

A:Various laptop errors with Windows 7

I hope you don't have both Norton and McAfee antivirus installed at the same time... Each of these programs separately, can easily "corrupt" Windows. If you have the option of reloading the OS fresh, I would recommend that you do this. Go with a free temp file cleaner and a free program like Microsoft Security Essentials to protect next time

We've recently removed 2 printers from our network (a Konica and a HP). Whenever any user EXCEPT 'Administrator' logs in now, they get the below "Connect to Printer" error dialog box. I've made sure to remove the printer from Printers and Faxes, and even the drivers in 'Server Properties' (under the File menu in Printers and Faxes). They're all Windows XP SP3 and rebooted after removal of the drivers.

I even tried Bruce Sanderson's cleanup suggestion. To no avail.

Here's how the error dialog box looks:

---------------------------
Connect to Printer
---------------------------
Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either the printer name was typed incorrectly, or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server. For more information, click Help.
---------------------------
OK Help

I took a look at the suggested registry fix at this techspot discussion but I don't think it applies to our problem.

Anything else to try?

I seem to be having a lot of problems with hard drives lately. I have the <windows root>\system 32\hal.dll error. Sometimes I can insert a winxp disk and go then go to the C:> prompt and copy this file from a mem. stick. Sometimes this works fine and then sometimes it won't.

It then has a Kernal load dll type error. I hate to pitch these hard drives if they can be fixed. Is there some type of utility, 'tool' or software that addresses this issue?

Thanks!
 

A:Hard drive errors

Nothing will repair a damaged drive but you can try and scan for bad sectors which may keep the drive from storing data there. Scan the drive with a diagnostic utility from whoever makes your drive and see if it detects any issues.

Please help! I am replacing an old PCI Graphic Card that ran ATI with a new Diamond Stealth S60 Radeon 7000 ATI PCI Graphic Adapter. But during the driver installation I receive the message "This display driver is not compatible with the display adapter installed in your system". I have tried using the Driver CD that came with the adapter and also downloaded the driver software from the manufacture site. Even attempted to remove all ATI software files and drivers and perform clean install. No Luck same message. Oh, and this is a custom built systems with Windows XP home/ P4. Therefore there is no onboard adapter in the bios to disable.

I recently inherited a little Presario laptop of course The little beauty works great except at startup I ll press the power button and the power LED will light up HD-light flashes sometimes and there s a sound from what I think are the speakers but nothing happens after that So I ll hold down the power button to shut it down again and repeat the above process several times Whether its on battery or AC doesn t change anything but I find it helps to leave it quot on quot for half a minute and then shut down and power up again but even that works irregularly Eventually after a few minutes of this trial-and-error the HD will spin up and the whole system works fine ever after until it s shut down or hibernating Does this sound familiar It isn t a really pressing issue I get along with it as is but if there s something wrong I d like to see about fixing it as well as ridding myself of the inconvenience Thanks in advance to anyone who can help nbsp

A:Compaq Presario 900 bootup issue

I have the exact same issue with my Presario 900.

It intermittently won't startup, the speakers click briefly, the screen stays dark and the Compaq logo won't display. If I shut it down and re-start it enough times it will eventually come back up.

Mine will also seize up just sitting there. Usually though, it happens if I move the laptop although I can't seem to find any definitive movement that always makes it seize.

I stripped the entire unit down and then re-installed everything. While I was there I cleaned up any grounds that I could find. The idea was that hopefully the issue would be solved by reconnecting and tightening everything.

When I re-started it it worked quite well for about a day. I was hopeful that it was fixed but it started doing it again :-(

I know these laptops have issues with the power cord jack but in this case mine's fine and I can't see that being the reason for the seizing. I'm quite certain it's a mainboard issue, probably caused by the case flexing when moved and thereby flexing the mainboard. I seem to recall running into a laptop repair person on the 'net some years ago that mentioned this was a common issue and that he could fix it. Regrettably he went off-line and hasn't been heard from since.

I know it's not the processor, the memory, the fans or any other common issue. I'm pretty certain it's mainboard flexing somehow/somewhere even though it occurs even when it's sitting on a solid table.

Like yourself, I'd love to find out what it is. I upgraded mine with internal wireless (complete with real antennas mounted in the lid) and a 7,200 RPM hard drive as well as numerous other 'hot rodding' It's still a great machine but I'm quite concerned that it's becoming an EOL product because of the seizing.

If you learn anything or run into someone knowledgeable, please update this thread!

Thanks!
Marvin

Hi everybody, I have a problem with my computer. I have a emachines t4510 which i bought off craigslist well the reason i bought it to run linix on it. The computer worked fine a first than all the sudden it wont bootup. The computer starts ok then when its ready to bootup (you see the Xp logo) then i noticed the cpu fan goes out which stops the bootup then i get a message that the cpu has been changed set settings in cmos and save did that still does the samething thought it might be the power supply but that wasn't the problem. Please Help
 

A:Computer won't bootup

eMachines has a very negative history with at least 18 different models... your T4510 is one of those...
It is the motherboard that usually goes bad, and makes it appear the power supply is bad...
But in our experience, the CPU, CPU fan, memory, optical drive, and hard drive are good... It is just not worth it to replace the motherboard with another eMachines model...
The most common problem is as you report... it will not boot up... but it is because of the motherboard curling or defective electrical channels in the board...
I don't know of a good fix except to replace the motherboard with one from intel... Often, the Windows install will still work, but we don't know about the Linux installs, because we haven't tried those.

Hi, when i load my pc up i get the following notification


I go into device manager and check my adapters and notice that they are not working



I am running windows 7 and i read somewhere Intel dont support these with compatible windows 7 drivers?

If thats the case what can i do? and what consequences can this have if both of them are not working?
 

A:Getting display errors

OK, you just can't stuff last months OS into a 6 year old PC and expect the drivers to be available. There is "Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor", available from M$, which would have told you not to do what you did, (install Win 7).

Now the board you're using has onboard graphics, as well as the Nvidia add-in card.
That has to be plugged into a standard PCI slot. So, how many graphics adapters do you want in the machine...?

Now, you can update the graphics driver from the links I provided in the other thread, or remove the add-in video card and replace it with a better PCI-E card, then install the latest driver for it.

Now, you're starting to ask the same question over and over, expecting a different answer, which is pointless.

With the Mickey Mouse BS you're trying with this old machine, if I were you, I'd be thankful it would still connect to the internet.

A:What's The Best ISO & Data CD Burner with The Least Errors?

Something like ImgBurn or Nero etc will be fine. Write errors usually happen from using inferior media and/or too high a burning speed. If you get good quality discs and burn at a slow rate the backup should write ok. I would verify the write if possible after the disc is completed.

Last night our second family PC Blue Screened with an 0x4E PFN_LIST_CORRUPT error which is a very strong indicator of corrupted memory.

Memory is Crucial Ballistix PC3200 (DDR 400) in a 4x512 (2 gigs) configuration in a socket 939 system Epox 9NPA+Ultra motherboard.

The specs on this memory are as follows: 2.8 voltage which the motherboard has it set at correctly as well as in 2T. The CAS is a designed 2-2-2-6 but mobo has it set at 3-4-4-8 which is probably due to the 4x512 configuration and 2T

Ran memtest and into the fifth PASS received 212 errors all in Test 5. I saw enough so I tested each stick individually for the minimum Passes of 7 and no errors on any of them even in test 5.

So I reinstalled all four sticks, checked the BIOS settings and ran Memtest again and in the very first PASS I received 20 errors in Test 5.

Any ideas?

A:1 GB Iomega USB 2.0 HDD errors

Typically I would guess that the drive isn't getting enough power, but since it is a 1TB drive (and there currently aren't any laptop drives that size) that it is a regular full size external with its own power supply.

So given that, I would download SeaTools for Windows and run the short and long DST on it and see if it passes. You've tried the Windows settings I would have also suggested.

Hi For some time at least months I have had occasional and sometimes more frequent NTFS errors on one or more of my hard drives My system is an Asus P AD -E Premium mobo Ghz Intel P single core hyperthreading Gigs DDR Mhz RAM BFG NVidia GeForce GTX MB on PCIE WD GB SATA drive configured as SATA on Intel NTFS errors ICH R - Boot Drive bran-new drive Seagate GB SATA drive configured as SATA on Intel ICH R - Backup drive ea Seagate GB SATA configured as SATA on the SIl - more backup these drives are almost yrs old Windows Ultimate on WD GB partition Windows XP Pro on WD GB partition The error I get is the following The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume lt volume name gt This error began when running Windows XP pro I recently installed Windows keeping XP on another partition same physical disk so I have a dual-boot I still get the errors in Win When it started I had a RAID setup using GB SATA drives on the Intel ICH R controller and had an additional GB SATA drive connected as SATA not RAID on the SIl controller The error was always on NTFS errors the single SATA drive on the SIl Now I have the system configured as standard SATA On the Intel ICH R I have configured SATA NTFS errors as AHCI On this controller I have the WD GB bran-new drive which is the boot drive and the Seagate GB drive that is the same one I originally had on the SIl as SATA when I had the RAID system on the Intel ICH R Since it was the drive on the SIl that was always giving me the errors on the old setup and now I am having the same errors but on the new WD drive but with that same old Seagate drive connected to the same controller that the new WD is connected I am thinking perhaps this old Seagate drive is the trouble But would a problem on one SATA drive cause problems on other drives connected to the same controller The more I think about this the more inclined I am to replace the motherboard The system is nearly yrs old and I would really like to get something faster anyway But before I spend any money on another mobo I would like to know what is going on with this one and whether these errors are caused by a hardware glitch on the mobo the HDD or in my OS What do you think Thanks for any help on this issue FW nbsp

A:NTFS errors

first i would replace the sata cables,
2.) do a low level format on the hd, that is giveing u problems.
3.) if the problem still exist, then it may be the mobo.

Low level software = Free software = http://www.killdisk.com/

Upon booting up my computer, my screen dims down. For example, when I boot up to my desktop, sometimes, my desktop display would be dimmed. A few seconds later, the screen would dim to the point that it'll appear as if nothing is displaying (if the monitor is looked at from eye level). However, upon closer inspection, I discovered that my monitor is displaying everything; however, I must look at the monitor at a certain angle to be able to see the icons. Could this be the result of a damaged PCI-E slot or a damaged video card?
 

A:Monitor dims upon bootup, stays dimmed

Do you have another PC to test the monitor or another monitor to test?

Anyone any ideas on this -Com router with PCs connected to it neither of the PCs can access the internet despite them both showing messages that the internet connection errors access Internet is running These PCs both have fixed IP addresses although changing them to dynamic makes no difference A ping from the PC to say google com does not respond A ping to the router gateway address and other PCs on the network is fine I can access the router setup through the browser to the gateway IP address and the router diagnostics all show everything working fine - happy happy joy joy The router is connected to the ISP and will ping and resolve google com without error A third PC my laptop which I know works perfectly on my home network also fails to connect to the internet I have not yet reset the router as the client has lost his ADSL account password Grrreat I have not poked about with ports yet but it might be worth doing maybe Any ideas why the PCs cannot access the net nbsp

A:Internet access errors

You are an oldtimer, who knows the ropes... so...
Did it once work, or is this a new install?
Did it work on one PC?
Can you get back to a simpler setup when it did work, and start over from there?
I would start over with one router. Remove all your installed software for that router.
In essence, start over.
You have missed something simple and obvious. You will find it.
Sometimes it is easier and less time consuming to start over than to find and fix, as you know.

A:New HDD/XP gets stuck booting, lots of event viewer errors

It appears that you have a nice system, if you can get it back to normal.
We have to suspect other hardware, since two hard drives have similar symptoms... but you may have copied evil stuff from the one drive to the other. How did you transfer files? Or an infestation.
What did you use to scan your system for virus and spyware infestations?
Have you carefully checked your cables... or even tried replacing them temporarily?
Examine all sockets for dirt and debris, and clean your system thoroughly but carefully.
You may need to rule out some things that do not seem part of the problem... as it may be a long and slow process to figger out where the problem is... I would start, if the drive will work well enough, by running MemTest86 for four hours or seven passes, which ever is longer... or removing half the memory to test the other half, then switching.
We always suspect the cables first. They can fail and look good.
Any defective hardware part can cause problems elsewhere if the conditions are right... so I would begin by making a check list, then trading out everything on the list... video card, modem even if not used, ethernet connection or software, .
I would also try another drive and cable... any other drive, even using the first drive, fully reformatted and reinstalled with Windows and basic software....
Windows will not normally cause these of problem, but if you have scratches or smudges that would make it difficult to read, then you could theoretically introduce errors... unlikely though that is.
You could have an optical drive error that is not seeing the software properly.
But it is also possible that your Asus board, good as it is, has a defect.

Weather I watch something on WMP or QT or watch YouTube, it all skips after like 10 seconds of playing. I thought that an additional 2gb of ram would help but it's only made other things quicker. I know everyone will jump to a video drivers solution but according to my page (I have an Acer 5520 Laptop Windows Vista basic) I have the latest drivers, can anyone think of anything else, java, flash, anything like that....its doing it for online streaming and some offline stuff too and it's really starting to depress me lol. Anyone have anything I can try, or what kind of info do you need from me,, thanx in advance, I appreciate it
 

A:Video errors, skips/buffers/lags

Are you running on wireless internet? Maybe with 1 or 2 other pc's in the house? The upgrade of ram at least got you performance boost, so good for you on that part.

What kind of connection are you running? Have you made sure you have updated java software installed?

Hi I recently got a problem where my PC lags up and i need to restart it I found out that one of the RAM s were faulty I ve got x GB I removed the faulty one and tested those together with Memtest It ran for about - hrs Did passes It did not get any errors so I assumed it was ok Today after the PC had been on for about hrs straight it froze again I m testing the RAM again but it takes for ever Can it be that i need to run Memtest even longer than passes to find any errors Or does the problem lie somewhere else I read here in several posts that if I let memtest run passs I can be fairly sure that the RAM is not faulty Is this the case or can it still detect errors after or Memtest 7 Faulty passes RAM errors no not? gets after more passes I know or well I am sure that the slots are working as they should Faulty RAM or not? Memtest gets no errors after 7 passes What else can this be If it doesn t get errors after passes should i continue to let it test or should i look for the problem somewhere else nbsp

A:Faulty RAM or not? Memtest gets no errors after 7 passes

Can the lockup be caused by the RAM not getting enough voltage?

You see... I just relized... I had 2 CL5's and 2 CL4's... Now there is one CL5 and 2 CL4... Can this be the reason? THat the CL4 does not get enough voltage?

A:Frequent Crash / No errors

Put your memory back in and run Memtest86 from a boot floppy or cd if you don't have a floppy. Let it run for several hours on both sticks unless its obvious theres something wrong. If you get errors you might be able to RMA the ram, Corsair is really good about it, just copy down the error codes and go to there web site and make an RMA request. Sometimes bad ram gets out into the world and they know its coming back to them, so there really good about it. I once had two bad 512mb sticks or DDR they didn't even make anymore, so they sent me two 1gig sticks to replace them. Cool huh?

Oh, I forgot, you might want to go into the bios and set safe defaults and see what happens.

Hello everyone,
Basically my WD external makes a clicking sound when plugged into my system and prevents the system from booting up altogether. When I unplug the drive from USB, my computer boots up fine (mostly). It almost seems as if the external drive is not getting enough 'juice' to boot up completely but my new system with 650w PS does not include any power-draining peripherals.

Is it possible that my external is corrupt? Does the clicking always indicate failure? Could it indicate lack of power?

ALSO, the room in which I have the drive in tends to see a fair amount of dust plenty of which has made its way onto (and into) the MyBook casing. Is it possible for dust to get inside the casing and ruin the drive?

Thanks for any input.
 

A:WD external clicks upon bootup, prevents XP load

It can be n issue with the USB plug
Yes dust can cause lots of issues
It's best to test it in another computer to confirm

But generally this sound is caused by a faulty harddrive itself

A:Some really strange bootup problems

Kill the overclock and see what happens. Reset to BIOS defaults, see how it boots then. If it works fine, then start adding back what you had changed in the BIOS. You could also test your RAM.

After that, you'll want to open up the case and reseat everything.

A:(BSODs) BIOS 1.0, RAM-errors, BIOS 2.1 -> none?

Update: Just today I noticed a faint "clicking" sound I believe is coming from the harddrive. It's probably just the usual sound of the harddrive, but it must've become louder since I can hear it.
Might a faulty harddrive be a part of it?

EDIT: For some reason this was only noticeable during the first 20-30 minutes of system uptime.

A:Problems with an ASUS P5B, no bootup to new drive

It sounds like you need to install the SATA/RAID controller drivers while you are installing Windows on the SATA HDD. You will need a floppy drive and diskette to install the SATA/RAID drivers via the F6 prompt early in the Windows setup process. BTW, this applies to Windows XP. You didn't say what the OS was. Anyway, you should consult your motherboard manual for the procedure for making the SATA driver diskette if your motherboard did not come with SATA/RAID floppies. It's not always a matter of copying and pasting the files.

If you don't have a floppy drive, you can make a slipsteam CD and install Windows that way. Google for the process for making a slipstream CD. Basically, you combine your Windows CD with the SATA/RAID drivers to make the installation CD, then you can avoid the F6 diskette issue.

A:Spontaneous Bootup problems

Have you tried to boot Windows in safe mode? Just to see if that works.

When it comes up fine have you checked for Viruses, etc...? Also, run the built in error-checking utility for your HDD.

You could also try to do a repair of Windows if you the XP CD with you.

Other than that you'll probably have to Wipe your HDD and start from scratch.

A:Hard Drive Bootup Problems, Help required - Windows not seeing new hard drive Options

Hi
This is what I would do to enhance performance and storage strategy:

1. Use the 20g for the os and housekeeping utes such as av, spyware, etc only, nothing else goes on that drive.
2. Use the 160g for apps installs.
3. Use the 200g for data.

This might get you past the bios/firmware/os/drive letter issue and make better use of the drives. The 20 isn't really good for storage anymore, but would be great for an os/system ute drive. It's performance is less than the other drives, but that's ok, most of the os will stay in ram anyway after boot, you won't make any real diff having a faster os drive.
You might want to place a pagefile on each drive so pageing can occur concurrently too.

A:Compaq Presario F700 w/ Vista boot errors?

Hi

your monitor isnt supporting the refresh rate or screen size selected, you will need to start in safe mode and set it to 640X480 and then reboot back into normal mode.

If this doesnt cure it start it safe mode and use device manager to remove the video card, reboot and let Vista refind it, you may need to update the driver.

I have a lap top computer that is set up to my home computer. It used to be able to print but it all of a sudden stopped printing and the error message says... windows cannot printy due to a problem with the current printer setup. Try one of the following *check the printer by priniting a test page from windows (which when tried it comes up with this error message...printer properties cannot be displayed. The prin spooler is not running)
*make sure the printer is turned on * reinstall the printer driver (again when this was done the print spooler not running came up)

I have been told it a possible print spooler corruption, becasue when you go to the area where you can stop and start print spooler it is already on and says it is started.

From time to time on my XP Home SP2 machine I get a "TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts." warning.

It's not the end of the world and my dsl has no other issues.

I can live with it, but wonder you know of a work-around.

Certainly appreciate any help.

A:Voltage Switch Affecting Computer Bootup :S!

congrats - you fried your system.
NEVER, change the voltage switch on the PSU to a voltage that is NOT your mains voltage. To do so can short and fry your system. If you're lucky, you have a fuse in your PSU - all you need to do is replace the PSU, if not, you have an expensive paperweight.

My problem started when I upgraded my computer to an Intel C2D, 2GB Corsair DDR2 Memory, Windows XP Pro, two Liteon LH-20A1S SATA DVDRW's, EVGA nForce680i video and Viewsonic flat screen all running on a EVGA NF680i S775 Mother Board.

Sometimes the machine freezes, sometimes not. The error message is: Source: atapi, Type Error Event ID 9, Description: "The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort7, did not respond within the timeout period". (At times I get Event 15 error)

I suspect it has something to do with the two Liteon DVDRW's I have.

Would anyone know if this is a known problem? I have the latest video drivers.

Thanks,

Well, this is the 2nd hard drive I have put on my new computer, and it is having the same problems as the first. It tends to make an odd clicking noise, followed by a hum, as if it is turning on and off continuously. These noises are normally accompanied by the computer "skipping." It would freeze for a while, and recover itself. I have also been getting the unmountable boot volume blue screen when trying to boot windows. Using the repair console is not working, gets stuck at around 50% with the chkdsk /r command. An earlier 250 GB hard drive was having similar problems, except when it would click, it would simply crash. I am beginning to think that this is more of a motherboard problem than simply bad luck with hard drives. I have a MSI KT4V mainboard.

Any suggestions or ideas?

A:Blank Screen on Bootup

Have you tried putting your hard drive in as a slave drive in another computer then sorting out the bootmgr from there, might do the trick.
Also when you took the cards out have you checked to see your video card is ok?
Might be something to look at if it can run in one of your other pc's to see what happens with it.
Also, if you go to the manufacturer of your motherboard and download the users manual for it, this will tell you how to access your bios and remove the password even when you don't know it.
Hope this is of use to you.
David

I am building a PC, my first, and all went well on the installation. The CPU (Intel Quad 6700), mobo (nForce 680iLT), memory (2 gig), hard drive (Hitachi SATA), and DVD were all part of a "kit" from TigerDirect.

When I turn it on, after it has been sitting for a while, it will last about 35 seconds and get to bios configuration okay, but then shuts down. If I turn it back on as soon as it shuts off, it lasts 10, 8, 7, 6 secs progressively. I then waited a minute and did it again and it lasted 22 and 9 secs in successive attempts.

Any ideas?
Thanks
 

A:Newly built PC shutting down on bootup

All fans running

Yes, your assumptions are correct and all fans are spinning fine, including the CPU fan.

What is the thermal compound?

A:HP Pavilion Laptop ez4900 bootup problem

Remove the battery and the AC adaptor. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds and release it. Reinstall the battery and the AC adaptor and see if the laptop boots. If it still does nothing, the motherboard might be blown

I am replacing Two IDE Hard drives and putting in One Sata drive now the board that i have does have Sata plugs, But when I boot th computer get the below error

VERifying DMI Pool Data

Now once i gets there is just sits there and doesnt moveat all , now I've tried resetting it and everything like that and I can't get it to go further.
 

A:Bootup Error

It cannot find the harddrive.

Confirm that one harddrive is securely connected (at motherboard and at the drive)
If IDE (ATA) confirm drive set to CS (cable select on harddrive jumper)
If Sata confirm Sata is enabled in CMOS (DEL or F2 or another key at startup, to enter CMOS)

My desktop is a Dell Dimension c and lately I couldn t start Dimesion 4600c Event Thermal Dell it The orange light on the power button is blinking and nothing happens when I press it And at times when it would power on I get a previous shutdown due to thermal event message until recently it wouldn t start anymore Most of the times it wouldn t start is probably because of the air conditioner The air blows directly to Dell Dimesion 4600c Thermal Event the computer and it gets real cold So last time when it won t start I had to use a hairdryer to heat it up or put it out in the sun But that doesn t seem to work anymore So my question is is something wrong with the fan or the power supply P s I don t know if this is the place to post this I really don t take care of my computer so let s forget about that Your suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated my location is Malaysia and the average room temperature is degrees celcius nbsp
