Preferred Solution: Arabic message at startup

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.)

A: Arabic message at startup

Hello darknight99 and welcome to Seven Forums.

My first guess would be your computer picked up some malware. Update and run a full scan with your resident antivirus and antispyware. Then run a couple of on-demand scanners (all free) like Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, SuperAntispyware, Comodo Cleaning Essentials, etc. On-demand scanners offer another layer of security because there's no such thing as an antimalware product that's 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.

I looked up the IP address showing in your screen shot. It comes back to Pakistan Telecommunication Company LTD in Punjab. Do you have any connection with that company like are they your internet provider?

A:Error Message: Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your system

During Setup, it will ask you if you need any extra drivers such as SCSI (or SATA in your case). If so, press F6. Now you are in trouble, because SATA drivers come on a floppy and new(er) Dells don't have a floppy anymore. Borrow a floppy-drive from another PC and install that in your Dell.
Setting up with the Dell disks, I'm not sure if they are RESTORE-disks or full XP-disks.
That may cause another problem.

Hi Guys,

I would like to seek help regarding my laptop (Dell Inspiron 3437). I oftenly encounter a very slow start up/booting and also there are times that shutting it down takes too long also as if it is not responding, which will result to forced shutting it. I need help in this.

I noticed that now when I start the pc,the gpu fan speed doesn't change I mean its at 100% but when I had a image on the screen at the start up,the fan speed was at 100% only for 3 sec,then it changed lets say at 50% after those 3 sec.

A:Hard Drive Startup

Hey kesler7.
Did this pc in question come with Win8 and with this disk ?
If you are familiar with accessing the BIOS, does it show that the drive is present ?
If it does show and the drive is working properly, if the drive is set as the first boot device in the Boot section of the BIOS, or maybe be set as the first boot device using an F key sequence on startup, it should recognize the drive at power up where you can start the reinstall of Win8.

Hello all,

Here you go
MB: New coming Asus Maximus VI Impact
CPU: Intel i5 4670K

PSU: Seasonic X serie 650

So the installation was not easy, but I finally managed to install all carefully. I made a super clean windows 7 ultimate 64 bit installation and installed all driver correctly.

The only problem is this: I get this annoying hard drive clicking noise from the H80i. I don't know if it is the pump or the fans or the radiator. But I am pretty sure that I comes from the cpu cooler.

So what do you think about this issue and which component could be the source of the problem? Thank you very much in advance. Regards.

Hi, I recently installed Norton 360 onto my OSwin7 Toshiba laptop andsubsequently now the computer wont start. it comes up with startup repair then says startup repair failed... is there any way to fix this issue? or get my files off the hdd onto another laptop??

A:Any help for a startup issue?

Firstly, I would never recommend Norton to anyone, its not as good as it appears - their marketing is just very good! Try starting it up in safe mode (push F8 non-stop from the moment you boot the PC and then select safe mode with the keyboard). If it starts up and you log in, open system restore (start > accessories > system tools > system restore) and restore the computer to a time before you isntalled Norton. It should help get it back up and running. If it doesn't work, I'll give you an alternative

Almost since the day we bought our laptop several years ago it's been slow to start up, but now it's worse and taking forever.

I don't know where to start to remedy the problem. Any recommendations?

Thank you!

Specs: Hp Pavillion Entertainment Laptop

A:Slow startup

First off, I suggest that you defragment your hard drive. It would also be good if you can check that you don't have unnecessary programs in your start up configuration.

To do this, type 'msconfig' (without quotation marks) in the Windows search box and then either press enter on your keyboard or double-click on the MSCONFIG program that appears in the search results.

Once the System Configuration utility is up, click on the 'startup' tab. You should see a list of services and programs that Windows loads every time you boot or restart your PC. Laptops that come with pre-installed copies of Windows usually have a tonload of unnecessary software ticked in that list. These slow your system down and are a waste of RAM and disk space. Check out this Techspot thread to learn more about this particular subject.

If it's an option, then you should also try installing more RAM into your machine.

A:Help needed to bypass the CPU fan failed error at startup

You bought the wrong type of fan. They aren't all the same. You should have bought a CPU fan but you have a case fan instead. The yellow wire goes to a sensor connection that controls the speed of the fan. The motherboard detects the missing connection and throws the error you saw. The solution is to buy the correct type of fan.

A:Dell laptop intermittent startup failure

Replace the system board battery. Disassemble and reassemble by removing the keyboard and tracking down the cables... especially the cable to the screen. Replace the screen inverter card... which is cheap and will be needed sooner or later anyway. Remove, clean cpu cooling fan, and replace. Remove and replace the heat sink if the metal of the old one is rainbow colored from excessive heat.
Track all cables and connections and connectors as you re-assemble.
If it is any good, this extra work, which may take four hours (after the ordered parts come in) and you will know if you are going to have a good experience or if you have wasted your time... and your friend's time.

Windows 7 (64bit) used to load the Network "dialer" (I have DSL) at bootup or whenever a connection was not present, but a few days ago, it suddenly stopped. I must now start my Internet connection manually via a shortcut on the desktop.

I don't prompt for a password, but I don't want my PC connecting w/o me for security reasons (eg: catching viruses/adware that try connect to the Net to upload my info or send Spam.) This is how I've connected since Win98.

I thought maybe I had disabled something necessary from "msconfig", but I put everything back and it still doesn't work.

I've also tried putting the shortcut in my Startup folder, but Windows just ignores it. (???)

Note the solution presented in the previous thread is for a different make of laptop.

Problem: Wirless disabled by default on start up and resume.

I am having the same problem with my windows 7 reinstall of my SYX160001. Have tried similar remidies... ie power management, driver updates, enabling netowrk discovery, etc.

Any idea on how to overcome this nusiance of needing to turn on the wireless

A:Atheros AR9285 wireless disabled by default at startup

SOLUTION! (at least for me on my laptop)

I just had this problem when I reinstalled the OS from the OEM disc (not the factory install disc) I figured the OEM disc had a driver conflict. But I incorrectly pointed the finger at the wirless lan driver.

The HOT KEY strip (the one with the buttons that turn white when you touch them just above the keyboard) on my laptop also controls the Wi-Fi Radio on/off button. This was the problem. You need the origional driver for that strip, even if your volume on the strip is working.

Background. Think of your wireless lan as two seperate devices... the radio is compared to the cord of an ethernet connection. The wireless lan card is the ethernet card. When you think about it as one device it is easy to see why so many people assume the problem is with the wireless lan card. But the important part is that a laptop usually devides the two up to save power. Controlling the radio from a button on the keyboard (or a function key) (mine is FN +F2) is another reason to think of the two as seperate items.

Before reaching this conclusion I tried using "allow the computer to turn this device off to save power" I also had tried Hi performance modes and other wireless radio from the control pannel in both plug-in and battery modes. I tried the turn wireless netork on and off as well. There were plenty of reasons to think this was going to fix the problem.

So update your HOTkey strip driver... see if that doesnt fix your problem.

Hi, Just installed new 500gig Seagate sata hdd on computer, everything good. connected old 250 gig Seagate, now on startup, xp goes to chkdsk on F: and starts deleting the the files I want to keep. How can I set up the 2nd hdd as storage only?

Thanks in advance.

A:XP deleting files from second SATA HDD on startup

here is what i think it might be but u might wanna post a screen shot of the process using ur camera or cellphone camera to be sure what we're dealing with,
it might be re arranging files. HDD sorts file differently than u might think "i put my games in a folder then they're together physically" not true ur games folder could be scattered around the HDD's media and linked so u see them in the same place during a sudden shutdown "power out shutdown or restart using ur power\reset buttons" some files might be orphaned "lost its link to the others" so u dont see it in its place in that case chkdsk seeks those orphan files and reconnects them to their proper places so u when u open ur games folder u see all ur games there or some files wasnt saved properly so they get lost if ur pc suddenly shuts down and they remain as pieces they case some issues so chkdsk has to get rid of them.

I am getting an error message saying "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable." I have run CHKDSK /r to try and repair any errors on the drive; cmd showed a report stating chkdsk has finished. But when I try to access the drive I still receive the same error report. Is there anything anyone out there can suggest that could help me with this problem?! Thank you so much in advance for you help!

Im having trouble with my newly built computer freezing at random points during my startup and if it does boot up all the way it always freezes on the "Shutting Down" screen. Im running Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) and have reinstalled it two times.
Here is what I currently have in it:

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
500W Power supply

A:Freshly built computer freezes at random points during startup

Sounds like there could be an issue with your BIOS... either needs to be flashed to a newer version to fully support the X6 processor or the settings just need to be tweaked. Make sure your memory is running in accordance to factory spec and that your voltages for both CPU and RAM is within acceptable range.

Sounds like your hard drive has failed to me.
You need to look in the BIOS to see if it is detected.
With older Sony models, you pressed F1 as the laptop was powering up.

When i boot up my Dell Inspiron 1545 there are two error messages one saying:

Error loading C:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\iwufuloru.dll
The specified module could not be found


Error Loading C:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\wsLeri.dll
The specified module could not be found

I looked for it through Windows Explorer but there is nothing there. Then in command prompt i tried deleting it, it said the file could not be found.

It isn't causing any defect tot the computer but it is annoying.

A:Error loading files at startup of Dell Inspiron 1545

I don't believe either is a legitmate file. Update you virus scan and run a full scan of C:\. If that doesn't find anything then update Malwarebytes and run a full scan. If you don't have malwarebytes you can get it at:
If you find something and cannot get rid of it, take this to the forum at:

It may also be remnants of some program you removed, but I don't think so.

I'm working as a student assistant at my university. The computer that I use at the desk there is a Dell GX 280. When I start the computer, the monitor works fine until I reach the login screen with the "Press Ctrl+Alt+Dlt" box, at which point the monitor goes black for a second, then returns, then goes black and so on. The monitor power button remains green throughout the hissy fit. This can last anywhere between five and ten minutes, regardless of if I log on or not.

Considering that the computer belongs to the university, I can't take it apart and look around inside. Despite this, if the problem most likely involves hardware, I can notify someone to (hopefully) replace it. What do you all think?

"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

have you tried putting the hdd and recovery disc together? before that you need to change the boot priority so the CD load first.

Go to F2 and boot settings priority, move the DVD drive up to the first one. Alternatively you can press F12 and choose to boot from CD which is your recovery disc.

Wow thats alot of system stats, but I'm gonna go for the obvious unfortunately, am I right in saying that Sims 2 is for an older operating system than Windows 7? if so, try compatability mode. I had a similar problem with an older version of a codec being needed, yet I had a newer one, and it wouldnt run the game. As soon as I ticked compatability mode and selected the OS the game was meant for, the games run perfectly.

The last week my monitor has been hissing and has now started to remain black after startup or coming out of sleep. I have to unplug and replug the VGA cord a few times before the screen comes back on. It tries to come on on startup but all you hear is this loading hiss and a quick flash of screen. After I get it working it works fine and will even come back on if I play with the on off button. I have already replaced the VGA cord with a new one so that's not the issue.

Ok, so here is the deal.
I'm working with a HP LaserJet 5Si printer from 1995 and it's having some issues.
I'm getting a message that reads "Device Error 66.0.23, cycle power" I found information about it on the HP site and followed the instructions 100%. It worked for a while, and then 10 minutes later it had the same error.
Also I have another one that keeps jamming, but only from tray 3. Total it has 4 trays due to the fact that it's on top of a paper drawer use to hold a ream or two of paper.
Any suggestions on what to do with either of these....priceless machines.
And throwing them out is out of the question as with purchasing a new printer any time soon.

The "Device Error 66.0.23, cycle power" could indicate a bad internal PC board connection or a failing logic board. The tray 3 paper jam, could be a misaligned tray sensor or dirty feed mechanism

Are you able to read anything on the drive? Have you tried running checkdisk or scandisk in repair mode on the drive?

I don't know if I have the answer but start by giving the specifics of your system. What CPU, power supply, motherboard, RAM, etc do you have?

I was using my computer and it rebooted (I didn't reboot it) and when it came back on, I got this message:

"Invalid system disk, replace the disk and then press any key."

I have a lot of data on the disk and do not want to lose it. It is a SATA hard drive 500 GB and I am using Windows 7 Ultimate as my operating system. One other thing, prior to my system crashing, Windows 7 had been doing an update in the background as I was working on a Word file and printing on some DVD's with my printer.

any help or advice would be appreciated.

A:Invalid system disk error message using Windows 7 Ultimate

Make sure you don't have any external drives plugged in and make sure you're booting from the correct drive if there's more than one installed.

Put the drive into another machine and do a backup of your files. You should have everything backed up on a regular basis, when things like this happen you'll wish you had one.

After you're all backed up, try running check disk on the drive using the Windows recovery console.

Hey guys,

I've had my ASUS G50V for about a year now, and I recently spilled a gracious amount of water right into the keyboard.

Now, whenever I press the power button, the LED display lights up, but then it immediately shuts down.

Any suggestions to what could possibly be the issue? Or is it un-fixable?

Any answers, helpful or not, would be amazing.

Thanks guys,

This all started happening after recieveing a DOA Corsair HX650W Modular PSU. (was only puttin out 10.6V on the +12V Rail.)

Recently one of our older computers was running out of hard drive space. To add more hard drive space i took another hard drive to use as a secondary drive. i connected the secondary drive and tried to rebood. I was not happy to see that the computer was not recognizing either hard drives. I tried changing the jumper around or whatever and it still wasn't working properly. I decided to abort and remove the secondary hard drive. It didn't recognized that hard drive either. I had no idea what to do. I took a hard drive out of my pesonal computer and put it in. It didn't recognize it either. I put the hard drive back into my personal computer and it did the same thing!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

A:Hard drive(s) not recognized in startup, help!

You can't just "whatever" the jumpers.
Put the original drive back in with the original jumper setting. If you tell us more about the hardware we might be able to set this up properly.

Hi I have a computer that was working perfectly and after using compressed air it won t give a signal to the monitor the keyboard doesn t light beep monitor signal, startup on or no keyboard No up I m assuming no power to the mouse No monitor or keyboard signal, no beep on startup either and there is no beep when I start it No monitor or keyboard signal, no beep on startup Internet cable lights up when I connect it and the speakers make a quot pop quot noise like its receiving signal fromt the sound card I tested the monitor RAM and graphics card on another computer and they seem fine Fans are running okay and I removed the little circular battery from the mother board for half an hour to drain it but still nothing Does this sound like a motherboard problem I have a K N platinum and if you suggest it is this can you recommend a new motherboard as this doesn t seem to be easy to come by anymore Hopefully its not the hard drive Thank you for checking this one out and PS - baby steps are appreciated nbsp

A:No monitor or keyboard signal, no beep on startup

Compressed air, not treated by difluoroethane gas or other static electricity preventative, is a very dangerous destroyer of computers... We have seen at least 12 computers destroyed by Compressed Air... one I did myself in my learning days...
Since then, we have run a lot of tests with canned air... All that are not treated are dangerous. All that come from a bench tank are just about guaranteed to destroy a computer system board, CPU, or other critical components...
And the static electricity can flow through several components before it finds a way to ground.

Okay, so my friend has a prepaid cellphone from Virgin Mobile.

Sometimes we'll be having a conversation, and then something happens with the phone service or whatever, and I get the same text message maybe 20 times over the course of 5 hours or so, and during that time she can't receive any texts from me.

Then after a while, it goes back to normal, and her phone gets a flood of texts that I sent over the past few hours.
What the heck is going on?
Why does this happen?
Can we do anything to fix it?

I'm not so sure how cellphone SMS messages work exactly, so I would love some more information.
Is anyone else having this problem or had this problem in the past?

How old is the laptop?
I would remove the battery. Don't assume the LCD is bad just because you can't see anything on the screen. It pays to do a little troubleshooting. If the screen is cracked, has annoying dead pixels or a complete row or column is out (IC driver failure), it's time to replace the LCD. On the other hand, if the laptop screen is totally dead, it's more likely the video integrated on the motherboard, so at least test the laptop with an external monitor before proceeding.

Just built a new rig about a week ago. Unfortunately at first power up I got a spark and a popping noise. Immediately shut down the PC and checked all the connections and only thing I could see that may have caused it were the unused plugs on the PSU being too close to the PSU. I moved them further away from the PSU and wire tied them down and started up again. PC started up fine and was able to load the OS and all the other goodies. The one thing that sounded different was at start up there was a ticking noise coming from the PC that sounds like it comes from the PSU and this noise does go away as it warms up. PC seems to be running perfectly but would like opinions as to what this may be.

A:Ticking noise at startup

My PC Had That too!

well, from what i've noticed, its the fan. the fan's motor is choppy and "kicks" so thats the ticking noise. My laptop had a ticking noise from the fan after I dropped it once.

My Sony VGC RB38G runs Windows Media Center 2005 Xp, the hdd is orginal still, and is fuctioning yet and is only 250GB. I bought a 500GB Seagate Barracuda and used the Seatools to Clone, yet it will not start. I can see it in My Computer as drive F and I can see in the BIOS.

Any help here???

A:Cloning a hdd in XP new drive gets message Missing Operating System

So you cloned the 250GB to 500GB. So does the 500GB have XP on it or are you just using it as a additional storage. You might want to do that. Leave the 250GB as the Primary C: then have the 500GB as archive media storage. There you can have all your music, pictures, music for Media Center 2005. This way you don't have to clone the HDD.

C: 250GB (OS/Programs/MCE)
D: 500GB (Media)

I really hope someone can help me with this. My monitor is displaying a no signal message at startup, not even showing the windows boot screen. However, I plugged the cable into the on board graphics card and it works fine, it's only when I try it on my other card that there's a problem. I've cleaned and reseated the card, but no joy.

This is a completely out of the blue problem. It was working fine last night, tried to turn it on this morning, and this happened. Any advice? Or do I just have to get a new graphics card?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Recently my laptop would not turn on properly...

I turned on the switch and the screen would stay pitch black, no glow or any light would come out of it...At first I thought that the screen is busted so I connected the laptop to my desktop monitor through VGA...still nothing.

The problem is that besides the screen does not display turns itself back off within 30 seconds...

I have also tried testing the battery pack/adapter...both seems to be working...

my conclusion is either the motherboard is damaged or the power source is dead...

since I am rather new at IT i would like to know what else could be causing my laptop from turning on properly

thank you in advance

A:Laptop won't startup properly

Power Issues
Run the unit without the battery and connect it to AC power source. If it still doesn't turn on then you have a faulty power connector or power module on the MOBO (motherboard)

Screen Problems
Look at your [Fn] (function buttons) one of them has a picture of your monitor. [ ] You press the [Fn] and the picture above the Function Num keys. Most are [Fn] [F5] you would press them at the same time then press the [F5] 1, 2, 3 while holding down on [Fn]. If this still doesn't do anything. Then connect VGA monitor or HDTV with VGA (PC connection) to your laptop to see if you can still view anything. If not then, the LCD panel needs to be replaced.

Hello ? Techspot,

4 days ago, I bought "Seagate Barracuda, 500GB, 7200RPM"
I disconnected my old hard drive and place New Hard Drive inside the case and connect to Raid 3 in my P5B Deluxe. Next I re-connected everything and turn on the computer.

A few min of starting, the screen say that I have "Primary IDE Hard Drive Failure" and want me to press "F1" key and I did. I install my windows. After that computer restart as normal, but the screen tell me the same question "Primary IDE Hard Drive Failure" and want me to press "F1" key"

Next it will start windows normaly. Whenever, I turn on the computer, it will ask the same things over and over again.

I want to know what is the best solution.

Call or email Seagate tech support. They usually have a new hard drive on its way to you within four hours, and await the arrival of the bad one to deal with any costs.
When you call them, you will need the drive or a copy of the hard drive label in your hands.
You can find additional information at on how to proceed.
In some cases, if you got a "deal" you may have to deal with the Vender from whom you got the "deal."
