Preferred Solution: what is matter

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.)

A: what is matter

we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.

Here is the problem I just recently was given a laptop. I was told that it was hooked up to a tv with HDMI but, there was sound on the laptop. I am running Windows 7 Premium HP Pavilion g7-1318dx Notebook PC
Serial Number: 6CF2085XDS Product Number: A7A43UAR . I have no sound with just notebook speakers. I have went to the HP driver download site and tried to download the audio drivers. I receive a warning " The Hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package. Install will now abort." There are 3 Audio downloads on the Hp website none work. The speaker Icon down by the clock with a red X on it when you do a mouse roll over it says no speakers or headphones are plugged in. I have tried headphones still no sound. I have also tried to the windows trouble shooter and it says it detects no problems. Play back devices is only showing Digital Audio (HDMI) High definition Audio device not plugged in. Recording says there are no audio devises are installed in. I have tried everything any help would be appreciated.
 

A:No sound no matter what

I think that you need an extra lead because HDMI gives picture only. The lead I have has a mini stereo jackplug at one end which goes into the computer's headphones socket and two phono plugs (white and yellow) at the other to plug into the TV's audio input at the back. You should then be able to work out how to set up the sound via Control Panel.

I had an EVGA 780TI working great. My 980 arrived so I swapped. All I got was a black screen. After taking the card out and putting it back in a few times nothing changed. Giving up I put my 780ti back in and now that just gives me a black screen too.

Any ideas?
Thanks

Edit: My mobo gives the code A0 which is normal so I don't think it detected anything was wrong.
 

A:Just bought a 980, now all I get is a black screen no matter what GPU I use

If your not getting an error code its probably booting up normally. It maybe defaulting to the integrated card for some reason so I would try plugging onto the on board video when booting to see what happens.

If that is the case you will just have to go into the bios and change your default video card to the PCIE.

Hello,

i understand how to set up dual channels with matching pairs - that is not my question. What i can't find the answer for is this:

If i have a matching pair of 512 = 1g
and a matching pair of 1g = 2g,..

Does it make a difference which pair is in which channel? Should i have 2g in channel 1 and 1g in channel 2, or would this make no difference?

thank you!!

A:Dual-channel RAM -- more in channel 1 or 2? Does it matter?

You can run different stick of RAM at the same time in Dual channel asynchronous, but I think they'll operate at single channel speeds.
If you decide to run in asynchronous mode, I think that it doesn't matter.

OK! I am a noob at this!
I am running XP Pro 32-bit. I want to replace the Video Card. Nothing great or expensive...just a decent one. It for a friend (senior, that is why XP). I just got him a Dell Vostro 200 slim, added a 1TB HD and installed all drivers and XP. Please let me know 3 things:

1. Does ddr2 or ddr3 matter on the video card..is one better to run on XP
2. 64-bit or 32-bit. I assume 64 will run on 32-bit XP
3. Any suggestions on the card or where to buy (PCI Express 2.0X16)
Thanks! Ynot
 

A:Does it matter if you use a DDR3 or DDR2 video card?

The only thing you need to know about buying a single graphics card:

Do I have a large enough power supply for this card?
Do I have the appropriate card slot for this card?
If the card is 2 (or 3) card slots wide do I have room in my case?
What monitor cable connector will I be using?

Everything else may be important for choosing the card you want but not needed to get the card working.

1) Graphics card memory type is irrelevant as far as the operating system is concerned.
2) I'm not sure why you are asking the second question.
3) We need to know what you will be using the card for. (A slim form factor doesn't give much options)

Hello there I hope I am posting in the right place First off the spec of my laptop AMD Athlon tm II P Dual-Core Processor GHz GB RAM ATI Mobility Radeon HD I run Windows -bit The problem is that I cant seem to run games without getting lag For instance Dragon Age- the only requirement that my laptop might not meet is the processor dual core minimum however I can even top that I can make graphics the best quality or make it the worst it lags almost the same Oblivion that thing requires a Pentium yet I still get lag again the same situation where I can put the best or the worst graphics out? lag is there what, way no matter no Constant on The lag that I am talking about is not terrible for instance the games run at around or more FPS judging by the eye and every once in a while drops to around It is not much but definitely makes the playing experience much less enjoyable I do turn off all of the background programs I even use this little program game booster The hard drive is not crammed to the top I even separated the drive to a few parts for games and for Windows So yea any tips Or am i doomed to play in this ridiculous situation where no matter what Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out? graphic settings you put on you still get lag PS When games are turned on the ventilator blows out quite hot air nbsp

A:Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out?

How big is the hard drive? How big are the partitions? When you partition a hard drive, you waste a lot of space and slow down its data access. Something you never want to do with a laptop

Id use 124GB SSD to load my OS, Video Editing Programs and other main programs that you have on. Keep all the data such as music, pictures, videos on a normal HDD.

You mean if the program is on the SSD with the OS? Id guess so since it will write the data faster, but I am not expert and on top of that I don't have a SSD. But also a GOOD CPU will play a good roll in that.

Do Audio Video Cables Quality matter much?

for example with Coax i know the gold connectors worked better then silver connectors. So my question is do the cables red yellow and white connectors have high and low quality cables or they all the same. If they have high quality cables what are the names of them and where can i find them.
 

A:Do Audio Video Cables quality matter much?

Red,White audio RCA are much the same.
It's haveing and useing a SVHS video cable instead of Yellow RCA.
If your TV has it for VCR's etc.that have it out.

As you can see from my post just below this one my computer is fried. My roomate has a Intel computer and I was wondering if i can take the RAM from my AMD system and put it into his computer. Or if this will cause a conflict with hardware.
 

A:Does Intel or AMD matter when installing RAM

No there is really no such thing as Intel ram and AMD ram. It depends on if the two computers use the same memory type. A new computer uses DDR2 while an older computer would use DDR1 and an even older computer would use SDRAM. A good ram dimm would probably be interchangeable between a new Intel computer and a new AMD computer. A computer's motherboard must be able to accommodate the ram's type, speed and voltage specifications to be able to work in that motherboard.

I ran across a window that (to me) look like an over-clocking slide for my graphics card so I increased by one notch. Ever since then I have had the problem of my PC just rebooting when it feels like it, it seems to me. I have never been able to find that same window again. My Graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 4000, bios version 4.18.20.42.61. HELLLLP!!
 

A:My pc intermitantley reboots, load doesn't seem to matter.

it sounds like the card is getting too hot so it restarts the pc. turn the overclocking settings back to how they were and it should be ok if you really want to overclock then get an aftermarket cooler e.g. a zalman heatsink, if they still make ones that fit your card

i believe my mobo only accepts single channel memory, i tried to upgrade my system with dual channel, and it reboots constantly. please advice!!!!!
 

A:single or dual channel memory does it matter?

There is no such thing.....

The memory DIMMs are neither single or dual channel, it's the motherboard that determines how the RAM is accessed. Did you match exactly the specifications of the original RAM when you upgraded?
Please follow this link to Tedster's guide for upgrading RAM: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic47210.html

When RAM is sold as "dual channel" it simply means that there are two DIMMS (each with half the amount of the upgrade value), one for each channel of a dual channel motherboard.

I'm at my wits end - it didn't take long!

Fixing up an old Intel 845EPT2 for a neighbor. I did a Reinstall of XP, installed all Drivers straight off the Intel Website, and no matter what, there's no Audio.

"No Device Installed" even though the Soundmax appears in System / Devices.

I have double checked Audio is enabled in the BIOS.

I even threw in an old Soundblaster Live!, turned off Audio in the BIOS, installed Drivers and it did the same thing.

I'm running an SFC / SCANNOW .

The weird thing is that it had Audio before {along with a million viruses, which is why I re-installed}

Any ideas, except a litre of Petrol and a Lighter?
 

A:Can't get Audio no matter what

uninstall all your drivers in device manager, go to your C drive and program files, make sure all files related to the drivers, software is deleted, also, do a add remove any software that may use those same sound drivers that you previously uninstalled. turn off machine, take your card out, if you're using onboard, disable in bios, start up, let windows load, if its a sound card installed in a pci slot a "new hardware" window should pop up, install drivers through that dialog box. If its an onboard sound device just simple restart after windows has started up and recognized no sound devices or drivers installed, go back to bios, enable sound, start up, reinstall drivers and software....I hope this helps as I just had this problem last night and had to figure out how to fix it, GL

Hi I have matter no loud CPU what Fan a custom computer I built and I m having real problems with how loud it had gotten Recently my friend gave me his old processor P GHz with HT and its running CPU Fan loud no matter what on my new mother board ASUS P CPU Fan loud no matter what NSLI and it has been running so loud that it keeps me up I have to open my window to let in degree air to slow the fan down There was one fan already in the case that was sucking air out on the panel side and i recently purchased another one to put in the back near the cpu to blow air in and it made about Zero difference and its putting a good amount of air in My heat sink is just a intel that came with the CPU The fan speeds run as follows at rpm when the CPU is C This is relatively quiet but still can easily tell that the computer is running but this is with the window open haha once i close the window the temp is still at C but it will run at rmp- rmp which is enough to wake me up note these temps are mostly unaffected by cpu usage when i run transcode for my converts an avi file into wmv as fast possible to play through media center If the window is open no sound and the cpu is under rather a heavy load but in the same respect if the window is closed and I m not even using my computer its like a highway in my room The Computer itself isn t in a confined area either it is out in the open in a place where air circulates easily So my though that was maybe i need to mess with the settings in BIOS since i have never really touched them in new computer Any suggestions on what to do whether it is through the BIOS or just how I placed the fans in the case thankyou nbsp

A:CPU Fan loud no matter what

You may be able to change the thresholds for temperature in the bios on whether it kicks the fan into high speed or not.

I'd also suggest taking that fan you put in the back of the case and reverse it so it blows air out, thats traditionally how its done, and makes more sense with the air dynamics inside a case. Fans on the side panels or the front typically blow air into the case, so I'd suggest doing that as well.

You can pull the heatsink off the processor (with the comp shut down of course) and clean it off with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and reapply some thermal paste. Artic Silver seems to be the consensus for doing that, but you can also get away with the thermal paste Radio Shack sells if you must.

A final thing you could do is get an aftermarket heatsink and fan that will run quieter and cool better.

In the first place i thought it was somethign wrong with a softaware...so i started to unistall all programs i have one by one to see the performance...nothing happend.
I have even changed RAM..nothing happend.SO finally thought that maybe it was the HDD.

What else can be wrong???

Hi all,

Please bear with me, as I'm very much a newbie. I'm looking at the following two GeForce 6600GT AGP video cards:

GIGABYTE GV-N66T128VP Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 VIVO AGP 4X/8X Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814125179

eVGA 128-A8-N350 Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130220

Is brand a considerable factor to consider? Is the difference in performance truly worth $45? (I actually found the Gigabyte card at zipzoomfly.com for $10 less, but that's still a notable gap in price.) I noticed a Sapphire Radeon x800GT 256MB card on newegg for only a few dollars more, so is that perhaps the best course?

I would greatly appreciate any insight into the differences. Thank you very much for your time and patience.
 

A:Does brand difference matter with GeForce 6600GT cards?

the gigabyte u listed from newegg has passive cooling thats why its more expensive. I havent had any experience with Gigabyte. but i have with eVGA and i can say they r a good brand. give u the chance to upgrade ur card too while paying only the difference.

what u should look for are warranties and google aroudn to see how well the manufactures handle their customers. I believe eVGA now gives their video cards lifetime warranty and they have good tech supoprt and customer service according to experience.

however be warned, their video cards are pretty loud (especially the 6600GT)
If ur planning to up the stock cooling, then its no matter.

I was reading in a Pc Gamer mag. and one of thier suggestions (for better gaming performance) was to turn the Grafic apature size to 1/2 your video card ram meaning, if you have lets say a 256mb card to set the apature size to 128mb in the bios? They didn't give a reason for this, can anyone tell me why I would want to do this? And would it make that big of diffrence? My first impression was that it had something to do with Virtual memory tapping, but i'm a *****...LOL can someone please enlighten me?? Oh I know there was alot of discussion on hyperthreading but would I be smart to turn it off as well when gaming?

Thx friends, Power
 

A:Apature size, does it matter that much?

Apperture size is the amount of system that you're willing to let the VGA card use for AGP texturing.

Now it's quite hard to fine a single answer on that matter. Some say it should half the size of your system memory, some say it should be equal to or half the VGA memory, some say Saturn needs to be aligned with Jupiter for it to work, etc.

If your VGA card has a lot of onboard Ram, you're not likely to be very affected by AGP apperture. Set it to something not too small, & it should not be more then half your system memory, so if you have 512 mb of Ram, set it to 256 max ( I believe the max setting for AGP apperture is 256 mb anyways ).

Having seen the required specs for half life 2, I've decided to upgrade my current ram and purchase an AMD 2500 processor - my current system is a s follows, AMD 1700, 512 DDR ram (generic), softmodded radeon 9500 128 np, W2000k and a 40 gig HD, not top notch kit but enough to play any current game at optimal configuration.
My question is this, my current 2100, 266mhz generic ddr ram works pretty much adequatly and has given me no cause for complaint but on checking prices, find that higher specc'd ram is'nt as expensive as I'd assumed - would purchasing 333mhz or 400mhz ram offer significant increase in performance or are these specs only relevant to hard core modders?
 

A:Does make matter?

333Mhz to 400Mhz, not much.

So long story short I woke up one morning to find that my computer s explorer exe file would not open at all This problem has been going on for well over Explorer.exe I what not start will do no matter a month and I ve been dealing with it by running things through task manager At this point I ve absolutely had it and I need to get this fixed and I d hope to resolve it without having to re-install windows There were no hardware changes just newly installed games from Steam and that s it All I use this computer for is homework and gaming every now and then Explorer exe when started manually will only open in task manager for a moment and then slip away into the darkness once again I get no error messages at all All I get when I boot up my computer is a black screen no task bar and just my cursor Below I have listed everything I have tried so Explorer.exe will not start no matter what I do far and nothing has even brought me close to a solution I m hoping someone can help me because I ve spent countless hours searching the internet and trying new solutions and I m almost giving up hope Please for the love of all that is sane in this world ing help me This is on Windows on an Asus G laptop Interventions so far Starting manually through task manager Starting in safe mode Numerous malware virus scans TDSSKiller CCleaner Start up repair System restores Registry scans Fresh explorer exe Screaming and yelling loudly nbsp

A:Explorer.exe will not start no matter what I do

When I get to the screaming part, I usually create a new user ( a "trick" I discovered when I was fiddling around with XP when it came out ). Can you try that and write back what happens ?

I'm planning installing Windows XP on a Mac running virtual box and was wondering if it makes a difference between 32 bit and 64 bit edition? If both can run fine I guess I'd go with 64 bit since it's faster.
 

A:In Virtual Box does it 32bit/64bit matter?

Whether or not you can run 64bit guests depends on whether you're CPU has the VT-x extension flag on the CPU.

If it doesn't, you will be unable to run 64bit guests, regardless of whether the host (e.g. OS X) is 64bit or not.

I would recommend you stick to 32 bit, you really don't need the extra performance, nor will you see it when running an OS virtually as a guest within a host OS.

Hi,
I have a major problem where my DVD drive shows up as RECOVERY D:/
When I explore it, it has some padlock icon that opens in shitty internet explorer some POS pcangel thing.
I don't know how long this problem has been around, I haven't used the DVD drive in a while.
I got the hard drive from a friend, but it came clean, as they removed all their crap.
I never inserted any recovery CD, especially not anything with PCangel.

The problem hasn't persisted in linux in the past, though my Linux hard drive isn't currently in this computer.

The DVD drive has never had any problems, it is fairly new.

Can anyone help me fix this problem?
 

A:DVD drive shows up as RECOVERY D:/ no matter what I put in

Try uninstalling the driver in device manager, the restart windows. windows will reinstall the drivers at startup.

Seeing that this is your first post, I will say "welcome to TechSpot"!

Next, I know this has you a bit miffed, I've been down your road of computer frustration at one time or another, but your going to have to give us a little bit more information.

How about a small list of all your components?
What type of case your trying to install of this in?
What is your power supply, and what is it's rating?
What Operating System are you using here?

Maybe a slight "step by step" of what you did prior to uninstalling the I.D.E. DVD drive, through that, to installing the SATA DVD drive. If your suspicions are true, and you think that you missed something minor, doing a small 'step by step" thing sometimes takes care of these sort of thing.

So please get back to us, we are here to help!

Hello noblehat11 I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.I would like you to run this program for me.Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.Press Scan button.It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.Gringo

Looking at other posts it was recommended to install Hard Disk Sentinel.
 
Performance was 100% Excellent
Health 68% Good
Temperature 43 Degrees Celsius
 
 
Results:
The drive found 2 bad sectors during its self test.
Problems occurred during the spin up of the disk 4 times. This can be caused by the disk itself or huge power load (weak power supply).
There are 2 weak sectors found on the disk surface. They may be remapped any time in the later use of the disk.
8505 errors occured during data transfer. This may indicate problem of the device or with data/power cables. It is recommended to examine and replace the cables if possible.
At this point, warranty replacement of the disk is not yet possible, only if the health drops further.
It is recommended to examine the log of the disk regularly. All new problems found will be logged there.
It is recommended to continuously monitor the hard disk status.

I'm using a DELL Inspiron 1525 with Win Vista.  When I turn it on it goes to the black and white screen where it tells me there was an error and gives me options to restart on safe mode, restart windows, normally, etc.  No matter which option I choose ultimately it just ends back at that screening again after attempting to go through the process.  It's as though I'm constantly turning my computer on and off and on and off. 
 
I tried putting in the windows disc that came with the laptop but nothing happened that was any different.  I tried a different Windows disc and still nothing.  Starting in any kind of mode, advanced or otherwise, does nothing.  I'm not concerned about losing information on this computer.  Formatting/reinstalling is fine with me but it won't let me get that far.  Thank you ahead of time for your help!

A:No matter what, laptop won't stop restarting!

You may need to enter the BIOS and change the boot order so that the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device and the hdd the second.  Try this and let us know how it goes.

A:Search is broken no matter what I do.

Hello, and Welcome
 
When my XP search broke, I had to register the the following files. It worked for me and hope it works for you.
 
In an admin account click the Run button and type

regsvr32 jscript.dll     click okay twice
Then do the same for the following file

regsvr32 vbscript.dll

You may need to reboot.
 
If that does not work then register the following file also

regsvr32 urlmon.dll

Hi guys,
I know there maybe already a topic here of this problem but believe me i have done everything on the internet to try to copy the Desktop folder to backup ... but it always says Access is denied
 
most of the folders were hidden as system files - that I fixed
All titles files and folder are green in color
 
here are the things I tried - XP sp3
Tried to take ownership - which i think i succeeded
give permission
Ran combo fix
tried to decrypt - access is denied
Run scandisk
Took out HDD and connected to windows 7 PC - did the same things still failed
no matter what I do The Folder just doesnt copy
Access is denied !!
any solutions ?!

A:Cant Copy a folder no matter what !

The green color indicates that the folders are encrypted....without the proper key, the files cannot be accessed.
 
The question I have is how did the files become encrypted?
 
If encryption is the result of malware, you should initiate a new topic, following Steps 6-8 of Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html and submit the requested DDS log, along with your ComboFix log, in the forum containing the Preparation Guide.  In your new topic, please provide all pertinent details leading up to evidence/notification of the files being encrypted.
 
Once that is done, this topic will be closed and your new topic should be pursued to conclusion.
 
Thanks for understanding .

Hi Rian,

Welcome to the 10forums.

The 0x116 is graphics related, meaning
graphics drivers,graphics card,improper seating,dust,power problem,graphics related software (software for settings or something)
could cause problems or have influence in the problem

Please uninstall everything of Intel graphics using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Intel. Be sure to ONLY install the drivers using custom/advanced options.

I installed Windows 10 in a VMware VM. This was Build 1151 which took my Windows 8.1 and finished installed without incident. For some reason it did not activate online. However I got the Insider Fast Track Builds OK and it upgraded to Tech Preview Edition 11082. Does it even matter that Windows is not activated in this scenario? Is there any registry hack to remove the notification? It only cosmetic it seems so no big deal but still ..

A:Windows 10 Insider Preview is not activated - does it matter?

Look at slmgr /xpr



Either you are activated or you aren't. It has nothing to do with insider build versions, Microsoft accounts or anything else.

All insider builds have watermarks (and always have) - that is normal.

Ever since i downloaded windows 10 my lenovo idea pad will go to sleep after only 3 minutes of inactivity. Iv'e gone into the setting and changed it to what I want but no matter what I do it it stays the same. It's extremely frustrating could anyone please help.

A:Windows 10 sleeps after 3 minutes, no matter what.

Probably related to settings prior to upgrade. Do you recall the settings on your previous system? I have a similar problem with one laptop in relation to telling it never to ask for a password after it sleeps and every time it sleeps it wants a password! I will eventually check registry and see what's up!

I was working on my computer earlier today and suddenly found that I couldnt interact with any of my programs. I could click on them in the Taskbar and they would come up, but when I tried to click on anything within the programs they would act as if I had a different program selected. I saved my work and restarted my computer.

Now every time I try to start my computer, I get to a loooooong "Starting Windows" screen, and if I sit through it (5-10 minutes) I get to a black screen with a cursor where I can't do anything. Startup Repair doesn't work. Safe mode doesn't work. Low resolution mode doesn't work. Taking out the battery and putting it back doesn't work. I'm running out of options. Help???

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 running Windows 7.

The HDD may be corrupted or failing. Do you have a Windows disc?
You can download the ISO image for Seatools, and burn the image to CD using IMGBurn or to USB Flash with SeaFlash, all available in my signature. Boot off of the newly created media and run the Short and Long Diagnostic tests. If either test fails, the HDD needs to be replaced.

Hello All

I have a Dell E5410 Latitude and had 5 win7 installations earlier.

Later, only 2 installs behaved as windows (on rest, windows refused to accept as a valid OS).

I removed data and formatted the disk using linux. Later installed Windows 7 and it works good still.

Problem is, when I install another win7 in a different partition (Primary), it installs fully. But on rebooting goes to the Startup Repair loop.

Tried almost 11 times, then deleted partitions, resized them and again tried installing.

******
In earlier installs I found windows update did download, while restarting installed upto 30% and then failed to boot.

In the last install, I turned off the Automatic Update from control panel and from services also. 2-3 times it rebooted well, but when tried this morning, again the same startup problem.

What should I suspect and how to go about it? Any ideas? Thanks

Hi everyone!
Hardware: laptop Sony VAIO VGN-NR11S/S
OS: MS Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP3, 2002

Today my XP began to freeze several times, no matter the kind of task I do: writing, browsing, installing... THis happens only in XP since I went to Ubuntu and didn't have any problem there, especially when updating files and other thingies. The laptop usually makes the same loading sound, like a Morse code (!): several dots, one dash, when it freezes. The only thing I can do is restarting via button.

Any suggestion? Is it the battery? XP? Other? My laptop is almost 5 years old but I want to think it's not a matter of old age.

Thank you :)

A:computer wont boot, no matter what!

Hello ndru

It seems that either the virus destroyed system files or you deleted them along with the virus.

What is the error message you are getting?
Are you told there are missing files?


Quote:




my dad and i tried to repair windows with the CD




You have to change the boot up order in the BIOS to make the CD drive first to boot.

Try the following and see what happens
Configure your PC to boot from CD if it isn't already set up that way. You may need to enter the BIOS to configure the PC to boot from the CD.
Set the boot order to
Floppy (if present)
CDROM
Hard Disk
SAVE and EXIT

Start your PC with the XP Setup CD in the drive. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD..." prompt, do so and let the CD-based boot process begin.

When the Recovery Console option is offered ("Press R to start the Recovery Console"), do so. You may be asked which Windows installation to enter, in which case type the number of the Windows installation you wish to work on (usually "1").

When prompted, enter the Administrator's password for that Windows installation. If you did not set a password just press ENTER

At the command prompt, type
Bootcfg /Rebuild
ENTER

The exact wording will depend on your setup, but after a few moments you'll see a prompt that says something like:
Total Identified Windows Installs: 1
[1] C:\Windows
Add Installation To Boot List?

Assuming the information you see is correct, enter
Y
Bootcfg will start the process of rebuilding the boot list to include the indicated Windows installation

After a moment, you'll be asked to "Enter Load Identifier."
This is the name of the operating system that will appear in boot menus.
Type
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
or
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
(whichever your system is)
ENTER
Next you'll be asked to "Enter OS Load Options."
For normal installations, enter
/Fastdetect
ENTER

Type
Exit
to leave the Recovery Console and reboot the PC

Note
If this does not help, it will not do any more harm either.

A:Windows XP BSOD will not reboot no matter what I do

Hi tommy, welcome to TSF.

BTRYCHKR.sys - is the Toshiba Battery Checker driver - it could be corrupt??

There are reports that a Windows Update is causing BSOD's with computers with corrupted drivers, or an infected atapi.sys file. The fact you're able to name a driver in the Safe Mode boot up process is intriguing.

OK, so assuming the patch was installed before you pulled the cord - please do the following:


Code:
1. Boot from your Windows XP CD or DVD and start the recovery console (see this Microsoft article for help with this step)
Once you are in the Repair Screen..
2. Type this command: CHDIR $NtUninstallKB977165 $\spuninst
3. Type this command: BATCH spuninst.txt
4. Type this command: systemroot
5. When complete, type this command: exit
Does this enable you to get back into Windows??

A:Blue Screen no matter what I do!

Hello Beth ,

yes that will reset the bios , but then you will need to reset your boot order so to boot from the cd rom as the first priority / also while you have your system down & the battery removed ,(push the power button to completely power down the motherboard ,hold it in for a count of 10 )

also when you are installing the fresh in stall when you get to where it ask about installing or repairing & what partition / not the first choice but the second choice you will want to deleat all the preveiously installed to wich if i remember right it will be a (D) then an (L)

this will ensure that you get a fresh install and wont be overwriting the problem partition

i think you are going to have to take the side off and check for any loose connections. make sure if theres a video card that its seated properly .
if you have no success, unplug it and pop the battery out for at least 20 minutes to reset the cmos.
you might need to tweak the bios setup options afterwards.

Do you have an ISO program open like MagicISO or PowerISO, perhaps Daemon tools open or perhaps a virtual disk active. Check Computer for a virtual disk, and task manager for an ISO type program that may be open. If so end the task or disable the virtual disk then try deleting the file again.

There's a zillion sites out there that sell pirated software for cheap. Just search for "Buy Windows OEM" and the top search results are usually all illegal sites. Usually these sites are run buy thieves in places like Russia.

All Windows XP Pro OEM CD's are the same
All Windows XP Home OEM CD's are the same
All Windows 7 Home OEM CD's are the same
etc.
I believe the same goes with the more expensive retail CD's that allow you to move the OS from machine to machine.

The product key is what matters. With OEM if you install on a different machine, then it will not validate, and after 30 day's you're done unless you buy another product key.
With retail you're only allowed to have the product key on one machine at a time.

Hey everyone. About 3 days ago my Facebook stopped loading. I know this is a dumb reason to write on here but it's the only way I have to talk to some of my family. I have tried getting it to load on IE 9, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. It's windows 7 - 64 bit. I have messed with everything.. the firewall, cleared everything.. It'll bring up the login page and then when I log in it only brings up the blue bar at the top. It won't let me click on anything. All other websites are working fine. Please help!!!

A:Facebook will not load no matter what I do!!

I just wrote up something similar to your problem (except the user could not access Google/Bing instead of Facebook). I would check that out and see if that fixes the problem and of course would just contact the ISP if you don't know how to do any of the suggested solutions or none of them work.

Google not working, please help!

Best of luck!

After reading a guide on www howtogeek com on how to get the Vista Service Pack update to appear in Windows Update - I installed you wouldn't believe - all remove Cannot language - no matter what packs the optional language packs that were available The main problem in the end was that while the guide said that you must have installed ALL of the optional updates that windows update had to offer - the actual SP was only available for people who had one all of the listed language packs installed I am well aware of the fact that the SP will be 're-released' for the rest of the world in April - but that feels like ages away at the moment I am THAT desperate to get my hands on SP Now after understanding that I have to remove nearly all of the language packs that I had installed I start to uninstall them I was able to uninstall about language packs out of all the selected - now that is where the problem begins I am not able to uninstall any of the Chinese language packs and some other language packs I get a list of language packs that failed to uninstall at the end of the uninstall process I tried to troubleshoot the problem but the closest thing for a solution that I got was Cannot remove language packs - no matter what that Cannot remove language packs - no matter what I should uninstall the language interface pack s LIP before uninstalling the language pack or uninstall the LIP at the same time as uninstalling the language pack Now after seeing that 'solution' I went on the internet to look for some fixes of this issue All I found was that many more people are having this issue I also found that the LIP's are supposedly suppose to be stored in Cannot remove language packs - no matter what the 'Programs and Features' section of the Control Panel I went in there and found nothing what-so-ever to do with LIP's How can I remove the language packs Please do not put comments which have any of the following solutions system restore reformatting

A:Cannot remove language packs - no matter what

If you are still having trouble removing the language packs, try disabling UAC, disable system restore, disable the windows update service, delete the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder, reboot, and then do this:

Then run lpksetup and remove each language pack one at a time. It worked for me! :)

Actually sounds like your hard drive might have some errors on it.


Go to Start ---> Run ---> Type the following chkdsk c: /f

You will probably be prompted to reboot to allow it to run at reboot. Let me know if it was successful.

pretty much the thread's title. every file I download even simple stuff like FLASH from adobe's site or anything basic like drivers from Nvidia to anything complicated like Aion or WoW it says all the files are corrupt. Possible virus.

Also, I cannt download a malware scanning software because it will just say file is corrupt when i extract it.

Lastly, youtube videos are stopping randomly and any other flash product video type thing is stopping randomly halfway through the video.

Any suggestions on to why this is? I ran a full system scan on norton and nothing was picked up.

lastly, sound wont work on any browsers too. Like sound wont come up on youtube videos either. it will work at first, than stop the sound.

A:Every file I download is corrupt no matter ZIP or RaR. Possible trojan!

Welcome to TSF.

Let's use a program to scan for any trojans that may exist. Download TDS-3. Learn how to use it here. Make sure to update it after you installed it. You can get the manual updates here. When you launch the program, it will scan your memory for running processes. This will take less than 30 seconds. Next go to System Testing on the menu and choose Full System Scan. After that's finished, post the log file by selecting everything on the top pane (select from bottom to top). If any alarms are found, it will be listed in the bottom window. Please copy and paste that here also if it applies.

have an extremely weird problem occuring nowadays. i'm not sure why, but somehow my copy/paste function is now semi 'hard-linked' to my downloads folder. i'll try to explain it here.
 
Downloads folder : F:\Downloads
which contains a bunch of random files and folders. 
 
 
Let's say I choose to copy 2013.docx from C:\ to E:\, now it copies the ENTIRE Downloads folder together with 2013.docx to E:. 
 
This doesn't happen all the time, but MOST of the time it does and it irritates me - because i have to delete the redundant copy of my Downloads folder. 
 
sure, i might be able to get away with it by renaming the Downloads folder, but i want to understand WHY it happens and HOW i can prevent it in the future. 
 
thanks!

Hi there recently I've been having trouble with Windows wanting to switch me out of Aero mode no matter what Aero Computer matter no Basic to from Switching what? I've attempted to do to fix it I've tried numerous things such as switching it manually using the command prompt - net stop uxsms net start uxsms which may work for a few seconds but then immediately switches back to basic I've also tried additions in the regedit as I've found some people have had success with it online but it has not been fixed so far I've tried playing with the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager entry with Services msc and the same issue with the command prompt fix happens It simply returns to basic a few seconds after In performance options I've switched Visual Effects to Custom with all options on as well as trying best appearance Troubleshooting Aero also does nothing I don't think it is an issue with my hardware as it performs pretty well when it comes to gaming on newer titles which I do regularly Are there any ideas as to how to fix this or prevent windows from switching out constantly Is it a bug Computer Switching from Aero to Basic no matter what? with Computer Switching from Aero to Basic no matter what? a driver perhaps Any help would be very much appreciated Thank you in advance

I re installed Win 7 after trying Win 10 for awhile and everything seems fine except windows update just searches for hours and it finds nothing .
 
 
Only updates i see installed are :
 
kb2534111
kb958488
kb976902
 
Any ideas
 
Thank you

A:Can't get windows updates to install no matter what i do

G'day herbman, give this a run. There are two options...try #1 first....then if no joy, #2.........then
 
Option 1: applying quick fixes to Windows Update
Automated troubleshooter works in all supported Windows versions (from XP to 8.1, support for Windows 10 will become available shortly).
Open Microsoft's How do I reset Windows Update components page.
Click the Run now button in the appropriate section: Windows 8.1, Windows 8, and Windows 7; or Windows Vista and Windows XP. 
After downloading and launching WindowsUpdateDiagnostics.diagcab, click Next.
The Find and fix problems with Windows Update tool will then run different problem detections and repairs. This usually takes several minutes. Click Close the troubleshooter after the process is complete.
Please note that in Safe Mode the Fix status column will always state "Not fixed" because Automatic Updates service cannot be started.
If required, restart your PC. After this, you can test if Windows Update works correctly.
Option 2: downloading Fix It tool 50202 to reinstall Windows Update completely
Fix It 50202 works in Windows XP, Vista and 7 only.
If the first option did not help, Microsoft also has the very powerful Fix It Tool 50202 that completely reinstalls Windows Update components. This one is especially helpful in cases where Windows Update is not able to check for updates (for example, error 800700C1) or installs the same updates all over again (several cases with infinite loops of .NET Framework updates).
Because Microsoft just loves to move the tool randomly around (and its site search is not helpful either), I now provide direct download link to Fix It Tool 50202.
Please save the file, do not run it automatically!
After downloading is complete, run the program (named MicrosoftFixit50202.msi).
Click I Agree in the License Terms page and then click Next.
As you can see, the Run aggressive options (not recommended) check box on Additional options screen is unchecked. I strongly suggest to execute the repairs without enabling aggressive options for the first time - this will retain all Windows Update and Microsoft Update settings.
Click Next.
In Windows Vista and 7, User Account Control will appear. Click Continue or Yes.
The tool will then create a System Restore point and run the fixes. Some files might be downloaded during the process.
After the program has done its job, click Close.
A prompt to restart your computer appears. Save open documents and close all open programs. Then click Yes.
Verify that Automatic Updates, Windows Update or Microsoft Update works. If not, re-run the Fix It Tool 50202, but tick the Run aggressive options (not recommended) check box this time.
After using aggressive options, you must configure Windows Update again.
Using the aggressive options also clears update history, but the list of applied updates can still be found in Control Panel.
In Windows XP, open Control Panel and click Add/Remove Programs. Then tick the Show updates check box and choose Date Last Used from the Sort by combo box. The latter sorts updates by their install date.
In Windows Vista and newer, open Control Panel and click Programs and Features (or Uninstall a program if using Category view). In Windows 8 and 8.1, you can also use keyboard shortcut Windows Key+X to reveal the Quick Links menu and click Programs and Features (the topmost item) there.
Then click View installed updates on the left.
To sort the list by date, click Installed On column once. Clicking it again reverses the sort order.

Hello folks This is my first post I've been a long fan of BleepingComputer com but I have never needed to ever post something because the wealth of information here was able to help me resolve most problems That is until now I have been fixing computers for years and I don't remember to have ever been in a position where I have exhausted all options and have surrendered to the reality that it may be the motherboard But despite my experience I know I'm a novice at this game so that's why I'm turning to the people here I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre M Desktop This is not mine but a friends The problem is as follows When the computer boots up there is a splash screen which says the system is starting and to interrupt the startup I can hit enter If I hit enter screen disappears and I'm brought to a black screen with the cursor blinking on the top left corner Clearly the issue is startup related so all I'm thinking - Startup Blinking Unique no what! Lenovo: Cursor matter Problem about is trying to fix the MBR or even considering flashing the BIOS So I attempt to get into the BIOS Since hitting enter brought me nowhere I decided to use other common hot keys Hitting F F Delete F F from the splash screen take me nowhere except to the blinking cursor I hit ESC and viola Another screen that displays lots of text as well as memory information which is all accurate This screen also gives me two additional options Hit F for setup or F to enter Startup Device Menu When I hit F I get a familiar error message PXE-E The LAN adapter's configuration is corrupted or has not been initialized The Boot Agent cannot continue The error sticks around only for a few seconds then disappears and we're back to the blinking cursor When I choose to go with F it says that it is going into the boot menu but after the screen disappears it takes me back to the blinking cursor Aside from this you should know that I've attempted using basic hardware configuration which has done nothing When the computer boots the power seems to be going everywhere All fans run albeit a little too fast but run nonetheless CD drive has power therefore I assume the hard drive is getting power as well The display obviously gets power Lenovo: Unique Startup Problem - Blinking Cursor no matter what! I tried to Lenovo: Unique Startup Problem - Blinking Cursor no matter what! isolate the issue by removing one hardware component at at time until Lenovo: Unique Startup Problem - Blinking Cursor no matter what! only the basic components remained power one memory stick keyboard display Same results Also you should know that I have heard no beep from this computer in all of these scenarios Oh and I've tried to clear the CMOS using the jumper The machine is totally locked me out and I can't seem to think of any other troubleshooting technique I can employ Either I'm overlooking something big that I needs consideration or this computer is gone Still given the state of the hardware components as well as being able to get a display sounds like there is definitely hope But I can't wrap my mind around how I can get to a point where I can boot from a removable media I just can't get there This is driving me nuts Any help would be much appreciated Thank you

A:Lenovo: Unique Startup Problem - Blinking Cursor no matter what!

Hello, and Welcome,
Have you replaced the CMOS battery with a new one? PXE errors can be due to a bad hard drive or bad CMOS battery. I would also powercycle the computer if you have not tried it yet. Pull the power cord. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds, Replace the power cord and boot.
 
Depending on how many RAM modules you have, start with one and try to boot. Change slots. If that does not help, replace with the other module if there is more than one and try both slots booting between each changed location.
 
I would also reseat any hard drive cables at the hard drive and motherboard. When booting, can you hear the hard drive spin up when the side panel is removed? Good Luck

They say something about configuration settings.

A:Do desktop .ini files matter?

Some steps for solving this problem. These steps are below: First of all you will double-click "My Computer" on the desktop.Then you will click "Tools" > "Folder Options".After that you will see "Folder Options" multi-tabbed dialog box, choose the "View" tab.Scroll down to "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" and tick or untick the combo box as preferred.Below you will see "Hidden files and folders", ensure the preferred radio button to display or not display these stuffs.And then will press "OK"Finally: Reboot when finished for settings to apply -To actually answer the basic question, they are not needed on the desktop -

Hi Bought a new Behringer mixer with a USB output Plugged it in and as always happens I get this message This happened before with a Logitech headset Logitech s tech support was of zero help as per usual No matter how many times what do. USB Audio matter I no CODEC No I search for this driver no matter how many times CNET and Microsoft and Behringer point me to things to download and I run them whatever the hell this thing is will not install Now I m not asking it to run some alien software or something some guy made in his basement in Omaha This is all stuff from reputable sources and whatever the hell this thing is will not install no matter what I do No matter how many times I run setup No matter how many times I search for this one seemingly small thing it s not happening Sound goes into and presumably out of the mixer but not into the computer which was the whole point of buying a mixer with a USB output I am beyond frustrated I No USB Audio CODEC no matter what I do. simply cannot understand how manufacturers can make something that will not work I m running Windows -bit on an Acer that I bought months ago If there s anybody who has any idea how to put a solution in No USB Audio CODEC no matter what I do. fairly plain English I d be greatly appreciative

A:No USB Audio CODEC no matter what I do.

Tried plugging it into different USB ports, no dice. Tried running the supposed driver program that is on the CD that came with the mixer.Now, you'd expect something that said it was the Behringer audio driver to actually be the correct driver, yes? Yet I've run it now three times, rebooted every time, and every time I get With these details:So it's all ready to use! Except for the freaking driver. Which is no small detail.
