Frequent BSODs last month, then stopped, now re-occuring

Q: Frequent BSODs last month, then stopped, now re-occuring

About a month ago I had this thread going:
http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...r_equal-2.html

Then the system stabilized. Now I am receiving daily blue screens again. The most frequent is 0x000001a Memory Management. Info attached.

Please help.

Preferred Solution: Frequent BSODs last month, then stopped, now re-occuring

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.)

Caused by your wlite.exe (xp webcam driver) and some really old drivers

Update these

How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.


- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

I have no clue if I'm posting this in the correct place but here it goes my Sell insperion laptop worked just fine as of a couple of days ago. We ended up connecting it to the Ethernet cord and it works. We've tried restarting it numerous times and it doesn't recognize any networks. Any suggestions?
 

A:Wi-Fi stopped working now only works wired

Have you checked under your Device Manager to see if the WiFi was disabled for some reason? Does your Dell have a physical WiFi button, and is it turned on? You could also go to the Dell website and download the WiFi device drivers for your specific laptop. Un-install the WiFi drivers, reboot and then re-install them.

Hi there,

The laptop I have is an asus P550C, windows 7.

This laptop came pre-installed with Mcafee Antivirus protection for a limited amount of time. Wifi was working perfectly fine although there were occasions where the connection would disconnect by itself. After the free-trial ended, I did not want to buy the packaged they were advertising so I went to my Control Panel and uninstalled Mcafee. This was when the problem started to occur. The internet access icon had a red x and when I went to diagnose the problem, it said that I needed to connect via an ethernet cable. Since then, I have connected it with an ethernet and internet works and I have also installed AVG's free antivirus software.

I have tried to
type: ipconfig /flushdns
type: nbtstat -R
type: netsh int reset all
type: netsh int ip reset
type: netsh winsock reset

But I still cannot connect via wifi. Please help

I and Driver responding stopped recovered has purchased an HP-f wm with an Intel N processor about a month ago It s running Windows I also bought a mouse for it since it s not a touch screen that allows me to scroll side to side and makes not having the touch screen easier to Driver stopped responding and has recovered operate The what I thought was Driver stopped responding and has recovered mouse started freezing in the middle of using it to surf the net or working in documents it Driver stopped responding and has recovered just freezes for a bit then starts working again Last night I got an error message after it did this saying the driver had stopped working and recovered I didn t notice that it said which driver I found a fix for this on the Microsoft website but it was for Windows I have tried to do all the updates that it needed when I first got it but I have to do them a few at a time as they fail if I try to do them all at once I have gone through and done several of these one at a time Recent updates have successfully installed it s just the ones needed when I first started using it that are a problem I have about left from Sept-Dec Any advice would be appreciated I got this from Amazon so I have no support nor can I return it nbsp

A:Driver stopped responding and has recovered

Two suggestions:

Try installing the software under "Windows 7" preferances. When you go to install the software (I do not have windows 8.1 myself, just going off Windows 7 features) Right click the installer and go to properties. Under "Compatibility" select "Compatibility Mode" as "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select Windows 7.

Also select the "Priviledge Level" to make sure there is a checkmark in "Run this program as an administrator"
The other option is to find any driver software that is installed with the mouse and ensure that it is changed to these settings as well. If you want me to go into depth about how to do that I can explain further. But the general idea is to find the .EXE for the software that starts with windows and change the properties to the same as you did with the installer.

hello techspot, I keep getting this error when I play games in my computre. what should I do to fix this error?
 

A:Display driver stopped responding and has recovered

I get this error every once and a while. Updating your GPU drivers usually solves the issue. Do you know what GPU you are running? Post your full system specs below and then we can go from there.

Hey,

Yesterday, I was working with my PC while my 1TB Seagate external hard (http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FreeAgent-Ultra-Portable-External-STAA1000101/dp/B0045JLPMO) was plugged in via USB. The USB connection was a little bit loose.

Then when I was plugging a USB flash memory in, I noticed that the external hard was disconnected.
I connected it again, but it didn't appear in My Computer.
Here is the state in Disk Management and Device Manager:




After that, I plugged out the "SATA to USB converter" from the hard and connected it directly to SATA cable inside the PC case (like internal HDD), but this time nothing showed up in Disk Management, Device Manager and BIOS. However, it took a long time for the system to boot.


I searched and read lots of threads and tested some other stuff:





(It didn't appear in Minitool Partion Wizad).

I've got a lot of data on this HDD which really matters to me.
Any help is really appreciated.
 

A:FreeAgent 1TB External Hard stopped working (unknown, not initialized)

Hi there Sedhadi,

If your HDD is failing the manufacturer's tests it is probably dead. IF you need to get your data back look for a reputable data recovery company in the area.
Hope that helps.

I have a toshiba satellite C870-11H. It used to ask for the password whenever it went to sleep. I checked and the system is still set to do so.

Some time ago I got fed up with the clowns at Microsoft thinking their latest update was more important than whatever I happened to be doing and destroying the work I was doing so they could load their rubbish. I set the system to ask me before doing an update. Well it doesn't bother to do that and now very rarely it does load an update without authority. Could it be that my system is now way out of date?

Is there a customer focused operating system that I could use instead?

Thanks.
 

A:Laptop stopped asking for password

Every OS is customer focused. Microsoft is for non-Mac machines and getting things done. Linux is more powerful but requires more techy-ness to use.

Maybe try Mac OSX.

But there's nothing wrong with Windows. Sounds like you have a decent amount of problems.
Run WIndows update, make sure it's completed every update.
Run CMD.exe in admin mode, run sfc /scannow

A:Laptop keys stopped working and some type the wrong thing...

It could be a virus. But It also could just be your keyboard is bad. You may need to take it to your local repair shop if it. Is a laptop and have them check the keyboard out for you. I really do not think it is a virus.

Not only has the wifi stopped working I don't even see the list of available networks anymore. I must plug in the Ethernet cable to access the internet. I think I may have a virus. I just purschased this laptop a few months ago. It is an Acer Aspire
 

A:Wi-Fi stopped

First, ensure the driver is healthy. Use the command prompt to run devmgmt.msc,
[+] expand the Network Adapters and the NIC and WiFi devices should be there without and red/yellow flags

You might look for driver updates for the WiFi

What make/model is your router? Have you undated it YET?

Hi I have a HP Laptop it?s but with newish software running vista. Its all been working fine form about a year or so. The other day some of the keys stopped working, I have not dropped it or spilled anything on it. I turned it and when I tried to go back in to it, it came up with the black BIOS screen. However as the keys were not working it would not let me select anything (i.e safe mode) it times down to open in the already highlighted section which was rum window as normal (or something like that) it then gave a blue screen and said it was doing a crash dump. After this it went back to the black BIOS screen and repeated the whole thing. Its stuck in some sort of loop. I don?t have any disks to reinstall what can I do???
 

A:Laptop keys stopped working and now I can use BIOS

I'm going to have your thread moved to a more appropriate hardware forum. Consider the possibility tat the keyboard may be defective and you may have to replace it. That is no problem- I just replaced mine.

I don't know why but some games that I play have no audio. I go in the settings of the games and its not the game itself. I think its my computer and I'm not sure if its some settings that got put on some how. One thing im confused about is, it's not all the games, some do have sound but its not the ones I play the most. What should I do?

Games I play are, Without sound: StarCraft 2, Diablo 3, Team Fortress 2, Garry's Mod (or simplified my Valve and Blizzard games)
With sound: Terraria, Realm Of The Mad God,

My son was using my computer temporarily for work. He was uninstalling Abobe Illustrator and needed to restart to complete the uninstall. When the computer restarted, the monitor ceased to get a signal from the computer. Have tried unplugging the monitor for a bit, tried restarting in safe mode - nothing has worked. Has the monitor somehow been fried from just a restart?
 

A:Monitor stopped working after uninstall

Really I don't think it fried from a restart. It just may have went bad. Have you tried another monitor to make sure. It could also be your on board Graphics or graphics card.

In league of lengends my fps keepings dropping to about about 2-7 (usually stays at 50-60). I have all the settings turned to low and resolution all the way down. My ping is around 150-250(sometimes 400) but it slows my entire computer down for about 5 minutes or more than it jumps back up for about 10 minutes and does it again. Any suggestions?

Hi,

I have had an Iomega external hard for a year now and it used to work perfectly, until suddenly, my computer (Mac) won't detect it anymore.

When I turn it on, the blue light comes on and I can hear the disk spinning inside, but there is no trace of any external device connected to my mac. I've connected through USB and Firewire with no success. Going to disk utility, only my internal hard drive appears.

It simply just stopped showing up on my computer. Does anybody have any advice to get my hard drive working again?
 

A:Iomega External Hard Drive stopped being detected

Try a different usb & firewire port physically on your mac & try a different cable. If no dice try it on a different mac or even on a PC, see if the other computer detects it. many times w/ external hard drives the enclosure fails but the drive is ok. worse case scenario the enclosure is bad & you can remove drive to put in another enclosure, or the whole thing could be hosed. try this, post back. thanks!

I have a problem with my desktop PC The USB ports are not working so I can t use my keyboard or mouse I m not sure if it has any connection with this but today I tried installing a SSD to my system with no luck While doing that I set the BIOS to AHCI as I read that would be the most optimal Well I kept getting errors trying to install Win to the SSD so I decided to save it for a later time Then I turned off my PC unplugged the SSD and plugged my HDD back in On boot up I entered BIOS and set settings to default After this my USB ports stopped working I have tried turning off my system unplugging the powercord and the CMOS battery for at least minutes with no luck I have also tried plugging my keyboard into every single USB port my PC has I can t even enter BIOS or press F to enter safe mode now Any suggestions stopped USB ports working I m using WinXP and my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA- A-UD nbsp USB ports stopped working

A:USB ports stopped working

Borrow or purchase a ps2 kb. Enter BIOS and enable USB KB/Mouse. I'm not sure it is called exactly that, but it is something similar that you will be able to find. I too have a Gigabyte motherboard (older than yours even) and have had problems with it liking USB kb inputs until I explicitly set that in the BIOS. What is weird is sometimes USB will work if that isn't set, or sometimes it will half-*** work, as in I could get into the BIOS or force the boot selection menu, but then the kb wouldn't work.

So bottom line is, I know what you are describing, but I don't know of a good fix, outside of just acquiring a ps2 kb which will get you out of this situation 100% of the time.

Hello,
I have a problem with SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio on my HP - nc6220 laptop, WinXP professional sp2.

SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio just stopped working, I tried reinstalling it but it always says that there was a problem during installation and it might not work properly.

In Control Panel>Sounds and Audio devices it's all grayed out so I cannot do anything there.
In device manager there is a yellow exclamation mark, I tried disable-enable but it does not help.
I also tried updating the driver, re-enabling windows audio in services, even reinstalled Windows and installing sp3.

Also I tried an USB sound card and it is working well.

Is there anything else I could do, or maybe SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio is just broken and cannot be fixed?

Hi
I am using a iomega prestige external hard drive. I have uses this for years with no problem. All of a sudden it as stopped working. It shows up in the listed devices but is inaccessible. It shows up as drive e in the device management. I have assigned another drive letter but with no success. I have removed and reinstalled with no success. It just will not show up in the my computer part. The drive makes no noise and the light does not flash but is receiving power. When I removed the item it did reinstall again no joy. I am now worrying as I have important data on it. My virus scanner also recognises the device and when I run this it finds nothing to scan. Can anyone help?

You might have to open up your case, trace back the cable, and re-plug it. It could be detached, or the USB controller on the front ports could be fried somehow too.

"I already checked the sound driver, no question marks appeared"... Do you mean no exclamation points like this (!)? If you can hear normal sound from the headset the sound driver is okay. This could be caused by a keyboard setting. Make sure the sound is all the way up and that it is not muted

So I tried, te basic turn it on and off and I could access it by cable, but the wireless is still not working on my laptop. I checked if the wireless board was properly configured and everything seems alright.
I think the problem is on the laptop because the wireless works on my phone and tablet!

A:How to fix netbt stopped

The Netbt is NetBIOS over TCP and used for accessing systems on your LAN, not the internet per se.
You should be able to use email / browsers without netbt. Suggest you start by issuing IPCONFIG /ALL
and ensure your tcp settngs are correct.

In the meanwhile, I'll refer you to How to reinstall NetBIOS

I tried looking around for a solution but can't seem to find anyone with a similar issue to mine. I just bought an ASUS usb n53 wireless adapter. I was previously using a Rosewill wireless adapter just before I installed the new one and everything with my connection was fine. After I downloaded the drivers off the disc and tried to open the utility program for the adapter I get this message: Wireless Lan Control Manager has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Not sure what I need to do at this point. Thanks in advance for the help. Just let me know any info you need for me and I'll post back asap.

I have had my ASUS G51VX laptop for a couple years now and it's still going strong. However, just recently the built-in SD card reader has stopped reading cards for some reason. When I pop in a card Windows will make the sound that a USB device has been plugged in and then a couple seconds later it will make the unplugged sound. The "Removable Storage Device" does not show up in Computer. I've tried looking through the Device Manager to find the card reader and re-install the driver, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. I suppose it is one of the USB controllers. I've also tried multiple SD cards so I know it's not the card.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Hello, I have a Dell Precision M4500 laptop which stopped recognizing the battery a couple months back. I have had the laptop for one year now with absolutely no problems up until this happened. I am pretty sure the battery is still good, it's not that old, but since the computer wont even recognize it is in, there's no way to check if it can charge. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, maybe there is a fix before I have to shell out the money for a new battery.

Hey,

I was listening to music and my JBL II (2.1) speakers stopped working all of a sudden (they didn't make any special noise before they went dead), and their lights went off.
The light on the Sub-woofer is on, however.
I tried unplugging and replugging all power cables from and to the system, and all of the related computer cables. Also tried restarting the computer.
Nothing seems to work.

I've read on a similar thread that it might be the fuse blown out or the amp overheated.
How can I find out what's the problem, and how do I fix it?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:JBL speakers stopped working

ok check the fuse in the plug I think it should be 5amp so take another one from another lead somewhere to test . also leave for 20 minutes let amp cool down then try if works then amp over heating .. make sure unplugged both ends when checking fuse.. if still not working then look in device manager make sure these is no yellow exclamation marks .. go to start computer system properties hardware device manager if there is let us know .. hope this been helpful but someone more experienced might be able to offer better advice

A:External hard drive stopped showing up in My Computer

"I hear a weird intermittent constant "Sound" and it's NOT loud, MAYBE It's a "Clicking" sound, But I'm not sure."

Maybe a soft click or a sliding sound? The drive should normally do nothing more than hum.

"I connected it to another PC, it didn't work there too."

Dang it didn't past the test here either. When things go wrong in my computers I often try them in another machine. If it works in the second machine then I know it's still working. If it doesn't work in the second machine then I usually consider the device dead. I'd try a third machine if you have that resource.

If the data are that important I'd consult a data recovery specialist.

However this morning when I turned on my computer, it was all colours and lines, not even a hint of what it should be displaying, and its not my computer, because when it's not connected to my computer, it doesnt even say "no signal" just shows these colours/lines, the menu doesnt come up either, so somehow the physical screen seems to have broken over night I've done nothing to it, no impacts or anything.

Does anyone have any idea what's caused this? or what I can do to fix it?

Many thanks, it's a lovely screen and would hate to see it go
 

A:Monitor stopped working over night :(

My old monitor used to do that. When it happened, I just do the most basic thing. Unplug the power adapter, the video connector, plug back it in, and normally that's all it takes.

I have recently cleared my pc of dust and what not. There was no possible way it could have been effected by a static charge however my monitor will no longer work, it justs stays on the orange standby light. It did work previous to this. I have tried other monitors with my PC and they dont work either so it is a problem with the system itself, can anybody tell me what has happened and how i may sort it? Thanks
 

A:My PC monitor has stopped working

Is it plugged into a graphics card or the motherboard chip? Maybe your graphics card just died, or that your motherboard chip got damaged.

Hi there A couple of months ago my CD DVD-RW drive stopped Built-in CD/DVD-RW functioning drive stopped working it works physically but when I enter a CD the software will not read it and the corresponding drive in the My Computer screen disappeared However since I found out it stopped working I ve been too lazy to try and fix the problem Today however I made some attempts to retrieve it First off I opened my case I handpicked the hardware ingredients some years ago and had it assembled for me and tried to figure out if any cables were disconnected from the device I m by no means an expert on the subject but I think the drive was still connected properly Next up I checked out my BIOS It said something about a ROM station being disabled but enabling that did not help At the booting options however I found the option quot IDE TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH- J quot which I m guessing must be the drive so my software recognizes the device right Not finding anything else I just checked off quot Return all values to default quot but that did not retrieve the device either Finally I tried switching some devices of on and using the quot Search for changed apparatus quot function in the screen I don t know what it s called in English included in the attachment In this application I tried using the CD DVD-stations as well as the IDE section since in the BIOS the device was identified with the IDE tag Long story short I still have no idea how to retrieve the device Any ideas Built-in CD/DVD-RW drive stopped functioning Thanks in advance Built-in CD/DVD-RW drive stopped functioning Relativism nbsp

A:Built-in CD/DVD-RW drive stopped functioning

In 'Device manager' (the screen in your image), right-click on the DVD/CD and choose "uninstall this device".
Re-start the PC and you should find, Windows finds the DVD/CD and installs the drivers for it. It should then work.

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. (???)

I remember having this same problem years ago with XP but forgot how I fixed it.

Anyone have any ideas?
 

A:Network "dialer" stopped loading at startup. Weird.

run SERVICES.MSC and verify Network Connections is enabled and autostarted.

View Network Connections and be sure the connection properties are correct.

Move the shortcut in my Startup folder to the All Users\Startup

Okay, so my girlfriend is currently living in Hawaii, and her computer is constantly heating up. Just recently (Or at least, recently that she's told me) her computer's internal fans have stopped spinning. When this first happened, she and her mother opened it up and cleaned it out, which worked the first couple of times.

Now however, the only fan that was working, the smaller one that I assume is the power supply fan, has stopped spinning, and no matter what she does, it won't spin. Because there is a large lack of money between the 3 of us (My girlfriend, myself, and her mother) a replacement is unlikely to happen, so is there any way to save her computer without buying anything?
 

A:Girlfriend's computer's fan(s) stopped spinning and she's panicking...

Fans stopped?

Guessing this is a Tower (Desktop PC?)
If the fan has stopped in the PSU, it's possible that it's motor has failed.
They are built for a long life, but don't last forever.
I am assuming the PSU does work the PC properly?
But if the fan is not working, I would not use it for now, or just to test it can boot to the desktop.
If you have no, or not much money to spend on it, you could add another fan on the outside of the PC, over the top of where the (not spinning) one is now.
It won't look very slick, but it's around the back anyway.
You will need to power it from a power cable inside the PC, but you can buy all the parts for very little, about 10 / $18?
Ideally you would buy a new PSU, but guessing not an option.
Have a look here;

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/arctic-cooling-f8-pwm-case-fan-80mm-07929944-pdt.html
and to extend the cable;
http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/products/cables/zm-ec1
You may have a socket on the motherboard to connect to this to; if you can't find one, then you can get a plug/socket that takes power from a hard disc power plug or a DVD power plug (same thing). I have a fan powered that way.
But until the fan is working at the back of the power supply, I would suggest not to use the pc, it will not do it any good at all.

Alright I have a whole bunch of my music and videos on my external hard drive and I got a new Dell XPS yesterday I had been using my external hard drive just fine for the past - yeas now with different laptops working fine I plugged it yesterday to transfer all my music to my new computer and it seemed to be working fine There was an error as the copy rate External Local -- won't open Disk as only working, shows drive hard stopped up slowwed so I decided to delete and try again I did that about times and then decided to just copy the music album by album Eventually I don External hard drive stopped working, only shows up as Local Disk -- won't open t know how it ended up happening instead of the Hard Drive coming up as Seagate on the My Computer Tab it started showing up as Local Disk J on my Dell and Local Disk E on my laptop now It doesn t matter where I plug it in Not only that it won t open when I try to open it It will get loaded and then just pause and stop responding I m completely lost My hard drive is Seagate GB nbsp

A:External hard drive stopped working, only shows up as Local Disk -- won't open

Hi, first I would run the Seagate diagnostics to check the hard drive is still healthy following this guide.



Identify the make of your hard drive and then use one of the links below to get the manufacturers diagnostic for ISO CD. Burn the image file to a CD, boot the PC with the disc in the drive and run the diagnostics. You first need to set the CD drive to 1st in the boot order in the Bios setup.

If you do not have an image burner use this free software to make the CD.

If you have a Toshiba hard drive I would suggest the use of the diagnostics from the Seagate link as this will work on all makes of drive and on any OS.Click to expand...

It sounds likely that the circuitry in the drive enclosure is failing (or the drive), if the test won't run then remove the drive from the enclosure and purchase a USB Hard Drive adapter, or use the internal connections in a desktop PC to connect the drive. This should allow you to run the test and/or extract all the files.

If the test runs ok with the drive connected to another PC internally, or with a USB adapter then you will know for sure that it is the enclosure that has failed.

i have a toshiba satellite and on the back it says the model name is satellite l500-1dt.
i am new to this website and using forums, the message that comes up on my computer is

system warning
Warning:a problem with the cooling system has been detected. please turn off the computer immediately, and return it for service.

i am currently working in the alps and do not have an english speaking computer shop near by.
could any one help me and advise me what to do, i do not know much about taking a laptop apart to clean or change parts.
 

A:My Toshiba Satellite l500 cooling fan has stopped working

I would purchase a can of compressed air or use an air compressor (with a light gentle nozzle) and blow the dust out of the inside. If you have a failed cooling fan, then it will need to be repaired or replaced. That model I think is rather old, it may not be worth it to repair.

2) In the device manager it tells me I have two HID-compliant mouse drivers, location: "On USB Input Device" - I only have one USB input for my mouse. I tried disabling one of the drivers to see if it was a conflict problem. No luck.

Any ideas? The mouse is a "Wireless Optical Mouse M/N:SM-502C"

So my laptop's going on three years old here. And just the other day, it was working perfectly fine until I noticed it was getting insanely hot. Not terribly long after that, it suddenly and without warning shut down. It was when I had turned it back on that I noticed that my fan wasn't working. It's now been roughly a week, and the fan hasn't come back online, and since it's the beginning of June, my laptop is having some major heat management issues.

So, I don't want to have to crack my laptop open to take a look inside, but I fear it's my only option. I've tried using compressed air, or searching for any way possible to start the fan up from Windows, but all hope seems lost. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

A:PCI-E card stopped working

I think it's more likely the graphics card itself is bad. Trying another card in the slot is a good idea and should confirm whether your card has failed or not. Doing so is merely a common diagnostics step and not something to be avoided so I don't understand the need to figure this out without testing the card.

A:My mic was working fine then stopped the next day

The quickest test for this is to first try another mic. If you are quite certain that no settings have been changed then your mic has probably developed a fault.

Hi there I am looking for some help with my old laptop. It is a Dell Inspiron 6000 and the PSU has stopped working altogether.

I have some other dell laptops and since it is not worth buying a new PSU for this old laptop I was wondering if it would work with one of the PSU from the others I have.

One is also fairly old: Inspiron 1525 with a supply from the PA-12 family putting out 19.5V and 3.34 Amps. The other is a new Latitude E6410 putting out 19.5 V and 4.62 Amps.

The label on the back of the Inspiron 6000 says it takes an input of 19.5V and 4.62A. SO my question is will either of these work? I only need to power the laptop I don't need to charge the battery.

Thank you in advance
 

A:Laptop PSU stopped working

the psu from latitude E6410 is identical to the one in inspiron 6000. 19V and 4.62A. they should work.

You didn't state but to be clear, is this a USB external drive?

In general, you can skim through See Troubleshoot: Windows Won't Recognize Your USB Hard Drive

but sounds like you'll probably need to run data recovery. The Guide isn't updated yet to describe PC Inspector for data recovery (seems to be even easier to use then TestDisk). Click their Help button in the tool and then follow their 4 steps. Others have used TestDisk (most with success). Tho make sure that TestDisk detects and reports the correct disk size before you decide to have it attempt recovery

Hi,
I am thinking that maybe that is a 64bit, if so then you are having a driver conflict, i suggest that you make sure you have the right drivers from the Dell website for your Laptop, or check you Even viewer logs to see what could be the cause of that problem.
If that isn't the problem, then lets us know...

Hi everyone ...
Can I pick someone's brains again please?
I have a Netgear router (WGR614UK) which, until recently was chatting away quite happily to my Belkin laptop dongle - usually establishing a strong connection. However, having not used the laptop for a month or so, the connection has now vanished ... and nothing I can do seems to restore it. Have even replaced the original Belkin with another 'Surfing' one. Choosing a wireless network comes up with my 'Automatic' connection (which doesn't do anything 'automatic' until I go searching for it), but then connection attempts show 'Waiting for the network ...' and then nothing else.
If you've seen my previous posts, I must look like (and probably am) a total dummy with these things, but I sure as hell would be grateful for help again.

Hello to all I saw this topic dating back to but it seemed that at DVD stopped DVDs ROM reading CDs Sony Vaio and made home that time the drives were not working were stopping That is not my issue Before suggested I have tried what was recommended then uninstalling the drive and removing lower and upper in the registry sorry cannot remember what they were Ok here is what I have and what it has been doing for over a year I have a Sony Vaio laptop CR E Vista Over a year ago it just stopped reading home made disks My daughter s wedding disk the disk of my X rays from the Doctor music regardless when put in they were seen as blank Sometimes if I kept putting them in they would be recognized but mostly not I got a cdrom Sony Vaio DVD ROM stopped reading home made CDs and DVDs cleaner used it and it seemed to work for a good while However it is doing it again If I burned the disk on this system before it would read it but I am not sure if that is the case now It makes me crazy I went and got a new cleaner and have done all that I know to do Sony you suck Too many ppl have had this problem My next laptop will NOT be a Sony So if I put a commercial cd or dvd in it works fine Any suggestions Can I clean this sucker any other way nbsp

A:Sony Vaio DVD ROM stopped reading home made CDs and DVDs

In any CD/DVD RW drive, there are 2 'lasers'. One is for reading, the other for writing.
From what you have said, it sounds as if the 'writing' head has lost power, or is failing in some way.
So when you use a commercial DVD it reads perfectly, but when you try to load from the DVD's you burned on that drive, it is unreliable.
The only real answer is to buy a new CD/DVD drive unit. It's very easy to fit, and not very expensive either. I have found also that some CD/DVD drives seem to read 'bought' discs better than others, maybe some alignment differences between manufacturers ?
When you get a new drive installed, you can make new copies of the unreliable discs.
If you don't like the idea of taking the drive out, you can buy a stand-alone CD/DVD RW that will plug into (usually 2) USB ports. Not good on a laptop ! There are some that will use only 1 USB port though. Hope that's of help.
* This is one I have, but be aware that the read/write speed is only X8 on DVD.

A:One month old Acer computer keeps crashing

If it's only a month old and continually crashes, I would be taking it back under warranty, get a replacement. But, does it crash as soon as you are into Windows desktop, or when you open a certain program, or when you try to get on the net?
Does it do the same thing every time, or does it run well sometimes? You can't go checking inside for faulty parts, or your warranty will be void. Tricky.

So my USB ports decided to stop working. I'm using Windows 7 and they were working fine this morning until I unplugged my USB devices and packed my computer, then when I came home, the ports stopped working. I have two ports and I've tried placing three different items (two mice and 1 webcam) in all the ports, no avail. Even the light under my mouse isn't lighting up. I restarted twice and when I go to device manager there are no exclamation marks or anything wrong under USB tab.

I even uninstalled all my USb serial controllers and restarted and they got installed back but still nothing. Then I disabled selective suspend and nothing too. =[
Any help guys? thanks!
 

A:USB ports randomly stopped working on Windows 7

I've noticed that nobody's replied to your post, so I figured I'd try to say at least a little something. I'm not too sure that it'd be of any help to you, but have you checked any settings in your BIOS that might be responsible for the control of it? It's probably a bit of a long shot but it can't hurt to check it out.

my pc stopped working suddenly........ it could be due to lightening .. but i dont see any burnt chips

my friend checked and told me that power is not coming from the cable (the one we connect to the wall socket) later we found out that the fuse was burnt.. after replacing the fuse also the same problem. then we checked the psu and came to a conclusion that it must be the cause for the burnt fuse.

any idea what could be the real cause ?

here is my psu

http://www.fsp-group.com.tw/report/Epsilon_80PLUS_450W.pdf

it has all the lightening and short circuit protection
 

A:Computer stopped working.. PSU? Help me troubleshoot

What protection are you using? Is the ethernet lead (if used) also surge protected?

If the fuse has blown in the lead, and having replaced that (and confirm your mains socket is OK) and it still doesn't work, it could be the motherboard - Assuming your PSU is working.

Its possible the surge has got into the computer by other unprotected means. In the meantime, double check your not getting power from the PSU by fitting it to another computer if you can. It's possible your motherboard is fried, and your PSU is OK - I doubt it though, both probably are.

P.S. I've seen the lightning damage caused by a unprotected router and its ethernet cable into a PC - It didn't matter that the PSU was surge protected, the router wasn't, and neither was the ethernet lead and it took everything out.

A:HP Pavillion DV 6000 stopped picking up wireless networks

Welcome to the club and I don't say that sarcastically; I feel your pain. This is quite a well known problem with HP's DV 6000 series; a series that had MAJOR failures with their motherboards due to poor cooling. Their 9000 series also had epic fails. One tech guy that I know told me that in their shop the wireless card failing was the beginning sign of motherboard issues.

Its not your wireless card per se though. I speak from personal experience as my daughter's wireless connection died as well. I even replaced the card and it still didn't work. I also did everything you mentioned plus I followed HP's instructions. I even contacted them and the cost to fix was rediculous. They even said it most likely is a motherboard issue after I did everything they instructed to resolve the issue.

So to answer your last question: Yes, a USB wireless adapter will work. It did for my daughter and we hope this system will last us till she graduates this coming May.

My Sony laptop has stopped working

Wireless switch is on, but network diagnostics keep telling me to switch it on

During reboot the light goes on and then when fully booted it turns off

I have disabled and enabled the network adapter

I have checked the adapter and the driver is upto date and the system tells me it is working properly

Is there anything else I can check?

Many Thanks
 

A:Wireless has stopped working on laptop

Go to the Device Manager and uninstall the driver for the network adapter. Restart the laptop and Windows should reinstall the driver automatically. See if this clears up the problem. If not, it might have failed. You could try going to Add and Remove Programs (if XP) or Programs and Features (if Vista or W7) and uninstall the LAN driver if one is there and install a fresh driver from Sony.

If none of that works, consider getting a USB wireless adapter.

I knew something would happen my stopped working 22" Switch LCD has in Viewsonic the second I Switch in my Viewsonic 22" LCD has stopped working started considering replacing them LOL It started playing up yesterday when I went to turn it off as was using the other Switch in my Viewsonic 22" LCD has stopped working screen to play Crysis I went to turn it back on once I was done playing and it wouldnt turn on After much messing around pressing the power button it finally turned on I then made the mistake or more my routine of switching them both off along with the PC before I went to bed last night It now won t turn on at all I don t think its the internal psu I m certain its the button itself So my question is how difficult would it be to locate the power switch and would it be replaceable or is it a soldered in job Warranty expired months ago and this was a replacement unit under warranty as well though it was reconditioned and an older generation of my model number Can it be replaced then Fingers crossed nbsp

A:Switch in my Viewsonic 22" LCD has stopped working

A bit of an update on this.

I've stripped the LCD now, as its not under warranty any more, and the switch contact for the on/off switch on the circuit is knackered. It has a totally different feel to it.

Been searching on and off for a couple of days now - Since I have the part number.

I'm now coming to the realisation that Viewsonic play their cards very close to their chests - You can't find anything related to Viewsonic in regards to parts suppliers here or in the US - Its a tad weird to be honest!

I'm getting used to being down to one screen now though, so I think I'm just going to wait and then purchase a bigger LCD later on. Besides which, my newest LCD is a 4th generation version, and the faulty LCD is 2nd generation. The plastic surround is bigger on the earlier model, and the backround colour is also different (the newer 4th gen has a whitter backround), so at times they can look slightly odd, which has irritated me for ages.

Oh well, something else to add to my list I suppose!

Thanks to everyone that took the time to read this thread though.

As the title says my laptops Fan has stopped running, story goes i was minding my own business not paying attention to the fan & i moved to get comfortable when it started making this horrid grinding noise it kept up for about a minute before stopping & turning off, i turned it back on only to hear it again so i immediately turned it back off.

I opened the back up expecting to see something caught in the van only to find i'd have to go run around to find my other screw driver.
So i just closed it back up & now the fan isn't running what so ever, my question is will my PC be fine if i don't torture it with massive streams of pron?

Also it's a piece of **** DELL if that tickles your fancy.

You don't have to get the exact same brand do you? What kind of computer do you have?

You can type the word, dxdiag, in the Run box of the Start menu and click OK. Save the report and then read the text file. Look for "Disk & DVD/CD-ROM Drives" and it will show what you have although sometimes the names don't match the brand.

Hey there everyone! I'm pretty new to this forum but i really need your help.

Earlier today i experience 2 different BSOD erros at different times, and for no apparent reason.

I'm not sure what the reason is for either of them since i just reformatted earlier today. I have the dump file for each of the BSODs. It is attached.

Could anyone possibly tell me what the problem could be? Thanks in advance
 

A:BSODs - (driver is mismanaging system PTEs, page fault in non-paged area)

nothing attached.

A:USB stopped working

Hi

are they an onboard USB, or front panel ones,

Onboard ones can go defective,
front panel ones may not be wired up correctly inside.

Is your board W7 compatible.

My computer froze when i was using it. When i tried to reboot it, it did not start at all...i opened up the chasis and saw the CPU fan not working. Actually it looked as if the CPU fan is trying to spin but something is blocking it(propeller has slight movement). Shops are asking ridiculous amount to just find the fault. Any idea where i could start troubleshooting? I have been using the computer for couple of years without any problem.
 

A:Desktop stopped working

Just staying with what problem you have described, clean the cpu fan with compressed air canister and check its onboard power connector to ensure that its secured in its socket. Also ensure that Heatsink upon which the processor fan sits is properly connected with the processor.

What CPU/Motherboard do you have?

Lastly, if cleaning CPU fan doesn't work you may need to replace it.

Hi everyone I have the Logitech surround sound speakers hooked up to my PC It s the z- version Today I went Suddenly Stopped Speakers Working Logitech to listen to Logitech Speakers Suddenly Stopped Working music and the speakers have stopped working The music is very choppy and the sound will change to different speakers almost as if it s shorting out For instance you ll hear partial sound on the left-front speaker then it ll change to the rear-back speaker and the sound isn t constant I also hear quot pulsing sounds quot coming from my subwoofer and all other speakers like every seconds I ve tried different applications itunes vlc windows media same problem I haven t screwed around with any drivers or audio settings for these speakers I know for a fact it isn t my soundcard as I used headphones on another port and the sound is normal I also have the speakers plugged into a UPS so nothing electrical could have damaged it I m running Windows bit with no sound drivers installed Default windows sound configuration is set up Any suggestions as to why these speakers just suddenly stopped working Help would be greatly appreciated Best regards nbsp

A:Logitech Speakers Suddenly Stopped Working

Well if you plug headphones in and the sound if normal, then its most likely to be the speakers themselves. Is the anyway you can plug the speakers into another PC and see if the problem persists?

My wireless router suddenly stopped working yesterday. None of the 4 computers that were using that router are able to connect to the internet any more. All of the computers say they are getting an "Excellent" signal, but non are able to bring up a web page. The day before this happened we had an additional cable box added to our house and the cable guy said he "rewired" our cable. I don't think he went in the room where the router is. Don't know if what he did could have had any affect on our current problem, but I would really love to have our internet back!!! Any help would be fantastic. Thanks!
PS I called the cable company and they said there is no problem with the modem. When you plug the ethernet cord directly into the computer the internet works fine.

Why? What did he add to the wiring?

my guess is you have a different box between the modem and the original WiFi router.

what are the make/ model numbers of the modem and every box leading to ( & including) the wifi router.

You will need the Admin/Password to the router and I suspect we need to set the IP masquerade address

A:Belkin F5D7230-4 Router suddenly stopped working

All routers have a useful product life. Components in the burn out or "wear out" in three to five years... six if you are very lucky... I don't know of any which have a warranty longer than three years, and most are only a year.
When they stop working, buy another... as this one has "burned out."
Belkin is not a maker or manufacturer as much as it is primarily a marketer... the same models of router products are different in different countries or even on separate ends of the same country.

You will have much better luck with a high end LinkSys by Cisco, and even better luck yet with a Cisco... but then the prices are much higher, as well.

It was working one day, and then the next it wasn't. I've tried all the common fixes, like checking to see if everything is plugged in correctly, looking in Device Manager to make sure the volume is up and there are no "mute" boxes checked. Device Manager says the card is in working order. All of that, but I'm getting no sound. I know the speakers work because I'm running the sound through a Pioneer receiver and when I set it on "tuner" I can hear sound. So that's not the issue.

I'm thinking it's some kind of driver conflict or something, but I haven't added any software lately, so I don't know why things would've changed.

The bottom line is, any help you could give me would be appreciated much.
 

A:Sound on my PC stopped working suddenly

It would be useful to know brand, model, OS, and age of computer.
Have you looked in the device manager for red, yellow, or black flags indicating a driver problem?
If you have driven your computer to high volume for very long you may have "burned out" the sound components. In that case, if you have on-board sound, you will need to install a PCI sound card.

I have a HP Pavillion laptop and the other day I closed the lid, came back an hour later an had no internet access. I know its not the router because I grabbed my wiles laptop and set them side by side at the ssame table and her worked just fine.

Here are some steps I have already tried:

turned off and on the wireless switch a few times - no luck

went into device manager and deletedd the hardware for the wireless. Restartedd the computer, vista reinstalled the hardware automatically - no luck

shut down the computer for a few hours hoping this would hekp. - no luck

I'm baffled and am not very good at this stuff. Please respond like your talking to a 5yr old. I know, embarrassing, but true.

Laptop internal wireless cards are known to fail. Try attaching a usb wireless device and see if you can connect

So I flashed the bios shut my from flash computer stopped and Upgrade posting bios computer down replaced the cpu and added a new hard drive today When I tried to start it it did not work it just showed a black screen It didn t even post so I got worried and tried putting the old cpu back in and disconnecting the new hard drive and it still did not work After a bit of time I figured it must be the bios because i never tried starting it after I flashed the bios i just went straight to putting the new components in I even tried another monitor to make sure that hadn t failed Upgrade and bios flash stopped computer from posting for some reason After a few hours i tried starting it again and it went to an odd screen which I think is the post screen but it skipped the one with the gigabyte s series logo It said some things about looking at IDE devices but couldn t do anything but it did let me go into the bios and Upgrade and bios flash stopped computer from posting look around I couldn t see anything wrong but I set it to optimized defaults anyway and it started normally but when I tried restarting the optical drive just kept making noises like it was looking for something and I even tried opening it and putting the windows disk in but it just kept skipping over that So I waited a while and checked it periodically but nothing happened until now when it just started again and yet again it skipped the normal gigabyte S series logo thing but it started fine I still have the new hard drive disconnected the different monitor connected and the old back in place If I remember correctly can t you take that watch battery out and put a penny in its place then wait a few minutes I have noticed that for some reason there is a windows update and I can t seem to stop it so I will flash the bios with the latest atbios utility and leave it on hoping that the windows update does not restart it or at least that if it does it will boot fine I have another computer I can use to check this thread if anything does happen All my system specs should be on my profile and my upgrade was to a phenom x with a western digital gb black mb cache which I only added and did not use to replace the older ones My motherbaord is a gigabyte m sli s rev I know this is horribly written but I just wanted to get it posted as fast as I could in case something happened nbsp

A:Upgrade and bios flash stopped computer from posting

I'm sorry if this is considered a double post, and sorry for making the first post so awful I know a lot of people seem to hate that.
So I took out the cmos battery then after a few tries I got it started and reverted from the FHk bios to FHe and it started just fine except it did say post error and then had the option to set it to default, so I'm guessing it was just the bios flash not the hardware.

I need to try to restart it again and see what happens but if it works then I have a new problem, Gigabytes site says I need the FHk bios to use the 720 but now I am afraid that the FHk bios wont work for some reason. What should I do? Should update the bios to the new version and hope it works or is it some kind of Gigabyte conspiracy to make me get a new motherboard?
