I.E. not responding

Q: I.E. not responding

I am running Windows 7 on two machines. Win 7 Pro on my laptop, Win 7 Home premium on my PC.

When browsing on my PC it is forever Locking up with the message "Internet Explorer is not responding" and I have to close the program to continue.

While this has happened on my laptop it is very rare.

I have scanned the PC with both Malware bytes and Eset Home Security with nothing malicious found.

Can anyone suggest what to do to cure it?

Preferred Solution: I.E. not responding

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: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.

My Buffalo HD which is actually a WD 500GB Hard drive. I opend it up and connected via SATA adapter but still the problem persists. I checked the drivers. Looked for clicking noise as in dead hard drive but none of those problems seems to be there. Also I tried formatting it but was unable to do so. Can anyone tell me whats the cause? It still may be the head problem but its not clicking as a dead hard drive does. It also seems to be spinning just fine but can't get to the root of the problem. Does anyone knows whats the problem?

A:Hard Drive Not Responding

Could be some issue on the PCB. Suppose if you were really dedicated to getting your data back you could buy the same drive off eBay or wherever and swap the boards. That may be more difficult to do since Buffalo may not have stuck to WD the whole time OR WD supplied a special series of drives to Buffalo. Check the model numbers to be sure before going that route.

I suspected I had malware, but went through many steps on the other forum topic to have the same problem of internet explorer not responding. It will not load any webpages. I've done a repair install of Windows 7 SP1 and all the critical/important updates have been installed. I am using IE9. Any ideas what could be causing this problem? It seems to have started about a week ago. Google Chrome doesn't seem to be affected, but sometimes it seems resources are being used by something else. That is why I suspected a virus or malware. Any suggestions? Could this be a hardware problem?

When in safe mode, Windows is not using the graphics card driver. While it is in safe mode the graphics card is still being used. If it wasn't, you wouldn't get any display at all.

Download the current AMD/ATI graphics driver that is compatible with your operating system. Then uninstall the old graphics driver from Add and Remove Programs (XP) or Programs and Features (Vista and Windows 7). Install the new driver and see if that fixes your problem.

Go here for your driver:

Did you recently install some virtual drive software?

You could try uninstalling the drive through device manager and then rebooting, its certainly not going to hurt and it could be a simple fix. If you installed something like Daemon Tools or VCD then that still shouldn't have happened, but the fix may be a little more complicated.

Hey there!

So here's the thing, yesterday i sat and played som LoL with a friend, and my computer stands under the table so i put my feet on it. I started to wiggle the comp a bit when suddenly the screen started to go yellow-back 2normal-yellow-back again, and then just go black and my screen says something similar like "function unavailable". The card works just fine during the bootup, but as soon as windows is done loading, the screen turns black and i get that goddamned message.

The card in question is a nvidia geforce 9600 GSO
And the motherboard is a ASUS M2N68-CM

At the moment i have to run on the motherboards integrated geforce 7050pv, and that aint fun..

This is a sign that the monitor connector to the computer is loose. It's never a good idea to use a computer for a footrest especially when the computer is running. It is possible that the loose monitor connector damaged the nvidia geforce 9600 GSO video card

Did you check whether or not the monitor was on the right input source? If you're using, say, a DVI cable, make sure you choose DVI as the source; some monitors don't do this automatically. Also, obligatory comment about making sure all power pins are connected to the motherboard; that got me once when I was building a machine.

This seems to be a common problem for the company I work for. On some workstations the mouse or keyboard or both randomly stop working (as if they were disconnected). I tried updating the drivers with no success. Any suggestions?

EDIT: when I suspect the keyboard and mouse is not working, how can I be certain the computer is not froze?

A:Keyboard and mouse stop responding

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

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

Hey, I have been experiencing this problem for a while now, after sometime my usb keyboard would stop responding and then at times I would hear a "found new hardware sound (tun tun?) and it would start working again and when it won't, unplugging it and plugging it back would make it work. It has started to annoy me now, also sometimes it doesn't work on boot up and I have to restart my computer. I've tried installing different operating system too, first xp and then 7 and the problem is still there. My usb ports work fine for other components, e.g my cam, usb soundcard, i even tried changing the port for the keyboard but it would do the same thing and it's only the keyboard that does that, i've tried a different usb keyboard too. same problem.
Any ideas/help would be appreciated!

A:Keyboard stops responding

Your keyboard is probably faulty, did you spill something in it? If so turn it upside down for a few days. I read you can actually run your keyboard through the dish washer to clean it in one of my college computer repair books, though I have never tried it. If I was you I would take out all the keys and clean it or run it through the dish washer and leave it face down for a day. Perhaps you need to update your keyboard driver, but thats highly unlikely.

your keyboard is likely dirty or dying

Ok so, I was playing an online game on my HP Pavillion 6500 when suddenly a purple screen with pixilated squares appears. I reboot the laptop and now when it's starting up all I see is strange pixilated screens (usually black, with squares) similar to TV static. It does not respond to any input and doesn't get to the windows logon screen. I have tried connecting the laptop to a external monitor, but it seems that the laptop doesn't recognise it.

I'm just wondering what hardware part has died and what the problem might be?

A:Laptop suddenly has strange pixilated patterns & not responding at all

It sounds very much like your onboard graphics chip has died to me. Unfortunatly with laptops it usualy is a matter of replacing the whole motherboard.

You could try a cmos reset, which i think is done by removing the battery and holding down the power button for 5 or so seconds. Also make sure there is no dust or crap blocking any of your vents, and a good blast of compressed air cant hurt.

Hey... So I'm running Windows 7 on my laptop. A few times each day, if i go to play something new or play after it has been paused, I'll hear a click from the speakers and I'll have no sound. I close WMP and try to play it again and it says that the "execution failed" after a couple minutes of trying. After that notice pops up I can play anything like normal. Along with this Windows Explorer (as in the bottom toolbar) becomes non-responsive. I close it and start it again. I replaced my harddrive and I thought that would fix it. But it seems as if the same problem has carried over. If you have any ideas I'd sure appreciate it. Thanx

Hi I'm on XP and have had wireless broadband for ages until yesterday morning it suddenly wouldn't connect.
It can detect the network and other networks in the area but cannot connect to the internet. I've done the following things:

Pinged my IP, which came back with this: Request timed out four times, Packets sent=4, Received=0, Lost=4 (100% loss)

Is something blocking it? Could it be a trojan or virus? I've got both Kaspersky and Adaware, currently scanning, but I'm not an *****, I never download or click on anything dodgy, I only checked my email on friday night before turning it off. I don't know what could have changed overnight.

Hi recently I bought a new keyboard with multimedia keys Model Microsoft Wireless keyboard All the keys are working fine I also installed the latest drivers and Intellitype Pro to the correct OS i m using However when I press the mute unmute button the volume bar shows up but does not actually mute It seems like it flashed the mute symbol for half a second but it still just stay unmute I tried using the default Microsoft sound driver and the latest Realtek sound driver but still no luck I also tried turning HID services on and off but still the same BUT I remember the mute button WORKING until a few days ago I don t know if it is due to the Windows Update or something to do with my motherboard driver or something else The roll back driver option is greyed out in Device Manager so I don t assume that is the problem I m currently using Windows Ultimate bit Microsoft Wireless Keyboard YAMAHA speakers YST-M really old model button, but does Mute not Keyboard mute? Responding to Realtek High Definition Audio Driver ASUS M A -EM Motherboard I m really confused because if all the multimedia keys are working then it should not be a driver problem If the volume up down is working then it should not be speaker problem It is ONLY the mute button that is not working Thanks in advance for any replies nbsp

I am working on a pc running XP pro that has a bad PS. I took one out of another working pc with same voltage values and installed it. When I plug it in and turn it on, I get not response whatever. I put a multimeter on some of the molex connectors, and no power. The mother board looks ok(no bulges on Capacitors), but the system may have other problems since it has been down several months and I don't know any history. What should I look at next? Thanks in advance.

A:Power supply not responding after install

I would think that you might at least have 12 volts at the fan plugs. No?

Does the PSU still show the correct voltages with it disconnected from the board. If no, then the board ruined the supply.

I inserted a USB memory stick into my Powerbook G4, and it was fine, as always. Here's the problem: someone yanked it out while a (Word) file was still up and running. I don't think it got damaged, it wasn't a particularly forceful yank. Now I stuck it back in, and the computer's not reading the stick. The icon isn't showing up, and I can't get to my files.
Is the file lost? How do I get the stick to work?

bummer! most likely you lost the partition on the stick and everything on it

can you access a PC? use the Disk Mgr to verify the health of the partition.

It could be the graphics card since the 8 series of nVidia cards had a manufacturing issue, it could be a faulty power supply or it could be a loose processor heatsink causing the PC to overheat and turn off.

Hello I recently encountered this problem that I can only assume is caused by my graphics card (ATI Powercolor X1950 Pro). Sometimes when I'm playing a graphically intensive game, all the sudden the monitor will turn black and the light will start blinking. I can only assume that this happens because the monitor thinks it isn't receiving a signal anymore.

I thought that this might be heat related so I ran rivatuner along with 3dmark06 and the problem happened at 89 degrees Celsius. I don't think that temperature is too hot but I'm not sure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, after a power supply failure I had recently, something stupid has been happening. In CS:S, certain maps (De_dust, cs_italy, de_inferno, etc.) have been, as soon as they load, my computer changes resolutions to a very low one, and shows the error saying that nv4_disp has stopped responding.

I then went and played NFS: MW for a little while, and as soon as I start a specific race near the start of the game, that happens.

It did this on the old hard drive, and I just formatted a new one and put XP on it, and it does the same darn thing. Any ideas? I have tried updating GPU drivers, and installing DX9.0c.

Heres some links you may find useful.

It's says that it is caused by not completely uninstalling your old drivers before updating to the new ones. I also learned that you should probably reinstall DirectX 9.0c. So completely uninstall your Video drivers and DirectX and then reinstall them.

Does a full size logitech usb mouse or Microsoft USB mouse work. The Targus has always been a trouble-prone mouse with many reported failures, as have some other "miniature mouse" products sold for laptops.
Have you tried cleaning the USB ports with called air, a Q-Tip and 90% alcohol?

Hi, ALL,
Here is my problem.
I have a thumb drive. Everything worked fine until yesterday.
Yesterday I came home, put the drive in the USB slot of my DELL laptop, and... nothing happened.
The drive has a light on top. Usually it is blinking when it goes through mounting process, but not yesterday.
I tried one of my desktops computers, but with the same result...

Is my drive dead?

Thank you.

One other thing I want to mention is:
The drive is not recognized even in Linux. I tried to put it in the USB device of Linux box, and nothing happened. The light on it is still dead.

The drive itself has an 'ext3' partition from Linux's fdisk (type 87). I used Gentoo fdisk and then formatted it using:

mke2fs -j /dev/sdb1

Now is there any software in Linux that can be used to check this stick?

On Windows I was using the ext2fs driver to write on the stick. (ext2 IFS driver).

Thank you.

A:CD drive not responding / PC very slow performance

First off go into display manager, and open IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Click on secondary IDE Channel and go to the advanced settings tab. Make sure it's set for the CD to run at UDMA2 not PIO. Try reinstalling the chipset drivers. Try swapping your cables.

The slowness could be due to virus, trojan, or some kind of malware program. Since the installation is a year old, it might just be too many registry orphans, or too many running processes. Hit ctrl+alt+delete and look at the bottom edge. How many processes are running. Are your temp internet files getting deleted ocassionally? You can go to internet options/advanced tab in control panel. Scroll down and check the box that empties the temp internet files each time the browser is closed. You still will have to delete cookies manually. Also try defragmenting your hard drive and paging files. Get a program like CrapCleaner and clean up all your old log files histories etc.

It could be your memory is having a problem. I don't have enough info to make a guess as to whether it is the right or wrong memory, or whether he reset the memory cas latencies, interleave settings etc. in the BIOS correctly when he changed the memory.

If the CD needs to be replaced, just get a cheap one from the store. You don't need to buy it from eMachines. The curved face plate that raps around (if it's a typical emachines case) snaps off and should fit on the new one.

A:Case Front USB Ports not Responding

Not possible unless the motherboard is faulty, which is highly unlikely that only the USB headers would die.

What is more likely is the wires aren't properly seated on the USB headers, they are put on incorrectly, or the drivers in the OS are corrupted and need reinstalled.

Hi kalyani and welcome to the TS forum.

There are a couple of reasons why the keyboard wont work.

But ask yourself the following questions

Can you enter the BIOS, look for a message when you turn the laptop on asking you to "press DEL or F12 or similar) to enter Setup/BIOS, if not then
then keyboard is faulty.

If you can enter the BIOS but the keyboard stops responding when Windows starts up then the drivers are faulty, this can happen.

i was playing Knight Online with my nVidia geforce mx mx 400, when suddenly i started noticing some bad graphics, so i exited the game. when it showed my desktop, it was at 800x600 ( i usually have it a 1152x864) and when i tried to change the resolution back to where it used to be, i got a messege saying that the card was made for an older version of windows. thing is, i havent done any updates lately, and i had run the game perfectly after the service pack2 came out. now i cant see anything when i plug my monitor to that video card.
thnx in advance

ps. i tried the video card on another pc running on windows xp but without the latest updates and the card works perfectly fine.

More system info is needed..
What motherboard was this Vc installed on? You may need to update the chipset drivers.

Hey, I just helped my friend install his new video card. However, now his monitor is not getting a signal. It is just a blank, black screen. When I installed the video card, I am almost positive I was grounded. I tried connecting the monitor back to the motherboard's video card (integrated) but the monitor did the same thing. It is a fairly new monitor and only about a year old PC. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

What video card and motherboard? It could be a dead card or compatibility issue.

While setting up motorola phonetools on my computer, my keyboard suddenly just stopped working. It's a microsoft multimedia keyboard with ps/2 connector. Device manager said something like (device annot start: code 10). I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, and nothing. I know the ps/2 port and the connection to the motherboard aren't fried, since the keyboard still works fine in bios, and the lights are still on. I went out and bought a USB keyboard, and the same thing happened, only device manager showed no roblems with it. I tried restoring the registry, looking for rootkits, and scanning my computer for other luck. Anyone have any suggestions?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

You`ve tried uninstalling the mobile phone tools haven`t you?

Does your keyboard work, if you boot into safe mode?

Have you made any changes to your system lately?

Does win2003 server have the system rollback function like XP? If so, set it back to the last date you know the keyboard and mouse were working.

I have a Dell Latitude CPt.

The integral keyboard will not respond at all.
Touch pad is fine.

An external keyboard fitted to ps2 port works fine.

The laptop has had a new hard drive fitted with a clean install of xp pro.
No conflicts or evident software issues.
There does not appear to be any bios settings which would affect integral keyboard.

Thanks for any help

Hi there,

Here's the story so far. I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro, VGA and Multimedia Audio drivers were missing. Downloaded drivers and installed them. Rebooted PC, but after the Windows XP page begins to load, I was faced with a blank screen. I figured this may have something to do with the drivers. Then attempted to Start Windows from the Last Known Successful Configuration, but keyboard non responsive. Tried rebooting from USB etc. but could not change boot up option as I had no access to the BIOS. I then removed the CMOS battery, then attempted to select F1 key to restart PC but of course keyboard non responsive.

Please help this is beginning to make me go

A:Keyboard Not Responding

Well, have you tried a different keyboard? Get a hold of one from a friend, or neighbor. Your current keyboard could just be dead, it happens.

When I boot up I get a keyboard failure notice. I reboot and windows starts normally but the keyboard doesn't work. I turned off system restore and booted in safe mode and ran Panda antivirus and didin't find anything.Also when I go the control panel keyboard and select keyboard there is nothing there is nothing listed in the device properties. Also, I swapped out keyboards with my other computer and that one does not work on my computer either. Is it possible that Panda is missing something? My operating system is xp professional.

A:keyboard not responding

It could very well be that your motherboard's keyboard PS/2 slot has gone bad. Have you tried using a USB keyboard? I'm assuming when you swapped out with another computer's keyboard that the other one was working, but it won't hurt to test your 'bad' keyboard in your good computer just to check.
Other than that it's not a virus that is giving your keyboard problems, especially if it isn't detected on boot.

i have a microsoft optical usb mouse and up until about 2 days ago it had been working perfectly. Now it stops responding for some unknown reason.

ive tried unplugging it and then plugging it back in but this doesnt always work and more often than not after plugging the mouse back into the usb plug the base of the mouse doesnt light up.

Has anyone else struck this problem? or know how to fix it?


edit: btw im using windows xp pro if that helps.

A:mouse stops responding

First of all, are you plugging directly to the machine or to a hub? I've seen some issues with hubs and some devices not always recognizing properly.....intermittent life yours. Also, have you tried a different USB port on the machine? As well, have you tried another USB mouse to see if it reacts in similiar fashion?

A:Floppy not responding

Go into your Device Manager (right-click My Computer and Select Properties, then look for Device Manager).
In Device Manager click on "Floppy Disk Drives" and look at Properties. At the bottom look for "Device Usage". Now, look to see if the value in the box is enabled or disabled.

Now, since you have been inside the case, check on these. Make certain that your cable is oriented properly. On floppies, the red strip on the cable doesn't always go toward power like on hard drives or CD's since the industry never standardized that for floppies. Make certain any power or signal cables are attached properly. Is your IDE slot on the Motherboard defective. Of course, recheck the drivers you have already been working with. Last, if you can find a "known good" floppy, try that, which will tell you if your own floppy or IDE slot is defective.

That's about all I can think of at this point. Maybe others can add to this.

Hi All,

I presume I have contracted something whilst using Vuze, but I don't know what or how to deal with it.
My computer takes ages to do anything, there are 60-70 processes running at any one time, Internet Exploreris Not Responding, then it IS responding, then Not etc. CPU usage usually very high, often 100%.
I am operating McAfee which finds nothing. Downloaded Ad-Aware and Spybot but both found nothing either. Hope someone can help.

Yours hopefully

If you suspect a virus then the correct forum is the Virus/malware forum where they can help you. Please run their 8 steps first and then post.
I don't believe Adaware and Spybot are on that list.
Was McAfee current with it's definitions?

Adobe Reader works inside of Browsers but will not open a PDF file, it 'Stops Responding'.

After uninstalling, cleaning up adobes crap with a tool they provide then installing Adobe Reader again it worked for three days then stopped responding again.
There are several posts about changing the Protected mode but that can only be done if the Reader is working, its not responding so you can't access the setting.
Edit the registry
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Adobe/Acrobat Reader/11.0/Privileged/bProtectedMode and set the Data to 0

Adobe had me re-install twice then clean by install with a tool they gave me then install again but they never fixed the issue!

Windows 7 x64

A:Adobe Reader Stops Responding

I have similar issues with Adobe Reader, but for me, all it does is just lag a lot while scrolling, but it doesnt stop responding. I have heard of that protected mode fix, but I do not know if it works.

Try this:
1) Download the Adobe Cleaner tool >>here<<.
2) Download the latest version of Adobe Reader, which is 11.0.06, >>here<<. This may help since it seems to me that you are running Adobe Reader 11, not 11.0.06. This release could solve your issues. If it doesnt, I am afraid I am out of options since I am not too familiar with Adobe Reader.

Ever so recently I have been experiencing this annoying error with my GPU. This error more so often occurs when playing games, however, occasionally when watching videos. Whenever I receive this error, my computer freezes for 5 secs and then I am forced to restart the whole game, several times as this error continues to persist numerous times. I've looked all over google trying to resolve this error, trying numerous solutions such as: Refreshing my Windows 8.1 (removing all files), increasing fan speed (even though gpu isn't overheating), closing background applications, installing old gpu drivers in case there was a bug, and many more. Please help me try and resolve this error once and for all as I have been forced to endure this irritating error for months on end.
Thanks in advance!
