Preferred Solution: Uninstalled a potentially important program

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.)

I think you've uninstalled the Qualcomm software which is for internet connection. Windows updates requires internet connection to download the updates, that's why the updates failed.

One of my hard drives just failed after years of reliable service. A lot of valuable information was lost.

To avoid this in the future, it would be helpful to know just how old a drive is to know when it's time to be replaced.

Is there a program that can tell me when I drive was manufactured?

A:A program that shows Manufacture date?

Drive age doesn't really have much to do with 'drive failures'. Time in service increases the risk, but it's not a defining factor either.

The HDD should have a sticker on it showing date of manufacture. I don't know of a program.

Recently sound has not been coming through my speakers, so I tried to plug in headphones and headset but no further luck. I then went into control panel then sound and check the settings on my playback and nothing was touched or muted etc. I then went to the Speakers and Headphones in sound right clicked and pressed test and it said "The device is being used by another application. Please close any devices that are playing through this device." but no other applications that I could find that would be using it. My prediction is that having no internet protection for a while and downloading off the internet has caused a virus to cause my audio to become mute, if this is so how would I be able to find this application causing it. AVG isnt picking it up.

A:No sound caused by a Virus/Program?

Broni, from the Virus and Malware Removal forum doesn't think it is malware related.

I have downloaded a program called Anomos, it tells me please forward your ports so the program can work, 5061. Ok so I go into my century link modem and it wants a ip address to forward the ports what ip address do I enter?

A:How do I port forward the Anomos program?

The LAN address of the system you want the data to go to.

It must always be the same address, so you need to make it so using
Address Reservation on the router OR a static address on the target machine (not recommended for laptops).

I have a laptop with the Realtek high definition audio and Dolby home theater installed. After the latest win8.1 update the Realtek program has stopped forwarding the sound through the Dolby program (which it managed to do perfectly before the upgrade). I tried using Viper4Windows too but that didn't work eighter. Is there an option anywhere that will allow me to fix this?

This is not intended to be a sob story but I just want you to know what it is all about. I have a niece that is slowly deteriorating from MS. She does not have much that she can do anymore but one of her enjoyments is playing a game called WSOP Challenge (world series of poker challenge). Right during Christmas the game stopped working and Sprint can't seem to help her get it back on her phone. She called me asking if I knew what to do and I tried but could not find any info on what she needed to do to get it working. Sprint told her to delete it from her phone which was not a good idea because I have found no where that she can download it from and put it back on her phone. Would anyone be so kind to give me some advice on how to fix her problem. Time is not on her side but what she does have left I want it to be very enjoyable. Thanks so much for your help.

Hello all, I wanted to get some opinions one what parts are most important to upgrade for improved workflow and video preview for video editing applications like sony vegas. Basically I edit bluray video for amv's (animated music video's) and my preview window and basic workflow speed can be choppy and not quite as smooth as I want it to be. Does CPU have biggest effect with this kind of stuff (and if it does, would you suggest a hexa core CPU or would something like an i7 4770k quad core CPU be enough for editing bluray footage)? or is computer RAM important? I also heard that Doing something with your hard drive can have a greater effect in improving these things. Any thoughts appreciated! Also, assume money isn't a factor, just want what performs better.

A:Important parts for improving workflow in video editing?

RAM + a fast CPU are large parts of a video editing build. RAM and a good CPU help speed up the rendering process, but they dont necessarily affect the video render quality. I think the GPU is the issue.

What are you current specifications? What is your price range for the new machine?

As well as other specs, like the ms and such. I bought a mouse from China on Ebay for about 8$ new. The specs say its the same as the death adder, but I have my doubts. I am sure its still a good mouse for the price, but Im curious how good is it? I wanna know did they copy paste the death adder specs or did I really get a smoking deal on this mouse?

here is the mouse btw

I was going to go for this Seagate 500GB ext. hd but then saw this one for $10 more it has 1TB of space and (according to the customer reviews) has a standard USB 3 cable. I found the same model on bestdirect for less. I have ordered from Memory Express who do price beats but they told me the product is discontinued, probably because of the new Go Flux line. Is this true and does it matter? The person at Memory Express directed me towards another Seagate hd of a different model. I checked out the reviews on newegg and it has 3 stars and says they have discontinued it.

How important is it to get a non-discontinued product (and why is there a discrepancy between retailers as to what's discontinued?) and how important are the customer reviews?

When I got a new printer, I went to my laptop and try the find printer thing when I clicked on it the window pop up and then another one that said "The Active Directory Domain Service is currently unavailable." Please someone tell me what and how to fix this

A:Can't use the find printer program thing

Follow the directions that came with your new printer. Usually you have to first install the driver from the included disc or their website, then at some point you're instructed to plug the printer in with USB cable and power it up. It should then be recognized in Device Manager and show up in Control Panel/Printers, where you can set it to your default printer.

I am helping my uncle built a computer and looking for a gpu which can handle 5 monitors and still have enough power to run a 3d modelling program (dont know the name of it) any ideas?

A:Graphics card for five monitors and a demanding program

Running five displays in 2D isn't really demanding at all, its just a case of connectivity. For example, a HD6870 should handle six displays (at least mine does), but dependant on the 3D modelling performance required it changes things dramatically.

You need to consider several things:

1. The connections the displays will actually use, as you'll be using DisplayPort connectors if your adding that many, so converters will need to be considered if the displays don't natively run them.
2. The exact usage of the computer. If its just 3D, and only that, commerical grade (workstation) FirePro GPUs are more than likely a better alternative.
3. Whether you want to run two GPUs in SLI/CF in order to achieve the required capacity to run these displays.
4. An important one...Budget!

It used to be the case (if I remember correctly) that Nvidia GPUs were better optimised for the sort of work your uncle would be using them for. Not sure if its the case now.

Workstation GPUs will have drivers specifically optimised for 3D modelling work, and will be better supported. These are bloody expensive though.

If you want a good all-round GPU with serious horsepower for 3D modelling I'd go with something like a GTX580, or the new GTX680. One problem though, they're both limited to four displays (580 might be three only), so to run five, you'd need a second one in SLI.

Either that, or ditch the fifth display and just run four with a GTX680.

I'm taking a class right now and the teacher keeps alluding to the fact that it doesn't matter how fast the CPU is. For example the CPU could be sitting there ideally. Could someone elaborate, is there no point in getting a faster CPU if the bus is too slow?

A:Why is CPU not as important as people think it is?

I don't really understand what he is suggesting. There are too many variables. What CPU? What is the bus speed? What applications are in question? What do you mean by

"For example the CPU could be sitting there ideally"

There is a specific software that i would like to install to the Server ans to let it run on all the computers on the network. So,instead of installing it on each computer (time consuming) i need a way to install it on the server and let it run on each other computer.

A:Installing program to server

Copy software to a folder on the server
Share the folder over the network
Map the folder as a drive on the workstations
Run the software on the workstations.

This is pretty basic networking.

The software has to be set up so that it can be shared in that way. In most cases you will probably have to install the software on the hard drive and share just the data files over the network. The application has to have that capability.

I use my TI-82 grapics calculator quite a lot (usually for programming), and I'm aving a problem with the variables, primarily the "Y" variable. When I put a store command for a real variable in a program, the calculator stores "0" to it no matter what. The problem usually occurs during the first 30 seconds of program execution. I try entering the command several times, and it still doesn't work right. What I'm mainly worried about is the fact that it hasn't done this when I first bought it.

Will it get worse?
Can I do anything to fix it?
Does this indicate a serious problem elsewhere?

Hey guys,
I have an HP pavilion dv2915nr laptop and I broke the screen so I removed that and hooked it up to a spare monitor.
Everything was going great until I accidentally knocked out the video cable when I was using the computer and now, every time I turn on the computer, the display shows there's no signal right after the windows loading screen. It'll only work in safe mode or if I uninstall the display adapter driver.
I don't really know what happened - I hope I don't have to replace the graphics card or anything. Please help!

I am thinking of getting an AMD athlon 3800+ dual core with 2.0 GHz instead of my current CPU which is the 3400+ 1.99 GHz.

The only benefit seems to be the fact that it is a dual core and it is a 3800+, but it has 0.01 more GHZ, so if I am playing a game like supreme commander is this processor worth getting?

A:Which quality of a CPU is most important?

What is the model of your mother-board? A new CPU would really help you, but your current integrated graphics chip is pretty bad. So a video card would noticeably improve your gaming performance. Although, I'm not quite sure which type of card is best suited for your mo-bo.

If your computer has a PSU of at least 300 watts, then here's a decent card:

I have a VAIO VPC computer with Windows 7 operating system. I was installing the software for my Palm TX Organizer, and when it came to connecting the device to the computer, I received the message that the system was locating the drivers for the device and then informing me that no drivers were available. When I tried to sync the device through the palm program it will not recognize the presence of the device. I uninstalled and downloaded a new version of the program from the Palm website encountering the same situation when I connected the device to the computer.

I have also experienced this same situation with the installation of Tunes Plus to allow for the uploading of my iPod music onto iTunes on the computer, I continually get a device not present message.

Can anybody out there throw some light on this problem?

A:Program fails to recognize devices after installation

Windows doesn't need drivers to detect a Plug and Play device.

So forget about drivers for the moment....

1) You don't say how you connect the device to your compute. I'll guess USB???

2) Then start with the basics: Are you hearing the USB ding/dong sound affect as you should when connect / disconnect a USB device????

Recently, I've had problems with some games crashing. I searched for a solution on the web and one recommendation was to uninstall the graphics accelerator which I did. Now those same games are playing fine without crashing. I had previously uninstalled the graphics drivers and reinstalled them. That didn't help.

Why would some games play fine without the accelerator? What do I sacrifice by not having the accelerator?

Specs: Win xp, Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS, 910 GML Express, graphics accelerator 900.

Thanks in advance for any responses!

A:Uninstalled graphics accelerator

If I understood you correctly, when you restart the computer Windows automatically reinstalls the graphics accelerator and the graphics driver which must have cleared up your problem. The graphics accelerator is another name for graphics card or in your case onboard graphics. The graphics accelerator is hardware so cannot be removed physically by software uninstalling. If your graphics "card" was truly gone, you would have no video output at all.

My network has 2 PC's, one of which had XP installed when purchased. The other had Windows 98, and has been recently upgraded to XP. I want to be able to access any file from either machine. On the PC that was upgraded from Win 98, I have set Drive C to be shared. The other PC can access any file, including those in the Program Files folder. It can, for example, run PaintShop Pro across the network, even though it's not installed on that machine.

I have set Drive C on the other PC to be shared, but I cannot access its Program Files folder from the (former) Win 98 PC. I get "Access Denied" messages.

Does anyone know how to allow complete sharing of all files?


A:How do you access "Program Files" folder on a network?

You need to set both share permissions and the file permissions on disk.

No need to specifically share the drives BTW. Windows automatically enables administrative shares in the form of c$ d$ etc.

my C drive is only an 80G and right now 60G of it is full of apps. I rather like these apps and I don't want to uninstall them. Is it possible to actually move the whole folder to my terabyte and just fix the shortcut paths as needed, or is it more complicated than that?

A:Is it possible to move your entire program files folder to a seperate volume?

Hi BlackScarlet

Yes, it is possible to do that. It's called ghosting. Acronis and Norton Ghost are two of the best programs on the market for doing this. Good luck!

After booting windows xp fine, and coming up to the desktop, the desktop is stable as well...

however when any program is launched for more than few seconds (trillian, itunes, ut2k4), the computer simply reboots without any warning

tried another HD... same problem. any ideas what could cause this?

A:Windows xp continually reboots after any program is launched for a few seconds

Is your pc overclocked? If so, downclock it a little to see if that helps. Have you run a decent virus scanner? A virus could certainly cause the problem you describe. And finally, open the case up and get rid of all dust as this can make the cpu, mobo, graphics card, and memmory overheat which could also cause the problem.

Hope that helps. Rik.

I've seen a number of great deals on monitors in the 19"-24" widescreen categories, but invariably they have contrast ratios of around 1000:1. How important is contrast ratio? What would you consider to be the sweet spot for price and performance?

A:How important is contrast ratio for LCD displays?

It really depends on how crazy you are about stuff like that.

It literally is the ratio of the brightest pixel to the darkest pixel. I expect that the increasing ratio is sort of a logarithmic function on how much you notice (ie - you'll notice the difference between 500:1 and 1000:1 a lot more than 2000:1 and 3000:1).

I think that probably every monitor out there will look fine for regular computer use and most gaming. I think where it really becomes important is if you watch a lot of movies with the lights off.

I am considering Acronis, Ghost, and Bootitng. They all make bootable CDs or floppies but I dont think any of them will recognize my RAID array.
I have an ABIt VT7 with a motherboard VIA RAID controller. I don't need to see the contents of the RAID partitions just the presence of the drive and the partitions to select for backup. I know this is possible since when I boot, the BIOS shows the raid drives present, but when Acronis boots it does not see them. Any suggestions is appreciated - but please no lectures on failure rates.

Thanks - Lee Gordon

Me too,

I purchased Acronis based solely on the consensus of another chat that it would see the disk(s) image and not the independent drives. It doesn't. Even though the bios sees the raid array. Windows sees it only under the device manager but not under file explorer.

Similar for part magic (ver 7 ?), and ghost. Maybe there's a later version of these programs which works. I am trying to move an image to the raid but the problem is the same regardless, namely hardware raid on the 680i is not complete and additional software is required to see the image and not the individual drives.

I too am very interested in this problem.

I'm sure it can't be that high. Are th "Core" and bios ones that are correct?

A:Odd Difference Between BIOS Temps and Program Temps

I'd trust the BIOS temp reading. It should be more accurate than Speedfan or Everest.

BTW, how good is the AC Freezer? I may buy one for my future CPU...

I'm new to re-authoring media, but I recorded a good program the other day and wanted to grab a short 2 minute segment to e-mail to a friend.

I don't intend to infringe on any copywright laws or call it my own, just want to share something I thought was cool.

Is it possible to extract a short segment of a program? If so what do you reccommend I use?

I am having a problem with the sensor that reports the fan spead on the CPU fan on my computer. what happens is the fan speed is fine for a short time and then goes to a - # sometimes -3000 other times it may be -300 and then it will go back to normal. is there a way to fix this? by the way the tempt for the processor is 36c. and stays close to that at 100% usage which I do not get that much. and yes I have uninstalled the program and reinstalled it.

Will it work correctly to map an NTSF partition to program files?

I am planning on putting my applications on a drive seperate from the OS,

If I can map the seperate drive to to program files on the main partition it will make it easier to install my software.

I did play with this idea when I first installed a 40gb slave drive (my main drive being a small 2gb) in one of my first ever PC's andyes it worked for me, most programs lets you choose the install path, so instead of c:\program files\..... I chose d:\program files\.... , I found there were the odd one or two programs that insisted on being installed on the C: drive, but on the whole it is possible to use an alternate drive.

I never tried it with a mapped drive however, but seeing as how mapped drives are treated as a physical drive then there should be no difference.

I am looking for a program that will completely wipe data and info from my External USB Hard Drive. I tried to use Darik's Boot and Nuke, but they said that it does not work for externals/USB. Is there a program that will function like Darik's Boot and Nuke so I can wipe all data beyond the point of recovery?

Thanks for your help

A:USB HDD Wipe Program?

Any disk wiping software that does work with USB?

If you have a unixoid OS then the disk wiping functionality is built in in the form of the dd command. So you could use any CD Linux like INSERT or Knoppix. They come with specialised disk wiping utilities too I think.

In Windows, any disk wiping program should work with external drives too.

Having read the "Radified Partitioning Strategies...." thread I have finally come a long way in understanding the need and essence of proper and smart partitioning of drives...(oo how I lived in the dark ages)

However I can't figure out where to place the more demanding part of the program file folder; Should it be on the second partition of drive 1 (first beeing OS) or the second partition of drive 2 (first beeing operating system page file).

It seems logical in some way to put it on the second drive, as far as efficiency goes; drive 1 runs OS while drive 2 is smoothly running Programs, but this I am not sure of . I would definately like get the most out of Photoshop (working 100 mb files) - and Premiere in the near future.

Any tips will be highly appreciated !

A:Program files; on separate partition or on separate drive?

You should differentiate between programs themselves and the files you are working on. The program files are loaded only once - when you start it up (or when you activate some subsystem), your documents are accessed more often - every time you save or load them.

How much are you going to use that swap file? If not that much (have plenty of RAM), then I would put the PS scratch files on the second disk with the program itself installed on the OS disk. PS end files (the images themselves) to the second partition on the first disk.

Hello Guys I was so confused a few days ago after solving two problems with different computers with just a cable issue do you know any difference on the IDE cables besides the little plastic guide in the middle of the cable I can t really tell why but the problems I had is that I can t read any dvd from a dvd-rw unit so I test the unit in a dif PC and it works so later on just change the cable and the unit works it s important cables? How are the weird to me because the same cable works good for How important are the cables? a regular How important are the cables? CD-Rom unit but this IDE cable besides it was brand new was kind of old but I can t tell the difference by just looking at it is there really How important are the cables? a big differente between the new IDE cables and the old ones same happen with a HDD I took out the jumper from the HDD and it works put it back and PC freeze change the cable and works with the jumper back I ll appreciate any information that you could provide Thanks wave nbsp

A:How important are the cables?

There are different cables. 40 wire ones for ATA 33 devices and 80 wire ones for ATA 66\100 devices. both though have the little plastic guide in the center. are you sure this wasnt a floppy cable? they look alot like IDE cables but dont have the guide int he middle.
