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.)

Hi All, I have bought my new laptop HP Envy AE101NX yesterday (25-May-2016). However, when I open HP support center application and recovery applications, where we see the warranty period information it is showing incorrect information. The store supervisor informed me that it is in 2 years warranty period. The information being showin in these apps is 6 Months and that too Start Date : XX/08/2015End Date :    XX/02/2016. This Feb-2016 is already passed. I could not understand how come the warranty is already expired, even though it is for 6 months for some reasons. Can anyone please advise on how to get this fixed? ThanksVamshi

A:Warranty ran out and i only had the laptop less than a year.

The warranty period is one year from original retail sale. Who was the eBay seller?

I purchased me new HP laptop on 2 October, 2016 and when I checked it's warranty status, it showed the starting date as 22 June, 2016. This is wrong and my warranty period must be corrected. I have disputed against the warranty period but have not recieved any reply till now.

A:Got 2 year warranty but it says 1

Hi: The info you are referring to means 1 Year parts, 1 Year labor, and 0 Years on site service. My HP business desktop PC's have 3y/3y/3y.   3 years parts, 3 years labor and 3 years on site service.  In other words, the techs will come to my house to fix my PC for up to 3 years.

Anybody know where you can buy Western Digital hard drives (standard, not SSD) that have a full 5 year manufacturer's warranty?

Seems like everywhere I look now, all you see is these "OEM" versions that have a 2 year warranty.

I want to get one to keep on hand as a backup that I'll format so it'll be ready to go in case I ever have problems with the drives in either of my machines.

Just thought I'd get one that has the longest warranty possible if a 5 year warranty is even still available.

A:HijackThis- msmsgs.exe uses 100% cpu if computer left on for extended period of time

Hi Chris and welcome to TSF.

Is MSN Messenger doing anything special (besides having IM chats) when it reaches 100% cpu usage?

Let's try disabling some programs there to see if it helps.

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following if they still exist and hit 'Fix Checked' after you checked the last one:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] F:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\jusched.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HP Component Manager] "F:\Program Files\HP\hpcoretech\hpcmpmgr.exe"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HP Software Update] F:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Software Update\HPWuSchd2.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "F:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Reader Speed Launch.lnk = F:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\reader_sl.exe

Check and fix ALL the O18 entries below related to Logitech, except for the first line (see below). Leave that entry unchecked:

O18 - Protocol: bw+0 - {00023EC9-21B9-4198-912A-39C403681302} - F:\Program Files\Logitech\Desktop Messenger\8876480\Program\BWPlugProtocol-8876480.dll

I keep randomly having BSOD on WIN 7 x64 when i left it on for long periods of time without using it. Sometimes though rarely, the whole OS will not respond to anything while i'm using and i have little choice but to use the reboot button. I have no idea what causes this issue. This has been happening since i got this computer roughly 1 year plus ago but i didn't really bothered till recently as it's getting more frequent. Was hoping someone can shed some light on to what is giving this issue to me.

System Summary
OS : Windows 7 (64-bit)
CPU : Intel Core i7 870 @ 2.93GHz

A:Random BSOD when computer is left idling for prolong period of time

The crash is due to your Marvell controller drivers for your hard disk. The drivers appear to be corrupted.

First uninstall through Device Manager. Log in as an administrative user -> Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Device Manager -> Expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers -> Right click the Marvell device -> Click Uninstall (Do not hit OK after clicking Uninstall) -> Put a tick in the box to delete the driver software for this device -> Click OK -> Restart the computer if asked.

Download the latest drivers for the Marvell Controllers device: ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS P7P55D-E PRO -> Windows 7 64bit -> SATA ->

My laptop is shutting down after a short period of time.  This started about two months after installing windows 10.   I checked my settings and they are what I want so resetting them probably won't help.  I saw an answer to this problem that read as follows:   What does "remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen'." mean?   I don't see a box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen' with a tick. Open windows Control Panel, open Personalization, click the Screen Saver link in the bottom right and in the following window adjust the 'Wait' time to a more acceptable figure and remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen'.  Click Apply, then Ok to save this setting.

A:Laptop freezes after a short period of time

That model has been out for about three years? How long have you had your Inspiron 6400?

We need to know the configuration, including hard drive size, brand, free space, as well as memory installed.

It could be that the CPU cooling is too full of dust, hair, fiber, etc. to cool adequately... or that the hard drive is failing, or that you have inadequate memory. But it could simply be an infestation that needs to be cleaned out.

Have you tried re-enabling Windows Installer? Have you attempted to use MalwareBytes, SuperAntispyware, ComboFix, Windows Defender, Spy Sweeper, Spyware Doctor, or other top-flite spyware detectors and removers?

Hi been awhile since I last posted. In the house we have a desktop and 2 laptops on the go in the house.The desktop is wired internet while the laptops are run on wifi.This worked fine until my isp UPC upgraded my internet speed from 50mb to 120mb.. The desktop and one of the laptops still works fine but the acus laptop has web access for between 20 mins to 45mins before the wifi drops off and becomes limited access. The wifi needs to be renabled to regain access to the wifi which lasts another small while until it gets limited access again.

The laptop specs are:
Acus K53e
Windows 7 home premium 64bit
intel Centrino N100 wifi adapter
Ram 6gig

At the moment its running for 30 mins then wifi cuts off for a few seconds before starting up again.

Check your BIOS settings and look for a settings about restart when error occur and try to disable it to see the blue screen error. You can also try login in safe mode, by pressing the F8 key while your computer is booting and check if the blue screen error still appear.

My laptop is shutting down after a short period of time.  This started about two months after installing windows 10.   I checked my settings and they are what I want so resetting them probably won't help.  I saw an answer to this problem that read as follows:   What does "remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen'." mean?   I don't see a box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen' with a tick. Open windows Control Panel, open Personalization, click the Screen Saver link in the bottom right and in the following window adjust the 'Wait' time to a more acceptable figure and remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen'.  Click Apply, then Ok to save this setting.

A:G50-80 - Can i go with my laptop on Warranty?

Hi Emyy161 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
You may review this article "Checking for International Warranty Service (IWS)" on how to proceed. 
Take time to review coverage and limitation :
" Lenovo makes no commitment that the same method of service purchased in the original country will be provided in the destination country. Service procedures vary by country, and some service and/or parts may not be available in all countries. Lenovo will use commercially reasonable efforts subject to support capabilities within the destination country to obtain parts. Some countries may have fees and restrictions that apply at the time of service such as packaging, shipping and handling fees "
 
On my end, I tried using the model as some may not be marketed on some regions using the international warranty look up page.  Listed location would include UK and you can call in Lenovo UK 0333-777-3991 for details . 
 
Hope this help answer your query. 
Update us how things go.
 
Regards

whether warranty of a envy laptop purchased in one country will be accepted by another country. For eg, warranty  of a  laptop bought in USA, can be claimed in Asia Pacific. whether the warranty is international for laptop

A:whether Laptop warranty is international or not

Its complicated: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/  For example, a product purchased in country "A" and moved to country "B" receives the current warranty coverage provided by country "B" (if that product is marketed or supported in country B). So it varies model to model and country to country

I have an Acer Aspire 3100 that I got for Christmas in late 2006. I'm still using it to this day with Windows 7 as it came with Windows XP. However, the 60GB HDD it came with is starting to give me trouble so I was thinking about upgrading to an SSD.

Would this be possible with my laptop? I'm not entirely sure of the HDD connection but I believe it may be IDE. If this is the case, then will I need to get some kind of SATA to IDE adapter to use an SSD, or do they possibly make SSD's that can fit my laptop? I can only hope that I am not out of luck when it comes to upgrading the sustainability of my old and faithful mobile computing device.

Thank you for the helpful, yet knowledgeable replies.

A:SSD on 5 year old laptop?

The Aspire 3100 appears to use a 2.5" ATA100 (PATA) drive.

As far as I know, SSDs in that form factor are SATA.

While SATA to IDE adapters appear to exist, I'd be surprised if one would fit in a laptop. (I haven't checked for the 3100, but it may include a proprietary mounting adapter, that would have to be transferred to a replacement HD.) Can't swear that it's impossible.

A quick look at www.newegg.com shows a couple of 2.5" PATA 5400 RPM replacement drives, so at least you can keep the old laptop alive.

Thanks in advance,

A:Laptop warranty transfer from USA to India

If you purchased the system with an onsite warranty (extra cost), yes - it can be transferred.  If you did not, you must upgrade to an onsite warranty at extra cost before it can be transferred.

I'm going to be traveling for the next year, and I'm not taking my laptop with me. I have a Dell Inspiron from August 2006, and someone told me that the internal battery would "die" if I keep the machine turned off for a year. Is someone able to confirm or deny this? Ideally, I would like to be able to use it when I return. I also have a friend who could turn it on for me regularly while I'm gone to keep it working, if that would be good. But if that's an option, I'm wondering how often it should be turned on. Can anyone help with this? I would really appreciate any advice! Thanks a lot!
 

A:Can I keep my laptop turned off for a year?

I would recommend removing the battery if you're not going to be using it for a year. You will need to charge the battery completely when you go to use it again.

A:Why does my 2 year old HP i7 laptop Shuts down

I can add that the CPU fan is working fine, no overheating. And I did a memtest on the RAM with another laptop.. they're ok.. And I'll add that it'll shut down after being on for a hour.. or a few minutes.. the time doesn't matter.. It'll shut completely off when ANYTHING is clicked.. on a dead space.. OR ON A PROGRAM ICON.. doesn't matter where the cursor is. just ONE click anywhere and it'll shut off..

I feel so sad on my G50-80 laptop which dies only after 1.5 years. Starting about 1 months ago it started very slow, after power on it stays in black screen for couples of minutes, then started booting as normal, then that wait time become longer and longer, last Friday it took me about 8 hours to see the boot screen. Sent my laptop to Microcenter for fixing which is a certified fixing provider close to my house, they just give me a call saying it's motherboard issue and the parts could not be found any more. More than 700 bucks for 1 year and a half, how expensive it's! Not sure is there anybody able to help? Maybe even old motherboard, as long as it's working, is acceptable to me.

Which key are you using to activate this installation? You must use the 25 character product key afixed to the COA sticker stuck to the bottom of your laptop.

My laptop has in the last 24 hours become convinced it's end-Aug 2815 and keeps altering the time and date to tell me so. I can change it back, and it "sticks" with the correct time for a short while (but less than an hour) then changes itself back to 2815 again. I've checked for malware and viruses and not found anything, but the problem persists. Any ideas, anyone?

Hello,
I have started to get fairly frequent BSoD on my Dell XPS 17 L10x laptop which I bought just over a year ago now. The error message at the top of the blue screen says "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal". The specs of the laptop are:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
CPU: Intel i5 480m
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GT435M
RAM: 4GB (not sure of specs)
HDD: 320 GB (again not sure of specs)
Sound: On board realtek, although I use an M Audio audio interface as I do some recording work.
I also use an external TV display as a second screen, which is connected using an HDMI cable. Hope this is enough information with the attached dump info.
Thanks in advance

A:Random BSoDs on one year old laptop

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible. Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi,
I've read every post I could find on this so I'm sorry to ask another dumb question but here goes.

I created an access database (volunteer work) which has an autoincrement field to issue numbers to animals taken in at our shelter. My 'boss' (also a volunteer) wants this simple autoincrement changed to a value which begins with the two digit year and then has 4 digits, starting with 0001 which will increment sequentially and restart at 0001 with the new calendar year. Therefore, records will start with 10-0001, 10-0002, etc for this year and 11-0001, 11-0002 for next year.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I just got a new intel Ultrabook off a tiny foreign co on Amazon; and I'm just using it for browsing the internet mostly, but the browsers keep crashing particularly when downloading (small) files like pictures.

I'm worried that the processor may have been tampered with or it's been infected/in a botnet. Can I do anything to check these things?

Also- if not any recommendations on cheap repair shops in London etc?

Thanks,

First, see if the slowness and crashing applications are due to a startup or service conflict: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Keep only your antivirus software set to run on startup. Make sure the antivirus services and the startup software itself are selected to start on boot.

All you need to do is to make a screenshot or scan of the official reciept then send it to the email they are going to provide.

The recovery/restore programs actually throw an error...pretty ugly. So who knows what the heck this is. I have all malware/virus scanning - all of that is running and secure. It did a Windows update the very last time I shut down, and this is how it came up (or didn't!). I am beyond pissed...and hoping that the thing is not trash can material.

I have the "Samsung Media Recovery Disk", and am attempting to reinstall the system that way. As I have not done this before (at least on this laptop) I don't know what my next selection should be. I have attached a screen shot. Can anyone help?

I have this laptop, dell latitude D620, using it from my old days when windows 7 had arrived. The thing is that i am not sure whether windows 10 will work fine on my fore mentioned laptop. And even if it is, what should i expect to loss? as in some files stored on windows partition or the entire HDD will be effected. I guess micrsoft was'nt very clear about the risks they mentioned.highly appreciated for your answer... :)

A:Will Win 10 run fine on a 5-year old Win7 Dell laptop

If you are talking about the free upgrade you shouldn't lose any of your own stuff.Whether the hardware is adequate is a different matter. Some more RAM would be worthwhile.What is the HD size and its free space?Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
