Twice today, my laptop set idle and all of a sudden it started to open windows like someone was hacking the computer. I turned off the wi-fi and it showed windows with scripts opening mainly on the left bottom corner of the screen. I bought this laptop 4 days ago and I've not loaded much on it. Has anyone had this problem? When I turn it to tablet mode it stops. I have videos of it if needed.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/Spectre-x360-seems-to-be-acting-on-its-own/td-p/5681497
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.)
Hello, lately I've been having the strangest of problems:
My mouse doesn't work as it should - sometimes clicking on something doesn't do anything, sometimes it does something different, as if some altering keys were pressed - eg sometimes clicking on a tab in a browser will close it (with left mouse button).
I have tried to locate and update new drivers for my keyboard and mouse, since these are my guesses for what could be causing this, but couldn't find any driver for the keyboard and the driver for the mouse didn't change anything.
My mouse : Trust MI-6970C Laser Mouse
My keyboard: Genius KB-G265
I'm running Win 7 Professional
I can't think of any changes that I did at the time this started happening, so I'm really at loss.
Thank you for any advice on this.
Try them with another computer. If they both work OK suspect either a hardware problem with your computer or a possible malware infection. It could also conceivably be a Windows problem but the other two possibilities are more likely.
My key bord keeps puting difrent things then the letter I press like
h = nhm
n = nhm
h = nhm
b = bgv
m = hm

You may have to remove the keyboard and re-seat the connector into the motherboard connector
Just booted up my computer this morning and got the clicking and spin up and down sounds and the computer wouldn't load up and I kept restarting the computer and trying different things and it just stopped doing it and booted up perfectly fine. My hard drive is a Western Digital and when it was acting strange it said on the post screen that it was a WDC HAWK 10.0 and some other numbers and it never said that before. What could this mean? Why would the hard drive do this and post a weird model name and then go back to the right name and work fine like no issues at all? Event viewer gives no errors and disk check made some corrections to the file system and that's about it. Is the hard drive failing?
Likely. login as admin and run CHKDSK C: /F /R
it will require a reboot to run and it will take a L O N G time to complete the five stages

That's strange, I would have said maybe the Num Lock was turned on but it shouldn't be putting out those keys. Sounds like it could be a faulty keyboard. Perhaps you could try plugging in a USB keyboard and seeing if the problem persists?
I'll explain as best I can but my description skills is not that great.
I noticed ever since I got a slight upgrade to my bandwidth from 10dl 1ul to 20dl 2ul, my online games have been having these weird "hiccups", for instance lets say I'm running left and for a second or two I'll keep going that way and everyone else around me seems to go the way they were running while this hiccup happens like my computer stroked out for a bit then regained itself, this happens randomly it seems so I can't figure out why.

This isn't the 'weird keyboard department', So I'm going to have your thread moved to a more appropriate forum. Please stay subscribed to the thread.
Working on a Gateway ATXSTF MNT 700C, running XP and it has a Gateway FPD1810 monitor. And has a Radeon 9000 Series graphic card.
The sys tray has An ATI Catalyst control center. Only showing a pug and play monitor.
The monitor sometimes shows log-on screen and then goes into "power saving mode" which you can't get out of. Hard reboot.
If the monitor does stay on it almost always prompts to "Active Desktop Recovery screen". If I do that it screen goes to sleep have to hard reboot.
I have changed the connection from PC to monitor. No joy.
Also screen is freezing. Created a Sys restore and click on "Create" and screen froze. Ctrl, Alt, Delete will not work either.
New message - VPU Recover has reset your graphics accelerator as it was no longer responding to graphics driver commands.
Try running this test on the graphics card. Be very carefull with the temperatures.
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
NOTE: Set the alarm to go off at 90ºC. Then watch the system from that point on. If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems. DO NOT leave it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!
- Click "Quit" to exit
You could also try reinstalling the graphics card drivers with the latest version.
One of my computers has been acting up. It's a Compaq Presario 5202HM running Vista. When it's being used, it often make a "whirring" noise that will persist for several minutes. Then it stops, and it's quiet again for awhile. Every once in a while, this will happen when a program (like the anti-virus) is updating, but it happens at other times, too. During the time when the whirring occurs, the computer's performance is extremely sluggish and it's almost impossible to do anything with it. It's defragmented weekly, with Disk Cleanup run at least daily. The diagnostic program that came with it doesn't come back with any evidence of hardware failure. Any ideas?
Check the temperatures of the components in your system using HWMonitor . It could be that the CPU is overheating on occasions which is leading to slow performance.
Hi My Graphic Card is damaged but is usable with some patience I probably is going to use another but I am interested in what happens It is acting a bit strange When i turn on my computer the monitor is blank for some minutes then later an image appear unstable and flickering and even offset the center of the monitor double image and very noisy It graphics card damaged Partly strangely and acting s gradually better until after - hours the image is fully normal When the monitor have been in power save mode or turned off for about hours a little noise and flicker starts again It dissapear again after awhile Also the card do not recognize the monitor anymore Brand model and resolutions I feel like that it is some electric component which first quot power up quot charge up or warm up before the graphics will work correct At the same time it looks Partly damaged graphics card and acting strangely like that my system Ubuntu are testing different setups under Partly damaged graphics card and acting strangely the time This could have another explanation Partly damaged graphics card and acting strangely I will check that I think I did the damage by hotplugging the monitor I also I tested my LCD TV on my graphic card but I don t think that did anything Regards Lars nbsp
What graphics card is it? What make, model and year is your monitor? It sounds more to me like an issue with the monitor. What exactly happened when you tried your LCD TV with it? Did it do the same thing? If it worked fine, you more then likely damaged the monitor while hot swapping it. Its always best to turn the system off when doing those types of things.
Hello again, guys.
The computer we built is running in tip-top shape except for one problem that just started popping up. Whenever I start the computer it will say it is connected to home and an "unidentified network" but will completely cut-off my access to the internet.
I'd do some troubleshooting of my own and I'd find that the network adapter was disabled and the issue wouldn't get fixed until I disabled said "unidentified network" and enabled the adapter.
After that it doesn't bother me much, but I really wish it would stop doing that.
This a wireless adapter, correct? Did you set it to receive your secured router signal?
Ok so heres my problem,
my Samsung HT Z210T Home theater system is wired up and plugged into my digital-in, i also have some crappy $20 speakers plugged in i was using previously but without these speakers the sound card software doesn't recognize that anything is plugged in audio wise.
My soundcard is a creative SB X-Fi soundblaster
I'm running windows 7.
Please help i've downloaded recent drivers, and im completely stumped...
have you tried configuring the digital output of your x-fi? and also set it as default instead of the 'speakers'. also check the output format while you're at it. for 5.1 i think it should be dolby digital live (5.1 surround) instead of 2 channels 48000hz.
Hey all I have a problem with my Asus G VT-X Sometimes when I bring it out of sleep or power it on the screen will either Stay quot dark quot but though not completely dead or unpowered It s just dark colored still lit up like it s in the BIOS CPU LED indicator shows there s activity and I can press my caps key and activate deactivate the images funny really showing not Screen sometimes acting dark, correctly, caps LED or Start shifting between single colors red-- gt green gt blue gt and so on Closing opening the laptop solves this problem only half the time Turning Screen images not showing correctly, sometimes dark, acting really funny off the Screen images not showing correctly, sometimes dark, acting really funny monitor s lighting FN F doesn t solve the problem as reactivating the monitor light just brings me back right to the problem I can still see stuff perfectly on my quot external monitor while Screen images not showing correctly, sometimes dark, acting really funny it s plugged to the laptop meaning the GPU s properly functioning But the laptop screen s been having this problem quite a bit lately Could someone please tell me what the problem is and whether I can hope to hire someone in my area to get it fixed reasonably cheap I d like to keep this laptop as it s been overall solid and reliable aside from this problem Thanks nbsp
Laptop screen problems
If your laptop works correctly on an external monitor, then it points either to the screen invertor, or the ribbon connection between the motherboard and the screen.
The invertor will cost about £18 or $32, but you can re-fit the screen ribbon yourself for free. But it's not out of the question it could be a screen panel
replacement job. Hope that's of some help.
Hi there , ive got a little problem here .
2 Days ago , before i went to bed i shutted off my computer by the good way , aka the the Shut down button on the computer SCREEN .
When i woke up the day after , i tried to turn on my computer . No results = /
My CPU Fan is working , as well as my Video fan , i can feel that my hard drive is rolling too !
That's it . Theres is no beep like usual when the computer starts .
Nothing on the screen , no light in my mouse happening either .
Did anyone ever seen/heard about that ? Cause none of my friends did = /
Any help from anyone would be gladly appreciated
It sounds to me like the motherboard has given up to the ghost. The reason I'm saying this is because your HDD is firing up, your CPU fan is working, and your GPU fan is firing up. The power supply is clearly working so thats not an issue in my mind. The fact nothing is happening on screen and POST is non-existent makes me think something is wrong with the motherboard.
If it was me, I would check the manual for the motherboard and clear the CMOS (I think its called that) or move the jumper to reset the motherboard if it has one.
Then try and boot again.
I'm not 100% certain though, but I'm sure others will be able to confirm or deny my comments shortly.
Monitor goes blank sometimes for no apparent reason. The LCD light starts flashing like its in sleep mode and the only way to get it to come back on is to force a reboot (only happens while gaming). I have updated all drivers and there is no system crash when this happens. If you have any ideas PLEASE let me know

Does this problem occur e mediately when you start up the game or does it take some time before it starts, also by floor shakes you mean the textures in the game are going all crazy like?

Try swapping keyboards. If you can do that or just buy a cheap one for $5 just to see.
You don't need a special driver for the keyboard to use the keyboard unless there are many hotkeys like the MS 5000 for example.
That's my opinion, I think the keyboard my be faulty.:approve:
You can also try this, if the Windows key doesn't work, try [CTRL] - [ESC], it does the same thing.
I have a Media PC set up, with optical audio out from a SIIG SoundWave 5.1 PCI-LP audio card to my Denon AVR 1708 A/V Receiver. The signal is outputting to all of the speakers, but its just a stereo signal that's going to all the speakers.
The audio configuration utility in Windows (I'm running Windows 7 Beta) thinks that its outputting to a 5.1 channel device. There are buttons you can press for each of the speakers, and the front left and front right work just fine. But when you press the center, rears or subwoofer, nothing happens.
I am not sure if this is an issue with the receiver itself, or if its the computer. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
I think you should dig into soundcard driver settings, not in Windows native sound settings.
By the way, does your soundcard driver officially support Windows 7?

You need to turn off (disable) floppy in your system Bios
When you first turn on your computer you should notice a prompt like "Press DEL or F2 to enter Bios Setup"
Once in Bios Setup, locate floppy and disable it
Then Save and Exit (ie F10)

Hey I think there is something wrong with my card. I can't watch videos but video games work just fine, this started yesterday. Whenever I try to watch a movie i just get a blank screen, but sound works and it plays for about a minute, after that my computer lags a lot. I've tried all kinds of players, i've used Windows Media Player, VLC, Core Media Player, and i get the same result. This is getting really frustrating someone please help! Did i destroy my card? I have an ATI Radeon X700
Maybe you don't have the correct codecs for it? Try CCCP.
Hello My HTC apache screen is acting the goat Basically if you can imagine the windows mobile password screen it has the numbers - arranged trom top to bottom in rows of three with clear and at the bottom clr Now imagine this when i tap the i get a but when i tap i get a one and when i tap i get nothing unless i push hard if i want to get the correct numbers without pushing hard i have to push the ones next to them so for a for a this is getting really annoying and it is not just on the password screen Everything seems to be offset slightly to the left I have done extensive Googling but found nothing and have tried both hard and soft resets to be basically useless I have tried everything short of replacing the screen Oh and alignment won t work either because the screen is offset and i cannot physically get at at point to touch them Sorry to waffle on but has anyone encountered this problem or has a solution for me It may just be time for an iPhone Thanks Allan Loveday nbsp
Use some canned air like Dust Off to clean the keyboard, while holding it upside down. I expect some crud in sliding around under those keys.
Ok, So basically it crashes at about 17% or SO EVERYTIME.I went to get new CD-Rs to see if that was the case,it wasn't.
Heres Specs: DVD RW DW-D22A
Any help appreciated as always.
PS:Any firmware updates?If so that would be great.
What is the brand and model on the sticker on the Drive ? Or what into what computer brand and model is it installed?
DVD-RW drives are very fragile, with early burnout if used often.
But some are just bad. The laser is just enough out of alignment, or the drive belt is worn or slick or too hot. It doesn't take make. They also age badly, so if your is older, that could be the problem.
There is no fix except to buy another one.
Luckily they are very inexpensive. Consider Plextor or Yamaha for the better, more expensive ones. But LiteOn, LG, Pioneer, and Samsung are as reliable as any. Less reliable are Sony, Sony NEC, HP, HLDS, ACER, ASUS, LaCie, Rosewill, ...
You can get good ones at Wal-Mart for $34 or online for $24.
When you replace it, take the old one apart from the screws on the bottom, and see how they are built.
Hi. Hope everyone is doing well. I'm home from school, and my parents are using one of my sister's very old PC from college, which only has Windows 98 on it. It has been working pretty well until a couple of days ago the spacebar started acting like the return key (every time I hit space, it enters onto the next line so my emails have been really annoying -- haha!). I'm on another sister's laptop at the moment and am wondering if anyone can help me fix the space bar issue on my parents' computer, that would be awesome so my folks can get a little more use out of the computer. Thanks so much!! Take care.

Although I don't personally like bumping threads like this, I'd really like the help seeing as I only have until tomorrow evening before I must take the computer back to the store (My sister has need for that computer within one and a half weeks, I take it that fixing the computer might take around one week...)
I will edit this post later and maybe post the specs here or something. (Or does this forum allow deleting posts after further replies are added?)
For some time now my computer will randomly make a click sound, and it somewhat sounds to me like a hard drive.. But what I dont understand is why.. I also noticed that my external USB hard drive wouldn't work since it wasnt recognized, unless I hooked up a powered USB hub, then it worked like a charm. Is this pretty much my power supply going on its way out?
Maybe. But I think they are unrelated.
If a hard drive clicks, ever, that is a ominous sign. I recommend you run a HD Diagnostic tool on it asap.
I just recently bought a BELKIN "N" wirless routher to replace my Linksys Wirless routher. Everything works well except when it comes to this part.
- I enable the DMZ settings puting in the IP address of the computer which I want, then the wirless stops working. Only the wired desktop works, then when I disable the DMZ everything seems to work again. I need the dmz to be able to play/ host games In Empire Earth AoC. Is there anyway I can go around it? Never had this problem in Linksys
the object of a DMZ setup is to isolate systems. disabling WiFi is one way to do this.

Hello, I have a Philips SPC220NC webcam, when I plug it in the USB nothing happens, the camera will only work if I keep pressing the "Take picture" button, even so it only works once, if I want to use it again I have to restart the system.
As weird as it may seem I have the same problem with a Genius e-messenger 112 cam, so I'm guessing there's something wrong with my computer which is not specific to a camera model, question is what?
My computer is an Acer Aspire 5102 wlmi (5100 series)
Thurion Dual core 1.6 ghz
ati x1100 integrated video card
All the drivers loaded ?
Also the bios is in this link too
Note 5100 is also 5200
Check Device Manager
Go to system -hardware - device manager in Control Panel
hey i am the proud owner of a Pioneer DVD-RW-106D, well not SO proud its pretty ancient. however its not had problems before. untill now...
I was trying to write a data cd and it was having none of it. It didnt even begin the write. Clone Cd just screamed "OH NO!!!" and told me the DVD RW had failed. I tryed upgrading the firmware and got the same result. It can however play DVDs and games and so forth fine...
any idea whats wrong?
thanks as always
It could be that the writing laser is dirty or broken, either try a lens cleaner (if there is one that can do write lenses - I'm not sure) or replace the drive.
Hello everyone new to this forum and hoping somebody can give me some input on BSOD, weird is After acting video a video problem i have been having and have updated my profile with some specs I recently ran into a bsod that stated IRQL LESS THAN OR EQUAL This happended After BSOD, video is acting weird while playing Tabula Rasa and using skype at the same time After i was forced to reboot I noticed static bands of colored pixels in rows across my screen that only appeared on my splashscreen when booting and before XP could finish loading it bsod with the same error message I did research on the error and After BSOD, video is acting weird got many different possibilities such as faulty ram overheated cpu bad drivers something wrong with BIOS however my symptoms are a bit different I checked my cpu for overheating didnt go over c and i pulled out sticks of ram and tested them indivually checked my fans and all are spinning i checked my IRQs and nothing seems odd just one or two things sharing a number I had my suspicion that it was a video problem and decided to uninstall my nvidia drivers and install the latest Half way through the installation of the driver it bsod with the same IRQL LESS THAN OR EQUAL message Based on that im pretty sure its the video card but i dont have a spare PCI-E card to test my theory so I would like some second thoughts on this before i go buy a new video card nbsp

i just got a acer aspire 5520 and im generally happy with it, the only problem i sometimes get is weird keyboard lockups.
sometimes the directional keys freeze (say im playing something, i tap a direction and sometimes it sticks for a sec or 2), not the keys themselves ofcourse but the direction i go in the game.
or sometimes the directional keys just stop working all together for a sec or 2 (this happens in Stepmania mostly) after i spam the keys a lot.
PS: also, how do i get the keyboard to recognize 3+ keys at once(pressing 3+ keys together), it can only do 2 max atm.
thanks for the help
Are there any programs like virus or hard drive scans automatically set to run on the system? How long has this been happening?
Hi all there i have a cisco aironet card cb21AG, running on the ATheros chipset AR5212A. Its a PCMCIA card i use a Laptop
this card works beautifully on linux, but on windows if i try the original driver the system just becomes sluggish and the mouse stops moving and finally hangs.
if i use the downloaded drivers from Cisco the card connects to the Access point for about 1 minute and then connection drops.
I have tried the information posted on this site at http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/wind...2-Wireless-Cards-to-Work-with-Windows-XP.html
But this information also did not help, i tried various drivers from driverguide.com also but none helped.
Any help would be appreciated please.
My config is - Acer 2403 laptop 1.5 gigs of ram, 40gb hdd Windows XP SP2 with built in BroadCom WiFi which is disabled.
Hey again TechSpot I turned on my computer to do some gaming this afternoon and things I have never seen before started happening The screen would pause or tear while the game continued on fine in the background acting badly. Graphics up text Graphics acting up badly. would bend and shift and at one point the bloom in the game I was playing would increase every few seconds for no reason until it became unplayably bright In all of these situations I could alt-tab to the desktop instantly with no problems so it wasn t even slowing down my system My computer has been running with absolutely no problems for two weeks now Since I got my DX card and installed Vista The only difference I had made was I swapped a RAM stick with a friend but the stick he leant me worked fine in his computer and the trade only put my computer down to GB of RAM It s also the same brand and model as my current RAM I have the latest drivers latest Direct X and I have patched my games Computer specs are as follows Ghz Pentium Dual Core GB DDR Mhz RAM GB SATA HDD Gigabyte GA-N SLI-DS Motherboard Windows Vista x Thanks in advance for your help TechSpot nbsp

Also it sounds like a new warranted PC.
Take it back,isn't that obvious ?
Hi,For some unknown reason when i put a disc in it dosent start automatically and when i click on the DVD rom it says no application found,but if i click explore i can get it to work,also i have just reinstalled my printer a canon new cartridges,and oddly my Dvd has been renamed Canon instead of pioneer.I am using Windows Vista Home Premium,really weird.
I'm away from my Vista machine right now. But there are settings for what action to take when you insert something. I'm sure its in one of the control panels, under AutoPlay or something like that. Try the help feature in Vista its pretty good and should give you something relavent if you look for autoplay. Then you'll likely have to set up what action you want it to take again, should be self explanatory.
I m having a pig of a time connecting to my wireless router It mostly connects fine but suddenly the connection will drop out despite XP saying it is still connected When I doubleclick the wireless icon to bring up the Wireless Network Wireless strangely acting Connection Status box it can show the signal fluxuating from two bars to four the speed jumping anywhere from Mbps to Mbps and the name Wireless acting strangely of the network keeps vanishing and reappearing as though it s constantly losing the connection Wireless acting strangely None of these things even seem connected the signal can be great but the speed drops or vice versa Diconnecting then reconnecting solves it at least until it happens again My laptop is less than ten metres from the router and no-one else in the house seems to have these problems I ve both updated and rolled back my drivers and had a defrag Any suggestions If this is at all related to any of the other current topics being discussed be sure to point me to the right one Thanks Phil nbsp

Hello all I am having some very troubling things happen on my wireless network at home I have laptops that connect to it My old laptop which is just used as a media streaming PC for my stereo connects just fine However my work laptop does not connect to the strange acting network wireless Home network It has worked flawlessly for over Home wireless network acting strange a year and all of the sudden it doesn t work anymore I have looked through all the settings turned off MAC filtering turned off the encryption And still nothing This is driving me mad as I need to get work done on this computer It keeps going through and acting like it is going to acquire a network Home wireless network acting strange IP address but never seems to complete the process I have also checked to be sure there are enough IP addresses available and there certainly are I have also increased the number to try as well Still no luck It sits in a continuous loop of Acquiring Network Address Disconnected Connecting Acquiring Network Address Disconnected etc Anyone ever seen anything like this I forgot to mention that I can connect to another unencrypted wireless network on my street just fine nbsp

Funny isnt it, I just had the same thing happen on an Inspiron 1300, I was messing with turning off some of the unwanted startup items as well as trying out an ADHOC network, after messing the laptop had the same symptons you describe, and here's why.
I had messed up something in the WIndows Zero Config for wireless networks, Even though the network appeared in the wireless networks list there wasnt an entry for it in advanced settings, ( yes I had removed it playing with the ADHOC network) once i reentered the details such as SSID and WPA_PSK key all was OK.
Further to this I was playing again today with the same laptop, again trying to get an Adhoc Network to work, and I did the same, removed the Network in the advanced settings, again Windows found the network and tried to connect but couldnt until I reentered the SSID and Key.
So if your network is in advanced, remove it and reenter it with the SSID and Key you used originally and see if that helps..

It was working fine yesterday, I used it to burn a dvd image onto a blank dvd.
Today I attemptted to burn some files to a dvd and XP won't even set the shortcuts, says "problem copying windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file".
With CD media, it works just works fine, and it can see the content of already burned DVDs and read the files. So the only problem seems to be writing on DVD media, it can read DVDs, and it can read and write CDs.
-I removed and re-added the driver.
-did a system restore to a previous time before all recent app installs.
-verified it is the same type of media (+R, 8X)
-tried different DVDs
-rebooted a couple of times
Can anyone help me solve the enigma?
Hi Im using a HELP! My acting is up. headset Logitech premium stereo headset close spelling Im a gamer i play COD and for those who do not play that game it is very important that you HELP! My headset is acting up. have a headset and a good soundcard Well latley my headset has been acting wierd one speaker goes out the left one if i leave the cord in a certain way It has nothing to do with the jack or anything the cord is attached to the right speaker thats also where the mic is too If i leave the cord in a certain way and the left speaker goes out i have to shape it and bend it to make the left one produce sound This might be from me HELP! My headset is acting up. chewing on the cord LOL yeah its a tendancy of mine There is no visable damage on the outside You can understand how annoying this can get when your right ear is the only thing getting sound and especialy when your gaming HELP! My headset is acting up. Thanks alot hope you can help BTW i bought it from bestbuy and i have the year warrenty thing and i ve already returned these to them for the same reason The warrenty ends in december and i still have a chance to return these again Just wondering if thers a way i could fix them before i do in a couple of months and yeah i wont chew on the cord anymore nbsp
the headset cord is obviously damaged
i wouldn't recommend chewing on your cord, although i doubt that it caused the issue if you say that you didn't actually chew threw it
headset wires are usually very thin. this makes them very easy to damage by simply pulling at the wire. you may not mean to do it, but it does happen. this is the most likely cause.
you may be able to locate the break by where you have to "shape it". if it is close to the jack, then you can just chop the wire a little before the break, and install a new jack. otherwise i would replace the headset (if i worked at bestbuy, i would not let you return a headset that you chewed through. hahahaha)
chewing wires is something that i scold my dog for doing because he doesn't know any better. usually humans know better, but i guess there are always exceptions.. haha j/k
I was wondering if one could hook up two computers to act like one computer, like draw resources from both.
Since you are asking this question in this way.. The answer is no.
Motherboard: ASUS A8N-SLI
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 4000+
GHX Card: EVGA Geforce 7900GTX
Monitor: Spectre X20G-NAGA III
I have recently started building a new omputer and I have run into a problem. The computer turns on but when I look at the monitor, an message pops up showing a picture of this: Monitor ---> X --->Tower (Basically meaning that it has no connection to the computer) I find that intresting though because I have everything plugged in and in the right slots.
Any ideas? Any solutions? Please help!
Hello and welcome to Techspot!
We need to back up a bit first. Open up your case and have a look.
When the system is not turned on, there is an LED light on your board. Can you see it? What color is it? When you hit the power button, tell us EXACTLY what happens. Any fans spinning? Does the color of that light change? Any beeps from the system?
Did you connect the power connector to your graphics card?
How many watts is your PSU (and what make is it)?
Tell us some more about your ram. What size and speed are the ram? How many sticks?
ok when i woke up this morning and tried to get on the internet i found that my ethernet light on my modem was out. so i try everything i know and still nothing, then while on tech support(free) i noticed that the orange light on the router to the left was out and all the ethernet port lights were on. so i pulled the power cord out and back in and then everything was working fine. now i know there is a hardware firewall, my question: did the router catch some nasty virus or something in that catagory and this was some kind of "safe" mode?

Routers do occasionally fall over.It`s when it starts happening regularly you need to worry.
Lots of ideas HERE about updating firmware,static IPs,DHCP etc.

hi, when i right click on most files on my computer, all windows close and the screen goes blank(background alone stays), and it practically logs back into windows, is there a problem with explorer.exe? any suggestions on a fix? please help me out, this is getting very aggrevating
A faulty Explorer shell extension appears to be the problem.Known culprits include Photoshop,Divvx and Spysweeper.
1.Go to Regedit
In this key, all shell extensions are listed which work with all files. The * is a real star, it does not mean 'any key' here!
3. Choose "Registry" - "export registry", so you can revert your changes later. Choose to export only the selected branch.
4. Now delete one context menu handler after the other, and then try each time in (Windows Explorer) whether right click works again. This way you should find the defective extension.
5. When you have found it, you need to double click the .reg-file created above to restore all shell extensions, and then delete only the malfunctioning extension.
You may have to repeat this with the keys
If the error happens with directories or with virtual folders.
Help I began having problems with my computer a week ago with a noise coming from the heatsink fan I cleaned it system acting strange but the noise continued and I could actually see the fan slowing down system acting strange and speeding back up This went on for two days while I put in an order for a new fan On the third day when I turned my computer on BIOS came up followed by a black screen that listed the master slave disks and bus controllers system acting strange and at the bottom of this page it said this Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM with a tiny flashing at the bottom of the page I tried turning it system acting strange on and off a couple of times and about the fourth time it loaded normally like now and allows me to use it without crashing or freezing or acting up at all normal I have not got the fan yet and every day it gives me the black screen until about the fourth time I turn it on then it is normal My computer is an AMD Athlon tm with GHz MB of RAM and is less than two years old I have two hard drives and am basically ignorant I did some googling and found this place I do not have a floppy in the drive and although I do have a Bart PE builder boot disk I am not sure how to use it My heatsink fan is not overheating and I have a cooler on it and it is registering about C Any suggestions Thanks karenlee nbsp
i don't think it is to do with your heatsink/fan, have you got a CD or DVD in when you are starting it up?, if you have take it out and it should work.

99.9% chance that the onboard voltage regulators for the processor are nearly dead, or the hi energy density caps on the same regulated voltage have had it.
Assuming the one you mentioned pertaining to your profile which is relatively new. Then its regulators or caps subjected to too much heat or abuse of OC'ng.
Replace the mobo before it dies suddenly taking out the processor and also the memory with it.
my computer just suddenly had problems playing battlefield 2 the image kept freezing and jumping around. i had heard that if you turned the virtual memory off it would make things run faster and it didnt so i switched it on again and now battlefield 2 is running weird and my mouse for the computer hasnt been working lately either it just freezes on the screen so i switched mouses still the same problem
can you tell me what is going on and what i messed up

Hey guys hows it goin...i have 2 problems
1) I have a problem when ever i start my computer it says Warning !!System is in safe mode please reset you overclocked settings press F1 to continue or DEL to go into setup......
after i reset my computer to defualt settings in bios my computer keeps saying the same thing when ever i start my computer...i restarted my computer like a 100 times but it just keeps saying the same thing and i have to press f1 to start windows
2) When i start press the start button it takes about 35 to 40 seconds for my computer to Actually start....basically what i am saying is that the startup boot screen comes 35 seconds after i press the start button... this never happend before and just started doing this today....
Any Suggentions on what is happening
MSI- K8N neo platinum 7030
amd athlon 3200+
I am guessing when you say you press the "start button" are you talking about power button on your case, not "Start" button as in, Windows? Right?
Sounds like the "default" BIOS settings are not right, overclocked or not. Sounds like you just need to set everything, not to defaults or to failsafe, but to "correct" settings.
This would be multiplier and RAM CAS speeds etc...
Taking 35 seconds to show you the post screen would be that the system is having trouble detecting everything.
You'll have to go into BIOS and check that the settings are right. Or at least that they are all AUTO.
I recently installed a new amd 64 3400+ CPU, Chaintech Socket 939 s1689 motherboard and 512MB of DDR400 PC3200 Ram. I'm experiencing odd, sharp screeching sounds when I speak through my microphone (to speak to other users playing games online). I tried updating my motherboard drivers as well as all other drivers, however I get the same results. I also tested the mic using a different mic. I also tried forwarding the sound to the front connections, but the same result was heard. Any ideas?
well you'll have to describe a little bit more.first of all are you using a soundcard or onboard audio?then which games are you getting this odd screeching sound?is the normal windows mic recording ok?i dont understand your problem that well,if you are having problem listnening to other players during online multiplayer then it might be a bandwith issue.

Check your event viewer and device manager for conflicts, if there is nothing suspicious than definitely take a look at bios/cmos settings.Is either the mouse or Kb older, dirty or spill your coffee someplace you did not see?
I m not sure if this is the correct forum for this but here goes About a week ago my MS Office did something strange -- when I opened acting is My strangely Office 2003 Microsoft the program the window flew off the left side of the screen and I could not click on it or get it back There is a shortcut showing on the task bar and I can minimize or maximize but either way I cannot see the page type anything or drag amp move -- it is just off the screen in limbo somewhere I tried My Microsoft Office 2003 is acting strangely again tonight and I COULD open it when in safe mode finally Is there any way I can fix this problem so I don t have to be in safe mode all the time I only use this desktop for PC gaming or creating word documents -- it doesn t go online at all I have a different computer I use for that Thanks for the help Oh another thing - I did try to system restore to an earlier date only to find that this program had been turned off so no go with that possibility Mikahmom nbsp
Does your PC do the same thing with all the programs you open? Or just with Office?
As a first thought, you say it opens ok in 'Safe mode', so that seems to point to your graphic drivers being missing or the wrong version for your card.

My nero software seem to act funny on me by switching off by itself...
-I try to execute Nero it just doesn't excute.
-I try to uninstalled from Add and Remove, it also doesn't execute.
-When i try to go into it system-FOLDER (C:\Program\Ahead) it close by itself. (WTF)
-And when i try to going into its source folder (Stand alone file download from website) also close by itself. (WTF)
Did i get hack or something? I have never experience this problem before or something similar to this... Could anyone guide me on this case?
If you have an official Nero, uninstall and re-install should solve that problem.
If a trial-version, maybe the trial-period has expired?
If non-legal, no advise.

Hi,I have newly installed Vista home premium everything seemed to be going fine but now i find the hard drive red light is constantly flickering and at work sounds like a steam engine,any ideas what is causing this. Regards Martin
Best i can add,
First do a complete chkdsk.
Then do a Defrag.
Then look in Start Menu/Programs/Startup
Is it empty ? Do you need whats in there ?
When the red light is flickering it means something is being run on your system.
Check to see what it might be.Also empty your cd drives.
As for the noise ask some other employees what "they" hear."
Sound more like a Fan.

So, hello everyone! I seem to have this new problem with this PC. It's a Toshiba, it has Windows 7, 4GB RAM, overall a good one, Ever since last week, it has started to run really, really slow and sluggish. It takes up a lot of time to login, programs open up slowly, and this particular process named "unit.exe" takes up around 1GB of the memory. 900mb to be exact. I can close it and the computer is lightning fast, but everytime I turn it on it's the same story. I have ESET Smart Security 8 as my AV and Comodo as my Firewall. Neither of them detect anything related to unit.exe. Any help please? Thanks in advance!

When these problems occur, it's happens for both my usb mouse and my touchpad. I'm using a laptop.
Seemingly randomly and starting from last night, my mouse will all of a sudden start acting really weird. Left clicking results in right clicking and right clicking results in nothing. Or sometimes, no clicks will work at all until all of a sudden, everything starts working fine again. I've run Malwarebytes, CCleaner and have restarted my machine, but the problem will randomly come back. My mouse driver is also apparently up to date. I'm not sure what kind of additional information you need to diagnose the problem, but let me know!
A new problem that's just ocurred is I can't click on active tabs in Chrome to switch between them, but I can click on everything else including the new tab and close tab buttons. That might just be a Chrome problem though.
Simple fix. When all goes wrong, re-install the entire operating system to rule out software issues. It prevents you from having to deal with potential infections which can sometimes be impossible to clean once they infiltrate your system. Once you do a clean install.... update the drivers.... (and you should be backing up your pc regularly anyways) report back and let us know if you're still getting the issue. If you are, that will tell you it's a hardware issue.http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/379128-mouse-s-acting-up.html

Someone please help...
I updated to 8.1 a few days ago and it was working fine, but now i'm scared.
Whenever i open my chrome it might move the browser itself, or it acts like i pressed the scroll wheel and scroll down or make everything blue. Steam did it a few seconds ago too. I'm doing a Malwarebytes scan and it hasnt found anything just yet. I cleaned (or tryed) to clean the optical laser but it's doing it still. What do i do?
Go to device manager, right click on the mouse.....choose uninstall......Reboot. The mouse will be reinstalled at the boot up.
Does the problem still exist ?

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully.First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding.Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one.If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.Do not run any other scans without instruction or add/remove software unless I tell you to do so. This would change the output of our tools and could be confusing for me.Post all logfiles as a reply rather than as an attachment unless I specifically ask you. If you can not post all logfiles in one reply, feel free to use more posts.If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.Stay with me.

Scan with aswMBRPlease download aswMBR ( 4.5MB ) to your desktop.Double click the aswMBR.exe icon, and click Run.There will be a short delay before the next dialog box comes up. Please just wait a minute or two.When asked if you'd like to "download the latest Avast! virus definitions", click Yes.Typically this is about a 100MB download so depending on your connection speed it can take a short while to download and become ready.Click the Scan button to start the scan once the update has finished downloadingOn completion of the scan, click the save log button, save it to your desktop, then copy and paste it in your next reply.Note: There will also be a file on your desktop named MBR.dat do not delete this for now.

Unless I'm missing something, this is a touch screen which you use your finger to navigate rather than a mouse. If you are more comfortable using a mouse you can use a usb type with the laptop. I personally don't know anyone who uses a stylus on a laptop touch screen.
Just out of curiosity, where did you read that you needed to use a "pressure pen"?
I used to have a lot of problems with the touchpad intermittently freezing; it then worked well for a while but is now misbehaving oddly.
The right and left buttons on the touchpad work normally, but instead of moving the cursor, trying to use the main part of the touchpad scrolls the screen up and down instead. A USB mouse connected works normally.
It started yesterday. Only thing I did was run AdwCleaner and delete a registry key it found (I think I had downloaded adware on mistake so I was cleaning it). It started this behavior a little while later.
ScrollLock doesn't seem to be on and I have tried disabling and re-enabling the touchpad.
This was solved by uninstalling and reinstalling the touchpad and drivers.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/562695/touchpad-acting-up-dell-inspiron-5000-series/

so My internet has been fine no problems before, but in the last week its been taking like a minute to load pages where before it would have taken like 2 seconds. sometimes if it's long enough wait time it will pop up saying Mozilla Firefox cannot display this page. Yesterday I got the AVG Internet Security package and did a full scan and also got the AVG PC Tuneup. Got rid of some bad files and fixed some what others but the problem is still here. What can I do to speed up my computer. And also if I clear up some space on my hard drive will that make the internet run faster? or just my pc?
Yesterday I got the AVG Internet Security packageWhat kind of protection did you use before?also got the AVG PC TuneupPersonally, I wouldn't be using it...Registry cleaners/optimizers are not recommended for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.
The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.
Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.
Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.
The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.Ed Bott's Webog: Why I don't use registry cleanersDo I need a Registry Cleaner?
Hi there, my computer has been acting strange lately.
About 2 weeks ago my computer started to act up, my cpu is being used alot more than it should, it even goes to 100% every now and then, I can't even watch youtube videos without my browser freezing up.
I've scanned my computer with avg and malwarebytes and each time they say i'm clean, and i haven't downloaded anything new that would take up this much cpu.
Can anyone help me figure out what's going on?
My specs in case it's needed
OS: Vista Home Premium 32-bit
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 (3.00GHz)
RAM: 2.5 GB
Hard Drive: 139 GB
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 7900
Sound Card: Realtek High Definition Audio
What browser are you using?
Did you try a different browser?
Does the high CPU usage happens only while using a browser?
net is some times fast and some times slow
my videos have lag spikes and at the same time my webcam light flashes like it is in use.
i just got a new ISP and reloaded my computer...
i have heard of webcams lights flashing and sending pix some where... but i have no idea how to search my computer for some thing like that.
Try 'speedtest.net' to get a check on your download and upload performance. If you just want a one time measure there is no need to register with them, just use the website. If you register, which is free, you can get a record of your connection performance over time and this can be very useful when it comes to arguing with an ISP ! You need to remember that almost all ISPs advertise their services as, for example, upto 10Mbps. If you are on average getting 8 or 9 Mbps, this would be considered quite reasonable. If, again on average, you were only getting 1 or 2Mbps this would probably be regarded as unreasonable although it would literally fit within the description 'upto 10Mbps'.
Your videos may be lagging because of a poor connection, or - if you download a lot - you may be being 'throttled', or you may be suffering purely because of your location relative to the exchange and the number of people in your neighbourhood using the web.
Your web-cam. There is normally a switch somewhere to enable / disable this. It may be a switch mounted beside the lens or it may be a software switch - the 'Fn' key and one of the 'F' keys at the top of your keyboard. I have heard of the seriously paranoid putting a piece of duct tape across the lens !
If you are concerned that unauthorised software is taking images through your web-cam, download and install Malwarebytes, update it then run a quick scan. If it finds any unauthorised software such as malware start a new topic in the 'Am I infected?' section of BC. You can get malwarebytes here :-
i'm having a problem with my laptop i formatted it 1 week ago.And now it's booting up very slow and when it comes back from sleep (blue screen) shows up and error is

About a week ago, I noticed that when working in the Windows folder browser, and inside some openGL applications, the mouse starts acting erratic when clicking. Sometimes when you want to click and hold, it will release, then re-select.
I've tried the computer with multiple mice, all that work on different computers around the house, and they all have the same problem on the computer. I also re-installed some drivers, but that also didn't help. The computer is an older Dell running XP service pack 3. The computer has been scanned for viruses and I don't believe that's the problem. It also seems like the mouse could be confusing the left and right mouse button sometimes. Again, I have checked with different mice and they all have this problem. Thank you for any help.
Have you done the most basic mouse check, going into the Mouse settings in Control Panel to make sure speeds and configuration are correct?http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/481758/mouse-acting-weird-in-applications/
