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 am having trouble with sorting my file list whose file names begin with 6 digits representing the date. (ex: 011809 which is Jan 18 2009). I am running Vista Home Premium and additionally have gone in to the registry and added a New DWORD Value, NoStrCmpLogical with a value of 1. This has resulted in everything beginning with 1's, 2's etc. being grouped but not using the entire 6 digits.

I am working on Exhibits for a Special Ed complaint that must be filed yesterday! However, with over 180 Exhibits and not being able to sort them chronologically, I am going in circles.

I am not sure if the value needs to be changed or if their is a different way to go about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi ERROR [URGENT] BOOT [URGENT] LOADER Guys This is quite a long story So let me get straight to the point On my Dell Optiplex Computer Windows -Ultimate I partitioned the hard drive to make space for another windows installation I then installed Windows Vista Ultimate on it All of that went successfully but after a while it became useless for me and my computer [URGENT] BOOT LOADER ERROR [URGENT] I then uninstalled Window Vista and deleted the partition so i would have one partition on my hard drive Windows So then every time i started up the PC it would load boot manager and it would ask me if i would like to boot to Windows Vista or Windows I had deleted Windows Vista from my computer so i thought it shouldn't be there Then i found this program that deletes the boot option As in it deletes Windows Vista off from the boot manager So then i went ahead and deleted Windows Vista from the boot list After i just tested to see it would work So i restarted my computer and it loaded the boot manager again And the problem is that i only have Windows Vista as an option instead of Windows I tried to do everything to fix this but it never worked and when i try to boot to Windows Vista it says that the boot file is missing Thats because i deleted Windows Vista So then i put my Window Install Disk in the CD drive and the CD Drive was making a loud buzzing noise I opened the case and it was literally broken So all i need to know is how i can get my option to boot to Windows on my Boot Manager I cant use a Disk Drive I presume the only way is to buy a new one or to Boot from a USB Please Post comments regarding this problem Thanks Adam Also i CANNOT access my computer


Hello adam, welcome to Seven Forums!

If Windows 7 is still there you need to make sure it's the Active partition and if it is do the 3 separate startup repairs discussed in this tutorial to recreate the "System" boot files (back) to Windows 7.

Start by having a look at Option Two #3, to see if it's active.

Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

You can use the outline in this tutorial at the link below to make a bootable USB of the Windows 7 installer and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

A:Solved: Compatability Qestion

The Asus website will list the supported processors for the motherboard as well as memory that's been tested with the motherboard.

Off hand the memory should work and so should the processor as it's a top of the line new motherboard, all it may need is a BIOS update which you can verify you have the required version or higher.

A:[SOLVED] Qestion about Window Xp Narrator.exe

Hi Dev in need,

I have had a good look through the documentation for Narrator, but can't see a way of saving the test being read as a .wav. I have found a program that I have just tested out that may be a good work around for you. It's called TTSReader which is Freeware (commercial and non-commercial is OK to use) Download the recommended first link (2.3MB)

Once you have installed the program, here is how to use it:

To create a new document, go, File>New, and then type what you would like to be spoken. There are 10 different voices to choose from. You can also change the pitch, speed and volume. When you are happy with the speech voice used, go, Tools>Read to WAV. Change the output to wherever you like (desktop) and hit Start. It will save the text you have written as a WAV file which you can play back.

Here is a sample for you.

Q: Z600

Hello , Maybe its a stupid question  I recieved a Z600 desktop pc .2x Intel Xeon Processor E5606 4C 2.13 GHz, 80W, 8M cache,4.80 GT/s QPI, DDR3 1066MHzQuadro 4000And 8 gb ram I know i will not be able to run the latest games with those specs . But what if i would install for example 2x x5570 toghether with gpu gtx 750 or 760. Would i be able to play games like dark souls 3 , battlefield 4 , .... Is it still worth to put some little money in it , max 150euro ? Its just that i watched this video on youtube and he is able to play the witcher 3 ultra settings .  


That is still a great workstation, and you can upgrade it nicely.  Read this entire thread, and be happy you have been gifted a "revision 1" motherboard that has higher capabilities than the original motherboard. Link is here. Google Z600 QuickSpecs, and the top one will be about version 7 but the next one will be about version 51.  Those reflect the original versus revision 1 motherboard. The SSD I recommended in the above thread is the one to get.  A fresh W7Pro64 is the way to go.  You can upgrade processors, but if the Max TDP for the one(s) you want is over 95W then you need to make sure you have a "Perfomance" heatsink/fan over it.  The search bar in this forum directs to this forum only.  You'll need to spend some time.  Note that you should only install a processor from the list in the QuickSpecs later versions to max out your performance, though you can use the older ones too. These are still new enough and in demand..... two fastest "revision 1" category processors will not be cheap even used off eBay.

A:z600 upgrades CPU, HD

I am working on a Z600 project right now, so this is timely.  You will need to use the search box on this page upper left area, which searches this forum only. 1.  First step is to see if you have an original motherboard or the later "revision 1" motherboard.  Best way to tell is if you look up the boot block date in BIOS, under the first tab.  The boot block date tells you if you have original or revision 1 most easily. 2.  Assuming it is the better later motherboard, then you need to find the latest Z600 QuickSpecs.... its in the 50s, maybe 51 or 58.  From that you can look at the HP supported processors.  Your memory should be the faster 1333 type but most of those processors listed there run slower than that.  3 run at the faster speed which will let your memory run faster too.  You can choose from those 3 for the best heavy lifting.  Note that the fastest quad core is faster than the fastest hexacore.  So, if you want raw speed I'd bet the quad core would serve you well.  If you want 12 rather than 8 total cores then go with the fastest hexacore.  I use the Noctua thermal paste.  We have had good success with used processors off eBay for these types of workstation upgrades. 3.  You'll want 2 processors, and you'll want to match to the heatsink/fan you already have. 4.  I believe you don't need a "performance" heatsink for 95 watt processor.... the motherboard wants one for processors that are over 95 watts, from my reading.  There is a way to spoof a motherboard into thinking it has a performance heatsink attached when it only is a mainstream, by the way. 5.  SSDs.... I have been very pleased with the Intel 320 series 300GB SSD that you can get off eBay.  We use a lot of those.... rock solid, and the Intel Toolbox is great for tuning it.  That workstation is a SATA Gen II one, and HP warns against using SATA Gen III HDDs in those unless they are sourced from HP (assume special HP firmware applied).  We have not seen a comment from HP on whether this rule holds also for SSDs, but I am assuming so.  Hence, I choose to use that particular SSD, and also have used HP-sourced Gen III SSDs in our SATA Gen II workstations with zero problems. The Intel 320 series SSD is a SATA Gen II drive with enterprise features, and has served us very well.  Even used off eBay they almost always have had 100% life left in them.  I update their firmware as needed via the Intel Toolbox. 6.  We use W7Pro64 mostly, but I have been pleased with the W10Pro64 OS.  You can upgrade to W10Pro64 for free at this time, so I have been "W10 activating" all my xw and Z workstations and having that ready for the future, but still mainly running them with W7Pro64.  Once your box is W10 activated you can install W10 anytime later.  You certainly want a 64 bit OS. 7.  You need a second processor to take advantage of the second set of 3 memory slots..... ideally you'll run with 6 x 1GB, 6 x 2GB, or 6 x 4GB.  The sweet spot for $/GB is with the 2GB sticks.  Having them all the same size gets you a speed benefit too....  Look at official HP sticks for that on eBay and you also can find the same codes from other vendors such as Dell.  I consider the HP sticks the best because they have been "binned" for quality. 8.  HP just came out with a new BIOS for the Z600.  It is best to update BIOS from within BIOS.  I have gathered best HP driver sets for W7Pro64 from later HP workstation sources and they load fine on the Z600, but for W10 I've been using what comes from the autoload from MS.  9.  I like to add in a quality eSATA backplane adapter to the bottom opening for fast backup and Acronis image captures.  I also like to add one of the TI-based HP USB3 cards into the top PCIe slot, and am working on a nice use of that ...

A:Z600 CPU upgrade

Bob, Correct Prefix of these processors is (x5650, x5660 and X5675) Model No           Part No x5650                WG731AA x5660                WG732AA X5675                LB215AA I have also mentioned technical information below what these prefix's means, Letter Prefix:X = PerformanceE = Mainstream (rack mount)L = Power OptimizedW = Workstation for up to 2 processors per motherboard. The letters also refer to the power consumption figures of the CPUs in question. Note that the numbers associated with the letters are for the "Nehalem"-based Xeon family and older Xeons that use the letter designations have different TDP values associated with the letters. L = Thermal design power (expected power draw with a 100% CPU load running normal software) of 60 watts or less. These are the "low voltage" chips. E = TDP of 80 watts. Intel refers to the Xeon 5500/5600s with this letter prefix as the "basic" line and as a result, the idle power draw on these chips is frequently worse than any of the other series of chips, despite the other chips possibly having a higher full-load power draw. X = TDP of 95 watts. These are the "premium" mainstream chips as their TDP is not so excessive that they are difficult to cool in a rack server, yet their idle power consumption is far lower than the E-series chips. W = TDP of 130 watts and higher. These are the fastest, hottest Xeons made and they are designed to be used in workstations and pedestal servers with better cooling than an average 1U or 2U rack server. ========================================================Although I am an HP employee, I am speaking for myself and not for HP.========================================================**Click the KUDOS star on the left to say 'Thanks'**

It sells for about US$100 which may be a bit steep if you're looking at a once off.

purchasing info is here but the toll free number is only good in the US (i'm in OZ myself) so you may need to drop them a mail if you're interested.

I would like to know if the Z600 will support the 3.1 USB adapter card and if so, what do I need for an installation?

View Solution.

A:Usb 3.1 adapter in a Z600 workstation

Agree.... that card should work in a Z600, but will it work to the USB 3.1 10Gbps speed standard?     No. The HP Z600 workstation has no PCIe generation 3 slots.  It has 3 PCIe Gen2 slots, 1 PCIe Gen1 slot, and 2 PCI slots.  Below is a link to the HP page describing the Z600's slots: Here is a note from StarTech regarding their card's speeds, emphasis added:  "The maximum throughput of this card is limited by the bus interface.  PCI Express Gen 1.0 max throughput is 2.5Gbps.  PCI Express Gen 2.0 max throughput is 5Gbps.  PCI Express Gen 3.0 max throughput is 10Gbps.  The available bandwidth (10Gbps) is shared equally between the two ports." These USB 3.0/USB 3.1 PCIe cards generally need power supplementation.... the +5VDC they need does not come up from the slot, but it is easy to find a 4-wire "molex" peripheral-to-SATA power adapter which can provide you the higher wattage 5VDC they need to meet potential power draws (versus what USB 2.0 needs).  All this info came from research figuring out how to add the Texas Instruments based HP USB 3.0 card to our xw6600 workstations, which have 2 PCIe Gen2 slots (the rest are Gen1).  Z620 gives you some PCIe Gen3 slots.... slots 2,4 and 5. Here's the Z600 slots diagram:

Hey there! I got a later spec Z600 WS here that came with dual X5650 (TDP 95W).I made a good deal and got two X5680 (TDP 130W), and tryed to install those to the WS.System tells me, that the CPU installed needs too much power, and the System got halted. Is it a Problem with the Heatsink, because of the fact, it is to small (for TDP <95W), or is itrealy the mainboard, that just can't take the X5680 Xeons?I googled a lot and found some Z600 running on those CPUs, so what's the deal? I already tryed to bridge Pin 1 and 5 of the Heatsink-Fan Connector to simulate a Performance Heatsink,just to test if it would boot, but that did'nt work.

A:Z600 with dual X5680 CPU

First, I don't see your new processor type listed in the latest QuickSpec for the Z600 I looked up this morning..... version 51, which lists your current X5650 but not the X5680.  There is a hot X5647 listed (at 130W max TDP) but the other higher performance processors are all 95W.  So, there must have been a 130W cooling option for the Z600, and I'd presume it is the same as used for the Z800 (see below).  Also, the Z600 must be able to provide 130W to each of its two processor sockets. I checked with the Z800 QuickSpecs (v56) and don't see the X5680 listed there either.  The latest QuickSpecs, however, often do not list all processors that were listed previously.  The now-unlisted ones will still work, and you can go back through the HP QuickSpec archives for your Z600 to see if the X5680 was ever officially listed.  If it was then it surely should work.  A HP engineer I trust fully has let me know that there are some cases in which a processor that was never officially listed will work.  Let's just say that will be a rare exception.  Maybe you have found one of those processors? The X5680 processor has only one sSpec code, SLBV5, and can be bought new now from Intel for $1663.00 each.  On eBay you can buy that processor today for about $200.00 each, USD, used. It is encouraging that you can get to the point of boot that the motherboard rejects your heatsink/fan combination, because my experience with truly non-listed processors is that they won't even get to that level.  Flat zero progression into boot. So, I'd buy one of the "Performance" heatsink/fans from eBay, and the Alan guys there have almost 450 in stock at a fair price, new.  That is a US source, and  I have bought from them in the past many times, with never a problem.  Buy one for about $50 and test with that and a single X5680 in place.  The wiring trick..... that jumper wire should work if HP is using the same motherboard sensing method for detecting presence of a performance heatsink/fan as was used in the xw8600, but who knows?  This performance boost is worth spending $50.00 more on at this stage of the game to get an official Performance heatsink/fan to experiment with.  For example, perhaps HP added to the motherboard the ability to detect the larger 92x92x15mm heatsink fan rather than the regular heatsink's 80x80x15mm fan. Take a look at this link, for more details on the Performance heatsink/fan that I believe you need.  Those have been available on eBay for a fair price, new and you can find that via searching for part numbers 463991-001 and 535588-001: Z800 Performance heatsink larger fan  Here's a picture of the performance heatsink/larger fan for the Z800, and likely exactly what you need for your Z600 project.  All my references indicate these are identical, but the Z400 performance fan is different.  Note how this heatsink/fan is shifted leftward on its mounting plate, when viewed from front (the fan side).  The Z400 performance heatsink/fan is not shifted leftwards because it is a single socket motherboard and has a fair amount of room around it on both right and left sides.  Thus, the performance Z400 heatsink/fan will not fit on the primary socket of a Z600 but this one below will.  The performance Z400 heatsink/fan will however fit on the secondary socket of a Z600 with a little bending down of its rear air deflector plate at its bottom.  You can see pictures of that Z400 performance heatsink/fan elsewhere in the forum.   I'd make sure you have the latest BIOS installed, and also confirm in BIOS that you have the latest revision of the motherboard by checking the boot block date.  It sounds like you'll have already done all that.  If one of those X5680 processors works then the other will ...

I have just upgraded to windows 7 (from Vista) and now I can't print. I have a Lexmark Z600 and although I did have problems getting the driver loaded & working with Vista, it did finally work. After upgrading to windows 7, I reloaded the printer driver to no avail. I even deleted it and went out and found the latest driver available for my printer and still no help. Any ideas ?

A:windows 7 vs lexmark z600

I gave up trying with my X74 All-in-one in the end.

Lexmark website was very definite XP was last driver release.

I never had vista.

Bought Canon MP 250 All-in-One then from Argos at 34.99 which I am very happy with. Although I dont do an awful lot of printing.
And mostly convert colour web pages to print in Grayscale.
(to save on colour cartridges)

The printer is quite noisy at start of printing as it resets heads and loads a page of paper, but quiet enough during printing.

Hi, Description explains it all, I've been thinking of replacing my current HDD for a SSD. I haven't done much researching on this myself but thought I would check here just encase there's any known issues/pit falls with installing a ssd into z600 workstation, I will be looking at adding a 1TB ssd. 1. Installing hardware? the z600 3.5 inch caddy wouldn't house an SSD, do HP sell brackets which will fit the z600 ? 2. Compatibility with the workstation? are there types of SSD which are best suited for z600 workstations? 3. Installing and set up? is it as straight forward as plugging in the SSD via SATA cable and installing the OS? Any Bios tweaks? Any info would be appreciated, Griff

A:installing a SSD into Z600 Workstation.

Installed a Samsung Evo 500gb SATA III into my z600..and it works perfectly. Installed it last week and have been installing programs and having general use from it with no problems. I wanted to test it properly before posting a response. It could be possible that i experience issues with it later, but I would of thought that if it had any issues I would know about it by now. My SSD reads at 282 MB/s and writes at 270 MB/s - Random Read 51612 (IOPS) Random Write (IOPS) 47395. Being a SATA II gen workstation its not reaching the SSD's full potential at 540/520 Mb/s read write but from what I've read you wouldn't even notice the difference its so fast.. and I agree  CC suite, mozilla, (haven't installed 3dsmax yet) all boot in seconds compared to minutes on old HDD. Just to note I didn't use a HP recovery disk to reinstall OS. I used an official windows 7 .iso and booted from USB (even though it some has some useful things, i didn't want HP bloatware) Drivers installed perfectly without a hitch. Windows serial on bottom of tower  1. Installing hardware? the z600 3.5 inch caddy wouldn't house an SSD, do HP sell brackets which will fit the z600 ?" Via Scott's comments, look for the 'needs-tool' version in the post's above, mine cost 8.50 and takes all of 5 seconds to fit the ssd to the z600. I wouldn't sugguest buying the tool-less version.. unless you have no hands and lots of money." 2. Compatibility with the workstation? are there types of SSD which are best suited for z600 workstations?"Yes they're HP approved SSDs detailed in the post's above, but I've had no issue with consumer grade SSD, but you roll the dice with which brand. The Samsung EVO 500gb, no problems. You can use SATA III ssd's but you can get issues as warned by HP as their firmware doesn't support some types (so basically if it doesn't work they wont help you) ". 3. Installing and set up? is it as straight forward as plugging in the SSD via SATA cable and installing the OS? Any Bios tweaks?"Make sure your BIOS is set to RAID+AHCI (Mine was already setup like this). I used the samsung magician tool after install and it will say that your PC is not set to AHCI, but i just ignore it. As long as BIO's and firmware are up to date you will be fine. Use a blindmate formfactor to install the ssd (see above posts). Make sure you get the latest firmware on a usb before you install SSD, it should be the first thing to check after installing the SSD. You don't need to change SATA cables from II to III as the cables are backwards compatible.. either way having a SATA III in a z600 will just limit you to SATA II speeds (which compared to a normal HDD are ridiculously quick). Just plug-in and install OS. It may be worth reading up on SSD optimistation, the samsung magician advises some things to do but not all neccessary, its either lifespan over performance.. defintely worth reading up on, if this is your first SSD as it was for me."  Hands down best upgrade i've done to my workstation, and very simple to do. I'm glad I waited for better support and for the cost to go down on SSD's before using them. Want to say a big thanks to Scott Harrison for his help on this subject. I pestered him lots but have really appreciated his guidance! cheers Scott and anyone else who posted help.  Enjoy your SSD, I will.  Griff

A:HP Z600 graphic card upgrade

The Z600 QuickSpecs indicates you can only have a single high end graphics card in the Z600. That is either one Quadro 4000 (142W) card or one Quadro 5000 (152W) card or one FirePro V7900 (<150W) card can be installed in the Z600. However, you can have two Quadro 2000 (62W) cards or two FirePro V5800 (74W) cards or two FirePro V5900 (<75W) cards in the system as this is supported (not that this will help with your graphics processing needs). The Z600 Maintenance and Services Guide also states you can have one 150W graphics card in either PCIe slot 2 or 4 (leaving the adjacent slot empty) OR you can have 2 75W graphics cards in PCIe slot 2 and 4. So SLI or crossfire is not a supported configuration with high end 3D cards due, in part to the 650W 80% efficient HP proprietary PSU used in the Z600 (which can't supply the needed power) and in part to the lack of system cooling validation for these more powerful 'heaters'. And as the HP PSU is a proprietary design, it is not a simple swap to an of the shelf standard ATX supply. Some cabling modifications would be needed and it still may not mechanically fit or work (as others have experienced no boot issues when attempting to use a modified standard ATX swap in their HP workstation -  some have even damaged their system board so be warned). As for mixing cards in SLI configuration, IIRC, Nvidia allows mixing cards from the same family. So, presumably a Q4000 & Q5000 would work as would a GeForce 760 with a Titan, should the PSU have supported the load (which it doesn't). Mixing Q4000 with GeForce Titan in SLI configuration will fail as they would be considered a different family. And you can't use a Quadro driver with a GeForce card or a  GeForce driver with Quadro card which creates a driver issue if you try such SLI mixes. So you may need to buy a more capable system (or do some development work to find a more powerful HP PSU you can fit into the Z600 or instead modify a standard ATX PSU to fit and resolve any issues this creates while also modifying the Z600 chassis cooling system to better cope with the extra heat). Good luck. [edited to add underlined text]

Ladies, gents, I recently got a refurbished Z600 workstation and immediately noticed that the chipset fan is always running at approx. 2,500 rpm, even right after a cold boot and when idling. I can't image that this is normal - all the temperatures are fine, so I see no reason for the fan to spin this high. I know that it is a small fan which needs the high rpm to create sufficient air flow, but 2,500 rpm seems excessive. Has anybody experienced this before? Is this in fact the normal idle speed for the chipset fan (as the seller's customer service wants to make me believe)?

I don't know the exact positon of the CMOS RESET switch, but you can remove the battery to set BIOS defaults.Don't forget to unplug the power cord, no need to remove the power supply or graphics card.Put back the battery after a few minutes and power on the machine.Video should be back now and all BIOS settings (including time and date) are lost.

Infected with Virus - used malaware (MBAM) removal software and deleted the files. irql_not_less_or_equal (0x0000000A) error occurred. After that, can not boot from XP CD to recover or even sony OEM logo is not appearing.

I get 1 beep code and blue screen most of the screen and black screen some portion. (phenix BIOS)

Attempts to get to BIOS with F2/F3/F8 did not help. Reinserted memory DIMMs and cleaned up inside little, no progress.

When I boot my Dell Demension 4550 Pent4, 2.00 GHZ, it says to hit F1 to reboot and keeps looping. I ran an diagnostic and received the following error code: 0F00: 1342 'Msg Block 0 address not found' I'm able to read the 'C' drive thru a DOS prompt.

Does anyone know how to repair this error or should I just do a re-install of Windows XP???

A:Windows XP boot problem/error code 'Msg Block 0 Address not found'

Some say disabling the floppy A: drive in BIOS fixes the issue. Not sure if itll work but if you do decide to reinstall windows you can do a repair install instead which will leave all your documents and programs intact.

Just make sure after doing so you update windows as all updates will be lost in the repair install.

The one that came with the machine was 460840-003 / REV AE, but it died so I got a replacement 460840-001 / REV 0D, however, I can't get the computer to post.

The Z600 460840-003 supports both the 55xx and 56xx Xeon processors.  As you discovered, the 460840-001 only supports the 55xx Xeons.  I am not sure about the 460840-002, but there are other threads in this forum where some have tried the varioius -00x Z600 versions.

I have a Z600 that came with an REV #003 motherboard and two X5670 CPU's. The board went bad and I replaced it with a REV #001, not realizing that it won't run X56xx chips. So I then purchased two X5570 CPU's and put them in. When I boot, I get a series of 8 beeps, and an error message that the BIOS is corrupt. So I created a BIOS recovery disc and flashed the machine as per the instructions. I then unplug the power cord (as opposed to powering down first), wait 5 seconds and plug it back in a power up. I then get the 8 beeps and the error message just like nothing has been done to fix it. Is it possible that trying to run X56xx chips on that board fried something? Is there a way to reset it? What should I try next? Thanks.

A:Date / Time changes on system boot

Hi Z

Seems like you've got the most likely candidates in mind already - the CMOS batteries and the firmware. If it's a bug in the Bios, seems like that would be likely only on one platform - but not both.

Any chance that the customers might have local tampering going on? [Anyone possibly getting access to the system after hours]?

Best of luck

Hello sierrapup, Welcome to TSF!

You mention that you can get into "a screen with start up options", is one of the options "Last Known Good Configuration"?
If it is, select this option, and follow the on-screen prompts.
If not, please give us the details of the listings.

Since installing SP3 my Dell Dimension 4600 resets date/time to 2004 (purchase date) and the boot drive reassigns to A: every time it is switched on.

I have uploaded the latest BIOS form Dell's website and tried a hotfix from MS. I re-set the date/time and boot drive in the setup utility in the BIOS on start-up, but these settings only last as long as the PC is left on.

I do not think this is a problem with the CMOS battery but with SP3. If I restore to SP2 then all seems fine.

I have desktop with pretty old configuration (from 2005) which had been working perfectly till now, unless it started showing "CMOS: Invalid date/time setting" on every boot after switching on from mains.

If mains is powered on and only system is shut down and started, CMOS invalid date/time issues are no longer noticeable.

I have done this below steps so as to troubleshoot the issue:
1. Replaced the CMOS battery with new one
2. Clear the real time clock through jumper pins as provided in mother board user manual (ASUS K8N)
3. Loading with default values from BIOS and setting date/time through OS.

The above mentioned methods solve issue temporarily and the set information is getting lost when the mains is switched off.

Can anyone suggest what might be the problem?.

PS: I did not face this issue from past 10 yrs of usage even though I had replaced battery couple of times.

A:Invalid date/time setting on every boot

presuming that the problem is ONLY related to the Battery
check voltage with multimeter on OLD battery and new battery
generally 3V

if old battery is less - and new battery is correct - check contact for battery is clean usually small sprung type projection contacts base of battery
side contact to + is usually OK

That is the first job
those batteries must be 3+ t0 work 2.8 is no good
There is not gradual fade they are either specified voltage or they are flat as far as the system is concerned

A:PC Wont BOOT, Urgent

Try unplugging the computer and remove the battery. Leave it out an hour or so. After an hour or so reinstall the battery take out all cards execpt video. Make sure memory is fully seated in their slots. All cables firmly seated? Cpu firmly seated? Plug computer back in and if it boots get into the bios. Usually by hittting the delete key right after you hit the power button. Load setup defaults. save and exit and see if windows boots. If it does then try rebooting several times to make sure it continues to boot. Now try the sound card in a different slot. If nothing works after reinserting the sound card, I would think that maybe its bad. Return it an try another. Is your power supply a generic one that came with the case?

A:[URGENT] Can't Refresh or Boot

The practical, and recommended, *( By me ) thing is to have a CD/DVD clean install version of Windows 8 or any other Windows OS for other times/computers. The problems with after market upgrades, or factory installed Windows 8, is that there isn't a disc. I've been stuck too many times.

Windows 8 comes in three versions and two selections. Regular, Pro and commercial for large corporations and government. Windows pro is sold as either an upgrade version or a complete version. Around my area Windows Pro complete sells for $69.99 US Dollars.

By installing the disc and booting it should get you back on line. It also contains some fix/repair features. There is also the old procedure or rebooting while tapping repeatedly the F-10 key which brings up a diagnostic/repair menu.
You may have been hacked by bandits. You may have a worm or virus. Or you may have a conflict with other software. Yours is a very common problem that is seen often on these forums wherein the protection software conflicts with Windows 8. One remedy there is to uninstall the software and reinstall it. Too it is necessary sometimes to go into the registry and delete some unwanted remnants of other useless software that is still embedded.

Windows 8 Defender and Firewall is considered to much improved and among the best FREE software. However, commercial software is recommended for enhanced protection.

Maybe one of your RAM modules is bad. If you have vista, hold down f10 or f8 at during boot to see if you can get to the memory diagnostic tool.
I had errors so I tried removing one of the RAM modules. Once I removed the bad RAM the error went away.

windows7 ultimate 32 bit. suddenly switched off, reboot does not show on screen which reads "HDMI CHECK SIGNAL CABLE"

Using ATI HD4350 fanless with heatsink connected via HDMI lead. tried another monitor using white dvi cable monitor stays blank then shows power saving mode. so that eliminates the monitere & hdmi lead.

could a duff graphics card show this error? any advice please. no on board graphics.

unable to get in to bios no bleeps, win7 dvd no good either, all fans come on and moterboard MSI X58 on board indicator light goes from amber to green when pc turn on so m/b must be ok.

A:pc will not boot need urgent advice please

If you can't get the system to boot up it's difficult to know whether to go for the graphics card or the motherboard.

When you say the Windows DVD is no good, is that you don't have one or that you can't extend the DVD drive tray?

If you've got a problem with your graphics and your DVD drive you could have a motherboard problem or possibly a power supply problem.

Do you have a system repair disc?

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode?

My new Win PC won't needed Urgent boot. help PC please! was fine yesterday - today it won t boot Startup Repair has run times now and it concludes that it cannot repair startup I have run System Restore from within Advanced Repair options to put the PC back to a time I knew it was working - which has made no difference Also ran the Memory diagnostic but it didn t report any errors not of course that I can get into Windows to see the log file it supposedly created When I try to boot PC won't boot. Urgent help needed please! into Windows I get the usual M B splash screens and now - I don t think this came up before - Loading Asus Express gate and then the Starting Windows message and then a quick flash of a Blue Screen of Death far too fast to read anything before the system shuts down and restarts the Startup Repair screen Not sure how or if I can change the restart options in the BIOS so that the blue screen remains on screen Asus P X DE M B Starting Win in Safe Mode also gives a blue screen As far as I can see unlike in XP there is no way to run a Windows repair from the CD-ROM Is my only option to reinstall Windows and therefore waste the three weeks I have spent setting the PC up as I want it Or can anyone see any other ways forward before I do this I can boot using a BartPE XP disc but that hasn t been much help Thanks Martin nbsp

My computer wont boot properly. It takes a long time to load and eventually when it finally opens, the system repair screen pops up. I then wait for the system repair to execute and it states it cannot fix the issue and to close. I close, restart and the same thing. I have tried to cancel the system repair and nothing. I have also tried to boot in safe mode but it takes a very long time and nothing.
I am stuck, I dont know what to do and I wish not to lose my valuable data. Please help me restore my data.
Note: I dont have the original windows 7 cd.
Please help ASAP, I would really appreciate it.

It says no hard drive detected. I have tried resetting BIOS, inserting boot CD's, and reinserting the HDD. please help me fix this. Thanks, bye. PS when i go into BIOS, Tools, HDD self test, it says no IDE device.

A:Computer will not boot up. URGENT

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Does the HDD have power?

How is the HDD connected to the motherboard?

Have you tried a new HDD?

My dad's laptop crashed, and it's getting a BOOT/BCD error.

Apparently, in order to fix this, I need to use the recovery disk from his computer and the repair option. His disk does not have that repair option. I created a recovery disk on my PC, and am wondering whether I can use it on his laptop.

If not, how else can I fix this problem? Advanced Boot Options does not start, I can't run in safe mode.

A:BOOT/BCD Error. Urgent!

Yes. Any Win7 repair disc is really nothing more than a slimmed-down Win7 installation disc to support only the system repair functions. (note that any Win7 installation disc can also be used to accomplish the same repair... just select "repair" from the main menu.)

And both of these discs are usable in any environment for repair of that Win7.
