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.)

i have been using the free version of superantispyware for a while now and have really liked it. it has recently come to my attention that i need a real time AV program as i have been getting crazy stuff lately and don't like it. i will admit that i don't know my stuff here so any recommendations would be great. to me it seems like SAS is the best deal but i don't even know the first thing about these things, and i know now that i should, so research it is.

PS to be honest i don't even know if SAS is an antivirus or if an antispyware is the same thing, cuz i know malware is different..... so if i am getting things wrong here i apologize.

Hi

Would some kind soul please give me an idiots guide to completely removing bought version of AVG please (including what happens if?) and where to go and how to download free AVAST or other AV that doesn?t take a degree in using (would have to include a Firewall as I need it) please as I need a new AV and no idea how to do this myself. Usually pay people to do it for me but I thought I?d have a go myself this time.

I would really appreciate your help especially as I know very little about how to do techy things on the computer. Thank you so much

A:AVG bought version removal

The correct way to remove AVG 2011 is through its program folder via Start > All Programs or by using Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in Vista/Windows 7.An alternative way is to download and run the latest AVG installation file. When the AVG Installer windows appears choose the option to Remove and click Continue to allow the AVG 2011 uninstaller to run. Restart the computer when done.If the above does not work, you can download and use AVG's uninstall/cleanup utility (AVG Remover) provided in the AVG 2011+9.0+8.x Uninstall/Re-Install Instructions. After restarting and removing the folders, stop where instructed to Stop here if not re-installing.AVG Remover eliminates all the parts of your AVG installation from your computer, including registry items, installation files, user files, etc. AVG Remover is the last option to be used in case the AVG uninstall / repair installation process has failed repeatedly.AVG RemoverIf you still have difficulty uninstalling AVG, download and use Opswat AppRemover.IMPORTANT NOTE: Before removing your existing anti-virus, you should download and save the setup file for the anti-virus you are going to replace it with. You should the same if you are going to reinstall AVG. After doing that, disconnect from the Internet, uninstall your anti-virus, reboot and then install the replacement. Reboot again to ensure it is working properly before reconnecting to the Internet.avast! Free Antivirusavast! Free Antivirus featuresavast! Documentation & User Manuals

Hello guys, I am planning to buy the HP Pavilion 15-au006tx. Wanted to know whether this has an M.2 Slot to add a Boot SSD? -Jenson











Solved!
View Solution.

A:HP Pavilion 15-au006tx M.2 SSD upgrade possible?

We get this question a lot and right now I cannot advise anyone to buy an HP laptop with the idea of adding an M.2 drive to it when it did not ship with one. There are a couple long-running threads here, one of which seems to have concluded that on certain models the M.2 port is disabled in the BIOS, and another has shown that a model which shows an M.2 slot in the Service manual in fact has no such slot. See p. 34 of the Service Manual: Manual It appears from this Manual that you can have either an M.2 mSSD or a hard drive since it refers to an SSD board and cable. It's also clear that if you can use an M.2 mSSD you are limited to the SATA variety, which has no speed advantage over a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. I would buy it, since the specs are very good and swap the 1 TB 5400 rpm HDD for a 1 TB SATA-III SSD and if 1 TB is not enough storage for you consider putting the 1 TB HDD in an optical caddy. Who uses a DVD drive these days, anyway? If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I bought a fujitsu s6231 notebook computer. It had a non-valid copy of windows vista. I want to install a copy of Windows XP Pro, so it is back to its RTM state. But when I boot from the disk, it says it cant read the disc or the disc is not a genuine Windows disc. I can assure you it is valid. so I researched and came to the conclusion that i need to wipe the hard drive and boot from the disc again. Am I correct? i also downloaded all the drivers I need, but how will i install these drivers on the notebook? unfortunately, I cannot get my money back for the notebook. I would appreciate any advice on this, I think Im going to use Darik's Noot and Nuke to wipe the hard drive and start over, is this a good idea?

A:Bought a notebook computer online and it came with a pirated version of windows vista home basic

use a flash drive and install the drivers and i dont think boot and nuke is necesary you can if you want but when you reinstall windows it will format it.

A:my father bought an old Acer laptop, need help clearing the laptop

The older Aspire Ones are unlikely to have drivers to let them run on Win 7 and XP's end of life is 04/08/2014. I had two Acer Aspire Ones and both were garbage (as were the Acer desktop, keyboard and mouse I had). Personally, I don't feel it's worth messing with. Hopefully, your father can get his money back.

A:I just bought this laptop....

Hi -

No difference between the "Sony version" of Vista and Vista. I don't see a re-install of Vista helping on a system < 24 hours old.

Did the system come with an Internet Security package like Norton or Mcafee? This is the most likely culprit. If existence of such, it must be taken out w/ removal tool. Program un-install won't do it.

Let me take quick look at sys info - run msinfo32 and save as NFO file -
START | msinfo32 | save as default NFO file

Zip it up and attach to next post.

I have tried calling the guy and I get no answer. No idea where he lives. Is there any way to get past this program until I can get it fixed someway?

I don't want to spend alot of money getting it taken off by a computer store unless that is the last resort.

Someone please help. I use my laptop alot for business purposes and this is putting a stranglehold on my progress as of late.

Hi Bill, welcome to TSF

If you've got the guy's phone number, keep trying to contact him for the password, as this is needed to uninstall K9.

EDIT: If it's only blocking your ability to read your email, you could go onto another computer, set up a webmail account (google, yahoo, etc), then redirect your regular email to the webmail account which you can view in your browser on the new laptop.

it has a few dings on it, which is fine by me b/c i only paid $400 for an $800 machine. well, i was cleaning it off b/c i hate a lot of the programs that come w/ a new one & i noticed there are things installed @ different dates. for example, there are programs that were installed in november 2011 & then again on april 2012.

is that normal? i've got 14 days to return this.

A:How To Get My Laptop Back To How I Bought It?

Hello iSmokeJesus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You can do this to format your hard drive and restore it back to factory settings like the day you first got it.

1. Insert the Recovery disc for Vista into the drive.
2. Restart the laptop and press F12 key when you see the Toshiba logo on the screen.
3. Select CD/DVD drive from the boot menu.
4. Press OK and wait until the laptop boots from the DVD.
5. Select "Recovery to factory defaults" and press OK. It will take some time to reimage the hard dive.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi, I just bought an ACER laptop running windows 7 home premium--it has what I need. I haven't turned it on or started it up. Any suggestions on what do before I start? I have a blank DVD ready to burn. I have heard about "decrapfier" and am quite tech savy. On other computers, I have immediately run a deleted file recovery program that showed what folder/files were removed on brand-new startup. Thank You--Dennis

A:Bought new laptop--what is next step?

Hi Dennis. . .

Boot the system, follow the screens. Once you reach Desktop, allow all Windows Updates to install -

www.update.microsoft.com

If there are OEM pre-installed apps you want to remove, use Revo Free - Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware

If the system came with a trial Internet Security Suite - get rid of it using app manufacturer's removal tool -

Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software - ESET Knowledgebase

Reboot upon completion. Install MSE - http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Enjoy Windows 7!

Bought a new Sony laptop with Vista Business loaded, I was not given the backup CD with the sale.
The salesperson told me that all new systems sold now do not include the O/S CD, is this true?
I do have the product key, would I need to go to the MS downloads site to burn a copy?

Your computer might have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive instead of a recovery CD.

Hi,

The attached DMP file is of the SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (3b)bug check.

This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.

This error has been linked to excessive paged pool usage and may occur due to user-mode graphics drivers crossing over and passing bad data to the kernel code.

We have barely any info from the dump itself, so let's go ahead and enable Driver Verifier. Before doing so however, ensure you have the latest video card drivers via the manufacturers website. If you are already on the latest video card drivers, uninstall and install a version or a few versions behind the latest to ensure it's not a latest driver only issue. If you have already experimented with the latest video card driver and many previous versions, please give the beta driver for your card a try.
Driver Verifier:

What is Driver Verifier?

Driver Verifier is included in Windows 8, 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 to promote stability and reliability; you can use this tool to troubleshoot driver issues. Windows kernel-mode components can cause system corruption or system failures as a result of an improperly written driver, such as an earlier version of a Windows Driver Model (WDM) driver.

Essentially, if there's a 3rd party driver believed to be at issue, enabling Driver Verifier will help flush out the rogue driver if it detects a violation.

Before enabling Driver Verifier, it is recommended to create a System Restore Point:

Vista - START | type rstrui - create a restore point
Windows 7 - START | type create | select "Create a Restore Point"
Windows 8 - Restore Point - Create in Windows 8

How to enable Driver Verifier:

Start > type "verifier" without the quotes > Select the following options -

1. Select - "Create custom settings (for code developers)"
2. Select - "Select individual settings from a full list"
3. Check the following boxes -
- Special Pool
- Pool Tracking
- Force IRQL Checking
- Deadlock Detection
- Security Checks (Windows 7 & 8)
- DDI compliance checking (Windows 8)
- Miscellaneous Checks
4. Select - "Select driver names from a list"
5. Click on the "Provider" tab. This will sort all of the drivers by the provider.
6. Check EVERY box that is NOT provided by Microsoft / Microsoft Corporation.
7. Click on Finish.
8. Restart.

Important information regarding Driver Verifier:

- If Driver Verifier finds a violation, the system will BSOD.

- After enabling Driver Verifier and restarting the system, depending on the culprit, if for example the driver is on start-up, you may not be able to get back into normal Windows because Driver Verifier will flag it, and as stated above, that will cause / force a BSOD.

If this happens, do not panic, do the following:

- Boot into Safe Mode by repeatedly tapping the F8 key during boot-up.

- Once in Safe Mode - Start > Search > type "cmd" without the quotes.

- To turn off Driver Verifier, type in cmd "verifier /reset" without the quotes.
・ Restart and boot into normal Windows.

If your OS became corrupt or you cannot boot into Windows after disabling verifier via Safe Mode:

- Boot into Safe Mode by repeatedly tapping the F8 key during boot-up.

- Once in Safe Mode - Start > type "system restore" without the quotes.

- Choose the restore point you created earlier.

How long should I keep Driver Verifier enabled for?

It varies, many experts and analysts have different recommendations. Personally, I recommend keeping it enabled for at least 24 hours. If you don't BSOD by then, disable Driver Verifier.

My system BSOD'd, where can I find the crash dumps?

They will be located in %systemroot%\Minidump

Any other questions can most likely be answered by this article:

The service tag number is the serial number -- it's on your invoice, and on the box the system came in.  It it can also be obtained by calling Dell support with the order information.  You can also report it stolen in case anyone attempts to contact Dell.

A:Bought a used laptop, is my Windows 7 Genuine?

First the rearm count in the registry shows if the 7 installation wasn't already activated you could extend the trial period. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...-120-days.html

If you have checked for Windows updates during the last two months and they installed witout any program or prompting for the WGA the original disk the previous owner had was the genuine while the other... is considered "casual copying".(not the best situation for you) You may want to consider buying your own disk as far as that is concerned.

To save on price you can opt for an upgrade disk of the same edition since you are planning to pass the pc along. Refer to Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

I'm not a tech guru, but managed to set up my router which is working fine on my current laptop. Both desktop, router and old laptop all run XP.

Now I bought a shiny new laptop with Windows 7, and I can't connect. I've tried auto connect, manual connect...entering the Key each time...and it won'd go. I called the store and they said maybe my router won't work with Windows 7. Can this be?

When I set up router, I secured it (don't ask me how...followed some instructions I got from the Internet which I've since discarded), but here's the specs:

Key Provided Automatically: (802.1x): 0
Network Authentication Type: open
Data Encryption Type: WEP

A:Laptop Very Slow Since Bought, have no Idea Why...

This probably isnt' the "best" solution but do you feel like doing a "clean" install and starting over? Also have a SSD Hard drive..

anytime my computer feels slow or crappy.. i totally wipe it (all my stuff is on external harddrives anyway, i just have to transfer my bookmarks in firefox etc.. )

I had a Lenovo totally pre-installed with all kinds of crap.. and I just downloaded the windows 8 core dvd and installed it through USB..

I also am about to totally wipe it again in a few days as I just downloaded the new build of windows 8.1 core with updates (November version)

i know this solution sucks to keep reinstalling windows but in my experience, thats all i've ever seen really get rid of anything that could be causing issues.. (old drivers, junk. etc..)

then after you do a totally clean fresh install just do a system image through windows itself or Acronis, other image programs..

Hello,

I have a sony viao bought in UK. Currently I am in India and I purchased a mobile 3G internet which is working on my indian laptop (also a sony viao) but not working on my UK laptop.The internet fails to start altogether on the UK laptop. The internet comany was not able to help much either. I am unable to find any information on what might be different in the UK hardware or software to make it work and was under the impression that all the sony viao laptops in the world are the same. Any help on this one please on what I might be missing?

Kind Regards,

A:3G mobile internet not working on UK bought laptop

What does "The internet fails to start" mean?

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I would like to do a clean install of Win 7 on it and am wondering if I have any options. The sticker itself is attached, but the key is unreadable. It is a Toshiba about 4 years old. The seller may or may not have the recovery discs and paperwork/box that came with it and will get back to me in a few days. My guess is that the key is only printed on the laptop itself. Is there anything I can do in this situation? Would it be best to inquire through Microsoft or Toshiba?

Thanks

...by the way this is a wonderful forum

A:Bought used laptop - Win 7 key has rubbed off of sticker - options?

Toshiba used to ship those discs for free - then they started charging 30 US dollars.

i bought a lenovo laptop a few days before from a local shop(carrefour)
they said it have 2 years guarantee but when ichecked up the lenovo websites
it shows only 100 days left from the guarantee(265 day passed)
what does it means?
does it means that someone else were using my laptop before i buy it?

A:Why the new laptop i bought have only 100 days gurantee left?

If it is only a few days old, I'd contact Carrefour and ask them. I wouldn't want any confusion on the warranty.

It may mean that the warranty started the day the laptop was shipped from Lenovo to Carrefour, but that would seem unusual to me. I'd expect a warranty to start on the day of the retail sale to you.

I just purchased an Acer Ferrari 4000 and as I was trying to connect to the internet, my LAN line says 'A network cable is unplugged. Now, I tried two different working LAN connections, and I know they are working because I confirmed it with another computer. Also, I am positive my newtork card is working because I pinged my offline IP and had 4 packages sent and 4 recieved. No matter what LAN connection I plug in, my laptop doesnt seem to detect it and it still says 'A newtork cable is unplugged'. My TC/IP is all set to automatically detect IP addresses. All my little pins are lined up and the connection seems to be there.... my computer just doesnt seem to detect it.... any ideas?

A:Just bought a laptop and am having problems keeping connection?

Since sometimes both connections drop, here are some things you can try here.
Change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
Try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.
Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

Hi all, I just bought my HP Omen from Best Buy today, and after getting it set up, I installed Steam and Farcry 4.  I started it up, and it all ran smoothly, even on ultra graphics settings.  However, when anything big happens in the game (explosions, lots of enemies on screen, etc.), the game seems to skip and lag.  Is this something wrong on the laptop's end or is it something related to the game itself?  My desktop is able to run the game somewhat well.  Thanks!Jesse Bell

The main hard drive where the windows were initially installed (C doesn't exist anymore... I generated a list of list of basic and dynamics volumes which are installed using command prompt but nothing... The only one appeared was my USB key, which contained the backup installation i'm running on. And that same USB key took the letter C:
So, to make it short: Hard drive randomly died and he erased every bit of existence in my computer.

 Hi,I am noticing a strange issue with my recently bought laptop . Attaching some pictures for more details. To me it seems some kind of gap or break in the LCD display.I hope this can be worked out as it is still under a month when I bought it. Please suggest.?  ?  ThanksAD

It could possibly be due to a faulty data cable and at worst the screen itself. Only solution would be to have it serviced by a Lenovo technician as it is most likely hardware related.

A:Unable to install Wi-Fi driver on recently bought laptop.

According to that error log the 1st install has not been completed because a reboot is required,
have you actually rebooted??, the other errors state cannot install due to previous install waiting to complete.

My son uses his HP15 laptop at home at his desk, rarely transporting it.  He has never dropped it and is a gentle user.The left hinge appears to be broken / defective, and the display case is separating.  For now, we're just leaving the screen open all the time, but it's a little inconvenient and the problem is certainly concerning for a laptop less than 2 years old.Looking at the forum, it seems like a common issue.We are HP fans in general, so I hope this issue can be resolved.Please help.- Steve

Ok I just bought a used Dell laptop with win7 Home 64 & from my understanding the boot disk is actually now on a partition?

How do I access this partition in order to completely format the computer & reinstall a nice clean setup?

Thanks.

1. I set my LCD brightness to the highest, but sometimes when Im just using the computer, it will darken for some reason and drop to half of its brightness. I have to then do it again manual to the setting I wish. Has happened about 4 times in 4 days. Whats up with that?

2. Im typing, and sometimes the cursor or point to where im typing will jump back a few words. I have to manually click back and fix the errors - very annoying! Has happened about 5 times in 4 days. Whats up with that?

3. I dont know if Toshiba gipped me a bit on this machine, but I know the specs are suppose to be 40gig HD and 512 DDR ram, but when I went into my hardware profiles, it says its only 37.2GIG HD, and 448 DDR ram. Whats up with that? I know sometimes its not on the exact number, but cmon thats quite the difference.

Hello, I bought another refurbished HP laptop from Colorado Computer Outlet back on May 17th and am having a problem with one of the memory modules but when I checked on the HP site, it shows that the warranty started on March 17th and has already expired. I should have until August 17th or thereabouts. What should I do to get this fixed? Thanks,John

Im having lots of issues with Windows 8.1 so I have to reinstall. Store/Settings arent opening. 5 minutes or so of a black screen and cursor on Start up.

I attempted to go here: Upgrade Windows with only a product key - Microsoft Windows Help

and use that for reinstalling, but it isnt excepting my product key.

How can I reinstall Windows 8.1? Am I really going to have to re-install Windows 8 from scratch and then Update again to Win 8.1?!
