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.)

Much of the lure surrounding Microsoft's long-rumored Surface Mini was the notion that it'd come in at a lower price point compared to its full-sized brother. That project was ultimately scrapped and instead, we got the Surface Pro 3 -...

This was sounding so promising then I got to 2GB RAM....

Have a look at your PC now - if you are running next to nothing over standard windows services, then you are probably somewhere around 1.2GB. Add an email client, some virus software a few Chrome Tabs and you will already be swapping away to page file as the OS starts to worry about memory and things will start to grind. How much would 2 more MB cost? Shame as otherwise it sounds quite a capable little machine.

Hello.I really need help.
I own a GEFORCE GTX 550 Ti.
Its fan gone broke so I bought a new one.
When I removing the stuck screw of my GraphicCard, I accidentally hit and remove two tiny parts which I can't name.
So I ReAttach the removed component via taping it with ElectricTape.
I lost the other one so I get something like that from other broken GraphicCard and tape it with ElectricTape.
I test the GraphicCard without fan yet, the result, it turns ON, the PC reads the GraphicCard but restarts when the MOBO's name appears.
I can't attach the fan yet because it was under warranty and I wanna return it if my GraphicCard is broken due of this matter.
***Now the problem is, Do my beloved GEFORCE GTX 550 Ti will still work or it is permanently broken due of this two tiny component?***

I attach a photo regarding "that" two tiny parts.It's sad.Please Help.

A:Geforce GTX 550ti removed tiny parts

You might as well try installing the new fan because from your description of what you did you already voided the warranty. My guess is that those tiny pieces have a function otherwise they wouldn't be there in the first place. If your graphics card doesn't work anymore, you're just going to have to buy a new one.

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

Recently bought a MS mouse.

Have found that when I move the scroll wheel up or down more than really slowly
a little round icon appears with an up arrow and a down arrow. If the cursor is
above the icon, the page automatically scrolls upward without stopping, and the reverse for the cursor being below that icon. It starts without warning and always goes farther than I want and it goes so fast it's difficult, at best, to react to it before I'm way past what I want to see.

When I click, the thing goes away.

Any way to totally delete this annoying feature other than throwing the mouse away and
getting another Logitech?


A:Microsoft mouse scrolling so annoying

Wow I know that feeling. I had a MS mouse that did the same thing. Never could figure out how to stop it from doing that. I search over the internet and never found a answer. Even tried its support site. I ended up getting rid of it and going back to a Logitech.

I am running XP SP 2 on Intel Motherboard DH55TC, Core i5 CPU. UAA High Definition Audio class driver is resulting in high hardware interrupts that uses upto 10 to 12% of CPU.

We would need the model number to tell you a reason to why it is not working, and if there is a fix.. If there is no supported driver for windows7, you may need to attempt to use a Windows Vista driver and run it in compatibility mode.

If these options are not possible, you may have to purchase a new one.

Before I get to the poll a little history is in order I got my first droid retiring my GS moved to iOS from WinMO few years ago But I think it is the most 920 or ATIV Lumia S regrettable of decisions I made Because despite the fact that I always went for the higher end droid at least of its time e g Desire SGS SGSII Sensation SGSIII to name few I never found a stable solidly performing android phone They all suffered from random crashes reboots sluggishness hang ups and I only install apps - I need nothing more They all have various annoying quirks as well e g SGS ATIV S or Lumia 920 III doesn t want to find any WiFi network at times folders on home screen will randomly open at ATIV S or Lumia 920 their own my older Sensation s screen would stop responding quot in some places quot etc IMHO almost all droids I owned had great hardware but a crappy OS Few months ago I got my hands on Lumia and used it along side my Sensation SGS III for months and my views about WP totally changed It easily outperforms all those multi-core droids with its dated single core SoC being absolutely rock solid and very easy to use UI unlike androids copycat of iOS It is time again to jump ship only thing to decide is should I get ATIV S or Lumia though I m tilting toward the later due to better support upgrade cycle of Nokia compared to Samsung However SuperAMOLED display of ATIV S will be more battery friendly and it also have expansion slot ATIV S comparison Lumia specs Specs of HTC X amp Accord rumored Lumia along side Samsung ATIV S So what you guys would pick nbsp

A:ATIV S or Lumia 920

I'm firmly set on the Lumia 920 right now. I've always had a thing for Nokia handsets, and until Android hit the scene I only ever owned them. Plus, I don't think I'll miss the lack of storage expansion (my SGS3 has 16GB now and I'm only using 1GB of it!), and I think Nokia will be quicker and more supportive with its own apps than Samsung will be.

I've been looking around for a good and inexpensive wifi radio.
I enjoy streaming radio stations from around the world. I have winamp on my computer and it works excellent.
Are there any wifi radios that will play streaming radio stations, like my winamp player on my computer plays?
I don't know if this is the right place to ask this...
Let me know what you think.

Remember streaming radio stations via the internet is my primary need.


A:Looking for a good Wi-Fi radio...

Segregate the components.

WiFi is a connection to a router (or a Satellite which is not satisfactory for your use).

Once you have Internet via WiFi, then your Winamp will suffice.

I fear however, you wan a radio on one side of the residence when your Internet is on the other AND don't want to use your PC to make the Winamp active . . .

There is a folder inside the GTA Vice City game folder called MP3. You can place your own MP3s into this folder. Inside the game, scroll through the various radio stations until you get to the one that is usually the last one ("Wave 103"). There will now be a new station listed as MP3 Player after the Wave 103 station. Select this, and you're now listening to whatever music you placed into that folder. It will play in random order.Click to expand...

This quote is directly from Rockstar Games support site. If the files that you copied from their CD's are indeed .mp3 files then they should play randomly on the radio station named "mp3".

Yes, you can take that hard drive out of the 2k machine and read it just fine in Vista. What you can't do is take your OS drive from 2k and boot another machine with it, but I don't think that is what you were asking.

I installed WinXP once more, installed SP2 and then the Sound Driver.
Again it didnt work.

Then I remembered that i actually had changed a sound card setting in the bios. (No i did not diasble the soundcard )

The case i have installed this Mboard in has a front pannel.
And the Mboard has a front panel connector.

To connect the front pannel I had turned to the manual to get the rigtht pins set up.
The manual states on page 2-31 that:
"The default setting for this connector is legacy AC'97 audio, if you want to use the High Definition (Azalia) audio features, set the AC97 & Azalia Link A in the BIOS to Azalia."

Well this case does not use a high-definition audio front panel, so of course i had diasbled the Azalia Link i Bios.
(It was enabled in the Bios even when the manual said that the default setting was AC'97, ow well ... )

For "fun" i just tried to put it back to the setting it was when i installed the Mboard (Azalia), and then, bingo, the sound card worked in windows.Click to expand...

seems like a very rare problem.

Lots of valuable information in that file I'd like to access. I was able to create a new Outlook file in safe mode so I guess the program is OK.

It was suggested to me recently the cause may have been due to me having Microsoft Service Pack 1 at the time. I had not updated to Service Pak 2 (which I now believe has been updated to Service Pak 3). Has anyone had experience with this and, if so, do you think there's a chance that if I update my Service Pak that I might still have a chance of recovering the data I had in my original Outlook file?

A:Microsoft ACPI compliant system? too many?

That is not a normal thing imo.

In Bios;

Make sure your Advanced setting for Plug and Play OS is set to Yes.

Then, under Power, set the ACPI APIC Support to Disabled for now.

Boot and see what, if anything, changes.

I just bought a Razer Reclusa keyboard and the only problem I'm having is that it does not "power up" so to speak until after post. If I needed to get into the BIOS I could press [del] a million times and nothing would happen. Once windows starts up, it works fine. Is this just the way the keyboard is? I'd appreciate any info.

A:Microsoft Razer Reclusa Keyboard

Haven't looked up that keyboard, but I think I know what it is (the fix) anyway.

You need to get into your BIOS (with another keyboard, ideally PS/2 if you have the connection)
Then set Enable for USB Keyboard/Mouse support

I think that may be a bit of a mind teaser to do, but I'm sure you'll work it out

Well I was in the market Zune Microsoft 30GB for a new mp player as I broke my old Creative Zen MicroPhoto and ended up buying a Zune on ebay they are not actually available for sale in stores in Australia First Microsoft Zune 30GB off I was expecting a much larger box for it to arive in I was kind of suprised that it was as small as it was not that its really small though The layout of the box is kinda neat though Headphones that came with it are pretty good for default earbuds they also are magnetic and have small little clips on the back so you can clip together back to back Nifty and rather handy I have found Video quality is very nice for an mp player I think Although I dont use it for video just music I have watched the little videos that came on it I thought they were very nice quality It has WiFi novelty maybe but not a feature I really care about and think I will ever use Interface looks nice and performs well although I do prefer the interface of my old Zen MicroPhoto I am dissapointed that you cant use the device as a portable hard drive I have read that you can do a couple of changes to your windows registry and it will show up as a portable hard drive But I dont really care about this I have flash drives that are sufficient for my portable storage needs Its not perfect and has no extraordinary features but If you are in the market for a mp player and don t like iPods as I do consider a Zune If anyone has any questions about the Zune I will be happy to help you as best I can nbsp

I have a ATI Radeon 9200 AGP graphics card however it only has hardware acceleration when i install Microsofts drivers. When i install the ATI Catylist drivers then dxidag shows accelaration greyed out. I have an AGP 3.0 slot.
Is there a specific driver that i am suppose to install as this card was given to me second hand?
What could be the cause of this?

The radio station doesn't come through the speakers of my computer, as others have in one thread I've found on this site, only my subwoofer. Has anyone else had this problem? Any answers?

A:Radio station heard through my subwoofer

try moving your woofer and wires around to see if reception varies. You are probably picking up an AM station because something around it is acting like a receiver

Do the wires have a splice anywhere where you twisted them together? Or is the wiring in your house really old - it might not be grounded proper

Most of the time when i am listening to internet radio the broadcast will stop and then resume, it will do this consistently regardless of what the computer is doing. The computer is on a wireless connection and other computers on the same network, which are hard wired, do not have the same problem. Additionally, the computer is running vista and i do know that that may be a problem. The internet connection is cable and maintains a consistent 700 kbs download, so internet speed is not an issue. Can anyone offer some solutions so that i may end this issue.

I just bought a Microsoft laser mouse 6000 from Newegg (specs here). I'm trying to get the back and forward buttons working in Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty). I did some modifications to configuration files as suggested by Google search results. Unfortunately, that screwed it up so that the scroll wheel controls back and forward, and the real back and forward buttons don't work at all.

The imwheelrc config file (/etc/X11/imwheel/imwheelrc) says that the xf86config file needs to allow for enough mouse buttons. But locating xf86config in the terminal returns nothing.

What can I do??

A:Microsoft Zune

Yeah, I bought one the same day they came out. I was looking at an iPod. Some friends have had problems with them so I decided to check out the Zune. It can not be used as a HDD at this time as you already know.

Funny thing is, or I found it amusing at least, is that right out of the box it requires a firmware update! Looks like something sooooo new, MS would have already done this before release. The update only takes a few minutes, no biggy really. BUGS???I have not encountered anything strage operationally.

One thing(s) to consider.....the iPod's I believe have adjustable EQ's where the ZUNE only has presets to choose from. The ear buds that come with it really dont sound that me at least. It is ONLY compatable with XP, forget about using 2000. I had to upgrade my laptop to XP to use the Zune, didnt realize this at purchase. Not compatible with Vista of yet anyways. You will need to buy a DVD converter to copy movies to the Zune. Or try and find a free one....they dont exist believe me. (my problem now is finding one that works well, there are many out there)

The Zune software you DL on your PC is very easy to use. The screen itself on the Zune looks very very good. It comes pre-loaded with several music videos and short movie clips. The Zune syncs easy with the PC, no problems at far....remember this is by MS!

So far I am happy with mine....I have already DL'd around 300 songs on it. You can search your music by band, genre, song etc. Storing pictures on it is very similiar. So far I would recommend you buying one!

Suddenly, my laptop started to have problems booting. When I press the power button, it starts to power up, but quits after a few seconds (3-5). I can hear the drvies/fans start to spin up, and then it just powers off. The initial screen displays for about .5 seconds -too fast to read any messages.
I have it configured to boot from a CD/DVD, so I tried that, but it didn't work either - UNTIL - I removed the hard drive itself. Now I can boot fine from a bootable CD (typically a LINUX Live CD). I even replaced the HD with a new one, but its doing the same thing with the new drive.

A:Apparantly Microsoft "Needs My Help"

Your problem IS with ffdshow.

ffdshow is much more than just a simple movie viewer... it also replaces several windows media format CODEC's with it's own versions of these.

Most games use several Win XP CODEC's, which in your case, have now been overwritten by beta, open source, untested or unsupported CODEC's. Oblivion, for example, uses the Windows CODEC For MPG2 video streams. Users of both ffdshow, DVD X-Copy Platinum and dozens of other 3rd party packages have been experiencing this problem as these packages replace the supported, tested Win XP CODEC's with their own.

My best advice to you would be to try removing all unneccessary 3rd party applications that have replace XP CODEC's, or try various 3rd party CODEC downloads with your fingers crossed one will yield the same compatibility as the stock Windows XP versions.

A:USB Flash Drive Loses Data When removed

Welcome to Techspot !
When you reformatted back to windows you may not have set the drive properly. Each company is a little different but basically they need a small app(permanently installed) to maintain Data and system functions, etc. to work in different machines. I suggest you go to the manufacturer's website and confirm the correct way to reset the unit and how to install it's setup file.

Just bought this after a previous post and thought you guys might like a review.

This product is more for fun than actual security. You can use this for boot but you can still type in the password making it nothing more than a convience to log in. The only other thing that it does is remember login and password information. If I where to guess it creates a file of these passwords actually making your system a little less secure. However, saying you have a fingerprint scanner is cool in an odd sort of way.

I LIKED Radio Netscape.

I could open it, click on the type of music I liked,
and it would PLAY.

Now AOD has got their dirty fingers in it and I've
been screwing with it for over 3 hours and STILL
haven't got one d#$%^& song to play!!!

I've updated, upgraded, and signed onto more
crap than I can count, read thru volumes of
"help" that are no help at all, and I still can only
get the advertising that brags about how wonderful
the new AOL radio is. HOGWASH!!!

When I click on the banner that's supposed to
lead me to something, it leads me NOWHERE.

Can anyone direct me to a simple to use online
radio? PLEASE!?

Thank you ever so kindly!!

You need the third party drivers for SATA. 130MB is a well-known hard disk size limitation - the drivers should help you around that.

Please help,
have installed wireless desktop set, ps2 connection only for keyboard and usb/ps2 connection for mouse. Mouse works fine with either connection, the keyboard is a nightmare.
Works fine on one PC reboots fine and no issues. The other PC doesn't get past POST. Blank screen and no beeps after POST or messages. Both PCs run on XP Professional.
Have even done a total clean install to get rid of any software or device conflicts, only has monitor, keyboard and mouse attached. Works fine with old cabled keyboard and mouse.

PS. works if I boot with old keyboard/mouse and then change over to wireless whilst running but when reboots same old problem

Please please help

A:Microsoft Wireless Keyboard Problem

Could be that the PC is too old to accomodate a wireless keyboard.
Check that the powersupply for that keyboard-sender is ON before you boot.
You sure it's wireless PS/2 and that the keyboard is not also USB?
If so, check USB settings for keyboard in BIOS.

Hi. I like MSN Radio, but I cannot use it. Ever since I fresh-installed XP, I haven't been able to listen to it. Everytime I try to, I get the error saying

Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

I've tried tons of stations, and NONE of them work. Also, it won't play MPEGs. It gives the same error. It's set for the default player for ALL file types. Is this fixable?

A:Accessing hard disk removed from crashed Windows XP laptop

sounds like it's reading the disc as a cd or virtual drive
try right clicking on the drive and use explore maybe it needs to be mounted
check the software that came with the inclosure (if any)
you may need to get an ide adapter and run it from the ide cable to read as a reg HDD.
be warned that if you do get the OS to see drive as a standard eide drive on boot OS may want to run chdsk DON"T let it.

I just moved into a hotel for university (our college bought a hotel and turned it into our residence) and everyone's computer speakers pick up radio signals. It didn't happen before I moved in here..

If your computer is idle or playing music or whatever the same faint radio signal can be heard from my speakers and sub-woofer.

Anybody have a solution to this? Someone suggested "shielding" for a similar problem but I'm not sure what that is or how to do that..


A:Speakers pick up radio signals

Well I've never heard of this problem before. I dont think your speakers are picking up the signal through the airwaves, but it is probably coming in through some other route and being amplified by your speakers.

Do you know what station you are picking up and where it is broadcast from?
Is it an AM waveband channel with a transmitter source nearby?
Does the sound go away when you disconnect the speakers from your PC, but leave them powered up?

Radio broadcasts are at very high frequencies, so if you are picking something up, it will likely be on an amplitude modulated carrier (AM waveband), which may be coming in through the mains supply circuit. I'm only guessing here, but if you can get hold of a mains filter, then give it a try. Be sure to use it with both your speaker's psu and with your PC, though I suspect the speaker's will prove the more likely culprit.

Does anyone else here use a wireless keyboard and mouse? My mouse died a couple days ago, so I was going to purchase a new wireless one. Well Bestbuy was sold out of every single wireless mouse except for the $90 ones. I looked over and saw this really nice looking Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse for only $60. I said, heck with it. I bought it, and I love it. Just thought I'd share my experience with you all. I bought the Microsoft "Basic Wireless Optical Desktop"

Please, someone tell me how I can print horizontally, as opposed to vertically?, I have tried, but haven't fathomed it out, it would be useful for banners / car stickers. Yes, I know there are sites for car stickers, but I'd like to be able to do it on "Word"

A:Microsoft Word

Easy Peasy - Simply change the paper type from portrait to landscape in either:- file->print->setup or file->page layout

one of those two has the option, and then your paper should change in word (if you use layout view, if you use normal view you probably wouldn't notice)

Lately (last couple of days) I've noticed that when my speakers are on min volume, I can hear one of the local radio stations through them. (more noticable with headphones). When I do some gaming and turn them up it can't be heard (but obviously still there), so my question is what would be an effective form of shielding. Someone I spoke to stated that it might be the modem picking up the RF.

A:Radio wave shielding

I've hear of this before & probably not the modem. If the speaker wires are close to 31" long, they tend to act like an antenna for FM frequencies. I think the fix was installing an inline resistor.

Good afternoon,

I use a spread sheet which contains Check Boxes, that I manually tick to show a task has been fully completed. I have a basic formula that calculates returned items, and once it reaches 0 (all returned) I tick the box. I wish to have the Check Box auto-tick itself once the returned items count reaches 0. I'm damned certain this is possible, but beyond my abilities. I know you can have formulas to display text once a Check Box is ticked, I am kinda trying to do it the other way around.

Thanks for any help

You are correct, it is possible.

What you need to do is learn the Visual Basic for Applications coding in Excel. Then you can add code that runs every time the sheet calculates (basically when something changes on the page). The code can check the status of a cell and change the status of another cell (or object in your case) based on criteria you have coded.

I'm not a programmer but playing with Excel Macros (VBA coding) and manipulating excel cells is a long time hobby of mine.

The easiest way to learn is to record Macro's and then study the code. It is easier learning the code if know first hand what it does. After you are familiar with how the code works, you will be surprised at how easy it is to code your own macros. Once you have the macro working for you, it is easy to move the code and have it run every time the sheet loads, calculates, closes, or several other possibilities.
