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.)

While waiting for a reply:
I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: Hardware Diagnostics ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
Hard Drive Diagnostics (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.
Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Free Online AntiMalware Resources (read the details at the link)
There are also free, bootable antivirus disks at this link: Free Online AntiMalware Resources - Bootable Disks
The BSOD is a STOP 0x124.
This is most likely a hardware error - which includes:
- compatibility issues
- low-level driver problems
Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems due to the sptd.sys driver.
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ
I believe that you have Comodo installed on your system. Try uninstalling it to see if that helps.
AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.
Please uninstall all ATI stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
Then, download and install a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD
Then use the ATI uninstall manager to uninstall the Catalyst Control Center (CCC).
If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem in perfmon /report, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.
If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.
Further info on BSOD error messages available at: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html
The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs:
3RD PARTY DRIVERS PRESENT IN THE DUMP FILES
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please either update the older drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers.

I'm just about ready to upgrade my video card from a NVidia 6600 with 256MB Memory to a NVidia 8800GTS (BFG-OC) with 640MB Memory. But before I do that; is there any credible information about the G81 aka 8900 Series chip?
I would hate to buy a nice new 8800GTS to find out a week later that the 8900GTS is released.
ATI is going to gain market share with the 5000 series cards. Nvidia can't let this happen. I assume they know this. The 300 series card have to be coming soon. I have been waiting for them since I have never used an ATI card, however I am thinking of getting a 5850. Does anyone know how long we have to wait for the 300 series cards? Thanks.

My laptop is from this series http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...F68hCxauiA-bHg and I'm not able to get any audio through my tv when I connect via HDMI. I was previously looking at this thread No audio coming out of HDMI and decided to try my luck here with the same issue, just with my laptop model.
As this PC was upgraded from Vista to Win 7, was all the device drivers also updated? e.g. Video driver (which would include HDMI)? Are you using the Gateway sound driver? If not that can also be a potential problem as many times non-Vendor sound drivers (e.g. the generic Windows HD Audio Codec) either do not work or work correctly. Depending on how the HDMI audio is generated, it may be generated from S/PDIF that is generated by the audio hardware.
When you plug in the HDMI cable does it automatically change the defaul audio playback device from Speakers (your PC sound card) to the HDMI? If not, what happens when you manually change the default playback device to HDMI (what is needed for HDMI audio)?

grep wrote:The battery indicator in Windows was showing something like "65% not charging" the whole time.The display "nn%, not charging" is normal when the battery conservation mode has been activated. The thinking is that the batteries in laptops which spend most of their time on mains power will have longer useful life if not kept at 100% charge all of the time. The value for "nn" seems to vary. I have one version of the "Energy Management" application that uses "80" for "nn", whereas the current version of the app uses "60" for "nn". So the value of "65" is not out of step with these values. I cannot offer you any advice to extricate yourself from the bad place where you now find yourself. It needs someone with more knowledge than I.

Hi @guru99! I'm sorry to say that, but this error may indicate that your HDD is failing and needs to be replaced. If your notebook is still in warranty you can contact the support, but in case you're out of warranty and would like a guide on replacing the hard drive yourself I would be able to recommend you some replacement. Hope this helps and best of luck!

I have Pavilon dm4 and i was upgraded my operation system (windows 7) to windows 10 . after 2 months i need to recover my old operating system windows 7 but i dont have recovery of my labtop so could you please provide me a recovery link of my labtop to download it and install itKing regards
Baselo Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!What will work is restoring your machine to its original factory condition using HP Recovery Media.This is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks. You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update". If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB. Click the "+" symbol to expand that entry and click on Order Media for details.Or, if you prefer, you can do the same by contacting HP Customer Service:If you live in the US or Canada, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html#section1If you live elsewhere, contact information is on this page: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.htmlNOTE: After you get through, stay on the line until you are finally able to talk to some one -- it can take a while!---------------------------------------However, HP Customer Support is generally not available on the weekends, so you might have to wait until Monday to contact them.---------------------------------------If HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you can check are: http://www.computersurgeons.com/ and http://www.restoredisks.com/Good Luckhttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/pavilon-dm4-recovery/td-p/5733414

Hi there, I am having problems trying to make a clean install of Windows 7 on my HP DV6000. I have rpeviously formatted and installed operating systems on many computers, but this one is giving me to fight!
The main problem is that the instalation never continues from the "Windows is loading files" at the start of the CD booting!
Does HP or this pavilon have any issues?
help will be appreciated!
Make your HP REcovery Disks or a backup image so you have a path back to factory condition. You can also extract apps from the HP REcovery disks using this method: http://www.sevenforums.com/installat...tml#post488270
Next make sure you have the latest BIOS version update from HP Support Downloads webpage for your model, which is safest installed from Windows.
CHeck also in the BIOS for SATA controller setting: try AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.
Now wipe the HD to get the cleanest possible slate: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Clean Install Windows 7
If install fails again, remove all but 2gb of RAM and test your ram with memtest for 5-6 passes. http://www.memtest86.com/download.html
Then test your HD using maker's full diag/repair CD scan: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287

i have a Pavilion and when watching videos or listening to music the volume will go away or turn way down but the actual volume settings do not change just the volume its self. I have tried reinstalling the drivers and ran all the test. I have also shut off my mic and told it to do nothing in the auto volume settings yet it still randomly decides to turn its self down. I have spend hours with tech support doing the same things over and over and even rebooted my entire system. I have only had this HP for a month. never had a problem in 7 years with my old hp and this one is about to go in the trash.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/sound-issues-pavilon/td-p/5850816

I am running Window's XP Pro 2002 with Service Pack 2. I downloaded the driver off HP's website but trying to install it I get the message that the card reader is not installed.
Hello - I would be extremely grateful if someone coudl hep me, please!! I haven't used this particular laptop for years, but I desperately need to get back on it to retrieve some files. The laptop seems to work fine, but when I've turned it on a black screen appears with Enter Password in blue - it doesn't look like the normal Windows page that I can remember. It looks as though it's in some sort of safe mode or something. I don't know what this password is. If I enter it incorrectly too many times it says System Disabled  Can anyone please advise?

Graphic card is realy low, and i thinking to add one more and that is the qyeston, can i add 1 more good graphic card to my laptop ???
robcioslaw Sorry to say this, but you're operating under a misunderstanding, as laptops to do not have customer-replaceable graphics "cards". Instead, they have a graphics processor (GPU) that is soldered to the system board which also contain the CPU chip. While these are sometimes replaceable, that involves sending the PC to an HP Service Center and paying a LOT of money to have it disassembled, have the system board replaced, and have it reassembled -- typically considerably more money than simply buying a more powerful laptop. So basically, it is not practical to upgrade the graphics on a laptop.

I kept getting a blue screen with an error code 0xc0000185. I ordered the recovery Disks from HP but when I went to recover the machine, it sort of reads the cd and then I get the HP logo and the circle just spins and spins. We left it alone for hours and nothing. I ran a Hard Drive Test and it said Hard Drive Short DST Check: FAILEDthen gave this Failure ID: 63621R-7AQ87K-MFPV6K-60XL03Product K7U05UA HARD DRIVE 1 SYSTEM EXTENSIVE TEST: FAILED Any idea what I can do? It is just out of warranty- Of Course.
Hi, The 24 character error id does confirm a failure of the short Disk Self Test and would indicate that the Hard Drive is failing and needs to be replaced. This is also consistent with the issues you describe. If you would like a guide on replacing the Hard Drive yourself, please let me know.

My computer guy tells me this is a short caused by the motherboard. I am not sure why. He says the motherboard will have to be replaced. My computer is almost three years old. It cost about $800 new. The motherboard will be about $150, "labor costs" almost another $100. So, in total, the fix would be 1/4th of the cost of laptop three years ago. The new question is whether that is worth it, and that's not even all that is wrong. The hinge is also displaced, a problem which apparently cannot be fixed. And I had to replace my hard drive about a year ago, because apparently it was "failing." In a two year old laptop. Thank you so much, employees of hp, for helping me with my problem. I hope my sarcasm is made clear enough. If and when I buy a new laptop, you can be sure it will not be an hp. I have had nothing but problems with every hp computer I've ever bought.

I have found a work around for this fault with the USB failure - ENSURE YOU POWER THE MACHINE OFF - DO NOT RESTART.
Its almost like the restart doesn't initialise the device correct, thus causing a failure.

Keep what you got and see what's comming next. I have a 8600GT as a stopgap until something better comes out. There has been talk of a Nvidia 256bit card to fill the gap between the 8600's and 8800's. I can't fit a 8800 in my case, if I could I would just get the 8800GTS 320mb now. If I were you, wait for the game to upgrade instead of upgrading and waiting for the game. Your X1900GT is no slouch either.

I want to invest in a SDD to replace my dying westgate harddrive. I've set my mind on Corsair but I want to know the difference between the eXtreme series and the Performance series (http://www.corsair.com/products/ssd_home.aspx). According to the website, X SDDs reads a little bit faster, but the P series writes a little bit faster. The only other thing is that the P series is around £100 cheaper!
So is the X series worth the extra £100?
Hi everyone. I have my headphones plugged in and am getting poor sound quality out of them. My computer says that the sound is coming through my speakers, but its not (its just coming through the headphones.) I've attached a picture of what the comp's showing me for reference. I've tried going to the Sound menu and making the headphones the default device, with no luck. This issue seemed to happen after I was done using Google video chat with my headphones plugged in. I am trying to get the sound quality in my headphones back to normal. They work with every other device. Please help!
Did you try re-plugging the headphones yet? Is it jacked or USB?http://www.sevenforums.com/sound-audio/373631-cpu-says-sound-coming-through-speakers-but-its-coming-via-headphones.html

I'm getting really pissed off for the newer games. Some of them requires an Direct X 10 video cards to run it properly. Do you guys think 7900 SLI can run newer games smoothly such as Lost Planet? On my computer I test my system requirements and it failed for recommendations. It says that it requires Dx 10 cards to play smoothly.
I'm sure you will loose some of the gee wiz graphics not using a DX10 card but so far most game makers have been making games that use either DX9 or DX10. As far as lost planet is concerned here is whats posted on their official forums as supported vid cards.
The following is a list of video cards that our R&D labs have tested in conjunction with NVIDIA and ATI, and have been confirmed to work.

If you want 8800GT's, the prices have dropped to about $150 average on newegg which is great considering i got mine for $250. Personally, I'm against SLI, but if you're for it and would have to make a purchase now, go with 2 8800GTS g92 as they're averaging about <$200 (MSI's 8800GTS is on newegg for $177) and they provide some performance over the 8800GT. Since the 9800GTX is basically the same performance as the 8800GTS but more expensive, then forget that.
If you can wait a while to make a purchase, I've heard that the newer 9800GTX+ will have higher stock clocks that will deliver better performance with its newer drivers too, and this card comes out in mid-July. It's supposed to be priced around $230 and it's chip is built on 55nm process. This card sounds attractive, but we'll have to wait for solid reviews of the card first.
ATI... I don't like them, so I'm sorry but I can't tell you anything about them.
How do i find the driver for Intel(R) Pentium(R) processor N- and J-series / Intel(R) Celeron(R) processor N- and J-series EHCI USB - 0F34https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/e04cd70e-ff1f-4848-a058-4203850e690e/intelr-pentiumr-processor-n-and-jseries-intelr-celeronr-processor-n-and-jseries-ehci?forum=w8itproinstall
will the 9 series make the $220 8800gts drop to something like $100 or will it still be $200?
eventually, and then the 10 series will do the same to the 9 series, rinse and repeat. basically as long as its one of the fastest cards the gts will be expensive, when it becomes obsolete (relatively) its price will drop.
from the question i assume you are looking to upgrade, if you want to only spend $100 then i'd say your best bet is an OCed 7600 GT, lotsa bang for your buck, i can run FEAR with pretty high settings with just one of them.
but really, what are you looking for?
Is the nVidia 4200 ti series older than the nVidia FX series?

I have a Netgear DG834GT wireless router which works fine with my PCs which have G series network adapters. But with my laptop with an N series network adapter the signal disconnected every 20 seconds then reconnected; this was only a problem using it at home – everywhere else it connected well. I solved this by using a G series PCMCIA when at home. So far so good.
Now my wife has been given a work laptop which has the same problem. She can’t use a PCMCIA because the laptop has been set to stop her installing the software. So… should we get an N series router? Is there any reason it wouldn’t let us both work PCMCIA-free? And if we should go ahead, any advice on what specs I should get or avoid?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies. The answer in all likelihood is no.
I don't think Apple has produced a Macbook with a power indicator -- the PC vendors are playing follow Apple.

If it currently has Windows XP SP2 installed, you need to install the SP3 upgrade before you do a custom scan at Windows Update/Microsoft Update.
A custom scan will probably display over 100 post-SP3 high priority updates.
I've had my P50 for a while now, and I keep coming back to the Lenovo website from time to time, looking at various accessories that I think I'd like to pick up. However, Lenovo still doesn't list the P-Series in their drop-down menues when trying to tell them which machine you have. Are we supposed to just tell them we have W-Series, and hope we're not asking for a Docking Station, that won't be compatible between the P and W series systems? Does anyone else find it odd, that Lenovo is "hiding" things about the P-Series laptops?

Hey everyone. I currently have a GTX 580 and I want to upgrade that. I was going to get a GTX 770 but I'm now considering waiting for the GTX 800 series. Is it worth waiting for the 800's and when do you think it will be released?
Well supposedly it's coming next year, but since crystal balls don't exist who knows exactly when, maybe in Q1 maybe not, maybe way longer,or if they'll be delayed even further, or how good they'll really be, or if they'll have bugs, or how much they'll cost. If anyone really knows at this point they are not likely allowed to disclose details beyond what I'm sure you've searched on Google otherwise they'd lose their job; and even what may be known now may change as changes and delays happen all the time.
In the end, it's up to you, if you need a new or better card now, buy now, if you want to wait there will always be another generation or series in the works, if the wait is confirmed to be short then sometimes waiting a bit is not a big deal, when the wait is longer waiting may not make sense.

It depends on what you are referring to, there is not real issues with the R series GPU's in terms of display output. Most of the associated problems people are having involve a few things:
Some of the 4k monitors (The AOC for instance) use a very odd way to refresh which caused the display to flicker on the R9 series GPU's which was resolved in a recent patch.
Some high refresh displays using DP
and some others
However I would not worry, most of the problems if any are fixed via patches and catalyst revisions. If the manufacturer has to update something like the this its normally involves something like with their own software or certain things in environments not working together properly. I would not worry, I have done nothing to my PowerColor R9 290X trio and they all work great.

Each of your routers need to be setup individually, and not through each other.
Once setup, plug the one router into the other. You should have no problems.
But your system would be happier with a switch or even a hub.
Are Router A and B the same brand? When each is used alone, do you get the same readings? Do you have VPN? or other security that could be blocking the second router out?
How many of you are running AMD 7000 Series in your gaming PC's. I will really appreciate if you people can tell your benchmark scores cause in reviews they use latest possible hardware which not everyone runs so can't really rely on them.
I've read loads of reviews about these and come to conclusion that 7870 is best bet at the moment to go for as 7970 is way too expensive.
Moment of truth, shall I ditch my 5770 crossfire and buy one 7870 or wait for prices to go down further.
I would hold, the two current series out right now Nvidia's as well.
These are stepping stone improvements. I honestly believe the next generation will come quickly (fall/winter)
and will be a much larger improvement in real world performance.
The best numbers to look at would be at hardware compare where they just take the actual features of the card and put them head to head for you.
Honestly the 7970 is a serious beast it actually blows away my current card that handles bf3 maxed without complaint. Which is actually kind of my point too though your crossfire rig should be getting pretty good frames even if it's a middle card that kind of sucks at anti-aliasing. I'm guessing your overall experience gaming is not too different from mine right now. (see my specs)
So why bother getting in a rush?
I could be wrong about this, but I am seriously expecting a 7 series nvidia and a 8xxx ati before the end of the year.
...and at the moment I don't see the actual need to upgrade considering the list of games on the horizon and the fact most of them have rather middle range recommended reqs.
The new bioshock I think is among the heaviest reqs of any games comming out before the end of summer anyhow.
Normally just to be fair I would recommend a nvidia equiv for you.
Right now there sadly isn't one, even the gtx680 is slower not by a huge amount but it is slower, and more expensive. So unless you wanted to play with some heavy physx games I don't really see why you would want nvidia right now.

I don't have any direct answers, but I would like to suggest that you run dxdiag.exe thru 'start'>'run' (just type dxdiag.exe in the box) & also download "Fresh Diagnose" from www.freshdevices.com for a program that will give you LOTS of info about your system & the components installed. :grinthumb
Once you determine what you have: go to the mfgs. websites & check for patches, fixes & updates for the specific programs/components you have.

I recently build a new computer using a KT6V MS-7021 ATX Mainboard. When I attempt to boot it up, it errors out. The board has an optional Diagnostic LED on the back. The LED lights up with 4 red lights which it says:

The D-LED will hang if the processor isdamaged or not installed properly.
I'm using a brand new Processor, in fact I even tried a second new processor that still caused the same problem. I'm thinking its something else causing the computer to hang. And other ideas are suggestings to what might be the cause would be apreicated.

Lately I've been messing around trying to have two routers run in series. I have a Wireless-G Linksys and a Wired Network Anywhere Linksys router. Can anyone help me out. Please explain as simple as you can.
By default Linksys routers are (IP) 192.168.1.1 (within the setup page of your Router)
But you can't have two same IP addresses, so therefore you must change one of the Linksys routers to 192.168.1.2 (lets say)
Both routers are also probably set up as DHCP, but to make this work only the Router connected to the Internet line should have DHCP enabled
Therefore the Router connected to the computer should have DHCP disabled
Once the two IP are confirmed different
And once DHCP is enabled Only at the Internet end
Then it's just a matter of connecting the ethernet cables up, and testing online.

I recently installed Catalyst 7.10 software for my awful god awful graphics card which i wish to burn.) I installed for the purpose that it was taking 256mb from my system memory and was causing me to really lag up in Guild Wars- So i went on to the Integrated Graphics-UMA Frame Buffer section and from a drop down list where it was set to 256mb i tried it with 32, 64 and 128mb settings and clicked apply but everytime they reset to 256mb. This was quite frustrating as you can image. Any suggestions would be appreciated cheers and btw does changing the screen resolution mean that i wont lag as less on gw since im on 1024x768 i think and i should be on 800x600 and what about the refresh rate? thanks
Many Thanks for your time.
Best for you to get on the internet and do some research of your equipment. It's fun to look up all of your components. At the same time these questions will all be answered. When you go to New Egg and Tiger Direct, you can read their specifications page: there's a lot of info there. I am going to look up your video card for the hack of it after this post. It sounds like it's an old one. Good luck in your Google'ing.
Does anyone know why;
My old mum got a Asus FM3 laptop with Vista. It has been a nightmare, locking, restoring etc. so as my dad can help (he has Xp on his) I wiped and installed XP Pro sp2 and downloaded all drivers needed from asus.
Problem is everytime I restart the logo etc comes up bright then as all is done the screen goes off (you can just see it).
To make it come back you need to press Blue FN and F7 LCD on then is all fine till restart.
Is there a way to make it just load as normal as she will not see this as an improvement.
Sorry but did not feel the need to make a new post.
The other problem is that audio does not work. I cannot find a driver, is this the end do I go back to vista!
Surely a vista laptop can do xp pro!
Rumor has it that XP cannot print to Laserjet 4 by HP. Is this true?
looks like they kinda work.

Right was just looking up some graphics cards for a customer and im wonering how is the 9 series thats supposed to run all games on high settings a lot cheaper than the 8800GTS/GTX/Ultra.?
Yeah, it is cheaper but it is not better than the 8800 GT/GTS//GTX/Ultra. Price and perfomance wise, it is a great buy but if you're a serious gamer, why not buy an nVidia 8800 GT. I think that it is more powerful and offers more value for money. The ATi Radeon HD 3870 is also worth checking out.
who has this computer, i want you to create a recovery disk for me and send me the files on it plz, very urgent.

Hello I got my Len ovo c series all in one computer back in may went to turn it on, no screen CD ROM works good ,fan was running nothing horrible just black screen keyboard had no light mouse had a light. Any troubleshoot suggestions? I think I should still be under manufacturers warranty.
Try unplugging the machine, and holding the power button for 30 seconds to clear the CMOS. Then, plug it back in and see if it'll work. If not, try to continously press F11 and F12 during boot up. If that doesn't work, you may need to contact Lenovo support because it seems like the display may be defective since fans and CD ROM is running. http://support.lenovo.com for support chat and phone.

I really hate to ask this, but what is the difference between these cards?
I'm looking for a replacement to a 9100 (8500LE I beleive) and want to stay under $150 (or so). I don't need the fastest of the 9600 series, just the best bang for the buck.
I see that there is a 9600SE, 9600, 9600Pro and a 9600XT (I think that is the price order) starting from around $70 up to about $200 (big price spread for the same number.
128MB for memory is ok and it has to have a DVI out along with a VGA out.
Without spending a day or two looking through all the tests any input or would a slightly older 9500 or 9700 be within what I'm looking for?
When I got my 9100 I was considering a 9500, but price stopped that choice. I don't want to sopund cheap, but I have a hard time justfying much over $150 for a video card!
Stay away from the 9600SE. It is a severly crippled card. The memory bus has like half the bandwidth of any of the other cards you listed which is very important. Any of the other cards are good but I think the XT is supposed to be the best performance wise.

hi everyone i have this all in one printer hp c4200 series ok
what happen is that the 75 tri color cartridge have damage and it appear a msg
cartridge is missing or not detected and what i want to know is theres a way to remove the msg from the printer?? so i can use the black 74 cartridge
the msg does't let me press any button from the printer
Which model number in this list is your all-in-one printer?
The printer will not work with only the black 74 cartridge installed. The tri-color 75 cartridge has to be there also.
A cartridge doesn't get damaged while it's inside a printer. It can only get damaged by improperly handling it while unpackaging it and installing it.
If the tri-color 75 cartridge is damaged, then you need to replace it.

My name is Todd and I work at Dell's corporate headquarters. My team works with customers via blogs and forums. I saw your post and wanted to see if I could help.
Have you tried any other USB devices in that port to see if it happens with any other devices and isn't specific to the HP printer?
You may also want to go into your system setup (F2 during startup) and check the boot settings for the system. That system may be incorrectly trying to boot from a USB device and until it isn't able to it "hangs".
Let me know if other devices have the same problem or if you've been able to resolve the problem.

Hello KCBluesman and Welcome to this Bleeping website!
Just as a test, boot into Safe Mode and run the computer for a couple of hours. Let me know if your crashes stop, or do they continue. If you don't know how to access Safe Mode, your user's manual will tell you. If you don't have one, SM is usually accessed by tapping one of the F-Keys (try F8 or F11 first) on boot. If you can run in SM without crashes, reboot and try Safe Mode with Networking (that will enable internet connection). Let me know the results of each.
so my 7800 gt is dying on me and i think it's time for a new vid card. I was thinking about a 9600 gt i believe is the name and my friend told me i should not get that. he said i should proly try to ge an 8800 gts or the 9800 gtx. i'm not sure which one would be the better way to go. are they both similar in performance or do you guys think i shoudl bite the bullet and get the 9800.
From the reviews I have seen lately(PC magazine),the 9800 is the
best performing card ever made.

Hi all, I don't know if it is even possible anymore, but back in the day of the T40, the expresscard slot (or PC card slot? I don't know what the difference is, if any) could hold many things, including a GPU. (I even remember discussion of this back when the T510 was new.) What can the modern Expresscard slot hold? Can it still effectively mount a GPU? A card reader isn't necessary with the SD slot underneath it. What do you guys use it for on you laptops (preferably P series, but any would do.) Thanks.

4. message will pop up saying 1 or more wireless networks detected and the same thing happens in 2
Help would be greatly appreciated
We just had another thunderstorm here. I couldn't turn on the PC when I got home 'cuz of
it. My pc, like me, is allergic to voltage spikes. I develop severe allergic reactions to hi voltage/amperage.
I have a half a dozen of the $5 surge suppressors layin' around here. I've seen some that go for $205, with protection guarantee, and am wonderin' if the $5 SS'ers, plugged in, IN SERIES, will give the same degree of protection???
Right, I had been debating with myself whether or not I'm going to get one of these monsters, when I discovered that I'll need to upgrade my power supply. Having asked around a bit, I was told I'd be wanting in upwards of 650W, which sounds like an awful lot. I don't want to have matched the cost of my new graphics card in electricity bills within the year, afterall.
But imagine my suprise when I read in a review that the GTS version (which I was considering) only requires 400W, while the GTX requires 450. Can anyone sort this out for me once and for all? What are the actual power requirements?
It depends a lot on the amps on the 12V rail.
Appearing at http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/977/2
As far as power requirements go, the GeForce 8800GTS will require a minimum 400 watt power supply (with 12V current rating of 26A). The GeForce 8800GTX will require a minimum 450 watt power supply (with 12V current rating of 30A) and you can double those numbers when you start talking about SLI.Click to expand...
Personally, I'd use at least a 500 or 550 watt power supply for the 8800GTS and GTX, respectively; but you may be able to get away with what the article says. It also depends on hard drives, etc. With graphics monsters like that, too, I'd use only power supplies from a select few vendors, such as Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, SeaSonic, Antec, Enermax, or FSP. That's about all I can think of for now.

Hi all just joined and need help. Just bought an ASUS A8V Ai series VIA K8T800pro+ VT8237 motherboard to put my existing ram, agp graphics card and Athlon 64 X2 4400+ processor in. The motherboard doesnt recognise the CPU so I need to update the bios but for the life of me cannot do it.
On Motherboard it says its A8V Rev 2.00, on the box it says A8V-EAYZ and at startup it says A8V ACPI, Rev 1001, at another screen it says RV570 BIOS 702m/581e and again VIA VT8237 South Controller Rev A2.
I know I need to rename the update bios file and put onto floppy but have tried every combination above and at startup I hit Alt and F2 and it reads the floppy but the system does not recognise it, just says bios not found on floppy.
Desperate for help on this please.
I think your prob is your M/b is socket 939 and you CPU is an AM2. Ifso they're not compatible.( excuse me if I am wrong).
With regard to the Flashing I came up with the same prob on my Asus, from memory during the process the name changes, I then changed it to the original. Sorry if that sounds a bit hairy but its been a while since I had this happen.
So where do I begin It all started a few days ago when I booted up my problems. A series of computer like any other day and about minutes later I suddenly get a message within my tool bar A series of problems. area that says something along the lines of quot system quot quot quot quot quot exe is corrupt quot It said to run the quot dskchk quot application I sent in the error report to Microsoft where it then sent me a link to the the help page It said to open A series of problems. up the command prompt and enter I believe quot dskchk quot then press enter After that it said to enter another series of commands which I can t quite remember unfortunatley After that my computer restarted in order to diagnose the problem I believe After all that happened my computer restarted but then suddenly gave me the quot disk boot error please insert system disk quot problem Like an idiot I sorta jumped the gun and I think I installed another copy of A series of problems. Windows XP on the hard drive So now when I boot up my computer there are two versions of Windows XP to choose from The first one works and is a bare bones version with none of my precious files on it The second one is what I believe has all my files and everything that I would like to get back However it will not let me into that copy of Windows XP What the hell did I do and is there any way to save my files nbsp

I've currently got a second-hand 7950GT which had a voltage inductor break off, meaning I'm going to have to restructure the fans [they will no longer work on the card itself]. This came at a time where I've been overclocking, trying to decrease temperatures, etc.
I'm wondering if, for performance in DX9 games, two 256MB LeadTek 7950GTs in SLi would beat a single 8800GT / 8800GTS / 8800GTX?
I don't have Vista and I don't play DX10 games...yet. For the time being, would paying for a 7950GT at half the price of an 8800GTX and running the two cards in SLi give me a performance advantage?
I could then wait until prices fall on a 8800GTX.
