Preferred Solution: Pavillion notebook programs not opening

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.)

Hi I want to instal  one SSD disk on my computer. Do anyone now if it is  Sata 3 port on this computer ? If it isn`t can I install  Sata 3 port or do I have to chang motheboard ! Regards KOB32

A:HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC-e061so

Hi: Run this free hardware analyzer that I have zipped up and attached below. Run the file, close the summary window and on the left side of the window, click to expand the Drives section. Then click to expand the sata/atapi drives section. Click on your hard drive name listed there.  The first line will be the Drive Controller spec. It will report the hard drive type running at a certain speed. For example Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 6 Gb/s. If your notebook only has a SATA II port, it might report Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s, or Serial ATA 3 Gb/s  @  3 Gb/s.

I am considering buying this laptop at "Office Depot" today. In your expert opinion, guys, is this a good laptop for basic needs? I just need it for a small business situation.

Hello,I was recently given a pavillion dv9821ea laptop which was in bad shape after being infected with a virus. I eventually had to replace the hard drive and at the same time I upgraded the operating system to windows 7 PRO 64bit. I was unable to save nothing from the origonal hard drive, no drivers, HP software etc and since I installed Windows 7, the laptop seems to have several problems including not downloading Windows updates. I connect it to the HP assistant, but this recognises the laptop and only gives me the choice of Windows Vista as the operating system for which to support drivers etc. I wonder if you could help me by letting me know if there is anywhere I can download Windows 7 pro 64bit drivers for this laptop? my wife and I are both disabled and it would make a great difference to me if I could have full use of this laptop. Regards. Gerald

A:Drivers for Pavillion dv9821ea entertainment notebook

Hi, Gerald: HP did not support that model for W7, and you should be able to use the Vista drivers from the dv9821ea support page except the BIOS and firmware files. Additionally, you can read this helpful dv9000 W7 upgrade guide for some tips on getting W7 to work just fine on that model. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Windows-7-Upgrade-Guide-for-dv60...

A:Frozen touchpad and keyboard on HP Pavillion dv6 3225dx Notebook

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7


   Information
On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.
● Problems with volume control lighting and HP Quick Launch buttons have been dealt with here where you can also get further support.

A:HP Pavillion notebook reboots continously except in Safe Mode

Sounds like it might be time for a reinstall to refresh the OS and overcome any lingering infection. Follow these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 particularly when it comes to drivers and Updates.

Otherwise work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 including the hardware tests.

Hello katrapezo.  I understand you're having some trouble recording audio. Have you tried recording in another application such as Sound Recorder?  I'd also like you to remove your audio drivers and allow Windows to reinstall them.  Here are the steps.Click Start, type "Device Manager," and press Enter.Expand the "Sound, video, and game controllers" section.Right click on your sound card and select "Uninstall."Reboot your computer.Verify whether the problem persists.Also, what is your notebook's product number?  This document can show you where it is located.Have a wonderful day.

Hi

Several weeks ago I bought the new HP Pavillion dv9574ea notebook and the HEADPHONE SOCKETS do not work - there are two. Only the speakers work. Even when I put a working set of headphones which are the right size, I cannot hear anything through the hearphones. The normal loud speakers however keep working, although they should switch off when the headphones are plugged in.

Please see the screenshot of the drivers active (in system 32 folder) and other details about the headphone socket.

Thank you for any help.

I've just set up my new HP Pavillion X2 and tried to open Microsoft word and excel. However it has just given me a screen which says 'ASUS transformer Book'.  I had one of these but had to send it back as it didn't work - is mobile office somehow linked to that and how do I unlink it? I hope no-one says speak to ASUS as their customer service was appalling hence switching to HP.  Thanks!

I recently had to open the case and do some disassembly to upgrade my memory. After re-assembling the computer, my WiFi adapter is no longer recognized. When I go to Device Manager - Network Adapters I no longer even see the device in the list. I wonder if I missed something on the re-assembly? Everything else appears to work fine (except the memory upgrade didn't take, see this discussion). Can anyone suggest troubleshooting steps or specific things to check when I open up the computer? Thanks

Hi. a while ago I used msconfig to remove some programs that automatically on startup but now I have noticed that close to all of my services and startup programs have stopped loading on startup even though they are all checked in the msconfig window. I have tried rebooting in diagnostic startup but I haven't been able to fix it. I used the admin tools to set some services to run automatically but it doesn't help Steam, Norton, and my other programs to run and many services revert to manual startup. I also cannot run any programs, the only ones that seem to work are norton scan and firefox. Wizards and the system restore tool won't open, I don't know what to do

Try and use Start up CPL to add the files back to start up

To use start-up CPL

Click Start

>>Double click on 'Start up'

When that is open go through the tabs and add the programs you want to load on start up

I need to replace the clock battery on my Presario 720US notebook. I removed all the screws on the bottom (10) but can't get the case open. Are there hidden screws under the keyboard or somewhere else, and if so how do I remove the keyboard?

I did search the library and didn't find an answer.

take a very small flat head screw driver to loosen the clips. Be gentle though so you don't chip the plastic.

Hi there I did a clean boot disabling startup - opening new slow windows... focus, changing Notebook items a while ago and after reverting back to normal boot my computer became pretty slow in doing certain things Notebook slow - changing focus, opening new windows... I don't know if this has anything to do with my clean boot or if it was just coincidence that it happened then Anyway booting seems to be as fast as usual but if I change the focus from one window or program to another it takes a while Also when i open a new window program it takes a long time When opening a folder Notebook slow - changing focus, opening new windows... with many icons in it it takes pretty long to load all the images Also loading in games takes longer than it used to once everything is loaded it runs OK But anytime it has to load something new like a graphical effect the program freezes for a few seconds The rest of the computer does not freeze then I'm running Windows Home Premium bit on an Asus K JE notebook I defragmented my hard drives did some cleanup with ccleaner MS security essentials says no viruses or anything There don't seem to be any programs using a lot of CPU or memory according to the task manager Any idea what can cause these problems If you need further information let me know Cheers Bengt

Anyway, booting seems to be as fast as usual, but if I change the focus from one window or program to another it takes a while. Also when i open a new window/program it takes a long time. When opening a folder with many icons in it, it takes pretty long to load all the images. Also loading in games takes longer than it used to, once everything is loaded it runs OK. But anytime it has to load something new, like a graphical effect the program freezes for a few seconds. The rest of the computer does not freeze then.
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on an Asus K52JE notebook. I defragmented my hard drives, did some cleanup with ccleaner, MS security essentials says no viruses or anything. There don't seem to be any programs using a lot of CPU or memory according to the task manager.
Any idea what can cause these problems?
If you need further information let me know.
Cheers
Bengt


2 Gigs of memory on 64bit win 7 is thin at best. Have you changed, eliminated, or moved the pagefile?

Hi and thanks for reading this, heres my issue:

When I try to play a game or use some proggies, my notebook will work fine for about 5 minutes then it just powers down completely. It works great as long as I just surf the web or type, simple stuff. But when I try to play a game or run certain programs it shuts down.

Here are my cpu's specs:

System:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 1
Computer:
Intel(R)
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.06GHz with Hyperthreading Technology
1.00 GB of RAM
Display Adapter - NVIDIA GeForce4 488 Go

Someone told me it might be a cooling issue but I do have an extra fan underneath it and, like I said, it works normal until I try to play a game.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello everyone im pretty sure my computer is extremely infected with viruses. I was not able to open any .exe program. Whenever i try all that happens is the open with dialog box opens. I tried restarting the computer and when i tried opening programs after this spybot scans the file says there is nothing wrong and then closes, but the program once again does not open. Any help is appreciated at this point lol.

EDIT

Doing the first steps part first now that i just read it :)

Ok so ive been going through the first steps... I was able to run the DDS tool and get the DDS.txt and Attach.txt files saved on my desktop. I then attempted to run the GMER Rootkit Scanner but just like all my other dektop icons it will not allow me to run it... I click the icon and spybot says its scanning it, then that closes and nothing happens.

Hello Rekenaar, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Downloading and merging the listed LNK (lnk) and EXE options in the tutorial below may be able to fix this for you. It will restore the default associations for these file extensions.

So I decided to install opera and the exact same thing happened (I can only get win8 internet explorer to work). Many of my programs are now not working. Steam gets stuck on updating and is not responding. Skype starts to load up then crashes. And blender only opened on the third try. I have 16gb ram and a amd quad core prossesor and radion hd graphics card also 64 bit so I don't know. It is really driving me insane.

You may very well be infected.
First restart the computer and press F8 continuously. At the Advanced Boot menu, select Safe Mode with Networking. Can you open Chrome now?

I'm going to move you to the "Security" forum since this is definitely a "security" issue.

For now, print or save these instructions so you can view them in Safe Mode. Then restart in Safe Mode by pressing the f8 key promptly on startup and choosing from the startup menu.

Once in Safe Mode run HijackThis and check and "fix" the following entries:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Taskbar Service] taskbar.svc
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Backup Service] backup.svc

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Update Machine] komwbyb.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Update Machine] komwbyb.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Windows Media Player Update] peofupy.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Update Machine] komwbyb.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows Media Player Update] peofupy.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunServices: [Windows Media Player Update] peofupy.exe

>> It's possible Nav has found and deleted most or all of these files. But you will need to confirm. Before doing a file search for each of "exes" above, go to Folder Options > View and check "show hidden files". Also temporarily remove the check for "hide protected system files".

Search for and delete all instances of the above "exes".

After completing this, reboot and do a full online scan at House Call or Panda. After they clean up, post a new HijackThis Scanlog.

A:Programs Not Opening

Hello 2SwiFt29,

I'm afraid we're a bit limited here if you can't open programs or Internet Explorer.

The first item that needs to be addressed is the fact that you have 2 Anti Virus programs installed. While it may seem to be added protection for you, more than 1 Anti Virus can cause conflicts and confusion between the AV programs as well as system instability. Please choose and run only 1 and uninstall the other via the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

My computer (Toshiba Satellite M45-S355) has started opening up programs without me! All of a sudden, while working in one program, another just pops up as if I'd clicked it - but I didn't. I've run Norton's AV; SpySweepter; XOftSpySe; and Ad-Aware and it's still happening. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hello. With no warning at all, I am unable to open any of the programmes on my user account. When I click on the shortcut or try to open a program directly,it just asks me which program I would like to open it with and reccomends Internet Exlporer. It then asks if I want to download or run. Internet explorer then stops running. There weren't any obvious problems beforehand. My wifes user account on the same computer is fine. This happens to everything, including Word, Google Earth, Spybot, Peggle Delux, the lot. I have an Aser 5715z with Windows Vista.
Can anyone possibly help ? Thanks.

Another problem I have on my desktop is my firewall wont enable, I click "enable now" but ti says i have to go to the windows firewall in the control panel but it wont let me activate it there either.

Hijack this program also does not open. The time glass next to arrow pops up really quick and then it stops.

I thinking that most of my problems are malware problems because I had similar problems in the past with my laptop and then I got rid of all the malware and it runs great. But I am having trouble getting my desktop back up to 100 percent.

As the title suggests, I'm having quite the problem with my computer. Specifically, under my default user in Windows 7, I can't access any of my programs. I get an error that the program can't be found, and Windows asks what program I'd like to use to open... my programs. I can't screen cap because I can't get anything to open, even directly from the program files.

I tried creating another user, and everything seems to work fine under that. Ran an antivirus sweep from that user, which cleared out a couple of minor security threats, but my primary user still can't access anything.

An example is when I click the shortcut to Office Work, it says:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\WINWORD.EXE
Application not found

with only a box to click ok.

If anyone can offer any help on this, it would be much appreciated.

Right click on the program, Icon on Desktop or in Quick Launch>
Properties>Run: Maximized/Apply/Ok

For a second IE Window>

This works for me.
Open Internet Explorer
Shift + click a link to force it to open in a separate window
Alt + Tab to return to the first window
Close it, leaving only the small window open
Drag the window edges/corners to adjust the size
Close the resized window

Another way,
Open one IE browser window. Click on a link to open a second.
With the second, drag the corners to the edges of the screen.
Do 'Not' hit the maximize icon. Close the first window, then the second
(the order of closing is important).
Make sure you do File, Close; do 'Not use the X button!

Another way,

This is probably a virus or spyware problem.

Get the program Hijack this and run it, then post the entire log here:

After that you probably want to run the program Spybot:

Im lost in this forest. What happened was my friend was downloading things via utorrent After he was asked to select a program to open the .torrent file with he picked the program and now everything except a handful of shortcuts and programs will open as itself. Everything else including many windows programs keep trying to open in utorrent. I can't even do a system restore at this point. Im not sure if its just best to get my hands on a external HD and move everything and format his pc. Trying to avoid that option if I can.

Was able to get a virus scan to run nothing detected on the pc beside one trojan.

Hi. . .

Hoping that maybe your short cuts are all that are currently lost, you may want to try to run the System Restore from the command line. Be sure to logon with an administrative account. Here is the command for execution:

c:\windows\system32\rstrui.exe


If this doesn't bring up the System Restore screen, try to boot-up in SAFEMODE.

Good Luck. . .

I can't open most programs in my task bar and programs in start/programs. When I click on their icon it flashes the box where you are asked to open file or save to computer. The icons for these programs have been replaced with a box with a "e" in the middle. If you right-click and go to properties on all the program icons it says is a LNK file, even though it isn't. My wife went in to the folder options and made some changes. She isn't very computer literate and has no idea what she did. That's all I can think of. I hope it's enough information.

A:ahh programs not opening!

Hi leafsfan85


Just to double-check that the system is indeed malware-free, try an online scanner, such as TrendMicro's HouseCall (http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/)

You can also check in your EventViewer Logs & search for errors that coincide with failed program startups. EventViewer is in the Administrative Tools in the Vista Control Panel.

If the problem started just recently, you have the option to use Vista's System Restore, choosing a restore point from before the trouble started. Navigate through your start menus: Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore.

Is it TuneUp Utilities 2007 that you had installed? Did your current trouble start after using it's Registry Cleaning functions?

Have you had to clear any malware infections recently?

Do you have a Recovery Disk set, and do you make regular backups of your data?

Many possibilities
