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.)

After re installation OS my computer don't see sound card (no sound device installed) in device manager all device are recognized and work fine. Please help me to install sound card.

A:No sound card HP Pavilion dv6700 (dv6810ew)

This can happen sometimes, first of all open device manager and right click your computer name and click refresh, this may show it, if it didnt you should go ahead with installing the driver and see if that finds it.

Have you rebooted it and checked again ?

Here is the link for the drivers, you will need to find more info from your laptop (normally found on the stick on the back) basicly select the right model from the list of about 10 i think, then find the sound card drivers, download and install.

Best of luck to you my friend =)

My wired desktop internet connection cuts out for a few seconds every 3 to 5 minutes.  Laptops are able to access the internet wirelessly via the router.  My conclusion is that the ethernet adaptor (card?) needs to be replaced.  I've done some searching but can't work out what I need to buy (what it's called), what specs (speed?), and where to put it (a card slot? replace something there?).  I'd prefer to keep a wired connection as it's much faster.  The product specs say it's currently:LAN: 10-Base-TTechnology: PCI Realtek RTL8105EData transfer speeds: up to 10/100 Mb/sTransmission standards:10-Base-T Ethernet The system info shows this: The SpeedTest shows: AT&T says downstream speed is up to 18 mbps Thanks for any help. K.

I've got a HP pavilion 17e073 ed and i want to replace the graphics card with a better one. The problem is that i can't find anywhere if i can replace the graphics card. I want to replace it for better gaming prestations. I've already bought a SSD and some more RAM.

A:Can you replace the graphics card from hp pavilion 17e073ed

Hi: There are no removable, replaceable, upgradable graphics 'cards' in your notebook. The graphics is all part of the motherboard and in order to upgrade the graphics, you would have to see if there is a motherboard listed in the maintenance and service guide for your notebook that has better graphics. Replacing the motherboard would be a costly and labor intensive project.

I tried most of the black screen suggestions and short cuts. all seem to work for me but just for a short time. the longest so far is about 20 minutes.
after that the screen goes black again.
In the control panel I set up my computer not to power down go to sleep,
no screen saver nothing. It was down so long I did not want it to start with
a black screen again. but now it still goes black after about 20 minutes.
what else can I do to keep my screen on without keep going black.


Seeing as this is an old laptop, it could be that the screen itself is going bad. They're not to hard to replace for a DIY and not to expensive. HP PAVILION DV6700 CTO LAPTOP LCD SCREEN 15.4" WXGA CCFL SINGLE (SUBSTITUTE REPLACEMENT LCD SCREEN ONLY. NOT A LAPTOP ): Computers & Accessories

I have an HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook that will not boot. It was left unplugged for several months because I don't use it very much. I am getting ready for a vacation and usually take it along but when I plugged it in to update the OS it started downloading and installing updates then shut down and now goes into a loop. Tries to boot, gets as far as loading the desktop then black screen and then starts reboot again.
It has the original bios version F.34. everything there looks good. Ran HD self test from bios then memory test. Everything checks out ok. Factory OS was Vista but is now running 7 Ultimate 64bit.
If I try to boot in safe mode with networking I get a BSOD. Safe mode will boot. Safe mode with command prompt will boot.
Any suggestions?

Hello, I am greatfully sorry if I have these questions in the right section. (1) I have a laptop that I don't use anymore, it is an HP Pavilion dv6700 with Windows Vista 32-bit, but what was the CPU, GPU, and RAM in one of these? Mine was without the webcam/mic. (2) This laptop won't power on anymore, it did have an overheating problem, fans were really loud, and when I connected the power cord up to it nothing happened. What is the reason to that? Could it be that the laptop is just junk? I really don't use it anymore, but I just wanted to know that if I came across this problem again, I will then know.  I use an HP 15 with Black Licorish Gloss Plastic on it now. Thanks in advance!    HPOJPro8710

Edit: You said "the only option showing is the HDD, in the BIOS I am seeing all boot options are showing and no matter what I select to boot off either a USB cd drive or internal cd rom, none of them works"
I am a little confused as you said the only option showing was HDD and in your next sentence it seems you are also able to select USB CD drive and Internal CD Rom from a list. Does Pressing enter when the HDD boot device is highlighted in BIOS give you a USB HDD option?

Ok well i got this laptop about 1 month ago and everything was going good until about 3 days ago. The laptop started to randomly freeze up while i was in firefox or even just moving folders to the trash can. I then thought to myself if i reformat it will fix the problem. Well now i have an even worse problem. After the reformat it has a screen where "HP programs/help center.etc" installs and it freeze right there. I can hear a bell sound in the background when it freeze.

I tried safemode and it work. If this is a driver problem can someone please give me the URL to a site that allows 100% free driver scan + download. FOR FREE!!... i have been looking to see if its the problem and all the ones i found say they are for sale and not free.

Recently I was having some trouble with Vista on my pavilion dv6700 notebook and had a friend of mine fix the motherboard and put Windows 7 on it (as XP is not compatible with the hardware). Now the only problem is that the audio drivers aren't installed, and I'm having a lot of difficulty finding the correct ones, if they are even out there yet. I've found a lot of questions here and on other sites regarding audio drivers for the dv6700, but only for Vista. Can anyone help?

I turned on my computer a couple of days ago and I found that my volume wasn't working. Instead, there was a red x next ot my speker on my taskbar, and when I moused over it it said, "No Audio Output Deivce is installed". I went over to device manager and checked under "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers" and my audio driver was completely missing! No yellow question mark next to it, nothing at all. So I go to the HP website to download the driver and I can't install it, instead I get this error message saying "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the device for this driver." I've emailed HP support about this and although they were trying to be helpful, I got nowhere with them. I even tried a full system restore, and the problem still persists. Help, I'm stumped!

A:Issues installing Windows XP on my hp pavilion dv6700 notebook

That's because XP does not have the SATA drivers for the Hard Drive .. so it doesn't see it.
If you know the Driver .. it can be slipsteamed into the XP install CD.
Even if you can do this, you'll probably have trouble finding the other drivers that are missing.

Have you though about getting the recovery DVDs from HP ??
You should have recovered from the recovery partition .. it was safe.

My desktop stopped connecting to the internet a few days ago following months of taking 20 minutes to connect (to Verizon FIOS). After discussing the problem with Verizon tech support, it appears that the problem is with my network card. Because our laptops connect just fine, I accept this conclusion. Here's my question - When I go thru control panel to my Intel Pro/100 VE Network Connection and run diagnostics, it passes EEPROM, Control Registers, Interrupt, PHY Loopback & MAC Loopback. It fails Link. Now LINK is the ONLY item on the troubleshooting information page that does NOT say "If the test fails, replace the adapter". What it does say is to make sure the cables are securely attached and to try a different port, which I already did while talking w/Verizon.
Should I replace the adapter? Thanks, Velveedah

I believe drivers? faulty BSOD 116 card or graphics faulty the initial crash was caused by overheating Based on the fact that I have gotten it to work for a short amount of time more on that later Booting up with the drivers for my graphics card enabled causes BSOD to appear but when it is disabled everything is fine I can boot into safe mode and I have already reinstalled windows My motherboard is Asus B M-e and my graphics card is Nvidia EV A GTX How I got it to work for a short amount of time I reinstalled windows and then installed my integrated Ethernet driver After that was out of the way I installed and used driver booster to install the rest of my drivers I then noticed there was a missing driver that the program could not install that was named Simple PCI Controller So I thought I should install that driver using my motherboard's driver installation disk It then worked up until I decided to change the settings in Nvidia Control panel I also do not know how faulty graphics cards behave so it might be my graphics card The game I was playing when this started was Life is Strange if that is needed

Two times in the last week my monitor (a KDS visual sensations CRT) has come on with the image looking like an hourglass (wide at the top and bottom, pinched in the center). This happened imediately upon boot up and both times rebooting has returned the monitor to normal, leaving the computer running does not bring the problem back. Which is more likely, that my monitor is beginning to fail or maybe my graphics card (a saphire, ATI radeon 7000) is failing? Is there some way (other than swaping my monitor out and trying another as this seems so far to be an intermitent problem and may not arise when a new monitor is conected) to check and see which it may be?

Is this possible, and if so what should I get? I also want to add bluetooth as I remember the website had an option to do so, but bc the Costco Set Config was cheaper, I went that route instead.  Is it possible to do this internally w/o an external part [like a usb dongle] PS.

Hi all,

I've been gifted a broken Samsung R700 and after some diagnostics believe the problem to be with the Nvidia Geforce 8400M which is apparently quite notorious when it comes to faults. What I would like to know is can I replace the chip? I can certainly get hold of one for around 30but so far I can only find instructions to replace them in Dell machines and am not quite experienced enough to know whether this would apply with the Samsung! (There are loads of forums that tell you how to claim your money back on this particular model, but as this was being chucked out I can't go down that route.) Obviously if it would need a new motherboard then it's not really worth my while.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop and the audio input in front is can sometimes get it to work but often it's impossible. How difficult is it to replace it? I also heard from someone that you might be able to do the sound through that correct? What is my best option here?

Hello anyone who can help me.

This week i started getting these and they are sporadic, sometimes happening frequently almost as soon as windows appears. I have used driver sweeper to clean all drivers and this helped for a while. I have now tried to use combofix but this causes the BSOD every time without fail. I have scanned with AVG and Microsoft Essentials and they come up clean, have scanned from both in safe mode and they identified and cleaned a few things but didnt stop the problem. Relevant files are attached, if anyone has some advice it would be much appreciated.

Few questions here if I may.  Old computer died and on tight budget.  Considering the one I have listed below due to features and cost.   1.  I called HP and they state GE Force 730 will work on it as will Radeon RS 730.  Any preference on those 2? 2.  Can we add an ethernet card?  I ask because on last computer that actually went out on the motherboard so we had to add one. 3.  Overall do think the 489.99 is a good price for this? 4.  We do play games some online games on the computer as well as use it for routine home use.  Does this have enough power to do that? TY in advance for all your help.  My family and I appreciate it.

I've got used HP Pavilion 6475Z. The hard drive was formatted. So there was no operation system. Of course a master CD didn't come with the computer. So I installed Windows 98 SE. But the windows got no driver for the network card. I looked in the device manager to see what kind of network card was installed. But no lack. Is anyone know how to find out what kind of network card is installed?

A:Network card in HP Pavilion

There's a few thing you can do to determine who made the card - one is open the computer up and look at the network card for a manufacture and model number.

The next thing is get Everest Home Edition:
And look under Devices - Physical Devices for it. It might be listed as Network, LAN or Ethernet.

But recently I have been browsing the internet and in the like 20 minutes after browsing the web the switch for the wireless connection goes orange (usually happens when you turn the switch off) but the switch has not been turned to the off position at that time and the connection where it says currently connected to it say limited connectivity. Does anyone have any ideas what this problem could be.

A side note* is that recently my subscription to Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper has expired and not active but i don't know why it would affect my wireless connection.

HP Pavilion 4440 - 333MHz system. My computer started making a grinding noise, and when I took off the cover, I traced it to the CPU fan, which runs some, but not 100%, and is getting louder.

I recently added some RAM by removing the power supply and worming my way into the slots, but the fan replacement will be impossible from this angle.

How do I get to the motherboard on this beast? The "side" of the "box" looks almost impossible to open. Can someone tell me if there is a trick to getting into this thing?

Also, is there anything I need to be aware of when replacing the fan?

That is your starting point to open the case - usually but not always a side panel is removable, you want the side panel that is furthest from the I/O plate where the mouse, keyboard, Ethernet etc connects

Unless you know how to proceed examine that aspect first, just visually and when you reply with how dusty it is, I will offer you further guidance

My sister just purchased a new HP Pavillion a6220n with Vista installed. She can no longer run some of her specialized design software for her craft business as it requires XP. She does not like the Vista in any case. She bought the HP at Staples Office Depot. Can you normally take the PC back in and have them install XP? If not, what is the process for unistalling Vista and loading XP? Is this recommended?

A:Replace Hard Drive HP Pavilion 15-n096sa

It's not a back panel. You come in from the top down removing the top cover.  Your Service Manual Start on p. 63. You can use any 2.5 inch wide SATA drive whether mechanical or solid state as long as it is 7 mm or 9.5 mm thick. Almost all are, What country do you live in? We can certainly help you locate the drive, but then there are issues surrounding software reinstallation.  If you are more "visual", we can also help you find a video showing hard drive replacement. This is not a super easy procedure so you need to honestly assess your tech skills and just sayin' maybe an anger management assessment, too. I am sure the laptop did not deserve what it got or maybe it did.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi there

A friend appears to have a problem with certain fonts in MS Office where certain letters appear to be out of focus (all other applications appear to be ok).

He has a XFX Geforce 6500 graphics card in his machine (which I've uninstalled, removed, re-seated & re-installed) & we were wondering if anyone has encountered this type of problem in the past?

My gut feeling is that the card isn't faulty but I'm not sure - anyone able to give me a steer?

Cheers for any advice

Hi I was wondering if anybody has any ideas on this - I bought a second hand ati radeon 9800 pro 128mb vga card. Various artifacts appear onscreen from the moment the system posts, which makes it pretty much unusable. ONE TIME I booted up and it was completely without problems with perfect display. My question is, could this problem be caused by an inadequate power supply - It's only 235watts, or have I definitely got a fried card (my old card sitll works fine). I have tried unplugging all drives except the hard drive to see if it reduced drain on the psu, but same problems sitll occur. The rest of my system is old and therefore I presumed wouldn't need too much power, so I thought the psu might be enough. if it is the card, is there anything that can be fiddled about with to repair graphics cards? thanks

A:Faulty vga card or psu too weak?

Your PS is under powered. That could be the problem. But since it did seem to work fine once make sure it is firmly seated in it's slot. Of course no way to know about second hand products. Was it definitely working before?

Hi, i have started to have display issues with my pc, the display screen changes itself from full screen to restore down screen, it originally only happened when i logged onto the internet but now it has started doing it when i open folders on my pc & i was wondering if i needed to get a new graphics card. Please help as it is getting very frustrating.

A:Is my graphics card faulty


I do not believe your graphics card is in need of a change. That is just an operating system thing. When a window or folder screen is opened- It usually opens the same way it was closed. The graphics card is not an issue- unless your seeing things that are not supposed to be there like black lines or such.

Got this corruption in my display after about 2-3 hours of MW2 last night. This is the worst it's been so far, started as missing or incorrectly colored textures, started getting video lag during that session last night and then what you see in the picture.

This seems to have started when I built my new system but I think that may be because the old one wasn't PCIe 2.0 so it never really stressed the card...

A:Does this look like a faulty video card?

Looks like it is overheating might want to check the fan on the card and cooling on your system

well i baught an nvidia 6800

thaught everything was fine, but 3dmark03 just kept showing artifacts and i got re-boots
posted this here, and came to conclusion that it is probably power supply

ive just downloaded planet side, (free fps game type thingy)

and first time i loaded it i could see through walls, it had no grass etc
** now i just get reboots when i load it up

is this probably a faulty graphics card then ? :S
i have over clocked it, but i set it back ages ago, will this effect my return policy etc? :O

ive noticed artifacts in warcraft 3 aswell, just small triangels some times, when im closing the game.

so are these signs of faulty card ? :O should i return, i baught it from ebuyer 2 weeks ago.

I have a geforce 6100 that seems to be faulty. I got a new motherboard about 6 months ago and ever since it hasn't worked the same. When i play videos, there is something funny about them. It plays sometimes but then i go to minimize it and re open it and its only in one small corner of the screen. I have all the codecs plus driver updates. The only way it works well is wehn i turn the acceleration down to none. ALthough the screen is very blurry when it is full screen. I have also brought it to the shop and they "couldnt find anything".

The only thing i can think is faulty card and they do not wanna play for a new one. It is integrated int he motherboard.
ANy other options, ideas?

i have a tp-link 5-port switch which has worked without a hitch for about 2 years. now there are issues - sometimes i cannot get a network connection. if i power the switch down then up again, a good connection is restored.

the set up is like this:
dsl router direct to 2 computers and the switch, then two other computers and a printer through the switch.
i have recently done a major hardware upgrade to the two machines connected to the switch, but they are both running xp as before.

can these switches develop faults?
is it on OS problem?
it happens even with only one of the computers on the switch running

A:Network switch faulty?

yes, a switch can fail just like any other active component. I lost one port on mine but had a vacant slot so I just moved the cable to the vacant position.

fyi: the DSL Router ---> Switch is just fine, but be aware that the DHCP service of the Router is providing all the TCP/IP configuration data, even to the systems attached to the switch.

Your test for correct configuration is to run IPCONFIG /ALL on a working system and
then compare that to the results on a failing system.
Usually, it is obvious on the failing systems that the configuration is not correct.
It is possible however, that the failing system is configured correctly but still fails.

I am having an issue with my Internet Network Adapter. When i boot the computer it errors and says 'Code 10, driver could not start'. If i go into the device manager and disable and re-enable the device, it works perfectly. Also i recently had to reinstal windows 7 to fix faults and it previously worked without problems. The name of the new network driver is 'Intel(R) 82578DC Gigabit Network Connection. I am sure that it is up to date and that i have the 64bit version and not the 32bit version. It's a very frustrating mystery to me why it doesn't work. Thank you for any and all help =]

A:Faulty Laptop Video Card

The low level functions of the video card use a vga vesa driver
that does not activate the hardware accelleration.
The problems you ar e having when the driver loads indicates
bad hardware and not a driver problem.
Being as it is a 6800 go card,it is probably replacable.
It would need to be replaced with the exact same type of card,
but not necessarily the same model.
If you want to try a newer driver,you would need to uninstall the old
one from start/control panel/add remove programs.

I have tried every single solution to fix my AMD R7 M260 video card, but it seems that it does not work. I have tried to install win 8.1 , because I saw a lot of complains about this video card drivers on Win 10, but this did not help. I installed different drivers from different sources, but nothing helps.

Now I have left with only one option. My video card is faulty.

Maybe you have some advice how I could prove that this video card is faulty or it does has bad drivers?

I think my newly bought NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS graphics card is faulty. Is there any signs or ways to test whether it is or not.

The reason I think it's faulty is because I had a pretty messed up PC about two weeks after installing it. I eventually had to reinstall the old card (NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200) and do a full system recovery (reverting back to the factory setup). Without the 7600 everything seems to be working as it should.

Any ideas?

Oh specialized support!

I believe it's your video card itself
I have a 512Meg that even has issues sometimes

I think you're best to uninstall it fully
Turn off
Detach the card gain
If you have onboard video, start with that
Turn on
Then use Driver Sweeper to remove any leftovers
Actually even run CCleaner
Turn off
Install your (clean) Addon video card
Re-install the latest drivers again

Is there any way of checking the health of my graphics card. I have a Radeon 4870 that is less than a year old. About 2 weeks ago it was working fine for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (COD:MW2), however having not played since then I tried it again today and game play is extremely stuttery, even offline.

My testing has been off-line, I have even taken the resolution down to 800 x 600 and put the GFX on lowest settings, I still get lag. Online is even worse.

The only PC changes I can think of making is changing the system virtual memory (I was testing video editing settings) however I have since changed this back to System managed and this still hasn't fixed the problem .

I have only COD:MW2 to test the GFX card witha t the moment since no other games are installed.
