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.)

Looks like the only way you can get free MBAM is to install a 14 day trial of the Premium version. Should I disable Win 10 Defender during this period or disable MBAM or can they run together? I ask because my SIL's new PC seems to be restarting for no apparent reason. I have disabled MBAM (I think) but maybe I missed a setting that is causing an issue. Thanks.

Hi, I was wondering, I have an hdmi port on my laptop, so i was wondering how i could actually use my laptop to play my ps3 in high def. Also, would there an application that would allow me to record whats on screen instead of buying an expensive HD capture card?

A:Solved: HDMI port on my laptop

The typical HDMI port on a desktop or laptop PC is output only. You would need to get capture hardware to record the game console's video output.

After installing the firmware updated marked Softpaq number: SP75152, Version F.35Ap1 now four of our laptops (13" ENVY and 14" ENVY) have a non-functioning HDMI port. External screens report 'no signal'.  We've spent a lot of time with HP support (via Hong Kong we ended up in India). Remote Control sessions. All a waste of time. The BIOS update is faulty, no system restore can fix this. Even still today (13 JUN 2016) one of our laptops automatically installed this BIOS update with the HP Support Assistant, and killed the HDMI port. A. Is there a way to acquire and install the previous BIOS? B. When can we expect a new BIOS update? C. How the hell did this BIOS update get past testing??? --> 4 out of 4 updated laptops have a broken HDMI port. We have 7 other laptops left that are fortunately not updated.  

A:BIOS Update F.35Ap1 kills HDMI port on ENVY laptop

I too did the BIOS upgrade to my ENVY 12t-d0000 which caused my HDMI to stop working.  After several hours with HP chat support and some sort of bios update, I'm still w/out a working HDMI.  I have been expecting an ecalation case manager to contact me, but it's been 40 hours so far (was promised to be contacted w/in 48 hours).  At this point, even though I've been a loyal HP customer for years, I'm VERY FRUSTRATED. Any suggestions on what I can try next?

Part2 = ntfs-win7 home premium (primary)
Part3 = ext3-Extended (logical)
Part4 = ext3-LM rafaela (extended)

This setup worked good.

Part2 win7 got buggered, and reinstalled (nvidia chip-set melt down during win7 boot). The MB was replaced.

I can no longer get to win10 boot Part1. Booting to Part1 or Part2 results to booting the newly installed win7. Rafaela boot did not change: still working.

How can I reclaim my win10 boot? I can't upgrade for free anymore so I'm hoping there's a way to work with what's there.

On a UEFI PC, do you know if it is possible to run dual boot with first OS being the PC's original activated Windows 10 and second OS being Windows 10 in trial mode ?

The issue is that the PC has a UEFI Bios which I am told automatically assigns a product key should windows 10 is installed on the machine. How do I make sure that this second Windows 10 trial does not pick up the product key from the UEFI bios and remains in trial mode, while the first Win 10 OS remains activated and functional ?

A:Possible to run dual OS UEFI with Win10 activated + Win 10 trial ?

Not exactly sure why you would want to run a Windows 10 in notification mode (that's what non-activated "trial" is called). There are two ways to do what you want, though. Install a different version as the "trial" Windows 10 - if you have home installed and activated on your computer, then install the second copy and upgrade it to Pro using the Windows 10 Pro generic product key. If you already have Pro as the factory OS - then you would have to install Windows 10 as the second OS using the Windows 10 Home generic product key in a PID.txt file.

You could also run Windows 10 "trial" in a virtual machine.
Hyper-V virtualization - Setup and Use in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

The generic product keys are:
Generic Windows 10 Home TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99
Generic WIndows 10 Pro VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T

Also, I suppose if you have regular Windows 10 installed and activated, then you could install Windows 10 Single Language as the second "trial" Windows 10. Or vice versa.

Hi Matti23,

Welcome to Seven forums.

It could be an issue with an update or software installed by you recently. Perform a system restore:

Also, Press Windows +P together and you should be able to find duplicate option there. Let us know if you select duplicate then what happens.

I want to use 2 displays using HDMI, but the only problem is that when I plug in my HDMI to my TV through the motherboard, it does not work. I know some do not support it which is why I am coming here. My mother board and graphics card are in my account so look there for the details on my computer. Thank you

A:Can I use my motherboard HDMI port as well as my graphics card HDMI?

I've seen a number of computers where the addition of an Add-in Video card automatically disabled the onboard adapter. The only thing that worked to restore the onboard adapter was to remove that Add-in card. You may want to consider getting a different Add-in card that has 2 HDMI ports. Or if your motherboard has 2 PCIe X16 slots get a 2nd matching card.

Well, lets just jump right into it, earlier this week, my HDMI monitor was working a-ok, (scepter e22 i think) to the best of my knowledge a update decided to install itself overnight, and then, low and behold, the laptop wont even detect that a device is connected, not in device manager or devices and printers however, when i go into display properties, it allows me to change the res and size of something, but it wont tell me what. HDMI is working, i booted into a live Linux mint, and it worked without a hitch, i went in and uninstalled the display driver(Intel hd graphics) then reinstalled, booted in safe mode, nada. nothing works, what has the internet got for me?

I have downloaded a free trial for some iPod software for my PC, but when I received it the software was not compatible with my iPod, and when the patch came out the free trial had finished.

How do I make a free trial work again? Do I edit the registry? There must be a way to get it working again, I do not like the idea of every free trial that I install permanently taking a place in my registry to say that it has been used.

A:Free Trial Re-Activating

You can try to delete the corresponding registry keys in the HKCU/Software, HKLM/Software, and try again, but do not forget to back up your registry before trying any of these or at least create a restore point.

If it does not solve your problem, then you can only reuse it after a reformat.

Hi I got "Kaspersky 30 day free trial" and all was fine until the licence ran out. I uninstalled it (or tried to anyway) but the uninstall failed 3 quarter way through! Theres a file in C/programs called Kasperskylab and I cant rename/remove or delete it.
The main problem was I got Avast antivirus but it wouldnt install fully due to Software conflicts or something (I cant recall exactly the phrase) then my pc froze and kept freezing on startup until I used safe mode and removed Avast.
Obviously I cant install a new antivirus until I lose Kasperskylab but as I say I cant delete or rename it etc, any ideas how I get rid?

A:How does free trial software track?

have always wondered that same question.

i think (*i think*) its an entry in your registry. after the trial period ends and you delete the trial program and you instigate another trial session, the registry "knows". it will refuse a re trial.

I got a new desktop recently, and after a month or so, I believe it was after an update (not sure) it stopped recognizing the TV... I tested with a monitor of a friend, using a HDMI cable and it worked fine.

I tested other cables and other TVs, tried to update my v?deo driver and also revert it to the previous version...

Nothing seems to work, I got a new TV just to play my games, don't like Win 8 too much and cannot afford a new monitor right now (just got TV + desktop).

My HP22-3130na came ready loaded with Cyberlink PowerDirector12, Cyberlink PhotoDirector and Cyberlink Power Media Player 14, Are these free or trial versions?

View Solution.

A:Included Cyberlink Software, Free or Trial?

Hi, These products are free and without any 'trial time period' restrictions - they are basically slightly 'cut down' versions of Cyberlinks commerc ial offerings. One point to be aware of is that you will occassionally get prompts to either UPDATE or UPGRADE - the Update option just updates the free version, however the Upgrade option will take you to Cyberlinks webpage to purchase the full retail version. Regards, DP-K

I like using paid antivirus.I've used the free trial but I always uninstall them before its runs out so I dont have to pay.I've used one in particular.How much time should you leave it before you install it again ?

A:Paid anti virus:how often can you use them for a free trial?

Once a trial version has expired it cannot be used again. Reinstalling it will not work.

Last night while updating Malwarebytes free I had the option to go for the trial version, so I did.
So today I log on and find everything seem takes longer to load and I can't open Avira Free from the desktop icon and there's no sign of it in the taskbar. Tried right click/run as administrator to no avail.  I eventually opened it from the start menu.
Could this have something to do with the Malwarebytes update?

A:Malwarebytes trial vs Avira free question

Hi redjim It's possible that there has been a conflict with Avira and Malwarebytes, and that now Avira refuses to launch, but I doubt. Avira and Malwarebytes are supposed to be compatible with each other. If you restart one more time, does the situation goes back to normal or not?

I downloaded Malwarebytes Free about 8 days ago, my computer has been working a lot better,also have Norton NIS, it is now telling me my trial will be over in 4 days, thought the free version was always free?

A:Malwarebytes Free telling me trial will be over in 4 days

New downloads of Malwarebytes always gives you like a 15 day free trial of the on duty-ACTIVE Protection *Paid version if you click "yes" It's telling you your Free trial of what the paid version protects IS about to run out. You must have clicked Yes. From now on you'll have to run a scan manually to see if you're got anything on the PC. I have the Paid version for the rare times I use Windows. It blocks things on the fly very well if you happen to come across them. I would also advise using Malwarebytes free version of Anti-Exploit. That blocks drive-by Browser exploits very well. They just created a paid version to that as they came out of Beta testing now. Difference is the paid version protects Adobe Reader, Office, Media player and other things. Free version shields the browsers and add on's (including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera) and Java exploit. PAID version covers everything.  I used this all through it's Beta testing from the day it was first with Zero Vulnerability Labs to when Malwarebytes bought it from them. It was so good that MWbytes has it now. Your Free trial is over, but you will still be able to use MWbytes to scan your PC.

A friend of mine wants to give win7 a try but his very much afraid of legal issues when downloading it at torrents, Is there any other way to get a free and legal download of windows 7 for trial purposes?

A:Where to get Win7 final version for FREE trial ?

I have managed to search for a free trial of windows 7, and found them at Microsoft MSDN and TechNet, however you have to be a subscriber in order to have the trial key which I think the trial would last between 90 to 120 days. If you asked me few weeks ago you could have it by now, but Microsoft has officially closed the release candidate subscription.

The uninstallation of my Norton Internet Security trial (pre-installed on laptop when purchased) is just a hunch I have as to why I have been encountering the BSOD, I realise i may be completely wrong in this assumption but will gladly accept any help and advice sent my way as i need this laptop for university and the BSOD seems to enjoy popping up when I'm doing work for my course.

Windows 7:
- 64bit OS
- an OEM
- Less than 2 months old

So I downloaded Nitro.pdf program because it will convert pdf to text - well I guess its not any text, it has to  be WORD PROGRAM - and what I have is Jarte so when I convert the file and it opens there is nothing there.
So i need to download WORD somehow - does anyone know a safe place to download word?
Time is my enemy right now - when it rains it pours. 
I'm in a panic mode.   CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE?


You can use Nitro to export to plain text, just click the "To Other" button and select one of the dropdown options.However, if you still need a Word Processor, you can use the free LibreOffice "Writer" program, which is very similar to Microsoft Word and can edit almost all of the same files.

OK so to be clear you installed the trial, then bought a product key and entered it? And since this happens when you click the shortcut, I assume your trial period has also expired, correct?

Recently, I just updated Avast! (the FREE one) to the new version because it didn't work properly. That fixed the problem. After 2 or 3 weeks, Avast shows this:

I have been using Avast! Free for years now. I didn't upgrade to the pro version or anything. It also says "Avast Pro Antivirus" at the top of the Avast window.
Any ideas on how to fix this? I want the free Avast! free version, not the trial of the pro version.

If you were using the free Avast! and didn't upgrade to PRO, then you won't lose anything by uninstalling Avast, downloading the Avast cleanup tool from their site and running it to clean all the left in crap, and then installing Avast! free again from scratch.

If you've been using the 30-day version of Microsoft Office 2010, here's a nice tip for you: the testing period can be extended for up to six months. Much like Windows, the popular productivity suite contains a so called rearm function that gives you 30 extra days to activate the program. The command can be used up to five times, and if used at the end of each 30-day grace period, you can run Office 2010 for up to 180 days without entering an activation key.

Hi there, My sound is not working. I only have a HDMI Sound output. However, I don't have any HDMI Output in my computer. I reinstalled windows a couple of times lately, but i don't know for sure if thats the problem.
Right now im using Windows 7 32-Bit, My hardware specs are: CPU: Intel Duo 2 Core. Graphics Card: AMD ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series. Any help or such will be Very much appreciated

A:Sound not working, Only have HDMI Sound Output, But no HDMI port in PC

the HDMI sound is most likely off your GPU but that series seems to not have a HDMI port so that is odd. If you can make sure your onboard audio is on in your BIOS and also run the tool on this page so that you can update all your system info for us. System Info - See Your System Specs

Hey guys,
My windows 10 pc recently updated itself and I lost some HDMI audio functionality. When you click on the little speaker icon on the lower right side of your screen and choose playback devices. My Yamaha HDMI received is the default device and under properties, it used to display under supported formats, all of the latest Hi Def codecs like Dolby TrueHD, DTS-MA, etc. Those are now all missing. I just get the legacy ones. They were working perfectly prior to this week! I have not done any other changes. It looks like windows downloaded a Intel graphics HD driver and I also tried the latest Nvidia graphics/HD audio drivers with same result.

I cannot get the missing codecs back! I need them for Blu-ray file playback via Kodi media server.

any help would be awesome!

I had Internet access this morning on my desktop computer prior to upgrading my free avast software to the trial version.
After I upgraded it, I no longer can access the Internet. I'm not sure how or why that happened but I was wondering if you could help me to restore my connection please.
I rang my service provider and they were unable to help.
I'm running Windows XP.
My modem is showing as connected and my computer is picking up the signal from the Ethernet cable also. When I hover the mouse over the local area connection icon it shows that the Internet is connected but the browsers all say Server Not Found.
Please help. Thanks
Phone: 00353862637387.

A:no internet connection Since i upgraded my free avast to the full trial version

I found this answer online in an internet forum similar to this one:  See Below:

Method 1 is not suitable for Windows XP. ***

Follow these steps incase your Internet connection is connected but you cant browse using any of the browsers.
You might be able to play games online like CS 1.6,DOTA or HORN but JUST cant access any website.
>> Resolve your DNS settings to that of Google's
1. Go to LAN settings
Control panel > Network and Inernet > Change adapter settings > Right click on local area connections > Properties > Click on IPv4 > Properties >
Use following DNS server address > Preferred DNS : Alternate DNS:
Check validate settings upon exit.
If it still doesnt work then repeat the above steps but uncheck validate settings.
>> WINSOCK reset
1.Go to run and type 'cmd' (Run as administrator)
Type "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" and press enter
Type "netsh winsock reset" and press enter
>>DNS Flush
1.Go to run and type 'cmd' (Run as administrator)
Type "ipconfig /flushdns" and press enter
If none of the above methods work then do a boot time scan using your antivirus cos it might be a virus attack thats causing the problem.

Hello guys!

I recently ran into a problem with my main LCD TV(I need to replace the power supply.) I use that LCD TV for my desktop computer, and right now all I have is my laptop. I use synergy to control both computers. However now it doesn't matter because I cannot see the desktop portion. Is there anyway for me to output my desktop computer to my laptop monitor?

Both my Desktop and Laptop have HDMI input. I also have the HDMI cord on hand right now I just don't know how I'd go about setting it up. I'd like to use synergy to control the desktop AND have it's output be on the laptop until my power supply arrives and I can fix my TV.

I'm using a Dell U3415W monitor. My video card is AMD Radeon RX480. The monitor is connected via DisplayPort to my computer. The monitor is connected via HDMI to my work laptop. When I want to switch over to HDMI, it acts as if I shut off the monitor on the Displayport shifting everything over to my secondary monitor. It causes no problem, but drives me nuts because when I switch back over to DIsplayPort, I have to move my open programs around again. Is there any simple way to make this stop? If I don't use DisplayPort, and instead use HDMI/DVI combination, the behavior described does not happen. I'm guessing that is just the way it is, but I'm hoping there is an easy way to make it stop.

I know someone with a Vista (Business) PC and he received a free upgrade notice to Win10. Is this correct and if so does it just mean that the OS will be installed without saving apps and files?

The free upgrade applies to qualified computers that are running Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8/8.1.

It does NOT apply to computers that are running Windows Vista.

Okey Dokey so the computer is running a wee bit slow, and one of the things I have been meaning to do anyway was a defrag and run a program to clean up the darn thing.

I am seeking opinions on a good program that does just that, and also gains/creates the most space on the HD.

Any suggestions?

A:How to migrate from old Win10 laptop to new Win10 laptop?

If you backup your data you can "restore" it to the new system.

You can copy the data from the old system to the external hard drive and from the hard drive to the new system.

You can enable file and printer sharing on the old system, share the folders containing your data, and then copy the data over the network to your new system.

There are other ways, but at least one of those should suffice.
