Preferred Solution: Warranty Service - 0ver 230 day to repair, really?

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.)

Howdy, Is it possible to get HP to fix a broken laptop (spillage has broken the keyboard) out of the laptops warranty? Failing that, are there any repair shops licensed/recommended by HP in the UK? Thanks  

A:Out of Warranty Repair (UK)

Is the damage confined to the keyboard? That is not expensive or difficult and just about any computer shop should be able to handle it and it is even possible in many cases to do it yourself.  Please let us know if you want to try replacement. If not the best way to go about it is to procure the part and take it and the laptop to a local shop.  Where are you located in the UK? See pages 74-77 of the Manual here: Service Manual https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuovxquGRFk The video is also useful. Removal of the keyboard part stops at about 7:50.  Post back with any more questions.

I would have thought there would be others with such an issue but I couldn't find any answered question about my issue on the forums nbsp My laptop purchased in dec- has a broken left hinge part As a result I cannot open close the lid without almost fully breaking the hinge Even with the lid up its extremely unstable Needless to say the laptop is out of commission at the moment nbsp I am considering getting it repaired since it runs decently enough Its out of warranty though I tried to check my options at the HP Support portal and of Out warranty repair answered a few questions including serial and product and the website stated that the warranty has expired and I need to pay for phone support So I know phone support is not going to fix the hinge issue and I Out of warranty repair am not sure why I am being asked to pay to just check on my options nbsp I need to know the cost of the repair and the turnaround time And I opened up the back cover and tried to figure out what is wrong basically the mold attached to the base of the laptop that holds the screw connecting the hinge and the base is broken I want to verify that HP will accept a laptop that was opened by the customer nbsp Any HP support folks here that can answer my questions nbsp Thanks

Hello. About a month ago I had my Y70-70t repaired under warranty for flickering/black screen problems. The service centre replaced the screen assembly and it was fine for a couple days the few times I used it until the same issue resurfaced. I took it back and they refused to accept it without me paying a fee for them to diagnose the problem. This was the day the original factory warranty expired, which perplexed me as the repair they made that should have fixed the same issue not even a month prior did not fix the problem. What is the warranty period on repairs? Its pretty annoying the service centre won't accept it back without a charge even tho the repairs they made failed to correct the issue.

On 5/23 I sent my under-warranty T540p to repair a failing screen.  It was received by the depot on 5/24.  Almost two weeks later, support still has no ETA on when it will be repaired, and the repair status has been stuck on "Hold for customer information" since Friday 5/27.  When I first called, I was told this would be a quick repair.  Unless I can get this back soon, I'm going to be forced to by a new laptop (needless to say, it most certainly will not be a Lenovo).  What's the point of having a three-year warranty if it doesn't include even semi-timely repairs???

Who has ever sent their computers in for a repair when it's under warranty to the manufacturer's repair center?

I am having to send mine, because I can't get the shutdown and sleep problem resolved.

Acer says its a hardware problem.

A:Computer Repair Under Warranty Question?

I bought an Acer Aspire T310 desktop machine (the first time I'd purchased an Acer product) in early 2006, which had a faulty DVD/CD burner. I contacted the repair centre and they assured me that if i sent it in they'd replace the drive.

The service centre was (and is) about 80km away, and it so happened that I'd be in that vicinity on business in a few days, so I arranged to drop it off then. I did so, and then went off to conduct other business.

When I returned several hours later, it was ready, with a new drive fitted, at no cost due to the warranty.

Obviously in my case I virtually eliminated any chance of damage-in-transit, but I certainly can't complain about the service I received from Acer.

Interestingly, having owned seven Acers over the years (I currently own three - one desktop and two laptops) that was the only time I've had an issue of any kind, with any of them.

Needless to say, my next machine will probably also be an Acer.


Wenda.

I purchased a new Spectre X360 and the 3 year accidental damage warranty.  It claims 3 day turn-around in-home repair.  I tried to use the warranty for a cracked screen and I am told there is a 2 month delay for the part to be sent to me. How do I fix this?

I contacted Lenovo Egypt and they told me to go to service provider to get these issues fixed. The service provider said they will replace the trackpad but they see that the screen is normal and they have no solution for it.
 
Before I bougth it, I made sure that all waranty services can be done from Egypt but Lenovo Egypt refused to replace the laptop and the service provider refuses to fix the screen. It is really disappointing!!

Hi, I purchased an Inspiron 1543 on Oct 27, 2015 from an authorized dell store at GIP Mall Noida and since then I have been strutggling with Dell Warranty team to update the warranty status under dell festive offers. They have updated only NBD warranty date to Oct 2018 sine I have purchased two years extended warranty, but all the other warranty dates are yet to be updated and they are not even replying my emails. The worst customer service I have ever seen. I will never recommend anytone to buy a dell product. I have provided everything they reqested already. My service tag #<ADMIN NOTE: Service tag removed per privacy policy>. My contact # are<ADMIN NOTE: Phone number removed per privacy policy>. Can anyone help? And specially Dell should not sell it's product through cheaters like Skope computers(A dell authorized showroom, GIM Mall, Noida.) They are thieves and cheaters and not have manners.

Hello. You have posted on the Laptop Audio discussion board. I suggest that you post on the Customer Care board. Do not include your service tag and contact numbers, because those will be removed as per forum policy. If someone from Dell replies to your post, they will ask you to send them that information via the forum's private message feature.
I hope you find success in resolving your warranty issues.

Notebook going in for warranty servicing, replacement of fan.

I wish to store VHP system and Vista setup information on an external HDD.

Has anyone found a freeware or workaround to allow me to save and then restore my Vista settings and programs to a new default install of Vista?

I understand when my notebook is returned with a new fan, VHP will be at factory default status.

Files, documents and the like will already be on a backup HDD via Sync Toy 2.0.
.
Am more concerned about the Vista setup and other aspects such as Windows Mail. Contacts, Windows Calendar, etc.

Will I have to reinstall all my programs and the like?

Suggestion welcome, use detailed instructions however, please.

I sent my Asus K52Je to the warranty service last month, for a HD issue.

When returned, the HD was strangely partitioned:



Now, the Disk 0 has:
- a first (hidden) and not recognized partition: a 336 GB (!) RECOVERY;
- C:\ is the 116 GB NTFS
- D:\ is the 13.6 GB NTFS.

Should I resize the RECOVERY partition without any problem??
And after that, could I extend the C:\ partition? (I don't want to lose my licence and prefer not to use the 9-DVD-recovery tool...)

thank you.

A:resizing Recovery partition after a warranty service

You will under no circumstances lose your Win7 license as long as you have a genuine Win7 COA sticker on the machine. You can reinstall this in any way you wish and MS will protect you, which is why they put the Product Key on the COA sticker - you should back it up now in case it rubs off.

In fact most tech enthusiasts prefer to get rid of the bloatware by Clean Reinstalling Factory OEM Windows 7. Everything needed is in the blue link. Asus may not support a Clean Reinstall but they cannot void your hardware warranty. I would simply not tell them if I reinstall. You'll get better support here anyway.

With such incompetent partitioning I wonder if Recovery will even run. Can you cue it up to see? I would also make the Recovery disks now so you have a backup if you want the preinstalled Win7. Another backup is to save a Win7 backup image of your customized install: Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup. With these backups you may feel you can afford to delete the Recovery partition.

Either way you'll want to shrink it. I'd use Disk mgmt first to see how much it wants to shrink it. But you'll need to use free Partition Wizard bootable CD to safely Resize C to the left afterwards, which can also be used to shrink Recovery more if Disk Mgmt bumps into files in the way. You'll need to leave ample breathing room for Recovery to function. Partition Wizard Move/Resize Partition Video Help.

Personally I would rely on Recovery disks if i ever needed to fall back to factory condition to resell the unit. Otherwise I'd rely on a Win7 backup image of a factory install after I Clean Up Factory Bloatware, or for the very best performance I'd Clean Reinstall.

Hi This is a rant plea for help from someone at Dell nbsp For the past months I ve been through the wringer with Dell s warranty service nbsp Short story for patience horrible service with Dell's Out warranty of those who don t want to read this entire tail of woe nbsp I ve been through LCD screens one motherboard replacement nbsp and now one entire system replacement - Out of patience with Dell's horrible warranty service and I still have a computer with issues because Dell keeps sending me JUNK and wrong parts - nbsp And to top it off my warranty is about to run out And now the long story My story begins almost a year ago when I purchased a new Inspiron nbsp I loved that laptop and things were great up until Feb of this year when the LCD screen developed an issue with burn-in image retention I contacted Dell tech support about this and the tech agreed that the screen needed replacing He said he d send out an on-site service tech with an LCD replacement kit and a motherboard nbsp I thought sending the motherboard was strange since the issue was clearly with the LCD screen nbsp So I asked why they d send a motherboard nbsp The tech said incase the replacement LCD doesn t fix it nbsp Strange This should have been a red flag but I just shrugged it off Jump forward a few days later and the on-site tech shows up nbsp He says he doesn t know how to replace the screen in this model laptop nbsp He said any time he s tried the clips in the bezel break nbsp He also said Dell should have sent the entire LCD assembly as there are no instructions to replace the LCD screen only nbsp He called up Dell s on-site tech support line to see if they could supply him with instructions and Dell instructed him TO REPLACE THE MOTHERBOARD for an issue with an LCD screen nbsp He didn t know what to make of it but did what they said and replaced a PERFECTLY GOOD motherboard which OF COURSE didn t fix anything nbsp So the tech says to ask them for the entire LCD assembly nbsp So I contact Dell and ask them for the specific part number which to their credit they send nbsp But of course there are still issues with the screen Dead pixels backlight bleed and the touch screen often has a mind of its own and causes the cursor to go crazy nbsp Also at this point I m noticing the laptop runs much warmer than before there s a loud quot coil whine quot and the touchpad now randomly stops sometimes nbsp So my perfectly good motherboard was replaced with a broken one Great By this time screen number had arrived nbsp But it was the wrong part nbsp It was the k UHD screen and I had the p version nbsp I am a software developer and I use Linux and a lot of Java software which does not scale properly on Hi-DPI screens So once again I had to contact Dell and tell them I can t use a k screen After sending the wrong part Dell said they d replace the entire system with a refurbished one nbsp Great Finally an end to this I hoped nbsp But nope Dell sends me an Inspiron quot gaming laptop quot with a k screen Even after I specifically told them I am unable to use a k screen nbsp However by this time I had well and truly had enough nbsp I just wanted to be done with the entire ordeal nbsp But as I am beginning to learn there is apparently no end to it because guess what the Inspiron has a few issues of its own nbsp The screen dims flickers when certain shades of blue enter the screen lots of owners are complaining about this it s an inherent flaw of the LG quot pentle quot screen used in these There are a few youtube videos that show this if you search nbsp I could have just changed the resolution to p and lived with the flicker but nbsp It OVERHEATS LIKE CRAZY and the fan never shuts off nbsp Even when idle nbsp Tonight nbsp as I was trying to use it the thermal protection kicked in and it actually turned itself off right when I was in the middle of working nbsp UNACCEPTABLE I ve been patient and courteous throughout all this nbsp But now I ve had enough I am not going ...

A:Out of patience with Dell's horrible warranty service

Tough luck. I've also have had more hardware issues than I can count, including trackpad failures, fan issues, lights burnt out, etc... I just continuously had stuff break on my $1400 laptop for no reason. 
After months of dealing with this ***, I decided I just wanted Dell to buy the laptop back from me or give me store credit as that's really the only repayment for the amount of stress and issues this laptop has brought me. I was basically told by the highest level sales manager that I cannot return the laptop and I just have to go the Dell's support system. There is really nothing you can do except constantly call in service requests and once your warranty expires, like me, you are pretty much screwed.
That being said, I will never buy any Dell product again.

I have a HP ENVY m7-010dx that died last night.  Upon power up nothing happens except a continuous slow blinking light on the cap locks key.  I went through their online troubleshooting help section and it looks like it is a hardware issue and will be going in for warranty service.  The big problem I have is that the hard drive has lots of sensitive personal information on it that I believe a good tech could copy and fairly easily decipher.
 
So what can I do?  I have never removed an internal hard drive and accessed it as an external drive.  I really need to wipe all personal info before returning for warranty service.
 
Any ideas?
 
Thanks

DVDs?  USB flash drive?
 
How much personal info are you talking about?
 
Since most of us don't have that much (IMO) personal info on a system...either of the above should do.  Simply copy the data to new media and then delete it from your hard drive before sending.

I had sent my Y50-70 to Giat Solutions Service Center (Malaysia) to fix its screen. They found out that the part of the separator inside one of my USB port came out a little. But they decided it was CID (Customer Induced Damage). I recalled that the USB port was slightly tighter than the others when i first received it. I take a very good care of my laptop and i had not drop it once even after 1 year. The damage of the USB port looks nothing like those pictures Lenovo posted on their official website. I m very disappointed with the service since i paid a lot of money for that machine. If they cant fix the USB port for me, i can no longer trust the Lenovo Products. Please assist me.

When I went to buy a laptop, I have not considered any other laptop as I thought Dell would be perfect for me. However, let me tell you, it's not. Within the period of 1 month, I started getting touch pad issues which is not resolved completely yet. This is not ended here. I bought this laptop (which was the worst decision I have ever made) in October 2014 and this Dell dashboard shows my warranty expiring in July 2015. I am emailing to them and nobody even bothers to give a reply. On phone support I have asked several times that I want to extend my warranty, however nobody helped me for that too. Is this your SO CALLED superior customer service and quality product? If yes then please stop selling Dell Inspiron 3542 model. Pathetic touch pad!

I sent my laptop in to be serviced under warranty because the keyboard would not work. was denied service because of water damage but now my screen doesn't work, can someone help
 

A:My screen won't turn on after service was denied on warranty due to water damage

Water can destroy a laptop or any other electronic device. Chances are that the water sat underneath the keyboard and flowed onto the motherboard where it dried causing corrosion and damaging the motherboard permanently. You could take the laptop to a repair shop and they could give you a repair estimate. Of course, you will have to pay for this repair. If a liquid is spilled on a laptop in the future, immediately open it and turn it upside down. This allows the liquid not to hit and pool on the motherboard, or in a keyboard

I'd been struggling with my system freezing up and occasionally throwing the BSOD. The system would boot and run fine for about 2 minutes then it would act like it was being overtaxed, taking 30 seconds or more to respond to screen input. This is a i7 (64bit) processor with 4Gb of RAM and Process Explorer showed no appreciative activity. After hours of safemode tests removing and restoring countless third party services I found a informational error in the event log stating that the Windows Modules Installer had problems starting. So I disabled the WMI service and my system stopped freezing up ran just fine; however now windows Updates won't install. Obviously there is something wrong with the Windows installation subsystem; how do I repair this? I am running Windows 7 Pro

A:How to repair the windows update service

Here's the Services console Description of Windows Modules Installer (TrustedInstaller)
" Enables installation, modification, and removal of Windows updates and optional components. If this service is disabled, install or uninstall of Windows updates might fail for this computer. "

It should actually state " ... will fail for this computer " as TrustedInstaller is the Owner of all of the system files and if it's Disabled no updates will install.

With the WMI service still Disabled, open Windows Update in Control Panel.
Click the Change settings link in the left frame.
Click the drop down window under Important updates and set it to " Never check for updates (not recommended)"
Click OK and agree to the UAC prompt.

Now go back to the WMI service and set it's Startup type: to Manual.
How is the system behaving now ?

If the system is not stable now, then do not do any of the below steps. Instead, run the System File Checker since, according to your posted system specs, Service Pack 1 has not been installed yet - How to Repair Windows 7 System Files with System File Checker

If the system is stable, then go here, download, and save the Fixit - How do I reset Windows Update components
When the download completes close all open programs and web browsers.
With the system connected to the internet, run MicrosoftFixit50202.msi and choose it's Default mode.
Whether prompted to or not, restart the system after the Fixit finishes running.

Is the system stable now after it's been restarted ?
The Fixit should have installed the latest release of the Windows Update Agent and may have reset Windows Update to " Install update automatically (recommended) "
If the Windows Update setting was not changed to the above then please, do not change it yet.
If Windows Update setting was changed and the system is not stable, then set it to Never check for updates once again.

Using Windows Explorer ( Start orb > All Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer ) navigate to Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
Move all of the contents of the Download subfolder to the Recycle Bin for now.

Go back to Windows Update and set it to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download or install them "
Click OK, agree to the UAC prompt.

Windows Update will then do a check for updates. Is the system stable when it does that ?
If yes, then an issue in the Download subfolder was the cause of the instability.

If the system is not stable now, then run the Fixit once again and choose it's Aggressive mode.

Note: That mode will delete the updates shown on the View update history page of Windows Update but the previously installed updates can still be viewed by either opening Control Panel > System & Security > Windows Update > View installed updates or by opening Programs and Features > View installed updates.
There is no need to reinstall the previously installed updates.

Restart the system after the Fixit finishes running.
Is it stable now ?
If yes, then there was most likely an issue with either the update database (DataStore.edb) or with the updating components Permissions.

Hi If the system board / mother board has been replaced then I expect all of the problems stem from there. The "recovery" involves what exactly? The system board gets registered with Microsoft to provide a Licence/Activation key, so if you have an unregistered board then I don't expect you will ever solve this without either buying a key, or convincing HP to correct it for you. So unless you can go back to a registered copy of W 8.X and upgrade to  W10 then you are stuck, hence my query on the word recovery.

Yesterday I tried to install Service Pack 2 for 32bit Vista.

When restarting the screen freezes, showing the following message: !! 0xc0190036 !! 1707/69942 (WMIADAP.EXE)

I've tried running startup repair from a boot disk, but it runs forever (left overnight last time)

The boot disk's system restore doesn't work either - it runs forever on finalising files.

I can't run windows in safe mode either and unfortunately, this is where my rather limited technical expertise (and patience) end!

Is there anything that can be done!? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Can't restore or repair after failed service pack 2 installation

Please post the entire onscreen error message...and tell us at exactly what point it appears.

Am I to understand...that the system appears to install SP2 correctly...and the error surfaces during the reboot after all files have been installed?

This item is under warranty and received at the HP Service Center in Jeffersonville, Indiana on Tuesday September 21. Everytime I check the online status it shows "not received". I have proof from UPS that it was signed for at the warehouse dock. I started a chat session last week with someone overseas and they said "my computer is safe, don't worry about it and the status will be updated in 1-2 business days". As of today the status is still the same. I was told since it was returned to the HP Service Center via UPS, they have no way of tracking the return in the system. The service order number is BJDH168901. Can someone please attempt to find my laptop or give me the status if it is being repaired by one of your technicians? Thank You

A:Repair Windows Installer Service in Vista (All Versions)

Hello, and welcome to the Vista Forums!

Thank you so much for this! It was very nicely written and researched. May I just add my 2 cents, to provide a full fix.






1. At the command prompt, type msiexec /unregister , and then press ENTER.
2. At the command prompt, type msiexec /regserver, and then press ENTER.
3. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to close the command prompt.
4. Remove the software program from Add or Remove Programs.









sfc /purgecache



Sadly these no longer work in Windows Vista and 7. All of these switches have been removed. These are Windows XP fixes, and do not apply.

Moreover, you are missing just the tiniest bit. Many service errors come from the registry.

I shall post a registry fix this evening. If the services are corrupt in the registry, they won't work! They need to be added back. I cannot find a copy of the registry script in these five seconds, and so I shall re-make it this evening.

Again, please don't take this to heart. We are always looking for new members, especially ones who can write so well, and I am just adding to your post, to provide a really top notch, and full soltution. If you are looking for a bit of training, or have any questions about anything, perhaps you are particulary interested in this registry script, then do contact me, or post on the forum, depeding on what is appropriate

Thanks so much!

Instructions for a Windows 7 Repair installation.
 
A Windows 7 Repair Installation will require a installation disc.
 
If you do not have a Windows 7 installation disc you can download a free legal ISO image of Windows 7 SP1 at  Windows 7 Forums.  You will need to download the same version of Windows 7 that you have installed,  This image is hosted by the Digital River store which is an official distribution partner of Microsoft.  This is a genuine untouched image which is safe to download. 
 
Attention:  If you do have a Windows installation disc, skip Part A and go to Part B, Step 1b.
 
Part A, Steps 1a - 6a
 
How to burn ISO image using Windows Burn Disk Image.
 
Notice:  This applies only to Windows 7 and Windows 8, earlier versions do not have this.
 
1.  Place a blank CD or DVD in the tray of your optical drive and close the tray.
 
2.  After you have downloaded the ISO image you want to burn right click on the Start orb, then choose Windows Explorer.
 
3.  When Explorer opens click on Downloads in the left pane.  Scroll down till you find the ISO file you want and double click on it.  Click on Burn Disk Image.
 
4.  In the image below you will see Disk burner:, this should be set to the optical drive you want to use.  Click on Verify disc after burning if you want to Windows to verity the disc image after burn.  Click on burn.
 

 
5.  In the image below you can see that the green progress bar, when the image is finished burning the bar will be filled.
 

 
6.  After the image has completed being burned click on Close. 
 
Please note:  In order to boot from this DVD you may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order, and the hdd is the second device.
 
 
Part B, Steps 1b - 10b
 
1b)  Place the installation disc in the tray of the CD/DVD drive, close the tray and restart the computer.
 
2b)  You will be prompted to press any key to start the installation, I find the space bar handy.
 
At this point the setup process will load files, this will take several minutes.
 
3b)  You will now need to choose the  Language, Time, currency format, and Keyboard or input method that you'd like to use.
 
After this is done click on Next.
 

 
4b)  Click on the Repair your computer link at the bottom-left of the Install Windows window.
 
This link will begin the Windows 7 System Recovery Options.
 

 
5b)  System Recovery Options will now search your hard drive(s) for any Windows 7 installations.  This will take several minutes.
 
No participation is required on your part at this time, wait till it has finished and the next window opens.
 

 
6b)  Choose the Windows 7 installation that you'd like to perform the Startup Repair on, then click on Next
 

 
7b)  Click on the Startup Repair link from list of recovery tools in System Recovery Options.
 

 
For a future reference, there are several other diagnostic and recovery tools available in the Windows 7 System Recovery Options including System Restore, System Image Recovery, Windows Memory Diagnostic, and Command Prompt.
 
8b)  The Startup Repair tool will now search for problems in the system files.
 
If Startup Repair finds a problem with any system files the tool may suggest a solution which you will need to confirm, or may solve the problem automatically.
 

 
9b)  Startup Repair will now attempt to repair whatever problems it found with system files.  
 
Note:  If Startup Repair did not find any problems with system files you won't see this step.
 

 
Important: Your computer may or may not restart several times during this repair process.  This is normal, yo... Read more

I have a Dell XPS M1530 with VIsta home 32 bit.  I did a Windows update and now I cannot boot. I get stuck in the Windows Error Recovery screen and I am unable to run start up repair or start windows normally.  My optical drive was broken but I replaced it to see if i could just reinstall windows and be done with it but that doesnt work either. I also have a power supply that gives me an error every time I boot. I am not sure where to start. My problems seem to keep getting worse.
Thanks!
 

A:Vista home 32 bit service pack update stuck on startup repair

Hi artoodles,
I’d suggest you to run the diagnostics on the computer by following the steps mentioned below and check if there is any issue with the hardware on your system.Turn on or restart the computer.Immediately at the Dell logo screen, starting tapping the <F12> key once a second until the One Time Boot menu appears (if the computer boots to Windows turn the computer off and try again).At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics, PSA+ or Enter ePSA, then press <Enter> to begin the PSA.Write down any error codes listed. Reply to us with the error codes.
Also, I would suggest you to boot the system into ‘Advanced options’ (F8 during startup) screen and try booting up the system from ‘Last Known good configuration’.
 
If you have not altered the hard drive partitions on the system then you can restore the system to factory state by following the link below.
 http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/555/KCS/KcsArticles/ArticleView?c=us&l=en&s=biz&docid=DSN_336966#Issue3
 
Note: Restoring the original factory image erases ALL existing data. This includes files, folders, programs, drivers, E-mails, photos. Before performing a PC Restore, back up all personal files by contacting a local technician. If you do not back up your personal files, the data will be lost.

I have a minor problem with my Lenovo laptop (Vista OS). I may have self-inflicted this one.

Each time I want to fire up my wireless, I have to click on the icon and do a "repair." It then pokes around and says "do you want to run windows wireless" I say yes, and it is off the races.

But the service does not start itself upon boot up.

Now, confessions time, a few weeks ago, in an effort to speed up the boot up (which was VERY slow), I followed the advice of some tech postings and either disabled or set to manual start some of the services. I must have nicked the zero wireless, but for the life of me I can't see which one it is by the descriptions.

Suggestions? I hate to run ALL the services back on. The sytem does boot up and even shut down faster.

Thanks in advance.

Backup any files you want to keep first.

I am not certain but it may take the install files from the recovery partition (perhaps someone can confirm this), I know this worked with a recent HP job I did.

I have a Packard Bell easynote (TM98-GN-030UK), and have had it since Christmas.

On Wednesday, it failed to startup, flashing a quick blue screen and then immediately rebooting. Therefore I cannot get information from the blue screen.
The startup repair option goes to a default blue screen with green nature-y bits. It loads no options, even if I leave it for an hour.

I have tried the system repair disk. It goes to the same background, asks for my language/keyboard settings, and then when I click 'next' again does nothing.

So, I cannot access any kind of repair or restore options as neither does anything beyond show me the default background.
Thanks,

Hi,

I have a problem with my HP Pavilion MS228UK. When I power it on, it runs Startup Repair and then gives me the mesage 'Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically'. In the details all the tests were completed successfully with error codes '0x0' except the last one which gave 'error code 0x490' with the message 'No OS files found on disc'. I ran the memory diagnostic tool which found no faults. I have tried to boot system recovery using F11 but that is not working either.

All help appreciated

First of all you could use any Linux Live-cd program to make a bootable cd from a downloaded iso file and then boot to Linux and then copy and paste whatever files you need to a usb flash drive or external hard drive.
What I would suggest first though is boot to first "r" for Recovery Console and run "chkdsk /r" to repair the hard drive.

A:BSOD upon repair mode, UBS boot disk created but no repair option

I think if you don't want to reinstall then you could try booting the laptop with a Linux live cd/usb and renaming/deleting bootdefragdriver.sys and seeing if that helps

I encountered the same problem awhile back; it's a known bug with the Windows Installer.
MOPER made this suggestion & it worked perfectly for me. Give it a try..

Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.
here

Install and run it, look for an entry similar to "WordPerfect". Delete the entry and all should be fine.
[*] NOTE: Please replace "WordPerfect" with the name you got from the Windows Installer"

Otherwise work through these same steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start which try everything to repair unstable Win7 including hardware tests if indicated, and if necessary getting a baseline perfect Clean Reinstall.

I took delivery of a new (and expensive!) PC in January but last week it started giving me constant and varied errors.

The isssues range from Blue screen, black screen, failing to load windows, startup repair needed often, system restore needed often, and when it does load windows there are various error messages.
System info:
Intel Core i5 2500K
Win 7 Home Premium 64bit
Original OS installed on the system, an OEM version
PC just a few weeks old

Any help and guidance is much appreciated...

A:BSOD, Startup Repair, System Repair and other errors on nearlly new PC

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (probably a driver).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

If you have Raid > update its Driver.
Memtest.





Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.



RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver verifier






Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Special Pool", "Force Pending I/O Requests" and "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen.
Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly.
The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out.
If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation.

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

 c:\>ping 17.120.0.27

You could try going into safe mode, hit F8 during boot up.  Not real sure but I would then go to windows update, it may see the bad load.  It is worth a try!

Hi-

Can you boot into safe-mode?

Also, do you have either a recovery partition, recovery disk, or the windows installation disk? (some of the tools could help, especially if safe mode doesn't work)

Regards,

Mark
