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.)

Hi: According to the parts list for your notebook it comes with a Ralink RT3290LE 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 combination adapter. Did you try the W10 Ralink bluetooth driver? This package contains the driver installation package for the Mediatek/Ralink Bluetooth in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system.

Dear all, Off late my laptop has been throwing weird ntdll.dll and other such .dll errors in the middle of gameplay. It's downright irritating to the point that now it's become infuriating. Would re-installing my Windows 7 64bit OS help get rid of these errors? I am assuming it would, and tried to download the Windows 7 64bit installer s/w from Microsoft's website using the serial key given at the back of my laptop. To my ultimate irritation, the site threw a message saying that this particular OS has been installed by the hardware provider (HP) and I should contact them directly...WHAT?!?! Would be grateful if the experts here would help put me out of my misery! Thanks in advance!

You can reinstall the Windows 7 version that your notebook was delivered with by using the recovery disk set or usb recovery media.   The media was suposed to have created by you with the use of  the HP Recovery media creator utility.   You should have created  one or the other  shortly after you setup your notebook for the first time. In the search box type in recovery and you should see an HP Recovery media creator and an HP Recovery Manager appear, unless you happen to have deleted it already.  You can still create the recovery media if you didn't do it before, unless you happen to have deleted the HP Recovery media Creator utility.  If you live in North America you can check to see if they sell the recovery media. HP does not stock recovery media for notebooks and desktop PC past three years of introduction into the market.

I purchased my HP Pavilion a6532f in 2009 and it came preloaded with Windows Vista. It has an AMD Athlon X2 CPU, 3gb RAM, and shows that it supports 64bit OS. I plan on upgrading to 8gb of RAM, I can get this working. Since Microsoft will no longer support Vista soon, I installed Windows 7 64bit (did not upgrade since you can't do an upgrade from 32-64bit). The install completed with no glitches and installed all my drivers. My problem is with Windows Update. It never stops seaching, even after 8 hrs.  I start the "Windows update" as normal, but it never finishes searching. I have already tried the 3 methods listed here - Windows Update Never Stops Looking for Updates. I have installed KB3102810 and KB3135445. All this to no avail.  Any help is appreciated.

Z70-80 laptop. I replaced Win8.1 with Win7 64bit a long time ago (downloaded Win7 drivers from Lenovo). Bluetooth and cardreader never worked after that. I have recently needed Bluetooth and have been unsuccessful at getting it working. Windows shows bluetooth driver as Microsoft Generic. I downloaded more drivers from Lenovo and have manually installed each of them to see if they will work, and they don't. Part of the problem is that I don't know what hardware is in this machine. I know this is not a hardware problem, because I can put the old Win 8.1 harddrive in, and bluetooth works with it. What is the bluetooth hardware in this machine? Where can I get Windows 7 64 bit drivers for bluetooth?

A:Z70-80 Win7 64bit bluetooth driver needed

The caveats of downgrading. If the driver not supporting Win 7 you're out of luck. Win 7 doesn't have USB 3.0 drivers either and whether anything works properly was a lot in beta and could be trouble. Win 8 driver would likely be the best bet.

A:Unable to use bluetooth transfer in hp pavilion dm4

Well your DM4 was built for Windows 7, so it depends if HP wrote Bluetooth drivers that will work under Windows 8. A quick check of HP's support site, shows that they have updated software for the DM4 series.

Software & driver downloads HP Pavilion dm4-3055dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support

There is a Bluetooth driver under networking.

The only other thing is to check the Device Manager and see if the Bluetooth is even recognized. If it isn't listed (could be listed as a generic unknown device if the driver isn't installed), you may have a hardware problem.

Check all that and install the driver. If it is still not listed in the Device Manager, go buy a $14 Bluetooth 4.0 usb device. Asus has a great one on Amazon. It should work great and will be more up current standards since it is 4.0.

This is a older desktop, and when I was trying to install a USB bluetooth Kinivo BT 400 some how the Dell 655 Bluetooth Module popped up. I was told years ago from dell that this did not come w/ Bluetooth installed.

I called Kinivo support and said that probably my wireless card did have the Bluetooth built in.

Kinivo support suggested that I restart and hit the F2 key to get into the BIOS. I did that and am a loss where to find the Bluetooth to turn off.

I have used the Kinivo BT-400 for a few years no w/o a problem, but I just purchased a Bluetooth speaker and I must of did something wrong to get this 365 to show up and block my working Kinivo.

Hope I explained this so somebody would understand. I also was told by just disabling the 365 in the device manager would not turn it off

A:Alienware Aurora Win7 64bit (how do I turn off bluetooth in bios)

I looked at one Alienware Aurora on the Dell site. There is nothing in the BIOS, for that one that I looked at, for Bluetooth.
I would just disable it in the Device Manager.

Dell has a special support forum for Alienware users. You could also ask there. Be sure to state the specific Aurora model, as there are several.

I'd suggest sourcing the latest updates for your NIC/audio/video/AV drivers directly from the vendors, and testing what happens when all drivers are updated as much as possible.

Power state transition lockups are almost always caused by incompatibilities with the BIOS or bugs in drivers.

So I posted a question about a nightmare sticky-filter-toggle-mouse scroll-kets situation I was having. After trying every suggestion I could find I decided it was best to do a system restore.
That was 3 hours ago.
I got my manual and pressed f11 and it said press f11 for system restore so I did it so I'm sure thats the program I'm in, but for 3 hours all its done is the same thing over and over and over...says "windows is loading files" and then goes through a reboot process. Some people posted things similar to this but mentioned a blue screen- I have no blue screen and no real idle time. Just the normal reboot screens and the "windows is loading files" screen.

Is this normal? I hope so. I cant deal with more computer nonsense today!

A:System Interrupts 35% CPU usage in safe mode HP Pavilion dm4 64bit

OK maybe we should have done this first.

I removed the battery and the CPU usage fell massively but was still spiking to using 35% of CPU frequently.
A bit more detective work and more searching online threw up issues with HP wireless assistant.
We updated the HP update - this did not update my old version of HPWA, so we downloaded v 40.0.10 (impossible to find on the HP website but we did find it on another site for free) just in case we needed it - ie in case the wireless button stopped working when we disabled HPWA.

THEN disabled the old HPWA - no problem with wireless button or internet access so have not installed the newer version. This fixed the spiking of CPU and my keyboard works fine (haven't yet checked the USB port).

THEN I experimented with putting the battery back.

Miraculously, CPU usage is down to background 0% and the fan has stopped whirring away continuously.
I am now experimenting to see if battery lasts longer then 1 hour this time.

I recently acquired a Pavilion Slimline (s5503w) desktop PC. For whatever reason the hard drive was blanked out when I received it and upon installing Windows 7 64-bit (Ultimate Ed) I've had quite some time locating the proper drivers. Attempting to use the recommended drivers from HP's website resulted in a 9996 error, you don't meet the requirements. Proper recommended installer for that version of windows, but no luck. I've also tried installing the Ethernet and Audio drivers recommended by Nividia's website. A 15.49 package, but though it recognizes the video card it doesn't notice the onboard Ethernet or Audio. Neither of these devices is listed in device manager as far as I can tell either. No typical yellow exclamation mark stating that the driver is missing.

Any help or a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

We need tons more info.

First can you go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search)

Go to the windows log>application tab.

Look for critical errors (they have red in the left hand column) that say app hang, app crash, or anything relevant to the problem
When you find them note the event ID and source codes and relay them to us.

A:Cannot upgrade windows vista ultimate 64bit to windows 7 ultimate 64bit!!!

Run setup while in Windows and you can.

If you run Setup from within Windows:

You can upgrade Windows Vista or Windows 7 Build 7077 or later.
You cannot run x64 Setup on a system running an x86 build of Windows, or vice-versa.
You cannot upgrade Windows XP or any pre-7077 build of Windows 7 (unless you use the workaround I describe later in this post).
You can install Windows 7 on the same volume as an existing Windows version. (I describe the best way to accomplish this in #4.)
You cannot make any changes to the layout of a disk; you must use existing partitions, and Setup will not recognize unallocated space.
If you boot from the Windows 7 DVD:

You cannot upgrade an existing Windows version. Your only option is a custom install.
You can delete existing partitions, create new partitions, extend an existing disk partition to unallocated space, or designate a block of unallocated space as the setup location.
You can install Windows 7 on the same volume as an existing Windows version.

I had a activated version of Windows 7 pro 64 bit which got automatically approved for upgrade to Windows 10 pro 64 bit some months ago.

The upgrade to Windows 10 took place before the free upgrade deadline.

I had a boot issue with Windows 10 after I merged some unused partitions on the hard disk with the C: drive.
I re-installed Windows 7 pro 64 bit last week, after the free Windows 10 free upgrade deadline of 29th July 2016.

My question is, can I now still do a free upgrade to Windows 10 pro 64 bit version using a disk?

If this is possible, what is the process for upgrading using the disk?
I do not wish to do a clean install because I would then have to reinstall all of the data and other software.

Hi, just next to your post is mine, where on my new custom PC I found the Acceleration tab in Virtualbox greyed out.

I could not install Win 8 as a VM, and got an error about VT-X....... a setting which is under the Acceleration tab.

Like you, I found my UEFI offered no Virtualisation setting.. a dumbed down set of options.
The supplier immediately understood my problem, and said that Virtualisation was normally enabled on their PCs (on many in general it is not). So I sent mine back- they have another identical model where it's working.

What surprises me from your report is that you got as far as installing Win 10 as a VM if that was true in your case. If you also ran it, and the Acceleration tab is not greyed out, that suggests Virtualisation technologies are enabled on your PC. I'm not clear if you got that far.

On that basis looking for Hyper-V will not help (and it's not available in Home as you say).

I have the same problem with 64bit NVidia networkcontrollers.

Is this a known problem or am I doing something wrong?



System: Intel Core2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz, 8GB RAM, Geforce GTX260, Asus P5N-D (nForce 750ichipset)
Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit SP1 (OEM)

A:Unable to install 64bit NVidia drivers on Vista 64bit

I was just wondering if this could be just an installer problem.
The filesize of 182.06_geforce_winvista_64bit_english_whql is just 22kb.
I noticed on another site (64bit and x64) they have a download of the same driver that is a 100 MB.

Is anyone familiar with Can I safely download the NVidia drivers
from there?

And do I really need to install 64bit versions of the driver or can I just as well install the 32 bit version of the same driver (even though my OS is 64 bit) ???

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi every one,

i have this machine which is causing too much headache for me,

this machine was having Windows XP 64 Bit,
and it had a lot of BSOD crashes, then i just decided that it's the time to make the move to Windows 7 for this high performance machine, since i was not able to upgrade to Windows 7 because of some applications just working on Windows XP 64 Bit, but now there is a copy of it,

Any way i'm still having those BSOD crashes,
I have replaced the SSD 500GB hard drive with another regular hard drive with no results,
tried to remove and install nVidia Driver,
tried to install a different version of that driver with no results,
tried to remove McAfee AV and installed Kaspersky Internet security 2013 also no result,

now i have grabbed all the data using SF Tool, and i really hope that u can help me with that issue.

thank you

installed intel ac-3160 dual band + blue tooth in a Sony notebook system wont allow blue tooth to start.
also there is no interface available to connect any hardware to it, i know it has something to do with some Vaio software on the system.
it allows me to use dual band mode and it shows that blue tooth is present but disables it claiming interference with 2.4 GHz band. 
now i have had blue tooth dongles installed working while using 2.4 GHz band before with no issues, so i don't get the issue now.
any input would be appreciated. 
thankx Karl K

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

Windows 8 was able to install all my Function Keys so I'm going to assume this will be the case for others. Good luck

So last night I started the Win 7 Pro 64 bit "upgrade" on my vista 64 bit business OS.

Before doing this on my home machine - I tested first at work on a VM of vista 32bit business - upgrade to win 7 32 bit pro.... took about 30 min. Done. Of course thats a vanilla install too.

I dont have a lot on my PC at home... a handful of programs at most. Going on 19 HOURS later, it is still at the "transferring files, settings and programs (62%) portion of the upgrade and still shows activity happening.

Any ideas on what is taking this so long to do? Suggestions on if I should just scrap this upgrade install ?

Hello everyone,

I don't know if this was asked before, please forgive me if this is just a repeat. I am new in the forum.

Does 64bit machines (Dual Processors or Quad etc) need a 64bit Vista to maximize its capabilities? I noticed that new PCs and Laptops shipped today have pre-installed Vista but 32bit OS . . . why is this? Or does it really matter? Please explain this puzzling mystery to a non-techie like me.

Thanks guys.

I like Windows 95, 98, XP and Vista!!!!!

A:Does 64bit machines (Dual Processors) need a 64bit Vista?

Hello Rockrus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Yes, you get the most out of your 64 bit machine by using a 64 bit OS with it. It will not hurt anything to use a 32 bit OS though.

This article may be an interesting read for you to help explain all of the differences between 32 bit and 64 bit.

Hope this helps,

A:MathType add-in not working for 64bit MS Office 2010 64bit

We at Design Science are working on 64-bit office compatibility for MathType. However, the current version is not recommended for use with Office 2010. More importantly, Microsoft doesn't even recommend installing 64-bit Office, even on 64-bit Windows, unless you really, really need it. See 64-bit editions of Office 2010.

I've just updated my flash version on Firefox ... but what's running now is Adobe Flash 11.9.r900 (32 bit). I've never noticed before but shouldn't I be running a 64bit version? If so, where do I find one? When installing the new version, Adobe recognised that I was running Windows 64bit.
Thanks ..

A:64bit system ... do i need 64bit adobe flash version???

Hello, Yes
When you download Flash Player installer using 64-bit Internet Explorer, you download the 64-bit Flash Player installer. It installs Flash Player on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Internet Explorer if both are present.Download Adobe Flash Player

I recently installed the latest version of the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack (v9.10.32T) for one of my desired applications to properly function. However, connecting my Bluetooth headphones through Toshiba's bluetooth manager does not seem to support the media buttons on the headset. These include Play/Pause and seek buttons. Before the Bluetooth stack, when I used my default bluetooth driver for connection, these controls had worked fine.

Also, there does not seem to be a specific setting to fix this in the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack Options.
How would I go about getting these controls back?

I just set up win 8 on my computer and was going thru the process of connecting my bluetooth mouse and my bluetooth keyboard. My mouse connected automatically, no problems. When I went to connect my keyboard I got the usual prompt asking you to enter the code, but the code was not accepted no matter how many times I tried. I know for a fact that this keyboard works, because it works fine on my Win 7 OS on the same computer. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated

One of my friend in India purchased "HCL ME Sync 1.0 (U3) Tablet (WiFi, 3G via Dongle) by HCL" online . It says in many places that it supports Bluetooth but when I saw this I couldn't find any option for the bluetooth and don't know how to turn it on. Is there any one who has purchased it and help me out to turn the bluetooth on or how can we transfer files with some other bluetooth device. Even I couldn't find much good information on internet.

A:Hcl Me U3 tablet says file sharing with Bluetooth but don't know how to turn on the bluetooth ?

I don't see it listed in the spec sheet, nor the user guide.

On both of my android 4.2 devices, Bluetooth is listed after Wi-fi in Settings. I would think it's the same w/ android 4.1. It's possible the tablet doesn't have bluetooth.
