Preferred Solution: CPU change

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.)

Are you doing a clean and thorough uninstall / re-install of graphic drivers? If done incorrectly it can create all sorts of graphical anomalies.

Hi firstly this is my first post so i hope i'm doing this right I have a win computer which i suspect is infected by some kind of malware virus The thing is that the computer name and local network name has changed from my deafault name to Aorka unfortunately i can't find anything about this specific name on the internet since i also have to login to user acc on computer boot while this has been automatic before Possible infection if likely when restoring mbam clean since i was unable to launch either tuneup utilities or adobe reader after cleanup netbios change Suspecting change (and name "9Aorka5") infection, computer altough infection from pdf-file is also possible but unlikely since files were Suspecting infection, computer name change (and netbios change "9Aorka5") scanned with avg without any warnings Windows defender was Suspecting infection, computer name change (and netbios change "9Aorka5") also unactive noticed when computer name was already changed upon activating defender and running full scan no threats was found either Full scan using avg free is finished without any threats and full mbam scan in safemode without Suspecting infection, computer name change (and netbios change "9Aorka5") network is currently ungoing i've never seen this kind of problem before so i need help Once again i'm new to the forum and have tried to supply all i've tried and figured out so far and thank you so much in advance

A:Suspecting infection, computer name change (and netbios change "9Aorka5")

once your scan is done with Mbam, please post the log then perform the following:Please download TDSSKiller exe version to your desktop.Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.Click on Change Parameters and click Detect TDLFS File System.    Click the Start Scan button.    Do not use the computer during the scan    If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.    If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.    Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.    Note: If Cure is not an option, Skip instead, do not choose Delete unless instructed.    A TDSSKiller text file would be saved in Local Disk C.    Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.

Hi everyone thanks for looking Im running into a particular problem that I cant seem to find the reasons or the settings I watch HBO GO i have a valid subscription on my Windows Home laptop and use an HDMI cable to connect my TV Scenerio If I leave the close the lid power option on hibernate I must leave the laptop open and when I connect the HDMI the TV it becomes my monitor and I view as the monitor and watch anything full screen no problem Scenerio I change the power option on the lid close to quot External when settings change Power change? display options do nothing quot When the HDMI cable is hooked up if the laptop is open it uses the laptop display External display settings change when Power options change? if its closed it displays through the HDMI TV This is perfect and exactly what I want I can watch as the monitor no problem HOWEVER if I choose full screen I get gray borders and the quot Full Screen quot is not full and just centered I can not for the life of me figure out why and Im going crazy Does anyone know why the power option would have an effect on this and what settings I could change Many Thanks in Advance Max nbsp

A:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

hello, i have a 9800gt that gives a very low fps on crysis, i went to the shop from where i purchased it and they said that you need to change your power supply, currently its 230watt, i was thinking that i should replace my card with another one as mine does not have a six pin supplementary power connector. so my question is that should i change my psu first or should i switch my card first?

A:Should i change my power supply or should i change my graphics card?

your running a 9800gt on a 230W PSU!? not sure how your doing that without it shutting down as soon as you start a game. the 9800gt needs a 450W psu with 24A on the 12v rail (s). change the PSU. you are fortunate that you haven't overstressed the 230W psu and destroyed the rest of the system.

Trying to set up a FP monitor, and in the process I tried changing the bios setting from onboard AGP (flat panel wasn't working with this, had to add another video adapter card) to PCI, thinking I could change it back if ineffective. But now my display on the monitor that WAS working is black, so I can't undo my mistake.

How to undo damage??

A:bios change, now can't view monitor to change back

If you remove the battery on the mothernoard
for a minute or two, the BIOS loses it's
current settings and goes back to the defaults
that will work on any system. You'll have to

Change the key used to wake up your machine in the system BIOS setup. You often have a choice of space-bar or mouse-click, but choosing space-bar on my machine allows any key to work. Look under "Wake on..." settings.

Or, give details of your machine if you are unable to find it.

Hi. When I start up my computer,it says "protected by Avast".Its possible that this was there after I first instaled avast a few days after buying and using my computer.This computer had nortons internet security 2012 ipre installed when I bought it in June 2012.

I added these after I bought it:
1))avg free standalone linkscanner
2)avast free anti virus.

I let nortons run out then installed zonealarm free firewall antivirus.
I also had to uninstall avast back then too.

I decided that I wanted to go back to Nortons/avg linkscanner/avast so I uninstalled zonealarm (even though it was quite good-just preferred nortons)then installed nortons then avg linkscanner and tried to reinstall avast.I just left it with nortons and avast.

Can someone give me step by step instructions to remove "protected by avast"?


Have a Merry Christmas!

A:Change the message on start up.How do you change it?

Welcome to Seven Forums Danv12. You should run only one AV program at a time, either Avast or Norton. Use the removal tool for whichever you do not use:

Norton Removal Tool

Avast! Uninstall Utility

To disable the Avast message at boot:

Open Avast> Click on Settings at top right> Basic tab> Appearance> Uncheck Show welcome message on Windows boot screen (Windows 7 only)> OK

That should do it

option to change users.
When I went in and said Net User Admin no - thinking if I disabled admin user it would go back to the old log in -  there was no log in available at all.

A:How To change My RAM From DDR-2 To DDR-3 ?


DDR3 is different physically from DDR2 - it would not plug into your motherboard.
If your motherboard is designed for DDR2 RAM then you must stick with DDR2.

Hi all,

Probably a daft question here, but I need to "completely wipe" an old 2TB HDD that was previous an MBR for Win7. I'm now looking to use it in a DVR for CCTV (to replace a fried HDD) but it can't be an MBR or GPT.

I checked the old drive first and it's "status" was 'Not Initialized'
It's "partition Style" was 'Not Applicable'.

So while I know how to change an MBR to a GPT etc. via 'Disk Management', how can I change a completely formatted MBR to "Not Initialized"??

Would appreciate any insight. Many thanks.

A:Change MBR on HDD to...

Does the DVR need it to be as RAW? Formatting it in some way will make it either GPT or MBR for partition table.

You can use something like a GParted LiveCD and delete all partitions so it's all unallocated space, and then delete the partition table so it's RAW.

Hey guys,
Is it possible to replace a motherboard and CPU... and keep my system drive with Win xp Pro service pk2 on it... will it still function?

I have a computor in my music studio with 2 harddrives... I'm hopiong to upgrade the motherboard and cpu...but dont want to lose all the programs i have running...

thanks for advice,

Darren M.

A:HELP can i change

This is possible to do. I just replaced a motherboard (but not CPU; and a PSU) on a client's computer. XP just loaded the necessary default drivers. Then I used the CD that came with the new motherboard to install the proper ones. The only issue I can foresee is if XP decides you have to reactivate your copy. Not a big problem. If that happens, just call Microsoft and let them know what is going on. They should unlock your activation again (only do this if you get a big hassle about having to reactivate your copy; I didn't have that problem on my client's computer).

The only other problem I can foresee is if you select a motherboard and CPU that don't work with your other hardware. Check compatibility for everything before buying a new mobo and CPU just because they will likely work with XP without a complete reformat and reinstall of the OS.

Hello Folks:

I recently went from WEP to WPA on my small home network. Everything seems to work well and I can see (WPA) listed on my network when I "view available wireless networks". I don't really understand what makes WPA so much better - but clearly based on the threads in here it is. My question is - is it necessary to routinely change the passkey if you have WPA enabled? It isn't much trouble to change it but if there is a feature in WPA that makes this unnessesary I won't bother. Thanks for your help. Great forum!!

A:Change Key on WPA??

Not really. As long as you have a good key, letters and numbers, the more the better, you're quite secure. Obviously, it's never a bad idea to occasionally change the key or password for any secured resource.

A:Change log in

The hard way (DIY):

Follow the procedure below to change the Windows 7 logon screen.
1. Download the registry file from here. Extract the file and double-click on the file to enable this feature (Alternative method: right-click, select Merge).

2. Now, head over to the following folder:
C:\Windows\System32\oobe (“C” is your Windows Seven Installation drive)

3. Here, create a new folder named Info. Again, create a new folder inside the Info folder and rename it as backgrounds.

4. Copy your favorite image file to this folder and rename it as backgroundDefault. Note that the image must be in JPG format and the size should be less than 256 KB.

5. You are done. Reboot your system and see the change.
The following files (sorted by width-to-height ratio) are supported in C:\Windows\System32\oobe\Info\Backgrounds folder:
* backgroundDefault.jpg
* background768?1280.jpg (0.6)
* background900?1440.jpg (0.625)
* background960?1280.jpg (0.75)
* background1024?1280.jpg (0.8)
* background1280?1024.jpg (1.25)

I'm running Windows 7 HP 64 bit and I have IE 9 installed. I think the IE 9 version is the 32 bit one because the executable is iexplore.exe *32 I am having some problems with IE9 at present - the task hangs around after I close the window and prevents me clicking on anything on the desktop until I cancel the various iexplore.exe taks via task manager. However each time I go to the Windows site to download the 64 bit version and execute the file I get a message saying it will not install because I am running a later version of IE9. When I compare the versions of what I have and what I am trying to get they are the same, although I believe I am running the 32 bit version (the About help gives no indication I am running 64 bit). Can anyone tell me whether I am running the 64 bit version, and if not how I can install it please?

On 64bit computers, 64bit IE9 is installed with 32bit. Type "Internet Explorer" without quotes into your start menu search and you should see it.

vstrimaitis, welcome to the Seven forums.

First question is, what speeds does your router support? If it doesn't support N speeds or if it does and isn't configured at that speed, then there is nothing to change in Windows or the adapters settings; it needs to be either changed in the router or a new router bought that supports N speeds.

A:Should I change my SSD?

The one thing I can think of is the drive cable itself.
Make sure it's one rated for sata II or III depending on which the drive is.
I'm assuming you've already checked to ensure there are no firmware updates for that drive model.

I was told it was possible to install Vista Home Premium from any DVD, without entering the product key. When done I could open computer properties, click option to change product key and use the one on the COA sticker on my laptop. Original Windows was Vista Home Premium.

A:Key Change

I guess that I have to ask...why not just enter the appropriate key...when doing the install?

The key is tied to the install on that's not tied to media.

As to "any", I would say that's incorrect, since many users may not really have a genuine MS Vista DVD, but rather have restore/recovery DVDs. Such do not equate to MS Genuine Vista DVDs.

Would appreciate your input

Download this and run it, use it to upgrade. This is a clean install which will delete all files so do a backup.

Hi i know this might sound a bit random but does anyone know how i can change the

automatically when i am typing. I am running microsoft office 2007 and i know this changes automatically in older versions of office.

Any help is much appriciated,

Regards Paul

A:How do i change the ' i ' to a ' I ' ?

In Office 2010 it's under File, then Options (left column), Proofing. There's an "Auto Correct Options" button there, on the autocorrect tab at the bottom is the list of things it auto-corrects. You can add/change/delete to your liking.

My KIS is due for renewal in a couple of days, but this time I thought I might give Microsoft Security Essentials a go, along with the Vista firewall(?)

I know that KIS will have to be uninstalled, but I just wondered whether it would be possible to temporarily disable it just long enough to find out whether MSE is problem-free?

My reasoning being that if KIS is not running, but still technically available, it would be quick and easy to reinstate it if, for any reason, MSE didn't suit.

Could that work? Or does KIS really need to be completely uninstalled first please?

Thank you for looking

A:A change of AV

You can disable KIS by right clicking > pause protection > pause (until user demand)... however I suspect there will still be some bits running in the background. However, it would be possible to uninstall KIS, but leave the config data intact - there's an option to do this

I've had good experience with MSE (not on my main PC, but on others that I've set up) - I'd recommend it .

Hello everyone is there a way to change the icon of the explorer in the taskbar like the one in the image, next is the image of what i'm talking about

and some other thing is there a way to put the window live msn with this glass style?


A:This can be change?

Hi raul, I can help you in changing explorer icon .
First , Browse to C:\Windows\Explorer.
Next,, right click on it, Select properties (at the bottom of the context menu). The Exlorer Properties window will appear.

In the window, click on the icons tab, click on change icon button, browse to the location where is the icon sought to be replaced with is located, select it and apply it.

But my suggestion to you that it is wise to have a Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup before entering such customizations so that in need we can easily get our things back.

Sorry pal I can't help you in WLM issue

Changed UAC to lowest setting (single user).

1. Can't get an elevated command prompt
(shortcut properties are correct, SFC showed no violations, no malware)

2. UAC does not respond when logged in as USER

3. No manage UAC option in a different account when running as Admin.

4. Several program will not run that were fine before.

5. Can't open system restore.

6. Shouldn't play when all is well.

A:Can't Change UAC

Best practice,...use next to last, not turn off completely.
