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.)

So recently I got an error message from Norton called 3048, 3. I followed it to the download for Norton Power Eraser, which told me to restart my computer. I did. It ran and found nothing. The message popped up twice more. Then it stopped. I've run full scans on both Norton Internet Security 2012 and MBAM, and they have found nothing. I have tried to bootup in safe mode twice, but whenever I get to bootup menu I can't do anything. The arrow won't, the escape key won't work, even the enter key doesn't work. They all work fine in normal mode. I'm working with Windows 7 by the way on an HP laptop. Thanks for your help in advance.

I have RA2 installed but have to alt tab out and back in again to see any buttons. If I want to go to the internet on RA2 I have to click where I know the button is, alt tab out, go back into RA2 and it will appear. Almost like I need to refresh the screen by alt tab'ing out.

Tried both CD and MP install from the official RA2 XWIS servers. Compatibility tried, and running as admin.

I'm using any application and suddenly the File button in the Menu bar is highlighted for a blink, sometimes a fast series of blinks, then it happens again and again. Now all the menu bar buttons are also highlighted, yet they're pressed! It's very annoying, because I loose control of anything I'm doing. I have to press scape to stop the button highlighting. Could this be a virus, or just a bug? Please help!

A:Menu bar buttons keep being highlighted!

Hello Ocetalo,

Whenever the ALT key is pressed this happens by default to the Menu bar in the current active window as part of a keyboard shortcut. For example, press Alt+F to open the File menu. You can also press ALT+(a underlined letter on menu) to open that menu item.

Hope this helps,

Basically the power button, lock button and the little arrow button (which you can barely see) are a bit bigger than usual, so it's kinda frustrating to shut the PC down. It fixed itself for a moment when I got a new GPU but soon it became like this again. Is there a way to fix it?

I haven't checked into a replacement of Default Programs, but you should be able to add Programs and Features shortcut to the start menu. There are variations of the command, but I use this one from a context menu and the Run box

I click deny, which is actually just a black square but know the position of the deny button, but it continues to pop up ever 15-20 seconds or so.

I can get to my task manger but it is essentially a black box.

Hi. I've got a computer (custom made) with XP installed. I'm posting from an Ubuntu laptop. I've got AVG and adaware, both up to date. I have the latest XP service pack.

My problem is that when I go to turn on my computer, it will boot through the user menu and load into windows with my desktop image showing, but no icons/start menu shows up.

I can do Control/Alt/Delete to bring up the task manager. I've tried typing explorer.exe, but there is just quick flash of something at the bottom of the screen and then nothing.

Does anyone have an idea of what might be wrong with my computer?

Hello all,

The problem is that those buttons pulled out through Tools/Customize/Commands tab onto the Menu Bar won't stay after she logged out at end of the day. I've tried to log on as Administrator to do all that setting with hope that they'll apply for all user profiles and stay for good but that doesn't work.

Save Desktop Icon Layout
Restore Desktop Icon Layout

How can I remove the buttons and the application they run?

A:Desktop mouse right click popup menu - remove buttons?

keepplugging, It looks like you may have installed Icon Restore at one time as it puts those 2 items in the desktop right click context menu. Check out the link below which also has a "Uinstall Icon Restore" tool at the bottom of the page which you can download and run. I'd create a new System Restore Point prior to running it.

My wife's computer (Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop running XP) recently started doing something very weird... Gradually, Outlook (2000) has been adding extra menu buttons after the "Help" button. They all say "Adobe Pdf".

There probably 75 or 100 of these buttons now, so that the top menu bar takes up 25% of the Outlook window.

Only the last button added (bottom) is functional, the rest don't do anything.

I am inclined to reload Acrobat and Office, but this issue is so weird that I wanted to post it first.

Thanks in advance,

A:Can't Restore, Some Buttons And .exe's Just Won't Work

If possible, try a free online scan at this URL: will scan for malware, clean your registry, delete your Temp files, and defrag your hard drive.If not, then I'd download an antivirus program and it's updates from the web, put it on a CD and transfer it to the laptop. AVG is a good free one: you ensure that it's clean, then there'll be several ways to fix it. The easiest, non-technical way (IMO) would be to use the CD's that came with the HP to perform a non-destructive repair of the operating system.

On some web sites I visit, some of the (what I call) hotspot butons don't seem to work.
What I mean by those are the buttons you click on on the screen to take you to another page - such as on a hotel booking page. eg Enter details, click on the "next" button........but it's just like there's no command behind it. Some of the other similar buttons on the same screen do work.

Tried on another computer, and they do work !!

Both computers fairly new and Vista Home Premium.

Is it something to do with Javascript (whatever that is) ?

A:Hotspot buttons sometimes don't work

It could be... and it could also have to do with IE7's 'phishing filter', or pop-up blocker (which is a good thing).

My laptop is a Packard Bell Easynote TS13HR, but it has recently had an acer motherboard installed(could this be the problem?). I've come to notice when i hold Fn and and press an F key recently it hasn't worked, or it has had an effect from what it is supposed to. Also there are some custom buttons that have no effect at all ( volume up, volume down, volume mute etc. )

for example:
Fn + F3 is supposed to turn my wireless off, but it actually puts my laptop to sleep
Fn + F5 is supposed to turn my display off, but it switches to an external display.
Fn + F6 is supposed to turn my touchpad off, but it turns my display off.

any ideas on how to fix this are greatly appreciated.

A:Fn + F# buttons dont work

i guess having a motherboard in my laptop other than the original is what is causing this, is there any way to change what the fn and f buttons do, or do i need to put the right motherboard in my system?

Hi Paul,  Your monitor is covered by warranty for one year if you purchased it new.  Perhaps you should contact HP support.  HP's support number is 800-474-6836 or 800-HPINVENT or online here. Try a monitor reset. Unplug the monitor?s power cord and hold down the monitor?s power button for 30-60 seconds. Plug the monitor back in and power it up.

The buttons don't work, and the "next" button is locked and remains bright when I shut down the computer.

Plus, I believe this is preventing the sound to get from the notebook to the tv, although the image is fine.

I phoned up the support people, they said that they want me to do a full system recovery, (i can not do this...)

My problem is, I use the touchpad/USB mouse on and off, depending where i am.

Last night i was at my desk, and I plugged in my mouse, When i moved to somewhere comfortable, I unplugged my mouse, and now my touchpad's buttons (left and right) dont work, well they do, but they work as the scroll button (open things in tabs ect)

What can i do to fix this problem? I was told that i need to do a full system recovery to see if its a hardware problem. This has never happened before.

This is a laptop keyboard, the keys L N and K didnt work before. So i assume it was a bad keyboard, i order a online keyboard and now this one the keys ZX 1 dont work. So is this a keyboard hardware issue? Did i just get another bad one ? Should i get another keyboard and retry or can something else cause keys to not work

A:Keyboard buttons dont work


Well, not sure I can help other than to say that like you I would have assumed that the damage was confined entirely to the KB and replacing it should have gone smoothly (Not like you spilled a coke or something that would have leaked al over internally).

Probably the think to do is return the new one as defective and ask for another... If that also doesn't work then it would almost have to be the computer itself...

Did the contamination get anywhere near the KB cable connector?

Using Access 2010. Designed a form containing 3 command buttons that open either a form or report. One weeee problem: the buttons don't work/don't do anything. The VBA is there, but it doesn't execute.

DB was imported from one designed in Access 2000, and I kept the format .mdb (did not convert to .accdb because client that uses it has both Office 2003 and Office 2010 in their shop, so dB has to be readable by all). Does that have anything to do with the command buttons doing nothing?

So thanks to some type of error in Vista, I have these strange menu problems. Firefox menu's work just fine, but the normal right click menu's and menu's under programs do not show up correctly. For some reason, the menu choices are invisible, a clear box unless hovered over.
Not sure why. I have 3 attacked images, They are 3 jpg's, screen captures that show what they look like.
I'd really appreciate knowing what I've done to cause this and what I can do to solve this issue.

EDIT: Oh, I feel like I should say to ignore the site I'm on. I am by no means I troll, I just seem to have this error that doesn't fade for some reason.

Hi all, I'm having trouble with the monitor buttons on my Ideacenter A530. All of the buttons on the bottom of the monitor light up randomly during PC use (normally only a few are lit such as the power on the bottom left and the wireless one). The brightness is then toggled to either the lowest or highest setting on its own and doesn't let you adjust it back. Example: the brightness indicator on the top right gets stuck on the lowest brightness and although I drag the brightness back up, it goes down constantly until I do a cold restart. I don't think this has to do with automatic screen brightness or the ambient light sensor because that is disabled. Any ideas? My hunch is a hardware problem... Thanks

Hey Guys

I just recently started having a problem with some of the buttons on the File Explorer ribbon, basically when I click the New Folder button nothing happens. Same thing happens when I right click on the Windows Key to access the context menu.

Has anyone had this problem before?

Any help would be much appreciated

*UPDATE* on the context menu some functions work like run and shutdown but not control panel and others

A:File Explorer - Some ribbon buttons do not work?

I would search on *.msc

Those are the files for computer management,services etc..

On the new folder thing I would suspect registry corruption. The first thing to try would be running

Hi, my mouse model is a Logitech Marathon M750 (Wireless).

I just got this mouse along with a keyboard in a mouse-keyboard combo I got off Amazon. The keyboard works great, completely functional, but the mouse, not as much.

The mouse's left click, right click, middle click, scrolling, etc., all work perfectly, but oddly, the cursor is not moving despite my attempts to move it. My previous mouse I had was also by Logitech, a M135/M125 (also wireless), with a fully functional cursor ability and button ability. I'm actually using that M135/M235 to post this.

This is the first forum post I have posted anywhere on tech support, because usually I get the problems figured out, but this has me baffled. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

A:Mouse cursor not moving, but the buttons work

Sounds like the mouse is faulty. If the buttons are working, you should be able to move the cursor as well.

About a week ago, my M800 laptop's multimedia buttons stopped working. They won't light up either. I've tried the Added Value Package fix and that doesn't seem to want to work for me. I downloaded TAVP but nothing happened.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make the buttons work again? Thanks. I'm running on a 32 bit OS (if you need to know).

A:Portege M800 - Multimedia buttons won't work

Hi l_vasic,

Have you checked the BIOS? As far as I know there you can also enable or disable these illumination buttons. It must be enabled?

Otherwise it would be interesting to know which OS you are using.
Did you download Value Added Package for Portege M800?

all i can do is alt f4...but the most problematic thing about is it that i cannot expand my internet browser!!! argh im stuck!!

Thanks in advance

A:Minimize/maximize/close buttons will not work!!!

Hello ghostlyogre,
Some system specs would help, but for now try this.
If you are using an NVidia card, disable NView, or use selective disable.
Try reverting to Classic style folders and see if that does it.
Have you used any software to alter your icons or appearance of windows ?, if you have do a system restore to before that point.
Hope one of these nails it for you.
Fill in your specs and post your results, good luck.

Hi to everyone... i had update my Satellite to Windows 8 and i followed the instruction guide.
After the update the fn-keys don't work correctly:

I can't adjust brightness dislay
I can't use the multimedia shortcut
I can't turn on/off the volume
I can't switch on/off bluetooth wifi, but only turn on/off from airplane-mode


A:Satellite L855 - FN buttons don't work after Win 8 update


Did you install the Win 8 upgrade assistant?
The Win 8 upgrade assistant helps you to get all Win 8 drivers.

Generally speaking the FN buttons are controlled by VAP (value added package)

> I can't switch on/off Bluetooth Wi-Fi, but only turn on/off from airplane-mode
The air plane mode disables the BT and WLan as well? this is how it works in Win 8

I reinstalled Windows 7 and now the FN buttons don?t work. I have installed the newest version of VAP, the flash card utility is running. So I have no idea.
Did I forget to install something?

Or is there a tool who installs all drivers for my Qosmio x300 in one piece?

A:Qosmio x300 and Win7 - FN buttons donít work


Normally it?s enough if you install Value Added Package and Flash Cards Support Utility to use the FN keys. But make sure that both tools are released for Windows 7 and not for old Vista.

As far as I know if you search for Qosmio X300 on the Toshiba page you will only find VAP for Windows 7. The Flash Cards Support Utility is an older version. I would recommend install a newer version, for example search for Satellite L550. There you can find Flash Cards Support Utility for Windows 7, it?s versionít-work

I remember getting such a msg from HP one time. I was stubborn and got hold of another person at HP who pointed me to the info I needed. Trouble is your inquiry gets handled by a Tier 1 newbee who doesn't know up from down and only has a script of answers to questions. Hang in there.

Also, try out the WIN + X combo You will possibly find what you are looking for.
The WIN key is that one with the funny looking wavy flag on it.

Running Win XP the FN buttons are controlled by Common Modules.
As far as I know the Power Saver is not necessary to get the Fn button working!
So install the Common Modules and test the Fn buttons!

We have recently performed a fresh install of Windows 7 x64 on a Toshiba Tecra A10.
The OS has picked up most drivers, we had to install drivers for the card reader ourselves.

Our problem is that the touchpad and buttons do not work at all.
The driver shows in Device Manager as being properly installed, but that's all. I have even installed the Alps Control Panel (Vista x64) which runs okay.
Have tried the "Touch pad and stick are automatically invalidated" settings when using an external USB mouse, all to no avail.

The hardware was working perfectly okay with Windows 7 32 Bit installed.

Is there a fix here?

A:Tecra A10 - Touchpad and buttons do not work on Windows 7 x64


Maybe it?s just a driver issue? I have checked the available downloads for Tecra A10 on Toshiba page and for Windows 7 32bit there is a newer driver available, for Windows 7 64bit not (no driver). So you must use the Vista 64bit driver?

What you can do is testing the touchpad driver for Tecra A11. There is a newer version for Windows 7 64bit from Alps Electric so the correct one. Touchpad driver is not system related so I?m pretty sure it also works on your model.

Have a look on Toshiba website for Tecra A11 driver: > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Two days ago I uninstalled a codec pack while I was logged in as another user. Since then the buttons on the front of my laptop that control my volume don't work. They don't light up and are unresponsive. I know its a small thing, but I've grown reliant on those buttons and I'd like them to work again. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Not the function+F1 sorta quick launch, but the little buttons at the top of the laptop

You could probably just load the utility that lets you use the buttons. What is the exact make and model of your laptop? What OS are you using?

In my Excel 2010 file there are three sheets. I can navigate between them by clicking on the sheets on the bottom left hand side, next to Sheet tab scroll buttons.

But I can't use "Sheet tab scroll buttons" because when clicking on them they don't do anything. I don't know what is the problem.

Is there anyone who knows the reason please?

A:Sheet tab scroll buttons don't work on Excel 2010

You talking about these in the red box?

Looks like it depends on whether the horizontal scroll bar is hiding the tabs or not. In the 1st pic, all the tabs are visible. Clicking on the arrows did nothing. Whereas in the 2nd pic, only the 1st tab is visible, clicking on the arrows will move you to the previous/next tab.
