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.)

I have a lap top computer that is set up to my home computer. It used to be able to print but it all of a sudden stopped printing and the error message says... windows cannot printy due to a problem with the current printer setup. Try one of the following *check the printer by priniting a test page from windows (which when tried it comes up with this error message...printer properties cannot be displayed. The prin spooler is not running)
*make sure the printer is turned on * reinstall the printer driver (again when this was done the print spooler not running came up)

I have been told it a possible print spooler corruption, becasue when you go to the area where you can stop and start print spooler it is already on and says it is started.

HELP Please I need this for my school work

Did you try restarting it anyway under Control Panel, Administrative Tools, then Services and Print Spooler. My setup requires this about once per year.

My dads H.P.printer, All in one PSC 1350 prints a test page every time he turns the printer off and on. It wastes so much color ink. I've searched all over the properties and cant see where there is a place to stop the test page. Other than leaving the printer on, is there a way to stop the test page from being printed? He only uses the printer once in a while, thats why he turns it off when he's not using it.

Hi All
Can some one tell me a great software that will create a diskette or on cd itself, run a diagnostic test on my pc that will show me what may be going wrong on mmy computer???

Is there a software that will refresh memory when a pc has been sitting idle for a long time???

Is there a way I can determine how much memory an application can use instead of it, using what it wants???

When I ran the diagnostic test on my Dell laptop, one of the parts failed.

DST Short Status Test
Unit 4: Drive Self Test Failed - Status Byte: 70

So this basically means that something is wrong with my hard drive? It seems to be working fine, though. The only thing is that it gets really hot, could that be it?

Depends on the make/model of your drive. Western Digital has an excellent little utility to check THEIR drives. Do you know what kind of drive you have? You may need to open the computer and have a look on the drive. Then go to the drive's manufacture's web site and see if anything is offered.

Am running on a Gateway with Windows 98SE. Picked up a Kodak digital camera with docking bay. Use Kodak Picture software for transferring from camera to the PC. Had been working fine until...

I disconnected the docking bay from my PC, (USB port) as I needed to use my scanner for a few days. Now, after I replace the scanner with the Kodak docking bay my pics will not transfer.

Of course now I wonder if this is a software or hardware issue. My question is: Is there a way for me to run a diagnostic that will tell me if the PC recognizes the Kodak docking bay? My thinking is that the software is not able to "see" the bay, therefore ignoring it.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I am helping a friend try to regain his touch screen capabilities.  He seems to think that the windows 10 upgrade stopped it working.  I have run the Hardware Diagnostic Test (F2 on boot) and run the component check for touch screen.  There is no response to touching the screen.   This test is UEFI which I presume runs before any OS is loaded.  The display works fine otherwise.  Is there a way to know if this is a motherboard problem?  I can't find anything in the BIOS that relates to touch screen, and I can't get a log report for the diagnostic test because I can't start the test ... it just times out and the log says cancelled.  Is there a separate connector from display to motherboard for touch screen that may have come loose?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I tried ppowering up with F2 to run the component -> optical drive diagnostics but it just akss for a disk even though known good disks are in in the drive. I assume the drive is toast, but I am looking for forum feedback before getting a new one. Bummer since the warranty jsut expired.

A:Hdd Diagnostic Found Errors, Xp Won't Startup

I'd suggest backing up your data immediately. The Ultimate Boot CD should have tools to either burn a CD/DVD for backup or USB support so you can backup to an external drive.Once that's done, I'd suggest using a tool such as HDD Regenerator (~$60 US) or SpinRite (~$90 US)A less expensive alternative would be to use the low level format option with the Samsung utility (more info here: )Sometimes when a drive starts spitting errors out you can fix it with a tool like the above - other times the errors will keep recurring and you'll have to replace the drive. Until you figure out which case is yours, you stand the risk of losing data each time that you use that drive - so it's your call if you want to keep trying or go with a new drive. Should you decide to stay with the old drive, I'd suggest running the Samsung Hard Drive test periodically so you can catch any further errors in the early stages.

I had been experience weird crashing errors in world of warcraft and narrowed it down to memory problems. The memory is old and not great memory so I downlaod windows memory diagnostic and got these errors...

Test Name Cache # of errors
additional information...
Slot A0 - 141 errors
Slot A1 - 312 errors

Thus both my memory sticks must have errors - the errors werent all in one slot.
Is this is enough to conclude both my memory sticks are bad and need replacing , or do i need to use a more advanced memory test like memtest or something (is that more advanced?) Is there any way to fix these errors and isolate the corrupt addresses from being used in the memory?

Hi pippin33,
I suggest that you contact HP support for guidance on a full system restore\recovery. Find your specific model version of the DV6 and locate this page:
Start-up and shutdown should happen normally, especially with a new computer. (Less than 45 seconds startup, typically faster)
They pulled the "create your own or order system recovery disk" routine, so you are left with the recovery partition method.
If you have the Windows 7 installation disk, boot from it, and select repair the system.
Quite possibly, there is a BIOS and\or multiple driver updates. Let HP guide you on that before diving in on your own.

I have a hp computer connected to a wireless linsky router and printer server. The computer starts printing for a while then it stops. When I look in my print jobs it shows the info is waiting to be printed and sometimes it says printer paused. The only way I can get it to print the jobs listed is to restart my computer and it automatically prints all the jobs. Also, if I go in to cancel the jobs it will not print anything until I restart.

A:Network printer stops printing/ or says printer pause

How are you connected? By what sort of network and what is the device in the printer to which you plug the network card.
This is fairly common in our area with those using Belkin Wireless.
But we find that most clients are not properly connecting everything in the network... using the Microsoft and HP network troubleshooting usually cures the problem.

I recently changed my ink cartridges, and every time I turn on my printer,it prints a test page. Does anyone know how to stop this?

A:Solved: HP PSC 1317 won't stop printing test pages.

Take the test page ( also called : alighnment page ) that always prints when you switch on the printer and place it face down in the scanner.

Then press the scan button on the printer itself.
(this is the button at the bottom of all the buttons on the printer/scanner.)

Make sure that the printer scans the test page.
( sometimes you press the butoon and it doesn't scan )
( it makes a scanning noise when scanning succesfully )
This should stop printing the test page ( alignment page )

Anyway, I had to clean ink head, even though I periodically do it anyway. Yes I know that it is recommended in the tech community. Then print test page, which came out fine. However, I accidentally left the color enable. So turned it off. Printed another test page. The color came out, you where the Windows Logo is on the corner.

Computer Specs: Lenovo V570 Windows 7.

Click Start > Settings > Printers and Faxes.
Left click on Laser to highlight.
Click File > Printing Preferences.
Click on the Color tab.
Click on the circle by Grayscale to move the bullet to that selection.
Click Apply and OK.

to switch from "colour" printing to "black".

So, "unclick" the 'Grayscale' setting.

what about burn test software

A:what is best software to physicaly test all hardware for errors

Im not sure what you are looking for. Are you looking for a benchmarking program or are you looking for a maintenance software. Or do you have any problems where it might cause BSODs and you want to see what component is failing. As you might have guessed there is no simple answer to this question no matter how you look at it. But in order to be able to answer your question of need i first need to know what you are looking for exactly.

Sounds to me like you actually want a software that somehow scans your hardware for problems. To be honest there are no programs out there that straight of the bat does that for you and are actually accurate. If i remember right that doctor program you are talking about only checks your hdd for sector errors.

A:Windows 8 Disk errors but disks test good?

I don't see that diagnostics file or the admin events list uploaded.

Does Disk1 contain the volume Boot? If not, then try disconnecting Disk1 to see if that improves things. You also may want to run CHKDSK /R /F on the disk that volume Boot is on.

Have you looked for misbehaving explorer.exe add-ons? Use ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows and disable all non-Microsoft extensions to see if that fixes the problem.
Have you seen if it's a DPC Latency issue (just a guess on my part): How to Diagnose and Fix High DPC Latency Issues with WPA (Windows Vista/7/8) - Sysnative Forums
Have you tried a Process Monitor capture to see what the system is doing when it slows down (these logs are very, very large!): Process Monitor
Another guess is to run DISM (aimed at the "scanned online" portion of the last error message):

Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt). Press Enter after each one:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

If the problem is fixable, you can use this command to repair it (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt). Press Enter after typing it:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

From this article: Repair a Windows Image

You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption.

The actual error that you're seeing says that the operation was retried. With just 3 errors, I'd suspect that there was a subsequent Information event that stated it was tried/retried successfully (but haven't looked at any other systems for this myself). I'd imagine that it would take many, many of these errors in order to see a significant decrease in performance (a freeze) - so I wonder if this is a symptom of the problem, or if it's unrelated?

Booting from disk on a UEFI system is a bit trying at times.
If it's an OEM system that came originally w/Win8, then try disabling Secure Boot and enabling anything like "Legacy boot". I have no experience with loading Win8 on a system with UEFI other than OEM systems.
At work (on BIOS systems) we usually switch from AHCI to SATA/ATA/Legacy/etc in order to run Seatools on systems that don't see the hard drive (I prefer the in Windows test or a test in Windows PE/RE- as I wonder about damage to the boot stuff if I accidentally boot with AHCI not enabled - so I don't use it myself).

Looking at both topics, there's not even a similarity in the storage controllers.
That leaves (as you've stated) - Win8, W-D Black HDD's, and LogMeIn

To rule out LogMeIn - you've gotta uninstall it to see if that fixes things. Use something like TeamViewer temporarily (if needed).
To rule out the HDD's - you'll have to install Win8 on another (non-Black edition) hard drive - preferably a non-Western Digital drive and see if that stops the problems. If using 2 of them, then disconnect the other one while testing.
To rule out Win8 - you'll have to install another OS (?Win7?) and see if that stops the problems.

I lean towards blaming LogMeIn because it's the easiest to test and it has older drivers. These drivers work in the kernel space and can (fairly easily) interfere with other drivers/kernel components.

A:Dell Studio 1737 Memory Test Errors

If you are getting errors from Memory tests the first thing I would be looking at is the RAM. Faulty RAM can cause no end of apparently random errors which can lead you all over the place trying to find the cause.

If you have 2 or more sticks of RAM take them all out and try running the PC with just 1 stick at a time to see if the fault occurs. If you get the error with one particular stick installed then there is a reasonable chance you have a faulty RAM module, if it happens with all I would double check by doing the same test but put the RAM in a different slot on the motherboard.

Which is the recommended location to maintain Product Regression Test Suite ? Would it be QC Test Plan or Test Lab ? (specially for applications that tend to change consistently over time which might require us to update core regression suite as well as functional test cases regularly)

I was wondering if someone could help me out with this issue im having with printing redirection. On my workstation computer I have installed an HP printer which works perfectly. Now I wanted to try Remote desktop printing redirection on my windows server 2012r2, it recognizes but when i try to send a print test page it would sent it then immediately vanishes i then tried giving the folder spool full permission which i did.I am completely stumped. I was wondering if someone had this issue or if someone could guide me what im doing wrong

Thank you.

A:printer redirection vanishing print test page

I ended up installing a virtual machine on the server with windows 8.1 the i RDP to the virtual machine and worked flawless no drivers were even needed to install. What i think might be the problem on the windows server is it uses the easy driver first rather then the driver of the device. But it was much easier putting a new virtual machine acting as a print server

*Note: I am not sitting at this computer, and can provide only limited information about it, as it is not in my state. I have some info, but not much.
We have a new network printer, an HP LaserJet P4515, which is on our network. We added it today, and installed it via adding a new TCP/IP port, the usual way that we install network printers. It works for three out of four users that we installed the printer with. The fourth user is not able to print the test page, it just says pending, then error- failed to print.
Please advise so these people can finish their daily work.

I have a home network with an XP system with a printer attached and shared. A Windows 7 laptop and my old XP laptop from work can print fine, but a new Windows 8 laptop won't print. Sharing from the XP system works as I can read files from the XP system on the new Win8 system. When I do an Add Printer on the Windows 8 laptop, I can see the network printer and install it and the driver so the printer shows up as installed on the Win8 system. The Print Test Page does not work nor printing from WordPad. I turned off the Firewall on the XP system in case that was the problem. I don't know what else to try.

A:Can add network printer, but Print Test Page does not work

Does the test page dissapear from the print queue as though it has been sent to the printer or does it just sit there waiting?

What port does it show under printer properties?

Hello, I am new to this site. I am currently struggling to create a tutorial on determining, and resolving printer errors. The goal is to make it specific enough to target a certain audience; however, it is not meant to meet everyones needs. I am thinking I will do an inkjet printer since it seems more common, but I do not own a printer. Nor do I have any experience with printers or printing errors. The tutorial needs to be at least 12 powerpoint slides long. Any help would be appreciated. Trying to finish this project ASAP. Regards,Batgirl,158879.0.html

Have you had problems trying to disable your sound when printing on a Dell printer I recently installed Windows and have a Dell printer not sure if this happens with other printers and every time I go to print it says quot printer Printing" Dell "Done 7: Disabling "Now and Printing" sound for Windows Now Printing quot and at the end it says quot Done Printing quot I found this quite aggravating I did find a page on this website that had corrections for Vista but not Windows and the steps are a little different After trying to go into CONTROL Windows 7: Disabling printer sound "Now Printing" and "Done Printing" for Dell PANEL and SOUNDS I found that readjusting these settings did absolutely NOTHING to get rid of these announcements After some more Windows 7: Disabling printer sound "Now Printing" and "Done Printing" for Dell of my own trouble-shooting I figured out how to get rid of these announcements for a DELL printer Click on the Windows icon Windows 7: Disabling printer sound "Now Printing" and "Done Printing" for Dell on the bottom left of your screen and scroll up to DEVICES AND PRINTERS and click on it Left click on your selected printer will have green check mark and scroll to PRINTING PREFERENCES and click on it A box will pop up In the upper right hand corner click on OPTIONS and scroll down to PRINTER STATUS OPTIONS and click on it Another box will pop up Click on the circle to the left of Never Display the Printing Status so that the circle becomes blue Note selecting this option will disable your printing announcements but it will ALSO disable the box that pops up during printing that shows your ink levels and percentage of printing completed If you want to continue to see this printing status box you will have to deal with the announcements as well Hope this was helpful nbsp

A:Windows 7: Disabling printer sound "Now Printing" and "Done Printing" for Dell

I only use HP printers and have never used Dell printers, so I'm not familiar with those "now printing/done printing" announcements.

I keep my printer set to notify me of the ink levels ONLY when something is printing.

That saves me from having to go into the printer toolbox to manually check the ink levels.

Ok, I have had nothing but a hard time with my new machine. I cannot get the printer to print. When I run plug-n-play nothing is found. I have reconfigured the lpt ports and still am not able to get it to print. I also have run through all of the ms win xp troubleshooting advise and cannot get it to work. The other day when ever I touched or moved the machine at all it would shutdown and restart. I took the case apart and found to motherboard mounting screws that were not being used were touching the board, I removed them and this issue has stopped. But I am still unable to print. Any advise would be greatly received!!

I have a Dell 3110cn Color Laser Printer and it was working fine. Now, it won't print. I have reinstalled drivers and the like. I believe it is because my 'magenta' cartridge is empty. Anyone know if there is any way to make it print with empty color cartridges, as I only print in black and white anyways.

USB printers sometimes get lost whem they are unplugged and then replugged. On the desktop PC look in Properties for the printer and under Ports check to see if it shows multiple Ports for the same printer (like USB001, USB002, USB003, etc). Uncheck the one that is currently checked and try one of the others.

whenever i tell it to print something it gives me the screen in the bottom right witht he printer the printing bar etc, but the bar never moves, the printer never makes a sound, and eventually i get an error message saying the document failed to print. nothing else..

i dont think its driver related, since i doubt the printer magically updated, and it connected to the wireless network bc i can "use" it on another computer. however the other computer has the same issue with documents failing to print.

any ideas, thoughts, or solutions would be greatly appreciated - iap

Hi everyone, I hope someone can help me! I've been working all day on this...

I needed to re-install the driver for my printer. I did that, everything seems to be up and running. Everything was connected (wifi printer). I hit print and the printer made all the correct "printing" sounds and spit out the paper as usual, but nothing had printed on the page at all. I tried several times. Blank white paper.

Anyone have a clue what is happening?



Edit: the printer is a Brother MFC-J435W

A:Printer seems to be printing, but isn't!

How long has it been since you printed on this last? Sometimes the printer heads on inkjets will dry up, but they can be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol. Have you also checked to ensure there's ink in the cartridges?

I work in an office with lots of networked computers, printing to one printer. At the moment 1 computer is storing it's print jobs, after it has printed, and reprints when the computer is started again each day. Have gone into Printers & Faxes and deleted the print job, but it appears again the next day. I keep deleting the job each morning, as it is still there each day. What do I do next???

A:Printer keeps printing!!

In Printers and Faxes right click on the printer and select 'Properties.' On the Advanced tab unselect 'Keep printed documents.'

This would be too easy, so it is probably not the problem/solution.

Both printers should be useable at any time.

When you click print, you should get a Windows print box appear, you simply select whichever printer you want to use and click "ok".

Follow these steps
Right-click My Computer --> Properties --> click hardware tab --> click device manager --> click on Ports --> double click on printer port.

Now check to see if the status window says it's working probably. You can click on the driver tab to update the driver.

Secondly, it could be a hardware problem. Did you replace the ink with a new Brother cartridge or a refilled one?

Hello all

I'm unable to print on my Xerox WorkCentre? PE220. Win 8 installed the driver properly and did not show any errors or red flags during and after the installation. When I print a window shows up saying error cannot print.

Does anybody have a solution?



A:Printer not printing

Try this.
In Metro screen, right-click lower left corner and click All Apps.
Click Control Panel; under Hardware, view devices & printers.
Select your printer by a single left-click. In the thin upper ribbon, look for Remove Device & remove your printer. Back out to Metro.

Unplug the usb cable; turn the printer on.
Click the Desktop tile, fire up IE10, go to Xerox support and download the latest W7 drivers (if no W7, get Vista).
Click the Windows Explorer icon & navigate to "Downloads" under your name.
Right-click the driver file and extract to the downloads folder. Go into that folder, find setup.exe - DO NOT EXECUTE YET.
Right-click setup - Properties- Compatibility - choose W7 (or Vista).
Near the bottom, Run as administrator - Apply - OK out to the folder.

Now execute setup. It should prompt you when to turn on the printer (just plug the usb back in).

Good luck! And always try a test page.

one way to ensure no one else is accessing the wireless features on your router is to turn off the wireless port onthe router. Perhaps if you could include the make and model wirless router it would help.
