Preferred Solution: I can hear "computing sounds" from my computer, through my speakers

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.)

Checked some settings in the Bios, noticed the sound isnt there while navigating it. Static started once windows loaded. Maybe it is some sort of issue with the hard drive

The title was a bad explanation. I'll try to explain in my not knowing anything about computers way, the picture will also help to explain. So what happens is when I'm doing something like watching youtube, I disable the "Speakers / HP" because for some reason it makes my audio sound distant, like it's in a big room. When I disable it, it's fine. Only problem about when I disable it is my games are silent and I listen to music on my computer. So I don't really understand why it affects my headphone audio quality just because I have "Speakers / HP" enabled.
Last note, making one thing the default or whatever doesn't work. No matter how many times I click make default, "Speakers / HP" stays as default.

Just got a new computer this week, getting tons of headaches trying to find an answer for my issue.

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, and I have Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio. "Show Disabled Devices" did nothing for me.

I'm not looking for a program to record something from the internet either. I broadcast live streams on justin.tv of me playing World of Warcraft and various other games. And I used to use "What U Hear" so people could hear the game.

Is there any hope? Some sort of magical fix it all driver? What are my options?

Thank you.

A:No "What U Hear/Stereo Mix" on new computer?

Hi Scantraxx,

Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio's "What You Hear" option is no longer included in Vista or Win7

Hi there:

I installed a program I needed for school a couple weeks ago and ever since then my comp plays random sounds like "congratulations you've won" or what appears to be the beginning of other advertisements. I thought it only played when I had a browser opened...but I've just noticed it plays irregardless of a browser being opened or not.

Any help to remove these random noises from my computer would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot:

For a couple weeks now, My laptop has been making a "pop" sound everytime on start up after the windows logo comes together it makes a faint pop sound then continues to the login screen. Everytime I muted or unmuted the speakers it would make the sound too. I changed my driver the the Windows default and it stopped but the pop won't.


Laptop Model / Manufacturer : Gateway NV53A
Sound Driver : Realtek (But changed to Windows Default)

A:Laptop speakers emit a "pop" sound after "Starting Windows"

The windows default is the culprit here.

When your system boots, drivers started one after another, the pop sound came in because the default driver is not built to especially manage your audio card.

Download the driver from the manufacturer according to your model, install it and I assure you all will be fine.

cheers.

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

Today as I got home from a meeting I turned my laptop on and when I got to Windows, a box popped up saying

"Found New Hardware Wizard:

If your hardware came with an installation CD or floppy disk, insert it now"

What is this hardware? I don't remember installing anything such as this.

Help?
 

A:"Found New Hardware: Network and Computing Encryption..."

Usually just means an ethernet (network) adapter.

Try reloading the network adapter drivers.

To all those who keep on spouting the talking point that "touch" is the future of computing...
In fact is clearly is NOT. At least for the next half century is isn't.

As far as we can tell NOTHING is more efficient than the traditional keyboard and mouse for entering data, it is indisputable.

Perhaps in the following century there will be bionics that will allow those that want to compromise their bodies to use mere thought to transfer that data to a computer, but that is too far down the road to be concerned with now and even the near future, until then the rational, logical and practical issues mean that touch will not be the future except for playing with games or light texting on an WinPhone or Tablet.

A:Touch is NOT the "near" future of computing. Keyboard & mouse is.

In 50 years, the keyboard will still remain. The mouse won't. We've been using a QWERTY keyboard since the age of type writers. We've used computers with a keyboard until the mouse came into the game more than 25 years ago. It's not going to last a long time because if you have a UI that takes advantage of touch input, much like how the GUI took advantage of the mouse, it's gone. Not only that, there's gesture input as well...

Call it a change to how we interact with our PCs...

I had a stereo system that got fried by lightning one day, and the CD player was useless, but the stereo's were still working.

What i want to do is hook these RCA "kevlar speakers" into my computer... but it's confusing because there aren't any jacks in the back. What I do have in the back is [roughly] 2 sets of thin wire... one set is a black waire and red wire joined together [side by side.] The second set is a black wire and a blue wire joined.

The black/red set separates [or forks] in two; the tips exposed.
The black/blue set does NOT separate, but turns ends as an RCA input (?)
I can take pictures later, but I would like an explaination of what the cord are and how I can adapt them to hook into a computer...

I'm not too familiar with this stuff, but I would appreciate help.

Just recently started to hear what sounded like clipping at high volume points in music or video sound. I changed amplifiers, speakers, removed any possibly interfering emf sources to no avail. Finally looked at the computer clock and discovered the ticking is in exact sync with the second hand movements. What could cause the internal clock to send a signal that peaks only during high peaks of sound output?

My father recently gave me a pair of Pioneer CS B9000s and KLH Model 802s. (The models and such don't really matter I don't think. It just makes me feel special saying it.)

Since they would pretty much be gathering dust otherwise, I want to put them to use. How would I go around to hooking them up to my pc? Both pairs will be great, but I don't mind settling for only one pair.

Besides, my current pair of speakers sound flat and boring. I'd like to annoy my neighbors with some Devin Townsend at 2 a.m.
 

A:"Converting" non computer speakers...

There is nothing to "convert", a speaker is a speaker is a speaker.

You need some sort of an amplifying unit to drive the speakers of course. After that you just run a suitable cable from your computer to the amp. ("Suitable" as in it depends on the output your soundcard can do and the input(s)/output(s) your amp unit has.)

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

A:Stereo Mixer "What U Hear" Suddenly Stopped Working

Two general ideas:

Try a system restore to a point in time before you had issues--before the power outage issue.

Uninstall audio drivers/sound card, reboot, and reinstall audio drivers.

Either might work.

It's at least possible that you had hardware damage due to the power outage.

Stereo mix is shaky on Windows 7 as I am sure you know.

Hi, I have upgraded my XP to Windows 7 32bit. I have been trying to record from the net using a Rocketfish 7.1 sound board, but it will not allow to setup my source as What U Hear. I have tried to use the instructions by Corpsecrank written in 2009. My windows do not display the Disable Devices or Disconnected Devices. Is there something missing from Rocketfish install? Is there some additional later information for Windows 7 sound setup. It does display Rocketfish 7.1 Microphone, Line In, Auxiliary and my Webcam.

A:Audigy 2 echo and low volume in "What You Hear" Windows 7 64 bit

I have a Sonar (X2 Version) studio. I don't use my PC's sound card (or a SoundBlaster) for recording, I have a Roland Octa-Capture and an MAudio Fastrack Ultra 8R that I use with Sonar (and I also have Pro Tools MP9 that I can use the Fastrack Ultra 8R with).

Do you have any "Sound Enhancements" enabled in the Creative/SoundBlaster options?

Also, sounds like some type of "audio return" (output back to input) that could be causing this. Some sound features are handled differently in Vista/Win 7. Try disabling the other recording devices (e.g. mic, line in) one at a time in the Sound Panel/Recording section to see if it makes any difference.

One other thought. Since you are using a separate sound card, The Realtek integrated (on the motheboard) audio must be disabled in the BIOS.

Finally, if you have installed EasyTune, uninstall it. My new recording system is using a Gigabyte Z77X UD5H motherboard and when I installed the Gigabyte drivers I also installed the EasyTune. I was getting some pops in Sonar when recording, I ran the DPC Latency Checker and it showed large Latency spikes. Thanks to a custom recording studio PC builder who knew about EasyTune causing this problem, he advised me to uninstall it. That fixed my clicks and latency problem.

Using W7 and unlike XP it does not provide an option/function to directly record sound playing on PC (i.e what u hear). Is there a way to reinstate this function in W7. Some answers on google talk about enabling "stereo mixer" device in sound section. I do not have that option. Others suggest downloading latest driver for onboard sound card. I have an ASUS P5KPL/1600 motherboard which according to manual has a CODEC sound card. In "sound devices" default sound is showing as AK5371. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, my first thread here. I have searched many forums and webpages looking for a solution for my problem.
I just bought a Sony Vaio VGN-NW26M Laptop for Recording Music and Video Editing. My audio card says its a RealTek High definition. I just can't seem to find any Line-In or Audio Mix.

I have tried checking the show disabled devices but all it shows it the microphone. I have tried updating the audio driver but windows 7 says I have the latest driver.

Would I need to go to the RealTek website and download a driver update or something?? So these hidden things can appear and if so there are so many updates there, which one

A:Windows 7 Can't record "What you Hear"

You can try going to Realtek and looking for new drivers.

But don't get your hopes up.

This forum has many posts from people who can't get "what you hear" going on Windows 7. Sometimes, you can get it going with Vista drivers in compatibility mode. Sometimes you can find a hacked driver. Sometimes you can struggle on your own for 20 hours and eventually stumble into a working solution.

Sometimes you will fail.

It appears to be a deliberate bit of cooperation between Microsoft and sound vendors to foil attempts at recording "what you hear"--probably out of copyright concerns.

Your ultimate alternative: buy another sound card that is KNOWN not to have this limitation in Windows 7. There are a few out there. That might be a problem with a laptop. Maybe an external USB sound card might work for you?

In the meantime, pound this forum for "Realtek" as a search term and you might find a solution. I have both Creative Labs (standalone card) and IDT/Sigmatel (onboard sound) and eventually got the onboard sound to provide "what you hear" capability---but I pulled out a lot of my hair in the process.

Have a SB0770 card that I got working with help from the good people here. When I go to Audio Creation mode the only recording source listed is Digital-in. I want to record what I can hear through the speakers (eg internet radio, WMP library files, Atmosphere Ambient music.)

In Multi Channel Wave I can control the speaker volume in Playback mode but there is no movement of the VU meters in Record mode.

Will simply connecting Line out/Spkr to Line in work? I would like to use a splitter so speakers still work or will this create a feedback loop?

In Windows the recording inputs available are Digital in and Microphone. I guess I would need to switch to Microphone in Win as default recording source.

Hope someone can help.

Hi Folks:

I'm completely frustrated with my Audigy SE Sound Blaster Card from Creative. I've read many posts and still can't find or get my sound card to record.

Under "recording devices": I do not have 'What U Hear' or 'Stereo Mix' even if I right-click the white space and ask the system to show all devices.

I was given updated drivers from Creative for my Audigy SE but they are bare bones and are not working properly at all. I've had to install about three times and Win7 has had problems accepting the audio card.

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium Edition.

Any suggestions or am I looking at purchasing another item for Win7.

Thanks,

Which one should I do? I originally wanted to just do "Return computer to factory condition" but Theog just suggested "Use A System Image Created Earlier." I have no idea what to do. So confusing!

A:"Return computer to factory condition" or "Use A System Image Crea..."

Hello M4TE and welcome to Seven Forums. Sorry for the delay in responding but I just came across your question.

Most newer manufactured computers have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive. The manufacturer provides specific instructions on how to access that partition in case you want to restore your machine to the exact condition it was in when it left the factory. That means you'd have to go through the time consuming process of cleaning out factory bloatware (like free trials of programs you'll never need), installing programs you do need, updating everything, creating your personal settings, etc. Here is a general idea of how to access the hidden recovery partition.

HP Recovery From Partition

Let's say it took you a day or two to set up your machine to your liking using the hidden recovery partition. A System Image is like a snapshot of your entire hard drive. It will include everything from the operating system to all your programs, files, photos, music, all updates ... everything. Most folks keep it on a separate external hard drive. Let's say a week later you get a virus or your machine crashes for some reason. You can use that System Image to return your machine to the exact condition it was in when you made the image. Usually takes about 30 minutes or so and you're back in business. It's a lot faster and more convenient to only worry about a week of updates compared to probably months with the hidden recovery partition. The newer a System Image is the less you have to worry about.

But one caution: since a System Image is, for all purposes, an exact duplicate of the hard drive, it will also include any malware that may be on the machine. So if in doubt, it might be best to use the hidden recovery partition to start off with a clean slate and then make a System Image immediately following all customizing.

Its the server that you were on, it did not like the encryption that that server was using.

I have a big problem here,
I have used my hard disk for 9month,
Yesterday when I watched movie on the half way,
My hard disk suddenly disfuntion,
And I thought my laptop problem due to always lagging so I restart my computer.
But after that I can't read my hard disk (WD)in my computer.
It can read in computer management there.

Ways I try:
1)I try to uninstall and reinstalled again,BUT it doesn't work.
2)I try to unchecked the hide folder and device at view.
3)I try to update the software BUT it still disfunction.
4)I try to use disk management and initialized it BUT there appeared CANNOT INITIALIZED Due to I/O device error.

Any solution for me ?

A:Hard Disk can't read in "my computer ", "initialized",I/O device error

The most usual cause is that the Hard Drive is beginning to fail. Back up your stuff. Go to the website of the manufacturer and test the drive.

Not a major issue, of course, purely cosmetic, but still a minor annoyance none-the-less:

I have a number of card reader drives that I never use (haven't even removed that plastic cover tape from them to help keep the dust out) that show when viewing the "Computer" window that displays drives. Is there any way to hide specific unused drivers from this view? Not remove drive entirely, of course, I may need to use one in the future, but just to hide them so they aren't visible, until I may chose to make them visible again?

Thanks as always,

Russell

A:Hiding unused "removable storage" devices from "Computer" folder

Hello Russell,

You could check Hide empty drives in the Computer folder in Folder Options to have them stay hidden until you insert a card. When a card is inserted, the drive will display in Computer.

Hope this helps,

My office just upgraded and I can no longer use Windows XP On this system I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain I had them installed in opposite vertical margins and they "Launchpads", to "Toolbars" for "Docks" (MSese "TASKBARS" NOT add Need were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin and BAM Sorry for the cliche but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up and I just don't think I Need to add "TASKBARS" (MSese for "Launchpads", "Docks" NOT "Toolbars" can be as efficient without anything comparable Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows GUI and it's making me sick with rage I see only the option to put a quot toolbar quot on an existing quot taskbar quot and no option to create any additional taskbars This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient much less cool about this at all I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues but I see none such in W I have tried every google search string that I can think of and found no answer that deals with anything other than adding that stupid toolbar to the only taskbar that Microsoft will allow you in W So If I'm wrong and have missed some options how do I access them Otherwise I'm hoping there are developers who know what I am talking about and have software to enable the creation of separate taskbars launchpads Can anybody help with either

Hi there,

I didn't really know how to google for this (although I did), so I didn't find anything proper and like to ask you: How do I remove the "labels" from drive types in "Computer" window? What I mean:
These labels above the different drives are really annoying, as I'm accustomed at one item after another and somehow one could change it to that view in every OS every since (XP, Vista), but now it doesn't seem to work? (I tried all the context menu items )

Any ideas? Thanks for your help in advance, much appreciated!

Kind regards

A:Randomly makes "USB 'in and 'out'" sounds, screen flashes black

Try to uninstall Avast and see if the sounds disappear as it is possible it's the cause of it. Windows probably installed generic drivers for your sound so go to the manufacturer website and download the correct drivers for your machine. I fact you should use the drivers from the manufacturer for other hardware such as your graphics and also run an Admin cmd command: sfc /scannow to see if any files are corrupted. Instead of Avast use the built in Defender and the firewall and with Malwarebytes free and common sense you'll be protected

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Sound from the on board ac97 on a Gigabyte motherboard running windows XP was alright until I was using Winamp to convert CD's to MP3's. Then the Chipmunks took over. The Winamp was delated and reinstalled with no change to the sound. It sounds the same whether using a CD in the CD player or running a file off the hard drive. It sounds like this whether I am using Winamp, Media Player or Real Player. There must be a setting somewhere that needs to be reset to the default. Any help would be appriciated.

I like to play around with sound wavs, especially when friends and family are around and I can find one that fits the moment... lol

I was wondering if there are any small programs, something that loads quickly and doesn't use a lot of resources that I can use to play these wavs and sound effects.

I have been using IRFANVIEW... which is OK but is there any little apps out there that would be better?

Thanks in advance

On my old Xp using a cheapy microphone plugged into sound card I successfully overdubbed one guitar part onto another with no perceived loss in quality I had a SB card and used quot recording shifted" sounds - 2nd Overdubbing "phase record what Overdubbing - 2nd recording sounds "phase shifted" u hear quot which I assumed took it directly from the card BEFORE it hit the speaker i e it's recording the amalgam of any sound from the PC that hits that sound card at that instant On my W PC integral soundcard I have tried BOTH a Overdubbing - 2nd recording sounds "phase shifted" webcam and a mm soundcard direct microphone So I record seconds of guitarplaying using either Sound Recorder OR my Logitech Webcam software muting the video I then play that -seconds using WINDOWS EXPLORER preview and then record that again adding NO other part Using either webcam or the mm microphone the second recording comes out horribly phase shifted you almost can't tell its a guitar Any suggestions I've tried all the combos I can think of I have BOTH speakers and recording set to -bit i e they match Additionally on my sound RECORDING tab what is SPDIF Is that akin to quot what u hear quot

A:Overdubbing - 2nd recording sounds "phase shifted"

My guess there's a signifcant latency in the sound card hardware, most likely because it's onboard audio and not a dedicated sound card.

Second, S/PDIF is a data link layer protocol and a set of physical layer specifications for carrying digital audio signals between devices and components over either optical or electrical cable. The name stands for Sony/Philips Digital Interconnect Format

Is it normal for a new hard drive to sound like the following I Just got a GB PATA drive for my dinosaur dell and note this is the first RPM drive I ve ever really listened to while it boots First there s a medium high-pitched hum that lasts about seconds and stops then the sound of something starting to spin -- this slowly increases in pitch sounding exactly like a motor coming up to speed and then finally reaches an equalibrium Then there s an overlay of the familiar quot hard drive rattling clicking sound quot which they all do as they work After a while things settle down and the quot motor sound quot actually decreases in pitch as if it were slowing down Then while I m working I ll suddenly become aware of it all quot starting up quot again Of course these drive Are hard sounds? "normal" I realize during a boot a drive will make quot starting to spin quot sounds but these particular noises are not familiar to me -- but then again this is the first RPM drive I ve ever listened to closely And I know it s most probably normal quot but I just thought I d check before the day return window closes Thanks nbsp

Hi, my windows 7 sound has been too loud, anything above 25 is starting to get rather loud. Ive looked around on google etc and found that the "Windows Sounds" slider is meant to be the equivilent to the old XP "wave" slider. However, my sound mixer doesnt have it. I asked a friend and they said that they had it on their mixer, but the only difference between us really is that hes using ultimate 32 bit and im using professional 64bit.

If anyone knows how to adjust/show the windows sound slider, id be greatly appreciative if you would share that knowledge

I have someone who works from home to connect to an office computer to access a database. Now, she wants to print out of her printer from home from the program she is using. She connects via VNC on a dial-up. Now the only thing I had in mind was to some how network her printer to be available to an outside source from home and add it as a shared printer on the office computer. Is this possible with a dial-ip and also not being on the same network? I wonder if I could do it through HTTP or something similiar?

I'm clueless as to how they disappeared although I was also missing the calculator and the recycle bin. Fortunately, I've found a way to get those back but I'm at a loss as to resolving the missing my computer and my documents icons.

All help will be most gratefully appreciated.

Thanks.

A:I hate the "Libraries" bring back "My Computer"

Me too,
I hate the win explorer forced on me in Win 7.
I hate the wishy-washy baby blue colour, the line spacing, the icons & yes the (can't delete) intrusive Libraries.
Does it not occur to MS that some of us depend upon Explorer & we want greater freedom & functionality?
Amazing to find myself saying the explorer layout in XP was superior, good work MS!

Hello and welcome to TSF

Apologises for the delay getting to your log. The helpers here are all volunteers and we have been very busy lately. If you are still having malware problems, follow instructions below.

=======

You are using an outdated version of Hijackthis. Please uninstall from Add/Remove programs, and delete your current version.

Next, download HijackThis to your desktop

Alternate link

Double-click on the file you just downloaded.
Click on the "Unzip" button to install. It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

Upon install, HijackThis should open for you.

Should it not open, navigate to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis and double click on HijackThis.exe

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Do not post that log, instead, do this next:

=====================================================

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt here.
Please attach extra.txt to your post.
To attach a file to a new post, simplyClick the[Manage Attachments] button under Additional Options > Attach Files on the post composition page, and
copy and paste the following into the "Upload File from your Computer" box:C:\Deckard\System Scanner\extra.txt

Click Upload.
What DSS will do: create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review. DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

Hi Guys - new to the forum.

The problem that I have is that all of the sudden, I noticed that when I open "My Computer", no drive letters are listed for my harddrives and DVD drive. Instead...they are listed as "NGS for handwriting Personalization. Please take a look at the provided screenshot. You will know what I am referring to.

When I tried searching this on Google, I've got some hits referencing Personalize Handwriting Recognition, but it referenced Tablet PC's/Laptops. However, my desktop pc is not a tablet!!!

Any help would greatly be appreciated it. Also, please let me know if you require additional information to troubleshoot this. Thanks.

Try changing the View in the View menu to "Tiles View." If that isn't it then it's something really weird.

Hi there I have noticed that my drive letters shown in disk management are different from those being shown in "list volume" in the windows recovery console command prompt. Below are some pictures, number one showing my current partition setup with the drive letters and number two-four showing what is shown in "list volume" in the windows recovery console command prompt.

SEE PIC #1 ; SEE PIC #2, SEE PIC #3, SEE PIC #4

NOTE: If I do a "list volume" in a non recovery console command prompt the drive letters are shown as they are shown in disk management.

A:Drive letter in "list volume" WRE is different from "My Computer" Fix?

I believe that is normal since the recovery console assigns letters based on which partition it sees first. It is not aware of the fact that the System Reserved partition doesn't get a drive letter assigned as does Windows.

Thanks.

PS checked MS database. it said to go into Adminstrator services and stop WIA. I checked this and it is already stopped on this computer.

A:XP "My Computer" and "Explorer" taking ages to open

assuming you ran spyware and adaware cleanups, i would suggest reinstalling windows..... Windows (every version) will eventually slow down and not respond, act very unstable, not cooperate, and eventually it will commit suicide and give you major blue screens. then the computer has problems booting... a reinstall (a fresh reinstall preferebly) would probably fix it.....

could you post your system specs? that may help a little bit...
