Preferred Solution: SoS... Windows Update, Trouble Shooting, Fix It, Drivers, and more. (This may or may not belong is Windows Tools)

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.)

A:Windows XP essentials for virus trouble shooting

I'm not sure I totally understand your question.
 
Are you asking for information about Windows Security Essentials?  If this is the case you can read about it at Windows.  On the page that opens there is a section titled Key Features, each subsection can be clicked on to provide the information for each.
 
I'm not sure what you asking with "needed for faster virus troubleshooting.  Please explain in more detail.

first time could read burned cd then could not

would it help to uninstall and reinstall or something. Sorry if take up space time

A:not sure belong here trouble reading burned doc word o3

Have you tried rebooting the computer then trying to read the CD in Windows Explorer? Files burned to a CD-R usually aren't erasable, a CD-RW is ReWriteable, can be erased and used again. If wanting to work on stored files it'd be best to use a USB Thumb/Flash drive or Copy the files from a CD-R back onto the HDD.

Hi to all members. I am a newbie at Techspot but have some experience with IT hardware and software.

Have been having problems with my PC - first noted file corruption (caused by some hardware fault - not software or malware). Chkdsk revealed bad clusters but later scans showed hard drive 100% in good state. Tested RAM and also found no problems. Physically cleaned PC hardware, checked component seating - found PSU fan damaged and replaced whole PSU. Possibly overheating cooked some other component. I also change IDE cable.

Now system is more stable but I am getting random BSODs on shutdown and I probably something is still wrong. My prime suspicion is that the mainboard has a fault................

Attached is system info and dump from latest BSOD on shutdown.
Would appreciate some guidance.

A:trouble shooting

There is not enough information in your statement to discern what the problem is. Are there any error messages? How do you know it's an "error" sound? Is your computer running badly, what happens just before this sound and what happens directly after it? Go to Start/Run and type eventvwr.msc and press enter. Click on Application, and System on the Left side, scroll down and see if any instances have a Red X. If so, double click it and post the results here.

Could be many things. can you fill in your system specs (lower left corner) so we know what hardware you have.

Does it do this in safe mode (F8)?

Do you have a backup to restore from?

Do you have a win 7 dvd (not restore dvd)?

How do you trouble shoot an on board video card? It's an HP 7840. One thing that I notice is that the computer (a friends by the way) has only one fan (front side).

He said he's had it just a little over a year, he said that it was freezing up at times so he went and so he bought more memory (it only had 64 to begin with), but when he turned it off and added the memory it wouldn't come on, it's just a blank screen. I'm thinking that the MOBO is fried!

Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

have you test your monitor to different pc? or test different monitor to your cpu? if your monitor works in different cpu , guess your cpu has a problem , either its overheating or your cpu is filled with a lot of dust , try to vacuum / clean it ... if you still occur the problem , it must be your cpu's power supply has a problem.

I am having problems with my video display and cannot seem to isolate the issue I have video on the mainboard not a video problems trouble-shooting separate card with Megs Ram of dedicated to video The box is Asus Terminator P Symptoms are several differing Sometimes the monitor just goes black and I have to turn it off and back on It always bounces BOING right back More serious issue is that sometimes and unpredictably I will click some anything and get a screen full of vertical colored bars and a whole-system lockup The trouble-shooting video problems only way out is to re-start at the power switch level go through scandisk etc and I m back in business Until it happens again I haven t tried the obvious test of using a different monitor mainly because the problem is so sporadic and unpredictable The only extra monitors I have are small-screened and my eyes don t work well with them so I m hesitant to tie such into my system for an indefinite time period I do my work on this machine every all day One fairly knowledgable person on hearing about the vertical colored bars and system freeze immediately went to the on-board video as the problem -- but that goes to replacing the motherboard i e building a whole new system and I don t want to go there on spec This box is only a little over a year old This machine has only two PCI slots one with the modem and the other with my ATI TV tuner card in it I have an quot old quot Rage Pro video card I could plug in but then I d lose the TV card I don t do gaming but I do like to watch TV while I work But more important I imagine that if the video on the mainboard is going out then the rest of the board may also be on the way to complete failure In that case it makes no sense to throw money at it when I need to be starting over with a new box board et al One suggestion made to me has been to upgrade that TV card to one that is also a general purpose video card a ATI item but still cheaper than a whole new machine Anyway if somebody can help walk me through testing and isolating this these problem s that would be great I don t know exactly what system info is relevant but will post whatever is needed Thanks nbsp

A:trouble-shooting video problems

Downriver,

You may be up the river. My 'guess' is that the problem rests with the onboard video controller rather than the monitor. So a new MOBO may be in your future.

My reasoning is that if the problem was a failing monitor, it would be unlikely that your entire system would lockup. Afterall, you can turn off the monitor without affecting the system.

That is not to say that it is 100% impossible for a monitor error to lockup the system, but less likely. "Decent" video cards are not expensive. Cheap video cards are really cheap...so you could get one to trouble shoot with. Likewise, older ATI combo cards can be had for a lot less than $200! They are better than what you have now for video as well.

Computer does not boot up

I have a HP dv6 laptop that does not boot up.
I was able to recover the information from the hard drive.
The power source is new and working.
The unit begins to boot up, the fan runs, it feels like it is about to start then nothing happens.
What I am requesting is a few simple steps to see if I can get it started.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
 

A:Solved: Requesting help trouble shooting HP dv6

What's the complete model number of that HP Pavilion dv6 series laptop?

There should be a dash and a series of numbers and letters after dv6.

If you don't know for sure what it is, advise what the product number(P/N) and/or model number(M/N) on the sticker is.

------------------------------------------------------------

Do you have a recovery disc kit for it?

If the hard drive needs to be replaced, you're going to need it.

Just a hypothetical question with regards to troubleshooting internet connectivity.

Considering all but one computer in a network are able to access the internet. Is it possible for the faulty computer to be able to successfully ping the network's default gateway and still NOT be able to access the internet??

Is it even possible. I think, no. what do you guys think?
 

A:Trouble shooting internet connectivity

Hi

Yes it is possible, especially if the TCP/IP stack is faulty or the winsock is corrupted, some adaware.malware can cause this to happen.

A:CPU Spiking, about week of self trouble shooting

Ok I turned all services back on then restarted. At which point my computer gave me a prompt for....
USB mass storage device, Safely Remove Hardware.
There is no mass storage connected. A long time ago I had a USB net gear Internet connection.
That's the only thing I can think of. I have restarted a handful of times. Sometimes I can "Stop" the invisible USB mass storage and this greatly reduces my cpu spikes.
Uninstall does nothing and every restart it reappears. How do I get rid of this?

do you want to change the settings to prefer locally installed drivers over Windows Update?

I am no driver expert. But I would say that your first drive still works, you just have some corrupt drivers. Wait and see what other advice you get from other people here. But I am curious, what other issues have you had with Vista to say that its crap?

Oh yeah, what version of Vista are you running? Seems like the most people I see that have issues with Vista are running the basic version.

I power on my monitor and computer. A blue screen loads only displaying a fundamental picture of a monitor. No other process appears. I need help as it no longer loads up my Operating System Windows XP.

Recently my computer moved in and out of my room as we had fitted in new carpet. I had placed my computer back but I have misplaced my keyboard so it is no longer connected to the computer, I assume the Operating system should load anyway. I have checked the plugs for my monitor, mouse and power and they are all secure.

The monitor is an Optima km-521

My computer had previously always started when I switched on the power buttons. This happen atleast once each day. I would shut down the computer by holding the power button.

No, in most computers, you need that keyboard connected. You can do without the mouse in many cases, but not the keyboard.

A:Sims 2 problem, need trouble shooting ideas. tia!

sounds like there is an object you may have downloaded that isn't compatible with your Sims 2 game. Like an object that is really for one of the expansions.
Or it could be a corrupt file.
Try removing all your custom content then run the game, if no problems then it's one of your downloads.

To find the download that is causing problems, you have to add the downloads back into the game one at a time until you find what is causing your game to crash. I hope this helps.

Everything works fine until I run a player (Windows Media,RealPlayer,QuickTime etc). Then the computer will lock-up and I'll have to reboot. I know it isn't a hardware problem because when I use my previous hard drive, everything works ok! I think it's some kind of IRQ thing maybe ???

So far, I've uninstalled all of my players except QuickTime figuring that if I could get it to work, the rest would too. But even with the others removed, QuickTime still locks the computer when I try to play a file.

My question is, what's the best way to trouble-shoot this type of problem since you cannot run QuickTime in Safe Mode??? Thanks in advance !
 

A:Trouble-shooting Win'98SE Lock-up Problem?

It could be a broken codec that those players want to load. You can try uninstalling any codecs you have installed.

Do the players crash when you run them plain, without playing anything?

A:False Detection Banner Ads of Fix Windows Errors & Update Windows Drivers

I'm sorry about the mess I made yesterday when I posted 6 threads of the same topic, I only meant to post one. What happened is, when I clicked the post button it took a long time to load or transfer me back to the virus, trojan, spyware, and malware removal logs page and show I posted successfully. Instead I was redirected to an error page, so I tried it again, again, with and without attachments. When I gave up and went back to the  virus, trojan, spyware, and malware removal logs page, that's when I saw all my attempts did go through. I've been getting a lot of redirects to error pages, sql errors, and denied access of select Microsoft pages that are about malware and viruses. Below this I'm attaching screen shots of the error page I was redirected to, along with the fake 'fix window's errors' banner ads I'm seeing in my game app and found their location in appdata, I'm not attaching the actual image file it's the screen shot I took of inside the app. I've also noticed something odd when I open the properties of some of the apps in appdata, I swear I see the display change when I click on the security tab. It's like there's a red mark of some kind next to a group user name but then it's gone, it' happens so fast all I see is a flash of red and I get the same thing when I open system32 folder. I see a glimpse of a view yellow folders and below them 2 files @OpenWithToastLogo.png and @TileEmpty1x1Image.png that have a floral image on the icons and then some DLLs but in a flash the display changes to a long line of folders and the floral icons are moved further down the page. I hope I explained that right, it's the type of thing that makes you feel like your crazy because it happens so fast. I can't see any words or shapes, only colors that are there and in a flash they're gone. Another thing that's odd and messing with me is my recent look at the files in system32\drivers, I don't remember seeing so many blue font files. And am I correct that blue font means packed or compressed?

I have a friend with a Toshiba laptop running vista. It goes to install his wifi drivers and does so but when i hit finish it restarts the process installing the same driver. I cant use his verizon broadband card either, even with the firewall turned off??? as a result i can't get internet. everything else works fine .
AND when i insert the backup disk it says "drives cannot be found"?. i think all of these stem from maybe a screwed up windows driver folder, but have no clue why or how it got like this.

thanks in advance

I am having some problems with my drivers so I am trying to delete the partition on the operation system drive and do a fresh install, operating system and drivers. However, no matter what I do I cannot get my computer to boot from the windows vista DVD so I can delete the OS partition. Here is what I already tried:

- My BIOS is set to boot from CD ROM first

- I have tried both DVD drives

- I verified that the DVD is good by trying it in a different computer where it will boot from the DVD drive

- The DVD drive works because I can initiate installation from the DVD drive. But since it isn't on start-up, I cannot delete the partition and all the drivers.

How do I get this dang computer to recognize this DVD on boot?

Hello Mdhuake, and welcome to Vista Forums.


Here are some other ideas to try:
Do you have another option in BIOS to select to boot from the DVD drive instead of CD ROM?Connect the drive to a different SATA port on the motherboard.Use a different data/power cable to see if it may be bad.Check to see if the DVD drive has a firmware update that may address this.Check to see if your motherboard has a newer BIOS version that may address this.Hope this helps,

A:windows 7 will not update video drivers or windows update.

FWIW:  I suggest that you NOT use Windows Update for hardware drivers.  If the system is a laptop or other OEM system, the manufacturer's website is the place to seek appropriate drivers for your system.  If system is sself-built or put together using individual components that you or someone else selected...then the motherboard manufacturer or component manufacturer (e.g., installed video card) is the website that should provide the appropriate drivers.

Looking at how old this post is and the fact that there are no answers from Dell's "finest", I doubt my issue will be addressed either.
My issue involves the same POS software. I can log into the laptop just fine and enroll a finger for my domain admin account, HOWEVER - this software is preventing me from using MS Remote Desktop.  RD client loads and I can supply my username and password, but the client locks up when I click connect.  I'd like to be able to log into my laptop with my finger, but I can't have this software installed with this problem that it causes.  When I uninstall it I can log into Remote Desktop without a problem.  This has to be fixed.  I am running Windows 8.1 Pro x64.

Hello yoyoam I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad.

A:Windows Update INCLUDES Motherboard Drivers and BIOS Update on M2A-VM?

I have the same board on another pc.

You only need to download and install only that which would make your setup current.

You really only need to update the bios if you will be moving up to a newer processor that is not currently supported by the current bios or if the newer bios fixes a known problem.

You need the latest motherboard chipset driver. (I would install this first if you haven't already)

You need the latest LAN driver.

The audio driver you can either download from Asus or from RealTek.

Hello everyone,

I have a Dell inspiron 1720 laptop with Vista 32 bit.

windows was bugging me about an update, with a 5 minute timer warning before an automatic restart. After clicking the "restart now" button, windows restarted and started downloading updates. Here is where I start having trouble. I get to the point where it says:

Configuring updates: Stage 3 of 3 44% Complete. Do not turn off your machine.

It has been like that since 10 a.m. and it is now 10 p.m. and no change. The little blue light that comes on when my hard drive is working comes on for a few seconds then turns off for a while. I keep needing to take it off of screen saver mode. (screen goes black until I move the mouse).

Im scared to turn off the computer, since bad things might happen. I am going to college in a couple weeks and need my computer to gain knowledge. PLEASE help. THanks.

Try resetting Windows Updates. You can run the FixIt tool, or if that doesn't fix it, go through the manual steps listed under the link for the Fixit tool. http://support2.microsoft.com/kb/971058

Hi All

I've been trying for a week or so now to do a Windows update but keep getting the error no:0x8024D00C. I searched the Microsoft page, and surprise, surprise, there was no mention of it on there. So I did a google search and found someone else saying to make sure that Cryptographic Services was started. It wasn't so I set it to start, restarted the PC and tried to update again (cryptographic services did start up - I checked) but still get the error message. I've also tried this with my firewall and anti-virus switched off.

I'm using Windows XP Pro.

Does anyone know whats going on here? I'm really getting confused.

Hi Netrom,

Windows Update depends on BITS and Automatic Updates services being started. Check your Background Intelligent Transfer Sevice (BITS), and see if there is anything that lists with each for the Dependencies tab, and if so, startup that service as well.

When you are able to access the Windows Update website, then you will have the additional hurdle of validation of your system checked by MS, then you should be able to successfully update.

Hello -

I can't seem to get updates from Microsoft unless I first download Windows Genuine Advantage. I don't want WGA and I've already disabled it on my computer. At the update website I went to "options" and chose not to use their update software. They said that I could still get updates by either signing up for automatic updates (don't want them) or just going to their website.

I went back to their website later and tried again and it's still asking me to get WGA before I can get any other updates.

Is there some way I can keep current with all the updates but NOT get WGA?

I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

Is anyone else getting the following error when attempting to download from Windows Update the latest update to Windows 8.1: WindowsUpdate_80073712 OR WindowsUpdate_dt000"&#8206; (0) . I've researched the error and the only thing I've come up with relates to Windows 7 which, obviously, is not very helpful. I've also run the troubleshooter in Windows which claims to fix the problem....it doesn't. So anyone else got this problem and found a solution?
