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.)

This problem used to happen in Vista and just started popping up in my Windows 7 32 bit 7100.0.090421-1700. The drive is a 100gb Maxtor external usb drive. I've tried unplugging it and replugging it.

Hello hemis, you said when you bought your laptop, than there operating system was "Linux". Therefore, I think, your hardisk formatted as linux file system base. Windows file system and linux file system is totally different. So when you installed windows 7, at that time you format your c: drive. So widows seven only recognize your c: drive. Because window's seven recognize that file system. Please you format all of other partition on your hardisk by "NTFS" file system. To see your all of other partition go to "run" option and write "diskmgmt.msc" and then press enter. Here you see all of your hardisk partition. Now select drive and right click and then chose "format".

All the best.

After I got my LCD, I plugged in the USB 2.0 cable that came with it because it was a cable that needed to be plugged in (lol). The purpose of the cable is to give me 4 extra USB ports in the monitor. When I did, Windows automatically detected it but it said that it could be running faster if I plugged it into a USB 2.0 port. This is where I'm confused, because my motherboard has USB 2.0 ports... 4 of them, at least I thought it did. Did I do something wrong here? Normally I wouldn't worry but I was just looking at a USB 2.0 TV tuner so....

I have a Samsung SE-218 External DVD drive, and I cannot seem to access it in Windows 8.1 (though I have not had a chance to try it on any other computers yet, so there is always the possibility that something is wrong with the drive).

A:Windows 8.1 doesn't recognize USB DVD Drive

Hi there
Try plugging it in BEFORE booting your system ==> check USB settings in the BIOS you might have to enable USB in Legacy mode depending on the USB drive.

Unless the computer is REALLY OLD the BIOS should recognize it as a BOOT device too -- try booting anything from it --if you haven't got a bootable CD program download something free and simple like GPARTED and just see if the CD / DVD boots.

I had an old Cyrix 6x86 machine that was running fine with 64 megs of RAM, but I decided to upgrade.

Any idea why this would happen?

Howdy, I've got an odd problem.
When I insert a disk, the OS reads it correctly, and I can do whatever with it. However when I remove it, Windows still shows the disk is inserted, and inserting another disk causes any program that tries to access it to hang indefinitely (including individual windows explorer instances).

After several hours of google and trying various fixes (including removing the drivers for the dvd-drive and ATA Channel 0-5, disabling windows native burn capabilities, uninstalling CyberLink PowerDVD 8 and Nero Express 9, and everything in this thread), I've got it so that the drive recognizes a single removal of CD/DVD and insertion of a new CD/DVD, however the second time it still gets stuck.

I'm on an Alienware m17x with a TS-T633A DVDRW.

A:Windows doesn't recognize USB headphones

I would suspect a USB corruption for the headset. Plug the headset in and then go to the Device Manager and display the USB section. There will most likely be an Unidentified Device showing. That is probably the headset, so uninstall the Unidentified Device (Right click on it and then left click "Uninstall"). Disconnect the headset from the PC and then restart the PC. After Windows has started connect the headset and Windows should detect and reinstall it.

A:Windows 7 installation doesn't recognize HDD

This isn't XP - the drivers are all in the Win7 DVD.

Are you receiving any errors? An error prompting for DVD drivers is almost always a bad installer. Download the ISO for your licensed version and burn to DVD or write to flash stick from Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which also has tips to assure a perfect install.

If DVD fails again try the flash stick method.

If no error then try pre-partioning the HD with a NTFS Primary partition marked Active using free Free download Magic Partition Manager Software, partition magic alternative, free partition magic, partition magic Windows 7 and server partition software - Partition Wizard Online bootable CD.

I've decidede to upgrade my girlfriend's computer from Vista to Windows 8.
I didn't dare to delete the old O.S, thus I installed it on a different hard disk. (*)

Now I can choose to boot from Vista or WIndows 8. Both work.
From Vista everything is OK. It recognizes his partition and W8's one as well.
But from Windows 8 I cannot acces the old Vista partition in the other disk (ntfs too). It says that is unallocated.
What can I do?
I don't think I have to repair the partition because it's working well if I boot from Vista.
With other tools such as easeus it's the same. From Linux everything is OK.

(*) In fact it's in an external disk, but it boots properly and everything seems OK, except the partition issue.

I've seen that other user had this issue too. But he had too many partitions. I hust have two primary partitions on each disk.

I bought an adaptor cord-parallel plug to USB-so as to be able to continue to use my old Epson Laser printer with my new Windows 7 Dell computer. When the printer is plugged in a box shows up saying that Windows has found my printer, another box says a driver was found, and a third says that it was installed. When I go to Printers and Devices my printer is listed under Unspecified and is identified as an IEEE-1284 Controller. How do I get Windows to recognize this device as a printer.?

A:Windows doesn't recognize my printer

Hello javapoppa. Welcome to the Forum.

You could try this workaround. I can't tell you it will work, but it's worth a shot.

First, open the printers properties and note the USB port number that the printer is installed to (it should be a "virtual printer port".
Then find the driver files for your printer by browsing the CD or downloaded package (they will be .inf files) and copy these to a USB stick or easy to find folder on your hard drive.
Create a System Restore Point.
I then would uninstall the "IEEE-1284" printer, disconnect it, and restart.

Before connecting the printer follow these steps:
1. Go to Devices and Printers > Add a Printer > Choose: Local Printer
2. Choose: “Create a New Port” > Local Port > Next
3. Enter port name (the port you wrote down previously)
4. Choose: Have Disk > Browse to driver folder (on stick) > Select it > OK > OK
5. Type a printer name
6. Share this printer? > Yes or No

If successful, then plug the printer into the same USB port you plugged into before. Hopefully Windows will find the drivers and connect to the printer.

Let us know if that works. If it doesn't, you can use System Restore to undo your changes.

I am trying to install Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, 32-bit version, on my older PC. I got a virus, so I figured it was a good time to upgrade. I currently run Windows XP Pro.

I don't really understand it. I initially used G-parted to partition my 250gb drive into a 100, 75, and 55. Then I tried installing Windows XP SP3 and it says it doesn't recognize them, so I deleted those partitions and made new ones (the same size though) and it asked me to reboot. After I rebooted it prompted me again with Press Enter to install Windows, so I do and it says some crap about how it doesn't recognize any hard drive plugged in.

Well I just recently built a new computer. after finally putting everything together, when I go to install XP using an old disk, windows only recognizes 130gigs out of the 320 gigs the HDD has. So I figure it will be resolved after installing updates via windows updater. But, no still no good. Is there a way for my windows to recognize the entire HDD without installing a newer version of XP first?

Im also having a problem with the graphics card/driver. I have a Geforce 8600 GT I bought recently. When I install the drivers it came with the screen's right side is cut off by a pretty large black margin. I've tried to adjust the screen spacing via nvidia control panel but no good. Help for both these problems would be very much appreciated.

A:Old Windows XP disk doesn't recognize all HDD space

Hi PublicEnemy and welcome to TSF !

The 137GB limit with older XP install disks is a known limitation of the OS. You need an XP SP1 or later CD to be able to format a partition larger than 137GB during the XP installation.

Right-click my computer and click manage. Go to disk management and you'll notice some unpartitioned space. Right-click it to create a partition. Use the default values and assign it a volume letter and the missing space will become available as if it was a new drive. Keep in mind that it's actually on the same physical drive than the first partition. Don't use it to backup valuable data from the other partition since if the hard drive fails one day you'll lose both partitions.

About your video problem, could you tell us more about your system specs ? Follow the "posting system specs" link in my sig and use everest to create a hardware report. Don't forget to open the computer case to tell us the brand, model and wattage of your power supply (written on the sticker that's on the side of the power supply block).

What's the brand of your Geforce 8600GT ? (Nvidia is the chip manufacturer, not the video card manufacturer).

the BIOS had both slaves at "off" but i changed it into "auto" and actually recognized every single one of them. but when i log on to windows, on my computer, only C and D show up. the CD ROM and F don't show up. what could be the problem? i've restarted my computer countless amounts of time. I was expecting the new hardware wizard to show up once i replaced the CDROM but that never happened.

any help would be appreciated. thanks.

In an attempt to make more space for my media files, I created a new partition on my computer and simply moved all of the files from my previous 40Gig partition into my new 100Gig partition.
Everything was done using the built-in software that came with Windows 7 Ultimate.

Things went fine for a while, then I wasn't able to load my PC.
Fair enough, I reinstalled the OS.
It worked for a few hours, I installed all the updates into my system after the fresh install.
But when I turned it on in the morning, it worked for about 30 minutes and then I got a blue screen and it auto-restarted.

Now, I can't access Windows or even reinstall it.

A:Windows 10 doesn't recognize my new HDD docking station

Make sure you are using the Rosewill power adapter when using the Dock, and plug it directly into the wall socket and not a power strip or surge protector as this diminishes the power.
Be sure you are plugging the USB cable into the Back USB port (desktop) not the front or thru a Hub as these ports are weaker. If Disk Management still wants to initialize, then you can try and recover your files by using the Free TestDisk program. I have had the best luck with GetDataBack. you will need another drive of the same size or larger to restore your files to. BTW age is just a thing, I'm 63.

It sounds very much as though your hardware is incompatible with Windows 7.

Before you tried to upgrade you really needed to download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor, which will flag up any hardware issues.

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

If you can find a Windows 7 driver for your LAN adapter you need to download it, save it to your hard drive and install it from there or go into device manager, select your LAN adapter, right-click it and select Update Driver Software.

My best advice to you is to reinstall Windows XP, and then run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.

What can I do to make the installer see the proper partition table?

A:Windows installation doesn't recognize partition table

Is this an old version of XP (pre SP2?). If so that's the problem, it needs to be slipstreamed up to SP2 or 3 or you just have to install (if you don't bluescreen because of other hardware incompatibilities (doesn't recognize a PCI-e graphics card either)) and then update and then expand the partition.

Windows 10 does not allow the drive to burn double-layer DVDs.  Windows 7 does.  Win 10 reports "correct driver installed" which is the generic Microsoft driver dated back in 2006.  Apparently, no update from MS or HP to fix this.  HP drive fast becoming a paperweight as a result.  Constructive suggestions not involving registry editing are welcomed, such as, oh, an updated driver from HP ??

Chose to install windows by pressing "Enter", deleted the D:\ partition and failed to delete the C:\ partition on the hard disk before starting NTFS (quick) formatting, but didn't realize that til after the reformatting ended at 100% saying that it had 'failed due to a corrupt or damaged disk.'

Now windows install doesn't recognize the hard drive to install Windows XP on to.

The change to 64 bit shouldn't really be affecting this. Especially on a card that is actually supported by windows 7 out of the box. It should have actually auto installed drivers from windows update.

Hi, I'm new to the forums, so please forgive me if I'm not doing everything correctly.

I'm having trouble changing my shortcut icons. Specifically, I'm trying to change the icons for my Chrome application shorcuts saved in a folder on my system.

I found some icons using Icon Finder (Icon Search Engine | Iconfinder), and saved them in a folder in My Documents. All of the files are .ico files, formatted to the proper size, and are the only files in that folder. I then go through the normal process by going to the shortcut, right-clicking, hitting "properties", selecting "change icon", and then locating the folder and the file located within. However, every time I do, Windows displays a message that reads

"the file 'lfile location' contains no icons.

Choose an icon from the list or specify a different file."

I'm running Windows 7 Professional 32bit. Any help would be appreciated.

Does it read all other discs? If so then you need to contact Dell/Alienware for a replacement disc.

As for the firmware, make sure to right click on it before running and choose to "Run as Administrator".

The issue could also be the result of the Virtual CD software you say you are running.

Try using How To Use UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive which always works when the others don't.

Use the format button first.

You can keep the stick bootable by leaving the seven folders alone in the drive, but still add other files as you wish making it dual-purposed.

I recently attempted to add a hard drive to my Lenovo W520 laptop using a CD/DVD caddy accessory designed to hold a SATA hard drive.

Windows recognized the new device and according to its messages, automatically installed the required device drivers. However, when I go into Windows Explorer, the new drive is nowhere to be found.

Now, I know (or at least assume) this new drive probably needs to be formatted, but shouldn't it show up within Windows Explorer even in a pre-formatted state?

If anyone can give me a clue as to what the problem might be, that'd be great.

Hey all,

I switched to Windows 7 a couple of months ago and I haven't had any problems. However, today I tried to connect my Seagate Freeagent external hard drive, its a 320 GB eSATA drive with USB 2.0 and my laptop doesn't recognize it. It always worked before when I had Windows Vista. I tried to use Disk Management to see the if I could find the drive, but its not there, I've also used partition wizard home edition. Essentially I've run out of ideas and was wondering if anyone could help me out. Thanks in advance!

I don't have details on what was done to change the drive letter, because I wasn't the one that did this. But here's an overview of the results:

The removable drive shows up in explorer with its new drive letter, however when you click on it, Windows (using Vista and 7) says that it must be formatted before use- checking the drive properties shows a wrong hard drive size.

I'm thinking there are 2 ways of resolving the situation:

1. getting an outside program that will access the drive and allow me to copy the files to a different drive (then formatting the removable drive) or
2.somehow getting Windows to recognize the files on the removable drive.

If anyone knows what software I can use to access and copy the files on the drive or how to get Windows to recognize the drive that it used to recognize normally, I'd appreciate it.

I recently bought a new computer with pre-installed Windows 7 Home Premium. The HDD inside is supposed to be 1TB but Windows only shows 55gb available, of which over half is already in use. I checked from BIOS and it recognizes the drive as 1000gb. I've searched all kinds of forums and DIY -tips but haven't been able to find anything useful. I'd call customer support but it's a holiday today in my country and all the places are closed, so I wondered if anyone of you guys could help. If not I'll call tomorrow.

Thanks in advance

Hi I hope someone can help.
A friend downloaded some video of me on a Toshiba MK8032gsx portable hard drive. We checked to make sure the video was there before he gave it to me.
My computer sees it as removable disk F, and says the device is working properly. However, I can't open anything on it. When I click on it in the Computer Window, it scans (the green line appears at the top, but doesn't complete).
I tried searching online for a driver update, but the computer said the driver was up to date.
Any ideas?

Check in Bitdefender settings and see if is stopping externals from being used on your system. I don't use Bitdefender so I can't help you with the settings.

Do other externals work on your system?

Hi all you savvy experts,

I recently bought a Toshiba Laptop in Saudi Arabia. It came pre-installed with an Arabic version of windows 7.

I have managed to change most of the language options to English under the control panel, but the core of windows is still Arabic, I see this with the welcome message in the beginning and some install/uninstall and error messages.

After contacting Microsoft support, they said that I should contact the manufacturer (Toshiba) and ask for a new OS in English.

Can anyone help me?

Kind regards,

A:Arabic to English Windows 7


As far as I know you have two options:
1/try to order original recovery installation disc on
2/you must install own OS version using original Microsoft installation disc

If you use option 2 you must buy Microsoft disc and pay valid licence for it. All necessary drivers, tools and utilities you can download from Toshiba download page

Just restored a clients machine to a previous restore point, cleaned everything up (virus/malware wise).Only problem I'm having now is some of the elements within windows are displayed in a different language.. I'm guessing Arabic. Already checked Regional/Lang settings, checked HKLM\Sys\CS001\Cont\Nls\Language tooOnly certain items in the CP and various dialogs are in Arabic:How do you fix this??? I believe its keeping me from installing SP3 on this machine as well...

A:Wrong language (Arabic?) in certain dialogs/windows

Hi kisk:

My gut reaction was 'lol' at that screen shot; I've never actually seen the Arabic language pack in use. This was from a malware infection?? But let's address your problem, shall we?

First, let's start off by going into detail about your 'Regional and Language Options'. Was the regional options set to English? In the 'Language' tab, is the 'Text Services and Input Languages' option set to English as well?

Also, are you able to use a Win XP installation CD to repair Windows? If I'm not mistaken, there is an option to select your default Regional Settings there as well. Post back here with more details! Good luck. =)

i installed the extra language modules in windows vista so i can type in arabic.
now, everything works fine, except for the numeric part of my keyboard. I
can't get it to type arabic numbers. It always gives me the western numbers.
It's very strange, cos a friend of mine actually did the same, and he actually CAN type arabic numbers.

I'm using English Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 on a laptop (no external keyboard).

Does anyone have a clue what the problem might be?

After cleaning out several viruses, a rogue security program and a TDSS rootkit, I have a few Windows programs that are being displayed with an Arabic font - mainly the Windows security center and wireless networking applets. Screencap attached. I know I've come across this before and thought the problem lied in the registry, but can't seem to find the culprit.

I've put together a barebones kit with windows XP as the OS and everything works great - except the CD ROM which works fine in my other computer.
If I set it as the primary slave, i get a boot error which says detecting IDE drive and then gives the error "boot error" insert system disk.

If I set it as the secondary master or slave, it boots up, there's a light on (which stays on) the CD ROM but its not recognized in the device manager or my computer.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

xp stopped recognizing cd-rw's several weeks ago. It showed in properties things like size 1.2 mg. no available space. I found a workaround by turning off and then on recording in properties. Other burning software works fine so this is definitely an xp problem. I tried sfc /scannow, an xp repair install. deleting the cd driver in device manager, and deleting the upper and lower filters in the registry. I did a google and it seems others are having this problem. Any ideas?

A:xp doesn't recognize cd-rw

well it might have something to do with the drivers or maybe try installing any software that came with it again you should check for some updates or check with the manufacturer to see if there was any recalls but if others are having the problems it means that there isn't any odd unheard of problem with your machine i don't have many more ideas because i don't know your machine or any other things but check out your options

if you have any other questions post back or just email me i'd be glad to help!

I installed a second DVD/CD Optical Drive (Samsung Super Writemaster) in my Dell Optiplex 780 and Windows 7 Pro doesn't (will not) recognize the presence of the new drive. I reinstalled the OS disc and did a CHKDSK on it yesterday. No change.The drive is hooked up with a new SATA cable to the SATA2 connection port and the power supply is plugged into the drive and is operating. It still doesn't know the new drive is there. Anyone know what the problem might be??
