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.)

Hi guys - this is a weird problem that I ve always had since building this computer or years ago and I don t think the drive was new when I built it so it went from totally normal in my xp machine to doing this weird thing when I put it in a new system with Win I ve searched and not been able to find anyone with the same problem It normally occurs when listening to music or watching a film and it only happens very occasionally when you go to skip to to a new song or skip to a different place in the video It s never been a Some then HD until whirs clicks apps unresponsive major problem and in fact I think it s only done it once this week so aside from googling it a couple of times never actually got very far with fixing it So in winamp for example just after opening it I ll click next song winamp installation and music are on different hard drives as are VLC and movies and it ll freeze Then the disk will make a whir and about seconds later there will be a click and everything will come Some apps unresponsive until HD whirs then clicks back to life During this time I can move my mouse and do other things on the computer Like I said it s always done this and it s never got any worse or anything so I don t think it s a faulty drive but I ll post this in the HD section too just to see if any experts there can shed any light on it Thanks for your help nbsp

Hi folks,
I am new to to TECHSPOT,please bear my ignorance.
I want to use my laptop for downloading purpose.I like to download movies and documentary films and watch them later.
Can you guys suggest me a laptop model with their specifications so that I can go for it an buy the same.
Which will be a better option an AMD or an INTEL processor

My usage would be say 8-10 hours daily which would include 2-3 hours of watching downloaded movies, surfing various websites and of course socializing a bit.and this would be almost a daily affair.

The model of my laptop is Toshiba Satellite L645.
I have encountered overheat issues recently and I thought it was the dust that clogged around the fan. I did the clean up and up everything back. I manage to boot up the computer and reach the window dekstop but the fan spin up for one or half seconds then stop.. Somehow, after a while, the fan worked and spin for quite sometimes.. Then again, the fan spin up for one or half seconds then stop and eventually my laptop overheat again.

IS the problem arises from the fan itself, or the thermal sensor problem? Im not sure.. pls help me =(

Normally, 99.999% of the time I just shut it down completely but I'd like to know what "sleep" means?
Does that mean if I do so, upon opening the lid it'll be where I left it at?
I notice in Control Panel>Power Options>System Settings whether its on battery or plugged in , it shows sleep.

A:Choose What closing the lid does?

I recommend sleeping the laptop if you are gonna use it after you close it within the next few hours. Otherwise shut it down.

Hello everyone,
I'd like to know how (if possible) to make it so that my laptop does not automatically change screen brightness when plugging in or unplugging.

You see, there is a brightness setting that is saved for plugged in and unplugged, and when you change between plugged in and unplugged it reverts the screen brightness to that saved level.

For example if you have it unplugged and you set the screen brightness to 100% then plug it in, it saves the unplugged screen brightness to 100%. Now when you're plugged in you change it to minimal brightness. Later when you unplug and leave the screen brightness will revert back to 100%.

I'd like to disable this automatic screen brightness change.
Thanks for reading.

Try booting into safe mode. Start tapping the F8 key from the moment you switch on, when the menu appears use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and hit the Enter key.

Let me know if the problem still exists in Safe mode.

I've been experiencing bottleneck, i think cause of my processor being so weak).
I've come up to this processor Core 2 Duo E6550, would it stop the bottleneck ? or is the bottleneck caused by something else ?

A:CPU fan wont stop working after replacing

I think you missed some wires, eg the cpu power cable, its usually yellow and black, its next to the cpu heatsink.
Or make sure that you ram is connected well and lastly check that you processor is locked well...

if its 24pin, make sure that all the power connectors are all in and well fitted..

A:USB Wireless adapters stop working

If you haven't already, try using a 3 ft. USB extension cable so you can move the adapter around for better reception.

You can also try installing the most recent driver available for your adapter. Uninstall your old driver from Programs and Features first. As you know, you install the driver first and then plug in the adapter afterward.

On one of my PCs I use a USB adapter with a 3 ft. extension. I tried a Trendnet and it worked well for awhile but it finally started to become unreliable. I'm now using a Rosewill RNX-G1. I like it because it has an external SMA antenna which seems to get good reception.

This seems to be a common problem for the company I work for. On some workstations the mouse or keyboard or both randomly stop working (as if they were disconnected). I tried updating the drivers with no success. Any suggestions?

EDIT: when I suspect the keyboard and mouse is not working, how can I be certain the computer is not froze?

A:Keyboard and mouse stop responding

Are the Keyboard and mouse plugged in by PS2 or USB? If it is PS2, try and plug in a USB keyboard and/or mouse, see if there are any responses.. Other things you can try to do to look for a computer response and see if it is frozen is plug in ANY USB device, it should start checking for hardware or at least have something show.

Also the time in the bottom right corner will count up as time passes, this will also tell you the system is not completely frozen, or you could run some type of counting/visual program that loops and continues, see if it runs after the mouse/keyboard stop.

When I use a public computer at the library, there is no option to Safely Remove the USB Flash Drive. How do I remove my flash drive in this condition without damaging anything? I've thought of simply deleting the Kingston icon that appears on the desktop, but I'm not sure if that would work, or if it'd cause further problems.

What's the best solution in this case?

A:Safely removing a USB drive without the stop command

I am surprised that they don't have the safely eject USB drives. Do they even work? They might be blocked by policy.
You are correct to be concerned as this can definitely damage your stick.

If you can get into computer management at the library (Right mouse on my computer and select manage), then expand Storage\Removable Storage until you find your Media USB Device and right mouse click on that and select "Eject". Long way around the Mulberry Bush i am afraid.

Perhaps someone else knows a cmd command.

I use win xp pro, and I just installed Windows Media Player, but why the player stop playing in full-screen mode? It's ok minutes ago. I know this question is kind of stupid, any one knows how to fix it.

A:Why does the Player stop playing in full-screen mode?

It is a feature of Windows Media Player, not a fault
It will automatically pause when manually selecting "Full Screen" (I suspect just to allow you to get ready)
You then need to press "Play" to play it again

Can I also suggest that you try another Media Player > Free VLC Media Player
It does an excellent job at playing most movies (anyway, much more than WMP) And is very easy to use, and I use it

My girlfriend bought a Acer aspire 5315 series laptop last year August and the adapter suddenly stop working. it was working just fine last night and a few hour after, nothing. I've been noticing that the wire is starting to get a spiral twist but i don't think thats the problem. When it plugged into a outlet the light on the adapter it self comes on but no power is reaching the laptop itself. I cut the tip that connects top the laptop to see if the wire broke but its fine. What could be the problem here?

A:Acer charger stop working

It could be the actual connector on the laptop where you plug the adaptor in to. I know on the old laptop i have here that the power port in the laptop is a real pain, always having fiddle around with the adaptor pulling it in and out to get it just right, so it will accept power from the power pack. Fiddle around with it plugged in to see if it will accept any charge, if not it must be something to do with the actual power adaptor it's self.

Hi My computer has recently encountered a problem whereby when i on the power at my CPU lights fans CPU stop up, spin all boot and will be lighted up and fans start spinning But that lasted only about second After that everything stops There are a few times whereby all of them will CPU boot up, all fans spin and stop start working once again after stopping but usually they stopped again with very few times successfully boot up I had brought it to the service center and what that guy did is remove my ram and place it back To my surprise my CPU boot up However a few days later the CPU boot up, all fans spin and stop same problem occur again And I did what that guy CPU boot up, all fans spin and stop did but this time round I did clean my RAM metal piece I don t know what do you call the thing that attach the RAM to the motherboard It failed a few times but boot up eventually after several tries took out the ram put it back I had totally no idea what is going on This does not solve the problem as it is going to come back and haunt me once again I have no idea what is causing it thus I could not bring it to the service center once again as he will tell me this if he is able to boot up my computer quot so what do you expect me to do quot It really hurts Desperate for help hope someone know what is exactly going on Thanks nbsp

A:CPU boot up, all fans spin and stop

If there's a faulty connection, there's a faulty connection... There isn't a whole lot you can do... But try this:

Get a Computer Duster can (A "Can of Air") for $2, remove the RAM, and carefully put the tip of the spray extension (They usually come with a little straw thingy, stick it in the nozzle) near the RAM Slot and blow out any dust or loose dirt/debris/whatever.

Be careful and use short bursts. Too much air friction can actually cause a buildup of static electricity, especially on plastic components (I have fried many a motherboard with this... so really, be careful)

Having a really annoying problem with my sound driver (ha20x22k.sys) in Windows XP lately, keeps reoccurring more frequently now it seems. I will be listening to music and at the end of a random track, the system will freeze for a split second and then go to a bsod w/ the following information:


****STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000008, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x9D3AA47F)

*ha20x22k.sys address stamp 9D3AA47F

The sound card is a Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty. I do not believe the card itself is to blame for I am running the latest drivers and it works fine under Windows 7. Any help with this would be extremely appreciated. I've attached the corresponding minidump. Thanks in advance!

Regardless, power supply makes no difference for basic driving of a board... there is always enough power from any UL approved one. It is the fancy sudden demands on power that make the differenc.
Messing with a Tyan is a waste of time. There is nothing to learn such as there is with a Biostar, Asus, MSI, Gigabyte...

Hi all,
I have a Toshiba Satellite A300-1EI laptop. My question is when I close the screen of the laptop, does the system stop working or is it that the screen simply goes off?
And if I have a task running like virus scan, copying files, or a download scheduler is running, are these tasks stopped or do they still go on even after just closing the screen?
Is this common with laptops of all brands?

My hard drives are SATA's and roughly 4 or 5 years old.

This is one of the stop errors I've gotten:

The mobo is a Biostar TF8200 A2+ (got it back in June '08)

Could you upload some MiniDumps it can help to solve the Problem.

Also how long did you run Memtest86 for?

Orthos is basically the same as Prime95,
What Test or Tests did you run on that?

Small FFT's should be run for testing the Processor, thats assuming that Orthos is similar to Prime95.

A:Emachine Help T2885 stop working

Hi reggie and welcome to TechSpot

The bad news
unfortunetly eMachines are well known for having defective power supplies and motherboards. chances are that they will both go eventually.

since your computer turns on and off sometimes, and isn't completely dead then the power supply is the likely cause (generally a dead mobo just plain doesn't all)

The good news
eMachines use a standard ATX power supply and it's an easy part to replace (because you don't have to remove any other component besides the PSU itself). what's the wattage and 12v amperage rating on the bad PSU? (this info will help in finding a suitable replacement PSU)

as far as the physical changinf of the PSU, it is quite simple, all the power connectors only match the recepticle that they are supposed to plug into, so it's pretty fool proof. the only tool you will need is a phillips screwdriver.

Seems to be on some Vista computers, that you cannot turn it off !!
Therefore, you could set it to not turn off for 15Hrs (ie overnight and more)

You could use this batch file (ie save to Notepad, the save as, all files, PConfig1.bat, then run it with Administrator rights (just right click on it)
Anyway, here it is, I found the batch file here:

Cannot see a fault with your configuration.
Have you attempted a full clean re-install?
Checked the drivers to the point of going back to a previous version?
Removed one memory module to test the other, then reverse so that both modules are tested.
The fact that you can start up in SAFE MODE leads me to suspect your video graphics card as the likely suspect. Do you have access to another video card to test?
You don't mention the cpu and heatsink. Any chance there is a fit error? Bent pin. Too much or too little thermal paste?

I am having difficulty with my computer that started only recently. Slowed response led me to the Task Manager. Under Processes the mysqladmin.exe keeps cycling on and off. My performance indicates a CPU usage of 60-80% constantly. When mysqladmin.exe appears, it is in a different location on the list every time, and it makes it difficult to catch. When I do manage to catch it and attempt to end the process, it tells me access is denied.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to regain control?

I am using McAfee, (updated constantly), and Windows update (updated as I feel necessary).



A:Mysqladmin.exe consumes vast resources and won't stop jumping around

I just "fixed" a the same problem

mysqladmin was hogging massive CPU time and popping in and out of tasklist. I tracked it down to a recent install of Adobe Cue. I think it was incompatable with my firewall and keeped attempting to connect to the internet and getting shut out. I uninstalled Cue and it went away. Later I will reinstall and set my firewall to allow it to get out to the internet. Most apps will trigger a permission dialogue when they first try to get to the outside, but Mysql never asked so it kept failing. Hope this help you solve this problem.

A:Any ideas how to troubleshoot STOP 0x1000007e ?

Your mini dump analysis shows you have a bad component... but sometimes this is caused by an infestation. Just about any component can be the cause.
We usually check memory first, then replace all drivers. Since this is difficult and time consuming, keep a running list of everything you try and every component you test.
Where are you getting your drivers? Try another source... such as the manufacturer of the component.
Sometimes it is helpful to go back to an earlier driver from the same source, or try a different source. Some driver sources can be found with a Google search.
Sometimes it is necessary to download the drivers to a site where you can find them, then remove or disable the existing driver.
Install the new drives in SAFE MODE if it will do that.
Usually this is a driver problem or a defective video graphics, sound, or modem card, or a memory failure. But can sometimes be the electrical interference of a bad cpu fan or power supply. It can also be a defective hard drive at times. Thus, you can have a long period of detection... as you obviously already know.
The first thing I would do, if it will stay on, is run MemTest86 for four hours or 7 passes... on each module, one at a time.
Then change out the video graphic card, then the sound card, one at a time...

Do you get the problem when you remove the sound card altogether?
I am sure other people on this forum will have good suggestions.

I have a MSI motherboard but I can't remember exactly what it is.

I currently have 2 moniters hooked up to this computer and plan on running a total of 20 applicatons on it. It works fine when I am running the first 10 applications but as soon as I start putting up more applications on my 2nd moniter the screen starts to flicker. The flickering gets so bad that I can't see the mouse and phantom applications appear when they arn't really there. I have tried replacing ram/video card/processor out of a computer that I know works and I can't get anything to fix this problem. If anyone knows what I might try next please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

A:How do I stop RAID 1 and keep data?

Well, what you can do is make sure that you have all your IMPORTANT STUFF BACKED UP! Then when you go into the raid configuration utility, remove the current raid array, and then create a new one. Usually they will give you different options of what type of array to create. I would suggest a Raid 0, or if it gives you the option, allow it to configure the drives as "SINGLE" drives.

From your error code I get this info

This issue might occur if the display driver is caught in an infinite loop while it waits for the video hardware to become idle. This issue typically indicates a problem with the video hardware or that the display driver cannot program the hardware correctly.

To resolve this issue, obtain and install the most current driver for your video adapter, or replace your video card.

I'm currently running Windows XP on my laptop and after working for a while the laptop and touch pad will lock up. They stop responding but things on the screen keep going. such as a web page loading or a program running so I know the whole laptop has not locked up. Other things on it such as the cd-rom work and such. I have tried to plug in a keyboard and a mouse but it still doesn't respond. I have even jumped over to Linux and reinstalled Windows a few times hoping it might fix it but I keep getting this problem.

A:Laptop keyboard and mouse stop working

It would help to know what kind of laptop it is..

You get the same problem even in Linux?
The separate mouse and keyboard you tried.. Were they USB or PS/2?
The embedded touchpad and keyboard may be hardwired to the PS/2 controller, that may be malfunctioning. USB keyboard and mouse should work.

A:stop code: 0x0000008E

Brand and model of computer or motherboard, OS, age, other components.
Can be a hardware failure, video graphics failure, video driver, memory, hard drive, an infestation, or the result of tweaking your system... as that code reported is generally a generic report on a memory dump...
It depends on what else is written in the error message, along with that first code. For instance if you change the Hardware Acceleration setting in the Display tool in Control Panel from None to Full, you may receive the following Stop error message in Win32k.sys: STOP: 0x0000008E (c0000005, bf875fc3, f07bcd48, 00000000) followed by KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

So next time it happens, write down everything. Windows posts it all because all of it can be important.

From these three factors, my first suspicion is that you have I/O issues. Your drives are probably fine.

If the HD and the CD are on the same IDE cable (assuming these are IDE, you didn't say), I'd check the cable for breaks/burns or just for a bad connection (cable detaching from connector, or not plugged in tightly to the MoBo).

Check your connections... ESPECIALLY to the CD. Any software that was installed from that drive might not have installed properly, and half of your trouble may just be your hard drives reading badly written data.

Did you do a repair of XP or didn't you? If you didn't, please do an XP repair. It won't destroy any files or any settings. You will have to rerun Windows (Microsoft) Updates though. You can find the instructions here:

A:Awful crackling/popping noises consistent in music and midi-apps...


I have tested old speakers with the OLD audio card, which is still installed above my new Audiphile one. Old speakers work PERFECTLY, so it is NOT the CPU or PC. It is either the SPEAKERS or the AUDIOPHILE sound card. How do I find out? I have no other speakers that connect to the Audiophile card, and I have no other PC with a card that can test the speakers.

Anyone have an educated decision? A popping noise every 10 seconds or so, on and off, sometimes never happens...audiocard most likely, right? The speakers were bought brand new, M-Audio Studio Pro 3's. They seem just fine.

Any ideas?

I have an emachine T2885 was working great until the otherday. I turned it on, no display, no blue button light, no hard drive LED indicator light, and now it won't turn off unless I unplug it. I plug it back in and fans start running immediately and the power button has no control.

Hi am having this problem i have a network which is made of 1 dell server and 3 dell pcs. I have this problem that once every day at 3pm the pcs freeze up they just stop I have to restart the pcs for it to work i think its something with the serve not to sure.

A:PCs on network stop every day at same time

hum; only one of the clients systems and the others are ok or is it the server itself?

does your network still function for file/pring sharing and the Internet as well?

what kind of freeze; mouse stop tracking or windows will not minimize?

what services are the clients getting from your server; a domain controller or
what else?

I have my wireless network setup for my laptop but my desktop jumps to the wireless network. I know this is a common problem but is there a way to keep it from doing this or forcing it to connect on the wired connection and if so, how?

A:How to stop desktop from jumping on wireless network?

should be a fairly simple fix, go into start menu/connect to/right click on wireless connection/disable.

My computer just wont stop restarting i even deleted lots of things even when im in the middle of scaning my computer for viruses it wont stop restarting i have to admit it now takes a while for it to restart it used to just shut down quick does anyone have soulutions i need them bad Please can someone help!! and My windows is Xp Professional and 2002

A:Computer want stop restarting

Reboot the system but now launch safe mode by pressing F8 then select safe mode no networking.

See if the PC wants to reboot still? If not then continue...

Once you're in there go to the system device manager then click on profiles and delete the profile you use to login with. Then Reboot the system and the computer will rebuild your profile that you had deleted with a new one. You'll loose desktop shortcuts, favorites and history will be gone though.

I got this error while i'm trying to install window xp

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If it is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer and take these steps:
Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated.
Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer.
Technical Information:
*** STOP: 0x0000007b (parameter 1, parameter 2, parameter 3, parameter 4)

I can't get into this page while installing window xp

the error occured just before this page....

Anybody know what is the problem???

A:Can't install window XP (error *** STOP: 0x0000007b)

It either doesn't like your hard drive OR simply doesn't recognize it.

Have you set up your bios for the type of hard drive you are installing?

You have to read your mobo manual and set the bios up correctly FIRST.

USB port stop working - Aarrgghhhh!

For no reason, all 3 usb ports on a Medion (wim2030) laptop have stopped working. I have; 1. uninstalled and re-installed hardware 2. updated bios 2.Updated usb drivers 3.Re-installed XP SP2....

A:USB port stop working - Aarrgghhhh!

That almost leaves it to a hardware failure. Have you tried contacting the manufacturer? That'd be my next step.

having a major problem with internet explorer so i switched to the much more stable firefox and now after having firefox i disabled IE and ran into a problem most of my external apps wont run (iTunes MSN messanger so on) i need to know how to make these programs run off Mozilla thanx

A:Firefox for external apps

usually ENABLE ActiveX, allow signed components works.

sometimes you need to render (while in FF) using the IE engine

otherwise, like MS UPDATE, you have a site/application that specifically
written for IE only -- drives me craz :knock:

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Try disabling your onboard sound in bios and see if that helps.

That`s what the found found new hardware window pop up may be.

I take it you uninstalled the drivers for your onboard sound chip?
