Hello there,
Have you tried to update your USB Host controller drivers? If updating doesn't work reinstall them.

Hope that helps.

A:Error Message: Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your system

During Setup, it will ask you if you need any extra drivers such as SCSI (or SATA in your case). If so, press F6. Now you are in trouble, because SATA drivers come on a floppy and new(er) Dells don't have a floppy anymore. Borrow a floppy-drive from another PC and install that in your Dell.
Setting up with the Dell disks, I'm not sure if they are RESTORE-disks or full XP-disks.
That may cause another problem.

A:No audio output device is installed

Well, one way or another, your computer isn't using the device, so have you checked to see if it's disabled in any way? right click the speaker and go to playback devices, it'll come up with a list of your sound devices, make sure the one you're trying to use isn't disabled (right click to change that) if you're unsure which is yours, just enable them all lemme know if that helps at all

A:None of my devices can detect any external HDD

You might want to have a look at this program;
http://www.uwe-sieber.de/drivetools_e.html
On that site, scroll down to the 9th black heading; Drivecleanup.zip
It runs as a DOS command, I use this once every few weeks to clear out the USB history, which might be why your PC is having trouble connecting to all your external HDDs. I have used this for years, very useful.

Any and all help greafully appreciated and many thanks in advance
 

A:Audio Disabled no audio devices windows 8

Look for audio drivers on the motherboard CD delivered to when after purchasing your system. If you can't find it or don't have mobo CD around, navigate to manufacturer website and download driver for audio device from there.

Good luck!!

Hello all!!!! My name is John. I am trying to find some help with an issue that arose after I installed a new hard drive in my computer. I started getting a message that stated:

C:\Users\Owner\App Data\Local\Conduit\API Support\API Support.dll

Anyone know how I can repair this? I saved an image of my system before installing the new hard drive and then just downloaded the image to the new hard drive. HELP!!! please!!
 

A:Installed new hard drive

You might just need to run some registry cleaners to fix and remove those corrupt registry keys.

Computer is a Dell OptiPlex 3100
OS is Win7 Professional

For some reason, ANY USB device I try to install is not recognized. Only existing USB devices.

I first noticed it when I tried installing a USB stick. In device manager I get an error 28 under properties. At the time I pretty much shrugged my shoulders. I should point out that the same USB stick work fine in other computers including an identical computer to the one I'm having trouble with.

Tonight I tried installing a different keyboard. I have the same problem..Windows doesn't install the driver.

Other USB devices (mouse, old keyboard, USB stick of a different brand, etc) work just fine.

It's almost like something is preventing Win from recognizing ANY drivers. Something disabling plug-and-play?

I've Googled until my head spins. I sure hate to call Dell (PC is still under warranty)

SORRY FOR ALL THE BACKGROUND INFO So I have had the same router for years now Belkin f d - and whilst its had its problems over the years its generally been okay On my home network I have my Sony Vaio and my Asus a ps both my iphone and my samsung tv as well as my mum s acer netbook and her galaxy s My iphone is a few years old now and has for some time struggled to consistently connect and stay connected to the wifi my asus had some problems but they were hardware related and I fixed them a couple of months ago The acer netbook had been connecting to the wifi fine since my mum was Devices up brain teaming my and to fry router given it when a few months Devices and router teaming up to fry my brain ago it suddenly wouldnt connect and no matter what I did to the settings of the laptop or router it could not be solved as my mum is not heavily reliant on technology we got her a long ethernet cable as a short-term fix A few weeks later I wanted to use the internet functions of my samsung tv so I took the cable from the netbook as my mum wasnt there at the time When my mum returned she complained about me Devices and router teaming up to fry my brain having taken the cable but then found her netbook was working over the wifi again since then it has stopped working with the wifi again My vaio and ps have never suffered problems before and my has only began to struggle since being water damaged SORRY FOR ALL THE BACKGROUND INFO About days ago I was in my kitchen where the wifi barely reaches and therefore paid no attention when my vaio lost connection and wouldnt regain it It wasn t until the next day when I realised there was no connection still that I decided to investigate After restarting the router and relocating to my living room the problem was solved Then yesterday I became ambitious and tried to find a solution for the iphone not working over the wifi either THATS WHEN IT ALL WENT WRONG I now since last evening cannot get my vaio to connect to the wifi no matter what I ve read other solutions on the internet and whether they dont solve my problem or ive implemented them wrong nothing is getting the wifi back It either displays as LIMITED CONNECTIVITY or as an UNIDENTIFIED NETWORK with NO CONNECTION through ethernet cable though there is absolutely no issue PLEASE HELP ME I also have a BT HOMEHUB although im with TALK TALK so if someone knows how I can flash the homehub then that would also be a solution for me UPDATE My asus works although it also had an unidentified network I managed to get rid of this by disabling the windows miniports I tried the same fix on my vaio but it had no affect Managed to get my vaio to identify the network by assigning the ip myself rather than automatically but this also did nothing in terms of getting me connected Moderator note Do not shout please - All caps nbsp

A:Devices and router teaming up to fry my brain

With the iphone I would try to forget the wifi network under your settings and then trying to reconnect it. They have weird issues like this often and that usualy fixes the issues. I have also have seen issues in the past with how my wireless routers have been configured. I have seen issues with mixed mode configurations and such. Can you send me any information on how your wireless router is configured?

A:Multiple issues over multiple devices

First. You should try to NOT use a wireless connection for any type of gaming: PC, Mac, Console, etc. If you can hard wire the xbox you'll be waaay better off than using wireless.

Now... Yes, the issues could be related - there maybe an issue with the Belkin N router. I'd try to first reset the Belkin router to default settings, check on manufacturer website for instructions how, most routers you can press a "reset" button w/ a paperclip or ball point pen. Reconfigure the Belkin router, recreate the wireless network and see how everything works. If you are still having issues, humor me and connect the Dell directly to the DSL modem, bypassing Belkin router. See if you still have connection issues, if you do then it could be the DSL modem that is the problem and call your ISP to replace. If you don't have same issues then it's most likely an issue with the Belkin router. Replace it. Don't buy the dirt cheapest router at the store, but you most likely don't need the most expensive one either. Find a good middle ground router, ask sales associate to assist you accordingly.

Post back, Hope this helps!!

A:Newly installed GeForce GT 610 Problem

Try this:
1) Download, do not install, the latest nVidia driver from here (32bit).
2) Create a system restore point before proceeding. Use these directions for assistance.
3) Download and run Display Driver Uninstaller from here.
4) Check the boxes that state "Remove PhysX" and "Remove C:\AMD or C:\NVIDIA folders" and "Save log files in startup path".
5) Chose the option "Uninstall the current and previous drivers and restart the computer".
6) Let the computer reboot/restart.
7) Install the driver you downloaded in step 1.

If this does not work, there is an issue with the GPU. You will need to RMA it and get a new one. Tell the manufacturer that you are having issues. They will usually comply and send a new one.

Hi,

I've removed a lot of things yesterday and when i check today, i lost sound. I think I accidentally removed something related to sound drivers or something like that...but I don't remember what.
There is no volume control in the taskbar. I have reinstalled the audio device and everything is fine but still no sound. I also checked the device manager and there is no any conflicts.

Here is my sound devices information in the attachments.

Thank for helping

I have a Dell Dimension 5100 Desktop computer that the power supply recently went on so I replaced it and now the computer is not recognizing the CD/DVD drives?

When I first installed it and powered the computer on it said I had a Floppy Diskette Seek Failure . I don't have any floppy drives installed so I disabled it through the BIOS and now I noticed the drives aren't working . I have two drives installed one to play dvds and burn cds and the other is a dvd burner . Both of the drives power up and you can hear the disk spinning but nothing happens and the computer doest show I have them?
 

A:Installed New Power Supply / CD Drives not recognized

The old PSU may have taken out the motherboard when it fried - fairly common, especially with the cheap O.E.M. units used by Dell. Also, some Dell boards are proprietary, which means the connectors may not be standard ATX - Check the pinout on the 24 pin ATX connector to make sure it matches on both PSUs.

Hiya,

trying to resolve an issue with my homebuilt computer crashing while playing games. I had an HIS Radeon 5770 installed. I removed it and put in a Radeon 6670. When I powered the computer up, I got "no signal" on my display. I removed the new card and put in the old card again. "no signal"

I tried both in another PCIe slot. "no signal"

For the record, I have a Rampage III Formula mobo. There's no onboard video, so I can't try the computer without a video card.

Help?

Hi, does anyone know what the problem is? I took out the screen of my old laptop, and put a replacement screen in. The screen its self (Samsung) is exactly the same model as the old one, except the inverter board looks a bit different. The laptop turns on fine with no screen plugged in, but when when I plug the new screen in, the only thing that turns on is the power supply light. I tried removing the new screen and it turned on fine. It's only when the screen is plugged in when it doesn't turn on. Is it because it's the wrong inverter board? I still have the old one. Should I just switch the boards? Thanks for all the help.

A:USB doesn't recognize devices on laptop

Hey odriscoll27. I assume your USB ports were working before you tried installing the Kodak printer. Do any USB devices now work in any ports?. Don't connect that printer to any other pc until you find out what caused this. I would first try uninstalling the ports in Device Manager, then reboot and let Windows reinstall the drivers and hopefully it will work. If it does work, check/try another printer cable and try installing it again. Is your Win7 OS at the SP1 level?.

I recently purchased a new computer for my business It is a Systemax SYX- operating on Windows I operate three small CNC controlled machines with it The machine input is via serial cable which I have connected to the computer with USB to serial adapters I have operated these machines in the same configuration with older pc s that had far less devices dropping USB keep out power than this one without any issues but this one keeps USB devices keep dropping out dropping the usb connection The computer is plugged into a amp circuit that has nothing else operating on it other than the monitor and speaker system I have checked and tested the circuit for wiring issues circuit breaker issues and power draw which have shown no problems with the circuit The problem begins when I use a small paper shredder connected to the same a c circuit I can hear the usb connection drop by the familiar usb disconnect sound and the connection to one or more machines is lost when the shredder is operating When I unplug each of the usb adapters from the computer I get another disconnect sound and then plug them back in The connection is restored and I can communicate with the machines once again There is not a single adapter that fails or a single usb port I have tried every combination of usb ports available on the computer with the same results No other devices fail that I can tell such as keyboard mouse or printer They all appear to remain connected unless they are re-setting themselves A couple of days ago I added a small refrigerator to the circuit and now it appears that when the fridge compressor kicks in the usb connections drop as with the shredder Do I have a problem with the computer power supply that will not deliver enough power for the usb ports or could there be a loose connection or board The specifications show that is has a quot watt Bronze Power Supply quot As I stated before I have had the same CNC machines connected with the same usb-serial adapters as well as two dongle security keys keyboard mouse and printer connected to other less powerful computers and never had any issues like this Am I asking too much from the usb power supply or something It has twelve ports and two ports available which I have tried all of them with the same results I am using seven ports to include two for the dongle keys which I can t imagine would draw any noticeable power I am not a computer genius so if this is something simple that is easily solved someone please let me know how to do it If not I guess I ll have to have a little talksee with the salesman that sold it to me nbsp

A:USB devices keep dropping out

I'm not an expert on this, so perhaps wait for someone else's thoughts before doing anything. But I can tell you what I think is happening and what I would do.

I think that the compressor kicking on/shredder motor are generating some electrical noise on that circuit and your Power Supply Unit (PSU) is unable to properly handle the noise. That is a little disconcerting in itself.. but on top of that USB is 5V and hard drives also use 5V this makes me concerned about what that noise and/or voltage drop/spike is doing to the hard drive PCB.

What I would do, is plug your computer in to an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS), they are supposed to kick in if an undervoltage, overvoltage, or significant electrical noise is encountered. That should solve your problem. However, it is going to be somewhere around $50 or more (you can get cheaper ones, but I think the minimum that should be purchased is one that will interface with your computer, the real cheap ones won't). You can have your shredder and fridge on the same circuit still, but I would advise against plugging those devices into the UPS itself. The UPS will likely have 1 line of outlets that are not on the 'battery backup' side, and they obviously should be isolated from each other, but I would feel more comfortable if your fridge and shredder were not plugged in to the UPS unit at all.

So, if you can talk to your salesman, I would suggest to him that you think you need a better quality PSU. If he's going to charge you more for a better one (which he probably will), keep in mind that if the increase in price is more than the price of a UPS it probably isn't worth it.

Hi, I just got rid of Win7 32 bit and installed 64 bit, but I screwed up the partition when I was doing the clean install. Right now I have:
Disk 0 74.5GB Online
System Reserved is at 100MB
(C 14.9 GB
Unallocated 59.5 GB

Is there a way that I can remove the partitions all together? I am in the Disk Management in Admin Tools, but unsure of what to do at this point. Any help is greatly appreciated......

I know this is a much discussed subject but I haven t yet found a thread with the answers I need My problem started with a refurbished PC I bought earlier this year It had a Gb HDD which sounded fine and it is running Windows Ultimate The HDD was formatted with two USB not devices loading partitions C and F Everything worked well enough to start with but I soon realised that not enough space had been allowed for the C drive - only USB devices not loading Gb For various reasons I couldn t go back to the supplier so I carried on thinking it would only be a slight inconvenience as I could direct software that defaulted to C to install in the F drive That worked OK for a time until I downloaded some stuff that would not divert and the provider said it could only run in the C drive so it was useless to me I then concluded that I needed to re-partition it After some unsuccessful searching I found Mini Tool Partition Wizard that was able to tackle my problem I successfully removed partition F and merged the space gained with C thus providing more than enough capacity Having done all this I discovered I had quot lost quot one of my two external HDDs that I could not connect to my camera or my GPS running watch and that my memory sticks were not recognised Probably my Tom-Tom won t connect either but I haven t yet tried it A Google search found what appeared to be a solution that was published on this site last year that involved uninstalling USB drivers and then plugging the equipment back in as at their first use This the instructions said would enable the equipment to reinstall itself when plugged in I did it wrong at first and succeeded only in quot losing quot the second HDD and my Epson DX USB printer A second shot paying meticulous attention to the instructions restored the HDD but not the printer I had downloaded a set of Windows drivers for the printer when I acquired this PC and switched from Windows XP Professional to Windows so uninstalling and reinstalling them returned the printer to working order almost What that means is that every so often the printer is reported as not being ready to print but rebooting the PC seems to cure the problem I am now left with the PC not acknowledging the presence of the camera the Garmin Forerunner watch the memory sticks and one of the two HDDs The odd thing is that having carried out the USB driver cleanup procedure and plugging the bits and pieces back in the PC reports that Windows is now installing each item as it is reconnected But they still don t show up anywhere I will just add that when I disconnect the devices I do so at the device end as to reach the back of the computer involves squirming around awkwardly under the built-in desk unit but I read somewhere that disconnecting at either end is equally good The camera the memory sticks and the running watch are usually connected via the front sockets I look forward to hearing from you Alan nbsp

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

The driver installed is 3DP edition Sigma v9.12 (SigmaTel C-Major Audio)

Chipset is a Intel G31 (Bearlake) + ICH7

I have no clue what the motherboard is though.

Even with this information any suggestions would be appreciated.

Two terminology questions
1)What is the name of the device many people have in their home that allows them to connect multiple machines to the internet wirelessly?
2)Just because multiple machines share the same network connection (I.e. same internet connection) does that mean they are in a network? For example if my laptop and desktop connect to the same [insert word from question 1 here] it doesn't really seem like they are on a "network".
 

A:Terminology regarding network devices

A network is connecting two or more devices together for communications between them. Whether its a simple cable connecting two machines or a switch connecting five machines, its still considered networking.

Switches are multiple network ports that will share a network connection between several computers at one time by switching between the ports. A switch does not consist of a Wide Area Network (WAN) port used for connecting to Internet Service Provider (ISP). There are Wireless Access Points bundled within some Switches.

Wireless Access Points (WAP) are specifically what the name implies, they do not include switch or router functions.

Routers are needed for ISP connections through the use of a WAN port. A Switch and WAP has independent functions which can be found bundled within a Router.

You have an option of purchasing all three network components bundled together within one package of you can purchase them all separate as individual network components.

I've just recently bought brand new parts to build a desktop and everything was running smoothly until I installed the video card. The monitor wouldn't display anything anymore. After removing the video card, everything worked perfectly again. However, when the video card was plugged in, the fans were running but the monitor was still not displaying anything. Could this be an issue with the mobo, videocard, psu, or monitor?

Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI Bios

Video Card: MSI Twin Frozr iii Radeon 7950

PSU: Corsair 750watts Bronze plus

Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

Processor: Intel i7 2600k

Monitor: ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor W/Speakers
 

A:Monitor not displaying anything with graphics card installed

Did you disable onboard video? sometimes if you use the mobo's video output it gets confuzzled when you switch to a dedicated GPU. also are you plugging everything in correctly? have you updated drivers?

Soooooo, my hard disk crashed before I did a backup, I have no recovery disks, toshiba doesnt ship to afghanistan, I bought a SSD drive, I bought Win 7 64 bit. Before this I tried to recover files by any means necessary, to no avail it dleted all my files and drivers. I installed win 7 and realized I had no drivers. From the Toshiba website I installed all drivers for my model L655D-5066. Everything works except the sound. I click on the speakers fron the device manager and win tells me all the drivers are up to date. The driver installed for sound is conexant smart audio hd 4.119 something. The driver for the speakers is windows 6.1. something; it will not let me use the conexant or anything else. What do I have to or need to do?

This is what I see...

Hi, I've searched google all over, tried various things but nothing seems to change it

Using Win7 x64, PC Spec:

Intel i7 920
Asus Rampage Genisis 2
I have 3 x 2GB Corsair, (6GB) installed in slot A1, B1 and C1.

Windows only seems to pick up on 4GB however I do have 6GB installed.
I ran CPU-Z to scan my system and it picked up all 3 sticks, they're just not being used for some reason.

Any help greatly appreciated, I have moved the sticks around, reseated them and my CPU (no bent pins) so i'm pretty confident it is either a win7 64 bit issue, maybe a setting somewhere or BIOS settings. Note that I do not have Memory Remapping in my BIOS, is there an alternative?
 

A:RAM 4GB used 6GB installed

Has Windows ever picked up 6GB? If not then maybe one of the sticks if faulty?

I had the exact same issue as you, one day Windows was randomly missing a 2GB stick but CPU-Z was showing everything there. I took all the RAM sticks out, blew them with compressed air and it worked.

Just a quick question im new to builds.

o- Do you actually need a cpu installed to power up the psu and power switch or can you start it up without one.
Regards
 

A:Power up without CPU installed?

You can fire up the PSU without a motherboard or anything else by simply shorting the green wire to any of the black wires with a paperclip or similar piece of metal.

A motherboard should not work without a CPU brain, so I'm not sure what you could gain by turning on the board without a CPU.

A:No audio output device is installed

Is this a New Acer, or have you had it for a while.
Many Acer's are not capable of being over-driven. They will become hot and sometimes fail when over-driven at high volume
If it is still under warranty, get it replaced or repaired, and hope you have not voided the warranty by doing your own internal examinations.
If out of warranty, it is possible you may need to replace the system board.
Now might be the time to have an experienced Acer tech take a gander at the innards.

Hi All -

I'm helping a friend in need whose HP Pavillion p6320y does not detect any devices during startup. I.e., the brief startup shows memory being found properly, but when listing drives 1 - 4, none are found.

Looking in the bios, and noting all settings for drives, then reloading default settings (hoping for bios corruption) gave the same result. All the settings were the same after resetting to default (and no drives were found).

The PC was working yesterday and was running Ubuntu off of a CD.

Hard to imagine what could be wrong outside of a motherboard problem, but then that's what I'm asking. Any other reasonable things to try?

Best Regards to all,

David

The bios has probably been setup to use AHCI or onboard RAID functionality. In those cases, HDD manipulation will be handed over to the appropriate software sitting on the boards ROM. So, it'll definitely not show up in bios.

A:Why is Windows XP reporting different amount of RAM than is installed?

Hi Bamim,
A couple of things. What are you using to get the memory info from? You may be seeing the "unused" or availible ram left on your system...not the total installed.
Secondly, The system information does not combine and report Graphics memory/buffer with main system memory. you can download software to see the reporting of Graphics memory.
thirdly, 32 bit operating systems will only recognize up to 4GB of system ram, after reserving a portion for system hardware (memory mapping) it will then report the "availible" or "useable" ram you have at your disposal for running applications.
Hope that helps.

I have Dell inspiron 535s it was running well at 800mhz with 2gb of ram(1
+1) .when I installed 4gb ddr2 800 mhz (2+2)it ran at 667 mhz and window showed 3.25gb usable Ram.There is no way I can correct it from BIOS as I didn't find any option of memory remapping or overclocking it.Is there any way I could raise the speed of my Ram and also Raise it to 4gb usable???By the way I am running win7 ultimate.
 

A:Window detects 3.25GB RAM when I installed 4GB

First, your system only showing usable memory at 3.25GB is perfectly correct. You cannot do anything about that unless you use 64bit windows.

I suspect that the new memory you have fitted has a higher voltage rating and is therefore running at a lower clock speed. Check the voltage rating on the manufacturer's site and then make the adjustment in the Bios.

Hi First let me tell you that I did try to research this problem before posting this I have a HP Pavilion Slimline s w this is probably important It came factory with W and did not include any driver discs I recently purchased Win XP and installed it to a separate HDD My plan is to dual-boot win and XP on two different HDDs if you consider that a dual-boot This seemed XP Fresh installed, the help adapter work need to getting network to work until I found out I cannot connect to the internet with xp I looked on this site for people with similar problems and I came to the conclusion that I need to install the factory driver for my network adapter This is because I dont get the network access icon at the bottom Fresh XP installed, need help getting the network adapter to work and it wont allow me to set-up a connection Going into the device manager there is a network adapter but I dont think it even works So taking the advice I found on this site I attempted to download the driver for this PC from the HP website They dont even have a driver that supports XP for this Fresh XP installed, need help getting the network adapter to work POS The network adapter is fine Im on the same PC right now just on my Win OS HDD The connection is great the hardware is great my modem is fine and my router is spiffy It is obviously a problem with XP So assuming my driver is the problem is it possible i can still connect to the internet if the driver doesnt even support xp If you think this isnt the problem or if you have any suggestions for me please let me know nbsp

A:Fresh XP installed, need help getting the network adapter to work

If you look under Device Manager when on Win 7 you should be able to get the name of the wireless card. And then do a search for XP drivers for that device. You will also need the chipset drivers for the motherboard for XP, those should be available from the manufacturer's site.

I have had many issues with this comupter, but my Dell Inspirton 1545 had started to read "no bootable devices" and wouldn't start at all. Now, after buying and installing a brand new harddrive, it reads it again, but only SOMETIMES!

When it gives me options of rebooting or running a diagnostics test, if I switch some stuff around or restart it, or even just leave it alone for a little while, I can start it and it works fine. Except after a short while of using it, it will malfunction and go to "no bootable devices" page again. Tech support says that the hard drive may not be connected properly, but I don't know what to do!
 

A:Dell Inspiron says "no bootable devices" with brand new hard drive

Probably a silly question, but is anything on the hard drive, like an O.S.? Has the "new" hard drive already been formatted? I'm only asking for sometimes some of my clients will go behind my back and install things like hard drives on their own and try to load an O.S. on them, failing to go through the formatting process, and they in the end either through frustration or embarrassment wind up calling me to drive to their house and fix their problem, like installing the O.S. properly.

Also checking your connections might not hurt, just make sure everything is fitting nice and snug and connected the right way.

(This was just me kind of thinking out loud for you.)

It's another long shot but again, is easy to do, so give it a try. You have the same symptoms so try the same trick as in this thread Driver failure, unknown devices in USB controller. It worked there. Maybe for you too> <fingers crossed>





LookinAround said:





I've seen this trick work on only just a couple occasions but is easy so is also worth a try for your symptoms

Shut down computer. Unplug from the wall. Remove battery if its a laptop. Let it sit for an hour or two to discharge power. Then plug back in and try again.

I ve had this problem for years and always just unplugged the IDE drive SATA drive drive with IDE Reinstalling OS installed to before reinstalling I m tired of doing that though and I want to fix it I finally got fed up at all the problems my computer has been having and decided to reinstall Windows I have SATA drives x TB and a Gig and a Gig IDE drive I install the OS to a partition of the gig drive but during the install when it reboots after unpacking the files it always tries to boot from the IDE drive which gives me an error quot BOOTMGR not found quot Even if I go into the boot selection and choose the SATA drive it gives me the message If I installed the OS with the IDE drive plugged in even unplugging that drive and rebooting gives me the error I have to install Reinstalling OS to SATA drive with IDE drive installed Windows with the IDE drive unplugged I haven t looked at it a while but I m pretty sure the IDE drive is set to slave not sure if that matters though since it s the only IDE drive Is there anything I can do about this I m tired of unplugging the drive to reinstall it s just a pain nbsp

A:Reinstalling OS to SATA drive with IDE drive installed

You need to check that the jumpers on the IDE drive are set for slave and check in the Bios that the SATA drive with the OS is set as Primary Master.

I would also check under Integrated Perpherals in the Bios that your IDE set up shows the Serial-ATA controller is enabled.

A:BIOS not installed, serious help needed before I cause more problems

I suspect that you do not have the jumpers set correctly on the Fujitsu drives. They must all be different to give each drive a separate ID.

There may also be a problem with your Bios settings or possibly the Bios is incompatible.

From what I have read on the subject the SCSI set up would give a noticeable increase in speed.

Hello with on on of Ran installed Windows space it out partition I need some help advice on a problem I am having with a new desktop I put together myself I m sure I have made some rookie mistakes along the way but this is why I did it for the learning process Anyhow a problem I have already encountered is when installing windows I partitioned a gb hard drive with one partition for the os with gb and two more partitions for storage Ran out of space on partition with Windows installed on it with the remainder of the unallocated memory Now the partition with my os is gb full and I know I am going to encounter problems I tried to shrink one of the storage partitions to leave gb of unallocated space to extend on the os partition but windows disk management tool does not allow you to do that Is my only option reinstalling windows onto one of these larger partitions and then formatting the old one I am fairly new to tech spot so If I am not using proper posting etiquette feel free to let me know Thank you any help would be appreciated nbsp

A:Ran out of space on partition with Windows installed on it

You can extend the partition that you have installed Windows into, but in my opinion it would be a better idea to use a program such as Easus Partition manager; at;
http://www.partition-tool.com/download.htm
The free (Home) version is fine for a job like this.
An alternative I have used is at;
http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html
These programs work in a similar way, by showing the partitions as they exist now.
You click once on the one you need to resize (to highlight it), then right-click, choose 'resize', drag the end markers out to where you want the partition to be,
click 'apply'. That's it, it does all the rest, and can take a few minutes to complete.
Note that it is a very good idea to when making major changes like this, to make a system image onto an external hard drive, just as insurance. But this method has worked perfectly for me on several different makes of drive, (1TB Seagate, 4 partitons) and
Iomega 320GB (3 partitions).

Hey Guys,

my motherboard is an ASUS P8H67-M PRO i built my computer a few days ago and haven't really had any major problems but i noticed today when i turn my computer on there is a little message the top left hand corner of the screen i can really make it all out as it is gone in an instant but what i can make out is
"No Devices"

Does anyone know how to fix this? it doesnt make sense as my drives work fine and they are recognised inside the bios. The only issue i have had is i cam to install linux today and i received an error message saying CD/DVD + USB devices not found and i cant help thinking they are linked.

Thanks in advance

Do you have a single drive or multiple drives setup in a RAID configuration? The message you are seeing is fine (and normal) if you have no RAID. It usually will just pass it so quickly that you didn't notice it was there. How long have you let the pc set at that error message?

I've just finished installing a new motherboard (Asus P5P43TD) into a friend's computer about 2 hours ago and have been unable to get the USB ports working. I installed the chipset drivers, Ethernet controller drivers, and Asus EPU-4 drivers, but the USB ports simply do not function. Which means I have to do everything with a friggin keyboard. That has made things interesting to say the least. I grabbed the most recent chipset drivers off of Asus's website and it installed the SMBus drivers (which I beleive are responsible for USB) and everything else. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I left the SLI Bracket on even though I can't SLI with his other card (he has two GTX9800+'s) so he doesn't lose it. I also should have charged for cleaning his computer, it was god awful.

What power supply are you using?

I have just installed the above Graphics card into my custom made system, whenever I ty to play a game, the computer shuts down as if someone has pulled the plug, I have a 500W powersupply in it so wouldnt think it was that.

can anyone help me with this issue? should the power supply have a supplimental powersupply direct to the card or am i overlooking something simple?

thanks for your help
 

A:Just installed GeForce 8600GT, PC shuts off when gaming

Just saying you have a 500W power supply isn't enough information. What brand and model is it?

The card should only have a supplemental power connection if it has a connector for it. I don't think it does.

When i start the computer i see that the USB devices are receiving power. As soon as the windows logo / loading screen pops up the USB devices die. I get to the user login screen but i cannot do anything because my computer only has usb ports for my mouse/keyboard.

I do not want to reformat my hard drive due to having many family pictures stored on the computer.

What went wrong?

How can i fix it?

This could have been caused by a malware infection, driver update or a resent errant Windows Update. Try using a PS2 keyboard and mouse to troubleshoot the possible causes

A:No audio after drivers installed

Are you using a laptop, or a desktop? What model HP are you using (if it's a laptop, the model # will be on a sticker located on the bottom of the laptop. If it's a desktop, it should be on the front, or back)? Instead of Everest, try Belarc advisor's free download .

What OS are you using?

Right click on "Computer" on the desktop, and select "Manage". Under "System Tools" on the left side, select "Device Manager" and look to see if your sound card is working properly. Don't worry about the services just yet.

As for your Driver Robot program, I suggest you uninstall it and get a refund. http://www.computing.net/answers/security/driver-robot-blitware-scams/28802.html Get a good antivirus program as well, and follow the steps listed here

I have a VAIO VPC computer with Windows 7 operating system. I was installing the software for my Palm TX Organizer, and when it came to connecting the device to the computer, I received the message that the system was locating the drivers for the device and then informing me that no drivers were available. When I tried to sync the device through the palm program it will not recognize the presence of the device. I uninstalled and downloaded a new version of the program from the Palm website encountering the same situation when I connected the device to the computer.

I have also experienced this same situation with the installation of Tunes Plus to allow for the uploading of my iPod music onto iTunes on the computer, I continually get a device not present message.

Can anybody out there throw some light on this problem?
 

A:Program fails to recognize devices after installation

Windows doesn't need drivers to detect a Plug and Play device.

So forget about drivers for the moment....

1) You don't say how you connect the device to your compute. I'll guess USB???

2) Then start with the basics: Are you hearing the USB ding/dong sound affect as you should when connect / disconnect a USB device????

Hi,

Just installed a new HDD, and am trying to boot up Windows 7 from an external HDD. Upon powering up the machine, I changed the boot option to 'USB drive' and normally this would work as it has in the past, but now all I'm getting is a blinking cursor/underscore and nothing ever happens.

I used PowerISO to extract the files onto my external, and the icon changes to confirm that it does in fact work..
I am wondering if I need to change something around in the BIOS or if it has something to do with the external's formatting (FAT32)

Anyone know what could be wrong?
 

A:Fresh HDD installed, unable to install OS

Windows 7 installation

You will need to format your drive for Windows 7, in NTFS. The system will look at the first device in the 'Boot sequence' or 'Boot order' in your BIOS, so you need to arrange the order to suit what you want to boot from. The system will look at the first in the list, and if nothing bootable is there, it goes down to the next one on the list. My normal order of Boot devices is; CD/DVD, Onboard SATA.

I just bought a new cpu cooler to replace the stock intel one that came with the cpu and I installed it and turned the computer on and the screen comes on and it beeps normally then gets to the startup screen where it starts to check for hard drives and then it shuts off. I turned it back on and it shut off even sooner, I waited a little bit and then turned it on and watched the screen and it gave me the message that it was going into safe mode and i have to reset my cpu and memory settings in cmos. I also made sure that the cpu overheat light did not come on.

motherboard: EVGA nForce 790i Ultra SLI Socket 775 Motherboard
new cooler installed: ZALMAN CNPS 9700 NT 110mm 2 Ball Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler

i did have to remove the mobo to install the cooler so i could install the back plate under the mobo.
 

A:Installed new CPU cooler and computer will not stay on

It's either no seated properly or the fan isn't running and the bios is shutting down the PC. That's my guess.

I have a dell inspiron e1505 running windows vista and for the past few weeks, none of my USB devices that I connect work, I have tried to connect 2 different webcams, my hard drive and my phone, while they do receive power, windows says that the device has malfunctioned and can't recognize it. Then windows goes on to "install" drivers however it is still read as "unknown device" I have tried several things including registry booster (but i didnt get all of them fixed) and even reinstalled vista. Any help?
 

A:Vista doesn't recognize USB devices

Please don't use any registry repair programs. They are as likely to destroy as to repair.
Try deleting(Uninstall) all the USB ports in Device Manager and rebooting.

Hi muazzam

Is best to upgrade to SP3 (if only because MS has dropped support for SP2) but can start, for now, looking at your problem while you continue running with SP2

Let's start with these initial steps
1) List any Problem Devices

Make sure all your devices are connected and powered on
Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
2) Generate and attach a DirectX report

click Start->Run, enter dxdiag
Notice progress in lower left window corner
When done, click Save Information button and save to your Desktop
In TechSpot, use the paper clip icon to attach the report. (If you don't see icon you may need to first click Go Advanced)
3) If there were no Problem Devices (step 1 above) then also check on your Windows Audio service if Status=Started and StartupType=Automatic

I'll have a look and we can take it from there

I have recently upgraded motherboard, processor and ram. I have fitted my new motherboard and it does not recognise my IDE devices, it recognises PS/2 keyboard, my PCI-EX nvidia 8400GS and my Genius 5.1 PCI soundcard.
Back to the problem.
My IDE CD/DVD drive and HDD are not recognised.
*The bios is on auto detect
*The jumpers are in master
*The IDE cable connection is secure

Any IDEas ?
 

A:Computer not detecting IDE devices

Time for a re-install, and look at your BIOS setups closely... you likely have some problems that can be corrected with changes as you boot to <F2> or <F10>
Start with Default, then go through each setting on the list. There are specific settings for IDE/EIDE... and they are not always obvious changes by the way they are worded...

A:No audio device installed

Did you reinstalled your windows?

It is recommended that if you replace system's motherboard, you must reinstall the windows as well. There are some tricks to avoid that but I wouldn't recommend it, because usually at some time you eventually do run into trouble with such.

Have you checked your system's logs? you can do so by going to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer and under Windows Logs review Application & System Logs and see if they tells you something.

Also right click on my computer and then go to device manager, scroll down to sound, video and game controllers and see what is the status of y our sound card ?

I believe that system is roughly 4-5 years old, and as such probability is PCI-E slot may not be upto the task with regard to compatibility/power etc. I hope someone with more knowledge would either back it up or correct me if i am wrong. Regards

I have problems with booting.
Everything happened when I shrinked a volume. And created a new simple volme in Computer management.
I have 2 windows installed on this dynamic disk. And none on the basic disk.

Can someone suggest me what to do to boot correctly?

I have atached a screenshot of my situation.
 

A:Problems with windows 7 installed on a dynamic disk

You have partition those two TB drives with a lot of partitions but. You have the boot record is screwy now.

I need you to do a few things:

1. Under 7 after you click on the orb (flag) if you have the word computer listed to the right side of the menu.
2. Right click on Computer then on Properties.
3. Then click on Advance System Settings
4. Click on Startup and Recovery then on Settings

Now System Startup? What does it say?
Should say Windows 7
Make sure those two boxes are checked off and both should say 30 seconds.

5. Click okay
6. Click on Environment Variables

Look at System Variables
Path
Should look like this:

%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\

Look at
Windir C:\Windows Do you see this or where you have your partition drive set for Windows 7 OS?

7. If all look the same they click on cancel if not then you have to click on edit to fix.
8. Exit out of the above

9. Press Orb Flag and R key on your keyboard at the sametime
A. Type in: msconfig
B: Click on Boot
C: What does it read?

Should say Windows 7 (C:\Windows): Current OS; Default OS:

D: Check off Safe Boot
E: Change time out to 30 or 60
F: Check make all boot changes permanent

Optional setting in the next step....

G: Also click on Advance Options (Boot Advanced Options)
If you have more than 2-cores then select the cores you have on your CPU. Check that off.
Also Max Memory check off also. Don't enter in the memory though.
