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.)

I just updated my Asus Eee PC 1015PN from Windows starter to Windows ultimate. Everything seems fine except for my Network controller. It says there are no connections available and it doesn't look like it recognizes my network controller.

In Computer Management, under device manager, in Other Devices - the only thing listed is Network Controller with a yellow exclamation mark. When I double click on it, it says the manufacturer is unknown and the drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28). I tried to update the driver through the system but it doesn't find anything.

In Everest, Network, PCI/PnP Network, it lists Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller and Broadcom 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter. That is the only mention of my wireless adapter I could find.

Any help would be much appreciated. I can provide more info if need be. Thanks

It sounds like you should have 2 network controllers - one wired, the other wireless.

Are you saying it's just the wired Ethernet connector? or both not working? Did you try the ASUS web site? If one of the connectors is working, i think the ASUS site offers the option to detect your model and tell you drivers needed. Or look up your model manually on their site

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

I have rebooted my PC and installed the driver using Driver max. I tried reinstalling but that did not help. Any ideas on what is wrong?

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.

From cold, can you heat the area around the CPU up with a hair dryer, then try booting.
If that makes no difference, try the rest of the board.

I burned photos and video images on Memorax's DVD RW that I purchased at Staple, and sent it to my family in Japan. However, they couldn't open DVD and see any images. Does a blank DVD disk also have region code and/or video system (NTSC/PAL)?

A:DVD region code/video system


not that i have heard, a DVD is just a media storage tool the same as a pendrive or external hard drive.

Its possible that they may have accidentally blanked the dvd without realising it or the images and video are in a format they cant open, it may be that you didnt close the session when writing the images to the disk..

or...they only have a CDrom on their PC and as such it wont see the DVD,,seen that before.

Both lap-tops have built-in wireless access. Do I need to set-up a wap security code from each computer, or just the lan connected computer, or one of the wi-fi connected lap-tops. Microsoft help is not very clear on the fundamentals of networking, I assume they can't draw schematic diagrams, which would simplify the whole connection process

The encryption and the method (WPA2, WPA, WEP) are enabled in the router and the passphrase is set there too.

Hello all,

My Rampage Extreme board was replaced by Asus because they couldn't fix it. I do not have the code to register the soundcard software for the original board.

My question is if I order another driver disc that has the registration code on the sleeve, will it work with my new MB? Or is the code specific to each MB? If it is proprietary how do I get the right code to go with the new MB?

Asus customer support doesn't know and neither does tech support, each one blames the other!

Hi All

As i was playing COD last night my PC froze and when i rebooted i had yellow vertical lines on the monitor. I went to the device manager and under the display adapter theres now a yellow exclamation point.The message that is there is -"This device cannot start. (Code 10)".
I had a quick look at several forums and have a feeling my card might be dead. Any suggestions before I assume that?

I had the PC put together about 4 months ago. I did have a problem with a defective mother board that was fried about a month after purchasing. That was replaced by the manufacturer and was told it did not affect any other parts of the PC.

I am running windows XP

A:Nvidia Geforce 8800GTX: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Start by wiping the old drivers and reinstalling the newest WHQL drivers from and make sure to download a small app called "Driver Sweeper." After you uninstall the display driver from the Add/Remove Programs list (don't restart yet), run DS to completely purge all of the video driver files from the system. Once that is done, restart the computer and proceed to install the new drivers for the card. After another restart try the game again and if it still causing freeze-ups or vertical lines have the card replaced, it's probably faulty vRam.

While running a full system recovery from the Recovery Media, the installation may fail -- and display one of the error messages listed below.
Use this list as a troubleshooting guide -- not as an absolute list of causes, as there may be others.

"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-045D" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive.Click to expand...

I would suggest running chkdsk, or else the utilities available from the maker of your drive... Toshiba?
Note not all drive makers have such utilities, but many do... and since this is a Toshiba error code, I have given you the link to their tools.

It appears that replacing the drive is often, but not always, the solution:
but (Imho) diagnostics should be done to make sure this is even needed, as (it seems) other things may give this error too.

The usual cause is that the hard drive has gone bad... But you may just need to re-order your BIOS?
Have your tried borrowing another drive just to see if it is detected?
That computer can be about 2 1/2 years old... long enough for a drive to go bad...
But if you have valuable data on it, you don't want to mess with it too much... just because it doesn't boot, or is not detected, doesn't mean you cannot access it later to retrieve the data... because usually you can.
It can be a lot of other problems as well, so tell us more about your system and what you were in the middle of?

your hp box is not only engineered by hp (who tend to focus on low assembly costs) but is an oem build, thus severely limiting your options. a suggested next step would be to attempt to poke around in the bios setup utility and/or to try out a wider variety of cards/slot configurations. good luck.

A:Error code 10

what version of Windows and Service Pack level is installed?

This often means (at least a place to start) that a driver is corrupted/interfering.

Look in Add/Remove Programs first.
=> Are any Sound Blaster sound card programs listed? Remove them first
=> Then check device manager for sound drivers. Uninstall
=> Now you try to reinstall them and see if status= OK

I tried walking through the Troubleshooting Wizard, and got to the point where I am to find conflicting devices and try to reconfigure. This is where I get really confused.Click to expand...

A disabled device still consumes resources!
You should look through the Dell documentation as i'm guessing you probably have an onboard graphics card and you need to disable the card in BIOS (not Device Manager)
BIOS is your kind of "system configuration chip" that dicates much of what follows. Generall, to entery your BIOS you must reboot. Immediately and during the Dell flash screen after powering up, start tapping F2 to get into the BIOS setup screen. BE CAREFUL OF CHANGING ONLY THOSE SETTINGS YOU ARE SURE OF
Browse through the pages of setup options and you're likely one that allows you to enable/disable the onboard (or they may call it "integrated") graphics card. DISABLE it

Send it back to HP and ask them to fix it for a fee.

Try playing the game with no sound. Turn of sound in the game and also unplug any speakers

Try to disable the nForce Audio Drivers from Dxdiag ...
Start -> Run -> dxdiag -> Sound and Hardware Acceleration -> No acceleration

with this way nForce will emulate sound so nvmcp.sys will virtually not exist

So i put in the 8400 and installed it and then i got the code 12 error. The 6800 is still working. The 8400 is the one with the code 12 error.

Both of the video cards only have a vga port. So will I be able to run both of these video cards to get the two monitors to work? If so how should i fix this?

A:Error code 10000050 on new mobo

Your one minidumpt cited error 0xA which are strong indications of hardware issues. The problem is that a core Window driver was cited as probably cause which isn't much help.

The other four minidumps were all 0x50. describes them as requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

Again, the driver cited, win32k.sys, is a core Windows driver.

* Why is your memory not running at 1066? Did you set the memory like this or did your motherboard auto set?

* My hunch at this point is bad RAM so run Memtest for a minimum of 7 passes and any errors show corrupted memory that must be replaced.

* Also, run chkdsk in your Run Box and if you get no errors in memtest do a full harddrive diagnostics.

A:DVD burner code 10

If using Nero 7 or 8, and Windows VISTA
Remove both the UpperFilters and LowerFilters
Even with Windows XP, removing both filters and rebooting can get it working.
On other Nero, Roxio, and Record now, go to the software website to download and install the latest burner software drivers (the process will delete the old version) be sure you have your software serial number handy before you do this, or it won't install at all.

On others, you may have to install the firmware for the drive from the manufacturers website,

On others totally removing Nero, Roxio, or Record now, and editing out all references using RegClean by Juoni Viourno from
Then reboot, and reinstall your burner software.

Also, doing a Gurgle search for DVD Code 10 will get you other suggestions.

-"If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup, or after Setup is complete, the computer BIOS may be incompatible with Windows." Well on the HCL on Microsoft's site said it WAS compatible so its not that.

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?

Hello All,

We just moved across the country, and the computer was in the rental truck for 3500 miles. Evidently, the secondary drive sustained some kind of physical shaking/jarring along the way... The primary drive (running XP) boots and works just fine. The secondary drive (WD Caviar 80GB SE) gets a code 10 (device cannot start)--though it is recognized in the devices list.

Without simply saying something like "it's dead, dude", if anyone can suggest something constructive for repairing the drive, or retrieving the data, I'd be grateful. (I have also tried installing it on another computer, with the same results.)


A:Code 10 on secondary drive after road transport

If you have tried the Hard Drive in another computer and recived the same error Code 10

Then the HardDrive must have failed

But in saying that, Code 10 also means that not all drivers have loaded, and therefore both computers may not have the Hard Drive controllers installed (ie a Sata drive)

Depending on oif you had important information on it, you could try to remove/repair the partition, using Gparted

How does that sound ?

Hi, My sisters laptop is not working correctly. It is fairly new, she got it about a month ago. It is an Acer laptop, model #: aspire 5570z, with Windows Vista Home Basic. processor: INtel T2060 @ 1.6GHz, ram: 502MB, and is 32-bit OS.
The problem is that the dvd disk drive is not showing up in my computer, this problem happened yesterday randomly. After seeing this i went to device manager and it showed up so i went to the properties of it, and it says:

windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.

So I tried this, and nothing happens, it just comes up with a box that says sending solution with a little loading bar, it loads, then it goes away.

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.

A:no display upon power up and no trouble code please help

do you get any beeps from the speaker at all?
If not, disconnect all drives, remove the RAM and all cards such as video. Reboot - you should get a string of beeps. Also all the cables to the front panel. Power off.
Replace the RAM and reboot by shorting the front panel power cable connection. Should be more beeps. Power off
Replace the graphics card and reboot, should now be 1 beep. Power off and reconnect the drives one at a time. Reboot after each reconnection - keep replacing things until you find what stops it.
If nothing at the beginning, take the motherboard out of the case and try it on a non-conducting surface - maybe a short to chassis somewhere.

It is possible a thorough disassembly and cleaning with the proper materials could get it up and about, but unlikely.

The error code 8.2. means "Enable ATX Power Supply". Unfortunately, this discription is terribly vauge....did my power supply crap out on me? Can you have a bad power supply and still have some juice running to it?

I'm starting to think that the answer can only be found by someone else who had to deal with this...getting nowhere fast with Abit.

I just purchased an Abit AB9 mobo and Intel Core 2 duo cpu. When I go to power on I get post code 8.2 which according to the manual means "Enable ATX power supply".

The ATX 24 pin connector is securely fastened, and the lights come on on the motherboard when I plug it in and turn the PSU on. I have a brand new AeroCool 600w psu.

I dont understand how it would even be possible to see the lights turn on if the ATX power supply wasn't enabled.

Is there anything else that needs to be plugged in? I have connected the 20+4pin toggle and the 8pin ATX12v as well as the ATX4P1 and the cpufan.

why is it not powering on?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

This is the meaning of the 9C bugcheck.

(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

As you can see it means you have some kind of hardware failure. You will need to diagnose exactly which hardware is at fault.

Start by testing you ram and work from there. It`s also a good idea to disconnect anything not required to run your system and see if you still get the crashes. If you do, then the problem lies in what`s left in your system. check your system temperatures. If you are overclocking, reset to the defaults.

See this thread HERE for instructions on testing your ram.

I'm trying to figure out this darn beep code for this motherboards bios, but I can't seem to figure out the type of bios, if anyone has a way to figure this out, I'd appreciate it, It's a ABIT-KG7 RAID board, and the bios is giving me a single, long, non-stop repetative beep, like this

beeeeeeeeeeeeeep.....beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.....beeeeeeeeeeeeeep (endless repeating)

Thanks, I'd appreciate it, it's my girl's father's pc, LOL

I'd appreciate it, please, LOL, help me, help me, I'm assuming it needs new ram, but just trying to not make assumptions I'm not sure about.

A:Need help w/ beep code for ABIT-KG7 raid

RAM errors? Overheating errors? BIOS need to be reset?
I suggest you edit your post to a proper one, since your post do not contain useful info. making a good thread will be better for everyone.

I just bought a Biostar CRU -M motherboard which came with an Athlon CPU I also bought a Gig memory stick PC since the board can support it However after I had connected everything and started up the PC nothing appeared on the screen I inserted a POST diagnostic card and error code appeared Award BIOS installed I understand that it means some thing like expand Xgroup codes and it has something to do with memory So I tried a MB PC memory module and the PC booted up easily Then I tried using the Gig PC memory module with some other boards that I had lying around Code 01 Errord and it worked perfectly with every single one of them But it just doesn t seem to get anywhere with the Biostar board although the manual states that the board supports DDR and memory Can someone please help I really don t know what else to do to get this thing working nbsp

A:Errord Code 01

Some motherboards are just picky about the brand of RAM they will take.
