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.)

In a strange turn of events, Nvidia elected to use Epic Games' media event (instead of its own last night) at the Game Developers Conference to reveal its newest flagship graphics card, the Titan X.

A:Nvidia crashes Epic Games' media event, announces Titan X graphics card

Soo... What are the chances of a 6GB "980Ti" variant? A bit like the 780Ti was to the Titan Black?
Because it would be better for games and a hell of a lot cheaper

If the rumor mill is to be believed, the price is going to be $1,349, Most people who buy this for gaming will have no use of the double precision floating point prowess of the card, and the few that would probably should have spent a couple hundred extra bucks to get a proper Quadro!

How serious is this? I'm running on a Dell laptop with a Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller.

It is saying that I should back up all of my important files because of possible hard drive failure.

PLEASE HELP? I don't know how to fix this because I don't know what it means.

During my recent times playing CSS ive been getting told im lagging all over the place, but to me everything seems fine. SOO I need help to fix this lag of mine. I play on a laptop over wifi.
my laptop:

My laptop is currently having problems with it too such as when I try to shut down it'll take like 5 minutes or wont at all and sometimes loses connection to the wifi and I wont be able to open the list of available wifi, but when I can it wont show or connect so I have to restart my laptop.

I have a Dell Studio 1737 Windows Vista Home 64 Service Pack 2. All of my drivers are up to date and I have the most recent BIOS.

I get this error message in my event viewer a couple of time an hour:

Source: ACPI
Event ID: 13

: The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.

Also, when my computer is unplugged from the AC and running on battery power the system lags a lot and after about 15 minutes its turns off without warning.

I feel like this is all connected. Any advice?

Thank you!

A:DNS client event errors

Easiest approach is to delete the host file
\windows\system32\drivers\etc contains hosts

you need ADMIN privileges
First stop the client by getting a cmd prompt and enter net stop "dns client" (exactly as shown)
now cd to \windows\system32\drivers\etc

del hosts
then recreate it using echo "" >hosts
(that is two consecutive double-quotes without anything between)

now you should clear the event viewer log containing the error and follow up with
net start "dns client"

I see I failed to specify, but I need an ATX rather than a micro ATX. I did a quick search on the basic LGA 775 specs and the one I happened to see was a micro ATX, altho I imagine other forms were available?

If yours is an ATX, I'll very gratefully take you up on that.

You wouldn't happen to have a setup manual? I'm far from being very knowledgeable,
more of the typical "know enuf to get myself in trouble" level.

I would imagine I might be able to find and download a manual if you don't have one.

My zip is 89046, Searchlight NV. I'm here temporarily for a 2+ year solar-steam generating plant project, then RETIREMENT!!

Thanks so much!

Let me know how much, throw in some extra for your packaging and time/trouble.

A:Counter Strike: Source + Radeon HD 3650

Directx9 may have something to do with it depending on what the game is and what the operating system is. If you have Vista or Windows 7 and you're playing a game that supports other directx versions, then choosing a different directx MIGHT have something to do with it.

But since you're playing Counter Strike, I'd say not. CS is a very old game and it doesn't take much to run it these days anymore. Even a basic integrated graphics card can run it smoothly.

I don't know if you've checked it, but have you looked at the settings in your catalyst? Open up the ATI catalyst and check the settings. Force Vsync, Anti-Aliasing, Texture Filtering, check all of it. Some games are REALLY sensitive to what these are set to. Call of Duty 2 for example would sometimes crash depending on what settings I had turned on when I ran an ATI card. I'm willing to bet that a certain setting in there is screwing with your game.

There may also be a setting in the Counter Strike menu that's causing a screwup with your graphics card and causing it to be jerky like that. It may also have something to do with the servers you play on. Sometimes the location can cause major lag. But I doubt this is the case.

And as an aside, a computer with an HD 3650 could easily run Half Life 2, Call of Duty 4, and Left 4 Dead very easily on high settings.

A:New HDD/XP gets stuck booting, lots of event viewer errors

It appears that you have a nice system, if you can get it back to normal.
We have to suspect other hardware, since two hard drives have similar symptoms... but you may have copied evil stuff from the one drive to the other. How did you transfer files? Or an infestation.
What did you use to scan your system for virus and spyware infestations?
Have you carefully checked your cables... or even tried replacing them temporarily?
Examine all sockets for dirt and debris, and clean your system thoroughly but carefully.
You may need to rule out some things that do not seem part of the problem... as it may be a long and slow process to figger out where the problem is... I would start, if the drive will work well enough, by running MemTest86 for four hours or seven passes, which ever is longer... or removing half the memory to test the other half, then switching.
We always suspect the cables first. They can fail and look good.
Any defective hardware part can cause problems elsewhere if the conditions are right... so I would begin by making a check list, then trading out everything on the list... video card, modem even if not used, ethernet connection or software, .
I would also try another drive and cable... any other drive, even using the first drive, fully reformatted and reinstalled with Windows and basic software....
Windows will not normally cause these of problem, but if you have scratches or smudges that would make it difficult to read, then you could theoretically introduce errors... unlikely though that is.
You could have an optical drive error that is not seeing the software properly.
But it is also possible that your Asus board, good as it is, has a defect.

We need to repair a bunch of laptop power adapters, If you are aware of where to purchase the cables that can repair the line from the power transformer to the plug that goes into the socket in a recent HP or Compaq laptop, and some older British laptops no longer made. please advise.

We realize one needs to have soldering skills, but I am comfortable with that task. We need the type of cable that has a core, then a insulated outer line, then the woven cable that encircles it... and of course the rubberized outer sheath.

The recent HP power adapters with the pin instead of the yellow hole are failing at an incredible rate. HP charges $75 for them, and the Chinese ones take as long as 21 days to arrive... we need some cable for temporary quick fixes, and most cable is bulky and dangerous or damaging.

Hi All;

From time to time on my XP Home SP2 machine I get a "TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts." warning.

I can live with it, but wonder you know of a work-around.

Certainly appreciate any help.

My problem started when I upgraded my computer to an Intel C2D, 2GB Corsair DDR2 Memory, Windows XP Pro, two Liteon LH-20A1S SATA DVDRW's, EVGA nForce680i video and Viewsonic flat screen all running on a EVGA NF680i S775 Mother Board.

Sometimes the machine freezes, sometimes not. The error message is: Source: atapi, Type Error Event ID 9, Description: "The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort7, did not respond within the timeout period". (At times I get Event 15 error)

I suspect it has something to do with the two Liteon DVDRW's I have.

Hello, I have a one-two year old Compaq Presario and it has stopped receiving power a couple of months ago. The battery currently doesn't work. I took it in to Micro Center, and they saudered the power port. That fixed the problem temporarily, but, two months later it stopped recieving power. I would really like to get some stuff off the hardrive, but to do that I would have to give power to the laptop. So my question to everyone is, is there any alternate way I can give the laptop power? One more thing, the power cord works perfectly.

Anybody know a good video card I can run source well with thats pci and around 75 dollars?

A:Good video card for cs source?

the only good PCI cards are from the geforce 6 series. the 6200 is pci, but i don't know how "well" it will run CS:S. the good news is, it's pretty much the best PCI card out there, and i know it runs COD4 and unreal tournament fairly well. and it's only 50 bucks.

Hey, recently me and my friends have been thinking about building a CSS server, and we were just wondering what you guys thought would be the best hardware setup in general, such as how much RAM, what speed for the components, dual core vs. quad, intel vs. AMD, what mobo, etc. Also, do i need to get specific server components, such as server memory, a server power supply, or a server motherboard? And last, do I want 2 physical cores, or just a dual core processor? Thanks!

I would really like to know where I can buy new silent cooling fans to replace the lawn mower fans I have running in my system. Some one here asking for help said, "I cant concentrate..." I can relate.


A:Source for silent fans

hi schmirk,

you can pretty much buy quiet cooling fans anywhere case fans are sold. try to find ones around 20db or less. has a good selection.

you could also consider adding a fan controller to use with your existing fans to quiet them down (or use with quiet fans to make them almost silent ). i have this one and it works quite well.

running the fans slower will reduce the overall airflow, but that's not usually a big deal. personally i'll take the reduced airflow (and slightly increased temps) in exchange for the silence

I have a custom built pc that my friend put together for me. This also has a sound card problem - The sound stops working after a sound has been played more than a couple of times, and the computer might freeze or restart after a while. I know this is the sound card/driver because the computer works fine when i disable the driver. I meant to use this computer for multimedia so i have an asus motherboard with an external echo event gina 20 sound card.
I have tried downloading an re-installing the driver but that doesnt work. I'm guessing something must be configured wrongly, or the driver isnt compatible for some reason.

A:Another sound card problem! echo event

Hi benz925,
i have exactly the same problem than you with a gina 20 and a Asus P5GD2 premium wireless edition Mobo ...;(
For me , that's not a drivers problem , i have install the Gina with the same drivers on another compute with the same XP pro sp2 and it works fine.
I think there are a conflict between mobo and the gina and really i don't know how to fix that.
The more simple is to put the mail i send to echo support ( without any response , not too cool) for explain my problem and all the things i have try to fix it and it will be cool to stay in touch if we find something.
What is the reference of your Mobo please ?

My mail to Echo-support :
Hello Echo, and first sorry for my terrible english, i 'm from France.
I can't make work my gina 20 with my new config and i've try a lot of things and all your latest drivers 6.11, 6.08, 6.05, so perhaps you can help me.
the card still work fine on my olds computers, and also with a more recent config with XP pro sp2 installed by me identically to my compute ( brother's computer )with the 6.11 drivers.
On mine, install is fine with all the drivers versions for W2K/XP and it seems to have no problem on the device manager.
But i have no sound and chaotic problem with all software calling the asio wdm drivers :
no sound, or sometimes white noise
software that crash or not read any audio events
no output level in the console or sometimes all in the red

Softs work fine with the cheap sound card integrated with the mobo ( but cheap sound, lot of latency, not a gina

I've reinstall completely XP ,without the plug&play option in the bios to prevent hardware conflicts, so i don't have any other soundcard (disabled in bios also), no wifi, no lan,no drivers of graphic card, nothing ...

Gina appear on IRQ 21 without sharing or conflict and it's always the same problem ;(

So i just describe my config and perhaps you have an idea to something to test, it will be wonderful :

pentim 640 3.2Ghz
mobo asus p5GD2 premium (last bios) with chip sound: c-media9880 (same problem with sound chip enabled in bios and not installed)
GC Gigabyte 6600 GT
1 Go ddr2 533 corsair select
hd hitachi S-ATA
win XP PRO sp2
Antec sonata (alim 380 w)
and .. echo Gina 20

Perhaps my sound card is too old for one of this new components and i have to stop to experienced ? In this case it will be better with a Gina 24 or 3G ?

Thanks a lot by advance for support me, i'm really out of idea to try.

Have a good day, and whatever, thanks for the excellent sound of your products.

the reason the laptop is fine is because the wireless card will pick up the gateway automatically you will need to set it on the pc which im presuming is wired to the router..

Fortunately, not all errors in the Event Viewer (EV) are real problems. Actually, many are not problems at all. You can adjust the size of the records that are being held in the EV by right-clicking either Application, Security or System and selecting Properties. You can set the size of each file to keep or clear.

A:is my power source the problem?

What is the brand-name and model of your power-supply?

Switch off the PC and clean the powersupply (just from the outside) with a strong vacuum-cleaner/hoover. It may be quite dusty inside. It may well be that it's fan is on the way out, which may cause PSU-overheating and definitely a lot of noise.
If that does not help, replace your PSU with a 400-450W from either Enermax or Antec.

If you can reach the fan-blades on any fans inside the PC, clean those up at the same time.

Start thinking about a backup-strategy for your HD and look around for a new HD. Before you do that, read this post, go to IBM and download their HD-test utilities.

A:How to secure source code while keeping Internet

hmm; taking the issues from the top:

1) you need to ensure that code on your PC never leaves its.

2) if it does, you are exposed ( I assume from your employer )

3) you want to copy paste code from the Internet into 'your code' safely​
I'll start with (3). Code from the Internet may expose you to copyright infringement and thus your employer could be sued - -
I've seen this happen personally and it is ugly.
You lose your job, your friends lose jobs, and the employer can actually go bankrupt.
summary: not worth the risk

(2) Working at home on software that belongs to your employer is a real nightmare,
not only from (3) but you might become a mule for some trojan infection when that code is returned to the project libraries.
If that occurs, the date/time of your checkin of the new code will correspond to the time of the virus and tag, you're it.

(1) the only way to ensure that something never leaves the PC {better said is not useful if it leaves},
is to
a) go offlineb) encrypt it for protection, perhaps even altering the file name​c) go online and browse, fetch what you will
d) go back offlinee) decrypt the code in question
f) modify said code and prepare it for transport back to the project libraries.​summary: only access that code while offline

REPEAT: not worth the risk

A:"Event Log Explorer" tool helps manage/analyze/report on your Windows Event Logs

I use the subscription to It has been greatly helpful. I don't have this analyser but am a big believer in using the Event Viewer. I'll add a description I have written up which will help in determining the Events: This may be useful in addition to the Event Analyzer.

One thing I have not been able to do is keep the filters set with the software in the OS.

Find the Error(s)in the Event Viewer that correspond to the crash/freeze/error message/blue screen, etc.:

Description of the Event Viewer:

Unfortunately, many Windows XP users aren't aware of the Event Viewer, what it is, where it is, how it can help with a problem:
The Event Viewer has logs for everything that happens on the computer. There are three sets of logs: System, Applications and Security. By opening the first two to display the Events, you can look for Errors that correspond to the time of the problem- in your case, the crash.

There are three types of Events in the System and Apps logs:
1. Information (white circle w/blue i): this is just basic documentation of the normal working of the System or Apps.
2. Warnings (yellow triangle w/black exclamation mark) noting some problem at that moment. Warnings usually resolve on their own. If they do not, they become>>>
3. Errors (red circle w/white X- they document something that didn't work or isn't happening as it should. Each Errors has three parts: an ID#, a Source and a Description. By doing a right click> Properties, the Error will open to a screen that can be copied. These three parts taken together can usually lead to cause and resolution.Click to expand...

Start> Run> type in eventvwr
Do this on each the System and the Applications logs:
1. Click to open the log>
2. Look for the Error>
3 .Right click on the Error> Properties>
4. Click on Copy button, top right, below the down arrow
5. Paste here (Ctrl V)

You can ignore the Categories 1 and 2. If you have a recurring Error with same ID#, same Source and same Description, only one copy is needed. You don't need to include the lines of code in the box below the Description, if any.

Hi, I am running Windows 7 Home Premium, and on a daily basis the computer loses signal to the monitor . The event view is Kernal Power Event 41 Critical Crash.
The signal loss happened once a few years ago where I removed the video card and it worked again up until the last few months it has been getting progressively worse, so I got sick of removing the card, so I now find if I shut down the power, it comes good after a while.

- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

I am not suffering any noticeable PC performance issues as a result of this error, but nonetheless, it exists in event viewer and has got me concerned.
Could anybody with troubleshooting experience please offer me some insight into this error? (particularly the meaning of svchost.exe_DiagTrack & ntdll.dll)
Thanks in advance,

A:Event ID 1000, Application Error - svchost.exe_DiagTrack, ntdll.dll

How often does this appear in Event Viewer?
My view on these errors is "no harm = no foul"
In other words, if it's not causing you a problem - then it's not worth looking into.
BUT, this is an error with 2 Windows files - so that (to me) is a concern.
The Exception Code of 0xc000000d is "An invalid parameter was passed to a service or function."
I wonder if it's ntdll.dll passing an invalid parameter to svchost.exe - or is there a 3rd party program involved in this somewhere further down the chain?
svchost.exe is a program that hosts other programs running in the OS.
ntdll.dll is NT Layer DLL - the exact definition of this eludes me, but what it is is a core Windows file
As such, it's protected by several different functions in the operating system and is likely not the problem.
This means (to me) that a 3rd party program is most likely involved here.
Now, let's just confuse things with a caveat here....
I'm a kernel specialist.  That means that I work with system level stuff, and tend to avoid the application level stuff (which this is a part of).
As such I'm not all that familiar with it - but I do know enough to cause a bit of trouble.
Finally, how I troubleshoot these sort of errors is by looking a Windows reports and trying to find patterns - or things that just don't fit quite right (such as older drivers, or unfamiliar programs).  Then I experiment with them (mostly by uninstalling and reinstalling them) to see what impact that has on the errors.
But, as I said in the beginning, if it's not causing you problems then I wouldn't worry about it now.
Good luck!

Note: But when i try to open minidump it shows access denied. I dont know what to do..
Please help me

A:BSOD! Event ID:1033 Dumping Physical Memory

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):
Access denied is because the minidump folder is protected.
To bypass that error, just copy the minidump file to your Desktop
BUT, then you won't have a program to open the minidump file.
It takes a debugger (like Debugging Tools for Windows has)
And then you have to know how to read/interpret/and massage the dump files to get information out of them.
Good luck!

I have a user that has been getting daily blue screens for the past couple of weeks. I did hardware and memory scans and found nothing. The event information that I could find points to some sort of driver problem but not sure what that could be. I have included the last 2 minidump files to see if anyone can point me in the right direction to solving this.

Your issue is with your Symantic security software. particuarly the driver symevent.sys. We have lost count of how often this driver/software has shown up here over the years. Try the following...

1. Update.

2. Uninstall, reinstall, and then update.

You guys are over my head but I don't know who to ask. I have downloaded from the internet powerpoint slides and my notes from my Biology teacher for this semester. I use a shortcut to open these files on my desktop. Now my computer says the shoetcut won't work and my notes and files are gone. I have downloaded a new viewer and that doesn't help. I tried to open my work from the powerpoint viewer program and they won't open. It is just this file. My others open. It worked the last time on March 15. I even restoed my computer to an earlier date. No luck. Any ideas? Need help before my finals. Thanks

A:Powerpoint Viewer problem

Does the file itself still exist?

If the browser is set to open such files with an external application, it may download them to a temporary directory which might be emptied every now and then.

If the presentation exists and is not corrupted, try OpenOffice Impress.

Installed PP Viewer 2007 on machine using Windows XP; use Outlook Express for email. Any .pps file I receive by email refuses to play automatically. The message says I am to go to Folder Options and add an association for the file. I have done that 36 (well, nearly) times. No go.

If I save the .pps file, then play it, PP Viewer works just fine.

Hi maituikas

MS has a big write up of a very similar issue to yours here:

I'd say this would be step 1 to do.

I'm really a novice when it comes to a lot of things, especially programming issues. What I really want to know is if there is an easy to setup database program that I can use for compiling quotations. I'd like to be able to configure it to search for quotations by subject and author. I'm thinking opensource because of it being free, but any other ideas will be considered. And I don't really know how to set up databases, so it's gotta be easy.

I used a USB memory stick a few days ago, since using that, my laptop is blue screening.
The error reported is "Event 1003, category 102".

I'd like some help if possible please on how I can fix this issue.

I've completed some research and have uploaded the Minidump file which should help.
The file extension was originally "*.dmp", but I had to rename the extension to "*.txt" to allow it to be uploaded.

Thanks guys, appreciate your support.
