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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello angelgabbby I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with one of these just skip it and move on to the next one.-AdwCleaner-Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.Close all open programs and internet browsers.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Scan.After the scan is complete click on "Clean"Confirm each time with Ok.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.-Junkware-Removal-Tool-Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".The tool will open and start scanning your system.Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.When they are complete let me have the two reports and let me know how things are running.Gringo

I don't know where to post this, but I'm burning with XP.

I'm burning lots of double sets of CDs lately(all my personal favorite songs) and am looking for the kind of cases that hinge only on one side, Not on both ends, if you know what I mean.

I've bought lots of 2 CD albums(the last one was a Jimmy Buttett double CD) and they always break when you try to get into that 2nd CD on the bottom(that the case hinges on the right for).

For the ones I'm making for myself, I want the other type of double case that is better. Both flaps that the CDs attach to are hinged on the same side(the left side of the case)

Does anybody know where I can get a bulk amount of That type for a good price?
 

A:good source for THIS type double CD caes?

you're on the wrong board for this info..

Hi,
I apologize if this is not the right section, this seemed to be the most suitable.
I am using a 3D Connexion mouse and when I try to execute an executable file for the software configuration, I get the following error?
"Exception: Unable to cast object of type 'System.Configuration.Internal.ConfigurationManagerInternal' to type 'System.Configuration.Internal.IConfigSystem'"
I've talked with the mouse vendor and they have no idea.  My OS is Win7 64.  Does anybody know what this is?

I set up an Outlook account on a new-to-me laptop I had been Is device? default type type of deteremined email by account unable to download email for several months since I didn't have a computer I had been saving the emails I wanted to keep and had planned on downloading them into my new computer After setting up the account it appeared the system automatically downloaded Is default email account type deteremined by type of device? all of my email from the server I know this is default behavior which I turn off So I went through that process double-checked to see that all the email was downloaded and went out to my server I discovered that what I thought were copies of the emails were left on the servier I didn't want that to happen I dug around to find the location that I have used many times to do this and couldn't remember or find the location to make this change So I came to Seven Forums I saw the step-by-step instructions go to the account select it click change click advanced and uncheck the box that says quot Leave a copy of email on server quot When I went to the advanced dialog box for changing accounts I discovered there wasn't any such box I dug around some more decided to subscribe here and ask why mine was different In the mean time since all the email was downloaded to my computer I went back out to my server deleted all the email and purged the trash Then I went back to my Oullook and discovered all the email that I had quot downloaded quot was gone After digging some more and callling my ISP service desk I discovered that I had set up an IMAP account rather than a POP account There was no place to change this in this account so I deleted the account and went through the process again When I got to the account type the only types showing were IMAP and exchange There may have been another option but the important thing is that POP was not one of the options Down at the bottom of the screen was a checkbox to allow custom set up I checked that and discovered there the POP choice I clicked that and the account behaved as I want deleting copies of emails from the server as they are actually downloaded I have set up several Outlook accounts on various computers before This is the first time I have ever had this happen I have never seen the IMAP as a default before but this is also the first time I have installed it on a laptop Was it this way BECAUSE I was adding the account on a laptop There was another account on the computer which I deleted and it was a POP account so it wasn't some sort of previous setting that just followed over All I know for sure is that having this as default cost me a bunch of time and effort and some extremely important emails Any feedback besides quot Pay closer attention to what your various screens say when you are setting up an account dummy quot

A:Is default email account type deteremined by type of device?

Hello Hagridore and Welcome to Seven Forums!

No, I don't believe the problem is because it is a Laptop.
Email can be very confusing to setup with the different protocols such as POP3, IMAP, and MAPI.

Referring to "Outlook" can be confusing, as it can mean different things.
Outlook may mean the MS Office Outlook client email program, or an Outlook.com email address.
MS has created confusion here imho.
When you say "Outlook accounts" do you mean email accounts in the Outlook client program, or Outlook.com email address's, or both ?
What email client program are you using, such as MS Office Outlook, MS Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, ... ?
Also fwiw, for WEB (online) access, Hotmail accounts are being converted to the outlook "WEB format" now...just to make it more fun

From what I know, setting up an Outlook.com (or Hotmail) email address with IMAP does not work without a 3rd party paid solution.
MS uses their own proprietary MAPI protocol (or POP3) for hotmail/outlook email address's accessed in a client program.
If it is possible to use an Outlook(Hotmail) email account with IMAP in a client email program, I would like to know how!

When I delete a POP account (Windows Live Mail) I get a warning about messages that might be lost...
Did you get a warning message when you deleted the POP account?

edit:
I just looked at this again, and see it's in the Office forum.
So, can I assume you are using MS Office Outlook on all the PC's?
If so, what version(s)?
Also, who is the email provider such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, MS, ...?

Hello,

I recently installed a program given to me my a friend who said that it was clean. My own scans also did not pick up anything. After installing I started noticing the following:

Small popups on the lower right hand corner of the open internet explorer windown.
Large popups as a new window.
Google searches or clicked links will lead to ads (cashtitans, rewards vault).
Under processes in task manager, there are 3 iexplorer.exe even though I have only one window open.
Out of screen internet explorer windows (sounds from ads, a bubble telling me that the previous session was restored pointing off my screen area..etc).

I have done the following:
Adaware scan (8.2.6) - no findings
Trend Micro Internet Security Pro 16 scan - no findings

I am running:
Windows Vista
P4 Duo Dell 530

Please advise, your time is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Philip Liu

I recently installed a program given to me my a friend who said that it was clean.Get another opinion. Go to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of that file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.-- Post back with the results of the file analysis.Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.46) and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1Download Link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.Exit MBAM when done.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.If Malwarebytes Anti-Malware results in any error messages, check the Help file's list of error codes within its program folder first. If you do not find any information, please refer to Common Issues, Questions, and their Solutions, Frequently Asked Questions. If the error you are receiving is not in the list, please report it here so the research team can investigate.Some types of malware will target Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools to keep them from running properly. If that's the case, please refer to the suggestions provided in For those having trouble running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster. NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of hartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer. NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.Security CheckDownload Security Check by screen317 from here.Save it to your Desktop.Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.Run Combofix:You may be asked to install or update the Recovery Console (Win XP Only) if this happens please allow it to do so (you will need to be connected to the internet for this)Before you run Combofix I will need you to turn off any security software you have running, If you do not know how to do this you can find out >here< or >here<Combofix may need to reboot your computer more than once to do its job this is normal.You can download Combofix from one of these links.Link 1Link 2Link 31. Close any open browsers or any other programs that are open.2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.When finished, it will produce a report for you. Note 1: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stallNote 2: If you recieve an error "Illegal operation attempted on a registery key that has been marked for deletion." Please restart the computer"information and logs"In your next post I need the following

Hello, I need to know what type my RAM is.. if it is either DDR 400 or something else, people has told me it is DDR 400 due to this screenshot



but it is only running at 200 Mhz, If my ram is DDR 400 how come it is only running at 200 Mhz instead of 400 Mhz

Thanks.
 

A:How do I find out what type my ram is?

Pc3200 and DDR 400 are one and the same.





but it is only running at 200 Mhz, If my ram is DDR 400 how come it is only running at 200 Mhz instead of 400 Mhz

Thanks.Click to expand...

Because it is DOUBLE DATA RATE (DDR) which means it sends the signal twice so 200mhz X2 = 400mhz

For the past few days I've been plagued with adware that has been continually annoying me. Adware along the lines of tr553, ads by jabuticaba, and reimage repair. I've used software such as adwcleaner, malwarebytes, and hitmanpro, which after "cleansing" the adware, still occurs in my browser. I'm running out of options and getting a growing headache :/

To find the type of motherboard, I've gone through the System Information and apparently the "System Model" is supposed to be the motherboard. But all mine shows is "Inspiron 660." I've read that Dell, which is what I have, renames them. My concern involves that KB3133977 Windows update with Asus motherboards. I do my updates manually and have unchecked this update, so I assume I'm safe for now. But would still like to know if I even have an Asus motherboard.

Thanks!!

My computer: Dell Inspiron 660, Win7, 64 bit. (Purchased new in 2013, if that makes any difference.)
 

A:How can I find the type of motherboard I have?

If you go to Dell's support and download site and input your service tag number, it will show you your exact model you have. From there you find your exact system specs which will include your specific mobo.

I am in the progress of making a digital photo album but was wondering if there is a file type that can handle images, videos, and music all in one simple file.
Imagine a .pdf file that handles music and videos that is not limited like .pdfs. It is really hard to explain. This software here is pretty close but not quite there. http://www.3dissue.com/ I want more options than that software though. It seems like I will have to make a new file type.

Hi all

I want to install a second hard drive into my spare drive bay.

However, upon looking online for a hard drive there appears to be more than one type - IDE, ATA etc.

Is there any small piece of software that can tell me? Unfortunately, my PC came from PC world and I did not receive any kind of manual.

For information I have a Packard Bell I-Media 5051 pc, 512RAM, 40GB HD, Intel Celeron 1.8GHZ processor.

Any help would be appreciated.

I found this Packard Bell italian page with your computer's info:

As you can see, your unit comes with a 160 gb hard drive. IDE and ATA will function the same. Take a look:

I don't know if you need more than 160 gb, unless you are doing some serious heave multimedia storage. Good Luck!

Hi I was wondering if there is a way maybe a little program or Windows tool to get the full make and number of my modem whilst it is inoperative It worked fine prior to the installation of Win XP on my machine When I tried to connect to the internet after installation it said something about it being quot not plugged in quot It is an internal modem I believe a HSP MR but that s all I know and I type, XP find modem even it? can't Check though m obviously going to need updated drivers for it During the installation of XP it gave me the option to save a copy of software and hardware that is or may possibly be incompatible I saved this list in the default location but I don t know where that location is or what the file is called I m thinking that this should have some further details about my modem Alternatively if anyone knows where I can Check modem type, even though XP can't find it? get a generic driver for a HSP MR internal modem that works with Windows XP that would suffice I ve sent an e-mail to the guy who sold me the PC but this was months ago so he may not remember have a record Final option would be to open the PC up and see what I can find out Thanks Gram nbsp

A:Check modem type, even though XP can't find it?

Well Gram, I did a search and it looks like thats a PCtel modem, when I went to their website it said that XP was unsupported
I'll continue to look for sutible driver though.

edit: I did find this driver, it's for their micromodem but it could work, wont hurt to try.

Hi,

I just bought a Netgear WG511, and I was having trouble getting it installed on my laptop in both Linux & Windows. Took it back to the shop, where they said it's because my laptop had a 16bit PCMCIA bus, and the card required a 32bit bus.

Without having to call the technical support (it's a big pain to do so), I was wondering if there is a program that can test what bus it has. A preliminary search on google turned up nada.

Hello, TechSpot members... :wave: I was wondering, are there any utilities that will auto-type for you? I want the utility to be standalone and where you can set the interval of time between every key. The Auto-Typers I have worked with before do not work with other programs. I run it in the background and I open up my program but it doesn't work. I also tried ACTool but also it doesn't work externally. Please help!

Unable to type anything, either in a browser or even to log in.   I found an on screen keyboard that let me log in, but cannot type anything beyond that.  The cursor blinks but unable to type anything, not even in an e mail message.   Was working earlier today, something went wrong right after I tried to put in a 2017 open spread sheet.  I tried to make a shortcut and pinned it to the taskbar.  It stopped working after that.    I tried to refresh the PC, but no luck.

A:Unable to type anything

HI @Realtor-Barb, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion Notebook and issues with the Keyboard not working correctly. Change the layout using this document as this might be the issue. Restart when complete and test. If this does not help try this document on troubleshooting the Keyboard. You might want to look at the section marked pressing keys does nothing to uninstall the Keyboard. Try using Microsoft System Restore to before this happened. Please let me know how this goes.You can say thanks for trying to help by clicking the Thumbs Up below.Thanks.

Hello All I was able to install the Tech Preview without a problem including the ability to type info into text boxes As part of my testing I wanted to test out recovery options one of the most important part of the OS to me On the subsequent recovery something went wrong and all I got was a message stating that I had to reinstall the OS Which I did and again the installation routine was smooth and I was able to enter my email address and verification code However this time once inside Windows I could no longer type in any text box the cursor did not move there was just a short flat monotone sound for each key stroke including the Shift Ctrl Alt and arrow keys The mouse on the other hand worked just fine including clicking on and selecting items In an attempt to start from scratch I did a complete restore and all went well until I came to actually start using the desktop On it I found the customized mouse pointer I had done in my original installation and feared that whatever had caused my typing not to function would carry over to the 'new' installation And sure enough the keyboard only 'beeped' at me whenever I tried to Type 10 In Win To Unable use it nothing appeared in the text Unable To Type In Win 10 boxes Unable To Type In Win 10 So in order to 'really' start from scratch I did a clean install of Windows from its DVD and was able to type into text boxes without a problem I then did the full install from the Win Technical Preview DVD that I know is good And now having been Unable To Type In Win 10 away from the laptop to type this it went into sleep mode and when I woke it the Password screen came up Now I can not enter my Password and the page shows it to be Locked Only restarting the computer allows me to enter my Password but the keyboard still does not work within Windows Tech Preview This message was composed on my desktop computer The computer that the Tech Preview is installed on is a Dell Latitude D originally built in It has a Core Duo Intel processor running GHz with GB of RAM a GB HDD split in to a GB Boot Drive and a roughly GB Data Drive Prior to running the Tech Preview I ran Win HP SP Bit OS and the laptop ran perfectly fine I've checked Device Manager and no exclamation points or red flag icons were found I then tried to run SFC and again ran into the same old problem even in a DOS box with Admin Privileges I'm locked out I say that because I'm more and more drawn to that conclusion I just don't know how to rectify it What is even more puzzling - and frustrating - is that a full reformat and reinstall doesn't reset everything back to a clean slate - its remembered my custom settings including an extra large black pointer arrow So whatever triggered the locked slate is being remembered as well And now for the final clue It was suggested that I try the on-screen keyboard which I did and it works perfectly I've now been through all the settings in the Ease of Access Center and can find no setting that disables the built-in keyboard or locks the on-screen keyboard in place Any other ideas I can try to break this locked Password Protected Account I've already tried to create a second account but when I tried it demanded a Password but the computer again demanded a Password to proceed Any and all help appreciated and responded to Regards BearPup

A:Unable To Type In Win 10

I don't know why you're having trouble with passwords.
If you're in an MSC account, sign out and sign into a local account without password.
I never have a password on my machines and 8, 8.1 and 10 are no different.
As for your keyboard, your guess is as good as mine.

The second post here,

should answer your question about whether it supports AHCI or not (hint: it does, but only partially).

As far as a bios update goes, forget about it. With Abit going out of business more than 4 years ago and their site shutting down, personally I wouldn't trust any site that claims to have a bios for that board. Going to have to live with whatever bios version it has on it.

I've noticed that when I am typing anything in the Search window in Google Chrome, all of a sudden nothing happens or everything stops. I can't type anymore and my blinking cursor is gone. In order to get it back and functioning, I have to click on the mouse each time it stops. At the same time, I've noticed that the border around the window changes color when this happens. I have also noticed that in the Start Task Manager, the CPU usage jumps up momentarily when this happens. I happens on any webpage where typing is permitted. I notice it more when I am trying to type in a web address or URL address at the top of the page. What is causing this and how can I find out what it is?

The OS is Windows XP

What would cause this to happen?

Press Tab instead of enter when you want to move to a password or other field in a form. Pressing enter pretty much means that all fields are complete (like pressing "Send" or "Submit" yourself).

I'm using Windows XP and I'm having a problem with my wireless. I can't seem to pick an EAP type from the Authentication tab when adding a new preferred wireless network in the Wireless Network Connection Properties menu. I can enter all the SSID, encryption, etc just fine, but when I try to pick the EAP type (I need PEAP) from the dropdown menu on the Authentication tab, it doesn't work. There aren't any options in the dropdown menu to pick from.

It used to work just fine, but one day it just stopped and when I tried looking at the wireless settings I encountered this problem. Not sure what could have caused it.

Ok people. i''m new there and i really need the assistance of someone who know windows xp.

Yesterday everytime i switch on my computer i got a message saying that

windows cannot find C:\windows\sdrive, make sure you type the name correctly", and right after that, in my drive C, i noticed the apperance of an executable file name "msfk.exe" !

I formated my pc and install a new windows xp hoping to get rid of this error message but this morning when i wake up, the message poped up once again.. What is causing this??

Can someone help me plz?
 

A:windows cannot find sdrive! make sure you type the name correctly

It certainly shouldn't be there after a format unless you reinstalled a defective program.

But if you install and run Startup Control Panel or
Startup Control Panel (Exe version for Vista), you will be able to control what starts with your machine and remove that program's startup.

I've just upgraded my laptop to Win10 (did my desktop several months ago). The laptop is unable to take input to the Search the web and Windows task bar. I've searched the web, but all I've found was references to killing and restarting Search from the task manager, but there is no Search running. Also any time I try to start Cortana, I can see it start in Task Manager, but it then disappears. So the short of it is can't start Cortana and there is no Search running to restart. How do I get this feature to work?

Maybe this is relevant:
Solved Re-installing Cortana - Windows 10 Forums
and there are a good number of other such threads- worth doing a search.

You could try this:
1. Open run command, type PowerShell and press enter to open it
2. Right click on its icon on taskbar and select Run as administrator
3. Paste the below script
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
4. Wait for the Powershell to complete the process, ignore any errors if displayed in the window.

Does your start menu work?
How many icons do you see down the side of the Cortana box (if you can display it - Win key + S)?

Beyond that, as you upgraded, there is a possibility of something being incompatible. What happens if you do a clean boot?

Please clarify "unable to take input to the Search the web and Windows task bar."
- I assume you mean the search box displayed on the taskbar. Please advise if not.

I have a office pro plus 2007 version of word. I have been using it since about July and it has worked fine. It is not a trial version. I purchased it through school. It for some reason will no longer let me type anything. I am able to type in help but not in print layout view, or other views. I am able to type in draft view but it doesn't show up in print layout view or print preview. I am unable to see any cursor. Whatever I type is invisible but shows up in undue and the word counter counts it. I have checked to see if it was page protected and it is not. Any ideas on how to fix this.

Don't mess around anymore on it, it will only get worse. It sounds just like what i am dealing with and that Windows Police Pro. Sit back and be patient for the mods to help. I can tell you that you need to post all the error messages it gives you with opening programs, OS and other info about computer.If you are on the computer, shut down and restart in safe mode with networking, doesn't seem to load in safe mode atleast. but you still won't be able to use programs will need some moderator magic for that.

Hi,
I recently bought a Samsung T3 SSD, which has a USB type-c port and comes with a USB type-c to USB 3.0 (type a) cable. After some messing around with UEFI, secure boot, et. al I finally managed to install Ubuntu 16.04 on this external SSD and have been happily using it for some weeks now (i did not want to repartition my 512GB ssd in the 9550, not enough free space).
If I press F12 when the laptop boots up, the external SSD shows up in the boot menu, it just works.
To get an additional type-a USB port I bought a (well rated, not cheap) type-c on type-c USB cable. To my surprise the SSD will not show up in the 9550's boot menu when using type-c.
I already changed bios scan mode to 'thorough' like suggested elsewhere, without success.
What can I do to boot via type-c?
Thx!

A:XPS 15 (9550): Unable to boot from USB 3.1/Type-C Device

I'm writing this on a Dell XPS 15 9550 tlhat booted from and is currently running Ubuntu 16.4.1 from the USB-c port.
My solution is inelegant, but faster than any USB thumb drive I have tried.  I am using a StarTech USB 3.1 (Type C) cable that converts to SATA III on the other end where I have a 120GB Kingston SSD connected.
Obviously, I can only use this at a desk or table, but I have yet to find an acceptably fast USB thumb drive.  I'm thinking about doing this from an SDHC or SDXC drive now if I can verify that
a) the 9550 can boot from SD
b) Ubuntu 16.04.1 can see and boot from the SD interface.
I'm pretty sure both are true given the little research I've done on the matter so far.

Apparently, my (HKLM:RUN) programs doesn't work on startup. I've used the guide and Googled some answers, yet they failed to work. I used Ccleaner to check what was wrong. It seems that the programs I wanted running on startup shows that it is enabled. I even checked with MSCONFIG and it showed that it was enabled. I restarted my computer and wasn't able to run it. What was able to work though was the Startup User way. I was wondering why my original HKLM:Run wasn't working.

If this helps, I'm using a modified shell called BlackBox. I don't know if this affects it or not. A friend of mines uses it and was abled to have Skype start up normally. When I changed my shell back to original (the Windows default), my programs ran perfectly normal.

Hi,

I am attempting to login to my laptop running Vista Home Premium, when I get to password screen I cannot type or move the cursor via the mouse pad.

If I switch off and back on select f8 I can move using the cursor keys on the menu but when it goes back to password screen I still cannot type.

Any ideas either on how to fix or bypass p'word screen would be appreciated.

Recent activity on laptop was installing free version of avast.

Many thanks
G

I recently installed Windows 7 64bit on the second partition of my main HDD. It worked flawlessly until I restarted earlier today. Now whenever I boot into Windows 7 the login screen shows up with my account, but when i attempt to enter my password the keystrokes are not registering.

I have tried using all 8 usb ports in the back of my comp, but the keyboard still does not work. My usb mouse works fine. I can also boot and login to Windows XP, on the other partition with no problems, and the keyboard works fine.

Any insight or help with this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe a keyboard driver?

My Notepad on Windows 7 computer stopped working. Were using recently to type info for transfer to website.

Note pad no longer shows a cursor and will not allow to type or open files or anything else. Shows blank screen.

Don't know what happened or what to do.

Hi all
I have recently bought a new desktop PC running Windows Home Premium. I have a 2 year old laptop which I was using before but now I want to create a Lan using an ethernet cable between my new desktop and laptop. Both computers recognise a Lan cable is plugged in but when trying to set the Network location to home I am unable to. I just want to move files off the laptop without doing it over the wireless as this would take alot longer. How do I change this?
Thanks for the help

A:Unable to Change Network Location Type

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You may find some useful information here: Networking home computers running different versions of Windows

To transfer files easily you might consider buying an Easy Transfer cable to connect the two computers. Having said that, using your wireless connection shouldn't be that much slower.

To use an ethernet cable for a LAN, you need to connect both computers to your router rather than to each other.

This is weird occasionally as I open up firefox and go to enter text into any field I notice that I am unable to type Instead what happens is if I hit a key such as F which is linked to a windows shortcut for files the files search menu pops up even though i never pressed the shortcuts 8 unable to type Windows - keyboard locked windows key at any time This problem isn't just limited to firefox once it is started I have a very hard time getting it to being able to type normally So if there is no shortcut linked to that key there is no input otherwise i get the shortcuts H - share Q - search etc Restarting doesn't always work sometimes all it takes is excessive clicking of a search bar other times just closing an internet broswer Pressing the windows key does nothing and I haven't been able to find a concrete fix for the issue Is there a way to fix and or avoid this completely

A:Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts locked - unable to type

Here are some things to check..

1) Reset Firefox - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...-most-problems

2) Open Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region > Change input methods

**Verify you are using the correct keyboard layout.

3) It is possible to completely disable Windows shortcuts by adding a registry value.

To disable the Windows logo key:

a) Open Regedit

b) navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout

c) Name: "Scancode Map"

Type: REG_BINARY (Binary Value)

Value Data: "00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 00 00 5B E0 00 00 5C E0 00 00 00 00"

d) Log-out to apply changes
