No sound no matter what

Q: No sound no matter what

Here is the problem I just recently was given a laptop. I was told that it was hooked up to a tv with HDMI but, there was sound on the laptop. I am running Windows 7 Premium HP Pavilion g7-1318dx Notebook PC
Serial Number: 6CF2085XDS Product Number: A7A43UAR . I have no sound with just notebook speakers. I have went to the HP driver download site and tried to download the audio drivers. I receive a warning " The Hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package. Install will now abort." There are 3 Audio downloads on the Hp website none work. The speaker Icon down by the clock with a red X on it when you do a mouse roll over it says no speakers or headphones are plugged in. I have tried headphones still no sound. I have also tried to the windows trouble shooter and it says it detects no problems. Play back devices is only showing Digital Audio (HDMI) High definition Audio device not plugged in. Recording says there are no audio devises are installed in. I have tried everything any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: No sound no matter what

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.)

A: No sound no matter what

I think that you need an extra lead because HDMI gives picture only. The lead I have has a mini stereo jackplug at one end which goes into the computer's headphones socket and two phono plugs (white and yellow) at the other to plug into the TV's audio input at the back. You should then be able to work out how to set up the sound via Control Panel.

I got so many problems with my computer and my sound is one of them.

My computer always starts out with sound but seconds later, my computer keeps saying that there is no audio device. I already searched for a driver for my audio device, but it rarely works every time. Yesterday, it worked, but now it doesn't.

The last time my sound worked perfectly was back in February, and I should have gotten this fixed but I'm in school and mostly use my laptop at school. So I had little time to get my computer somehow fixed with the many problems it has.

This is my first time here so, there I go.

A:No Sound, No Matter How Many Driver Reinstallations I Did

On board sound or a sound card? If a sound card, what brand name is it?

No onboard sound doesn't require separate power

Not likely, if everything else is working

Yes, in fact your system will run a little better taking some of the load off the cpuClick to expand...

Please read this thread and post back..
Most likely the sound is disabled in the bios.

I Need Not up not working making weird ticking noises and it was confirmed that I needed a new one Now I got Sound Not Working, Not Matter What I Try. I Need Serious Help People. a hard drive with the same RPM and GB BUT wasn't the exact same as the one that came with it Now if that causes any problems then please say so and what problems does it course I formatted the Hard Drive and Partitioned it as well also did all the CD's made for Windows System Recovery Which are System Recovery DVD Windows Recovery Media for Widows Products Disc of and of cause the second Disc also and well finally Application and Driver Recovery CD Everything seemed fine but the intial Start-Up takes longer than the original Hard Drive but saying that after the Start-Up the laptop runs smoothly and nicely Normally All my stuff like Anti-Virus stuff was all finally installed onto my computer still no problems until it occurred that no sound at all was playing but I hadn't really noticed then so then I was did the Windows Updater and installed everything on that even the latest Sound Codec for it Then I restarted my computer I also installed the latest BIOS for it and that didn't work either Now I keep getting this stupid Preparing to Configure Windows every time on load up and there is NO SOUND either but the Sound Meter is moving plus the speakers are not done in either because it doesn't make weird noises or off sound cause it doesn't make any sound anyways and I have done everything possible I did all what HP said what to do which usually solves the problem and also looked at many forums many saying what HP said but still doesn't work and also did HP System Recovery to set it to factory settings and that still doesn't work at all I honestly don't know what to do at all people its a very peculiar problem and don't have any clue in how to solve it I'm pretty experienced in computers so I'm willing to listen to anything So what shall I do to solve this problem Shall I do the whole Partitioning and Formatting again or does that have nothing to do with it Also checked if it was muted and it isn't and also saw if the device was in yellow and well it wasn't

A:Sound Not Working, Not Matter What I Try. I Need Serious Help People.

UPDATE:
I have redone the Reocvery Discs and hasn't fixed my main problem at all.

But it has fixed the annoying 'Preparing to Configure Windows' thing popping up and the start up is roughly how it used to be. But still no sound at all did all the things again and still nothing. :S Have no clue what so ever. So I'm hoping you people can give me ideas on how to fix it. Thx.

Strange... I went to play a movie this morning on my computer for my daughter and windows media player came up blank, but sound was there to be heard. I tried the same flick in media player classic and then in real player but got the same results. I tried diferent movies, but got the same results. It seems as though something has disabled all video capabilities on my puter. What can be done? Thanks in advance for any advice.
 

A:Getting sound but no picture in any of my media players, no matter what movie...

Most likely that the files need a newer codec. Try these codecs and see if it helps.

Hey! If my computer has DDR2 RAM in it, does it matter what kind of memory is on the gaming video card?? Should it be DDR2 as well, or can it be DDR3? I just wanted to make sure.
 

A:Does this matter?

The memory type on the graphics card is independent of the memory type in RAM. It can be DDR3 even if you have DDR2 RAM.

Hi i'm clearly new here and was hopping to get some thoughts.I was told that a strong enough magnet would disrupt my wireless cam and was wondering if that was true?
 

A:Help on this matter

Hello and welcome to TSG.
Well im no expert on magnets or magnetism, but as far as i am aware anything to do with magnets (either natural, manufactured or electromagnetic), and anything electrical should always be avoided as much as possible. Even such minor things as "coiling up" excess cables can effectively turn themselves into electromagnets and thus disrupt electrical fields. So i would say yes it is possible. Whether the magnetic field disrupts the actual signal or the cam itself, i cannot say.

A:what is matter

I think WINRE_DRV and System_DRV are 2 hidden partitions required on GPT disks that are used with Windows. They were likely placed there during the Windows installation by default.

In that situation, you don't want C to be active.

As far as I know, you can convert a GPT disk to MBR, but I think you have to remove all partitions first.

Not sure about the above as I don't use GPT disks.

I have 4X512 dimms of Kingston, PC3200 400MHz, dual channel mode.

Because they are in AMD environment (Athlon 64 3200+, 2GHz, Asus A8V-Deluxe s.939), my timings are just 3-3-3-8. Also its 2T(instead of 1T), 333MHz(instead of 400). They told my that I cannot do anything to change these numbers, because I have 4 sticks in amd platform.

So, I m thinking of buy 2 new kingstons of 1GB each(2X1GB), replacing the existings 2X512. After that I ll have totally 3 GBs of ram (2X512, 2X1024) Of course I ll put them in the right position so that I ll have dual channel mode(1st module:512, 2nd:1024, 3rd:512, 4rth:1024).

The queries are:
Is it a good idea to make such a movement?
Will timings be better? Will I have T1 and 400MHz?
How much improvement shall I see? 20%? 30%? 50%?

can't find where the camera is stored on my system. Any advice welcome. I never tried the camera until I changed to windows 8 so I am not sure if it ever worked.

A:Cannot run Chkdsk no matter what I try

Maybe is it smart if you run an online scan.
Sometimes find an online Virus scan more than the standard Virus scan.
Also think I that it is smart when you have done, that you make a DDS log in the sub forum Am I infected.?
Tip: It is not really smart when you run a Hijackthis tool without experiences.

A:WMM glitching no matter what I do! :(

Are you using the WMM that comes with Vista or is this the Windows Live Essentials WMM? If not the latter, I think you are eligible for it with Vista and you might try that version. Otherwise there is Pinnacle VideoSpin which is free and you might find does as much as you need without having to pay for a more capable editor.

I'm at my wits end - it didn't take long!

Fixing up an old Intel 845EPT2 for a neighbor. I did a Reinstall of XP, installed all Drivers straight off the Intel Website, and no matter what, there's no Audio.

"No Device Installed" even though the Soundmax appears in System / Devices.

I have double checked Audio is enabled in the BIOS.

I even threw in an old Soundblaster Live!, turned off Audio in the BIOS, installed Drivers and it did the same thing.

I'm running an SFC / SCANNOW .

The weird thing is that it had Audio before {along with a million viruses, which is why I re-installed}

uninstall all your drivers in device manager, go to your C drive and program files, make sure all files related to the drivers, software is deleted, also, do a add remove any software that may use those same sound drivers that you previously uninstalled. turn off machine, take your card out, if you're using onboard, disable in bios, start up, let windows load, if its a sound card installed in a pci slot a "new hardware" window should pop up, install drivers through that dialog box. If its an onboard sound device just simple restart after windows has started up and recognized no sound devices or drivers installed, go back to bios, enable sound, start up, reinstall drivers and software....I hope this helps as I just had this problem last night and had to figure out how to fix it, GL

Hello there I hope I am posting in the right place First off the spec of my laptop AMD Athlon tm II P Dual-Core Processor GHz GB RAM ATI Mobility Radeon HD I run Windows -bit The problem is that I cant seem to run games without getting lag For instance Dragon Age- the only requirement that my laptop might not meet is the processor dual core minimum however I can even top that I can make graphics the best quality or make it the worst it lags almost the same Oblivion that thing requires a Pentium yet I still get lag again the same situation where I can put the best or the worst graphics out? lag is there what, way no matter no Constant on The lag that I am talking about is not terrible for instance the games run at around or more FPS judging by the eye and every once in a while drops to around It is not much but definitely makes the playing experience much less enjoyable I do turn off all of the background programs I even use this little program game booster The hard drive is not crammed to the top I even separated the drive to a few parts for games and for Windows So yea any tips Or am i doomed to play in this ridiculous situation where no matter what Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out? graphic settings you put on you still get lag PS When games are turned on the ventilator blows out quite hot air nbsp

A:Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out?

How big is the hard drive? How big are the partitions? When you partition a hard drive, you waste a lot of space and slow down its data access. Something you never want to do with a laptop

I know that with a cassette tape, when you go down to the fourth or fifth generation, you can really hear the difference. The sound gets quite muffulled.

But what about CD-Rs?

Can I go down four or five generations and still maintain the same sound quality. I know there are rumours that digital CD-Rs make exact copies, but I thought I'd ask the tech gang to make sure.

Thanks,

Hi i have done a search and not found the answer to my question so i hope someone can help me.

I have installed windows 7 to my main desktop computer and i got the 100 Mb partition, now i have installed win 7 to my laptop the drive was already partitioned on when i look at the drives i have not got the 100 Mb partition, after the search i did on this forum i see the reason i did not get the small partition is because the drive was already partitioned, and this is normal.

But my question is will the instalation work or like this or do i need to remove all the partitions and start again.

Hope someone can advise me.

A:Does it matter about the 100 MB partition

Hi sam49, Im assuming the laptop is booting? If so then you have nothing to worry about

For peace of mind though, please upload a screenshot of Disk Management (search for it in the Start Menu) and we will be able to tell you exactly what is going on.

Hi,
its all started when onw day i opend my PC, after 5 min freezes.
In the first place i thought it was somethign wrong with a softaware...so i started to unistall all programs i have one by one to see the performance...nothing happend.
I have even changed RAM..nothing happend.SO finally thought that maybe it was the HDD.

So i bought a new one (Maxtor 40GB) and now when i am trying to install windows 2000 it freezes again in the installation part (you know the blue screen)!!!
What else can be wrong???

thanks for any help.

P4,256RAM,2.4Ghz.
 

A:Pc freezes no matter what i do

sounds like mine, removed everything still happened, BIOS was the problem - it changed some of the settings itself. look at ram spped in bios - mine was set to wrong speed. maybe this will solve your problem, it fixed mine.

Hi. I posted a long rambling thing a little while ago because I'm looking at a new laptop. Let me cut out all that stuff and get to one point I'm really curious about -- does 64 bits matter?

I know some people say this is just around the corner, but is it a revolution or just hype?

Obviously I am also curious whether there is a point in waiting to buy a new computer until Intel goes 64 bit -- but the computer I have now is ancient and can't run anything anymore, so I probably don't have that luxury.

Still, I wonder what 64 bits actually means. It's my feeling that 32 bits is doing a pretty decent job and going from 8 --> 16 and 16 --> 32 were the real revolutions. But maybe someone has a different take.

I have GigaByte 8I955 Royal which specs 1.8 volt for the ram.

When I went to Newegg.com's memory configuration tool, it comes back with all different voltage rams for me range from 1.8 1.9 to 2.1 volt.

Can I use higher volt ram in my motherboard?

Your help is appreciated!

A:Ram Volt Does it matter

You need to check QVL of compatible ram for your motherboard.
1.8v is the motherboard default ram voltage, check in bios to see if you have the option to change the ram voltage.
If you don't have the correct voltage for the ram you will run into booting problems

I think this looks like a driver issue. If you know how to run the driver verifier function, try that. If you've never run it before, be careful... you can get stuck in a BSOD/reboot loop. Here is a tutorial for running driver verifier.

If the driver verifier function makes you too nervous, you could manually search for updated drivers for all of your hardware by going to the manufacturers' websites, one by one, and getting the latest drivers.

Dear Carrie:

Sorry to tell you, but it seems like you must find a fresh new XP cd in order to reinstall it, as well as your previously installed software (provided you had backed up things before the disaster).

If you at least were able to start XP and some other kind of errors were jumping out, maybe something could be done. But don't guide by my opinion only. Here at the forums are some pretty cool geniuses which could help you better than me.

Sorry for not being of much more help

You mean if the program is on the SSD with the OS? Id guess so since it will write the data faster, but I am not expert and on top of that I don't have a SSD. But also a GOOD CPU will play a good roll in that.

Hi I have matter no loud CPU what Fan a custom computer I built and I m having real problems with how loud it had gotten Recently my friend gave me his old processor P GHz with HT and its running CPU Fan loud no matter what on my new mother board ASUS P CPU Fan loud no matter what NSLI and it has been running so loud that it keeps me up I have to open my window to let in degree air to slow the fan down There was one fan already in the case that was sucking air out on the panel side and i recently purchased another one to put in the back near the cpu to blow air in and it made about Zero difference and its putting a good amount of air in My heat sink is just a intel that came with the CPU The fan speeds run as follows at rpm when the CPU is C This is relatively quiet but still can easily tell that the computer is running but this is with the window open haha once i close the window the temp is still at C but it will run at rmp- rmp which is enough to wake me up note these temps are mostly unaffected by cpu usage when i run transcode for my converts an avi file into wmv as fast possible to play through media center If the window is open no sound and the cpu is under rather a heavy load but in the same respect if the window is closed and I m not even using my computer its like a highway in my room The Computer itself isn t in a confined area either it is out in the open in a place where air circulates easily So my though that was maybe i need to mess with the settings in BIOS since i have never really touched them in new computer Any suggestions on what to do whether it is through the BIOS or just how I placed the fans in the case thankyou nbsp

A:CPU Fan loud no matter what

You may be able to change the thresholds for temperature in the bios on whether it kicks the fan into high speed or not.

I'd also suggest taking that fan you put in the back of the case and reverse it so it blows air out, thats traditionally how its done, and makes more sense with the air dynamics inside a case. Fans on the side panels or the front typically blow air into the case, so I'd suggest doing that as well.

You can pull the heatsink off the processor (with the comp shut down of course) and clean it off with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and reapply some thermal paste. Artic Silver seems to be the consensus for doing that, but you can also get away with the thermal paste Radio Shack sells if you must.

A final thing you could do is get an aftermarket heatsink and fan that will run quieter and cool better.

Next, I know this has you a bit miffed, I've been down your road of computer frustration at one time or another, but your going to have to give us a little bit more information.

How about a small list of all your components?
What type of case your trying to install of this in?
What is your power supply, and what is it's rating?
What Operating System are you using here?

Maybe a slight "step by step" of what you did prior to uninstalling the I.D.E. DVD drive, through that, to installing the SATA DVD drive. If your suspicions are true, and you think that you missed something minor, doing a small 'step by step" thing sometimes takes care of these sort of thing.

A:size does matter

gettingthere said:

pardon?

to reduce the size of an image you just need an image editor of some description, the professional app of choice is of course photoshop, which has an extremely useful 'save for web' function that performs this task.

The more widely available (ie cheaper) app is paintshop pro, which you can d/l a demo from jasc.com.

I wouldn't be surprised however, if you existing kodak easyshare had some facility to reduce the (physical) size of an image, is there an option on one of the menus or toolbars to reduce the pixel size and/or the dpi resolution? You may find your photo is currently in several megapixels; the default maximum for the camera that took the photo. If it's just to be used for browsing onscreen, eg on a webpage or similar, then it only needs to be 72pdi which would save a massive amount of file space.

Compaq CQ50-103nr Laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium.

You can see the Wireless User Guide here. My understanding is that the wireless light is orange when the wireless adapter is disabled and blue when enabled. If I press the wireless button, it turns blue for about a half second and back to orange.

I have loaded the drivers furnished by Compaq and I have no exclamation points in Device Manager.

My guess is the wireless adapter is kaput; but, before I spend any money, I would like to know what others here might know about this that I might not.

The power button for this laptop is at center top of the keyboard and the wireless button is just a half-inch to the right of it. It has the wireless symbol on it, lit in orange and it finds no network although I do have a working wireless router on which another laptop here is currently working.
 

A:Wireless LAN indicates it's off no matter what

Unfortunately, a non-working wireless adapter and a wireless light which is permanently amber is a widespread fault with HP & Compaq laptops (Google Search brings up loads of forum posts to prove how widespread it is). My grandaughter's packed up on her Compaq last year and it defied all attempts by me to fix it so I bought her a plug-in USB wireless adapter which solved the problem.

In my daughter's case, the built-in wireless adapter wasn't even listed in Device Manager, which means it isn't even being detected, which usually means the device has failed. Your Device Manager is probably not listing it either (hence no errors are shown).

If the laptop is still under warranty, HP will repair it free of charge (or at least that is what I read on the various forums last year).

i think you are going to have to take the side off and check for any loose connections. make sure if theres a video card that its seated properly .
if you have no success, unplug it and pop the battery out for at least 20 minutes to reset the cmos.
you might need to tweak the bios setup options afterwards.

goodluck and post back

i used to have dual boot windows vista and ubuntu and i got rid of ubuntu and the grub boot loader (by using vista recovery cd and using the command bootrec.exe /FixMbr) which i replaced with the vista boot loader from the recovery cd i made but for some reason i dont have BIOS anymore. at all. and when i press f9 to load my recovery partition it gives me the error
PXE E61 media test failure, check cable
PXE M0F exiting pxe ROM

then it loads windows vista and i cannot reformat my computer because of this. i really need to get this done as soon as possible i cannot express how grateful i would be to whoever can help me solve this problem. thankyou.
 

A:URGENT matter.

Vista and the boot-loader have nothing to do with BIOS.

Try a PS/2 keyboard if you are using USB.

You might try resetting CMOS. The machine is trying to boot from the network, possibly because it can't find any OS.

Having seen the required specs for half life 2, I've decided to upgrade my current ram and purchase an AMD 2500 processor - my current system is a s follows, AMD 1700, 512 DDR ram (generic), softmodded radeon 9500 128 np, W2000k and a 40 gig HD, not top notch kit but enough to play any current game at optimal configuration.
My question is this, my current 2100, 266mhz generic ddr ram works pretty much adequatly and has given me no cause for complaint but on checking prices, find that higher specc'd ram is'nt as expensive as I'd assumed - would purchasing 333mhz or 400mhz ram offer significant increase in performance or are these specs only relevant to hard core modders?

I would appreciate if someone would explain the significance of DVD regions. I rented an old movie from my local library. When I tried to play it on my Windows 7 machine, there was a message that the DVD was purchased in region 1, my computer DVD drive was set for region 2, and I needed to change the region. Since there is a limited number of region changes that can be made, I decided not to make the change and did not watch the movie.
 
Would someone please explain the technical background as to why regions matter? And why did Microsoft decide to limit the number of region changes for Windows 7?

A:DVD regions - why do they matter?

1.  Just read what Wikipedia has to say about region codes yourself.
 
2.  If you use VLC Media Player it will play any region code DVD without a fuss.

I have a xfx 6200 with OpenGl 1.5.

Will I have problems running games because I don't have version 2.0?
 

Relevancy 36.12%

Would both these setups work?



Code:
1. WAN <-> "modem" <-> Switch <-> PC's & Router

(The PC's and the router is connected to the switch)

or

2. WAN <-> "modem" <-> Router <-> Switch <-> PC's
The "modem" delivers one (dynamic) IP adress and the router is configured with (DHCP-setup) to accept any IP from WAN, and has its own DHCP server turned on to deliver IP adresses on the LAN.

A:Where to place router in LAN - does it matter?

Option 1, 'WAN <-> "modem" <-> Switch <-> PC's & Router' is logically equivalent to 'WAN <-> "modem" <-> Switch <-> PC's' so if you want to use any router functionality, you need to use option 2.

With the router before the switch you are able to effectively use the firewall capabilities of the router. I don't know how that would be possible with #1 since the router can be bypassed. With #1, you can leave the Router out of the picture and not change much at all from a network/security perspective.

The only reason to put a switch before a router is if you want a network that is exposed to the internet without the router in the way... But that would be something like:

WAN <-> "modem" <-> Exposed Switch <-> Router <-> Safe Switch <-> PCs

If you want something like this, don't put anything important on the PCs attached to the exposed switch.

I was reading in a Pc Gamer mag. and one of thier suggestions (for better gaming performance) was to turn the Grafic apature size to 1/2 your video card ram meaning, if you have lets say a 256mb card to set the apature size to 128mb in the bios? They didn't give a reason for this, can anyone tell me why I would want to do this? And would it make that big of diffrence? My first impression was that it had something to do with Virtual memory tapping, but i'm a *****...LOL can someone please enlighten me?? Oh I know there was alot of discussion on hyperthreading but would I be smart to turn it off as well when gaming?

Thx friends, Power
 

A:Apature size, does it matter that much?

Apperture size is the amount of system that you're willing to let the VGA card use for AGP texturing.

Now it's quite hard to fine a single answer on that matter. Some say it should half the size of your system memory, some say it should be equal to or half the VGA memory, some say Saturn needs to be aligned with Jupiter for it to work, etc.

If your VGA card has a lot of onboard Ram, you're not likely to be very affected by AGP apperture. Set it to something not too small, & it should not be more then half your system memory, so if you have 512 mb of Ram, set it to 256 max ( I believe the max setting for AGP apperture is 256 mb anyways ).

Those are both pretty much overkill for what you do.

We knew it would happen sooner or later, but maybe all hope isnt lost.I would think that because mozilla is open source the mozilla foundation will keep releasing fixes in new versions.But this sucks.

A:We knew it was only a matter of time.

As a prediction, I am not sure how good it is, since malware will continue to target the dominant browser, IE. I also note that Mozilla seems much more able and willing to issue patches in a timely manner than has been IE hitherto.

As you can see from my post just below this one my computer is fried. My roomate has a Intel computer and I was wondering if i can take the RAM from my AMD system and put it into his computer. Or if this will cause a conflict with hardware.
 

A:Does Intel or AMD matter when installing RAM

No there is really no such thing as Intel ram and AMD ram. It depends on if the two computers use the same memory type. A new computer uses DDR2 while an older computer would use DDR1 and an even older computer would use SDRAM. A good ram dimm would probably be interchangeable between a new Intel computer and a new AMD computer. A computer's motherboard must be able to accommodate the ram's type, speed and voltage specifications to be able to work in that motherboard.

When copying the image from OEM HDD over to the new SSD i struggled getting the same order for the partitions .
Disk 0 is the new SSD (windows 8.1)
Disk 1 is the OEM HDD (which I plan using for storage)

Does the order of the partitions matter ? and if so , what order to use and how to change order ?

A:Does the order of the partitions matter ?

The order of the partitions does not matter. What matters that the drive where your OS is stored boots up first. This you verify in the BIOS. Disk 0 must boot up first.

A:Is Start Menu really matter?

Yep, some people dislike unexpected change, especially when they don't see the immediate value to this change.
However, once you get over the initial knee-jerk reaction, I think that it is easy to get used to the way Windows 8 works.

I have seen regular people using newly bought laptops with Windows 8 as if it was Windows 7 (because they haven't learned about all the new capabilities yet), and they were quite happy with their laptops (they mostly noticed that it boot faster and that the ultrabook are much lighter than regular laptops).

I was not alone when Microsoft .NET Framework 4, bundled in a Windows Update this week, refused to install. It may be common knowledge by now, but the issue can be resolved by downloading the program from Microsoft Download Center: Search Results.

But does it matter? I don't fully understand what the .NET Framework programs do but have always accepted the advice to retain them all on my computer, not just the latest version. However, when installing Version 4, I realised that none of the earlier versions is on my laptop (at least, none appear alongside Version 4 in the Programs and Features list). I've apparently, then, been using my laptop for 7 months (internet, basic officework, media storage, nothing grand) without the help of .NET Framework and with no problems.

So do I really need it?

A:Installing .NET Framework 4 (But Does It Matter?)

Nope.

I was getting along with 3.5 (default of W7) just fine for months (almost a year actually) with no problems.

It basically comes down to:
Install it if you want, or wait until you need it.

So long story short I woke up one morning to find that my computer s explorer exe file would not open at all This problem has been going on for well over Explorer.exe I what not start will do no matter a month and I ve been dealing with it by running things through task manager At this point I ve absolutely had it and I need to get this fixed and I d hope to resolve it without having to re-install windows There were no hardware changes just newly installed games from Steam and that s it All I use this computer for is homework and gaming every now and then Explorer exe when started manually will only open in task manager for a moment and then slip away into the darkness once again I get no error messages at all All I get when I boot up my computer is a black screen no task bar and just my cursor Below I have listed everything I have tried so Explorer.exe will not start no matter what I do far and nothing has even brought me close to a solution I m hoping someone can help me because I ve spent countless hours searching the internet and trying new solutions and I m almost giving up hope Please for the love of all that is sane in this world ing help me This is on Windows on an Asus G laptop Interventions so far Starting manually through task manager Starting in safe mode Numerous malware virus scans TDSSKiller CCleaner Start up repair System restores Registry scans Fresh explorer exe Screaming and yelling loudly nbsp

A:Explorer.exe will not start no matter what I do

When I get to the screaming part, I usually create a new user ( a "trick" I discovered when I was fiddling around with XP when it came out ). Can you try that and write back what happens ?

in the beginning i had problems with installing msi packages which was later fixed by following instructions install try? why matter certain what cant msi i packages no i on websites and forums to either tweak the registry or use group policy editor so why cant i install certain msi packages no matter what i try? that fixed the issue but however there are certain msi packages that still fail to install with the same error that administrator has set poilicies tor prevent installtion or local policy restriction has forbidden this install why cant i install certain msi packages no matter what i try? i have a feeling that it wont be just some but in the future i think there will be many more msi packages that fail although most of them install i want a fix so that every msi package can get installed ill explain my exact problems where msi packages failed first when i completed installing gta towards the end of the installation i get an error message that system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation then i doubted the game would work however it worked so at the end of installation there must have been some small component to install which may have been an msi package that failed this was the same time where other msi packages failed for me but was later fixed with the group policy tweak but even after those problems were fixed when i tried installing gta again the same error popped up in the end meaning that the msi issue was not percent solved second scenario was i was updating my windows home premium that time all the updates succeeded but a few failed normally this would be fixed by installing the updates that were already downloaded then restartng the pc and again trying the same updates that time it worked but again out fof the last updates succeeded and failed so i tried the same method of installing the remaining then rebooting and trying the last update again but it still failed i rebooted a few times still no use the update thatr failed was a security update for dotnetfix which was KB so i googled the issue to find that a few other people were having the same problem that was with this same KB they said that it failed to install for them too then i tried downloading and installing the hotfix of KB from the link they provided in the forum and manually installing yet again it failed and ended with quot installation did not succeed quot then i noticed below that it was written quot this installation is forbidden by system policy quot then i had a feeling that it had something to do with msi packages however the hotfix that i downloaded was exe format but there could be msi contents within exe itself and finally my thinking was right i clicked on the log file and it showed me the folowing Number of applicable items MSI c d c fe d vc red msi Installation failed Msi Log Microsoft Visual C x Redistributable Setup -MSI vc red msi txt Final Result Installation failed with error code x quot This installation is forbidden by system policy Contact your system administrator quot Elapsed time so again it was an msi file that failed so please help me get a solution for a percent restriction free msi installation method remember before telling me the answers i have already tried all suggested methods on the forums my windows install is fresh just hours ago done all updates no viruses im an advanced user so everything with my pc is absolutely fine to my knowledge an also remember that many other people have the similar problem which is still not yet solved
