I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am trying to install a wireless usb dongle on the laptop, but fails because there is no Com Ports in the device manager. I tried to look if the Com Ports are active in BIOS but I need a password to go into the BIOS. How do I get the Com Ports in the device manager visible and active?

I can't find port (COM&LPT) in device manager.
I just have new ASUS A450 with win7 64 bit.

i've done search in this forum, but nothing help me.
Like "show hidden folder" the com port still didn't show in device manager.
Also see the port setting in BIOS.
In BIOS i don't have an option to enable or disable the port.
Also i've installed the chipset driver.

What should i do then?

A:How to make COM port & LPT visible in device manager?

I don't see a com or LPT port listed in the specs for this model. Its rare that current hardware systems have those ports as they have been obsolete for many years.

Here's the situation:
Hard Drive: Western Digital
Is this a mounting problem?? If so.. how do I mount the drive?
Original problem is that the pc wont start on boot. I pulled out the drive and put it into an external enclosure and connected it to my other pc vis USB.
The drive powered up; began spinning; no strange noises etc.
The pc recognizes the connection of a USB device but it does not show on the computer other than the device manager. According to the device manager, the device is working properly and make and model is correct.
Yes, this is where you tell me to reformat but I need the data! Part of my thesis that didnt make it to the backup drive!!!!! I would appreciate any suggestions you have!

I got a problem with USB cable. When I plug it in there is no action from system side. It should at least give me a message like"Unknown Device" but there is NO such message. I don't see it also in device manager...
I've checked same cable on different laptop (Windows 7) and it shows as "Unknown Device".
Scan for hardware changes also dont work for it...
Can anyone help me with this?
- how to debug it? I've tried Microsoft and Intel drivers but with no luck

A:Connected USB cable - no action ,not visible in device manager

Hey, do the following
? Press Win Key + R to open run then type devmgmt.msc to open device manager.
? In device manager go to universal serial bus controllers. It will display a list of all USB devices. Plug and remove the device so as to find the USB device which is not working. Once you found device, right click and go to properties.
? In properties, go to details tab then in property option select device instance path. Now copy the value in notepad. It will be required in the next step.
? Now Press Win+R and type regedit in Run box
? Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB\<Device Instance Path>\Device Parameters
(Device instance path is what you copied in notepad)
? In the device parameter check if EnhancedPowerManagementEnabled showing value 1. Double click on it and change the value to 0. Now Reboot.

take it easy, there's nothing wrong with your computer. the hard drive case needs it's own drivers or you'll have to return it and get a different (and possibly better) one.

Viruses freezes upon in Laptop task helped enough to the point where it was bearable The start up was still a bit slow as I had to leave it alone for a good minutes before everything runs smoothly Laptop freezes upon scanning anything.

I have a macro that populates my sheet with data it copies from a filtered search. It copies the search results from Column A, then Transposes it to each of the rows visible, before clearing the filters. My problem is that sometimes there is data already present in those cells, data from previous searches. I need to keep that data and paste the new data. Right now the macro pastes over the old data, I would like it it if it simply moved it or shifted it to the right.

I purchased an external USB Storage device of 80 GB capacity (Sony). When I connect it to my laptop (HP Pavilion zt3000), it shows up in the tray. But when I check through "My Computer", there is no icon for the USB Hard disk for me to open and store data.

The response is same when I checked it in another laptop of HP.

Hardware Device Manager shows that the USB storage device is working properly and responds correctly for connection or disconnection!!

Can you advice what could be the problem and how to come out of this issue and start using the storage device?

A:USB Storage Device not visible in My Computer

Connect the external drive and turn it on before turning on the laptop. Give Windows a minute or 2 to "see" the drive. It eventually will. Once Windows installs the drive, you should be ok.

It's only showing "Speakers". There should be an additional Headphones device to choose from. I have enabled "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices".

The VIA HD Audio deck will load up when I plug in the headphones, and it askes me to choose "microphone" or "headphone". I choose headphone, but no sound plays. Confirmed headphones work with other devices.

Have tried a system refresh. Tried removing VIA drivers many times. Tired the stock version, up to v6.0.1.1900 and many in between.

i know it said not to bump.. but i figured its been long enough to where this thread is long buried. i'd rather bump than repost.please help.. im SOL.===========Hello I know how frustrating it is when your computer isn't working properly. Let me assure you that your topic isn't lost, forgotten, or ignored. We work with hundreds of logs every day, so we have devised a means of seeing only those topics that don't have responses yet. At the moment, we have nearly 600 unanswered topics, the oldest dated Mon Jul 13, 2009 8:52 pm Eastern Daylight Savings time in the U.S.A. This topic is dated July 17 2009, 8:12 PM using the same time zone.Our volunteer HJT team members have various levels of expertise and training, so while we try to take the oldest DDS/HJT logs, it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us would want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.Please be patient. It may take a while longer to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I'd suggest checking your topic once a day for a response.Thank you for understanding.Orange Blossom ~ forum moderator

Hello, I have windows 7 RTM on three machines.  I joined all of them to a homegroup, which was working for a few hours.  Now, I can see the other members in the group, I can expand them to see their shared folders, but I cannot open them.  Also, the icons used to be based on the type of folder, like a video for the video folder that was shared.  Now, all of the icons are the generic blue win7 library icon.I have left the homegroup, tried making it again, and rejoining them all, still the same issues.  All of them seem to join fine, but none of the computers can share files.Any ideas?

A:HomeGroup not working - folders visible but cant open them

Please refer to the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.
Step 1: Modify HomeGroup settings.
1. Click Start menu and open Control Panel.
2. Click "Network and Sharing Center" and click "Change advanced sharing settings" in the left panel.
3. In current "Home or Work" profile, please select "Turn off password protected sharing" option and "Allow Windows to manage homegroup connections (recommended)" options, and then click "Save changes" button.
Step 2: Temporarily turn off firewall on each machine and router (if it has) for a test.
Step 3: Access the target computer directly
1. Boot computer A.
2. Click the Start Button on computer A, type "cmd" (without quotation marks), in the search result list, right click on Cmd.exe and select Run as administrator.
Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
3. In the popup window, type: "ipconfig" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
4. Remember the IP address such as "192.168.XXX.XXX".
5. Boot Computer B to Desktop.
6. Click the Start Button on computer B, type "\\<IP address of the target computer A>" (without quotation marks) and press "OK".
For example:
Can we access the shared folder on computer A successfully?
If there is any error information, please capture the picture and upload it to SkyDrive ( ), and then share it to me.

I have 4 laptops, LT01, LT02, LT03, and LT04 running Windows 7 64 bit.

All 4 laptops are visible (and inter-operable) with standard network.

However, 1 laptop, LT02, is not visible in HomeGroup on LT01, LT03, LT04.

Whereas LT01, LT03, LT04 are visible in HomeGroup on LT2.

Granted its not a real show-stopper for me but it is very irritating.

Done all the obvious thinks like setting up HomeGroup on LT02 and then joining the common HomeGroup.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

I have a laptop and desktop both running Win7 x64 and connected to a 100baseT Ethernet network (hardwired). The desktop usually comes up under Network in Windows Explorer on the laptop, but the laptop only occasionally comes up under Network in Windows Explorer on the desktop. The laptop tends to be visible on the desktop after I boot the laptop, and then will disappear when it goes to sleep and then wakes up later. Is there some way to force some sort of network "refresh" on either the laptop or desktop? Something else I should try? Thanks.

You can try turning off some of the power saving options via the control panel "Power Options".

You can also try turning off the power saver for the network connection via Device Manager>Network Adaptors> right click on the device you are using to connect to the internet then choose Properties, then choose Power Management and uncheck the power saving option for the network adaptor.

My laptop was recently infected with the Windows Recovery virus. I managed to get rid of this by using rkill, Malwarebytes and then unhid all files and icons etc.

Everything appeared to be running fine for a a few hours until it shutdown by itself. Now when I boot my laptop no desktop is visible, just a black screen. The mouse arrow is visible and I can access files and the internet through Ctrl Alt Del and then task manager so I'm lost as to what the problem is. I am running Windows 7.

Any help would be much appreciated :)

Hi Lee 250 and welcome to TSF.

When in Task Manager check to see if you have a process called explorer.exe If not, in Task Manager go File>New Task> and type explorer.exe and hit OK.

My HP laptop is running XP.

My daughter was using it, when suddenly it starting beeping, and displaying error messages.
By the time I got to it, all the messages were gone so I don't know what they were.

After re-booting, all the programs and files are gone.

It will boot in both regular and safe mode, without any errors, but all the programs are gone, along with all the files.
The recycle bin is empty.

When I look at the properties of the hard drive, it still thinks it has files on it, displaying 17GB free space out of 43GB.
Using CMD, all the directories are empty, even the root.

It didn't come with an XP disc, instead it is on a separate partition.

I am using Norton for virus protection, and run MalwareBytes regularly.

Any help or suggestions is GREATLY appreciated.

I have an Sony Vaio VGN-NR430E with windows Vista. This laptop has a semi-sordid history. After being out of service for almost a year with a checksum error, I was finally able to get it up and running by a complete reformat and reinstall of Vista. The touchpad was already not working at that point (but it was a lesser problem then the checksum error).

I have managed to get the laptop completely working again. But the touchpad is completely dead. There are no drivers for the touchpad displayed in device manager - despite manually installing the correct ALPS driver. I have tried a dell driver fix I read about elsewhere, and also a file renaming solution for XP here - neither worked (the latter disabling my keyboard and mouse and I had to system restore).

Anyone have any ideas? Thank you so much for your time!

A:Sony Vaio with Vista - Touchpad not working, no driver visible


When you say there is no driver displayed in the Device Manager console, is there an entry anywhere in Device Manager that appears as something like 'Unknown device' or that has a yellow exclamation mark in the device icon? This would usually mean that Vista 'sees' the device but doesn't recognise what it is. If you see anything like this, right-click the entry and select 'Uninstall'. You can then do one of two things: you can either click the button at the top entitled 'Scan for hardware changes', or restart the computer. Either way Windows should hopefully re-install the correct driver for your touchpad, as long as it's still on your hard drive somewhere where it can find it.

Post back here if you still get problems. Hope this helps.

However yesterday my girlfriend was using it as normal with nothing out of the ordinary , then this morning I tried to use it and it goes to the toshiba screen then says windows is loading files. after that it goes to the blue welcome screen and the only thing I can do is move the cursor (which is now about twice the usual size).
would really appreciate any help with this.

I'm using my Windows 8 ASUS EEE PC to try and connect to a wireless network. It's not available in the list.

I use my phone (Windows Mobile 6.5) and see on other people's laptops (XP, Vista, 7) that it's available and those devices can see the network and connect without problem.

I've tried to manually add the network with no success.

I've tried to check the routers settings to see what level it's broadcasting on but that should just be average b/g but I can't check for sure, because I don't have the password for the router.

I don't believe there are any special settings as the router is set up to cater for standard users.
Why can my machine not see it?

Ive had no such problem in the past with any other wireless network.

I have set up a network consisting of an XP desktop , Windows Home Server Desktop & XP Netbook & router.

The network works as it should when the netbook is connected to the router by ethernet. However, when I connect the netbook wirelessly it (the netbook) cannot view the other computers & an access error is returned when trying to access networked folders on the desktop & server. (the desktop can see the laptop though).

When I reconnect wired all is OK again.

Disabling the security software made no difference nor did resetting winsock.

So the problem lies with connecting wirelessly

Does anyone have any ideas as to where I go from here?

I was given a rundown HP 2000-2b19WM laptop to try and fix. The problem is when it boots up past the windows logo screen it just stays a blank screen and eventually the mouse cursor shows up. I left it sitting over night still never fully booted up. I've followed all of the HP troubleshooting steps. I've removed battery held down power button plugged ac adapter in turned back on and nothing. I've reseated the memory sticks. I've ran the startup fix and says it can't repair problems. I also ran sfc /scannow in cmd prompt and it fixed some errors. I would factory restore the computer but I don't have the reset dvds nor does the person that owns the laptop. Is this a driver issue ?

The image displayed on the screen of my Toshiba Satellite laptop is offset so that not all of the tray at the bottom is visible, and there is about 3/4" of black screen at the right side of the display.

It seems to have coincided with my having installed a malware-ridden application. Although I think I have expunged all of the malware, the screen display problem persists.

I have tried restarting, and I poked around in the Control Panel options, but no obvious solution has presented itself.

Any suggestions?

I've got a new HP desktop (550-107na) which is supposed to come with two hard drives, a 1TB standard hard disk and a separate 128GB SSD. However Windows is not showing any sign of the SSD at all.  I am slightly confused how the SSD is supposed to appear on this setup so im not really sure what to look for. I was expecting to go to 'This PC' and be able to see the 1TB drive and the SSD listed, but I can only see the standard drive, recovery partition and the DVD drive. Can anyone clarify what I should be seeing or whether they are working in some sort of hybrid mode together? Is there anything I can test to see if the SSD is actually working? Thanks in advance.

So I have an XP Pro SP3 machine running as a NAS. Every now and then, it will drop off the network.

I have a shared printer connected to it, and have mapped the C drive to my main desktop, as well as shortcut folders to important folders on the NAS. When the NAS drops off the Network, I can still access all these things, I just cannot find the computer when I go to Start>Network (on Vista or our other XP Pro machine).

Normally I wouldn't bother since everything is mapped and that all seems to work fine (Remote Desktop even works), but my WDTV Live can't see it either which kinda defeats the purpose of the NAS if the WDTV Live can't see it.

Any suggestions?

How do I hide the "My Documents" junction (and "My Pictures" etc. in "Documents" folder)? I think the four junctions became visible after I unzipped a 7-zip file containing the "My Documents" folder created in an XP machine. The junctions are now visible regardless of the "hide system files" etc. settings in explorer. The four junctions are also listed when I "dir" in cmd.exe. No other junctions are visible in either explorer or cmd.exe.

I can't see any option to hide a junction when I right-click -> Properties on it. How do I do this, i.e. get them back the way they were initially?

A:Some junction became visible

Hello Jruhill, welcome!

I'm not sure what you mean by "junction". Sounds like you've copied/extracted directories out of a zipfile, possibly with subdir's too. If that's the case, assuming you did not need the dir's on this machine, can't you just delete these dir's?
However, if you're unsure, then please upload a snip/picture of a explorer window of your "My Documents" with Detail settings on. We'll have a look at that.

Do you have scripting of java applets enabled on your browser? Go to tools and internet options and it would be under the security tab.

I recently upgraded my 32-bit installation of Windows 7 to a 64-bit one. I changed my RAM setup from 3(2+1)GB to 4(2+2)GB. But, Windows just shows 3 GB Ram. It doesn't say it like "4 GB (3 GB usable)". No. It just shows me 3 GB, as if that's how much RAM I've installed, even dxdiag. However, if I open CPU-Z, it shows me the correct information - that I have 4 GB of RAM in a (2+2) mode.

So, what's going wrong? I'd really appreciate some help.

A:PFM Fonts are not visible

These are obviously outside fonts, and are not part of a standard Windows install. So you had to install them yourself. How did you do that install on your home machine?

I just installed your provided fonts on my own machine, and they installed perfectly and are fully functional in MS Word 2007 (I don't have WP X3). They also show up just fine using Typograf.

The PFB/PFM files you provided are fine. The way I install these Type 1 fonts is to open the folder containing them in Explorer, and then "sort" on the Type column heading, so that all the PFB files are first and the PFM files are second. Then I select all the PFM files (click on the first, hold SHIFT down, and then click on the last, to light them all up). Then I right-click on the selected group and select "install" from the popup menu. Always works perfectly, as Windows apparently accesses the PFB files automatically even though I'm doing an "install" having selected only the PFM files.

So, sorry to say it, but like with your other machines where the fonts work perfectly, installing them on my own machine also shows them to be working perfectly. You must have not installed them correctly on your home machine.

OK... 30 minutes until Vaio down the stairs moment....

Following a whole load of grief with a failed drive... I now have a new one.

Installed it as my primary clean drive, and then booted up from the XP disc to initiate a format and then onto a new XP installation.

'Windows cannot find a hard drive'.
It shows in bios. Could this be because it is not formatted? I thought the whole point of booting the XP disc startup was to be able to format the disc - ready for XP.

Suggestions? Is there a free Fdisk utility anywhere I can burn to disc? Certainly not buying anything else for this poxy laptop!

Hi Sorry if I should have tacked this onto the other thread on this topic - I ve explorer.exe visible 100% cpu uses when newly joined and didn t see any advice for or against doing this I have a similar problem - explorer exe uses CPU quite frequently but it seems to be only when it s showing If I minimize it then it stops There are two different manifestations of the problem explorer.exe uses 100% cpu when visible In version process explorer shows a thread in nt dll RtlDllShutdownInProgress using most of the CPU I have a network drive hosted via Samba on a Linux box and while Explorer is using the CPU it is hammering the Samba process even though I don t have the network drive listed as something to be indexed Changing a file on the network drive often sets it off Windows Explorer is still pretty responsive In the second version of the problem I have the CPU equally divided between the RtlDllShutdownInProgress and BrowseUI dll Ordinal The Samba server isn t doing much and Windows Explorer is almost unusable I have very little on my desktop apart from shortcuts I m running on an x system Intel Core Duo under a VMWare virtual machine The first version of the problem has been happening off and on for months The second version has recently started I m not aware of any changes I ve made in the meantime Any thoughts on this would be appreciated nbsp

Hi all,

I want to another HDD to my system. I got a new IDE HDD and installed it. Changed the jumpers accordingly to Master & slave. Checked the Bios to ensure the IDE would Autodetect. Once in Windows, new hardware dialogue box displayed, hardware installed mesage appears. I go to My Computer and cannot see my new HDD.

I then changed jumpers on both HDD to cable select. Launch Wndows and HDD still not visible in My Computer. Have checked Device Manager and according to it new HDD is working properly and is enabled. Checked BIOS again. HDD listed there too.

Head wrecked. This is happening on a WXP system and Windows 2003 system too.

What am I doing wrong?

hey guys

i use windows XP, with 2 administrators and a guest account. nowadays, when i press the 'switch user' option, i get the blue welcome screen, but there is no sign of any account!!

what do i do??

A:accounts not visible

If you hard reboot (power button) does it let you go on by the welcome screen the 2nd time around? Is there a similarity between what you are experiencing & what I have going on?

My laptop for quite a long time now has had the habit of hanging every time I try to access my dialup internet connection for the first time of the day only - it hangs, I do a hard reboot, then I'm good to go for the rest of the day.

I recently for some unremembered reason set my computer up with user accts (there was just me and guest before) and require a windows logon. I think it was because I was going to leave it running overnight at work with pcanywhere. I noticed that whenever my machine booted to the welcome screen where you'd normally see the users and choose one, the machine was locking & I'd have to do a hard reboot - just like it does with the dialup network access. I've gone back to disabling user logon requirements, and no more problem.

I probably need to reinstall my OS but I just haven't been brave enough to try it with xp. I am now wondering if there is something corrupt in the network protocols or drivers or something that causes this.

I am hosting a few sites on my own server and recently noticed sites are only visible locally from within my lan. Trying to access my sites elsewhere gives me gateway timeout errors.

I need to try and troubleshoot locally from within my lan.

Is there a way (command or something) that I can try to access my sites as if I were coming in through the internet.

My setup is:
- centos 5
- virtual hosting of sites setup through virtualmin (this was just recently installed for me so maybe a config problem).
- 2 of my sites were working ok and 3 were not

A:sites not visible outside of lan

If you use a proxy, you'll see the site as it would be from outside your lan.

Are you using an ISP that allows you to host a site? That is, is it possible that your ISP is blocking traffic on port 80?

We have a NAS server on the network. One of our laptops recently got destroyed by water damage and had to be replaced. The new laptop is Win 10, and the NAS server is not visible on the network. On the old, now water-damaged laptop (Win 7), the NAS server had a desktop shortcut, so even if it wasn't visible on the network, the files could still be accessed.

How can I either force the computer to recognize the NAS server, or create a desktop icon that is linked to it without it being visible in the network listing?

It does print, but need access to properties to make some changes, and cannot see printer to select properties. Please.....gotta be a techno out there. I have searched Microsoft over and over...nothing.
No it's not networked..can't see it to share it. It goes through the install like a normal install. I am stumped.

I am running a multi-boot system. Under W98se and XP, my two cd-rom devices are visible. Under Windows 2000 sp4, they are not. This is a brand new situation because they were visible until today.

In the Control Panel, they are both flagged. I uninstalled them and re-booted. Same problem. I tried the driver update requesting Windows update. I got the answer that appropriate drivers were already installed.

I ran spyware checks with Ad-aware and Spybot. I scanned the whole system with my antivirus. No intruders apparently.

The last major change I recall that I carried out recently is an upgrade from DirectX 9.0b to 9.0c. Could that have created a problem?

I am running Windows 7 x64 on both my laptop and PC. Both have the latest Windows updates installed.

When I connect my USB key to my PC it doesn't show up in Explorer. When I click into Disk Management it is shown but without a drive letter. If I try to assign a drive letter I get an error, "The operation failed to complete because the Disk Managemnt console view......".

I have had the same problem with various USB storage devices. For example, my PSP when connected by USB will not show up in My Computer but will show in Disk Management.

I have tried restarting the PC in safe mode but the drive is still not recognized.

This drive works fine on my laptop.

Any help is much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Have you tried formatting your USB drive in either FAT/FAT32/NTFS?

Where did your drive originate? I'm not sure what format PSPs use, so the fact that that won't connect may also be irrelevant.

Active X controls for IE are kind of like addons for firefox. Only download and install Active X controls that you trust. A general rule is, if a site wants to instll an Active X, make sure that it says on the site. If there is no message at all, don't install. As for Visible Body,it is safe to install them.
