Laptop acting strange. Few things happening.

Q: Laptop acting strange. Few things happening.

Ok so I've had this laptop since October. Occasionally when I'm on Skype with my cam I get this weird white noise type thing. My whole screen turns into like white noise, like how tv's are on the wrong channel. It's not the regular black and white dots, but there's color to it and it's lines. So basically color noise. It has happened a few times and I have to hold the button down and restart it. Recently though, my laptop has been turning itself off. No BSOD or anything, but just shutting off on it's own. It has happened twice. Once when I was on cam and got the color noise, and now another time while I was just watching a video. I have no idea what's going on. Any advice or help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Laptop acting strange. Few things happening.

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.)

Try updating your graphics driver.

I read somewhere that if you delete this .jpg and then try and change the background it should work. Can't remember where though but its worth a shout.

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\TranscodedWallpaper.jpg

As for the Firefox personas issue I'm not sure whats up with that. You may want to remove personas and reload it again. I love personas, I've used it for some time now.

I used a de-frag programme to speed up my VAIO which uses W7. it was a disaster.
As a result I've had to re-load lots of stuff and an unfortunate side effect has been that when in Control Panel I can't click on lots of the links to perform actions like "create a new user profile" "find and fix problems" etc. it's a nightmare. Can anyone help?

what program did you use?
it should of made a restore point or promted you to make one usually so restore back to before you performed the defrag.

Hi
After having completed a system restore a couple of days ago my PC is doing some strange and annoying things.
Firstly it has slowed down to a snail pace and sometimes when I click on an icon nothing happens (no egg timer appears).

When it has been on all evening and I want to access say Outlook Express or Google I get a message stating "Insufficient system resources to complete the requested service". When I try to shut down it seems to take forever.
My system is protected by up to date versions of AVG, Spybot S&D, ZoneAlarm, Adaware and Spyblaster

What is happening.

Thank you in anticipation

A:Strange things happening

What was the reason you decided to do a system restore? That might be the key to understanding what is happening.

I have something that I have never run into before. I have 2 accounts on our computer and my husband has 1. About two weeks ago when I went online, the account had my background but, it was my husband's. I switched to my account and everything was fine. About a week later, it happened again while switching between applications but now, my carousel (we have AOL) is on my own application but it is also on my hysbands. I have not had a history button on mine for about a week...it just disappeared. Does anyone have any idea how we can straighten this out or, if it can be fixed.
We have XP Home.

Hi everyone,
Sorry to bug you all, but I've been told that you guys would know the solution to my problem.

My computer has taken it upon itself to do some bizarre things of late.

As I sit happily internetting away, all of a sudden the calculator program opens for no apparent reason. Equally strangely is the fact that the DVD drawer (slidey-in-and-out-thingy) opens of it's own accord on occasion.

Has anyone got any idea why this is happening?

I have AVG antivirus, and a Sunbelt Kerio firewall.

Regards
T_T

If it's an "enhanced" keyboard, I'd say it's a sticky calculator key. If it was just the CD drive, I'd say a dirty lens or uninstall/ reinstall the device.

Hello I'm using win8 64
 
Maleware keeps blocking a lot of sites flyclick.biz being one of them.
 
I have a lot of com surrogates and google chrome showing in the task manager. And I never use google chrome.
 
Every now and then google chrome will open and a video will start playing.
 
I've tried running malwarebytes and it isn't removing it. I've also tried windows defender.
 
Also I noticed new directories with names like gamehiggs, sysutilbeerware, whiskeyvisual, and receivermodel. All in user/appdata/localLow
 
Basically its really slowing me down and hogging all my bandwidth.
 
Any advice?

At the top of your post, please click on the "Watch thread" button and make sure to check Watch this thread...and receive email notifications. This will send an email to you as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing me to solve your problem faster.
Please do not install any new software during the cleaning process other than the tools I provide for you. This can hinder the cleaning process. Please do not perform System Restore or any other restore.
Instructions I give to you are very simple and made for complete beginner to follow. That's why you need to read through my instructions carefully and completely before executing them.
Please do not run any tools other than the ones I ask you to, when I ask you to. Some of these tools can be very dangerous if used improperly. Also, if you use a tool that I have not requested you use, it can cause false positives, thereby delaying the complete cleaning of your machine.

All tools we use here are completely clean and do not contain any malware. If your antivirus detects them as malicious, please disable your antivirus and then continue.
If during the process you run across anything that is not in my instructions, please stop and ask. If any tool is running too much time (few hours), please stop and inform me.
I visit forum several times at day, making sure to respond to everyone's topic as fast as possible. But bear in mind that I have private life like everyone and I cannot be here 24/7. So please be patient with me. Also, some infections require less, and some more time to be removed completely, so bear this in mind and be patient.
Please stay with me until the end of all steps and procedures and I declare your system clean. Just because there is a lack of symptoms does not indicate a clean machine. If you solved your problem yourself, set aside two minutes to let me know.

Please attach all report using button below. Doing this, you make it easier for me to analyze and fix your problem.

Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay for the repair.

Hi there Im running XP Home SP3, I had some issue that gave this message during boot "Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SOFTWARE"So I used the following guide, plus a FIXMBR and FIXBOOT to repair the system. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545 Eventually got the machine back running, however, I am seeing strange things happen that never happen before. I'm not sure if there is some infection or not. 1. When using Firefox I have been getting redirected here and there, from google, i do a search and I know the link is the proper link but when i click i am redirected have to use ctrl+alt+delete to close the windows.2. Explorer Has Crashed message appears right after I log into the system.Any ideas?Thanks.

Have windows on a new computer something strange is going on with IE so far only two sites it's happening on it gmail and facebook With gmail - I'll go in look at my mail delete it etc but then within about minutes there it all is again in my inbox showing as new mail What the heck This doesn't happen every single time but often With facebook when I go in and play games and progress thru the game all is fine say I come back the next day and open the game again all IE10 - things strange happening... my progress is gone I know this isn't earth shattering but what is going on This doesn't happen on my win IE laptop I've tried resetting IE didn't do anything Can I put IE on the win computer instead Getting tired of doing work over and over and I've mentioned on another post that I live in the boonies and have vzw mobile broadband with only gb's of data a month so all this re-downloading of mail etc has got to be eating up my data Just remembered something else too I have yahoo toolbar installed and yes I've taken it off and still have the same problems IE10 - strange things happening... with a few certain apps on the toolbar that I click quickly to go to a quot favorite quot website For some strange reason ONLY when I click on a link in an email from Dell to go to the dell website the toolbar regresses back to original before I set it up the way I like it When I close the dell page out the toolbar is fine

A:IE10 - strange things happening...

And wanted to add to this...I'm SO frustrated at this point...I'm on IE10 trying to get some stuff done and EVERY page I click on I get a "cannot display page", or you aren't connected when I am CLEARLY connected. I'm about ready to pick the computer up and throw it out the window. I'm TIRED of hitting refresh over and over and over again to get a page to show. I'm VERY close to getting rid of windows 8 and installing 7 instead. This is ridiculous...now I see why Microsoft is practically giving away this OS to people. When are they going to fix things? I don't have time or patience to go thru all this. Sorry, venting....

A:Strange things happening to Win7 since Win10 came out

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
The worst I've read is willingly using Mcafee
Without knowing all of the tweaks used to get x-p look going on it might be difficult to figure out what is happening ?

Most people simply use classic shell to get the x-p look and call it a day.

A:I suspect I have malware/infection [strange things happening] what can I do?

Hello Felty, and  to the Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal forum.I am oneof4, and I am here to help you!
I ask that you refrain from running tools other than those I suggest to you while I am cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.
Please perform all steps in the order received and do not proceed if you need clarification.
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 do not re-run any programs I suggest. If you encounter problems please stop and tell me about it. When your computer is clean I will alert you of such. I will also provide you with detailed suggestions for prevention.
At the top right-center of the topic you will see a button called Follow this topic. If you click on this, another page will open. Please choose Instantly for notification and then clicking on Follow this topic you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.
If after 5 days you have not replied to this topic, I will assume it has been abandoned, and I will close it.
I would also like to inform you that most of us here at Bleeping Computer offer our expert assistance out of the goodness of our hearts. Please be courteous and appreciative for the assistance provided!
Again I would like to remind you to make no further changes to your computer unless I direct you to do so. Your computer fix will be based on the current condition of your computer! Any changes might delay my ability to help you.
 
==========
 Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
Please copy and paste log back here.
The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.

Hey,

I came to this forum because I believe my computer has been infected with a possible virus or trojan. I run spyware removal scans regularly with nothing being found as serious, however I believe it may be missing something deeper. I have noticed that my computer has been running much more sluggishly the past few months. My computer clock does not update with day light savings time and often switches itself from military to regular time for no reason. I have had the computer for 4 years now and have kept it pretty clean and it has always run fast. I would like to see if there is something missing. The sluggishness has become worse lately and my cleaners seem to be finding nothing, also my defrags and disc cleans are making no difference as well as my registry cleaner. Thanks

Hi The_Archive_Guy. Under normal circumstances this would happen if the Deliver email to the following Location under Tools > Email Accounts > View/Change Existing Email is changed to the PST in question which would make it the default delivery location. There is no option to delete them from within Outlook. The entire data file would have to be removed.As for automatically happening without intervention, as of right now I cant confirm. I created another PST to see if it automatically happens, but as of a few hours having gone by, the change has not happened. If it does happen to change I will amend this post.

A:Help Please. Weird Things Happening With My Laptop.

Ok your last item you brought up is the most important. SO not use a registry cleaner! They are a scam tool and can only mess up your computer.

The second thing you should is do a factory restore (format) with disk that is provided with your laptop and erase everything. Back up what you need and do a scan with your antivirus. You should change the settings on your router's encryption if you got hacked. The best thing to do is these things.

-Make the Wireless Encryption to WPA2. WEP was made in 2001 and WPA in 2005/2004. They are old standards and WPA2 is the safest so far.

-Change, if you can the routers ping back settings so that they don't allow automatic pings backs from an outside computer so the hacker can see if the router is vulnerable or even there.

-Change your password to at least a 26 alpha/numeric password. I'll give an example --------- 1a2b3c4d5e6f7g8h9i10J11KLL. The easiest thing to brute force attack a router is one with a password that is in the dictionary. Brute Force attacks is when a computer captures a sample of your encryption and then tries to break by putting a dictionary attack on it. That is it goes through every possible combo in the dictionary/letters and sees if it fits your router's password.

So recently my laptop tends to have a mind of its own. Some of these things are:
Opening programs when computer is not in use.
Flipping monitor completely when computer in not use
copying and pasting icons on homescreen multiple times when computer is not in use.
I actually got fed up and restored the computer as that should typically work, right?
NO. Same thing is happening.
I have researched these symptoms and it looks like Im the first person ever cause I cant find a fix nor resolution to this.

A:Laptop acting strange

Sounds like you have spilt a cup of coffe on the keyboard! Seriously is this possible? There is treally no point in running "loads" of AV's. Just one will do. Did you have an AV running before this problem started as you could now have a bug in the BIOS!

Hi,
My son attempted to download a game & managed to download some other spam programmes which I removed, but since then his laptop has been playing up.
Google chrome wont load anything other than a page saying 'your connection is not private, attackers might be trying to steal your information from www.google.co.uk (for example, passwords, messages or credit cards)'.
Malwarebytes anti malware which was working perfectly now wont open.
Can anyone please help?
Thankyou

A:Sons laptop is acting strange!!

Reboot in safe mode with networking and uninstall Malwarebytes, then delete temp files, and redownload Malwarebytes and scan your laptop with it. Once the scan is done remove those spywares etc and reboot in normal mode.

Hi, I have 2 networks, one in my warehouse and 1 home office, it is just 2 laptops, we carry back and forth on a daily basis, at my home office I have no issues it works great.

This problem started a few weeks ago, nothing has been changed, I didn't installed any new software etc. everything is the same no new hardware.

Both networks are wireless

at my warehouse, my laptop is acting strange, when I single click it does a double click, when I try to highlight something it takes forever to highlight it to copy it and so on.
the other laptop works fine,

Laptop with problems is Sony Vaio Windows 7 home edition 64 bit

Warehouse we have AT&T DSL (that is the network where my laptop acts strange)

Home Office we have Internet with cable

Any ideas what can cause the one laptop to act up and how to prevent it?

thanks for any help

Could be a lot of things but I would first re-install the cranky driver (wifi?) it may have become damaged.
Just in case run an antivirus scan.
Let us know the results

Hello,
So my keyboard has been fine for years but all of a sudden it started to act strange... Some key I press would have numbers with it. Like my "R" key will type out "0r" and only a few other keys are like that and my Space bar types "4"s. My number lock isnt on and I dont see any strange programs running.
If I type "R" and it comes up as "0r" I can go and delete the 0 but come on, I really cant be doing that all the time.
A virus scan showed up nothing. Im stumped. I have no clue whats wrong.

Has any one experienced this before or does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

A:My Laptop is acting real strange

I would sya you're likely infected. What was deleted from your external drive may or may not have been an autorun.ini (a common method of propagation for wormlike threats) - does anyone else use that drive?

anyway, if the autorun.ini file was removed the threat may still remain. seek further answers via HJT.

So, my laptop (asus s56c) started acting really really strange. It has windows 8 x64 OS. It just went crazy. For example, all my usb ports stopped working with my mouse, keyboard or any other device I try. I've suspected that it could be a case of pc viruses, tried to scan pc with free version of AVG 2013 internet security, however it also acted strange. I decided to remove it and install a kaspersky 2013 anti-vir that I had, and it just didn't install. It just kept at 'Installation is almost complete' for like 1 hour. I restarted pc, but restars always started taking for 7 minutes ending up with a BSOD (DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE). I decided to reinstall windows to windows 7, but my DVD drive also refused to read anything. What the hell is happening guys?

A:Windows 8 x64 laptop started acting REALLY strange. Help!

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

I beleive this is a fairly common issue which may have been complicated by Antivirus software conflicts. Most AV's these days have a dedicated removal tool and AVG is certainly no exception. Download tools and utilities | AVG Worldwide should have been used to make sure of proper removal before installation of Kaspersky which also has a removal tool if you want to remove it. Service articles

I would normally recommend Microsoft Security Essentials but in Windows 8 you already have it except that its been renamed Windows Defender. That should be adequate for your needs but its up to you.

I suspect your bsod is driver related. We can have a closer look if you post your minidumps.

Navigate to C:/windows/minidump where you should find some logs ending in .dmp leave them in their .dmp format but zip them together and attach them to your next post.

Hi,
I usually don't run my laptop on battery. However, I know for sure this problem didn't exist before the upgrade to Windows 7.

The battery loses charge at the rate of about 5% every 10 min.
Little time after the meter reads ~ 70% the laptop goes into automatic hibernation (first seemed to be a power options issue). But when I do "system resume" after plugging in the battery the meter shows about 10% and charging.

I have already tried calibration. (actually that's what the laptop is doing by itself).

Thanks,

Neo

I could not post on this forum as my keys wouldn't allow me into this box only the title...weird. I had to reboot my computer to post. It still didn't allow me to paste from notepad.
I was able to reinstalled from an image so everything is working fine. So you can close this one out.
Thx

i am having some odd things going on and am wondering if someone is hacking me. when i use office formatting options change intermittently without me doing so and just now protected files e.g., desktop.ini were shown without me asking for it to happen and i did change it back. could this be a hacker or is it just buggy win7? let me know if you want me to post a hijack log etc...
 

A:odd things happening

I have also had some problems with my toolbars changing on their own the buttons are moving around without me doing anything also my system crawls really badly if when i use it in the small hours of the morning but i don't think it's because empty caches or anything as it does not do this when it has been on all day and i use it at say 10pm but does if it is 2am which is rare for me to use it at that time.

Hello,I see now that there are 3 different antivirusscanners installed on your system. Bear in mind that more than 1 antivirus can cause problems and decreases the reliability of it seriously!So I suggest you uninstall Trendmicro and McAfee and keep kaspersky.Well, actually, the choice is yours which one to keep, but Kaspersky is really good in recognising and deleting new malware.* Download and install CCleanerDo not use it yet.* Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.* Reboot into Safe Mode`: Select without internetconnection this time! So that's why I suggest to save this in notepad or print it out.* Start HijackThis, close all open windows leaving only HijackThis running.

Almost every time I turn on my PC there are things changed, like the size of default font for my computer, or like my MSN was missing from my all programs list, and things in my MSN are missing like my offline list. Its really weird. I'm pretty sure the cause of these things is because of spyware, but how am I supposed to get rid of it?? I have already done spyware scans with windows defender but it didn't find anything. If anyone could help me that would be great!!
 

A:Weird things keep happening

The first thing you need to do is install http://www.download.com/HijackThis/3000-8022_4-10379544.html

Then you need to post your log in the security forum. If you have spyware, etc. it will yake a lot more programs to get rid of the stuff. If you need more help...ask

A:Weird things happening here......

Hi, Relax.....

We do not assist with company computers as a general rule - I will Close the thread for now. YOu can appeal the decision to an Admin. (It is not because of the link you posted....we simply delete those, no punishment....)

Do you have someone there that is supposed to be maintaining the computers?

If so, you need to work through that department. The malware is easy enough to deal with but it would be difficult for us if anything happened to the computer.... our Rules do not allow us to assist with company machines.

This type of malware usually gets in via a vulnerability (the things Microsoft issues Windows UPdates for a lot)

Or, there are lots of other softwares from other makers that have "holes" and malware can infect you without a download or install. Could be an IM or email, an infected flash drive. Security is supposed to be inplace in businesses but I know lots do not think they need it or don't want the expense.

About three months ago I got my first virus alert from Norton. Since that time, my friend has received email from me that I don't send that have the Klez virus in them. Also, this moring I received an email from someone I didn't know that had contained a virus but our virus protection had removed it, but it had a picture of my friend and her husband attached. I called her and she said she had not sent it. Has anyone ever heard of such a strange thing happening? I'm going to change my virus protection and have a router firewall....if I have a router firewall hardware do I still need firewall software?(is that a stupid question?) Thanks for your valuable input.

Fluffy,
Have you checked for any updates on your graphics card lately?
Do you have the same problem using another monitor?
Check all cables and then do the above....

A few days ago my computer just randomly started opening up programs and windows searches with quot quot in the search bar I assumed it was my keyboard When I unplugged it it all stopped I checked to make sure none of the keys were stuck and even took it all apart and cleaned it really well It worked fine for a few hours and then it started doing it again I would unplug it for a few minutes and when I plugged it back in it would be fine for anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours before it would start opening up random programs I installed malwarebytes spybot and hijack this and all scans came back fine So today it started doing it again Even after being unplugged it would start as soon as I plugged it back in So I unplugged it and tried using the on-screen keyboard It was still doing it I noticed that if I push the F key the windows search box pops up and certain other keys would open other programs So what in the heck is causing this to happen I'm not able to do anything and was getting ready to replace my keyboard which I'm glad I didn't waste the money on since it's clearly not my keyboard dying on me I don't know how to figure out what is causing this to happen Does anyone have any ideas Thanks

I noticed that if I push the F key, the windows search box pops up, and certain other keys would open other programs. So what in the heck is causing this to happen?




I know that when you press the windows logo button and the <f> key, the windows search dialog box will display. As well as other programs with other letters. Maybe check and see if the Windows logo button isn't stuck.

Hello, I am running windows 10 on my HP laptop, I have avast antivirus installed but when I am on a browser I seem to get overruled by pop ups, every site I go on it tells me EDGE has blocked a pop up and pop ups appear everywhere telling me my computer is infected. Is there any free way to remove all adaware and spyware or not.

Thanks In Advance
