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.)

Hi, My T410 would not power on, nothing when pressing the button. It will power up if I remove the cmos battery, plug the power in, unplug, re-connect the cmos battery and then plug the power in, and it works fine then...until it's powered off of course and the cycle begins again. I thought it may be a faulty cmos battery so I have changed that to no avail. Next step is to change the keyboard I guess? the power button seems to do will not power the laptop off etc. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and found a solution before I spend £20 or so on a keyboard off Ebay. Thanks, Terry

Recently my T has been overheating and shuttind down after a few hours of browser usage I believed this was due to a heating problem so I finally got under the keyboard today only to find little to no dust or after shuts seconds power approx. on T410 20 down debris clogging up the heatsink fan Just to be safe T410 shuts down approx. 20 seconds after power on I hit it with the compressed air again After reassembling the laptop now shutdown after a short period of being powered on This shutdown happens regardless of me getting into windows loading or getting into the BIOS setup I think this too may be an overheating problem as I see and hear the fan spinning up harder before the sudden shutdown nbsp nbsp I've tried everything from running with only the AC in only one ram card in holding the power button for seconds prior to actually powering up etc Is there any more troubleshooting I should preform or should I just accept the fact I'm better off handing this to a repair professional nbsp nbsp Side note After reassemble I had screws that didn't fit anywhere on the exterior casing maybe I mistook a screw placement and now it's somehow short circuiting

I am having trouble getting the built-in wireless adapter on this laptop to get connected to the internet. I have installed the following driver:
but have had no luck. there are no available wireless connections I can connect to.
I have also tried to use USB wireless adapter TP-LINK TL-WN725N to connect to internet. It is able to find available connections but when it tries to connect it says unable to connect and give options to troubleshoot. Once troubleshoot is complete it says to investigate router or access point issues. I have reset the router many times. Other devices are working fine with the internet just not this laptop.
I am running windows 7 64Bit.
Please help.

A:Lenovo Thinkpad T410 wireless issue

Can you connect the laptop to the router using a cable at all ?

using just the laptop wireless adapter
unlikely to be this as it is reporting NO networks available - but check anyway please
Check the wireless is switched ON
theres often a physical switch or a combination of the FN and one of the F keys to toggle the wireless on/off
often F2 is used - but note , not always - look for a symbol that looks a little like (( i ))

is the wireless on?

I have a Pentium III 533 20gb, 256mb. I am looking to buy either a cdrw burner or a dvd burner. I do a lot of selection music burning and I also would like to have a means of backing up my data in a more compact way than a floppy. Does anyone have any recommendation for me. Which way you would go. Also I am looking to upgrade my harddrive to a larger one.

I appreciate any help.

I would go DVD - in UK they are £50-£60 for a good writer - then you have the choice as to what to use - regards supporting specifications of your PC - I'm not sure on the CPU speed - Memory fine - whats the windows version you have.
I used to use a CDwriter on a 233 machine and whenever i wanted to write i would make sure nothing else is running and leave it (as in walk-away) for 20mins to do the write - it worked fine for months

It is time to renew Norton. I am running 2005 and the cost to renew is $50
Upgrade to 2008 is $40.....I rounded up a few cents on both.
What I am thinking of is doing neither since the price keeps increasing and the upgrade is cheaper but I don't want to upgrade.

I am thinking Avast or AVG free anti-virus products and just simply do away with (uninstall) the Norton product line.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice...

I have client who wants to remotely access and ACT database. Her network is connected via DSL (static IP), Cayman 3320H router/modem. I suggested Remote Desktop, but she travels with the computer that lives on her desk and there is not another to remotely control.

I think she needs a VPN router between the entire network and the DSL modem. Does that sound right?

Any suggestions for inexpensive ones, other than the Linksys?

I have two dilemmas:
Hotspot router w/ QoS and/or Traffic Shaping
I need an ethernet (not DSL) router to use to control a hotspot AP. It must., therefore, have traffic shaping abilities to drastically limit the bandwidth available to each user.

Dual (or triple?) WAN ADSL router
A client has decided to put an Exchange server at the end of a very long, old copper line, meaning he has drastic upspeed problems with his ADSL connection. The constraint is VPN access, so I've suggested a dual or even triple-WAN router which we can route (through DNS entries) 'groups' of VPN users to spread the load. I know they're out there, but does anyone have experience?

I'm a big, big fan of ZyXel kit, btw.

Where I work we need a need new server. I am not really a expert in hardware so I hope you can give me a little help choosing a fitting server, I will use a template with answers to help you understand what's needed:

1) What is the available budget?
Up to 2500? (3380 USD, 2094 GBP).

2) Which tasks will the server execute?
GPS analyses which is pure heavy computing. The amount of reading and writing to the disc is moderate. Internet traffic is low.

3) There is any preferred brand or there is any that is out of question?
Any reasonable brand.

5) Does the size of the server matters?
Should be a standard rack.

6) There are any specific requirements (interfaces, storage etc)?
- 8 cores (1x8 [preferable] or 2x4)
- 16 G byte memory
- 4 Tera byte disc
- fast CPU

I hope somebody can help me with some suggestions.

A:Wifi Issues, SUGGESTIONS needed. HELP.

Welcome to the forum! The best advice I can offer is search for a half-mini card that also has bluetooth. Make sure it specifically says it works with Asus laptop. I don't know about where you are located but Ebay here has lots of them at very low price and used is just as good as new when it comes to these.

I have an Atheros dual-band card with bluetooth installed on my Acer and it is working great. Be sure any card you think about getting has up-to-date 8.1 drivers, as in the last 6 months or so.

And yes, that N 2230 card seems to have lots of problems with 8/8.1.

A:Suggestions Needed For A Good 19" LCD

The monitor we keep getting special deals for here: is an incredible monitor. Although it's a 20" widescreen many of the games today are starting to support this mode. Also, it's not the best for gaming, but 12ms at this size is hard to beat. I've seen this monitor in action and it's incredible. The only downside is that you really need to run your games at the monitor's native resolution - which is 1680x1050. Unless you have a beefy video card (which you do for most of today's games) things just won't be as crisp.

I need some suggestions on a new graphics card. I would like to be able to play & record Standard Definition TV (PAL, Australian) on my computer. But I also know that I need to upgrade my graphics, as atm I am using built-in graphics (think it is 32/64mb ) so I can not play high end games that require a better graphics card.

So my question: Is there a combo of a graphics and TV card, or would I have to get two different things? I have AGP 8x slot available aswell as PCI slots (do not have PCI express). Now I am not looking for something real high quality, I think 128mb would be enough for most games.

All suggestions welcome

A:Data Recovery Suggestions Needed

Often, when a bootable hard drive is moved from one system to another, users cannot access a group of folders (Docs/Settings, My Computer, etc.).This calls for a procedure known as "taking ownership" of the files. It's pretty routine, How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP - <<Also Can I transfer everything from my crashed drive to a backup storage device and go ahead and format and reinstall everything on the original hard drive.>>I guess that I don't understand what you are asking. After you get all your desired data files off the troubled can do whatever you want with it.I would suggest that you do two things before even thinking about using it again: a. Run a manufacturer's diagnostic on it to ensure that it has no inherent, current problems...before attempting to reinstall XP on it. b. Use the XP CD to delete the existing partitions on it...then create a new partition/format/install XP...if that's your ultimate goal.Louis

Hi Fuzexi

This should help with some suggestions for software and guide you through the recovery:

If the files are corrupt then it seems more like a logical problem. Did you run a chkdsk on the drive? If the drive hangs then be careful your drive could be developing bad sectors.

This isn't for me, but a friend. He lives in England and wants to upgrade from his current 939 system. He wants the E8400 Wolfdale (and nothing else will do; I tried ) and asks for suggestions for a motherboard.

I am woefully void of knowledge on what motherboards would work with this 45nm processor. Here are a few his parameters:

1. He doesn't/won't overclock.

2. He doesn't want SLi or Crossfire.

3. He needs something rock stable; no need for all the extras or the tweaking. Stock will do him fine.

He is significantly limited in PC knowledge and that is why stable and steady is very important.

Alright, I have built my own computer from the ground up, and have even upgraded it to the point of finally needing a new power supply.

The case I own is a Large Case - Antic Sonata II Tower.

The current power supply I have is a 450 Watt that came with the tower, however i'm looking to upgrade to a minimum of 750 Watts.

My prefered website to shop at for parts is

I would apreciate any tips and suggestions as to what brand I should look at.
On a side note; i'm willing to go as high as a 850 Watt power supply.

Hello everyone
I've spent allot of time searching for the right power supply, and I just wanted to post a thread here in case any of you wanted to share.
Ideal PSU: 700-750 Watt Moduler 80-Plus Gold/Platinum reliable, silent and efficient power supply for my computer (Check my spec's!). If not, somewhere around that area.
Another thing I wanted to ask, is the XFX ProSeries going to be branching out to 700-750W soon? Apart from it's great performance, I'm interested in the Hybrid Fan feature.
Looking forward to the suggestions!

Hey all,
Well I successfully built the system that you guys helped me with:

Asus A7N8X-X
1 gig corsair ram
Amd athlon xp3200+
Raidon 128mb 9600 video card

anyway, the case I bought came with a ps (it was the x-dreamer case) and yet I dont think its very good. According to the asus probe, my +12 and +5 are fluxuating alot. Is this bad? Should I replce the PS? How hard is this to do and what do you recommend as a good/powerful/quiet/not too expensive power supply? Thanks all

I've (finally) decided to upgrade my graphics card, and would like external opinions on which options are best. I would prefer to spend within a $240 budget, which would have to suffice for the costs of both a graphics card and power supply, as my current PSU is a stock model with a measly 300W output. I would greatly appreciate any ideas, suggestions, or insight. Thanks in advance.

*Also, I don't make online purchases, so retailer available items would be helpful.

A:Suggestions for New GFX Card and Power Supply

Here is the new CX500 model, the CX500M. It is semi-modular and an all around great PSU.

As for a video card.....what are your expectations? After that PSU, that leaves $160-170 left for a graphics card. Is the $240 firm, or can you add a few more dollars to it?

I just saw the part about not buying online........I have no idea what is local to you, but expect to pay a little more for it, or stay within the $240 budget and get less for your money.

Just to add: If you DO decide to do some online shopping, NCIX is the place to do it since you are in Canada.

Once the scan and analysis is finished, a new window will appear.

Click the "Power Analysis" button. It'll show you the minimum power supply rating, based on your current hardware.

When you consider the additional load of a more powerful graphics card and hard-core gaming, you'll see that the current 250 watt power supply won't do it.

Yes, T4Y is having a slight issue and I would like to share the problem with you guys and get some feedback.

My computer has been acting weird since it crashed on me. When it did crash, it would be stuck in a loop in resetting itself. I had to go into safe mode with network to get it to work. Now my computer has some kind of lag when opening up Firefox and with iTunes open too for example. Also it has been going on with other programs too. I noticed that the CPU was getting abnormally high in usage. I did the normal things like check for spyware / viruses etc and clean as a whistle. Can this be a hardware issue?

I have a small issue that has reoccured. I didn't resolve it last time. Had no need to do remote control then.

On a D-Link DI-604 router, 2 computers.
Computer A can ping Computer B.
Computer B cannot ping Computer A.
No firewalls, including XPs (SP1a only) are on.
Computer A cannot connect to Computer B, either by IE to get shared, or by GenControl (remote control)
I have account on both machines, same name, both with administrative privileges.
IP addresses, subnet mask, and gateway are correct. The workgroup is correct also. Router is handing out all information.

The only reason I'm doing something about it now is that I need to share the printer (on Computer A) and obviously need to have communication with the machine. The machines are in the same room.

Any other ideas to check?

Hello folks.

I have a high pitched noise coming from my power supply. It happened recently, and it's been lightning around here to boot. It's on a surge protector, but obviously we know that doesn't mean it can't still be hit.

Anyways, I can hear it fine but my dad can't. Before the tumor jokes start, my little sister can hear it as well, so evidently we both have tumors. I ended up unplugging everything from the power supply, including the motherboard, and turned the power supply on and off, and the noise only started when the power supply was turned on.

It still works, but it annoys the heck out of me. Obviously I want to replace it but I'm not sure if I can get an RMA. Is there any risk running it like this?

Hi Guys,

I'm currently suffering from a random power shutdown issue. The PC boots up correctly and is totally useable and in working order.

However after different varied amounts of time. 20mins - 5 hours on occasion. The PC will just randomly power down as if the power cable has been removed.

I am getting the following error within Event Viewer 'Event 41, Kernel-Power' - "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

I have checked all power settings and have currently set to High Performance Mode, with Hard disks 'Never' to turn off etc.

After suggestions and help as to what may be causing this issue.

Thanks in advance,

A:Random Power Down Issue - 'Event 41, Kernel-Power'

If this were a desktop machine my first question would be "How old is your power supply?"
If this is the Compaq laptop shown in your specs, I am wondering if the connection to your battery is not as good as it should be. I'd double-check the contacts or connections. There may be a loose or broken wire, or even a failing connection inside the battery itself if it's old.

A:Toshiba Satellite A75 boot/power issue with AC power

Since you have replaced the system board twice, this probably does not apply to you... but we have seen a number of Toshibas with the same or similar motherboard where the power jack on the board became loose or disconnected. A new jack had to be obtained and soldered back into position.
If you bought used boards or refurbished boards, this difficult jack problem could have been the cause. It requires a special cold solder technique and is awkward to access, but when done properly by an experienced tech, it can save a laptop.
There are several Dell Inspirons and Sony laptops with the similar problem.
We have seen costs in a shop as high as $160 for this repair... but the part is only $6.00 so I don't know how they justify the high cost.

I've got a computer that's turned off. I press the power switch, and nothing happens. Now, I unplug the network cable and the computer turns on.

Why does having a network cable connected prevent the computer's power switch from functioning? And why does unplugging the network cable cause it to power up?

The computer has worked fine for a year, but was recently moved to the other side of the room, and a new switch replaced the old network hub at the same time.

So since recently my laptop shuts off randomly. The battery is also getting old and with battery, my laptop runs only for about an hour. Sometimes it runs just fine, and other times it shuts off suddenly, usually when I turn it back on right away, it shuts off again while booting. And also, since that started to happen, my games run with extreme lag.
I hope/think its just a power issue that makes it suddenly turn off. The reason I think this is the problem is because there is a Mic, webcam, hdmi screen, speakers and sometimes Phones, connected to it, only the screen and speakers are self powered.
Before i buy new battry and adapter, first I want to make sure what you guys think it might be?what to do to find out more?

I'm going to upgrade (read: replace) my ancient machine soon.

I've come across a really good (i.e., very cheap!) deal for a Sempron 64 3000+, motherboard, 512 Ram & X1300 Pro video. Yeah I know, not exactly cutting edge! But it'll do fine with the workload it's given.

Anyway, I need a case for it, of course. What sort of power would this very basic machine need (with a DVD burner and two hard drives).. 400, 450 or 500w? Or less, even?
oh, there's a supplementary question too - can you boot 'new' machines like the one listed from a 200gb ATA drive? at the moment I can't; I'm booting from the smaller HDD. It'd be nice to be able to, though.

I did a hardware scan on my computer and it showed me a hardware problem with the memory. The computer have been working fine for many years now. The only thing I did not so long after I got it was to upgrade to 8 GB of memory and an SSD disk. So it have been working great for many years.No it's started turning it self of sometimes while I use it. The scan showed result code: WMEBVVBTH-WL8BRF Also see the log attached. Is the memory starting to go bad or is it the Windows? The computer is upgraded to Windows 10 a few months back.

The dump output from BSOD program and performance monitor data are attached.

The system is:
Lenovo T410
Current OS is Windows 7 and is the one that came with the system.
System is 3 or 4 years old.

The BSODs seem to occur during heavy browser usage. Having multiple tabs opened and switching back and forth between tabs, the browser, and desktop apps. But almost always (if not always), when I am in a browser window.

Hi all, I have a T410 that's from 2010 with the i5 520m cpu. I bought it used recently and I don't think the bios has ever been upgraded. When I follow the regular instructions of entering BIOS --> Config --> CPU, I saw a menu of four choices. The bottom two wereIntel(R) Virtualization Technology [DISABLED]Intel(R) VT-d Feature [DISABLED]I tried to change them, but strangely the menu only let me navigate through the first two choices (I can't recall them exactly now but they didn't seem to have anything to do with virtualization), nothing seemed to allow me to access the bottom two choices...  How should I go about fixing this properly?  I want to be very careful with upgrading/flashing BIOS as I really don't want to end up with a brick Thanks

A:Enabling Intel VT-x in a T410

Look for your BIOS Version and post it(You can find it on the start page of your BIOS)VT-x is supported by your CPU, but maybe there are conflicting settings..Maybe you really have to update the BIOS but that shouldn't be a real problem...Use a disk image, hook your thinkpad to the power and let it be for 20 minutes or so...

i5-460m processor
windows 7 home premium 64
320GB 7200rpm hard drive
9 cell battery
Anyone think i should upgrade it differently, I'd like to get it a little cheaper so where if anywhere should i make the cuts in upgrades?
Has anyone got this laptop? is it particularly heavy to carry around?

Hi guys, new here...I'm setting up a new pc, sooo a few questions here.
I'm planning on getting an Asus A88XM-plus motheboard, Amd X4 860K cpu and Sapphire R9 280 3GB video how much power supply would be enough...450-500W?..would 650 be an overkill? Is all of this fully compatible?
Do I need a sound card, modem or special cooling or something? ( I already have 2*8gb Ram sticks and HDD, don't really need DVD drive).
I'm also thinking in between Antec 902 V3 case and a lot cheaper LC Power Gaming 975b Air wing much quality difference is there in between these two?
Also, how much improvement is there in between this card and my current one, sapphire r7 265 2gb?
Are there anything that you would exchange for something else...I'm on a tight budget, but I don't mind spending a few extra bucks if it be worth in the long run.

A:How much Power supply is needed here?

Hey Bobo!

Nice components.

Asus MB is a good one as is the 860K

The GPU requires a PSU of 500 watts but, if you intend on OC'ing the CPU (which should be done as it might bottleneck the GPU)
I would go with a 600 watt PSU and Not a Corsair.



Overclocking means you need better air flow to protect it so, a cooler will also be an worthwhile addition.

USA Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan (RR-212E-20PK-R2): Electronics

The Antec 902 seems to have enough air flow and should provide enough cooling to the other
Don't know where you are so, two prices from different Countries :


Antec Nine Hundred Two Mid Tower Case - 0-761345-15924-1 -

USA : the 903 V2 is discontinued in the USA but the 900 is a good replacement:

You might also look at the NZXT Guardian :

You have more than enough RAM (memory). This CPU will handle 1866Mhz RAM as well.

As for the GPU , it is a marked improvement over the previous one you mention.
If money is available and if for gaming purposes, a R9 280X might prove a better deal.

I was going to purchase a PNY 8800GT 512 GDDR3 256 bit graphics card but i wanted to make sure my computer could hanlde something like this. I have a dell 4700 motherboard
P4 3.2 Ghz CPU
1.75 gigs of RAM 1 gig(2x512)+512mb(1x512)+256MB (4 slots total)
320 gig hard drive
X-fi extreme gamer sound card
480 watt power supply

Is that enough power for that card on my system. I know that PCI-E 2.0 works on regular PCI-E so i dont need to worry about that, and i don't have a 6pin power connector for PCI-e but the card comes with a 6pin adapter for cables my power supply does have so that's good, but do i need more power or am i good, or just barely making it. I dont want to fry another card because i didn't have enough power.

A:8800GT, how much power needed?

I'm not familiar with Dell products, but just offhand, if your graphics card is in the $50 to $75 range, I think it should handle your power supply. I have a 550-watt Ultra power supply, a lower mid-range ASUS motherboard for $90, and a PNY 8000 Nvidia graphics card and everything's fine.

About two weeks ago, I began getting BSODs on a 9 month old ThinkPad T410 running Win Professional 7x64, OEM. This is the original install of the OS, and there have been no recent hardware changes. Prior to this issue, the machine has performed without any failures.

Today's failure happened quite spontaneously (or so it seemed to me) while the ThinkPad was sitting unattended and unused for about 15 minutes.

Thanks very much for your assistance.

I'm trying to figure out if the slow performance of my T410 (on certain apps - mainly Firefox and Quicken) could possibly be caused by an overheating problem that I know I have (because I sometimes get a "fan error" on startup, and because it is hotter to the touch that it seems it should be).  My speculation is that maybe the CPU has a temperature monitor, and when the temp gets too high it throttles down the CPU.  Is there any truth to that idea? ~ Thanks in advance~ Ken

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello there,I wanted to get all my data from my old Thinkpad T410, so I took out the SSD which was installed in it and connected it to my newer Computer. The problem is that my new bought Computer did not recognize the drive at all, so I tested the drive externally on my Thinkpad and this doesn't recognize it either nor will it boot from it when it is connected via USB. I tested the drive on Windows, Linux and MacOS, there are no problems with my external connector, my Thinkpad boots without problems from other USB-Drives and the drives work internally without any problems. On Linux, the drives are detected but not mountable and not formatable... I hope someone has an answer to this problem

Have you tried recalibrating the battery? Open Lenovo Power Manager -> switch to advanced -> Battery -> Battery Maintenance -> Perform Reset. It will take a lot of time to complete, don't remove AC power while this is running. Let it run while you are sleeping or something similar so that you won't have to interrupt the process.
