Internet Running VERY Slowly - Details Inside

Question: Internet Running VERY Slowly - Details Inside

Hey guys... I really haven't had this problem before. My internet is very good - DSL. For the last 2 days, it's been running VERY slowly - it's been taking one minute or more to load every webpage. Downloads that have went 140kb/s are now going 500bytes - 2kb/s. My Google customized homepage takes 2 minutes to load I've run a spyware/adware scan, and it's still not working. I really don't recall doing anything that might have caused this.

I am running Windows XP.

I WOULD post a hijack this scan, but the download goes SO slow, and in the middle of the download I get the following error message:
---------------------
Internet Explorer cannot download hijackthis.zip from downloads.subratam.org [or other download source]

An unexpected error has occurred.
---------------------

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Internet Running VERY Slowly - Details Inside

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

hi, i have had help here before and seem to need it again. My problem is not with any pop-ups or malware it seems, but my computer is running VERY slow. It has only been in the past month or so that it has been running slow. Mainly it is Internet Explorer that is very slow. Other processes are slow, but not nearly as slow. Please let me know what other information will help.

I have an IBM T43 laptop with Windows XP Pro.
-Version 2002, Service Pack 2.
-Intel Pentium M Processor 2.00 GHz, 798 MHZ, 1.00 GB RAM (came with 512, I added a 512 stick myself). I have many programs on the computer, too many to list. (As an aside, Adobe Acrobat does not work anymore either and I cannot figure out how to remove it for the life of me. If I open a PDF with IE or Mozilla, it freezes both. Also, when opening a pdf with adobe, it appears in Arabic/computer language. Just on case this makes any difference.)

I have MacAfee antivirus and it has ben detecting a few viruses here lately. Most recently was today, it was an Exploit-MS06-014 Trojan running through explorer.exe.

Also, I have all the file logs available of my MacAfee scans, if needed. I will paste my most recent HiJackThis log.

OK, firstly I'm not sure If I posted this in the right topic. But I tried. Anyway, my computers sound works fine (so I don't want many people saying things like "turn your speakers on" or "check the volume") because I can listen to downloaded media and itunes/windows media player. The problem is when I got to websites like youtube, and myspace. I can watch videos but no sound plays for either. Its getting quite annoying.

Hey,

Recently, I received a message from the windows firewall about a wuaudit.exe and I blocked it. Now, I can barely go to websites or download anything, much less post in this forum. I have used spyware search and destroy which did not remedy the problem.

Hi there, thanks for viewing this.

Recently, my internet explorer 7 and firefox has been running quite slowly. After googling a bit, I found out that this problem could be caused by the iexplore.exe virus.

Many iexplore.exe was running in the processes tab of the Windows task manager when my internet browsers were not in use. This may have caused the slowness.

I have a logfile of TrendMicro's Hijackthis v2.0.2:

Greetings, and welcome to TSF!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Hi there, I hope this isn't in the wrong board. Feel free to move it if it is!

Well basically...yesterday morning my internet was working fine. Then all of a sudden it started to lag, and took about 3-4 minutes to load up simple webpages.
Other errors include not letting me attach anything to emails, not letting me upload images to webistes (ie Photobucket), not allowing me to publish websites (ie Freewebs) and error messages coming up on instant messengers.

I have scanned my computer twice for viruses. Nothing came up. I've also restarted it, tried downloading other web browsers, as well as resetting my home hub. It doesn't work - the same errors keep coming up, and of course this is very frustrating.
Nothing else is running at the same time, literally just the internet. Everything else on the computer works fine that's not internet based!
I even emptied my temp. internet files & cleared my cookies/favourites. Still nothing.

Haha help please?

Ever since about a month ago the internet on my pc started running slowly out of no where. All other devices in my household are fine so I don't think it is my internet (I also tried putting my ethernet cable out and back in again which was to no avail). I decided to reset windows in case there was a virus and I also reset my ram, neither of these did anything. I'm not the best with computers so I am assuming there is something that I am missing that would be obvious to a more experienced person, if anybody could help that would be greatly appreciated :).

Hello all, first time on here. I arrived home today to a PC I had to hard reset do to it not coming up after hitting a key or moving the mouse. After restarting it could not access the internet, kept saying the problem was the router while the laptop worked fine. I noticed some things came on with startup that did not use to. So i tried msconfig in the run box to fix that and I cannot access that, message says that msconfig cannot be found? Anyway, here is a log and I am not sure what I am looking at so I thought I'd turn to the pros in hopes of some assistance.

Is it legal or illegal to share internet with ISP comcast? When you share internet, can one end user's computer run really slowly? What if one computer hasn't restarted in days, will that effect slowness too?
 

Answer:Sharing internet and running slowly?

It's not illegal to use a router to connect multiple computers to your Comcast account. It is illegal to share your connection with non-family members, say a neighbor.

Answer:Internet Explorer running slowly

Try another site google "bandwidth speed test" and hit a few of the sites that pop up to make sure you can repeat these results. If that checks negative, contact your ISP to see if you have any service problems in your area.

I hope someone here can help. I have a router split between 3 computers at home, and although I can access the shared files between each computer, transferring them takes a lot longer than it used to, e.g. copying and pasting a few Mbytes can take 10 minutes, and streaming music and video is very choppy and lags throughout the whole file. I use a DSL-G604T router and all my network cards are 10/100Mbps, and as I said, there was once no hassles.

I've tried some usual remedies, like restoring defaults to the router; rebooting it etc. I haven't touched the drivers to the cards and they're all up to date anyway. If I view my connection from each machine the Speed rating still tells me 100Mbps.

Is this common? What could be happening? If could be noted as well that sometimes the network seemingly works fine, and music can be played between machines with ease.

I recently built a new custom computer for a friend, all top of the line parts. However, when I attempted to set up the internet connection, I had loads of trouble getting it to even connect to the internet. I finally got it to connect to the internet, but it runs extremely slow, and any type of file you try to download is just as creepily slow, to the point where it basically doesnt work. the wireless adapter being used is a 300mbps, and I'm not sure what the router is, but on another computer in the same house the internet works completely fine. Hope I can get this fixed! Thanks
 

Answer:Internet Running Slowly on New Computer

Make sure the antenna is secure and in a position where it is not hidden from the wireless network.

If running a Windows OS ...

Make sure you have the latest driver from the adapter manufacturer's web site.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Hi,
I'm not sure yet if the problem is within my computer, with the router or with my provider. The thing is, whenever I download large files, the download runs smoothly, both when downloading directly from a website with my browser (IE7) or with a download manager, and when I download from GigaNews, my Usenet provider.
When I use the internet for other purposes, browsing or Skype mainly, I often experience being unable to connect or very slow opening of pages, often terminating halfway.

I'm running a fully updated Vista, and have Norton 360 installed and running. I also regularly scan with Spybot-SD and AdAware from LavaSoft. I've also used CCleaner and AdvancedWindowsCare to try to solve the problem.

What makes me so uncertain of the problem is the beforementioned fact that downloads are running so smoothly while surfing and Skype doesn't work.

I ran gmer, but refrained from DDS per the advice given. If anything else is needed please let me know and I'll provide it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

We certainly would not be advising to run any tool in our pre-posting sticky topic if we thought it to be dangerous. I believe you are referring to an older tool - DSS (Deckard's System Scanner).

Gmer alone doesn't tell me much. Please do follow the instructions for running DDS and post the logs it produces.

Answer:Ran adwcleaner and now Internet running super slowly

I have not heard that issue associated with running AdwCleaner...in fact, by removing junk add-ons and extensions, it should speed things up.AdwCleaner should have created a folder located at C:\AdwCleaner. All AdwCleaner.txt logs are all stored in that folder including the Cleaning report log. Please copy and paste the contents of AdwCleaner[S0].txt in your next reply for review.

So recently my internet has slowed down alot and sometimes just turns itself off completely. The problem has also been affecting xbox live (which I run through my pc) and is pretty much making games unplayable.

The strange thing is that my flatmate in the room next door can be playing on CoD:MW2 fine on his PS3 while when I try it just lags too much and similar problems with the internet in general. I have tried playing on CoD late at night when everyone else is asleep and the problem still occurred, so I believe it must be something to do with my PC. Downloads are also affected, where before they used to go at atleast 1mbps it is now struggling to get 300kbps.

My ISP is virgin, a wireless router is used throughout the house and it is netgear. For browsing the internet I use firefox. My PC was formatted last month so there isnt too much stuff on it, but it cant be that I havent installed something because it was working fine for the first few weeks after the format. I have been trying to fix it myself but I just dont know whats wrong. Xbox live sometimes tells me that the MTU setting is too low (needing to be atleast 1364) but when I checked the router settings it was on 1500 so I have no idea whats wrong.

Any suggestions? If any more info is required just ask. Thanks.

     I seem to have a virus that has taken hold about a week ago. It has lowered my download speed from around 10 mbps (wireless) and 15 mbps (wired) to about 1.2-1.7 mbps. My computer has taken about 30 seconds longer to boot than prior to the "virus" and performs slower all around. At some points it will disconnect me from the internet completely and require me to reconnect 3 or 4 times before it starts working. It isn't router problems, as all of my other computers are working perfectly, and isn't the wireless adapter because I've tried 2 others, as well as connecting through my laptop, with the same result. I have tried all of the steps listed in the slow computer section of the forums and everything I have downloaded recently was scanned with AVG.

Answer:Computer running slowly and losing internet connection

What type of internet connection are you connected to? I am thinking dial-up because this mainly happens with it.

Hello, I am having problems with IE 8 on my desktop. I am connected to the interent wirelessly using a network adapter and using Windows Vista for my OS . I am connected at 4.8 m/bs and the connection status is excellent. For some reason IE andy other browser Goole Chrome will connect but it will take a very long time just to even load the home page or visit anoter site.

I have not had this problem before and was surfing the Internet very fast a few days ago with the same connection speed and status. I have already tried deleting cookies, history, temporary files. Ran a virus scan. Ran a disk clean up and reinstalled both of the browsers does anyone know a solution to this problem or has had the same problem on the past?

Answer:Internet Explorer running very slowly; wireless connection excellent

You could have a bad add-on.Try running IE in No Add-ons Mode. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) - If this fixes the issue, then go to Tools -> Manage Add-ons and enable the add-ons one by one to find which one was causing the problem.

You can also try resetting Internet Explorer's settings by going to Tools > Internet Options and then the "Advanced" tab, and click "Reset..."

Let me know if this solves your problem.

Cheers,
Bryn

Please help, my computer isn't very useful right now. Here's the deal:

1. My computer keeps on freezing up on me, and I don't even have many programs running. When my computer finally starts up, I log onto windows, and it takes seriously two or three minutes for windows to load; two weeks ago it took 20-30 seconds for windows to load. When windows finally loads, and I click on a program (ie. Internet Explorer or Opera Web Browser), it takes another five to seven minutes for one the programs to appear on the screen, then another minute or two for the program to load. When I close a program, it does one of two things; my computer will freeze, and I'll have to restart it; or, it will take a couple of minutes to close the program. And I'm just working with the basics; Internet explorer, opera, open office, and windows media. I'm trying to add music to my newly added iTunes library, but that's almost impossible.

2. My computer won't shut down. This computer is only seven months old, it's too young for such problems. When I go to shut my computer down, I select the shut down icon from the start menu, and expect my computer to shut down. Rather than shutting down, windows pop up telling me that the programs that I had been running are not responding, and I have the option to wait or end the program. I end the program, and the window comes up again, it's almost like my computer isn't properly responding to its commands. Again ... Read more

Several months ago I had to completely wipe my computer and reinstall everything due to a .dll failing to load after having installed a Windows Update.

About a week ago, I noticed that the graphics on my computer were bad. Two days ago I went to Dell's website and made sure I had the latest updates for my graphics card ( NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 ). That seemed to have corrected my bad graphics issue as my screen looked normal again.

Yesterday I began to notice that web pages would not load properly, that I couldn't have more than one instance of a browser open at one time, and that pages just froze.

Today the computer crashed with a blue screen that said page_fault_in_nonpaged_area. Then I got a message box from Windows Error Reporting saying that a device driver caused Windows to stop unexpectedly...a "stop error". It told me to go use Windows Updates to check for updated drivers. I went there, but could never get to any page where drivers were updated, it just kept trying to check my computer for updates...and then said that I needed to update my Windows Update (KB892130 - Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool). It failed to install this update and would not install it the couple of times I tried.

I have ran Hijack This and the other scans as instructed and are posting them (and/or attaching) them below:

Hi. My computer has been running much slower than normal. When you open a new window or even try to select a user from the first screen, it really takes its time. Even once the window is open, you can still hear the wheels turning inside the box like it is really struggling to run its basic operating system. When you type something into a web page text box, there is a lag from when I press the key to when the letter shows up.

I have Windows XP and an AMD processor (I don't know which one).

Thanks
Eric

Right, so my mother has had quite an issue with her computer for a long time. I never use the PC, so I haven't been able to actually experience all the symptoms. I believe she has a virus. And these are the symptoms I've experienced.
 
- Random freezing and crashing.
- Computer refuses to install Windows Updates. Even something as little as 1.0mb
- Couldn't install anti-virus software as if something was blocking it from finalizing the process.
- Avast anti-virus scans hangs on one thing indefinitely as if something is stopping it on purpose
 
I have tried using Malware Bytes to scan for anything but to no avail. And the avast just refuses to work.

Also trying to play something in winamp resulted in a sound driver error, when it was working fine beforehand.

I'm currently running Avast and MalwareBytes, and will keep this topic updated, I hope I can fix this....

I'm hoping this was just a random fluke and I'm being paranoid about nothing. Both MalwareBytes and Avast have come up with absolutely nothing on my main drive, though I'm still scanning my backup drive.

Weird, all those problems stopped on their own, guess it was just a fluke.

Hey everybody!

I recently managed to get my computer loaded with a number of different viruses. To make a long story short, I downloaded/ran an .exe program that I later found out was full of viruses/keyloggers.

I ran a bunch of scans (Malwarebytes, Avast, McAfee, then after I uninstalled McAfee, Kaspersky. Now everything seems to be back to normal. It might just be me, but my computer still seems a tiny bit slower than it was before all this happened (I'd like to put emphasis on the possibility that it could just be me being cautious). I'm also not sure if there are any keyloggers left, so I would really appreciate it if you guys could look through my logs or not to see if I'm clean.

Known [previous?] Viruses: Right after I opened up that deadly .exe file, my links from the google results page started taking me to RANDOM pages, with nothing to do with what I searched for. Shortly after, EVERY program that I would open up would have a few "error messages" before it, with just little pop up windows saying "Error C:/blahblah", and only after I exited out of 2 or 3 of those, would the program would open.
Also, I ran a virus scan the a couple nights back after I infected my computer, and when I looked at it in the morning, "Windows Police Pro" was up. Knowing this was a fake program, I closed out of it and deleted it via HKEYblah, and the task manager (and I also deleted the WPP files on my local disk). Next morning, it was back aga... Read more

First off, I have a Windows Premium Home Vista One, 32bit.

My computer was acting up and had frequent random shutdowns, so I decided to do the system recovery and restore it to factory settings. Everything was going great, I was putting all my files back into the computer when the frequent crahses started coming up. They would either come up after I tried rebooting the computer or about 5 minutes after I'm logged in and everything. It's where the blue screen comes up and usually either of these messages comes up with of course other text:

IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal

or

Bad_Pool_Caller

I heard it somehing to do with my drive or something, I'd appreciate any insight and help on this recurring issue. I'm really not that great with computers.

Thanks!

Ok well before I start off, I'd like to say that I have cleared the main annoyances of my problem. I registered here because I still think, however, that I am vulnerable to attacks. The firewall within Spy Sweeper is still picking up and blocking things.

The problem I had before included many different trojans and spyware, that got wrapped into a single download my sister got. Apparently she doesn't know not to open 21kb .exe files...

The precautions I've taken so far were as follows:
1. Turned off my internet, I knew a trojan would likely redownload itself until all of its virus and spyware files were removed. I put my internet back on when I thought this was the case.

2. Did a scan with AVG Anti-Virus Free, and it was unable to remove most of what it found... What remained, I was able to delete by finding manually with the help of the AVG logs. (Details about viruses will be below)

3. Did a scan with WebRoot Spy Sweeper, it found a lot of things and got rid of them. (Details about this will be below)

Answer:My Graphics are Fawked!.. Help.. More details inside.

Did you uninstall the previous cards drivers ? You could also try uninstalling and re-installing the new cards drivers.Also make sure the graphics card your using is selected as the default device.
I imagine you have enough RAM to not be causing problems.
You could also try installing the latest version of Nvidia Physx from their website.

Alright, I am using Windows Vista.

Since about three days ago I CANNOT logon into Msn Live Messenger nor the online Hotmail.com to check my e-mails.

It seems this problem also occurs when I try to buy things online like Ebay.

Msn Messenger gives me this error code: 80048820 (Extended: 80048439)

I tried all the suggest things in the Help Topic. Nothing worked.

The last suggestion is to :"Reregister the SSL security libraries"

In Windows Vista, click the Start button, and then click in the Start Search box.
Type each of the following commands, and then press ENTER. After each command is executed successfully, you will receive a "DllRegisterServer succeeded" message. Wait until you receive this message before continuing to the next command.

* REGSVR32 softpub.dll
* REGSVR32 wintrust.dll
* REGSVR32 initpki.dll
* REGSVR32 Rsaenh.dll
* REGSVR32 Mssip32.dll
* REGSVR32 Cryptdlg.dll
* REGSVR32 Dssenh.dll
* REGSVR32 Gpkcsp.dll
* REGSVR32 Slbcsp.dll
* REGSVR32 Sccbase.dll

Click to expand...

When I enter about half of the entries I get an error(The ones in bold):

So should I re-download the missing stuff? I don't understand wintrust because I redownloaded another one and it still doesn't work.

I really need help, hope I was clear enough.

P.S Googling the error code is a waste of time -_-

So, my laptop has been freezing. But not exactly randomly. I can run AIM for roughly 5-10min without a freeze-up (aka, nothing works/opens, but I can still move the mouse). OR I can open up firefox and it will run no problems on about half of the sites/forums I usually browse. And lastly, I have tried to scan the computer several times, but it freezes up almost exactly halfway through (three times now), and then I can press the "Quarantine" button and it will freeze again halfway through deleting what's there (just tracking cookies).

I'm one of those people with a secondary computer, one for gaming, one for everything else. My laptop is that everything else computer, and it's quite annoying having to alt-tab out of my precious games. Worst case, I may resort to re-formatting.

If you need anymore information, I'd be happy to give it. I don't know the exact specs of the computer, as I really never cared what they were, being my secondary computer, and I can't open the system info without it freezing, so I did the best I could copying specs from a website then changing what I remembered. But it's a Dell Inspiron 1501, and you can look it up yourself if the below specs isn't enough information, or I might be able to help out.

ok, 3 days ago my computer was working completely fine. that night i downloaded a zip file for a video. the next morning my comp told me that i needed to install "important updates" [which i think was just the windows sp2] and when the computer restarted i needed to install the latest version of java so i let that install and update.

then after all the updates were installed my computer started acting weird. i couldnt open pages like myspace.com, socialvibe.com, or my online school which is flvs.net, i also can't open pages where there are multiple images. i've tried to uninstall everything that updated so it was back to the way it was, but my browsers are unable to download and they're still unable to open myspace and the other sites. i use opera as my main browser, firefox when opera doesn't work, and chrome as my last resort. but i also have safari and IE installed but im unable to use them

i've tried to do a system restore to 3 days ago but it says the only restore point was 8/24/09 at 10:24 am, so that wont work.

so is there a way to make my computer work normally again? all i really want is to be able to download again and open the webpages b/c i REALLY REALLY need my school page to open any help will be much appriciated

I'm posting this from safe mode w/ networking as I don't know where else to turn.
I did a sfc scan and it stopped at 57% and I followed online instructions to obtain the sfc.txt. Here are the files unable to be fixed. The 2 corrupted are bcdedit.exe and wucltux.dll

Another thing to note. I've had this Lenovo y580 laptop for about a month and a half now and I've had to use "one key recovery" to wipe everything about 3 times. This thing will work fine for like 2 weeks then out of nowhere all these error messages and applications will start crashing. The HDD and memory health is fine from all scans from lenovo support they performed.

I only have warranty for hardware and I've been on the phone w/ them about a dozen times total. Now they want me to do a clean install by sending in recovery disks which would cost $60. Software warranty is extra $ which I'm very tight on. If I could manually try to fix this it'd be a godsend. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks. I also use MSE and malwarebytes so don't think its a virus it must be a flaw in the system. Thanks very much

Answer:SFC Details inside. How do I fix these corrupted files?

Hello JJ, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Here's a clean copy of those files from my system in the ZIP file below. After you extract (drag and drop) them from the ZIP file to your desktop and unblock them, the TIP box below will explain how to replace them in your C:\Windows\System32 folder.



   Tip
You will need to take ownership and set permissions to "Allow" your account "Full Control" of the original file in your current installation before you will be allowed to replace it with the extracted copy.

If the system file is in use and you are unable to replace it with the extracted copy, then: Open a Command Prompt at boot.
Do steps 4B to 4D in this tutorial first to verify the drive letter of your Windows 7 drive. It's not always C: at boot.
Type in the command below to copy and replace the original file with the extracted replacement file.
Copy /Y "full path of extracted replacement file" "full path of original Windows 7 system file"
For example:
If the extracted replacement uDWM.DLL is on my desktop, then I would use type this in the command prompt at boot and press enter.

Copy /Y "C:\Users\User-name\Desktop\uDWM.dll" "C:\Windows\System32\uDWM.dll"




Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello,

A little background:

Around a year ago I had signed up for Private Internet Access, which installs the TAP9 driver (OpenVPN I believe). I started to get blue screens on my machine (Win7 Ultimate x64), so I installed it on a 2nd Windows machine (identical OS). Same thing. As soon as I started the VPN, blue screen. I installed VirtualBox VM software, same thing on both machines. After trying various things, I ended up sending the motherboard back to ASRock (It was a Z87 Professional). They found nothing wrong, but I ended up doing a fresh install of Win7 and everything was great for about a year. Then I started having machine lockups and found out that my SSDs (Samsung 840 EVOs) were victim to the slowdowns that a lot of people were complaining about. I tried upgrading the firmware and running their "fix", then the blue screens started to happen again, this time at random times. Removed the drives, did a fresh install onto some WD Black drives, and everything was working fine. I thought the motherboard had finally crapped out as even with the onboard LAN ports, the network icon would end up with a yellow exclamation mark after about 5 minutes of usage. I had to use an add-on card to get it to work, so I decided to just build a pretty much brand new system.

I just built it today:
ASRock Extreme6/ac / Intel i7-5930K (brand new)
32Gb G.skill DDR4 (new)
Samsung 850 Pro (apparently these drives did not have the same problems as the 840s) (new) ... Read more

I have a GF8200a mobo.
I bought some ram a while back and recently one of the sticks kinda stopped working so I sent for a replacement. During that time I had 3 1 gig sticks of ram in this mother board working fine. Today I got my replacement stick from kingston and I put it in the 4th slot and went to boot the computer. It would start up but no display on the screen and none of my usb hardware (mouse keyboard) would come on. I removed the stick went back to my old configuration and got the same issue. Finally I started changing how many sticks I had in what configuration and found that if I had only 2 sticks in the computer would start fine no matter which 2 sticks were in. But as soon as I go to add a 3rd stick of RAM no matter which stick it is I would get the same issue as above. Computer starts but no display or USB.

These are the infections AVG is picking up:

My OS is Windows 8
I use Google Chrome as my default browser but this problem persists with Firefox and IE as well. As of right now facebook.com, twitter.com, and twitch.tv will not load at all. The worst of it all is these are the three sites that I most commonly use. I was able to use all of them perfectly fine last night before i went to bed, and now they will not load at all, while other sites load perfectly fine. When i run a ping test through the CMD prompt for these sites

Here are some troubleshooting tips I have tried already:
Check if theirs a browser update (none needed)
Clear cache, cookies, history, etc...
Run a malware scan (0 threats detected)
Run a Virus scan (o threats detected)
Try opening page while using https instead of http
Flush DNS through CMD prompt
Once again only these select few websites wont load while all others work perfectly fine..
Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated. This has been going on for nearly 3 hours now.

Answer:Not sure if my MB supports IDE/SATA. Details of MB inside

Relevance 59.45%

Okay well the problem is my computer keeps freezing while I play games, directx games to be in specific but i havnt played any non direct x games.

Games I've played NBA live 2005, War3, CS:S, i never seem to freeze playing CS:S so it could be something else.

Another thing that could be taken note as that when I turn on my computer, my comp will freeze when it tests the memory in bios. Like it won't even say 'xxx OK' it'll just freeze. Then I restart and then it'll do it, but this is only sometimes, and ussaully always happens after I freeze during gameplay and have to restart.

I've tried formatting, and it didn't work, I've also tried uninstalling my firewire card that I installed recently which I thought was causing the problem, didn't help either. So anyone got any clues? I ran memtest on 700mb of my 1gb ram and all seems okay.

I've attached my DXDiag if you want to take a look at my system specs.
 

Answer:My Comp is unstable please help details inside

Sounds like a hardware problem. Bad memory or motherboard. Do you have more than one stick of RAM? If so try running the computer with just one. Some motherboards are picky about which brand and type of RAM you use.

Ok Techies, I need some real help on this one....

Older Gateway P3 500mhz last week was working fine...
I don't know the exact details it is my mom's PC and I am giving it a whirl at it... Was working fine then one day she says everytime she boots after bios black screen says"no OS found"

So I pick up thePC and bios won't and can't find a Hard drive.
Maybe bad drive, I remove and replace it with a good one w/ OS already installed.. NO OS found..
I insert Windows Xp disc in CD rom and it loads drivers and then begin to install, next "windows can't continue no HD detected.

Back to bios check Periph.. no primary (none)
secondary shows (cd rom)

I try swapping out

Hard drives..
New ribbon cable...
Switch IDE spots on mobo...
Try to run HD & CD on same line set one for slave.. (didn't work)
Try hooking up HD and remove CD
Bios still shows None for primary and secondary...

Bios recognizes CD roms... but won't detect any HD's...

I try to reset Bios (nvidia) w/ jumper... still same
Removed battery cleaned contacts ... still won't find HD
Ok I'm at wits end .. can't think of anything else to try...

Beg and plead anyone w/ ideas feel free to post...

Truly appreciate any help and suggestions
thnx
 

Answer:Bios/PC can't find HD details inside

Have you tried a different power connector on the hard drive? Also try entering the hard drive parameters manually in the BIOS.

Good luck.

Kilowatt

On a side note, it is possible that the CMOS battery is dead. On some older machines if the battery goes the BIOS won't detect the hard drive.

Hi, my ATMT MP3 player is completely unresponsive, however, the blue backlight is on with a central icon that usually appears when I'm loading music onto it. The icon is a tiny computer linked to usb or something. I had just added a song into the music_me file when my computer had problems and the MP3 window on the computer went white, so I disonnected the MP3 from my computer. It is now stuck on this screen and I have tried connecting it to my computer again and charging it and nothing is working. I am really concerned can anyone help????? This happened about half an hour ago. I would be grateful for any help.
 

Answer:My ATMT Mp3 is not working and is unresponsive. More details inside! Can anyone help?

Look in the manual to see if there isn't a way to reset the player.

Ever since i bought the computer, it has been a little weird.  every once in a while the computer would freeze up for a little bit and then resume running fine after 10 seconds.  As time went on the frequency of these events increased and the length of the lag increased. I recieved a few bsods with "internal power error".  I replaced the 750 watt psu with an 800 watt psu which didnt completely fix my problem, but changed it.  Boot is still slow, but occasionally it goes quite fast (still not as fast as it should) and the computer runs smoother with less freezing but it still happens and it is still a nuisance.  I have tried several clean windows installs.  i got some errors and warnings in the event viewer i will post that text below the system specs.  chkdsk didnt help either, im thinking about doing another one.

Hello, community of Bleeping Computer. I have come to this forum for aid of a rather ongoing problem. Yesterday, the computer (which I am currently using), had a very terrible fan problem, which was localized to the Graphics card. After cleaning the fan out, with some compressed air, the fan problem was fixed, albeit temporarily. Ironically another problem has occurred. Before fixing the fan, the PC was running fine; the programs ran under reasonable conditions with great response time. Now, any internet browser like FireFox, or Internet Explorer is inoperable. They will not start up. To add, most of the processes that I happen to run, occur at a very sluggish pace, like a snail crawling down a skyscraper. Trying to load up pages on the internet or opening simple programs take minutes to open up. This shouldn't be happening. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Computer Specifications:Windows 7 Home premium editionProcessor: AMD Phenom II X4 910Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 43508 GBs or RAM Thanks for reading,--Shotgun Nova

Tech guy at work suspected the video card. We replaced it with a new one and it still BSOD'ed

Initially when I am about to BSOD my display's will turn off. This is why we replaced the video card. Sometimes they come back on and I can proceed as normal, however when the audio cuts out I know it will then BSOD.

Once the audio cuts out or freezes on a note the BSOD will occur in about 10-seconds.

Thanks in advance dear gurus for all your help and consideration.

Answer:BSOD - Crashes randomly about once per day.. details inside

Security Software: ??? Make sure to install security software. I recommend either of these:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows coupled with Malwarebytes. Do not start the free trial of Malwarebytes. Just use the standalone version, update it, and scan your computer once a week with Malwarebytes and with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Good and Free system security combination.

After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.
Crashes are DirectX/graphics card related. DirectX comes installed with Windows, so this may indicate Windows corruption. It may also be that you have corrupted drivers or a graphics card hardware problem.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.
Follow the steps for Diagnosing basic problems with DirectX. To re-install your display card drivers as outlined in the DirectX link, use the following steps.

I recently lost over 500 episode of anime (about 100 gbs of info on my External Hard Drive). My DivX player (like Real Player) wasn't working so I downloaded it again and reinstalled it in the same place. It asked "Would you like to save over repeating files?" or something along those lines and i clicked "Yes to All". Somehow it deleted all of my anime episodes in the folders and now i really need help. Would anyone happen to know a software that is free i can use to get it all back, i am really pissed and i cant find anything without paying from 40$ and up... I need to find a free recovery program that will recover up to 100gb of info. Please help!

Oh yeah and if anyone knows any alternate ways to fix this please tell me that as well.

Thanks.

Okay everyone, I will post a quick history and get to down to business quickly.
 
I am usually a responsible adult in terms of computer protection, this time I wasn't. I stupidly downloaded and ran .exe files from applications-station trying to get free software and I regret it and I admit my stupidity.
I now have a problem with ad pop-ups in IE and Firefox(main browser), But more importantly I am worrid about other malware and possible key-loggers.
 
All help is greatly appreciated.
 
P.S. A full reset of FireFox seems to have rid of the pop-ups.
P.S.S. I will also post a MBAM log scan which I ran after the incident,it found ~60 potential threats. Maybe it will be of some use.
P.S.S.S. I see that others have been suggested NOT to post an MBAM log unless requested. I have removed the log for now. Feel free to request it.
P.S.S.S.S. Apparently it would be best if I did nothing and just waited for help. well... derp...
P.S.S.S.S.S. I should really stop adding these

Okay, so I sort of solved this issue, I think, but I don't have any clue why it happened. Which is why I'm posting this.

First, I booted my computer, it got past the bios setup but then the boot screen was very dark, blackened, if you will. Then it didn't load into windows, just a black screen. The monitor light was still on. It would not boot into safe mode.
No recent hardware changes have been made.

I then press the reset button. Goes through boot up, except this time at the windows boot screen, it shows it fine. But, it goes to a blank screen again before entering windows.

Okay, so I'm lost, I reset the bios, I then make sure everything is plugged in. I unplug my power cord, hold the power button down for 30 seconds. I do everything I can think of if it's hardware issue. Same problem occurs.

Finally I run the XP repair. I reboot and it works.

Did XP repair fix the issue, or is it a coincidence? What made the problem happen in the first place? And, have any of you heard of this issue before?

I appreciate all your help.

Answer:Weird boot up issue (details inside)

Im not trying to be funny, but... Are you still having this problem? If you fixed it then what are we trying to help you with? I mean its a Windows PC, sometimes this happens. This has happend to my PC and a cold boot or pressing reset is all it needed and it was fine. Now, if it hapens every time thats another story.

Regarding the Windows screen coming up, and then a few moments of a black screen before the login prompt or desktop display, that is a normal function. Nothing to fix there.
