dunno wats wrong...

Question: dunno wats wrong...


comp specs 1: 1.63 Ghz Athlon XP 1800+, 512 MB RAM DDR, 64MB Winfast Geforce 3 ti 200, Windows XP Pro Build 2600 w/ SP1
comp specs 2: 500 Mhz, 128 MB SDRAM, 16MB Integrated Motherboard Video Card, Windows XP Pro Build 2600 w/ SP1

router: Linksys BEFSR41 firmware 1.44.2z

i cant believe im having problems with this (ive taken the cisco CCNA course), but after reformatting the older comp (comp 2), i cant get the newer comp (comp 1) onto the network. ive done the normal xp network wizard, but the newer comp will error out no matter what setting i put it on. so i did everything manually, setting the ip addresses, resetting and reconfiguring the router, but all i can get is that each computer can see the other, and i can access files on the newer computer using the older computer. however, the newer computer cannot access the older computers files. thanks for any help.

Preferred Solution: dunno wats wrong...

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.)

Answer: dunno wats wrong...

I'll recommend the easy way, even though some forum members can't seem to understand why it works. Install the NETBEUI protocol on both machines, and I suspect you'll be browsing after that. It's on the XP CD in the VALUEADD directory.

ive got this new computer (spec.. 3.2Ghz intel 4, 2GB RAM, radeon 9550 128mb graphics card, audigy 2 sound card, xp sp 2 etc..)

i installed Rome: Total War and the Return of the King games today - and either only a small amount of time (after the intro for rome) or a longer time (when i wanted to exit on rotk) the game freezes, u get a jit jit repeated through the speakers and its inexitable. u have to restart to get out of there. these games played ok in my other comp, jst was very slow when running huge battles in rome.

im jst wondering if this sounds like a problem anyone here has had before, or if they have an idea wat it cld be. i think its pretty impossible that its RAM or hard drive related - coz they are top end. i intall the directx 9.0b that rome comes with - doesnt seem to take much time installing tho - its jst the acceptance screen and then the finished screen. i also downloaded and installed directx 9.0c and its not helping.. also, my old and favourite game 'civilisation: call to power' doesnt play at all. u click on play and nothing happens. i think that's all i know really... any help appreciated

Answer:graphics card? wats wrong plz?

most likely it's a graphics driver related problem. Try the latest ATi Drivers, or maybe the modded Omega ATi drivers.

for proper driver installation, get Driver Cleaner Pro, uninstall the driers from add/remove programs, boot to safe mode--run driver cleaner, reboot and install new drivers.

ok people brace yourself for this one...

my computer is connected to my house network through a usb wireless device and it has worked fine since i got it. i use p2p programs often and found that the limit on half-open connections is too low for me so i set out to find a fix after finding many sites that resommened and used the lvllord fix for this i got it and ran it. it said i had to reboot which i decided 2 do since i had also installed a utility for a new mouse that i got, which also needed a reboot.

so i rebooted my comp, can connect to the network fine, signal strength good, dhcp is working, but i cant access anything on the network. i cant get google, the router, the modem or even other computers on the network. so i think that the patch did somethin bad to the tcpip.sys file when i ran it so i hit the unistall button on it (though it says that the limit is still at 10 andnot 50 which is wat i changed it to??) i hit unistall, says it failed somethin 2 do with windows changin the file or somethin. anyway i thought that possibly the utility i installed did somethin (very remote, but nonetheless) so i unistalled it and rebooted, nuthin.

so i tried disconnecting the usb dongle and running a network cable and hooray it all works again. so that ruled out the .sys file being bad. so i thought id unistall the usb dongle and reinstall (maybe the driver didnt like the patch). but device manager locked up.

Answer:Dunno what's wrong!

Hello macaco and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. The first thing we need to do is update the operating system on this computer.Your operating system is extremely out of date. By not keeping the OS updated the computer is vulnerable to every infection on the net and in emails today and trying to repair an unpatched system is virtually impossible. For update purposes, Microsoft has even stopped supporting a system that is this far out of date. Go to the Windows Update site and install Service Pack 2. Once that is done, go back to the Windows Update site and install all available Critical Updates. This will patch the system with the most current security fixes and plug all the known holes which are present on this system.After all of the updates have been performed post a new HijackThis log back here using the Add Reply button and I will review it when it comes in.Cheers.OT

Answer:I really dunno whats wrong

Your Operating System and Internet Explorer versions are WAY out of date and represent a major security risk. After we fix your current problems, you must get updated. You need to install Service Pack 2 for security purposes.

Your HJT log shows no signs of the READ ME being run, please follow the steps below:

Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support

Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.
Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.

After doing ALL of the above and you still have a problem, make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps in the below thread to properly use HijackThis and attach the log:

Quote if i remove the cdrom and the harddisk...the computer would wait for both and would not start up....You probably don't want to remove the hard drive, yet. That'll cause you some problems.  Please post more specs. Like, Processor type and speed, motherboard model, RAM, video card model, and Windows version. Too much is better than not enough. When did this problem happen? Can you remember what you were doing right before it started happening? Give us as much info as possible to work with.

whats the differnece bettween a wired router and wired switch . ethernet?

Answer:wats the difference

A router is a device that forwards data packets along networks. In home networks the router is given the IP addy assigned by your ISP and then distributes IP addy's to the terminals connected to network -- most commonly with DHCP.

A switch works much the same way, without the IP address control.

Answer:Wats Happening To My Computer? Help!

Your system is terribly infected. Problem with these infections nowadays is, it causes a lot of damage. Even if we clean the malware off your system, I can't guarantee that your system will be clean afterwards, because these infections/bundles leave a lot of leftovers behind that most scanners won't even recognise and logs won't show.Also, I can't promise you we can repair all the damage it caused... Even after cleaning the malware, you can still get errors afterwards because of the damage. Solving these is not always possible since it will be searching for a needle in a haystack to find the right cause and solution.So, we can try to clean this up and do what we can, but keep in mind that we can't solve ALL problems this malware already caused.In light of this it would be wise for you to back up any files and folders that you don't want to lose before we start. Reason I am telling this is because when a system is so terribly infected and we try to clean this up manually, the damage that is already present may interfere with our removal attempts.One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and Download and Execute filesI would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords wh... Read more

Hey everyone i m new to all the overclockign and i was wondering wats the most juice(optimal Perfomance) i can get out of my system
Following are the specs (none is overclocked or modded in anyway)

1.6GHz P4
256MB pc133
40GIG Seagate Baracuda

ATI Radeon 9200SE video Card(<--how can i overclock this)
Hercules MUSE 5.1DVD sound card

If you guys can tell me how to get the most outta this system that wud b gr8 thanks alot :giddy:

Answer:Wats the most juice i can get out of my system


Hey man, looking at your specs im guesing you would not get much out of ur RAM seeing as it is 133MHz and prob unbranded, the cpu however has got potential, i have never owned a P4 so i dunno much bout them but i have seen people get an increase o about 400/500Mhz with 1.4ghz P4's so there is hope! I had a 9200 once an i couldn't get much out of it, got bout 30mhz core increase and 40 mhz ram increase before i started getting artifacts all over the screen!

Tips - If overclocking the CPU invest in a high quality cooler to let you get the most out of it.

To be honest you could do with a complete upgrade but if thats all you got then happy overclocking! let us know how u get on!

I've heard that i875P is good from some people and that it isn't so great from I'm guessing that it doesn't really matter which of the 2 you pick.

Question: i dunno

This seems pretty easy but,this is what it does during installation.Should the spaces be removed along with the semi-colon or is this a normal config.Just seems a little odd to me..
C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\;C:\Python25;C:\progra~1\common~1\gtk\2.0\bin; ;C:\RUBY\BIN

Answer:i dunno

What you have is a Windows rendition of $PATH which delineates the various directories that are searched to find a command to be executed.

Spaces are ok for file names and directory names on Windows systems. So, I would say leave them as is.

To demonstrate, you can put an executable with a unique name, e.g. hello, in any one of the directories - i.e. separated by the ';' character in $PATH, then position your command window to your $HOME directory, and give the command:
$ hello
where hello is the executable name of the hello world program that just prints out the words: Hello, world!

I would then move the hello executable back to your home directory.

Unless your installation triggered an error message regarding $PATH - it is nothing to worry about.

Hi Steve

Guessing it wont go into Safe Mode either and recycles back to same screen?

Could try a repair of windows and boot to OS CD.

Or as you say just bite bullet and go for clean install, but does the HD have data thats needed to be recovered first? if so I did a weird trick a while back, just one of those weird moments when a spark of genius jumps out and as I have Acronis True Image 2009 installed, and a rescuse CD created it booted to that and managed to be able to just Image the My Documents folders and other folders to portable HD, then formatted PC and installed Windows XP again, installed the 15day trial of Acronis 2009 (available from Majorgeeks) on that PC, plugged in the portable HD and managed to drill down into the Image and right click copy and pasted the folders to the desktop and then left the user to move them into the correct folders.

Question: dunno what to do

I'm at a crossroads here. On one hand I really want to have my computer built VERY soon as I only have 2 more parts to order, and on the other han dI really want WIn Vista since it will be the next step in innovation and be 64 bit, and be required by most games coming out in Jan and after (I think)

problem is that Vista doesn't some out till end of Jan, and I want this comp done by end of Dec. I was thinking about getting Win XP media center to maybe hold me over but I don't know. In a month I would just be shelling out another $200 for Vista so I would have wasted so much money. What should I do!!

Answer:dunno what to do

just get xp and use it, and don't get vista for a couple of years. i have yet to hear of any games that say they will be vista only. the only thing vista has over xp gaming wise id dx10, and the 1st vid card t support it just came out and is over 600usd. so unless you have the nvidia 8800, you won't even be seeing dx10 in use, even if you get a game that uses it (i don't believe any are out yet). after using vista rc1 for a while, i just went back to xp. for me vista didn't give enouph tweeking power over my system to get the most speed for my gaming. the os just simply doesn't allow for 100% user control over the os like xp is. vista is just too concerned about protecting you and its self.

Hi chaps having a nightmare with pc at moment and looking for some ideas please.

To cut a long story short I was playin EQ2 and my pc went kaputt.

At first it would not boot up and kept changing the cpu size from 1500 to 2800.

Then I unplugged and replugged everything and 9/10 it would not boot up at all as in nothing would come up on monitor.

Eventually i had to call an engineer out who charged 20 quid for first hour 45 for 2nd fortunately he wasnt there for more than an hour.

He tested everything and was dumb founded. Sometimes it would boot up then freeze most of the time it would just reboot and then sometimes not even boot at all(using my pc as we speak).

He ultimately thought it was my memory so i slipped him 20 quid and went and bought some new memory. Stupidly guy behind the counter has given me pc 3200 ddr400 i swapped the memory round and it kept booting but restarting as i click on icon to log in(I meant to get pc 2700 ddr333).

My chip is amd athlon 2800

ATI radeon 9800 xt pro

On board ac97 sound cmedia

I have been reading on net that it might be my psu but i thought 400w should be enuf. I guess i could buy a larger model 550w maybe.

Or maybe its my mother board as sometimes it lets me boot up like it is now but it will probably reboot half way thru this message.

Check your fans. That 52 is kinda warm for the MB.(could be the sensors are crossed and the 52 is really the CPU) Make sure the fan is running in the power supply. That fan is the exhaust fan for the case. If it's not running, the power supply could be overheating and causing problems. A good cleaning with compressed air wouldn't hurt anything.

Question: Dunno. IP related?

My friend accesses his bank account from home using Firefox with no trouble. He comes to the shop and Chase makes him jump through hoops (call Chase, get security code) which takes a lot of time. We use google Chrome here. So I said I will download Firefox so you can get around that problem. My question is this: if he has Firefox at home and uses Firefox at the shop, wouldn't that change the IP, thus triggering the banks security settings? Does that mean he has to use the same computer at the same location all the time? Thanks

Answer:Dunno. IP related?

Not necessarily, some folks are assigned 'Dynamic' IP addresses by their IS Providers (A different IP address each time they connect, or reboot their router), which would mean the bank security would be on permanent alarm status.

Most banks just use login passwords - Mine has 2, an 8-digit number and a 5-digit number, entered on 2 separate pages. Also, my 'Mozilla Seamonkey' browser offers to remember any login details, I don't know whether Firefox has that facility or not.

The only thing to remember is that the shop-PC is set to NOT remember any login details (usually a tick-box on the login page) - If the home PC is accessed by your friend alone (or folks he trusts), then the 'Remember me' tick-box can be ticked (if available).

My friend has no idea whats wrong, he had the same problem and dell had to come out and fix it. I don't have it under warranty anymore and we really don't have dell anywhere near us.

It would mean a lot if you were able to help me. Sorry i can't capture the ping sound, but think of pong. Sometimes it is higher pitched, others it is low. But it is really really strange.

Answer:I dunno any other way to describe..

If this helps at all, i believe i have found the error from the blue screen of death in event view. Couple minutes after this event it is a list of programs starting.

Hi, starting from yesterday night I've been getting these hits from my Kerio Firewall where a bunch of nowheres try to connect to my "Task Scheduler Engine" and the application involved on my PC is c:/Programs/WINNT/system32/mstask.exe
I've scanned the file using Norton AntiVirus but it was not identified as a virus. I tried to quarantine it but even after the quarantine there's still hits from my Kerio Firewall.
Also, at the same time I've found a Download.Trojan virus in my PC and I've deleted it. I am not sure if there is any connection between the Trojan virus and mstask.exe.
As I am a total idiot in computers, can someone tell me if this is a virus and what should I do with it. I would greatly appreciate any help.

Answer:I dunno if this is a virus

Hi innewton, mstask is a windows scheduler, not sure why it it coming up as a virus, I included a link to info on it.

Also you might try a different firewall, I use sygate it's free and very good, heres a link.

Good luck.

my pc crashes when playing games. initially i thought this was a lot of problems but after resitting all of the pc and removing a faulty stick of ram i am still crashing. i cant properly install the radeon 9250 drivers from the ATI site when i download them and i have re-dloaded them several times to make sure it wasnt the download that was corrupted. for this reason i have no catalyst control cente even tho my dload included it. the pc tends to crash when loading new areas and other load intensive actions. i play no games that need a top end or even mid range pc to operate properly. my hard drive has recently been improved - it was properly cleaned before installing. it may have been in storage for upto a year before i put it in my pc but it was stored properly (in a uv bag in a box in a store room with many others).

i dont know if the problem is purely down to my graphics not installing properly tho i wonder if this is because my pc isnt saving data correctly.

games i play: Guild Wars, Anarchy Online (more crashing in GW tho i dunno if that game has installed properly either)

pc specs: 2100+ athlon processor, 512mb RAM, radeon 9250 gfx card. MOBO that supports all 3. windows xp 32x operating system (copy)

if anyone has a clue where to help me start that would be brilliant

Answer:i dunno where to start

So have you tested the memory? If not I'd do it, or even do it again to make sure you don't have more memory problems:

Also inspect the capacitors on the motherboard, see here for what they look like:

Also for the ATI drivers, you have to use version 6.5 or older, the latest no longer support the Radeon 9250 and older cards.

Alright, so I recently bought a harddrive from TigerDirect which ended up being faulty (Went much slower than it should have) So I deleted the partition and went and exchanged it. However, in doing so, my dual boot menu (Which had xp and vista on it) STILL has the vista from the previous harddrive on it and i have now a fresh copy of vista installed on the new harddrive, so there are 3 on the boot menu.

Windows XP

In that order, the 3rd vista will not work, and I do not know how to get rid of it. I don't want it to work, as there's no files at ALL for it to run off of, but I wish to know how to get it off of the boot menu. If anyone knows, please help.


Answer:Help I did something stupid and dunno what to do

You can do it easily just by editing boot.ini which is on your active partition...First you have to tell windows to show you hidden files, go to My computer, on the Tools menu click on Folder options...than on the View tab you have to select "Show hidden files an folders" you can see your boot.ini fail on C: drive..right click on it and open with notepad...where it says [operating systems] you should have only 2 operative systems and you can delete the third one (old vista)...if you got any questions just post...cheers

Hi there!
A couple of days ago, in trying to download a torrent I think I caught a malware. I thought BitDefender 2010, my AntiVirus, had put it in quarantine but for the past two days, everytime I boot into Windows 7, before I do anything, some crash-report window appears (today they were 3!) I ran a BitDefender "deep scan" but after some 2 hrs it came up clean. Clearly there's something wrong because as soon as I boot Win7 the windows keep popping up. See picture attached.
Can anyone suggest some solution to this problem?
Thank you for your time.

Answer:Got a Virus but dunno even its name!

I'm posting the DDS.txt and attaching the files. I also downloaded and ran gmer.exe but for some unknown reason it stops working after sometime, maybe it's the virus' effect (I first turned off BitDefender Antivirus).
I am therefore unable to post the ark.txt file. Hope someone can help me. Thanks.

Hello there,As I've said in the topic title, I'm at my wits end with this computer and don't know what to do. I've redone it countless times, (god knows how many) even bought a new hard drive just recently... and still, it's messed up. I've never experienced anything like this though. It takes forever to start up in the first place mainly staying at the windows loading page for about 20 minutes then finally turning on. Then it takes forever again to start the programs. Most recently, when I got onto Youtube it skips every 2 seconds, and now, it's screwing up my actual music on the computer speeding it up and slowing it down (like a program is running at the same time causing it to skip like that). I've deleted all my caches (the ones that will delete anyway) all my temporary internet files. I dunno what to do, your help would be much appreciated. Also, for a while there my computer would freeze up every once in a while, programs freezing, the mouse freezing, the whole deal.EDIT: Also, I just remembered this. When I would sign on msn messenger sometimes it would close it out completely out of nowhere. I'd do the troubleshoot and then it says theres a problem with the keyports. So, then I try to disable my internet... freezes up, and when it finally disables. I go to connect it and all it says is connection failed. I have to reboot my computer just to restart msn.

Answer:I Dunno's HJT logs

Hi and welcome to TSF! You are not in very bad shape there.

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. Windows XP's 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).

Turn off system restore by right clicking on My Computer and go to Properties->System Restore and check the box for Turn off System Restore. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your computer. After we are finished with your log file and verified that it's clean, you may turn it back on and create a new restore point... Read more

Greetings people of the Sevenforums community.

My computer is pretty old. It's been here since like 2006(7).
The only thing that has been replaced so far is the GFX Card because it died and nothing more..

But for a very long time now, like 12-8-2013 it has been excessively BSOD'ing. With different error types and I'm really clueless about what to do..

I got a nice list of minidumps zipped into a folder.
(Note: I didn't use the sevenforums tool on the PC, because it crashes before I even get to windows)

I'll attach the .zip.. hope anyone can be of help.

With a friendly greet,

Ok i dont know very little about vid cards and am looking to upgrade my piece of crap geforce4 mx440. My comp specs are AMD XP 1700+ (buying a new processor long with vid card, probably XP 2800+), 1gb DDR, 400watt power, 8x AGP motherboard. I only want to spend 100-150 and have been told to buy the geforce4 FX5700 Ultra and that its the best card in that price range although the top end of that range. Is there any cheaper or better cards for that price?? Oh by the way i think i like the geforce over ATI been told the drivers are better so if its an ATI card it would have to be quite a bit better than the 5700 ultra.

Any input is appreciated =)

I have Windows XP Pro. upgraded from Windows Home. Its Medion MD40100 Notebook, Pentium 4. I reformated the Harddisk/copied everything on external Harddrive and upgraded to Windows XP Professional. Know my USB ports don't work, or do they?

I have a mouse and seperate keyboard attached through USB (i have 4 ports on the back of the laptop) and IF AND ONLY IF..they are connected on a reboot they work. If i unplug them after the setup is complete, they will not work again unless I shut off/ plug them in/ reboot. Then poof they work again. None of these ports seem to work after the start up.

My system will not boot with the external harddrive plugged in, and so thus will certainly not work after the start up. It doesn't turn on and doesn't appear in Device Manager or anywhere on the computer system. Windows XP does not even report: new hardware attached. Nothing.

any help or suggestions would be greatly apppreciated.


Answer:i dunno what to do anymore!

I should also note: If I need to buy something, i will, I just really need access to the external Harddrive as it has all my backup information. Thanks again.

hey guys i got this issue but i dunno what the problem is because when i play need for speed most wnated i dont get this issue but when i play fear combat i can play maybe somtimes for hours or maybe just 15 mins and i get these red artifacts and the pc just freezes at that point.

I got an gainward 8800gt 1gb but i had the same issue with a 8600gts i had before.
my spec ares as follows:

x2 5200
hiper 880w psu
msi k9n sli mobo
4gb ocz reaper x memory
2gb kingston memory
64bit vista

let me know if u need more info but im really confused why this is happening can anyone shed light on this.

Answer:Red artifacts Dunno Why!

Your 64-Bit Vista is probably contributing to this problem. If you are a gamer, why a64-bit Operating System?

I bought an ASUS internal DVD Writer yesterday.
after installng it in my CPU and run the computer

i saw a message upon boot on the screen i can see

"Secondary IDE channel NO 80 conductor installed"

what does that means? is my DVD writer broken?

but i can enter my windows.. so im wondering what does the message means,,

slave = CD-ROM
Secondary = DVD Writer
slave = CD Writer...
also i have noticed that if i forgot to close the DVD Writer and turn off the computer, it does not close automatic before shutting down.- leaving the DVD writer open..
the other two drives close upon shutting down..
so is the DVD writer broken?

i want to know if its broken, so that i could return it to the shop..
but i want to make sure if its really broken.. i dont want to humilate myself on the shop..

thank you.. sorry for bad english..

Answer:Help me please... i dunno if my DVD Writer is broken...

OK... here's what happened. I was browsing files on my PC, when all of a suddent everything from "G" down in my MP3 folder disappears. I figure, whatever, windows is acting up (what else is new) and restart... well, after that,they're still not showing up. Hm I say, this isn't good (60GB of MP3s going away? Ah!) So, I check a couple of things.
1) Windows is still telling me the drive is as full as it was previously. It's a 240GB partition, and is roughly 99% full, has been for quite some time now, and windows as I said is saying it still is. OK, so the data is there, right?
2 Winamp test. I fire up winamp, que up some PanterA, and hey, it starts to play Woohoo! The files aren't gone/corrupt etc. I'm thinking it's not a HDD failure.
3) Command Prompt test. I fire up XPs command prompt (why oh why did they do away with DOS!). At first I was curious why 'ls' didn't work, but then got my OSes straight and got my way to my MP3 folder. I do a "dir /p" here. enter...enter...enter...enter... gets to that G spot (heh) and then displays "File Not Found". <-- my face when I read this. File Not Found? Wtf mate!
4) drive check. Next I run windows scan-disk junk on it. It comes up with no errors etc... cool.
5) Fire up everest to check SMART data. Hey, everything checks out here, also.
This is when I start really saying wth is going on.
6) Partition Magic! Ah, it'll tell me if something is wrong somwh... Read more

Answer:Dunno where else to put this... MP3s lost?

Nevermind, I hear the HDD tick now. She's a goin'.Click to expand...

I'd say its time to start backing up. Winamp has a burning plug-in, no?

I think it may be my GPU; Asus GTX 280.

Sometimes after I login into my user the screen goes weird (2 tone red and black, looks pixelated too). I will try to take a pic of it when it next happens and upload it. when this happens i just reboot and hope it works properly, most of the time it does.
this also happens seemingly at random during games i play (mount and blade warband atm).

cpu: intel quad q6700
gpu: asus gtx 280
Hard drive: WD caviar black 750 gig
psu: corsair 750
mobo: p5nesli

is my gpu dying?

Answer:I crash, dunno what's causing it

Hello !!

Follow this article Run Selective Startup using System Configuration and reboot in Selective Startup and see if that fixes your problem.

Hi guys,

Sorry if similar problem had been covered before, but i really don't know where to start, searching doesn't help me much tbh. Ok here's the problem i'm having right now:

All of sudden, when i start my com today, my headset just stop working. However, i checked the headset with my friend's com, and it's ok so it gotta be my com's problem. For some reason, when i checked my "sound & audio device", there's none device found there.

Tried restart, and reinstall driver, nothing seems to work. The only i can think of now is my onboard integrated soundmax driver failed. However, problem doesn't just stop here! I found the driver on net, and when i tried to install it, it keep saying it can't extract specific file "soundmax\sys\cleanup.exe" The file definitely exist in the original rar folder, but it just won't extract that particular file! Anyway i can't bypass this problem, i really need the driver installed, coz i'm basically without any sound driver atm which make sense none of the device work

Would appreciate any helps here, coz i'd hate to reformat my com for simple matter like this! If this has been covered, please kindly direct me to the right link. Cheers guys

P/S i'm using the Logitech USB headset btw...

im new to this stuff so bare with me sorry. well i formatted and upgrade my Vaio Cs 32bit VGN-CS23G from vista to windows 7. and my class mate says i need to find some drivers. i found a list on this vaio website, but i didnt know which one i needed. thanks.

Answer:i dunno which drivers to install

You may not need any driver. When you look in Device Manager are there any yellow exclamation marks showing? In Windows 7, go into Control Panel>System and Security>System>Device Manger.

For your Reference, here is the support page for your computer. Use the drop down box to pick your OS.

That's my HiJackThis file, before I begin my issue.

Ok, seems my mom got on my pc a few days back and when I came back from my trip, my PC would not run World of Warcraft because some of the files were corrupt. I knew about this issue and knew it was some sort of virus, trojan, spyware, w/e. Just to play it safe I ran WOW Repair Kit to search the files to see if anything was corrupt, and it came back clean... So now for sure it's something wrong with my PC.

Other symptoms I knew it is going wrong, I wanted to dl HiJackThis and put it into the search on I clicked on link to HiJackThis and it took me to Stopzilla? or something like that. I've been running the past few days AVG antispyware and nothing, I get some trojans repeatedly showing up, I delete and when I restart and rescan it'll just come back sometimes.


Answer:Trojan? Spyware? Dunno [HELP!]

I cannot use IE. It simply will not open. When I open it without add ons it will open but when I try to leave the blank page it crashes and leaves "view downloads" open. And any program that uses IE causes a massive amount of errors saying "C:\Windows\system32\mshtml.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support." However I can't re-install IE because it won't let me install it while it's already installed and it won't let me uninstall because when I go to programs and features>manage updates and right click on IE11 to uninstall it comes up saying "An error has occurred. Not all of the updates were successfully uninstalled." I also tried taking mshtml.dll from my fiance's computer and pasting it over mine but it says I don't have permission (even though I am administrator). This seems like some sort of cruel joke. Catch 22 everywhere. HALP

Answer:MSHTML.DLL corrupt dunno how to fix it.

Let's start with this...

Please follow the Windows Update Posting Instructions and post the requested data
If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

A while back, whenever I put CD or connected a camera to my computer, it used to pop a menu up with what I wanted to do with it. But now when I insert a CD it just spins the CD and I have to go open the CD folder to record stuff to it or open WMP to listen to it.

How do I get this menu back?

Answer:I need some help (dunno what to call the problem)

Open Windows Explorer by pressing the Windows + "e" key.

Right-click the desired CD-ROM and select Properties from the menu:
Select the AutoPlay tab.
The top dropdown has different selections as: Pictures, Music, DVD, etc. Just select each one and at the bottom:
Tick the radio button:
Prompt me each time to choose an action then Apply and OK.
