Question: CPU fan won't work properly

After installing windows 7 cpu fan won't run higher then 3125 rpm. So for the desktop applications it's ok but when i enter the game cpu temp. goes to 60 - 70 celsius. Before win 7 i had xp and it worked just fine.

So if anyone have any solution, please help.

Tnx!

Preferred Solution: CPU fan won't work properly

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.)

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing changed.
- disk clean up, nothing changed
- registry clean, nothing changed
- CURRENTLY defragging my C drive, hope something changes..

Anyone know what the heck's going on!?
Anyone got any suggestions on what to do next?
Anything helps and would be greatly appreciated!
 

Answer:Apps not starting properly, sys. recov. doesn't work, can't shut down properly, etc..

no replies yet?

anyway, just stopped by to say that when shutting down, it takes forever to get to the "Saving your settings..." screen, and that's where I decided that it stops and nothing else after that.
Defragged my C drive, still no results besides the computer feeling a bit smoother-running o_o

The title pretty much says it all. I'm honestly at the end of my rope. Device manager replies all is well, yet sound stopped working overnight.

It isn't muted,I'm not that oblivious.

I own Advanced System Care Pro ( and consequently, Driver Booster ) so I have already all of my drivers up to date, as well as any other problems I might have had.

Used a bunch of other scanners to figure out the problem to no avail. Plugging some headphones in also doesn't cut it, so it made me think that perhaps the hardware was actually fine and some software conflict was the cause of the problem. I have no freaking clue anymore, should I just get mad and yell at my computer for an hour or so to relieve stress now??
 

Answer:Laptop audio refuses to work, all devices work properly, sound isn't muted. Help?

First we need to know the EXACT make and model number of the laptop in question. Secondly the only place you should be looking for drivers for you laptop is the laptop manufacturers support website. Driver scanners really are not helpful.

Hi,

My Sat Pro 6100 has just been away for the usual motherboard and power board replacement with Toshiba, but now I have a strange keyboard problem.

When I turn it on, all the keys work. After a few minutes, '3' doesn't work, then 'r' fails, then '5','7','8','9','0' stop working. At this stage I can feel something getting very hot under the middle of the keyboard. A reboot and no keys work. Another reboot with an external PS2 keyboard, and the internal keyboard is still faulty (some keys work, others don't) but the external one works correctly.

Now if the pc didn't get so hot under the middle of the internal keyboard, then I would conclude that the keyboard was faulty, but for it to fail slowly and sequentially like this, and it fails the same way every day (Since the Toshiba rebuild!).

Maybe, internal keyboard controller overheating?
Does anyone know what this might be? :-(

Cheers,
Homer

Answer:Keyboard on Sat Pro 6100 doesn't work properly after remedial work

Right under the keyboard of your pro 6100 is the VGA graphics controller (the keyboard cable plugs into the same card). It is normal that this part becomes warm during usage.

It's strange that your problem appears after a while and not right away.

It might be just an improper reseating of the keyboard cable (it's a thin layer like a photo film-negative) that easily pops out, but... it can be something more serious, too. (Especially since you had the upgrade done where hardware had to be changed)

I would consult the service center once again and ask for instructions how to deal with this. Don't ignore it (by using an external keyboard instead of the malfunctioning internal) as it might end up into something more serious soon...

Regards

My "gamer" -PC has lost its connection to the rest of my LAN, WDlive, laptop.
The laptop can not "see" my "gamer" -PC more. And yet. Do I open a cmd in my "gamer" -PC and writes PING PHOTO PC (called my laptop), then the corresponding fine, but in the Windows network can not be seen, and I can not connect or network drive to it. Oddly enough, I have always had a network drive on "gamer" looking for PHOTO-PC, and this old connection still works fine, even though I reboot both computers
As I see it, so can the PCs well find each other in a CMD, but not in Windows Explorer or Total Commander. Both PCs are members of the same workgroup. I have been through all the settings in "Network and Sharing Center" and they are 110% identical (there are not corrected in them, since that time it worked).
Is there perhaps a service not running? Or a policy that has been changed?

On my laptop I have a DVD CDRW combo drive (ie. I can watch DVDs and burn CDs). However the past three times I have tried to burn a music CD the buffer rate goes all the way down, then fixes itself, but shortly after completely fails and the burning process stops at 30%.

Variables:
>I have not changed the type of CD I use when burning since I have had the laptop.
>I have always used Nero burning software.
>I have installed new RAM recently.

Basically, I am wondering if there is anything I can do to fix this error. If it is the RAM that caused this (I'm pretty sure the errors started shortly after new RAM) will taking it out fix it? Should I try a new burning suite? If the problem is not fixable the laptop is still covered under a 12 month HP warranty and 3 year extended warranty so I can get it replaced or fixed but I would rather that be the last resort. Any help would be great, I don't know anything about hardware issues, etc.

My CD/DVD rom shows up in my device manager & states it is working properly.
Any disc that I put into the drive is not recognized. It pulls up zero info from the disc as if it can not read it. If I simply select play (even though no info is showing) I get the windows notice to add media to that drive.I thought the drive had died and I was ready to install a new one. BUT..
I ran the installed PC-Doctor program that is a HP diagnostic program and during that test, the drive played just fine. There are multiple test for the DVD/CD rom and it passed every test in the PC-Doctor program.
But after the test, I again placed different CD's , DVD's into it, and nothing.

2) Regedit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup>ServicePackSourcePath, where I changed location to "D:\".
3) Restarted computer, re-tried "sfc /scannow", after which still got "...need XP CD for more..."This was supposed to prevent the latter request for the CD, which didn't work for me anyway.

Answer:Qosmio F20-137 would not work properly

Hi,

so, check your RAM with the help of Memtest86, because this sounds like a hardware issue. Or maybe it will better to download a knoppix-live-cd from the internet and try it with this one.
I don?t want to say that you have a hardware failure, you can test it, if you just remove one of your memory modules or exchange the harddisk, to check if one of these components is faulty and causes
the "freeze" of your machine.

If you encounter after all that checks the same problem, then you only the choice to bring your machine to a authorized service partner or your dealer, they have to check your machine then on hardware failures.

Good luck

Hi, I've made a bit of a mess of my computer and now don't know what to do. It won't start up properly at all now. It's a Packard Bell, about 1 1/2 years old, operating on Vista Basic.
Basically, I downloaded a film that I think was dodgy and now it's caused me all sorts of problems and I'm worried I may have lost everything on my hard drive. After I realised the film was no good, I deleted it and thought I better run a quick virus scan, just in case. I use AVG for this. I started the scan and walked away but a minute or two later I heard the pc 'pip' as if it was turning itself back on. Then I got the black and white screen and just two options ; 'Start Windows Normally' and 'Start Windows Recovery'. I tried to start normally but after the splash screen, the screen just stays black and nothing happens. Then I turned off/on and tried the 'Windows Recovery' option. From the menu within this option, I took the ioption to go back to a restore point, which involved several scans to fix any problems first (which lasted about 45 mins). The scans said that they could find nothing wrong with the system but it still wouldn't start from the last restore point. I also tried other options in this menu, such as letting the Windows recover try to fix files etc. but still no good. When I start the computer, I still just get the two options, both of which seem a bit futile now.

Answer:Can't get my computer to work properly - Help!

You'll have to see if the data still exists on the drive before doing anything else.
There's several ways to do this, the easiest way is to access it by the Command Prompt option in the Startup Repair menu (which I think that you're getting to).

If the data is still intact, you'll have to take measures to recover the data before proceeding. Let us know if the data is there and we'll work from that.

Dear readers.

Just bod an Acer with Windows 7 Home Premium .
After running the Windows 7 install ( with all available updates downloaded) it looked perfect.
But then I found out that something was NOK


Problem description.

As example, I start up Skype ( it runs ok)
Now I want to quit the program ( not using the X, but terminate it)

I click on my Windows task bar and select Skype

Then I click my right mouse button and again a pop up menu appears (still ok) with several options for this program amongs them the desired option Quit
I select quit

Now the problem occurs:

When I click on the choosen option, a system file opens.
That?s it. ( its applicable for all options and the command opens always the same file)

Computer/Acer C:/windows/system32

This happens for all programs in the Start menu.
Nothing else happens, the system runs normal but the desired operation is not been performed.. I can quit the window with the sysyem file appearing . All looks fine but of course the program is still running


When I now really want to stop a program I need to go to taskmanager (by pressing CRL/ALT/DEL) to abort it.

Whats wrong with my Windows 7?
Started an SFC scan, no problems detected.

HELP please, thx.

Hi, after a few minutes of usage, or moving the PC while running. Causes the screen to go black with dottes of colour on..

After that the comp. either shutsdown, and the little lights that shows if the PC gets power starts to blink.
Allthough, i removed the battery and im using only the power from the adapter. And then it works fine, but that means i cant move the pc, or it will shut down.
Do i need a new battery? And if i do, where do i get it?

If anyone has had the same problem as me, how did you solve it? (im from sweden btw)

Thank you, (sorry for the bad english><)

Answer:Qosmio F20 does not work properly

Hi there,

it sounds strange, I never heard that a battery would be the cause for such error. Maybe it would be interesting if you can reproduce the
error when attaching the battery back to the machine. If the error appears again, try first to update the bios to the newest available and
if the error persists, bring your machine to a local service partner.

I think maybe it?s a hardware-related problem, but I cannot tell you securely if yes or not.

If you need really a servicepartner, then follow this link to find the nearest available in your country:

Hi Sean,

With all of these multiple problems you listed here and considering the fact that; according to your last post, you have had these problems for over a week and they have gotten only worse over time: My suggestion would be to back up all of your docs, picture, music, email settings, and files and then reformat and reinstall Windows XP.

I mean, if you think about this for a second: A reinstall of Windows will take only about a few hours or so; and with all of these problems you're experiencing (which could take weeks just to figure out what the problem actually is; much less fix it) you are better off doing the reinstall of Windows XP in my opinion.

If you do not have the Windows XP install disk you can get one from Dell support, either via their support site or by calling them. You can also call Dell directly at this number 1-800-WWW-DELL. Here are the three Dell Service Dept numbers as well (800)-820-8965 or (800)-624-9897 or (800)-627-1170. You can also try contacting Dell via this online tech support link.

Last year I bought a Dell 8400 (from eBay) which did not come with the Win XP Pro disk. Someone in another forum told me that Dell support would provide a Dell Win XP Reinstall (at either no cost or perhaps a small fee or shipping). All I had to do was to provide the express service code and prove th... Read more

Hello all :) About 3 months ago I downloaded a RC to try W7 out and I had a problem with MSN, which froze for about 2 seconds whenever I tried to open up a conversation with someone.. I just went back to Vista thinking that this would be fixed in the final version of W7.

But I bought it last week.. installed everything and now I'm having the same problem again. It's just annoying and stupid because I dont get how MSN works slow on a high end PC. Anyway, I had Eset Smart Security installed, I unistalled it and went back to my old version of Nod32 Antivirus, and this seemed to fix the problem somehow for most of the day. Late at night it happened again. I have to close MSN and re open it to fix it for a while it seems..

For some reason on my two computers that run windows 10, I am not able to connect to ANY VPN server that is not hosted in the US, I am dumbfounded as pretty much I am the ONLY one with this problem and have no idea where to go for help. Mind you, on my phone all VPN'S work regardless of location. Also, I switch networks every week back and forth with the same problem on both networks, so I do not think it is a network issue? Anyways please help me in my struggles.

OS: windows 10
VPN used: VPN gate

Hey, So I updated the Y510P to windoes 8.1 (Most regretted thing I've done with this laptop, that includes doing a battery reset.)  As many people have found out there are issues with 8.1 and SLI. I used the recomended BIOS update, and that seemed to fix the issue.  Unfortunatly, for some reason I'm not sure about, the 750M does not seem to be working right. Before the windows 8.1, and after updating the BIOS, League of Legens ran at the 60 FPS capped at max settings.  After the 8.1 and now, LoL will run around 10-15 FPS at max settings, and only 25 FPS at the lowest graphics settings.  I'm not sure why the laptop's performance has dropped.  I'm also getting major lag in Path of Exiles, where I used to have no issues playing it.  As I mentioned, I have used the BIOS update, and it did fix the issue I had with 8.1  I've specified that the laptop use the 750M as the default graphics GPU, and in the GPU monitor, the games show up and using it.  But as I've stated, their performance is at par with using the integrated  Intell graphics card.  Any thoughts or suggestions of what I can try to fix this issue would be greatly appreaciated. Sincerly,Jinotad.

I am a hold off and planned to keep Windows 7 to EOL in 2020. I recently did a Windows 7 to 10 upgrade for a friend and was so delighted with it that I now updated my own system to Windows 10. Very smooth install, update a few drivers and some programs, but working very well. Except for Mail.

What kind of joke is this Windows 7 Mail? It has to be the prettiest mail client I ever used, and the most inept and useless one at that. I install my AT&T email accounts and they configure nicely, but some never sync. I send myself some test mails, they never arrive but do arrive on my Android phone. There is no contact list, but typing a few bits into the To: line offers contact suggestions. This AT&T account I use most for friends and when I get, say, 2 emails and read them, they are gone! I must have hundreds or thousands of old emails, yet NONE show on Win10 email. Nothing to see. I used my Live 2012 server settings for win10 mail, did not work, says outdated settings.

Answer:Win 10 Mail, does any of it work properly?

Thunderbird. I went independent of MS after they swapped from Outlook Express to Win Mail then took that away (some of that is STILL there in Win 10!). MS wanted to play 'now you see it, now you don't' with email clients, and I just didn't want to play any more.

My CD ROM does not work properly because of corrupted drivers. I have tried uninstalling etc. How do you load new drivers or even reformat from the recovery disc when the CD ROM drive won't work?

Seems like catch 22. Anyone help?

Answer:Satellite A30 - CD-ROM does not work properly

If it is really a problem with the drivers for your CD-Rom, you can recover it.

Because you need to boot your Notebook with the Recovery CD/DVD.
This has nothing to do with missing drivers in the Windows Operating System.

And if you can not boot with the Recovery Disc, I would say your Disc drive is broken.

I've got a 10/100 wireless router, and a planning on getting a gigabit unmanaged switch connected to one of the router's ports. To the gigabit switch, I will have 2 PC's each with gigabit NIC's.

Will the 2 PC's connected via the switch have full gigabit transfer speed, or does the traffic need to go through the 10/100 router, introducing a bottleneck?
 

Answer:Will this configuration work properly?

They will get full gigabit connectivity, the only time you will traverse the router is when you want to be getting out to the internet.

For some reason, my LAN is not working for gaming. I CAN connect to the internet to play games online, like through Battle.net and Westwood Online (for Warcraft 3 and Renegade), but I cannot seem to play on Local Area Network with any of my games except for Half-Life: Counter-Strike 1.0 (NOT the steam version). I can also access the shared documents folders on my other computers, but the games will just not work unless it's Counter-Strike 1.0.

I have just recently manually uninstalled Windows OneCare Live after a virus removal(in accordance with the instructions from http://www.askdavetaylor.com/how_do_i_remove_windows_onecare.html), except for 2 folders inside called:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows OneCare Live\ClientSD" and
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows OneCare Live\Database"
Inside the Database folder are six files, but I cannot access the Client SD folder. When I try to remove them, I get a message that says I cannot remove them due to write protection or current usage.

I'm pretty sure that Windows Live OneCare is the issue in not being able to play on LAN, since I could play games on LAN up until Windows OneCare Live's installation, but I am not getting any "This program is being blocked" notifications from OneCare or Windows firewall.

OS: Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 2

Answer:Question: How can I get my LAN to work properly?

After I searched around for a while, I came across this website called Major Geeks, and it provided me a tool that automatically removed the unremovable remnants of OneCare. Here is the URL to download the auto-uninstall tool:

Major Geeks OneCare removal utility

Special thanks to these guys that I searched for. Now my LAN games are running just like they were before I had OneCare.

NOTE: Be sure to unplug/disconnect yourself from the internet whilst you run the application, as Windows Firewall is temporarily deactivated, and you are prompted to restart the computer when the removal is finished.

VLC is fine, but why does Windows Media Player have problems? It always closes and says it encountered a problem playing the file. It only seems that .mkv files is the issue.

VLC has buitin codec to play MKV. Wmp doesn't. To play MKV file with WMP, you'd need to install some third party Codecs such as:

Hi,

I'm having problems with the Tempo service.

I am not receiving ANY updates via this application (all settings of this application are correct, ie "full monitoring"). I know this because there are updates available online for my laptop via the toshiba driver site.

When I first installed Tempo, I received updates for about a month, then suddenly no updates came through. My firewall is not blocking this application either.

I have tried re-installing the application, but no change in the situation.

Does anyone know if ALL the updates that are available via the toshiba driver site come through to Tempo? Because, during the month that this service WAS working, I got a bios update, however I have recently seen a bios update online and Tempo still hasn't reported that it is available.

Any ideas on how to get Tempo to work properly?

Thanks.

Answer:Re: How to get Tempo to work properly?

I saw in your other thread that you have installed the SP1 on your Vista notebook.
Possibly there are some compatibility issues between the SP1 and the Tempo?

And yes? as far as I know Tempo reports all available updates!

Hello everyone.

My name is George Sebros and I owe a Toshiba Satellite A300.
The reason why I am posting this new thread is that I need a little help from anyone who knows something about my problem above:
One day, about 2 months ago... I turn on my Satellite A300.
When it logged in, not only none of my icons appeared but also the start menu didn't....
The only thing that appeared in a totally BLACK screen, was my "Documents and Settings" folder which was opened automatically.
There was no way I could find neither the Start menu (I mean the task bar) nor my icons...
So, everytime I closed the Documents and Settings folder that was appeared, the only thing I could see was a black screen....
It was a kind of shock for me and I could not believe in my eyes...

After a few days, I tried the well-known combination "Ctrl+Alt+Del" in order to see what was working and what was not.
Then, I pressed the "FILE" and then "NEW TASK" and finally, I typed the word "explorer" in it.
That was it!! Suddenly, everything turn to normal as like the day before the problem begun. I was happy because with this way, I was able to use my Satellite A300 again!
However, this is an indirect way to make my PC work!
That means that I am still fain to use that indirect way to make the icons and the taskbar appear.
Does it mean that the "explorer.exe" is not working ?

Answer:Explorer.exe does not work properly.

Hi

Seems your Vista is muddled up?
You could try to clean the OS and the registry in order to avoid new OS installation.
Please use the CCLeaner.

I use this tool as well? it free and it cleans the registry and other temporally files.
It helps really!

But if the OS will still not work as it should then you should try a new installation?
Of course this procedure is drastically because the HDD would be formatted but at the other hand you will get a clean and fully functional OS

My friend has a sony vaio desktop pc which he bought like 2 years ago. The problem is the DVDRW.

It reads original Audio/Video CDs, ORIGINAL DVDs, CD-Rs. But it won't read DVD-Rs. I thought the problem could be the laser beam. Since its 2 years old and used really efficiently, laser beam might be losing its strength?

What other problems could it be? We've formatted hdd and installed windows xp again but it didn't help.

Since its under warranty, should he take it to sony? will they change dvdrw just because its not reading DVD-Rs? Should he try to break it down completely somehow before he takes it to sony?

Any suggestions, ideas, opinions are welcome!

Thanx,
 

Answer:DVDRW Don't Work Properly

Did it read DVD-r's before? what DVD-R's have your tried? ( brand) also what DVD burning software is installed on the machine?

taking the burner apart will void the warranty.

I've downloaded an album in MP3 format from Amazon, and have burned it to a CD. I've done this successfully many times before, and I have a CD player that will play MP3 format music.But this time the CD refuses to behave normally. I've tried three times to create a useable one, but each time the player has had problems with it.First, the CD player clicks and stops and starts for maybe a minute or more. Then a track number appear in the display, but no sound is audible. Randomly, one or two tracks will play successfully, but then the next one won't. It all seems completely random and changes every time I try to play the CD.I run Windows 7. I'm using good-quality (TDK) disks, and I've tried burning with Windows Media Player and with CDBurnerXP - they give equally unsatisfactory results.The album plays completely normally on my MP3 player. Any ideas on why the CD version is a problem, please?

Answer:MP3 album won't work properly on a CD

I recently installed a new 60GB SSD to handle gaming better, and I kept my old HDD for storage. To handle transferring my OS to it I used a program called "Migrate OS to SSD". When I did the transfer I only moved my Windows directory, and now when I start up I get an error message saying my user account was not loaded properly. I also cannot get any of my internet browsers to connect to the internet either. The only reason I added this SSD was for gaming. I am to the point where I am thinking it might be easier just to wipe both hard drives and re-install windows onto the SSD. Also, some of the programs that were left on the old HD are not working now, but I don't know if it is because I do not have admin rights or not because my profile won't load. Thanks for any help.

Answer:Trying to get OS migration to work properly

Hi,

Is the SSD too small for a complete clone of the system?

If not, clone the old drive onto the SSD, when that is up & running, wipe the old drive & use it for storage.

Else you need to start again with the system & use extra space & install your programs to a storage drive (Old one or another). OK?

Hi folks
I recently placed an advert in the paper for my small business, and when someone clicks on the advert, it should bring up a box where readers can email me for more information.
However, I have tried this out myself, and when I click on the advert, a box appears on the screen, and on top of the box it says ‘enter your user name and pass word for the following server’. Underneath, in the same box, there is a sub heading saying
Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk. Underneath in the same box, the user name heading appears and my first name automatically is filled in there with a password. (about half a dozen asterisks).
No matter how many times I press the ok button in that box, the box reappears and does not go away. While all this is happening, there appears a larger box in the background which would enable readers to email me there queries for more information etc.
So, at the moment, I am totally confused with why this is happening. More importantly, does that mean I would not be able to accept emails from readers?
By the way, my inbox does except ‘normal’ emails from other users.
Thanks in advance for your response.

Answer:How can I get my emails to work properly?

Difficult to answer without knowing what the "paper" is that you've placed the advert in and the format of the ad. Normally, a link to send an email takes the form...
mailto:[email protected]
...and clicking on it opens a new message window in the user's email program.

Answer:Router won't work properly

Have you tried pressing the reset button on the router? (long press)
I have seen this 'reset button' on several router brands/models like tp-link (tl-wr941n, tl-wr740n old version, tl-wr740n newer version), buffalo draft-N routers, cdrking routers (made in china router brand sold in the Philippines).

if the reset process I described is the same as what you typed in your first post, try to manually change the router ip address.

my wimax modem ip address = 192.168.1.1
so for the tp-link wr-740 router, I use ip address - 192.168.0.1

login to your router and change it. if there's any save button, click it. my router prompts me to reboot the router. after a few seconds, the preferred ip address I have chosen is good for use.
(I have hidden my MAC address)

Hi,

Im having "issues" with playing DVD's and CD's on the internal DVD/CD drive on my Equium M50-192
While playing DVD's the images stutter and the audio is very slightly out of sync with the video. When playing CD's, they play slow.

Have tried various players (Nero, Intervideo etc) and all seem the same.
Have also tried an external drive and this seems to solve the problem for 99% of the time with DVD's (still get the occasional stutter) and CD's play OK.

Has anybody got any ideas?

Thanks.

Answer:ODD on Equium M50 does not work properly

Hi there,

it sounds like your ODD has a hardware problem which needs to be fixed by an toshiba technician which means you must bring your machine to an authorized service partner.

So I suggest you to visit the following link:

Pick your ASP which is the nearest in your region and then let them do the rest.

i am using a pair of tsunmi speakers, i can hear sound when i dial up, but got no sound on anything else anyone got any suggestions please
 

Answer:my sound does not work properly

Hello, and welcome to techspot!

We need to know a bit more about your computer. Please fill in as much info as you know in your "profile".

A couple of questions:

1. How long have you had the computer?
2. Did it EVER have sound?

The problem is likely one of two things.

1. You have the volume on mute in your sound settings
2. You don't have the drivers installed.

Do you know how to check to see if it is problem #1?

Hey, for a new build i recently purchased an evga 7950 GX2.
i have yet to get it to work properly.

My system is:

Asus A8N SLI deluxe mobo
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+
2gigs DDR ram
600watt PS
DVD burner
80 & 160gb harddrives over 150gb free
Evga 7950 GX2

As far as i have been able to determine this should be able to work.
the problem: i can install the drivers and boot up my computer, the computer seems to be completly operational until i try to start up a game. When i try to start a game the computer freezes on a blank screen. the game i have tried that freeze are Half life 2 and other source based games, Everquest 2, and 3dmark03, all seem to freeze as soon as they try to load anything 3d, the menus will load, but it freezes when i try to start the game. for some reason i can get Oblivion to run.

when i turn the Nvidia "multi-gpu configuration" from "multi-gpu mode" to "multi-display" mode i can run all of these programs without a single problem.

i have updated my n-force4 chipset to the 6.86 version and updated the bios on my board to the ASUS 1016 bios version, with these settings nvidia's
website says that my motherboard should be compatible with the 7950 card. i have also tried this list of Drivers: 91.31, 91.33, 91.37, 91.45, 91.47, as well as the evga driver that came with the card. all have the same effect.

Hay!!

Can anyone please tell me why my DVD-Rom can only read audio, video and data CDs but not any kind of DVD-rom. I can hear the lens moving but rather in jerks as if trying to find something and when I double click on the DVD- rom drive in my computer it shows an empty DVD with no files. Further when I check the properties for the DVD it gives an unknown file format. I have a satellite P20-S103 a very old driver (2001). PLEASE HELP. I am desperate!!!

Cheers!!

Answer:Satellite P20 – DVD-rom doesn’t work properly

Hi

Well, it seems like the beginning of the end. Mostly such issues occur if the drive has a hardware malfunction. Maybe it?s a lens calibration problem. Usually only the drive replacement can solve such issues.
But first of all you should check if the drive removing from the device manager will help.
Please remove the drive and reboot the unit. The OS should recognize the drive again.
Check if after this replacement the drive works properly.

I saw in another topic that your unit has now the new main board. Remove the device from device manager and restart the unit. After that the port should be recognized properly if not it must be some hardware problem.

Hi!
I'm about to prepare some OEM computers and have made a simple unattend.xml-file with help from the answering file sample from WAIK, but I can't get it to work properly.

I have copied the file to the root directory of an USB drive and it seemes like the installation program is reading the file (e.g. I don't have to specify an computer name when finalizing the installation) but it's not as automated that I would like it to be. I have to choose wich Windows version to install (basic, HP etc.), the disk partitions listed in the xml-file is not automated (I have to choose wich drive to use for installation), I need to confirm the license agreement, choose date and time options.

What can be wrong? I would like a clean, working autounattend.xml-file that automatically installs and also temporarily activates the administrator account so I can install updates, drivers and such and then seal everything up with sysprep.

Can anyone help me with this?

Any suggestions of what I could do to fix this problem, I don't really want to have to return my pc and be without it for weeks. Many thanks.

Answer:hibernate doesn't work properly

Are you permanently connected to the internet?If so, the PC will never hibernate because there will always be activity via your internet connection which prevents hibernation. Try disconnecting and see what happens.If this is not the case, I'll watch this thread with interest because I have a similar problem with my Dell laptop.

Hi guys, I have just purchased a Lenovo T440s several days ago. For reasons out of the three USB 3.0 ports I have, only the one next to the ethernet port is wokring properly. The port that has a charging sign on it simply won't recongnize any of the USB devices except my mouse...I have tried multiple flash drives and hard drives. They seems to be connected to the laptop becuase the indication lights on them will light up. And nothing else happened besides that. The other port on the left side of the laptop (next to heat sink) can recognize USB devices but it is not stable while tranfering data from my external hard drive to the laptop. The process would stop and resume mutiple times and the hard drive just got disconected for no reason... I think it is a power issue since that port works fine with flash drive. However, my hard drive does need an external power! I have also tried other hard drives...no luck... I have also tried to debug the BIOS but nothing seemed off. I am running on Windows 8.1. Have anyone ever had similar issues? Please help... Thank you,

The operating system is Vista home premium. The Control panel highlights the problem as
"Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)".

The CD/DVD is HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20N ATA Device.

Any ideas?

Answer:CD/DVD does not work properly on Satellite A200-1AI

Hi,

maybe you should repair your registry? I suggest you the following:

- Download a registry cleaning program (just google for "registry cleaning") and perform a full cleanup.
- Remove all burning software and any other media related software like codecs, DVD-player, etc..
- Then go into device manager and remove your DVD. Just completely install the device, so windows should reinstall the next time.
- Before you restart the machine perform a registry clean once again, then restart your machine.

Windows should recognize the drive properly and reinstall it. After this it should work properly again.

Would appreciate some feedback.

Bye

Hello

It will be interesting to know if this happens with all data media that you use.

In my opinion you should at first locate the source of this problem. Check if your DVD-RAM drive works properly using different CD`s, DVD`s and DVD-RAM of course. If yes in this case it is a specific issue based on this game CD.

Hi

>The SD drive doesn't appear on '*My Computer'* until I insert an SD card.
This is nothing unusual. I also don?t have the SD card drive in My Computer until I insert a SD card.

In your case I would recommend checking if you SD card is compatible with the SD card drive. As far as I know not all sizes are supported. Furthermore check if the SD card is not damage.
Last but not leas if it?s possible then format the SD card firstly and then insert it.

PS: You could also reinstall the SD card driver. Remove firstly the SD drive from the device manager and then reinstall the driver.

My new roomate from Slovakia has a MSI Laptop with a Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Card in.

Its connected to a Shared encrypted network, and i set it up the EXACT way as mine like it should.

I then tried using the Atheros Utility, but everytime I put RADIO ON, nothing happened. All the buttons were greyed out to add a network or go into any options at all.

So im puzzled why it wont see or connect to anything as it should.

Hi,

I purchased a Satellite A60-772 in September of last year. Its SD-R6112 DVD-RW drive worked fine up until March 2005 sometime; though, I only used it to burn CD-R's and CD-RW's. Then around March, I used it maybe twice to burn onto DVD-RW's, using the RecordNow! software provided.

There were no problems -then-, but soon afterwards the drive refused to even detect CD-RW's and DVD-RW's. I can now only use CD-R's with it (haven't checked with DVD-R's). Since then, I've uninstalled and reinstalled it several times, and even reinstalled the OS once (i.e. Windows XP Home). I also updated the BIOS about a month ago. Still nothing.

Has -anyone- had a similar problem? And if so, do you have any idea how to resolve this?

Answer:Sat A60-772: SD-R6112 DVD-RW doesn't work properly

In my opinion the first thing that you can do is to check if the problem occurs with medias from different manufacturers. It is well known that some cheaper or unknown medias can not be readable.

Howdy.

I just bought a new PC, and so far I'm very satisfied, except that my network interface card (a D-Link DFE-538TX/R) doesn't work. Every time I install Windows XP Pro (and I've tried at least 4 times), the card installs itself (as it should), but when I go to System and all that, there's a "!" next to Network Adapters. And when I right-click on the card (which is called RealTech something something, for some reason... at first I thought it was because it was the wrong driver, but the guy at the store said it was what it was supposed to be) and click on "Properties", there's an error message (Code 12 or Code 20, I think) saying "Too much of your system's resources are being used" or something like that. Sorry I can't give you the exact message, but I had to unplug my new PC to use this one to write this post.

So I brought my PC back to the place I bought it, and after checking things for almost an hour (and trying three different network cards), the technician finally concluded the problem was with Windows XP. He also said his PC had the same card and it worked fine. I don't know what makes him say that, but he says I have more than twenty ethernet cards installed on my computer; I only see one when I click on Network Adapters. *shrug*

Anyway, after I got back to my house, I tried installing the drivers from the disk that came with the card; first I tried doing it automatically, but it wouldn't... Read more

Hello guys. I'm new here.

I have a very frustating problem so I hope you guys can help out.

Last week I repair my windows XP because my av deleted some system files that infected by virus. But, after repair completed, the sound icon is not displayed in the taskbar and when I check the sound properties at control panel, it says no audio device. I have installed VIA Vinyl AC97 Combo Codec Driver WDM and device manager say the driver is working properly.

I have a Intel Celeron D 335, 2800 MHz (21 x 133). My motherboard is VIARAMA U8588 (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 1 ACR, 1 CNR, 3 DIMM, Audio) and the chipset is VIA VT8751(A) ProSavageDDR P4M266(A) (Thats what i got from everest).

Did I installed wrong driver? What i must do to get the sound back?

Any help would be appreciated!!!

Thanks!!!

I experience the following annoying problems with USB3.0:

When I plug in a USB 3.0 device, one of my other plugged USB 2.0 devices will disconnect/fail. That was with my old laptop (ASUS N71JQ)... I have a new PC today (Brix GB-BXBT-2807) and I was really looking forward to leaving the problems behind. However, this new PC has similar/same USB 3.0 problems; when I connect a USB 3.0 device to the USB 3.0 port, WiFi usually drops out completely. It is as if the system does not have enough power (?) to run a USB 3.0 device and the WiFi card simultaneously?

It is not just one USB 3.0 device I have tried; I have a USB 3.0 external powered 2TB Seagate hard drive, and a USB 3.0 Flash drive (32BG KingMax). Both give the same problems.

Is USB 3.0 simply not fit for purpose???

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:USB3.0 is flawed? Never seems to work properly.

Is there a power profile setting? If so I would try Performance Profile if that is not already the default.

Also in Device Manager see if the USB has any option set to "allow to be shut off to save power" or words to that effect.
