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.)

It's cheap and basically the first type-C charger I've seen in my country, so it could be a good buy.

Hi guys!
I'm currently a Lumia 640 LTE user. I'm very satisfied with this unit's performance and very impressed with windows 10 mobile despite it's occasional hiccups and persisting bugs, especially after coming from windows phone 8.1 with the Cherry Mobile Alpha Luxe. An acquaintance of mine is selling his Xiaomi Mi4 at an affordable price and although I despise the brand because of it's poor customer support (based on my personal experience with the Mipad), I'm thinking of buying it just to try out W10M on a premium hardware. My concern, however is that I am not so sure if the version of the W10M ROM available for the Mi4 is the old one or is it constantly updated and still updatable to current builds. Can anybody please shed some light on this? Thanks!

Answer:What is the latest build available for the Xiaomi mi4 on windows 10 mobile rom?

I have recently replace my 640 LTE with a Mi4 (the cheapest LTE versin, with 2Gb RAM) and goes much better, I Updated it to the last insider version in the fast ring and I'm happy with it.
Just one thing, only LTE versions of Mi4 had windows 10 ROM

Does anyone know if MSFT is working on installers that someone can buy/get and install it on some of the popular android devices???

Answer:Is there a way to install Windows 10 on Android devices like One Plus Two or Xiaomi Mi4?

Not even close! It's a whole world in terms of OS's! What MSFT did is create a somewhat called launcher (ROM) for the Mi4 (Xiaomi) but it's only tested from the inside (Privately)
So you better grab a Windows launcher in the Play store! Or you could search (If you are lucky) a torrent of the ROM and download it (If available) flash your Android phone and we'll... You got it!
But for now! Not even heard a word of it!

My elderly friend has a Playstation 2 game. She loves solitaire and word whomp types of games. I don't find any listed for Playstation 2. Are any of the games made for computers compatable with the Playstation 2 or is there a way to burn one from computer to a Playstation 2 type disk? Dumb question I am sure, but had to ask. She has no money. Thought about getting here a keyboard, monitor and hard drive cheap at used store. She won't be able to go on line, but at least she could play some games once in a while.

Answer:Microsoft is providing select Xiaomi users with a ROM to put Windows 10 on their Android smartphones

And who knows, perhaps this sort of thing could catch on to the point where handsets are sold as barebones devices that allow users to select the OS of their choice during the setup processClick to expand...

If you would have said that a year ago I would have laughed it off but not it seems like that might really be the way of the future.

There hasn't been any real innovation in the smartphone segment for the last few years, interchangeable parts on smartphones may very well be the way of the future, there just doesn't seem to be anyway to improve on what's already here without some drastic improvement like upgradability.

As far as making Windows 10 free to android users seems like a very smart move on Microsoft's part. There are currently more android phones in peoples pockets than any other smartphone. Making their OS free to them is a very easy way to get their OS in everyone's pocket.

I have been recently using windows 8.1 but I am quite upset with this version of windows. because I have tried most of the top rated internet security for the installation but most of them are incompatible with win 8.1. so what is the matter despite of being upgraded and rectified version it is not taking antivirus which is most essential for the windows ? so please suggest what to do or what are some compatible versions of antivirus

Answer:antivirus compatible problem

This is the thing. Apple and Unix/Linux forced Windows to bring Anti-Virus in-house. (That's my opinion anyway. And quite possibly the NSA, since products like Kaspersky have dominated over products like Norton/McAfee.)

Windows provides ?Windows Defender?. Enable that. Update and run a full scan. Now you have a very good anti-virus software installed.

Many people get a ?second opinion?. Malwarebytes is perhaps the leader. Install the app, but do not check the ?Free Trial Pro? option [un-check that], and then just run full scans periodically. Better yet, pony up the $23 or whatever and run that app full-time as well. The two are completely compatible together.

That combo is probably the ?standard? if there is one.

If you have clients (doctor, lawyer, etc.), or work with something that needs extra-super-duper protection that justifies paranoia, purchase 2014 Kaspersky Internet Security ? which I feel is the best there is.

Don't try to install older anti-virus software you have.
(All personal opinion ? mileage may vary)

I have an Hp a600n computer. This has 1G of ram and a 300 watt power supply. Operating system is vista x32. My problem is a a while back my integrated video went up in smoke on the motherboard. I recently purchased an ATI Radeon 3450 pci express video card. Before I installed this card I formatted the HD and started out fresh. The card was then installed and then the proper driver was downloaded and installed from AMD. The problem I am having is that is when booting up (warm or cold) the system freezes up after a minute or so. If I remove the driver in device manager and reboot then, the pc is fine but no good resolution. Does anyone think this may be some type of software sharing conflict? and not a hardware problem. Or could it be that the requirements for the card is 1G of ram and a 300 watt power suppy and one of them is maxed out. Is there a way to test that? Or is something else going on?

I recently had my laptop swiped for viruses and when I got it back I was missing the following drivers:
Base System Device (Appears three times)
Ethernet Controller
SM Bus Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

I tried to install them only to find that I need the CDs for them which I no longer have (probably lost them in the move), so I looked online for people with similar problems and after identifying what computer they were using, merely went to the manufacturer website to download the drivers and their problems were solved however, this is where I hit a dead end. I use a Toshiba Satellite A210 and so I went to Toshiba's site and went to download a video driver and it sent me to Nvidia's site, I downloaded every driver they had (not all at once) and tried them all and I always get the same message "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit." The main problem I have is that while web-based videos and games will work, those installed on my machine will not display, the message that comes up says "Direct3D could not be correctly initialized. Sometimes this will be fixed by rebooting your machine. If it still occurs after a fresh reboot, you may need to reinstall DirectX". I have no clue how to install this missing video controller and after searching all night for a solution I finally gave up so if anyone could help me if would be very grateful. Also if you need a...

I am over in Iraq and my commander's cd drive quit on the Satellite U200 laptop. The drive that was in there was UJDA765 which cannot burn DVD's. The problem with that drive is it quit seeing DVD's and the CD part only worked sometime and then it made noise.

I looked for a compatible DVD burner to replace it with and found UJ-822B. Several sites said it was compatible and I found people that say they were using it. Can anyone tell me if it really is? I already had the drive shipped here. Is there something that I need to do to get the laptop to see it? It does not show up in the hardware section, but it has power and opens and closes correctly. I have moved to the point of considering flashing the bios, I have done that many times but do not see any benefit as the changes in the new BIOS.

If I was wrong, can someone tell me a DVD burner that is compatible?

Answer:Compatible DVD Drive problem on Satellite U200

For Satellite U200 you have use two compatible optical disc drives:

DVD-ROM & CD-R/RW drive UJDA765
DVD Super Multi with Double layer Recording UJ-842

So if you want to order new one, take the second one. You should have super multi drive and you will be able to burn all CD/DVD formats.

Good luck buddy and take care about you.

Hi all! I would really appreciate if anyone could help me with my problem. I have been trawling the net for hours to try to find a solution but as I am pretty much (well, competely) clueless about anything techy, I haven't been able to find a solution!

I have a Dell Dimension 3100 (only has VGA output)
I have a DVD player (SCART only)
I have a set-top virgin media box (RF and SCART)

I have bought a Clearco HD9000 projector (has VGA, S-video, RF and AV input)

I want to send the image and sound wirelessly.

Is there a wireless sender out there that is compatible with all of that? I have had trouble finding any that takes VGA (something about it being too dense?).

I have looked at a VGA to S-video adaptor (only a few quid!) which would allow me to connect it to a wireless transmitter, but does my computer need a TV-out to work with this? I don't even know if it has such a thing!

Alternatively would something like a VGA to TV signal convertor (around 30 quid) work?

I would be huuuugely grateful if anyone could help me out on this, and yes, I am embarassed about being so unbelievably clueless!

Thanks so much

I've upgraded hard drive in my ThinkPad x61 tablet (by installing Windows XP from scratch using USB DVD drive) to my new Momentus 5400.6 (ST9500325AS). And since then I experience following problems.If ThinkPad's Active Protection System is enabled, system goes into Blue Screen of Death from time to time, showing error code 0x000000F4. If I turn Active Protection System off it seems more stable (not much time passed yet) - no BSODs, but it hung up once - no system activity, hdd led is off, just freezed.Am I got unlucky and my drive is malfunctioning? Does anybody successfully run ST9500325AS with ThinkPad x61 or similar? Is it possible to do something?I need to make it running very much.Thanks in advance.Message Edited by kuchadel on 04-13-2009 07:37 AM

Answer:Are ThinkPad x61 and Momentus 5400.6 (ST9500325AS) compatible? - problem.

Hi Igor, welcome to the community!  I haven't seen the exact error you are getting, but I see that the Momentus 5400.6 has it's own "Active Protection" (G Force) i.e. both your ThinkPad and the hard drive have accelerometers to protect them. Do you have both enabled? Please post questions just once in the forums... multiple posts fragment the useful answers and discussions. I deleted the duplicate.

I'm new here and I'm having a problem upgrading from Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit to Windows 8 Pro 64 bit on my Dell N5050. I'm getting a screen that says "What needs your attention". It listed 3 programs to uninstall because they are not compatible with Windows 8. I was able to uninstall 2 of them with no problem, but the 3rd one I can't even find on my computer. The program is Bluetooth Win7 Suite (64) and the screen that it's listed on has an "Uninstall" button that does nothing when I click on it. I've done a complete search of my computer (luckily there's not much on it) and I can't find this program. Any help would be appreciated as I'm not very computer literate. Thank you all in advance.

Answer:Problem finding/removing non-compatible program in upgrade

Bluetooth is a short-range wireless, useful for mice, keyboards, pairing with cellphones, tablets, etc. The program itself may be in C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86). The x86 signifies the Folder where 32-bit programs get installed. Have you checked Device Manager for a listing for the adapter? Have you checked with Support | Dell US for drivers for the Bluetooth adapter? You'll need the Service Tag from a sticker on the case. Frequently the Bluetooth will be part of the Wi-Fi adapter, turn Wi-Fi off and Bluetooth will be off. I have an N5010 that I resurrected and that's the only feature that doesn't work but I can use a Bluetooth USB dongle when I need it.

Hi, I've got 2 HDs total of 260GB as RAID 0 for C drive. (SATA)

Last night, my motherboard went crazy and I realised that it requires a replacement. I didn't get any deadly blue screen or anything but it just restarted while i was running WOW. I tried to restart and my screen doesn't display anything, just beep sounds during POST (5 times in consecutive)... and discovered that its time to replace the board (ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe)

My harddrives are, as aforementioned, RAID 0 configured with onboard Sil3114CT176 raid controller. If I change the mother board with something different, the raid won't be recognised, i heard (unless the new raid controller is the exactly same with my previous one).

Question1. Is there anyway (let alone the screen display problem) to backup the data in C drive? I mean by all possible means...

If it was a single disk then, I would have just take the hard drive out and the problem is solved... but I am scared if I change the motherboard or use different RAID controller, it would destory the array and therefore lose all the data...

Question2. If I purchase a PCI raid controller (Sil3114, not onboard crap) and install it on the new mobo, will it recognise my raid array?

Question3. Will Sil3112 instead of sil3114, recognise my raid array?

I thank you for any help in advance. Cheers!

OK, basically whenever I play a game (lately Dawn of War: Winter Assault if curious) in at most 20 minutes, my computer will either
a.) exit game and return to windows citing some error with game or
b.) restart citing error by 'unknown device driver' which is likely my video card.

As you can imagine, both are *highly* annoying. Same problem occured on previous system, which had:

Windows XP Pro
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128
Soyo Dragon II plus MB
Pentium IV 2.6GHz w/HT
1024MB PC3200 DDR RAM
Audigy II Platinum

and the new system:

Windows XP Pro
BFG 6800 GT
Asus P4C800-E Deluxe MB
Pentium IV 2.6GHz w/HT <-same as previous
1024MB PC3200 DDR RAM <-same as previous
Audigy II Platinum <-same as previous

ATI said it was obviously my fault, and BFG says it might be the card, but since it occured on two systems I can't see why. Could it be the memory/pentium/soundcard/harddrive?

Why would it randomly crash all the time? I can provide any more information as required to assist the diagnosis.

I'm a senior in Aerospace Engineering and damn do I need to relax after a long day of crappy homework, so any help is greatly appreciated.

Dear community,
I have a very strange problem concerning two Dell Studio 1558 laptops. I am sorry for the long post but there is no other way to describe what happened.
The first laptop (i5 520M - 4GB ram - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 - 500 GB disk - 720p screen) worked fine for about 6 years until one morning I turned it on, the keyboard and the fan were working but the screen was black, no POST, no life signs. I tested the screen with the self-test and it was working as expected.
After some research on the net, calling a local authorized Dell repair shop, and testing (swapping ram etc.) I concluded that the integrated video card (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570) was burned out.
As the card is integrated and can't be replaced, I decided to buy a replacement motherboard. Instead I bought another (working) Dell Studio 1558 locally as it was actually more expensive to buy the motherboard on eBay and have it shipped from abroad. The Dell I bought was i3 350M - 4GB ram - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 - 500 GB disk - 1080p screen.The motherboard is supposed to be the same in both laptops, judging by the sticker tag next to the ram slots - CN-0CGY2Y.
As the board is the same I though that I can just swap the i3 for my old i5. The BIOS of both laptops was the latest version A12. I should also mention that some months ago I had upgraded the 4 GB (2x2GB) of ram on my i5 laptop to compatible 2x4 GB and it worked OK.
So me and my brother swapped the processors on the newly bought i3 lapto... Read more

I'm having a problem with my laptop, running Windows XP service pack 2. It's an alienware (i forget what model, it's a couple years old) and up until recently, no problems whatsoever.
About a week ago however, i was trying to play Worms World Party, and couldn't manage to move using the keyboard. After going through the options, trying to find the problem in keybindings, i finally gave up and started trying to quit (alt-f4). this didn't work. I started to push every button on my keyboard, trying to determine if it was a hardware problem. to my surprise, pushing the alt button and an arrow key allowed me to move. release alt, no movement. push alt, movement!
Hoping it's a freak problem, i restarted the computer. Problem persists. Loading up Age of Empires 2, keyboard works fine. As with Dawn of War, Fable, and Diablo 2. So far, the only two games i've been able to duplicate the problem are with Worms World Party, and the N-game (flash game where you play as a ninja).
I've played both WWP and the N-game frequently, they only recently started acting up. No new software installed, no new hardware, no internet connection and virus scan is clean.
My coworker (we're deployed) is having a similar problem with his laptop, an Asus something-or-other running Vista.

I have an issue where my monitor when a lot goes on in a game turns into a complete blur. For example, in 1.6 if there's several smokes, it'll happen. Or in 2142, it'll happen whenever 'cause that game has a lot going on at once. It immediately fixes itself if I ALT+TAB for 1.6, but since 2142 is pretty demanding, my game actually just ends up crashing. Anyway, the crashing of 2142 isn't an issue since it wouldn't happen if this problem didn't work.

I tried to screenshot what showed up on my screen, but the screenshot shows what's supposed to be visible, so I'm assuming this is a monitor problem?

Here's some pictures:

It's really annoying especially since I play 1.6 at a competitive-level and smokes being thrown at once is not a "once-in-a-blue-moon" deal. 2142 is absolutely unplayable because it immediately crashes after the screen blurs like that.

Question: dvd games problem

Hope someone out there can help me!. i have recently installed a Sapphire radeon x800 platinum edition graphics card, playing games on CD are fine but games that are on DVD wont play. On pressing play the title screen comes up then nothing else happens for about two minutes when i get an error message saying "please insert the correct cd rom and restart application".

I recently installed Leisure suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, and this is a game that doesn't require a disk to be inserted to play it. Well after I installed it, I put away the installation CD's and clicked Play for the game. An error popped up saying

No Disc Inserted

Then I tried playing by putting each one of the 4 installation CD's and then pressing play. For each time I did it the same error popped up :

Wrong Disc Inserted

This happened a while back when I tried to play Diablo II and I kept inserting the Playdisc in and it would say something like: Play Disc Not Inserted

I really need help, I really want to play this game.
OP: Windows ME
Ram: 374MB
Im not sure what else, all I know is I matched all the requirements

Question: Problem with games

i didn't know whether i should post this here or in the hardware forum, but this is my first post so forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum
I noticed that some games are not running as they should on my computer. The games have great quality but doesn't work properly even on the lowest quality available. It is very strange since my graphics card is nVidia GeForce 9500GT which should run them smoothly even on the highest quality. Some of the games include: iFluid, Crysis and Prototype. The weird thing is that Bioshock works perfectly on the highest quality which is very strange considering it is high quality... Please help me find a solution or at least know if it is a hardware problem or a windows problem
the OS is windows XP

I resently upgraded my computer hardware. My specs are:

Processor: Pentium D 2.8GHz
RAM: 1Gb DDR2 (667)
Vid Card: 256 mb GeForce 7600 GT (PCI Express x16)

Needless to say that I should be able to run just about every game out on the market (I think). However, only one game that I have will actually run (which is Command & Conquer 3).
I will start at the top.
Oh...and by the way. EVERYTHING is updated (graphics card, motherboard,...everything)
Battlefield 2:
I installed it (with no problems) and when I attempt to play it, the screen will go black like its about to start; and then crash back to the desktop with no error (as if I was never trying to play it). I uninstalled it and tried again.....same thing. I updated the game....same thing.
Star Wars Empire at War:
Everything on this game looks pretty good, except that there are textures missing. Actually the only texture missing is smoke. When something explodes in the game, only white squares appear where smoke is supposed to be. I did everything I did with Battlefield 2, and still no luck.

Star Wars: Jedi Academy:
Starts up fine and everything, but when I try to start singleplayer it crashes to the desktop and in the console it says something like: UNSUPPORTED MARKER 0x5d.
No clue what that means.

Command & Conquer 3:
Okay, like I said above this game works wonderfully. There is no problems at all. Every once in a while though, the game will crash to the desktop and windows will say something like out ... Read more

Question: All games problem

This has been driving me nuts ever since i got my radeon 9600. On default ati driver settings for some reason all games i play(steam games, GW, WOW) freeze the computer. My friend played around with the settings and it was fixed but after updating the new ati drivers, I have tried toggling every setting and it still doesnt work.

I click on a game like Guild Wars. It loads up checks for updates and when it gets to account login info the screen goes black and the comp goes idle.

Any help from ATI experts? I didnt have this problem from my old Geforce4.

Pent4 2.7ghz
Radeon 9600 256 mb
80 gb hd
512 DDR

Answer:All games problem

When you updated the ATI drivers did you uninstall the old ones first?

Sometimes setting AGP from 8X to 4X increases stability without hurting performance. You would do this here:Right click at desktop-settings-advanced-Smartgart. Reboot.

I am currently in to 3 games:

-Counter Strike Source
-GTA 3
-Tony Hawks Underground 2

I have the same problem with all 3.

After a while one of 2 things happen, either:
-The computer stalls with the current sound looped over and over and i have to restart.
-The computer crashes and restarts

With GTA and THUG it can be 5 mins or 30 mins before it does it. With CSS its usually 1-2 hours.

I've got the latest drivers for my gfx card and i know its not an over heating problem.

Here is my setup:

-Windows XP Pro
-1.8ghz AMD Athlon
-256mb geforce 6200
-1.5gb RAM

So I got a new PC about a month ago from someone, I previously had a GTX 260 graphics card in it, but my games were sluggish, and I couldn't play them with good quality, so I went out and bought a GTX 960 oc. I have had it about 10 days now and I have still been having problems with my games, I'm not sure if its my PC or my network honestly. I get great FPS most of the time, no lag, then all of a sudden all my games will lag, I get lag spikes that go from 40-500, sometimes even to 800-900. the FPS doesn't change though usually. But one game I have in specific (Counter Strike Source) I have NEVER had an issue with, even if it is the network being slow, the game has ALWAYS performed flawlessly, I have 1100+ hours on it. So its kind of my go to game if I think somethings up and I'm lagging, the last few days, I have been lagging REALLY bad to the point my games are unplayable, so I decided to try CS;S see if it was even messing up, AND IT IS? I get the same issue with that game now. It's driving me absolutely crazy, I've called my internet provider had my bandwidth and download speed increased. I bought the new graphics card, my next step is buying a new modem and coax cables, a new cpu and new network driver. Which I don't want to do, I feel like I'm wasting my money buying those things, when I know SOMEONE must have the answer. I'd gladly let one of your professionals remote control my PC to mess with it, see if I maybe might have m... Read more

Was wondering if anybody knew a way to get Bespelled to work found on MSN Games. I have a client who loves this lil game, just not enough to buy the downloadable version. I have disabled all firewalls, turned down privacy/security settings, and followed all instructions in the help section. Nothing seems to work, game does not get past "Downloading and installing." Using broadband connection with Windows XP and everything updated. Anybody with expeirence on this or any assistance id appreciate it. Will give you credit when informing the client.

Answer:Problem with games on

Didn't get it to load either on a quick try. I could just be impatient. Make sure your Java is up to date. Otherwise, that game looks like it is the bastard twin of Bookworm which worked without a hitch. Give it a shot, I bet it's the same thing.

edit: I don't know if you have tried at other times during the day, but it IS a weekend. MSN servers might be gettin' hammered, don't know. Just a thought.
