Preferred Solution: Updateing Non Responsive

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.)

Answer: Updateing Non Responsive

I would check your Internet connection...did you remember to re-install ALL your drivers ?

Hey everyone.

So my PC began acting up and I have a feeling it started when I was looking for video editing software and came across a video editor called "softonicdownloader_for_Windows-live-movie-maker.exe" I'm sure it's a virus or something because problems with my PC began shortly after getting this.
I deleted and uninstalled what I could, went into safe mode and ran the latest updated version of malware bytes. It got 5 infected files that were deleted.

After doing so, I had little success. Here are still the issues with the PC

Sometimes they will, but it is only after several manual shut downs. If it does respond (such as clicking on internet explorer), upon closing out the program it will not respond again without a manual shut down.

Question: Updateing BIOS

Okay so I recently bought Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for the PC via Steam, when I try to launch it, my computer either automatically restarts it gets the BSOD. I have looked it up on the activision forums and other people who have the same problem say it is because you have a AMD CPU/GPU. Other people who also have AMD CPU/GPU's have said that it was because of their BIOS being out of date and requiring a update, I looked at a YouTube video and it seems the guy also has the same problem and has the same MOBO as I do, I used a program called Bios Agent Plus. It seemed that I had multiple updates for several things when it conducted the scan, one of them included the BIOS. When I clicked the download drivers button it wants me to give them $20 dollars to download the drivers, why would I pay $20 when I can call my Motherboard's manufacture company and get them to help me over the phone or ask someone on these forums to help me.So my initial question is, where can I find the drivers to download for my MOBO? Will this even help solve my problem? Will calling the company solve my problem too?Thank you to anyone who responds! It is greatly appreciated!

Answer:Updateing BIOS

Just go to the website of your mobo manufacturer, look up the model number, download the bios and install it. DO NOT use a third party app or pay for it.

Answer:updateing my computer

I don't think you'd get crisper quality from a better graphics card, but you would get better 3D performance.I'd strongly suggest more RAM, at least another 512MB and preferably 2GB total.That sound card isn't great - if all you need is 5.1 support then it's fine, but it's not good quality.It's possible to use a TV monitor as your PC screen but the picture won't be great as it will be low resolution for the size.  However, I believe what you want to do is achievable.

You get the drivers from the pc manufacturers website. Period! If it is a custom built computer then from the hardware manufacturers website.
Download them on another pc and burn them to a cd or copy them to a usb stick.

Hey every one,

Since I'm a gamer I figured its time to update my video card. I currently have a ATI Radeon 9550 256 meg AGP.
I'm dead set on getting this card: SAPPHIRE 100175L Radeon X1650PRO 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card.
Click here for the more information on the card & specs.

Got any suggestions for a better card then this? What do you think of this card? The reason I'm dead set on getting this card, is because its in my price range, and I really like the fact that it has 512 megs of ram.

Here's my guide lines for choosing a video card as of right now.

* Cost between $100-$130 dollars.
* Has at least 256 megs of ram. Would perfer 512 megs of ram.
* The best bang for your buck.
* AGP 4x/8x

I do not have a preference be it ATI or Nividia, I'm choosing ATI because that is the brand I have in now. And no I can't go with a PCI-E card, because my mother board doesn't support it. Also do you think this will speed up my frames per second with in my games?

Thank you for your time,

Bigk

I am trying to update a fresh reinstall on an HP laptop. I used the HP Recovery partition with no problem after that completed I started a manual update. There was 140 listed so I started the download and install. When the installation finished it needed to restart. What happened next was it started the install configure procedure at some point it stopped installing and started doing a rollback of updates due to update failure. When or if this finishes how do I get these needed updates. It has been two hours doing the rollback and I do not want a repeat.

Newbie here with a problem that I hope you may be able to solve!

I want to update my .freeserve.co.uk website, but I am now unable to.

Freeserve changed hands and became Wanadoo that then became Orange.

I`ve tried to update my site and it won`t work. I`ve tried all the different versions of FTP`s, and they all give me the same results Being kicked off of server with a timeout.
This is happening to most if not all of freeserve customers. I`ve looked at alot of sites with people having the same problems and not getting any answers.

All my settings are ok including passwords etc.

Do any of you know a way round this?

PS. I did manage to update my main `index` page, but it replaced it with a blank! So anyone going to my site just gets a white blank page and no links!

well my concern is recently purchased  Lenovo G580 (2689) my BIOS version is  62CN41WW, 10-09-12 I want to flash the BIOS kindly somebody help me to geta detailed procedure for flashing the BIOS  Any help would be highly appriciated  And if so is it possible to Remove the exiting the Pheonix BIOS and Flash it and Install Insyde BIOS??....kindly help me

Answer:[URGENT] Need Help Updateing BIOS

hi Abinash,
 
You can follow this article on how to safely flash the BIOS.
 
As for modifying the BIOS, you can only update the BIOS that came with the PC. If you flash it with a different type (i.e. Phoenix BIOS to Insyde BIOS, you might end-up corrupting the CMOS settings rendering the computer unsuable.
 
It maybe possible though to modify BIOS files using different tools as discussed in this thread.
 
 
Hope this helps.

Myself, and I see that many people, have troubles or impossibility to update Avir. Is it anything to do at that respect? Is Avir better than AVG? Many thanks.

Answer:Avir Atnivir Updateing Difficulties

Are you talking about Avira AntiVir and the free version?http://www.free-av.com/Sometimes their servers get bogged down and slow, but if you try a different time of day that usually takes care of it. I just right click the systray icon to manually update the virus definitions. Something new has started though. After the update a balloon comes up about needing updates, but when you click to do it, it tells you it's already updated. (I'm not real thrilled about that.) But apparently it's telling you there is a program update, which is different than the virus definition updates. To get the program update, you have to open Avira and use the update function in Toolbar (Updates) at the top.

I installed CS 3 without issue and have been using it quite happily. I have noticed a recurring issue whenever Adobe offers an Acrobat update. After downloading and installing the update and rebooting the PC, there are 2 PDF Printers in the Printer list; one called Adobe PDF and a second called Adobe PDF (Copy 1). If I try to create a PDF using either one, the PC fails to print, the document just sits in the printer queue and the only way I can create the PDF is to uninstall and re-install the entire application which can take anywhere from 45-60 minutes! Hopefully someone out there has a solution for me. I am happy to take the updates, but not if it's going to create this issue every time. Thanks for reading this.

Before I updated to Windows 8.1 the other month everything was fine on my new laptop then I went to scan something from my HP Photosmart B109n and it didn't work because the driver was now missing and the HP app that replace the HP printer manager is useless.

On the advice of the HP site I tried to download the new driver but it wouldn't go, it said I had to remove the exsisting installation but when I try it just restarts the computer but is still there afterwards. It turns out that the uninstall has gone missing from the current and the install is missing from the install program I have downloaded.

As a last resort I used the sytem restore but not only has the printer issues not changed but now some of the pre-loaded apps won't work and are asking for the Developers Licence to be renewed.

I am at a lost as to what to do next - please help!

Answer:Printer Problems since updateing to WIndows 8.1

Your notebook isn’t known to me but in case of Win 8.1 update you should check this Toshiba update to Win 8.1 page: http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/gen...ws8_1-message/

There you can check if the Win 8.1 is supported on your notebook and how to perform the step-by-step update to Windows 8.1
Some drivers must be uninstalled and updated after the Win 8.1 update installation!

Regarding your printer issue:
Every printer manufacturer provides own drivers for the Windows system.
It’s not known to me if HP released compatible Win 8.1 drivers for the own Photosmart B109n printer but to be honest this issue isn’t related to the Toshiba notebook. If you have problems using HP printer in connection with Win 8.1, you should visit the printer manufacturer support page to get some workarounds and troubleshooting tips.

Answer:Updateing On Vista Home Premium!?

Hi Matt

I haven't seen a workaround just yet ---that's a fairly recent update (it's supposed to close Security issues with some of the Vista Sidebar Gadgets [mainly the RSS feed gadget and Weather gadget). I wouldn't be surprised if you simply gave it a day or two, let Microsoft figure out a better version of the patch, and tried again (they often update the versions of the patches fairly quickly if glitches are found).

Another approach that sometimes works is to download the patch manually, and try installing it yourself. If you have the 32-bit version of Vista, here's the download page for that update --- http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Best of luck
. . . Gary

P.S. ... make sure to be logged in with administrative rights when you install the update.

I recently updated the Windows XP Nvidia drivers for MSI P7N SLI Platinum motherboard. The Nvidia driver download updated video, usb, network, and ide, etc.

When I rebooted I no longer had video, keyboard, network, etc.

I have a upek usb fingerprint reader which allows me to log on to Windows when I reboot using vga mode. However I can only get into windows, I can't control the mouse or keyboard. I suspect because Windows is trying to detect new hardware and it's waiting for a response. Problem is I don't have controls to tell it skip so it can detect my updates for my mouse, keyboard, video, etc.

I've tried a usb & ps2 mouse and keyboard and have the same problem.

Has anybody had this same problem?

Any help would be appreciated as I am about to go buy an external drive so get the data off before I restore my hard drive from backup.

Nothing has changed- except for a patch from microsoft a few days ago that was a "GDI update". Anyone else seeing IIS 6.0 flakyness in the last 2 days?

I thought it might be a DOS or something - but wouldn't a syn attack shut down all my interfaces? Or just the interface in question? What kind of logs would I look for to see some kind of attack? I have Scan Alert which scans my server and reports 0 vulnerabilities. So - at least I have taken care of some of the obvious attacks.

anyone have thoughts for debugging or unravelling this issue?



Thanks

Question: XP Non Responsive

Ok my brothers PC is having some issues. It will load into XP and all the desktop icons will pop up but you just cant click on anything. I am not sure if it is supported by the forum but I used the latest Hiren's Boot CD 9.9 to boot into mini xp ran spybot search and destroy and kapersky - came back with nothing. Also tried other programs but no others seem to work. Anyone know anything about this and the PC problem? Thanks

Answer:XP Non Responsive

Try booting into Safe Mode. If that works, you can try running MalwareBytes and SpyBot Search & Destroy from there.

If it doesn't, try booting from the XP CD and performing a Repair.

Answer:XP NON RESPONSIVE

First, turn off the caps lock key, unless it is broken too. That is considered rude.To get any meaningful help you need to give some information about the system, how old it is, when the problem started, other problems with it, what happened unusual right before it.So info on the computer including the make and model number and the power supply, including maker and wattage (it's on the side of the power supply inside the case).See below. We'll be waiting for your responses.

Question: IE Not Responsive

I hope I am posting in the right place. My Windows 7 pc has been acting up for quite a while. I am not sure if it's an ISP issue or just my pc. When I am running IE or Firefox or Chrome, my websites become non-responsive. Or I will click on a link and nothing happens. It is very "jumpy" meaning pages seem to lock and then switch to new pages after some time has passed. I get the message box pop-up saying that IE is uisng so much RAM and it is usually over 250 MB. I am not sure if it's a hardware issue or internet issue. I did a speedtest and came back over 4 mbps. My issues seem to get worse by the evening. I don't have many issues when using software...just internet websites.

Question: Non-responsive HDD

(I'm sending this from wife's laptop so TSG Sysinfo not much use!)
System: 'Advent' tower PC, Intel Core i7 3440 3.4Ghz Quad Core CPU; 12Gb RAM (DDR3); 2Tb HDD (Seagate)(SATA), using Windows 7.

Sequence of events:
1 Attempted to reboot PC following a minor update but PSU did not power up - it wasn't a particularly quite unit so silence pointed to a PSU fault. On removing the cover, the CPU cooling fan was not operating either, confirming no power.

2 The OEM PSU (CWT GPA450P) was not easily replaceable. Having had to replace PSUs in earlier PCs, I opted for a Corsair CX500M. At this point, I committed the cardinal sin of not practising what I used to preach before I retired - having replaced PSUs before, I did not think I needed to RTFM! Having removed the faulty PSU, I unpacked the replacement and fitted the black box in position before noticing that there were some significant differences between the OEM PSU's 'open' cable loom and the Corsair's sleeved loom. One of these difference was that instead of the 'old fashion' direct cable links to the SATA devices, there was a variety of alternative modular connectors. Had I read the Manual, of course, I would have seen that these plug into the PSU via black sockets on the face of the black CPU box but at this point, they were now hidden in the dark depths between the PSU and the back end of the DVD drive housing. Instead, I looked around for a connector that fitted a 4-pin ... Read more

Answer:Non-responsive HDD

Hello, unfortunately there is a very good chance that the HDD was damaged by the psu incident. The easy way to determine that would be to remove the hdd and then hold it while the pc is turned on. You should be able to hear and feel the platters spinning. After that, just to make sure, you can use a sata to usb adapter and plug it in to a different computer and see if it detects it.

Question: XP non responsive

Hi

Earlier today I installed Outpost Free Internet Security, it crashed my network connection so I uninstalled it, then had to perform system restore. Then I opened MS Outlook and PC turned itself off immediately and restarted. Message came up that Windows had recovered from a serious error.
Came on tonight no programs would open, i have put Xp disk in to try and fix and it seems okay(ish).
Other anomaly is that i keep getting message " this computer has undergone significant hardware changes since Xp installed and XP needs reactivation within 3 days. I have had to do this on average once a month including today.
I rang Microsoft to activate over the phone and spoke to a real, very helpful person who also found it strange that it keeps asking to reactivate.

Anyway I have attached the logs from event log, dont know where else to look for errors. Please if you can help i would appreciate it as I am pulling my hair out.

What is Okay(ish) really mean? does the computer work properly, and do all of your programs work? You do not have to include all of the logs. Just instances with a red X the yellow warnings don't mean that much, and the logs are too long to read through.
You can do some maintenance. Go to Start/Run and type chkdksk C: /R and press enter. Then press a Y for Yes and then restart the computer. Check Disk will run at next bootup to fix any file errors. You can also go to Start/Run and type SFC /scannow and press enter. Put the XP CD in and it will replace any missing files from the CD. If you don't have a current Anti-Virus Software, download the free Microsoft Security Essentials (do not have more then one AV software program on your computer at a time) and do a full scan. Also go to Start/Run and type dfrg.msc and press enter, highlight the C: drive and press Defrag Now.

Now don't get me wrong here. I like Emsisoft and how it operates. But lately I've been playing my usual games from Steam and from some of my online games like Mortal Online and Elsword, when Emsisoft suddenly steps in saying they're giving off suspicious behaviour.
This has gotten my interest piqued as to why Emsisoft would react to my games like this, especially my Steam games. I recently got Planetside 2 and during play Emsisoft came up with 2-3 reactions.
Is this to be expected of Emsisoft? or would this be a cause for concern?

Answer:Emsisoft being a tad too responsive?

Hi IllusionEclipse,If these games are official Steam games then I'd tend to say that these are false-positives. Any change you can upload the flagged file(s) to http://www.virustotal.com and post a link to the scan results here? I can then have a closer look at this.

OK where do I start

Yesterday (sept [email protected] around 8pm) evening I was prompted to update Mozilla, to the newer 3.5.3. I did just that, after the update it required a restart, did that, I clicked on Mozilla icon to continue my browsing, Mozilla would not load. So now I go and click on the Norton icon to run a scan and see if everything is ok. Norton will not respond either, just the hour glass shows up and then disappears. I go and click on IE and see if that will run for me, it does, and it is slow real slow, I have not used IE for at least 2 years, I figured it was the version I am running.

I decide to restore the laptop back 2 days to get my old browsers versions back, no dice, that was all for last night.

Today I restore the laptop back to AUG 18 and it told me nothing had changed, I was left scratching my head, I installed at least 15 updates the past 3 days, so something should have changed. I tried Norton again, no dice it wont even allow me to get support. I decided after chatting with a fellow fisherman to un install mozilla, and download and run Malwarebytes Anti- Malware. It pulls 268 infected files out, 3 of which are trojan files I restart the laptop and rerun this again and get 42 more files.

I try Norton again, nothing, I re install Mozilla nothing, I try Opera, nothing. Next I download and install Super Anti Spyware save it on my desktop, and restart the laptop in safe mode and run a full scan with SAS it gets 49 more files one of which is a Trojan.media-cod... Read more

That brought up several major areas or topics with the option to select one by cuing on a "button" for that one.
However, that accomplishes nothing, regardless of whether I click with the left or right mouse button. There are no url's, (?) to copy or select, nor could I find anything else to select or cue to open the sub category.
Not sure what is going on! Why set things up so one can select a topic if selecting does nothing.

I recently was given some extra RAM by a friend. I wasn't sure if it was the correct size for my PC, so I removed the RAM to check. It indeed was the wrong size, so I replaced the RAM and tossed the extra RAM given to me. I'm sure that the RAM stick was placed back into the computer the right way and is fastened down tightly. When I reconnected everything, the computer turned on fine. But it didn't seem to be recognizing the monitor. Nothing was coming up on the screen and instead of the power light being green, it was orange. So, I checked all my connections and tried again. It still wouldn't do anything. So, I checked all the internal connections as well. I hooked a different monitor up and got the same result.At the moment, my situation is the same. Both power lights on the tower and the monitor are orange instead of green. The computer won't respond to any key commands, nor will it even try to initiate opening Windows XP.Anyone have any ideas on what is wrong? Could I have damaged the RAM when removing it?

This normally takes a couple of days for it to start occurring but after that when I lock the system when I log back in explorer.exe is non responsive. Once it becomes unresponsive once though every time I lock the system and come back it is unresponsive again.

None of the apps running at the same time seem to be in common. I think the only app I have not eliminated yet was Chrome.

I ran memtest overnight and it didnt have any errors. I also ran MBR Check Super Anti Spyware and TDSSKiller and they came up clean.

I disabled all non ms apps using shellexec and action center is clear. I also verified and made sure all drivers are current.

The event viewer doesn't show anything of value. Just that it become unresponsive.

I left it on untill the batter ran out to see if that worked and when I turned it back on it was still the same. I also tried putting a music CD in but that didnt affect it at all.

Thanks in advance

My computer will not power on unless i push the power button in the right spot very hard. I used to be able to push it rather gentle with my finger but not I have to use a pen or other sharp object to press and hold. Im not sure if pushing harder helps or I just need to push in the right spot but i dont feel that i should have to use a piinted object just to get it on.

Hello guys.

My first post on here.

I have a real problem with my laptop. It started playing up a few weeks ago, and would freeze after clicking to open a picture.. The egg timer would come up but it wouldnt open the picture.. After tapping the touchpad a few times, the message would appear "not responding" I then would have to clixk the red x and it would then bring up another box saying do you wish to end this not responding program..I click end now and it would then shut down internet explorer.. Doing this and starting again seemed to work, but it started to get more frequent.

Ive now got problems trying to sell things on ebay. The program freezes on the add picture page on every attempt.

Ive used my symntec antivirus and that says things are all ok.. Ive bought this registry cure thingy and that hasnt helped either.. Its now doing my head in.. Any ideas?

Ive tried scandisk, defrag.. but still to no avail, and the computer is defo slower than it used to be..

Im not the most intelligent pc lad.. so be gentle...

PLEASE HELP>>

Hi, I cleared a trojan out of my system about 3 weeks back and for some reason I can't use the taskbar whenever I restart. I've downloaded TaskbarPlusRepair tool program and the only way I can actually use the taskbar is by using this program each time I restart, which is beginning to get quite tedious... Each time I use it, the program restarts the Windows Shell thing, does anyone know how to just have this start up along with everything else?
Thanks

Report some NT scanner as non responsive..Anybody got a clue???

Welcome to TSG....

This NT Scanner you have installed what is the make and model?

Check in device manager for interrupt conflicts between these two or other devices?

I have a computer running XP SP2 + all updates to date, for a few months now when you go to press the start button the system can take upto 30-60 seconds to respond, once it does your right for another few minutes then stop's responding for another 30-60 seconds and keeps repeating this cycle. I have checked all running processors and there doesn't seem to be anything there that should be.

My initial thinking is that it's trying to check something which holds the system up regular???? Anyone else have this or seen this problem???

Thanks in advance!!

Okay, I've Googled this and tried a couple of websites looking for an answer, but so far no luck. At times, for no appartent cause, everything in my taskbar will suddenly become completely non-responsive. I can click away all I want on "Start", on quick launch items, on minimized programs, on icons in the system tray ... nothing, nada, zilch. When I go into the control panel and click on "Taskbar & Start Menu", the same ... no response. It just sits there in sullen indifference (that last bit is peotic licence). The only cure is a reboot.
Can anyone shed some light?
Thanks!!

Hi! I have been having an issue with my touchscreen... it doesn't respond at all. My laptop is the HP Pavillion Notebook 15 in touchsmart (N5P48UA#ABA). It is running on (freshly updated) Windows 10, and is only 5 months old. The Issue: Several days ago my touch screen stopped responding - at first it was intermittent on-and-off. As of recent it has not been functioning period. Everything else works fine on the laptop, and there are no damages or cracks in the screen. Steps I have taken to resolved the issue (all have failed):I cleaned off the screen with a screen-wipe I restarted my laptopI restored the laptop to factory settingsI received chat support and then remote support from HP (didn't do anything)I spent over an hour on the phone with HP support (wasted time)And of course, I have done plenty of research on the internet.Conclusions that may aid a solution. After spending a ton of time trying to fix this, I know what the problem is not. In Device Manager there are only two drivers listed under Human Interface Devices (HID- compliant wireless radio controls & HP Wireless Button Drive). Its almost like the touch screen driver... doesn't even exist.As a side note, while the touchscreen was working, There were several more drivers listed under the HID section... its almost like they dissapeared.On the HP site, there are drivers that you can download, but the HID drivers that I need are not listedThe touch HID drivers are not ...

My computer is Non-Responive more then it is working.  If my memory is correct, I went into the Bios et. al. and set all to maximum performance years ago, as I am a firm believer of keeping the computer COOL!.  I am **bleep** retentive in using cans of compressed CO2 to blow out the computer.  In reading I find that if the Cooling fan is part of the problem that I should get a warning that the fan has failed to perform to spec's.  But my interpretations of this gives me the impression that this is tied to the Intel processor, and not looking at the AMD Radeon GPU 6770M.  As a side note I have also been uninstalling programs at the same time. At first I thought I had a failing CPU, and or a clogged Heat Sink.  In looking into the replacement of a CPU Fan, which I mentioned earlier I should have gotten a warning from the Bios that the fan was failing, I found it was the same cost to buy a new fan as it was to buy a Heat Sink with a new fan.  Once I realized what the Heat Sink looked like, I got to thinking the GPU may be the actual problem of the computer becoming unresponsive, which is why I started wondering if I should replace both the Heat Sink and the AMD GPU. Does anyone have any suggestions, advice other then to throw the computer away.  I would rather to spend some monies and at the same time upgrade the computer to higher spec's CPU and GPU and get another year or two out of the computer as this computer ...

I bought a MS Wireless Optical Mouse some time ago. The installation was not a problem, however I have a very strange problem in that for no apparent reason sometimes the mouse will have no or very delayed responsiveness to clicks and scrolls.

This is very annoying and when I use the spirit of the irritation built up to press the button harder this will most often on 3rd or 4th occasion get the mouse in action. After a while it the non responsiveness stops (10 minutes to one hour) and the mouse will work fine again. It is not normally a problem on start up.

I have changed batteries, reset the mouse "receiver", installed more RAM (now have 512 MB) and nothing has helped.

Can anyone out there please help me as this is very frustrating.

Finally, if I use the keyboard (when possible) there is no delay, only when using the mouse (so if I cannot scroll with the mouse there is no problem using the arrows up and done for example)...

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help! Will be much appreciated.

Hi Tech Guys!!

This probably seems like a trivial problem to you.

when I try to run certain apps from my desktop, the desktop just crashes

I have tried reinstalling Windows twice now and have come across the same thing on each fresh Install!! THE PROBLEM IS FOLLOWING ME

When I start in safe mode the problem does not occur at all

It is not just the desktop though, if I go to my docs and to the desktop folder, they dont load from there either, just crashes "my computer"

Its the same for any app I try to run with a few acceptions, i.e itunes, Firefox, MSN

Cheers for your help guys!!!!

Last night I was showing a young child my FSX, and all the things that you could do with it. Somehow he started playing with the keyboard and the next time I opened up FSX the joystick movements were not responding in the aircraft. I checked it out by using FS 2004, and no problem, it worked fine, so the connection wasn't the problem. I think it must have been due to the kid playing on the keyboard which made the jostick unresponsive when using FSX. Can you help please.

Answer:FSX - non responsive joystick

this happens to me alot using my flight stick and xbox360 controller. when you start up fsx keep your flight stick unplug till you get passed the loading screen. pause your fsx plug in the flight stick and wait for a minute for the computer to load it in now go to your controller and see if it is active you might have to select it rather then the mouse for controlles. also add if you have fsuipc. cause it could be the problem as well always good idea to add it when asking for assistance. because it has speacail key and joystick assignments as well

I'm a tech at a huge dealership. Some, not all, of our pcs have an issue with IE running really slow and some times not responsive at all. The thing is, all other programs wether it be firefox or some kind of messanger are not affected at all. I originally thought maybe it was some kind of connection issue, but after having both AT&T and the communications company that originally setup our connection come out and verify there is nothing wrong, I'm stuck searching for answers. I know it's not the "temp" or "offline" files as we delete and refresh the pc's all the time.

Answer:Non-responsive programs

Hiya

Lets see what you have running, as you may have some background things running causing this problem.

Lets take a look at a log. go to http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Regards

I put it all together worked great for 10min +/- had all drivers installed for hardware was running benchmark test on Gpu. Then screen went black no signal from mobo. No error beeps from mobo when RAM is removed, psu fan runs, cpu fan runs and gpu fan runs. Same problem i had with first mobo. And my question is could there be something on my hard drive causing my mobo failures?

This may be a double post, but I can't find my original posting.  My x230 is approximately 30 days past warranty (Windows 7 Pro).  Overnight it has become non-responsive. I have tried with and without battery, two different power supplies. I have tried, multiple times, holding the power button down to "discharge"?  No lights showing, no response to any buttons being pushed.  Within the last week I accepted Lenovo's prompting to update various files, including BIOS.  My recollection it has been re-booted at least once since the Lenovo system updates.  For what it is worth, I have always had the touchpad "turned off" via the software.  Any help, thoughts, or insight would be appreciated.

Answer:X230 non responsive

Make sure that you hold the power button down for a minute without the battery in! Otherwise its a motherboard issue and you might need to buy a new one

I have An ECS K7S5A Pro mother board with a keyboard that won't respond. This is one of the stangest issues I have have ever come across dealing with keyboards. When the computer boots it will boot into Windows XP and the keyboard will not respond but the mouse responds and device manager shows no keyboard listed and no conflicts. Then when you reboot the computer and try to access the bios the the key board still won't respond and the computer boots into Windows as before. No "no keyboard" errors are posted on boot up. I have tried all of the standard trouble shooting techniques (trying different keyboards switching cables etc...). Is the anybody that has come across a systoms like this? I am reluctant to condem this MB because I don't know for sure whats wrong Thanks Scott
 

Answer:Non responsive Key board

Is the keyboard standard PS/2 or the USB kind ( too lazy to check on the specs of the board).
But let's assume that the keyboard is the PS/2 kind. If you tried the usual "song and swap" and still no response, then it's the board chip that is messing up. I would give it a last shot, but looking on the mobo and trying to clear up the CMOS if you haven't tried it yet.

Hi i've encountered an issue which I can't solve by myself.

My PC has been incredibly stable up until today - booting suddenly takes forever, explorer takes ages while loading icons on my desktop, trying to use right mouse button or open folders results in complete hang of the system. If i wait long enough until all desktop icons are loaded, i can even open browser and some folders but eventually explorer or PC hangs anyway, not to mention that everything is working sluggish.

I can open the task manager and check resource usage, also AIDA actually load successfully and according to them - there is no increase in CPU or RAM loads.

I've tried running Eset online scanner and I've checked my system disk with Avast! - they didn't find anything. I've used hijackthis but found no suspicious entries. I've also used combofix but it found only some harmless .dlls none of which were unknown to me.

I am able to load Vista in safemode without non essential programs but the issue exists even there, despite slightly faster booting and icon loading times.

Unfortunately I cannot use system restore and even though I do have complete pc archive - so far I wasn't able to use it, since it's not available in safemode and during normal boot my PC usually hangs before I am able to get to control panel.

At this point I've exhausted all known options and solutions and would welcome any help or suggestions whatsoever. Could it be sudden hardware issue? If so - what could be respons... Read more
