Preferred Solution: New computer Trouble

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: New computer Trouble

Do you have another video card to test with? PCIe or older PCI would be OK for this exercise.QuoteRAM: Patriot Signature series 2GB DDR2 SDRAM Dual Channel (2x 1 gig) What speed RAM is this?By the way, your troubleshooting protocol was very good.

Hi, over the past few weeks I've been having trouble waking my computer from sleep or hibernation. Sometimes it starts up with no problem, but other times it has taken forever to start, restarted completely and then I get a message that it was, "Bug check code: 0000009F, Probably caused by: nt!MmTrimAllSystemPagableMemory Driver. The DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE bug check has a value of 0x0000009F. This bug check indicates that the driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state.". Also, it's had trouble going into hibernation lately. I close the lid, the screen goes off but the computer just stays on indefinitely. It's quite annoying.

I haven't downloaded any new software recently, so I'm not sure what could be causing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, So for Christmas we bought our son a new gaming computer. 3 weeks later we cant get it out of Safe Mode, there is blue lines on the screen and it says Error 43, which I have found is a driver error. So I removed the driver and redownloaded but still nothing. So my husband was talking to a friends son who is tech savey and he said the trouble is windows 10. He said we should delete 10 and go back to 8.1. Does this sound okay. I have no problem doing it if it sounds like our Drivers are just not compatible with 10. Thanks for any input.

What's the brand name and model name and model number of that new computer?
Did it come pre-installed with Windows 8.1 or Windows 10?

I have xp prefessional P4 2.8Gz 512 mb ram.

I just reinstalled windows, which I have done many times before. But this time after reinstalling windows the computer is not running properly. The computer restarts itself when windows is loading while boot up. I suspect the problem is being caused by one of those tune up utility programs ( I think it was Pc Tools) which I used to change up the boot up screen. And from then on I have been having this problem of computer restarting. So I reinstalled windows again and again but this problem is persisting. After 10 or 15 restarts windows loads up. But then after I restart again, it is back to the problem of restarts while booting up. Sometime I get the message " cant find or corrupt WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/CONFIG/SYSTEM , you can attempt to repair using the original xp cd by pressing r at startup" which I tried.

Another problem might be this time I used the full NTFS format of the drive, I usually use the ntfs (quick ) option .
But I am convinced that it is the changing of the boot screen that caused my problem, because when the windows loads up for the first time after reinstalling windows there is a message like " some registry thing was causing a problem but was recovered"

So some help please

Answer:Computer In Serious Trouble

If you have reinstalled the OS several time without any luck I would suspect that you have a problem with the hdd. Try downloading the manufacturer's diagnostic tool and run it to see what condition you hdd is in.

Question: computer trouble

My old Celeron computer (see red in signature), doesn't boot up. I changed the case not too long ago, and connected everything exactly how it was set up before from the store setup, and it doesn't boot up.

Let me explain: The power supply turns on, but the hard drive doesn't boot up, it doesn't show the BIOS or any video signal. What's wrong with this machine?

http://vid12.photobucket.com/albums/...9/DSCI0302.flv


I didn't build the machine at all, the store did, so did I make a mistake?

I can probably take some pics/videos of the computer tomorrow.

Answer:computer trouble

does it have the same power supply.

either way like i say 9/10 times, check the P4 pin.

My HJT file is below - my computer homepage has been overtaken, and my favorites folder keeps getting populated with unwanted links. In the last couple days my computer has been reacting VERY SLOWLY, and has been freezing on webpages too. I had recently downloaded LIMEWIRE a few weeks ago, and just uninstalled it (via ADD/REMOVE - but I don't know if that really got rid of it).

Also, in the ADD/REMOVE program area there are a bunch of programs listed that I obviously never installed (i.e. - MY SEARCH BAR, 1-800 ASSISTANT). When I try to get rid of them, my computer freezes, I shut it down, go back in and they're still there.

Please, Please help me get my computer back to normal. I appreciate it greatly. Happy Holidays.

Question: Computer Trouble

Well my problem is that my computer freezes or restarts itself whenever it pleases. Usually when I have about 3-5 programs running my computer will just freeze, sometimes only one! Then I have to restart it manually, then about 3-4 hours later it will restart itself or freeze again. But this doesn't happen every 3-4 hours, sometimes it can be days before it will freeze/restart then I have to do the process of re-booting my computer again. I was talking to a friend about this, he knows a thing or two about computers. He says it's the lack of memory on my computer that once I have too many programs running at once the processor can take all that memory at once, then it will restart or freeze on it's own...

I've had this computer a little over 2 years now, and this started about late March of this year, before that, everything was running smoothly, no freezes or restarting.

If anyone has any feedback on this, feel free to reply, thanks.

Ok here is what has been going on with my computer. First I started getting Blue screens about every 3 minutes and I had to reboot. So i went into the bios and looked to see if there was anything strange and I couldn't find anything, my friend told me to flash the bios to see if that would fix it. Then i started getting some error saying there was a problem with a windows system file and that I needed to restart. I did and then got stuck in a "boot loop" where it kept booting up to a screen asking me if i wanted to start normally, boot in safe mode, go to last known configuration, etc and no matter what i chose it would boot up to the same screen. So then I looked around online and it told me to try repairing windows using the xp disk, so I popped it in, booted from disk went through all the stuff to do a repair (not the command prompt one, the one where it just reinstalls windows and leaves all your files alone) and it gets to 100% and then i get a blue screen with a 0x00000050 error. I popped my hard drive into another computer and I was able to access all my files, but I could not access stuff under documents and settings for my account. I think it is because it is password protected. So I need help with either figuring out how to fix windows so i can boot up my hard drive or I need to know how to be able to access my user account on a different computer so i can just transfer all the files over to a different computer and try reformatting the hard drive tha...

Answer:I'm having computer trouble

First question : How to fix Windows

That Stop error can be caused by faulty memory or errors on the disk.

a)Boot into the Recovery Console and run Chkdisk - Chkdsk /r See HERE

b)Try using each memory stick on it`s own,or swap out the memory.


Second question : How to access files.

Take ownership of the folder and the files.SeeHERE

I suggest you try the second answer first

Answer:Computer trouble

If you had two inches of water, you are probably just experiencing the final failure of your motherboard. Assuming this is a Tower, then two inches of your motherboard got wet. My bet is the system is dead and can't be revived. I have seen wet systems work well for a few days and then just die.

I just built a new computer with the following specs:
windows xp
athlon64 3800
geforce gt 6800 256mb
2gb kingston hyper x ram
2 WD 80gb harddrives (raid 0 )

For the first week it ran great after that it started to get BSOD referring to nv4.disp and bad_pool_caller. After trying everything I reinstalled windows. It ran good for another day through all installations then while playing a game I got a blank blue screen of death just saying a device was trying to corrupt the system. After that every restart says it recovered from a serious error or something about win32. Its running slow as heck but it doesnt have random lock ups only a blue screen of death. It ran fast until I started the installations on windows update. Does anyone have any clue whats going on? Thanks alot

So, I bought a new cpu cooler and it's a bit bigger than expected.

I cannot fit it to blow air out of the back of the case because the fan of the cpu cooler will be hitting memory.

Other than that, I have a fan on front panel that used to serve as an intake.

Would it be viable if I turned my new cpu cooler to make it as an intake from back of the computer (since it's pretty close to the back of the case), while turning the front panel fan on the opposite way to push the air out?

Hello,
 
I need help fixing an issue.  I play poker on my computer.  I normally use two monitors.  I'm having an issue with a software program and I believe I've isolated the problem to the 2nd monitor.  I've completely disconnected the 2nd monitor from the computer.  I've set the Display settings to only recognize the main monitor as seen below.  The problem is, when I move sometime from my main monitor I'm still able to move it past the sides of my monitor.  
 
Does anyone know how to change this setting?  I want my computer to only recognize one monitor.  So if I try to move a application around my computer screen it wont "fall off the edge of screen"
 
Thanks in advance for any help!  Here are a few screen shots to illustrate the issue.

Answer:Computer Trouble

Hi gary There's no actual "fix" to that, this is the normal behavior of windows under Windows. You can move them off the screen as much as you want. You can't fix something that isn't broken so there's no solution to your problem. If you were to move a window out of the screen by mistake, you can do the following. Move your mouse over the program icon in the taskbar, then move the mouse over the window preview and right-click on it. From there, select Maximize and it'll maximize the window in your main screen. See the screenshot below (the options are in French I know, but this shows you where I want you to click):

Hello all
First I want to say thanks in advance for any help. I have seen this forum before and read many threads where nice people are simple helping eachother with issues.

First off, here are my system specs as I can remember:

Windows XP
D975XBX2 Intel board
Dual core at 2.4
Nvidia 8800GTX single card
Raptor 60GB 10000rpm drive
250GB for data
2gb Kingston ram
My problems started maybe a week ago. I am an avid user of Torrents, P2P, online games, etc etc and never had any issues. My comp was fast, no crashes etc.

Other than some basic adware, recently I got some form of Trojan(s). I downloaded every program I could find a good review on to see what I could do. AVG, Avira, a supposed program that is very good removing torrents.. Trojan Remover. All of it seemed to work and my computer began to run alot better.
Recently winlogon.exe started using most of my CPU. I went from 100fps in games to 15, internet became very slow, multiple errors all over the place.

I turn on my comp tonight and my anti virus starts popping up going nuts, which is usual at this point. Windows then crashes after 3mins. I power off, restart, and there is now a black screen that requests a password to login. I have no password (never have) so I left it blank and hit OK. Windows seems like it will go to desktop but instead all I can see is my background pic. with nothing else. Hitting CTRL ALT DEL makes a prompt pop-up saying my admin hasnt given my those rights.

Hi there, I desperately need some help with my computer here

I formatted my computer yesterday because I thought there were viruses and spywares. I was actually facing problem with this RavMon thing. No matter how i deleleted it, it still came back up. Its taking a lot of my RAM. Besides, there were other problems that lead from there. I put a few folders on hidden. But I could not access the hidden files. I know they're there but no matter how I enable "show hidden files" at the folder option, the folder does not show up.

I have an external harddisk. This is where the hidden folder vanishes. Other than that, I have 3 drives on my computer. The drive that contains the OS doesn't seem to have the problem. The other 2 drives display unknown characters at the "OPEN" & "EXPLORE" when I right click on any of them. The problem is that even when I have reformatted the computer, the problem does not go away. What I am supposed to do ? I have turned off the external harddisk thinking that it might have been some virus in there or something. Please, I need help. This is getting really out of hand. Thank you

Question: computer trouble

I recently purchased my notebook but it was the last one so I took the one they had on display. They said it would take a few hours before I get it because they had to do a system restore so I said I would just come back for it the next day. My problem is in regards to tracking cookies problem that keeps showing on my computer. Symantec detects it and resolves it, but it shows up again each scan. They are also tracking cookies that has the store's/company's name in it. I also cant get rid of their name under 'Users' and change it. If they did a system restore should I be having these problems? How do I get rid of the tracking cookie and edit 'Users'? Thank you.

edit: I downloaded and ran Spybot and it removed the cookies. I ran it again to make sure and it's still clean. So my only problem is the 'Users' part. Should I post that problem elsewhere? Thanks
 

Answer:computer trouble

None of this is really a malware problems. First cookies are not problems. See the info in step 11 of this link: How to Protect yourself from malware!

If you have administrator priviledges on the user account you are logging in with than just delete the stores user account. And yes as implied above this is not an issue for this forum.

Answer:New Computer Trouble. =(

Check cable signal indicates your monitor is not getting a signal, obviously, but we know its capable of receiving one because it works on your old system. So I would go to the next culprit, the video card in your new system. It is possible for internal components to get rattled during shipping, so I would open up the side of your case and check to see the video card is properly secured in its slot. A couple additional questions:
1. Is the new computer making any post beeps during startup. Can you see any fans spinning even though your monitor is not getting a signal?
2. Does your monitor use DVI adapters? Or are you using some kind of VGA to DVI adapters?
3. What kind of adapters does your old system use on its video card?

Right, got a new computer, built it myself, everything is recognised correctly in the bios and the self checks, system is as follows:

Asus Crosshair motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Socket AM2
500GB SataII Hard drive
2X1GB DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 MEMORY
7900GS 256MB 256bit GDDR3 500MHz PCI-E Graphics Card
550w ATX PSU
DVD RW Drive

I am trying to install Windows XP 64x Pro on it, the drive is otherwise unused so blank, and un partitioned. When I power on the system either with the disk already in or putting it in afterwards I get "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER".

Since I am trying to boot from the CD and not from the HDD I changed the priorities to allow this in the BIOS, though it has made no difference what settings I have them on. The hard drive is recognised and is showing correctly as 500GB in the BIOS, with the sectors, speed etc updated automatically.

The drive clearly attempts to read the CD, but after about 15 seconds stops and shows the error. I tried reading the disk in my current computer, it works fine, I also tried using the CD drive from my computer in the new one, it again attempted to read but only showed the same error.

I connected my current hard drive (IDE not SATA) to the new computer, and it managed to boot windows, but obviously could not get past the login as it is set up for a different computer, and is a 32 bit version.

So currently I am thinking that its either a problem with the SATA on the motherboard, or a pro... Read more

Answer:Trouble with new computer

Hi

First of all try loading any other bootable cd in your new machine. If it boots and your cd is ok as you suggest there could be a drive/media incompatibility problem.

Otherwise these symptoms could lead to a lot of actual problems like:

-Bad drive
-Bad or insufficient PSU ( try removing anything than the basic stuff from your machine and leave only your 2 drives (HDD and optical, one module of RAM and graphics card) and see if that helps.
-Bad connection between drive and motherboard (reinstall the cable or replace it)

The drivers you mention for SATA and other devices are actually loaded during the first steps of windows installation so this can't be the problem in my opinion.

Hello,

I have been having some computer issues, with my system running very slow and some mouse delay where if I try to push a link it would actually take a few seconds before the mouse can highlight that link. (I hope I am explaining this correctly).

So I run a super anti spyware scan and deleted some things, but when I ran my malewarebytes scan I get like 12 infections. I delete those, then I run TDSSKiller and nothing comes up, so I get this brilliant idea to run Combofix. I had this file for some time, and when I tried to run it it prompted me to update, and add restore point. After I run combofix, I noticed that my sytem is running much better, but I have some files missing. Firefox icon is not on my desktop, but I can still access firefox by using a HTML doc that's on my desktop. I have no sound now, and I do not have a start menu, or the bar connected to the start menu (Where the clock is etc.) I also cannot access internet explorer from my desktop but like I said I can still access firefox, through my html doc.

I really need some help getting some of my files back, but I also want to fight this infection the right way. With the right instructions, because my knowledge is limited in this area.

Here is the combofix report and after this I will post the combofix quarantine.

Thanks for looking into this.

Hi. I recently bought a computer off a friend, everything went fine for the first few days then I tried to play Minecraft. The computer was missing a driver, I figured this was no big deal so I downloaded a driver and started playing. After a few hours the computer froze and the sound stuttered, I waited a few minutes but it didn't look like it would stop so I turned the computer off and started playing again. It did the freezing/stuttering thing every few hours and I would have to turn it off and restart, I figured it was something wrong with the driver and I would get around to fixing it sometime when I wasn't with friends.

Last night the computer froze again, by now I was fairly used to it so I turned it off thinking I would be playing again within a minute or two, as the computer started up I got an error message about something called "ExpressGate" and an error about my CPU fan, I thought that was weird but since it was late at night I wasn't in the mood to start hunting around on google to try and fix it, when I tried to jump back on Minecraft it kept telling me that it "Couldn't connect to Minecraft.net" I thought this was weird since I was on skype with people who were playing it fine, I checked and I could get onto the website on my browser aswell.

Question: computer trouble

I was playing Unreal Tournament 2004 yesterday, and joined a game online. It automatically started downloading a map for the game for the game I joined and my computer just suddenly froze and I was unable to control alt delete or anything. I had to restart it multiple times and every time it would freeze. The desktop would freeze too. This is usually all within a minute of startup. Safe mode had some trouble as well, but finally was able to get it to work. I ended up doing system restore on it. Unfortunately that didn't seem to help.

Even since doing the restore, my computer has still been acting weird, and then today I decided to turn it off to clean all the dust out of it. Turned the computer on when I was done, and started freezing again. Sometimes IF i got to the desktop it would change resolutions back and forth and finally stay with one. It would sometimes freeze right at the POST and before the Windows XP screen, and sometimes there as well. Eventually I got it to stay running without freezing. Turned it off after saving everything just for the heck of it and the same thing happened a few more times. Also the monitor would sometimes even go into standby mode with just the blinking light.

I have done virus scans. I did a full one yesterday after the restore and it found nothing. I also ran Lavasoft's Ad-Aware and it didn't find anything critical, only temporary internet files and cookies I think, "pricacy objects". I also took a look at my HDD Health p... Read more

Iím having trouble with a new system I just built. The first problem is it appears to work and detects all of the drives but it wonít load Windows. It flashes a blue screen that I canít read for a split second then restarts and it does the same when I try to load safe mode. Maybe I should have uninstalled the video drivers before putting my HDD in the new system. I was able to load it with Knoppix and access my Windows files. I tried to load the Windows XP installer CD but it says itís inspecting my hardware then the screen goes blank. I thought it might be a video issue since the primary graphics adapter was set to PCI slot but I set it to PCIex and it didnít change anything.

The other problem is the processor is running a little hot at around 52c idle. I installed it with some thermal paste on the middle without spreading it just like the manual said to. The heatsink is barley touching the heatspreader on my RAM but I doubt thatís the problem. The case seems to have good airflow I put 1 120mm fan in the back and there are 2 80mm fans in the front and the PSU has 2 fans running. Could it be that the thermal paste just needs time to set in?

My Dell Latitude C810 laptop is, pretty much on the fritz. Everytime I turn it on, the Dell logo pops up, followed by the Windows XP screen with the blue bars indicating the OS is loading up. The problem is that the latter icons stay on the screen (there's no black screen or blue screen following the Windows XP splash screen).

Another issue is that I purchased a Windows Booting/Repair/Recovery disc from Shatir Solutions. It also came with a Recovery Console mechanism, which will ultimately restore this laptop. The problem is, I cannot get past the Password identification section (it asks for my Administrator password, which I've newly changed from BIOS).

Can anyone help me out with this? What do I have to do? I'm at my wits end!!

Note: I CANNOT BOOT TO SAFE MODE, SAFE MODE WITH COMMAND PROMPT, OR SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. EVERYTIME I TRY, THE COMPUTER FREEZES UP.

Thank you in advance.

Answer:I'm having a bit of computer trouble...

I am not sure but going by the 'NOTE', looks like an OS problem to me. I would have suggested to reinstall the OS but then I would like you to wait till someone more sensible looks into the issue.

Hi there,

I am presently a student here, a Junior in the malware removal classes but I don't feel like I am ready to try and fix this on my own.

I am using my Daughters laptop as I did not want to go online with my own desktop.

Here are the details:and

Computer has been behaving strangely the last few days...IE freezing alot, having to close it & retstart IE constantly, computer lagging...etc...
I had run MBAM quick scan and it found nothing. This morning I was using it and that blue screen that advises Windows is shutting down to protect my data came up....I was going out for the afternoon so I just turned it off until I got home. Later, when I tried to restart, it started but none of my AV software started, no firewall either. I tried to start MBAM to do a full scan but the hourglass just stayed there and MBAM did not start...so I shut it down and came here for help.

Please help as I hate my Daughters laptop...she seems to be having an issue with typing, the cursor keeps jumping all over the place...took me 20 minutes to type this post.....grrrrrr...I will try to figure out why while I wait for a respons.

Thanks in advance...

Hey guys,
So bascially, im using a asus k8v se delux with amd 64 processor 2.0 3000+, im a hardcore gamer and i use raid harddrives 200 gb x 2 seagate barracuda. with 3 sticks ofr 512 ram.

So the current problem im having is , everytime I play games or start up windows recently, the screen would freeze and kinda stick there like a painting. Then i would restart my computer and i would get a blank screen saying System failed cpu test, then i would just restart again and it would boot up windows to my desktop and it would freeze. Now again I seek help if anyone has had this problem. I basically figured it might be my CPU over heating or my video card, so i removed my fan pulled the amd chip out and reapplied the paste ( forgot the name ) and put it back and made sure everything was snug, so i played for another 3 - 4 hours work up this morning and the same problem occured, my cpu and mobo temp was at 33 for mobo and 37C - 45 C for the amd, now I still am clueless of why my screen would lock up.

Now i called a friend told him the same issue he said to check for hardware failure, Check the ram and etc so ran thru all that testing each stick in each ram slot and the computer still locked up. So im just wondering if anyone out there has had this stupid issue with their asus. But im wondering how else i should check for stuff. So please HELP ME!
 

Answer:Trouble with my computer

well heres the problem, I Unhooked all my hard drives and etc, and only kept the CPU Mobo and PSU connected with my Vid card, and i ran in. I went in to bio's and basically tryed to fix all the settings me and friend pretty much did that the whole day. While in the bio's it pretty much froze, because i thought apparently it would be a virus or a harddrive issue. So we figured it had to be hardware, What exactly does a Memtest do ?

Question: Computer trouble.

I was on my computer which is a custom build. I was on youtube when I clicked on a random video and then my screen went blank because the monitor was not receiving anything my computer did tend to do that when clicking on programs and such but would usually come back on after a second but this time it did not, I waited a good ten minutes before attempting to turn it off by the button at the top but they did not do anything, Even force shutting it down wouldn't turn the computer off so I waited a further ten minutes before turning the computer off at the back, (I knew this was a bad idea but couldnt see another option) I then attempted to turn the computer back on but was greeted with the noise of my graphics card fan on full power constantly and the computer wouldnt make the beep of it booting and still no display going to my screen. I have tried taking the graphics card out and running on the stock one but i am still met with the same result. If anybody could give me a solution or just tell me what the non-functioning component is I'd be very grateful as i don't want to spend money on the computer for it not to be fixed.

Question: Computer Trouble

On startup, my computer freezes and doesn't unfreeze. I'm doing everything in Safe Mode right now. It doesn't freeze until the main screen actually shows up. I have no idea what could be wrong. I did some research and found out it could be drivers, but I updated them all via Device Manager and it still does it. Anyone have any ideas/ solutions?

Answer:Computer Trouble

Please do the following:
1 - Boot into Windows normal mode and let it freeze. Note the time on the clock and post that back in your next post.
2 - Reboot into Safe Mode and run as much of this stuff as you can: http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217...ns-452654.html
3 - Post that with your next post also

We'll use the time and date from your last attempt to get into Normal mode to search for error messages in the info from Step 3. Hopefully that'll help us locate the thing that's causing this.

I'm having trouble after my computer has been on and running for a bit, my firefox pages will come up gray and not display anything. My Task manager won't pop up. I clicked on my computer at one point and it was asking me something about mapping the drive, I can't get programs to open, and the start menu programs won't open, and i just have to restart. Also, every time I start my computer it tells me that I dont have a firewall up, and that my norton corporate antivirus might be out of date, even though I keep going in to update it.

I recently had the red bio hazard background screen malware thing, but I ran everything in the world and got rid of it (or at least I think).

Oh, also when it was acting up I tried to use hijack this, and it said "out of memory"

My Mothers community family computer has had it from what iv been told so far...

Im starting this thread in preparation for tomorrows adventure even tho i do not have this computer in my will yet.

One of my friends had a look at it ,he is a linux guy and im not sure he's up to date with windows any more. We had talked over the phone as he told me the OS is done for ,needs linux ,didn't get as much info as id like to. This computer has been unprotected for some time due to me not being there to fix everything.

From what iv been told so far it won't run any windows commands with out virus popups from a impostor virus program , supposedly they can even get it to turn on at times.

I never let my computer get viruses so i really wouldn't know how to go about this ,i need to know how to kill all these resource eating processes so i can install hijackthis ,Malwarebytes or superantispyware and install a good AV.

If i could get some pointers on how to reboot the computer to run minimal processes so i can download software to clean this up it would greatly help.

I don't have any malware,but I do have someone using remote access to completely control my computer.Who ever they are they have made me a non-entity on my computer and themselves the user.They download ABI coded files,files in chinese,have taken over my Registry,my modem,all my Windows Files.I am not allowed to change anything on my computer.They have even changed my anti-virus and firewall.I tried uninstalling mine and installing zone alarm and AVG.They took over the license on my AVG and put everything in Checkoslavakian.Sorry if that is misspelled.i could go on and on,but I think you get the idea.I don't know if I'm just hacked or if I have a virus also,since I can't run a proper anti-virus check.They alter the test log.I don't quite know who I take this problem to.I called the free Microsoft security number.HA! HA! They said they didn't know anything and call my pc manufacturer.Any ideas who I go to with this? Oh by the way,I looked all over for the READ THIS FIRST BEFORE ASKING ANYTHING and I couldn't find it anywhere.The link I was sent,says it's outdated.I could use any ideas on this one anyone could give me.I just bought this pc from Dell last March.Thanks Yall.LostNHopeless
 

Answer:In serious trouble with computer!

If someone was able to gain remote access and control of your computer, then this was most likely done via a trojan.

So currently I am unable to use the internet on my computer or run anything. I can't use commands or stuff like system restore. I get barraged with messages about how different things are unable to run or start up. I used malwarebytes and avast to remove the trojans, viruses, whatever and I guess they must have deleted some vital computer files while removing them.. I have no idea what to do.

Answer:My computer is in trouble.

Can you post one of Malwarebytes infected logs,maybe we can get a clue.
Are you getting...A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message ?

I am really starting to lose patience with my ECS K7S5A motherboard. Everytime I turn on the computer, I have to go to BIOS for it to detect the hard drive. After that, I have a windows me startup disk in the floppy drive, and I want for the screen that shows the system specs. After that, it loads the boot record from the floppy disk and I wait for it to scan the PCI and other stuff. After that I get to the command line. I type FDISK and I wait for it to open.

Now this is the part that annoys me. Sometimes the computer will say "No fixed disks present" or other times, it will actually open. When it opens I select create Primary partition and then I wait for about 5 minutes. During those 5 minutes, I witness the program going back from 9% to 0% then up to 6% to 0%, and it kept on doing that until I lost my patience.

I can't figure out what the problem is and I am hoping that one of you guys will know. I have tried putting my EXISTING hard drive from the computer I am typing this thread from. I put it in and it does not detect it. I am really fed up with this. Please, help me...

Question: Computer trouble

My computer won't turn on. I followed all of the procedures like reseating ram, unplugging all power cables, removing video and sound cards, etc. Even though the computer will won't turn on, the motherboard light is on. I was told that the motherboard was the problem and that I will have to buy a new one. My question is if the light on the motherboard lights up, but the computer won't turn on, could the problem be something other than the motherboard?
 

Answer:Computer trouble

My answer is : Yes,it could be the PSU.

The mobo led can still light up,even if the PSU has failed for all practical purposes.

I`m not saying it is the PSU,just that it`s a possibility.

There is a good thread HEREthat gives some tips on testing the PSU.

If you have tried removing all hardware components,that just leaves the mobo/processor and PSU.

Question: Computer Trouble

I am using Windows XP professional and have recently have encountered several problems. About a month ago I started having problems with Outlook (which I use for e-mail). I was having e-mail message windows freeze on me (I would reply to an e-mail and the message window would freeze, not allowing me to close or send the message). This problem has persisted sporadically over the past month.

Then just last night, my display's resolution somehow was reset to the lowest color quality (4 bit). I attempted to change it back, but the drop down menu under Display Properties only gave me the one option - 4 bit. What could have caused this and how can I restore the higher resolution setting?

I use Norton AntiVirus software w/the latest updates, and have scanned my system - no viruses are present.

Any help would be appreciated!

ok i did a really stupid thing, i bought a compusa brand heatsink, it was copper and SAID it could handle up to 2 Ghz. Well i used a 1 ghz athalon tbird (not overclocked). I was in bios, and i was watching the temp and it rapidly shot up to 130 and i hurried up and powered down. now when i turn it on i hear all the components running, but the video card fan turns on, spins for a while, then turns off. im thinking the motherboard overheated and blew a few circuits, does anyone agree? anyway, if there is any help i would appriciate it!
 

Answer:bad bad bad computer trouble

Sounds like a good guess. Nothing comes up at all? Does the bootup screen appear? Can you still access the bios? Ya know, in your haste, removing the fan and installing another, you could have simply unplugged something or something came loose from a socket, like the video card. Recheck your connections and your card seats.

Answer:Having trouble with my computer

an idea might be to make a boot disk from another computer,.......

You will need 4 blank formatted diskettes for this operation

Insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box type
drive:\bootdisk\makeboot.exe a:
and then press ENTER, where drive is the letter of your CD-ROM drive.
You will be prompted to insert the 4 diskettes, one at a time.
When all 4 diskettes are created you will get the message
"The setup boot disks have been created successfully".
you will need ur win2000 cd and key number.

gosh,....i'm assuming ur win2k ?....

anyway,....its a way around to load up , but i dont know what the problem is.

anybody else got an idea?

As part of my job I manage and maintain a small computer lab of 4 computers. They were all set up by a previous admin who no longer works here. They are setup to login automatically to a limited account.

Users are able to temporarily save files to the hard drive, but they are wiped clean when the computer automatically restarts each night. Users can not install any software.

Recently I installed Internet Explorer 8 on the systems (as Administrator) and although they are working fine, Internet Explorer goes through its first-time-startup routine every day. This is quite involved, asking about Phishing filters and default search engines and what-not. Its very annoying to have to click through everyday.

On the administrator account, I only had to go through this once. So I tried to make the default user account an Administrator account temporarily, hoping that would resolve the issue. It didn't.

Whatever changes IE is making to its file system to indicate that the first-time-startup has been run are being lost each day. Any idea how I can make these settings stick and rid my users of the annoying first-time-startup process?
 

Answer:Trouble with Computer Lab PCs

how are the PCs wiping clean automatically after restarts each night?
are they using some program like DeepFreeze? if so, then you just have to disable it, reconfigure windows and the when everything is in place, re-enable it

Hello, everyone

For a few months now, my computer has been unable to play games -- when I load a game, the game will run in spurts, and I will have a crippling frame rate.

Today, I received the graphics card I bought from Newegg, which I thought would fix the problem. But, after installing the graphics card, downloading the drivers and loading a game, I experienced the same problem I had before, with my other graphics card.

At this point, I don't think the problem is my graphics card. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be, and any steps I can take? Feel free to ask questions; I might not have provided enough information.

First we need abit more information to troubleshoot what is going on with your machine.

What os are you currently running ?
Is this computer prebuilt or a custom built machine ?
Also does your computer lag much even without you playing any type of games ?
What graphics card do you have currently ?

Ok so this is very different, I have never really seen this before.

My computer has a very small, and random problem. It is not really in one spot, but several. I'll start with the obvious. Some things that are downloaded get corrupt. For example, I downloaded Mozilla FireFox, and the setup was corrupt. I deleted, and re-downloaded, and it was fine. Same has happened for other things. Most games work for only a short while before they crash, and this also goes for games on web browsers, that use Java and Shockwave. Java will work for some time, and it is always random when it crashes, no pattern at all. There is also no error message under the events thing when anything crashes.

For the hardware errors, the BSOD does occur, but again completely randomly. And also, sometimes when I shut down (start, shut down) and it does shut down normally, but then sometimes it starts back up as I'm walking away. Nothing beeps, nothing sounds out of place.

I have reinstalled the OS several times, and even tried different cds. Everything is legit, so there are no problems with someone messing with the OS before downloading it. I have also done hard drive tests, memory tests, and have tried a different hard drive. Same problems happen.

Anyone who could help, help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello at the moment i was trying to restart my computer and everytime i tried to restart it to factory settings i would get a blue screen with this pop up that said wdf_violation so i looked up different possible ways to reset my computer. i tried doing safe mode nothing and then i seen one that said to hard reset holding down the power button. Just to clarify before i tried the holding down power button my computer was working fine it turned on and everything i wanted to reset my computer to factory because it was starting to get slower after i upgraded to windows 10 i thought it was a temporary lag thing but it kept going so i wanted to reset but i couldnt reset it because of the blue screen pop up saying wdf_violation. anyways after i hold down the power button i hold it for 10 seconds like it said to hard reset and soon after it turned off and i turned it back on and the power button turns on the light  lights up i hear the fan but the screen remains black. there no LED light the mouse turns on the keyboard remains off and the monitor is still black screen everything seems to be running well but no display on my monitor i dont see my log in screen where i type my password to log into my account either just a black screen and i cant get out of that is there anything i can do to fix this?i really appreciate the help thank you.

Question: Computer Trouble

Hey Everyone,

I'm having a bit of computer trouble. My friend bought me an HP Pavillon g7 laptop for a gift but she didn't buy insurance for it (She didn't have the money for it) so its has the one year limited warrenty.

Well it was working awesome since I turned it on and set it up. But a few days ago it went all crazy.

Here's what happened it installed an update I believe Bios and an windows update and now when it restarts it freezes at the start up window so I will have to turn it off and re-turn it back on. After that it will go to the window where the ''Start up Scan'' is and will take a while to do the scan and then finally I can get on my laptop. It does this everytime the other night thought it made me do a system restore to the point where I had to fill the registy out again.

Does anyone know what's going on with this computer?

Also it has gotten the blue screen of death once.

I had my friend look at it and he let the updates update themselves and all the scans scan but its still doing it.

After successfully restoring my Windows 98SE everything worked perfectly but then three days later I started my computer and nothing would appear on the screen. The computer and Monitor were on, I checked everything. The computer's HDD light would stay on for a few seconds and nothing would happen. I tried the monitor with another computer and it worked, so is my computer video card messed up or what happened?? . Now once again my computer doesn't work what should I do :-/

Okay I have 1 harddrive. I want to format. I have malware problems and have been waiting since saturday for help in malware forums but nothing yet, I've decided to just format. So I put in my Windows XP, boot it, I press enter to install XP. Then it freezes on the License agreement page. I can't deny, accept, or go to the next page. It's just frozen.
 

Answer:Trouble Formatting my Computer

Usually you press F8 to agree to the license. Is the drive a SATA or IDE hard drive? If SATA, you may need the F6 drivers on a floppy to get setup to see the drive. Alternatively, you could boot to a 3rd party utility (like from your drive manufacturer) to format, then boot to the XP disc. But if it still locks up at the license agreement, that wouldn't help. Maybe run the diagnostic for your drive (also a download from the drive maker's web site) to see if it's 100% healthy. This tool usually also includes a low level format option.

I recently bought an ASUS motherboard, 1gig DDR2 RAM, AMD Dual Core 2.2ghz, NVidia Geforce 7600GT, and a 450 watt power supply, and its all in an ATX case, but when i switched the power source on for the first time and the computer started up and nothing happened, all of the fans went on, but the drives didnt sound like they went on, but the LED on the motherboard was shining green. The power source has 1-2-3 settings and a switch next to it and i dont have a manual..any idea what that is? i thought it might be the problem but i dont wanna fool around with such expensive equipment. HELP!

I am having trouble with my computer speakers. there is noise coming out of them but when i want to hear a video on the computer there is no sound. I have tried to go in and set the volumn to turn it up on the comoputer but it wont even let me click on it. please help me.
 

Answer:having trouble with my computer speakers

What type of speakers do you have?

Check to see if you have the latest driver installed. To do this google your speakers, and look for drivers from the manufacturer and download and install them, if yours are not the latest.

But before you do that, make sure you have the green plug in the right port.

When I try to shut down computer I sometimes get a blue screen and the computer just restarts or it just restarts without the blue screen. I can't just shut it down. This happened right after I installed a program called "picture package". When I try to uninstall "Picture package" I get an error saying "install shield setup launcher has stopped working." Please let me know where to look for the problem.

Thanks!!
 

Answer:Having trouble shutting down computer.

Right click on My Computer

Select 'Properties'

Click on 'Advanced' tab

Where you see 'Startup and Recovery' click on 'Settings'

Uncheck 'Automatically restart'

When you shutdown the BSOD will remain on your desktop long enough to take note of the 'Stop' error code.

You will see something to the effect 'Stop 0x0000008e (0x00000000 - - -)

Post the Stop error code.

In order to shut down after display of the BSOD, at least on my system, I have to hold the PC start button in for a few seconds.

Before you shutdown click on 'Start' and select 'Run'

In Run type "eventvwr.msc" without the quotes and click OK

In the left pane of event viewer click on 'System' and in the right pane look for any errors pertaining to InstallShield. Do the same for 'Application' in the left pane.

If you find any errors, double click on the error. This will open 'Properties'.

In 'Properties' click on the clipboard button (just below the directional arrows, looks like two sheets of paper).

Come back to this thread and in the reply box right click and select 'Paste' this will post the error and we can go from there.
