Preferred Solution: HP kayak XA-s Problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: HP kayak XA-s Problem

Your moom, huh? I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess you meant "mom."MUCH more information about the problem would be appreciated. Please tell us exactly when you get this error messege, exactly what it says if possible, and as much technical information on the system as possible.With what information you've given, all I can say is there might be a problem with your CPU fan. Overheating issue maybe?

I own an HP Kayak with dual slot 1 -- which can support upto 500mhz p3 processors in them. i have tried several pairs of p2 400mhz and 350 mhz as well as 500mhz p3 pairs. but i have been unable to achieve the simultaneous working of 2 processors. every time when i checked the performance by any diagnostic software i found out that only one of the pair is working. i have been using win xp pro.

can somebody guide where i am making the mistake which fails me in achieving the performance by the dual processors.

I believe you will need to do a Repair install to switch to a Multiprocessor HAL.

I have a HP Kayak XM600 and it has been very reliable up until the other day. I booted it up and the pc beeped serveral times (cant remember the sequence). On the front LCD panel, the pc reports "NO RIMM". I have removed the cards from the RIMM slots and inserted them in one by one and turned the computer on, and i still got the same warning. Is my motherboard dead? Is there some way of completley resetting the pc? I have tried booting through BIOS by moving the jumpers but I still got the same response.

Answer:usb problem,DVD drive problem , auto startup problem and shutdown problem

With so many problems I would recommend sending the laptop back if you're still in warranty. Make sure that the new charger runs at the same voltage/current as the old charger, it starting up automatically will be the least of your problems if it explodes your battery! Does it say anything in device manager about your usb ports?

I need some help and if anyone can help me I will be very appreciated. My system is Windows 7 Ultimate X64.
1. USB port.
I used to have a Lenovo thinkpad W520, the USB ports can still provide power and the devices connected to the port won't be disconnected after the PC turning into sleep mode even power off, but everytime when I wake up my Precision 7510, the keyboad need a long wait to be reconnected and all of the external hard drives are reconnected too (Auto play also pops out). And I cannot charge my cellphone even if the precision is in sleeping mode with power connected to it.

2. External Monitor,
I get a Dell P2417H monitor. I connect the monitor to my PC through Display port. 
Then I use the Screen Resolution to Identify the monitor. I then use "Identify" to identify the monitor, at first both of the monitors show (1\2), which is correct because windows is set to duplicate the monitors. Then I selected Show desk top only on 1 and then "Identify" the monitors. Both of the monitors show a big 1. Then I selected show desk top only on 2 and then "Identify" the monitors. Both of the monitors show a big 2.(My p2417H is actually 2)
Then I select apply so only p2417H shows the display and close the laptop's lid. (I set the power options, so that the PC won't be turn off when I close the lid or after a long deactivation)

Answer:Precision 7510 USB port problem, monitor problem and Intel Rapid Storage problem

Some of what you're experiencing may be due to the different hardware than you had in the older system - however, one BIG possibility:
Windows 7 does not fully support the power management features of the Skylake CPU and chipset in your system.  Even if Windows 7 is correctly installed, there will be missing features (Microsoft never implemented the advanced Skylake power management features in anything older than Windows 8).
You'd likely experience some of the same issues with a Skylake Lenovo system.
The Skylake platform in your system WILL run Windows 7 (it's the last Intel platform that will;  the newly released Kaby Lake won't run it at all), but it won't implement all the Skylake power management features it has no drivers for (and never will have drivers for).  Unless you're completely stuck with Windows 7, most of the issue -- or all of them -- will go away if you move to Windows 10.  If you don't do it now, this is the last hardware you'll be buying -- as above, Windows 7 is history as of the release of the new Kaby Lake platform.

i load up my machine as per usual and norton antivirus cannot load up at startup because it says i have a corrupted or missing ccimscan.dll and defalert.dll.

norton seems to be ****ed up and symantec webapage has no solution, which also has coincided with my roxio cd buring version 5 basic. roxio doesn't load up at all, and also in windows media player 9, i cannot burn cd's as it says the roxio burining engine is not there and or the directcdbf.dll is missing.

i performed scandisk and all that shite and on that programme in windows where it tells you if you need to replace files ( can't remember its name). anyway the files that are corrupted are uneng.exe (which i found out is the roxio burn engine unistall programme???) and the tntlvr.dll is corrupted too. don't know what this tnt thing is but i am assuming its my tnt2 graphics card???, but it isnt showing any problems.

I believe I have a virus these are the symptoms i am experiencing and what I have tried so far:-

1. I am having problems using google, sometimes when I click on results they go to another page, sometimes it decided i am not connected to the internet when I know I am.

2. I started by trying to run Malwarebytes but this would not open, then the same problem occurred with Spybot, it wont open.

3. I tried to scan with Trend Micro but the virus has prevented Java from working and so Trend does not work.

4. Tried to do a system restore but that says the drive failed during the restore.

5. AVG does not find any viruses when scanned.

6. Computer will not hibernate, it goes to blackscreen and then back to the desktop.

7. I managed to get Malwarebytes working by renaming the file from mbam.exe to mbam1.exe but now it freezes is not responding about halfway through the scan, have also told it not to scan registry items but it still freezes. Also after it has frozen it will not close even by trying to end the process.

So they are my problems can anyone help? Thanks

Answer:Virus, google problem, Malwarebyte problem, Spybot problem, etc

Try this scan. You can copy it over from another computer on a CD or pen drive if you need to.Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.Please download DrWeb-CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current versionRead the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now?

Hi! I have a few problems with a few difference softwares. I thought it would be best open on thread with all the problems other than opening multiple different threads.
My Problems are:

1) I use mozilla firefox and i have a problem opening PDF files. When i click on a link which leads me to a PDF file, the following error message pops up.
"The adobe acrobat/ reader that is running can not be used to view PDF files in a Web Browser. Please exit Adobe Acrobat/Reader and exit your Wev Browser and try again."
When I use Internet Explorer, I get a similar error message.
"The adobe acrobat/ reader that is running can not be used to view PDF files in a Web Browser. Adobe Acrobet/Reader version 8 or 9 is required. Please exit and try again."
This message tells me to exit Adobe Acrobat/Reader. I don't exactly know how to do that.

2) The other problem I have is with Windows Live Messenger (MSN). This messenger allows you to draw in a conversation. They have a handwriting tool. The problem I have with this tool is that when I use it to draw something, what I draw doesn't appear on the place where I am suppose to draw before sending the message. But when I click send just by drawing something with seeing what is happening on my screen, I will be able to see what I drew in the message sent part of the window. I know this is confusing but it is hard to explain. So basically, while drawing something, I can't see it but when i send it, I can see it.

So I recently moved for my job and packed up my desktop. After 3 months of not using my desktop, I decided to hook everything up and give it a boot. It worked fine for the first 5 minutes, then after a shower, I came back and got a blue screen. I decided to hit the power button and since then it hasn't been working. It starts up, runs, then asks if I want to continue in "Safe Mode" (which doesn't make it work), "Normal Windows" (doesn't work either) or "Last Current Windows that worked" (doesn't work either). After that, it loads for a second, then restarts.

I have no clue if the movers were rough with my dell and thats why it isn't working. Or if it isn't working because of a software problem.

I decided to take video of it to show you guys exactly what is happening. Hopefully it'll help out in solving this problem. Sorry if the video takes a long time to load, I had to use my digital camera to shoot the video.

Everyone here has been so hopeful before. Thanks in advance for your advice, and thank you all for the wonderful help you have provided me in the past. I have nothing but the fondest respect for you all.

Answer:Software problem maybe hardware problem (vid. of problem included)

Right when you see the Dell logo, start pressing F8 for the Advanced Boot Options menu. When it comes up, select Disable Automatic Restart After System Failure. The loading process should stop on a blue screen error. Make a note of the error number(s) and any file names and messages, then post them here. The blue screen is coming up, but it flashes by too fast to see it. Selecting Disable Automatic Restart will allow you to see the screen and write down the details.

I recently purchased 3 Brother HL 2310 printers. Two were installed immedaitel;y and have been working fine - the third was kept as a reserve. Then one of the other printers finally gave up the ghost and the reserve 2130 installed on that Windows XP PC. Afterone week that 3rd printer started reporting no paper incorrectly and, knowing the operator, today decided to do a swap with one of the other printers. However, this afternoon this replacement started reporting no paper. OK - not a printer problem. I totally uninstalled the driver, did a safe reboot and a normal reboot and then and reinstalled the driver. Within minutes, same problem. OK not a driver problem. So that leaves operator or Windows.
Any thought on what could be a Windows problem, or how I can prove its NOT a Windows problem, because I can't see how it can be an operator problem (although she has wrecked 3 PCs and 3 printers in 3 years).
Not in the office now until Wednesday morning, but it certainly wouldbe helpful if I could do/say something then.

Answer:Is this a windows problem or a driver problem,, or a hardware problem

Sorry - that should be HP 2130

Hi, I'm new here (meaning I just made an account but have been lurking around every time I had computer trouble. This time however, I couldn't find anything that resembles the trouble I'm currently experiencing) and I'm hoping if anyone can help me or tell me if I should just throw my laptop against the wall.

I've had my printer (details and TSG SysInfo below) for over a year now, and never had any trouble with it. A few days ago, I needed to print something but wasn't able to (I can't remember what the error said, it didn't happen again) so I uninstalled the printer and re-installed it by downloading the drivers from the HP website. Pop-up balloon said that it wasn't successfully installed and when I would try to install the driver by going to print management and click on Printers I would get: "An error has occurred on the script of this page. Line: 40. Char: 21. Error: Object doesn't support property or method 'SetPrinterName'. Code: 0. URL: res://C:\Windows\system32\pmcsnap.dll/81". So I clicked on Drivers instead and tried to install the driver there and it said: windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error.

I had no problems with Customer Preview, everything worked, but, I must say that this Release Preview is another story all together. My PC hardware configuration is unchanged since installing Windows 7 when it came on to the market.

1. Doing a clean install did not install a clean installation of Windows 8. It took three attempts. Previous wallpaper, user login avatars, etc. kept showing up in the new supposedly clean install, even when installing with a local account.

2. At shut down I am constantly getting a winlog.exe error stating that I need to insert a disk in to various empty drives. This stops the computer from shutting down. The error message appears 18 times and has to be clicked away every time it appears. The OS shuts down but my computer hardware keeps running [fans, disks, etc.] I fear I may have to get rid of Windows 8 RP before it ruins my entire PC.

3. After the OS has shut down the computer itself will not switch the power of. The computer light showing disk activity is constantly on, even though the OS has been shut down.

I'm going to have to give up on this OS. This release candidate is not working at all well on my setup. Highly peculiar, especially as I had no issues with the Customer Preview and nothing has been changed in my PC hardware setup.

Answer:Release Preview - Nothing but problem after problem after problem.

Hello Rich,

I know you said clean install, but just to check, did you delete the old Windows 8 CP drive/partition so it will be "Unallocated Space", then reinstalled Windows 8 RP?

Did you use a local user account or a Microsoft account? If Microsoft account, then that would be why you got your user picture back since it synced with your Windows Live ID and used the same one.

Answer:LENOVO B590 WIFI Problem - Auto Disconnect + SCREEN FLUCTUATE PROBLEM

hi chetansoni,
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
Regarding your problems, can you try the following:
1. The Wi-Fi auto disconnect problem that you're getting is most likely a driver issue. May I know what version of the Broadcom driver that you're using?
If the WIndows 8 driver from the B590 drivers page doesn't work, try to install this driver (Windows 7 version).
Broadcom BCM43142 Wireless LAN Driver (802.11b/g/n) 
10.6 MB
2. As for the horizontal lines, do you get this when you boot the machine up or tilt the screen to a different angle? If yes, then this is most likely a hardware issue (could be a faulty LCD cable or the LCD itself). To isolate, try connecting an external monitor and observe. 
In this case, I recommend you contact lenovo and report the issue as you may need to send the unit for service.

"An internal System error occured.
Please refer to DXError.log and DirectX.log in your Windows folder to determine the problem."

Now im not sure what exactly what this means... BUT i did get a some type of system error report and i added it to this post, maybe someone can figure out whats going on and could help me determine whats wrong with my PC using that..

Thanks, let me now ASAP!!!

I hope someone can help me. I am using a new computer with Vista and have just installed Adobe Photoshop Elements 7, plus a 2000 Microsoft Home Publishing programme. Both appear to work properly, except the programmes' toolbar fonts are almost unreadable - very small. I have enlarged the actual desktop fonts, but cannot see how to enlarge these programme fonts.

I have another problem with Outlook. I cannot add alias's to my email address. I know how to do it, but when I get to Add email, the page that opens up is too large for the screen and the buttons on the bottom are not visible.

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Yahoo Messenger/Logitech Webcam Problem (was told could be a Vista problem)

Hello Matth3w

Welcome to TSF

I have seen the rest of your requests for help in different forums and not one person has asked you, Have you got Norton? Has your partner got Norton?

If so then you/your partner need to give Norton permission to allow the yahoo web cam facility.

The error message is actually being transmitted from your side telling the other computer that your blocking it because you haven't yet accepted it as a safe device/service

1. You can change these settings in through Windows Firewall

Control Panel\Security\windows Firewall

2. Select Change Settings and select the Exceptions tab.

3. Look down the list to find Yahoo Messenger or relating programs and check the box to the left of it

4. If you cannot find Yahoo Messenger or relating programs select Add Program and search through the Program File to add it.

5. Once checked select Apply and Ok

6. Reboot and try the webcam, you should now be able to use it without any errors. Let me know if its a go

EDIT:I have found a solution, using a DVI to HDMI cable on an amd card will fix this problem, this thread can now die, hopefully someone else will find it if they have this problem.

Basically, i know what the problem is, but not how to rectify it. My tv (Sceptre X235BV-FHD, a rebranded sony bravia)suffers from an EDID mismatch issue or chroma subsampling due to some form of post processing done on my tv, i'm not sure which but either way the results are the same, my colors are inaccurate, text is blurry and it's painful on my already unhealthy eyes, in HDMI at least, vga is normal.

That said, i know how to fix it on nvidia cards, i used the method posted in this tutorial to disable audio over hdmi:
Cropped, off-center display at native 1900x1200 resolution on LG245WP and/or LG246WP monitors with recent NVIDIA drivers

The problem is, i recently upgraded to an amd card, and while i tried to use the pixel format to fix this, the amd drivers do not fix it, not only that but the registry edit to disable audio over hdmi that i used on nvidia cards no longer works(basically, if it sends audio over hdmi it causes my tv to think it's looking at a cable box or game system, not my pc), or the registry entry i need to input is different, or in a different location.
I have heard that i can permanently disable audio over hdmi through editing the EDID with this tutorial:
Force DVI/HDMI resolutions and refresh rates

Can anyone help me please?
A few days ago when i tried to play an audio on my computer it was making nonsense sound, like crackling or something like that (this was just when i was running any file, including movie or music and when it was supposed to have some normal voice inside the speaker).
A few days later, i had a noisy screen (not a voice noise). the screen was like in grids and the grid lines were made of white dots. This happens not only after windows boot, but from the first moment i power the system on. during boot process as well as when in windows window.
After a short time in windows the BLUE SCREEN appears and says nvlddmkm.sys not working properly. well, this is about nvidia VGA driver i guess. BUT if it's a driver problem i shouldn't have it while in boot and when windows has not yet started + what was that sound problem then? are these two problems related to each other?
I've checked the monitor, it works well with other systems, and also this chasis has the same problem when connected to other monitors.
it was a long time i hadn't opened the chases, to try to fix these problem i opened it and found it completely dusty, i thought this may have caused overheating problem and thus the motherboard damage which has led to my "ONBOARD" SOUND and also nVidia VGA defects. i checked the bios hardware check, after about 10 minutes of system turned on, it showed 38 deg.

Hi guys,

About two months ago I bought an Acer TimelineX laptop (the 11.6" version with the i7 core.) Last night it started havong some vicious problems. It will instantly shut down or freeze with the current displayed graphics being very distorted, seemingly at random intervals. I suspect a hardware problem because a few minutes before all this started I noticed the cover protecting the internal components was out of place, so I snapped it back into position.

I tried running some of the pre-boot Windows diagnostics, but they came up clean. The system crashed once during this process and gave me a blue screen of death that said "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT". I ran a diagnostic on the memory and it came up clean as well. I'm thinking I might have broken some critically important piece of hardware. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!


Answer:Problem with Acer TimelineX turning off/freezing, suspect a hardware problem

A few silly ideas that i've tried with my Acer ..
try taking the battery out !..
just run it off the lead..
I've been told its something to do with a hardware issue with the standby mode of the fan or the CPU or some standby/neutral position that some gizmo inside does (have you guessed that I'm no techie ;o)
Try it out, it could be a simple (if not permanent) fix.
Good luck

Hello, so I just got a new ISP yesterday and everything seemed to be working fine, until today. I haven't made any changes (no new updates on security/anti-virus programs). I have wireless internet access (it says it's connected and the diagnose tool can't identify a problem). My main browser is Chrome, but I have Internet Explorer and Firefox. For all three browsers, I can't connect to any websites, except for I have enabled cookies for Chrome, deleted the cache, and have added that program to my firewall's list of accepted programs, and it still won't load pages. However, programs like Spotify, Hulu Desktop, VLC updates, etc that need an internet connection work fine (also, I saved a session in chrome of opened tabs from yesterday and they loaded perfectly fine, but if I try and type them in a new window, they won't load). I have an ethernet cable too, but I don't understand how the programs that need an internet connection work (ex: Spotify radio, Skype,), but my browsers won't.

Good afternoon Tech Immortals,

I am working on a friend's computer.
The hardware setup is the following:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ 2.1GHz

2.5 GB RAM CRUCIAL (Memtest says the following about it: DDR2(64 bit)
373MHz DDR746 CAS: 5-5-15

Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT pci-e

MSI K9N6PGM2-V motherboard

The problems:

Problem1. When the computer is turned on it gives out 2 short beeps (memory error, I presume according to an Internet search). Then it loads GRUMP for Ubuntu 9 or Win XP pro
Problem2. Anything that is graphics intensive makes the computer crash or graphics get glitchy. For example videogames will either make windows crash or crash the game and exit to windows. On Ubuntu while running Compiz the OS freezes. It only crashes or glitches with graphic intensive software.

Solution tried:
For problem1. While loading GRUMP there is an option for memtest. Diagnostics came out fine, no errors.

More background information:
I've inspected the motherboard, the graphics card, ram, everything (looking at it physically for any burns or liquid spills etc)
Everything is roughly 4 months old, bought brand new when purchased.
In the past the user had the same setup except that his old graphics card (GeForce BFG TECH 8800 GT) died on him (will get further details about that in about an hour).
Replaced for graphics card mentioned above. Those problems are occurring.
The card gets warm, but not to an alarming point (I want to say around 60 degrees celcius).... Read more

As for the latest Intel RST software/drivers, I have version on the IAStorDataMgrSvc.exe file, which is the same version as the SATA drivers I found on the Gateway site.

In the Intel RST app, its shows my HD on Internal Port 0; and Internal Port 1 as empty.
I've only just checked this status after my DVD disappeared.
I'm guessing that my DVD is on Port 1 because I get a dialog popping up saying something about Port 1 being empty. Then my DVD drive is gone.

If I reboot, it comes back.
And it may stay for 5 minutes or 5 days (or more), then the DVD just disappears with the Intel RST popup.

I have a Lenovo H520 desktop. I have upgraded to windows 10 and have two problems. Every time I start up, the boot fails with the monitor indicating no signal. I need to hold down the power button to shut down the computer, wait 10 seconds, and start-up a second time which works.  What causes this? Also, I was using a GTX650 OC 1GB graphics card which was fine with win 8.1, but won't work with Win 10. If the card is installed, the monitor indicates no signal, and the computer starts "surging", that is tries to power up for 1 second,which fails,and repeats over and over. I know that a new driver is needed. I have tried to download the new driver from Nvidia, but with the card in,but not fully installed, the driver doesn't find compatible hardware. Windows 10 is rejecting the card for some reason. Can anyone help me?

Alright to star off, I have been spending like a week trying to figure this out, and i finally decided to come here for some help...

First off I have a missing DSOUND.dll problem, i noticed how people say it can be fixed simply by reinstalling DirectX, well when i try to reinstall it, a message like this pops up during it:

"An internal System error occured.
Please refer to DXError.log and DirectX.log in your Windows folder to determine the problem."

Now im not sure what exactly what this means... BUT i did get a some type of system error report and i added it to this post, maybe someone can figure out whats going on and could help me determine whats wrong with my PC using that..

Thanks, let me now ASAP!!!

Answer:DirectX9c Problem (missing DSOUND.dll problem/driectX9c wont download)

Have you done a Search for DSOUND.dll ?

There should be copies in at least 2 other places.

If so, copy and paste one to the C:\Windows\System32 folder.

On my computer, for about a little bit over a week now, I've been getting the blue screen that automatically restarts the computer. The blue screen text goes by so fast I can't even read it. I found out online that it was the SmitFraud, so I checked out the guide and downloaded the SmitFraudFix.exe. When I ran it in safe mode, it started working, but then it disappeared and all of my icons and everything on safe mode disappeared. The safe mode screen became a black screen with the words safe mode in the four corners, and I think there was the computer type or something on the top center of the screen. I couldn't run the fix properly in safe mode because after I tried running the fix, safe mode is not useable anymore.
What I tried to do was let my malwarebytes and my anti virus try to detect it, but they couldn't find it. I was thinking of system restoring my computer back 2 weeks, but I also couldn't find the restore points( as there weren't any). What can I do to get rid of the problem? It's really annoying.

Answer:Smit Fraud/Blue Screen of Death problem and safe mode startup problem

Basically, I have a HP Pavilion laptop, only 4 months old, pretty good specs, running on windows vista. At first, it was working like a dream, and I didnt believe what I was hearing about problems with vista. However, recently, I have noticed that anything I plug in2 any of the usb drives (be it ipod, external hard drive, or even a brand new printer) isnt installing. They are recognised alright, but instead of installing automatically, I am prompted for a disc, and even for things which I do have the disc (eg printer), it still does not work. Things that were used before this problem cropped up, eg another ipod, another printer, a mouse, are working fine. I have spoken to HP, Microsoft, the printer manufacturers, tech guys, everyone, and the best advice I got was to backup my data and wipe everything and start again. But seeing as I can't use an external hard drive, this could prove tedious and frustrating. I would be eternally gr8ful to any1 who could offer me anything to help me out of this bind!


Answer:Problem with USB slots (possible plug & play error, probably vista problem)

Have you tried the Windows Vista USB Cumulative Upate?

I'm not sure if its a driver, graphics card, or BIOS problem, so sorry if this is the wrong section

Anyways, my problem is with my graphic display. My graphics seem to be like cut up in sections with white or red lines through them, but in some places, they're perfectly fine. Here I'll show you some pictures:

As you can see, the graphics are fine on the desktop, but weird in the folder view of the desktop.

Here, you can see the the graphic problem is in Internet Explorer, but in firefox, it is perfectly fine.

It also happens in games, for example in World of Warcraft

If you look behind the log in screen, you can see the lines... and if you have played WoW before you know that those lines aren't suppost to be there.

I don't know what the problem is. I've tried changing my screen resolution, and everything that has come to mind.

If anyone knows whats wrong or have any solutions, please help. This has been going on for a few months now but I didn't have time to fix it.

Computer stats:
WindowsXP Media Center Edition
Service Pack 3
Graphics Card= ATI Radeon X600

My computer is a Dell XPS

Recently i got problem with my computer

After I shut down my entire computer the next time when i try to reopen it

It doesn't come out, the Power light is on, monitor power light also on but the booting(the red light) which indicates the computer is running isn't working anymore i check the every possible cable like the Power Supply, HDD , Video Card, Monitor, every things works fine, but my computer doesn't even booting.

So I don't really Know what the problem is right now

can someone tell me which part should i fix it.

thank you

Answer:PC Problem dunno what problem it is not Video Card, Not Power Supply, Not HDD, Not MB

Open the PC, then switch it on. Check that all fans (in the powersupply, on the CPU, perhaps also on the graphics card and the motherboard) are running.
If not, tell us which one is not working.
Most likely your powersupply no longer works. Give us the manufacturer's name and model, please.

Hi Guys I have just installed a second hard drive to my system, and upon reboot a black screen appears advising “ no boot device detected” In the BIOS the boot order has changed to (1) Floppy. (2) Lan, (3) Lan, (4) Lan. In the CMOS splash screen upon start-up no drives are recognised, displaying NONE for all. My system is a Dell Dimension 2350 P.4 running XP sp3. 1GB RAM. In this installation setup I have an 80GB HDD set to Master jumper setting and a 20GB HDD ( 2nd HDD) set to Slave.
Prior to the installation of the 2nd HDD the 80GB booted OK, and the BIOS settings were (1) Floppy (2) Hard Disc (3) CD ROM (4) Lan.
One thing I should mention this system has just come back from a computer shop where I had XP sp3 installed due to a mishap on the original Hdd which destroyed the Operating system. The XP sp3 system which came back from the shop had Acronis True Image installed on it? I was going to clone the new system to my 20 GB using my own Acronis software, as a backup, because I would not have a disc to recover to if anything went wrong in the future. Anyone got any ideas on this puzzle, or diagnostic ability. All help welcomed.

Answer:Solved: Technical Problem 2nd hard drive installation problem

Sounds like either the drivers are jumpered or cabled wrong or that booting from a HDD has been disbaled in the BIOS. If you disconnect the second drive does the system boot?

Hi I recently made a mistake and I did a full HP system restore and lost alot of my programs and have had to reinstall them. Some programs are there still but just seem messed up somewhat, like my Cute Html editor program.

Suddenly, where there used to be the tabs you clicked on that would auto-arrange my .htm files in the navigation pane, arent there anymore. Im a web designer so this is crucial for me, as I use this program every day. But I used Cute Html version 2.3 and there isnt any support anymore for that.

Does anyone have a clue how I can get those tabs back on there?

Also, there isnt any file extension on the .jpg or .gif files or the .htm files. They used to be there. Also what used to be .jpg files is now .jpeg and Im having to change them on all my html pages.

Any idea on how to fix these problems?

Hi Lenovo For the past 3 days i have been doing some research and observations in order to try to make sense of this wifi issue and maybe someone will come up with a solution. Lets start First of all i assume that when this laptop was being developed some form of testing was done before it was released, so the wifi must have worked well within lenovo offices. Also not everyone is having this issue - some people claim no problems at all, whilst others whathever they try they can't seem to be able to fix it.  Some even send their laptop for repair, other even had it replaced, yet the problem still persisted. So the problem seems to be related to one factor - the router people are using. Some people have a router that works well with this laptop, and so have no issue. Other have a router that is "not compatible" with the wifi card and so no matter how many lenovo yoga 13 machines they have it will still not work. I also noticed in my situation that when i use my android phone or tablet as wifi hotspot i have no issues, yet when i use my home router its a nightmare.Also i noticed that chaging the way how the laptop connects to the router can make a difference; 1, At first i used a fixed IP with alternate configuration - this was horrible (continous disconnection, routers wifi crashing, takes ages to connect)2, Then i used fixed ip in the general configuration - ths was better, yet still problems (yet disconnections were less, yet ...

Device Manager4.) open properties of WiFi device (under network adapter)5.) Go to Advance6.) there is an option to use use either 20_40w or 20w under one of the energy/power related options in this list.(This is part I can't remember off the top of my head) - Turn to 20w instead of the variable rate.6.) Change the Bandwith option from 20_40w to 20w.5.) OK out till your at your desktop (might require Reboot, I dont remember)  That is how I kept my WiFi from destroying my Wireless networking in my house.  I was rebooting my WiFi network hourly before.

Hoping somebody can help with this problem which despite trawling through these very helpful forums & tutorials, I have been unable to resolve. I have tried to include all the information possible although I am relatively new to this field so my terminology is probably not completely accurate. If any further information would be useful I would be glad to post it.

My unmodified msi u130 netbook is about 18 months old and has been working perfectly.
Yesterday when performing a standard operation online (uploading an image to a facebook event) the screen went black and the laptop instantly powered down. This is the first time the system has spontaneously powered itself down.
I restarted the system, which loaded as normal, I managed to get back online (although with less programs running) and next time I tried to upload the same image again on the same website this time the screen went white and the same instant power down occurred. I also experienced an unusual (hot or burning) smell coming from the netbook. Having replaced my screen a few weeks earlier I opened up the case to have a look to see if anything inside appeared burnt out but was unable to see any visible difference, nor any obvious hardware issue.

Since reassembling, which I am confident I did correctly (as I am about the previous screen installation) upon turning the computer on I get the usual pre-boot manufacturers screen (black with msi logo, with options to run setup, boot menu, recovery menu). Win... Read more

Hi, I'm in need of figuring out if my laptop was infected by a trojan, the operating system went kapoot and i need to reinstall it, or if its hardware failure. I used it last night and my AVG caught a "small trojan horse" called cryptbase.dll and after removing it i believe is where it began. My computer restarted and ended up starting up with the acer splash with me able to click f2 for setup. But f8 doesn't work and causes a long beeping noise if i leave it alone it goes to a black screen with a underscore blinking at the top left. i've done some research but, im unsure which route to take without taking some advice for my own laptop. My laptop is a Acer Aspire 5741-3541, Windows 7,intel core i5-450 processor, 4 GB DDR memory, 500 GB HDD. if you need more information please ask because im unsure with what is needed to fix the problem. The solutions i've heard is reinstalling windows 7, or it might be a HDD problem. Thank you.

When I set the power option on my pc to have the monitor turn off after so many minutes it does not work. What I mean is that the monitor goes black for one second then comes back on. This problem just started a few days ago. I posted a thread on another forum and someone suggested I run msconfig and inspect the startup tab to see if there was something in there that might be causing the problem. I saw three things in there that I had uninstalled ... nero, incd, and sagetv. I cleared the checkboxes for those three then clicked okay. That is when things started going really bad. I immediately got an error message saying that I may need administrator privelages to make the changes. I am the admin on this computer, I have been since I installed XP. When I clicked okay on that box I was prompted to restart the computer which I did. When it rebooted I then got a message that said major hardware changes had taken place since the last time XP was started and that I had to reactivate XP. No hardware changes were made at all so this totally baffles me. I still can't make changes in msconfig and I am being reminded about every 5 minutes that I need to reactivate XP. I know this was a long winded post but I wanted to be sure and get as much info in there as I could. If you have any suggestions or questions I would love to hear them.

My first problem is that, apparently, you cannot make the screen brighter on some lenovo laptops with windows 8. The Brightness- button is working, but once you make the screen dimmer, you cannot make it bright again using the brightness settings. I found out however that you can revert by rolling back some drivers. It worked every time when my screen would get dimmer for whatever reason. Yet, yesterday, it happened again and I forgot what to do about it and I ended up uninstaling the Intel Graphics 4000 driver from my computer by mistake. When I tried reinstalling it, it would display the following message:
"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"
I thought that I could undo all of this adventure of mine by using the system restore and revert back long before this all started. However, every time I tried to use system restore it wouldn't work, due to "error 0x80070005", recommending that I turn off my antivirus in order for the system restore to be able to access a certain file. I went as far as uninstalling anything reminescent of an antivirus from my computer and disabling windows defender. However, it is still not working, displaying the same error.

So, here is what I need help with:
Solving the error code 31 of my display adapte driver.
Solving the error 0x80070005 of the system restore

Any of these are appreciated. Thank you.

Answer:Display adapter problem AND windows system restore problem

If that Lenovo has the intel driver download on the Lenovo site - download it from there NOT the latest from Intel
Alternatively if Lenovo does not have it for your laptop try this one
checking that I have selected the correct one for your processor

Try that and when I return at 1800 hrs - I am in the UK I will come back to you to attempt to solve the other issues
Please post the full model of the Lenovo

Answer:Lenovo R61i Black Screen Problem (nVidia GPU problem)

there is not much you can do, if you want to keep the laptop:1. Get post warranty warranty (1 year depot).2. Get the parts yourself and fix it.3. Let the depot fix the machine and quote you for labour and parts.Option 1 is the cheapest.

1. When I turn on my Computer, about 75% of the time, it gets to a certain state, then resets itself, resulting in a blue screen appearing for about a second with a count down at the bottom, "dumping..."

2. With some games, when I choose "Exit" from the in-game menu, the game closes down (as it should) but I get a window saying that, basically, it stopped working, and it has 3 options, 2 of which are "Cancel Program" (or something like that) and "Debug"

Anyway, I can't do anything with this window, I need to use CTRL+ALT+DEL and use the Task Manager to shut it down (The window, not the game itself, the game closes when I close the window) Again, any ideas?

Hi and welcome to TSF

It seems to me that we are having BSoD errors here. First I would like you to start up in Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key. Then use the arrow keys to choose Safe Mode and then Choose your OS. Boot up into your computer and click Start. Right click My Computer and hit Properties. Then in System Properties click the Advanced Tab. Under Startup and Recovery click Settings. Under System Failure in the new box decheck the box that says, "Automatically Restart." Click Ok and then Ok again. Then I would like you to restart your computer and try to get the Blue Screen again. When you do get the Blue Screen tell me exactly what the text says.

I'm having a problem installing Quickbooks Pro 2009 on Window XP pro

When I launch the installer from the CD I get this screen:

The text is read-only -- looks like options for install method? Previous version of QB (2006 PRO) did not include such a screen.

Anyway - when I click OK the window disappears and nothing happens - no activity from the CD drive -- no further messages from QB

Dell U2711 27" Monitor
Win 7 Pro

I can move icons/windows up, right, left perfectly smoothly - HOWEVER

When I try to move them down, OR try to grab a scroll bar with the mouse and move it down, OR try the resize a window (either by grabbing the top or btm of the window) in a downward motion it will move between a few mm to a few cm then stop - and I have to regrab it with the mouse .... it can take a dozen attemtps to move a window or an icon to the bottom of the screen.

In fact moving sideways with a downward motion causes the same problem.

Any movement to the right, left or up moves totally smoothly......

Any suggestions? It's doing my head in !!

(NB. All motherboard, GPU, windows files are fully up to date.)

Answer:Moving windows/icons down problem!! Move right/left/up - no problem

Doh - just been for a walk and it suddenly dawned on me that I was having similar problems with my old computer (although not the the same extent).

The only common denominator was the mouse.

Sure enough, plugged in an old mouse - and all working fine!!

Sorry guys - but if nothing else a lesson in the need to sometimes go back to basics!!

Hi,I start up my computer and for some reason the wireless connection and other programs seem to take a little longer than the sound, antivirus and other programs.  This causes the Windows Explore not wanting to start.Is this just XP being slow? Will this improve if I upgrade to Windows 7? Is this a hardware flaw?Laptop Specifications:Hard Drive: 160GB 7,200 RPMRAM: 2GB (1.75) Upgrading soon to 3GBMain processor: AMD Athlon X2 2.2GHz Dual coreBrought in Jan 1Any other information you may need please contact me.

Answer:Network Connection Hardware problem? or Windows XP slowness problem?

No, the problem has something to do with you current software installation. From the information given in your post, it sounds like a program is trying to get on the internet and is slowing down the system from its start up chores. Did you recently do something new with your PC? Maybe a large download? P2P files sharing can really slow down you machine when it starts. Do you do that?

Hello guys,

For some reason my computer have some problem(s) that I don't know where it come from and how to solve it.
I got this problem for 3 days and I have tried to fix it but to no avail and i have pretty much lost hope, because I have some important documents for school etc. and videos, pictures that i dont want to lose it and I have a presentation over 3 weeks.....and I am regretting not having made a backup..>.<

Here are the issues:

When I try to log in on my computer I get a message that says:
"The group policy client service failed the logon, Access denied."
Then it log off and returned to the profile selection screen.

After that I tried to log in via "Safe mode" and it work without getting the message:
"The group policy client service failed the logon, Access denied."

But here comes my next problem. (Those problems is only on safe mode since I cant log in normally):

When I log in via Safe mode, my desktop icons are gone and my background is black. Also some of my programs in my startmenu are gone.

On my "computer" (windows+E or via the startmenu) some folders on the left panel are gone. When i right click and click on " show all folders" nothing happen.

See screenshot/link: ( I hope the screenshot is big enough...)

1. I have disabled sounds for windows alerts and for the modem itself and still I hear the modem dialing and trying to connect through my speaker system. Any ideas on how to disable this or what I might be missing?

2. I got a new pc and needed to add a pionner dvd burner and it is physically not possible to make them go together properly. I end up having a wide space opening cause I got to put the drive all the way back to screw it down. Also the case's face is round while as far as I know all these drives are flat on their face ends. Any clues here?

Answer:Speaker/Modem Sound problem and Case/Burner don't fit problem

Have you muted it in volume controls and control panel\modem properties

The fronts of drives are interchangeable they can be unclipped,from what you have described the front of the old drive is round to fit the case,you need to unclip it and clip it to the new drive

i recently recovered from and deleted from my computer the 'Windows Police Pro' virus, using Spyware Doctor and manually deleting all the files. Except now when i go to start->run->cmd it says "c:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe Application not found" but it is in the right place and it will run with right click> administrator.
Most other files/apps etc will bring up the 'Open With - choose the program you want to use to open this file' dialog too, unless i am able to right click > run as administrator. The reccomended program is usually internet explorer, and the "always use this program to open..." check box is greyed out.
I think it might possibly be something in regedit, but can't be sure
