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: Big Big Urgent Urgent Urgent Help Needed...plssssss

What broke? Can you provide pics? But really, the chance of data loss should be low if you just leave it alone and fix it when you are given instructions.

Hey Guys and Gurus, Can anybody tell 800 MHz DDR2 works on 3000 y410 or not? My config is below:Core2Duo 1.;86 GHz1GB DDR2 533/667 MHz (Which one I? not sure...!!) DRAM with Dual Channel160 GB SATA HDDIntel 965 Series M/B............................................................................................................ Recently I have tried with a 800 MHz 2GB DDR2 along with my existing 1GB, it:a. Shows well of 3 GB in the BIOSb. Couldn see the BUS Speed as there is no option for that in the Phoniex BIOSc. Problem arises with my existing Windows 7 that was running well before I installed the new 2GB but now it JUST stopped working....Simply it boots up but shows various error masseges which are related to memory locations. The reseaons I thought over is maybe......    1.  Windows 7, onced installed issues all instructions to the memory locations for what it boots up faster than Windows VIsta literally...    2. As my Windows 7 was installed with 1GB RAM installed in the system, thus new config or changes in the memory locations are creating problems to the OS In this condition I? totally helpless.... Seeking help and suggestions and technical informations regarding this RAM issue......It? really URGENT...........................................PLZ HELP ME OUT..................................................... NOTE : Advanced Thnx to the suggestions and comments.......

Answer:URGENT !!! 800 MHz DDR2 2GB Works on 3000 Y410???? URGENT !!! Please help......

You need to test your new memory setup.While the combo of 800 memory and slower memory ispossible, not all combinations work correctly. Search web for memtest86 or memtest86+ You will need to make a bootable cd, or usb stick and boot from that.Let memtest run for a couple of passes at least, unlesserrors show up. Then you know the chips will not work together.

The problem occurred when I made a standard user account and through that i redirected to the admin profile under c:/Users/xxxx and i right clicked the profile>properties>security> and i removed the standard account access to that admin folder and got some "Access denied error". After i logged off and login into the admin account, i got the error "settings.ini is being used by another process" from windows sidebar and windows sidebar was not working. After realizing that, i login with the standard account and wasn't having that problem........then i went to system restore and noticed "all my system restore points are gone". I got pissed and boot into safe mode and still the same thing, there was no system restore. I was able to get rid of the settings.ini problem by disabling UAC.

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum, but I have a very pressing issue with my windows 7 laptop. It is a HP DV7 Entertainment PC. It is a little more than three years old (i think).

Anyway. So here's the issue:

Recently, I was going through my Registry on my personal account. On my computer I have two different accounts. One for me, which has admin privileges, while the other is a standard account, that I let my family use.

When I was in my registry, I noticed that the username for my account under Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SAM\SAM\Domains\Account\Users\Names was different from the one on my directory. The name shown when I log into Windows is my first name, however the directory name (the same one for the registry) is a nickname of mine.

So what I wanted to do was to make name under the registry (and hopefully the one under the directory the same), so I renamed the Key Name to the name shown when I log on.

Afterwards, I logged off my computer, and when I got to the Logon Screen, my account, the one with admin privileges, was not there. Only the second account, the standard.

I have longed on to the standard account, and tried to rename the registry key back to the original name, however, I don't have admin privileges, and I am unable to do so.

Normally, I would have just restored my registry to an earlier time, using a registry backup from a couple days ago, however, those we all saved under the documents of my admin account, which I can not access thro... Read more

Its sort of a long post, so i'm going to just jump right in.

I recently upgraded my hard drive to a Western Digital Cavier SE 160 G. I had windows on another HD but thought it would go smoothly, so just disgarded it. The HD was a RMA so it didn't come with a boot disc like the previous one, but I lost the origanal. I went to western digitals site and downloaded the files that are apperently on the floppy and made a floppy. When I booted off the windows XP OEM disc everything went fine untill it ask if I had any raid drivers or anything to install, press 's', so I do. After I hit 's' is says that it cant find file txtsetup.oem. To make a long story short I went to MSI, motherboard, and downloaded some files that it apperently needed for drivers, but the problem is both manufactures files cant fit in the same floppy, problem. So I mix and match files on the floppy to satisfy setup so it can find all the files. So, when i'm at the same instal of man. drivers I press 's' and I choose the Windows XP controller and hit 'enter'. Then it goes back to the same 'to install drivers page' saying that windows will load the following ***, to continue hit enter, i do. Then it starts to load files and finally says 'starting windows' then windows displayes that it cant find any hard discs and setup cannot continue, press F3 to exit....WTF is happening here, and WTF can I do to get past this, shouldnt you partitio...

Movie maker cannot save the movie to the specific location. Verify That the original source files used in your movie are still available, that the saving location is still available, and that there is enough free space available, and then try again.

I haven't moved the files that i imported into movie maker. I have enough space and the location is available. so the only thing left that could be wrong is the source files. how can i get the movie maker to recognized the files.

Hi Guys,

This is quite a long story, So let me get straight to the point.

On my Dell Optiplex 360 Computer (Windows 7-Ultimate) I partitioned the hard drive to make space for another windows installation. I then installed Windows Vista Ultimate on it.

All of that went successfully but after a while it became useless for me and my computer.
I then uninstalled Window Vista and deleted the partition so i would have one partition on my hard drive (Windows 7).

So then every time i started up the PC it would load boot manager and it would ask me if i would like to boot to Windows Vista or Windows 7. I had deleted Windows Vista from my computer so i thought it shouldn't be there.

Then, i found this program that deletes the boot option (As in it deletes Windows Vista off from the boot manager). So then i went ahead and deleted Windows Vista from the boot list. After, i just tested to see it would work, So i restarted my computer and it loaded the boot manager again.

And the problem is that i only have Windows Vista as an option instead of Windows 7 !
I tried to do everything to fix this but it never worked, and when i try to boot to Windows Vista it says that the boot file is missing (Thats because i deleted Windows Vista!!).

So then i put my Window 7 Install Disk in the CD drive and the CD Drive was making a loud buzzing noise. I opened the case and it was literally broken.

So all i need to know is how i can get my option to boot to Windows 7 on my Boot Manager !!?

If Windows 7 is still there you need to make sure it's the Active partition and if it is do the 3 separate startup repairs discussed in this tutorial to recreate the "System" boot files (back) to Windows 7.

It is a trojan rather than a virus. The file gets stored on C:\ root as an .exe called Sys<something>.exe. Before deleting it, disable System Restore to clear that out and then delete that file, and then run a full scan of HD.

Hi, I'm running Vista home premium 64 bit with the latest SP.

I just installed an old game (Sniper Elite) and after installation it asked for a reboot. I did this and got the message that windows couldn't start, this could be down to a change recently made etc etc.

It then said to fix it

2- select language and click next
3- Choose repair my computer

I did this but when I clicked repair my computer it didn't show any OS in the box to repair! It just says "If you did not see your OS in the list, click load drivers to load drivers for your hard disk"

Ok, after having to turn off the computer improperly, I got the error message about the Windows\System32\Config\System file missing or corrupt.
Apparently this happens quite commonly and isn't that hard to fix.

So I put in the xp disk, attempting to use the repair feature.
No repair feature was there, I must have an OEM version or something, but I could use the recovery console.

I follow the Microsoft tech guide to fixing the problem, after doing a chkdsk which unsurprisingly found an error.

The MS guide basically had me delete the corrupt files, and then restart the computer, and after that was done I was supposed to copy the new files from another folder into the system to replace the corrupt ones.

This is where the problem lies...
once the corrupt files were deleted, the recovery console no longer lets me acces it without an administrators password.
Ok, no big deal, I try leaving the pass blank, and then every password which I would have ever used when I installed windows, to no avail.
I have heard that because the system files are corrupt, that the file storing the password could also be corrupt, so the password is never valid.

I go back to the MS help thing and look for a way to get past the password...it says that by using the bootable floppy deal with the 6 floopy disks I can get into recovery console.

Well I can't picture exactly what is going on there. I have never had a problem with formatting using the XP CD, maybe you selected a wrong option somewehre, hard to say, as far as I know that's pretty independant of what is actually on the hard drive(s) that are in the computer....

Anyhow you could try making a bootdisk win98 and putting format.com and fdisk on it and just doing it that way. Windows XP shoud automatically be able to convert it durring install if you want NTFS.

If your not sure how to make a bootdisk with win98 this is what you do...

1. Create the bootable disk:
Put a floppy disk in your drive. Go to windows explorer->right click on your floppy drive (a:\) -> select format->select the check box that says "system files"->click format->click yes.

2. Add format.com and fdisk on it
Click start->find ->select c:\ ->type in the file you need->click search
(copy it to the floppy):
When you find the file you need, click copy and then paste it onto your floppy disk.

Try booting to "Enable VGA mode" from the Windows Advanced Options menu.  From there reset display properties to desired values and reboot to "Normal" mode.Use the <F8> function key during system startup to access the Windows Advanced Options Menu.  Tap the <F8> key once or twice per second as you startup the computer (or immediately after POST completes and screen flashes black prior to displaying Windows XP logo with its processing bar display).From the Windows Advanced Options menu, use the up/down arrow keys to select "Enable VGA mode" and press <Enter> key.

im having major problems with my dell inspiron 1545 laptop. ill try be a s breif but as descriptive as needed. i recently carried out a full dell system restore due to the computer freezing. once the restore had been completed the laptop then played up ont the start up with a blue screen carrying out a system dump. once this had finished the laptop operated asif it was brand new?

It then downloaded some automatic updates when connected to the internet and i downloaded vlc media player and everything seemed fine. i then shut down the laptop once more.

on start up the laptop will not proceed past the windows error recovery page!!??!! no matter what option i choose, in any of the menus either by hitting F2 F12 or F5. non of the repair tools work or anything??

the laptop just processes the choice and temporarily reboots and brings me straight back to the windows error recover page.

So i dont know whats going on? is my hard drive still ok? its still saying i have windows 7 but wont load it!

do i need a recovery disk? re install windows?

im not sure, hopefully someone out the might have some sort of idea or advice that i can take to getting it sorted.

any suggestions are welcome

Kind regards

Brett

Answer:Urgent help needed!!!!

Welcome Bret,
Not much that I can do but take an educated guess. You had a problem which resulted in you making a restore. This resulted in a blue screen and the problem continued. It seems to be a hardware problem with the computer. It can be the hard drive; as well as many other problems.
Do you hear any beeps when you try to boot? Try with speakers on.

Question: Urgent Help Needed

Well today I just installed a fresh copy of Windows XP because I had been using 64-bit and the evaluation copy ran out. This meant that my computer was shutting down about every hour or so, forcing me to either purchase 64-bit or 32-bit. I chose 32 bit and installed it and everything. So after the installation and everything, nothing seems to be working right. My soundcard isnt working properly, when I try to play music it says "There is an error with your sound device" or something like that. The internet also isnt working. The only object on the desktop is the trash can...this never happened on my previous computer when I would re-install windows. It might have been because it was just a restore disk and I guess it included everything I needed to have my computer get up and running on that disk. Well I need some help because I am totally lost on what to do now. I can get drivers and whatnot on this computer and transfer them to my other one, but would that help my soundcard or anything work? What about the internet? What do I have to do to get that up and running? Thanks for the help and sorry if this was long, but I need your help.

Answer:Urgent Help Needed

ok, so to start, you need to reconfigure the desktop to be more like win2k. To do this, right click the start bar, and select properties. Then select classic start menu. This will get you setup for now.
Then you need to get drivers. The problem you are having is that you don't have the needed/correct drivers for your machine. Start by listing out the hardare you have installed, and we can post links, or you can find it your self...

hi guys, i really need help. I cant find the stereo mix in my pc

I previously used win xp (installed the drivers from the cd) and had the stereo mix.
now, I'm using windows 7 64 Bit and I didn't install anything from the CD because i thought it's already supported.

Now I can't find my stereo mix. I checked the disconnected and disabled devices, still can't find anything

I'm using ASUS PK5PL-AM motherboard.
Help please

I can listen to music and stuff, but I can't use my microphone

PS: i was trying to install the drivers in my win 7, unfortunately my cd doesn't support win 7 OS, and i can't find any update for the drivers..

Answer:Urgent help needed please! :(

The lack of the Stereo Mix is a major complaint of many. It's the driver that is usually the issue. Check with the sound chip vendor for a Win 7 driver. e.g. if it's RealTek then check with RealTek, if it's Sigmatel check with IDT (SigmaTel is now IDT). But, ultimately you may have to install a Win 7 sound card that does have the feature you want, several on the Dell forum that have upgraded old XP systems to Win 7, and there are no updated drivers, have had to do that.

This evening i received an email from an unknown source which had an attatchment (.pif). I stupidly opened it. I subsequently ran a virus check using Housecall's online virus scan and it has shwon that there is a worm on my system which is known as 'FIZZER A'. Housecall says it in uncleanable. If anybody can help with this situation i would really appreciate it, i'm terrified to turn my comp of incase it wipes the hard drive or something. Please help :(((

Answer:URGENT HELP NEEDED!

The worm spreads via e-mail and includes its own SMTP engine to bypass any security your e-mail client may have. Fizzer also spreads via Kazaa, a popular file-sharing application. The worm establishes its own accounts on Internet Relay Chat (IRC) and AOL Instant Messenger, in order to await further instructions from the virus author. Fizzer attempts to disable any antivirus program running at the time of infection. Systems infected with Fizzer could be used in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on other computers. Fizzer includes a keystroke-logging Trojan horse, which can be used to steal passwords words and credit card information. Because Fizzer spreads via e-mail and Kazaa, contains a keystroke-logging Trojan horse, and could be used in a DDoS attack, this worm rates a 7 on the ZDNet Virus Meter. How it worksFizzer arrives as e-mail with several possible subject lines and body texts. The From: address can be forged and therefore should not be trusted. Fizzer's attached files contain one of the following extensions: .com, .exe, .pif and .scr. If a user opens the attached file or otherwise activates the worm, three files are added to the Windows directory:Most antivirus software companies have updated their signature files to include this worm. This will stop the infection upon contact and in some cases will remove an active infection from your system. For more information, see Central Command, F-Secure, McAfee, MessageLabs, Sophos, Symantec, or Trend Micro.

Just an ISO file on the USB is not going to let you boot from it. You have to make a bootable USB first. You have to use something like Rufus: Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way to do that.

I recently updated my BIOS but there were no errrors. Also, you may know if you've been following my threads that my CPU was overheating not that long ago could my BIOS have dropped the speed to 1.2ghz to 'cool' the PC down? My PSU is also not supplying enough power and so ordered a new one, which should arrive tommorow.

Will adding my new PSU set the CPU clock back to 2080ghz, god i hope so.

C'mon, need your help desperately.

Answer:Urgent Help Needed

Hello,

It seems that your FSB has been lowered.... It should be 12.5 x 166 for an AMD Athlon XP 2800+.

Post a screenshot or a report of the Motherboard page to show the Front Side Bus Properties and Memory Bus Properties.

Perhaps your BIOS hasn't detected your CPU correctly. Try resetting your BIOS, or see if you can correct the FSB in BIOS.

Oh and...how many watts is your current PSU? If it's 400W that is more, than enough...

I have downloaded the W10 ISO file onto a USB stick, in preparation for carrying out a clean install. I have then rebooted my pc and pressed F12 and chose the USB stick as the boot up method.

However, when I have done this I am still getting a black screen with a blinking curser in the top left hand corner. It would seem that I am still doing something wrong, can someone point me in the right driection please.

Answer:More urgent help needed please

Just an ISO file on the USB is not going to let you boot from it. You have to make a bootable USB first. You have to use something like Rufus: Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way to do that.
If your MB doesn't have UEFI bios this one: Windows USB/DVD Download Tool - Microsoft Store is easier to use.

Question: Urgent fix needed

Im a landlord, i have years of Books on my CPU. never been online with it ever. Completely isolated. After I finished monthly books it suddenly went off. Shut down without shut down.... Repowered nothing, checked power strip, nothing...

Immediately grabbed it and took to repair shop. Its a very important item, has ALL data from years back... plus its October and thats 9 months of this year entered... Backed up YES.... ON the same drive... LOL Dont laugh or scold me yet....

Repair shop says the fan stopped, causing the overheating of the motherboard and the Drive will not SPIN..... He can not retrieve any data....

WHAT is your suggestion and best options for this scenario.... Im all ears.

Hundreds or thousands of hours of data at risk.... I asked about removing the platter and reinserting into another drive.. said cant b done..

Thanks

Steve
 

Answer:Urgent fix needed

My initial thought is that would have to be one heck of an overheating to kill the HD along with the more vulnerable motherboard components. Is the shop reliable?

Have you tried the HD to another computer? That would be the simplest thing to confirm that it doesn't actually spin up. It just seems like too much of a coincidence that the HD has failed along with the motherboard. If you can wait for mail order something like this will make the connection externally but internal is not difficult.

If the HD really doesn't spin up at all, I don't have any suggestions. Professional data retrieval is extremely expensive ~$1000.

Two problems:

1. Wireless router - I temporarily disabled the wireless ability on my router two weeks ago by accident, so immediately tried to correct it but the family computer wouldn't turn on stupid dell.. I used an ethernet cable to connect to the router and turned wireless back on. I hadn't used the wireless since then as I went on holiday a couple of hours after. Low and behold I get back and wireless isn't working, I have tried restarting the router manually, restarting the router through the control console, reconfiguring the router from factory settings. Wireless just won't work. The router is a belkin G+ router

2. My main desktop now has an exceptionally long boot time it loads up into the bios start screen and then seems to freeze and you can hear it power down ,then 5 minutes later it will continue with boot. It gets frozen between the boot screen and xp screen and after that it is perfectly fine.

Hi there,

I'm trying to fix my fathers computer which is a Dell Desktop running on Windows XP using window eyes screen reader. The problem started when we couldn't start the computer at all we kept getting the NTLDR error. I followed the steps to fix that, (copied it from the disk) but then after that we keep getting the hal.dll error. Before the first error started, I had used comodo system cleaner on the computer as it had become very slow and kept crashing. I also used the delete duplicate files. Finally on the same day he had received an email from avast saying one of the messages he had received contained a very suspicious extension. We deleted that email without opening it.

I've tried the fixboot, options, I've run the chkdsk which found no problems but when I run the bootcfg/rebuild, it finds no windows installation and basically I can't get any further than that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as my father is blind and re-installing XP would not be ideal as he knows his way around the files currently on there and also he has various programs for the blind downloaded and installed which would be very difficult to replace.

thanks Yazd

Well, last night I was faffing around with the user accounts, and I deleted a couple. I don't know if this is relevant or not to the problem, but here it is;

I rebooted my computer this morning afer I made changes to the start up, I know it wasn't anything to do with anything I did in there, as I have done that many many many times before.

Before it gave me the logon screen a message box popped up saying that I could not be logged on as my password and domain or something were incorrect. So I clicked ok and it took me to the normal logon screen. There is normally an account for my wife, my sister in law and before I removed them, my two lodgers. The difference was in this that there was only a user account for Administrator. So I tried to log on, but whenever I put in a password I thought it was, it wasn't.

So I tried logging on without a password, and it says I cannot access my account due to account restrictions
Is there a way to fix this?

I know this subject has been posted on here before, but no one has given sufficient answers, so if anyone knows and wants to share the solution, please help me!

Question: Urgent Help Needed

Hi Guys, I hope to God that you's can help.

Heres the story, my computer out of the blue has just stopped loading. I will describe what is happening:
I will turn on the computer and it will load normally past all the BIOS stuff - then it will begin a 'chkdsk c:' saying that it needs to check this 'NTFS' file for consistancy.
It is always succesful with this check and then moves onto the the classic windows xp loading screen. That works fine then, BANG, it stops loading.... I don't think it is freezing as I can still move the mouse.
If I leave it for long enough it will come up with a diologue box saying something along the lines of 'Windows needs to be activated'. And this does not allow me to get past this blue laoding screen.
I then restart the comp, and it just goes through the same process.
Other info:
I CANNOT access SAFE MODE! It takes me to a log in menu saying my name, Phil and Administrator and if I click any of them I encounter this message 'Windows needs to be activated'.
I checked my BIOS page and posted the info on another forum (which wasn't too helpful if I do say so myself) and they said nothing with out of the ordinary with temperature etc.
If this helps, I did the day before these problems started when I turned on my comp it said there was no keyboard plugged in, this was a USB keyboard so I just swapped it for a old keyboard which wored a treat.

OK I had a major Vista meltdown today.

Diskeeper Pro damaged my Vista install, causing my PC to BSOD cycle on startup.

After my initial panic I sat down and thought things through..

I ran the repair routine from my Vista Install CD, this got me as far as a black screen with a mouse pointer :-(

So I realised that my vista install was dead an buried, although the command line showed me that all my data (there is a huge amount) is all intact.

Vista wont let me install over the top of itself like XP used too. So I had to plug in another SATA drive to enable me to install a fresh copy of Vista on the 2nd disk without trashing the 1st.

Now I can boot Vista YAY!! well almost YAY!!.

I can see the original disk as D: but I cant access it.

I have tried setting the permissions on the drive, which went off and listed all my files as it set the new perms but afterwards I still could not access it (Access Denied).

I have a backstore drive standing by to copy across the 1TB of data (yes you read correctly), but I need to be able to access the data before I can back it up.

Any ideas?

So right now I have a Trojan. I am trying to get rid of it. Earlier I went into the WTM, and looked at my processes that I had running. What I am doing is going through all of the processes and looking up what they are, what they do, and if they could be a potential danger to my computer. I came across a program called SVCHOST.exe. I typed it in at the UniBlue process library, andI got mixed results. Apparently, SVCHOST is a essential program that is harmless, But, it seems that alot of Trojans and harmful things alike disguise themselves as SVCHOST. I currently have 8 different svchost.exe's running, with mem usage ranging from 3,000 kb, to 28,000. Do you think that I have a problem?

I'll make a long story short. I'm on Build 7100, and for some reason, all of my DL'd apps (Ones that weren't bundled with W7) were deleted, and/or they stopped working. I couldn't open anything.

I end up re-installing W7, and I have two problems:

1. I can't install Java, which would make a few apps work. It says I'm missing a DLL.
2. I install iTunes (64-bit), and it never opens.

WTF is going on?

Answer:URGENT HELP Needed.

What DLL does it say you're missing? And check the event log, application log specifically to see if that sheds any light on the itunes issue.

Question: Urgent Help Needed

I recently bought command and conquer delux edition and half life 2 but while playing (completely randomly) they hang. It happens everytime i play the maximum time i have played is 2 hours. My sytem specs are:
512MB RAM
Direct x 9.0c
RADEON 9600 SERIES 128.0 MB
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz (2 CPUs)
1mb internet connection
so i dont think i should have any problems playing but also to get even an ok frame rate i need to put it on low everything. Please help i have tried everything i can think even cleaning the inside of the computer to get rid of dust.

Have you downloaded the newest Catalyst Drivers? for your video card?

I had the same problem with Generals, but it went away when I downloaded the latest drivers.
