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.)

hi i've had a slew of problems with my new computer

-i get blue screened and it says a warning message that isn't the same from the previous windows, you know hwo it normally said your system has become unstable and what not. this message says that there was an error and windows is shutting itself down to prevent further damage

-i get black screened(iduno if thats the term) but what happens is i'll be working on some files and then out of nowhere my monitor goes black, the computer and monitor stay on, but the monitor goes into some sort of standby mode thing where the power light flashes

-i also ocassionally have trouble rebooting one of my other computers and whenever it gives me a problem the screen goes black and there's a green line that goes across the top of the monitor

iv'e tried spy ware removing programs/anti viruses/fire walls none of them seem to be working

any help would be greatly apprecieated
 

Answer:Solved: blue screens black screens green screens

The issues sound a bit like a hardware failure, the blue STOP screen could be hardware or software.

The Black screen sounds like the PC has died, but the power supply continues to run. This could well be hardware.

Both issues could be something like overheating of the CPU (are all fans running, is the CPU fan dust clogged - shouldnt be if it's "new")?

If it's "new" and under warranty, take it back.

It would have helped to know if it was a desktop or laptop though.

I'm beginning with this link because it is related to this previous issue. Its still the same computer with the same general problems. However, I discovered that by ensuring that windows media player was constantly playing music, the computer operates fast and smoothly for as long as I need it to (sometimes longer than 24 hours), albeit with the fan running full speed and flooding the house with its noise. All has been well until the other day I needed to burn some cds and reconnected the cdrom. Since then, its been subject to occasional freezes, mostly when left to sit when I leave the house on a whim. I've noticed that I sometimes return to a black screen, but erroneously attributed it to my computers failed attempts to hibernate (even though that option is disabled). Anyway, its been working wonderfully anyway when I've needed to use it. However, today I was doing a little basic browsing, only about three tabs open of an automotive website I frequently read. The screen randomly went all white while loading a page, and the computer froze up. My only option when it does that is to do a hard restart, so I did. I decided to disconnect my cdrom again. The computer then booted up normally, showed my desktop and loaded all icons and everything, but before everything was up and running, the whole screen went black and it froze.

Answer:white screens, black screens, blue screens... out of nowhere!

OK, I have read you last thread and sounds like you made some progress.

Lets see the details of the Blue Screen, follow this guide to attach it to your next post.


First locate your minidump files, they are usually found by clicking on your C: drive, in Windows Explorer, then click on Windows to view the contents. If your operating system is installed under a different drive letter then look there. They should be stored under a file called minidump.The files will have a .dmp extension.
Zip up at least 6 of the most recent files into one zip folder and save on your desktop (if there are less then just zip up what you have).
NOTE To zip up a file in Windows (all versions). Right-click the file or folder, click on Send To, and then click Compressed (zipped) Folder and save it to your desktop.
Open Windows Explorer, click on Desktop in the left column so you can see the zip file. In the left column click on C: > Windows > Minidump and then drag & drop any additional .dmp files into the zip folder.

• Below the Message Box click on Go Advanced. Then scroll down until you see a button, Manage Attachments. Click on that and a new window opens.
• Click on the Browse button, find the zip folder you made earlier and doubleclick on it.
• Now click on the Upload button. When done, click on the Close this window button at the bottom of the page.

So- I've had an abysmally frustrating and disappointing experience with this laptop from the get go. Three days after ordering it, both mine and my husbands laptop of the same model have had the same issues.First off- boot up has been incredibly slow, and not long after a completely clean reset to factory defaults, within days or even hours the same issues seem to return.Restarting the laptop, or signing in loads to a blank black screen with a mouse.I have tried the suggested method from other posts of removing the battery and restarting, as well as resetting the BIOS to default.Now on my laptop (Which is a blank slate currently aside from Norton Antivirus and windows 8 recommended updates. I've also uninstalled Pokki and nearly all extraneous bloatware that was making my boot time incredibly slow) is crashing to a blank blue screen within minutes of signing in.Please help! I'm resisting the urge to drive over these laptops with a vehicle- they've been completely unusable and we had such high hopes for then when we originally purchased them! ??

Hi, I am running Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 5741 laptop. I have dual monitors running. One of them is going through the VGA output of my laptop and the other is going through a USB to VGA adapter. Neither of my monitors are HDMI ready, unfortunately.This has worked for a couple of years but in the USB to VGA monitor, there is now a black square around my cursor that is really annoying. I am guessing it must be some setting that I accidentally changed or that my cat changed by running across my keyboard.Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I had a better card in the PC and was running the AMD catalyst drivers.
I took that card out and put in the x1300.

Several times noticed some weird effects.
Then today I powered down cause it was pink, and it refused to turn on the screen.
So I let it sit and it is working again.

I did not uninstall catalyst AMD drivers, is that a problem? the x1300 is not a supported video card.

If it is a problem, then are the AMD drivers destroying the card? (terminating the old technology to make you get new technology)

Answer:Pink screens, white screens, odd colors amd x1300 pro

Hi there .. It is more than likely the Card you Installed is faulty .. When you Installed that Card Windows would try to find a Driver for it .. Its a pretty old Card i know there are some Vista Drivers available for it .. Not sure about 64 Bit Drivers though ..

And I'm back again giving you another annoying dilemma to help me with.

Okay, the problems are on my main pc. The specs are below:

Windows 7 Ult. 64bit
Gigabyte 880GA-UD3H
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
4GB DDR3 PNY RAM
500GB Seagate HDD
Dynex 400 Watt Power Supply

*all parts were bought BRAND NEW

These problems ONLY occur when the pc boots up for the first time (after I shut it down at night and start it in the morning).

Every now and then, the pc will boot up to the desktop. Everything looks normal. All the taskbar icons load, internet connection, everything. However, when I begin to use an application, primarily firefox, to browse the web, the pc will begin to stutter. The cursor movements become jagged and in about 5 seconds, the screen goes black. The pc fans are still on, but the hard drive light is off. Once, the screen went to a sky blue color instead of black, but the outcome was the same.

The only way out is to reset the pc. After that, everything runs fine. I can do anything to the pc and it never crashes. This problem only occurs when the pc first initializes.

Another issue is random blue screens. I've encountered about 4-5 in the past two months. When I start my morning, I boot my pc and walk out to get my coffee, leaving it to idle. Sometimes when I come back, a BSOD is waiting for me.

Hey all

If this is in the wrong place then please move it

Anyway, I've been asked to put up two televisions that will display the same information in the office. At the moment, it's going well. I have a single computer underneath one television that has the information playing on a slideshow and it's connected to a VGA splitter. This splitter then splits the image so that the same information is displaying on the TV on the opposite side of the office (the VGA cable runs up into the ceiling and across).

However, they now want more information being displayed. Specifically, they want a real time web-based interface to be shown and for the screen to flick between the slideshow and the real time interface. The slideshow only shows one image - a graph showing their call times. I was wondering if there's any easy way to do this? All that I can think of is putting the image of the graph on one side of the screen and the web-based interface on the other. I was kind of hoping for it to be in full screen, though so it's easier to see and people don't have to leave their desks in order to see it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks!

Check the system Properties \ Startup and Recovery. Is the wright debug info set to Small Memory dump or Kernel Memory dump. You need it set to Small Memory dump to have a minidump log file in C:\Windows\minidump It would be best to have that file to see whats going on.

Answer:Vista 64 bit Random Blue Screens (67 blue screens in 5 months)

Okay, I read six of your most recent minidumps contained in your first Zip file and all four in your second Zip file.

Here are the ones that stand out because they give a probable cause.

Two errors are 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems (e.g., incorrect SCSI termination or a flawed PCI card).

The driver cited in both is klim6.sys which belongs to Kaspersky.


Four errors are 0x0000001E: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
The Windows kernel detected an illegal or unknown processor instruction. A Stop 0x1E condition can be caused by invalid memory and access violations similar to those that generate Stop 0xA errors.

0xA errors are caused by either hardware or drivers attempting to address an IRQ Level they have no business doing.

In all four the same Kaspersky driver kl1.sys was cited as the probable cause of your system crashes.


* I suggest updating Kaspersky and/or doing a search on their forums to see what the community has to say.

By the way, nice PC.

* Get back to us with any results.

Recently - past couple of weeks - I've been encountering "blue screens" at boot-up in the morning. I know these are serious, and probably indicate a new PC is needed; but maybe not. Can anyone please tell me how serious these errors are, and what the error source might be, based on the following technical information my system offers?:

12/20/11 - BAD_POOL_HEADER 0x00000019 (ox00000020, 0xE6C30500, 0xE6C31178, 0x0D8FF728)

12/22/11 - STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x00000074, 0xAF7E3C28, 0x00000000)

12/31/11 - 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x8056BEF6, 0xAF247A80, 0x00000000)

Thank you.

Answer:Stop Error Screens ("Blue screens")

This could be caused by a bad hard drive, bad ram or software/driver that was recently installed.
Does the blue screen occur prior to logging into Windows?
Have you tried to boot into Windows safe mode?
Have you tried going back to a previous restore point?

The early milestone "alpha" builds and pre-beta versions have been floating around for awhile. Beta 1 is supposed to be out early next year.

Vista was already a great OS and Microsoft is treating Windows 7 as an incremental upgrade. Its easy for them to release these early versions because they're basically Vista with some extra features and optimizations.

I have a Presario F500, and a V2000. The F500 screen flickers then goes dark. You can still see the screen if you put a flashlight on it. The V2000, has lines and a white bar on the right hand side of the screen. Both work fine hooked up to an external monitor. Everything I read seems to point towards bad screens. I just wanted someone elses opinion. Thank you for any help.
 

Answer:2 Bad Screens, or MB?

If both work fine when connected to an external monitor, it is either the screen or the cable that connects the motherboard to it.

The F500 sounds like the LED/LCD lighting has gone bad and the entire screen must be replaced. On the V2000, can you get the screen to display normally by moving the lid up and down? If so, it's likely a bad internal video cable. If not, the screen will have to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

I'd love to explore the option of using two screens (my TV and my pc monitor) together.

However, since I play games in full screen mode, it seems that either the other screen will display the game or it will display nothing at all.

Is it possible, for example, to have a game running in my monitor and VLC player running in the telly in full screen mode simultaneously? Or, for example, if I could browse internet at the same time.

You should use only water and a microfibre cloth to clean LCD computer screens. LCD cleaning products streak, and Windex Ammonia/Oil-based cleaners (like WD-40) can damage the screen.

you should be able to display any non metro app on the second screen.

all metro apps open on the primary display and can not be moved from that display.

if you don't mind a suggestion?
use vlc to watch your video's or something similar.
and chrome.

keep to the desktop as well.

and if this is what your doing already let me know and i'll have a look see if i can recreate the problem on my own system.

just let us know what applications your using at the time, also if they are metro apps or not as well would be great.

let's say i'm using 2 monitors, and 2 video cards so that one card outputs to one screen and the other card connects to the other screen. if i were to play a game which supports SLI, and obviously i'd be playing on only one of the screens, will both my video cards be used to run it? or will the game only use the one GPU that's connected to that monitor? i hope i'm making sense

Answer:SLI for 2 screens

It would use both cards, as long as they're properly SLI'd.

I think there is an issue with using two monitors with SLI, though.

Question: 2 screens?

I have come into possession of another screen and i was wondering what exactly i would need to do in order to use both screens.

And by 'both screens' i mean having a different program on screen in each one. For example: having my music open in one and my work open in the other.
 

Answer:2 screens?

We need some info on your hardware. Look at the back of your computer, where your monitor is connected. Do you have a second connector for a monitor? Are you using onboard video or an add-on video card?

What's the make and model of your computer? What's the make and model of each of your monitors, i.e. your "screens"? Do you know the type of connector they use, whether it's VGA or DVI?

I have two laptops, one windows 7 the other windows 8.
Is it possible to have a second screen connected on either of these showing a different page and if so how?

Answer:Is it possible to use two screens

What cable you need will depend on what connections you have on your laptop and the monitor or TV you which to connect to.So first we need to know what laptops you have then we will be able find out what the specs are.
Do you want to connect to a monitor or TV? Once you are connected then it is very simple to have different web pages on each screen.

Question: LCD Screens

Does the clarity change or, is there a noticeable difference at all using a matte finish LCD screen compared to the other brand laptop's with the glossy/glass like finish screen? Any opinions are greatly appreciated.





Jerry

Answer:LCD Screens

Hi Jerry, You are likely to get a very wide range of opinions on the matter of matte vs. glossy, depending on whom you ask. I'd guess that since most here are ThinkPad users, they'll prefer matte. If you ask the same question of MacBook/Pro users... I'd imagine you'd get the opposite response. My opinion: If you want to see your own reflection (or what's behind you), use a mirror. If you want to see what's on your computer screen, reflections only obscure that, and so the less reflective the screen surface is, the better. There are other types of displays (reflective and transreflective) that actually rely on reflected light: they get brighter as the background light gets brighter, and are great for use outdoors. AFAIK they're not so good for displaying accurate colors, though. Even for these, I think you'd want a matte surface finish. Specular reflections from a glossy/mirror surface are too distracting. Diffuse reflection from a matte surface is less distracting even if it's just as bright, because the reflected brightness is uniform, rather than forming patterns (images). For anyone reading this who cares about display quality, please take a minute or two to fill out the survey in my signature below. A major purpose for the survey is to show Lenovo that there is significant demand for ThinkPads with better screens. Thanks!-Frank

I have a X61s attached to a base station. I have two screens but although you can connect them both (one to the base station and one to the computer) I am not able to get the second screen to work. Is is possible to connect two screens to the laptop + basestation?If so how would you do this - and where can I find out any info on how to do this?Many thanks in advance for any help on this.DCurtis

Answer:Two Screens possible?

I believe that the VGA connection on the left of the laptop is inactive when on the base station. I operate with two different displays (Extended desktop) one being the laptop and the other being a LCD connected to the UltraBase VGA which shows the desktop to the right of my laptop screen. You were maybe wanting the screen plugged into the laptop to show what is on the laptop screen and ultrabase to show the extended desktop? I am not aware of a way of doing that.

Question: LCD screens??

Ok I know that most people here are system builders and there are a few repair techs out there..

Any way I have a HP Touch smart IQ 770. Recently after running about a hour the screen will flicker. Go from dim to bright.. After a few minutes of that the screen will just go black. If I reboot it will come back up for a short time but goes out again.

Trying to figure out if this is a monitor problem or a Video card problem. Recently Microsoft was loged in remotely trying to resolve a virus problem. The screen went black but they were able to keep working on it.
 

Answer:LCD screens??

Either the power management software is haywire or the monitor is failing.

Locate power management controls - and disable them / set to manual.... Also, you may try SAFE mode which shouldn't have any power management to help isolate the issue.

Answer:2 screens

Hi caretaker44, and welcome to TSG.

There are USB based video controllers being made, but they may not give you optimal video performance.
http://www.amazon.com/IOGEAR-External-Video-Card-GUC2015V/dp/B000NJFJJK

You would be better served using some type of video adapter or converter if the computer has any kind of video output connector.

It would also help us to assist you if you were to give us the brands and full model names/numbers of both the second monitor and computer. You also need to be a bit more specific than "wrong sort to plug in (old type)" when describing the video connector because we have no way of knowing how old is old.

Question: LCD screens ?

The contrast ratio of LCD screens is the darkest of black and the brightest of white and it is how much shades of black and white the screen can display .Not how much color it can display or shades of color.

Also is true that contrast ratio is not how sharp the pictures is but the dot pitch is how sharp the picture is.The lower the dot pitch the sharper the image

Also the more color depth the more bits used to represent the color pixel and that gives a better range of distinct colors.

A one bit would be 2 color and 2-bit would be 4 colors.And 4-bit would be 16 colors.The most they have now are 32 bit

Question: Blue screens

I've got an HP dv6t quad edition that I got in December 2009. It's been working very well, but occasionally it will either freeze (display still on, but nothing responsive), or spontaneously restart, or spontaneously shut down. It sometimes hangs when going into standby, also - it will do everything as if it's going into standby but won't power down, and it will be non-responsive.

I'm running the factory-installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

I managed to look at the .dmp file from today's blue-screen - I returned home to find my computer off; it shut down by itself. I've got the results below, but I don't know how to interpret them. Full collection info is attached too. Thanks! It would be great not to be constantly wondering when the next crash or BSOD will come.

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Start your own thread in the appropriate section of the forum and attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

Answer:pop up screens behind firefox

Hi and to TSF
Try installing a popup blocker add-on for Firefox. I personally prefer and recommend adblock plus (its the most popular, obviously because it's very good at what it does) and its popup add-on, that way you get to kill ads and popups. Find adblock plus here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir.../adblock-plus/ and its popup addon here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...-addon/?src=ss. In addition, there's another very handy add-on for adblock plus called Element hiding helper. It allows you to block any other stuff that wasn't handled by adblock plus. You can find it here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...helper/?src=ss. With those three, I'm sure you'll get intrusion-free browsing.

It is also possible you may have adware running on your system. Run AdwCleaner. It will scan for and list any adware found on your system. You may wanna close all browsers first so that it can remove browser adware extensions as well. Reboot when it prompts you to. If it finds any items, after the reboot, run it again to conform the first found items were successfully removed and no longer exist. Post back on how it goes. You can attach the adwcleaner log after the cleanup.

Alrighty gents. I am fairly computer savvy and my googlefu is strong.... yet here I am, beseeching you for your help. It seems the appcrash issue is a plague and the solution varies wildly, from enabling search history in Firefox to activating DEP.

Anyway... for me this seems to be happening when browsing in windows explorer. It's happened mostly in the "documents" section and the "downloads." I am not really doing anything other than just.. browsing.

It seems kind of random and I can't really pin it down to one "cause" and I can't duplicate it... so it's making it tough. There is a common theme though -- ntdll.dll What is this DLL and how do I fix it?

Question: Blue Screens

Hello everyone!

The last computer I last used for the site Kompoz.com started shutting down automatically with the blue screen of death. It turned out the pc got a virus from a music site, though they couldn't verify from where exactly (kompoz.com is an online music collaboration site). Now, I have a brand new computer....and immediately after I started messing with Kompoz, my brand new computer will shut down with the blue screen of death if I even think of downloading something from or uploading something to Kompoz.

A user on the site assured me it shouldn't be the site and suggested I use a program to pull my dump files and then head here for some input. The other computer was either windows 7 or xp, my new laptop is an hp with windows 8. I am not using any of the same components from the last computer. I've attached images of the dump report. If there's more information needed, I will need guidance on how to find it.

Any advice/help on why I keep experiencing this and how to stop it from happening would be great.

Often when I'm going to a certain page, without me touching the computer
a new screen comes up having nothing to do with anything.
This happens all the time.
Very frustrating!
Any ideas?
Thanks for help.

Answer:Uncalled for screens!

I assume you're browsing the internet when this happens.

What browser are you using? What do the screens say? Are they popups or full screens?

Have you scanned your computer for malware recently?

when I want to close a screen in Internet Explorer, it just won't work. I have to open the task manager to close it. It's pretty annoying, so i hope someone can tell me what's wrong.

Answer:can't close screens

We'll need to know your OS and your Browser version.

Did you install any software during the time that you first noticed the symptom?

Have there been any other odd behaviors by your system, even brief or transient?

Do you get any error messages when trying to close a window?

Does task manager say the what the window you are trying to close is "running", and if so, do you get a "not responding: error when you close it?

Question: Blue Screens

Hello, about a week ago I did a reinstall of my OS after a series of problems. (Can read up on that here.)

So over the course of the week, I was letting things run, checking for any errors that may pop up before I attempted to get Windows re-registered with my product key and all. During that time I have ran into a couple of BSOD at different points and time, at first it seemed that the screens only happen during moments of inactivity, like the times I have my computer on and I kind of just pass out watching tv or whatever. I come back to it to shut it down and it goes BSoD on return... and only once during those time it happen right when I started up a game. Also this morning, when I turning it back on I had to go into repair mode and have the system resolve that issue before I could log back into the OS. So thats when I decided to do the full on Crash/Debugging report.

Windows 7 Set Up:
-Windows 7 x64
-Re-installation of Windows 7 Home Premium (previously OEM)
-Re-installation happen about 8 days ago.
-I got the computer itself about a year ago.

Additional info attached.

I'm not sure what you are getting at here.
What exactly are you trying to do?
This looks to be a laptop so I doubt there's really anything hardware related that can be changed such as overclocking or tightening the memory timings.
The most you could do is all the "Normal" tweaks such as disabling indexing, keeping the hard drive(s) defragged, having the latest drivers, disabling unneeded services, etc.

I have eliminated most of that in the Ivy Bridge with the new EUFI but this is the old Award software one and now I have had a look through but really don't see anything that makes real sense to me.

About a week ago my computer started deselecting whatever screen I am on every few seconds. If I am on a full screen game it kicks me out to my desktop every few minutes. Typing out this post alone is/was a major headache. I can't really get anything done right now. I googled this problem and so far have not found any solutions that have worked for me. I tried going into my settings and deselecting the check for updates option as that was something that was suggested. I have also tried restarting and shutting down my computer numerous times. Since this problem started I have not been able to successfully run McAfee, I go to open it and all that appears is a blank white screen. Oh, and of course my computer warranty just expired around Christmas.

Any suggestions would be helpful! Right now my computer is basically useless.

Answer:Screens keep getting deselected

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Let's see if it is related to McAfee.

Just as an experiment, please download MSE. Don't run the installation file, just save it to your desktop.

Disconnect from the internet and uninstall McAfee... restart and install MSE. When MSE wants to get its updates, please re-connect to the internet.

If you prefer McAfee, you can uninstall MSE and put it back on after we finish solving your problem.

I?m using W7 Professional x64

My graphics card is a Gainward Radeon HD 4850 512MB
My monitor is a Dell 2007WFP
My tv is a Pioneer plasma KRP-500M

My problem:

I have tried to connect my tv via DVI-D to my graphics card. When the pc monitor is active and I activate my tv to the pc-input, the only thing I see on my tv is the desktop screen with no information at all (no shortcuts, no windows buttons).

When I disconnect my pc-monitor, the tv works well and I can control the pc watching my tv (all the screens and shortcuts are visible).

So my question is how I can make both screens work at the same time, so both screens are connected and on both screens I can see all the actions I execute.

I have downloaded and installed the latest drivers.
Via the ATI Control center I can switch between the 2 screens. But that?s not want I want, I want to use them simultaneously.

Answer:Using 2 screens simultaneously

Hi, welcome to the forums

What you're describing is the 'Extended Desktop' whish just adds extra width to the existing screens. If you press Win+P and select 'Duplicate' does it solve the issue?

First timer here but active reader. I have been having a problem that I hope this community can help me with. I have a two year old HP desktop running Windows 7 64 bit. I have been getting blue screens,random freezes and the like. I installed Blue screen view and several memory dumps indicated it was Windows operating system that was causing the problem. Though one time it led me to believe it was my ATI video card. So I re-installed my operating system hoping this would solve my issues. It did not. I am still getting blue screens and random freezes. The latest blue screen view contains the following language:Address in stack - hal.dll+12818From address: fffff800`02c0e000To address:fffff800`02c57000size:0x00049000Dump file: 073011-35724-01.dmpEvery so often I get an error message that says "out of resource" or something like that.

Hi Dual Clone and Welcome,

Could you please fill in your system specs on your forum profile so we know what we're working with?

Importantly:what make/model is your graphics card?
Does it support two screens?
Have you loaded the graphics card software and drivers that came with it?
Can you see two screens in display settings (Control Panel | Display | Screen
Resolution)?
If you see 2 screens are both enabled?

Did your new monitor come with an install disk?

I'm sure we'll be able to help you further, hang in there and get back to me.

Question: Blue Screens

Hello,

I'm running a WinXP Pro SP3 computer as a server for a restaurant's MICROS register systems. Over the past few months, I've been getting trouble calls from the staff there about the server being down. The server doesn't have a monitor plugged into it, so they never knew what was causing it to stop responding, but I just installed BlueScreenView and it's been getting stop errors. Two of them were caused by the RDP Display Driver (which seems to have resolved itself since I updated the video card drivers) and the other (more frequent, seems to be about once a month) is being caused by rkhdrv40.sys.

I was wondering if anyone had any idea how to fix this problem.

Thanks in advance,
Ryan

Thanx in advance

You need to connect them in one of the following,

1. DVI, DVI, displayport

2. DVI, HDMI, displayport

You can not run 3 at the same time using DVI/DVI/HDMI, and if none of your monitors has a displayport then you need one of these,

Question: Blue Screens

Everytime I try to run ANY game, or even watch a youtube video, my driver crashes and recovers or I get a BSOD.
I am currently using an AMD A8-5600K APU, Asrock FM2A75 Pro4-M motherboard, Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 (2x4) Ram. Those are the only thing I could think of that would cause my problem. I ran a memtest on one of the ram components and found no errors after one pass, I am in the process of testing the other. I uninstalled the AMD drivers I had and did ANOTHER detect and install, still getting a BSOD whenever I try to do anything other than letting it idle. The only lead I have so far is that I've heard some AMD processors have trouble with 1600 ram, can anyone help me out?

Running windows 7 64x

Uninstalled and then reinstalled AMD drivers, got another 0x00000116 error just by watching a youtube video.

The APU is a combo CPU/GPU and according to Catalyst is equivalent to Radeon HD 7560 or something.

Question: W7 Blue screens?

I recently installed W7 and I have encountered a few blue screens. I have narrowed it down to a few things that go wrong after it happens.

I use AMD Fusion most of the time, it seems to turn off my mouse drivers I think?

I installed my Razer Lachesis drivers, I got a blue screen sometime after this, upon restarting they don't want to work. As in the onscreen display wont show up when trying to change sensitivity, the mouse feels different, so the drivers aren't loaded I would think.

I messed with my page file, when I used XP I had it on a seperate partition on a different drive than my games. I am doing this now, but I turned off the "system determined" page file in the C drive. I crashed twice after that when trying to play L4D2, and when I tried to launch Dawn of War 2, I got an error about not having enough virtual memory. I turned that option back on and it worked fine. I haven't crashed in a few hours, even when gaming.

What is deal with having the system do the page file for you? Do I need to do that or something, or what exactly should I have this set to? Could using Fusion make me bsod? I never had that on XP though?

Thanks!

On my primary monitor I've run a 360 and my Windows 7 p.c into it. I've set up a shortcut hotkey so that I can disable the primary to swap to the 360 when needs be. However I'd like to be able to access the web whilst using my 360 without having to cycle through the monitor menu to swap back. So I got my old monitor on my desk, however I can't think what to do with it. It's got a lower resolution than my primary so simply making it the secondary whenever I want to use the 360 isn't viable (it messes up the icons). I can't think of any work around, using ultramon and shrinking the main image isn't very good either due to it having both delay and a lower framerate even at the the highest systme usage settings. Can you guys think of any work arounds? I've tried saving the icon positions but then firefox still opens in the main monitor. I really would like to swap monitors on the fly with a hotkey and restore icons later.

Question: Blue Screens...

Just recently, I have completely rebuilt my computer from the case up. Brand new CPU, RAM, Hard Drive, DVD RW+, Video Card, Motherboard, the works... As a direct result of this, I took it upon myself to start completely fresh by fdisking, formating and installing windows xp professional service pack 2.

As I am accustomed to having two drives, I decided to partition my new hard drive with C: being FAT32 (40GB) for my windows drive, and D: being NTFS (280GB) for my storage drive.

Since I have done this I have run into a rather nasty blue screen. The PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON-PAGED_AREA caused by the ntfs.sys. This seems to only occur when I attempt to run a .exe installer for a game called Risk Your Life 2: Incomplete Union. It goes about its regular business of asking where I would like to install to, (D:\Games) and then begins extracting the files... At about 20-30% it drops to a blue screen stating that there was a page fault in non-paged area caused by the ntfs.sys file.

This leads me to believe that during the high i/o usage of my D: drive, the ntfs.sys file simply buckled under the pressure... Which, needless to say, I find a bit flaky.

Since this error has surfaced I have:
-Double checked my drivers to ensure the current version is installed.
-Double checked that my direct X is current.
-Gone through windows update installing everything.
-Adware, Spyware & Virus scans.
-Run chkdsk.exe D: /F /V
