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.)

Hey Board, couldnt find any fitting solution on your board for my issue yet. That is why i am posting my question. So my problem is, that my WLan seems to be damaged. It is possible to connect via cable to networks (only the private ones, not the public one in the university) but i cant do the same per WLan. Reenabling the WLan adapter doesnt work either. I did run the Intel Pro Set diagnosis tool and it failed at the 3rd stage, that is at the point, where it checks the "sender". I already tried to reenable it, as i said and now i have no idea how to solve this issue. Any Ideas? I would be most grateful, as you surely can imagine.

Answer:WLan doesnt work anymore - cable connection still does

Hi Dumbledoge,
Welcome to Lenovo Community!

Did you check with updating the WLAN driver. And also provide the current driver version installed?
In order to enable the WLAN we need to use function keys or with Wifi switch, did you check with that?
Can you provide the system MTM (Machine Type Model) & the details of the Operating System installed.

Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

Hi all, My Thinkpad model is T500 2055-A81 + WWAN modul installed 4 weeks ago. Today I found an issue with the "Ericsson f3507g" WWAN modul. It worked fine under Vista32. With  Fn+F5 it was turned on and with the "MWconn" software I was able to connect to my provider. The LED for WWAN worked fine too. I used it several times, on different days. Now the modul isn't anymore in the Hardware list of Vista and with Fn+F5 only WLAN and Bluetooth are provided. The LED stays off all the time. I didn't run any Update from Lenovo in between, just the Windows patches. I tried to Update everything via LenovoUpdate, so everything it's the newest version now.But still it doesn't work. No Enty in Windows device list and no WWAN in Fn+F5 popup menu.   When I boot my second operating system Ubuntu 9.04, the WWAN module is detected, I'm able to connect to my provider and surf in the web. So the hardware works fine in the system. It'is just not detected under Vista. How can I make it running again in Vista? Thanks a lot! Schm1tty

Answer:Ericsson f3507g doesn't appear under Vista32 anymore (but works under Ubuntu Linux 9.04)

Click on Start, then type cmd and hit enter.  Type ipconfig /all.  Under the entry for your wireless connection, does it say "Media disconnected"?

Out of no where my computer apparently died. I haven't updated or downloaded anything for it to do this. And I'm pretty good on computers.

Anyways I tried inputting the cd because it was giving me this error:

The file is possibly corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum.

But when I tried loading the cd, it kept going back to the boot manager and not even loading windows from the cd to fix it.

Windows boot manager:

Windows failed to load because the kernel is missing or corrupt.

Ideas or options?

Answer:Windows isn't booting up anymore & CD won't work

Hi Johnny. Not sure if the CD you mention is your original Windows 7 installation or a system recovery cd you made. Regardless, the BOOT ORDER must be set to boot from the CD Drive first to read/boot from the CD. Generally you can change the boot order by entering BIOS. Give that a try and report back.

Windows xp media center edition 2005 sp3

Hi, I was on here about a month ago and got some excellent help from one of you fine people on this site.

So after I clicked to "restart my computer after an adobe reader update", the next time I turned it on, the computer completely froze after a few minutes of booting up... After a few times of this occuring, I opened tasked manager to see what was going on and I noticed regsvr32.exe and regedit.exe appear in the process list JUST before the computer freezes...

I am unable to do any of the scans listed in the "read me" thread because of how it freezes so quickly... I will attempt to do them in safe mode (as I am able to get into safe mode without the freezing) and post them in this post, but I just wanted to get this thread up as soon as possible in hopes of a quicker reply.

I am not totally convinced it is malware, considering adobe reader updated may not have updated properly? Anyhow, thanks for taking the time to look at this and hopefully someone will be able to help me out!

Sorry about the double post (tried to edit first post but could not find the edit option!)

Anyhow I was able to complete both the DDS and GMER scan in SAFE MODE. I forgot to mention in my first post that I do have access to an install disc... CPU still freezing after few minutes of boot... I know doing all the scans in safe mode does not let you see all the processes running that could be causing this to happen, so hope... Read more

Hi All,I'd just like to know if the Lenovo V110-15AST runs well with Linux. I'm planning on buying one but will reconsider is there are too many Linux compatible issues. I have already looked at ubuntu's compatibility page, various Linux resources etc. I read in the manual for the Lenovo V110-15AST that a fast boot system will have issues (something to that effect) but anything majorly wrong with the combo?

I went to a LAN party so I unplugged all my cables from the pc. When arriving at the lan party I plugged everything back in and booted into Vista Ultimate.
Everything was detected properly and I encountered no problems.
But when I got home again I wanted to boot into Windows XP Pro and that's where the problems started.

My USB Keyboard and USB mouse would not light up when I was in XP. The Install New hardware window popped up asking me to install "new" devices: "composite usb device".
You might understand that it's impossible to proceed this installation when you cannot use your mouse and keyboard.

Unfortunatly I do not have a PS/2 mouse or keyboard around.

How do I get my mouse and keyboard working again? (booting into "LAST KNOWN WORKING CONFIGURATION" does not work) and everything has been working fine for more than a year now, untill I unplugged them and probably plugged them into a different usb port (btw all my ports are 2.0).

Answer:keyboard and mouse don't work anymore after moving the pc (works in vista though)

I have a 20? gateway 900G monitor. It was working fine for the 3 years I have had it. Then randomly today I restarted my computer and it wouldn?t work. I boot in safe mode and it works fine. Just when I get past the windows loading screen it then tells me that I have no signal. This happens in both XP and Vista. Linux runs fine still. The computer tells me it cannot find a monitor plugged in at all. The video card I have is a two DVI port X1650 pro. I used a DVI to VGA converter and connected a second VGA monitor to the second port and Windows boots just fine in that monitor but the other one once again went blank past the boot screen. I have no idea why my monitor won?t work. My computer is a 3.4 GHZ Pentium 4 with 3 gigs of ram.

Hi forum,

The screen of my laptop does not work anymore, despite suffering no physical damage. Therefore, from now on I am using an external monitor and safe mode with networking.
When booting, the windows symbol appears normally, yet before showing the desktop a crash dump pops.
Launch startup repair does not solves the issue, showing no results whatsoever.


Thank you so much in advance for your help.

I have windows 7 home premium dual booting with Linux Mint 8, on a Dell XPS M1530.

When I shut down linux mint and go back into windows I have the following problem.

Upon the windows 7 desktop appearing, I am able to type or use the keyboard as usual-until I touch the touchpad on my laptop. After I touch the touchpad, (even for just the slightest second!) I am unable to type anything. For example, if I launch the start menu and then try to type to find a file nothing will happen. The only way for me to get by this is to reboot the computer again. So essentially I have to reboot twice in order to get a working keyboard with Windows after being in linux.

This problem does not happen if I stay in Windows and reboot windows repeatedly. (I tested it by reinstalling windows and having it as the only OS for about a week.)
I tried the following workarounds: using the Dell support software to disable the touchpad when a mouse is present.

I tried reinstalling the touchpad driver.

Nothing has worked. Alps electric is the touchpad manufacturer.

I asked this question on the ubuntu forums and got back the answer that windows doesn't like the other OS on there and upon reboot gets confused or sees things are in a different state. I was also told that Windows uses a HID device for the keyboard and Linux does not.
Very annoying problem and I doubt there is a fix for it, but please help if you can.

Hi guys,

I have a problem and I've tried to figure it out for the whole day now.

It's mind-boggling and SUPER frustrating at the same time.

Basically I installed a fresh copy of Windows 8.1 Pro to my computer and when I plug both DVI cables into the GTX 750Ti (I run Dual monitors) it goes to the 'Windows 8 Blue logo start up but then suddenly my monitors have no signal (and my mouse turns off, aka it looks like my USB shutsdown) but my mobo is still on + cpu fans/case fans, etc.

So I tried using the IGPU and it works fine, you can plug one DVI into the IGPU DVI out, and one monitor DVI to the GTX750Ti and it will boot into windows fine.

The biggest thing that boggles me is that upon a fresh install it worked fine, AND I can reinstall windows fine again, but it *SEEMS* like after I install the NVIDIA graphics card drivers it starts happening again and I can only use IGPU to boot into windows. Now, when I first installed windows it was working fine, till I shut it down and it won't boot again hence having to try IGPU. I tried formatting, I've tried everything!

All my parts are brand new, I've tried everything there is to try, and googled alot (I've enabled/disabled secureboot multiple times, I've done 'primary display adapter 'PCI-E' and switched between them), I've tried almost everything!

My specs are as follows:

ASUS Geforce GTX750Ti GPU
Asrock H97M-ITX/ac MOBO
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb
Samsung EVO 840 SSD

Answer:Windows 8 Booting (IGPU works, PCI-E GTX750Ti doesn't work

The craziest thing is - Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't - remember it goes to blue windows 8 logo AND THEN there is no monitor signal.
If I use Integrated Graphics it 100% always works. I'm thinking it might be some sort of bios problem maybe? I really don't know anymore :|

My dell laptop came with a windows home basic 64bit initially.. I installed windows 8 and then further ubuntu 12.04 through windows 8 to my system.

Due to some unrecognized problem, windows 8 became highly unresponsive as it made the screen unstable as soon as it booted. Due to which i had to delete windows 8 from my system. But i made a mistake of formatting the drive windows 8 was in without uninstalling ubuntu from my system. Since then it didnt boot any other system other than the original windows. If i try installing any OS to my system, just as the installation is about to start the laptop shuts down..I am incapable to load any other OS..I have tried various versions of linux based systems.

I have re-installed windows 7 on my system; making all new partitions. Now many errors that used to occur before in my system are resolved but this problem of the OS installation remains.

Any help on the matter is most welcome..Since I am a linux user..I'd like my system to be responsive to it asap..Any ideas on how windows 8 might have effected my system boot is also welcome.

I have a customer who has the above model Lenovo laptop. She hooked up an an external display via HDMI using a HDMI-mini HDMI adapter connected to the mini-HDMI port of the laptop which was working fine for more than a few months. She was using the Best Buy Insignia brand. All of a sudden, the external display no longer detected the laptop and the laptop didn't detect the second display. I remoted in and checked everything out and it seemed OK as far as drivers and such so, for simplicity sake (and after having her verify the external display was working wtih other devices), I had her pick up an Insignia HDMI-miniHDMI cable and just bypass the adapter. She tried that, no luck. So I remoted in again and uninstalled the Intel and Nvidia drivers and reisntalled them using the drivers from the Lenovo website. There was no change. I've done some extensive research about this issue in the forums and there have been other models with similar issues and the fixes were... using a different cable, different adapter, or both. These were mainly solutions to solve the problem of secondary displays not being detected at first, not fixing the issue of it working just fine for a while until one day... nothing. Has anyone come across an issue similar to this? I'm trying to get more of a definate solution versus swapping more adapters and cables around. One last idea I have is to hook it up to my monitor via an HDMI to DVI adapter using her HDMI to mini HDMI cable but I have a feeling, th... Read more

I'm having a similar problem to Chris Chu -

I just upgraded from Qwest DSL 1.5 Mbps with an Actiontec GT701 modem to the 12Mbps service with the Actiontec Q1000 modem, set up with just the default options.

I'm having a very peculiar problem. I can see the Q1000's GUI control panel ( and browse the Internet from a computer connected via wi-fi. However, a computer connected viaEthernet doesn't see the web or even the Q1000 control center. A ping from the Ethernet-connected machine times out. However, the Ethernet-connected machine CAN see the other machines connected to the Q1000 - I played an MP3 file from one of the other machines. So the router function for the LAN is working, but the Q1000 doesn't respond to a ping or let me see the external 'Net or even browse to the Q1000's GUI panel.

I've tried this with just one machine connected directly via Cat5 and none of the other Ethernet ports on the Q1000 used. I've done that from two different PCs, using 4 different Cat5 cables, and trying different ports on the Q1000. I've also tried it going through a D-Link switch with the same results from 4 different PCs.
All of these connections worked with the GT701 and the 1.5 Mbps service, but not with the Q1000. We even tried replacing the Q1000 with the same results. (Firmware versions were QAQ01-31.00L.34 on the first Q1000 and QAQ01-31.00L.33 ... Read more

Hello all, I'm very new to the board so I hope I placed this topic in the right forum:

For some reason, I cannot connect to the internet anymore on my hp laptop. It stopped working about a few months ago, but I have other computers in the house, so I just ignored it for a while, hoping that it will just fix itself (wishful thinking, lol). Every time I try to open up an internet browser, the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" is the only thing that shows up. What's even more strange is that there are 3 other laptops in my house (all running off of a wireless internet router), but they all connect to the internet just fine....I've tired rebooting the laptop, restarting the internet, etc. I'm not a computer genius so it could be a number of issues. I don't know what's going on...

Some additional info:

-My laptop is a Microsoft XP [Version 5.1.2600] Home Edition, HP Pavillion dv8000
-My computer has been currently set to automatically add updates
-I recently updated my iTunes about two months ago (and I can't place my purchased songs on my iPod because I can't connect to the iTunes store (which requires internet connection))

<<Local Area Connection: A network cable is unplugged", but I don't use any cords for this laptop anyway. I use wireless internet for it.>>

Probably indicates that your wired, onboard NIC is not connected. You can disable this in the BIOS, if you like.

As for your wireless connection...try deleting the connection and setting it up anew.

I'm running Windows 8.1 64bits.
I have noticed since a couple of days ago that my Control+Tab shortcut does not work anymore. Not on text editors, not on web browsers, not on property pages, nowhere.
Control+Shift+Tab (reverse tab navigation) still works.
I have checked the results on an application called "Ethervane ActiveHotkeys". In there, it states that Control+Shift+Tab is not an active hotkey but that Control+Tab IS. I assume that some application decided to globally pick up Control+Tab for itself.
I have tried restarting (and testing as quickly as possible before all programs load), I have tried closing down all applications that the task manager will let me and still the shortcut does not work.
I tried going to msconfig and disabling all programs and non-Microsoft services with no luck, but if I start Windows 8 in Safe Mode then Control+Tab works again.
I tried running Hotkey Commander; it shows Control+Tab as being bound by some application, but does not show which application it is. If I delete/disable the hotkey binding from inside Hotkey Commander then it works again until I restart.
I'm stumped as to how to troubleshoot this further and any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Control+Tab does not work anywhere anymore (Control+Shift+Tab still works)

I'm having the same problem as of today, and basically mirrored your findings.  The only thing I can think of that changed in the last 24 hours was the nVidia drivers and Geforce experience..

Out of nowhere!
I first noticed my Blackberry wasnt syncronizing automatically as it used to, after I upgraded to BB 6.0. I tried the portable HDD which didnt do anything and no flashdrives were regognized.
I tried to uninstall BB6.0 (unsuccessfuly) It froze. Just coulndt do it.
When trying to install BB5.1 from a CD, it didnt want to autorun, although the CD was turning.
I followed a thread to get the DVD working by toggling the autorun option and installed BB 5.1. I couldnt sync, though as none of the USB is working. Stragely my logitech mouse works. It seems that if a device is connected in the USB before I start up the machine it works OK, when inserted after start-up it doesnt work.
I have tried MS Fix it for hardware devices and it has been running for 4 hrs "resolving" problems. I suspect its not working.
What can I do?

Hello, I have a Sony Vaio SVE15115FXS that I purchased in September of 2012. I had only had the computer for 1 month, I took it to school in a case and when I got there I had a cracked screen. I honestly don't know how it happened, it didn't fall, no one else was in the car, I don't know but none the less, it had a cracked screen. I was not aware that I needed to buy physical damage warranty because a cracked screen isn't covered by the regular warranty. I needed my computer for school so I had hooked up my home computer monitor to my laptop which worked for about another month, then I couldn't get it to go on anymore. I tried and tried but nothing would work. While trying, I noticed that my comuter didn't seem to be making the normal startup sounds. All the lights work, but it just doesn't sound right. You can hardly hear it. Next, I left it alone for a while until I could afford to buy a new screen. I couldn't afford to have Sony fix it for me, even though it was only a month old so I ordered a screen online and changed it myself. I did everything just like the video instructed but it still isn't working. I never made a recovery disk, it was only working for a month. It's a brand new computer but I'm sure fixing the screen myself voided my 1 year warranty with Sony. I just don't know what to do next. I've already spent so much money and made so many mistakes, I just would like to hear some advise from someone ... Read more

Answer:Cant make my laptop work with a different screen anymore

I can appreciate your anxiety and frustration due to what has occurred. Particularly since Vaios are quite expensive relative to other computers. Were i in your shoes i would elevate your warranty application to a considerably higher level.Caveat being if there is a clear pronouncement within the warranty statement that came with the computer that such faults are NOT covered or there is any manifestation on the computer to an external damage event. I will cross my fingers re the next observation as to another possible solution=if by chance you made the original purchase with a credit card some credit cards have an extended warranty provision if a purchase is made with it.The provisions of the credit card warranty as well as extending the warranty period are always more inclusive than that of a vendor or manufacturer and are NOT dependent on the product warranty and in fact cover situations like yours even if the accompanying warranty excludes them or doesn't include them. I hope that was your purchase method.If you still have the damaged screen reinstall it before dealing with the warranty aspect.To me it is not unfathomable that a defect in the manufacture of the laptop could be at the basis of the damaged screen. Given your additional comments re the absence of "normal" startup sounds i suspect there is even more than the screen damage involved here.I wish i could be more helpful but i urge you to try my suggestion.truenorth P.S. You also might want to invest... Read more

I used to have a laptop connected with wireless (netgear WG511) through a router (D-link) to my main computer with the internet.

Yesterday I got a new laptop, upgrading from an IBM r40 to an r52, and was wondering how to get the wireless network working again. The r52 appears to have a wireless card built in, and can find networks, as it can find my neighbours one (but cant connect)

I tried installing the Netgear external wireless card, but that didnt do anything except make a new network connection, which also didnt work.

If there is any other information thats needed, please let me know cos I really dont have much idea at all...

Hello, I recently fought off a virus that wasted days out of my life. It also brought about another virus that attacked my external harddrive, which I ended up using file recovery to recover and reformat and that's fine and taken care of. with nod32 and malwarebytes, I was finally able to finish off the virus, but I think it left behind something on my computer which isn't letting me use usb thumbdrives, or my external hardrive.

My external hardrive, which now actually does work on other pc's after reformatting, doesn't even show up on my computer after being plugged in, only shows up in safely remove hardware. If I plug in a thumbdrive or my ipod, it does show up on my computer, but when I try to access it it gives me an error and says

"The maximum number of secrets that may be stored in a single system has been exceeded."

Also, my computer's still been somewhat slow even after getting rid of spyware and trojans. And I scanned with Uniblue which found tons of registry errors, but I noticed that after it "fixed" them, it made my computer EVEN slower. So I reverted back the changes. My computer also sometimes freezes when it starts up after all virus abuse. It's been happening a little less often lately though. Since I've scanned with nod32 and malwarebytes, I don't think I have anymore viruses, so what's the problem?

My config is HP G6 1075 SA with W7 Home Premium 64 bit pre-installed. It was working well until last week when I decided to install Debian Linux. I am no N00B to Linux and have installed it probably 100s of times. Debian installed and booted well but Windows BSODed with an error 0x0000225 cannot access drive. I formatted C and attempted to reinstall Windows 7 but it is unable to detect the HDD. I accept terms of license and move on to the point of choosing disks but nothing shows up. (There is an option to choose drivers. Where do I locate them? The HP website isn't helpful and I can't even find my product let aside the drivers)

I have already tried :
1. Partitioning an NTFS file system in Debian. Doesnt show.
2. Deleting a partition in Debian and attempt to see the free space in W7 Installer. Didn't work.
3. Try to do the BIOS setting thing (Change SATA option from AHCI to compatible or something). I could find no such setting in BIOS. The BIOS was severely limited with only option of switching on fan.

What do I do ?
The chipset is Intel HM55 if that helps and harddrive is SATA 5400 rpm 500GB.

Answer:W7 installer doesn't detect SATA after Linux, Linux works smoothly

All Linux code must be deleted using the CLEAN ALL command.As you have had linux on the HD you need do a Clean all & full format.

Do a full clean & full format in command prompt.
1) Boot DVD & Press Shift+F10 (for command prompt)
DISKPART : At PC Startup
2) Boot DVD, & Command Prompt at Startup

Hello.  Got this laptop this past Christmas, unfortunately has never worked very well.  Since I bought it, it's had this problem where every time I close the laptop and reopen it, the task bar disappears and the trackpad is unuseable.  I have to manually restart it to get it to work again.  I disabled sleep mode and still this problem would occur.  Then suddenly the trackpad stopped working altogether.  I have to plug in a USB mouse to use this laptop now.  I updated all drivers (including trackpad) and still I cannot use the trackpad.  Windows 10 is also fully updated.  I did not change anything in the control panel so am not sure why it suddenly stopped working.  I am attaching a picture I took showing the problem.  This is after opening up the laptop, you can see the taskbar has disappeared and screen is incorrect resolution.Honestly, this laptop is very disappointing and I'm frustrated that I got it.  I have a newborn at home so spending time on this is really annoying/difficult.  I hope very much that there is an easy fix here.  Please help.  ThanksKC

Hello guys,

so.. I started using Bluetooth a while ago, using the Internet via cable.. Today I wanted to use my WLan again, but it didn't worked (worked good before).
So I tried to activate it via FN+F8, but all I can see is activating Bluetooth, so the one for WLan disappeared?
The WiFi LED is only flashing when Bluetooth is on. I'd rather disable Bluetooth than not being able to use WLan.

I believe it's a similar problem as
but I really didn't want to install a wrong driver or anything.

I'm using a Vista 32-bit and my PC-Tool said I'm using these Networks currently (I just copy and pasted since I honestly have no idea, hahaha).
Realtek RTL8102E Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0) Version=6.208.729.2008 MAC-Adresse=00:23:5A:05:61:05
Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN Version= MAC-Adresse=00:21:5D:62:D8:1C

I'd so happy if anyone could help me fix the problem anytime soon, since I really need the Wireless capability soon. Thank you :)

Answer:Satellite A350 can't use WLan anymore

do you have try this from MASTERG?s post?


The FN + F8 would not work if there is a WLan driver problem.
So would recommend doing this:

First of all remove AC adaptor and battery.
Press Power button 30 sec long
Then connect both parts again.
Now power up the unit and press F2 to access the BIOS
Set BIOS to default pressing F9 and save changes pressing F10
Access the BIOS boot up the Windows OS
Now download the compatible WLan driver (I guess its Intel WiFi 5100AGN)

After installation of Wlan driver, install the Value Added Package and Flash Card Support Utility.
Reboot the notebook and try to enable Wlan again."

Ok so here is the problem, a month and a half ago the laptop wouldn't turn on, it goes and gets fixed and the power supply wasn't returned, today we finally receive the power supply (which caused 1 month of the waiting).

So I plug it up and everything goes on fine and dandy, however the laptop will not receive an Internet connection and it says that the wireless LAN is disabled, the laptop is a Presario v6000 Compaq which has a button on the front of the laptop which enables and disabled the wireless LAN, the button is currently set to enabled however the button is jammed on enable and it has an Amber light, so I can't turn it on and off. I went to device manger then network adapters and acording to that, the WLAN is enabled but the laptop is telling me it's disabled!

is there any way I can fix this? or will it have to get sent away again?

I hope the question makes sense, I'm only 16 so I'm not the best when it comes to computers, I also badly need the laptop fixed because I need it for school and I am currently posting this question using my iPhone.

Answer:Laptop says WLAN is disabled, device manager says WLAN is enabled!

Well, if the button isn't toggling the wireless state, you may have to send it away again. What do you mean the button is "jammed"?

The brother-in-law has given me an old (not working) Vaio laptop. On checking I found it was only a 'dicky' HDD which I have replaced and installed Mint Maya (13) 32 bit. All works well except for video (You Tube etc). I'm using Firefox as browser of preference although I've tried Opera with the same result. Installed version of Flashplayer is, also tried an earlier version (mint-flashplugin-10.2 version through Package Manager but web pages won't allow it. On installation I was informed of updated Nvidia driver but after install only got a blank screen so re-installed original. This is an old piece of kit (2003 I think):-

Hello -

Several months ago, I decided that I wanted to dual boot Windows 7 and Linux Mint 17 because I was taking the Free Linux class that was posted about.
I never even finished the class. I decide very early on that Linux is not for me. I want to be able to click an executable and install programs.
I dont want to compile them, etc. It took me over an hour just to get my printer working and that is after I had to manually edit some config file to add the IP address in. TOO MUCH WORK.

I would now like to get rid of linux and reclaim the space for my Windows install. I do not want to have to reinstall or anything like that.
I have a 512 GB SSD and I think it is divided in 1/2. I have a boot menu that starts when I turn on the computer. It allows me to pick Windows, Linux, Recovery mode or MemTest.

Please advise on the steps to perform this.
I would be willing to image the windows partition and clone it to a new 512 SSD and then wipe the original and use it as a data drive.
I can not remember if I have anything stored on the linux portion that I would like to keep.
I haven't used it in so long that I don't think I remember the PW for it. If the clone and reinstall is the best option, please recommend a program to use.
The computer is an HP Elitebook 8560W with and I7, 32 gigs of ram and a dream color panel.

Answer:Dual booting Win Xp and Linux Mint 17. Want Linux gone.

Is it XP or Win7? To get rid of the Linux boot menu use fixmbr command.

Scroll down to the correct OS and follow the instructions.

After that go to disk management in Windows and expand the windows partion to reclaim the Linux partition, assuming Linux is on the second partition of the ssd.

I recently dusted off my OLD computer with windows 95 and installed some old games just for fun. I'd like to also use it as a print server, so it needs to be hooked up to my network. I had it working just fine - it could see all the other computers and browse the internet just fine. Then I restarted it and the network no longer works, it's like it's completely unplugged.

When the network was working it would ask me to log on every time it started up. Now that it's not working, it no longer asks me to log on. I tried deleting all the services/protocols and reinstalling them, didn't help.

Anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

Answer:Windows 95 network works one minute, but not the next

Possiblely the nic is bad, or the cable. If possible i would upgrade to at least 98, 95's networking was pretty shitty. If you have another nic i would try to replace it and get the latest drivers, and or swap out your patch cable.

Curious problem....

Brand-new computer, Sony VAIO P4 3.0 Ghz, 512 mb RAM, Win XP Home, NVIDIA GeForce FX5600 video...

I have been trying this last week now to get the screen saver function to work properly. I can set it up with the saver I want which is My Pictures Slide Show, and it previews fine. It even starts and runs properly, so long as I select one minute as the time interval before screen saver activation. Any other time setting results in no screen saver activation.

I have experimented rather extensively. This system came with Norton (Symantec) antivirus which unfortunately does not seem to be the root problem as I have turned it off (both the Norton Internet Security and the Anti-Virus Auto protect functions) with no apparent difference noted.

I am fairly well acquainted with the mechanics of enabling or disabling screen savers and APM settings. When I have tried disabling the screen saver and instead enabling the "turn off monitor" and/or "turn off hard drive" functions the computer waits the appropriate time and the monitor turns off for a brief second and then turns right back on. Nothing else is running to my knowledge when this occurs.

For what it's worth, my monitor is a ViewSonic 18" LCD unit so I might not even should be worrying about screen-saving, although it is rather nice to scroll through some 3500 digital photos (that we never really take the time to look at as much as we should) when nothing else is being done with ...

If the hard drive is easily accessible and not in a tray just buy another and swap them out as needed or buy another tray too. That's what I did with my work laptop. Takes all of 10 seconds to swap drives.

In Dec 2003 another person had the exact same problem as me with a screen saver that only worked in the 1 minute mode. The reply involved messing with the time value settings in the registry but the link did not apply to Win XP. Even if it did, registry tampering is beyond my ability. Also suggested was to disable all the programs in the startup menu. I don't know what that would show unless they are done one at a time and then what? Delete a program? I'm hoping someone has found a solution by now that is something I can do. Thanks.

Answer:Screen saver only works @ 1 minute interval

Do you have the Windows XP CD?

Earlier today I set a some videos to convert and I when I returned the computer was off and the front LED's were flashing. I restarted the computer and there was a loud whirring noise from the graphics card as if it had overheating. After the restart the computer lasted around a minute before the display went off, the fans and LED's were still on but there was no video output. I restarted a number of times but the same thing happened.

I then tried putting another graphics card in the computer but the same thing happened. I then booted the computer in Safe mode and everything works fine. This then lead me to think that this was a software issue rather than a hardware issue.

I then put the hard drive in another computer and everything has been working fine so it must be a hardware issue? The video seems to cut off after the same amount of time each boot, is there some driver/service that is causing something to fail?

I am a bit unsure what to do next?

Any help would be appreciated,


Answer:No display after a minute, works in safe mode.


Do check for GPU temps. Clean out any dust from it. For checking the temps, you can use MSI Afterburner.

Download the latest drivers for the card from AMD webiste. Remove the old drivers. Reboot in safe mode and run Driver sweeper (you have to download this before you uninstall the drivers). This small utility will remove leftovers of the old driver. Reboot to normal mode and then install the latest driver. Reboot again and check.

Keep us posted.

Hello, Few days ago I bought a new Lenovo 510-15IKB. I followed manual and plugged charger to activate acumulators, etc. I've installed Windows 10 (I did all updates) and all attached drivers directly from lenovo website. Everything is ok, but It's impossible to run laptop without charger plugged in. Battery is loaded to 89%. I am pressing power button but nothing happens, only small power led light starts to shine. But nothing starts, only way to turn off this led light is to press and hold power button. I hope it's not serious and exists some simple solution. Could you help me ? Thank you in advance.I would like to ask You about help before I go to service. I do not want to make a fool of myself because it could be nothing serious and what is more I can fix it on my own.

Answer:Computer hangs for over 1 minute when booting

Check your bios settings very carefully in comparison to the equipment you are running. You may have an incorrect setting that is causing the delay.

Hi everyone,A few days ago, I suddenly couldn't update AVG anymore. It always gives me an error, telling me the connection with the server failed. I also noticed that I can't connect Limewire (P2P program) anymore and opening movie streams in Windows Media Player doesn't work anymore either.I searched some forums for a solution and I found someone with a similar problem, who also told he couldn't execute the "cmd" and "regedit" commands anymore. I tried it on my own computer and I can't run those things anymore either. When I try executing them, the explorer goes all weird and shuffles the program bars on the task bar.I've manually downloaded the latest updates for AVG, installed them and did a full scan, that didn't find a thing. I also ran AdAware, which said I had some malware, which I removed with it. Then I also ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, which found some more malware, so I removed it, rebooted my pc, but the problems still exist...I'm hoping someone can help me with this problem, because it's really anoying...Here's my HijackThis log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 20:37:26, on 11/05/2009Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16827)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\At...

Hey guys,

I have a Sony Vaio VPCEH15EN laptop & the OS is Windows 7 home basic. I have a wifi router which is of TPLINK.

The wifi won't connect to my laptop but it works fine on my would only start working when I use the ethernet cable. I never had this problem before. I have tried everything ..I also tried the winsockfix.bat but all my efforts have gone in vain..I just don't know if the wifi router is faulty or the modem of my ISP...Please help me solve this problem.

Best Regards,

Answer:Wifi on my laptop won't work but works when I use the ethernet cable

I have solved the problem by myself. To do this, first you have to disconnect your Ethernet cable from your laptop and follow the steps: Start>Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Manage Wireless Networks and remove all wireless connections by right click on it and select Remove network from the drop down menu. After doing this, close the windows and scan for the Wi-Fi networks. Click on the available network and select connect. After a while, you will be asked to give a password for your Wi-Fi connection. Type the password and click on connect button. And now will be connected to your Wi-Fi network via wireless.

May be it will help you.

Hi. . . I'm getting kinda frustrated. I hope I'm posting in the right forum.

Anyway, the external monitor: LG flatron L1943PE (it's really old )
The laptop in question: Samsung. Model--RV411

I don't think it's a problem with the monitor because when I connect it to my netbook, it detects automatically (when I turn on my netbook it uses the monitor). When I connect my Samsung laptop, it displays \

When I disconnect it it simply says "Check Signal Cable"

I'm not sure what information is necessary, but I'd really appreciate any help.

Hello, I've had this problem with my laptop display for about half a year. When the laptop starts, the backlight turns on, but there is no display of Windows. When connected to an external monitor or projector, this displays the image with no problem. Thus, my question is: if my GPU and backlight are working, what component is causing the problem and how can I fix it? It is worth mentoning that sometimes on start up the display came back to life, and then if no shutdown or battery depletion occured, it would function normally. However, if the battery ran out, the problem came back (since I very often just put the laptop on sleep, this system functioned for a while...) Then, a couple of weeks ago this happened again, and the display hasn't worked since. I am now working with an external monitor.  Looking forward to your answers. Many thanks, Stefania

Hi, this is my first post here so i hope u´ll go nice on me

My private network is configured like this, ADSL ISP -> Fedora Core server/router -> switched network to one linux workstation and my win/Suse workstation.. As i bought a nokia N95 mobile and also got a free Zyxel Wifi router from my ISP i thought that i´ll set up the wlan now. But thinks aint working as planed, ie not working at all.

i use static ip troughout my LAN, , and i connected the zyxel to the switch after my linux server , configurating it like my computers with static ip. ie, gateway as the linux router and DNS as my ISP uses. For a test to see if i got out trough the server i conf. the LANpart in the router to, since the WAN and LAN are reprecent seperat NIC this shouldnt be a problem? anyhow it didnt work, and neither did the WLAN.

i read in some article that u need to use subnet to get this to work but i have a hard time beliving that. also, is there a way i can reach the LAN trough the WiFi?, i only want it as an access point in part of the excisting LAN but thats maybe impossible with WLAN routers?
please give me some tips on configuration, my head is acheing and i cant think clearly

Answer:Setting up WLAN behind Linux server/router

Disable DHCP in the router and connect it you your LAN on one of its LAN ports (not WAN port). It will act as just an access point now.

I have a T42 coming my way. For my plans with this system, I can eliminate needing a spare hdd if I can simply run the linux VMWare w/ a Windows XP or Server 2003 image.

Right now, my plans were to be running XP Pro w/ VMWare XP/2003 image, and doing most of my work in the VMWare image(running FTP tasks, etc.) on the 40gb it comes with, and use a 20 for Ubuntu.
But, if I can run Ubuntu on the 40, and re-use the images I already have set up, I can save myself a lot of time and effort.
Does anyone know if a pre-existing image made on a Windows machine will transfer and operate properly if used in Linux's VMWare?

Answer:Want to move to Ubuntu Linux; do VMWare machines made in Windows work in Linux?

Yes. VM machines created in Windows will work fine in Linux vmware enivronment. And the vice versa is true as well.

Hello. I'm having a rather incredible problem with Windows 8 Pro. Sometimes, after booting, my notebook's keyboard doesn't work at all. Some facts about all this to inform the diagnosis:
The keyboard doesn't work in Windows; it does in the UEFI bios. (Ie I boot to windows and it doesn't work, I then reboot, test it in the bios and see that it works; I go back to windows and it still doesn't work there.)
It happens randomly: maybe once every ?5? boot ups. Definitly not always.
**I think** (but aren't sure) that it only happens when booting, not when coming back from hibernation or sleep.
Unplugging the battery or the power cord doesn't help.
I'm fairly careful about malware and I don't think it's related. I don't have any malware protection other than Windows'.
The System section of the Event Viewer only has one apparently relevant event, "The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device ROOT\WPD\0000.". Notice this is related to a Logitec input driver, and I'm having trouble with the notebook's built-in keyboard. I never plugged a Logitec keyboard (but I did use a Logitec mouse in the past).
Nevertheless I acted upon that event log. Some pages elsewhere (The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device... error - Windows 7 Help Forums) suggested changing the Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework from Manual (triggered) to automatic. It didn't help.
It has always solved itself after a random amount of time (from a few minutes to an hou... Read more

Answer:Windows 8: keyboard laptop randomly doesn't work after booting

Some additional info:

I just completed a run of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and found nothing except for 4 autohotkey .bin files that seem ok for the rest of the AVs at virustotal.
Nothing relevant seems to be logged in the System log when the keyboard comes back up.

In the past six months my computer has been infected with both AV Security Suite and ThinkPoint. Using the tools on this website, I have removed the malware/viruses but I am still having problems and could use some help.

I have read and followed the instructions in the Read and Run Me First and XP Cleaning Procedure threads and will attach my scan logs in this and a second message.

Basically, a quick recap. After removing AV Security Suite several months ago, the computer seemed to work fine until ThinkPoint arrived. I followed the steps outlined to remove it but after doing so the computer lost the ability to connect to the internet and had a very slow startup procedure (about 30 minutes) before applications would run. After the slow startup, everything seemed to work (except internet connections ie7 and firefox). I stopped turning the computer off because after hibernation the startup was not delayed and used my desktop when I needed to use the internet (my laptop was the infected computer with continuing issues, my desktop did not have the infections described above).

I finally got some time to deal with this and have been able to restore the internet connection on my laptop using Winsockxpfix. But I still have the slow startup issue and I get a popup message during startup as follows:


Error loading C:\Windowst32rvcr.dll

Hello, I've got a weird error with my internet connection today. Suddenly, the internet connection on my desktop went offline, while wifi still worked. I tried multiple things, like restarting, resetting, renewing factory settings, switching ports. Nothing worked. All LEDs on my modem are solid greed, except the DSL, which is solid orange. I tried to take a look in cmd - ipconfig /all on my laptop and copypaste it to the desktop, just changing the ipv4 address to x.x.x.2 from x.x.x.1, it didn't work either. I found a temporary solution - connecting the desktop and laptop with an ethernet cable and bridging the connection, which seems to work fine right now.
