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.)

The fine folks over at Hardware Secrets are pretty well known for their excellent reviews of different hardware, including power supplies. They are one of the few sites that really knows how to test a power supply. There is MUCH more to it than hooking up a digital multimeter to a spare molex connector and then running an assortment of load/idle tests and recording the output from the multimeter. Most sites will not test the noise and ripple in a PSU (and "noise" here does not mean the sound from the fan, it means "line noise"; a decent metaphor would be "static"). I recently read a review where the testing uses only a voltmeter, and the reviewer states the power supply had a bit more ripple than he would like to see. :confused Without an oscilloscope, it is impossible to measure ripple, so it would appear that the reviewer is talking out his a** and has no idea what "ripple" really means or what it is. This review can be found here, the "ripple" comment is on page 5, on page 6 you'll see the PSU received a "Top Rank Award". However, Hardware Secrets reviewed this same power supply (review is here), and you'll see that it miserably failed the ripple/noise testing, and in fact the unit burned up when trying to draw the advertised 750w the unit is rated for. Yet the other reviewer gave it a "Top Rank Award". So- all ranting aside, do not trust any power supply review that doesn't include '... Read more

Answer:Power Supply Reviews - Why 99% of online reviews are WRONG!!!


Good report except that setting a voltmeter to AC and measuring a DC voltage will give you a reading of the AC component (Ripple) riding on the DC.

Answer:guys i have recently updated my nokia L520 den after it my phone starts up and den shows nokia n

I just answered something similar on another thread. You can go through this.
You can try to soft reset first.
Volume down and power button until the phone vibrates. Phone will restart if it works.
Otherwise -
This is from the support site -
The problem you are experiencing may be caused by a software problem on your phone. You will need to perform a factory reset to try and resolve the problem.
Please note: All information on your phone will be deleted and anything that has not been backed up will be lost during this process. If you cannot access your phone's menu, unfortunately you will not be able to back-up any data.
Make sure your phone is powered off.
Press and hold the 'volume down' button.
Press the 'power' button until the phone vibrates, then release the 'power' button.
Keep the 'volume down' button held until you see an '!' on the screen, then release the 'volume down' button.
When the '!' appears, press the following buttons in order:
'volume up'
'volume down'
'volume down'
You should see rotating gears on your screen for around 5 minutes.
Your display will then turn blank for 30 seconds while your phone restarts.
It will take several minutes for your phone to restart. Once your phone has restarted you will need to follow the on-screen instructions and complete the initial set-up process on your phone.

Hi there,

i would like to use GPS Navigation with my Nokia 6600 via Bluetooth GPS (Model Royaltek GPS x-Mini).
Prior usage i've to install the software on the MMC-Card of the mobile Phone via Nokia PC Suite (for Nokia 6600).

For BT i'm using the Toshiba SD Card 2 within Portege.

With the Toshiba Bluetooth Manager (3.20.01) i can discover and establish a serial connection via BT without problems.

When starting the Nokia PC Suite (that automatically "see's" the new BT Port ...) the connection failes.

Any idea ? Thanks ...

Answer:Portege R100 + BT SD Card 2 + Nokia 6600 with Nokia PC Suite ? NO CONNECT !


Unfortunately I can not give you a proper answer. The fact is that the Bluetooth works properly and notebook can communicate with the unit. Why the connection fails after starting Nokia PC suite is not easy to say.

In my opinion you should try to contact Nokia support. They have more experience with own software products and it is probably tested by Nokia. If you have a solution please let us know.

Good luck!

Hi,I bought this Nokia Lumia 820 in Jan,2013 from Chennai,India.After 6 months I faced some issues like low battery life and also a line at the center of the screen.So I went to Nokia Care, Taramani, Chennai-India,they told me that they will send it to their head office and may take a week time.I agreed and went back on the desired date .Then they told that Company has decided to give me a new Lumia 820 instead of my old Lumia 820 as they were not able to get the accurate solution.But the warranty will be carry forward.I agreed and came back home.From then onwards, I didn't faced any issues.Now after 2 years,I broke my LCD of same Lumia 820 accidentally in San Francisco,CA-USA.I went to one of the repair center here and the first question he asked me was "Did anybody tried to open it?".I replied no after in Chennai,India and that too was new.To my shock he said "It's a fake copy ...the screws were stripped."They cheated and gave me used phone instead of my new phone.
Is this the way they are cheating customers.
I need an answer for this from Nokia India.

Answer:Fraud:Nokia Care ,Chennai have given me fake copy of Nokia Lumia 820 after I faced some issues. What do I do?

I refurbished phone isn't a fake phone. It's a refurbished phone.
I don't know about international, but in the US, its common to get a refurbished phone as an exchange.

Hi guys, greetings from Nairobi. I've had my Nokia Lumia 620 for a little over 6 months now. I was on 8.1 through the developer's preview. So I was just sitting there, hadn't used my phone for around 15 minutes. When I checked the phone, it was stuck on the Nokia screen. I assumed that it was restarting so I left it for a couple more minutes. It's been on the screen for around 5 hours. I have tried the soft and hard reset several times but still nothing works. I'm still stuck on the Nokia screen and the device is not detected when I plug it on the laptop through the USB cable. Seen a couple of videos on using Navifirm but can't do much because the device isn't being detected. Hoping I won't have to take it to the care center. Anything else I can try? Looking forward to your responses. Much thanks.
By hard resetting I followed the following steps:
Turn off the Lumia,
Pressed and held the Power Button, did not release until the phone vibrates.
Pressed and held the Volume Down Button, did not release until the LCD showed the exclamation mark.
Pressed Volume Up Button Key and released
Pressed Volume Down Button Key and released
Pressed Power Button Key and released
Pressed Volume Down Button Key and released.
The soft reset was simply power button and volume down button.
I should also point out that the USB cable I'm using isn't the one that I got the phone with :) lost that one.
Thanks guys.:)

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 620 has been stuck on the Nokia startup screen for 5 hours now.

Try a different cable and use Nokia Care Suite to reset the phone, you will lose everything on the phone but it should reset it to factory settings. You will then probably need to get it updated via Developer preview again...good luck.

Windows and android started a new beginning in 2011
Windows phone 7x
Android 2.3
So in that beginning time why apps developer went to develop apps for android not for Windows phone?
. . . . . . . .
Because If in the beginning itself developer would have decided to go with windows phone instead of android.
Than today's image of widows would be different.
. . . . . . . .
Than why developer went with android not with windows to develop huge n classy apps .
Is there any term n condition by MS/Nokia for app development which Google didn't forced on apps designers?
Does MS/nokia harmed itself by putting their T&C which Google left n pulled the developers attention to do job freely.??
Hope you'll understand what exactly I wanna ask?

Answer:MS/NOKIA VS ANDROID. Does Ms/Nokia made mistake in the past for which they paid.

What was it about Android that started with 2.3 that marks it as a "new beginning"? Google Play started way back in 2008, they had a full 3 years worth of commerce and sharing the market with Apple before Windows Phone 7 came along.

The footage was no where to be found, not in my camera roll, not in any of the folders and not on my onedrive. I thought I must have made a mistake so I took about 10 seconds of footage as a test and it saved fine. I also turned my phone on and off. This morning my friend tried to record about 4 minutes of footage, and again, afterwards- the same thing.. no where to be found :( Any suggestions?

I've read some similar (but not identical issues) on the forum. Hopefully someone can assist.
My phone battery went dead while using GMAPS which ate up the battery very quickly.
Been trying to charge it for hours, but all I get is a flashing WINDOWS symbol at the bottom of the phone, then the NOKIA logo appears about every 30 seconds, but then nothing else happens.
Tried pressing the POWER OFF and VOLUME BUTTON simultaneously for extended periods, but no joy.
I have too much stuff on the phone to do a hard reset, and I'm on the road, so kind of in need in a quick and easy solution that doesn't affect my data (if one exists).

Answer:Windows 10 Nokia Lumia 930 - NOKIA logo flashes up, but does not boot

Maybe the device is on a reboot loop somehow, when you try to charge it keeps on trying to reboot but fails because the battery is out of enough power to finish the boot.
Leave the device connected to the charger for a while as the device is deeply discharged then try the soft reset combo power off and volume button.

I would be interested in the movie maker from Nokia on RT......any chance?

Answer:Microsoft and Nokia deal....did MS licence any of the Nokia apps?

This is a really interesting question. I'm not sure whether MS bought out Nokia's apps to be honest. I know the main crux of the deal is hardware related but I'm sure its been discussed how Nokia's exclusivity on their apps will most likely be dissolved, which can't be a bad things for the platform, as Nokia's apps really do stand out among the crowd. No matter if it's Nokia that's developing them or if it's MS developing them, as long as they do keep getting updated I think we're in a good position.

Dear Gurus, First, I apologize if there is a mobile phone forum elsewhere
I seem to have got into a chicken and egg situation.

Using Nokia PC suite for file transfer from PC to Nokia 7520 supernova, my problem is the bluetooth works but the USB cable CA-126, doesn't!

Nokia PC suite can communicate with my nokia 7510 supernova using bluetooth which is painfully slow.

Nokia PC suite doesn't seem to find the mobile when I use the CA-126 cable for a USB connection.

Suspecting something wrong with USB I checked the XP USB hardware and got a list of 4;
generic USB CF reader USB device
generic USB MS reader USB device
generic USB SD reader USB device
generic USB SM reader USB device

According to XP the above are all working correctly.

I did note that when PC suite was installing it mentioned USB2. Using freshdevices, it lists
as part of the installed drivers
system32\drivers\usbport.sys description usb 1.1 and 2.0 driver

I tried to run 'driver whiz'. it sticks when it is listing and comes to generic sm usb reader.

Which leaves me where I started.

My only consolation, printer, scanner, mouse, webcam, all with usb connections work perfectly.

Help if possible to get me cable connected 7520 to PC

Bye and thanks

Answer:BSOD while Flashing Nokia Phone Using Nokia Suite

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions Please use Option 1 as it provides Event Viewer logs. Make sure that you let the app run for at least 15 minutes (or until the app itself says that it's done).

The first step here is to check in Device Manager for the xHCI controller. If you find that it has errors, right click on it and select "Uninstall". If presented with a check box to delete the driver software, please check it. Then click on the "OK" box to remove it.
Reboot and see if the xHCI device still has problems. If not, wait to see if the system BSOD's. Finally, let us know what happens.

Update the drivers for your HSPADataCard USB Modem/Serial Device to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version. Your HSPADataCardusbnmea.sys driver dates from 2011 and is likely not compatible w/Win8.1

Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

The drivers that are struckout don't have updates available (AFAIK).

The downloading and installation works perfectly but then it immediately says that it's not recognizing my Nokia Lumia Phone! They say elsewhere that there is a special app for the Lumia but this app is limited to music, pictures, videos, podcasts and
ringtones. So contacts, the most important for a Phone, is not even included. There are surely other makes where this is possible and where you can easily see and manage all contacts. On which cellphones this Nokia Suite is really working then?

Answer:Why can't I access my Nokia account to my phone Nokia N8?

Nokia has been going through some changes lately. They are uncoupling things that were synced between hardware and software.
The support pages for N8 are now under the Microsoft umbrella as part of the buy up of Nokia hardware divisions. I'd start there: Nokia N8-00 - Support, Updates, Downloads and User Guides, Troubleshooting - Microsoft - UK
At a guess... Your Nokia Account log in is no longer valid on that phone because of the transition. Have you tried logging into your Nokia Account via PC browser? Have you tried the Ovi Store on PC?
You could try establishing a Microsoft Account (or use an existing one) and try to sync that on the phone...
My Nokia Account log in is still good, but I've long had it linked to a Microsoft Account. I also see Microsoft has taken ownership of Ovi...

Hello, I bought a Nokia Lumia 520 a while back (About two years ago or something i'm not too sure) It was perfectly fine until all of the sudden I couldn't hear anything apart from Ringtones (Couldn't listen to songs, couldn't hear people when calling etc) after messing around with the phone it turned out to be the earbud jack (can't remember the correct word at the moment) anyhow, I fixed it by basically shoving a tooth pick in it. So i'm like okay fine. But recently the phone got stuck in Airplane mode, I tried literally everything apart from going to the store to get it fixed because my warranty ran out and i'm not going to pay for this piece of crap. So, today I tried the "Windows Phone Recovery Tool", I let it do its thing while I take a shower but when I came back it was stuck on the red Nokia title screen. Unplugged the battery, re-connected it with my PC, pressed the Volume down button etc. Nothing works! And when it's plugged into the PC, the Windows Recovery Tool says "Acces is Denied. Verify Credentials"
So yeah. I am furious. I have never, ever had so many problem with a phone before..

Answer:Can I get some help with my Nokia Lumia 520 (Red Nokia Title Screen)(8.1)?

1. Calm down ( you gotta have patience while working with gadgets )
2. You shouldn't shove things other than the hp jack into the hp port.
3. Airplane mode ? (tried going to settings and trying to disable it or remove the sim and put it back in / restart ?? )
4. That "Red Nokia Tile Screen" you saw was the firmware download screen.
5. One does not simply don't pull out a phone while its undergoing firmware loading.
6. Try with Windows Phone Recovery Tool again. (This time wait ... and have patience.)
7. The only and last solution is Lumia Software Recovery Tool. Be patient !

I wish i hadn't installed that damn windows 10 in the first place.

Answer:nokia lumia 635 red screen with nokia logo.

When my phone begins to boot up, it crashes a couple seconds after the nokia logo pops up. Also, I don't think that the software is telling the hardware to charge the battery correctly because it has been charging for several hours but when detached from a charger, it immediately dies.
When on the charger, I tried a soft reset by holding the power button and volume down keys for 10-15 seconds which was ineffective I also tried a hard reset by holding the power button until the nokia screen appears, then holding the volume down button for the exclamation mark to appear but it shuts down before this happens.
Other notes: It shows the flashing icon light when on the charger and at times tries to boot up but when at the nokia screen shuts down.

Answer:Why is my nokia lumia 925 crashing at the nokia screen?

Hi, I had a similar problem. First I thought it was the battery, until I eventually figured out that it was the motherboard. Changing it won't be easy, so take it to a shop

Nokia 730 is finally available in India and it looks to be the best bet in the mid range segment. My Nokia Lumia 720 just broke (the display gave up finally after having a broken screen for over months). The only reason for me to not go away from Nokia is the Mix Radio and the unlimited downloads with subscriptions. The question is whether I would get the free or paid subscriptions for Mix Radio when I buy this device. (esp given that Mix Radio is spinning off and the renewal subscriptions are not available in India at this time)

Answer:Would I get the Nokia Mix Radio Subscription if I buy Nokia 730?

I have a nokia 200 with nokia music app preinstalled, I not activated yet, can I use its free subscription on my Lumia 720's mix radio app. My Lumia's mix radio free subscription has been finished. Please reply soon asap.

Answer:Nokia mixRadio account of nokia 200

You can have a music subscription which is linked to your account activated on only one phone at a time.
If you have a voucher from your Nokia 200, you can use that voucher code to renew the subscription on your Lumia 720.
If you didn't get a voucher code, and you just have to sign in on your Nokia 200 to activate the subscription, then you can't use it on your Lumia 720.
If you want, you sign out of mix radio on your 720, and then sign in on you Nokia 200 using the same username as you did on the Lumia.

It's incredibly long( you need to take 4 separate pictures), yet the width is only 1/10th of the overall length!
When compared to competitor panaromas, its like three separate pictures, but the actual width is much thicker.
I'm trying to have high resolution pics uploaded on fb, and its such a bother trying to upload these panorama shots that just end up looking tiny if I follow this rule by facebook:
I have to manually edit ALL nokia pictures to 2048 for the largest single dimension on gimp before uploading on facebook.. But as soon as I do that(edit on gimp) for the length of a 9622X1094 panoramic picture, the width ends up even tinier, and it doesn't look great.. what would I do in this situation? This is my only real issue with the app.

Use Photosynth instead.

Hi All,

I created this thread as an FAQ for the release of the new AVG 8. I thought we could use this for any discussions or issues about the new release. Here is what is known so far:

1.) It is unknown as to whether or not AVG 7.5 users will be automatically updated to AVG 8, although a comment on the board said they didn't think an auto update pushed will be forced.

2.) It has been known to be buggy and slow according to some of the C-Net reviews. This could be the sign of a new release or hopefully not a bad omen of what is to come from a once-great company.

3.) There are 3 versions of AVG 8.0:

a.) AVG Anti-Virus 8.0 Commercial Version: This is a paid version that includes Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Resident Shield, Root Kit Remover Real Time Protection with a Link Scanner that scans sights before you go to them and a Link Search, that indicates the safety of a sight before you go to them similar to McAfee Sight Adviser.

b.) AVG Internet Security 8.0: A paid version with all the features of (a) plus a software firewall

c.) AVG Anti-Virus Free 8.0: The free version that includes Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware scanning and the Link Search (Site Adviser clone)

Please indicate in this thread: (Discuss each that applies to you.)

1.) The version of AVG 8 you have installed.

2.) Any problems with the download or installation

Question: AntiVirus Reviews?

I can't find timely or even common Anti-Virus Reviews.

They used to be more common, more timely. In years past, it seemed there were dozens of sites offering tests and reviews, almost on a monthly basis, and certainly quarterly. Then, of course, there was the issue of validity, consumer trusting of those reviews, etc, but the sheer quantity of reviews gave credence to some products.

In the past year, however, I see fewer and fewer websites offering AV tests. Perhaps the perception of "everyone's doing it" led more and more reviewers to stop their own efforts?

Do you have a set of favorite AV review sites?

On a side note, a good many reviews seldom listed the useful feature of "Product offers downloadable ISO for a boot-up scan process." I greatly prefer the products that offer this, most of whom seem to do at least a monthly update of their ISO file. (It's not that I believe every Virus will be cured, but I am still old-school enough to believe that pre-boot 'cures' offer some cures that post-boot fixes can't.)

Answer:AntiVirus Reviews?

Not unless you want to buy, and change, your antivirus every month. The best changes and common sense and any decent anti-virus is all you need.

Avast, AVG, Panda Cloud for example are solid.

Now my question is where can I find out which site has the fewest problems? I know that mostly only people who have had problems will bother to post, so I'm trying to take that into account.

Is Cyberpower really as awful as the reviews would indicate? I had configured a great system there but the reviews said that MANY of their systems were dead on arrival. At least one review said they had replaced the chosen parts with cheap subsitutes. (specifically the mother board and chip)

would this board with 2 x matched 256M 333 memory, be able to provide the graphics to play my boys games, they are into gaming and have XBOX etc, they also have PCgames.

or must i get a graphics card and if so, which other motherboard should I get that does not have built in graphics?

I have also looked at the MSI 865PE-Neo2 LISR2 but this combo is expensive and starts to put the system outside my budget

Answer:MSI K7N2G reviews

You can get an MSI or ASUS motherboard for about $80~100 without onboard video. Then spend $75 for a Ti4200-64mb if you want to do some serious gaming.

The onboard 3D video on the NForce2 will play 2001 games and older pretty good. The Ti4200 will allow your kids to play UT2003, Unreal2 and Half Life 2 fairly good... without a lot of money.

I have tryed the usual (google, computer world, network world, Cnet, etc), but so far I have come up with nothing useful!

I appreciate the help!

Answer:Cisco PIX 501 Reviews?

Reviews like that are probably going to pretty hard to find. Your best bet is probably going to be looking at a round-up of enterprise/smb-class firewalls and getting data about the PIX from there. It specifically has to be a 501? There are little differences between the 501 and other PIX units running 6.x code other than hardware and license limitations, and you dont need a "review" to figure that out.

Is this for a university class?

Here's what I found on google, seems more like a sales pitch than an honest review:

I know you said you couldn't do it...but I could answer almost anything about the 501 (and be honest about it). If you are allowed to do an interview let me know and I can give you my credentials. The 501 is a good unit, but it has its limitations.

Answer:Can I get a few Lumia 535 reviews?

Hello, in my opinion you should go for Lumia 630. I saw on flipkart and 630 is cheaper than 530/535. Also had an better processor. Btw I'm not in India but looked up on flipkart for the info before I give my opinion. 530 has some screen issues but Microsoft is in the process of using an fix. Coming to hardware, there is no V3 or V5. Nokia/Microsoft releases handsets in number order (5xx,6xx,7xx,8xx,9xx,10xx and 15xx) where 9xx(920,925,928,930) I'd the flagship, 10xx(1020), is a camera phone and 15xx(1520) is an phablet. 7xx and 8xx are mid range phone and 5xx and 6xx are budget phone. Also none of the Windows phone lag and Windows phone OS is built for low end hardware and then scaled up depending the hardware. So you will never see lag on low end Windows phone like on Android. In conclusion, buy Nokia/Microsoft Lumia 630 if you can otherwise, buy Lumia 530/535. Good luck

I would be glad to hear it from your experties. 

Answer:Reviews on Hi-Fi 3D Technology>?

There are no real reviews out for the Biostar boards with this feature, but I would expect it to be much the same as previous boards with "Creative X-Fi" and similar - i.e. a cut down version of a good product making it no better than others, or in fact the same product with some fancy drivers and a new interface, which is still no better than others.Onboard sound is better than it used to be but still, IMO, no match for a good dedicated sound card.  Sound cards aren't exactly pricy, the Xonar DG or DGX starts from less than ?20 and is miles better than onboard.

I'm about to order a P50, and I've seen the terrible reviews for the FHD and UHD displays, but not a lot about the FHD touchscreen.  Does the touchscreen use a different display than the regular FHD model, or is it the same display with a capacitive sheet on top?

Hi wany

welcome to sevenforums

I have been running win 7 since december and I personally feel it substantially better than vista. Bugs in the early builds were video, raid, and some bios. by the time build 7100 came out most were resolved. If you gave us your computer specs we could tell you more.

Question: Printer Reviews

Does anyone know of a good website for printer reviews? Specifically I'm looking for ink usage, cartridge price and styles, basically what it's like to live with. The last thing I want to do is spend the money on a printer and accidently buy an Epson (Epson owners will know what I mean buy that comment).Before anyone posts a Google search of "printer review", I know how to do that. I'm looking for recommended places to go, people you think are right.

Answer:Printer Reviews

The internet is full of reports about ink costs.  At one lime  it was said that lasers printers were the best choice for high volume printing. But the initial cost of a laser is still too much for most of us home users. Personally, I have given up after I be owner of three or four laser printers.Inkjet printers are now as cheap as the could ever be. But the cost of ink is an issue. The standard cartridges are overprices and are not full of ink.Using refills costs the cost down, but is a hassle when you get  some bad  refiles.Your run the rest of doing harm to the printer.Here is recent report about popular printers. think the report is fair. And it is no surprise that Kodak gets special attention.
