"A device attached to the system is not functioning" If trying to login with a domain user who does not have admin rights

Question: "A device attached to the system is not functioning" If trying to login with a domain user who does not have admin rights

I am experiencing issues with my small domain setup. Windows Server 2012 R2 and windows 10 PRO domain attached PC's

Any users who are not a member of the Administrators group cannot login with their domain account (A device attached to the system is not functioning.) or access their file shares (invalid folder) even if they have been granted access to the file-shares.
However if I add them to the administrators group everything works fine with no issues.
I have not made any changes to group policy recently and have no idea what has changed to stop regular users from being able to do anything.

It is strange because there is nothing wrong with devices attached to the PC and the folders are definitely valid. It is all dependent on which account is trying to access.
Please let me know if you need further info.

Preferred Solution: "A device attached to the system is not functioning" If trying to login with a domain user who does not have admin rights

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 everybody,
I have a pretty serious problem, serious enough for me to create an account and post here. As listed in this post http://forums.techguy.org/virus-other-malware-removal/943214-everyone-must-read-before-posting.html I downloaded HijackThis and saved a log file (which is pasted lower) but every other program the post says to download will not open. DDS, GMER, ComboFix, and OTL all display an error message that states "A device attached to the system is not functioning". It only say this though with specific programs on my system. Panda Recovery for instance will not start and shows the error, but Malwarebytes and TDSS killer still work. Both however have not helped finding the a fix to my problem. Microsoft Security Essentials also found 2 potential threats that have made multiple attempts at infection. They are Exploit:Java/CVE-2011-3544.gen!A and TrojanDownloader:Java/Rexec.I This unfortunately is all the information I am able to give you guys. I hope someone here can help me with this.

Answer:Virus Causing Errors "A device attached to the system is not functioning."

The current state of my system is that Windows refuses to boot. Upon starting the computer I am taken to black screen with a blinking cursor. I have a back up disk that I can boot and attempt a system restore from. I don't know though if this is the correct choice of action. Should I run system restore to try to fix this?

I receive this error message in the Windows System log regularly. Device Manager does not show any malfunctioning devices.

Apparently csvol service is part of HFS+ for Windows. This is a program that allows reading of HFS+ file systems on Windows. I did install that.

And I believe these Event ID 7000 errors are related to a service failing to start. maxView Storage Manager Agent service will not start. It is set to 'automatic start' in the Services viewer app. However, I find that it is not started, and if I attempt to start it manually, I receive a message stating it started and then stopped, "Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs." That should not be the case with this service.

I can't use any applications as an admin on my Windows 10. A window pops up with the message above whenever I try to open the cmd or a game.

Answer:"A device attached to your system is not functioning"

Welcome to the forums Danidoodle!

Is this happening with ALL applications? Or just certain ones? All the time or just intermittently? What have you tried doing to fix it? Did this just start or has it been going on for awhile? A little more information would go a long way with helping us to help you. Some system spec.'s wouldn't hurt either.

If its just happening to say.... your optical drive have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for it? If its system wide have you tired a system file check? If it just started have you tried a system restore to a point when it was working?

Good day all,

I've done a quick search (here and google) but can't find a solution for the following:

Windows 8 pro: I have a user account with admin rights. It used to work fine till one day, after rebooting, I had no tiles in the start view. I ran chkdsk and it seems to have fixed the problem but now when I run any application as "Run as administrator" I get:
Windows cannot find '[The exe]'. Make sure you've typed the name correctly, then try again.

If, however, I run the same app as normal and it works - thus the exe exists and there is no problem with the app itself. (Also check in the file system)

If I create a new user with admin rights I get the same issue.

(The other old user with admin rights are working fine.)

Where do I start looking for the problem?

Answer:User with admin rights can't "Run as administrator" any mo

You could try running:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

&
sfc /scannow

Both need to be run in an administrator command prompt.

Both will take an hour maybe to finish.
Maybe half an hour each.

Hopefully a simple question for some. I have a user who currently does NOT have Admin rights, but I need to find out if they had admin rights in the passed. I.E Someone gave them the rights to do something and then removed them.

Basically we are having difficulty getting some software to work without Admin Rights to do the initial install, but i've been told its possible to install the software without Admin Rights but I can't see it. They tried to prove that they did it on one users machine ( who is working fine) but i'm convinced they must have given them Admin rights to do the install and then possibly removed them after.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:How do you tell if a user "had" Admin rights?

If the program was installed to Program Files folder, then you must have had admin rights to do so. Because that folder is not modifiable without the right.

There should be events logged in Event Viewer when the user was elevated to admin status.

Laptops on Windows 10 Pro seems to show this useless "Other User" option which is defaulted.

I manage the Networks for several companies remotely and not all users are computer friendly enough to know both their username and password, only their Password. So, when doing maintenance and I log on to a PC as an administrator or other user I will often
get a call the next day that their "password is not working" because it is using the last logged on user, which this time is me.

Is it possible in any way to set either a default domain user, or set it to a most often logged on model instead of the current last user or the alternative of prompting for user name every time?

Total novice here: I am hoping someone can give me some guidance. My brother-in-law was my computer man and he passed away recently. I may have just messed everything up and I have no one to help. My notebook, an Acer E1 series running Windows 10 without issue until today, slapped me with a black screen with a cursor and nothing else. (This happened while trying to close out of pretty heavy video game for the first time.) Restarting, the Acer logo came up, but then it went back to the black screen with cursor. Control+alt+delete did nothing. Sticky keys did nothing. I tried all diagnostics in the start screens. Automatic repair did nothing. I searched around and read that I could try running chkdsk and that brought up a lot of bad clusters. After that, I moved past the black screen to the login screen. Now, instead of having my username, it simply said Other User and had a blank login screen with "Sign in to: MYCOMPUTERNAME" below it. When I tried to log in using my username, I get stuck in a reboot loop. I could open in safe mode, but nothing else. I did a system refresh. Nothing changed. I mean, my programs are all gone, but outside of safe mode, it's still acting the same. I get to the login screen, OTHER USER, enter my username and password, hit enter, computer reboots. I just discovered if I don't enter my username, it eventually reboots anyway. Rinse. Repeat. Safe mode still works. Does anyone have any idea if I can do anything to fix it? I am moving... Read more

I am going 'round & 'round with this issue. I log on as limited user account for security. However, when I am on that acct, I cannot copy files to the external HP drive - I have to switch over to the admin user account to do so. In order to use the limited account for this operation, I have read that you should disable simple file sharing, (on admin acct), then rt clik on the file u want to copy - this then opens a menu with security tab where you are supposed to be able to give full control to the limited acct for that file. My admin acct that brings up this menu has those boxes to check grayed out. Also, do you have to rt click and give full permission for any file that you want to copy? (once you have this all figured out) - Seems a bit cumbersome. Any ideas anyone?? Thanks.

I have discovered that there is a difference between the original local "Administrator" account and my (local) admin account. For instance my admin account cannot add a new user, whereas "Administrator" can.

I absolutely do not want an MS online account - I want to have a local Admin account (not "Administrator" itself) but with the same rights as Administrator, for example being able to add a new user.

This was possible in previous versions of Windows - can it still be achieved and if so, how?

Answer:Give Local account with Admin rights, same access as "Administrator"?`

You need to add your new local account to the administrators group. To do this log in with your original Administrator account. Then open an elevated command prompt (right click on start and select Command Prompt (admin).

Then type: net localgroup administrators "UserName" /add

where UserName is the name of your new local account.

You can check which users belong to the various groups with these commands:
net localgroup guests
net localgroup users
net localgroup administrators

Hi, it looks lilke my modem (LAN and Wi-Fi) has died of old age with over-heating complications. So I got a USB dongle with works on the admin account, but not the Guest account. When I try to change its settings, this is what I get:

No options whatsoever. This is really frustrating because the admin account was supposed to be my "play" account while the Guest account was supposed to be my "work" account. So I have Google Gears (and an entire database of work connected to the browsers on the Guest account).

I tried moving my Google Gears files (using a flashdisk, by copying and pasting) from the Guest account to the admin account, but it didn't work. Now I'm on an approaching deadline and I can't access Google Gears from browsers on my Guest account because my USB dongle won't work on it. What can I do to make the dongle work on the Guest account?

This is a Windows 7 machine for a Linux guru that doesn't want to be bothered pressing more buttons than is necessary, if you get my drift.

So my question is, after pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del...how do I dictate to Windows that the preferred used is "HisDomainAccount" on our company domain, as opposed to the local admin account?

The above is a bit confusing. Is this computer joined to a work domain or is it not?

If this is a domain computer, the user will have to use the classic log on screen (Ctrl+Alt+Delete), not the Welcome Screen. If he wants to switch to logging in to the Local computer account and not the domain, he'll have to "Switch User" then log in with the format of Computername\User Name

befor in xp i used to have developer tools and was able to do pritty much anything i needed to do which was great

now with windows 7 if i want to install something i have to right click the exe and click "Run with admin rights(audited)"

now im trying to install some software for my G15 keyboard

i downloaded the installer and ran with admin rights
this gives the installer one time admin rights. only problem is the installer initates another EXE which is hidden inside it somewhere that trys to run as well. this program hasnt asked for the rights so the PC shuts it down. the main installer then fails because one off its elements hasnt installed

any ideas?

Answer:admin rights - problems with "sub" exe

Something else is going on. A sub process runs at the same level of its parent, unless the application choices to belay that, an executable running in a high process that runs a sub process is at the same level. The only way for this not to happen is if the application makes the decision to run the sub process in a lower level. Windows does not make that decision.

It previously had Windows XP Professional (32 bit) and worked fine.  
But, I have three computers in my home and home office and would like
them all to work better together on my wired home network, so I am
upgrading all three to Windows 7.   My two desktops (one is Dimension

There are 2 devices in the "Device Manager" that do not have drivers installed.

I just did a clean install of Window 7 SP1 32-bit to a Dell Latitude E6500. I have uploaded all the Windows updates and all seems to be performing well. However, there are two devices in the "device manager" that do not have drivers installed, and I can't determine what the devices are nor how/where to find the drivers for them online or elsewhere. The driverless devices are "Base System Device" and "Broadcom USH". When I look at the properties page of both devices, it says that the Base System Devices location is "PCI bus 3, device 1, function 3", and the Boradcom USH's location as "0000.001a.0002.001.000.000.000.000.000".

The laptop did NOT come with a drivers installation disk.

QUESTION: How can I identify what these devices actually are and, more importantly, how can I obtain the driver for them?

Answer:Can't ID driverless devices "Base System Device" and "Broadcom USH"

Well, as for the second part of your question......... have you tried using windows own driver update utility? Right click on the yellow exclamation point in Device Manager, choose update.

I have this very strange problem with my newly installed Windows 8.1 laptop, which is joined to the domain. When the logon screen appears I'm not able to log on with my credentials, the domain\username as shown are correct, but when I give my credentials
I get the error "The password is incorrect. Try again". 
I am certain that the credentials are just fine, if I choose the option sign in with different user and I use the same domain account with the same credentials it will log on into my account.

What do you mean "choose different user and login with my account"? Do you mean logon to the account in another PC or just click "another user"?
Have you tried to logon to the domain account in another pc, then change the password, then test this issue again.

When using IE8 and navigating to a site that requires authentication, a dialog is poped up requesting the username and password. On Windows versions prior to 7, this would not default the Domain to the name of the computer (assuming the computer is not part of an AD Domain), in fact there was no default domain name used as part of the username.

On Windows 7, the Domain defaults to the user's computer, if the username does not contain a domain specification ex not like: "MYDOMAIN\myusername". If you just type in "myusername", then the default domain is explicitly passed. If the site assumes that just the username will be passed, and infers the domain, the way Windows 7 always passes an explicit domain name (either typed as part of the username, or the default computer name) causes the login to not work. In my particular case, we're no quite sure what domain name the web site is expecting (since it expects just a username and infers the domain for us).

In Windows 7, when the "Windows Security" login dialog pops up, how do you tell it to just pass the username, excluding the default domain name?

Answer:Default Domain in "Windows Security" login dialog

I just started using Windows 7 and I am experiencing the same issue with the default domain in "Windows Security" login dialog? I've been searching, but no solution so far.

Some guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I have a machine with Vista Ultimate x64 on it (more specs at the end). It is joined to a Windows SBS 2003 domain.

When I log in to either my domain account or the local administrator account, I get "Welcome," then "Preparing your desktop," then a blank blue screen with just mouse cursor.

Ctrl-Shift-Esc does not invoke task manager. Win-R does not bring up the Run dialog. Ctrl-Alt-Delete provides security screen, but Task Manager can't be invoked there.

I can boot into safe-mode or safe-mode with networking and successfully log into both accounts. (WTF?)

Things I've tried:
* Done Vista startup repair. It claims there is no problem (and it's sorta right - I *can* startup a normal windows startup, I just can't properly log in)
* Logged in with safe mode and done chkdsk /f on all relevant volumes
* Done sfc /scannow - nothing interesting
* Changing HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\Shell to "Explorer.exe" (it used to b cmd.exe /k start cmd.exe)
* Deleted the HKLM\SYSTEM\MountedDevices key and allowed it to be regenerated. No effect.
* Removing the machine from the domain, and adding it back
* Using net user Administrator /active:yes to activate the machine\Administrator account. I can log in (to a normal windows startup) on that account and get a desktop. But...then what.

No ghosting, drive letter shenanigans, etc. have been carried out.

Running out of ideas. Thanks in advance for any advice.

The problem started awhile ago when i went to open up Google chrome a message opened with the location of file and also a message saying 'A device attached to the system is not functioning.'. After that i started to open up other browsers then i opened up just a random .exe file and i realized that the problems weren't just the browsers and programs is was also use the cd-rom.

please help! :]
thanks
 

Answer:A device attached to the system is not functioning.

The easiest method to start troubleshooting this is to start removing all external devices.

This means all devices and hardware you have attached to it. This means any printers, modems, external hard drives, flash drives, cd-roms whatever you connected to the outside of the PC, that's what you need to disconnect.

If you see everything is functioning for a few hours or even a day or so, you can start connecting each disconnected device separately for a long period until you have found the culprit.

If you still see the error after disconnecting all external devices, then you need to start thinking about the internals of the PC. Could it be a driver issue, could it be a failing card in the pc etc. Cross that bridge when you get to it, if you get to it.

Tried to open Ultimate Windows Tweaker, which I've used several times, and now I'm suddenly getting an error:
"A device attached to the system is not functioning."
 
The only two USB items I have plugged in are the mouse and keyboard, I've tried unplugging each and switching to other USB ports, and the error still occurs.

Answer:Device attached to system not functioning

This is a long-shot, check device manager for any yellow or orange flags.  Is printer also usb, or other, attached?  Any other external device plugged into computer via a non-usb method?  A wild-shot:  an internal device just may have disconnected software-wise.

Hello,

I have a dell inpiron 530 desktop and I recently reformatted the disk and installed the original factory OS. Everything seemed fine until I tried to connect it to the internet. It failed connecting to the internet because I forgot the install the network drivers. DOH.

Ok, so I then tried to install some drivers from a CD; however, every time that I try to boot the driver application, it gives me an error, stating:

"A device attached to the system is not functioning

Could not start up DellResourceCD.exe"

I've been looking around the internet for the past few hours now and I can only find solution applied to different scenarios than mine. So I was wondering if anybody had a resolution for my situation?

Any advice would be much appreciated, thank you.

Answer:A device attached to the system is not functioning.

I suggest going to Device Manager and checking to see if there are any errors as indicated by a yellow exclamation point. Sounds like the driver for your optical drive needs to be reinstalled.

Note, I would go to the Dell support site and get the drivers since they are probably more up to date than the ones on the CD.

Do you have the Dell Resource CD?

If you receive this error message A device attached to the system is not functioning, here are a few things you may try. It is quite possible that the attached device is not working for one of these reasons: USB or external device is switched off, or connected improperlyThe external device and drive types are incompatibleThe external device is not properly inserted in the drive or connected to the portThe drive door is openThe external device is not properly formatted.
Correct the problem by addressing the above possibilities and try again running your command again.

Perhaps if you save to a FAT32 formatted partition.

Did you set MTP for the transfer protocol?
 
Unlock your device’s screen.
With a USB cable, connect your device to your computer.
Swipe down from the top of your device's screen to see your notifications.
Tap the USB for... notification. Then tap Transfer files (MTP).
A File Transfer window will open on your computer. Use it to drag and drop files, just like with other external devices and storage.
When you're done, eject your device from Windows.
Unplug the USB cable.

I thought maybe it was a driver problem so I downloaded all the drivers and when i hit the .exe to install one of the drivers the same messages appears. I tried all the .exe files i got for the drivers and each one displays the same message.

SETUP
I have a small domain of computers and a couple user accounts.  Each of these user accounts areconfigured as autologin on many different computers (e.g. the account "user1" will autologin on five different computers).  The auto-login
is configured in the registry, the profile is on a network share, the profile is mandatory.  Generally, everything with this setup works fine.

PROBLEM
Occasionally, the computers will get a BSOD.  The particular driver/cause of the BSOD varies, but regardless of this, the behavior is always this: the computer blue-screens, then next time the computer powers on and it attempts to autologin to the previously
mentioned domain user account, Windows displays an error message saying:
"The User Profile Service service failed the log on. User profile cannot be loaded."
The only fix is to then log in as an administrator (either a local admin or domain admin) and close out a dialog box that pops up saying:
"Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown"
There are two options given, "Check for Solution" and "Cancel".  Clicking on either of these options (or just X'n out of the window completely) and rebooting the computer then lets the domain account autologin.

Possible Fix?

It seems as if the computer is forcing an administrator to acknowledge that there was a blue screen before it lets any non-admin account log on to the computer.

I received a new laptop at work to install Windows 10 Pro on. It previously had Windows 8 Home but I did a clean install of Windows 10 and upgraded it to Pro using a valid key. The issue I'm facing now is that when I try to login, I get the "Password is incorrect issue" many times trying to login with a domain controller user account. I've searched and have found no answers. Does anyone know what could be causing this problem? I'm currently on Build14393.

I received a new laptop at work to install Windows 10 Pro on. It previously had Windows 8 Home but I did a clean install of Windows 10 and upgraded it to Pro using a valid key. The issue I'm facing now is that when I try to login, I get the "Password is incorrect issue" many times trying to login with a domain controller user account. I've searched and have found no answers. Does anyone know what could be causing this problem? I'm currently on Build14393.

Answer:"Password is incorrect" on domain controller user account

Welcome to the forum.

You need to contact the company IT staff about this. They understand the important specifics of the situation better than could anyone else.

Was the computer successfully joined to the domain? This is something that only a domain admin could do.

I'm trying to use the File History feature in Windows 8.1 to create backups.  When I click "File History" from the control panel, nothing happens.  No new window opens, it just stays at the Control Page.

I've tried manually going to "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\File History".

All works fine with local Administrative user profile.

Why does File History not start/open/run for the domain user account that is in the Administrators Group?

Answer:"File History" won't open/start for domain user profile/account

Hi,
Base on my lab machine (Windows Server 2008 R2 DC, Windows 8.1 client). either domain admin user or domain standard user, they all work fine.
What's your environment? Did this issue occur on all domain user or specific one?
In some cases, File History may conflict with the enterprise policies (like retention policy). I suggest you contact your IT admin to see if there is some other policy to limit this.

XP Pro SP3

Something has gone wrong and I can't figure out what. A few days ago this comp booted to some really stripped down desktop like the default desktop for a new user.

I found all of my regular Administrator files and folders intact but now when I log in (I'm the only user and guest account is off) everything for my Administrator account is coming from this location listed in the registry:

http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/1772/tempproblem.jpg

If I could obtain a list of all those default XP Pro Administrator locations I might could resolve this by editing the registry and rebooting. Knowing what caused this in the first place would be better.

I have run a plethora of software to try to find out if I may have picked up some badware but only Avast Free edition about an hour ago has picked up on anything. Two files can't be scanned but I haven't selected for Avast to take any action yet:

1. C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Win Patrol\HOSTS
(I'm sure it's normal for Win Patrol to lock out it's copy of the Hosts file)

2. C:\winstart.bat

The error for both is ""File is offline - it is currently not available."

winstart.bat is empty.
 

Answer:Admin login coming from "temp"

Greetings, mysticide.

I'd strongly advise you to go through the Malware Forum's Read & Run Me First instructions, then open a thread in that forum with the required logs attached - "winstart.bat" is a well-known infection.

Hi Ten Forums,

User reported the issue via Skype after failing to open an excel spreadsheet from a network drive and moments later clarified their windows libraries (i.e. Downloads, Documents, ..) vanished. They recently have been moved onto a Windows 10 box from Windows 7.

It was thought to be legacy software (AudoCAD Inventor 2010) causing the issue, but problems have continued after the move. The user has had a problem with every system she has been allocated (more than anyone else in our business).

What's been done
Restored missing folders manually - but they keep getting lost

Attachment 138502
Deployed Inventor onto another PC and end user now remote desktops (rules out issue with SW)
Revoked Admin Access but folders kept getting deleted (rules out user deletion)Checked for profile corruption in reg-edit (no issues - not using a temp profile etc.)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

Navigated to:C:\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile and only found "APPDATA", copied missing folders from C:\users\Default\. - I re-created the user libraries again after this.
Made sure the User is in the same OU as their computer in Active Directory, group policy is up-to-date and i cannot see any issues
Issue still not resolved

Hi,

I was running a CCTV camera's VMS and for it to save files directly to my hard drive, it had to get the username and password for the system so as to be able to write to the disk. Now, at that time I couldn't for the life of me remember what my username was and so he said that once he upgrades the VMS he'll be able to create another profile and use that. I was then told that once my usage of the VMS was over, I could uninstall the program and everything would return to normal. Software was iVMS 4200 by Hikvision.

So, as you can see in Boot 1 & 2 images, when I boot my PC now it automatically tries logging into "admin'' and then says that the password is incorrect. Only after that do I have the option to change it to the default profile, mine, which is also the administrator profile.

I've tried all the steps mentioned in Delete User Account in Windows 10 - Windows 10 User Accounts Tutorials and anything else online but there does NOT even show that there is another profile when I go to all the various places where deleting a profile can be done from.

All the relevant pictures have been attached. Please let me know if there is anything else that would be needed.

Would like to not have UAC pop-up for files & folders on non-C: drives, so expect they need to have "full control". Default is Special Permissions. Is there a way to default to "full control" when new folders are created, or do I need to mod permissions for each one? Note that I am NOT talking about anything on the o/s drive C:.

Answer:Permissions for non-system, "user" drives; not "c:"

How about right clicking the non C drive - clicking Properties - Security tab? Setting full control there for the entire drive? Does that work for you bro?

Hello,

This is an URGENT problem that I am having with this Windows 7, 64 BIT ULTRA MEGA AWESOME computer. This is probably the most unusual thing that has ever happened to the Windows community, and it's a problem causing problems.

You will find this typed up rant detailed in some sort of way, I don't want silly answers like:

"Just log out of Standard account and log into Administrator."

"Use the disk!"

"There are 28.3495 grams in an ounce."

PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THING BEFORE YOU ANSWER (or get know what I am dealing with at least)

Please answer with the best you can, It's not a bad thing if your suggestion didn't work but at least know what you're typing.

Problem: I am stuck in the standard account with the start page only having my selection of my named standard account and "Other User". I have no password to my Standard and it's a good fine account. Otherwise, clicking other user would give me the inserted "Username" and "Password" No administrator account there, not the one I named.

I in fact, caused this problem a long time ago (6 months?). I was trying to make a standard account for myself and have the administrator for my parents beside it. When I made the standard account, it didn't show up on the startup screen. I instead put it in "Other User" and it made the account. Although, it replaced where the administrator account was.

We used to have "stereo mix" option that enabled streaming audio recording without having to have the audio playing through the speakers. How do I do that now? What replaces that capability? Who makes my sound card? Why is that not readily available somewhere in Dell land? I can't believe forum searching found pretty much nothing on this.

Answer:Latitude E6530 Windows 10 no "stereo mix" option for sound input device, only "high definition audio device" with Microsoft driver and unknown manufacturer.

aj_chicagoWho makes my sound card?
Hello. The audio chip manufacturer was IDT.
aj_chicagoWhat replaces that capability?
IDT doesn't have "stereo mix", so I'm not sure how you used to have it on the E6530. IDT has an equivalent capability that it calls Rec.Playback. That can be found in the list of recording devices, after the IDT driver is installed.
aj_chicagoHow do I do that now?
Dell doesn't support audio on an E6530 that has had Win10 installed. The IDT company went out of the consumer audio business long before there was a Win10 OS, so there is no Win10 IDT driver for that model. Your computer is currently using the Windows native audio driver, which, as you say, does not support a stereo mix kind of feature.
You should be able to install the IDT driver for Win7 by installing with compatibility mode.
1. Download and save the audio driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive.  [There are two "formats" on the driver's page. Scroll down to the 2nd one, named "Hard Drive" format, and download that one, not the 1st one named "Windows Update Package".]2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the dri... Read more

Hello everyone!

I am new to using sevenforums for posting things. I have tried to read all of the rules, but if I did not do something correctly please let me know so I can fix it and ensure it doesn't happen again.

I work in an IT department on a college campus and have a specific issue that no one in my office has ever seen/heard of before.

We have a faculty member who just recently received a new desktop computer (within the last month). It is a Dell Optiplex 9010 running Windows 7 Pro x64. All of the computers we manage have a standard user account (ie: John Doe) with their password and an administrator account that we have the log-in information for. Both accounts are set as administrators and have no restrictions whatsoever. We do not run a network or anything, so they are both on the actual PC.

Yesterday I was called down to her office with an issue of her not being able to log on. After much inspection I discovered that upon start up the computer was trying to log in to an account named "admin" automatically and the two user accounts that we manage were nowhere in sight. I was able to select the "other user" option and manually enter the log in credentials for both users and successfully log on.

I had never seen this "admin" account before and am confident that it was not created by a user of the PC. I decided to view the accounts via "manage accounts" and it is nowhere in sight. I looked on the C drive and also did no... Read more

Answer:Unknown "admin" user automatically trying to log-on.

Hi there, welcome to Seven Forums
It seems the Administrator account has been activated within Windows 7.
Follow the link to a tutorial below to disable the 'admin' account:

Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

As you have not set any restrictions, it is most likely a user of the PC in question has activated this account beforehand and has thrown you off as you have never seen it before Just follow the tutorial to disable it and tell us if the PC tries to login automatically onto another account. Good luck!

Dom

EDIT: If you are to use the command prompt method please bear in mind what is said:
"NOTE: If you had previously renamed the built-in "Administrator" account's name, then you will need to substitute administrator in the command below with the new name instead."
So that 'new name' may be 'admin'. If the account is still there just try and use the default name 'administrator'.

After a clean install of Windows 7 and installing both current NVidia (GeForce 7800GS AGP) drivers and monitor driver (ACER W223X) I was able to get Windows & to run in my monitor's native resolution (1680x1050) but no matter what resolution I run in I get some weird effects. When in the 'Login Screen' I get short black lines scattered about the screen and the controls are all corrupted. Once logged in and on the desktop the graphics are all good with no issues at all. That is until I try to do something that requires Windows to toss me the "User Account Control" dialog.
The dialog is corrupted (see attached) except for the "No" button which is obviously the default and therefore has focus. As I move the mouse over the "Yes" button it gains focus and it becomes clear and visible. The background, although dimmed, displays just fine. If I drag the dialog around the screen, the "No" button leaves copies of itself like mousetracks. When I click yes or no and the dialog closes, the display goes back to normal. This occured both during Windows installation and after it was completed. I just assumed that once the updated drivers were installed it would go away. NOT!
I am guessing Windows is changing the display resolution when dimming the screen or in the login screen. ?? I have exhausted myself trying Vista drivers, XP drivers, Windows default drivers... I have tried about 10 different versions and still no change. Suggestions. Is this an... Read more

I have a domain joined Surface Pro 2 running 8.1 Pro.
The following GPO settings are in place:

* Assign a default domain for logon


* Do not display last logged on user


* Disable logging in with Microsoft accounts - uses the following registry setting - MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\NoConnectedUser - Value = 3

The end goal is for the machine to boot to the login screen that just displays empty user name and password fields
The problem at the moment is that instead of doing that, the client boots to a screen where the only option is to click on "Other user". Only then does the login screen I want, where they enter their username and password in full, actually appear.
These Surface Pro 2's are to be used by small children, and have the "Other User" screen appear is confusing for them, as well as being very annoying for me. It's completely unnecessary.
I've searched all over the 'net looking for an easy way to get the client to boot straight to the standard domain joined log in screen, but every time it just boots to this "Other User" screen that has to be clicked on in order to get the correct
login screen to come up.
Is there any way I can get this to boot straight to the login screen I want?

I have a client that brought me his laptop for removal of the login password. Apparently, his neighbor's cousin -the computer "expert"- added the password to make the PC "harder to hack when you're on the internet" - yeah, his words, not mine, whatever rolleyes. This expert neglected to write down the password, and cannot remember exactly what the password is. Anyhow- here's the problem: when using the tools I normally use for this (Active Password Changer and/or the 'Locksmith' feature in the ERD/MSDaRT), they do not show the account that is passworded. But if I use a file explorer from a preinstall environment, I can see the account in question. This is confusing; let me clarify: If I browse to C:\Users using the file explorer in ERD/MSDaRT or UBCD4Win, I see the normal "Administrator" account, the normal "Guest" account, an account we'll call "Bob", and an account we'll call "Joe". The password is on the account "Joe". When using a password changing tool, the account "Joe" is not listed, only the normal "Administrator" and "Guest" or "Public" accounts, and the "Bob" account. When I boot to Windows and get to the login screen, the account Joe comes up, but not the account Bob.

Answer:Windows7- "Hidden" user account and login password problems

Not sure about the reg fix but you might want to try PClogin and see if it detects all of the accounts. If it detects the account, just check the box marked password is empty. This clears the password. If the "expert" used EFS to encrypt the files of the account then resetting the password would cause all the encrypted files to be inaccessible.

I recently assigned a new user (the first one) to an XP machine. Previously, as it started up, it prompted with "Administrator" and a password field (which I had left blank), and a message about being able to setup users once I logged in. Now, having assigned a user, all I get is the offering of the new user, and when clicking on that I get prompted for the password. When I type in the password, the desktop is nothing like what it used to look like when I went in through "Administrator" - the desktop image is gone and the shortcuts that were on the desktop are gone. And my drive mappings to my network are gone. How do I get back to the "Administrator" login screen? and/or assign the Administrator desktop to the new user?

It lets me create these accounts but if I try to log in to any of them (including the guest profile) I get the error "the user profile service failed to login". I have read a number of articles and watched a video on youtube about the issue. They all say to do roughly the same thing, go into regedit and then the profile list and they give some steps involving changing values and such. I have tried this numerous times in different ways and it will not work, it seems my problem is a bit different. In "profile list" in regedit there doesn't even seem to be any record of these accounts whatsoever and no sign of a "corrupt" account which the previously mentioned articles talked about. I'm really stumped here, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Colin.

Hi All,

I enabled the security policy to not display last logged on user, but now it says OTHER USER, and I don't like how it looks. I would like to just hide that text completely, while keeping that policy enabled. Has anyone found a way to do this? Thank you!

Answer:hide "other user" text from login page

I'm looking for a solution to this too.

Instead of displaying "Other User" I'd like to replace it with "Authorized Users Only" or something to that effect. I don't want a pop up with a long-winded message, just "Authorized Users Only" in place of "Other User".

Surely there must be a way to do this?

(BTW, I already tried changing it in the local security policy editor, and while there is a placer there for displaying a custom logon title, it doesn't seem to have any effect on the login screen.)

So we have 1 system that the default domain admin account will not allow us to log into the system. It says bad username or password. We have specified the domain (domain\administrator) no change. The password is correct and you can even right-click run
as and have full admin access. The local account is disabled and renamed. We have attempted to log in it says the account is disabled but it is not disabled. Single 2008 SBS controller.  Resetting is not an option at this point. We are just curious as
to why this is happening on just this one system.

May I know is it possible to show domain user's "Display Name" instead of "User Logon Name" as owner in print queue? Our company's domain using generic "User Logon Name", i.e. 001, 002, 003 and so on, each "User Logon Name" will have personalized "Display Name", e.g. Mary, John etc., but a problem is when a print job printed by a user is hold in the print queue of a network printer, other users won't know who is it (the owner of the print job may shown as 001, 002 etc.) and so not able to ask that user to remove the print job. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

For some reason all of a sudden my machine is showing two users: myself and "Other user". I do not need to show "Other user" as I am the only person who uses the machine, and until this morning I was the only user shown.

How do I hide the "Other user" from the login page?

Trivial I know - but annoying...


Regards.

Answer:Removing "Other user" from login page.

I think it is more important to be sure that it is not a major problem.
Run your antivirus and download and run malwarebytes. Update and run full scan.
If it show nothing, we can either hide the profile or try to delete it.

Hi,
I have one big problem. yesterday i was having problems with my laptop, Dell XPS 14z. It was going way slow. Dont know why. I did a complete restore to the date that i but it. Everything went fine. But instead of setup screen where i can create username, it shows login screen. where only "Other User" with a blank icon is. I cant login to it. I did the restore 3 times, but the problem is still there. Im stuck. I have read serveral threads on different forums, but they arent for any help because peoples screens it shows Other user and last user loged in. But in my case it only show Other user. please help...

Answer:problems login screen - "Other User"

Boot to the Advanced Options Boot menu by pressing F8 during startup.
Select Safe Mode, see if you can login there.

When you say I did a complete restore to the date that i but it do you mean you used the built in System Recovery to put it back to factory new state?

Hello--A few days ago, I got the "system check" trojan from a suspicious website--it produced a bunch of fake error messages, hid all my folders and desktop icons, and hijacked my search results.

I have gone through the recommended cleaning procedure in the stickied thread. Combofix detected and deleted files associated with "system check".

There are still some lingering issues, and I don't know if they are remaining malware, or just screwed up settings from the virus.

First, since I got the virus, my desktop background has been blank (black), and still is that way.

All my launch icons are gone. There is no little "pop-up" program menu on the top, like there is supposed to be (running Windows 7).

Most importantly, when I click on C:\Documents and Settings, it gives an error message titled "Location is not available", saying "C:\Documents and Settings is not accessible. Access is denied". When I go into Properties and try to edit permission settings, it says "You do not have permission to view or edit this object's permission settings.". C:\System Recovery gives the same messages, and a few other folders have the little red "access denied" icon on the folder, although I can view the contents on those.

I am running as an Administrator, and have the only user account on the computer. So I have no idea how I can get permission to access my own Documents and Settings now, sinc... Read more

My system has intermittently, but repeatedly, given me the "System has recovered from a serious error" screen upon boot, and created minidump files. The system continues to boot and run XP without crashes, errors or significant problems beyond sometimes sluggish response. I have used Windbg to see that ntoskrnl.exe is probably the problem and the "!analyze -v" includes reference to "PROCESS_NAME: avgcsrvx.exe" but I don't know what needs to be fixed. Two minidump files are attached as well as the text from windbg. Any insight or help would be appreciated.
Thank you
 

Answer:Repeated "System has recovered from a serious error" - minidump attached

I have compared your debug txt to my own with no discrepancies
So you are set up properly to read your dmps.

The driver that has caused the fault is avgcsrvx.exe
This is part of your AVG antivirus software.

A couple of questions:
Do you have more than one av installed?
(note: Having more than one installed will cause conflicts, instability and insecurity.)

How long have you had avg installed and when was your last update?
They may have an update that fixes the problem, or your most recent update may be the cause of the problem.
You might try rolling back to a previous version, or updating (if available).

Otherwise, since avg does sometimes cause problems for some systems,
you could try another av product.
My preference is for Avira. Top marks in effectiveness, extremely rarely is there a conflict issue (for me), and very frequent updates, (usually two a day).
I highly recommend it, if you are interested in an alternative.

Hi all, new member here,
I have a quick question with a long explanation.

This is a Windows XP sp3 domain connected PC with one specific user, which all of a sudden takes 2.5mins to log in to the domain, Where it used to take just about 20 seconds. Other users on the same PC is all OK (20sec login)

This is not the usual where it hangs at "applying computer settings" or "personal settings" it's after those two has passed that it just hangs for a couple of minutes.
All i get is the mouse pointer (not even hourglass) and the desktop wallpaper for about 2-3 minutes. When it finally logs in everything is as quick as you would expect that spec of PC to be (1,6ghz Sempron, 1gb RAM, 40gb IDE-100 HDD)

I've tried taking off all non necesary autostarting services. (even the antivirus just to test)
I've taken it off the domain and re-adding it with new computer name.
I've had it on static IP (with each of our 2 DNS as primary at separate times)
I've tried adding that specific user to the domain admins group.
None of these made any difference.

Now i'm stumped, where do I go from here?
Many thanks in advance.
 

Answer:XP sp3, slow domain login (not DNS issue, not slow at "applying computer settings")?

Never mind. Found it.
I had Home folder connect to H: \\misspelled\
plus i had it in a .bat for that user wich was spelled correctly.

It's always the easy solutions
Sorry to bother you all.

After two month's use the "e" and "c" keys stopped working on my wireless keyboard. I ran Dell diagnostics and got a FAILURE report. Dell promptly sent me a replacement keyboard. After two minutes of use the same keys failed to respond. Also, the power light blinks off and on slowly. Not sure if that's pertinent. Anyone have any suggestions while I wait a response from tech support?  I'm using a wired keyboard now. Thanks.
