I have a gateway with a tsstcorp dvd =_ rw mlti format double layer drive and very suddenly I can no longer watch movies. Games play, cds play, audio fine. But I put in a movie and it's like there's no disc here. We've watched movies on it for over a year, so I checked multiple movies that once worked. I've followed the troubleshooting, tried to update driver. The wizard could find no better driver than what is already being used. I DO NOT get an error message. I just don't get anything to show up either under My Computer or in Media Center or Media player. Oh, and if it helps we have Windows XP Media Center Edition. This stumps me. I read somewhere "Security Update for Windows Media Player 6.4 (KB925398)" was a problem but I even went to add/remove programs and couldn't find that paticular update, so I couldn't uninstall that.
Thanks for any help.

After I ran registry mechanic and defragged my hard drive (perfect disk - thrice, although I stopped the defrag half way through), none of the latest games work anymore (Call of duty 4, Crysis demo, Bioshock), although older games like Heroes of might and magic 3 still runs fine. Whenever I click to start a game, the splash screen will start, the screen will go black like when one normally starts a game, and then I'm just back at the desktop, with no error message. All other software works fine, like Ableton Live 5 etc.

I should also say that before all of this I decided to clean up my hard drive and deleted some files mainly in C:\documents and settings\bernhard\local settings\temp. I did not delete any read-only files. Maybe this screwed it up?

It's strange because everything works fine except these games all of a sudden.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Guys you won't believe it.

I reinstalled Vista yesterday because of this issue and also my games.
Yesterday everything worked.
Today I installed my applications and extra drivers and I started Racedriver GRID and it did the same thing.
So since its a new Vista install I checked what I installed today and removed the Windows Visual C and my Genius Fpen 610 driver.
Reboot and magically Grid and all my games started.

My Genius F610 Tablet driver for Vista was causing all the trouble!!!!
Can you believe that?

Thanks for everyones help!

About a few months ago I can still play games like Combat Arms, Call of Duty 4, BioShock, and Dead Space at minimal performance. But now, I reinstalled the game to play it again and it just got stuck on the Starting Screen or just plain BLACK Screen! I can still play some MMORPG like Sword of the New World: Granado Espada or the recently Closed-Beta, Luna Online just fine. I don't know what I did wrong with my Dell XPS Laptop.

A:I can't play my games anymore!?

The only thing I noticed with Vista and games is sometimes a game will load and you get to a black menu screen for the game. I play Silent Hunter 4 and the first time I loaded the game in Vista I had not issues at all. Me being me messed up how to handle admin account and user account so I did a clean install to start over. Once done I loaded Silent Hunter 4 again to play. No issues, loaded fine. I clicked to play and I got the load screen. Once I got to the menu of the game it was nothing but a black screen. I could hear the music and see my mouse cursor but nothing else. So, what I had to do was go to my videocard tweak program ( I just use the one offered by Nvidia, it works fine) and reset my video card to all the default values. Should be just a box to check and apply to reset to defaults. Once done, I ran the game and all was fine. I closed the game out and reset my videocard back up to the tweaks I like. My game ran fine every since. Give it a shot, it worked for me.

I think I am in the right place but if this thread should be in another spot let me know.

I bought a computer a while ago and because it has a GeForce 7800 GS video card it sadly has the infinite loop problem. I managed to fix the Blue Screen of Death errors this problem causes when I downloaded the latest drivers for my card. I haven't had the crash problem since, but still have video rendering problems when I play some games like Battlefield 2 for instance what happens is the environment goes all screwy, I see a checkerboard type map on the ground or the image of the gun I am holding has odd triangle shapes coming off it or when I get into a vehicle the view is all triangles and flashing object or the other characters in the game look all sparkly and seem to be made up of odd triangle shapes. The only way to fix this is to reboot the system closing the game and starting it again doesn't work. Anywho the main reason I am here is because since I updated the video drivers ( I don't know what they were before or if this is the real reason for the problem) or because of something else other than the driver update, I can't say for sure as I didn't notice the problem right away because I didn't start the affected games for quite some time after the fact. I can still play COD4 but COD5, COD6, and Black Ops all fail to work and close down before they start COD6 actually stutters at the menu screen and I have to shut the system down by pulling the plug....

Hey guys I have AT&T "High-Speed" Internet DSL. I used to be able to host games and such when I was directly connected to the modem and nobody would lagg, and I would never lagg in games. Anyways, now I bought a linksys wrt54gl because I needed internet for myself and other people here at home. Well I tried the best I could, and I can join games (I play Borderlands and CS:Source and Team Fortress 2) but I can't host. When I host, my friends can't join, they used to be able to join me with no lagg... now they can't even join me.

I've tried port forwarding, disabling DMZ, removing the router firewall, tons of stuff. I can't get it to work, and I need to be able to host games again because I have the fastest internet.

Please help me out, I'm a newcomer and not too Tech Savvy but I'm not stupid either.

Thanks guys at Tech Support Guy Forums,

I've already asked this on two other forums, no one can give me a straight goes:

Whenever I play a game for more than 10 minutes, it locks up and I have to reboot my PC. Even after I reboot, it still occurs every single time. Also, if I want my games to run smooth, I have to run them as soon as I boot up the PC or else the frame rate goes to hell. I have all the latest drivers for my vid/sound card and XP. Defragged around 2 days ago.

The 2nd problem happened long before the first but I didn't think much of it...

I really have no clue what's wrong. Any ideas?

At least 2 old games gothic 1 and gothic 2 ( raven ). Both played well on my winXP 64-bit. I reinstalled them both. Gothic 1 has no images in intro, and the sound is very spotty. Gothic 2 also has no intro images and even stopped in the middle of intro.

It is the same computer, except some more games. The computer is virtually not connected to internet except when I need a patch. What could be the reason?

winXP pro 64-bit service pack 2
AMD phenom II X4 955

BTW, the DVDs come from " gothic universal " which includes 3 DVDs ( No1 is gothic 1, No2 is gothic 2 and No3 is gothic 3 ). No3 which is gothic 3 works fine so I have no reason to think that the other two DVDs do not work because they are dusty or scratched. Most other games played well including both old and recent games.

Hi, I have a computer with hardware capable of running almost all current titles, EG Bf3, Dota2, counter strike GO, that was until a few months ago.
I started experiencing serious ping issues / packet loss in games causing me to completely freeze, then re-appear where I would have been. On counter strike source "string_cmds" graph peaks when this occurs.
The problem has got worse now, though, I can't play more then 10 minutes of ANY game before something goes wrong, be it a game crash or my whole computer shuts down resulting in one of the many Blue screen Stop errors I have said.
The game will run perfectly smooth, then suddenly my whole computer will shut down. This can happen about 5 times a day depending on how willing I am to restart the game.
Google chrome has just started to crash frequently now, too, and with limited income being 16 I need to fix this rather buy a new pc.
I don't know whether this will be useful but the address for one of them ( I've had well over 100 by now) Is "at FFFFF8801047D000" and another.." STOP: 0x00000019"

Welcome to SevenForums,

I have had a look at your last 3 DMP Files, 2 of them are referencing memory.

Can you try these steps for me

Test your RAM modules for possible errors. How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+If there is no error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers. Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

I have had the ability to play older games. I speculate that after installing SP2 on the x64 you lose the ability to install/play older x86 games. I cant play my MechWarrior 4 anymore and it has me annoyed. I also assume at times...even though sounds stupid..that newer hardware is just too high end for older games that they cant be installed on them. I know its silly but possible. Just keep trying in compatibility mold all the way back to windows 2000/xp settings and try it out more. It might just work if it feels like it.

I received this error after trying to play europa universalis 4, after updating with the latest windows 8.1 updates. Yesterday all games worked fine, today, none of them run at all.

I've been searching for a solution but all i can find is update your graphics card / DirectX / install the Dx in the game folder itself, all of which i did, but none of it worked.

I've tried pretty much everything i could find about this problem, anyone have any ideas? Only difference is i am running all of this off a laptop with an intergrated graphics card though, and for the next few months my laptop is all i have in terms of a pc. Graphics card is Intel HD graphics 4600, which worked just fine a day ago.

When I press any button after this happens, The monitor flickers and then shows a screen that is bizarrely coloured. I am using Windows XP Professional 64 bit-edition

While trying to clean up the drive of my Dell Inspiron 6400, I must have accidentally uninstalled something. Now my DVD player does not play DVD anymore.
When I go to ?My Computer?and then click on the DVD, I get an error message saying ?This file does not have a program associated with it to perform this action.? The DVD does neither play on DIVX nor on Windows Media Player.
I have checked under ?Device Manager? to see if there was a problem with the DVD driver, but it seems fine. There is no exclamation sign. I even uninstalled the driver and rebooted the computer. It still did not solve the problem.

Can anyone please give me a solution? It is getting quite frustrating.

Thank You in advance.

I have a Toshiba L70-B 12z.
Couple of months ago I did experience some problems while gaming (it did crash a lot).
I brought it by the shop who sent it back to toshiba to repair.
They replaced the motherboard because apparently 2 of the 4 cpu's where broken.

When I did get it back I found out my internal speakers weren't working anymore. So I sent it back ones more.
This time, the 2 internal speakers weren broken (how, I don't get) and also replaced. Mind you, it is a 1,5 year old notebook.

When I got it back this time, DTS sound was not functional anymore.
I get the error 'Failed to find apo endpoint'.
I did try to uninstall DTS en re?nstall, but when tries to re?nstall I would get the error 'This product does not support DTS-processing'.
I tried various DTS drivers (older and newest) without succes.

It's very frustrating, since before '**** started hitting the fan' everything worked perfectly fine. DTS sound was working perfectly, and I really liked the sound. I also tried a lot of internet solutions. Re?nstalling windows 10, going back to windows 8.1 (since my laptop originally came with windows 8.1), uninstall, re?nstall and updating sound drivers (from realtek), install the audio enhancement driver, updating BIOS via servicestation, all the recommended drivers for my laptop, all the windows updates. Nothing works.

I really don't know what I can do more for making DTS work again.
I hope someone here can help me.

Greetings to all, I have been running win 8.1 for a while. At first Bluetooth was working fine. Then last week Bluetooth stopped working. Why, I have got a clue. What I did is just reinstall the drivers from ASUS web site but to no avail. I have looked at 'Event Viewer' but there is no error message pertaining to Bluetooth. In 'Services' Bluetooth is running. I am stumped as far was why my phone that used to connect via Bluetooth to my rig is does not connect anymore. Most of all, I do not know where to look next to solve the issue. My rig has been acting funny recently in many other ways; ie, windows update tells me updates are there to be installed by the update page in 'windows update' is blank. May be different issue than the Bluetooth but I think all related for some reasons. I don't pretend to know anything about IT but would surely appreciate some help PS: I have loads of DCOM errors which I have mentioned in previous post. I have read all I can about DCOM but still can't understand what it is use for and how I can solve issue pertaining to DCOM. zongo saiba

Hi there, brand new user on here but I have been browsing for awhile

I had an issue a few months ago that turned out to be having 2 different antivirus programs on my computer at the same time that kept causing Blue Screens. Nothing's been the same since then. Today I was just trying to get her running better and ran Verifier.exe and luckily the computer's up and running fine still, but I have absolutely no sound now. And the dummy that I am didn't write down exactly the steps I took while using Verifier.exe. I have an HP s5-1060 w/ 6 GB of RAM and an intel Core i5 @2.90 GHz

The thing is that the PC's saying it's working completely fine, no warning or error signs in device manager, the troubleshooter reports nothing wrong. But when i click on the little sound icon down there and the bar raises up and you're supposed to get that little beep.. nothing. I have two sets of headphones, tried both of them in the headphone jack in the front of the computer and in the speaker port in the back. Nothing. So it hadn't been the speakers. Which I hadn't been doing anything w/ them anyway, it's not that the sound is just turned down. It's really odd that the OS is reporting nothing wrong yet even when i try to plug in headphones, I get no sound whatsoever. I have tried to troubleshoot as much as I could but it's been a long day now and I can't figure anything else that it could be except something I did in that .exe program and idk enough about it to go from there.

Hey all,
I'm new to this forum. I'm trying to figure out what when wrong with my laptop. I had a trojan attack at some point previously and I'm not sure if it is related, but I recently found that my audio is not working. The audio doesn't work through my speakers as well as headphones. I'm using Windows 8.1, on my Acer Aspire E 15 E5-521-48KN. In the task bar (on the right-lower corner), there's an 'x' mark on the sound icon and when I hover over it, it says 'The Audio Service is not running.' I'm thinking this is probably a software issue and not a hardware one, but I'm not sure. I have tried re-installing the audio driver, but that didn't seem to help.

I would appreciate any help with this issue. I've tried going to a local computer repair store who has asked me to try formatting the laptop, but I'd like to try and avoid that if possible. I've ordered for a recovery disc just in case, however.

Thank you in advance.

Alright.First of all hi to everyone.My shift button on keyboard is not working.I don't know why.I repaired my system on 2 January,taken keyboard away,disk,etc. I know how to do those stuffs,because i needed to clean him.On 15 January i got a problem that shift key is going on lack activity.Sometimes it works,sometimes it doesn't.Now it works no more. The interesting thing is that... it may sound ''funny'' because one day i just tested and my shift key works only when i use shift key+K letter. So when i hold shift with K,L,0,9, (something from these 4) it works and then i must hold shift+any of that 4 keys and then i can type everything like _"("(("("$("$("!!!)?>?. Without that,my shift is not working.I assume it has to do with shortcuts,etc. They told me on other forum that my Keyboard is problem and it is Hardware problem not Software nature.So any ideas?

If i watch anything in full screen, the screen turns off to save power, or i play a full screen game, the clock doesn't keep up. Sure, fixing it temporarily is easy, but highly irritating.

I am using a HP dv6000 notebook. I tried uninstalling and updating to the latest wireless drivers etc... but no luck. I know it's defiantly not a router issue cause my housemates are all connected and I tried connecting to another wireless network and failed.

I did a windows diagnostic test and it said there was a problem with the wireless but couldn't tell me what.

For some reason, awhile back, I used to be able to record with Stereo Mix on Audacity, Hypercam, even to other people on Skype. But all of a sudden, out of nowhere, it just stopped working. There was a time where it said it was unavailable, but now it says it is working, but when I try to record sound using Stereo Mix, it either doesn't record the sound, or the program doesn't recognize that Stereo Mix exists.

I have "Realtek AC'97 Audio for VIA (R) Audio Controller" under my Stereo Mix properties (I'm guessing that's like the driver or audio device name). When I try to record in Audacity, I get a message saying "Error while opening sound device. Please check the input device settings and project sample rate." The input device (the Realtek AC'97 I'm guessing) says it's "working", and the project sample rate is the exact same as it says in my recording settings. My guess is that Audacity doesn't see "Stereo Mix" or "Realtek AC'97" as a device currently on my computer, which doesn't make any sense, cuz my computer says otherwise. It also doesn't make sense, because I'm able to select "Stereo Mix" as a device for recording IN Audacity itself.

Windows 7 x64 SP1
Acer Aspire 5830TG

For about a month now, some software in my computer has not been working properly - it crashes immediately on starting, without giving an error message. The problem seems to be fixed after hibernating and restarting my computer several times (Not always), but then it stops working properly once again when I shut down and restart my computer instead of hibernating and restarting it.

The following software seems to be encountering this problem:
Daemon Tools User Interface
Free Download Manager
AVG User Interface

(Note - only the User Interface of AVG crashes. The rest of it works perfectly, detects viruses, etc. Same for Daemon Tools - ISOs are mounted properly, but the UI does not work)

I posted in the virus help forum, but the tools they asked me to use did not give any positive results, so this is most probably NOT due to a virus. Everything else seems to be working properly.

Has windows gone corrupt?

Please help. Thanks in advance.

A:Some software not working anymore

Normally when software starts to play up, a reinstall usually resolves - but as this problem involves more than one program, perhaps running a clean boot may pinpoint the cause should there be a conflict with another program on start up.

So a few days ago I got this nasty piece of spyware that infected my PC. It was one of those redirect ones that infects the boot sector. So I got it cleaned and everything running as it should except for my batch file I have to that runs taskkill that kills all processes of iexplore.exe.

Now all I get when I run taskkill /F /IM iexplore.exe
ERROR - The specific module could not be found.

Turns out I can't kill anything using it now, not even by pids. I can still kill things using the task manager though.

I ran sfc /scannow and everything was fine with the system files. There is nothing weird being run in the task manager and malwarebytes is coming up clean and so is symantec endpoint. No infections anywhere. I even checked to make sure the path was correct.

I am running it as an admin and thats the first thing I checked. My user account shows administrator. So I am thinking something got changed in the registry but I am not sure where to look or what would have changed. One other thing which is odd that started happening after all this is there is no information in the system window on my processor and ram anymore which was showing before I got hit with the virus.

A:External Tv not working anymore

There is probably a switch/function that must have been set to power on the component and relay the video signals to the TV. Check if you can use any other monitor before making a conclusion to replace parts.
I'll assume you used some some external DC source to power your component, if the voltage or the power rating exceeds the comps requirements, then some parts might be damaged...
Try this; press fn+ crt/lcd buttons in a split of a few seconds and see what happens.

Go back over your speaker connections and also make sure the speakers are plugged into the AC power. Try it with a headphone and see if it works. Usually, moving a PC to a different area, it turns out to be a connection problem.

When I first bought my laptop, I connected it to my homegroup and it worked perfectly. after that, I really did not touch it but I always noticed that the homegroup did detect the other computer. About a week later after turning on homegroup, I tried to access the files on my desktop but when I tried to click on pictures, I could not access the files. The next day (today), I left the homegroup on both computers and tried to connect it again. At the end of configuration, it said the connection failed there was an error. Then, I tried again and now, each computer cannot even detect that there is a homegroup. We use an AT&T router and the wireless for the house is working without problems.

So, How can I fix the homegroup feature on windows 7? Both network discovery and public folder sharing are both on and it cant be the firewall because it worked before and I never changed any settings on the firewall. Please Help!

Hi! This week I encountered a very mysterious problem with the internet connection of my desktop pc. While download is fine as usual, upload is slow at best, not working at all sometimes. Surfing is nerve-wracking, download speed of files is as usual, however some internet speedtests don't even manage to upload 32K files for test purposes and report upload speeds around 2 kbyte/sec.

The problem is not related to my ISP since my laptop doesn't have any problems with the connection (using cable and the same router). I have also tried instaling a PCI LAN card, same problem arises. I have tried using an other cable. I have tried using Ubuntu and here a strange thing happens. The upload speed is lower than with my laptop but still nowhere near normal levels. I have tried using safe mode, same problem.

I have run a hijackthis diagnosis and there are no possibly dangerous entries. The internet connection is also not blocked by malware since NetSpeedMonitor reports 0.00 KiB/s upload speed when I (try to) perform an internet speed test.

Of course I have also searched the forums. My problem seems to be identical to this one (unsolved).

Other observations:
Firefox and IE have the same problem.
Some internet pages don't even load (GMAIL)
Skype seems to have no problems with the internet connection and can even upload files at fairly normal speed!

Hi, if this is the wrong forum for this post then I apologize but I have an internet problem. I am on dial up AOL and ever since I uninstalled some programs, one I remember N-Case, my internet won't connect passed step 4 on AOL. It will dial but will not connect. I think this is N-Case that is giving me the trouble, because this has happened before, but I can not go back, because system restore doesn't go that far back. Yes it has been that long. I just never really had any time to mess with it. So I believe it has messed with my settings, because also my network is messed up. It won't even allow me to make a multiplayer game, or find a game connected to the network. I can share files, but that is about it. Also says my IP is a bunch of 0's. If anyone can help me through this problem I would appreciate it very very much. Thanks for your time and help.

Oh, steps I have taken were:

Reinstalling Modem Drivers
Reinstalling Windows XP
Reinstalling AOL

I've had a TDK CD-RW 40x for a few years now, and it has been working fine up until recently.

I can use the CD drive once, and then after that, when I go into My Computer and hit the CD drive (with a CD in it), it tells me: "D:\ is not accessible. Incorrect Function" but with no CD in the drive, it asks me like regular to put one in. The only way to get it to work again is to restart the sytem. And then, it will work once, again until next restart.

The only thing I really changed was upgrading my Nero burning software to the newest version. Burning works fine, but that counts as my "one" CD use per restart. The InCD software for CD-RW's doesn't work at all.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks for any help.

Hey there!
Since today I have a problem, some programs are just not starting anymore.
For example, there would be the Device Manager, the Event Manager, Computermanagement.
It just shows the loading mouse for one or two seconds, but nothing happens, not even after trying to start it with cmd.exe (which still works) or PowerShell.

I don't know what to do, tried resetting my save point but that didn't change much.

Any help is highly appreciated!

I can't access any of the features in the Start Menu except for Desktop (E.g. I click on Mail and the tile has the little animation like it's been presses but nothing else happens). I've also been having trouble with my Cyborg V3 mouse, which worked fine until I moved my computer (which is when the Start Menu started playing up too).

For the mouse I've tried manually installing the drivers after downloading them from Saitek's driver page only for me to be brick walled (I followed the on screen prompts but it came to 'Please select which device you want to install' and wouldn't register my mouse as being plugged in), I tried downloading the driver from Windows Update but it just says it failed to install (Error code: 800f0219). I tried going into Device Manager (it came up as an Unknown Device and kept flashing between the 'Other Device' category and the 'Human Interface category'), uninstalling the drivers I currently had and then re-installing them through Device Manager, which came up saying there was some error with the INF file ('written for W95 or later'). I've also tried defragging and cleaning my registry.

As for when I moved my PC... I was just moving it from one side of the room to the other, turned off the wall socket, unplugged everything, plugged everything into the back of my PC (didn't notice these sockets hadn't been switched off too) and I ended up getting electrocuted plugging my signal cable into my monitor (I didn't think much of it at the time but ...

I replaced the front cover surrounding my keyboard, And the cover happened to come with a controlpad and mouse , ANyhow I started to realise how complex and how many tiny screws there were as I started to open and replace. I am VERY picky and when I bought this laptop 2nd hand it hard a Wear mark on the right side of the mouse pad on thre Fascia Keyboard Surround. Anyhow I replaced it and it looks brand new again. Only thing is when I Started putting things together, THere are now 5 screws left and they are teh tiny ones that go around the keyboard area.. anyway i could not for the life of me find where they go anyway i put the laptop back together and noticed the capslock LED flicker then turn off. I then pressed it and it came on but not as bright, I then Pressed HARD and it turned on and then off. I re-opened everything and plained with the ribbon plugs unplugged all of them and put them back on, this time before i put it all together i tested the caps lock key and it worked fine without pressing hard or anything. ANyway i continued and put the rest back together. Guess what? It now does not turn on at all. I re=opened it twice now and Unplugged everything almost and re-plugged it all and NOPE the capslock LED will not work I cannot even find out where it is. It must be embedded in the actually key itself as I looked around the area and its not there. Anyway, what do you think I should do?

By the way its one of these models I think they are all practically similar in style - hp 13t-3000 Does anyone know any complete teardown sites for this? I am so frustrated and angry cause i ordered a complete keyboard surround fascia cause im so picky and now I have 5 tiny screws left and I have this little rubber surround that I THINK should go in the place surrounding the charger but I could not figure out how the HELL it goes back on. SO i left it out. It works fine with out it, and EVERYTHIING else works perfect . You know how the keyboard suround came with the mousepad controlzone? Well even that works better, smoother, the clicks are crisp. Its like its a brand new laptop. Except for that DAM led  ANy help would be great otherwise I will buy a whole new keyboard for it, i mean they are only like $40 bux but can someone confirm if the LED is actually part of the key itself? I think it is because its an Ultrabook its so compact its nuts. I dont think its a damaged ribbon otherwise something else wouldnt work also and the fact that when i first put it together i saw it flicker and dim and then turn off and turn back on when I pressed it hard, as i stated when i re-opened it and finally put it back together. LED wont turn on no matterhow hard i press or even press the surround area. SOrry if its too long but your help is much appreciated Regards Andrew

Okay it's a bit of a weird one, basically I think I've blown up the whole HDMI related hardware on my desktop. The lead I was using for HDMI wasn;t the most reliable and would have to be plugged out and in sometimes to get it working -

I've tried several other working hdmi leads - tested and it no longer works.
Also used VGA < on Desktop to HDMI < on TV - it doesnt work.

VGA to VGA is working thankfully so I'm using the desktop now to post for help. Any ideas how much this would cost to be fixed? or could I do it myself?. Thanks for any help.

So, I've been trouble free on Windows 7 for a long time. Today, while searching for a document containing the word "audit" I realized that my Windows 7 search is not returning correct results.

I open up the Documents library link, and I see all of my files. I see files with the name audit in them. I go to the top and put audit into the search field and it comes back with 2 files...and misses handfuls of other files that contain the word. I then search for .xlsx (as this is a spreadsheet) and I cannot find that either. I can find other .xlsx files, but not a good handful of them.

I've cleared the index and rebuilt it, but that didn't resolve the issue. My results are the same as they always were.

The router seems to be working fine as the two computer that's connected to through the ethernet wire is working fine.

Well here's the deal. I own a 1GB MicroSD TransFlash Card for my phone, an LG enV. I don't have a port to directly transfer files to my card, so what I do is I take the microSD card and put it in an adapter and plug that into my camera. I transfer my files from the camera and once I'm done, I take it out and put the card into my phone.

For about 6 months it's been working fine.
Today I decided to put a .PNG file into the card so I can set it as my wallpaper on my phone. I dragged the .PNG file in the MY_PIX folder, and unplugged the camera. I then put the card into my phone like I've always done.
My phone started acting very strangely. I could still access my MP3 files that were in my TransFlash card, but a few things happened while the card was in my phone:

- 2 second delays when you press END to get to the main menu.
- I can't access two of my .JPG files on the card, along with the .PNG file I added today.
- I took a picture with my camera feature on my phone and attempted to save it, but it kept saying ERROR.
So I took out the card and played with the phone a bit. Everything turned out fine. The delays stopped, it was perfectly fine.
I put the TransFlash card back into my camera and attempted to take out that .PNG file that I added.

The only way to fix it is to buy a new motherboard, do yourself a favor and buy a new video card instead, Dells are not worth fixing. But if it`s under warranty well then that is a different story.

If that`s a laptop then your ONLY option is to replace the motherboard, very simple to do.

Hi, I've been running Windows 10 for a couple of months without any real problems. I've downloaded a couple of free games from the Microsoft store. I recently ran a registry clean up program that deleted a number of empty files, folders and registry keys. Since then my two games have disappeared and when I select Store from the dialogue box I get a brief screen flash then nothing else happens. I've found the store using my browser (Chrome) and tried to download the games again using the 'get game' button but nothing happens. I have cleared the store cache but this doesn't help.

I've not got any antivirus running except Defender. Tried a restore to a couple of days ago but it failed! Have checked region, date and time, all correct.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

This is my first post here, and I came here to ask advice on a big problem, so bad I'm posting this from Knoppix Linux because windows gets stuck in an infinite boot loop. Let me tell you the history of my windows disintegrating: a few months ago, my windows was still logging in but DWM.exe stopped working. This was fine because explorer.exe started up a minute later one week ago, after logging in, I got a black screen with only my cursor. I couldn't do anything, exept unistalling my video driver and unistalling avast anti-virus, because that was causing troubles. I could only do this in safe mode. Surpisingly I was able to reboot and after waiting a little longer, I could work normally. Until yesterday, when windows was functioning normally, I got messages that some files became unreadable and corrupt. I immediatly shut down my pc and started startup repair, I tried system restore en system repair multiple times, but neither of them worked and when I rebooted, My system got stuck in an infinite boot loop. Today, I can still acces all the files on my hard drives, but when I try to check and repair the filesystem, Knoppix found some bad sectors in my hard drive. Now I am hopelessly looking for answers and I thought asking some help on this forum. Kind regards, Durneztj

I have had this problem too on occasions. I would suggest logging into the router Then I would go through and double check your settings. Make sure obtain ip address automatically is how yours is set up. Tinker with the settings and you should be able to get back on the net through the router. You know your internet connection is fine. The only reason it won't work through the router is that there is something it does not like now.

I thought to uninstall it and reinstall, but the first thing to catch my attention in device manager was that there was an error with, under SCSI and RAID controllers: "AP5NSJ1Z IDE controller"
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

So I reinstalled it. (By just uninstalling it thru device manager, and then add hardware, but it appeared just the way it was. I also don't seem to be able to use my IDE HDDs.

There is no group in device manager that'd include the DVD-drive.

If I try to right click and do "new->shortcut" on either desktop or in explorer, nothing happens at all and I do not know why.

Posts on other forums suggest there is something wrong with how vista works with .lnk attribute but I cant make any sense of it. And I will not try out the registry hack that is suggested as I do not know what it does.

My only hope atm is if any of you are familiar with the very same issue and know a way to correct this behaviour.

A:Right click new shortcut is not working anymore

Ah, ok I found a post on this forum possibly about something similar, so I will try out the fix the next time I choose to boot my machine.

I'll get back later on and tell if this suggested fix solved my shortcut issue.

I recently bought a 2TB hard drive to backup all my old hard drives (3 320GB, 2 500GB, 1 200GB). Since all my sata ports were being used I decided to unhook one of my 320GB hard drives that didn't have many files to use its sata cable. Since I don't remember the physical location of all my hard drives I turned off my computer and unhooked one at a time till I found it. The new 2TB hard drive works perfectly so far. The problem is one of my 500GB hard drives has now been having serious issues after being hooked back up.

Just the other day I had done SMART checks on all my hard drives and they all were fine. My 500GB has never had any issues at all. It is probably pretty close to 5 years old. But at first it was causing my windows 7 to take an extra minute or so for starting up. It was being really slow at showing files on the 500GB hard drive. It would eventually open files after a couple minutes. I turned off my computer and tried a different sata cable and power connector. It still acted the same.

I tried running HD Tune but now the 500GB hard drive disappears from My Computer and Disk Management before I can run any tests. I would have run a CheckDisk too if I could. So I had my brother bring over his external hard drive enclosure and put it in that. It wouldn't show up in My Computer, but it would come and go in Device Manager. Then it started popping up errors saying it needed to be formatted now. Other than it sounding like it was spinning faster and the... Read more
