What I first thought would be a simple keyboard problem apparently isn't. When I type the upper case D using the right shift button, I only can get a lower case "d". When using the left shift button, I get nothing but a cursor flash and no letter at all. If I hit the D key again (2nd time) holding down the left shift button, I do finally get the upper case D and as many as I want thereafter.

What I have done so far: Thinking this was a bad keyboard, I purchased a brand new keyboard.......same problem. I then borrowed the keyboard off my wife's computer which is working well.........same problem on my computer. So not likely a keyboard problem. I then uninstalled the keyboard driver and re-installed it THREE TIMES........still same problem. This is an HP Media Center computer with XP Pro so I downloaded the very latest keyboard driver for this keyboard and installed.........still same problem. Of course I rebooted after each install.

I then went to the PC Doctor diagnostic tools and did the keyboard test which puts a keyboard on the screen and as you press each key, it blanks out the key pressed on the screen. All keys work find except for when I go to upper case with either shift button and type the letter D. Instead of just the D going blank on the screen, the C key and the CTRL key go blank also at the very same time. So for some reason my D key is being translated somewhere into a D, C with the CTRL button signal. How can that be?

Ever since I've linked my MS and Skype account, my email is now always "seen" as [email protected] LIVE.COM.
Even my Windows Phone when I sign in with MS account, it gets recognized as @LIVE.COM at the end.

It's slightly annoying, I've checked all my settings on the web/computer/phone.. Nothing does the trick. I do sign in with lowercase email, but it somehow gets changed to uppercase LIVE.COM on it's own.

Anyone else experienced something like this?

This is a screenshot of switching local account to MS. Note that name before LIVE.COM is in lowercase, and I did sign in with all lower case email.

I hope someone can help or explain this problem for me.

I have a DVD I made of my website. The website is constructed with every thing relative to the local system so that it will operate from the DVD.

My XP system has 2 DVD drives. One is a read only (E:) and the other is a R/W drive (F:). The problem is that on the read only drive ALL the directory and file names are in upper case and they are truncated to 8 characters, DOS files? For instance ThisIsanImage.jpg wil be THISISANI.JPG and index.html will be INDEX.HTML.

If I copy the files to my hard drive the result is the same. Of course the html involved will not function with the case of names and directories being changed.

However, if I put the DVD in my R/W drive the directory names and file names are correct and in mixed case with names longer than 8 characters. The website works fro this drive and copies to my hard drive ok. I have never run into this before.

Any one know what's going on. Do I have a setting some where in XP that I don't know about.

Your assistance is most welcome as I want to be able to send this DVD to other people, but I can't be confident that they won't have a problem.

I have recently had an issue with my Vista32 affecting Word in Office 2003. The fonts will only type in uppercase regardless of keyboard caplocks being on or off.

I can however highlight the letters typed and change the case through 'format'; it continues as normal from there on in. Any suggestions?

I don't recall installing a program at the time this started, but it is possible.

Hi Christine

Are you sure it only happens in Word 2003? Just to check, type a few lines in NotePad and WordPad to test. Let us know if you get all caps in those programs as well.

I'm not sure that System Restore will help for this problem, but if you've a recent Restore point that is just prior to the all-capitals trouble, you could try it.

Everyday I upload some files to my website and to simplify my website operations, I use the same filename and just upload a file with new information every day. The case of file extensions is of no consequence to Windows 7, but it matters to my website. I want to standardize on one case and it doesn't matter which as long it's the same all the time. I have one app, the snipping tool, which seems to generally make files using uppercase, but I have some existing files that are lower case. I have tried to get rid of the lower case extensions by deleting the file and then recreating it with the same name. When I do, Windows changes the case from upper to lower. If I simply create a brand new file with no previous instances of that file in existence (as far as I know), then the default case is upper. How does one go about converting all existing files of a particular type to a standard file extension case, be it upper or lower.



A:Change file extension upper/lower case

Not sure you can as Windows is case insensative, but have you tried doing it from a Command prompt, enclosing the filename.ext in double quotes as "filename.ext"?

If that doesn't work, maybe a two step process would.

ren "FileName.EXT" FileName.EX"
ren "FileName.EX" FileName.ext"

I have what i hope is a quick/easy question to answer. Whenever i transfer files from a CD-RW disk back to my hard drive, the names convert into upper case. This doesn't happen from the floppy drive or cd-r disks, only cd-rw & only on transfer back to the hard drive, not in transfer to the disk.

I have a HP cd writer (getting fairly old now) with adaptec direct cd software. i'm running windows 98. I DON'T have the "allow all upper case names" option in folder options ticked and it also happened on my old computer and is still happening on my new computer (same cd-writer transfered to the new computer).

Does anyone know how i can stop it happening? i know it's not a huge issue, but i've just bought a new computer (still getting it up & running) & i really don't want a PILE of files all with upper case names if i can avoid it, so really hoping it can be fixed

When I try to change the case from upper to lower or vice versa of filenames n windows explorer, the changes are not accepted. Also, adding or deleting of spaces in existing filename words is also not being accepted. I have admin privileges.

Thank you for help.

A:Can we change the upper/lower case of filenames in Windows Explorer?

Hi Seymoria, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Filenames in Windows Explorer are not case sensitive. This means that for Windows, the filenames ThisIsMyDocument.doc, THISISMYDOCUMENT.DOC and tHiSiSmYdOcUmEnT.DoC are all the same, the file would be found and can be referred to using any of these or any other combination of upper and lower case letters, as long as the name itself stays the same.

Therefore, if you have a file document_1.doc but you'd like to change the first letter to upper case D, selecting rename and changing the first d to D does nothing. Windows simply does not understand it, for it there was no change as the first letter did not change.

You need to work around this by renaming the file first to something else, then rename it again to Document_1.doc, this time using the upper case D. I use a neat trick here, changing the first letter from lower to upper case: I select rename, delete just the first letter of the filename, the one with lower case, then rename again this time entering the upper case first letter.

I have a weird problem on an XP Home system that was brought in for repair.
When you turn it on, it comes up with a message. The upper and lower case of the message is switched as shown. The periods are shown as music notes! (I have shown them as as %)
If I attempt to go thru safe mode, the options for safe mode, safe with networking, etc, com up - with the same upper/lower case lettering. Choose safe mode option and you get the same message as sbove.

I booted with the XP CD to attempt repair, came up with a different error message.

I am stumped! I would assume a virus, trojan, etc.
I know I can pull the hard drive and format it in another system, then go from there, but trying to avoid that if possible!

Any thoughts on what has caused this issue?

Since you're familiar with yanking the hard drive - how's about yanking it, installing it in another system, and doing an antivirus scan of it from the "clean" system?

Hello,Your system is terribly infected. Problem with these infections nowadays is, it causes a lot of damage. Even if we clean the malware off your system, I can't guarantee that your system will be clean afterwards, because these infections/bundles leave a lot of leftovers behind that most scanners won't even recognise and logs won't show.Also, I can't promise you we can repair all the damage it caused... Even after cleaning the malware, you can still get errors afterwards because of the damage. Solving these is not always possible since it will be searching for a needle in a haystack to find the right cause and solution.So, we can try to clean this up and do what we can, but keep in mind that we can't solve ALL problems this malware already caused.In light of this it would be wise for you to back up any files and folders that you don't want to lose before we start. Reason I am telling this is because when a system is so terribly infected and we try to clean this up manually, the damage that is already present may interfere with our removal attempts. Actually, it doesn't suprise me at all your system is so terribly infected.... I notice that you do not seem to be running Antivirus software and a Firewall.

Well, I messed with the registry when I shouldn't have done, and now my mouse and keyboard aren't working. Lesson learned.

I was trying to fix an external hard drive that had stopped working, and was told to delete the Upper Bounds from the registry in certain places. Unfortunately I seem to have deleted them from the wrong places. My computer will load Windows until the password screen, then I can't use my mouse or keyboard whatsoever.

I have tried Googling various solutions to this problem but haven't yet found a solution that works for my problem specifically.

I've tried Safe Mode (the same thing happens), and trying to boot from my Windows CD installation from the CD drive doesn't make any difference. I have installed the Major Geeks recovery software to a USB hard drive (, have tried to recover Windows by pressing R, and have got to the stage where I have a command prompt. It's asked me for the Admin password, now I've got a C:\WINDOWS> prompt. What do I need to type for it to tell my mouse and keyboard to work?

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270. When I press the power button, the power button light turns amber, I hear some fans spinning, and the CD drive spinning.

If I close the case after it has started, it continues to run fine.

I have an Acer Aspire X1700 (Details
It's about 2 1/2 years old now. Came with Windows Vista, I upgraded it to Windows 7. Also has a newer video card than what came with it.

Anyway, The PSU fan is getting really obnoxious, it gets really loud (more or less like a lawn mower). I have taken the thing apart and have tried every suggestion given to quiet it down, which it does for a whole week or two. This is a small form factor PC, so to even take the power supply out you have to basically take out everything else just to get to it. I have looked for replacements but they are very obsolete. It's only 220W anyway, so i'd like something a little more powerful.

What I want to do is get a larger case that I can use the same hardware is (motherboard, drives, etc) and purchase a larger power supply for that case. 220W really limits the PC. The small case holds a lot of heat even with all fans cleaned and working properly. Even just taking a CD/DVD out that was in it is very hot. I want a case with better airflow than this one.
I really am not sure what kind of case to get that will meet my needs. I don't want anything really fancy. If possible I'd like to get it off

Any suggestions would be great.

I've been experiencing something VERY strange with my keyboard (M/S "Elite" split keyboard) and had assumed it was failing but today I happened to use it on a different machine and discovered that the keyboard is NOT the problem (I'm using it now connected to a notebook).

Here's what happens:

In certain apps (noticeably Outlook Express) the letter "i" seems to be problematic. When typing a word containing an "i", like "Chief", the word will often come out with the "i" and "e" transposed (no, it's NOT my typing) and, very often, after having typed all the letters of a word including an "i" - like "Michael" - the "m" will appear on the screen and then nothing else - even though I've struck all the letters - and after a split-second I'll see "Mchaeli" on the screen.

Also, after invoking All Caps, the first time I use the "i" key it's still lower case. Upon the second use, it's upper case as it should be. Then, after deactivating All Caps, the first time I hit "i" it's still upper case, even though it shouldn't be.

The upper case problem has now extended to "C" and "O", as well.

What could this be? I know it sounds strange, but I'm hoping someone out there has seen something like this.

I recently noticed that the system was trying to do 7 updates every day at closedown, and found that update was giving a return code of 800736b3.

I have run SURT several times, and it doesn't seem to give any results (or should I be looking somewhere else?).

I ran sfc /scannow and extracted the results and they are in sfcdetails.txt (attached). SFC said there were some files it couldn't fix, even though sfcdetails.txt says it has fixed all of them. is much too big to upload using the paperclip - is there another way?

I tried restoring to an earlier restore point, and unfortunately all the attempted updates have flushed my list of restore points - and the oldest few all give me a return code of x00000022.

Not sure if this is one problem or two...! I am reluctant to do a System Recovery as it sounds pretty drastic - help would be much appreciated!

PS Is any more info required?

We recently exchanged the modem as my grandmother works at Time Warner Cable, so, easy task. I've contacted, spoke to Roadrunner, they've 'hit' our modem, to no avail.

Occasionally - it involves my adapter going off. I use a Netgear adapter. What I have to do each time it dies, (which is about..every 1-3 hours of everyday, all day and all night)) is manually reconnect. I use Windows Vista so I have to go to the icon at the tab, and go to Connect to a network then DISCONNECT from ours as it says Connected with limited access even though the two computers icon for the networks options on the tab bar has a massive red X over it. I usually have to repeat this twice as the first re-connect attempt is always unsuccessful. We've tried resetting the adapter and modem more than once. Now, we have two other computers in the household - two laptops. They work just fine. It's only my desktop with this problem.

This only started happening the past few days, btw, since last week or the week before that or so. And we had both other computers before this issue started, so, I don't imagine that's the issue.

This issue really is urgent for me.

Hi Guys

I started having this problem last year soon after I built my system but I ignored it.Basically,after I've on my computer for awhile idle or not,Intel Desktop utilities will suddenly flash(I had IDU configured to alert me whenever there's an error)that all my voltage(+12,+3,3,+5,+1.5,cpu vccp)dropped to 0 volt for awhile(they returned to normal after I went and checked).This had already happened through 3 PSUs and 2 CPUs.Starting I had a Pentium D and a HEC 430w PSU.Then I changed it to a cooler master extreme power 550w PSU and a Q6600 CPU,I bought a OCZ stealthxstream 500w PSU.All throughout this time,IDU keeps popping out with the voltage error.(Btw,last year I returned my board to Intel to fix a botched bios update that I had done,and my HD suddenly malfunction,which I STRONGLY suspect that it's because of the HEC power supply)

Is my motherboard,or some other parts failing?Should I be concerned?

Hope you guys can help me with this.
Thanks in advance

Hi everyone, having a frustrating night getting my ADSL2+ connection going. Just got a Billion 7402G modem/router delivered and I am trying to get it working on an XP PC.

My NIC card works fine, and has the latest drivers. I plug in the modem as described in the manual, and follow all configuration instructions including - Select the Obtain an IP address automatically and the Obtain DNS server address automatically radio buttons.

But I am not being issued an IP address. The manual says this should just be automatic and has no recourse if it is not.

I set an IP address manually within the range of the router, and was able to logon to the modem via the webgui. But no internet access.
Billion support tells me "You should only need to login to router with default settings, navigate to Quick Start page, enter your ISP login details & apply, router should then connect, when finished save config to flash. Nothing else should be required, computer should automatically connect. Ensure that software firewalls aren't blocking access."

OK, so to do this, I need to put in the manual IP address... why is the manual saying to set my LAN connection to obtain IP and DNS setting automatically,and why is this not working for me? Anyway I change the settings to manual and reboot, try the suggestion. All firewalls are disabled.

I have now manually entered an IP address for my PC that allows me to login to the router. Without doing this I cannot even get to this setup pag... Read more

I am trying to upgrade a number of VB3-generation projects to VB6. No .dlls are called in the code (that I write in the forms) but, obviously, some dlls are called when compiling and when generating distribution packages (e.g. COMCAT.dll or MFC40.dll). When the Setup routine runs, my XP laptop sees the 1998 version of the files trying to replace the 2004 versions in WINDOWS/System32 and won't let me continue (rightly so). I assume that these files were incorporated as calls from some (unknown which) of the controls placed on the VB3 forms.

Is there any way to either get around this . . . other than by recreating each of the forms using the VB6 platform? or ???

Ultimately, I want the projects (engineering number-crunchers) to be distributed in a CD on an engineering text I am close to publishing so I want them to run on (at least) XP and Windows 7 platforms.

I went through quite a lot of working out/tweaking before realising that my sole problem of my microstuttering in games is quite simply svchost.exe (netsvcs) in Windows 7. The thing is that that process likes to be idle at about 2-4% of CPU usage, and then about every 4-8 seconds, it would spike up to 25% of CPU usage. I managed to fix my microstuttering issues by closing down that process after windows startup. The current problem is the following - svchost.exe (netsvcs) is a hub for quite a few services which are part of windows, some of which control the way windows looks (what I am saying is that after shutting down that process, some areas of Windows start to look like it's Windows 98, until the process auto-restarts itself in a few seconds/minutes, but without the spiking... well at least not for another hour or so...).
The questions that I have are:

1. Is it normal for svchost.exe (netsvcs) to be running this way (spiking up to 25% etc etc)
2. Which services that are associated with the 'netsvcs' part of svchost could be possibly giving me these problems (I have noticed that the problem seems to start arising when I start using anything internet related)?

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on a PC with a Core 2 Quad Q9650 at 3.0Ghz.

Thank you in advance for all the support!

A:[SOLVED] svchost.exe (netsvcs) giving me microstuttering

Hi AVZ, it's no completely unusual for svchost to cause spiking, although it's not really desirable..especially when it causes problems elsewhere.

try opening a command prompt then running the following command:
tasklist /svc /fi "imagename eq svchost.exe"

That will tell you what services are being controlled by the service host. You can find out the process id of the one causing the problem from the task manager and that will help you narrow things down.

Hey folks, posting after a few infuriating hours trying to get my new build to work.
I used a GIGABYTE Z97X-Gaming 3 and an i7 4790, and when i fit the noctua NHU cooler, it just goes into a constant boot loop if the memory is in dual channel mode, however It will boot up when its not in dual channel

I tried it with the hyper 212 I had lying about, and same thing, it will not boot in dual channel, and it will boot using two none dual channel slots.
It will boot with just one stick in any one of the other slots, just not dual channel.
As a last resort I put the stock cooler in and all of a sudden everything is fine, boots up and runs fine.

This morning I had another crack at it.
I tried using the CPU-OPT and there was no difference.
I also tried using one fan in each, FAN and OPT, but to no avail.
Then I tried using the low noise fan adapters on both fans and using the splitter to plug them into in the CPU-FAN, which it worked with for ten or so minutes before I got blue screen.
I then applied the ultra low noise adapters, plugged them in the same way as above and it seems to boot up and stay stable fine for a while, but still eventually I get blue screen every now and then.

Anyone got ideas what this could be ?
I have never had a problem like this before especially with such expensive hardware.

Hello all, I recently tried installing the latest updates from Microsoft and right afterwards my computer started acting strange. For instance, I couldn't seem to connect to the internet. I tried to do an uninstall one by one but, that looked like it was going to take a while so I rolled back to the day before with System Restore.
Right now I have re-downloaded the updates and I guess I'll try them one by one and see which one causes the problem. I was wondering if anyone else was having any trouble or is it just something with my computer only? I use Windows XP, Zone Alarm, AVG antivirus. Thanks,Toni.

I've recently made a SP3 update on my Windows XP Home. Initially I kept on getting blue screen with this error. I was unable to load Windows or Safe Mode.

STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000001D, 0XF78DE8EA, 0XF78DE7F4, 0XF78DE4F0)

After reading some forums, I've unplugged all my USB devices as some people suggest that it might be the problems with drivers.

After unplugging all USB devices - printer, external HDD and mouse, Windows loaded without problem but I got a new error after Windows finishes loading.

BCCode : 1000007e BCP1 : C0000005 BCP2 : BA5038F0 BCP3 : BA5037F0
BCP4 : BA5034EC OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 3_0 Product : 768_1

I suspect this error has to do with drivers.

At the same time, if I try to plug in any of my USB devices, i.e. mouse, printer or external HDD, the blue screen will reappear immediately. They used to work perfectly when I was on SP2 until last night.

FYI, I'm using Dell INSPIRON 640m laptop with Windows XP Home SP2 until the moment I install the SP3 update.

Hope I can get some help or pointers here. Not impressed with SP3 update definitely!

Thank you very much.

Just about some days ago, i decided to install TortoiseSvN on my Windows 7 RC 1 computer to upload to a project i am developing in on SourceForge.Net - which was a mistake (although, other users have had no problems with it). After installation, i required to restart, so i did. After that, Windows complained telling me that there were corrupt files, so i ran "chkdsk /f" and restarted. It completed quickly. I restarted AGAIN and ran the program i just installed, uh-oh, an error message appears stating: "The program can't start because MSVCR90.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.".

I googled and even binged to no avail! One Google result (there weren't that many) was relating to WinInet, a programming resource, from an MSDN post and stated that you just needed to clear the manifest (whatever that was, no idea), so thinking it was something to do with the registry or some backup file i downloaded, installed and ran CCleaner. Fixed all registry entries (made full backups) that CCleaner said was an "error" and did a junk clean.

I recently bought an Altec Lansing FX5051 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker set and have discovered that, when listening to Itunes, the sound coming from the rear speakers is really bad quality (like 16kbps). It sounds alright when im sitting im my chair and the front speakers drown it out and I still get the effect of surround sound, but its still really annoying! How do I fix it?

This is only when im using Itunes. On Win Media Player, RealPlayer, VLC etc its all good and the quality is great. So im guessing I have to do something in the quicktime Control panel but i jsut cant figure out what.

I have a Dell XPS 420, Service Tag: 4WS2S3J

Now, I'm using windows 7, and I've been getting these constant crashes and bluescreens for a few months now, it happens at least once a day and sometimes up to 4 times a day.

I have tried everything. I've run memory tests. I've formatted and re-installed windows. I've stress tested my computer to the point where I didnt have any ram left or CPU usage ( turned on a ton of programs to see if it would burn itself out for some reason ) and so far, everything has come out clean, but it just keeps going.

Yesterday I decided to just take a look inside the computer so I took everything apart and cleaned it, put it back together and it continued to crash and be a ****.

Then I noticed that my GFX card was giving a bit of noise so I did this thing where you open it up and put some oil in the fan to make it run smoother, that worked but it has done nothing for my crashing issues.

These problems started happening after my little sister unplugged my computer by accident and after that it takes the computer a while to get past the loading screen for the motherboard ( the blue one that just says the type of motherboard I have ) and, ofcourse, the aforementioned bluescreens and DWM( Desktop window manager ) crashes.

Now, I'm begging you. I NEED HELP. I'm going nuts! If you would like the bluescreen information, then I'd be more than happy to send you the .dmp files that have been popping up =).

Thanks in advance!

I have had this same email for around 10 years and even though it's a silly embarrassing name in terms of reliability it has been impeccable as far as I can recall.

All of a sudden tonight it decided to stop sending me emails which I knew I was to receive.

Replies from other forums as well as the sign up activation mail for this forum and another both were not received after waiting over 30 minutes with still nothing (and of course I checked the junk mail).

I tried to send an email to myself from my same hotmail and nothing.

I also tried sending several form other mails and still nothing.

After awhile I was getting one or two reply notifications from different forums come through but now I cannot trust it. I have no idea what is getting through and what isn't as when I got those replies I did another self email check and still nothing.

Any idea what is going on here?

I even checked another hotmail account to send something to that one and it worked fine so I am rather puzzled by this.

Hi all,
I have a Toshiba USB flash drive. I have a problem when I using it on a win2000 sysem. It keeps poping up a warnning message saying I removed the drive. And then "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)". But it is just a standard drive so that does not make sense. Other USB drives have the same issue. I can sometimes get them to work for a bit before this happens. It is almost like I removed it. It also will just do this at random. It is working pops up the warning, then not, wait a few minutes and it is working and conencted again. I tried another ports and same issue. Other USB devices work fine though. The drives in question work fine on another machine.

I cannot seem to find the solution to this. I've even tried Folder Guard trial version and it will not work properly for me.

I have a small network setup. A "server" running XP Pro, and a few client PCs also running XP Pro. The server holds important accounting data. The accounting software, BV, is a client-server software, and requires that the client PC and/or user have full read/write access to the data in order for it to work.

I have setup the client PCs to automatically map a drive to the server containing the accounting data so that BV will work. I'm using simple file sharing and we are on a workgroup.

The setup makes the data vulnerable to changes/deletions/theft and I'd like to protect it from that.

Technically, if it's an OEM disk then, no, you can't install it. If it's a full (or upgrade) version then you should be fine providing it is not installed on any other machine. If you don't care whether it has an OS installed or not then boot from the CD (DVD?) that you have and allow the setup to proceed as far as the disk formatting section. Allow it to format and then cancel the install. Nice clean disk that only a forensic expert would be able to reconstruct any data that was there.
