I have a HP Deskjet 3745 I've had for a year and it keeps getting locked up on the left side and says mechanism error cradle can't move. I can print a test page but when it gets to the bottom of the page thats when it gets locked up. I try to align it but Its printing sideways like the cradle is out of alignment but its screwed in tight plus the lines are overlapping each other like theres a problem with the ink. The ink has 75% left. I sold it and took it over there one day after work so it sat in my car so I think maybe the heat inside the car may have did something. The lady I sold it to just moved and I think they may have dropped it cause theres a black scuff mark on the corner but she said she didn't. I had to give her money back so now I'm left with a broken printer.

Recently, using FF 2.0.0.16 on my Vista Ultimate 32 bit computer, I notices popup ads from c5.zedo.com, when I visited a web page. The pop ups appeared if I left OR right clicked on a text area. The mouse pointer remained a pointer; had not changed to hand with extended index finger.

I verified that FF's popup blocker is / was on. I removed all exceptions & restarted the PC. Same problem. I viewed the page source, searched for zedo and found it related to java script.

I turned off Java, rebooted & the problem went away.

This did NOT occur using IE 7.

I stopped the popups by using the modified hosts file from mvps.org. Because the .bat procedure used by the mvps author to replace the hosts file failed in the past, I copied the contents of the modified hosts from mvps.org & pasted the contents into my hosts file, rebooted & success occurred. I had re-enabled java in FF.

I hope this information is useful to anyone else who encounters the phenomenon.

Firefox's popup blocker does not block all popups, although it does its best. The best way to block ads and the rest of the popups would be to use the Firefox AdBlock Plus extension.

Also, Java is not the same thing as Javascript. They are completely different, and I'm assuming you disabled JavaScript, not Java. However, you don't want to completely disable JavaScript because almost every modern website uses it in some way or another. AdBlock Plus should block the ads, but you can also use NoScript to block all JavaScript on a per-site basis.

My Windows Mail program suddenly stopped sending and receiving messages. The following error message popped up: "Account: 'Windows Mail', Server: 'pop3, Server Response: ERR An authentication mechanism MUST be entered,' Port: 110, Secure (SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800ccc90, Error Number: 0x800ccc18"

I have tried to trouble shoot settings. Everything appears to be correct per my internet provider. My operating system is Vista; I have been using Windows Mail for several years with no problem. Nothing has changed with my computer re: recent updates or new programs.

What is an "authentication mechanism" and how do I set/respond to the error issue? Any available help would be greatly appreciated! (FYI I'm not a computer techie-type so simple-minded (referring to me of course!!!) direction would be especially appreciated! Thank you!!!

Good morning.
 
I'm a third year university student and for one of my assignments, I am to write a research report based on the question 'Are Passwords an Effective Security Mechanism'. I have focused the research on biometric and traditional (alphanumeric combination) passwords. Also, I am required to obtain some primary research which can be argued against my secondary research to form some sort of conclusion, and to do this, I have decided that a questionnaire is the perfect solution.
 
I would appreciate it if some of you would take the opportunity to complete my questionnaire as you will be helping me out a lot. It will take no more than 2 minutes to complete. Also, I would be interested in hearing your thoughts and opinions on biometric and traditional passwords, regarding their security.
 
The survey can be found here - https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/VMS7XPD
 
I apologise if this is in the wrong section or breaks a rule. I have checked the rules out and I believe it doesn't break the advertising rule, but it might to you guys.
 
Thanks in advance.

A:Are Passwords an Effective Security Mechanism

The user is the first and last line of defense. Strong passwords can be effective security measure. Unfortunately, it has been proven time and again that the user is a more substantial factor (weakest link) in security than the architecture of the operating system or installed protection software. Security is all about layers, and not depending on any one technology or approach to detect or save you from the latest threats. The most important layer in that security defense? You! Most threats succeed because they take advantage of human weaknesses (laziness, apathy, ignorance, etc.), and less because of their sophistication.Krebs on SecurityThese were the worst passwords of 2015, and they're only getting worseThis List Of 2014s Worst Passwords, Including 123456, Is EmbarrassingIts 2014 And Our Passwords Arent Getting BetterThe 25 Worst Passwords of 2013

hey,
i just bought a new computer, and assembled it.
everything works great, except that whenever i unplug the computer and then plug it back, i cant turn it back on again for a while.
No lights, no response, like its not in the socket at all. only after a few minutes of being unplugged it lets me turn it on again.
It was very anooying when i assembled the system, and had to wait for a while between adding stuff.
It really pissed me off when i had a power failure in my house for a second, and couldn't use my computer for about 20 minutes later.
Is this a safety thing from enermax? if it is, is there a way i can get around it? or atleast minimize the wait time?
my system, if u think that it might be somthing else:
Processor: Intel core 2 duo E6400
Motherboard: Asus P5B
Mem: DDR2 512Mb 533MHz CL2 Kingston
Graphics: Sapphire Radeon X1950PRO 256MB PCIe
PSU: Enermax Noisetaker 420W

thanx ahead for any help.
 

A:Enermax annoying safety mechanism?

I've got the 475W Noisetaker and a 480W Noisetaker II, never had this problem with either of them. I did static discharge on the case of the comp that had the Noisetaker in it once and it wouldn't power on for a few minutes, but I've never had a problem like you are discribing.

I may be off on those wattages, I can't be arsed to check for sure right now. But I'm not off by more than 15, and its not even relavent to your case.

Recently, the eject button on my dvd drive stopped working. I took off the faceplate and noticed the pin that would push the eject button on the drive was bent, and pushing the button on the drive still caused the drive to eject. So I'm pretty sure it's a problem with the faceplate only.

Does anyone know where I could find a new one? I have a HP dv6000 series (dv6568se)

Thanks!

Hi Gang,

When I try to search my computer, any part of my computer, the search module seems to stall. That is, it doesn't appear to be doing anything for anywhere between 10-30 seconds. After this time the meter starts working and the word "searching" comes up on the search box.

There seems to be a long delay between the time I give the order to search, and the time the search command is actually executed.

What can I do to eliminate this delay?

I have WinXP Pro SP2

Hi Team,
May I know how does windows time works?
During system boot up, after BIOS transfers the ownership to windows, does windows get the time value from CMOS RTC?
After that, how does windows time tick-tock? using PCH's HPET(High Precision Event Timer) or CPU's TSC(Time Stamp Counter)?
Does any interrupt or events will cause windows time pause? such as SMI?
Any documents from windows to explain this mechanism.
If I have to debug an issue relative with windows time, any way to monitor this time during system boot up?
it is a data structure or run time register reading or something else?
Thanks,
-Tarzan

Mine took about 25 mins, but during the installation lots of long pauses while reading/copying files from my 4X DVR+RW to hard drive as if Windows couldn't find files or constantly waiting from the rewritable 4X DVR+RW), but it eventually competed the installation in 25 mins none the less without giving out any error messages.

My email client, desktop program PostBox (for Win) has been slowed since I installed BD TS2016 (I'm quite sure this is the reason as it was very fast before, and slowed immediately after...)

I also run WebRoot AV (which does not scan email as per their documentation) and HitmanAlertPro (which could also be affecting my email client, but I uninstalled it to test this somewhat small chance given its just an anti-exploit, and it doesn't seem to have affected it, the client is still slow).

1. I would LIKE BD to scan my email as of course having AV w/o scanning email could in many ways be pointless given email can be a deadly vector for heavy malware.

2. But I don't want my client to be slow. It's not horrible, and I suppose I could tolerate it (basically deleting messages, loading new messages, and the program responsiveness overall, is a bit sluggish compared with its normal instantaneous response)

3. Is there a way to configure email scanning differently? Or should the program NOT be slowing my client noticeably in general, and is this behavior indicative of something being wrong?

I'm sure BD users will be able to comment on whether it slows their email or not given they use a desktop client like Outlook, Postbox, Thunderbird, etc.

Thanks!

Hey guys, I've been having problems with my PC freezing for no apparent reason. I don't get any error message, no BSOD, no minidump, event logger has no errors, except that Windows started after not shutting down properly. I'm out of ideas here, did memtest, got all my OC settings to default even though I've been using them since 2011 and are 100% stable. What I noticed is when I use Google Music page (https://play.google.com/music/listen) to play some music and leave my PC idle for ~30 mins the freeze has a much higher chance of occuring so I've been using that to test turning off different programs with no luck. It rarely happens when I'm using the computer, never when playing games etc. Best chance of occurring is when there are few programs running and PC is idle for some time which has me extremely puzzled. Temperatures with Furmark running seem to be fine (note these are measured when still overclocked so for stock are even lower):

My PSU is XFX 550W.
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Have you tried running several passes of memtest86+? If not; i would download that to a flash drive and run several passes through that as sometimes it takes several run throughs for errors with your ram to show up. If that does not do anything post back and we can go from there.

Hello-
Recently set up my computer after about a month of it not being used. Worked fine for about a week, but two days ago it locked up watching a video file on Windows Media Player and since then I cannot get it to work again. Sometimes I can get past the login screen but it will freeze up shortly after that. Usually while loading the start up programs but recently it can get about two minutes of usage before everything locks up. No error messages, and it does not try to do the disk check or anything about rebooting.

After some searching on the internet power supply came up a few times as a potential problem. I got a new one about 4 years ago and it is an Allied AL31XB, nothing has changed about my computer that I can think of between the time that it was working great to now.

"Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \Device\HarddiskVolume\system32\config\SysEvent.Evt.  The data has been lost.  This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection.  Please try to save this file elsewhere"
 
At this point, the computer has become frozen and a manual shut down is required.  After rebooting, everything seems fine.  Several days later, it happens again.  It's happened 4 times over the last 2 weeks.  Does anyone know what might be going on and what I can do about it?

My desktop randomly freezes and will not respond to keyboard or mouse inputs. No blue screen or error code is generated when this happens. Originally this occasionally happened shortly after resuming from standby. However, it has progressed to happen randomly anytime the computer is turned on, generally shortly after startup. If task manager is open, no unusual CPU usage shows up. No program needs to be running for this problem to occur. Other than this problem, everything on the computer works normally, and I can sometimes use the computer for hours with no problems. Can someone please help me identify what is causing this problem? I can't tell if it is a virus problem or if hardware is failing. Any help I can get to identify the source would be greatly appreciated!

My computer is a Dell Dimension 2350 with a 1.8 GHz Pentium 4 processor, 1 Gb RAM, running Windows XP Home SP3 with the latest updates. Antivirus software is Avira Free Antivirus, which has been temporarily removed for troubleshooting.

I have run numerous software checks, but have been unable to pinpoint a cause for this problem. The list I've tried is below:
Avira Full Scan: no problems found
DISK CHECK: problems found and corrected
System Restore to earlier date: no change
System Hibernate instead of Standby: no change
Disk Defragment: no change
Kaspersky Online Scan: nothing unusual found
CTRL SCROLL SCROLL: does not work when system is frozen
System Shut-down instead of Standby: no change

Hello

My HP notebook freezes again and again. It started a few weeks ago. I have used all the BIOS self-diagnosis tools, but all tests are passed. I even did a completely new installation of Windows 7 with (as far as I know) all the newest BIOS and drivers. Since the problem persists, I suspect a hardware problem. Even more because I also got two bluescreens during the past few weeks and they both mention an "uncorrectable hardware error". I thought it would be easy with the code to find out by googling, what they mean. But I found so many different things it rather confused me. Does anybody know what the following bluescreens mean? Do they clearly point to a specific hardware part?
STOP: 0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFFA800516F038, 0x00000000B2000040, 0x0000000000000800)
STOP: 0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFFA80051A6038, 0x00000000B2000040, 0x0000000000000800)
If not: What can I do next?

Oh, comes to my mind: It seems that Windows does not freeze as long as I play a video with VLC player. Strange. But of course I am not sure, it is just my impression.

System:
Windows 7 Pro x64
Re-installed about 3 weeks ago; full version (download from MSDAA), not update or OEM
Hardware: HP Elitebook 8530w (2+ years old)

Thanks in advance!

You have a hardware error (0x124). Read the following thread and see if any of it's fixes work.
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Among the fixes in the above thread are a number of stress tests. These are tests that will 'stress' a specific hardware component to check for any defects. To make it easier, I'll post the main stress tests below (RAM, Graphics Card, CPU, HDD):

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Test your video card using Furmark. Watch your machine's temps and stop the test if it starts to overheat or artifacts appear on the screen.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Test your hardware using Prime95. Watch your machine's temps and stop the test if it starts to overheat. Let it run for up to 2 hours or until errors have been found.

Run a chkdsk on the system partition to check for bad sectors or system errors.

Not sure if this is the correct section for this, but I am having major computer problems. For the past couple weeks my computer will randomly freeze. This happens on the desktop, while using a game or application, even on boot up. When the computer freezes it just stays on whatever screen it was on and Ctrl + alt + delete does nothing, have to shut off power and then restart it. I tried to do a system restore to a point older than when it started happening, but this did not fix the problem.
One thing I have noticed is that usually if it is going to happen, it will happen in the first five minutes. If it does not happen in the first few minutes then I can potentially be on the computer for hours. It SEEMS that running a proccessor intensive application, like World of Warcraft for example, will keep the computer from freezing. Although even with a proccessor intensive application running, it can sitll freeze in the first few minutes of booting up. When this happens I basically end up having to shut off my computer and then restart it a few times before I get a "useable session"
I have run spybot and AdAware in the attempt to remove any viruses. Tried the system restore as previously mentioned and also did a defrag. I don't know what else to do, any advice is greatly appreciated. Please let me know what information is needed and I will provide asap.

Hello,
In the past week I've suddenly started having a lot of problems with my Gigabyte P35K-CF2 laptop (purchased in Dec 2013, OS Windows 8.1 64-bit). At any given time regardless of what I'm doing with it, the computer will freeze for a couple of minutes max. The mouse cursor still moves but I can't click anything and the keyboard won't respond.
In addition, during startup the computer may get stuck in a loop of errors and reboots (the errors include INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL). The startup time has also increased significantly from when the device was new, from sub 10sec to around half a minute. Also, today when I figured a fresh re-install of Windows might help, Windows' reset feature complained that the required partition is missing.
I've always installed updates via Windows Update and Gigabyte's Smart Update, and have never deleted anything from the boot SSD's Windows folder. Up until now the laptop has been fantastic and I've really enjoyed using it, but now I'm at a complete loss. Please, can you help me get my laptop back into working condition?
Sincerely,
DrDivi, Finland
 
EDIT: Just now I had a BSOD with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (iaStor.sys), could this be a hint of what needs to be done?

A:Freezes and error/reboot loops

Hello,Please see my previous question "Freezes and error/reboot loops" for the development of my current situation, which has gone from bad to worse.In short, the laptop (Gigabyte P35K-CF2) was constantly freezing and/or showing BSOD either during booting or when Windows was already running. A couple of times the BSODs specifically mentioned iaStor.sys, but mostly it was just inaccessible boot device or irql not less or equal. I couldn't even refresh or reset the system because the recovery partition could not be found.So, I finally tried resetting the Windows installation after changing the SATA configuration in BIOS from AHCI to IDE. The system was reset normally and I managed to install the first set of Windows updates, although the laptop now worked quite slowly. However, after downloading the 8.1 update I haven't managed to boot Windows at all whether in IDE or AHCI mode. Now it doesn't BSOD but won't load Windows either. Is the booting SSD dying or something? Is there anything that can be done? Sincerely, DrDivi, Finland

Thank you for looking.
I have a Dell Dimension E1505 running Windows XP SP2. I was getting a sysguard.exe error dialog box after I booted to the desktop. After a minute my laptop would freeze and I was not able to do anything. My laptop does not recognize any flash drive I insert into any of the USB ports.
I manually removed three sysguard.exe entries in the registry but that did not stop the freezing.
I was not able to install Malwarebytes. The install would never start.

Try putting in your Vista Disk and click "Repair". That will solve any registry problems, and hopefully will get you running.

Since yesterday, my computer has been randomly freezing (even ctrl+alt+del didn't do anything) and I've had to hard-reboot several times.

Today, my monitor just turned off (black screen) and I had to hard-reboot. Upon rebooting, I got a message that said it was a BSOD with error 0x116 which is usually related to graphics cards.

I'm running the latest Beta driver from NVIDIA (301.24) on my EVGA GTX-580 Classified 3GB. I have 4 cards in 4-Way SLI and I am NOT OC'ing them. I only OC them during gaming.

Since this issue just started happening, I'm afraid it's something else that's causing this.

I should also mention that on 04/27/12, my OS drive (2 Corsair Force GT SSDs in RAID-0) showed some error and upon running CHKDSK, it fixed some corrupted areas of the SSD but MS Office just started crashing. After spending five days trying to fix it (reinstalling etc.), the issue never went away; MS Office would not let me reinstall (Office 2010 Pro Plus). So I ended up doing a "Repair Install" and then was able to install Office without any issue. Everything seemed to be working normally again but as mentioned, since yesterday, my computer just started freezing up randomly.

I ran ComboFix and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and neither of them found any problems. I also ran SFC /SCANNOW and there were no integrity violations etc.

Please take a look at the attached DMP files and Perfmon Report and let me know what it says.

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

So I am having a head-scratching issue:

After a certain period of time (usually about 15 or so minutes) my laptop completely freezes except for the mouse. At first I thought it was a page loading error (I was using firefox to check Facebook during the first crash) but nothing worked. Pressing cntrl+atl+del did nothing and so I had to force my laptop to shut down by holding down the power button.

Upon restarting I was prompted to run check disk, but it I let it run and at about 38% complete my computer froze again. The weirdest part is that I have tried booting my computer in safe mode and it freezes in safe mode, yet if I boot normally my computer will fully boot, but then will freeze after a while. No error logs files have been generated by by system, except I did once get a warning trying to use System Restore that my Local Dick C has an error on. I tried running check disk from the command prompt and it wouldn't run.

Any ideas?

Hello,

I'm having a problem that only happens when running a MMORPG, but think the game itself is not the cause. My pc is older (~almost 6 years, I know I should upgrade asap): dell XPS gen 3 pentium 4 extreme HT 3.4 ghz/ 3 GB RAM / win XP professional service pack 3. The vid card I am using is RADEON X800 XT.

The problem is when I often start the PC, there is a noticeably rattling sound which I assume is the fan. After a few minutes it usually goes away or becomes a lot more quiet. Is the fan going out or is this just a case of overheating perhaps? When I'm browsing or playing music/watching videos, the PC never freezes. However when I run the game it will completely freeze and after a few seconds the monitor turns completely black and the green light on the monitor becomes yellow. Sometimes I'll hear a slight screetch noise that accompanies the freeze. Before it freezees sometimes I will see a yellow triangle with exclamation mark that appears in the desktop tray, but when i move the pointer over it or try to right click it it disappears. I did google what this could be and saw it might be a driver issue under hidden devices??

I don't think it's a case of spyware/malware/virus, since I do have AVG / malware bytes / spybot / ad-aware installed and run scans regularly. I have also used combofix to get rid of one problem I did have in the past, that was completely unrelated to this current problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will post a ... Read more

A:pc freezes/black screen: stop error?

Well...I find your post confusing .

<<I'm having a problem that only happens when running a MMORPG, but think the game itself is not the cause.>>

<<The problem is when I often start the PC, there is a noticeably rattling sound which I assume is the fan. After a few minutes it usually goes away or becomes a lot more quiet.>>

Noises...generally indicate hardware problems, with a fan being the logical candidate, IMO. This statement appears to contradict your statement that it "only happens when running...".

<<Before it freezees sometimes I will see a yellow triangle with exclamation mark that appears in the desktop tray, but when i move the pointer over it or try to right click it it disappears.>>

I have no clue why anything would cause disappearing icons.

<<I don't think it's a case of spyware/malware/virus....I will post a hijackthis if necessary...>>

If it's not a malware problem, a HJT log should not even be considered...and it would not be posted in this forum, since this forum does not deal with malware.

It's possible, IMO, that you have multiple problems...a failing fan can lead to overheating...I suppose that malware could be responsible for your phantom icon.

Do you have any Symantec/Norton products installed?

Hello, I have been having lots of trouble with Vista machine for several days now. System boots up, I login, I can see desktop, then after a three or four minutes, the current apps freeze, then I can't do anything. Freezes even if I do not open any apps. Then I try Ctrl-Alt-del, nothing seems to respond. So I have to hold down power button to shut down, then power up, start in Safe Mode. When in safe mode, system seems to run fine. I can access files, etc.

I have tried the suggested method of going to msconfig, turning off all services and startup items, then trying to turn them back on a few at a time to try to isolate which one is causing problems. Last week, I thought I narrowed down to superfetch as the problem, so I disabled it, and my system worked fine for a day, used pc for several hours, then back to freeze problems.

I have also tried going to Event Viewer in safe mode, to review the Errors and attempt to troubleshoot. I am not making any progress.

Alright, let me start by describing what has been happening, and it's very strange, I have never encountered this kind of issue before until recently.
Mind you, this happens when I do just about ANYTHING, ANYTHING...so for example (here lately) I will open up Chrome or Internet Explorer and I'll start browsing the web, forums, youtube, etc...and randomly the best way I can put this is...Everything will stop responding, you wont be-able to navigate through links, cannot open new tabs, cannot close tabs, if I am on youtube the video and sound stops. If I minimize the internet browser everything else I have open such as notepad, skype, paint, a game they will stop responding as well. Task Manager isn't able to be accessed, start menu isn't able to be accessed, opening anything on the desktop such as folders or even the recycle bin will open but they then freeze (And windows pops up a message asking if you'd like to "End the Process" and that also freezes) The whole system become unusable for a few minutes and then everything is back to normal again.
Then today I realized something else along with this, maybe it can help pinpoint what is wrong. I was attempting to burn a DVD eariler today, and this random "freeze" happened during it, during the burning process, of course it stopped responding and then the DVD drive gave me a horrible error - 0xC0AA0301
So what ever this random freezing is, it causes the whole system to literally stop responding, and it's s... Read more

I was playing FFXIV when it started freezing and lagging, which isn't too uncommon in and of itself however, when I tried to restart the game it continued to give me log in errors. Attempting to fix this I decided to restart my computer but when it went to start back up it gave me a no boot device error and then the screen in the picture I attached to this post. I've tried pressing F1 F2 F8 dlt and tab but no matter what I press and when it flashes straight back to this screen. I've had issues before where I was easily able to find multiple threads and answers from other people having the same issue but so far I haven't found anything that resembles the problem I'm having and therefore have no clue as to how to fix it. Please help!

Hey, i came back to this forum seeking assistance yet again. I would like to mention my problem occurred yesterday. Everything is up to date software wise with Windows 7, i have all the latest service packs and updates, i also have all the updated drivers.

I did not do anything extraordinary or strange or different that day. It was like a usual day and next thing i know my computer freezes. I cannot move the cursor, the keyboard is not functioning, and the audio on itunes plays till the song is over and than it stops. I have to hard reboot my computer for it to work again.

I tried some of the methods that was described on the internet such as cleaning the registry with a reliable software (ccleaner). I did that and the problem still occurs. I have tried to do a system restore to 3 days before the problem occurred and the problem still persists. I have also did a scan with eset smart security with the latest updates and it found no virus or anything. So i thought the problem might be if the computer is over heating or some part is over heated, i checked the temperature for all the parts and it is well below 50*C. I now have no idea what is causing this issue because there is no error code or bsod. It just freezes and i have to do a hard reboot.

 jusched error registry key.JPG   18.14KB

While cleaning this desktop PC XP SP3, I used add/remove programs to uninstall all Java entries. A program with no space usage information was on the list that I've tried to uninstall several times, but it freezes the add/remove programs page. The error message that appears is "jusched error registry key" and it opens the Oracle website.

Attached is the print screen of the event. I was able to move out of there and restart the PC normally. Now, if I can upload the pic to this page - sorry, it won't cut/paste but I'm sorry, it looks too small to read. It says "Warning can't delete value ... registry key ... Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\ ..." I am comfortable with filenames, and have looked at the registry, but not comfortable deleting an entry, even if it looks wrong to me...

I am running XP on this machine, not sure what Windows NT is.

I am trying to make sure this PC is clean so I can logon safely to a site. Thank you

Hi all. I hope you can help me because I've been reading a lot of information on the net, trying fixes and I can't get rid of my problem.

I build a new PC two weeks ago and decided to install Windows 7. The system started freezing right away. At first I supposed it was outdated BIOS or drivers related so I flashed the BIOS and updated all drivers available from the Asus website. I still had crashes while navigating, playing, watching clips, etc.

It started freezing up around the same time an update for my video card would not install. The video card is running about 47 degrees C. I did a clean install to change from Windows 7 32 bit Home Premium to 64 bit Home Premium and still freezes randomly. Sometimes it will go a long time before it freezes. I have a NVIDEA Ge Force 8400 GS and I did install the 64 it drivers. I ran Malewarebytes and no problems there. The windows update that will not install is a Graphic Adapter WDD M1, WDD M2. Any ideas.

I've been getting random PC freezes where the screen is frozen, I can move the mouse but can't click anywhere or CTRL/ALT/DEL out of it. It usually happens while playing games or watching videos but has occasionally happened while just navigating my folders.

When I reset after the freeze I usually get the following error in dos "bootmgr is missing, press ctrl, alt and del to restart". I can usually get around this by going into the BIOS and selecting the SSD that is my boot drive.

I've checked the cabling of the SSD and it seems ok as far as everything plugs in goes.

Any ideas on what to do here?

This might be a waste of everyone's time (sorry in advance if so) but I'm having serious problems with this PC and I'm not sure why. When I'm in Windows, everything just freezes virtually every time I switch the computer on, within 15 minutes usually. No blue screen, no error messages, nothing. Pressing control + alt + del has no effect, the only escape is to turn the power off or reset. I don't know what's wrong other than a possible hidden infection or maybe a hardware problem? I don't see any installed programs causing the problem. I have run Malwarebytes and Housecall, which both found nothing wrong.

A:Computer freezes without warning or any error message

Hello red0209,Welcome to the forum.I do not recommend that you have more than one anti virus product installed and running on your computer at a time. The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false alarms". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection. In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:
1) False Alarms: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't.
2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.
Therefore please go to add/remove in the control panel and remove either AVG or COMODO Internet Security. Note that Comodo is more than just a firewall and it has also an antivirus.
Also please uninstall Kaspersky Security Scan as it is running.
Please uninstall Spybot S&D too. The program is not as effective as it was once and it might interfere with our fixes.
Please download Farbar Service Scanner and run it on the computer with the issue.Check all the boxes.Press "Scan".It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.Please copy and paste the log to your reply.Please download MiniToolBox and save it to your desktop and...

A:Autobackup error report freezes computer

Hi hal eisenberg and welcome to TSF.

Has this only just started to become an issue or is it an on-going situation? If it has just only recently started to happen, do you have an anti-virus program installed that may be scanning all attached devices and maybe slowing down the process whilst increasing CPU usage.
Is the backup program set to a certain time of the day, or is it constantly running when the external HDD is plugged in?
Have you ever used a third party program as your backup program instead of the Seagate Autobackup?

The text file you attached in the other thread didn't have any data in it.

Hello,

I'm very sorry this is going to be a long explanation, but I believe I should start from the beginning. So, here goes.

In the past week I've suddenly started having a lot of problems with my Gigabyte P35K-CF2 laptop (purchased in Dec 2013, OS Windows 8.1 64-bit). At any given time regardless of what I'm doing with it, the computer will freeze for a couple of minutes max. The mouse cursor still moves but I can't click anything and the keyboard won't respond.

In addition, during startup the computer may get stuck in a loop of errors and reboots (the errors include INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, sometimes with iaStor.sys). The startup time has also increased significantly from when the device was new, from sub 10sec to around half a minute.

The laptop has always been in AHCI SATA mode before all this started. After the freezes got more frequent and I manage to boot to Windows like once in every ten tries, I figured I should try to reset the Windows installation. After firing up the laptop I went to the recovery menu where you can refresh, reset and so on. I tried to initiate the reset feature a number of times but every time it complained that the recovery partition is missing. After that I somehow managed to boot Windows and went to create a recovery drive with the utility found in Windows. It managed to copy the laptop's recovery partition into a spare external USB hard drive I had. Then I restarted, changed the bo... Read more

Hi all,

I was having a problem with coloured crash screens a few weeks ago. I thought the problem was fixed but now my system keeps freezing and i have to hard reboot it. I've installed a new graphics card but that didnt help. It happens randomly. I ran malwarebytes and it didnt find anything.

All the hardware seeming to be running stable and tests reporting no errors, could mean a bad motherboard.

If we look into the problem in more detail, we can see there is a generic timeout error on one of the buses, this means that the CPU has detected a hardware fault but is unable to pinpoint what is causing the problem.

A:Random Computer Freezes, No BSOD Error

I found the solution.

My motherboard automatically set the memory timing to 9-9-9-24. The spec on the RAM I bought calls for a 7-7-7-24 timing, so I went into BIOS and changed it to that.

So far, no problems, especially after a 4-hour Prime95 stress test.

Hi there,

I have recently started to receive errors when I try to shutdown or restart my computer.

--It will reach the 'Shutting Down' screen with the rotating timer animation.

--Said animation will then proceed to freeze after about 15-20 seconds. My computer used to shut down in about 5-10 seconds before this error.

--After a long time, the computer will then hard rash into the blue error screen that says 'DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE'.

Nothing has really changed to encourage this so I am at a loss for answers. If you can provide any assistance then please do so, I will be very greatly.

Before you decide to got the factory reset route, post back because there are a few things that should be done first.

This is probably not considered BSOD, though it sometimes crashes system - usually just lose display and control so need to force shutdown.

I have had this problem since I built this HTPC in 2010 (Core i3 540 w onboard GPU, P7H55D-M EVO MB. Original system was W7 Ultimate x32 4 GB Kingston SSD. Recently reinstalled to W7 Ultimate x64 8GB Samsung 850 Pro. The problem persists exactly as it did before reinstall.

System is a dedicated HTPC with Windows Media Center, Ceton InfiniTV4 tuner card and LG WH08LS20 Blu-ray drive.

The problem is related specifically to Blu-Ray disc playback using PowerDVD (currently version 14) plugin within Media Center. The problem has never occurred in any other situation.

Scenario: I start viewing a Blu-ray movie. Playback proceeds normally and without issue for some time (typically 10 min to 1+ hours). Eventually display / audio freeze, then display disappears, system cannot be accessed to reboot, shutdown, rdp etc. Only solution is to force shutdown using pwr button. Upon reboot, Reliability Viewer always shows multiple video hardware errors per attached documentation.

I followed instructions for capturing information, though a few days after last occurrence - and again not sure there is BSOD dmp associated with this event. I did however also capture the Reliability Viewer information (1st occurrence and last occurrence) - details which include .dmp files.

Hoping to resolve this finally. Please let me know if addition... Read more

Hi guys!

I came to turn my laptop on on Thursday and it took a very long time starting up from the login screen, but I thought nothing of it. to start with only the toolbar at the bottom of the screen appeared with no desktop icons for a very long time (10/15 minutes) and the toolbar could not be used. After a while it started.

I have then come to use the laptop last night (Friday) and today and the same problem occurs, but the laptop gets more and more temperamental and unresponsive, with Windows Explorer frequently crashing and having to restart itself. I struggle to close any unresponsive programs using the Task Manager as that is then unresponsive too, but also I can now not open the task manager (not even using CTRL+ALT+DEL) as a black screen appears and an error message saying windows failed to load the login screen and security details (or something along those lines).

In addition to this, on the occasion where the toolbar does work, as soon as I click 'start' it freezes, and I cannot click anything.

I have attempted booting in safe mode but exactly the same occurs, if anything it is much less responsive in safe mode.

I have run an anti-virus scan and nothing cropped up. But, I am unsure if it is relevant, my hotmail account was hacked some weeks ago and send out a lot of spam. I put this down to a virus or something like this. Not sure if it is linked.

I think this is all the background information but if I remember anything I will mention it.

Hey, I just got a new computer about a week ago and Ive notice that its been having this weird problem. Its happened about once or twice a day, the last couple of days.

I will be surfing the web or listening to music on itunes and the system will freeze completly to the point where I have to hold the power button down to turn off the machine. On startup I get the screen where it says "windows did not shut down properly.." When I log back in and open the event viewer it shows the same error everytime. "Kernel-Power. Event ID 41. Task Category (63).

I changed my power plan from balanced to high performance thinking it was a power issue.

I also read through this thread: [SOLVED] Kernel-Power 41 (63) error - Tech Support Forum and I noticed that I also have 2 audio drivers and I disabled one of them. But I still encountered the same problem again later.

If anyone could be of some help that would be great. My computer is a HPE-410f. Here are the exact specs of the machine :HP Pavilion Elite HPE-410f Desktop PC Product Specifications - HP Customer Care (United States - English)
Im not overclocking anything, and everything on my machine is stock. If you need anymore information feel free to let me know, because I am new to this site.

Well Im pretty sure Im getting the Kernel-Power error is because Im having to hold down the power button to shut down the computer and it doesnt shut down completly.

But this still doesnt change the fact that my system keeps freezing to the point where I have to press the power button to shut it off. What can I check to see what would be causing this freezing?

I don't claim to be an expert at anything so these are just some random thoughts about what could cause random freezes.

- Hardware components running hot (RAM, HD, video card, etc.) Use a free monitoring tool like Speccy.
- Bad hardware (RAM, HD, video card, etc.) Run diagnostic checks like Memtest86+, SeaTools for Windows, Furmark, etc.
- Follow other troubleshooting suggestions here.

Hi!

3-4 months ago I bought a new MB, CPU, and RAM but I kept the other components from my previous pc which are at least half or one year old.
I started experiencing bsods (mostly e1 but I had one 124 and one d1 so far) and freezes with my new components (everything were fine with my old pc). Anyway when my pc freezes reset does nothing, I have to power off and on again to reset it. (I checked the reset button and works fine).

The issues occur randomly I cannot reproduce them (sometimes 2-3 times a week, other time just 1-2 in a month) however I noticed a few things:

99% of the problems occur when browsing the internet (reading forums or articles in FF) or when I watch movies in MPC-HC x64 (I had a bsod once I watched Youtube) . The strange thing is that I play Skyrim a lot but never experienced any of the above and Firefox usually running in the background. However I tried other pc games and one of them froze my pc. I'm not sure if it's a bug or else but I mostly play Skyrim, I just tried the others so I don't have a lot of experience with the others about bsods or freezes. At first I thought I have a defective component but I think then Skyrim would have to produce bsods of freeze my pc too if this was the case. I'm not overclocking everything. To sum up the issues occurred mostly when I ran not so high cpu or hardware resource intensive tasks.

I tried the following with hardware but no avail:

My desktop randomly freezes and will not respond to keyboard or mouse inputs. No blue screen or error code is generated when this happens. Originally this occasionally happened shortly after resuming from standby. However, it has progressed to happen randomly anytime the computer is turned on, including sometimes during startup. If task manager is open, no unusual CPU usage shows up. No program needs to be running for this problem to occur. Other than this problem, everything on the computer works normally, and I can sometimes use the computer for hours with no problems. Can someone please help me identify what is causing this problem? I can't tell if it is a virus problem or if hardware is failing. Any help I can get to identify the source would be greatly appreciated!

I think the problems started 15th of January this year with a BSOD on my computer while i was browsing the web. Since then I have a feeling the problem has increased with more frequent

*BSOD where the computer automatically restarts, usually with an error report to read.

Typing in some of the error reports on google gave me a certain idea of what it could be, so I tried uninstalling AVG, and first uninstalling then reinstalling the ATI display drivers but to no avail.

Alright, let me start by describing what has been happening, and it's very strange, I have never encountered this kind of issue before until recently.

Mind you, this happens when I do just about ANYTHING, ANYTHING...so for example (here lately) I will open up Chrome or Internet Explorer and I'll start browsing the web, forums, youtube, etc...and randomly the best way I can put this is...Everything will stop responding, you wont be-able to navigate through links, cannot open new tabs, cannot close tabs, if I am on youtube the video and sound stops. If I minimize the internet browser everything else I have open such as notepad, skype, paint, a game they will stop responding as well. Task Manager isn't able to be accessed, start menu isn't able to be accessed, opening anything on the desktop such as folders or even the recycle bin will open but they then freeze (And windows pops up a message asking if you'd like to "End the Process" and that also freezes) The whole system become unusable for a few minutes and then everything is back to normal again.

Then today I realized something else along with this, maybe it can help pinpoint what is wrong. I was attempting to burn a DVD eariler today, and this random "freeze" happened during it, during the burning process, of course it stopped responding and then the DVD drive gave me a horrible error - 0xC0AA0301

So I tried re installing Vista because my Dell Inspiron 1545 was really slow. Everything took forever to open so I thought I might have a virus. I decided to just reinstall Vista. I inserted the Dell installation dvd and attempted to format the hard drive. The laptop froze on me and so I had to restart it. I attempted to boot from the dvd again but after the file loading screen the screen goes black and it sounds like the computer goes into sleep mode. I tried this several times and even switched the dvd with another one in case it was the dvd. Same thing.

So I took out the dvd and attempted to boot it normally and got an error that told me it couldn't find bootmgr and I should press ctrl alt delete to restart. I'm assuming that has something to do with restarting in the middle of formatting.

Is there anything I can do to make the computer start the install disk? Any tips?

Hello all,

Just let me start by saying that I am not very tech savvy, and I am not sure which information will be useful or not. So I will do my best to explain my issue and hopefully some of you will be able to help!

Some info:

I am using an Asus laptop, model U56E. I run windows 7 home premium, 64 bit. Intel core i5-2410M cpu @ 2.30 GHz 2.29GHz. 6 GB ram.

The issue: Lately, whenever I turn on my computer, it freezes after I log in. It will start up fine, but freeze about 30 seconds to 1 minute after I've type in my password. The mouse freezes, cntrl+alt+delete does not bring up my task manager, and I do not receive any kind of error messages or pop ups. My computer will typically make sounds at start up- fans mostly-but when it is just running its virtually silent, so I'm not sure if this is a hardware or a software issue.

I can run in safe mode and everything is fine. It is just the running windows normally that has the issue.
...I update windows very frequently and use avast antivirus to scan often. Defragment it weekly...

- At first, I tried a system restore in safe mode, and it worked. But my recent attempt at that left my system restored and then frozen once more, after log in.
So, my question is: does anybody know what kind of an issue this might be? Or any tips/suggestions on how to fix it would be fantastic. (preferably in laymans terms, as I'm not very tech savvy) Thanks!

My desktop randomly freezes and will not respond to keyboard or mouse inputs, unless started in Safe Mode. No blue screen or error code is generated when this happens. Originally this occasionally happened shortly after resuming from standby. However, it has progressed to happen randomly anytime the computer is turned on, including sometimes during startup. If task manager is open, no unusual CPU usage shows up. No program needs to be running for this problem to occur. Other than this problem, everything on the computer works normally, and I can sometimes use the computer for hours with no problems. Can someone please help me identify what is causing this problem? I can't tell if it is a virus problem or if hardware is failing. Any help I can get to identify the source would be greatly appreciated!

My computer is a Dell Dimension 2350 with a 1.8 GHz Pentium 4 processor, 1 Gb RAM, running Windows XP Home SP3 with the latest updates. Antivirus software is Avira Free Antivirus, which has been temporarily removed for troubleshooting.

I have run numerous software checks, but have been unable to pinpoint a cause for this problem. The list I've tried is below:
Avira Full Scan: no problems found
DISK CHECK: no problems found (Several months ago, I did get a message during startup that the system had recovered from a serious error and had attempted to fix itself. But no unusual results were noticed at the time.)
System Restore to earlier date: no change

I'm using an OEM windows 7 home premiun laptop.

Lately my laptop freezes randomly.

so i first tried reformatting it using the acer erecovery tool but same problem.

next i tried using the windows recovery partition( i have 2 recovery partitions;i'm guessing 1 is acer's and the other is windows') i press the f8 key and a black screen appears saying windows is loading files. the load bar only loads a little bit and then i get another screen sayin i have an error because of failing hard disk (sorry i cant remeber the whole message) but in the bottom i get this:

status: 0xc00000e9
info: an unexpected I/O error has occurred.

I'm guessing my hard disk is failing. and if i want to change my hard disk will this affect my OEM windows? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

Well as the title says My computer has been getting random freezes and random BSOD and also restarts these past few weeks ( it's actually more than a month but let's leave it at that)

Here's the specs of my computer along with other stuff

CPU = Dual-Core CPU E6500 @2.93GHz
RAM = 2.99 GB ( 2 RAM - 1GB and a 2GB)
GPU = Integrated one {Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family}
MotherBoard = P5GC-MX/1333 ( Bios updated with the lastest version)
PSU = ATX-500 500W Switching Mode power supply

I will attach the a couple of BSOD dumps i got since some of the are different.

I also forgot to mention that these freezes happen during bios and on windows

If you need more information just ask.
 

A:Random freezes + BSOD error 0x0000009c

0x9C: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION: This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

Honestly, this is a very difficult error to work with because as it says a clear diagnosis rarely comes forth and I have never seen a minidump with this error code give a definitive answer. I know IT techs that don't like working with it. What makes it so difficult is that it can be any hardware in your system -- and I mean any.

Here are some of the causes that were determined to be the source of 0x9C errors from posters here and abroad: NIC, DVD/CD drives, dust build up around the CPU that caused overheating of said CPU, bulging capacitors hidden by heatsink, video card, psu, motherboard, and external harddrive connected by USB.

Before reading your minidumps and in light of the symptoms your mentioned I suggest running mememtest on your RAM for 7 ormore PASSES.

Have you ever run memtest before?

No error message in the event log, but the computer freezes. This is a hardware problem or software?

A:No error message in the event log, but the computer freezes

Could be both. What was installed/changed between the time the computer was working and now? If nothing changed, you could be looking at a hardware issue.

My Windows XP laptop boots up to the point of the desktop appearing and the icons being drawn. There are two account names but whichever one is used gets the same result. Just after the desktop icons appear, there is the following message: "Windows Defender. Application failed to initialize: 0x800106ba. A problem caused Windows Defender service to stop. To start the service, restart your computer or search Help and Support on how to start a service manually."

At this point, the interface freezes. The mouse cursor still moves, but nothing responds to a click. Clicking "OK" on the Defender message or trying to X it out does nothing. Nothing else, including the Start menu for example, responds either. This condition has existed for about two weeks.

The laptop will boot up into Safe mode and into Safe Mode with Networking. However, the strategies I have attempted in this mode have not solved the problem.

First, I used msconfig to go to the Services tab to see if Windows Defender could be unchecked there. But it does not list Windows Defender.

Second, I tried to remove Windows Defender with Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel. This results in this message: "Add or Remove Programs. The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in Safe Mode, or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance." Not that it would probably help, but the Change optio... Read more

My problem started when I upgraded my computer to an Intel C2D, 2GB Corsair DDR2 Memory, Windows XP Pro, two Liteon LH-20A1S SATA DVDRW's, EVGA nForce680i video and Viewsonic flat screen all running on a EVGA NF680i S775 Mother Board.

Sometimes the machine freezes, sometimes not. The error message is: Source: atapi, Type Error Event ID 9, Description: "The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort7, did not respond within the timeout period". (At times I get Event 15 error)

I suspect it has something to do with the two Liteon DVDRW's I have.

Would anyone know if this is a known problem? I have the latest video drivers.

Thanks,

Alex

HP Envy m6, running windows 8 (side note, my system fan doesn't work, so I get the start up message "press enter to continue or system well shut down in 15 seconds"): turning my computer on it gives me a black screen with a blue box that says "Selected boot image did not authenticate. Press <Enter> to Continue." Pressing Enter turns off my computer. Turning it back on just gives me a blank screen, If left on nothing changes and it will continue to run the computer until the automatic shut off turns off my computer due to over heating.

I attempted "f2 on start up", but it brings up the "system not functioning" message again and freezes (pressing enter doesn't work) until the over heat auto shut down turns off the computer.

Attempted F11, same results as f2 attempt.

Any other suggestions? I would really like to use my computer

A:Windows boot can't authenticate error, freezes

I tried the f2 and f11 solutions again, this time allowing both "cooling fan error" messages pop up, same results. Pressing the esc key does nothing, my computer still freezes on a blank screen and never makes it to the boot screen.

When I log into the IE it freezes on the first click-on, and then goes back to the desk top. I am able to use Google Chrome to get around o.k., but I don't have the normal "file", "view" "tools". etc.

A:Re: XP Randomly Freezes with no Error Message or BSOD

Not sure if this route will work in XP but from Start type temp then click on Change temporary Internet file settings - this will give you the same window as you would get via Tools etc. then under the Advanced tab click on Reset and you can select how much you want it to reset by.
