Continous R being printed in Windows 7

Q: Continous R being printed in Windows 7

Hi all,

Well not sure if this is the right area for this but not really sure what the problem is.

When I boot my PC during the bootup dos stage I hear my PC making noises, it still boots up Windows 7 ok but as soon as I open something I get continious R type accross my screen, If I hit the caps lock it changes from R to r.

Thought it was my keyboard having the R locked down so tried to fix it, no luck. Changed keyboards with my spare one no luck. Disconnect all keyboards no luck.

So where is this R coming from, its impossible to us my PC at the moment as soon as you click somewhere (word, exel, Google etc) an R/r appears.

Any ideas where to start?

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

A:Record keeping of the printed records & warning user when printed more than one time

could't you just add a field in the record for printed?

Then if printeed true, show warning, else show printable form.

Hi, I'm new here and not a real computer genius type guy but know my around well enough.Here's my problem:My wife and I share the sam home computer, a Dell 5150 with XP media edition. We had Explorer 7 installed and each had a log in account. I had also installed Microsofts' SP3.Now a few months ago (just got around to try to fix this) my wife said she coudn't get any YouTube videos to play when she was logged into her account, she had to log into mine.Then she started describing issues that sounded to me like they were all Java or Flash related. SHe also said she couldn't print emails from some websites.I logged onto her account and poked around and sure enough, no YouTube. Then when I inadvertantly tried to change her Google Toolbar setting, I got an error box popping up that said "An error has occurred in the script on the page" or words to that effect. THere were no descriptors in the catagories for Line, Char, Error Code or URL. They were all blank. And I had to either click the 'yes' or'no' buttons or the close message 'x' at the top right about 40 times for the box to go away, it seems there were several of them exactly on top of each other.SO then I start googling around looking for a fix and one site says to try uniblue registry booster to fix it. I install it, but it won't run. The same script error boxes pile up and freeze it. I have to cntr+alt+delete to close that program.Oh, btw I also had done the usual ... Read more

You probably need the latest version of Flash. Uninstall the old version using the tool at the link and then install the new version at the Adobe website. Then upgrade to IE8. IE6 isn't supported anymore by many sites including Youtube.

So I have a Sony Vaio VGN - NW265F and ive had it for about a 1.5 years now. It runs Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. About a week ago I used the built in recovery drive and reformatted the drive and it was working fine. Yesterday the computer just turned off and everytime i started it, it would go into recovery tools but couldnt find a solution and refused to start. I used the recovery drive again and the computer loads up, gets the BSOD and restarts. This continuously happens.

You apparently have a rootkit, which has been extremely difficult to remove. Many have had good luck with this Kaspersky tool: How to remove malware belonging to the family Rootkit.Win32.TDSS (aka Tidserv, TDSServ, Alureon)?

If you can run that, and it finishes, it should solve your problem. If it won't run, completely wipe the hard drive using the Clean All command, and then reinstall Windows.

Note -- you must have a Windows reinstallation DVD to do this.

Hi everyone?recently, I downloaded a device driver update program(Device Doctor) that I used to scan my XP system. After the scan, it gave me a list of updated drivers. I first created a checkpoint and then downloaded and installed maybe 2 or 3 to my system. Upon rebooting, the system booted to the desktop as normal ,and after about 20-30 secs, spontaneously rebooted again. After watching it do this a number of times, I concluded it probably was due to a corrupted or bad driver(s) that I had just installed, so I immediately thought to try and do a system restore and then uninstall the update program.

After unsuccessfully attempting to do a restore (I would click on the applet and get no response), I then tried rebooting in safe mode and again, could not get any response.( It would boot up to the safe mode menu with options, but I couldn?t do nothing after that). My third course of action was to try a repair install off the installation CD, but about 5-6 mins. into the install, I received a BSOD with the following STOP message: ?A Problem Has Been Detected And Windows Has Been Shut Down To Protect Your Computer.? IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL?. STOP: 0x0000000A(0xF2F4C908,0x00000001,0x00000000,0x807F0773), I tried it again, but received the same error message.

After a bout with a virus it was suggested that I create a restore point and remove all old restore points. It was also suggested that I switch to a different browser. So, I dled firefox but before I installed it I was directed to remove an old version of firefox which I did. I also removed google toolbar and thats when the trouble began. I removed both with windows add/remove feature. Well, now when I boot the computer up I get an error message saying "Windows explorer has stopped working" then it changes to "Windows explorer is restarting" and it gets stuck in a loop. All the while it does not allow me to access anything on my laptop unless I go through the task manager. I was able to run MB and Iam clean. I have been unable to resolve this on my own.. please advise.

Try this - type "msconfig" into the run box. Go to the startup tab, disable everything. Then go to the services tab, check "hide all microsoft services", then disable everything still showing. Reboot.

This will show us if it's something you installed or if it's the OS.

Hello, I have a Toshiba satelite and updated a few weeks ago to windows 10. laptop was frozen so turned power off and now I am in a continous boot loop.  I have made a bootable USB.  I let the laptop drain and was able to get ino the "toshiba setup utility".  Fromm here I was able to change boot order to USB first. I turned on Laptop and still get message: " Your pc ran into a proble and needs to restart. We will restart it for you" Stop code NTFS file system. even with USB starting I get to the first menu then this message pops up again.  I can't even get it to stop. I can't even boot into safe mode.  Please Help. How do I get it to stop the restart loop? Thanks.

I have been researching this for the past couple of days in the net and unfortunately have been unsuccessful at finding ananswer.

heres what i have done so far:
1-booted from windows cd and did STARTUP REPAIR, it found my windows installation and finished without no problems - PROBLEM STILL EXISTS
2-command propmpt and fixboot command unsuccessful since it stays on x: dir and i cant find the c: dir for the right commands
3-SYSTEM RESTORE found no earlier restore points which i found odd but it is what it is.. lol..
4- went ahead and tried installation of windows to see if it recognized my drive on array and it did with the correct size and data.

I tried installing the regrun reanimator to see if it maybe was a root kit problem but the boot up disk didnt recognize my c drive either.

so here i am stuck on stupid!!..

any help will be greatly appreciated!..

I could certainly use some help. I just put another computer on our home network and after downloading the realplayer upgrade I have been getting continous IE popups. I have run ad-aware, shredder, spywareguard and hijackthis scripts with no results. I have run another hijack script and posted it below. Please help me determine what should be eliminated. Also after exiting from the numerous IE pages the computer runs extremely slowly and I cannot even bring up such things as windows explorer without rebooting. Please if anybody can give me some hints I would be very grateful. This has been extremely frustrating for me over several days now. Thank you all in advance.

Hello everybody! I'm running on a Windows 7 32 bit system, self built. Before I go into explain all of the details, here are my computer specs:

My computer has been crashing a lot recently. It never use to happen, it just started within the past month or so. It's not a BSOD, there's no error, no warning.. Just black. When I start up, it's like nothing ever happened. But it's really annoying, whenever I begin to render a video, it crashes almost every time. It also stopped a few times while I was trying to play games and record, but I have recorded in the past. My computer use to be at it's prime but I don't know what changed. I could really use some advice to fix this. Any suggestions would help, I'm really wanting to render up all the footage I have.
I do a lot of video game recording on my PC, I use the program bandicam. Also, my PC doesn't seem to be suffering from overheating, as the harddrive stays cool when it crashes.

Side note: I keep about 50gb free space open on my computer to avoid extra errors :C

Much obliged Feel free to move this to a better-fit topic, I'm not 100% sure of where it's suppose to go.

Thanks for helping me; here is my issue,
Windows XP
Boots to Welcome Screen, then desktop, egg timer continues, computer can be heard to "run" then shuts down and reboots

I believe it is either in boot sequence or in the drives present.

I have picked every option I could on boot sequence, I have turned on and off every drive available. Often times it will read " SATA drive 1 not found" or another drive, if I turn that drive off and choose another same message. I have chosen all the RAID options in the SATA Operation area.
RAID AutoDetect/ AHCI; RAID AutoDetect ATA; and Combination.

I hope this makes sense, I am not exactly Steve Jobs but I can usually figure it out, NOT THIS TIME!! Any help appreciated!

Hi there.

When I had windows xp sp2 installed I restricted access to some folders on a partition which wasn't the partion with the windows instalation. Since then I installed vista and more recently windows 7. I always format C: (windows partition) and leave the other two partions untouched.
So, I always have problems with those ancient permissions. I know how to solve it by taking ownship, but I have to do it every time I format.
Now, I've googled lots of solutions concerning ownnership, but what I want is to solve the problem once and for all, like removing those restrictons alltogether.
Anyone please?
This stuff is driving me insane after every format.

A:Continous problem

Hello & welcome to TGF.

Yes, W7 handles file ownership differently than XP & Vista.

Consider copying files to DVDs or FAT32 formatted flash drives.
FAT32 doesn't use permissions in the same way NTFS uses permissions.

DVDs could give you the option of copying them to optical disk, then changing permissions as needed after you copy them to the hard disk drive.

Possibly some hints here:

Hello all. I recently took on the task of repairing a buddies computer. It's newer pavilion mulitcore processor 6gigs of ram was loaded with the 64bit version of windows vista. What is happening is that whenever you boot windows will act like its loading then BOOM hard restart. After the first time the machine will then load into that screen that says "windows was not shut down properly what do you want to do" where you can select safe mode/lbkgc/start windows normally. Whenever you select any of those options BOOM hard restart. I then proceeded to boot from a live distribution of ubuntu...same thing happens, except with linux being as awome as it is it did not automatically reboot the system. It went into a very limited command line, after it stated this:

BusyBox v1.15.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.15.3-1ubuntu5) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: Input/output error
Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

Anyone have any ideas? Its almost as if the boot.ini file is not being read properly ....that's my best guess....what do you guys think?

Start by testing the hard drive for signs of imminent failure, using the drive maker's own diagnostic software (preferrably the DOS version you run from a bootable CD). Links here:

If no failures shown there, test the RAM with Memtest86 (also using a bootable CD):
Run Memtest for at least 5 passes.

Hi people,

I need some help on a puzzling problem. My ISP TPG has said that my net keeps disconnecting due to a high capacitence in the line. I recently joined them as well and it is adsl2+. They said it means a device is unfiltered, but I already made sure they are all plugged in and have re-plugged them.

I called them up and they said it could be that my adsl line to the phone socket is too long (15m approx.) they said it affects the inteference or something and it could be causing the disconnections. I was told to get the adsl line to 3metres max but I would have to get a long ethernet cable.

I then decided to check if their was a problem with the filters. I tried them both on each socket but I still had disconnections. There is hardly a chance both are faulty. However, when i tried the adsl line with no device connected it did not disconnect at all but I do need a phone. However the other phone socket had a disconnection when tested.

My adsl2+ modem/router is TP Link 8840 and the filters being TP Link as well S102A or something.

So really my first question is if the length of the adsl cable to the phone socket actually matters, some of my friends say it doesn't but I really don't know whether to waste money on an ethernet cable.

Another is whether anyone has ideas of what could be wrong?


PS. I'm sorry it is a super long post

A:Continous Disconnection

Well, they seem to have narrowed down the issue to your interior wiring. If you're using flat cable to connect to your modem from the phone jack to your modem, that IS a problem, and can create the very issue you are talking about.

Here's my fix for interior wiring for DSL/ADSL installations.

Purchase a DSL splitter and install it at the telco NID (Network Interface Device). This is the place the telephone lines come into your home wiring, usually either in the basement or outside near the other utilitiy connections. Run a direct line from the DSL port on the splitter directly to the DSL modem. Connect all of the other phone instruments to the telephone output of the DSL splitter. All of the DSL analog side wiring should be CAT3 or better twisted pair from the telco service entrance to the DSL/ADSL modem. You can use one of the twisted pairs in CAT5 cable if you have that on hand. The splitter I've used in the past is the Wilcom PS-36, it's good for any DSL/ADSL service worldwide.

This is as good as it gets for DSL installations, and will usually solve in-house wiring issues.

Here's a good detailed description of the process: DSL Wiring Upgrade Tutorial

Hi, I am hoping for some help.

Not 100% sure of why this is happening but here goes...

Friday I updated my computer. (I get that little shield on the bottom for Microsoft updates that recomends me to do) Anyhow I did acted ok to the best of my knowledge the rest of the evening. I shut it down for the night.
Next morning I start it back up and it wont fully boot. Goes through the whole process and past the windows screen with the scrolling line load bar then screen goes black then about maybe 3 minutes or so restarts and does the same thing over. I could not get it to go into safe mode, it wouldn't let me go back to a setting that worked etc. until this afternoon when I went into some other process I have no idea where (after I pressed esc at startup) I set my boot something or other to default mode.

Anyhow fast forward to today when I was able to spend most of the day swearing at the computer, checking all of the connections, making sure there was no disk or anything that would mess the computer up. I threatened the life of my computer and made sure it knew of it's firey death if it didn't start and low and behold I was able to load into safe mode with networking.

So here I sit searching the forums here trying to see if anyone had the same issues. I have read of one close and they were told to do a chkdsk/p and /r but for some reason mine wont do that. I did run a virus scan and that said no problems. I did also try to run a spybot progr... Read more

Hi, my system seems to have a couple problems. XP Home edition
It started a couple days ago and I was getting the pop up windows saying - antivirus XP 2010 - your computer is infected ... I
get this message when I tried to open my browser (firefox) or when I tried opening other shortcuts.

Then I researched this problem and a forum said to try malwarebytes antimalware, so I did. It took hours to do the scan (my drives are large) and I quarantined/deleted what it found (maybe too much?). Then selected to restart the computer.

When it restarted, the computer would reboot continuously. It would get to the windows flag, then restart. Next time it boots up it gets to a failure to boot screen that gives me the option to boot in safe mode, with last good configuration. None of these options will work, except when I boot up in safe mode (with or without networking) but I have to hit ESC when it says 'hit esc to cancel loading of SPTD.sys. If I hit escape, then I can get into safe mode.

I tried system restore back to last week, but that does not help.
I can now only boot in safe mode.
I noticed that when I do a google search on firefox, I click on a link and it redirects me off to some other website.

Can you help?

It seems twice a year my desktop computer has a problem here I turn it on and it will not start, it goes to a screen, saying choose "Safe Mode, normal start up ete...) Whatever option I choose the computer will just restart.

I have brought this computer back to the company that built it and they charged me more money to "fix this problem" all they did was reformat it.

I have reformatted it myself it's depressing as it takes up a lot of my time.

Obviously, there is something wrong with the computer this has happened about 8 times now.

It's Windows XP SP2, I believe 4 years old.

Would you believe it's a software problem or hardware?

After several gloomy days of talking to Compaq and posts here I finaly decided to experiment with this system.

History: After suddenly getting constant restarts which eventually turned to dreaded blue screen errors I called Compaq. They had nme to change this, that and the other nothing worked and sometimes the system would start up and run for short periods before restarting. After checking the HD, fans, temps, power supply, drivers, and all sorts of other goodies I decided to formatt, use killdisk, and reload windows. After reloading I didnot have the problem so I considered it fixed. I added all the spyware programs and ran those removing all the goodies that come with a new install. I then proceeded to download SP1 for xp pro along with IE6 SP1. The system was still running great . I left it like this for 2 days and no restarts or blue screens. I then downloaded the rest of the updates for xp pro. After a short time pasted the restarts and errors began again and continued until the system would not even boot beyond click click. I then formated, used killdisk, and reloaded xp pro again. 2 days have past I have installed SP1 for both xp pro and IE along with the anti spyware and all is running good. I am leaving it like this to see if the restarts happen again. I will repost if they do.

I posted this in hopes that someone can help or to see if anyone else has reloaded and not udated and the problem went away or has reloaded and updated windows and the problem returned.

Right... First things first. I got this PC for Christmas 3 years ago. It was supposedly a 5-star computer... Doesn't seem so true now that the company who made the PC's has gone bust :| If anyones wondering who, it's 'Aries'.

Ok, so for the first year of having this PC, it ran perfect. No problems, no loud noises, no system hangs, what you expect of your shiny new PC. However, once the year was out, I attempted to play LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth. I loaded the campaign, and after 2 minutes of playing, the whole PC just went down on me. Like it would when I hit 'Shut Down'. I was so confused, and I just thought I'd knocked something. I opened the case and checked everything. T'was all fine. I tried again, and it hung on me again.

We called an engineer from Aries around, and he replaced all the parts with exactly the same parts. For 2-3 weeks, perfect, again. Then it hung, and since my warranty had gone, I couldn't get it looked at again for free... And being a 14 year old, it was quite hard at the time to go and buy brand new parts.

I decided to get learning some PC basics myself. I've learnt about most of the BIOS, as well as several graphical settings and common problems. However, I'm thinking that the graphics card may be the problem. It's only a Radeon 9550 128MB... Quite cr*p to be honest. At first when I actually managed to get it working (turning off FastWrite made it work) for a few mon... Read more

Over the last few months I have had several issues with Windows 7. I am not very tech savy so please let me know any information I can provide to help with this. Any help is appreciated.

The problem happens after I have installed windows and it has been running for a few days. Programs will stop responding and when I reboot the computer it will get in to a reboot loop. It won't reboot and the repair can't fix it so it just continous to try and boot windows then restart the computer.

I have put in new RAM, video card and motherboard and still am getting this problem. I have reinstalled windows several times and have reformated the hard drive several times.

I am at my wits end. Everything runs fine for a day or two then it all crashes again.

Hey everyone, I have a big big problem.

One day I was sitting down on my laptop and working on the net that all of a sudden i got a popup that said my computer is infected and i should download a software and what not, ofcourse i did not click ok and at first thought it was a pop up until i kept on getting this error every 5 to 10 mins.

I ran a Virus check with Avira AntiVir but that did not help, it should me 0 detection(s). I tried to do a system restore, and this is where i found out that I have another problem, when i go to System Restore and I click on Restore to an older date I click Next it shows todays date and beside it there is no restore point and if i would like to change the date it will not allow me, by that I mean i click on another BOLD date nothing happens, i click to change the month nothing happens again.

Then I decided, reading through some google notes, to download an anti spyware and I was trying to download AVG Anti-Spyware but when the popup comes to Save File or Cancel(there is no open because I use Firefox), I click on Save and yet nothing happens again!....Then I tried to download through Internet Explorer, and this time i tried clicking open it showed that the file was being downloaded but after the download was finished, yet again, nothing happens.

So then i downloaded AVG from my desktop, burnt it, and then installed on my laptop and I ran the anti-spyware check and there were a few trojans and when I clicked to DELETE the trojans it ... Read more

Ok this is my problem: Every once in awhile for no apparent reason my computer completely hardlocks.
I've only noticed it when playing online games, but those are all i play. A few times i have got BSOD's like
and another had to do with an ati driver of some kind.
Two stop messages started 0x00000050 and 0x0000008E

I just recently had a nice geforce 6600GT quit working for no apparent reason and bought a new vid card (in specs)
The thing is at the time of putting that in i decided to completely clean my comp. Which entailed removing
every piece of hardware and cleaing them. Including the CPU and Heatsink. I applied a fresh coat of arctic silver
to it and everything. Now i am not getting any indications that my computer is overheating at all, but i am still
worried that something happend upon cleaning it.

I've had issues in the past with this CPU i've actually had to under clock it to get it working properlly, but that
always fixed my issues so i saw no reason to worry about it. I've actually had it working fine for about a year.
Famous spots it likes to freeze are when playing Counter-Strike Source between map changes on a server when the
loading is being done and in Vanguard while just moving around.

My research tells me that there is a compatibility issue with your video card, and/or spyware, as indicated in this Article from Microsoft?. (For the error message 0x00000050.)

Regarding the error message 0x0000008E, the indication is the video card RAM, as mentioned in this Article from Microsoft?.

I been experiecing a strange problem. When I turned on my computer couple of days ago, it shutdown with no warning and seemed to be a power failure. I pressed the power button to turn it back on,but it didn't do anything until a few min later. After exactly 3-5 min, whatever the system is doing (in bios, disk checking due to illegal shutdowns, windows start up ) it just shutsdown and restarts again after a few min. There is barely anything I can do except hope it would stay on longer than 5 min.I could hardly make it to windows start up since it shutdown even before I can shut it down the normal way.

Iam really unsure at this point my first guess was the processor overheating so I purchased arctic silver to lower its temperature.I cleared the cmos, and unplug and replugged mostly everything, and cleaned the fans since they were quite clogged up with dust . For most of the day I observed it shutdown and restart by itself continously. I finally tried to shut it down normally and skipped checkdisk so it can rest.

I appreciate any help you guys can offer.
Thanks in advance

After several gloomy days of talking to Compaq and posts here I finaly decided to experiment with this system.

History: After suddenly getting constant restarts which eventually turned to dreaded blue screen errors I called Compaq. They had me to change this, that and the other nothing worked and sometimes the system would start up and run for short periods before restarting. After checking the HD, fans, temps, power supply, drivers, and all sorts of other goodies I decided to formatt, use killdisk, and reload windows. After reloading I did not have the problem so I considered it fixed. I added all the spyware programs and ran those removing all the goodies that come with a new install. I then proceeded to download SP1 for xp pro along with IE6 SP1. The system was still running great . I left it like this for 2 days and no restarts or blue screens. I then downloaded the rest of the updates for xp pro. After a short time past the restarts and errors began again and continued until the system would not even boot beyond click click. I then formated, used killdisk, and reloaded xp pro again. 2 days have past I have installed SP1 for both xp pro and IE along with the anti spyware and all is running good. I am leaving it like this to see if the restarts happen again. I will repost if they do.

I posted this in hopes that someone can help or to see if anyone else has reloaded and not udated and the problem went away or has reloaded and updated windows and the problem returned.

Hi, This is my first post here, I'm pretty desparate to get problem this fixed. So here's the problem:
Last night, while watching a DVD and a virus scan running in the background my PC (running XP SP2) crashes. Try to reboot, get a "start in safe mode" screen, all of the options fail: I get to the XP logo, but the PC then reboots without any interaction from me. When rebooting in safe mode with command prompt, it hangs on this line: windows/System32/drivers/Mup.Sys and then reboots are previously mentioned. The rebooting just goes round and round in circles.

Things I've done to try and fix the problem: run partition magic from a recovery disk, scan the C drive and get a CRC error (8 of them), but partition magic won't let me fix it. I've loaded up the Win xp recovery console from CD and run CHKDSK /r and at 40% the "the volume appears to contain 1 or more unrecoverable problems" message.
Finally I can no longer boot from floppy, just CD, which I could at the start, don't know why.

Anyone have any suggestions - I've tried everything I can think of. Also tried to install xp to a different partition, but it says the partition is bad, and needs reformatting (and losing my data since my last backup).

Sorry its a long post, any help would be most appreciated!

I just got my wife a new laptop for Xmas. It is a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 14". Here are the specs:

Core i3 - 370M
4GB Ram
500 GB HD
Intel Wireless ABG
Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit

The first time we started it up, and every time since, the computer does a continuous short/fast beeps once the Starting Windows Screen comes up. It is the black screen that just says "Starting Windows.." The beeping will stop after about 10-15 sec, then the 4 circling dots above the "Starting Windows" screen come up. Then windows will come up normally, and everything seems to work fine.
I have run several tests low level PC-Doctor tests (From a bootable CD) and all of the hardware passes. There are no uninstalled drivers in the Device Manager as well. When I start the computer in Safe mode, the beeping doesn't happen. Also, if I interrupt the windows loading process, by turning it off, then start it up and select "Start Windows Normally" the beeping doesn't happen either.

I also tried formatting the Hard Drive, and installing Win 7 Pro 64-Bit from scratch, and half way through the installation, where it reboots, and starts loading windows, the beeping occurs at that point. I then used the recovery disks, and got the laptop back to factory default settings, and it still happens.

I have Vista Home Premium 32bit. A few weeks ago I tried to install a number of updates for Windows. After installing the updates, my computer tried to restart. On restarting, the system seemed to stall on a page that said completing install 1 of 3, 0% completed. After about 15-20 seconds, the computer shut down and then restarted. This continued to happen over and over and over. Finally, I manually shut down the computer by holding the power button for 10 seconds. Then I restarted the computer and was able to find my way to a system restore. I've tried several times to install the updates but I have run into the same problem. If anyone has any idea how to fix this problem so I can download the updates, I'd sincerely appreciate your help. Thanks

A:Continous beeps but no bios screen

There is trouble here in reiver city... You apparently have a major hardware problem... memory, cpu, video graphics card... But most motherboard manufactures post what all their beep codes mean... they are not the same from one manufacturer to another. But if you go to the manufacturer's web site, and roam around a bit, you should find out what the motherboard thinks the problem is.
Another way is to go back to basics... remove or disable everything except the power supply, one memory module, and video connection, then boot to a floppy disk which has MS DOS or Windows 98 boot on it. If it works, add a piece. If not, change the memory module and try again... keep trying basic hook ups... then if nothing, call tech support of the manufacturer.

This morning i rebooted my well-performing, well protected machine (no virii and minor spyware issues for over a year) and low and behold, this morning my machine starts in a reboot cycle...weird i think but I pop in ERD commander to perhaps look the situation, and my entire c drive is hosed...not data at all on it, altough it is recognized! Completely blank, so I first think file system problem and pop is NTFS GetBack to perhaps fix this problem, but it reports that it now an "unknown type" although ERD reports it as "healthy" and active, but with no valid file system (it is blank)

I am still holding on to the hope that the data is still there, but somehow the file table sector got hosed or something, My next step is the WinXP recovery console to try to rebuild/repair the various thing it can do.

Hi all

This has been posted before but the solutions didn't really help much since some circumstances aren't the same so here we go...

Last week I reformatted my computer just to clear everything up and start over new. Before formatting no hardware problems, no software problems nothing. The problem appeared after the format. This is about my 6th time of formatting and I never had problems before. But now whenever I shut down the computer for more than 2-3 hours and when I start up again from the power the computer brings up DOS-screen: "Sorry your computer did not shutdown properly and this could be due to some software problem...etc" with the options to start in Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Configuration and Start Windows Normally. Selecting any of these options would cause it to perform the load process in the WinXP loading screen for a few seconds and then restart the computer by itself. However, after a couple of tries (15 - 30minutes) of entering different options I do manage to get into windows but as of late the problem seems to be getting worse (harder to get into Windows) and am afraid that I might not be able to start up windows at all. If I select the Safe Mode option it won't load up WinXP in Safe Mode at the first try but after a few it does.

This is something that has been bugging me for a while now, and I've been unable to solve this problem. Perhaps someone out there can provide some guidance.

Sometimes, I'm unable to print things (such as online coupons) because I'm told that my printer is set to "Keep Printed Documents." I've tried disabling this setting via the Advanced tab under the printer's properties. However, when I do this, click Apply then OK, and close the tab, the setting automatically reverts back to "Keep Printed Documents". Does anyone know why this is happening? It's sort of frustrating to not be able to set the printer settings the way you choose.

This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

A driver tried to access an address that is pageable (or that is completely invalid) while the IRQL was too high. This bug check is usually caused by drivers that have used improper addresses.

The other day, I started having a problem with my Dell XPS 420 (refurbished from newegg or tigerdirect). I went to restart it and encountered an error and the computer immediately restarted. It then proceeded to loop over and over, restarting. The restart occurred at the same time that green loading bar shows up. I'm still able to boot in safe mode.

I disabled the automatic restart so I could see what the blue screen error was saying. It said "Page_fault_nonpaged_area" Stop: 0x00000050 0xC5E8ACC8, etc. etc.

I looked around, visited a few forums, not much help. I actually did something dumb and tweeked some of the BIOS settings (I think) by resetting them to the factory defaults. Now, when I restart, it is stuck on a black screen with some white lettering at the top "Storage Manager" or something like that and it stays stuck.

I am able to answer further questions if need be, such as further sys info, just ask me.

Hi, as the topic states, I recently began experiencing a massive slowdown in internet speed and connectivity, and after conducting ping -t tests to see what was going on I've confirmed that there is a consistent packet loss, no less then 2% at any given time. Normally, my connection averages 32ms during peak hours, but recently have been experiencing times as high as the thousands during off-hours (4 in the morning and such). Since I originally thought my bandwidth was just bad, even though this has never been an issue until recently, I ran simultaneous ping tests on both my laptop and with a few other laptops belonging to my roommates. Sure enough, my laptop was the only one experiencing packetloss and high pingtimes, everyone elses was normal (in the 30-50 range for MS, and 0% packetloss over 4 hours). Running a fullscan of Malwarebytes detected nothing, so I downloaded Hijackthis, but can't decipher the log. Can anyone knowledgeable in this area help me understand whats going on with my computer? I refuse to believe its a router/ISP issue if my computer is the only one in the entire house acting up, and the problem only began two or three weeks ago, and had been running splendidly all year.

hello all,
Im using access 2010 and there is a print of a report like a certificate whenever needed. My office is requesting me to provide a report of all certificate printed including the date and to whom .
my only way to do this is to force users to enter a field print (yes/no) and from there the query "yes" and the report be printed.
Is there any way to do this without forcing the user to enter the yes/no. field.

Other than dogging the print preview, and struggling with the size in any pertinent image editing software, has anyone found a reliable way to limit or control the size of a printed web document?
to wit:
I scanned an odd shaped document, 3x8" to email to myself at another site, and the printed form was big enough for two pages. What a waste.
I print receipts regularly and they, 99% of the time have a "trailer" on a last page that has stuff like web site address or URL, a Secure Website emblem, or other, clearly unnecessary printing. My introduction to Windows word processing (WordPerfect) had, and I still use, a "makeitfit" command. Invoking such a command AUTOMATICALLY when printing from the web seems like a simple, brainless way to conserve'll give me a fractional font (e.g. 11.9 vs. a 12) and would prevent the idiotic tendency of a printed page to only have the leftward 80%, l which leaves off the important stuff like the prices...(you gotta print landscape to avoid this)
And I thought a computer was to make life easier, boy was I ever misled)

A:printed size of web documents

The problem is that web pages are usually coded to make them look good on screen, and that tends to make them "unfriendly" when printing.

Web pages designed for printing do exist, and it works well in those (few) cases.

Cutting and pasting into a word processor is sometimes the only workable solution.

I have 3 print queues that are retaining the printed jobs in the queue and every now and again the damn thing prints all the job again. I have checked that the keep printed jobs button is NOT checked/selected, but the queue acts ilke it is selected to keep printed jobs. I have 125 printer queues and only 3 act like this and they are set up identical to the others. I have reconfigured this twice on all 3 and they still act like they are set to keep printed jobs in the queue.

Anyone seen this and know of a solution, on the Microsoft site I am seeing posts but not a single reply about how to either run a job to clear them out a couple times a day or fix this so they act as configured. To NOT keep printed jobs in the queue.

Any help as always is much appreciated.

The race to solution is on, let's see who can figure this one out first.

I'm new here!

First I would like to say I'm a TBI survivor and I'm a male and 42 years old .
I was purchased an emachine computer with a Lexmark lasar printer,
Whenever I go to print something, be it a web site article or a personal document that was created using Microsoft Works Word Processor. Whatever is being printed my name appears at the VERY top and the city and state printed at the bottom.
I know little about computers so I'm trying to get an answer why this is being printed.
The only thing that I can come up with is MY NAME, CITY and STATE was somehow entered on this computer's Hard drive and is prints it because it's been entered by someone at the store before iyt was brought home and set up for me.

If there is someway that I can delete this info. being printed, PLESE tell me what to do EXACTLY!

Thank You!

A:I'm new her! Why is my name, town and state being printed?

That's very strange, it sounds like a 'Header and Footer' has been set up with that info and is in your template. (If Works uses such a template, I know Word does).
Try doing a Find (or Search depending on your version of Windows) for and rename any found to normal.old. Then test the printing again. If there is a problem you change the names back again.

Don't print much multi page output, so am NOT sure when this problem began.

Originally, the pages on my HP DJ855C were printed as expected: page-1 first, then page-2, etc; this resulted with page-1 being on the bottom of the stack. Depending on the application being used, there was often a Print-Order option available for Back-to-Front printing so that the last page would be printed first and then page-1 would be printed last and be on the top in the stacker.

NOW, things seem to have reversed:
If I do NOT ask for the Back-to-Front, then I seem to get it anyway (i.e., page-1 last and on the top). but if I want the original order (i.e., page-1 first and on the bottom) then I must use the Back-to-Front option.
It seems as though the default has become Back-to-Front and then selecting the option for Back-to-Front re-reverses the order and the result is Front-to-Back.

Possibly this reversal happened when I went to Win/XP; possibly it happened with the installation of some piece of software.

Q. Has anyone else had this exxperience?

Please tell me where I might change some parameter to make the option of Front-to-Back actually print the page-1 first like it did originally?

Any advice apprecaited.


A:Order of Pages Printed


Go into your printers and faxes options off of your start menu.

Select your printer, right click the mouse and click on printing preferences.
On the features tab at the bottom there is a option for start printing from last page. If there is a check mark in the box next to it, click there with the mouse and uncheck it and then click on apply and ok and you should be all set after that?

The problem I am having is that when I go to print tax return forms from the IRS site or New York Tax Dept site, the form prints "short", that is, the last four or five lines of each page do not print.

You cannot save the data in these forms, they will only save as a blank form. Your only option is to print it.

However, although Adobe tells how to cure this problem ( by clicking File-Print and going down the menu which comes up to "printer scaling", then chosing "print to fit page", this only works if there is a
FILE menu on the left hand side of the page.

In these tax sites, the forms do not have a tool bar above allowing you to chose a FILE menu.
You can right click the mouse and chose PRINT, however it will print a cut off page.

SOOOOOOO do I either:
1. Get a standard Tool Bar to appear on top of the form, on these web site pages, or
2. use some other device or method to print these documents to fit the page.

If any of you are about to suggest right clicking on the printer icon PRINTERS, in the control panel, forget printer does not bring up anything about "Print Scaling".

Hopefully, some geek out there will read this and solve my problem. Thank you. 44 Guy

A:printed pages cut off at bottom

Every computerized tax form that I have available at the website of the sponsoring governmental agency...and reflects a printed version option which has resulted in everything being printed properly.

I'm not sure where Adobe figures into tax preparation.

If you are using a 3d-party app to do taxes...then the problem resides with the support for that application, IMO.

I am unable to print pictures completely. I print them from Picasa on HP photosmart C4250. When I try to print, although the preview is correct, the printed result is not. Part of a picture will come out, or the image starts at the end of the paper and is therefore incomplete. Until now, everything worked properly.
