Folio 9470m Windows 10 reinstall: mSATA partially hidden?

Q: Folio 9470m Windows 10 reinstall: mSATA partially hidden?

Hello, After upgrading from Win7 to Win10, my system got stuck when uninstalling MS Office, and nothing worked anymore (File Explorer etc.). I tried to make a factory reset, which got stuck, too, and no OS would be detected anymore. Then I tried to reinstall Win10 64 bit, which brought be a bit of trouble. I have an HP Folio 9470 with a 320 HDD and a 32 GB (I believe) mSATA. During my Win10 reinstall, I ran into trouble and then deleted all partitions on both drives and reformatted everything because I thought that was the method for a clean reinstall. First, I installed Win10 on the 320 HDD, but my BIOS did not appear to allow this (although harddisk was in the legacy boot options), which the Win10 installer had already warned me about, so I could not boot from my HDD and thus could not start Win10. Next, I reformatted everything and installed Win10 on my mSATA. However, the Win10 installer and later Windows 10 only showed a size of 11GB for the mSATA. The installation itself already took up 11GB and there was no space left for necessary drivers and updates, and Windows 10 malfunctioned. My feeling is that the mSATA was larger than just 11GB, but that a part of it is not shown any more after deleting partitions and reformatting. After multiple reinstalls, I do not know what to do any more. Any idea what how I might get a functioning version of Windows 10 on my HP Folio 9470m? Best regardsFrank

Trouble started with random system restarts anywhere from 2 to 60min after powering on. That lasted a few days. Than it got worse, it was stopping before system boot with error message: motherboard product information missing. After a soft or hard reset (can't remember now) it stopped displaying anything, only LEDs came on and fan run, all lasting about 5s. I tested RAM in other machine, OK. Pulled HD out, no difference. Put a different HD in, no difference. With DC disconnected and battery out I left CMOS battery disconnected overnight. Now it cycles: LEDs and fan come on for about 5s, all off for 1s and tries again. Any help will be appreciated... Best regards

Hi Guys.

I have a fresh image of Windows 7 on my laptop but it will crash frequently when connect to a VPN.

I have only tested this over WIFI and have yet to test over a wired connection.

I have attached the correct file but I think some files may be missing as I can't seem to get the Diagnostics Tool to do a full run through.

Any help would be appreciated

A:BSOD When Using VPN on HP Folio 9470M

Hi BinaryStar0647.

Your BSODs are caused by Sunbelt Personal Firewall driver, a regular BSOD causer which is disconnected from the market from December 2011.

Seeing your files I realized that the drivers are used by some other thing, GFI Software Firewall.

And it is the driver that is failing here.

Hi @ARtan-Krasniqi? Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting ! Folio is a lovely business class notebook. Most business class notebooks (including yours, Elitebook and Probook, etc...) have better security than consumer class computers. You will have to contact HP Support for business for assistance on removing the password. Here is how >> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html>> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/business-support.html  HP Business support should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file and instructions which you can use  to reset the password.  Hope this helps.

We have 2 x Folio 9470m notebook. 1st has 8GB of memory with the upgraded ram using https://www.skhynix.com/eolproducts.view.do?pronm=DDR3+SDRAM&srnm=HMT451S6AFR8A&rk=20&rc=module  The 2nd only has 4Gb of memory and want to upgrade - I found this other memory cheaper - https://www.skhynix.com/eolproducts.view.do?pronm=DDR3+SDRAM&srnm=HMT351S6CFR8C&rk=20&rc=module  My understanding is the main difference is the what I already have is the Low Power (1.35V vs 1.5V). Does anyone know if Folio 9470m will work with this 1.5V version of the memory? Thanks for your help.

A:PC3 vs PC3L memory for Folio 9470m

From the Service Manual: Two customer-accessible/upgradable memory module slots DDR3 PC3-1600-MHz dual channel support Supports 16384-MB of system RAM in the following configurations: ? 16384-MB (8192-MB×2) ? 8192-MB (8192-MB×1 or 4096×2) The specified memory is 1.5 volt. DDR3L will run at either 1.35 or 1.5 volt but I generally avoid mixing voltages. That is why the DDR3L is working for you and I assume you have 2 of the same in the laptop with 8 gigs.  Can you figure out what is in the 4 gig machine now? I would not mix voltages or density...i.e would not have one module with 8 black blocks and one with 4. Try to match the existing 4 gig module is what I am saying...not the exact brand of memory but the characteristics of it.

Hi, I work in tech support for a company and one of our enterprise laptops mysteriously has lost its "tattooed" information.  The user who had this laptop left the company and when we went to wipe it we discovered this issue.  Upon starting the machine the HP splash screen has in red text on the top left of the screen "Manufactoring Program Mode set 1 of 10" after the splash screen a "Product Information not Valid" screen appears.  It reads: Product Information not validThe following product information programmed into the system board is missing or invalidSYSTEM BOARD (00A)Product Name Product Serial NumberProduct SKUProduct FamilySystem Board CT NumberENTER - Continue Startup For more information, please visit: www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup I know that there is an HP utility tool to "tattoo" this information back onto the machine.  As an enterprise that uses 95% HP equipment (our monitors, mouse, keyboards are the only non-HP equipment) I think that the tech support deserves these types of tools to troubleshoot issues.  Sure the machine boots normally if you hit enter, but it's alarming/scandalous to be presented with that product information not valid screen when powering on a machine.  Bonus points to whoever can provide some reasoning as to how this occurred.

This was his father laptop, and he also has no idea about it. So, I'm left here with this laptop, but no way to tinker around with the BIOS. Obviously this isn't good!All sources lead me to this area where can I contact HP support to try to solve my problem.  I opened up two cases.  First one, case ID 4779632926 and did not get response. Second, 4779725521 and this is response i got. " I  really apologize for the inconvenience, unfortunately we will not be able to support this case."  I tried to reply to this case with subject <4779725521> and then I received message that case is closed. We are sorry, but we were unable to process your request.

I am experiencing the following issue and hope that someone in the forum as an idea / suggestion. When I have the screen connected via via display port cable with the docking station and I have my laptop docked, I dont get any signal and the screen keeps black. This is independent of the Operating System - I used Windows 7, Windows 8. When my laptop is docked but I attach the display port cable directly to the laptop it works without any problem. I have also realized that with other displays 23'' or 24'' the setup with the docking station works without a problem. So it has to be a cominbination between UltraSlim Docking Station and ZR2740w screen. Any advise what else should be tried?

A:HP ZR2740w and HP Folio 9470m / UltraSlim Docking Station

Update:  After calling HP technical support I and being bounced among various clueless offshore tech support reps, I finally landed on the US-based workstation support department.  Justin looked up the problem and identified it as a known issue and is replacing my monitor cable with one that HP says will work.   Also, in the meantime there is a workaround that I had figured out.  If you don't use the displayport port on the ultraslim docking station but pug the cable directly into the computer it works fine.  There is some inconvienence associated with this as you have to plug it in every time you dock and unplug it every time you undock (and of course the cable always falls behind the desk while you are doing this), but it is okay as a solution while I am waiting for the new cable to arrive.  Will update this post after it arrives and report whether it works.

So i'm using a Folio 9470m at work on a 2013 Ultraslim Docking station with 2 Display Port connectors, but if i attach two screens to those it only displays them as one device and mirrors the image on both screens. Furthermore if i go into the screen and resolution settings, both identify as screen 1, but i can set 3840x1080 instead of 1920x1080 and at that moment the picture will span over both screens as one. The downside to this is that the login screen, windows i open for the first time, they're all gonne appear in the middle where the bezels are, it handles them as one bigger screen and not as 2 screens that extend each other. I need them to be detected as 2 seperate screens, and so far i have had no success. Has anyone experienced this or knows a solution? I really don't want to connect the second screen via VGA. Can the folio handle 2 display port connections on a dock? Is this maybe the cause?

I currently have 2 partitions (C and D) on 2 150gig hard drives divided in Raid 0 configuration. Over the past year or so I have been keeping my C drive for my windows xp OS install and apps, while I put all my documents and media on the larger D partition. The idea was that if I ever had to reinstall Windows I wouldn't have to move all my docs and media.

Well today was the day for the reinstall. The problem is that I liked the idea of organizing my documents in the My Documents folder structure, but I didn't want it all to reside on the C partition along with the OS. Therefore I made a MY Documents folder on the D Partition and made it the target of the My Documents folder on my desktop. It seemed to work well. Whenever I put stuff in that folder on my desktop it showed up in the target on my D partition. However, after reinstalling windows today the target folder on my D partition says access denied when and when I try to open it, and shows up as empty (no files) when I get info on the folder. I don't know If I've lost everything or if windows simply can't see my files. I feel like my documents and media are still there since the used space on the partition is still about 40gig which is consistent with before my reinstall. I did try several file recovery utilities (like Pandora) but the files that were found seemed to be files that I actually DID knowingly delete at one time. The utilities didn't turn up files that ...

Hello Snow,

You can unhide that hidden (OPTION TWO, step 2) folder, then just copy the file to where you want for a backup.

Hope this helps,

I have just made a set of HP Recovery discs for my new HP Folio 13 installed with W7-64 bit. I used Nashua DVD+Rs. Before doing anything further with the computer I thought it would be a good idea to test the discs. I changed the boot order in the BIOS placing the (USB) DVD drive ahead of the SSD. It seemed to be working until, "You are not able to restore this system with the media" appeared. Nothing else, only this line. The notebook is brand new and has only Lightroom 2.7 installed. No changes have been made. I have noticed on the forums a number of people have experienced similar problems, but there don't seem to be any resolutions. Is it possible that the disc type is not supported, even though the software allowed the discs to be made? Is there anybody out there who knows what is happening her?       graham

Hello Everyone, We have a Folio 1040 G1 running Windows 7 (64-Bit) and the mouse pad has stopped working in windows. If I boot into the BIOS then the mouse pad works there. So I've uninstalled and re-installed the Synaptics software/drivers (sp75235.exe)   and still no luck. Does the synaptics rely on other Windows 7 components that I may have to repair/reinstall? Thanks in advance.

A:EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 - Mouse Pad not working in Windows 7...

Although if could be a h/w issue, you mention the touchpad works within the BIOS to point around the menus. I would encourage you to run HP SDM (www.hp.com/go/sdm) and update all hardware drivers and BIOS (BIOS needs to be done by itself). That should help with your issue.  Do not install any other software suggested by SDM unless you know you use that particular tool

Hello all:
Here is a good one. I have an HP Elitebook Folio 9470m Ultrabook downgraded to windows 7 Pro. from 8 pro. Sound worked great when first set up. Sales person went overseas with it and sound stopped working. Headphone jack looks and feels ok, not loose, snaps in at right places. Icon on desktop shows speaker with red x. Hover shows No speakers or audio device plugged in.

Uninstalled audio drivers from device manager and rebooted. (did not remove drivers at this run). no change.

Downloading windows 7 drivers from HP for this device using serial number listed under battery results in setup program for audio saying "The hardware detected is not supported by this IDT Software package"

Downloading Windows Vista and Windows 8 drivers from HP.com has same results.

Uninstalling drivers for audio AND deleting drivers then rebooting. Same results.

Motherboard issue?

Restore point to earliest saved point has same results.

SFC Scannow shows no issues.

I will be setting up a usb with Linux mint to test hardware this afternoon.

Excuse my noobness... 
 
I currently have a Dell XPS 15 L521x with a 32 gb mSATA and 750 HDD. The mSATA is used for Intel's rapid start technology. I've read of various people upgrading the mSATA to a larger size and booting from it. Is it necessary to upgrade the size? Could I boot and run windows off of my current 32 gb mSATA and still have access to the 750 gb HDD? 

A:Windows 7 on 32 gb mSATA

Hi clarkpierce!
 
 
 
32GB is way too small for installing Windows 7 there... System + updates + any software + Application data will exceed the 32GB limit very quickly. In my opinion - 60GB is a minimum.

I just ordered the Intel 525 120gb and waiting for it to arrive. I won't be cloning my current windows installation and will do a fresh install.

I have Y580 with a 1TB HDD, with all my files + programs etc.. Basically, I want to ask you if I will be doing the installation process right:

1) Install the msata on board.
2) Change the boot sequence in BIOS to boot from the SSD.
3) Install Windows 7 from a USB on the SSD.
4) Boot Windows 7 and install all drivers + apps.

Is the process right? Also I have two questions:
Won't I have two Windows 7 installation? Would that be a problem? Could I uninstall Windows 7 (while keeping my data files on the HDD) before I install 7 on the SSD?
Is their something I should do to enhance the performance of the SSD? Like installing Intel SSD toolbox and rapid technology?


Thanks!

A:Installing Windows 7 on a new mSATA

Unplug the other HD's during install to the SSD.

Have your network LAN driver in the backup so if its not provided you can get online quickly to do all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates, after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3).

Only import drivers still missing in Device Manager after all rounds of Updates are done with reboots, keep Checking for Updates. Device Manager - Finding Unknown Devices - Windows 7 Help Forums

After install plug back in the HD, shrink old WIn7 partition to move the User folders to a new data partition you make, rightclick each User folder to add to the related Library - Include a Folder - Windows 7 Forums, or from the new Win7 you can move to HD the User Folders - Change Default Location - although moving User folders will make the new data partition on HD a System drive required to be included in Win7 backup images.

If there is a IRST driver it will be installed or you can install it from the mobo maker's Support Downloads webpage.

I can drag it back on to center it, but can't get to the enlarge window button or the close window button.

So... Basically long story short is that I was trying to install windows 8.1 on my new SSD for my laptop. However during the installation process, I accidentally unplugged the USB drive that had the Windows 8.1 install on it and the process was interrupted.

Now whenever I plug in that SSD into my laptop it gets stuck in this "boot loop" kind of deal where I hear it start up and turn off all in a matter of 10 seconds or so and all I get is a black screen.

Without the second hard drive my laptop runs almost flawlessly. Only issue is upon booting up it asks which operating system to use and gives me two options: Boot from Windows 8.1 or Boot from Windows 8.1 volume 4.

So yeah.. Anyone have any tips on how to salvage my SSD from this mess?

Any other details about my situation can be provided, just ask!

I have a Dell Inspiron 5720. When I have Windows 10 installed on internal hard drive in primary slot,
wifi works fine.
I need to have multiple OS. So I add a mSATA 128 GB, an SATA SSD on HDD primary slot, and an SATA SSD  on DVD slot. Now I have Windows 10 installed on mSATA drive, Linux installed on primary slot, and another Linux installation on DVD slot SSD.
Now I have a problem with Windows 10 installed on mSATA SSD. The wi-fi does not work, although the gigabit network interface works fine. I see wi-fi card is recognized in Windows 10 device manager, and function properly. But it shows wi-fi tuned off. Even I go to control panel to turn on wi-fi, it won't actually turn on, and eventually shows wi-fi turned off.
I also notice that in Linux, I can not turn on wi-fi either. When there was no mSATA card, and no SSD drive in DVD slot, I had Linux installed on promary slot SSD, the wi-fi was working also.
So I think there may be a hardware conflict somewhere when I have a mSATA, a primary SSD, and a 2nd SSD in DVD slot.

As my title/topic implies, one of my computers got infected with a pop-up issue that was promoting Windows Antivirus Pro. It more or less completely locked down my computer and as soon as I realized it, I disconnected it from the internet and LAN. After talking with some friends, I tried running a handful of programs to try and remove the infection myself (MBAM, Spybot, Ad-Aware). After some initial signs of success, it came back a few days later. A couple more days work and a couple more runs of MBAM and it seemed to be cleaned out again. Recently my internet browser (Firefox) started acting up again and I'm no longer sure I ever fully cleaned the infection out.

Current symptoms:
McAfee system scan gets stuck in scans after 3 files
Firefox will seemingly randomly open new tabs while running, and seemingly randomly block sites from loading (reloading the site often works) I should mention that most of these sites worked fine previously and include amazon.com, google, and CNN
Firefox will also occasionally close itself

I'm not certain that these are indicative of any remaining infection, but I'm no expert on this, and would like some advice/help. I should also note that due to concern of further infections, or spreading the infections over the LAN my infected computer is no longer connected to the internet or LAN.

Hello all,

i recently upgraded my pc and i mounted on an MSI 870-C45 motherboard, with a 7.1 Realtek ALC889 audio integrated in it.
I've installed Windows 7 Professional x64.

I've installed the drivers that are on the motherboars's cd and i rebooted, as usual, but no sound come from the speakers.
I've tried to open the audio options and i tried something, like to set my 5.1 speakers to make all the spearkers work.

The strange fact is that i did it!
When i test the sound in the configuration panel i hear, one at a time, all the speakers playing the test sound.
But when i play a song, or i load a video on youtube and such things, i can't hear anything!
From the audio control panel i see the volume bar "alive" with the volume that goes up and down..so it should work..

But nothing, not a single sound

Does anyone can give me some advice??

At some point I inserted my recovery disk thinking I could repair what's wrong, but I was prompted the disk was wiping my hard drive. Which was okay. It would always get to the last disk and wouldn't complete installation, so I repeated process. Then I got "bootmrg missing," I use my boot manager repair disk and it got me to my current status.

I recently got a Dell Studio 1737. It has already been to warranty repair due to errors in the HDD controllers, Bios update freezing, not responding or booting.
It had it?s hard drive (HDD 500GB 2.5" SATA 5K Seagate ST9500325AS) and motherboard (Studio 1737 Discrete) replaced. Now it?s back and misbehaving again.

The OS is Windows Vista Home Premium 64BIT SP1.

The first time I started it everything was fine, but then after installing Dell Dock it has started to act weird.

Basically, anything besides Windows Live Messenger (which starts on startup) freezes a few seconds after startup. This includes the start menu, the taskbar, the desktop & anything on it.
Windows Live Messenger and it?s conversations are fully functional until I minimize them - they do not show on the taskbar (which is frozen).
IE7 is only able to use one tab. The others do not function and only show "Connecting..." at the top.
Task Manager opens, but freezes immediately - it shows the same percentages and tasks and only displays the "loading" cursor. It is unclickable.

I figured it might be an update, but for 2 hours and incapacitating the system??

At first I thought it was Dell Dock since besides Windows Live, it stayed fully operational (later I figured it was because they were the only things that started automatically on startup). Therefore I logged on the normal user which was surprisingly not affected, and removed it. I logged back onto the admin user a... Read more

This is for a customer; I fix PCs for a living. Customer has Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit OS.

Customer highlights a sequence of consecutive MS Word 2010 files in his C:\users\UserName\My Documents folder (NOT the My Documents library but the actual folder). He right clicks and selects Print in the pop-up menu. Some print, some do not and the order of printing is NOT EXACTLY the order of the files in the folder.

On previous customer PCs running Vista and Windows XP the above worked PERFECTLY. However, the customer was running Word 2007 on the Vista PCs.

Please note this is NOT the Word 2010 error about "xxxx normal.dot" that Google search will quickly show for bulk printing. There is NO error message. Also the normal.dot error prevents all but the first file from printing ; he gets several files to print.

Also this is NOT printing from a Window 7 library (which did not exist in earlier OS's). A windows 7 library is ACTUALLY links to files in the actual folders and MAYBE bulk printing would not work for a library BUT this is the actual My Documents folder as defined above (full path name).

Also he has only tried this for Word 2010 files BUT that could be because that is all he want to print. The problem could occur with a mix of ANY printable files (ex Word and PDFs); I can not report on whether that is true or not as I only have info from the customer on the phone about this at the moment.

I haven't personally experienced this, but maybe someone else has and can chime in on what they've found. It seems hard to say what the problem could be related to without seeing if it's replicated through other programs, like trying to bulk print 10 notepad files. I would try that first to see if that can narrow it down at all as to whether it's a problem with the bulk print process itself or the bulk print process of certain files.

Q.1 Just wondering if anyone knows where partially transferred files go to, when you download files using the right click 'save target as' command?

Sure, the 'file download' pop up window shows the location the files are to be 'downloaded to:'-but it doesn't show these files until the download is complete-and when i have opened up explorer to search for the file name and/or used the windows search tool-i cannot find where windows is putting these partially downloaded files before they are complete!
I want to be sure that if i cancel a download-it is being deleted and not clogging up my HD.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
Q.2 Another query related to downloading using windows, is that i have noticed that i can only do a maximum of 3 simultaneous downloads using the 'save target as' command (so i can therefore only get a maximum of 3 of those download windows pop up at any given time)-however i know that on a previous format i have been able to do at least 5 at the same time?

Does anyone know how to increase or decrease the number of downloads that windows can carry out simultaneously?

I have an Alienware 17 laptop, and I have had problems with it shutting down while playing games, but it has not happened anywhere else until yesterday, when I started to restore my laptop to factory settings. I was using the Alienrespawn program to reset my laptop, hoping it would solve the shutdown problem, but part of the way through the process, my laptop shut itself down (which is slightly ironic). When I started it up again, and pressed F8 to try and restart the process, it said that I did not have windows installed and needed a disc. I was able to start the computer and log in, but most of my programs had been deleted, so it is basically useless now.

Hi,
After a recent major Windows 10 update, my Intel Rapid Storage Technology decided to stop working and as a result my laptop has been much slower to boot and wake up.
My 3 year old  Inspiron 7720 came with mSATA 32GB SSD that accelerates the 1TB hard drive. I used to be able to choose to accelerate the drive when I open Intel Rapid Storage Technology Manager, but now I can't even see the mSATA SSD in the manager. Also, when I go to the BIOS settings, it says something like "mSATA: No", so the BIOS doesn't see it either. I tried re-seating the SSD but that didn't help. I repaired the iRST manager installation, no go. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, no go. I tried seeing the drive using diskpart, it wasn't there as well. I looked for updates using intel driver updates but didn't find any.
My Intel Rapid Start Manager stopped opening too, and when I reinstalled it, it started giving a "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software." message.
Any tips for troubleshooting this?
Thanks,

A:Windows Live Mail screen partially offset

Welcome to Seven Forums ewpope. The window is correct on the left and top? Or it just appears off center to the right and down? If the latter, try moving the screen.

With the window open press Alt+ Spacebar, you will get Move and Size options

See if you can use one to manipulate the window

If no help, a screenshot would help

Hello, I'm experiencing a problem with Windows, where when I use a program such as windows media player, or msn, the computer will lock up the mouse and keyboard a couple minutes later. Although it is not a complete lock up; I am still able to move the mouse, I just can't click anything, and with the keyboard I can use some shortcuts like CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and the windows key still makes the menu from the bottom left to come up. (although I can't use ALT+TAB or ALT+F4.)

If I log out when it is locked up, and log back in, it will remain locked up. If I restart the computer entirely it works fine, until I run the programs again.

It will not lock up with any games though, which I've found weird, but some other programs such as itunes will lock up. At first I thought it would be something with my sound becuase I first experienced it with windows media player, but after it locked up with only msn live running, I'm pretty sure it is a Windows issue.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I use two browsers simultaneously. When I switch from Firefox window to chrome window, the top half comes black. It doesn't go until I hover my cursor over the black area. I find it weird, it keeps happening every 2 minutes.

Welcome to Seven Forums Gv Sparx. Try disabling Hardware Acceleration in Chrome. I suspect the black screen issue is when switching TO Chrome, correct? Here is the method

If that doesn't work, also look for

About a week ago my computer was infected with Windows XP Repair. I tried following several cleanups from the internet. I've downloaded and used rkill, supeantispyware, spyware doctor and malwarebyte's anti-malware. Still, I am unable to open tdsskiller. Plus, many of my programs in the start menu are hidden. Overall, my computer is running very slowly.

When I shut down my computer, for a couple of seconds something called Sysfader is running. Is this malicious? The same thing happens with something called app.bl87yEIQuTv3qlk4y24YZQ.6

Also I get a bunch of alerts saying that windows couldn't locate something. The last one said it couldn't locate grpconv. What's that?

Last, I have gotten some unresponsive scripts. One called c:/ program%20files/fox/components/nsblocklistservice.j:543

Yesterday I had the Zlob virus -- I removed manually some files that I needed to remove per a program called "SpyNoMore." The SpyNoMore program couldn't delete them because it kept saying I had some other virus program in memory (although I couldn't find anything). Well, at least now when I click on my Internet Explorer icon, it will go to the home page I specify (msn.com). yesterday, it would only go to this safetysettings.com web site and it was maddening. However, yesterday and still today, if I try to open a folder on my desktop, it immediately goes to Internet Explorer, the computer starts beeping, and locks up. Has anyone heard of this phenomenon? I thought maybe I should just reinstall IE, but I don't even know if that is what the problem is. I attempted to do a HiJack this, but the HiJack this gave me two errors. The first error said something about not being able to show the "hosts" file and the last error said "unexpected error at procedure ModMain_CheckOther Item() Error #75 - Path/File Access error. Please - I need some real help here. I do have a HiJack this log, but when it finished running, nothing was checked. SpyNoMore no longer shows that I have the zlob virus, but if that's the case, why won't my PC work anymore?

Vista service pack 2
Weds night shutdown pc, an hour later was still on shutting down screen so I turned off with the button.
Same thing Friday. Daughter was usin it on the Internet playing games and everything appeared to be working until I tried to turn it off.
Today I tried the command prompt thing, sfc/scannow. Couldn't get it to work as every time mouse went into bottom toolbar it froze, having to turn off with button.
I went into safe mode and did the scannow, it said it had fixed something and would make changes after a restart.
Still freezing in bottom toolbar, noticed Internet now not connected.
Safe mode again and did scannow again.
Same results.
I noticed there was a new prof installed on weds ( days first prob occurred) trusteer endpoint protection. Went to control panel in safe mode as I couldn't do it normally, tried to remove, got the message ' the windows installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if the windows installer is not correctly installed. Contact support'
In safe mode ran, ccleaner, spybot, and malware bytes. Spybot found 4 entries and asked me to do something to Mozilla (sorry I don't remember what but I said yes, it wasn't to close it, it was something like fix)
Malware bytes found nothing.
In safe mode restore centre will not open, nothing happens.
In normal vista nothing works, if I go in bottom toolbar it just freezes. If I try to click a shortcut from desktop I get message saying windows not responding and to end or wait.... Read more

Hi

I use Windows 7 Pro and install many time to end user, haven't found this kind of problem ( see attachment ). It doesn't occur immediately and sometime not happen.

At first I call the PC service and they found out that there is problem with the hard disk ( using the diagnostic tools ). So they change the hard disk.

After reinstall all the system it appear again, but this time when i check using the diagnostic tools they not indicate any problem.

Does anybody ever occur with this problem ?

Hello Everyone,

I tried to find a post regarding this issue but I could not find anyone with this same problem

Background

I upgrade a 32 bit windows XP desktop to 64 bit Windows 7 Pro. I performed a clean install from the official Microsoft DVD. Windows XP was working perfectly fine before install of Windows 7.

Problem

Install was very slow (took about 15 hours total to install). After installation, my computer proceeds through the login screen resulting in a black screen with only a cursor which I can move. Occasionally the "thinking circle" will pop up but after 2 hours nothing happens. After reading posts on this forum I tried unplugging everything from my computer (physically unplugged my storage drive, CD-ROMS, floppy drive, pulled out wireless card, and removed sound card). Again, upon start up I get the black screen with only a cursor. I then saw a post that said removing all RAM Dimms but 1 helps and boom everything runs fantastic. PC boots up fast and Windows runs great.

I have 4x 1Gb DDR2 (I know 2x 2Gb would be better but I'm poor and this is all I got ) so I figured one slim must be bad. FYI all 4 slims are identical and each pair is dual channel and I never had an issue with this RAM on the XP install. For this next part lets call my 4 RAM slots slots 1,2,3 and 4 and my 4 RAM slims A,B,C and D.

Slim A in slot 1 = Runs perfect
Slim A in slot 1 and Slim B in slot 3 (Dual channel) = Runs Perfect
Slim A in slot 1, Slim B in slot 3 and Slim C in slot... Read more

I have an HP 9470m Elitebook that will not start up on a docking station. When starting up, it freezes on the "Please Wait" screen before login. I have tried it on 3 different docking stations with the same results. The BIOS are up to date. There is a driver update for the dock available, but it requires it to be plugged into to the dock, and when I dock the computer after start-up and try to install, I get the error message: ?Please connect at least one monitor to the dock and then continue.?  Unfortunately, this computer is also now just about 2 weeks out of warranty.

Hi there, I have an issue with non-responsive Brightness Adjustment on my laptop.  Symptom is that brightness does not increase or decrease when adjusting the setting using the FN Key + F9/F10 which are the designated buttons to adjust. There is also no change when I unplug from power outlett (which in theory should make the screen brightness come down). I have installed the latest bio, and have tried looking for new software/drivers, but to no avail... I simply can't reduce the brightness (and it's quite bright - to the point it is uncomfortable to use at night). Suggestions how to handle?

I was surfing online and randomly this adobe flash installer caused my UAC to pop up asking to allow the install, I know it wasn't flash but it just kept coming up so I shutdown, got into safemode, files looked gone, but I just checked show hidden files. I ran combofix since i've used it numerous times before, but without a script this time. It never showed its logs, but it deleted the infected files. Then I ran hijackthis and found some suspicious stuff running.. RKill shut down some processes for me too, but I don't seem to be able to decipher them well. In conclusion I have hidden files all across my system now, my program shortcuts aren't in the start menu, except remote desktop connection.. I did have to remove the virus causing the popups and all to come. I did not record down the name, didn't even think of it.
