This is a question for information about why my networking problem finally was resolved.
I have four PC?s on my network; one Windows 7 and three Windows XP. The Windows 7 PC always sees all three of the other computers. However the Windows XP computers sometimes don?t see the other XP computers when I press ?My Network Places.? Quite by accident I discovered that if I press ?View Workgroup Computers? then ALL the other PC?s in the network DO show up. Furthermore, if I click through "View Workgroup Computers" and access/edit a file on one of the other computers, then this computer will ALSO show up in ?My Network Places.? This behavior seems to be quite consistent and works every time I have tried it. Apparently, this is a workaround to the long vexing problem of why my networked PC?s sometimes don?t show up under ?My Network Places.?

My question: why does ?View Workgroup Computers? apparently always show all the networked PC?s, when ?My Network Places? does so only intermittently or sometimes not at all?

Thanks for any response.

Hi there,

I have a problem running Patran 2007 in Windows 7, the program seems to run fine, and I am able to open data bases and work on them. The problem comes in when I want to either save the database, open a new database or just open a current database. For each of these functions a new smaller window pops up so I can navigate to the correct file or path to click on it or whatever.

Initially the window opens as I would expect, but as soon as I move the mouse or try to use the keyboard to navigate, the window goes blank and I can do nothing with it. Strangely, using the compatibility setting to open the program in a 640x480 display, they do seem to work fine, but because of the small resolution, I cannot actually see the part of the window where the files are - so that also doesn't help me.

It seems as though there is something between Patran and Windows that one of them don't like, but it baffles me that everything else works fine. If any one else has had the same problem, maybe with a different program even, let me know what you did to resolve it. Otherwise any advise would be useful.

Thanks
Alan

A:"Flie open" window doesn't display correctly

Welcome!

First, how long has this been going on? Did it start right from the time you installed it?

You may try uninstalling and then reinstalling Patran. If that does not help, try running it in compatibility mode for Vista or XP.

I plugged my laptop into an integra 30.4 receiver via HDMI port (multiple ports) and with the receiver on the right device port and connected to a tv or a projector and I get no audio out of the HDMI port only Video. Video works great!

The laptop is an alienware laptop on Windows 10 (upgraded from windows 7 purchased November of 2011). The HDMI would transfer audio and video in windows 7 intermittently for a year or two. However, I had to turn the tv, receiver, and computer on in a specific order and eventually, approximately 1 hour of doing this each time I wanted audio I'd get the audio over the HDMI cable until I shut down....

I've been on windows 10 now for a while and never have gotten the HDMI audio to work. I kinda gave up but would like to use my laptop now to play movies to my new epson 4k projector and am unable to get audio to work at all. Video is phenomenal.

The HDMI port shows up in the device manager under sound devices. However, constantly shows "Cable not plugged in" whether the cable is or is not plugged in.

It's an older Geforce card - wanna say it's a Geforce 555. Also has an intel graphics adapter as well. I've done all the nvidia updates, windows updates, I've gone so far as removing the sound adapters and rebooting, removing the graphics adapters and letting them reinstall. The HDMI audio port always comes back with "Cable Not plugged in." It's staring me in the face constantly.

Okay guys, I'm at my wits end.

In the device manager, there are two entries for the video card, one being called secondary. The primary one has a code 12.

When I load up Windows, and the ATI control panel goes to load, it gives me an error saying that the driver is either not installed or not installed correctly and then proceeds to close.

I have disabled the onboard video in safe mode, uninstalled the onboard video drivers, as well as uninstalled and reinstalled the ATI drivers about a million different times in a million different ways.

According to e-machines tech support, you can't disable onboard video in the BIOS.

ATI tech support told me that I needed to upgrade my BIOS (and that this problem was common on e-machines) but then e-machines proceeded to tell me that there was not a BIOS update available for my machine.

So one big resounding WTF from me.

As for my specs, I am not entirely sure how to give them to you, but here is a link to my particular model on e-machines website.

I recently upped the RAM to 768MB.

At this point I am just wondering if I ought to save up my money for a better machine.

Everytime I try to open Google Earth, Starcraft 2, or run a Nvidia stability test the application freezes, the screen goes black for a few seconds, and the above message pops up along with error code "8". I also somtimes get "display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered", which then crashes and recovers several times until the whole computer crashes and I get blue screened. It always happens with ten seconds of opening one of those programs. I have tried updateing my graphics drivers, clean installing older drivers, editing the registry, turning off Aero, and using system restore. Nothing works and I am out of ideas.

I thought I was computer savvy until this problem came up. When I double click my computer, recycle bin, control panel, etc, the hourglass comes up for a few seconds, goes off, and nothing else.

A:I cannot open "my computer" "control panel" "recycle bin", etc...

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

For some reason, my "Recycle Bin" will not display the files within it with the correct filters while in the "Details" view.

For example, I have the "View" set to "Details", and the two columns I have showing are "Name" and "Type", with "Name" selected as the preferred sort order.

With those settings in place, the "Recycle Bin" is not displaying the files in the correct order.I am not sure of the order that it is displaying them, as I can't pick-up on any pattern.

For example, it is displaying:

"File0002.jpg"
"File0003.jpg"
"File0004.jpg"
"File0001.mp3"
"File0001.jpg"

When I adjust it again so it displays them in the correct order, the next time I open the "Recycle Bin", the order has returned to the incorrect display.

Any ideas on how to correct this?

The first simple thing you can do is take out your graphics card and check for any signs of damage,
I have blown a 6200 and a 8400 before trying to play games not compatible with them. Signs to look for a black marks and such, also check to see if the fan spins when the computer starts up. Try moving your video cable to the onboard graphics, system should work and if it does you need a new graphics card, dont feel bad, your not a gamer till you blow a nividia card

HP Touchscreen IQ 506 with Win 7 (SP1), recently recovered (since restore points had been lost).
NVIDIA 9300M GS Display Driver version 9.18.13.1106.
Recovery was to Vista, and used upgrade disc to Win7.
Since recovery, I have been experiencing sporadic black-outs, with the message "Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered." This has been the case before, as well as after, upgrading to the present driver version.
Display has always returned, but still a nuisance to have activity interrupted.
Never experienced this prior to recovery, and I have not installed any software which was not installed prior to recovery.
The posts on other forums for this problem, for the most part, refer to use during playing action games. The only games I play are card games, and it isn't necessarily during a game when this occurs. I can be reading email or viewing a site on Firefox.
Any additional info needed?

I just bought a new desktop and within the first hour I had an error message that said, "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered. Display driver NVIDIA kernel mode driver version 186.75 stopped responding and has successfully restored". What the heck is this? Could this be related to Windows 7 and would anyone happen to have any suggestions? What happens is the screen goes black for about two seconds then appears with the above error message on the task bar. This happens very randomly, and maybe three to six times a day (had my computer for about two weeks). Also, two times now it has gone black and not come back! Just a little frustrated to say the least. Thank you anyone!

I installed 7 last night and found out it would not detect my nvidia 6600GT card, even though it is fully supported by windows 7. Found a lot of people had the same problem but no one really had a solution.

This problem occurs when Windows 7 boots up in VgaSave mode (1200px wide max resolution). And trying to install the nvidia driver it tells you "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit"

After tons of trial and error, downloading previous drivers, downloading edited inf files from NVIDIA & Laptop News | Latest NVIDIA drivers and related news | laptopvideo2go.com, I finally decided to flash my bios using a bootable USB stick.

It worked, and windows update was able to download the correct driver, and I was later allowed to install the latest nvidia drivers.

So if all else fails, go to your computer or motherboard manufacturer and download the latest BIOS update.

Hope that helps..

Hello all,

I've spent a good few days trying everything the internet has thrown up to fix my mistake but nothing has worked. I shall list my attempts to fix subsequently.

My problem is this: six days ago, I was using my laptop on its battery and I noticed that the battery icon in the notification bar still showed the mains plug and claimed it was at 100% charge, which it wouldn't be after at least 45 minutes of use.

Plugging my laptop back into the mains, restarting and running from the mains, then unplugging it did not change this icon at all. I searched for a way to fix this problem, and came across deleting and reinstalling the driver from Device Manager > Batteries and deleting "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" then Action > Scan for hardware changes. Unfortunately, I closed the Device Manager window by mistake before I scanned for changes, so when I reopened it the hardware change was not registered, so there was no ability to reinstall the recently deleted driver.


I have tried to: find the driver itself on the Acer driver webpage: it is not there
restarting laptop, removing battery and mains connections, de-charging capacitors, then rebooting to "register" the battery
downloading various .exe files that claim to reinstall the missing driver (these have installed "Microsoft AC Adapter" drivers instead)

I am new here. At first a happy new year to everybody.

Yesterday I bought the boxed version of True Image 7.0 and installed it. During the installing I also made boot disks as well as as a boot cd, both in the "complete" version. After that I tried to boot from the disks and also from the cd (of course changed the bios to boot from cdrom). Both didn't work ! My computer booted and I did get the start screen from Acronis but after that it said: "Loading Acronis, please wait" , with the disks as well as with the cd. After that nothing happened anymore, even after 10 minutes.
I made a new boot cd but this time a "safe" version and that DID work. I assume however that, because there are no usb drivers etc. included, you can't use it with an external usb drive or so.
Does anyone here have the same experience or a clue to solve it ? I already emailed Acronis, but didn't get a reply yet (probably because it's New Year ?)
Thanks in advance.

My Win 7x64 desktop was off for several days, with the console unplugged. Upon first start up today, I was prompted to update the AMD driver to Catalyist 12.10, which I did. It seemed to have an effect on another app that I wanted to reverse, so I ran System Restore to right before the computer was last shut down. It returned an error message, and again after a normal reboot: It read that System Restore didn't complete running. "The data is invalid (0x8007000D)." Running System Restore to later time points got the same result.

Later, I tried a cold boot into System Repair, F8 (nothing found). The System Restore error message now was as follows:

"rstrui.exe - Application error
The instruction at 0xfb30584d referenced memory at
0x00000008. The memory could not be read."

I did a google search on rstrui.exe error, but didn't find a lot and so far none of it has worked. The last system image backup before today was two weeks ago, so that's not a welcome option. Any ideas what the problem might be and how to get Sys Restore going again? Thanks,

A:System Restore doesn't work: "rstrui.exe - application error"

By chance, do you have Agnitum Outpost firewall on your machine? Other forum threads indicate this could cause problems for system restore. The recommended solution was to disable a function called Self Protection.

You could also see if there are any damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from and elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times and reboot your computer after each scan.

Hi,

I had an issue with the general user folder name, which was shown as "Alex_000".
Although this was a cosmetic issue only, I wanted to change this to "Alex".
I successfully managed this by changing about 50 entries in the registry (via regedit).

So fine so good.



Now I found out that there are still some leftovers with "Alex_000" in the Windows system, although I have tried to find every bit and peace, where possible:


When I try to open "Add or Remove Programs" in the Metro surface, I get an error message:


Windows cannot find

From another forum topic, i also tried this command via Metro and RUN to see, if the Remove service has a general problem:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\rundll32.exe C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL "C:\Windows\System32\appwiz.cpl",Add or Remove Programs
--> With this, i can open the Remove service without a problem.


Somewhere in the system, there must still be the Alex_000 info hidden.


How can i find this? (Tried the registry, tried a simple search on C: disc, but without success)

How can I solve this?


Thanks a lot!

Whenever I try to open a file with a program such as Winamp, the programs now "arranges the icons" in some funky random arrangement instead of arranging them by name (or by type, or modified) or whichever order I had preset. When I tell it to "arrange icons by" name or whatever other options, it arranges them....until I try to open something else. Then it's back to the funky random arrangement.

This only happens when trying to access a file from a different program. When I access the folder through Windows, it remembers the arrangement perfectly. Any clue as to what's going on here?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Just recently I had re-formatted, this being one of the problems. It was fixed, and halleluja! I could restart! w00tzor!

I started installing my software and games, and continued restarting.

The last things I installed:

Soundblaster Live! Value Drivers
Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer Drivers

While installing both of them (From CD, I have two drives), I went into MSconfig and dis-abled the AudioHQ that auto starts, and when both of them finished installing (Well SBLive drivers finished a little early) I hit restart, as prompted by my msconfig.

I was greeted by "Primary Hard Disk 0 not found"

"Strike F1 to retry, F2 to enter setup utility"

I hit retry 3 times, and it didn't work. I went into my BIOS Setup, and it said my Primary Hard Disk is an "unknown" device. When I bootup and go into the menu again, It says its my 60 GB drive, as its supposed to.

What happened?

A little info that may help:

Drive C: 60 GB Drive, 7200 RPM, manufactured by Western Digital

Drive D: 20 GB Drive, I THINK its 7200 RPM, manufactured by Maxtor

Both are formatted as NTFS. My computer was booting just fine before I did the previous actions, is there anything I Can do?

[Edit] I checked the other post with a guy having the same problem, and i just remembered:

MSCONFIG would not cause your HD to not be recognised by the BIOS. If your Bios is not seeing the HD there may be a loose wire. Bad cable of the HD may be going bad. Someone made a good point about spinup time in another thread. Myabe the BIOS is not giving the drive ample time to get to speed. If its a newer drive it may be having a problem with the motor. Try downloading Maxtor's HD check utility.

I've got a weird problem here to report. I'm on a Lenovo N200 laptop running Windows 7 x64. Around half the time, the computer will boot up with the trackpad not responding. During times when this happens, I can look into the device manager and see a "code 10" ("device cannot start") for the trackpad. Restarting the computer fixes the problem.

I've had the problem once or twice over the last few years, but just a few weeks ago, it started happening very regularly (+/- 50% of all startup attempts). I can't recall making any notable changes to the system lately that could cause something like this. When the problem first started, it also affected the display adapter (Windows would start with an extremely low resolution and the graphic card would show a similar fault in the device manager, in addition to the trackpad problem described here), but this has since stopped.

I have tried updating the driver for the trackpad to a newer version, but the problem persists.

Hardware faults were considered, but I was able to successfully boot the computer from a WinPE CD five times in a row with no issues, so it would seem like this is less likely to be a hardware bug.

Any ideas as to where to go from here? I don't want to have to reinstall an otherwise clean and functional operating system for something this trivial.

Hello
I have an HP pavillion desktop (s5360f) with Atheros 802.11 a/b/g/n Dualband Wireless Module and D-Link router DIR-615. My numerous Laptops and iPhons / iPads work fine, but this desktop which is further away from the router (in another room, about 20 meters) only shows 1-2 bars of wifi. First I bought a big additional D-Link antenna (7Ghz) but it didn't really help - sometimes connction shows 3 bars. I was told this antenna should help a lot. Then I checked with my router settings and saw that the HP uses "g" connection when everything else uses "n". I even set it to only use "n" but still it shows the HP using "g". I updated the driver (Atheros 9.2.0.113 for AR5B91), but it didn't help. I have "n" enabled in Atheros in Device manager.
Now I'm lost and can't think of anything else that can be a problem and / or how to fix it... I don't have any thick walls between the router and the HP, my iPhone seems to work in this room just fine...
Please help!

I have a Dell Latitude D830 Laptop

I recently replaced my hard drive (sATA) with a fresh one, loaded with Windows Vista. Before even using anything in Vista, I immediately upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, without a hitch.

However, I seem to have lost the ability to select all using CTRL+a; it simply does nothing. Everything else works (ctrl+s, ctrl+x, ctrl+v, ctrl+c).

I cannot remember if it worked for the brief time I had Vista installed before upgrading to 7; it was a relatively short amount of time (like 20-30 minutes), so I don't know if I used CTRL+A then or not.

Any reasons why it won't work anymore, or how I can fix it?

Hi all,

I noticed a really annoying issue on my machine.

When installing various software, when it asks me if I want to customise location, when I click on the "browse" button, it either doesn't do anything or in some cases it will open "Browser For Folder" window, but it will only show my Desktop>Usename folder, nothing else.

Software like K-Lite Codec pack will work fine as in I can change the installation location, but other software wont work :/

I do have mapped network drives if it makes any difference.

Any help would be much appreciated!

A:"Browse For Folder" during various software installation doesn't work.

Which Various Software are you speaking of? Many software programs need to be installed on the C: drive and do not give you the option to install to any other drives. You cannot install to a Network Drive as all programs needs to have access to the Windows Registry on the C: drive. Some programs can be installed to a secondary Local HDD. Stuff like Codecs Packs, which aren't really programs, can be installed anywhere, usually.

Sometime the audio works, but then if I pause a song and attempt to resume it a few minutes later, errors occur and the audio seems to be disabled.



"Windows Audio has stopped working" flashes quickly, followed by:

"Host Process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed
A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available."


Then, if I right click on the small volume icon in the bottom right by the time, go to "Playback Devices" I get the following message:

"This computer cannot play audio because the Windows Audio Service is not enabled.

Would you like to enable the Windows Audio Service?"

I click yes and the audio works again, but even after this it still acts funny.

I should start out by saying that the internet works at the university (we use Resnet), and that when I bring it back home and put in my cable, it doesn't work.

Windows reports that my laptop is connected to the internet, it's just that any attempt to go on any webpage or to ping even the router results in a timeout.

It's not that my router isn't accepting pings, I ping the LAN (not WAN) address (192.168.1.1) and I get no response.

I attached the result of an ipconfig /all:
http://img149.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ipconfigmp8.jpg

In addition, in an attempt to repair the connection via windows results in a message "WIndows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address.

And the 'packets received' in the tcp/ip window are abnormally small.

If anyone has any insight into this issue, please help. No internet on my laptop is driving me crazy. Thanks.
 

A:Internet doesn't work despite "Connected" status

Restart the router as a first, this might sort you out. Also Try an ipconfig /flushdns command and after that ipconfig /release - /renew.
If this doesn't work, try assigning yourself static ip credentials as a test (with a known public DNS server). If this works, log into your router and try and ping the public DNS servers it has listed. If they do not respond, change them to known ones in your area.

I've had windows 10 for several months (previously had windows 7). Up until yesterday, when I clicked on "all apps" an alphabetical list would come up, I'd scroll to what I wanted, and click on it. If there was an item with a sublisting, like Microsoft office a down symbol would appear. Click on that and the sublisting would appear and I could select word, excel, etc. Now when I click on the down symbol it just flips to an up symbol ^ and no sub menu appears. I'd really like to get to excel. This failure to bring up a sub menu happens for every down symbol, not just Microsoft office. What do I do? Try to re-load Windows 10? Uninstall and reinstall Office? Thanks

A:"All Apps" function doesn't work properly

Hi, do you have any idea what happened yesterday? For example, if you look at your update history- did you receive an update?

Do you have System Restore on, and do you have any useful restore points?

Do you use system imaging (Windows Backup and Restore) or disk imaging which we keep strongly recommending here; that means you can restore an image previously created and get your Windows back running as was without technical help - and even recover from a disk failure or an unbootable PC? (e.g. Macrium reflect (free)).

Those could give you ways to recover.

What is your build version? (Windows key + R, winver).

Does this happen with another user account? If you could, try creating another user account in Windows and login with it. If it works there, your windows profile is corrupt and you will have to copy your files and settings to the new user you create.

If it is still happening, try going to a command prompt: Start/in the search box type "cmd" and hit enter.

At the prompt type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

When done, restart and see if the problem exists.
Edit:

Alternately, this may work too.
Click Start.
In the search box, type regedit and press Enter.

Now, right click on the right pane, select New String Value (REG_SZ).

Hi,

I am not sure whether I should be posting this in the Windows forum or the PC Hardware because it involves both.

I have an external 320 GB Transcend Drive with a lot of important data.
Recently, I unplugged it from my PC and took to another to get some files.
One the other machine (Vista), it didn't show up as far as I can remember, thought that was strange so i brought it back to my Laptop (Win 7, Dual Boot with Ubuntu 10) and it only showed as Local Disk, I have tried to find useful information on the net but some is very vague and some is outright stupid and irrelevant.

The fact is that the HDD is not broken. When in Ubuntu I can view the contents fine and everything is there, no freeze ups or anything, but in windows the drive shows up as Local Disk, I don't think it is a drive letter conflict.

The Device shows up fine in the Device Manager.
I'm sure some of you have solved this problem as it seems many on the Internet have.
If so please tell me in a few steps how you resolved it.. I am not formatting as I do not deem this necessary since I can access my data fine in Ubuntu.

The hard drive has suffered data damage in the past due to being cooked in an extenal enclosure but i keep an eye on it. Its no longer in an external box, its inside my pc now.
Speedfan reports no errors on the drive via s.m.a.r.t.
 

A:The run "cmd" command doesn't work anymore

Strange eh?

Have you checked your system for viruses etc?

Hi,

sorry if I missed the appropriate forum - please move the post if necesarry..

Well, this is the first time I encounter this on XP - it seems as if @echo off stopped working, and will not work in a batch file - and instead of the commands in the batch file executing, they are simply printed at output? Example batch file, test.bat:

Code:

@ECHO OFF
dir

executing this, I get:

Code:

F:\>test.bat
OFFdir

Tried restarting the command prompt a couple of times, it didn't help (haven't tried restarting the PC yet - edit: did restart it, no help). Maybe I should mention that this is a fresh XP reinstall, after a serious crash of the previous hard drive - I haven't encountered this problem previously. Does anyone have any idea what might cause this?

Thanks...
 

A:XP Batch: "@ECHO OFF" doesn't work?

think I solved it thanks to: MOVE command does not work from . BAT or .CMD script

tried to run

Code:

F:\>command /c test.bat
Bad command or file name

Then I checked using Notepad++ what is the encoding format - it had shown Mac (!!) - changed that to Windows... then finally did
Code:

F:\>cmd
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

F:\>test.bat

F:\>ECHO OFF
Volume in drive F is fdrive
Volume Serial Number is 4888-2B88

Directory of F:\

10/07/2008 02:49 PM 15 test.bat

so I guess it works now..

Still have no idea what caused it - possibly the Mac encoding corrupted the actively running cmd..

Hi,
some hours ago, I tried to run regedit as usual by using "Start | Run", but it said:
regedit.exe - Unable To Locate Component
This application has failed to start because clb.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem.
​I checked my running processes as well as restarted the PC. clb.dll was located at SysWOW64 (being a 32-bit dll, obviously) but not at System32 (where only 64-bit-files are stored), copying it to System32 didn't change anything.
After a while of searching the inet in vain I realized I hadn't tried to start regedit.exe or regedt32.exe in SysWOW64 (but regedt32.exe in System32, which gives the error), and surprisingly, it worked.

Still the problem remains: I can't start it using "Run" anymore (which worked since 18.05.2005), and I didn't change anything big but uninstalled WindowBlinds (a windows skinning software which worked quite well for many months). Could WindowBlinds be the reason, and if so, how? Moreover, will I experience further problems?
(msconfig still works normally and can be started by "Run"; often, this isn't possible when encountering the regedit clb.dll error)

I would appreciate any help, thank you in advance!
Greetings

Ever since I set up Vista Ultimate on one of my systems, I have been plagued with several problems, one of the most annoying of which is that the "Safely Remove" procedure for flash drives almost never worked and I had to shut down the computer.

I have even gone into task manager and shut down every process Windows would let me shut down except Explorer. Then I left it overnight and the next morning, even after all that killing of processes, the damned thing still would not let go.

Here's a fix that has worked for me over the last two days; I hope it continues to work:

Hello and Happy New Year to all...

I have a 250Gb HD partitioned into three virtual drives: OS 9.7Gb, Programs 48.8Gb and Data 174Gb [after formating and partitioning]. The OS partition shows 2.37Gb free, and the XP defrag utility recommends defraging this partition. When I attempt to do so, the utility runs for a while and then "finishes." However, looking at the fragmentation statistics, the partition is hardly cleaned up, and "analyzing" the partition again recommends defraging. I can do this any number of times, and the MS utility constantly shows significant fragmentation and insists that the partition needs defraging. This does not happen on the other two partitions [programs and data], both of which defrag "normally." Also, the color bar graffics in the defrag utility shows the defragmentation in the OS partition.

Any suggestions as to what's happening here? Thanks much.

Hi guys, just intalled Win 7 after having it some time and I love it. I usually clean out my "sample pictures, music and videos" up after installation. This may or may not have something to do with my minor annoyance. If I go to my user profile and I wish to change my picture, the "browse for more pictures..." link does nothing when I click to it. I dont know if it's trying to reference that folder. I put a new folder and named it sample pictures in C:Users/public/public pictures but still no dice. Any idea how to replace them? fix windows or find them on the DVD and place them back in their appropriate place? I should probably familiarize myself a little more with the OS before I start deleting folders and what not..

As this question was never answered I'll post it verbatim with my own comments below,
See original post here;
http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/756093-flash-drive-s-active-light.html

In all operating systems up to Vista, the flash drive's "active" light turns off when I go through the disconnect procedure; but, in Vista, it doesn't. I have traditionally used this as part of my explanation to others (and a convenience to myself) about when to not to remove the flash drive from its USB port.

This is a problem common to all Vista systems I've seen.

Why does the light not turn off in Vista?

And, is there an easy way to correct this?

Additional information: I have eliminated this problem being hardware-related. I have loaded Vista onto one of my systems here that previously had Windows 2000, then XP on it and it was only with the loading of Vista that the problem developed on this system. Just to be absolutely sure, I did a restore of a previous image of Windows 2000 and the problem went away again. I put Vista back on and the problem came back. So, this is strictly a Vista problem.Click to expand...

I have had the same problem with every Vista system I have used and every flash drive (note this means SSD NAND flash not HDD's or card adapters).

A:Flash drive's "active" light doesn't turn off in Vista when "safely removed"

have done a litte research and testing in my lab on several machines and have confirmd the problem. What it seems to indicate to me is that, in Vista, the light simply indicates power, not data transfer. Whenever I am transferring data, the light blinks.

While I have never actually tested it, I do not belive that the "safely remove" feature actually kills all power to the USB port in XP. If that is the case, then there is really no danger as long as vista has acknowledged the disconnect and knows not to try to write data to the drive.

But it has in the past with the same sound card, Mobo, CPU, OS that i have now. only things i've changed since it last worked hardware wise is doubled the ram and got a SSD drive. I'm fairly up to speed on windows sound mixing and i have set what you hear to default recording device. I've reinstalled the sound card driver and tried different ones, updated the mobo sound chipset, made sure the Mobo's built in audio is disabled in bios. Can't think of what else but i've tried a alot and read a lot about the issue in a google search including several threads on the subject here. The issue is no audio is reaching what you hear because when i play any sound and have the recording devices open, the meter next to what u hears isn't showing signal and in fact it looks greyed out. The meter next to speakers on the playback page does show signal in it's meter.

I don't know what could have happened since it last worked, but this is really driving me crazy because i have a important project i need to work on and have little time before the deadline, and what you hear is necassary to be able to work on it.

I have downloaded the "MSINET.OCX" file and I have put it in the folder "C:\WINDOWS\system32"

I then type RegSvr32 msinet.ocx in the Start/Run, it the say the registration is successful.

I try to open the game again the error message still comes up.

I have tried another method of trying to register the, "MSINET.OCX" file

by downloading the MSINET.OCX file with another file, putting them in the same folder and clicking install. This also does not fix the problem.

You should first try resetting the router by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, still holding down the button, unplug the router for 30 seconds, power back up while still holding down the button for 30 more seconds.

After that it's required that you go into the routers settings and make sure the wireless is set up correctly, you need to add SSID "name of network" set up a password to connect, then choose the security and encryption, WPA2 and AES encryption tends to work best with Windows 7 drivers.

After that check your wireless profile for this connection by going to the Network and Sharing center, look left for "Manage wireless connections" and use the same settings that you used for the router.

If you are still having problems please post the ipconfig/all from this machine and I'll have a look at it.

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

Hi guys i inserted my brother's usb/pen drive /stick in to my computer a week before and just after inserting the pen drive a dialogue box or screen appeared which says ''gotcha you" and "you are in my control".

this same virus caused my brother's laptop to go haywire around two months ago.it slowed the whole OS of that laptop like opening media player took like a couple of minutes also the mouse cursor acted weirdly.so i had to format the laptop's hard drive and reinstall XP.

now i am worried this virus slowing my pc down too.but i really don't want to format and reinstall my XP as all my games and programs are installed and finely tuned.

so anybody knows what is name of this virus/Trojan/spy ware(?) and which anti virus software can successfully detect,remove/delete it from my pc?
I already tried AVG free edition but it can't even detect it and again please tell me the name of this virus if you know so that when the right anti virus software detects it i can delete or remove it with certainty.

thanks for reading my big post

A:Virus says "Gotcha you" and "you are in my control" it's from Usb/pen Drive help

guys this is so weird, I can't figure out how this started happening but now all my control panels in Win7 (x64) have "-OFF" or "-ON" added to the end of the description, here's a screenshot:

how can I turn this off? anybody seen this before??

A:All my checkboxes in control panels have "-OFF" or "-ON" appended WTF?

My guess would be a third party app did that. Installed any "tweaking" programs lately?

When I use the netsh command to set and start the "Hosted Network", I can set the settings fine, but starting the hosted network yields "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.". I have already tried the fix where you enable the "Virtual Adapter" device in device manager, but it did not change anything.
On the flip side, using the "Mobile Hotspot" option inside of the settings starts fine and works correctly.
I am running Windows 10 Pro x64 Anniversary Edition (build 14393) on a Dell Inspiron 7558. The wireless networking card is dual-band 802.11ac.

I originall posted a topic in SevenForums the other day, though I recently found a closed thread here with a problem that sounds very similar to the one I am having; however the one response it got was very dissatisfying to my disappointment.

The thread I found on here stated the following:

I work for an organization with about 300 employees and almost all have computers. I have experienced the following issue on several machines over the years and still cannot find an answer anywhere on the internet, so I am posting here.

I have an HP business desktop that has two parallel ports in it: LPT1 and LPT2. On a rare occasion the printer connected to LPT1 will jam and I have to clear the paper out of the paper path. After I clear the jam, the computer is no longer able to print anything to LPT1. If I use the application that prints to LPT1 again, I get an error in the application stating "The requested resource is in use. (170)" Others on the internet have reported similar errors and in a few cases, the exact same error, but no luck with a solution. Further, there is no error in the Event Viewer's application or system logs.

So, I have tried:
+ uninstalling LPT1 port from the Device Manager, reboot, and still no luck. Same error.
+ uninstalling LPT1 port from the Device Manager, shutdown, disable the parallel port entirely, boot into Windows, shutdown, re-enable the parallel port, boot into Windows. Same error.
+ Reassign LPT1 port to LPT3. Same error.
