Radeon HD 3850 AGP, driver doesn't work.

Q: Radeon HD 3850 AGP, driver doesn't work.

Hello. I have Radeon HD 3850 AGP and Win7, and I tried to do almost everything ...
I installed 9.12 drivers, 9.12 drivers with adding CL_91526 from the topic above), 9.11 drivers, 9.11 drivers with Hotfix (ATI), 9.11 drivers with adding CL_91526, manual driver install by right click . Absolutely no changes and everytime the same ... During and after installing (before reboot) no changes in Device Manager, having "ATI Radeon 3850 " (or "ATI Radeon 3800 series" or something like that...) with yellow triangle and Microsoft Co. driver. And after reboot no changes with it, an error message with something like "Driver didn't install correctly, please install proper driver" ( though in ATI install log you can see that everything was installed succesfully). So after reboot I still see my VGA like "ATI Radeon 3800 series" with Microsoft driver and of course no changes in monitor resolution and all. If I try to delete microsoft driver (and device), and then install radeon drivers , during installation I absolutely just don't have any VGA in Device manager. And after reboot Win7 "finds" VGA and install from internet microsoft driver, so I can see "ATI Radeon HD 3850 (Microsoft Corporation WDDM 1.1)" in Device Manager.

I think that radeon drivers don't install (or don't install correctly), and Win7 ignores (or doesn't see) them.

Please help... Maybe I do something wrong ?...

Welcome to seven forums AngieM: Unfortunately you have a pretty old system a socket 478 board I would suggest first off to use 32 git seven and try the method in this thread to try and get your driver to install. Not every systems hardware is up to running windows seven Install AGP Drivers for HD 3850, 3650, 2400 PRO This is the only method I know of that will install the agp driver, Are you sure you are following the directions EXACTLY the way they are written and installing form device manager? If so then it is possible your system may just be to outdated to run win 7 Sorry to tell you but?. Fabe I wanted to add you might want to uninstall the driver then use driver sweeper to make sure all remnants of the previous driver are removerd before trying again

Everyone knows the site drivers don't work for the ATI Radeon HD 3850 Agp card. Nor does the 'hot fix'....even the newest one that came out June 9th. My drivers got corrupted on my computer and I do not have access to my original install disc. Does anyone know a link to a working driver for this?? OR even upload to me the install files from an original disk?

I am renovating a home and forced to live in a small room with friends. All my drivers and computer gear is in a LARGE storage unit along with about 4 bedrooms of stuff, (me the wife and 3 kids.) Simply, by the time I got internet access, my computer takes a dump and my drivers got corrupted. I can't get to the box that has the original disk that came with this damn card. Every version I tried don't work and I even tried some 'hacked' drivers that don't see the 'supported card'.

So....on my time off at night when I am not cutting sheet rock and fixing this new home to work in, I wanna play Oblivion...Turok.....Cyrostasis....etc and at the moment they won't because I don't have the correct drivers.

ANY help please? Thank you friends!

Hi all, I have recently installed windows 8 64bits on my pc. I have an ATI RADEON HD 3850 AGP , a motherboard ASROCK AM2NF3-VSTA and an AMD Athlon X2 4400+. I can not make my VGA work... When I try to install the driver manually it gets me this error, and in the device manager the VGA it's shown with a exclamation:

I can't change the resolution it is set in 1024x768... I have already tried some of them, but all shows me that error. Another thing that I have seen is that when I install CCC it only is installed in my pc ATI Engine control center, not the catalyst control center and the VGA it's shown with a exclamation too. What drivers should I install? And how must I install them?
Can sombebody help me please to get it work?

A:Radeon 3850 with 6 pin?

OK, I had a look through quite a few of the HP docs, but it doesnt seem to give specifications of the power supply. Please check the total wattage (W, eg. 450W) and also how many amps on the 12v, 5v and 3.3v rails.; It will most likely show the rail amps as a table so...

12V 5V 3.3V
28A 16A 42A

This is just a random example, so please provide us with this information. Also please detail as much info as possible for the following by using the PSU calculator here.

Fill in this, and see how many watts your system is currently using, and then by adding how many watts the 3850 uses, we can determine if it is necessary to upgrade PSU as well. I think you probably will have to, so keep this in mind.

Hey there everyone on TechSpot...

Recently I upgraded from a Geforce 6800 GS to an ATI Radeon HD3850 (both AGP)
After having carefully followed all the steps required to install a new graphics card
(i.e. deleting of old drivers, installing the new ones etc.) I still get an error. In particular this one: STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER

I even contacted the manufacturer of the card (Sapphire) but they weren't of much help, giving me a constant list to do things that I had already done.

I uploaded the latest 2 minidumps that were created from the crashes to (possibly) help solve the issue. (edit) I also uploaded my dxdiag, in case my other system specs are gonna be requested.

Hope you guys can help me,

Okay, I asked this question at another tech cite:

Motherboard 939 with Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 2 gigs of RAM, XP PRO sp/2, SATA HD 7200.

I want to upgrade from my old X800GTO 256 DDR3 to either a 3850 in 256 or 512.

Question: Will my dual core bottleneck either version?


The answer I received was:

I think the 3850 will bottleneck the 3800+ on the latest games that are the most demanding. The 3800+ X2 is ok for desktop stuff. Chatting email and so forth. It's also ok for games that have been around for a while.


To which I ask my TechSpot family, "What is your understanding?" Surely an Athlon 64 X2 3800+ can do a little more than "desktop stuff." No, its not the latest or greatest but few of anything software takes advantage of dual core as it is, including, with a few exceptions, games.

A video card purchase will be my last upgrade to my 939 system for a long while until I am forced to upgrade to another OS and by that time I'll have moved on.

So I'd like to get your thoughts on my inquiry and any other recommendations for a video card.


A:Will I Be Bottlenecking a Radeon 3850?

Let's be clear on what IS the bottleneck and when.
if you install the readon 3850 with 512M:
For most NEW games...your bottleneck will be the AMD 3800, then the amount and speed of RAM and then your HDD.

I'm assuming the 3850 is the equivalent of the nvidia 8800 series?

Hello everyone. :wave:

I'm new here and I need some help with my computer. I hope to get some help if that's possible.

I upgraded my PC few months ago. So my current configuration is:

Gigabyte GA-MA770-US3 v2.0

Samsung SyncMaster P2250
Power Supply 600 W

Its a custom made PC, I bought everything on my own hand. I thought everything should work fine. And everything did work fine. But problems started while playing games.

When playing THPS: American Wasteland for example, game runs perfectly. But at some point (its usually randomly), whole pc crashes. I get black screen and pc is still running. I cant reset it on reset button like usually. I have to hold power button few seconds until it shuts down. And then when I turn it on again everything works fine.

Any idea what could cause this kind of problem?

I was advised by many to get this card for my system, which I did. Even with the quick fix......(the newer one I got from teh Saphire site,) I have still have had a nightmare with this card. Ati doesn't seem to support this card even when you get the listed driver, and my biggest hurt is it won't run Fallout 3 OR even Turok. There seems some weird mystery reason why the game freezes or stops and restarts windows or something else. I used to run these games on my old card....they were just at lowest setting and slow.

Any advice or help or something I should install that mind fix this?

Hey there,

I'm trying to squeeze just a tiny bit more life out of my aging PC (which I use almost exclusively for gaming). Just added another Gig of RAM, to make it 2Gb.

Now I'm looking at video cards - problem is, my motherboard has no PCI-E slot, AGP only (it's an Asus 939 - still perky except for the lack of PCI-E).

I know AGP is on the way out the door - but can't afford to upgrade video card PLUS mobo at this point - hoping someone can share their thoughts on dropping around $130 on a Radeon HD 3850 (512Mb) (the best AGP card I can afford).

Will I see a huge improvement over my GeForce 7600 GS (256Mb)?

Will I be able to play Crysis (it's gathering dust on my shelf - unplayable even at 800x600 on my current rig), even if it's at low settings? STALKER: Clear Sky with Dynamic Lighting enabled?

Just how much will this extend the gaming life of my PC?

I know I should just wait until I can afford card + mobo upgrade, but there are some great games coming out that I want to be able to play all-shiny-like (Dead Space, Far Cry2, FALLOUT 3!) right now.

Any thoughts, opinions, input welcome.

Other specs:

AMD 3500+
2Gb DDR400

A:geforce 7600GS => radeon HD 3850, good idea?

It would be quite a huge improvement, yet, the coming games will prove problematic with that card, too... 2 GB of slow RAM and a 3500+ don't make things any better.

For the last 3 years i have worked with Windows XP , 2x Sapphire Radeon HD 3850 512 MB videocards and 3 monitors connected (2x 22inch and 1x 19inch).

This worked without a single problem.

Since i got a terrible virus i was forced to upgrade to Windows 7.

And from this moment the problems started.

Only 1 22 inch monitor displays the correct resolution 1680x1050. The other 22inch is set to a lower resolution and when i manually try to set it higher it wont go to the desired resolution.

In the mean time i have removed the 3rd monitor. So currently i am working with the 2x 22inch.

I have tried to install every single driver available but nothing works.

The funny thing is that when i installed windows 7 that the monitors did work for about 3days. Suddenly the monitor resolution changed and i couldnt got it back.

1 time when trying installing older drivers the monitors went back to the good resolution but with in a day it failed again. Now after 2 weeks of trying and installing /deleting drivers i have no idea what to do anymore.

My PC details:

Windows 7 Home premium 64bit
Quad Core Q6600 2.40 GHz
4GB RAM memory

I installed windows 7 on my Dell studio 1535 yesterday, however I can't get the proper resolution for my samsung 23" monitor.

On Vista I had my 23 inch monitor hooked up to my laptop via DVI port and in Catalyst I'd turn off the main laptop screen, only using the 23' samsung for main. Now that I've installed windows 7 I can't run the 1920x1280 (the largest) resolution on my big screen, the maximum for it is 1280x768... I'm suspecting the driver isn't working well with Windows 7, and I've already downloaded 10.3 ATI drivers and they don't solve the problem either.

Basically I want to run the big resolution 1920x1280 on my screen. Please help me, it's very frustrating my video card is ATI Radeon 3400 HD.

Thank you in advance guys...

A:ATI Radeon 3400 Doesn't Work Well With Windows 7

Just a few tips, probably not going to fix your problems:

You have make the lcd monitor your one and only monitor to properly set your resolution. Also, make sure you're setting the resolution through the catalyst control panel and not the windows settings.

Make sure you downloaded the proper drivers. (Either 32 or 64 bit, PCIe or AGP, etc)

You can force your computer to display all modes, not just the compatible ones via

Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Display > Adjust Screen Resolution > Advanced Settings > Monitor Tab > Uncheck Hide Modes that this monitor cannot display

Note: The process above could possibly harm your monitor.

The monitors have the same 3 ports, so I thought they would work, but it seems like the system will only recognize any 2 of the 3 monitors. I have been told that I either need display ports or active dongle adapters, which I don't understand. Is that true?

True, and you probably need both. One of the three must be on a Display Port connection either to a Display Port monitor (expensive) or a DVI monitor using the adapter. ATI's newer video cards labeled "Eyefinity" are what you're after.

A (somewhat) cheaper solution is to drop a second video card in there and run the third monitor off of that. If the third monitor is only for something requiring a 2D picture (as in, not a 3D-intensive game, etc) a very cheap second video card will do.

i have have an Inspiron 15, 7000 series, bought about 9 months ago. On the laptop there are 2 video card: one integrated video card (intel HD graphics 5500) and one dedicated video card (AMD Radeon R M270). The problem is simple: the dedicated video card doesn't work; actually i can't even understand if it activates or not. I'm gonna explain better.
When i bought the laptop, i didn't noticed anything wrong with that, probably because the laptop was very fast, much faster then my old one. About one month ago, i had to use some programs for graphics, 3d modeling and rendering, and i noticed that there was something wrong qith the video card. Then i tried to deativate the integrated intel graphic to verify if the dedicated video card properly works. As i deativate the intel graphic card, the pc started using another video card (don't remember the ecactly the name, but looked like if it was a basic video card intergrated in the laptop - for sure a very ''poor'' video card). But the main problem was that the dedicated video card did't start working.
Then, i deativate the integrated radeon video card and reactivate the integrated intel video card: surprisingly i noticed that some programms, games or 3d modelling programms started working faster and more fluently.

However, when I search their parts and upgrades for my computer, all the graphics cards they recommend are 128MB, 256MB, even 512MB cards!! Now if my system won't handle those cards, then why do they recommend them as upgrades? When I asked that to the dell chat rep, he said I'd have to contact Dell Solution Station, which of course I'd then have to pay them to use!! Man, I'm really about to get fed up with Dell!!

I'm currently running Windows Vista 64-Bit. Recently the windows update manager informed me of a bunch of updates that I needed to do. I noticed a graphics card update called 3200 or something and remembered having problems with a few games. So I went to the task of installing the update, but now apparently my Catalyst Control Centre doesn't support my driver version. I'm puzzled whether the update was for the drivers, or the control centre. However, the problems in my games have been fixed, I notice that Crysis can barely run on high (I should be able to run on Ultra High see my specs).

Today I tried to update the control centre and drivers together using an installer from ATI but it just crashes when i say install or uninstall, windows told me of a hotfix, which I downloaded, but it doesn't seem to be helping.

Any suggestions on driver, control centre, or my Crysis problems? Thanks.

Two problems with your set up,

1. The chipset on your motherboard. It is the NF3 and Nvidia hasn't supported that since the last XP update from November 2005 (and never released a Vista driver for it). As a result of that I'm not sure what is being used for the AGP/GART driver, which is required for your AGP card to work properly. Have a look around here,

View forum - nForce Drivers &bull;

been a while, but pretty sure that I saw a re-mix of drivers for that chipset that worked with Vista; might get lucky and find something that will work with 7.

2. Your AGP card. Without the AGP driver mentioned above, you're going to have problems. Also ATI never officially supported that card (or any of the HD2xxx or 3xxx series in AGP), but they do put out the AGP hotfix driver for it,

Catalyst AGP Hotfix - Radeon HD 3000 and Radeon HD 2000 Series AGP products

Save that link as it will be the same every month when they release the hotfix, they'll just update the download links.

I have a Sapphire Radeon HD3850 AGP card in my system but windows will not install the driver from the latest release of the ATI Catalyst driver install. Instead it defaults to the Standard VGA

From what i have read on these forums i may need to change some information the CH87739.inf file for the driver.

The device is of my product is 9515. (see attatched pic.)

I see a memeber called torrentg had posted a modified .inf file but the download limit has been reached. Is there any chance of posting again? Or perhaps positing its contents into the replay.

All help will be much appreciated.

PS. Im running windows 7 64-Bit

and fill out your system specs too.

you need to manually install the drivers. i have the same card. I don't use the ccc either. AND i might plan on going back to windopws xp since for me windows 7 is slowing corrupting itself, meaning some stuff i used to do fine is now tweaked and not working.

I recently bought a C.D. and wanted to upload it to iTunes and put it on my iPod, but it would not load. I thought, "Oh, it must have a security thing." So I tried it in a C.D. player. It worked. I tried once more with the computer, and it failed. The driver shows up. But there is no C.D. I even tried another C.D. to see if it was just the one I had bought, but it wasn't. Any ideas?

A:My CD Driver doesn't want to work.

Hi lol_alex_lol30 and welcome to TSF

I can help you with some basics, but you will need to check further to get all the data you need, as I don't upload to iTunes.

I'm assuming you bought an audio CD. I'm also assuming that iTunes would like to see MP3 audio files....You will need to find that out. This though, is true. When you burn an audio CD from music files, those files are most likely in the form of WAV on your harddrive. They are burned onto the CD with a .cda extension and are named track 1, track 2, etc. The song names are not shown on the CD if you view it with Windows Explorer.

Extracting songs from an audio CD to harddrive is called ripping the song. Songs end up on your harddrive in the form of "songname.wav". songname will be Track1, Track2, etc. and you will have to rename each to have the actual song title associated with the song. WAV files are quite large and about 24 songs is the maxium that you can burn onto an audio CD.

Mpeg level 3 (MP3) is a compression specification that can be used to make much smaller audio files. A 20,000,000 (20 meg) WAV file will compress into a MP3 file that is about 2 meg or less. A file that is 10 to 11 times smaller than the WAV file. I'm sure you can appreciate the fact that small files upload much faster than very large ones. Also you can put about 240 mp3 files on a CD, but only about 24 wav files. You could also appreciate that your ear can't tell the difference between the sound of... Read more

Hi rx123yz. Your issue sounds like that Windows have installed its own drivers over new ones that you installed. Remove all the old drivers and use Driver Sweeper. This little software removes all the bits of the old drivers. Below is the link to download the S/W. Before uninstalling the old drivers, download the latest drivers for your card from Sevenforums or from Nvidia site and install them after uninstalling and sweeping off the old drivers with driver sweeper.

In Windows 7, I am trying to figure out if I have any faulty drivers. I have been having BSODs for a while, and I've removed RAM etc. So the next step was to test drivers.

But I can't run Driver Verifier. No matter which drivers I select, the Driver Verifier causes a blue screen as the windows 7 logo starts to come together. I have to clear the settings in Safe mode to get it back.

Is there any way to fix this, or any other way to check my drivers?

(My most recent BSODs have said caused by dxgmms1.sys and tcpip.sys -- lots of IRQL_not_less_or_equal and system_thread_exception_not_handled.)

A:Driver Verifier Doesn't Work...

The purpose of Driver Verifier is to cause a Blue Screen of Death.
Analysis of the memory dump files will then (if it's worked) let the analyst know what driver caused it.

You'll know this because there will be a Driver Verifier Enabled memory dump.

FWIW - I had a system at work today that would spit out the IRQL error messages, but not the Driver Verifier Enabled error messages. I finally enabled all settings in Driver Verifier and then rebooted. An hour and a half later the system was still booting with the Windows 7 splash screen.

The point here is that the settings that you use in Driver Verifier are critical - and are determined by the type of BSOD events you are getting (for example, if you have BAD_POOL_CALLER errors, then you want to enable the POOL checking options in Driver Verifier).

Please zip up the contents of the C:\Windows\Minidump directory and upload/attach the .zip file to your next post.

I?ve got some problem with my W-LAN device. Recently I?ve got a strange feeling about it because some things didn?t work correctly, so I decided to reinstall the driver. It didn?t work directly (I don?t know why), so I tried to uninstall it first, to install it again. Now I got this message:

This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

An update for the latest driver was useless because I already got the latest one. I tried both installing it from the device manager several times, which failed everytime with this message to come, and by the driver setup (there is a folder available on my computer with all drivers installed on it), which seemed not to have any effect, although it said "Installation complete". Has anyone a solution for me?
I?m going to reinstall my Windows soon, but it?ll take some weeks to that. But until that, I need my W-LAN to work again!

Hey guys,

Yesterday I formatted and reinstalled windows Vista on my new Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop. I've gone through the whole driver CD, installed everything there, but wireless still doesn't work! It doesn't find any networks. I realize that the drivers CD just has the default 1720 drivers, so some things might be different (for example, the default video card is 8400, but mine has an 8600, and the driver for that isn't on the CD). Perhaps I require a different wireless driver?

If that is the case, how do I know which one I have and where to get the propoer driver for it?

Any help is appreciated!

Thank you.

Hi there!
I just got my new Asus Vivobook s400ca running Win8.1, a few weeks ago.
It really runs great, although I managed to find one problem. Since this is a laptop without a detachable screen,
I didn't really find any good reason for having the touch keyboard toolbar () in my task bar, since I was pretty sure I'd never need it. So I disabled the keyboard, which worked out fine but the toolbar was still there.

I then went on to try to remove it by using one of EightForum's .reg files for that purpose.

This did, as described, remove the toolbar, but apparantly it stopped the mouse pad driver as well, even though the mouse pad itself basically works. (no gestures or scrolling though.)

As you can see here, There's no driver running.

And in the ASUS hub, it's also impossible to turn it on. It just keeps saying it's off.

So I decided to use another .reg file that I found with the initial one, that should basically just rollback the effect that the other one had, but to no avail.

It just made the toolbar come back.
So I don't really know where to go from here. Any suggestions?
Also, if there is anyone who knows what to do about that toolbar, please do tell! [:

Thanks in advance! [:

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?

The Stylus Pro 7600 is now a really old printer, the last supported driver was for XP but it worked in Windows 7 and I believe to some extent in 8 although I never did try it.

It s a really good reliable large format printer though and very affordable in parts, ink and the second-hand purchase price.

However alas Windows 10 doesn't like it, I did the upgrade to 10 (and then the downgrade) from windows 7 but it will not see the driver it sees the device but calls it a USB high speed device or something like that and compatibility mode didn't seem to help.

So unless there is a clever work around and I'd love that to happen I'm stuck on Windows 7 for the duration.

Suggestions welcome.

So now here I am with 64 bit vista installed again. I downloaded a couple drivers that it could be from lenovo website. It still didn't work.

Before I started this whole project I went to the microsoft upgrade site to check compatability. While running XP, the site said that I would have to download the wireless lan driver and install it after i installed vista. It also said the fingerprint reader would need to be manually installed but I don't care about that.

This is another case of factory bloatware interfering - in this case a useless factory utility overriding Win7's superior built-in version.

Googling the Quiet Office feature of Asus there are multiple reported problems. Best to default to the Win7 built-in Power Options in Control Panel. Set up a Balanced Plan unless you're a gamer then use High Performance.

Here are other tips for cleaning up factory bloatware

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either
- and probably other stuff that I haven't took note of yet...

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing changed.
- disk clean up, nothing changed
- registry clean, nothing changed
- CURRENTLY defragging my C drive, hope something changes..

Anyone know what the heck's going on!?
Anyone got any suggestions on what to do next?
Anything helps and would be greatly appreciated!

A:programs not loading right, computer doesn't shut down right, sys recov doesn't work

anyway, just stopped by to say that when shutting down, it takes forever to get to the "Saving your settings..." screen, and that's where I decided that it stops and nothing else after that.
Defragged my C drive, still no results besides the computer feeling a bit smoother-running o_o

I have a 4y old Sony VAIO (VGN-NS11J) that stopped working today morning after making a whirring noise

Repeated attempts to restart failed and after many attempts, I managed to get to the Startup Repair mode - after a long time, startup repair says it failed to automatically repair the problem

I managed to run system restore but after a while I got the following message: "System restore failed due to an unspecified error. The disk strucgture is corrupted and unreadable (0X80070571)

My laptop did not come with a Windows Vista CD/Recovery disk

My first priority is to recover a few files in the laptop - if I am able to do this, then I dont mind junking the laptop

Since this is an old laptop, I would prefer not to use an expensive professional to recover the data

Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated!

For the last month or so, every time I log off my account, the keyboard does not register at the Windows Log In screen. This makes it so I have to restart the computer and then it works fine.
There are three accounts on the computer, the casing has been half removed for the last 3 months, a DVD burner and driver recently installed 3 months ago and I am using a wireless off brand USB keyboard and mouse.
OS: Windows Xp Home Edition 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
As for the second part, the computer requires several restarts to boot up, sometimes up to twenty minutes of turning on and off to boot up. Only started doing this a week ago.

A:My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.

Have a friend with a relatively new Lenovo laptop using Windows XP SP3. Overnight he can't access the Internet via browsers, email or AIM. His desktop connected to the same router is working fine.

He can access the router by IP address using either IE7 or FireFox 3.5. Anything that needs a DNS server doesn't work. This does say though that he has a working connection to the router.

He's run MalWareBytes and his own McAffee software looking for bad stuff but has found nothing.

Running "ipconfig /all" from the command prompt gives exactly the same results for the laptop as his working desktop. The DNS servers are there. He can ping the DNS servers using their IP addresses. He is being assigned a proper local network address so DHCP is working on the router.

Any thoughts on where to look next to discover why the Internet applications don't seem to be able to find the DNS servers?

A:Can't Access Websites, Email doesn't work and no AIM doesn

FWIW, my friend took his laptop to a PC shop. Their diagnosis was malware. I don't know the identity of the malware. Anyway, the shop saved his data then formatted and reloaded XP SP3.

Hi... xp stopped responding and I decided to power off.

Was never able to restart after that. Normal boot shows the windows initial screen, but eventually just restarts, safe mode does the same thing whether it's with network, command line or plain safe mode. Last known good configuration does the same.

Needed to use a file so decided to remove the HD and re-install to another PC. I did have access to the file in question but now I'd like to fix the problem.

The other system uses AVG. I started a scan and it detected Cekar.d (A0003977.exe, wdfmgr.exe and initially ntldr.exe), Dropper.Inor (ntdetect.hta, A0003979.hta), PSW.Generic5.ABVW (ctfmona.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.AAFI (ctfmonb.exe), PSW.Generic5.AFYK (ctfmond.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.ZWT (LotusHlp.exe) and some others but for whatever reason the scan stopped. I restarted it and now the AV still finds most of the threats it was seeing before but not Cekar.d. in the ntldr.exe file.

The system that had the problem was running Win XP Home SP1. Unfortunately, I can't find the manufacturer's recovery CD.

HD is still in the other PC. How should I attack the problem?

A:XP doesn't reboot, safemode doesn't work

Update... Three passes of AVG and all threats were put in vault. Tried to re-install the HD to the initial system but no change... System says it didn't start correctly, that a new software of hardware could be responsible, the suggests to try las known good config, none of the options work, they all perform some tasks then windows reboots and ends up in the same screen.

I'm not quite sure if this belongs in the games or hardware forums(Kinda game related), so I'm just giving it a shot here. My computer is very stable unless I decide to play World of Warcraft. When that happens, it runs about 1-20 minutes at a time before the computer screen goes black and A) Stays that way with a sharp buzzing sound in the speakers, or B) Restarts on its own. I have the case's siding off because I thought it was a heating issue (it may still be), but the computer restarts only when I run WoW. I don't see how the video card would have ample cooling without having a fan on it, and I'm not sure if I can just throw one on it and be good to go.

I cannot get Windows Media Encoder 9 to work at all at home, but I have no problems with it at work, so I know I'm not trying to do something with it that it can't handle.

At home, every time I try to convert either an AVI or a VOB to WMV, either using the wizard or the custom settings, it lets me get through it all and then, when it starts trying to encode, it throws up the message:
"Windows Media Encoder has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. ..."

It never gives me any more information than this, just crashes and closes. I've tried repairing it through the control panel, as well as completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but it hasn't helped.

At home I'm running Windows XP Media Center. At work, where I've never had it crash, I'm running Windows XP Professional. Is there something in Media Center that causes it to crash? Is there any patch I can download or thing I can do to get it to work on my home computer?

Thanks for your help.

I'm currently having the same problem . I open the .vob file set the output folder , settings etc etc . just as it was about to start converting , WME just stops and crashes . I use windows xp home edition so if your company's xp professional can make it work im thinking it is something in the professional edition which allows it to work not something in our edition that doesnt allow it to work. Are there any alternatives for encoding a video? i dont have much cash right now so i was hoping i might find some freeware alternatives . thanks

I'm having difficulty figuring out this persistent malware. I think it's likely that there are multiple issues.

I'm running Windows Vista.

The malware started off with "google redirect" symptoms, and disabling my Symantec software

Shortly following, I could no longer access the web. However, the malware itself would create an internet explorer popup every 5-10 minutes (not my default browser) that would go to "search sites" (none that I recognized....) and search for lewd topics. Running the taskmanager would show multiple instances of iexplore.exe running on my machine (one for each popup). The popups would have to be eliminated one by one using the task manager.

Trying to run a system restore, I discovered all restore points had been deleted.

I installed AVG antivirus and got it to run once which seemed to help the problem. However, upon restart, all issues were back and I could no longer run avg. Windows defender constantly pops up that a new trojan is attacking my machine.

At this point, I unplugged my internet connection and started using another machine. I had left my problematic computer alone for about a month.

Upon turning it on last night, each time I logged on, it gave me a warning that "Windows had encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute" and would restart. I tried running cmd (in that one minute) to intercept it, but the task manager would freeze if I tried to run it from there and explorer wo... Read more

Dear All
I'm using Dell Vostro 3350 now. After I upgrade Win 10 Pro, the Laptop Speaker doesn't work and can't give output any sound. But if I put my earphone, all of the sound include song work.
I use PC Doctor and scan the computer hardware but there is nothing found error on hardware and software. I also use windows update to scan all of the drivers, but it can't found any update drivers of this laptop. So what can I do next to fix the problem?
Thank you for member's attention

A:Laptop Speaker Doesn't Work But Using Earphone Work

Hello. Dell does not recommend installing Win10 on the Vostro 3350 model. Dell says, "If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected." To get the best performance from your laptop, revert it back to the previous operating system. You can google to find instructions for undoing Win10.
If you want to continue with Win10, then try to install the IDT Win8 audio driver using compatibility mode.
1. Click the link to go to the driver's page. Download and save the driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive. 2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win8.

So whenever a program uses InstallShield to install or uninstall a program, it boots up, and the bar fills up preparing to run the Wizard, and right when it fills, an error message pops up: "An error occurred while launching the setup. The specified module could not be found," and then it quits.

This occurs anytime I try to install or uninstall anything that uses InstallShield. I've tried everything at the InstallShield troubleshooting site, including deleting a file in the registry (the problem key was there but deleting it didn't solve the problem), making sure I had admin privilidges, and emptying out the Temp folder. I can't reinstall InstallShield because it (ironically) requires InstallShield to install.

The one problem that I can think of would be that I just got back from college. At college, I logged onto a network to use the computer. Could this have something to do with it? I've tried logging onto the computer itself as the Admin, but the problem still occurs. This whole thing really sucks because the comp is pretty much useless not being able to install or uninstall anything.

Thanks for any help.

A:InstallShield doesn't work, none of the usual fixes work

Depending on what version of InstallShield you have here is a site that shows some of it's program errors >

Have you tried this site >

InstallShield uses the Windows Installer Service. It could be that Windows Installer Service has somehow become corrupted.
Check this site out >

As a last resort you might consider reinstalling your Windows Operating System on top of itself to repair and replace the corrupted or missing files associated with InstallShield and Windows Installer Service.

Just for your information, InstallShield is the oldest installer program company. However there is another that is completely free “Inno Setup” which you may have seen when installing some programs. Here’s their site >

I have an Acer Aspire E1-572G (Windows 8.1 64-bit OS) with Intel HD Graphics 4400 and AMD Radeon HD 8670M. When i run games however, my laptop uses Intel card instead of my AMD card.

Things i've tried:
Setting application to High Performance in Switchable GraphicsReinstalling AMD/Intel Drivers from both AMD/Intel sites and Acer sites (Used a proper uninstaller to remove all files)Disabling my Intel Graphic Card results in my laptop using Microsoft Basic Rendering DriverUninstalling my Intel Graphic Card also results in using Microsoft Basic Rendering DriverUsing CPU-Z shows AMD Radeon HD 8670M but most information are missing (unknown or 0) unlike Intel Graphics which displays everything. Upon clicking sensor, all my temperatures are set to 0 (which means it's not in use)Using dxdiag shows my Intel Graphics as default driver, not AMD.

I've tried everything i could possibly do so i'm seeking help from experts here. I've seen articles which stated that Windows 8.1 are buggy with Switchable Graphics and may cause problems like these. Is that true?

A:Switchable graphics doesn't use my AMD Radeon HD 8670M

For dual mismatched GPU's like Intel/AMD I recommend using the laptop manufacturers drivers, over doing two separate driver installs. The laptop manufacturers driver is custom tailored for your dual switchable graphics. Which driver are you using now? I haven't had any issues in Windows 8.1 as far as my switchable graphics goes. Mine are AMD/AMD though so I can use a driver right from AMD's web site. I get all kinds of ccc has stopped working messages in Windows 10 though.

I have had this problem through 2 motherboards. I have a brand new (ok, year old, but unused) ATI Radeon 8500 LE that I can not get to work to save my life. When I 1st got it and had problems with it I contacted ATI tech support and after following their suggestions with no success I sent it in for repair. They told me it tested just fine, but sent me a known good board as a replacement. Same problems. I figured it may be something about my system, so I put it away until I made an upgrade. I just replaced my motherboard with an MSI KM2M Combo-L (hey it was cheap) and tried the video card with the new m/b to see if it made a difference. No luck. Not a WinXP driver problem because it won't even allow me to view my bios settings for more than a minute before the screen totally corrupts. Just for reference I am using an Athlon XP 1700. Any ideas?

A:ATI Radeon 8500 LE won't work

Just poking here, but do you have a modem installed on that mobo? If so, try removing the video card, drivers and all, then remove the modem and any drivers that are installed, and then pull the plug, physically remove both of the cards, replacing ONLY the video card for now. If all boots up ok try loading the drivers for the vid card then. If that goes ok then try the modem. There may be another issue involved, but with the problems modems can cause, I would take a shot and at least eliminate it as a resource conflict of some kind.

Good Luck!

Urm im not sure how to find out so i thought you guys might be able to help :s

my pc:

A:Will Radeon HD 5850 work on my pc?

is it that one? if so cannot find psu spec anywhere have look at your docs or on psu it will say for example 600w

taken from google
Here are the official power requirements for the brand new ATI Radeon HD 5850 and HD5870 video cards.

ATI Radeon&#8482; HD5850 System Requirements

PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard
&#8226; 500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX&#8482; technology in &#8226; dual mode)

ATI Radeon&#8482; HD5870 System Requirements

&#8226; PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard
&#8226; 500 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors recommended (600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX&#8482; technology in &#8226; dual mode)

NOTE - These are the power supply recommendations for an entire pc system. I can't wait to see techncial reviews with power consumption results. I knew the cards were supposed to be more energy efficient than current generation cards.

so if you have a 600w then it will run but bigger is better, note well you need 2 connectors
