I am not doing anything I dont normally do on the computer. It may be its too old and time for a new computer. Saw one online I like but I am $200 short in credit. I have the cash but nearest computer store is 100 miles away.

Flash crashes, can hear computer making noise like its overheating or something. Used to be able to restart and it would slow down but now its 100% all the time.

Is there any low cost solution to this or do I have to get a new computer?

It has been slowly breaking down over time. Some programs no longer function and no browsers function without errors. Chrome doesnt display full page some sites. Firefox I cant open a new window without tabbing. Internet explorer I cant use at all. They are fully updated as is java flash and adobe. Registry is clean and defragment set to run automatically every 2 weeks. Cache also set to auto clean.

Hello, one day I was changing and my cat sat on top of my laptop, by that I mean on top of the keyboard. It sat there for about 2 minutes and since then the fans wont stop running. They run at 100% all the time, even when Im idle. They sound like theyre reving up and then rev up again, kind of like a car changing gears would. Please help, I want to stop this before anything bad happens.

A:Cat sat on laptop, now fans wont stop running

I have a three month old Dell Inspirion 1520 laptop with Microsoft Vista. It was acting really wierd and it was recommended that I do a system restore. I started the system restore last night, and now, 14+ hours later it keeps saying "Please wait while your windows files and setting are being restored. System restore is restoring the registry." If I try to reboot, I get the same message coming up each time. Is there any way to stop this or restart the system restore??
 

A:System Restore wont stop running

Since it is still under warranty I would contact Dell. No way would I wait around. I had a similar incident and it was my hard drive which they replaced. I would contact them and have them check it out.

When i get on the internet for a little while and close it down I notice that my system slows down. When I check my task manager I see that 'iexplore.exe' is still using 99% of my cpu power. This is an easy fix since I just stop the process in the Task manager. But I would like to find out what is causing this and fix. Any ideas?

How to stop "Runtime Broker" from running constantly in the background.
Running win 10 Home 32 bit upgraded from Win 7 Home Premium

A:Stop "Runtime Broker" from running constantly in the background

Someone mentioned that they solved this problem by going to Settings, System Display, Notifications & actions. Turn OFF "Show me tips about windows".

If that doesn't work, you can edit the Registry to disable "Runtime Broker", but this will also prevent Microsoft Store Apps from running.

Runtime Broker is a service called Time Broker, which can be disabled through editing the registry.

Right-click on the Start Menu Icon. Go to RUN and type regedit.exe and select OK.

Find the following entry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] "Start"=dword:00000003

Change the 3 to a 4.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] "Start"=dword:00000004

4 is Disabled, 3 is Manual and 2 is Automatic startup.

Before editing, the original value was 3. Set to 4 to disable. Just change the 3 to a 4 through the MODIFY menu selection, exit regedit and reboot your system.

Hey guys, I am running Vista on an AMD Phenom X4 9150e with 4gb ram. My hard drive is constantly running and chugging away pretty good too, reading rather than writing i believe. My cpu and memory usage are quite high and my system is running relatively slow for doing simple things like opening a browser. I have attached a screenshot of the system resource monitor with basically nothing running but hijack this and a browser. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

MY SYSTEM: I use Windows 7 in a Dell Inspiron 660 computer with 4 GB of memory and an Intel i3 3.40 GHz CPU. (More details at Windows 7 Help Forums - View Profile: zarfs)

I have two hard drives.

The first hard drive contains the C: and E: volumes. The C: volume contains the Windows operating system. The E: volume contains my data files.

The second hard drive is G: and contains more data files.

THE PROBLEM: While in Windows, my hard drive indicator light flashes constantly and rhythmically, and I can hear one of the drives constantly reading or writing.

WHAT I'VE TRIED: I turned off Windows Indexing Service and disabled scheduled scans by Norton Internet Security, but that apparently had no effect.

I started Windows Resources Manager and have attached here some screen shots from it. I have also attached a list of what Windows Services are activated.

What's causing this annoyance, and what can I do to eliminate it?

I have used Windows 98 for several years, but over the last several months, I have noticed that my computer is reading and writing information to my harddrive almost constantly, during the day, in the middle of the night, whatever. It occurs even when I am not on the Internet and no programs are open other than what opens automatically when you boot up. Is there any way to tell what program might be on my computer that is causing this when the harddrive starts spinning on its own? When I type cntl/alt/delete the harddrive stops spinning, but when I cancel out, it starts right up again. Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:How to stop constantly spinning hardrive

First: do you have a permanent internet connection(DSL, cable, etc) if so, for sure it's a troyan or virus of those that send email... it doesn't reflect as a task 'cause they usually install as services... Get the most recent update for your antivirus, and also see the current active connectios to internet: for this you can use TCPView and you can get it here. Also get an antitroyan/spyware utility (like AdAware). Good luck

It "restricted this website from running scripts or Activex controls from running"

No matter what I do I keep getting them. I allowed IE to automatically run signed ActiveX, and now I get the warning plus another wanting to fix my settings.

Seriously, MS signed the ActiveX stuff, but then says it's bad to allow them... Good Job MS.

Sites like twitch and Crackbook constantly pop this up and it's right annoying.

Anyone got help/hints to stop this, even putting them in the trusted zone doesn't work. And IE10 works fine.

This is an issue that has been going on for quite a long time and I cannot figure out what is causing it or how to fix it.

Frequently (sometimes more than once a day!) my computer will just stop working--the screen freezes, the mouse and keyboard stop working (CTRL+ALT+Delete does not work)--and I have to manually power down and restart. I put it to sleep whenever I am not using it and also frequently I will wake it up to find the message "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown". It happened off and on a couple of years ago and then stopped for awhile. Lately it happens all the time.

What causes this and what do I need to fix/change to prevent it from happening?

Not sure what information you need. It's a Gateway GT5676 running Windows Vista. I have Avast free edition in use, Backblaze keeps my files backed up and DriverMax checks for updates (I have updated some of my drivers thinking that would help, but the free version only lets me do two a day. It hasn't helped yet anyway).

When I try to view a video from U Tube or from a friend the video starts and then, within seconds, it stops. I click on the wedge or circle in the center of the screen..often clicking all over the screen... and maybe it starts up again...for a few seconds ...and this process repeats over and over. I can rarely watch a video uninterrupted. Is this a problem with Adobe Flash, as an acquaintance told me? When an update for Adobe Flash was offered I downloaded it to see if that would stop the problem, but it hasn't.

How can I get videos to play without constant interruption?

Thanks in advance.

I am on a fully updated Windows 8.1 desktop.

I have a lot of HDDs. I have 2 hardware 4Tb RAID mirrors that work beautifully, not a hiccup. I also have a 4Tb software RAID mirror that spends almost ALL the time re-sychronising.

I usually switch my desktop on in the morning for a couple of hours then switch off. In the evening I switch on for 4 or 5 hours then switch off.

A usual cycle, switch on in the morning, the software RAID mirror starts re-synchronising. The process takes a LONG time. So I usually switch off while the re-sync is running. Switch on latter and the re-sync continues. After a couple of days the re-sync completes and for a couple of hours Disk Manager shows the mirror as "Healthy". The next day I switch on and the mirror starts re-syncing AGAIN. VERY very occasionally I switch on and the re-sync doesn't start and the mirror stays "Healthy" but, sure enough, the next time I switch on the re-sync starts again

Sometimes, on a weekend, I will switch on and leave the desktop running for a couple of days and the re-sync starts and completes and remains "Healthy" for many hours. Then I switch off on Monday morning. Same evening the re-sync starts again.

It has been like this for months

When I say "switch off" I mean "Shutdown" and switch off the surge protected powerboard. I've tried leaving the powerboard switched on to no effect.

I add, I don't do ANYTHING to the system when this... Read more

This is driving me nuts. Every time the dvd drive gets highlighted in my file manager tree, it pops open if there's no cd/dvd in there. Then everything freezes for 10 seconds so the computer can open the drive. Then I have to close it by hand, and everything freezes again for 10 seconds.

How can I make this stop? It only happens with my 3rd-party file manager called Xplorer2, which is otherwise great. It does NOT happen in Windows Explorer. The developer of Xplorer2 (it's just one person) insists the program can't be opening the drive.

Is there somewhere in Windows where I can force this to stop?
 

A:Solved: Stop my dvd drive from constantly auto-ejecting!

Turns out it *is* the fault of Xplorer2. If anyone sees this - avoid this 3rd-party file manager. Do not buy it. The developer himself - it's all just one person - told me flat-out *Xplorer2 is not doing this*, and then later recanted, in a number of hostile and aggressive posts in his own help forum. (You can read the thread if you're curious).

The issue was cleared up by other people in the forum, but the bug still remains.The file manager opens the disc drive when you don't want it to.

So I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro on my laptop and everytime a program hangs for a second, a "this X program is not responding" message appears and it's getting quite irritating really. I understand that programs might hang here and there because I'm on a low resource laptop but everytime this happens, Windows think the program completely crashed and the dialog appears everytime.

I think the key here is that you're on a "low resource laptop". I checked to see what your system specs are and all I see is that your computer is a laptop and you have Windows 8.1 Pro.

We need more information than that before we can help you:

Brand Name of Laptop
CPU type and speed.
How many GBs RAM?
How many GBs HDD space?
Video card or integrated?
GPU type and speed.

My first suspicion is that you have too much operating system for your "low resource" computer.

I wish I could offer more help, but I don't know enough about your system yet.

Hello,Pasting in contextual information from another topic ~ OBHere is a little history.March 30th A Windows problem first became evident as the CPU spiked to 100% and on reboot, Windows would not boot up stating it could be a hardware or software problem. At that time I thought it was the motherboard and had it swapped out because the error I had was different but the symtoms were the same prior to the system not booting.April 6th got the laptop back from HP and put in my HD to boot from. It worked for a day and then the CPU spiking issue was found, only this time with no failure to boot.Since that date I have tried to isolate the issue but to no avail. I have tried various restore dates and images, as well as manipulating the data on the master image (delete WoW before issue is active and reinstall it from scratch). None of it has worked.My latest attempt was to restore from my oldest image available [the other night]. It was left restoring and hasn't been tested yet. I am not sure if the "issue" will be visible on it.

A:CPU running at 100% constantly

Hello All,

I wanted to provide an update to this. I blew away the image last night hoping to restore from the factory settings and get it up and running. That worked for about an hour before the symptoms came back. That normally leads me to think that there is something on my home network that is passing a virus along before I can patch windows, but to add further confusion to this topic, the same situation has occurred on my work laptop. Both are HP NC6400. That is the only similarity. The work laptop is running XP and my home machine Vista. I had both machines rebuilt and the work one without ever stepping into my house exhibited the same issue on a fresh build. Is it possible that there is something resident in the BIOS of these machines, or that a Virus screwed up the CPU's?

Hi, i just got my Lenovo 501S-14IKB today. Everything is working fine, its super fast in comparison to my old laptop. Only problem is, that the fan seems to run all the time and is making noticable noise. the temperature of the cpu aer all in the range of 20 only the hd was at 34. so normally that are not temperatures where cooling is needed. If i let the notebook idle for 2 min it goes dead silent but starts again even if i just scroll down a homepage. And even if i start programms whicht take more resources, the fan does not get louder. Is there anyway to controll the fan? Help would be really appreciated, Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english

It seems I have had some lag of late, and I thought it was due to a loose connection in my CD-RW....but since I have completely removed the CD-RW, as it seemed to stop the lag for a day or so, i continue to get the same thing over again...CPU constantly running resulting in lag

It isnt spyware/or a virus, as I've check into that pretty thoroughly...

To me, it sounds like the CPU is constantly running and is somewhat loud during gaming...causing lag...
Anyone's help would be appreciated?

In Windows Task Manager, under the Performance Tab, my CPU is showing at 100% permanently. I've tried closing down some of the high runner processes but nothing makes any difference.

I've run several cleaners (RegCure, CCleaner etc) but again nothing makes any difference.
My PC is constantly freezing, hanging, sputtering and is becoming unusable.

I also noticed that when I manage to perform a normal shutdown, everything goes normally BUT my screen stays on, and the power button light remains on, but I can hear the drives and fan stopping. I then have to perform a manual powerdown by holding the on/off button for about 8-10 seconds.

My machine is a 3.06 GHz Pentium 4 Compaq Presario, 18 month old, O/S is Windows XP Home Edition, with SP 2.
Anyone out there have any ideas?
Thanks in advance

I have a Compaq Presario PC, windows XP W/SP2 installed. Model # SR1503WM. The CPU constantly runs whether computer is being used or not. I have checked the task manager and it shows CPU as 0% and compaq connections agent as the only application running. I have 1.24GB of RAM installed. I have Norton installed and AVG and have checked for spyware and computer seems to be clean of any. The unit seems to be cool as it is not hot when felt or air from it, and also is free of dust clogging vents and inside of unit. What could be the problem. It is 2 years old this month. The noise runs me crazy after a while, thanks!

A:S41 - Fan constantly running

That is usually caused by the vents that allow air to be drawn over the CPU heat sink being clogged with dust   Once the CPU gets hot, the system will slow down, and eventually just shut down to protect itself from a meltdown.     I would try using a vacuum cleaner hose and a can of computer cleaning air to blow/suck out the dust and see if that helps.     I that still fails, you may have to remove the base cover (see page 34 of the Lenovo S41/U41 Hardware Maintenance Manual) and clean the fan manually.     In rare case the heat sinks fail, or the thermal heatsink compund beween the CPU and the heat sink cracks and fails to transfer heat to the heat sink efficiently, mut most likely you will find the system is full of dust. Lenovo used to have a fan cleaning program in the Lenovo Energy Managment software, but I think it removed it for some reason.    It is supposed to run the fan backwards and forwards at high speed to try to clean the dust, but if it is really plugged, it probably will not work. Good luck. Lenovo S41/U41 S41-35 S41-70 S41-75 U41-70 Hardware Maintenance Manualhttps://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_s41-35_s41-70_s41-75_u41-70_hmm_201503.pdf

My CPU usage is always running at 50-55%, which it wasn't doing a week ago. When I check the "Processes" tab under Task Manager, there isn't any application/browser/programs that are taking up that cpu usage. I also ran a virus check with TrendMicro and it came up with nothing. I'd like to be able to know what is running in the background and stop it. It's making work related programs and browsing more slow.

I was referred to this forum because apparently I posted this in the wrong place. I apolgize for that. However regardless , I am so annoyed at this situation you have no idea. I ran adwcleaner, and all the tools I ran in the past from another problem I had with booting up. Still the pesky problem persists, once in a while I get someone talking on my computer with ads, once in a while... IE wants to know if you want to leave this page or stay on it,, Update Flash player.. and more. I run the cleaning tools and within a couple weeks there it is again.
 
I cannot find IE anywhere on my system so where in the world is it coming from.. When I upgraded from windows ?  Did it get burried someplace?
 
Anyhow I want it off my computer..
 
This is an Azus Laptop Model U52f
I am running windows 10 for a few months now
I use Chrome or Firefox as my browser
I have a pentium 4 
and my info is on my profile as to what motherboard etc.
 
Thank you

A:Running windows and cannot stop IE from running in background

Have you set a browser as the default browser? That's my first thought as to why you keep seeing IE mentioned. The
talking ads are a different issue and will likely require use of tools not allowed in this forum to find and remove.
 
Here is a link for info on setting Firefox as the default browser in Windows 10. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see this:
Make Firefox your default browser | Firefox Help

Use the Settings app in Windows 10 to change your default browser
Alternatively, you can open the Settings App from the Windows 10 Start menu to set Firefox as the default browser:
Go to the Windows Start menu and click the Settings icon.
Click System, then choose Default Apps on the left pane.
Scroll down and click the entry under Web browser.



Click on Firefox in the dialog that opens with a list of available browsers.



Firefox is now listed as your default browser. Close the Settings window to save your changes.
Note: To change your default to another browser, see the support documentation for that other browser.

Hi,

I am running Vista Home Basic. I have good computer knowledge and skills although certainly not an expert. I can't understand why I am constantly getting the low C: memory warning. I store all pictures and music, etc. on a separate hard drive, and I have carefully gone over my program files and uninstalled any that didn't seem worthwhile. I have a 70 gig hard drive which seems like lots and is more than any computer I've owned before. Sometimes it seems that if I delete files, etc. to clear up memory and the next time I come back to my computer I'm out of memory again. I often get the "could not complete back up due to insufficient memory" notice. I'm unclear on what is being backed up and if this is part of the problem.

I have 3 GB of RAM and the Virtual Memory is currently set at 3242 MB

Hi and welcome to vista forums

WE could use some info on your computer like how much memory you have, but I think you are running low on "virtual memory". Virtual memory or page file is set in the system control panel>advanced settings. Dependant on the amount of RAM you have it should be set for between 1 and 2 times the amount of ram. If you run out of RAM more and more things are stored in the page file untill it too is out of space. thats when y ou get the low memory warning.

If you like I can walk you thru the settings and where to change them, just tell us how much ram you have.

Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

hope this helps

I just received a new HP 22-b052 AIO yesterday and as soon as I started it up, I could hear the fan on the left side (or right side from the back) constantly running. The sound from far away is unnoticeable but when I'm in front of it, it is loud. Is this normal for HP AIO (All in One)? I called HP tech support and spent hours recovering and reinstalling BIOS, running hardware tests but to no avail.  Also, could I replace the fan? Is this PC customizable, would I be able to switch out the mobo and CPU (and of course fan)?

Long story of what's happened so far:

So about a week ago I was on firefox and using google search. I scrolled through the page and my firefox window closed. internet explorer opened for a brief second, it then closed itself, then a program called XP security 2011 downloaded itself and started running a virus scan. I just assumed it was a fake (I've had this sort of thing happen on other computers in the form of Spy Sheiff and something else years before). My internet was hijacked and I couldn't open any page in any browser. So I turned the computer off, ran malwarebytes anti-malware in safemode and it found a few things. I deleted everything that came up and I turned the computer back on in normal mode and I ran into a few other problems.

While the internet now worked, whenever I tried to open (mostly) any other program, it would ask what program I wanted to open it with (the list of the default programs). After a while of searching, I came across a registry fix for it, downloaded it and it worked.

Some point after that though I just ran more scans in Malwarebytes, and whenever I boot the computer normally it runs super slow. I pin pointed this to services.exe using the task manager but from what I read it seems that it's a genuine file that has malware attached to it. It's hogging every bit of CPU that isn't being used by everything else. If I run the computer in safe mode it might run at 80-90% which is definitely better then 100, but it&... Read more

My fan has recently started running almost constantly and loud. I have gone into msconfig and gotten rid of everything that doesn't need to run. The computer will do this when stationary with fan area hanging off of table exposed. When I sleep it or shut it, the light on the exterior of the computer (that says hp) stays on and the fan runs on high. I don't believe there is dirt in there. Around the same time, I noticed number lock and the keypad on the side stopped working.

could part of this be that I have never replaced the battery?

What else could it be?

I have run every spyware program known to man (malwarebytes, superantispyware, etc)

Hi Bibbster,

Not a common problem no, if anything after fitting a SSD the fans should come on less as a SSD gives off no heat at all compared to a regular spinner.

Did any bios settings change when you installed it? I would have a look in the bios to see if there are any settings for fans etc.

I just bought a new toshiba pc i got it last thursday and when im just sitting at the desktop the fan just kicks into high gear constantly running and making noise and then after a few minutes it stops but it also starts back up making the same annoying noise minutes later is the fan suppose to be working so constantly? And the cpu temperature is constantly at 30 degrees or higher is that normal? even when i turn on the pc after its been off for a few hours its still in between the same temperature range that i mentioned earlier. also for example on this pc if i have firefox open and i have photoshop open or any other programs the screen brightness changes slightly dimmer when i switch from one program to another on its own. Im not sure should i take it back im thinking about doing that i cant take the annoying fan and the automatic switching of the screen brightness upon switching application windows is a little strange.

A:my fan is constantly running and is very noisy what do i do?

A constatly running fan usually means overheating or a defective fan. You said 30C or higher. The higher is the imporant part, as 30 is not too high

Over the last couple of weeks I have noticed that my notebook PC (DELL Inspiron 700m) hard drive has been running more or less 100% of the time the machine has been powered on. Task Mgr/Processes indicate that "msiexec.exe" is running at 99 and CPU usage is at 98-100%.
At the same time, I have also had several incidents of "about:blank" pages in IE (6.0) opeing themselves automatically. During a 30 minute period last night a total of 8 pages opened (I had 8 IE windows opened automatically).

1) are these two issues related?

2) I have checked that "Windows Installer" in Systems is set to "Manual".

3) I also try to turn off the msiexec.exe in "Processes", but it turns it self on within seconds again.

4) I have run multiple spyware software applications trying to find and delete the cause of the "about:blank" problem, which I think is a browser hijack, but to no use. I've run Webroot's "SpySweeper", SpyCatcher and F-Secure's "BlackLight" and Trend-Micro's online "HouseCall". Each of them found malware, but didn't solve the problem.

5) I am using Microsoft OneCare with Defender as my antivirus and malware protection.

I'm at a loss and unless someone has a solution I don't see any other way but to reformat in order to solve the problem.

Please help, someone.

Hello! my old computer's HD is Running constantly. i cant get it to stop work. is it a hardware problem or software? and how can i solve it? thanks for your help

A:My Harddrive is running constantly

There's quite a few things that can have that effect. Let's start simple and work up.

How old is the hard drive?

I would check the overall space of the hard drive, good practice to have at least 20% free. The HD may also be fragmented, you can check the status of both of these from the disk defragment application. If the HD space is lower then 20%, you may want to delete temporary files from Disk cleanup.

Next I would check the RAM and Virtual memory amount, it depends on what system your running, but a good baseline is anywhere from 2gb to 4gb of ram, and 1.5x your current ram amount = virtual memory. You can confirm these from the Task Manager, under the Performance tab.

If those come up clean and fine, you may want to do a quick virus scan. I personally recommend Malwarebytes, you can find the most current version from their website at Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

The resulting heat means my laptop sounds like it is trying to take off. I have tried removing .xml files from indexing as has been suggested on my multiple searches. Didn't help at all. Somehow turning off the process if possible is also not a solution in my opinion.

Looking in Event Viewer, I noticed a great many of the following 'Warnings' from the 'Search' source "The protocol host process 8472 did not respond and is being forcibly terminated {filter host process 10000}." The numbers involved change frequently.

Any ideas as to how I can fix this? It's driving me mad. I have attached a screenshot from the process tree area of Process Monitor, it is perhaps relevant.

Can anyone off assistance? I have a dell laptop and a friend of mine was using it over the weekend. This person was accessing 'myspace' and 'myspace im' which I think surfaced this problem. When I started up my computer I got this STOP error: IRQL_NOT_GREATER_OR_EQUAL

So I inserted my windows xp pro OS disc and tried to re-install. Well now, the egg timer is constantly running when I start up the system and when I look at the performance, it's at about 45% when I have nothing running. And sometimes the STOP error comes up at start up.

Have taken delivery of a new desktop pc and it is ok except for the fact that the fan cranks up to (a noisy) full speed when pc switched on and carries on like this until it is turned off.
I queried this with supplier's help desk but they assured me that this is normal?

I am using a HP Pavilion dv6 with an Intel i7-2630 QM, 6 GB RAM and AMD Radeon 6770M GPU (along with Intel Graphics Card). In the past few days, anytime I open a program, such as Mozilla, Chrome, Spotify, the computer's fans kick on. This has never happened in the past. Usually I have to run a video through the browser or play a game for the fans to turn on. The fan turns on when on AC power and when on battery. When this happens, the CPU usage is around 5-7% with 40-50% RAM usage (no change from the past). I am not sure why all of the sudden the laptop's fans are turning on. I have looked at the processes and do not see anything out of the norm and the average temp of the CPU's is about 51-54 C. I have not installed any new software in the past several months. Any input or ideas about why this may be happening would be greatly appreciated. I use Process Explorer and Core Temp to monitor my computer as well as Norton 360 as antivirus software. Thanks.

Older Fujitsu Lifebook N series notebook with Vista. Recently fans (2) both seem to operate at top speed as soon as the computer boots up, even from a cold start. Tried installing speedfan but it triggered a BSOD when scanning the hardware every time I tried to use it. Then tried Core Temp, that wouldn't install either. No BSOD, said something was blocking it, but I disabled Adaware and AVG. Laptop appears to operate normally except for the fan noise. Attached the hijackthis files. TIA.

ps...should have mentioned I took it apart, cleaned the fans (not that dirty), and re-pasted the CPU and heat sink.

This is pretty much the basis of my problem and it happens in that order always. I got a new HP Probook 4530s less than a year ago and have barely used it because of this annoying problem. I'll be on the web doing my thing and just using the arrow keys to scroll up and down a page. After some time, the arrow keys will just stop working so then I'll go to the scroll bar. Next my touchpad will start highlighting everything no matter where I tap and then any links I click will open up in a new window. I've even attached a USB mouse and get the same results with the highlighting and new windows. The browser I typically use is Firefox. I loathe Internet Explorer.
 
I just can't seem to figure out why it's doing this. It updates itself almost every boot and is fine otherwise.
 
Any ideas?

Hi there,

I am not an expert, but i am fairly competent on most things - here's my problem.

I recently took a look at a relatives pc. It kept resetting before windows would boot up. I had someone look at it, and put it down to a mobo / cpu problem.

As it was socket A, I decided to change both, and opted for a sempron 2600+ cpu and a asus (HP) k8n8x mobo. After installing the new mobo (with both 20 pin and 4 pin connectors) and processor, i installed the video card, 512mb ddr 3200 ram, hdd and connected the monito and the mouse (usb) and keyboard (ps2). Once i plugged in power lead the board powered up but no signal went to the monitor, nor to the keyboard, although mouse powered up.
All fans power on, all drives, cpu heats up - but no matter what configuration i use to connect the power switch and othe led cables the pc gets power as soon as you plug in power cord, and the buttons don't serve any function.

As for system beeps - i wouldn't know, as there doesn't seem to be anywhere to connect the speaker to on the motherboard.

I am losing the battle here, and i would really appreciate it if anyone could give me their feedback to assist me along. By the way the psu is 250W.

Thanks in advance
 

A:Installed new cpu and MOBO - power constantly on / wont do anything

Welcome aboard Paul, hopefully we can help. First things first, when you change out a motherboard (mobo) it requires, under most circumastnces, that you do a complete, fresh install of windows. Sometimes windows will accept a new mobo and CPU just by loading the new drivers but then there are a multitude of little problems that plague the user forever.


So a few questions:
1. Did you reload windows after fully formatting the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or just plug the HDD in and load the new drivers?
2. Did you install this in a OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) type case (like Dell or HP) and if so is this the original Power Supply Unit (PSU)?
3. What kind of video card are you using?

If this is in a Dell case as an example then that may be the problem as their cases are not wired like others.

Check the legs of the CPU. One got perhaps bent or broken off.
Make sure the mobo is not shorting agains the mounting studs. Do these all coincide with a mounting hole?
Does that mobo require the extra 4-pin power-plug as for Pentium and AMDX64?
Did you connect the reset/speaker/power/etc. small little cables correctly?

i'm really struggling to get to the bottom of my suddenly slower Sony Vaio notebook computer running XP. i've run virus scans, spyware scans, etc. and nothing comes up. when i google looking for problems, i get links to nothing that helps (including 5 year old forum postings about a similar problem).

using the Process Explorer, i've determined that it's the netsvcs portion of svchost that is constantly fluctuating (and it's kernel.dll portions) between 5% and 35% no matter what i'm doing with the computer. turning off Windows Automatic Updates has made no difference. the only thing that works is using the process explorer to kill the netsvcs process - but that's killing the symptom, not fixing the problem.

why is netsvcs constantly running? HOW DO I GET IT TO STOP USING SO MUCH OF MY CPU SO THAT THE COMPUTER WILL JUST RUN NORMALLY???

i can post more info if you tell me what else you need. thanks for all your help!

I'd love some help from you guys into getting to the bottom of this problem.
For about the last 3-4 days my PC has been running slowly. I've been unable to do any online gaming due to this.

I get a lot of "not responding" in various windows and find CPU usage almost always at 100%. Even with no apps running. The Processes tab in Task Manager shows various processes running but 00 for most of them in the CPU usage column. One or two processes will show 02 in that column, but I don't know how to find out what is using 100% of my CPU.

A:100% CPU usage constantly with no apps running

Hi Joyce,

Have you ticked "Show Processes From All Users" at the bottom of the Windows Task Manager "Processes" screen? That will show you more processes, and possibly what is eating up your CPU.

Hello,I received my new ThinkPad X1 Yoga yesterday and the fan is constantly on and the bottom of the laptop is warm.  Being a brand new laptop I am surprised at the amount of noise and can't understand why it is constantly going?   So far I am very concerned and wondering if I should return it?  Anyone else have any similiar issues and if so, any way to fix it? Thank-you in advance, Christa 

A:Thinkpad X1 Yoga Fan Constantly Running

make sure Turbo is not enabled on cpu since when thats enabled it will make cpu work around 100% - 120% so then fan is constantly on even at idle so yeah if you disable turbo it should make fan more silent.

Can some of you folks take a look at this HJT log to see if I have a problem. On my office computer, which runs 24/7, when I come into the office in the morning I have to reboot the machine because the hard drive is working and essentially will not allow any applications to work. This has happened each morning fro the last month. Thanks in advance.

A:Hard Drive Running Constantly

Hello GreenKeyHomes and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

My guess is that either Windows Defender or Norton is doing a scan, thus the hard drive activity. If interupted, then it will simply restart when the system is rebooted. I would suggest that you post a question in the XP forum and let them do a little deeper analysis of what process is utilizing the CPU and taking up the bulk of the system resources at the time of the hard drive activity.

Cheers.

Hi, just a quickie (hopefully).

My laptop, over the last week, has been gradually getting slower and the fans kick in after about ten minutes of use and it's really not liking it if I go on YouTube, the videos play sound fine but the image can't keep up. For the record I use Firefox and other than a good knowledge of navigating myself around my pc to be able to use the Adobe suite, the internet and torrent downloading and other such media uses, I know very little about system technicalities and therefor I am not very good at pc maintainance hence why it's got to this point, I suppose, perhaps there is just too many programs on my pc or files or the fan needs cleaning or I've got viruses or something? Well that's why i'm here I don't really know where to start. I did run CCleaner on it the other day but to no avail.

Sorry for the long post, any help would be much appreciated.

Considering what your computing habits and practices are, it's a good bet that your computer is infected and infested with viruses, malware, spyware, etc..

Greetings all. Ive been having an issue with my PC and im hoping for some help.

This is a computer i built, and its been marvelous. It has a Core2Quad 2.4ghz, 4gb 667mhz ram and a 500gb Hdd.

My problem has been that the hard drive wont stop read/writing. Even after its been left alone over night, and for hours on end, ill look at it and it'll still be active. Its also extremely sluggish, even after a clean install of W7, which i know is because of the hard drive.

Im wondering if i can get a second, third or fouth opinion... but im thinking that the HDD might be bad and its time for a new one. Ive tried reinstalling windows, and its still slow to load, and take for-freaking-ever to boot.

Thank you for any assistance.

Hi,

Every time I start my PC it boots up very slowly and once I've loggd in, everything takes an age to open and the PC is generally sluggish. I've noticed that in Task Manager's process list, explorer.exe is running at 99% even when I've got no programs running!

I've tried ending the process and restarting it but this has no effect. I've run a virus scan with Norton AV and it found nothing.

Has anyone got any idea whats wrong?

Hi.
I currently have 4GB of DDR3 RAM and when I run most applications - mainly games it will automatically tab out of the game after about 2 minutes and tell me windows is low on memory and to close the application.

I have attatched a screenshot showing my task manager processes showing that there is 0 free physical memory with nothing running. I have tried re-installing windows which didnt help.

Any ideas?

A:Windows constantly running out of memory

However you do have 72 services running. Open Task manager again and click the second tab at the top labeled, processes. Here you can see the file that is running and how much CPU and Ram cycles it's munching.
Right click any that are very high memory users and end process.
Some things are critical and your puter might fall over, don't worry you have only stopped them during the current session, just restart.

When you find any high users post back and we'll set about disabling them or setting so they only run when you say so.

Hi there!
I just reverted back to Windows 7 after Windows 10 was sneakily loaded onto my system as a "recommended update" (not cool, BTW, Microsoft). I have an older system, and I know after scanning my Dell on the Drivers site, it was not recommended to keep Windows 10.
Well, now my power fan constantly runs. I've disabled/uninstalled/removed EVERYTHING I can find that's not essential to the system. My CPU usage is a low 4% or LESS at all times, yet the fan runs like mad. It's running right now ... and I'm only using Firefox. <sigh>
Any and all advice would be helpful. Note: I'm not a HUGELY computer-literate person. I know how to disconnect the wires, open the back, blow out all the dust. That's about it. Removing components is not an option. I'm just wondering if there's any "hidden" *** that might have been tinkered with due to the (imo, ILLEGAL) installation of Windows 10 and the subsequent downgrading to Windows 7 (which was great!).
Also, I run/ran some pretty CPU-heavy programs (WoW, Guild Wars 2, Elder Scrolls), and the fan NEVER ran the way it does now. I feel like that's saying something.
Many thanks!MissSea :)

I saw other threads on this issue, but their solutions do not work in my case. I have iexplorer.exe start up automatically and constantly running in the background, while consuming a lot of capacity. I have uninstalled the real internet explorer, but in vein. There is a folder created with iexplorer.exe. I can not delete the file and when I rename it, a similar file is created during the next boot.

iexplorer (or whatever it is) does not run in the background anymore and the annoying pop up ads disappeared.

It works, but I would still be interested to know how to solve this if I would not have had a back up of the boot disk.

I've scrubbed for spyware, viruses and defragged. Now running Win XP SP2, 1 GB RAM, P4 3GHz CPU with Kerio Personal Firewall, NOD 32 and Sunbelt SpySweeper.

FWIW, the drive runs constantly, even at the DOS screen before loading Win XP Safe Mode (keeps running in Safe Mode); also runs at normal WinXP logon screen before entering password.

Odd thing, it seems to run apps comfortably fast. The CPU load seems quite low. I just can't figure out why the drive runs all the time. I've looked at the data from Sysinternals Filemon - virtually all the activity is the E: drive (SATA drive described above).

Any thoughts?

Hello!

I have something that is constantly running on my laptop. I've been reading here for several days and have done the following but still something running. Every time I click on a button try to open something, i get see a (Not Responding) message in the title bar; i wait, and sometime wait & wait, then eventually it opens.

So here's what I've done so far... uninstalled McAfee, I donwloaded & ran MPCR.exe twice, I installed Microsoft Security Essentials (ran a full scan, found nothing). I also uninstalled LOTS of unused software, went to the msconfig startup tab & unchecked things I knew I didn't need to be started automatically.

I've read enough that I know you need the hijack log, so here it is:
