I'm sure that there must be an app that prevents your phone changing screen as you pass it from one person to another. Even the slightest touch on the screen as you pass the phone seems to change it back to a previous screen or activates Cortana. HELP PLEASE!

Hi everyone!
 
Here's our story:Ok, semi new ASUS k55A. HDD died a few weeks ago. Installed a new legit copy of Windows 8.1 Pro on a new SSD that I installed in her laptop.Everything worked perfect.She takes college classes at night. This evening, she downloaded what she thought to be a course syllabus. Instead, screen is black with white curser. Laptop won't even turn off when power button is held down. I had to remove the battery to reboot. When I reboot, start up screen shows windows loading. Then screen goes black, and an ad pops up, saying call this phone number to fix your slow computer.Can anyone here help us?How can I boot up and get past the black screen with the ad?Can I do anything other than wipe the SSD clean and start all over again?Please help us. Thanks,Soar

This is on an old computer that has been working great. We have a good firewall and run virus scans regularly. Yesterday morning I got on the internet using Internet Explorer like I always do and did all I normally do (check email, etc.). Didn't visit any new sites.

Then in the afternoon, my husband tried to use the computer but Windows wouldn't start up. Now when you try to log on to Windows, the "Windows has encountered an error and needs to close" thing pops up, and the screen saver stays on.

No icons, no blue bar at the bottom, nothing but the picture. We can get online and to the documents using the Task Manager, but the Internet Explorer icon is no longer there. It is still a file in the system and can be opened, so I didn't know if the disappearing icon had any importance... (and by icon, I mean in the Task Manager. There is nothing but screen saver on the desktop)

My husband ran a virus scan and it came up with one and he quarantined it, but the problem is still there. Neither one of us is particularly computer-savvy. We know how to use it, but not really any technical terms. (I guess I'm saying, please talk to me like I'm 5 )

I am having a very wierd issue with vista's screen saver. So basically when I leave the comp idle it goes into screen saver then turns off the monitor after 15 mins. Sometimes, more often than not, I come back and move the mouse and hit a few keys on the keyboard and nothing. The monitor wont come out of standby I try turning it off and back on, and nothing. I have the latest drivers for everything in my system and I checked the power management settings and they both are able to wake the computer up. I have a G15 keyboard and I keep the leds on and when this happens the leds are off and the lazer for the mouse is off too. Any suggestions as to what my problem is would be fantastic!

Thanks.

Inability to successfully complete power state transitions (awake<->asleep<->hibernating) is almost always caused by driver or BIOS issues. If you're confident that all the drivers are on their latest versions, have you also done the same for the BIOS?

I am having a problem setting a screen saver on my new Windows 10. When setting a screen saver and selecting "Preview" or setting a screen saver and having it go to it at the appropriate time limit, the screen saver displays properly.

However, when hitting a key or mouse move or click, instead of returning to Windows, it displays a black screen and locks. I have tried everything, at the black screen, to return to windows without any luck, other than manually turning the PC off and rebooting.

Has anyone run into this type of virus?

Word documents don't open properly-- if I try to open one, it says it can't open, then will open it as a new document. But all word viruses are showing up as screen savers when looking at "file type". Also, it's adding "rcs" to filenames.

So "lettertoeditor.doc" becomes "lettertoeditorrcs.doc".... but it thinks .doc docs are screensavers (.docx also).

I can't open excel files at all. PowerPoint doesn't seem to be affected.

I have the Nokia Lumia 1520 and I've asked this and explained it already but the solution didn't work. If I change things in my setting, like turn things on or off that weren't already off, my phone will freeze. Like my glance screen, I can't use it because my phone freezes if I do. Also at random times my phone just freezes while it's locked and I have to restart it to get it to work again but it still happens after that. Someone told me to turn my data off and take Cortana off my screen and see if it worked, but it didn't. Can someone please help? I might just reset my phone because that seems like it will work. Thank you

A:Solved: Blue Screen with Walkman Phone

You are probably right, and the first thing I would do is find out if there are updated drivers online at their website.

You can also try the following fix to verify it isn't your USB port that is causing the problem:

First step, Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Create a restore point and name it something like "Before USB Fix". This is to bail you out if something goes wrong during the following process and makes things worse.

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG

You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
1)Filename : fix.reg
2)Save as type: all files
3)Encoding: ANSI
If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be fixcd.reg.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result.

-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------
REGEDIT4
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"

-------------------------- Use text before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.

If I fill any Windows phone or Windows 10 mobile start screen with live tiles. Will all the live tiles flip simultaneously or will Windows OS pause few apps and let other apps update their tiles?

A:Windows phone start screen filled with full of live tiles.

"Filling" up a start screen with live tiles is unclear - do you just want to fill in the screen without making it scroll or would you like to make the screen scroll down almost indefinitely?
In any case, however, Windows Phone doesn't update all of the tiles "simultaneously", but rather in a staggered manner to conserve resources. The flipping is also not simultaneous.
I HAD a Windows Phone - a Lumia 1020 running Windows 10 Mobile preview (one of the last OS versions) - and I had over 60 pinned, around 20-30 of them were Live Tiles. I noticed that they don't get updated all at once, but more of "one after the other".
The apps and tiles are almost always "paused", since the OS will not update them continuously but rather at a pre-determined interval.

 I'm on a verizon HTC One M8 for Windows this Is actually a mixture of a few problems, I'm wondering what to do now since the recovery tool doesn't detect my phone when in the bios screen or whatever that is... Also
I'm pretty sure I'm using the newest fast ring build, 10586 if I remember correctly.
1: I now require a 2 amp charger for my phone, since using windows 10
2: I cannot pull the battery, this means the phone automatically attempts to turn on when charging, however the problem is the phone often resets several times and never gains enough charge to maintain power.
3: because of problem 2, Ive been working around the issue by entering the hardware recovery mode during boot, this way the phone will take enough of a charge to stay on and continue charging while locked
note* sometimes the rebooting trips some security feature and requires me to restart the device after full charge is reached, not sure if that's a bug or what...?

So I can sync the windows phone using bluetooth to the Mobile Centre and use Oulook 2003 as contacts

Q1) can I just sync from the Windows Phone to outlook and therefore obtain a complete copy of the contacts - I do NOT want the blank contacts on outlook to delete the contacts on the phone , can I set up the Sync from Phone => outlook

then I will have a backup of the contacts on outlook and can save the contacts using export, which we also need to have

XP Service Pack 3

Screensaver is enabled and so is 'Display welcome screen when coming back from screensaver'.

This works most of the time, however on a regular basis the screensaver will resume to the following screen and just stay there forever.


The only thing to do is to press the power button, at which point a popup alerts that a user is logged in, do you still want to shut down.

Thanks,

Hey there,

First off, I'm posting this on a mobile device (iOS).

Okay, so about 5 minutes ago I shut down my PC. Then it kept loading "Shutting down". Finally, I closed the lid and opened it. Now the screen is completely black, with the power button, touchpad and f12 buttons still glowing blue like usual.

How do I fix this? Should I hit the power button? If I'm correct, my PC was left off at a full battery/half full. I also created a Restore Point today.

A:Shut down PC, shows black screen?

Okay, now I have BSOD. It says "driver_power_state_failure".

I have a Toshiba laptop running windows 7. It has been running like a well oiled machine since the day I got it.

I turned it off to watch TV, then when I turned it back on, the screen shows the Toshiba screen for about 1/4th of a second and then goes black.

If I hit F8, F10, or F12 nothing shows up. I have the biggest project of the semester due Tuesday so I really need some help.

I appreciate any help. Thanks.

A:my cpu shows black screen no bios please help

Hello again!

There is a chance that you have fried your motherboard (from trying to turn it on without the riser pins installed).

Here's what I would try (and confirm) before RMAing the board.
1. Reset CMOS using the jumpers (look in your manual). If your board doesn't have CMOS reset jumpers, then unplug all power, and take the CMOS battery out for a half hour.
2. Can you test parts on another computer? Are you sure your monitor works? What about that video card? What is it? Does it require a connection of its own to the PSU? (many do).

Probably a good idea to list your system components in detail.

This morning, when I turned the PC on, the monitor only showed a black screen. It was working well last night though. Th PC seems to work normally as it seems like it reaches the desktop part with start menu and all the short cut Icons. I know this because after waiting for a while, I press the windows button then press "U" two times(it's the hot key for shut down and turn off). The light around the power button of the monitor keeps on blinking instead of a consistent light(this thing usually happens after turning the PC on while there's still power on the monitor until the AVR is turned off). There were no beep sounds and such when turning the PC as it never had those kind of sounds even when things are okay.

If this helps, the fan for the video card is still working as other fans as well.

What could be the problem? Video Card? Monitor? Monitor to PC connection? I probably just need to know which is the problem for now.

EDIT: I'm not very knowledgeable on hardware terms and I'm not very good at this stuff as well so I probably won't try to do changes on my computer by my own.

Hi guys, I've done a fair bit of looking into this but I can't get a definitive answer. I recently bought a Gigabyte GeForce 750 TI OC Edition to go with my computer, knowing it would fit in the case. But ever since I've tried to install it, it has been a nightmare. It fires up, fans whirring and all but all I get is the HP BIOS screen, no imput commands and 3 quick beeps then it goes to an entirely black screen with a blinking underscore in the top left hand corner. From what I've read around I have to enable Legacy mode in BIOS, but since my computer is running the HP 7.07 BIOS I can't find that it even remotely supports Legacy mode. Then I've read that some HP MoBo's cannot effectively run a different graphics card due to age/restrictions. It doesn't sound like a power issue as I've already upgraded the PSU with no issues. I'd just love an answer to what exactly is the issue because it's driving me nuts and I'm pretty much ready to sell the card at this point. IF I have infact bought a non-applicablegraphics card, could you recommend one that would ACTUALLY work? Thanks again.

Apologies if this post is in the wrong section but as I am unsure of the cause of the problem I thought I'd start assuming it is a fault with the OS.

I'm having a strange problem with my PC which runs Windows Vista Home Premium. Everything was OK the other night when I switched off but when I switched on last night the following happens:

it boots up normally and I get the Vista login screen
after signing in, the 'waiting' graphic takes longer than normal and I get no login 'sound' jingle
at the point where it would normally reveal my desktop it opens up to the 'Documents' folder instead
when I close the Documents folder all I get is a totally black screen with the mouse pointer - no wallpaper, no shortcut icons and nothing at all along the foot of the screen (i.e. no Start button, startup programs or system tray) so basically I cannot access anything at this point
I can access Task Manager by using Ctrl-Alt-Del and I'm able to logoff/restart etc.
none of the shortcut buttons on the keyboard will work (e.g. email, internet, calculator etc.)
I have rebooted a number of times in the vain hope it would return to normal but no joy. The only thing I can think of that was out of the ordinary was just before I'd finished with the PC a couple of nights ago I ran Spybot S&D and it found 2 suspicious entries which I immediately asked it to fix, which it did successfully. Unfortunately I did not take note of what these unwanted ent... Read more

Hi BleepingComputer, long time reader, first time caller.
 
This is my first time troubleshooting a Windows 8 machine. I have a Lenovo G500 here with Windows 8. After I log into Windows, the screen goes black with only a movable white cursor.
 
Fortunately, I can Ctrl+Alt+Del and pull up Task Manager from here. I can open up Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, etc.. With an Ethernet cable, I can access the Internet. However, I cannot get the desktop or Windows taskbar running.
 
From a half hour of Googling, the only real solution I've seen is to uninstall the graphics driver through Safe Mode. I removed the Intel® HD Graphics 4000 driver and only the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter remains. Nothing came from that.
 
Anyone have a solution, or other troubleshooting steps I could go through, for this? This is not my machine, so I couldn't tell you what could have been installed to cause this.
