Im really startin to lose hope and i dont know who to turn to

Q: Im really startin to lose hope and i dont know who to turn to

ok my volume slider is ridiculous. i dont know what to do with it. it goes down for no reason and when i put it back up, it goes down again. this has happened for atleast 1-2 years. sometimes i scroll my keyboard volume nob up a little and he volume slider goes all the way up and stays there no matter how much i make it go down. same thing when i turn the nob down. i dont know if its the keyboard volume nob or its something with my sound card cause i tried updating it but it says that its up to date. i dont know what to do cause i've been dealing with this problem for a while now. i've tried everything and nothing works. can someone help me?

A: Im really startin to lose hope and i dont know who to turn to

"keyboard volume nob"


Leave it alone - use the software volume control.


Does the volume then do the same thing?

Okay here's the problem...

Dell Latitude D505, Windows XP Pro (not sure about anything other than that), it was a hand-me-down so I don't have the recovery CD or anything else that it would make sense to have lol! The computer started out running extremely slow. It would be ok for 10 minutes after boot up and then it would start getting really slow to the point where it wouldn't do anything. It wouldn't freeze but it wouldn't open anything (or I didn't sit there for the four hours or however long it would've taken to open)

Well on one reboot I see the blue screen of death telling me something about a physical memory dump. I was able to start up a couple more times before it would not start up, then i was able to start up in safe mode, but eventually i was unable to do that as well.

i have tried to start normally, it just shows me the screen with the windows logo and the green moving bar, i have also tried the last know good configuration, it does the same.

when i try to start up in safe mode now, I get the blue screen that says this:

"STOP: c0000218 (Registry File Failure)
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\DEFAULT
or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support for further assistance."

Well you guys are my technical support group lol! So any help you can ... Read more

Hi all-

Ive recently been experiencing some problems with my laptop. I had an outdated avast antivirus, now I downloaded AVG and am doing a scan but everythings clean so far.

Hi, i was wondering if you could somehow store the saved files of a game onto a external harddrive so i cn use them later.

I wanna do this because, ever since my friend searched the internet for Porn....Thinking it was a big laugh, it has slowndown my pc i swear. I get random fps drops in games now for no apparent reason, every 20mins or so, they last about 5 secs. I scanned for spyware/viruses god rid of everything but still cant seem to have my pc as fast as it was.

So i wanted to just wipe my computer but not lose the saved game files, PLEASE HELP!

( I have some games downloaded from STEAM )

Cheers for any help.

Let me start by saying I am a ***** when it comes to computer hardware, so please bear with me.

I have an eMachines T2895 with 2.8 GHz Celeron processor. It is in a frozen state, where it will not power up, but the status light, and the fan is always on. The monitor only displays a self test, then goes into powersave.

A friend looked at it and told me that the Mobo was fried. I do not want to lose pics and videos I have stored. If I change the Mobo with a new one that is the exactly the same, will I lose information saved. After I change the Mobo, can I access stored files?

Like I said, I'm not good at this, so what is the best way to get my computer working without losing the data I want to keep?
 

A:Mobo got fried, dont want to lose stored data

Assuming that your friends diagnosis is correct (and assuming when your motherboard fried it didn't take any other parts with it), yes. If you install a new (identical) motherboard, that should fix you up and your data will be intact.

If it were me though, in the meantime I would take that hard drive out and install it as a slave in another machine to get your files off.

I have a Toshiba with windows vista.... not sure if this is right forum to have it in but eh. Ohk so i kept getting the blue screen of death and it was only flashing up... but i was still able to log on, except not onto my account it would either just freeze and die or just go back to the log in page. But all of a sudden when i tried to get back on it would come up with the black sceen of death and a movable cursor. Now ive read other peoples forums but im worried that mine may be different to theres seeing as i especially dont want to lose any of my files, because there are over 3 years worth of stuff on there that is extremly important. so can someone please help me step by step because im still very new to computer functions and fixing them etc. youll probably need to be prepared to get a lot of questions.

Alright well....I have been referred to both the hardware and now the virus remove board. You can view the full thread here:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/f217...od-405619.html

But what I have pretty much been going through are BSOD, and slow startups. On little side notes Explorer.exe will sometimes restart itself when I click on the Windows Key (Start) and my network icon sometimes shows the red X over it but I am obviously connected to the internet as this post proves it....Sad part is this is a fresh install maybe 2 weeks old now. My cd/dvd drive is burned out so I dont have access to that. I am running windows vista sp2. I also have Vipre installed and running all the time. *shrug* hopefully you guys can tell me something haha.

Its now 3am and I am going to bed.

Thanks in advance I really do appreciate the help.

Hello dragonleader33,

You've been through the mill, haven't you.

I'm sorry to say that I do not see any malware here. I spent the past hour going over your other 4 page thread, and these logs. Here are the highlights of your Vista thread:


Quote:




It has been going on for sometime now and I thought I just caught a nasty bug...after doing several virus scans it kept coming up clean...so I decided to just clear the HD and reinstall the OS. To my surprise the same stuff occurs. I have ran an HD test and a memory test and both passed.





Quote:




It does appear that it's your USB drivers - either the drivers for the USB on the mobo, or the drivers for the device. It's also possible that the device is malfunctioning, or that there's a problem with the connection between the device and the USB hub (on the mobo).





Quote:




Do you have any other USB devices connected to the system? If so, please disconnect them while we're troubleshooting this problem.

You have numerous outdated drivers on your system. This is known to cause issues with Vista SP2 systems - and some of the drivers (athr.sys in particular) are known to cause BSOD's. Finally, there's a presence of a HAL dll in the drivers - which tends to indicate an incompatibility issue (which supports the supposition that SP2 and older drivers are causing this).

ok so i have strange issue that has carried over to windows 7 from Vista on my DV6500 laptop. basicly what happens is i will be using the laptop or playing a game and the mouse will just all the sudden not allow me to click or select anything. i dont know how it happens and there is nothing different that i do from time to time.

the only way to fix it is just to control alt delete and bring up the task manager. once it goes back to the windows screen it works again.

sometimes only for like 30 seconds and it will start doing it again.

i have upgrade my bios as well as changed the OS 3x and it still has the same issue.

Hi and welcome to sevenforums.
Since your mouse issue has carried over from vista to win 7 it can only be a couple of things. But before I can realy be of much help I need to know everthing about your computer.
Who makes it, what model, how much ram, what kind of mouse, What OS, what mouse driver.

We can start from there

Lightning fried something or many things. Unless you have good hardware testing abilities, this is one time I'd say take it to a shop and get an estimate. Set a limit $100, $200, $300, or whatever you think. If it's beyond that, time for a new machine.

you could try access the BIOS by pressing F10 at boot and then load setup defaults or something like that, be careful because the defaults might not correctly specfy how much graphics RAM the notebook should use, also power settings might be wrong, ACP should be enabled, OS type should be plug-and-play .. don't know if your notebook actually has any of these settings, hope it helps ..

i have recently recieved my friends pc to try and help remove a fake AV virus from his pc. it was not one that popped up a GUI but it did block alot of legit AV programs and internet.
I was able to boot into Safe Mode and run Avira and SuperAntiSpyware to what i thought was removing malware and trojans.
after restart it would come up with Bad Image warnings of missing or invalid DLL files Ie. C:\WINDOWS\system32\vizfxs.dll which is one of the warnings.
it will pop up different warnings for different program but the same or one other DLL will appear to be missing after using SAS and Avira.
After that i installed the Compaq HDD in my XP SP2 machine as a slave and ran Avira and SAS again with SAS saying clean and Avira having i think 31 or 32 warnings of files not able to be opened for scan. so now im here at a loss as to what to do and what to run. i have SAS, Avira, MBAM, Spybot S&D, and HJT on a backup disk if needed to run but i dont know where to begin or what to do with this PC now.

Huh. Surprised this hasn't been answered. I'll take a crack at it, though I'm still using a Lenovo y50 with a gtx 860m.You state that you've attempted to use the gtx 960m by right-clicking on the game (icon?) and that you've looked for the option in nvidia experience.Have you tried navigating the NVidia Control Panel? Google that, and good luck. I'm surprised and disappointed no one on these boards answered your questions. I hope you went direct to Lenovo support after you left this post, and that they helped you resolve your problem, they've been helpful for me in the past.

I have a dell inspiron 1720 laptop. 2 nights ago i went to bed and everything was fine. The next morning i wake up and the screen is black except for saying os will not startup or was not found. I restarted and system repair worked and worked and finally i got the startup again. But it is all screwed up. It starts up to a point but then it says "Macrovision flexnet connect scheduler has stopped working". I can run some third party programs but windows is not fully working and in fact when i try to run windows programs or when i try to even open the control panel i get the "system 32 rundell.dll not working" or "windows system32\wshbth.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or contains an error message" as well
I have run my anti virus program and nothing found. I ran a malware program and nothing found. Chkdsk runs in read mode and says nothing wrong. I ran F12 extended hardware and memory checks and everything passed.

Hi, I am Emy from the Netherlands. Wish you all a nice day!

I have troubles with - at least - one of the computers in the little network here. I will describe some of the troubles.
-Links to internetpages on the desktop dont work. I need to paste those in a blank window.
-2 weeks ago the home internetpage was blocked. After looking in a lot of forums I found how to change the homepage to Google. (by changing the registry)
-Online scanners for spyware dont start/are interrupted or dont find anything wrong
-Windows installer is coming up after every click I make to install Symantec Antivirus. But Symantec is already installed.
-I tried programs like Ccleaner and ATF; also Combofix. The last one was also interrupted (black screen). I installed the recovery console. Dont know how to delete this console.
-Even when I dont use this computer, it is like the computer is busy - at times (sounds like when using a program busy converting media files)
-I couldnt activate my membership. Not using the first link, nor the second one. Got a message that something wrong.
-I found srchassctl in the registry. Erased the Search Assistant. After rebooting ACMRU was gone, but SrchAssCtl is here again
-I found msmsgs a lot of times on this computer. I think the problems started with a message in the Live messenger.

Now I will paste the properly files to this topic. DDS and Attach

Here i am again, complaining about my system..
As my previous topics, this one i think is more serious as i cant boot nor open up advance boot options(f8 dont work). As soon the manufacturers logo show off, an error: "Disk read error. Press ctr+alt+del to resatrt." It remains unless i press shutdown. Power on and it still shows the same.
 
I havent finished the download of the iso(to be used as a recovery method) thats why i opt for another way which is to recover a backup copy of my registry(which iv done by manually exporting it).  However, i have encrypted it before with my administrative user account. Now, im not able to decrypt it via cipher or keys as if i run: "cipher /c thatfilename.reg" it informs me that only the user(my account) and certificate thumbprint can decrypt it. No found backup certificate or keys. Bad for me i dont know how to recover it via the certificate thumprint....
 
My last option that i try is use EaseUs Data Recovery Wizard, which i have googled about tools that can decrypt files...

Since the drive still works you might want to give SpinRite a try.  This isn't free and will probably run for days before it fixes your problems.  I do not see you getting your data back any other way since it is encrypted.  Encryption is great for keeping information private, but I've see a whole lot of data lost due to encryption.  In the end only you can say how much your data is worth.

I have a bit of a strange issue with my computer. Forgive me if I'm a little too descriptive, but I'm not sure which details are relevant and which are not for such a problem. First, the specs:

Model: eMachines T2984
Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 2
Processor: Intel Celeron D Processor 340, 2.93 GHZ, 256K L2 Cache, 533 MHZ FSB
Power Supply Unit: Bestec Model: ATX-250-12E REV: P7
Motherboard: I can't tell, but it appears to be an Intel motherboard by the number of Intel labels on it
RAM: 512 MB DDR SD originally, added 1 GB a couple of months ago
Let me know if you need anything else...

Yesterday, I got home from shopping around 1PM, and I tried to start the computer. I pushed the power button, and nothing happened. I checked all of the cords, and they were all plugged in. Not knowing what else to do, I opened up the case to see if there was something obviously wrong. The only thing that I noticed (other than a bunch of dust) was that the power supply unit was still hot. I shut the computer down about 5 hours earlier after about 20 minutes of use, so it seemed strange that the power supply was still hot. I unplugged the computer just in case there was some sort of fire hazard.

At this point, I called a friend who suggested that the problem might be with the motherboard or the power supply unit.

A few hours later, I plugged it back in to try to get it to work. As soon as I plugged it in, the entire unit suddenly started "running" by itsel... Read more

I would suspect that the Power Supply Unit (PSU) is going south. If you have a spare one laying around, install it and see if the problem goes away.
You can buy a new,better PSU from Newegg for about $40.00. I have used a Thermaltake 430 watt in one of my machines for some time now and it works well.
You will have to check the size of your PSU to be sure a new one will fit into the eMachine.
Here's the page with that PSU on it. It's the last one on the list.

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Connectify pro has an auto start option that does this but it's a paid version, connectify lite is free but I'm not sure if has auto start.

bought a 4gb HDD months ago. Finally got around to plugging it in. Disaster.

It is split into 2 drives 1x2gb 1x1.6 gb

The 2TB partition initialized fine.
The 1.6Tb unallocated space is faded out. Cannot touch it.
The simple solution is send it back. Ebay order istoo old. No longer on my purchase history. Same goesfor Paypal.
Can we delete all somehow and come up with anew 4TB partition????

A:Is there any hope ????

What software did you use to set the partitions? I have used Partition Magic pro in the past but I have found the built in version on windows 7 does just as well.

Firstly search disk Management & then click on create and format....
Make sure your disk is detected. Click on the each partition & right click & then click delete volume. If when you right click & no delete volume is highlighted, the disk is in use by something.

If in doubt or having issue's I tend to use diskpart vie CMD ran in admin mode. Here is a list & instructions on how to use it.

Make sure you select the right HDD first when you use it as you can wipe your active HDD & you won't know until your system freeze's & then everything is gone!

But, where did you purchase the drive from? Also the purchase will be in your paypal records, you just have to search a date range & look through. I think they only keep upto 60 days visible.

But first thing with hardware, test to make sure they work when you receive them if you purchased online using paypal from ebay if that is what you have used because your only protected for 30 or 45 days.

But, what people have been doing lately is selling High capacity HDDs that have gone faulty with bad sectors. So they've pushed the bad sectors to one side, reducing the actual space available but they still work but with a reduced size & many people don't test or use or even notice within... Read more

I really don't know, I've been registered for literally five minutes. If it needs to be moved, please move it.
I have a Dell Inspiron 531s, running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, and a few hours ago I went to do my usual routine of shutting it down and bringing it back up in lieu of the restart option. I also got up to take care of other business for less than a minute, came back and tried to start it back up and was greeted with the power light remaining orange(or is it amber?), the activity light being solid, not flashing at all, and all three fans within spinning rather fast. Now this has happened before, which is why I had taken to leaving my computer on 24/7, with interspersed restarts every week or so, and I had always fixed it by shutting it down by the power button and letting it sit for a minute or two, then starting it back up normally, and it usually took one or two tries to do it, but it always worked.

Tonight, however, it didn't. I've been trying since about 8:45pm(currently 12:49am) to fix this and nothing's worked. I reseated most of the plugs inside that I could get to, nothing looks like it's exploded on the motherboard, and beyond that I am just clueless. I'm thinking, and worrying, that it might be my hard drive died.

I recorded a video of it, about 20 or so minutes into the issue, showing what precisely I'd been dealing with. The portions of the video that go dark are when I moved my camera nearer to the vents so that you could hear the fans spinning insi... Read more

Hello Whiley, Welcome to Vistax64.com.

I'm guessing, with what you have said, your Graphics Card may have had an issue with your Resolution, Temporarily.

1) If you must, go to your Desktop.
2) Right click on the background.
3) Click "Personalize".
4) At the bottom of this menu should be "Display Settings". Click on that.
5) Find "Resolution" and move the slider bar to the left one notch. Click Apply.
--- • This may make your Windows look distorted in some sense, but it's okay.
6) An Alert Box will appear asking if you want to keep the settings. You'd usually click No, but for this issue, click Yes.
7) Now, it may look ridiculous, and maybe even hard to read, but as long as you can see the slider bar, you're ok. Move the slider bar back to where it was before you moved it. Click Apply.
8) This may, or may not in some cases, fix the problem... if this didn't keep reading...
Have you, by chance, updated any of your hardware lately?

If not:

Check For Device/Hardware Updates

1) Click your Start Orb

2) In the Start Search area, type "Device Manager" and press Enter.
--- • This command will require elevation so hopefully you're the Administrator

3) If all branches are collapsed, open Display Adapters. A graphics card and/or video card should now be seen tree'd beneath Display Adapters.

4) Right Click on the graphics card and click Update Driver Software.

Dear all, recently I saw a great gaming monitor, the Acer P243W 24" 2ms LCD. I would like to ask anyone out there if 4:3 scaling is available on this monitor. I understand that other monitors have aspect scaling such that if I run certain games on a 4:3 resolution, there will be black bands so that the image is not stretched. This is a feature I really need.

Thanks and cheers!

Well since it working the most likey problem is with the driver or windows that controls that system tray object. Uninstalling the wireless device and reinstalling may solve this, also from the command promt 'sfc /scannow' may also clear it up. If your using a third party wireless software uninstalling and reinstalling that software would be something to try as well.

I cannot access the Internet from my wireless laptop. The network shows that I'm connected with a strong signal. I'm done all the things that I know to do which is to say I've restarted the router, restarted the computers, etc. I've disconnected and reconnected all in hopes that it would repair itself...not happening. The status says that my computer is sending information but is showing zero coming in. Help? What can I do?

"Worm.Win32.NetSky detected on your machine. This virus is distributed via the Internt through e-mail and Active-X objects. The worm has its own SMTP engin which means it gathers e-mails from your local computer and re-distributes itself.

This process should be removed from your system."

Hi. I've recently upgraded from SP1 to SP2 on my newly built system, as a few minor niggles have become apparent i tried to run an update. After searching windows finds the following suggested updates.

Microsoft Corporation - Windows XP family

Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (KB890923)

Security Update for Windows XP (KB885250)
Download size: 0 KB, 0 minutes

Critical Update for Windows XP (KB886185)
Download size: 0 KB, 0 minutes

Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1

When i try to update i get the message. Windows was unable to update succesfully. I un-installed SP2 & then ran the update again. After searching the suggested update was to SP2 but after installing SP2 the same thing happened. Looking back through my update history it seems all was going well until April 25th but as said before it's a newly built system and theres been a lot of installing and uninstalling so its hard to narrow down what i did on that day which has resulted in this. I was going to system restore to Apr 25th but for some reson there are no restore points avail hmmm.
Couple of other things noticed are: All the download sizes for the suggested updates are 0kb? Also cant remem seeing any hotfix icons in add/remove progs like there were in previous system.
I've run chdsk, defrag, spyware & anti-virus but no joy yet

Any ideas guys n gals, running XP Pro. Thanks in advance.

Yesterday at work I was told one of my test computers shut down three or four times the night before. Sure enough when I turned it on, it shut off a couple of times. I started it up again and went to the BIOS voltage and temperature menu and noticed the temp was 93C and climbing. No idea how high it would go, so I shut it down manually.

I replaced the defective CPU fan after allowing it to cool so I would not burn my fingers. It seems to be ok... at least for now.
 

A:Hope my P4 is ok

I would think you will be ok. P4s throttle down to stop overheating, however with the early P4Ds, they could overheat so fast that the throttle down did not really work.
I would run some stability tests on the system with prime95 and see how it works.

Now over to the serious stuff.

Background:
I had Windows XP Pro SP2 installed, and then i did the huuuge mistake to install Vista Ultimate. Got annoyed and reinstalled XP Pro SP3.
I backed up my files before goin back to XP on an external HD..
And when I copied back the files to the pc I saw, to my horror, that everything looked ok. But when I try to open text documents, it's just garbled text. Looks like this:

%1?Pk??4???r&?g?A??*???t?

??? ?E??l?8???r?/?????H'?????q|Xn?xI

Every single document looks like that, rtf files, txt files, word documents and so on. And I've tried to open them and converting to different codings in word and so on (UTF, ANSII and what not). Nothing works.
And then I saw, when I was gonna import my bookmarks in Firefox that I saved before I went back to XP from Vista, that those html files also are full of garbled text..

I looked around on google, and can't find anything about it.. I would greatly appreciate some help. Every single text document, which is quite a few, is messed up... And some of them, I didnt even open in Vista.. So don't know if it's because of Vista or if its something else...

And all the image files are in their original size.. When I unzip them they look like they are good and ok.. but when i click on them i can view them.. does anyone else know why and if there's a way to fix it? :( Looked around but cant find anything...

A:Hi And Hope You Can Help Me

Hello Yestheydo,

Do I understand your problem correctly ? :

you stopped the Windows explorer process, a warning came up that you can't stop it.
You did it anyway and all your icons disappeared.

Whenever i try to play a game that requires internet access such as: World of Warcraft, Warcraft 3 (both versions), Maple Story, Rakion, and so on, It works fine and then all of a sudden it just freezes at random times and it just locks up and so i have to reboot it. The only thing that works on my computer is Counter Strike and it works fine! I've Taken my computer to CompUSA 5 TIMES! The first time they found a burnt out memory chip, the second was a burnt out motherboard, 3rd they told me to update graphic drivers, Fourth time I took it they kept it there for a while and ended up replacin a bunch of parts and yet it still doesnt work! 5th time they gave up!It Worked Fine for like 2months then i started to get all these problems...

Hello, I'm new here so I hope I can get this right! I'm trying to help a friend by working on his computer. I know somethings, but I'm far from being a wiz, lol! This computer is an Emachine T2958 and it has a 2.66 Ghz Intel Celeron D 330 Processor with 256 L2 Cache & 533 Mhz FSB It has 512 MB DDR SDRAM -Intel Extreme Graphics, And running XP Home Edition with SP2 installed. It has a 80 Ghz Harddrive and this thing is packed full of junk! I think that may have alot to do with the problem. I'm wanting to try to repair this without reloading windows and that might be a trick in itself! When I turn this computer on it will boot up allright, but it will only run for a few minutes and then it will either freeze up or the screen will go black. What's really wierd is when I first started messing with this thing it had Mcaffee (not sure if that's how you spell it) I could run that anivirus and it would run fine, even if it took a half hour, or programs like SFC would run fine, but if I try anything else, even clicking on (all programs icon, in the start menu) Or really just about anything you do, it will freeze. I was able to run Ad-Aware spy checker and it did take out some spyware, but then I ran spybot and it will find a file and it will lock up, or the sceen goes black. I went into regedit to try to remove the file manually and when I click delete, it will freeze and you can hear a tone that sound's, until you turn the computer off.

Hi all I'm new to this site and I hope someone can help me. I have a new computer that likes to reboot. The computer is a p4/2.99 gigherts with 256 mg's of ram and windows xp home. When I download a large file the computer will completely reboot with no warning and sometimes I get a windows is recovering from a serious error message and it says a minidump has happened. The place that built this for me tried to fix the problem by swapping out the ram and then reinstalling windows but the problem was still there. They then built me a new computer and only used the dvd burner from the original computer but the problem is still there. This thing will sometimes go for 20 hours and sometimes 1 hour before it will reboot. The place that built it said it was not the computer that was responsible for this. I am on Sympatico high speed and they said they have never heard of this and it was not on their end. I have borrowed another modem(speed stream) and the thing still did the same thing on this one too. I have scanned for viruses useing different antiviruses and nothing. I searched for spyware using spybot and nothing. I have checked for adware using ad-aware 6.0 and nothing either. If anyone can help me out I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Hi

I have been trying to access a particular website (a reseller hosting website), however each time I try to access it, I get the message - SSL FORBIDDEN PORT ( or similar to this).

The annoying thing is I can access the website from my g/fs PC, so it must be something to do with my own browsers security settings perhaps? I have tried quite a few tweaks, but still cannot get access to this website - very frustrating!
I am really hoping someone will be good enough to advise if they know what this might be.

Thanks

I have a Dell Studio 1737, originally running windows Vista. I got the BSOD and was unable to access my operating system. I was told by my Internet provider that someone had spliced into my Internet line and I had probably gotten a virus. And am thinking that is the case as both the Western Digital harddrive from my laptop as well as my 2TB backup froze up at the same time. My computer did not come with restore disks, and I tried running virus scans through live cd method, but was unable to see the hard drive. I was going to school at the time, so just plopped in another hard drive and put windows 7 on it so I could get my schoolwork done. When I put the new hard drive in, i was advised to put a password on the bios and hard drive, so I did. However, when installing the Dell updates for windows 7, I accidentally used their Bios update as well, which apparently may have flashed the bios. Am not sure what keeps happening with my hard drive, it does not matter what anti virus software I use, the system keeps getting corrupt. I stupidly tried to remove the bios password, which immediately locked me out of the bios. Currently both my Western Digital hard drives are saying they have bad boot members, and if I try putting the old hard drive in I receive a fixed disk error. I do have a backup from my old system, but windows does not see it as a valid backup or something, as it won't let me use it. I have tried asking Microsoft and Dell for help, but I guess Vista is no longer su... Read more

Hello and Welcome to TSF!!

All apologies on the delay.............

Download CWShredder and run it. Click on 'I Agree' button if you agree with it. Click on 'Fix' (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you) and OK. If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here. Let it finish the scan and then hit Next and Exit.

Download and install Spybot S&D. Run Spybot and click on the 'Search for Updates' button. Install any updates that are available. Next click on the 'Check for Problems' button. Let it run the scan. If it finds something, check all those in RED and hit the Fix Selected Problems button. Exit Spybot. If you keep getting the DSO Exploit entries, even after you updated Windows and fixed them, then download the Spybot DSO Exploit Fix and install it over the current Spybot installation.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Also go here to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

A friend told me about this site and I'm not sure my problem can be helped here, but here goes...

I can't see any animation when I look at an animated graphic on my computer. I can see the graphic itself, but not the animation.

Thanks for any help!

A:I hope someone can help me

Hi City Girl, you could try this;

Open Control Panel

Internet Options

Advanced tab

Make sure the box is checked "Play animations in web pages"

Good Luck....moz

I am very new to this and have tried to search your posts for help.

My hubbie opened a email and we now have spyware pop-up problems in three areas. At various intervals, I have three pop up ads, making it seem like my computer is in danger and then trying to sell spyware. One pop up seems to be connected to Windows and it is a red warning popup. I located the two files that had shortcuts on my desktop, PerfectCleaner and SpyAway. I thought that I had removed the programs but after researching I have learned that it isn't that simple and that I have to go further into my computer to remove.

The second problem is that it has embedded a desktop background that no matter how many times I change the desktop picture, it reverts to this particular background within 10 seconds of my changing it. The background looks like an ominous warning that a Spyware threat has been detected and that my computer has fatal errors. It shows a link to follow in order to get spyware.

The third problem is also a pop-up on my desktop toolbar with the triangular yellow shield with the "!" in it with various messages to buy spyware and that someone is trying to obtain passwords.

I have Windows XP and I have Symantec Antivirus for a shield. I have noticed other posters putting up HiJack This logs. Unfortunately I do not know how to get that for you, so if you can tell me where to find this, I will do my best to copy and paste for you.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appr... Read more

Hello,

Today I decied that I was going to install another stick of ram. Prior to installing this new ram my system had 2 256mb sticks and 1 512mb sticks in there. It was running fine, just a little slow. I went out into town and bought a stick of 1 gb ram... Same kind and everything as what is in there now. I figured that i would have to remove the 2 256 mb sticks due to a 512 and 1024 arent going to work together in the same 2 slots (as i was told). So i go ahead and remove the 256 ones and keep the 1gb and 512mb sticks in my computer. I install it all and power up my computer. It goes through that crappy restarting screen every 30 secs. It would not let me into safe mode or my last boot that was successful. So i started reading online and found out that u can turn it off to recieve and error code. Well I did, and this is what I recieved, Ntfs.sys PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. Now that I knew this was going to be a pain in the **** I just tried to put everything the way it was and return the stick of ram. I put every stick in the same slot as it was b4 i started this day. And when i booted the computer i recieve the same error. Why am i recieving this error when i went back to the setup that was working no longer then an hour ago... IF anyone could possibly help me, please do. I am retarded when it comes to computers so please reply as if you were talking to a 5 year old. I want to fix this problem myself because i do not want to give bestbuy a couple 100 dollars for noth... Read more

A:Hope this goes here... please help!

Sounds like it COULD be faulty RAM. Pull the new stick and start up without it. See what happens. You should easily be able to boot with 512MB.

Alternatively, you could (if possible) put the stick in a different slot. I had a system a few years back that had a faulty slot rather than faulty ram.
