Hard times unpacking exe files.

Q: Hard times unpacking exe files.

My problem is that if u wanna unpack an exe file, could be a setup exe., then it will save the data in the temp folder (Windows drive), and my problem is that i made a patision (or however to spell that in english.. ) so i got 10 gb for windows, so if my windows ****s up i will be able to just reinstall without worrying too much for my files. (Programs like registery mechanic will often solve the registery prob.) Anyways, this means i don't have enough space on my c-drive, as i should have given it more ofc.. Should have given it 15 instead, as my programs are on that drive aswel... anyways! thats not the matter.. the matter is that when some exe. files wants to extract they want to extract huge amounts of software before installing, im talking about 1,3 gb + here, and i cant get that much space without deleting half of my programs or so.. SO what i want to know, is there a way to manualy unpack an exe. file ? Or is there a way to change its unpacking destination, so it won't save in temp.. thanks for all upcomming answer.

A: Hard times unpacking exe files.

Change the place where it unpacks to the other partition you have for files, programs etc. This should be on the extraction wizard.

Whenever I download a large archive, whether it's 7z, RAR format or some bin format (that's unpacked via provided installer), I always have problems unpacking.

What happens is that, while extracting, I receive errors about some files that are corrupted and cannot be extracted. The FUNNY thing is, if I try to extract the same archive again it says some other file is corrupted while the one that was "corrupted on my first try now extracts properly. I don't know how is that even possible.

1) I know that the archives I download/get from friends are not corrupted, and I can trust those sources.
2) I've tried basically everything, like re-downloading, trying with numerous attempts, and updating the software I use (7z, Win RAR, or Daemon tools for those bin archives I mentioned).

Any help? Thanks,

A:I ALWAYS have problems unpacking files. Any help?

I'm wondering if your hard drive has some bad sectors. You might run a disk check program to see. Your drive manufacturer will probably have one.

Hi guys, I have just recently upgrade my computer from Windows XP to Windows 7, but since then I haven't been able to install most games.

During installation, each game has a different error message but generally, the problem seems to lie in games that require unpacking large files, such as *.bin. For example, while trying to install Assassin's Creed 3, this message appeared:

An error occurred while unpacking: archive corrupted! Unarc.dll returned an error code: -7. ERROR: archive data corrupted(decompression failed)Click to expand...

or

Decompression failed with error code: -12. Bad CRC in the archive data0.binClick to expand...

Please help me, I'm going mad.

Computer's spec:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
Processor: Intel Core i5 CPU 750 @ 2.67GHz (4CPUs)
RAM: Elixir DDRam 3 2GB x2
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
DirectX 11
Motherboard: ASUS P7P55D
BIOS: 9/24/9 Ver: 08.00.15

What I've tried so far:

Updated drivers of graphic card, mainboard, etc.
Ran as Administrator.
Installed in safe mode.
Tried installing these games in another computer (everything's fine)
Reinstalled Windows 7.
Formatted entire HDD, reinstalled Windows XP (now even Windows XP has this problem)
Bought a new HDD

On an external USB drive, WD Elements, 4TB (Notebook Medion akoya P8614) some files obviously became corrupted after copying them on the same drive (the files are not copied from another drive, but may be such files can become corrupted also). There was not any error message displaying the copying to be failed. I copied the same archive (zip or rar) a few times to another folder and in the same folder on the same drive and some of the copies have a different check sum (the check sum also differs among the corrupted files, so corrupted files have different check sums, not the same wrong check sum) and WinRAR or other programs show an error message that a file or more are corrupted when I try to unzip some of the copies. The file size stayed the same of all of the copies.

When I plugged in the USB plug of that drive the first times the external drive was not shown, after a few times and waiting finally it was shown. And some time ago with another Notebook (same manufacturer) I had some kind of the same problem: when unzipping / downloading archives to (or on, I do not remember anymore at the moment) a 2,5 external 640 GB drive (A sometimes they were corrupted.

A:Copied files a few times on same external hard disk: copies corruptedd

A couple of things come to mind, one I've read about on the 'net is older computers don't do well with 3TB and larger HDDs and the other is the Power Options need to be set to NOT shut anything down, Windows sometimes doesn't properly recognize when a USB port is or is not idle. I have mine set on the When Plugged In feature to turn nothing off, no Sleep, no Hibernation, etc. The defaults for When On Battery are fine as I don't usually do the heavy-duty copy/move of files then.

first of all, hello to you all

as they thread title may allude; i am a little disgruntled at my first atempt to install my brand new genuine Windows 7 x64 Home Premium OEM

after the first 4 attempts at installing Win7 i managed to get around the installer asking for 'unknown device driver' by unplugging my card reader. I have been running XP x64 OEM for some time and have re-installed it at least 5 times and have never had any problems what so ever; if only the same were true for Win7!

having done some research it became clear that Win7 should take no more then 30-40 minutes to install; but here i am 23hrs later and it STILL hasn't even started installing yet; its still 'unpacking windows files' @ 99%...

has anyone else had this problem? if so, what did you do to fix it?

thanks in advance

A:23hrs - "unpacking windows files"

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Nice job on the system specs.

Sorry your having problems.
How long has it been at 99%?

We've made a list of questions which are the result of reoccurring incidents seen so far.
If you can have a look at these and give us your answers we'll be able to give you better suggestions.

Questions to use for help with Installation Issues

We have also seen people with AMD mother boards having these problems, try taking out all memory cards except one, if that doesn't work then move the memory card to a different slot and try again.

Do you have HyperTransport function settings in your BIOS?
There are two options in the BIOS Setup called K8 -- KN HT Speed and K8 -- KN HT Width, both are normally set as Auto. Change them to K8 -- KN HT Speed to 1x and K8 <-> KN HT Width to 8 8. You can change them back after the install.

If this doesn't work, then reply with more details and we'll try again.
EDIT:
Just read a thread where a guy with an AMD board was having similar problems said he turned off 'Cool 'n Quiet' setting (the feature that turns down the fan RPM). He also found a bad RAM stick by running memtest86+. After that Win7 installed with no problem. Might be worth a try.

Bad news is I haven't the faintest idea what to do with them now. there aren't any .exe or installation files as far as I can see--just those 18 bundles. Can anyone straighten me out?

Hello everyone
It's a long time since I don't write an article in MA but I decided to explore some important concepts to analyze malware.

"Understanding packers and detecting a packed file" is a topic treated by @kram7750 in this thread :http://malwaretips.com/threads/malw...ng-packers-and-detecting-a-packed-file.42356/

I will talk to unpacking
The manual unpacking is definitely the most complex to learn. Although a malware can be sometimes much more difficult by a packer, it is much easier to explain the theory behind a malware, rather than explain the operation of a packer. This is primarily due to two reasons. First, you need to have a unpacking knowledge of a wider number of arguments: it is not enough to understand the machine code and know that debugging. In addition, the term "packer" is very generic. The packer implement all sorts of anti-reversing techniques and even an entire book would suffice to explain them all in detail.

I will try to make myself understood even by those who don't have a clue what a packer. However, it is useless to deny that you have to engage, and not just to see this introduction. Do not confuse, even if there are other threads, this article represents the real end of our route. If you include the following, all the rest you'll learn without difficulty and it will update your knowledge base package.

I recently ordered a new PC from ironsidecomputers and it didn't work when I plugged it in, I later pulled the front connectors loose replugged them and was able to get it running but the reset powered it on power button reset the system. I was happy but PC was in the wrong spot so I turned it off put it where it need to be and nothing I tried all other outlets then the one that worked previously but nothing. I referred to manual and seemed original set up was wrong but I'm not getting to work in the right set up. What am I doing wrong is it just power problem?

Sounds like to me the front panel connection is hooked up wrong, which could do some damage to the system over time. If your not comfortable taking it apart and reconnecting all if it, I'd wait and take it back to the place where you bought it and have them look at it and fix it.

I have just replaced my old desktop for a new one that comes with windows 7 64 bit. But not sure why ever since I started using the new desktop to unpack rars and especially rars with parts, both winrar and 7zip often have error messages like:

"Packed data CRC failed"
"The volume is corrupted"
"The file is corrupted"
etc.

For example, one of my family member who lives in Ireland wants to send me a bunch of videos and photos taken from a trip they went. He packed these bunch of files into three part rars and uploaded onto a file hosting website and so I have to download each one of them. I first tried jdownloader and downloaded them but couldn't unzip it. Then I tried to download in the normal way using firefox but still couldn't unpack. And I started to think is the pack corrupted?

But then I tried to use my netbook (with win7 32 bit starter os) and downloaded the files through this computer, it unpacked smoothly without a hassle. I then tried to copy the files I have downloaded using my new desktop to my netbook and try to unpack them there but again it saids the file is corrupted. That means somehow it's not winrar or 7zip's problem but the way my new computer writes the files into the hard disk creates corrupted files?

So what's wrong with my new computer? Even my old desktop won't have these problems. Is it because of the 32 64 bit difference? Perhaps my Ireland cousin packed the files with winrar 32 bit and i used 64 bit didn't work? Or ... Read more

You may have other Spyware issues. First you can disable the Firewall. If the Spyware program opens then it has it's own Firewall that conflicts with Windows. You should also download CCleaner delete temp files, run Registry Cleaner too. Then download malwarebytes run full scan delete nasties.

This help request might fit in alternate discussion threads, but this seems like the most logical place to post... these could be 2 separate issues, but it feels like they are connected to me.

Problem:
A - Unpacking any RAR, Zip, 7z, etc file - particularly large ones results in CRC or other unpacking errors 90% of the time. Sometimes a simple retry works, sometimes re-downloading the compressed file works.. sometimes nothing works. Anything over 1GB is almost sure to fail miserably every time (often fails on different files within the package.
(this occurs using winzip, winrar, 7zip)

B - Multiple game client crashes - Oblivion, Various MMORPG (WoW, LOTRO, many others) crash constantly.. if the computer doesn't freeze or blue screen, the error is 100% the client .exe file .. it doesn't happen just on strenuous load sequences or 'laggy' areas.. it can just happen sitting in the middle of an unpopulated area.. varies once per 1-5 hrs.. rarely goes 3 gameplay attempts without at least 1 crash.

Both errors have occured pretty consistently over the last 3 years.. i give up on some games that have more crashes than others.. and give up on some because i can never even unpack the game to play it.

Original System: Dell XPS 600 Purchased October 2005 .. problems started right away - but I just ignored most of them until after warranty

You would be best served by removing the 10GB drive and installing the 80GB drive. Then use the XP Pro CD to install (including partition and format) XP on it. Once that process is complete, you can shut down and add the 10GB drive back in as a secondary.

is something beyond repair or is there just lots of corrupt files and sfc can only do so many at a time so has to be re-run until there all done?

A:sfc/scan run 3 times still corrupt files?

The System File Checker (SFC) can only repair files that are in the mirror. And those are only the most important files. For a better resule you have to run a startup/repair with your installation/repair disc. That has a bigger inventory of files.

But even then there may be files that cannot be repaired - e.g. ,dlls that came with program installations that were not on the original installation disc but which were installed from the web.

I purchased a new Maxtor 40gig 7200rpm hard drive. I formatted and installed Win98 SE(without probs). However, I have a problem installing large applications/programs(games, for example). The installation starts off fine, but around %20 of completion the install time slows to a crawl and progressively gets worse. I timed a two disc game I just installed: one hour, thirty minutes.

I have a CDRW and DVD drive, and tried the same game on both with the problem occuring at the exact same point(I have current drivers).

Small files aren't a problem, if it isn't over 50mb, the file or application will install smoothly and quickly.

As far as I can tell it looks like a hard drive problem, but it's strange the installation will start off normally. Also, I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but my power supply is only 250w.

Thanks for any suggestions/answers.

When I download large files like about 200mb upwards the download finishes fine but it does not unzip properly (file is corrupt) or if its an exe it says it is corrupt. It is not a problem with a particular file or a particular download source. I checked each of my partitions for errors, but still this problem is happening.

I think its my hard disk, what can i do to solve this problem. Its a recent problem its used to be fine 2 months back.

Monday around 12PM or so, I woke up and saw my computer had some spyware. There was a small popup saying my computer was infected and the background was changed to say I did. I ran Spybot and MalwareBytes and deleted everything I could, then rebooted my computer with Spybot running upon rebooting to delete anything that was left. Day after my background changed again while I was playing a game, so I ran Spybot and MB again, and the background hasn't changed since, probably cause I used HJT afterwards. Since then though, whenever I happen to play one particular game, I get a random Application error message for wmiprvse.exe, and yesterday got it for iTunes.exe when playing with music. So far, wmiprvse,exe only has this error when the game is running, and I've been playing it for over a year without these errors.

I don't want a program which will automatically synchronize 2 drives no questions asked, but would like one which displays a list of all the files which are not on both drives, and also ones which don't have the same date/time stamp. Then I can choose which ones to copy/overwrite, etc. and from which drive to which. One drive may not necessarily have all the correct files.

Is there such a program?

Thank you for your assistance.

I am trying to fix a hp 2000-299wm laptop. I am encountering opening the browser and it keeps refreshing either on a separate window or redirecting to the browser home page. I have tried using google chrome, IE explorer, and mozilla firefox. None seem to work. I retested it after each re-image and the same thing happened. When the browser is closed and not being used it will pop up randomly every 30 seconds -2 minutes. at this point i try to reinstall the operating system via flash drive which i start getting computer freezes shortly after bios splash screen with long continues beep. manage to get around freezes by enter startup menu moments after post splash is launched. i start up the computer and it goes through updates to registry and program files. Once windows starts again i noticed a malware antivirus program installed that i did not install. After that i decided to flash the bios with the latest update retrieved from another computer and flashed the bios which flashed successfully. But problem still persisted.

I have a Dell Latitude C840 running Windows XP that I have had for several years now. I used to build computers years ago but with technology advancing so fast, I would call myself internediate, especially from the software side of things.

My computer has gotten quite a few problems; from a hard boot, I have to do three soft reboots before it will run decently. I can no longer run any streaming video without skips and pauses and I use Chrome on Facebook where I frequently play games and it has gotten to the point that I can only play for 10 minutes or so before the whole computer gets bogged down, CPU is running at close to 100% etc and it doesn't matter if I use Chrome, IE or Firefox, happens to all three. I also can't run more then 2 items at a time.

This is my 3rd fresh clean install, using both Vista x86 and x64, and all new hardware as well (new mobo, HD's, cpu, ram, etc):

symptom:
after a day of two of creating a user account, the HD access starts to become excruciatingly slow, and gets slower with time. When you use explorer and want to access the Hard drives, the system takes 3-7 seconds to open the folder. When browsing pictures, it takes 3-6 seconds to switch to the next, etc.
Creating a new user account solves the problem temporarily, until a day or two passes, and then the same thing starts to happen!

What I've tried so far:
- Disabled Indexing (windows Search service)
- Disabled Hard Drive Indexing
- Tried booting up as IDE, as well as AHCI
- Created new install with RAID0, and same issue.

System:
* e8400
* Asus P5Q-E with latest bios
* 2 x 320 WD 3200AAKS Sata drives, 1 x 250 WD 2500AAKS Sata drive
* Asus SATA DVDRW drive
* 4 GB Crucial Ballistix PC2-6400 (DDR2-800)
I've noticed this problem accelerates even more when using the "sleep" power mode. But even when disabling this, It still happens.

I've googled for over 2 weeks. I've done 3 fresh installs, I've replaced all the HW, and used 3 different copies of Vista Ultimate, with same results!

UPDATE: here is a video of the problem:
YouTube - Windows Vista Hard Drive performance issue

A:Slow hard drive access times, gets slower with time!

Instead of disabling indexing in the services menu, try setting it to manual. In your hard drive's property sheet, on the general tab, check 'index this drive for faster searching'. See how that works?

Btw, are there any other services you've disabled? That may be a problem. Vista is pretty good about services, unlike XP, and you really don't need to go disabling a bunch of them. Doing so may cause more problems than it's worth.

However, if you must, I would advise setting services you don't want to manual... just in case... and follow Viper's guide: http://www.blackviper.com/WinVista/servicecfg.htm

I saved 8Gb of music to an 8Gb memory stick (I have been using the stick fine for about a month before the music went on.) I thought that the music had gone on fine, as the normal time bar procedure happened. When i get to put the music back, i find that about 300 songs have copied fine but the other 900 songs have gone and been replaced by about 9 songs that have repeated about 100 times each. None of the songs will play on any machine. What has happened.

A:Memory stick repeating files hundreds of times

Memory Sticks or Flash Drives as they are called, are subject to damage from static electricity and other environmental conditions.
They aren't much good for "Permanent" storage.

In your case, I'd advise making sure you have a HD copy of all the data and then reformat the Flash Drive. Then try copying the data back to it.
Make sure that the amount of data does NOT exceed the capacity of the Flash Drive.

If it's not totally hozed, that should straighten it out.

Good Luck,
The Shadow

Client has been getting BSODs after computer goes into sleep mode. First step I took was removing AVG free antivirus since it had a reputation for causing this. This is a Windows 7 Home Premium laptop. Let me know what information you need. I have been trying to use WinDbg to figure out the process causing the issue but the only help it seems to provide is that ntoskrnl.exe is causing the issue.

I have under circumstances accidentally plugged in a potentially infected usb drive to my computer. To see if any damage was done I downloaded and ran malwarebytes chameleon and it returned 28 files found. I quarantined these but before I could click save log file the Mbam chameleon restarted my system to finish malware removal, I let my system reboot and ran Mbam chameleon a second time. 5 files found. I quarantined these and saved the log file just barely before the restart. During both of those mbam scans I had time to write down the names of some of the files on a piece of paper.
FIRST SCAN:
Pup Optional Delta Registry Key
Pup Optional uTorrent Rontrol Registry Rey
Pup Optional Babylon Registry Key
Pup Optional Frostwire Regisstry Key

Hopefully I am posting in the right area

Background Information: About a year ago I purchased an ASUS g74s which contained a 640gb mechanical drive in drive bay #1 and an empty drive bay #2 for expansion. After about a month of use I purchased a 120gb SSD for use as my main OS and software drives. I backed up my data, made a factory reset disk, and wiped my original drive. I then installed the SSD into drive bay #1, formatting it into two partitions (OS, and software). I then used my original mechanical drive in bay #2 as my data drive by pointing all of my libraries to it (as well as some of my less used software).

Issue: Ever since I have made this change my computer has been plagued by an annoying quirk. Whenever I try to access a folder in my mechanical drive it waits for a good 3-5 seconds before making a single chirp sound and promptly displaying the containing files. Sometimes it does not do this however, and displays all the files instantly as I open a folder (as it should) Analogy: It's almost as if the drive takes a nap at random times and I have to wait for it to get back to its post, but when it is awake and ready, its nice and fast.

This is reflected in videogames like Battlefield 3 where I receive serious frame rate drops whenever new map assets load into view. Or in work programs like 3ds max at seemingly random times.

A:Hard drive issue: long wait times to open folders

It's most likely the power management in Windows or perhaps in the drive itself putting it to sleep when not in use. You need to go to the Control Panel, then to the Power settings to disable it or lengthen the time before the drive is put to sleep by Windows.

On an external USB drive, WD Elements, 4TB some files obviously became corrupted after copying them on the same drive (the files are not copied from another drive, but may be such files can become corrupted also). There was not any error message displaying the copying to be failed. I copied the same archive (zip or rar) a few times to another folder and in the same folder on the same drive and some of the copies have a different check sum (the check sum also differs among the corrupted files, so corrupted files have different check sums, not the same wrong check sum) and WinRAR or other unzippers show an error message that a file or more are corrupted when I try to unzip some of the copies. The file size stayed the same of all of the copies.

When I plugged in the USB plug of that drive the first times the external drive was not shown, after a few times and waiting finally it was shown.

I recently got the hard drive in my Acer V3 laptop replaced since the first one had failed, and this new hard drive seems significantly slower than the old hard drive. The first hard drive was a Hitachi and was constantly getting anywhere from 20 to 60 seconds to boot to desktop, whereas this hard drive, a WDC WD7500BPVT, is taking anywhere from 60 to 90 seconds to boot to desktop and then another 30 seconds to finish booting everything. Now this hard drive was a clean reinstall of Windows 7, so I don't understand why it's taking so long to boot. I only have about 80 GB on this 750 GB hard drive, and I don't have many programs running at startup either. Why is the old Hitachi beating this new replacement hard drive? They're both 5400 RPM 750 GB hard drives, with a SATA speed of 3 GB.

A:Western Digital Hard Drive is Slow- 2 minute boot times

Not good. Very slow drive can mean a failing drive. And yes, I know it's "new" -- but I had three WD drives fail me last year and one was only a few months old. If you can, go to the WD website, download their drive health checking utility (sorry, forgot the name) and run it on the drive. It's not destructive but it will check the health of the drive. IF it's only a few weeks old, and it's already failing, you should be able to get a replacement through the warranty for free.

When I send large files 2mb or > the message remains in the outbox. It appears as if it is trying to send a large file, but it is sending the message several times and never moves to the sent folder. I need to shut down Outlook and then delete ffom the Outbox before it starts to send again.

Problem is there is no warning that this is happening until the recipient calls to ask what is up.

How can I get these files through with out multiple emails being sent? Is it an ISP problem, Outlook Problem? Microsoft and Cox point the finger at each other.

I run on XP and Outlook XP.

Please advise.

We have a SBS 2003 server and everyone here locally is fine but we do have one one remote user who is reporting the same issue. He seems to think it happens with large PDF files as attachments. As a temp fix he is confirming receipt of the email, then manually removing from the outbox or it will continue sending multiple copies.

[B[/B]Hi folks:

I am very very grateful to any forthcoming help.

I got a new computer built in the summer of 2008, and ever since then intermittently (and this is the exact way it happens every time), I will play a video file and inside the movie player will turn into a rainbow like grid. Then my mouse will turn into two arrows, and then I know I have some 15 seconds to reboot, or the computer will go to its blue screen; it's the same pattern every time. This is starting to bug me. This has never happened without somehow instigating video files: period.

I have some logs I can share from Window 7's "problem details"
If perhaps this issue needs to be placed in a different forum, or I need to go to a different website altogether, please let me know and I will gladly do so.

Thanks again!

In simple terms, I have been getting the kernel stack inpage error for about a month now - a couple times twice a day, more typically every 3-5 days. Both of my hard drives (C for boot and programs; D for data) have been imaged in the past 30 days without error or incident. Avast! sweeps the computer each night and there are no viruses. I run most of the free malware scans on the computer, and no spyware is found (and I'm a cautious user - it woudl be very hard for me to put malware on the computer, even by accident).

The computer was built from newly-purchased parts in March 2006 and runs Windows XP SP 3. It gets all the Windows updates as they're pushed to users.

I have attached the most recent BSOD dump file. And I ran chkdsk /f /r tonight on the C drive and this is the result I got:

A:BSOD - kernel stack inpage error - maybe a couple times a week, hard to nail down

Your error code is 0x00000077: KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR
A page of kernel data requested from the pagefile could not be found or read into memory. This message also can indicate disk hardware failure, disk data corruption, or possible virus infection.

The cited probable cause of your system crashes is memory corruption so the first step you need to take is to run memtest on your RAM.

See the link below and follow the instructions. There is a newer version than what is listed; use the newer. If you need to see what the Memtest screen looks like go to reply #21. The third screen is the Memtest screen.

Step1 - Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. The only exception is if you start getting errors before 7 Passes then you can skip to Step 2.

There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

Step 2 ? Because of errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don?t need to run the test any further on that stick.

Hi... I was wondering if anyone else is having same problem as me when trying to install the 32-bit RC. I have created a 50 gigs logical partition on my hard drive to install windows 7 on (i'm using Vista Home Premium on my Dell laptop). on installation screen i select the drive for the new installation and so it goes to the next screen where it shows a list of bunch of stuff that it's supposed to do. The first one is "copying files" or something along those lines which gets checked and so it moves to the second thing that is i believe called unpacking the installation files (or something similar). My installation "freezes" there as it shows 0% for about an hour or two and then it errors and cancels the installation.
any help would be much appreciated.

Help,
My new Dell XPS 15 won't turn on.  Last week I had a similar situation, and I had to press the button several times once to get it to turn on with similar behavior.  Now it won't turn on at all.  I can get the LED lights to start blinking, always showing the same pattern - 4 white blinks, 2 amber blinks, and I can get this to turn off by holding the power button down.  Any ideas?  It is only a month old...

OK
So I had a failure of a 80 GB Seagate hard drive, and I used RecoverMyFiles to salvage what I could from it, to a different hard drive. Before I used RecMyFiles reloaded WinXP Pro on a 3rd hard drive and removed the original WinXP/System hard drive, just so I could start with a fresh WinXP install. Many of the files are viewable as previews in RecMyFiles, but after they are recovered they won't open .... anywhere. Not Microsoft Image and Fax viewer, not Paint, haven't tried anything else yet..... Some of the previews show corrupted pictures with smudges or artifacts, so I know some of them are completely shot, but what about the rest?
Does anybody have any ideas? (Besides "Hey DumbA$$, you should have backed up your files!" I know, I know.)

A:recovered files from hard drive, can't open JPG files

are you not able to just view these files directly off your old drive? if you can view them in an editor then you could copy it to a new editor window and then save the file to your healthy harddrive > not sure what else you can do it sounds like its missing little bytes on the image which curupts it when copying over. can't think of any other advice.

Hello,
New member here and thanks in advance for looking.

I have a home built w7 Home Premium box we use almost exclusively for Windows Media Center. I started getting bsod's about a month ago and before that got distorted *pinkish* video on restart or bootup at times.

Tried using msconfig and changed settings and thought I had it but it resumed the pink screens (sometimes garbled colors i.e. squares and other shapes) so I bought a new video PCIe card, an XFX R6700. Thought this had it but it resumed the bsod's and sometimes graphic issues.

Saved our pics and such and did a clean install.
Worked fine for a couple days then back to the bsod's and pink graphics.

Having a hard time getting the crash files together for upload, new guy here so hopefully I'll get it figured out and add it. The directory created by SF_Diag is 34.1mb large and when I go to U/L size limits say nope. Pointers here maybe.

Thanks,

This is my custom build computer of 4 - 5 years. The past year or so i keep getting random BSOD. There are times right after i do a windows update, the very next day my computer will crash. I am running the latest nvidia drivers, and also run windows update. Some times the error says Memory Management, or ntfs.sys, fltmgr.sys. I did a memory test and it passes. I also tested hdd for errors. I really can not take getting all of these BSOD. Right now, it is happening about 3 times per week. At times i am using my computer and other times it is at night when it is locked. I have not added anything to my computer since it was born 4 - 5 years ago. I also do not overclock or mod anything.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hey guys! So, I wanted to disconnect 7 of my server's HDDs and leave one connected. I pulled the power and SATA cables, then turned it back on and put the boot CD I wanted to use in. Straight away, I noticed the strange behaviour, and I got no picture.

The computer resets 5 times (I can tell from the sound the CD Drive makes each time the computer resets), then it completely turns itself off. Fans and drives spin down. About a second or two later, it turns itself on again and repeats the process.

I knew disconnecting the drives wouldn't effect the BIOS like this, but I tried connecting all the drives back up so the machine was as it was before anyway. Same problem.

It seems that in the simple process I have bust something, but what could it be? With no BIOS or way to boot into a live CD, I can't tell what's broken. I tried googling my only evidence (the restarting), but found nothing.

Update: It looks like it was the RAM. I've never bust RAM before, but there's a first time for everything! I'll let you know if I get everything working okay again. At the moment, I'm in the BIOS. So it's looking fixed....
 

A:Solved: Computer soft resets 5 times then hard resets (+repeat)?

Jesus H. C. Christ.

So I tested both RAM sticks to see which one was busted. I put the first one in, and it booted.

I put the second one in, and it booted. WTF.

My new theory? Somehow the RAM had come loose, and I gave it that extra knock out of place when I fiddled with the HDDs. Looks like all they needed was a nudge back in place.

At least, let's hope that's the case, and not that the RAMs working now, but will crash the system when it feels like it!

I have been getting BSOD's for the last week or so. I can't read the entire screen in time when it happens but I do catch something about a hardware issue. This has happened several times while playing video games, but others when surfing the web, or just doing some typing. I've checked all of the components and they seem to be functional to the best of my knowledge.

I was getting random lock ups as well, where the entire system would freeze up, I would lose control of everything. This happened a few times when watching movies or games, and the sound would continue on as if there was nothing wrong while everything else froze and would not respond. I reinstalled windows and none of these lock ups have happened since, and I went 2 days without the BSOD but it has come back today.

The computer is as follows with a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS

Intel 980 Extreme 6 core CPU
12 GB DDR3 Ram
2 64GB Kingston SSD

While I am by no means a computer guru or expert, I've tested everything I could and found no viruses or lack of important drivers that could cause this. I also stress tested my GPU and CPU to make sure they were not overheating, though I didnt think they were.

Hey guys, I was working with my grandfathers computer. The computer would not boot, it kept getting the BSOD with "Unmountable Boot Volume" At the top. Annoyed, I decided I was going to just back up whatever files were on it (Just his favorites, he has absolutely no documents or anything else)..by plugging his HD into my home PC as a slave and copying them to my flashdrive. Then I would reinstall XP Home on his Desktop, and use the flashdrive to put back his files...Sounds easy enough right? NO!!!!.....Problem is, his user account on the computer (Ralph), was Password Protected so now when I try to access any of his files (using Windows 7) I get a message saying Access Is Denied. How do I get around this. It is not possible to boot his old computer to take off the password. Are his files recoverable?
Thanks for any help!

A:Recovering hard drive files from unbootable, password protected hard drive?

You don't have to do all that to overcome an unmountable boot volume error...try running chkdsk /r command on the drive.

So, at that time i had a 8800GTX 1.5 gig video card in it. So, i spent the money and went to a Geforce 560 GTX 2 gig, eventhough i had stressed tested the 8800. Ok so a week or so went by all good then it started up again. Only has it locked up once while not gaming. Always locks on WOT(world of tanks unless i use the older 275 nvidia driver) DIdnt use to lock up with Diablo III, TSW, SWTOR, SCII.

That error sometimes refers to a read write problem. That could be caused by a controller, too little ram, or a busy cpu.

How bis are the copies?

What does it say in event viewer about it?

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Go to the windows log>application tab.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

Let us know if you need help with any of this.

I still have all the data on the first hard drive but I can't transfer it onto the new one without getting what I believe is a virus. I have scanned the disk with nortons but no viruses are found. Anyone know how I might save my old files without the problem/virus before reformatting, your help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:need files off old hard drive

Use another virus scanner. Try the free online scan from www.trendmicro.com.

Furthermore, it is not possible to "get" a virus just by copying files. It is opening files that gives you virii. What data do you need from the old drive? There are no viruses in mp3s or movie files or any images.

I guess I should start at the beginning. Right before christmas my second hard-drive failed and caused my computer to not boot. I purchased a new hard drive and was able to boot up windows xp and get the computer running again. As I use the second hard drive for storage only, I began moving my files over again including pics, movies and music. After getting the pics, movie and a portion of the music, my primary drive failed. I wasn't able to get it back up and resorted to purchasing a new primary drive. I took the secondary drive into a computer shop and they were able to verify that there was data on the drive.
After christmas I installed Vista home prem 32bit on the primary drive and got the computer back up. When I connected the secondary drive, the computer downloaded the driver for it. It is recognised in device manager but not in the computer with a drive number. I am able to find it in disk management and it states that it is invalid. When I right click it, it gives me the option of converting it to a basic disc. When I go further it states that it will erase the data. My problem is that I want the data. The drive is a WD 320gb sata.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+
2.00 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT
WD 160GB Hard Drive
WD 320GB Hard Drive
Windows Vista Home Premium
Any ideas on getting the computer to recognise and allow access to the data?
 

A:Getting files from hard drive

Thats right, if you convert it or re-partition/format it you will lose your data or make the situation worse. You probably want to try some data recovery software or have the shop not just verify the data is there but the retrieve it for you. See here for a list of recovery software: http://forums.techguy.org/6439550-post2.html

The lesson here should be to have a backup of your data, a single copy of any data is a disaster waiting to happen.

A very basic, but puzzling question for me! I would like to keep hundreds of Word/Excel/Pub files/folders on my new Drive F instead of old standby C. How can I make Office programs always look to the new location instead of C drive, and further, how can I always send newly created files/folders to that same place.
 

A:files onto another hard drive

In each Office application such as Word:
Tools
Options
File Locations
Documents - Modify

Then just point the location to wherever you want.

In Excel its similar

Tools
Options
General

Set the Default File Location.

We recently had some massive problems with one of our computers, and in the process of repairing it ended up installing a new hard drive to replace the old one. The new hard drive is working fine, I was just wondering how or if I can access the old hard drive to get some files off of it. Will there be a problem since both hard drives have a working copy of windows XP on them? Any suggestions?

Since I don't know, I'll assume both are regular IDE harddrives. If that is the case, the IDE data cable which you used to connect your new drive should have another plug/connector on it which you can plug into your old harddrive. You would have to set the jumpers to SLAVE on the old harddrive and MASTER on the new one... I believe CABLE SELECT on both would also work fine...of course you would need to hook up the power cable to it as well.

When booting up, enter the BIOS setup to make sure both drives are detected, and if they are go to the BOOT tab and make sure that the new harddrive is selected somewhere in the sequence, not the old one.

Should be that simple. If your drives don't get detected ... try changing the DETECTION method to NORMAL if it was on QUICK in the IDE CONFIGURATION...

Since both drives have Windows installed ... you may for whatever reason get an option which Windows you want to start, choose the new one .. if they are both the same ... just try one, if it's not the one you want, reb... Read more

I just installed a second hard drive (for storage only). I am attempting to partition the drive, but it appears there are files on the drive already. These files are ones that appear to already be on the primary (master) driver. My question is how did they already get onto the new drive, and is it ok to go ahead and partition it even though the partitioning will delete these files

thanks

I recently had to repair my computer and just about every component was upgraded: CPU, GPU, Mobo, RAM, Hard Drive, and PSU. I have my old hard drive with not one but TWO copies of XP on there; one a fresh install and the original (no service packs) where all of my personal documents and files are.

Currently, I'm installing XP SP2 on my new, blank hard drive. Is it still possible to use the old HD as an external HD and just pull things from it or will that be a problem with the OSs on there?
 

A:Getting Files off another Hard Drive with XP

It shouldn't be problem, you should be able to use it as an external drive or as a secondary internal drive.

I recently have had some issues with viruses. I have ran many spyware, adware, malware, and virus scans and have removed all known threats. My computer is back to working order however my hard drive will not show its files when I try to access them. It is like they have disappeared. Obviously I know that hasn't happened but I can not access them. I have tried Registry cleaners and my computer will not allow me to perform a system restore. I can not defrag my computer because it says I only have 6% free space. How can I fix this so when I click on my C: drive from my computer it will reveal all the files that I know are actually there? Someone said it might be an HKEY virus. I do not know what to do but this is my work computer so any help would be greatly appreciated. Any suggestions please send to [email protected] or answer on this site. Thank you.

So my aunt called me today and said she had a problem with her computer, i had fixed some little things in the past for them(viruses) but i this one is over my head so i turn to you all!

They have a fairly new Acer desktop running windows 7.

When I turn it on windows starts fine but no programs show on the desktop or start menu. I originaly thought everything was gone but all of the virus protection loaded and seems to run fine, and I can run the programs that appear in the notifactation toolbar. When looking at C: it is empty, no folders, nothing! In the add/remove programs it shows everything is still installed. So i am making the assumption that all of the files and programs are still on the hard drive and intact. So at this point i am trying to figure out if this is a hard drive issue or most likely a windows problem.

Any ideas? Im a lil lost...

A:No files on hard drive

I have a post about the exact same issue.
Have tried to take ownership and All Rights & Privliages but still no files show.
I know they are there because they scroll on by while taking ownership and the computer boots up and runs fine.
Just cannot browse the directort structure.

hello ,the usb device would be the best option ,one would assume if you created the files you must know where you stored the files ,but I understand ,you would first look in the documents folder ,if not ,depending on the version of MS office you used as to what file type they are save in ,any way newer office used docx for word ,then search the drive for them using the *.docx
different office file extentions .

I was having problems with my Desktop so i called HP and they said my motherboard/graphics driver went bad. When i turn the computer on the screen doesnt come on, and if it does come on it soon freezes or shuts off.

Anyway, I never made a back-up of my files and the people at HP said everything would be erased if i sent the computer to them. So my question to you guys is how can i get to the files from the HardDrive to either put on a CD or send to my email?

I have a windows 7 desktop and my cousins also have a windows 7 desktop although they are not the exact same model. Im just saying this incase its possible to tempararily move my HardDrive from my computer to another similar computer.
 

A:How do get files from Hard Drive?

Welcome to TSG.

Assuming they both use the same connectors I.E SATA you could plug it into another computer easily but you have to make usre that their computer will still boot off there HDD so you dont want to take out their HDD, also make sure you use a different sata cable because if you plug it into the same lpug theirs was in it will try boot into your HDD. Make sure if you do put ur HDD in their computer that you also plug the power from the PSU into the HDD aswell.

my wife broke our laptop, i had all of my music on that hard drive and hadnt yet backed it up. the hard drive is still good, so i bought an external hard drive enclosure and put the old hard drive in it. i hooked it up, but am not able to get to any of my files off of it. computer recognizes it is there, shows folders, but wont/cant read files. wont open itunes or any other programs i had on it.
the old drive was in windows vista, new computer is windows 7. does that matter?
what do i need to do?
thanks in advance

You can't run programs from the drive. You can only copy off data.

You can try taking ownership of the drive / folders / files.

Really only a trivial question. I'm in the process of cleaning up my hard drive in preparation for a possible reformat (hopefully that won't be needed though) Anyway, while doing a scan to find and destroy a problem I am having I discovered that I have around 185000 files to scan The last scan I did stalled after 8 hours and just short of all files. So I have been uninstalling programs that are no longer in use , transferring photos to disk and generally cleaning things out to cut down the number before I retry the scan. I was curious to see roughly how many files I have managed to get rid of, but I'm not sure how to work out how many are still there besides right clicking every folder and adding up the totals or doing another scan and seeing how many it finds this time.
Can someone enlighten me?

A:How Many Files On The Hard Drive

FWIW: I did a complete AV scan of this system yesterday...over 750,000 files. The scan took (I think) a couple of hours, as I continued to work on the system.

Scanning less than 25% of my number...should never take 8 hours or anything close to that.

I guesss that I should backtrack...what do you mean by "scan", what program/function were you using? If you mean that you ran chkdsk...I suspect that you have hard drive situations needing attention.

Hey there,

I was looking for opinions based on two different drives and which one would be better used for installing an OS (Windows 8) on and run programs, and which one should be used for file storage.

Here are the two drives in question:

Western Digital Red


3TB storage
SATA3 (6gb/s transfer)
64mb cache
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008JJLW4M/ref=pe_385040_30332190_pe_175190_21431760_M3T1_ST1_dp_1
VS.

Samsung EcoGreen

2TB storage
SATA (3gb/s transfer)
32mb cache
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152245 (I know this one says out of stock but the drive was received a while ago)

 

A:Solved: Hard drive for OS vs Hard drive for files

Regardless of what hdd you use for storage, your OS and programs should be on an SSD - boot and response times much faster.

Booting with an SSD will get you up in 30 - 60 secs.

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-Series-2-5-Inch-MZ-7PD256BW/dp/B009NB8WRU

I have the 128gb version - more than sufficient.

I would also go with the first one for storage - faster than 2nd one.

I want to change my set up so that I can run 2 windows os's 32bit & 64bit on seperate hard drives whilst using a third hdd for program files. note: I have never run a 64bit setup so I am not to sure

hdd0 - 32bit
hdd1 - 64bit
hdd2 - Music, Videos & Games and other Programs

The intention is to install the game/program on to hdd2 and be able to run it from both hdd0 and hdd1 (if the program is compatible with both that is).

Can anyone give me advice on whether this is possible and the potential complications/pitfalls that I might encounter?
