Popups in lower left and lower right corners

Q: Popups in lower left and lower right corners

A game i was playing's website got infected with some type of malware, and ever since that happened and i was on it, I've been getting popup ads in the lower left and the lower right corners of my screen, no sound or anything. Occasionally i get redirects as well. I ran a malwarebytes quick and full scan and got nothing, a Microsoft security essentials scan and got nothing, and a adwcleaner scan and got nothing. I saw some other people had this problem, even on this website but they used combofix, which i'm not suppose to use unless told to. So yeah, hope you guys can help :3. 'Quick edit, the ads were from ad.yieldmanager, and ad.xtendmedia, if it matters.

I've been having popups in the lower left and right of my pc.  I ran malwarebytes and the popups still persist.  I thought I needed to remove the 5 things that it quaranitned so I did as was still getting these things.  Now the internet explorer screens look different.  mostly white.  It is hiding areas that can be clicked but I knwo they are there because the pointer goes from an arrow to the hand when I acroll over.  the worst thing is that the popups are still there.  Not sure where to go or what to do. Your site helped me on another issue I had in the past.  Oh I tried system restore and it didnt help the screen..I think the only system restore point was after all the above.

Hello,
I have been having pop up problems in both Google chrome and ie7 for the past couple of weeks and cannot seem to get rid of them.  I run avast on my computer and a full scan does not find anything, I also was told to try registry mechanic and while that seemed to find a lot of problems, it did not solve the pop up issue.
 
This is my first time using these forums and unfortunately I am not all that computer savy so if you could gently walk me through a fix I would greatly appreciate it .  
 
I read through the preparation guide and ran the DDS.  Hopefully this is what I was suppose to copy and paste.  
Thank you so much for your time!

i've been afflicted with a pop up appearing on either the lower left or right corner (it was happening on both corners...lucky me!) of my browser (ie8 and google chrome). i'm running win7, 64bit. what i've done so far after reading threads with similar issues is:

1) have run malware bytes (found nothing);
2) ran superantispyware and deleted what was found (found 173 ad tracking cookies);
3) ran rogue killer and fixed hosts;
4) rebooted after any process that has required it.

i use ESET smart security (scan found no threats).

after doing the above, i still have some occurance of the pop up, but it is happening less than before i ran the above. any assistance to get rid of the bug i missed would be greatly appreciate...tia.

Hi!

I keep getting ads in the lower corners of all of my browsers (the ones in Firefox get blocked by Adblock but are visible when I disable it), mostly in the shape of iPhones but regular ads and sometimes videos also appear. At times I also get redirected to other pages when I click any link. I am currently running Windows 7 64 Bit, and I have tried different Spyware software without success.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,
 
I'm new to the forum, but have been a reader for a while.  From what I see, I'm one of many that is encountering pop-up ads in the lower corners of my browsers (Chitka/Recommended for You/Advertise) etc. on a Windows 7 machine.
 
I've tried standard malware fixes like AVG, Malwarebytes, etc, as often recommended by professionals, but the pop-ups continue even after these applications have been run.  The pop-ups occur across all browsers -- Firefox, IE, Chrome. 
 
From what I've read, the next step is to go to the professionals here for further help.
 
Any suggestions on getting rid of these pop-ups would be greatly appreciated.   These things are driving me crazy.
 
Thanks in advance.

Hi and thanks in advance for any assistance.

I'm running windows 7 (64bit) and when using Internet explorer, popups keep popping up in the lower corners of the page and every so often I get redirected to another ad page. I've tried several fixes and none have worked (AVG, Malwarebytes, Spybot seek and destroy and Housecall).

Looking to get rid of this stuff, the ad content is getting worse! It's everything from video, to cell phone shaped ads to fake download prompts.

I did open firefox and got the same popups.

Thanks,

Hello everyone!

This is the first time I've contracted spyware/adware/malware and was unable to fix it on my own. I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on the issue!

Recently, I've had popups appear in the bottom left and right portion of the screen. They don't seem to show up on the Google Home Page/Search page, but they will show up on other sites, sometimes using the data I've searched for. My computer now runs much slower than it should, and I've tried a whole litany of removal programs (Malwarebytes, Spybot, SuperAntiSpyware, Adware, etc.), and none detect anything. Even trying to run it in safe mode, the spyware still pops up online.

So, I'm really at a loss. If someone can shed some light on this, I'd be extremely grateful. Let me know if further information is needed. Thank you!

Hi,

when Win8 boots up to Start menu I position mouse cursor to lower-left corner. But the popup icon for switching to desktop does not show anymore. I have to right-click and choose Desktop. I have Win8 about a week, and I'm not sure what I changed so that the popup icon does not show anymore... Any help would be appreciated

A:Lower left popup icon

Hello Morte, and welcome to Eight Forums.

This would be normal when Windows 8 is first started up since nothing (including the desktop) has been run yet. The pop-up is part of the Switcher that let's you switch between opened apps. Since the Desktop is considered an app, it doesn't show up in the Switcher until after the Desktop has been opened for the first time.

If you like, I find using the method in the tutorial below helps to make it easier to get to the desktop.

well, recently i got the alienGUIse thingy because i liked the themes, so i hated the windows 7 theme therefore i went ahead and used the vista theme, that didnt work out too well and since i didnt know how to reset the "theme" to default, i clicked an option to resort to a vista looking theme, which looked pretty similar to windows 7. then, i attempted to remove Stardock and the rest of all that by going into program files and clicking on Uninstall.exe. it later popped up saying it wasint installed right, i just closed that seeing as how a bunch of stuff was deleted. i restarted and deleted the file off of programfiles and i immediately saw that all my shortcuts on desktop had the Installed_programs icon on the lower left hand corner. i later went to deocuments and i saw that there were a bunch od desktop.ini files everywhere, inwhich i proceeded to delete them but curious me, i read one and it headead towards shell32.dll and imageres(32?).dll, in those dll's i found that some of the alienware theme icons were located there, and soon i started seeing folders with those icons. Later, i went to regedit and deleted all the files i found that had stardock and i went to starup repair and nothing changed. oh and some files have the admin needed shield for no reason also.

Hello and welcome,
 
In addition to trying different drivers have you tried adjusting the clickpad settings?
 
IIRC there are some options.  Probably mouse properties -> UltraNav tab or similar.

The Start button in lower-left corner of screen/desktop is not responding to left click.

A:Start button lower left corner of screen

Assuming RIGHT click at Start button still works ?..................

Run a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.

Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
sfc /scannow

> press Enter.
It will take quite sometime.
When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
1. No integrity violation.
2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
If the report is #3, use this method................
In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

> press Enter.
Again it will take some time.
When finished, it will give you a report.

I just bought an Envy m7-n109dx and fresh out of the box the touchpad seems to be depressed on the lower left. I would imagine this is supposed to be flush with the rest of the laptop? Can anyone please confirm this? I've already returned it once for this issue. They just swapped it out. Needing to know if I got another bad one or this is normal on this model. Thanks in advance!

A:Is touchpad supposed to be lower on bottom left? Not flush.

Hey @Wej1,My laptop has that same depression in the bottom left. Not sure if it's meant to be there for anything special, or if it's just part of the design however, you're not the only one as several of the laptops we have here also have a depression on the lower left of the touchpad. I am unsure why this is, but it seems to be consistent with most of them. Please keep me posted.  You can always say thanks by hitting the Thumbs Up button below!Cheers.

Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

Not sure why your score would change, it should stay the same no matter what version of windows you have installed.

It will not affect performance, it`s just a number.

The best way to reduce CPU utilization is identify the most resource-intensive programs. Get rid of anything you don't use. Security programs are usually pretty high up there. I recommend using Microsoft Security Essentials, as it is pretty lightweight.

if you have any tips on how to lower Memory use i would love to know.

A:How do i lower my memory

Hello hariza,

It sounds like you may have a few programs running in the background. There is a way to check that so what were going to do is:

Start search > type msconfig > hit enter > accept the UAC prompt > browse to the 'startup' tab and post back what runs at start-up please

More than likely there is some programs that don't need to run at start-up -- not only will this improve boot times, it will also lower memory consumption at idle.

I'm using a pair of ear buds and VLC media player to play my music, and both are set to 1%, but the music is still much too loud. When I set both to max, I can literally use my ear buds as an external speaker. I would like some sort of way to decrease my audio output by like 99%, because it's just about 100 times too loud.

A:How to lower the audio below 1, but above 0

You cant. Simple.
try making windows default volume to 1% and then vlc volume to 1% too, see what happens

I've been looking at RAM and am unsure which would be better:

1. Buying 3GB of PC3200 RAM with a CAS Latency of 3.0
or
2. Buying 2GB of PC3200 RAM with a CAS Latency of 2.0

I've been looking at RAM on Newegg and found 1GB sticks with 3.0 latency to be around $80, where as the 2GBs of 2.0 (split into 1GB sticks) is $240 which led me to think that I could get more RAM for the same price with a higher CAS latency.

What would be more important and why?

Thanks heaps in advance.

*BTW, the RAM is going to be used in extensivly in Photoshop and other Adobe products that seem to be rather RAM hungry, in my experience. (And maybe some gaming, too.) That may be something to consider as well when you answer.

I am now on Windows 7 Build 7201 and while I've been updating it so it fits what I want such and programs and all that I realised I had to update Realtek. Well, I did and I got the version that works for Windows 7 and its basically the same as I had for Vista really. What I'm actually confused about my speakers don't max out to what they used to do on Vista, I know my speakers aren't damaged in anyway so I'm obviously blaming either the drivers or the OS. I max everything out as possible to see how loud it goes compared to what it did on Vista and its not exactly as loud. Can anyone tell me why its like this and if there's a solution around this.

Thank you for any help.

A:Sound lower than what it used to be

What other things have you tried? Have you tried hitting up the sound icon in the control panel and checking out the settings? Do you have your microphone connected and is it running as well at the same time you are trying to say listen to music because it could be that if your mic is one for some reason, there is a setting in windows that will lower the audio volume to allow for clearer conversations through the microphone.

Is there a realtek audio control panel? Have you tried playing around with the settings in there? Let me know if that idd not help at all and I will try again

Hi,

today I thought that I haven't updated my WEI some time and ran the assessment. Now all of a sudden my processor's rating dropped from 7.7 to 7.6.
Is that normal that it drops for some strange reason or what might be causing this?

Thanks!

A:CPU WEI rating getting lower?

I would not worry about it. That is within the rounding accuracy. And the WEI does not mean much anyhow. It is just a number.

I recently up-graded my cpu from a Q8200 to a Q9400, before the up-grade my WEI for the CPU was 7.3 but with the new Q9400 im getting 7.1, yes it?s a lower number.

After looking around at other peoples scores It seems that my old Q8200 was a fast one and my new Q9400 is a slow one.

Would anyone like to comment.

Why would a chip running 300mhz faster and with more cache give a lower WEI reading?

A:Faster CPU = Lower WEI

It could very well be the processor itself. Try as they might to be consistent, there is always going to be variance in processors of the same model, even if we were to use two processors from the same production run. It's plausible that you indeed had a Q8200 that could handle more calculations per second than your current Q9400. Regardless, I wouldn't read too much into the WEI scores, as they are not a reliable indicator of real world performance.

Hi everyone, I've just bought a 19'' TFT/LCD monitor for my Pc. It has the resolution of 1280 x 1024. This is my first Lcd and I didn't pay much attention on the fact that the resolution is too high. So after I changed the display to fit the new monitor, everything on the screen is now painfully small. If I adjust the resolution lower than 1280 x 1024, the text would appear not as smooth as on my old CRT. Is there anyway I can make the screen look bigger without that problem because I miss those big fat 800 x 600 texts and pictures.

I posted this on a Counter Strike board but since it's happening in other games as well I figured it is most likely a general hardware issue.

My specs are:
AMD Athlon XP 2500+
512MB RAM
Geforce 6600GT

I used to have a Geforce 4 MX440 until about a month ago, when I got a 6600GT. My FPS was awesome for about two weeks, pretty much 100 constant. I've been having mouse/keyboard lag in CS since I got the card and started fixing it by setting hl.exe priority to low (A known issue in Counter Strike and the most common workaround for it). A few nights ago I started noticing lower FPS, to the point where now I get 50 in a big area and I don't even get 100 when I'm staring at the floor. Changing the CPU priority back to normal hasn't fixed this.

Any ideas about how this could have come about or how to fix it?

Hello,

I've noticed a decreased performance of my hdd (seagate barracuda 7200.11 500GB Firmware SD1A) in windows 7, extracting and copying files takes longer than in vista. I'm assuming it is a win 7 /driver problem since yesterday it was running fine on vista. Also it is a lot quieter. I have installed the latest intel_inf without succes. The hdd is running in AHCI mode.

I purchased a new Toshiba laptop with Win 8.1. On my old XP Dell, I was able to copy a 699MB folder of music MP3 files to a CD to play in my car. I've done it many times, and have 8 folders on my computer that I frequently copy to CDs for that purpose. In the past, I've copied 700 MB of files to a CD without difficulty, so I learned to maximize the number of files by storing the data in groups of 699 MB to avoid overloading a disk.

I tried to copy those folders to a CD using the new Win 8.1 machine, and have discovered that the CD capacity is only about 696 MB. I'm using the same CDs, and attempting to copy the same files. The only difference is the operating system and the new hardware. When I contacted Toshiba, the tech said Windows 8.1 stores files differently on CDs and the capacity is about 2MB less than on older machines.

Can this possibly be true?!? Is this a Windows 8.1 problem, or a hardware problem? Do I need to use my older XP computer to maximize the number of files I can store on a CD? Can anyone explain what's happening? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
 

A:Lower CD Capacity on Win 8.1?

If you want to maximise your file storage I suggest you use your old computer however you could buy a bigger size disc and store the music from your new computer. Your choice!

on my old setup, which was really just the same comp, minus a vid card, stick of ram and a new PS, i had awesome framerates in Source based games, and I could run bf2142 on high. i had an xfx 7600gt 256 xxx then, with only 1gig of pc5400 ram. then i went out and bought an 8800 gts 320mb when they first came out, and another stick of ram... and of course, a new power supply... but thing is, I get WORSE fps in Source games now (ie. tf2, day of defeat source) and can't even play 2142 on medium! i've reformmated loads of times since the upgrade(not to fix it, just to clean er out now and then) and tried a hundred different drivers.

is it my cpu? maybe still the power supply isn't big enough? it's a 500w ps. certainly wouldn't hurt to upgrade it further, but, i don't want to go spend money if i don't have to.
 

A:upgrade but lower fps?

Check the amps available on the PSU for the 12v rail. You will need about 26A (check your card for exact aount), but a 500 should be big enough.
As you have reformatted, have you got the mobo chipset drivers and nvidia drivers for the 800 instaled? sounds like one of these is most likely the problem

I purchased an hp laptop and it shows the RAM as 4 GB SODIMM 1333 MHz.
The RAM specifications as given on the site are 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3.

Is the new RAM same as the previous in terms of specifications ?
I am not as good at computer hardware so I'm sorry if you feel the question is very childish.

I desperately need help.

I bought a HP netbook a few months ago. It has NO CD drive, and the place I bought it installed all the programs, including Windows XP as the operating system.

I?ve used it without any problems for the past few months, as it is not even six month old. I worked on stuff today, and then shut down the netbook to take a break. When I booted it back up, all of the icons were GONE and the lower nav bar GONE!

There was only the blue screen you get with windows XP, and the cursor. When I click the cursor right or left, nothing happens. I can only move the cursor around.

I really depend on this netbook to make money, and I don?t have any money to take it in for repairs. I'm completely broke.

Please, please help me. Thanks

So I'm having a problem. I'm using Google Chrome and esp. when I'm on FB playing games etc. it's very slow, loading takes a while when I move my cursor around it takes a while to actually get to the place where I moved it, and the game skips a lot, another problem that I'm having is when I'm browsing the internet, all of my tabs pop out and go into new windows..without me doing anything! this happens every time, all the time! and I keep getting pop ups from Chrome saying my flash player is unresponsive..
Also, when I go to Task Manager, and under processes.. I have like 10 "chrome.exe" ..is that normal?
I don't know why I have so many..every time I open Google Chrome and look into processes there's always about 10 of them..more or less. and I only have one Google Chrome opened.

I heard that if CPU usage is high..it can cause these problems, things not loading/are slow/and are skipping/crashing.. etc..but I don't know for sure that CPU is the problem..it's hard to tell but I am having a lot of similar issues.

Is there anything I can do?

I tried other browsers but IE crashes on me nonstop and FF doesn't load at all..when I'm on FB it takes half an hour to load a game...

So..everything seems to be running ok..my game anyway.

but still wondering about the 10 processes that Chrome has in task manager and..if there is a way to lower CPU possibly and how my tabs are always popping out of Chrome into new windows..
for now my game seems to be running smoothly..but will keep an eye on everything.

Hello,

My gaming laptop, yesterday (or two days ago), started having lower FPS rates. When I check FPS rates it is at 300, then drops to 200 in open areas, sometimes to 150, and occasionally it drops to 70 or 80 for a few seconds. When the drops happen I can see that something is wrong.

Before my games ran smoothly now you can feel that something is unnatural about them even though the games still run. I had an FPS issue before where my game was running at only 30 FPS through out and I solved it by realizing that my ac-adapter was set to minimum power usage. Now it is a different issue and I have no idea what is causing it. I went to Dell website and downloaded latest update for my graphics card but still no progress.

An error report from my computer gave me the following today. I cannot help but wonder that perhaps this is the issue behind the problem.

I have R7 260X 2GB OC from MSI and the card is old maybe 3 months or so. Now everything is fine with it but I noticed that my Mem. clock speed on GPU-Z is 1250MHz and core clock is 1050MHz while everywhere on the internet I see Mem. clock 1650Mhz and core clock 1150MHz. Just google it and you'll see that every 260x has higher clocks than mine. Since it's OC it should be even higher than stock what's up with this?
 

A:My GPU clocks are lower than others

Have you tried getting something like GPU Tweak(http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=9&m=ASUS+GPU+Tweak+for+Graphics+cards). Or using AMD overdrive to overclock it back to stock speeds. A reason that the GPU's "stock" speed is lower than others is because you CANNOT make a exact clone of a GPU/CPU from silicon there are a few variables that come in to play. And the card may underclock its self so that its "safe".
Hope this helps.

My headphones are mega loud for some reason. Right now 0 is the best volume setting lol. In XP there was a wave multiplier in the volume mixer that I used to fix that, but I don't see that in Vista. And it was annoying, because I had to change that every time I restarted. Is there a multiplier in some config file somewhere I can change to fix this permanently or something? Thanks

A:How can I lower the volume more?

Right-Click your task bar
Click Properties
Click "Notification Area" tab
Checkmark "Volume"
Click "OK" button

Your volume control should present itself as an icon next to the system clock

Clicking on it will present you with the master volume control, clicking on mixer will allow you to select the volume for individual applications

If it's still too loud you could go into the control panel and go to SOUND and tweak the settings there.

If all else fails they do sell some headphone with volume control built in and you can control it that way

A:lsass.exe (lower case L)

If it's "lsass.exe" with a lower case "L", then it is a virus in the Sasser family, most likely. You'll need to scan it with a good antivirus either by using a boot CD with an antivirus on it or take your drive out and hook it up as a secondary drive in another computer. That should get you back up and running. You may have to do a repair installation of Windows after you've scanned it.

BTW i did a search on this all of em just wanted pepl to run it higher not lower so its a different thing
 

A:how do i lower texture quality on GTA IV

Hi

You could have your game options on automatic detect, so the computer decides what graphics the game gets rather than you.

The other thing it could be is that the texture is dependant on the other options. I know that in Company of Heroes, certain settings can only be downgraded when other settings have been downgraded. If you try putting everything on low, then putting texture on low, then it should work.

I burn with DiscJuggler. It reports 30x-40x speeds, despite setting 4x everywhere in it. I'm using Sony blanks.. or could they be the conflict ?

My friend said to try Nero DiscSpeed.. to hopefully lower the drive's minimum write speed.. I set 4x here and there (been a while), but it did no difference.

Could this be somewhere I have to hunt down in the BIOS ?

My drive is a..

hp dvd-ram gh40l scsi cdrom device (Device Manager)

SuperMulti DVD Burner with LightScribe Technology drive (PC specs page)

Please assist

A:Lower CD-R write speed ?

I do a lot of Audio CD burning as I have a recording studio. I use 8X as my audio CD burn speed "standard". This allows compatibility with almost all audio CD players. I've been using the 8X for about 10 years and have burned hundreds of audio CD-R's and have never had a CD come back as "unplayable" or "skipping". I only use JVC-Taiyo Yuden "Professional" ink jet printable CD-R blanks, but the brand does not dictate the burn speed, its the drive.

The burn speeds are hardware dependent. e.g. most SATA CD/DVD burners will only go do wn to 16X (except one model LG CD/DVD burner). PATA (IDE) burners of recent production will go down to 8X for audio CD burning. Although there may be some software utility that will change/lower speeds, I havent found one. I have Nero and use Nero Burning ROM for all my CD Burning. I have a bank of 5 USB connected PATA burners that I use for my CD production.

With CD burning software, you must have a CD-R blank loaded in the drive BEFORE you attempt to burn, so you can set the burn speed. If you try to set the burn speed first, without a disc in the drive it will only default to its highest burn speed.

Other recording engineers, that I've talked to on recording forums agree on the 8X speed.

The only CD burner drives that I know that will burn at 4X are very old (obsolete/out of production) PATA (IDE) drives. The last one I had was one that came with a Windows 98 PC.

I have a 2 year License for Reason Core Security, and I have Adguard premium.
I want to run "one or the other", I am stingy with my resources as i play some highly resource intensive games so every little bit counts.
If anyone has tested the current versions of these two software solutions for system impact can you help me out with knowledge of which one is lower on resources ?
Thanks in advance for any help you are kind enough to offer.
If no one has tested these for resource usage or system impact could someone test them in the near future ? PeAcE

As of late, i am experiencing a considerable drop in performance when playing various games. I am using an Alienware M15x notebook with the following specs..

Win 7 Home Premium 64bit
Intel i5 540m 2.55 GHz
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730
6 GB DDR3 RAM
500GB SATAII 7,200RPM HD
I am not sure what caused the drop, but i have noticed that for the first 3-4 weeks with my laptop, i had a much higher FPS on higher setting, than the past 3-4 weeks.

WoW- Dropped from 60-70fps on high settings to 20-30 on medium
Starcraft 2- Dropped from 60fps on high to 20-25 on low and medium settings
Modern Warfare 2- Dropped from 65-70fps on high to 30fps on high

Systemrequirements lab shows max results under the recommended tab for all games still, but i'm not sure whats causing the recent drop. The only significant change that happened since i got my computer is i think a Windows update. Anyone have any idea on what to do?

When I try to use the lower case B it does not work, only if I use shift and upper case. It must not Be the keyboard or the upper case would not work. Short of reinstalling windows how do I fix it?? In case you are wondering, the word keyBoard I typed with a capital B and the spell checker changed it. I do not have a clue as how to fix this. TIA

A:Lost My Lower Case B

If it's only the one key, I'd still suspect the keyboard, whether it works with shift or not. Is it possible to try another to make sure?

I am having trouble with my sound. My left headphone works just fine, but my right headphone has a decreased volume that I can't seem to fix. I know there isn't a problem with the headphones themselves I've tried them with other devices and they work just fine. I have already followed all of the steps in the forum titled-- HP PCs - Resolving Headphones and Headset Problems (Windows 8) and I continue to have the same problems. I have also tried to solve problems with my USB and that hasn't worked either. Any help is appreciated!Thanks

As the title says, if you have more partitions, does that affect the performance of the computer/hard drive? Thanks in advance!

A:Do more partitions = lower performance?

No. The more partitions you have on an HDD, the less work the "head" has to do to find, move and write information. However, if you make an image backup to the same HDD to one of it's partitions (not advised) the writing process will be slower. Always install a second internal HDD in your Tower/Case. This makes creating an system backup a breeze. Windows 7 has it's own backup utility but there are many on the Internet.

Solid State Drives (SSD): You will not see any slowness in performance if you partition the SSD. There is no head or mechanical parts - just cells.

The lower case L on my computer has gone berserk. It will not function correctly in Windows. When struck nothing appears. However, if the caps lock key is activated and the shift key is held down, the lower case L works. The upper case L and all other keys work fine.

This is only true in Windows. Iím running Windows Pro 2000 and in the Windows login screen, lower case Ls can be typed in both the user name and the password fields. As soon as Windows comes up, it stops working.

I have tried three different keyboards, reloaded Windows 2000 and the keyboard software but the key still fails.

I would appreciate any help.

My computer:
--------------------------
AMD Athon Processor
AT/AT Compatible
256 MB RAM
--------------------------
The keyboard is a Microsoft Internet Pro PS2 (Brand New)
 

A:Lower case L does not type

You say that you have tried different keyboards, and that outside of windows the lower case L works, so the only thing that I could think of (and it's a long shot), is that when Windows has loaded (and any startup programs as well), a process or program has changed the mapping of the lower case L to perform some other function.
Have you tried booting into safe mode? This should stop any non-Windows programs from loading. Give this a try and see what happens. If the L works normally, then you need to see what programs are being loaded (in normal mode), and remove them one at a time (restarting and testing each time).

My computer runs on full hd (1920 X 1080) but when I play higher end games such as battlefied 3 it runs slightly slow so I tried decreasing the resolution and the result was that it moves smoothly but stutters ever 3 seconds which was even worst than not decreasing the resolution, what's causing this problem?

Hello, i noticed a strange behavoiur on my Elitebook Folio 1020 H9V72EA running Ubuntu 14.04.3 64 bit: The core-m processor wont maintain high frequencies during longtime high-load-scenarios (thats how it is supposed to work). But: - On battery power it constantly runs on approx. 1450 MHz- docked and on ac-power it drops down to approx.1250 MHz That does not seems to be right - anyone with windows having the same behaviour ? Kind regards, HPUser2k15  

A:Longtime CPU-Frequency lower when on AC

I do find it odd, that when you're on AC power the CPU frequencies  are actually lower when they should be higher. I will say, I have some experience with HP Core M products and I've found they throttle quite often, even when temps are good.  I think it's a power limiting issue or TDP issue. It seems to be more prevalent on HP products than other OEMs.  It's extremely noticable when doing something like gaming, where the GPU and CPU are being hit hard.
