I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I removed Simple pass and validity software, and I am still required to enter the master password that simplepass asked me to set up, I uninstalled all drivers, and software, and removed all remnants from registry, and I am still required to enter the password at login, i have done the netplwiz thing,  and bios says password is clear, so how do i remove this password requirement that i didnt have before i installed simplepass.

My fingerprint reader has crapped out.  I want to remove the driver and re-install it but I can't find a link to it and HP won't help me do it even though I paid for extended warrentee.  Anyone have a suggestion?

A:simple pass not working Windows 8.1

You should be able to use the W8.1 fingerprint driver from the dv6t-7300, and the simple pass software from the 15t-j100 This package contains the driver that enables the Validity Fingerprint Sensor in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. The fingerprint sensor scans fingerprints for use with biometric security applications. File name: sp58900.exe This package contains the HP SimplePass Identity Protection Software for the supported notebook models and operating systems. This software protects identity information and account access using the computer owner's fingerprint. File name: sp64339.exe

Hello everyone, Since long time back the SimplePass (finger print reader software) stopped picking up the passwords I am entering in browsers pages. It seems the extensions are not working anymore. The Windows log in is still functionig properly but not the in websites. I feel like I am having an important feature in my Notebook that is kept idle and not fully utilised.  I am running SimplePass ver. 5.4 and Windows 10 x64. Is there a way to make this software into functionagain ? If not, is there any other trusted software that can be used instead. Thank you all.

So one day I was using a laptop wirelessly when the internet just suddenly turned off. I checked my modem and it was working fine but when I checked my router, the lights were on but not blinking. it was just a steady light. when I checked for a wireless network the name of the network I usually use didnt show up.

I tried unplugging everything and plugging everything back in again and I tried pressing the reset button on the back of the router. Can anyone help?

Thanks so much

what devices do you have connected the router anything else wireless

does the PC work if you connect to the router by a cable ?
if not
try connecting directly to the modem and see if that works OK

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

Then run and install the program

Run the program

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

Okay, this is the weirdest problem I've ever hard with computers. Here's what happened:

1. I had a few years old Pentium D 2,8GHz processor running on Asus P5VDC-X mobo. PQI 566MHz DDR2 and GF 7600GS 256mb PCI-E, 350W power.
2. I updated the mobo to Asus P5L-MX to support faster PCI-E cards. Everything worked fine, despite the processor ran too hot (58C on high use)
3. Because of the overheating I replaced the thermal paste but it had no effect on the temperature.
4. I thought I used too much paste so I replaced the paste again.
---
5. Bang, no video when I turn on the computer. I tried taking off everything part by part but nothing worked. It didn't work even when I only had processor and used the integrated graphics port. Tried resetting the bios too.
6. Nothing worked so I put back the old P5VDC-X and it worked like charm.
7. I thought it was logical that the problem was caused because of the mobo so I bought a new one, Asrock G31M-S.
8. No video... Did the same steps to this one too. It also had integrated gfx but it didn't work either.
9. The old P5VDC-X still works.

So I have no idea what's causing the problem. Is it the CPU? Mobo? PSU? RAM? I have no speaker on my case so I can't hear any beeps, but it won't start loading the OS from the hardrive and my USB mouse won't turn on. Tried using a differen't monitor too.

The main point is why it stopped working suddenly on new mobo's but still works with the old P5VDC-X? A... Read more

Two new motherboards tells us you made the same simple install error in both of them.
Tell us more about power supply, memory, cable.
Did you make sure the memory was correct for both new boards, and what is the memory on the old board. Would also like to know the power supply and other hard ware.
What happens with the most basic, simple install. Does everything light up?

If you used the same hard drive with the same Windows install on the two motherboards, that is the problem. Windows has detected that you have changed the motherboard and will not operate unless you reinstall Windows on the drive on each new motherboard... One install for each motherboard.
My guess is that you will be fine if you change hard drives or do reinstalls or repair installs of the Windows on the new motherboard.

Simple Tech Duo Pro (500gb or 1tb) drive fails to be recongnised via USB port. Tried plugging into multiple pcs with the same outcome (it wants to format the drive).

It has (2) Western Digital 500 gb (sata) hard drives connected inside. When it is plugged in, the drive will continuously cycle on and off. When it does come on, Windows Vista and 7 both ask to format the drive. I noticed the drive started making a loud buzzing noise that was consitent for a couple of weeks.

Is it possible to recover the data on the drive? Or is there a way to fix this cycling problem?

I removed the (2) 500 Gb (sata) hard drives and plugged them into my frankinstien pc. The CMOS recognises both hard drives and it looks like they both have identical signatures. When I launch Windows 7 it sees the drive but wants to format. Also it only sees (1) 500 Gb drive and not both.

What are my options besides spending 200 to 1000 dollars on a data recovery service?

Thanks in advance! Jeremy

Not sure here what your problem is, but it definitely sounds
internal to the unit. Data however can be extracted at any
Staples for well under $100, and I would venture to say
Best Buy and local Tech shops off the service as well.

Staples would be my recommendation.

Hi,

I've been using the Microsoft Wireless Broadband router (MN-500) to connect to the internet. This afternoon, while I was away, the wireless connection was suddenly lost. The internet is fine, because when i plug my computer directly into the router (via ethernet), i am able to access the internet. However, the router does not seem to broadcast a wireless signal for the LAN.

I've reset the router, both manually and via the software and reconfigured the network. After this process, the Wireless Network sometimes appears momentarily in Windows...but the connection drops before it can connect.

All the lights on the router light up as normal and it indicates that both the wireless LAN and the WAN are working properly. I have no idea why I can't connect to the network wirelessly though...

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Hey guys,

So I put together a new PC running Windows 10 Pro around 3 months ago and everything was working perfect till 2 days ago when my mic suddenly stopped working. I use a Steelseries Siberia V2 headset and the headphones work fine, but the mic is not picking up any noise at all. I tried plugging in both the back and front ports and my realtek always detects that a mic has been plugged in, but it simply won't work. I thought maybe my mic got busted so I also tried using an A4 Tech headset that I had lying around in the office but it has the same issue, the mic won't work. I looked around online for possible solutions and tried the following with no luck:
Ensured the mic was set as the default device and that its volume settings were maxed out.Tried disabling all sound effects (noise suppression, acoustic echo cancellation etc).Uninstalled all audio drivers and reinstalled the latest realtek drivers on my motherboard's webpage: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1151 - GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) Uninstalled all audio drivers and reinstalled the latest realtek drivers on realtek's own webpage: RealtekUninstalled all audio drivers and let Windows auto-install drivers.I even uninstalled all realtek drivers and tried using the standard "high definition audio device drivers."

Good morning everyone, and a Merry Christmas!

I'm going to try to make this as brief as possible, while still including every detail I possibly can.

Today I received a few cool gadgets for Christmas that I wanted to install on my PC. I realized I was short on USB slots, so I tried to install a secondary set of USB slots. I plugged it in wrong twice in a row, due to me misreading my motherboard. After a few restarts, my computer wouldn't boot. I attempted to clear my CMOS, which didn't help. I then turned off my power supply's switch, then turned it back on. After I did this my PC booted, but I was fronted with a boot screen that said the CMOS settings were wrong. I was confused as to what this meant, and my options were F1 to Bios, or F2 to default settings and continue. After booting, my Razer Deathadder quit working. Now, at this point, I'm not sure why exactly I did this, but I reinstalled Windows. I am using Windows XP Pro -32 bit. After reinstalling all my drivers, I realized that NONE of my USB ports were working. My keyboard, mouse, webcam, nothing worked. I updated my Windows, BIOS, drivers, everything is new.

In the screen for Hardware, all my Root USB kits have exclamation points, and it says they aren't functioning properly. I have NO idea what the hell is going on, and if anyone has any ideas or comments, please please share them with me.

I'm thinking that when I reset the CMOS perhaps something malfunctioned on my mainboard a... Read more

So just to preface I'm completely new to these forums and I'm at best only an intermediate level in terms of being tech savvy so I'm hoping that someone here will be able to help.

I run Windows 7 64bit and my network adapter is a 'Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller"
Never had internet problems before last night
So last night the internet on my desktop stopped working while I was watching a youtube video. There were (to my knowledge) no software updates or anything else taking place. The internet just suddenly stopped. So naturally I went and turned my router on and off a few times and when I realized that didn't work I checked the internet on my laptop and found out that it was still working and figured the problem is obviously with my desktop.

So far I've tried,
1) opening cmd.exe and typing ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew
2) Disabling and re-enabling my network adapter
3) Downloading and installing the latest driver for my network adapter from the Realtek website.
4) Running the trouble shoot through windows. All this tells me is that "the default gateway is not available"
5) I ran a system restore to a point about a month ago and the problem was still there.
6) I ran my computer in safemode with the network enabled and the problem was still there.
7) The ethernet cable I'm using for my desktop is fine I tried it with my laptop and it worked and plugged in a usb wireless card to my desktop and the problem persisted (just without a wire)

I suspect your LAN card has fried. If you are able to, try running diagnostics on the device itself (there's probably an ability to do this from "Device Manager"). If you can't, then I don't know how you could test for it being dead other than if when you plug in an Ethernet cord the clear connector doesn't light up green (mine does on our Dell Dimension 3000 XP Desktop to communicate to me that it IS working, IS plugged in and IS receiving proper connection from and to the Modem/Router).

If yours does have an LED as described and it DOESN'T turn the clear plastic connector of the LAN cable green, then it's dead and there's no bringing it back.

And if/when you confirm it is fried, you need to replace it. They're generally inexpensive if you don't want it to be WiFi or anything other than your standard 802.11g 10/100/1000 Gigabit LAN. You can probably pick one up without the "bells and whistles" for $30 or less online these days. They work just as good as the $100 ones, just without some "extras".

The other thing to suspect would be your MOBO. Bridges/connections on them can and sometimes do fry out, effecting other components they distribute the power too. Hopefully that's not the problem because they're in the $100+ range to replace.
EDIT: The "Default Gateway" is obtained by your Modem/Router. The fact you are getting "not available" means that there is no communication between the computer and the Modem/Router. Since y... Read more

Then on the drive I see the green light flash about 6 times (scanning).
Then the orange light comes on and flashes fast continuously.
Nothing happens and the light keeps flashing and does not stop until i take the cd out.
The drives do not read the disc and in the explorer it shows the drives with no disc in them.

Hi, I'm sure this is not the most uncommon topic brought up on the sound and audio board but I checked and didn't see anything that sounded helpful - the audio on my laptop suddenly stopped working!

I was watching a youtube video with my headphones, all was going fine, I paused the video and walked away for a moment then came back and the sound no longer worked. I unplugged the headphones and still no. I tried restarting the computer and still no. I checked the device manager and it says my sound devices are working properly. Everything is unmuted.

I do recall this problem happening once of twice in the past and its always been when I had my headphones plugged in so I really think its got something to do with them or the jack. The problem always seemed to fix itself eventually and the sound would come back. I'd like to get this figured out and not have this problem anymore. Does anyone think this could be a hardware issue? My laptop is barely a year old. Its a Toshiba L655 running Windows 7.

Any tips or advice would be most appreciated. Thanks!

My desktop PC is connected by ethernet to my D-Link G604T and I give my paying lodgers free wireless acess on their laptops.

This arrangement has worked perfectly for three years.

Now, suddenly, I am connected to the Net but nobody can get connected from their laptops.

The ONLY thing that has changed recently is that I did a reformat on my PC. That's all I did, I didn't unplug anything, just the simple reformat one does by putting in the Windows disk. Can that have caused this?

I've restarted the D-Link, and tried unplugging it, to no avail. I'm not all that brilliant with computers so I am now at a dead end.

Hi guys, I know this is my first post so I'm sorry that it is to ask for help.

I own a set of Turtle Beach X11 headphones that I originally bought for use with my 360. However, I discovered I could use them for PC too so I now use them primarily for teamspeak and such. To start with I had no problem setting it up: Just plugged in the USB lead, mic lead into pink jack, audio into green jack and everything worked fine without the need for drivers or any set up.

Everything has worked fine for weeks but all of a sudden my microphone is no longer detected by my PC. The headset speakers work fine, I can hear other people but they cant hear me. The weird thing is I can hear myself speak through the speakers when i speak into the mic, so clearly it isnt a hardware issue but something else has changed by itself.

The only thing I did before the mic stopped working (Aside from use teamspeak like normal) was to install hamachi and to try and use the STEAM voice chat feature, out of curiosity. I first assumed that one of these had maybe interfered so I did a rollback but that didnt help.

I have tried all the basic stuff and am pretty sure my sound card drivers are up to date that I know of but any help would be very much appreciated.

P.S. I have an ASUS motherboard with a built in sound card. Here is a dxdiag just in case it helps:
UPDATE:

I bought a cheap plug and play mic that just plugs into the mic jack to check if a new one would work. Unfortunately it doesnt, same... Read more

l was typing a document yesterday and then suddenly the enter key stopped working closely followed by the "t, i, o, g, :, and UP keys.

Any idea what has caused this and how I can fix it? [trying to avoid buying a new keyboard... laptop user... sony vaio - vgn/c1z.]

Thanks.
 

A:Certain keys suddenly stopped working

Boot into safe mode or command prompt.

See if keyboard works. Or even in BIOS and see if the UP key works. Make sure its not a software issue (virus). if those keys still don't work... you have 2 choices:

1 - Buy a USB keyboard for $10~25 (cheap and easy)
2 - Order a new keyboard from SONY and install it yourself of pay a tech. Most likely will require taking apart the notebook.

A friend of mine is using #1.

The DVD player suddenly will not read discs.

I was just browsing the net when all of a sudden internet lost connection.
I am using Windows 7 64-bit Home Edition
I tried these solutions, but didn't work:
---reboot pc
---turn off the modem, wait 10 minutes and turn it back on
---ipconfig /release, /renew in admin mode
---built-in Windows troubleshooting
---updated drivers
---use different ethernet cables

I contacted a floormate (I'm in college) yet his wired internet works. I have tried wireless. It worked.
I have been using the connection for months and this is the first time it has happened.

Earlier today I had my laptop connected to some speakers with a male to male jack, and everything was going fine. I unplugged that cable (no music was playing at this point, so I don't know if the problem started then or not) and put it into sleep mode. Later I woke it back up, and suddenly there no was sound. I checked the Device Manager, and the sound systems supposed are working properly, nothing's muted. I plugged a pair of headphones in, adjusted the system volume and could only hear the faintest sound when I maxed it out. Also, the little bubble, "You have plugged a device into the audio output jack" didn't pop up when I put the headphones in or out.

Actually, I just double checked the headphones, and they seem to be working decently. They are some old cheap ones, which is probably why they didn't seem to work at first. I have to find my good ones, I suppose.

What seems to be the issue?

A:Sound suddenly stopped working

Go into device manager, delete the audio devices, and reboot. Hopefully it'll redetect everything. If not, you'll want to go to computer make (HP, Toshiba, Sony, etc ) web site and download and install the drivers.

That day suddenly my PC's USB ports stopped working. I tried all USB ports with deferent kinds of drives(pendirve, mobile, modem) but computer is not responding. I tried reinstalling my windows 7 but remains same. I also tried Ubuntu, Mint, Hirens Boot CD etc but no OS finds my any kind of USB disc. On windows 7 I tried uninstalling and installing USB drives manually but don't work. In the mean time today at dawn one of my USB modem started working(on Win7) but after some seconds it became like before.

Can anyone figure out which problem I'm facing? Is it related to my hardware?

A:Suddenly all USB ports stopped working on win 7

First place I would start would be update all primary drivers for your PC, what ever flavor you have, desktop/laptop. Go to that vendors website and download and install all the latest drivers. If you have add on specific hardware go to that vendors site for drivers.

The next thing I would do is to rule out any Virus's, malware, spyware and adware that my be lurking about your system. It's known that some of these nasties can and do corrupt system software and hardware.

I tried to play Lord of the rings battle for middle earth: rise of the witch king the other day and all of the sudden it didn't work. When i tried to load, the regular about half screen logo came up to do the initial load, but before it went into the game full screen it closed, a window came up and said Battle for Middle has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly and the game automatically closes. I tried to load multiple times, reinstall, restart my computer, i even got a whole new disk/CD key still didn't work. Any ideas why or how to solve it.

All the USB Ports were working just fine (two still are, the one with this keyboard and mouse plugged into it.. but I haven't UNPLUGGED them since this problem started so I'm NOT going to do that now, JUST IN CASE, those ports stop working too and then I have absolutely NO ACCESS to my computer at that point. ) and everything was how it normally was.  I had just plugged in a flash drive and removed data from that drive, unplugged it thru the eject button and I also had an external drive plugged in later and it worked and ejected just fine) and then OUT OF NOWHERE now it the USB ports REFUSE to work!
 
I'll plug in the device, I'll hear the NOISE on the computer that lets you know it's plugged in but then NOTHING happens and it does NOT get recognized in the My Computer/Devices folder!  I have tried ALL the available ports and NONE of them work!  I tried my devices on another computer and they work perfectly fine.  It's THIS computer!  And it's only a year and half old!!! And I bought it BRAND NEW!

A:The USB Ports *SUDDENLY* Stopped Working in my De...

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
I am assuming that the two USB ports that are working are on the back of the computer.  That the two other back ones along with the front ones are not working.  Possibly there is a conflict with the hardware information stored in the CMOS which is preventing all the USB ports from working.  I would suggest you try clearing the CMOS to see if that will correct the problem you are having.  On page #26 of your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual show the location of the coin cell CMOS battery.  The battery's socket will either have a little tab to eject the battery or a slot in which you can use a small screw driver to lightly pry up the edge the battery.  With the machine unplugged remove the battery and press the power button for 15 seconds.  Then reinstall the battery, plug and then boot up the computer to see if the problem is resolved.  It is normal after clearing the CMOS to have to enter the time & date when the computer is booted  up.
 
The link below is for your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual. When working inside your system please follow all precautions and recommendations that are noted in the manual.

i don't use the lan card to connect to the internet since i have a wireless adapter. i do however use it as a network bridge for connectivity for my xbox 360.

so i was playing xbox live until suddenly i got disconnected. i checked my computer to see that it said the network cable was unplugged. i already tried to uninstall drivers, reboot, tried a different cable etc. i narrowed it down to the nforce network controller. any help would be much obliged

Update: fixed it myself, im guessing it was an irq problem because i went into the bios and just disabled some ports i wasnt using like the parallel port for example, and the problem has cleared up.

A:onboard lan suddenly stopped working.

Thank you shaolinchamp. This might work for me. I am helping out a friend with a similar issue. I would try it before reinstalling his OS.

Both audio playback through the integrated sound card and recording through a USB microphone stopped working suddenly
 
I cannot play back or record anything
 
No application software can find the either the sound or recording channels.
 
In device manager both recording and playback devices are listed, enabled and working properly.
 
If I launch an audio track the sound bars levels against the device do not move. The speaker next to the clock is present and does not have a red cross through it.
 
The first thing I did was do a system restore to a couple of days previously when I know it was all working - still nothing.
 
I have checked the BIOS to make sure audio is enabled and set to automatic - it is.
 
Cannot be the integrated sound card - Dell XPS 430 - because the separate USB microphone does not work either.
 
It is like all audio functions have stopped being accessible to software applications, although Windows 7 Ultimate 64 sees them as present, enabled and working.
 
So Windows sees the audio devices, Windows applications do not.
 
Any ideas please?
 
Thanks

 Do headphones work?  How about bluetooth?  Bluetooth adapters are pretty cheap, I paid $15 for mine, but I'm told you can get them for as little as $5.  I have a problem with my Toshiba laptop speakers that I've circumvented with bluetooth speakers when home, and headphones when I'm not.
 
Good luck.
