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.)

Water damage, solely, to built in keyboard a year ago. Some keys do not register while others register random keys. Since then I have been using the advent external keyboard without any problems; until today. The external keyboard almost mimics the built in one now. I've tried troubleshooting and re installed the device drivers multiple times however nothing has changed.

Some help and or advice would be greatly appreciated,
thanks in advance!

Dell Inspiron 1420 - Vista, it is old one was working perfectly till now.
Issue: the Keys automatically starts typing and performing various keystroke functions, also disabling may keys. Even in BIOS mode key entries were restricted
Solutions tried ( nothing worked):
Disabled the keyboard , used external keyboard USB ( doesn't resolved)
bought new dell keyboard, didn't resolved the issue
Ran in safe mode, issue persist
Formatted to factory default mode, issue persist
Observation: I see multimedia keys always blinking randomly ( can this be multimedia keys, interfacing with keyboard. I planned to remove it but it was soldered across. please confirm if I shall disable this keyboard ( hardware) as extra step, if Yes shall I remove solder or there is workaround.
Any guidance would be help if any other option to be tried

A:Dell Keyboard not functioning correctly even after disabling it

As my  curiosity and timelines were ending, I dared to rip out the soldering connecting to Multimedia keys/buttons circuit board, then put a tape around the ribbon cable end, booted my system. VOLA it worked no automatic typing, no freaky ghost playing on my system. Still keeping finger crossed as I unplugged only one side, i hope it does not impact and driver or systems.
I will try to find the part if available in market.
I was on edge to buy new laptop, as this issue was running for 6 months. saved me few more bucks. Will try to check if this can support Windows 8 or later as it is core2 DUO 3 GB ram.

About 2 hours ago, my mouse started functioning as if ClickLock had been activated. I went to CP to resolve the problem, but ClickLock wasn't on. After about 20 minutes of playing around, I gave up and tried System Restore; it wasn't able to be completed. After I had recieved this message of System Restore's failure, the letter and number keys on my keyboard had been disabled, (when I tried to press them, they started beeping) every other key was fine. So, I restarted my PC again and this solved the keyboard problem, however my mouse is still permenantly on ClickLock.
edit: Not only is the mouse on ClickLock it is also very slow and occasionally unresponsive to clicking. e.g I click the desktop and the mouse starts making a drag selection, so I spend the next 30 seconds clicking at the right time to make it stop

Since System Restore isn't working and my mouse has suddenly become disfunctional, I've decided to come here in case I have a virus problem.

I use the software program Secunia PSI to scan,check, and monitor my operating system for faulty programs that require updates.

What I would do is do a RESTORE POINT from a previous day that the problem didn't extist. That would at least get you back on level ground.

I have a CD BURNER (SONY CD-RW CRX100E) on my PC.... However, whenever I try to burn an audio CD... something always goes wrong.

I have tried several burning programs such as DEEP-BURNER, Burn for FREE etc... and I either get an ASCI error message or another error message about an RPC STUB or something....

Someone suggested that my burning hardware is not working correctly.

However, when I go into the device manager and look around, it says the device is working properly and that it has updated drivers.

I just cannot get any of these programs to burn a disk for me.

Any ideas as to what may be happening here? If it says the device is working properly, is that telling me that the burner hardware is OK or is it something to do with these programs?

Thanks in advance

Try removing the power cable from the back of the router. Leave it out for a couple of minutes. This will flush the router out. N.B. This is not the same as turning off the power.

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron 7000 Series laptop here running Windows 8.1 64bit. Everything has been fine up until this point.

Over the past few days I've been having the machine give me nothing but a headache.

I've done all the hardware testing. Temps, CHKDSK, Memory Check, etc. have all passed fine.

Windows is fully updated, with no new software recently installed and drivers running the latest version.

Windows Explorer, IE, and Office have been constantly crashing, freezing, or locking up. I decided to run a SFC scan, only for Windows to report that my system has some corrupt files, and by the looks of the log, there's a lot of them.

Having an odd problem with my laptop (Dell 1440). I recently noticed that my laptop touch pad had stopped working within Windows 7, yet the external mouse I had attached still did. However, it's odd because I also have windows XP dual booted on my machine along with my Windows 7 installation, and the same touch pad driver still functions correctly within XP. So, what I did is attempt to uninstall the Alps touch pad driver and reinstall it. After uninstalling it, I noticed that the driver that was installed by default within Windows 7, works just fine. However, after reinstalling the Alps touch pad driver from the Dell website, my touch pad stops working once again. Does anyone know why my computer is exhibiting this behavior, and if so, what can I do to fix it?

Thanks,
Mike

A:Laptop Touch Pad Not Functioning Correctly

You said the touchpad driver installed by Windows 7 from it's own driver library "works just fine", so why didn't you simply leave it at that instead of messing it up with the driver from Dell?
Once something starts to work properly, leave it alone!

Just because Dell has driver doesn't mean you have to use it if the device in question is already working okay.

Remove the Dell driver and let Windows 7 install it's own driver again, then leave it!

Microsoft went to great lengths with Windows 7 to include many more third-party drivers so we would have less drivers to download & install manually.

I'm afraid with that description, it's hard to be sure what the failure is.

I suggest you obtain a 2.5" to 3.5" IDE Adapter and connect the hard disk to your secondary IDE channel in a desktop. Remove the devices (CD's, etc.) on the secondary channel temporarily for the test. You can test the drive there, and if it's bad, you have your answer.

Hello,
I use the FortiClient SSL application to connect to work. In Windows 7 x64 it works without issue. In Windows 8 Build 9200 it exhibits and odd behaviour.
I can connect using FortiClient version 4.4.3.445. Once connected my sent bytes continues to increase which is correct. However received bytes stays at 0.
If I try to Remote Desktop it fails.  This is obviously due to no inbound packets coming back from the Fortigate appliance being allowed back to Windows 8.
Disabling the Firewall doesn't have any affect on the condition. Received bytes stays at 0. 
This is a clean install with no 3rd party applications, other than the Forticlient software. This is only the SSL VPN portion of  the the FortiClient software and does not included AV or Firewall options.
Doing some Googling, I've seen some other people with the same problem but no resolution. Another FortiClient user and Sophos & Juniper SSL VPN clients having the same problem.
Does anybody have any idea what would be causing the SSL VPN to only send bytes but not receive.
Thanks!

TL;DR - After factory reset, my TL-WR841N router can no longer detect an IP using dynamic IP. Connecting my computer directly still allows me to surf the internet.

My issues with this router started when I could no longer access anything related to Google besides the search engine and Gmail. Google docs, translate, support, youtube all stopped working. After a couple days of troubleshooting I found out the problem had to do with my internet (I could still access those sites from my phone without wifi, but after connecting to the wifi I could no longer access those websites). I assumed my problems could either be with my router or my ISP, but I couldn't access 192.168.1.1 from my Macbook Air at that time (not sure why).

That's when I made the decision to reset my router, thinking that if anything I would just have to set up a new wireless network and that would be the end of it. Unfortunately, after I reset the router, the router could no longer detect an IP address using Quick Setup. I have DSL so I figure dynamic IP would work, but the router can never get an IP address.

What can I do to fix this? I'm now using a wired connection from a PC to try to fix this problem.

Hey

After I got my new laptop, my mom had wanted to print a few things off of some websites. After the installation of my Printer (HP Officejet V40) onto my new laptop (HP Pavilion g7-2010nr Notebook PC), I tried printing those things. But there were always problems with each of the printing attempts.

1. There was always an error in the Printing Queue that didn't let me print anything.
2. When I printed off of Google Chrome, one or more of the pages would be skipped unless it was the last line or so at the bottom.
3. The sites don't print out correctly sometimes or the printer stops suddenly after 1-2 pages
4. At the end sometimes it just randomly ejects a blank sheet.

I've tried using the troubleshooter and it says it is fixed, but the errors keep happening. I don't know if I should get a new printer or not..because school is in 2 weeks for me and I need a printer.

I can log on to my account and access my inbox, however when I try to open an e-mail, the browser takes me back to the mail home page (not inbox). Sometimes the mail will open briefly, but then reverts to the home page and use of the back button just repeats the process. On the very seldom occasion that the page will actually hold on the open e-mail, when I press reply I get taken back to the home screen again...
I have two linked accounts, one upgraded to Outlook and the other retaining hotmail status. I have the same problem with both accounts and had this problem before changing to outlook on the first account. In fact I have always had this problem since upgrading my laptop (VAIO SA Series).

I am running IE 8 on windows 7 Pro, 64 Bit. I have not experienced this problem on any other machine (and I use more variety than most). Incidentally, this problem does not occur on my machine when using Chrome browser.

The closest to a similar problem I found online suggested changing settings to use HTTPS, as my setting were already set to use this, I tried disabling it. I actually thought I'd solved the issue when I did a test, however the problem still exists today.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks,

SJ

Hi,
 
I recently was infected with a Trojan.Ransom.REL virus. 
 
Removal was successful using Malwarebytes in SafeMode.
 
I am receiving a similar issue to the user in this thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/438885/one-or-more-of-the-following-windows-services-are-not-running/
 
It seems to be deactivating my built in antivirus firewall shortly after rebooting my computer each time.  It also appears that my Windows Updates and Security services are disabled and cannot be manually reactivated.
 
I have run a scan using FSS to start with.
 
Any assistance and suggestions are appreciated.

Having an odd problem with my laptop (Dell 1440). I recently noticed that my laptop touch pad had stopped working within Windows 7, yet the external mouse I had attached still did. However, it's odd because I also have windows XP dual booted on my machine along with my Windows 7 installation, and the same touch pad driver still functions correctly within XP. So, what I did is attempt to uninstall the Alps touch pad driver and reinstall it. After uninstalling it, I noticed that the driver that was installed by default within Windows 7, works just fine. However, after reinstalling the Alps touch pad driver from the Dell website, my touch pad stops working once again. Does anyone know why my computer is exhibiting this behavior, and if so, what can I do to fix it?

Thanks,
Mike

Have you checked that the driver has in fact installed by checking the date 2/22/2010

and this only happens on the Windows 7 side?

Hi all. I have already posted this once here. The topic had quite a few views and not a single reply. I'm giving this another try, as the problem persists and is not getting any better.

The keyboard on my Aurora m9700 is having some strange issues. I cannot figure if it is software or hardware related, either. At random intervals, the keyboard will cease function. But when I go into standby, then come out of standby the problem seems to be magically fixed! In fact, the problem just happened right after I finished typing the last sentence. I checked event manager, nothing changed. I had to go into standby and come out of it...

So please, is there anyone on here that can help me out? I have reformatted the computer since this started happening and nothing has changed, so I do not know what could possibly be causing this!

After the recent windows update our intranet site has stopped functioning and is throwing an access is denied error that is preving the rest of the site from working (KB4486474). We use JavaScript to
set some images on our main page and the images are no longer loading.  I've tried tweaking the security settings, changing compatibility mode, and changing the browser emulation. The only thing that works is to uninstall the windows update. Any

I have thinkpad w530 w windows 8.1 I am trying to capture video footage into my computer using a firewire card that of course plugs into the MEDIA CARD READER SLOT. I can't get the computer to recognize my camcorder- the camcorder connection does not show up in DEVICE MANAGER I am using HDVSPLIT to capture the video and also in hdvsplit there is a message, "camera not recognized" or something like that.  I am not sure if the media card reader is bad, or maybe the firewire card is bad or maybe it is the hdv split that is the problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

A:How do I tell if my Media Card Reader/Express card slot is functioning correctly?

Hello,
 
Could it be the ExpressCard slot that the FireWire card plugs into?  I've never seen a FireWire card that plugs into the media card slot used for SD Cards.
 
FireWire cards can be a little tricky to get working sometimes, especially when interfacing with a camcorder. 
 
Have you checked with the manufacturer to see if Windows 8.1 drivers are available for it?  Even if they are not, it may be possible to use Windows 7 or even Windows Vista drivers. 
 
Once you have verified that the FireWire card is recognized, plug the camcorder in again, amd see if it gets recognized.  If it does not, check with its manufacturer for Windows 8.1 drivers, just like you did with the FireWire card.
 
At that point, the hardware should all be working with Windows 8.1. 
 
Regards,
 
Aryeh Goretsky

Hello,
I am currently using an XPS 13 but seem to be having issues with my keyboard. It was working fine yesterday, and I am able to log in, but I cannot use my keyboard after logging into my laptop. Everytime I attempt to type, a clicking sound is made, but nothing happens. I've tried restarting my laptop, updating, but nothing seems to be working. Any advice would be a great help.
Thank you

Hi Guys,
I have this strange problem. When I type something on the keyboard none of the printable characters show up on the screen i.e. if I open up a word processor or an IE nothing I type shows up. But if I press Ctrl+Alt+Delete the windows security screen shows up as it is supposed to. The arrow keys also work fine. Also, the pc reboots every so often (no set interval), a blue screen comes up before the system reboots but it doesn't stay up long enough to read what it says. Could this be caused by a virus? If so, do you know any fixes? I'm using Windows 2000. Help is greatly appriciated.

I use a wireless mouse and keyboard. Every now and then, often enough to be irritating, the keyboard fails to function: the mouse works properly. The keyboard problem persists for a few minutes, after which it works again. There is no discernable pattern to this problem.

This is the third wireless keyboard to show the same problem, suggesting something is wrong elsewhere.

The keyboard batteries are not responsible for the failure.

On the same desk is a cordless telephone.

Any helpful suggestions would be very gratefully received.

A:Intermittent keyboard non-functioning

I wonder if you are suspecting interference from other wireless transmitting devices? Your comment about the cordless phone suggests an obvious test - could you relocate the phone elsewhere and see if the problem still occurs? The same with any other wireless devices located nearby. Do you have any nearby electrical devices or lights which emit radio frequency noise?

Hi.
Got an issue here. There's an error in my computer and because I'm not able to do anything when the system BIOS prompts me to, I can't fix it. I can see power lights on my keyboard but still, trying to get inside the system BIOS menus, boot from CD, or or even start into safe mode are impossible for me. However, I can get inside the BIOS if I immediately, (and I mean IMMEDIATELY) hit the respective button as soon and the POST starts. But after that, when I'm inside the BIOS menu, again, I cant do anything. I've even tried using a PS/2 to USB adapter to see if it may work, but to no avail. Right now I'm trying to reset the jumpers and take out the battery in hope that this will reset the settings. I've benched down to everything except the hard drive, RAM, and processor. Any suggestions?
