I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

My firefox was working absolutely fine.

Today when I opened techguy.org in firefox 3.0.8, i cudnt see the arrows besides New Posts and Quick Links at the top. On clicking either of the above 2 links, it does not give a drop down menu but the page just refreshes. Also I am not able to use any of the formatting options in the message textbox on the Post New Thread or Post New Message page. Im not even able to use the formatting options in the Quick Reply text box. Also, when I write a message in which I have used [Enter] for a new line and put 3 paragraphs in a message, the message when posted appears as one single, that is it is not recognising the [enter/return].

The drop down menus for the forum options bar(the menu above which has options: Security& HJT, Software & Hardware, Operating Systems, Internet & Networking, General Tech, Community) is working fine.

The other thing is that I cannot open Gmail normally. After sometime it tells me Try Reloading the Page. Gmail opens in basic HTML.

Techguy and Gmail both are working absolutely fine in IE7(wish it was the other way round, I wudnt even have bothered).

I am posting this message using IE7.

Please help...

So I had this Bluetooth mouse that I only used occasionally. After installing Windows 8, I tried turning it on only to find that it was wasn't functioning. So, naturally I thought of pairing it once more. Unfortunately, the god damn thing just wont show up! I have a feeling it's because I had that mouse as an active device when I was on Windows 7. Anyway to get this to show.

I have a feeling completely removing any traces of the mouse might get it to work again. But I don't know how to do that. I removed it from Device Manager's Bluetooth Devices' section but that didn't do the trick. Furthermore, the Mouse Settings' Bluetooth Tab still lists my mouse as a functioning device although it doesn't show up in the Control Panel's Bluetooth Device list.

PS: The Mouse has no issues. It works fine on my Friends system on Windows 8.

A:My Bluetooth Mouse wont Pair... Heck it wont even show up!


Update Bluetooth drivers to latest, and then also the mouse drivers to latest.

If this is a Razer device as your screen name alludes to, be prepared for the possibility of multiple bsods a day. Razer is good for that, for sure. Maybe you'll luck out and they've actually fixed their drivers by now instead of putting fake dates on their webpage that make it look like ancient drivers are new.

I am having the often discussed "IE wont show pics just little boxes with x's in them" issue. It happens only on some webpages, ie www.cnn.com and www.weather.com .

Ive read through past threads about this issue. I dont have norton firewall, I have all proper file associations, etc. The only thing that solves this issue, and then only partly solves it, is changing the encoding to western european (windows) and auto select. That gets the page and pictures to load correctly, however, there are 2 issues with this which are driving me NUTS:

1. When I change the encoding settings to Western European (windows) and Auto Select, offending webpages display correctly. However, the encoding will get all screwed up as soon as I goto another webpage, thus making me fiddle with the encoding settings everytime a page loads up wrong.
2. Even after I change the encoding settings, I can not see thumbnails, this is especially disturbing.

So my questions are as follows:

1. How do I get the encoding settings to stay the same no matter what, so I dont have to keep changing them?
2. Even after I change the encoding settings, why wont it display thumbnails, and how can I get thumbnails to display again?

And just one more note, this issue just started happening on its own recently. WinXP, IE6, brand new pc basically

A:IE6 wont show pics or thumbnails, and wont keep encoding settings

So I just re-installed my Windows 7 and re-formatted my disk after getting the virus Win32:Sality. However, after I installed my graphics drivers and restarted my computer, the taskbar and icons wouldn't show. I can see my cursor and can move it. I can right click and get options as well. If I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, the screen just goes black. I can still see and move my cursor. This happened after I installed my graphics drivers.

EDIT: Safe mode works fine.

I would like to be able to monitor my cpu usage and physical ram usage in the task bar, much like how windows 7 has a desktop gadget.
Google search has told me to use task manager, and to check the "hide when minimized" option, and it'll display the square green and black meter.
But for some reason when I tried to add a shortcut to task manager to my startup folder, that little graph never shows up anymore.

Also in the past, when I installed windows media center on my desktop, there was a little icon added that was black/green/yellow/red that monitored cpu usage. I can't seem to find that..
So does anyone know of a program that can monitor cpu usage AND physical ram? I'd appreciate it.

A:Show cpu and ram usage in taskbar?

Goto C:\Windows\System32 and right click the taskmgr.exe and create a shortcut.

Cut and paste that on your desktop.

When you activate it and then minimize it, you get the little green icon in the Task bar.

I bought a new desktop last year to run high-end software used for my degree; I installed Windows 8 on it, having got on with it on my laptop. I did notice though, after venturing into the Task Manager, that my CPU usage was at 100%. All the time. Even when idle. In fact, resource monitor says it's working at 108% load! I thought this was rather odd, so investigated further:

It appears that task manager divides the 100% usage proportionally between the processes using the CPU. So for example if Firefox, Word and Notepad were using 5%, 3% and 2% respectively, Task Manager would report 50%, 30% and 20% usage. I was initially concerned that my processor was going to take some serious damage to its life expectancy if it was being constantly loaded - but the performance monitor in Norton Anti-virus shows the CPU load to be much, much lower - where I'd expect it to be.

My system is an 3.4GHz i7, with 16GB RAM running 64-bit Windows 8 Pro. People have suggested a fresh install, but it's an almighty pain backing everything up and re-installing VPN servers and software through various security measures, so I'd rather not...

Any clues?

A:Why does task manager always show CPU usage at 100%? It's

Here's my task manager. I have two browsers open (sitting idle). Is this what you are looking at? If so, screenshot please:

Just recently I noticed that the CPU is going all the time (The bottom of the laptop is very hot to the touch; and I can hear the CPU fan constantly going). Even when I get the CPU usage down < 5%, I can still hear it. Also, when I disconnect it from the outlet; the battery drains FAST. In the past it the laptop quiets down and cools off if left idle for awhile, so this is something that is happening recently.

After noticing it, I ran a scan with MBAM - it found and removed a few Malware.Trace registry keys but that didn't seem to help.

Anyway, thanks to everyone in advance for all your help (It really is appreciated)

some days ago, when analyzing another problem, i stumbled upon a fatal error in the CPU performance display in the Microsoft task manager. I wrote a little bit about this problem in the following post.


In summary: for me, the task manager as well as the resource monitor and the performance monitor do not show the correct CPU utilization.

Here is an example.

I start a test and the CPU display of core 0 climbs to 100% in Task Manager.

The Resource Monitor shows the same thing.

Only the performance monitor shows the correct load, but the display it "inconsistent".

The processor load is normally shown up to max. 100%, but my core 0 run according to the performance monitoring with up to 120%. ??

The Process Explorer shows the correct utilization of my core 0.

HWiNFO also shows the load correctly.

I suddenly had the following apprehension.
If you cannot correctly measure the utilization of a system, so it's not possible to control its performance properly. ??

So I immediately opened a support ticket at Microsoft by telephone and then described the problem accordingly by email.

A few hours later I received an email with the following text. "Dear Mr. Fuchs, your support case has been closed."

That can not be true. ?
Dear Microsoft, determining and displaying the CPU loa... Read more

Win 8.1/64 with all the latest fisxes, I am on a slow satellite internet connection (Starband) and do almost all our downloading from midnight to 6 am because that window does not count against our bandwidth usage. Last night I downloaded about 450mb between midnight and 6 am and the network usage app reported zero usage between midnight and 6 am but reported it all in the 6am window which is a problem for me. This showed at 6:04 am which makes it physically impossible.
Yesterday I did the registry hack to remove the 20% system reserved bandwidth in order to speed up the network and wonder if this could of had an impact on the false recording?
All suggestions appreciated.

A:Network Usage app show false data

I also recently set my wifi connection to a metered connection to save bandwidth and wondering if that can cause the weirdness with the Network Usage app. Now the network app only flashes briefly and disappears when started. Did an uninstall and reinstalled from app store and the same weirdness occurs where if just flashes briefly when selected then goes away. Also when I click on estimated usage or reset under my network icon in settings nothing happens. The registry key for viewing network usage is 1.

Win 7 64 bit Dell Optiplex 780. 4G RAM.
A few days ago the system went sideways and now I have very high (but fluctuating) CPU usage and memory usage.  Processes in Task Manager  are running wild and some are showing multiple instances where I wouldn't have expect them to be so. Using Chrome to make this post but IE repeatedly crashes and allowing the crash to search for a resolution to the problem does not produce results. Details have shown issues with various dll files. 
I've temporarily removed avast. Installed and run malwarebytes, adware, jrt, ccleaner. Did a scan disc. All these come back clean.
Thinking this is a windows issue but not sure where to start.

Win 7 Pro 64-bit. On reboot, I want Task Manager to start automatically, as early as possible, ideally in the Processes tab, showing processes from all users, and sorted by CPU usage (with max CPU usage on top).

If that's too specific, then I just want Task Manager to start automatically on reboot, as early as possible, regardless of its focus.

How can I do this?

If it's helpful, I have autoruns, but I've never used it to make a new startup program.

A:Solved: New RAM wont show

32-bit Windows has a 4GB address space. This includes graphics memory, system BIOSes and RAM. You have a 1GB graphics card and 256MB system BIOS so only 2.75GB of the address space is left for RAM. To use the extra 1.25GB you need to move to 64-bit.

the upper 512MB is usually used for DMA purposes to various system busses. However, the exact size of this block varies by motherboard, and legacy hardware [especially parallel busses, like PCI] can cause more then 512MB to be reserved by the OS.

At the end of the day, whatever the reason, 1.25GB of RAM is simply going to be unusable on win32. THIS IS NORMAL. There is nothing you can do about it, short of using PAE or moving to win64.

I didnt have this problem until after I deleted some things after having a program hijack my browser. I ran hijackthis, ad-aware, and spybot, that problem is now fixed. I went to macromedia's site to download the flash player but it isnt working, the pictures still wont show up.

A:pictures wont show up

Have you tried running an alternative browser like netscape or opera to see if that will work. If one of those work, then i would advise you to reinstall Internet Explorer.

Hello all.

Last night i put together a computer which included a 160GB Maxtor Serial ATA hard drive.

This morning, everything was working (including HD) so i installed XP Pro SP2.

MY Power Supply is a Thermaltake 480W with adjustable fanspeed control or something like that.

After i istalled some drivers and rebooted a few times i lowered the fan speed on my PS.

Now after i did that my HD will not show up in the bios anymore.

I tried switching and reconnecting cables and still nothing.

Even loaded XP again from the CD and it tells me there is no HD.

So even though it's in there, i have no HD.

If this has happened to anyone before and you've fixed it, please let me know.

Thanx in advance.

When browsing certain websites are failing to show up, giving me the "internet explorer cannot display the webpage" message. I've tried this in Internet Explorer 7, Firefox and Opera and its always the same, which i assume means its not a browser problem and perhaps a windows problem. I have McAfee internet security 2005 and run PeerGuardian 2, but the problem persists even with both of these disabled, and when i perform a clean boot of XP.

Most websites work ok, but there are some that never do. The most recent two are www.manchesterairport.co.uk and www.hertzvans.co.uk . Both of these work on other computers in different locations, however i have the same problem on my PDA when i plug it into my PC via active sync

A:Why wont certain websites show up?

Hi paulhol

Doesn't PeerGuardian2 add sites to the blocked IP lists in each browser installed on your system? I'd expect that it's an over-zealous recent list (or bug). It wouldn't matter that the blocking programs aren't running - the changes to the list would persist.

Try adding those to sites to your "always allow" sites in the Security/Privacy settings for each browser you use.

Best of luck

A:Picture wont show?

Probably not the answer you are seeking but it sounds as if the recapture only got the thumbnail. Which image editing program did you use to recover the pictures?

Hi, and welcome to TSF.

The link you posted seems to be dead which is strange because I reached the page through a google search and the address is exactly the same.

Anyway, you don't mention any details about the virus and what steps you have taken to clean your system but I think the best advice would be to follow these instructions to make sure your system is clean before you proceed.

Please click on the following link to produce the requested logs and start a new thread in the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help section, NOT BACK HERE. If you still require assistance AFTER your logs are declared clean please post back here.

Click here >>>>> First Steps

Follow the instructions carefully. If you cannot complete any of the steps, go on to the next but don't forget to mention your problem to the analyst.

You will need to be patient as this section is usually very busy but a security analyst will be along to assist you as soon as one is available.
