Preferred Solution: Problem with my hardware hardware please help

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.)

A slight problem I have had for a while now which has recently become more frequent and problematic:

The Windows XP Hardware Insert and Hardware Remove sound effects keep playing, one after the other, at varying speeds and regular intervals, when there is no hardware being inserted or removed!

Furthermore, when this happens it affects the computer adversely, causing it to hang momentarily while the 2 sounds play. This is a particular pain when recording video, as it leaves moments of frozen frames on the file.

It used to occur quite rarely, but at the moment it is very frequent and is driving me up the wall!

Any help would be really appreciated, thanks.

I'm having some real issues with my Dell XPS 400 and I'm desperately seeking help. I'm running WinXP Pro and this pc
is only about 16 months old. It has the original factory installed ram (1 gig) , a 320 gig hard drive and the processor is an
Intel ViiV. I have been getting a blue error screen with ***Hardware Malfunction - Call your Hardware Vendor for Support - Parity Check
/ Memory Parity Error - System was halted*** that lasted for a few hours. I had to hold the power button in for several seconds each time
to shut it down. I ran both the Microsoft Windows Memory Diagnostic tests, as well as the Memtest 86 , each several times. The results were always
"no memory errors". I attempted a few times, unsucessfully, using the F11 key to reach the Acronis recovery partition. I booted using my XP
disk but was unable to re-install. Windows would begin to load and then the blue screen with the same error message would occur. Finally,
I was able to access the Acronis recovery manager and restore my pc but on reboot it began to run ChkDsk. Now it keeps rebooting and running
a new disk check over and over and over..........................I have tried to cancel the ChkDsk using the keyboard but it keeps running. I'm at a loss, as to what else,
if anything I can do, (besides ripping my hair out by the roots)

UPDATE: I was waiting for the Dell hardware diagnostics test results to finish. It took several hours and basically the same result as the memory tests. No hardware failure, I'm thinking motherboard?

Let me put this way: I have a medium-ranged machine that can support pretty much all major applications and games out there ( With the exception of those high-end games that have recently released ) However, for some unknown reason, there have been games in wich i have had a few issues. Here's what's constantly happening:

1- Whenever i look at more graphically detailed areas in certain games, the entire response time slows down. The game runs slow basically. And of course, if i move my mouse to areas that are not as detailed, it all responds flawlessly during those few seconds.

2- And now for the strangest part. Whenever i'm in servers with alot of people, the issues mentioned above tend to happen very frequently, and of course, when i'm in servers with 2-6 people or so, the issues mentioned above never happen.

I have no idea why this has been happening. I Cleaned my computer properly. I do virus checks every now and then. I have recently de-fraged my Hard Drive. I Clean up cookies, temporary files, etc.

Here's what i think: It most certainly isn't the graphics card's problem, as even when i put my settings (in games) all on the lowest ones possible.( this includes resolution ) I still have the issues mentioned above. But that's just a guess...

I'm not sure what could be doing this.. CPU maybe? The fact that my Computer's drive is nearly at it's maxed capacity? I tend to install alot of things.. could a nearly fille... Read more

Hi everybody :

I've been looking at some hardware for my computer...as spare parts. I need some advice. I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Motherboard, that uses an Intel Core i3 processor LGA 1155 , Corsair 2Gb (takes two chips) DDR3 PC10600 1333Mhz. I purchased all this around the same time.....July 2013. The computer is still functioning okay (a few "bumps" here and there). Usually, under, at least, fair conditions, how long SHOULD the memory last? Before it goes bad ? And the same question for the processor ? I'd like to be able to get some spare parts, just in case. In a last case scenario, I would probably have to do it all over again.......the MOBO, Processor and memory.

A:Computer Hardware [moved to Hardware>Building]

RAM and Processors don't wear out or fail due to time. RAM can fail for many reasons but if it is currently functioning there's no reason it won't continue to run forever. Things that could kill ram are failing power supply, voltage issues on the motherboard, power surges, static charges, etc. Processors are even more resilient. If the processor is run withing specified parameters it will run forever.

It's much more likely for a hard drive to fail. Motherboards can fail for many of the same reasons that RAM can fail. In all my time building and using computers, I've never had RAM fail or a CPU fail but I have had motherboards or components of the board fail and certainly hard drives have failed.

A:Network hardware does the job for internet hardware?

You need an ISP (Internet Service Provider), and a link to your site. How the ISP provides the connection is determined by what kind of service you have, probably a broadband modem of some sort. If you already have broadband Internet, you have equipment to connect to the Internet.

Hello, after I rebooted my computer, something odd happened; Windows said that new hardware was found when I didn't do anything to the computer.
I can't install drivers for this thing because I have no idea what it is. Looking at the device manager, I see that it says its listed as

PCI Input Device

amd the properties for it states:

PCI Slot 3 (PCI bus 2, device 2, function 1)

This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)

The Device Manager also has another device listed as an error, the 1394 port of my Sound Blaster Audigy Card.

The properties of the 1394 Net Adapter states:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)

This device used to be working perfectly before the new PCI Input Device was found, and oddly its name has changed. It used to be called "1394 Net Adapter", but now its name is "1394 Net Adapter #2" as if I took out the old one and added a new one.

Does anyone know what is going on? I haven't done anything to this computer and now these problems show up.

Since recently acquiring my new(er) computer I have had a "safely remove hardware" icon in the task tray that I cannot remove or get to operate successfully.

I have attached screen capture shots of the windows that appear when I attempt to remove this "hardware" and the icon. The upshot of the problem is that whenever I've attempted to "stop" the hardware I always get a message saying, "The ****device cannot be stopped now. Try stopping the device again later. The device, which you can see in the attached screen shots, is described as "generic volume", with what appears to be some form of identification number.

If anyone can tell me what this little rascal is and/or how I can remove it and the icon from the taskbar I'd appreciate it.

P.S. - I've newly learned that this "device" with it's icon in the system tray is the hard drive (by comparing the associated ID # indicated in the "properties" window with the hard drive # in the device manager window). I certainly don't want to remove the hard drive, but does anyone know why an icon for this device would appear in the taskbar, or know how to remove the icon only?

Hello.

On occasion, over the past 5 days my Windows 2000-Win2k machine has had some wierd output on the screen when it boots up. It looks like bad Satelight reception. This happens before Win2k boots up so I know it is not a OS thing (also because I did a system wipe).

The only other time this happend to me was when I got my Win98 machine and had to send it back. The Win98 box had a intergrated AGP (built into motherboard) card so I had to send the entire thing! I tried my screen on my Win98 machine with the monitor and it works fine every time.

My system is new. The parts were sitting around for a long while, but they we not removed from the boxes (a few times, but that was over 4 months ago).

What could be the possible problem(s)? I don't have much money to work with so what should I do?

Help.

TY
 

A:Possible hardware failure-screen?mobo?-videocard?-Help please+hardware failure?!

You might try re-seating your video card. AGP cards tend to be a bit tricky; even a small point of non-contact can create havoc. If you have access to another video card, you can try swapping video cards and see if the problem goes away. I suppose cable connections are also a possibility, although I have never seen the symptoms you describe with a loose cable.

Are you able to boot into Windoze (sorry, I couldn't tell for sure from your post)? If so, any video-related problems there?

Hope this helps.

I was sitting idle on Saturday evening and this thought came in my mind. In what ways PC hardware is different from MAC?

I am aware that Apple makes their software compatible with their hardware and they mostly use other companies hardware in their machines. Then, what is the reason why Mac is soooo expensive as compared to Windows? also, how MAC is able to provide such an amazing OS?

A:In what way mac hardware differs from PC hardware?

The base system of an Apple computer is the same basic system as a PC, and since they stopoped using Motorola CPUs and started using Intel platforms there is practically no difference in the hardware.

Amazingly (to folks like me) their newest systems are consistently older in terms of hardware (CPU) platform.

They get a (significant) premium for their brand. People are willing to fork over almost double the money to obtain the real (and somewhat perceived) benefit of a problem and (relatively) maintenance free system.
Apple computers achieve their stability because they are a closed system. You cannot (easily) modify the system or the "BIOS", and the operating system is designed only to run in that strict environment. There is not an awful lot you can do to tweak and reconfigure an Apple OS. If someone hasn't written an Apple approved program to do what you want then you just can't do it.

PC's by design are highly user configurable. The Windows operating system is also extremely configurable, being capable of running on thousands of different PC hardware configurations, running thousands of different specialized, independently produced programs, etc. This complexity and configurability comes at a price: more user maintenance and knowledge needed.

People are willing to pay a lot more to avoid doing any work, or to have to learn anything about computers. Windows has always been the SUV of computer systems. Mac has always been more like a 2-seater sports car.

I apologize for my long post in advance. I also apologize I had a post regarding this in the Digital Photography section of the forums and only had one reply which didn't answer my question and it is more a hardware question anyway. I have a Kodak EasyShare DX6340 digital camera. Along with the camera I have the Kodak EasyShare software installed on my computer and I also have the EasyShare camera dock 6000. The camera dock was supposed to make the transfer process easier and faster which in my case does neither. I also was getting an error when trying to transfer from the camera while in the dock to the PC using the Easyshare software that said Device Information Could Not Be Found. So I decided to take the dock out of the equation and hook the camera directly via USB. Now when I connected the camera the first time I got Windows Has Detected New Hardware box than went on to a box that said Windows Detected Kodak DX6340. So it seems that Windows 2000 SP4 recognized and installed the camera. Now when I go into the Easyware software to transfer pictures I get the same Device Information Could Be Found. In both using the dock and USB I am still able to put the pictures onto the PC, I just took the dock out cause it has more problems than it's worth. The problem I have is that the Easyshare software is very lethargic and clunky, for lack of better words and I want to get rid of it.

I rebooted the computer it loaded into windows fine except no sounds, and windows media player was saying there was a problem so i rebooted again and now, with the sound card in or out it freezes on the Start windows normally screen.

I am currently using my old HDD which is running fine without the card in, i havent tried it with it in yet as i might have to reboot the other HDD anyway because that is 200 gig and i would much prefer to use that one. If any of you have any ideas of how i can fix this without a reboot then please help.

Joe.

EDIT

When i try to boot from my normal HDD i click start windows normally and a white line goes accross the very bottom very quickly like a loading screen then does nothing.

Desktop pc slowly runs only 1 program, slowly, at a time since a lightning storm. Is there a way to figure out exactly what it damaged so that I may be able to fix it? Maybe like some sort of scan (that would take all day) or something. I found a website called www.testmyhardware.com but I'm not sure if I should run it or not. Any and all help would be appreciated.

I tried to search several times on the forum and each time it says it cannot display the page, so I just had to post the problem. Sorry for any inconvience.

I do not have a OS on this system quite yet, as it has just been put together.

Now then, I'm having some difficulties...everything seems to be wired up correctly, but when I power up the system it runs for just a few seconds then shuts off..and the screen never goes into the BIOS, it just stays black. After a few retries it then decides to power on and stay on and let me set up the BIOS.

Anyone know what the reasoning for this might be? It seems to be powering on just fine now, but it still makes me uneasy about the whole ordeal.

Thank you,

Hi Xen00b,

Perhaps, it just needed a few startups to reset itself. ??

If it is running fine now, I would not worry about it to much.

Hi...I am new to forums so I am not sure if I am in the right place for my question but here goes...just bought a new laptop charger on ebay for my Dell Inspiron 1720...it's a generic 90 watt charger and its triggering a black error message saying: "the ac power adaptor wattage & type cannot be determined". How do I set my machine to recognize the new charger? Thanks in advance.

A:Hardware Problem.

You should go with the manufacturer's (Dell's) charger rather than a generic. This one might not be compatible. You might also try contacting the generic charger's manufacturer.

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 running Windows XP.
In the past 36 months I have had 6 DVD and CD drives replaced in this computer. The problem is always the same in that the tray gets to where it will not open. I open it with a paper clip and the tray is loose and free moving. A couple of times I have seen the small drive belt and it is broken. I have gone through 2 (20X Liteon) drives in the last 60 days with very limited usage. I am the only user of the computer and extremely careful so I know the tray is not being beat up and abused. Would appreciate any help someone may offer.
Thanks---

I have an asus t2-ah1 barebone system, it runs on windows vista enterprise edition.

lately when it is running it has been prone to suddenly "shutting off" all on its own

the monitor would go blank and the computer would start to reboot

when this happens an audible click and/or blip can be heard from the computer, I do not know if it is emitted from the mainboard, hard drive, or graphics card or some other component.

the situation now is that I can't even get into windows, as the computer would suddenly blink and go out and start rebooting every time it is half way through start-up.

I don't think it is the power supply unit, since I only recently replaced it with a new (higher wattage) one, so what could the problem be?
 

A:Hardware problem?

http://www.ciao.co.uk/Reviews/ASUS_T2_AH1__6478215 this one? if so what did you add to it?
can you reboot into safe mode? do a restore? use disc to repair ?
shutting down usually heat related or ram issue
remove 1 ram if have 2 re try
whilst in there check all connectors, a iffy connector to a HD will do what you are experiencing
re seat CPU ?
were you installing vista updates?

Hi! I recently assmebled a new CPU and its been giving me trouble. I have a Intel 2.4 GHZ core 2dual proccessor on a Intel 945GCNL SND/VGA NIC Motherboard with XP Pro loaded.It started out well but then a message was displayed "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
The problem seems to be caused by the following file igxprd32
If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps.

The device driver got stuck in an infinite loop.This usually incicates problem with the device itself or with device driver programming the hardware incorrectly.

Please check with the hardware deivice vendor for any further driver updates".
I went to the Intel website and downloaded the driver updates and tha BIOS update installed it also. It seemd to be okay for some time and then the same thing happened again. What could be done? Please Help! Thank You.

Running windows 98 se. Computer ran fine for 2 years. No glitches. Last week video had interference on it. Then the computer began to lock up. Did numerous reboots. Same result but the computer would stop at different locations during reboot.
I ordered a new video card. When I installed it the video interference went away but the boot up problem remained. Did defrag in safe mode. No problems. Have disabled various hardware items...floppy...cd...printer..modem. No help. Is this a problem with the processor or mobo?
