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.)


Hello Microsoft team,
We need for an application to unplug and replug usb3 - not physically but with a program.
We checked a lot on the internet but did not find answer how to do it in windows 8.1 pro (in c++).
We know that hibernation creates something alike, but how can we only turn down the power of usb3 and return the power back on back via program (in c++).
Thank you for your help.

Running Windows Vista Ultimate.

Display turns off after about fifteen minutes regardless of whether I am actively using the computer or not. The only way to turn the display back on is to close and then open the lid. This disconnets me from AOL, so I have to sign back on again, and if I was emailing, I might lose my current email.

Under Power Options, I have 'Turn off the display' set to Never for both On Battery and Plugged in. Under 'Put the computer to sleep' I have both On battery and Plugged in set to never. Nonetheless, the display still shuts off while I am working.

What do I need to do to prevent the display from turning off at odd intervals?

A:Vista Ultimate x64: turn off display, will not turn back on

sounds like your display drivers are crashing.

Do not rely on windows update drivers - go to graphics chipset manufacturer website and get latest drivers

So I have already tried the solutions such as boot up the pc and press shift and such to get a menu and then download somthing on a usb and get into an administrator account.The Administration account I can at least log onto as it's not password protected but I still can't turn on Wi-Fi which basically defeats my whole purpose of using the computer as I use it for gaming. So regarding me not being able to log into my actual account, I've tried resetting my password multiple times without success. I think it's due to the fact that I am not able to connect to any Wi-Fi spots (which I assume is because of safe mode which I can't turn off for some reason) And that brings me to my next point, of I can't connect to Wi-Fi die to safe mode. I have tried to turn off safe mode in the settings but when I press the button for it to turn off it slides back over to the on side. Please let me know if you have any other solutions that I have not tried yet, Thanks !

Good afternoon,   I was browsing the Internet when my laptop shut off without warning.  Now, considering the spectre x360's infamy for running very hot, and that it was pretty warm in room at the time, I initially put it down to it overheating. It is worth noting that other than the laptop switching off, there was nothing amiss.  There were no beeping noises, error messages or burning smells as others have reported in other similar threads with similar issues.  I left it it to cool completely and tried to switch it back on, and nothing happened.  The fans don't spin, and none of the LED's  anywhere on the machine light up at any point.       I read through troubleshooting guides, checking the adapter is undamaged, the wall socket works, etc. I was unable to find any problems via the troubleshooting, and the only thing left it recommended was a hard reset.  After much searching I found a thread on here with instructions on how to perform a hard reset on my particular model. These were as follows; -Switch off laptop-Unplug all peripheral devices-Unplug power adapter-hold power button for about 60seconds-plug supply back in and boot up I attempted this with no success, I still can't elicit any response from my laptop.  At this stage I am utterly stuck and can't fathom what to do next.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.   ThanksSam

My laptop  (Dell Inspiron 15 model 3531) turned off and will not turn back on. I've tried removing the battery and using the power cord, however, every time I plug the power cord in the light on it turns off. I've tried removing the battery and pressing the power button down for 30 seconds and then plugging the power cord back into it, with the battery in.....same, no beeping or anything. I don't know if it's under warranty as I got it from school and they are now closed (ITT TECH). I have an older inspiron, but this one had all of my programs from school. Thank you for your help.

Recently, I upgraded my Laptop to Win 10. However, because a program doesn't work in Windows 10, I decided to go back to Windows 8.1. I did it through the "Settings" that you can find by clicking the "Start" button. After the computer restarts for Windows 8.1, it's all normal - Until after I enter in my password, the screen becomes black. The screen's not broken, because the mouse cursor is still there. I restarted it a coupon of times, took out the battery and everything, but it still won't work. Luckily, I still have most of stuff on my old HDD, so I can just use it. But I really want to use my SSD since it's much faster. I really hope someone can help me.

I was doing work on my laptop when suddenly it made a small "bzz" sound as if powering down and switched off. It will not turn back on and I have tried removing the battery for 5 minutes and putting it back in with and without AC plugged in, but it will not turn back on. I haven't really had any problems at all before this, and I have a lot of vital work that I had not yet backed up that I really can't lose. It is 4 years old and I got it in 2012 so I'm pretty sure it's out of warranty.  Any suggestions to turn it back on/ get back any work I may have lost?

Recently, my laptop shut down and I havn't been able to turn it on since, I thought it might have been my Power Cord, so i got that replaced, but it still never worked?
Nothing works, nothing works when i press the power button, I tried taking out the battery and power cord, etc. but still nothing...

I don't think it is the motherboard because I recently had my motherboard replaced with a brand new one, so I don't really know the problem?

Could somebody please help me...?

Hi Howlett93,
Welcome to Techspot.

Just a couple of question:

Why was the orgigional motherboard replaced?

What is the make of the Laptop?

What did you do the day before is didnt turn on again?

CAn we have more PC specs? eg operating sytem RAM etc.

When you tired taking out the battery did you hold down the powerbutton for about 0 second to get rid of any remaining charge.

This gives us a clearer picture.

Basically, the laptop was working fine. It was mine, i had to hand it down to my mother as she wanted a laptop and i got a new desktop, it was cheaper that way.

However there was quite a lot of junk on my laptop, and not a lot of space on the hard drive so i formatted the hard drive using the system/recovery discs that came with the laptop. It was working fine, the windows XP thing came up that runs you through naming the computer and saying what keyboard you want ect. but my mum wasnt available at the time so i put the computer in standby. Later on my dad switched it off, by holding the power button down. When it was switched back on it seemed to be ok, came up with the same windows XP beginning thing. BUT the slightest bump, movement ect. and it switched itself off. Sometimes it does it withjout a bump or movement automatically. We did get through the windows XP thing and install microsoft office but thats as far as we could get.

When it switches off when you try and switch it back on, the "media activity" light comes on which apparently means the hard drive is active but thats all. Nothing else. You switch it off again by holding down the power button for a few seconds and try again and its the same. You have to leave it for hours before it finally switches back on, and then after 10 minutes or so, it switches off and the cycle begins again.

Please help!

Its an Acer TravelMate 240 laptop.

A:Laptop turns off, won't turn back on...

Almost certainly a hardware problem, and I would guess unrelated to the reinstall of Windows.

Software problems do not cause such "movement sensitive" issues.

Mind you, about the last thing I would ever do would be to try to invoke Standby before Windows was fully installed! But thats unlikely to be the problem. I would think that service is needed, unless you have microsurgery and microelectronics skills.

My laptop shut off during an update and won't turn back on. I've tried a hard reset and it still isn't doing anything. I do get a white light showing the AC adapter is in and charging, and I also get an orange led light on the wireless key but then after about 20-30 seconds it goes away. There's never a fan sound or anything. What do I do next?

So a few weeks ago I was using my Acer Aspire M5 series and it died on me, which isn't that surprising my battery has always sucked, but now it won't turn back on or charge. I've tried different cords, and the charging light never comes on and it never turns on either. Recently when I tired a new cord I noticed that I could hear a constant clicking sound. I don't have the money to take it in right now, and it's extremely inconvenient because I have online classes that I need to work on. I've tried searching for answers, and a few months ago I had to find a new cord, and it's almost like this laptop doesn't exist. It took me over an hour to find a cord online for it and I never found any specific information on it when I searched for it. It's been extremely frustrating. I've really hit a brick wall with this laptop, and I'd appreciate any help or advice I could get, on the problem or the laptop itself.

A:Acer Laptop Died and Won't Turn Back On

It sounds like possibly the charging port plug is broken. It is a fairly common issue on these laptops. Take a light and look into the port and see if you can tell if the pin is missing or broken. Then it depends on how comfortable you are with opening your computer to test and possibly fix.

I was playing a game and my laptop completely cut out. I assumed it was an overheating problem, but it was only warm, not hot. It's been about 15mins now and it's still not turning on. When I press the power button the light comes on for a brief second then turns off and the speaker makes a popping sound. I've tried removing the battery and holding the power button for a minute to drain any excess, didn't work though. Also when the laptop is plugged in the charging light still works, so it's not completely dead. What else can I try?

I have a Toshiba laptop that shut off by itself and won't turn back on. The LED lights will not even come on. I have only had it for 2 years but I use it a lot. The warranty is no good anymore so that is not an option. When I plug the power cord into the wall it still doesn't work so I know its not the battery and I the power cord I have works with an older Toshiba laptop (broken beyond repair) so I know its not that. I have tried the method where you take out the battery and hold the power button down but it still doesn't work.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Windows XP!!!

Alright, this is the most strange issue that has ever occured while fixing a computer for me..

My friend has a toshiba laptop, 4gb ram.. Dual 2.66Ghz processors, amidon or whatever.. sorry im half asleep

It runs fine, untill he does something that requires graphical drivers i guess, He used to be able to play World of Warcraft fine, we play it together every day, and as of yesterday after 5-10minutes of player his computer just shut off without a warning

When he tries to turn it back on, when he clicks start windows (normally, safe mode, etc..etc..) it all does the same thing, just shuts back off

If he waits like 10-15minutes then turns it back on it works fine untill he starts a video or something like WoW.

What would be the cause of this, over-heating even though the laptop feels cool at the time it is happening, graphical cards (If so, why would it prevent it from starting back up)

Any help and ways to fix would be greatly appreciated

HP Pavillion dv2000 (dv2025LA)

It was full of viruses, so I removed the HDD, put it on my computer and cleaned it up. Put it back on the laptop, started up fine, but I decided I should better format it. During the windows installation, it did not detect the HDD, so I pressed the power button until it turned off.

Now when I press the power button, the only that happens is that a little lightning bolt LED next to the HDD and Power LEDs flashes twice and nothing happens.

I removed the battery, let it sit for 10 minutes, tried again, same results. Removed the HDD, tried to boot it like this, no luck. What is going on here? What does that little bolt mean, and why does it flash twice?

In February while using my laptop (Alienware M18x r2) it turned off immediately without any warning while it was plugged in to charge. There wasn't any notice that the laptop was going to turn off or that I should plug in the laptop to avoid losing any unsaved data. It won't turn back on with or without the charger. When the charger is plugged into a socket the charger light comes on but charger light it goes off when I plug the charger into the laptop and the laptop won't charge or turn on. I should also mention that the first time I tried to plug in the laptop with the battery still inside there was a spark. I removed the battery, plugged in the charger to the laptop and it sounded like the plug/jack short circuited. I was not using a surge protector at the time. I have no idea why this happened or how to fix it. One recommendation was to replace the spark plug but I'm not convinced that is the problem.

That is probably what happened. The port on the motherboard shorted out. It needs to be replaced. Some are easy an some re hard to replace.

Hey all, I certainly hope someone can help me with my issue. I have searched and searched and have continuously run in circles trying to get this resolved.

I have a Dell M6300 Laptop with XP Pro and a couple of months ago an interesting problem arose.

Whenever the laptop goes into sleep/standby, it will not come back on. Here is an example of what happens:

1.) I close the laptop lid.
2.) Laptop goes into standby/sleep
3.) I re-open the lid and press a key to turn it on.
4.) Laptop lights up as if trying to load back up, HD and Fan make noise.
5.) Then it stops. HD and Fan stop.

The only way for the laptop to come back on is to hold down the power button for several seconds and turn it back on.

Please understand that the laptop IS on when I attempt this, it just can't seem to get out of standby.

**Here is what I have done so far to try to resolve this issue (but with no luck )**

I have rolled back drivers. Reinstalled drivers. Cleaned all traces of drivers and reinstalled them all over again.

I have checked my boot.ini file for conflicts.

I have fiddled around with the power settings and hibernation settings.

I have done nearly all I can short of a reformat but since this is a work laptop with a lot of valuable information, that is a LAST resort.

I hope someone can help me!

Thanks in advance!

Once again the computer impaired one comes to the table of knowledge...

I shut down my PC, fans stop, lights go out. About 6-8 mins later it starts up again, been doing this for four days now. I ran a virus scan which came out clean. The only way to keep it turned off is to unplug it. The only tinkering I've done lately is to try to open a port on my router (which I didn't get done, forgot password and reset button doesn't work). I don't think my PC is set to hibernate, I have never used that feature.

Hello everyone, I have an HP Envy j100t which I purchased in 2014. ever since yesterday it's been starting but the screen remains pitch black, no display at all. It won't get to start up page, just remains a blank dark screen even though the power light is on and there's no battery issue because it was on charge all night and the AC adopter is still in.   I keep on having to get to get to the BIOS recovery screen, letting that update, and then it proceeds to restart. However when it restarts, it never gets to start up and there is the same dark screen- no display.  I have to always update BIOS, take out the battery and AC adapter, put them back in, and then it will start. Or sometimes even that whole process might not restart it.  Please help!

Last night, my computer turned off while I was using it. It wouldn't turn back on, and everything else on the surge protector was working fine. Since I've had problems with power supplies before, I turned the switch to the off position, removed the power cord, and let it cool off, in case it had overheated. When I tried to turn it back on, the power light and the LEDs on the inside blinked on and then back off. They were on for maybe a tenth of a second. During that time, there's no sound of my computer trying to turn on or anything, just the lights. Does anybody have any idea what this might be, or where to begin to troubleshoot??

btw, I know I mentioned LEDs, but I don't have any extensive mods, no overclocking, etc. Just pretty lights.

TIA for any help!!

I'm baffled.

Had to reinstall Windows XP. It appears there are issues with SP2 involving the video graphics card and the sound. Now I'm stuck. I thought that if I chose "do not use this device" under "Device usage" on the display adaptor tab, that it would pick the right adaptor.

Anyway, my screen went blank and I tried to reboot in safe mode and it sticks at mup.sys. I disabled mup and it now sticks at "nid" something or other.

I got the bright idea to use "Windows Narrator" to try and reenable the adaptor but I think the reinstall or the SP2 killed my sound.

Now I'm really stuck. Is there a way to reenable VGA adaptor from the command prompt in recovery mode?

Hi, a few weeks ago I came home a few hours after having used my computer in the morning to find it off. It would not turn on. I unplugged everything and took off the side panel and found the PSU still warm. I read around on similar postings on this forum and decided it was my PSU. I bought a new one. Still didn't turn on. However, the f-lock led on my keyboard was lit up when the switch on the PSU was flipped on. So I e-mailed my motherboard company, Epox. I recieved some directions that would get rid of electricity still in the board such as holding the power button down for 10 seconds, setting the cmos to 2-3 for a few seconds and putting it back onto 1-2. One of the directions was to remove the round cmos battery, which i did not do because I was unable to reach it enough to remove it. I also took it completely apart and replugged everything in. No such luck. So, I bought another mobo, one just like it but the chipset was nforce3 250 instead of nforce3 ultra. Supported the same hardware, though. Still will not work. So, now i'm wondering if it's the power button on my case. I am probably going to plug my friend's case's power button into my mobo and see if it turns on.
>>>>To summarize-
1)Computer mysteriously turns off.
2)Buy new PSU.
3)Fiddle around with old mobo, but end up buying new one.
4) Still will not turn on. And when I say won't turn on, i mean nothing turns on, moves, makes noise, or lights up.

An easy way to troubleshoot the case power switch is to completely disconnect it from your motherboard. Then take a regular screwdriver, and just quickly touch (short) the two pins that the case's power switch usually connect to.

Hopefully your system will fire up, and you'll know you have a dead power switch!

I've just recently had this happen, but I've been here enough to know I may have contracted a nasty.

Last week my system started hanging up and plain not responding. My wireless aircard refused to work in a manner like it was telling me that it was already in use, when it wasn't even plugged in! I couldn't get much to work right so I rebooted in safe mode, ran a couple of scans, which found nothing, rebooted in normal mode and my aircard was working again. Yay.
It worked normal except for the Windows pop up box that says you are offline kept popping up, and I couldn't close it unless I connected to the net via my aircard. Now my AVG has been switched off and I can't get it to turn back on, and my surfing via aircard is noticably slower. And, my power icon in the tray has gone away.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P-105, 32 bit processor, Vista Home Premium, SP 1.
I also have A Squared, AdAware, AVG (free edition), Malware Bytes, Spybot, SuperAntiSpyware installed.

I use this laptop for work and now I'm afraid to put in passwords, account numbers, etc.

Hi guys!

New here, just put Windows 7 on my laptop on Sunday. I'm really liking it thus far.

One thing I noticed maybe just today. When the screen shuts off due to time or the lid being closed, it doesn't seem to want to turn back on. I can put into standby and bring it back out and it works just fine. But, I'd rather not have to do that all the time.

It's a Dell Inspiron E1505 with a ATI Radeon X1400 video card if that helps at all.

If you need more info, let me know. Thanks!

I took pictures last night & this morning, but this afternoon - when I turn the camera on the lens goes in and out 3 or 4 times then I get a message on the screen that says turn camera off and back on. I have done that repeatedly, took out the battery, plugged the bettery into its charger, nothing works. I got this for Christmas just a couple years ago, so its not that old. What is going on? I need an answer ASAP. I have flown across the coutnry to see my brandnew grand son for the holiday weekend for the first time & now I can't take pictures! HELP! Please write sallies2 at the yahoo.

A:My cybershot won't turn back on

Sony camera problem.

This could be happening for several reasons. The camera could have a software /firmware fault, or it could be a problem with something preventing the lens from moving as it should.
But it's just as likely to be the Li-ion battery not holding a charge as it used to.
If you have a mains adapter, try that instead of the battery, see if it works then.
You may need to buy a new battery, as they don't last for more than a couple of years, especially with heavy use.
If you can get the screen on using the mains adapter, go into the menu and do a 'factory reset'. Take the memory stick out first.
All faults are repairable, but you would do well to get a quote first, as a new camera may be cheaper, (unfortunately).
The pictures on your memory stick are not affected by camera faults, as a rule, but if you have another one, try it, just in case there is a problem with the edge connector on it.

Recently when I installed the GTX 750 Ti into a pre-built PC (HP Compaq 6000 Pro MT) the PC would not boot. After leaving the power supply plugged in after I tried many times to turn on the PC the fans started to run at max power. Now whenever I plug in the power supply the fans run at full power the disk drive works and whatever is plugged into the PC like a keyboard or something it works. But when I press the power button the computer does not boot. I've tried to uninstall the GPU and it won't boot. I've unplugged everything from the MB. I never shocked the computer either.

A:After installing GPU PC will not turn back on.

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphic card uses 60W and requires a minimum of a 300W power supply.
The HP Compaq 6000 Pro Microtower PC has a 320W power supply.

I don't believe insufficient wattage is part of the problem.
It's my guess you damaged something or didn't properly seat the graphic card or didn't properly connect it to the monitor.

Before I found all of the USeful info here on the
MSblast virus I was trying to fix the problem of the RPC restarting my computer..

It got to the point where I disabled the RPC in the COMPUTER MANAGEMENT Tool under services for my one and only hardware profile.. DOh..not a smart move...

Now when I start up, either in normal or safe mode,
most of my critical windows services just dont run.

My question is this :

Is there a way to get these services started up or enable them again so I can run windows normally and apply the MSblast fix.?

Basically, I think XP needs the RPC service to even consider allowing me to enable it again..
Thanks for any help.

A:I disabled RPC ..doh...any help to turn it back on..

I am adding to this forum because this is May 4, 2016 and the problem has been noted on the forum since October 2015. If I had read the forum prior to purchasing, I would not have purchased this laptop or I would have investigated to be certain the problem has been fixed. I am sooooo disappointed in HP.I really don't know what to do now.

Hi. I have a Epson Workforce WF-3640 printer. I was in the middle of printing out my son's term paper, when I heard it stop working. Noticed it was off. Tried to turn back on. Nothing. Check cord to make sure connected securely at back of printer and at outlet. Also check for a tripped breaker. And nothing. I just bought this brand new from Best Buy in February. Please help.

A:Printer won't turn back on

If the printer is getting any power I would try:

A different outlet.
A different power cord.
Checking to see if the printer is still under warranty with the manufacturer and/or Best Buy.
