Monitor Problems, Response Problems, Lots of Problems

Q: Monitor Problems, Response Problems, Lots of Problems

Hi This is my first time posting, and I have a lot of things causing problems with my computer, but to start off, here are my specs.

Windows 10 Pro
Intel Core i7-4770s CPU @ 3.10GHz
8 Gb Ram Corsaire Vengence 4x2
64 Bit
AMD Radeon HD 7700 GDDR5 1Gb (two of them w/ crossfire)
2 Tb 7200 Rpm Seagate HDD
z87-g45 Gaming Motherboard
Case: r5 Gaming Full size case
Power Supply: Corsair AX860
Fans: Rosewill Hyper Silence CPU fan, 2 stock front fans, 1 stock in back

So, to start off, I built this computer myself 2 years ago, and it has been running steadily without too many problems along the way, but earlier last year it began to have some much bigger problems.

Issue 1. Monitor Issues
I say this is a monitor issue, but i really doubt it has anything to do with the monitors them selves. What is happening every once in a while (about 3 times a week) the screens of my monitors will cut to black (it doesn't matter what I'm doing) and stay black for a few seconds before revealing the task bar at the bottom of the screen, and then the rest of my desktop slowly reveals itself. I've tried updating my video card drivers, but that hasn't helped.

Issue 2. Keyboard and Mouse Become unresponsive (System isn't frozen however)
Sometimes if I leave my pc idling in the lock screen, the keyboard will stop working, and when I come back, I can't log in. I can tell my computer is not frozen because the slideshow in the lock screen keeps moving and I can move my mouse (but not click with it.)What I found interesting in these occasions was that the Caps Lock key still lit up when I pressed it. I have tried unplugging and plugging back in the mouse and keyboard, but all that does is make the keyboard unusable (I can't press the caps lock) and the mouse doesn't show up anymore. Both Issue 1 and 2 are only fixed with a system reboot.

Issue 3. System Freezes
This problem happens the least out of the 3, and happens out of nowhere (like the other two.) I might be working on something, and when I look back to my computer, it is completely frozen. I can't move the mouse or press any buttons, and the task manager has stopped updating its processes (I keep it open at all times.) This issue is also only fixed with a reboot.

These are some of the issues that are most prominent with my system, I hope someone will be able to help me with this. I can provide more clarity if need be.
Thank You

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.)

Hey I've been having major problems with my Laptop.
Every ten or so minutes when my McAfee 2010 security suite disables real-time scanning it'll re-enable itself causing a lot of alarming pop-up boxes which is slowing my computer. Not sure whats causing it but it seems like malware.
Next theres this process which starts at windows start-up (DivxUpdate.exe), I don't think this is actually a part of divx. I've read somewhere that it is a form of autorun malware, it consumes 99% of my cpu majorly slowing down my computer, I think I may have similar malware on here that are problematic.
Also my firefox frequently say that there's an unresponsive script which temporarily freezes my whole computer and when I finally manage to get to task manager I have to end the process which seems to be using a regular amount of cpu and memory.
I made a topic exactly 1 month ago but nobody answered so I thought I'd make a new one seeing as the problems are progressing and building up.

Thanks for any help I'm provided with.

Hi, my name's Katie and I'm having major virus/spyware,adware,malware removal issues! I

have a lot of different things going on here, and can't make any sense of it. I tried

following other people's solved threads, but they didn't solve my issues, so I guess I need

personalized help. I have Windows security running (well, I usually do when it's working

properly,) and I run Ad-Aware and Spybot regularly, but it appears that they cannot solve

my issue. Anyway, here's a list of things that have been happening to my computer since the

virus happened...

1. I KNOW the virus was contracted in AIM. An IM came in from a friend with only a link. It

didn't look suspicious to me, so I clicked it, and all of a sudden I had IMEd everyone in

my buddy list the link, and received about a million IMs back (didn't have time to read

them before My Computer's virtual memory ran out and crashed AIM on me.

2.When the computer starts up, sometimes a default background appears before the logon

screen with the user accounts appears.

3.After logon, the same thing in general happens every time. Spybot comes up with a bunch

of messages saying that there is a registry change to my homepage or something else

happening. I deny it, and it denies it over and over again to seemingly no avail. A .txt

file appears on the desktop. I have never opened this file, don't know what it is, and

Hi,
 
I sure need help  --- I do not know how to deal with viruses, trojans, spyware, etc.
 
My husband and I were traveling. We had to use public Wifi places to check our email on our laptop. when we got home and checked our email accounts on our laptops, we found some really weird looking email messages. I 'think' my husband opened one that had his name in the Subject line, but we deleted all he other ones that looked strange. We did not open those emails, just deleted them.
 
Now all 3 of our computers are doing really weird things. I have run scan after scan after scan, both downloaded one and online ones. Sometimes they find problems and fix them. sometimes the scans find nothing. Yet our problems just seem to be getting worse and worse. I DESPERATELY need a lot of help.
 
I know it would be very confusing to try to work on all 3 of our computers at once so maybe we can start with my husband's desktop computer.

Ok, I have lots of XP problems:

Can't open My computer from the desktop, the computer just locks up whilst attempting to open it, showing me the animated torch, saying it is looking for files.

The computer is running really slow, locking up and crashing programs for no apparent reason.

Cant access the drop down box (shortcut key F4) in windows explorer/applications/anywhere.

Internet explorer refuses to do anything if I type a web address without the http:// into the address box. It worked before, but now it isn't for some reason.

Finally, when I restart windows, it locks up for anything up to 5 minutes when it comes back up. The windows bar with the start button on, when I pass my mouse over it, the pointer turns to an hourglass and I am unable to do anything unti it sorts itself out.

I have tried running several anti virus programs, including AVG, Mcafee and Norton. Only AVG came up with a virus, 'Dialler'. I cleared this and it didn't make any difference. I alos tried system restore from several points, but each time it told me that it was unable to restore.

If ANYONE can give me any help at all, I would be extremely grateful.

Yours,

Wayne Donnelly.

I have had repeated problems with my computer freezing/crashing. It?s a HP Pavilion 500-123ea, 8GB memory. sfc/scannow does not complete. Dism ?CheckHealth? is OK.

I have referred to the tenforums tutorial 7808 on Dism repair (last title I had was ?Repair Windows Update?). This has instructions to download a ISO file.

I have been struggling with this. On first attempt, the word I got was ?can not open file as archive?, ie that?s the install.wim file.

Second attempt I got ?source files could not be found?.

Thirdly, I tried another download attempt and after 20 minutes nothing had happened.

The download seemed to want to default to the C drive, although I had preferably been trying to get it to a removable F drive USB disk. No particular success either way.

I have tried to be careful with the install:wim syntax.

I suppose the diagnosis would seem to be that I have somehow ended up with some corrupted files.

Is this DISM RestoreHealth tool usable? Am I likely to get anywhere with it? Anyway, as before I much appreciate previous advice on this forum and I just don?t know if there?s anything else I can try.

A:Problems with Response from DISM

Hello jdcallison,
Actually RestoreHealth from DISM is somewhat complex.You cannot repair a 10586 build with 10240 ISO, which I hope isn't a case here.
The best option in your case would be to do a repair upgrade, which keeps everything and reinstall windows.

Are there diagnostics and such that he can run on XP to check for anything that might be causing his problems? Things like SFC, scandisk, etc? Are there basic things he can be checking before calling Gateway? I will have him defrag just in case that might be a factor.

Hi, about 2 days ago I turned on my pc and many weird things started happening...

Okay, so I've been getting this problem while connecting to my college dorm's network. Whenever I plug in an ethernet without modifying some settings, my computer doesn't even respond to the cable being plugged in. Going into my LAN adapter settings, I tested if a cable was even being recognized, and it was not.

The first thing I did was install a new driver for my LAN adapter, which at first did nothing. Then I started fiddling around with something called Link Speed and Duplex Settings, because it's description said matching these settings to the network's can sometimes invoke a response. Originally set at 'auto configuration', I changed these settings to 100 mbps and got a response, but didn't connect to the network. All sorts of problems come up like "Didn't recognize a DHCP server, Windows obtained automatic IP address settings". It will try to connect to the network, but ultimately takes 2 minutes or so to come up with these errors.

So next I tried the 10 mbps setting, and for some reason, this makes everything work completely fine without issues. Except I can now only get extremely slow internet speeds in exchange for internet actually working. I also tried buying a $15 NIC card to go into my unused PCI slot, but my computer won't even accept the new NIC. Booting up my computer will make it go through this continuous power restart cycles without actually displaying anything on screen.

In the last few months I've been having alot of trouble with my computer.

First I started noticing slow loading times. For example, windows would load really slowly (it would be on the loading screen at startup for 5 minutes), installing programs would take at least five times as long as usual and it would take ages for my games to load. I scanned for viruses but there weren't any. I reformatted my PC and it seemed to fix the problem. However, after installing and playing a game (Call of Duty 4) for a few hours it started playing up again. Same problem; slow loading times. I reformatted once again. I played the same game again, and it froze. I tried restarting but it just blue screened at the windows loading screen...I reformatted once again and haven't installed the game since.

I move my PC around alot. I take it back and forth between houses every few weeks. About 50% of the time I've done this it starts playing up again. For example, last week when I moved my PC to another house I tried starting it up but I would get an error saying something about a missing DLL, and it told me to contact the system administrator or replace the DLL. I formatted my C drive partition (I created another partition last time I reformatted because I was sick of losing all my important files) to get it working again. Most problems I've had when I've moved my computer have prevented me from starting it up, but I didn't always get this DLL error. Another one I ... Read more

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista and can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:

mdsched.exe

Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.

I can already tell that his is going to be one huge post. I've been having many problems with my PC. One of the major ones was the unexpected restarts. I went into the control pannel and disabled the auto restart, but now i just get this huge blue screen that says my drivers are messed up or something or another. My friend next door said it could be something about a memory leak or something. Also whenever I try to install/play games they always crash, and im wondering if these two problems are linked in someway. Hopefully you guys can help me out because im clueless on what to try next. I've formated, and still get the problem.....

Well I will say first off I have been haveing lots of problems with this pc its about 8 years old. I had to have it fixed couple years ago, corrupt files, so had a shop pull files, and then refreshed xp, and had to replace power supply. But in proccess my cd rom won't work, will not see any cd you put in, I have left it alone for now. But I have been wanting to speed it up some. My stepdaughter uses it and would like it run a little faster for her. It has a 256mb ddr pc3200 stick in it now I think its on a 80g HD. My question is there any other memory that is compatible with the ddr pc3200? I have a 128mb pc 100 stick, would it work with it? I tried tweaking it from a overclockers website useing the services, but ended up killing the use on the internet on, so I had to go back and figure out where I messed up. It had something to do with the RPC, I think it was, and now runs slow again. Is there a easy solution to speed it up a little without sacrificing smoething else? Or would it be better to find another pc3200 memory stick and installing it?

In the past I've had a few problems here and there, and I've seen these Hijackthis log post forums but I never thought I'd have to post a log on one! These problems are pretty bad though.

For starters, I usually can't open the dialog box to save or open files. That started a few days ago. Now, Task Manager won't open and I get fake windows security alerts about spyware and viruses. I also get a series of fake command windows that open/close fast with the window name "sysrlb32" or something like that and then give me an error about LoadLibrary Manager crashing. I would really appreciate any help on this. Here is a HijackThis log.

I have a laptop with XP Pro SP3 and up until last night its been running fine. Last night I turned on a movie and I got blue screened. So I turned it back on and started the movie again. Fifteen minutes into it I heard the windows error sound and my computer restarted on its own. Again I turned it on and played the movie. It finally finished and I went to sleep. When I woke up this morning I had a windows bubble that said my computer was infected with spyware. It said to click to fix it, so I did. Nothing happened. So I go to do a virus scan and find out my anti-virus software (McAfee) is disabled and won't enable. So I do a scan with adaware and it find nothing. I do a scan with McAfee and my computer restarts in the middle. When it turns back on, it takes about 5 or 6 mins to boot (it normally takes one or two at most). I download HJT to try to post a log but it won't open, even in safe mode. I tried to do a system restore but apparently it deleted all my restore points up to about an hour ago, so I can't even do that. I have no idea what do do, please help.

Before we get started, I'd just like to say that my computer is really messed up. Just recently i think my router messed up, because the internet is now only accessible on this computer, and not on the other one connected with it. (Yes, I've tried many many ways to fix that.) To add on to that, the internet on this computer is considerably slowed. Also, I am pretty sure that i have a browser hijacker. I can't click a link on google without getting redirected to '101links.com' or something like that.

Other problems include applications disconnecting themselves (exiting without my permission?), greyed out display options, and the inability to access my windows firewall. (The application tells me that I do not have the permission, or that 'due to an unexplainable problem' I can't access it.)

After many virus scans, nothing has been found, besides the everyday deletions and such. There is nothing much else I can think of doing, so I have attached extra.txt. Hopefully you can help.

Hi,

My laptop has serious issue. Running XP home edition.

When i turn it on, none of the taskbars/icons load. Through task manager i can enter explorer.exe and get it to load.

From then i can't load certain programs, such as itunes, but others work fine such as labrokes (for poker). I tried to uninstall sophos but when i double click add/remove programs nothing loads. I downloaded AVG and installed that but again nothing loads when i double click the icon or try loading it through 'run'.

Not really sure what to do - i'm sure i have a virus but i can't load the virus scanner to remove it!

Hope you can help, thanks in advance.

my computer is having lots of issues. the main problem is that explorer closes down by itself, says "internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close" Sometimes Dr Watson Postmortem Debugger comes up afterwards with the same message, sometimes it doesn't.
The other main problem is the blue screen that comes up at least 5-10 times a day with a lot of writing on it but in bold letters it says MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION I could wrte down the whole screen if you need me to.At that point I can't do anything but turn it off and back on. It happens sometimes when I'm just on the internet-any sites but i have noticed it more on youtube and yahoo music, while music is playing, or on any sites where you can leave "comments" about people's pictures orblogs, or news stories. It also goes to the blue screen when I try to run spybot or AVG. Any advice you can give me I would appreciate very much I saved all my pictures onto photobucket, cause I just have this feeling soon I won't even be able to turn on the computer

My system is full of spyware and other viruses, its an outdated system with a 40gb hard drive, 1.8ghz processor and 512 mb ram. My hidden files are not visible (i've tried folder options and all) and my D drive (on which I've installed XP SP2) is always out of space, I've hardly got 378 megs on it, its a roughly 10gb partition but the fact is that i have not got anything of that size on it. I deleted some files and moved other files of like 700 mb but in vain, whatever i do there just isn't any space left. Also i can't open my hard drive partitions by double clicking on them it gives me the "open with" dialog box. And i once installed a bluesoliel bluetooth usb dongle with my system, but after some time bluesoliel started hanging up and slowing my pc, so i uninstalled it but now whenever i start the system the, a found new harware wizard starts up saying that it has detected the bluetooth dongle, but it isn't even connected to it. My system takes a lot of time to start and the date is always set to 9th octber 2002. And there are like 5 svchost.exe running. The registry is all wrong and when i open startup in msconfig it shows me some programs which i have uninstalled a long time back. When i open add remove programs it says that there is a yahoo address auto complete but it doesn't get removed.


Please help me and recommend some authentic anti virus and antispyware program that i could install.

i've always had some hardware problems, my computer tends to lock up a lot randomly. even if i'm running only one program sometimes it'll freeze.
but lately a few of my programs have been acting strange on start-up. my firefox does not stay still the screen it jumps around as if im scrolling when i'm not. my trillian contact list won't come up. i've tried re-installing but it doesn't help. i'm not really sure whether i need to troubleshoot these programs (and how to do that) or do something with my computer. i have good antivirus software and adware. do you think i should reformat my hard drive?

A:Lots Of Problems

Do you really mean always? Like since you've owned it it's never worked quite right? Or is this something that developed over time and is now really prominent? Or did it all start suddenly after working well for a while?

I cleaned out a virus on my OS yesterday, so I am sure it is gone yet, but the damage it dealt is still there. Currently, I am unable to access task manager; as a matter of fact, I don't think it's even there anymore. The internet has been disabled and administrative privileges have been removed as well. Also, when I try to run regedit or system restore, it gives me the group policy warning, but I'm unable to locate a way to fix that as well. Either way, it looks pretty bleak at the moment. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi -

You are running Vista SP1 and need to update to SP2. Given the lack of Windows Updates + the mounting problems you are experiencing due to the aftermath of the viral attack, I suggest that you backup your personal profile folder files - Docs, Music, Pics, etc... then re-install Vista.

Regards. . .

Hi and welcome

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Hi Brookbend,

I think there is some sort of Virus in your computer. Did you tried running the antivirus software .. If yes what is the software you are using?

Did you tried checking the computer in Safe mode ?

Please let me know what changes you have done before this issue started.

Hi there,

I am fairly certain I have acquired some sort of Malware infestation. My computer is having all types of glitches, including nearly all the programs disappearing from my start menu. I have attached an HJT log and would be really appreciative for some advice.

Thanks!
Ryan

Additionally, my computer will just lag -- all processes grind to a halt and I can't even press CTRL+ALT+DELETE. And the most recent time I restarted my computer a handful of "ghost" icons appeared on the desktop -- there isn't much rhyme or reason to them either. Some are temp files, there is a .ini file, a shortcut to a program, and some word/excel documents. And also when I produced the HJT log and saved it a game booted up (this happened several times.) There is definitely something wonky going on.

Please help! Thanks so much!

Whew. Lots of problems to list.
1. FireFox
After a few months of using it, I found that half the time pages don't fully load, but sometiems if you reload in a new tab, then it will succeed. Should I uninstall, then reinstall with the latest version? Avant browser and Internet Explorer work though.
Could it be because of the resources that FireFox uses? I have already tried clearing my cache etc.

2. System Idle Proccess
It fluxuates every second. It goes from 0% to 93%. Very strange, and it is not accounted for in the total CPU Usage.

3. Extremely High CPU Usage
I am getting extremely high CPU usage. Anywhere from 70-100, while my usual is around 0%.

4. I am using SideBar, it displays usage
It displays that my disk usage goes from 0-100, a proccess as simple as copying a 1 gig worth of files takes 10 minutes. Usually my disk is at most 10%.

5. Memory Usage very high
It's around 63% (all the time), not even including when I run a program (can shoot up to 100% often).

6. Just a quick question, what is Swap Memory?

7. Freezes and Crashes
I am getting many freezes lately, and my Explorer.exe (important part of windows), has crashed about 15 times within the past week. A very noticable problem.

8. I have scanned...
I have used Kaspersky AV, Avast AV, Zone Alarm AV, Zone Alarm Firewall, NAV, NIS, AdAware, Spybot, BPS Anti-Spyware and more. All viruses and spyware deleted, but problems persist.

I suggest going to the security forum and reading all sticky posts and general information. Post a HJT log because of the symptoms you describe it seems all the AV programs have missed something - which is very possible because they are all far from being perfect.

I wouldnt overclock to take care of this problem.

Once your malware problems are solved i would start a new thread in the hardware forum - thats where you'll get the best advice considering OCing.

Hello,You don't have even an antivirus or a firewall installed on your system. That is very risky!First of all, disable your spysweeper, because it can interfere with the fixes.When you enable it again, make sure you allow everything in your spysweeper, because those are the changes you made yourself, so don't let spysweeper block it again.* Uninstall Media Access via add/remove programs.Reboot.* Download: HosterUnzip hoster to an own folder, eg C:\Hoster Start Hoster.exe, click 'Restore Original Hosts' and click OK. * Perform an onlinescan with housecall and/or Etrust and let it delete everything it is finding.Download http://www.trojaner-info.de/cgi-bin/downlo...gi?file=sphjfixUnzip it to your desktop.Start SpSeHjfix and click "Start disinfection"Let it finish the job.Restore your websettings: Go to start > controlpanel > Internetoptions > Tab Programs.Click: "Restore Websettings"When done, post a new hijackthislog together with the log that SpSeHjfix produced.

have you tried to boot up in safe mode and running these?
Get CWshredder and run it too. found here
Also, another Antivirus to try is TrendMicro's housecall. found Here.
It's a free one-time scan, but is good. When it finds a virus, you can click on the name and it will bring up a page on it which usually contains additional removal instructions.

As for hijackthis, once you start it, select scan. (doesn't take but a few seconds) Then select save log. save it where you can find it again. it opens with textpad. copy whats in that log and post it in the hijackthis section on this site. Those guys (and gals..lol) are good there.

Hi there. I'm trying to get my dad's laptop back to "normal" working condition. It's less than a year old - Dell studio 1737 running Windows Vista Home Premium SP2. Processor reads: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53 GHz with 4GB Ram and 64-bit OS.

Dad is a "clicker" - meaning he clicks on anything and everything. I'm trying to break him of that, but so far...well...he's having a lot of issues. I have no idea what he's downloaded. My brother *thinks* he fixed it by downloading other junk that didn't work, and now it's worse than before. It's running quite slow, IE closes on itself nearly every time you open it, random pop-ups when you navigate away from the homepage, etc. We use Dell Remote Access when he's away from home in case we run into something I can't talk him through - but we've had a ton of trouble with it and now we can't uninstall it - it gets hung up. I've tried to repair it with no luck, either. Last night I ran AdAware...and now I'm here. You've been so helpful in the past. Any ideas?!

There is also a dell backup thing I don't know what is for. It asks every day if he wants to backup - sometimes he says yes, sometimes no. Is it necessary?? Seems like a lot of wasted space. I have a large iomega external drive I back up his machine on every 3 months...

Oh - I also moved 90GB of movies he shot for his business last night to free up some space - but he has a... Read more
