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.)

The best thing to do is take both your computer and iphone to an apple store. They have specialists in store all the time to help with these kind of things. I think the service is also free of charge. I took mine down to the store and they sorted my problem in under 30 minutes. They really are great!!

I am running Win7/Pro x64. My System Spec is in my Profile.

I do not have iTunes installed on my desktop. I do have an iPhone 5, a hand-me-down from my son.

Yesterday the phone needed to be charged. I attached it to a USB port. I was asked by the phone if I trusted my desktop. I said yes. I was told that there were no new images on the phone to import, a fact I already knew. I've encountered this dialog before. It seems to be part of the procrustean Apple way of computing.

What troubles me is that a process started about the time I plugged in the phone. At a rate of 5-10 files/sec the 'modified' date was changed on over 3,500 jpg files on my data drive. I've not analyzed the order in which they were processed but suspect that it was A-Z on the file names and also on folder names.

Could this behavior result from iTunes running its 'sync' process? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening again?

If we have no Apple OS experts on this forum, does anyone know of an 'Apple forum' that is as respected as sevenforums is in the Windows world?

I just got the new iPhone 4S and I have a 3GS as my old phone with no way to transfer my contacts. I was told I could save a backup of my 3GS to itunes, then load the backup onto my 4S.

Well my 3GS won't backup, it keeps saying "iTunes could not backup the iphone because an error occurred" without any error code. I've wiped my old backup, I've cleared sync history. I'm using a PC with itunes with the latest itunes version 10.5.

What can I do to get my contacts over to the new phone?

I have a Bluetooth headset I'm trying to get connected on Windows 7. I have a Bluetooth USB hub connected which seems to work fine. The headset can be seen, but when I connect it said no drivers found and fails.

I suspect part of the problem is that it's not asking me for a pair code. How do I enter the pair code in Windows 7? I know how I did it in XP, but I don't know in 7. The default pair code is 0000 and I need to enter that.

It's a PnP device so there are no drivers. This setup worked just fine in XP.

A:Bluetooth pairing?

Anyone have any ideas? I've seen the pair code window come up sometimes, but I can't figure out how to get it to come back up.

Hello there,
I'm having a laptop with Core i3 2350M processor and was suprised when I read on Notebookcheck.net that this processor has an intergrated Intel HD3000 graphics card inside it. At the moment I'm using AMD Radeon HD7470M 1GB dedicated graphics card and I was wondering is there any way to enable that Intel integrated GPU to work along with the AMD card? I understand that I can't pair them with Crossfire because one is Intel one AMD but I think I read somewhere that you can run 2 different gpus without cf or sli but they will work different or something like that (one will just take a load off from another)...That's why I'm here asking you can this be done or I'm just hallucinating...

A:Pairing two different cards

I don't think it can be done. But I think I heard somewhere that the integrated GPU inside the CPU helps with video rendering, but I could very well be wrong about that.

I'm looking at the Motorola SB6121 vs SB6141. The first harnesses the power of DOCSIS 3.0 technology to bond up to four downstream while the second has paring/bonding of 8 downstream. I have 105Mbs with Comcast. The first goes to 160Mbs the second to 345Mbs.- both under my maximum.

Does anyone see any value in getting the higher SB6141? As long as my Comcast input is limited what difference if any would it make?

Thanks guys

A:Modem Pairing

SB6141 is just more future proof as internet speeds increase. Even the SB6141 is getting old as newer modems are coming out with 16 and 24 downstream. Given that you have Comcast, you may want the SB6141 as they are changing present speed tiers. In a few markets already, people with 105 plans have seen the speeds bumped up to 150. I know in Washington State they are working for the speed change by the end of the year or early 2015.

I have a Hp Omen running Windows 8.1 Pro. I recently purchased a receiver (Pioneer SC-LX901) for my stereo system which has bluetooth capabilities. I want to play music that is on my laptop through my stereo system. I have no problem putting the receiver in pairing mode thus making it discoverable. My laptop sees the receiver and asks me to pair, so I don't believe that the receiver is causing the problem, however when I click the "pair" box I continue getting the following message "That didn't work. Try again later and make sure your device is discoverable." I have tried this many times over several days. Can someone help?

Hello, I've recently purchased a USB-250 adapter off amazon.com and was hoping to use it to pair the 520 to my PC.

When I set my PC to search for my headset(after turning it on of course), it gives me a message stating that no devices were found.
However, it works(pairs) perfectly fine with my T-Mobile MDA.

Hey everyone ^_^
Right, so i've upgraded my PC recently and it's running everything nicely, the only problem I have is a degree of stuttering in games like F.E.A.R and BF2142, Framerates and other things are all good but I know my RAM is letting the system down.

My spec is:

AMD Athlon 64 3700+
HIS X1900XT 256GDDR3
1 gig of branded Ram (might be Crucial, but not sure, it begins with C) DDR400
450W PSU by Jeantech
Asrock SATA 2 Mobo

Now, i've gone and ordered some high quality Ballistix Ram from Crucial.com (2x 512 DDR400) but my worry is that my old Ram will stop it from running to it's full potential because of different CAS latencies and timings etc.

So my question is, what would be the benefits of getting 4x 512 Ballistix over using the 2 lower quality RAM and the 2 Ballistix ones together? will I notice much difference at all or is there no difference? I was only wondering since running different modules together tends to make the higher ones scale down to the slower ones, but i'm not sure if this applys if they are both the same speed (DDR 400)

Thanks a lot everyone.

I have just purchased a JBL Charge 3 Bluetooth speaker.
My laptop is a Dell Inspiron running Windows 7 Home Premium.
I have had to buy a USB Bluetooth adaptor V4.0 for my laptop as although the software appeared to be there, the hardware wasn't.  However with help I have got it up and running and can easily pair my Samsung tablet, a Sony Z5 smartphone and a pair of Kitsound Manhattan headphones.
The tablet and the smartphone also easily pair to the speakers, no problem at all and the sound is fantastic!
My problems start when attempting to pair the speakers with my laptop.
I can see the speakers in Devices & Printers.  In the Properties it tells me that the drivers for this device are not installed (Code 28).  If I double click on the device the information is repeated and in addition it states that "There is no driver selected for the device information set or element" and "To find a driver for this device click on Update Driver"
"Update Driver" button is greyed out.
If I right click on the Speaker icon and bring up the menu and hit Playback Devices the JBL Charge 3 is not listed so cannot be selected.
I am not IT literate but I can follow simply explained instructions.
I have contacted JBL but they conclude that I must contact Dell for the drivers.  They also state that the speakers work on A2DP AVRCP protocols - whatever that means!
These are very excellent speakers and I really do not want to miss out on not being ... Read more

Hi everybody,

I have a desktop running XP and a laptop with Vista Home Premium. Desktop is my main internet connection via adsl. intead of getting a router I though I could be clever and connect to the internet on my laptop via my desktop using a bluetooth wireless network (PAN?). I managed this with the first gongle i got, it was class 2 and software was widcomm unfortunately its range wasn't any good for me. Next I got a class one v.2 dongle and it came with a bluesoleil software which I have now updated to v.6. Nevertheless I cannot connect to the internet at all now. I have tried to install other widcomm software but it doesn't work (an i cannot remember the version which did work with the class 2 dongle). My question is am I doing apples and pears with trying to connect xp and vista systems? This can't be completely true as it did connect once? I just cannot seem to get this thing working. Any suggestions? Many Thanks.

Hey all I am hoping someone has an easy fix for my issue here. I can pair my android cell phone to the pc via win 8 generic bluetooth drivers and it works after confirming the pair code on both my cell phone and my pc.

Problem is that once I reboot I can not connect to the cell phone and have to remove the device from the list and discover it again, pair with it again and then it works.

Am I missing a setting in win 8 that keeps the settings for my bluetooth devices and connects to it once it sees it again?

Also, is there any better drivers/ software to use other than the generic bluetooth drivers that win 8 uses?

Hi, I received a few months ago my new Lenovo T460 together with the wireless ultraslim keyboard and mouse. The mouse perfectly well so issue with that. However, the keyboard doesn't work at all. I have tried many different ways, and read on here in a few places about some nonsense that included pressing F2, F3, F4 while fiddling about with the batteries, but those "solutions" sound more like a bad joke than anything else. For that to work I need four hands which I obviously don't have... So, any suggestions as to a real solution to get the wireless ultraslim keyboard to work? In the user guide I could only find a statement about installing the batteries and that would be it. Thanks a million in advance for any suggestions!
