Preferred Solution: Epower tray has stopped working, ODDPWR has stopped working

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.)

Hi, so the problem I'm having with ATI Tray Tools is it installs fine, but will not start, it will throw a "ATI Tray Tools Has Stopped Working" error. I have tried all of the unsigned drivers tricks (press f8 then select the unsigned driver option every boot, I used DSEO (Drive Signature Enforcement Overrider) to start in TESTMODE and signed the appropriate drivers, I tried ReadyDriverPlus0 and none work. In fact, the srvinst.exe works and reports that the low level drivers are operational. So I've narrowed it down to the atitools executable itself, which I've tried running in admin mode, in compatibility mode for Vista SP1 and SP2, Windows XP SP2 and SP3.

Windows Defender is disabled and so is UAC. It's really frustrating because there are so many nice tweaks in tray tools, and everyone else seemed to get it to work using the unsigned driver method. I don't have any form of anti virus or ant-spyware installed, so I can't see what the problem is.

(just another thing to mention, compatibility troubleshooting never works on my rig, odd, because some of the programs I use should start fine in XP mode (no that I want them too, but its odd that they don't), but they dont. It's almost like Compatibility wizard does nothing. Whenever I try to use it, it doesn't even through an error, it just does nothing, the program won't show any sign of starting or an error.)

By the way, I am running the latest beta of tray tools, which supports windows vistax86/x64 and most people seemed to get it working.

DeskTopAgent Tray has stopped working and various issues
Windows, Vista Home Premium, 64bit

Also, due to several issues I reinstalled.... a week ago.
Notice I still am getting Dell logo at login.
Suspect something is still, lurking & it is not yet, right with the DeskTopAgent Tray has stopped working error message returning.

I would greatly, appreciate, HELP-at this point I am at a loss & keep going in circles. This is list of issues revolving...
1. DeskTopAgent Tray ERROR-??? Have followed suggestions to disable, and select startup programs, several times.
2. Occasional Updates were not downloading correctly, so far at this time all are downloaded "Successfully."
3. IE-8 issues (resolved by switching to Firefox-love it!)
4. Driver issues with printer, and Adobe (resolved and reloaded so, far)
5. Now, am not sure completed reinstall, with Dell logo, appearing at startup.

Every time I try to fix a problem another arises and frankly, simply worn out and tired.

Thank you.

Hi -

Go into the Device Manager, expand the tree branch for Bluetooth and un-install all devices found. RIGHT-click then select Uninstall. Re-boot. Vista will re-install upon boot-up.

Whether that helps or not - I know the laptop is a month old, but... go to your system manufacturer's web site and see if updated drivers are available for bluetooth & all others as well. Look for chipset, video, audio, wifi, Ethernet, etc...

Hello:
The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

I have had a rather large problem over the last couple of days. It started earlier in the week, when one drive stopped working. Not a big problem, I've had drives fail before. 4 disks, so i can handle one less for a little while, i though. Not so though, while still waiting for my new drive, using my computer like usual (with less load on unit D) i suddenly start getting write-errors to D:, and the Intel Matrix Storage Console lists it as Stopped Working instead of Degraded. Nothing changed except for the status of the Volume, all the disks read the same as before, fully functional.

I have very little experience with these sort of matters. This is the first time I've lost a drive where i might lose data as well, and i have pretty much no idea where to go from here. I've tried to replace the faulty disk with another 500GB drive, but the RAID-setup in BIOS just tells me there isn't enough space, and the Console in Windows places the new drive as a Non-RAID drive. I can mark it as reserve, but that seems to be all i can do with it.

I'm not, hopefully, asking for miracles. I have just two things that i really need to retrieve from the Volume, my Firefox sessions (saved in a separate folder at the root of the drive), and my Thunderbird mail, (stored in their standard location, as my whole Windows-profile is on that drive). Everything else i can get again. (Well, not really, i have stuff stored up from 8-10 years back, from people who has withdrawn from t... Read more

Okay, this is the weirdest problem I've ever hard with computers. Here's what happened:

1. I had a few years old Pentium D 2,8GHz processor running on Asus P5VDC-X mobo. PQI 566MHz DDR2 and GF 7600GS 256mb PCI-E, 350W power.
2. I updated the mobo to Asus P5L-MX to support faster PCI-E cards. Everything worked fine, despite the processor ran too hot (58C on high use)
3. Because of the overheating I replaced the thermal paste but it had no effect on the temperature.
4. I thought I used too much paste so I replaced the paste again.
---
5. Bang, no video when I turn on the computer. I tried taking off everything part by part but nothing worked. It didn't work even when I only had processor and used the integrated graphics port. Tried resetting the bios too.
6. Nothing worked so I put back the old P5VDC-X and it worked like charm.
7. I thought it was logical that the problem was caused because of the mobo so I bought a new one, Asrock G31M-S.
8. No video... Did the same steps to this one too. It also had integrated gfx but it didn't work either.
9. The old P5VDC-X still works.

So I have no idea what's causing the problem. Is it the CPU? Mobo? PSU? RAM? I have no speaker on my case so I can't hear any beeps, but it won't start loading the OS from the hardrive and my USB mouse won't turn on. Tried using a differen't monitor too.

The main point is why it stopped working suddenly on new mobo's but still works with the old P5VDC-X? A... Read more

Two new motherboards tells us you made the same simple install error in both of them.
Tell us more about power supply, memory, cable.
Did you make sure the memory was correct for both new boards, and what is the memory on the old board. Would also like to know the power supply and other hard ware.
What happens with the most basic, simple install. Does everything light up?

If you used the same hard drive with the same Windows install on the two motherboards, that is the problem. Windows has detected that you have changed the motherboard and will not operate unless you reinstall Windows on the drive on each new motherboard... One install for each motherboard.
My guess is that you will be fine if you change hard drives or do reinstalls or repair installs of the Windows on the new motherboard.

Vista Ultimate 64-bit, ASUS Rampage Formula motherboard, USB mouse and keyboard connected in back ports.

Two things happened: Avira antivirus warned me of some threats which I either ignored or deleted. Windows Update had some updates ready (although I'm not sure if it updated).

I turned off my PC for a couple of hours, turned it back on and realized that my USB keyboard was not working on the password screen.

I eventually unplugged it from the back and plugged it into the front, where it worked. However, my USB mouse did not work when plugged into the second front port, nor did it work when plugged into the front port in which the keyboard worked.

I accessed System Restore using my keyboard and restored to one day previously. When it finished, both keyboard and mouse worked, although I got a pop-up message alerting me that the "drivers for your device could not be installed." When I clicked "OK," the mouse stopped working again.

I have checked BIOS and both mouse and keyboard are recognized, so it does not appear to be a hardware issue.

As this has already been identified as a problem for many Chrome users, I can only suggest that you try and run Chrome with a minimum number of Windows open simultaneously and see if that fixes your issue. You also might want to check your RAM allocation in Task Manager when this happens to make sure you have adequate free RAM available at the time of the incident.

I have an Optiplex 170L tower with a 2007FP display, running XP SP3.  (Yeah, yeah, I know ...)
I have always had the USB hub on the display connected to the tower to make using flash drives easier, since the tower sits on the floor at my desk.  Suddenly, Windows has stopped activating the hub.  Even worse, it thinks the hub is "new hardware" but refuses to reinstall it.  That damned "new hardware wizard" thinks it is a "USB Device" rather than a root hub and even manually pointing it at the folder where USBHUB.SYS is located doesn't work ("this location does not have information on your device").
I know the driver isn't corrupted because it runs for all the other USB root hubs on the tower.
I also already tried the trick of uninstalling all the root hub drivers (except for the one that has my keyboard and trackball connected to it) and rebooting.  All the USB hubs on the tower get reinstalled as "new hardware" and then the wizard can't find the driver for the hub on the display.
The only thing I could think of is that maybe Windows wants an .INF file specific to the display hub (although why it didn't before is a mystery) but I don't think such a file exists, nor am I well-versed in creating those.
Any and all ideas are welcome ... this is becoming maddening.

I have tried to update the driver but it says that it is up to date. I have uninstalled the dvd and reinstalled it but the problem is still there. I have done a system restore to a point that I know it was working but it didn't fix it. The only other thing I can think of is restoring factory settings but I'm hoping I won't have to resort to that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

click here to go to dell support site.
Click downloads
Identify your computer (or you can give it permission by Choose by Tag/Find My Service Tag let it identify your machine
You'll get a page with all drivers for all devices that are a Dell option for that machine
Check the name of the DVD device (per Device Manager) and find this exact device listed among Dell's DVD drivers (they usually sell several different ones, and they all have drivers listed. Make sure you pick right one)
Download the file
Uninstall the old device
Double click on the driver download file and it will do the rest

Well, my moms hdd went to hell for whatever reason, so i figured that since i had 2 HDDs in my computer, that i would take the spare one i had (never use it) and let her use it. Well it wouldnt work in her computer, it kept going to a screen that said press F1 to boot and f2 for setup options or something like that. So i figured i would put it back in my computer, and now neither of my hdds work, not the primary or the spare i had. Does anyone know the problem? All i know is the one when its booted has that F1 to boot thing, and the primary hdd i had, when it tries to boot, it says disk read error or something along those lines. Should i just get a new HDD?
 

A:HDD stopped working, help please

Sounds like you didn't install your HDD properly. When you put it in your mother's computer, dud you set it as master? Also, you need to install Windows or clone her old HDD to yours (sometimes you can do this even if the old HDD doesn't boot.)

I got this problem that a huge amount of my programs on my computer keep on stopping to work.
I can't turn my Norton AntiVirus2010 on.
I can't turn Steam on.
Lots of Itunes stuff has stopped working.
The only real programs that do work are World Of Warcraft and Firefox.
Please help fast.
I've tried the sfc /scan thingy.
Is there any more options?

First run an antivirus scan
Download and run malwarebytes

Then right click on taskbar, bring up task manager and make sure that your memory is sufficient and working properly.

Do a clean boot.

It seems I can no longer install anything new in my desktop's USB ports, though existing stuff continues to work. XP recognises "new hardware" when it's plugged in but the wizard won't install the driver (automatically, from CD or from the Internet) whereas my laptop is happy with the lot (memory stick, mobile phone and webcam).
The only thing I could think of was that I unplugged my (previously working) webcam to use with my laptop for a while. Being a real cheapie device I wondered if unplugging it might have upset XP. Well the desktop now thinks the webcam is new and won't install that either, but the laptop is OK about losing the webcam.
Interestingly my Mikomi 256MB flash drive still works but my new ByteStor 2GB flash drive won’t, even though they appear (from their shapes) to be from the same manufacturer.
Anyone any ideas on how I can fix this please?

This is what is listed in Device Manager:-
- Universal Serial Bus Controllers
Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller

Hi, I have been using FTP for years to send files to my website, hosted at Godaddy. I used FileZilla on my PC to access and upload files to the site. A few weeks ago it just stopped working - no changes from my end as far as I know. I connect wired or wireless to a BT Home Hub 5 router.

What I get is this:
Status: Resolving address of ftp.import-car.info
Status: Connecting to 208.109.181.201:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error: Could not connect to server

I have contacted BT and Filezilla and Godaddy support and all blame someone else so I am stuck. The settings appear to be correct according to the support folks but still nothing happens. I can connect from a wifi hotspot away from my home but from here I am blocked somehow.

The full history is logged here with some screen shots and settings etc.

Any help greatly appreciated as I need to be able to upload files to my site.
thanks
Mike

My CD Rom wont read the disk any disk , you can hear it trying, then stops , when I go to MY COMPUTER and click the E drive it tells me to insert a disk and opens, what would the problem be? it just started from out of nowhere.
I did this:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UdfReadr]

Also Downloaded a PC fixer and ran it , still no go...

Have you tried blowing the dust out of it?

Did you actually delete the entire upper and lower filters registry key or just the value? You need to delete the entire key...see link below.

Some person I know is a total computer-newbie and they installed DSL yesterday.

It was working fine until today.

In like 10 minutes I'm about to go to their house which is like.. what.. 40 minutes away? They use Windows 2000 Professional (No service packs, since they don't know about it), hmm..
That's about all I know about this.

Some help would be appreciated if at all, since I never used DSL before or know what it is.. I know it stands for Digital Subscriber Line though..

Ok, so I'm sure this problem has popped up more times than people can count. Anyhow, Team Fortress 2 always shows this message when I try to start it. It never even loads it. Just begins then stops. I've tried everything Steam support said to do. I've tried the security workaround. I've disabled UAC and DEP. I've moved the folder to 'Common' instead of username. I've deleted Steam and reinstalled everything. I've enabled msinfo32.exe. I've repaired WMI. I've done just about everything people have said, and still nothing. Are there any other fixes people have heard about? I just want to play Team Fortress 2 lol.

if AVG will not install, try uninstalling it using the link below as a guide. the page also contains an AVG uninstall tool if the manual method fails. once completed, start reinstall of AVG for a fresh start. see link:

Hello Forum, I have bought a Lenovo Z50-75 in january 2015, and since last 2 weeks it seems the fan is not working, since the laptop is overheating  (up to around 95 C before it shuts down).I've installed Speedfan to check the temperatures, but speedfan can not find the fan.  There is also no airflow coming from the side.2 days ago i opened my laptop, because it seemed like the speakers were torn. When i opened it and checked them, there were a load of tiny balls magnetically attached to the speakers, which has led me to think they could be the ball bearings from the fan. Does that make any sense? Im trying to find out if it's the fan itself, or if it is a software / mobo problem. I've updated my BIOS to the latest version, and downloaded the Lenovo Solution Center, but without any luck. Is anyone familiair with this problem, or does anyone have some ideas what else I might try? Kind regards,Robbert

It still boggles my mind how something works since day one and then all of a sudden it stops working...

I have a Compaq notebook that has a cdr-w built into it.

Just yesterday I was going to burn a cd...but windows can't find a cd player?

In the device manager under cd rom drives, it shows the matshita cdr-w drive but with a yellow circle with an exclamation mark in it.

When I click properties under the matshita drive, the device status says the following:

"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Your help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

My Pioneer DVD RW 103 has stopped working. The green flashing light gives way to the yellow flashing light which is where it stays. I have heard that running a 4X CD on the drive will damage it. Is this true? If so Do I have to buy a new drive?

You don't give much information....have you tried more than one CD/DVD? Is this happening during the burn process or just trying to read it?

Could you just have a bad disk? disk upside down (don't laugh, I've see it happen), dirty disks?

Yesterday I purchased a cheap MP3 player and tried to get it all set up. Everything was going fine until the directions said that I needed to detach from the Windows operating system before unplugging the player. I have Windows XP Professional and the directions said to click the "Remove Hardware" icon....which I couldnt find....so I just unplugged the MP3 player. None of the songs that I had thought were downloaded were on the player and after trying again a couple of times the E drive that initially showed up when I plugged it in was no longer showing up. In addition none of the USB plug-ins were working anymore. I looked at the Microsoft website and they said something like if you unplug and re-plug in a USB device too many times the USB port may stop working....is this true? Is my computer broken for good now? My family uses USB devices all the time and if I messed it up my name is mud. I tried the resolution listed and even called Microsoft tech support to no avail. They just had me turn the computer on & off a bunch of times and try plugging stuff back in...then said to call back tomorrow for more help. The Microsoft website mentions disabling the selective suspend feature & "modifying the registry" or "registry editor" and if you mess up you could put your operating system in jeopardy?.....does anyone know what to do? Please help!!!

Last week I was experimenting with ripping dvds and it was working great. However, after ripping 2 or 3 dvd's onto my backup hardrive it stopped working. It said that I needed to have a dvd player open in order to get through the encrypted dvd...so I though okay no problem, I'll just use NVDVD player like I always have. But now a message pops up telling me that the disk is encrypted and must be opened using a dvd player...even though NVDVD is just that, a dvd player. Now I have tried 3 other dvd players and none of them work. I thought maybe I lost some codecs so I downloaded the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. This did nothing for dvds. So any idea what I'm missing ??? I plan to reformat soon, so I guess this would just be another reason to do that. Thanks!

Well let's try this again...my last thread wasn't even centered around copying dvd's, I was just ripping them to my computer so I could put them onto my mp3 player and delete them short after.The transmission or resale of copyrighted material without permission is illegal, not the transfer of material from the owner for the owners use...but it doesn't matter, that's not what my question is about.

Any who, whenever I pop in a dvd and try to open it with NVDVD (Nvidia dvd player) it says, "This disk contains DVD content. The files may be encrypted and therefor not be playable using this player. Please switch to the DVD player to play this disk". But I've been using NVDVD to watch dvd's ever since I got the computer...so I must have lost a file or something in the copying process . I've tried other DVD players and none of them are able to play the disks. Any advice is appreciated...thanks!

New behavior on new Vista HP 64bit installation. Was working fine 4 days ago; had been shut down until last evening. Have installed minimum additional apps, all reportedly 64bit compliant.
IE 8 message when starting IE - "Last browsing session closed unexpectedly, Restore previous session or open homepage?" Either choice results in "IE has stopped working, Windows checking for solution"... "A problem caused IE to close, Windows will close program and notify you if solution". IE closes, no solution found. Have tried disabling add-ons, have reset IE settings to default, have disabled McAfee internet security. Have run antivirus scans, malware scans (all clean), my System Restore points were (unknowingly) turned off so my most recent restore point is from last evening, AFTER the problem began. What next? I'm at the point where I COULD run clean install of Vista HP.

before you nuke this OS why not try a system file check. it verifies and reapir system files. you run it by start>search>type cmd> right click run as admin>type sfc /scannow
