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.)

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, 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.

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.

My CD-Rom has stopped working. I was listening to an audio book on Windows Media Player when it froze up right in the middle of a track. I closed WMP and re-opened it. It said to insert a disc. I rebooted my computer, it still did not acknowledge there is a disc in the drive. I've tried several different discs, and different types. My Computer does not acknowledge them either.

I then tried uninstalling and re-installing the driver. Still does not acknowledge there is a disc in the drive, but the troubleshooter still continues to tell me the drive is working properly. It is spinning when I put in a new disc, but says there isn't one there. I'm stuck. What else can I try? Isn't it odd that it would stop working while I was listening to it??

My computer was making incredibly loud noises. I have 2 desktops and a laptop. Both the laptop and one of the older desktops I used for typing/printing only started making noises. Since the laptop is new I fixed it immediately (bought the warranty and everything). Now the older PC, I tried fixing it myself. I cleaned the fan. And it actually started working again. But now, a week after the cleaning the fan doesn't work at all. The computer has been on for 3 days and it's still working. Just out of curiosity, how long can a computer last before it dies without a CPU fan?

I'm going to buy one today though. Is it enough if I just tell them the stuff that's written on the CPU fan (CPU COOLER - DC 12V / 0.09 A - PL 50S12M) or do I have to measure it? It's around 2.5" long I think. Maybe even less. I'd appreciate any help.

update: OK for no reason whatsoever my fan seemed to have started spinning now. The only difference I noticed is the room temperature. When it wasn't spinning the room was very cold (open window all night). Now it's warmer by at least 7C and it started working for no reason. Does the room temp have anything to do with it?
 

A:Fan stopped working

hi lost and welcome to Techspot

you obviously have an Intel because an AMD system would have shut down if the fan stopped spinning (due the the CPU overheating)

however, certain Intel systems (i'm not sure if some or all) will slow down to a crawl but will still remain on. If the fan stops spinning the HSF turns into a passive cooler, the CPU will downclock itself so that it will not overheat.

as far as what HSF you need to buy to replace it. if you're only going to replace the fan itself (which i dont recommend) then you can pretty much replace it with any 3wired 12v fan of the same size. if your going to replace thewhole HFS unit (which is what you should do) then you need to know the CPU and socket type so that it attaches correctly

I have a HL-DT-ST DVD+RW GRA-4120B installed in my Dell Dimension 8300 which recently stopped working. I also have a Samsung DVD-ROM as well , which seems to be working fine. The tray door still opens, the green lite goes on, I install a disk, the door closes and the lite goes out and stays out. The drive is still visible in "My Computer" etc., it reads the device is working properly, but it will not recognize any type of disk. so far I have uninstalled an re-installed the driver to no avail. Is it possible the unit is shot? I only have it about 1 1/2 yrs. but have burned a lot of DVDs. I have also run the Diagnostic program and the Dell troubleshooter which didn't show a problem and didn't help. I'm pretty much a novice with this stuff, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Rick

Check to see if it's still under warranty. I had a DVD drive in a Dell 8300 and they sent me a brand new NEC burner that works great.

Need help here,

I've installed Win XP pro with no service packs onto a machine that had Win XP home SP2 (because they lost the recovery disks), now none of the usb 2.0 ports work. I remembered that SP2 has the drivers for usb 2.0 after I'd installed it. Can't download SP2 either.

Tried updating the USB driver and am told i'm missing file usbehci.sys

Looked everywhere on the net for it and ended up in survey hungry sites that that don't deliver drivers as promised.

Any ideas???

My PC is hard wired/connected to my plasma TV. It was working but now the TV just shows a snapshot of the desk top (but without the desk to icons...just the wallpaper shows).

I disconnected the HDMI cables from both the PC and TV, restarted the PC, but that didn't help.

What could possibly be the problem?

Thanks.

Try opening the IE without the addons.
Start->programs-.accessories->System tools->IE(No addons).
If it works fine then removed all the addons.

One day my usb mouse stopped working on the right side of the laptop. I unplugged and and tried to replug it but the port felt different on both the right side USB ports. They weren't as springy as they used to be and nothing worked when plugged in but the left side USB ports felt normal and still worked. What would cause two USB ports to stop working and feel so different all of a sudden

Hi there, i've looked everywhere online for a similar error, but to be honest I am unsure of what I am looking for, so I have decided to post on here.

Everytime I try to open a file or program - mostly Internet Explorer, I keep getting an error message that says:
'ave. exe has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.' Basically it won't let me open anything unless I run as administrator.

Now about 2 months ago my computer was hit with that fake security virus, which goes by the name av.exe. I managed to get rid of that by messing around in the registry. I'm not sure if this is a variant of the av.exe virus as i've not had any fake security pop-ups like I did last time, so i'm not entirely sure what I should be removing from my computer, or if this could just be a problem with vista.

Any suggestions or help on how I could get rid of this problem?
Cheers!

Hi, I have a basic knowledge of computers but have no clue how to deal with this issue. Im', using IE 7; Vista. I started IE and an error message popped up saying, "Internet Explorer has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." In the meantime, once the browser opened, I just stumbled upon the "In Private Browsing" option and very quickly clicked on it. THIS has allowed me to get on the web! However, if I click on my IE icon and don't go into In Private, the above error message appears and the browser closes. What to do???? Anyone???

My parents PC is causing some mischief recently. Suddenly their LG CD-RW (bought in about 2002) has decided not to play nice. What happens:

Open tray
Put in disc (audio/data/blank)
Close tray
Drive spins, read light flickers
Tray opens

I can't get it to read/work properly. I flicked through device manager and everything looks normal. Opened up the box and double check all cables (gave everything a bit of a clean while I was in there). Is it just a case of a drive getting old and dying or is there a fix for such a problem?

Thanx for your help in advance!

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?

I seriously do not know how to fix this problem anymore. I tried so many different ways that I feel as if my only hope of this problem to go away is if I get Window 7.

I tried the method I saw on another thread about localnetgroup or something like that.
I tried to put steam as the exception for the DEP
I turned off firewall, and my antivirus system (Which at the time was Norton) but now I use AVG, and the problem remains.
I updated my Nvidia driver so it's up to date.
I tried changing screen resolution. I tried re-installing it. I TRIED EVERYTHING. YET I STILL CAN'T RUN MY 2 FAVORITE GAMES: TF2 AND PORTAL R%&*^*473UIhjg#j

I don't know what to do anymore :[ Halp me guys.

Here is what happens:
When I open steam, I double-click Portal. But it doesn't open. The sign "HL2.exe stopped working" appears. Then vista automatically search for a solution. Then it says "Solution not found, window will not close this application" or something like that.

I can't run Half-Life: Deathmatch either.
However, the strange thing is that when I open Half Life: Lost Coast, it works perfectly. <_< Is my computer on steroids or something :\

A:HL2.EXE stopped working

Right click your Steam icon in the tray.Go to games right click the game / mod you want and right click on it.Go to properties / Set launch options and slap this in there :

-console -novid

You can also try this program that tweaks source mods Half-Life 2: Source Sauce Utility (v2.0), Half-Life 2 Downloads, Half-Life 2 Miscellaneous

Hope that works for you when I 1st started playing TF2 I went crazy......

Hello  HP Support, Need to revisit this problem  posted several weeks  ago as it remains unresoved. CD ROM, which was working post Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 8, stopped working about a month ago. Ejects all disks before they are allowed to play, thus making impossible playback of audio and video content or installation of software.  MS support technicians who examined computer online at first suggested hardware problem  but on second time around concluded  that drivers, to be provided by OEM, which are compatible with Windows  10 and its updates are required to run this CD ROM.  In all likelihood it was an update of Windows 10  which disabled the CD ROM.  Reset of system to pre-update point turned out to  be not possible. Are there  separate CD ROM drivers which I can get from HP, other than generic drivers,  which will work under the circumnstances? CD device detected : HP BDDVDW CA21N.  Would  appreciate help with this. Thanks in advance. Andrew

Greetings,   Sorry for bloviating. Try to keep replies short. Device Manager hardware status will not necessarily reveal a tangible hardware problem.. You could disconnect the SATA cable on a CD/DVD drive but there will be no errors in Device Manager. This also implies a SATA port could fail but you would not see an error for this drive in Device Manager. Device Manger will alert you when there is a driver problem. So no drive errors in Device Manager does not rule out hardware failure. HP is not providing Win 10 drivers for your PC because this model was first introduced by HP in 2011. I have been using PC's long before the advent of CD/DVD drives and have never seen this type of problem. You are not alone, this issue seems to happen when upgrading to Win 10. Don't know what Microsoft techs did. The only thing I can think of to to Open "Control Panel." "Device Manager". Uninstall or remove the current device found in "DVD/CD Rom drives". If you get a prompt asking to completely remove the drivers select "YES". Reboot the PC.  Maybe Win 10 will give you better drivers after the reboot. You can also do a USB stick install of Win !0 and keep files and apps if Win 10 has activated. This may fix the problem. As always, back up the good stuff first. Other options are to replace the hardware or go back to the previous operating system. If the fault follows the rollback to the previous ope...
