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.)

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...

Hi -

The crash info tells me -
- you have Vista SP2 installed
- Windows Explorer crashed
- Explorer.exe timestamp = 49e02a1e, which = Sat Apr 11 01:26:54 2009, valid for SP2
- Exception 0xc0000005 occurred = memory access violation

Did you have your system checked out by Security Expert to assure that the virus is in fact gone? If not -

Proceed to the Security Center, Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help Forum, to have your system reviewed by a Security Analyst. Be sure to follow THESE STEPS carefully before posting your logs in the Security Forum. Please be patient as the Security Analysts are very busy and one will get to you as soon as possible.

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.

Hello everyone!
This is my very first post so I am sorry for any mistake.
I have a bothering problem. My VPN, which I configured through the "Settings" page of Windows 10, stopped working. It happened already yesterday, then I restored the system to a previous point and then it worked again. Now it has just stopped once more.
When I try to connect to my configured VPN, the writing "Verifying access information" hangs on, then nothing and then a red writing like "Unable to establish a connection with remote computer. The port used for connection has been closed" appears (more or less this, considering I have it in my own Language). Then, even if I configure another VPN, exactly the same thing happens.
Can it be something corrupted? It would be very strange, considering it happened also yesterday and in both cases I was doing really nothing, it just stopped working.
Any idea? Thank you very much!

P.S.: I have already done network reset and uninstalled and reinstalled network adapters. The only thing that worked, even if just for a while, was restoring the system to a previous point.

I had some problems with steam games too though they were different than yours. Still though you can try this solution that helped me out.

-Go to computer management (you can just type it in the search bar)
-Then on the left side click services and application
-click services
-on the right side list look for something that is called ForceWare Intelligent Application Manager (IAM) and disable it.

My problem was when I started the game everything was studdering. Like I said different problem than yours but worth a shot. Also make sure Nvidia network manager is uninstalled.

If none of that works I would go search and if nothing is found ask on the steam forums.

How about your system specs and what application are not responding? My crystal ball is in for repairs.

I have an HP Pavilion 3100 and a few weeks ago the cd rom stopped working. I was advised that possibly something had wiggled loose and I took the computer apart to check the connections. Couldn't find anything that seemed loose but I'm not really sure just what I was looking for either! When I put a cd in, I get the same message each time: "device is not ready". I've checked to make sure the computer knows it is there and it does but I just can't get it to work. Any suggestions will be helpful and appreciated - I'm not too sure about how to do a lot of things so please explain them as plainly as possible. Thank you so much for being there to help!!!
 

A:CD Rom stopped working

Take a look in the Control Panel>Device Manager for any yellow ! or red error indicators under CD-rom. If found, expand the line for the drive and post back any error messages found. You could try to select the dirve and then the Remove button, reboot and let Windows find the drive and install it again. You could try a cd cleaner. Unfortunately drives do just go bad.

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!

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}]
"UpperFilters"=-
"LowerFilters"=-

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdr4_2K]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdralw2k]

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

[-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.

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.

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..
 

A:DSL stopped working

if they are using a router reset it if just a modem reset it if no reset button on the modem pull the power plug to reset and reboot the computer

Good Day

Last night I started to get a pop-up window saying "DWM.Exe has stopped working correctly. Windows will close the programme and notify you when if a solution is available"

I did an internet search for the problem and besides sites telling me to buy their fixer programme, the only sensible advice was to restore the computer to the last restore point date.

Is this an acceptable and permanent solution and is it the only solution. Will it fix the root cause of this problem?

Running Win7 64 Bit.

Thanks

OK, I have just noticed that my del key no longer works, and i don't know why. I remember it working a couple days ago, but now it doesn't.

I thought it may be a keyboard issue (I have a logitech wireless keyboard & mouse) but reading the forums, another user suggested trying the on-screen keyboard to check.

I checked using the OSK, and the del key doesnt work on that either.. so I don't believe it is a keyboard or keyboard software issue..

Would anyone have any suggestions? It is not the end of the world, but it is rather annoying.. you don't realise how often you use it for things until you don't have it.

NOTE.. I restarted windows, and discovered that the Delete key DOES work at the initial login screen, but once windows has fully loaded up, it stops working.. not sure how that is relevant, but am sure it is.

My Wife's PC crashes regularly. The Reliability Monitor shows no problems except for Windows Failures. The error message is always the same 0X000000d1(0X0000008, 0X0000002,0X0000001,0X8342f796).

I have run Scannow which found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. I have tried to access the log but "Access is Denied".

I am not confident that this will solve the problem. Is there anything else I can do?

For no apparant reason (I haven't made any changes to my system etc), my Pioneer DVD-115 DVD-ROM Drive is no longer working properly. My computer is about a year old running XP Professional.

Data CD's - Autoplay will not work, but the cd's contents can be examined in windows explorer

Music CD's - Recognized and autoplay with no problems

DVD's - Not recognized at all. The drive just keeps spinning without revving down and Windows doesn't act like there's even a CD in the drive. Trying to open the drive in windows explorer causes a lockup.

Trying to open the drive with no cd in it causes an error message to pop up that says "incorrect function"

I tried using system restore, but it didn't solve the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum,

It sounds like your DVD\CD Rom is bad. Do you have a warunty on your PC? If you do I would send it back and get a new DVD\CD rom.

Hey All

The other day everything was running perfect, i took a phone call and when I came back my mouse wasnt working. Ok, so i rebooted. Still nothing, so I switched to another USB port, still nothing, then i tried my USB memory stick even that wouldn't recognize. So i tried all of my USB ports and still nothing.

Since then i have tried

- restoring to a few days ago
- took the whole rig apart
- tried a new PSU
- reset my CMOS
- took my battery out of my MB for 12 hours

Seriously everything. In my device Manager I have a Unknown Device that will nt update or even tell me what the hell it is, but I have NOTHING plugged into a USB port on my comp. I'm so lost anyone have any more ideas??

thats a bi**H. I can help you with the unknown device. if you go into device manager and right click the unknown go to properties>details>use the pull down to show hardware id's take the id string and drop it into google. It will tell you what the device is. hardware ID's are unique

Let us know if that doesnt help

First off,hello and thank you for your time.

Almost all of my games I try to play keep crashing into " .exe stopped working". I can run them, but about 10 minute mark (most of the time even sooner), they just crash and say that. I tried reinstalling them, different games and almost all of them do that. In some cases I just get to the menu and when I start playing they just drop. Even those that didn't do that before, I have been playing them for about a hour for example and now I can't do that. I just don't know what to do.

Thanks for any advice.

I run IPX and TCP/IP on five computers. Suddenly, IPX has stopped working on one laptop on both the wired and wireless connection. I've tried removing IPX and reinstalling. I've tried removing both the wired and wireless ethernet and reinstalling. I've shut down the firewalls on all systems with no change in result.

I have temporarily set up NetBEUI as a stop-gap measure until I can figure out what's wrong with IPX.

I need suggestions on troubleshooting IPX.
