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.)

I know this is a trivial matter, but it annoys me so here goes:I had to reinstall Win7 on my laptop. There are two lighted buttons in the top-right corner of the keyboard: one for wifi and one for audio. The wifi button turns orange when I turn it off and back to white when on, but the audio button won't switch colors, it stays white. It does work eg. I can mute or turn audio on with it. Any thoughts?

Windows 7 32-bit won't play sound.

Device Manager\Sound, video and game controllers\High Definition Audio Device ok.
Double click and window says:
High Definition Audio Device Properties\General: Device status says This device is working properly.

Speakers are plugged in and make a crackle when plugging in to correct holes.

Mystery?

A:Sound/Mixer icon has red cross. No Audio Output Device is installed.

If it's shown as "working properly" in the Device Manager, the speaker icon you have can also be because the sound is muted.

You show "High Definition Audio Device" rather than the actual sound device which suggests you have the generic Windows/Microsoft installed sound driver rather than the actual sound driver from the motherboard vendor. In many cases the generic Windows driver does not work or work correctly.

You can try and uninstall/reinstall by RIGHT clicking on the entry for the sound and then LEFT click "Uninstall" (DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers) then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This fixes a lot of flakey problems.

If the uninstall/reinstall does not fix it, the next step is to get the correct sound drivers and install them.

HI,
My pc confg is as - cpu core2duo intel 2.93 ghz, board gigabyte GA-G41MT-ES2L. My os is WIN 7 32BIT. I have installed original drivers supplied by gigabyte. when I open audio interface it gives messages like -front jack pin is installed, back jack pin is installed and so on messages. Also the Audio Manager panel display flashes. Speaker sound becomes on and off. Speaker icon at notification area dances. I tried to resolve this problem by installing fresh os, xp ant even downloaded and installed fresh drivers from gigabyte site.

Is there problem with on board audio?

A:Audio speaker icon dancing

It sounds like a problem on the motherboard.
But, reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers, from the Gigabyte site and then reinstall the RealTek drivers from the Gigabyte site and see if that makes a difference.

Hi I've had the Dell XPS 8700 for over a year now and it's an excellent Desktop.
I've recently moved my tower to a new location and notice there is a solid orange light on all the time inside the PC, I believe it's on the motherboard... should I be worried this is on all the time? It's just I've never noticed it before.
Also on the back of the PC there is a solid green light, I'm guessing this is to just tell me the PC has Power.
I tried a google search but everyone with the orange light seems to have PC issues, my pc is working fine as far as I can tell.

A:Dell XPS 8700 Orange Light inside and Green Light on Back

LED on the motherboard will be on as long as the PC is plugged into a working outlet. It's perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.
If you unplug the PC from the wall and press/hold the power button for ~15 sec, that LED will go off. Again, perfectly normal...
Green LED says there's power to the PSU.

Hello, i've recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro Sp2 onto my desktop after it was running sluggish after a trojan infestation. I transfered only my most important pictures and documents from the machine to an external hard-drive, and transfered them back after I had installed all of the necessary applications i.e. Word, Firefox, Java, Adobe, Windows Updates (SP3 Update included.) After I had installed all of these, I purchased and installed drive detective, as my graphics card, processor etc, needed drivers updating.

I installed the drivers for my NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT graphics card, and processor without a problem.

However, driver detective will NOT recognise I have a sound card. I had NO problems with sound, or the sound-card in the past, or prior to re-installing windows. The computer has not moved, and therefore the card is still there and present on the motherboard (and have checked this myself.)

What I have done so far to try and fix this issue;

1. services.msc - tried stopping and restarting the Windows Audio service, and made sure it is on automatic.
2. I have checked device manager, and under sound and audio devices, there are no exclamation marks. (Show hidden devices was checked) - All device manager sees is Audio Codecs, Legacy Sound Device - of which none can be updated. (I Have also tried uninstalling these two, rebooting and to no avail)

I plug in the adapter and the battery panel says it's not charging. All my settings that usually change when charging (brightness, wallpaper slideshow changing) change just as normal.
Everything else is working fine, and as of now my battery doesn't even seem to be going down. I'm not entirely sure what's happened-- my computer has been sitting in my room since I last used it last night, so it's not like any hardware could've been damaged from transporting it.

Hi HitDat,
Thanks for writing to us. Do you see green light on the PSU at the rear side? Ensure the power cable is plugged in properly as well as the PSU connector on the motherboard is tightly secured. Re-seat the memory modules one by one and try with one module at a time and check. Regarding the data on hard drive, we would suggest to take the drive to a local store and get it backed up, or you can try the HD on another machine if possible and if it recognizes, you can back up the same.
do provide us your system tag#, email address and name via private message.

All right, I'm new here, but my HP desktop Pavilion A6560 is new, too, and today on being turned on, the tower had an orange light next to its usual blue "on" light, with "no signal" going on the monitor as it seemed to try three times to boot up successfuly. When it did, finally, the orange light flickered for awhile, slowly eased off. Is this an overheating issue? Vista's "Advisor" program meanwhile is saying it's "critical" I make some systems recovery disks--which it only lets one do once--but doesn't say how many CDs this would require; does anyone know? Seems a good idea, if the orange light is a danger sign. It has been hot around here today--90 degrees out, maybe 80 in the home-office room--but sounds from the people onboard here that that wouldn't be causing the problem. Please help; HP's tech people didn't seem to understand. I 'm hoping the orange light is not a motherboard-out signal like the red light on my previous HP, which died.

Also it don't power up long enough to get the monitor to wake up or go in the BIOS. Then it shuts down again.. it has been doing this over and over since yesterday.. I have had the problem in the past.. and to by pass the problem I would open the dish drive door and put in a disk that I use to boot up with in moments like this and it would boot up.. but since then the disk drive has quit reading disks so I cant rely on that like I used too...

ok, so i have a DELL DIMENSION E521. It will not boot up, however it sounds like it is as i can hear fans. The status light on the motherboard is orange, as is the light on the desktop casing. This is all that happens, the monitor,mouse,keyboard and speakers do not power up at all.

This started happening 5 months ago, however iv'e managed to get around it... id turn the power off/on constantly (rather frustrating) in hope that it'll power up and the light will turn green. This worked a few times, sometimes turning back on much sooner then expected. Needless to say, when it does happen to boot i leave it on as long as i can. ( 29 days at one point) Also, when it does happen to boot up, everything works perfect and i have no problems going about my computer-shinaniagans. You'd think there was no problem at all. Which confuses me, if something was wrong inside surely it would affect using the computer?

Following previous advice i replaced the PSU with an identical dell branded one. This solved nothing. Everything was just the same. I've also removed hardware trying to pin point the problem, again solving nothing. I even removed battery in vein.

So here i am. I must have attempted booting my PC up to 200 times yesterday! Whilst it could happen to turn on if i keep at it.... I'd rather try figure out the actual problem. I also would like to remain sane!

Thanks for reading, any help would be much appriciated x

Have you the option of re-installing the original powersupply to test (if still working)
Also confirm all powersupply and m/b connectors are securely plugged in

I have Windows Vista (Dell Inspiron 1525) and recently the light that shows that my laptop is charging started blinking orange four times, then blue once. It says it's fully charged, but as soon as it's not connected to the wall outlet it acts as if it's completely empty. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

how old is the laptop? when you say it acts compleatly empty do you mean it turns off or it tells you the battery is low?

My Dimension 8200 turned off suddenly with no warning today. It just..died. Annoyed, I turned it back on--tried to at least. The fan still whirled, the CD-ROM drive still spun. The power button, though, glowed a hellish orange where green once shone. Then it sat there and nothing else happened. It didn't boot. The optical mouse light didn't flash. The keyboard lights didn't flash. Nothing.

This has happened before, so I wasn't too concerned. Last time, I panicked for a few minutes and it irrationally and suddenly came back to life as if nothing happened. That was about a year ago or so. This time, though, it's been two hours already and no miracle.

I've read through several threads about similar problems here and at Dell, but I don't want to believe that my motherboard or power supply is gone. Somehow, there MUST be another way. Sob. If anyone has some desperate advice for a desperate guy, please don't hesitate to grace me with a reply. Thank you so much.

I have re-formatted a Windows XP PC & it was working fine until I tried to adjust the screen resolution. The resolution was 800x600 & when I tried to change it higher it said that it was out of range & then locked up. I then re-started the PC but it now it not show anything on the monitor - it stays with the orange light on.

Today my neighbor asked me to go over to his house and fix his computer. When i got there he told me it was the power cable that was the problem ( since he doesn't know much about computers) Well the problem with the computer is that all it does is flash an orange light consecutively were the power button green light should be. He recently installed a new CD/DVD drive i so i thought hey that might be the problem but it wasn't. I unplugged the drive and the orange light continue flicker. I then tried to hold the button for a long period of time But it would not shut off. I then decided to unplug the computer directly from the power source in an attempt to stop the light and maybe have the computer boot but it didn't. If i haven't elaborated enough yet i will tell you that the computer will not boot at all no fans are moving nothing. You can see the motherboard have power cause i see the green light indicating the 5 volts but that is it nothing runs but the green light on the motherboard and the DAMNED flickering orange light. if anyone has any suggestions it would be a great help thank you for your time.
