Q: plz help been having problem for 2 months

i am new to this forum...so i dont know if this is the right catagorie....but here is my whole story...plz help!

This is a problem with my computer crashing when playin games

ok i had a friend build me a custom made computer....and he loaded windows ME on it. I realized this OS was crap so i upgraded to windows XP at a friends lan. This is where all the trouble began. So i loaded my favorite game (counter-strike) on my new XP operating system and after 2 minutes of playin it would crash wit an error note. I tried and tried playing again but still had errors after 2-5 minutes of playing.

Next i decided to clear out XP and go to 2k pro......still same crashing problem while playin games.

Next i went back to ME thinking all would be better if i went back to when it worked fine. NO still same problem

Then one day i bump computer and it shuts off and from then on my computer shuts off with even the slightest touch. So i take it to the local computer store and the guy tells me the mobo wasnt properly screwed in and connected or something like that and says that this was probably the reason why my computer crashes while playing game.------- well it fixed the nudging and turning off problem but games still crash!

I Reformatted wit various OS's time and time and stil had problem.
So finally i thought well it could be a ram issue. So a friend let me borrow a stick of 256 pc3500 mushkin ram.

YES YES it worked fine for 2 whole days of use........and wit 2 long days of gaming i figured i have finally found the problem. So i bought 2 x 256 stick of Kingston hyper x 3000 ram, (i also bought a second hard drive...b/c my old hard drive was only 40gb)

ok so hard drive and ram arrive on same day and i install both....i start up a game and 45 minutes into play my computer restarts without an error message juss completly restarts. So i change the slot of my ram on the motherboard and that solved the restarting problem.

Now i start a game back up again and it juss crashes anywhere from 5-45 minutes. sometimes i play a long time b4 a crash happens or repeats over and over 5 minutes everytime i start up a game.

So i dont think its the ram anymore since the stuff i got is brand new but i dont know why my friends ram worked fine for 2 days?

ALL this stuff has happend over a 2 month period where i have been to local computer stores and worked hard on tryin to solve the problem but it never gets fixed.

If anyone knows wats wrong....how to help....or wat to do.....plz respond to this post or

email me at [email protected]

or IM me

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 update and save quite a few files each day, and I can see in File History that there are many saved versions for these files.
This would fill up my backup drive fairly quickly, and therefore, I need to reduce 'Keep saved versions' from the default of 'forever' to about 3 months.  But does this mean that all files older than 3 months will be deleted my File History backup?
 What happens to all my files that have only ever been saved once, but are older than 3 months?  Are these retained in File History or deleted?
The forums on File History do no make this very clear.

Hello,
 
Okay first of all I would like to say I have been having on going issues for months to almost a year... I have tried everything I can think of... Including wiping harddrives to DoD standards with dban, gparted etc.... I have tried monitering my connections with wireshark...  I have tried several differet anti- (virus and malware) programs including paid version of kaspersky, malwarebytes, bitdefender, eset.....
 
This problem also has involved some black hat hackers compromising my system and bank account, credit card etc all being hit and continueing to do so... I have switched ISPs , changed hardware, thrown away devices including cell phones and laptops...

I have tried to ask for help and seek help for this and no one can figure it out or think this cant be real.
 
I have now thrown out all laptops, and all phones at the same time and started from scratch but having issues on a brand new laptop... I am not sure this is the same issue as before...

I built my computer about 2 years ago. Here is the hardware:
Gigabyte GA-EG45M-DS2H motherboard
Intel E8500
Corsair 8GB (4x2GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 XMS2 DHX Memory Non-ECC Unbuffered CL4(4-4-4-12)
3x Samsung SpinPoint 1TB hard drives
Running Windows 7 in 64-bit

Every three or 4 months, the computer "dies". At start up i get blue screen saying:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
A process or thread crucial to system operation has been unexpectedly exited or
(some other stuff about did i just install new hardware etc)
Technical information:

Collecting data for crash dump...

Dumping physical memory to disk:

Over the last couple of years this has happened 4 times. What I did in the past was to re-install the operating system on a new, blank hard drive, and then copy over all the info from the previous hard drive. That has worked fine, which makes me believe this is not a problem with Windows, but possibly a problem with the motherboard.
What i also find strange is that after installing the OS again, things are fine for about 3 of 4 months, then ... BSOD!

Are you able to tell me more about the error message, the reason for this problem, and how to solve it?

Many thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

Alex

A:Same problem every 3 months.

Can you please provide a JCGriff report as mentioned here? Thanks. That'll give us enough to feed on.

While waiting for us to analyze, you may also want to do some hardware tests in the meantime. Here's some options:

CPU: Prime95 (Torture Test; Large FFTs; 9+ hours)
RAM: Memtest86+ Run overnight (or at least 7 passes)
HD: Seatools (Short & Long Self Tests)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL

To add, you can turn on Driver Verifier. Any crashes produced while it is on have a much better chance pointing us at an offending driver (if it's caused by a driver).

Did have a serious virus that took some work to get out of my machine, but I'm afraid it left something behind,and am at my wits end to find it / clean it. Want to have the HJT log looked at, and maybe the answer here is to re-install windows XP. I dunno... just gettting unbeleivable slowness, with the Performance indicator in Task manager generally spiked at 88% to 100% most of the time.

Wondering if it is worth trying to fix issue, or just re-install (and which method is best?)

Please help me, I have been battling with a problem with my PC for months now. I am running XP SP2. I recently changed from a USB broadband modem to a Web Excel broadband router so that I can connect another 2 PCs in a network at home. At the same time I upgraded my all in one printer to a HP from a Lexmark.
Since then I have not been able to use my speakers unless I manually go into services and start it there. It is set to start automatically and all the dependencies are starting OK.
My firewall is not starting up either and even trying to start it manually doesn't work.
When I set the router up initially I went through the network wizard and set up a second PC as a home network and it worked fine initially, but now it doesn't.
I am tempted to wipe the lot and start again but I have so much stuff set-up on my PC that I can't afford to lose or I would have done it already.
Someone told me that you can reinstall windows without losing everything? Is that possible?
I have done a lot of virus checks and it comes up clean. I feel that it's more of a conflict between something that I have added but everything shows up in the device manager as working fine?
Can someone start the ball rolling with some suggestions as to what I can try? I am tearing my hair out here

Thanks in advance
 

A:I've been battling with this problem for months now!! Help me please somebody?

you can reinstall windows without lossing everything, boot from cd, hit enter, after it searches for previous versions hit r to repair the installation. make sure you have the product key before you begin. maybe someone else knows how to fix the problem without doing that though?

I'm not sure what you mean by this?
What is the make and model of your computer? You may have a Recovery Partition on your computer. If you start up your computer, you may have a quick message over the logo that says Press (key) to Enter Recovery, sometimes this is F11. If so, this will set your computer back to Factory Defaults. This will remove all personal data, so backup first.
If you do not have a recovery partition, then read up on the link in my signature PC Running Slow? And try those things.

Hi guys, I have this PC with this spec:

RAM - 2x kingston 2GB DDR3
VGA - NVIDIA GeForce GTS250
MB - GIGABYTE S-SERIES GA-P41T-ES3G
CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad CPU
PSU - SimCool 430W

My problem is that my PC starts to give me sudden shut down problem. no warning, no nothing, just shut down like when we pull the power plug.

I went to the shop where I bought this PC to check for any hard drive error, and they said nothing is wrong with it. they gave me a new power cable, the PC lasted for a 1 or 2 days without the problem.

And then now it started to give me this problem all over again.

Any comments or speculation on where the problem is?
anything i need to know to fix this?

Thanks for the help guys =)
 

A:Sudden shut down problem after not being turned on for 2 months

It could be any number of issues. What are your system temperatures? Sudden shut-downs can be caused by an overheating CPU.

Use HWMonitor to check your temps. If they're under control then it may be a problem with the PSU.

I have a Samsung RF510 laptop; really nice and plays games nicely, but as of yesterday I've had a problem.

Whenever -anything- that runs causing the fan to start roaring and the vents to get hot, the laptop will suddenly shut down after just 10 minutes. It could be games, I could be rendering a video in sony vegas, doesn't matter.

Thing is, the corner where the vents were would always get really hot on my laptop and this has never posed a problem before; only now it is suddenly shutting down. It's never done this before yesterday, and I mean never. Even a week straight of 5 hours of Borderlands on max settings every night never caused an issue.

Would blowing compressed air into the vents help? Is there a known issue (I did LOTS of searching all day, though it only found people with similar problems who haven't fixed them)? should I try something else completely?

I would appreciate any advice! I can provide additional specs if necessary.

Dear Support,

I tried most of the forums, but didnt find a solution for this one. I have a Seagate external hard disk just 3 months old!!!

I have a hp laptop and was connecting to it using 3.0 USB port. I was getting the error

"PLEASE FORMAT THE DISK BEFORE YOU CAN USE IT" error.

I had quite lot of data in it, BUT, i did not mind about the data here, AS the hardware is more important for me, as its just 3 months old. So i just tried to format the disk. I also tried CHKDKS f:/R/X option and it completed successfully with out error which took almost 2 days completely. BUT formatting has become a problem as explained below.

Everytime i try to format the drive, say it starts formatting and it reaches some 16-20 % the drive disconnects itself as i hear a disconnection sound, and after that it connects itself again, as i hear sort of power on sound. Immediately i get an error from the format telling me that the drive is disconnected and the format cannot continue.

Also i again get back the PLEASE FORMAT THE DISK BEFORE YOU CAN USE IT"

PLEASE GUYS I WOULD REALLY BE GRATEFUL IF ANYONE OF YOU CAN assist me in guiding me, as to what would be the problem.

I have already tried uninstalling the USB HOST drivers from the HP website(as i have a hp system installed.)
The drive is not even detected currently in USB 2.0. Not sure what is the reason. I just want to save my hard disk, as i paid a lot for it and its just 3 months onl

I've been trying to find a solution to this online for a few days now and haven't come across anything. I have a Toshiba Satellite Fusion. It was working beautifully until the other day when I went to use it. It wouldn't power up so I assumed the battery was dead. Plugged it in and the charging light didn't come on but the computer powered on. The laptop recognizes that it's plugged in and shows that the batter has a 100% charge on it but will not run unless it's plugged and will shut off instantly when unplugged. I've tried using another charging cable with no luck and I'm unsure at this point what next step to take. I would pop the battery out and put it back in but this one doesn't have an easily accessible battery and I'm trying to avoid taking it apart if possible. I haven't located a battery reset button on the bottom either.

As noted in the title it's two months out of warranty otherwise I'd just send it in.

Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advanced.

For around two or three months the system has been crashing on a weekly or biweekly basis and wasn't so much of a problem as to interfere and warrant investigation on my part. Within the past few days, however, it has gotten much worse and now crashes at least once daily. I have done what I can with my limited computer skills and determined ntoskrnl.exe is the culprit and followed some potential solutions found on this forum as well as other sites but to no avail. Although it may be mere coincidence, I feel it is worth noting that the vast majority of crashes (90%+) occur when the computer has been left on but I am not currently at the desk working on anything. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!

Hello, I just changed my laptop that i used for 6 years to Dell Inspiron 15 5667. At first my audio isnt working and i sent it back to the company that i bought it from and they fixed that for me. But now, after around one month, while i travel to another country for my studies, my laptop sometimes freezes or i dont know what do u call it, the screen freezes at that moment and the mouse, keyboard is not responding too. I have to make a hard restart to solve this problem, any idea what is happening ? 

A:A problem about my newly bought (2 months) dell inspiron 15 5000 series

Hi WILLIAM WU WEI,
Is the exact system model Inspiron 5567? What is the current OS version installed on the system?
Are there any bluescreens / system crashes? Do you need to manually restart the system every time the system freezes? What applications are you using when the system freezes? When you power on the system from a cold boot, how long does it take for it to freeze?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1n3X2po - enter the service tag and download the BIOS, update and restart the machine and check.
Restart the system and check in safe mode - http://bit.ly/1LHcO2c 
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. Also, run an extended / thorough tests on the HDD and memory to check for any possible errors. 
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

A:down for months

I know, being patient is one of the rules, so I apologize in advance. Maybe the title I chose, "down for months" gives the impression that I'm not too interested in resolving this issue - I don't know. I am very interested in getting help with this. I realize this is free voluntary help, and I appreciate that. I noticed that I've had 28 or 29 views, but no one has replied. I'm honestly not trying to seem impatient. Just curious that's all. I have no idea what's wrong with this computer, or how to read that DDS log. My concern is that, since there have been 29 views, I'm assuming those who do know how to read that log have looked at it and decided not to get involved, for whatever reason. If someone who reads the log and doesn't want to help could just leave me a reply saying, "You're screwed - your computer is now an anchor" that would be very much appreciated also.

Thanks again and sorry if I seem impatient. I'm not . . . much

Hi,
I've used Windows Backup and Restore ever since I installed Win7 on this machine. There is a 750gb drive backed up to a 1.5tb WD Elements drive. I have backups set to run early Monday mornings.

Yesterday, Backup told me that my drive was full and there was no room for another backup. "manage space" told me that there were two backup sets, and one system image. The system image was 615gb. The datafile backups were 700gb, and there were two. The big one was from 5/08/11-2/20/12 and was 530gb while the second was from 2/20/12-2/20/12 and was 170gb. There were 80gb of free space.

I figured the second one was not a complete datafile backup and decided to throw caution to the wind and delete the earlier set, and then run Backup again, which it completed Tuesday afternoon. This resulted in a single datafile backup set from 2/20/12-2/21/12 which was 419gb. The system image is now 619gb, and there is 359gb of free space.


I always thought I was supposed to see multiple backup sets, but now I'm thinking it has no room to make a completely new backup set, so it just keeps appending deltas to the original set until it gets full. In that case I probably wouldn't see additional sets unless I was using, say, a 3tb drive. Is that correct?

A:Only one backup set after nine months?

its possible it is saving incremental backups, only saving the changes made since the initial backup,

Hey guys, about 2 months ago my 30" dell lcd went, video card and mobo ( replaced it all except the 30" dell which im still trying to fix) today my 20" dell went, is this is just a coincident or could there be something else im not considering, possibly a faulty APC battery backup, or maybe something in my computer that's causing this.

thanks.

A:2 DEAD LCD in 2 months!?!?!?!

This would be the time I'd start accusing poltergeists. I know they live in my home office and do all kinds of mischief at night while I'm asleep. They've only killed one Samsung LCD monitor here.

In the real world, it's likely a terrible coincidence. It's slightly possible that your APC unit allowed a nasty power glitch to pass in to these guys and kill them. That would be harder than winning the lottery. It's most likely you ended up with the statistical anomaly of two bad LCD monitors, along with that video card and motherboard.

Do you have a lot of power outages and glitches? Do you live in lightning alley or some area with lots of thunderstorms? I still remember the night when there was a thunderstorm here and I saw bolts of electricity flashing along the chain holding the ceiling fan in our bedroom. I fully expected to go downstairs and find our computers in a smoldering pile on the floor. Nothing - fully protected by APC UPS units! Then there was the time at work when a guy hit a power pole with his car down the street and caused a 27,000 volt line to fall on the 600 volt line feeding the building where I work. There were two washing machine sized APC UPS units in the lab - they both were fried and took some PCs with them.

I know this may not help much, but you may have enjoyed reading it.

Bye.

Okay. I just did the whole reply with HJT logs and do combofix like a billion times over at GeeksToGo. All the malware/spyware was removed (apparently) from my system. Now, I've been scanning my system weekly with AVG8 and Spybot, but I seem to be missing this trojan thats affecting things on my system.

Hi,

I'm fighting a BSOD for about 50 days now, It's happening randomly in different situations for a minimum of two times daily.

I'm suspecting that my memory is the problem (2x2GB Chaintech APOGEE) as it appears in a weird way in Gigabyte easytune (some times appear as one memory module, other times with different frequency and properties for each module).

I ran Memtest86 with one module at a time and there were no errors.

I also ran the Windows 7 Memory test on both modules with no errors.

CPU: Intel i7-930

Mainboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R

Display: Geforce GTS 250 1GB

I appreciate any help, This BSOD causes a serious pain & I lost work many times because of it.

Thanks in advance.

First thing to do is determine which device the above is pointing to. Do you have your chipset drivers installed?


Security Software: ??? I recommend either of these two setups:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Good and Free system security combination.
Download and install the security setup of your choice, update the software, and then run a full scan of your system for viruses and malware. If you only install MSE, I would also suggest installing and updating Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download, but do not start the free trial/full version of Malwarebytes. Run a full scan with Malwarebytes after updating it. Post back the results.


Which ASUS P5K motherboard do you have installed? Please fill in your system specs more accurately by using System Info - See Your System Specs as a guide. Fill the specs in on your profile, not in a post in this thread.

I have a simple 8 GB USB storage drive (dane-elec, looks just like this: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41tMIDsGrAL._AA260_.jpg) and have been using it for a long time now. Today I lent it to my friend so he could give me some little game he wanted to share. He put the file on the drive then gave it back to me, and the trouble started. When I put the drive in my computer it said "USB Drive Not Recognized."
I am unable to work around this no matter what I try. My computer is XP and my friend's is 7. I have tried it on both of these and two other XP computers, same error on all of them. All of these I know work using other USB devices, so it is this driver that's the problem. I have tried everything I can think of. The computer's troubleshooting was where I started. I have tried re-enabling it and have uninstalled the driver, though now it is not letting me reinstall, as it doesn't recognize it as what it is in the first place.
After all of this, it is still messed up. I am guessing whatever file my friend gave me got corrupted somehow, but I have never heard of a corrupted file causing this. I know this wasn't his fault, at least purposely. I have looked all over the net, wasting 2 hours trying to find a solution. I hope someone here has one.

A:First BSOD since 2 months

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:





There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.

Hi,
Since 5 months, I got a BSOD when I'm doing some basics things: Looking at Facebook, playing games (even flash games) I've decided after that to make a DualBoot to Windows 8, previously I had Windows 7, There was no BSOD for 3 days, and it began...

What did I make:
Memtest86+ = No errors, runned 4 passes
Tried to use one stick of ram = Worked for almost 1 day.
Swap the sticks of ram in the slots = Worked for 1 month (wtf happened there)
Ran driver verifier = got a blue screen with rdyboost.sys as the error.
Install all the drivers and make updates (Bios, chipset)
I've BSOD while writing this, the error flagged was rdyboost.sys, I think it's the error, but don't know how to delete or deactivate this thing..
Thanks in advice.

Forgot to add : I have this PC since 2 years.

I don't have time to look through all of those mini-dumps but the latest ones I have looked at don't seem to be pointing to anything in particular. This might indicate a hardware problem or a buggy/out-of-date driver.

You have some old drivers you should consider updating to Windows 8 64bit versions or un-installing/removing if un-needed:

AtiPcie.sys - ATI PCIE Driver for ATI PCIE chipset or ATI PCI Express (3GIO) Filter Found in my ATI video drivers (I have an Intel chipset) (2009): Driver Reference Table
AsIO.sys - Asus PCProbe Utility: Driver Reference Table (please un-install this and anything related to ASUS Utilities Suite, known BSOD creator)
ASACPI.sys - Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility. Also a part of many Asus utilities: Driver Reference Table (please un-install this, known BSOD creator)
LGBusEnum.sys - Logitech Keyboard: Driver Reference Table
netr73.sys - D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G122 Wireless USB Adapter(rev.C) ** DISCONTINUED **: Driver Reference Table

Please update your AMD chipset drivers:

AMD Chipset Drivers

Remove the drivers related to BSODs above using control panel/un-install.

Update your Logitech Keyboard driver: Keyboards

Not sure about the D-Link Airplus Wireless USB Adapter, there doesn't seem to be a Windows 8 64bit driver for it. It's quite an old piece of gear so I recommend not using it in Windows 8.

I've made multiple threads on Reddit, Tomshardware and 4chan and no one has been able to solve my issue.
In January 2015 I decided to upgrade my CPU and Motherboard so I took my PC to a local shop and had them do the upgrade. As I was moving from an AMD CPU to an Intel one they re-installed my OS as well and made sure all the drivers were up-to date. I took the PC home and started using it by day and leaving it on by night to torrent. Every morning I'd find that the PC had restarted over-night as it had crashed. After a week or so it would hang and then crash every day with error code 0x000000F4.

Every few months one of PCs at my home is really unstable. That PC is a 'spare' machine, so that wasn't a big problem. But it's really irritable because I have to set off power supply for a couple of minutes and hope it'll work stable again for next few months or so.

Could somebody check my 2 newest minidumps and analyze it? Yesterday I installed the drivers for gpu. Sadly, today saw BSOD again.

OS: Windows 8, but earlier on Windows 7 also was the same problem.
Problem: various BSOD every few months.

- RAM: 2x2GB, corsair dominator PC2-8500 (tested also with some Kingston 2x2GB sticks);
- power supply: 550W (bequiet darkpower pro);
- antivirus: Avast;

The first signs of instability: firefox crashes, then later (sometimes) Visual Studio crashes.
This time the crashes started when PC was running more than a day doing some calculations. As always, Firefox crashed first.

BSODs on Windows 8:
DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

One of my friends is having problems with monitors....

Apparently, the computer in question has went through 3 monitors and on its 4th one now, since May....

Anyone have any idea as to what would cause this?

All of the monitors haven't been brand new, but have not been used much either.

I instantly assumed a power issue... for the following reasons:

1.) He lives in very small area with very low quality power lines anyway

2.) The area we live in is known to have lots of power issues

3.) I took a look at the machine... when it first comes on, the power supply sounds like it buzzes, but then quits by the time it gets into windows..... this doesn't happen everytime, but sometimes.

The power supply is a 250 watt atx power supply.

Hi all,

Never tried using a forum before so please excuse me if I do something wrong.
I'm desperate.
I built this PC with a little help from a computer savant. He helped me chose the pieces and I put it together. It's about 15 months old. Recently it fried the main SSD from which the OS booted (after 11 months of use). It was of course my fault for filling the SSD more than 80% (I have no computer certifications, I go by instinct most of the time and then learn the hard way) ... so it wouldn't surprise me if I have something to do with the computer failing so much now.
I've also had the feeling that my system has never really ran at full potential.
I think my BIOS settings need seen to as well. It's all on "default", when I think they can be tuned according to the components... but I don't know how to do that

Anyway, I'll do my best to answer and follow the guide you provide;

? OS - Windows 7
? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? Nothing, I built the tower from scratch
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? No, pirated version of Windows Ultimate 7
? Age of system (hardware) 15 months
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? Twice, because fried the SSD in January-ish this year

? CPU AMD Phenom II X4 980 Quad-Core Black Edition 3.70 GHz
? Video Card AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
? MotherBoard Asus M5A88-M EVO AM3+
? Power Supply - brand &... Read more

Hi guys,
Yesterday I finally, after doing a lot of reading about this imaging, decided to go for it, with this macrium reflect.
But as soon as I opened the program (macrium) it offered me to create some disk (recovery disk?) which I accepted of course.
When it came to insert the CD which I did, this message popped up that the CD has to be erasable. It was a CD-R
Now I wonder, since it will be my first imaging (I should take a complete one) if one CD will be enough and what kind of CD should it be. A CD-RW??
Will this OS partition (Windows 7 professional) with a couple of programs installed, fit on a CD?? Should n't I use a DVD instead?? Maybe a couple of DVD's?? If so should it be DVD-RW
If it matters, my ODD is a DVD burner blue ray.
Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Macrium isn't going to image your HDD to the CD, it wants to create a one time recovery disc, that you can use to boot to, to run Macrium should you not be able to enter the windows environment, or prefer to boot from the disc to recover from a saved image. This is just creating a boot disc that will allow you to boot from the CD to run Macrium should you need to/desire. Go ahead and burn the disc, and boot from it to see how it works. You can then use Macrium to make an image of your hard drive. This will be on a 2nd HDD, internal or external, preferably. Backing up to CD's or DVD's would take many discs, and it... Read more

I turned of my pc so it wouldn't just be running for a while for no reason. i turned it on a week or 2 ago and there is just no picture. ive narrowed it down to my video card which is 2 years od, 7800 gt. i used that little digital to analog converter thing but i used the same one and plugged it into my laptop and works great. i've taken the video card out, cleaned the dust out, cleaned the inside of my computer. what should i do?
 

A:pc has been off for months, no now picture

No picture even after removing and reinserting the card? Try a new video card.

Hi tech guys, I am a non-tech chick with a big problem. I apolgize up front for the long message...anyway, I came across your site after one day turning on my PC and discovering it was hacked, nothing but porn site after porn site would come up. I searched for boredlife, which seemed to be a common thread in my newly reconfigured PC, and discovered the Christmas Eve post discussing spybot and adaware.
A bit of background...I have a cable connection to the web and never turn off my PC. For the longest time, I had it logged in as a controlled user, but it quit working and went in as admin to test a few things and then got hacked. (Ok, I admit, I never re-logged in as the controlled user). Then the porn started, so just to keep my daughter from the porn, I turned on the content filter. Annoying but successful....I was running zonealarm so I was a bit more confident than I should have been...but...it appears that whatever hacked me has the ability to reset zonealarm. Per your recommendations, I downloaded spybot and adaware and ran them, found lots of 'bad stuff' and for a day things looked better. But as soon as I rebooted, you guessed it, I'm back to some nasty porn sites as my home page. And now, I can't even go into Tools\Options in IE, because I get a message saying that the rights for this user are restricted (And I am in as administrator!). I tried logging in as the controlled user on my PC, but it is prompting me to change the password, saying it'... Read more

Hi,

Been meaning to write a note here for perhaps some tips and suggestions on what to do to get my 8.0 upgraded successfully to 8.1.

Months ago I was very excited to upgrade as I read of all the great improvements and now there is a note on line that 8.1 will get more upgrades in April.

So I got the banner across my desktop asking me if I wanted to upgrade so eventually I gave in and allowed the process to happen. I was very excited until the final reboot and well... I booted into a very grave mess.

I had NO background image, black screen. No task bar, no icons, only "a cursor in the dark" as I like to call it. Yea, I actually had a cursor I could move around and click but I couldn't "see" what I was clicking on. So upon trying what I could I called up Microsoft and after a while they asked permission to take over my machine and after 4 HOURS we both gave in and I had to do a full reinstall. At least the newer Windows saves all the older stuff in a Windows.old folder so not all was lost but enough to know I didn't want to go through that again.

Apparently the video drivers became corrupt along with Windows Explorer (that's what the MS tech was able to figure out). She was just as amazed as I was.

Anyway, I've laid off the upgrade again in hopes I could get here and ask what it was I should do before trying again? My video drivers are all up to date (as they were the day all that happened). The only thing I had running was the scrip... Read more

A:Tried and failed with 8.1 months ago

Have had mixed results with 8.1 here, had to revert to 8 on some laptops, am postponing any more upgrade until some time after 8.1.1 is out and has been discussed\reviewed.

But in all circumstances, IMO move nr1 in any upgrade process is to 1st do some good imaging (easeus here for xp\w7, macrium for w8).

As the subject line implies, I've now had 2 HD crashes in 4 months. I'm running a Lenovo PC with SATA drives. Here's the thing...both times it was my secondary drive. The original drive is fine...so far.

The first time this happened, I had 3 drives hooked up. My C drive, a 2nd drive connected to the SATA connection on the MB, and then I had an external drive enclosure (USB). First, the drive in that enclosure stopped. The bios could find no sign of it, even when I connected it directly to the MB. It will spin for a few seconds and then stop.

The second time this happened (today), the drive was my 1T Seagate that is relatively new. I had earlier performed a Photoshop batch script that adjusted about 700 photos on that drive. All went well. And hour later, I got a BSOD. I allowed Windows to perform the startup thing (I forget exactly what it said) and it couldn't because it could not access the drive. Every time I would try to start the PC, it would go BSOD. Until I disconnected that 2nd drive. Then the PC started right up...no problems. Tried connecting the 2nd drive again and it can't see it. The drive spins up but can't be found.

So my question is, could the onboard controller, or something else (power supply?) be causing this or is it simply a coincidence that I've lost 2 drives in 4 months. I don't think I've lost 2 drives in the previous 10 years

Ideas? Thanks in advance....
