I bought the HP Omen laptop about four days ago. The day after I bought it, I started playing games. From time to time (about every 15 minutes), my WASD keys would get stuck and repeat themselves in games (my character would keep walking). I would have to press the key, regardless of the amount of pressure, to stop the "key spam".  I disabled sticky and filter keys, as well as made sure that the keyboard's drivers were up to date, and that the device wouldn't be in power saving mode (anyways, I always game with my charger plugged in).  I'm sort of speechless, considering I bought this less than a week ago, and the keyboard keys don't have anything under them (I've been very cautious about not letting anything slip under there) and that the keys are starting to latch during games.  Another speculation, it also seems to happen mid-way through games, usually when my CPU and GPU are at their highs, when my computer's temperatures are higher (75-85 C for both CPU and GPU). If anyone could help me figure this out, thank you!

I bought this laptop HP Pavilion Notebook 15-ab029tx on 2-Sep-2015 for ?53k. Ever since I bought this laptop I have been having problems while playing games. The Keys get virtually stuck after continous playing. The problem is not specific to a set of keys. It is aways random. If I am playing a racing games then any of the ARROW keys or the spacebar will get stuk virtually or if I am playing FIFA then W,A,S,D or the ARROW keys get stuck. The player will keep going in the pressed direction. I have to find out which key is malfunctioning and then de-press it to stop the malfunctioning. I have talked to HP Support and they sent a representative to look into the issue and they had to finally replace the whole keyboard. But the problem was still there. Then I got a BIOS update, that also did not resolve the issue. So I had to talk to HP Support again. This time the representative asked me to first check it with an external keyboard (I was running Windows 10 at this moment). There was no problem with the external keyboard. Then he asked me to format my whole laptop. So I reinstalled Win 8.1 from the recovery disks provided by HP and I am still getting the same issue. Also, I am not getting the free Win 10 update which I had earlier. I have done the following:1. Tried an external keyboard (no key malfunction)2. BIOS update F.81 - No luck3.

Hello,

When playing any game on this Qosmio X-70 laptop, the keys are often not very responsive and I have to press the keys often multiple times for them to do what they should. Outside of games all keys respond without any problems. It is unfortunately making playing games on a gaming laptop somewhat impossible.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks.

A:Qosmio X-70 - keys very often not working in games but fine otherwise

Very often means not always but sometimes. Correct?
Did you notice the keyboard problem playing just some particular games or all games?
Is this issue noticeable using external keyboard?

As the title says, the escape and enter keys do not work in some games. I have just purchased a new laptop and in NFS:Most Wanted and Burnout Paradise (the MENUS), escape does not work. When I am actually in the game, driving I CAN use escape to pause(bring up menu). The enter key however does not work AT ALL in these games.
There was a third game as well (not a driving game), in which they do not work, but I do not remember which one.
I also play a lot of Football Manager 2009, and the escape and enter keys work fine!

It's not a SERIOUS problem as most games allow the use of the mouse to click 'continue' or whatever, but they two keys ARE convenient! So what do I do?

My new laptop is an Acer Aspire 6530 (2,1Ghz Turion, 4GB DDR2, 1GB Radeon)

Hey guys,

so my bass sudenly started working only while playing games. When i play a video on Youtube, or a song saved in my PC, no bass at all.

Please help?

A:Bass working only while playing games etc.

"Refresh" the sound and see if that helps.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for your sound device to highlight is and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NO uninstall the driver. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This fixes many corruptions.

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

A:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

Hello, I'll try to explain it as simply as I can.

I'm having a problem whenever I open up a any game AND am using a chat app like discord or skype, after a few seconds, my mic stops working. If you look in the recording settings, the green bars are not showing up, so windows is not detecting my mic. The only way to temporarily fix the issue is by disabling/re enabling the mic I am using and leaving and rejoining the call. But the problem comes right back.

I've tried multiple headsets on the same PC (2 HyperX Cloud IIs and a Turtle Beach X12) and the only PC that has the mic turning off randomly during gaming sessions is my own.
 
At first I thought it was my HyperX cloud's USB soundcard but we had a replacement sent to us and it still had the problem.
 
The weird part about it is it only occurs while playing games, and that me changing my default format under the advanced tab in headset microphone properties makes it work again.

Hi there, first time posting here so forgive me if a few things might be out of place.

My laptop's been having BSODs for the last year or so now (I don't use it that often) but it's becoming increasingly worse. I've had BSOD error messages from MemoryManagement to "A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught." Some of them were resolved (kind of) by just updating drivers here and there, but I think it's still ridiculed with errors.

So I figured it's about time I should try and resolve some of it. I've attached the .zip from the SF Diagnostic Tool. Any help would be much appreciated and if there's anything else I need to attach let me know.

So I'm hoping someone can help me out. I picked up a new graphics card (specs found in the dxdiag report), worked great...for a bit. Whether I'm streaming video, DL content, working on homework with 10 different apps running+music, no issues.

However, when I play games (particularly WoW, I know...tacky, don't judge me!) periodically I will get game freeze>black screen then a notification sound from my comp, and then after 5-10 secs the game starts running. If I minimize the game, Win10 gives me a notification that says that the display driver stopped working. I have monitored the cards temp., and my computers CPU/RAM load and nothing seems to be out-of-whack.

I have tried updating my drivers, but windows says that they are up-to-date. Probably not the best way to check, but I'm hoping for some input on strategies to try so that I can fix this problem. Dxdiag info attached.

Hey,

Install latest bios for the motherboard from Gigabyte.com.

Install latest EasyTune 6, which is from this year, for your board. (In Utility section of downloads.)

Install latest drivers for both mouse and keyboard from manufacturers' sites.

Your motherboard has both USB 1.1 and 2.0 ports. Use 2.0 only if possible and do not use any hubs, if possible.

Install this for the AMD chipset drivers and storage drivers. Both are at: AMD Chipset Drivers <<< (assuming you have 64 bit Windows)

Hi all, I have an odd question. My keyboard, a Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 keyboard, isn't registering F1-F2, nor the "at" symbol. It recognizes capital letters, and !#$%^&*()_. At is the only symbol not registering.
Also, I can type the number "2".

If someone can put me in the right direction would be great, I'd love to be able to type again.

Hey Everyone

Started typing on my internal laptop keyboard today and reliased that mainly keys a b and n were not working.
So I decided to clean them by taking off the key and white holder, then used a cloth to clean all the dust etc.. both under the rubber button and around it. This still didn't work however, so I then decided to uninstall and reinstall the driver as well. However this didn't work either.

Its probably best to try and buy a new one off e-bay, but before I do this does anyone else have any suggestions?

Hello,

Lately I've been suffering from crashes. When playing games like PayDay 2 and League of Legends. The game suddenly crashes and a bunch of running programs show "... Has stopped working". It doesn't crash into a BSOD but the programs won't start again. Except for 1 time I actually got a BSOD(Dump attached), I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the other crashes, but it did occur during playing PayDay 2.

When the crashes started occurring I bought a new hard drive(Needed more space) and installed a clean installation of Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit. This didn't work so I ran MemTest86+ 5+5 passes and no errors. I also tried testing my GPU's one by one, also no result.

I tried using Verifier but the crashes don't result into a BSOD. So haven't got any useful feedback on that part.

I've also tried the repair-install guide, but when clicking upgrade it says I've already got a equal or higher version of windows installed.

I'm kind of clueless on what to do now.

Thanks in advance,

But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

A:Fn Keys and Audio Keys not working after updates.

You probably updated the power management driver.  Its affecting a lot of people.  Its affecting OSD and Fn keys.  See below post.  The solution is to ROLL back the power management driver.

I have a Commodore Laptop (Argentina) and all the keys that have a FN function attached to them do not work as their normal function any more - this happened after lending the laptop to my kids....

I think it may be FN lock, but can-t find any way to unlock it.

Any ideas please.

Many thanks.

A:Keys that have FN functions on them not working as normal keys

Check the Manual on the model's Support Downloads webpage for key combo to unlock: http://www.ehow.com/how_4968993_unlo...ey-laptop.html

Try updating or reinstalling the hotkeys driver from the model's Support Downloads webpage. Driver Install - Device Manager

While there look also for any downloadable fixes for these key functions or related.

It may also be disabled in msconfig>Startup. You can google the listings there to see what they're for. Normally you only need your AV checked and the rest are freeloaders, but some models require hotkey software to be running at startup if it provides anciliiary functions like backlighting, function toggling, etc.

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Your reports are not definitive and educated guess says that this is the cause of your problem
What is the asushwio.sys file?
Make a system restore point and then uninstall the associated software or update driver.

I have a twin brother who is upstairs and he used wireless he lagged alot and he only had problems if I was on my computer and that went on for a while. I have a grandfather who sat infront of me while I was on my pc and I couldnt do it so I moved upstairs but I didnt have a wireless pci adapter for my pc I had a wifi adapter which you plug in the wall to wirelessy connect to the router downstairs and I just put my pc's ethernet into the wireless adapter. I used that for a little bit until I couldnt take the high ping I was getting in game servers forcing me to just move my pc in the corner of my room and I havent been on it since. I have been playing ps4 using a wireless connect to the router downstairs. I have connection problems off and on but not every day. I today just got back on my pc and I am expieriencing constant lag and disconnection from games and discord. My router is the NightHawk AC1700 ,my Adapter is a tplink adapter. What can I do to increase my internet speeds I just dont want so much lag and horrible ping when I play my pc games with my friends.. and a reminder my router is downstairs with the modem.

Hi Guys,

I have issues with my desktop. I randomly get the bsod (kernel data inpage error). I thought it started after I installes the new ATI drivers. So I tried older drivers but without any result. After that I thought it was an issues with Win 7 64bit. So I installed 32bit. But still I get the bsdod.

can you please help?

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool&#63;
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 &#40;SP1&#41; for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on.

Hello All

I have an HP Pavilion p7-1254 (at least started as that, had some stuff upgraded, explained below), AMD A6-3620 2.2Ghz Quad Core with AAHD2-HL board; save you the time of looking it up if needed. What happens is the system with will just freeze. Occasionally the audio that was playing with stutter infinitely like a skipping CD. Rarely I notice the system will stutter once or twice before totally freezing, happens in a couple seconds. But mostly, it just stops. When it freezes, the only option is to hard reboot.

I have had this problem for quite some time, probably about a year or two. At first I really didn't notice any consistency in the crashes, seems totally random. Some times it would freeze while browsing any random page, be it videos, forums, ad ridden or ad free. Any browser as well; Chrome, Firefox, IE. It also crashes when playing some games although not other games that have higher requirements; e.g. Guaranteed to crash, probably within 10 mins, if I play '8-bit Boy' on Steam (about as low res as implied) but I can go on 4 and 5 hour binges on Elder Scrolls Online or Skyrim with no crashes. I have recently noticed that YouTube videos (any video) is a guaranteed crash within a 20-30 seconds.

I have tried everything I have been able to find to do, to try and fix this issue; but none have worked. So far the hardware parts that have been replaced with new components are the RAM (now 2x4GB GEIL Enhanced Corsa PC3-12800), HDD (now 2TB WD Cavi... Read more

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

netr28x.sys 2/25/2009 11:02:09 PM
How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Hey, all! So my volume keys are being strange-- the mute one is now always lit up, even if the volume is up. And when I try to increase volume, unless I hold the volume + key continuously, it mutes the volume rather than increasing. I used to be able to just tap the volume +  key and it would increase marginally. The same thing happens with volume-. I don't know if this makes sense, but it's a problem that suddenly popped up and I'm not sure why! Thanks
