Q: Omni Page .exe should run internally

Hi Folks,

i am using omnipage 16 version for OCR purpose,i want to run the .exe in my application but the condition is it should run in the background meaning (NO GUI)..if i give parameters to it should take and processes it and giveback the output..the whole thing should be done in the background because the client shouldnot know about this Omnipage.

this is my urgent requirement.

Preferred Solution: Omni Page .exe should run internally

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 am not sure omnipage was intended for this purpose. I.e. the developers of omnipage want people to know that they are using their programme.

I have a windows XP-media os and a HP 5510 all in one.
I can scan the document and make the necessary changes with no problems. The problem occurs when I print, the printed page is off set to the right. I contacted tech support and they stated this was because of the XP media os. I loaded the software on to another computer with windows xp office....same problem. Page preview looks good, all my parameters appear correct, but the page does not print correctly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you for your time.

my sister accidentally dropped a stool on the corner of my computer. the corner is now coming looseAssuming that we are talking about a laptop, I would have to say that there's a possibility of internal damage that you will only see if you take it apartThe stool possibly could have jostled the memory loose.

I'm really confused by your router base addresses. Are these routers really all running with the NAT layer enabled, or did you configure then as WAP's?

I have an ancient Pentium D system - recently replaced it with an i5. I tried to connect the system to get some data off the drives. Originally the system had a Samsung 840 SSD internally and a 500 GB WD Cavier mounted externally. The case for the WD has died, so I mounted it internally. Now when I try to start up the computer I get an error message bootmgr not found.

Short of buying another case (which I don't want to do) is there some way to fix this?

For the past few days my new drive hasn't worked on my PC at all, I was copying stuff over to it as I suddenly got an I/O error. I restarted my system to find that the drive had disappeared completely, not only in file explorer but in disk management as well.

Recently I took out the drive and tried it as an external drive on another computer, it loaded fine without any issues. I figured there must be a problem with the cables, so I took it back and used the external slot on my PC to try it. But it still doesn't appear anywhere on my computer.

It's a WD 1 TB WD10EZEX.

EDIT: it seems I found the issue, the cables were loose. Nevermind.

Try rebooting your computer before plugging in the external drive. Wait a few minutes after boot before doing so. You may be dealing with a sudden drive failure.

Hey there,

Long Story Short: I'd like to transcribe audio files into written words internally in my computer. Ideas/solutions are welcome.

I'm thinking if I could figure out how to setup a "Line In/Out" thing so that audio from one program could be heard by another I may be good, or at least off to a good start.

Putting a computer speaker next to a computer microphone has too great of an audio quality loss for transcription programs. I'd like to use Google Now, since it seems to be more capable of distinguishing from background noise than Google Docs, but I'll do whatever works.

The only reasonably good (better than google) version of Dragon Dictation works by learning 1 voice, so it wont work in my situation; between different lecturers in different lecture halls. IBW Watson's free online transcription API will allow you to upload files for transcription, but it functioned just as poorly or worse than Google Docs.

I'd like to transcribe my class lectures.I have audio recordings of the lectures that I take with a portable Zoom H1 device, then I am able to get the audio files onto my computer off of its microSD card. Generally, putting this devise near the lecturer results in less background noise than keeping it at my desk; so transcribing prerecorded files would be ideal. Google Now seems to have the best transcription ability by far, and it seems to be superior to whatever Google is using for transcription in Google Docs. By usi... Read more

Hi, all, first post here, site looks great.

I run a small network here at home and have installed a web server on one of the PCs. All works ok but I can't view the URL as other internet users would. I have to use the internal IP address instead of the given domain name in the browsers address bar.

I know it works for people outside of my network as a friend tried it for me.

It would be nice just to be able to punch in the URL and see it like others do.

Any help appreciated.

Hello, forgive my ignorance but I am new to this. I have an iMicro 500gb SATA external hard drive hooked up to my pc via usb. One day my pc just stopped recognizing it. If I went to device manager I could see it with no errors. If I went to "computer" the drive would show up with a designated letter but the name of the drive was not visible anymore. When I tried going into it would say disk not accessible. I tried formatting it and couldn't do that either. I tried same thing with it hooked up to a different pc and nothing. Any ideas anybody??

This has been going on for a couple of weeks so I decided to take the drive out of its casing and try to hook it up internally into my pc. Inside my pc I have 2 dvd drives connected via orange SATA cable and my original HHD connected via blue SATA cable. Since I didn't have a spare SATA cable to try on my external drive, I unplugged one of the orange cables going to my dvd drive and I used that to plug in my external drive. When I booted my computer I got a message:

"Hard drive SELF MONITORING SYSTEM has reported that a parameter has exceeded its normal
operating range. Dell recommends that you back up your data regularly. A parameter out of range

Ran into an interesting problem and I'll try and explain it as thoroughly as possible.

I'm able to browse websites as normal without any notable issue however we ran into an issue when we went to remotely connect to a business application using the external IP address. Tried pinging the IP to no avail, then tried ping google also to no avail. The IP resolves to the correct hostname and I can nslookup but no go on the ping. Tracert also resolves the correct hosts but fails on all hops. Upon changing the internal configured IP I can ping any address for about a minute and then it starts timing out again no matter what I change the IP to.

Have already tried the following:
- Checking the host file (all default)
- Reinstalling the NIC
- Winsock reset, dns flush, route flush
- Running netalyzr, came up with the following which I don't believe to be an issue
Code:
The resolver at 192.168.15.1 (win-na.telstra.net) could not process the following tested types:Large (~3000B) TXT records fetched with EDNS0

I just replaced the HDD in my desktop PC with a 500 GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD, but I am wondering if it is possible to connect two SSDs. Is there an adapter I could use? Or would connecting two drives to just the one connection slow everything down by creating an energy flow bottle neck?

I am sort of new to computers, about 4 1/2 years, and don't know a whole lot. I read something about SATA controller cards adding extra storage to computers, but I don't know what they are. Could something like this be used internally to add an extra SSD?

Hi All, not sure if this is the right forum but im having an issue getting a cloned disk to work on a Dell Laptop.

The laptop is a Dell Latitude E7440 and its running Windows 7.

I have used a bootable Clonezilla USB drive to copy the internal 64 GB SSD to a usb adapter connected 500GB SSD. The clone completed successfully and upon booting the ssd drive connected through usb it works flawlessly.

However, when i remove the internal drive and replace it with the new cloned drive, it throws me a windows failed to start error on a black screen, and there are no options. It tells me to use a windows repair disc to fix it.

Any suggestions on why its only working when plugged in through the USB?

Any additional information you need from me?

A:Cloned SSD and it wont boot internally. Only boots from USB

When you cloned the drive, did you clone all partitions on the drive? If not that could be the problem. Second cloning is iffy at best and not always successful. Third when you clone you clone the entire drive or partition including bad sectors, bad data blocks, etc. Best option is to Image (backup) the entire drive - all partitions to a separate drive and then create the new drive from the backed up image.

Hey guys,

I recently re-installed W7 64bit, and ever since, my Maxtor 3200 external HDD does not show up.

It is recognised under device manager, but in 'my computer' it comes up with a different name (local disc) and is not clickable.

I thought that since the HDD lit up, and it was recognised by BIOS and device manager, the disk itself was fine, and the problem was the external HDD case, (and not the IO panel on the computer, as the HDD did not work in another system either)

In my desktop, there's a HDD cage with two HDD's in it. I want to temporarily replace the external HDD as the second HDD so I can copy the files over the the primary HDD.

There's a spare molex connecter in the case, but there is no slot for it on the external HDD, unlike the two inside the desktop.

Kind of unsure how to go about doing this?

Hello,
I have a external mybook hard drive that I have been using to store many of my media files in for the past few years and recently when I try to access the drive my computer says that the usb has malfunctioned, I have tried all of the USB ports on my computer but have come to the conclusion that it is the USB on the EHD itself that has malfunctioned because nothing else I hook to the computers USB will come up with that error.

So now I am trying to install the EHD internally, it is a regular hard drive just like the one I have in the computer allready but when I try to start the computer up it says the BIOS is not installed. I have tried setting the jumpers to tell the computer which drive is the master and which is the slave, I would like to just use the EHD as a storage drive.

Can anyone give me any information on what I might have to do to access this drive? Is it possible to install a bios to the drive without loosing the data on it allready, That is my main concern is preserving and accessing the data on the drive...

I have a recently newly built PC and I'm having some trouble with some Sata HDDs and getting them to work, I'll try provide as many details of the problem that I'm experiencing and also things I've already tried to hopefully save some time.
The OS SSD is working fine but I also have two Sata HDDs plugged in that windows sees but cannot use in any way, all I get is "location is not available" and "access denied" errors? If i remove the drives and plug them into an external USB dock they function perfectly but as soon as I put them back into the PC I cannot access them again?
Whilst connected internally I cannot format/partition in disk management nor can I change ownership in security settings. The only thing I have been able to achieve is to use the "CLEAN" function in diskpart in dos. Whilst in the external dock I can do everything including partition/format/set ownership and access as normal.
I've tried different ports on the mobo (SSATA & SATA) and Ive tried changing the bios setting to IDE & AHCI but no change. I downloaded MiniTool Partition Wizard but also no joy with it.
The two drives a WD 2TB & 4TB with no jumpers on them.
Has anyone got any ideas for me to try? I'm just about out of ideas

Thanks
Danny

ps: in the attached pic it looks like I'm using a user without admin rights when I go to change ownership on these drives but I am! That's part of the problem, I only get this error on these drives not any others.

hey all,

i have an external hard disk, kinda like a laptop hard disk placed in a metal casing. the hard disk is 40GB and its around 3 years old. it is practically dying and its just trial and error if it works whenever i connect it to my laptop thru usb.

however, i was just wondering whether it is possible to physically reinstate it to a better condition, say fix the parts internally.

i reckon that my hard disk is at the state its in because of the obvious constant movement and shaking its been through, during its use. whenever i plug it into my computer, most of the time it is not detected, but on lucky days, usually on cold days for some reason, it works. i feel that maybe the casing has been pressed too close to the disk head and that whenever its 'hot' it contracts making it even compressed(?). just a theory.

so my question is whether it is possible (not practical) to fix this particular hard disk internally.

the rest is my other hd drive but not connected. Now i want to add atleast 1 or 2 hd to my computer. So I start adding the first one which is the #1 drive the ST31000528AS. I plug the cables to the hd then turn on my computer. But its always freezes at the bios screen then it will turn off automatically.

I tried all the other hd drives from 1-3 drives i listed above. They got the same results. So i searched about the problem and i found this thread Bios screen freezes on startup . I also used the disk clean command. To format my hd. But the problem still persists.

That problem occured only when i connect it internally but when i connect it externally its working fine. What do you think is the problem?

I tried replacing the sata cables and connecting it to different sata port. But got the same results :3

The Hard Drive J is the ST31000528AS. Connected externally and it`s working fine.


SPECS :
OS: windows 7 x64bit
CPU: Inter Core i5 3.10 GHz
Motherboard: H61H2-M12
Memory: Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4g (8gb overall)

A:Hard Drive works externally but not internally

Hello hinaruu!

Just to make sure if I have understood correctly.

You have 4 internal hard drive, one of them (ST500DM002) is your OS drive, which is 500GB SATA III. You have only the OS drive connected to the motherboard and when you try to connect any of the other three HDDs to any of the ports using multiple cables, your BIOS freezes and PC turns off? But you can without a problem connect the drives externally?

Are you receiving any messages, or beeping sounds from the motherboard? I would first advise you to back up anything important from the OS drive to another one.

Then disconnect your OS drive and plug it to another port and start the PC. Does it work? Then power off again, and plug one of the other three drives on the first SATA port where the OS drive previously was. Try powering up again. This should give you sense if the ports have a problem or the drives.

Then reset your BIOS. Carefully pull the CMOS battery out for about 15-20 seconds then put it back on place. Be very very careful! Then press the power button of the PC for 15 seconds to discharge any remaining power stored in the capacitors. By discharging the power, the CMOS memory will reset, therefor should reset the BIOS. Then connect the drives again, firmly, to data and power. Test again.

I see your motherboard has 4 SATA ports, which are SATA II. Some of the drives are SATA III, but the ports are backwards compatible, so this shouldn't be the issue. But I believe that your motherboard ports may be ... Read more

Hello everyone,


I've got a Seagate Momentus hard drive taken from a laptop that I intend to use as an external storage device. When plugged directly into my laptop's hard drive slot, it works fine. When I try to use it externally with an enclosure, it is not recognised (on the same computer from which it was taken) by either Windows Explorer or Disk Management (yes I did a rescan).

When plugged into another laptop via the enclosure, however, it is detected in Disk Management, although not in Windows Explorer. Unfortunately, Disk Management doesn't provide me with any useful options for reformatting it. It simply says "no media", and doesn't detect any data or capacity. When using SeaTools for Windows while still plugged in externally with this secondary laptop, it fails virtually all tests and refuses a full data scrub.

I have since plugged the hard drive back into my primary laptop's hard drive slot (from which it was taken) and am running Seatools (so far, so good).

Any idea what's going on? How can I get this hard drive to operate as a normal external drive? Thanks in advance.

UPDATE - I reinserted the hard drive into my laptop, successfully reformatted it via Disk Management, chose not to assign it a drive letter, and I still have the same problems. My secondary laptop detects the hard drive when connected externally via USB hard drive enclosure within Disk Management, but not within Windows Explorer. More frustrating - wh... Read more

Maybe the external enclosure or USB cable is bad, that prevents Windows recognizing the drive? Try changing the USB cable or the enclosure...

Hey my laptop only has 100gb on it so recently I’ve found that my windows folder is 62gb when I right click on it and go property’s, but when I enter the folder and select all the files and look at property’s it only finds about half of what it said before! Idk if this is a bug or glitch where the hard drive just thinks it’s full was hoping for a few way to help sort it out? and help get it back down to a normal size so I can use the space for actual stuff

A:My windows folder is double that when internally examined !

Hi and welcome. I use a program called Tree Size Free to determine what is on a drive.

It is likely your page and hibernate files and/or your system restore file.

I wonder what it would take to record (using e.g. Audacity) the sound leaving my sound card? Lets say I listen to a newscast and want to keep the entire thing or snippets of it for reference - what would I need to do that?

Windows (7) reports under the Sound/Recording tab (right-click speaker icon in notification area): 'no audio devices are installed'.

Audacity says when I press 'record': 'Error while opening sound device.'

Thanks

Hey Techspotters.

I recently acquired a new Compaq Presario CQ56-101SA notebook with a 2 year warranty. Problem is after two weeks the display appeared with vertical and horizontal white lines and in the top left hand corner a bright white and blue 'blobbed' image appeared and has gotten bigger from top left heading to bottom right. I immediately informed Compaq/HP who arranged to have my laptop collected and sent for repair under warranty. I subsequently received a call from HP Engineering Dept that the LCD screen had been cracked inside (there is no physical external damage) due to undue pressure or 'knock' to the screen and that it was deemed as accidental damage and not covered under warranty! Now I can categorically say that to my knowledge, nothing untoward has happened to this laptop (it is 2 weeks old!!). I open it and then I close it and it has had normal use for the 2 weeks that i have had it. HP wanted £199 to fix it or alternatively return it free of charge unfixed. No amount of persuasive talk from me would change her mind so I opted to have the notebook returned to me. Now I could fix this as a new LCD screen is relatively cheap to purchase (£50-£70 online) but I fear that if I do this, it will invalidate my 2 year warranty.

Has anyone else had any similar issues with Compaq and HP notebooks or have I just been extremely unlucky here and suffered a 'night gremlin notebook attack'.

I would very much appreciate advice on w... Read more

A:Compaq CQ56 101SA notebook cracked LCD internally

I've had to install a new lcd screen in a toshiba about 3 years ago. I was very careful to not leave striped screws or scratched paint near any of the screw holes. a year later my hdd died and my laptop was still under warranty( extended which i purchased) and they installed a new hdd.

That was a few years ago and a different company. I'm not sure about other experiences, but in mine I believe since I didn't visibly damage anything they couldn't have known if I opened it or not at any time.

Microsoft Swears It?s Thoroughly Testing Windows 10 Updates Internally

If you?ve been in the Microsoft ecosystem long enough, you probably know that the firm had and still has, but at a substantially reduced scale, a problem with updates, as many of these releases end up causing more harm than good on a number of PCs.

Living proof if the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (and obviously, Windows 10 cumulative updates) which is still causing issues for some users, including bugs that hide partitions and data stored on it.

Updates tested both internally and externally
There were complaints that Microsoft no longer has its own internal testers because of the reorganization started after the takeover of Nokia?s Devices and Services unit and which had thousands of people being laid off. But according to a statement released to ZDNet, Microsoft denies all of these and says it still has internal testers whose role is to determine issues with updates before they are released.

?Ensuring our customers have a positive experience with our products and services is incredibly important to us and we take the quality and reliability of our software seriously. When we deliver updates to more than 350 million devices, those builds have gone through extensive internal and external testing,? the statement reads.

?The vast majority of our customers have a high-quality, positive experience with our updates and our goal is an issue-free experience for everyone. For those who don't,... Read more

This is coming internally form my computer..

I purchased Windows XP Home and installed it on my computer, but sometimes, especially if I am playing a game , it will make beeping noises, very much like the old arcade game PONG!!
weird..
I don't know what it is doing this, but I get the same sounds on different games, it will also do this when I am just in Windows and not playing a game.

This is internal and not from my speakers...
Any ideas?
Another Q I have is what is the diffeence between XP Home and Pro?

Thank you!

There are a few diffrences between home and Pro, the obvious of the two being that pro looks more professional, a little neater.

Earlier this month, Microsoft seeded a new Windows 10 build 10122 to Windows Insiders, which was available for fast ring users. The build came with its own set of bugs and issues for those with an AMD GPU, as well as frequent Spartan and IE crashes. Earlier today, Microsoft's Windows Insiders head Gabriel Aul revealed a new Windows 10 build 10130 is being tested internally.

Hey everyone, I have got a really strange problem. Any help would be appreciated!
I have a few small websites hosted on a fedora server, and on ANY WIRED WINDOWS box, when i go to visit the websites hosted on my server,

internally, the page does not load.

Sometimes parts of the page get loaded, some of the images etc, but the browser (firefox, ie, anything) never fully gets all of the data. It

just circles around and eventaully times out.

I can visit the outside world fine, any other site, but as soon as i go to an internal site on the very same wired client, they fail.

Here is some other information:

--> The server is hosted on a wired connection

--> When i boot up a wired machine with Fedora and request a page on an internal site, it works. windows, wired clients are the only ones

that fail.

--> If you go to our sites on any wireless connection, on any operating system on any type of box, they work.

--> I have tried using a HTTP tracing utility such as Fiddler, and it just circles around as well, no information regarding the request is

displayed.

--> I have tried putting all the cards to 100megabit full duplex instead of auto negotatiated, still dont come up on windows.

I know the network, router etc are all good, because the same wired client booted on fedora works no problem, and the sites get served up to

the outside world just fine.

I've pulled my hair out for four hours trying to figure out what's wrong here. I have checked every setting on every configuration page for both routers looking for an issue, and everything is set up correctly. All internal subnet connections work and the external port tests work, but the connection still refuses when attempting externally. If anyone has any advice for what I might be missing, please tell me!

(I am posting from work, so I believe I have the models right, I will need to double-check this evening. Apologies in advance if the information is insufficient.)

The setup:
Two computers running RealVNC servers on a Linksys router. The router is connected to a D-Link router/modem, which then connects to my DSL provider. (Again, these models might not be exact--I'll double check tonight and clarify the models I'm using.)

The Linksys router creates a 192.168.2.X subnet. The Linksys router has an internal IP of 192.168.2.1. The computers have static IP addresses of 192.168.2.10 and 192.168.2.11. The Linksys router has an external IP of 192.168.1.2.

The D-Link router/modem creates a 192.168.1.X subnet. The D-Link router/modem has an internal IP of 192.168.1.1. The router/modem has an external dynamic IP in the range of 184.7.X.X. I have also configured a freedns.afraid.org to route a static address to the dynamic address...for now, I'm keeping it manually updated, but will set up an auto-update later.

Not sure if this is the correct catogory to post my question in, but here goes. I have a HP Omni 100, about 6 yrs old. About a month ago, I went to the restore function & my computer crashed. Now, all I keep getting on my screen, after the initial start up is select keyboard function, or something of that nature. I hope I have not lost everything I have in that computer, since I have pics I cannot replace. Two or three months ago, it started to act funny. The page I was on would turn into a smaller square in the middle of the screen, and that square would be full of multi colored lines.(Like snow on a tv screen) Now I cannot get it to do anything but show the keyboard page????? Please advise as to what I could or should do. THANK YOU Roger

The first time I tried to turn the computer on this morning,the little blue light on the lower right corner DID light up but nothng else happened. After watching/waiting for 10 minutes, i held my finger on the power button to turn the machine off, waited a few minutes, hit the button again. The second time, the fan started going but the blue light did NOT come on this time. I waited 5 minutes and nothing happened. This time, I just pulled the plugg out of the wall and waited 10 minutes, plugged it back in, hit the button, same thing,,,fan engaged, no blue light,,,fan just spinning/whirring but nothing comes up on the screen. I have another one of these computers and i switched power supplies and the power supply is fine.
