Laptop keeps dying - no record of it.

Q: Laptop keeps dying - no record of it.

Hello all,

I have a Samsung Q430 laptop with a core i5-460M processor. It keeps dying on me. Not consistently, or with any discernible pattern. The screen just turns black and it shuts down. When I turn it back on I don't get any sort of message, it just restarts as normal. When I go to the reliability monitor, there is no record of an improper shutdown. This is incredible frustrating, as the computer runs great and is plenty fast for me despite being four years old. Does anybody have thoughts on what the issue could be? Last night I did a clean re-install of Windows 7, but the problem is still there. I keep everything up to date.

Thanks for any advice! David

Preferred Solution: Laptop keeps dying - no record of it.

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.)

Sounds like a heat problem to me. Try installing SpeedFan and monitor the temps.

Hi,

I bought a new laptop - HP Compaq Presario, Intel Pentium Processor T4300 (2.1 GHz), 500 GB Hard Drive, 4 GB RAM, nVidia GeForce G 103M with 512 MB DDR2 dedicated graphics memory. After a week, i got the firs blue screen error after which it couldn't boot [i couldn't even get to BIOS).
I was out of the country, so my friend called the service staff who told him to try to run some tests, that time it worked, he got to BIOS, ran the tests, everything was fine and the laptop started up normally. Now, 2 weeks after, I'm getting blue screens continuously, and laptop won't boot. If it boots [and it usually happens when you hit it slightly, though, i don't know if it's a conincidence], windows 7 starts up normally and everything is working fine until the next blue screen shows up, which disables my laptop all over again.

Blue screen looks like this:

BAD_POOL_CALLER

Technical information:

STOP: 0x0000000C2 (0x00000099, 0xFE8F40DC, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
Collecting data for crash dump
Initializing disk for crash dump
Beginning dump of physical memory
Dumping physical memory to disk:100
Physical memory dump complete
Is it a software crash? Can I run Win 7 repair if I manage to boot it and how to do that? Is it my hard disk problem?
What to do? -.-
 

A:Blue screen BAD_POOL_CALLER; laptop won't boot, a new laptop dying?

If you can get it to work by tapping on the machine, then it doesn't sound like a software problem. It could be a bad system board or memory.

I would call HP again and see about getting service on the hardware.

Hi all, I searched through the forums already and there are a lot of similar questions to mine, but none of them answered my question.

I have an Ei System laptop running
Windows XP Home,
512MB DDRAM,
Pentium Celeron 2.6Gz,
Internal 40GB HDD, external 160GB HDD.

I only recently installed the external HDD. Prior to that, my laptop constantly chugged and had loads of problems so I decided to backup the HDD and reboot the system to factory settings. That worked perfectly well until I started installing all my old programs and hardware onto it again, and things started to get strange. After some of the programs and hardware were installed and the system rebooted, my laptop refused to even turn on. That never happened before. I had to take out the battery for a few minutes and replace it. This has stopped happening but problems are worse now.

The second I turn my laptop on, the hard drive LED stays (almost) permanently on. I know it's not a loose connection internally because the LED and HDD still functions normally, but it seems like the HDD is constantly being accessed I'm not sure, but on top of that, when I'm lucky enough to even get past the boot sequence (after an unusually long period of wait and restarts) the computer is unbelievably sluggish; programs freeze, the mouse freezes, it's as if I have driven the CPU to the limit, yet when I check Task Manager, the CPU's usage rarely goes past 30%. When it just can't cope, I'm given the... Read more

Hi, I have a 4 year old Acer aspire 5750 laptop. There have been a few times when it has strggled to boot up, then done a startup repair and eventually booted up and worked fine. Today that didn't work, then it ran chkdsk. Then it started to load w7 but my user profile couldn't be loaded. It managed to load a new user profile. It will only run a snail's pace. Inserted the Acer recovery disk but nothing happened.

Do you think it is worth trying to get it repaired? Or do you think it is on its way out and should be replaced asap?
Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.
I have backed everything up.

A:Laptop dying?

I'd def say fix it. But I know what I'm doing when it comes to fixing them. (No offense)

It might be more time than you're wanting to put into it, but I would say do a reformat and reinstall a fresh copy of windows and it should make it work better.

What does the recovery disk(s) you have say on it (them)?

I was at my Dad's house where I have faster internet than where I currently live so naturally I do all my large downloads there and then send them to my laptop via flash drive then to my main PC back home, again, via flash drive. This weekend though I was transferring files from my Dad's PC to my laptop when we were in a rush to get going back home so I transferred the rest of the files that I downloaded to my flash drive and decided that I should do the rest of the transfer from the stick to the laptop in the car to get going as soon as we could. I put the laptop into sleep mode after it was done (and I probably shouldn't have done this in hindsight) put it on the backseat upside down, while still in sleep mode. I have done this before my laptop pretty much stays in sleep mode for it's entire life, I do this while travelling too. But here is where the problems start.

My laptop (Dell Inspiron 8600) has, as of the past few weeks, begun to act rather strangely. After having the machine on for ~1 hour, the fan begins to blow very loudly while performance near flatlines. Before this happens, the computer can run new-age games on mildly low graphics, while after, even small tasks such as typing notepad are extremely choppy and next to impossible to accomplish.

A few notes:
I'm running Windows XP5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 2 with 512mb RAM.
Along with this, initially, I was having a blue screen issue, but after reseating the mem module that was fixed
I've tried everything, defragging weekly, virus cleaning, spyware cleaning, all of the things I'd usually do to tidy up the computer, but none have had any effect.

I've reloaded Windows (7, Ultimate, 32-bit) on my Gateway NV73 laptop at least 6 times over the past 2 years that I have owned the laptop because the blasted thing keeps dying. I have had MSFT Security Essentials, SuperAntiSpyWare, MalWareBytes and, now, BitDefender installed at various times.

As of my last "clean" reload of Win7 (two weeks ago) I also installed Secunia PSI and Ninite to make sure every piece of software had the latest patch.

And yet, again, my laptop is beginning to run slow as molasses, to not fully boot up (gets stuck on the "Windows 7 Ultimate" screen without proceeding to the "enter your password" screen), and now I see - thanks to Paragon's Backup & Recovery 2011 - that I have a hidden drive with 12GB of who-knows-what on it. It is labeled as PQSERVICE and says "12 GB NTFS". I Googled PQSERVICE and got a preliminary understanding of what it might be, but I couldn't find any reference that could explain why it's so friggin huge.

I also have an "E:" drive that is labeled: "SYSTEM RESERVED (E:) 101.9 MB NTFS".

I realize this whole post is vague, but I honestly don't know what details could be relevent or helpful.

Help?

A:Win7 Ult 32-bit Laptop Keeps Dying

Hello FreeThinkerTX and Welcome to TSF,

System reserved disk: Keeps data of your boot record. In other words, keeps track of where your Operating system is, so that Windows can boot it.

PQSERVICE: Contains system restore data. If your computer fails in any way, you can use the manufacturer reset to restore the system to the system default (the state it was in when you first bought it)

There can be alot of reasons as to why Windows is not booting. Even though it comes back after reinstallations, it could still be something you've installed that messed it up. So if it happens again;
Can you boot into safemode? (Press F8 during startup)

Also it might be a good idea to run a memory test and harddrive test. Memory test can be found here along with instructions. As for a harddrive test, what harddrive are you using? Your PC spec's doesn't list manufacturer, and their website doesn't list what drives they use.

Hi,
I am a university student with very limited funds and I believe my 3 year old, Acer Aspire 3620 laptop is on it's way out. I am hoping for some suggestions on what to do with it, or if I should just invest in a new one

Here are my problems:
1) It used to happen once or twice a year, but for about a month now, my laptop will make a loud beep, but no error messages or change in functioning.
I heard from a friend that this means I need a new hard drive?
2) Sometimes my computer will shut down with a blue screen, telling me there's a 'memory parity error' in system 'fat 32'?
3) About 60% of the time when I shut it off, a message will pop up just before the screen goes black (so i dont have time to write it down) something like "fatal exception has occurred"
4) The fan is really noisy and warm, which I think means it needs to be cleaned, but not being familiar with computers, I am hesitant to do so. Any tips?

I have been running a disk defragmenter, which stops the beep, but only during that time. Now it says I don't have to run it anymore, and the beeping persists.
I'm not sure what to do, and I'm worried that all my files and work will disappear if it dies suddenly. I don't have an external HD because I'm not sure to invest in one.
Please help!!
Thank you in advance
 

A:Dying, noisy laptop?!

If you have a CD/DVD burner start saving your files. It may well be just your HD but if you don't have a backup on your files, and it dies, you're really in trouble. It sure wouldn't hurt to clean the system up, and I mean physically. Get a can of air if nothing else and blow the dust out of the fan.
Generally after a three years laptops are notorious for failures of some sort. As to whether you should purchase a new one or not - that's up to you and the budget.
So try cleaning your system out - as best you can, save your files on a Disk, and go here and download, http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html?Str=download
and run it. Your system will eventually let you know what's up. Have you gone into Device Manager to make sure all is well? Jazz

Okay, so my sister bought an Acer Aspire 4330 almost a year ago.

Lately, it's been... weird? It is overtly slow, crashes a lot, get's BSODs, and generally just sucks.

Is there anyway to fix it back to normal? I'm a computer geek but this.. This i've never dealt with. Malwarebytes, Nod32 online, Bitdefender Online, AVG, Avira, and Avast pick up nothing (No, those all aren't running at once. I tried them randomly. Currently, she has Avira) Windows Vista Basic.

What can I do?

My other sister has a Gateway laptop, and it's like the left button on her touchpad is either broken or jammed. Her right button works. So I had her set her touchpad to left-handed mode (Right click is normal click so on) and when she boots, it automatically opens a context menu as if she clicked the context button. Anything I can do about that? Windows Vista Home Premium.

For about a week now, my laptop has been unable to boot into Windows 7. My attempts to repair and reinstall Windows weren't a success either. Problems began when I turned the laptop on one afternoon and went into my bedroom for a while. About 30 minutes later, I came out, and the laptop hadn't even finished booting yet - Windows was still on the same "Starting Windows" screen. This definitely wasn't normal, since my laptop never look longer than two minutes to boot up.

So I let it sit for a few more minutes, and then decided to hold the power button down for a force shut down. I try to boot up the laptop again, and the "Starting Windows" screen didn't even show up. Instead, text appeared at the top left of the screen ("Disk read error - press ctrl-alt-del to restart"). So I put the Windows 7 installation CD into the CD drive, and rebooted to attempt a system repair.

Even with the CD, Windows was slow with booting and loading. It took about an hour to reach the installation window, and I couldn't even get into system repair.
So yeah, any process I do related to repairing Windows is VERY slow.

The next thing I did was install Linux Mint on one of my USB drives. I booted that up and it worked absolutely fine. I also managed to get into the C:/ drive and salvage an updated copy of all valuable the data I needed. After backing up, I tried reinstalling Windows completely, and it didn't succeed again.

When I first registered here, it was to thank you for your rogueware removal tutorials that (indirectly) got XP Antispiware off my computer. Now, I think my mother's Vista Home Premium? laptop is going to eat it soon.

-Yesterday it started going really slow, and actually froze, neccesitating a restart of Explorer, while trying to do something that's usually pretty innocuous as far as resource requirements go. She had a lot of things open, but she usually does. Task manager said CPU usage was hovering around 45-75% at that point.

-Last night it gave her a STOP error (BSOD) that disappeared before she could tell me what it said.

-Also last night, she ran MBAM in safe mode and it came up completely clean.

-When it rebooted, it ran a check-disk and said it was fixing corrupted files. But when it got to the end and made the report, it listed 0 of the first thing, 0 of the second thing, and 4 of the third thing (she doesn't remember what they were).

I bought this IBM ThinkPad T21 off this guy who lives near me for a couple hundred bucks. I may of possibly gotten ripped off for it, but at the time I sort of needed it so I didn't mind paying it.

Anyway, I know the laptop is pretty old. But recently it has been doing something slightly strange. Whenever I boot up Win XP with it, the boot screens loading bar will pause for a minute, then kick back in, do another pause, then load right up. I don't have a total problem with it, but I worry that this could be a sign for something serious. The specs of the system are:

Intel Pentium 3 796MHz
256MB Ram
30gig HD
Windows XP SP2
S3 Graphics Inc. SavageIX

Also I know the system isn't exactly built to run XP, but I did cut down alot of it's graphics to boost performance.

My laptop screen was just fine when I shut it down and when I powered it up the next day there were black lines running across a top section of the screen. My laptop wasn't dropped or near anything magnetized so I'm not sure what caused it. Is there anyway to fix the display? There are never updates for my drivers when I check (I have an ASUS notebook). I assume the drivers have nothing to do with the problem. I also don't have a spare monitor to hook up to my laptop. I could take it to the Geek Squad at Best Buy but I have no warranty and don't trust them anyway. Is there any other way to fix this or do I have to live with it?

Note: The vertical lines don't show up in screen shots. Most lines are black, others are light turquiose. I tried bending the corners of the screen as suggested on other technical websites. Doesn't make any difference in the appearance.

I managed to get a cmd prompt running and deleted the files which allowed my computer to work enough that I could get online and post this info, etc. It has also blue-screened quite a few times.

Hi guys,

I have a HP TC4400 Tablet laptop that is dying because of (I think) viruses.

I first noticed a problem with google searches being hijacked and redirected to other sites, usually search sites or sketchy looking shopping sites. I read up on this online and found that the problem seems to be fairly common. Anyways, I tried running AVG, Symantec, MalwareBytes, Spybot SD, and none of them could find the hijack virus on my computer (though they found plenty of other stuff). I then tried out StopZilla, and it at least detected the hijacker, so I bought StopZilla and ran it (they make you buy the full version to remove threats- the freeware just detects threats) and StopZilla froze at 97% of threats removed. I don't know why or how. Anyways, my google searches are still being hijacked. Also, I often get messages from Symantec saying that it has found a trojan. The message goes "Action taken: Clean Succeeded, Access allowed."

Furthermore, my computer is now slowing to a crawl. It takes literally 10-15 minutes to boot up, it is constantly indexing, and programs crash all the time (especially Word, Adobe Reader, and Mozilla/IE). Also, every time I boot up I get a message or two like this:

Hi. Not too long ago I posted about my laptop screen and how it was dying. If you didn't read it, I'll explain it again.

A long time ago, a strip of pixels on my laptop screen half died. There was colour in them, but the colour was lighter than what should have been displayed. I left it and thought not much of it. A week or two later, around 15% of the total screen "died". It stopped showing what it was meant to be showing, and instead it either displayed just a big black bunch of pixels, or strands of colourful pixels. I was annoyed at this. A few days later another 15% of the screen died on me. Right next to the other lot that died (all on the left side of the screen). It did the same - stayed black, however it occasionally flickered on startup, then died again. Yesterday another bunch of pixels went, making half the screen 'damaged'.

Now, the first part that went always shows coloured lines from the top of the screen to the bottom. The colours and amount change. The second part was half wanting to work yesterday. It was showing distorted parts of my desktop and if I moved a window it would also move on the distorted part. The third part just flickers from grey to black constantly.

I plugged my dads computer screen into my laptop and I can view the desktop perfectly without implications on it, so it's not the motherboard or some video card thing (not the best at computers here). I concluded that the (laptop) screen itself isn't dod... Read more

Hi, first post here so sorry to get straigh into a problem.

I have an Acer Aspire 5536laptop that I've had for about 8 months. All was ggood to start with, running Windows Vista. When I bought the laptop though it came with a free upgrade to Win 7 when it got releases. So when the disc turned up I upgraded. Again all seemed fine, although it didn't seem to improve the overall speed which I thought 7 might a bit.

At around Christmas my Wife installed an update for Simms 3, which didn't seem to install properly and crashed the game. We uninstalled it and thought everything was ok. However, I'm pretty sure that since that point thins have been getting slower and slower. Particularly when first logging in, it takes an age for the first programme to launch.

Also Internet browsing seems to be getting very slow, particularly after a little while of use. And also the wife has completely uninstalled Simms 3 as it became unplayable it was so slow.

I have Norton 360 which isn't identifying any virus issues. I have also tried system restore several times but it will not work. I get an error saying system restore was unable to complete, blaming the anti virus, but it still doesn't work even when I completely disable Norton.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions on where to start in trying to work out what is wrong.

Many thanks.

A:Need to replace dying hard drive in laptop.

You could try a clone. Or you could try an imaging procedure.

Either can work or fail.

I'd say the best tool for the job is Macrium Reflect Free Edition. It will clone or image. It's free.

Windows 7 has a built-in imaging capability, but it can be confusing if you are unfamiliar with it.

With Macrium Reflect, the general procedure would be:

Install Macrium.

Use it to make an image file. Save the image file on the external disc.

Make a "recovery" CD with Macrium.

Install your new hard drive.

Boot from the recovery CD and navigate to the image file you made.

"Restore" that image file to the new hard drive.

That's the basic procedure, but it's not foolproof. Neither is cloning.

Are you ready, willing, and able to reinstall Windows and all of your applications if cloning and imaging fail?

Have you backed up your personal data, bookmarks, and email to the external hard drive? That would probably be my first concern as the old hard drive may expire in 2 minutes for all we know.

Can you give the exact message you are getting about a bad hard drive? What is giving you this message?

Hey everyone, I am facing some problems with my Lenovo Thinkpad T410. The screen acted as seen in the attached photo. I disassembled the laptop following the service manual, took out the LCD screen out of the cover, connected the screen again and it was acting the same, but system etc. started normally. I ordered a new screen on eBay and put aside the disassembled laptop waiting for the part to arrive. When it arrived, I connected the old screen just to check if the computer itself is still fine and there's where problems have begun. When I start the laptop, the cooling fan runs for a few seconds, then stops for 10s and starts to run again at high rpm. The screen doesn't work. The same is for the new screen. External screen connected via VGA doesn't find the signal.What's wrong, what to do?

Friend then found the recovery CD so placed that in and ran the recovery

Also when I try to do a disk cleanup it hangs up at the compress old files part and does not move past that and then usually shuts down. I ran a full McAfee scan yesterday and nothing was found.

I have a bit of a stupid question for you all, mum's laptop (a ~4 year old HP Pavilion DV6614TX) is on the fritz; when watching stock market videos or playing graphic-intensive games (like DX-ball) the computer freezes, graphics get pixely & it eventually crashes. It's BSODd [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]o[/SIZE]nce[/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE], but by the time I got there to see it close up to read the error code it restarted, most of the time it just outright crashes sans-BSOD. It's also tiling the display occasionally when these lock-ups occur, or on start-up after a lock-up, it basically repeats the display 6 times tiled on the monitor.... i don't really know how to describe that succinctly, so I hope it makes sense to you.

SO I'm thinking it could be one of 3 things, RAM, Graphics card / graphics card memory, or just plain ol' overheating.

I've pulled the laptop apart & took to its fan with the hand vac for lack of an air compressor, but it's still starting up with the display tiled[SIZE=-1].. in fact, I can't seem to get [SIZE=-1]it [SIZE=-1]to start up w[SIZE=-1]ithout [SIZE=-1]the disp[SIZE=-1]l[SIZE=-1]ay tiled at all now.

Hi all,

I bought a laptop last year that came with Vista Home Premium 32 bit...I am not at all computer savvy, but bought some recording software called Audiogram that is supposed to be the equivalent of Garage Band that comes on a Mac.

However, I have never been able to make the recording program work! It acknowledges there could be some problems with Vista, but ultimately it should work.

The latest message I get when I open the recording software is "The currently installed soundcard driver does not support Direct Sound Input. Recording audio is not possible."

What do I do? I can't return the recording software because I registered it, plus it's been months that I've been reading/downloading updates thinking I could get it to work.

I've been told by several people that vista has soundcard problems.

Any suggestions? Remember, I am NOT computer-savvy so keep it simple if you can. Thanks.

Alright guys, my problem is simple: I can't record any audio coming from my laptop whether it be a song playing in iTunes or streaming from a website. I've tried using Cool Edit, Audacity, Kristal and some MP3/WMA Recording program and whenever I press the Record button in these programs I just hear a fuzzing noise and nothing records.

I've got a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop and it uses SigmaTel audio device. The device is slightly out of date (my current one is like 5.10.4999 and the new one is 5.10.5005 or something I can't remember exactly) but anyway when I downloaded the new driver to try and update it, I got an error message saying "Device Object Not Present" then it said to restart system and try setup again or something. I googled this error but nothing really helped.

So I figured I'd try rolling back the driver to see if anything happened but Windows said there were no previous drivers or models to roll back to - screwed there as well!

I've read help guides for Audacity that say to record audio from the computer you just have to select "Wave Out" or "Stereo Mix" from the Mixer Toolbar, but my only options in the Toolbar are "Line In" and "Microphone". The funny thing is, my sound works perfectly well, I can hear everything that I play and I even ran a Diagnostics check (F12 from boot) to check the audio and I heard everything that it tested.

A:Cannot record audio from laptop - no matter what!!!

Sigmatel audio cards have weird problems getting recorders to work on them. The reliable solution I have found is a piece of freeware called Freecorder. It installs a browser toolbar which has record and stop buttons. Just play whatever you want and press record, then when you are done, press stop. Freecorder will record all sounds coming out of the speaker of your computer and will split it up into multiple pieces based on pauses in the sound (so if you are streaming multiple songs from a site, you will get the songs individually broken up instead of one massive MP3).

Hey, first, let me thank you for being here. I love being an independent artist and enjoy the challenge of doing a lot on my own, but I appreciate the time to reach out for help and this is definitely one of those times!

I'm supposed to be able to record right into my laptop, HP DV8130US. I've tried two different mikes - the one I'm using now is a SHURE Beta 58, and am using a Mackie micro series 1202 8 track mixer to go into the laptop. I was using a cord with an adapter to go from mixer to laptop, but Friday purchased one with an 1/8 inch on one end and a 1/4 inch on the other so I wouldn't have to deal with funky things that can happen with adapters.

I use Audacity as the recording software. I also have Soundforge XP that I tried earlier.

The bottom line is no matter what I do, I can't record a clean sound. There's static, loud crackling noise, and a high hum at times.

Yesterday I went out and purchased the external Sound Blaster Live 24-bit. The high hum isn't there but everything else still is, albeit slightly lower in volume.

There really isn't that much difference between going through the external card or my laptop card though...not enough to justify the purchase of the external card.

A:Solved: Trying to record into laptop with microphone

audio recording chain has lots of potential for problems
"static, loud crackling noise" sounds like you have a level mismatch and are overdriving the sound card and "a high hum at times" is most likely a 60 cycle ground loop (very common when trying to interface "professional" gear to "consumer" level gear and to computers in general). Most computer soundcards, even supposed "high end" cards are made predominantly for hooking up multimedia speakers and gaming, not actually pro audio recording.
also, dirvers could be an issue with your software-to-hardware communication

there are fixes for these many issues, but best bet if possible, is trade the mackie mixer for or buy a "pro" audio interface, designed specifically for recording. there are many good USB models that can be ...bus powered from your laptop, are very portable and have decent mic preamps, zero latency monitoring, headphone amps, etc as well as "pro" drivers options that are designed and tested for your application.

some excellent products are made by M-Audio. I use these myself with great results

RAM 8 GB. 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor. GeForce 745m graphics card. 1 TB Hard Drive. Windows 8 and currently using Open Broadcast Software to record my PC gameplay. And I have only tried to record the new game Stranded Deep. So I have been having problems with Lag in all my gameplay unless I turn down my quality to toaster mode. Are these specs good enough to actually record smooth good quality gameplay out of? Or do I need to upgrade my equipment? Let me know if you guys need any other information. Thank you guys for any help! You guys are always helpful!

Where are you getting the games from that you are recording? ie: Amazon, game manufacturer's websit etc.

I want to use the GoToRecord command to go to a specific record in a form. The problem is this uses an offset or record number. How can i find the record number of a specific record?

What i plan to do is use some code similar to this:

docmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "FrmComputer", acGoTo, expression

where the expression is the record number of the record 'Computer01' for example.

Hi:

I've created a form in Access-2013 and placed record navigation buttons (using the button wizard) in the footer to allow the user to scroll through the records. They are the usual buttons and function as you would expect:

<< | < | > | >>[/FONT]

Problem is that when a user is on the last record in the table and clicks the ''right" button (in red above), the form displays a blank record. This is normal behavior for Access (as far as I know) and as long as a user enters NO DATA in ANY field, Access does not write the record to the table.

Given that users may be less than astute , I would like to eliminate the possibility of them creating a "blank" record in the table.

Is there anyway to stop this default behavior in Access?

Thanks
RonK
