Preferred Solution: a malfunction ???

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 recently purchased an HP ProBook 450 G3. I am using two passport compact 1 TB drives with my laptop's two USB 3.0 ports. In normal use there is no problem. However, when I copy a lot of data from one to the other (or from one to the laptop's internal drive) the drives keep disconnecting. I know this because first I will get a copying error saying either the source or the destination is missing. Then I will hear the "chime" that Windows makes when a USB device connects or disconnects. Then the autoplay window for the Passport drive will appear. It seems that it spontaneously disconnects and then reconnects. I can continue using it for a time afterward, but it always spontaneously disconnects at some point, always when I am doing large data transfers.

I wondered if I have a poor physical connection---the USB plugs seem a bit loose. I checked if there is any vibration or movement that could break the connection, but so far there is no evidence that anything is moving. The disconnection always happens when a lot of data is being transferred, while the drives are sitting completely still.

Any ideas how to debug this?

A:Hard drive malfunction? USB port malfunction? Or just normal?

This is a hard situation to diagnose from a distance IMO. "Loose" is somewhat subjective, and barring serious abuse the only kinds of usb connectors & ports I've ever seen fail mechanically are mini and micro USB2 types.

I'd be inclined to suspect the drives first, especially if they are from the same family and were produced around the same time (the "bad batch" phenomenon). Have you tried to reproduce the problem on other machines, or with different drives on your machine?

I have a laptop with a F1 key Malfunction, when Windows XP loads and my desktop appears it then loads help and support continuously, finally locking up the system.
My question is how can i stop F1 from running help, is there some windows service that i can turn off permanently? So that the F1 key means nothing? Replacing the keyboard is not an option for me at this time!

You can disable the Help and Support service from the Services management console (Start > Run > services.msc), or from a cmd prompt: sc stop helpsvc, then sc config helpsvc start= disabled.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with XP Home Edition on it. All of my drives and devices connect externally and I access them through 3 different USB ports. A week ago I began having problems with my USB ports.

When I turn on my laptop, the devices (a mouse, keyboard and printer) initially are recognized and run well. Then I hear the noise from the comp as if I unplugged a device and my mouse, keyboard and printer are all no longer recognized by the comp. Sometimes I hear the noise as if I plugged them back in, sometimes I don't hear that noise but get an error message saying that my devices are not working properly and need to be replaced. All of my devices are in reality functioning properly. There does not seem to be consistency in when the USB ports stop functioning. During this time I am not touching the connections and at times am not even actively using the comp.

Do I have a trojan virus? or are my USB ports beginning to simply malfunction?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I can't do much with a laptop that cannot save a file to a disk or print a file. I have ad ware and spy ware removal tools (ad aware, spybot search and destroy, spyguard) as well as an updated firewall and antivirus (zone alarm suite) running on the comp. No major risks or problems have been found by these programs.
Thanks!

Then restart your computer and windows should detect your usb and reinstall the drivers.

DEP processing is flaky. Setting /noexecute=OptOut and adding HP digital monitor to the exceptions list does not cause DEP enable for all processes.

No 'restart needed' popup is displayed....
?? CHROME, AVAST, FIREFOX all show DEP (permanent). All others DISABLED.....
?? setting /noexecute=AlwaysOn works, all processes DEP'd, BUT disallows HP digital monitor (can print, cannot scan or retrieve printer info).
I do have Administrator privileges but thought I noticed a popup (IIRC) re two items (processes?) not functioning, CIMV2? perhaps and one other. WBEMTEST checked for DEP 3 (OptOut), verified it was set (I forget the Superclass now, under root/cimv2).
Is this a Startup issue of some kind? Something not loading? GPEDIT under XP not helpful unless DISabling access to various options.

Hi jdendrin,

First and foremost, please post your computer specs. Posting computer specs definitely helps us troubleshoot computer issues more efficiently. What is the brand/model of your laptop? Do you have warranty on your laptop? It's possible that the fan inside your laptop is dying.

Hello everyone, first time poster, so sorry if I mess up ^^

Anyways, I just got a new laptop, specifically a Lenovo 80XS0086IX Ideapad 320-15ABR. Initially it all seemed fine, but as I used it I noticed several problems: 1) it cannot remain in sleep mode for long. After a while, it just switches off abruptly. I have tried several combinations of lid closed/open, power cord in/out, but eventually the result is always the same. 2) When powering it on after these shutdowns, the trackpad does not recognize multiple-fingers gestures, requiring a restart. 3) The disk usage frequently goes up to 100% despite no ongoing activity. 4) Sometimes, pressing the power button to power it on results in the disk starting, then abruptly stopping, then restarting again several times, before the laptop finally starts. 5) The system sometimes freezes for several seconds, even the cursor stops, only to resume any input movement later.

I have tried everything in my knowledge: I updated the BIOS, the HDD firmware, installed all Windows updates, fresh-installed Windows, but nothing seems to work (although the HDD thing apparently solved the "always 100%" problem). I ran both Windows in-built check-disk and third party programs to check for errors on the HDD, but none showed up. I'd be really glad if it was something I can fix at home, since I really need this machine to study, so sending it to be repaired/replaced back at Amazon is my very last option due to time.

Hello all,

Well, to get right into it, my PSU conked out. I shut down my computer (Start > Turn Off Computer . . .), it didn't automatically turn off like it normally does. So, I tried the power switch, nothing happened. Finally, I flipped the switch on the PSU. Obviously, it was off now.
The next day, I went to turn it on, and it didn't. I tested the power switch, it was fine, so the next thing to check was the PSU. Took it to a computer service store, they tested it, it was dead. I sent it back to the company, they sent me a brand new one. And that brings us to today.

I installed the PSU in my computer, hooked it up to everything (mb, harddrive, video card, CD-Rom, fans). I pushed the power button, the PSU lit up (it has a lighted fan on it) and the fan went on, this lasted about a second, then it shut off. Well, then I went through step-by-step:
- Connected only the motherboard to the PSU - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard and the larger fan - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, and the harddrive - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, and video card - turned on, stayed on, did not beep. (apparently it was beeping because there was no video output.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, video card, and plugged everything into the back of the computer - turned on, stayed on.
- Connected everything listed above, plus the smaller fan, turned an... Read more

A:PSU Malfunction

Although there are things like power surges and lightning strikes that could kill a PSU, there is really no reason to try to come up with a scenario for what happened. Often they just die and it can be without warning. I think you are saying that now everything works. If the new PSU suddenly quits then you may have a problem that needs to be figured out.

The fan set up looks pretty standard.

Hi,I've spent several days trying to figure out why my computer is running slow and has intermittent freezing. I've followed many helps for dealing with Slow Windows XP and did a lot of housekeeping/suggested maintenance. Also found out that the reason my computer all of a sudden was noisy was that the fans were full of dust. Cleaned out the computer and followed all suggestions; quieter now but still having problem. I keep getting a disk/CD symbol next to my mouse pointer and the PitStop utility said my CPU is running at 100%. I've dumped all kinds of programs at startup and running in the background. I ran a QuickScan of SuperAntiSpyware and found 100 + Tracking cookies and a couple trojans which got deleted/quarantined. I don't think Norton picked up anything when it scanned last Friday. I have tried to boot in Safe Mode to do full scans, but won't let me. I get a screen full of multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2) lines and then nothing else. Also, twice I got a Secondary drive 0 not found message. Kaspersky Webscan froze when I tried to run it.

A:Infection Or Malfunction?

Update: I checked my scan logs from Norton and the only thing weird I noticed was several modifications made by some mystery processes to Windows Startup on the 12th. These occurred from 2:11:12 to 2:14:23 pm and were made by the following programs: msopimstmp.exe, oeabpstmp.exe, msw2kpimstmp.exe, msoabpstmp.exe, hrmystmp.exe. I'm assuming some of these are microsoft, but I don't know what they are, so thought I'd mention them. The night before, Norton did pick up and remove a tracking cookie, but that was it.

Well, before few days I see that when I'm surfing on internet that some web pages ˝can not be displayed˝ or return to my home web page, cannot enter ˝Spybot search & destroy˝ home page and microsoft update page and some others security web pages. Before all that one day I instaled IE8 (and maybe something more) but I remove it, now I can't download IE6 or IE7 or IE8 because when I click on DOWNLOAD - that wbe page cannot be displayed (allways some kind of error 404, etc, etc). I completly check web settings (and there is lot of them, lower security levels in settings, added trusted sites, but still nothing) maybe activex control error? When I go to news web pages, facebook, nudity, and some others - all ok! But security of my PC is something what bothers me....
I have AVAST but when did not found virus I remowe it and instal windows one care (fortunatly)... I have few more spyware remove programs but they found few threats before few days and nothing, again same web situation... Malwarebytes found 2 threats in registry but all is situation stay like before....
Maybe Ccleaner program erase something from Windows data?
Still don't know: do I have virus/trojan/spyware... or windows error???

When I start my computer, I have to restart it to get my A drive to work. If I don't do that, the drive doesn't show up in Control Panel and Hardware lists it as "Device Cannot Start". I've uninstalled & installed it, and nothing works. I have XP Pro. I usually, as the computer is booting up, press "delete" to get into BIOS then immediately push F10 to restart, so it will come on.
HELP, please!

Hi,

Flip the ribbon cable over making sure the red stripe heads toward the power cord or as you face the case, the red stripe is away from you.

I'm getting the errror messages pictured in the screen shots below (also incliding shot of Windows Version). The e-mail sticks on "Authorizing". I am able to log on to comcast.net and get my mail that way but cannot receive on my regular e-mail. I'm using Windows Mail on Vista 32 bit. Any suggestions?

A:E-mail Malfunction

Hello Fred44,
I had issues with my comcast e-mail and had to initiate live chat and have them fix me up. They gave me the settings to put in to get mine working.
So, i am thinking this would be easiest way to resolve your issue.

I'm trying to set up a wireless network but I get a message that the flash disk is write protected. How do I remove the write protect? Also, the disk no longer shows up in 'My Computer' as 'Flash Disk' but as SOFTWARE'. Is the disk knackered?

I need really urgent help! If you can help me your a lifesaver!

Well my problem:

Whenever I connect a USB into my laptop i receive a "USB Device Not Recognized" Message.

the notice says that the device has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it.

Then it turns into an unknown device.

I have searched all over the net for a fix to this but I cannot get a working one.

I have also tried the USB on other computers and it works perfectly fine, it's a problem with my laptop.

I have tried my pendrive, ipod and mobile phone and all three do not work.

Thankyou.

Hello. I just replaced a power supply on a Windows XP computer and when it boots up, the os loads just fine, the startup programs begin to load and during this the display settings automatically change from 800x600 32-bit color to 640x480 8-bit color. It has a GeForce 440 MX card and all the drivers and such are working fine. I've tried everything fix it, but am having a less than fun time. Any suggestions would be great.
 

A:Display Malfunction

is the power supply big and good enough
in the device manager uninstall the card
reboot tapping f8
from the options choose vga mode
when windows finishes booting
disable a/virus
install the drivers
reboot the computer
if the problem is still there i would suspect the supply is not supplying enough power

A:Printer malfunction

I would assume that documents are being sent to the printer while it is off and being queued by the print spooler. What make and model is the printer and does it have an auto on setting?
