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.

Hello! I?m going to keep this thread pretty quick, my computer started acting very strangely, turning on/off rapidly, and through a little internet searching, found that the quick fix was to reset the CMOS on my PC. After doing so, my computer finally turned on, but now doesn?t display, or give power to my RGB keyboard and mouse, although the RGB in the system works. I can?t get into the BIOS or anything, as it seems that the keyboard and mouse aren?t getting power, and the obvious display issue. However, the Bluetooth light on mhm Bluetooth adapter (also USB) does have a light on, so power is going to the USB ports. So, I?m thoroughly confused, and I?m wondering if anyone has a fix unknown to me as of yet, before I ship it out to somewhere for the next 3-4 months for repair (a horrible experience). Thanks!

OS:Windows 10
I?ll put out more info from the PC if needed.

Randomly doesnt detect HDD during start-up
Hey all new here, sort of totally baffled by this CONSTANT problem of mine.. Have had this pc for about 2 years and had problems with everything in it. basically. First off had to get my ram replaced after one of the twin sticks were faulty, had to replace my HDD after segments were corrupted, and CNET who fixed my pc broke my DVD burner. Lol.. But thats just me complaining, my problem lies with, I think. My Motherboard or. bios???

Problem: Sometimes during start-up it doesnt detect any HDD in my pc, just trys to run from my dvd drive then it cant so runs the Nvida boot agent. I have tried all the simple things of replace cables, changing boot order, repairing my MB drives with its CD, did a repair install of windows ect.. I even got a NEW HDD and new power supply (750watt true power) recently as I said before and it didnt help. I have basically replaced EVERYTHING in my pc except my Motherboard which is a GA-K8n SLI Pro. Oh this has been happing on and of since I got it.. yes I should have just returned it.. but im an optimist! I refuse to believe everything I had in my PC was faulty so I am seeking help for an obvious fix of some sort. Odd thing is, its working now. Started up fine, it does that time to time. Works anywhere from a few days to a few months.. Then u get a few days were it goes stupid and doesnt know i have a HDD.

I got CNet to install my HDD when I got a new one, so im guessing all that is in... Read more

Hi. I have four HP Envy notebook computers that I use regularly at work. Suddenly, starting up one day, all four computers stopped connecting to our wireless network. I tried at a different wireless network and neither of the computers still cant connect. I even tried a third and still no result. All of my other computers that runs Windows 10 (2 Acer, 1 Asus, 8 iMac) are still able to connect to all of the wireless networks. I even run Windows 10 on all 8 iMacs and they can still connect to all of the networks. And there hasnt been any chances to the wireless network. Strange thing is when I bring the computers to my home they can find my wireless network at home, all four of them with no problem. Ive tried all Windows repair and HP assistant and none of it works. Ive updated to the latest drivers and all I can think of. What can have happened. Ive noticed it has been a Windows update, but if that update have affected the network drivers,  how can it the work at home. I can also add that all four laptops work if I use Ethernet. Hope someone can help out. //Richard

Hi all,
I purchased a used IBM T41 laptop with WinXP and everything was working fine: cable and wireless internet, Dvd reader , wireless signal (like antenna) was flashing at the bottom of the screen, .
I had some problem and reinstalled OS: deleted partition and formatted into NTFS, install fresh WinXP.
I didnt get any error during installation, but some problem came after: internet, wireless connection, USB drivers, DVD reader and many other.
I couldnt find network adapter name in the Device manager.
To fix this problem I download drivers from IBM site and try one by one to install it.
Finally my internet start to work and I do not have any yellow question mark in Device Manger, but wireless internet and dvd writer do not work.
Network Adapter( in the Device Manader) and Network Connection display only cable internet device and do not have Wireless device type. Also, I have Wireless Link and Wireless Network icons on the Control panel.
Why wireless doesnt work? How can I fix it?
Is this possible that my laptop did not have wireless card before?
Is this possible that card stopped to work after reformatting to NTFS?

Thank you

Yesterday i installed a PCI wifi card in my pc after which my sound completely stopped working, i have tried updating drivers, selecting the right speakers in the windows control panel and pretty much any other suggestion i found on other sites. My concern is that i might have damaged my motherboard while installing the PCI (I hit it with a screw driver when trying to remove my GPU to fit the PCI in), and that this is the cause of the problem. Do you have any other ideas on how i can fix my sound in windows or should i just assume i damaged the motherboard and buy a soundcard/ a new motherboard?
 

A:Solved: PC sound doesn´t work.

The test is to remove the wireless card, as of course beofre you installed this the sound worked
If it then still does not work and there are no warnings shown in device manager for the sound then I think you can presume that you have indeed damaged the motherboard.
That said, is the sound coming from the integrated sound chip or from the GPU

Hello!

I'm looking for some advice and guidance.
I am not a technical expert on computer hardware. I understand the basics and that's about the extent of it.

My current PC is a Dell desktop/tower; it runs Windows 7; it uses an Intel Core Duo processor. It is a few years old (I'd estimate 3 or 4 years old). I plug my PC into a Belkin surge protector/multi-outlet device, which plugs into the wall electrical outlet.

My problem is that recently the PC randomly has been instantly powering-down and then a few seconds later powering-up again and rebooting. This happens twice or 3 times a day, on average. I have no explanation for it. I do know that it's highly annoying and I'm concerned and want to do something to fix this problem before any permanent damage occurs to my PC.

Last week, I searched the internet briefly for advice, and the two possible causes that popped-up in search results were: A) overheating, or B) issues with the power cord. Given that, over the past week, in my spare time, I have totally rerouted all the cords and wires behind my computer desk, to ensure that no wires were tangling, pulling, or weighing-down on the power cord for my PC. I also totally dusted out the cabinet and backside of the PC tower, and gently vacuumed the "fan" area on the back of the PC, to ensure it was free of dust and lint. I removed some random objects from the PC cabinet (CD's, mice, keyboard, etc.) to ensure that there was plenty of "ai... Read more

I think you mean you have a PS/2 mouse. Try another mouse, and see if that cures the problem. If not remove the mouse from Device Manager and on re-boot let Windows re-detect it to see if that helps.

Exact same problem on Windows 10.
Tried all of six steps above, including buying three new cables in step 6 one of those was the specific cable recomended by HP support.
Make 9 calls to HP  and 4 calls to Microsoft. HP signed me up for their paid Freinds Support and I called them 5 times.
I tried the monitor on a surface Book, and Asus Desktop and a Dell Destop. Did not work on any of them. I have installed the latest drivers multiple times and update the firmware in my laptops, Surface Dock and Asus Desktop.
HP connected to my Surface Book several times and installed two different - third psrty partitioning programs. One didn't work the other did but it was a trial version and wanted more money than I felt it should cost.
 
I'm using it as a single monitor with no partitioning. It mostly works but has some strange events where the mouse clicks are off by several undred pixles. rebooting fixes that.
 
Now I have atiny little spider runing arround under the front glass. Very distracting. How did it even get in there? I would have thought the area between the glass and the disply would be sealed arround the edges.

Essentially, everything is wrong with my computer and I have no way to fix it. The first problem arose about a year ago. My laptop battery suddenly wouldn?t register any charge, and could only be used while plugged in. I thought that might be a battery issue, but, a few months later, I replaced the battery and still had the same issue. Next, I started getting the ?blue screen of doom,? the Kernel Data Inpage Error. My laptop began to consistantly stop working after a few hours of use: webpages would stop loading, files wouldn?t open after being clicked, and then the mouse and screen would become unresponsive. Most of the time, I turn the computer off, unplug it, and restart it to resume use. However, if I left the computer on, it would either give a black screen reading ?all boot options are tried,? or the blue Kernel Data Inpage Error screen (the Kernel Data Inpage Error is the rarer of the two). It would last longerer the less I used it and after repeated sessions of rebooting after freezing, it would only last a few minutes. It also took a while after startup before it could open programs or load websites, but besides this, it still functioned as a proper computer, so, while frustrated and constantly attempting to find a solution, I dealt with it. However, recently, it?s begun to have errors opening any program not factory installed with windows or Google Chrome (I have no idea why Chrome, other browsers won?t open). Originally, I received an error box that... Read more

OCZ MODX STREAM-PRO PSU (700W)
8gb Corsair Vengance at 9-9-24 and 1600Mhz

I was told this was most likely a problem with HDD or RAM.
So i have tried replacing my HDD with an old spare, but the pc would still turned off. So i am running HD Tune on my primary HDD to test for errors.
The health tab returns no errors though so i am assuming that this is all good.

I ran memtest 86+ overnight , but with both sticks installed, and it returned no errors (should i retry with one stick at a time?) .

The apparent next cause of such an issue would be the PSU, but after runnnig occt for 30-60 mins it gave voltages on all 3 rails well within 5%, the largest deviation was about 0.5% . Should i also check the bios volatges ?

My cpu reaches about 70 C at full load under OCCT's burn in tests, so i dont think that would be a problem.

It seems to occur more in some games than others, although it also has occurred while at idle.

Also sometimes the peripherals and screen freeze for up to 3 seconds and then become responsive again, they also make the usb insertion sound when they reconnect , so i am assuming that they are losing signal from the mobo.

This leads me to believe that the mobo is the problem, although i dont have a spare one to test with at the moment.

One last note, it can freeze/turn off up to 5 times a day, but then work fine for then next 3-4 days... It seems completely random

Sometimes it won't even stay on long enough for me to reach the bios, and other times it will go all the way into my windows vista and stay on for a while. The first time I boot it up it was on for a good 4 hours, then it shut off. Turned it back on and it stayed on for like 2 hours. Now I'm at a point where its turning off at random times.

A:PC turns off randomly

WE are using very similar parts in our rigs but your pc cutting out could be a list of things. Anything from bios setup, drivers for numerous things and even bad wiring or memory setup. Without knowing what you have done to this machine it's very hard to tell and this kind of problem is a process of elimination. Tell us what you have installed and anything you altered in bios. If you overclocking it, then it's no wonder but odds are it's your bios or memory, possibly a driver. Set the bios to defeault or reset the Cmos on the board to reset it, install this Nvidia driver here
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Restart following Nvidia instructions and see how it runs. Beyond that you may want to adjust your memory and try setting it a lower frequency. Many think higher speed ram is best but it's actually not, will read higher on Vista only because of latency. I run 667mhz ram unlinked and set to 533mhz in bios and then matches the cpu internal freq of 266mhz (q6600). You have double that. If you overclocking the ram is what will get you 1st, and god only knows what your timings are. Try the bios reset and make sure oyu have the correct Nvidia driver and then see how it's going.

EDIT: I just realized something very important and more regarding your memory you are using.. you can't install 1066mhz ram on a 750i! You can get it up to 1066 overclocked but you can only use 800mhz ram!! Scratch the rest of my advice, you need 667... Read more

I figured it was the power supply (that I have now replaced and the problem continues) causing the issues as the PC seems to just shut off instantly without warning. There are no blue screens or error messages when I turn the PC back on.

After looking at the event viewer this is what it tells me (see jpeg)

This is absolutely ruining my gaming experiences and if somebody could help me I'd be very grateful.

System Specs:

Processor
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz

Video Card
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti

Motherboard
Asus Maximus VII Hero

RAM
16 GB

Operating System

My PC randomly shuts down. This all started roughly two weeks ago, but it keeps getting worse and more frequent. When it shuts down I have to flip the switch in the back, wait a few seconds, then flip it again before restarting. The power button on the front does nothing.
(The PC is completely off when it shuts down. It's not running at all)
I pinpointed the problem down to 3 possibilities out of everything I found on google that could be causing this.

1. Drivers are not up to date (this is a very high possibility BUT I think something is wrong because the updates are endless. Every time I log on to my PC, I get a notification from AMD that there is a new update available. I spent about an hour the other day just updating and restarting my PC over and over. Whats up with that?)

2. Overheating seems to be a common issue especially since it is Summer. BUT I have turned my fans up manually to 100%, simply started Overwatch, and just sat there at the Main Menu. My PC turned off within 30 seconds. I would say that is the issue but I have had my PC turn off during a Youtube video or just browsing the internet..... Plus my PC can handle BF4 and Overwatch with ease so why would it be an issue now?

3. I might have a virus. Windows Defender has been known to not be the best ( I have experienced this first hand) so this could be a possibility but I dont know for sure obviously.

I joined this website for this issue because I really dont know exactly what I am doing.

A:PC Randomly Turns off

hmmm, does this problem happen when you've been using the computer for a long time? if so, it may be the proc overheating and shutting itself down. Try reseating the heatsink / reapplying thermal paste on the processor, hopefully that will help.

The title is pretty self-explanatory. Occasionally, my audio will randomly disable itself (as in, the volume doesn't change but the audio is muted). Additionally, whenever my audio turns off, any video or song (as in, youtube videos and songs from iTunes and Zune) slow down dramatically. So, I cannot "watch" text either, because the video is playing at around .25x speed. Whenever it does happen, it is normally after I unplug my headset, but it doesn't happen every time I unplug it. Finally, it is beginning to happen more randomly. I will be watching a video and as soon as I pause it, the audio disables. Any idea what's going on?

A:Audio Randomly Turns off

Yes. Software is causing it to bug out.

Best thing you can do is update the software and drivers to all that you use, to latest. Some software tends to control the whole Windows audio stack when you start it, like some Cyberlink software. It can mute or dictate Windows volume.

For good measure, also install latest bios.

Test the system without headset attached at all after, if necessary, to see if that is the main cause still.

I'm trying to help someone with their Pavilion 500-2014 desktop and have come up with some mysteries... Inital problem was that it would turn off then back on randomly.  Eventually it appears to have crashed a boot file and the typical Recovery method brought you right back to the UEFI screen.  So after making a clone of the drive to make sure I had all the user files I did a clean install from the Recovery disks. Initally the rebuild failed and message said to repeat the installation.  Finally got the OS (8.1) from the drives installed. Inital check shows all of the fans running and the machine is (reasonably) clean.  System diag checks all pass.  But the machine is still turning on and off. First mystery is that the system checks show the one 8GB DIMM in Slot 4....  Is slot 4 the primary slot for the 500-214???  I can't fnd any documentation. Second mystery is when doing a disk check I see that 90% of the 2TB drive is not allocated.  The install disks left a small partition at the begining of the drive unalocated.  Small partition for OS, gap, small partition for the BUILDPART and then a huge unalocated section.  What's up with this? And when I dig a little deeper I find here that the correct BIOS should be 80.22 from 3/4/16, but this machine shows 80.46 from back in 10/3/13.  Is there a typo someplace or did HP (or MSI) go backwards with their BIOS numbering? So anyone have any though...

Hey I've been having this problem for quite awhile now, everynow and again seemingly random my computer will turn of completely then startup again. At first I thought it was a powersupply issue, but after getting a new one I ruled that out. Then I thought it was due to power surgers so I got a surge protector to rule that out. So now I have no idea. The shutdowns do not happen when the computer is under alot of stress. Sometimes I can leave my computer on for days and it will never happen. Any ideas?

Hello,

I have a Maxtor OneTouch II 300gb external hard drive. It works fine sometimes, but there's times when it turns off/on quickly (I don't mean off/on, I mean it is recognized by the computer, then it isn't). Sometimes this cycles over and over (as the 'new device found' sound repeats) Sometimes it gives Delayed Write Failed error msgs too. It seems to shut off randomly though, even when I'm not active on any of the computers I've hooked it up to. Wondering if there's any way to fix this?

Thanks in advance-
Mike

Hi,

I am using an HP e-pc machine (which uses a small form factor motherboard) and recently it simply switches off with no warning what so ever. Seems to happen more often when running intense applications.

I'm unable to reboot it using the power switch, I have to manually unplug the cable, and plug it back in at the back to get it to turn on. It'll switch off in dos (in the bios menu) and in windows, no bsod or anything similar.

I thought it was a heat issue, however after ensuring the heatsink+fan were properly set, then leaving the case open and hainvg a second fan blow at it, it still turns itself off.

This is a pentium III machine, and unfortunately there are no temperature gauges in the bios, and I don't everest doesn't recognise any either. The power supply is an external one, similar to a laptop power supply design, using a 19v/3.16A.

I am not normally able to keep it running for over an hour.

Thanks in advance,

Louis.
 

A:Computer randomly turns off

Since you've determined its not a heating issue, it could be a power supply issue. Do you have another power supply you could test?

I have an Envy P106 laptop. It will randomly turn itself off. I replaced the battery yesterday and it happened again today. The laptop and battery are not hot at all. I usually have to wait about ten minutes or so before I can get it to turn back on. Suggestions?

When I'm watching videos, they work fine but usually, Javascript turns off, which means that I can't watch videos again. I basically have to end the internet process and open it up again or just open up Firefox.

This problem only occurs with Yahoo's IE Browser.

Yeah, can I turn on JAvascript by any chance?
 

A:Javascript turns off randomly (I think)

JavaScript has to be enabled in any browser. To see if it working in your browser(s) go to this test page with every browser you have (one at a time of course!);http://www.javatester.org/

Click on the 'JavaScript' box on the left hand side and, if JS is working, a box will open confirming that and identifying the browser and the version of JS it is using. The version of JS varies with each browser, IE uses 1.3, Firefox 1.7 and Opera (my default browser) 2.1.

If you need confrimation that Sun Java is installed and working, you need to click on the box at the top of the tester page and then on the 'Java Enabled' box on the left.

A:Monitor turns off randomly

First you need to try the monitor on another computer. If it works on another computer then your problem is most likely the video card.
