Can't run CMD elevated... in order to find other problems

Q: Can't run CMD elevated... in order to find other problems

In short: I can't run CMD in elevated mode
Slightly longer - but I think it matters: Trying to run the command "chkdsk /f /r" in order to find what's wrong and (hopefully) fix it. Apps (word, excel) are locking up; exe files won't run; can't get AVG to run in order to find problems.
What I've done:

Have right-clicked on CMD to open it in elevated mode but it won't open; eventually it times out.Went into files and found windows\system32\cmd.exe, right clicked on it, but same thing: it times out (saying that it didn't start in a timely fashion.)
Thanks in advance for your assistance!

HiI have a Lenovo Ideapad U530 and the hinges stock and broke the screen, I have already ordered the screen but need to find the front cover for the hinges, but was not able to find online or find FRU number. please help me with this issue. Thanks 

A:need to order lenovo u530 hinges cover or find FRU number to order online

Have you tried using parts lookup?  Choose "Mechanical Assemblies" on the left under commodity type.  Dont post your serial number here but if you put it in parts lookup you will find parts for your laptop.  I just looked up Generic u530.
With that part number you can get at Lenovo Encompass store.  Please verify part numbers before buying.
The above are for the hinge.  For the hinge cover  choose "LCD parts" on the left side under commodity type.  Below is hinge cover.

Two similar events have happened to me recently, all while logged into windows; I use only one account on this pc. On both occurrences the Screen flashes black; after that, in particular the first occurrence i was not able to access the admin account via
UAC; Group policy is set to ask for password upon elevation, good and well, but the password dialogue box said that the admin account was locked out. After rebooting, I was unable to login, with the exact same error appearing; A system restore fixed this issue.
Unfortunately I did not note the exact string of the error, and I see no references to it in event log except for this " Event 6000 The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> was unavailable to handle a notification event."  However
the error "description" was quite different error on this second occurrence.

Hi everyone,

There are two excel sheets I'm working on. The first is made up of 300 names of programs, one each row, and with 2 additional columns with version numbers and extra info. The second is a lot alike, but has about 100 rows and has 2 columns with different information from the first.


Adobe premiere , 6.0.2, video-editing software

Around 50 of these programs match by name (they are both in sheet 1 and 2), and i would like to import extra information about all matching programs from sheet 2 into sheet one, next to the existing information. That would mean that 50 or so rows have 2 additional columns and that about half of sheet 2 is left unmatched.

By hand, this means copying the names from sheet 2, finding a match in sheet one, then copying the 2 columns from sheet 2 and pasting them in the corresponding location in sheet 1. I hope there might be a better way to do this. Does anyone know a way?

Any help is appreciated.

I replaced an old computer (A) that is still working. I have an even older computer (B) that I want to do away with and use computer (A) as a secondary computer. I removed a couple of hard drives from computer (B) and installed them in computer (A). Computer (A) now has 1 hard drive with Windows XP, 1 hard drive with Windows 7, and the other drive is a data drive. When I boot up the system using EFI Bios it boots up in windows XP. I want to boot up in windows 7 but when I go to change the boot order in BIOS the drive with windows 7 doesn't show up. I have swapped cables and ports without any success. I disconnected the XP and data drives and the system did not boot into windows 7. However if I have all the drives connected I can go into the boot menu (F8) and choose the drive with Windows 7 and it boots up fine. Can anyone offer any advice to fix my problem?

The Windows Photo Viewer will not display photos in the order they are sorted by Windows Explorer.
This is not referring to the slide show feature, just the forward and back arrows.
The only order pictures can be viewed is by name despite Windows Explorer being set at view by date, ascending.
I have repaired Microsoft Live Essentials, uninstalled and reinstalled but the issue remains.
This is also not an issue with photo tags or photo names.
Windows Explorer sorts as selected but click a picture in the middle to view, click the forward arrow and instead of the next date picture being viewed, the next name picture is viewed.

A:Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order


I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

For me, this problem was present for jpg and png files, but not for bmp, dib, gif, jfif and what else can be opened with Windows Photo Viewer. To fix this, I have added the following to the Windows Registry:


After you added that to the registry, rightclick a jpg file, select "Open with", choose Windows Photo Viewer and click "Always open with this ... Read more

In fact the only responses I have received thus far are emails from your staff stating that they would assist me. My last contact with Lenovo was on 16 September 2019 and that was not even any email from your staff but from ME to your staff. It has been 8 days and I have yet to receive any reply. I am not sure what kind of service Lenovo has but not only is it bad, it appears to be non-existent.

I have just replaced my broken HP DV5 laptop (windows7) with a new Samsung NP350V5C-A08 with window 8 already installed. I am having major problems working out how to change the boot order.
On my HP the boot order was:
a) Optical disc drive.
b) Usb external hard drive.
c) Internal hard drive.

This configuration allowed firstly to upload Ubuntu 12.10 from a disc in the optical drive onto the external drive, this allowed me to run Ubuntu from an external hard drive, this saved me from having to partition the internal hard drive and I believe invalidating the guarantee.
With my new Samsung I cannot get to list the boot options in the bios (the only option is the internal Hitachi drive), I have been on the phone to Samsung but they could not help me and told me to contact Microsoft.

Does anybody have any ideas how I can run Ubuntu like I did with my HP laptop.

I am having problems getting the column order in a DataGridView object to display how I want it. Here are my objects:

Data object


class CData
//data members
private uint id;
private string name;
private object otherstuff;
... //standard
//get / set
public uint ID{
get{ return id; }
set{ id = value; }
... //basic get/set for the other data members
I then create multiple CData objects and place them in a List<CData> object "myList". When I go to bind this list to a DataGridView I use the following code


BindingList<CData> bindlist = new BindingList<CData>(myList);
myDataGridView.DataSource = bindlist;

the problem comes when my form is shown and my data is presented. Currently I can not figure out how to order the columns generated from my CData class properties. By default I thought they would show up in the order that they are declared like:

| ID | Name | OtherData |

but I find that the order is chosen at random (or some other factor I can not figure out) and they display something like:

| OtherData | ID | Name |

Now normally this wouldnt be too big of a problem but in my real world application I am using a Data object with over 100 fields which are generated from a file with a strict structure layout and it is critical that I see my columns in the proper order.

I hope I explained this properly and would appreciate any help that can be offered on the matter.

And write the following code in your Form load event to set the DisplayIndex

DisplayIndexAttribute displayIndex = Attribute.GetCustomAttribute(property, typeof(DisplayIndexAttribute)) as DisplayIndexAttribute;
if (displayIndex != null)

Problem number 1)
Every once in a blue moon my computer decide to change the boot order of my hard drives, so that the one with my OS is not included. The fix is simple; I go into the BIOS setting and add it back on top of the list. But it is quite annoying (especially if it happens for my girlfriend, who does not know how to fix it).
I have been unable to find any patterns to when it happens. It happens very rarely, maybe once every two months, but other times it does it twice a week.

Problem number 2)
This problem appeared together with the upgrade to windows 10 (from Windows 7). Once in a while, at least once per week, I start my computer and it is unable to play any kind of videos. On Youtube, it appears to load the video/commercial but does not move beyond 0.00. Same with VLC player, or any other players I have tried. Additionally, steam is unable to launch.
When I try to restart or turn off the computer, it appear to shut windows down normally, but it never turns of the power and I have to kill it by force.

Any help it appreciated.

There are on the Asus site Intel drivers
Chipset drivers and a SATA controller driver recently issued for Windows 10

There is also a VGA driver but as you are using the AMD9000 series card and the driver is for the integrated graphics that will be of little concern to you.

There are three main reasons for the situation with the boot priority order of hard disk priority been changed
It is NOT a windows issue, as of course this is in the firmware and outside of control of windows
1. BIOS faulty will not retain settings
2. Is time and date correct in BIOS if computer is left powered off and mains power disconnected
3. BIOS detects error on disk or controller and order is changed

Returning to the actual drives on that motherboard some SATA ports are controlled from the Intel chipset hence my mention of the driver above
and some from the ASMedia chip - which is the SATA driver aforementioned

Intel® Z77 chipset : 2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray
4 x SATA 3Gb/s port(s), blue
Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10
Supports Intel® Smart Response Technology, Intel® Rapid Start Technology, Intel® Smart Connect Technology
ASMedia® PCIe SATA controller : *62 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), navy blue

I would check
1. Time and date settings
2. I would if those are in order install drivers as mentioned and check
3. I would of course check carefully connections to the OCZ if the SATA leads are not the clip sort they are so easily partially dislod... Read more

Okay so I've just bought myself an xbox aware of the fact that I didn't need a wireless network adapter to connect to xbox live as I know there is a way it can work using my laptop.

This is not the first time I have set this up so an xbox can connect to live using a wireless laptop. I connected my brothers laptop to his xbox, and my friends to his xbox also not to long ago.

I found out how to do this by watching various tuorials online on how to do it. However, most of the tutorials explain how to do this with a windows XP laptop, which my brother and friend both had. I found a good few tutorials explaining how to do it with a Windows Vista laptop, which I have, and all the tutorials, yet different from the XP tutorials had the exact same instructions, but they are just not working for me.

Apparantly all I have to do is select my local area connection and my wireless network connection and bridge them together and make sure my ethernet cable is plugged into my laptop and into my xbox. Simple right? Well its just not working to me at all, on the local area network icon is says that the network cable is unplugged eventhough both ends of the cable are definetly plugged in, and the cable definetly works as I tested it on my brothers laptop/xbox just now.

Just bridging the two connections seems to simple, surely theres some other settings I have to change? Eventhough all the tutorials I have seen, its all it tell you to do oh and theres nothing wrong with my intern... Read more

OK, I'm using Windows 7 on a 64 bit quad core Asus PC in my part time business home office here.

About a year ago, I bought a Brother MFC-J6910DW multifunction. It was apparently poorly designed, because it printed in "reverse order", right out of the box. What this means is that, if I print a 100 page document, it will print the stack out with page 1 on the BOTTOM and page 100 on top, and if I want it in correct order ( of all my NERVE ) I'd have to hand sort it in reverse. YES, this seems INSANE but this is how they designed this printer!

The only "work around", I was told by support, was to set it to print in "reverse order", so that page 1 would come out at the top of the 100 pages. I kid you not, folks! So I did it, it sort of solved the problem, but was very slow at printing large files ( over about 40 pages ) because it apparently had to process them in reverse order in the Windows print spooler, then print them? So this went on until last week, when something went wrong in the scanner software and it could no longer communicate ( using this via wifi ) with my PC. So I had to uninstall the huge software app, and reinstall it again. I set the "reverse order" setting in the devices and printers settings, as the default, being I knew painfully about it, this time.

SO today, I had a rush project and had to print a file that was 42 pages. I started around 10 AM and was supposed to go out with the work around 1 PM. I needed 6 sets,... Read more

Please help. My computer is running extremely slow and it is almost brand new. I have scanned for viruses using Spybot and Spyware Doctor. Nothing unusual pops up. However, when I look at the CPU usage in the Task manager it will go from 5% upwards of 100% and change by the second. Since the CPU usage is so high I imagine this is why my computer will stall or be very slow opening up programs or executing any functions. I had help once where I used HiJack This and someone showed me what to delete to clean my computer. Can someone walk me through this? Or ss there any freeware available to help with this problem or does anyone have any suggestions. I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 which is using Windows XP operating system.

Hi jmontcri,

Check what programs are running (cntr-alt-del) will
bring up the task manager. Check "applications".

You should also check completely for spyware and

And your virtual memory is probably "thrashing", constantly
re-sizing. You should set it to what would be a "static"

Right click on My Computer. Hit "Properties". In the upper right
you will see "Advanced", then hit "settings", under "virtual
memory". Go to "Advanced". You can choose which drive
to use and you can re-set it manually. Hit "change"

If you have lots of RAM, set it for 400 Meg low, 400 meg
high. Hit set, apply and go out. You will need to reboot.
This should improve speed significantly.

None found any problems except the usual tracking webpages ... nothing major. Ok, so after rebooting after all of that, everything is running in Admin mode!

Not sure which tutorial applies to my situation. I think I need to create another user for me. I lost my account when I restored an image.

Don't seem to be able to unbold the text. I think I am in the built in Admin account.

A:Only have elevated adminstrator login

Hello sparhawk,

If you didn't have the user account when the image was created, then that would be why the account doesn't exist now.

If the Reset to defaults option is grayed out in Winaero User List Enabler, then that means you already are using the default settings. You may have undone your previous setting when you did the system image recovery.

Hope this helps,

Not sure if this is the proper forum for my question, but here it goes.

I'm using a SSH server to remotely access my notebook from work. It works well for SFTP and remote command line access using a dedicated, non-admin, user account.

Problem is when I want to run something that requires admin permission under that connection. The server runs cmd.exe under the context of a non-admin user I've created for it, so I'm limited in what I can do. Question is, how can I "elevate" that remote command prompt to execute admin-only programs and commands? UAC of course will not help under that conditions.


A:Elevated command prompt over SSH

before you enter the command you can use the runas command first. You can also save the credentials so you dont have to enter them in every time.



runas /noprofile /user: username "command"

This probably is not new to many, but I find it useful.

There are times I want an elevated command prompt. I usually type in "cmd", right click on it and run as administrator. If you need an elevated command prompt now and then, simply create a shortcut to "cmd". Right click on the shortcut, left click on properties. Click the shortcut tab and select "advanced". Finally, you can select "run as administrator".

Like I said, just something I didn't think about before, but it's handy to have.

As a sysadmin trying to roll out an image of windows7 to other machines, not having cmd parameters to automate an elevated cmd really annoys the hell out of me.

Referred here from the "Am I Infected?" forum,
thanks to BC Advisor .
In this link you will see several initial logs from Security Check, Farbar, etc.
I had Microsoft Security Essentials on my IE7.
I had an "update Java" type prompt that I tried to close.
(Would never open that!)
Suddenly MSE closed, I don't seem to have it available anymore.
A fake Security program tried to run, but I closed it.
I haven't observed any problems, other than the fact that MSE is disabled.
This may/may not be relevant: I had a some major problems several months
ago with viruses - I tried to repair them on my own - I accidently
deleted part of the MasterBootRecord, so I had to re-format my drive
and start over.
Gringo helped me through that.

I have a gadget that has buttons for hibernate and standby to run a shortcut. If I run the short cut directly by clicking it, it works, but if I try to run it from the html button, it will not acknowledge the run as administrator setting. I have tried it with VBScript and cannot change the powercfg - h state.

Here is the html:

HTML Code:
<a id="hibernate" onMouseOver='ShowTip(1,"Hibernate");' onMouseOut='HideTip(1);' href="../core/Hibernate.lnk" >
<img src="../images/Hibernate.png" border="0" width="20" height="20" >
<span id='tooltip1' class='tooltip'></span>
Here is the shortcut:

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c powercfg -h on & rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0

Here is the VBScript:

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run "%COMSPEC% /c POWERCFG /Hibernate ON"
WshShell.Run "rundll32.exe PowrProf.dll SetSuspendState Hibernate"

A:Cannot run elevated shortcut from html

You are really going about it the hard way. Why reinvent the wheel. If you are just going to use Metro/Start, use Ctrl-Alt-Del, to pull up the Start Button. If using 8.1.1, it is already on the Metro/start screen. If always using the desktop, use Classic Shell or Start8 from Stardock.com

The last three days upon booting up my pc I get a windows box with
"Run a Legacy CPL Elevated"-allow or not allow. Since I have no idea what this message means I have chosen not to allow. I'm hoping you fabulous techs can enlighten me as to the meaning of this particular message.

Upon clicking details this is what comes up:


Remember, I'm not a tech person so any explanation needs to be as non tech as possible. Thanks!

A:Solved: Run a Legacy CPL Elevated

That has to do with your SigmaTel sound drivers. There must be some kind of compatibility issue, though I don't quite know why it would have just surfaced now.

I could not find any updated drivers, though perhaps somebody else will. For now I would think you can allow it.

If you wait to take any action until somebody comes through with a 100% definite answer I'm not offended one bit
