I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Most of the dumps are inconclusive and involve many different processes at the time of BSOD, I susupect a bad memory module.

Probably caused by : Rtnicxp.sys (Rtnicxp.sys is related to Realtek 10/100/1000 NDIS 5.1 Driver.)

Probably caused by : memory_corruption
Probably caused by : memory_corruption

I would run a memory tester

Download the prebuilt ISO, burn it to CD as an Image, boot from that CD and run the memory test for a couple of hours or overnight to stress test the memory.

Hi guys

been trying to get my son to understand and look after his PC
am sure you can all imagine how that goes LOL

Downloading Malwarebytes and trying to get him to use along with his current AV .. i am still finding on a weekly basis that running Malwarebytes im finding multiple errors & a attached file

could u guys explain bit more for me about this and advise of how, if i can resolve these issue's
i will weep on trying to educate my kids about safe PC useand carry on using Malwayrebytes also

A:understanding & keeping ontop Malwayrebytes

Hi,

These problems seem to be stemming from toolbars and smilies. This is probably due to your son downloading the advertised smilies that pop up. I would therefore recommend uninstalling the "MyWebSearch" toolbar from ALL browser. Once it is completely gone, run Malwarebytes again. You will probably pick up more viruses. When you run it again after that, if the errors have dwindled (maybe to none) then the problem is being resolved. If however, the errors have not lessened, then the "big daddy" virus is still loose and reinfecting your computer.

Richard

EDIT: Wanted to included this earlier, but keyboard packeded up so I sent my post anyway: If your son is using Internet Explorer, I would strongly recommend using a different browser such as Chrome or Firefox.

Im buidling an envitroment for 8 call center uses as they often get confused about haveing two desktops so were trying to make it easyer for them.

Any ideas on this?

**Further testing.** We tyred with Sleep isnt a good option ,as the Limeted user gets the option to log back in.
as we have cisco switches theres a delay in the network starting on the pc, issue were getting from time to time the clients cant see the server so the pc shuts down. some have the ping command in to delay the command futher for 10secs for example.
Could someone suggest any edits to this?

Hi guysI have been trying to install microsoft flight simulator x since yesterday and I was having errors all the time. (It was giving an error about Simconnect) and after doing some research, I resolved it by installing SDK and Simconnect manually, but now I have another problem...Whenever I click fsx.exe it says "This version of the file is not compatible with the version of windows you are running. Check your system information to determine if you need 32 bit or 64 bit version of the file and contact the publisher of the software"Also, I cannot install Acceleration expansion pack. As I click "setup" it says "Flight Simulator X: Acceleration requires english version of Flight Simulator X" and it quits installation. By the way I already have the english version of the game.I am running Windows 7 Ultimate Edition (x64). I have Nvidia Geforce GTX 260, Intel Core i5 750, 4GB of DDR3 1333 RAMI also use Norton Internet Security 2010I wish I can find a solution here.

The first 3 things:





Quote:
Please start by running these hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link)

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Malware (read the details at the link)


Running 29 of the last 34 memory dumps. Will be back when they're done.....

Several of the memory dumps have issues with rtnicxp.sys - a component of your Realtek network card drivers.
Please do the following:
- download a fresh copy of the latest version of this driver from the Realtek website: http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/...Level=3&Conn=2
- uninstall the current version from your system
- install the freshly downloaded version
- check to see if you have any further BSOD's

Another possible issue is your McAfee protection. I'd suggest downloading a free antivirus for testing purposes (I suggest these: http://www.carrona.org/freeav.html )
Then uninstall all of your McAfee products.
Then use this free tool to remove any remnants of McAfee: http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS100507
Then IMMEDIATELY install and update the free antivirus.
Then check to see if there are any further BSOD's.

Finally, please update these older drivers:

Hi and welcome to TSF I looked at your first 3 dump files which showed error code 0x1a memory management here is a little info about that
0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
This memory management error is usually hardware related. See the General Troubleshooting of STOP Messages checklist above. If this occurs while installing Windows, also check the Windows system requirements including the amount of RAM and disk space required to load the operating system. If none of the above resolves the problem, see the MSDN article linked above for further steps.
I will ask someone to look into your dumps further and get back to you with anything else they may find for now try running memtest86+ download the iso file unzip and burn to a disc use img burn for this and test each stick one at a time in their slots then switch them to the other and retest run the test for at least 7 passes also make sure the memory is matched http://www.google.co.uk/url?q=http:/...y&ved=0CAkQygQ

Hello could someone please lead me through the process of wiping a hard drive clean so that i can reinstall windows 98 se on the hardrive the machine is a gigabyte Technologie the bios is Award Software
500 mhz Pentium 3
32 kb primary memory cache
512 kb secondary memory cache
192 mb memory installed
14gb hard drive
the machine came with XP on but the processor blew and as I had no answers from my last post as the windows activation sequence locked me out, I thought best thing was to put Windows 98 se on it as it would run better also that the XP on it was probably the reason the processor blew. I don't have an XP disc either. It has installed 98 se on it alright just don't have sound and won't pick up the mass storage controller device have tried 2 other ways to get it to install but it hasn't worked. If anyone could help I would be grateful.
Thanks in advance
 

A:Solved: Help please.I have installed 98se ontop of xp not realising you couldn't go b

I can't turn flight mode off in settings (as it is "greyed out") and the slider button is completely broken.(I have fixed this button before)I want to avoid fixing the button, is it possible to just disable the flight mode in registry or something like that?

A:T430s flight mode button broke - Stuck in flight mode

Welcome to the forum!
 
There's no trick known to me bypass the wifi switch. I think you will need to remove the keyboard and palmrest and manually move the motherboard switch to the "on" position, (the button on the palmrest actually moves this switch)
 
I just hope the motherboard switch is not broken ...

Good luck!

Edit: I just opened one of my T430s yesterday and I saw/remembered the switch is not on the motherboard itself but to a small board which is connected to the motherboard via a ZIF cable... I hope you could fix the issue... ;-)

Hello again! While trying to reinstall over a system failure on Windows XP Pro, I've tried to use the sticker on the bottom of my laptop to reinstall Windows XP, but it keeps rejecting my key! After several attempts, it keeps rejecting that sticker key. This pre-installed laptop came with no CD and case. Do you think it would be safe, seeing how I plan to do so, buy Vista Ultimate and install it over the same partition? I noticed, while reinstalling XP Pro, my hard drive contents were in tact. I was hoping Vista Ultimate would let me install over my XP Pro, though I'm currently unable to use my product key. Any ideas?

Yes, most likely. Even if it doesn't, you can use features like Compatibility Mode, and other programs (DOS Box, VirtualBox, and others) that can be used to run programs that only ran on outdated OSes.
I would also recommend building your own PC (something we can help you with here @ Bleeping Computer), as you can save a lot of money that way.

Does this sound familiar and what should I try to resolve this??

More then likely the reason your Flight simulator isnt working correctly is due to a recent update that kinda goofed up the Realtek Audio Controllers. Here is the info at this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925902 If that is the error you are getting at startup run that.

Hi guys

Iím trying to load Flight Sim X without any success, I was wondering if anyone knows what my problems is. I start installing Disk one and the software starts loading itself ok but after a few minutes and when things appear to be fine, the InstallShield will stop loading and just hang there, the DVD will then runs for a few moments and then stops. Iíve tried installing the software about 12 times now and on every occasion it appears to stop loading at different points in the process. For example I can get 25% complete on the InstallShield and then it locks up the PC, once I managed to get 50% complete on the InstallShield before it locked up The whole screen also appears to freeze. To get out of the software requires a reboot of the PC. I posted this problem on another forum and the guys kindly suggested that I go to the Microsoft help website and try a number of fixes, which i did. These were the Error message " 1722" fix ( which did not work), the Error 52 fix ( again did not work). I'm running Windows XP if that helps. Any help would be really appricated.

A:Flight sim X problem

First of all, Flight Sim X is good enough to keep trying (at least, it's good enough AFTER the SP1 update).

I don't know the answer to your problem, but one thought occurs. Flight Sim X is a massive installation, and takes a long freakin time to complete. It's one of the longest installs I've ever gone through. Could it be that it's still running, and just appears frozen? I've had a few games that appear to hang during installation, but if I go and make a sandwich or watch some TV or something and just let it run, it turns out it was going all along.

I'm an enthusiastic flight simmer and I've just upgraded to a new powerful but expensive system. Unfortunately I have not much experience troubleshooting computers, so please be patient with me.

The new system is great, no stuttering at all and high frame rates as expected but the frustrating thing is that I get a BSOD in almost every flight when playing FSX. Sometimes this happens immediately after firing up FSX, sometimes this happens 7h hours into a transatlantic flight which is even more frustrating... Because I use this computer exclusively for FSX I cannot tell whether the BSOD would happen in other situations as well. The computer is networking with 2 laptops, another desktop and a tablet, all of them running add-ons when I'm flying. I conjecture that the BSOD is related to the overclocking with which I have no personal experience at all, neither have I run any system stability tests on my own. I desperately need help but please take into account my low level of knowledge and experience when trying to help. Thanks a lot in advance. I have collected all .dmp files in the attached zipped folder.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

MY opinion: Best joystick for FSX is the Saitek X52 Pro. Best price will require some shopping around.
I personally get along just fine in FSX with the Logitech Force 3D Pro. Well under $50 at any number of shops...Compusa, BestBuy, Circuit City, Walmart etc.

Hello,
I'm having trouble installing Flight Simulator X.
After I put in the serial code, the program indicates that "Airbus Series Vol. 1 (FS X)'s files will be installed in the following directory ;
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

When I click "Next" then this appears ;
Cannot install this program, please select your correct Flight Simulator X directory.

What do I have to do to install this game ? I have Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

Thanks

This may seem really patronising, so sorry if it does, but are you sure you have bought the full game and not just an add-on (Airbus Series Vol. 1)?
