Q: unable to determine precize model of HP MINI in order to opt...

here is the thing - i need a tip, the internal sticker shows a lot of chinese picture, the only thing that is written with roman characters is the first line:it sais: 1584-100 (space) S/N: a very long number - not sure if i should paste it here.one verse below there is this:Regulatory model: chinese bushy-writing // RMN: HSTNN-F05C - not sure if this helpsnow - the "my comp -> properties -> sais it's a HP 210-2000 but it might be too general, there were countless incarnations of the 210-2XXX series.my unit uses 1,5 V ddr3 - 1GB - 10600S samsung ram - which renders the unit pretty much unusable, even after killing most of the services/processes it still eats 650-800 MB and opening a firefox literally ends the session.i need to know how to find the very exact type of the computer so that i can: buy a 2GB/4GB ddr3 chip that would help, or just forget about it and dump it ;/any hints/tips welcome.kind regards,romanps. why does my "inside sticker" not look like any of the ones shown in the support vids? the computer was bought in poland 6 years ago, Have I been cheated? The chinese "writing" renders any support material totally useless.

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.)

Run a 'sys info' and break into BIOS setup, the model number should be there on both main pages. 
 
USB 3.0 ports (back then), have a blue 'tongue' inside the port, 2.0 have black.

Had an AMD HP G62-227CL laptop that overheated and required motherboard replacement with similar Intel motherboard. Old board clocked at 2.2 MHZ .. new one is 2.0 MHZ.
Board I got from Ebay works but now computer believes that it is a Compaq CQ42 Laptop. Do not know the model number, which I would need on HPs site to download BIOs upgrades.

Is there a way to tell which bios I need or what model I now have?

Thank you,

I left this camera outside one night. Now, when I open the part that swings open to turn on the camera, the camera turns on, however I don't get any picture in the view finder.

I would like to attempt to repair this camera myself.

Does anyone have any idea what part should be replaced?

I have in my notes I should install a new base assembly for this camera. I think a camera repair person told this to me. But it has been some time, so I can't be sure.

Would someone knowledgeable please tell me if they think it is the base assembly that needs replacing. And, also tell me how difficult is it to replace that part.

I live in a very rural area. No company is nearby for me to take the camera and ask them for an estimate and what needs to be done. So, I will have to do this myself.

Thanks
 

A:Jvc digital and mini video camcorder model #: Gr d870u.

Left outside. Moisture condensed on the electronics and probably corroding the circuit boards. Best bet is to try and dry it out. A folk remedy people try is to keeping it in a warm place in a plastic bag with a dessicant. Uncooked rice is said to work. Remove battery. Wait a week.

If that don't work, throw it away. I still think these old tape cameras are good, but the world has moved on to flash based cameras.

Hi,

I've been looking at a low end 2 in 1 hybrid, it's mainly to be used as a laptop but occasionally as a tablet. I've seen a few issues noted in this forum and some appear to have been resolved by updates.
I've been looking at this particular model as it can be had for ?189 from Currys in the UK. I like this model because it has a FHD screen and is currently the cheapest. The other other options are;

Asus T100 - ?200
HP Pavillion x2 2015 - ?240

These are a little of my price range.

Acer Switch 10 - ?250
Asus T100 Chi - ?300


I think ?200 is the right price point for this type of tablet. I've read a few reviews online, some good, some bad but it's not really clear what FW version they are using as I know this model had a rocky start.
I'm a little unsure about the 8.9" screen, it might just be too small. I do like the idea of 2 batteries, as battery life is a key factor.

To any owners...would you buy this device again? Is the screen size OK to use as a laptop or are you finding it too small? Are the majority of issues resolved by firmware?

Thanks for looking

As well as Toshiba not responding quickly with the possible update/solution, When everything works as it should it is great

Occasionally, my entire system will just hang and either be forced to restart, or, very rarely, it will be able to regain control and continue working. I've ran memtest and memtestx86 to determine if the cause is my ram, but both tests showed the ram is working fine. The cause could be my GPU, an ASUS R9 290, but I have already done two RMA's to have the card repaired.

To get a bit of insight on these BSOD's, my system is very unstable for most games. When running Rust, my system seems to be extremely stable and can run the game for eternity. Whilst watching videos on youtube, the system is somewhat stable, the potential of a crash is still there, but I am free to do as I please for hours. Now, when playing other games, such as: League of Legends, Garry's Mod, Fallout: New Vegas, Bordelands 2, the system is extremely unstable. The most I can get is a few hours and crashing is extremely frequent.

I have been told that doing a bios update fixes most problems of an unstable system, but my motherboard rejected the latest bios that I tried to use in the update. I am afraid I have nothing left up my sleeve, and thus, must turn to these forums.

I have used the DM Log Collector program, so the ZIP is attached below. I am hoping to have this problem resolved soon as I must escape this elo hell in League of Legends and reach my true potential: Challenjour.

A:Strange BSODs, Unable to Determine Cause Alone

So let's go through all that I do know and what I think I know.

System is somewhat unstable. BSODs are occurring a few times a day and seem to be reducing their occurrence as the days go on.

When the system crashes, there is not Blue Screen displayed, the system automatically restarts.

It would appear that Google Chrome could be possibly causing these crashes as I am able to play games for a longer period of time with Google Chrome closed. When it is open, the system will crash more frequently and even crash whilst I am watching videos or looking on various forums.

Some games retain stability for longer, Rust, World of Warcraft. Other games have some stability to them, League of Legends, Fallout: New Vegas. And other games will almost always crash within the first hour, Garry's Mod, Borderlands 2. So these crashes really depend on a factor. A factor that I do not know because I cannot read these .dmp files and someone has yet to view this thread and read them to me.

It's really a game of guessing and I am losing.

A:BSOD Unable to determine origin

Hi bickas.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall the program at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
I would suggest you to uninstall Viscosity Virtual Adapter V9.1, at least as a test.

Code:
Unloaded modules:
fffff880`058b5000 fffff880`058c2000 visctap0901.

Been receiving numerous BSOD for months. I never was able to determine the exact cause the first time. Most of the time the error occurs during a game such as Skyrim, Diablo 3. However, sometimes the error happened when watching videos on YouTube or even while idle.

Every time I thought I fixed it, I get a new one. Most of the time it was IRQ less than or equal. I swapped to an older card and it was less frequent, but still got them. Im back to the original card and still get the errors. Sometimes going days without errors, sometimes cant even go 20 minutes without one.

Im a bit lost in the dark on this one, documentation on the web point every direction, blaming video drivers, windows programs and even wireless adapters.

I reviewed a similiar situation in another post and am going to try those tecniques.
 

A:My Dell 9400 is infected, but I am unable to determine by what.

That slow start could be caused by too many items in startup, a failing hdd, a very fragmented hdd or malware.
Suggest you backup all important files or create an image of the entire drive and store it on an external medium. If the 
hdd is failing, the more you use it the more likely it will become unbootable and unable to recover files.
 
Use CCleaner to cleanup the crud. Once you have done that open CCleaner and click on Tools and choose Startups.
At the bottom of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you post the list of programs presently starting up
at boot. Post that list back here.
 
After you have backed up the computer and posted the list of startups you can run some programs to hopefully find and
remove whatever adware and malware is on the computer.
 
Use the instructions for Rkill, MBAM, AdwCleaner, Junkware Removal Tool, and Eset online scanner in your previous topic for a different computer.
Make sure that all active security programs are stopped from running/ disabled before running the scans.

Just found a very interesting problem.  I just purchased a new 27" monitor and connected to my Dell XPS (9343) using a mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable.  The laptop was on and running when I connected everything and closed the lid.  Everything was working beautifully, until I ran WIndows update and had to reboot.  Then all *** broke loose.  The machine started beeping like crazy and the battery charge light started blinking orange then white and then it shut down.  After I recovered from my almost heart attack (I thought my laptop had died)...I opened the lid and hit the power button and it started up fine.  I closed the lid after it rebooted, and continued to work fine.  So as a test, I restarted the laptop again with the lid closed while the external monitor was connected and again the beeping and the orange light blinking.  Proceeded to turn it back on with the lid open...everything fine.  I checked the BIOS settings and everything seems to be normal.   It seems there's a problem with this laptop not being able to be restarted in the closed lid position when an external monitor is connected (something I do ALL THE TIME with my Lenovo work laptop that is also connected to an external monitor).   Has anyone else had this problem?  Is Dell aware of this issue??

"We're unable to process your order at this time. Please try another payment or contact Lenovo". I have this alert every single time I try to place my order. I lost the amazing deal on Yoga c930 last week already and still trying to buy a different laptop here. I am very frustrated with this but it still didn't work! I and my sister tried on different computers with different emails and phone number, but nothing work! If anyone could help me, it would be very much appreciated! Thanks a lot!

Hi, I've been trying to order a T470 online (both on the education store and standard lenovo store) but when trying to customize a configuration, the page returns an error message ("invalid configuration" followed by "price below floor price"). Is there any way around this? I have tried different browsers and different machines. Cheers,Alex

Why can't I change my UEFI boot order? I want to boot first from CD/DVD, then USB stick, then HDD if neither is loaded. When I go into the BIOS setup, it is simple to change the boot order. However, my system always uses the UEFI boot order, which I have been unable to change. I think that I should enable legacy boot, but when I choose that, I get a warning message. Would I render my laptop unbootable if I did enable legacy boot? My system is working, and I don't want to crash it, just change the boot order.

Lenovo MT-M 7244-A35 M58 ThinkCentre desktop

I can get into the bios configuration for boot order, but the USB flashdrive is listed under 'Excluded' and the appropriate keyboard controls only cause the computer to beep.

Image below:

The Lenovo site had queries on this but none helped.
Any ideas?




Also note, can not boot from DVD either.

In the Bios (N1WET35W 1.14 2017-07-12) of my Thinkpad T470s I cannot change the "Boot Priority Order" using the "+" and "-" keys to move the device up or down. When I press those keys, I hear a beep and nothing happens. "UEFI Secure Boot" is enabled, and even if I disabled the same happens. I would like to change the boot order, can you help me?

So, I didn't know where else to go to ask this question, so I put it here.  If you know the answer in a different forum page, please let me know. The hard drive to my HP crashed and I recently purchased a new one.  I have gotten to the point where I am going to need to obtain a new OS for it. I made it to the HP website, to the "HP Support - Order software and driver media" page to purchase the software/driver that I need for it.  I would like to purchase it, but it seems that the website will not accept my Serial Number.  It's nothing complex; it simply won't let me type it in.  I am able to put in my information on the other bars (name, address, etc.), but won't for that line.  Does anyone know how to fix this issue?  I'm worried that it's going to tell me that there aren't any more left, which would be awful, and I'm hoping that it's just a webpage bug.  If anyone could help, that would be great.

Hi, all.
 
As the title says, I have Windose 8 on a 64-bit Samsung laptop and I need to change the boot order to test if a bootable Linux CD works, which I intend to use if it does (or download it again and make a new one and use that), but I can't change the boot order from the OS to the DVD ROM drive.
 
Another thread online said something to do with Legacy but I don't know what that is nor how to disable it to see if I can enable and select booting from the DVD ROM drive.
 
Please help. Thanks.

A:Unable to Change Boot Order in Samsung Laptop UEFI

I don't know what model the Samsung is but in UEFI settings make sure SecureBoot is disabled. If there is a setting for FastBoot or QuickBoot then disable it also.
 
If there is a Mode listed set it to UEFI/Legacy. 
 
Reboot and enter UEFI. Can you see change your boot device priority?
 
http://superuser.com/questions/521389/how-do-i-boot-my-samsung-laptop-from-a-cd-dvd
 
On a Samsung tapping Esc at boot may give you a boot menu that will let you select a boot device but SecureBoot should still be disabled.

I'm trying to run Memtest86+ and have an image on DVD which I'm trying to boot from.

I restart and change boot priority, save and exit and the machine still boots to the HDD.

The Mobo uses "Click BIOS II" V 1.0.107.
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks,

MK

I was able to change the boot order by moving the desired boot device to the first position at the top of the screen, double clicking on it and a menu pops up, then selecting the appropriate device. It then reboots to that device. Not very intuitive but... it worked.

If it's not saving your changes, replace the CR-2032 battery on the mainboard.

While attempting to do an upgrade from Vista Home Premium 64 bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit I get the following message; "Setup was unable to determine if BitLocker Drive Encryption is in use." The only option then is to cancel the upgrade. I've tried installing 3 times now with the same results.

To my knowledge BitLocker isn't even installed on my pc. I have never even heard of it until this evening Should I try for a clean install? I have also had my CD/DVD drive vanish from My Computer after rebooting.

Thanks for any help.

A:"Setup was unable to determine...BitLocker"

Well, I know the Vista Home Premium version does not contain Bit Locker, are you encrypting the drives any other way?

Just asking, but are you compressing the drive?

Hi,
I am having a lot of problems with changing the appearance of my mini. I can only change one thing at a time. When I try to make another change, it changes back to the earlier setting. My system is Windows XP. I've contacted the tech folks for pogo games,
but it has not helped me. I haven't seen this problem posted anywhere else. If anybody has any answers, PLEASE HELP. Thank you!!!!
 

A:Pogo games, unable to revise mini

When you're in Pogo, have you tried asking other player's? You'll get way more - and better - help than from Pogo.

I don't do mini's, can't stand them, so I don't know really how to help. The only thing I can think of is to make sure your cache and all temp files are deleted [Sun Java files too] and try again.

I have a 1GB Cruzer Mini flash drive, and this morning, I was copying MP3 files over, which didn't amount to 970 MB, which was the amount of free space it gave me. Near the end of copying , it gave me a "Disk is full" error, but I still had about 450 MB left. Anyone else run into this or have any idea why I can't access the rest of the space? Thanks in advance!
 

A:Unable to access all of Cruzer Mini Flash Drive

Solution

Since I never heard any suggestions, I'll assume no one knew, so I'll post the fix for anyone who encounters a similar problem. The drive was originally formatted as FAT and only let me use a bit over 500 MB. Once reformatted (through the Disk Management utility in Windows) with FAT32, I was able to use all the space with no problem. Why SanDisk failed to mention this anywhere is beyond me. Hope this helps someone.
