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.)

A: American Megatrends message unknown

OK, you are running the system overclocked. Not too much however it shows both ram and cpu running faster than normal. It is probably the board failing however the very first thing I would do would be to return ALL settings to stock. Clear RTC [cmos] to return settings to stock. Once you clean RTC, pull the pw connectors from ALL drives; both hd and optical. Now disconnect any usb device ie printer, scanner, external drive, etc.

Pw ON and see if the board will successfully complete POST.

Remember there is NO safe overclock. All overclocking entails some degree of risk.

This morning I went to turn my computer on and got the message below. It's saying something about the USB devices, but I don't have any devices plugged in to the computer. I know that one of my USB ports is damaged and has been for awhile. Could this be causing it? If so, how would I remove it? Do I have to take the computer apart? Is it something I can do on my own? I am not very computer literate.

Hi, as you say it is likely to be a damaged USB port.

I don't know why but yesterday, after restarting my computer it beeped once then went to the AMI screen. Plus my computer has become very slow it might have something to do with it. I am asked to press f1 or f2 and if I press f1 I go to this configuration screen and I don't know what to do. But I do see that the word BIOS is written everywhere on the screen. It dose that every time I turn it on. I haven't had any big problems except my computer is running kinda slow. How do I get rid of the message?

A:American Megatrends

This means that the hard drive is about to fail. S.M.A.R.T is a utility that monitors the health of the hard drive and reports any potential problems, like an early warning system. When it says "S.M.A.R.T Status Bad" This is not a good thing. Does it give you an option to bypass and get to Windows? If so backup your important data.

My computer is working fine, excpet for one minor detail...

My Asus P5N32 SLI SE Deluxe doesn't like my new 4GB of 800MHz ram. The ram is fine. XP 32 bit runs fine with only 2-3 GB in use, but Vista Ultimate 64-Bit is terrible, running at least 5 times slower and maxing out the processor and freezing a couple of minutes just to open Fire Fox. I am considering buying a new mobo, but I heard there is another way.

Some people have gone into their BIOS and enabled an option called "Memory Remapping," which fixed the problem. The catch is: My BIOS doesn't have that option for some odd reason... Surprise, surprise after my cellphone provider had to send 2 SIM cards to me for the phone to work and my External Backup HD had failed just a couple of months after I bought it(Goodbye 100+ Gigabytes of data).

I checked the manual that went with my mobo, and the bios version in the manual and on my computer were EXACTLY the same! Though, the menu in the Manual had many more options than did the one on my computer. So, I go to Asus's website and download the latest official (not beta) driver. Then, I pop in the Asus CD that came with my mobo and tried to run "Asus Update". Every time I run this I get an error message: "Unable to create NT driver... Read more

Ok, so before you reply, please make note that I didn't build this pc myself, it was custom built in a company by order. I don't know a thing about inside of computer. Of course, I know the main parts, but repairing or tinkering, nooo.

Pc specs:
Intel i5-2400 3.1 Ghz Quad Core
8 GB of RAM
Nvidia GeForce 550ti Graphics Card.

The thing is, in my opinion, this pc is properly cooled and built, because I've been having it for almost a year and I've never had this problem before.

So okay, I got back home and turned on my pc. And I noticed a problem. My video was slow. Videos on youtube were slow and choppy, I tried like moving windows and their movement was slow. At first I thought its a video card or monitor problem and I tried rebooting my pc. When I pressed restart, before booting windows, the computer shows the window:
American Megatrends

(Computer info)

CPU over temperature error!
Press F1 to continue setup.
Is it really overheated? Because I've never had this problem before, I didn't had it the other day I was using it and I'm using it a lot. What to do? I really can't just open up the case and see the problem, I'm not that experienced.
 

A:American Megatrends - CPU Over Temperature ERROR

Why can't it be overheating? Things do break, or come loose, and they can get dirty too.

Download HW Monitor and see what the CPU/Core temps are, for that matter check all the temps. Best would be to post a screen shot of HW Monitor.

HW Monitor: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

If the computer is truly overheating then it will need to be opened up to see why.

Hello, experts!
For the past few weeks, I've been seeing the AMI screen everytime I turn on my computer. It wasn't like that before, so I have no clue why it's showing up now. I pressed f1 and f2 numerous times and went through every session, still I cannot find the problem of why it keeps appearing during startup.

Since I just received a new computer this April, I'm not very familiar with the new AMI then I was with Windows XP. Instead, I used screen-shot to show my AMI screen. I hope this will help!

here is what is on the screen when it freezes

AMIBIOS
TYAN TSUNAMI AT V2.00.01 012520001800

then down at the bottom of the screen it says
62-0101-00999-0010111-071595-440BX/GX-51830001-5

What we have done:
Switched PCI video card to another PCI slot
Disconnected everything but the floppy/cd/harddrive
Reseated the RAM, switched RAM slots, and tried different RAM modules with ones that are known to work.

He says 1 time it made it past checking NVRam (where it counts the RAM) and then froze when it first said hit del to enter BIOS.

Edit: He also remembered that when he first booted he had 3 RAM modules in and all it would say is American Megatrends with the logo and that was it, so he removed 2 and left 1 and thats where we are now.

2nd Edit: When I asked him what happens when he tries it with no RAM he says "nothing, it beeps".

Anyone have any ideas on what to try next? Could it just be that the motherboard is bad where the RAM fits?
 

A:Problems getting to POST on American Megatrends MOBO

Alright - I just recieved word that it now works. Which leads me to believe that even though it appeared we had the RAM set properly it wasn't.
Now it boots into Win98 and just gives the usual errors when you don't have proper drivers installed and such, I'm going to let him work on that on his own because I think he has a pretty good handle on getting that set straight.
(he pulled this PC together from scrap parts so even getting this thing to run is a plus for him)
I'll post back with any other motherboard related problems that might crop up.

Here's the problem: When I start my computer, I'll get a black screen with a bunch of text with "American Megatrends" as the header. The screen is unusual, and on the bottom it says "CPU fan error!, press F1 to continue." If I simply press f1 and ignore it, my computer eventually shuts off, and restarting my computer doesn't get my display back, I have to reset my cmos.

Things that I've tried: Now, I had this problem before, and my computer doesn't have a cmos switch, so I had to take out the battery for a couple minutes, and that worked.
Today I woke up to have the same problem. Only this time, when I took out the battery and put it back, the problem persisted.
So I tried entering my system setup and set "CPU fan speed" to ignore, that still did nothing.

So I'm aggravated, annoyed and helpless. Any help would be appreciated.

I've run Ad-Aware, SpybotS&D and Panda Antivirus and it's still there. Anybody know what kind of error this is and how to get rid of it? It doesn't seem particularly harmful, just annoying.

I've just encountered a new problem. When I boot my computer I get an error message:
"ibm00001.exe not found"
I click OK on the message, it goes away, and everything works o.k. from then on.
Could someone tell me what is trying to start this process so I can remove it?
I did a search on the file and it is wasn't in my computer and I don't know what other program could be trying to execute it.
Thanks, Royt622

It's due to your Security settings in Internet Options.

This security policy exists for good reason. It prevents computers
becoming infected by spyware, general malware and viruses.

But if it's bothering you that much you can change your settings:

With IE open, go to Tools->Internet Options.
Click on the Security Tab and then hit the "Custom Level" button.
From there, you can set your ActiveX settings.

However, the fact that you are receiving those messages on certain sites is most likely protecting you from some sort of infection.

Hi all -
I have recently had this message pop up in the top left corner of the screen of my Toshiba Satellite laptop -
This has only been in the last 2 days that I recall, and usually when I copy/paste from Text Editor

I have just purchased some very expensive software but I cannot install it. Recently upgraded to win 2k on a HP PII 450. I have been getting a recurring and annoying error msg on my screen. "HPMSP4ia.exe has generated errors and will be closed" How do I get rid of this. If I try to install my new software this msg keeps multiplying. If I don't stop the install I will have thousands of these messages on my screen??????????

It sounds like this is a file specific to your HP, that is running in the background as a system management function. I would try HP's web site for information on disabling this during installs, or for help with what may be wrong.

each time i turn on my laptop, i get a status message that states that the computer is not able to install at a particular location:

C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Temp\7zS1538\setup\Status\

there is no such file at that location. there is no 7zS1538 folder. there are many files in the temp folder.

i have already tried to go back to a restore point before this occurred and no luck.

it will not close out but to get rid of it it i simply go to task manager and its gone until i restart again.

everything else seems to be fine. i have updated AVG anti-virus.

the only other problem is my windows media player is freezing up once in a while.

any suggestions would be helpful.

I am new here and this is my first post, so be gentle. When I try to use a certain program that uses my webcam, I get the message "Unsupported Color Depth" and the vid screen is black. I don't know if the problem is with my cam (Intel) or the video card (ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon). Every other program using these works just fine. Any ideas?

I've had this 'problem' for a couple of months and am having no luck finding out what it means. Everytime I log off the internet I get the following message on my screen: "The instruction at "0x7c9105f8" referenced memory at "0x01360010". The memory could not be "read". Click OK to terminate the program."
Any ideas? Windows XP

Any suggestions appreciated

Could that the the Marquee Screen saver being invoked with no entered text? That's what it has a a default text string. I think if you turn off the screen saver it'll stop doing that.
