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.)

My toshiba ultra book Z930 won't turn on. Yesterday it got damp when water leaked from a water bottle in my bag where the computer was.Only the yellow light blinks.

I bought it in april2012.
I use windows 8 and generally but not always use it with an A3 screen.
Is there anything I can do to save the data and/or switch it on.

Have you any advice. I can't get any help till 6th jan.


A:Solved: My toshiba ultra book z930 won't turn on

Yesterday it got damp when water leaked from a water bottleClick to expand...

did it actually get wet ?, i suspect it did

i would allow it to completely dry out - maybe putting in an airing cupboard or somewhere warm

then take the battery out and the power adapter and hold the power key on for 60 seconds

if it still does not work , i suspect the pc has been damaged

to recover the data - you maybe able to remove the harddrive and then using an adapter - plug it in to a USB port on another PC and access the files
just depends on if the water also caused damage to the harddrive

I am sorry if I post this in the wrong section

I am looking to make a e-Book for personal use, not commercial use, so I don't want to shell out money for a e-book writer, is there any thing on the net that will allow me to write an e-book for free?
Yes I have tried Google and I have tried Cnet, but with out success, can some one here point me in the right direction?

The e-Book I am trying to write will need to have the ability to add hyper links so it jumps from one part of the book to the other by clicking the link, also a table of contents also clickable.

Thank you..

MS just released a new free Ebook for Windows 8, this one aimed at IT pro's rather than "dummies".

Free ebook: Introducing Windows 8: An Overview for IT Professionals (Final Edition) - Microsoft Press - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

Get it while it's hot.

A:Free Ebook (new!)


I picked that up a couple weeks ago from TechNet! I highly recommend that folks get these free resources. In addition to being very good product documentation, these books provide insight into what Microsoft is trying to accomplish with the new release. You'll get an idea what's new and how the product can be used by IT professionals.

Here's a short excerpt from the Introduction:

"This book describes these new and improved features. It focuses on IT pros, however, so we spend fewer pages talking about the new user interface and more talking about management, deployment, and security."

Note the subtle tone here: "it's not all about the new user interface ..." - I think too many of us (including yours truly) have spent too much time fixated on the new interface and less on what's really going on with Windows 8.

This is driving me crazy. My HP has Windows 7 and everytime it connects to the internet (wireless connection) Windows Live Messenger opens down in the left hand corner taskbar near the start menu. I close it, and fifteen minutes later it will open again.
I opened the options and unchecked the boxes pretaining to 'Run Windows Live Messenger when windows starts' but it still repeatedly opens. I use hotmail, but i really have no use for Messenger. The program is not listed under add/remove programs. Someone please help me turn this thing off.

A:Solved: Windows Live Messenger-TURN IT OFF TURN IT OFF!

It should be listed in Programs & Features under Windows Live Messenger or Windows Live Essentials. If you still can't find it listed then go to get.live.com and re-download the installer, reinstall it, then uninstall it.

We have recently installed a nice older program call Turnkey Ebook Store

The installation process went very well, however we tested the purchase of various e-books in our catalog and completed the transaction - we clicked on the download link, which was located in our email and downloaded the product.

We were then redirected to our download page.

When we completed downloading the product which was enclosed in a zip file, there was nothing in the folder.

The name of the file was correct but there was nothing in it.

Can someone give us some insight to what could be happening and how to correct the situation.

A:Ipod and Ebook causes a BSOD

Are you sure that you installed the 64 bit version of iTunes on your system? Installing the 32 bit version on a 64 bit system will result in similar symptoms (due to the drivers for accessing the iPod).

The memory dump blames CBUFS.sys - which I can't find much info on. I suspect it's a file system driver for your iPod, but can't be sure. I'm going to try looking into the iTunes installer.

So, I tried installing it on my system. Interestingly, it installs to Program Files (x86) - even though I'm using the 64 bit version. No luck tho, it didn't install that file on my system.

I'd suggest that you search your system (most likely in C:\Windows\System32\drivers) for the cbufs.sys file. Once you locate it, right click on it and select "Properties". Then check the Details tab for information on the manufacturer. Once you figure out what program/device that it belongs to - you can update that program/driver to see if that fixes it. Please post back if you're having difficulties.

Also, please update these older drivers so that they don't cause compatibility issues with the new OS:

AsIO.sys Mon Dec 17 04:11:49 2007
ASACPI.sys Sun Mar 27 22:30:36 2005
In particular the 2005 version of ASACPI.sys is known to cause BSOD's in some systems - please visit the Asus support website and download the Win7 version of the Asus AISuite utility, or the Asus PCProbe utility.

Here's the analysis of the memory dump:

Recently my computer tends to be using all the physical memory for some reason, causing it to run very slow and making it near impossible to use sometimes. Naturally, this is quite frustrating. A restart will fix it for an hour or two but it just shoots back up again eventually.

I have six gigs of RAM so I really shouldn't be having this problem. It doesn't make much sense when I look at the processes running on task manager either. The thing using up the most memory is Firefox at 500,000 K, then Winamp at 181,000 K and everything below that not very much at all. It just doesn't add up to six gigs, not even close, yet Task Manager tells me it's at 98-100% physical memory usage.

I don't think it's a virus/malware issue since I run frequent scans with Avast and Spybot and they aren't coming up with anything.

My computer specs on my profile are up to date so you can use those for information about my computer. It has only started doing this recently though, past three weeks or so, and I've made no recent hardware changes in that time. If there's anything else you need, just ask. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
