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.)

Recently, I mistakenly erased some drivers from my Averatec Series 1000N, 10.5 inch computer. Now, can not accessed my computer.
 
Can anyone please help me. I have struggled with this for manyhours.
 
The Averatec computer originally came with Windows XP. But, I upgraded to Vista. In doing so, I could not get on the internet.
 
Then, started trouble shooting and really screwed things up.
 
I can get several Windows such as BIOS and Safe Start, etc. But, just cant boot up.
 
This computer does not have a CD Drive, so can't install a disk.
 
I tried programing a Thumb drive with Rufus to try to recover, but that  failed.
 
Is my computer done for?
 
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Okay, so my gf has an AcerPower 1000 she got last christmas from her dad. In the past week, the system has been crashing. Here's the complicated part.

No BSOD, no overheating, just a simple hard shut-off. I can run the system in safe mode no problem, but after logging in the normal way, it shuts down.
I thought it was a windows problem, so I tried popping in a linux live CD.
PCLinux, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, they all crash after they reach the logon screen.
At this point, I can't tell if it's a hardware or software problem. I've googled everywhere but no luck.

Please help guys.

I'm trying to check the ink levels for my printer. For HP Deskjet 1000 J100 series. I've installed and set up the printer but don't know where the control panel or HP toolbox is. I opened the HP Deskjet icon, but the only thing that opens is a window asking if I want to install a new printer. I opened the HP Smart app, and the printer says that it's Ready, but when I click on printer settings, then print quality tools, it says "This feature is not available for your selected printer through HP smart app. To check control panel."

I've been going around in circles trying to find the control panel or toolbox. Also, I've been using the printer for a couple of years now, with no problems. So it's hooked up correctly. It's only now I decided to use the Check Printer ink function.

Maybe I need to install another driver or something. All I want to do is check printer ink levels. Please help.

Thanks, Josie

Help!

I have a Dell Inspirion E1505 I purchased in the summer of 2006. Last year, I put in a new hard drive, doubled the amount of memory, replaced the keyboard, and put in a new CD/DVD drive. It's currently running XP.

Lately, especially with the wireless, my computer has been acting funny. Slow, very slow to open up new tabs in Internet Explorer. The other day it was SO slow I decided to restart it and see if that helped. It started up fine, but when I tried pressing "Start" to open back up Internet Explorer it was frozen. At this point I decided to reboot and run a diagnostic. This is what I got:

DST Short Status Test
Test results: Fail
Error code 1000-0146
Message: Unit0: IDE status failed
Status byte=64 Control code=1
Message=no additional sense information

Test results: Fail
Error code: 1000-0141
Message: no drive detected
I haven't done anything since I got that result (as in, my computer is still on and on this diagnostics page)

What should I do?

Looks like the hard drive has failed again, you could however remove and reinsert the drive to see if that gets the drive detected again, most likely a failed hard drive.

Suddenly my dell latitude d620 stopped working. Message when I boot the laptop is "Start DST Short Test - no hard drive detected - error 1000-0141".

I removed the hard drive (hitachigst travelstar) and placed another one from another laptop. The laptop worked well. I placed the 1st hard drive in the 2nd laptop. I got the same error as above.

So is something wrong with the hard drive???

When I shake it gently, I can hear a small part moving inside. This doesnt happen in the 2nd hard drive. So is something broken too?

Hi guys (thanks for reading this post!)

my husband bought a laptop for xmas about 2 years, maybe 3 ago, from Currys so I doubt it's still under waranty.

Anyways, here's the problem

We were using it normall and then the next day we tried to start the laptop:
pushed the power, starts with that normal booting writing, then it goes like it's about to load Vista, but this mouse pointer a bit larger then normal appears and the screen goes to Tech (now I read that this is like a repair thing that was pre installed cause the laptop was bought from Currys and I imagine the have a deal with this company to fix any problems)

I don't mind installing a new OS like Windows7 but I'd like to be able to save the 'pictures and documents' in the laptop if at all possible. I'm not that good with pc so dont go all technical on me... (I use a mac myself, never had problems...)
anyways it come with this screen and gives you a few options, and tried all of them, says the pc had come errors or something and to try to reinstall but the Vista came alrady installed on the laptop....

Let me know if you know how to remove this techguys or how to save the info on the laptop so I can just clean wipe and reinstall...

I you want, I can try taking pics and posting them... and i will get the specs in a sec...

A:T Series Emachine wont start

There are 27 models of eMachines built since 2004 that suffer motherboard failure, due to defective manufacturing processes in Korea and Singapore. The failed motherboard causes the power supply to short out... ruining both. The replacement is $159.95 for the motherboard and $65 for the power supply, and both are out of stock at eMachines.
Which model do you have, and how long have you had it.
The memory, modem, hard drive, cpu, cpu fan, and optical drives remain good... if you can find another motherboard that can use the memory and cpu.

Hi, Wasn't sure where to post this but hopefully somebody will pick this up. I bought an Aspire F series (The unit seems to state that it is both an F15 and an F5) just over a year ago - brand new. Its been working like a dream up to now, I've even only ever used it sparingly.  Went to boot it up tonight after using it last week and it won't boot. I've checked the power supply (there is no LED light on it anyway so its tough to tell if its working in the best of cases). I've also changed the fuse on the power supply - but still no joy. I've tried the trick with the paper-clip into the battery pin-hole at the back of the unit, that doesn't seem to have worked. At the moment I am left with a laptop which won't power up after only 13 months from buying it brand new! Can anybody help with this please? Any suggestions/help to get the unit working again would be most appreciated!! Thanks in advance. T.

A:Aspire F series will not start (Only 13 months old...

Try this too Try to remove the battery from the bottom Plug-in the AC adapter ans switch it on Or test your adapter with a screw testerPls make sure when testing, you don't touch the metallic screw You can use the tester to test your fuse as well but only with a caution Expectation:The testing of your AC adapter is to make sure that you have no breakage anywhere in the cable Your laptop should show a sign of LED light blinking  on

Hi and thanks for reading.

I have a Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch. The other day, for reasons unknown, it would start up into the auto repair process. It would "diagnose PC" then "repairing", warning that might take a long time. Well after 24 hours I figured this was a dead end.

I have been through a crazy number of troubleshooting steps
--couldn't get into any F8 or Shift=F8 action
--Samsung's Restore mode crashed (F4)
--Made a recovery USB and figured out the magical BIOS steps that would actually allow me to use it after much trial and error)

The recovery process has yielded no joy.
--System Restore crashed
--Automatic Repair was never ending
--System Refresh said the drive was locked

So I started using DOS commands. Chkdsk seems to be taking forever to accomplish very little. Please see the screenshot:

Should I let it continue with chkdsk /f /r /x?

How old is the machine? Do you still have OEM support on it? Call them. Also, possibly arrange an RMA on the machine if you have time left.

Windows rebooted as always and the install was complete. I always run the Tour Windows so I can see how the graphics look and stuff on a new install.
All was fine.

This has done the same thing to two of the four mobos.
I let the BIOS reset itself to default settings at POST both times.
The only problem I had at POST was two short beeps as the time and date were not set correctly. I set that in the OS after the OS install.
Does anyone have any idea as to what I did wrong?
Did I destroy the Mobos? puke:
I cleared CMOS and reset the jumper, but I probably just erased the time again doing that, but it did no good eather.
I am truely stumped. Tried another power supply and memory to no avail.

Current Problem: System fails boot in Windows 7 following series of scans and tools ran.
 
Problems began after running Combofix
 
Prior to my running of Combofix the system was very slow, always high memory and cpu use (much due to only 2 gig memory and number of programs running).  I also had occasions where when writing email the characters would disappear after being typed in and continue to delete text.  Also the system was set up with the c: drive ssd as the operating system only, and additional partitions/drive as program and data drives.  Over the last several months those additional program and data drives would power down and sleep during use and have to wake up quite often. I thought was unusual behavior.
 
History of bleeping computer support from Trojans,Viruses.  (see postings) Have been referred to this area for help
 
 
Ran ComboFix then sought help from Bleeping
 
I ran combo fix before doing my research -  following which I could not open explorer, kaspersky, control panel etc.  I am using Chrome browser on Windows 7.  When the combofix ran it did indicate that it set a restore point.
 
At this point the computer currently was still booting fully fine into win 7 not just by using safe mode.  It connects to the internet, many programs run but cannot open some dialog windows such as explorer, control panel, kaspersky to name a few.

Yesterday my dell computer would not come on. When I hit the power button the keyboard would light up but the screen would not start. The computer was completely charged and the power cord works with no problems. It does not have a battery pack so I let the battery completely drain overnight. When I tried to turn the computer on again after 3 attempts of holding down the power button it finally rebooted. While my computer is working now I am concerned that this may happen again and that next time my computer will not start at all. Any suggestions or recommendations as to what could have caused this problem and how to prevent it from happening again. I completely love my touchscreen dell and would hate for it not to work!

A:Laptop (dell inspiron 15-7000 series-7537) wont start

It could have simply been a program or utility hanging the system.  Holding down the power button for a couple minutes should have fully shut down the system allowing you to boot, but baring that, you either have to remove the battery or wait until it is fully discharged.
I do suggest running diagnostics just to make sure that this isn't and indicator of possible hardware failure.
Please check here for more information on how to run diagnostics.  Please let me know what you find out.

A test program to quantify the issue reveals that keys closer than 23ms are scrambled. Many people collaborated over many machines to provide data. To easily see the problem, press "asdf" simultaneously, and note that "fdsa" will appear. It's much easier to type fdsa really fast than to type asdf fast, on a Thinkpad keyboard. We hope that this can be fixed because the E-series does not experience this issue. The trackpoint also has poor sampling behavior, with a 7ms internal sampling rate and a 16ms external sampling rate. This causes timepoints to be staggered in an uneven 10-17-17 manner. All T-series, X-series keyboards are affected, both Windows and Linux. That includes the 7-row keyboards.E-series is not affected.Nobody has yet submitted data for E/A485 either pre-patch or post-patch. We are interested in testers.External USB keyboards and mice not affected.Laptops from other manufacturers (Dell) not affected. Technical summary of the issue:https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/9j70v6/thinkpad_keyboard_firmware_worse_than_anyone/ Affected:T460s on windows and T480s on ubuntuT470T530T530 (2)X1Carbon Gen6Retro T25X220X250, X61, X220 Not affected:Dell PrecisionDell OEM USB keyboardLogitech keyboardE470E450...

I have a set of HP Z210 Workstations with E3-1245-V2 Xeon Cpu's, SSD boot drives and varying sizes of memory from 8-16GB 1600Mghz DDR3 ECC. We use Windows 8 Enterprise for these machines, with Hyper-V enabled.
We get regular driver failures from the 2 sets of USB controllers on the machines (Mainly and issue for the KB & Mouse) that can only be resolved with a full power down (not restart) and a power up. This happens at least once every 1-3 days per machine.
I had gone through the HP support, but they have advised this isn't an issue on their side, and I had agreed all along. I was just hoping to get some traction by notifying them. Anyway, after a lengthy trouble shooting session, we found that once Hyper-V
was enabled, the fault arose.
As it was an Intel chip, they I asked them. They advised that on Windows 8, the drivers are supplied via windows update and that it was not their issue.
So, how can I get this resolved? Not through HP or Intel, surely through MS? Maybe not. Disabling Hyper-V is not desired as I the teams with these PC's are developers and require local visualization. Also, we have templates ready for Hyper-V, I don't really
want to remove Hyper-V and use Virtual box or VMWare workstation. but I am at wits end with the fault and lack of help from the vendors.
Please help.

A:Hyper-V causes Intel(R) Series/C200 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller driver to fail

I have found a work around for this fault with the USB failure - ENSURE YOU POWER  THE MACHINE OFF - DO NOT RESTART.
Its almost like the restart doesn't initialise the device correct, thus causing a failure.

2 years ago I decided against grabbing a Thinkpad and instead went for an Asus ultrabook for the sake of a better screen. I now deeply regret this decision and desire a more durable machine.Onto the main topic, is the added cost of the T series worth it, I'd love the larger battery but other than that I can't see anything else on a surface level to differentiate the machines.For reference I'm looking at the T480 and E480.Thanks to all replies in advance.

All,
 
With the new year, we start a fresh discussion for members to share their order and fulfillment experiences.
 
We are retiring the 2014 thread    Anyone having an active discussion there can find it here.
 
The 2012-2013 tread  can be found here . 
 
 
Here are some common points of frequent discussion:
 

How to get a system fast: Buy an in-stock standard configuration from Lenovo or a Lenovo Partner in your area. Customized systems take longer.
Avoid Credit Holds - ensure that BOTH your bill to and ship to addresses are listed with your CC bank before ordering
Lenovo will not bill your card until order ships - an authorization charge hold to check for available balance may show up when order is first placed.
Estimated ship dates are based on default lead time and can vary from what was displayed on website.
In the US and Canada, Lenovo utilizes UPS for new product shipments
Orders may ship before the Estimated Ship Date
Orders may enter through Alaska and pass through Louisville, KY before traveling on to final address
Cancellation requests may take up to 2 days to process
Requests to change configuration or other aspects of the order may require the order to be rebooked.
Lenovo does not accept payment via international credit cards, except AMEX.

We hope you enjoy your new ThinkPad system when it arrives!

I know it's been posted a s#!+load of times, but I figured I'd go ahead and get something straightforward- all the other posts have been in jungle English, and haven't included the proviso I'm looking for.

Anyways, my situation is that I bought my X1900GT from Newegg around Christmastime, as a present to my ainsel (ownself, for those not familiar). I've been getting kind of disappointed in it recently: It underperforms and often crashes on STALKER:Shadow of Chernobyl and some more modern games akin to it. It also runs hot as Hades.

I'm in the market for a new card. I'd like to go DX10, but the late-production DX9's (7900 series) seem to outperform a lot of the more affordable DX10 offerings (8600 series), especially at higher resolutions, due to the 128-to-256 bit difference. I could splurge and go for an 8800, I suppose, but it would be a hit to the wallet and I'd have to postpone :cough: "Aruban Getaway 2008".

So: I don't want to pass up on the new line of DX10-only Games for Windows (Age of Conan, Crysis, etc.) that have been hyped to all hell just because I stuck with price and performance instead of currency and novelty. I need some help deciding. Then again, I could always wait until DX10 becomes the vogue and buy a cheaper, but better card then.
 

A:Price v. Performance in 7-Series + 8-Series: Advice Needed

Keep what you got and see what's comming next. I have a 8600GT as a stopgap until something better comes out. There has been talk of a Nvidia 256bit card to fill the gap between the 8600's and 8800's. I can't fit a 8800 in my case, if I could I would just get the 8800GTS 320mb now. If I were you, wait for the game to upgrade instead of upgrading and waiting for the game. Your X1900GT is no slouch either.

Hey,
I want to invest in a SDD to replace my dying westgate harddrive. I've set my mind on Corsair but I want to know the difference between the eXtreme series and the Performance series (http://www.corsair.com/products/ssd_home.aspx). According to the website, X SDDs reads a little bit faster, but the P series writes a little bit faster. The only other thing is that the P series is around £100 cheaper!

So is the X series worth the extra £100?

Thanks.

Hi I have some Toshiba Tecra M10 series but for some reason the laptop no longer works with a battery attached and just get flashing light on the laptop. It works fine with power but won't swatch on at all with a fully charge battery, I have tried many and it's not the battery. I have taken the laptop apart but can?t find anything that is wrong. So it must be the battery and or charge circuit, resisters, gone on the M10.

Anyway I was looking at a motherboard replacement. On looking about it appears that Toshiba released a M10 and a A10 series. They both look about the same to me with the same fittings but to be sure, can anyone tell me if a A10 motherboard, is the same as the M10 motherboard?

Maybe someone who works with these day in day out hopefully will know. Just don?t want to buy and A10 if it?s not compatible with M10 case and fittings.

I'm hoping to get some info from anyone that has some good stats on these cards.. I've been outa town for 4 days and wasn't near my freind (MY PC) over the release of the New GTX 200 cards.. so sadly I didn't get to see all the info and the Benchmarks for it.. Other than Kingpin's Crazy Vantage Score.. Other than that I just got home and I'm wanting to get the Scoop on these cards. I've been reading a little tonight tho.

Also I'm hoping for some info about the new ATI 4870 and 4850, they are looking VERY nice, and looks like ATI might have finally made something that can actually compete with Nvidia this time around.. (Nvidia's had the Enthusiasts Market for a good Year and a half or so IMO) but I've read only a little about them, from what I've seen they look good but if anyone has some info or links to Info about them, then please share. I kno most the ATI 4000 benchmarks that are out now are not completely trustworth cuz the cards aren't officially here yet. But please post some links and info if you can..

Thanks.

Also What should I do. Buy a cheap or Cheaper used 8800 GTS 640 and SLI them.. or sell mine and SLI 2 8800 GT (G92)'s after price drop becuase of the new series.. or should I try and hold out and get a 260, or should I get a 4870...??

ATI looks good, and now I'm in a Fickle as what I should do, I knew what I needed to do until I read about there new release comin.. now I'm shattered and need to wait for more info.. (I take in a lot before I buy things) li... Read more

A:GTX 200 Series vs ATI 4000 Series...

If you want 8800GT's, the prices have dropped to about $150 average on newegg which is great considering i got mine for $250. Personally, I'm against SLI, but if you're for it and would have to make a purchase now, go with 2 8800GTS g92 as they're averaging about <$200 (MSI's 8800GTS is on newegg for $177) and they provide some performance over the 8800GT. Since the 9800GTX is basically the same performance as the 8800GTS but more expensive, then forget that.

If you can wait a while to make a purchase, I've heard that the newer 9800GTX+ will have higher stock clocks that will deliver better performance with its newer drivers too, and this card comes out in mid-July. It's supposed to be priced around $230 and it's chip is built on 55nm process. This card sounds attractive, but we'll have to wait for solid reviews of the card first.

ATI... I don't like them, so I'm sorry but I can't tell you anything about them.
