Signature 01 auto failover

Q: Signature 01 auto failover

Hello,
I'm new to the forum. However, I really need help on my Vista OS on an HP desktop PC. I am getting the following reports:
1. "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically".

2. "Problem signature - 01 Auto Failover"

I have read some of the responses to this problem and have 2 problems. First, I am a novice when it come to this sort of thing, and next, my PC did NOT come with a disc.

Question: Obviously, Vista is Trash ie, most of the responses, and so is 7. However, since 7 seems to be the only option to upgrade to, how do I do that after purchasing a 7 upgrade disk, if I can even do it???

By the way, a common problem I find in your threads is the downloading of photos, which is the last thing I did before my PC crashed.

Also, will I lose "My Documents" if I can an upgrade???

If ANYONE would be so kind as to offer me some advice (in NOVICE Terms Please , I would greatly appreciate it.

Mikey

you create a recovery DVD, you may be able to boot to recovery options
Create Recovery DVD

The Vista recovery disk is used to boot Vista when it won't boot - to run Startup Repair, System Restore, access a Command Line, Recover using a Vista Backup Image, etc.
System Recovery Options

If Vista will not start now, boot the Recovery CD to run Startup Repair which automates System Restore as well as numerous other tests including System File Checker which can repair system files which are not corrupted beyond repair.

If Vista still will not start, try booting into Safe Mode to run sfc /scannow to repair System files.

Below is a bulletin distributed by MS to explain the start up procedure when Windows will not boot.
Startup Repair. Startup Repair is a Windows recovery tool that can fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files, that might prevent Windows from starting. Startup Repair is located on the System Recovery Options menu, which is on the Windows Vista installation disc. If your computer has preinstalled recovery options, it might also be stored on your computer's hard disk. For more information, see Startup Repair: frequently asked questions and What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista? If your computer does not include Startup Repair, your computer manufacturer might have customized or replaced the tool. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.Change restart settings in safe mode. If your computer is stuck in a loop where Windows fails, attempts to restart, and then fails again repeatedly, restart your computer in safe mode and select the Disable automatic restart on system failure checkbox. For more information, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).Reinstall. If no other options have solved the problem, and you are sure that your computer's hardware is functioning normally, you might need to reinstall Windows. A custom (clean) installation of Windows will permanently delete all of the files on your computer and reinstall Windows, so only use this option if all other recovery options have been unsuccessful. After the installation, you will need to reinstall your programs and restore your files from backup copies. For more information, see Installing and reinstalling Windows**.Dont fret, if you give up you can backup your documents
Use Ubuntu Live CD to Backup Files from Your Dead Windows Computer - How-To Geek
and then reinstall

You will get your documents
You can also do an upgrade install
or repair install with the DVD.

Try to boot in safe mode and then do a system restore

If you try all and still have problems, you can back up your documents with ubuntu.

Laptop is acting strangely as of late. I was playing a game and had a GPU driver crash, which subsequently locked up my system. After having to force power it down I got stuck in the startup repair loop. I tried startup repair at least 10x, and it would always say it couldn't correct the problem. On every attempt it came back as a "Bad Driver" as the issue. On my last attempt to boot it finally went through to windows, but things are randomly crashing. I checked AVG, which says resident shield isn't active and it cannot turn itself on. I tried to run several scans and they all fail automatically saying that they were terminated. I ran Malwarebytes and it did not find anything. I would appreciate any help that I could receive.

Hi,
Early last month I upgraded my anti malware software and found that 1) the first scan took about 2 days and 2) the auto updates and auto updates features weren't working. I had also noticed that it was sometimes impossible to open my browser without first rebooting. I opened a ticket with the vendor's support service and went through about three weeks of diagnosis and cleanup activities.

Combofix found and quarantined, what I believe was a trojan (maybe a root kit - I'm a bit shaky on the terminology). The problems persisted and the vendor seemed to have given up on me. I got no more responses from the guy working on my ticket. I uninstalled the software and installed another vendor's product and am a week or so into a month's free trial. The scan is much quicker but I still have to manually update signatures.

I'm pretty sure I'm still infected. For example, I've spent that last couple of days trying to run GMER. I aborted the first scan because it was running so slowly. GMER froze when I tried to save another scan. The last two scans I left running: one overnight the other while I was out doing errands. Both ended in a reboot of my machine. This is the Microsoft error message:

My friend brought a replacement laptop. I am helping to setup the new laptop. She has the the original MS Office 2003 for Small Office CDs and has bought the MS Office 2007 Home and Student. I loaded the Outlook and Publisher 2003 to the Acer, went to MS and loaded SP3, then loaded Office 2007 Home and Student (which does not have Outlook or Publisher). Here are my problems:

1. Autocorrect and auto detection of language (so that Outlook will use the correct dictionary) are not working: I see that autocorrect is a problem with SP3 and since my Outlook and Word are different version, I don't have an option to use Word as an editor. So, I downloaded HotFix 945430. There is no instruction on how to run the Hotfix, so, I tried both options on the Hotfix: finding and fixing the Office install and installing Office. I still have the same 2 problems. So, I uninstall Office 2003 and 2007 using the remove program tool in the Control Panel, then reinstall Office 2003 (Word and Publisher only) and installed Office 2007 Home and Student edition. The problems still persist. Is this a problem because the laptop has Outlook 2003 and Word 2007?

2. Before uninstalling Office 2003 and 2007, I had added a signature to Outlook. The signature has a small bmp and some text. At first, the bmp was not showing up on the email (as if the image was missing, showed just a box and the name) and the signature had double spaces.

Hello,
I have been using my Inspiron 13 5378 since December 2016. After working normally for few days my screen stopped auto-rotating. I sent my laptop back to Dell for repair and received it after a month in April. Very frustrating thing.
When I received the repaired laptop the auto orientation was working fine but it stopped working again after a couple of days.
I don't know what is triggering this but I have tried myriad of solutions available online including reinstalling chipset and sensor drivers, disabling and re-enabling sensors in device manager, setting sensor services to start automatically and much more.
But still, the auto-rotate feature is not working.
I don't want to send my laptop back to dell again for another month, please suggest any solution if you know it.

There may be a way to script something to work like you want, but the script would be a lot more complicated than simply "play x". It will also need to check to see if the alarm has cleared and then stop playback. But it will largely depend on what exactly you are doing (or trying to do) as you haven't provided near enough details for anyone to help.

hi everyone,how can i setup automatic fail over for this diagram.A and B are different ISP suppliers and we dont have to access for edit router configuration.both are leased lines.thank your very much for your support.
 

A:automatic failover

Many business class router/firewalls have feature called SLA where you can program a secondary Internet circuit as a backup to the primary. The router/firewall will do a continuous health check on the primary circuit to a designated site you choose on the Internet. If there is anything that drops under the threshold you set, the router/firewall will roll over the Internet connections over to the secondary circuit.

I'm not sure if the SMB router/firewalls which advertise themselves as dual WAN ports can operate in this manner. I do know their basic operation is to do a round robin or if link status for the primary fails will roll over to the secondary WAN port.

I am new to all of this, I have been thrust into a situation where I need to figure this out.

We have a 2800 connected to a microwave transceiver (our main uber fast connection) and a T1 via ADC Kentrox Data Smart Max T1 (our backup connection)

This is what I walked in to.

What we/I would like to do:
-continue using the MW as our main connection
-use the T1 as an automatic failover if the MW fails due to weather or other event.
-if possible, I would like to take the T1 directly to the Cisco 2800 bypassing other external equipment.

I believe we intend to drop our current provider.

Additional complication:
We are hosting our own website and customer services via the web via this connection, if failover occurs how can we assure that traffic still finds its way to us?

With all of that said, what do we need to do?

I know this is a huge issue and I hope I can look to this forum for guidance on these issues.

Hi,

We have a fairly unstable Internet connection through Dodo (Please no quips about peanuts and monkeys, I know Dodo is a terrible ISP). They, and Telstra have refused to fix the problems, preferring instead to blame my equipment, despite the fact that I have replaced every part of the network many times over. Line noise on the connection is terrible, and causes anything up to 30+ disconnections a day, from anywhere between 10 seconds to 90 minutes.

As my sons play a lot of online gaming, disconnections not only kill the game, but also get them demoted on the servers.

So, they have a 3G mobile phone with 1.5GB data allowance per month.

But we are having problems finding any software (preferably FREE), that will let us set up a fail over environment such that when the PPPoE connection fails it switches to 3G, and automatically reverts to PPPoE when that service comes back online.

Any one know of any software that meets this need?

thanks

I link my Windows home PCs (7 and some XP) to a separate file server box via a persistent network mapping. There's a separate mirroring server in place on the network too.

If one server goes down, theres an undignified scramble to remap drives so that work can recommence - but is there a quick way to have Windows 7 pick up the job of determining primary and secondary availability to speed this?

I know I could probably do something involved and complex via a virtual server and clustering but I'd prefer something simple and client-side if possible !

I have Word 2002, SP3, for Windows Office XP Pro.

My problem is I want to permanently turn OFF the autocorrect options (all of them: correct initial capitals, correct first letters of days, etc etc, autoformat, as well as auto text and auto type).

Yes, I have unchecked all the boxes in Tools > Autocorrect Options, the problem is I have to painstakingly go though all the boxes every time I open Word and uncheck them. My setups are not remembered.

I can't figure out how to make these options stay set this way.

I've tried installing the Office Resource Kit and setting a system policy (though I am the only user on this PC), but no success.

I had to rebuild my system a month ago -- before that, I never had any problems, Word seemed to remember exactly my preferred set up and saved autocorrect options etc to the normal template.

I checked the normal template and it is in Doc Settings folder where it should be.

I searched the forums and Word help but can't seem to find any advice, mainly because most people usually run these options and they only wish to modify the instances where they apply, rather than permanently disable them.

Please help! Much appreciated! Thanks!

Note the tabs. In this dialog you set your options and they are set for the Power Scheme shown. In Laptops, there are usually 2 schemes listed, one for AC powered and a separate for Battery powered.

Desktop OR AC powered Laptop, the only thing you MAY want to turn off is your Monitor.

That's a very broad piece of information. So you are saying sometimes

Hi, 
Will appreciate any help regarding this issue. 
My Gmail account is auto sending an email to all my gmail contacts without my knowledge until I saw reply posts of unsuccessful emails. Contents as such:
"Good Day.I just Uploaded a file,I would like you to view.Click Here to view. "
I too opened a similar email afew weeks back. Nothing seems wrong at first so I never really thought much about it.
Can someone help me on this? 
I have just changed my password for my Gmail. hopefully it stops the sending. but I want to know if my computer is infected or by using smartphones or tablets, will it affect the gadgets too? 
Thank you! 
 

A:Gmail auto sending to my contacts, and auto deleting a virus link

A SPAMmer does not need access to your Gmail account in order to use your email address.
 
They can use whatever SPAM-sending program they like to send out email using *-your-* email address in the Sender's field.
 
Then, if any of the email addresses they sent the email to happen to be invalid, the unsuccesful delivery messages would be returned to you simply because your email address was in the Sender's field.
 
In order to stop this, you would have to find the person using your email address and hang them by the neck until dead. ;)

I run a server at night to run a program file and every now and then it crashes and comes up CLOSE program.exe as an error ( i turnred error reporting off - still comes up though)

Anyway since i cant get rid of this error message is it possible to have a prog to auto kill this when it crashes? OR

A prog that can restart the program/ process on a crash or hang?

A:Auto restart a process or auto kill on CRASH or HANG

Have a look in the Event Viewer through the control panel-> administrative tools. Look at both "system" and "applications" . If you can determine the program that is giving the error you will want to reinstall that troublesome program.

Thanks

I would like to completely disable auto run / auto play in Windows Media Player 12 on Windows 7, and I cannot find a way to do so. I've searched the web endlessly, and there are lots of suggestions, but nothing works. I have disabled every type of auto run / auto play I can find, but if Windows Media Player is open and I insert a flash drive, CD, or DVD, whatever I'm playing is interrupted by what was inserted even if it's not media. Just a plain, blank flash drive does this.

Has anyone else been able to figure this out?

I enabled display hidden and system files, but system auto-disable its... I make it about three times, always with the same result. I don't know what causes this problem, I can't reproduce its (it isn't after reboot).

Also I have similar problem with system restore.
I disabled it, but system turned it on again.

WTF?! Does my system better know what I need?!

The "Customize this Folder ..." and "Folder and Search Options ..." and "Properties" choices don't seem to do anything. So, I have two major headaches (at the moment): 1) How do I stop Vista's constant auto-sorting of folders? If I change a file name or add a few files to a directory it automatically resorts everything! This is extremely frustrating ... especially if I make a naming mistake and don't know where to find the file! How do I stop Vista until I--and only I--decide to refresh the folder?2) How do I stop Vista from deciding (always wrongly) what "Type of folder" a directory is and forcing its own display and sort criteria on it--actually them as it decides about EVERY folder and doesn't follow MY choices!Why can't Windows do what I need it to do?!?

Does anyone know how to completely turn off auto capitalizing and auto correct in WPS Office?
I need the text to stay the way I type it, I don't want it to be "corrected".

p.s. I saw the options "Change Case", but when I choose "Sentence Case", the program returns to "Toggle Case" by default for some reason; also, tools>options>edit>auto correct doesn't contain/list all the changes that this program actually makes to the document, so I cannot uncheck them there...

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR THE HELP!

I have a nice little database that I set up to track donations of items to our organization. The primary table tracks the donor information: name, address, etc. (main form) and I have created a related table that tracks the date of donation and items donated utilizing a sub-form. Thanks to the fine help I received here I was able to relate these tables using a “Link_ID” field and it has worked nicely. (One donor could have multiple donations.)

Now, I’d like to enhance things a little bit. When I enter donor information into the main form and then go to the sub-form for the donation information, I’d like the business_name field to autofill as I start to type. Now, I know this can be done because most commercial databases have this function. Quicken is one that comes to mind. I know it has to pull this information from somewhere, I just need to know how to get it to work!

I have been unsuccessful finding any pertinent information on an “autofill” field in some sources. (I really don’t want a drop-down list box because this could potentially get too large.)

TIA.
 

A:Auto complete or Auto Fill field in Access?

Yes, well, unfortunately, in Access, the drop-down list is the only type of control that uses auto-fill, unless you want to use a text box and code (there's an example of that in the developer's handbook, but it's complicated).

No matter how big your list is, if you sort the underlying query alphabetically on company name, it will still autofill, and you can even build a not-in-list response to add new customers...

Make sure the auto-expand property of the drop-down (or combo) control is set to Yes, and you'll see that you never even have to drop down the list...

Hi Indy and welcome to the forums,

I have no experience with Outlook 2000 unfortunately but I would assume you have a setting turned off - something along the lines of 'Send e-mails automatically'.

I think it would be in Tools > Options? I suggest just hunting around in there and checking various settings

Hope this helps,

I'm troubleshooting sound driver issues and have come across something peculiar. I tried shutting off the auto driver update for windows because I do not want the specific drivers that they are going to use. In the screenshot you can see that an installation occurs even with the setting turned off. My question is, are these some default generic type audio drivers such that they will not interfere with the soundcard drivers? Is this some background type driver that will be installed regardless?

You can click on the picture to enlarge it up to enlarge it up to 1680x1050.

I'm running WinXP Pro w/ IE 6.0, SP1. I use the auto complete/auto fill-in for easy entry to common form submissions. I like it and use it a lot. What I would like to know is - What can I do about old submission? Every time I use the down arrow to select the proper entry, there's a whole bunch of older things that were entered in that frame from a lon time ago. (i.e for email, there's a listing for [email protected], that I used for a spoof). How can I remove JUST THE OLD ONES? I want to keep the cookies active and use what is my normal (80%ish) of the time entries. I looked in MS knowledgebase but it just talked about clearing history and cookies. I know that, I just want to clear SOME entries. Thanks in advance for your help on this matter.
