Q: Needed: INF file to override corrupt EDID in e93z - 10BA

Hi folks. I am working on an e93z-10BA (ThinkCentre AIO i5/500gb HDD/Touch screen). It has a corrupt EDID for the monitor/screen. It is loading the default Microsoft digital panel info and displaying at 1024x768. I know most manufacturers provide an INF file to override the monitor?s EDID information in Windows. I cannot find one for the built in panel in the e93z-10BA. Any ideas? Thanks!

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.)

Hey guys, I don't really know anything about EDID override but apparently it should fix my monitor problem that I posted earlier..My questions are : Are EDID overrides specific to monitors? Where do I get them? How do I use them? My monitor is the Acer V233H.

Thanks,

Hi guys, I'm not good in english but I hope u will understand all.

Few weeks ago, my computer monitor suddenly get 1024x768 (or something like that) resolution, and I can't set better, because this is my max resolution. Before this situation I had 1920x1080 resolution. I know I can now only set resolution of my video card. I searched for reasons, and this must be corrupted EDID, but I can't find someone with this damn monitor. I also tryed install many different versions of video driver and use few different cables, but problem is still alive.

If u have this monitor, I wan't to get copy of your EDID, or if you have other idea, I can do whatever u write

Hello!

I'm hoping someone here has some experience with monitors, HDCP and EDID.

A month back my monitor suddenly wouldn't turn on after 19,000 hours of service. Fair enough.

So, I bought a repair kit and fixed 12 capacitators - a common problem with every PSU I have come by.

That worked, and the monitor is running again - a bit yellow tint though due to the many hours.

Thats not the problem.

The problem is that I had to rewrite the EDID after the power down. Somehow it went corrupt and I rewrote it succesfully with the data from the registry.

However, now the monitor displays as "not HDCP compliant" in the NVidia settings (and I know for a fact that the monitor is HDCP compliant and showed up as such before the breakdown). The Cyberlink BD Advisor tool also reports that the monitor is not compliant.

So my questions are:Has the rewriting of the EDID (in service mode) messed up HDCP?
If EDID is connected to the problem - how do I correct the EDID?
How can a power down otherwise mess up HDCP (hardware failure)?
Is there a way to fix the issue at all?
Can someone post a link to a movie that is protected in order to check that way?
The monitor is connected to my GFX on HDMI (mini) and I already tried the DVI's and turning the monitor on/off etc. The monitor is a HP w2207h and recognized by Windows as such - original drivers installed (version 3.0.0.0).

Thanks,

Recently, I recovered data [ Word 2002, PPT 2002 & AMIPro [ *.sam ] ] files from a hard drive with corrupt blocks. Thousands of files were recovered, but many will not open.

I used Easy Recovery Pro to recover the files. I tried ERP's corrupt file repair utility for .doc & .ppt files. The initial report stated that the file had been repaired. Then, ERP informed me it was not able to repair the files.

I didn't try the .sam files because I don't have AMIPro installed on my computer.

I tried the demo of WordFIX Data Recovery. That program informed that it had been able to repair the file. But, I am skeptical because ERP also gave me the same optimistic message.

2ndly, I have thousands of files to repair.

I am seeking your opinion about a program that is generally successful repairing corrupt files. I would like to use a program that can attempt to repair 10s to 100s of files in one batch. I am not a programmer. I do not know how to write a batch file.

Hey guys,

I am trying to make a simple batch file, the idea behind it is i run the batch file and save my settings/configuration settings of my game to a folder called Backup with batch.

Here is the issues:
* The game is in program files(x86) - I wish for it to stay here.
* Cannot create a folder called "Backup" due to User Account Control(UAC) - I don't want to turn off UAC either.
* I cannot use hard-coded paths as i am making the batch for my mates too - But the game uses same configuration file-names and same sub-directories.

So my question is, is their a way i can override UAC or turn UAC off to do this batch process and then re-enable UAC?

Can someone post some ideas? Here is the current batch:

Code:
@echo off

color 34

Echo This will make a backup of all the cfg files
Echo in a Backup directory to the root of the game:
@pause
MD "Backup/etpro"
MD "Backup/etmain"
MD "Backup/etpub"
XCOPY "etmain\*.cfg" "Backup\etmain"
XCOPY "etpro\*.cfg" "Backup\etpro"
XCOPY "etpub\*.cfg" "Backup\etpub"
Cheers for the help.

" The File is possibly corrupt. The file header checksum doses not match the

My search here kept coming up w/"IE cannot display this page...", so I thought I would start a new entry and hope somebody might have something to offer by the time I get home to look at it.

FWIW, this is a laptop on a wifi network. AVG on another computer on this network started giving a virus alert yesterday, (mentioning smitfraud), AVG scan found nothing, Panda online scan found nothing, and Spybot found nothing. That was my project for this weekend, but I guess it goes onto the back burner now. I do not know if there is a relationship between these two issues.

Any help anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Hello my new bestest friends. I need help ! (as does everyone who comes here) My computer has been running like a bag of you know what for about 3 weeks. IE became corrupt and will not start even after uninstalling and re installing Versions 6 & 7. However this is not the problem as I am currently using safari and finding it great. The problem lies with my computer and it's sluggishness, ever since IE became corrupt my computer seems to have slowed. I am getting occasional Internal memory (blue dos screen) errors and several other little glitches like windows XP's search program will not close after I perform a file search. I have performed several Virus & spyware checks such as AVG and Spyware Doctor also several registry progs like registry Booster.

AVG comes up clean, however Spyware Doctor and Registry Booster both show a lot of Registry errors inluding heaps of lnk file and url files. I removed most of these the first time around but discovered it to have deleted all my shortcuts and bookmarks that I much needed (well not so much the shortcuts) It did not remove the actual .exe files but was a major hassle as my dektop shortcuts where wiped.

I want to wipe out my hard drive. But I have all kinds of music on it but nowhere to back it up to since I have 15GB of music.
So if I put all of those songs into a zip file and then changed the zip file to a text document, because the zip file would be 15Gb but a text document would be 800KB. So I would be able to email the text document to myself and when I reinstall my OS I can download it from my email and then rename it to .zip and extract them all.
Would this work?
If I did it to videos too would that work as well?

A:[SOLVED] If I make a zip file and change it to a text file would that corrupt its con

There is no way a 15gb zip file be turned to 800kb of data. Plus corruption might occur. Best solution is to purchase a external hard drive External Hard Drives - Newegg.com which is inexpensive you can get one from around 80 bucks. Backup all your music on that as is as is just by copying and pasting it to the external hard drive.

I have a Toshiba running Windows 7. The computer was having a lot of problems with opening files, getting on the internet, etc. It would boot up but then wouldn't do anything else. I have the Toshiba recovery media CDs which I have used in the past when the computer got a virus. I tried to use them again. This time it went through the process on CD1 but after pressing finish, it now gives an error when trying to boot.

The file may be corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computer checksum.

I tried taking the CD out and booting up and got the same error. I tried putting the CD back in and redoing it but still get the same error. Are there any suggestions?

Hi i will try describe the problem im having. Computers   -   Elitedesk 8300    Monitor          -  Elitedisplay E231  connected via Display port  Have 60 pc's all the same configuration with this error. After putting a new windows 7 image on these machines, after they go into standby, when woken back up they dont detect the correct screen, load up a generic monitor insted of the Elite display, then rather than the 1920x1080 display they have a res of 640x480. I was told this problem happened before but it went away. This to me appears as an edid error. This is also an inconsistant fault, happens on all machines but not all the time. Have updated all drivers to latest. have updated to latest bios. I am running the same windows 7 image on hundreds of other machines with out any problems. It appears only to be a problem when the 8300 is connected to the e231 display. If i turn the display off, then back on the pc detects the screen correctly and sets the resolution. Anyone have any advice on how i could trouble shoot this?

I have a z240 with a i5-6500 CPU on my desk that refuses to recognize the attached monitor properly.  In the Xorg.0.log file there is no mention of EDID data.  The result is that the HD display connected is set to 1024x768 rather than 1920x1080. I'm running Debian 8.5.0 and have updated the system BIOS to the latest: N51 Ver. 01.24.  I've also built the latest driver available from Intel for linux:         LoadModule: "intel"         Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so         Module intel: vendor="X.Org Foundation"            compiled for 1.16.4, module version = 2.99.917            Module class: X.Org Video Driver            ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 18.0 Using an old PCIe x1 video card I have let me connect all of the ports on the monitors (HDMI, DVI and VGA) and Debian correctly set the resolution each time and Xorg.0.log showed all of the expected EDID data. A different z230 system here is working fine using the onboard video. Since I need to have up to 3 RAID adapters in the system at once I can't just add a different video card. I have _not_ tried Windows to see if it works there though I am going to try to do that on Friday. I...

Hi, recently I've got a new monitor which best displays at 1920x1200, but the accursed EDID limits that to 1440x900. Luckily, I was able to override that with ATI CCC, but that only works on VGA. Switching to the better DVI limits the resolution back to 1440x900. Making it bigger via Windows Display Properties only made everything worse, the screen does not display everything and I have to move my mouse to move the view.
I have tried mamny times uninstalling/reinstalling video card drivers, even old ones on the disc, but that did not work. Even unistalling/reinstalling the monitor on Device Manager did nothing.
Please help.

I know too little about computers, maybe thats why I am going through this tragedy ... Need urgent help !

I have a Sony VAIO laptop (Model: VPCEB32EN) which had Windows 7 installed. Recently I installed UBUNTU (alongside Win 7) so that I could heal the laptop of virus infections. Till that point everything was OK. Then the fault in my stars played out and I became a member of idiotland. What happened is I tried installing Linux Mint too alongside the previous two OS's, and it stopped installing midway due to some error.

Maybe then the grub or bootloader or MBR or whatever got deleted or corrupted by that divine process.

Everything was gone and my computer would not boot.

I tried installing Windows again from the Recovery Disk but to no avail. So I installed UBUNTU. That worked. I am going to name my son UBUNTU to honor this awesome OS.

Now, the softwares that I actually work on have only the Windows version.

Can anybody please guide me how to install Win7 again on my beautiful laptop?

NB: I am more joer than the regular Joe. Step by step instruction would be heartily appreciated.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

For the next time, please do not post your issue across four different forums at once. It only causes confusion, conflicts between people, and can even waste people's time. Your exact post can be found on at least four other forums word for word.

It sounds to me that you wrote over your Windows 7 operating system. Can you see the Windows 7 OS in Ubuntu?

How did you go about installing both Ubuntu and Linux Mint?

Hi all, I hope someone can help me solve this. I feel as if I've tried EVERYTHING.

Briefly-I've picked up some sort of virus/malware from a dodgy webpage. I believe it went straight into my Limewire downloaded files folder - possibly to spread?? - because I can't access that folder. I haven't used limewire for a couple of weeks, this file has definitely came from a dodgy, p0rn pop-up filled webpage I got stuck on.

When I try to open the folder, windows explorer crashes. When I hover the mouse over the folder, instead of displaying the folder properties (like "500MB" for example), windows explorer crashes ("Windows encountered a problem and needs to close etc). I have tried accessing the folder thru start>run>cmd. When I try to 'dir', it just closes the window. The same happens if I try to delete the folder through CMD. When scanning with Ad-aware, Norton, and SpywareSearch&Destroy, the programs crash when the scanning reaches this folder. I have also tried doing all of the above in safe mode, that also doesn't work. So I can't even access the folder to see what kind of corrupt file is in there. When I tried scanning with the windows malicious software removal tool, it displayed the windows "data execution prevention" error message.

I have now tried Windows Defender and this lets me complete a scan of the folder - but it says it hasn't detected anything malicious.

I am also getting some sort of browser hijack. It started at exact... Read more

I have also noticed CCAPP.exe (looking like a Symantec Norton file) is asking for internet access thru Zonealarm with a destination IP of "85.255.155.159". I think thats the IP that is redirecting me in Internet explorer.

Possibly malware disguised as Norton? thanks

hi experts,

word 2010. the user claims to have worked on the file for a long duration and been saving regularly. came back to office and tried opening the file, wehrein user claims the file is corrupt and cant open it anymore. looking at file properties, it is only 4kb whereas the actualy file user worked on was more than 3 mb. any thing to try to fix it. have tried open and repair, tried changing the extension, searched PC for .asd and .wbk and tmp files which could have helped. tried few of the recovery tools ( recuva etc which are freeware , but dont findanything worthwhile with the tools.

have also tried looking manually in locations where there was possibility of seeing the auto recover files. user has already tried recover unsaved document option. thee is no shadow copy enabled on the machine, hence no chance of reverting to previous versions of documents.

any advice i shighly appreciated.
 

A:word file lost all data and file gone corrupt

howdy and welcome. The file could have become corrupted, especially if this cycle of saving over it has been going on for a bit. Do they have a backup of it? If not, may be time to recreate it. Try opening in wordpad or notepad, as well.

I'm sort of at my wits end with trying to solve this problem on my own, so any help would be much appreciated. Recently, I downloaded about 50 or so new songs via limewire. I have never had a problem with this before, and if a file does not play when I download it, I immediately delete it. I played my new music in itunes and had no problems. The next time I went to use my ipod however, a bunch of these songs were distorted (sorry I don't know how to explain it better...try to imagine listening to a song and then getting really loud speaker feedback, or as if the song was "skipping" and making an obnoxious noise while doing so).

The distortion is only present in selected songs from the 50 I downloaded, all of the other 3000+songs on my ipod are uneffected. I tired deleting these files off my computer and re-downloading, didn't work. I tried re-formatting the ipod, didn't work.

My next step was software that checks files for problems and repairs them, I downloaded MP3 Checker, which only found 2 bad files and I deleted them. Still the same problem with the other files.

Next I downloaded MP3Val which scanned all my music for file integrity and fixed all of the files that had any problems. Still this doesnt work.

So finally I go to the apple store and make them give me a new ipod (I have the extended warrenty).

Got the new ipod today...same problem.

So i'm left with music that plays perfect in itunes, several programs saying that I have ... Read more
