E-mail Malfunction

Q: E-mail Malfunction

I'm getting the errror messages pictured in the screen shots below (also incliding shot of Windows Version). The e-mail sticks on "Authorizing". I am able to log on to comcast.net and get my mail that way but cannot receive on my regular e-mail. I'm using Windows Mail on Vista 32 bit. Any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: E-mail Malfunction

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.)

Hello Fred44,
I had issues with my comcast e-mail and had to initiate live chat and have them fix me up. They gave me the settings to put in to get mine working.
So, i am thinking this would be easiest way to resolve your issue.

2 days ago my windows mailbox could not receive or send mail. So I called tech support from at&t. After some adjustments I was able to resceive and send mail. BUT...all of a sudden I had an 30,000 incoming messages from the past 3 yrs. I thought that I had permanently erased those messages long ago. So I deleted the 30,000 messages. But they wont go away and keep flooding my mailbox over and over again. Now I cannot use my windows mailbox at all. How can I resolve this? Thankyou Dave
 

A:windows mail malfunction/please help

its a big mess but its a matter of cleaning up really is all.
1st - are you able to send & receive mail with no problem?
if yes, then start deleting all that old mail. i dont think theres an easy way to go about it.
afterwards in your windows mail. go to ....
> Tools > Accounts > Select the appropriate one at a time > Properties > Advanced ....
Here you have a few options.
You can select either ...
• " Remove from the server after ? Days "
• " Remove from server when deleted from 'Deleted items' "
Hopefully this helps.
anothet thing you can do is, if possible, go online and log into your email account from the providers site.
Delete all the old messages from there too.

I recently purchased an HP ProBook 450 G3. I am using two passport compact 1 TB drives with my laptop's two USB 3.0 ports. In normal use there is no problem. However, when I copy a lot of data from one to the other (or from one to the laptop's internal drive) the drives keep disconnecting. I know this because first I will get a copying error saying either the source or the destination is missing. Then I will hear the "chime" that Windows makes when a USB device connects or disconnects. Then the autoplay window for the Passport drive will appear. It seems that it spontaneously disconnects and then reconnects. I can continue using it for a time afterward, but it always spontaneously disconnects at some point, always when I am doing large data transfers.

I wondered if I have a poor physical connection---the USB plugs seem a bit loose. I checked if there is any vibration or movement that could break the connection, but so far there is no evidence that anything is moving. The disconnection always happens when a lot of data is being transferred, while the drives are sitting completely still.

Any ideas how to debug this?

A:Hard drive malfunction? USB port malfunction? Or just normal?

This is a hard situation to diagnose from a distance IMO. "Loose" is somewhat subjective, and barring serious abuse the only kinds of usb connectors & ports I've ever seen fail mechanically are mini and micro USB2 types.

I'd be inclined to suspect the drives first, especially if they are from the same family and were produced around the same time (the "bad batch" phenomenon). Have you tried to reproduce the problem on other machines, or with different drives on your machine?

Hello,

I'm looking to have every e-mail that reaches my old @aol.com e-mail account automatically forwarded to my new @aol.com e-mail account. I'd like it to be forwarded automatically, without delay, so that as soon as the e-mail hits my old account, a copy of it is then also immediately and automatically forwarded to my new @aol.com account. Can that be set up somehow?

Thanks

A:I'm looking to have every e-mail that reaches my old @aol.com e-mail automatically forwarded to my new @aol.com e-mail.

Wow, haven't logged into AOL in a while... heh.

Anyway, couldn't find anything on their webmail gui that allows for forwarding.

So, barring help from them, the only other suggestion is to use something like gmail to handle what you're trying to do here. It would go along the lines of, setup a gmail account, use it to download your AOL mail, then use its filters to forward to the new AOL account.

But that begs the question, why don't you just use Gmail?

Hi sunsandy4u and welcome to TSF,

Have you looked in the Task Manager to see if you have any Yellow marks by the usb hubs on the tree in the left pane? If so, that would indicate a driver problem.

My modem is usb and required a download into it for it to function properly. The software came with the modem. Also, try another usb port if you have one on your computer.

Hope this might help,

DEP processing is flaky. Setting /noexecute=OptOut and adding HP digital monitor to the exceptions list does not cause DEP enable for all processes.

No 'restart needed' popup is displayed....

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with XP Home Edition on it. All of my drives and devices connect externally and I access them through 3 different USB ports. A week ago I began having problems with my USB ports.

When I turn on my laptop, the devices (a mouse, keyboard and printer) initially are recognized and run well. Then I hear the noise from the comp as if I unplugged a device and my mouse, keyboard and printer are all no longer recognized by the comp. Sometimes I hear the noise as if I plugged them back in, sometimes I don't hear that noise but get an error message saying that my devices are not working properly and need to be replaced. All of my devices are in reality functioning properly. There does not seem to be consistency in when the USB ports stop functioning. During this time I am not touching the connections and at times am not even actively using the comp.

Do I have a trojan virus? or are my USB ports beginning to simply malfunction?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I can't do much with a laptop that cannot save a file to a disk or print a file. I have ad ware and spy ware removal tools (ad aware, spybot search and destroy, spyguard) as well as an updated firewall and antivirus (zone alarm suite) running on the comp. No major risks or problems have been found by these programs.
Thanks!

Hello all,

Well, to get right into it, my PSU conked out. I shut down my computer (Start > Turn Off Computer . . .), it didn't automatically turn off like it normally does. So, I tried the power switch, nothing happened. Finally, I flipped the switch on the PSU. Obviously, it was off now.
The next day, I went to turn it on, and it didn't. I tested the power switch, it was fine, so the next thing to check was the PSU. Took it to a computer service store, they tested it, it was dead. I sent it back to the company, they sent me a brand new one. And that brings us to today.

I installed the PSU in my computer, hooked it up to everything (mb, harddrive, video card, CD-Rom, fans). I pushed the power button, the PSU lit up (it has a lighted fan on it) and the fan went on, this lasted about a second, then it shut off. Well, then I went through step-by-step:
- Connected only the motherboard to the PSU - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard and the larger fan - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, and the harddrive - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, and video card - turned on, stayed on, did not beep. (apparently it was beeping because there was no video output.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, video card, and plugged everything into the back of the computer - turned on, stayed on.

A:PSU Malfunction

Although there are things like power surges and lightning strikes that could kill a PSU, there is really no reason to try to come up with a scenario for what happened. Often they just die and it can be without warning. I think you are saying that now everything works. If the new PSU suddenly quits then you may have a problem that needs to be figured out.

The fan set up looks pretty standard.

Hello everyone, first time poster, so sorry if I mess up ^^

Anyways, I just got a new laptop, specifically a Lenovo 80XS0086IX Ideapad 320-15ABR. Initially it all seemed fine, but as I used it I noticed several problems: 1) it cannot remain in sleep mode for long. After a while, it just switches off abruptly. I have tried several combinations of lid closed/open, power cord in/out, but eventually the result is always the same. 2) When powering it on after these shutdowns, the trackpad does not recognize multiple-fingers gestures, requiring a restart. 3) The disk usage frequently goes up to 100% despite no ongoing activity. 4) Sometimes, pressing the power button to power it on results in the disk starting, then abruptly stopping, then restarting again several times, before the laptop finally starts. 5) The system sometimes freezes for several seconds, even the cursor stops, only to resume any input movement later.

I have tried everything in my knowledge: I updated the BIOS, the HDD firmware, installed all Windows updates, fresh-installed Windows, but nothing seems to work (although the HDD thing apparently solved the "always 100%" problem). I ran both Windows in-built check-disk and third party programs to check for errors on the HDD, but none showed up. I'd be really glad if it was something I can fix at home, since I really need this machine to study, so sending it to be repaired/replaced back at Amazon is my very last option due to time.

First step, Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Create a restore point and name it something like "Before USB Fix". This is to bail you out if something goes wrong during the following process and makes things worse.

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG

You should have 3 boxes on the bottom in NOTEPAD.
1)Filename : fixcd.reg
2)Save as type: all files
3)Encoding: ANSI
If you do not change it from txt type to All files type, then the file will actually be fixcd.reg.txt, this won't accomplish the desired result

-------------------------- Use text after this line --------------------------------
REGEDIT4
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"

-------------------------- Use text before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.

Hi everyone, I am stuck with an issue and would like your advice.

IE.. if he presses 'p' he gets '/p'.. if he presses 'w' he gets \w.. if he.. goes on for about a dozen keys.

Thought a substance is interfering (sticking the keys), but the keys pressed are not only apart from each other they are also combinationkeys.. e.g. z= 'ctrl+a' then z

I tried...
* Antivirus scan (norton) (nothing)
* Anti malware scan (malware bytes) (nothing)
* Anti spyware scan (spybot) (nothing)
* Uninstall then reinstall Keyboard (fail)
* Change keyboard layout from US to random others (fail)
* Recover to "out of box" (fail)
(I figured the registry would be instance specific and not persist through the "Recover to 'Out of Box'" reset.)
* The 'error' continues into the bios. I just accessed and began creating password and the letters type incorrectly there as well..
Hardware issue?
Now I think I should try reinstall separately downloaded chipset drivers bios etc...

I have been having a persistent problem with my trackpad that updates and adjustments cannot seem to fix. Often when I'm using the track pad it constantly zooms in on whatever screen is on dispay when I don't want it to zoom, making it very difficult to use the trackpad normally.Any solutions?

Hi, This problem can be caused by a touchpad setting called 'Pinch Zoom' - you can disable this as follows. Open windows Control Panel and in the top right, next to View by: select 'Large Icons'.  From the new layout, select the Synaptics entry. Remove the checkmark next to Pinch Zoom ( see the image below ), then Click Apply and Ok to save the change.  Regards, DP-K

I'm trying to set up a wireless network but I get a message that the flash disk is write protected. How do I remove the write protect? Also, the disk no longer shows up in 'My Computer' as 'Flash Disk' but as SOFTWARE'. Is the disk knackered?

My speakers worked fine forever and a day. Then I shut down my computer and moved it from my office to my house. I installed all the wires and power to all components and to my surprise, the speakers do not work at all. No sound, no nothing. I have shut down and unplugged everything and put it all back together again and still nothing. I have a green light on my speakers (telling me that they have power) and the plug is color- coded on the back of my computer. I have a 7500 compac presario with jbl platinum series speakers. PLEASE someone have an answer so that i can return to listening to my cds and watching movies on my pc. Thank You.
 

A:speaker malfunction

Verfiy that your speakers work on another setup or you can try some headphones in the speaker jack.

If that's not it, verify that sound is turned up and nothing muted in the mixer control panel.

Look in device manager for any problems

Make sure your audio card didn't come loose in its slot.

In control panel under sound and audio devices or the equivalent check that everything looks right (correct audio device, speakers enabled)

Hi Guys. I have the following problem: My USB devices stop working for half a second and then I have to replug some of them to make them work again. This is not always the same, somtimes I have to replug my mouse, somtimes it works on it own again. I had this problem with different mainboards and different USB devices on different USB slots so I'm not sure if hardware or software related. I have reinstalled windows, I set the power-management to maximum power and set the option in the device manager of every USB port to not let it shut down.
The USB devices are:
Fang Gaming Keyboard
Razer Naga(Normal&Molten)
Creative Tactic 3D Alpha
Steelseries 6gv2
I also have a WLan-USB devices but it doesn't seem to stop working (at least not noticable).
I bought a USB hub with power supply but this did not fix the problem.
I use windows ultime 64bit and my hardeware is:
**CPU** | AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor)
**Motherboard** | Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
**Memory** | G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory
**Video Card** | Gigabyte Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card
**PSU** | Cougar A450
**CPU Cooler** | CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus
What could be the source of the problem and how can I fix it?
Thank you very much

I woke up one morning only to find that whenever I play any audio on my computer it's constantly clicking, popping, lagging and/or skipping. I have no idea why but it isn't the speakers or my media player, I've tried Itunes and it's even worse I can't even make out the song I'm attempting to play!
