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.)

A: E-mail Malfunction

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?

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.

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.

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!

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

However, about a month ago the keyboard started going nuts. Example: \pmjhx\\pmjhx\pmjhx\pmjhx\pmjhx\pmjhx That is from typing a "down arrow" and a "backspace." Sometimes half the keys will do this, and sometimes its only one or two. sometimes the keyboard will just start typing an endless string of these and the only way to stop it is to take the batteries out. Would like to avoid purchasing another keyboard if possible. Any idea whats happening here? We've tried new batteries and key removal with cleaning.

Hi all. I'm having some trouble with Vista, or maybe its my MoBo. I recently installed Vista on my home premium edition, ran good. My old motherboard was, shall i say blown up :), so i replaced it with a FoxConn Winfast 761GXK8MB, during the process of upgrading i lost my partition of windows vista, not sure how. I tried a clean install using the vista disk, setup formats my partition, does some installing and reboots, it loads up vista. Suddenly @Hardware [email protected] comes up with a blue background Click Here.
I am not that famillar with vista, but im sure its the MoBo. I rebooted, and loaded up in safe mode, vista loads up but before it get to the desktop, a message box appears and says that i must reboot into normal mode to complete instalation and restarts. I was thinking it might be a MoBo and driver issue, but i can't know for sure until it boots into normal mode and completes seup. Has anyone come accross this problem and can give me any assistance.

Thanks in advance.

A:Hardware Malfunction

When you say that you "lost your partition" I wonder if that means the disk was damaged somehow. If this is the case then you may be trying to reinstall back on to a damaged disk.

You could try going on to the website of your hard disk manufacturer (will say on the disk itself) and seeing if they provide a disk checking utility. It will probably come in the form of a CD image (.iso file) which you can burn to a CD and boot your poorly computer from. the utility will then run and check the disk for errors.

This started yesterday, I plugged in my headphones but could not hear any audio through them. I checked if there was an update for any drivers and there was one for the Realtek HD Audio driver. I updated it and when I tested it the audio blared through one side and was muffled on the other also it was disoriented. I rolled back the driver to the previous version and it worked fine, but the microphone isn't work on it.

Note: My headphone are just ordinary music headphones with a mic on the wire not a fancy headset, but before this it worked perfectly.

My keyboard is acting strangely. A couple of the letter keys are malfunctioning. For example: both the ’e’ and ’r’ will skip when using my word processor. The ‘r’ will also change the paragraph writing alignment from justify to center or left. While in the web, the ’e’ will skip and then open up the ‘search’ window while the ‘r’ will skip and close the web page. This is all odd and very aggravating. I have also changed keyboards twice, and all contained the same problem. Any answers would be helpful. Thanks.

We have a HP2100 connected to our W2K network. Whenever you send a print job to it, the light next to the "Go" button on the printer will blink. Nothing from the job you send will come out until you push the button. And when you have a document over 1 page, it requires you to push the button for EVERY page of the document (ugh!). I checked HP's website (so helpful) and the closest thing I could find was this:

The printer may be in manual feed mode (Go light blinking).
Add paper to Tray 1 and press and release the GO button.

I have checked the printer settings on the server and on my workstation - they have Letter paper with Auto Select as the defaults. I have tried setting it to pickup from Tray1 and 2, nothing.

Please help, this is very annoying!!! I don't want to have to call the $80/hr service people...it has to be something simple.

P.S. I hate printers that don't have a control panel that lets you change setting in them.

Hello all.

In the process of replacing an AT power supply on an AMD-K6 driven baby tower, and switching around the hard drives (master to slave and vice versa), I wound up with everything working & detected at startup, and then a little message like so:

*** CPU Cooling Fan Malfunction ***
Press any key to continue.

I would point out, by the by, that the CPU cooling fan is turning like a dream. Is this a BIOS thang? I dunno.

Thanx for your helpx.
