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~~~ Yeah I probably know you guys deal with this problem a lot...
And I searched the forums about the mic prob except none of them really fixed my problem.

Alright well I'll first start off with the details.
OS: Win XP Pro SP2
SOUND: Integrated Soundmax HD audio.
MIC: Logitech headset.

I have a SoundMAX HD audio (integrated) and I wanted to test out the mic...and I tried using M$ sound recorder and no sound came through the mic. I put it in the pink socket, turned on the headset's mic option on. Turned on the Mic on volume controls, with the mic boost.

So what I've noticed while trying to work with the Sounds + Audio Controls is that, there are two different devices for Playback and Recording. SoundMAX HD audio O is used for Playback (and will not record). And SoundMAX HD audio I is only used for recording, and no playback. And I have chosen the right device for recording + playback.

I'm just adding a link to an uploaded image for my volume controls. http://img240.imageshack.us/img240/9818/volumecontrol3ng.jpg I noticed that on the playback device, when I'm listening to music the green lights go up and down, but for the mic its stationary and stays at the bottom blinking.

So I hope to find some suggestions~ Please help me out? Thanks in advance guys.

motherboard - asrock a88m-g/3.1
gpu - gtx 750 ti
cpu - am fx-4350 (not sure though)

my monitor won't detect an input from the gpu, and it isn't a cabling issue. i have no spare parts to test this with, so if at all possible i'd like to figure out what's wrong with it without taking it to a repairman or replacing parts needlessly.

the monitor won't display anything on screen, and will only show that it's trying to detect an input, then shuts off. it started humming a few months back, and sometimes i need to fiddle with the HDMI because no audio will play from the monitor. it's about a decade old.

i ran a stress test on my GPU a few months back and it passed. there's no artifacting / strange displays on anything; the only things maybe relevant are that on the night before my PC broke, i had a lag in an online game i was playing, but i was also streaming music at the time... the lag stopped a few minutes after i turned off the music and more or less went back to normal, so it's unclear if it was just a poor wifi connection or my GPU really dying.

the motherboard i only suspect because at the same time as my PC refused to display an image, one of the case fans stopped working. however, the case fan isn't broken, the pins simply won't register any fan in that slot now. i can turn my PC on with the start button, but i can no longer force it to turn off.

Problem: I built the Computer about 5 months ago and it was working perfectly untill recently the monitor wont detect the vga input. I tried Opening it up and making sure the 6 pin and the 8 pin connectors were plugged into the Graphics Card properly and i know they are because when they are not plugged in properly the comp makes a high pitched noise to let me know that. I also made sure the card was plugged into the pcie slot correctly. I also tried 2 different monitors and two different vga cords. I also tried plugging them in both of the available vga outputs on the card and still the monitor wont detect the vga. I also tried reseting the cmos on the mobo multiple times.

Any Help here would be greatly appreciated its frustrating the heck outa me thanks in advanced!

Hi guys so i have 2 computers with the same problem, the 2nd is an old comp, so I'm not too bothered about.

I noticed my computer was getting a little noisey so i thought i'd clean all the dust out of it.
1st comp
i took the CPU and graphics card off to blow the dust out, also i blew air into the PSU fan.

The computer boots up, sounds perfect, but about 10 minutes uptime it will still be powered but my monitor just goes into standby, i tried with my TV too and the same issue.

2nd comp
I hadn't used for about 1 year, i tried hooking up to monitor and it just doesn't respond, i've tried with another monitor too and still the same, also tried using a different VGA cable. monitor remains standby, But unlike my other computer this one doesn't even display for 10 minutes!

Any ideas on what can be causing this? :suspiciou

i took the CPU and graphics card off to blow the dust out...Click to expand...

What do you mean you took the CPU off? Do you mean the heatsink? The heatsink fan? If you removed the heatsink from the CPU, did you clean off the old thermal compound and apply fresh compound? If not, the CPU is overheating.

Hi, so today I have turned on my PC, but the monitor did not detect it.
I have unplugged and re-plugged all the cables and it still did not work.

I have then tried a different cable and monitor to but again it did not work.

Finally I decided to unplug my graphics card and plug the monitor into the integrated graphics card but once again it did not work.

The monitor does turn on and so does the PC but the monitor does not detect it being plugged in.

Any ideas on what can be the problem? (It all worked fine yesterday)

Using Windows 7 both monitors were being detected/used. Can anyone tell me how to correct. (I'm not very technically experienced, but can follow basic instructions.)

The second display shows a black screen with the message "Cannot Display This Video Mode".

right click on desktop for "display settings" - pick the monitor that shows up that message -> click it to activate -> switch correct video mode for it. its prolly too high resolution issue.

also WIN+P -combination gives you chance to use "extended desktop" which you should use to configure the resolutions

I have updated drivers for my video card, this problem seemed to only happen in Win8/8.1 I didn't have the problem in Win7

I had the company replace my video card, but I still seem to have this problem.
I tried using another PCI-E port on the motherboard and the problem was not resolved.
When I plug my monitor into the integraded DVI port of the motherboard, I don't seem to have this problem.

I just can't figure out what is actually wrong with it.

A:Monitor doesn't detect that computer woke up.

Most of the time, it is the Video driver causing the issue. Uninstall the driver for the Video Display, and then reboot and let windows install the default driver. Also check the Bios to make sure that it is up to date. Windows 8.x has had a lot of random issues, with most being Video Display issues.

I would suggest not allowing the display to be placed into sleep, just set to blank the screen. If you are leaving the machine on for long periods, just turn off the monitor. When you get back to the computer, power it back on with the power button.

Hey i have bought new monitor since my old one sometimes work , sometimes doesn't.When i plugged in my new monitor which is LG TV 24MS53S Smart monitor the mouse has unnatural movements they sluggish and slow and hard to control same whit my tablet.After 2 days i noticed that under Device manager under Monitors it says Generic PnP monitor which is the monitor of my laptop (lenovo y510p) if i am not mistaken.While my monitor is under Audio inputs and outputs as LG TV-C NVIDIA High Definition Audio.I dont know if that what the problems is but i need help to fix my mouse.Also my monitor is connected via HDMI and also when i connect my mouse directly to my monitor it works fine but it can only be used for TV and apps, etc.

A:It doesn't detect my monitor as a monitor

The audio is referring to the audio signal for the TV. I want to make sure I understand you correctly, you are using the external monitor (LG) as your primary display, not dual monitors...?

If this is the case, go back into Device Manager, rt.click the Generic Monitor and choose "Update device driver". As long as the LG monitor is the primary display, and your laptop screen is off, 'Generic Monitor' is referring to whichever monitor is active. If you are using both monitors, then you should have two monitors being shown in device manager.

As far as the mouse feeling 'sluggish', do you mean it's just very slow? What is the screen resolution of your new LG monitor? Is it the same as the laptop monitor? If the resolution is higher, sometimes the mouse will seem sluggish when using a higher resolution, which means you might have to turn up the pointer speed in the mouse's control panel. Before you update the device drivers for the monitor (which may or may not be able to be updated), try reducing the screen resolution of the LG and test the mouse that way.

Windows automatically updated last night before shutting down. When I turned on the computer this morning, the HP w2207h monitor was not functioning properly. Each time I rebooted, I received the message "HDMI Input: No Input Signal" before the monitor went to sleep.

I do not believe it is a problem with the sleep and display settings as I have dual monitors and the EN9910 is functioning properly; both are set to NEVER anyway. Further, I have plugged our SONY television into the HDMI port and it works just fine.

I have also plugged the monitor into another computer, using the same cable, and both worked just fine. The hp monitor also functions in the utility mode. Problem seems to exist only when Starting Windows.

This has happened once before with a Windows Update, but I don't recall the solution.

Please help.

But mate I also think you may have answered it yourself in another way. Can you remember when this started happening? If so system restore back to before that date.

Then it is just a matter of downloading any updates if this is what is - one or two at a time until you find which one is the culprit. Make a not of that one and each time it comes up untick it to download / install.

Hi, thank you for helping me and reading my topic, much appreciated. Well, here is the story. The laptop is a FUJITSU SIEMENS ESPRIMO-V5535
A couple of days ago I tried switching on the laptop from its battery because it still had some charge or battery power left i ssed the power button several times and it didn't turn on. I tried connecting the AC adapter and this still gave the same result, it wouldn't turn on. So I took the batter out and tried switching it on using the AC adapter alone, still the same problem but when I moved the cable up and down it finally detected it.

So I even tried replacing the 3A fuse and it was still the same thing. So what I did was the use the crimpter and the cable or plug that connect the laptop port I used the crimper on it. So now the laptop does charge, but the cable as the be in one place i.e. down.

So my question to you guys is, do you think it is the cable that is the problem? the laptop where the power cable goes to there is a sharp pointy metal which charges the laptop and that is straight and not bent. The adapter which hs rhe yello cable at the end as tiny bit beny inside.

Do you think If I purchase an AC universal adapter it will work. I have been to alot of people and they didn't help me. I have limited knowledge when it comes to laptop, because this laptop is frequently used by my sister for here course work.

Please reply, Thank you.

A:Laptop does not detect AC adapter input

Either the plug, the socket on the computer, or both has been damaged. Probably from the computer being dropped or someone stepping on the plug.

Have a similar problem with the Toshiba laptop I am using right now. Was able to replace the plug that goes into the computer (it was cracked inside).
Still have problems with the computer not running/charging with the AC adapter sometimes bcause the socket on the computer was also damaged and needs to be replaced. Don't have the equipment to do it myself, and it costs too much to have a shop do it.

USB, even USB3 was never meant for transferring large amount of data needed for HD video, too much conversion has to be made. Laptops are limited by number and type of outputs but desktops can accommodate multiple video cards and even basic cards with Display port that use power of existing GPUs to provide video signal to more monitors or TVs.

Hi Everyone, I'm sorry if a similar question has already been posted here, but I couldn't find it myself. I'm having really weird problems with my brand new Y580. It doesn't detect the charger, and because of this - won't charge. I managed to figure out how to temporarily fix the problem, but it keeps on happening. Long story short: What's wrong: (after applying a temporary fix and the laptop IS charging) when I unplug the charger and plug it back in again, the laptop doesn't detect it (it keeps on draining the battery and does't prompt that a charger is connected). The same happens when I close the lid and open it again - the charger magically disconnects itself. My temporary fix: I somehow managed to get the laptop working when connected to the charger after applying these steps: OS shut downbattery removedcharger unpluggedpressed power button once (just for a second)charger plugged to a different wall socketcharger plugged to the laptoppower button pressed once (laptop boots up)when the OS loads up, battery inserted again As I mentioned, this fixes my problem only temporarily as I can't close the lid or unplug the charger without repeating the same procedure. I'm pretty sure the same thing happens when I simply switch the laptop off from the OS level. I'm using Windows 8 now but the same thing happended when I was on Windows 7. Has anybody had a similar experience? I appreciate your help and advice. Piotr

When I plug it into the mic input jack on the laptop, I have tried the different combinations of settings in audacity and I feel curious why it is not reading or registering the mic.

I would please like to learn how I can configure the the sound on the laptop so the mic input works, I'm not sure yet if the laptop is perhaps missing a driver.

I've been using a DELL SE198WFP monitor for two years. It's been running fine on its native resolution of 1440x900 until a day ago. This resolution disappeared recently.

I have done nothing out of ordinary these past few days (Unless you count plugging in a newly-bought USB hubman.) so I have no clue how or why this happened.

I am currently using a resolution of 1152x864, which I would have no problem with, except that now I am unable to play most of my MMOs.

When I run a game, the screen turns black and there is a message saying, "1 : Auto Detect (Analog Input). Cannot Display This Video Mode." I have tried most of the other resolutions that my monitor was capable of displaying, but I kept receiving the same message.

So far, I've tried:
-System restoring.
-Installing the monitor driver from the website.

How do I convince my computer that my monitor is an LCD widescreen and not a generic non-pnp monitor?

A:Auto Detect (Analog Input). Cannot Display This Video Mode

Try the following:

1) Unplug the Cable from the back of the monitor and check if you can see window moving across the screen
(Self Test for the monitor)

2) Try to re-install the video drivers.
The monitor drivers are not much of a use, still good you re-installed them.

Once again, switchable graphics only controls which GPU is used for rendering. It does not change which GPU is physically wired to the display outputs, and all 3 of the features I listed earlier require support from the GPU that is physically wired to the display output in order to be used. Currently, Intel GPUs do not support any of those features, so in a system with the design you want, those features couldn?t be used even if the system had a dGPU that supported those features, because the dGPU wouldn?t be physically wired to the display output. I?m sitting on an XPS 15 right now that is designed the way you want and has switchable graphics with an NVIDIA GPU that supports those features ? but my system can?t use any of them because the iGPU is wired to the display outputs. Switchable graphics does not fix that. You can shout in Caps Lock and say things as many times as you want, but that won?t make you right. You clearly don?t fully understand how some of these technologies work and what they require, but if you still think I?m wrong, go do some research and you?ll find lots of threads of people asking why their laptops with NVIDIA GPUs don?t support G-Sync or VR ? or 5K displays, which is another one I forgot about.

3 computer network. Linksys router daisychained with a switch, which is chained to a wireless access point.

Everything works fine apart from the one computer. It is not getting an IP from the router. It does not get the internet connection. It cannot share files with the other two computers. Basically acts as though it's not even plugged into the network.

So I go for the obvious and assume it's a wire or bad plug, and try hooking the rogue's end up to my laptop. Laptop works fine, gets net and can share files. I check the NIC and it's detected and working properly.

Must be a software issue. Windows XP Pro is not happy. It's a fresh install after a format. I've run the wizard with the 'connects through a residential gateway' as opposed to the 'connects directly to the internet'. I tried the latter but it says cannot complete setup.

The two lights on the card are blinking. The lights on the router corresponding to the rogue computer light up just the the others. I've tried moving it to the switch; no dice.

What could be the problem?

I bought an Ion USB turntable to burn my LP's onto CD's. It worked fine, then mysteriously my Mac G5 (without the intel CPU, and with OSX) no longer registered the USB input in the Sound section of System preferences, and the audio software says the USB isn't connected. I've reloaded the EZ Audio converter software received from the manufacturer via email, tried new USB ports and cables, but to no avail. Another twist - while I can download the EZ audio software off of email, when I try the EZ software CD ROM that came with the unit, once I get to the Install part of the process, a pop-up appears that says "There is nothing to install". AARRGGHH!!!
Interestingly, my Mac laptop does recognize the turntable. It's just strange that it worked very well on G5, then stopped. I also downloaded Audacity software, but it didn't work too well and I removed it; however, that's when the trouble started.

Can anyone help with this?

Now, if I want to write using a pen (which I use a lot since Windows 7 and now in Windows 10) to make Windows properly recognize the hand-writing one always first has to adjust the input language or else Windows recognizes only garbage. This is already annoying enough. It would be much better if one could teach Windows to recognize multiple languages (e.g. on my Android table this works perfectly)!

But - even more annoying - this input language adjustment also switches the keyboard layout, i.e. if I switch to using the keyboard after having written something with the pen in German) the keyboard is also switched to the German layout, which regularly drives me nuts and forces me to edit or reenter stuff.

Why is there no option to change the recognition language ONLY for pen input but leave the keyboard layout ALWAYS the same?

This indicates to me that MS has no real clue how their users are actually using their systems! Is there really no bilingual employee within MS using the English International keyboard for typing and inking in two... Read more

Hi. I'm new to this forum and it's my first post. Recently im having problem with my pc.
These few days my pc start not to behave normally. Sometimes it just will hang suddenly. And now I have a clean install window 7 home premium 64 bit and now I'm stuck with the set up window part becaus it won't detect any USB port at all. I tried to insert all USB port to see if it can detect my mouse or keyboard. I've tried it on another pc and it works fine. I really need help. My pc now is like without hand and leg but only body.
This is my pc spec

A:How do I fix my USB that it doesn't detect anything at all

You're saying it doesn't detect any USB port. Is that because when you try to use a keyboard or mouse, you see no response on the screen?

If so, couple of things you could try:
1) If your motherboard has both USB 3.0 ports and USB 2.0 ports, make sure the keyboard and mouse are BOTH plugged into the USB 2.0 ports.
2) Go into your BIOS settings and see if you have an option to enable or disable legacy mode. If you have that option and legacy mode is disabled, then enable it and try again.

I have Acer S3-391 with Windows 7. The original 500GB Hitachi hdd failed and I decided to replace it with 240GB Kingston SSD drive (model V300). Problem is that even BIOS (latest v1.29) doesn't detect it.BIOS lists HDD0 as "None" and HDD1 as "SATA SDD", which is probably the integrated 20GB SDD drive.Any hdd I have tested with, will be detected normally, but not this SDD drive.  SDD drive is new and I have tested it with other computer and it works fine.Unfortunately I don't have any other SSD drive to test with. Does this "BIOS" model support SSD drives at all ?

I have the Lenovo Z50-75 and am attempting to upgrade the HDD to a Crucial M550 1TB SSD to no avail. The drive is not being detected on this machine, but it runs fine on my desktop. I've updated BIOS to v33 and tried both UEFI and Legacy settings with no luck. Is this model not compatible with SSD or maybe mine specifically?

Hi everyone,

I have had a long term problem with any mouse I use on my computer, whether it be optical or laser with or without drivers the mice are harder to control than they should be.

Most of the optical mice seem to have faster movements than they should do, whilst the laser mice seem to have the opposite effect; now I have tried different ports, surfaces, dpi etc. and they make subtle changes but nothing major.

When I first had my PC around 2 1/2 years ago everything felt fine, even with the mouse I am using now (Madcatz RAT 3) so I am not sure what has changed.

I am not sure what else I can try, if it comes to it I may end up taking it to a local repair shop even then I don't think it will be fixed.

Has anyone got any ideas of something I can check or try which may give me a better insight to what is causing the problem.

Many thanks in advance,

My line input jack does not work.  When I go to <control panel><sound><recording tab>.  I can see the mic works by watching the level meter.  However, when I plug in a three level audio jack with an audio source the meter does not show any sound.<Properties><Jack Information> says "No Jack Information Available" which seems suspect. However, if I click on <properties> again it says the device is working properly. Any thoughts!

A:Help! My Cd drive doesn't detect cd

First, it could be lint or trash has gotten into and covered laser. Second, it could be the drive motor not coming up to speed or not at all! My sugestion would be try a couple of short burst of canned air to make sure you dislodge any dust. Then try a Cd, when drawer closes with a Cd on it, put a finger or two on the face plate you should feel the motor strat up or attempt to do so. If nothing happens then you need to replace Cd player!

I am writing in because I think I've exhausted all means of trying to fix an issue with my drive.

As title states, I inserted a DVD into my LG GH24NS90 but Windows 7 is not detecting it.
Info about my computer :
GA-Z68XP-UD3 (rev. 1.0) - Gigabyte
1. Installed Windows 7 OS on IDE mode
2. Tried burning a DVD using ConvertXtoDVD but it burns very slowly (even though it was set at x16) and it freezes the computer when burning.

Hence, I tried to change it to AHCI mode as information on the internet says changing it to AHCI would solve the problem,

1. Update drive to latest firmware.
2. Changed to AHCI (in BIOS) and selected my SSD to boot with success!
3. Tried to insert DVD into drive but not detected!
What can I do!!!

last saturday i could install win xp pro sp2 without having any problems. all is running good. but there is one problem : the system doesn't detect my scanner (genius colorpage hr6x series) i can install the device with the hardware wizard. the device manager tells me that the device is working properly. but after restarting the computer it tells me: scanner not found. i tried it many times but always the same: scanner not detected. i checked at genius for new drivers. but they didn't have new ones.

what can i do? i need some help. thanks in advance.

A:win xp pro sp2 doesn't detect scanner

SP2 is still not yet stable and Microsoft, revert back to SP1 may help, Microsoft needs to get more bugs out of SP2.

Another thing is some scanner goes into power saving mode after a few mins, this happened to my own scanner which turns off itself from time to time and Widnows couldn't find it. Some parallel cable jsut die on you too.
