Preferred Solution: BIOS caching and shadowing

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.)

And after that it said that check all new resently installed hardware and software. I know it isnt software because on the first day i bought it from the store, it restarted. So I know it isnt software its some hardware i dunno.

A:what is bios caching and shadowing and how do you disable it.

Well if its new I'd be checking on warranty - a new machine should not be doing this at all.

"Enable System BIOS Shadowing

Shadowing is the process of copying slower ROM code into underlying RAM memory to improve performance of the ROM routines. The most commonly-shadowed ROM is the system BIOS ROM. Enabling the BIOS ROM shadowing feature will result in a small performance improvement.

Note: It is unusual in my experience for problems to result from using this setting, so if you are having trouble enabling this you may want to troubleshoot your memory or motherboard."

Have you double checked to make sure you used the correct update for your BIOS? It would be unusual for a BIOS flash to not work correctly unless it failed completely, but it might be worth a shot to try to flash it again with a newly downloaded update.

I'm quite familiar with accessing the BIOS menu, however, I'm not quite sure which selection within the BIOS menu I would access in order to disable this feature. I continually get a blue screen telling me that the "physical memory is being dumped", and that changing the BIOS selection will possibly help to fix it. The only time it happens is when I'm playing a game, or using Photoshop and watching a movie on the second monitor.

Hi,

After restarting my system today, I started getting a BSOD in my Vista Home Premium machine every 10-15 minutes without having to do anything on the computer.

The BSOD says the following:
check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If there is a new installation ask your software or hardware manufacturer for any new updates you might need. If problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components restsart your computer press F8 to select advanced startup options and then select safe mode.Click to expand...

The last thing I did on my computer is installing "Adaware anniversary edition", which required a reboot 2 days ago, but I didn't reboot till now. I uninstalled that, but still the same issue. I haven't done anything else as far as I can remember.

I checked the event viewer, but the "error" I find only says that an unexpected shutdown occurred.

I'm now trying system restore in hopes it'll fix the problem, but it probably won't.

Any idea how I can troubleshoot/solve this issue? what kind of information can I post here to make troubleshooting the issue easier for you guys?
Any help is so much appreciated

There were no recent hardware installations and the BIOS menu has no options related to caching / shadowing as far as i can tell.

Win XP

Maintained this Sony laptop just fine for years with Drive Image 7, rewriting the C drive whenever something seemed to start happening.

This time I can barely do this, and the transfer of the archive image to drive C takes way too long.

Ran recovery disks for the first time and that seriously degraded the system to the point that windows take over a minute to open, and get stacked up on eachother and fail.

Copying data files to an external hard drive but the rate of transfer is very bad. I was planning on wiping the hard drive with MaxBlast utility, and then attempting another disk recovery.

No a serious error message to disable bio caching and shadow something.

Is my computer permanently ruined?

What steps should I take?

1. There doesn't appear to be an option in BIOS to disable memory caching/shadowing. No advanced options, just Information, Main, Security, Boot and Exit. It's Phoenix SecureCore version 0.3204.
 
2. Also, my memory usage has been a lot higher since running ToolWiz Care tuneup program. I don't have any restore points from that period to reverse it.
 
Any help on how to remedy either or both of these issues would be really appreciated, 

A:Can't disable memory caching in BIOS etc

Why do you want to disable shadowing? All that does is at boot up, instead of mapping the (slow) BIOS flash RAM of adapters and the mainboard BIOS into the HMA (High Memory Area) at the top of the first 1MB of system RAM, a tiny amount of system RAM is mapped to that location and the flash RAM contents copied to it. That means any access to BIOS code is much much faster, and uses basically no resources - the entire HMA is only 384 kilobytes of memory.
 
The use of system "Tuneup" utilities is a recognized potential hazard for a system, and can result in either misreported "errors" being supposedly corrected without anything actually being achieved, or some harm being done to important system functions, such as the Registry. Bleeping Computer recommends avoiding the use of such utilities.
 
Since I don't use them at all, and have no direct knowledge of their operation, I must leave it to more experienced techs here to offer suggestions as to the best way to deal with possible problems when there is no restore available.

A:Monitor Shadowing!

Even though it appears that your monitor is defective, make certain to properly troubleshoot your situation. Place a "known good" monitor with your computer and test. If the replacement is fine, then you may have a bad monitor. On the other hand, if you see a similar problem, then suspect your video card or AGP slot. Check the pins in the monitor cable to make certain one is not loose or bent since this can cause a variety of odd colors or other problems to show on your monitor. Last, move your computer a little farther from your monitor and make certain you do not have a TV nearby in order to reduce the magnetic field around your monitor, which can also cause a variety of onscreen oddities.

You can get to the Services console to check on your Services settings (and make changes if necessary) by navigating: Start/Control Panel/Performance and Maintenance (in category view)/Administrative Tools/Services. It has a good help file (available from its Help menu in its toolbar).

http://img144.imageshack.us/img144/1581/tearing4ss2.jpg

Here's my specs for helping to ID the problem:

Asus K8U-X MoBo
AMD Athlon64 2800+ 1.8Ghz
XFX 7600GS 512mb AGP
1024mB DDR Ram
350W PSU

One thing I should mention. The 6600gt had a similar problem, but very minor, and doesn't cause artifacts in games.

All my drivers and BIOS are updated. GPU Temp idles at 53 and 60-70 in game. I've tried using older drivers, third-party drivers, turning off fast write... and many more.

I'd appreciate any suggestions from you guys, before I return the MoBo with warranty... and taking everything out... and have to reinstall windows... etc...

Thanks a million =)
 

A:(Help) Graphics tearing, shadowing, artifacts and redraw problems.

Hello, I have a problem. Precisely, a image tearing and artifact problem.

I just switched from a 6600gt to a 7600gs. Everything is fine. Games are silky smooth. Until... Usually an hour to 2 after boot up, no matter what I'm doing, Windows starts having redraw problems. Then, image tearing and shadowing. If i start up a game, the graphics would be filled with artifacts.

Pictures would explain it much better, so here's some of screen captures:

This shows tearing in Windows UI and webpage images:

I just have a question about this. I got a vista home premium 32-bit gateway laptop. And I see the option to delete DNS Cache in CCleaner. All I'm curious about is, what is that really going to do? Anything major besides make my pages load .2 seconds slower?

A:DNS Caching

In general, it's not going to do anything other than force the system to go out and repopulate the cache as you surf the web.

Also, if the DNS Cache is "poisoned" it can prevent you from reaching a website that you want to go to.

Hi all,

When you load a webpage, the files (images, ...) that the webpage contains will be downloaded. If the server hosting the webpage goes down while the files are being downloaded, then IE's Temporary Internet Files will contain partially downloaded files. When the server is back up and running, and you refresh the page, the partially downloaded files will not finish downloading, and will never be downloaded again. The webpage will never display the files that were partially downloaded, and the only way to fix this is to delete the Temporary Internet Files.

Other browsers do not have this problem. It looks like IE does not compare the file size in the Cache, to the file size on the server, but only compares the date, which is the same.

How to reproduce the problem (for developers):
-create a webpage that contains a big file (jpg, swf, or any file).
-on a client computer, clear the Temporary Internet Files, then start loading the page.
-before the file has time to finish downloading, stop and start the web server.
-look inside the Temporary Internet Files, and you will see a partially downloaded file.
-refresh the page, and the partially downloaded files will not finish downloading.

Note: I tried many different file headers, but it looks like whatever header you set for the file, even "no caching ..." headers, the problem always happens.

I have windows Vista home basic 32 bit operating system. Recently i installed IE9 ans now if i open a website after clearing cache it gives HTTP code 200 on fidddler then on second session it gives 304 for most of the request . My temporary internet file setting is "Automatic". I checked on temporary internet files and nothing is seen there. If i do the same in firefox 4 then on second request it doesnt give 304 and content is served from cache and i am able to see the content there in firefox cache.
1). In case of IE9 if content is not there in cache then how it is giving HTTP response code 304 (not modified)
2). Is there any other cache other than disc cache if yes then how can i see the content of that cache.

A:caching problem in IE9

I recently installed IE9 on my Windows vista home 32 bit. Whenever I open a website after clearing browser cache then on fiddler first time it gives HTTP code 200 for all requests. When i check on browser cache all gif, jpeg, js are cached and expiry time is 1 month. But when i open the same page it gives HTTP Status code 304 for gif, jpeg and js.
Not able to figure it out why it is not picking the content fron the browser cache. Temporary Internet Files setting in set to "Automatic".
