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.)



I have a problem with my new notebook Port?g? Z30-B-117,
It has realy noisy fan, I was forced to use baterry saving mode, without that I can not work on this machine.

The fan speed is absurdly designed.
It has much more speed even when it does not heat up.

Please make a new bios with clever fan speed, then it will be the best notebook on the market!

Thanks in advance.

A:Portg Z30-B-117 noisy fan

Sometimes the fan activity would increase in case the CPU is loaded by some background processes.
I had notebook from another manufacturer and the fan speed was high due to process which was running in the background. From time to time the process locked the CPU (up to 80%-90% CPU utilization) and during this time the fan speed was very high.

I spend lot of time to search for details about this process and finally I found out that my antivirus software (it was Norton) loaded the CPU. I switched to Avira and Avast and this issue did not appear anymore.

However, I guess that the CPU could be busy due to any background process?

By the way: you are right: the BIOS contains the fan table and this fan table contain information how to control the cooling modules. But fan activity does not depend only on BIOS? as I said above: background processes as well as the CPU utilization affect the fan speed.

I own my Toshiba Portege Z-30B for the last 7 months. Received it with Windows 8 pro. installed, everything performed fine. I upgraded to Windows 10 about 5 months ago, after the upgrade the fan ran constantly at an unacceptable high noise. Toshiba service replaced the fan - no result. I've been advised by the service to install "eco" utility - done. No result. I've been advised by the service to upgrade to the latest Bios - done, no result. The noise is there when in dock station, there when in "charge" position and there when on battery. I seriously consider to sell and move to Lenovo or Dell. Anybody has some advice ?

My Portege M600 has a re-occurring problem.
After some time in use the screen suddenly shows columns about an inch wide and various colours.
It looks like stacks of varicoloured coins.

The speakers emit a loud screech at the same time. We have to hold down the OFF switch for some seconds to stop the computer. It will then start up normally but of course everything we were working on is lost.

On some days it does that around every half hour!
Other days once or twice a day. Some days not at all.

I feel it could be something to do with overheating.
I have the back of the laptop raised to aid air-flow. Laptop is usually used on a desk.

Is the M600 worth repairing?
At what cost maybe?


A:Portege M600 - Jagged screen picture and loud noise


An higher internal temperature cause notebook crash and yes, the symptoms described in your post above could be caused due to high temperature.

Did you ever clean the fans in the past?
Would recommend doing this using an compressed air spray. The dust inside the cooling vents might prevent the air from circulation and this leads to higher temperature level.

Of course the high temperature might be one of possible reasons causing this problem? however, check if cleaning the fans would help.

I really want this problem to get fixed as soon possible.
I wanted to explain the problem but I myself don't know how to explain it.

My computer is ASUS P5pl2 it has a 1 GB RAM.

If you want any further details, tell me.

A:BSOD, Help please ( picture attached )

NOTE: I have severe eye problems. If I do not respond to your postings, please PM another staff member for assistance. Just FYI - I am having eye surgery on Wednesday - so I may not be on Wednesday or Thursday.

NOTE: Please provide the following information for a more detailed response: http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html

FWIW - the Asus P5 series of boards have a history of issues with Win7. Most of the issues in the past had to do with RAM settings - and the advice was to manually set your RAM settings in the BIOS (in other words, don't use the AUTO setting). To find the settings for your RAM, research that on the memory manufacturer's website.

A recent issue that came up was with the BIOS on the board. I do not recommend updating the BIOS without appropriate research. The process is exact and any error, no matter how small, can turn your motherboard into a door stop.

But, once we get the information that I requested, we can give you a better idea of what's going on.

Hi, my computer keeps bluescreening. It was happening for a while, then it stopped. But it's fired up again, it's happened twice today. Normally it happens when im watching a youtube video, often if I go full screen it will go blank and then I would get an error saying the Capture Card or something had an error and had to restart, I am not sure. I will try to get a picture of it. And then, a few minutes later it will bluescreen!

If it doesn't happen within a few minutes it may take like 10 minutes to an hour for it to bluescreen, but it eventually does.

Here is a crappy gyazo screenshot I took with my phone of the bluescreen.

I have a Creative Labs and a Logitech z-5500 5.1 sourround system. Originally, everything worked fine so I know this is not a hardware problem. I've recently had to reinstall Windows 7 Ult 64, and now I'm only getting stereo sound out of my 5.1 system. Going into Sounds/Diagnostics in control panel I see there's only an option for STEREO, not 5.1 Surround. When I go to the Creative diagnostics and switch from 2/2.1 sound to 5.1 sound, the drop down menu immediately switches back to 2.1. Any suggestions on how to get my sound system fully functioning? I've disabled the onboard sound in the BIOS of my motherboard and made sure the connectors are installed correwctly.

Ok, so I noticed that for a while I haven't been here my microsoft sounds when I boot up and shut down my machine. At first I thought that I didn't have the sound files but that wasn't it.

I went into control panel, sound and audio devices and click on the sound tab. Under the program events list, I notice that many of the program events were missing such as windows start up and windows shut down. This is why I wasn't hearing any sounds when I would shut down and start my computer.

My question is, how do you get those items back on the program event list?

I use windows XP home edition computer.

Any help or suggestions? The thing is the a lot of the items in the program list are missing. So lets say I wanted to change the sound that I hear when I turn my machine on, I would go under windows and highlight windows start. But on my program list, it is not there. Hence I have no sound when my computer goes on. It is a stupid thing I realize that but I am curious how the items were lost and wondering if I can get them back. But hey, my computer is 6 years old and still runs great. I should just be happy with that.

A:Missing items on Program list in Control Panel Sounds

i have the identical problem. i have discovered that if i create a new user account, all the program events are available. if i try the run command for sfc / scannow it asks me insert the windows xp install cd but won't recognize it when i do. I don,t think there is anything short of doing an xp repair that will solve my problem. if you come up with something let me know.

Thanks, Jeff

Somehow I have added over 100 picture links to my display desktop background options in the control panel. While this is not a great problem it is an annoyance and I have no idea how to pare the list down. I can not find where they are located. Can some tell me how to get the list down to just a few?

A:Too many picture links in control panel

Are you sure that you haven't added a folder (perhaps for backup) to the "My Pictures" folder? There's probably a registry entry that you could play with but I would firstly copy all the images you have in "My Pictures" to another folder on the drive. Then delete all the pics in "My Pictures". Check your display settings then and see if the list is empty. If it is then copy the files you want back to the "My Pictures" folder and you should end up with it all back to normal.

As a side note - I would be running a spyware scan of the system as it's never a good sign when you end up with "ghost" file entries. Either do it with your own software or head here for a more thorough check.

At the moment I have a common dialog box that allows the user to preview th path to which he/she will allocate a file type.

Once they have selected a file of their choosing they then select Open, and the file type path is then inserted into an invisible field.

Once the field has the path in it I want the form to automatically update the control source of the picture box (and thereby refresh the picture with the new image).
* The reason I am choosing to store pictures in this way is because I am having real difficulty getting access to preview file types other then bmp (when using OLE objects). So I thought that if I create a field that stores a path somewhere in the database I could get around my problem with the OLE's.
Any Suggestions Will Be Much Appreciated

I am not able to record or hear sounds from my office based Packard Bell laptop running MS Windows XP Professional SP2.

The mixer device is Realtek AC97 Audio which appears to be installed and running OK. The driver is also current.
The attached speakers and Logitech headphones work OK on my personal laptop and are plugged properly.
The control panel volume options are grayed out for both "Device Volume" and "Speaker Settings" in Sounds And Audio Devices Properties.
I am using Windows Default Sounds.
There are no error flags on the "sound, video or game controllers" under Device Manager.
Sound playback default device is Realtek AC97 Audio and sound recoring default device is Logitech USB Headset. MIDI music playback default device is Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth.
Voice playback default device is Realtek AC97 Audio (using laptop speakers selected) and sound recoring default device is Logitech USB Headset.
Troubleshooting has not pointed to any problems.
The problem surely rests with the grayed out volume options with the volume slide set to 0. From my many attempts to Google a solution I am of the opinion that this is not an uncommon problem.
Can someone please help.

Quick question - will a keyboard for a Portege S100 work in a Portege M100?

Layout looks similar; albeit a different colour.

A:Will a keyboard for a Portege S100 work in a Portege M100?


I think you cannot use the same keyboard because the Portege S100 supports the an-easy-to-use 84-key (US) or 85-key (UK) keyboard and the Portege M100 supports the an-easy-to-use 85/86-key keyboard.
Furthermore the connector of the S100 supports the CN3230 keyboard interface 34 pin connector and the M100 supports the PJ3230 keyboard 34pin connector.

So possibly this could be a problem.
I recommend using the original keyboards released for the each notebook model.

I've had a problem recently. I think it started after installing StyleXP to change my Windows visual style. I've since uninstalled StyleXP, but it has not resolved the problem.

My user picture that is usually at the top of the start menu is missing. In addition the green arrow icons and question mark icons in the User Accounts control panel are also missing (I just see red X's). I've tried changing my user picture in the control panel and it does not make a difference. I made sure to restore the default icons in StyleXP before uninstalling, but that didn't matter either.

I've since switched to Windowblinds and IconPackager. I've tried restoring default WinXP icons from IconPackager as well with no luck. Any ideas here? I'll upload some screenshots when I get back home, but I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

    I've got a weird one: I hooked the HDMI from the PC to the television and get great picture, but the sound is weird. I get system "dings" and whatnot, but I don't get the audio from games or YouTube videos. I've already tried setting the default audio device to the HDMI port, but I get sound from the speakers on the PC, not via HDMI.

    The video card is an EVGA 750 Ti SC, running on a Biostar HiFi A85W.


    A:Get system sounds, but NO YouTube or game sounds. Help?

    If you have the Default Audio Playback Device set as HDMI then you should be getting sound only from HDMI. Sounds like that is not happening.

    You should have the NVDIA High Definition Audio and the regular PC audio (whatever that is) shown in the Device Manager, Sounds section. If you do not have NVIDIA High Defintion Audio, or only the generic Windows installed "high Definition audio driver (codec) shown for the HDMI audio that could be the problem.

    Uninstall the Video Card, in the Device Manager (do not uninstall the drivers) then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the Video Card. See if this corrects the problem. If not, install or reinstall the latest NVIDIA driver.

    Here is my hijackthis text file.

    Mary, keyboard problems are not invariably software or malware-related. First things first - what OS are you talking about ? XP, Win 7, Win 8 or what? What type of keyboard is it? PS2, USB or wireless?

    Disconnect it and reconnect it a few times, reboot and try again. Turn the keyboard upside down, placing one end on the edge of a thick book, and thump a few times on the back with your hand. Sweep the crud onto the carpet.....

    Is it just a keyboard hardware problem, and if so which keys? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/keyboard-shortcuts#keyboard-shortcuts=windows-7 tells you a lot of key combinations with ctrl and shift and alt. Tell us if any or none work?

    Open a document and try typing a bit of text. Do all the characters work?

    If it appears the keyboard is faulty, can you borrow another to test?

    Quite often, keyboard problems are down to wireless problems: and can often be solved by re-installing the keyboard driver.

    If you copy an image from a website and paste in the Word file, the image pastes successfully the first time,
    but as you go on & paste other images from the site,
    the first image is repeated over and over again, in place of other images (which have the same dimensions).
    All other text data remain same, the image titles remain same, but only the image is repeated over and over

    A:Microsoft Office Word 2007 picture paste Bug *same picture is repeated

    Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
    I would not advise pasting images in doc files like that,
    I would use ms Paint to paste or save picture as
    I would really recommend using the windows snipping tool to get the images that way no bugs are being transferred to the machine or programs,
    Then use the Insert image option in word...
    It's just a safer way to do an operation,

    Hi all,

    Super bizarre.

    So I woke up this mornind to login into my PC and see that my profile pic is changed back to the previous one. I have not any changes myself.

    skype is linked to microsoft account. (skype had my old picture)

    other option is that someone logged into my outlook and chaged profile picture then it got synced...

    I cannot find any information on why or how picture would revert. ( even more so on a specific date )

    any ideas or leads ?

    A:login profile picture revert back to previous picture

    Hello newbiew, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Since you Microsoft account is synced by default, then it most likely automatically changed back after syncing.

    If you wanted to have the same user account picture for all devices, then changing it for everything should help.

    If you only wanted to change it on this PC, then you could turn off syncing for Appearance under "Personalization settings" using the tutorial below.

The sounds are enabled within sounds and audio device but do not play.

    YouTube? Picture in Picture (Beta)

    Users of this extension have also used
    Watch YouTube? videos in the corner while browsing the site, just like in the mobile apps.
    * Videos will continue to play in a picture-in-picture window when you navigate away from the page
    * Re-open video page at any time without interruption
    * Start videos in a picture-in-picture window with the right click menu

    This extension is a proof-of-concept and is still in beta, with a few known bugs. Playlists don't work correctly, and sometimes videos don't load right. If something goes wrong, opening a new video usually fixes things. If not, try opening a new tab.
