Hello Dinesh and welcome to the forums

Remove any 3rd party codecs you have installed, then install Shark007's codec pack:

i got a new laptop a month or so ago, but since using it the screen is doing my head in. it keeps flicking from filling the whole screen to having a black bar about 1 or 2 inches wide on either side and everything on the screen then fills only that area, not even the cursor can go in the black sides.

my tabs on google crome also get smaller, for example, the twitter tab when the screen is big will say twitter/home with a little gap after and when it is small only twitter/ho will fit. it happens constantly no matter if i'm touching the laptop or not. the screen will go back then swap size. however, if i'm typing it will carry on during the balck screen that's on for like half a second, but the cursor will go back to being in the middle. sometimes it can be like 15 mins between size changes, but sometimes it like happens about 10 times within 30 seconds.

i checked the screen resolution but when i change that the font just gets bigger, and thats not the problem.i get a message each time it changes saying...

"optimal resolution notification. this is not the optimal screen resolution for the clone dispaly configuration. the optimal resolution is 800 x 600. click this notification for more information" but when i change it to this only the font size changes.

 I have a 4 year old Compac CQ61-410US Notebook. The flicking problem happens in Chrome and Internet Explorer and if I play the games that came with the computer. When I hit enter, space bar and other things it will stop for a while but then it is back. Interesting note it has not done it once since I have been on this site!
The noise is new  and it make me very nervous. No sound should be coming from this thing insides.  Well maybe a little but I do not want to hear it running this loud. Is my hard drive about to die?
On a personal note I am as old as dirt and every thing I buy I have to think will I live to use it. Should I just go and have everything downloaded to a new computer or is this pain something I can take of? I have had some other problems and have been able to fix it with help from this fabulous site
Thank You

A:Flicking on screen and noise in my laptop

First of all, welcome to BC. See, it's a great site, your problem has gone away already !
 
On a more serious note, what sort of noise is it ?  Sort of a fan whirring noise, or is there an element of click to it ?  There are three things I would do as a precaution / check.
 
First off, back up my data - work, photos, music, that sort of stuff. Depending on how much you have, you can use anything from a USB stick to an external USB hard drive. But back it up, just in case you do have a hard drive problem.
 
Secondly, run chkdsk /r on you hard drive. You do this by opening the Command prompt which you will find at 'Start / Programs / Accessories'. RIGHT click on 'Command prompt' and select 'Run as administrator' in the drop-down box that appears. This will produce a black window with white text. Just type 'chkdsk /r' (Note - there is a space between 'chkdsk' and '/r') and press enter. You will then get a message saying it cannot run, do you wish to run at next boot Y / N. Type 'Y' (= Yes) and press enter, then reboot your computer. Chkdsk will run when it starts up.
 
Dependiing on the size of your hard drive and the speed of your processor, this may well take upwards of an hour, don't turn your computer off until it has finished. It will then tell you if there are any faulty sectors on your hard drive.
 
Thirdly I would download, install and run a little program called 'Speccy', you can get it here :

Hi,This is kuiyoung. I had service few month. I forgot when it was. That time your technician came to office and changed motherboard. But when Im using it, suddenly it starts flicking and get error message that pc went to wrong. It's been two weeks. Strongly I think this one has problem and I don't wanna repair anymore. Because as you can see, I requested several times to repair this notebook. I'm really sick of it. I really don't think this one has virus. Thus I don't wanna install any program to wasting my time. I hope that you understand my situation. Thus I wanna refund or change new one. If you refund I would be more happier than change new one happy. Because after changing new one, same problem, I won't call you guys again. I will definitely buy other brand. It was my first time to buy Dell laptop. Really disappointed. I hope other people won't make same problem like me. I used to use other brand and never had problem.

Per Dell policy;* A refund is only possible if requested inside the FIRST 30 days from the original invoice date.* Any system exchange after the first 30 day will be a refurbished, not new.At this point, all we can do on this Forum is troubleshoot the flicker issue.

Hey Sevenforums,

I just grabbed myself an awesome deal on a desktop for about 65 bucks. I booted up the computer and noticed that on boot, the screen starts to flicker and does some weird flashes. all my laptops never experience this but for computers, I don't know whether its normal or not. Not even my older desktop does this..

I uploaded a video using tinypic so please take your time to examine my computer's boot up (1:30) long.

ignore the "windows 7 is not genuine" because the person who sold it to me used a bootleg copy. I'm going to run LINUX and my own windows 7 ultimate OS.

I'm plugged into a DVI-D male to a DVI-I female (Desktop) to a HDMI (HDTV)

I was able to do this in Win7 but can't figure out what to do in W10.
Problem is that I want File Explorer to start with the display at a particular folder. In my case that is D:\Tony\Pictures. And with the contents of that folder in the right-hand pane.
I should add that C: is the label for the SSD on this PC and data is stored in D:
At the moment, in the folders pane it shows five items: Quick Access, OneDrive, This PC, Network and Homegroup. If any of these are expanded then it will remain expanded but only down one level when re-opened. The default selected item of the five is always Quick Access and that is of little use to me.
Thanks in advance!

I recently installed Quickbook Pro Desktop 2019. I had no problem installing it and setting it up. I used it just fine for a few weeks. But then it started opening and asking me for my password and then freezing and not opening the company file at all or taking 30+ minutes to do it. It also creates gigabytes of temp files when it goes through this process in %temp%. The attached image is the screen it freezes on after I enter the password and choose a company file to open.

I have:

1) run the QB Refresher tool

2) uninstalled and reinstalled quickbooks (before I reinstalled it was creating so many temp files it was completely filling my hard drive, after reinstall still creating tons of temp files but not filling drive - I have 50+ gb of hard drive space free)

3) held down CTRL while launching quickbooks and choosing a different company file ( I have several) and the program always opens but always freezes when I try to launch a company file.

4) Even took it to Best Buy's Geek Squad to make sure no viruses

Hi,

I do a lot of data manipulation between one spreadsheet/ text file and another. Some of the files I have are '.txt' in extension which I open by right clicking and selecting 'Open with Excel'.

Annoyingly, since I got a new pc with Windows 7 on it this results in a new instance of Excel opening instead of using the instance I already have open. So it tells me my personal macro workbook is already in use, I have to select read only to continue, and then the real problem of not being able to refer to the workbook from the workbook I already have open starts. I am usually trying to vlookup one data table to another, but since this problem started I cannot select the other instance of excel in the formula bar and have to manually copy all the data to the workbook of Excel I already have open.

Is there an option or workaround to avoid this? Why would I want to open more than one instance of Excel anyway when I can open multiple workbooks in one instance?

Hi

In my team at work we use a shared timesheet that only one user can access at a time (if another user tries to access they receive a message asking if they would like to read-only or be notified when the other user has closed the file).

Today, when opening the file from either the desktop shortcut or from explorer, two versions of the same file open, although the secondary version always opens on the same tab, whereas the other one remains on where the file was last saved.

If i go to Windows menu, the files are listed as:
timesheet.xls:1 and
timesheet.xls:2

Any ideas on what may have caused this and more importantly, how to fix this?

Many thanks

I'm at my mum's house and I've decided to try out MapleStory on her old laggy computer. She recently updated her internet, but it still runs terribly slow.
When I download MapleStory (client on the nexon website), everything downloads perfectly fine and within 2 hours, it'll be finished. Installing it takes time, but it ends up installing everything perfectly fine (including the finishing bits when you run the game).
It runs fine and I can log in and select a server and channel, but the moment it goes to the 'character selection' screen, the whole game starts flicking around and it makes it impossible to click 'back'.
If I select a server with no characters, the images stay fine, but if I go to create a character, the images begin to flick again. (Oblviously has something to do with the characters...but what)?
MapleStory doesn't close or anything, but I can't exit it. I can, but only by the task manager. Just want to know what's going on and if anyone knows how, how to fix the problem.

My monitor is just spazzing out, and I have no idea why. In fact I know it's not the monitor that's the problem because I switched my tower with my brother's tower to see what would happen (using the same monitor), and it works perfectly fine.

Just so you guys have some background...

My computer decided to crash at one point whilst I was playing music and using MSN messenger, not even letting me bring up task manager using ctrl+alt+delete. I had to manually restart the computer, but when the startup screen came up it had a really strange graphics issue where there were sketchy lines running through the screen, and when the DOS-looking screen came up (i.e. when checking if there's anything in the CD drive) all the characters were jumbled and scattered. What's worse, Windows didn't even start up...the screen just stayed blank after the Windows load screen. I attempted Safe Mode and the same thing occurred, so I'm guessing it is a hardware issue?

Just to be sure I tried putting my computer through system recovery with the disk that was provided with the computer, and surprisingly it did take me to Windows...the part where it starts checking for hardware drivers and goes through all the stuff that it does when you recover the system...however when it said it had to test the keyboard and mouse, and the screen may flicker for a few seconds my monitor started off with its very own issue. I waited at least 10 minutes, and it didn't stop.

Using a different graphics card.

Using different ports for my graphics card in the board.

Removing and cleaning graphics card and RAM.

Dear all,

I just recently installed Windows 7 Home Premium x64 and my relevant drivers for Dell.
All was working fine until these problems occured.

1) At the taskbar, if there are more than one tab (for instance Windows folder) we can usually click it and select the tab we wish to go to. But for my case, the "Tab Screen" simply disappears after I click it once, so I can't choose the folder I wish to go.

2) For any browsers (windows browser, chrome, internet explorer, more) whenever I press the back button it simply reverts back to the page I was at (sort of like someone pressed forward the moment I press back).

Hope to receive help.
If any specifications are needed it'd be much appreciated if you can tell me how to give you guys the logs.

Cheers,

Hello all

Any advice please or where to go for assistance.

This is A Dell XPS 8930 - with windows 10 (i am pretty sure it is windows 10 anyhow!!)

Just had a frustrating few hours - earlier today I loaded my Epson scan software (V500 photo scanner) and did some scans. Saving as 48 bit tiffs to the desktop.
Few hrs later all scans done and saved into the folder - i come to open one up (double click) and it does nothing and then the folder shuts - try again and the same thing.
I then tried opening one of the files from Photoshop and it pointed to the file then photoshop crashed (closed)!!?
Anyhow left it a while - did something else. Came back and tried opening a tiff form the folder and it just continually flashed the folder on the screen then off , on off.... whilst it is doing this I cant do anything else.
Shut the machine down via task manager, rebooted and it booted up only for the desktop to be doing this constant flash on and off routine...
Repeated this a few times.... same problem
Tried it in safe mode - same thing
Did a system restore - hoping it was somersetting form the Epson scanner install...... still the same

Now it wont even boot onto the start up screens..... ?????

Any advice, help or assistance would be greatly received!!!!

After clicking OK, the .doc file then opens in Word, apparently with no problems at all (I can edit, save, etc.). So basically the error message seems to be wrong, since the file does open properly.

I can open .doc files from within Word (File -> Open) with no error message.

The issue is more of an annoyance than anything else (since the file eventually opens up just fine), but I imagine it'll just become more irritating as time goes on. Any suggestions on how to resolve it? I've been poking around in the Folder Options -> File Types in Explorer without a clear sense of purpose.

I'm running MS Word 2003 SP3 on Windows XP Service Pack 3. If you need any further info, please let me know.

Thanks for your help!

I am having a BSOD problem whenever I try to open a file in MS Word or MS Excel using the "File Open" menu. This problem also occurs when I try to attach a file to a memo (in email using Internet Explorer) and use the "Browse" button and try to choose a file.
I have attached the zip file using the SF Diagnostic tool provided. My profile also has all the system details as per your recommendations above.
Please help.

I realize there are many posts on this issue. When I click a Word 2007 document in Windows Explorer, I get the message "Windows cannot open the file (path\name) make sure...etc." Word opens but file does not. With Word open, clicking brings up another instance of Word (without file) and same error. Same as other posts on this issue. Issue does not occur with any other files (Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Acrobat, etc.) Happens with only Word extensions (docx, etc.) If I open Word and open the file from inside Word, all is fine.

I tried saving documents in different Word extensions, saving to different locations, but still get the error--only when opening directly from Explorer or Desktop. I have repaired Office 2007 (Ultimate Version), uninstalled Word, reinstalled Word; tried the registry fix posted here and MS site (removing Data reg entry under Word). Used tool posted here to unassociate/reassociate .docs with Word. I reimaged my hard drive using an image from two weeks ago, but apparently it started before that, because I still get the same error. I reset my index and waited for it to regenerate. I'm sure there might be other solutions I've tried, but these are the ones that come to mind.

It is a three-week-old Dell 1545 laptop, 64-bit Vista. Not impossible to live with, but has me stumped. According to all the posts in networld and here, fairly common problem that seems to have no single solution.

If anyone knows of new tips, I'd sure appreciate it.

A:Windows cannot find file path\file name when opening from Windows Explorer

Error is "cannot find (path\name)...before someone yells. Also, thorough scan for malicious software, trojans, etc. Do not have BSPlayer, whatever that is. Also, if I search for the document in the menu, I can't open it from there either.

Opening a file is simple , except when you double click on the file and the search box opens instead of the contents of the file. I have found that when I right click on the file the dropdown box has the search first and then the open next. Can someone help please.
