I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A:Next Round for an older mech engineer vs malware.

Hi and Welcome!!   
 
My name is Jeff. I would be more than happy to take a look at your malware results logs and help you with solving any malware problems you might have. Logs can take a while to research, so please be patient and know that I am working hard to get you a clean and functional system back in your hands. I'd be grateful if you would note the following:
The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for the issues on this machine.
It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
If you happen to have a flash drive/thumb drive please have that ready in the event that we need to use it.
Please be sure to subscribe to the topic if you have not already done so.
IMPORTANT NOTE : Please do not delete, download or install anything unless instructed to do so.DO NOT use any TOOLS such as Combofix or HijackThis fixes without supervision. Doing so could make your system inoperable and could require a full reinstall of your operating system and losing all your programs and data.
 
Having said that....     Let's get going!!  
----------
 Could you tell me a little bit about the problems that you are experiencing with your computer?  
 
Are you having any malware related problems??

Hi,

I have had some assistance on another forum for an infection of my system but am told that no more malware can be detected. My system still does not allow me to connect to the internet and is incredibly sluggish to the point where many programs just won't respond. To catch you up I have run Malwarebytes, SDFix, HijackThis and RSIT. I would be happy to run whatever would be helpful and post logs. I have received no advice on how to proceed if the virus has been removed and my system doesn't function properly. I was hoping that maybe there were some tools that could detect missing critical files or notify of broken connections that were in need of repair. Just looking for some direction at this stage as I don't know what to do. Let me know where you'd like to start and I'll be happy to work with you. I have a functioning laptop that I can load programs and burn discs from to get things onto the troubled one.

Thanks

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 on a Compaq Presario F700 Notebook w/ 2 GB RAM.Several weeks ago, after launching a link on Facebook, I my laptop was taken over by Windows System Repair rootkit. I was able to reboot in safe mode and run Malwarebytes and get back control of my laptop but have been having continuous problems. Right after running malarebytes I started having Multiple Iexplore.exe processes running invisibly, causing audio clips of commercials, such as Slim Jim commercials and other random ads and a sports broadcast from 2010.

Hello,

I've been unable to access my custom build computer since around 5:00 yesterday. I chose to restart my computer at around that time just because it was slowing up a little and I usually do that to help, I had not installed any updates or new programs since 2 days ago when there had been a few windows updates.

Upon returning to my computer I noticed that it had been unable to startup and had gone straight into system repair with it being 'unable to repair this computer automatically.' I rebooted several times and noticed that it was not a visible BSOD but as soon as the 'starting windows' icon began to appear it went straight into startup repair. I tried to boot into safe mode, tried to load previous good configuration and all of the other advanced recovery options (including system restore/image and many command prompts).

This is what it shows after being unable to repair automatically:

Problem signature name:Startup repair offline

I have decided recently to create a system repair disc in case something goes wrong with my computer. Using recdisc.exe, I created a system repair disc and everything worked out fine. Once I booted with the repair disc, I got a screen that looks like this:
This is what I wanted

I decided to make a recovery USB as well for convenience. (USB is much faster and is less bulky than a regular DVD)

I copied everything in the DVD, and pasted in my USB (the USB is an active and a primary partition). When I boot into the USB however, I do not get the System Recovery Options screen, but the HP Recovery Manager screen. I personally dislike HP recovery manager and want to get the Windows System Recovery Options screen.

If I try to close the HP Recovery Manager, a dialog pops up asking if it should close HP Recovery Manager and reboot. Can someone tell me if I did something wrong to create the USB Recovery drive? I don't know what I did wrong, I copied everything from the disc (which works perfectly) to the USB (which suddenly decided not to work.) In case anyone was wondering, the HP Recovery Manager looks like this:

I don't know if this is relevant, but the CD drive is first in my boot order. Once I have a repair CD in my computer, it automatically loads. For me to access the USB, I have to manually boot into the USB using BIOS. Thanks for reading.

I have a Packard Bell easynote (TM98-GN-030UK), and have had it since Christmas.

On Wednesday, it failed to startup, flashing a quick blue screen and then immediately rebooting. Therefore I cannot get information from the blue screen.
The startup repair option goes to a default blue screen with green nature-y bits. It loads no options, even if I leave it for an hour.

I have tried the system repair disk. It goes to the same background, asks for my language/keyboard settings, and then when I click 'next' again does nothing.

So, I cannot access any kind of repair or restore options as neither does anything beyond show me the default background.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (probably a driver).

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

Recently questions were raised as to what functions are available on the System Repair CD - Create that Windows 7 will create and burn to a CD.



These clips are are from a 32 bit CD I made:
Insert the CD in the CD / DVD drive and reboot the computer.
When requested, "Hit any key to boot from CD."

Select the Language and click next.



Windows will search for an Operating System to repair.



You can choose to restore a System Image you created,
or go the Recovery Tools screen.



These are the same utilities available through the Install DVD,
or via the function of the 100 MB System Partition (if installed).



Tapping the F8 key before Windows loads (Safe Mode) opens this menu:



Selecting "Repair Your Computer" also opens the "System Recovery Options" menu,
but requires a password to proceed.

I am almost done with my associates degree in Computer Networking. So I am not a total noob at this, but my friend's computer has me stumped. Here's the scenario.

They have a wireless network. The router and modem is upstairs, with a mac connected to it. Downstairs are two pcs, both wireless. Things have been working for about 7 months just fine. Then, the other day both the wireless computers couldn't get on the internet. Running an ipconfig shows both computers still on the network. Both computers were able to ping each other and the router. I released the ip addresses and renewed them, DHCP server works fine, issued them the ip address. Both were once again connected to the network, able to ping the router. Still can't get on the internet though. I checked the access lists, which I set up for them 7 months ago so just their computers can get on. Nothing has changed, their mac addresses are still the only ones that can get on.

So I got rid of the access list anyway. Same thing, computers are on the network but can't access the internet. Shut encryption off on everything, nothing changes. Reset router to factory settings. Nothing changed.

So, has anyone encountered this before. I am completely stumped. The computers are on the network, they can ping each other, ping the router, but the wireless pc's cannot access the internet, only the directly connected computer can. Signal Strength is excellent.

Confirm with the Dell engineer if your Vista recovery disc is just for the Windows OS only or if it also has all of the needed drivers and programs that came bundled on the computer. If it was Windows only and it was my computer, I would would be insisting that Dell supply me for free with any other recovery discs needed to restore the computer to full factory fresh conditions.

Fast forward less than 48 hours since bringing the system home and it's freezing up again. Any suggestions would be appreciated since they claim it's not hardware. 

A:Windows 10 System freezing, warranty repair claims system is fine

Hi Iroc24,
What anti-virus and other security are you using? I presume that the repair shop made sure your Windows 10 has all updates.  As far as other applications, have you checked to see if any of the software that the shop removed, returned with automatic updates? Do the freezes happen when you are working offline or while using a browser?

1)i open the system recovery and i create one also i go to settings and  i put maximum use 3%(7gb)
but every time i reboot or next day i cant find my system recovery,its deleted.......
 
 
2)i cant create a dvd for repair system,i click on create disk repair and next,and says that there are some missing files........

A:system recovery deleted every time + cant create system repair disk

1.  You're actually talking about two separate things here.  Item #1 is "restore points", not system recovery.  This restores your system back to point "X" in time.
2.  The second item is "system recovery", with recovers the system to factory specs.
The system recovery, which is usually a partition on your computer.  If this partition is damaged, removed, or files are corrupted, you have only two basic choices:
1.  Order recovery DVDs from the manufacturer; or
2.  Purchase a boxed copy of the OS, and download the drivers from the manufacturer's website.
Have a great day!

Madam / Sir, on my Lenovo SFF   desktop 510s-08ISH- 90FN00BYIN I have three sata ports for 3drives. There are 2 drives pre installed. These drives get power from a cable with two sata power connectors and are connected to the motherboard with a 4 pin plug. Can this 4 pin power connector on motherboard support 3drives ??Regards John

I was awoken with a phone call from an Indian supposed "Microsoft Engineer in the Technical department" telling me that my PC was generating and sending out enormous amounts of files and that I should get onto my PC in order for them to freely provide me with tools to eradicate my supposedly bad files causing this. Going onto my PC, I was "shown" (Told how to run it) the Event Viewer (Never previously used by myself). It showed 100's of ERROR reports that gave some credence to their statements. I did not realise at the time that these were merely common errors reported by the system. I later deleted them after finding out how to. A security-conscious individual of many years I am ALWAYS sceptical of such phone calls but sadly this time I decided that I may indeed be speaking to a Microsoft engineer and must allow them access or perhaps my PC would indeed be a major problem in a week's time. According to the con man my PC would close down eventually and I would be unable to retrieve any of my files again as the PC would not boot. I felt uneasy and still being rather sleepy, I was unsure as to his chat. Taken in by his speil I suspected a scam, especially since it was an Indian speaking and experience of bad business with such warned me off, but I felt that I may indeed be causing a problem to the Internet world and foolishly decided to allow them access to my PC. Once decided, they gained access via a software programme which they downloaded (Teamvi... Read more

I will be starting the first year electrical engineering program at my university next semester. I don't know much about computers. I just want your opinion on what model of laptop would be able to perform good with engineer-related software. I really don't want to break the bank but any opinion would be great.

P.S. I hear that lenovo is good but I'm not sure what kind of features I should customize it with.

Thanks for your time

My workflow is normally Solidworks, ANSYS, Matlab, and some other engineering software. I prioritized single core processing effeciency, and the GPU, so I ordered the following:2.8 GHz Intel Core Xeon E-2276M Six-Core64GB DDR4 | 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD15.6" HDR 400 FHD 1920 x 1080 IPS ScreenNVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 Max-Q (16GB)So, a few questions: i.) It was hard for me to say no the the 8-core i9 as a gear nerd, I know the benefits of more cores. Would be interested in hearing feedback on if any performance differences between my setup and the i9 would even be noticable other than on a benchmark test? ii.) I wanted the 16GB VRAM in the GPU, so that was a factor in why I went with the GTX 5000. I am a bit ignorant to how hungry software are on resources, and where we are in technology today if 16GB VRAM is even utilized and beneficial? Are we a bit ahead of time with this one or is it worth having? Would my engineering software benefit from and utilize the additional VRAM? I know work load of course is a factor but please answer as best as you can. iii.) I was worried about the thermals with the i9 and even having a RTX 4000 paired with it. As we know the RTX 5000 is not offered with the i9. Am I ignorant in saying the setup I went with will have lower thermals and a more reliable and consistent performnce curve than any of the i9 iterations? iv.)

A:Just purchased a P53, have a few questions (Mechanical Engineer)

Fellow ME here. I work in the AEC industry and my work loads benefit the most from a few fast CPU cores. Autocad, for example, was optimal on up to 8 cores, and the user consensus was that you could get by with a decent gaming GPU (as opposed to an expensive workstation version). As I remember (and I haven't touched ANSYS and Matlab in more than 10 years), what you're using is very heavily bound by the CPU. Puget Systems has some Solidworks benchmarks that may highlight this. I got the Core i7 9850H with the Quadro T2000 and 32 GB RAM (16 GB from the factory, bought a matching stick and installed it myself afterwards) and two NVME SSDs (but my projects are on an external HDD, so these don't help as much). I'm satisfied with my decision. Back in August, when I ordered the laptop, there weren't any options for custom configurations. I would have liked the Xeon paired with the T2000, but it doesn't seem like this is an option even now. The 8 core i9 seemed very appealing, but I had to remind myself time and again that:- Turbo is no substitute for base clock, as much as the marketing hype says otherwise- I don't need as many cores (I upgraded from a 2c/4t Core i7 with a 2.8 GHz base clock and a 3.2 GHz turbo, and the actual speed in single threaded loads is not that different)- The price was better (paid for it myself), and the difference went into accessories (dock, cooling pad, RAM, additional USB hub, new carrying case). I'm not sure how much of a benefit the RTX5000...

I am currently having a problem with my video in Pro/Engineer Wildfire and AutoCAD 2004. In both of these drafting programs, the cursor skips when it is moving across the screen. It is not solid like it should be.

The computer is a Pentium 4 1.7 Ghz, 256 MB RAM, 36.4 SCSI hard drive, 32MB Matrox Millenium Video G450 video card and a Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2 OS. There was no problem before I upgraded this computer from Windows NT 4 workstation. In NT4 the video was flawless. Certainly not in XP.

When I upgraded the computer, I installed the newest drivers. When I noticed the problem, I rolled the driver back to its previous version which did not work. I also have the video card set to full hardware acceleration. I have swapped the current video card with one just like it with no luck. I do not have a better video card to put in the machine.

Why would the video perform flawlessly in Pro/Engineer and AutoCAD 2004 while in a Windows NT 4 environment, but be skipping around in the same programs in a Windows XP Pro SP2 environment? Would a video card with more memory solve the problem? Are there any other steps I could try to troubleshoot and find a solution to this problem? Any advice I could get on this problem would be great.

Thank you.

A:Power supply question for an engineer

Should not be a issue. Drives these days do not use a lot of power. Only real concerns for power supplies these days is graphic cards and CPU's. If you Google PSU calculator you should be able to enter in all your information and get a correct answer.
