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.)

I've posted this same topic in the networking forum but I think this subforum might be better. Mods can delete the other one.

Yesterday I read about a new firmware update for my Samsung Galaxy S3, and I decided to install Kies on my laptop so I could get it (for many Galaxy S3 users in the Netherlands that day, Over The Air updates didn't work).

First I tried the browser version of Kies, saw nothing about updates so I downloaded and installed Samsung Kies, but that didn't work either. I watched a help video inside the program which was run with Java (I had to install that too, yet I believed I already had it, but I clicked ok anyway)

I didn't have my USB cable with me to connect my phone to the program and it didn't work via wireless either. So I uninstalled it and tried Kies Mini, that didn't work either so I uninstalled that one too, and then had to reboot.

Wanting to resume my work on a website, I wanted to see how it looked in Chrome, Firefox and IE but noticed NONE of them start up. The process starts and stops in half a second.

Here's a list of things I tried:

1. System Restore up to the point of AFTER installing Samsung Kies (unfortunately I couldn't go back any further)
2. Uninstalled Chrome, Firefox, Samsung Kies, Kies Mini and Java.
3. Reinstalled Chrome, Firefox, Samsung Kies, Kies Mini and Java.
3. Ran Spybot Search and Destroy, found nothing big, no trojans or anything.
4. Deleted as many mentions of the keywords Chrome, Firefox and Kies in... Read more

Because of forum rules we are not allowed to Analise Hijack this logs. Have you tried Revo Uninstaller? Also look into the add-on and exstentions in Firefox and Chrome to see if Kies still installed. If so disable them. Or try Firefox and Chrome in safe mode.

I use to have Kies on my previous pc but it 'died' on me. As the pc was totally dead I couldn't even search for assistance from TSG or any other like you.
So I took it to 'Curries PC world' expecting to shell out to them to fix it, honestly I was quite willing to pay to get back online. Like so many things we attach our selves to, we don't miss it until it's gone. I was gutted to be told there isn't a damn thing that can be done to retrieve the info, personal stuff like addresses, phone numbers and a whole stack of info. The other thing was, when at one point I downloaded Kies, I couldn't make either of my mobiles to connect. What on earth am I doing wrong
Regarding the above, I would really like to hear from anyone who can furnish me with some advice, like if it is possible to remove a hard disk or what ever. I have a new lap top now so it's only the info, not to use it.

The above leads me onto another problem. I had Samsung Kies installed on my old machine, now though I am trying to install it again, I really do need it for photographic records. The snag is, for the life of me I can't recall who I used before,(that last sentence makes no sense does it), but I'm having problems and had to scan twice, to remove, do they call it 'Malware', something that my internet security found, quarantined and advised me that it wasn't good.

Windows8 gives the following problem on start up ......well what's new?

after a short while a Windows warning shield advises "Server Busy" with the following useless information, This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose switch to activate the busy program and correct the problem.

Poor fool me did as the warning shield asked only to be confronted by that magnificently designed Windows start menu that I paid $5 AUD to get rid of and of course there was no program running.

A quick look at task manager showed something interesting. Somehow Samsung Kies had started a tray icon program without being requested to and which does not show up in the tray icon customisation area either which is making some kind of system call. If you end the task the problem goes away, at least for the present.

There have been three updates on the computer that may be responsible one by Microsoft for a driver, one by Nvidia graphics and the final one by Sun Microsystems for java. The problem has only presented itself since these updates and as they were all done in the one session it is not possible for a mere mortal such as myself to pinpoint the exact piece of wizardry responsible.

For those responsible I have taken a few screen shots so they can sit there and laugh and say we gotcha! and for their entertainment are attached.

Anyone in Wizard class is invited to advise me how to get rid of this pain with the least work possible.

Run CHKDSK /R /F from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.

Do this for each hard drive on your system.

When it tells you it can't do it right now - and asks you if you'd like to do it at the next reboot - answer Y (for Yes) and press Enter.

Then reboot and let the test run.

It may take a while for it to run, but keep an occasional eye on it to see if it generates any errors.

See "CHKDSK LogFile" below in order to check the results of the test.
B- Elevated Command Prompt:

Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)

At the top of the Search Box, right click on Cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator"
C-CHKDSK LogFile:

Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Expand the Windows logs heading, then select the Application log file entry.

Double click on the Source column header.

Hi there.

I just recently fixed a blue screen with system_service_exception and bad_pool_header by doing some major updating with Windows Update.

Although all my drivers are up to date, I now get this.

Minidump files can be found here.

Additional information:

The blue screen happened right after I started up Kies to upload some photos.

These blue screens have been happening for some time now, perhaps three days. I tried everything from sfc/scannow to a system startup repair back with the system service exception problem before realizing I only had to let Windows Update do its job. (Last updates had been done on 6.6.2012)

What can I do now? Where does this problem even arise from?

Hi

Recently I purchased a samsung galaxy sII, and I am attempting to connect it to my computer using Samsung Kies, and it is continuously failing to install the MTP driver, and I think this has something to do with the fact that windows update won't offer me any updates whatsoever, or even search for updates.

I recently found that my Win 7 PC was only running Microsofts own default VGA video drivers.
My video is SiS760 on board so I downloaded the only drivers I could find but they were for XP.
On installing I found that whilst everything else seemed as good or better than before when booting Samsung Kies (Samsung Galaxy support software) that the program gave a mixture of readable, distorted and broken display.
If I reinstalled Kies there was no change and the problem was still there. It only went when I reverted to Windows generic video drivers.
Can anyone tell me if there is a correct Win 7 driver for the on-board SiS760 graphics device anywhere as I have hunted and cannot find one.
I have also found that using the generic driver the (atrocious) Windows media player 12 does not allow me to change the brightness/contrast/speed options which I was also hoping would be cured by the correct driver.
As this PC came to me as a 'dumper' when the previous owner screwed up a Windows 7 install I'm not sure if it ever had anything other than the default windows drivers for video.
I don't need a mega fast video card as this PC simply controls and reads data from workbench test gear so I'm not going shell out dosh to stick another card in but it would be nice to have full use of WWP12 as it's apparently not possible to downgrade to WMP11.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:sis760 video + Windows 7 + Samsung Kies problem

Unfourtanently,

You are not going to find a Windows 7 driver for this graphics chipset.
The last release SiS made for that chipset was for 32-bit XP, which meant the laptop you have originally had 32-bit XP on it, and someone tried a Windows 7 upgrade to it (as you said).

If you want full use of the card, reinstall Windows XP on it. That's the only option i'm afraid.

If you press a key when the

Keep your hands off the keyboard during each restart.

Do NOT remove the disc until Windows completely loads after the second restart.

Hi
I have looked through solutions for this issue, but the suggestions don't seem to fix my issue...

I am running Windows 7 SP1 Pro 64-bit on a Dell Optiplex 760, and try to do a clean install of Windows 10, using the ISO file which I downloaded from Microsoft & burnt on to a DVD, and instructions from the tutorial on here, which are very good. I downloaded the correct 64-bit version.

I boot from the DVD, enter my region (UK), and choose custom install, and then my hard drive does not show up on the list of where you would like to install. I have all my USB's unplugged (except keyboard/mouse).

I tried deleting my partions using MiniTool Partition Wizard (bootable DVD), so that the entire disk is unallocated. That didn't fix it. I also tried creating a new partition (NTFS) of the entire drive (to get one Primary NTFS partition). That didn't work. I also tried setting that partition as 'active'. The same.

Before formatting etc, I tried a boot from the Windows 7 install DVD, and the hard drive does show up, unlike the Windows 10 DVD.

Do you think it's an issue with the Windows 10 installer?

I downloaded another version of Win10 from the MS Tech Bench page, but same issue.

After formatting etc, during the Windows 10 boot, I tried another suggestion to open up Command Prompt (Shift + F10), and ran 'diskpart' - and no drives are found. I checked the Bios, and it was there.

So presumably that is the issue. If i ran 'diskpart' with my prior Windows 7 install, diskpart sh... Read more

A:Windows 10 clean install - hard drive doesn't show up before install

Welcome toTenforums, Simon.

I am a little concerned that the Windows 10 setup program on DVD does not have drivers to properly see and interrogate the system on your PC so that the hard drive is visible. It's the second similar case on this forum that I've seen recently. You also seem to be trying to clean install on an empty PC - is this correct, because if you do so It will not activate.

After much to-ing and fro-ing, it was finally possible to *copy the Sources folder from the setup ISO file onto a partition on the hard drive, and run the setup from there, where it wasn't possible to boot from the DVD, even though it worked elsewhere.

If you still have Windows 7 installed (and you should do for Windows 10 activation purposes - if just to obtain a genuine ticket for digital entitlement), and you have the ISO download available, the solution is fairly simple. If you haven't you will need the Windows 7 key to activate the install.

You seem pretty PC savvy so, I'd ask you to follow the bolded instructions from the * in the 5th para above.

HI, I just installed windows 2000 professional onto my computer. Everything works fine except that the resolution is really grainy. On some web sites I cannot even make out what the words are. I found out that when I go into my monitor settings in display properties I am unable to install the drivers for my monitor. Does anybody know a way in which I can get around this.
 

A:monitor drivers unable to install on fresh windows 2000 install

Are you really referring to the monitor drivers or the Dispay Adapter drivers?The symptoms you describe sound like the latter issue.

Monitor drivers are no big deal to install, and even if you don't, Windows should use compatible plug and play drivers. Still it's a good idea to install them -- but you get them from the Monitor vendor site. You get the Display Adapter drivers from the Display Adaptor vendor's site.

What Display Adapter model do you have? And are they properly installed?

To install a Monitor driver, you download and unzip the .inf file from the Vendor. Then you select "update driver" and browse to the location of the file you unzipped. Once installed your Monitor should be recognized by model number.

The most likely suspect is a bad video chip.

Now it could be a power related problem too, or heat, but if you have used good parts and a cool case and have tried multiple versions of the driver then it starts looking like hardware failure is likely.

Who makes your 550W power supply?

Double check all of your connections.
And you could go into the UEFI/BIOS and reset all defaults - don't do any tweaking until this problem is resolved.
Is that board running the most recent version of the BIOS?

A:Vista SP2 will not Install(error 0x80070002),In Place Upgrade Repair Install

Hello Steven, and welcome to Vista Forums.

With the problems that you are having, I would recommend that you backup anything that you do not want to lose and do a clean install instead. This way you will not have to worry about remnants of your previos installation messing with your new installation. After installing Vista with SP1, I would recommend installing the SP2 also. It may be best to only install a few updates at a time, or one a time for the ones that require a restart, to avoid them possible conflicting with each other during the restart.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

A friend, who is new to computers, came by with an old Compaq Presario Notebook (running Vista) to have me take a look at it and maybe install some software. We decided it might be fun to load up with Ubuntu. I have successfully loaded Ubuntu on other machines before.

So we decided to do a full install- getting rid of Vista completely. Unfortunately the system wouldn't let me load it - it simply hangs 90% through the Ubuntu install. I tried it multiple times using different install CDs- and it hung in same place each time. Of course in the process, Vista was wiped off the machine.

Unable to load Ubuntu, I decided to switch gears and install Window XP (I have an old MS Student version that has never been "activated"). It seemed as if the install is going along fine, until it too finally hangs- saying I don't have a hard drive, or the system can't find the hard drive. I was able to run the system diagnostics on the machine and of course it shows there is NO issues with the hard drive whatsoever.

Now my friend really needs his computer running, and i feel terrible that I screwed it up. If anyone out there knows what the heck might be going on, I can avoid digging up money out of my own pocket to bring it in to a shop to diagnose.

Some notes:
- System is Presario c700 notebook - bios version F.07 1.46 1024mb ram
- Vista was running just fine on it yesterday - no apparent issues except the fan runs continuously

There are many people here that prefer KillDisk also - whichever one will do the same thing for you.

Originally I set it to install and walked away came back hours later so I wasn't at the pc watching things. Anyways I managed to damage some files or something and for whatever reasons i could not figure out how to repair them. The microsoft forum was a bust no even one person tried to help me so I got sick of waiting and deleted the partition on the drive and made a new one and formatted it within the installer loaded from boot of the vista CD. That part went fine and quick. However when arriving at the step where its expanding files it took almost an hour before it spun up the CD and began increasing beyond 0%. From there up to 5% at best increases (avg 3%) then the CD spins down and idles for at least several minutes and then spins up gets a little farther and repeat. Basically the amount of time its just sitting there is probably 20 times or more longer than the time its actually progressing. Why is this? Is it supposed to do that? It seems odd to me that it wouldn't just keep spinning the CD and continuously progressing. Especially on a system with a dual core 3.2 ghz and 2GB of ram installs should zip through no time at all. I'm sure the install will be done before anyone replies but i thought I would check here in case its something I should be concerned about as a possible problem with my system.

I have no idea what is going on. Whenever I try to install all of the Windows updates it blue screens. Then it will reboot, try to apply the updates, and blue screen again. I've run Linux Server 12.04 on this machine just fine, so I'm fairly certain it's not a hardware issue. Also, this build is brand new (built it a few weeks ago)

Thanks for your time!

I had a run-in with MS Office 2007 that ended up (my bad I'm sure) necessitating a repair install of Windows 7 (64 bit) after a complete uninstall of Office. The Windows repair went well with the exception of a couple of drivers; easily adjusted.

Then I did a clean install of Office 2007. It sort of went well. Except that every time I try to do something with it (like accessing Visual Basic to put my macros back in), it's telling me - incessantly - that files don't have sufficient permission blah, blah. Well, I'm setting the permissions but it's over and over and feels like every file in "Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/..." needs permission attention.

Is there ANY way to avoid doing this over and over and over and...? And could I have avoided this by setting something different in one of the installs?

Sigh.

Thanks as always for the help.

I've been extremely frustrated with both the screen flickering and crashing during sleep issues.  I figured before I buy a laptop from another company that I would at least try a reformat. I was expecting devices to not be fully installed after the reformat but Device Manager does not show any issues.  PC is also running fine besides the fact that the trackpad doesn't right click properly and the resolution is off which probably can be addressed by installing the proper drivers.  What else should I install, though?

A:Yoga 2 Pro - fresh install of Windows 10 - what should we install from Lenovo's download page?

Download/install Lenovo System Interface Foundation for Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit)...IdeaPad.... That should install, among other things, Lenovo Vantage (ex-Companion.) Use its System Update function to find drivers/updates, download and install them on your system. You don't have to install everything but if you have "screen flickering and crashing during sleep issues" then I'd make sure to at least get the latest chipset, display, video, power management, etc. drivers.
 
P.S. If you suspect that particular driver(s) may be causing issues, then install them one at a time to identify which one(s) are bad.

Tried installing the same software on different computer also running Windows XP SP3 and on a machine running Vista and install accomplished correctly. Have tried scanning with Norton both desktop version and Norton Power Eraser run from the internet that is supposed to scan more completely and neither found any malware or rootkit problems. There is an ATI video card on the computer but we have never installed any parental controls software for it and have no children in the house who need parental controls! When the Norton internet scan ran, it identified 4 files associated with the .NET framework as files that it couldn't identify as either good or bad. Could that make the install program work incorrectly? There don't seem to be any other problems with the computer.

Hi

My laptop has two particitions, C and D. C seems to have quite some bad sectors. Ran chkdsk yesterday for whole day and it marked out some bad sectors.

Now when I do fresh install to drive C, installation cannot complete. Once copying from DVD is over, I can pass the "starting windows" screen but then it loads the blue desktop and an error pop up saying windows was not installed successfully and try to restart. But this just keeps going in circles and never finishes.

I also tried to install OS on D, without formatting D, but ended up with the same situation.

What I am trying now is to back up everything on D and redo the disk partitioning and try again.

But because 1) i do not have an OS now and 2) i cannot install windows on C, the only option I have for backing up is using the command line window during the installation to copy files from D to an external usb disk.

I am using "xcopy /S" and that is extremely slow, driver D has 180G of data...

All the other threads about using robocopy etc tools does not apply here because i do not even have an OS.

So my question is if there is any way I can do the copying/backup faster?

Thanks

A:Win7 install - fast copy/backup during install (harddisk failure)

Get Macrium reflect free on the pc your typing this from and have it make a usb recovery disk when it asks you too then boot to it on the laptop with your external drive also plugged in and then have it make an image of the d partition to your external. You can then erase both partitions in the windows installer and make a fresh one. When it is done you can install Reflect on the laptop and then you can mount that image with it for file transfer back. But if your install is failing it might be your disk is just to far gone at this point in which case you should image your data so you have it anyways.

I have a Latitude E6420 running Windows 7. I installed a larger hard drive today and put the original (working) drive in an external USB enclosure. I wanted a clean install of Windows 7 on the new drive so rather than use a drive migration utility I used the Dell Operating System Reinstallation DVD. When it was done I discovered that it didn't install any drivers. The network drivers aren't installed, so I can't download the drivers from the internet, and I don't have the Dell Driver Reinstallation CD.
1) Is there a way to use the Recovery Partition on the old drive (now in the external enclosure) to do a factory fresh install on the new drive?
or (maybe even better)
2) Is there somewhere I can download an .iso file for the second E6420 recovery disk (containing Drivers/Factory-installed Apps?)
or (least desirable)
3) What drivers would I need to download (on another computer) and manually transfer/install to the E6420 via an external USB drive so I can connect over Wifi to download the rest of the drivers directly onto the E6420?
Thanks for your help!

Dear jedijunk, Recovery option works only when old hdd it is in laptop. You do not have readily available .iso file with factory installed drivers. Drivers for Latitude E6420 available in dell support site, download them in another computer, then copy to new hdd, then perform installation.
But the easiest & simple method is to fix the old hdd in laptop, use Hiren Boot CD or any other Disk Image Utility, copy the C:\ drive (of old hdd) disk image in another partition of old hdd, then remove old hdd & fix new hdd in laptop, use restore the disk image to new hdd.

Hello everyone. first off, thanks for taking the time to consider my problem.

i know this is quite a redundant issue, thank you for your patience.

First off this is a newly built computer, all fresh components. after cleaning/activating the hdd via shift +f10 at win7 setup,(which took me a day to figure out) i was very excited to see my hdd available for win7 installation. as i proceed windows does its thing, after installing its time for the first restart. it restarts right back to the initial windows 7 setup. ive done a lot of research, and majority of the problems seem to be the boot priority in bios. so i made sure that it was usb-hdd, then hard drive. (win7 on flash drive for me, no dvd burner available). still the same thing, right back to initial setup. i tried maybe to remove the flash drive during the 10 second countdown to restart, but when it restarts, the windows splash screen comes up and then blue screens and restarts real quick. cant see what the error is on bsod,

there have been a couple different start up issues, "windows did not start properly" "select version of windows to start from" (or something to that effect.) but its all the same outcome. windows 7 just wont finish installation.

i know this flash drive works cuz i used it to upgrade on my gf's laptop. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

thanks.

This problem starts very quickly right at the very beginning of the installation process. I haven't seen anything on acers website like a bios upgrade or anything to fix this issue. Anyone else seen this issue and have any way around it? BTW, Linux installed just fine. Just not windows. The Windows CD works fine too.

A:Trying to install Windows XP on Acer Aspire 3000 install fails

Hi,

I just had the same problem on an Acer Veriton Desktop. I had installed Linux on the machine and then wanted to revert to XP Pro.

I managed to get XP reinstalled eventually but took a while to figure out what was causing it. Turns out it was because the hard drive was formatted into 'ext3' by Linux. I am not sure yet why this caused a problem so early in the XP setup but it did. I took the drive out of the machine and put it in another I had, formatted it back to NTFS and created a Primary partition on it. Put it back in the Acer and ran XP setup and it worked straight away.

Hope this helps others who have the same problem in the future.
