Preferred Solution: extremly messed up pc please help

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.)

3GB of RAM would be 3072MB, video is using 256MB (1MB unaccounted for)
You need to increase the RAM to 4GB. Even though a 32 bit version of Windows can only use about 3.5MB, you will notice the increse.
I've made sure all our Windows 7 computers are running 4GB. I've talked a friend into buying more RAM so two of his slow computers would be peppier. He has noticed the difference.

As far as Java, MS discontinued java with Windows 2000. You should not have MS JVM on a windows 7 computer.

I recently got SP2 for XP Pro, and it screwed up my comp horribly. After installing XP Pro (from XP Home) all settings and everything were destroyed. However, when placing some icons back on the desktop, they became jumbled. I stopped putting things on the start menu and desktop until I can get this fixed. Thanks. (I had a few other errors as well. IE and OE were missing, and 2 DLLs were gone. Those I have fixed though.)

Try downloading TweakUI from here on the Microsoft Website. There is a function inside it which will repair your icons. See if this helps.

My son accidentially bumped into my laptop that was on the table and it fell on the floor. When I turned it on all I saw was color damage to the screen. The color damage appears in cracks, but there are no physical cracks on the outside of the screen itself. How much does this cost to fix? How much is the cheapest warranty if that is the best and cheapest way to go?

When charging, the fan gets so loud, that the laptop cant be used in the library or the office, even if im offline and only using MS-Office. Does anyone have the same problem with the L380?

Hi, I brought a new laptop a few months ago and recieved it pre-set up despite asking them not to. When I got it home I discovered that the laptop was incredible noisy, it sounds like the fan is going constantly despite me not having anything open, then turns into a constant clicking noise. I returned it the next day as it wouldnt stop, and again asked for the replacement not to be pre-set up, only for them to give me another one that was. Unfortunately this makes exactly the same noise after a few months of using it, and I was wondering 1) what is it and can I stop it? 2) What are my rights about returning it as it is not damaged, just loud? I ask this because the noise makes it incredibly dificult to study for uni.Thanks for your help

Dell Latitude w/ Windows XP, 25% free space. Most time it is extremly slow (like today), while other times it moves along at a respectable speed. The only thing that seems to help is running Lavasoft (just ran and did a complete restart) but not always. It took me about 1.5 hrs to login to techguy, print the Welcome Guide (oh that was painful), get registered, etc. then do a quick search in the forums b-4 posting this question.

I believe there are a lot of programs/applications running in the background that could be removed but I do not know what is required to stay running. Am I barking up the wrong tree or will this speed up things?

The laptop sets beside a Jurasik (sp?) Park model (Windows 98) desktop that won't die and just keeps plugging away at top speed. I need the same from my laptop.

Any suggestions appreciated (and please be specific on actions to perform as I am an end user, not a tech head). Thanks...

Hello, I am having some rather serious issues with my computer and my friend advised me to post a thread here.

Last night I was playing some Il-2 multiplay with my friends, and then I suddenly got a "C+++ Windows Visual library error" then an immediate black screen and a freeze. So I hard rebooted my system and was greated by a pixelated windows splash screen with several lines of dots running up and down the screen at random intervals. After trying to reboot several times to no avail, I entered BIOS and restored my computer to factory settings and then it booted back into regular XP. Keep in mind that this entire time there where lines and dots randomly placed on the screen. Thinking I had fixed the problem I went and played some Bf1942 where I got another graphics error and then a physical memory dump. After a quick restart I again tryed Il-2, only to have graphics artifacts and glitches, I exited the game and then my computer gave me a nice black screen. At this point I left it until today and went to bed. Earlier this afternoon I booted up to the same pixelated windows screen, and then a black screen where I couldnt load Xp. I took the video in and out and it seemed to fix the problem...for the moment. Being the absolute genious I am, I figured to test Il-2 again, only to have the same C+++ error and then a black screen/crash. However this time neither restoring settings or pulling the card in and out would work. I managed to get it to load into s... Read more

A:Extremly odd windows issue

My guess is that the Video Card is fried, and it may have corrupted some other data on the way out. Best thing to do is borrow a Video Card and see if that solves your Video problems, but don't be suprised if certain apps (and maybe even Windows itself) fail to fuction properly.

Another angle is to install your Video Card in another computer and see if it works or not. Between these two, you should have a pretty good idea of what you are dealing with.

Hi, recently my computers motherboard fried (after 2 years of having it) So i thought, bout time i updated so i ordered the following parts:

EVGA e-GeForce 8600 GTS 512MB PCI-E, DVI Video Graphics Card

OCZ 1GB Gold Edition Memory DDR3 1066MHz PC3-8500 CL 7-7-7-21 Dual Channel Gold Layered Z3 XTC Heatspreader

Intel CPU Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 95W Energy Efficient 2.4GHz SLACR G0 Stepping

Asus Motherboard P5K3 Deluxe WiFi Intel P35 LGA775 Core2 Quad / Core2 Extreme / Core2 Duo PCI-E DDR3 Pure Copper Heat Pipe & Stack ATX (DDR3 Only)

And installed Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit and i am experiancing very very poor performance, it strugles sometimes to even have IE open let alone a game which i am deeply into. On my old pc was a OEM version of XP SP2 home and it could run fine lots of processes, games and music all at once but vista jsut doesnt seem right.

Ive turned off all the aero glass and such and set the system to performance over looking pritty because i dont care really what it looks like as along as i can use my programes.

the only thing I can think of is have you updated all the drivers for the motherboard?
is there any other hardware installed?

can you run the Performance Information tool to see what your base score is

I've recently updated to Vista Ultimate(About 1 month ago) and I hadn't installed any games for it. I put 3DMark05 on this machine for the heck of it as I was going to use it on an older system.

I ran it but never completed as it was so terribly slow. I was getting between 6-13 fps which is ridiculous. I thought ok..what ever. So I install Assassins Creed, not to my amazement it was so laggy, I could barely move. Even in options, the mouse took forever to get to the other side of the screen. So now I'm wondering if it's my Graphics card or Vista Ultimate.

Specs:

AMD Athlon 64x2 5200+ 2.7(OC To 3Ghz)
4Gb RAM
Nvidia 7300Gt 256mb graphics Card
Samsung SyncMaster 2032gw
Seagate 160gb SATA HD
400w psu
BioStar T7025-M2 MotherBoard

I've updated all the drivers as far as I can tell, so only thing I can think of is Graphics Card or Ultimate?

Anything I need to add?

Thanks for any help.

Hi there:
3 days ago when I was trying to download a Tv show episode from http://thepiratebay.org/ (I won't do it again in a long time :() with uTorrent my computer froze, I restarted and when I oppened uTorrent my computer froze again. Then I scanned my drive for malware and norton found a backdoor thing and a tracing cookie; it deleted both. Then my internet speed went from 2Mbps to .2Kbps (ridiculous). And said that I had no connection (wireless). I reset de modem, reinstalled drivers etc. but nothing worked. I am writing this on my ubuntu partition. I even formatted the vista partition with windows 7 RC 64bit and the problem was solved, then, when I moved my files from the windows.old folder. my internet speed went to .2Kbps again! (on vista). I did ipconfig/release,renew and it said it cannot proceed because the specified file could not be found? that was weird.

Those programs do not work in my OS; Anyways the problem solved by itself.

Hi
Thanks firstly for taking the time to read my issue.

My PC (originally running Windows 7) was running really slow, it would sometimes take 5 minuets to action a mouse click (IE close an app, click a button etc) I did what I could with my Norton AV but after 5 days I couldn't get to the bottom of this issue. I eventually ran CCleaner, didn't help, ran windows update. This started with over 100 updates as I had turned live update off. Got down to one file which wouldn't update.

Last update I decided to try and update to Windows10. Hoping it could repair the issue.

I have also tried running the MS Malicious Software Removal Tool but because if the go slow issue it does not get to complete a scan before stalling & eventual reluctant reboot. It will perform a quick scan without crashing but that only finds one infected file (No idea what the file is from MRT) Even when running a full scan, before it locks up it says it has found 3 infected files so I figure a full scan is in order.

One last note: I called Norton help line & after remote operating my PC for a few minutes the guy informed me I had a rundll.exe file that was causing the issue. He said it was disabling a lot of things on my PC. Unfortunately the same guy then went on to try and skin me of AU$400 to help fix the problem. Sorry but I don't have $400. I have a sick PC and hope fading fast.

I have learnt several things from this. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!

this has never happoned before, it started when i was installing a game called "Tactical Intervention" its a first person shooter, online, its not a disk game, its one you download and install, i even uninstalled it and deleted all files that came with it and my audio is still crackling and shuts off, no sound yet still crackles, i did not turn the sound off, the sound just stops and i still hear the crackling sound, its sounds like a crappy tv with crappy reseption, i searched up the problem and found others having same problem, so i followed what helped someone else but it did not help me, i uninstalled the realtek hd audio and reinstalled it, that did not fix it, so i regestered to the forums where i found that possible fix and here i am, looking for help, i have this feeling that nothing is going to help, in my life time, i have had, maybe 3 times success with help, the other 99% of the time i look for help, i get ignored, helped but in the end it does not work/fix the problem and then ignored, other times people just say they don't know and can not help, so i hope i get get help here.

my OS is vista home premium 32bit, pc is an HP, im using hdmi connection ofr video and audio because thats all i got, idk what else to tell ya, ill be stairing at this page refeshing it every minute, if i can even wait that long, untill someone helps, i am angery but i am respectful to others so please don't think that ill be saying bad stuff, can't wait for help on this matter, ...

A:Sound is crackling, extremly Annoying!

You're not being ignored. Everybody in the forum is a volunteer and has their own personal life so, instant gratification is not guaranteed.

Have you tried a system restore to before you installed the software?

I was recently infected with some kind of Trojan, and other malicious items. Description of infection - I was nearly always using 100% of my cpu, I had confirmed threats running (nsvc32.exe etc... That one is still running, actually. AVG wont do anything about it. I just stopped it in Task Mannager.) on Task Manager. I deleted Mozzila Firefox because that is where the download originated. I then went to System Restore to fix the problem the easy way, and when I looked, all of my restore points had been deleted. After a quick panic attack, I thought that I would be able to go into IE and find solutions, but as soon as I tried, IE closed. This happened every time. I then went on my moms laptop and Google searched each process running. I ended the ones that were confirmed threats, and then turned them off in the startup programs menu. I had Ad-Aware installed, so I ran a scan. It was working for a minute or two, when my computer all of a sudden re-started. It did this every time I attempted a scan. After a prolonged panic attack, i grabbed a flash drive and downloaded AVG with my moms Laptop. I installed it and ran a full scan, and deleted all the threats. I then did another one just to be sure. So far, my performance has for the most part been fixed, except for one thing. The internet connection is the slowest Ive ever seen. It would probably be considered bad in 1987. Right now, i can download at 400-500 bp/s. I used to be DL'ing at 79 Kbp/s, or so. The browser itself is f... Read more
