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.)

Blamed on Netio.sys, it usually means your malware app. I would remove McAffe and replace with Microsot Security essentials at least to test.

How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee consumer products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe)

The BCC suggests
Best advice that I've seen about this error (from here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post356791 )





Quote:
What you're looking for will be in one of the following categories:

a) BIOS bug
b) a driver whose activity is causing the target processor to lock up
c) a hardware defect (temperature, voltage, dust, RFI, outright borkedness...)


So, check the drivers
Then check the inside of the case (temperature, voltage, dust, etc).
Then run some hardware stress tests






Quote:
Try this free video stress test: http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/
Try this free stress test: Free Software - GIMPS





Quote:
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.





Then try replacing parts.
Then look up the versions of your BIOS to see what changes were done.

Hey guys,

Okay I've searched thoroughly for this but could not find an aswer to this problem I'm having on my laptop.

Config is:

HP Pavilion DV2530EA
2.1 years old system
Vista Home Premium OEM on it, SP2
2 GB RAM

I've had a BSOD twice now within the last month. After the first one, I had to do a complete re-install as system files were damaged. I thought it must've been some virus, but apparently it's not, as I've done a new install and it happened again. This time so far it's seems ok after the reboot though.

The funny thing is that the system running extremely well otherwise - there are no other problems, slowdowns, freezes, hangs, nothing like that.

Here's what I was doing just before the BSOD: (on both occasions, the circumstances were EXACTLY the same!)

-I was surfing the net with IE8
-other programs running in the background: utorrent, Total Commander, Notepad

As I say, both times I was doing the same: reading some forum in IE8 with exactly the same apps running in the background and then suddenly bang!

I could not read the bluescreen message, as it moved on to the reboot too quickly.

The only things I caught were something like:

...check for updates for you BIOS...
...dumping physical memory to disk...

I don't know if that helps.

Here's the message I got after the reboot (unfortunately I don't have the message or the dump from the first BSOD).

It seems to me that the memory might be in question here or overheating. Do a memtest and let it run overnight. It will tell you if there is a problem with your memory or not.

It it is overheating, check your processor temps. You can see those in the Bios (del, f10 or f12 depending on make and model). If it is above 90 degrees, then you are running hot and it is time to get your heatsink/cooling system a thorough look through.

Hello
I ran a program on my computer called PC booster and forgot to back up my settings.
Now I can't use Real player or Windows media player.Also when I try to open a folder that I have with more than 7 gb,I am sent back to the desktop without the icons.It seems that explorer with the new settings installed by PC booster cannot handle that particular folder.
If anyone knows where I can find the normal settings for windows xp home sp2,please tell me.
I have reinstalled sp2 and that doesn't seem to have made any changes.
Thanks

You may have to reinstall. That program does a lot of damage and changes a lot of things. Try a repair before reformatting.

Repair Installation Instructions
or
How To Run A Repair Install
(How to Repair Windows XP by Installing Over top of Existing Setup)

All you do is boot from the CD. When it asks if you want to repair and to press "R", don't. Continue with the installation just like you were installing for the first time.

You will then get a license agreement and it will ask you to press F8 to agree. Right after that screen, you will see a list of Windows installations that setup found. It will ask if you want to repair it. Read the directions on that page!!!

Then, you will actually press "R" this time and XP will re-install.

When done, you will be back to your familiar desktop with everything looking just like it did before. But all your Windows Updates are gone and you will need to get those again.

If you have any problems booting from CD, set the CD to boot earlier than the hard drive in BIOS setup, or come back for more help. If you don't get the "Repair" optin to press the second "R", then your registry is too damaged for a repair and you need to restore an earlier copy of the registry.

Hello everybody, am a new user on this forum.

I seem to be having trouble with my operating system on my Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 3710 laptop. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium Serivce pack 2 which came preinstalled on the laptop when i bought it new 4 years ago. Albeit it is a little slow these days and i just did a defrag on it. But anyway, a random BSOD turned up when i was surfing the internet like i do everyday, i was also using a flash application to upload a video to Youtube. It restarted the computer, and when the windows logo comes up before the login screen fades in, it now comes up with a BSOD(Don't ask what it said, it came on and off too quick). Now running in Safe Mode with networking that runs fine. Can anyone help me with this?

Cheers,
Scott
 

A:Windows Vista Home Premium(Service Pack 2)

In safe mode, disable "Automatic restart" in:
Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings > Startup and Recovery [Settings]
Untick "Automatically restart" and click 'OK'.

Now try to restart normally and when the BSOD appears it should stay up, allowing you to read it.
Post what it says on there, especially the error statement in block caps, and the BCC data below it.

A:Service pack 1 for windows vista home premium

Hi,

 

During the Windows Vista SP1 installation, this issue occurs when a third-party application holds open a file or locks a file that the Service Pack installation program
has to use. For example, a third-party antivirus or antispyware application may cause this problem. If you are running any third-party applications such as Spyblocker, Internet or web accelerators (programs designed to boost the speed of the Internet connection),
security or anti-virus programs (McAfee, Norton, etc.), I recommend temporarily disabling or shutting them down during the troubleshooting process. Please be sure to re-enable them once the process has completed.

 

I recommend running Reset Windows Update Tool and System Update Readiness Tool. System resources, such as file data, registry data, and even in-memory data, can develop
inconsistencies during the lifetime of the operating system. These inconsistencies can be caused by various hardware failures or software issues. In some cases, these inconsistencies can affect the Windows servicing store, and they can cause software updates
not to work. We can run Reset Windows Update Tool and System Update Readiness Tool to resolve these inconsistencies. When Reset Windows Update Tool and System Update Readiness Tool detects incorrect manifests, files, or registry data, it might replace the
incorrect data with a corrected version. Please follow the steps below.

I have not done any of the following steps in safe-mode.
No other users on this desktop have been utilized in years.
It is not a problem of internet as several other devices work perfectly from my port and through my login (as it is university internet).
On looking at the network connection properties, it is automatically obtaining an IPv6 address, a DNS server address and an IP address.

I am mildly computer fluent and have tried to follow many routes, but haven't had good results.
Is it possible that malware, virus, rootkit etc has been removed, but settings are still changed and therefore prohibiting my internet speeds?

I would really appreciate any help as being a student, this computer is my lifeline, especially during exam time at the moment.

I am having problems with my Windows update system on my Windows XP Home service pack 2 operating system. I noticed that my PC would not shut down getting stuck at the final blue screen "Windows is Shutting Down" thus necessitating having to power it off manually. I tried to open the Automatic Updates form but nothing happened. On selecting the Windows Update web page Internet Explorer froze necessitating having to shut it down using CTRL ALT DEL. On searching the internet I found a site http://www.amset.info/windows/auto-updates.asp with 3 batch files which restore, repair and reinstall the Windows Automatic Update system. On running the re-install batch file Windows Update was uninstalled as it did not appear in Windows Services (Services.msc) list. I ran the re-install batch file again. Windows Automatic Update was re-installed and started as it now showed in Services.msc list as started. On clicking on Windows Automatic Updates icon the form opened up showing Automatic Download selected for 17:00 hrs each day. My PC now shut down properly and thus powered down automatically. I could now open up the Windows Update home page and run an analysis of what patches need to be downloaded. On trying to load and install the patches a dialog box came up saying downloading updates comprising a total size of about 7MB. I have 2mb broadband so the process should be quick.

Trying to do a 'repair' re-install of Windows XP Home Edition. I get through the loading of files and into the first installation window of Windows XP and then get the system windows asking for 'The File ASMS on Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 1 CD is needed. Type the path where the file is located and then click OK/B]'. The text in the path text box is 'GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROM0\I386'. The ASMS file (directory) is in the 1st level directory of I386 on the CD. This is also a valid OEM CD with the Hologram. The system has two CD drives; one is a CD drive and the other is a DVD/CD RW drive. It seems it is not communicating with the drive properly. Basically, I've tried to do it about any way I can think of. Even tried using each of the CD drives. I'm running out of ideas and really don't want to lose the 'not backed up' data on the HD with a full re-install of Windows. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc. Would be very grateful for any input!

Hi, I'm just posting to see if anyone can help, as another forum didn't reply to my post.
I suffered a blue screen on my windows 7 machine after trying to adjust the screen resoluton back to fit the pc monitor, after successfully using a tv as a monitor via hdmi cable. After the blue screen occured, the pc shut itself down, and tried to restart, but stayed in restart mode (black screen). I eventually tried to restore to earlier point, but this was unsuccessful, however windows loaded (with problems such as crashing, BEX64 error, and Iexplorer file probs).
My problem is that I never captured the error code related to the blue screen, and I also do not have any 'dumps' from 2016 (although there are dumps from other years) which could help find the cause of the bluescreen. So I am just wondering if anyone can help due to me not having any info? If not, will a factory restore be the best option?
Thanks in advance,
Boop

I can't figure out how to get it back. I have a Unimodem Half Duplex Audio device, SoftV92 Voice Modem with SmartCP, Audio codecs, Legacy Audio drivers, Legacy Video capture devices, Media control devices, video codecs. In the Device Manager there are big yellow question marks beside Multimedia Audio Controller and Parallel Device. The comment related to both of these says "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)." When I try to update the driver for each of these, the computer tells me that there is nothing installed. Don't have a clue how to fix this or where to even start. Can anyone help? I have attached information from Belarc Advisor about my system.ThanksCarol

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.

Just bought new never used factory fresh PC Acer AXC-605-UR29
Windows 7 Service Pack 1 manufacrtured this year,
I checked for latest updates and sure enough Service Pack 1 shows up in updates



Windows 7 Service Pack 1 for x64-based Systems (KB976932)

Download size: 9.1 MB

You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.

Update type: Important

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is a recommended collection of updates and improvements to Windows that are combined into a single installable update. The service pack can help make your computer safer and more reliable. A typical installation will take about 30 minutes to complete, and you will have to restart your computer about halfway through the process.


This is a brand new PC that was loaded with factory Windows 7 SP1 so what is going on here?
Can I simply ignore the update? My only concern is that somehow MS updates will is considering
Windows 7 outdated and that I will receive no more updates since the Service Pack 1 is showing up
in the update section. How the heck is the possible with a factory image. One other thing that might help is that before I could check for any new updates Windows said I required a update to windows update. I
Did this update before finding the lastest updates. Also many updates are post cut off date for Windows 7 SP 0 so it did show updates until December 2014, I guess I will find out it Windows will continue to supply new updates this coming Tuesday...

I have recently run into trouble with my computer from downloading the latest microsoft service pack. After I downloaded it it on 10/15/09 and restarted my computer I got a BSOD before windows could load up. The stop codes were
0x0000007E
0x80000003
0x805c49b8
0xb84c32b4
0xb84c2fb0

I decided to try and do a repair of my windows xp from the xp cd and it seemed to be working fine. The repair completed and when my computer loaded up it went right into the windows xp setup screen. It was running through the setup and when it got to about 3/4 of the way through I got a windows logo testing warning. This warning said that my Intel (R) ICH9 Family USB2 Universal Host Controller - 293C has not passed the windows logo testing and propted me to either continue its instillation or not. I clicked yes and was prompted again with the same warning only this time it was for the 293A USB2 controller. Again I clicked yes. I was then prompted a third time with the same warning but for the USB Universal Host Controller - 2939. This is where I get stuck because my mouse and keyboard are disabled and I have no way of continuing. I would like to avoid doing a full install of windows because I have some very important files that have not been backed up. Is there anyway of bypassing this warning?

The computer I am using is a self built computer with an ASUS P5k WS motherboard and an Intell E6600 CPU and is loaded with Windows XP professional edition.

I currently have windows xp service pack 1a on my pc. I got service pack 3 from a disc a gaming magazine gives away (NAG), and i installed it on my pc, after i installed it everytime i try to install a new program or try to open some it looks like my pc goes into sleep mode(it sort of shuts off without shutting off, you know?!). So anyway i uninstalled it and downloaded service pack2 from "www.soft32.com" and installed it, does the same thing so i'm thinking will it solve the problem if i download service pack 2 from microsoft directly? Please help!

A:Windows Xp service pack 2 problem

and welcome to the Forum

It's always best to get updates and service packs from M/S . . I'd go to SP3 and see if the behaviour continues

Hi, I am new here and would like some help regarding the windows sp3. I recently lost sound suddenly after an adware antivirus got into my system. i dleted it, but there was no sound over the internet, only on itunes,etc. I'm not good with computers, so my last resort was a system restore, I did that. I got the sound back. I think. but, no internet, so, I was thinking something on the update must have been rolledback to, so, I let windows update it. I reboot, and I noticed at the black screen where you see "windows xp" loading screen. It was very laggy. It took 2 mins. for it to go to the login screen, which took me 4 mins to login. and 5 mins. to load everything. I didn't know what's wrong till I looked back on what I did and I noticed that I upgraded from sp2 to sp3. I don't think its compatible, or I just did something wrong before updating it from sp3.

I'm using a Dell Dimension 2400. Windows SP3 now. and Windows XP Professional.

I tried to uninstall it, but it would just lay there. and not uninstall. while I tried to uninstall some programs, It uninstalled within minutes. I don't have the Windows XP C.D. :[ I don't know what to do anymore. If anyone can help please. thanks in advance. If you would like some more info on my specs or anything, I'll try and get them for you. might take awhile, because of my lag problem. sorry.

I successfully installed Windows XP Service Pack 2 and rebooted my computer. Whenever I try to start Internet Explorer, the window for it opens then closes immediately. The same is true for AOL Instant messanger. I'm running Norton Antivirus software and the subscription has expired. Could this be the reason for my problem or is there something else I need to do?

The best anti-virus that I have found is 'Avast' and it constantly is updating itself and the price is right, its free. I have two internets that I use one costs
4.95 and the other is 5.95. With unlimited use, no banners called Access4Less
All2Easy. I also have a program that I run to get rid of the messenger service.

Went to Windows Update Page and clicked on 'Express'. Message said Error Number 0x80072EE2'. Tried a solution then clicked on 'Express' again. This time installation process started but after just 19% of download/installation and for the next 20 minutes or so nothing happened. So I cancelled the process. Turned off McAfee Firewall and tried again. This time download and installation went a bit further but at a point which said 'Running processes after installation' nothing happened for yet another 20 minutes or so. So I cancelled again. What's going on ?
