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.)


I am very unsatisfied by my Yoga 2 13 running Windows 8.1 which has become unusable.It is less then 2 years old, and now, I get a Windows Blue Screen of Death almost every 5 minutes.I even need to use another PC to enter this post, I did not have enough time on my Yoga 2.So, almost every 5 minutes, the computer crashes with a BSOD.I completely reinitialized the PC few days ago, nothing changed.Moreover, when I reboot the PC, quite frequently, it cannot reboot the first time because it does not see the SSD (see attached picture).I thought it was the SSD. I found the Crystal Disk Info utility, and when I run it against my SSD, everything is fine, no problem.So, if someone can help me troubleshoot this, I really don't know where to start.

Windows 10. Internet Explorer 11. Have tried to download and install Microsoft's latest Spring update for over a week now, and getting Error code  0xc1900101.  The update downloads but will not install. I asked in the Microsoft support community for help, but a little confused by their replies.  Although I have been using PCs for years, not a techie. Now, on shutdown, receiving a message about Task Host window unable to shut down.I used the Microsoft media tool (which was suggested), however this just kept updating and went nowhere.Can anyone help, or do I take the Notebook to a specialist repair shop?Thank you for any help.

One stick of 16GB will work (using that now), two sticks however shuts down the system 1 minute into power up (fyi makes it into Windows desktop, whole process took 1 minute before power down)...
I used Crucials memory checker, received two DDR4-2400 sodimm 1.2v cl17 16gb dual sided chips (kit of 2x16GB).  System would power up, go into Windows 10, be up for Approx 1 minute and system would power off.  You cannot repower the system, it turns on and shuts off immediately.  Pulling power to the device, plugging in again, will let it power to same point as before.  Approx 1 minute into having both modules installed.
Currently using a single module of the 16gb DDR4-2400 sodimm.  The stick that came out was from the manufacturer, an 8gb with QC M02089 on it, no other markings.  It will not work in either socket with the 16gb chip, so can't go 24gb onboard (must be different clock or voltage).  TC steps as follows:
- Both 16 gb chips installed, power off after 1 minute up.
- Single 16gb chip, stable
- Single 8gb chip, stable
- Single 16gb chip with old 8gb, no boot
- Swap 16gb chips in sockets, power off after 1 minute up
- New set of 16 gb modules, same issue as before (these were slightly higher frequency of 2666MHz)
Seems like a power issue on the mobo, too much draw.  As a cannot find any information on the installed chip itself I don't know what I can do beside stay at 16gb.  This could potentially e... Read more

A:Lenovo M900 Tiny model 10FM: unable to install 32 GB Ram, shutdown after 1 minute

M93p uses DDR3, something is wrong if you have DDR4 in it. I personally used M93p with 32GB of RAM, four sticks of 8 GB RAM is a max for it I think. I used Dell-branded DDR3-1600.

I have installed several Linux distros on this machine. All work fine except none can shutdown or reboot. Whether on battery or plugged in, and whether i click shutdown (now), wait 59 seconds, or reboot it goes to a black screen with a static cursor at top left and does nothing more. The only way i can get out of this is to hold the power button until it shuts off. Time of use before shutdown has no effect. Is this a known issue? Any solution? Many thanks!

So I removed Mint 17 from my customer's dual boot laptop and now - no matter what I try - including every fix I can find via Google- I can't get Windows 7 to boot. (Actually that's not entirely true -- I'll get to that.)

I tried a Windows 7 Recovery disc. No joy.
I tried Boot-Repair. Still no joy.
I tried booting the W7 Recovery disc, going to the command prompt and running the procedure documented here. I get this message: The subsystem needed to support the image type is not present.
I tried to boot from a Windows 7 Installation disc (on USB) and it actually booted into the Windows installation that I'm trying to recover. I tried to run the bootsect command again but it said access was denied (probably because that's the active disc.)
So next I tried bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot (both said they were successful) - and it wrote the MBR to my flash drive toolkit. Now it boots fine - as long as that flash drive (which is now useless to me) is plugged in.

I am utterly and completely frustrated and exasperated. If this was my own laptop, I would already have smashed it with a sledgehammer.


A:Removed Linux - now unable to boot Win 7 (this one is different)

you should have used easyBCD before removing linux.try to copy mbr(i thing you have them in pendrive) to drive which has windows using easyBCD and make it as active. 2.try this handy tool partition wizard bootable cd MiniTool Partition Manager Software for Windows PC and Server to rebuild mbr or recover .try partition wizard first.use bootable version not installer.i fixed these issues with repaire cd and cmd prompt.

You can boot from the W2K CD and do a FIXBOOT to repair the boot files. There is also a nifty little utility called BOOTPART that I use to configure multiple boot configurations and to fix this problem, but it only works if your boot drive is FAT formatted.

A:unable to install xp ..after removing redhat linux


Welcome to TSF!!

I don' have any experience with Acronis drive tool. However, you said that the xp disk and your livecd aren't booting. This would leave me to believe that there is a problem with the drive itself. Has anything booted up since you used the Acronis tool? Are disks spinning up and then spinning down, or any other problems similar to that?

Microsoft staffers please jump in on this too, as I am at a loss for ideas on this one.

After a wrong manipulation i lost the access to all operating system installed in my computer.

I had 2 partitions one for winWind and the other for linux.

Actually when I try to switch on my laptop I get directly the boot setup.

I don't find any boot options configured. So I created one. I added the following path for the boot option : \efi\boot\bootx64.efi

I didn't added this path with my keyboard I selected it front the options that the system suggested to me.

I saved the changes and I restarted the computer but the issue persists I still have the options when I power on the laptop.

Could you please help me. Thanks

I have downloaded the current BIOS (n11ur12w.iso) and verified the md5sum is correct: md5sum n11ur12w.iso dc67b2a8f22406a257401cea737bd423  n11ur12w.isoI burned it to a USB stick using the usual `dd` command. First I used the simple approach:dd if=n11ur12w.iso of=/dev/sdeThat did not work. So I was a bit more careful the second time and I used:dd if=n11ur12w.iso of=/dev/sde status=progress bs=1M iflag=fullblockThe dd command completed without problems, but the USB will still not boot. So I started investigating and that leads to my question. When I mount the iso file as shown below, should I see files?mount -o loop n11ur12w.iso /mnt/isoHere's all I see:ls -la /mnt/iso/
total 2
dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 2048 Feb 27 18:20 .
drwxr-xr-x 1 user user 278 Mar 20 19:04 ..Is that normal? I downloaded the prior BIOS file (n11ur10w.iso) too, and checked it -- same thing. No files are visible on the device, when mounted as an ISO. Side note: Lenovo needs to revamp their BIOS update process. Take a look at how easy it is to update a BIOS on an Intel NUC under any operating system, for example.  

A:Unable to update w550s BIOS (Linux)

I see you've already joined an "update BIOS" thread in the Linux forum, so I won't move this thread there.
I don't know how to massage that ISO into something bootable.  Hopefully someone in the Linux forum can help.
I can say that I took a look at that ISO with 7zip and it looks like it should.   Also, ThinkPad models newer than yours include scripts to build a bootable flash drive in the BIOS download.  It's in the windows exe (for now at least) so it does require a Win machine or VM but it can be done w/out having to hand-build a bootable installer.
FWIW, and I realize this isn't of much (any) help just now.

Was the USB stick made on the Win8 machine? If so, it may have a GPT partition scheme, which the presumably non-UEFI Win7 machine will not read. If you were able to boot from the stick on the W8 machine without turning off secure boot in the bios, this is the case.

I suddenly received a flurry of intrusion attempt messages from Norton (2011) but the source of the attacks appeared to be my own computer (possibly svchost.exe?) although some of them indicated the possibility of a TidServ infection.

I ran TDSSKiller, which found nothing then started a full Norton Scan and a Spybot Search&Destroy scan. About five minutes into the scan the system crashed with a blue screen and memory dump.

Thereafter I could not reboot Vista and instead got a black screen with a cursor in the top left corner. After several attempts I was able to boot from the Vista disc but I only got as far as the recovery options.

The start up scan does not report any errors, I have successfully restored two restore points and I still cannot get past the black screen stage.

I do have command prompt access from the recovery options menu, but I do not have the expertise to use this.

The Vista installation is on a Macbook partition using Bootcamp so I can actually access the files from the Mac OS partition.

Any help and suggestions VERY gratefully received!!

Hi there, I have been experiencing connections issues when play two MOBA type games, League of Legends and Heroes of Newearth.

The connection issue specified is that whenever I may be playing the game I would randomly disconnect once at maybe 5-15 minutes into the game, I'd be fine on the homepage of the client or whatever and I could sit there forever without me being disconnected. But when entering the game and playing the game for a bit this would occur. At first I thought it was just my router acting that way but when I went to check if I could reconnect to the router, my router specifically just disappeared. However, the router appeared to still be working. My PS3 next to me which is connected to the router also was also still connected to the router, however my laptop was not.

To summarize it up, when playing LoL or HoN, (These two games only), I would disconnect and my laptop would not be able to reconnect because it would not even show that my router existed.

I had first thought it was only LoL acting up and asked for help on their forums however received no help. I thought this because every other online game I played would be perfectly fine as I played it. Some games where this doesn't happen is Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne, and Ragnarok Online. However, recently, I decided to try out HoN thinking it was only LoL that acted that way, but to my dismay it had occurred the same way on HoN.

So what I'm basically asking, what may be the problem? How c... Read more

Hi all...

I have Vista Business Edition (32bit) installed.
Workstation is on the network.
We use our workstation at work to connect to various locations, using various VPNs, from web based VPN to standalone such as Cisco, SonicWall, etc. etc.

Often, I work from home (XP workstation) and I want to RDC into my VISTA workstation at work. Sporadically, It won't allow me to remote in. (Once I establish my VPN to the network at work and try to RDC, it gives me the generic message that the workstation (my vista workstation) is unavailable or currently not accepting connections, etc.

The only way we have figured out to solve this is:
1- ipconfig renew from the VISTA workstation at work
2- above doesn't always work and we must reboot VISTA prior to leaving work.

If I reboot VISTA, then I have never had any issues RDC from home...

If we forget to do the above, then it is a gamble... Sometimes I'll be able to connect from home, sometimes I won't...

Both my coworker (which has VISTA installed) and I have to do this.

BTW, we have other workstations at work that are XP and that we also use to connect to various sites using the same VPN and we have no problems to RDC to those from our home. (and we never have to ipconfig renew or reboot - only with VISTA).

1- Anybody else experiencing this?
2- Is this a known problem?
3- Any settings I could change that would fix this?

Again, please remember that I can log in from time to time from home, this is a sporadic issue which we t... Read more

A:RDC - Unable to remote in - Must reboot everytime

Half of a Solution :

Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Network Connections

Right click on the virtual Adapter that is causing the issue and Disable it.

In my case, it is my Sonic Wall VPN. Exit out of the Sonic VPN wasn't enough. One also needs to disable it as per above.

Too bad. I feel this should be done automatically once you exit out of Sonic Wall.

If I forget to disable it, then I'm back to square one as per my initial post.

Hey all,

so my computer had been running sluggishly for quite some time, and I suspected it of being infected. Things hit their peak when I moved into my dorm room. All of the sudden, my computer was not able to connect to the internet through my room's ethernet wall jack. I spent a while trying to figure out what was wrong, running anti-malware program to no success, and eventually ended up restarting the computer in safe mode with networking. When I did that, the computer was suddenly able to connect to the iternet. Because of that, I decided to factory reboot my computer (I have an asus ul-50vt).

That worked; I'm now able to connect to the iternet. However there is something seriously wrong with the connection. Web pages load erratically (some will load instantly, others extremely slowly and others not at all). I ran a speed test it and it gave my download speed as 2.4 kbps, while my upload speed is 20.3 mpbs! The only answer I can come up with is that the computer is still infected somehow and that's slowing my internet down. The problem I'm having is that whenever I try to download a file, like an anti-spyware program or a windows update the download goes extremely slow for a minute or two and then freezes up all together. I'm not able to download any files of significant size. Can anyone help?

A:hangup/blk screen/ unable to reboot

The log is clean. A lot of times shutdown problems are because there is a driver conflict. Try and see if you can update the drivers for your video card, sound card, and network and see if that helps

Good afternoon,

Let me start by saying that I'm not a huge techie. There are a lot of things I know about computers, but much more that I don't know. I'm hoping you all can help me save my desktop computer without having to lose years of files I can't replace.

I updated my computer from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 several months ago and it has been working fine until last night. And before anyone asks, no, I was stupid and never made a recovery disk. I kept telling myself I needed to do so, but I forgot.

Last night I was running an update to the AMD Catalyst Suite to get updated drivers for my video card. While that was running I had Firefox open and was checking my email. All of the sudden I got a BSoD telling me something had gone wrong and my computer needed to restart, but it gave me absolutely no info on what had gone wrong. I assume though that it's related to the video driver update I was attempting. My computer restarted and then got stuck in an auto repair loop. It would find nothing to repair, then would restart and go right back into the auto repair again. At this point I have no access to the system except by command line.

These are the fixes I have tried so far, from various sources online, in roughly the order I tried them:
Restore Point - I only have 3 restore points for some reason, and I've tried to restore to all of them but they all fail.Startup Repair - Have tried this 5 or 6 times, restarting after each attempt, with no change.Startup Options - I... Read more

I installed a new hard drive and reloaded Windows XP Home edition from original disk. I then added the Windows XP backup feature to the install. The pc runs fine, reboots, etc. until I try to restore the files from the Windows XP backup that I made of the old hard drive. The Windows restore functions completes, but when it restarts I get the blue screen with the following message:

Process1_Initialization_Failed Stop: 0x0000006B (0xC000007A, 0x00000008, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

The Roxio GoBack was not installed on the pc. The original backup was made with Windows XP SP2. Any suggestions appreciated.


A:Unable to reboot XP after restore from backup

When restoring the original OS you have to get the updates to get it to the service pack of the last backup. I had the same problem because I was loading SP1 then trying to restore an SP2 backup.

I have a hp pavilion g6 notebook with win7 installed. It just got off suddenly and won't boot. I tried 2 windows 7 disks which got stuck at setup is starting. I tried a bootable windows xp usb but it kept giving me the Bsod 0x7b. Some forums say to change to ide in sata settings but my bios, insydeh20 revision 3.5, doesn't have such an option.
