IMPOSSIBLE SOLUTION???

Q: IMPOSSIBLE SOLUTION???

I'm done, I have troubleshooted my PC thousand times just trying to solve it.

Here my specs:
Intel core 2 duo E4600 @2.4 GHz

4GB of DDR2 Ram(not buffered)

DELL P301D Motherboard For the Vostro 220s System (Is one of those motherboard which just handles core2duo and below cpus

XFX 4GB R9 380

Logysis 550w power supply

Dell Vostro 200 Bios 1.0.16

Windows 8.1 Pro (Not original)

Alright, so my problem basically is that my on my r9 380 which is not DEAD doesn t display at all on the monitor, but on board graphics are just fine, here is the list of things that I've tried already:

Reset CMOS
Change form VGA to HDMI and DVI
Tried 3 different monitors
Tried the graphics card on another setup
Tested EVERY SINGLE COMPONENT BESIDES THE GRAPHICS CARD and they all work fine
Tested display cables, they all work
Tried my old gt 740 And it worked fine on the board (SO NO PCI-E x16 Express problems)
Cleared all AMD/NVIDIA DRIVERS
Disabled On board graphics
Make pci express principal display
Make sure all cables were tight up and worked correctly
Graphics card receiving enough power
PSU working on others pc
Ram, all fans, cpu, everything good.

Another thing that is interesting is that I connected 2 display ports (1 connected to the graphics card and one to the board) Guess what my motherboard actually detects my gpu but obviously shows up the dell unsupported video configuration

Like this: https://www.google.com.do/search?q=unsupported+video+fo...:

But, my device manager doesn t detect it. SO BASICALLY IS LIKE THE CARD IS DEAD BUT IT ISN'T, it spins up normally doesn t overheat from what I see, but it Just not shows up.

My guess is when I updated the bios this happened, if so Any way to go back to the Dell Vostro 200 bios 1.0.15?

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

I have a Media Sharing problem. Up until a few days ago I could stream files from my PC to my Xbox360 through WMP11 (I am running Vista Ultimate Home Edition 64bit SP2).

I have the error message on the WMP: "Media sharing has been turned off because a required Windows setting or component has changed. For additional assistance, click Web Help." The Web Help link sends me here where I discovered the origin of the problem:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/wi...id=C00D0FF4&contextid=233&originalid=C00D0FF4

I have completed everything until Step 5 (part 3)

Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences\HME\[security ID] subkey. The name text of the security ID folder is long, composed of alphanumeric characters broken up with dashes.

When I navigate to the appropriate location there is nothing in my "HME" folder. No [Security ID] Subkey, no alphanumeric characters...nothing. I am supposed to access the Permissions of the security ID folder and confirm my user account is listed as the owner of this subkey on the Security tab, but I can not.

I believe a total re-install of Vista would solve this since WMP is built into the OS, but I don't have an install disc and I really would hate to do that regardless.

The CMD: sfc /scannow does not repair the file. Neither does the MicrosoftFixit.WinMediaPlayer.Run.exe program. It's not possible to re-install WMP since the version I have is newer than the version the Mi... Read more

MicroSoft tell me that Error code 0x80070005 with all its causes and variants is nothing whatsoever to do with them, the ‘Company’. Well it wouldn’t be their fault, would it, when considering all the many tens of thousands of near £50UK charges they make from each Customer to remove it.
The instance that afflicts me is as follows: Using ms Windows 7 and wishing to conduct a Clean or an Upgrade ( saving files and programs) – the ms CD presents an Install Window – followed by Setup – but a displayed window then appears with this text
>> “Window was unable to create a required installation folder
Error code 0x80070005<<.……… Not further progress is possible.

In spite of an extensive search of the Web over a long period of time I have not located any useful and workable solution.
It is unwise to utilize commercial sites which purport to provide a solution. You run the risk of being inundated with associated error and cleaning software apart from a probability that a purchased program will fail, followed by a refusal to refund the software solution cost.


It is alarming that with all the extensive know-how and computer specialisation “Out There” that I cannot find a single source solution for my difficulty…….

Or am I mistaken!.......Please Help.

Greetings all. I got a new HP Pavilion with windows 7 upgraded to professional. Three of the programs I use had to be replaced since they would not work on Windows 7. My windows 7 seems to be missing a number of files such as xp mode and the solution to a problem with loading Print Master 2012 platinum requires some folders that also appear to be missing... to fix the java.lang.reflect.InovationTargetExemption error, the trouble shooters recommended going into the users folder, click on the administrators folder, into the appdata file and then the local settings folder. I go into the administrator folder and I can't find the appsdata folder at all. CCleaner states that a number of links and some files appear to be missing. I sent word to the software trouble shooters but I need this problem solved immediately to get out a newsletter that is already late.

I have installed on my computer a new PC only version of Windows 8. I've not purchased a new PC for about 8 years so its impossible it came with the computer, I built the computer myself.

I remember I brought an upgrade copy of Win8 in error, I got it from PC world. I still have those disk but now I also have this new PC version. I remember going back to PC to tell them I brought it in error I also remember calling the MS helpline.

Can anyone make sense of this? How did this copy come to be working on this computer?

I'm currently wanting to do a clean install but I can't because I can't workout what happened in the past

A:How is this even impossible?

Sounds like you may have an OEM System Builder versions of Windows 8. It is intended to be installed by someone or a company building a new computer that is to be resold. That particular version includes a personal use license which allows anyone to buy an OEM System Builder copy of the software and install it on a (new or old) PC that is intended for personal use. It should have come with an installation key.

Here is some more information on the ZDnet web site.

I have a folder in my external terabyte that appeared some time ago. I can not delete it with any software. I tried to delete with DOS and it says all the same. The problem is that it will not let me downgrade it to a write-able format. It seems to be locked in READ ONLY status. I have attempted to take ownership of the drive and the files, but I can not get rid of it. When I first noticed it, it was random letters. When I tried to delete the file it turned into many many "Z's". When I ran the DOS delete protocol it changed into 6 "Z's"; with in that folder is a empty folder called "Update". Since then I have not been able to do anything about it. I don't know what to do. I even downloaded a program called Delete on Boot, and still no success. I have been coming here for about a year when I caught the Rogue Internet Security 2010. It was since then, 12/30/09 the day that i reformatted to yield to the virus's victory that the file first appeared in the external hard drive. I am wits end and I know someone out there can help me. Please tell me what to do. I was told that it was very complex and destructive hack file. Am I infected again?

Hey guys it's me again with my annoying and those that seem to be impossible-to-fix-problems.

Well 3 months ago i bought an AMD 5600+ Dual Core and i had lots of problems since then, believing it was defective, i wrote to AMD support and requested an RMA. My replacement arrived today. It fixed LOTS of random crashes and my computer was able to boot up properly with both rams placed on in dual channel. I went to play on Soulstorm, it crashed, sometimes half way through a game or sometimes about 5 minutes into the game. I went on another game which is Company of Heroes, it crashed too.

The only reason i tested these 2 games was because they crashed most of the times when i had the defective processor.I thought it was the RAM but i thought it wouldn't make any sense because while waiting for my replacement to arrive, i put in my old AMD Athlon 3500+ and it worked fine with EVERY SINGLE games so it couldn't be the RAM and it can't be the replacement either. Not knowing what else to do, i took one stick of ram out, and guess what? It worked like a charm ! I really have no idea what's going on inside but if anyone had been through this or anyone who knows how to fix please help and....ermm if it works you'll be able to rest assured that a person on earth is grateful and just wants to kill you with hugs XD

Have you tried going into C:\program files\Snagit? You can delete the program directly from the program files directory or wherever it may have installed (program files is the standard). If its currently running, kill it from the cntrl-alt-del menu and delete the entire folder from programs. If you get access denied and either cant kill the process or dont know what it is, start in safe mode and delete it from the directory.

A:Impossible to download anything

Does your Internet keep dropping (Are you on wireless or something?).

Your topic suggests you can't download "anything", yet below you say you have trouble downloading "anything big". I'm assuming you can download small files?

You could always try using a download manager rather than using your browser to download the files. Search the forums for a thread on download managers if you want to find out more.

Leechget is what i use at present.

This morning, while attempting to move some files around my Windows 7 64bit laptop began telling me that I didn't have permission to do so, as I needed permission from the "TrustedInstaller". I googled this issue and resolved it by configuring permissions.

Feeling a little suspicious I decided to run Malwarebytes. As I attempted to install it, when asked what language I wanted - the program defaults to "Bosanski". Being that I work in IT and have cleaned hundreds of machines I installed it anyway and was able to blindly walk my way through it and run a scan. It came back clean.

I then went to "Region and Language" in the Control Panel and once I got in there, all the values started scrolling around madly until it settled on "Afrikaans (South Africa).

I then went to download Speccy, as to give you a screenshot of my system specs and the installer did the same thing. It chose the "Portuguese" language. I then tried to download some other programs and they all did the same thing.

Another bug that is happening is that when I attempt to move any files, Windows will not allow me to scroll down...it locks onto "My Documents" and then if I scroll down and choose a different directory...it immediately scrolls back up to My Documents.

I'm at my wits end with this, as googling as brought me nothing. One thread came close to what I was describing but it had no resolution. And most of the things from his log appear identi... Read more

A:Nearly Impossible To Describe, But I'll Try

Trustedinstaller *belongs* to the operating system and should not be moved or modified in any way. Also, keep in mind, just because you scanned with MBAM and came up clean, doesn't mean that your system, is in fact, clean. It sure sounds like malware, or some kind of virus, to me. If you have an installed AV, run a full system scan. Perhaps you could try restoring to a point before you had issues. I don't believe Trustedinstaller would have anything to do with the language issues that you are experiencing.

I have tried with no success.

Downloading, reinstalling, editing registered key...you name it...even third party installation programs claims that I do have 9c but dxdiag reads The file qasf.dll is an old version, which could cause problems.

Any idea how I fix this? my file versions is not the correct versions for 9c for instance my d3d9.dll version reads 5.03.2600.2055 qasf 10.00.0000.3802.

Thanks for looking at my post and problem, hope anyone can help! pvt mails welcome

I recently had a bunch of viruses that messed up my entire computer.
I ran a bunch of spyware/malware scans and they found a bunch of things.

I ran an AVG scan, and it told me to restart so I did.
When it turned back on, nothing would load.
No start menu, no taskbar, no desktop icons, just a background.
The Task Manager says it's been disabled by the administrator.

This happens even in safe mode, and I can't get into the administrator account.

How exactly do I fix this problem? Is it even possible to fix this problem?
it's extremely frustrating.

by the way, I'm using XP professional.

Okay, this may seem needlessly complicated, but humour me.

I work at a school that has some students using a video program requiring the screen resolution to be set at a particular level (800x600 I'm told). The students do not have access to the Display Properties panel, presumable to stop them screwin around with any of the other settings.

Now, I've been told to find a setting in the windows registry that allows students access to the screen resolution property but NOT the actual Display Properties panel. Is this even possible?!? If so, any ideas on where the hell to find it? The OS is Windows XP.

If this isn't possible, does anyone have any suggestions for other solutions to this problem? Perhaps an app that allows access to certain aspects of the Display Properties settings?

Hi there. I somehow manged to contract a Trojan Virus that Ad-Aware identified as Virtumonde on my laptop and cannot figure out how to get rid of it. i realized that my Java was out of date so i removed the JS2E version, i tried to install the newest version but i keep getting an error which i believe comes from the Trojan, not windows itself. I tried Vundofix, ComboFix, and SuperAntiSpyware, but the computer would not let me and i got the same error window each time:

The computer did, however let me install and run HijackThis, so here is my log. Thanks in advance for any help, i really appreciate it. I am an engineering student and usually i can figure out how to repair these things, but this one has me stumped!

Ok If anyone can help me with this i will be impressed

I play on an online game and i was recently key logged. I injected a DLL into the game, and inside the dll there was a key logger.
Only one virus scanner can identify it and i don't have the virus scanner (CPsecure).

The keylogger is called Troj.Gamethief.w32.wow.bwa

Heres how this thing works. Basically the key logger doesnt run UNLESS i inject it into my game.exe. So its not a threat to any other passwords, just my game one. I believe it sends my account/pass when i load it.

If i removed the dll the keylogger would be removed also, but i want to use this program so im trying to avoid that. The only solution i can come up with is using a hex editor to stop the function. But i am not familiar enough with hex editors to do this.

So i guess i need someone with hex editing knowledge to help me remove this. or someone who knows a program i havnt found on google yet.

Thanks

-Sean

This computer was recently used to look for a certain video online, and, unsurprisingly, it got a virus and/or some spyware. My homepage gets redirected to a million spyware protection sites (which seem like they're the hijackers themselves) and I'm having a hard time fixing it. So far I've run CW Shredder, Spybot S&D, and Adaware. The last two seemed to help, but adaware was unable to delete one of the trojans and the problem is still there.

So here's the HJT log, for your inspection.

I have an HP dv2000 laptop. I am trying to get the built-in webcam to record properly and I can't figure it out.

When I use the HP software for the camera that came with the computer, 10 seconds of recording is over 100 megabytes...and the quality is amazingly terrible.

I've tried for 1 year to figure out why the camera is like this, and I've had no luck. I've looked at all options, settings, etc, and there are none to change this.

Why is the HP cam like this? I've had the computer for a year and I am not even able to put a simple video on youtube!

Does anyone know why HP built-in webcams record 10 seconds using 100 megabytes?

Try this non-Hp webcam driver: http://mboffin.com/stuff/Webcam_Chicony_Driver_5.7.28.400.zip

Holy cow I am hoping someone here can help me out for I am pulling my hair out one strand at a time.
 
I have a Sony Vaio All-In-One 3D touch screen computer [VPCL22SFX] that is having an issue and I am unable to figure out what exactly is going on. It does not lack in processing power or RAM which makes this even more difficult. This PC has worked perfectly since I bought it but now it seems there is something wrong and I can't figure it out. About 3 months ago it started slowing down at certain times and I have exhausted everything I know to help diagnose what the issue could be and I am coming up with nada. I only use this PC for accessing MS Office and internet surfing so I keep it very clean. When I go to YouTube the video and audio stutters and brings the PC down to a crawl. I will attempt to move the mouse at the same time and it also stutters or skips all over the place. When I try to copy data over from the PC to an external hard drive [or vice versa] the mouse exhibits the same behavior. I am on a wired connection and I am getting about 40 MBPS downloads and 4 MBPS uploads on AT&T Uverse, and I run speed tests all the time so I know the number is consistent. I have used Hiren's Boot CD to test the CPU, the RAM, the fans, the hard drive, the video card and the audio and it passes all the tests. I also used VAIO Care to test everything as well as Bluetooth, BD drive, etc. and it passed all those tests as well. I ran a check for spyware and malware...nothing w... Read more

Assume I know nothing (yes my name is Jon).

Anyway, I want excel to go to a url, populate some fields (date range, location), run the report, then download it in csv format.

The url is actually an internal SQL database so this should be simple via just using a SQL table. However, my company won't give me backdoor access to the server to connect to the table.

I can however, go to the url (not sure if website or url or what is the correct term) and manually input everything, run the report, export as .csv, copy, paste, and go from there. I have to do this everyday when the previous days information is uploaded to the database. There could also be changes made to other days which I need to update as well.

Is there a way I can automate this without having to bother my IT group with server permissions?

Hello,

First i'm french, so sorry for my bad words or setences.

I use a acer computer with vista sp1. I've got 3 parts on my hdd.
That is to say an eisa part for recovery, second part C: for vista premium and a third one for datas.

I've downloaded seven on the microsoft website and burn it with nero 7 and imagburn.

Noone works correctly, the best is that one i've burned with imagburn. speed 2.4 on an rw and 4 with an r

Each time i try to install seven, i've got the install page, i press "' install now"', and i received that beautifull message ..

"' windows couldt not collect information ( for os image ) in the specefied image files ( install.wim ) does not exist "'

I've checked my iso disc and the "' install.wim "' really exist on the dvd.

An other detail, each time after pressing "' install now "' and before the beautiful message my floppy tries to run.

If you have ideas or tips, they are welcome.

Sincerely yours,
Labougie,

A:impossible instal of seven

It is probably your installation media causing the problem..

This happens when it cannot verify the install.wim image on the DVD.

Try changing DVD discs brand, or using an external DVD rom drive. Perhaps yours is failing. If anything else fails, try installing from a USB stick.
