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 had a Windows 32 System Error.  A file was corrupt or missing.I first had to go into the Bios and disable SATA Native Mode.Then, I put in the Windows Recovery Disk I purchased from Amazon.I went to a screen that read, "Microsoft Windows XP(TM) Recovery ConsoleThe Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery.Type EXIT to quit the Recovery Console and restart the computer. 1. D:\MiniNT Which Windows installation would you like to log onto(To cancel, press ENTER) This didn't  work at all. So I went back to try a step (Recovery Mode F11) that initially didn't work but I noticed more progress since I disabled the SATA Native mode. So I went to Recovery Mode and this time it worked.I recovered Windows back to Factory settings.Do I have to go back and enable SATA Native now?

A:SATA Native mode enable or disable?

Hi: It is best if you can, but you cannot until you install the SATA ACHI driver. If you have an Intel processor, I can help you do that.  If you have an AMD processor, I can't because I don't know how. If you have a notebook with an Intel processor, please post your full notebook model. It isn't really a big deal if you can't change the setting back. You'll hardly notice any difference. It is just that ACHI mode allows the hard drive to perform more efficiently for lack of a better word. See this article for more info. http://www.differencebetween.net/technology/difference-between-ahci-and-ide/ Paul

Hi, I have a bios version 7 on me pc and I dont have a update for a bios 8.I really need to disable secure boot and enable legacy mode but I dont have that option.Is there a way or a trick that I can do this?

A:Disable Secure Boot and enable legacy mode

@Siemen,Did you system originally have WIN 7, as listed here?   If so, the BIOS is correct at rev 7.  You can not  use the newer UEFI graphic cards because there is NO update BIOS available.  Your correct, you do not have a way to disable secure boot and enable legacy. In another post you asked, and got no answer.Yes, the GTX 660 will work, with an adequate new PSU.  Recommend EVGA GTX 600 and Corsair CX600 PSU.  On the GTX 750Ti inquiry, only chance would be the Hybrid vBIOS cards.  PSW<> The GTX 670's are a tad touchy.

Our organization recently invested in a large batch of 250 G4 notebooks. I'm wondering if there's a way to quickly enable/disable the touchpad, modify something in our group policy, or distribute a driver update or something to allow for this option. Due to the environment many of our staff are working in (frequently out in the community or even operating off of mobile hotspots in their parked vehicle), many users don't use a mouse, but would like the option to turn the touchpad off while typing to avoid misplacing the cursor. Naturally, they'll need the ability to easily turn the touchpad back on without the use of a mouse in this case. As a result, I don't see navigating to the mouse settings to disable the touchpad as being a viable option, as they wouldn't have the ability to turn it back on when they were done typing. I'm used to seeing a Fn + F key option to disable the touchpad, but this doesn't seem to be available on this model. Is there a solution that would result in functionality with that level of simplicity? If not, what other options are there?

I use my Win Vista laptop at home and the office.

I use wifi at home and wired lan at the office. My laptop does have any settings in the TCP/IP properties. Everything is at default.

Every time I I try to use it at the office I have to disable and reenable the Lan connection from Manage networks, otherwise I do not get Net connectivity (except local lan).

No problem at home.

Since everything is default it picks up my IP from DHCP and gets other settings same way.

Why do I have to Disable and Enable the Lan connection before it starts accessing the Net.
 

A:Enable /disable Lan connection

If you put the laptop to Sleep or Hibernation before disconnecting the cable that may the cause. Try disconnecting the cable first.

The adapter/computer may not be "signing off" the network properly. Make sure you have the latest ethernet driver.

If the laptop is not rebooted from one day to the next, and
the work router or server is reset while the laptop is away, and
the lease time is long enough for the computer to think it still deserves the "old" IP, then that is a problem. Ask the network administrator to shorten the lease time, or shut down when you transport the machine, or live with your work around.

Hi,

noticed the other day when I was trying to minimize what I have on my C drive ssd that the pagefile took up around 11GB and I did a Google search but I don't feel that the answer I got from there enlighten-ed me at all, I'm still wondering what to do.

/BTA

A:Disable/Enable Pagefile?

You can easily change the size of the page file to something a lot smaller than 11 GB if you are concerned about space allotted to it.

Discussing whether or not to eliminate it entirely is useless. You can find opinions on either side, with each side positive that the other side is composed of morons. "I did X and haven't had any problems...........".

Would you spend much time trying to convince someone of anything about religion? If you would, then Google and experiment all you wish with the page file. Put it on some other drive, some other partition, make it any size you want, or do away with it entirely.

But don't expect to be "enlightened". Do what you want. If you don't like the results, do something else.

I hope I am not duplicating something here. . . . I did look - Honest!

I ran into an interesting problem and found an easy fix.

First: I wanted to ENABLE AHCI because (supposedly) it improves HDD performance. (It also enables a host of other interesting features.)

I discovered the trick of setting the START paramater in the registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci
from "3" to "0" - and then making the switch in the BIOS.

I tried to switch back, and simply resetting this start value to "3" doesn't work.

The issue here is that there are actually TWO keys that control the IDE/AHCI interface choice:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\pciide
When the system is in IDE interface mode, the respective start values are:msahci's START value is "3"
pciide's START value is "0"
When the system is in AHCI interface mode, the respective start values are:msahci's START value is "0"
pciide's START value is "3"
It is entirely possible that setting the START value to zero in the key representing the interface type you wish to use, may cause the corresponding key in the other interface type to automagically switch to "3". I do not know this, nor have I tested it.

What works for me is setting both START values to the values that correspond to the interface I wish to use.

It should be trivially... Read more

A:Enable and/or Disable AHCI

Hi jharris. Welcome.






Quote:
First: I wanted to ENABLE AHCI because (supposedly) it improves HDD performance. (It also enables a host of other interesting features.)


For me, the reasons to enable AHCI are Native Command Queuing and Hot Swapping, hot swapping being the most important to me.

As far as switching back and forth, I could imagine issues arising from that (including confusion as to what mode I was running in at a given time...).

But if I needed to do it as a utility to convert drives to vhd's, I would consider a dual boot, with the AHCI disabled boot just a simple OS with whatever utilities I needed to get the job done. Keeping it simple would mean a quick boot to desktop and a small partition.

I'll make the question at short and sweet as possible. I have two programs (FaxTalk and WinPage) that both use the modem. I keep FaxTalk running in the background most of the time.

During the day, I need to use WinPage to send text pages to co-workers. To do this I have to close FaxTalk, start WinPage and send the pages, Close Winpage, and restart FaxTalk.

The reason that I must do this is because FaxTalk "grabs" the port and if FaxTalk is open Winpage gives me the error, "Error Opening Com Port! Port Id=-3". It does not work the other way around (ie have WinPage open 1st, then open Faxtalk and get an error from Faxtalk). I assume this is because Winpage just sits there and does not lock onto the modem port until it actually goes to send the page, and FaxTalk continuously is monitoring the port for incoming calls. So I was just wondering....

Is there a way to maybe assign an "alias" port id to the modem for one of the applications, temporarity disable the lock that FaxTalk has over the port, give WinPage priority over the port, or something similar. Any Ideas or suggestions.

Ratman,

I think that the way you are handling it presently is the way that you are going to have to do it. It appears to be a shortcoming in the way the application was written.

Hi,

I received my Plextor M5P 512 GB today .
Could not resist and it is already installed and running...like the wind! What a difference compared to my Seagate Momentus 7200.4. I'm running a Tecra R840 laptop, and now everything loads quickly! The Win boot is phenomenal .
Everything went smooth, which was great! Zero issues, and I restore it to factory state and then removed almost all the bloatware/sw that I do not use/need!

Now I need (?) to make some tweaks, right ?

1- Defrag is already schedulled to never...so it is ok, right?
2- Should I disable restore (restore points)? (pros/cons)
3- Should I disable Write-caching to the ssd? (pros/cons)
4- Should I disable "allow files in this drive to have contents indexed in adition to file properties" ?

Anything else? (I just want a robust and reliable system! I do not need anything faster...!)

I will appreciate all the help .

Regards,
paulo

A:Plextor M5P installed :-). What to enable/disable

My opinion:
1 yes.
2-4 no.

Other than defrag, why not just treat the SSD as any other drive. That is what I'm doing. If the technology is not good enough to work that way then I'll move back to a 7200 or 10K SATA drive when the SSD dies.

I have a Seagate Backup Plus 5TB external HD conntected to my PC via USB. The external HD is only used for weekly backups. It is the loudest component of my PC. I don't want to listen to the HD spinning up, which happens frequently from what I can only assume to be background Windows processes.

I currently have the external HD disabled through Device Manager. I manually enable it on Sunday evening before going to bed so that the scheduled backup can write to it over night. I disable the external HD again in the morning so it will remain silent. I would like to be able to schedule the device to automatically enable/disable before/after the scheduled backups. This will ensure the backups happen even if I forget to manually enable the device.

I have tried to figure out a way to do this using Task Scheduler, but didn't see how I could set this up as a task. I have also tried creating two batch files (one to enable, one to disable) that would change the Start value in the USBSTOR registry key but I could not get this to work successfully. When I ran the batch file to disable USB storage I was still able to see and access the external HD (I confirmed that the Start value did change to a 4 which is supposed to disable, so not sure what I did wrong here). The plan was to set up the batch files to execute using Task Scheduler. Not sure if that would have worked anyway, as the batch files need to be run as administrator.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there any freeware avail... Read more

Yesterday for some reason the internet was connected however the server was unable to display most webpages. To try and fix the problem I reset the settings under internet options, advanced. This disabled all add-ons. Now the server seems to be fixed however I'm now uncertain which add-ons I should re-enable.
Also loading web pages seems to be far slower than usual.

Will appreciate any help
