Enabling vtx with BIOS Configuration Utility

Q: Enabling vtx with BIOS Configuration Utility

Hi, We have a script using the HP BiOS Utility to change the vtx setting but we are currently experiencing problems. This script has been developped by a 3rd party and its been succesfully tested on multiple HP Models. In our environment, we are using the following HP workstations:HP Compaq 8100 Elite SFFHP Compaq 8200 Elite SFFHP Compaq Elite 8300 SFF By default, our BIOS doesn't have any password, the script will run the HP BIOS Utility with admin privilege, add a temporary password, enable the Vtx setting and remove the password. On the next reboot, we will run our software that needs vtx enable but the program will not see that vtx is enable. If we enter the BIOS manually, the Vtx setting will be enable, the only way that the software will recognize that vtx is enable is if we do another change to the BIOS and save that change. It seems like Windows is not seeing the change that the BIOS utility did. The intriging part is that on some machines, the script will work and the software will see the change. We have run the script numerous times, on multiple machines and on our different models but we can determine any patern and identify why it sometimes work. I was wondering if this is a known issue and if anyone already encoutered this. Thank you,

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 foolishly enabled the options in the BIOS system configuration - Drive tab trying to make an external eSATA cable recognised my spare hard drive. 
How the Dell E6230 will not boot and will not POST.
I am unable to access the BIOS to reset to default or to disable the SATA 4/5 toggles.
Is there any way to 

1. Restore the default BIOS settings
or
2. Flash the BIOS from a USB or CD to get the computer to reboot.
I have discovered that the BIOS is doing something to the RAM modules
pressing FN+POWER cause the Battery LED to flash white. All other LED are BLANK
The RAM modules when placed in another E6230 then refuse to work until a memory test is carried out to wipe them! 
This would go against everything I know about RAM modules not retaining information after powering off but this is what I found.
Thanks in advance.

I have 5000+ HP computers where we would like to use the BCU to modify the boot order.  The test computers all have the latest version of the BIOS installed.  We are initiating the boot order change from a remote computer.  All seems to go well, as in no errors received or displayed.  However, the boot order does not change. Or, even stranger, the boot order seems to change but when the target computer is rebooted, the boot order reverts to what it was originally.  I threw a lot of rocks at this but none have hit anything yet.  Thanks for suggestions.

Hi there,
A buddy of mine has been driving me nuts about is MSI and ASUS netbook both with Win 7 automatically CPU throttling, mostly while he is on AC power.

Anyone got any ideas for a good quality CPU control utility?

He's looking to create "profiles" of sorts, so that when on AC, the netbook is always full blast at 1.6 GHz. And when on battery, its auto throttle....which i think it does already, but you get the idea.

I remember having good experience with NHC notebook hardware control....but its quite dated.

I know the asus eee's have the "super hybrid utility" thing, but it seems that even when its set to "super performance" and on AC, it still drops the CPU down to 700MHz. pretty stupid if you ask me.

Anyways, thanks for reading.
Any and all suggestion are greatly appreciated.

Hi all. I have Win 7 Ultimate. I recently bought a usb turbotenna to catch wifi. It worked fine with the Ralink software. Ralink worked in conjunction with wzc as I set it up that way while installing the software. After a few days, I had what I thought was trouble so I uninstalled the Ralink software. I then plugged in the usb adapter and let windows load it's own drivers. Few days after that, I reinstalled the Ralink software and opted to "Use wzc as configuration utility" instead of using Ralink's. Ever since then, while I can still see and log on to networks using windows, the Ralink utility now shows NO networks. It now shows, "NIC or driver not ready". After several uninstall/reinstall, Windows will not relinquish it's primary control. I want to go back to Ralink showing networks and letting me connect through it's site survey.

Would uninstalling the Broadcom wireless connection be the solution? How do I get it to once again be secondary?

A:How do I get Win 7 to not use WZC as configuration utility?

Hi Techdude1,

Having a wireless utility manager running and take control of wireless connection can/may conflict with the native WLAN Auto Config if both are enabled. You may uninstall the utility but make sure that WLAN Auto config is on started mode if you want to go with thir router. Others have luck using the other way. See which one would work best for you.

Today after boothig up I was back to 1st base again. so I did the routine that the tech guy walked me thru and things are again working.
At one point when I had the tech guy on the line he said that my computer (Dell 2400) was likely booting up wrong, we went to the "System Configuration Utility and this is how it is laid out.

Button Diagnostic Startup
Button Selective Startup (This is Checked)

Box Process Win.ini file (This is checked)
Box Load startup items (This is checked)
Button Use original boot ini (This is checked)

I've been having problems getting Dlink wireless adapters to work on my system. It's Win98se and when I get to the point of loading the configuration utility the system freezes.

I've managed to get what looks like a good driver for the PCI card installed but I can't install the wireless configuration utility from the CD without also installing the driver from the CD which will replace the working driver I have now. I have tried that several times and it always freezes the system when loading systray.

I got Dlink Tech Support to get me through the process of loading current drivers but they have told me I must use a 3rd party configuration utility since Win98se does not have such a utility built in. That's when they stop talking to me.

I tried Boingo but is fails with a Globals fatal error.

Does anyone know of any other wireless configuration utilities I might be able to sue?
 

A:wireless configuration utility

Have you tried downloading Dlink's utility from their web site?

My experience with several adaptors is that on the manufacturer's web site the utility and driver are bundled for download, so you get the right utililty for the version of the driver.

I have home-worked the net and got nowhere so far, so I will ask my friends here. This unknown intruder has the impressive name of - Browser Configuration Utility Auto-Recovery Service.

Recently, I have noticed BCU.exe and BCUService.exe pop up in my Active Processes List. I do not know where it came from or what program owns it. The providers appear to be DeviceVM.
It takes 296K of Memory, with a memory peak of 2,212K and 712K VM. It all sounds one hell of a lot of resource. AND for whom or what ?

I have disabled BCU.exe using CCleaner and Blocked the files using Comodo Defense+, but it still comes up on the running processes and keeps asking Comodo to modify the Registry key which is disabled every few seconds. Consequently the Comodo Defense Events are growing at a massive rate.

The whole thing is a pain. I wish I could quarantine every bit of it, but none of my several security programs pick it up as a threat.

Please can anybody tell me what this parasite is ? Where did it come from ?
How can I get rid of it ?
The only download I have recently had worth a mention is Sandboxie - surely that did not place this nuisance on my PC ?

Any explanations and help will be greatly appreciated.

Browser Configuration Utility is not a virus or dangerous. I assume you have a Gigabyte motherboard and when installing the system this program gets installed.There is also a readme file stating "The Browser Configuration Utility is an easy-to-install, easy-to-use, powerful search engine." I found it here on a Windows 7 system -- C:\Program Files\DeviceVM\Browser Configuration UtilityThis file mentions"The Browser Configuration Utility is an easy-to-install, easy-to-use, powerful search engine.""In the Address Bar of either Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8, type the string of characters you want to search for, then press the <Enter> key.

MCI has to do with communications devices and I believe multi-media as well.

since is has the ".BAK" that would give the impression that it was backed up brolly due to some system changes.

Uncheck it, reboot the system and test your functionality. *IF* things still work, you should be able to safely remove it.
Good Luck!

MSCONFIG.EXE is a troubleshooting tool - not a fixing tool.First, re-enable them in MSCONFIG, then use this free tool to locate them and disable/delete them: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/Autoruns.mspxIf you have difficulties with this tool, post back and we'll see if we can get the address for another one from garmanma.

After going to MSConfig, switching the BOOT.INI tab to Safe Mode and rebooting. I then ran Hijack, checked and fixed 04-Global Startup:Winlogon.exe. Then I went back to MSConfig, unchecked Safe Mode and attempted to reboot again. Now I get the following message:

System Configuration Utility
You have used the system config util. to make changes to the way windows starts. This system config util is currently in Diagnostic or Selective start up mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time windows starts, choose the normal start up mode on the general tab to start windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system config util.

When other users try to log on they get the following:

System Configuration Utility
An access denied error was created while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the selected changes.

In the System Configuration Utility "General Tab" it ask to select either the original Boot.INI or the Modified Boot.INI

How do I get all this back to normal without undoing the changes I made to get rid of the trojan?

When I go to "start" "run" and type in "msconfig" I get an error message that says the file can't be found. Any idea on where to find it?

I just noticed that I have blank square boxes under startup item and command fields of the system configuration utility under startup items. Has anyone else seen this? If so what is it and how do I get rid of it.

A:System Configuration utility

I just (today) overcame this...I'm not sure at all how it happened or what may have caused it, so I can't really be of much help.

My situation started a couple of days ago when I suddenly had these messages at startup which referred to files which could not be found. I used a combination of Autoruns, msconfig, and regedit...to track down and manually delete any/all references to these two files. My system now boots up normally .

So...I can't tell you what it was or how it happened but I can say that deleting any/all registry and file references took care of it on my system.

I don't think it was malware of any sort, but I'm no expert at determining such.

I am running Windows XP Professional. When i get into the Startup menu within the System Configuration Utility i can see a number of Startup Items listed together with the Command and Location description for each Startup item. The location description is the same for each startup item - "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run." However there are 3 boxes ticked under the Startup Item heading with no startup item details (blank), no details under the Command heading (blank) but under the Location heading it shows - "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run."
Can anyone tell me why I would have details showing under the Location heading in three instances but nothing showing under the corresponding Startup Item and Command headings?

does anyone know if there is a way to hide or remove a program from the System configuration utility in the start-up box without shutting down the program. I want to keep a program running but don't want anyone to see what it is running. I have a keylogger running to keep an eye on what/who my kids are talking to, but there very smart and know how to shut it down from the System configuration start up. So please if anyone knows how i can accomplish this please help. Thank you.
 

A:System configuration utility help.

I believe you can't run this utility unless you are the ADMIN. Make USER accounts for the kids. They can't access MSCONFIG. But then, if they know the process name of the program, then Ctrl+Alt+Del may allow them to end it anyway. Might be a 3rd party software that can do what you want.

In my Startup list there are a ton of listings. Only a few are checked however. What I was wondering is, is there any way to get the others out of the list? Removing programs and deleting files do not take them out. I know it doesn't hurt anything to have them there, they just bug me and I want them gone. Thank you for any help.

Gudday all
I have made some start-up changes using msconfig.
Once I rebooted the machine the following message appears, see attachment.
I want to keep the changes but the message seems to imply that I cannot.
If I check the box will the changes be accepted? Will this message appear every time I start?

A:Using XP System Configuration Utility

The changes have already been made. This is just a warning. As the label on the checkbox says, if checked it will not appear on next startup.

When I boot up in XP it is in selective startup and when I switch to normal startup I get all the programs I deleted in my start up system tray. This is like a seesaw, is there anyway I can select normal start up and delete the programs from my system tray at the same time, this is driving me crazy.
Another ? is when I was using ME there was a great password reminder program, does this exist in XP, If not is there any good programs other than Gator(YUCK), any suggestions much appreciated, thanks, Neesh

this is "startup cop" it will let you manage exactly what programs you have running at startup.
stay away from "gator" its spyware.
hope this helps.
good luck.

Hi Everyone,

Can you tell me if everything is okay here? I ask myself how can the Office Source Engine show stopped when it is checked?

Anyway, I would like to know how I can get rid of the STI Simulator which is an old entry that was left behind when I removed the software of my old webcam! Do you have an idea how I might be able to do so?

Thank you

A:System Configuration utility

Go into the Services and enable it

I think I provided you with this information in another thread

OSE.EXE is part of Microsoft Office software.
OSE.EXE is the system service called OFFICE SOURCE ENGINE.
OFFICE SOURCE ENGINE is required for reinstal, or install an "on demand" feature in Microsoft Office 2000/2003.
