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.)

The Debian Live project is no more, and its leader announced that it had been absorbed by the debian-cd and the debian-installer teams, without his knowledge or approval.

A new heated discussion has been started inside the Debian project after Daniel Baumann, the leader of Debian Live, announced that this particular project was officially dead. He says that Debian Live has been hijacked by other developers inside Debian, and he wasn?t even consulted in this matter.

That shouldn't happen if they will just do it from the flaw, and as a team; its must be fairly treated on how to handle those situation especially their OS contains major issues and bugs that should be fix instead of arguing.

Still many users can choose on all hundreds of derivatives that are fully active in development.

I just want to know if I'm the only one with this problem.  I have the latest update/firmware installed. Something when I browse the web, or change rapidly from one application to another (ex : Web to Word) The screen turn black for 1 sec.   It doesn't always happen, but enough times that I starts to bother me. The display is connected on the dockstation by a DVI or dualport connector (don't remember).  My monitor is a Dell.

I am attempting to dock an Acer Aspire 5723Z laptop running Windows 7 64-bit into the Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Dockstation Model # FSU216 which the supplier provided with the laptop as being compatible.

When the devices are connected, the (Edge10 GB19XX) monitor display switches off when I close the laptop. The screen resolution does not always readjust.

In Devices in Control Panel under Unspecified it says IEEE-1284 controller USB hub ? ?Needs troubleshooting?.
If I right click and click ?troubleshoot? it says the driver is not installed. When I click ?apply this fix? it tells me the driver was not successfully installed. If I click ?skip this fix? and then ?view solution? it says ?a solution is not available for this problem.?
When I originally attempted to install the drivers from the disk I got an error message that it did not have permission to copy a particular file. I tried to uninstall the device a number of times. Each time I went back though control panel afterwards, it asked me again whether I wanted to uninstall the device, which implied that it had not been successfully uninstalled the previous time.

Belkin claim they don?t have drivers for Windows 7 64-bit - only for Vista 32-bit.

Does anyone know a way to get these devices interoperating so that the display works properly?

If not, does anyone know of a docking station which will work OK with this laptop/OS?

Regards Keith

A:Display problems with Belkin Hi-Speed USB Dockstation

Wow. Except for the model number on your laptop, you and I have exactly the same problem with exactly the same docking station--the VGA support for Win7/64. I got around it by using the HDMI port on my laptop and hooked in a small HDTV I wasn't using. Does your device support HDMI? It's one way around the problem.

Also, have you been able to get your printer to work via the parallel port? Mine won't send the page to the printer.

Probably it is not possible but I will ask anyway.
My laptop (Dell Inspiron 15) stands on cooling pad, which is connected on the D3100 USB port. If I turn of the laptop the fan in cooling pad turns off. But after a few seconds fan starts to work again as D3100 has its own power source. So I also have to disconnect D3100 from the power or disconnect cooling pad from the D3100 to turn off the fan in the cooling pad.
Is there anyway to tell D3100 to turn off power from USB ports when there is no connection with laptop?
And of course I could connect the cooling pad to the laptop. But that is what D3100 should be for.

Hi ! Just bought a thinkpad x260.I had another laptop before where Debian was already installed.So i took its SSD and put it in my x260.Then I've configured the bios, deactivated secure boot, verified that UEFI boot is enable and changed boot order to boot on the SSD.I started the computer, and nothing.Like there is nothing on the SSD. So, I don't know that I can do.The .efi file is stored here : /boot/efi/EFI/debian/grubx64.efi I don't know where the bios search for an EFI file, or if I can change the place where it searches for it. Does anybody here have any clue ?Not sure if the bios is configured well. Thank you !

A:X260 debian

If you want to boot from EFI then you gota reinstall your debain os since when installing debain in legacy mode it will only work in legacy mode so to get it to work in UEFI mode then you gota reinstall debain under UEFI mode then it will boot, there might be another way to solve it but idk if it's the right way todo it.

A:Debian & Bootrecord Problems

Debian is probably one of the most stable, though maybe not user friendly.

It sounds like the your machine is not booting from the CDROM possibly. Try with another bootable disk and see if it boots (ie. an Knoppix disk or something). If it does boot from another CD, you may have a bad burn of the Debian disk. Verify the MD5 of your download and burn it again.

If your new to linux, I would suggest a different distro. Right now I'm hooked on VectorLinux. Its based on Slackware and is pretty full featured.

Hi there. Not sure if this is the right section or not...

Anyway tried my hand with Debian, I'm very new ti all of this and for a number of other reasons I wanted to go back to Windows. I popped in Windows 7 Cd and initially couldn't get it to boot at all. Had to enable legacy something or other in bios and then it booted to the cd no problem.

Selected to install clean copy, chose language etc and then got the partition screen. Anyway I couldn't install because partition was GPT style or something. I started trying to find away around this but to no avail. Pretty sure I deleted my Debian stuff in the process because now when I try go out of the Windows installation I get grub rescue.

Any way I can now install from this Windows CD?

Hey. I have peculiar problem, which i encountered recently after i have switched from win7 to 8 and from ubuntu to debian.
 
I have asus u36 sg ( i5, gf 610m, 4gb RAM, 128gb SSD) which has 2 USB 2.0 ports and one 3.0. The thing is, that when i start win8, the mouse connected to USB 2.0 (any device, stick etc.) port is dead.Suprisingly, when I start debian, it works totally fine
 
And now comes the fun part. When i reboot the system, after launching debian first and than select win8, the ports work!
I noticed that happend shortly after I accidently plugged off my laptop from power (the battery is out because the laptop is on my desk for most of the time) and i think it might be the cause. Could there be any short circuit that caused it? If so, why it's acting so weird. Win8 drivers are updated, and the other 3.0 port works fine under any circumstances...
My next step will be to reinstall win8 back to 7 and see if anything changes..

Hi there
After messing around I've finally given uo on OPENSUSE -- has a nice beautiful desktop but I don't like the new releases every so often and it isn't the most stable for getting a VM server to run.

I after a lot of persuasion was persuaded to try DEBIAN - latest version with KDE --

Well I wish I had used it earlier -- the package manager (software istaller) - absolute breeze with APT GET - whatever

Installing the KVM hypervisor was fine and this must be the snappiest Linux system I've ever tried (apart from the specialized tiny distibutions).

First VM (XP) running just fine --will be virtualising a W2003 server next and some other stuff.

What I like with this HYPERVISOR is that you can control the VM's from the HOST if you want -- Esxi requires a separate WINDOWS machine.

Debian perhaps isn't the best for beginners but it's so stable and installing software is SIMPLE. Well worth getting to grips with.

(Multi-media - VLC and dragonplayer) work right out of the box too -- no messing around with untangling installed stuff (OPENSUSE) and replacing with PACMAN repository data).

Cheers

A:A very Happy Camper with DEBIAN WHEEZY and KVM

I haven't done the Linux thing in awhile. But the best thing was moving to Debian derived distros. I used Red Hat package tool and it seemed that there were different schools of thought where stuff should go depending where I got the package from. I switched to Mandrake 9.1. Everything on OneCD which booted and enabled the network card. After disk partitioning and all that you move to package selection. Tons of software development tools etc..

When software package selection was complete, you hit the go button. All the packages that weren't on the CD downloaded and installed. You reboot and you're at a window manager login prompt. With apt-get the stuff just goes where it's supposed to and it works when you run it. It brought Linux up to what a Windows user expected, which is run the installer then you can use the software with virtually(pun intended) no configuration. Light years ahead with no ripping out of hair.

Edit: and the same held true after install. If I got another package using apt-get a week or 6 months later... it was just plug and play.

A:Debian 3.1 Screen Size Problem....

Smaller? Do you actually mean a smaller resolution?

Or is your resolution like 320x200 or something?

In the first case, just add modelines to the X configuration file (/etc/X11/Xorg.conf IIRC). In the second, you're doomed, since that means your video card is not supported, at least not currently.

I have the same problem as one described here Win 7 won;t boot after installing Ubuntu dual boot (the last problem), excepting for having another linux distribution. So I won't describe it in more details. I've tried fixmbr and automatic repair, but it did't have any effect.
Has somebody any ideas?

ARCH LINUX PROS AND CONS

PROS-
- Arch linux has an aur for the latest packages but it is bleeding edge so there are bugs
- Arch can be customized to anything you want because you start at bare metal
- Arch has the latest kernel for linux or you can compile any from the aur

- ARCH LINUX CONS
- No ui out of the box
- not used for beginners
- not supported. people have to rely on the wiki and irc.
DEBIAN WEBSITE>

DEBIAN - PROS

- Ubuntu is based on debian so most ubuntu programs would work backwards compatibility

I stress that the purpose is to make BOTH windows and linux run, not just windows.

Hello Guys,

I've Linux Debian installed at my workstation. We are not allowed to remove it. But I would like to make the system dual-boot. Debian Lenny is already installed, How can I safely install Win7RC along with the Debian without losing any of the files/system/partition etc.

Thanks & Regards

A:How to: Dual-boot Linux Debian and Win7RC

well get a live CD with a partition editer... .. maybe a knoppix live cd? or minipe live cd? even the freespire CD has gparted (actually works unlike other gparted aps)

You need to find something that will resize a partition...

first defrag your computer in debian,
boot into one of those CD's and go to resize your current partition, make it big enough for win7, and install win7,
than download easybcd or vistabootpro or something.
when your in win7 (because it will get rid of your debian boot option) you can run vistabootpro (my recomendation) and set up the boot. works well

or get a 2nd hard drive and do it that way....

or if you really know linux, restore gnome after the fact, and add win7 onto the boot list

Hello, I've been trying to fix my MBR for Windows after I removed Debian from my computer. Every time I boot, it says "No Bootable Disk Found...", and it doesn't show it when I go to "Repair Windows", yet my OS is there (bootrec.exe /ScanOS sees it). I've tried bootrec.exe /FixMbr, but it didn't work. I've also tried /FixBoot and /RebuildBcd, but it have me an "Element not found" error. Any other ways to fix this? Thanks.

I have a 3TB hard drive that suddenly disappeared from Windows Explorer AND Device Manager. I rebooted but it was still missing. The BIOS shows it and Debian is able to mount + read files on it.
After I accessed it on Debian, it reappeared on Windows. I ran Seatools but my computer froze when Seatools was scanning for drives.
It seems that accessing the faulty drive causes Windows 7 to crash. How is this possible? What can I do to fix this?

A:Hard drive detected in BIOS and Debian but not Windows.

Please stick to one thread and do not create duplicate threads on the same topic.It does not help.
