Asus Laptop can't find startup entries for Asus Programs

Q: Asus Laptop can't find startup entries for Asus Programs

Asus has some way of starting their programs that I can't find. In particular, I want to disable their Wireless Console 3 (wcourier.exe). There are other programs but I can't remember what they are right now. I can only tell you that is does not show up in msconfig or HJT. Does anybody know where I can find these startup entries?



Preferred Solution: Asus Laptop can't find startup entries for Asus Programs

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.)

Try using Sysinternals Autoruns.
It lists a lot more than msconfig.

You can download the Sysinternals Suite, or just the Autoruns utility.

So my computer has been having multiple problems and it's driving me crazy. If I had the money, I would literally just get a new one and this one is only a year and a half old.

A few months ago, my laptop had this issue. I would turn it on and it would have a red "X" over the Internet Access icon on the start bar near the time. I would restart my laptop or uninstall the driver and reinstall it to fix it, which worked temporarily. Then it didn't work anymore and I had to plug in my laptop into my router to use the internet.

I went to Office Depot and they told me to just delete it and reinstall in from ASUS's website. I did and it worked but now I'm having the same issue again among others. I'm not even sure if I installed the correct driver although I made sure to research and everything before doing it and it did work back then. Now, it's doing the same issue and i don't know what to do at this point.

My laptop is an ASUS x550C (http://www.nix66.ru/images/photo/p/t...raft_large.jpg) running Windows 7 64 bit Professional. I'm not very good with computers in terms of all the detailed taking it apart so please don't ask me to do that. I think I'd just make it worse as I probably already have with just this.

A:ASUS Laptop cannot find wifi

Ok Clueless mate sounds very much like a problem I had with my new Asus ROG gamer laptop and I found the local Service Centre (if you can find one locally to you) was so much more help than the global and "local" (call centre in the Philippines) Asus sites but that is something you will have to find for yourself.

But in the meantime these are the latest drivers for your machine and it is always best to get them from the manufacturers as personally I find the Windows update feature not really much good.
http://www.asus.com/au/Notebooks_Ult...Desk_Download/ < from these download and install the LAN and wireless ones (just open them out and download the latest - usually the top ones) the others we might need to have a look at later.

Let us know how you get on and don't worry I don't think it will involve taking anything a part.

Just two things you can do are run these to make sure the OS system is running ok
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2
You can do that in safe mode if you want (power off and then power on while tapping F8)

I have an Asus K53E and my wireless Icon says "Not connected - no connections are available" !

Now what I've got and what I've tried . . . .

1) Intel I3 2350M CPU, 8 gb Ram, X64 Windows 7 Home Premium, Atheros AR9285 Wlan.

2) I've disabled and uninstalled the Atheros device and it's drivers (as well as d/led new drivers) and the associated Asus Wirelesss Console 3 manager!

3) At start-up the little stairs/steps looking icon for wireless connections has a blue spinning circle for a sec or two as if it sees a connection, but eventually reverts to a red X and give the above message, "Not connected - no connections are available" !

4) I've checked all of the network specific connection MS client, IPV4 etc . . .

5) I've scanned for spyware and for Virii, Eset Nod32 Smart Security 7 and Malwarebytes and although they found some insignificant virii and spyware (after removal problem still exists) maybe those items detected removed or corrupted necessary files?

6) The device in device manager under Network Adapters says, "This device is working properly"

7) 3 Other laptops within range connect fine wirelessly, and if I use a short cat5 jumper from the ethernet port on the Asus directly to one of the router ports on the all in one Comcast modem~wireless router this Asus K53E connects to the internet fine!

About a week after getting my new laptop, it began to not startup properly i.e. would turn itself off, even when I had shut it down correctly. This was not a major issue, and the laptop would work properly if you turned it back on again immediately.

Just today I switched on my laptop (same annoying shutdown on startup) used it for some time before switching it off. When i attempted to turn it back on later this afternoon, NOTHING works...

I am given 2 options on startup: "Launch Startup Repair" or "Start Windows Normally". When I press enter on the startup repair, it always brings up the same screen repeatedly. And when I try to start windows normally, the computer restarts.

If you press delete several times when the laptop is booting up, you can sometimes access the advanced startup settings (i.e. safe mode, last known settings etc) - I've tried most of these and none will work (system just restarts again). Also, I've pressed ESC and delete repeatedly and brought up a BIOS screen which recognises my HDD (SATA: PM FUJITSU)and my cd/dvd drive. I am given the choice to boot either of these but they bring me back to the same "Windows Recovery Error" page

Please help me, I need to use my laptop daily for important tasks/files
Thankyou vm

When I turn on my m51 series Asus laptop, I'm greeted with a "Widows Error Recovery" screen. My two options are "Launch Startup Repair (recommended)" and "Start Windows Normally". Selecting the startup repair option simply brings up the same exact screen, and starting normally restarts the laptop after going to the loading screen for a few minutes. Here's more of what the screen says:

Windows Error Recovery

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

If Windows files have been damaged or configured incorrectly, Startup Repair can help diagnose and fix the problem. If power was interrupted during startup, choose Start Windows Normally.
(Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.)

I bought this laptop in the spring of 2008. I just got back from living in Germany for a year and I think the voltage or whatever over there must have messed up my battery, because it wont hold a charge. I was fine with this, because as long as I keep my laptop plugged in, it's not really a problem. But a few days ago, I came home from school and turned on my laptop and this happened.

Maybe my internal battery finally died after letting my computer shut down so many times on it's own by just leaving it unplugged and in sleep or battery saving mode. So maybe the bios settings got messed up when the motherboard battery died or something, and I just need to change them. I'm not too good with computers,... Read more

I've had my ASUS K55A laptop for just over a year now.

I was using it fine one night, turned it off correctly and went to sleep.

The next day I went to use it and when I turned it on it only displayed a black scree (no display).

I can't even hear the fan or eject the disc tray.

I've tried it with the battery and without, with the charger plugged in and without.

All the LED Symbol lights flash green apart from the battery light which flashes orange when the battery is connected and even when it's disconnected.

I've tried the holding my finger on the power button to drain the battery but it didn't work either.

I've ordered a new battery as I've read that some laptops can only function properly with a battery....

Anyone got and advise or diagnostics?

Any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance.

A:my asus laptop (windows 8.1) freezes 10 min after startup.

I would check for overheating due to dust buildup. Get some canned air and blow out the vents that cool the cpu. (with the laptop off). Blow in both directions. You have to be careful not make the fan in there spin too fast, so just use short bursts of air, or stick a toothpick in there to keep the fan from spinning. Also for the file corruption you can try running DISM DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

I'm posting about an Asus laptop that's been going into a loop of showing the Windows Startup Repair screen, with selecting Launch Startup Repair causing nothing to happen, and Start Windows Normally leading to windows attempting to start before failing and restarting, looping back to the Launch Startup Repair screen.
It started acting like this in 2012, and since I wasn't able to fix it at the time, I bought a new one. However, since my current laptop's charger is broken and it'll take a couple of days for it to arrive, I figured I'd take another crack at it.
The laptop runs Vista, and I can't be 100% certain but as best I can remember it's 32-bit. I bought it secondhand in 2009, so I don't have an installation disc.
I'm able to access the Advanced Boot Options screen, but the last known good configuration doesn't work, nor does starting in safe mode. The last driver it lists while attempting to load safe mode with command prompt before crashing is crcdisk.sys.
Disable automatic restart on system failure doesn't appear to work either, as it'll bring a stop error screen, I'll restart it manually, and then it'll crash and restart automatically again.
The error codes from the stop screen are
STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190444, 0x8805222D8, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)

I was using my laptop like normal and closed the lid when I had to leave the house in a hurry. Three hours later I return and now I´m having problems. I opened the laptop and and pressed the power button and it stayed on the ASUS startup screen, the little wheel on the bottom that shows it´s booting is not there. Just the logo and that´s it. I tried fixing it myself, looking online for help.
I am able getting into the BIOS utility place and everything seems normal to me but I´m not able to boot. Per advice online, I downloaded the microsoft media installation (is that what it´s called?) on a USB using my husband´s laptop. I plugged it into my laptop and after a few attempts I figured out I could use the USB entering the BIOS utility and select it as a boot option.
Selecting ¨repair my computer¨ I was able to get into the blue screen to see more options. I first went into Repair, as it searched for errors and repair options, it told me to do a system restore. I did that. It took around 3 hours to finish however I was able to get into my files and see that everything was there like before. This was sadly only a 15 minute fix as the computer went into a black screen as I was reading something on Word and then went into an update process. I put the laptop on my desk as I had other things to do. That evening, I go to use my laptop. It was on sleep. I press the power button to wake it up and it gives me the same thing, stuck on the ASUS logo, no pinwheel.

Not sure I understand how you could perform a factory reset if you don't have the recovery partition available. You should have gotten an error that the ASUS Recovery Partition could not be found.

You would need to get to a working computer and download either the Media Creation Tool for W10, or the current ISO from MSTechBench. You can use RUFUS to create a bootable flash drive, and then install W10 that way.

You might also want to check the health of your hard drive, to make sure it's not failing.

Hope that helps!

I have in my possession an Asus X550CA laptop which was running Windows 8.1 before it failed to boot. The machine cycled through the automatic repair, failed, and then did nothing. The advanced bootup options were useless, including chkdsk, sfc and the usual suspects. The recovery partition was apparently missing, atleast, I couldn't use it, but doing a diskpart confirmed it was there so I suspect the 8.1 upgrade broke the link to it.

I tried the "refresh your PC" option, but this told me the drive was locked, and disabling secure boot via the BIOS did nothing (thought it would at first). In addition, the reset your PC option wanted recovery media which I didn't have at the time.

I ordered the official Asus recovery DVDs as the laptop did not have media created when it was new, hit F9 and went to the "reset your PC' option, but it told me the recovery media wasn't valid. Odd given it's official Asus media from Mentor Media, for that specific machine.

From the legacy BIOS I booted from the DVD, it loaded the Asus specific Windows 8 recovery options from the disk and I get as far as "Start rebuild Windows system process", with "processing...." underneath and the machine does no more.

I've also tried UEFI booting from the DVD drive and get the same as above.

Any suggestions welcome please!


A:Unable to restore Asus X550CA using Asus recovery DVDs

Is the ASUS recovery media Windows 8.0 or 8.1? It may be because the recovery disks are 8.0 and it's a conflict because your now running 8.1. The 8.0 to 8.1 upgrade does break the factory recover feature on some laptops. ASUS for sure I think. I have a K75DE, that shipped with Windows 8.0. I clean installed with Windows 8.1 from here, Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help. It reads and uses my 8.0 OEM embedded code and activates online automatically. no muss no fuss. That tool will create a bootable USB thumb drive that will work with UEFI for you. If you need any more info just ask and i'll see if I can help. I don't know why your getting the "Start rebuild Windows system process" message and the lock up? It may be because the partition structure has changed on the Drive. I created a Recovery drive, then swapped in an SSD and it would not work on the SSD. It kept saying required partition missing. That's why I bailed and did a clean install. I was leaning in that direction anyway.

EDIT: If I don't get back to you tonight don't panic. I have company coming and may not get back online until tomorrow morning. Have to go now.

HI all,

I am having problems detecting the Xonar Pheobus and have tried all the pcie slots with no luck. Red and the grey - even the shorter grey slot.

Have disabled the motherboard's HD onboard sound too and still not detected in my devices......

The pcie cable is connected to the sound card and I have enough PSU to power all - Enermax 1250W.

When the card is inserted to the grey slots - The red light is seen through the control extension box (Headphone/Microphone Connector box) jack ports. However the green light is NOT seen AND the Xonar Phoebus logo on the card itself is lit (powered up)

However, when I insert the card into the red pcie slots these lights are not on.

One this else I noticed is the card DOES go warm over some time so tells me it is 'not' switched off........

I tried to install the driver and I get a message 'no card detected' etc etc.
Is there anyone kind enough to advise me their BIOS settings etc who has managed to get the Xonar to work properly. Did you have to adjust any BIOS settings from default to get the card to be recognised?

Printscreens would be cool if it is not too much of a bother.

Thank you in advance

Kind regards


A:Asus Xonar Phoebus and Asus Rampage 5 Extreme issue

The question(s) I have is ->
Am I missing anything when attempting to install the sound card? I have tried with no GPU drivers (including the Nvidia sound for the GTX 750 ti sc) / disabled onboard HD sound and still the sound card not detected.
Even in this motherboard, it should detect the sound card regardless of what sound source is set as default and then allow me to install it and set it as default (without messing about with the BIOS)?
Maybe my sound card has died when moving it from the last computer - Static death.....................

My almost 3 year old Asus X52 F3SV Notebook suddenly froze and shut itself down today. It will not boot past the 'Asus' logo screen. The furthest it got was 'loading windows', but quickly rebooted once that screen showed up.
It has been running quite hot lately, but i cleaned the fan out last weekend, and it had been running without problem since then.
I'm running Windows Vista Premium, with no other real problems until now, with up to date windows updates and regular Spybot and anti-virus scans.
There were random multicoloured lines running through the Asus screen on the first reboot after freezing. Could it be my graphics card? (Nvidia 8600m). I did not hear any crackling/popping sounds, so I really hope it's not dead yet.
I've looked around these forums, but couldn't find a similar problem/solution.

Thank you.

A:Asus x52 F3SV notebook not booting past Asus screen

Try running Bios defaults

This settings area can be called:
Bios Setup
CMOS Settings
System Setup
even just Setup
You can enter it by pressing the keyboard key that is displayed on your screen when first turning on your computer
Its sometimes:
A Fn Button like F1, or F2, or F10 or some other Fn key
DEL key
(whatever the computer states on screen when you first turn on your computer)
Once in Bios Setup, locate Setup Defaults (sometimes called Optimized Defaults)
Apply it, then Save and Exit Bios Settings (which is usually F10, but it will tell you in the Bios Settings screen)

If that doesn't help try reming and re-seating your Ram cards (even your hard drive)
You can download your Manual to find the locations of these components, but they are usually located under the laptop, under the covers

If it is your Video card (onboard) then that was be a big concern
You may need to locate the disassemble guide online, then blow out all internal dust

It may also require a CheckDisk scan
You can read HERE on how to do that outside Windows

Tried to get HP support to give some similar board model from ASUS' own models so I could get the correct Asus AI Suite to control fans, read system info. The similar Asus model they gave didn't even have the same chipset. I'm not sure if that truly matters as far as their AI Suite working correctly. Just need a reliable program to adjust case fan speeds a bit. Simpler is better.

1) Does anyone know how I can cross the HP / Asus board w/ some similar model on Asus' site to get the correct version of AI Suite?

2) If no to # 1, suggestions on reliable prgms that will allow controlling fan speeds?
Fairly sure this mobo has the ability to adjust fans. 1st tried SpeedFan - no options to adjust any fans (reports them), but MSI Afterburner had no trouble adjusting GPU fan.

None of several socket 775 boards I looked at on Asus' site had G33 chipset.

The info HP has for this mobo is

Manufacturer's motherboard name: Asus IPIBL-TX
HP/Compaq name: Burbank-GL8E
Form Factor Micro-ATX: 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) x 24.4 cm (9.6 inches)
Chipset Intel G33
Front-side bus speed 800/1066/1333 MHz (processor dependent)

CPU: AMD64 Athlon X2 4400+
Motherboard: ASUS A8N32-SLI DELUXE
Memeory: SAMSUNG PC3200 2GB (1GB x 2) DDR400

Status: After installing Windows XP SP 2 and the ASUS motherboard installation CD, the system won't take the drivers for the GPU. System boots to the Windows XP loading screen and remains there. The little green bar just keeps moving like it's loading Windows but it loops forever. Again, this started happening right after installing the nVidia drivers from the graphics card installation disc. If I power down manually and then power back up again, I can go into "the last known good" but every time I try to load drivers again, the system starts doing this. The latest drivers from nVidia cause the same issue. I'm starting to think this is a driver conflict with the ASUS motherboard chipset or the motherboard RAID drivers. Has anyone else had a problem like this?

A:ASUS A8NSLI-32 Deluxe + ASUS En7600GS Silent Trouble

Followup: I was able to fix it and thought I'd post this info since it might help others who might have the same problem. After reading through dozens of pages here and in the ASUS forums, I discovered that one of my default BIOS setting mysteriously ended up in a non-default state. For some reason, the RAID option for Silicon Image was set to RAID. That's fine for those how actually want to setup RAID but I didn't plan to use RAID at the time. After making the change to the BIOS, I had to install Windows XP again to get everything registered correctly. Once Windows was up and running, I avoided the motherboard chipset install CD all together by using only the newest versions of all the motherboard drivers directly from the ASUS website. Problem solved!

I am putting this in the general forum section, and please bear with me. I had posted earlier a thread about my Asus Ultrabook backlit keyboard not illuminated. Thank you all that have responded to that post, but nothing worked. I ended up sending in my Asus for RMA and warranty repairs.

Here is where the fun starts. I first made my case with Asus and they informed me that my Serial Number was invalid. I told them that it is wrong as I bought the Laptop from MemoryLabs.com, which is a Certified Asus Re-seller. It even posts their name on their website in "Where to Buy Asus".

Please do not take this as racist or anything derogative, but the Asus support staff are all located in India, and there is no way to talk to a person in America. The repair facility is also contracted out to a company called BizCom in Milpitas, California. Now, the men and women who work at the support center in India do their best, but to my understanding, they are a separate company working to just take calls. Same with the BizCom company, which they are great, but again contracted so there is nobody who works for Asus or knows Asus's RMA system.

My laptop has been sitting at the repair center with no updates from Asus. When I contact the support center directly, they said the Serial Number was Invalid and that they had to talk to Asus about the warranty service. I though Asus already fixed this when I sent them my Invoice of the Laptop and that it was a certified Reseller?

A:Asus UX51VZ-IS71T: Question on Asus Support?

I had correspondence with ASUS via e-mail. It was a while ago now, I think it was a link on their web site. It was a waist of time really. I wasn't impressed. Replies took forever and the answers seemed to be scripted responses. I eventually just gave up asking any more questions. My issue was with creating recovery media. At that time there was no way of creating a recovery disk set in Windows 8.0. The utility I was referred to only worked in Windows 7. It became a non issue when I put an SSD in my laptop and did a clean install of 8.0.

Most of those contracted out call centers go by a flow chart. Ask this question, if the answer is yes, take this branch, if its no, take this other branch. The person asking you the questions may have no technical background at all. As soon as you say I don't know, your basically screwed. Assuming you can actually understand what they are saying. I'm not racist, but I don't think its unreasonable to be able to talk to somebody that is fluent in my native language. It seems to be the luck of the draw sometimes. I've had some that I could understand easily, and some that were almost impossible to understand.

So I recently just replaced my Asus P6X58-E WS with another Asus P6X58-E WS from Amazon. I always remember hearing to ignore the drivers disk on CD that comes with product and go straight to web-sight and gather latest. (I ALWAYS keep CD for just in case moments) When I was running Win7 last year on old MB, this was never a issue and downloaded drivers from Asus web site, but when I recently went to the Asus drivers download site, there are no options for win8? (Screen Shot Below)
Here Is my problem... After Installing new MB and testing OS operations with only my SSD pluged in (OS win8 is on SSD) everything was working great!! this also confirmed a few of my last MB memory slots were fried because I had 18GB of memory installed but BIOS & OS was telling me I had only 6GB.. Im back @ 18GB now...
I also had QTY6 1TB-HDD I was using with previous MB ( No raid configurations) I record music and many project files can get very big so, each HDD was dedicated to different "IMPORTANT" things. Well, after confirming OS win8 was in working order, I powered down and plugged in all 6 HDD, then powered back up. (I wish I would have done this one HDD at a time now) only 2 are being recognized!!! I keep getting the message....
"you must initialize a disk before logical disk manager can access it"
Now, from what I've gathered from a Google search, this is what you would do to format a NEW hard drive, Correct? I then was reading its as simple as downloading lates... Read more

A:NEW!! Asus P6X58-E WS MB. No Win8 Drivers on Asus website?

From what I found on the Asus site....
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P6X58-E WS
They are only providing drivers up to Windows 7 64 Bit. You can go to the file manager and click one time on the primary HDD and then click computer tab and from there click on manage. From there you click device manager and you will get a list of your hardware. You can right click on each one and click update driver and the system will try to find the updated driver for you. If anything you now have your hardware name and can try to get the updated driver through the actual company who builds the drivers.

It also does sound like you may need to format the HDD's. Do the same thing but instead of clicking on device manager you will click on disk management and you can right click on each drive and select to format. Just make sure to not format the primary partition if that is even possible.

Hi im trying to max out my Asus G50VT-X1 and I read the most RAM it can handle is 8gb of SO-DIMM DDR2 200-pin memory (total) at 800mhz.
I cannot find any 4gb modules to fit those specs however.
2 areas of debate may be what the max ram is, 4 or 8 gb and if the chipset can handle 667mhz or 800mhz but i dont want any debate about that unless you have some proof, links or otherwise that doesnt just redirect to another forum :P

But a link to such a RAM module would be appreciated.
Thanks !

Helllo everyone,

I wanted to buy the Radeon HD 6870 but it's not on the market here anymore, so I will have to buy another one -- hopefully not the HD 7850 xD. So, which one should I pick: the ASUS EAH6850, or the ASUS ENGTX560. Give your reasons please. I need the answer before Wednesday (2nd of May)

I read stuff about both of these, I'm really "new" to NVIDIA but I am also confused now. Asked people, some say Radeon, some say GeForce... I really don't know. Help me out, I'll appreciate it.

Ask away for more info if you need to.

A:ASUS HD 6850 or ASUS GTX 560 (non-Ti, DirectCU, 810MHz)?

I have always been an ATI/AMD fan when it comes to video cards so I'm gonna say go with the 6850. I have one and it is great. It is typically cheaper than the Nvidia and is slightly higher on Passmark's benchmarks. Also, I totally agree with Asus as a brand as they are one of the bests.

Whenever I click on the Asus Update on Asus Suite II it automatically gives me a BSOD. It then tells me to update the driver. I uninstalled Asus Suite II and installed the latest version from the Asus website. It still gave a BSOD when I clicked Update.

Same as topic. Wondering if the Hero was worth the extra 50 bucks or so in terms of reliability, features, etc. Reliability is a big factor for me so if you think Hero is a bit more stable for the extra 50$ then please let me know. Thank you!

P.s. In case you were wondering I am building a gaming/video editing pc for around 1500 bucks

A:Asus Maximus VI Hero or Asus Z87-A LGA 1150

The Maximus VI Hero is no more stable than the Z87-A. The Maximus is more gamer oriented due to its overclocking features (which the Z87-A has, but not to that extent). If you can get a Z87 Sabertooth, that is probably the best in terms of reliability because it protects the components from dust.

Just bought a new computer and put it together, after some failed starts etc the Asus P5K Deluxe tells me that it wants a bios recovery and starts searching in USB/CD/Floppy, so I decide to give it a go and shove in the Asus CD. It finds p5k.rom (or similar) and starts programming it says, after that it reboots and now I just cannot get past the AMIBIOS logo where it's supposed to find the hardware.

It gets stuck, but if i leave it for a while it draws huge black lines all over the screen with itty pieces of text in it, like the sata name and 800 and 1024 etc, the only thing that it finds fully is the CPU, which is a Intel Core 2 Quadro 2,4.

I have tried resetting bios and everything, but seeing as how I can't even get into the friggin bios it's quite hopeless this .. I really want my new comp to start Please help!

I found out that my video card wasnt strong enough, i thought it was. And i found a new one, but i cant find the drivers for it. So far, the info i do know about it is that its an Asus A9200SE. Does anyone know where i could get these drivers? And any other info you could give me to help me would be great. Thanks for your time!

P.S. I tried closing every other program while running the game. But it didnt help.

My daughter called me and said "I can't start Win 7". She has it passworded.

I can't get to the screen to enter password.

I can't repair, system restore or enter safe mode.

Asus G60 laptop does not come with an install disk. It's a recovery disk; which I don't want to do because I would lose all her data.

So I bought a copy of Win 7 professional upgrade and another SATA drive 320 gigs.

I pulled out the laptop drive and I connected it to my desktop PC. I can see all the files. I took ownership of it and scanning the drive with Malwarebytes. (So far nothing).
I'm thinking of reinstalling Win 7 on the new hard drive and then copying over her data from the old drive.

Any other suggestions or comments?

A:Asus G60 can't startup Win 7

When booting up with the recovery disk instead of performing a full restoration back to factory look for the repair tools also generally one of the F8 boot menu options when 7 has startup problems. The repair tools section includes an automatic startup repair option that will scan and repair problems preventing Windows from loading.

With the purchase of a new 7 install disk and brand new drive the option is always there to unplug the first drive long enough to see a clean install of Pro on it and then back files up from the first drive. Once saved you can perform a full recovery on the original drive and still have all files and data safe on the new drive for copy back to it.

First try the repair tools options however to see if its only a simply startup problem in order to preserve the preinstalled copy as well as all files and settings. If all efforts should fail then the option to OS the new drive as a recovery tool would be needed.

Twice now I've tried to turn my pc on and the only thing that happens is the Caps Lock light and the left most light of the four power up lights turns on. At that point nothing I do affects the pc. In the morning the battery of the computer is dead and it starts up normally. I know the computer tried to load updates a number of times in a row before this happened the first time. (The second time was some weeks later).

Any suggestions would be welcome.

A couple weeks ago, I noticed Youtube videos and Pinterest images wouldn't display on my Firefox, saying Java wasn't updated.  I double-checked, and I had the latest version.  But slowly, other things started not working.  It wouldn't display pictures.  I couldn't watch any videos or anything even on Chrome.  Now I can't even open my browsers.  I've backed up my docs and was going to do a full wipe of the drive if I had to, but I didn't want to.  Instead, I tried a system restore with several dates.  None of them would work.  I also tried the system diagnostic repair, and it said it could not be repaired.  Over the past week or two, it's said I am missing several dll files.  I think the first one today was gdi.dll and now it's saying I can't open any program because I'm missing LPK.dll.  I can boot it up and see my desktop, but that's about it.  Of course it has Windows 7.  Should I try something before reformatting?  Because honestly, I only have a Win98 disk and don't have any idea how to access Windows on the partition that supposedly backs it up.  Thanks in advance!

Recently purchased a new <b>A7M266-D</b> dual AMD mobo and populated it with two AMD 1600(m)s. I'm trying to boot off of a new <b>100GB WD Caviar</b>. I've attached it to the primary EIDE bus (as master) and connected a generic <b>DVD</b> (slave) as well. I've attached a <b>floppy</b>.

The motherboard can't see the harddrives but Linux can. After using a DVD to boot into Linux (which installed nicely on the WD1000), I can see the harddrives and partition them and install software and do whatever I wish... everything but actually boot off the hard-drive.

Before installing, I disabled the boot virus protection. I think I've written a proper MBR and activated the boot partition where Lilo was installed.

Shortly after detecting the harddrive and DVD, the system reports: "<b>Primary master drive fails</b>".

If I enter bios <i>before</i> the "drive fails" message, the bios appears to be able to detect the drive. The "Primary Master" setting (set to "Auto") detects the drive and reports the proper statistics.

If I enter bios <i>after</i> the "drive fails" message, the bios can't be convinced that the harddrive is available. The bood device entry for the HDD allows the choice "None" or "Disabled".

I've tried the whole process with several harddrives (30GB WD, 10G... Read more

You can always check Crucial.com to find out what your motherboard will accept and the capacity. Once you know this, you can go to any retailer you normally buy computer parts from....in store or online.

When you talk about memory and cards, people could mistake that for the kind that you use with a digital camera. Typically, the "cards" of memory that you use in your computer are known as sticks or chips.
