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.)

A:help?!!! system and video bios shadowed????

Hi adri_t and welcome to TSF.

When you first boot your computer press the key that you normally would to enter BIOS, which will either be DEL, ESC or F2. If you are unsure how to access your BIOS then see if your motherboard is listed here. Once in BIOS you should be able to locate the area where you can Disable this feature. Look for a reference to BIOS/CMOS.
This can be safely disabled, but should you wish then you can re-enable it.

Here is a good article on Video BIOS shadowing.

I updated the BIOS on my Thinkpad R31 to what I believe is the latest version available (3.11), prior to upgrading the RAM memory. The computer runs on Windows XP, and it did not have any problems until I upgraded the memory from 512K to 1Gb.

The first time I turned on the computer, Windows started fine. I tired to install a new USB wireless adapter, and while running the installation wizzard the computer shut down and rebooted. I got a beep and a message saying that something was wrong with my anti-virus (Avast!). Windows did not start, and the computer kept rebooting until I would turn it off by holding the power button for a few seconds. Then I would get a black screen with messages reading "passed" for the memory, and "shadowed" for both the system and the video BIOS. Now I turn the computer on, and It goes straight to the windows welcome screen, displaying the icon of a user (it does not show the black screen with the system information anymore). When I click on the icon of the user, it does not prompt for a password (the computer was not set up to ask for a password to start windows). It shows the desktop - without any icons - for a fraction of a second, and then it goes back to the welcome screen. The only alternative I have from there is to click the shut down button.

Your help will be appreciated.

Change the ram back to the 512 mb stick. And see if problem still occurs, if all goes back to normal, then the new ram is faulty. Remember to hold ram sticks by the edges and don't touch the chips - static electricity will kill the ram.

Hello,

I've had my Satellite P100-160 for about five years now and have never had problems like this before.
A few weeks ago my system was not responding (or something like this) so I held down the power down button to turn it off.
Then, as it was turning on, it seemed to freeze upon the loading page and so I held the off button again.

The results of this are when I turn it on, I get a screen telling me several PCI busses etc are not working and it says "Video BIOS shadowed".
I then get the option to press F1 to resume or F2 to enter setup.

Also, one of my USB slots has completely stopped working and my card slot has also stopped working.
Can someone please help me? I am on Windows Vista, SP2.

Cheers,
Liam

A:Satellite P100-160 - several PCI busses are not working Video BIOS shadowed

Hi

I think you should access the BIOS (press F2 while notebook booting up) and should set it to default.
Then try to boot the Vista again and press F8.
Then you will get a advanced boot menu? there you should choose Repair Computer.
Vista supports an own internal repair option? you should try this and should repair the OS.

If this will not help and if you will still not able to boot up the Vista, then a system recovery might be the best option for you?

A:BIOS Files shadowed

Research says I have to restore my hard drive to factory settings.I'm not sure what research could have suggested to you that you'd need to restore the hard drive to factory condition to deal with a CMOS checksum error? And I'm glad you haven't been able to follow up on that advice... The commonest cause of a bad CMOS checksum is a flat CMOS backup battery. What brand and model is your laptop?

For the past 3 days, once/day, my Lenovo 3000 N200 shuts off by itself in the middle of use. It gives no warning signs and simply shuts off. I have also noticed over the past several months that the computer will only last a few minutes without being plugged in despite a full battery charge. Am not sure if this is related or not but I have had the computer plugged in every time it has shut off inexplicably. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong and what I need to check into?

Thanks!

Some more details: I am usually multi-tasking when this happens and the fan seems very active at the time it shuts off. Could the computer think it is overheating for some reason and how can I check this? It does not feel particularly warm anywhere.

On the Battery - I've had good luck and bad luck on buying batteries on eBay. Would I do it again? Yes. Would I go through with returning the battery if it failed as opposed to just eating the cost if it happened again? Yes. haha. That one was my bad but the people I dealt with were very considerate.

The downfalls - I've had a 'non-factory' battery purchased off of ebay work wonders for my Dell Inspiron 6400 but I bought one for my wife's Compaq CQ-60 and the battery connectors did not make good enough contact within the laptop. I could have sent it back but didn't and just bought an aftermarket one from Batteries Plus.

For your battery just do a quick search on eBay for 'battery' and your particular laptop brand & model to get a pricing idea.

The hard drive shouldn't be difficult if you wanted to replace it yourself however it would also involve you installing the operating system, finding all of the drivers for your system to run, etc. If that is something you are willing to do or you feel confident in doing I suggest it. I would use a good computer of a friends or relative's to acquire all of the drivers prior to taking this on yourself though. If you find it difficult to find (at least the major drivers like NIC, VGA, Sound) then I would probably suggest having a tech do it. It is no good to you to waste your time trying to fix it yourself and then taking it too a tech firm afterwards and then they take your money t... Read more

Check the cabling and jumpers to make sure the connection is good. Set it as single hard drive on cable, jumpered Master. See if it shows up in BIOS under HD's.

Download and burn to CD GWScan which is best version of WD Digital Lifeguard: GWSCAN 5.12 Unzips to C:Cabs where you can find ISO to burn.

Run the full HD CD scan, then boot into Win7 DVD or Repair CD, press Shift F10 to open a Command Line, type chkdsk /f then sfc /scannow. System Repair Disc - Create

If Win7 still won't start, boot into DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept offered repair. If fails, boot back in click through to Startup Repair to run up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts. If not, report back with exact error messages.

Hey guys.

A few weeks ago, I was watching a video on my Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop, and I was called away to do something. I had it running on the battery (as a power source). When I got back, I found that the laptop had shut itself off. I just assumed that the battery had run out and that the laptop had put itself into hibernation. However, now, the laptop only works if I have the AC power adaptor connected - just like a desktop computer, If I unplug the AC power, the laptop simply shuts off, which is obviously impractical and extremely annoying.

Funny thing, on my power options window, it informs me that a battery is connected, but the current power source is still the AC power. The battery does not charge at all, but if I bring up the little window giving me detailed information about my battery it tells me that the Power State is On Line.

Obviously there's a problem somewhere. Basically, I'd like to know if anyone has any idea whether this issue could be solved if I simply just buy a new/replacement battery, or whether there's something deeper that could be wrong.

I even bought a new laptop (with better specs), but I cannot get on with it (because of the limited screen resolution) and would love to be able to have my classic laptop back.

Any input is greatly welcome.

Thanks

Hi guys,

I have strange problems with my Lenovo 3000 N200 (0769) laptop.
I wasn't able to find similar problems on the net and I hoped that you could help me to diagnose them.

The problems are as follows:
1. When I turn on the laptop, nothing appears on the screen and there is no POST beep. After a few seconds the screen gets brighter (but still black).
2. If external monitor is attached, I'm able to use Fn+F7 to toggle the display. Then I get the menu where I can choose to boot in a safe mode or to start Windows (the operating system is Windows XP) normally, but the display is corrupted - there are strange vertical lines on the screen. Here is how it looks:
imageshack.us/photo/my-images/696/dsc00010gr.jpg/
I tried that on two different screens and the result was the same.
3. If I choose to start Windows normally, the Windows logo is displayed for a few seconds (also with vertical lines):
imageshack.us/photo/my-images/193/dsc00011io.jpg/
After that, I get this BSOD:
imageshack.us/photo/my-images/809/dsc00012lh.jpg/
And the computer reboots immediately.

All problems started at the same time.

I'm able to boot in a safe mode.
The minidumps are attached. I tried analyzing them using "PEBrowse Crash-Dump Analyzer", but it gives me the error message: "Incorrect crash-dump signature".

So far, I tried doing the following:

What are some things i can use to detect and get rid of the problems?

Are you using these basic security programs?(They're all free.)a? free - a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. a? fills this gap.Ad-Aware - A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.Spybot S&D - Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.SpywareBlaster - A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.SpywareGuard - A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.Important:Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...Run these programs in Safe Mode.How to start Windows in Safe ModeIf that doesn't help, then I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.Read the pinned post in the HijackThis forum, here Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link.

Earlier you assisted me in retrieving several missing Start > Power buttons. Now I noticed that when I right-click the task bar, "Start Task Manager" is shadowed out and I don't have access to it. Do you have a fix for this too?

A:Start Task Manager is shadowed out

How about letting us know what you did to precipitate this problem.

These problems don't happen on their little old lonesome.

choose a restore point for a point in time when your computer was in order and:

RESTORE TO A PREVIOUS SYSTEM RESTORE POINT
1) WIN | type SYSTEM RESTORE | ENTER | NEXT
| Choose a different restore point radio button | NEXT
2) Show more restore pointscheckbox (lower left)
3) Highlight the desired restore point
4) Scan for affected programs(lower right)make a note of affected programs
5) CLOSE | NEXT | FINISH


WIN = key with the wavy Microsoft flag on top.

Hi lancs , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
The support website officially publish any certified BIOS intended for your machine. 
Best to use your serial number to get ones specific for your machine. 
 
If you do not have any issue , it would be best to keep the current ones and simply load its default if needed. 
Similar discussion here and here that may help you.

Links In emails or Open Browser windows aren't reacting or opening. They appear shaded out and I have no idea how to get them working again..I have to paste each one into a new window if i select "open in new window" or "open in new tab" options, a new tab sometimes (not always) opens and says connecting but it doesnt complete loading. I don't use Outlook at all, and I've restored all firewall settings and tried messing around with Popup Blocking settings but that doesn't seem to have made a difference. I have a toshiba satellite laptop with windows 7 running and use Trend Micro, my net connection is Dial up. Explorer is also loading windows alot slower.
Any Ideas on how to fix these problems?

Windows XP Home Edition running outlook express. I would like to change the font and size of the text in my outlook express messages, but the options under view are shadowed. I have administrative rights, but these options are not available. Can someone help?
 

A:View options Shadowed in Outlook Express

Welcome to TSG!

There are no Font options on the View Menu. If you are referring to the Text Size and Encoding options, you have to first have a folder or message selected.

To change the font, size and color in a message you are sending, you have to make sure you don't have it set to Plain Text
In the New Message editor, click on Format, and make sure Rich Text (HTML) is selected.
Then the Format bar will appear where you can select Font, size, style, and color, or you can use the Format Menu.

You set the Default fonts using Tools | Options, then the Read tab and the Compose tab.

Problem occurred overnight. Was working yesterday! This Dell Dimension
3000 has a pre-bios boot failure (evidently?). None of the diagnostic lights
are lit, and the front power light is solid amber. I can hear it power up and the fan runs.

I have disconnected everything and reconnected, reseated the memory modules etc. Tried a second power cable and video cable. Researching led me to believe there is something amiss on the motherboard.

Any troubleshooting advice would be appreciated.

Hello my friends ! A time ago i bouhgt two Lenovo ideapad 100 14 IBY (FreeDos Version) and install Windows 10 on it with UEFI and GPT Partition Table. All works fine until i want to play around with Linux and install UBUNTU Mate in UEFI on one of them. The install was easy but the Performance on Ubuntu with Bay Trail and the don't working Bluetooth was a reason to switch back to Windows 10. After that the Problem beginns. The Bios don't let me save changes anymore (only time and date !). There was no UEFI ESP and GPT Support since i install UBUNTU and the Bios Menu looks like that:Bios Entries on a blank DiskBootingThe Disk is Blank there is no ubuntu on there (Don't know waht the EFI Entries are no Hardware is connected). And when I boot also go to Network Boot there.(No Matter a USB Stick is connected). So what i did: # I Dismantle it and disconnect Battery and Cell and wait half an hour. # Nothing changes !# I change the HDD. # Nothing changes !# Reflash the BIOS by edit the plattform.ini - CheckByBios=1 - Error Cannot mount EFI Partition. # Nothing changes !# Install Windows 10 - Make mbr2gpt.exe and bcdedit and bootrec. # Nothing changes ! I can install and run Windows 10 in MBR and BIOS Mode on it. But no USB Stick was displayed in Boot Menu. So now Iam on my Limit and the Question is there a way to put UEFI and GPT back on it or does the BIOS locked in this State. For me UEFI is MALEWARE so why can a simple UBUNTU damaged my BIOS and ...
