Preferred Solution: Notebook not updating

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.)

Should I update the 9300M GS in my notebook? Nvidia does state to use OEM drivers first, but the newest drivers available are from Nvidia's website. Seeing as I don't play too many games, should I update the card along with DirectX or leave it?

A:Updating notebook drivers

If you don't play games just leave it, especially if notebook is working OK. That's my opinion.
Recently, I updated the ATI driver in my second lappy just to find out it doesn't work like it should and I have to roll everything back to the previous one.

Hello everyone,
Recently, I updated my HP laptop from windows 8 to windows 8.1. I got critical message from HP Support Assistant asking to update the drivers. I went to HP website, and see all the drivers specified for my laptop. I didnt get which one I have to install. I dont want to install unnecessary things that could harm the functionality of my laptop. Anyway, I opened the device manager in my laptop and checked the update for every driver. But, this message still appears to me. Any tips that can help me? Do you know the specified drivers I have to install? Or, Do you know a specific source I can use to know the needed drivers?

A:Updating from Win8 to Win 8.1. It needs updating drivers!

There's nothing "unnecessary" about the drivers, every piece of HW needs one.

A problem has recently developed with my Envy notebook.   About 2 weeks ago my entire wireless network began slowing down when on it.   Noticeable on all devices.    When my provider came out, checked and tweaked some issues it appeared to be ok.   I went on with my daughers HP laptop and was drawing 20-24 mbps all over the house. When I reconnected mine to the system I was only pulling 6, 3, 5, up and down.   It doesn't start right away but after a few minutes.   So I put my duaghers right next ot mine and low and behold, when I ran her's it pulled 3 - 6 also.   So I turned my wi-fi off and hers' popped right back up.   I have also tried this with an old XP mini, my i-pads etc.   As soon as mine gets on the network the speed crashes.    This also happens with no one else home and no other devies conncted. I have downloaded the latest up to date Intel driver for this network adapter and it hasn't changed anything. Any ideas?

Bill_Ving Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wireless networking poor performance and wanted to help. My immediate guess is that you might have mixed-mode networking going on.  This happens when you have two different PCs networking in two different modes -- one using "G", the other using "N".  The wireless router (or access point) can optimize performance for either mode, but not for both.  So, the "G" mode drags down the performance of the "N" mode PC, but even worse, with the router set for mixed modes, it performs more slowly than with either PC connected by itself.Here are some other troubleshooting steps you can try: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8) | HP® Customer SupportGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================

I made a Google notebook to keep the minutes of a meeting my business partners and I held last weekend. I made them all collaborators on the notebook so they could all make any changes or annotations they felt necessary. However, when they go to access this notebook they are prompted for a password.

There is nowhere (at least that I can find) to even choose to password protect the notebook let alone change the password. I'm pretty confused as to what password the notebook could be. The only thing I can think of is that it's asking for the password to my gmail account, which I don't really want to be handing out. Any ideas on this one gang?

My wife has a two-year-old Samsung notebook. Recently when she unplugged it the machine cut off, even though the battery said 79% charged (it wouldn't charge any further). I figured that the battery was bad so I bought another one from Amazon.

This one charges to 100% percent and does exactly the same thing. I'm perplexed but think there's something going on with the motherboard that won't let it use battery juice, even if Windows 8.1 says it's 100% charged.

I've tried the hold the power button down for 1 min with the battery out trick to no avail.

Any ideas? I'm stumped and think I might need to get her another notebook.

Thanks, Robert

My own notebook (Asus EEE PC S101), running Windows XP service pack 3) was twice redirected to an unknown website when I wanted to visit the Guardian newspaper website. I was using IE version 8. Then the notebook froze. When this happened, I had to switch it off without using Cleanup, which I have used safely for a long time. When I had switched it on again, I used Firefox to go to the Techsupport Forum. I followed the instructions to download dds.scr and began running it. Then the notebook froze again. It still tells me "Two logs shall be created on your desktop" Now the cursor does not move any more either. I write this from another notebook, but I cannot create a logfile,m as everything is frozen on my own notebook. Help, please,

New here and so I hope that I am posting in the correct place.
My new notebook an M50-MX5 was in the warranty depot as we thought it had a dvd burning problem, however that was not the case; it was the media.

Anyway before it was sent into the toshiba warranty depot the level 2 tech phone support said to get the computer to be like it was when I unboxed it 2 days earlier, this was last month.
And so to my frustration all of my programs were removed, however before doing this the software techie at the office Ghosted it to my Western Digital Storage Unit and then sent it off to the Warranty Depot.

While it was in the shop I used my 3 yr old toshiba satellite 2410 which I am now typing on at this moment.
I was finally able to get the software tech from the office to reGhost my new toshiba M50 on this past Saturday and left it with him for a couple of hrs and then returned to pick it up as there was not much in the way of programs on it and so it wouldn't take long to Ghost the Images back.

Well, in my Western Digital Storage unit are Ghosts of this 3 year old satellite that I am presently using.
After the techie got my Restore Disk installed and tried to reGhost the image onto the New M50, it crashed.

He was using the wrong Ghost, he was using the one that was from this unit???
I was not happy, especially after he claimed that he now had it Ghosted with the proper Image and I tried it out and it was very sloooooow to Boot. He said it was my Norton 2006.

A:new notebook Ghosted with old notebook ghost and now problems??

Something you might want to try (it's a pita) is a repair of windows - this may fix some of the slowness issues you're seeing. The install program he's talking about is probably the U3 component of many larger USB pen drives. I think it's on most of Sandisk's newer large drives. A repair of windows might also take care of this. I seriously doubt that putting the wrong image on the machine and then putting another image on could do any damage to the machine itself - the folks here at my job do it all the time.

You?ll need to perform a clean install to get to the 64-bit version of Windows 10 from the 32-bit one. There?s no upgrade path.

you can switch directly to a 64 bit version of Windows 10 using your product key.

I have not used my Win 10 Laptopn since August 19, 2016 and coincidentally have a Paragon Backup of the computer on that date. Today, I fired it up and of course wound up with a update. After the update cycle Winver shows version 15111 O
S build 10586.494. Does that sound right? And, does that include the "Aniversary Edition?"

From what I read around the web, the Anniversary Edition is maybe not the most desirable. I don't mind at all restoring the computer to the 8/19 date and this time deferring updates.

I would like to hear some thoughts on this.

Thank you very much.

I will try to make this as clear as possible. I tried to download the available updates for my win 7 Premium 64bit. It just sat on "downloading" showing 0% after about 3 hours. When I went to shut down the computer, there was a symbol showing that it would install updates and then shutdown. I have never had that symbol before. When I next turned on the computer I got the configuring windows screen and then it opened normally. One update had been successfully installed. Being the fool that I am, I tried again to install the updates that are available. Same story - one more update installed. This has been going on for three days now.
One update failed to install KB3172054 showed Code 80070013. It appears that it failed twice. This morning I went through the same deal with configuring windows and I am now totally unsure how to proceed. Obviously, updates are downloading - I just am not seeing it on the downloading screen. Would it be best for me to download the update repair tool from MS, or is there something else I should try to solve this problem with updates?
I would really appreciate any advice you can offer.

I'm looking for a way to update the MBR.

I had Windows 10 on my laptop (Acer Aspire 5732 Z) in one partition and I installed Windows XP on another partition and now I can only boot into XP.

I wanted to try the fixmbr command in the XP recovery console (although if my memory serves right that wouldn't help) but it asked for an admin password before I can input anything and I think I don't have one (I tried simply hitting ENTER, "admin", and something else), after 3 failed attempts my only option was to reboot.
After that I installed a Ubuntu on a 3rd partition because I remembered (maybe incorrectly) that installing a Linux distribution has solved this problem before but it only detected the XP partition, so now the boot manager offers Ubuntu and XP, Windows 10 doesn't make an appearance.

A:Updating the MBR

Fixed it by creating a Windows 10 recovery USB drive on another laptop, and typing these lines in the command prompt:

bootrec /RebuildBcd
bootrec /fixMbr
bootrec /fixboot

Although now I can only boot Windows 10, full circle.

I guess I'm of the school, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I've recently upgraded my os from xp pro that I've had on my Home built i5 for years without updating to win 7 ultimate to take advantage of 64 bit memory for video editing.

All my needed programs run fine, why should I even look for update issues? If it's worry of hacking, can't that be addressed via anti virus / anti malware, and firewalls?

I've never had a problem before, and I clone my 2nd immediately after all my video programs are installed. I'm not sure I want to create an issue where all is ok now. Thoughts?

Hello all
On the website eBaumsWorld it will not let me upload my media. It was working fine with uploads on that site through IE6, but then one day it quit. It also does not work in Firefox either. If I click on a link the "browse" button for uploading content pops up quickly, but when I go to the site's upload section it does not show up. I've tried clearing cookies and all of that too.

For further examples of what I mean by this see the pictures below

1. This is what it looks like when I first go to the upload page on eBaumsworld (note: there is no browse button or anything):
2. This is what pops up then dissapears (all of this happens in quick flash, I pressed the Print Screen key quickly when this popped up) when I click on a link to the left, or anywhere:

Is there anyway of fixing this? Its got to be something with my system since its doing it with Firefox and IE.

Please let me know!! Thanks!

Long story short, I had to do a full reset on my laptop (not a refresh) and am anticipating lots of Windows updates when it finishes.

I was hoping to get some guidance on what my best attack strategy, not only for times sake but also in avoiding unnecessary/failed updates from Windows.

Any other tips or *dont forget abouts* are greatly appreciated

Thank you!


I think a lot depends on how far back you are talking about after the reset.

You show nothing in System Specs, and the only thing I see indicates you were running Windows 8 before the reset.

What OS were you running, Windows 8 or 8.1? If you were on 8 you might have problems but if you were running 8.1 it would be good to know if the reset took you back to before the big 8.1 Update 1.

Need more info.
