I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

This is a question for information about why my networking problem finally was resolved.
I have four PC?s on my network; one Windows 7 and three Windows XP. The Windows 7 PC always sees all three of the other computers. However the Windows XP computers sometimes don?t see the other XP computers when I press ?My Network Places.? Quite by accident I discovered that if I press ?View Workgroup Computers? then ALL the other PC?s in the network DO show up. Furthermore, if I click through "View Workgroup Computers" and access/edit a file on one of the other computers, then this computer will ALSO show up in ?My Network Places.? This behavior seems to be quite consistent and works every time I have tried it. Apparently, this is a workaround to the long vexing problem of why my networked PC?s sometimes don?t show up under ?My Network Places.?

My question: why does ?View Workgroup Computers? apparently always show all the networked PC?s, when ?My Network Places? does so only intermittently or sometimes not at all?

Thanks for any response.

Hi there,

I have a problem running Patran 2007 in Windows 7, the program seems to run fine, and I am able to open data bases and work on them. The problem comes in when I want to either save the database, open a new database or just open a current database. For each of these functions a new smaller window pops up so I can navigate to the correct file or path to click on it or whatever.

Initially the window opens as I would expect, but as soon as I move the mouse or try to use the keyboard to navigate, the window goes blank and I can do nothing with it. Strangely, using the compatibility setting to open the program in a 640x480 display, they do seem to work fine, but because of the small resolution, I cannot actually see the part of the window where the files are - so that also doesn't help me.

It seems as though there is something between Patran and Windows that one of them don't like, but it baffles me that everything else works fine. If any one else has had the same problem, maybe with a different program even, let me know what you did to resolve it. Otherwise any advise would be useful.

Thanks
Alan

A:"Flie open" window doesn't display correctly

Welcome!

First, how long has this been going on? Did it start right from the time you installed it?

You may try uninstalling and then reinstalling Patran. If that does not help, try running it in compatibility mode for Vista or XP.

I plugged my laptop into an integra 30.4 receiver via HDMI port (multiple ports) and with the receiver on the right device port and connected to a tv or a projector and I get no audio out of the HDMI port only Video. Video works great!

The laptop is an alienware laptop on Windows 10 (upgraded from windows 7 purchased November of 2011). The HDMI would transfer audio and video in windows 7 intermittently for a year or two. However, I had to turn the tv, receiver, and computer on in a specific order and eventually, approximately 1 hour of doing this each time I wanted audio I'd get the audio over the HDMI cable until I shut down....

I've been on windows 10 now for a while and never have gotten the HDMI audio to work. I kinda gave up but would like to use my laptop now to play movies to my new epson 4k projector and am unable to get audio to work at all. Video is phenomenal.

The HDMI port shows up in the device manager under sound devices. However, constantly shows "Cable not plugged in" whether the cable is or is not plugged in.

It's an older Geforce card - wanna say it's a Geforce 555. Also has an intel graphics adapter as well. I've done all the nvidia updates, windows updates, I've gone so far as removing the sound adapters and rebooting, removing the graphics adapters and letting them reinstall. The HDMI audio port always comes back with "Cable Not plugged in." It's staring me in the face constantly.

Okay guys, I'm at my wits end.

In the device manager, there are two entries for the video card, one being called secondary. The primary one has a code 12.

When I load up Windows, and the ATI control panel goes to load, it gives me an error saying that the driver is either not installed or not installed correctly and then proceeds to close.

I have disabled the onboard video in safe mode, uninstalled the onboard video drivers, as well as uninstalled and reinstalled the ATI drivers about a million different times in a million different ways.

According to e-machines tech support, you can't disable onboard video in the BIOS.

ATI tech support told me that I needed to upgrade my BIOS (and that this problem was common on e-machines) but then e-machines proceeded to tell me that there was not a BIOS update available for my machine.

So one big resounding WTF from me.

As for my specs, I am not entirely sure how to give them to you, but here is a link to my particular model on e-machines website.

I recently upped the RAM to 768MB.

At this point I am just wondering if I ought to save up my money for a better machine.

A:I cannot open "my computer" "control panel" "recycle bin", etc...

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

For some reason, my "Recycle Bin" will not display the files within it with the correct filters while in the "Details" view.

For example, I have the "View" set to "Details", and the two columns I have showing are "Name" and "Type", with "Name" selected as the preferred sort order.

With those settings in place, the "Recycle Bin" is not displaying the files in the correct order.I am not sure of the order that it is displaying them, as I can't pick-up on any pattern.

For example, it is displaying:

"File0002.jpg"
"File0003.jpg"
"File0004.jpg"
"File0001.mp3"
"File0001.jpg"

When I adjust it again so it displays them in the correct order, the next time I open the "Recycle Bin", the order has returned to the incorrect display.

Any ideas on how to correct this?

The first simple thing you can do is take out your graphics card and check for any signs of damage,
I have blown a 6200 and a 8400 before trying to play games not compatible with them. Signs to look for a black marks and such, also check to see if the fan spins when the computer starts up. Try moving your video cable to the onboard graphics, system should work and if it does you need a new graphics card, dont feel bad, your not a gamer till you blow a nividia card

HP Touchscreen IQ 506 with Win 7 (SP1), recently recovered (since restore points had been lost).
NVIDIA 9300M GS Display Driver version 9.18.13.1106.
Recovery was to Vista, and used upgrade disc to Win7.
Since recovery, I have been experiencing sporadic black-outs, with the message "Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered." This has been the case before, as well as after, upgrading to the present driver version.
Display has always returned, but still a nuisance to have activity interrupted.
Never experienced this prior to recovery, and I have not installed any software which was not installed prior to recovery.
The posts on other forums for this problem, for the most part, refer to use during playing action games. The only games I play are card games, and it isn't necessarily during a game when this occurs. I can be reading email or viewing a site on Firefox.
Any additional info needed?

I installed 7 last night and found out it would not detect my nvidia 6600GT card, even though it is fully supported by windows 7. Found a lot of people had the same problem but no one really had a solution.

This problem occurs when Windows 7 boots up in VgaSave mode (1200px wide max resolution). And trying to install the nvidia driver it tells you "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit"

After tons of trial and error, downloading previous drivers, downloading edited inf files from NVIDIA & Laptop News | Latest NVIDIA drivers and related news | laptopvideo2go.com, I finally decided to flash my bios using a bootable USB stick.

It worked, and windows update was able to download the correct driver, and I was later allowed to install the latest nvidia drivers.

So if all else fails, go to your computer or motherboard manufacturer and download the latest BIOS update.

Hope that helps..

Hello all,

I've spent a good few days trying everything the internet has thrown up to fix my mistake but nothing has worked. I shall list my attempts to fix subsequently.

My problem is this: six days ago, I was using my laptop on its battery and I noticed that the battery icon in the notification bar still showed the mains plug and claimed it was at 100% charge, which it wouldn't be after at least 45 minutes of use.

Plugging my laptop back into the mains, restarting and running from the mains, then unplugging it did not change this icon at all. I searched for a way to fix this problem, and came across deleting and reinstalling the driver from Device Manager > Batteries and deleting "Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery" then Action > Scan for hardware changes. Unfortunately, I closed the Device Manager window by mistake before I scanned for changes, so when I reopened it the hardware change was not registered, so there was no ability to reinstall the recently deleted driver.


I have tried to: find the driver itself on the Acer driver webpage: it is not there
restarting laptop, removing battery and mains connections, de-charging capacitors, then rebooting to "register" the battery
downloading various .exe files that claim to reinstall the missing driver (these have installed "Microsoft AC Adapter" drivers instead)

I am new here. At first a happy new year to everybody.

Yesterday I bought the boxed version of True Image 7.0 and installed it. During the installing I also made boot disks as well as as a boot cd, both in the "complete" version. After that I tried to boot from the disks and also from the cd (of course changed the bios to boot from cdrom). Both didn't work ! My computer booted and I did get the start screen from Acronis but after that it said: "Loading Acronis, please wait" , with the disks as well as with the cd. After that nothing happened anymore, even after 10 minutes.
I made a new boot cd but this time a "safe" version and that DID work. I assume however that, because there are no usb drivers etc. included, you can't use it with an external usb drive or so.
Does anyone here have the same experience or a clue to solve it ? I already emailed Acronis, but didn't get a reply yet (probably because it's New Year ?)
Thanks in advance.

My Win 7x64 desktop was off for several days, with the console unplugged. Upon first start up today, I was prompted to update the AMD driver to Catalyist 12.10, which I did. It seemed to have an effect on another app that I wanted to reverse, so I ran System Restore to right before the computer was last shut down. It returned an error message, and again after a normal reboot: It read that System Restore didn't complete running. "The data is invalid (0x8007000D)." Running System Restore to later time points got the same result.

Later, I tried a cold boot into System Repair, F8 (nothing found). The System Restore error message now was as follows:

"rstrui.exe - Application error
The instruction at 0xfb30584d referenced memory at
0x00000008. The memory could not be read."

I did a google search on rstrui.exe error, but didn't find a lot and so far none of it has worked. The last system image backup before today was two weeks ago, so that's not a welcome option. Any ideas what the problem might be and how to get Sys Restore going again? Thanks,

A:System Restore doesn't work: "rstrui.exe - application error"

By chance, do you have Agnitum Outpost firewall on your machine? Other forum threads indicate this could cause problems for system restore. The recommended solution was to disable a function called Self Protection.

You could also see if there are any damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from and elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times and reboot your computer after each scan.

I've got a weird problem here to report. I'm on a Lenovo N200 laptop running Windows 7 x64. Around half the time, the computer will boot up with the trackpad not responding. During times when this happens, I can look into the device manager and see a "code 10" ("device cannot start") for the trackpad. Restarting the computer fixes the problem.

I've had the problem once or twice over the last few years, but just a few weeks ago, it started happening very regularly (+/- 50% of all startup attempts). I can't recall making any notable changes to the system lately that could cause something like this. When the problem first started, it also affected the display adapter (Windows would start with an extremely low resolution and the graphic card would show a similar fault in the device manager, in addition to the trackpad problem described here), but this has since stopped.

I have tried updating the driver for the trackpad to a newer version, but the problem persists.

Hardware faults were considered, but I was able to successfully boot the computer from a WinPE CD five times in a row with no issues, so it would seem like this is less likely to be a hardware bug.

Any ideas as to where to go from here? I don't want to have to reinstall an otherwise clean and functional operating system for something this trivial.

Hi all,

I noticed a really annoying issue on my machine.

When installing various software, when it asks me if I want to customise location, when I click on the "browse" button, it either doesn't do anything or in some cases it will open "Browser For Folder" window, but it will only show my Desktop>Usename folder, nothing else.

Software like K-Lite Codec pack will work fine as in I can change the installation location, but other software wont work :/

I do have mapped network drives if it makes any difference.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Installed Publisher 2003 on new windows 7 computer and noticed that the "fill" command would only fill in white. Went to the "Paint" program that came installed on the computer and the same thing was true. Should I upgrade to Publisher 2007? If "Paint" doesn't work, why would an upgrade to Publisher 2007 work?

Hello Vrnuta, welcome to the Seven Forums.

By default the fill color (color 2) in both Paint and Publisher is white. Are you sure you remembered to change it to color you want to use?

Just recently I had re-formatted, this being one of the problems. It was fixed, and halleluja! I could restart! w00tzor!

I started installing my software and games, and continued restarting.

The last things I installed:

Soundblaster Live! Value Drivers
Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer Drivers

While installing both of them (From CD, I have two drives), I went into MSconfig and dis-abled the AudioHQ that auto starts, and when both of them finished installing (Well SBLive drivers finished a little early) I hit restart, as prompted by my msconfig.

I was greeted by "Primary Hard Disk 0 not found"

"Strike F1 to retry, F2 to enter setup utility"

I hit retry 3 times, and it didn't work. I went into my BIOS Setup, and it said my Primary Hard Disk is an "unknown" device. When I bootup and go into the menu again, It says its my 60 GB drive, as its supposed to.

What happened?

A little info that may help:

Primary HD with OS and programs installed:

Drive C: 60 GB Drive, 7200 RPM, manufactured by Western Digital

Drive D: 20 GB Drive, I THINK its 7200 RPM, manufactured by Maxtor

Both are formatted as NTFS. My computer was booting just fine before I did the previous actions, is there anything I Can do?

[Edit] I checked the other post with a guy having the same problem, and i just remembered:

The 60 GB WD drive is set as "Master"

And 20 GB Maxtor drive is set as "Slave/Cable select" (One or the other)

A:Help! "Restart" Doesn't work (Hard to explain), WinXP

MSCONFIG would not cause your HD to not be recognised by the BIOS. If your Bios is not seeing the HD there may be a loose wire. Bad cable of the HD may be going bad. Someone made a good point about spinup time in another thread. Myabe the BIOS is not giving the drive ample time to get to speed. If its a newer drive it may be having a problem with the motor. Try downloading Maxtor's HD check utility.

Hi,

I had an issue with the general user folder name, which was shown as "Alex_000".
Although this was a cosmetic issue only, I wanted to change this to "Alex".
I successfully managed this by changing about 50 entries in the registry (via regedit).

So fine so good.



Now I found out that there are still some leftovers with "Alex_000" in the Windows system, although I have tried to find every bit and peace, where possible:


When I try to open "Add or Remove Programs" in the Metro surface, I get an error message:


Windows cannot find

'C:\Users\alex_000...\Classic_{a lot of weird numbers and chars}.settingscontent-ms'.
Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.



From another forum topic, i also tried this command via Metro and RUN to see, if the Remove service has a general problem:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\rundll32.exe C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL "C:\Windows\System32\appwiz.cpl",Add or Remove Programs
--> With this, i can open the Remove service without a problem.


Somewhere in the system, there must still be the Alex_000 info hidden.


How can i find this? (Tried the registry, tried a simple search on C: disc, but without success)

How can I solve this?


Thanks a lot!

Alex

The obvious answer is to change it all back to Alex_000. Renaming a system folder doesn't usually go well.

Whenever I try to open a file with a program such as Winamp, the programs now "arranges the icons" in some funky random arrangement instead of arranging them by name (or by type, or modified) or whichever order I had preset. When I tell it to "arrange icons by" name or whatever other options, it arranges them....until I try to open something else. Then it's back to the funky random arrangement.

This only happens when trying to access a file from a different program. When I access the folder through Windows, it remembers the arrangement perfectly. Any clue as to what's going on here?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have a Dell Latitude D830 Laptop

I recently replaced my hard drive (sATA) with a fresh one, loaded with Windows Vista. Before even using anything in Vista, I immediately upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, without a hitch.

However, I seem to have lost the ability to select all using CTRL+a; it simply does nothing. Everything else works (ctrl+s, ctrl+x, ctrl+v, ctrl+c).

I cannot remember if it worked for the brief time I had Vista installed before upgrading to 7; it was a relatively short amount of time (like 20-30 minutes), so I don't know if I used CTRL+A then or not.

Any reasons why it won't work anymore, or how I can fix it?

HOWEVER,when i update video graphics back to my "Intel 82865G Graphics Controller" & play any video, the video quality is excellent & direct 3d & hardware acceleration starts working contrary to "standard VGA graphics card" but gives major computer operation problems. For e.g., As soon as i resize my VLC interface or run any other media players (like powerdvd or windows media players etc), the computer either gets stuck/hung or it shows a blue screen message saying "disable bios memory such as caching or shadowing" OR "page_fault_in_nonpaged_area" & lots of other explorer based problems.i tried changing various 3d settings in opengl as well, but in vain.

Hello
I have an HP pavillion desktop (s5360f) with Atheros 802.11 a/b/g/n Dualband Wireless Module and D-Link router DIR-615. My numerous Laptops and iPhons / iPads work fine, but this desktop which is further away from the router (in another room, about 20 meters) only shows 1-2 bars of wifi. First I bought a big additional D-Link antenna (7Ghz) but it didn't really help - sometimes connction shows 3 bars. I was told this antenna should help a lot. Then I checked with my router settings and saw that the HP uses "g" connection when everything else uses "n". I even set it to only use "n" but still it shows the HP using "g". I updated the driver (Atheros 9.2.0.113 for AR5B91), but it didn't help. I have "n" enabled in Atheros in Device manager.
Now I'm lost and can't think of anything else that can be a problem and / or how to fix it... I don't have any thick walls between the router and the HP, my iPhone seems to work in this room just fine...
Please help!
THANK YOU!

I recently got a new laptop and I've been having a lot of trouble with the sound. It is the laptop seen here:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218090329155

Sometime the audio works, but then if I pause a song and attempt to resume it a few minutes later, errors occur and the audio seems to be disabled.



"Windows Audio has stopped working" flashes quickly, followed by:

"Host Process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed
A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available."


Then, if I right click on the small volume icon in the bottom right by the time, go to "Playback Devices" I get the following message:

"This computer cannot play audio because the Windows Audio Service is not enabled.

Would you like to enable the Windows Audio Service?"

I click yes and the audio works again, but even after this it still acts funny.


Things of note:Sometimes the Volume Up/Down/Off buttons on my keyboard work, and sometimes they do not.
After this problem occurs and I restart it by going to Playback Devices, the audio cannot be turned up/down in Windows Media Player. I must manually adjust my (external) speakers.

Hello all, am running Win 8.1 Pro x64. Today I noticed that the "Eject" option from the right-click menu doesn't work for either of my 2 CD-Rom drives, nor for a "virtual" drive - I get the same error message on all 3: "An error occured while ejecting [drive]".

Device Manager shows no errors, and I've tried uninstalling the drives and rebooting, but error persists. Can anyone help?

Also, to be clear, it is NOT a physical problem with the drives, as I can open them without a problem through the buttons on the front.

Finally, if for some reason I can't fix this issue, does anyone know of a way to at least just DELETE the "Eject" from the context menu?

A:"Eject" Option Doesn't Work for ANY of My CD-ROM Drives??

Just to try and determine if your context menu is corrupted, you could try and create a shotcut to open/close your CD tray. With that said, there are several freeware programs available to create these shortcuts so I would just google for:

how to create a shortcut to eject cd

Then pick one and try it out. I hve done this before; however, I can't remember which one I used but I think it was NirSoft.

Good luck.
