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.)

Hi guys,i have a problem, i was working on this PC that had a problem. the problem was - when it is turned on,nothing comes on.There is a black screen and blinking cursor (looks like an under-score) [blink]_[blink]that just keeps blinking.Okay this is what I did. I thought the hard disk was damaged, I get a brand new hard disk drive (SATA) and inserted in, and start installing the System Restore Discs and Operating system CD, it is a HP Compaq Desktop dx2200 MT.Every thing goes perfectly well, it starts up fine, XP is installed up and running, all other software are being installed.It all looks great up until I slave the original hard disc in order to copy back the users files back onto the new disc. By the way all copying goes well until the PC suddenly freezes, it doesn't respond to all the keyboard keys or the mouse whatsoever, even pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL in an attempt to open the the Task Manager doesn't work. I turn of the PC by pressing the power button. Remember there are 2 hard discs connected now in the PC, Master and Slave, both are SATA.When I turn it on, the blinking starts again.I try removing the original hard drive (the one I slaved) and still it doesn't boot correctly. I try booting either of them alone, still nothing,I don't think it is a virus problem, because I installed Sophos and had it updated straight after the OS, and if I had connected the slave hard disk it could had detected it.these are things I have tried.1.Removed RAM card and p...

A:PC at startup is only blinking at top left hand corner

It's a Compaq system...did you check the Compaq support site?

From what I see, HP system have proprietary boot mechanisms...which isn't necessarily good for what may be the problem.

My guess is that the MBR is damaged, Black Screen (fixmbr) - http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;314503. Using the fixmbr command from the XP Recovery Console of a MS Genuine XP CD...is the normal cure.

But you have a Compaq and I don't know if that command would be effective with your system.

I have a blue screen problem. Don't know if I should post it here or not but here is my problem.

I have windows 8. I updated to 8.1. So far so good. That is until this morning. I don't know if this is in fact a Windows 8.1 issue or if anyone has ever experienced this before. I turned on the computer. I got the 'Hi' message followed by the next message of windows getting my apps updated. I then had a blank blue screen with a 'start' in the top left hand corner and an arrow in a box pointing to the next page. On the next page I had APPS on the top left hand corner and a blank box. I typed in 'desk top' even tho' that is not an 'app' as such. It took me to a blank black page with a bin in the top left hand corner. It looked liked my machine had been completely wiped. This has never happened before and I tried to Google it but the answers given did not have any correlation to what happened to me...any clues anyone?" Sorry guys, I just reread my post....I forgot to say that my computer has been functioning as normal all day .. What I did was to turn it off and back on again and it worked as normal. The thing is, I don't now trust it and want to know what? why and is it something I need to address.

Hey guys, i honestly can't believe how many people are having this issue, so simply once and for all... there is an easy solution to this problem. You do not need to uninstall/reinstall anything, change bios, get a new graphics card (in most situations, only significantly old graphics cards cannot play this game on minimum settings), or anything.

To fix... go into properties, compatibility and tick the box that says run in 640x480resultion... this minimizes the work the GPU needs to do and tricks the game into thinking it is adequate. In game, you can then alter the resolution to the correct one for your monitor.

Hello there

So after installing and tweaking windows 8, some small annoyances remain. One of them that i encounter every day is as follows:
I have 2 monitors. Primary on the right, secondary on the left.
If i take my cursor up to the top left of the primary monitor, it gets "stuck" and will not move over to the left hand screen (secondary monitor). I believe this is caused by the APP bar which I have disabled as per (http://www.ghacks.net/2012/08/19/disable-windows-8-mouse-over-corner-interfaces/).
However the problem still remains. If i go aproximately 10 pixels down from the upper left hand corner, i can mouse over to the other screen fine. No menu comes up, my cursor just hits a wall. I have made sure both montior tops are in line in the screen resolution
screen.

I tried to shoot a video of it, but of course camstudio does not work in windows 8 (sigh).
steps to reproduce are, drag your mouse to the very top left corner with the intention of moving it to the second monitor.
How can i disable? I have tried the GPO setting for EdgeUI which creates the registry key ( DisableTLcorner) in the link above.

As a bit of background, if one is constantly using VNC to manage other peoples computers, I do not want to steal focus from their mouse by dragging my cursor over the centre of the screen. So i bring my mouse cursor to the very top (title bar area) and try
and move between screens. Obviously this is a windows 8 "feature". Anyone else a... Read more

A:Cannot mouse over upper left hand corner on dual monitors

Um no, I have never in my life found that installing a monitor driver ever fixed anything.

there is nothing in the application log that has anything to do with this problem as its a mouse event. No event is obviously generated when i am moving the mouse around the screen.

you cannot reproduce? I have installed a few more windows 8s and the problem exists on every single one.

here is a video of the event. Finaly got camstudio working properly, just have to do the whole screen. in the video, i try and move the mouse in the upper left and lower left of the screen. the two screens are different wallpapers to make it easier to see.
I have managed to find a service that allows uploads, the video file is here so you can see what im talking about. I hope that makes it clearer.

Hey guys,

I recently had the moneypak FBI virus and cleaned my registry using Ccleaner and also cleared my Temp files manually (which actually got rid of the problem).

Since I cleared this, the top left hand corner of my screen (roughly 2 icon squared in size) does not allow any direct clicking or interaction. The area is not obstructed by any objects and I can still drag things out of that area as long as my cursor is on an area outside of said area.

This affects all programs I use, including my browsers, Steam and Explorer.

I realise I have probably deleted a registry file I shouldn't have but have had no luck finding any other people who have had the same problem, any help you guys can offer would be most appreciated! Cheers!

Hi guys,

The other day I was using my old desktop and using firefox when suddenly firefox froze up while browsing and I was unable to ctrl+alt+del or click start or anything for that matter in order to close it down. I then turned off my computer manually by pressing the power button as I sometimes do when my computer freezes and turned it back on. Unfortunately, when I turned it back on the computer is stuck on the black screen with the blinking underscore in the top left hand corner.

I unfortunately am not good with computers and would like to avoid reformatting my computer, as this old desktop contains the largest amount of my media such as music and movies that I had been meaning to put onto an external hard drive. Furthermore, I do not have an XP installation disc and am unable to locate the system recovery discs that came with the PC (like I said, it's old, circa 2006, and they are most likely lost somewhere in the house or thrown out by now). Thank you for all the help and support in advance.

A:Windows XP black screen with blinking underscore in top left hand corner

if you haven't tried, as you switch on press the F8 key up and down repeatedly, if this works you will be at the safe mode menu - try last known good config. If still no go, try booting to BIOS - if this doesn't work I would say hard drive issue. Download the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic program, this has to be burned to a disk. Then put the disk in and let it boot the pc and run the test.

The x240 crashed the same way when I was using the x240 on my lap, while resting my left elbow to the left of the trackpad, supporting my chin reading the a document on the screen. I think the crash happens when there's pressure to the area to the left of the trackpad.

Hi

I have recently started using windows 8.1 at work.

However, they are not present on my work desktop computer. The only way I can find to close them is by using alt-F4, which is OK, but not what I want to use.

I've been reading a bunch of posts on this issue. I'm assuming that each computer is different. Here is what I am currently experiencing:

1) Every time I open up my internet browser using Firefox or Chrome a pop up ad related to the website appears on the bottom right hand corner of the browser. It sometimes shaped as an iPhone or a square box.

2) I also experience with redirects to other websites when I click a link on a website

when using my computer the mouse will randomly jump to the right hand corner of the display. It will also open up windows unexpectedly like the control panel or notification panel. I notices when this is happening there are circles like little bubbles that show up on the right hand side of the display. This is very frustrating and has been happening for a long time. I have seen other people having this same problem but I really did not see a resolution. Please help me with this problem. If I need to bring the laptop in and I not have a problem with that. I submitted this request on 4/19/17, and I received the initial email that said they would contact me in another email which I never received. Looking at the status on your website is says this request has been "Completed - Awaiting closure". Since then I have sent other request and I still have gotten nothing.

A:mouse will randomly jump to the right hand corner

You don't say what model it is.  If it is a touchscreen, I would assume the digitizer (screen) is failing.

Hi all,

While using web browsers (Firefox and Chrome) there is a pop up in the right hand corner of many web pages. Also, while clicking on links in legit pages (i.e. nytimes.com) get redirected to different sits with brief screen that says document has moved and being redirected. I suspect this is malware but am unsure how to approach it. Have run the virus scanner AVG and have tried rkill and mbam in safemode, but the problem persists.

I have noticed a thread (last updated 30 May) that seems to handle the same problem, but unsure if I should be walked through steps or just try them myself. Please advise on how to proceed.

Thank you.

This week I noticed a red x on the bottom right hand corner of screen. When putting the mouse over it, a box came up that said "Your Computer has been infected with spyware" (looked like something official from microsoft, but I know it is a bad link). I already had Superantispyware downloaded on my computer, so I updated it, rebooted, and ran the program. Once it identified the infected files, I deleted them, rebooted. Still having issues though. Thanks for any help!!!

Okay, I've tried everything. I've tried chkdsk. I've tried reinstalling. I've done everything I could think to do. I think my hard drive may be bad. But, I'm not sure. I was getting BSODs that said Stop 000000x08 and the affected program was iaStor.sys Although I was unable to delete it. I can't even start in safe mode. Whenever I try to start at all it takes me to a BSOD and immediately shuts off. I can't even read what it says. I've been driving myself crazy over this. Plus, I've reinstalled 2 os because that's what I've read to do. I just don't know what to do. I think it may be my hard drive but have no idea how to check. Thanks for any help. My system is a Dell Inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista Basic Home.

In order to test the hard drive you can run one of the diagnostic programs below. The files, in ISO format, will need to be burned to a CD using a program that can burn CD image files.

Hitachi Drive Fitness Test
Downloads
Western Digital
WD Support / Downloads / Select Product
(choose your product and select Data Lifeguard Diagnostic)
Seagate
| Seagate

Could also be a drive controller/motherboard issue but run the diagnostics first.

Pretty much as title except it works in 32 bit but not in 64 bit windows 8.1 update fresh install. Have checked the apps notification switches in PC settings and they are all on. The one I miss is the email notification telling me I have mail which appears to be enabled but test messages from gmail dont trigger notifcations in right hand top side of desktop.

One notification that does work is when I insert a USB it asks what to do with removable devices but thats the only notification I get. Any fixes?

A:Notifications not showing from Apps in right hand corner

Found the answer. Particularly for Metro Mail, notifications in the accounts section of mail was set to notify from favorites! I have no favorites yet so I have set it to all mail and now desktop notifications for mail show. I dont remember that setting in the 32 bit flavour but that was upgraded from windows 8. The 64 bit was a fresh install!

Yesterday I started to notice an advertisement appearing on the lower-right hand corner of my browser (IE), at first I thought it was just the site I was on, but today I noticed it appearing on sites that I often frequent without issues.

http://i49.tinypic.com/24yxxef.png

I took a print screen to explain it. The advertisements change so its not always that one in particular soemtimes its cursor mania, vertizon, watch this etc. But it's always in that same square box on the same side and if i x it out it dissappears but comes back on certain sites.

I use Windows Vista, on HP Pavillion DV4 laptop. I ran a virus scan and foudn no problems, checked IEs addons to see if anything got in there, also checked my programs to see if I didnt recognize something new but everything is as always which leads me to believe it may be a virus of some sort.

Hi all,
I suddenly find that pictures on sites are not loading, and all I get is a white background with a small square with a red cross in the top corner. Do I need to re download anything to enable me to see them again??

Thankyou in anticipation of your help!

Hi

I've seen this problem posted a few times before but it seems to be that every case is slightly different so any help would be greatly appreciated. I keep getting redirected to sites I have no intention of going to, alongside this, I am getting alot of ads pop up in the bottom right hand side of my browser. Both problems as i'm sure alot of people know are extremely annoying.

So far i've run both MalwareBytes and Spybot, but neither seem to solve the problem. My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium Version 6.1 (Build) 7600) and i'm using Firefox 13.0.1.
Thankyou
