Q: i tnink this puter needs some brain surgery

Hi I think there,s a problem in here. I have BB (Comcast) running XP sp2 IE sp2
i'd sure be grateful if someone would please take a look ay my HJT? My puter is running so slow at times and doing other strange mysteries. I thought at one point I may be have a trojan, but NIS , S&D, Spyware Dr and Spywre Blaster & Ad Aware don't pick anything up. Thank you all. Bad

Preferred Solution: i tnink this puter needs some brain surgery

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.)

Hi all,
Haven't made a post in a long time and I'm surprised my account is still active.

Here's the verdict; my laptop came shipped with an OEM Windows Vista installation. I wanted to dual-boot it with Windows XP but needed XP on the C: partition (plus the issue with older version of windows should be installed before a new version is installed) forced me to re-format, install XP SP3, install all the drivers and bring me to what it is now.

My laptop is fully functioning with Windows XP. I have a Linux Ubuntu 8.04 CD, Windows Vista OEM dvd and windows xp sp3 cd at hand. I want to dual boot my system with either windows vista, linux, or both.

Please answer these two questions:

1.) If I create a new partition and install Vista on the new partition, is it possible to upgrade the Vista installation to Windows 7 WITHOUT DOING ANY HARM AT ALL TO THE XP PARTITION OR IT'S BOOT LOADER? So I will then have a dual boot system with Windows XP and 7 (and both OS's fully working)?

2.) If I install Linux in a new partition alongside my XP partition will it be possible to install vista on a third partition AFTER I have installed Linux? So the order in which the operating systems have been installed would be:
- 1. Windows XP installed first
- 2. Linux Ubuntu installed second
- 3. Windows Vista installed third

Any help will be very much appreciated (as long as it's from someone who knows what they are talking about).

Good morning, all! I would like to transplant a Samsung EVO 850 SSD into my Ideapad Z580 notebook from another machine of mine. The SSD has a different OS on it (Linux Mint) than what is on the Lenovo's HDD (which is Windows 8.1), and it is also half the size of the HDD (SSD=250GB, HDD=500GB). When I attempted the transplant, the Lenovo would not boot up past the opening screen and gave me an error message that stated something along the lines of (it went by fast, so I couldn't get the exact wording) "PCI (?) media test failure, please check cable." When I put the original HDD back in there, it booted up as though nothing had happened. I'm wondering why this happened, and would putting a new SSD in there to do a clean install of my OS of choice be preferable? Also, when I attempted to use both a USB drive and a disc to install my OS of choice on it, I could not get it to boot from either of those options in BIOS. What am I doing wrong, here?

A:Ideapad Brain Surgery Not Working!

I would expect it to work.  Are you sure the SSD is good?

Hello!!! Okay, a few days ago, I went to the windows update page, and I downloaded and installed all of the newest updates for my computer. Ever since then, my computer has been having like these little brain freezes every 7-10 minutes. I don't know how else to explain it. Like...I'll just be sitting here, just typing an email, or surfing ebay, and my computer will freeze for about 15 seconds. My mouse turns into an hourglass, and I can still move it, but I can't click on anything. And then, after about 15 seconds, it goes back to normal. It's REALLY annoying, but I can't make it go away. I've run scandisk, but nothing comes up. I didn't know if Hijack This would help, but it's worked for me in the past, so I figured it couldn't hurt! Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!!

Hi,i was hoping someone can tell me what i should do next.i had Empire monkey
virus and cleaned it from my computer ,you were recommended by the people over
at McAfee,they said someone can explain what to do next.


A:After the surgery!

From what you say I think you need to post a HijackThis log and then wait for someone qualified (gold shield next to their name) to take you through what needs to be done. Please go no further than the steps below and posting your results for now.You may want to print off this guide just in case.

Using Hijackthis with the self-installer that puts it into Program Files for you:

go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe

Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.

Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.

Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.

Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in Notepad.

Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Once you've done this, hang on for further guidance.

Yesterday I spent two hours opening a Radeon 5850, cleaning and lubing it. It was noisy as hell and now it's quiet, so time well spent.

A:My most complex surgery I ever did

Did you happen to document your progress? Like take pictures of the before, during and after? How about recording fan speeds and temps for the before and after? What did you use to clean it?
Just thinking if someone comes here looking for information on how to do what you just did, by having such information attached, it may very well help that person make a decision on doing it themselves versus bringing it to a "Computer Repair" shop.

Presario V3000 laptop, XP, NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150, drivers up to date, so Windows says.

Modem went out, sent to HP twice. Finally fixed. They had to change main board. Now it looks like a wide screen TV receiving nonHD signal and stretching it to full screen. What should be a square is wider than tall.

Also seems to be glary. White fonts on desktop under icons were opaque until I changed to bold font. Menu font (black) sometimes seems to fade together.

It's probably settings, but I don't know where.

Yes, as the thread title partially suggests, I ran disk cleanup, Eraser, unhide, rkill, Fixexec, Combofix, and finally Malwarebytes in a normal boot, without being asked by a helper. I have other minor computer issues and although neither new issues nor previous issues were caused or exacerbated by Combofix, respectively, I feel you should know about them.
Why? Took the advice of another forum and I think they are erroneous. The professionalism and shear number of threads and guides I have seen here suggests this.

AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn All-Southeastern Conference linebacker K.J. Britt will undergo thumb surgery.
Team spokesperson Kirk Sampson said Thursday that Britt is scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday, a day before the 13th-ranked Tigers host Arkansas. It wasn't immediately clear how long Britt will be out.

Britt had 69 tackles last season, including 10 for a loss and 2.5 sacks. Freshman Wesley Steiner is listed as his backup.
Fellow linebacker Chandler Wooten had already opted out for the season.

I have a virus/spyware called antispybrain that basically tells me at every file is infected and tries to make me purchase antivir software. I'm pretty sure that it's just an exe file that runs on boot but I'm having trouble finding it on my vista machine. I did a google search but all the results look shady also so I haven't followed the directions in them. Anyone else seen this program?

Hello, I'm not sure if I have anything left on my computer as it seems to be working fine. But I was hoping someone could check it out for me.

This morning I had antispy brain on my computer which told me that all my .exe files had viruses and tried to make me go to a site to purchase antispyvir software to remove it. It also made it so I couldn't access the web and I kept getting proxy errors saying that the sites I was going to did not allow proxies.

What I did instead was stop the process from my computer. Then I changed to using no proxys. This allowed me to run my antivirus AVG and malwarebytes, both did not find anything. This also allowed me to get online again.

I rebooted a few times and the antispybrain never came back. I was able to turn on proxys again and could get online. I did notice that some of the forums I normally go to did not log in automatically anymore. I had to type in my username and password. I also had to type in the full username as my saved form fields weren't pulling down either. I'm not sure if this happened because of the proxy setting change or not, but it was just odd.

Everything is working fine, but I never deleted any files so I believe it's still lurking on my computer somewhere.

I ran dds.com but couldn't run gmer because I kept getting a C:windows\system32\config\system: The system cannot find the file specified error on load and then a C:windows\system32\config\system: The process cannot access the file because i... Read more

My laptop is yet again teaching me that technology is not prefect. I have had a Dell Latitude D400 for about three years now and suddenly its beginning to crash. I have done the small things such as remove my pictures and most music from my laptop. Nevertheless there is still less then 5% of space left. I went to the add/remove file most programs there Windows XP needs in order to function. Also, I decreased viritual memory to the max. recommended of 381. I am not sure if there are any scanners I can download to find unused, half deleted parts of downloads from the past. At this point, I am not sure what to do. Can you please help me determine if there is more usable space on my laptop that I am not aware of? This is the error that my system sent to Microsoft (don't know what it means).

Error type : Windows stop error (A message appears on a blue screen with error code information)
Solution available? : No (see Next steps)
What does this error mean? : Windows has encountered an error from which it cannot recover and needs to restart
Cause : Unknown device driver
Computer symptoms : A message appears on a blue screen with error code information (for example: e.g. 0x0000001E, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED)
Additional steps for you to take : Important: Please continue to send error reports so analysts at Microsoft can study and try to correct the problem as quickly as possible

I have been searching Dell, HP & Sony. There is a lot of pretty stuff up there, but I don't have a clue what it all means and don't know where to begin to compare.

I just don't know here to start and I hope you can guide me.

Right now I have a sad sony with winme and it crashes all of the time. Mostly because I run out of memory, resources. I checked with the manufacturer and I can't upgrade - max memory is 256 for this thing. Now matter what, now it is beyond maxed out. I get frozen white screens daily and my dll's are messing up a lot. (I do use SpyBot and AdAware and I seem to be okay there ... dunno about the dll thing)

I (try to/want to) use my machine with many applications open
i.e. MSOffice/Outlook, JASCPaintShop, MSImageComposer, MSFrontPage, AdobePhotoshop/Illustrator, as well as ZoneAlarm, AVG, browser, my ISP hookup, etc.

I don't play games. I just like to work with a lot of pictures, graphics editing and webs.

Can you guys help me to get started?
(is this the right place to post?)

I am so exasperated I am not even sure if I have asked in here before. I know I have done a lot of searching this past few months and am still sitting here with this sad, sad machine, lost by techno terms I do not understand

Can you help?

Hello to all of you smart computer people. My computer was hijacked. I spoke with Microsoft to help me but there assistance was only temporarlly and I found more errors from the hijackers.

Here I go. When trying to re install my Office Cd it goes all the way to where I think it's going to upload and then the big bold square comes up. It's says
Error 2932 An internal error has occurred.
C:\\Windows\installer\{91130409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9}\graph.ico 5)
Contact your computers manufactures product support services PSS for assistance. For information about how to contact PSS See D Files\P Files\MSFiles\Office11\1033\PSS10R.CHM

Another Error I received trying to do something is
memory cann't be written

I can't do a system restore even though the little check mark to not do a system restore is checked. Does that make any sense?

Another Error I get is when trying to update all my software through microsoft is

Files required touse windows updates are no longer registered or installed on your computer.

Then wondering around on my computer I found that my network connections settings have become corrupted...

Does anyone know of one scan that can fix all of my errors on my computer?
Thank you

Here’s a real stumper for someone who wants a challenge. I guess first I will describe my system. I have the following:

>Toshiba satellite 2800 laptop
>256 ram
>3com pcmcia NIC card
>Lynksys 1 port router going to an eight-port hub
My problem is that I cannot get my laptop to get and IP address through the router it simply cannot see my local network or the Internet. All the other computers in my office work through this router. I have tried 3 different cables, I have tried every different port on the hub, I have tried recycling/resetting the modem and router, I have rebooted countless times. The router is able to give out 50 IP/s. All of my computers are on DHCP and they all work fine. All MAC addresses are registered. So I tried plugging in directly to the modem. Alakzam!! It worked. So I guess it just doesn’t like my router. Is there some setting I forgot? Oh I have also forced a static IP, that didn’t work neither. I have tried to release and renew and is says, “All adapters bound to DHCP do not have DHCP addresses. The addresses were automatically configured and cannot be released.” I have tried to renew and that doesn’t work neither.

A:brain teaser

All MAC addresses are registered. Click to expand...

Exactly what do you mean by this? If you're restricting access based on MAC address, I'd suggest you turn that off and see if it helps. The cable modem won't restrict the connection based on the MAC address of the machine, that could be the difference.

Hi There.
I am running Windows XP on my computer with Office 2000. Everything was running fine until my computer was infected with the Sven virus. I removed the virus but was told that it could have made changes to my computer, making it vulnerable to another virus. For that reason I decided to re-install all software.
Since then I cannot send or receive faxes using Outlook 200 with the Symantec Fax Starter Edition. I can set up the fax ok, but when I send it just sits there until it times out. It displays the message "connecting to server" but never seems to connect. Then I get the error message "A Timeout occured while communicating with the server. (Account: 'Symantec Fax Starter Edition',SMTP Server: '', Error Number: 0x800ccc19)"
I've tried everything that I can think of, including re-installing it several times. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this

I have a computer running Windows XP Professional SP2 using Internet Explorer 6.0.2 SP2. When I open Internet Explorer it opens to a windows named e-Brain.jp/ and says e-Brain 1st Hosting on the top of the page. Most of the print on the page is not in English. I was able to download and installed Firefox 2.0 which work fine. I tried to uninstall IE6 but it does not show up on the Add/Remove software list. I tried to install IE7 but got error message during installation. I have scanned for spyware using AVG Antispyware finding nothing, have scanned for viruses finding nothing there either. If I type in a web page (ie msn.com) it takes me right back to the e-Brian page. I searched the internet for this issue but have not found an answer. Anyone run into this before? I can post a hijackthis log if necessary.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have installed Sp2 with no problems apart from having to update a few drivers and stuff, this i expected and was of no hassle at all. Then did the various updates from Uncle Bills site and that went fine.

Then i turn OFF automatic updates you would think that i was trying to stick my wet fingers in the electrical socket the warning is persistently there to tell me i have turned them off. I KNOW that i did.......I did it myself. Is there any way of getting rid of the annoying red shield from the systray?

Getting this message upon boot:

"Runner Error:

I believe I started having this message after a bad bout with spyware after going through a series of pretty invasive steps to eliminate it. Since then I haven't been able to access any built-in "help" indexes, nor can I access "msconfig" or some other things that I usually access via the "run" command. I think I have a pretty widespread problem here but I really don't want to reformat.

Hi all,
I did an accidental system restore on my XP computer (don't ask ) and now Norton antivirus 2003 doesn't run properly.
When I went trouble shooting, the Symantec website recommended uninstalling and reinstalling, because in the startup list I'm missing "Regvfy" and in the services list I'm missing "Symantec event manager, Norton antivirus autoprotect service and Symantec password validation service".
Ergo, I am unable to complete common client updates on live update and unable to set auto protect.
Now my problem is this - my 2003 version of norton is registered and paid for, but it was a installed by the store I purchased it from (I presume, it was on the comp when I bought it) so if I uninstall I have no disk to load it from.
When I search the net for a downloadable version - thinking I type in my registration number and Symantec will let me have a copy, I find no such luck - I must buy it again.
I resubscribed in April which is why I don't want to spend more money, but it seems to have remebered my registration details and reset the expiry date because of the system restore.
Does ANYBODY have any ideas on what I can do?
I apologise for the hand wringing and realise this may just be a giant case of 'oh boohoo I'm so stupid I need some sympathy' but someone may have an idea that can help.
Thankyou in advance!

First, thanks to all who support and help others on this Forum ! . . . I have surfed my butt through every post in Hardware trying to figure out the solution to my wife's keyboard problem. Ironically I think I fixed this racka-frackas-gamma-glomits 2-3 years ago, but now can't remember the fix. >>>> WINDOWS 98, plain-Jane 101/10 keyboard will not respond on the e433 machine. Works fine on my XP machine. USB keyboard works fine on the e433. Wife hates my USB keyboard. Wants "hers" ! Have spent hours and hours now, removing/reinstalling the keyboard, updating driver, all the usual stuff. Device manager says "This device is working properly". Plug & Un-Plug lights all [3] lghts briefly, then only the POWER light remains on. . And the keyboard remains unresponsive. As I recall, the fix had something to do with numbers that should be in a box in driver poperties . . .. Ring any bells for anyone out there? Standing by on the freq'. Appreciate any help or suggesions. THANKS !

I just switched to alltel's wireless service, using a pantech um175. Ideally, I would like to have an "always on" desktop, connecting pantech through it and just broadcasting for other machines (laptop running vista and wii) to pick up....if that is even possible.

I have a linksys WRT54G router, and I've tinkered with the settings through my own research and only ended up more confused and still no juice. My other machines can detect the network and connect, but I only get internet with the machine that actually has the pantech attached.

Have the pantech connected to laptop now, even tried a usb to ethernet adapter to connect directly to my wii, turned on ics for alltel's adapter-had given up on networking and just tried to get access to download some apps, and wii can't establish a connection either....so there is obviously a huge point I'm missing here about sharing that connection. At this point I'm so frustrated the obvious could be staring me in the face and I'd be too busy cursing to notice

You need to enable DHCP on the wireless connection ( or wired connection if using the secondary router) and then enable ICS to share the Internet connection with the wireless link. If you're using the Linksys wireless router, I'd use the wired connection to connect the Linksys router to the computer.
Configure DHCP for Windows Vista.
Click on the Start menu, and select Control Panel.
Click on Network and Internet. (Skip this step if you do not see this Control Panel item.)
Click on Network and Sharing Center.
Click on Manage network connections.
Right click on Local Area Connection and choose Properties. If Windows say it needs your permission to continue, click Continue.
Select Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.
Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
Select Obtain DNS server address automatically.
Click OK to close the TCP/IP Properties window.
Click OK to close the Local Area Connection Properties window.
Click Close to close the Network Connections window.
Click Close to close the Control Panel window.
Restart your computer.

Next, if you feel the need to use the Linksys, configure it as follows.

I recently had to remove a trojan Anti Virus 2009 infection from my computer along with many other infections that this bogus program allowed on my system. All is back to normal except for one odd thing: I can't access Google Mail! Here's what I've done so far:

1. Tried the other versions of GMail like html, https, and older versions.
2. Deleted all cookies, temp internet files and history.
3. Reset IE 7's security settings.
4. Turned off firewall and anti-virus program.
5. Installed both Chrome and Firefox and tried them.

Each time, I get a 'page cannot be displayed' type error message. System is a very ordinary Dell with 1GB RAM, Windows XP with all service packs installed. GMail worked fine before the infection.

I'm at a loss as to what to try next.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
