XP Network Corruption

Q: XP Network Corruption

I've posted this question on other forums and so far, no one has been able to help. I have an XP SP3 desktop, Time Warner cable modem, LinkSys WRT310N V2 router. I also have a Win7 laptop connected to the router.

From time to time, usually once a day, but sometimes, more often, and ONLY on the XP computer, I lose all network connectivity. This includes the net and local mappings. When it occurs, I cannot raise the router (or anything) via HTTP, even using IP addresses. I can, however, ping ip addresses. I've tried recycling the router, but nothing except rebooting the computer helps.

When it occurs, the Win7 laptop is OK. HOWEVER, I did find that when my cell phone uses my wireless router instead of the cell tower, it has the same problems.

WHEN the WIN7 laptop connects via wireless, it has no problems.

Other problems also occur: For instance, on this site, I get "invalid URL" messages. And just a few minutes ago, when I tried to view my blog, I got invalid URL "/..." but now I don't.

I've run various anti-virus apps; nothing is amiss.

This is my second router.

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.)

A: XP Network Corruption

There's is probably nothing wrong with your computer. If you can't access the Router setup even after recycling the power, with all computers, then there is a problem with the Router or Modem. The computers that are wired, try replacing the cable. If it persists, eliminate the router for a test. If a direct connection to the modem test good all the time, then it is the cable to the router, or the router itself. Try updating the Firmware for the router. Or go to the live support chat for Linksys.

My company computer (hooked up to our internal network;no homegroup) has just had a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. I went through the process of mapping network drives and had a problem when it came to connecting to IP addresses and folders in the format of '\\server\shared folder'. Turned out that I had to change a security setting. Following the instructions on this site, I was able to resolve that issue.

These network locations are CNC machines and the files that I am placing on the machines contain CNC code (G&M code and X, Y, Z values for 3D machining). Basically, G&M code cannot have multiple X, Y or Z values on the same line (it wouldn't make sense to go to two X locations in the same move). When I transfer CNC files from a network location (all of our files are stored on a server) to the CNC machine, they occasionally get corrupted where part of one file is contained in another file.

I have tried transferring one at a time and in bulk, both with the same result.

Does anyone have any insight into this problem? I am going to continue exploring potential fixes and will post updates as I find things. Any help would be appreciated.

Up untill today my PC has been working a-ok. I first encountered the problem when i was palying a online mmo. After a couple of hours playing i entered a world and some graphical corruption occured where green pixels seem to appear in bands where the lighter colours where. After a short while the pc locked up,with loads of green pixels appearing and the last split second of sound caught in a loop.Nothing worked,mouse keyboard,even the lights for numlock,scroll lock and capslock did not respond to the keys being pressed.it has happened almost every time i tried a game since then.

I rebooted my pc and it was fine untill i was loging into the pc,where more of the same graphical corruption occured,when i logged in after a short while the pc froze on my desktop and hr monitor lost signal.after a few seconds it came back on an a message appeqred in the corner by the toolbar saying Kernel driver 258.96 had failed but had been recovered, his happened a few times. Windows works perfect in safe mode and i updated the graphics card drivers to try and resolve this but it did not work,i am posting this off my iPod so pardon the bad spelling,will upload a picture or video tomorrow wih more info if needed.

I am a mac user and I own a site that has downloads available for purchase. They are zip files with psd's in them. I have two windows 7 clients who can download the entire file and unzip it and everything show up except the psd files.

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light as to why this is happening.

Thanks!

A:zip corruption

Welcome Paigeypar to the windows 7 forums.

There is the possibility that the .psd files that you created are not compatible with the intel version of photoshop.
or, your zip program is only zipping up the fork files and not the data files. Not being a mac person, I do remember from my mac days that the mac uses two files to make a pair, one being the resource fork and one being the data fork. Most pc's ignore the resource fork and only use the data fork.

Hope this helps

fresh install of OS(Windows Vista) installed on 80 GB HD, and one of my 400 GB hard drives has crashed

so where to start, well first of all i need to know how to repair a corrupted version of windows 7. I have two hard drives atm one with windows 7 working and one with the corrupted version on it. The main issue here is when my friend was fixing my computer he didnt format the hard drive with win 7 on it properly and i now have about 500mb's if im lucky on that hard drive. So id like to know how do i go about fixing the other hard drive with the corrupted windows 7 on it and no i cant reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows on it since he lost the disk briefly after doing so and it may not have been all that legal.

In the end of it all id like to get windows 10, how i figured about doing this was to get my old hard drive working with win 7 on it, boot up using that then install win 10 on it since it would have enough space to get the files which my current one cant.

If anyone else knows a better way of eventually getting windows 10 as my os without all this trouble that would amazing, i just want a hd with space on it

uhh i dont know what other information to give, i'm fairly certain its the windows files that are corrupted since i can still run my old games from it and not the hard drive.

tl;dr win 7 corrupted, got new hd with win 7, didnt format correctly, ****, want win 10 but not enough hd space, help get meh win 10 somehow by fixing corrupted hd or black magic

ill be out for the next two hours kinda bad time to post this but oh well

I have a corrupted OE using version 6 IE, on an XP Home version machine. Both PC World and Microsoft said that I have to reinstall or download IE version 6 since OE is bundled with it. When I do that, I am told that I already have version 6, and it won't download, therefore correcting whatever is wrong with OE. My XP came preinstalled on my machine, so I have no specific XP disk to fix the problem. All I have is the standard restoration disk which restores the whole HD to the stone age.

I all of a sudden started getting messages about my DRM being corrupt when trying to use Rhapsody music subscription software. The software directed me to a microsoft web siite to upgrade windows components (see below). I then tried upgrading the Windows components from Microsoft web site, but the upgrade button is grayed out - don't know if this means no update available or means invalid windows. Working with their support, I was finally told my windows valid license key is corrupt (as in illegal copy - Not!). They washed their hands of me and said I had to contact Dell because they installed the OS. I do not really think it is a license key issue, but I am still trying to resolve the DRM problem.

IE won't load pages properly (with error), logging on,

I have to reboot and log on again to have it working for a while, and on and on.
So I decided to reinstall\repair IE and OE but I'm not sure of how it's done,

So heres the rap,

i have used the same install of windows XP for around 2-3 years without a format. ive updated all pc components in that time but kept the same install. of course i used all the relative driver cleaners before hand to reduce any clashes. I always kept the system clean and virus/ spyware free. never missed a beat until...

A few days ago i left my computer on all day whilst at work only to come home to a moniter screen which displayed 'no signal detected' so decided to reset it. then windows loading screen came on and near the end of the loading phase BSOD. i decided to boot in every other mode all followed with BSOD. i have never come across this before in my experience. I am very desperate to recover a few files within my documents including uni work and photos amounst other things <1gb in total id say.

to rule out hardware failure i tried booting it with another computer but BSOD still follows. it must be a software issue. or perhaps the hard drive it self?

i also threw the HDD in an external hard drive box and tried to load it as a mass storage device it does show up however i cant access it because it says it needs to be formatted. also windows displays the drive as empty instead of partially full which it should be.

any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
im sure this comes up alot but it does teach a valuable lesson to back up!

thanks,

kim
 

A:HDD corruption

Hello Kimbo
I would suggest that you d/l the tools from the website of the company that made your drive.
Most major drive manufacturers offer such tools.
Some are great... and highly recommended.
Not all are fully compatible with hardware from other makers.
SeaTools may be useful across makers, but I cannot say that it may be used with all.
That is why I suggest going to the maker of your drive.
(When I changed drives, I found that the WD utility was better for my new WD drive, and the Toshiba utility better for the old drive).
Again, YMMV.

Run both S.M.A.R.T. and Long tests, especially the Long.
This will let you know if the drive is bad, and (hopefully) whether anything can be recovered.

A:possible OS corruption

You are headed in the right direction
0x24 indictes the NTFS file system and chkdsk /r should help.

I dont suppose that you can get to a command prompt?

As long as the bios is set to boot from the cd
I would try a few more times.
I have seen it take 6-7 tries before it will "hook up"

If the computer supports booting from a usb device that would be good.
If not you may need to hook it to your laptop to run chkdsk.

I am new to this forum and have a new computer and a new W7 pro 64bit
When I initially turn on computer the screen displays an illustrated information title of the gigabyte mother board,, then goes to a black screen with white lettering that flashes on briefly and appears to list the components of the system.
Why I believe there could be some corruption is that a flight sim game Rise of Flight is refusing to load. When i go to the start it tells me -"connection to master server was temporaily lost. check internet connections" All other sites are working.This change in Windows display occurred about the same time access to the game was denied which is why I I feel some problem has arisen within W7

A:possible corruption of W7?

Do you initially see something like this:



Then (or now) something like this:



?

The 1st is Gigabytes Splash screen. The 2nd is the BIOS screen. Usually, if you disable the splash screen, you will see the BIOS loading screen (which I prefer).

For me it was either/or, are you saying you now see one, and then the other? I won't be able to test it, but it's possible the BIOS is taking longer to load now and so the splash screen ends before the BIOS screen (which loads "behind " it) is finished. Does the boot take longer now? Perhaps the BIOS is hanging while your PC searched for a device? You could have a device (HDD, Optical drive) issue.

If not, this may just be a coincidence and you just need to troubleshoot your game issue. I don't think the OS itself is "corrupted". Have a look here and see if you don't find some help:

Rise Of Flight Blog

You may find your answer or an update to correct this. Looks like you must have a connection to server to play.

I'm having massive corruption issues running windows 7 ult 64. It regularly fails to boot and gives random bsod messages (Memory Managment, dll errors etc.).
I recently RMA'd the HD after it showed errors on the HD diagnostic utility (even after a complete wipe ) I also RMA'd the motherboard but it didn't change anything. At this point I have my eye on the wireless card (Rosewill RNX-G300EX PCI card). My thought is that (either through driver or hw fault) its causing some corruption in downloaded files, namely system updates. I also regularly get errors trying to open zip and executable files.

I'm working with a mS MVP on another board, but it's going stale and I'd thought I toss this over here and see if anybody has a suggestion. Approximately 3 weeks ago, when i started Internet Explorer this error message came up: In the above example, substitute sys restore, help center, sys info, management console etc To cut to the chase, as I tried to solve this error, it turns out several of the windows components return this error also even in safe mode, thus ruling out using system restore. sys restore is dead, sys info is dead, mmc, helpctr etc.. However, the computer works with my Corel Draw! program, the internet works with mozilla or Firefox. Things I've done is uninstalled add ons in Internet Explorer, dumped adobe, corel draw, ran hijackthis and run virus scans.. Here's a funny thing: Windows hot fix and security updates come on down the line and install no problem. But when you try to run sys restore you get that "* has encountered a prob and needs to close..." And of course Dr Watson has the same prob If there is an expert who wants to see the total history, here's the link:http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?t=23623 Nothing against Walter, just thought I'd ask if there is a fresh pair of eyes who might have a different opinion thanks all!!

A:Win Xp Corruption?

Wow! They've done a whole pile more than I could! Since the mshtml error seems to be common with all events - I'd suggest reinstalling SP2 to "repair" IE6. Also be sure to get all the Windows Updates.If that doesn't succeed, then I'd go with a repair install of XP (it'll save your data and programs): http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htmFWIW - here's a link to TrendMicro's online scanner that supports Firefox: http://uk.trendmicro-europe.com/consumer/h...call_launch.php

Hi, and thanks to all the kind people who are willing to help me.

Basically, here's my issue, with exception to the Steve Gibson bit, this is basically my problem, word for word.

http : // www . techspot . com /vb/topic9007. html

With DHCP and TCP/IP won't start due to error 1075: the dependency service does not exist of has been marked for deletion...the event veiwer error claims "(Service in question) depends on the fallowing nonexistent service: NetBT

It was present in my system32 file folder when I when looking for it, but in case it was corrupted I coppied it from a good computer.

It doesn't show up in everything from device manager to services under administrative tools.

In trying this person's solution, It was not listed under registry editor, but there was a .netbt

As in like, a dot (.) in front of it.... and that's really all I know.

I've been working on this since November and I feel so close, but now I'm stuck. I mean I have tried so much I can't remember half of it.

Ok, I'm new here, so please bear with me. I'm having a problem that I didn't see when I glanced through the forums and I thought maybe someone here could help.

That being said, I was doing a little bit of work on a friend of mine's computer recently. I'm not exactly sure how to describe it. When you turn on the power, the motherboard does it's loading screen and then i have the option of the BIOS and everything. You all know how that works. Then, the whole thing resets.

I've tried reinstalling Windows XP. That worked for a little while. Now it is doing this again. I thought that a possible fix might possibly be a boot disk. So, I changed the boot order on his computer and put in an XP boot disk. It is still going through this only to reset itself again and again. I have even left it alone to see if it would just finally get tired of it and load the OS, but it continues for hours.

I deal mostly with hardware, so I'm kind of at a loss. So, if you could please help in any way, it would be much appriciated. Thank you.

A:Memory Corruption?

While I do not expect a finite answer to my question, surely someone can shed at least a ray of light on this.

After posting this thread, I later received an error dialog that Cacheman had experienced a software error and it shutdown, without a BSOD. I cannot recall the terminology now, but it made me think that it might be linked to the BSODs that do regards memory functions. I left it shutdown to see, but I then started getting more frequent crashes. At this point, I have a hunch that Cacheman may be helping instead.

If no one has a solution, at least point me in a direction that I might find it myself.

Hello everyone!

I am here today with yet another XP problem, but I am sad to say this is not your average run of the mill registry corruption.

Background:
During an architectural rendering - my apartment's power went out - immediately shutting off my computer. Upon resetting the circuit breaker and rebooting, I was mortified to discover my computer would not boot at all. (I think it is important to note prior to the power outage - my computer was freezing periodically, {besides other applications, utorrent would always make it freeze.})

After reboot, when it comes to the screen that gives you several boot options (safe mode, last known good... etc.) any option I click won't work and it simply freezes until I force shut down.

I tried repairing windows XP but during the installation it says something in the nature of "cannot find original windows installation, please contact sys..."

I successfully loaded up a BartPE bootable windows - but the OS could not detect my hard drives (the drives are just empty.)

*I suspect my hard drives died

I have windows installed on a data drive, and I have another 2 500gb hitachi drives raided together. (Not the raid setup that mirrors - the one that screws my career over)

What can I do to recover my data? Is there any external enclosure that I can get or some way of repairing windows through BartPE even though it doesnt read c: drive? Midterm presentations are around the corner and I cannot afford to pay for da... Read more

A:XP Total Corruption?

You have a Raid 0 setup and likely had a Bios crash so you need someone to set your Bios up for Raid again and then it might actually just boot up OK (provided you haven't messed things up too much).

Hi guys,

could you help me identify the issue here? I'll try and provide as much info as possible
/
don't know if this part is relevant but usually the first question to ask is 'what were you doing before it happened?' So this happened three days ago, the last thing i did was attempt to run MAME (arcade games emulator) for X-Men vs Street Fighter with an xbox 360 controller modded with arcade fightstick parts. The game crashed while loading and after restarting, the boot up screens look like this:


and i was unable to boot windows (i'm running 7) at all, it would freeze on the bootscreen with similar corruption lines across the screen. it also shows the vista bootscreen, The green bar instead of the hi-def glowing lights that form the windows logo. i am able to boot into safe mode but these red squiggly lines moving diagonally upwards to the right overlay the entire screen (taking a screenshot in safe mode does not reflect the lines, so i think it's a hardware problem.


subsequently i took my brother's laptop hdd out and attached it to my pc, it performs the same way, so i'm certain it's not a problem with my hard disk.

any help with indentification of the issue or solutions would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance!

Hi,

For a long time, I've had just one administrator account on my Win7 x64 PC.

I've recently added a second administrator account but I see corruption on the welcome screen.

Here's what I see when Windows boots up. It says "Windows Security | Please enter a username and password."

When I click on "OK", I see the following: An account placeholder picture with no text beneath. Another placeholder for an account picture with "Other user" underneath.

Both my accounts have images associated with them, and they both have bespoke names (neither of which appear in the image):

When I click on either account, this is what I see:

I can log in by typing in the user name. Neither account have a password.

I was expecting to see the Welcome screen straight away and display the two accounts (names+images), then click to enter.

I have tried turning on and off classic log-in using the Tutorials > User Accounts (at the top of this website) but it doesn't make any difference to the initial corrupted screen.

Edit: To add, when I log in, then log out of either account, the welcome screen displays as normal (images+account names appear). That's the only time the welcome screen appears normally.

Anyone know how to resolve this corruption?

A:Welcome screen corruption

When you log in as the original administrator, can you access UAC stuff? If possible, and not too much of a hassle, in that case delete that second account you made.

So I finally converted to windows 10. Damn you Microsoft and your bs tactics. >,< After about a week I had just gotten everything installed and tweaked to my liking. For days all was well, until yesterday when I booted my computer to find all three monitors displaying this.

I immediately thought "BOOM there goes my graphics card!". But then I remembered seeing the uefi bios screen and the windows boot logo clearly so I figured it has got to be a software issue. I think windows loads fine, the display is just corrupted. I can kinda see the mouse moving around and my start menu pops up, hell I even ran sfc on the command line without being able to see it. I'd like to determine what's causing this and fix it so I don't have to re-install or at least so it doesn't happen again after.

My first thought was, okay what changed since yesterday? The first thing that came to mind was that I had run Ccleaner with CcEnhancer's custom rules. [check the attached images] I may have had a few more things checked at the time. Maybe I deleted something I shouldn't have. I didn't know how i'd go about fixing that so I started think of what else it may be. I had installed uxStyle to enable custom themes a couple days ago. I've heard that can be glitchy.

It's unfortunate that my first post on these forms is to address a rather large problem I've encountered while re-installing different OS's. It's my hope that you guys can help me out. Don't let me down!

Ok, here's the story. Despite all the vista nay-sayers, I decided to try it out anyway. I installed Vista Ultimate on my Compaq Presario sr1910nx. It worked relatively well, until one time I booted up - or at least, I tried. I was given the infinitely descriptive error message: "Missing Operating System". I decided that, well, Vista hadn't really met my expectations, so I popped my XP Home SP2 CD back in the drive, and went back.

The install went smoothly. I deleted existing partitions on my hard drive, and then installed XP to the resulting unpartitioned space. So, I welcomed my XP desktop with open arms.

It didn't do the same for me. XP fails to recognize most of my hardware, including but not limited to my network adapter and cd-rom drive.
