Trackpad doesn't work, gives error "code 10" on every other boot

Q: Trackpad doesn't work, gives error "code 10" on every other boot

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.

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.)

Mods, if you feel that this thread is more of a "Windows" issue, please feel free to move this thread.

Here last year I did my second build because I was having "boot" issues. Wasn't certain what exactly the problem was at the time. But something some how screwed up the boot sequence in my system, and where everything was pretty much "outdated." I just went ahead and did another build.

Though, since then I've been pondering around with the thought of using a SATA to IDE adapter so that I can retrieve what ever salvageable data I can from one of the two HDD's that was in my last build. So I finally broke down and ordered a couple different one's earlier this week.

Unfortunately, I've been running in to some problem(s) when I try to launch with the IDE in place.

Upon initial launching, the boot sequence seem to take some time longer than it normally does with out the IDE HDD in place. Though after a 15-20sec lapse I'll get an error screen displaying an windows error code of "0xc000000e" with a prompt message below stating "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible"

I searched all over online to see what that error code represents, only to get "pages after pages" of sites with each site telling me something different.

I have no intentions of using this as a third HDD in my system. I just want to retrieve select data from it.

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.

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.

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.

Whenever I plug in my USB device it wants to "scan and fix" but works if I just continue. On the other hand the G drive which is for my SD card gives me errors of corruption even before I took it out for the first time. Something is up with the drives and they are updated and all that. Also, with the SD card it doesn't let me delete and when I do add it is just the folder without the contents which then I can't delete. Help me fix this problem. I have a LX series Gateway computer with the pop up drive if that gives you any idea what I am dealing with.

After browsing through many of the threads here I have decided to post my own as I am unable to come to any conclusions.

MSI, Pentium 4 1.9GHz, 2x60 GB HD (Maxtor ???), 2x256MD DDR-266

It won┤t boot at all - none of the F8 boot options work, which I have tried several times after recieving the following error:

Dialog Box Heading: WINLOGON.EXE - Bad Image
Message (not exactly): c:\windows\WnSxS\xxxxxxxxxWindows.Common.Controlsxxxxxxxxxxxx - bad image

I have used the Recovery Console to browse around a bit to see if I can trace what happened, find suspisious files, looking at *.log files etc. Nothing.

All attempts to boot (all boot options) result in the same situation: the regular WinXP load screen appears, then it turns black, mouse appears and there I sit waiting for the login screen. I am still able to move mouse, but no other actions have any effect.

I have had the machine for 2 years and never had any serious issues and I have kept drivers and Xp updated (except I haven┤t installed SP2 yet).

Thanks for anything that might help.

PS! Reinstall is not an option (yet)

As the above title describes ""Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

I've tried every possible fix. CMD -> ipconfig /release - ipconfig /renew - reboot computer, nothing happens.

On the Network Sharing Center - I get my Network shown as "Unidentified Network."

I tried Uninstalling and Re-Installing the NIC, no luck. Updating the Driver didn't help either as it says it's up-to-date.

I've tried manually assigning the IP address, but I don't think I did it correctly, as I am quite new with Networking problems and especially with all the IP addresses', DNS, DHCP. etc. So I need support with that and try it out whether that fix will work, although I doubt at this point since I tried everything.

I tried disabling the IPv6 as well that did nothing too.

I also RESET my router, which also had no affect. I am using the VIRGINMEDIA SUPER HUB ROUTER. It's a Fibre Optic Connection.

I also called my ISP, they suggested the Internet is all stable and has no connection problems. The Technician I spoke to over the phone said that there is something at fault with my computer itself and not the Router or Internet connection. In other words, my NIC.

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

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

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.

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.


CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS??

ITS A MAJOR BUG in WINDOWS 7.

I MEAN U CANNOT ASK SOMEONE TO UPGRADE his OPERATING SYSTEM AT THE EXPENSE OF CHANGING HIS HARDWARES.

THANK YOU.

A:"Intel 82865G Graphics Controller" doesn't work ??

It is a driver issue. I suggest that you download the driver from HP website, remove the existed driver and install the new downloaded driver.

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?

A:My [CTRL]+A "select all" keyboard shortcut doesn't work

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!

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

A:"Add or Remove Programs" doesn┤t work anymore (in Metro)

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 four computers running Win10. On two of them the windows "Start" button on the task bar doesn't work. So I can't get to Settings or Apps. I can right click on the Start button and get the "right-click menu". All of the other task bar buttons work.

What's going on with this? It used to work. For a while it didn't work on my laptop, now that is working but on two other desktop computers it doesn't work. All computers have same Win10 version and latest updates (although hardware differs some between them).

Can I add the "Settings" and "All Apps" shortcut I would normally get left-clicking on the Start button to the Start button's "right-click menu"?

Hi TimFF,
This might be related with the UAC settings, check this thread:

The steps in the above thread is not recommended.
For the short name usage, we may consider to create a directory-junction from

With the following commands:

Reference:

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.

What item are you deleting, and from what location? If it's from a system folder location (ex: Program Files, Windows, etc....), then you will still get the Continue prompt for UAC approval to delete the item.

I've had windows 10 for several months (previously had windows 7). Up until yesterday, when I clicked on "all apps" an alphabetical list would come up, I'd scroll to what I wanted, and click on it. If there was an item with a sublisting, like Microsoft office a down symbol would appear. Click on that and the sublisting would appear and I could select word, excel, etc. Now when I click on the down symbol it just flips to an up symbol ^ and no sub menu appears. I'd really like to get to excel. This failure to bring up a sub menu happens for every down symbol, not just Microsoft office. What do I do? Try to re-load Windows 10? Uninstall and reinstall Office? Thanks

A:"All Apps" function doesn't work properly

Hi, do you have any idea what happened yesterday? For example, if you look at your update history- did you receive an update?

Do you have System Restore on, and do you have any useful restore points?

Do you use system imaging (Windows Backup and Restore) or disk imaging which we keep strongly recommending here; that means you can restore an image previously created and get your Windows back running as was without technical help - and even recover from a disk failure or an unbootable PC? (e.g. Macrium reflect (free)).

Those could give you ways to recover.

What is your build version? (Windows key + R, winver).

If you haven't started using those vital recovery methods yet, you could try this:

I hate it when I double click a file and Windows 8.1 pops up a message saying I have other apps that can handle this extension.

I disabled this notification through GPEDIT.MSC, it works now when I open pics/docs/etc.... but let's say I install another app, for example, when I install Pale Moon Browser, the moment I launch it the popup still comes telling me I have other apps that can handle bla bla bla

anyone had any luck with this ?

I hate Windows 8 so much! Even with a start menu replacement, this ticks me off, it's crappy Wireless LAN manager sucks, its performance is less when I benchmarks my SSD

I don't know what to do. I can go back to 7, but I am trying to fix a few things if I could just to benefit from the UEFI boot mode as for installing 7, I have to enable legacy ROM which is much slower during boot.

A:Do not show "new app installed notification" doesn't work

Just go to the Start Screen and type 'notifications'. One of the entries should be 'notifications settings'. Just click on it and you should see a screen with all the settings you need to control notifications.

You can disable them all, turn them off during certain hours or even customize them per individual app.

Sorry to hear you are having so many problems with Windows 8. Personally I have little or no problem with it. It's different, but much better in many ways.

Let me know what exactly what problems you're having and maybe I can help.

When I open, save or whatever, with any software like Photoshop, Dreamweaver etc, the files are not arranged by name like they should be.

I select arrange by name and they do. But next time I go to open something, they are all over the place again.

This came about when I turned XP's indexing off. (I turned it back on but it didn't fic the prob.)

I have tried everything to no avail.

Explorer works fine. Everything is arranged how I want. Word, Exel etc are OK. Just other vendors software is where the problem occurs.

Anyone know a fix for this perplexing problem?

Thanks.
