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.)

i have a weird problem with my laptop, words i type don't show az i typed them.

for example:

Hi = h5
How are you = h6w are y64
pronounciation = -r6n64nc5at556n
it all happened after trying the windows xp "remote assistance" feature with my friend, and i got this problem during the connection, and even restarting the laptop didn't help to fix it !

i gave my friend remote control, he opened my msn 7 window, and clicked on the drawing thingy, but when i clicked on the text typing option, the problem occured, the letters i typed showed differently !

i guess something got messed up....

i'm sure that my friend didn't do anything to cause me this problem, and i can't use restore points cuz the "System Restore" option wasn't enabled before .

btw i'm using windows xp in my laptop and my friend was using a pc with windows xp..
please help me to fix this problem , i have no idea how to deal with it ( i really don't want to format the laptop just cuz of this ! )

ps: just to be more clear, i repeat my friend did NOT do anything to cause me this problem, and i didn't spill anything on my keyboard that caused me this problem..
 

A:Weird Problem With Typing !, letters i type show differently !

Press the Fn button by the Ctrl button on the bottom left of the keyboard and F11. You have accidentally enabled your keyboard number pad funtion.
If it is not F11, then look for the function key (F key) that has a calculator looking symbol on it.

Just recently my computer started doing the annoying thing where you try to type, but it freezes for a couple of seconds and then all the typing you did finally shows up. It does it when I try to scroll down a page, too; everything freezes for a few seconds before my cursor is responsive again. I have a fairly high-powered computer, and no extraneous programs are running. When I keep Task Manager running, I can see spikey activity in the CPU when these freeze-ups occur. I keep things well-defragged and spyware-free. After reading one of your forums, I saw a recommendation to download "HiJack This" from MajorGeeks.com, one of the best sites of all time. So I downloaded it, and here's the log file. Anyone see anything that could be causing this annoying problem (which has happened 3 times while typing this post)?? Thanks in advance.

My mother's computer started having issues with the keyboard, recently. I'll say it how i see it, but obviously, i might be missing something.

When typing the letter q on the keyboard, "qt" comes up. w and e are fine, r types "re". This happens with two different keyboards. I brought by my (this) keyboard, and it worked fine, but i only tried for a minute. On her computer, i tried both a ps2 and usb keyboard (native for both, no adapters).

Right now, if i try to login, when i click on a user, it fills in the password field (as if there was a stuck key) and tells me the caps lock is on. Capslock button does turn it off, but it did not look like backspace was doing anything. The bios did not complain of a stuck button. Safe mode (i happened to try with networking) has the same issue. No issue using the keyboard before windows loads.

Using teamviewer from my computer to hers is tough. I can hit capslock with sometimes works, keys sometimes work and sometimes don't, if it types in two letters, i can use the mouse to highlight one (to overwrite) when continuing. With a lot of effort and time i can login. Clicking icons on the desktop does not work, from the start menu does.

I tried hitting the helper menu to get the on screen keyboard for logging on. The first time i tried, it came up and worked. Now the button doesn't do anything.

I went into Device Manager (early on, when i could still do things) and deleted the keyboard. It made me reboot, but didn't se... Read more

A:Keyboard typing wrong letters

Just tried again via TeamViewer. I can delete in the password field, but it acts as if there is a stuck key. (This is different than the last time i tried.) The form with the option for the on screen keyboard now does come up, but the keyboard is an empty frame and the mouse cursor (while over the frame) shows the circle of waiting.

This is weird. It's like Schrodinger's cat or something. The problem changes every time i look at it!

It is necessary for you to replace the keyboard.It is not sending the correct signals to the motherboard. Yes, even a notebook computer has a replacable keyboard.It's a job best assigned to a qualified computer technician, to find and order a compatible keyboard, and to disassemble the laptop far enough to be able to swap the keyboard.

Folks,

I'm having a strange problem, and I am unable to find anything in my Hijack This log, nor is SpyBot able to locate anything.

Does any of you see anything amiss in here?

Here's the problem:

i) When I type in a page in IE that does not exist,
instead of getting the default DNS error page
I get directed instead to the following page:

"www. <typed URL>.org"

and a search page http://www.your.com/index.php?nf=1
pops-up!!

This is highly, highly exasperating. Just when I thought I'd cleaned out the last of the viruses, worms, and other garbage
plagueing my computer for the last few weeks!

Will the head honchos on this site provide some insights please!

Thanks much.

I tried deleting the Japanese IME and re-adding it, but it made no difference. Could this be caused by a virus? How can I fix it? It still works fine on my laptop, it's only my desktop that is affected.

Hi nfarrier, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Yes, it can be virus. Did you made any changes on the PC recently?

This has been happening every other day for me recently where I will be typing and my keyboard will randomly start typing the wrong letters or pressing certain keys will open the menu bar, but my computer to sleep or just type completely random letters. I've googled it once before and found that I should change the settings in control panel > regional and language settings which worked for me once but lately it doesn't.

I've even purposely added a foreign language and then re added my normal one (UK) but hasn't helped, it was already on the proper settings anyway. The last two times it has happened was on the night and left my keyboard unplugged, the next day I plugged my keyboard back into the tower while the computer was still loading up and it has been working fine now and did the same again last night. I don't know why it does this? Also google suggested a FN key but my keyboard doesn't have one.

When I restart or turn on my lap top after it's been off for a while it will only give me my background picture. No icons, no start menu at the bottom, nothing. Until I try to run a new task from the task manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL is the only keystroke-type command I know) Then everything starts appearing as if nothing was wrong. When I type online there is a huge delay between when I push the buttons and when they appear on the screen. My virus scans show nothing is wrong. (I use trend-mirco's firewall and virus scanning products and also use firefox and I don't know if trend-micro only works on internet explorer or not...) I tried defragmenting to try and speed up the typing ting but it did no good... I don't know what is wrong but I do know that I can't get the updates from the updates.microsort.com website even though they are in the trusted websites thing in internet explorer (which is what I used to try and get the updates because you can't get them through firefox) and every time I open the computer (even from stand-by) I get a message from trend micro telling me it is stopping unauthorized changes and that change is some sort of "program Library Injection" that has to be blocked about a hundred times in a minute for the first 2 to 5 minutes of the computer being on.

OS: Vista Ultimate
Script: Batch file
Goal: I'm writing a batch file that needs to call "ffmpeg" to create a movie from a series of jpeg files.

ffmpeg requires the list of jpegs to be specified with this string on the command line: %03d.jpg

My problem is that the batch file expands the "%0" out to be the string used to call this function.

Here's the exact string I'm using in the batch file:

call ffmpeg.lnk -i %base%\temp\stills\%03d.jpg -y -an %base%\temp\n%1-%2-%3.mp4

I've tried escaping the % with ^ and %% and %%%% and with single, double, and back quotes. No joy.
I have not yet tried expanding the whole string into a file, and then calling the file. That seems inelegant, but worth some experimentation...

Any help would be appreciated.

I noticed over the weekend when I go to speedtest.net it shows the wrong location. I live on the east outskirts of London yet it thinks my nearest test server is Aberdeen / Edinburgh. If I go to edge, the home/start page which can be customised shows weather for Edinburgh! I have manually customised for London to fix this rather than let it auto detect. But it's weird. If I open the maps app it shows me on the map in the correct location!

its worth noting that I am seeing the same problem on my iMac when I go to speedtest.net so it's not a Windows problem but it's still left me scratching my head and also wondering why the maps apps on both machines get the location correct. Both connect via Ethernet.

on my iPad and iPhone which use wifi, launching the speedtest app gives the correct location/nearest server

A:Speedtest.net and edge show wrong location

I'd heard that speed test will find the server nearest where your internet provider's address is, I have to manually choose Manchester as that's the closest to me but automatically it can choose Maidenhead or elsewhere other than where I am.

Hi,

some days ago, when analyzing another problem, i stumbled upon a fatal error in the CPU performance display in the Microsoft task manager. I wrote a little bit about this problem in the following post.

https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2269972-weird-4gbit-s-nic-limit-without-rss?page=1#entry-8853...

In summary: for me, the task manager as well as the resource monitor and the performance monitor do not show the correct CPU utilization.

Here is an example.

I start a test and the CPU display of core 0 climbs to 100% in Task Manager.




The Resource Monitor shows the same thing.




Only the performance monitor shows the correct load, but the display it "inconsistent".




The processor load is normally shown up to max. 100%, but my core 0 run according to the performance monitoring with up to 120%. ??

The Process Explorer shows the correct utilization of my core 0.



HWiNFO also shows the load correctly.



I suddenly had the following apprehension.
If you cannot correctly measure the utilization of a system, so it's not possible to control its performance properly. ??

So I immediately opened a support ticket at Microsoft by telephone and then described the problem accordingly by email.

A few hours later I received an email with the following text. "Dear Mr. Fuchs, your support case has been closed."

???
That can not be true. ?
Dear Microsoft, determining and displaying the CPU loa... Read more

I have this problem that's more an an aesthetic issue than anything, but it's rather annoying. I have my icons set to be rather large on my desktop, and I download custom icons for everything to match. About halfway through the day, about half of my icons were small, for no reason. I've tried refreshing my desktop, restarting, deleting the icons and remaking them, and changing the icon, then changing it back and none of that has worked. There has to be a solution I"m not aware of, and an internet search hasn't helped. Any suggestions?

My AT&T 2wire modem died and I purchased one from Louisville, KY. I reset back to default and went back through the wizard and I can connect and works fine. However for my apps that use location services like weather.com, yahoo.com, etc. it is still showing Louisville, KY and I live in Atlanta, GA. This isn't really preventing anything other than I usually use my droid to quickly check the weather which is no longer possible. How can I get this corrected? I have submitted a question to Pace which owns 2wire now but have not heard back yet. Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:2wire att modem show wrong location

Check the timezone settings in the router, but usually those sites uses your IP address (the one the modem gets from the ISP). To check, try this site to see where you are located.

Hi

If I am having a problem with my PC and you guys say to me, copy and paste the systems activity into a thread so we can all see whats going on. Yeah, easy for you to say

I was having problems with my hard drive running on so I went to start\run\cmd and typed in c:task.txt and the system processes came up, I copied them all and tried to paste them into a thread and when I pasted the info, it pasted all over the freakin' place and was hardly legible for you guys to see.

Is there a better way?

Thanks

A:How do I paste a screen to a thread to show you whats wrong

Hi Brian,

This is actually quite simple, although I had a bit of difficulty fathoming it out for my first post. There are actually 2 main methods. The first, if all the necessary data is on the screen, is to use the 'Sniping Tool' and create an image which you save to your hard drive (you can tidy the image up in 'Paint' if you wish). If they are text files, then save them as normal. When you wish to include them in a post, or a reply to a post, you need to select the 'Advanced' option. One of the options here is 'Attachments' (symbolised by a paperclip). If you click on this, another window opens entitled 'Manage Attachments'. This is split into 3 sections. The top 2 sections are what you are interested in, whilst the 3 section lists the valid file types and restrictions (if any). The first section is 'Upload Fle from your Computer'. Here you can upload a maximum of 4 files from your computer. Simply click 'Browse...' and locate the required file(s) - 1 per box. I have no experience of the other option, 'Upload File from a URL', but I presume that it is used for when you wish to link to a website - perhaps someone could clarify this for me and explain this particular option. Either way, you then click 'Upload' in the appropriate section. The file(s) are then uploaded to the forum servers where they are allocated a reference number. You then need to click on 'Close this window'. When you next click on the paperclip, you will see a list of file(s) that you can include in ... Read more

Just got a new mobo/CPU, installed, everythings fine. I'm unsure if this problem was on the old hardware.. if it was I never noticed it. Overclock test time, so I run prime95 and go do some errands. Come back to the computer rebooted, no problem.. thats why we test. I go into event viewer, and notice all the times are 12 hours too fast. Things I did at 7:30am, are showing up as 7:30pm. Things I did at noon, are showing up as midnight the next day. So I check Prime95 results:

Not sure f I could be of much help but have a look at this thread in relation to time-synchronization. You could try that to see if the issue persists.

- not terribly good grammar in that header... sorry!
My problem is in my very long document (92,000 words), into which I've just replaced a font with another, that I downloaded from a reputable site.
I tell you about the reputableness because the problem I'm now experiencing I was having the other day, in a slightly different format...
When I turn on Show/Hide, which I do often, instead of seeing small dots representing character spaces, there are empty squares. (Sorry, I haven't been here for ages, and have forgotten how to post a screen-grab as evidence.)
A couple of days ago, the problem - now gone - was that in tables I was seeing euro signs instead of the little round thinggy with the four prongs.
So I would seem to have some deep-seated... SOMETHING going on, yeah?
Can anyone help, please?
