My most complex surgery I ever did

Q: My most complex surgery I ever did

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.

Preferred Solution: My most complex surgery I ever did

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.)

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.

Hi,i was hoping someone can tell me what i should do next.i had Empire monkey

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.

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.

I can call HP (AGAIN) but (no offense to anyone) I just hate to talk to people I have trouble understanding. Thought someone here might be able to help.

Appreciate any help.

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?

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 is leading the team with 23 tackles through two games, including one tackle for loss. He was a first-team Associated Press All-SEC pick last season and is a team captain.
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've got two identical machines except one doesnt boot. Now before you all flame me re reading other posts, this has not been covered by anyone I guarentee.

I worked out that my proccessor must have had it, when I replaced my p2 450mhz procc. from my working machine into my non working machine and hey presto my machine that didnt work now does. So I went to a second hand computer dealer and bought myself a p2 233mhz procc for approximately £10.

Anyway I took it home and plugged it in with a fan and it doesnt work, so I took it back to the shop who tested it for me and it worked AAAAARRRRRGGGHHHH.

Hello, (thank you all in advance)......

Approximately 6 months ago, my computer crashed and had some serious issues when i had left it alone. The monitor would be on, but it would not recieve data from the pc, and i tested out the monitor and hard drive. Both worked fine, so i assumed it was something else not working. Also, the computer smelled like burnt rubber somewhere(??) when turned on. this being a safety hazard, i opted to leave it alone.

As of black friday, i decided to resolve my computer issues and ordered new RAM, new power supply, and a new GPU. This did not solve my problems however, for my pc still would not boot up. I than ordered a new motherboard as well, and this made some progress in my case, but nonetheless, my PC would just boot to the screen that asks "safe mode, safe mode with networking last known good, etc" and when i selected an option would crash. After this fiasco, i accepted my fate and replaced the only thing left, the harddrive. I now own a 500gb WD but now it says on boot, "Disk I/0 error: Status 00003200".

Finally, i am near wits end because everything has been replaced (except for the case, lol) and my computer still will not boot, or accept any new operating systems. It has been far too much time, money or effort, than i have anticipated, and for the money spent i could have simply bought a laptop, but unfortunately i did not keep track of all the receipts.

Right now, it is somehow loading the win2k pro OS ... Read more

A:Complex Problem

If you replaced the motherboard, the LEAST you need to do is a Repair Install of XP. All of the drivers etc... from the previous motherboard will not work with the new one. The whole original XP Install was configured around that motherboard, and will not work with a new one, most of the time.

It's recommended to do a New Install of XP after changing the motherboard. You will also need to run the motherboard driver disk immediately after the install.

Gday guys i have a bit of a complex issue on my hands.

Im running a 2ghz core 2, 2gig ram dell m1210 (laptop) running vista sp1.

Now, about a month ago my gpu died, and i managed to get into my settings and disable my graphics card drivers so i assume my screen (which is working) is running on integrated graphics or something (max resolution 1024*768).

I want to upgrade to xp sp3, as i use processor intensive music production programs regularly.

So, how do i go about this without bricking my computer.

The main problem is the need for my computer to run on intergrated graphics as opposed to the gpu which is useless while im installing and running xp sp3.

I hope this makes sense.

Cheers for your help!!!

Summary of problem:
My family has been having trouble with this laptop for some time now. I've taken up the task of trying to solve whatever problem it may have. I find myself at a dead end though. I found that the computer, get this, had no anti virus protection. So I installed AVG. However, AVG will not update.

My list
1. Internet explorer works 50/50. "Aborts operation" Checked the proxies and just about whatever Google had to offer.
2. No other browsers will work
3. Windows update doesn't work -- And if it does the updates render the computer's internet connection worthless
4. Updates on anti virus security do not work
5. Portable Spybot S&D and ClamWinPortable found nothing.

ClamWin and Spybot S&D were downloaded, installed, and updated on a fully functioning computer and installed onto a USB flash drive.

Long story short, I'm a private instrument teacher and am trying to create a workbook to help create invoices, manage attendance, etc.

The problem:

In Worksheet B, I will be keeping attendance. In Worksheet C, based on the dates listed on Worksheet A and the attendance in Worksheet B, I need to generate a list of the Tuesday dates for April. I cannot just use date equations because I need the changes I make on Worksheet B to show up while this whole thing references Worksheet A.

I believe this one is a hard one. I will try to provide as much info as possible. I have a labtop which ws given to me from my school. My school has a wireless set up which uses Novell. At home I have a wireless Windows setup. So I attempted to make my school labtop get on board with my home PCs. At first everything worked out for the best without much setup needed. My labtop showed that it detected the wireless network and it connected to it and to the internet. All of a sudden for one reason or the other during a online game my MSN Zone connection will be terminated and right after it disconnects me my wireless network connection is gone. But a second later it pops up again. But it says something like "you have two wireless networks to choose from". Im not sure where the other one came from but I know that one is garbage. I am using a wirless linksys router and everytime I sign on with my labtop instead of going through their novell setup which is password protected I just log on as a windows workstation. If anyone knows any problem I am overlooking feel free to help!

On the other hand lol, I know and respect the helpers on this site enough to know that if no one answers that it was a bit much to ask! Dont worry about it! (im serious)

I have a complex problem. Here are the (strange?) symptoms. I am running windows Xp. A few days ago my internet connection came up as limited or no connectivity. All of a sudden B1.exe, B2.exe, B3.exe, etc. Started filling the desktop. I used system restore and everything was ok for a couple of days. Now, I have several problems. First, explorer.exe is using between 60000 to 100000k on the task manager. Two, sometimes the desktop just disappears. No error message or anything. Three, when using internet explorer, the cursor goes away randomly like it's running in the background, but there are only popups sometimes. Four, now I only get a black screen when running in safe mode. I run the taskmgr and try to open the desktop, but it will only come up for a few seconds. Finally, I have noticed today that all of the desktop icons seem to have a blue outline. I am running Defender Pro antivirus and spyware protector.

There is another wire coming out of the router and into a Time Capsule which broadcasts the internet, printing and file sharing around the house. We have three computers in the house: A windows XP desktop, a Macbook Pro, and a windows 7 laptop. Both laptops can connect to the network just fine, with wireless printing, but the desktop can connect to the internet fine, but when printing prints out junk. The steps i have taken to stop this are as follows:

Re-install drivers

Restart computer, and printer

Hi everyone,

I am currently trying to repair my mom's Compaq Presario SR1950NX, which has a couple of conflicting problems:

1) Not recognizing USB/PS2 mouse or keyboard even during POST
*Occasionally, a PS2 keyboard will work, but that pretty much only happens when the system decides to boot into the OS. And that brings me to...

2) Only boots into the OS *sometimes*
*By "sometimes", I mean like once in every 15-20 boots or so. While WinXP and Win7 were loaded, I got the "corrupt/missing C:\\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl.exe" error during most boots (started with XP, got that error; installed 7, still got the error), but every once in a while, I could get all the way to the OS, but the mouse wouldn't work and the [PS2] keyboard sometimes would and sometimes wouldn't work . Today I clean-installed Win8 (with a PS2 keyboard and no mouse) to see if that would fix the problem, but no dice. After the manufacturer splash screen, the system displays a blinking cursor on an otherwise blank screen and just sits. Also, since the input devices don't work, I can't see or change the BIOS settings.

Any help would be IMMENSELY appreciated, as I have been working on this thing for almost 2 months. :-/

ATI Radeon 9700 Pro,
Sound Blaster Audigy Gamer...blah,blah, blah...

The system when I started it powered up, but would not POST and the monitor did not come on.
I then took my 9700 out and put my brothers GeForce4 Ti4200 in, and the system started fine.
No problems.
I put the 9700 in my brothers system, and it was fine.

I then uninstalled the GeForce4, added the ATI 9700 Pro drivers, and powered off.
Changed the cards, and the same thing happend.
The system powered up, but would not POST and the monitor would not come on.

When i put my brothers GF4 in, my system started in the BIOS screen for safe mode, and it had a message that read,
"During your last bootup, the system hung due to a low CPU speed setting...."
It then told me to check to make sure the systems BIOS was supporting my CPU speed.

Why would a video card change the CPU speed setting, and how do i change it to make the 9700 work on my system?

*Things to remember....
My system worked fine with a GeForce4 Video card, and the ATI Radeon 9700 Pro worked fine in a different system.

Please help, this system costed me a lot to build, and I am sick of owning a 2,000 dollar paper weight.

Hi All,

I have 2 relatively complex questions. The first is about NTFS-3G. I have a large .m2ts file and placed it on my NTFS formatted HDD. I would like to plug my NTFS formatted external into my PS3 to try and watch that .m2ts file. However, PS3 doesn't recognize NTFS because it is a format used only for Windows. With FAT32 (which PS3 does recognize), you can only fit a maximum individual file size of 3.99GB, but this .m2ts format is obviously much larger than that, being that it is direct BD format. Is it possible to format my external HDD in NTFS-3G? I read up on this and hear that NTFS-3G works with many OSs including Linux and Unix, as well as the Mac OS. It also allows individual files to be larger than 3.99GBs. I would like to try to re-format my external to NTFS-3G and put my .m2ts file on it, then see if the PS3 will recognize it because as far as I know, the PS3 has a Unix like OS build. That's question one...any help on that would be dyno----mmiiiggght! lol

My second question is about over-clocking. I have a Dell Studio XPS running an Intel Core 2 Duo T9550 @ 2.66GHz. This is a laptop. Is it worth over-clocking, as I do enjoy to game from time to time. Is it capable of safely over clocking...and lastly, if yes to the first over-clocking questions...how do I over-clock it?

Any help with any of this would be huge...I really appreciate it!

Hi. This is my first question at your forum, so please forgive me if I've somehow posted it incorrectly. But, I have problems I don't know how to resolve on my own and may develop into worse problems.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501. It's running Vista 32-bit and Office 2007. I have a program called Anonymizer on it (www.anonymizer.com) and Norton Anti-Virus latest edition to come out.

Some time ago, I tried to update to IE 8 and it seemed to wreak havoc on my system. I tried to uninstall it. Made things worse. I took it to a computer repair store nearby and told them: My system often freezes when you turn the laptop on and I have to do Control + Alt+ Delete several times to get past the start-up screen. Sometimes it will start fine.

Other problems: Sometimes a gray box will pop up saying that the Semantec Framework has stopped working, or something like that (can't remember the exact words).

After taking the laptop to a local library once, the Anonymizer program stopped working completely. Their IT said it could have to do with IE8 not being supported but they couldn't say for sure.

Anyway, after I took it to their shop, they reinstalled IE8 but it can only run by clicking "Run as Administrator." The other problems....freezing at start-up, Sematec thing, are still there.

After a while, the CyberLink Power2Go program for burning CDs and DVDs stopped working. It says that no matter what I do, it cannot read any CDs or DVDs put into th... Read more

A:Complex Problem for Newbie

Sorry to say it, but it sounds too messed up to fix imo.

I would often suggest a Windows repair install for fairly serious Windows problems, but I think yours is beyond that.

Personally, I would backup all valuable data and do a full format and reinstall.

Make a clean start. And then use a drive imaging program such as Macrium Reflect to safeguard against future screwups.

It will be a fair bit of work, but probably less work than trying to fix a seriously damaged Windows - which may never quite be right again.

Good luck

Try doing a google search for "SQL tutorial" to get information on the syntax for such queries.

You can download and run MySQL or PostgreSQL for free.

MySQL works really well. I've used it to store resume's of jobseekers on a company website. Postres is supposed to be even better, but it's been far too long since I've used it for me to comment on it.

I have an apartment complex that I would like to set up internet for.

Actually, i had thought, what if I could provide internet to the tenants, but charge for it.... kind of like a hotel, but only on a month to month basis. Thinking, maybe $20.00 per month.

Has anyone deployed something like this?

The building is two stories with four, two bedroom units upstairs and four, two bedroom unit downstairs.

I have found a company that does this, www.internetapartments.net, I have not spoke to them yet.

ok i have a gateway 500 performance computer with a 500 mhz pentium 3.
My problem is when i try to burn a cd some songs make the process freeze. im using easy cd craetor. I have tried 3 different cd burners. 1 internal and 2 external. i have tried slower speeds and it still freezes i always thought it was an underrun but i came to find out its not. I found a way to avoid it but now its just to annoying. I always download the stuff i burn form kazza or other file sharing programs. so the song that would freeze it would be like a 128 quality so i would just download the same song but a 192 quality or a different one. and it would burn fine. i have a feeling it might be something with the computer itself. ive been dealing with this problem since i bought a cd burner for the computer. ive tried everything to deal with it pertaining to buffer underun methods but it doesnt work. I use to not mind my alternative but it takes a while becuase i have a slow cd burner and i have to test all the songs before i can acctually make the cd.
If anyone can help me in any way possible i really would appreciate it tank you.

In Access 2007, I've been building a gazillion reports which are variations on a theme. They are typical break reports with grouping by this field and sometime grouping on that field...sometimes there is detail data and sometimes only the summary lines are displayed.

I've used the same sub-report on virtually all these reports. It is a brain dead sub-report with only one column in a detail line with no headers, summaries, etc. I'm using this because the rolled up data has a many to one relationship with the data in the sub-report. Normally this works great: when there is more than one sub-report line the rest of the detail line is blank.

BUT! On this one report (of course it is the next to last report!), I get a relatively unhelpful error message:

"This expression is typed incorrectly, or is too complex to be evaluated. For example, a numeric expression may contain too many complicated elements. Try simplifying the expression by assigning parts of the expression to variables"

Of course, the bad expression is not shown to me so I'm left to hunt for the problem with no flashlight.

If I delete the sub-report, the main report runs okay.

How can I debug this to figure out where the problem is? Thanks.

A:Solved: expression is too complex

Sometime MS Access is too smart. It turns out that when I was switching to a new version of the report, rather than delete a field and re-add it, I just changed the control source in the property sheet. However, I did not change the name of the control itself. So I created a situation where the sub report was trying to connect to two report controls with the same name.

Debugging this should be easier, but I got it.

Hi Everyone!
I am new to this forum, finally gave up and decided I need to ask for some help from some people with way more knowledge than I have.

Here is my dilemma.
I am not good at getting all the equipment to play nice together.

Here's the sequence, and how I assume is the best way to set this up.
I could be WAY off base so I made a diagram of the equipment and the ports.

Seimens Gigaset SE567 DSL modem
Juniper SSG-5
Trendnet POE switch into Juniper
Netgear into juniper
Axis PoE megapixel cameras into Trendnet PoE switch
Trendnet AP into juniper
Rackable server into Netgear router
Here is what I want to do.
And if I need another PoE switch let me know, I am kind of leaning that way.

I have a network of IP cameras that are PoE
The rackable server runs WinXP SP3 and the dvr/nvr software to record the cameras.
The trendnet AP will provide internet access to tenants in the building. It would be nice for them to be able to see the cameras real time but NOT have access to the server.
I want 2 networks, one for the tenants, and one internal for me, the server, and my personal NAS.

I want to be able to VPN into the server to monitor the property from another location.
I don't know if I need the netgear VPN if I have the Juniper, you don't need vpn equipment on both ends do you?

On another note I did setup DynDns and have it working on the dsl modem, and I can log onto it from the internet, but I don't understand how to get through it to the juniper or the netgear router.

Fairly Experienced Excel user but terrible with Databases (this may require a Database)

I have a Main Array with an index (sorted single word names, first column) and 6 additional data fields which may or may not contain data.

threesiks 8 T44 M6A2E1
tomcat0870 5 5
Trexdog 10 T30 M26
tungstun 8 IS3 ISU-152 Ferdi

I have 4 additional single column arrays which are not sorted but contain data in a preferred order (top down preference).

Array 1
Ausf B

Array 2

So, I have the name of a person say Trexdog. I need the result to look like

Name Array1_results Array2_results
Trexdog T30 M26

The T30 is pulled from array 1 as the most preferred piece of data.
the M26 is pulled from Array 2 as the most preferred piece of data (since the values above it are not present)

Total output from the above would be
threesiks M6A2E1
Trexdog T30 M26
tungstun IS3 Ferdi

Note that Tungstun has 2 separate results in array2 but only the more preferred piece of data is displayed.

I need to create a macro which calculates the number of 5 day workweeks between 2 dates. The output for the calculation needs to be displayed in a specific format, think timeline, ie year on top row, month on second row, number of work weeks in bottom row below the month. Is this possible?

It would look something like this...excuse the shotty formatting and made up numbers:

Input in say...cells A1 and A2
start date 7/15/11 (user entered date)
finish date 2/4/12 (user entered date)

Output in rows C, D, & E

| 4.4 | 4.2 | 4.4 | 4.2 | 4.0 | 4.4 | 4.4 | 0.6 |

Is this possible?

I have attached a blank database with a form that is too complex for me to figure out, but you know, the boss wants it her way.

I think the best way to approach this is to tell you how the user will use the form then see what the code should be.

The user will select a PVendor # from the combo box which should then populate the MVendor # combo box below it. I would also like this to update a text box with the vendors name. The tricky part is getting the Pvendor combo box selection to MVendor box.

The rest of the boxes on the top half of the form function as they should with combo boxes pulling down from respected tables.

The bottom half of the form is also tricky. I need the top half of the form to add records to a Business Review table, and the bottom half of the form to add records to an "action item table". Each line in the bottom box should be a new record in the action item table. I don't know how to make a button that appends the top fields to a table and the bottom fields to a separate table.

Hi there,

i have this ''complex'' problem, where i was hoping to get an answer for, and anyone who could help me with this would be my hero. I hope i made it as clear as possible.

Problem 1

So this is what is wrong, i have Windows XP PC, where the internet works fine. But, i often get this error 797 : Connection to modem failed, and then im asked to fill in a username and password. Also my telephone number is named there, but i don't know what to fill in for username/pass. Besides, we don't have a modem, we have a router which has 3 PC's connected to it, and my Xbox. Before, during and after the error my internet continues to work fine.

In addition, my PC works fine aswell, along with the internet connection. It isn't going slow at all, but that error message is bugging me. And i think another problem here is related to it.

Problem 2

Our router at home is located in a small room, where my Xbox is located aswell. Xbox Live works perfectly there. From the router, 3 cabels run to 3 PC's, up trough the wall on another floor and the other cable to a laptop on the same floor. There is also a small cable directly connected to my Xbox.

As you could imagine, the cable ends in the wall in the room where the PC's are, where we have to plug in another internet cable from that plug in the wall to the PC. ( just additional information, it might help )
All the internet connections in the other room's work fine aswell.
