Preferred Solution: ODDPWR has stopped working and ePowertray has stopped working

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.)

Hello:
The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

I have had a rather large problem over the last couple of days. It started earlier in the week, when one drive stopped working. Not a big problem, I've had drives fail before. 4 disks, so i can handle one less for a little while, i though. Not so though, while still waiting for my new drive, using my computer like usual (with less load on unit D) i suddenly start getting write-errors to D:, and the Intel Matrix Storage Console lists it as Stopped Working instead of Degraded. Nothing changed except for the status of the Volume, all the disks read the same as before, fully functional.

I have very little experience with these sort of matters. This is the first time I've lost a drive where i might lose data as well, and i have pretty much no idea where to go from here. I've tried to replace the faulty disk with another 500GB drive, but the RAID-setup in BIOS just tells me there isn't enough space, and the Console in Windows places the new drive as a Non-RAID drive. I can mark it as reserve, but that seems to be all i can do with it.

I'm not, hopefully, asking for miracles. I have just two things that i really need to retrieve from the Volume, my Firefox sessions (saved in a separate folder at the root of the drive), and my Thunderbird mail, (stored in their standard location, as my whole Windows-profile is on that drive). Everything else i can get again. (Well, not really, i have stuff stored up from 8-10 years back, from people who has withdrawn from t... Read more

Okay, this is the weirdest problem I've ever hard with computers. Here's what happened:

1. I had a few years old Pentium D 2,8GHz processor running on Asus P5VDC-X mobo. PQI 566MHz DDR2 and GF 7600GS 256mb PCI-E, 350W power.
2. I updated the mobo to Asus P5L-MX to support faster PCI-E cards. Everything worked fine, despite the processor ran too hot (58C on high use)
3. Because of the overheating I replaced the thermal paste but it had no effect on the temperature.
4. I thought I used too much paste so I replaced the paste again.
---
5. Bang, no video when I turn on the computer. I tried taking off everything part by part but nothing worked. It didn't work even when I only had processor and used the integrated graphics port. Tried resetting the bios too.
6. Nothing worked so I put back the old P5VDC-X and it worked like charm.
7. I thought it was logical that the problem was caused because of the mobo so I bought a new one, Asrock G31M-S.
8. No video... Did the same steps to this one too. It also had integrated gfx but it didn't work either.
9. The old P5VDC-X still works.

So I have no idea what's causing the problem. Is it the CPU? Mobo? PSU? RAM? I have no speaker on my case so I can't hear any beeps, but it won't start loading the OS from the hardrive and my USB mouse won't turn on. Tried using a differen't monitor too.

The main point is why it stopped working suddenly on new mobo's but still works with the old P5VDC-X? A... Read more

Two new motherboards tells us you made the same simple install error in both of them.
Tell us more about power supply, memory, cable.
Did you make sure the memory was correct for both new boards, and what is the memory on the old board. Would also like to know the power supply and other hard ware.
What happens with the most basic, simple install. Does everything light up?

If you used the same hard drive with the same Windows install on the two motherboards, that is the problem. Windows has detected that you have changed the motherboard and will not operate unless you reinstall Windows on the drive on each new motherboard... One install for each motherboard.
My guess is that you will be fine if you change hard drives or do reinstalls or repair installs of the Windows on the new motherboard.

Vista Ultimate 64-bit, ASUS Rampage Formula motherboard, USB mouse and keyboard connected in back ports.

Two things happened: Avira antivirus warned me of some threats which I either ignored or deleted. Windows Update had some updates ready (although I'm not sure if it updated).

I turned off my PC for a couple of hours, turned it back on and realized that my USB keyboard was not working on the password screen.

I eventually unplugged it from the back and plugged it into the front, where it worked. However, my USB mouse did not work when plugged into the second front port, nor did it work when plugged into the front port in which the keyboard worked.

I accessed System Restore using my keyboard and restored to one day previously. When it finished, both keyboard and mouse worked, although I got a pop-up message alerting me that the "drivers for your device could not be installed." When I clicked "OK," the mouse stopped working again.

I have checked BIOS and both mouse and keyboard are recognized, so it does not appear to be a hardware issue.

My copy of IE 7 just stopped working. Just like that. This precipitated a general reinstall which was a bit overdue anyway but anyone any ideas? Email and FireFox worked (when installed as a temporary fix) without problems.

The reinstall cleared the error but a friend has just called me to say the same has happened to him - might this have been caused by a dodgy windows update?

Well it wouldnt work in her computer, it kept going to a screen that said press F1 to boot and f2 for setup options or something like that. So i figured i would put it back in my computer, and now neither of my hdds work, not the primary or the spare i had. Does anyone know the problem? All i know is the one when its booted has that F1 to boot thing, and the primary hdd i had, when it tries to boot, it says disk read error or something along those lines. Should i just get a new HDD?
 

A:HDD stopped working, help please

Sounds like you didn't install your HDD properly. When you put it in your mother's computer, dud you set it as master? Also, you need to install Windows or clone her old HDD to yours (sometimes you can do this even if the old HDD doesn't boot.)

what's the problem exactly here? and what's the way to solve it , if any?
if not, is there anyway I can extract data from it to another HDD maybe?

the data amounts up to 300GB .

You can try cloning the drive to another with this: http://www.todo-backup.com/download/
If it doesn't work then somehow your drive has been corrupted. If that doesn't work there is one more method, but it is lengthy so post if it doesn't work.

Client keeps getting the IE stopped working message.

We uninstall IE 11 and have IE 10 installed. But it also get the error.

Error log states that there is a error with Kernelbase.dll in C:\Windows\sysywow64
I have seen "Fixes" to remove this file but then there have been postings about it being a system file and NOT to remove it.

Is it safe to delete or rename this kernelbase.dll file?

I see a lot of REGISTRY Cleaners out there that say they will clean up this error, but I do NOT trust the cleaner?
Will CCleaner solve this issue?

Or is there a GOOD SAFE remover for this error?

IE will not stay running but we do have Chrome running. The client is like me he does not want anything but IE for a browser.

A:hl2.exe has stopped working!

I had some problems with steam games too though they were different than yours. Still though you can try this solution that helped me out.

-Go to computer management (you can just type it in the search bar)
-Then on the left side click services and application
-click services
-on the right side list look for something that is called ForceWare Intelligent Application Manager (IAM) and disable it.

My problem was when I started the game everything was studdering. Like I said different problem than yours but worth a shot. Also make sure Nvidia network manager is uninstalled.

If none of that works I would go search and if nothing is found ask on the steam forums.

I seriously do not know how to fix this problem anymore. I tried so many different ways that I feel as if my only hope of this problem to go away is if I get Window 7.

I tried the method I saw on another thread about localnetgroup or something like that.
I tried to put steam as the exception for the DEP
I turned off firewall, and my antivirus system (Which at the time was Norton) but now I use AVG, and the problem remains.
I updated my Nvidia driver so it's up to date.
I tried changing screen resolution. I tried re-installing it. I TRIED EVERYTHING. YET I STILL CAN'T RUN MY 2 FAVORITE GAMES: TF2 AND PORTAL R%&*^*473UIhjg#j

I don't know what to do anymore :[ Halp me guys.

Here is what happens:
When I open steam, I double-click Portal. But it doesn't open. The sign "HL2.exe stopped working" appears. Then vista automatically search for a solution. Then it says "Solution not found, window will not close this application" or something like that.

I can't run Half-Life: Deathmatch either.
However, the strange thing is that when I open Half Life: Lost Coast, it works perfectly. <_< Is my computer on steroids or something :\

A:HL2.EXE stopped working

Right click your Steam icon in the tray.Go to games right click the game / mod you want and right click on it.Go to properties / Set launch options and slap this in there :

-console -novid

You can also try this program that tweaks source mods Half-Life 2: Source Sauce Utility (v2.0), Half-Life 2 Downloads, Half-Life 2 Miscellaneous

Hope that works for you when I 1st started playing TF2 I went crazy......

windows live messenger has stopped working. What does this mean. I have received this with msn and internet broswer 8. is this a common problem
might go back to xp -Should never have said this. Windows 7 is great

Please update your system specs. The link is in my signature. You are going to go back to XP because messenger is acting up? That seems a bit extreme.

Can you log into your Live account from another machine?

Some person I know is a total computer-newbie and they installed DSL yesterday.

It was working fine until today.

In like 10 minutes I'm about to go to their house which is like.. what.. 40 minutes away? They use Windows 2000 Professional (No service packs, since they don't know about it), hmm..
That's about all I know about this.

Some help would be appreciated if at all, since I never used DSL before or know what it is.. I know it stands for Digital Subscriber Line though..

My parents PC is causing some mischief recently. Suddenly their LG CD-RW (bought in about 2002) has decided not to play nice. What happens:

Open tray
Put in disc (audio/data/blank)
Close tray
Drive spins, read light flickers
Tray opens

I can't get it to read/work properly. I flicked through device manager and everything looks normal. Opened up the box and double check all cables (gave everything a bit of a clean while I was in there). Is it just a case of a drive getting old and dying or is there a fix for such a problem?

Thanx for your help in advance!

Ok, so I'm sure this problem has popped up more times than people can count. Anyhow, Team Fortress 2 always shows this message when I try to start it. It never even loads it. Just begins then stops. I've tried everything Steam support said to do. I've tried the security workaround. I've disabled UAC and DEP. I've moved the folder to 'Common' instead of username. I've deleted Steam and reinstalled everything. I've enabled msinfo32.exe. I've repaired WMI. I've done just about everything people have said, and still nothing. Are there any other fixes people have heard about? I just want to play Team Fortress 2 lol.

Hello, I hope someone can help me. I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop 1525 that I purchased only a month ago. My dvd mysteriously and suddenly stopped working. It isn't listed under 'my computer'. In device manager it has an exclamation point and when I click to see what the error is it reads, 'This device cannot start (code 10)' It says 'Could not load driver software.' I have tried to update the driver but it says that it is up to date. I have uninstalled the dvd and reinstalled it but the problem is still there. I have done a system restore to a point that I know it was working but it didn't fix it. The only other thing I can think of is restoring factory settings but I'm hoping I won't have to resort to that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

click here to go to dell support site.
Click downloads
Identify your computer (or you can give it permission by Choose by Tag/Find My Service Tag let it identify your machine
You'll get a page with all drivers for all devices that are a Dell option for that machine
Check the name of the DVD device (per Device Manager) and find this exact device listed among Dell's DVD drivers (they usually sell several different ones, and they all have drivers listed. Make sure you pick right one)
Download the file
Uninstall the old device
Double click on the driver download file and it will do the rest

There is no need to double post your problem. Have you tried running as admin and compatability for windows xp.

Hello, hoping someone can help me with this issue. we were able to get Internet Explorer until this morning when hubby used his laptop to diagnose his work machine. IE was working until he hooked up the modem cable for work into his laptop. and then he shut off the wireless on his laptop(wireless has been restored since). then a window opened up called "network selection", with a few selections. first one was "home", next "work" and then another one that he doesn't remember. After attempting to get to IE he clicked on "home" to see if IE would work and it didn't connect to IE. Now we cannot get to IE at all and each time I try I get this:

"IE has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

Does anyone know how to fix this? I was about to remove Norton Internet Security from his machine and I cannot do so without IE. Please help....thanks much.

(this is an HP Pavillion laptop with Windows Vista)

by the way, I have shut down a couple of times and reopened IE and get the same message. and then it shuts down again. hoping someone has the answer. or, do I need to start another "help me" thread?

So I have been having a few problems with my DVD drive lately I realised the lens was dirty so I cleaned it and it seemed to be working perfectly then. That was before I formatted my laptop. I also pulled it out of my laptop and cleaned the sockets. I plugged it back in and it seemed to be working like normal then.

Now I have formatted my laptop with xp, after I installed what updates I could by editing the register. The drive was working fine after this point. I then installed Ubuntu, thinking that sooner or later I am going to have to make a switch as xp is getting old, and I would like to learn how to use a Linux operating system. And go down this root in the future as they are getting better and better, I think sooner or later games will be supported too and that is probable the only reason I use windows any more par its what I am use too. Anyway off point.

Basically I did a duel install and after I loaded up xp to install a game and finish sorting it out after the format, and I can't use the DVD drive now.

I checked device manager and it doesn't even register the drive, nothing at all shows, no name nothing. I checked the bios, and it shows the DVD drive, I then checked it loaded disks via putting in the xp disk and seeing if I could get to the format menu. It worked fine. So it's something to do with xp, either something to do with the updates not all being installed, but I don't see it being that, I think its something to do with Linux Ubuntu ins... Read more

There's a lot of hits on that error code if you do a google search. Look them over and see what may apply to your situation.

I installed IE10, Tuesday, and except for having to re-enter user name/password on sites I haven't had any problems.

BTW, I use the free "Audiograbber" for ripping CD's. With an MP3 encoder it will rip both wav and MP3's.

When I press the Finish button of the the Windows XP Pro (SP1a) Automatic System Recovery (ASR) Wizard to create a backup file along with the associated diskette, I get the error message:

The files for the recovery diskette could not be created.
The operation was aborted.

This is even before ASR goes through the usual steps of checking which volumes are mounted, creating the list of what's to be backed up, and doing the backup. It's only after the backup is completed that it would ask for the diskette to put the several files on there.

The diskette drive A: is working just fine. The Accessories > System Tools > Backup utility otherwise seems to be working just fine, for example, in creating a backup of the SystemState.

But five days ago I had no problem making an ASR backup set and associated diskette! So something has changed that caused this
different result.

I emphasize that this is with XP Pro, and not Home. And it worked before.

I've found nothing relevant in the Microsoft Knowledge Base -- just one article about the same error with ASR in but that's in XP Home, which doesn't actually support ASR.

I did find one thread in microsoft.public.windowsxp.security_admin about the same error with XP Pro, but the only suggestion there concerned moving the pagefile back to the system drive C:. My pagefile is already on C: and has always been there.

I can tell you this: I had installed Roxio Drag-to-Disk (formerly known as DirectCD) yesterday ... Read more

If you - right click My Computer, go to Properties, click on Hardware tab, click on Device Manager, and in the Device Manager window see if there are any Yellow question marks there saying what drivers are missing this will tell you if the driver is as you suspect has been deleted.
