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.

I have XP SP2. I bought an iPod and everything was working OK until one time when I plugged in the iPod, the computer suddenly blocked. I turned off the computer and unplugged the iPod from the front port. After I turned the computer on, none of the USB ports were working. In the device manager, everything was working fine. I tried to reinstall the drivers, but nothing improved.

Can anyone offer any help? Could it be that I just burned the ports after I unplugged the iPod (but the computer was already turned off) ?

THanks for any help whatsoever. I know a little about PC, so you can get into more details if you want.

Thanks again.

go back into device manager, and look at the Universal serial bus controllers section. right click on each entry under that and select uninstall, unless it's like a USB camera, sometimes those show up. Get all the USB hubs and controllers though.
reboot, let windows detect and install the drivers for them. reboot again.

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.

My DVD burner has stopped working all of a sudden - it's still recognized as a drive (Device Manager says the device is working properly, no exclamation points indicating otherwise) and open/closes properly, yet:

a) All of my burning software either says there's no device or "please insert a blank disc" when there is already one in there; and
b) When I click on the drive in My Computer, it opens up to a blank folder (as opposed to the other CD drive that says "please insert a disc", etc.

I've read this forum and others and followed all the directions that seemed to work for everyone else (go into the registry and delete the UpperFilter and LowerFilter, and uninstall the drive as well as update the drivers) but everything is still the same - the device seems to be perfectly fine but it's not recognizing any discs I put in there (blank or otherwise).

Check the cables. Try unplugging and replugging to make sure they are connected on both ends. Is there anything else on that cable?

Try removing it from Device Manager and rebooting so it will be reinstalled.

Have you installed any new DVD-ROM related software or burning software lately?

It could simply be burned out. Those drives don't seem to last very long any more.

My computer was making incredibly loud noises. I have 2 desktops and a laptop. Both the laptop and one of the older desktops I used for typing/printing only started making noises. Since the laptop is new I fixed it immediately (bought the warranty and everything). Now the older PC, I tried fixing it myself. I cleaned the fan. And it actually started working again. But now, a week after the cleaning the fan doesn't work at all. The computer has been on for 3 days and it's still working. Just out of curiosity, how long can a computer last before it dies without a CPU fan?

I'm going to buy one today though. Is it enough if I just tell them the stuff that's written on the CPU fan (CPU COOLER - DC 12V / 0.09 A - PL 50S12M) or do I have to measure it? It's around 2.5" long I think. Maybe even less. I'd appreciate any help.

update: OK for no reason whatsoever my fan seemed to have started spinning now. The only difference I noticed is the room temperature. When it wasn't spinning the room was very cold (open window all night). Now it's warmer by at least 7C and it started working for no reason. Does the room temp have anything to do with it?
 

A:Fan stopped working

hi lost and welcome to Techspot

you obviously have an Intel because an AMD system would have shut down if the fan stopped spinning (due the the CPU overheating)

however, certain Intel systems (i'm not sure if some or all) will slow down to a crawl but will still remain on. If the fan stops spinning the HSF turns into a passive cooler, the CPU will downclock itself so that it will not overheat.

as far as what HSF you need to buy to replace it. if you're only going to replace the fan itself (which i dont recommend) then you can pretty much replace it with any 3wired 12v fan of the same size. if your going to replace thewhole HFS unit (which is what you should do) then you need to know the CPU and socket type so that it attaches correctly

Hi

I play a lot of BF3.

Win 7 had no problems.

But on Win8 I get a lot of bf3.exe have stopped working.

Wonder if its a Win or game problem?

A:BF3.exe have stopped working

I have had the same issue with every Windows 8 release, even now with the RTM. I think it must be driver related

It is also possible that it is a Punkbuster problem. They said that they will have full support for Windows 8 ready on the release day

please help. I was able to view PDF files before on my laptop, now i cannot view any. I have uninstalled and installed Adobe several times and cannot get it to work properly.
 

A:Get+ (R) has stopped working

Download and install Foxit PDF Reader 3.3.1.0518 and use it instead.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Uninstall Adobe Reader, then go into the C:\Program Files\Adobe folder and delete its leftover folder - if it's still there.

If you don't have folders present for any other Adobe programs, you can delete the entire Adobe folder.

Well, my moms hdd went to hell for whatever reason, so i figured that since i had 2 HDDs in my computer, that i would take the spare one i had (never use it) and let her use it. 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.)

Hi,

I have Windows XP Pro and IE 6.0.2600.
This setup was working before but now
I am not able to load any webpages.
Here is the message I get if I go to
any website. I have tried to follow the
instructions in the message but to no
avail. Any suggestions/help would be
appreciated.

At the bottom of the message it says
"Cannot find server or DNS error".
I was able to manually ping from the
command prompt and then use this
address in my browser and then it worked.
However, I don't know why the browser
no longer talks to the DNS directly.

Thanks

Hi,

There appears to be quite a few hits for this file as being associated with a malware infection. Java is often used as a vehicle for malware delivery, so I think its best to scan your system for malware.

Please perform an online scan using this link, and then post the results back here:

This way we can rule this out.

I have win 7 64 bit, 6 gig ram, dual core 3 GHz Dell OptiPlex 745. I have 2 similar problems with IE11.
1. Using Bing and looking at the video thumbnails when previews start I have a 50/50 chance of getting "IE has stopped working. Then it tries to solve the problem. Then it says to close IE. I click OK, the same page comes back with the same thumbnails of videos that I can preview.

2. Some sites when I go to them and a video starts I get message" IE has stopped working". It then tries to find the problem and tells me when they know how to fix the problem they will let me know. It tells me to close the page I do and the same page re-appears and the video works. I have tried adding the site to the compatibility setting but to no avail.

A:IE 11 has stopped working.

Start>Search>Uninstall or change program>Bing Bar>Uninstall. I've found that this add-on causes some problems. If you want to test before removing, run IE sans add-ons.

First off,hello and thank you for your time.

Almost all of my games I try to play keep crashing into " .exe stopped working". I can run them, but about 10 minute mark (most of the time even sooner), they just crash and say that. I tried reinstalling them, different games and almost all of them do that. In some cases I just get to the menu and when I start playing they just drop. Even those that didn't do that before, I have been playing them for about a hour for example and now I can't do that. I just don't know what to do.

Thanks for any advice.

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.

Some games such as BF2142 and Oblivion will close down and pop up a " ... has stopped working" error for (it seems) no reason at all.
I don't see what could have caused this.

Any help on fixes?

A:... Has Stopped Working

Check your Event Viewer for errors. A lot of game errors are caused by corrupted video drivers, try reinstalling them to see if it fixes the problem (didn't fix my problem w/Halo 2 tho').
