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.

Hi people.

Has anyone been able to get GTA V working on Windows 10? (Pro x64) As soon as I launch it I get the "NSanityHD has signed in." at the Social Club launcher and then just as it attempts to launch the game it crashes. I've been trying to figure this out for the past few days since I upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate. (3 days ago) I've tried to update my Radeon R9 280X drivers as well. The game was working fine on Windows 7. (???)

Also C&C Red Alert 2 AND Battlefield 3 just refuses to launch. The only game I've been able to play without issues is Counter-Strike: Source. I've tried to verify the integrity of the game files using a shortcut with the "-verify" parameter with no luck. (GTA V is the Social Club/Rockstar Games version, not the Steam one)

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

Hey guys, I've had this issue since far before i upgraded to Win10 so my upgrade has nothing to do with this as for I have had it since windows 7. As said by the title I get the annoying message of DWM.exe has stopped working every time i switch to the desktop or any explorer.exe. I have done sfc scannow and chdsk, which solved problems but not the dwm.exe one. This leads me to believe that this has to do with a graphics driver problem; however all of my drivers are up to date (display, graphics, latest AMD catalyst etc...) So I need your help!

I have a Dell Dimension 8200 running Windows xp Service Pack 3 with a 2519 mhz processor. I have been using Firefox to connect to the Internet but noticed that my Windows Media Player 11 wasn't playing a basic Internet file from my business, so I tried to connect to the Internet with IE8, which was available on my system.

I received an error message that I couldn't connect to HTTP, HTTPS and FTP files. This wasn't the case because I was able to connect to those files with Firefox. I then rebooted my router and received the same error message with IE8.

I then reinstalled IE8 but got the same error message. I reinstalled it again and still got the same error message.

I don't understand why IE8 wouldn't work after being reinstalled twice. What I did to resolve the problem was use System Restore to bring the computer back to a previous restore point and that allowed IE8 to function. I suspected a virus but when I checked with my verizon security suite, there were no viruses or spyware on my system, which is working in real time.

While I have gotten IE8 back to functioning, I'm wondering why I couldn't solve this problem by simply reinstalling IE8?

Thanks for your feedback,

Mark
 

A:IE8 stopped working

I'm thinking by rolling the system back to a previous restore point, you also rolled back some other setting that was blocking IE from connecting to the Internet.

Is the Verizon Security Suite McAfee Internet Security or Norton Internet Security? Does it have its own firewall or are you using the Windows firewall?

Peace...

Need help here,

I've installed Win XP pro with no service packs onto a machine that had Win XP home SP2 (because they lost the recovery disks), now none of the usb 2.0 ports work. I remembered that SP2 has the drivers for usb 2.0 after I'd installed it. Can't download SP2 either.

Tried updating the USB driver and am told i'm missing file usbehci.sys

Looked everywhere on the net for it and ended up in survey hungry sites that that don't deliver drivers as promised.

Any ideas???

My CD Rom wont read the disk any disk , you can hear it trying, then stops , when I go to MY COMPUTER and click the E drive it tells me to insert a disk and opens, what would the problem be? it just started from out of nowhere.
I did this:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]
"UpperFilters"=-
"LowerFilters"=-

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdr4_2K]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdralw2k]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdudf]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UdfReadr]

Also Downloaded a PC fixer and ran it , still no go...

Have you tried blowing the dust out of it?

Did you actually delete the entire upper and lower filters registry key or just the value? You need to delete the entire key...see link below.

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').

So I've been at college and haven't used my playstation 2 in awhile and I just tried to use it today. It worked fine for about a half hour then it froze so I restarted it. Once I tried to start playing again it wouldn't get past the Playstation 2 logo, then it just has a black screen and won't do anything. I tried other games and the same thing happens. Does anyone happen to know a fix for this? Please?

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......

One day my usb mouse stopped working on the right side of the laptop. I unplugged and and tried to replug it but the port felt different on both the right side USB ports. They weren't as springy as they used to be and nothing worked when plugged in but the left side USB ports felt normal and still worked. What would cause two USB ports to stop working and feel so different all of a sudden

hey i have a Sony that i reformatted a week ago. after that i kept it in my room for a couple of days because i was busy with other work. then on Thursday i finally got to turn it on and take a look at it after the reformatting.

but when i turned it on it gives me a message saying the "the hardware monitor has detected an error with the POWER SUPPLY FAN" then it says press F1 to continue or press F2 to go to setup.(BIOS)

so then i hit F2 and it got me to the BIOS setup and i went to "POWER" and then to "Hardware Monitor" then it gave me the following..

MB Temp. 34 degrees C/ 93 degrees F
CPU Temp 60 degrees C/ 140 degrees F

CPU Fan Speed 3515 RPM.
Power Fan Speed 0 RPM.

OK so thats bad because it's not working and it 0, what should i do?, i mean my computer works fine if i press F1 to continue it gets me to the desktop and then it works from there but i don't think its good.

are my temperatures OK for the CPU that i showed ,and for the MB?
or is the temperature really high?

should i buy a new Power Supply Fan? because those cost a lot.

I have an Alienware laptop. The DVD+RW drive worked fine for about a year. All of a sudden it has stopped working, of course as soon as the warrenty was over. It acts like there is wrightable media in the drive at all times. It does not matter if the drive is empty or have a CD or DVD in it.
The drive is a N DVDRW SDW-042, firmware version D360. I have updated anti-virus, scanned all drives, and done spy ware scans. I have used two different anti-virus programs to help ensure that all virus were found. The way the laptop is set-up, to use my second hard drive I must remove the DVD drive. When the second hard drive is installed it works just fine. With this in mind, I am assuming that the rest of the hardware is fine.

Hi,
I have adata superior SH93 500GB external HDD and I was transferring data to it few hours ago when it suddenly stopped working. I got this error everytime I try to open the drive "<>:\ is not accessible . The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."

I tried reconnecting , restarting PC , different USB ports and different cables . I got this error when the HDD got connected
"you need to format disc in drive <> before you can use it."

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 .

Thank you.

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.

Try opening the IE without the addons.
Start->programs-.accessories->System tools->IE(No addons).
If it works fine then removed all the addons.

I have a brand new toshiba laptop model satellite P605-s8823.it 200gb hhd and 3 gig sdram amd turion x2duall core mobile processor rm-70. i dont know if any of that is relevent, but i keep getting this box popping up that says "En-us has stopped working" I havno idea what it is or what it means.Please help. and sorry for anytypig errors and spacing errors my space key dosent work very well.
 

A:En-us has stopped working

From the web, this message appears to be related to a program that is running at startup called, TOSCDSPD.exe.

"CD/DVD Drive Acoustic Silencer
From CastleCopsWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Software supplied by Toshiba to acoustically silence noise vibration from the laptop's CD player due to poorly balanced CD's. The program slows the CD player to reduce the vibration generated noise.

The program may be run all the time, or started when needed. The program runs automatically at startup in the default installation from Toshiba"

More info on it

I'm not sure what would cause the message, but the program is considered non essential.

You can stop it from running by doing
Start > Run > MSCONFIG
and UNselecting the entry for that app.
(most likely looks like C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\TOSCDSPD\TOSCDSPD.EXE)

Reboot. You will get a warning screen about making the change. Select the Don't Show Me Again option.

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
