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.

I no longer want to see this error message.I use ACDC 7 for viewing and editing graphic files, here with this Windows 7 (64) system.

I usually select files with Windows Explorer, and they open using ACDC.

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.

Running a Win2000 machine - following a Memory Dump, my network card quit.
Installed a new card, reloaded drivers and ran RegClean. My network card came back OK - email and HTTP working fine but I cannot FTP to any of the sites I maintain. As soon as I try to connect I get a connection refused on Port 21. I normally use AceFTP but I've also tried SmartFTP and others and get the same result. With the free ftpcomm program I can get to the remote site and download a file but cannot upload back to the site. I tried a command line FTP and tried to send a "bin" file with hash marks set and got a connection refused there as well. RegClean does show some FTP entries such as: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\sfFTPLib.FTPConnectionInfo\CLSID]@="{FBF8CDD4-BDD5-4B31-8890-AAC1DAB97BB4}"

I'm afraid if I reverse the RegClean work that I might lose the network capability altogether again.

Any ideas (please)??

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...

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

I've been seeing IE has stopped working more and more frequently. Today I've seen it twice. Other than changing default browsers or going back to version 8, can anything be done to fix IE9 so it will stop closing?

A:IE 9 Has Stopped Working

Hi Duchess,

My name is Mekh and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. Other than the two options you have mentioned, one other way is to Restore IE to Default Settings.
Check the below KB article how how to reset IE.

Hope this helps.

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.
 

A:USB stopped working

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.

I'm not sure if this is the right board to post this at.

I recently configured a router for home use using my emachines laptop (model D642). After I finished setting it up, I noticed that my Wi-fi stopped working altogether. When I open the Wi-fi launch manager, it shows a greyed out wi-fi switch which cannot be selected. Now, I can only connect to the net by connecting the laptop to the router via cable. Has anyone experienced the same thing before? What can I do to fix this, without formatting my laptop in the long run?

Hey there,

About a week ago I was plugging in my speakers to the front jack on my computer when a Windows message (the one that comes from the clock area) saying one of my USB Ports had a power surge. I also noticed that my USB Optical Mouse's light was no longer on.
Also, at this time, my computer stopped recognizing my 2nd hard drive.
First, what could have caused this power surge? Static build up on the speaker jack? I'm pretty curious about that.

I noticed in my BIOS that when I highlighted the 2nd HDD spot, half the screen turned red, so, i assumed it was a little corrupted. I popped out the CMOS battery and let it sit for a few minutes and voila, my HDD worked again.

However, None of my 8 USB ports (all on the mother board controller) work.
I checked settings in the BIOS, I uninstalled and reinstalled the usb hubs in windows. I bought a PCI USB card, with 5 usb ports on it, and none of those work either. I just got done upgrading my BIOS, but they still don't work.

I have tried a new mouse, and it powers up (glow light and laser turn on), but windows doesn't recognize that anything is connected (nor does ubuntu, for that matter). In Device manager, it says the hubs are working normally.

Also, I've noticed since the incident that when I boot into windows, the time in between the "windows is loading" screen with the scroller, and the Welcome Screen with the login window is about 3-4 minutes of blackness, where it used to be 2-3 seconds. I d... Read more

When I try to play an *.mpg file in Win Media Player I get a small message at the bottom of the screen saying that it is trying to locate a codec server. If I am off line at the time then that is the end of it, but of course the *.mpg file never plays. If I am on line it seems to find some sort of site, then the word ""Error"" flashes by and the file begins, but it is only sound.........no picture at all.
This just occured a few minutes ago........(rebooting didn't help) prior to that, I had no trouble playing these files.

Hello Forum, I have bought a Lenovo Z50-75 in january 2015, and since last 2 weeks it seems the fan is not working, since the laptop is overheating  (up to around 95 C before it shuts down).I've installed Speedfan to check the temperatures, but speedfan can not find the fan.  There is also no airflow coming from the side.2 days ago i opened my laptop, because it seemed like the speakers were torn. When i opened it and checked them, there were a load of tiny balls magnetically attached to the speakers, which has led me to think they could be the ball bearings from the fan. Does that make any sense? Im trying to find out if it's the fan itself, or if it is a software / mobo problem. I've updated my BIOS to the latest version, and downloaded the Lenovo Solution Center, but without any luck. Is anyone familiair with this problem, or does anyone have some ideas what else I might try? Kind regards,Robbert

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 there, i've looked everywhere online for a similar error, but to be honest I am unsure of what I am looking for, so I have decided to post on here.

Everytime I try to open a file or program - mostly Internet Explorer, I keep getting an error message that says:
'ave. exe has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.' Basically it won't let me open anything unless I run as administrator.

Now about 2 months ago my computer was hit with that fake security virus, which goes by the name av.exe. I managed to get rid of that by messing around in the registry. I'm not sure if this is a variant of the av.exe virus as i've not had any fake security pop-ups like I did last time, so i'm not entirely sure what I should be removing from my computer, or if this could just be a problem with vista.

Any suggestions or help on how I could get rid of this problem?
Cheers!

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.

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.
