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.

So one day I was using a laptop wirelessly when the internet just suddenly turned off. I checked my modem and it was working fine but when I checked my router, the lights were on but not blinking. it was just a steady light. when I checked for a wireless network the name of the network I usually use didnt show up.

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.

Last week I was experimenting with ripping dvds and it was working great. However, after ripping 2 or 3 dvd's onto my backup hardrive it stopped working. It said that I needed to have a dvd player open in order to get through the encrypted dvd...so I though okay no problem, I'll just use NVDVD player like I always have. But now a message pops up telling me that the disk is encrypted and must be opened using a dvd player...even though NVDVD is just that, a dvd player. Now I have tried 3 other dvd players and none of them work. I thought maybe I lost some codecs so I downloaded the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. This did nothing for dvds. So any idea what I'm missing ??? I plan to reformat soon, so I guess this would just be another reason to do that. Thanks!

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.

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?

I have an Optiplex 170L tower with a 2007FP display, running XP SP3.  (Yeah, yeah, I know ...)
I have always had the USB hub on the display connected to the tower to make using flash drives easier, since the tower sits on the floor at my desk.  Suddenly, Windows has stopped activating the hub.  Even worse, it thinks the hub is "new hardware" but refuses to reinstall it.  That damned "new hardware wizard" thinks it is a "USB Device" rather than a root hub and even manually pointing it at the folder where USBHUB.SYS is located doesn't work ("this location does not have information on your device").
I know the driver isn't corrupted because it runs for all the other USB root hubs on the tower.
I also already tried the trick of uninstalling all the root hub drivers (except for the one that has my keyboard and trackball connected to it) and rebooting.  All the USB hubs on the tower get reinstalled as "new hardware" and then the wizard can't find the driver for the hub on the display.
The only thing I could think of is that maybe Windows wants an .INF file specific to the display hub (although why it didn't before is a mystery) but I don't think such a file exists, nor am I well-versed in creating those.
Any and all ideas are welcome ... this is becoming maddening.

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.

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?

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). Any suggestions you could provide will be greatly appreciated!
 

A:DVD RW Has Stopped Working

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.

Hey All

The other day everything was running perfect, i took a phone call and when I came back my mouse wasnt working. Ok, so i rebooted. Still nothing, so I switched to another USB port, still nothing, then i tried my USB memory stick even that wouldn't recognize. So i tried all of my USB ports and still nothing.

Since then i have tried

- restoring to a few days ago
- took the whole rig apart
- tried a new PSU
- reset my CMOS
- took my battery out of my MB for 12 hours

thats a bi**H. I can help you with the unknown device. if you go into device manager and right click the unknown go to properties>details>use the pull down to show hardware id's take the id string and drop it into google. It will tell you what the device is. hardware ID's are unique

Let us know if that doesnt help

Hi. I am running windows vista and recently my internal CD/DVD burner stopped working. In fact, it doesn't even register in 'computer'.
I decided to purchase a new burner but found that my computer is not set up for SATA connection.
So decided to purchase a portable external burner. I plugged it in and it began to set itself up but then the following message appeared.....

Device driver software not successfully installed

Please consult with your device manufacturer for assistance getting this device installed.

I have run out of ideas as to what has gone wrong so would appreciate any help with this issue folks.

Thanks in advance, Peterm52

I'm guessing you have a desktop that's several years old and has IDE ribbon cables for its drives.

What's the brand name and model name and model number of that computer?

My CD-Rom has stopped working. I was listening to an audio book on Windows Media Player when it froze up right in the middle of a track. I closed WMP and re-opened it. It said to insert a disc. I rebooted my computer, it still did not acknowledge there is a disc in the drive. I've tried several different discs, and different types. My Computer does not acknowledge them either.

I then tried uninstalling and re-installing the driver. Still does not acknowledge there is a disc in the drive, but the troubleshooter still continues to tell me the drive is working properly. It is spinning when I put in a new disc, but says there isn't one there. I'm stuck. What else can I try? Isn't it odd that it would stop working while I was listening to it??

Drive is HL-DT-ST CD-ROM GCR-8481B

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..

if they are using a router reset it if just a modem reset it if no reset button on the modem pull the power plug to reset and reboot the computer

You're not using any Symantec (norton) products are you?

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)

A:GTA V has stopped working

You can try right clicking the game launcher and select "Troubleshoot Compatibility" it may be able to fix any issues.

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.)

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?
 

A:Wi-fi Stopped Working

Ummmmm! Click:
Start
Right click computer
Select manage
Click Device manager
Click network adapters
Double click the wireless card, then check out the settings and see what it says, if all settings enabled, Hav'nt got a clue!

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.
HELP

Thanks
