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 tried unplugging everything and plugging everything back in again and I tried pressing the reset button on the back of the router. Can anyone help?

Thanks so much

P.S. my router is a linksys WRT300N Wireless-N Broadband router
 

A:Wireless router suddenly stopped working (Lights still working though)

what devices do you have connected the router anything else wireless

does the PC work if you connect to the router by a cable ?

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 listedACDC because after it completes normally each time, there is an error message that says "Application has stopped working." 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.

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

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.

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.

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)

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.
Internet Explorer - Reset

Hope this helps.

I purchased a new Sony laptop a few weeks ago & noticed that a few sites I regularly visit cannot connect to IE. A box pops up & reads: Internet Explorer stopped working. Tech support at Sony had me re-install the entire system. At first, the problem was still there, then cleared up the next day. All internet access was fine except for those 2 sites. Now, the problem happens with 2 other sites again. What's going on ??

Thanx

Welcome to TSF

Try running without Add/Ons to see if it happens. Also clear the cache.

Hi, I have a basic knowledge of computers but have no clue how to deal with this issue. Im', using IE 7; Vista. I started IE and an error message popped up saying, "Internet Explorer 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." In the meantime, once the browser opened, I just stumbled upon the "In Private Browsing" option and very quickly clicked on it. THIS has allowed me to get on the web! However, if I click on my IE icon and don't go into In Private, the above error message appears and the browser closes. What to do???? Anyone???

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.

I have an HP Pavilion 3100 and a few weeks ago the cd rom stopped working. I was advised that possibly something had wiggled loose and I took the computer apart to check the connections. Couldn't find anything that seemed loose but I'm not really sure just what I was looking for either! When I put a cd in, I get the same message each time: "device is not ready". I've checked to make sure the computer knows it is there and it does but I just can't get it to work. Any suggestions will be helpful and appreciated - I'm not too sure about how to do a lot of things so please explain them as plainly as possible. Thank you so much for being there to help!!!
 

A:CD Rom stopped working

Take a look in the Control Panel>Device Manager for any yellow ! or red error indicators under CD-rom. If found, expand the line for the drive and post back any error messages found. You could try to select the dirve and then the Remove button, reboot and let Windows find the drive and install it again. You could try a cd cleaner. Unfortunately drives do just go bad.

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

I built my rig a couple years ago and last night it suddenly screeched to a halt.

I'm not an expert so I'm not sure what is wrong, here is what is happening.

Everything seems to be still running...All fans are running....Hard drive is spinning....However there is no video output at all. The light on my tower also shows that the hard drive isn't reading/writing.

Thanks in advance,

My SAMSUNG SD-616E DVD ROM didn't work last night when I went to play a movie. It worked before. I'm using a DELL Dimension 4600 P4 3 GHz with 1G RAM - Windows XP.

Symptom: I put in the DVD, close the tray, the LED flashes 7 times, goes out and nothing happens. When I select "DVD DRIVE D" at Windows Explorer, the popup says, "Please insert a disk into drive D:" The movie works in the DVD player that's hooked up to my TV so I know the disk is OK. I tried other movie DVDs in my DVD ROM. None work. In fact, no CD works in that drive. The drive just doesn't recognize that there's a disk in there.

No indications at the Device Manager that there's a problem.

I went to the SAMSUNG website to download a new driver - to see if that would help. Apparently they don't support that model anymore.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can suggest a remedy.

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'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?

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.
 

A:HDD stopped working

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.

New behavior on new Vista HP 64bit installation. Was working fine 4 days ago; had been shut down until last evening. Have installed minimum additional apps, all reportedly 64bit compliant.
IE 8 message when starting IE - "Last browsing session closed unexpectedly, Restore previous session or open homepage?" Either choice results in "IE has stopped working, Windows checking for solution"... "A problem caused IE to close, Windows will close program and notify you if solution". IE closes, no solution found. Have tried disabling add-ons, have reset IE settings to default, have disabled McAfee internet security. Have run antivirus scans, malware scans (all clean), my System Restore points were (unknowingly) turned off so my most recent restore point is from last evening, AFTER the problem began. What next? I'm at the point where I COULD run clean install of Vista HP.

before you nuke this OS why not try a system file check. it verifies and reapir system files. you run it by start>search>type cmd> right click run as admin>type sfc /scannow

I have window XP service pack 3, this is what happened, I was trying to delete game files from a download folder when I received the infamous Blue Screen of Death, it told me Window encountered an error. I pressed the reset button and my computer booted, the it went to window loading screen but wont go any further. I have a feeling I may have to reinstall window but my question is, what may have caused this to happen, its not the first time it happens and I wondered what could I do to prevent this from happening again.

You're not using any Symantec (norton) products are you?
They have been causing problems for some.

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?

OK, I have just noticed that my del key no longer works, and i don't know why. I remember it working a couple days ago, but now it doesn't.

I thought it may be a keyboard issue (I have a logitech wireless keyboard & mouse) but reading the forums, another user suggested trying the on-screen keyboard to check.

I checked using the OSK, and the del key doesnt work on that either.. so I don't believe it is a keyboard or keyboard software issue..

Would anyone have any suggestions? It is not the end of the world, but it is rather annoying.. you don't realise how often you use it for things until you don't have it.

NOTE.. I restarted windows, and discovered that the Delete key DOES work at the initial login screen, but once windows has fully loaded up, it stops working.. not sure how that is relevant, but am sure it is.

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.
