Is KB3046795 replaced by KB4338815 or KB4338824?

Q: Is KB3046795 replaced by KB4338815 or KB4338824?

KB3046795 is a hotfix for solving W8.1 and WS12R2 reliability problems on skylake or kabylake processors, including only processor drivers (as shown in the file information
section of KB3046795).

Recently, I noticed that the July cumulative update and the security-only update in order to enhance the security of AMD processors have refreshed the processor driver version. The MU Catalog does not mention whether
KB4338815 and
KB4338824 have replaced KB3046795.

I want to know if the processor driver in the July update includes the patching feature in the previous KB3046795.

My monitor goes black and I am forced to reboot. After rebooting I get a blue screen prompt telling me that i've recovered from a BSOD. I've been monitoring them since October.

In October, I RMA'd my graphics card. Oct 27. You can see that after I got a new GPU, my BSOD's halted... so obviously its the GPU right? if you look at my BSOD dumps the last one is OCT 27, new gpu, and i don't get one until Feb 7.

So on Feb 7 I call up eVGA again and say, ok so my GPU is bad again and I wonder if its something im doing to kill them.

So I am going to get a second RMA and the tech tells me that they received my first card and they ran it for over a hour in a diagnostic app and didn't have a single problem... aka my card was fine...

so i explain my BSOD issues and the tech tells me that it may be a voltage issue and that it may be my power supply... soooooooooo

I goto Tiger Direct down the street and buy a "whatever i can get" thats over 1000 watts supply because I have a 850 watt PSU and obviously its not enough power so i go big... and guess what... My last BSOD dump before the PSU is 3/18 March 18. So new PSU and I don't get a single BSOD until 6/14/2014.

So I have attached "All" of my dumps and all my info with the issues.

My problem is... if its "not" my GPU, why did getting a new one give me no BSOD for 3 months.

my problem is... if its "not" my PSU why did getting a new one march 18 let my PC run ti... Read more

A:BSOD 0x116 (stop error) Replaced GPU, replaced RAM, replaced PSU

Hi Zuriel.

I read your OP. I would suggest you to have an open mind; and dont decide that it is not it. Because during troubleshooting you have to get everything tested.

The BSOD is a stop 0x116. That is an error from the part of the display environment. That means ....
The GPU itself
The display driver
The system temps and dust allocation inside the computer
The hardware parts like GPU fans
Overclocking failure
And etc. I would suggest you to go through a thorough troubleshooting, whatever may be the idea you may have about those.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU, 850 watts you said) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

I have an old U530, but with a recent SS upgrade it was running like new, until the orange battery light on the side started quickly flashing.  The moment the power plug is removed, the machine loses all power and is turned off.I have replaced the battery.I have replaced the motherboard.I have tested with other chargers to ensure that was not the source of the problem. The issue remains.  What else could cause this? Software/firmware?  Other smaller PCBs? Any help would be greatly appretiated.

I have a HTII 713 luggable PC that will not power on. When this problem first started, you would hit the power switch and the power would "stutter" but not come on or make it to post. I upgraded the power supply. It originally had a 460W PSU and I upgraded to an Antec 650W PSU hoping that would cure my ills. Still displaying the same symptoms. I got an exact replacement Intel motherboard (Intel DP965LT) and swapped it out.

Now I get power lights, but no fans, or hard drives spinning up. When I hit the power, the case fans and PSU fan will move just a tick but not spin and this only happens the first time I hit the power switch. I have to wait about a minute or so and try again to get this to even do this much. I've triple checked the power connections and mobo connections.

Any ideas?

I had the thread CPU usage @ 10 0%. Although it is marked solved I never did figure out so I tried something else. I bought a faster CPU. Motherboard in computer is AMD AM37 Salsa with a 2000+ CPU and 1048 RAM . After lon, long searching I found that this board would support up to a 3200+ CPU. I ordered a 3000+ CPU and removed original then installed new. Powered up tower, PSU fan started, CPU fan started, but thats all. Floppy did not make normal startup self check and screen power button light changed from yellow to green showing it was getting signal, but all that light up on screen was a small 1/4 inch white blinking rectangle upper right corner. Thinking I might have screwed up new CPU I took it back out and reinstalled original 2000+ CPU and now it won't work either. Same exact problem. The place I bought the 3000+ new CPU checked it and said I did not screw it up. It's OK. Now my question. Is there something I needed to do to the settings, BIOS, or what ever of the motherboard to make the computer recconnize or hard drive reconnize the change in CPU? Acts like motherbord is no working to load up anything.

I have the replacement drive installed, and I turn it on and at the dos screen that lists CPU type, Co-processor and all that, it says Pri Master Disk: None (I'm assuming that means it's not seeing the HD) When I then continue past that trying to boot from the Startup Floppy, the CD will spin really fast and I get the message. "Setup cannot install Win98 on your computer. Your computer does not have a hard disk. Your HD is not functioning properly or HD req special device driver." So I quit the install and the system goes to dos prompt: D:\win98> and I type in fdisk and it says no fixed disk present. Does that give you a clue to what I might have done wrong? Thank you so much for your help. Spike

Awhile back my computer started issuing one long beep instead of booting. Nothing would come on screen, it just beeped.

So I was told that long beeps mean memory errors. I switched out the ram but it did no good. I switched out the video card,motherboard and powersupply for good measure, but the damn thing is still beepiong at me.Considering that the Hard Drive and DVD/DVDRW/Floppy Disk should not affect the boot process at all, I have to assume that it's my processor.

However, I wanted to make sure that there wasn't something I was forgetting before I plop down money for a new processor.Could it be anything else?

This is going to be a little long but any help would be great. I am trying to fix a AMD Duron 650 machine that died a little while back. My brother was on vacation and when he came home is computer was turned off and would not restart. When I opened the case, the heatsink was filled with dust. I used a can of compressed air to remove all of the dust from the case and heatsink. The computer still would not turn on (not a surprise to me). I figured "well, the processor probably couldn't cool thus it overheated (no burn marks on processor)". After purchasing a used Duron 800 chip and plugging it back in (with new thermal grease) I still got nothing. Back to the store and picked up a motherboard. Plugged it all back in and still nothing fan would spin and stop. So, next what's left of course... PSU. I bought a brand new AMD 350w PSU came home and installed it. Reset CMOS, and pushed power, what do I get ... nothing!!!! I think if I can remember right the processor fan would spin but nothing else. No video, no beeps. Now I am thinking that the video card is bad so I take on out of my other computer and get the same result. I did try the old one in the other computer and it worked. So now I assume that the new motherboard was bad. The guy at the store gave me crap about returning it because I told him he sold me a faulty motherboard. So he pulls out all of his testing equipment and he gets the same result I do. So he gives me a different motherboard. I get home ... Read more

I'm hoping someone can help.

My parents have a pretty basic emachines PC. The other day it was switched off for the first time in months! Now it won't power up at all, not even a standby light.

I did a little 'research'. From what I read, I gathered the issue could have been a failed PSU. (I am quite certain that it's not the power cables or socket or anything like that). I bought a new PSU and installed it but still no joy.

Is it likely that the motherboard has been wrecked?

If so, am I right in thinking that it's just aswell to get rid and buy a new PC?

Many thanks for any advice.

I've had my HP Stream Laptop for about a year. About 3 days ago was working on it and instead of shutting it down, I just shut the lid. It was like that for 3 days until now when I turned on my laptop and a strange screen appeared saying something is wrong with my battery and it may need replaced. I know batteries eventually die but I don't use my laptop often, and have only had it for a year. I can only use it when it is plugged in, and it says, "plugged in but not charging". If I un plug it, it immediately shuts off. So I'm just wondering how and why it's like this and how I can fix it?

well. i just really would love to get rid of the celeron, i can't say its a bad processor, I say its highly underated cuz its actually pretty decent. well I still would like a p4 seeing as they are faster and more powerful so can processors be changed? and if they can can my motherboard support a p4, i know my motherboard support ht tech by the way, it said on the manual.

Just a few weeks before its first anniversary, my P50's FHD LCD started showing a yellow color near the bottom of the screen:   This is a known issue with some LCD screens, that occurs when some of the layers separate inside the panel. There's no software solution, of course, and the panel needs to be replaced. I opened a ticket with my IT department and within three days the screen was replaced under warranty. This is the new screen: The phone photos are pretty bad but you get the picture. I couldn't get the manufacturer's names (old and new). Without any adjustments, though, the new screen looks brighter and with better color reproduction, when compared to the same external monitor, than the old one. Which lets me to believe that the old screen was trash. Sad. D.A.V.

Hello. Never even had a chance to get PC online and register and found out my asus mobo was faulty. I did installed OEM W7, however. What consequences, if any, do I know face as a result of swapping out mobo's? (activation wise?) I do plan on wiping the HDD drive and reinstalling windows, unless somebody with experience here recommends "not" to do this. The last thing I want to do, is get this thing up and running, fully loaded with all drivers, programs and the such and then have operating issues because I didn't reformat drive, due to the mobo exchange. Also not sure how MS knows that I changed this device, due to the fact that I was never even online. There is nothing dishonest going on here. Plz advise.

A:OEM W7 and replaced mobo

Technically the OEM license is tied to the machine it is first installed/activated on, and would need to be replaced if the system were changed (and at least according to Microsoft's servers, replacing the motherboard constitutes a new system). However, since you are the owner of the system and this is not royalty OEM (in which case they would have dealt with this via token activation already), you will simply have to call Microsoft to re-activate if it does not do so online, and you will be able to use that license again on the same machine (well, minus the motherboard difference, of course ).

I am about to receive and install an HDD replaced under warranty. I have not a Windows 7 image backup but I think I have somewhat out-of-date datafile backups. (How can I tell the backups are generated by Windows 7). The simple question is do I (try to) restore the data before or after reinstalling the programs.
A supplementary problem. I have full backups using Acronis True Image 11 which I now find is incompatible with Windows 7 mainly because of driver issues. Acronis normally allows the extraction of chosen folders and files. Ideally I would like to extract the emails and email addresses, as well as various other data files.
Any advice most welcome

A:Using restore on replaced HHD

Do you have an Acronis Image backup? It should work using the boot disk to reimage the new HD.

If you have any WD or Seagate HD's attached, you can use their free compatible Acronis premium programs from their Support Downloads webpage. The Manual is here as well.

To restore a Win7 file backup, open the Backup center in your newly installed Win7 with the backup files copied over in place.

A:Would my motherboard need to be replaced on my Len...

First, I must say that I have never taken one of that model apart.  I am just looking at the service manual.  It looks to me that the charging port is soldered to the motherboard, as you were told.  Sometimes, if you look at the port, you can figure out that it is similar to one on another model and if you can find a damaged motherboard with a good port, you can do an "organ transplant".  Very few shops do that kind of repair.  The shop would need to have a good rework station, the port and spend the time to disassemble and reassemble.  The repair might not be cheaper than the motherboard, but I cannot be sure without examining it.  Sorry.

A couple weeks ago my motherboard suddenly stopped working overnight. (I tested all of my other components with another (similar) computer and everything else was working fine.) I just finally got around to replacing the motherboard with an identical one. However, when it boots up it prompts me to select from Safe Mode/Last Known.../Star Windows Normally/etc.. If I choose Start Windows normally, it just freezes and nothing happens. If I choose Last Known Good Configuration, the screen turns all black and nothing happens. And if I choose one of the Safe Mode options, a list of filenames (I think) fill up the screen and then nothing happens.

The computer I used to test my parts also uses the exact same kind of motherboard, and I had no problem using my hard drive with that. Any thoughts? And thank you very much in advance.

A:/ replaced by W with a line through it

I had a hunch that your keyboard language settings might be altered. I had to find out what language the w with a horizontal bar across it was though. I found it here
it's korean! (says it's the "won" symbol, which I think is the currency)
Anyway, go to control panel, regional and language options. Under language, details, set the language to whatever keyboard layout you're using.

My old motherboard stopped working, so while it's getting repaired, I decided to swap it with another one (different model). The problem is, Windows 7 won't boot anymore. I get a blue screen of death and the system keeps rebooting. Now I know replacing a motherboard with an old install is not a good idea, but I really need the files and programs I have on my hard drive. I don't want to do a fresh install either because I'll be putting back my old board once it's repaired. I tried a "automatic repair", but with no success. Am I out of options? The old board is an ASUS M4A78-PLUS and the new one is an ASUS M2N68-AM.

My sister bought a new computer from a company, it was a toshiba C660 something or other. It runs windows 7 home premium 64bit. When it first arrived it constantly BSODed, I tried all I could to diagnose the problem but in the end it seemed that getting a new one sent out would be the safest option. There was only a 3 day return window.

There was a massive hassle even getting them to take it back and wanted a refund, but we were told we would get an upgraded model as replacement. So after about two weeks we finally received the product and it is the exact same laptop. Upgraded does not equal fixed. I took pictures of the serial code etc. However, on turning it on I got the recovery screen i.e., start windows in safe mode, safe mode with network etc. I realised they have probably done nothing to it, and it is definitely the same one.

I checked the event view logs to see if it had been turned on and the last time it had been was the day before it was sent away. I phoned up today and asked for them to collect it and for us to be refunded but was told it says it is fixed on their systems and this means we can't return it a second time. I then went on to explain it has never been turned on. She said it had. I said I have proof it hasn't been. She then said but we replaced the memory so that is why it says it has not been switched on. I explained that the hard drive is where the log files are store and so changing memory has no effect. I could here some "technical... Read more

A:Can you check if RAM has been replaced?

I will post as an uninvolved by stander. I am sorry about the problems that you have encountered and know that everyone has had similiar experiences, if not with computers, with other products.
That being said, they should not lie and possibly they did not. Dont know if the ram is new, but it does not really have to be, but, it has to work properly. Give it a test and then if there is a problem you can complain about that situation

My computer recently stopped wanting to turn on recently so i bought a new power supply but that wasnt the problem. So i did the whole putting the motherboard on top of cardboard and troubleshooting. What happened was i turned the pc on then the 6 pin slots on the graphics card basicly threw sparks and smoke came out so basicly convinced my motherboard was taken out, i tried it without the graphics card. What happens is the cpu fan powers on and stays on running pretty loud. So after i reseated the graphics card but didnt connect the 6 pins and the cpu fan and the gpu fan just runs loudly also without stopping. Now obviously since my graphics card cant even boot up the screen since its broken i want to know if theres a way to find out if anything else is broken or if thats a sign of the motherboard still working fine. What i also saw was when connecting the 6 pin slots on the graphic card the computer wont start the fans on.

My hard drive crashed on my lenovo yoga 2 11, so I purchased a ssd (samsung 850) because others online had good results with that model. Before my hard drive crashed I created a recovery usb. I installed the ssd into the laptop then started it up using the novo button with the usb plugged in.  Pressed the recover your pc button and it runs to about 25% then fails. What did i do wrong, i cannot clone with the old hard drive because that no longer works. Was I suppose to partition it first? How? I had hoped the recovery usb was all I needed. Any suggestions?

My Motherboard is dead and has to be replaced. I believe I will have to re-activate my legitimate XP Pro installation when I install a new motherboard. Is this the case? Do I also have to download service pack 2 again ? Thank you for your advice.

A:Replaced Motherboard

Yes, a new motherboard almost always requires a new activation. Only on a couple of rare occassions did I not have to reactivate.

And with motherboard changes, I usualy had to deal with the automated voice activation first, then go to a live person. It's usually a process that takes less than 5 minutes now.

I just changed the HD in an old PC, a Pentium 2, 333MMX that originally had 6gig HD. I upgraded the ram to 256 recently to speed the thing up, and loaded windows XP. It was working great and running XP no probs at all. It doesn't go online and the kids only use it for games, word, powerpoint etc.

I then decided to upgrade the hard drive for a bigger one. I picked up two used hard-drives from a car boot sale - the guy told us they were both 15 gig. One is a Maxtor 93073U6 (which online research has lead me to believe may actually be 30 gig) and the other is a 10 gig Seagate.

Firstly I tried to install the Maxtor. On initial bootup it listed the Maxtor (so it must have known it was there), and when going into Setup the Maxtor was listed there too. However there was no sign of the actual hard-drive once the computer went through the initial bootup. I tried putting the windows disc in but nothing happened. Could it be there is a problem adding such a large HD to an old machine, or maybe I forgot to do something in the BIOS? Or could it be a jumper setting? We set the jumpers according to the Master setting on this diagram http://www.sunstarco.com/images/dmjumpers.jpg

Secondly I decided to give up on the Maxtor and try installing the Seagate HD instead. Everything seemed to be fine, it loaded immediately and already had windows 98 on it. I decided to upgrade to XP and the beginning of the installation seemed to go fine - near the end of the installation the screen went bl... Read more

Long story short a new computer i was working on was having issues during a fresh instal so i swapped out 2 Raided hard drives i was using for info that i needed. Well little did i know at the time that a RAID cannot be transfered onto another computer and being able to view the data. So i term i think i messed it up (the raid).. I put the hard drives back into the original system and i had to delete the raid due to an error. Now all my info is still on the raids. If i create a new one it tells me that all info on the hard drives will be lost.
My question is can i put a raid back on the hard drives with out losing the info?

A:Can a Raid be replaced?!?

Would it operate as a slave on the main ide cable? It's the same machine, though I think the machine sees it as a scsi device and has to be on the raid line. If thats the case can you put it in another machine with raid? Unless it looks for other id's.

And now it just prints the same photo, nothing else. I replaced the ink cartridges in my Epson 3 in 1 Stylus CX5400. Then I uninstalled everything I could find about the printer. Then I reinstalled everything with the new ink cartridges. I looked for drivers and installed all I could find. This Epson has a "smart panel" to do pre-programmed chores. It won't even copy a single word written on white paper, it won't copy anything. The only thing it will do is print one photo in mainly a green color. Thanks for listening. Please help, I've tried for weeks. Bill

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop. This last weekend I started it up as usual and when it was done booting up I noticed that it was running from the battery. Thinking that a/c cord was unplugged I reached around to check it out. However the a/c cord was plugged in. I did notice though that it was wobbly. I unplugged it and plugged it back in several times and it kept running off of the battery. So I called the Dell tech support and after telling them all of this they determined the motherboard was bad so they are sending the parts and a tech person to my house to fix it. I have two questions though.

1) Why does the whole motherboard need to be replaced?

2)Will I lose anything on my harddrive, or do I need to do anything while I have some battery left so that I don't lose anything?
Thanks for the help.

Hello, I hope someone can help me with this ,

I seem to have a problem with on or two drivers.

Can I de-install and replace them ( or it, if it is only one driver ) or will this stop my PC from functioning ?

I know that I can do this by going into the Device Manager, but I know also that there are some drivers that cannot be just reinstalled like that.

Thanks for any help with this issue

A:Drivers need to be replaced

Hello Thelma it depends on what drivers you intend to replace and I for one am not a fan of the Windows feature far better off using the manufacturer's site for them. In general (I find) the drivers when downloaded and installed will auto remove the old one and replace it with the new.
You can of course uninstall the driver in the Control Panel and that it is what I do but I always save drivers to Downloads (I keep that on my desktop) first and it is then simple matter of installing from there if you go wrong they are available for a second try.
As a matter of course I tend to keep most of the drivers for a machine in Downloads ready for use

To get Downloads on the desktop if you are so inclined - Start > type Downloads > right click send to desktop.
