I had an MS Word 2007 file on my system. I had it opened for a couple days, and during this time, Windows decided to FORCE a restart of my system (beautiful idea to default to this behavior, btw), and while doing so completely lost (how?) my saved copy of the aforementioned file.
This file is quite important to me, and I have tried to recover it by many different means thus far, to no avail. Included:
1) Use of at least six different "data recovery" applications. No luck.
2) Followed instructions of every single "recover lost word files" URL on the internet. No luck.
3) Searched raw disk data for recognizable text. No luck.
4) Repaired target HDD via CHKDSK in hopes of recovery of lost data and/or file handles. No luck.
5) Etc., etc., etc.
Here is some miscellaneous info:
a) The temporary hidden file MS Word creates upon opening a document (prefixed with "~$") remains. This is proof that this file was in fact saved before the disastrous decision by MS to reboot my system without my consent. However, this file merely contains user data.
b) I had previously modified and saved the text of this file several times over several days, as well as copy/pasted it a few times just previous to the loss of data. The hard drive where it resided was 500GB in size. The text (or at least segments of it) is likely to still exist somewhere on this disk. During my fruitless searches for lost files using 3rd party applications, I encountered nearly everything I've ever written on that drive in the past two years, and in particular a group of items that I wrote at around the same time. This is another reason to suspect that significant amounts of the lost data I'm looking for are likely to be on the disk somewhere.
c) Given that none of the 3rd party apps could find any part of the file in question, and in light of whatever EXACTLY occurred during the forced restart that would result in a saved file being dropped simply because it was open at the time of shutdown, it might be safe to say that I will not find it via any search (no matter how exhaustive) that relies upon the file system itself. However, given that MS Word encodes and encrypts documents by default it is not a simple matter to find the data via a scan of the drive for raw data (what do you search for?).
*** SO, IN SUMMARY ***
I am somewhat confident that at least some of the missing data is in fact on this disk. Given the facts above, I am at an impasse as to how I might retrieve any of it. Any advanced advice or suggestionsto help resolve this episode (and/or explain exactly what likely occurred) would be greatly appreciated!
NOTE: please do not ask irrelevant questions - e.g., "why was the file not backed up?"




i apologize in advance for this is a bit involved. on 8/21/2012 i installed a new program for cleaning the comp. it had good reviews from people i trust. i set it up, ran it, and after cleaning the free space on c it froze. the only thing i had was the mouse. i pressed restart and just after getting the windows logo i got a bsod telling me my boot.ini was corrupt. i tried three more times and got the same thing. i could not get startup repair to run, so i put in a partition wizard boot disk and booted into ipartition wizard. i made a new partition on one of my other drives so i could install windows on it because i knew most likely it would fix the boot.ini of the old windows. well it worked and i was able to get into my old windows, but it had been rolled back just over twelve months. i updated firefox back to 15.01 and use mosbackup to restore my settings, addons, and bookmarks. i have never had a problem with mozbackup so i'm pretty sure it's not a issue with the backup file.

MozBackup - Backup tool for Firefox and Thunderbird

however whenever i launch firefox i get the following error messages. the first one pops up without the browser window opening, click o.k. and it pops up the second one, click o.k. and the browser window opens then the third one pops up. i have jave 7 update 6 in so i have no idea why i'm getting the errors. any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

This part is never easy... I write this post in a saddened tone, if a tone could be added to words typed in a word processor. My main system, housing most of my support utilities, files, information, music, games, pictures, and all sorts of fantastic things is on its death bed. Prognosis: Hard drive cleared; CPU fan dead

According to Murphy’s Law, “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”, and this certainly applies to this system. Built with the highest quality parts and assembled with the greatest diligence, the Achilles heel of this system was its creator. A vow made never to buy new parts for 10 years is now broken.

An unlocked Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition with a $20 heatsink/fan. A dead fan. It had been dying for weeks. And finally, after I realized my Windows Side-by-Side manifest had been corrupted due to power failures associated with the failure of my UPS system several months ago, this was the nail in the coffin.

Ironically, in a video I had made, showcasing the diagnostic utilities one can use to identify the hardware and software of their system, and relay it to others, I noticed something while making this video. My CPU was idling at 70/80C. I was so busy doing other things, creating graphics, responding to messages, checking service packs, installing virtual machines, that it was placed on my to-do list.

The to-do list that came and went far too late.

As it so happened, I did check the internals of my system, and what I found was punishing. While my backup system is a i7-920 idling around 20C with a high quality cooling system and conventional hard drives, this system had a fan and heatsink teetering on the brink of self-destruction. How long was this happening? Weeks? Months? Was my processor clocking itself down to compensate? The silence of the solid state drives served a newfound and deadly purpose: I could no longer determine a change in any sound if my CPU fan inexplicably stopped working. And it certainly stopped working.

With Windows needing to be re-installed due to problems from power failures that occurred months ago, I checked the internals… in a haste, I tried to release the fan from the bondage of the dust or debris that must have been causing its malfunction. An incorrect assessment, as soon after, I placed the fan back into the chassis and noticed its 200 RPM speed. Its slow, songbird twilight wind was masking the harsh reality of this spinning fan. At the center of its axis, the most tremendous heat could be felt, as it was surely struggling to spin at the highest possible speed. No doubt, the motherboard was sending heavy voltage to the device to increase its speed due to the CPU temperature overload – but it could not compensate.

And now… with the CPU gone, the operating system obliterated, and much of my work destroyed, I await new equipment. It’s not like I had not planned for disaster to strike. I knew that all equipment does eventually fall into disrepair. All systems fail. I had no idea of how quickly it could sweep from underneath me, like a tyrant once again.

Now, stuck on backup equipment, with sub-standard software, and limited capabilities, I have ordered new equipment. But my primary system will never be the same. While I mitigated as much data loss as I could, my two-years of Windows 7 stability has come to an end. Days will be spent restoring my ability to manufacturer even the smallest graphic, or to change even one line of code. A history of files that survived additions and removals from various motherboards, RAID controllers, and so on… all is gone. And the need for a better heatsink and fan ever vexing me, as I am unable to do much but type…

Times like these can often remind us of how much we rely on our computer systems for work, play, news, information, media, and so forth. Without this computer, I feel as though my car died in the middle of the desert. And there is nothing in that car but ice cream.

Now, it is up to me to bring it back. Of course, I will. The installation of a new back plate, the careful recoating of the processor with Artic Silver 5, and the placement of a better heatsink and fan combo will ease the shock to my system, assuming no shock occurs to my other system. For so much as I tried to fortify my backup devices from harm, the main system itself had inadequate protection.

Or perhaps it just was Murphy’s Law. Either way, a system is down today, and it is hoped to be repaired soon. I only hope the CPU is not irrevocably damaged. But from all system failures comes a lesson. I will have to check the internal integrity of my system at least once a week, from top to bottom, to ensure its ultimate reliability.




If you don't already have a Live version of a Linux CD, then you should look into getting this version of Knoppix. 4.0.2
http://www.knoppix.net/
I fix a lot of PC’s, those really messed up by viruses, or the OS has crashed and needs reinstalling, etc. Using Knoppix, you can get into any PC and look at the hard-drive (As long as it’s not dead.) Back-up files to CD/DVD, or to another partition. You can also create new partitions, delete files, rename files, etc.
You can also go on the net and download drivers, etc if need be, and then saving them to a CD/DVD or to your USB thumb drive.
A live CD of Linux is a must for anyone needing to fix a Windows PC. Plus it’s fun to learn a bit about Linux without needing to install it. Everything runs right from the CD. The live CD, version 4.0.2 is a free download from.

MORE: What is KNOPPIX�?

KNOPPIX is a bootable CD with a collection of GNU/Linux software, automatic hardware detection, and support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB devices and other peripherals. KNOPPIX can be used as a Linux demo, educational CD, rescue system, or adapted and used as a platform for commercial software product demos. It is not necessary to install anything on a hard disk. Due to on-the-fly decompression, the CD can have up to 2 GB of executable software installed on it.




Okay...I've seen several tutorials/info on dual booting, but usually it's only one hard drive. What I want to do is install 2 OS on 2 different HDDs.

My first idea was to install Debian and Win7 on the same 500GB HDD (which is now my secondary hard drive). But since then, I had taken it to the shop and got my Windows 7 Hard drive, which was originally in this same computer, installed while getting a new MoBo. They had asked if I wanted the second HDD removed but I said no, I wanted to dual boot. I was hanging on to the small chance that they would leave the 500GB HDD alone, but they reformatted it as the secondary hard drive and I lost Debian. I've wanted to run some form of Linux on my computer for several months now.
Anyways....
I have one 160GB WD SATA HDD with Windows 7 32-bit
and one 500GB SG SATA HDD that I would like to partition - 100GB + 2GB Swap for Debian.
I've been through my disk manager and I see that they are both NTFS file systems (formatted, yes?), and I know...I'll probably need to resize the 500GB HDD. What should I use to resize it -the disk manager or something else entirely?

I guess what I want to know, is how should I go about this? I am perfectly fine with using GRUB. The only form of Windows 7 I have is my repair disk I asked for at the shop, and...possibly a family member's CD. I have a Lenny LiveCD too, but I'd like to use the squeeze I was recommended.

Should I disconnect the Win7 HDD and proceed to install Debian or should I leave the hard drive alone and install Debian that way? I saw on one tutorial that Ubuntu (9.10 I think....) recognises Windows 7 but I'm not sure about Debian...

When I get Debian installed, what do I do about Windows 7 to make it bootable...to make it an option on GRUB? I saw somewhere that I would need comment out or add something to a file...

Now, I'm a total beginner when it comes to Linux and "dual boot" which is why I'm asking before jumping into something that may be way over my head, but I'm willing to do just about anything to get this up and running as long as there are instructions someone can give me. :-)

Thanks in advance,

-Nicole




Hello there. I have posted this issue on a Ubuntu help forum, but everyone seems to be suggesting that this is indeed a windows error. This is a copy and paste of my problem.
------
hi there. I haven't messed with ubuntu in a long while, because of this problem.

what happened was i had ubuntu dual installed alongside my windows 7. I had grub as its main boot loader. I can't remember if i did the partitioning myself that time or not, pretty sure I did. However, for whatever reason, my grub loader failed once and it caused me to have to reset the mbr via a windows 7 disk.

after I did this and ever since, the partitions I had set for ubuntu (a whopping 50gb) have been invisible to me. I KNOW they are there because my windows 7 says that my HDD says it is only like 418 in size. Clearly the memory is gone SOMEWHERE, but the partitions are not visible in either windows' partitioning tool, or when I load up a boot disk and use something like gparted.

any suggestions on what happened or how I can get my memory back? ive been making due with the missing memory, but its annoying me like a twitch.

as well, if this is in the wrong forum, its quite obvious how its a tough call between a software and hardware issue.

thanks.

EDIT: I must also mention that my dual boot worked just fine for the longest time. it then suddenly made me go through two screens to get to my ubuntu. (id click ubuntu, then it would give me options for what ubuntu as opposed to how it was originally of just clicking ubuntu once) then shortly after that (few days) the grub crash happened. it really had no reason to do that, so i am very confused as to WHY. I just want my memory back though. currently it only has windows 7 at startup and does NOT use grub.

--------

This here is a link to an image of what I am talking about with the missing memory
http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...tradiction.jpg

This here is the result of a sudo fdisk -lu command using a Ubuntu live disk.

Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders, total 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2 206848 976771071 488282112 7 HPFS/NTFS
root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu#

What it comes down to, is that my partitioning tools say two different things. That my internal HDD is either a 465gb or a 418 (418 is the result of shrinking the HDD size to incorporate the dual boot for Ubuntu). But according to EVERY partitioning tool I use, the partitions no longer exist... but windows 7 still doesnt see the space I used for it as being there again. Its like someone physically chipped away 50 gigs out of my hard drive.




With new laptops coming out at a deep discount, many savvy computer users may be interested in taking advantage of such offers and then upgrading their laptop with a 3rd party solid state drive. The most common updates appear to be made through Crucial, OCZ, and Intel, all of whom make decent and well placed SSDs at what is slowly becoming an affordable price.
Modern AHCI controllers make use of a feature called TRIM. TRIM allows the operating system to inform the SSD that files are no longer needed on the drive and can be removed. To make a long story short, this helped solve a lot of problems with early SSDs and paved the way for better innovation.

If you are looking at new laptops recently, but are on a low budget, you may be in luck. Many new laptops are coming out with dedicated mobile video cards from NVIDA and ATI. They are also coming out with Sandy Bridge-based motherboards that have native USB3 ports and eSATA on-board. Here’s where things get tricky for upgraders:

First of all, you should know that with many Intel Sandy Bridge boards and later, you are going to have problems installing Windows 7 off USB. So you may want to think twice before you perform that clean install. This is because Windows 7 does not understand USB3 too well, and, at the time the OEM bits were shipped for the SP1 release and the original RTM, no one knew when USB3 was going to become available. You should be prepared to clean install Windows 7 from your DVD-ROM drive and install USB3 native drivers later.

Secondly, there is compelling evidence that there is a weird LPM issue with some SSDs, especially Crucial SATA-3 SSDs and LPM. LPM is basically a power saving feature for hard drives, but it can also cause some AHCI systems using Sandy Bridge-based systems and later motherboards to cause the SSD to go haywire and freeze. Fortunately, there is a way to solve the “system freeze” once Intel Rapid Storage Management (RST) is installed on your system.
First, check and see what is going on in your Event Viewer when the freeze takes place. If you are seeing something such as “The device, DeviceIdeiaStor0, did not respond within the timeout period.”, you very likely want to deal with this problem using the fix detailed below.

Please remember, that while Intel RST was originally designed for RAID controllers, it is now used to exploit advanced features of Intel-based chipsets even on AHCI based systems. In other words, Intel RST is good to have for anyone using an Intel-based chipset.

Use the following registry edit to disable LPM if you are receiving an “iaStore” issue in Event Viewer, and an intermittent system freeze with your newly installed SSD:

Create a file called ssd-lpm-fix.reg using Notepad and enter the following data:

Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesiaStorParametersPort0] "LPM"=dword:00000000 "LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000 "DIPM"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesiaStorParametersPort1] "LPM"=dword:00000000 "LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000 "DIPM"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesiaStorParametersPort2] "LPM"=dword:00000000 "LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000 "DIPM"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesiaStorParametersPort3] "LPM"=dword:00000000 "LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000 "DIPM"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesiaStorParametersPort4] "LPM"=dword:00000000 "LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000 "DIPM"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetservicesiaStorParametersPort5] "LPM"=dword:00000000 "LPMDSTATE"=dword:00000000 "DIPM"=dword:00000000 Run the .reg file to enter it into your registry and make the necessary modifications. You must have Intel RST installed for this to work.

Also check out this guy's blog, who seems to know what he's talking about: Dell and Intel screw up big time -- iaStor and Windows Vista

Looks like this problem has been going on since Windows Vista, especially on Dell laptops, hard drives that may not fully support the LPM/LPD specification for Link-state Power Management, and other issues. One thing is for sure: If the crashing and freezing problems with your SSD or other type of hard drive go away after applying this patch, chances are you do not have a hardware problem, but, in fact, there is a problem with Intel RST itself or a flaw in the hardware implementation of Link-State Power Management over AHCI or RAID on your computer. If that's the case, there's probably nothing to worry about, for so long as the problem goes away. Since LPM is designed to save power, and since SSDs consume far less energy than a standard 2.5" hard drive, disabling LPM in the registry shouldn't create a battery issue.

Note: If you are not getting a "iaStore" error in your Windows Event Logs, you should be careful about making this change. Further, if you are not having any hard drive issues with intermittent freezing, etc. making this change will be mostly pointless. However, many users who have experienced intermittent hard drive freezes under AHCI and RAID have been able to solve the problem by disabling LPM in the registry using this option. A zip file of the .reg file is included as an attachment. ​Use at your own risk!

Join Date Jun 2012 Posts 1 Re: Intermittent SSD Freezing on Newer Laptops THANK YOU for posting this thread

I actually was having freezing issues myself with a Crucial M$ 128gb. I should re-word that, and say that I have used the M4 for 4 months and NEVER had a problem, until I went to a new motherboard, the ASUS Maximus V Gene, and even though all my drivers were up-to-date, I was experiencing these freezes, which if I would CTRL-ALT-DEL would lead me to the logon screen that read, "Preparing Security Options". Googling a bit, I eventually found this thread.

The freezing problem in my case wasn't all that apparent unless I did certain things; especially when running VirtualBox and doing other things like browsing or listening to music at the same time. So running VB in the background became my way of testing this problem. I had already installed Intel RST. But whatever drivers I installed and re-installed, the issue would not go away. These freezes would come on regularly. At first I thought my mouse is freezing, and indeed I found some mention of USB problems on the ROG forum reported by people who also have the board I have.

Anyway, since I applied to reg tweak given here, I have installed Win7 x64 on Virtualbox, while working in Win7 x64 (actual install) and I have not experienced the freezing issue anymore. So I'm pretty sure the LPM issue is what was causing the freezes for me as well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that that is indeed the issue, because otherwise I wouldn't know what could be the problem with my board. The only possibility could be that I'm running 2 of the M4's in my system now, and I am using the new one as my system drive now, and I've only been using the new SSD for a couple of days (since the new mobo build).

I also run across this interesting and related post on another forum, which gives the ability to add the LPM enable/disable feature to the Power Options advanced settings window.

Thanks a bunch for taking the time to post this!




1. Is there a difference between a clean and custom installation?

When considering a OS change from Vista 32 to Win 7/64 bit, which process should I be using? Or are the words clean/custom install more or less semantics and mean the same thing?

2. I have been looking at purchasing Win 7 Pro 64 bit online. But I see that there are like 3 different versions, w/3 different prices.

A. The Full version has both 32/64 bit OS for $270.00.

B. The Win 7 Pro SP1 64 bit OEM version is $135.00.

C. The upgrade version I believe also has both 32/64 bit OS at $148.00.

Doesn't make much sense to include two programs if you only need/want the 64 bit OS. If you are trying to upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit, why would one want a 32 bit OS and pay extra $$$ for it? Doesn't make sense?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Below is a review by a purchaser of Win 7 Upgrade. I commented within the review in blue.

"Windows Vista(tm) Home Premium cannot be upgraded to Windows 7 Professional.

You can choose to install a new copy of Windows 7 Professional instead, but this is different from an upgrade, and does not keep your files, settings, and programs. You'll need to reinstall any programs using the original installation discs or files. To save your files before installing Windows, back them up to an external location such as a CD, DVD, or external hard drive. To install a new copy of Windows 7 Professional, click the Back button in the upper left-hand corner, and select "Custom (advanced)".

Simply said you cannot upgrade Home Premium, keeping your programs and files, you must start over similar to a clean install.. To install Windows 7 on top of Home Premium while maintaing all of your files, programs, settings etc., you must purchase the Ultimate Upgrade for $19 more.

Vista32 to Win7: I presume here this reviewer was referring to a 32 bit OS upgrade.

This will allow people who are not "computer friendly" upgrade without the hassle of backing up files, re-installing programs etc. especially if you don't know where the original program CD(s) are...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vista32 to Win7: I am not that "computer friendly", but trying to comprehend the right Win 7 Pro 64 bit OS to buy, install, and transfer data on my machine.

Upgrade advisor says I need to do a "custom install" to go from 32 bit to 64 bit. Whereas someone else insisted I need to do a "clean install". So that's one question here, which one?

The Upgrade Advisor also says I can install Premium or Ultimate, but doesn't list the Pro version. So not to sure what's up here? I presume if I do a clean or custom install I can use any version of Win 7, is this correct?

I also need to change my HDD, and transfer my old data to a new HDD. Best, simplest, least expensive way to do this?

I could use an external HDD enclosure, put the new HDD in the enclosure, and use "Windows Easy Transfer" to transfer my data to the new HDD, and replace the old HDD with the new HDD?

"Windows Easy Transfer" transfers data [pics, documents, etc.], but not programs. So not sure when my programs get installed, before or after installing the new OS? Seems if you install the new OS it would wipe out the old programs with the new OS programs, or am I missing something here?

I saved some documents on my [C:] drive, to a CD. I tried burning some files that would not fit completly on one empty CD. So not sure what do here. I presume if there was not enough room on the CD, you could just pop another empty CD back in the CD tray to burn the rest of whatever remanined in the file? But that's why I'm here asking questions?

Thinking about getting an empty external HDD, but that's another expense I'm not sure I really need. [$60-$80]. As I presume I can just transfer any data and programs onto the new HDD when I get it. Or maybe a USB flash drive? So need some direction on the simplest route to take on doing all of the above.

Any responses or help appreciated. Thanks, Vista to Win 7.




Hi Everyone.

I am trying to re-instal a fresh copy of Win 7 64 bit on my comp. I am currently running Win 7 64 bit, which seems corrupt. It has the following problems

Control Panel right click doesn't work any more
Windows update doesn't work any more
Unable to upgrade IE 9 to IE 10
Net framework not working, and no way of fixing it/upgrading it
MS Office icons and right clicking doesn't work.
MS office documents seem to get corrupted, and often cause computer to hang
I run Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird both of which often crash

The more i try to fix it, the more problems i encounter, so i want to do a fresh instal

32 bit Vista instals no problem.

I have been reading the forum on error 0x80070570 and have tried just about everything there to no avail.

I have taken the following steps

Updated all device drivers
Ran numerous spy ware inhibitors and anti virus software
Re-burned DVD (numerous times)
Copied disk to USB drive.
Used other peoples DVD's
I even get the error when trying to re-instal Win 7 on the top of my current Win 7 installation.
Replaced ram
Installed Vista 32 bit with no problem

I am starting to think that it may be a hardware error.

I would like to try the following things, but i don't have the knowledge to do them:

Isolate computer components, if the ram itself is not the problem, the mother board which holds the ram might be at fault.
I run two internal disk drives - i am not sure what is the master/slave and how to alter this.
Update the BIOS to change the SATA drives (i have seen reference to this on forums but don't know how to do it.)

Machine Specs are

Operating System
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
CPU
Intel Core i3 2100 @ 3.10GHz 43 °C
Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
RAM
16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)

Any help would be appreciated




for all thoes people who are experiencing this problem, i have a few tips that worked for me.

Solving Windows freeze on startup....(this can happen when even booting from the startup disk, it has nothing to do with any drivers or software related issues) If you have sprung upon this problem after installing a driver, then it is a possibility, but for the majority of people who havent been able to enter windows, this is for you.

Fault finding process;

1. UNPLUG all USB connectors, including keyboard and mice USB. Use PS2 keyboard for BIOS settings
Reboot windows, Problem still stands??? Yes - move onto step 2. No - Diagnose which USB is causing your problems (connect one by one untill windows fails to boot. Main possibility is USB keyboard. Try disabling any USB Keyboard options in the BIOS.

2.Enter BIOS settings - Depending on your BIOS, Disable any USB Keyboard options.
Test Windows?, Move onto step 3

3. Disable ALL LAN Networking Controllers from the BIOS!. Try removing LAN boot from the Boot sequence options.
(Disabling network controllers worked for me.)
Failing to succeed move onto step 4

4. Try Disabling all Raid options in the BIOS

5. Switch off your computer, remove one by one, each pci card you may have, and retry booting. Do not re-insert the card removed until all cards are removed. 2 cards could be simultaneuosly causing the problem. By PCI cards, i mean the accessories, such as WIFI cards, tv capture cards etc from inside your computer. Removing the graphics card may be an option if you have onboard graphics to switch to.
-If windows boots on the removal of your graphics card, this could indicate a video setting issue with in you BIOS.

6. Disable any special motherboard functions, they may not be compatible with windows 7.
Make a backup of your BIOS settings before tinkering, save a BIOS profile if your motherboard supports it, or reset to defaults if you cant remeber what youve changed.

Failing upon that....
Try inserting the windows disc and booting from it, if you still get the freeze, it is a BIOS issue, so the fix is in that BIOS somewhere! Youve just got to find it!
Try removing all hard drives and booting, If you windows disc succeeds to boot, and enters a hard drive - driver select window, then your windows disc is most likely fine, meaning the disc is not the source of the problem.
Try plugging in a hard drive used for storage through IDE or sata. One that doesnt have a windows platform installed.
If the freeze stilll occurs when booting from the disc, you can be sure its not a driver related issue.

I hope this help!




Hello all,

I'm new around here and I've got a problem with my networking.

Relevant Hardware:
Asus Sabertooth (first verson) 990FX Maim board.
2x WD 7200RPM HDs
Windows 7 Ult x64

Background:
I install 2 disk hard drives into my computer to set them up into a Raid 0.

Now I got them installed and the the raid set up. But when I boot back into windows I find that the Realtek Network Controller is missing. After several days I finally learned that its actually a bug between Windows 7 and the Realtek Network Controller and a lot of people seem to be suffering from it. About the only method is to cut power to the PC for 10+ minutes.

The gist was that Windows 7 put the network controller into a "Deep Sleep Mode" and the BIOS could not override this (in fact the BIOS said the controller was enabled when it really wasn't). Since it seems that the actually active BIOS and the one I actually flash are not exactly the same thing I'm thinking this issue is caused by Windows 7.

Now I went ahead and installed Windows 7 on the Raid 0 setup to see if it was just OS specific. Turns out the device was still turned off and neither OS install could turn it back on.

I did go to the Realtek website (the Asus drivers were out of date, although I tried them at least once anyways) and installed those drivers.

When I reboot the computer, it says the device is there, if I try to reinstall the device it says that it doesn't exist again. The behavior is exactly the same no matter which boot I use.

Now the entire rest of the system works perfectly and the actual port was at the far end of the board from where I was working.

So right now I've tried both of my ethernet cables. Both work fine when I plug them into my laptop but not my desktop so I don't think those are the issue. I have taken some q-tips (no cleaner) and wiped off the contacts on the motherboard and the cable although this produced no change in behavior.

What is very weird is that both the router and the mainboard have a small LED light that is supposed to light up when the cable is connected. When I hook up the cable, the router's LED is on and doing that rapid flash it seems to do when talking to a computer (and it does this continously) but the mainboard's port does not light up.

On the Windows end, when the Device Manager says the Network Controller is working perfectly, the message is that its "Connected to a Unknown Network" and "No Network Access" (not internet, just network, seems to be different errors). If I unplug the cable from either end then it just says "Not Connected - No connections are available".

Another thing I noticed (memory is a little blury after 5 days) is that when the Device Manager says that it cannot find the Network Controller the registry data for that controller (in the current control set) is also missing.

And I apologize, this should have been written earlier, but unchecking the box's in the Controller's power options (so the OS couldn't turn it off) had no effect on the device disappearing.

This last round I had windows auto-install a driver for the controller is and is coming back with the reboot for the time being.

Problem:
Windows cannot seem to connect to my router. Info above.

Thats about all I can give you. I don't have any space on the mainboard to put a NIC card because all of the space is taken by 2 bricks (Radeon 6950 cards) so the port is all I've got.

Can anyone help me? Thanks!





Windows 7 Forums recommends Auslogics BoostSpeed to repair Windows errors. Get it now.
May 1st, 2012: 25% off. Use coupon code: WINDOWS7FORUMS

Optimize every aspect of Windows 7 with the System Advisor or manually.Repair corrupt registry entries and defragment the registry.Disable and enable services based on how you are using your computer.Adjust and edit hundreds of settings to fix your computer in a few easy clicks.Includes File Recovery (undelete) free of charge.

Other Auslogics software:

Auslogics Antivirus
Auslogics File Recovery
Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro

Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 is quite possibly the best overall system maintenance tool of the year. Having received 5 stars from CNET, they also receive a 10/10 full endorsement from Windows7Forums.com. BoostSpeed isn't just about making your computer fast: It's about making preventative maintenance manageable through one application. While the market calls for a typical system scan to attract buyers, that scan is entirely legitimate, and does correct serious registry problems in a way that far exceeds industry expectations. CCleaner, for example, can hardly hold a candle to this utility.

Looking closer at the System Advisor, we can determine whether or not the Internet connection can be automatically optimized. This is done with BoostSpeed through a manual or automatic setting in the Auslogics Internet Optimizer. Auslogics Registry Defrag will let you know that you can reduce registry access time and increase overall system performance by running this tool. This is a very delicate task that most freeware applications will not take on. Defragmenting the registry involves significant risk if there is a failure and that is why Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 comes with a Rescue Center, which can literally allow you to backup the changes that have been made within the program. The program will even automatically create these restore points before adjusting your system for perfect fine tuning.

If the Disk and Registry Maintenance options weren't enough, Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 comes with in-depth ways to determine and modify your System Status and Privacy. If that weren't enough, the System Tweaks area allows you to optimize your Windows services around how you use your computer. This can be so useful in a work environment, as most system services continue running unabated, even when they will never be used!

Control over startup items and installed software has never been easier. Needless duplicate files found on a system can be deleted and disks can be explored to discover what is eating up all of that storage space. The System tweaks area is where Auslogics BoostSpeed really shines. It contains management options for the User Interface, Start Menu, Taskbar, Windows Explorer, System Security, Startup and Shutdown, System, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, and numerous additional Software Tweaks.

"Hi, I’m Jessica Dolcourt from CNET Download and this is a first look at Auslogics BoostSpeed. This is a top rated program that attempts to defrag, tweak, and otherwise optimize the computer where its most likely to get bogged down. Looking at the clean launch interface, you might never guess that there are 18 tools bundled into one app. The main pane is dominated by shortcuts for testing the health of the system. One Button Checkup will scan for issues and attempt to fix them. For instance, Disk Cleaner’s job is to find and remove junk files. With most scans you run, you’ll have the opportunity to take a closer look at the files, and to back them up before you change anything. Since the goal of the program is to optimize performance, BoostSpeed often frames problems in terms of how much space you would free if you deleted the loose files. On the left, the system tools are organized by activity: Computer, Cleanup, Optimization, Privacy, Settings, and so on. When you click the task category, you’ll see the available tools and a brief description of what they do. Clicking the tools launches it in a separate window, so that you can return to this main interface at any time. Most tools are easy to work their way around, and most changes can be undone in Auslogics Rescue Center, which you can get to from individual tool interfaces or from the settings on the BoostSpeed panel interface. In the Rescue Center, you’ll see a list of the changes you’ve made. You’ll be able to see full details for each entry and view archive backups as well. Which system files BoostSpeed will back up, and which it will leave alone, are things you can specify in the program settings, under the tab that says Rescue Center. We’re fans of Auslogics BoostSpeed for its comprehensive system maintenance and nicely packaged interface. Some of the app’s component parts are offered as stand-alone freeware products, such as the Disk Defrag…" - Courtesy CNET Review of Auslogics BoostSpeed

Their previous freeware products have been used regularly by IT professionals, but this product includes absolutely everything. There is nothing missing in this program, and updates are absolutely frequent. It is the one application I would recommend to every member of Windows7Forums.com without hesitation. Even if you do not know what these settings mean, this program will optimize and repair your system without any doubt. Today, there are so many programs that "claim" to do this and do that. When we saw Auslogics offering a commercial solution I had to start offering it on my website after I saw what it could do. I had to make a video about it. I had to find a way to provide a discount to members.

I have recommended it to my mother, my grandparents, and I will bring it up to a client I am currently working with tomorrow who is asking for Windows XP. This is the program that you need to automatically manage your system and keep it up-to-date, speedy, and performing in top condition.

Hello,

I am not able to open files that were originally saved onto the desktop of a
previous Windows installation. Trying to open any file whether it be a JPEG,
windows media, or a text file, result in the standard registered application
(i.e. Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, and Notepad) display that the
file not viewable.

Internet Explorer just shows an "X" image placeholder for the JPEG image.
Windows Media Player pops out an error dialog box saying "The file you are
attempting to play has an extension that does not match the file format.
Playing the file may result in unexpected behavior." Notepad just displays
an empty text file, although there seems to be tons of spaces where I assume
the original text should have been.

I originally had a Windows XP Professional installation with Service Pack 2
and opt to reformat my whole hard drive and reinstall Windows XP Profession
with Service Pack 1. Before the reformat, I moved all my data files into a
different hard drive for safekeeping. I had many files stored in folders
located on the desktop and moved those also. After the reinstall, I moved
all my files back to their original locations, reinstalled the rest of my
applications, and applied all the Windows XP hot fixes, making sure that I
didn't install Service Pack 2.

What I then found out is that almost the files that were originally on the
prior installation's Windows desktop couldn't be opened. This also includes
the My Documents folder. I had relatively success opening text files still,
having them containing the original text. I am able to open all files
originally stored in other directories (i.e. C:TEMP) and hard drives.

I created the same user accounts with the same permissions (Computer
Administrator). All the hard disks were formatted in NTFS and using the
basic disk instead of dynamic disk. I thought this would have been a
security issue, so I disabled simple file sharing, and made sure to set the
owners of the folders to the current user. That didn't help out. I tried
copying some of the files to a floppy drive (FAT format) hoping that some
security specific data would be lost. I wasn't able to open the files from
the floppy drive either. I also tried copying the files over the network to
another computer but I still wasn't able to view the files from the other
computer.

Can you guys please help me out? The computer is use by my whole family and
we have many documents for school, work, and personal projects that I don't
want to be gone. I believe that I'm a computer savvy person, currently
working as a software engineer and worked in the IT field in my high school
years. Opening the non-viewable files in a hex editor on a second computer
showed me all data as zero bytes. So this problem stumps me. I always
reinstall Windows 9x/ME/2k occasionally but this is the second time that I
reinstalled XP. The first time, done months ago, exhibited the same problem
only on one folder and I attributed it to a sister incorrectly saving files.

Thank you in advance,
Marcus Grant




Hi, I'm a fairly experienced Macintosh user, but new to the Windows world.

I routinely back up the Macintosh's internal hard drive, using a very simple procedure. I have an external fireware hard drive, at least twice as large as the amount of data I store on my internal hard drive. I drag the internal hard disk icon to the exter
nal hard disk, it copies in about fifteen minutes, nice and simple, and I'm done. If my internal hard disk ever dies or gets corrupted, I will reformat it or replace it, and copy the entire backup to the new internal hard disk. I've done it before. It work
s perfectly. This was with OS 7, 8 and 9. I assume it works just as well with OS X, though I haven't tried it.

I'd like to be able to back up my new Windows XP laptop the same way. I'll get a separate external hard drive just for that purpose. The laptop has a four pin fireWire port and USB 2 ports, so I assume either type of drive can be used.

My question: I'm getting the impression that Windowws XP will not allow me to back up and restore my internal hard disk in this manner. True?

My impression is that XP will only allow me to back up documents this way, and maybe restore points. All applications and other non-document items must be reinstalled. Is this correct?

What particularly troubles me is that my machine did not ship with an Windows XP installation CD, and the manufacturer will not provide me with one. The manufacturer has installed a "restore" uttility on the internal hard disk. However, if the whole intern
al hard disk dies an ugly death, or my machine is stolen or severely damaged, I'm pretty much out of luck.

Reinstalling a large number of complex applications, etc., can be a huge hassle, too.

If I've understood correctly, so far, my next conclusion is that I must buy third party software to back up my WP internal hard disk in the way I am accustomed to doing. True?

I've looked over the various third party XP backup products. There are surprisingly few. I'm starting to doubt that they will allow me to backup and restore my internal hard disk in the way I'm accustomed to. True?

It looks like the way to do what I want to do is to get software that will store an image of my every bit on internal hard disk, including the unused portions, to an external hard disk. True?

If I replace or reformat my internal hard disk, will my laptop boot from a drive image stored on an external hard disk, via FireWire or USB? If so, will XP allow me to copy the saved image back to the internal hard disk, and then continue using the laptop
as usual, without any problems?

I'm sorry to be so tedious. I have this bad feeling I've misunderstood something pretty basic. I've tried to read the instructions, but I'm just getting more confused!

Thanks in advance,

Tim Miller




I have a Compaq peserio. I was doing a user backup through the utility CD
provided by Compaq (and i believe it was creating a partition to backup the
data) and for some resason the power shut down. I restarted the system but
ever since i am not able to run the windows. It only shows a black window
with options like safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, Normal windows
etc...i tried all of them but system does not run in safe mode nor does it go
to the command prompt. Everytime i use any of the option it comes back to the
same screen. I also tried making the hard drive slave with another system. I
recognises my 40 GB hard drive...but it only shows me one partition with 7 GB
with none of my personal data in it.

I could reformat the disk but i want to get the data. Could anyone suggest
what could have happened and what could be the resolution.

Thanks

My family's XP workstation running Windows XP workstation with a 75GB hard
drive, and 512MB of RAM running at 1.91 ghz is down. Well the computer boots
but it cannot access the Internet. We live in a rural area and are using
dialup. We usually can connect at about 50K or around there.

Everytime we connect we try and load a webpage we get the "Page cannot be
displayed message." It does this on every website we try to access. I already
called our ISP and they say our settings are fine. What I did to resolve this
problem was the following.

1) Ran Norton Anti Virus and it found 8 viruses which it removed
2) Ran Norton System Works Win Doctor and it fixed many problems
3) Ran Webroot SpySweeper and it found over 3,000 traces of spyware. They
were all cleaned.
4) To the failure of all the problems above I tried a System Restore to a
date
when the Internet was working which was 2 days ago, but the restore failed and
said that nothintg has been changed since that date. I then tried a restore
to
a week ago and receieved the same message. Personally I think that the built
in restore system is a joke compared to some third party tools.

Just a note just know as I was composing this message on my Windows CE device.

On the desktop the Norton System works icon in the menu below just vanished I
opened the application and the enable auto protect tab is disabled under the
NAV options. So I enabled it and clicked back and it was disabled aagin. Do
you think this could be part of the problem? Perhaps there is a virus that
can
only be removed from a boot disk? On this machine we have not created boot
disks. However on my Windows 98 laptop I have createsd floppy disk boot sets
for fixing virus problems that get below the os. Perhaps this should also be
done on this XP station. I am looking and I do not see the option for
creating
boot disks with Norton System Works 2004.

Thanks...

My family's XP workstation running Windows XP workstation with a 75GB hard
drive, and 512MB of RAM running at 1.91 ghz is down. Well the computer boots
but it cannot access the Internet. We live in a rural area and are using
dialup. We usually can connect at about 50K or around there.

Everytime we connect we try and load a webpage we get the "Page cannot be
displayed message." It does this on every website we try to access. I already
called our ISP and they say our settings are fine. What I did to resolve this
problem was the following.

1) Ran Norton Anti Virus and it found 8 viruses which it removed
2) Ran Norton System Works Win Doctor and it fixed many problems
3) Ran Webroot SpySweeper and it found over 3,000 traces of spyware. They
were all cleaned.
4) To the failure of all the problems above I tried a System Restore to a date
when the Internet was working which was 2 days ago, but the restore failed and
said that nothintg has been changed since that date. I then tried a restore to
a week ago and receieved the same message. Personally I think that the built
in restore system is a joke compared to some third party tools.

Just a note just know as I was composing this message on my Windows CE device.
On the desktop the Norton System works icon in the menu below just vanished I
opened the application and the enable auto protect tab is disabled under the
NAV options. So I enabled it and clicked back and it was disabled aagin. Do
you think this could be part of the problem? Perhaps there is a virus that can
only be removed from a boot disk? On this machine we have not created boot
disks. However on my Windows 98 laptop I have createsd floppy disk boot sets

What happens when you select the WinXP option?

om...
Dear experts,

I have succeed at this before, but I am really stumped
now, so I hope that someone will be able to tell me
the secret to fix this.

Computer:
Dell 4550. XP Professional.
Dual hard drives.
Primary, C: XP only 80 gigs.
Secondary. For Redhat 2.1 120 gigs
First partition is extended, then logical /boot

Now here is something important. When I bought this
machine, the primary/only hard drive had two
partitions in it. The first partition had no drive
letter assigned and was about 30 megs. It had hardware
diagnosis software, etc on it. The second partition was
the C: drive. 80 gigs. I was able to get this to
dual boot with grub, by overwriting the MBR. That
actually worked quite well.

However, since then, the main hard drive self-destructed.
I had this replaced, and have since installed windows
on this drive. The interesting thing was that it
was not possible to create the 30 meg partition, and
still get Windows to ignore it. If I put the Windows
install on the large partition, it was labelled d:

NOw, I have tried a number of things to get Redhat to
install and dual boot. And still no luck.

MBR:
Using the previously successful MBR method:
- when booting, produced the word: GRUB in the top
left hand corner and the machine completely hung.
This happened for both Suse, and for Redhat installations.

Using the boot.ini method:
- used this command:
dd if=/dev/hdb5 of=/mnt/floppy/linux.bin bs=512 count=1

copied the file linux.bin to c:

- when the machine boots, it gives me the choice of
XP, or Linux.
- when I choose linux, the machine then reboots from
scratch, and then gives me the same choice.
- an infinite loop.
- it should go into the grub menu.

Does anyone know how to get the dual boot to work?
What is the secret please?

I'll include some files and output he

boot.ini:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP

I have a new P4 computer with Win XP home edition, lots of RAM and
hard drive space and a CD burner. I have a few basic questions about
burning CD's

1. Are CD-R's always recorded as "read only"?

2. Are CR-RW's recordable as "read only" and/or "non read only"?

3. Am I correct in assuming that in order to record/manipulate data in
conjunction with CD-R's and CD-RW's I should use a 3rd party software?

If the answer to # 3 is yes what is a good piece of software?

My basic problem is being able to move ( by burning a CD) my jpg's to
CD and then later delete and/or move the jpg's back to the hard drive.
The "read only" file will not let me delete or move them. I can only
copy them back to the hard drive.

It seemd to me that I did not have this problem on my old computer.

I know these are basic things to most people but any inputs would be
appreciated.

TIA Loring H

Problem:
Every 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours the system crashes. Either it reboots, freezes,
blue screens, you name it. The errors are listed below.

Tests run:
I have used Burn in test from Passmark and the computer always passes fine
(trial only runs for 15 mins). I have also booted from a CD Memtest and run
many tests on the memory. All pass fine. When the system is running, up until
it crashes, I can find no issues, problems or other demons. It is not
overclocked. I have tried different drivers from Nvidia and now use Guru3d’s
latest.

Follow ups (from posts in other boards)
So Nvidia IDE, SW, and audio drivers removed, still have the same issue.

Some have suggested it may be a RAID 5 issue with the OS and the paging
file. Any comments on this? Gonna try one HD and no raid tonight. I have a
suspicious feeling it’s got to be a software issue. Either driver or OS. I
have removed the Nvidia IDE and SW drivers but still have the same issue. 5
tech boards and all my geek friends and we’re all still perplexed. It sucks
to have an uncommon issue...

Ok, I know it's not heat. I had a fan blowing into the system. When the
computer crashed (at 1 1/2 hour) the Vid card was at 64C, Northbridge at 48C,
CPU 42C. Memory was cool to the touch. Heck, I was two feet away and freezing.

I am currently (like, right at the moment) running prime95's extreme test or
whatever it's called to stress the CPU, Cache and Memory. The CPU is up to
52C (highest it's ever been), the memory is warm, and I can feel the heat of
the air comming out of the case. Again, it can't be a heat issue or it would
of crashed by now (this is probably the hottest it's ever been).

A techie I work with said he had regular issues when the bios would drop his
HDs into power save mode. It would happen if they weren't accessed for 20
mins then if they came back on the system was unstable and would crash. I
have all the power save options in the bios disabled and in windows they're
all on "never". Even the screen saver is off. He also said since it is
religiously every 1 1/2hours then there has to be some program that kicks on
at 1 1/2 hours and creates a memory/disk paging or allocation/conflict error
(hence, BSOD). What the hell could that be? I have norton and windows auto
updates off, and anything else I can think of off. Is there somewhere I can
go and post all the stuff that's running so you guys can look it over
(msconfig maybe?)

Prime said if your power supply was inefficent the voltages should drop when
you start the test. Needless to say, they are rock solid. Let me give you
what Hmonitor shows as the voltages:

+12v = +12.03v
+5v = +4.89v
Core = +1.46v
I/O = +3.31v (this is the 3.3v rail)
Aux (what is this?) = +1.17v

Just keeping everyone up to date so we can figure this out.

And FYI, Prime has been going for 30 some odd minutes and has passed Self
Test: Test 1-4, 1024k; Test 1-5 8k; Test 1-5, 10k; and is currently running
test 2 of the 896k.
