I am sorry to be so vague, but my laptop has started to do some strange things.

I have been informed twice now since Saturday, by friends, that the e-mails that I have sent have been totally unreadable. They have been described as being in code? Yesterday morning I sent a single e-mail and when I checked to see that it was going along with the attachments by clicking on the 'Sync' button at the top of the page the window showed 6 e-mails going out? Is it possible that someone is 'piggybacking' my PC to send spam or other rubbish?

My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium and I am using Windows Live Mail. Everything is up to date as far as I know because I have auto-update enabled. My antivirus prog is Avast and that too should be up to date.

Also, I m using Firefox because IE8 was deemed to have a security problem, and several times I have been typing replies on forums I belong to and when I hit the 'New Line' key the page has swopped to a different tag?

Has anyone any idea as to what this might be?




Hey,

Im buying Windows 7 Home Premium E to clean install over my vista. But if i wanted to go back to vista for a while by using the factory reset on my laptop could i reinstall 7 again.

So like i install 7 once. Reinstall vista over that. Then install 7 again. Will the product key still work or do i need a new licence since they key has been used. Will it activate since its the same pc or will it not.

Please i want to know before pre-ordering.

Thank you,




Alright, I got Windows 7 the other day, and I'm having some major installation problems that I can't figure out. The first sign of it not being right is how long it took. Most people are saying it took them 20 minutes or so to install. For me, it took 6 hours or so. After installation, it doesn't even work. It'll show the "Starting Windows" screen with the glowing windows logo, then I get a black screen for a few minutes, and finally I get a black screen with a cursor, but it never gets by that. Also, I used the same disc (burnt from correct MD5 ISO file on lowest speed) I'm using on a friends laptop, which installed as smoothly as possible. I've tried 3 different DVD drives on my computer, and it's the same deal on all of them. I tried removing anything extra I could, like my sound card, and disabling onboard LAN, etc., and that didn't help either. It's like each step in the installation process takes way longer than it should. For example, the first screen of the installation, where it pops up the window to pick your language, came up in a matter of seconds on my friends laptop, but on my PC it takes literally 15 minutes or so before it shows. And even when it shows, it's really laggy picking options and such. I've also reset the BIOS to factory settings to see if that would help, and it didn't. Anyone know what would be causing this? I researched around the internet, and I can't find a single example of anyone else having this problem, or any install problems really. The specs of the computer are in my sig. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a ton in advance.




Hi
I was previously using windows xp but decided to try out windows 7 recently.So I formatted the partition that contained my windows xp( i know i am stupid ) and installed windows 7 over it.I have like 4-5 partitions on my PC sicne i keep a seperate partition for different purposes like games ,movies,etc..
Now since most online games aint supporting windows7 i decided to install windows xp in another partition.So i went into diskmanagement and freed up some space around 15gb just so i can install xp and dualboot for gamming purposes.Now when i put my windows xp CD and start a installation the boot starts and it loads watever stuff it needs to install the OS from the CD.Then at the bottom it displays windows is about to start and then i get a blue screen crash.I downloaded a fresh windows xp iso file thinking mine might have been corrupted but i got the blue screen crash like 5 times in a row with different CDs.
Can ny one help me on how I can install windows xp on windows7 RC build 7100 properly without the bluescreen crashes.

My current LAPTOP SPECS
Model:COMPAQ CQ60 104TU
Intel dual core @ 2.0 Ghz
2GB DDR2 RAM
250GB HDD

My laptop model doesnt come with any preinstalled OS since I wanted a laptop with XP rather than vista.
Hope someone can help me




I have been having BSOD occuring randomly. I have tried reinstalling windows, flashing bios, updating misc drivers, ran CHKDSK on os, memtest rams 3-4 pass.

i played games entire weekend and nothing happened but after three days my laptop crashed again.

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on. The drivers for these devices haven't been installed:
Not Available USBVID_138A&PID_00050A012F8EB85 The drivers for this device are not installed.

Not Available ACPIHPQ00043&11583659&0 The drivers for this device are not installed.

PCI Simple Communications Controller PCIVEN_8086&DEV_3B64&SUBSYS_144A103C&REV_063&11583659&0&B0 The drivers for this device are not installed. Please download them from the HP website and install them
The first one is your validity sensor/fingerprint reader
The second one is the ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection/HP 3D Drive Guard
The third one is the Intel Management Engine Interface (Intel MEI)

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Please remove the ElbyCDIO driver - you have the version from 2010, which was known to cause sudden reboots/BSODs - http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=ElbyCDIO.sys

Also Remove the Virtual Clone CD Driver - that's dated from 2011, 2 months after the ElbyCDIO.sys - since both drivers come from the same company, I suggest you uninstall it to : http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=VClone.sys

Update your chipset drivers - Drivers can be found here: HP ProBook 4540s Notebook PC - Download drivers and software - HP Business Support Center

Uninstall your Bluetooth Drivers if you don't use them very often - Windows 7 doesn't like Bluetooth devices very much :
http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=amppal.sys
http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=btmhsf.sys
http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=btmhsf.sys
http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=iBtFltCoex.sys

Although probably not relevant to the subject, you should still update your Realtek Audio Drivers - they date back to just about a year ago - http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=Rt64win7.sys

The anlaysis's point to a memory error (from what I can see at least) - A few things you can do:

Option 1:
1. Click "Computer" (In the start menu, on the right hand side).
2. Under the title "Hard Disk Drives", right-click the drive your Windows is installed on (should be C:, but can be D: or E: or things) and then click "Properties".
3. Under the "tools" tab, select "Check Now" and schedule the scan on reboot.
4. Reboot your computer, and let the scanner run. Once the test has finished, record the results and report back.

Option 2:
These 2 links: Memory Diagnostics and Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure
Follow the instructions on both, and then post back the results.

Option 3:
These 2 links: Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool and HD Tune website
Download both (the memtest needs to be put on a CD) and run them - let the memtest run for about several passes, and the hdtune for a few hours (preferably overnight). Post back the results.

However:
You also mention that you installed a new printer - Have you made sure:

The Printer was in a usable condition (hopefully it was before you bought it, but you'd be surprised...)?

The correct plugs are in the right places (the cable between the printer and your laptop, the power cable is in the power plug etc.)?

You installed the correct drivers correctly (ie: the correct drivers for the device, installing the drivers properly etc.)?

That's all I can think of so far.




Hi!

I have shut down failure too! The shut down screen takes minutes and then my laptop restarts or just turns off the screen and I have to make a forced turn off. My desktop pc restarts after every shut down. Both of them has fresh installed Win7 32bit.
I found the Minidump folder and attached the files from it.

Please help me!
Thanks,

The issue is being caused by ESET. Uninstall it in safe mode with the tool found here:

AV Uninstallers - Windows 7 Forums

Reboot and install MSE to replace the antivirus.

----------

Also uninstall Daemon Tools. Then use this installer/uninstaller to remove sptd.sys. Do not update instead while using. There's a choice:

DuplexSecure - Downloads

Reboot and install PowerISO to replace it. The disc emulation part of the software is free forever:

PowerISO - Create, Edit, Compress, Encrypt, Split, Mount, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter, Virtual Drive

-------

Update your Ricoh card reader drivers from your laptop manufacturer's website:

rimspe86 rimspe86.sys Wed Jul 01 19:50:14 2009
risdpe86 risdpe86.sys Tue Jun 30 06:28:26 2009

Do the same for the Conexant modem drivers:

VSTAZL3 VSTAZL3.SYS Wed Oct 15 20:30:03 2008
VSTDPV3 VSTDPV3.SYS Wed Oct 15 20:32:04 2008
VSTCNXT3 VSTCNXT3.SYS Wed Oct 15 20:29:13 2008

And finally, while there, install the latest ValueAdded Package.




When you have a Ferrari you might want to test drive it on a circuit, where there are none of the limitations of a town street. Well, when you have Internet Explorer 9 Beta you need a “circuit” on which to test it, something more than just your average Internet websites, applications and services.

Somewhere where you could really go “pedal to the metal” on IE9. Where the browser will show just what it is capable of.

Fortunately enough, a wide range of such sites designed for Internet Explorer 9 already exist, with a plethora of Microsoft partners introducing new IE9-related web projects with the launch of the Beta on September 15th, 2010.

The Beauty of the Web launch event for IE9 Beta earlier this week was a real show of force from Microsoft partners.

At the bottom of the screen I included a range of photos from the partner section of the event. Below you will also be able to find a list of links with some amazing IE9 websites from the software giant’s Beauty of the Web event.

“Richer Web experiences can blend into the consumer's desktop experience comfortably and consistently. So, today we have an A to Z, literally, of Web sites, partners, live with Web experiences that take advantage of IE9, even more than the A to Z of the Web,” revealed Dean Hachamovitch, Corporate Vice President, Internet Explorer, Microsoft earlier this week.

But there is additional bleeding edge content from various web design firms, and new perspectives on entertainment and news from BBC, CNN, Hulu, Vimeo, and Daily Motion.

Over 50 projects were on display in total, many of them built in very short time, just a matter of weeks, in preparation for the event.

But all of them extremely impressive, and all of them already live on the web, and available to testers around the world.

It’s important to underline that although the Redmond company catalyzed the creation of the projects, it made sure to have them work not only across Internet Explorer 9, but also across rival browsers.

Superb projects such as Endless Mural will function in IE9, as well as any other browser that supports HTML5.

All the websites featured at the Beauty of the web event in fact, are set up to take advantage of modern web standards, such as HTML5, CSS3, SVG, etc.

And usage is in no way restricted to IE9, which is a brilliant move from Microsoft, showing its commitment to users, developers and partners alike, and a strong focus on driving the web forward by making the same markup vision a reality.

Hey everyone. I hate doing this when I know there are already other similar discussions, but I haven't found any solution to my problem and since it sounds like most others who have experienced this problem have done so after upgrading to Windows 7 from a previous OS, which is no the case with me, I thought I should ask.

So I've got a brand new Dell studio laptop. It is not even 24 hours out of the package, so I haven't played around with overclocking my CPU or anything like that. I've done nothing to the computer at all but install firefox, a few games, and update my video and sound drivers. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit installed on it, and I'm having some strange problems with it.

First, all games I try running end up crashing. A few of my older games, such as Homeworld, don't even make it past the intro movies. I'm not sure if this has something to do with compatibility issues (the game was released in 99) ... please be patient with me, I'm not particularly computer savvy. The one game I've tried that I was actually able to play any was The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, but it too crashed about 5 or 10 minutes in, at the moment I tried slashing someone open . It will work fine if I just let it sit there. But once I pull out a weapon or try interacting with a character, it freezes for about 10 seconds, then the screen goes black and soon I'm sent to Desktop with an error message saying the program had to close.

Like I said I've updated my video and sound drivers. I tried running the games before and after doing so, but no change. DirectX 11 came on the machine so I assumed I didn't need to mess with that.

Any thoughts or suggestions? Below are my specs. I can't imagine that it would be a CPU or memory issue if the PC is at stock settings, but again, I'm not very computer savvy so I'm not even sure how to check that stuff. So any help would be much appreciated.

Code: ------------------ System Information ------------------ Time of this report: 3/27/2010, 12:07:21 Machine name: SCOTT-PC Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_rtm.090713-1255) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: Dell Inc.

Ok so I'm on a Toshiba Satellite Pro L650 with an ATI Radeon HD 5650. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. Every time I watch an online video, or run one through Windows Media Player, I get these weird glitches on my screen. Sometimes it's just a bunch of little red and green dots flashing around in random places on the video and sometimes half the video screen goes all pixelated with huge pixels in strange colours. I just put up with it because I fiddled around for a bit and couldn't find an easy fix for it. A few weeks ago my hard drive crashed and I had to send my laptop in to get a new hard drive fitted. When it came back I had to reinstall Windows and reinstall all programs and so on. I watched a few videos in the first day or two of having it back and guess what? Everything ran fine! No glitches, no random pixel attacks, nothing. But the next day, in the middle of a video, it froze up for a second and when the video played again, all the errors were back.
The only possible thing I can think of is that some Windows update must have screwed with it or something? Because at that time I was frequently installing updates to catch back up (once or twice a day) and I had recently installed updates since my last video watch. My graphics card driver is up to date according to Device Manager and no resolution changes or anything will fix it.
Anyone got any ideas?
Much appreciated

I have been testing Windows 7 on a work laptop within our company domain. I have run into something that seems to be a regression in productivity.

For the Windows XP logon screen, the user is prompted with a drop-down listbox for selection of the Domain or Local PC.
For Windows 7/Vista, the user does not have a drop-down listbox for selection of the Domain or Local PC. The user has to manually type in COMPUTERNAMEusername.

Is there any way to display both a local PC account icon AND a domain account on the logon screen?

I have seen lots of pages explaining how to remove accounts from the logon screen, but nothing for adding accounts to be displayed.

Thanks!




I recently just got a new Dell Latitude e5410 laptop with i5 core processor, 8gb ram and Windows 7 on it. It went into standby (or hibernate? not sure if there is a difference between standby and hibernate) mode and I left it sitting there plugged in for a long time. Later when I came back I noticed the screen was black as would be expected when in standby mode, but there were also white horizontal lines flickering around on top of this black screen. I started pressing some keys to see if it would come out of it, and clicking mouse buttons but it didn't respond. Later I realized if I tap the power on/off button once lightly when it is in the standby mode that it will come out of standby. But at the time I didn't know to try this. I did end up pushing the on/off button but held it in and the laptop shut off. After this I turned it back on and it told me it had been improperly shutdown and asked how I wanted to proceed. I just told it to continue on normally. After booting up again I tried to find out by looking at the event viewer if I could see any clues as to what happened, but I didn't see anything that stood out. Later I let it go back into hibernate again just to see if it would happen again. But it didn't. This time it just went to a black screen as I would've expected. I tapped the on/off switch once and it came out of that mode. This pc is really new. I mean like, I just received it. Should I think about returning it? Or is there something else I might check for this? Maybe I should just wait and see if I ever experience it again. Thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks,
Will




I Took My laptop over to my friend's house The other day, and needed to print a document to give to him. I was connected to his wifi, and he has a wifi capable printer. I went to the "Network" Folder and clicked on his printer. Windows 7 automatically installed the driver, it worked flawlessly. Later After I went Home, I decided to remove the printer, since that was a one time event. I went to remove the device from devices and printers, and after I removed the device, I refreshed the list, and it reappears!

It's Not In The Device Manager However My Printer Is.

The Photosmart is mine, the OfficeJet Is His.

Is There Something Else I Can Try?

This Bugs Me That I Cant Remove It.

Thanks In Advance,

Andrew B

i have a laptop that had windows 7 and worked (an HP Pavilion dv6).
for various reasons i decided to reinstall windows 7 and bought a copy from PC World.
i reinstalled it and it loaded and worked briefly (a few hours) but then wouldn't boot, going to "install repair" and saying it couldn't be fixed (it was trying to fix harddisk).
i thought this was strange as it was a new install but tried again.
and this time the same thing happened but straight away.

what the heck is going on? i feel like slapping bill gates right now! but maybe i should be slapping HP or myself!!!??!

Hi

I have the above brand of LAN on a ASROCK Z68 Extreme 4 Mobo.
Router: Netgear DG834G

The whole computer is about 7 months old and as per another recent thread it has a fresh install of Windows 7 64bit Pro. However since the reinstall an issue that also existed before continues to annoy me.

Namely, the internet at times drops in and out over a period of hours and then just works.
CAT 5 Cable has been replaced and tested in another machine and is fine.

There is another laptop, older Dell with Vista on the network (wired) that has no issues, everytime my PC drops I check it and 9 times out of 10 its still working.

I just upgraded the latest driver from here

Broadcom.com - Ethernet NIC NetLink Driver Downloads

Whilst I prefer Firefox, i normally solve the issue by opening Explorer and using its Diagnose tool. Quite often it will say ' The default gateway is not available'

One bit of info, it also continously says I am on a ' Unidentified network' and ' Public Network' despite it being a simple home wired (NO wifi i switched it off) LAN. How do you change it back to HOME network? sometimes the Public Network is in blue and you can click it and tell it yet again to be HOME but other times its not in blue or clickable to change.

Surely there is something we can do other than put a separate LAN card in a slot.
