Failed to locate necessary table(s) to make adjustments HP dc5000 SFF


hello

I decided to install Windows7 Home Premium on my HP dc5000 SFF. it installed fine but every time it reboots, I get an error that says...

"FATAL ERROR: Failed to locate necessary table(s) to make adjustments. Press any key to continue booting"

This only happens when using the "restart" mode. if I use "shut down" and let the computer turn completely off, it will start with no errors!

I've never seen anything like this and not able to find anything on Google or other boards

Does anyone have any suggestions

THANK YOU!

I got a request for help that deals with Pivot Table. That is out of my area of knowlege, so I figured I would ask the ones that seem to know all....

Can more than 4 worksheets be linked into a single pivot table successfully?

The situation is 15-20 workbook tabs that relate to outside legal vendors. Would like to create pivot table(s) that summarizes these tables by client (Metro Transit, ES, etc.) being charged the Outside Legal expense.

Thanks,
Chuck




I was able to get Virtual PC and XP Mode installed on a Win7 Professional machine, but have failed to get the user's printer, an HP Photosmart, to install. I downloaded the XP install package for the printer from the HP website, but the install fails at the point it asks for the USB cable from the printer to be plugged into the PC. Any suggestions?




I found corrupted system files, but it appears that the hard disk is fine. I executed chkdsk and no bad sectors.
Just looked into this on event viewer-

With the release of yet more data showing Windows 8's dismal performance in the marketplace, we have to ask: Is Windows 8 failing to gain traction because it sucks, or because there's no demand for it? That is a key question that must be on the minds of the execs at Microsoft right now, but it's a question that may also impact anyone else who makes software on a timed version release scheduled ...

DialUp Networking fails to connect to the I S P after installing SP2 for XP

Dial Up was working fine prior to installing SP2 for XP. Now I am unable to
connect except by opening Outlook Express and clicking on Send and Receive.
As soon as I click that tab, the DialUp connection dialog comes up and goes
ahead with the connection successfully.
Was it wrong to select the option to hide hide My Network Places during
installation? Could that have caused the disabling of DUN connection
functionality?

Hello!

I posted this problem on 8/14/04 and it seems to have baffled the folks on
the public.windowsxp.general newsgroup. I thought I'd try again here.

After about July 14, 2004, my Scheduled Tasks have failed to run in XP Pro.
There is a hotfix (KB 812960) that I downloaded and installed that did not
fix the problem, even though I have the exact symptoms described in the
article. The scheduled tasks do not run, nor can I run them manually by
using right-click, Run. I have the log below of what happens when trying to
start a Scheduled Task.

[ ***** Most recent entry is above this line ***** ]

The first attempt to start a task by right-click, Run, or by letting it
reach the scheduled time, results in the "0x80070006: The handle is invalid"
error. The second attempt to start it gives the "The attempt to log on to
the account associated with the task failed" error and then "Could not
start" shows up in the Scheduled Tasks window status column.

If I copy the task properties, i.e., the Run command line from the task's
properties page, and paste it into Start, Run, or into a batch file, then
the task runs just fine.

The account used is a local admin account, all service packs are installed
(not sp2 yet), the Task Scheduler service is running, and I have checked the
passwords for all tasks. They are all there and are correct for the admin
account in use.

An interesting thing just happened when I tried to right-click, Run any of
the tasks. As usual the task would not run. If I tried again within five
seconds, the tasks ran fine. If I killed the task, then waited about fifteen
seconds or more, then tried again, the task would not run. If I tried again
within five seconds of that attempt, the tasks run fine. If I again waited
more than a few seconds, the attempt failed again.

See the log below. As you can see, the first attempt failed, then four
seconds later the second attempt succeeded and took three seconds to
complete, then fifteen seconds after the successful run started, it again
failed to start. This pattern goes for all my scheduled tasks (most are
backups to a DVD). I set up the cescript.txt task (a text file on my
computer) just to test if the tasks would start.

Why would the task run if I tried it within five seconds of a failed
attempt?

I have an MS Access database that has a linked table. For various reasons the location where the database and linked table is stored changes. Is there a way to store the linked table so that I don't have to go in and update the location in the linked table manager? Like can the linked table be in the same folder as the accde file and it find the links?

Thanks




Hi. Sorry i am making my first database and have run in to a bit of trouble. (i don't know much about this prog at all)
It is for a photographic studio, there is a table of customers. Linked to the customers, are the tables inquirys, accounts,sessions, orders, children etc. I have made a form so that we can easily see all the details/orders etc when a customer name/number is entered.

although it would be great to show a table-style subform for all the sessions for the current customer, there are 3 or 4 types of sessions (weddings, model shoot, portraits etc.) which will need different information and hence different tables.

My question is: can anyone tell me how i can get it to list each session for a customer in one table. Even if it was from one table and one of the fields specified "wedding" or "portrait" and there were buttons which popped up their record, that would be fine.

For the same db, (and its a similar problem). the data flow is : a customer is created -> and inquiry is created, the inquiry specifys where the session will be "wedding" or "portrait" -> an entry is made in the "wedding sessions" table or "portrait sessions" table appropriately. my second question is: how do i make it so that when the user presses the button for turning an inquiry into a session entry, it reads the feild on the inquiry named "session type" and from that, it decides whether it makes a new "wedding session record" or "portrait..."
file attached (probably wont help)

thanks in advance




This is an odd problem, but I'll guess that someone has seen this! This particular system is a Dell Latitude d820, 2 GB RAM running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit. It has Office Standard 2007 installed. Tonight Outlook decided to go sideways and will not load. The other parts of Office (Word, Excel, etc) appear to work well. The initial message Outlook displays is: "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window". I did a system repair, both with the diagnostic tool and with the original install disk. I got a on-time display of the following message after the "repair":

"An extension failed to initialize. Cannot open file extend.dat. The file may not exist, you may not have permission to open it, or it may be open in another program. Right click the folder that contains the file and then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder."

So, I'm not sure where extend.dat is located. If it's in 'UsersBob HarrisLocal Settings' I've got a problem because in Win-7 I've yet to determine how to access that folder with the operating system. No matter what I do I get an "Access Denied" message.

I could uninstall Office and reinstall, but I'm not sure that will work either.

Wow! Any thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated.




I just replaced my C: drive with a Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1Tb drive - about two weeks ago. Initially, everything appeared to work fine except .......

Occasionally on bootup, I get the message "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device." This happens before Windows starts and may happen if I am doing my normal system startup from Hibernate or if I am doing a complete start from a shutdown. I would estimate it happens about once in every four or five starts.

This is on a desktop Acer Aspire M5620 running Win 7 that is an upgrade from Vista (the original OS). I have two hard drives, both WD. The original C: was a Hitachi and I added a WD Caviar Green 1.5 Tb, then about two weeks ago, I replaced the Hitachi with another WD but this time a Caviar Black. The replacement was done by cloning the Hitachi onto the WD then expanding the sector to fill the drive. As I said, everything appeared to go fine except for this occasional boot error.

I have searched the web and found a lot of speculation about what might cause this problem. Most cases seem to be a failed drive so I speculate that my case must be the new drive failing to spin up or an intermittent faulty boot sector on the new drive.

Can anyone confirm this and is there a way to repair the boot sector short of a reinstall of Win 7.

BTW, in every case where this has happened, a hard shutdown (press and hold the Power button) has resulted in a successful Shutdown and a subsequent press of the Power button initiates a successful Boot. The really surprising part is that the successful Boot is usually a successful Restart from Hibernate even though the system is coming from a complete hard shutdown - although the initial problem was a failure to startup from Hibernate.

Anyway, my question is, can I, and should I, attempt a boot repair or should I conclude the new drive is faulty and is failing to spin up occasionally? The latter case will make it necessary for me to return the drive and that must be done soon. I still have the original Hitachi untouched from when I did the clone so I can easily switch back. It was replaced because it ran very hot (60C) but it ran without any problems.




Hello,

I have the following macro which changes the CurrentPage based on what is in cell A1 for TWO different pivot tables:

Sub Testing()
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable2").PivotFields ("Expense Category"). _
CurrentPage = Sheet1.Range("A1").Value

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable3").PivotFields ("Expense Category"). _
CurrentPage = Sheet1.Range("A1").Value
End Sub

I'd like to have the macro automatically run when cell A1 is changed. I'm trying to avoid having the user change the CurrentPage on BOTH pivot tables (or they might forget to change both pivot tables). Does anyone know how I need to tweak the macro to make it do this? Thank you!!




I'm going bonkers trying to get a list of dBaseIII tables from an ODBC connection. The application is supposed to enable a user to browse to a file/folder/http and locate a database. Once I have a database, the theory goes, I can offer a list of tables, and from any one table, I can offer a list of fields.

I'm quite happily learning about ODBC from Control panael, and would like to standardise my approach on that. My approach seems to break down when I switch from a single-file-as-database (e.g. Access/MDB, LotusNotes/NSF) to a multiple-file-in-folder-as-database (as in Act!6/*.dbf).

The first two examples work fine. The application finds the database file, explores the tables, fields etc.

The third example doesn't do what I want it to do - I can't make it find the *.dbf in the folder, as a set of table names.

I could, of course, revert to DIR/FSO etc. to list the *.dbf from the folder, but I feel that ODBC drivers should be capable of doing this for me.

Have I overlooked a basic design feature somewhere? Should I continue to go bonkers, or is ODBC absolutely NOT the right tool for a collection of DBF in a single folder?

Here I am with LotusNotes 'connect to server using Lotus NotesSQL Driver
Set Aconn = New ADODB.Connection
Aconn.ConnectionString = "Driver={Lotus NotesSQL Driver (*.nsf)};Database=" & strDatabase & ";"
Aconn.Open
'''
''' Open the database schema to query the list of tables
'''
Set rst = Aconn.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables)
'''
''' Loop through the list and process each table name
'''
frmTables.lbTables.Clear
Do While Not rst.EOF
frmTables.lbTables.AddItem (rst("TABLE_NAME"))
rst.MoveNext
Loop

Here I am with MSAccess 'connect to server using Microsoft Access Driver
Set Aconn = New ADODB.Connection
Aconn.Open "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=" & strDatabase & ";"
'''
''' Open the database schema to query the list of tables
'''
Set rst = Aconn.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables)
'''
''' Loop through the list and process each table name
'''
frmTables.lbTables.Clear
Do While Not rst.EOF
frmTables.lbTables.AddItem (rst("TABLE_NAME"))
rst.MoveNext
Loop

Here I am with Act6(*.dbf folder). The connection appears to work, but the rst is empty - .Count = zero 'connect to server using Microsoft dBASE Driver
Set Aconn = New ADODB.Connection
Aconn.ConnectionString = "Driver={Microsoft dBASE Driver (*.dbf)};Dbq=" & strDatabase & ";"
Aconn.Open
'''
''' Open the database schema to query the list of tables
'''
Set rst = Aconn.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables)
'''
''' Loop through the list and process each table name
'''
frmTables.lbTables.Clear
Do While Not rst.EOF
frmTables.lbTables.AddItem (rst("TABLE_NAME"))
rst.MoveNext
Loop

(later) This post introduced me to the concept of a catalogue. The code below works for a set of *.CSV in a single folder; however I still can't migrate this code to a set of *.dbf in a single folder. 'connect to server using Microsoft Text Driver
Set Aconn = New ADODB.Connection
Set Aconn = New ADODB.Connection
Aconn.ConnectionString = "Driver={Microsoft Text Driver (*.txt; *.csv)};" & "Initial Catalog=" & strDatabase & ";"
Aconn.Open
'''
''' Open the database schema to query the list of tables
'''
Set rst = Aconn.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables)
'''
''' Loop through the list and process each table name
'''
frmTables.lbTables.Clear
Do While Not rst.EOF
' Call TableChecker(Aconn, rst("TABLE_NAME"), docResult)
frmTables.lbTables.AddItem (rst("TABLE_NAME"))
rst.MoveNext
Loop

(later still) Got it! No I haven't; this code is suspect] 'connect to server using Microsoft dBASE Driver
Set Aconn = New ADODB.Connection
Aconn.ConnectionString = "Driver={Microsoft dBase Driver (*.dbf)};DBQ=" & strDatabase & ";"
Aconn.Open
'''
''' Open the database schema to query the list of tables
'''
Set rst = Aconn.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables)
'''
''' Loop through the list and process each table name
'''
frmTables.lbTables.Clear
Do While Not rst.EOF
frmTables.lbTables.AddItem (rst("TABLE_NAME"))

When I switched on the PC this morning there was a popup from Comodo about a new local area network. I was requested to give it a name and authorise it.

As I have not created any new networks, and my wife wouldn’t know how to, it struck me as dangerous and so I blocked it. This was a mistake, as it was then impossible to access email or the internet.

After a fruitless period spent trying to amend Comodo - it’s too technical for me – it seemed that the solution would be to remove and reinstall it. But the uninstall failed with the message ‘Network Error. C|WINDOWSInstallerCFP_Setup.msi’. Attempts with Control Panel’s Add & Remove programmes, Absolute Uninstaller and Comodo’s own uninstaller all failed.

However, part of the programme had been removed, as the icons on desktop and task bar had gone and it was now possible to access the internet. This enabled me to get on with some work for an hour or so, hoping that the router and Avira premium would protect me, as clearly Comodo was not fully functional. Something called Geek Buddy had been added and kept unsuccessfully trying to update.

Returning to the problem, another attempt to remove the firewall failed, so it seemed that as it was not functioning fully it might be possible to install ZoneAlarm as a temporary measure. This was a disaster!

All went well until ZA scanned the pc and failed, leaving two partially installed firewalls. ZA and Geek Buddy both kept asking for an error report, which could not be sent as internet access was lost. Plus a series of pop-ups said Clipmagic had encountered a problem and would close, followed by similar from Secunia PSI, explorer.exe, Netgear and others.

By this stage the PC was unusable, it was impossible to access my files to see how to enter Safe Mode, but I seemed to remember it was P5 or P6. My guess of P5 was correct, I succeeded in removing ZA but not Comodo.

Internet access was restored and the PC usable, just the question of how well Comodo functions. There seem to be two options;

1. Geek Buddy finally installed and updated once ZA was removed. The terms state there is an annual fee, without specifying the amount. It would also involve the rip off charge that credit cards make on foreign currency exchanges. But I assume they would know how I should proceed.

2. An easier option would be delete Comodo from the programmes folder, but is this safe? A reinstall might mitigate any harmful effects, but I do not know.

Any suggestions gratefully received, as I’m not sure how secure the existing situation is. Certainly tomorrow I will be making several scans to see what I may have picked up in the meantime.

Hi,

I've rebuilt a friend's desktop, then tried to restore his OS partition with a DVD image set I created along with a Recovery Disc. It reported failure after going through all six discs. He has Home Premium x64.

When I first created this disc set, Windows reported success, and no errors during validation. His OS later became royally corrupted and failed to boot even in Safe Mode and after 2 rounds of Windows Repair. Severe overheating issues and onboard USB controller quirkiness dating back to a busted capacitor are why I now swapped his mobo and cpu, for starters. Prior to the rebuild, the desktop featured a ssd drive for his OS partition, configured as single-drive RAID, and a 3 hdd RAID 5 array for his data partition. For the new build, I added another hdd to the data array and reconfigured it as RAID 10; his ssd is again set as his OS partition, but I had to configure it as IDE this time (only 4 RAID-able SATA ports on the new mobo). The data partition now consists of four WD 500 GB 7200 rpm drives, for a 1 GB partition with 2 mirror drives; it used to be a 1 GB partition with 1 parity drive.

I performed extensive hardware testing btw. All hardware tests except extended RAM testing were performed and passed with PC-Doctor, Ubuntu (booted from CD) confirmed the SMART health of all drives is Healthy, and Windows Repair reported all hardware was good too. So hardware failure is very likely not an issue now.

Any ideas? I am most suspicious of the ssd's switch from RAID single drive to IDE at present, but cannot find any information online that addresses this. Does a system image include information that makes an image disc set dependent on whether IDE or RAID was used to control the drive(s)?

My friend has a HUGE amount of software and add-ons that would take weeks to reinstall from scratch; bad enough this image was created a year ago (I've impressed him with the need to image more often). He's also under time constraints to get his own business projects completed. So he really needs this image disc set to work, else he's pretty much screwed.

Thanks!
