after reinstalling Windows 7(using USB) dvd drive does not appear in "My computer" anymore(Can't find it in Device manager it either). In addition when my notebook is booting I get DELL's warning that some drive can not be identified(and it does not state which), so I have to press Esc to skip that warning so I can successfully boot my windows 7 up.
My notebook's dvd drive don't inject any CD's/DVD's anymore. Seems like dead after reinstall.
I have had an expensive time with my computer recently but i am now beyond the brink and turning the tide of war to my favour.I have recently kitted my ailing PC out with a new SSD for the OS install.This is working great; i have just tonight had to plug in a brand new GFX card for my gaming pc.(My GFX card burned out due to overheating, so i have now got a new case and proper cooling)Basically, my secondary hard disk (Files Storage etc) is not working, when plugged into my sata port my computer hangs at the Windows Loading screen, also i cannot get into the BIOS.If i unplug the hard drive (Not SSD, 500GB Hitachi) my computer boots in 14 seconds, and the bios works fine.I have concluded my secondary hard disk may be broken.if i can fix it as i can barely afford to buy a new one (even knowing they are cheap).Basically if it had broken i would expect my PC would say so, seems to me that it is just waiting for a response and sitting around for hours to get it
My Seagate GoFlex 2 TB USB 3 drive has suddenly stopped working. When it happened, I was having many issues with Windows (for about 10 minutes and 3 reboots). It seems to have calmed down now but I am still having problems with USB devices. When I plug the external HD into the top USB ports (next to the wireless dongle for keybd/mouse), the keyboard stops working. In the system error logs I am getting this critical error: The driver DriverWUDFRd failed to load for the device RootSIDESHOW000. I am also noticing that I have an unknown device in my device manager. I am also having a message come up when I start the computer saying that Windows cannot connect to the Group Policy Controller. It says that it is timing out. [code]
Recently my computer has been force closing applications like Photoshop and Windows Explorer. It usually happens when I right click in Explorer or try to open anything in Photoshop. When it happens, a dialogue box comes up that says "Windows Explorer has stopped working" or "Adobe Photoshop has stopped working" Under the details it displays this information:
Problem signature: Problem Event Name:APPCRASH Application Name:Explorer.EXE Application Version:6.1.7600.16768 Application Timestamp:4d688122
Wifi on my laptop suddenly stopped working. It has full bars but I cannot access any websites in any browser (Chrome/Firefox). I also cannot access itunes store. I keep seeing a yellow exclamation mark appear on my wifi signal then it vanishes by itself.
The USB's stopped working on my PC. I recently purchased it about a month ago and I think something was installed or was added to the computer because it stopped working all of a sudden.

For nearly half of the .exe files I attempt to open, I get this stupid "---.exe has stopped working" (where --- represents the name of the file). The files I'm trying to open are not video game files, but rather program files.I am currently working on a 64-bit system. I have only had this machine for 2.5 weeks.
I left my Dell laptop running a Sophos anti-rootkit scan overnight. This morning I found six extra windows open, which looked like this: [code] which looks like six randomly generated letters for the application name. I'm not sure if this is anything to do with the rootkit scan I was running, but I'm a bit concerned by it. Does anyone have any ideas about this? I'm running Windows 7 Prof 64.
So i start the game up fine, single player works fine for abit, then when i want to play multiplayer as soon as the game starts and i move it will send me back to desktop with the windows message 'GTA IV has stopped working'It has been fine past couple of months.
My specs if it helps define problems etc:
AMD FX-4100 3.6Ghz Windows 7 64bit 4GB RAM 1600 1GB HD 7770 OC
installed logitech wireless k800 and trackball. upon installing logitech 'unifing' software (allows one USB dongle to control both devices) the numpad on my computer keybord stopped working. the k800 wireless keyboard is nonfunctional as well
fix a new Toshiba laptop which would not allow the installation of an HP PSC 1315 printer/scanner. After disabling all startups and services other than MS, succeeded in getting the drivers installed. Now I'm trying to clean the crap out of the computer, one of which is "Amazon Links". Will not uninstall from EITHER Programs and Features or Revo Uninstaller. Get the message that is the title of this post. 've seen many threads on the Web about this, but none that had a real answer. I would ordinarily try safe mode, but cannot find any folder with Amazon Links in it, so don't know where it is.
Yesterday my hyperlinks stopped working. So, for example, in Outlook where I can normally click a link within an email to go to the web page, I now can't (affecting all emails). I thought it might be an Outlook problem but today I notice there are other programs which should automatically go to a webpage which aren't functioning.I think I downloaded some dodgy software yesterday and uninstalled it, so almost certain that's what's caused the problem.I am using Win7, by the way.
I'm hoping fr soem input on a recent issue that I've started to encounter where Windows 7 'freezes' and my only option is a 'hard reset' via held power button and restart.This has only started happening in the last week or so, and seems to only (and nearly always) happen after I've shut down a game (one of several) running via Steam.The games themselves will work fine, but after I come back out to desktop/Steam then Windows will stop to respond after a couple of instructions. Ctrl-Alt-Delete will fail to bring up the Task Manager screen etc.
It began when my company's network suddenly wouldn't recognize my user/password to access the folders on the server. My network admin tried to reset my password and even created a new user for me. Inexplicably a new problem arose. Clicking icons on the desktop or the start menu stopped working. I found that opening the file location and clicking the .exe did work.The problem remained when logging in as the local administrator.I found that the problem occurs on all .LNK files.System Restore to a month ago had no effect. Am I mistaken in believing that this proves that the problem isn't in the registry? I did a full disk virus check using the ESET a/v software on the computer as well as with MalwareBytes. No effect.
Recently I began having issues with my alt keys in games. I use a razer lycosa keyboard, as well as an n52te gamepad. Using a gamepad as my main source of imput during gameplay, the alt key is extremely useful as it allows me to have a whole additional set of keybinds with the limited amount of keys the gamepad has in comparison to the keyboard.A few weeks back I was gaming and noticed that if i was holding alt, and trying to use my movement keys (wsad is how I have the gamepad setup) the a, s, and d keys would not move my character on the gamepad or keyboard. If I just press a, s, or d on the gamepad or the keyboard without holding alt, they all work properly. Strangely, alt + W works fine and will move my character forward, and it seems to be only the a, s, and d keys being affected..My first thought was that maybe somehow i had bound something to Alt + a, s, or d ingame so i made sure nothing was bound to those keys. On a side note, the easiest way to do this generally besides checking through manually would be to just bind said keys, and then change that bind to something else. On the keybind screen in games, Alt + a, s, or d would have no effect, as if it hadnt been pressed, and would still be awaiting imput as to what key to bind.
I am running my games as administrator on a windows 7 x64 system, nothing running besides the game client. Multiple virus scans on the machine to make sure malware isnt the cause. Razer lycosa drivers installed and up to date from razer's website, same with the n52te, and i cant think of anything installed recently within the time that the problem suddenly started occurring.Although I initially noticed this problem appearing in games, it is also within windows itself. I guess theres a chance the gamepad/keyboard are going bad...but i had this problem occur a few months back and it seemed to magically fix itself, so i never had to persue it any further. Also the fact that they keys by themselves work properly on the keyboard and pad, including alt, but that when used in combination its as if theyre not even being pressed.
Both USB ports at my laptop (Toshiba Satellite C650, Windows 7 home premium, SP1, x64) stopped working after plugging in and unplugging several Garmin Forerunner 305 watches in a row. Everything looks all right in the device manage (no exclamations marks). I have reinstalled everything that has something to do with USB in the device manager, several times. Updated BIOS and used Windows update to get all the latest drivers and fixes.I have taken out the battery and let the computer "rest" for several hours without any power supply.I have tried to do some changes in registry key according to these instructions: USB ports suddenly stopped working in Windows 7 RC1 - Microsoft Answers (I managed to delete Lowerfilters).And of course I have tried with different USB-sticks, mouses, external hard drive etc. There is no power in the ports. When I plug in my Garmin Watch it does not charge.I installed and tried two registry cleaners (TweakNow RegCleaner 2011 and Glary utilities). After using them I got some hope back when I got a bit of reaction from one of the ports. A few times after plugging in something it started to install the driver but stopped immediately - telling me that the driver cannot be installed because the device is not plugged in (while it is).
I consider to do system restore to factory settings but before that I have to copy and save everything which is a bit complicated since non of the ports is working. If the restore to factory settings does not work, then I believe there is a problem with the hardware and I have to get the motherboard replaced.
got a tosh c650 laptop and just tried putting a cruser blade 16gb stick into one of its 2 usb ports.Now both ports dont do anything .Tried deleting all drivere and re installing (inc safe mode) but no joy...Have I damaged the MB?
well long story short i have been getting an annoying pop up saying taskmanager has stopped working for the last couple days , i have been unable to restore to a previous point and windows refuses to repair using the disk i installed with
I use a Toshiba laptop and I used to watch movies on it all the time until it stopped working. The drive shows there is no disc when there is a disc in there, the same disc I used before with no problems. I have ONE movie that will play and all the others wont work? I had a virus removed in your malware removal forum and they tried to help me with the dvd player but the end result was referring me to this forum
I am in a spot of bother since I have to give an important presentation and all of a sudden my USB ports (3) in HP pavillion dv6(running windows 7 64 bit) stopped working. I plugged my friend's ipod touch to charge from the computer and it did not work and after that none of the ports will work. I tried reinstalling the drivers,restarted the computer multiple times and even ran a virus scan but its of no use.Out of the 3 ports only one says "windows detected a problem with the device", the other 2 wont even say anything. I even checked at the registry keys to see if the USB ports are enabled and they were fine. My warranty expired this December so now I have to pay HP for any trouble shooting
when i wanted to play games there's "X has stopped working", it occured when in the middle of the game or when the game launch.It was also occured with my Chrome, Modem, and even my anti virus. I've tried to config the DEP but, it's still not working. And for the games, i'm sure i have the minimum requirements
That's what I'm getting for both SPORE and SPORE: Galactic Adventures.Are there any SPORE players here who have gotten this?Yes, I know, it was made for WinXP and Vista -- but WinXP and Vista users are getting the same error, even with the right OS and right video cards and drivers -- and altho' it's not officially supported, Windows 7 has been tested with SPORE: GA and works.I was playing both for three days with no problem, when I started getting this error - and three days seems to be the length of time for everyone who gets this problem, before the issue starts, almost like it's intentionally written into the game code.
