I've just spent the last couple of hours stripping down my rig,for a clean but mainly to do something about the cable management.But since rebuilding it 2 problems have arisen.problem 1 On start up I'm getting the message boot manager is missing .I go through the steps CTL>ALT>DEL then DEL to enter bios and select the drive to boot from in advanced mode F7 (only one drive is there on the initial bios screen where the drag and drop option is)Problem 2 once I've logged in it is only showing 2 of my 3 hard drives.I'm using a z77 mobo 60g ssd boot,256g ssd and a 1tb mechanical.When I go into Computer management the 2 of the 3 drives are visible there.
I built my computer years ago and since then have not touched it due to having a macbook for school. I want to upgrade my computer but can't find my Window's 7 cd. If i replace the motherboard, cpu, graphics card, and ram, but keep my old hard drives will my OS still be available? My knowledge about this is slim at the moment until i brush up on everything
I have begun experiencing random shutdown with my system. I recently re-built my first build adding an SSD, new motherboard, graphics card and memory. [code] I ran the SF Dx tool and included screen shots of CPU-Z tabs and CBS.log filtered for just the SR (system restore) points from the sfc /scannow. Included all files in the zipped Seven Forum folder attached.random shutdowns-periodically I will return to my computer and find a screen asking for a boot drive. hitting space will not work.i have to shut down using the power on button.Usually it boot into windows after the first time.Occasionally I have to power on and off a couple of times.screen bland for 10 to 20 seconds. Occasionally while switching between applications using Alt-Tab the screen will go blank for up to 20 seconds.It recovers on its own with a message saying my GPU shut down and was restarted. I have never actually seen a BSOD (am I in the wrong forum?) but would like to fix these problems.For a time I thought these were problems with my SSD and GPU but when I ran sfc and saw the number of files that weren't repaired I started having concerns.Oh and by the way I have run a variety of diagnostics on the SSD and GPU and nothing was revealed.
No matter what compiler I elect to use (I have tried codeblocks, bloodshed dev C++, visual studio c++ express 2005, visual studio 2008 & 2010 and eclipe [java]) when i attempt to rebuild a project after executing it once, it will link and compile, but and error will appear stating that the compiler could not open the executable to re-write it. I have already attempted the following:
** I have no Antivirus running (windows has a warning stating it). ** I have no firewall running (windows also has a warning about it). ** I have checked process explorer and no Antivirus or firewall is running. ** I have checked process explorer and no other process is attempting to use that executable. (the program terminates from process explorer at the same time it stops running in command prompt) ** I have followed all necessary instruction to make sure cygwin was removed from my computer.
My program will compile & run without any errors (it does this to any code i try to compile, even hello world [so it isn't a coding error]. Its may be a compiler error because it happens with c++ and java [same problem from command line too) or its an ide problem as this happens with multiple ide.
I am going to take a guess and say I either a have a rogue av or firewall (Windows Defender) issue that I can not seem to track down and shut down or windows keeps accessing the project directory (process explorer did show a process name "system" was accessing that project directory). I am the admin for the computer, and the only account on it. I really don't want to dual boot linux just to develop programs.
my netgear wireless modem and wireless network were renamed and all the passwords reset. Hard reset to recover. I am still getting browsers redirected daily. All three browsers each will give message that setting have been changed when opened. IE will say search setting have been corrupted and mandate Bing. Internet Options will be reset to custom levels without a reboot. I have installed AVG 2012 paid. No scan from various scanners will show an infected file except some cookies. AVG rescue disk scan found 13 password protected files that were renamed. Broke AVG and required a reinstall. Password protected files were back by the end of the day. AVG says there should be NO password protected files in their sub-directories during a rescue scan. Their solution is a wipe and reinstall.What is the safest process of doing the HD wipe and reinstall? Just plugging the thumb drive in got me all this grief. Is reinstalling files from the DVD the same process? If i try to access my old files am i opening myself to reinfection?
I have Toshiba Dynabook that I bought in Japan. It originally had Vista on it, but recently I yanked the hard drive out and replaced it with a new one and installed windows 7 on it. I installed all the drivers it required using driver max and windows update, but it keeps freezing randomly. I ran the disk error check and no change and I tweaked my boot up to only run needed programs. I'm pretty sure it's not an overheating issue because it will run for hours when installing the os. I've already spent more time than I wanted to invest in this and am ready to smash the computer.
I have win 7 running on RAID 1 using 2 Seagate 750GB hdds...My motherboard is an ASUS P5 series with an onboard Intel Raid chip.So apparently one of the drives went dead and since it's RAID 1 no problem right? Just replace the disk and it will auto rebuild... Problem is, this thing happened just as i was about to step out of my house for a week long vacation... I thought i'd get a new drive when i got back and shutdown the pc to save on power while i was away...Fast forward a week, so i boot up the computer and the Intel Raid boot sequence shows that i have a degraded drive... No biggie... I thought i'd boot it up first and replace the degraded drive later... What i didn't notice was that Intel Raid controller had designated another one of my existing drives as a spare and marked it for auto rebuild in Windows...So, upon booting into Windows, Intel Rapid Storage starts rebuilding on the wrong drive... So now i have 1.5TB HDD data that has been wrongly auto rebuilt... I've sinced replaced the degraded drive and the array is back to normal but my data drive is mush... I tried using Active Undelete and it's able to scan the files and recover but the files are corrupted...
My desktop started having icon issues, so I did a little reading up and saw that it could help by deleting the iconcache.db file. I did so, and now my icons are completely gone. I can still see the text under the icons and can still access the programs, however they are running slower than normal.Also, on a related note, nothing happens when I click the start menu button.I am running Windows 7 Home Pro 64 bit. I have tried all the fixes to no avail, even launched in safe mode.
I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.
I recently installed 64-bit Windows 7 on my new computer I built a few days ago and I have no clue as to why it only shows my memory at 4GBs. My BIOS show the same thing, however CPU-Z says I have the appropriate 6GBs. The "Maximum Memory" option is unchecked in msconfig, by the way. Does anyone know what may be causing this issue?
I have a Toshiba Satellite, A305 S6905 with a New Install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.Bios was updated to latest 2.20 version. I put two new, matched 2 GB ram modules in it. It does not show but 2 GB installed even in the Bios. I checked both modules by putting each one seperately in the primary ram slot and both were showing up as good. I even put the old 2 GB and 1 GB modules I had before under Vista and it still only shows 2 GB installed.It only shows 2 GB installed and 1.87 useable..It boots OK and seems to run fairly smoothly but I have not put it to the test under some memory hog programs yet.
On windows 7 I have the CPU usage plug in, added when I became convinced that more was happening than I thought. Although nothing is set in shedule processes, the 4 cores of the CPU are often going mad, with 70-80% of the 3 GB memory being used... Is there a program which tells me what the bl..... machine is doing. Perhaps a permanant window on the bottom of the screen? It is so frustrating as it slows down internet explorer and generally seems to be more interested in its own thing than my requests.
I previously had a computer with Vista on it. I purchased a new computer with Windows 7 and installed MS Office 2010. I transferred all my files from my old computer to my new computer and now when I go to insert pictures into my website, the pictures are not showing up as thumbnails so I can view all at the same time. They just show that little icon.I have went through a lot of the threads in response to this problem and have tried them all without any success. Could it be old settings that transferred over and are not compatible.
i have a dell studio 1535 with windows7 ultimate x32. For 5or6 months everything was ok but yesterday when i booted my laptop the welcome screen didn't show anything. No users. I rebooted it but still the same. Also when i log in in safe mode all the users show up what to do ?
i work on Dell, Windows 7, 64 bit. i use to work with my HDD perfectly until once my computer booted but my HDD did not show up... when i feel it i can see that it is working but the light isnt even on?i tryed pluging it in to other computers it worked fine but it just does not work on my computer?
After the welcome screen there's only a "Other User" and nothing else. My account isn't shown. I tried to log in through Other User but it's blocked with a Username and Password. I'm scared to loose all my stuff I have on there. I try to get on Safe mode to System Restore but the "Other User" still pops up and my account still isn't shown so I can't access my account(I'm using a different laptop to post this). I don't remember ever putting on a "Other User" account,. I don't want to loose any of my items I have on this PC. How can I remove this "Other User" and get my account back without loosing everything?
after setting up brand new pc and instaling adobe acrobat 9 pro. my e boooks are not showing the cover images in my folder . they used to in fact the only way the covers show is when i click open in acrobat and a new page opens for me to select a file, then they show but the images dont stay . is there a check box for searches or displaying content i have forgotten . ps its good to be back
I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and when I connect an external HDD sometimes it shows and sometimes it doesnt. I work a lot with external HDD's plugged into one or all of my front USB ports and there doesnt seem to be any consistency to when it shows in the computer tree. Between this and autoplay not working it feels like Windows 7 has taken an enormous leap backwards.
I have been fiddling around with codec packs and finally found 1 that is ideal for me (Codec Pack All in 1 1.6.3)Everything works perfectly except for mkv thumbnails which I found another way around it by installing Icaros 2.0 The only problem remaining is that .mp4 files are not able to display subtitles in WMP 12, they work perfectly well in VLC but for aesthetic reasons I prefer WMP.Is there anyway to make this work with some sort of registry tweak without having to install additional codec packs such as Shark 007 which even though it states to work without any mess, it ruins all my file types associations and subtitle display.SO to summarize I am looking for a registry hack that can force WMP 12 on Windows 7 x64 show subtitles?
So the problem is that my WiFi somehow doesn't show up on my devices. However, the internet works perfectly fine through ethernet cable for my PC. All my other devices such as my phone and laptop dont see the router even though I have enabled wifi through the router control panel. I also have reset the router manually, updated to recent firmware. My ISP said it might be my computer so I disconnected the cable from the pc to the router and hardwI thought it was my router's problem so I exchanged it for the same model (Netgear N300) but the problem still exists. I went back to ask the computer store to test the router's wifi and they said that it worked fine...
