Lenovo T500 Freezes At Startup When Updating To Newest

Jul 21, 2009

I have a big problem with my lenovo T500. I installed Windows 7 RC x64 to my lenovo T500 (2082-53G) and when I install the ATI catalyst beta driver x64 v9.6 from ATI's homepage, my computer freezes at startup (some activity on HD but I can't move my mouse and many processes faile to start at boot).

Problem occurs only when Windows 7 beta driver for system interface or ricoh multicard reader is installed because it worked ok until I installed those drivers. I'm not the only one facing this problem: Lenovo T500 Thinkpad - WDM Radeon 3650 Driver Update Causes Screen to Freeze.

No Wireless Adapter - Lenovo T500

Nov 20, 2011

A couple weeks ago, my computer (Lenovo T500) stopped recognizing wireless networks. I went to update the wireless adapter driver, and saw that there was no wireless adapter shown in the device manager. I downloaded the driver straight from Lenovo, but there's still no adapter showing up.

Lenovo T500 + VGA Output = 1920 X 1080

Oct 20, 2009

I have a 42 inch Sharp LCD TV, and a Lenovo T500 laptop running windows 7 as my main OS. I use VGA to connect to my TV. Any attempt to display 1920 by 1080 on my TV results in my TV telling me to switch to 1600 by 1200 because the video mode is not supported. 1920 by 1080 works fine on windows XP, same machine, same TV.

Games would not run well at 1920 by 1080, so I've ignored it up till now (because I tried several times and cannot get it to work). I like 1920 by 1080 for writing code though. Any way to fix this?

video card:

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650

Switchable graphics is currently disabled.

Windows 7 version: release candidate (it's free) (32 bit, yay for unused RAM)

Windows 7 Startup Loop After Updating WMP Plugin Via Firefox

Jun 25, 2011

Yesterday my computer "crashed" right after updating the windows media player pulgin via firefox. Since then I have got the infamous startup loop.

I have tried the following:
- Startup repair
- Safe mode
- Last known good configuration
- Startup repair disk
- Sfc scannow(running for the 4th time right now)
- Chkdisk
- Rebuilt the boot directories
- Unplugged everything but the drive windows is on

After rebuild the boot drives is the only time any prgoress was made, now it actually attempts to startup and hits the startup repair following the windows animated logo. I cannot locate my actual windows 7 disk otherwise at this point I would have just ran the repair from there or fresh installed.

HP Laptop Suddenly Freezes - CPU Usage 70 Percent While Updating AntiVirus

Jun 30, 2011

I have the same problem on my HP laptop, suddenly all system freezes and I cannot do anything except hold shut down button. I have monitored my CPU performance on startup and it goes crazy when my avast anti-virus is updating almost about 70% of cpu usage.

Frequent Windows 7 Freezes On New Lenovo G570?

Jun 14, 2012

I got a new Lenovo G570 which has been frequently freezing up, requiring a restart. Frequency varies from every 20 minutes to a few hours, in a wide variety of states and activities, sometimes even while installing updates at shutdown. Computer use seems to make it slightly worse. It can sit for 8 hours or more without problem if nothing is done right after boot, or if firefox is just up and sitting there. With Windows Media Player going, it lasts about 4 or 5 hours maybe. This is with me not interacting with it at all. When I do, it lasts much longer if I use the touchpad and leave the USB mouse unconnected.

I'm using Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit, OEM from Lenovo. I reinstalled it once using the system recovery utility from Lenovo, OneKey Recovery.

Performance is good right up until the point of the freeze, when everything immediately halts. Sounds will become a (near?) constant tone. The computer does not automatically restart or show any error screen.

ETA: I also ran it in safe mode for a day, simultaneously using WMP, Open Office, and USB mouse, and there were no problems.

Windows 7 Freezes On Lenovo Y430 Ideapad

Oct 30, 2009

I installed Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on my Lenovo ideapad Y430 (which came with Vista Home Premium 32-bit). It worked fine for a few hours. However, it now freezes up within 1 minute after I sign on after rebooting. The cursor stops moving, Task Manager won't come up, no disk activity, etc. Booting in Safe Mode works fine, so I'm thinking it's an issue related to a driver or service that doesn't load in Safe Mode. Event Viewer doesn't reveal much of use; only the fact that I needed to power off without shutdown. Vista still runs fine on another partition. How I can get Windows 7 running again (e.g., by identifying and removing/updating the offending driver/server, if that's what's causing the problem)?

Where To Find Newest .msu Version Of Internet Explorer 9

Jun 3, 2011

I am looking to integrate IE9 into a retail image of Windows 7. I've already done this once successfully, however the version of IE9 that I have is outdated. If you peruse the internet, you'll quickly see several direct links to IE 9's msu version directly from Microsoft, but these are all release candidate when installed. I'm looking for the latest RTM, since it won't have to be immediately upgraded after re-imaging, which completely defeats the purpose. While it isn't 100% supported by Microsoft, it isn't illegal to my knowledge. I still must have a valid license key to use any of it. If for some reason it goes against the TOS, please delete this post, but alert me as to why, precisely it had to be done so that I can avoid it later.

Firefox Deleted All Bookmarks When Updated To Newest Version (v11.0)?

I updated firefox to the newest version (11.0) and it asked me to import bookmarks from Internet Explorer, but I only used internet explorer once (to install firefox when I first got my computer, the only thing IE is good for) and I dont have any bookmarks in IE anyway. So when firefox started all my previous bookmarks got deleted. I can not remember the majority of the websites addresses and I need some of them for research papers and school work. Is there any way to recover the bookmarks or am I screwed?

When i went to do the fresh install, the install manager would not give me the option of install the catalyst control center even though i uninstalled it. i have been looking through various fourms for solutions, but i only found one that seemed appropriate but it failed. it was the solution of looking in windowsassembly and uninstalling the ATI related products with the public key code of 90ba70f846762.

Computer Freezes After Startup?

Aug 16, 2011

My Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop freezes after startup. This randomly started one day after I had normally gotten on the computer and decided to boot it back up. The computer starts up normally, and all the icons load up, but the connection bar has a circle on it. I can click on things, but nothing happens, it just highlights things. And when I hit control alt delete, the computer freezes and a few minutes later, it pulls up this thing that says the logon process was unable to display security and logon options when CTRL+ALT+DELETE was pressed.If the Operating System does not respond press ESC or restart the computer by the power switch In windows 7.

PC Freezes Shortly Upon Startup?

Mar 10, 2012

Shortly after starting up and logging in, one or more programs freezes (usually Firefox or Skype), but eventually even the taskbar will freeze up. When I tried to launch Task Manager, it doesn't run, and when I try to shut down it doesn't work either. The only thing I can do is a hard reset via the power button, and then enter safe mode. I scanned my computer with Avast!, Microsoft Security Essentials and MalwareBytes. All of them came up negative I then posted my problem to Reddit, and some users suggested me to run ComboFix (I did not know it was such a powerful program, and they seemed reasonably experienced). I ran it, and it actually fixed my problem for a while. But now I'm back where I started. What's wrong with

Windows 7 64x Freezes After Startup

May 10, 2012

Basically what is happening is after 1h (and event viewer says every 1h 1m the system had to restart when I was asleep) my mouse and keyboard stop working and then the computer freezes over about 1 minute. Basically the active program will freeze, like firefox, then the desktop will freeze, then the mouse/KB wont work.

i5 4.0Ghz (Overclocked)
4GB DDR3 1600Mhz Ram (6GB page file)
6970 XFX x2 in Xfire
120GB M4 Crucial SSD
500GB WD External HDD
850 Corsair PSU
Gigabit Mobo

I recently installed Morrowind Overhaul 2.0 and it would freeze and give me a "low memory" error in an error box when I was trying to set that up. I'd still be able to ctrl alt delete to close it. This is around the time where the problem started. I used the Windows Memory Diag and it came up fine.I also have downloaded a lot of stuff recently and installed a lot of new programs. But I have scanned with MSE and Spybot 2x each (and am about to restart in safe mode w/ networking like a guide here said to and try Malwarebytes).I have also been unplugging External HDD constantly without ejecting but even with the HDD unplugged my computer crashes. I used Crystal Disk Info and HD Tuner and CHKDSK on both and they seem to work fine. HD Tuner is still checking my External atm though. When I woke up today my computer said there was a disk error but I dont remember the exact message and to push enter, this was before POST.

-Used CCleaner, Auslogics Registry Cleaner, Comodo System Cleaner,

-Dusted my computer to bring temps down and am running at around 36-44C idle on GPU + CPU.

-Did Windows Update

-Updated GFX to 12.4

-All Malware programs are constantly updated and I scan every few days

Ram failure?
HDD failing?
Virus?
Registry?

Its about time for a format anyway if I can't find the answer, but if its a virus or a hardware problem it will continue. Can virus infect a video file or music file or a game file? Like if I got a virus and had a clean video, could that video then be infected? Basically I want to know what I can keep if I do have a virus/worm/trojan.

[GRAPHICS] Windows 7 64-bit Freezes On Startup

Apr 2, 2011

My problem is that sometimes when I start up my computer (from both hibernation and shutdown), windows freezes(sort of) on startup. It will start up after quite some time and everything seem to be running in slow-motion. I can move the pointer and perform actions in 1-2 sec intervals with about 5-6 seconds between them.When starting up in safe-mode it will freeze totally upon loading the file CLASSPNP.SYS.At first I was concerned about some hardware malfunction, but since everything works fine on Ubuntu (dual-boot) I assume this is a software error.The only fix I've been able to apply is using system restore, but this may have to be done several times for the problem to disappear and takes forever since the computer is running in "slow-motion". Also sometimes when i leave the computer off for a day or two (or just use Ubuntu instead) it will boot up win7 just fine.Since the problem occurs quite randomly and without any warnings it's been quite hard to debug/gather information on the system while crashing, but here is what I have been able to figure out so far: * While problem occurs, both cpu cores are working at 95-99%. Processes(random ones) take turns on using 99%. * Screen will glitch heavily and message will appear in tray-bubble: "windows nvidia kernel mode driver stopped responding". Things i have tried: * Installing newest Nvidia graphics driver. * Installing older Nvidia graphics drivers. * Full format and fresh install of windows7. In the reliability monitor i was able to gather this information: * Problem: Windows failed to start because of missing system files Description: A recent driver installation or upgrade might have prevented Windows from starting.* Problem: Video hardware error Description A problem with your video hardware caused Windows to stop working correctly.

Windows 7 Freezes At Startup (32bit)

Apr 10, 2011

I installed Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit version about 2 months ago. In the beginning it worked just fine. But after a while it started to freeze during startup at win7 logo. I have to shut it down manually and after I turn it on again it works fine. Recently when I turned pc on it started checking my hdd and after that it would startup. I haven't had any BSOD at all. Today I noticed that my antivirus software AVG free won't start. So I tried to start it manually but it shows error "C:Program FilesAVGAVG10avgui.exe

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."The reason I switched to Win 7 is that when I had xp I used to get a lot of BSOD because of the graphic card drivers. I wasn't able to install them correctly.

Windows 7 Freezes Shortly After Startup?

Sep 26, 2012

I am assuming this is the best forum of this post.About two weeks ago, I was on the internet and my laptop froze, I forced shut and restarted the laptop, and was greeted with a black screen saying "Realtek Family Controller, Media test failure, check cable" Although I don't use an ethernet cable to use the internet (I use wireless), I plugged one in and windows started up normally. Fastforward to two days ago, I was watching a video offline and my laptop froze, plus made a loud noise. I forced a shut down, and restarted. But now I only have to turn the laptop on, and it just freezes for no reason. Loading Google Chrome, or just looking in my folders. Only way to use laptop is in Safe Mode!

Therefore I am using Safe Mode with networking to post this and using IE 8 aswell as Chrome makes it freeze even in Safe Mode. My Specs:AMD Athlon II P360 Dual core Processor 2.29GHzWindows 7 home PremiumRAM: 4.00GBFile System; NTFSapacity: 298 GB (Used 91.5 GB) I have also downloaded Malwarebytes and ran it, and there was no spyware/malware on my computer. I have also ran the Windows memory diagnostic, but when it says it will display, the results once it restarted, I get no results so I assume there was no problem.

Windows 7 Freezes A Few Minutes After Startup?

Jan 14, 2013

I am new to the forum and seeking help.I recently experienced a bad boot sector on my HDD and had to reinstall Windows 7 (x64). I then also installed Ubuntu 12.04. Since then, when I load up Windows, it will start up, load icons, gadgets etc, but then within a few minutes it will freeze and I have to do a hard reboot. Ubuntu doesn't do this. If I don't hard reboot I get a BSOD.I am pretty sure Windows was not a bad install or anything. I assume it's probably because Windows uses more resources than Ubuntu.Could the damaged hard drive cause a problem like this or can I assume I also have problems with the graphics card or the RAM?Windows freezes in normal mode and normal mode with low resolution. As far as I can tell it does NOT freeze in safe mode, unless I've just not been using it long enough. Does this sound like the sort of problem a driver could cause instead of a hardware problem?

i have a hp pavilion dv3 laptop, 13.3", which runs on windows 7. it has an intel core i5 and 4 gb of ram with 500 gb of memory. it's very new - i only bought it about a month ago, and up until a few hours ago it was running fine. it has been very fast and responsive, and i was careful to not download a load of junk or anything that might slow it down. i used it this morning and it was fine, but since i turned it on this afternoon it has suddenly begun running slowly. when i turn it on i can enter my password and get into my user account, and everything loads fine, but when i try to do anything it will just freeze up and refuse to respond. i can't even right-click and refresh, or click on the taskbar. i just get that little blue spinning circle to infinity.the laptop is running okay in safe mode, which i am in right now. i'm trying to rack my brains to remember what i could have done to mess it up, but nothing comes to mind. last night i downloaded aim, but that didn't seem to have changed anything this morning. when i used the laptop before it started freezing, all i did was watch a few Internet videos and then turn it off again.

when i realised it was freezing, the first thing i did was to turn it off and restart in safe mode. i went to control panel and removed the password to my user account (irrationally, i was getting paranoid about being locked out), which i hope didn't confuse the poor laptop. i then restored it to an earlier date 2 days ago, but it still froze about three minutes after turning it on, and my password was still enabled. after that i went to start > run > msconfig and disabled all the startup items, but the laptop still continued to freeze upon startup. then i unplugged the battery and just ran off the power switch, but it's still freezing! then i started to despair and tried to run a registry cleanup, but i figured it just looked like a scam or a virus so i decided otherwise. i use avast! free antivirus, and i ran a scan, but that didn't find anything.unfortunately, i live in a very hot, dusty country. recently quite a lot of dust was getting into the room where i keep my laptop. i was worried that the laptop might have been getting dust inside it. but i have another older laptop which doesn't seem to be affected at all?i did make backup discs when i first got the laptop, but i only want to use them as a very last resort.

Laptop Freezes Upon Startup Unless In Safe Mode?

Feb 2, 2011

My Toshiba laptop has been overheating lately. Looked online and saw that this is a common problem with Toshibas. As I currently live in Indonesia (from Tennessee originally) I dont know where to buy the spray cleaner things (yes, thats what I call them...lol i dont know the technical name or brand name.) So when it overheats I usually let it cool down for a bit then restart and just try and keep the bottom elevated so it can cool consistently.

Tonight it overheated and when I went to restart, it restarted normally until it got to the main screen. Things looked ok, but when I moved the mouse it moved for just a second and then everything froze. Not just the mouse, I tried hitting tab,etc to make things move but nothing would happen. Not even the trusty ctl-alt-del magic would happen. I restarted into safe mode and things are ok.

New HD / Windows 7 X64 Install Freezes On Startup - No Events

Dec 3, 2011

The "Starting Windows" freezes seem to me to be entirely arbitrary. Here's my installation notes to date. The line where it says "SYSTEM RESTORE" is the point at which I restored the computer to after installing some software and having the "Starting Windows" issue recur. I check the Event Viewer with every boot. The only Error and Critical events are (generally) Power events when I am forced to reboot manually due to a "Starting Windows" freeze.
