120GB Fujitsu Hard drive is set to IDE, but I've tried AHCI as well. 2GB Crucial RAM.Motherboard is ASUS M4A785-M, processor is OEM Phenom II x4 920. Using on board graphics. The only USB device that is plugged in is my mouse. I've tried 2 different ISOs and almost all the editions and I get the same result. I've tried installing the chipset driver along with it, but when I do it just freezes after it restarts.I'm starting to think that something isn't compatible with a 64 bit OS, even though everything is listed..
I'm trying to do a fresh clean install of Windows 7 x64 on a new harddrive (Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5") through a USB Key
CPU: Intel i5-2500k MSI P67A-C43 (B3)
Installing proceeds as normally, until it restarts at Configuring hardware....The resolution will change and then the error message "Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware" will pop up.I've changed my SATA settings in the bios to ACHI, RAID, IDE and tried installing multiple times under each option but no dice.I've tried loading Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver from the MSI website prior to the Windows installation, but its giving me an error message about the drivers not being signed.
I've recently gone out and bought 4 HDDs to run as a raid 10, now I am using my motherboards onboard fakeraid a ihc10r. The cables are fine and when I try and install windows 7 (pro 64x) onto each individual drive with raid and ahci turned off in bios windows installs just fine. Now when I raid the drives as raid 10 windows install can see the drive and even then I load the drivers just to be sure iastor.sys etc (I've tried with and without) the same thing happens every time after the first reboot I get about 10 minutes in and about 2 mins after the screen resolution is adjusted BOOM "windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer's hardware". I've also tried installing with 1 hdd plugged in, raid turned on in bios but no array setup and it also fails at the same point. It's pretty wierd.I did a memtest and it passed this, I also have the jmicron piece of garbage on my MB turned off. Furthermore the install proceeds when the SATA controller is in AHCI mode BUT not in raid mode.
I have been doing lot of reading and looking around but cannot seem to get past this problem. I recently bought a new HP laptop, i7 processor, Navidia GT6300M video card, 8 GB RAM. HP original windows come with so much bloatware and have so many problems that i want to do a fresh clean windows 7 install on the machine. So i got a bootable windows 7 USB drive, actually i downloaded windows 7 home premium from internet and used windows 7 usb tool to make usb drive. When i go install it, first i come to partition table, HP has four partitions, one system and one recovery and two other small ones. I have tried installing after removing all partitions and make just one system drive, i have also tried keeping the paritions and install on system drive. Every time it goes through the install, reboots, does get through updates and all and on the last part gives the above statement and then i cannot get anything to work. I am able to restreo back to factory using recovery discs so windows work that way.
I have installed windows 7 on many of these Lenovo G560's. They are standard from the factory. I had just setup this one particular laptop myself a couple months ago. Now the customer got "the problem" and upon attempting to wipe and reinstall win7 (the exact same OS/flavor, on the exact same hardware) now I receive the "error" saying windows setup cannot configure windows on this hardware.
it's like it gets most of the way thru the basic install, and the harddrive has all the basic files on it. But setup just cannot continue. I Know all about new hard drives, the 4k-thing, that has nothing to do with this, unless some virus is causing a "hardware" problem. Or maybe it is a bios issue? Bios corruption? I can't even reinstall / update bios unless windows is on it. And now I can't finish the win7 install. I have one of these lenovo's as my own laptop here/now typing this on. I don't have a problem reinstalling win7 on it.
I have tried installing from DVD, from a usb stick, from the hard drive itself (copying files to a partition on the hard drive) no go. I've tried changing BIOS settings for the hard drive from AHCI to "Compatible" (there are only these two options) and made no difference. Why (or What) the change? What causes this on standard hardware that normally would work? Is it probably broken hardware? (a bad drive controller?)
I was recently using my computer, when I got the message, "potentially harmful software detected." I clicked the take action option, but nothing happened. So, I turned off my tower, and turned it back on. It wouldn't get to the user sign in process. It just kept with it's blank screen. So, I've had a similar problem before, so I reset my computer to factory condition, since I don't have anything vital on it. I ran start up repair, which worked fine. I ran tests which worked fine and said it passed the entirety of the basic test. I did a more specific hard-drive test, and it passed that. So,I reset the computer to factory condition, and it goes well to that point.But then it gets to the "Setting up services" part of the resetting your computer, and it loads to installing services, but then it will say, "Windows setup cannot configure Windows to this hardware." or something to that affect. Then I'll get a message saying "Windows could not complete installation. Restart instillation." And it'll go no further, even when I reboot. What's wrong? If it helps, I use an HP 2009m.
I am currently trying to install Windows 7 64-bit on my laptop. I current have it set up at 32-bit Windows 7 because one of the RAM sticks died a year ago. I just bought 8 GB of g.Skill ram from Newegg and received it 4 days ago[URL]... I've ran memtest for several passes and no errors show up.
Laptop: HP DM4 1063cl (approximately 2 years old) It used to be able to install Windows 7 from the same disk, but when I tried 3 days ago, it failed. I've downloaded multiple isos of SP1 from Microsoft website and still gives me the same error. I read about RAID drivers but HP told me that AHCI mode is default. I've set the BIOS to default settings and still wouldn't work. The only thing I've ever done to HDD was partition it. I've restored the HDD in comand prompt and still wouldn't run. I've switched the memory back from the old ones and also single sticks and still wouldn't work.
On my wife's new lap-top I installed a windows update. One of two. One failed, one installed. I clicked restart now and the computer started to shut down. The screen then showed "preparing to configure windows. Do not turn off your computer". After two hours I assumed there was something wrong so I tried to turn off but it wouldn't, even if I unplugged it,so I removed the battery. Now when I switch on and try to boot-up I see the same message and cannot get any further.
I'm trying to configure a Windows 7 computer to set the default proxy settings by machine and not by user. I've managed to find the policy in [HKEY_LOCAL_..."ProxySettingsPerUser" and when I set that to 0 it gives me the effect I want and doesn't force me to edit the settings for each user.Similar to the problem this guy: ProxySettingsPerUser had. The proxy settings are now supposedly given from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE area but after hours spent googling and trying to edit the proxy settings none of my attempts seemed to change it at all. where the computer searches for proxy settings when ProxySettingsPerUser is set to 0? I read that on XP it was the same place but in HKLM not HKCU but this does not seem to work in Windows 7.
I have a computer running windows 7 x64 home premium that is acting as my home media server. I don't have it configured any way special, just it has 7x3TB drives with my movies, music, pictures, and TV shows that my other computer can access. I am not using the home group function in windows.All my computers are linked through a GB switch and have access to the internet from the switch to my router and then to my modem so traffic between my home computers is through the switch and not my router.My server computer has an on board GB LAN port that is connected to the switch. I have a spare NIC card that I could put into my server, but am not sure if this would give me better network performance.
1) Would adding another network card to my server computer connected through a GB switch give me better network performance?
2) If I have a computer running a torrent client and seeding from my media server could I set it up so that one of the LAN connections was used specifically for this torrent client computer (and would that provide any more stability/performance to my system)?
I am not able to configure old files to the new computer. Some files a empty, other require passwords/ administrative authorization and there are files that are located in different document files under different user names.
I download the software for my Brother printer for installation. When I Run the installation till "Now plug in the printer with USP port and turn on the printer", nothing shows just like the printer did not plug in.
I recently purchased a Lenovo and figured that I should obviously get the Windows updates for it. I went to download the updates and all went well, that was until it tried to configure them with my computer. Everytime I turn on my computer now, I have to wait for it to try to configure updates. It gets to 15% completed, and then it suddenly says that the updates failed to configure, so the computer restarts, and then I have to wait for it to start up AGAIN. I've tried this at least 8-9 times and get the same result.
While waiting for the 7 Professional x64 installation to be finished, the screen shows " setup is preparing your computer for first use". The computer keeps reading the DVD drive about more than half hour and does not go to the normal desktop. I started from clean installation.
one of the netbooks was plugged in to initially power it up, but then hard-shut-down before Windows could run through its initial setup.Now when I boot up the netbook, and it attempts to go through the initial windows setup "Setup is starting services", and then throws an error message: The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.I restart, and the cycle continues. This happens whether I try to boot normally or in safe modeI've got no CD-drive attached to it, so I'm not sure what I can do to break this error cycle.
I am trying to upgrade Vista to Windows7 Home Premium and I got this message after the installer copied ~2GB of files on my PC:
"setup can't continue. restart the computer and restart setup. when prompted try getting the latest updates."
I restarted the PC and restarted the setup and I got the same message. I updated the Mother Board Bios and restarted the setup I got the same message. I have tried both options (get update and no update during the setup). And it didn't work.
I do not want to do custom install (fresh install) on my computer.
i havw 2 computer buth running under window 7 i have suscesfuly changed confil,nt so that it accept files = 200 but excatly the same command is not acceptet on the second computer when starting and msdos program that requires 39 files to be oppend at the same time the answer is tha only 32 files can be opende at the same time ?
So i just build my computer.....well upgraded from quad core 9550 to core i7 now with my old computer, i was thinking of making that a data server, and having my main rig just os and applications and having the serve on a 2 gig connection to the network does that seem feasible. I have 4 1tb hard drives i wanted to do them in a raid 5 however the Intel controller on the x58 chipset will not let me do non boot raid setup so i can only get 2tb max in that setup.
The i know on board raid isn't the best but raid controller cards are expensive. I will basically use this server for all my data, website creation movies, and music store. i have my os on a raid 0 2x 300gb veloci raptor. Let me know what your ideas are.
I have recently moved to the Netherlands and now in an apartment with a common internet that 3 people, including myself are sharing from. I have been unable to hook up my own wireless router and cannot figure out how to solve this. As of now I am hard wired into the wall where the internet is working. When I plug in my wireless router I lose all internet.If I plug in a cable from Lan1 to my computer I still get nothing...I'm not the most tech friendly person but I do know how to set up my computer. Am I unable to hook it up because of the main shared modem or what?
every time i boot up before it lets me sign on, a windows configuring comes on every single time for about to weeks now, and its taking about five minutes to boot up after. i do music and my editing programs and video programs and wmplayer now freeze and skip about every 7 to 10 seconds, making my work impossible.ive tired system restore but it wont let me create a earlier date, or go past the date of the nov 18 2011.before it was showing a black screen when i would boot up and would say" corrupt file sytem ntfs, said their was a corrupt file do to a recent update fail or installed, so i have went to windows and installed every update i could, now the black screen doesnt come on , but the freeze in my programs and media continues as well the boot up. but here whats wierd cuz if i watch videos online or listen to music online there is no freeze? just on when offline?
I have the problem of failure to configure windows, i have seen a few posts on here about people solving this problem but i am a bit of a noob so was hoping i could get some 1 on 1 help.I was stuck in a loop for a while in that i would get to the failure to configure windows screen and it would either restart or would just stay on that screen for hours. i have now somehow got onto my laptop (don't ask me how! just luck i guess) but i was wondering if there was something i could do to stop it happening again. until that time i will be trying to leave my laptop turned on.
My computer got infected by Win 7 Security 2012 rogue virus. I removed the virus with the instruction on bleepingcomputer. I think I removed the virus, but I cannot go onto the firewall. When I go to windows firewall, everything is disabled and thus not able to enable the firewall. So when I click 'Use recommended settings' it says that Windows firewall can't change some of your settings, Errorcode 0x80070424.
I am trying to get my Windows 7 machine to forward tcp connections to different address and port. I searched through the internet and found that it can be done using "net sh interface portproxy" command. Specifically I am running the following from the command line:
netsh interface portproxy add v4tov4 8000 192.168.0.100 9000.(192.168.0.100 is the address of an other computer on my network which listens on tcp port 9000)
I HAD A COMPUTER WITH WINDOWS XP CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET, THEN I REPLACED IT WITH A WINDOWS 7 COMPUTER.SINCE THEN, MY CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING OFF AND THE ERROR READS..."LOCAL AREA CONNECTION IP ADDRESS IS NOT CONFIGURED"
How do I set up a password to log into the computer? If the computer is on, I don't want the kids to be able to blindly go to the internet. I want to make it so I have to log back in to use the computer.
I've maxed out my machines RAM and I'm running out of ram at times and hitting hard drive I/O bottle necks. I'm running a setup with 3 monitors on a 2.7Ghz i7 with 16GB of RAM. I'm thinking I could setup another computer, connect to it over the network and have something setup so that much of the time one of my monitors is a remote connection to that computer. Basically giving me the power of another full computer at my same workstation without having to have another physical computer / keyboard / mouse here. I'm going to test the setup with Team Viewer and see how that works to operate a second computer on my network.
Since the beginning of August my Win 7 system installs updates at shutdown and then at the beginning of the next bootup, it tries to configure the updates and fails. I'm pretty sure it's the same updates. How can I find out what updates these are and stop this from happening? My Win 7 is 32 bit. jbschwartz--2008 has chosen the best answer to his/her question.Click here to view the answer that was selected.
i got a packard bell pc today and for some reason when i plug my printer into it it says device unrecognizable, no matter what port i use. other usb devices such as the mouse and hard drive will work fine, with no problems, just the printer, epson dx4450
I have my C drive, another internal drive and 2 exterior drives. I have used Cobian backup for several years to backup documents daily. Just started using Win 7 recently and decided to use its backup for system files in case my C drive fails. My second external is new and it is 500gig. After the backup it only has 154gig remaining. Is there any way to stop it from backing up the other 2 drives? This is probably very simple, but i did google it and didn't find anything.
I've recently purchased a laptop with Windows 7 which obviously has Windows Live Mail (WLM).I had my mail files etc transferred across from Outlook Express on my old PC and messages to/from BT Yahoo (I have just the one btinternet.com email address) were pointed at WLM with POP3 and all that nonsense(!)It has been configured such that inward and outward emails ALSO remain in my BT Yahoo mail boxes - I find it useful to see these when I access BT Yahoo (webmail)from my work PC or any other PC when I'm travelling without my laptop.This worked fine for a while but I've recently had trouble with duplicate emails being received on WLM. I suspect this might be because my BT Yahoo account is a bit "clagged up" with emails which slows it down and we have a very poor internet connection being rural. I think this prompts BT Yahoo to resend messages and hence I end up with duplicates on WLM.
I believe that (unlike Outlook Express) WLM is "web based" and therefore I SHOULD be able to view just the one "version" of my mail from any PC without the need to log into BT Yahoo at all - if I could do this I guess I could avoid having to retain any messages at all in BT Yahoo and maybe this would solve the problem
