I recently built a new computer with the following specs:
Core i7-2600K @ 3.8GHz 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz Western Digital Caviar Black 750GB 7200RPM SATA 6GB/S Patriot Torqx 2 32GB SSD Gigabyte Super Overclock Series GTX 560 Ti 1GB 256-Bit @ 950MHz (Core), 1145 MHz (RAM), 1900MHz (Shaders) Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 Motherboard Realtek 889 Onboard Audio (For Now...) Noctua NH-C14 CPU Cooler (Dual 140mm Fans) Thermaltake Black Window 850W Power Supply LG Blu-Ray Burner Drive (w/ Light Scribe) Linksys Dual-Band Wireless N Card Antec LanBoy Air Blue/Black Case
I installed Windows 7 64 bit and it was running great for a day but now it lags up when I move the mouse or run Internet Explorer. When I try to type anything in on IE8 the keyboard also lags. I am using a Logitech G15 keyboard and a Razer Diamondback Mouse (non-3G edition). I have the 64 bit drivers for both installed but that didn't seem to assist much. Also, my wireless connection is extremely slow.. slower than my 5 1/2 year old Windows XP 32 bit machine (specs listed in my profile). I'm rather disappointed with the overall performance of it so far compared to my Win XP machine. Why my machine might be lagging when I move the mouse or try to type? Often when I type into the Google search box it will skip letters than I am sure I typed.
A Compaq Presario CQ62 Laptop running windows 7. I accidentally spilled wine on it and the keyboard no longer worked.I purchased a Microsoft wired desktop 600, but it has no function keys. On the original keyboard I used Fn E12 to connect to a network, but with the new keyboard I can no longer connect to a network. There must be a workaround?
I was forced to Reformat and Reinstall Windows 7, after that my Bubbles Screen saver became very slow and laggy, which it had not done this before. My Bubbles screen saver looked very nice before ... and now it is choppy and slow. I checked my graphics settings and my monitor's resolution and refresh rates and every thing looks fine ... Any Ideas??
OK, so my computer had a complete meltdown the other day... right after Windows 7 failed to boot, my Linux started having kernel panics and freezing every 5 minutes... so I backed up the Windows partition's files, and wiped the drive (By wiped I mean I deleted the partition, I didn't use a "disk wiping" tool)
Well Linux reinstalled perfectly fine, so I figured it wasn't a hardware failure like I thought it could be... I even used the memtest feature for several hours and it all came back fine.
Well, I reinstalled Windows 7 not once, not twice, but THREE times. The first time, I put all my Windows files back right away (including the Windows folder), but it still had the brand-new look and not my old settings so I wiped it. The second time, literally 5 minutes after I installed it, Windows Update froze up right after installing my Wi-Fi drivers and locked up the entire computer... and after force-rebooting it it became super-sluggish like it was before I reinstalled it (like when I posted on here last time)
This most recent time it worked correctly, but it still doesn't seem to be as fast as when I first installed it. If I plug in my external hard drive with the Windows files, it seems to lock EVEYRTHING up... almost as if my old Windows partition was cursed or something. I deleted the "Windows" folder from it so there was nothing possibly corrupted there, but it still doesn't seem to be perfect.
Well, even with it unplugged, it's frozen up several times now. I only had maybe 3 programs running at once... it's not like I was overloading the computer. I just tried installing Paint.NET and it completely froze my computer twice and now the installer simply won't run. What's even weirder is I did a "chkdsk" from a command prompt, and while it found nothing wrong with my disc, it stopped around 65% and sat there for several minutes. Same as before I wiped out my drive.
I tried sfc /scannow and it terminated at 14%, saying the service couldn't complete...
I might try that again in safe mode, but still, something is still messed up with Windows. Does anybody have any ideas? I mean, would it be likely there's some bad sectors on my drive that Windows can't find? Would defragmenting help? I guess I just don't understand what's going on... I've wiped the drive a few times now and it's still not working perfectly.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32Bit, 3GB RAM, AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core processor, Basically computer will load up fast when booting and even logging in, I have changed settings in msconfig to speed boot, BUT if I lock the computer and log back in it takes around 2-3 minutes for the computer to getting running again just a really big lag especially Google Chrome, when I lock the computer I usually have like 5 programs running WMP, Chrome, Email and maybe steam and xfire running in background.
I'm wondering what went wrong with my computer because suddenly all my games got laggy. I first encountered this problem playing warcraft, frozen throne. It suddenly has a lot more resolution options, including 1080p, which was not available before. Nonetheless, even if I stick to the resolution which i usually played on, it still laggy. The lag only disappears when I turn it to a much lower resolution setting. Moreover, I tried playing my other games like prototype, and i can't even play properly anymore because of the lag. before this happened i tried cleaning up the insides of my PC(hardware) by blowing off dusts.
i have recently installed the windows 7 rc 64-bit. i have been playing a bit of counter strike source and have noticed a bug when being flashed. this happens when you are flashed and move the screen around, you'll notice that it's laggy and glitchy afterwards. it moves back and forth quite fast to where you last were looking and where you are looking currently. i have it on Internet here:
does anyone know how to fix this?
i downloaded the latest nvidia drivers for windows 7.
I just installed build 7100 yesterday and i have really enjoyed it so far, but noticed one slight annoyance.
When I close a program or a window, the animation takes effect and the window begins to close, then pauses for literally a nano-second, before closing all the way. Its not much, but its noticeable enough to be an annoyance.
I've only been able to find one other post of someone complaining of the same issue, and I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this or if anyone has a fix.
This is perhaps the worst version of Office I have used. 2000 was fine. Skipped 2003. 2007 was innovative. 2010 was very impressive. 2013 is a serious step back. The new UI is extremely laggy on any computer of mine. The stupid smooth page reflow is just dumb, especially for long documents. Waiting for 50 pages of text to reflow takes forever. Plus, the time needed to save files is so long in Office 15. I hit "ctrl+s" and the entire program locks up, taking a good couple seconds to save. On office 2010, saving was almost instantaneous and I could still type as Office saved the file. This is not mentioning the sheer number of times Office 15 has crashed on me.
All was well with my computer and one fine day video playback became very laggy and choppy. Also the computer in general slowed down considerably. My first thought was that there had been a virus attack and hence I ran a thorough scan. Nothing showed up. So formatted the whole system and installed Windows 8. Nothing changed. Videos continue to be laggy and overall system performance is slow. I read somewhere this could be because of high DCP latency caused by faulty drivers. I used the original Windows 7 backup DVD given to me by my laptop manufacturer to restore to factory default. No change - laggy video with slow system performance. I used the DCP latency checker to figure out what was causing the high values I was getting and pinned it down to the WiFi driver. The latency is down but choppy video playback and super slow OS continue to bother me. I've run out of options and my patience it's wearing thin.
Laptop keyboard will lockup. It is a HP laptop model G72-259WM. I was able to hook up a usb keyboard to log into computer but it will also lock up when I tried to do some typing in Word. Uninstalled keyboard from device manager and everything worked ok for two weeks and it started acting up again. Had him uninstall keyboard again from device manager. For now it is working ok.
I made my Windows 7 64-bit laptop my new desktop.I put all the peripherals to the laptop; monitor,keyboard, speakers,etc, etc.Everything works fine.I am able to restart & shut down the laptop from the added monitor(start menu), however, I'm not able to power it back on from a complete shut down from the 2nd keyboard. I have read there is a way to do this. Right now, I must go into the laptop and toggle the on/off key.My question, is there a way to add a turn-on key(power on) to the 2nd keyboard?And if so, which key would be most appropriate for this?
I was wondering if it is possible or particularily unadvisable to change my laptop keyboard to one by a different manufacturer? I've recently got a new laptop (Acer Aspire 5742G) and all is grand, except for the fact that I can't stand having a keyboard with a numpad. The arrow keys are too small and the Fn + whatever keys are all in places I don't like. This isn't a big problem or anything, I'm just curious to know if anyone has done it.
A couple of weeks ago my keyboard on my laptop stop working properly. When i hit the tab button, it won't work. If i hit the shift button on the left side of my keyboard it won't work. I have to click on the shift button on my right side of my keyboard to use the secondary symbols like @#$%^&^&. My backspace button don't work properly and i have to hit it like 0 times so it can delete one letter.
I am trying to hook a monitor & keyboard up to my laptop for my wife (screen on laptop is too small). I can get it to show on the monitor, keyboard works, but I cant close the laptop without it going to sleep. I have gone into the control panel to change the power settings on what to do when the lid closes but it is greyed out. I am using the admin account but still cant change anything. Laptop is a Samsung RV511.
Last night my keyboard and touchpad stopped working on my laptop and now I'm using the usb mouse and the "On screen keyboard". I have done a system restore but to no avail. I've also taken out the battery (found in another thread) but nothing. In device manager there is an exclamation mark next these:1. Under keyboard. keyboard device filter2. Under mouse and other pointing devices. ELAN PS/2 port smart padDouble clicking both of them gets these properties for each respectively:1. Under keyboard. Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)2. Under ELAN PS/2 port smart pad. This device cannot start. (Code 10)The laptop is an Asus x53sv running win 7 64bitI made a recovery disc (in fact there 5) when I first got it but using that wipes the hard drive C:. I know that for XP there is a repair program which you get to by following the procedure for doing a re-install but you have this option which doesn't wipe the hard drive. I've used it.Does something similar exist for Win 7?
The internal keyboard and touch pad of my laptop have stopped working suddenly. The laptop was running but I did not use it for maybe 5 minutes. Then the touch pad and the keyboard did not do anything anymore. Rebooting did not help. I use external devices now.In the device manager the devices are only shown when hidden devices are displayed. Both devices have a yellow exclamation point and error code 24 in details (device not present or not working). Replacing the drivers with a compatible one does not help. windows XP: Laptop Keyboard Not Working?
Win 7 was freshly installed on my laptop on a brand new 160 gb hard drive. 1st fresh install was Win Home ver 7 32bit. After installing 32 bit , realizied I mistakenly installed Win 7 32 bit Home version. Product key revealed original software was Win 7 Pro 64bit. Keyboard problem did not occur with 32 bit version. Once I installed the Pro 64 bit version the keyboard was non responsive.
Keyboard worked fine with 32 bit install and unresponsive after 64 bit install. Touch pad works.
I carefully removed and installed brand new laptop keyboard. Same identical problem. Non responsive laptop keyboard. Suspect this is a software problem but unable to know which/what software driver may be compatible with 64bit Win 7Pro version.
I have windows7 installed on my laptop and any time i log off my system or just keep it idle for sometime it logs off and the keybaord starts behaving differently.Like when i press the j key it reads it as 1when i press f it reads it 4 and so on.
