I just had a BSOD for the first time, it occurred during a shutdown. A program was preventing the shutdown, but I couldn't tell what it was (was trying to go to sleep). It occurred after encountering some weird problems. First after playing Mass Effect 3, my Ethernet port was somehow disabled, and I couldn't connect to the internet. Then I decided to play some insurgency, then insurgency crashed. I had to close it via task manager along with steam. After that I decide to shutdown my computer, it was taking long, and then it BSOD.
Afterwards I ran a sfc scan, and it came up saying something like it found some corrupt files but couldn't fix them all
I fixed the ethernet port problem, by re-enabling it (I was still able to connect to the internet via WiFi). Also ran a virus scan with Mcafee nothing showed up.

I'm just messing around with some configurations, at the moment with the aim of increasing productivity on my Win 8 laptop. I just scheduled a shutdown task, to be run every night and in the process I was wondering if there's anyway to prevent either:
Your computer from starting before a certain time or the operating system from logging you in before a certain time.
As an example, say I wanted to limit access to my computer before 9am how could you go about this?
I've noticed that even though I didn't run 'Reader' it's running and in Task Manager. At times I also see 'Store' running when I haven't run it. Any way to prevent unwanted apps from running?? I'm well aware of how to close them.
Just today, my desktop's been unable to boot into the login screen on Windows 8.1 due to a blue screen that appears for a split second, and forced the PC to restart. Some of this, I think, should be surely linked to the GPU, as it's left me with a black screen and loud fan noise about three of four times today. Each time I've restarted the PC, it's been able to to get back into Windows, though this time it's just giving me a BSOD that I can barely see at all.
What I'm wanting to know is how can I get it to show me the information for me to diagnose it. Could I use a shortcut on the keyboard, or will the information be saved somewhere?
I'm using the latest version of FF in Win 8 64-bit. I have the FF pop-up blocker enabled and also the ad-block extension. But I'm still getting these annoying pop-ups that slide in from the sides or top or bottom of the screen and hover, asking for opinions or ratings.
I am running a Win 7 OS on an SSD and I have some programs installed on a different hard drive. And I want to move this program files folder on the same hard drive but different partition. Is it possible to do this without breaking the program links?
two weeks ago I had a hard drive failure on the stated laptop. I installed an OCZ ssd and reinstalled windows 7 from a retail family pack. I used the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) windows key from the sticker on the HP laptop. This activated no problem. I purchased this laptop new at SAMS club.
I also upgraded two desktop computers to windows 8 that also had this family pack copy of windows 7 installed on them (about a year ago). Both of these computers activated with no problem. I also installed a separate windows media player upgrade on each computer.
I then upgraded the laptop to windows 8. I also upgraded it to windows media player. I noticed that the key provided during the upgrade was the same provided by Microsoft during the upgrade of one of the desktop computers.
The validation was successful at first.A day later I got a message stating that windows was not genuine. I then attempted to purchase another key and Microsoft stated that I could not purchase a key in my current country or region (I am in Wisconsin).
The website stated that I had to validate windows by purchasing a validation pack at a local retailer.
Why cant I validate windows? I have the COA still attached and nothing is different about the computer except the replaced hard drive.
I have a HP Pavillion PC which is connected to my wireless network due to restrictions in the house. I have been having some issues which i suspect are related. Nearly every day now i either lose wireless connection, even though other devices near by have no issues or my outlook stops sending/receiving. I just get the progress bar and nothing happens. The only way i can solve these issues is by a restart which is starting to get tedious now.
I have looked through my error logs and i seem to have this event that pops up...
Closing a TCP socket with local port number 50513 in process 1008 is taking longer than expected. The local port number may not be available until the close operation is completed. This happens typically due to misbehaving network drivers. Ensure latest updates are installed for Windows and any third-party networking software including NIC drivers, firewalls, or other security products.
I have updated my wireless card drivers to the very latest i can obtain. I have even tried plugging in a usb Wireless Belkin adapter and still no joy.
I really want to avoid a full windows reinstall but i cannot carry on like this.
I have Secure Boot turned off. I have Legacy Boot turned on, but do not think that is needed.
This link gives me instructions to boot from CD but they seem not to make sense from No 2... [URL] .....
In that at 5-6-7 it seems to require me to select the CD then boot to Windows from HDD then restart and do the same again, but this time select CD again, or something??
I expected to set the device, then restart the computer and it would boot from the device, not restart Windows as described. I was able to boot from a WinPE 4b CD.
I then decided to try changing boot order in the UEFI BIOS. From then on the HP (F9) described menu showed 'Windows Boot Menu' only under UEFI Devices. I could only boot from CD after putting the order back to 'Windows Boot menu' at the top of the order list; after which, as long as the CD was in the drive the (F9) list showed the CD drive as selectable to boot from.
My issue is that I have a HP Pavilion G6 2399-sa and it is currently running the HP OEM version of windows 8, I have previously updated to windows 8.1...twice in fact and every time that I have updated to windows 8.1 I get random freezing issues. These freezing issues occur at random times there doesn't really seem to be some pattern to it.
I know that I have to update to windows 8.1 as there are apps which refuse to be installed unless I update ... So what to do because I need to update again so I can use my apps...I do recall reading something about Dynamic ticking I think? It was some command in cmd prompt like bcdedit /set disabledynamicticking yes I believe.
My laptop hp pavilion g6 has been trying to update and it has a blue background saying "Configuring Windows Updates 12% complete" it's has been like this for almost 2 hours now I tried to remove the battery but when it boot it comes back to the update.
Bought a new HP Pavilion with 8 installed, no CD. New OS and have decided to go back to Windows 7. I bought a full OEM version of 7 and am instructed to format the hard drive before inserting the new OS CD. I am having problems formatting the hard drive with out a OS CD to use.
My system in HP Pavilion g6 with 64bit processor but am running 32bit. I would like to install 64bit because all the software I need for my project as an Architectural student were all 64bit based softwares. I need a step by step on how to do this.
I have a new Windows 8 hp pavilion all in one desktop computer and since a windows refresh, a month ago, it has stopped creating restore points and it fails to manually create a restore point also.
It leaves a message "THE RESTORE POINT COULD NOT BE CREATED FOR THE FOLLOWING REASON: ACCESS IS DENIED. (0x80070005)".
I have allotted 15% or 66.67 GB for this feature in the "configure" option. The C: drive is the only drive marked as "ON" to be restored. The only restore point listed is for a WinZip 17 installation on the day of the windows refresh, which was as I said before, a month ago. The are no other restore points at all and can't create one.
I have a Pavillion DM3 that I have updated to Windows 8 Pro. I have left the Win7 Home on as well and have a dual boot that I was going to keep until I was happy with Windows 8.
Windows 8 installed OK on a new partition and ran very well. I loaded some other software like Office and Acrobat, and it still started and ran very well. I then let it apply the Windows and Office updates (about 70 items). It then took about 10mins to boot. Thinking I had corrupted something, I tried the auto repair, but that didn't work, so I tried refresh and rebuilt the Win 8.
I reinstall all the items I had installed previously, and applied the updates again, but exactly the same problem - very slow to boot. I have now reverted to Win7 again, and it is all working fine again. I have left the HP System partition unchanged, and as the active drive. I did try various boot rebuilds but that didn't work either.
There must be something in the updates that causes this but I don't know how to find out what.
So my computer (HP pavilion HPE) BSOD'ed for the first time yesterday afternoon (running Windows 8.1, upgraded via download from original Windows 7, so I don't have a recovery disc). Along with the error code, the BSOD says that File: WINDOWSsystem32winload.exe is missing or contains errors.
I have tried pressing F8, Shift+F8, and holding Shift on start up, and nothing works. I know I'm supposed to upload dump files with this post, but I can't/don't know how to get my computer to the point where I can access these files. I can access the HP Startup Menu by pressing Esc on start up, which has an option to display System Information (not sure if below info is useful or not...):
I have a HP Pavillion x360 i3 2 in 1 laptop. I am having problems with the wifi staying connected, and when the laptop is connected to wifi the internet speeds are slow. The speeds are slow as in I cannot stream videos on youtube without constant pausing, and even downloading something as simple as google chrome takes much longer than it is supposed to. In my house there are plenty of other devices that are connected including my old laptop, which, has no problems downloading/streaming and iphones, and an ipad.
All of the other devices except my new HP laptop has no problem streaming and downloading. The laptop is extremely new;less than a week old. I have tried updating the network driver, resetting the network driver, and disconnecting then reconnecting the wifi; yet the problem keeps occurring. I do have MacAfee so I guess that could pose a problem, but I am unsure. The adapter I use is a Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565, with internet provided by COMCAST. It could be an adapter problem, but because of the other devices working fine I do not think that the problem is from the adapter. Also, the OS is Windows 8.1...
I have an computer machine called "HP Pavilion" with Windows 8.1 on it.
Every time I start my computer up, my computer keeps saying "Starting Automatic Repair" then 2 mins later the blue screen comes up with a face on it which it might be something wrong with the machine, then the screen goes blank and does nothing.
I have a HP Laptop Pavilion Windows 8. Recently I caught the Highlite App. I finally was able to remove it, after trying every malware and adware remover I could think of. After I finally got rid of it, and all of it's annoying pop ups, the laptop and browsers work great for about a day and then the internet started freezing and I will get a "Google Chrome (Not Responding). It will also do the same thing with IE and Mozilla, but Chrome seems to be the worst of the three. Sometimes it's so bad, it's not usable. I updated Flash Shock wave yesterday, but it hasn't seemed to work.
