Unknown / Unexplained Error


I recently have been having an issue of an error box popping up it gives no error code all it it also does not have the appearance of windows 7 looks more the gui from windows xp or even windows 95
Example: after clicking on camspace.exe i get an error box the window's label/name is "camspace.exe-no disk" and in the main body of the window there is a white x inside of a red circle next to that the error message reads " there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive" target drive is "deviceharddisk4dr10".

I post this because i could not find a similar case online and i know that windows always generates an error code for reference, so i am wondering if this is a more complex error not related to windows or if it is spyware/malware.

An Unknown Error Occurred While Printing

My pc started running like molasses earlier this week, and since i got that fixed, it can't print to anything. How can i fix this? I've been using win 7 rc (64-bit) on a new pc (asus m3n78 motherboard, quad-core amd phenom 9500 processor, 4gb pc6400 ddr2 800mhz memory) since mid-july. This is a stand-alone pc connected directly to a lexmark x6170 printer via usb2 cable.

There are no routers or networks involved (other than the internet connection via a dsl modem). However, my firewall (comodo internet security) has reported finding (this week) a local area network at 192. 168. 1. 1.

The pc had been running fine til last tuesday (10/6). Then it started running like it was full of molasses. It would run ok at start-up, but once i had more than 1 or 2 things running, every little action took several minutes to complete.

The action center showed 3 problems, including something indicating that "windows 7 is no longer working" and something else indicating a chipset problem. First, i hit the win7 issue, which thought i wasn't getting updates. (I was, and had gotten an update just a couple of days earlier. ) I ended up downloading an "optional" update having to do with "hd audio". Then i went thru the "chipset" issue and ended up getting several nvidia drivers updated or installed. (I don't remember what the 3rd issue was, but i went thru it as well. )

Since doing all that, the molasses problem is gone. But now, i cannot print to any print driver - either my lexmark x6170 printer or my nuance pdf print driver. (The lexmark is using the 64-bit vista driver from lexmark. )

The win7 printer troubleshooter doesn't find a problem with either one. When i try to print to either one from firefox, i get "an unknown error occurred while printing. " If i try to print from nuance pdf converter pro 5. 1, the print task just disappears. If i try from ms excel 2003, i get either "your file could not be printed due to an error on docucom pdf driver on ne03" or "your file could not be printed due to an error on lexmark x6100 series on ne04"

At one point i found another lexmark driver via the microsoft website, and tried installing it. I think its name was something like "lexmark 5600-6500 series". That driver installed to "lpt1", and printing to it failed as well. I then deleted both lexmark drivers last night, and let the pc find the printer and install a driver on its own today. It found the "lexmark x6100" driver, presumably from my hard disk.

Unknown Dvd Maker Error Message

Here is a frustrating problem i am having with windows dvd maker that no one can seem to explain. I have a new computer, less than a month old, running windows 7. I have been trying to burn some home movie clips on to dvds for various friends and family. I completed 3 or 4 dvds successfully. All of a sudden, during the burning process, i get to a point about 0. 3 to 0. 4 percent encoded when i get an error message that the dvd cannot be made due to an unspecified error.

Every fresh, new, out of the package disk i try to use ends up with the same message. The clips haven't changed, the filters haven't changed, the settings haven't changed, i've just done a few successfully with no problem, now all of a sudden it can't burn any more discs. What happened? What do i need to do to fix it?

Error - Unknown Device - Usb Does Not Recognize Garmin Device

Just recently, windows 7 home premium addition has stopped detecting my garmin device. Other usb devices such as my ipod work fine. I was able to get it to detect the garmin only a few times, it would try to install the drivers but the drivers would fail to install. The garmin was working a few weeks ago. Below is a list of everything i have already tried:

Rebooting (after everything i try)
- Turning the computer off and leaving it unplugged overnight
- Completely uninstalling all drivers and software associated with the gamin.
- Manually installing drivers
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for new hardware
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for legacy hardware (this produces a device not functioning (code 10) error)
- Reverting back to a restore point before the last windows update

Please, any help would be very appreciated. I am decently computer savvy and have always been able to fix any problems that i have. This one has had me spinning my wheels for days.

Error - The Exception Unknown Software Exception (0xc0000409)

When i boot my computer i get a message that says "the exception unknown software exception (0xc0000409) occurred in the application at location 0xf9f89de3. Click on ok to terminate the application. Before this message pops up i am able to open programs and things generally run smoothly. Unfortunately this message pops up about 30 seconds after the computer gives me access to the desktop.

Apparently windows hasn't been authenticated and when i try to manually do it the error details state "the following information was found for this error:

Code:
0x800706be
Description:
The remote procedure call failed. "

Apparently windows update isnt running (is this because the product hasn't been authenticated?) And i was hoping to use windows update to see if there are any updates available.

This upgrade process has been incredibly disappointing. I have been running windows 7 rc as my main os since it was made available and i loved it. I was actually excited about an os upgrade, but this process has been a complete pain in the _, and i almost regret being an early adopter.

If it matters, im trying to run windows 7 professional 64bit. I was upgrading from windows xp pro 32bit (this process itself was a giant pain in the _ but thats because the digital river download wasn't an iso like it should have been). Honestly, im disappointed. Upgrading from leopard to snow leopard was a piece of cake and the only problem i have had with it is that the anti-virus my school makes me use doesn't support it yet; i thoroughly enjoyed using windows 7 rc and expected by experience with windows 7 pro to be the same. Until these problems are resolved i guess i will continue using windows 7 rc.

Hardware:
Intel e8400
4gigs ram (pc-1066)
Radeon 4850
Western digital hard drive (640 gigs)

Edit: i decided to follow the instructions in another thread which explained how to turn the student download (my method of purchase) into a bootable cd and i reformatted the partition windows 7 professional was on and have reinstalled windows 7 professional. So far no issues, but then again its only been 15 minutes.

Unknown Solution In Action Center

My action center keeps telling me that there's a solution for a problem it encountered. When i try to read the solution, it loads for a while, then it tells me that the solution could not be downloaded with missing internet connection being the most likely cause. This cause guess is obviously wrong because i am online. Yet, the action center only names the most likely cause and absolutely fails in further troubleshooting, something it was created for.

Anyway, can anyone tell me how where to get further information on the problem and solution?

Program Icons Changed To Unknown Icons

Just recently, my computer's icons for programs such as windows live messenger, microsoft office (all programs and documents for those programs), steam, pdf files, are all changed to unknown icons. Im not sure what i happened and i restored my computer, but after another day or so, it reverted back to the same thing. I believe it might have been due to running disk cleanup and im not sure if i restored to before running disk cleanup. But these missing icons only displaying the unknown icon for all those programs and their files. Can anyone please help me?

Faulty icons: microsoft office and its documents, pdf files, windows live messenger, steam, itunes these are the ones that i see, there could be more for all i know.

Error - Request Could Not Be Performed Because Of An I/o Device Error

Wd passport essential 1tbi have the specified hd listed above. One day after i disconnected my hd from my ps3 and then connected to my toshiba satellite like i always do, it did not read it. It recognizes that there is a hd in device manager but in my computer it just shows up as the drive letter. I tried changing the drive letter and but in disk management even after changing the drive letter it still has an x by the drive and says it is unreadable.

It says that there is 937gbs of space when it is far less than that. When i went to explore device, it is "the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error" i reinstalled windows 7 and it still says the same thing even after the above steps. But the wd hd still reads on my ps3 and i can see the files just fine. Can someone please help me with this issue?

Error - 1612 - Feature Transfer Error

Error:- 1612 - feature transfer error - i cannot uninstall a specific driver that was installed from a cd. I want to uninstall a driver for redundant device. I can see it stuck there in my control panel/programs & features list. The driver software was bundled on the same cd as the application software that came with the device, which is a grabme video/audio capture stick by agk nordic, (who seem to have gone off the radar!). The application software is by arcsoft who are disclaiming on the driver software for the device.

Evidently the software was ill-suited for use with windows 7 and although patches were available they weren't effective. If i could have my time over again i would have left well alone, but as they say, fools rush in where angels fear to tread and you learn only by your mistakes! I have now purchased another device and different software which is configured correctly for windows 7 and it works!

In my control panel/programs & features list it is entitled, "usb audio/video driver" i have attempted to uninstall it from here and failed and also by reinserting the cd and that failed too.

When i use the control panel/programs & features method i get this information/message box: the installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access it. C:windowsinstaller612f7. Msi

Using the setup cd i am given two options. The first is to repair and the second to remove. This option screen comes up because there is something related to it already on my system, having already installed it, (even though it doesn't work!).

Whether i choose either option my system generates similar information/message boxes. I have tried both methods of uninstallation with and without the device plugged in. Basically, they are telling me that: usb video/audio driver. Setup could not find a file on the specified path or disk. Please check that the proper disk is inserted or specify a new path. Unable to locate file

C:usersbrians~1appdatalocaltemp{f2a8acd9-1f63-4565-82db-3e07b9f7fe2e}usb videoaudio driver. Msi

This is the attempt through the control panel/programs & feature. The path is displayed slightly differently when the attempt is made using the setup cd in that it is: eaa60d5d-06d8-476f-8875-5d8d6d753ec1}

I click on retry and i get the same message, so i click on cancel and i get this message: feature transfer error. Error:- 1612. The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source disk exists and that you can access it. There is not a great deal i can do here apart from click on ok and abandon the exercise!
