Sound Hangs And Repeats In A Endless Loop

After playing for a variable amount of time, the sound hangs and repeats a 1 second loop. The only way to stop it is to reboot. Killing and restarting the windows audio service does not stop it. When the service is restarted is continues looping. Realtek integrated hd audio. Does this with windows 7 whql driver as well as later drivers from realtek. Does not happen with the other add on sound card in my machine which is an echo layla 3g professional outboard sound interface. 64bit windows.

Monitor Shuts Off

My computer monitor keeps shutting off on me. I have a dell inspiron b130 (i know it is kinda old) but i don't think its a hardware issue. It has started happening since i installed windows 7. At first i thought it was because my original product key didn't work, but i did the automated phone activation, and validated on the website, but it still shuts off. If i don't use my computer for awhile, it may stay on for a good 20 mins or so, but once it shuts off once, the time it stays on gets less and less. But, i just close the lid and open it back up and it works again. Any ideas as to what is going on?!?

How Do I Make My Win 7 Genuine ?

How do i make my windows 7 "genuine"? I purchased a non-upgrade windows 7 home premium oem and installed it on my system while i was working on some problems my computer was having. After i installed it, i decided that i needed to replace my motherboard and hard drive. I replaced these two items and reinstalled windows 7. Now, microsoft thinks that i tried to install this copy on two systems and is telling me that "the product key you typed cannot be used to activate windows on this computer. Error code: oxc004c008 the activation server determined that the specified product key could not be used. "

This isn't a second computer. It's the same computer with a fresh hard drive and motherboard. How can i get microsoft to recognize this and make this copy of windows "genuine"?

How To Make A Program Available To All Users?

How do i make a program available to all users if the program was installed for one user. Basically the problem is that i created another user account but only a few random applications show up on it and i'd really hate to have to reinstall some +50 programs so my computer can function normally on my secondary user account. I am able to locate many of the installed programs by snooping around in explorer and have been able to run a few by creating shortcuts, but many of them (spybot, itunes, google chrome, the list goes on!) Do nothing when the .exe is opened and are rendered useless (on that account).

Computer Randomly Shuts Down

I checked the "similar questions" options and didn't none of the solutions seemed to apply to me, so here goes!:So i've had this computer for a while now (i would say about two years). It's a home-built made by a computer-savvy friend of mine and it's been fantastic. It still has high marks in everything but my hard drive. I'm some-what of a gamer, and it's been running games incredibly well. So i decided to move to taiwan to teach english. I really didn't want to miss out on pc gaming for a year(+), so i brought this sucker with me.

I get to my apartment - no 3-prong outlets!  Get a cheap 2-to-3 prong adapter, buy a fancy new screen, and voila, computer seems to be working!  It made the flight with me! (Yes, i had to check it, i had the airline people put tons of "fragile" stickers on it, but that was probably mistake number one, even though i had the original box, and even though i still tried to keep it from getting damaged by putting in other clothes to hopefully brace the shocks. Nyway, so i'm listening to some itunes, for about an hour and then suddenly. Shut down. Oh well, i'll just turn it on.

Itunes. Shut down. I plug in my first-video-gen ipod to update new songs and what not? Shut down. I also brought my laptop here with me so after several more instances of random shut down, i focus on my laptop, and say goodbye until i can bring it to a repair shop or something in the states or have someone with computer knowledge take a look at it. My laptop dies (it was old and had some liquid damage that i guess finally killed it). So now i have to use my desktop. Hey, it's been working ok, even updating my ipod with no problems!

Oh wait, unless i'm playing music at the same time as updating it. So i just don't do that anymore! My computer-savvy friend recommends that i get a diagnostic program to see why i'm having problems. I get this thing called sisoftware sandra lite 2010 from cnet after reading their enthusiastic review. I start up the program and it starts checking. Something. I can't remember, had to do with running calculations and the computer shuts off.

Almost immediately after the test starts. I download and install starcraft 2. Successfully!  "Wow it stayed on long enough to complete it without shutting down! Maybe it's better!"Try to play starcraft 2 - shuts down. Damn! What is wrong with my computer! I see that the little icon at the bottom right has a red x circle on it. I click on it for the first time. "Troubleshoot a problem with your computer. "Oh, might that fix the problem?"Your computer might be encountering a memory problem. " Hmm, hopefully because that's easy to fix, right? Just buy new memory!So i let the windows memory diagnostic test do it's thing.

It restarts the computer and "oo, that's a new thing" the test starts. 1%. 2%. Shut down!So. Is it my memory? If it was my memory wouldn't the test finish?Is it my cpu?  There is a big fan covering the cpu and it moved slightly after the flight.could that have affected the processor?Is it the fact that it's not technically grounded even though it's plugged into a seemingly ok power strip?Is it something else? The motherboard? The fact that it's 110v here and not the us standard 120v?I've also noticed that i can browse the internet ok, but if i try to full-screen a video, it shuts down! 

But if i don't full screen the video, there are no problems. It's also really hot and humid here, and i don't have air conditioning yet. Is it overheating? This case is a coolermaster cosmos, it's supposed to be pretty good at keeping everything cool what is going on!?

Display Shuts Off When Pc Unplugged

I upgraded my asus 1005pe netbook from windows 7 starter to windows 7 enterprise. Everything worked fine. Did the online updates and now when i unplug the netbook, the display goes black. The computer does not shut down, the display just goes away and comes back when the unit is plugged back in. If i boot the computer in "safe" mode there is not a problem. The display stays on whether it is plugged in or not. Windows is the only program currently loaded on this machine. I have another asus 1005hab netbook with windows 7 enterprise loaded that this does not happen on.

Monitor Shuts Off But Computer Remains On

Not sure if this is under the right topic, sorry. Well, the monitor will just shut off after booting up the pc. When i bootup in safe mode, the problem still occurs, although it took a longer time for it to turn off. Everything is still running though. This just started happening today. Right now, it seems to be okay, though it took a while before i was able to start it up normally. Several times before, when i tried to boot up, it refused to turn on. The graphics card fan would be on at its highest speed but won't become quiet again, as its supposed to. I had to turn off the main power at the back and wait awhile before i could start it up.

Could it be graphics related? Right now, using speedfan it says my gpu is at 57 c, which is hotter than normal. Also my cpu is at 40c, when its usually at 30 - 35. Usually my com is extremely cool, though i don't use liquid cooling and the room isn't air conditioned. So i don't understand why its suddenly like this.

Or is it a virus? Problem started when my sis tried to change her wallpaper. She said she just clicked on the photo and then the monitor shut off. Virus? Or coincidence? Need your help on this asap :) im using intel core i7 920, overclocked to 3. 2ghz. Asus rampage ii extreme mobo. Expertvision 8800gt sonic.coolermaster storm scout chassis. Windows 7 ultimate.

Floppy Drive Shuts Down Computer

I own a 2005 dell 8400 xp, it did not come with a floppy drive. When i purchased my designer i embroidery unit it required floppies. I ordered a small floppy drive and plugged it in a usb port. For the past couple of years this had worked fine. Now when i plug it in the computer acts as though something is attacking it and shuts down. I use frontier "peace of mind" for my troubleshooting and what not and they told me that when windows did an upgrade it must have down something to no longer recognize the floppy drive and suggested i call dell. Since my computer is no longer under warranted they wouldn't hep me. What can i do?

Can I Make Office 2007 Run As In Xp?

I spent a great deal of money purchasing the fastest laptop on the market, as well as updating every feature that was upgradeable. I am running windows office home premium 7 with 8 gigabytes of ram on a 64 bit duo processor in the 3. 7gh range.

My problem is, i absolutely hate windows office 7. Is there some way where i can make it run as if it were windows xp as with other programs? I would hate to have to un-install the program and re-install office 2003 just because office 7 has was made virtually impossible to use, not to mention the $500. 00 i blew on it. Any help out there?

Make Aero Work On System Without Crashing

Is there a way to make aero work on my system without crashing it? I recently upgraded to win7 home premium. Install went smooth, but after logging in i kept getting a range of bsod stop messages at random intervals, including 0x0a, 0x24, 0x50, 0x3b (saw that one a lot), 0x7e, 0x7f. Occasionally they would be preceded by a charming notification that said "display driver stopped responding and has recovered, " but i soon learned that message was only a precursor to imminent failure. Sometimes it would go days without crashing, but other times it wouldn't go five minutes before bsod after bsod. I finally discovered that all my problems went away if i selected a basic (non-aero) desktop theme.

So what gives? I have an onboard graphic adapter, the intel g965 express chipset, which claims it is aero-capable. I have the latest driver for it and dxdiag says it's a wddm 1. 1 driver. Dxdiag also shows i have 358 mb total graphics memory (64mb system, 294mb shared). I'm not a gamer and have not run any graphics-intensive programs since this upgrade. I do like the "aero experience, " but it's causing major instability on my system.

Other system info, if it helps:

Dell xps 210 (model dxc061)
Intel core 2, 2. 4 ghz
2 gb ram

Windows 7 home premium 32-bit*, upgrade version**

*I actually loaded 64-bit first, but with all the crashes i thought maybe that was the problem, so after a couple weeks loaded the 32-bit version and found myself in the same boat as before.
**Technically, i loaded the oem-supplied vista os just long enough to use the windows 7 upgrade disc. I've never actually run with vista, so not sure if this is a problem with "aero" or with "windows 7 aero. " Anyway, i'm very happy with windows 7, and now that i'm not in danger of losing my work at any moment i can go about my business. But i will never be completely satisfied until i understand why my system doesn't support aero, or what i can tweak to make it work.

Computer Shuts Down After Awake From Sleep Mode

I just built a new computer with an asus p7p55d premium motherboard. When i try to wake the computer from sleep mode (i've tried both s1 and s3 sleep modes in the bios), the fans start to run and the motherboard leds turn on, but then the computer just powers off. I then have to turn the computer back on, wait for the bios to load, and then i get the "windows was shut down unexpectedly. Start windows normally or safe mode?" Prompt.

I've tried changing all of the settings i can think of in the windows 7 power options, as well as in the asus bios menu. A friend of mine said it might have to do with acpi settings, but it doesn't seem to change anything when i enable or disable them in the bios.could it possibly be a physical hardware problem? Does anyone have any ideas?

How To Make Disk Image And Avoid Licensing Issue?

My company wants to include laptops running windows 7 with a product we are selling. When we get these laptops, we often have to uninstall any bloat-ware, install our own software, and tweak some windows settings to get the machines in the state we'd like the consumer to receive it in.
. Very time-consuming process. It'd be nice if we could just have a master disk-image that we could apply to all the computers we receive.

However, this solution, i imagine, would cause some problems with windows licensing (as all comps receiving the image will technically have the same copy of windows). All the machines we receive have their own pre-installed versions of windows, so it'd be nice if there was some kind of imaging program that kept the windows-license on the machine, but changed everything else (windows settings, installed software. Etc. ).

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Putting Hdd Into Raid 0 Make Nfr License Invalid?

Will putting my hdd's into raid 0 make my nfr license invalid? I have built my own desktop, and received a copy of windows 7 ultimate at the new efficiency seminar i attended in seattle. The dvd's inside are labeled as not for resale. I have a 1tb drive for storage, and would now like put my pair of 320gb drives (one of which is my current os drive) into raid 0 since i plan on doing some video editing on this system. The only change from the currently activated setup is the drive configuration.

The two drives in question will still be operating on the same controller, and in the same ports. What i am unsure of is whether or not this will be considered a change of hardware that would necessitate acquiring a new copy of windows 7 for this machine. That would stop my ability to make the change at this time as i cannot currently afford a retail box of windows 7 ultimate, or even professional, which is the cheapest edition i can use now. The only hardware purchases i can justify at this time would make acquiring an oem version cost more than a retail box. Will my nfr copy of windows 7 ultimate still be able to activate?
