Windows 7: Many Win7 problems.

Many Win7 problems.

My Win7 O.S. has been playing up for months now, I have programs not opening, the computer going into hibernation and refusing to wake up again and all sorts of other stuff that I can't remember right now. I had previously looked at Speccy under services and saw that a lot of programs were not running so (like an idiot) I searched around until I found a place where I could turn them on! But of cause that was a bad idea because things only got worse. Its only certain programs that wont work like Desktop gadget, G-Force music visualization program, Windows photo viewer, etc. A member here suggested I replace some registry entries but that didn't work properly, the programs would only work intermittently. Ive run sfc/scannow, when its finished running, it says there are no integrity violations? Ive included a screenshot of a random thing that happens on my computer. Any ideas how I can fix this? Or is it a re-install of the O.S. ? Im 63 y/o and only have a basic understanding of Windows 7, O.S.

Ok mate now first up you really shouldn't go messing around in the registry unless you have some idea of what you are doing - that is without backing it up first and getting advice on those sub entries.

Now to start with please run these

https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html

https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html< if necessary include the /f switch and if this does not make any improvement then just run this switch instead /r in the command line as per Option2

Run these in safe mode and the sfc often best run for two to three runs you can leave out the /r switch in ckdsk if you feel it not necessary


if no fix then these


http://www.superantispyware.com/

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans

(NB If you are running Kaspersky as the main AV then it might need disabling it when trying ADW because it does not like it at times)

Now it would be good to at least know what your motherboard is so you can get specs for everything by following this

Using HW Info

PART A:

You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info https://www.hwinfo.com/download.php < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT as a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE (sometimes the usual one for Gigabyte boards)

Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.

Limits +/- (minimum - correct - maximum)

12v1 = 11.4 - 12 - 12.6v

12v2 = 11.4 - 12- 12.6v

5v = 4.75 5 - 5.25v

3.3v = 3.135 3 3.465v

-12v = -10.80 - -12 - -13.20v

+5VSB = 4.75 5 - 5.25v

The Power good signal voltage at pin 8 on the 24 pin plug (grey cable) should be the same as the 5v rail reading/s

See this for the rail voltage info

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/power-supply-specifications-atx-reference,3061.html (Section 2.)

The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel

FOR OTHER COMPONENTS

PART B:

Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.
Run PART B: to get the specs don't worry about PART A: just yet


Now just what do you mean exactly by a basic understanding of Windows 7 I am not real sure what that means. I am 70 and have been doing stuff on this forum for some years now and I wouldn't say I have the best knowledge of it either.
Just as ay the by do your have or are running any programs that reckon they can tidy up the computer like registry cleaners driver finders etc??

In your specs i see your quoting a back up external drive.
IF your system is/was infected then so WILL IT.

Motherboard is MSI 2AEO. Ive run all the antivirus/adware programs & sfc/scannow several times. I couldnt run diskchecker but Speccy says the hardrives are OK. Ive taken a few screenshot of the errors Ive been getting recently. I ran the HWINFO B program but it didnt show the power supply voltages anywhere it just said its OK. The voltages are alright on the CPU though. I have CCcleaner and Revo Uninstaller, I have been playing with the extra programs included with Revo but that was in an attempt to fix this OS! I dont use my external drive anymore.I use a 1TB F Drive for backups now. I think Ive answered all your questions?

It may seems a little drastic but I would do a clean install.
- Backup your data.
- Disconnect all other drives, living on only the one that will have windows installed.
- If your computer came with Windows, launch Factory recover HP Notebook PCs - Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options | HP® Customer Support

- If you installed Windows, do a clean install. Clean Install Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums.
- For the updates MS releases SP2 for Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums
- Restore your data from the backup.

Hi Red,

have to agree with Mega, but i would go a step further
would you mind posting a list of your installed programs, for starters i certainly wouldn't use Bios agent+
especially as your motherboard is an HP hybrid.

That comp comes with that MSI motherboard, specific to that model, hence my comment re Bios+.

As i said its hybrid only produced for HP models.
