First of all, make sure your own system.

go to safe mode with networking and run following or whatever it is you have to go quickly f8 safe mode when you turn on your pc! or and the TWO RECOMMENDED!

After that prepare your computer to clean boot, by typing msconfig in Start menu and then pressing on enter then disable all startup items and any of the services of windows, then restart in normal mode see if it makes a difference? If he did go back and see that one is at the origin of the problem and enable those that you really need!

    Hi douglash21414001,

    I think maybe it's a coincidence, that nothing is installed with ExportPDF, so nothing should have changed your web browser. That said, you can clear the cache of the browser and then re-open your browser. (What browser do you use?)

    You can also try to restart your computer, if the browser is restarted does not solve the problem. But still, I don't think that this problem is related to the ExportPDF.

    Please let us know how it goes.

  • HP Pavilion 23: computer hangs during the boot process

    Computer updates been made 2 days ago and has frozen black screen. Now does not start at the top. Starts the process and then freezes. He did start once yesterday and was going well for a few hours, then got a message saying computer had a problem.

    Error message:


    Now back to not start upward again, hangs with the HP logo on the screen.

    Hi there @ldgie25.

    That the Forums are with you!  I understand that, after a few updates, your computer does not start correctly and freezes on the HP logo.   I'm happy to help you with this.

    Since it was started once, but then had a blue error screen, I suggest using the computers HP - use Microsoft System Restore (Windows, 10, 8).   Follow the instructions in the section «restore your computer when Windows is unable to boot normally»  See if it will start normally after the restoration. If yes then you probably want to prevent the offending update to install again.

    Please see the following for how to do this:

    How to temporarily prevent an update for driver reinstallation of Windows 10 -

    How to uninstall and updates to block and drivers on Windows 10 -

    Please let me know if it works for you and if it does not solve your problem, please mark this message as a solution. Bravo would be appreciated as well.

  • HP Pavilion p6-2069sc: computer hangs during the HP splash screen


    I plug an ASUS GeForce GTX STRIX 750Ti to use in my Pavilion P6 - 2069sc, but when I start the computer after installing my GPU, the screen hangs on the blue HP startup screen.

    When I try to hit the ESC key to enter the BIOS or any other keys it comes just a beep of the machine.

    It is a long beep every 20 seconds or so from the computer.

    When I use the integrated graphics card, everything works as they should.

    I already upgraded to 550W 300W POWER supply

    Because your computer has been manufacturer Sept 2011, there Legacy BIOS.  The latest vBIOS UEFI was initiated at the HP units at end of 2012.  That said, either you stay with a Legacy BIOS GPU card, or choose a dual hybrid card BIOS.  The GTX 660, or GTX 670, all of which are two high-end of the legacy card would be far superior to the GTX 750Ti.   All the current hype is looking for a lower quality card, the 750Ti, based on the more low power and some GTX offering a BIOS hybrid via Select manufacturer. The Asus could not be hybrids, as you can testify. 450W SS6 550W PSU

    Based on your existing new POWER Pack, (hopefully a quality unit), 660 GTX would be good.  In my humble OPINION, an EVGA GTX 660 is better based on your power supply of the system. Please call EVGA for re - check a Legacy BIOS.

    PS I have a EVGA GTX 660 and 670 in my BIOS Legacy of <>towers.  I tried an ASUS, but he did not have an ASUS motherboard. Strange, but ASUS check the fault has his own card. Cost me $50 return shipping cost, so Please check with any manufcacturer.

  • Computer hangs during the transfer of 16 jpeg files.

    Recently, I replaced my Toshiba Satellite M40 PATA hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP SP3.  Subsequently, I find transfer more than 16 jpeg files (approx. 1 MB each) at the same time causes the computer freezes.  I have to shut down the computer and restart and sometimes the computer is 'always' Hung/frozen after restarting Windows (mouse move no keys, ctrl + alt + delete work does produce no action) which necessitated my stop down and restart the computer again.

    This problem occurs during various methods of transfer-to transfer pictures from my card SD using the scanner and camera or Nikon transfer software, trying to copy and paste pictures from the SD in an empty folder, and the problem occurs even when I try to spend more than 16 images from a folder in another.  I tried to transfer images from a folder with the computer in safe mode and the problem occurs when I try to transfer a little more than 16 images at once.  (my SD card, has about 60 images on that.)  There is no error message or any other message - the computer simply crashes.

    I did not have this problem before reinstalling XP.  There seems to be no limit to the size of the transfer that I could perform. I can't wait to find out how I can remedy this problem.  I am familiar with writing code, check the registry, etc, but I'm good enough following the simple procedures.  Thank you for your help.

    You should check this number against the future reports. It will not reduce, but if it increases, you need to back up on external media and replace the disk.

  • Why my computer hangs and the music sometimes?

    When my computer is blocking my mouse stops and I can't go for a little until the computer starts to move again it happen sometimes and when I want to listen to the music and watching youtube videos they get affected by Frost and they do beep sounds until my mouse was able to move again. I already clean my disk and I scan my computer with essentials, but nothing seems to work, can you tell me what is happening with my computer? I might have a virus, but I've already scanned my lot of time computer but nothing is found. When I look at my task manager, I see two race for internet explore, but I use an internet, I don't know why I'm getting this and I thought it would be the internet because it has the largest amount of space to use CPU and I see my performance top performer sometimes up to 100%, I don't know if this could be part of the problem , but I always get this annoying stupid freezing far if I would be very happy if you can give me any ideas or something?

    Looks like you can have a video and/or audio driver out of date on your system.

    Since the Microsoft Answers forum does not have any kind of information system request when a new question is asked, we know absolutely nothing about your system.  Not knowing the basic information a problem prolongs the frustration and the agony of these issues.

    Thank you MS Answers, allowing the resolution of simple problems as frustrating and a lot of time as possible.

    Provide information on your system, the better you can:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    What is your Internet browser and version?

    Your system have IDE or SATA disks?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    The afflicted system has a working CD/DVD (internal or external) drive?

    You have a genuine XP installation CD bootable, which is the same Service as your installed Service Pack (this is not the same as any recovery CD provided with your system)?

    If the system works, what do you think might have changed since the last time it did not work properly?

    Now make some clarifications:

    Click Start, run and enter in the box:


    Click OK, and when the system info summary appears, click on edit, select all (Ctrl-A), copy (Ctrl-C) and paste (Ctrl-V) the information back here.

    For information about video drivers, expand components, click view, click on edit, select all, copy and then paste the information here.

    For information about the audio drivers, expand components, click Sound Device, click on edit, select all, copy and then paste the information here.

    There will be some personal information (such as the user name and the name of the system), and anything that turns information private for you, simply delete the pasted information.

    This will minimize back Q & A and eliminate guesswork.

    While you wait, I could do this:

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs:
    Malwarebytes (MMFA):
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS):
    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    Hi, I recently got a computer and I just realized that whenever I turn it on after a long period of time (eteindre turn off during the night, turn it on morning) my computer freezes at windows startup screen. Sometimes a blue error screen appears and after reading it, I would say that a material is not installed correctly.

    Follow these steps to try to solve your problems of boot.


    Restore point:

    Do Safe Mode system restore, if it is impossible to do in Normal Mode.

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.

    Read the above for a very good graph shows how backward more than 5 days in the System Restore Points by checking the correct box.



    If the system or Mode restore safe work not and you do not have a Microsoft Vista DVD, make a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

  • The computer hangs during the communication via a serial port

    I developed a code in LabVIEW 2011 to connect with the XY stage. It's actually two steps mounted perpendicularly. The installer of the system is that a (made by the same manufacturer as the stadium) gamepad is connected to the USB port on the computer if a USB to Serial converter. A step is daisy chanied to the controller and the other stage Garland at the first stage.

    To our application had to continually check the status and position of the steps X and Y. Because the joystick also returns responses when a request is sent to all devices, I need to send applications individually; for example. one request per order per device, making it a total of 4 orders. It takes care of the error returned by the controller. The problem, however, is that after a while the freezing of the program or the computer stops and restarts. It is located about 13 minutes (on average) after the start of the program. It also happens even when no command is sent to the devices. I put 50 ms delay before each send two commands (position and status) by device. Basically, the application waits for 50ms before sending two commands for X stage and the receipt of the response and when everything is done with X stage, he expects another 50 ms to do the same for step Y. Should this procedure goes on until the application is stopped. But as I said, there is a problem. Now, I guess the problem is that serial port buffer overflows. He chose to increase the delay time, but if it works to solve the problem, then I have no choice!

    I would appreciate any thoughts and comments!

    After a lot of time to experiment, I am convinced that the issue was with adapter Profilic.
