When computer for a while and plug in flash drive usb does not recognize the drive, the computer slows down, does not turn off. Even with all the flash drives I have, ok when computer on just. I tried all the solutions online, nothing helps.

Looks like you might have some performance issues with the computer rather that readers flash... but first of all, I would like to try to take the flash drives to a friends and ensure that they are working very well... If they are I would look at the performance of the computer and health controls. Heres a guide to improving the performance and general peacekeeping home

  • Slow down the Audio and keep beat related Sections

    Hello people,

    I have a song that I would like to remix and I all set beat matching.  When I go to slow down the audio I lose my bearings.  Is there anyway that I can keep the sections that I beat matched and slow down the audio so these sections remain?

    For example, that the song is 120bpm and I have this rhythm corresponded perfectly.  If I have a loop of 4 bars and slow down the audio I have more 4 perfect bars.  I want to be able to slow down the audio and still have my bars 4 faultless.

    I hope that makes sense.

  • What happens when "Still waiting for network when starting the computer and logon" is enabled and that the computer is not connected to the network?

    In MMC, I created the group policy and found through web search that computers with mapped network drives can connect better if "always wait for network when starting the computer and logon" is enabled...  So far, it has been very nice to have allowed.  Is no longer mapped network drives see the place as disconnected.  But what happens if the computer is not connected to a network?  Say the wireless router will turn off and your computer always 'wait...

  • What does it mean when he says "a script slows down the computer running slowly?

    Whenever I'm on FACEBOOK, I get a grey inset block on the screen saying that something is causing a "script" and, therefore, my computer works more slowly.


    See if you have a "My Computer" icon on the screen (your office).  Otherwise, you can just click on the button 'Start' (lower left corner) and right-click on 'My Computer' (near 'Control Panel').

    After you right-click and then opens a menu popup (rectangular box).

    Then just click on this box, where it is said, 'properties' - then a big box with:

    the speed of the processor is listed under "Processor" (turn where it says Mhz or Ghz and the number just before it (as one might say 1.9 Ghz or 333 Mhz ["hz" stands for hertz]).)

    the RAM will be also listed, perhaps under "installed memory (RAM).

    Also, I would like to know what is your brand-name of the computer and if you can find a model number (and how old it is would be useful).

    Thank you.

  • Restore not working - the option to restore on my machine does not work. I've highlighted the dates. Does not work in safe mode

    Original title: restoration works not

    The weight restoration on my machine does not work. I've highlighted the dates but I get... impossible to restore messages. I tried switching off my virus checker (Norton) but with the same result.

    Some tools Anti Virus 'protect' your system so that they will not allow a restore of the system work properly.
    For example, if you use Norton/Symantec products, you will see a message like this:
    Restoration incomplete. Your computer cannot be restored...
    It is also a popular Symantec problem (well, I'll be polite and call an "undocumented feature"...), they wrote an article about it:
    According to what you use for malware protection, you may need to disable the product temporarily, do the system restore and then turn the products light up again when the system restore is complete.
    Sometimes you need start your system in Mode safe and so that your protection programs are not running, and then do the system restore.

    Tips from Microsoft in some of their articles that if the system restore does not restore your computer, start in Safe Mode, and then run the system restore.

    It works for some configurations.

  • Video games slow down the computer even when closed?

    Recently, I replaced the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE with a 8400 GS PCI Express so that I can play Call of Duty 4, Fallout 3, Microsoft Flight Simulator X, etc. After installation of the new equipment, several problems came. I have a 32-bit of Windows Vista Home Premium.

    1. the "Windows experience index" could not evaluate the 8400 GS.
    2. Windows could not find the driver for the 8400 GS software automatically, then I found myself from
    3. Although games played much more quickly after any where between 5 and 30 minutes of games, the computer goes REALLY slow. Yet once I close the games via the Task Manager, the computer continues to accuse. Icons highlight more slowly, for example. It remains for 5 to 10 minutes before returning to its original state.

    It could have been a problem plant material so I reinstalled the driver/3 times already.
    I have cleaned the registry of the computer, defragmented it and the two drives C and D.
    Problem persists.

    Help, please? Otherwise I'm going to get a new video card that is not too good.

    Hi decapen10,

    Looks like you're having overheating problems. Everything works fine until the internal temperature reaches a certain point, then the system slows down to protect the processor failure. When you leave the high demands of the games that you play, the card can cool down a bit and things pick back up. Take a look at your map and see if there's a fan built in. If this is not the case, try to join one. If so, try to take the case out of your pc to see what happens. If it works fine, then you must install some additional cooling in your case to dissipate heat coming builing. The other scenario is that you could have a defective 8400 GS. You could try to Exchange if it is still under warranty.

    Here is a link to a site discussing these issues:

  • Photoshop x 64 20151114.r.301 flashes on the screen and does not


    I've recently updated my Photoshop 20151114.r.301 x 64 version, and after this update when I open the app, it will start flashing (- black - white white - black - - black - white white - black) until I press the ESC key.

    After that, I can see that a constant use of the hard drive and mouse going normal pointer to the normal pointer with this circle of 'holding company', you know. If I try to open any file, any menu, I can not, as soon as I click, it closes the menu.

    I managed to open the preferences and I saw that my personal preferences (synchronized with my account) simply disappeared. All personal preferences where default reset.

    I did a search and I could see that it is not me to have this problem. I already have:

    -disabled graphics card acceleration

    -on and use of the Open CL (shouldn't it be Open GL instead?)

    -put updated and reinstalled drivers graphic with the latest from NVidia

    -reinstalled Photoshop in uninstalling and reinstalling using the application Adobe CC

    I installed the 20140508.r.58 x 64 version and it works like charm.

    Can you help me on this?

    Thank you!

    Please go to the General preferences, then uncheck the "Show Start Workspace", restart Photoshop.

  • Seeing the drive DVD Satellite M50 does not turn OFF, CD/DVD drive don't read do not


    I have a Satellite M50 - mx5 with a carpet * a DVD player. When I insert the CD or DVD, the player starts, turns the CD autour (the indicator light flashes)... but a few seconds later, the drive stops turning, but the DVD drive light is on.

    Windows also think that the DVD drive is empty.
    I also tried to boot Windows from the CD when the computer starts upward, but without success either.

    Ideas for what is wrong? Is my DVD drive broken?

    Thank you


    Sorry to said but in my opinion, drive is dead and that the replacement allows the reader features can save.

    But be aware that not every drive is supported and can be used with the laptop!
    Take a look in the user manual. Sometimes the compatible players are listed.
    And it s useful to know that all parts can be ordered from the ASP in your country.

    have a nice weekend ;)

  • Installed XP Pro SP3... Now my dvd player does not Sleep in my computer and does not appear to exist? I have no filters in regedit, it isn't a problem of drive letter, model acts as reader's not here yet. No driver for it, as this is the firmware

    DVD/cd burner no longer works. Instlled SP3, no computer behaves as it is not yet connected.  No reader, its firmware.  No filter I know cuttin git.  Not a problem of drive letter, carries the reader will not be open yet.

    Hello Justuslonginus,

    Thank you for your message.  What is the brand of your computer?  It could be that your computer manufacturer has a required update before installing SP3.  You should check with them before moving to the next steps.  After checking with you computer manufacturer, try to run the new hardware wizard to scan.  The instructions are below:
    Click "Start" > click on "Control Panel" > double-click "Add Hardware".
    Answer that the device is already connected and allow the system to scan.
    If your system has not yet found your drive.  Then we can remove SP3 to see if it was the culprit.  Click HERE for instructions to remove the SP3.
    Please let us know if it did or did not help to resolve this problem.
    See you soon
