Lost PowerDVD and WinTV after fresh re - install (no recovery disc)

Hello world

I bought my new HP Envy H8-1485ea desktop PC yesterday and try to get rid of the "bloatware" and unnecessary software, that I reformatted with my own license of Windows 8 Professional.

Now the problem is of course that I lost everything that I need to use the TV tuner and a Bluray player!

Anyone happen to know if I can download the separately packaged software? PowerDVD alone will cost me £35 and I can't imagine what would have cost WinTV!

For any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi, just thought I'd post an update after my visit to the PC world.

Fortunately, the store manager I recognized as the person who bought the PC £1000 the day before and allowed me to copy the installation of the C drive files, the display model!

I have now a functioning map TV/Tuner, Blu - Ray player and remote control!

Could not be more pleased with the help I got and understand how they were considering that it was my fault, that I was in the situation in the first place.

Thanks for your suggestions, if

  • I need to install TOSHIBA Recovery Disc Creator on Qosmio F60 - 11F

    Hello.

    I have a Qosmio F60 - 11F and I install windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, I have installed all the drivers from the Toshiba site.
    I need to install the TOSHIBA Recovery Disc Creator & TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator utilities; I search in the Toshiba site, but nothing is there.
    Can someone help me to download these utilities?

    Why do you need these tools?
    If you have installed your own version of the OS, these tools are useless, and for this reason, they are not available for download and installation.
    These tools, you can have if you install Toshiba recovery image only.

  • Satellite A210 - 4 1: Winload.exe problem after having used the product recovery disc

    Hello

    I could really do with some help here. I have a PC laptop Toshiba Satellite A210 - 1 4. Disk partitioned with Vista home premium service pack 4.0.

    Last night, I used the product recovery disc supllied with the laptop in an attempt to restore its initial configuration.

    and the end of the procedure, I find myself with a prompt cmd with X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe in the high bit blue box indicating:

    Error: imageX could not apply vista F:\05993xsp.swm Index 2 of ODD to C:\!

    Press a key to continue. Box disappears then an administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe in the top blue bit indicating:

    waiting for ODD vacancies...
    STRANGE drive f: loan.
    Look for support in the F: drive...
    Failed to initialize the raid class.
    No RAID - continue normally...

    X:\Windows\System32 >

    Now every time the laptop trying to restart it just comes up with the error message:

    CANNOT START WINDOWS. A RECENT HARDWARE CHANGE OR SOFTWARE MAY BE THE
    CAUSE
    FILE: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WINLOAD. EXE
    STATUS: 0XC000000E
    INFO: THE SELECTED ENTRY COULD NOT BE LOADED BECAUSE THE APPLICATION
    IS MISSING OR DAMAGED

    Below I have then have the possibility of esc or continue with the same result of the system attempts to restart.

    The recovery disc has no option of repair on this subject.

    need help please, I have no idea.

    Thank you

    Hello

    Looks like something was wrong during the recovery procedure.
    Have you tried to recover the laptop once more?
    If this isn't the case, you should definitely try this!

    You are right; hasn t drive recovery option for the repair because the recovery disk is not the same as a MS Vista drive. The recovery disk contains image files (it s a package) and the files contains Vista, Toshiba drivers, tools and additional software.

    So if something was happening well wrung out during the recovery procedure, you will not be able to repair the installation of the OS, but you need to run it again.

  • I JUST LOST FLASH AND IT WILL NOT RE-INSTALL?

    Any ideas guys? I tried to upload a video of your tube and xoom completely dead for several minutes. I finally got on and everything seems fine but I lost the flash player. I'm getting just annoying points mark as in iphone.

    The video content of BBC Player still works fine, but initially it is just a page of question marks.

    Flash Player is listed in my applications under do not installed. When I try to install, it seems to start but then stops, without success. I tried to uninstall, but nothing happens as it obviously isn't here.

    I got hit by a virus? What can I do? Thanks in advance.

    Try to uninstall it under 'Settings', 'Applications' and 'Manage Applications' instead of via the market, then reinstall it.

  • Material interruptions and DPC / after XP - SP3 install

    Following installation of the SP3 (made in safe mode by following the indications of the MS Support) system is terribly slow.

    I downloaded sysinternals Process Explorer that displays approximately 88% CPU by the "material Interruptions and DPC.

    My reading indicates that it is probably a conflict pilot or in need of an update.  How can I identify what particular device is causing the problem.

    The system is a desktop with PCChips A33G v1.0 mobo, processor Athlon 64 3500 + and 2 G of ram and NVidia GeForce 8400GS video card.

    This problem started immediately after the sp3 update.  Since the problem started I've updated drivers, BIOS and SATA, sound and network drivers for PCChips site.

    To answer your questions, yes I went back to SP2, and no, I'm not meeting all the problems I've had with SP3. [1]

    I run a full scan, no viruses / malware problems that I can find.

    What do you mean when you say "manually updated to SP3"?  The last attempt to SP3 is the third time around.  The first two were both using automatic updates.

    Try 1. Let it auto update.  (There no warnings or actions to be taken in advance). Said it succeeded, but I had this problem of slow use.  (a year ago) is back to SP2 and everything worked well.

    Attempt 2. A month ago.  Automatic updates has caused a problem with the MSXML installation, slowing down the system.  The suggestion was to install SP3 for fix.  SP3 was installed by automatic updates, but only after checking that AV was disabled and the other two services (don't remember now) were not installed.  That has not fixed the problem.  So I returned to SP2, resolved the problem of MSXML.

    Attempt 3. By suggestions received following the attempt 2, I downloaded the SP3 update and installed in safe mode.  It's the attempt that triggered this thread.

    [1] deliver him remaining under SP2 is that, every time you start, the Wizard "new hardware found" said attempts to install a PCI device, can not find a driver and I have no idea of what the device.  I have a NVidia video card, but its drivers are installed and up-to-date.  I hit Cancel, the wizard tells me that something does not work, but everything works fine.

  • Defragmentation after fresh re - install

    I just did a reinstall fresh Windows XP, Office 2003, all service packs and updates. Then download and install lastes versions of essential programs such as adobe software, Java, Flash, Quicktime and security. Then the settings imported and set up Outlook. I thought that I should defragment the hard drive at this point (before you install all my other 3rd party programs and all my backup files) so that the Windows operating system would occur at the optimal level. However, when I run the analyzer tool he says have not defragment now. Should I still defragment now or is better to leave it alone and install all my backup files and 3 third party programs. Wait while the analyzer tool reports the need to defragment.

    I look forward to the notice of hearing thereon. Thank you!

    The whole issue of defragmentation is still somewhat controversial. Many people believe that it is a valuable tool and to often do to improve performance.

    On the other side are those who believe that the defragmentation is not only unnecessary, but actually shorten the life of a hard drive.

    In the bad old days of FAT and Windows 3.x files got quickly fragmented and with the speed of hard drives, this caused a significant deterioration of the recovery of files, thereby slowing down the performance of the system. Frequent defragmentation was required. With the arrival of NTFS, file, however, the file system has become much more resistant to fragmentation. This reduces the need to defragment often. With the fragmentation of the speed of modern readers, the impact of (and need) has been reduced substantially.

    As John John has pointed out, it does no harm to defragment. I count not on Windows assessment to judge whether to defragment or not. If it has been awhile, go ahead. In your case, it is not a bad thing to do.

    I actually use a program called Diskeeper that automatically detects and prevents the fragmentation and also will be defrag if it detects that it is necessary and it makes when there is no demand on the processor or hard drive. Do a good job? You bet. It's so transparent that you are not yet aware unless you check the Task Manager. Is this necessary? It is open to debate. I love it and use it.

  • Lost bookmarks and tabs after upgrading to Firefox 12

    Against my better judgment, I've upgraded to Firefox 12. Immediately, all the bookmarks have disappeared. Whenever I started Firefox, I got a 'new tab' with nothing else. No favorites. No memory of the previous tabs. I did a restore and thought I had fixed it since everything is back, however once I closed Firefox and it started again is towards the Virgin Firefox with nothing and 'new tab '. I was already on Firefox 10 and with great reluctance ever to level, but I've updated another computer to version 12 without problem so I said ' this the heck, worked once should work again. " Evil. Unfortunately, this is my main computer. Help, please.

    One possible cause is a problem with the places.sqlite file that stores the bookmarks and history.

    Hi AK - MW.

    You're just facing problem with sound?, this file must be in your c:\windows\system32 folder and its for 8.00 KB (8192 bytes). Alternative, you can find and restore the C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386\driver.cab file

    If your file is present in the verification of the location for environmental variables, there must be way: %SystemRoot%\system32

    You can check the environmental variables (click Start-> settings-> Control Panel-> system-> advanced).
