P70 not working - flashing HD

The HD flashes constantly. On trial now power button for 10 seconds to turn it off completely. That had no effect. Suggestions would be appreciated. THX.

Solved by removing the CMOS battery for 5 minutes. Possibly caused by attaching a front external HD power that can have created a problem with BIOS boot or boot devices priority parameters setting.

  • AutoPlay dialog box does not work; flashes upwards and disappears

    AutoPlay stopped working on my PC. First thing I noticed when I swapped a game disc (FEAR: Extraction Point), who had been in the car for a few weeks, for another (Gears Of War). No AutoPlay dialog box does appear. I opened and closed it again, AFRAID to put in, tried an audio CD. No luck.

    What is interesting, is that if I pay attention, AutoPlay Windows flashes up, but immediately disappears. The same thing happens if I 'force' autoplay via the context menu in Explorer.

    I tried the following:

    (1) obviously checked the auto run settings in the control panel. Reset by default, activated it and left, etc.

    ' (2) ' the core hardware detection ' is running and set to automatic. Checked through "services.msc".

    (3) applied a few registry tweaks for entries "NoDriveAutorun" and "NoTypeAutorun".

    None of the above have made the difference. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64.

    Please help! Thanks in advance.

    This same situation has begun to occurring with my x 64 installation Win 7 Ultimate and I tried to fix it for ten days.

    Something changed 14 10 days ago and I can't remember what it was. Too many days had passed for restoration help, because it does not restore earlier I had.

    I tried everthing tried dancingcarb. Even downloaded 'autoplay repair' and ' defaul Programs editor ", ran and still no joy. I searched the web and read a lot of posts, but nothing did. This post is one that describes more precisely what I saw.

    Settings for AutoPlay in Control Panel type of work. PowerDVD will launch when I insert a recorded DVD, Windows Media player launches when I insert a CD recorded and Explorer will launch when I insert a data disc. But, always selecting "ask" does nothing. I don't remember Autorun recently. I see the reading dialog box automatic box flash on the screen. I can click the drive and select autoplay, but the same thing happens - the dialog box flashes and disappears.

    I tried to uninstall CyberLink Suite and Nero. Nothing has changed. I wonder if a recent update of Windows changed how works the AutoPlay.

    I ran a full system virus scan.

    This is a new computer about a month old and I'm bored to choose what I want to do every time.

    It's like something (a manager of some sort maybe) Hung all non-application specific selections. If I had Win 7 secondary machine, I start this topic and then to compare registry settings between the two.

    I have not tried booting in SafeMode (will try tonight), but I don't have much hope.

    It is the last obstacle to overcome (and don't understand why it's happening). I hate the idea of starting fresh and redo what I spent the last month making (which involved about methodically mobile 1.5 TB of data and install apps from my last computer), not even know if it will solve the problem. I would be grateful if someone can point us in the right direction. I'm out of ideas.

    Thank you.


    Regarding the "check if auto execution works in safe mode." No, it isn't. Best I can tell, it is not yet available.

    As dancingcrab, sfc found nothing.

    Still stuck


    I don't know what just happened, but I lost my summary of the steps to solve the problem on my system troubleshooting. I can tell if it helps someone, but for now -.

    MotoHelper Service has proved to be the culprit on my system. Changed the service for a manual start and Autoplay now works as expected.

    I hope this helps.

  • Satellite R830 not working - flashing power light


    My Satallite R830 lights.

    The power symbol flashes orange 8 times then pauses and restarts. There are 6 quick flashes followed by a longer 7 flash then another quick. The symbol wireless is lit (orange) all the time.

    If I unplug the laptop and remove the battery and hold the restart button for 30 seconds then without taking the battery in the charger stops flashing and the symbol of the power goes to green, until I try to turn it on, it has a fraction of a second where it looks like it is starting then stops and flashing orange again.

    Same thing if I unplug the AC adapter and the battery and then tried the above, but with battery or ac charger.

    I tried with another adapter (same output amp and volt).

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you very much

    > 6 quick flashes followed a longer flash 7 and then another a quick

    If the power supply microcontroller has detected an error lamp DC IN sends a blink code.
    The short means 0 and a long time means 1.
    I have your case, that means: 0000 0010

    Because the error code starts with LSB (least significant bit) to read it from behind
    -> 0100 0000 0000 0010-> 40 H (hex)
    Now, you will need to know what means 40 H

    After a few details that I found on the internet, the 40 H could be the fault of S3V output. (S3V voltage is more 3.47V)

    However, such errors are mainly related to the problem of the motherboard (internal circuit problem) and from my point of view of the party only a few replacement may fix this error.

  • Mac mini (late 2012) flashing - question mark folder recovery does not work

    Hi all

    earlier today, I upgraded my Mac mini (end 2012) to the latest version of macOS Sierra.

    After 1 hour of use, I realized that many of my plugins FCPX were not working.

    I contacted the developers, and they said does not update the plugins and they told me to go back to El Capitan.

    I decided to listen to them and try to downgrade my OS.

    I restarted the Mac and held down Cmd - R or something like that that took me to the disk utility screen.

    Then I went down to dinner, and when I returned 30 minutes later my Mac had entered the sleep mode for some reason any.

    I woke up the Mac and 40 seconds later the power went out for 5-10 minutes.

    After the blackout, I restarted my Mac that took me to a black screen with a flashing question mark folder.

    I followed some tutorials online (including how to enter get - and the recovery of internet mode), but after a while even restoration of the internet shows me the flashing question mark folder.

    I don't know what to do.

    And no - unfortunately I don't have a Time Machine backup.

    But I have a backup with all my most important files.

    Is it possible to force the Mac to reset itself or something like that?

    Help, please.

    Best regards

  • My Apple password does not work when I try to download the Flash Player

    I tried again and again download Flash Player on my Mac OS 10.9.5 and when I try to open the installation program, asked me my password and it does not work. However, I used the password to enter this community, and it worked. I use Chrome as my browser. Any help to achieve this will be highly appreciated.

    Hello Gail Rooney,

    I'm not 100% sure if you are referring to your account admin on your Mac, if you were not made me know that I would love to help with anything that anyone else. Anyway, if you need to reset your password for your admin account, so you can leave Flash Player just install, follow these steps and you should be able to reset the password of the admin account. You need to restart your computer. Then, press the command and R keys at the same time when the gray screen appears and hold them until you see the Apple logo. A low loading bar will appear under the logo. Then wait for the recovery mode to load click the utilities tab in the menu bar, select Terminal, type resetpassword, and press ENTER. Close the Terminal window and behind it, you will find the password reset utility. Everything you have to do now is to select the user account you want to reset, enter a new password or leave the field empty and click Save. Then reboot again and sign in to your account admin with the password you just put.

  • Flash audio does not work in Firefox 31.0

    Audio Flash works in chrome. Have tried without success the following:
    -Reset of Firefox
    -Reinstall the Flash plugin

    Thank you for taking your time to help out me.

    I noticed in all: plugins list for 'FutureSplash Player '. Which maybe has something to do with the problem?

    On Linux Adobe ceased support Flash for Firefox.
    There is only security update of Flash 11.2 available.
    If web pages requires a newer version of Flash then they will not work with Firefox and you would have to use Google Chrome.

    This happens with all the pages that use the Flash plugin?
    Did you check if the player has a volume slider?

  • Failed to load the YouTube video. 1 of 10 works for me. It started yesterday. I have tried rebooting, cleared the cache. Ads work, video does not work. Flash set updated to 13.

    Maybe 1 out of 10 maybe youtube videos works. My Favorites, including music videos have been working very well and now only a couple work. I cleaned my cache, restarted the computer, update flash and nothing worked. Installed chrome, did not work. I don't know what the problem is. Ads are working perfectly well...

    I just remembered something. YouTube blocks some content

  • Flash blocker does not work with Firefox 28.0

    I'm on Windows 7 Pro with 28.0 Firefox and Flash blocker 4.20.13 installed. Flash blocker doesn't block Flash in web pages. How can I get Flash Blocker to block Flash applications in web pages?

    I'm not familiar with this particular extension. The reviews seem to indicate it does not work for everyone.

    Here's how you can enable "click-to-play", a built-in feature of Firefox for Flash. This will delay the Flash start on a page, until you approve.

    To set the Flash to "Ask to activate", open the page of modules using either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a
    • Firefox orange (or the Tools menu) button > Add ons

    In the left column, click on Plugins. Search 'Shockwave Flash' and always change 'enable' to 'ask to activate '.

    When you visit a site that wants to use the Flash, you should see a notification in the address bar icon and one of the following: a link in a black rectangle in the page or an information bar slides between the toolbar and in the page area.

    Once you approve Flash on a site, all the movies on the page will be charge. If you want to control one by one, there is a different extension, designed to work with click-to-play function of Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/click-to-play-per-element/

    I hope that helps?

  • Flash does not work in FF26, it works in Chrome and IE. I reinstalled FF and Flash several times. I can't adjust the setting of local storage for Flash either.

    Flash does not work on some web sites. I never had a problem before with flash on FF in the nearly 15 years that I've used FF. Recently it has stopped working for some reason any and on some flash sites does not, NHL.com and site of kid Herotopia being just two of them. I updated FF, Adobe flash, the reinstalled version them repeatedly deleted all the files that have been stored on my laptop; that is, profiles, saved favorite nothing that I could find in user accounts and in the local app, low local and roaming data folders. What is strange, is that I can't set the local storage for flash either. When I visit the Adobe site to view the Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager I can move the scroll bar, but cannot check the: allow third-party flash content to store data on your computer. I can't do it on a Web site where the flash does not work. When I try and it changed on any site that it goes back to zero. Not sure if it is a part of the problem. I got tired of many suggestions on the pages of material here, but nothing works. I even tried this http://forums.adobe.com/message/4566499#4566499#4566499

    The other strange thing is that I used to get the "warning: script does not" prompt that displays "a script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding." You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script ends. "sometimes when I would buy on Macy's.com. This is the only site that it happened.
    I know I have only little technical knowledge, but I have tried to figure this out for a few days and do not know what is happening. The only thing I can think is that I somewhere files corrupted causing this problem. I have just updated to Windows 8.1 tonight in the hope that can help, but nothing helped. I would be very disappointing if I couldn't use FF or must go back using Chrome and FF.
    Sorry for the posting long but no solution would be much appreciated.

    Hi jscher2000,.

    Yes, I followed essentially the: Manual steps: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/968190?page=5#answer-509209 you have posted.

    And after restarting Firefox, Flash worked. Thanks again for your post I could not find this solution on the Adobe forums until you have posted the link.
    Your expertise and your time is much appreciated.

    Have you tried to disable hardware acceleration in Flash Player (protected mode does not apply to XP)?

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    • Do not click on the reset button on the start safe mode window or make changes.
  • Adobe Flash does not work with firefox

    Used Firefox with Flash v.11disabled Real Player 14 all the plug-ins, turned off the safe_mode for Flash and Youtube worked properly. Then Firefox upgraded me to 16.0.2 and Youtube does not work. When I click on a Youtube video, it does not give me any error message, just a white screen.

    Demoted Flash v.10, still does not work. But Youtube works OK with IE and Chrome.

    Clear the cache and cookies from sites that cause problems.

    "Clear the Cache":

    • Tools > Options > advanced > network > content caching Web: 'clear now '.

    'Delete Cookies' sites causing problems:

    • Tools > Options > privacy > Cookies: "show the Cookies".

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    • Do not click on the reset button on the start safe mode window or make changes.

    Try disabling hardware acceleration in Firefox.

    You can check the problems caused by the recent updates of Flash and try these:

    • disable an eventual extension of the browser for Firefox Plugin RealPlayer Record and if installed RealPlayer update
    • disable the safe_mode in Flash 11.3 and later versions
    • turn off hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin
