When you use your hard disk defragmentation process starts but seems stuck and won't end evn after several hours. How I can remidy this?

When you use "Defragment your hard drive" the process starts but seems stuck and won't end evn after several hours.  How I can remidy this? I was already able to defragment successfully.



How do you know that never, it ends when there is no GUI on Vista for Defrag?

in vista, the defragmentation process works silently in the background

Unfortunately in vista it does not provide a GUI to show progress as it did in xp

to do this, you'll need 3rd party defrag programs

  • DSC-WX150 will stop recording at 03:00 minutes when you use the HDMI video output


    I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-WX150 camera.

    When using an output HDMI cable to view the camera to a television screen, the video movie recording function to 3:00minutes exactly every time automatically stops.

    When there is no HDMI cable plugged into the camera, it records fine 20 minutes.

    I tried changing film formats, changing the power settings, camera reset the values by default, etc., but with no difference.

    Why it only record at 03:00 minute exactly mark when you use the HDMI video output? Someone knows how to fix this?

    Thank you

    Hi tight,

    Welcome to the community of Sony!

    If I understand correctly, when you use your TV as a monitor while video recording automatically stops and does not cross the entire 29 minutes. Based on your manual, it is normal for the camera when it is connected to another device via the HDMI cable. This serves as protection for the camera.

  • How to condigure guest OS when you use net mode bridged when connecting by local security-enabled wireless network

    I am running VMWare workstation on a host with the guest OS Windows XP and ubuntu.

    I work in a place where we have a LAN wireless - security-enabled.

    When you use the NAT configuration - my OS comments doesnot seem to be able to run and use the DNS and the Windows network AD features.

    -I want to set up the guest operating system to connect to the network using the bridged mode.

    Unfortunately - the 'visible' for Windows XP network connection is reported as a wired lan connection. This means that I am not able to configure options for the connection wireless security.

    Is there a configuration missing that I forgot, I have to do on my wirtual machine, toolsthat host or vmware would allow this Setup program begin work?

    Plese - if anyone has som einput it would be greatly appreciated.

    Best regards

    Poul Christiansen

    Wireless configs should be set to the host OS, unless the wireless usb is attached directly to comments.

    For mode bridged you have, connect to the guest is actually nothing else that a wired connection and XP won't be able to use it as wireless (except usb of course).

    This means that your association and authentication to the AP will have on the host operating system linux tools.


  • Firefox crashes when you use Google as startup page

    Firefox crashes and gives me an error message general she had to close for some reasons.
    This only happens when I use Google as my home page.
    If I use another Web site as startpage all works well and I can go to Google from here and everything works.
    In short: FF hangs at startup only when you use Google as starpage, I see the Google page briefly and then crashes FF.
    I would really like any solution because I have always used Google start page and you want to keep it this way without having to start with i.e. altavista and go to google from there.

    This seems to be related to the new "doodles" with Olympic events. I hope that the problem will end this week.

  • When you use a wired keyboard, the first key I press is ignored and the following keys are recognized.

    I use Windows 7 Ultimate, with automatic updates.  This just happened recently.  I have not had this problem in the past.  I recently had problems to install a wireless adapter, but the issue has been resolved.  When I login, the password is recognized (apparently don't ignore the first key), but when you use an application, such as Google search, the first character is lost.  If I press the first button, it works.  This seems to be the same in any application.  Thanks for any help you can provide.

  • Cannot move all the files as windows explore crashes - it happens every time when you use an external hard drive (several readers have been tested and work on other machines)

    I need to move files on my laptop, but windows crashes Explorer everytime I try this. This also applies when you use an alternative program to explore. It didn't happen last week but regularly spent the last six months. It is now that I need to migrate these files (mainly the images, but also the music and office documents).

    The error in the Event Viewer log States the following: start the application failing application Explorer.EXE, version 6.0.6002.18005, time stamp 0x49e01da5, failed module unknown, version, time stamp 0x00000000, exception code 0xc0000005, offset 0x02db07e0, process id 0 x 1650 error, time 0x01ca547fd1de6851.

    Make sure that the device is compatible with Vista, the Vista Compatibility Center: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-vista/default.aspx.

    If you need to get pilots to leave the computer dealer or the manufacturer of the device (NOT of Microsoft Updates).  In fact, you must disable automatic updates in Windows Update driver as follows: http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/how-to-disable-automatic-driver-installation-in-windows-vista/. Follow these steps: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/driverssupport/ht/driverdlmfgr.htm.  Once you have the drivers, you can install them via the Manager device as follows: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/193584-device-manager-install-driver.html.  You need to find the NAS device and the NICs in particular - but it would not hurt to look at all the when you're there.

    Go to start / Control Panel / Add Hardware and select the first option (recommended) to see if the system can detect the device.  If this does not work, choose the second and provide the information requested on the device.  You will be asked for drivers - have their practice.  Follow the prompts to install the device (NAS).  Make sure that it is plugged in and turned on when you do so, or he not be recognized.  It's the hard way of installing a hardware device, but your system obviously isn't automatically recognize it then do it manually. Here is a brief tutorial on how to do so: http://www.web-articles.info/e/a/title/Windows-Vista :-Running-the-Add-Hardware-Wizard /.

  • When you use disk cleanup, drive D C and recovery should be included?

    When you use disk cleanup should you clean disk (C) operating system, and the recovery disc D. Then on drive c must only choose th files that are already enabled as the downloaded programs files and temp. Internet files or you need to clean more options?

    Do NOT run the cleaning or do anything at all on the recovery D: drive.   Do not add files, defragment, compress, chkdsk, or something else.  Let completely alone.

    Insofar as what to remove NSB C:\ drive, this decision is entirely yours.  You can add or remove options as you seem, and that you feel able to make - do as much as you can in these settings.  More your cleaning, the more you'll be available and, in some cases, it can even run your computer to start, and stop faster.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!
