  • Satellite 2450-201: slow startup and shutdown




    Maybe you've connected to some external devices to slow down the start-up procedure. You can also try to disable all the hardware components you n t need (modem. IrDA). Also check out which device is defined in a first start time (I hope that the HARD drive).

    For slow closing is responsible only running processes that should be forced disconnected. It all depends on your own configuration and you are using external devices.

    Hi Nathalie,.

    Thanks for the reply and the link to the article. I appreciate it. While I was not having trouble to download updates, it was one of the update of the files froze during installation. I had gel resulting set before your answer.

    I'm not sure what I did to fix it, but the installed annoying file itself. Here are the steps I took to learn that annoying file has been installed:

    "I restarted my computer.

    "then stop it showed that he was trying to install the file again

    "I hit the reset button on my machine.

    "My machine is restarted, I received the message that my machine was not correctly stop and choose Safe mode or start normally.

    "I chose boot normally.

    "These files correctly installed and gave a message requesting to restart."

    "I rebooted my system manually.

    "Back in my office, I manually tried to install the file in question.

    "It gave me a message that it was already installed.

    How he installed himself is a mystery. Other than on the first attempt to update my machine, it has NEVER included in my another attempt to update. Anyway, my machine is purring along as if nothing had happened.

  • Windows 7 to windows 8 Easy slow transfer and buggy

    Trying to transfer files from a computer laptop windows 7 to a windows laptop 8 (the two Samsungs BTW)

    After following the instructions for a network connection and put the magic number in the windows box 8

    They (as in laptops) check for Updates of simple file transfer and rub a line from 0 to 400 and something

    The box of windows 8 and then stops and displays a weird message on the other laptop being in another language (the two are set to English (UK), kbd UK UK local kbd US well and really removed)

    Click OK in this dialog box, however, and she proceeds to transfer files very slowly

    I tried on a 802.11n wireless and then a 100 M Ethernet wired and he chose to transfer about 700Kbs

    +++Therefore the 60 GB will be around 200 hours of transfer.

    More than a week BTW, a week in which two laptops can be used.

    Should I go and get an iPad?

    Hi Michael,

    The transfer time depends on the size of the file/disc that you are trying to transfer from one computer to another computer.

    I suggest that you put the computer in a clean boot state, and then try to transfer files and check if the problem persists. Clean boot will help you determine which third party/PPP program is causing this problem.

    Note: After the boot minimum troubleshooting step, see the "How to reset the computer to start as usual after a clean boot troubleshooting" section in the link provided to return the computer to a Normal startup mode.

  • Explorer Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close, sorry for the inconvenience into account only one user. Other user accounts properly.

    This problem deals with only one of my user accounts, where the user accounts function correctly.  When my wife logs in to his user account, it receives the error "windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close, sorry for the inconvenience."  No ICONS or deskbar charge upward; However, my daughter and my user account functions properly.

    I did a system successfully restore to a previous point, but the problem remains.

    If you are still having problems with Windows Explorer crashing, I suggest to consider the suggestion offered by ShadowKat:

    "Hello people, it seems that some guys out there are still having trouble with this random crashes. I have the same problem, except that it happens every time that I go to my media files on my NAS. It seems that there is a bug or something with windows that causes this problem when you access a folder to storage media like mine, especially when the size of the file is very large (archive all my discs of film there for convenience and continuous =), about 1 TB of data). Windows capable of generating thumbnail images for your files and blocks the Explorer as well.

    I solved this by going to my computer > click the "Organize" (upper-left) > folder and search options > view tab check "Show icons, never thumbnails" option and uncheck the "display file on the photos." This prevents windows to generate images and solved the problem for me. Less visually flashy Yes, but at least not need a cloth and restart is).
    I hope this helps and good luck!

  • Wil Windows 7 does not start and is not able to solve the problem


    I tried several things at this stage. I have a Toshiba that windows is not able to solve the problem on its own when starting. InsydeH20 BIOS, I have ensured that the system must start using the HARD disc as shown.

    When the problem started he said that the problem could have been caused due to a media device may have been connected to the computer and that Windows could not fix the problem automatically. I was then able to enter the menu to try to do a system restore; It did not work. From that moment, I opened windows to use the F8 key and was able to start using the corrupted files, but now after a update tried to install all I get is a black screen with a white line of underscore flashing in the top left of my screen.

    I downloaded an ISO file for Windows 7 from my other laptop and was able to boot from there to get to the point where I would be able to try a system restore, use the prompt, etc., but even once it is not solved the problem.
    At some point, the screen showed that there is a cable that is not connected or something, I don't not entered all of this, but I do not know how to check this part of it. Could someone please give me direction from here to what I can do?

    Thank you

    > However now after a tried update install all I get is a black screen with a white flashing line of underscores in the upper left corner of my screen.

    This is a typical symptom for a faulty HARD drive.
    I had the same cursor blinking in the upper left corner and finally I could solve this problem using the new HARD disk.

    This happens if the portable computer is trying to boot from LAN. This happens because the OS on the HARD drive is not bootable, and this happens especially if the HARD drive is malfunctioning

    In my opinion, you need to change the HARD drive.
