  1. SO i awoke this morning to find my Main pc wouldnt boot. At all Power comes on, PSU (new) fan rotates, can hear the HDD powering up gfc card fan starts to spin niceley- only i get treated to a long continous pc speaker post beep and the monitor is blank- doenst even get to bios. PC: Packard bell IX9600 Intel dual core 2 quad 3 gb 667mhz ram (ddr2) Nvidia 9600GS gfx Seagate Barracuda 7200 HDD (750 gb) WIndows vista 32 home premium (packard bell dont give you 64 bit verisoneven for a 64 bit pro!!) Ive re-seated the ram and videocard, Changed the ram around in the 2 slots, inserted new matching ram into the slots under all possble configuratons. Any help as to what u think this could be would be much appreciated- im thinking dead ram chip on the GFX ?? or 2 dead ram slots (unlikely) Mobo is a focxon 775 socket mirco atx Bios is a phoenix award and have check the manufacers website simplay says the beep is a "memory problem". but this doesnt seem to make a lot of sense as i have new ram and am still getting the issue. Any help would be legendary=D

It finds the network fine, but when i attempt to connect i get the following error: Wireless Association Failed because windows did not recieve any response from the wireless router or acces point. Im running Vista home premium 32 bit and using a Zyxel G-202 wireless usb adapter to connect to the router, however my laptop running Xp has no issues connecting at all any further info anyone can elp requires il be happy to provide:) *edited spelling thanks again

  7. ive got the bugger!!! right i installed process explorer to examine the process tree of the svchost.exe in question(luckilly it was running at 99percent cpu so i found the right one. the pid of the svchost in question is PID1396. the sub processes running within it are all from system 32 and are all legit processes, i checked by disabling the process, my theme went back to a very retro looking windows and a few other things went wrong coz id just killed processes that were needed. there is one process path cwindowspchealthhelpctrpchsvc.dll im fairly certain this is the culprit and was wondering if anyone has any idea how i get rid of it do i delete or what?
  8. interestingly i have just plugged into a different socket on the router and i am now running faster. however i am in safe mode so any trojan/spyware/viruses wont be running. so my svchost doesn't glitch. hmm ill post again with speed in normal running mode heres my safemode stats Your connection is: 512 Kbps or 0.5 Mbps You downloaded at: 63 kB/s You are running: 9 times faster than 56K and can download 1 megabyte in 16.25 second(s) Member Ident:Username:paulC1986 CompID:7535454292 Test Time:: 2007/05/08 - 6:05pm Test Browser and OS info: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070309 Firefox/ Test ID: GUX9VW364 (if this is a screenshot go to testmy.net to see if this is fake) Diagnosis ^info^: May need help : running at only 18.98 % of your hosts average (ntl.com) This was tested from a 579 kB file and took 9.265 seconds to complete

  12. hi guys me posting agen lol i have a problem that i think is quite common with windows xp sp2 every so often for no apparent reason one of the svchost.exe processes running in task manager window is really hammering my cpu and makes it impossible to do anything else until its finished doing whatever it is its doing. now my mate says that svchost.exe is a service host and aloows many other vital windows processes to function such as sound etc. combined with my low internet speed is this a virus? is there any way i can look into whats is using the host and see if the process is legit eg windows update or summat? my specs are amd sempron 2400+ 512 ddr ram (400mhz) 3dfx nvidia geforce 6200 pci graphics card( a b*tch to get working) d-link gigabit ethernet card running windows xp sp2 (yes i know its rubbish but i am a poor student who wastes his money on partying lol)
  13. hmm apologies for my newbie post im running an amdsempron 2400+pc with 512 ram and a d-link 1gigabit ethernet card my provider used to be ntl but is now virgin 20meg connection deal with cable t.v. i am currently virus scanning in safe mode and have also found an issue where my network connections folder was empty but i think i may have resolved this, any ideas on whats wrong
