Re: lp 5 error

This code means there was a device failure due to the lack of an arbitrator. Open control panel, open System. Click on the Hardware button, click on Device Manager. You'll need to open each + & check for a Yellow ! point. The hard part is finding what device it belongs to. Once found right cilick on that device & uninstall. Re-start the notebook. Re-install the device drivers.
You read about this at the link provided.
If your still at odds with this, post back & we'll take another rout.

Re: lp 5 error

Would really like to know more about what equipment do you see this error, because I have seen this on a very old system and what Operative System (OS) is used.

So does the CPU handles MMX extensions?!?

I could install application, but could not run it, or uninstall it without same error as you describe, the system I have seen this on is an odd Cyrix PR 166+ running Windows 98SE.

The FAQ on application I would use, tells me a Pentium Class CPU, but what I know is there is Pentium Class CPUs without MMX and the same application running on this machine, but has MMX.
The failed system does not have MMX extension.

I also notice on Windows 98SE in MSCONFIG -> click advanced there is (the last option) with Pentium F0-error (Lock CmpXchg) needs to be unchecked specially if you have other type of processors than Intel.

I had problem on my Pentium 200 MMX and same application first but after uncheck that it did work, could install, run and uninstall it without problems.

Dell latitude d830 screen not showing but external screen showing and on device manager NVIDIA QUADRO says windows stoped this because it reported a problem error code 43 and the drivers are up to date

Error code 43 means a driver either didn't load properly, is the wrong one or is missing.
Check video driver by running in safe mode. If it still won't work the laptop screen, replace the screen after checking it isn't the backlight by shining a bright light at the screen to see if anything is showing.

Lp5 error while downloading

You might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

Error code lp5

Ours says that there was an error while "unpacking program" contact author. So as far as we can tell, while whatever you were loading was decompressing, something went wrong and you need to contact the author/manufacturer.

My pc crashes randomly.

Go into the Event Viewer and see what kind of errors are reported there. Instructions here and here. Let us know what error codes you find.
Did you delete Edata or uninstall it. You should be using the uninstall command from Programs & Features, or you're going to jam up your system.
I'd say it's time to do some maintenance. Clean out your temp files by running disk cleanup, then scan your system files for corruption by following these instrucitons.
That may take a while, but it's worth it if your games run smoothly and don't hang, isn't it?
Then get back to us with the results, and we'll take it from there...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
