Emachine will not run anything


Rundll32.exe errors typically occur in response to the inability of Windows to access an application, program or file as the result of a corrupted or missing DLL (Dynamic Link Library) file or in response to a rundll32.exe virus that has been designed to look like a normal Windows process.

Here are the easiest ways to fix rundll32.exe errors.
Click "Ctrl + Alt + Delete" on your computer's keyboard to open the Task Manager window.

Click the "Processes" tab and search for a rundll32.exe program.
If one is running and appears to be accessing a lot of your system's resources, click "End Process" as it is likely a malicious program and not a true Windows program.


Run software to seek out, detain and remove viruses, malware, spyware and adware. Often these malicious programs corrupt DLL files or cause them to be deleted or moved and, as mentioned, some rundll32.exe programs may in fact be viruses on your system.

Reboot your computer to update any changes you may have made recently to your files and programs.
Many programs and applications require a reboot for successful installation.

Uninstall a recently installed or changed program or application and then reinstall it using the default settings.

An installed program may not have loaded properly, an installation via the Internet may have been interrupted enough to create errors or the program may have a bug.

If you uninstalled a program and see a rundll32.exe error, reinstall the program and then uninstall once more.

Retain the services of a Microsoft certified technician, if all else fails, to review and fix your system's Registry.

How ifix a fatal error


Below is a listing of the more commonly experienced processor exceptions ranging from 00 to 0F.

00 = Divide Fault
Occurs if division by zero is attempted or if the result of the operation does not fit in the destination operand.

02=NMI interrupt
Interrupt 2 is reserved for the hardware Non-Maskable-Interrupt condition. No exceptions trap through interrupt 2.

04=Overflow trap
Occurs after an INTRO instruction has executed and the OF bit is set to 1.

05=Bounds Check fault
The array Index is out of range

06=Invalid Opcode fault
This error can be caused by one of the below conditions.

  1. Processor attempting to decode a bit pattern that does not correspond to any legal computer instruction.
  2. Processor attempts to execute an instruction that contains invalid operands.
  3. Processor attempts to execute a protected-mode instruction while running in virtual 8086 mode.
  4. Processor attempts to execute a LOCK prefix with an instruction that cannot be locked.

07=Copressor not available fault.
This error can occur if no math coprocessor is present. This error can also occur when the math coprocessor is used and a task switch is executed.

08=Double Fault.
This error occurs when processing an exception triggers a second exception.

09(OD)=Copressor Segment Overrun.
Floating point operand is outside the segment.

10(0Ah/0A)=Invalid Task State Segment Fault
Can be caused by a number of possibilities as Task State Segment contains a number of descriptors.

11(0Bh)=Not Present Fault
The Not Present interrupt allows the operating system to implement virtual memory through the segmentation mechanism. 0B fault occurs when this segment is not available.

12(0Ch)=Stack Fault
Occurs when instruction refers to memory beyond the limit of the stack segment.

13(Odh)=General Protection Fault
Caused by any condition that is not covered by any of the other processor exceptions. The exception indicates that this program has been corrupted in memory generally resulting in the immediate termination of the program.

14(Oeh)=Page Fault
Occurs when a paging protection rule is violated (when the retrieve fails, data retrieved is invalid or the code that issued the fault broke the protection rule for the processor).

16(10h)=Coprocessor error fault
Occurs when an unmasked floating-point exception has signaled a previous instruction.

17(11h)=Alignment Check Fault
Only used on 80486 computers. Caused when code executing at ring privilege 3 attempts to access a word operand that is not divisible by four, or a long real or temp real whose address is not divisible by eight.



Find out the reason of Fatal Error if that is due to Software related then go in safe mode and uninstall the software recently installed or udate them/patch them. or if the same is related to hardware then unplug the recently added hardware,

This fault can be caused by so many different things:
You should start by tracing back through the recent history of hardware, software, drivers or settings changes to the computer between now and the last time that the computer was working properly to eliminate as many items as possible from the long list of possibilities below so you can isolate the precise cause.

Virus or spyware or other malware infection;Overheating due to insufficient number of internal cooling fans;Dry or insufficient paste between the Central Processing Unit (CPU) and the heat sink/CPU cooling fan;Failed or disconnected CPU cooling fan;Dust blocking input or output of cooling air inside the computer case;Dust blocking the input of cooling air to the CPU heat sink by the CPU cooling fan;Device conflict;Device driver conflict;Corruption of Windows system files;Corrupted Windows Registry during registry editing;Multiple installed anti virus programs in conflict with one another;Multiple installed Firewall problems in conflict with one another;Multiple installed anti malware programs in conflict with one another;Incorrect Firewall settings;Corrupted interrupted or incomplete Windows upgrade setup process;Corrupted interrupted or incomplete Windows repair installation keeping previous files and settingsCorrupted interrupted or incomplete Windows recovery operation;Corrupted interrupted or incomplete Windows Service Pack upgrade process;Corrupted interrupted or incomplete System Restore operation;Corrupted interrupted or incomplete Windows Automatic Updates shutdown configuration process;Corrupted interrupted or incomplete Windows Automatic Updates restart configuration process;Corruption of essential Windows system files by enabling compression to increase HDD free space;Accidental deletion of essential system files;Underpowered Power Supply Unit (PSU);Incorrectly installed Random Access Memory (RAM);Incompatible RAM;Incorrectly installed graphics card;Incorrectly installed expansion card;Internal devices incorrectly connected to the motherboard;Incorrect motherboard jumper settings;Basic Input Output System (BIOS) corruption;Incorrect device IRQ (Interrupt Request) settings in BIOS;Bad hard disk drive (HDD) sectors;Physically damaged HDD;Motherboard solder points short circuiting on a loose screw or a misaligned motherboard mount.

Everytime i start up the computer it beeps 3-4 times, and the monitor says vga input not connected...whats could be the problem?


here are the beep codes for your exact dell model. this should give you a starting point on finding out what the problem is.

Beep Codes Your computer might emit a series of beeps during start-up if the monitor cannot display errors or problems. This series of beeps, called a beep code, identifies a problem. One possible beep code (code 1-3-1) consists of one beep, a burst of three beeps, and then one beep. This beep code tells you that the computer encountered a memory problem.
Reseating the memory modules may fix the beep code errors in the following table. If the problem persists, see "Contacting Dell" in your Owner's Manual for instructions on obtaining technical assistance.
Code
Cause
1-3-1 through 2-4-4
Memory not being properly identified or used
4-3-1
Memory failure above address 0FFFFh

If you hear one of the following beep codes, see "Contacting Dell" in your Owner's Manual for instructions on obtaining technical assistance.

I can not get the CD window to operate on my computer. How can I get it to open.


I suppose you are talking about the cd Drawer itself.
You can mechanically open it by inserting a paperclip wire through that tiny hole found on the front of the CD drawer or flap.
A slight pressure will release the latch.
THIS is done WITH THE POWER OFF.

Rather like when you poke your fingers through the grill of a car to release the secondary safety latch.

SCSI/RAID Host Controller/Driver cannot be found


Windows cannot find the correct drivers for this device. So, let's research a little bit.

Are you using SATA or RAID on the computer? If not, there is nothing that needs fixing.

If you are, then reinstall the RAID software from your motherboard installation disk, which should repair this issue.

If you do not have the driver installation disk from your motherboard, for whatever reason, go to their website. Almost every motherboard manufacturer provides easy access to drivers.

good luck

Unable to load Roxio Creator 2009. Message says 'wizard was interrupted, your system has not been modified'. My operating system in Vista Home Premium.


During the installation of DirectX 9 portions of Creator 2009, the installation halts, it perhaps tries to roll back, gives an error....wizard was interrupted ... and cannot be completed.

Resolution
Open My Computer (or Computer for Vista users) from your Start menu.

Go to C: drive -> Windows folder -> System32 folder.

Look for a file called dsetup.dll in the System32 folder.

Rename the file to "dsetupOLD.dll" or delete the file.

Reinstall Creator 2009 and follow the on-screen instructions.

It helped some..

I just completed an order for Norton Antivirus 2008 on the internet and received confirmation of my order. I am, however, confused. I sat at my computer through the download and installation; however,...


Hello fayerogers02

This is process is confusing for many people. So, don't feel like The Lone Ranger.

Actually, you'll need to click on the "download" link in the email sent to you by Symantec in order to download your new software. What you have done so far is to purchase the product along w/ a subscription for antivirus definitions updates for one or more years.

Usually, the course of action is to uninstall previous versions of their software. However, Symantec's installation processes have gotten pretty good about letting the user know if the previous version of the product needs to be uninstalled.

Often times, the installation process of a newer version of a Symantec product will take care of uninstalling its predecessor for you.

IF you have purchased a newer version of the SAME Symantec product (e.g. Norton Antivirus), then I recommend you download the new product and run the install.

See if it will take care of the uninstall of the previous version for you. If you need to uninstall the previous version yourself, you will be prompted to do so.

IF, however, you have purchased a DIFFERENT product that happens to also INCLUDE Norton Antivirus, please, don't run the install yet. Instead, post back here and let me know exactly what each of the two Symantec products are called (the older and the newer one) and I'll instruct you in how to handle the installation process of the newer one.

If you have ANY more questions at all, please, post back here and let us know. We'll be more than happy to continue to assist you.

Please, wait until you have everything you need and you no longer need our assistance b4 assigning a rating.

If I answered your questions and you have no other questions or need of our assistance on this topic...would you kindly take just a moment to close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my "solution"? I would be very grateful for your generosity and show of appreciation.

Thank you once again for using FixYa! Have a beautiful day.
