Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Rundll32 stopped working

Hi
My boss a non-tech guy bought a high end Acer 6920 with Vista Ultimate installed. After it arrived in the office I was asked to configure it for him. I installed the Office 2007 SBE and configured the Outlook to our server. Outlook is the only application he works on. For a non-tech guy he would panic with a simple prompt in the screen without even reading the prompt. For as long as his outlook is working, no complains. but later after a day or 2 the computer displayed the Rundll32 stopped working message then the laptop would freeze for 2 -5 minutes. Sometimes it just freezes and display the rundll32 dialog. We returnd the unit to the supplier for replacement. After we got the new replacement it still has the same problem. Acer informe us that this is not a hardware problem. Microsoft assistance says its hardware. Please help!

IF YOU HAVE NERO INSTALLED READ THIS PART

Ok this is an easy fix. I had exactly the same problem.
1. Go to computer, your main drive, program files, common files, Ahead, DSfilter.
2. Rename "NeroVideoProc.ax" to say "1NeroVideoProc.ax"
3. Rename "NeVideo.ax" to say "1NeVideo.ax"
4. Reboot
5. Problem fixed.
That's it!
It started for me just after I installed Nero. It's not Vista.






IF YOU DONT HAVE NERO INSTALLED READ THIS

1. Click on Pearl (Start Button), in the serach box type:

msconfig

and hit the enter key on the keyboard. It should open the System Configuration Utility window.

2. Click on Services over the top and then at the bottom right corner, put a check in the "Hide all Microsoft services" checkbox.

3. Click on "Disable All" button.

4. Click on "Startup" tab, and then click on "Disable All" button again.

5. Press OK button and then "Restart" button on the following window. Let the computer restart.

6. Once you're back on the desktop, you'd get a window for System Configuration Utility. Put a check in the box "Don't Show....." and then press OK button.

7. Now, once again check the issue. If the issue is resolved, open System Configuration Windows again and then enable all the services from Services tab and then check the issue after restarting the computer in the same way as mentioned above.

8. If issue is still resolved, enable half of the Startup items from Startup tab and then check issue.

9. If issue occurs again, it means, there's a culprit in the checked startup items. But if issue doesn't occur, then issue could be with rest of the Startup items. Now, uncheck the first half startup items (that were check before), and then check rest of the half items. Check the issue again.......

10. Now, if the issue occurs, then make a note of all the names of the startup items and then follow the same procedure, for them. Now, you need to be careful, as by design the System Configuration will sort all the enable startup items to the top. So, it means all the entries would be mixed on next reboot. From now on you need to make a note of all the entries that you're enabling or disabling........

The rundll32.exe process is responsible for running DLLs and placing its libraries in the memory. The rundll32.exe process is known as a command line utility program, and it performs its embedded functions along with the rundll.exe file. Rundll32.exe works by invoking a function that is exported from a specific 16-bit or 32-bit DLL module. However the only DLLs that you can call with the rundll.exe and rundll32.exe files are the ones that are only specified to be accessed by these processes.
The rundll32.exe file operates by parsing the command line. The specified DLL is then loaded through the function LoadLibrary(). Afterwards, from the function , it gets the addresses through GetProcAddress(). The command line tail is passed when the is called. Next, the DLL is unloaded upon the return of . Finally, the rundll32.exe file exits.We strongly recommend that you run a FREE registry scan to identify rundll32.exe related errors.
if you have any question or any futher assistance you can get back to me on fixya for same

thanks

I recommend you to uninstall and reinstall the touchpad drivers from Device Manager.
Press Windows Key and R key.
Type devmgmt.msc and click on OK.
In the Device Manager expand Mouse and other pointing devices.
Right click on touchpad and select Uninstall.
Right click on the touchpad now and select scan for hardware changes.
You can even try to reinstall the new touchpad drivers for your notebook model from acer support website.

I reinstall VISTA on my laptop(ACER 6920) because the language is chinese (clean install) and I also downloaded all the drivers and applications from ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire...


Acer erecovery looks for the hidden partition as it is used for restoring the system back to factory defaults. If the hidden partition is not available, the software will not install.

Nothing to be worried about. You will not even need that software.

Acer 6920 blue ray problems


I have had the same poblems after buying my lap top from Currys. I emailed acer and all they would say is that all of the warranties have been taken over buy PC WORLD who are the same company. They then said that i should contact the tech guys. The tech guys tell you to restore to factory settings which tales off anything that you have already put on the computer. I then contacted the software tech guys £1.50 a minute line and the bloke i spoke to said that it was the fourth call that he had recieved that morning and the advice that he gave me was to return the computer as it was less than a month old and state that it was not fit for purpose. I took the lap top back to Currys and explained what i had been told to do. In the end they installed Power DVD 8 on my computer which allows me to play all blu rays on the computer. However i still can't connect the acer up to my HD eady tv without it freezing. It appears that the software supplied is absolutely **** but acer are happy to let you get on with it. The only real solution is to obtain third party software and update your graphics drivers. In time hopefully acer will release better edition of the pre installed software.
It is a real shame as the laptop is great apart from this blu ray issue which seems to be a well known problem as it is mentioned on many forums.
I hope this assists
