Question about ASUS PC Desktops

1 Answer

I use a P5L-MX motherboard. I took my computer into the shop for a cleanup and reinstall vista due to a trojan virus being apparent. When I got it back, I had no sound at all. I had 5.1 surround before, which sounded great. Alas, no more. Vista informs me that HDAUDIO is working OK, but still nothing. I have everything plugged in properly. Can anyone please HELP me?

    Dear "The Only Sol,thanks heaps for even answering my query, however, the guy at the fix-it shop assures me he did'nt open my case. I have to believe him, I think. He says all he did was uninstalled Vista Home Premium, saving my pictures and documents first. He did a cleanup of all the junk, and apparently getting rid of the trojan virus, (He explained that by doing this, the trojan disappeared and no longer registered at all). All I had to do was reload all of my programs, (Yeah,I know). But before I go ahead and do this, I'd rather have 5.1 surround sound back. The dumb thing about all of this, is Vista won't read my ASUS setup disk. What a nightmare. Thanks anyway Sol. regards Steve

If the sound drivers are alright, may be you have disabled either front panel/ back panel audio through a jumper on your mobo. Change it plug towards front / back panel & check again. Its also possible that the speakers are not working.

I AM LOOKIG FOR BEST SOLUTION ON HOW TO FIX TROJAN VIRUS IN MY RAM MEMORY


A Trojan virus can only be in your memory (RAM) if it's somewhere else on your hard drive. Your RAM loses all of the information its storing when the computer is shut off, it doesn't hold data the way a hard drive does. Back-up all of your info that you don't want to lose, and then reinstall Windows choosing the option to reformat the hard drive\partition and then install. You could try to run some free-ware virus programs on it before trying to reinstall Windows. I like AVAST Antivirus, Malwarebytes' Antimalware, & SuperAntiSpyware. There are some viruses and bugs that just can't be removed without reformatting your hard drive and reinstalling your operating system.

Computer is very slow and sometimes freezes disk cleanup and defragmenter dont improve things


Sounds like one of two things:
1) Hardware (hardrive) failure-
Could have a dead spot on your harddrive. Have you had any blue screens associated with this? If so your hard drive may be shot. Backup what you can and replace the hard drive.
or
2) Malware/trojan/spyware clogging up resources-
Download and run Spybot- Search and Destroy and run a full update and scan. Also update and run your anti-virus software. If you don't have one, or want a second opinion, search for Avast AV, great free anti-virus tool.

HOW CAN I REMOVE TROJAN VIRUS FROM MY PC?


Run your PC in safe mode with networking prompt as an administrator(because in normal mode the virus will not allow/let you to run a setup file if it's a dangerous virus).Install strong anti-virus like Kaspersky, NOD32 etc. registered version. Update the anti-virus in safe mode and also run.

I think it will help you.

Good Luck

Yes, It is infected with virues. You need to scan your computer from Trojan remover. http://www.simplysup.com/tremover/download.html

Once it is complete just restart the computer..

Important : Don't forget to make system restore point before running Trojan Remover.

Computer slow;freezing up


First choice is the RESTORE option. Installed programs will still be there (may lose desktop icon) and you can always reinstall / re update adobe if needed. After all what good is a virus program and Adobe update if you can'nt use the computer. Adobe Reader will sometimes cause slowdowns on some computers (mine) while in the browser online.
Download Spybot Search and Destroy (then update it) to find Spyware on the computer. Then download and run Adaware to seacrch for additional adware programs. These should help clean the system of some of the trash. Again I would Restore FIRST so that these will download and run effectively.
