Crash by phantom installation. WT?

25 April 2017 - 12:48 AM

I was playing Elite Dangerous Horizons.

Things slowed a bit. Like "Can't connect to Mission Server"

It froze after that one.


I decided to look at event viewer in control panel after re-booting.

The event viewer showed about 5 lines of Error with "Installing Printer Driver"


Hey there, nothing was being installed. I checked Services and there is nothing listed that could install an Epson printer driver.


Hey people? Got any ideas please?

Seagate Expansion Portable drive

02 April 2017 - 01:34 AM

Hi all,

This drive was purchased to do the win10 backups. But win10 backups are not as easy as win7.

I was advised to do something, somewhere, by someone. Didn't go that road. Not worried about backups ATMO.


Part number is PN:1D6AP6-500 1 TB


Windows see it, and recognizes it. But kept saying Backup drive was disconnected. (It is connected)

I could not do a second backup so wiped and formatted the drive.

Tried again. But could only do an image of C:\

But then the drive says 27.2 GB free of 31.9 GB (Bit small for a 1 TB drive ??????????)

I have to remove the drive under normal circumstances as it tries to boot repair the computer.

I did a drive check and it says drive has errors. I try to fix errors and it says drive has no errors.


I really think this drive needs to be hung on a gun range. ( I'm not allowed to use)


Should I bin the drive?

Windows 10 Backup?

16 March 2017 - 03:47 PM

Hi all,

Windows 10 has been good to me. So just been gaming my life away.

But ... I keep getting a message to re-connect my backup drive, Its a Seagate Expansion Portable drive. USB 1TB.


Windows recognizes it. I can read it and write to it.

In the meantime Win10 says it uses some other drive to do it's incremental backups. (Using space, I know not where)


I would prefer to do backups myself whenever I feel like it.

I did a windows image backup to the drive, and it is still on the drive. (dated 3rd/2/17)

This problem has been going on for almost a year.

The backup section tells me to do a win 7 restore or something. (I did a clean install from the free win 10 back when ...)

I suppose it is not a real clean install.

Anybody able to tell me what to do please?

Hello to everyone.

Gotta wish you all a Happy New Year.

I have been playing Elite Dangerous Horizons for the last year. I don't know what the average daily use is, but I have done 8 or 10 hours.

Recently I realized that since Windows 10, I have had no problems with the rig for over a year. This, plus gaming has made me forget all the helpful people in OC Club.

Just wanted to thank you all again for the cyber friendship and let you know I haven't dropped off the twig yet.

Regards from Mike.

New drivers from Geforce

30 October 2016 - 12:57 AM

Hello people, Long time no see!

I am wondering what is the best latest driver for an ASUS 980 strix.

I looked at the Geforce forums and there seems some issues being reported.

My driver is 369.09

It has been working fine. (Probably why you forget who I am) (Don't remember? That old guy from Australia)

New games might work better, but you guys have always worked things out very well.

The latest, 375.70 seems a fair way up the ladder. (Long as no rungs are busted)


If you can find the time, please give a bit of a heads up, please.

Regards from Mike.
