DEP errors, camera connection, etc.

by Dolly Wilson / September 11, 2006 3:14 AM PDT

I try to keep my laptop clean, but boy, it is a mess! When I boot, I get about six pop-ups that are Data Execution Prevention (DEP) errors? Now, when I plug my camera into the USB port, I get the "*********" (or is it "**** ding") sound, but can't access it or see it anywhere. I've tried multiple USB ports, new cable, etc. Just read where it could be a virus -- I run AVG (free) and ran Trend Micro scan last night. Still no good. Are the DEP errors related to the camera detection issue?? Help!

Usually a sign of buggy drivers. However...

You can DISABLE DEP (see google.com) until you research if there are newer drivers for your products.

Before doing that, get another opinion about pests with EWIDO and HOUSECALL then eject what they find.

Finally, usbman.com covers many usb trouble areas but that's all I write given only this amount of detail.

Some progress - - two separate issues

Housecall came up with nothing. EWIDO found 32 tracking cookies. No big deal.

After reviewing the items listed under USB in device manager, I noticed my Verizon Wireless PCMCIA card listed there. Not sure if it should be? Anyhow, I removed the card, rebooted and all of the DEP errors are gone. (By the way I counted 11 DEP errors followed by 11 matching "encountered a problem" errors, for a whopping 22 error clicks on boot up!) I'll try to resolve this with Verizon (don't laugh).

As for the camera. Still nothing. Tried all USB ports. USB storage works in all ports. Removed and re-installed camera software and drivers. USBman?

I can't comment.

Your post lack details so all I can do is note a good site about USB items.

Best of luck,

Bob

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
