Errors bugs and fixes (UPDATED OFTEN)
Written by: Gankutsuou - 06:35 Sep-11-2019

I mentioned a few weeks ago how I'd like for GD to have an error and fix guide for various software and hardware issues. The problems and solutions would be gathered from all the users on the site based on personal experience.

Consider this my first contribution.

 

BUG: TOUCH PAD NOT WORKING

Happened on an Acer Nitro laptop. After installing Win 10 noticed the touch pad wasn't operational. Installed all the drivers I could, but the bug wasn't fixed. To make matters more confusing the touch pad wasn't even showing up in Device Manager

After some research found out that the issue was happening to quite a few people. Apparently having the l2C setting in the BIOS set to advanced without the drivers being present will cause the touch pad to not work.

 

FIX

Most claimed that setting the I2C setting to basic will allow the touch pad to work again. So you could install the drivers and then go back into the BIOS and return the setting to advanced.

My fix was simpler. Downloaded all the Win 10 updated that I had available, and after restart the touch pad was working again. (my solution took longer, but it worked ;)

Side note, the USB ports on the Acer Nitro laptop that I worked on, were the hardest I have ever seen in my life. I was genuinely concerned that the thumb drive would break because of the force I was using to insert it, so be careful when buying that laptop. My advice would be to test it in a shop before buying one.

 

That's about it for the first one. Will add pictures and documentation later or, hope this will be of use. Have a good one.

Been a while since I wrote something here. Sorry for the long dry spell.

 

BUG: EXTERNAL HDD NOT SHOWING IN WINDOWS

So far this has happens almost every time I plug in my 3.5'' WD external HDD (mostly use it for backups).

FIX

For me the solution was, to Open Device Manager and click Scan for hardware changes. After the scan my drive shows up and works fine. Alternatively, you could unplug it and plug it in again (hoping that will fix the issue, but so far this has been the most reliable way for me). I'll do some research later on to see if there's a permanent fix for this.

 

BUG: USB KEYBOARD AND MOUSE NOT WORKING (DESKTOP PC)

In case you need fast access to your system, your best bet is using a PS/2 keyboard and mouse (provided you have them). That will circumvent the USB bug. There's also an option of using a USB to PS/2 adapter (tho I can't guaranty that the adapter will work in every case).

USB to PS/2 Adapter

The bug that disables your USB keyboard and mouse can occur for several reasons. Last time I encountered it, USB device drivers were to blame. Now there are a few tricks that can resolve the problem (the solution the will work for you will depend on the source of the problem).

FIX

  1. A simple restart
  2. Using a repair USB thumb drive (or DVD in case you have a really old system), to  repair the USB drivers
  3. Use system restore to repair the USB drivers (or what ever caused the bug). In case you don't have access to a PS/2 keyboard and mouse, you could make a request from another computer that is on your network (personally haven't done that, but I've heard that some people have had success with it)
  4. In the worst case scenario (like USB registry corruption), most people that I have talked to advised for a full system reinstall. THIS SHOULD BE A LAST RESORT

 

 BUG: LOW FPS ISSUE AND FIX FROM HATION

So I discovered something new? My Graphics card gave me low fps, but i ran high end games still and poorly. I ran cod warzone @ 60fps and below at lowest settings for example. I searched the internet and there are others with this issue and none of them has been resolved. So i started investing! Then found that my GPU was operating @ @ 99% utilization. Here was my solution I diagnosed all possible software or hardware causes. The Solution was that my power has two sets of GPU power inputs(modular) they were in set a instead of set b.

 

BUG: iPhone 10 CAN'T VIEW CONTACT NAMES

 

The issue was caused because the phone memory was completely full. You couldn't store a single picture into the phone (and the user didn't have a cloud account) or any bits of data. It somehow confused the Contacts app in the iPhone (you could still see the numbers, you just didn't know who they were - no picture or name associated with the number).

 

FIX

 

The phone become usable when we deleted some pictures (to free up space) and restarted the phone. NOTICE it didn't work on the first try. We told the phone to delete certain pictures 5 times before the command was finally acknowledged. The 5th restart made the contacts reappear.

there are billions of issues like that, mostly problems of sh!tty Windows design, I was thinking about writing similar articles too, but there's too much to cover

A journey of a thousand miles begging with a single step.


I'm aware that there are more problems the we all know, but it's worth doing non the less.

You can see I'm sleep deprived when I typeed begging instead of: begins with a single step.

Glad the msg got across anyhow.
