This is a simple but effective registry hack that has been tried and tested several times by me and it works!!
If you don’t believe me then try this for yourself!
1 – Start menu/run/ type “regedit” and press enter,
this will take you to the registry editor
2 – Now follow this directory:
3 – When you get to WPAEvents in the righthand column there should be “OOBETimer”
right click it and go to “modify”
Change the numbers in there to :
FF D5 71 D6 8B 6A 8D 6F d5 33 93 FD (this works with Windows XP Home and Pro, both 32 and 64bit versions)
4 – When you’ve entered them, right click on the file “WPAEvents” and go into “permissions”
5 – In there highlight “SYSTEM” and underneath it check the two boxes under “deny” and click “OK”
6 — Run then enter oobe/msoobe.exe /a
Uninstall Synaptics driver. Everything will work again.

Open up notepad, click on File, Open, browse to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and open hosts
Delete anything you see other than this:

# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a ‘#’ symbol.
# For example:
# 18.104.22.168 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 22.214.171.124 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
To import .nk2 files into Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016, follow these steps:
Note The .nk2 file must have the same name as your current Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016 profile. By default, the profile name is “Outlook.” To check the profile name, follow these steps:
Note After you import the .nk2 file, the contents of the file are merged into the existing nickname cache that is currently stored in your mailbox.
Note The .nk2 file is renamed with a .old file name extension on the first start of Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016. Therefore, if you try to re-import the .nk2 file, remove the .old file name extension.
Open a command prompt with administrative privileges. Enter “powercfg.exe -h off” no quotations. Also set Paging file to 0 in advanced settings.
I recently had one that would not post to video, so all functions were useless. Eject key, no go. Power on while left clicking mouse, no go. Command and E, no go. No OS and no post so using Disk Utility or a command line, no go. Since I didn’t want to take the entire machine apart I leaned it to its side, pushed a piece of cardboard in the slot to stop the disk from spinning and then pushed Command E, popped right on out. Thank God for cardboard.
