@chakramed Nope I didnt find a fighter crazier than UMvC3 in terms of combos. However to thank your efforts I marked your reply as best answer. Oh well. Hopefully a new dev will make an even more combo heavy fighter someday.

Hi @Aravi

I thank you for replying, however that game (Tiny Troopers) is a strategy game, not a fighting game :D, for this question I am looking for fighting games only. I wanted to see if there is more crazy than UMvC3 out there but seems like that isn't the case sadly.

@chakramed
Yes, I did understand your post that you aren't that much into gaming. However, sorry to tell you that 2603 hit combo was originally a glitch (whiffing ultra enders continously) and it has been since removed from the game. Thanks for the ongoing support however, if no new games are found I will mark your answer as best answer.

@chakramed
Yeah I saw that vid and I also do know the ridiculous opportunities the UMvC3 combo system allows you to perform. It's amazing and an even bigger reason to be hyped for the release on March 7.

From what I've seen Nitroplus also allows some cool combos with the assists and the Blast system.

Tekken 2 and 3? It is possible to combo that much there? I didn't know that... most combos that I've seen in TTT2 (Tekken Tag Tournament 2, not on PC) for example stop at around 12 hits or so.

Euask has switched to keeping one category, Computer and Internet for a while now. So that means you can still view older topics but all new topics go into the Computer and Internet category and is also the one you first view by default when opening the page. Hope this helps!

replied the topic Cell phone battery drain out very soon created by waqas786z

@waqas786z
If your phone is a smartphone you can install an app that eliminates running background processes for one. I use Battery Doctor and it's quite helpful for me.

The other way is to dim the screen brightness to a level you can still see it clearly, it often helps a lot.

Disable Wi-Fi, Bluetooth etc... and double check they aren't active.

I've read that fully charging your battery from low levels (performing full charging) would help, but then again I've read elsewhere that this actually shouldn't be done and you should never let a Li-ion battery reach low levels (>20%) and then fully charge from there. You could try both and see what helps, perhaps.

@ha14 @Aravi
UPDATE : YES! The issue has been finally resolved! I am thinking it was the cables as they were a little loose, I reseated them, ran MyDefrag then ran Disk Optimize and it finished, it's also fast now and I am able to start Steam downloads without the hard drive disappearing anymore!

Once more, thanks for both of your assistance. I was thinking for a while it was an infection or that Wondershare program when it was likely the cable all along!
Again, both of you helped a lot, but ha14 responded earlier and more often so this time I am picking his/her answer as best answer, if that's okay with you. I'll mark the answer mentioning cables so if others have the same problem they can try it if it helps!

Well, I reseated the cables but after just trying Disk Optimize it was very slow again. I suspected the same problem will happen once more so I simply went ahead to do a defrag with MyDefrag instead. The drive did not disappear yet but I will post more info as it comes.

I have no problem booting in (windows is on C drive which is an SSD) and I can browse the net etc... normally. It's just the HDD I am having problems with.

I don't have too much experience "digging inside" computers but I'll try to check inside if it's the cable and reseat the drive.

@Aravi @ha14
Okay, time to narrow down the problem a bit. From my observations, the HDD disappears, if :
- I try to defrag it, it disappears in a few mins after starting the process
- Running games, it will eventually disappear randomly but in this case it's very rare, it also takes a LONG time.
- Downloading something to it, in this case it will also disappear after a short while

It will NOT disappear if I leave it idle. So? What do you suspect?

In all of those cases it can be still seen in Quick Access, marked with a question mark without the name (Local Disk) but it still has it's letter (D:),I just can't open it or any apps which are on the D drive. It also comes back after restart.

@ha14
I did not try a driver install because I cant find driver good for my model. Also didnt know that HDDs had drivers too.

Cant change HDD letter otherwise all appa will stop functioning.

When it disconnects it is gone from the BIOS and cant be seen in device browser either.

Sorry about mapping, I thought that is just simply reconnecting the drive.

@ha14 @Aravi Yeah, that boot defrag seems like a good idea.However, now I am really out of ideas about this problem as the drive, yet once again, disappeared when trying to defrag with Disk Optimize (win 10 feature). I'll write it again that I CAN see the drive in Quick Access, and it still HAS got the drive letter but neither the drive's name, it's properties (like remaining free space) and I can't open it. It cannot be seen in Device Manager either until next restart.

It may be also that it just simply disconnects for some reason. Should I try mapping the drive to see if that "brings it back"?

@Aravi @ha14 I edited my previous reply a bit. It could be also that the HDD is failing perhaps? I think of this because Win 10 Disk Optimize is still struggling to defrag it (in fact it goes up 1% percent every 5-10 mins or so) but HD Tune showed perfect results. Nevertheless I'll check the cables, hopefully that will solve the problem.

@Aravi @ha14 Just when I was thinking the issue stopped... the drive disappeared yet again when I was trying to make a video on it. Does the drive disappear upon heavier load or... I don't know now and can't understand either. Once again the drive is acting weird, only can be seen in quick access without a name and marked as a question mark. Hopefully a restart will fix it, but what could cause this in the first place?

Checked safe mode but the folder wasn't there. Probably deleting ALL of it's registry entries did the trick because even search can't find it now. However that is the problem as it wasn't actually the culprit, even more so because I tried to use Filmora quite a bit earlier and those files were on the computer for a long time yet the issue only started yesterday.

What else could be causing this? (Also like I suspected the drive did reappear on restart but still no idea what is making it disappear)

I have read that something called PUIS might be a cause of this, can it be seen in BIOS or disabled? https://www.mzzt.net/2014/11/25/the-case-of-the-disappearing-hard-drives/

Also most of the sites that I read often point to this being a bad SATA cable.... So tomorrow I'll try to open up the case and attach the drive to a different SATA port, hopefully it'll help.

@Aravi @ha14
Alright, I managed to remove the registry entries (almost all of them, dll files still remain of it) but that folder is still invisible and I don't know how to delete it. I am sure it was the reason of the freezing, if we can remove it the issue is likely resolved!

Upon reboot I got a THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER BSoD again. Otherwise the comp is running pretty good again. I haven't been able to successfully resolve this error however. Does it only occur to CPU/GPU or other hardware too?

@Aravi @ha14
I don't know if it's connected to the issue but I seem to have some kind of WSHelper program on my computer. I don't remember ever installing it, so it's likely an undercover infection perhaps? I can't access it's path either even if hidden folders are on (it is in Program Files/Common Files/Wondershare but the wondershare folder cannot be accessed in Explorer) so maybe that is the program causing instabilities? I also detected some registry entries of it but I am not sure what to remove.

Advice?

@Aravi @ha14
Thanks for the replies. I ran sfc /scannow yesterday and it said : "Windows did not find any integrity violations."
Will run it again just to be sure though, and check out the registry section.

Alright, I checked the registry. I indeed found the entry Aravi mentioned but I have a default REG_SZ and a DisableExpectionChainValidation REG_DWORD entry (my Win 10 is Hungarian). Which one should I delete?

@ha14 @Aravi
Yes, I can access the hard drive now without problems, it shouldn't be HDD failure either as HD Tune reported back perfect results. I also have a weird symptom where (totally randomly) Explorer (windows explorer) totally freezes and I can't do anything whatsoever, not even closing open "apps" as even Task Manager freezes, only hard reboot works... but I did NOT get disk read error or anything afterward.

Thoughts?

@Aravi @ha14
I think I got the problem nailed down. It's probably loose parts/cables. At first the computer refused to boot and got me boot error. BIOS didn't detect the HDD either. Now I moved computer around a bit and it booted fast again and I accessed HDD with no problem... Any thoughts? I am not a hundred percent sure about it as shutdown was a little bit slower than expected though.

@ha14

Good to know that recycle bin damage actually happens.
Boot time is normal, it was the disk speed and the speed of deleting things that were annoying me. Also sometimes programs hanging for a few seconds before going back to normal, mainly Firefox.

Will check some things after MyDefrag finishes the defragging/optimizing and I will restart too to see if I get disk read error again.

It's actually the games' files which are marked as unmovable by MyDefrag. Anything to say about this?
