Fixed –Available for specific video sites error- Chromecast in Windows 10 / 11

While trying to cast a tab from Chrome Browser on Windows to Android  TV, we started getting the below error.

“Available for specific video sites”

Casting was working properly from the android phone, infect even from the chrome browser it had been working properly earlier

As it turned out, setting the system’s date /time correctly on the Windows Laptop fixed the casting issue.

Hope it helps..


Fixed – Trusted Platform Module has malfunctioned, with Error Code 80090030 in Microsoft Teams

Recently while trying to login into Microsoft Teams we got the below error –

  • As suggested in the different articles – we didn’t find any Teams Account Credentials to be removed.

  • Windows update also didn’t fix the issue.
  • Neither updating the driver from Devic Manager.








  • Creating EnableADAL key with Value data 0 also didn’t work.

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common

Expand the Common key and select the Identity subkey. Right-click on the space on the right side and go to “New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.”

Right-click on the newly created value and select Rename. Type EnableADAL.

By default, the Value Data of EnableADAL should be 0. If not, double-click on it and enter 0 in its Value Data. Click OK to save the changes.

  • tpm.msc è Prepare the TMP and Clear TPM also didn’t work.

Cryptographic Services were also running properly.

In our case, we were getting below additional error.

Eventually disconnecting the work account worked in our case.

The other solution that worked temporarily for us was to uninstall and reinstall the Microsoft Teams.

Hope it helps..


Fixed – Sign in required. Your device is having problems with your work or school account. Sign in again to access your organizations resources

Recently we were getting the below pop up in Windows every time after restart.

The fix was to Disconnect the work / school account.

Navigate to Accounts è Access work or school

Click on Disconnect the work or school acount.

That fixed the issue for us.

Hope it helps..



Fixed- Noisy Fan in Windows 10 / 11

Recently my laptop started making lot of noise continuously, for no obvious reason (it was not getting heated).

One solution that helped a lot was to set

Fan Always On = Disabled in System Configuration setting in the BIOS Setup.

Also came to know about this wonderful utility –

Advanced Fan Control

And lastly cleaning the dust

Hope it helps ..


Fixed – Taskbar overlapping / showing in Full Screen in Windows 10

Occasionally we will face the issue where the Taskbar is overlapping the maximized screen / full screen.

The trick that has always worked for us is to open the Task Manager (right click the tool bar and select Task manager)

Right click and Restart the Windows Explorer.

Hope it helps..

Fixed – Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete – Windows 10

Hi all, sharing the recent experience with the below error

A couple of days back my laptop, unfortunately, got slipped from my hand, and then on starting the laptop gave the below messages

  • “Preparing automatic repair.” then
  • “Diagnosing your PC.” then
  • “Repairing disk errors. This might take over an hour to complete.”

After waiting for almost 6 hours, the message was still the same.

Another error that I got performing the Hard drive self-test from BIOS was

“Hard Disk Short DST: Failed”

Restarting and trying the below Advanced Options also didn’t work

There was no restore point found, the factory reset also failed.

Reset continued till 30 % and then rolled back.

Running in safe mode brought the same Repairing disk error message.

Running check disk command

chkdsk c: /r and /f displayed

File record segment is an unreadable error.

The only option left was to take it to the local repair shop who checked the health of the disk which was showing around 57 %.

The only fix that worked here was a clean install of Windows 10 and considering the health of the disk eventually replaced the disk as well. (HDD with SDD)

Hope it helps..
