Preferred Solution: Kicked Off Line

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am looking into getting a phone in-line noise filter for my 56K modem line (NOT DSL). But I'm not sure how well these things work.

I contacted the phone company and they recommended to get one to try, if it works. The "noise" is not coming from the house line, it is from the line in the street that can't be fixed (Says the AT&T/Verizon).

So a phone line noise filter is my option right now. How well do these things work?

Thanks for the help.

I get this DSL line into my house. It goes to the "DSL" connection on a Thomson TG546v-v7 Gateway. Then, a LAN cable goes from the "Ethernet" 1 connection on the Gateway to the "Internet" connection on a Linksys WRT54GH Router. The Internet Connection Type on the Router is set up as Static IP.

I'v read that the Gateway is to communicate between different network layers.
But would it be possible to set the Gateway up as a Router also?

When I connect my PC to the Ethernet connection on the Gateway, I get no IP and stuff, making it impossible to access the Gateway. How can I access a Gateway, without knowing IP?

Hope you can help me eliminate the Linksys Router, and get the Gateway to work as a router also

A:DSL line - Gateway - Router - PC (internet)

Hey SirBlaBla. Your Thompson gateway is a combo DSL modem and wired mode router. Just connect your pc to one of the 4 LAN ports on the Thompson. You might have to call your ISP if specific settings need to be changed because you are using DSL. If your phone service comes in over this DSL line, make sure you use a splitter to split the signal, with one side going to the Thomson, and the other side going to your phone. If used in this way, make sure you use a DSL filter after the splitter on the line that goes to your phone so it removes the DSL signal from reaching your phone. This Thompson unit does not have wireless capability, so all pc's must be connected by Ethernet cable.

I used "sony sound forge" and "system recorder" and another known programs but I can't reach to my destination.
recorded sounds quality is very low because this files recorded with microphone and I didn't want this.
my laptop soundcard has no "line in" or something related with this .

Now , how I can record stream files such as songs or other with best quality with a trick or program?

A:T1 line very slow at work

You should be asking your ISP these questions.

I'm not absolutely positive, but I will state my two cents. I think all the machines on the network uses what is known as timeshare. If only one machine needs access then all the bandwidth is alloted to this one machine. But if two machines need access, time is shared between the two machines. Timeshare is split between machines making data request. Once a machine is no longer sending data request, there is no need in timeshare being alloted for the machine. In other words there is no specific set speed for each machine on the network. Network traffic is controlled by how many machines are making network request at any given time.

Hallo104 said:

This phenomenon you mention is the Internet evolving and requiring more bandwidth as it progresses. The Internet 10 years ago wasn't bloated with as many high bandwidth websites. Dial-up was probably still common and fully functional back then. I'd hate to even make a connection with Dial-up now, it would probably take 4 minutes, for a single web-page to render.

A:Configuring my network with the new fiber line

It sounds like what you will need to do is use the router in a "passive" mode. What i mean is simply keep your internal network as it is, but create a static route towards the new Cisco Router. The static route should probably be with a subnet mask of What this means is that anything destined to a destination the current router is unaware of, it passes it to the Cisco router which will then forward this onto the internet.

Does this make sense?

So I have an Acer (ugh) monitor which is a few years old. About two years ago I had a problem where there was a white (semi transparent) line that ran across the monitor about 1/3 of the way down the screen. It appears even on the Acer boot screen (i.e. before it gets video) so it should be a hardware problem with the screen.

It isn't black so it's not dead pixels, and it doesn't seem like stuck pixels either. It's almost like it's the connector at the side of the screen or something? I don't know too much about how precisely LCD monitors work though.

Does anyone have any ideas other than "buy another monitor" or "put up with it"? I'd greatly appreciate some suggestions.


A:Horizontal line on monitor

If you don't want to buy another monitor or put up with it then your only other option is to open the monitor up and look around. I would say its probably not a loose cable(you would have a much more noticeable issue if it were that). It could simply be a electronics failure or even a damaged cable. I believe most Acer monitors have a 3 year warranty.

Hey, I've got O2 Home Broadband and it comes through my phone line via a DSL cable which plugs into my router which is downstairs in the kitchen.I also have a phone line in my bedroom where I am now, and I was thinking if I brought the router upstairs in my bedroom and plugged the DSL cable into the phone line and into the router up here would I still have an internet connection? both phone plugs are on the same phone line with the same phone number, I'm hoping to have a wired connection to my PS3 as I've been having some connectivity issues lately.

If I've confused you

-I've got a router downstairs, internet comes through DSL (Phone line to router)
-Bring router upstairs, plug it into phone line up here
-Still get a connection?

A:I get O2 broadband through DSL (phone line)

As long as the phone line in the bedroom is an extension of the phone line downstairs, or the other way around your fine.

Remember you need a DSL filter in each phone line (which should already be fitted). So if your moving the modem/router upstairs, but leaving the phone line plugged in downstairs, you must connect the phone via the DSL filter.


Wall socket > DSL filter > Telephone plug

Wall socket > DSL filter > modem/router (and phone if your connecting one too)

I'm not sure exactly what that is. Do you mean there's a line there when its turned on only, or is it always there, even when shut off?

If its there when it's shut off then it sounds like a pressure crack on the screen to me. Hopefully its not that. I had a nasty on one my Sidekick 2 once. x.x

Im not too sure about that type of modem. Is there a Telnet control option? Most times, people that want to reset a modem via command prompt are stealing internet (NOT PUTTING ANY BLAME), but the best bet you have is to connect to the modem via IP Address. Usually anywhere from the range. Try going to and download the IP Scanner utility. Enter in the IP info and then start the scan. See what you get.

It has these wierd looking dots/lines all over the screen. They appear to be only on my desktop background and on some parts of webpages. They are all different colors, but usually blue or yellow. Sometimes they are in a grid pattern.

I'm running:
AMD Athlon 3000+ Porcessor, 2.17 GHz
1.5 MB RAM

I tried reinstalling the driver, it helped right after installation, but went back to having issues after awhile.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what may be the issue?

A:Visiontek Radeon X1050 Line Problem

Try installing the latest driver from here:

Be sure to uninstall the old graphics driver (through "Add and Remove Programs") before installing the new one. To keep things simple try downloading and installing the driver only instead of the full Catalyst Control Center version.

If that doesn't help, I would say your card is defective. If so, I would return it for exchange under warranty. If you bought it online, be sure to get an RMA number first (return merchandise authorization).

Alright, I have a Toshiba notebook and the other day a vertical, thin, purple line appeared on the the right hand side of my display. I didn't drop my notebook or damage it in any way, no over clocking of any sort ether. It doesn't show on screen shot and when hooked up to an external monitor it works like a charm. I would like to know if the problem is fixable because my warranty is void. I am surprised this has happened because the laptop is only about a year and a half old. Thank you for your assistance.

A:Vertical Purple Line

That Purple Line is a dead or stuck pixel it could have been your Graphics Card but since it worked alright in a External Monitor it indicates the LCD Screen is faulty, this means you need to replace the LCD Screen. I'm not quite sure how to take them off or fix them back on but someone on here maybe able to help a bit better with that.

You could try looking on Ebay for your Toshiba Laptop Model, they sell laptops that may have 1 part not working (they will indicate what is not working) but will be a cheap option for your LCD Screen as well as other spare parts for your laptop compared to buying the Screen on its own here is an example -

hey guys,
ive been having random internet connection issues for the past year or so...they were bad, but now theyre not so bad. I unchecked the "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option in my network device properties, and since then the drop-outs have become less frequent.

i was talking to a mate about this and he said i might be over-loading my phone line. I have one line at my house, and it is feeding 2 phones, 1 foxtel/pay tv, and my ADSL modem. so thats 4 devices on 1 line. At all the outlets there are ADSL/phone line splitters.

Do you think that this could be the cause of my problem? how many devices and you use on 1 line?

any help is much appreciated.


ps: i didnt know which board to post this thread on, so i hope i made the right choice.

A:How many phones/modems can I have on one phone line?

Probably the "1 foxtel/pay tv", but it may be by any message bank service (on your phone)

The absolute best test would be to disconnect all other devices (ie 3) one evening, and then go on the Internet to see if it cuts out (depending upon how intermittant this is)

Regarding how many devices on one line.
According to most telecommunication networks it's one ! Unless they say that you can have more. (note this may be due to money, isn't it always?)
Anyway, a city office block has hundreds (through an internal digital exchange) to one line. So not sure on the max. again it's up to your provider to inform you

Hi guys,

I have an acer LCD monitor, and recently I noticed a horizontal white line appearing approx 1/4 of the way down the screen. It changes colours somewhat when it has a different coloured background.

It is still there when the logo appears from acer BEFORE it starts displaying from my computer. It's 1.5 years old, but I only have a 1 year warranty.

Is there any way I can fix it? Thanks!!

A:White line on monitor

You can have a failing video graphics adapter, or a failing monitor/screen. Best thing to do is trade out monitors first. Then replace the drivers.
Be sure you have a clean system.

I am trying to record audio files from my turntable to my computer. I bought a pre-amp to connect between my turntable and Line In of my Creative Audigy SE sound card. I am using Steinberg's Pinnacle Clean recording software. The waveform is totally flattened on both Negative and Positive peaks and the sound is distorted with the Line In control to the bear minimum. Even at the bear minimum the waveform is flatten on both ends. My pre-amp,PP400,has no attenuation control. Would I need to attenuate the signal prior to it going in to my sound card? Without the pre-amp, my signal looks normal with the Line In control set to maximum, but is low in volume. Manual said I needed a pre-amp. Any advice would be appreciated. 1st attempt in recording to my computer, BTW.

A:Line In for recording

I love my Creative Audigy SE, but I don't record from or to it. I'm afraid you will need to buy a much better sound card, one like M-Audio produces. You'll need to spend a good deal of money. There are stand alone devices that can do this. Do a Google search. I see you are using an old Soyo Dragon motherboard. Nice board in it's day. Good luck

I installed a new pc based on Intel DG33FB Mobo / Realtek ALC888. I connected 2.1 Speakers to the Rear Panel on the Mobo and it was working fine.

Suddenly from the past 5 days, the Speakers do not work. The Speakers are fine as I tested them with the Front Panel Output as well as the Line In and Microphone Jacks in 6 Ch Setup.

Another Problem is that the Front Panel Audio is not disabled even if I select to disable the Front Panel Support from the Realtek Manager.

I have the latest drivers - re-installed twice. I tried System Restore - No Help. I tested the other jacks Line Out / Microphone In with the same speakers - they work properly. The Front Panel Jack is also working properly. But the Rear Line OUt Jack just does not seem to work.

Anybody can help ???

Hi TheCase and welcome to the TechSpot Forum :wave:

Their are products you can buy that plug into the phone socket such as this one, however if you want to use your computer to record them then there is also software based programs that require a modem in the computer see here, you must remember though that in certain states you have to let people know that they are being recorded or you are breaking the law.

Hello there peoples.

Well I have recently just got my self my own personal computer in my room. And i have a wireless setup out by the other computer that well i get a really poor signal from in my room. Its not a wireless network as such. Just a wireless broadband modem sending out my broadband signal so i have internet in my room

Well yeah I have a not very good signal in my room.

So I was thinking.... Is it possible to have to modems connecting to the same broadband line and account? like will they both work? Cos I have 2 modems. My orignal one and the new wireless one. Can I have wired set ups with individual modems on both computers? They would be running on the same phone line and connecting to the same broadband account and stuff. But If I had the line filters and splitters and stuff would it work?

A:Multiple modems on same line?

Your going to make work for yourself, if you have a bad signal in one room, either surf elsewhere, move the wireless sender closer to you, or lastly and this is the easiest buy an external antenna, one that sits on top of the PC instead of the itty bitty thing stuck out of the back of the network card.

Attach an external monitor to your PC. If the problem continues there, it's your graphics card.
If the problem disappears, you have stuck/dead pixels.
You could try a very gentle rubbing of the pixel(s) concerned, but it looks like you might need a new LCD-panel.

My laptops are made in China as well, but they are extremely sturdy (IBM, now Lenovo).

If you are asking whether you can use one Verzon account from two locations, then that depends on Verizon, their policies and how their network is built. Both locations have to be DSL-connected for sure (you have to have ordered a Verizon DSL connection to both of them).

does your board support fp audio ports? if so, then refer to your manual and find out where this jumper blobk is located. to complete the circuits to the back panel ports, there needs to be one or more jumpers installed on said block as your manual indicates. check that first, as it is most likely the cause. but you have gone over your windows and bios settings twice, right?

take it to a laptop repair shop or get a good technician on the job because it'll take tools and training to fix the problem (laptops are very tricky to mess with).

I have a 17 inch Likom CRT monitor. It's about 4-5 years old. When I turn it on sometimes it will come on with no problems then after about 10 minutes the whole screen becomes black and there's a bright wide line in the middle part of the screen. The "Power" light is still on. I've tried it on multiple CPUs and it still happens.

Can someone give an explanation for the problem? The warranty has expired and I'm not sure if the part damaged will be worth the repair - should I just get a new one?

A:Monitor blackout(except for a bright line in the middle part) after ~10mins

Something is broken in the vertical scan system. Depending on the flaw it can be fixed for cheap or you may have to scrap the monitor.

Take it to a repair shop and see what they say.

Hi guyz,

I have a soundmax integrated card on a Toshiba Dynabook Ex bought in Japan. I'm trying to connect my amplifier's monitor out to my PC Line in in order to digitalize music from LPs. However, there is no sound coming in. I checked all the settings in the sound controller, checked the drivers, looked for the control file... still nothing. I'm sure it's a small bogus I misunderstood.

Please help me quick, it's for my work.



Most soundcards allow only one input channel active at one time. Are you sure you have selected the line-in and nothing else? You can see it in the recording volume control. (Are you sure it's line-in and not microphone?)

been trying to play my guitar thru the line-in input on my M-audio revolution and I get really bad latency, like loads. enough to make it impossible to play accurately.

Also when I try to record using a Mic in front of an amp, or from the line out socket on a guitar amp into the line-in socket on the card, i have to turn the input level on the card right right down to avoid clipping, and then it sounds rubbish.

Any help would be appreciated as i desperately need to record some guitar tracks for a project im doing.

Is it possible?

Yes you can, as long as the software you are using to play it has the option to use the Line-in as a source.

I have an Enermax PSU 350w ( EG365AX-VE (W) FCA ) & the 5v line seems to be a bit low. It's constantly at 4.8/4.9.

I don't have any stability problems but I'm just curious why it would run so low & if that could be a problem in the long run. The PSU is about 4 months old.

I have 3 HHDs ( 2 at the moment ), a burner, DVD Drive, Radeon 8500 & a AthlonXP 2000+.

PS. The VCore is really at 1.75 ( says the BIOS ) but all the programs running on Windows see it at 1.85.

A:PSU : 5v line running a bit low

Most of the stuff usually have voltage tolerance of 10%, so if things are running stable, don't worry.

Just booted up and I have this thin line going down my screen, about half the screen length. Did my monitor just go bust? :rolleyes: I do have warranty though.

A:Line on monitor

Don't know if its dying or not, but thats probably not a good sign. Maybe try running different resolutions and refresh rates. Then possibly trying different drivers for your video card and check and see if there is a specific driver for your monitor.

During the month of October, I would like to buy and setup a home phone line network consisting of 2 hpn pci cards, 1 router, 2 computers. I would like to network 2 computers and share files and a network dsl connection.

Would anyone happen to know is it possible to use a standard hardware router to route my internet connection. I know phoneline routers exists, but they are very expensive.

Do you think this would work?

normal nic ~> rj45 lan to standard router ~> rj45 lan converter adapter to rj11 phoneline ~> phoneline jack

jack ~> rj11 phoneline ~> homephoneline card

Would these converters work with the router?

Thank You!

A:Home Phone Line Networking

Heh. You could even network through your home A/C power system. Lol. It's called Phonex Broadband. Hasn't really caught on, however...wonder why...:rolleyes:

Yes you can, it's called HomePNA. Don't know if it's still around, likely it is.

Going wireless is probably a better idea. More bandwidth, definitely more choice in product manufacturers.

The Creative support site seems to have some problems, so I'm going to ask here.

After installing the new drivers for XP, Windows sometimes boots up with line-in volume _very_ loud. The sound is also very distorted, as the sound card is obviously being pushed to its limits. This is occasional, and goes away when toggling digital output on and off (this is how I know it's the sound card's fault).

I can't put back the old drivers, because the original CD that came with the card doesn't have XP drivers and the new drivers do give a good performance boost.

The problem is very annoying, because when the radio tuner kicks in during startup, everybody in two-apartment radius will jump up in the air, look towards my room and think something very rude. I'd like to solve this problem before they go from thinking to saying or doing.

I seem to have goofed things up and I can't figure out where to begin to fix it.

Previously in Word or Adobe I could highlight words or complete line. I could even begin at the start of a statement and highlight it midway through a succeeding line.

Now when I attempt to highlight a box appears and then I highlight the text inside that box. If the material I want to highlight continues on the subsequent line I double-click that line, create a new box and then highlight text within that box.

This is both cumbersome and time-consuming. If you have any idea where I should be looking to reverse this trend I would appreciate your share this information.

Thank you

A:Highlight by box rather than line

Try running the Error Check and see if that clears it up. If it doesn't do a System Restore to date right before problem started. It's also possible you just need to root the computer!

For either of the below functions, close all active Windows and running programs and email.

Error Check: My Computer> right click on Local Drive-usually C-Properties> Tools> Error Check> check both boxes in screen that comes up> Apply> Close and Reboot. Let if run. system will reboot itself when through

System Restore: All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> system Restore> check 'restore my computer to an earlier time> choose date in BOLD on left> Next> Let restore finish. System will reboot itself.
