Wifi Capability being turned off

Q: Wifi Capability being turned off

Forgive me for not knowing the proper terms, but am newer to the Wifi game - have only had it since February.

Our Gateway Laptop has always recognized our Wifi signal until a week ago. Now whenever it goes to sleep or is shut off it does not recognize that we have internet. Instead of the 5 bar icon showing; it has a red x. The only way I can get it to connect is to reboot. I have done a system refresh and also tried to update the driver (Realtek RTL8188CE) but it says I have the most up-to-date version.

This is extremely frustrating! Does anyone have any ideas?

Preferred Solution: Wifi Capability being turned off

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

"Troubleshoot problems" (right click the network icon) can fix the majority of issues without needing a reboot. It will turn off the adapter and re-initialize the drivers.

On portable devices the wireless adapter can be manually turned off for most devices. It is usually a Fn key that is used to turn wireless off.
Wireless can be disabled and enabled, within the list of network connections (Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network Connections).
I know it is frustrating and I don't have a proper solution for you. Especially when you say you have updated your drivers. But the above may help in keeping you from having to completely restart your machine.

One thought does come to mind though. That is checking to see if the wireless is set to turn off when the PC goes in sleep mode. Keeping wireless active could keep it from bugging out.

Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options > Change Plan Settings
Change advanced power settings
Wireless Adapter settings > Power Savings Mode > Setting:
There is a choice between (Performance, Low, Med, and Max)
My desktop never sleeps and wireless is set to performance. So I have no experience with the setting, I just know it is there.

Hello, and Welcome Go here and download the first driver on the page.

In Device Manager Uninstall the current Wireless driver and then run the one I linked to. If I can remember correctly, it will ask if you want only the driver or the driver and complete software. Do the driver + software option. Reboot.

I have a Dell XPS M1530 with a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I lost my wireless capability all of a sudden with the previous install of Home Premium. Yes, the wireless switch is turned on. The machine has Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN Network Adapter and Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller. I have it hard-wired to my router with an Ethernet Cable. It's working fine.
 
Are there any suggestions as to how I can get my wireless capability back?

Nevermind, I fixed it. What I did was disallowed Windows to disable the adapter for powersaving, and I uninstalled the driver. I restarted it and let it install the driver and it worked.

Ok on my Dell D530 Laptop I got home last night to find my laptop I use for work has no interner connection.

1. Checked my other laptop- It has a connection (not the Router or service its self)
2. Restarted Cable Modem and Router, just in case.
3. Re set the NIC adapter of the D530.
4. Windows Diag was no help.
5. Did everything I could think off.
6. Back-ed everything up, and re-imaged it.

With a fresh factory. It's still saying "wireless capability is turned off". There is no physical switch to "turn on or off"

I looked in "services" and re-started things I thought were help but nothing.

Anyone have any ideas that would help. Next move is calling Dell.

Thanks, Ryan

I have and Asus N50Vseries.
My kids have been playing with my computer and I cannot connect to the internet.
If I go into Windows Network Diagnostics it says to turn on wireless capability.
It says via a switch at the side or front or a function key combination.
I cannot find were this is.
I think it is a function key.
F2 has a blue signal looking icon on it, but if I press FN + F2 it
does not seem to do anything.

Please Help Anyone?

Thanks, Becs

A:Wireless capability turned off ?

Welcome!

There is often a switch on the side, bottom, or front of the laptop that turns the card on or off.

Also go into Device Manager, find your card, and make sure it is enabled from the right-click menu.

Hello,

I'm using Lenovo Z570 laptop. (Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter)

Problem:- Can't switch on wifi. The on/off switch is grayed out. While troubleshooting, it says, " wireless capability is turned off".

Solutions Tried:- Re-installed drivers provided by lenovo's website.
Re-installed drivers by windows update.
Reset settings in Bios to default values.
Yes the physical switch is on and the indicator light is glowing.
Fn+ F5 just toggles on/off airplane mode.
Disabled the option so that power management doesn't switches off wifi to save battery.
Other numerous solutions on internet.

The wifi worked flawlessly in windows 7. I even used it as a hotspot (via cmd method).

Someone save me..... Life without wifi seems Dull. :'(

A:Wireless capability is turned off

Try doing a full uninstall of the device and driver in Device manager. Then reboot and see if Windows 8 will find the device on its own. If it does, then you should be able to go into the desktop, open device manager and see the device listed as functioning.

The wireless capability is always automatically turned off when I restart/shutdown my notebook. I'd like it to be turned on without pressing Fn+F12 everytime I turn on my notebook because I'm using external keyboard&mouse.The driver is broadcom wireless downloaded from HP, its date is January 31, 2016 This problem  won't occur on Windows 10, only Windows 7 has this problem.

A:Wireless capability is automatically turned off

Hi @Roween, Thanks for taking an interest in the HP Support Forums! This is a great location to get resolutions and interact with experts from the community. I read your very interesting post where the Wi-Fi turns off when you either restart or shut down the unit in windows 7 and not windows 10. It needs to be manually turned on each time. I?ll be glad to assist you with this. After doing some research I found a  great response on HP forums that is an accepted solution. This has been authored by a certified HP forum Expert DavidPK . Please visit this link: http://hp.care/2cI28MCPlease perform these steps: Open windows Control Panel, open Power Options and next to your currently selected power plan, click Change plan setting.  In the following window, click Change advanced power settings.  In the next window, open up 'Wireless Adapter Settings' and then open up 'Power Saving Mode'.  Next to On battery: click the current setting and a drop-down box will appear - select 'Maximum Performance'.  Do the same for Plugged in.  Then click Apply and Ok to save these settings. Restart the notebook and see if this has helped the issue.Also open device manager. Go to Network adapters and expand it. Select the wireless network adapter for your device by right-clicking on it and clicking on properties. Then go to power management option and uncheck the box that says? Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. Also, check the box that says ?Allow this device to wake the computer? Also please check if the F12 key is the Wi-Fi key on your unit. If you press it once it turns on the Wi-Fi and if you press it again it turns it off. So it toggles on and off. Please check that. To simply say thanks, please click the "Thumbs Up" up button to appreciate my efforts. If this helps, please mark this as ?Accepted Solution?. If you require further assistance let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help. Take care now and do have a pleasant week ahead.

A:Wireless Capability is Turned Off, Wi-Fi On/OFF button Greye...

The issue seems to be with my wifi hardware chip. Eventualy I had to take the laptop to Service Center. The guy tried everything that I did again. Finally the problem is resolved, he plugged out the wifi hardware chip, cleand its both ends a little bit using a eraser, and inserted again and voila, it got detected. He said it could be the issue of carbon lodged on chip's connecting ends. Since then I have faced same issue several times, and All I do is open my laptop, plug out WiFi chip from motherboard, clean it a little and plug it again.And It starts working like a charm.May be it is loose or I don't know what is the exact problem.But it still has a problem with Antenna, I recieve very low signal from my wifi, even I am within decent range of wifi router.

Hello guys. It's been a few weeks since I've used my windows vista and all of a sudden the wireless on the computer is turned off. It said that there was a switch in front of my computer and there was but I keep pressing it and it doesn't work at all. I also tried to do FN + F2 and it doesn't work. Neither of the other F and numbers don't work either (they don't have a wireless sign in them). Also, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the adapter too and it doesn't work either. My brand of Windows Vista is a VAIO computer. Please help, I've been trying to get it work for weeks.
 

A:Windows Vista, Wireless Capability Turned Off

Go to Control Panel - Device Manager.

Click the + in the Network Adapters heading.

Is the wireless device listed there and showing as working properly?

What's the model name/number and product name/number of that Sony VAIO laptop?

Which country do you live in?

Hello all I don t even know from where to start If someone s able to help me I ll be grateful The problem capability an Wireless L40-10U is a with Toshiba off AR5007EG turned ATheros on is like this I own a Toshiba Equium L - U -Processor Wireless capability is turned off on a Toshiba L40-10U with an ATheros AR5007EG Intel r Celeron r M CPU GHZ -Memory GB of RAM -Qualcomm Atheros AR EG Wireless It came with a bit Windows Vista Home Premium and I recently updated it to a bit Windows Ultimate When I was running on Vista the wireless kept turning on and off without me disabling it I thought it was a driver issue so I updated the drivers again it was working fine but the problem appeared again I then upgraded my operating system to Ultimate Windows Update updated my wireless driver and it worked for a couple of hours and while I was on the internet reading something I saw this pop-up on my screen quot Wireless Lan OFF quot Since then I cannot seem to quot activate quot my wireless Should I mention that there is no actual switch to turn the wireless on or off is just a hotkey combination Fn and number And now when I press that it just gives me a popup quot Wireless Lan OFF quot It doesn t matter how many times I press it it still says that is off I ll attach a print screen to see exactly the pop-up message see first attachment In the device manager the wireless adapter is there and functioning properly see second attachment Things that I already tried -Uninstall wireless adapter download amp install latest wireless driver -uninstall wireless adapter manually install the driver -disable quot Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power quot -Verify that all your Network Services are Started from Control Panel -Disable IPV -I also tried this thing that I saw on another forum quot Most laptops have a hardware switch which disables the wireless card More than once I ve come across a laptop which has had that switch either broken or broken off The obvious solution would be to fix the switch but that involves opening every freaking screw on the laptop to get access to the motherboard just to solder two small points There is a huge potential of breaking something important in the process but that is what I ve done in the past Last week the old laptop that I use as file server fell ill to the same issue As I m using my neighbors wireless signal I couldn t really ask him if I could hook up an ethernet cable to his router instead although I thought about it But honestly it wasn t worth the effort to open it up So I started looking up how the wireless card is actually turned off and on using the switch Here is what I found This applies to MiniPCI wireless cards only Pin controls the quot silent RF quot mode That is what most hardware switch activate in order to turn off your wireless You ll notice that while you lose your internet connection when the switch is turned off your hardware is still visible in device manager The solution is to take your wireless card out and apply a small amount of tape over just pin and put it back in That s it Your wireless card will always see the hardware switch as being turned on You can still disable the wireless using Fn f or whatever the hotkey is for your laptop The pin numbering alternates from side to side so that all odd pins are on one side and even pins are on the other So if this is your MiniPCI card tape this pin Update For mini pci express it is pin which is responsible for the same function also active low It is located on the underside of the board second pin from the notch toward the side with more pins Click to expand Unfortunately that didn t work I ran out of ideas Please help nbsp

Hi Bob and welcome to Eightforums.

Since you have a laptop you are, when it comes to replacing hardware, very restricted to options the laptop manufacteror is allowing. Laptop hardware is often rebranded. That means that 'ordinary' hardware will mostlikely not work.

I'd advise you to ask Asus this question. They made the product, so they know what you can and cannot do with the laptop.

Goodluck.

Greetz,

Rover

Hi - how do I find out if my PC can connect to wifi rather than with a cable?  And if it cannot now, can I download an update to enable wifi?  MY PC model is p6-2050ix Thanks

A:does my PC have WiFi capability?

That is a desktop and likely does not have the hardware for wireless. Most people use the wired ethernet port on desktops. You can't just download software to make it work you need the hardware. 2 options: 1. a pci wireless network adapter and antenna which would require opening the case and inserting a card into an open expansion slot; or, 2. a usb wireless dongle. The first option would likely perform a bit better but they make good, cheap wireless usb dongles and all you have to do is pop it in a usb port, maybe (not certainly needed) install a driver and you have wifi. Post back and let us know what you want to do.

A few days ago, my laptop was working perfectly fine. But then, I turned my computer off, the next day, everything started up as normal, with Windows 7 Home Premium still in the backgrounds when I am logging in but then, the network connecter won't automatically start. So I was left without internet for a bit. Whats more, I noticed that the taskbar, which was always semi-transparent before, is now white. As well as all the title bars of the programs that I open, turned into blue!

Is computer has always ran Windows 7 as far as I am aware, but e way the taskbar, and the title bars, are behaving, reminds me of windows xp.

I first tried to look up how to solve my wifi problem. I manually opened the network connecter in the control panel, and tried to "Connect to a network". But it didn't detect any wifi servers! Which is odd since I had always used the one my family used, and I am using wifi on that server at this moment!

When I tried to use troubleshoot on my "internet connections", it first showed me that the issue was "The Diagnostic Policy Service is not running" but then every other time I tried to troubleshoot again, it doesn't show any problems detected

And with the problem of the taskbar, I tried to search solutions, and found some. I right-clicked while on the desktop and clicked on "personalize". And my sources tol me to select an aero theme. However, all ofthe aero themes are greyed-out, and I am unable to select any of them. The only theme that I am able to select is my "unsaved theme", which has a square with a blue pirtion on the top that has a white bar in it, and the bottom, which is the white portion, and has a black bar across it. All the themes with the roundish edges and clear squares are unselectable...

I have no idea whats wrong with my computer now, would somebody please help me? Alnost all other programs are functioning fine, but the wifi is not connecting(Oh, and I am unable to adjust my screen brightness)

All help are thanked!

BTW, I wrote this on my iPad mini


No idea what the problem might be but it doesn't sound good.

Have you considered using System Restore to take your system back to when it was working correctly?

This would be by far the easiest way to fix this type of problem, the link shows you how.

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

A:WiFi turned off issue

Hi, given what you said about checking this with a boot disk, it sounds more like a hardware problem, assuming you know it worked with the boot disk previously.

(The erratic behaviour you're observing is odd as you know. However I also find MS providing the Wifi tile on the Action Centre (as well as my physical button) confusing).

Presumably you are not also using an ethernet connection.

You can get more information and lots of technical detail if you open
Control Panel, Network and Internet, Network Connections
& rt click on the WiFi connection and click 'Diagnose'.

You can also check these (shown with Wifi connected)

Went to Toshiba site and downloaded and ran the TVAP. It got rid of the Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter and we still can't get the wifi to enable. Unfortunately she does not remember which update it was that she performed. Help.

Update: My wife remembered that the only change she made was to install Secunia PSI from this sites download section.

I had this problem: i can't turn off the wifi unless i turn on the airplane mode, and make all the connection turned off, including bluetooth, which i needed to connect to a bluetooth speaker of mine. And also, if i turned on the airplane mode, i can't turn it off by turning on wifi.
i tried to turn off the wifi by various way. i tried to disabling it from the menu popped out when you click the wifi logo from your notification bar, i tried to disabling it from the settings, and tried to disabling it from the actiion center, and none of them is working.
things i have done:
try disabling wifi from ubuntu, and it works,
updating the driver of the network devices

Even with the Function key combo you cannot? Sometimes you have to press Fn and the Function key, if you did not change it to standard Function key operation.

Hi there

Recreate the wireless connection on your PC.
Windows 7 - Goto Control Pannel -> Network and Sharing Center.
Click on "Manage Wireless Networks" (Left Pane).
Remove the current wireless connection.

****Try the following only if you know how to setup a router from scratch or you have access to your ISP's tech support so that they can guide you....

Reset the router and start from scratch.

Hi, I have an aspire s7-391.

I tried reinstalling windows already but no effect.  Specs:Windows 10 proNetwork adapater: Qualcomm Atheros AR5BMD222 Driver: 10.0.0.276 I hope anyone can help me..

Since 2 weeks ago, wifi suddenly stopped working. The network adapter seems to work fine, but when I turn on the wifi button in the windows settings screen, it immediately turns off again. I had the same issue with the touchpad, but that was solved by the FN+t button, however, for the wifi this doesn't work. The only things that changed was that a few days before it stopped, I got some windows update, but wifi continued to work a bit longer until it stopped, so I guess they are not related. I tried reinstalling windows already but no effect.  Specs:Windows 10 proNetwork adapater: Qualcomm Atheros AR5BMD222 Driver: 10.0.0.276 I hope anyone can help me..

A:Wifi stays turned off, while adapter works

See if you can use the shortcut FN + Q to turn on the WiFi. If that doesn't work, you may try refreshing Windows using the instructions at http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/37335

Good day Due to my coming posting to a place without a wifi connection for my tablet I decided to turn my laptop I No connection laptop turned after hotspot wifi internet into my into a wifi hotspot I googled and found this post How to turn your Windows laptop into a wireless hotspot News TechRadar I thought quot Hey that's cool quot So I did everything mentioned No internet connection after I turned my laptop into wifi hotspot there to the letter It worked my laptop was able to create its own hotspot which was well cool I connected my tablet to the new wifi connection It did work but I had no internet connection So I assume that whatever I did it disconnected my wireless adapter to created the hotspot So I thought that's fine I'll just use a network cable Now here's the real problem I disconnected No internet connection after I turned my laptop into wifi hotspot the connection but my wireless network on my laptop told me that I had no internet connection I checked my tablet and reconnected the tablet to my home wireless network It worked fine I'm posting this using my tablet on home wireless No issue with my laptop nor the hardware because prior to following the tutorial my wireless network works just fine I tried disabling the device in Network amp Sharing No difference I stopped hostednetwork No difference I disallowed hostednetwork No difference As a last ditched effort I turned on the system restore and reverted back to an earlier point That finally work My laptop finally has an internet connection again So my question is what actually happened here and if I encounter this again what should I do apart from turning back to a restore point Perhaps someone more experienced than me can shed me some light Thanks in advance

A:No internet connection after I turned my laptop into wifi hotspot

To my knowledge the WiFi adapter work as either a connection point to a WiFi router/Wireless access point or AS a wireless Access Point, WiFi Hot Spot, but not both. So you would need to connect the notebook to a router (internet connection) with a Ethernet cable. Then the computer will take the internet from the Cable and send it out to connected devices.

Hi there
We just got my dad an ADVENT 7109 laptop. Its a great little machine for the money, but what we find very very annoying is that it boots up without having WIFI turned on.
It doesnt have a switch on it so you could permanently leave it on, if has a actual button(that can only be pressed once the pc has been turned on).
Does anyone know how I can make this laptop have wifi automatically turn itself on when I boot it up?
It is quite annoying.
thanks

A:internet connection not shared by my laptop turned wifi hotspot

If the sharing tab is missing then it means that the driver isn't up to date. About the only way to fix that is to look for a more recent version of the wireless driver. Just updating or reinstalling the driver might be enough although some adaptors simply can't support this feature as per Paul Thurrott's page on this.

I recently got an update from Microsoft on Win 7, and immediately after it had finished updating I had no sound in any application (AIM, Skype, Chrome, Firefox, Youtube, etc.). This has happened before, and I ran Microsoft's Sound problems wizard and it always said that an option had been clicked off and that it had restored it. This time when I ran the wizard it says it detects no problems. I am sure it is the software, as it happens a lot with MS updates. Will downloading a new driver help? I can't go back to a previous configuration, I don't have one to go to. What should I Do? A computer without sound is like a bicycle without wheels.

I was playing War of the roses earlier, and my pc decided to turn off for no reason. I thought, ok, I'll just turn it back on after dinner and continue playing. But when I pressed the on button, nothing happened. I tried a few more times and opened up my case. I unplugged the power cable then plugged it back in, and the CPU fan turned on for about a second, then went dead, and this happens everytime I unplug and replug. I'm pretty certain it's a PSU fault, but I just need someone to clarify this for me before I buy a new one. If it isn't a PSU problem then please tell me what else it could be and what I should do about it? By the way, I only built it a week ago, so my warranty is still valid, if that changes anything. Thanks in advance <3

A:Max CPU and RAM capability not being used - WHY?

Hello,

My name is Mike, I&#8217;m a Technical Analyst located at Dell corporate headquarters in Round Rock, TX. I&#8217;m part of an internet outreach team developed to interact with the online community regarding technical questions and issues that customers face with Dell products. I read your question and wanted to chime in. The operating system should allocate the maximum resources available based on system specs, software demand and hardware availability. This means that if the software is calling for a specific amount of RAM, HDD space, and processing power, the OS will evaluate the systems current load and decide how much of the requested allocations can be granted. If the maximum request is possible, meaning the allocations needed are available for use (not being used by another program) then they will be released to the program for use. A better way to look at it is the program will only use as much of a resource as it needs to run stably. If more resources are still available while the program is running at full throttle then you&#8217;re actually doing well.

Now, you can set an application priority over another (excluding needed system functions) in the device manager. If you click on the Process tab and locate the application, right click and select Priority, this will let you tell the OS what priority you would like to run the application at. Think of priority as amount of available resources. It&#8217;s best to not set a priority too high, it&#8217;s usually better to set other applications to a lower priority to release more resources for other application to use. I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Mike

i have heard that windows xp has a built-in unzipping capability for compressed files. i have WINZIP-can i get rid of it and use instead the xp version,and if so,how can i access the xp program?
 

A:win xp unzip capability

Yes you can get rid of winzip. I have XP and have never used winzip on it. All you need to do is uninstall winzip and xp will make your default compression program XP. It is a built in program so there is no way of opening the specific program. The way it works is if you have a zip file you just double click it to open it like you would any other file. Then once open it shows you the zip files contents and you can use them right there. If you would like them extracted you can use the extract button that will appear on the left side of the screen once you open the zip file. To compress, you need to select the files you would like compressed and then right click and go down to Send To and select "Compressed (zipped) Folder." Best of luck. Any questions, let me know.

I also tried going into Device Manager and checked the box next to "Enable CD burning," but this didn't work. After this I tried unistalling the device and restarting computer to have it reinstalled.

I am wanting to know what I need to do so that I can move my computer to another room. I have to leave my modem where it is. Is there anything I can add to the computer, or possibily already have there so I can continue to have internet access? Thank you for your time!

The provider of the wireless modem should have given you written instructions on how to set this up.

Did you not get documentation/help as part of this setup?

I have a IBM X31 thinkpad laptop which I have had the hard drive replaced. I have no OEM discs but have loaded Windows XP professional 2002 with SP3. After a great deal of time I have found drivers for all hardware from either the IBM (Lenovo) website or from driver detective with the exception of the network controller whiich I assume controls the wireless capabilities of the computer. I have tried to turn on/off the wireless capability using the f5 key to no avail. I'm unsure of what to do next.

Whats the type-model number of your laptop? Should be on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

Also try installing the IBM System Update utility: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/TVSU-UPDATE.html

Then run it and download any drivers and software it shows available for your laptop.

I am trying to set up a VPN for my Church so that all important files can be kept on a server and updated there. I tried using Windows XP and have been all over the Web. I believe that XP capability is all that we really need but after setup it won't connect. I have been through the step by step procedure that Microsoft told me to go through. Our church really doesn't have the cash to pay for VPN software. can someone help me to accomplish this task?

Ok its been happening for a while first on my gefore 8500gt 1gb, there was white pixels showing up all around certain images on games like need for speed, neverwinter nights etc, I then bought a geforce gtx 260 and thought it would solve the problem however I still cant run games like C&C, NFS on full gfx without it seriously slowing down, and the card has real trouble handling old style games like legend of mir, I have to turn all gfx options of for that game.

I am runnning a 600w stealth modular psu, dual core processor and 2gb ram.

I tried to burn a video yesterday & was unsuccessful. When I checked my drives on My Computer I noticed that the DVD icon has dissappeared from the DVD-RW drive. It still works with cds all aspects. I would like to correct this if possible. I wonder if it had anything to do with putting Nero 7 on my computer? Miles

I was recently hit with an auto update of Win 10.  After three day I was finally able to get into my Inspiron N5050 and revert back to Win 7.  I've had little glitches but thought things were getting better.  I have no print ability at all. Not local with USB or via wifi.  I've deleted printers and reinstalled. Reinstalled drivers using compatibility mode. Updated the firmware on my wifi router. Nothing.  The printer is connected fine to wifi.  I can also "see" the printer when I map the network on the laptop.  When I send a test page or print from a document, it shows that it was sent but never connects and prints. With the issues Win 10 has caused with printers, is it possible my computer still thinks is running 10?  What am i overlooking and what else can I do to fix this?

I have a Dell Optiplex GX620 which apparently has an Intel GMA 950 3.0 integrated graphics system. I run Windows XP and wish to know if this computer can run a Sinotec flat screen full HD LED 21.5 inch monitor at 1920 x 1080 resolution. I am no expert on computers so need some help, it will only be used to view DVD's for leisure purposes.

I was watching the PDC demo again and remembered the system being more touch friendly. Now, I understand they demo'd this on a HP TouchSmart, but from her description, I took it as that it could be done with any touchscreen via mouse bindings. Is that how anyone else took it, because I have a little HP L5006tm and it's not exactly acting all fancy

A:Touch capability

most likely the the touchsmart also support multitouch using alpha (read pre-beta drivers)
with win 7
ive read on and it does not allow for multitouch bindings
touchscreen is usable for your monitor and it should work great just not the flashy stuff
it all depends on the hardware
as for the mouse bindings idea
i dont know the nessary api's i wouldnt know where to even lead you ....lol
good idea

Well, In the middle of using a wireless connection, it stops working. When I go to diagnose the problem, It tells me that my wireless capability is turned off. However, the light on the front of my computer tells me that it's on and pressing FN F8 only reconfirms that.

I'm using a Satellite A-305 Toshiba Lap-top and running Windows Vista

Any help?

There is no 'Bluetooth' Button in settings under Devices. When I go into 'devices' all I have to choose from is 'Connected devices' to try and search for a device. My speaker will not be found by the computer.. Does my laptop have bluetooth capability? Just bought this laptop today and any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:Bluetooth Capability

Hi: What model wireless network adapter does your notebook have? If you don't know, go to the device manager, click to expand the network adapters device category, and there you will find the name and model number of the wireless network adapter. In today's notebooks the wireless and bluetooth radios are integrated onto the same circuit board. Some model wireless cards do not have the combination wireless/bluetooth radios. I would say that 50% of the HP consumer notebooks sold today do not come with built in bluetooth networking.

Not really a question that can be answered since the content/display of each web page is different. You would find this out by trial and error. 
 
That is not a machine with a lot of power so I wouldn't open tons of tabs.

is there a patch to install the 32 bit sys on my 64 bit O S? I need to get flash! I bought from Dell and they are NO help.
I have tried for 12 months and finally gave up till I saw your site! Or should I buy win 7 to correct this. I dropped $35.00 for the Vista Missing Manual and it makes a great paperweight! thanks, Jim

A:vista 64 bit without 32 bit capability

No such patch--nor is the a need, anyway. 32bit apps will run on a 64 bit Vista machine. They're designed that way.
