Tried to speed up laptop, now wifi doesn't work

Q: Tried to speed up laptop, now wifi doesn't work

I went and disabled some services from running, nothing important, just the ones listed here (very bottom): http://www.computing-tips.com/2008/06/02/how-to-make-windows-xp-run-faster/
I also followed their advice on the BIOS (last paragraph just above Disable GUI Options )

Now my laptop won't show the wireless icon, and won't connect to wifi. Can someone tell me which service may have done this?

Thanks,
Aza

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.)

Hi:Hopefully you did not run regcleaner.right ?
Let's start by doing two things:
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:
• COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
• Computer Browser
• DHCP Client
• DNS Client
• Network Connections
• Network Location Awareness
• Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
• Server
• TCP/IP Netbios helper
• Wireless Zero Configuration (XP wireless configurations)
• WLAN AutoConfig (Vista wireless configurations)
• Workstation

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic (or perhaps manual).

If a service is not running, open it's properties and check the dependencies. Check each of the dependencies and see which one is preventing the service from running. Checking the event log is also a good idea here, there may be clues to what is failing.

My laptop doesn't work with wifi when I first open it. It will show at the bottom of the screen that it is fully connected and has full bars, but when I open the internet the pages will not open. I must restart the computer and then it will work. How can I fix this?

When the WiFi is active, the laptop NIC should be disabled - - easy - - just unplug the the cable to the router.

Most tech enthusiasts would never run the corrupt factory preinstall with all of the bloatware that throttles Win7 native performance, but instead get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Follow the steps about putting your wireless driver in your backup so if it isn't provided by installer you can install it to connect to your netowrk and get online quickly.

Then if you stick with the tools and methods given in the tutorial only, you'll get and keep a perfect install for as long as you do.

So I accidently bent my Belkin surf and share WiFi adapter on my desktop, and the internet cut out. I assumed it was broken, so I plugged it into my laptop and turned the wifi switch to off to test it out. Strangely, it worked fine. Then I attempted other USB ports on my tower, none of them worked. The strange thing is I can see all of the available wifi networks, but can't connect to them. I tried uninstalling the drivers, restarting, and reinstalling but that doesn't seem to work. The chip is fine, as it worked on my laptop, but it refuses to work on the tower.
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

After a very long time i've bought a car racing game and it doesn't work!

First of all i reinstalled my windows and after that directly installed the nfs underground.
Remember at this time i wasn't having any new drivers for my SIS 300 video card.
At this time the video (which is in the bigenning) was played but after that the menu was all dull grayish.
All i was able to see was just an orange color car. Any text in the menu wasn't even shown, rather instead of words there were boxes (sq, and rectangles).
After that to solve the problem i downloaded latest driver for my video card and after that window's xp was not able to on it even.
It gave me following error message:
Speed.exe encountered a problem and needs to be close. (huh) We are sorry for inconvenience.

So experts any suggestions pls

A:My wifi doesn't work

It is a Linux issue, you need to go to a forum that deals with the Distro you are using. Broadcom chips have a big issue with the Linux Kernel no cooperating with them, so you have to use "Man in the Middle" software to get them to work. You are better off using either a Realtek or Intel chip Networking adapter.

I got a new Asus RT-N10E router. Using it over Windows 7.

Router was working fine until someone switched it off once. Now though I can see other wifi signals, my router doesn't show up. I have tried removing the connection and searching for it again. It doesn't work. I tried completely switching off the router and restarting my computer. That too doesn't work.

Strangest of all, I can see the connection over my smartphone, my kindle Fire but not on my laptop.

Please help me out guys.

What the title says. I bought a TP-Link WDR4300 and installed it, and everything works perfectly on every device except for my laptop (Windows 8.1 Lenovo G480, running Windows Defender as AV). When connecting wirelessly, I get access to the router, but it shows "limited", and it doesn't even let me get into the setup page (192.168.0.1) and when I ping it, every packet is lost. Ethernet, meanwhile, works perfectly. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to fix it.

I'd like to attach the ipconfig outputs but my command prompt is in spanish and some of the characters are missing in the .txt file, too. I don't know how to get the file in english.

@jobeard I saw one thread you solved in which you said to mention you so you could help. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks beforehand for any and all suggestions.
 

A:WiFi doesn't work, Ethernet does

Hi, You will always have to use the ethernet (Cat 5) cable to get into your router's software, at 192.168.0.1, all routers are set up like that for security reasons.
It's done that way so that no one can change your settings, passwords etc using a wireless connection, you must use the Cat 5 cable to make setup & security changes.
Did you get any setup software with the TP Link router?
If you get good internet access using Windows 8.1 using the ethernet cable, it
might point to possible wireless driver issues.
It might be worth downloading the latest driver for your WDR4300 from the TP-link website;

A:WiFi doesn't work only with cable ethernet

Powercycle the modem and router. Here is a specific order if you have a separate modem and router.
1. Shut down all PC's.
2. Shut down the Modem and router.
3. Power on the modem only. Wait 2 minutes or so.
4. Power on the router. Wait 2 minutes or so.
If you have a modem/router combo, then you don't need step 4.
5. Boot up the PC and see if you can connect.

I've tested it with another one, but even this one doesn't work. Does anyone have an idea what it could be? Or is there a list with the supported WIFI Adapter on it? It would be great if anyone could help us. We should provide a solution to the customer. By the way: the adapter ist shown in the USB-Manager. But it doesn't recognize it as a WIFI Adapter. It's just there that i could redirect it to the session, not to connect to a Wireless-Network. Many thanks!Alex

A:Internet only working when connected using Ethernet cable. Wifi doesn't work

You have an IP on your LAN, but none on your wifi. Check your router to make sure DHCP for wifi is turned on and you have enough available addresses.

Dear All
I'm using Dell Vostro 3350 now. After I upgrade Win 10 Pro, the Laptop Speaker doesn't work and can't give output any sound. But if I put my earphone, all of the sound include song work.
I use PC Doctor and scan the computer hardware but there is nothing found error on hardware and software. I also use windows update to scan all of the drivers, but it can't found any update drivers of this laptop. So what can I do next to fix the problem?
Thank you for member's attention

A:Laptop Speaker Doesn't Work But Using Earphone Work

Hello. Dell does not recommend installing Win10 on the Vostro 3350 model. Dell says, "If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected." To get the best performance from your laptop, revert it back to the previous operating system. You can google to find instructions for undoing Win10.
If you want to continue with Win10, then try to install the IDT Win8 audio driver using compatibility mode.
1. Click the link to go to the driver's page. Download and save the driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive. 2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win8.

Good morning I recently purchased a mg memory card for my IBM laptop The original OS had mg with which I upgraded to XP SP a while back Anyway that being said I put speed up Memory doesn't Solved: laptop New the new memory in and checked in BIOS on boot and it only said mg which I assume the rest was allocated somewhere else on the disk Also when Solved: New Memory doesn't speed up laptop I tried installing a couple of programs on the laptop after the new memory was put in I got a blue screen with some error messages I assume Couldn t read it fast enough When I tried to read it the laptop rebooted itself and then started up I cannot install any apps or programs without getting that blue error screen It always goes to that screen and reboots itself I don t understand why it didn t speed up the laptop I don t know the processor speed which I think may be a factor in why it s not running better I think it s a Pentium III if that helps to accomodate running XP It does work but very slowly at half the capacity it should for running XP obviously This laptop is a fairly old IBM Thinkpad R I was wondering if there was anything I could do or maybe should have done to remedy the situation I put the old memory back in and although it s slow it seems to run better I was also thinking that maybe I should just reinstall although not sure how that would work when I changed the partition from FAT to NTFS I have read some post about reinstalling on top of XP and some suggest it s not a good idea cos alot of things do not support as far as performance Thanks nbsp

A:Laptop overheats and fan doesn't reach full speed

What games are you trying to play on that computer? Hopefully they are not that demanding because the Vostro isn't great for newer games. Also make sure that you are not using it on a soft surface (bed, rug, blanket, etc).

The drivers for your video card should not interfere with your fans since it is all integrated into the same motherboard.

I turned my computer on normally earlier and went on to google chrome then the screen turned blue with loads of writing on the and it turned itself off. When I turned it back on it seemed normal until I entered my password and it came up with a sign saying "Preparing Your Desktop". It then comes up with what I think is the oldest version of windows and comes up with a notice saying that it cannot locate the System Profile and that it cannot access a windows service. Nothing works on it, I cannot access the Internet or my documents.
I tried to attach a video but it doesn't seem to work on my phone.

Hi everyone

I have HP dv7 2015tx running windows 7 (64bit) and I have serious problem with wifi connectivity. in last few months the wifi connection started to malfunction and randomly detect and connect to hotspots. and then it stopped working completely after a while. I tried:

-reinstalling, upgrading .... the wireless driver
-using wifi dongle
-replacing the wifi card with a new one
-.....
and I found these can not help me in this issue. the same thing happened to my blutooth connectivity last year and after I reinstalled the windows it was all fixed. but this time im not planning to reinstall the windows again.
So in my point of view this problem might be fixed if I fix the way windows is detecting any wifi access !! is there any file missing in windows related to this ?!!


Please help me in this matter

Sometimes you have to install the HP wireless manager crapware in order to turn it off in its Preferences so you can use Win7's superior wireless manager from the bottom-right System tray.

But first try rightclicking the System Tray Network connection icon to Troubleshoot, choosing wireless adapter. If that doesn't work correctly, go into Control Panel>Network/Sharing Center>Change adapter settings to rightclick on Wireless adapter to Troubleshoot. If it doesn't appear install its driver from the HP Support Downlloads webpage. Driver Install - Device Manager

I have an HP 2000-2b10CA and I bought it FIVE DAYS AGO!! I was checking if everything worked so I shot a video and when I played it back I heard nothing! Then I found out it was my mic! I searched online and a lot of people told me to go to the settings and set it as my default device but IT DOESN'T WORK!! So I decided to re-install the driver but it didn't work! PLEASE HELP ME!!! I LOVE THIS LAPTOP AND I DON'T WANT TO GIVE IT UP!!:cry::cry::cry::cry:

A:My NEW Laptop's Microphone Doesn't Work!!

If you have Stereo Mix (System Mixer), that should be set as default Recording Device, if you have it. Then if either the mic or Line In is used it will be detected and heard or recorded.

If reinstalling the driver, from HP, did not work, best to contact HP as only HP can correct it under warranty.

That's the call I got last week.
He got a new Dell, then asked me to look at his HP printer.
It was chock full of dead insects and dead insect parts, as well as residue from the insect bomb he'd set off a few days before.
I took the old laptop home to remove the HD and get his files.

I'm not a tech person so bear with me.
The LAN connection worked fine fine up till a few weeks ago but now I can use the internet through wireless connection only.I tried turn off the wireless connection & connect the modem to my laptop using the LAN cable...didn't work. I used another cable (i thought the one I used before was faulty). It still doesn't work & I can't see the LAN symbol either. Is the LAN port broken or something? what should I do?
 

A:LAN doesn't work on my Dell laptop

In your BIOS screens, look for 'On-board devices'. Click it open to expand the options, look for 'Integrated NIC', select that. Select the option 'enable'.
Press F11 (save and exit). That should make the LAN icon appear in your taskbar, and let you connect your pc to the router via a CAT5E cable, and the 'net.

If you Google the IP, 64.34.212.70, you'll see tonnes of results where people have had viruses.

There is a file called "HOSTS" on your computer, and a virus has posted that IP there.

You need to Notepad, right-click and choose "Run as Administrator". Go to File > open and enter "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts".

It should look like the below. If there are any UNHASHED entries then remove the whole line. Then close notepad, and be sure to save. Restart your PC and Google should work.

I would run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware when you have finished and ensure you have an updated anti-virus program to ensure that there are no nasties on your computer!

Hello,
I am talking about:
- ESQUIRE ECS G320 Laptop ( www.esquire.co.za )
- 224 MB RAM, VIA Nehemiah Processor 1.00 GHz, 40GB Hard Drive
- Microsoft Windows XP Professional installed on it

The problem is, the PC has been around for about 5 years now and the 'O' key doesn't work along with these keys []. But, apparently these keys {} work. (i.e. The two keys doesn't work when pressed independently but work when they are pressed while the Shift key is held down). This is what led me to believe that it may be fixed. I have already tried completely changing the operating system and cleaning the bottom of the key.

Any thoughts?

For some reason my brand new Acer laptop doesn't have a functioning fn key. Everything else is perfect though, as it should be coming right from the box. I can't quickly mute, change screen brightness or put my computer to sleep. This is very annoying. Do I need to install a driver even though the rest of my keyboard is functioning properly? Help!

A:Acer laptop fn key doesn't work

Sometimes the Fn keys work in weird ways that I don't expect... have you looked in the manual? Chances are there's some Acer-specific utility that lets you configure how they work (you may be able to change something in the BIOS that has the same effect, but I'd look for the utility first).

Hey guys,

I've got a Dell work laptop. It has McAfee Safeboot and other work related security things. I don't have many "privileges" on the machine. It connects to my work wifi network just fine (automatically) but I can't get it to connect to any wifi networks outside of work. If go to network settings and look at the wireless adapter and view available wifi networks, nothing comes up. It looks like the laptop has an alternative program that controls network adapter (Dell network adapter program) but it won't open when I double click it.

Any thoughts on where to start? What more info would you like?

About a week ago, our cable internet connection went out. Before I had a chance to reboot the modem & router, my 11 year old decided to completely reset the router to factory settings! Ugh! This caused several issues: my home network is now gone, only a unsecured factory network is available. When I try to plug my laptop into the router via ethernet cord (in order to login to router and setup secure network) my computer will not recognize the router and won't connect to internet. I tried troubleshooting with my cable provider and they say it's in my computer (IP address will not reset) and he recommended I replace my network card. However, today when I brought my laptop to work, it will instantly recognize the wifi at work. So is it really my network card that is causing issues? Please help, I'm desperate and not tech too tech savvy!

So a little background history, about a year ago I plugged in my headphones and no sound was coming through so I went to the playback devices and disabled the laptop speakers in attempt that it would default the headphones and play out of them, which it did.

About a year later I finally stopped using the headphones and enabled the speakers again but for some reason sound won't play out of the laptop anymore. I don't know what caused this problem but I for some reason if I play games on my laptop no sound comes out anymore. Using Skype and watching videos anywhere else works but as soon as I launch a game there's never any audio.

I have barely any knowledge on computers and would like someone to guide me through and help me fix this! Thank you in advance.

A:Laptop monitor doesn't work after overheating

So you have tried plugging it into an external monitor and you still don't get any picture? That would indicate a fault with the graphics card itself.

Try shining a torch at the screen when it is booting up etc. and see if you can see a feint image, if you can, it might just be the backlight / inverter that has failed.

Merry Christmas Team.

My little brother came home from work one night and now is screen doesn't work at all. no flickering, backlight etc. I connected it top the TV via HDMI and even that didn't show up anything.

How high are the chances that his graphics card has died?

A:Laptop Screen doesn't work, No Backlight

There aren't really graphics cards in laptops, they are built in to the motherboard. So, if it isn't displaying anything even when on the bios or start screen, it may be the motherboard that is bad.

Hello, Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for your post. I am afraid this PC officially supports Windows OS only and Linux-based like Ubuntu are not officially supported.Therefore, you may experience certain issues while with Ubuntu due to the lack of proper drivers loaded there (in the Kernel). Ubuntu 16.04 uses Kernel 4. You may try older Ubuntu versions such as with kernel 3.13/3.16/3.19 - Ubuntu 14 LTSYou can also try to post at the Ubuntu forums where Linux/Ubuntu gurus may be able to provide you with specific advice about the problem >> https://askubuntu.com/>> https://ubuntuforums.org/  An alternative option would be to install Windows as a main (host) operating system but run Linux Ubuntu as a virtual one from inside Windows using free software like Oracle VirtualBox >> https://www.virtualbox.org/>> https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Screenshots

Hi all,

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop and while recently doing some computer maintenance to get rid of some malware, I most likely screwed up my computer. At the Windows 7 user login screen, my mouse and keyboard are non-responsive. I don't think this is a problem with the actual hardware because I can access the boot menu with F12 when I boot it up. Appreciate any help.

On my Toshiba Satellite L635 laptop, the touchpad is not working anymore.
The usual function key (Fn+F9) to activate/deactivate the touchpad doesn't change anything as well as the small button in front of the touchpad.
I checked the driver in the device manager and the touchpad driver in located in the hidden devices with the following error:

"This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)."

I checked in the BIOS and the touchpad is activated
I tried to deinstall the driver and reinstall it from toshiba website with no sucess
Thanks in advance for any help

Ok, so the laptop cd drive looks like it's reading a cd, but then it doesn't. Used a Win 98 boot disk to see if that would work, and when I change to the cd drive, it says unable to read. Is there any way that I can possibly fix my CD drive, or somehow get an operating system, even if it's not windows, into my laptop so I can maybe fix the problem from there? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Can somebody please help me? This is driving me nuts. 
 
For about a week maybe more, I cannot get the laptop screen to scroll when I use my touchpad.
 
I have Windows 8, 32bit operating system. I use Google Chrome browser, and my computer had/has Synaptics Device Driver on it. I went into the control panel Mouse section and I get this pop up message (attached). I am not sure if I can uninstall this because I don't know if my mouse won't work at all? I tried installing the driver again, but I don't know if that did anything?
 
I don't really know anything about this and would be grateful if somebody would help.

Do you have an external mouse that you can connect?
The operating system should recognize it and allow you to do the necessary repairs for the touchpad

Hello I have a Toshiba Tecra M laptop without a functioning screen The original screen died over the course of a couple of days I believe it Still Doesn't Work Screen Laptop Replaced, was the backlight The screen would go very dark but I could still see images on the screen very faintly I would press the toggle switch that syncs with an external monitor a couple of times and eventually the screen would come on again This went on for a couple of days until finally I could see the screen trying to come on partially lighting one corner but unable to turn on I connected my laptop to an external monitor and was able to get by with that while I waited for my replacement to come I ordered a quot screen caddy quot from eBay the same model as my laptop sold as-is for parts Among the working parts on it were the screen and the fingerpad mouse which I also needed The quot screen caddy quot is unable to boot but it starts the process enough so that you can see the screen does work properly The trouble is that when I put the screen Laptop Screen Replaced, Still Doesn't Work into my own computer Laptop Screen Replaced, Still Doesn't Work I don t get any image at all The symptoms are different from my original problem I m not able to see images on the screen even faintly I can see that the backlight does come on I ve checked the connections and cannot find a problem I m out of ideas for what to try Any suggestions would be most appreciated Thank you nbsp

A:Laptop Screen Replaced, Still Doesn't Work

The backlight is usually all or nothing. Did you change the Inverter as well as the screen ?

Please explain what a 'screen caddy' is and exactly which parts you have exchanged.

A:Laptop will not turn on/screen doesn't work

If you see normal views on the external screen, you likely have burned out your LCD Screen inverter. You should be able to find replacements online, but you need experience installing inverters. There are about 18 screws to remove since you must disassemble the top half of the case, and remove the screen to access the inverter socket which is at the bottom of the screen. Usually you can get an inverter for $15, but there are almost no two alike so be sure you have the correct one.

When I turn it on now it logs on but neither my keyboard or mousepad works. Doesn't work with an external keyboard or mouse either.

Anyone knows what to do?

Hey guys,

I have a Sony Vaio VPCEH15EN laptop & the OS is Windows 7 home basic. I have a wifi router which is of TPLINK.

The wifi won't connect to my laptop but it works fine on my mobile..it would only start working when I use the ethernet cable. I never had this problem before. I have tried everything ..I also tried the winsockfix.bat but all my efforts have gone in vain..I just don't know if the wifi router is faulty or the modem of my ISP...Please help me solve this problem.

Best Regards,
Om
 

A:Wifi on my laptop won't work but works when I use the ethernet cable

I have solved the problem by myself. To do this, first you have to disconnect your Ethernet cable from your laptop and follow the steps: Start>Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Manage Wireless Networks and remove all wireless connections by right click on it and select Remove network from the drop down menu. After doing this, close the windows and scan for the Wi-Fi networks. Click on the available network and select connect. After a while, you will be asked to give a password for your Wi-Fi connection. Type the password and click on connect button. And now will be connected to your Wi-Fi network via wireless.

May be it will help you.

So I wanted to restore my PC by down grading from win8 to win7 ( I've done that many times )
but I never use the same .iso file, and this time, when I download the proper file to get my wifi working ( I'm using an asus k55a ) it unfortunately doesn't work.

It says "The installation XML file is either missing or corrupted. The setup application will exit! "
I've searched and I couldn't find any help to get this problem gone so I decided to go back to window 8, but I'm not able to boot from any .iso file, neither in window7
For some reasons I can only boot from DVD/CD but when I get to boot nothing happen ...

So I'm a bit stuck here, if someone could give me any advice that would be much appreciated,

I have a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10. When I am at work the wifi connection works perfectly fine. However when I go home the wifi is extremely spotty. It will work and then randomly I will have trouble opening a webpage or checking my email. It will say my network connection is unavailable. The strange thing is my wife's wifi on her laptop will work perfectly fine even when mine is not. Is there a setting on my laptop that is getting messed up as I move between networks? Thanks for the help.

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file to the faulty PC and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply

Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You will need to have NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.
On windows 8 - (i do not have windows 8) but, it would appear that, When you first try to run, you may get a message that .net framework is needed, and included in that message is a link to download/install.

Run the program

A user guide is available here

post a screen shot of the program running.
if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information.

post which SSID name is yours, its located in the list, under network "Adapter Name" (1st column)
Note:
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better
