Q: Transferring phone numbers to Sony Ericsson mobile phone


Is there a programme on Windows that will transfer the phone numbers from my AOL address book to my Sony Ericsson phone? Or any other software where I can store all the numbers and then transfer all the numbers to each new phone?

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.)

A:Mobile hotspot issues

What OS is on the Laptop and which Firewall are you using?

The problem appears to exist purely between my laptop and my phone. When attempting to connect it will begin authenticating and then disconnect, offering me the troubleshooter.Click to expand...

huh? Connecting how: Bluetooth, Infra Red? The WiFi adaptors of both the phone and the laptop are never going to connect, unless you're attempting peer-to-peer which has limited utility.

If you're connecting via a router, then the PC is not the issue.

I'm trying to connect my PC and my Asus Zenfone 2 with Bluetooth. When I use the "add a device" wizard on Windows 8.1, my mobile phone is detected, but when I try to add it I get: "Windows doesn't have a network profile for this device".

Also, when I try to detect my computer with my mobile phone, its not detected.

I'm using a Trust USB 2.0 dongle Bluetooth adapter (the little one you insert on the usb port) that came with a keyboard and mouse Bluetooth set that I used. Could that dongle be designed only for the bluetooth keyboard and mouse set?

A:I cannot connect my phone to my PC (Windows 8.1) with Bluetooth

The Bluetooth device seems fine as it already detected your keyboard and mouse. However, your phone seems not supported with the current Bluetooth device and you might need to take another look.

A:Nvidia removes overclocking from 900M mobile GPUs, a feature advertised on some notebooks

LOL it is clearly a move by Nvidia to force people to upgrade more often. They will probably take the 980m and do the same thing they did with the 680MX -> keep re-releasing it with 10% higher clocks every year.

Problem is that someone with a 680mx could just overclock it 30% and get an 880m. However this should be a problem for Nvidia, not us. If they want us to upgrade, give us something worth upgrading to!

Dear Experts

My Windows 7 laptop connected to internet via my mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 by tethering portable Wi-Fi hotspot.

I am a technician field and I need to connect my laptop via USB port to an Ericsson MiniLink (telecom NE) node to do configuration.

Whenever I connect the USB cable from the laptop to Ericsson my internet gets dropped, while this didn?t happen to my coworker who is using the same laptop brand as mine.
By the way the Ericsson software that I installed on my laptop create the attached socket called : "Ericsson USBLAN adapter" on my computer's network and that would be used for the USB communication

I've tried multiple smartphones over the past few months, but the more I use them, the more I hate them.

Phone: they have buttons on the side and front, so unless I hold the phone like some delicate photograph, the phone goes crazy with unwanted buttons pressed. Useless.

Web browsing: the screen is too small to read, even with reading glasses on. Useless.

Music: the battery dies after a few minutes of music. Useless.

Texting or email: the tiny keyboard is constantly hitting the wrong keys. Or sometimes, the autocorrect will change words I typed correctly. Nobody can figure out how to turn off autocorrect, including phone salesmen. Useless.

Battery life: the phones often die after being unplugged for an hour. Useless.

Glass surface: despite daily wiping, the glass looks greasy, encrusted with slime. It makes me hate looking at it or touching it.

Camera: the unwanted camera takes several unwanted pictures a day while I am trying to do other things.

So what should I do? If I get a non-smart phone, then people call me a geezer.

A:Remote access ok via phone, doesnt work via PC

Ok I have to ask first when you are using your phone is it always using mobile data or do you connect it at work via wifi? When reason that makes sense to me is at your work they maybe blocking the remote port. I guess it all depends on what you are using also. If you are just using standard RDP then they might be blocking port 3389. If you could give further information on how you are connecting remotely whether using software such as teamviewer or just standard RDP. Also how do you have your router configured. I can better understand witht is information thanks....

Hi I'm not a tech-y person so I'm just hoping that someone can help me.

I recently bought a new laptop it's a Lenovo G40

Intel Core i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz 2.40 GHz
RAM: 4.00GB
64-bit Operating System
Windows 8.1 Single Language
I got home, downloaded and installed Firefox for me to use as my default browser. I got to use it for awhile (about 3 hrs) then I tried going on Facebook and it was taking too long to load. Then I tried it on my phone, it loaded faster than on my laptop. I tried searching (on both devices) random stuff on google (e.g. Miley Cyrus) and it took my laptop about 3 mins to load and my phone only took less than a minute to load. I did a speedtest on my laptop and I got 3.4mbps as a result (that's fast enough right?).

I really hope someone could help me with this because I'm currently student and I have a lot of requirements to do and I can't do that without a laptop and internet.

A:Slow internet on laptop but fast on phone

So, all 3 are on WiFi. Can you run a test with either of the laptops connected with an Ethernet cable and let us know the results? I suspect your wireless router has 802.11N, and that your phone supports it but your PCs only support 802.11G. 802.11N and G don't always play nicely together, and no 802.11G implementations is ever going to deliver 49Mbps of application layer throughput.

Have to choose a new work phone but I have a hard time deciding ... Friend's Galaxy S5 and 8200 mah battery seems awesome so Apple and Microsoft are not up to my mind. Since the new phone is supposed to live with me for like 2 years, so..what's the average life span of Samsung phone?
Anyone have opinions? Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy S5?

A:Need a phone to live with me for like 2 years

A smartphone can last for numerous years as long as you don't abuse it. It isn't a matter of lifespan since most phone hardware gets dated after 2-4 years and you are going to want an upgrade. It will still work even after the cell service is ended.

A:Linux machine, 1tb ext. hd, xbox 360 and sony bravia pc

I'm betting your external drive is formatted NTFS or EXT3/4 and your TV can't read that filesystem. You could try using an out-of-spec FAT32 filesystem that uses up your entire drive (you'll have to format with something other than Windows - gparted should be fine). You could also try setting up some sort of DLNA server that I think your TV can access easily. There are many options for that so I'd google "setting up a DLNA server". Remember also that if you go FAT32 that your file sizes will be limited to 4GB or smaller.

However, the light on the new charger was blinking whenever I plug it into the laptop and turned solid again when I unplug it.

Could you please help me fix this? All my assignments and works are in this laptop and I need it very soon.

Ps. I have tried removing the battery and it still doesn't work. Also I won't be able to try another charger.

So yes, it is compatible with EU providers. Caution however; your current provider will bill you for roaming charges. When in Europe, I always buy a local SIM card and fund it with enough credit to last the trip - - that will also give you a local phone number. If you book theater events or need to call for reservations, they will be more likely to answer the phone.

I'll add my 2cents

1) Seems there's always something nicer, better, faster on the horizon... my take: Unless you really know something is out in the next 30days or so I go for what I know instead of stressing on the "next thing"

2) I know several people who LOVE their Galaxy Note 3 - but their all women and have a purse to keep them in. I can't make your decision but you really need to weigh how much you really need/want the pen vs. convenience of a phone that slips into a shirt or pants pocket

p.s. that's why I went with the S4 instead of the Galaxy when I recently upgraded my own phone
p.p.s. I'm very happy with the S4 but will add I also bought and like the flip cover. I also know someone without the "S cover" - and their phone sometimes thinks the have the S cover and "blacks out" into the S cover phone screen

I need a smartphone that I can put a document with addresses and phone numbers on and the smartphone will hyperlink the number straight from the document.

I currently use iPhone 3gs and a app (Documents by Savy Soda) and it works: wifi doc to phone; open app; open doc; touch phone number and WaLa! it calls the number

I tried Windows phone thinking with Word and Excel on it, the phone would call from the document. NOT! I sent a file to a friend who has and Android phone and it won't do it either.

"State-of-the-art mobile computing environments must deal with scarce and dynamically varying resources-in particular, the network quality of service. Applications which execute in such environments need to adapt to the dynamic operating conditions in order to preserve the illusion of seamlessness for the end-user as far as possible. The paper proposes a framework for adaptation which provides applications with runtime support for quality of service negotiation, monitoring, and notification. Applications only need to specify the policy of adaptation at a high level, and are shielded from the mechanics of adaptation. The paper describes the design and implementation of the framework of adaptation as a part of the Prayer mobile computing environment"...

Hi all,

My SONY VAIO VGN-TX3XP has been my business PC for a while.
Recently, I got it back into business, but I noticed that it is extremely slow.

I do not care of the data already there (have been moved to other PCs) but I really need to have this one working in a proper way. Well at least not have the IE open after 4-5 minutes after pressing the IE icon.

Is there a way to figure out what slows it down, as well as fix what ever can be fixed?

Thank you in advance,

No viruses, running windows 8. but I have an old pent 4 , 2.8 dual processor running xp that flogs the arse off it.
I found this on another site to see if there is any conflicts with explorer.

Hi all,
I have a Sapphire 6950 2GB Dual Fan Edition (reference BIOS though, stock clocks, all standard - so the standard AMD drivers are used).

I'm on the latest drivers (Catalyst 12.10, OpenGL, etc), and everything except Sony Vegas works fine with my card.

I don't want to switch to something like Premiere because I like Vegas, but I really do need GPU acceleration, and can't figure out why this isn't working (because many people buy the 6950/6970 as video editing cards)...

So does anybody have any idea as to what might be the problem?

FYI - When in Vegas, there is no option to turn on GPU acceleration, it's blanked out.


A:AMD 6950 + Sony Vegas = :(

Firstly, upgrade to the latest drivers for the HD 6950.

You will want to do a clean uninstall using this AMD Graphics Driver uninstaller.
Then, you will want to download these drivers.

After going through a clean install of drivers. Try again to use the GPU acceleration. If it still doesn't work, reply back.

If I use the numbers, ie. 1234567890 they come out as !"$%^&*(), whatever I do with CapsLock or NumLock. If I try \,./ I get |<>? However if I boot into safe mode it all seems to work fine.

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ18E which is experience some major problems at the moment.
Firstly, I get 'nvlddmkm' problem about every 10mins or thereabouts which causes the screen to lock, go fuzzy, blank the screen and then revive and become functional again.

This can eventually, or straight away, lead to a total fuzzy screen lock-up where I simply have to hit the off button to restart the computer.
This is also interspersed by various other screens such as those below; mixed pages, blue screen, which seem to have come from the Matrix.

The computer is about four years old and the front left of it can get very hot.
Is it just knackered?
Would a re-format and re-install do the trick?

Any ideas or solutions?

So my laptop's hard drive needs to be replaced. I need help finding one in that I'm looking for something that may last. My lap top model number is VPCF126FM and it is a song vaio. I know very little about computers, but we were hoping to buy one and have someone put it in. We just wanna make sure our person doesn't put a crappy part in so we would rather buy it for him to replace with us present. I know that seems like overkill... Anyways all I know is that any SATA hard drive should do, but I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

A:Need help with selecting a laptop hard drive for a Sony VAIO

Tough right now. The top seven hard drive factories in the world were under water in a National flood from September to December... and the prices of what drives are still available have gone way up... Only Toshiba, as far as I know, escaped the flood.
You need to know if your current hard drive is and IDE or SATA, first.
Your best choices are Western Digital, Seagate, and Toshiba. Avoid Hitachi, Samsung, Maxtor, and any other brands. Then try to find something in the 160 GB to 250 GB if long term use is important. You can find laptop SATA hard drives these days from 80 GB to 800 GB, but be prepared to pay a premium. Were it my computer, I would look for a 250 GB Western Digital black, or Toshiba, or Seagate, or Western Digital Green in that order. I would not install any other brand. There are good online stores in USA, Great Britain, France, Canada, and several other countries.
So tell us more.

I have a Telstra Elite Mobile WiFi device that I use for work. Currently I have four Laptop computers that connect through this device to the internet; however, I have another four devices that need to be able to connect to the internet and was wondering if there was anyway that I could connect a wireless router to the Telstra WiFi device to enable the extra devices to use the internet connection through the one mobile broadband device.



A:Can I connect a router to a Telstra Elite mobile Wi-Fi device

the features make note

Connects up to 5 Wi-Fi enabled devicesClick to expand...

which says it is acting like a router for itself. That allows you to attach a SWITCH
to one port and add your extra devices to the switch.

If you already have an extra router, connect a port from the Telstra Elite to a LAN port on the router (leave the WAN port empty).
You will also need to disable the DHCP service in the second router.

After transferring all of my saved files (pictures, videos, mp3s) from my 500gb Seagate external hard drive to my new Western Digital 2tb hard drive, over half of everything has been corrupted. I don't know why, I am devastated right now.

When I first started transferring all of my files to my new external hard drive, I realized I had to format it in order to transfer large files. So I had to go back and copy everything right back to my old hard drive. After I finished formatting the new one, I copied everything back to it. Now not only are most of my files from the new one is screwed up, but most everything on my old external hard drive is corrupt too. Is there a way to fix the files that has been damaged and why did this happen in the first place?

A:Files bad after transferring to external hard drive

screwed up how? can you be specific? If the files were corrupted on the old hard drive and you attempted to copy them the OS would give you errors while copying them. If you did not get an error message while copying them than the OS (I assume windows) did not see them as corrupted.

Hello. Since a year ago I have been seeing white lines across the screen of my laptop. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NR430E Laptop. The white lines/band running horizontally across the screen is not permanent, and goes off if point pressure is applied from the top coverside of the screen, or on the face of the screen.

The problem seems like a lose connection but one could not be found when the laptop was opened up.

Do note, that the LCD screen does work and does not go off or black when these white lines take over. Also the white lines are not constantly going across the screen and usually only last for a few seconds. Also when the laptop is hooked up to a TV via a VGA cable, the white horozontal lines do not show up on the TV even when they are on the computer.

The display behaves like what happened when you distorted the controls of an analogue monitor beyond the resolution that it was capable of displaying.

It also gets very hot on the top right corner between the keyboard and the display bezel. Don't know what to make of it.

The on-off button lights up, the 3 caps lock/scroll lock, etc lights switch on and remain on, but nothing appears on screen and nothing furter appears to happen.

I've left the laptop on charge for a couple of days and retried, same outcome. I've tried starting from the power cable and no battery, same outcome.

Do you have any ideas to as to what might have happened and how I can fix it? Would my hard-drive be corrupting thus losing all the data stored? How would I be able to hook the hard-drive up to another machine and copy off all the data?


A:Sony Vaio laptop won't switch on

Hello, it looks like there is something wrong with your screen, but is it always just black even from starting? Because on start you could enter recovery mode and start the laptop in safe mode, but if it's impossible to do so, then you can try to connect your laptop to external PC if you have one. Then you will see what's going on and figure out is it a screen problem or the whole system is messed up. Good luck!

A:Sony VAIO VGN-AW335J/H cleaning question

I have not heard of that symptom. Install this so you can see your core temps, If the temps are much above 80C when your are playing games or watching videos then it should be cleaned.

Idle temps should be closer to 50C to 60C, the lower the better.

Take the case off and blow all the dust out with a can of compressed air, put something like a cocktail stick in the fan to stop it spinning and blow all the dust out of the heatsink.

ok, so i've gone and done something a bit daft, as always when i ask for help here on TS.

my ever reliable NEC ND6750a DVD drive finally gave up, so in my inifinite wisdom i went to the store and bought something off the shelf which looked like it would do the job (brow becomes furrowed).

i bought a Sony Optiarc AD7580a.

which now seems a mistake. having read up a bit on the internet it seems that Toshiba laptops don't like 'em that much and mine won't even recognise the drive or power it up so i can even open it.

anyways, some people have pointed out that i may need to change the IDE settings with a utility.

but the utilities usually point to the drive being an AD-7590a...

so, the question is; will that utility work or can anyone recommend another tool or another way to proceed..?? p-l-e-a-s-e-!!

A:Sony Optiarc AD7580a

I'd have thought that even if the Toshiba laptops had an incompatibility with the drive it should still be getting power for the eject to function. I've never had to switch out a laptop drive, my father has and got a replacement that was a slot drive and spend a day trying to figure out why "eject" from My Computer wouldn't open the DVD tray

If it is like a desktop drive in all but its form factor, then as long as it is getting power it should eject. The connections and power for the drive will be a universal standard and not something specific to Toshiba (at least I wouldn't think they would have put a proprietary connection in their laptops). See if you can test it on another machine, or get them to verify the drive itself is working in the shop you bought it from.

A:Mobile Athlon runs at 40% speed

The Barton 2400+ is supposed to be clocked at 1800MHz. Check whether AMD Cool And Quiet is enabled in the BIOS. If it is, disable it. The CPU should then definitely function at 1800MHz at all times. Cool And Quiet usually lowers the speed when the system is idle to conserve power.

The Bus Speed should be 266MHz with the multiplier at 13.5, I think.

I'm going to buy a laptop sometime in the next month or two and have some questions;

I was very interested in the Samsung QX410 but stores here in Canada no longer carry it. Should I wait for Samsung next 14" laptop (size i want) as they stated that 2011 will see a large surge in their laptops (and they plan to fight apple on top dog);


Should i just spend the grand on the sony VPCS131FDS which has the same specs as the samsung but is 13.3" instead?

So I have a pristine Sony PCG-GR K very little use however a couple years ago the HDD went bad I replaced the drive and attempted to format the new drive and re-install the OS but when the system is Sony DVD laptop turned on now the DVD does not spin up The system Sony laptop DVD merely reverts to the HDD and comes up Sony laptop DVD with quot Can t find operating system quot The DVD was working fine prior to the HDD problem and I have to reemphasize this system has very little use So my thoughts are that the DVD is not the problem as you can still set it as the boot drive in the BIOS My thought are that the DVD drivers can t be found thus there s no interaction with it So how do you get the drivers installed if I can t even get the Hard drive formatted and working somewhat The other road of course is that the DVD has actually failed and they are getting scarce I have found a couple for or so but it would seemingly be foolish at this point to go this route Any ideas thanks nbsp

A:Sony laptop DVD

Your way out of this is to get an external CD/DVD drive, set it to 1st boot device in the bios and reinstall the OS from there.

You could also try taking the drive out and refitting to reseat the connections.

I just reinstalled XP on my desktop on a fresh hard drive Was able to load disks of programs using the dvd drive then it just would not read anymore dvds The icon shows in My Computer and is listed in the RW DRU-840A not Sony anymore My will DVD read Device Manager The icon will change My Sony DVD RW DRU-840A will not read anymore to whatever is on the dvd I put in but then displays the message quot only part of a read process memory or write process memory request was completed quot I uninstalled the secondary ide controller amp rebooted and nothing changed I then uninstalled the device in the device manager rebooted and again nothing happened If I am not mistaken there are no drivers for this and so they would not need to be updated right What am I missing is something swithed off or hooked up wrong the hard drive is on the ide cable first then the dvd drive cause this is the only way both would work a computer dude did that I should have SP installed as well as whatever updates windows keeps sending me And if I got a sata dvd drive would this happen too cause i only have one place on the board to hook up a ide cable Thanks for helping nbsp

A:My Sony DVD RW DRU-840A will not read anymore

There will be generic drivers installed from your XP disc try this method to reinstall them.

Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click System and Maintenance, and then click System,
On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
In Device Manager, expand DVD/CD-ROM drives, right-click the CD and DVD devices, and then click Uninstall.
When you are prompted to confirm that you want to remove the device, click OK.
Restart the computer.
After the computer restarts, the drivers will be automatically installed.Click to expand...

If that makes no diference the chances are that the drive has failed. There are two lasers in the drive have you tried it with both DVD's and CD's, you might find it works with one and not the other.

Make sure you have the hard drive jumper set for Master and the DVD jumper set for Slave. It is, apparently, much better to have the Hard Drive on the end of the cable.

You should have no problems setting up a SATA DVD drive as long as you install the correct SATA drivers for your motherboard, they will be available from the manufacturers site.

A:Choosing between types of SSDs for mobile workstation

it looks like they use Samsung FlashSSD drives.

they are not to bad actually and far better then i would have expected from Dell.
the Samsung FlashSSD on the website has pretty decent specs but i am not sure if that is the exact same drive with same specs.

edit: in any case you probably would fair better with an aftermarket drive like the ocz vertex 2 or the corsair force but then you would probably not have dell's recovery partition on it etc. unless you clone it.

if you would do that you could either save by not getting a hdd altogether from dell or use the 7200rpm that it comes with as storage drive

I was having some trouble with my graphics card and borrowed one to test from a friend, the thing is after i checked the Windows Indexing numbers i was surprised to see the 'smaller memory' card had a higher score and wanted to know how the scores are marked on the graphics side.

My card is a ASUS EAH 4350 1Gb Silent card and had a Graphics score of 3.8 and a Gaming Graphics score of 5.8

Friends card is nVidia Geforce 8600 GT 256MB and has a Graphics score of 5.9 and a Gaming Graphics score of 6.4

I thought mine having larger memory would of been a higher score but apparently not?

A:Win 7 indexing graphics numbers

memory is only a part of the card more is not always better the other card is better overall for gaming imo.

Hello to all I saw this topic dating back to but it seemed that at DVD stopped DVDs ROM reading CDs Sony Vaio and made home that time the drives were not working were stopping That is not my issue Before suggested I have tried what was recommended then uninstalling the drive and removing lower and upper in the registry sorry cannot remember what they were Ok here is what I have and what it has been doing for over a year I have a Sony Vaio laptop CR E Vista Over a year ago it just stopped reading home made disks My daughter s wedding disk the disk of my X rays from the Doctor music regardless when put in they were seen as blank Sometimes if I kept putting them in they would be recognized but mostly not I got a cdrom Sony Vaio DVD ROM stopped reading home made CDs and DVDs cleaner used it and it seemed to work for a good while However it is doing it again If I burned the disk on this system before it would read it but I am not sure if that is the case now It makes me crazy I went and got a new cleaner and have done all that I know to do Sony you suck Too many ppl have had this problem My next laptop will NOT be a Sony So if I put a commercial cd or dvd in it works fine Any suggestions Can I clean this sucker any other way nbsp

A:Sony Vaio DVD ROM stopped reading home made CDs and DVDs

In any CD/DVD RW drive, there are 2 'lasers'. One is for reading, the other for writing.
From what you have said, it sounds as if the 'writing' head has lost power, or is failing in some way.
So when you use a commercial DVD it reads perfectly, but when you try to load from the DVD's you burned on that drive, it is unreliable.
The only real answer is to buy a new CD/DVD drive unit. It's very easy to fit, and not very expensive either. I have found also that some CD/DVD drives seem to read 'bought' discs better than others, maybe some alignment differences between manufacturers ?
When you get a new drive installed, you can make new copies of the unreliable discs.
If you don't like the idea of taking the drive out, you can buy a stand-alone CD/DVD RW that will plug into (usually 2) USB ports. Not good on a laptop ! There are some that will use only 1 USB port though. Hope that's of help.
* This is one I have, but be aware that the read/write speed is only X8 on DVD.

With proliferation of internet phones, does anybody have any idea how HyperTerminal used via dial-up through a traditional land line can be done with these new internet phone?

A:Using HyperTerminal over Internet phone

hmm; I think there's a problem with the concept.

Hyper Terminal is like Telnet; it accesses a shell account at the remote site.

*IF* a remote site would still have modems AND allow dial-in access, then one might
be able to make this work and your question then gets solved on the smartphone with the right App.

I think the premise is not very probable any longer - - who allows dial-in when 99.9% of the world is not DSL or Cable connected?
