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.)

This is my first time posting so i hope its in the right place. Here it goes:

I have just replaced my WiFi card from (BCM943228HMB) to BCM94352HMB. Before replacing my WiFi card i done the following:

1. Made computer boot in safe mode with networking.

After that i replaced the card, then booted into windows 10 (safe mode with networking) and checked device manager. Everything was OK (See attached picture). I then tried to turn on WiFi, but it does not turn on. Any help is appreciated.

Hahaahahaha don't look at the other tab

A:WiFi not working after replacing WiFi card [BCM94352HMB]

Why are you booting into safe mode? I would connect a network cable to the wired network port, if possible for you. In regular windows, not safe mode, right click on the 802.11ac network controller and uninstall. Right click on the top device manager entry for the computer itself and select scan for new hardware.

We have had WiFi for about 10 days now, and everything was ok until yesterday. WiFi went down, for some reason. We have 2 desktops PCs connected to router via cables, and 2 smartphones (Google Nexus S running Android 4.0.3 and Nokia N96 running old Symbian, if it matters) that go with without wires. The thing is, when my brother, turns on his PC, WiFi doesn't work for any of us, not on my PC nor on any smartphone, or his PC. When he shuts his PC down, it's all OK again. He did install (automatic) Windows Update.
Why is this all of a sudden happening? And how do we fix it?

A:Wifi not working on ASUS laptop, LAN working fine

Maybe the switch or adapter is defective. Some other ideas ...

Do you have an ASUS utility to also turn the wireless on/off? (I have an HP utility on one of my laptops that will individually control the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if the physical switch is on.)

In Device Manager right click on the adapter - Properties - Advanced tab. Sometimes there is a Property in there that allows turning the adapter on/off.

If the card is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace the card several times to fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems.

I have a PC connected to a smc router (smc networks wbr14-g2) I have my internet modem connected to this router so I can have a strong wifi connection (my internet modem is pretty far away).

I configured the wifi signal, I added a WEP key, etc. Now I can connect my smartphone easily and has a strong internet connection, but my PC doesn't, it recognizes the signal, it connects to it, but it tells me that I have no internet access.

It seems strange to me that my smartphone can connect to internet, even play netflix, but my PC can't.

Any tips?

I have windows 7 operating system.

So i restored my computer to factory settings and I still got this problem. Does this mean my Wifi Card is bad? Is it a virus? as you can tell i'm not too computer savvy.

If any one can please help I'd appreciate it.

form one day to the next my somewhat old computer running Windows XP died. On trying to start it it tells me the file windows\system32\config\system cannot be found or is corrupt. it suggests i repair this with the Windows starup CD and that I press 'r" at the first screen, which I do but nothing happens.

I get a blue screen that says Windows Starup . At the bottom it tells me first Setup is loading files (windows executive) then (hardware abstraction layer) then (kernel debugger dll)

Then it tells me XXX.sys could not be loaded where xxx changes every time i try this (the last time it was setupdd.sys -- other time it was isapnp.sys)

It says "The eror code is 14. Setpup cannot continue Press any key to quit"

Any suggestion on how I can get past this?

From time to time when I check for updates to windows xp there is one their that is for "net framework" undate. I haven't updated this yet. What is it? and should I update?

A:Wndows net frame

.NET framework is an API.In short, an API is a program that doesn't do anything on it's own, but allows you to write other programs more easily.For example, a programmer can write his own to code to do common stuff like formatting the date, displaying a dialog box, etc.But it would be much easier to write one generic API, and have everyone use that.I'm not sure which update you're seeing, there are several related to .NET:o If it's an UPDATE then you'll want it, it will probably fix security and stability issues.o If it's the .NET package then you don't need it, but it would not harm installing it (Takes a while though).

A:how to install wndows 7

Why do you want to install Windows 7? According to the data sheet for your model, it comes with either Windows 7 or Windows 8 installed. Which operating system did your system come with and is it running properly now? If the computer came with Windows 8 then there is no reason to install Windows 7. Windows 8, when operated from the Desktop, looks and acts pretty much like Windows 7 if you install the $5 application Start8.

1) Yes, I installed it on top of the Windows 8 free Preview Edition, and it works fine. You do not need to install it on top of XP, Vista, or 7.

2) I easily installed a Start button on the classic desktop. Reports that MS would make that impossible are not true.

3) No gadgets! And it won't let you install them, nor will it let you install Yahoo Widgets. I quickly found a free program and I'm happily running gadgets.

4) I can't find the anti-virus program.

5) As with the preview version, I turn off the password, and it keeps turning itself back on.

6) Internet Explorer 10 works great.

And i am currently connected to the internet through lan so my internet is working. and wifi is working on another laptop perfectly fine.

I don't know the inspirons as well as I know the Dell Latitudes but I guessing they have the same features. On the older Latitudes you can toggle the wireless NIC on or off by pressing Ctrl + F2. The newer Latitudes have a small switch on the left side of the notebook that turns the wireless on or off. One more thing I would make sure the power cord is plugged in with power on the notebook. Sometime the Wired NIC won't work on battery power, maybe the wireless NIC is the same way.

I just had someone put a new fan into my hp g62-347nr windows 7, my laptop is working again but now there's a red x on the wifi icon and it says not connected and no connections available. When I went to the device manager it didn't detect wifi. Didn't have it on the list. Can someone please help me figure out how to make the wifi working hotkey which is f12 on my keyboard is off and won't turn on.

Hi, I have this old laptop, Suddenly it cannot connect to my home wifi. All the other devices at home can connect to that. This laptop can connect to internet through a cable to the router. Only thing is wifi is not working
Relevancy 41.28%

I moved into a new place about 6 weeks back, aware that the wifi signal was weakest in my room
however, as of about 3 days ago, my laptop (Toshiba) refuses to connect in my room, but also won't show up any of at least 10 neighbouring networks that usually appear
my phone and other devices connect quite alright, and when I go into the main room, where the router is, my laptop connects- heck it connects whilst outside my room! just not inside
though even when I sit next to the router, only the router from my house shows up and none of my neighbours ones do
it's all very odd and quite confused as to why it's happened and how I could fix it
any ideas?
thank you

A:wifi not working where it once did

Possibly a driver issue. I'm assuming that you are using an integrated wireless adapter. Make sure you have the latest driver from Toshiba's web site. If you already have the latest driver reinstall it anyhow in case the installed instance is corrupted.

Mostly sounds like a broken or disconnected antenna. If your wireless adapter is easily accessed via a cover on the laptop's bottom make sure the antenna leads are secure. While you're there remove and reinsert the card carefully and firmly several times to clean off any potential corrosion on the contacts.

A:WIFI not working

My first thing would be to check Device Manager to make sure it has drivers loaded for all your hardware. I am betting you are correct in that you didn't install a driver for your Wifi card. Windows XP isn't going to have a native driver for it in the install.

You can check HP's support site to see if they have a driver for XP.

Hi everyone. I have a Windows XP machine and it is directly connected to my router by ethernet. My phone and my laptop are connected using the home wifi that the same router provides. Just an hour ago, my phone or my laptop are not able to find my router and are completely disconnected from the internet. I have tried resetting my router and taking the power cable out for 10 seconds but nothing has happened. My Windows XP machine that is directly connected to my router is connecting to the internet as usual. What can I do to fix the problem with my laptop and phone not being able to connect?
P.S: My Windows XP machine does not have wifi. That is why I have to connect it using an ethernet cable.

Wifi is not working from one day, not sure what happend. The wireless adapters found uninstalled from the system. Attached is the screeshot of the issue related to the adapter. Downloaded all the possibe drivers and tried to install but couldn't isnatll any of the driver. Looking forward for the possible solution.

A:Wifi not working

Hi: Your screenshot shows that there is no wireless network adapter present. This could be due to: It is disabled in the BIOS.  Go into the BIOS and check to make sure the wireless network adapter is enabled if there is a setting that shows the wireless network adapter status. You may need to install the HP Connection Manager software and use that software to turn on the wireless network adapter. The wireless network adapter has a hardware issue and is no longer working.  As a first step, remove and reseat the wireless card and see if that works.  Refer to the service manual for the wireless card removal and replacement procedures.  Try to reseat the card without having to remove the antenna connections.

In looking at the SUPPORT PAGE for that model, this warning pops up.  HP has not tested this product for upgrade to Windows 10 and will not be developing Windows 10 drivers for this product. If the switch to Windows 10 was working and now it is not, it is common for a Windows 10 update to cause issues.  It most likely is a driver issue, either way.  Look for the Hardware ID for the WiFi adapter in Device manager and then use the manufacturer's driver for Windows 10.

I moved you to Networking from Web & Email.

Are you saying that you have internet access through the router when using ethernet but via Wi-Fi? And the wireless problem is with multiple devices that used to work?

Reset the router to factory settings and reconfigure it, but leave the wireless unsecured until you get success.

While connected by both wireless and ethernet ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

Hello everyone, I'm having trouble with my wifi. Unlike many other cases, my wifi worked after I installed Windows 8. However, yesterday we messed around with our wifi (we set up two networks - one regular, one as a guest network), and eventually my computer stopped showing any wifi networks at all. There are 3 networks around me, one is our neighbor's network, two are ours. One is a guest wifi, one is our regular wifi.
I have a dual boot setup with Ubuntu and Win8, so I tried booting into Ubuntu. Ubuntu recognizes all the networks around us, and so do all the other computers on our network. Ethernet still works, but after resetting the wireless adapter without an ethernet cable attached, the computer doesn't even recognize any networks at all (still no cables attached). After resetting the wifi adapter, there is no way to see any networks besides ethernet anymore.
Help! How can I get my wifi working again?

I was watching Stargate SG-1 on Hulu when the internet just cut out. A screen popped up and said, "We're sorry, but we cannot stream your video at this time. Please try again later." Soon after, I realized my WiFi was out. Not only was it not connecting, but it wasn't even seeing the network; my phone and other devices see and connect fine.

I'm sorry but I don't remember everything I did, been working on it for a while. Here's what I do remember -

I tried disabling and reenabling my network card: didn't work.
Device manager says it is working fine, driver is up to date.
Restarted my computer: didn't work.
I ran the troubleshoot: no problems found.
Ran malware, spyware, and virus scans: just a few cookies and other small stuff, didn't fix the WiFi.

Try getting rid of windows defender, its not a very good bit of software.
Its possible just doing that may fix your problem.

When trying to open Windows Defender, nothing happens. When trying to initiate a Windows Defender scan from within Control Panel, the following message appears:

"This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions placed on this computer. Please contact system administrator."

I am, of course, same. Whatever shall I do???

My new PC with Wndos 7 can't read the files on CD-RW's made with my old PC with Wndos 98"E. I get the message "file or directory is corrupted and unreadable". Also, I can't write to those CD's in Wndos 7. I get the message that the CD is full when in fact the CD-RW has a lot of space left. Any help?

A:my new pc w/wndows 7 can't read CD's from windows 98

You might need a UDF reader - how where the disk originally created (Nero InCD?).

Or you could try an laternate player such as VideoLan Player.

Roxio UDF standalone reader - this might work on anything except Nero InCD disks (if I recall, Nero had some proprietary SW back then..... but that was a long time ago)

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!
Click here to download HJTInstall.exe

Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
Click on Install.
It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help me please.....I have a PC which has 2 windows 7 installed through a partition, Is it possible to return it back to one operating system again as it's very slow?

The second windows was added by a family member for another user but it's not needed any more.

I have no idea how to do this, I've googled around for help with this but can't find what I need.

Any advice would be very welcome.

Thank you very much in advance

i have a Toshiba LX830-137but do not see an update to windows 10 available at present.

Does this mean my machine is becoming obsolete in just a couple of years from purchase?
