Preferred Solution: wifi unable to connect (Moved from Windows 7 forum)

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: wifi unable to connect (Moved from Windows 7 forum)

the pcie family controller is the wired network, not the wifi. you need to download the wofi drivers, install them and you should be good. the easiest way to do this is to hook up to the router with a cable, then download it. there are four available on the download page that said wifi, try them all to see which one works. i found them here:

I really need help since I'm not computer savy. Yesterday, I stupidly decided to disconnect my modem and router because all the wires were a mess!! Well, now I'm not sure if I reconnected correctly, but I guess I did since I can get online but have no wifi. My router password is working, however, when I entered all the wireless/security stuff on the Linksys site it just keeps bringing back to the basic set up page . I hsve no idea what is wrong. Any ideas? My router is a Linksys N300.

Thanks so much! I spent about 8 hours yesterday trying to fix this. Losing my mind!

A:Router won't connect, no wifi (moved from Windows 8 forum)

Might help to give us the actual model number of your Linksys router. The N300 refers to a type, not a model number. Wouldn't hurt to tell us the brand and model number of the modem.

Please tell us exactly how you have the computer, router and modem wired to each other, by referring to how the ports are named and labeled.

When you say, "I can get online but have no wifi", do you mean you your computer can get to the Internet only with a wired connection?

When you say the, "Linksys site", do you mean the web based administration pages on your Linksys router?

When you were changing the wireless and security settings, did you need to click a button the settings pages to actually save the settings.

Does your router show up in the list available WiFi connections on the Windows network connection list?

The last advice from you was to follow the HJT log 5 Step Process; I did follow the steps, here are the results:

1. I spent quite a considerable time in the first step as to read rather long instructions there. I downloaded and installed Spywareblaster, spywareguard, IE_spyad, enoughisenough (the last two are needed for securing IE).

2. I followed the second step of performing online scan, but at the end, when the scanner informs me that my PC is infected with 6 spywares, I couldn't establish connection (as the scan process took ages to finish, and I lost internet connection, as this is my problem: can't stay idle for a long time for the connection can be gone). As a result, I couldn't save the report.
I tried booting in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING, this time it can't even connect to this website or
After shutting down for 30 minutes, I tried logging in again on pandasecurity for online scanning, I was in, but it took such a very long time to perform the scanning (1 hour scanning, still go through 'Scanning processes in memory...') So I stopped trying then.

3. Step 3 is just fine.

4. I already updated my Windows with any updates available from microsoft (except for SP2, as I read, that you need a disinfected PC before installing the SP2)

5. I did the scanning with dss, and here is the log.

Hope that you could do something to work this my PC starts behaving like the previous condition (start leading to ... .net....and so on; after a reboot, everything is ok, then after 10 minutes online, it starts losing connection)

Hello, I'm having some wifi issues. In the past few weeks I've only been able to use the internet on my laptop when connected via ethernet, despite having used the same wireless, router, laptop, etc perfectly fine for years!
When I first start up my laptop, I can see the list of my available connections. I press connect for my usual home router and then it will say "Windows was unable to connect to blahblahblah". And then the list will have a red cross and claim no connections are available. 
If I press troubleshoot problem, Windows Network Diagnostics says to "investigate router or access point issues", which involves turning the device off (done this several times). When I select "check to see if problem is fixed", it thinks for a bit then says "Windows cannot resolve your wireless connectivity issue".
Please can you help?  

A:Windows unable to connect to Wifi

Welcome to BC. !
Have you Reset the router ?....this usually involves inserting the end of a paperclip into a tiny hole located on the router the name of the router and it will show you where that hole is.
The word Reset should be written directly above/beside the hole.
To do this, press and hold the Reset button for 10 seconds. NOTE: Resetting your router to its default factory settings will also reset your router's password. The router's default password is “admin” as for the username, just leave the field blank.

A while ago, after accidentally opening the Store app, Windows forced me to restart to install Windows 8.1, which I was unable to weeks before because of driver issues. I didn't need Windows 8.1 yet, so I didn't download it before then.

However, during the installation, it failed (again) due to either my antivirus or the aforementioned driver issues. Upon logging back in, my computer was unable to find any WiFi networks. Seeing as I live in the middle of a densely populated city, this isn't possible. Plugging in an ethernet cord still works, so no issues with that adapter or my home internet. I checked all the drivers for my WiFi adapter, and my Ethernet adapter, and both are up to date and display as working properly. Restarting several times didn't seem to fix this issue, and using system restore didn't seem to work either. I used the Troubleshooting tool, and that didn't give my any helpful advice or answers, so I got nothing.

What can I do to fix this issue?

For reference, I have a Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter, Driver Version, and a Qualcomm Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller, Driver Version

However, out of the blue my laptop stopped connecting to the wifi at location A and B, and still connects fine at location C. Other laptops and phones still connect fine to the wifi at location A and B, there's been no change in the software on my laptop since before the problem and I've run a system restore too to back when it was working, with no luck. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the adapter driver, also cleared my saved network locations and tried to connect again. Any other suggestions?

I have a HP Notebook 15. I restarted my laptop this morning and when it came back on, all options for connecting to the internet via WiFi were gone. I am able to connect to the internet via ethernet cable, and everything works this way.There are no options whatsoever to connect to WiFi or reset the connection or anything, however the WiFi itself is working because other devices in the house are connected to it. I followed a HP technical support online page, which provided step-by-step instructions of various ways to reconnect to WiFi but nothing worked. I tried restarting the computer, updating the driver software, making sure it wasn't in airplane mode, and troubleshooting. Nothing worked. What should I try next?

So what would you advise as the best way to increase the RAM to 16GB - start afresh with 4x4GB (to use all the slots) or buy 2x8GB, only using 2 slots.

Your advice is most welcome. Many thanks.

It is a temp file cleaner. You can use it OR use something like Ccleaner [which is what I use]
As for how often to run, that depends on how much you use the system AND how much time you spend online. Once a week should be fine however if you are online a LOT, run it more often.

I was running backup4all but it was idle when I left my pc for an hour or so. When I came back the following was on my screen
"vscsrv2008x64.exe has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program & notify you if a solution is available."
I did a search for it on google & it seems to be related to backup programs but i cant determine if it is serious.
Any help appreciated.

A:What is vscsrv2008x64.exe (moved from Windows 8 forum)

The file is related to the back up program you mentioned. The program is not free. Did you purchase it or download the free trial? If the latter then it's possible the trial has expired and you have to decide if you want to purchase it or uninstall it.

If you purchased it, perhaps some security software is interfering.

Have you ever run it successfully?

What security software are you running?

I use FB and yahoo email. I do play slots/bingo online...can that increase the usage to this high extremes.

I am not tech savy..know enough to use it!

A:bandwidth usage (Moved from Windows 7 forum)

I'm in UK

how many devices do you have connected
you should be able to log into your broadband account and see you usage - usually listed daily (although a few days behind)

what do you do with the Roku?

Slots and Bingo online will be using bandwidth , as will most things you do online, just how much will depend on what you use.
50GB is quite a lot

think about all the things you use
there are quite a few online broadband calculators to work out your usage

I use them a lot to check peoples usage , and if they need unlimited or can use a 10,20,40GB service which are the common amounts in UK

Hello all,

I'm having the error: DNS look-up failed. However, it appears my particular error is more difficult to solve as I've tried a lot of things.
- I moved into this building and can only access google/facebook/watch some youtube videos. ALL other sites give me the DNS-error. The other pc connected to this router has no issues(nor my smartphone).
- I've done:
1) CMD->flushdns
2) change the wireless adapter ipv4 properties (tried all open DNS servers)
3) Reset router
4) Troubleshoot the problem (gives: 1. There is a problem with the wireless adapter or access point 2.Wi-fi doesn't have a valid ip).
5) Turn of firewall
Included is the ipconfig/all. The router is a Hitron-3CC0 and my laptop (win8.1) has a Qualcomm Atheros adapter with up-to-date drivers.
Would just buying a ethernet cable solve the issue 100%?
Thanks in advance.

A:Firefox Sync Bookmarks? (Moved from Windows 10 forum)

The purpose of the Firefox sync feature is to allow another device (PC - Phone - etc) that has Firefox installed the ability to sync the bookmarks, history etc to itself. For example. I have a Desktop PC, A laptop PC and a Android Smart Phone. Each of these devices have FireFox installed. Each of the devices are sync'd together. So if I save a bookmark on my PC, I can then use Firefox on my Smart phone and the bookmark will appear there and can be used by FireFox.

Its not really a backup. It just makes what ever your syncing available on all devices that use FireFox.

You wouldn't happen to know the make/model of the Motherboard?

If not, you can check the FCC ID number, there's a database (whose location eludes me at the moment. It's early) that you can run it against to find out what it is.

I use a little program call AFM. It holds profiles for me. Anyway, the projects are supposed to be saved as .txt files. But when I save them they do not have that extension, in the Folder window under Type they just show as "File".
I can rename the files, by just adding the extension .txt they turn into the right kind of file for me to use but it is a pain in the rear end and if I forget to change them then everything I have put into a project is lost because the right extension isn't there. (the txt files have these little seperators that turns the info into information in the program, you probably already know that but I didn't)

In the Save dialogue box it shows the "save as type" as txt.

Make sure you have all of the latest Microsoft Office Updates installed on the pc.

However, there are limitations to Excel 2010. According Microsoft website:

Click here to show information on how to check Excel 2010 limits.
The error can occur if you exceed certain Excel 2010 limits, such as running too many calculations in the workbook. Some of these limits are as follows:

The maximum worksheet size limit is 1,048,576 rows by 16,384 columns.
The total number of characters that a cell can contain is 32,767 characters.
The maximum selected range in a calculation is 2,048.

I have an some IP cameras connected to a router via RJ45 Ethernet cable. The router is NOT connected to the internet.

The Ethernet connection works perfectly on my windows 7 system, but is not recognized on the windows 8.1 system.
Any idea on why this happens on Windows 8.1 and how to correct it?

I originally had IE as my browser but it started to give me problems so I switched to Mozilla Foxfire as my primary browser. I kept IE on my desktop as a backup browser. Now, when I click on IE, I get a blank page. I tried to reload it via the Microsoft website but it will not reload. What gives? Thanks for any reply.

A:Solved: Internet Explorer (Moved from Windows 7 forum)

Try starting IE from the list in Program Files. Sometimes desktop shortcuts get corrupted so I'm trying to rule out that possibility.

What version of IE? What page is set as your home page in IE?

Forgive me if this should go in Hardware rather than Win My motherboard cpu fried and replaced it with new ones Change the SATA config to RAID Transferring the Windows (moved from 7 Raid forum) Array and was able to recreate the array on the new motherboard I didn t actually have to actually create it it just recognized it Transferring Raid Array (moved from the Windows 7 forum) once I changed the SATA config to RAID and my volume label name was there was using used the Intel Chipset Only thing now is that obviously the OS won t boot up BSOD on Boot I m able to get on Startup Repair but all the options on there none of them are helping me get into Windows Restore Point and Automatic Repair I m pretty sure this is something beyond that obviously but was wondering if anyone can explain to me what I m missing or what s going on And what can I do to fix it if possible If that fails I m okay with reinstalling windows but I ll need help in transferring over my files if thats possible - I m assuming so because it recognizes the volume TIA nbsp

A:Transferring Raid Array (moved from the Windows 7 forum)

Best way is to install another drive. Do not make this part of the raid array. Install windows on the single drive however do not activate it. Once windows is installed, and functioning on the raid controller, make an image of the single drive. Now access, copy, whatever you want from the raid array. Once you are all finished, you can remove the single drive. Boot with the rescue disk for whatever imaging program you used. Restore the image to the array and you are done. Copy back whatever data files, etc you copied above. When you are all done [and everything is working] go ahead and activate windows.

The above is one of the many reasons why I do not like onboard raid. IMO if you want raid, then buy a real raid card.

I use and recommend acronis true image for the above task however there are a few free programs that will do this also. The problem might be the raid array. I do not know if the free version of macrium will recognize a raid array.

I just bought a new HP Pavilion preloaded with Windows -bit So far I am very unimpressed with Win I just tried to install MS Office from my original DVD I have the product key I typed it in and MS accepted it The installation seemed to proceed although it also seemed to take a long time Eventually it said I needed to reboot for the installation to complete So I selected that and the machine started to restart but never fully restarted I sat here and watched the word restarting and the little wheel of dots going in circles for nearly minutes By the end of that time the hard drive light on the unit was not blinking much at all Maybe one quick blink every - seconds or so So I powered down and from that point on nothing seems to be working right at all Eventually I just uninstalled MS Office it did appear on the list of installed programs At that point there were none of the usual MS Office shortcuts on my desktop that I m used to seeing Now the system seems to be behaving somewhat erratically but it does work Was the problem that MS Office just won t work in Win at all Or has something else gone wrong nbsp

A:Solved: Will MS Office 2010 run under Win 8.1 64 bit? (moved from Windows 8 forum)

I just bought a new HP Pavilion preloaded with Win 8.1 64-bit. I'm singularly unimpressed so far!

I have a netgear wifi router. When I first turned on the machine, it found the network and i connected to wifi properly. I did a bunch of stuff with no problems related to wifi that I could see.

I then tried to install MS Office 2010 from my original DVD. I have the product key and MS accepted it and did the installation. But it said I needed to reboot to finish that and the reboot never rebooted! After watching the "no-progress" wheel whirl and turn for nearly 5 minutes, I powered down. When I then manually restarted, that didn't work until I did it twice. Finally, I got back up and running and since then no wifi! I can connect using the ethernet cable but why would all that I've done render the wifi network undetectable by the computer? The lights on the router indicate it's working right, so what's wrong?

MS Word 2007 does not start normally.
The MS Word 2007 program, to be run at all shows User Account Control Box. I click Yes.
Then everything on the screen sort of gets foggy.
Then I get the message "There was a problem sending the command to the program."

If I click Enter a few times I can get MS Word to start. Sometimes not.

I have reinstalled Word 2007 which does not help.

I have run Office Diagnostics which did not find any problems.

Need help on this one.

Thank you in advance.

I am having a problem getting into my windows program. The problem is that the computer says that there are several files missing from the SYSTEM INI. So, okay. I attempt to use DOS to undelete these missing files by going into the windows directory and giving the undelete command. I believe everything would be fine except the computer tells me that all files are currently in "lock /." I reboot the computer and attempt to give the unlock command but repeatedly am faced with the message, "lock unsuccessful." My question is...WHAT DO I DO?!?
