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.)

Right, so before this DSL was rarely stable, it was incredibly slow. I solved the problem by directly connecting the modem (a Westell 6100) to the phone jack, as from what I've seen, the three way splitter that was used killed the connection speed. Now the results from doing this was the internet speed being increased sevenfold. The connection I have is from Verizon, not really too sure on the connection, but if it helps, the top speed I have now is about 70 kb/s. I've taken the line quality test from DSLReports, but from what it says, everything is apparently good. Another thing I've noticed too is that the Internet and Ethernet lights on both the router (A Linksys WRT300N) and the modem are constantly flashing. If anyone could help me with this, I'd be grateful, and the link to the test is here. http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2537166

I have a new laptop with a built in 802.11G adapter. It connects to my router, but then disconnects periodically, sometimes it reconnects right away, other times I have to turn the wireless adapter off and back on before it reconnects. Any advice would be helpful. Is it possible it has something to do with SP2 as this is the first time I've ever used it and this is the first time I'm having problems.
 

A:Wireless disconnects constantly.

SP2 and the wireless adapters built in connection utility on alot of models do not play nice so usually you have to pick one or the other to use. As well you will probably want to check the channel your on as something else may be causing interferance. Have you tried your laptop in other wirelesas areas? You may want to do that to have piece of mind that your card and configuration of your laptop is working properly.

Heres my problem, it has persisted for the past 3-4 months or so.

Randomly, but more frequently when i am gaming (WoW, Counter strike, Ventrilo, Warcraft III), my cable completely disconnects my internet and telephone (Optimum online & Voice)

The modem itself stays on but the lights for DS, US, and Online go out for 30 secs to a minute then reconnects and my internet is fine for the next 30 minutes or so until the same thing happens again.

I have switched out modems since it happened, no change.
I have switched out routers (upgraded from a WRT54GS to a WRT310N), no change.


I have seen you guys do some remarkable stuff with Hijackthis and such, if you could help me now with this problem it would relieve a lot of grief.

Thanks for your time

When on Windows 7 (release 7100, 64 bit), the wireless internet disconnects after/during downloading a file, game downloads updates, or even when playing an online game. The internet still appears to be connected to my network however a message mentions "limited access". If I disconnect from the network, I am unable to reconnect to the network (error comes up).

This issue does not occur when using Ubuntu (dual boot) or on other computers connected to the internet (using Win XP/Vista). And does not occur when directly connected to the internet.

I also have noticed somewhat of an issue that may be relating to this problem. My network adapter is Belkin Wireless G Desktop Card F5D7000. However, Windows 7 recognizes the network card as "Dell TrueMobile 1300 WLAN Mini-PCI Card"

Thanks for any help~

A:Wireless Constantly Disconnects

I've got the same exact problem. I have a Rosewill RNX-N2X wireless adapter. My computer does the same thing - the wireless connection comes up with limited access and it won't connect again.

Along with this though, when this happens, my CPU starts getting eaten up to almost 90% usage by something. When I try to shut down, it just locks at the shutting down screen, and I have to hold in the button.

The connection works most of the time when just surfing the web, but when making my account for this site it decided to disconnect. I've tried changing the wireless security, channel, drivers, etc... When I try a wired connection, the connection stays fine under heavy load, so it must be something with wireless drivers or something..Please help!

Edit: Also, my router is a D-Link DIR-655, but I don't think it's the problem. A Windows 7 laptop does not have any problems with this using the same router.

Edit 2: Nevermind, wireless disconnects even when surfing web after about 3-4 minutes, but downloads stop it instantly.

I've had Verizon DSL for a while now, and I'll be honest, its the worst service we have ever gotten.
It goes down consistently, and by the time i call Verizon Tech Support, internet seems to stabilize and they say there is nothing wrong with my internet.
I did a line test at dslreports and got the following result.
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2552521

Looks just fine, but what explains the constant disconnections?
Oh, their 24/7 Tech Support lines seemed to have been closed for a long time now as well. Also, when i try calling corporate, they put my on hold then hang up.

Sooo, what do you guys think?

Hi all, I recently bought my first laptop (HP Streambook) and it's fine except for it constantly disconnecting from my wifi?
It only does this in my room (note that every other device I own can still pick up and keep a consistent connection in here), and when it picks up the connection, it only has 2-3 bars. It'll then go to 5 bars for about 30 secs, then disconnect completely. When I attempt to reconnect it may not work at all, or appear there with 2-3 bars again. I have reset the network card more times than I care to mention and any amount of troubleshooting won't help. I'm at my wit's end, any ideas?

A:WiFi constantly disconnects?

Welcome to the forum!

Honestly, not the top of the line when it comes to notebooks/laptops. Can't rule out that it simply has a weak wifi adapter and antenna. What adapter does it have? May need to update the drivers. How far are you from the router and are there walls in between?

Also be sure the adapter is not allowed to sleep and power saving mode is not enabled.

Hi,

I have a network with up to a dozen computers at any one time.
All have static ips
Most are wired.

The prob is between 2 wireless computers.
If I run both comps with windows xp, all is fine.
But 1 of the pcs is often booted from a live (Puppy) Linux cd.
When I boot using Linux, both of these pcs start dis/reconnecting to the network, every few minutes.
The nics both have different macs, & they are both assigned their own static ips correctly.
Another wireless pc on the network is not affected.

Any ideas why the disconnects & how to solve this prob?

PS. I am using a Netgear 824 router.

Thanks for any replies

As the topic title says, my Linksys 10/100 LNE100TX LAN (On this machine) Constantly connects and disconnects about every 5-10 seconds. My other machines on my network are fine.

I've tried moving the card into different PCI slots;
Changing the RJ45;
Installing drivers on the CD provided;
Installing drivers from the internet;
Uninstalling the card completely and installing as above;

Any ideas?
Any other specs you may require, just ask and i'll post them.

Windows XP (No service Packs as i just formatted. It had the same problems with SP1 and SP2 installed too)

Many thanks.

I've never had this issue before with my Linksys Wireless-G PCI adapter model WMP54G. Its not much of a big problem but it is annoying! Connection is great at Excellent but sometimes it just disconnects and then automatically re-connects. It doesn't matter if I'm in the middle of loading a webpage or using the connection in any way either. I've checked for radio frequency interference and there is none in its area. The router is an Actiontec. Also whats frustrating is the connection speed even with an Excellent connection. It tops out at 54Mbps but sometimes drops to 12Mbps or 18Mbps even when there isn't heavy connection activity and the connection runs very slow. Google and web searches have not been successful. Any ideas?

A:[SOLVED] Wireless Adapter constantly disconnects.

How far away is the access point? What happens if you move directly in front of it? Do the problems still occur?
Are there any walls / Metal objects / fridges (large electrical components etc) between you and the access point?
You can try to swivel the Access Point aerial so it is horizontal instead of vertical or vertical instead of horizontal.

A:Wireless internet disconnects and reconnects constantly

when your internet drops out, does the router still have an internet connection, i.e. is the router still getting an IP address from your ISP? since you said that the desktop is hard-wired into the router and doesn't experience this same problem, i'm assuming this is the case. it seems as though the problem lies more in the wireless connection and not the router or your ISP.

you may need to get a wireless expander because that distance seems fairly long.

a new network card or a wireless USB may help matters, but it still seems like a long distance.

We have a problem with the connection to our server. The server disconnects randomly from minutes to hours all day. I am at a remote location and connect via logmein to a local pc at the servers physical location to remotely control and connect to the server. A month or so ago the connection would drop every few minutes. The staff at that location replaced the switch and had the ISP tech check out the router. No problems were found. I think it is a problem with the server itself but don't know what it could be. Typically I can go through the login process and reconnect. I'm sorry I can't be more specific about the equipment since it is 40 miles away. Any suggestions on troubleshooting? Remotely?
Clearly I'm not a network guy.
Thanks for any help or direction

I have had a problem for the past couple days. I have looked over many places on the internet and have not found a solution.

The problem is my computer ASUS ul 30-a up until a few days ago was running fine on wireless until a couple of days ago when the wireless constantly was cutting out every minute or so and reconecting 10-15 seconds later. I have reformatted my computer and installed multiple new driver from the Asus website. When wired into the router the internet works perfectly. But wireless even directly next to it does not work. Their are 2 other laptops in the house neither which have had any problem dropping connections. Another thing I fine odd is that my computer is perfectly fine on my wireless at school. I have tried resetting the router and multiple router setting but still nothing. Renew release Ip, Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So i have 2 computers in my network and when they are both on i'm getting disconnects and they last for like 10secs and then it works fine for 5-10 mins and then disconnects again.
 

A:Getting disconnects when 2 computers in same network

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I've been trying to use my IPv6 as default over IPv4. After manually entering in the IP address into the adapter under IPv6 protocol, it would connect for 5 minutes before disconnecting itself. I would have to constantly redo just to keep the connection up. How can I use my IPv6 without constantly disconnecting, is there something I'm doing wrong?

Hi all,

I downloaded the latest .NET Framework update from Microsoft (.NET Framework 3.5 SP1). Now, I decided that rather than downloading the 231MB through the Update site three times, I'd download the full installer, and copy it to the other machines.

The download worked fine, but when I copy the file between my computers, across a wireless network, partway through it disconnects.

Any ideas what would cause this? Thank you in advanced.

I am using Aztech DSL 1000ER broadband modem (no wireless function, the modem is combined with router, has 4 ethernet wire ports). One Windows XP SP3 PC (Desktop) and one Apple laptop is connected to to the modem by ethernet cables.

When only the Win XP PC is connected to the internet, the internet connection is stable and working fine.
When both the Win XP PC and Apple laptop are connected to the internet at the same time, both will experience frequent disconnection. The disconnection last about 5 seconds each time and it will automatically be connected again after 5 seconds. This happens about 6 to 8 times every hour.

I brought my modem (previous same one also having this problem) to the service center and they exchanged a new one for me. The modem that I am using now is a brand new modem. Any help is appreciated.

Hi, I'm bombed by a harmful virus which always slowing down my internet and lots of disconnections. I also redirected to different harmful web pages (some of them are Russian porn sites and dating sites).

I scanned multiple times with Kaspersky Internet Security tools (pro) and Malwarebytes along with Adware Cleaner. They couldn't detect any infections.

Because of this virus I can't use my internet properly. Every other computer and phone at my home can connect to internet with high speed and not a single problem ever.

Here is my setup. I have a wired desktop connected to a D-Link DIR-615 wireless router. which in turn is connected to a cable modem. I have a PS3 and a wireless computer that will connect to the network for a period of time (varying from days to hours) but eventually the wireless computers will lose connection to the network and are unable to reconnect unless I power cycle the modem. The utility included with my wireless card detects the signal from the router loud and clear, but when attempting to assign an IP address the system fails and assigns the 169.254.X.X IP address. What the hell is going on?
 

A:Wireless Computers Dropping Constantly

Some things you can try here, listed in the order you should try them.
For wireless connections, remove all the stored wireless profiles and search for networks. You'll have to enter the encryption key again, which is sometimes the issue for connection problems.
For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
For wireless connections, try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

Whenever I'm away from my laptop (Dell, Windows XP) for more than a few minutes, it disconnects from the internet, and I have to re-boot to re-connect. This is happening with my current wireless home network, but it used to happen when I had a wired connection. The internet signal strength is excellent.

Is there a setting I need to change, or is there just something wrong with my computer? Is it fixable or do I just need a new one? (I've already tried turning off the various hibernate features.)

A:Laptop Disconnects From Internet

bjbmd, some suggestions:

- since both wired and wireless had a common denominator (loss of wireless), have you checked your isp?
- how much memory do you have? Make sure virtual memory is set efficiently
- run CleanDisk from System Accessories to clear out cache
- defragment your the os drive in safe mode
- make sure you have the latest drivers for your wireless card (check manufacturer's website to update)
- make sure you have the latest firmware for your wireless router (also check manufacturer's website)
- check your cables to ensure they are in good shape
- run a good spyware scan (spybot, ad-aware, or avg-antispyware)

Okay, my school issued laptops to half of the students and I got one. The internet works perfectly fine at school. At home I set up my connection and can successfully connect to the internet. My router is a Linksys WRT54G v5 with the latest firmware and no 2.4ghz phones in my house. Still, I disconnect every 15 minutes or so and it's really annoying because I can't download anything big, play online games, or comfortably use instant messaging because of this. Can any of you help me?

If you need any more information let me know. Thanks for your help.

How are you connecting at school (ethernet or wireless)? At home?

If wireless at home, have you tried ethernet? Is there another network in range on the same or close channel as yours?

Are any other computers connected to the router at home? If so, how? And do they suffer the same disconnects?

Are you by chance using "homegroup" and are the other machines older OS'es?

win 7 uses IPv6 in homegroup. That really is only meant to be used with win 7 machine and not older machines or routers. they are meant to run workgroup and use IPv4.

Hi there I have two laptops sitting next to each other One of them works fine but the second one although it connects at first disconnects after a few site searches Both computers are connected through their WN B network adapters The laptops IP addresses set on automatic and their names are different and the problem only happens on that particular computer The strange thing is that the computer gets connected without a problem when mine is not connected and it has no problem connecting through Ethernet The computer which is a VAIO VGN-FS W and has a Turkish XP on it is Disconnects Netgear from Laptop WNR834B updated both on the Microsoft side and the VAIO side Mine a VAIO VGN-AR G works without a glitch I even tried switching the network adapters and I still got the same problem Questions I have in mind Could this happen because the DSL connection kbps is too slow and my computer works better and sucks up the resources and causes the other to disconnect Could this happen because the computer has a Turkish XP OS and therefore does not get the necessary updates to work side by side with mine Should we think of changing its OS to the US version Could this happen because there is some setting on the router that needs to be changed What else should I look for I Laptop Disconnects from Netgear WNR834B appreciate your help nbsp

Hi, I have Lenovo B570 with windows7 installed. To avoid internet disconnection problem, I changed settings in Control Panel as follows:
In Power Options, then in advance settings I selected options "Do Nothing" When laptop lid closes...
It resolves my problem partially... After closing the lid if system does not get lock then internet connection works fine but if system goes to lock state (this happens when lid closed time is more than 20 mins) then after login, the internet connection is visible as disconnected.
Any suggestions?

Also you can try disabling this:

My laptop is randomly disconnecting from my new router. Sometimes it's every few minutes, sometimes it can be an hour or two in between disconnections. This only seems to effect wireless devices and I notice it most often on my laptop. The router is a Fritz!Box 7490 and is connected to 2degrees Internet. The message in the WLAN event log is :

Wireless LAN device deregistered itself (5 GHz). MAC address: 64:BC:0C:6A:79:62

The weird thing is that if I disconnect from wifi and reconnect it re-establishes the connection near instantly. Sometimes it just shows as connected to wifi but not to the internet.

I have tried factory resetting the router (As suggested by 2degrees Internet) and I've tried setting my laptop DNS settings to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. I have also tried to change the wifi channels in case of interference.

Any suggestions or advice is welcome and I'm happy to provide extra info on request. Thank you for your attention.

I would really appreciate any advice anyone could give me, been having this problem for a good while now! I'm pretty sure its a virus/trojan or something...running windows vista, a few months ago something called antimalware doctor was installed onto my laptop, ever since i've been having crashes and my laptop freezes/becomes unresponsive. I've tried to get rid of the problem with antivirus software, but its not detecting anything. Also, computer seems disconnect regularly for about a half an hour, then reconnects, although the wireless connection is still o.k.

If you have McAfee Life Safe (antivirus) on the system, disable it.  That likely will solve the problem - if it does, your best course of action is to uninstall that software and use the built-in Microsoft Defender (it'll automatically turn on once McAfee is gone).

Hey everybody, first post here!

My audio interface (Phonic Firefly 808) loses connection with my laptop (Toshiba Satellite C855-1w8) if i don't use my laptop for 5-20 min while audio is playing. When I'm actually using my laptop the interface has no sync losses.

I've installed the latest drivers and firmware for the Firefly, made sure all the drivers on my Laptop are up to date, disabled my WiFi adapter, webcam and card reader, tried all of my USB ports and the power settings should all be O.K. I even re-installed windows from scratch, with no improvement.

I tested the Firefly on another (old, crappy) laptop with no problems at all.

Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

The Phonic gets good reviews on the gearslutz.com forum, but this is the first I've heard or seen anything about it. Its not on the US music store sites that I've seen.

Drivers can be an issue. Does this have specific Windows 8.1 drivers? There have been issues with some audio devices/drivers that worked in Windows 8 but do not work or work correctly in Windows 8.1. My Roland Octa-Capture is one of many that required Windows 8.1 specific drivers to work properly.

Hello everyone.
I have a problem with the wireless connection of my laptop. It disconnects about every 30 minutes and then it reconnects after a few seconds. This happens when I'm at one my my parent's houses but not at my friends house.
This problem is particularly annoying when I'm in the middle of an online game of Age of Empires III because you get kicked out instantly when you lose the connection for even one second.
I don't know much about modems or routers but if you need more details about them I could look for them.
Also I couldn't find anything on Google or the forums but please send me a link if you find anything.

All help appreciated!

A:Laptop wireless disconnects periodically (Sony VAIO)

Hi Nusaik,

That seems to be interference with nearby wireless networks or electronics. Also, depending on how far your laptop is from their wireless router.

Next time that you stop by at your parents home, ask their permission first if they will let you do a minor change in their router settings, if they won't let you, perhaps another option is a wired connection.

On your next visit, please Install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector.
Click on the 'Show Networks' to display all wireless networks on the xirrus icon on your desktop of if you have one running in a corner. Tap the Printscreen key on your keyboard, open up Paint then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then SAVE it. Upload and attached it here, click on Go Advanced and locate Manage Attachments Tab and attached the file.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 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 need 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 http://www.xirrus.com/cdn/pdf/Xirrus-Wi-Fi-inspectorguide-1-2-1-RevB-6.aspx

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

Hi, I've got a wifi router Edimax BR-6204Wg that is serving several computers in my home. All of them run Linux. The network is WPA-protected, only registered MAC addresses can connect.

All is well until I boot to Windows on ANY computer I've tried (both Dell Latitude). What happens next is that Windows connects to the network, disconnects after a while and all the other computers disconnect from the network as well. The Windows laptop then connects again and as long as there is no other connected computer on the network, stays connected.

I am a rather advanced user but cannot read Ethereal dumps, so I wonder if anyone has had a similar problem? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Hello all,

So, I have a Toshiba Satellite computer that's a couple years old, but runs fine other than the internet.

This problem started happening around a month ago, for a couple days it'll just disconnect and reconnect to the internet randomly ( Every couple minutes or so) But after a couple days, it usually just stops. Recently it started doing it again, and I've searched and searched online and tried literally everything I can find but nothing seems to work. We've updated drivers, tried restore points, changed the driver settings to maximum performance in the power management settings, but to no avail.

We're running on Windows 7, have intel-Centrino Winax adapters. It isn't the router either btw, as we have another laptop that stays connected perfectly fine. Tried toshiba support, but since the warranty is out they wanna charge us, but the tech guy did say something about changing settings, just not sure what settings he was talking abou

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and any more info you need just let me know how to get to it and I'll post. Thanks!

Hi I purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 (5558) series Inspiron WiFi laptop automatically disconnects 5000 in my series laptop in October from the Dell store in Amazon It was shipped with Windows pre-installed I didn t have to upgrade The laptop is generally functioning very well and I don t see any hardware issues The one issue I m facing since the time I bought my laptop is that the WiFi disconnects automatically after a while There s no specific time period at which this happens but it happens nonetheless if I leave it alone for a significant period of time anywhere b w minutes WiFi disconnects automatically in my Inspiron 15 5000 series laptop (5558) to a few hours I mostly leave the laptop on throughout the day Each time the only option I m left with is to restart the laptop which fixes the issue Another thing that I observed whenever this issue happens is that all options regarding WiFi don t work For eg I tried disabling and enabling the WiFi driver I clicked on the disable option multiple time and it doesn t do anything However when I restart the system the driver is disabled and I have to manually enable it for WiFi to connect Other Devices I used to have a Dell XPS before and it used to work fine and my office laptop is a Dell Latitude and it doesn t have this issue either I also connect my phone Samsung S and tablet Nexus to the same network and no issues Details Laptop Dell Inspiron Series OS Windows shipped with laptop in Oct Internet Comcast Mbps Initially it was fine but now this continuous restart now and then is getting on my nerves I ve tried googling for this issue a lot and played around with most settings including setting the power setting to maximum performance so please don t quote that solution Any help here would be appreciated Thanks in advance Thanks Sriraj

Older laptop disconnects from hotel wifi at regular intervals about every 45 seconds?

It is a dell d600. it supports wpa2 but i think there maybe a problem with tkip/aes or something. This is the second time I have stayed at a hotel with it. And it connects but then disconnects after 45 seconds or so, kind of like it is on a timer or something...

I have a newer laptop and it stays connected.

So anything I can do about this problem? Or I need a new wifi card? Thanks

A:Laptop Fan Runs Constantly

A couple of things. You may have spyware/malware that's keeping the processor running at high usage percentages, or you may need to blow the dust out of the machine.

Hi-

Is the laptop freezing then crashing? Or will it resume normal operation after some time?

A:Laptop constantly downloading

Hello and Welcome to Bleeping Computer!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster. NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of hartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer. NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.Security CheckDownload Security Check by screen317 from here.Save it to your Desktop.Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.Run Combofix:You may be asked to install or update the Recovery Console (Win XP Only) if this happens please allow it to do so (you will need to be connected to the internet for this)Before you run Combofix I will need you to turn off any security software you have running, If you do not know how to do this you can find out >here< or >here<Combofix may need to reboot your computer more than once to do its job this is normal.You can download Combofix from one of these links.Link 1Link 2Link 31.

My laptop keeps on crashing, whilst playing on world of warcraft, my laptop just completely switches itself off without warning. As of yet, has only crashed whilst playing wow. This is also not due to overheating, as im using a separate fan unit, after heat issues arose

Using an acer laptop - aspire 5610 - with Xp proffesional, media centre.

Also sometimes, after restarting the laptop, and selecting the screen name, it comes up with my background wallpaper, but no icons, start bar, etc - only way to get rid of this is turning the power button off.

Included a hijackthis log (hope i've done it right)

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Laptop Constantly Crashing

Hi and welcome!

I looked at your HJT log, but as you are aware, only authorized people are allowed to verify information in this log. I personally, did not see anything WRONG with it. Once again, I&#8217;m not qualified on this board to act on HJT logs.

My reason for responding is that I will put my money on your system overheating and powering off! Even though you have the &#8220;plate fans&#8221;, this does not mean that the system will not overheat! I have been through the exact same process a few times with a couple of my laptops. They get hot, overheat and just power off even when having additional cooling underneath them.

Which, in theory would make sense. Your system gets hot because of the amount of pressure the system gets while playing the game. They are more processor and graphic intense than your regular applications. Have you ever tried watching a DVD on your system (if possible) and then seeing if it will shutdown? Maybe trying a game that is of the same intensity on your CPU and GPU?

Also, you have a ton of stuff starting up on your system. What amount of memory do you have installed and what is the memory usage on the system?

If you want someone to analyze your HJT log for you, you will have to put the thread in the &#8220;Malware Removal & Hijack This Log&#8221; area. You can contact a moderator and have them move the thread for you if you like.

Thanks!

Hi guys
Im not really good when it comes to dealing with computer problems
I need some help
I bought a new laptop recently (Qosmio f60 series)
and the specs are

Intel core i5 2.27GHz
6 GM ram
64-bit Operating system
GeForce GT 330M graphic card

Now the problem is that the laptop freezes up when Im either shutting it down or leaving it idle for more than 10 minutes
and sometimes when I force it to restart from freezing up
It is completely fine when Im doing my tasks or even playing high-end games on ultra graphic settings(although the temperature of the laptop gets really high..)

And sometimes when I force it to re-start it will go into a 32 bit system mode(some kinda fail-safe system?)

I have tried to create a system repair disc to solve the problem but it did nothing...
I need help PLEASE!!!
 

A:New laptop freezing constantly

It should still be under warranty. I recommend taking it back to where you bought it and get it fixed for free.

A:Laptop shuts off and on constantly...

Hello Montana,

Stop the computer from automatically restarting on a failure:

Right-click 'My Computer' and click on 'Properties'.
Click the 'Advanced' tab and in the 'Startup and Recovery' section, click on 'Settings'.
In the 'System failure' section, check the boxes 'Write an event to the system log' and 'Send an administrative alert',
but uncheck the box 'Automatically restart'.
This will cause the system to blue screen on critical errors.

When you get a blue screen, copy down what it says, especially any the error code, specific error numbers, faulting files, etc.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Check the Event Viewer:

On restart:
Go to Start => Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" {without the quotes}
Maximize the window that opens.
In the 'Application' and 'System' sections double-click on any Errors at about the time of the failure.

Click the small double-page button. This will copy the Error message to the clipboard from where you can paste it (them) here into a post and/or into Notepad.
Also, click the blue hyperlink which will take you to online Help & Support where you may find some suggested solutions to the problem.

A:Laptop shuts off and on constantly...

My first guess would be it's over heating if it's just shutting down. If your getting a BSOD then it could also be a bad piece of software and hardware.

I recently got a used HP Compaq nx9010 and I just installed Windows xp home on it. It doesnt seem to matter what I'm doing on it, I totally freeze at any (& several) random times. Nothing phases it except shutting it off & restarting. Any clue where to start?

Thanks

P.S. I am at a motel that has wireless internet. I bought a Netgear wireless card for the laptop yesterday but I seem to get kicked off quite quite often. My desktops connection still will still be connected fine but just the laptop will suddenly show no connection. Also sometimes my laptop will show I'm connected at a very fast mbps but show signal strength at very low & it varies how I run then . Any clue on it?

The mousepad on my laptop (which I never use) is almost constantly hot, and on top of that, the fan inside my laptop is constantly running. Is my PC slow? Do I need to get it fixed? What's wrong with it?

A:Laptop Mousepad Constantly Hot

Probably dirty inside.
Can you apply a vacuum to the vent openings - maybe spray a little air ("canned air") in the vent while holding vacuum hose next to openings? Do this with the laptop turned off.

You can run a program like HWmonitor HWMONITOR | Softwares | CPUID which will show the temperatures of the CPU and fan speeds, etc. That might provide some useful diagnostic info.

If you can provide more detail on the make/model of your laptop, I may be able to provide additional info.

A:Laptop constantly dropping out

These DNS settings are fine, but have NOTHING to do with dropping connections. These are only used to find the correct IP address when you open a webpage or send/receive email.

I've had my laptop for about 2 years now and never had any trouble with it, but for the past week it freezes straight as a I log on and won't go back to working again. After running virus scans in safe mode (it usually freezes half way through them) and leaving it off for 24 hours it worked fine again for about 2 hours then the same thing happened again. Tried to run the scans again but nothing happened. A week ago (just before this all started) I connected my new iPhone 5 to the laptop and it froze it then, so I went to system restore back to the date this happened, then it crashed during that, now the thing doesn't even recognise its on charge and won't switch back on at all?

Hello, I have an ASUS laptop (N53Jq, i7, GT425M, 8GB) with Windows 8.1, with update. It's being used like a desktop computer, with the lid closed connected to a monitor through HDMI and with mouse and keyboard. I have the Power4Gear Hybrid driver, to set the high performance mode in my PC, but after awhile it still goes into sleep mode (like 1 or 2 minutes). It's really weird, I checked every setting (on the driver app and control panel) and sleep mode is off everywhere. What could be wrong here?

Thank you for your time.

A:Why is my laptop constantly going into sleep?

I would try ASUS forums as the readership should be dominated by ASUS owners. I have a Toshiba Laptop. The only thing I can guess as a shot in the dark would be if you possibly have Adaptive Brightness enabled? That's the only thing I can thing of that reacts in so short a time.

My laptop has been working fine until earlier today - but now every time I turn it on almost instantly I get a message pop up saying 'windows must now restart because the power service terminated' and turns off in 30 seconds. I can't get onto the laptop long enough to run any scans. Can anyone help me?? Thanks!
