Help!!! Series of Problems

Q: Help!!! Series of Problems

This is my first laptop and I'm having trouble. Okay, first off i got my laptop connected to my router and it worked fine for about 2 months. Then, when i take it over my mom's house and try to use her router to connect to the Internet, but it doesn't work. So, i come back home thinking i can get back on the Internet, but i can't.

Please help me.

Things gone wrong:
1. wireless connection wizard says i can't create a wireless connection
2. when i click view all available wireless networks it says none are available in range when i know there are
3. in the network setup wizard it says my wireless connection hardware is not connected
4. message will pop up saying 1 or more wireless networks detected and the same thing happens in 2
Help would be greatly appreciated

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there,

My Function Key seems to be on all the time. I have had some problems with it in the past,
but I could easily fix it by going to System setting > Keyboard > turn the standard F1-F12 mode back on.
Only the last few weeks, that solution doesn't work anymore. I recently updated to Windows 10 and I was hoping that the update would fix the problem, but it didn't. I tried all the other options like pressing the Fn key for 10seconds and stuff like that, but all my efforts were in vain.
So are there other solutions to this problem? Did you experience the same and how did you fix it?

I really appreciate any help you can provide,
Yenian.

P.s.
English is not my mother tongue; please excuse any errors on my part.

It sounds like you are missing some drivers. Check in your device manager for any devices that may be installed improperly (start menu > run > devmgmt.msc). You will be looking for devices with a red 'X' or a yellow '!'

You could potentially already have another virus infection also. An non updated, unprotected PC connected to the internet will be infected in less than 30 minutes even if you don't surf the internet.

A:SharedDocs series of problems

Proton151 said:



Next thing, I could not rename it from "Documents" to "SharedDocs" under its SHARING tab... Instead, when I'd try to type something, the letter S would uncheck (or check afterwards) the option to "Share this folder in the network". Completely nuts, even if I had highlighted the word "Documents", it would keep thinking I was using keyboard shortcuts.Click to expand...

keyboard shortcuts implies the ALT key is down. Can you type normally into
other program windows, eg: Notepad?

Renaming Documents might not work due to any open window on that directory or
any active program running from that or any subdirectory. I've used SharedDocs as a
Share Name before, but that does not change the real directory of course.

To allow add/delete/modify shared files, did you check enable 'allow others to modify documents'?

Hello ybliku2 -
There are several options offered by Microsoft, as it is one of their errors -
 
If you follow the solution provided you should not lose any personal files or functionality. As a precaution you should always back up personal files/data before attempting to troubleshoot follow the steps in the link below to back up data:http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/backupdata.aspx
 
Solution:
1. Open Control Panel > Click 'Uninstall a Program' (Programs and Features)
2. Look for Microsoft .Net Framework in the list and Uninstall them all (restarting the computer each time it tells you to)
3. Once they are all gone, open the Uninstall a Program (Programs and Features) again and click Turn Windows features on or off, on the bar on the left
4. You get another window on and you need to uncheck Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5.1 from the list and click OK
5. Proceed with it complete uninstall and restart the computer (when it tells you to)
6. Open the 'Uninstall a Program' (Programs and Features) again and now look for Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable and uninstall all these as well.
7. Restart the computer and open the Uninstall a Program (Programs and Features) again and click Turn Windows features on or off on the bar on the left and place a check on Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5.1 (it would be a blue square and not a check) and install it again
8. Finally, download & install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package from Microsoft's websitehttp://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=A5C84275-3B97-4AB7-A40D-3802B2AF5FC2&displaylang=en
 
You won't see that error again, provided you have a proper security package (antivirus & firewall) installed.

A:Series of problems associated with PSU or Mobo?

any type of short is potentially dangerous to all/any parts hooked up.
The only type of solution in your case is to start small- and add components one by one, ensuring first that you have a good PSU (tested with tools) and also checking that there is no short.

Also test your ram with memtest 86+ booted from a floppy or CD

It's a common problem for Vaio's... Power supply is not able to "feed" all the USB ports and they become locked by the system. Try the following:

- Shut it down completely.
- Unplug everything.
- Remove the battery for 10-15 seconds.
- Plug everything back
- Start it!

I'm sure it will work ;-)

So my problems first started with the my Siemens laptop staying at the windows logo loading page, with the scrolling blue bar indicating its loading, so i tried starting up in all types of safe mode and also system restoring to a number of dates but was left with the same problem.
So i did some reading and found that maybe I should reinstall windows XP whilst retaining all other saved files, and so i tried this, all seemed to be going well until it was completely installed and now my laptop wont stop rebooting and i cant stop it as it wont let me access any safe mode option screens. What do you think my problem is and how do you think i should fix it?
Should i just buy a new laptop? its a few years old and has been well used.

I'll try to keep this brief since the full version would be way too long but strange things have been going on with my computer lately First some background Computer Hewlett Packard Pavilion Elite HPE- y or years old now a home system Original Operating System Windows Home Premium Upgraded to Windows and then and as of last Fall Windows via the automatically downloaded upgrade It had some trouble upgrading to Windows but eventually what of might them? causing A series problems - be recent succeeded and has been working A series of recent problems - what might be causing them? fine Here is the quick version of the events I can remember from the last couple of A series of recent problems - what might be causing them? weeks To get all-in-one wireless printer scanner to work which had been working before -- a HP B a-m I think I followed HP's suggestion to switch to private network I ended up having to reinstall printer driver A series of recent problems - what might be causing them? but the installation failed as well as it's attempt to roll back the installation On every startup the system tries to complete the installation of the printer but cannot due to missing files Every attempt to install including using HP's special installation process failed the same way Windows Update did not seem to be working Would always fail on the same update whether done automatically or manually Has seemed to work since Tried System Restore but could not get back far enough to get everything working properly again System File Checker sfc reported no problems chkdsk reported no problems chkdsk R reported no problems but I was suspicious of it since it started up saying it was complete and took a very short time to test a TB drive I wanted to backup my files and do a clean install but the system no longer recognized USB external drives or USB memory sticks Device Manager shows USB drive under Other devices and marked with a problem quot The drivers for this device are not installed Code quot Updating the drivers in Device Manager seems to work but the drives are still not recognized by the system Downloaded a Windows Pro iso to attempt a repair and tried to mount it Mounting failed for some obscure reason Burned the iso file to a DVD to try the repair All seemed to be going well until hours later I get a rather unhelpful message saying quot Something happened quot and that Windows could not be installed Maybe because I forgot to turn off anti-virus Just this morning I noticed the Windows key no longer brings up the start menu when I press it nor does left clicking on its icon in the taskbar work Combinations such as Windows-R still work as does right-clicking the icon Summary The computer basically works the programs I run still run I can connect to the internet etc But I can't print or access external storage It seems a hardware problem would bring more catastrophic difficulties so I suspect a software problem but I can't find what needs fixing and the system itself seems to be preventing me from starting clean without losing everything Yes I got lazy with backups I haven't tried everything I've learned on this forum yet like dism online cleanup-image restorehealth and I'm not at that computer right now and can't give you the details on everything that's been happening but finding this forum is the one good thing that has happened from all this Can anybody see a pattern to these things Does it seem to be software Hardware A virus A delayed side-effect from multiple upgrades A progressive disease in an elderly computer I'd be grateful for any suggestions you can make

I have looked through the web searching for solutions for my horrible graphic card driver for quite a while now. The problems with it is when I start up my PC, my screen will turn black and then function. But it will keep again and again until my computer enters BSOD . Some suggested that you turn up the amount of electricity going to your graphic card, back date it, and much more too. I tried quite a few pf them already but sadly I couldn't do it or it just doesn't work. Currently, my Nvidia's version is 8.17.11.9646. I would like a solution that's really simple but at the same time able to solve this problem. Thanks!

Your employer is going to let you return their supplied laptop for a refund or replacement from another brand for a unit that I am guessing you have used for more than half a year? o.0 On topic, Do you have any issues with the laptop itself when it is undocked?  From the sounds of it all problems appear to be docking related, so assuming the dock connector/port is free of all detrius that might cause issues, would suggest using the warranty to replace the dock as that certainly sounds to be the focal point of all your issues.

Hi out there!

Just wanted to inform you about an enoying but reproduceable BUG:

Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B Series:

You have to disable the Intel-Management-Interface in Device-Manager otherwise the Notebook won't shutdown completely / Standbymode wont work.

Issue (Bios V1.4 - Intel ME 11.00.1166):

Work longer than 30min. Then try to shut-down. Screen goes blank - but LEDs on the front stay on, fan stays on until battery is completely empty. Or try to go to standby-mode. Same as shutdown.

Just disable Intel ME in Windows Device-Manager an you fine.

Waiting for any news from Toshiba - i m a reseller, so the same problem exists on >10 notebooks here.

Regards, Bernhard

Playing League of Legends or Diablo 3 on Windows 8 i started to have this kind of bugs:

I tryed to update using the Windows Update driver : "Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. driver update for ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 Series (Engineering Sample - WDDM v1.1)"

I tried update the latest driver on the AMD website while using compatible mode with Windows 7.

I tried using the AMD Driver Downloader but couldn't accept W8 as an OS.

So the problem still maintains... since AMD is not supporting 4k series and lower is there anything i can do before changing back to W7 ?

SeaTools for Windows | Seagate
and a surface test with this Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition. see my pic.

Other things to do are these

download from bleeping computer ? delete any rubbishthese find.

Further on you might even have to do this

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/105647-ram-test-memtest86.htmlthis one you will need to make a bootable disk set theBIOS to optical (or USB if preferred) boot the machine and let it run for at LEAST 8passes unless the errors come up straight away. Takes fair timeto complete and some leave it running overnight.

Ifthe errors come up quickly then you can stop it and you will have to test eachstick and maybe in each slot to sort the bad one out.

It would be good to see what the temps are too use this

A:Laptop Problems; Samsung Ultrabook Series 5

This sort of problem is tough to troubleshoot over the internet. It could be quite a few things that could cause the symptoms that you're experiencing. With that said, I'd probably start with updating the discrete GPU drivers. Since you did switch from integrated to discrete, this could be the main cause for the graphic glitches which is probably crashing the system.

Moving forward, I think you should download something like CPU-Z to monitor the CPU load and temperatures during the crashes. It could be that your CPU is overheating and could use some attention.

A:Price v. Performance in 7-Series + 8-Series: Advice Needed

Keep what you got and see what's comming next. I have a 8600GT as a stopgap until something better comes out. There has been talk of a Nvidia 256bit card to fill the gap between the 8600's and 8800's. I can't fit a 8800 in my case, if I could I would just get the 8800GTS 320mb now. If I were you, wait for the game to upgrade instead of upgrading and waiting for the game. Your X1900GT is no slouch either.

I don't have my system currently installed (I had to remove it as it interefered with my Recording Studio audio interface unit) but there are two cables from the front panel module to the sound card. I also do not recall any loose wire.

I would contact Creative support about the problem with the wire and the front I/O assembly.

I only used the headphone output one time with mine, and it worked OK, so mine must be OK.

Hello! Recently I had my motherboard replaced (Intel for AMD) since my last one got fried because of bad electricity. The new one works great. Only problem I have is my video card. When I downloaded and installed a game it said that it can`t be launched because there is no direct 3d device. I checked in dxdiag and under the directx section there is apsolutely no information and under its features it says "not available". I tried to install drivers from CD (my video card is nvidia GTX560Ti) and then update it to latest version of drivers and...still nothing! Please help.
P.S could this be linked to a fact that I can`t update my windows? It gets stuck on "checking for updates" but that is a different issue?

A:ATI Radeon 9550/X1050 series constant problems

Try "undoing" system restore. You should get get back your 2.4ghz processor speed. Since you are running only 512 mbs of ddr ram, you are operating with minimum ram. Try doubling that, it will help and might stop the crashes. Does your "paging file" (virtual memory) have at least 1 or 1.5 gigs? You have to have that. Good Luck.

I have my HP 4050 Laser printer hooked up through a usb to parallel port cable and windows recognizes the printer but that is all it does. In the devices and printers list of all my related devices there lists two "shadow" 4050's that were created as windows discovered the new hardware that do not seem to do anything at all as they are set to be offline and a third "online" printer that will not print any job in the queue. I am sure there is a logical explination for this but i just do not know what it is. If anyone has delt with this before please help

A:HP LaserJet 4050 Series PCL5 Printing problems.

Alpha90, Something tells me that your parallel<>USB device is not passing all the signals that the computer or printer need.
I recommend getting a small parallel network device that you can plug in and connect to your network. They work great and at a non-profit that I volunteer at we have used them lots of times do to funding constraints.

They are pretty cheap and anyone on your network can install the driver for the device and printing works.
D-Link is one that comes to mind.

Hi, that sounds kind of like what I did. I have a dell 2300(very similar to 2400), and I wanted agp. I replaced the mobo, and REUSED(you said they couldn't be) the stock case. It worked fine.

I don't really know, you may have a faulty motherboard, or possibly a bad psu(have you tried the old psu, the psu's that come with cases are usually crap). Or I guess you could have a dead hd.

That really sounds a lot like when my psu died in my gaming rig. It sort of worked, but wouldn't boot.

According to the website, X SDDs reads a little bit faster, but the P series writes a little bit faster. The only other thing is that the P series is around £100 cheaper!

So is the X series worth the extra £100?

A:GTX 200 Series vs ATI 4000 Series...

If you want 8800GT's, the prices have dropped to about $150 average on newegg which is great considering i got mine for $250. Personally, I'm against SLI, but if you're for it and would have to make a purchase now, go with 2 8800GTS g92 as they're averaging about <$200 (MSI's 8800GTS is on newegg for $177) and they provide some performance over the 8800GT. Since the 9800GTX is basically the same performance as the 8800GTS but more expensive, then forget that.

If you can wait a while to make a purchase, I've heard that the newer 9800GTX+ will have higher stock clocks that will deliver better performance with its newer drivers too, and this card comes out in mid-July. It's supposed to be priced around $230 and it's chip is built on 55nm process. This card sounds attractive, but we'll have to wait for solid reviews of the card first.

ATI... I don't like them, so I'm sorry but I can't tell you anything about them.

I'm getting really pissed off for the newer games. Some of them requires an Direct X 10 video cards to run it properly. Do you guys think 7900 SLI can run newer games smoothly such as Lost Planet? On my computer I test my system requirements and it failed for recommendations. It says that it requires Dx 10 cards to play smoothly.

I'm sure you will loose some of the gee wiz graphics not using a DX10 card but so far most game makers have been making games that use either DX9 or DX10. As far as lost planet is concerned here is whats posted on their official forums as supported vid cards.

will the 9 series make the $220 8800gts drop to something like $100 or will it still be $200?
 

A:Will the 9 series cards make the 8 series cards cheaper?

eventually, and then the 10 series will do the same to the 9 series, rinse and repeat. basically as long as its one of the fastest cards the gts will be expensive, when it becomes obsolete (relatively) its price will drop.

from the question i assume you are looking to upgrade, if you want to only spend $100 then i'd say your best bet is an OCed 7600 GT, lotsa bang for your buck, i can run FEAR with pretty high settings with just one of them.
but really, what are you looking for?

I have a Netgear DG834GT wireless router which works fine with my PCs which have G series network adapters. But with my laptop with an N series network adapter the signal disconnected every 20 seconds then reconnected; this was only a problem using it at home – everywhere else it connected well. I solved this by using a G series PCMCIA when at home. So far so good.

Now my wife has been given a work laptop which has the same problem. She can’t use a PCMCIA because the laptop has been set to stop her installing the software. So… should we get an N series router? Is there any reason it wouldn’t let us both work PCMCIA-free? And if we should go ahead, any advice on what specs I should get or avoid?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies.  The answer in all likelihood is no.

If it currently has Windows XP SP2 installed, you need to install the SP3 upgrade before you do a custom scan at Windows Update/Microsoft Update.

A custom scan will probably display over 100 post-SP3 high priority updates.

It depends on what you are referring to, there is not real issues with the R series GPU's in terms of display output. Most of the associated problems people are having involve a few things:

Some of the 4k monitors (The AOC for instance) use a very odd way to refresh which caused the display to flicker on the R9 series GPU's which was resolved in a recent patch.

Some high refresh displays using DP

and some others

However I would not worry, most of the problems if any are fixed via patches and catalyst revisions. If the manufacturer has to update something like the this its normally involves something like with their own software or certain things in environments not working together properly. I would not worry, I have done nothing to my PowerColor R9 290X trio and they all work great.

Hey everyone. I currently have a GTX 580 and I want to upgrade that. I was going to get a GTX 770 but I'm now considering waiting for the GTX 800 series. Is it worth waiting for the 800's and when do you think it will be released?
 

A:GTX 800 series?

Well supposedly it's coming next year, but since crystal balls don't exist who knows exactly when, maybe in Q1 maybe not, maybe way longer,or if they'll be delayed even further, or how good they'll really be, or if they'll have bugs, or how much they'll cost. If anyone really knows at this point they are not likely allowed to disclose details beyond what I'm sure you've searched on Google otherwise they'd lose their job; and even what may be known now may change as changes and delays happen all the time.

In the end, it's up to you, if you need a new or better card now, buy now, if you want to wait there will always be another generation or series in the works, if the wait is confirmed to be short then sometimes waiting a bit is not a big deal, when the wait is longer waiting may not make sense.

A:Two Routers in series

Each of your routers need to be setup individually, and not through each other.
Once setup, plug the one router into the other. You should have no problems.
But your system would be happier with a switch or even a hub.
Are Router A and B the same brand? When each is used alone, do you get the same readings? Do you have VPN? or other security that could be blocking the second router out?

Right, I had been debating with myself whether or not I'm going to get one of these monsters, when I discovered that I'll need to upgrade my power supply. Having asked around a bit, I was told I'd be wanting in upwards of 650W, which sounds like an awful lot. I don't want to have matched the cost of my new graphics card in electricity bills within the year, afterall.

But imagine my suprise when I read in a review that the GTS version (which I was considering) only requires 400W, while the GTX requires 450. Can anyone sort this out for me once and for all? What are the actual power requirements?
 

A:GeForce 8 series

It depends a lot on the amps on the 12V rail.





Appearing at http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/977/2
As far as power requirements go, the GeForce 8800GTS will require a minimum 400 watt power supply (with 12V current rating of 26A). The GeForce 8800GTX will require a minimum 450 watt power supply (with 12V current rating of 30A) and you can double those numbers when you start talking about SLI.Click to expand...

Personally, I'd use at least a 500 or 550 watt power supply for the 8800GTS and GTX, respectively; but you may be able to get away with what the article says. It also depends on hard drives, etc. With graphics monsters like that, too, I'd use only power supplies from a select few vendors, such as Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, SeaSonic, Antec, Enermax, or FSP. That's about all I can think of for now.

First disconnect the scanner and reconnect to ensure proper connection. To wit, a visual inspect is not good enough...
Also, when you reinstalled did you do a complete uninstall first? If not do that. Else, you are really just adding a new layer of paint over the old cracking layer, eh?

Hey all,

I've currently got a second-hand 7950GT which had a voltage inductor break off, meaning I'm going to have to restructure the fans [they will no longer work on the card itself]. This came at a time where I've been overclocking, trying to decrease temperatures, etc.

I'm wondering if, for performance in DX9 games, two 256MB LeadTek 7950GTs in SLi would beat a single 8800GT / 8800GTS / 8800GTX?

I don't have Vista and I don't play DX10 games...yet. For the time being, would paying for a 7950GT at half the price of an 8800GTX and running the two cards in SLi give me a performance advantage?

I could then wait until prices fall on a 8800GTX.

Hi Friends,
More than a week ago i have not been able to use my HP 600B series Desktop with serial number-TRF2310LFZ,Product number-B5G17A\BH5 and system BIOS-CO2_712.ROM v7.12.It displays error message-"No boot disk found or disk failed" on a dark screen.

Please how may I resolve this?

Regards.
 

A:HP 600B series

sounds like the HD failed. You should probably hit the HP website for that machine and get a hard drive diagnostic test......but it sounds like that one is cooked.

I have been getting constant blue screens with different messages every time ranging from irql is not less or equal to page in non paged area to just no message at all.
This usually happens within 2 minutes of booting up the computer.
The last time this happened I had just installed a new keyboard driver and uninstalling it fixed it.
This time it came out of nowhere and I cannot solve the problem.
please help.

I have an hp p6557c with an AMD Athlon II X2 220 processor 2.81 GHz
also I could not attach the perfmon file because it could not find the filepath.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000000, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000000, bitfield :
bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: fffff80002c8e8b6, address which referenced memory
