Having trouble reconnecting

Q: Having trouble reconnecting

I have two desktops that I had connected by a wired router. One is Vista system and one is 98SE. I was able to be on the internet with both. The 98SE was having some problems, so I reinstalled the 98SE, and now I can't get the 98 system to connect to the internet.

All the cables are connected, like they were before. The router is showing that two computers are connected, but the 98 is not recoginizing it for some reason.

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.)

First of all, sorry for my bad english.
My pc was working perfectly for about a year now, but these days it started having problems.
In the past few weeks it started disconnecting from the internet with the message: you don't have a valid
ip configuration. (It was working on the other pc connected to the router with lan, and on the notebook connected through wifi)
A reboot of the pc/router did always solve my problem in these situations.
Yesterday, my internet connection started connecting/reconnecting, and I couldn't solve it in any way, not with
a restart, and not with that network repair tool (idk it's name, I have hungarian windows). When it stayed connected for more then 2 seconds I was even able to load google, youtube, other sites,
I tried some solutions, like disabling the energy saver settings, setting it to 10mb half duplex, etc, but nothing worked, my
internet kept connecting/reconnecting.
Today I started my pc and it works perfectly.. Any ideas on how to solve it? I have the newest lan driver.

My mobo is Asrock 960gm-vgs3 fx.
 

A:Network keeps reconnecting

It appears that you manually configured the IP for at least one system.
DON'T do that - - make sure all systems use DHCP

Hey ya so I'm having pretty much the same problem and I'm not finding anything you guys are talking about. Here's my problem. Like the rest of you I'm having troubles with recording the audio from my computer using the stereo-mix setting in audacity. This occurs only when my usb microphone is plugged in. I understand that it has something to do with changing the inputs or outputs or something I'm just having trouble understanding where those are on my computer. My setup is this. I'm running on a laptop that has windows technical preview. My microphone is directly plugged into my laptop via usb (obviously) and my headset plugged directly into the microphone. If someone could please tell me step by step where to go on the computer and what to do to fix this so that I can have my microphone plugged in and also record my computer that would be great. I know this is over 2 years old but I'm hoping someone sees this and is able to help.
 

A:Trouble recording audio

I am surprised no one has replied to this yet, but no worries, I will do my best to help solve your problem

So from the sounds of it, you are having troubles with Audacity noticing your Microphone to record audio. Now, I have never used this program before, but from the sounds of it the only thing you are missing is setting your headset/microphone to the default in windows.

Now, I have not used Windows Technical Preview either, but based on how window's has operated since Windows Vista I am going to say it's safe to assume I could point you in the right direction to the very least.

To start, in the bottom right hand corner (Near your time) you have icons. One of them should look like a speaker, right click it and select "Recording Devices" In here you should have the option to make your Microphone the Default device.

Another way to get to this option if it's no longer accessible the way I described is to go to Control Panel, if you have the option in the upper right hand corner of the screen that says "View by:" and change it to large or small icons. There should now be one just called "Sound" in there go to "Recording" at the top.

Now in this window, find out which one is your device, easiest way is to make sure the mic is not muted (a lot of headsets have a mute button on them) and just speak into the mic, you should see the bar fill with a bit of green when you're taking, this indicates it's picking up sound. Set the "Default" to the headset you are using and then close and reopen Audacity (most of the time if the program is open when you change the default, it wont pick up on it)

let me know if any of that worked, didn't work, or you have any trouble finding what I have mentioned.

Hey guys, I was recently in the malware section, because my laptop had some problems and could not connect to the internet. Broni was very awesome and helped me clear my laptop up, but we still couldn't get it to connect to the internet. He advised me to come here for help.

I will link the previous thread, because there are some log files toward the end I think would be much more helpful than me explaining problems.

A:USB ports giving me trouble

Your drivers are corrupt. You can uninstall them and let windows reinstall them. This may fix the problem . But if the usb ports are bad. You will get the same problem back. You can also try a restore point to when the computer or laptop usb ports were working fine. I hope this helps.

Hello, I've been recently attempting to recover data from several old laptop hard drives (old as in ranging from 1-4 years) the most promising old drive which is about 3 years now has now decided to be less promising. It will show up in the BIOS and Windows (7) explorer for about 2 minutes before disappearing and and then reappearing another 2 minutes later. It is making very gentle ticks now and then but that's all. I know it still has most of the data I need on it to recover as I've managed to keep the harddrive in a sort of stasis long enough to run data recover software to preview some of the before it cuts out again. Could someone please help me diagnose this problem preferably without referring me to some data recovery company of course. Thankyou
 

A:Trouble with Toshiba Hard drive

Hey FieryDove. A ticking sound that wasn't always there during normal drive operation is an indication that something is mechanically wrong with the drive, and no software can fix a mechanical problem. I would save whatever data you can ASAP when the drive is visible then trash it.

A:Having trouble setting resolution on new widescreen monitor

Hmm; focus on getting the SYSTEM to display correctly first and then fuss with videos last.

My laptop is running at 1366-768 (recommended) for my wide screen display. I would presume your list of resolutions shown do not include 1366-768 (that's dependent upon the video driver + the monitor), so first attempt to get an updated driver for your video adaptor.

Hi, my brother just bought an FX4100, it runs at idle 38C and at full load it runs 58C is that normal with the stock cooler?

He has tried using ASRock OC tuner to overclock but if he does even just a little the computer becomes unstable.

He is using Windows 7 x64 and an ASRock N68C-GS FX motherboard, with a 650W PSU.

Is it even possible to OC with the stock cooler?

Could the instability be caused because I replaced the mobo, cpu, and ram without reinstalling windows?

Could it be because the cpu pins were slightly bent and I had to unbend them?

Thanks
 

A:FX4100 OC trouble

The stock cooler should be good enough for a small amount of overclocking. But, not for anything slightly serious.

The instability probably wasn't caused by the slightly bent pins. But, you're lucky it still works at all if the pins were indeed bent.

You can't display two different video feeds using a splitter. You need to buy another monitor and use two physical outputs on your graphics card.

Update: I have some new theories that I like much better than a fried motherboard.1. I might be overpowering my build (easy fix, just switch PSU to low power mode). 2. Circuit protection: Detected a problem with wiring the first time, and prevented booting. Could fix itself if I leave it alone for a while, and take out the BIOS battery.

Hi everyone.
I have a drawing tablet "Wacom Bamboo MTE-450A" connected through a USB port.
never had any problems with it, lately it started "connecting" and "disconnecting" making this USB plug/unplug sound, just like it was physically disconnected an dosnt get any power, even if im not using it or moving it, and its getting worse to a point where now its mostly "off".
I changed cables and changed the port it was connected to, I also reinstalled the drivers, and there is no change.
I tested it on a different computer and it seems to work properly! other devices connected to my PC through USB seem to work well (keyboard and mouse).
I have a new computer so I believe its not to blame (hardware-wise)

im lost, any advice would be appreciated.

First, you might try downloading and re-installing the drivers... then try installing another hard drive, if you have one handy... That will be one way to test your current installation...

Hi Everyone.

Unfortunately my laptop died recently however I have good reason to believe that the hard drive is still ok. There are some photos and music on it which I would like to recover.

I bought a Dynamode 2.5" SATA/IDE Enclosure from PC World and have connected this to my desktop PC via the USB connector supplied with the enclosure. The enclosure is USB powered. The laptop HDD is a WD Scorpio Blue 250GB. The desktop runs on XP whereas the laptop ran on Vista.

I cannot get my desktop PC to see the HDD. I'm sure it is plugged in correctly and the lights come on on the enclosure so it is getting power. I have installed the drivers and software from the CD Rom which came with the enclosure but none seems to have helped. Unfortunately there were no instructions with it.

Please could somebody help?

Thanks in advance!

A:Trouble using laptop 2.5" HDD as external storage with a desktop PC

Your enclosure gets power but does you hard drive? You can place you ear next to the hard drive to hear if it is spinning.. There are also 2.5" to 3.5" adapters which are specifically made so that you can connect a laptop hard drive to your desktop. When your computer does not "see" a hard drive it can be
1. no power to the drive
2. no interface to the drive
3. the hard drive is dead.
4. in your case the enclosure could be malfunctioning (unlikely but possible)

Is there any way that I can look on the drive itself without formatting? As far as I know I've never used it and nothing should be on there but I don't know whether there would be anything already contained on there from the manufacturer.

Also as well, if I need to format it should I need anything else to be able to store files on there due to it not being the default?

A:Trouble with chassis fan

are these fans plugged into the motherboard, or using a 4 pin molex?
If the MB, are the ones running slowly 3 pin, or 4 pin?

They are probably being auto controlled by the MB according to temperature. Have a look in your bios to see what temp/fan settings are enabled or disabled and how they are set.

Does anyone have any experience dealing with ASUS customer support? I've got a P8P67 LE that won't post (it's also got the faulty 3GB SATA Intel bug and is eligible for the recall.)

Problem is, I can't get ahold of ASUS at all. I've filled out their online form for the recall using the mobo serial number, but when I try to look up the status on their status page it tells me my serial number/email is invalid. I can't register again because i'm already in the system. So I filled out a customer service request 10 days ago and haven't heard back. When I call I've been transferred around, disconnected and left messages that haven't been returned.

Anyone have any advice on how to get ahold of them? I've got a dead board, eligible for recall, and it's still under warranty.

I have a Dell desktop with wifi. It can see the AP (very strong signal), but it cannot access the internet ("limited conductivity"). I tried cycling power on the modem and AP which helped temporarily. Reboot does nothing. There are 3 other notebooks that have full access to the internet thru wifi to the same AP and cable modem.

The Dell has Vista op sys, and I've run thru all the diagnostics with no real solution. This pc normally uses a wired connection with no problem.

What should I look at to get this going?

Hello all,

I have a desktop with three hard drives in it that I can boot from one to the other. One has XP on it, one has 98, and the other has 95. It has been working fine until I installed a new pci card in it. The card is a two port usb with a two usb pin-block on it. The problem is when the card is in, the computer will boot up in 98 and 95, but locks up after it POSTs in XP. I just get a blank screen. The card works fine in 98. I have booted up the computer with just the XP HD connected and get nothing. If I just connect the 98 HD, it works fine. If I leave everything connected and pull the card, everything works fine. I don't understand why the card works fine with 98 but not XP when I'm using all the same hardware.
 

A:Trouble with multiboot and a PCI card

Why in the World are you still using Win95 and Win98? Microsoft's End of Life hit and support ran out for these versions a long time ago. XP should be able to handle everything you do now. It is possible that the new PCI card has exceeded the computers power supply load ability or it could be a driver issue. Using those old OS's I can imagine drivers are real issues now

I have a rather old Linksys WUSB11 Wireless-B USB adapter that worked fine with my old D-Link DSL-2640T Wireless G router. However when I changed to D-Link DIR-615 router, problem arises. My USB adapter keeps disconnecting for a few minutes and reconnects to the router. Signal strength was averagely 3 bars that time. It was used on Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.

Any idea on why is this happening? Thanks in advance.

hi

USB is notorious for being flaky and i would and have always advised against using it, however you could try changing the channel on your router to another number this may fix the issue for you.

So I've just stepped in the door from a trip to monroe LA. Helping my dad get his dealership ready for a buyer. I've been resorting to trying to stay active on the forums by using my mobile device. Anyway, the lamp in my 305T is dead. Yay me. Warranty is gone so I'm thinking of replacing the lcd completely or repairing. Is it worth paying 489 usd to have the lamp replaced or are there any good suggestions out there for a new large format high resolution lcd?

I did notice something different today. I had left the CMOS jumper in the reset position and no battery overnight. As soon as I put the battery inn and repositioned the CMOS jumper, I plugged the power supply into the mobo. Just as I plugged in the power cord, the fan on the processor jumped as the green mobo light came on, then nothing, just the green light. I am baffled as to what the problem could be.

Hey Techspot.

I ordered these a few days ago and they arrived today, but I'm having trouble setting them up. I've plugged the headphone and mic jack into my front sockets but Windows 7 won't recognise it, in control panel the headset icon shows up as not plugged in. Any idea what I should do?
 

A:Trouble with headset

Try plugging the headset into the back audio plugs. If the headset works, you may have to enable the front audio from the bios or the front cables were never properly connected to the motherboard

my issue is so like other posts but a smidge different. my dell 1735 has two hdd bays. i stripped my original hdd and loaded it with ubuntu. i placed it in my secondary bay and hooked it up. i recieved another hdd from dell, preloaded with vista and put it into the primary "original" bay.

So this initially was a problem with my games not playing in a certain resolution without everything being cropped off on the side, and it turns out to be a problem with my resolutions/monitor in general.

I have a Samsung 2333 24" 16:9 with a 1920x1080 native resolution, and whenever i put it on 1280x720 which is the 720p setting for my monitor, everything is being cropped around the edges. The task bar is halfway gone and my desktop icons are off the screen at the top. Any idea what could be causing this?

Any help would be appreciated.

Always helpful to state your OS first.

You definitely need to install drivers for the Base system Devices. Did you get a driver CD with your notebook or do you have a restore partition? if so go to device manager and click on the yelow item and right mouse on it and select: "Update driver" let it search for the driver, may take quite long. If successful with thiose two then try the unkown and then re-install your video driver, making sure you have the correct version, are you positive it is Mobile Intel 4 series express family?

Hey,

I recently removed some malware from my computer (winxp sp3) but it seems to have left something corrupted. I can no longer connect with wlan, it will hang on 'waiting for the network to be ready' this is becuase I have an invalid IP address. Reseting the winsock does not solve it. Windows diagnostics says the winsock is corrupted but after reseting.. nothing. Also windows firewall will no longer start the ics service. I attach part of the windows diagnostics log, could anyone help me with making sense of it?

A:Trouble connecting. Invalid IP address

Check that the device settings for the network interface have not been set to a fixed IP address - go to control panel > network connections > select your device > right click > properties > double click on internet protocol (TCP/IP) and set the two obtain IP and DNS values automatically.
Reboot to reset the system

Hi everyone I m about at my wits and trouble on powering shutoffs Random end with this issue for a computer of mine and I can t figure out for the life of me what the issue Random shutoffs and trouble powering on is Here are the symptoms - If on the computer will randomly turn off will run anywhere from a few minutes to several hours at a time with no issues - If off the computer has trouble turning on eg hitting the power button often causes the fans to spin for a split second and sometimes the boot-sequence LED s begin their changes but it shuts off within - seconds no post no beep code errors though sometimes it will power on successfully - There are no warning messages from the mobo only the OS prompt saying quot Windows did not shut down properly quot if it managed to get to a booting booted Windows state so it seems like the computer doesn t realize it was screwing up - The machine will sometimes randomly power ON if it s currently off Here s what I ve done - I did manage to run a memTest which reported no errors - Tried a stripped down boot video card -stick of RAM swapped each of my and Mobo power with current PSU and a different one both produced this issue - Tried directly plugging the PSU into the wall instead of the power bar - Tried switching the power cord connecting the PSU to AC power - Tried removing the CMOS battery and replacing I have absolutely no idea what s causing this but it s driving me nuts Here are the system specs Intel Core Quad Q P Neo Mobo W Ultra Power Supply Nautilus Water Cooling Can t recall the Video Card specs but it s nothing spectacular more of a number crunching machine than a gaming one It should be mentioned that these issues mainly cropped up when I moved to a new PSU Case which is a Cooler Master HAF but I tested with the old PSU as mentioned above admittedly it only ran W The thing about the new case is that it has several more fans than the old one and while the transition took place I may have spilled a small amount of the coolant water mixture onto the video card a small amount of which dripped down onto the mobo However given that the machine has been capable of running for up to hours at a time since I don t know if this is really the cause of the problem If anyone has some ideas for what to try next or what could be the problem I d very much appreciate it nbsp

My External hard drive is a Maxtor (now seagate) with a capacity of 1TB. Has 300GB of my information i.e my life!!!

Since a couple of days I have been trying to get it to work. I connect the HD to the laptop, it lights up, makes the normal noises, but doesnt autoplay. I go into the my computer and click on the HD but it comes back with - F:/ Application not found - !!!!

Is it my pc at fault?? I use Vista on my Hp laptop!

Or is that the software for the HD at fault!

The icon does show: 600GB left of 900GB for the HD so i am guessing that the information is still intact!!!
Please help. . . !! I cant stress how valuable the info is on this HD.
 

A:External hard drive in trouble

someone once told me, and no i tell others that the 1TB drives are very unreliable and shouldnt be used for storing anything of value...

Time after time ive heard from friends and collegues who have come across this and feel sorry, after all companies make them as nothing more than a selling point, when in fact you could buy 2 lots of 500gb drives and be a lot safer.

Its sad to say but your data has to all intents gone west...and may not be recoverable, that said, you could direct mount the drive into a tower pc and use a good quality file restorer to try and get them back..

if you do, dont use a 1 TB drive again will you.

So, I have a Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard and Windows 7 and I've got some partition problems. The problems stemmed from when I went to install Ubuntu. My macbook, like so many others, has a defective superdrive that works about 3% of the time. I got like halfway through the installation and then it failed. So now I am left with a 15 GB partition that I made for Ubuntu (it is unformatted), a swap partition (unformatted), and another small partition (unformatted) that I do not know the reason for its existence. I guess that the partitions could be ExFS4 and that's why they aren't showing up, but I don't know.
Point of the story: How can I "delete" these partitions so I can merge them together and try the installation again. I've tried Paragon HD Pro, EASEUS something or another, and OSX Disk Utility.

Thanks!
 

A:Partition trouble

Have you tried going to a Macintosh support site where they know a lot about that particular model?
I don't see how you can repair that one when it requires a software install, and your drive for installing doesn't work, so that replacement would be the order of the day, in my book.

I upgraded the Power Supply to 650 W, so I know that's not the issue.

I've tried uninstalling drivers, messed with settings in BIOS (which doesnt have an option to disable onboard cards), disabled onboard card via device manager. And all of these methods have failed me. I've been doing this the whole day and I literally have no idea what to google / do next.

So I began searching the web, and found that it was supposedly compatible with the Dimension 8300. I then tried installing this card into said computer, it fit in just fine but whenever I turn the computer on with this new video card inside of it I am greeted with this god-awful beeping noise. Does anyone know what is wrong? Can it be fixed or am I stuck with the 6200 card? Please respond, ShadowSplicer.

Hello everyone. Recently I purchased the Noctua NF-P14 FLX 140mm fan. It's a great fan with many positive reviews. However, the coloring is not my taste (beige casing/brown blades). So, I want to disassemble it so I can paint it (red blades/black casing). Now I looked around online and found a guide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tUxiSMnGSQ for disassembling the 120mm Noctua NF-P12 which I figured would be similar for my fan but it doesn't quite seem so. I am having extreme difficulty when it comes to removing the fan blade itself. Unlike in this video where the fan blade releases rather easily, my NF-P14 just won't budge. It comes to the point where I'm nudging it so hard that I feel like I'm going to snap it off.

Does anyone have any experience with this fan? Some tips maybe?

Remember the rate wattage is always lower by 100watts. So that 450w going to be 350w. You'll need to get 500, 600, 700, 800, 1000w. In your case I would recommend 600 to 700w. Although some claim to be true wattage meaning if they say 500w it's 500w.

Hello all

I am having trouble connecting my verizon fios, dell 964 printer and my linksys wireless printer server. When I had comcast service it worked with moderate setup help from a computer technician. Now that I have changed to verizon, I can't seem to get it to work. Linksys will set me up with a third party for over $100 who specializes in multi systems... dell, verizion and linksys... and Verizon will do the same for the same amount of money. I have already paid a second compter technician to come in and set it up and he tells me that it can't be done and that verizon knows that there is a problem. I paid him over $170...Needless to say I'm looking to not spend another dime on this issue or I'll switch back to comcast.

I have had Fifa installed on my PC for a while and played it with no problems until today. When I loaded it, after a short while the colours went funny and it became pixelated so I exited thinking it was just a problem with the game but I've noticed a lot, if not all of the icons on my desktop, start menu etc are pixelated as well as the cursor. Ive tried some of the things the start menu help suggests but nothing helps. Is this my graphics card dying or could it be something else?
 

A:Graphics trouble

If the pixellated graphics appear outside of gaming. i.e. at startup and with just the desktop up and running then the card's Vram is likely about to need burial arrangements made.
If it just happens during gaming then try lowering the visual details to see if it lessens the problems.
You can check to make sure any attached power cable is secured correctly. You can also check to see that the card isn't blocked with dust. If the card is still under warranty then DO NOT disassemble the card to clean it.
In my experience once a card starts artifacting on a large scale, there is no way back.
Check these screenshots against what you see on your computer

Hi All ,
Just having a go at reformatting a Acer Aspire t630 acquired from an auction no software ,problem being is there is no sata in the bios only ide and the floppy drive unit is cactus so i cant load the sata drivers i downloaded from acer web site .
I have put in a ide hard drive and installed windows xp pro to that but at this point have no idea how to get the sata drive online can i use a generic sata driver to get it up and going ? The sata driver from acer is just a driver file not a setup one if that makes sense hope i have given you enough information

A:Trouble opening game

if the game has worked for a year without any problems before i want to say that it's not video driver related. however, games are updated from time to time which can yield compatibility issues. i would still think that the drivers are fine though. the actual error message itself states that the path in which the game's files are stored is not accessible, meaning the computer can't run it. since you're on Vista, I would try disabling UAC and then see what happens when you go to run the game. you may need to modify the application's security permissions or run it under another account.

Hi all.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

So I'm having trouble getting a new hard drive to boot in my bosses computer. The hard drive will boot in the other dell I'm using to set it all up and copy over stuff so I'm sure its a problem in the boot.INI or something. Regaurdless, I was going to run a repair using a windows install cd. But it won't boot. It says boot drive unavailavble. But my UBCD will boot and a few other boot disks I have made. But none of the 10 XP cd's i have will boot. I even tried putting in a fresh formated HDD. The computer refuses to boot from the XP cds. But any other boot cd I have boots fine.

Any ideas?
 

A:Trouble booting from XP install cd

You may need to get the RAID Drivers from the Motherboard Manufacturer, bang 'em on a Floppy {remember those?} and press F6 when Windows prompts for "3rd Party Drivers" near the begiining. It'll continue loading, then ask you to press "S" to specify what drivers.

It'll then install the drivers, XP will see the HDD & bobs your uncle.

The other way - if you don't have a floppy Drive, is to slipstream them in using N Lite.

Good Luck.

The HD died on my Toshiba laptop the other day. I replaced it and tried to do a full recovery from the disks that were furnished with the laptopbut had no luck.

I called Toshiba's tech support and talked to 2 different techs who both said that the problem was with my new HD.

I can install Linux on the HD without a hitch.

I can boot from the disks that came with the laptop and copy files to the new HD with no trouble.

I can see all the files on the recovery disks but if I try to do a full recovery I get error code 03-EEEE-0000.

From what I've been able to find online, those recovery disks are really nothing more than a set of coasters.

Has anyone had any luck doing a full recovery from the disks supplied with a Toshiba laptop and if so what did you do to make them work?
 

A:Toshiba Trouble

First, I'm sorry to hear about your troubles.

The recovery disks that come with most consumer laptops are not full Windows Installation disks ... they just have the hardware drivers and pre-loaded software that came with the computer and can restore your computer to a factory-original state ... IF you are using the original drive.

In this case, sine you completely replaced the drive you will need a completely fresh Windows installation. I just did a completely fresh install of Windows 7 and it's WAY better than Vista or XP.

Hi all For several months I have been trying to diagnose a problem that occurs on my Viewsonic VX monitor connected to a BFG GTX I had been running a BFG card with no problems at all but wanted something faster on this aging system Asus P AD -E Premium and got a good deal on the It worked great with the drivers included on the install CD That driver was dated When I installed the later driver I started to see video noise lines running up and down both sides of the screen when in the max resolution of x HZ The noise would become more intense trouble VX2000 and NVidia Viewsonic drivers as the monitor warmed up but would reach a point where it would not get any worse but the monitor would flicker occasionally as though it were receiving a signal out of its range When I reduced the resolution to x or x the noise was not present I got tired of trying to fix the issue so I rolled back the driver to the older one But every time I found a new driver on Nvidia s web site I would try it in hopes that the Viewsonic VX2000 and NVidia drivers trouble issue might be fixed It was not So I resigned to using the older driver Upgrading the driver really had no effect on any of my games anyway so upgrading the driver was really just a geek kind of thing that I like to do So everything was fine in XP land But this morning I installed Windows Ultimate on the same machine I created a dual boot so I can always go back to XP as needed When Win installed it would not use the older Nvidia driver so it installed the latest one Guess what I ve got the problem back I cannot avoid using the new driver anymore unless I want to stick with XP but that s not what I want to do I tried several things The only thing that solved the issue for Windows was removing the card and re-installing the old When I did that the problem was gone I could run in Windows at the highest resolution x without the noise But doing this was not a workable option because what would be the point of having upgraded to the card if I wasn t going to use it I was going to and may still do so take my box over to my brother s house where he has a nice flat screen monitor that is better than my Viewsonic I would confirm that while the card was plugged into his monitor I did not get the noise at any resolution But that won t happen until sometime this weekend and it s EDT here in New Jersey and I want to fix this problem right now I just wanted to confirm that the video card was not the culprit I hadn t been suspecting this since there was no problem with the older driver and because of the fact that I could get a few minutes of clear screen if I switched off the monitor for a few minutes Yet I was grasping so I called BFG support by phone I waited about minutes and got a live person to discuss my problem with While talking to the guy at BFG and he put me on hold twice to ask another technician the questions I was asking I was getting very technical asking about waveforms and timing I had a thought that the driver update could have caused the waveforms to change so the monitor would not be able to handle it But he came back on the line and assured me that the driver was not affecting the waveforms While I was waiting on hold the second time I was playing around with different resolutions I found one x HZ that worked with no noise at all This pretty much gave me the answer I have been looking for since April The problem is the lousy Viewsonic VX It s specs say that it will display resolutions up to x but it will do so only at Hz I don t know exactly why upgrading the video drivers with or without upgrading the OS caused the problem to appear and i don t expect I will ever know enough about how the hardware works with Windows and its drivers but I have learned something about this whole episode Don t buy another Viewsonic monitor I should have known I was going to have trouble with this monitor right from day one When I first put this system together I had purchased an ATI card The monitor would ...

A:Perplexing hardware trouble with a Dell inspiron

This is a serious error, but is usually a driver error. Your computer is about three to four years old, so it can be as simple as a dirty CPU fan or cooling channels, a defective memory module, but the driver error is most common, and the video graphics driver is the most common with that Dell model.
You need to test several things. Remove one memory module, and see what happens with the other. Then change modules and try again.
Clean your cooling channels with a can of dust off or other canned, treated cleaner air.
Go to Start->Control Panel->System-> Device Manager, and look for yellow or red flags on any and all of the devices listed. If there is a "mark" of some kind, you can assume that is the correct driver to replace.

Go to the Dell site, and enter your Service Tag off the label on the computer.
When you get to that side, have Dell Scan your computer so you know what to download, or download all the drivers.
Then put them on disk or flash driver where you can install them as needed.
Obviously, you will need another computer to do this. You might also want to print the instructions for each driver if you have not done this before.
First, update the BIOS
Second, install the Chipset drivers.
Third, install the Video Graphics driver...
Then install all other drivers that have a date more recent than your purchase date... or install them all.
Keep notes on what you do and what happens.
Get back to us if not successful.

In noticed that when i plug my ethernet cord in the LAN ethernet intergrated port my local area connection 2 keeps connecting and disconnecting. It tries to connect for about 12sec then it tries to reconnect for about 5-6sec, and this keeps doing that same process over and over. I have noticed in the back the amber light blinks every 3sec and the green light is solid. Do you think the port is about the fail or can i have any suggestion?

Nvidia Geforce 7600GT
HannsG JC199D

I notice it mostly when scrolling. Against dark backgrounds, I will see many green blue and red pixels, nearly always in increments along vertical lines. I will scroll down once or twice, and half of those will disappear, replaced by new ones. I've linked some screenshots, which I hope will help.



scrolled down twice, and this is what it looks like

A:Having Trouble with Headset Microphone and Computer Audio

I am having the exact same issue, and have the same sound card. I haven't tried this yet because of a second issue I am having but read this link (okay it's my first post and I can't post links, so you will have to adjust this):

techspot.com/vb/topic51203.html

So it appears to be a mixing issue? Shouldn't that be changable somewhere aside from the program your using?

My issue is whenever I hit setup in ventrilo, it locks the program. It's a brand new machine, on the last couple versions of vent as well - but on my older machine it did the exact same thing - different sound card. All drivers are up to date, and i tried holding down the bypass key as the VENT FAQ suggests but it has no effect.

I recently had to replace the mother board in my HP Pavillion a620n because of a nearby lightning strike. The replacement was done by a certified technician. Now when I shut the PC down I must turn off the powe strip it is connected to, turn the power stip back on and then press the power button on the top right of the PC case.

Prior to the replacement all I had to do was press the power buitton. I have checked all power settings etc and they are correct.

When I turn the power strip back on the hard drive accesss light flickers, the DVD drive light flashes and the fan start. I then pust the power button and the computer boots.

The power supply is the first piece of hardware to be hit by a power surge. it also may have been damaged

Hi there I bet you ve heard this question a million times but can any one help me install windows xp onto my new sata II hard drive I have decided to update my pc and i have put a sata drive in Never used one before On installing xp i get the bsod I have been researching into this and found that i am missing some drivers as old copies of xp don t register sata drives My motherboard detects the hard XP installing II on Drive Hard SATA Trouble drive and so thats all cool The problem is i don t know where to get a driver for it from I ve looked every where Here are my specs ASUS P KPL-AM Motherboard GB Maxtor SATA II Hard Drive I know that the pc is ok as I tried the old ide hard drive and everything was fine I have also looked on the motherboard software disc and asus website for a driver for this but they don t have one or any makedisk exe file nbsp

A:Trouble installing XP on SATA II Hard Drive

Your motherboard may need a bios update in order to fully use SATA drives. You should only be using an XP Pro, SP2 install CD now. There are jumper pins on SATA drives that can be used to slow down data rates for compatibility on older motherboards

So, I was using my PC like normal and all of a sudden I got a BSOD and when I restart it said an overclock failed even though it has been running at the same speed for about 6 months. I change my processor to 3.0 from 3.2 and it runs fine for like 15 min before completely freezing up. I try restarting, I don't get anything on my monitor but all my fans are on and my G15 keyboard won't light up so I doubt it's my graphics card. I tried reseting the bios and that didn't do anything. I was thinking it's my power supply because a kind of similar thing happened when it broke before.
specs are Q9550, 4870, 4gbs of ocz reaper ram ddr2 1066, corsair 750w psu, asus p45
 

A:PC trouble

read the FAQs in the CPU forum about overclocking. also that is the appropriate forum for overclock questions.

I recently attempted to upgrade the CPU in my older computer (Intel Celeron700Mhz to Intel Pentium III 866Mhz) and now displays POST messages and states that it is prepairing to enter BIOS and then freezes. I have tried swapping the old processor back, checked cables and connections, and tried to reset BIOS using the reset jumper on the motherboard with no luck. any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Boot trouble

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you have done all that can be done except try booting the thing with no memory or graphics card in it - just connect a speaker so you can hear the beeps. 2 beeps is good (but not likely as you have no ram) - a string of beeps means no RAM or no graphics**. Put a stick of RAM and try again - if no onboard graphics you should get more beeps but different count.
In truth I think you have probably got a bad board which was OK until you disturbed it.

** - find what your motherboard beeps codes are from either the manual or look it up on the maker's website

This morning i started up my computer, to see nothing on my screen. None of the startup sounds came until an hour later, but it was my programs starting up, not the windows sounds. It is not my moniter, I tried my playstaion 3 on it. I also ran my ps3 audio thru my computer and that also worked. My hard drive is spinning, I can tell from the vibrations. I am writing this from my phone, please help.
 

A:Unknown trouble, please help

Video graphics card or video graphics driver has gone bad.

A hard drive can keep on spinning long after it goes bad.

How do you know that your programs started up, if you cannot see them, nor hear them?

You need to give more information about your pc, you can start by filling the pc specs section in your profile. It would make it a lot easier for all of us.

OS: Xubuntu 9.04

HDD1 WD20Gig - system
HDD2 Seagate20Gig - ext3 filesystem

The Gparted partition tool sees both drives (how I formatted the Seagate) but I just don't know how to setup to use the thing! (Like a windows layout how you can casually go into the drive to store / use files).

Any advice guys?
 

A:Having trouble setting up a second HDD

Hi,

Have you assigned the 1st (system) hdd to be a Master-drive, and the second to be cable-select or slave?

If you haven't, take a look at this picture:
Click to Maximize

On top of the drive is a sticker, like the one on the picture, and on the sticker is explained how to insert the 2-pin block to assign a drive to be a Master, slave or cable-select drive.

Make sure the drive with your OS installed on it is assigned Master, and the second drive is assigned either slave or cable-select.

Try that

Having an issue starting up my computer. Left it unattended briefly, the cat knocked the tower over, and now it will not start up with the PCI-E connected to the video card. I was able to start up fine using onboard video. Do you think this is an issue with the video card, or the power supply?

Running: Asus M3N78-PRO, AMD ATHLON 64 X2 DUAL CORE 6000+, ULTRA LSP 550W power supply, Geforce 9800 GT 512MB
 

A:Start-up Trouble

reseat the cards and re-try. Also with cats you will need to clean the insides with canned air as hairballs are terrible on electronics.

Earlier today I couldn't even get my CD-ROM to run, now we downloaded a new driver and it is running, but everytime I try to import a song from a CD into itunes it freezes up itunes. Sometimes it will start importing the first song, but says that it will take 23 minutes, which I know is way too long. We have the newest version of itunes which we just downloaded today. There is no other music in it at this point.

Also, when we put a CD in and try to import it to itunes our task manager says that the CPU processes/usage is 100%. Can anyone tell me what might be going wrong. I tried to find this on itunes support, but it suggested changing the import settings, and mine were already set to the correct specifications.
 

A:CD-ROM and itunes trouble

I would look in the Device Manager and check under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" and see if any controllers have reverted to the slower PIO mode from DMA or UDMA mode. If so, change it back. Otherwise, the CD drive might be bad. They are inexpensive and usually easy to replace.
