Preferred Solution: Help Internet Speed Issue Couldn't Start New Thread

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.)

See whether it fixes itself by turning the aero peek off (apply) and then on again.

Hello, I read the thread about removal of trojan spm/lx with the popups for winantivirus but since several procedures were tried and recommended I couldn't decipher how to proceed from reading the forum thread. I am also infected. Should I do exactly as in the thread of 29 Sept. or were some of those steps ineffective? I am not experienced with hijackthis or reading the logs.

I'm running Norton Internet Security and have webroot spy sweeper installed. Spy sweeper doesn't find the problem. Win XP home, IE browser.

Thanks very much.

Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

What I tried:
1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

Any ideas?

I'm running a DSL connection from a router to my wireless laptop. Regularly my speeds aren't quite as advertised but I still get 2-4 Mb/s generally. Lately it seems my web browsing has been sluggish and doing a speed test, this is proven.

However, bittorrent downloads go much faster than normal browsing.

Can anyone explain to me why this might be? I thought my slow speed could be due to my latency, but that doesn't explain to me why bittorrent is so much faster!

Okay here s a real head-scratch-er About days ago I started noticing some serious speed issues with web browsing while using my wireless router Every once in a while I will notice little differences during what may be peak hours and whatnot Internet issue Serious speed but this is far worse I decided to do a speed and ping test and I got an F on my network that Serious Internet speed issue normally receives a low A or high B I ran a gamut of spyware tests and I am clear there Anyway the real thing that is confusing me is I attempted to connect via a hardline the cable I use to connect to my wireless router so I at least Serious Internet speed issue know it s functional but the network was unidentifiable and I could not get an internet connection but when I reconnected my wireless router and let everything restart I was able to connect wirelessly using the same modem that would not connect me through an ethernet cable I have a Belkin n wireless router and I would appreciate any help available Thanks nbsp

A:Serious Internet speed issue

Are you remembering to power cycle (unplug for 30 seconds) the modem when switching the device connected to it?

What download/upload do you get with a connection directly to the modem with Speedtest.net? With an ethernet connection to the router? With a wireless connection to the router?

A:Internet Speed issue

That is not a bad speed at all. The advertized speed is the maximum, rarely achieved in real situations. The location of your internet connection is where WildBlue's servers connect you to the internet.

Not sure what to say about your video problem except that when I had a 2 mbps connection, I watched YouTube without many delays. A lower quality feed may help.

A:Internet Download Speed Issue

Hi NomadAU, welcome to Seven Forums.

I recently had similar problems with my Netgear DGN2000. It would download on my wired desktop pc at a snails pace. On my laptop, speed was excellent. When I wired my laptop to my router it would load my home page only and gave No Internet connection. If I moved the ethernet cable to any other ports on the router to my desktop pc it would give No Internet connection.
Removing all connection related settings from both pc's and resetting router to factory default did nothing to improve anything. So I bought a Netgear DGN2200v3, now normal service resumed.

I hate to bring this up as I am not shure if it is a site problem, or my slow internet speed.
 
Often when viewing a forum page here the page [freezes] if I take too long reading or composing a reply or post.
The navigation links quit working and I have to refresh the page to get going again. More of a nuisance really than a real problem.
Sometimes even the post/reply button does not work and when I refresh the page before posting I loose the post and have to rewrite it.

What recommendations to you guys have to speeding up your PC through software? Which programs do the job, and which ones are the ones to avoid? post your opinions here.

I'll start by recommending against any program that says something along the lines of "free RAM up to speed up your PC". These cause more damage than good.

Hi,

Could you place help me with this. My window suddenly failed to start and showed the message: " An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data." I tried to use the function "Repair your computer" in my installation disc but it failed too.

I tried Startup Repair, System Restore, System Image Recovery but none of them could fix it. I'm in miserable now and can't do any work without my lap.

Please help me

A:Window couldn't start

Hi.

Besides this message, did you get anything else, something like this:

File: \Boot\BCD
Status: 0xc000000f
An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data
Did you try with 'Last Known Good Configuration'?

When you start your laptop, try to tap F8 when lap starts booting, until you see the Windows boot menu and then select Use last known good configuration.
If Windows has worked before, then you might have a chance that this works.

Second, you might be able to check in BIOS is the HDD visible.

If there is a HDD, you might try to repair Windows BDC:

hi every body,
i had a vista home premium, without any problem, for a while. yesterday my anti-virus detected a suspicious file located in c:\Users\user\appdata\Local\Temp and i allow it to delete mentioned file. after a restart windows start up couldn't be completely done and instead of log in screen, i faced with a black screen just with mouse enabled on it!! however windows boots in safe mode correctly. i have already tried start up repair but it didn't solve the problem!
could anyone help me to repair it?
Thanks in advance

A:windows start up couldn't be completely done

If you can boot is safe mode, do a system restore. Go back far enough to ensure that is is before the problem began.

Hey,

I have tried everything I know or could read to no avail. HP had me clean my ram with a eraser, do a couple of other things, including removing everything on my start-up. They couldn't figure anything out. So I have come to you. Info should be attached below.

As far as I know I havent installed any new hardware. Firefox stopped working when this started and it happened at random intervals. I have also gotten the following error codes from various screens: 0X0000007E, 0X0000001A, 0X0000003B.

Fairly new/decent computer. No previous trouble. Any help would be much appreciated.

A:BSOD Issue/Info: HP Tech Support couldn't fix

Hi -

Well, they missed quite a bit, I am sorry to say.

The bugchecks -

(7) 0x1a = severe unknown memory management error
(2) 0x7e (0xc0000005,,,) = system thread threw an exception; the exception = 1st parm = 0xc00000005 = a memory access violation

I don't believe it to be RAM at this time because you have several device drivers that badly need to be updated. Any one of these or in combination with another could have caused memory corruption.

Code:

nvraid.sys Wed Jun 06 16:34:01 2007 (46671A39) - NVIDIA nForce RAID
nvstor64.sys Fri Jun 06 22:08:11 2008 (4849ED8B) - NVIDIA nForce Sata Performance Driver
nvmfdx64.sys Wed May 21 13:48:06 2008 (48346056) - NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller

netr28x.sys Mon Jun 09 03:36:54 2008 (484CDD96) -
Ralink 802.11n Wireless Driver

atikmdag.sys Wed May 14 22:19:05 2008 (482B9D99) - ATI Video
Realtek HD Audio --> http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/...Level=4&Conn=3

NVIDIA --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

ATI Video --> http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.HTML

You also have both Avast & AVG running. Remove both as one may have corrupted the other. Download each Removal Tool (RT); save to desktop. Then go to desktop, RIGHT-click on the RT icon and select Run as Administrator. When complete - re-boot. Repeat for the other. Re-boot.

Avast removal --> http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear.exe

AVG --> http://www.avg.com/download-tools

Reset the Windows Firewall to its default settings -
START | type FirewallSettings.exe into the start search box | click on FirewallSettings.exe above | select the Advanced Tab | click on "Restore Defaults" | Click Apply, OK

I would recommend MS Security Essentials --> http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

I think that is enough to keep you occupied for a while!

Please let me know how this all works out. Much appreciated.

Regards. . .

You'll need to download a Windows ISO and do a repair install. It will keep your programs and files but replace these corrupt store apps.

Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums

It is fairly common problem unfortunately - especially if you try fixing things with powershell

This thing hasn't work for a few months, even after many reboots. When I try to diagnose my Internet connection, I get the message (translated from norwegian):

"An error occurred during error check:

An error prevents the error searching program from starting".

Thus I am never able to diagnose my network problems.

Is there some way I can diagnose this diagnosing error?

Hello,

Hopefully someone can help me out here.
My system is an HP Pavillion 7935 running Windows XP.
The problem is I am getting just a black screen everytime I boot up with a series of blocks at the bottom of the screen and after a few minutes the following error message appears:

"Windows Could Not Start Because The Following File Is Missing Or Corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original CD-ROM. Select 'R' at the first screen to start repair."

The system did not come with a Windows Setup CD-ROM. I tried to go into Safe Mode with Command Prompt by hitting the F8 key, but a command prompt window does not appear, just a list of a few file names, then the same error message that I stated above appears.

Can anyone help me with this problem?
Thanks in advance for the help.

When I start windows my internet doesn't connect straight away. The internet icon stalls on the little blue circle, then I'm left to diagnose the connect every time, which takes a few minutes before I'm connected. The taskbar is also slow to respond.

I did a scan with spybot and picked up spyware that was located in explorer.exe so I thought that might have sorted it, but it didn't. I dunno whether it is a start up program that is affect my network driver.

A:Windows Couldn't Start Because the Following Files and Missing or Corrupt

I do not know the answer to your question about what to do to find that file on your system, but when I got that same message a while back I was able to use a rescue disk (boot disk) from the Fix-It-Utilities 9 disk to go in and use System Restore to restore my computer to a previous date and that fixed it like nothing had ever been wrong wtih the computer.

All I had to do was put in that disk, start the computer, and select use System Restore. It let me choose a restore point and in a very short amount of time, all was well.

I bought the disk for about 30 bucks at Walmart and it comes with a bunch of other utilities as well as one year of virus protection

A:Windows 7 Failed to Start, and System Repair couldn't Find Anything

This is a little confusing.
 
You stated that this computer stops loading before the login screen.  But then you post all these things you have done, all of which would require either booting into Windows normally, or in Safe Mode.

It sounds like it needs a win 8 compatible driver , error 20 is usually the drivers corrupted or incompatible with the OS so the service can't find the device.

Reset IE to its defaults. To do this perform the following:
 
Go to Control Panel
Go to Internet Options
Click Advanced Tab
Select Reset button at bottom
Make sure everything is checked and hit ok
After if completes Try opening IE
 
You may also want to run a full system virus scan. I recommend Malwarebytes

Hmm, works here.

Won't post in the Win 7 Section. Just goes to a blank screen.

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

Thread Title: How Can I STOP Windows Update From Running, Or Trying To Run.
-----------------------------------

Thread Body:
While I'm in the process of testing some things and theories regarding my BSOD and Black Screen issues on my Gateway, I have started to use a recently acquired Lenovo for playing music.

It is off the web. All network connections are unplugged or disabled. There is no direct threat to it from the web.

As a result, I do not want WinUpdate running. When I get done with my tests, I may decide to manually start it and let it do it's thing.

Since it can't connect to anything, it just keeps trying to, causing the CPU temp to rise, fans to run, use more AC wattage, etc.

I have it turned off in WinUpdate, GWX Control Panel and Services (set to Manual), yet it keeps trying to run.

How do I kill it once and for all until I want it to run in a few days or weeks?

Yes...........I got it. Install sygate firewall in your system and and when it will ask for the applications to run give them permission yes or no. There an application Generic host win32 comes, give it permission 'No' always to remember. Now sit back and relax your problem is solved.
This was due to the problem of Generic Host.

Uninstall AVG. It is the internet's worst application in the world and is probably causing you issues. Disabling will not have the same effect.

The heat has finally hit in Idaho and my computer is feeling it The funny thing is that my heat thread... it's Yep, another issue related apartment isn t exactly overheated though The CPU is now sitting somewhere at around degrees Celcius The only upgrades on this system since last year is that I now have a GeForce GT instead of an FX and GB RAM vs MB last year Other than those two items it s exactly the same and had no heat issues at all last summer or at all I doubt either of these two are the issue to the increased heat I am aware the GT draws more power than the My side is off the case and the rest of the computer is running at degrees Celcius I hope that gives an idea of where I m sitting at computer wise I guess what I want to know is would removing the heatsink and fan from the cpu and reapplying thermal grease be the best option Or should I just get a whole new heatsink and fan I don t have access to the thermal grease at the moment so I Yep, it's another heat issue related thread... can t just try it out for a couple of days so I wanted to know Yep, it's another heat issue related thread... what anyone else thought as in if this is a good direction to pursue Yep, it's another heat issue related thread... reapplying or what instead would be the best course to take Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Yep, it's another heat issue related thread...

Taking the hs/fan off to clean and reapply the grease is a good idea-

- but, it would be even better to upgrade the pair while you have 'em off.
You may know already but ensure the heatsink is free of dust and other matter. Make sure the fan is running up to speed and is clean also.
You may also check and see if there is something that's running in the background using the CPU and causing it to warm up.

Only had this new pc a few weeks and it is so slow now after 3 blue screen of death crashes that caused this I think, I believe firefox caused. I am not sure how to read dump files to show you details of the BSOD. I am including details of my PC along with the hijack this log, my system is clean though according to antispyware and virus scans.

I installed 64bit before this 32bit one on another partition of this HDD but cannot boot into it anymore at startup because this PC won't let me select it because it does not detect my keyboard in DOS mode for some weird reason.

A:Snail Speed Pc At Times And Always Slow Internet Speed On Vista Ultimate

I found this helpful information on possible solutions, very familiar with errors on previous Microsoft operating systems. http://www.vandersluijs.nl/content/view/973/96/lang,enI uninstalled one of the suggested updates and so far it is fine, the update was only optional so no security threats. I think it has helped, not certain if it will be like a fresh install because windows is slower than it was two weeks ago. If 3 weeks is best windows can handle for being ready for a new install I may have to go back to Linux. I hope this thread can stay on this forum somewhere to help others follow the link I posted above for possible solutions to this problem, it will save them time and effort trying numerous things.

My computer was running just fine til about a week ago. I am on a secure network that was before yielding 1/mb/sec download speeds on wireless router. I have tested the network on my laptop and it still runs just fine, however my desktop has become sluggish, the download speeds are down to 30kb/sec and the search function has been taken over by "searchfastfind.net" that Malware Bytes has failed to find. Today the internet would simply die and not reconnect, or my browser would redirect to dead sites. The CPU on any processes doesn't seem high, but my computer is screaming like it's running several programs at once. I am using Vista, all updates installed that are available and needed.

What would I do to figure out the sort of malware I suspect this to be?

I'm hoping this is a new post to the thread
I also hope I just posted a link to said thread, as it's swapped my link for a big picture.

I have a 7020 ssf pc running win7 and the sound is compressed. I have opened Dell Audio to find the equaliser controls and maxx audio controls missing, as in this thread. However I do have speaker setup and default format controls.
The info in this thread is for win8 and uses names and routes through my PC I don't recognise. I get the idea I need to stop the PC making changes, then remove and reinstall the realtec drivers but how?

Hello, and to the Malware Removal forum! My online alias is Blade Zephon, or Blade for short, and I will be assisting you with your malware issues!If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know.In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Watch Topic. By clicking this and then choosing Immediate E-Mail notification and then clicking on Proceed you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.Before we begin cleaning your machine, I'd like to lay out some guidelines for us to follow while we are working together.I will be assisting you with your malware issues. This may or may not resolve other problems you are having with your computer. If you are still having problems after your machine has been determined clean, I will be glad to direct you to the proper forum for assistance.Even if things appear better, that does not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions until I give you the all clean. Absence of symptoms does not mean that all the malware has been removed. If a piece of the infection is left, it can regenerate and reinfect your machine. Attention to detail is important! Since I cannot see or directly interact with your computer I am dependent on you to "be my eyes" and provide as much information as you can regarding the current state of your computer.I ask that you please refrain from running tools other than those I suggest to you while I am cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so I know what is going on with the machine at any time. If you act independently it will cause changes to your system that I will not be aware of, which will make the process of cleaning the machine a much slower and more difficult process. Additionally, some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.Please perform all steps in the order received. If you are unsure or confused about any instructions I give you, you should ask me to clarify before doing anything. Additionally, if you run into any problems while carrying out instructions, you should STOP and reply back here explaining what happened.After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

Hi; I have a Dynalink router and on plan which I get really nice speeds for me (downloads a few megabytes a second), using Windows XP via ethernet.
However as soon as a laptop is also plugged in also via ethernet and streams videos, the internet on my Windows XP computer is so slow, web pages can barely open.
Is there anyone to somehow make both of them at least able to both use the internet? What's the problem? Thanks in advance for any help

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

? OS - Vista/ Windows 7 ? Vista
? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x86
? What was original installed OS on system? Vista
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? Pre-installed
? Age of system (hardware) 4 years +
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? I restored my system to factory defaults and ever since, I've been getting a BSOD.
? CPU (Unsure what it's asking)
? Video Card (Unsure)
? MotherBoard (Unsure)
? Power Supply - brand & wattage (unsure)

If you need any other info or if you need the info that i'm unsure of let me know and i'll try and find it out thanks

Hello and welcome to TSF!

2/3 of the attached dumps are of the D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL bugcheck which essentially means that a device driver has a bug and attempted to access invalid memory, the pagefile has been corrupted or there is a memory problem. In your case, these 2 D1 dumps are stating the fault as nwifi.sys, which is the
NativeWiFi Miniport Driver (a Windows driver).

However, if take a look into the stack text, we can see that athrusb is mentioned, athrusb = athrusb.sys (Atheros Wireless LAN driver). In other words, your wireless lan drivers are faulting the NativeWiFi Miniport Driver.

Hello all long time browser of this site but first time poster I will try to be as thread. start Vista won't Another HDD Is dead? my detailed as possible but please ask for more if needed as I ll probably leave important ones out Thank you for any help Basically I am running a Dell XPS on Windows Vista and cannot get it to start properly For Another Vista won't start thread. Is my HDD dead? the past month or so it has been acting strangely Basically anytime it s reset I have to go through a Dell Pre Boot System Assessment Build It would run through some diagnostics and then start properly This always worried me but it always came back on properly I have also been hearing strange loud grinding noises from it for at least a month or two I never thought much of them though as sometimes computer s are loud Now it will not start properly at all though and I suspect it could be a hard drive failure Yesterday morning I tried putting a new CD in it and opening iTunes which became unresponsive I tried logging off and logging back on which usually fixes that problem but the process of logging off was taking incredibly long so I and this was probably a mistake just powered it off Now when I start it I get quot Windows failed to start A recent hardware of software change might be the cause quot It then prompts me to either start Startup Repair or start Windows normally which brings me back to the same screen I have tried Startup Repair and am told it cannot be repaired automatically I have tried booting from the last good configuration which does not work I have tried System Restore and am told that no restore points have been created which is not true but that s what it says I have tried the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool I am kind of stumped as to what to do next Through researching my problem I have found that maybe changing my boot sequence in the BIOS would help but it appears that my HDD is not present My options in the boot sequence are Onboard SATA Hard Drive not present WDC WD AAKS- YGA Onboard or USB Floppy Drive not present Onboard or USB CD-ROM Drive I have online data backup through Carbonite so data loss would not be a huge problem if I had to reinstall Windows or get a new HDD I would just like to make sure there are no other fixes before I pursue one of these options When I try Startup Repair this is what I get Problem Signature Problem Event Name StartupRepairV Problem Signature AutoFailover Problem Signature Problem Signature Problem Signature Problem Signature NoRootCause Problem Signature NoRootCause Problem Signature Problem Signature Problem Signature WrpRepair Problem Signature OS Version Locale ID I m just stumped as to what to do next I e-mailed a local computer store in my town and maybe they will be able to help but I imagine it won t be exactly cheap I don t know what the rates for computer repair are I also have a Geek Squad nearby but unless I m told otherwise consider that a last resort I am no computer wizard but can follow directions simple enough and if possible would like to fix it myself which is why I m here We have two other laptops in the house which I m typing on now and have smartphones and I am on winter break so it s not an urgent problem but it is rather annoying Thank you to everyone

So sometime ago around about the start of November my internet speed dropped out of nowhere and has remained at the constantly lowered speed since then Usually I would have a download speed of mbps however in recent days that s more like mbps When trying a bandwidth test that would usually have been about mbps however that is more like mbps now A way I used to scope what my bandwidth was was using the Formula com website where when you watch a video on it it will tell you your bandwidth rating before hand That as I say has dropped from the mbps to the mbps mentioned This is normally an and Speed Speed Drop Bandwidth Internet Sudden okay speed to do things however whilst my father is using Netflix the internet becomes so slow that it is basically impossible to do anything Normally on my old internet speed it would have not been a problem Now I ve done all the tests that are normally mentioned to Internet Speed and Bandwidth Speed Sudden Drop do as I have been searching for an answer since the Internet Speed and Bandwidth Speed Sudden Drop internet speed tanked It is not a computer specific problem as it is exactly the same on all devices connected to the router I have rung my ISP and they have said that my line should be receiving around mbps as we run on an ADSL connection However doing a line test through the same provider says we should be getting mbps My ISP reports no problems with the line and there has been no change at my end either When the internet suddenly dropped as I say it was a sudden speed decrease it didn t happen over a period of time it literally happened in an instant I was on a BT HomeHub This hub would continuously be disconnecting due to a fault however the internet speed was always at the mbps Bandwidth However around about the th- th of November as I say the internet just dropped but we were still having troubles with the disconnections A BT HomeHub was then upgraded to which has since stopped the disconnections but the speed has remained exactly the same Any advice would be appreciated on this and I thank you for any time that you put into this issue I just hope that it s something that can be resolved I just want to know what has caused it it s one of those things that just shouldn t happen but has and it is mighty frustrating Again thanks Phil nbsp

Hi all, after a lot of troubles and lookung for more solutions here some findings:
- Gfx performance - install GfX drivers from 14th April and it will perform as it should (also avail through Msft Win10 Update)
- flicker in screen - install GfX drivers from 14th April and it will perform as it should (also avail through Msft Win10 Update) & latest TB drivers
- coil whines - no solution found yet
- battery live - is the worst. I get 3-4h doing only eMail with 25-50% screen brighness. I ran some check tools and noticed that I have a constant voltage in the GPU (0,7V) which should actually go back down to 0 (at least all other 6th gen devices I have do that)
- fan is always spinning (balanced power setting) when plugged while only doing eMail (no streaming of music or similar)
- standby power issue - so solution found yet

Sad that you have to do this amount of beta testing on a very expensive laptop.  Unfortunately, as  business purchaser of many laptops for my company, I cannot spend this amount of time to figure out whey a brand new laptop, 10 minutes out of the box is flickering and crashing to a black screen multiple times.
Not only am I not going to make a third mistake by ordering a replacement, I'm looking at other vendors.

Run SFC -SCANNOW Command which should remove the theme's intrusion into Win7 System files, which would be what is causing the problem.

I've been told before that download speed is independent of how fast your Internet connection is. Is that true?

A:Download Speed v. Internet Connection Speed

Short answer = no. But on the other hand yes. Depends on how you mean the question.

Internet connection speed is defined by download speed and upload speed.

Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

It's probably an issue of semantics, i.e. what they meant when they said "download". Your "download speed" is dependent on how fast your ISP's download speed, but also how fast the downloading server us uploading the data, be it a file or a web page, or whatever. You can't get something faster than someone is sending it to you, however you can get it slower.

hi! i just wanna ask between the difference of the download speed and the internet speed. because i have a 1.5mb connection i tried at speedtest and when i download i always get a 190-200kbps rate. so its not actually 1.5mb in my download speed even my internet speed is 1.5mbps. is there and calculator what should be my connection if i want my download speed like 1mb per second? thank you very much.

A:difference between the download speed and internet speed?

Are you sure you're not getting 190-200KBps? You have to watch because the speed is often stated using different bit rates. When you see 1.5Mbs (lower case b) then it is megabits per second. If you see 190KBs (upper case B) then it's talking kilobytes per second. There are 8 bits in a byte so you really need to multiply the KBs number by 8 to determine the megabits or divide the Mbs number by 8 to determine the megabyte number.

In your case 200KBs multiplied by 8 is 1600Kbs or 1.6Mbs.

Wikileak documents show Governments couldn`t penetrate Comodo Internet Security:

This is what Comodo now claims, is it true.....

Wikileaks has just revealed a government sponsored and used malware calked finFisher. https://wikileaks.org/spyfiles4/

The developers of this malware apparently tested all antivirus products to see if their malware can penetrate these antivirus products or not, and wikileaks published the AV test document. https://wikileaks.org/spyfiles4/documents.html

COMODO Internet Security proved itself against government malware that it has solid protection and no infection!!! This is what the creator of the malware says according to wikileaks.

Now you know how powerful Comodo is when protecting you

A:Wikileak documents show Governments couldn't penetrate Comodo Internet Security

That tidbit of information makes me not want to use Comodo.If it is really true more power to Comodo. On the flip side is the information what it really appears to be? In this day in age nothing would surprise me.Just my personal take on it of course

I just restarted my system and it looks like neither Mozilla or IE can start. Minutes ago they were working just fine. Opera works just fine but when I try opening Internet Explorer I just get a blank page and when I try typing an address it goes unresponsive. Mozilla doesn't even open a window. It does show up as a process but not as an application. I just connected my phone via USB and tinkered around a little bit trying to get it to work but couldn't in the seconds in between the browsers working and not working. I'm stumped. If it's a virus, why is Opera unaffected. And why is it affecting IE and Mozilla in different ways? I reinstalled IE but it's doing the same...
Please this is driving me crazy!

Edit: Just finished a quick scan with AVG and it found no infections...I'm stumped...

A:Another internet connection problem thread!

After getting at least to SP2 Fall 2006 Original NVIDIA Chipset Drivers should be installed first.

Then Fall 2006 Original NVIDIA LAN Drivers, and then maybe graphics, audio or modem.

I wasn't sure from you description whether you did that or just tried installing randomly or with only SP1.
