Preferred Solution: v weird wifi network issue....

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

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

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi lister,

Is this issue happening in your own wireless network?

Do you have the latest router firmware?

From your wireless computer pls. install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector[/URL].
Click on the 'Show Networks' to display all wireless networks on the xirrus icon on your desktop of if you have one running in a corner. Tap the Printscreen key on your keyboard, open up Paint then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then SAVE it. Upload and attached it on your next post.

Also, in your computer's Device Manager locate your Wi-Fi adapter right click on it choose properties. Disable any Power Savings Mode in Power Management.

Please post an update.

Hey everyone, I've been having a really weird problem here. I've been working as a sysadmin for a couple of years and this is probably the first time I've seen this. I'm currently working in a company which has a small 20-computer LAN. Now the issue is that a couple of the machines can't seem to log in or do any networking at all, but in one, this situation only happens in the morning and in the other it just happens in the afternoon. In the latter case, the only way to fix it was to move the computer to another location inside the company. Bear in mind that these problems are rather recent in computers that otherwise work perfectly. The machines run Windows 98 SE (the first one) and Windows ME (the second one) in a W2K Server Domain environment. Any help is appreciated.

So I have this weird issue with my network. I currently am using dsl and it has never caused me problems before. Now I noticed that it gets dropped randomly. The weird part is that it will have 0 download rate and as soon as I open my laptop (which automatically joins the network), the download resumes. I am talking about blizzard's downloader which uses p2p. My computer is wired to the router. It is also weird that when my laptop goes to sleep the network drops off. How do i fix this? Thanks in advance for the help.

i'm having a weird issue with my internet network(never had it before).

i just built a new desktop and install vista X64 ultimate on it (everything works fine), my wifes laptop has vista home premium X86.

for some reason when i reboot the desktop it kills my internet connection for both computers! it does come back after a short while maybe 2 -5 mins later after vista finishes booting up.

they are both set as home network computers. never had this issue before when my old desktop had XP Pro on it.

any ideas to try would be greatly helpful.

i have already unchecked IPv6 on both computer as i thought that was the issue but it still does it

oh yeah almost forgot when it does this i can still talk to both computers thru the network I.E. i can look at my desktop from her laptop and vise versa.

A:Weird issue with Internet Network ?

im guessing your using a LAN connection if that is the case
look at the router\modem when you reboot does the power go out there too

I've recently upgraded to windows 8 and with it I got an issue, a few hours (sometimes days) after I start my PC up I become unable to load any internet pages it says "No data received", the odd thing being that if I'm on skype and playing online game these will still work fine even while I am unable to access any web pages. I've tried changing browser, IE, firefox and chrome, no effect. Troubleshoot problems also finds nothing wrong with it.

Any advice?

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot etc

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

This should also work for windows 8
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

Ping Tests
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

Start> Run {search bar in Vista/W7}> type CMD to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

For Windows 8
to open a Cmd Prompt or an Administrator Cmd prompt from the Desktop. Use Win + X and choose Command Prompt or Command Prompt (Admin) from the list.

Type the following command
Ping {then a space and then add the number that is shown against the item labelled "default gateway" shown in the results from the ipconfig /all}
Post back the results in a reply here
right click in the command prompt box
select all
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

Type the following command
Post back the results in a reply here
right click in the command prompt box

Type the following command
Post back the results in a reply here
right click in the command prompt box

For your information only
these tests will check various stages of the connection, the first ping test, ping default gateway checks to see if you still have a connection to the router.

Hey I am having a Build network in x64 Weird 7068 issue strange problem with one of three Windows computers on my network Let's say my network SSID is quot networkname quot So I have this laptop that I'm setting up on the network for the first time It successfully connects over wireless Weird network issue in Build 7068 x64 to quot networkname quot However after a few minutes the connection switches to local only No more Internet So I try troubleshooting it by disconnecting from and reconnecting to quot networkname quot Now the computer spends a full minute or two in the quot Identifying quot stage of connecting to the network When it's finally done it says I am connected to local and Internet but the connection is quot networkname quot And with that technically-incorrect name the laptop can no longer connect to my homegroup or view any network-shared files The other two Windows computers on the network one running Build and one running are able to create and join homegroups and share files and folders to each other just fine But none of these features are working now on the laptop I'm assuming due to the incorrectly reported SSID So how do I get Windows to drop the weird quot quot from the end of the network name and hopefully fix the networking issue Thanks - Phil

A:Weird network issue in Build 7068 x64

You'll have to delete the references to both networks (after removing the current network) by following the instructions at - Eliminate 'Multiple Networks' and Get Your Internet Back in Windows Vista to get rid of them - see if they still apply to Win7 (I don't ahve multiple networks so I cannot verify for a fact that this works....

This makes me wonder if there's a Windows Update that is interfering with your network card driver. It's a pain, but you could start uninstalling the networking-related updates one-by-one ("Programs and Features/View Installed Updates") (reboot after uninstalling each one to check the issue). If it's an update, the issue will be resolved after you've uninstalled the right one(s). Or you could format/reinstall again and then update one-by-one, rebooting in between each, and see which one breaks it and uninstall that one.

I had a similar issue were I was stuck in Aeroplane mode on a cleanly installed W10. Turned out I had to uninstall it from the HID's in Device manager. It's worth checking that he's not stuck in it too. Search for drivers in Windows 7, from the HP website and you'll most likely resolve the issue.

It all depends on location, location, location. Some Gateways are just garbage. If you are not getting a strong enough signal, get an Access Point. Also you need to make sure that you are not on a congested channel, which is usually Channels 6 & 11 for 2.4 Ghz units.

Hi there

This USB Wifi adapter seems to be a MEGA performer --Lovely finally to be able to THINK of getting rid of LAN cables all over the place.

I've no probs with decent HD Movie streaming from a SERVER with one of these (I unplugged the LAN and inserted the USB Wifi adapter into a USB3 slot --note this needs genuine USB3 to work at proper speed). My Home router can deliver 802.11ac so no probs there.

Brilliant piece of kit and NO MORE CABLES !!!!!!. Wifi will soon be able to deliver comparable speeds to LAN especially for HOME networks. !!!

Here's the UK Link but is available in US and Europe. In any case it's delivered (in my case) by Amazon S.A.R.L (Luxembourg) so no tax !!!. even though I ordered from UK web site --they will ship outside UK tax free.

A few day before the wifi disappers, my laptop had started to lag every few seconds. I tried to find a solution for this problem, but it was of no avail. After the last time I restarted it, it did not recognize any wifi or network. the upper keys have all stopped working, and the screen has become very bright. Moreover, troubleshooting does not recognize any problem.I'd appreciate any help.

I have been using fiber broadband for the past 2 years with the wireless security setting "Mixed WPA2/WPA-PSK." There were no problems for 2 years.
Suddenly, on October 11, 2015, all wireless devices (laptops, phones and tablets) failed to connect. Phones and tablets would show "authentication problem" and the laptops would just not connect to the same network (Windows was unable to connect message).

The only way to access the network wirelessly and still have a measure of security was to use WEP shared with a network key.

The local ISP sent 4 technicians and changed the router 4 times, but could not solve this problem. Each time they came on-site and set the router to Mixed WPA2/WPA-PSK, wireless connection was alright until they left my home. After that, no amount of troubleshooting could get the wireless connections up, unless I reverted to WEP shared.

Ok my st time here seemed like a good place for some advice My basic problem i m connected to a network and it seems to be changing its security type jumping from WPA -PSK to WEP I m using this same wifi Activity Weird Wifi antenna What s weird is no other detectable network does this my pc s network access menu only rarely shows the change from wpa -psk to wep but I did get inSSIDer for checking this thing and it does show its changing security types about every minute or so The other strange thing it would never let me Weird Wifi Activity connect at all with just entering the key only by manually making a network sometimes it shows full bars others like now when i m typing it shows a red X over the icon I went and checked for any strangeness but can t find anything in there but it is broadcasting separate frequencies and GHz at the same time I can see that both frequencies are set to use WPA -PSK with the same password but different SSIDs The noticeable thing is when it has the red X the internet seems slower and tends to just not let anything after the st few minutes of using the net Any ideas what s going on with this stuff i ve never seen any network do this And yes i m on neighbors wifi and they do know i m poking around any help would be appreciated P S I can do screenshots if needed appropriate nbsp

A:Weird Wifi Activity

howdy and welcome. Whether or not the neighbor knows about your using their wifi is immaterial, as it's the ISP that makes the call as to whether or not it's legal. And ISP's do not allow that, unfortunately, so I'm going to have to close this one up.

thanks for understanding,

When I open the Wifi screen thingie, everything works just fine. There is just one thing, I don't get the number behind "Wi-Fi"

Anyone does get it?



A:Weird number behind Wifi

Well you appearantly have 3 different wifi connections created.

Go to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Change Adapter Settings and you'll see the different Connections available. Determine which one is redundant or leave them be as it's not really hurting anything.

I'm definitely a neophyte when it comes to understanding the technical aspects of WiFi... Only recently did I start looking at how my WiFi router (Netgear WGR-614v8) is performing compared to others in the area.

I have a WiFi analyzer program on my HTC Evo mobile and the signal that my router is emitting looks different than any other WiFi router that I've ever seen before.

In the attached picture my router is in blue and my neighbor's is in red.

See how mine seems to be on and then off and the back on again?

Does anyone know if that is normal and why my router has a vastly different signal structure than the other one?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.


A:Weird signal from my WiFi router...

that appears to be a square wave, not a signal that's turning on and off. I don't know what app you're using, so I have no clue why your display is what it is.

I have a weird problem with the wifi I connect to in my office studio.

I keep getting disconnected =(

I know my connection is stable because the wifi signal icon in my taskbar (I am running windows 8) does not have the exclamation point and I do not have the same problem with my other desktop and ipad connected to the same router.
I do a quick fix by disconnecting and reconnecting again and this solves the problem.

I have recently changed ISPs and I had the same problem for both of them.

I also bring my laptop home from work and I do not have the problem at home. Only in the studio and only on my laptop.

I am running Windows 8.1 on an Asus X550Z notebook.

Hope you guys can help!

Okay, usually when you hover over the networks listed and available from the taskbar icon, you get a nice little window with a few helpful tidbits of info for each listed network when you mouse action hover over the names. It tells you the encryption type, and the SSID, plus a few other details.

Well, on my computer, the information is appearing behind the list to where I can't read it. The network list is overlapping on top of the hover info. Talk about annoying. I searched for various things on google, with no luck. I tried:

Windows 7 network list obscuring hover details, and various other combinations to no avail. Anyone here have a clue what might be breaking this? I'd like the hover details to appear properly so I can read it. In the meantime I've installed the free version of Acrylic Wifi to work around the issue. Thanks.

A:Wifi Network info/details appearing behind Network List on hover.

The problem must be driver based or an add-on program because I don't get any of that. All I get is the name and whether it's connected or not. Check that your adaptor driver is up to date and/or the program you use to display the data is up to date.

Well, here's the happy ending to my story. After exchanging my NVidia card for another, and also updating the BIOS and upgrading all the motherboard, chipset, NVidia and D-Link drivers to their latest versions and realizing none of these solved the problem, I decided to change my wireless card.

I exchanged my D-Link WDA-2320 PCI wireless card with someone who has a Linksys WMP54G PCI card and problem solved! My D-Link card lives happy in his machine, and his Linksys card is happy with the NVidia card in my computer!

Cisco Aironet 1550 series:

The Proxim seems like the better product, and sells for a bit less.

Will I need to purchase anything else besides several of these for the network? I'm assuming the 'home' router connects to a PC (or the PC via the gateway address) for managing the network.

On my MacBook Pro I can go into the network settings and change the location profile I have setup for networks but I don't see anything like this for Windows 8.

You can go into IPv4 Properties of this NIC, then you can use the Alternate configuration tab to set up the alternate IP, or use the Advanced tab to add a static IP/gateway/DNS etc. to TCP/IP.

Hey guys,
I am having two issues with my laptop.
1.  When my laptop is running on battery (no matter which power option I choose) the screen will go black or flicker if I stop moving my mouse.  The moment I move it goes back to being fine but if I let go it flickers.
2.  When I put my computer to sleep and then turn it back on later, the wireless card just stops working.  I get a red x on the wifi icon in my toolbar and it will not show any networks, even if I  Disable/Re-enable the wireless card.
I have already deleted the graphic card drivers and wireless drivers and reinstalled. My laptop is has a dedicated graphic card but it also uses the onboard graphic card.  Let me know if you have any other questions.

I went into the my computer thing and tried to open the disc from there. The only problem is that it is not recognizing the disk itself! There is no problem with the disk, as it runs fine on the other computer. I also went to the atari forums, and they were talking about making sure it can play dual-layered disks, and a few other things which i cannot recall at the moment. anyways, the cd-rom on this computer is a LTN-5291s. once agan it plays other cds just fine, but not this.

A:Weird issue with my OS would suspect that this is a possible cause.I have deleted your HJT log data for the moment...will put it back later if it seems that this is a malware issue.Typically, boot problems that can be resolved by booting into safe mode...are driver issues, not malware issues.I'd like for you to do a couple of things.Read the following,, download/install BlueScreenView - BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report as BSOD.txt.Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.Then...I want you to check Event Viewer for errors (not warnings, not information items) which have been noted which approximate the timing of your most recent boot sequence situation. Double-click on any line item in Event Viewer to see the pertinent detail for that item.How To Use Event Viewer - Lastly...I want you to check Device Manager (Start/Run...type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter) for any indication of device/driver problems.After you have done all of the above...I would like you to run the chkdsk /r command on your system.Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (space between k and /) and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter. Reboot the system, the chkdsk /r command will execute...upon completion, the system will attempt to boot into XP.Let us know how it goes and we will know the next step to take.Louis

Hey guys,

weird issue.

I got an HP tablet tx1000 and under users I have two "Desktop Folders"
One has the regular vista desktop icon and another is just a file folder thing.

I cannot delete it because apparantly Windows points to it as the default desktop location, which is true because I can see my desktop icons there.

The funny thing is its located in: C:\Desktop\Desktop\Desktop\Desktop\Desktop or something like that.

Any idea how to fix this and make ONE desktop folder and delete the other since I have two C:\desktop folders.

I am pretty computer savvy so if you give me enough of a step-by-step i should be good. Vista is new to me.

I have this really weird issue with my Laptop. If I plug a USB device into it, it doesn't see it. The exception to this rule is when I
Have plugged the device in while the computer is either off or in standbye. (and probably hibernate, but I haven't tried.) Some devices still don't work then, such as my iPods. These I have to do the same with, except I have to plug them into the USB port on my Bluetooth adapter which connects via PCMIA. (PC Card) Any help solving this issue would be much appreciated, I have tried the Toshiba fprim, and I think the Microsoft forum. (It's been a while.) Thanks!

FYI, it is a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4244 running Windows XP Media Center Edition SP3.
I thought since I entered that upon registration it would put that somewhere easy. I guess not, so there it is so you don't have to dig through my profile.

Okay so I am having this weird problem with my computer, I'm pretty sure it's the power supply but not 100% certain

My computer works fine, except the last 2 days it's turned itself off 3 times, the last time it happened it wouldn't turn back on, so I left it alone and tried one more time, and that time it turned on. So..... I dunno? I think the power supply might be going, or my system is overheating, what do you think?

A:Weird Issue

It could be that your processor is overheating and your BIOS is set to shut down at a certain temperature. I just had some trouble of my own with a power supply, where my computer would light up, fans spin, but the hard drives wouldnt. Soon after replacing PSU, everything works fine. Check your BIOS for a max temp, and maybe increase it if it is a bit low. Also, check your event viewer (Start>control Panel> Administrative tools> Event Viewer) and see if you are getting "Bug Checks" or "Unexpected Shutdown" in the "System" area of the Event Viewer and post back

when you click on winlogon u should see something that says AutoAdminLogon if there is a 1 there u want to change it to a 0 to disable the auto admin login feature thus solving your problem see if that helps at all a bit! good luck!

Hi guys. Bit of a strange issue. Sometimes when i use a particular burning program (ConvertXTOdvd), and following closing of the program for some reason whenever i begin browsing and Firefox opens, it won't show its open on the Taskbar but will be open in the screen if that makes sense. The only way i can refresh the taskbar so i can see Firefox windows etc is if i press the windows key on my keyboard.

On reliability monitor it just says Windows explorer restarted.

Bit of a loss as to what to do to be honest. I'm not sure if its because of the ConvertX program or just a generic bug.

A:Weird Issue

I would try a different burner software and see if it goes away.

I run a 4k monitor and then two side 1440p monitors. So i have my games set to borderless windowed mode so i can easily switch to the other monitors in the middle of gaming. Before i did this clean install of anniversary update if i had a game open and hit alt tab the taskbar of the main monitor would appear over top the game and i could use it. Now that i did the update though when i press alt tab it doesn't have this effect unless it happens to be a program on the same monitor as the game which rarely is the case. Any idea what setting could be causing this?

I dont know if i am going crazy or what. Every once in a while (1 a month, more once every 2 months?) a word document appears on my desktop. Its named "~$x credit.doc" or something weird like that.

If i search the for files on my computer with .doc extention, it shows up as both in the recycle bin and on the desktop, even after i delete. however saved dates are from like oct 2006.

if i open the file its all jumbled characters.

what could this be? i am not at my pc to post a hijack log or anything, but does anyone know what this could be?

Please help me with this one! Thanks

i got this weird issue with vista. When i try and be on mIRC it will load it and all but then a couple seconds later it will disconnect me for no reason. The problem is i need to be in this channel of mIRC as much as possible. It keeps disconnecting me and it leaves my actual name in the thing, so i can't re-login to the channel if that makes sense. I dunno i think it may be because i by accident installed direct x 9 with a version of nero i got, i dunno it said i need 9 so i instaled it and then relized that i had 10 and the program was stupid, how do i uninstall 9 or use system resotre im new to vista thanks i need help ASAP!

Using System Restore (probably the best bet) is as simple as hitting the start button, and type "sys" - System Restore will show up in the start menu, click on it, try the recommended restore point first, next your way through and you're done!

Im having a problem with my windows XP pro computer. When I try to surf the web I can only access certain pages. I can get to google and yahoo and most search engines, when I perform a search the results show up but when I click any links I redirects me to random advertisement search engines. I cannot get to windows update or trendmicro ether it simply tells me it cannot be displayed and to check my internet connection. I have tried running several anti-virus and malware programs with no success. I have also run Hijack this and posted it on several different sites and fixed all problems suggested to me. No success, I am really getting frustrated with this and have been working on it for 8+ hours now. Can someone please help me!

Hey SenateKT.
First of all, do you have any kind of firewall turned on? Start by trying to turn it off, or looking under exceptions to see if the firewall is blocking your browser.
If that doesn't work try going to your browser and select settings/options/tools (whatever, depending on the browser) and try to see if the filter has any sites blocked.
If that does not work either, try installing spyware-doctor and ad-ware and running a scan with them.

I hope this has helped you,

Best Regards, Fred

Hey guys,

I just recently reformatted my computer. For some reason the load ups performance of it is ridiculously slow. And I mean SERIOUSLY slow.

My specs are:

i7 910 processor
6 gb ddr3 ram
2 500 7400 rpm hard drives.
gtx 460 graphic card
msi eclipse motherboard.
Any ideas? I'm trying to install the drivers but it's just going to take years at this pace.

Guys saw something weird today. I was helping this guy previously with a connection issue on his lap-top and it turned out to be a bad nic. He took it back to Best Buy and they replaced the motherboard and the thing is I went back today and setup his router and the weird thing was his nic didn't even show at all in device manager or anywhere.

I didn't have too much time to see what was goin on, but when I plugged in the cable to configure the router the nic popped up in device manager and was working just fine. When I unplugged the cable the nic disappeared again. Any Idea why this would be?

He had an HP lap-top I forgot the model number and he was running Vista Home Basic.

Ok this is pretty weird. Today I bought another 512mb stick of ram, ddr400 pc3200 like the other ram. I put it in after finding a setup my computer likes I turn the computer on. Run CpuZ. It tells me I have two stick of 512 equaling 1 Gb. So thats all good. But then I go into Control Panel/Sysem and it says I only have 512 mb of ram. I can't find anything to change and I already had it setup for 1 gb of ram and never change that, except taking the other 521 stick out for awhile.

Computer specs are below. I really don't even know if theres a problem.

For the past little while I have been having an odd problem with XP. Randomly XP will freeze up, I won?t be able to move the mouse or do anything - then about 10 seconds later everything will start working again. This happens randomly even when the PC is idle and has been going on for a while. Any suggestions?

I initially thought the hard drive cable was loose, but that doesn?t seem to be the issue.

I appreciate the help. Thanks.

I have links for IE, FF and others in the start menu. Initially, an IE lnk pointed to an invalid file and would not open IE.
I found 3 IE folders including IE8. I cleaned the system up and deleted the IE7 folder as clicking either EXE file opened IE8.
I replaced the shortcuts on the start menu, quick launch bar and desktop.
Everything seemed fine till the link in the start menu stopped working. Looking at the properties, it was now blank & grayed out.
IE opens with EXE file click and creating a new desktop LNK works.
A reboot brought back the start menu lnk - no longer blank and now functional - for a few min, the blank again.

This weirdness did not appear to affect FF shortcuts.

A serious virus scan has been run with Viprerescue. Webroot is the default AV program. Nothing but low level threats were detected.

What is happening?

I have an issue with static causing my computer to lose connection with the monitor. The computer remains running, but it has to be restarted to show up on the screen again.

It happens so frequently that I can't take it anymore. It happened some last winter, then stopped over the summer, and then got terrible in the fall through winter. I'm pretty sure it is just static because sometimes I barely touch the table (and get a shock) and the monitor instantly loses the picture. However, sometimes it happens just by me sitting down in my chair.

My setup is as follows: computer on carpeted floor. LCD Tv on plastic table with metal legs & rubber feet. I tried placing the computer on a cardboard box, as well as on the table itself...didn't work??

The computer always restarts when I push restart, and always re-recognizes the monitor, but it is such a pain.


A:Weird Static Issue

Change tables, ie, NOT plastic. In the dry air of winter static builds readilly and your rubber-footed table is a static heap, like a capacitor, because you have a charged field (carpet) and an insulating medium (rubber feet) and an ungrounded plate (table). Your comp is probably also isolated from the table via rubber feet so it either needs to be connected to the table so its' ground works for both or the table be connected to the mains ground.

Still going to get static from the carpet. Humidifiers help.

It may be possible that your Anti-Virus program is scanning the file/s in question, and has exclusive access for a while during the process.

you can also try running a disk check on the drive. Open Explorer

I have a NEC DVD Burner model ND-3520AW which has been burning both CDs and DVDs fine for the past 3 or 4 months but now it won't read any of the Data DVDs I burn even after reporting that they burned successfully.

* I have tried burning at 2x, 4X, 8X, & 16x.
* I have tried using Maxell DVD +R 8x and Memorex DVD +R 16x media
of which I had always used successfully in the past.
* The burner will read data DVDs that I burned several weeks ago and retail
DVDs of popular movies.
* The burner will burn and read data and music CDs
* I have tried using 6.016, 6.018 and Nero.v7.0.1.4b.Premium.Edition

I'm all out of ideas fellas. Can anyone offer any suggestions of what my issue might be at this point? Any thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Those Powersupplies are pretty dependable...You can't really go wrong with an Antec TruePower PS, especially a 430 watter. I wouldn't be looking there for your problem.

My guess is that it has more to do with your other could be any number of things.

Corsair is pretty good RAM, but you could try to reseat your sticks, or move them around a little.

Double check where all the case LEDs and power/reset wires connect to your motherboard. You might find a problem there.

Failing that, I would attempt to single out the problem by removing all extra on just the essentials, and see if the problem continues. If not, slowly add components until the problem resurfaces. If it doesn't resurface, good! If it does, then you know where the problem is coming from.

If the problem is still there after all that, then I'd probably point the finger at your motherboard itself. See if Soyo offers any kind of exchange or warranty on your board...If they value their customers, they'll have something.

ok so last night i went to sleep, and left my PC on because it was converting an avi to DVD for me.
I wake up in the morning and my computer is completely shut down.
I turn it on and see the black screen letting me know the PC was improperly shut down and found that weird.
when the computer finally booted a popup came up letting me know the computer recovered from an issue or something like that.
attached is my bluescreen dump.
any help is GREATLY appreciated.

It may be one of your applications, does your pc ever lag?

It looks like when a window is dragged around and it laggs it leaves something like that, and it can be "erased" with icons.

I turned on my computer today and my screen was acting a little strange. The monitor kept making this weird "rippling" effect. I checked all my connections and they seemed okay for the most part. A couple were a little loose. I still get a little rippling though. The system was fine yesterday and I didn't change any video settings since then. I believe that this has happened before but I think it just went away after 10 mins or so. Any ideas? It might just be something little like dust er something I don't know.

My sound runs flawlessly when i have some process going on (like disk cleanup, burning, etc.) If i have nothing going on, my sound is laggy and cracks. Anybody have an idea why?

This is on a Toshiba M45 S359 with latest audio drivers.

CPU throttling is most likely cause. Can be from a bios settings or Windows software you're running.

Ever since I upgraded to Firefox 33, the icons in my jumplist are broken (see attached image). I've cleared cache, etc., rebuilt icon file, and still get the same broken favicons. It's an annoyance more than anything, but I'm wondering if this is a PEBCAC (Problem Existing Between Computer and Chair), or something broken within the browser code itself.

Why not just try pinning those sites again?

A:I need help with a weird Networking issue!

heres the thing when I send a large file VISTA BOX --> SERVER at any speed it goes at the fastest possible speed! 10MB = 1.2MB/sec | 100MB = 9.8MB/sec
also if I transfer the file from the SERVER or my system to the VISTA BOX is transfer at about 3.5-8MB/sec but my system is very busy!Click to expand...

So what is the problem?

Do you have any firewall, antivirus, VPN, packet capturing software installed? Uninstall these one-by-one. Also, did you change the network cards on both the involved computers?

It could be that something is flooding your network. Connect the computers with a crossover cable and use some network monitor utility to make sure that only the file copying occurs and nothing else is moving acros the network.

Hey there

I really can't find what's causing this issue. Perhaps it's a lack of RAM, I don't know.. Anyway.

Every time I load a page or open a new window it makes my sound go in a slow motion style. It doesn't do it straight away when I boot up windows, it just randomly starts a few minutes afterwards.

Any idea's?

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Weird Sound Issue.

Could be from CPU throttling in the bios or a software loaded with Windows at boot.
