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.)

A: Usb 3.1 adapter in a Z600 workstation

Agree.... that card should work in a Z600, but will it work to the USB 3.1 10Gbps speed standard? No. The HP Z600 workstation has no PCIe generation 3 slots. It has 3 PCIe Gen2 slots, 1 PCIe Gen1 slot, and 2 PCI slots. Below is a link to the HP page describing the Z600's slots: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01719695 Here is a note from StarTech regarding their card's speeds, emphasis added: "The maximum throughput of this card is limited by the bus interface. PCI Express Gen 1.0 max throughput is 2.5Gbps. PCI Express Gen 2.0 max throughput is 5Gbps. PCI Express Gen 3.0 max throughput is 10Gbps. The available bandwidth (10Gbps) is shared equally between the two ports." These USB 3.0/USB 3.1 PCIe cards generally need power supplementation.... the +5VDC they need does not come up from the slot, but it is easy to find a 4-wire "molex" peripheral-to-SATA power adapter which can provide you the higher wattage 5VDC they need to meet potential power draws (versus what USB 2.0 needs). All this info came from research figuring out how to add the Texas Instruments based HP USB 3.0 card to our xw6600 workstations, which have 2 PCIe Gen2 slots (the rest are Gen1). Z620 gives you some PCIe Gen3 slots.... slots 2,4 and 5. Here's the Z600 slots diagram:

Something like this but with a thin male connector. I need it to connect flash drives to a usb port where there's little space available around the usb port because the ports around are busy (happens in MacBook air for example).

To start off my laptop is an Asus G VW-AS The wireless network adapter is an Atheros AR WB-EG The issue I m having only starts when I play an online game It s not a specific one it happens with all my games After about a few matches I will begin to experience terrible lag spikes Ranging from - ms sometimes even going up to over Usually the spikes are permanent I will jump to around ping and hover in that general number with it occasionally sliding back down to my normal only to immediately spring back up again After this begins to happen any application I use that uses internet internet browser skype etc also lags is severely slowed down This lag is never experienced on any other system using our wireless internet which makes me believe it is in fact my laptop s wireless adapter that is the problem Doing a windows troubleshoot on the adapter DOES fix it but it only fixes it for about to minutes and then I begin to lag adapter network Problems with wireless again Also the troubleshooter seems to only be able to fix it once If I try to troubleshoot the adapter again after already fixing it before that way the troubleshooter will tell me that it couldn t find anything wrong Manually restarting the adapter only works once as well Restarting the computer does not help the problem If the laptop is shut down for a few hours and started back up the adapter will work properly as long as I do not start a game Could anyone help tell me how to stop this from happening Do I need to get a new adapter or is there something I can do for the current one nbsp

Hello First I want to say that my native language is not English If I have made any grammatical errors ask to be excused Recently I decided to improve my computer s video card and bought a GTX DirectCU Once I put it in my computer he began to beep and the card does not start at all I went to the computer service and asked what could be my problem There I was xw4600 and HP DirectCU GTX Workstation 660 told that most likely my power is insufficient So before I invest in new power want to ask - is it possible that the problem lies elsewhere In the end it was pretty old computer and there may be some incompatibility On the GTX 660 DirectCU and HP xw4600 Workstation net I found this The HP XW workstation motherboard and power supply are Proprietary GTX 660 DirectCU and HP xw4600 Workstation the power supply can t be upgraded with a standard ATX power supply Sorry The power supply is specific to that hp board Click to expand Spoiler My pc Power Supply watts wide-ranging active Power Factor Correction Efficient Computer Computer Type ACPI GTX 660 DirectCU and HP xw4600 Workstation x -based PC Operating System Microsoft Windows Home Premium OS Service Pack Service Pack Internet Explorer DirectX DirectX Date Time - - Motherboard CPU Type DualCore Intel Core Duo E MHz x Motherboard Name Hewlett-Packard HP xw Workstation Motherboard Chipset Intel Beachwood X System Memory MB DDR - ECC DDR SDRAM DIMM Micron HTF AY- E GB DDR - ECC DDR SDRAM - - - MHz - - - MHz - - - MHz DIMM Micron HTF AY- E GB DDR - ECC DDR SDRAM - - - MHz - - - MHz - - - MHz BIOS Type Compaq Display Video Adapter NVIDIA Quadro FX MB Storage Disk Drive ST AS GB RPM SATA-II Disk Drive WDC WD EZEX- BN A GB RPM SATA-III Optical Drive TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-H Q BIOS BIOS Properties Vendor Hewlett-Packard Version F v Release Date Size MB System BIOS Version Boot Devices Floppy Disk Hard Disk CD-ROM ATAPI ZIP LS- Capabilities Flash BIOS Shadow BIOS Selectable Boot Network Service Boot EDD BBS Supported Standards DMI ACPI PnP Expansion Capabilities PCI USB Virtual Machine No From my research so far my power supply should be enough for this video card nbsp

A:GTX 660 DirectCU and HP xw4600 Workstation

My best opinion as to why you are having problems is incompatibility. Looking at the chipset for your motherboard (Intel Beachwood X38), it is linked for a PCI Express slot version 1.1. The Geforce GTX 660 DirectCU is a PCI Express 3.0 card. Not all PCI Express 3.0 cards will work in a PCI Express 1.1 slot. Multiple people have had problems with said issue. If you are looking for better compatibility, I would suggest getting a PCI Express 2.1 (or 2.0) video card. You will have less issues getting it to work properly.

This mobo got me wondering, packs alot of specs :
18 SATA ports (10 are SATA3 ports from the Intel X99 Express chipset, 8 are SAS ports stemming from the LSI SAS 3008 controller) and five PCI-E 3.0 x 16slots for 4-way graphics cards! 600$ motherboard for some serious business, I think this would be ideal for a video editing workstation..

Here again since I have the most weird problem ever which I have never seen nor heard of before. I recently upgraded the OS on a friends computer, from Vista to 7. However now I can't seem to get the onboard ethernet adapter to work, it can't be seen in device manager nor anywhere else. I have tried to reset the bios (by removing the cmos battery) and I have also checked that the network adapter is set to 'Enabled'. Also, when I connect the cable to the ethernet port no lights go on, it doesn't give any sort of hope what so ever. The cable is ok, the "modem" is ok, and everything else seems to be in order and yet it doesn't work.

Computer in question:
HP Pavilion 6530sc
Non-default GPU and added 1Gb RAM
 

A:Solved: Computer doesn't recognize the network adapter

Whenever you install a new OS, always take note of the model of core system hardware like GPU, chipset, and ethernet/wifi (there are a few others that aren't as important, but nice to have updated) since those are critical to your computers core functionality.

However, a quick google search of your model yielded me with your PC's system specs. Your PC contains a Realtek RTL8201N ethernet adapter. So far I am unable to find a driver from Realtek itself and the HP driver is not Realtek, but instead nVidia nForce.

So after a bit of searching, I came across this: it seems to me that you have an old chipset from nVidia. I am not completely sure, but I think you have an ION chipset. Try installing this ION chipset driver (64 bit) ==OR== this ION chipset driver (32 bit) and tell me if it works. It should include the necessary component drivers and if it works, it means you have an ION chipset like I suspected.

Here are the specifications for your PC BTW.

I have a HP 650 notebook that is in ok condition with Windows 8 OS. It uses a Ralink 3290 wireless adapter for my wi-fi needs. For the past three months, my adapter has been vanishing! I look at the indicator in my bar, and it shows no device available. I open up the Network and sharing Center and select the change adapter settings, and the only thing showing is an ethernet connection that I don't use. I can sometimes get the adapter to return by using the find and fix devices option on the search menu, but sometimes even that doesn't work. I've even been getting the "This device cannot find enough free resources (code 12)" message for the Ralink PCIe from the troubleshooter. while I did see an article on this elsewhere, I had some trouble understanding it. Can anyone help me figure out why this is happening to my laptop? Thanks for any help you can provide.

I recently bought a powerline adapter to combat my slow wireless speeds and planned on using it for my PC and XBOX 360 when I occasionally use it. The PC install was easy, it was plug and play no problems just installed the latest MSI ethernet drivers and BAM! Wired network, no problem, but today I come home and I felt like playing some GTA Online, so I unplugged the cable from my PC and into the XBOX and it can't connect. I am using a TP-Link AV500 Nano powerline adapter and a BT Home Hub 4 router. I also made a quick video to demonstrate my problem. As mentioned in the video I can use the internet just fine on my PC, the only problem is with the XBOX.

Hi everyone

I have HP dv7 2015tx running windows 7 (64bit) and I have serious problem with wifi connectivity. in last few months the wifi connection started to malfunction and randomly detect and connect to hotspots. and then it stopped working completely after a while. I tried:

-reinstalling, upgrading .... the wireless driver
-using wifi dongle
-replacing the wifi card with a new one
-.....
and I found these can not help me in this issue. the same thing happened to my blutooth connectivity last year and after I reinstalled the windows it was all fixed. but this time im not planning to reinstall the windows again.
So in my point of view this problem might be fixed if I fix the way windows is detecting any wifi access !! is there any file missing in windows related to this ?!!


Please help me in this matter

I then went into my device manager and it said there also that my wifi adapter was not working properly.
Curious what could be causing this? Is my wifi going bad? Virus? I stayed at a hotel and connected to their unsecure wifi two nights ago if that means anything. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!

And on a side note, I started to get this message at least two months ago every time I turned my computer on. Not sure if it's related but:

Hey guys. On my raid, I have two 120mm fans that are four pin females. I want to control them on my cooler-masters fan controller. In order to do this, I will need to convert the pins to three pin.

The most cost efficient way is to have the splitter first then the converter. Two cables instead of Three.

The problem I am having is that I cannot for the life of me find a male four pin to a three pin female connector.

Amazon and Ebay has failed me. (only offers 4 pin molex to three pin. Not what I need.)

Where do I find one of these cables?
 

A:Male 4 pin to female 3 pin fan adapter

If you are connecting them to a fan controller the fourth pin does not matter so much.

Its a PWM pin that allows your motherboard to control the speed of the fan. Since you will not be using the motherboard headers you will not need it. You can just offset the connector in the socket.

What model is your fan controller?

A:Want to buy a workstation for video and 3d

I would not go for an Opteron processor as they are meant more for servers than desktops. For a build like this, you would either be looking at the AMD 8350 flagship or an Intel I7 4xxx.. The main difference is that Intel is faster on single-threaded tasks (that is the major difference), but AMD is ever so slightly faster on some multi-threaded tasks...

Would you be willing to build the computer yourself?

Something like a pcmcia adapter? I'd get a wireless adapter that can do b/g/n or g/n instead. That way, if you upgrade your router to a faster model, you would still be able to use the adapter. If you're going w/ the pcmcia adapter, check the vendor's site to see if they have driver for your OS. The one I linked doesn't say support for Win7, if that's what you use.

A:Best Graphic Workstation

Well, having 2 Xeon E5s with a weak GPU and little RAM means the PC is aimed at computing tasks, not graphic design. Would you mind building your own machine? It allows for more customization is cheaper, and has a much wider range of options. I am also more familiar with building custom workstations rather than prebuilt (Dell, HP, etc.) workstations. Would you like to build your own or stick with Dell or HP?

Hello

when I turn on laptop see this black screen !

I hear windows 7 start sound and sure windows load

I test by VGA cable with another monitor and see black screen at another monitor too

I think GPU down !

Do you think same ?

what Graphic adapter I can put for Dell XPS M1530 again? ( cheaper )

Thanks a lot
 

A:Graphic adapter for Dell XPS M1530?

You cant replace graphics cards for laptops. But I may have a solution. I would have first thought that this was a screen issue, but when you hooked it up to another monitor that idea was gone. I get this every once and a while when a graphics drivers isnt that great. What graphics adapter do you currently have?

Good day to all!

Can a ZOTAC GTX 650 TI run on HP z820 workstation?
If so, can 2 VC run 4 52" LCDs?

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!
 

A:Can a Zotac GTX 650 TI run on HP z820 workstation?

Well may I ask why you want a 650ti to be paired with a $2500 dual Xeon monster? Since you have a workstation, I am guessing you do Photoshop or Autocad. Plus what do you mean "VC"? Also, I dont think your TV has DVI inputs nor display ports, only HDMI. Unfortunately the 650Ti only has 1 HDMI.

I am running Windows bit retail on an Intel DX SO extreme mobo with i CPU and Corsair SATA SSD hard drive with GB KIngston DDR RAM The mobo comes with a module that connects to an internal USB header which runs Bluetooth and a WiFi bgn wireless adapter I had used Bluetooth without problems for some time but just recently decided to install the WiFi adapter for the first time It said it had installed successfully and showed up on Device Manager as working properly However it could not detect networks and in particular the WiFi external modem router on my other PC After exhausting all possible solutions I decided to load a bare bones installation of Windows and it installed and ran perfectly in this environment And it continued to run OK after all my various programs were loaded However as a test I uninstalled it from the fully loaded OS and then successfully reinstalled it But once detect Intel networks adapter wireless won't again it could not detect networks despite Device Manager saying it was working correctly So it seems the only way to get it to work is to load it on Windows before any other programs or updates are added and never uninstall reinstall I also had exactly the same experience on my other PC which Intel wireless adapter won't detect networks runs Vista Ultimate OEM I was using a Belkin N adapter on this OS It could only be loaded and run successfully on a bare bones installation but once running was OK even when all other programs were added Has anyone got any suggestions on how to fix this problem nbsp

A:Trouble using dual monitors with an adapter/splitter

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.

I tried looking around for a solution but can't seem to find anyone with a similar issue to mine. I just bought an ASUS usb n53 wireless adapter. I was previously using a Rosewill wireless adapter just before I installed the new one and everything with my connection was fine. After I downloaded the drivers off the disc and tried to open the utility program for the adapter I get this message: Wireless Lan Control Manager has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Not sure what I need to do at this point. Thanks in advance for the help. Just let me know any info you need for me and I'll post back asap.

HI, Ive been tring to fix someones computer over the past week, and have ran into countless issues with it lol.

recently someone on this forum help me clean the malware off of it (we are still in the process of cleaning it up) and I noticed that the network adapter continually disables itself. I have only been able to observe this change if I let the pc sit for over 5-10 minutes, then when I come back, the internet has been severed, and I asm unable to reconnect. The only way I am able to reconnect is through a full reboot.

I tried modifying the services under regedit to automatically restart if the service is stop for some reason.


thank you for the help

Hi All,

Recently my roommate moved out and I had to get my own internet service. Prior to the change my D-Link DWA-125 was working fine. After the change I can see the network; however, I couldn't connect. I decided to re-installed the driver and now it's not picking up any network. All other wireless devices are connected. So it's not the signal. The driver is updated.

Also I tried installing another wireless usb adapter and it's the same result. While installing the driver I would get a message saying I aborted the installation and the adapter can not be found. I can see it in the "device manager". Could it be a firewall or virus program preventing it?

Your help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
 

A:Wireless USB adapter isn't picking up my network

Please uninstall all the drivers and if they don't successfully uninstall all the way I recommend you downloading something called Driver Fusion from the following site: http://treexy.com/products/driver-fusion

and it will completely wipe all traces of the wireless adapters and then you will need to re-install the latest versions of the adapter drivers and see if that helps.

Is this normal for others? I was thinking is the network adapter in sleep mode or something? Maybe that's why it takes a while to connect?

Any ideas appreciated,

Does anyone know what the 775 limitations are on this board? I can't access the CPU support and Im not sure of the 45/65nm support? I want to upgrade just the cpu on an old workstation to give 64bit support for more RAM (which I already have). I'd like to put the E5700 Wolfdale in but again, not sure. If anyone can recommend the top 3-4 processors that I can use it would be mucho appreciated.

A:CPU upgrade for workstation

It's not capable of utilizing more than 2GB of RAM, so not sure how you'd potentially need 64-bit to address what it can handle now.

I'd look at upgrading personally, compared with today's technology that motherboard is woefully inadequate and by the looks of things only supports very early LGA 775 processors anyway. You essentially be throwing money at obsolete technology.

My wife wants to run her hair straightener (flat iron) in the car during long trips.
Can this item pull too much juice and harm the car or battery?
 

A:DC to AC car adapter, can you pull too much juice?

It would depend on the power rating (wattage) of the straightener - if you pull more than about 130 - 150W through the average car wiring, either the fuse blows or the insulation starts melting/burning! (also I would suggest not running anything mightier than 100W for more than 10 minutes per session, then cooling it off a bit).
I trust that your wife won't be driving? ;-)

Is there a maximum length for the dc cord? In other words why do they locate the adapter 1/2 way down the cord instead of closer to the outlet.

Is the small cylinder around the cord about 3" before it enters the laptop some sort of choke/filter?

Thanks.

There is no particular reason for this, either side of the power supply could be lengthened or shortened.

A:Wireless USB adapter not picking up connections

running (or leaving enabled) both wired and wireless frequently causes problems,
so if you're committed to WiFi, disable the wired NIC in the device manager.

you're also running IPv6, so must be on Vista or Win/7. Configurations are
easiest to manage if you disable IPv6.

Use Google and search for "disable IPv6" and follow the instructions for your system {Vista, Win/7} and disable ALL IPv6.

Reboot and try again.

Hi guys!

Recently, my laptop (Compaq Presario CQ50) battery passed away and unfortunately, the day after, the same thing happened to my AC adapter. Actually, the adapter itself works perfectly, except for the socket inside the laptop.

It seems this part is loose and no power can now reach my laptop. I don't care running my laptop only plugged to the wall outlet since I'm using it only in the living room. It's old and the replacement battery is quite expensive (I could not charge the battery without a working ac adapter anyways).

I was wondering if it was possible to buy only the socket and also how to replace it?

Looks OK, but I'd change the case to a Coolermaster HAF912 (if you don't want full tower, or HAF X, or a HAF932, all of which are cheaper than your current Antec LanBoy, so will save money. The HAF912 is only $49.99 after the mail in rebate (or $10 more without) which is frankly a huge saving on that Antec.

I'd also change your hard disk to a 1TB samsung Spinpoint F3, or if purely for storage needs, upgrade to a 2TB Samsung Spinpoint F4. You could actually run 2x 1TB Spinpoint F3's (in RAID) for the same money as your single 1.5TB.

I am going into my fourth year of architecture school and I am building a desktop. I plan on using my system for Adobe cs5, CAD, Revit, 3ds max, Maya, Ecotect, Virtual Enviroment, Rhino, and Grasshopper. I am having trouble deciding on a graphics card. Is it necessary to have a workstation graphic card to do 3d modeling with these programs? If so, what type of card would you reccomend, Nvidia or ATI?

List of requirements given by the school:
Intel Core? i7
12 GB+ Memory
2TB Hard Drive
Dual 20"+ monitors
DVDRW Drive
Dedicated ATI or nVidia video adapter with at least 1-2GB memory
Wireless Network Adapter
Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
 

A:Workstation graphic cards vs. consumer cards

The last question is the easiest - I would go with nVidia because their CUDA processing engine accelerates many of the applications you use. I know Adobe CS5 and Maya take advantage of it but don't know about the rest of the applications you listed.

Adobe CS5 added acceleration for multiple applications with the Mercury Playback Engine which is designed specifically for more recent nVidia cards with the CUDA feature set.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/adobe-cs5-cuda-64-bit,2770.html

Third party review and recommendations for use with CS5 (the card list starts about half way down the page)

http://www.studio1productions.com/Articles/PremiereCS5.htm

CUDA (see more info below about CUDA) supported graphics cards (note that the GeForce or mainstream and gamer cards (for desktop and laptop PCs) are listed near the bottom of the page:

http://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus

nVidia provides information touting how much their cards accelerate Adobe CS5, including general description about CUDA with internal links to more info for advanced users:a

http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_home_new.html

Here are a couple of reviews on workstation cards you might find informative:

Workstation Shootout: Nvidia Quadro 5000 Vs. ATI FirePro V8800
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/quadro-5000-firepro-v8800-workstation-graphics,2701.html

AMD FirePro V9800 4 GB: Eyefinity Meets Professional Graphics
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/firepro-v9800-eyefinity-quadro-5000,2780.html

The choice between workstation vs. gaming cards is a little more difficult. The higher end gaming cards are very similar to the lower end gaming cards, the difference is primarily in the drivers and service. Workstation drivers have been more finely tuned to the kinds of work done in WS applications - but this can have a signficant impact on performance for those applications. Morever, with the higher price you pay buys you better, generlly quicker support for dealing with issues.

I think the choice must depend on how and how much you use the cards. If you use the applications for several hours a day, the higher productivity of the workstation station cards may pay for the higher cost several times over. Otherwise you might do just as well with the gaming cards.

If you decide to go with gaming cards, you might find some helpful information on upgrading video cards at upgradevideocards.com, but they have no information on workstation cards:

A:Fresh XP installed, need help getting the network adapter to work

If you look under Device Manager when on Win 7 you should be able to get the name of the wireless card. And then do a search for XP drivers for that device. You will also need the chipset drivers for the motherboard for XP, those should be available from the manufacturer's site.

16-24 GB will probably be enough, but it really comes down to the size of your models and how much multitasking with these apps you will be doing. Take a look at your current memory usage on your current rig by watching Taskman to get an idea.

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.

A:Maxtor D740X-6L IDE-> USB adapter question

It might be already damaged when you are trying to re-use it.

Did you check the health status of the hard drive? You might be able to check them, using the third party, such as HDD Health.

HDD Health v3.3 Build 220 Beta

HDD Health is a full-featured failure-prediction agent for machines using Windows 95, 98, NT, Me, 2000 and XP. Sitting in the system tray, it monitors hard disks and alerts you to impending failure. The program uses Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) built into all new hard disks, and can predict failures on your hard drives. A host of alerting features include email, local pop-up messages, net messages, and event logging, while using no system resources.Click to expand...

I have been using this handy tool on few of my older hard drives in my rigs. Just remember to run it as administrator, else it'll not be able to communicate with your hard drive(s).

Edited: Your attempt on bridging the old hard drive to USB might be visible to HDD Health drive listings as well...

You might also want to google on files recovery programs too, as there's a few easter eggs out there.

So i have an hp pavilion tx 2500 tablet with a ati hd 3200 graphics card
every time i start the laptop i would get to the desktop and then it would go black.
So i went in in safe mode and worked fine so i knew it had to do with the drivers so i disabled the display adapter in the device manager and restarted and it worked.
When i went to re install the drivers it did the same thing.
I used a latter driver and it worked for 2 days and then black screen when i use an older driver it last a few days when i use the new updated drivers it goes black if i leave it disabled it will run for ever do you think it is my card itself.Which would really suck since i would have to buy anew comp instead of dishing out 400 on a mobo
 

A:Have to disable display adapter or I get black screen

I think your card is probably OK or you would have a constant black screen. Did you uninstall the card in device manager before you installed a new driver?

Follow this guide to remove any redundant drivers from the system, uninstall the graphics drivers in Device Manager and then install the new driver. Did you get the driver from the manufacturers site? if not then go there for the latest driver.

A:Wireless Network adapter disconnects then cant find networks help!

How is your signal strength? If you haven't already, you could try using a 3 foot USB extension so you can move the dongle to a more favorable reception position. If that doesn't help, just get a new one. I use one of these for one of my PCs and they seem to tend to fail after awhile.

I'm using a Rosewill USB adapter now and that one has been the most reliable so far.

if you would do that you could either save by not getting a hdd altogether from dell or use the 7200rpm that it comes with as storage drive

Hello again, guys.

The computer we built is running in tip-top shape except for one problem that just started popping up. Whenever I start the computer it will say it is connected to home and an "unidentified network" but will completely cut-off my access to the internet.

I'd do some troubleshooting of my own and I'd find that the network adapter was disabled and the issue wouldn't get fixed until I disabled said "unidentified network" and enabled the adapter.

This a wireless adapter, correct? Did you set it to receive your secured router signal?

A:Standard VGA graphics adapter help needed

You didn't state the problem very clearly but if I guess, I'd say you neglected to install the graphics driver. If so, I'd guess that you may have forgotten to install the chipset, sound and LAN drivers too.

hi guys,

i have installed a usb wireless adapter to my desktop. from that moment the wireless network icon will appear and disappear at the task bar. if i check the device management and take the property of the wireless adapter first it will show "the device is working properly" , then " there is no driver installed for this device"... this is happening in seconds. the wireless adapter realtek rtl8197 made by alfa. i tried with another adapter which is also showing the same thing.

my system is amd sempron3000, with 1gb memory. operating system is windows xp. what could be the problem? xp or board.
 

A:Weird problem with wireless adapter

Try removing the USB adapter. Uninstall the adapter driver/software bundle. Restart the PC. Install the USB adapter driver/software bundle BEFORE plugging in the USB adapter. After installing the driver, then insert the USB adapter. Let Windows find the adapter and install the driver to it. See if that helps.

I've been trying to use my MicroSD card adapter in my laptop's SD card slot, but it won't even read or recognize that it is there. I've tried and external SD reader and that won't work either.

I have purchased a Belkin Surf&Share wireless usb adapter. It worked for awhile but all of a sudden it wont let me connect to the wireless internet. I am using the adapter on my desktop that has windows XP and connecting to a neighbors internet. when i open the connection it either says it has security or when i click connect it just says "identifying network type" for hours and hours. i know that the connection is not security enabled because i am using it on my lap top right now to type this. please help me.
 

A:Belkin wirelss adapter problems

If still under warranty, or a purchase agreement, return it for a replacement...
Otherwise, you will be fixing it over and over until you trash it...
Alternately, you should try a quick fix, but totally removing the Belkin Software, using a registry editor if necessary to get all of the old install removed.
Then reboot, and reinstall.
Some folks on TechSpot love Belkin... But we find theire are sometimes differences from model to model, and from which part of which country they are purchased.
Belkin does not manufacture these units, as I understand their system, but has them built and packaged under contract. And the ones we get in for repair vary a lot.
If you can trade it for another brand, from where you purchased it, you might be able to expect better luck.

Wasn t sure where this would follow under category so since it regards my video card I ll ask here Ok here is my situation I got my video card a very nice one that fits in the PIC-E slot on my new build now after dealing with the front panel connectors which at first were confusing been a very long time since i had to do that stuff I tried to turn it on and well the fans spun for about - seconds and stopped So i tried different ideas from friends and nothing and then realized the PCI-E cable form the PSU was not plugged into the motherboard well that is where my problem for Need some looking adapter a PCI-E help seems to be The motherboard has a typical pin Pci-e connector well the cable from Need some help looking for a PCI-E adapter the power supply is a pin So I need to find from what i gathered from a friend an adapter for the pin to convert it to a Now I looked on newegg and they only oddly had one shown and the reviews were not that good most saying the cable was not the right cable So with that in mind anyone know a place to get an adapter I as well as my friends who helped save for one found it odd that the cable is a pin For further help to anyone who reads here is teh key components in this matter Motherboard is a Nforce m-A Video card is a EVGA Nvidia Geforce Gt with gb o f ram DDR Pci-e PSU is a Ultra watt ATX Also all items are under warranty but from what i was told it should not matter I should be able to get a adapter to use all this nbsp

A:Need some help looking for a PCI-E adapter

That 4 pin connector on the motherboard is not a PCI-E power connector, rather, it is a 4 pin ATX 12V that helps power the CPU. PCI-E power connectors are either 6 pin or 8 pin (or 6 + 2) and are intended to be connected to a graphics card, not the motherboard.

All modern ATX PSUs should have a 4 pin ATX 12V connector. Some have an 8 pin ATX 12V connector that, in reality, is two 4 pin connectors stuck together. Double check and see if you can find the 4 pin connector. It might even be labeled as ATX 12V. It has to be there.

I have a Dell Inspiron 9100. I have checked the adapter/charger and it is putting out he correct 19V.

However, the LED lights on the battery do not indicate anything. After charging for 10 hours, I push the power button and nothing happens....no screen activity, whirling, noise, etc.

I have tried starting with adapter connected and not connnected.

Could a battery be so dead that the computer will not turn on?

Or is it the MB or bios?

Thanks.
 

A:Dell will not start, power adapter okay

Try removing the battery and starting the laptop using only the AC adapter. If you still get nothing, the motherboard is most likely bad

looks like DHCP is not being found (ie 169.254.67.214 is the clue)

make sure your firewall is active and that ports 67-68 are allowed

I just installed Windows 7 64-bit from Vista(32 bit) and I'm having a bit of trouble getting my wireless network adapter up and running. The model number is WMP54GX from Linksys. I've googled the issue and most people have suggestions, but the problem is my computer isn't even registering the adapter. There is nothing under network adapter and under unidentified devices there is only "Ethernet Controller" "PCI Simple Communications Controller" and "Unknown Device". I tried searching for drivers online (connecter via an extremely long ethernet cable at the moment). Most people suggest using Ralink drivers and installing after an unknown "Network Adapter" shows up, but for me no even this is happening. Are one of the other options the network adapter?

Specs: (Don't know if they'll help but can't hurt)
Windows 7 Enterprise N
Intel core 2 Duo 6400
4GB RAM
Nvidia 8800 GTS
 

A:Wireless adapter issues

Wireless setup....

You have a wireless modem/router? Do you have a wireless 'g' or 'n' card in PC? or a USB wireless adapter? Both of those will need to have software installed, but you will have got that on a cd included. But you have to do the setup with the Ethernet (CAT5e) connected first. When you have followed the instructions that came with the modem /router, you switch off PC, unplug Ethernet cable, switch on PC, and the Wireless adapter in PC will find ALL the wireless modem/routers in your area. You select yours from the list, and enter the password, you will be connected to your own modem after that.

I have installed Hamachi2 on my buddies computer with a OS - Windows 7 and Norton software. After the installation is complete I can see him in our network but can't access him. Through some investigation we found that the Hamachi2 adapter was not installed in the device manager or the network sharing screen. What is the process to get the adapter to install?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

9/13/10
We finally determined that the network connection adapter was corrupt. We uninstalled the adapter in the device manager and rebooted to let Windows 7 find it. When the system came up there was a error message trouble installing the adapter. We did a clean install of Windows 7 and both networks showed up in the device manager and the network and sharing screen, problem solved.

A:Dog ate Logiq M76T power adapter

Definitely start with the adapter. Once you rule that out as the culprit you can move on the the psu or motherboard.

I posted this on another forum and I m hoping to get your opinion before dealing with this problem Wrong AC adapter I got a call about ten days ago AC Wrong Adapter quot My Wrong AC Adapter laptop quit Wrong AC Adapter working while it was plugged in quot She brought the machine to me and I agreed it wasn t working and we agreed on a price to remove the HD and copy the files and handle the warranty return to ASUS and what ever software requirements were necessary when it was returned I called ASUS who had me test the adapter for power output Yes and I then boxed it up and mailed it to ASUS As I recall the adapter was labeled for V W which seemed about right for a laptop She called me a day or so later saying she may have given me the wrong adapter as she d found one labeled quot ASUS quot In the meantime ASUS has replaced the motherboard and the adapter and is returning the machine Now no one has ever supplied me the wrong adapter for their equipment before and this adapter fit the socket perfectly so I m wondering if this is something I should have caught She s being unpleasant about paying anything other than the shipping even though she admits it was her fault for supplying the wrong adapter For all I know the use of the wrong adapter may have fried the motherboard and ASUS isn t saying anything about a wrong adapter being sent So would you have caught this discrepancy Has any one ever supplied you the wrong adapter with a laptop or other equipment nbsp

A:Wrong AC Adapter

Like you I have clients who bring broken equipment into the wksps for repair - and like you I get the clients who through stupidity or genuine error bring the solution to the problem with them!
Laptop PSU's vary enormously and I have always said that cheap replacement PSUs are a mistake - rarely do they shove out the required watts/volts/amps and more often than not do not overheat as well.
I suggest that what has happened here is that the client has lost the PSU, gone and bought a new one which broke the power management board in the laptop, brought it all to you and then found the original PSU.
Asus UK would not have repaired this - but then they are not a credit to Asus, who do make good kit!
