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.)

I have a Dell Latitude D630 and the motherboard died, It's out of warrenty so I bought a Motherboard on ebay. The Bios Service Tag does not match the number on the bottom so I would like to chage it to the correct one. How can I do this?

I read about a DST CD = Dell Service Technician CD that has this option but I can't find one.

It's not a real important thing but when I use the Dell System ID application it reads the Bios Service tag and not the real system tag that Is registered to me.

I have Windows XP SP3 installed on my desktop and suddenly my LAN/NIC is not receiving and sending packets from my network. The DHCP Client Services and TcpIP services wont start it gives error from the above.

From the device manager of non-plug and play drivers, the tcpip protocol driver, ip network address translator and netbios over tcpip has exclamation point. When I uninstall the drivers and start the services the connection is established but when I shutdown/restart the PC it will came back again the issue.

AFD is running

Below drivers are present in system32\drivers folder.

Any ideas?

I live in India. I have 12 computers in two workgroup (9 and 3), also I have two different broadband plans of 2mbps on both workgroup.

Now I want to join two networks which I can do with a switch (I think). the main issue is that if I joined the two workgroup in a single network how I can run internet on different workgroup separately. in other words I want different internet broadband lines to two workgroup and also want them in a single network.

I run a shop have 9 computers as a cyber and 3 computers for working on a government website. and I don't want that cyber system use bandwidth of those three computers and also want these 3 computers to be on network so that I can monitor them from 1 place.


A:Two diffrent Interet service on two workgroup in a network

The key to your issue is where the 9 systems vs the 3 get DHCP replies.
If the 3 systems go to one router, they will get a gateway address of that router AND each system will also get a DEFAULT route pointing to that gateway address.

Here's my IPCONFIG, showing the gateway

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

and the routing table that gets created with that connection; notice the line beginning with - - that's the default.

IPv4 Route Table
Active Routes:
Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric 20 On-link 306 On-link 306 On-link 306 On-link 276 On-link 276 On-link 276 On-link 306 On-link 276 On-link 306 On-link 276
You must make sure that the two routers have different addresses!!!

Then the 9 systems will have their own gateway and route tables.

Assuming the three systems have a router address of and the 9 systems use [the third digit is the number of systems just to make this discussion clear]

then your problem becomes to connect the two networks inside the routing tables of all systems.

MANUALLY, you add a route using
on the 9.system side
route ADD MASK 192.168.9.x METRIC 1​on the 3.system side
route ADD MASK 192.168.3.y METRIC 1​​That makes TCP see both sides but only resources specifically requested cross from one side to the other - - USING IP ADDRESSES. If you need print/file shares using names, you will need
to add them to the drivers\etc\hosts file everywhere and the shared systems need fixed addresses :sigh:

I am reluctant to lead you down this path UNLESS you are very experienced as this is considerable customization and will need to be well documented.

I sent my laptop in to be serviced under warranty because the keyboard would not work. was denied service because of water damage but now my screen doesn't work, can someone help

A:My screen won't turn on after service was denied on warranty due to water damage

Water can destroy a laptop or any other electronic device. Chances are that the water sat underneath the keyboard and flowed onto the motherboard where it dried causing corrosion and damaging the motherboard permanently. You could take the laptop to a repair shop and they could give you a repair estimate. Of course, you will have to pay for this repair. If a liquid is spilled on a laptop in the future, immediately open it and turn it upside down. This allows the liquid not to hit and pool on the motherboard, or in a keyboard

I saw someone mention something about going to the Registry Editor to remove dependencies but I couldn't figure out the registry (looked like lots of gobblegook to me) but since all of my dependent processes are running just fine, I don't think that would be the answer anyway.Click to expand...

You're absolutely right. DON'T try modifying the registry for this problem. Is far more likely to do damage then any good

A few thoughts...

1. I'd first attempt to simply uninstall then reinstall your audio drivers. To uninstall, look in Ctrl Panel->Program and Features and look for your audio to uninstall. Locate the driver download from the vendor website for your computer to reinstall

2. If reinstalling doesn't solve it Also, take a look at Reference Guide to Help Setup and Troubleshoot Windows Audio and Sound Cards

3. Tho I'll also mention that SOMETIMES malware can be what interferes with audio service and prevents it from running. I mention this to also keep in mind because you say Windows Update is also reporting errors. Both your audio and Windows update problem might due to malware.

In any case, try reinstalling first and post back with any results

Don't know if this is the right place for this question but I didn't see any other forum that might fit this question.

Does anyone have a RELIABLE hi-speed internet svc. that they can recommend for a rural area? My son lives in the San Antonio, Tx. area and is trying to move out to a rural location but is having difficulty in finding a reliable internet svc. He has to have the hi-speed svc. for his job requirements.
I know quite a few people use satellite but from what I hear they're just not that reliable.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.


A:Rural hi-speed internet service

Most good ones simply will not serve rural areas unless they can serve them well and take care of the repairs and maintenance. We like BlueSky for very rural areas...
In southern Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Texas, and New Mexico, there are no truly high speed services.
Just avoid Qwest, and avoid any contracts that require a one-year or two-year minimum. Sometimes you have to switch around to fix what is broken, and the long term contracts are awful. They turn you over to a collection agency if you attempt to protest the inadequate service. Qwest is one of those.

A:Service manual for Gateway M320

You likely do not need a service manual, nor would you benefit from one... if they existed... which they don't. Your Gateway m320 doesn't work any differently than a thousand other laptop computer models...
What you need is the correct part, and a great deal of skill using a cold solder technique, or flat soldering... most techs cannot do it, so somebody who asks for a service manual will not.

Get a GOOD and exprienced electronics technician or anybody very skilled in soldering techniques who also has the tools.
Otherwise, buying a new board will be faster and less costly.
If not in a living location where there are good techs, there are services to which you can mail it and get the repairs performed for $90 including shipping.

Ever since loading Windows Vista service pack 2, the sound isn't working.

This is on board sound, Asus M2N SLI NVIDIA nForce 560 motherboard.

Speakers work (tried on another computer.)

Control Panel --> Sound --> Properties - indicated everything is working properly.

--> Update drivers - indicates I am using the most updated driver.

C-Media website had nothing and I couldn't find anything on the Asus website.

Could use a little help.

I have just notice that my computer is no longer outputing any sounds whatsoever. It says that the Audio Device is not running but yet under Device Manager it says that the High Definition Audio Device is working properly and up to date.

I would appreciate any help I can get.... Also the USB port dont seem to recognize any external devices - Im not sure why that is.... Any help on this would be great as well.

This is one of those too many irons in the fire stories. I switch from DSL to Clearwire. In addition I brought another computer up. All the computers are running Windows 2000 Pro. Getting the Clearwire WiFi up was no problem. Getting all the computers to see each other in a workgroup is. The problem is "The server list for the workgroup is not available". I can work around that by either putting in the IP addresses for the Zoom ADSL X5 switch/router, or unplugging the patch cables and plugging them back in, and all the computers will see each other. Then I can't get to the web with any of the computers. My thought is since I'm not using the DSL on the switch. I need another switch with a dedicated port for the WiFi modem. Any recommendation?


A:Win2K browser service and Wi-Fi

First, be sure every system can ping ALL of the others using the IP-addresses; this proves TCP to be running correctly.

Second, make sure each system is using the same gateway address;
get a command prompt and enter
ipconfig /all
​If this is correct, then each should be able to ping www . google . com and the browsers should work

Next, make sure all systems are using the same WORKGROUP name

Its almost as if the files are playing fine just not showing me the picture . for instance if i use winamp to play the files it allows me to manipulate the windows as if there was a video playing and the winamp symbol disappears from the middle of it.

Video inspector confirms that all the codecs are there and theoretically its should play.

Dell D620 password

According to Dell and verified by a technician I know, every Service Tag is unique. It does not seem possible for a password to unlock more than one machine.
It is possible to render your laptop useless if you short the wrong pins. A better solution would be to post your Service Tag (from the "gray screen of doom.") It should look somthing like XXXXXXX-XXXX, where the X could be alpha or numeric. With that information a person with a master p/w generator could post the one you need.

Because I read somewhere that when you replace the eeprom chip on dell latitude's when you boot the computer with the new chip the computer explodes, that's suppose to happen because of some type of security measure, Dell has incase labtops are stolen.

Spent a good while "chatting" w/ NewEgg & Seagate - India about OEM vs "Retail" hard drives.

NewEgg clearly states on their site that many "OEM" Seagate internal drives drives have 5 yr parts & labor "Manufacturer's Warranty" (on the specific HDD specs page).

Seagate - India, tells me that drives designated as OEM will NOT have any warranty (or support) honored by Seagate to the end user.

For those w/ experience in this, what's the actual truth about OEM drives & warranties, from NewEgg or any other E-tailer?

A:Warranty difference OEM hard drive vs "Retail"

OEM you have to go by what the Manufacturer of company says as they're the one going to help you out. So OEM drives if you buy them from a vendor at a computer show they'll replacement for free. The vendor not the Manufacturer company. HDDs I just buy them wholesale and still get the protection from the manufacture. Unless NewEgg is going to protect after 5 years down the line, but you'll have to get that in writting..

Retail - Price is higher unless you get it on clearance then it would be the same price of OEM but you get protection

OEM - Price is cheaper low overhead
OEM - no hardware brackets
OEM - no retail box
OEM - no manual
OEM - no warranty (unless you a PC repair shop of PC vendor since you would buy in blunk)

On these types of monitors, they work on clip systems. It is just a matter of finding where all the clips are. When you do find them, take a small flat head (like in eye glass repair kits) and work your way around the grooves to see if you can find these clips. Once you have them all out, you should be able to take off the casing. Good luck.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me out with some data recovery. I have a harddrive, that was my secondary hard drive, and it stopped working. Windows wont even detect it (in the windows or the bios). the stuff i have on it is pretty important because I make movies. The hardrive is 300gb, but only has about 200gb on it. I got quotes as low as 100$that is if i provide the harddrive to transfer the data too. If anyone here does or knows of anyone that specializes in data recovery, it would be great! thanks alot -Nick

A:Help with data recovery? anyone offering a service?

if windows won't detect it and BIOS won't detect it, you'll need a professional company to do it. This will cost some money.

Dude, 2.5 GHz is pretty fast. Don't overclock. They may take the trick, but its against the law to do that, you could be in prison for a max of 3 yrs.

I have absolutely zero knowledge so please be gentle. I signed up for Comcast wireless and they installed it successfully. I have service with Vonage but of course I don't have it connected. What do I have to buy and what do I do to resume using Vonage. I have the original router that they provided when I signed up. I tried Vonage Customer Service for help but after multiple attempts, I am looking for help a little closer to home.

A:Home Computer Now Wireless; How Do I Reactivate Vonage Service

You must use broadband (either DSL, cable, or satellite). Then use the vonage router. To enable wifi in the house, add a wifi access point to the router on any point. Then establish your security settings. I have just done this myself recently.

Hey, I Just got an error after configuring my msconfig. Windows isnt detecting my creative soundblaster audio card, it worked fine yesterday. I wonder if I accidently unchecked the wrong thing out of my startup. I had my processes up to about 34 yesterday now they are down to about 25 and I cannot access my add hardware in control panel. I have alot of programs that are not running as well in my "services"(kinda like msconfig) (most are manual or disabled) in administrative tools. That were running yesterday. Just want to know if any of you know what could be the service that isnt running that is preventing my audio device from working. Please respond.

Ok, I am about to move with my brother to an apartment because it's our time to move out from our parents house. My parents house has dsl service, but we have no clue to get it or install it.

How would we get dsl in our new apartment?
All I know is

-Find a good ISP
-Order by phone or online at our parents house
-Install all these lines and filters and register an account

Can someone give up instructions please?

Cant get cable internet, it's too expensive for us.

A:Newbie question:getting dsl service

Hi, wallabing

welcome to the gang
most times the best bet is the main local phone co.
wher I am from it is verizon
I tried with 3rd party venders with special deals and most did not work right
even went so far as seperate line from independent (pentelecom)
business only subscription
verizon was the best for up time fast for my account
5 out of 10 for the modem that was 3 yrs ago
the modem software was for sh***t
but to install was wam bam
I used the filters on the phone lines only
used a router to replace the connection software
ask what routers they support first and buy one of those ,then they have to give tech support for it,or some kinda help anyways
verizon now has 715kb/s dsl for about 14.95 a month

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to this Tech forum but am frustrated and hoping someone can help.

Last night at 3am (and I've seen similar postings on google but no assistance), my computer ran an update (I know to now turn off auto updates)... As a result, I have lost all files I had in a back up folder connected to my old hard drive (new hard drive and link to old hard drive).

Just gone. All of my media files and pictures are missing. I did a system restore and it did nothing but did say the last update was a Service Distribution Service 2.0. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

A:Software Distribution Service 2.0 - Now lost all pictures, media files

This same update actually crashed my machine. I had to run a chkdsk /f in order to get it up and running again.

Perhaps your issue is similar, to run chkdsk, go to the Start Menu and select Run type chkdsk C: /f then click OK. Chkdsk might not be able to lock your drive for a scan and will prompt to run at next reboot. Just type Y press enter and reboot.
Substitute C: for the drive letter with the problem.

I have used 96mb of RAM without any problems, but when I try to use 128mb, the computer behaves strangely. When the POST screen loads and the memory test is running, the screen goes totally white except for the results of the memory test and it reboots. Anyone know what the cause of this might be?

I have a Dell Latitude CPx. The service tag and express service number has both been scratched up so that the only thing I can read is what appears to be CD??? for the service tag and 207-?24-3? for the express service number. When the machine is booted it is asking for a bios password, which I don?t have. The number CD0E6**-595B is displayed. I understand this is a conversion from the service tag. Is there anything out there that will convert the number back to either the service tag or express code?

A:Dell Express Service code

Did you try to call dell. Try letting your laptop battery dies out but don't recharge it. Wait about 5-10mins or more after the battery is dead. That might clear the CMOS. Not sure if this works with laptops as it works with desktop PCs.

Dear all:
I work as an IT specialist in a very "old fashion" company. Currently 80% above of our systems are something like Win XP Home. I guess you all can imagine how hard it is to maintain the systems before I convince the company to spend extra few thousand dollars to upgrade to Windows XP Professional.

Under such circumstance, it is best in my opinion to outsource critical operations for now, and email service is one of them! I heard a rumor that our current email service hosting company is having a financial problem, and might go bankrupcy anytime soon. I want to find another company to host our email server.

Can anyone of you recommend a good mail server hosting company? I'm currently located in LA. Our current Mail Hosting Company has Web-eMail access and auto reply service...

Thank you all very much =) :bounce:

A:Adding an ADSL connection as a service

Well I'm not sure about doing it that way, but I do know of a way you can do it in another way.

Go to your Network Connections and right-click on the DSL connection. Click Options and uncheck the options "Prompt for name and password" and "Prompt for phone number". This makes it so that when you click on your DSL connection it will automatically login without having to press ok even though your username/password is already in.

Now all you have to do is place the DSL connection in Programs/Startup. Once you restart your computer, the DSL connection will dial automatically when Windows is starting up.

I do this myself and it works fine.

I just did a clean install last night and everthing seems to be normal except for 1 thing. I installed my UPS, and it seems to be working fine. However , in the windows properties screen for the UPS, it has a message that says "UPS service is stopped", even though it says the computer is on AC power and the UPS works fine if I unplug the power cord from the wall. I have the UPS service set to "automatic". Is this message normal? I can't remember if it was like that before, I don't think I had that "ups service is stopped" message... thanks for reading.

It is normal for services to stop when they have nothing to do. Perhaps the UPS service is supposed to be running only when the computer is running on the UPS?

I am using a Windows XP Pro PC as a server/router in my LAN setup. I have an ADSL connection which requires a username and password. I created the appropriate network connection (profile). I know how to put it in the Start Up folder but that means that some user (admin) would have to log-in every time after a reboot. Is there a way to make that network connection profile a system service which would start-up automatically after the PC rebooted without any user having to log-in ? Thanks.

A:Adding a network connection as a system service

No, I don't think so. You could have it auto-login for you, but that's probably not what you are looking for. You also would have been much better off installing Windows 2000 Advanced Server, or better yet, a Linux OS to run as your server...
