Preferred Solution: Gateway NE56R wifi doesnt work at home after windows 8.1 update

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.)

THIS IS A NEW~ISH (1yr) LAPTOP FROM GATEWAY.  GATEWAY NE56R My wireless speeds are not up to par. The GATEWAY website sends me to ACER to download a network driver from their site.ACER website DOES NOT RECOGNIZE or SUPPORT GATEWAY COMPUTERS!!THIS IS RIDICULOUS! HOW IS ANYONE SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT GATEWAY WOULD NO LONGER HAVE ANY TYPE OF SUPPORT?? I WOULD NEVER HAVE BOUGHT THIS IF I HAD KNOWN. if anyone can help me, please reply?

Not the expected POST beep or anything like that.
When I plug in/unplug the power adapter, there is a beeping from the computer.
Now, if I plug in headphones and do this, it beeps through the headphones.
Muting the sound also mutes the beep.
There is no "PC Speaker" setting for me to mute.
There isn't the Non-PnP devices in the Device Manager to disable the "Beep" device.
I've gone through all of my Window's sounds. No change.
I've had a few Gateway support chats and they told me to either mute the aforementioned PC Speaker or to disable the speaker in the BIOS.
Checked the BIOS and there's no option.
Anyone have this problem? Anyone know what I can do to solve this?

If you haven't solved this yet. You could try locating the sound being played and delete the sound file located C:\Windows\Media

Hi i have Windows 7 ultimate 64bit and XP Pro 32bit, and here is my issue: i have a huge network and i have to set my IPs
IPv4:
IP Adress 10.100.150.200
Subnet M: 255.255.128.0
Gateway: 10.100.20.1

DNS: 10.100.0.3

This settings work on all XP OS but doesnt work with all Windows 7. It works for 5-10 min then it says no connection. After set IP it works then doesnt work. If i ping 10.100.20.1 -t it pings as much as i want until i stop and if i restart ping it doesnt work, while first ping i can access to internet after stopping the ping no internet also, That win 7s works with normal ip configurations like: ip:192.168.0.10 gateway: 192.168.0.1

So any1 have any idea what it could be? Does windows 7 have problem with different gateway problem? or is it a bug?

Thanks for any reply..

You haven't mentioned the type of router you are using for this connection but it may help to update the router's firmware to the newest version if possible.

I just reinstalled 8 on a ssd and tried to install 8.1 from the store but it says i need to update windows first. I tried running windows update but i get an error saying "Windows could not search for new updates" error code 80240440. I tried everything I could find online and nothing seems to work. I tried restarting windows update, i tried turning off firewall, I tried reinstalling windows again and selecting "check for updates online" before installing from the cd, i tried running a check disk, and there is absolutely no program installed on the drive other than windows. I think this is absurd and insane, i've never had so many problems with an operating system before, especially for something so basic as an update utility. Can anyone help me out?

I really dont know how to solve it and i prefered not reinstall system.

Thanks for your help!

A:Windows Update 8007370D - sfc /scannow doesnt work

We still need the SFC results in the CBS.log (or CBSPersist files) - it should help us work out why SFC failed - it wasn't in what was uploaded.

You had fairly massive corruption when you first ran CheckSUR back in March - it fixed everything apart from the current error at that time.

I'll post a fix protocol for the manifest problem soon.

I purchased a new notebook with Windows 7 in October. During the first weeks I uninstalled McAfee and replaced the harddrive. Since November Windows Update fails with error messages and defender does not start anymore. I made several virus scans (complete) with multiple antivirus programs but nothing showed up.Since it took my days to install various software, I do not want to re-install W7. I also have no good backup that I could restore. I am really surprised that there is not even a single entry regarding the error code in the Microsoft Knowledge base or elsewhere.I really would appreciate help.

My LapTop is HP Pavilion dv7-6157cl

I've tried 3 times to make the Windows Update Ralink RT5390 802.11 b/g/n/ Wifi Adapter with Drive Date 11/14/2012 and Ver 5.0.8.0 that's on the update site now but it does not work. So I've reverted back to the former adapter each time, including now.

My current adapter is drive date 9/7/2012 and Ver 5.0.3.0. This one works fine.

Also each time I tried to update I kept getting the message that my DNS settings had been changed. Did I want to keep current settings or change to new settings. This is also confusing.

Any ideas what's up with this obvious screw up from Microsoft or Ralink?

Welcome myousaf42 to the windows 7 forum.

What you need to do is to use another computer and go to the hp site for your laptop support and download the drivers
for your wireless network card. put it on a flash drive and then install it on your laptop.
should work fine.

You were able to get on here so I assume you have another computer to use to download the drivers.

There was a power outage in my apartment last night and my laptop was plugged in at the time. Now when my power cable is plugged into my laptop I cant receive wifi!! Ive double checked and whenever the laptop is just running on batteries it can receive wifi. This is so weird and Im worried the power outage broke something inside my laptop.

The laptop is am Acer Aspire 5100 and the wifi is a Linksys router.

Thankyou, thank you, thank you in advance!

A:Wifi doesnt work when power cable plugged in to laptop

Perhaps something has happened to the power adaptor. If you can find an identical adaptor with the same voltage and amperage output, try it at your home.

My PC with windows 7 is the only computer with issues in the house. Ethernet works perfectly but wifi doesn't even when I don't have the ethernet hooked up. The wifi says it is connected but browsers, steam, and Itunes don't work. I have Bitdefender A/V and already tried uninstalling it, no change. I also uninstalled steam and Itunes with still no change. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the wireless adapter. I tried looking and I don't recall downloading or installing anything around the time the problem started. Before I try replacing the adapter itself, I was hoping for help here since I saw a very similar problem in another thread.

My automatic windows update doesnt work anymore, even reinstalling a new XP sent to me by microsoft didnt sort that out.

I am waiting for Microsoft to come up with a solution.

In the mean time I want to make sure I install all updates. How can I see which updates are installed and where do I go to pick up the latest manually

PS if anyone would know how to fix the update problem that would be even better!

After I successfully updated my laptop to 8.1, I wanted to update my desktop too. But it doesnt work. The installation crashes after a long wait time during reboot at some point, for example last time, I tried twice, at 82% (preparing settings) or something. A orange screen appears (something went wrong) with a sad smiley and it reboots. After the crash reboot it hangs again and when I do a reset, it will restore the Windows to 8. What could be the problem for this? How could I debug into it? What kind of log files should I post here from the $windows.~bt folder?

Hi all,

I resntly bought myself a new harddrive for my PC. Nothing special, its a 40 Gig Seagate Barracuda 7200. When i tried to install it it didnt work. The PC just cant see it. A mate sugested a bios update but ive heard they can ruin the PC if they go wrong. Can someone explain exactly what a bios update does and how to do it. Ive got the update just deciding whether to get someone to do it or not. Or if someone has some other sugestions as to getting the new harddrive working...

Thanks

A:New Harddrive doesnt work... Bios update???

it's pretty unlikely that you're going to need a bios update to use a second harddrive. it's far more likely that the cabling and jumper scheme is flawed, check that out first.

a bios update (aka 'flashing' the bios) is the process of changing the bios code stored on a special chip onboard (aka cmos chip) to a different version. it is performed by executing a program supplied by your motherboard maker, and may or may not require the use of floppies. running an update program designed for another motherboard can easily cause fatal errors that make the board unbootable. losing power during the bios upgrading process can corrupt the cmos code and render the system unbootable. should a board become unbootable, it will not be able to execute the correct update program and cannot be fixed.

Try this : Press f8 when starting the computer - then do a system restore before you shut off the system when doing a update ...

Hey,

So i'm having an odd problem, my wifi only works correctly at home. When at home, I have no problem and a good, solid internet connection. When I am anywhere else (friend's house, school, work, even my phone personal hotspot), I can connect to the internet with no problem, and it even shows as "internet" on the wifi screen so I know it is getting it. However, when I attempt to load a webpage it shows as if there is no internet. I have tried Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. I have done the ipconfig renew and release, when I do release it says "media disconnected". I have also tried forgetting the network and reconnecting.

Unfortunately I don't have access to the internet in these locations to troubleshoot, so I figure I would get some advice now and try it when I am there again.

Thank you

Hi Everyone,

My hard drive crashed, so I installed a new one. I reinstalled XP via the 3 Toshiba Recovery and Applications/Drivers CD that came with my laptop. Everything went fine. This laptop did NOT come with a built-in WIFI card, so I have a Belkin 54g card, and I installed the drivers for the card.

I am able to see available wireless networks, and succesfully put in the WEP password on my router. My connection is 'excellent', however when I click on IE or AIM I can't get online. When I look at the status, I can see I'm Connected, however I'm only sending some packets, not receiving any. See attachment.

I can plug in my ethernet cable and get online just fine this way.

Hey guys,

I've got a Dell work laptop. It has McAfee Safeboot and other work related security things. I don't have many "privileges" on the machine. It connects to my work wifi network just fine (automatically) but I can't get it to connect to any wifi networks outside of work. If go to network settings and look at the wireless adapter and view available wifi networks, nothing comes up. It looks like the laptop has an alternative program that controls network adapter (Dell network adapter program) but it won't open when I double click it.

Any thoughts on where to start? What more info would you like?

About a week ago, our cable internet connection went out. Before I had a chance to reboot the modem & router, my 11 year old decided to completely reset the router to factory settings! Ugh! This caused several issues: my home network is now gone, only a unsecured factory network is available. When I try to plug my laptop into the router via ethernet cord (in order to login to router and setup secure network) my computer will not recognize the router and won't connect to internet. I tried troubleshooting with my cable provider and they say it's in my computer (IP address will not reset) and he recommended I replace my network card. However, today when I brought my laptop to work, it will instantly recognize the wifi at work. So is it really my network card that is causing issues? Please help, I'm desperate and not tech too tech savvy!

Hello Everyone, we've a Problem. After we've updated a HP ThinClient T610 to the newest ThinPro Version (5.2.x) it doesn't recognized the WIFI Adapter anymore. I've tested it with another one, but even this one doesn't work. Does anyone have an idea what it could be? Or is there a list with the supported WIFI Adapter on it? It would be great if anyone could help us. We should provide a solution to the customer. By the way: the adapter ist shown in the USB-Manager. But it doesn't recognize it as a WIFI Adapter. It's just there that i could redirect it to the session, not to connect to a Wireless-Network. Many thanks!Alex

Hi all, I have a serious problem. I install SP3 on Windows XP Professional and when I try to export to PDF (Crystal Report 8.5) this error occured: Failed to export the report. When uninstall the SP3 the export works good. What does mean? Any suggestion?
My XP installation:
- Windows XP SP3- .NET Framework 1.1- .NET Framework 2.0- AFPL GhostCript 8.51- MSXML 4.0 SP2 Parser- MS Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable
 Thanks. 

A:Please HELP! Export to PDF doesnt work under Windows XP SP3.

Hi everybody.
 
I was having the same problem here: using Crystal Reports 8.0 and PDF Exporting functionality added from Crystal Reports 8.5 files, exporting to PDF stopped working when we installed Windows XP SP3. It never worked on Windows Vista as well.
 
Similar to Voloda10 (the person from the last post), when I installed Crystal Reports 8.5 SP3 on the development machine with Windows XP SP3 the problem was solved, but when I tried to install manually the DLLs from CR 8.5 SP3, the problem wasn't solved. The files I picked were the ones related to the problem:


'u2ddisk.dll' v8.6.0.304 (%windir%\Crystal)

'u2fPDF.dll' (or 'crxf_pdf.dll') v8.6.2.429 (%windir%\Crystal)

'tslv.dll' (or 'crtslv.dll') v8.6.1.726 (%ProgramFiles%\Seagate Software\Shared) (or %CommonProgramFiles%\Crystal Decisions\2.0\bin ?)

'ExportModeller.dll' v8.6.2.440 (%ProgramFiles%\Seagate Software\Shared) (or %CommonProgramFiles%\Crystal Decisions\2.0\bin ?)
But after some testing I finally concluded that the file that solved the problem was the main API dll, 'crpe32.dll'!! I use the Automation Server, that uses the 'crpe32.dll' file, so in my case this one solved the problem:

'crpe32.dll' v8.5.3.979 (%windir%\System32)
In another application I use the RDC component and was experiencing the same problem. Same solution. I replaced the 'craxdrt.dll' file and the problem was solved:

'craxdrt.dll' v8.5.0.674 (%ProgramFiles%\Seagate Software\Report Designer Component)
And better than that, those files solved the problem for Windows Vista too!
 
Googleing for "crystal reports 8.5 service pack" I found a link to the CR 8.5 SP3 on a brazilian website (http://www.crystal.com.br/su_sp.asp). The direct link for the SP:
   http://ftp1.businessobjects.com/webprod/hot_fixes/en/cr85win_en_sp3.exe
 
Tip: Instead of installing the SP, you can unpack 'cr85win_en_sp3.exe' and after that use some tool to decompress 'data1.cab' (it's a Install Shield v6 Compressed File, not compatible with Microsoft .CAB files), like i6comp, that you can get here (or somewhere else):

its a brand new 50x cd rom drive, it works perfectly under win98/win2k, however in XP it pauses my computer for about 30 seconds when I insert a CD, half the time it'll detect the cd, sometimes it still thinks the previous cd is still in..i tried turning on DMA, i tried turning off the autoplay features, i tried switching around the jumpers, i also tried running with just the cdrom( i have a cdrw connected that works perfectly )

btw I have a brand new computer so I don't believe it has anything to do with the hardware, I was thinking maybe an IRQ conflict but the device manager says there is not one..does anyone know whats wrong? would appreciate any help.

first make sure you don't have any 16bit drivers loading in autoexec.bat or config.sys.
second, your drive my simply not work with xp; check microsoft's hardware compatability page ( forget the link) for more information.

i installed windows 7, and everything seemed to work fine.
installed a bunch of programs, they also all seem to work.

but then i decided to do some backups; i created the rescue cd using windows, and then cloned the hard drive also using windows 7.

but then i noticed the backup program, and decided to click on "set up backup"; nothing happens.

if i try the same from a disk drive/properties (ie click on backup there) nothing happens either.

any ideas? maybe something i installed broke this, but it seems like a pretty basic function to break like this.

thanks,

Mark one thig you can do is to check event viewer (type event viewer in search) go to the windows log>application tab. look for errors relating to vss, backup, app hang app crash. (errors have red in the left column) when you find them note the event ID and source code and let us know whata they are

Another thing you can do is to go into services.msc and make sure the vss service is running. If not set it to auto and start it.

the other option is to use a 4rd party app like acronis (which I recommend) since it doesnt use vss or anything else It will run

Hope this helps

Internet Explorer 7 was my favourite web browser, dont ask me why I just like its design, so I tried to put it on again. And so everytime I install Internet Explorer 7, and then reboot the computer (as it says to do) when I log back into my account, Only the background appears And a message appears telling me that windows explorer needs to shut down. And whence I Uninstall IE7, All is good.

Im running on XPSP2. And I installed Internet Explorer 7 directly off the microsoft website. And Currently Im using Internet Explorer 5.

A:Add/Remove Windows Components Doesnt Work

Do you have a Microsoft XP CD or cabinet files on the hard drive in the location of c:\I386

I believe what is not loading here is the sysoc.inf file. You can restore it to the c:\windows\inf folder.

Do a file search for it. You should have one copy in c:\windows\inf

You may find another in c:\I386

If you do, you may be able to copy the I386 file to c:\windows\inf

You probably ought to rename the one there first, eg: sysoc.old

If you just find sysoc.in_ with an underscore, that is a compressed file and needs to be expanded. It can be done using the following command with either your Microsoft CD or the c:\I386 folder as the source. I'll give the CD based command:
expand d:\i386\sysoc.in_ c:\windows\inf

this assumes 'd' is the letter assigned the CD-ROM drive. There is a space after the _ and before c:

I have nothing on the second problem, but the two may be related.

You can also try going to Start>Run and entering:

sfc /scannow

Close all Windows before doing that or you may not see the procedure execute.

You may need your System CD if files need to be restored. You may also not get any prompts at all if restores are made from the installed cache or c:\i386 folder.

Ctrl-alt-delete does come up but the only options that work are to switch users or log out. There is only 1 User set up on each Pc. I cant access the task manager.

Hi!

The sleep mode on win 7 only works for like 5 seconds then it starts up again at login screen. Anyone know how to fix this? Because i want it to go sleep mode until i touch the keyboard or press anything for it to wake up.

A:Windows 7 Sleep mode doesnt work

Hi ! I think your network causes your computer wakes up automatically.
You can try this step.. hope it'll work...
Prevent your Network Card from waking your Windows Vista/7 up from its sleep

Check your network card properties through the device manager and disable the “Allow this devide to wake the computer” feature.

Right click on your “My Computer” then select Properties.
Click Device Manager on the left side of the Properties window.
Check your Network card on the Network Adapters (Click on the + sign to expand).
Right click on your network card and select properties.
Go to the Power Management tab and untick the option there to prevent your network card from ever waking up your Windows.

I can open the windows share, look at the list of shared folders. But can NOT open any shared folder. Does anyone know why this may be happening? As far as I can say all is equal between the two networks. I have opened up appropriate ports on the router as well.

All I am doing is change from Wireless to Wired connection. Everything else is equal. I want to switch to wireless to improve file transfer speeds.

Check the settings of your keyboard. The Roccat is designed to disable those keys. You have them set to be ignored.

My laptop is HP envy 15t-ae000 CTO which run windows 8.1 . Today i updated my OS and restarted the system and found out that i am not able to use my touchpad.  I tried reinstalling the latest synaptics touchpad driver from the HP support center, but unfortunately it did not fix the issue. I tried to run the HP diagnostics during bootup for the touchpad and was not able to move the mouse pointer. Although the status of the diagnostics run says cancelled rather than failed.  If someone could suggest some probable solutions, it would be of great help. Thanks in advance. Regards,Srijith

I have a problem. My prolific driver serial to usb doesn't work. I have windows 8 64 bit. I have tried several things but not succeed. I have read that ther is a ser2pl64.sys 90Kb which will work but I cannot find it on the internet. Can anyone help me with this file. Thanks.

I finally succeed to get a working version again.

A:prolific driver doesnt work on Windows 8

I have a Prolific USB/Serial converter. I had an older version that worked on Win 7 but would not work in Win 8. I bought a new model (with updated internal chip) and that now works in Win 8.

It isn't the driver, its the chip version, from what I found out doing google searches.

My autorun doesnt function when I insert a CD. I've checked the registry entries and they are all set to the correct values.
It was working fine recently and the only changes I have made to the computer were to install windows upgrades, upgrade Java and PhysX.
Has anyone got any ideas. Ive tried another forum but apart from checking the registry values I havent had any other ideas

Hi,

1) After I refreshed my pc after getting a virus, I cannot use the +PrintScreen command anymore. When I press those two buttons, the screen doesn't dim for 2 seconds and goes back to normal, it stays normal and a png file doesn't appear in the Pictures\Screenshots

2) For future reference, which category would this thread be under. I was a little confused
Thanks a lot for your help

A:Help! 1) Windows+PrintScreen Doesnt Work 2) In text

Hello aar407,

Is this a desktop or notebook? For notebooks, you may need to press either the Windows+Ctrl+PrtScn or Windows+Fn+PrtScn keys instead.

Screenshot - Capture Screenshots Directly in Windows 8
However, refreshing Windows 8 may not get rid of a virus though. You might consider resetting, or preferably a clean install instead to help make sure it's gone.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

Have an HP computer G60. It came preloaded with windows 7. I dont like windows 7 or windows vista, so I decided to buy a retail windows XP disk,and install that on the machine. This was about a couple weeks ago.

Yesterday, I noticed the computer asking me to activate windows. I had activated it when I first loaded it onto the machine. There have been no hardware changes made to the machine. Why is it asking me for activation again? Whats even more funny is that the key that I put in the first time doesnt activate windows anymore.

Whats going on? How do I stop the thing from asking me for the activation key and giving the countdown of days?
