Weird problem when on the Net

Q: Weird problem when on the Net

My system has starting to slow down and sometimes stop when on the net. Seems to be when waiting for a reply to a request like opening a web site. When opening my email I have to wait for a minute because when the page opens and I start to type the screen go blank and the page will redisplay....any thing that I typed will be gone. System is running on an ethernet cable. More problems seems to be when I back page it will take some time before the page will display. Has at times just hang and will not go back.

Another weird problem is when I try to download Flash Player it will not let it download. Just hangs and does nothing.

These program are more on Chrome than on Firefox. Also when I send it my work timesheet Chrome will not display the reply from my company but Firefox will. AT&T has run several test on the DSL line and said all is OK. Eithernet card problem maybe? I am beginning to think maybe a complete system failure is coming.

BTW...Lap top runs fine on wireless.

Preferred Solution: Weird problem when on the Net

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.)

Hello everyone,

i'm having a weird problem in my setup, it's not a real problem but it's very annoying.

i can't post a screenshot right now, but the situation is pretty simple:

i have a "login button" (see attached example) floating on the left of my third screen. It's the same exact button from the login screen.

The button can't be moved, it doesn't react to right-click but it does react to left click, showing the account control panel

If i try to change resolution (forcing a redraw of the screens) the button goes away, then it comes back in the same position after some time (minutes)

how can i get rid of it?

I have just installed ms office professional recently. I usually open this program for a game. When i open it it gives me this -- Imageshack - 85374956
It happened with this program. I dont think it does with the other ones..
This has not happened until i installed ms office 2007. im really pissed now because i have had quite alot of problems with it. I might just uninstall it and never install it again because its interfeiring with other programs. If anyone can help cool if not ill just uninstall it.

A:Weird - Very weird annoying problem

Nothing happens if you wait for it to "finish configuring"? May I suggest trying to run it as administrator? Even if you're running an administrator account, you may want to try and give the program administrator privileges; right-click on the program you're running and select Run as Administrator.

I have the strangest problem with my internet since updating to W8. My internet works absolutely fine all day, up until later in the day (not sure what time exactly this happens) but it stops working! It says it is connected but it simple can't find a network.

I am connected via LAN to an apartments in house internet setup.

I honestly have no idea what the problem could be! When I was in W7 it was fine. The ethernet cable is always plugged in properly.

I have talked to the internet "pro's" who operate the LAN in the building but they are confused by this too.

Help would be great thanks.

A:Weird Weird Problem!

Are others in the building also losing their internet access at a similar time? Upgrading to Windows 8 could be co-incidental. There are some really bizarre things that can upset an ADSL signal if that's how the building gets its access.

Hey guys today I got a HELP!

A:Weird RAM problem, PLEASE HELP!

Run the test again. These such benchmarking programs can really vary time to time, you may have had some antivirus program running in the 2nd try...just try it again.

Dunno why it would score in excess of 200 points lower though

Ah, after you run it the 2nd time, shut down and take the 2nd stick out again, and run the benchmark a 3rd time just to clarify that it is the extra RAM's fault.

Have you tried restoring the default BIOS settings? It appears that your PC is trying to boot from a network. Check the boot order, as well.
Relevancy 36.98%

Changed IDE controller to both in the BIOS of the old P2 so that the CDROM would show up again, boot up windows and my display driver has been erased, and the network connection and internet do not work. The router is showing a signal from the PC. I connect on a home network of 2 PCs sharing a DSL connection. The other PC works fine, except it obviously can't "talk" to the other PC over the network.

Thanks for any ideas

A:Weird problem

The fact that Windows doesn't recognize your vid card also suggests that you have messed up your mobo configuration in Windows. Open Device Manager and see if your vid card, NIC, sound card, etc are all detected correctly.

Reinstalling drivers for your mobo (chipset) should fix it.

hey guys and girls

I just finished building my pc , it switches on with no problems i set the boot priority, the cd rom being the first. i insert the windows xp disc to install it loads up and then starts copying the files to the hard drive, all is going well so far, then when it comes to the part do you want to install windows press enter, i do that, then the pc takes a while to load then just restarts itself, this error happens always at the same point, i have also tried 2 windows discs.

A:Weird Problem

Hi peety87

Just to make sure --- after Windows XP has finished much of it's installation work, it is supposed to reboot: if you allow your computer to reboot again from the CD-drive at that point, it will start Setup again. Does this describe what is happening?

If so, after XP Setup has finished copying it's files & reboots, make sure to choose "boot from hard disk" from then on.

See if that does it (if not, let us know)

Hey, I have a weird microphone problem on my computer.
The computer can find my mic and it works perfectly in windows recorder and everything (I've tried to record my self and I can hear myself when I play the file afterwards), however when I try to use my mic in a program like Skype or Ventrilo, I can't make anyone else here me.
I'm using Windows 7 atm but I had the same problem earlier, when I was using Windows Vista as well. So I don't think it has anything to do with that.
And I've gone through every configuration in Skype, Ventrilo and Team Speak. Yet I can't find any solution.

Sounds like the CPU fan isn't working. Take the side panel off (or swing it open if it is one of the clamshell cases) and then power it up. See if the CPU fan is spinning. You may need to take the green cowling off.

If it isn't, power down right away (looks like the protection is working). Call a local pc shop and they can get you a replacement heatsink/fan assembly.

As a last resort I guess we'll just reformat but that will definitely be a last resort. We've been using Mozilla Firefox but it just doesn't work the same and none of the IE dependent programs work with it. Please help.

A:weird IE problem

Well, you can't uninstall IE. It's an integral part of the OS. However, you could try to repair it:
To repair IE, open the control paneland click on Windows Programs, then on add / remove programs. Click on IE and then the next menu that comes up will give you an option for repairing IE.

ok i own a site called ( you can remove it if i broke a rule sorry). i have a modem and a router, my ethernet cable from my pc runs to the router and every site loads fine except mine but when i plug my cable straight into my modem i can load my site any help on how to fix this problem?

A:Weird Problem

First I'd try just power cycling the router, if not already tried.

Second, reset the router to factory default settings and see if that solves the issue.

If we have to trouble shoot ...

What is the brand and model of the modem? Of the router?

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.
Type the following commands:


[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]


Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Recently I moved plenty file from my old laptop to my external HD.
Afterward, I can't save anything in the old laptop. It keep referring to external HD instead of using internal laptop HD.
So I can't save anything unless I plug my external HD. The laptop is acting as if the HD hard disc is his.
Is there anyway to solve this?

A:Weird problem

Should be able to click OK on the warning
then choose a different location to save to.

Do this:
go to , and download 'Hijack This!'.....
Unzip it to its own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.

My computer has recently developed the new trick of just shutting down without warning. When the computer tries to reboot, I get an error message about inserting the system disk. when i shut it off and turn it back on manually it boots just fine. I then get the message that the system has recovered from a serious error and it identifies two files(?) that are involved. Any help or guidance on what is causing this new trick would be appreciated.
Thanks ahead of time!

A:Weird problem with XP pro ed.

Those "files" are simply the data dump that contains (perhaps) the reason for the fault. They are the "log files" of the system.

Try disabling restart on error. That might give a blue screen lockup instead of a reboot, with a visible error code.

Start - Control Panel - System - Advanced - Startup and recovery/Settings - untick "Automatically restart"

Hey all, I'm having a weird problem with Internet Explorer. Basically every 2-3 minutes i get an error message popping up saying Internet explorer has stopped working. Vista searches for a problem and when its done i click on close program. This keeps on happening.

The weird part is that i dont use IE, i use Firefox. At first i thought it was spyware or adware that was trying to launch IE so i ran Spybot then Adaware and found nothing. Then i tried Malware bytes and AVG and still found nothing.
I tried updating windows and internet explorer, this had no effect. I've checked problem reports and solutions but theres no solution for it. I havent installed any new software or changed hardware recently so I'm quite stumped.

Anybody have any idea what might be happening?

P.S. I'm running 32 bit Home edition of vista.

recently the PC does not always boot up, stopping after the POST, displaying the HD's
then freezing,

also when working it will freeze, put it down to low disk space, (so cleared a lot of crap)

when it freezes, even after a reset/power up CTRL/ALt/Del still stops after the POST (can still get into the BIOS)

now, when I put the removable drive back into its Caddy, it boots every time !

thinks maybe one of the drives is on its way out...

To be honest, i have no clue what kind of compaq it is, there's no information on the case itself hinting on what it is..all i know, is that it's been upgraded to 512MB or RAM, had an Intel Pentium III clocked at 2.0 Ghz, 2 samsung cd read/write drives, a flopy disk drive. an EliteMT video card, and a brand new Western Digital Caviar Blue EIDE hard drive

the problem i'm experiencing, is when i insert the XP boot disk to install windows XP (which was running smoothly on this computer before the original hard drive failed), i recieve the prompt to "press any key to boot from CD", which i do and it goes to "setup is identifying hardware configuration" or whatever.

right after that, i get a blank screen, no matter how long the PC stays on.

when i insert the same disc into another computer, it works fine.

When you put the new HD in did you check the jumpers were set correctly. The old one may have been set to cable select, try setting your new drive to master. I am assuming your HD and CD drive are on seperate channels?

A:Weird XP problem

Have a look at what XP is doing by opening task manager and clicking the processes tab. It's possible that you have a lot of files and Norton or a similar utility is scanning them (look at the I/O reads and other columns).

The column labelled CPU should give you a hint as to the percentage of your processor power that's being diverted to whatever task is running. (I'm sure you won't see it, but if nothing is loading/running, you'll have a high percentage in 'system idle process'.)

Once you determine the process to which most of your startup CPU time is going, you'll have an idea of what, if anything, needs tinkering.

A better psu cant hurt, that is a 300watt that you have i expect and it undoubtedly just isn't enough.

Putting a 400watt or better should help and probably fix your problem.

The best advice i can give you is to spend as much as you can afford on a psu an to go only for well known makes.

If you are looking to get a new one, let me know how much you have to spend and where abouts you are in the world!!!

I am having a very odd problem proboboly caused by a virus of some sort. I scanned with an online scanner (micro trend) and I have viruses and deleted them both,yet,I still am having this weird problem. Whenever I click on a file,it says " Windows cannot find "file stuff goes here" please Search for it using the start button then search". It does that for almost ever single program I click. I would appreciate the help. Thanks.

A couple of hours ago my internet stopped working, which was a weird thing since my connection showed full bars and when i troubleshooted it found no problems. When i opened anything on google chrome it said that i wasnt connected to the internet. So I tried to open my Norton AntiVirus software but it just would do nothing, no matter how many times i clicked on the icon, it would not respond. Later it just started trying to fix my computer. The window that said there was a problem read thet i had an error called error 8504, 101 and that norton was trying to fix my internet connectivity, which in turn didnt work and asked me to go to its website for additional support, though i didnt have internet connection. I am now using my phone to write this. Any ideas??

I saw this.We have seen this error appearing with a program called RapidBoot which comes with the Lenovo computers. If you have RapidBoot on your computer, make sure that you download and install the latest version. Contact your computer manufacturer for further assistanceMore moved this to Antivirus tools for now.

Hi All

I just purchased two SSD's and have them in Raid0 as my boot drive with program gfiles installed. I am not even sure how to describe my problem but here goes. I click on a program or drive and nothing happens for up to 15 secs then I hear this noise and bingo whatever I click on opens. I use paltalk a bit and it will sit there trying to connect then again that strange noise and it connects immediately ... could my network card be "sleeping" .. I really have no idea .. I should be getting almost instant performance with two SSD's in raid but I am not ... any suggestions on this weird issue most welcome

A:Weird Problem

Check out the power options on all relevant hardware in Device manager, It could be the network card or even the drives. USB could be an issue too if you have any relevant hardware attached.

Also check any options on your raid controller that may be separate from the Device manager

I am at a loss as to why this is happening.
As of right now firefox and AIM work completely fine, as does iTunes and some utorrent and some other programs.
Internet Explorer and ANY other web browser that i have downloaded will not work at all they claim it can not connect to the internet which is rather puzzling. I have uninstalled all of my anti virus and disabled windows firewall. Downloaded spybot search and destroy but cant run it since it cant connect to the internet either to update itself. World of Warcraft also cant connect to the internet as is the case with my VNC software which i recently uninstalled.
Recently I installed a half open port patch which i just put the original back along with uninstalling vmware and nothing has worked.
I am not running behind a proxy and i havent configured firefox in any way to connect to the internet.

I have a Compacq Presario S6000NX that is continuiously power up then shuting down. When I first set it up it booted fine except for a 5 second "Floppy drive failure warning". I disconnected the floppy drives power and ribbon cable but the warning still appears. I then, over a period of 12 hours turn it on and then off for several hours but always plugged in. Then this morning I found the computer booting up shuting down on it's own. I had shut the computer off last night and I had left it pluged in. Any one have an idea?

Alright, heres what happened last night.

My Laptop started beeping, for every 1 beep, the hard drive light lit up once.
It kept doing that untill it turned off to the blue screen of death, memory dump.

I was thinking it might be a RAM problem ?
ANy other ideas would be appreciated.

I was also wondering if any of you had a link to that program which checks if you have RAM problems ?

Maybe trying taking out the memory and putting it back in. If that's possible on your laptop.

Okay, I have about 20,000 songs on my computer and for some reason a few albums have doubled track time. Meaning a 5 minute song is now a 10 minute song. They seem to play alright in media player, but when I put them into itunes is when I notice it. Also, when on my ipod the songs will play fine until a certain point and then the sound will go out but they will still be playing. Is this some weird form of corruption or can anyone give me some ideas. I don't really want to go digging through my cd's and re-rip them if it is not necessary. Thanks in advance

Anyone seen anything like this before?

UT (the original) has always run nicely on my A64/3800+ machine, but the first time I fired it up after replacing my Logitech MX510 mouse with a G5, I found a really strange problem: in gameplay, keystrokes are delayed, and seem to repeat too fast.

Example: I hit the key to move forward, and it takes a fraction of a second to start moving. If I hold it for a few seconds, it seems to queue up a ton of repeats, so I keep moving for several seconds after releasing it. Same happens with any directional keys, or any other gameplay keys as far as I can tell.

I've closed, killed, or disabled pretty much everything else running on the machine, with no improvement. I put my MX510 back on and had a very slight improvement for the first few seconds, but it didn't last.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

A:Weird UT problem...

Was there software that came with the new mouse? It's unusual, but sometimes there are extra-special mouse drivers. Also, check to make sure you don't have an IRQ conflict.

Have you set the controller to DMA? Check it in Device Manager under "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers". Right click the primary channel, select "Properties" and click on "Advanced Settings". It will tell you whether you are in PIO or DMA/UDMA mode. If it's set to PIO mode then click on the drop down box and select "DMA if available". Do the same for the secondary channel (if applicable).

Reboot and test.

If the photos are not on a web site I can view them just fine.

Don't know that I have a solution for you but you may want to provide more details ->

how are you connected to the internet - cable, dsl, dialup connection?
are you using a router?
Who is your ISP - AOL, verizon, comcast?
What computer do you have - make and model?
What operating system - windows 98, XP, Vista?
what browser are you using - internet explorer, firefox?
If i had to guess, i would say you are using internet explorer on a DELL computer -> I would suggest downloading and using firefox

I have an ibook with an odd problem. It recently stopped working, so it got fixed, fixed again and finally was deemed dead due to a faulty logic circuit or some such problem.

Upon recent examination, it does work, however the screen stays blank. ie. you can turn it on, it whirrs, the cd tray will open and when pushed; the num/caps lock lights turn on.

Any idea what is causing this (i would open it, but i don't have a hex key small enough ).

thanks, Whiternoise.

A:Weird Mac problem

Are you referring to the screen being blank? If so it could be the LCD backlight or backlight inverter. Also could be the flex data cable.

Hey everyone I ve had my current PC for about years and I m ready to re-build it with all new components I ve realized that motherboards and processors are pretty cheap and I can build a decent system for around bucks if weird HELP! Really RAM problem I salvage my old case etc Anyway I m having this problem with my old set-up where the motherboard reads the RAM capacity wrong For example I put a a total of G DDR RAM into my Mobo and it reads it as only MB DDR RAM Then I remove one stick so only MB DDR RAM is in and the Mobo reads it as MB I Really weird RAM problem HELP! m really puzzled by this So in summary my Mobo is reading my sticks of mb as mb each I ve made sure this RAM is compatible with my motherboard and all that I have a Intel D PERL Motherboard and the RAM I have is actually listed as compatible on the Intel support website Any suggestions would make my day Chris nbsp

A:Really weird RAM problem HELP!

First point is that if you salvage your old case you will probably have to fit a new PSU to it to deal with the new components.
Second - that RAM is not compatible with the motherboard. Maybe wrong voltage or wrong speed, but wrong.

However, when I did finally reboot, I found that ALL of the data I had saved was missing. I performed a full scan of all my disks using Revuca, but not a trace of the files showed up.

Is there any possible explanation for this?
