[SOLVED] Admin rights from a limited account

Q: [SOLVED] Admin rights from a limited account

I have 4 profiles setup on my boy's PC. An admin account for myself and then 1 each for my 3 boys. All 3 of their accounts are limited for obvious reasons, but can I login as an administrator from one of their limited profiles?

The reason being, is that if I am trying to do something from one of their profiles and I can't perform the task because I'm not the administrator, it's a pain to logout and then log back in on my account.

There has to be an easier way...No?

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Admin rights from a limited account

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.)

A: [SOLVED] Admin rights from a limited account

you're on XP so this is quite an annoying task, it's easier in vista but i'll see if i can help you out... what sort of task are you thinking of completing, there are many workarounds, you may/may not know that XP has a "System" user which has administrator privelages, XP can be tricked to run tasks from the command prompt as this system account... It all depends on the task though, we'll need more details on the type of task?

If not then you could enable quick user switching or whatever it's called (where you log out and log in but your programs are still running in the origional user etc etc...

As i've said post back with the type of tasks you wish to complete and i'll try and help...

Hello, I'll try to be as clear as I can.

I have my computer hooked up to my router with an Ethernet cable. About an hour ago the Limited sign popped up. With the cable connected it says Limited, but I can freely use the internet. When I take the cable out, under connections it still only says "Ethernet Limited" and I can't use the internet. I'm not sure about any specs to my comp. All I know Is I'm using windows 8 and it's from Toshiba. I know it's not much to go on, but I'm losing my mind and any help would be wonderful. Thank you.

This picture is how it looks when the cable is, and isn't, plugged in.


A:Limited Access with Ethernet, even when not connected

With the cable pulled out, the picture is correct (for a wired Lan Connection).
When it is attached AND you have access to the Internet, it should not be limited.
SO, get a command prompt ( start->run and enter CMD ) and enter

then NOTEPAD myTCP.txt
copy the contents and PASTE that as your follow-up

A:Limited wifi acces at home, but not at other places

Hello maarten747 ,

As far as I can see from the ipconfig output your laptop doesn't seem to obtain IP address.
You could try configuring one manually to test this theory. Something like: IP address, Subnet mask:, Gateway:, DNS1:, DNS2: . Just keep in mind that the details listed here are just a guess as I'm not fully aware of the specifics of your home network and a static IP configuration for the wifi adapter is not a good idea actually, so once done testing change it back to obtain IP address automatically.

Also in what wireless operation mode is your DrayTek configured?
Do you have any other wireless devices that are connecting to the same DrayTek ?
When you connect your laptop with ethernet cable, is the ethernet cable connected to the same DrayTek or a different device?

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.

Hi been awhile since I last posted. In the house we have a desktop and 2 laptops on the go in the house.The desktop is wired internet while the laptops are run on wifi.This worked fine until my isp UPC upgraded my internet speed from 50mb to 120mb.. The desktop and one of the laptops still works fine but the acus laptop has web access for between 20 mins to 45mins before the wifi drops off and becomes limited access. The wifi needs to be renabled to regain access to the wifi which lasts another small while until it gets limited access again.

The laptop specs are:
Acus K53e
Windows 7 home premium 64bit
intel Centrino N100 wifi adapter
Ram 6gig

At the moment its running for 30 mins then wifi cuts off for a few seconds before starting up again.

Good day,

I wanted to post my fix for my connectivity problem since another thread here steered me to the right fix but it was quite a bit different from the fix they had posted. That thread has since been closed. The poster suggested removing anti virus programs on a computer that could connect to a network but got Limited Connectivity error. When I tried to manually remove AVG I got an error, used AVG removal tool which removed it fine but didnt fix the issue.

What fixed the issue immediately for me was manually disabling "AVG network filter driver" which I found in each network adapter properties. This filter driver was present even after running the removal tool which I find very strange.

Hope this helps someone

A:Limited Access

Well its probably the school network, do you have to register the machine with the network and enter passcodes etc. That sounds like it maybe the issue.

Also I would take down that stuff you posted with your subnet, IP, etc, its alot of personal information about your PC thats a little too much if you catch my drift.

Back on subject, I would first check if you have to register it or something first, then we can go from there.

A:Limited connection with IP release/renew problems

It's a little difficult to pin down what your problem is without knowledge of your network and router setup, but IP collisions and connection issues that get fixed temporarily with release and renew are usually related to misconfigured DHCP settings. Such as when two routers are distributing IP addresses to the same range of systems, or when some devices list static IP address, or sometimes if a wireless device is also plugged in with a network cable, claiming the same IP address with both connections.

if you ping those google dns addresses (, or and you get errors instead of replies it just means your not connecting to the internet.

Like I said though this is generic stuff and no one will be able to be more specific until you describe a bit about your overall network layout, and types of connections.

Hi, I've been away camping for a couple of weeks and now that I'm back my desktop computer no longer connects to the internet. As I state in the title, however; the signal strength says it's "very good".

I've tried removing the connection and re-adding it, I've tried moving the wireless USB/removing and potential disturbances, but to no avail.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Turn off the Modem
Turn off the Router
Turn off the PC
Turn off all network gear

Do this for 30 seconds.

Then slowly turn on the modem (DSL or Cable)
Then the router
Any switches

Hey Math.Is your router secured?. If so,I would verify that you can connect using an Ethernet cable. If so, I would go into the router's setup and change the broadcast channel the router is using, change it to 10 or 11 and save the changes. Remove the cable, wait a minute, then try to connect.What is the make and model of your router?.

Can anyone tell me what this means I am thinking of buying a new pc and am not confident enough to build it myself. Have been looking in the usual places that people who build there own rigs probably disapprove of, when am looking at a certain pc from dell it says this

The memory speed of 4 DIMMS configuration will be limited at 1066MHz with Athlon II X4 630 and Phenom II X4 820 processors. ...

If the memory works at 1300 Mhz and the Processor only supports 1066 Mhz what does that mean ?

A:AMD processors limited to 1066MHz memory speed?

AMD CPU's have the memory controller built into them. Faster memory will just have the speed of it set to what the memory controller can support.

So if the memory works at 1300Mhz, but the controller only supports 1066Mhz, then the 1300Mhz memory will just slow down to 1066Mhz.

But Dell only says that the speed of the memory will be limited on those CPU's only if all 4 ram slots are filled with memory. Unless you will be upgrading the memory in the system when you get it, you dont need to worry about it.

hey y all- i had a for undervolted PS modem Problem solved: modem connectivity problem that had an easy answer and I thought I would post a note just to keep us all thinking creatively -- My computer DSL connection was iff-y then died I figured out that the power supply for the wire modem Problem solved: undervolted PS for modem was dead - I did this by Problem solved: undervolted PS for modem process-of-elimination and by don t try this at home sticking my tongue on the power tip of the power supply - at volts you should feel a little buzz - no buzz dead power supply So I head of to Radio Shack Go Lance They don t have a volt ps They do have a multi-power adapter that includes volt in the range of selectable voltage by a switch It costs more than a plain volt power adapter should but I want to read Techspot so I Problem solved: undervolted PS for modem pay the extra money for a multi-adapter rather than find one off the web and wait for shipping Multi-adapter had wrong polarity and this was not switchable so I had to cut and reverse the wiring don t try this at home unless you know what you are doing - wrong polarity will smoke and kill whatever low -voltage thingie yo uplug in including DSL modem Prob Solved Months later I get modem problems I think it is a wireless connectivity problem because whenever I try to hit the web by wireless the modem freaks out Somehow days later it occurs to me power could be wrong sure enough one of my preschoolers had somehow pushed the power adapter voltage slector switch from volt to volt -- so when the desktop and the laptop were both trying to pull data through the wire modem it was just enough power drain to make the modem shut off So if you have connectivity problems as always check the classic quot is it plugged in Is it turned on quot intervention first - check for a dead power adapter on your modem And if you have to improvise and use a multi-voltage power supply adapter you might want to glue or tape the voltage selector button in place nbsp

A:Limited no connectivity unable to renew IP address

You have a computer that appears to be sic years old... after six years, several components are often damaged... especially the hard drive.
Do you have the software to format and install a new hard drive?
What is your configuration...
And HP Presario should be a Compaq Presario... I would borrow a computer to download all the drivers, or get somebody to download them for you. If you don't have install disks, you can buy them from HP via a phone call... if they have any left.
When is the last time your computer worked properly and what happened to apparently make it stop working properly.
Do you have a friend who is tech smart to help you take a look at the computer and its components?

A:Limited/no connectivity

First, go back to basics on your router. Remove the old install on the computer and reinstall. Be sure it is working as it did before.
Then follow the instructions provided in the router documentation exactly. Do not overlook the parts you do not understand.
You have likely misunerstood or overlooked one step. We have all done it.
I would be most interested in, "...the router is dual band I split the 2.4ghz and the 5.0ghz frequencies since i have many 802.11g devices that I didnt want to slow down my more important 802.11n devices..."

By visiting the Event viewer for my BSOD I noticed that two warnings are appearing in the list whose source is Kernel processor power and it is shown in the list every time that if i have booted my PC.
Had i not visited event viewer for BSOD purpose I would not have known these warnings!.

Warning 1:
The speed of processor 0 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report.

Warning 2:
The speed of processor 1 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report.

I have an hp mini 1000 netbook with the admin passwords in the bios and win xp. It was my cousins who is no longer with us, so my aunt gave it to me. Noone knows the passwords. How can I bypass them or override them? I can get in as a guest but it is too limited. What are my best options?

A:HP Mini admin password unknown

You need to talk to HP, after changing the registered ownership, and may need a document about the fate of the previous owner. You may have to send it to a certified HP service center with a formal notice of change of ownership included.
As for TechSpot, there is a policy to not provide assistance with passwords.

I have a linksys wireless g router, it has worked for over a year, but recently, it will stop working. It shows that it is connected but that there is limited or no connectivity. Then it says that the network failed to assign an IP address.

Unplugging the router and replugging it makes it work fine, but I would like to not have to do this every time.

I had another router last year that did this ever since I had bought it, and that's why I finally just got this one. At Best Buy, they said that the cheaper routers tended to do that. Any idea why this one used to work, and now doesn't? And is there any way to fix it?

Thanks for your help, and I apologize if this has been asked numerous times before.

A:Limited or no connectivity

you can try editing the connection settings manually (i.e. IP address, DNS servers) or vice versa. this is a common problem, but sometimes you may need to edit router settings too. open your web browser and type "" in the address bar. when it asks for a password use "admin" and you should have access to the router. make sure DHCP is enabled and that the broadcast is set to the correct frequency. save changes and reconnect.

A:50Mbps Internet limited to 20Mbps and persistent icon trouble

it could be a problem with your wireless card....u mention, does it work well via ethernet? if yes then u cant blame anything but your wireless card OR the wireless radio of the router itself....u can try tweaking the setting of the wireless radio in the router's config

So, here's the deal. I recently got that error. It says that I have Limited or no connectivity. I can't figure out what's wrong. I get an IP like WTF! I tried almost everything I found on Google, but no results.
I tried :

Repair connection
Disable/Re-enable connection
Delete/Re-install adapter (NIC)
Manually assign IP address
Re-setting BIOS
Changing modem and cable
Using many IPConfig commands (Release/Renew/etc)
Editing registry (EnableDHCP/etc)
Editing MAC address
Even resetting/reconfiguring modem
And EVEN reformatting PC
But nothing. I am totally confused.
Oh! And I tried my network card on my old PC, somehow, it works. For now, I'm using USB modem, it's quite slow, that's why I want Ethernet back. I know that the problem isn't the modem. My laptop (Win7) works both Wired and Wireless with both modems. I would appreciate your help.

At first I thought maybe there was a problem with the home router, but the internet on the other computers in the house were working fine. Then I came back to my house and its the same thing: the internet on all of my roommate's computers is working fine, but mine is still having thte same problem.

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

A:Advice on limited graphics card upgrade possibilities

Your first limitation is the power supply, which on most Dell Dimension 2400's is about 240 watts.... certainly no more than 300 watts... then your video graphics card must be a PCI card... and there are not many cards that will work very well in that system.
So you need a PCI video graphics card, and a power supply that can handle it.. I would get the 256 GB video graphics card... The 2400 cannot handle anything larger... but a 128 GB card would be more likely to work with your power supply, whereas the 256 might overload the system.
If it were my system, I would start a savings program, and get a better computer for gaming... rather than trying to make the 2400 work.
The Dell Dimension 2400 is a good computer with few failures... But, it is a basic budget low end computer, and it is already at least three or four years old... some components may be close to an upgrade anyway.

I want to put this up just encase anyone had the same problem I did and if I remember correctly there were a few people that posted the same problem on other forums The problem When I ran anything very graphically intensive like crysis furmark or when I ran a game without vsync on my PC would crash and I would just see lines on the screen or just see blackness 4850 Crashing problem solved I even got a replacement for my card and they said it was faulty and sent me a new one but it still happened just less often Solution In your bios set the pcie frequency to not auto How came to this conclusion I had just helped my friend build a PC for the first time and he had done a lot of research and as we were overclocking his CPU he mentioned that he heard you should set the pcie frequency on your motherboard to not auto or it will overclock itself during intense graphics After I had a few more crashes I remembered him mentioning this 4850 Crashing problem solved so I tried it and no more crashing not even in furmark So thanks to him I don t have to worry about crysis cashing anymore and I can finally overclock nbsp

OK, my subject line might sound cryptic! Here is my set up: first router (main) is connected to the cable modem and provides std addresses as (base is etc. I have a second router (same brand) as a gateway connected to my main. This second router base address is and all that are connected to this one have manually provided IP addresses (such as, etc). The main one provides WIFI access as for the second one do not.

Now my question: from my laptop who uses the WIFI network, how can I reach or connect to the other network (the one that is managed with the router with the address? The purpose? I would like to access the computer connected to it as if they were part of the WIFIed network. And be able to access the router management page. Any clue?

A:Cascading routers - how to access admin features from one to the other?

first some basics;

examine the router (the box itself). everything attached to a LAN slot will default to
routing upwards using the WAN slot -- that's a big clue as to what the routing tables looks like.

second; to manage the configuration of a specific router:
a) WIRE a system directly to it
b) login to the router config page using the current router's ip-address

if your network is

then a system attached to routerX will route upward to router(X-1) and NOT downward to router(X+1)

if you wish to have ALL systems (wired and wireless) see and share with each other, then you have too many distinct address.
Leave router#1 as is. disconnect router#2 from #1 and wire router#1 to a LAN port on router#2, leaving its WAN port empty. Log into router#2 and disable DHCP.

Now do the same for the wire from #2-->#3 and disable#3 DHCP.

All systems (wired or WiFi) will get ip-assignments from router#1 and will be able to
ping and share files.

I have a linkysys cable modem and a netgear wireless modem hooked up to my computer downstairs(Running Xp). Upstairs I have a laptop with wifi(Running Vista).

All day I can have working internet on my downstairs computer unless I go use wifi on my laptop. I go use my laptop for around 10 minutes and then i get "This connection has limited or no connectivity" on both computers. What I do is unplug and then replug the modems, and everything is back to normal until I go use wifi on my laptop again! It's very annoying does anyone know a fix to this problem? Thanks for any help

Also...I would like to add that it seems like everytime one computer watches a video, this problem occurs.

the problem is what i call flooding or soaking of the router, not sure what the technical term is though, i get this when i have been downloading anything of a large size on a torrent program, i even get it when my son runs Xbox live for a long time.
My answer like you is to reboot the router and the NTL modem,, not good i know..

I never rated Netgear stuff perferring Belkin and Linksys, however thats not the issue, have you tried the tech support for the router to see if there are any known issues or checked to see if there is an update for your router.?

Having been away for the weekend, I have turned on my desktop today and found that the wired ethernet connection is showing "Limited or no connectivity". I can access internet by wireless on this laptop and everything works fine. I have also disabled the wireless adapter and taken the same ethernet cable that was plugged into desktop and plugged into laptop and the laptop connects without a problem.

Am I right to assume that this is a hardware issue on the desktop? I recently rebuilt the computer into a different casing and reformatted the hard drives however I have had the system running for over a week with no problems until today.

Thanks in advance for any help

I take it that the extra 256Meg of Ram did not originally come from HP
I'm not sure if that's relevant or not, but even same rating Ram (but different manufacture) has been known to cause issues (ie best to use exactly the same Ram cards always)

I was discussing a similar matter earlier on here: Windows will not boot with more than 2gb of ram (although the emphasis in that thread was the 2Gig max, before installing Windows, and strangeness of having increased ram in a system)

Either way, thanks for your post, it was interesting to note this issue (and likely cause)
Many times during a Setup fault, I have advised members to remove extra Ram cards and try again. It may be that the originally recorded Ram (under re-imaging) may be the answer (on some computers that may have Setup problems) Sadly you would need to test this issue on 10 similar, same spec, computers to really confirm. Or contact HP technical support, or possibly their tech forum, to ask of others experiences.

Of late I found my desktop PC crashing now and then. The situation was getting worse by the day and it was becoming frustrating to use the PC.

I opened the box and got my fingers dirty, so before I looked further I decided to blow out all the dust with a vacuum cleaner. Loads of dust billowed out. I would recommend holding the CPU fan blades so that it does not spin uncontrollably.

After the dust clean up, the PC is working great and no unwanted crashes. I guess the dust was preventing the cooling of the CPU.

I have windows xp home, on a compaq presario laptop, and formerly had no problems connecting wirelessly to anything. Unfortunately, and i think i created this problem myself, i enabled the spyware on my pc-cillen antivirus and probably inadvertently deleted some files from the registry i need for my wireless connection. My problems arose soon after i enabled this function. Back to Ad-aware for me! Being kinda computer ignorant in this regard, i tried to fix it with winsox but no go. No matter what i try i still get a limited or no connectivity message. I tried restore point, but no go also. I get kinda panicky about fiddling with the registry so i need some knowledgeable advice, kinda like fix-your-internet-connection-for-dummies. Anyone?

Well if you think you got rid of something you need, then I'd suggest removing it from the device manager, restarting windows and letting it reinstall the wireless card. Just keep your manufacturer CD close, in case you need to manually install the drivers for it.

Both should have a dot in AUTOMACTICALLY. This activates the dhcp so that your computer assings you a IP address that is used by your router..they should be linked. ie: through router sholud have a list of IP addresses that can be used by it....your router can support up to 100 computers( in this example) ....

A:"Limited or No Conectivity"

It said something about "Duplicate Ip address foundClick to expand...

Well that's the problem!

Now I'll try to speak very basic (I'm good at that!)

If your network computers automatically picks up their own IP address (ie DHCP enabled)
Then all you need to do, is turn off all the computers and then turn them back on.

But if your network has been manually set up to use a specified IP address (DHCP Disabled) Then you will need to do the following
On the faulting IP computer
Go to Network Connections
Right Click on your Network icon (it probably says disabled)
Left click on Properties
Double Click on TCP\IP.... line
You should see the IP Address

That IP address is also on another computer.
But if set manually, then each computer must be different
So looking at the last number in the IP ie XXX.XXX.XX4 (X is unknown, and 4 is an example, because I don't know the number)
Just change that last number to a number that's not being used (probably just try 9)

Then restart the computer

How did it go?

If it doesn't work still, have a look here:

A:Limited or No Connectivity?

If you use a wireless USB adapter, you may want to try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, making sure you have the latest drivers for it. If the PC uses its own internal adapter, try moving your PC to another place and see if that works.

Also, try unplugging and plugging the power in the D link router and then un-connect the telephone line and connect it again as sometimes a reset does the trick.

Make sure you know the password for your router (if you use encryption - which you really should to be safe from hackers) as if you uninstall the adapter drivers, it will ask you for the password for your router when trying to connect following the new installation. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

I am not very computer savvy but hopefully I can explain this problem I have two computers One is hooked up to high speed inernet - Windows XP The other is not - Windows Both have Network cards I bought a cable that connects the two I remove the high speed internet cable from the one computer and use this other cable to create a LAN connection between the two computers I was successful in creating a network and my son and I have played DOOM and Quake in team multiplayer mode TCP Then I got too many viruses in computer One and I was advised to completely connectivity no or Limited wipe out the hard drive and reinstall WIndows XP I did I thought I set up the network again the same way but now it doesn t work Here s what happens I connect the cable both computers load up the game On the multiplayer screen I will set up a game on Computer One Computer Two sees the game it needs to join from computer one But it never connects If I go the other way and use Computer Two to set up the game Computer One doesn t even see the game to join So there is communication going Limited or no connectivity on but something isn t right On Computer One when I m trying to connect to play the game I can see the computer struggling to acquire an IP address it then goes into the quot limited or no connectivity quot mode When I try to repair it it looks for a network address but still comes back with quot limited or no connectivity quot and tells me to see the Netork Administrator me The network neighborhood shows the two computers in it and the names I named them We used to play fine and I have tried to set up the home network with the Network wizard many times and the result is the same I may be doing something wrong but I think I remembered how I set it up the first time Please offer suggestions Which computer is the problem Could it be computer two Thank you nbsp

A:Limited or no connectivity

My suggestion is that you manually configure the IP address and SubNet mask on each system.

what you are experiencing is the computer is unable to find a DHCP server to give it the required ip/subnet/gateway configuration needed.

Manually configure each system with the following.
IP address
Default Gateway

IP address
Default Gateway

This will allow each computer to be on the same network and see each other.

Hey guys, ive got an annoying problem. Im using a belkin router, im using around 5-6 pc's, laptops and an xbox on the network. Sometimes when i turn on my xbox the whole network goes down which requires me to unplug the power cable to my router and put it back in (which is a little bit frustrating).

The main problem is when i load a program called bitlord. I can get around 20 mins - 3 hours of downloading before the router messes up (showing limited 'or' no connectivity on all the pc's around the house) which means i have to unplug the router and plug it back in and the network is fine.

Im not sure why this is. Is this my router settings or is there something very wrong with the router itself.

It doesnt seem to help even if i set up static ip adresses!

Any help is much appreciated!

A:Limited or No Connectivity

Hey Sloppy998

When you get a "limited or no connectivity" sign on your quick bar have u ever tried the "Repair" option by double clicking on your network connection? This has be known to resolve the problem in some cases as it reassigns new IP addresses to all the devices I think (this would then include the Xbox as well).... If you havn't tried this yet, you might want to before trying anything else....

So i bought my new 2 sea gate drives,and as before like i said the previous hds was randomly getting dced etc,now when i bought the new drives worked great then started to do the same thing as the previous drives,not being picked up in bios etc,then i decided to change the plug in my ultra x3 800 watt psu to a molex to sata connection,that worked picking up the hds no problem,

so does it sound like a wire issue or the psu giving the issue?cause as soon as i switched it to the molex to sata instead of the other sata connect in the utra x3 which uses different wires and different ports it worked.

a waste of 184 but i got better hds and i can just sell the 2 500 gig wd drives i got

A:SATA problem solved but a bit concerned

Ok yes it does seem like a faulty Power Supply

Also you should have just replied to your original thread:
Instead of making this new one.

But oh well !

Anyway, if the molex do not cause any issue, then you could continue with them
I wish you had tried that before. I didn't suggest it, because it is uncommon (very uncommon), especially with two !

A:PC Parts With a Limited Budget

all of the above would be good, although I would really think the E7200 would have a better price/performance ratio. that mother board does have good overclock abilities, and yes if u are not going to overclock the DDR2 1066 Ram will be faster although the speed will have to be set manually in most BIOSes and the voltage for it in the GIG.

A:Limited Connectivity Vista - Netgear 834gt

SOAD said:

Hi there, this is my problem:

I have a netgear wireless router 834gt which i have used for the past 8 months with no problems. I have a xp pc that connects wirelessly using a usb adapter, and a xbox 360 with wireless adapter that both work fine. I also have a windows 2000 pc that is wired in that also works fine.

Up until now, the vista machine that i use as my main pc has worked perfectly, able to connect at all times. This is WIRED directly into the back of the router. Today, vista comes up with the message "limited connectivity" on a unknown network. This means I am unable to connect to the internet or content on other pcs via wireless LAN.

Things i have tried so far:

tried different ethernet cable
tried different port on the back of the router (in case one had burned out)
reset the ipv4 and ipv6 settings to default
used vista's AMAZING self diagnosis tool to no avail
reset the router
updated the routers firmware (despite the fact it has previously worked)
uninstalled the network port drivers and installed them again, but cannot update driver due to no internet
attempted to create a new network in vista but it cannot find any attached devices
disabled firewall
used cmd prompt to reset the various networking things
attempted to system restore but for some reason their are no points present despite the fact it is turned on
booted in safe mode with networking, still same problem

all the other machines, be it either wired or wireless are able to connect, so im pretty sure this is a vista issue.
the only thing i have done to the pc since it has been working is defrag it with Perfectdisk2008, which also defrags the system/boot files when you next reboot the pc. the only thing i can think of is that this defrag of system files has somehow affected the networking (i know it doesnt make sense!)

It's a little confusing if you're using wireless USB NIC or wired onboard NIC. Follow the steps below:

First go into your BIOS and see if the device is active (only for onboard NIC wired or wireless) Not for USB external devices.

PCMICA Wireless NiC
To be really show disable on board wireless NIC and install a wireless PCMICA card. If you have one of those laying around not in use? Onboard wireless NIC do fail at anytime. Since you already done what most service repair techs would do. Then the next step would be the wireless nic is not working correctly or has stop.

Wired NIC
If this is onboard NIC disable it and use a PCI or PCI-E wired NIC to see if that fixes the problem you're having..

Note: Like with most onboard network devices they do fail or may last for years without any issues.

A:Limited or no connectivity

Are you using a Router?
Are you just using cable modem connected to a PC?
Have you updated the firmware on the router?
Have you updated the drivers for the network card on your desktop or laptop?
Do a power on and off on the cable modem then on the router if you're using it.
If you just have the cable modem contact comcast has let them remote into your cable modem to see if their is a problem with it. If they find a problem you can, get one from them or save some money and go to one of the electronic stores and buy a cable modem. If you buy one on your own you have to tell comcast the mac address on the unit so they can join you to their network otherwise you won't be able to get onto the internet.

My network has worked perfectly fine for around a year. Then on Tuesday, out of the blue i went to check my desktop computer (which i use a media/web server) and the little network icon by the clock had the yellow (!) saying limited or no connectivity.

I attempted to repair it but it gets stuck on assigning network IP, and ends up assigning it an adhoc IP. I have tried to manually assign it an IP, no change, i replaced the network cable. I even did a format and reinstalled XP. Same problem. All drivers have been uninstalled and updated drivers downloaded (using my MacBook, phew). Still no go.

Anyone got any ideas. I can only assume it may be a hardware issue if it still is giving me jip. ^^


A:Limited or No Connectivity. Unable to Repair

you dont say how the IP is assigned, where is the DHCP server ?

if its directly from a cable modem, then thats the fault, if its from a router then thats the fault. if its from a domain server then the fault is there.

what NIC is it, is it onboard or a PCI card,
