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: Bluetooth/IR in XP: How to Enable?

Silly question, but is there a switch on your laptop to switch the IR on and off? Have a look.

Forgive me if this seems insulting, but when I've tried to sort out wireless issues on laptops before, the problem tends to be that the person hasn't got the switch set to "On".

I have a Sony Vaio with a switch on the front that turns WIRELESS on/off. Whenever I turn the switch 'off', I get a pop-up box that says something like 'Alert: Wireless has been turned off'. The pop-up also had an option to turn off this notification. I turned off this notification a week ago but now i would like to turn it back on. I have been looking at a lot of settings on my computer but I don't know how to turn it back on.

Does any one know how to turn the notification back on?

I have an HP Pavillion dv6t -2000. At one point I was able to use bluetooth. I had a hard time setting it up and I think it was when I eventually went into the setup menu before windows launched and enabled bluetooth device that it worked. Now it doesn't appear to have ANY options for me to configure my computer. There are boot options and an option to reset to default. I've tried both. Also, when I go to system information my bluetooth ID is blank. When windows launches in my wireless assistance there is no bluetooth to enable. I have also tried to download bluetooth drivers both from broadcom and from HP, but both tell me I must first enable my bluetooth device --- which is nowhere to be found. Please help. - Lexi

my laptop keyboard broke down a while ago, as of now, i don't have extra money for me to be able to replace it. now im using USB keyboard only, since my current keyboard doesn't have a fn key in it, i can't open the shortcut for the bluetooth using the keyboard.

1. is there any other way to open/enable it without using the keyboard?
2. i also can't see the BLUETOOTH device in the Device Manager, is that normal?

**i can use my bluetooth before my laptop broke down. and i saw in another forum that if you cant enable the bluetooth physically, the windows will not detect it but the forum is abt windows tablet so im not sure if it also applies with laptops.

Could anyone tell me the advantages and disadvantages of disabling cache writing on the priming HDD? Thanks in advance

A:Cache Writing - Enable or not to enable?

I think the default setting is usually to enable it?

I have a dim understand of it from memory. As I recall, enabling it provides slightly faster performance but has a slight risk of data corruption in cases of a bad shutdown--like from a power outage. It can also have consequences when using RAID.

The geekiest thing to do is to enable it, but use a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) to eliminate the risk from power failure.

Me? I've always left it enabled and haven't knowingly suffered any negative consequences.

I've recently installed a wireless lan in my office. I have Roadrunner cable coming into their router which in turn is attached to a Linksys router. I have one desktop (Dell) running XP Pro hardwire to the router. I also have a laptop and another desktop connected via wireless. I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing. So, how do you allow acces from one computer to another. I've set them all up on the same workgroup.....what am I missing? I've been able to send print from the wireless laptop to the printer attached to the wireless desktop. It's just the folders I'm having problems accessing.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

A:To enable or not to enable (file sharing that is)

Where exactly have "I've seen all over the place that you should not enable file sharing".

If you don't that is fine. But then you can't share files. Just a choice to make.

With a router you should be reasonably protected.

it allows me to use dual band mode and it shows that blue tooth is present but disables it claiming interference with 2.4 GHz band. 
now i have had blue tooth dongles installed working while using 2.4 GHz band before with no issues, so i don't get the issue now.

Hey guys,

So i spent the entire day trying to figure out why my Bluetooth installed fine but after one restart it disappeared and it wouldn't come back. I finally figured it out that the FN+F2 (wireless/bluetooth switches) is what enables/disabled it HAHAHAHAHA.

default (after startup): WiFi on / BT off
first time: WiFi on / BT ON yay~!
second time: WiFi off / BT on
third time: WiFi off / BT off

and repeat.

I hope this helps people with their bluetooth issues =)

I recently installed the latest version of the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack (v9.10.32T) for one of my desired applications to properly function. However, connecting my Bluetooth headphones through Toshiba's bluetooth manager does not seem to support the media buttons on the headset. These include Play/Pause and seek buttons. Before the Bluetooth stack, when I used my default bluetooth driver for connection, these controls had worked fine.

Also, there does not seem to be a specific setting to fix this in the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack Options.
How would I go about getting these controls back?

One of my friend in India purchased "HCL ME Sync 1.0 (U3) Tablet (WiFi, 3G via Dongle) by HCL" online . It says in many places that it supports Bluetooth but when I saw this I couldn't find any option for the bluetooth and don't know how to turn it on. Is there any one who has purchased it and help me out to turn the bluetooth on or how can we transfer files with some other bluetooth device. Even I couldn't find much good information on internet.

I don't see it listed in the spec sheet, nor the user guide.

On both of my android 4.2 devices, Bluetooth is listed after Wi-fi in Settings. I would think it's the same w/ android 4.1. It's possible the tablet doesn't have bluetooth.

In windows 10 mobile, I can go into my bluetooth devices, and 'disconnect' a specific device. In Windows 10, I can only 'remove' the device (which I don't want to do) or turn off BlueTooth altogether.
Does anybody know a way to just disconnect a device? For instance, I want to have my headphones connect to my phone instead of the PC.

A:How to disconnect a bluetooth device without turning off bluetooth.

'Remove device' is probably not the best choice of words they could have used on this! When you close the process (i.e. 'disconnect' your headphones) on your PC, you are performing the same function as what you describe on your phone. You are not actually removing the device, just closing the process. I hope that makes sense!

When I tried the bluesoliel software,it disabled the native bluetooth
service in 7 and did not reenable it when it was uninstalled.
Try this.........
1. Click Start and type services in the Search programs and files text area

2. Click Services in the Programs list that appears

3. From the Services window, browse the list of services and find the Bluetooth Support Service

4. Double-click Bluetooth Support Service

5. Select Automatic from the Startup type and then click OK

I am having difficulty to get my laptop paired with a Bluetooth enabled cell phone. If I attempt to connect from the cell phone to my pc, a key code is asked for and needs be entered.

My question is how I can get this key code which needs be entered on the Bluetooth Device. On the laptop I navigated from Control Panel and to Bluetooth Devices, then clicked Add Wireless Device, but no device is detected even though the Bluetooth on the cell phone was turned on. Device Manager indicates drivers for the Bluetooth device are installed correctly.

You can't be too careful! I disabled DEP (temporarily, was my intention!) according to this advice online:

How to disable Data Execution Prevention
1. Step Open the command line: “Start” -> enter “cmd.exe” into search field and hit enter.
2. Step Simply run the following command to disable it:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff
3. Step You can enable it again with:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOn

Disabling DEP as per above was straight forward, but having done my bit of troubleshooting, I wanted to re-enable it; but I can't. The 'Turn on DEP' boxes are greyed out and the above switch doesn't work, not even in Safe Mode.

Is it 'safe ' to leave things as they are? If not, how do I get DEP back? System Restore didn'r bring it back either!

Hello guys,

1: Restart the unit
2: Start pressing F9 upon start up
3: Select EMS enabled and press Enter
4: It will say; Windows is loading files
5: Select Next on the Asus Preload wizard
6: Select ?Recovery to the first partition only? and press Next and Finish
7: Click on OK to reboot the unit, once rebooted it will ask to setup the unit again

I've been trying to do that, but when I press F9 the only options i get are: WINDOWS 7 and MEMORY DIAGNOSTIC TOOL.

The question is: how do i enable EMS.

Recently the yellow bar in IE says that IE add ons are disabled. In tools there is an entry to enable or disable add-ons but it is grayed out. I found another access to add-ons and they are all enabled. Since this has occured I can not play flash. I downloaded a new flash player but it still won't play and I get a pop-up on some websites telling me I must add flash in order to play animations or videos. I am not advanced enouhg to do complicated things in the registry. any ideas?

A:Cannot enable IE add-ons.

just download and use mozilla, 10X better and arguably safer and more secure type of browser (it runs and loads pages faster on my pc's too!) and the add-ons and skins are better and much easier to install, use and navigate.....

Often times uninstall and re-install of IE will work if you are dead set on IE, but i would never recommend using IE unless your are connecting to the MS Update site in which case you CANT use Mozilla. Are your Active X controls enabled and allowed for all sites etc.... this may have something to do with your problem. The more you troubleshoot the better you get, and the better chance you'll get the desired result. What kind of Anti-spyware/Anti-virus software do you use?? have you run a scan in a while, it could be a browser hijacker some kind of mal-ware, in which case using Mozilla would most likely solve the problem entirely.

Spycatcher express and AVG are both free and great utilities, they are the only two i use on my systems....

Hey all, having an issue where my WNA3100 (Netgear) will not enable through the adapter settings.

I'm running windows 7 64bit, i have the latest driver downloaded and installed, the device is recognised by device manager as well as adapter settings and properties menu, and it is still unable to be Enabled, the option is simply greyed out.

I've tried restarting the computer with the adapter unplugged, uninstalling the driver software (Which, even without a connection, the computer updates it to the current driver instantly without consent) and even gone as far as removing my previous adapter driver and hardware from the computer completely.

I'm at a total loss. I have no clue what could be causing the system to recognise the adapter, update it, but will not enable it. Any help would be extremely appreciated.

A:WNA Will Not Enable

First, does your computer have a built-in wifi chip. If it does then your problem might be occurring because windows probably does not allow simultaneous use of two wifi devices (I've never tried that before so I don't know if it's true). If not, your device is probably damaged or you might have accidentally changed a setting that is keeping your adapter from being enabled. You can try rolling back the device driver. See if that works.
