Q: Can someone tell me if such a product exists?

I found a really good deal on a wireless g router, but I use Vonage and the router doesn't have any phone jacks on it. I was wondering if there's a piece of hardware that would plug into one of the free LAN jacks on the wireless router and convert it to a phone jack or two?

Preferred Solution: Can someone tell me if such a product exists?

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Has Microsoft changed something in the latest April Windows Updates?
I create a default Windows 8 Enterprise VL image on my laptop in audit mode as I have always done previously.  Nothing has changed from my side.
When I install the image via WDS, everything installs fine.
When I use my WIM file to install via USB, it now comes up with:
The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.
right after selecting the install language.
I have checked EI.cfg and it is normal:
[EditionID]
Enterprise
[Channel]
Volume
[VL]
1
I then tried adding PID.TXT with my Enterprise KMS key and, rather than error it then prompts me for a product key.
Surely using the VL install media it should never ask for a product key.  It never has before. (And I've never had to before)
I prepped the image as normal using:
C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\Sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:C:\Windows\win8unattend.xml
Any ideas?  I can't but help thinking something has changed in the latest batch of Windows Updates.  It's quite frustrating as not all my machines are capable of PXE, so I have to use USB.
The reason I think it is a recent change, is if I do a default install and DO NOT do any Windows Updates, it all works fine.  Only when I install the latest WU does it start doing this.

A:[NEW] The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.

OK, So I've fixed it now, but I will still like to know WHY this has changed.

If i do this to my WIM, it then installs from USB:

imagex /flags "Enterprise" /info c:\temp\WIM\ME\install.wim "Win8Office2013Enterprise-x86" "Win8Office2013Enterprise-x86"

I wonder because I use the WDS capture image if this has somehow changed recently.
Very annoying, but now at least I can install my custom image :)

I picked up this lenovo laptop and shortly after I got it the HDD went out. I replaced the HDD and Installed a full version of Windows XP SP2 then used the Win 7 upgrade disc I bought. I did a clean install of the Win 7 then I activated it at that time without any issues. Some time after that I started getting the message it wasn't a genuine copy. I rearmed the time period but I'm not able to activate the copy again with the PID. I get the message this product is for upgrade and not a clean install. I need to find out if I will be able to register this copy or if I will need to start over from scratch. I did try putting in another PID but it didn't activate with it. I haven't been able to change the PID back due to the message I am getting about the upgrade not clean install.

I appreciate any help I can get with this issue.

So short story, I work at a college tech site that fixes student and faculty computers. A foreign exchange student from Japan with a Sony Vaio (most likely from Japan as well) managed to get a virus on his computer and he was blocked off our network. Our policy is that we wipe and reinstall the OS to ensure that the virus is gone. However, we didn't have any Windows 7 Home Prem media CDs so I downloaded a Win7 Home Prem 32bit iso off of MSDN and burnt it to disk. However, when entering the product key given on the bottom of the laptop(and I've checked 3 times now to make sure it's correct), I get a:

"Product key does not match the current Windows SKU" error.

Why is this happening? Do I need a certain burnt iso (from Sony in Japan?) because of the laptop's foreign origins or is something else causing the problem here?

A:Product Key Does Not Match Current Windows SKU (Foreign product key?)

Yes, you need a Japanese iso, they have regional editions.

I recently purchased a Precision M6800 (probably one of the last ) and now want to add an external slice-type battery. I did some searches on DELL web sites (my local Belgium one and some international ones) and on the www. This resulted in several product codes for what seem to be the same, or at least similar products: 451-11831 / 451-BBGJ / 312-1351. Can anyone tell me if those are all the same, or at least compatible products ?

Hello everyone,

So here goes the story. I had a couple of school files I needed to put into a CD-R. I inserted the CD-R into the drive and attempted to burn these files onto the CD.

I didn't know that the CD-R already had files on it. The School files were finished burning but when I opened up the CD I could only see the previous files that were on there.

The previous files that were on the CD before the school files were just random video clips, all in the avi. format. Now half of the files on the CD are still fine, they play normally on Windows Media Player. The other half of the files didn't seem to work.

I believed it was a common CD recovery issue so I attempted to recover the lost files, little did I know the files weren't even real avi. files. Here is the part that confuses me. The files that are not playable that come out to say "File Format not supported" do take up space. Some take up 1.6 mb, some take up 700 kb. It confuses me because the files take up space and claim to files yet they do not play.

When I tried using programs to fix the files it said the files were not even true avi. files. They still take up space though. As I looked farther into this problem I came to realize that the hex of the corrupted files seem to be quite different then the actual files that do work.
The good ones had "RIFF LIST or something like that" but the bad ones just had aslasga5s4f6asf15a1f... you know what I mean.

Created two new accounts with new names, transferred data, all is ok.

However, I would like to return to the old account names, so I changed login procedures to require typing in Account Name, which worked for the "lost accounts" so the profiles and data must be OK.

I have been reading posts on seven-/eight-/tenforums for years with pleasure and gratitude for all the solutions they provided. But my current issue is one of the strangest things I've encountered in all these years. Have been searching through a lot of posts but haven't found any similar issue (or solution for it) yet. So here it goes.

Symptom: the OEM product key in the registry of a Windows 7 Pro installation (laptop) does not correspond with the OEM product key in the laptop's BIOS.

Here's the situation in short. It concerns a laptop from a student friend of mine who asked me to upgrade her current Windows 7 Pro x64 OS to Windows 10. She couldn't tell me if the installation was the original OEM factory partition or if it (perhaps) could be a pirated version. Since I wasn't about to just upgrade to Windows 10 without checking the authenticity of the Windows 7 OS, I performed the regular checks: see if it was activated already by running the "Activate Windows" program (check), check under Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> System tab if the OS was already activated (check) and run Microsoft's online Validation Tool (check). Everything seems fine, the OS is activated and genuine.

Still, the COA sticker was missing. My friend didn't have any physical recovery media or other stuff with a license sticker on it. So I thought I'd check the product key stored in the BIOS and compare it with the product key in the registry. If they'd correspond, all would... Read more

I've got an app which streams images from a URL and saves them locally. I'm using the
System.Net.WebRequest and System.Net.WebResponse classes to achieve this. When the URL is valid it's fine, everything works OK, but when it's given an invalid URL, of a domain that doesn't exit, no exception is thrown and the request is redirected to openDNS. This leads to the stream writing out a small file which contains the contents of the openDNS response page. Clearly this is not the behaviour I'm after. If the URL is invalid I want an exception to be thrown. Even the statusDescription of the response says "OK". Does anyone know how I can get around this? BTW it's in C#.

Thanks

The DVD drive is usually OK, but sometimes it vanishes for awhile and then reappears; the only difference being that it will always open/close, even when the icon is missing. I tried uninstalling some burn programs, but to absolutely no avail. Ideas????

Hello! I have a medium sized network with several different OS's residing on it. Everyday a few of the computer will error with "A duplicate name exists on the network:" A quick Google search shows the same answer EVERYWHERE on the internet. So I changed the names of a few of the computers too something I knew was unique. Still though the problem persists/ it afters the two XP bases computers the most, but my main workstations (windows 7 sp1) has had this error a few times, although it appears to have left for a while. I have a feenas server but Active directory is not turned on. My router is a e4200. I was using DHCP server on there (and would very much still like to) although I have turning it off, rebooted both the router and the computers but to no avail... Thanks!

I've been getting this error message "duplicate name exist on network", so I went ahead and changed the registered name, but the problem still seems to exist. This is all happening at home. Now, I am using a wireless modem but I've changed the registered name twice since the "message," do anyone have any advice for me? Oh, my neighbors are using my wireless modem but we dont share the same name. Please help

I have had my HP laptop for about a year and a half running windows vista. Early on I only had AVG as an antivirus and I recall it popped up on one or two occasions showing I had a trojan on my computer--I don't recall the name. Recently I received Webroot antivirus and antispyware free from a friend and it detected a few things, that it identifies by these names: trojan wimad-m, trojan.gen, app/kilit-a, app coupbar-gen, and some random cookies. I have since downloaded many more programs. Here are what they are and what they found:

spybot- nothing
AVG 8.5- nothing
ccleaner-cleaned many files
malwarebytes- rogue.winantivirus
ad-aware- random cookies
super antispyware- random tracking cookies

As for my odd symptoms, I only have the webroot program running continuously and it has a small box that pops up in the lower right hand corner of my screen saying it is blocking my computer from accessing random sites... none of which I can recall right now because it doesn't happen all the time. There were however many many of them (hundred?) and yahoo searches of the websites showed they were not to be trusted. Also while I'm on the internet over a period of time, it progressively gets slower, and opening the task manager showes when its slow that iexplore.exe is using sometimes upwards of 500,000 k.

Recently I've run all the programs I listed earlier in both normal and safe mode and they don't find anything. I know trojans can be tricky thought and I would appreciate great... Read more

Hi!

I have a exe file in the Folder call FChart 4.0.1. I would like to write the batch script to check if FChart.exe exists in the FChart 4.0.1 folder then copy it to specified folder. NOTE: the issue is that I would like to have it generic therefore I want to avoid 4.0.1 and only look for FChart folder and then file inside. I've written script but it doesnt work and its not generating any error as well

IF EXIST "VMFChart *\VMFChart.exe" XCOPY "VMFChart *\*" "%vmpath%" /E /F /G /H

Thanks in Advance
 

A:IF Exists in Batch File

Is the file name FChart.exe or VMFChart.exe? The text says FChart.exe, the command says VMFChart.exe. Same with the folder name.

Easiest way is to try to switch to the FChart* folder. If that succeeds, you then check for the file and copy it.
If FChart 4.0.1 is a folder under the Program Files folder, this should work:

Code:
@Echo Off
PushD %ProgramFiles%
PushD FChart* 2>Nul
If Errorlevel 1 Goto _NotFound
If Exist FChart.exe XCOPY "FChart.exe" "%vmpath%" /E /F /G /H
Goto _Copied
:_NotFound
Echo FChartXXX folder not found in %CD%
PopD
Goto :EOF
:_Copied
Echo FChart.exe copied to %vmpath%
PopD
PopD
Note that if you have different versions (FChart 4.0.1 and FChart 4.0.2), it will switch to the the first one as listed in a Dir command that is sorted by name. Names with numbers aren't always listed in the same order as in Windows Explorer.

HTH

I was trying to add an HP 1200SE printer manually by way of linksys printer server(no Win 7 updated drivers).

After configuring it, it didn't work so I attempted to redo entries. I now get a message "port already exists" after I deleted the previous install.

How do I delete the already in use port so I can start over?

Windows 7 64 bit on just acquired Z570 Lenovo laptop.

Thanks for the help

A:Printer port already exists

You could always try avoiding the print server and turning on UPnP in your router, as long as your firewall is nice and tight, and printing that way direct through the workstation hosting the printer... although you may need to embed fonts in documents to get them to print correctly...

I'm not looking to record or stream or anything. I'm just wondering if there was a way to input my consol (say ps3) to my computer tower and just open a window that had my PS3 displaying to it, and I could move, minimize,maximize resize (with or without ratio lock). I'm aware of capture cards but like I said I'm not looking to record or stream, I just don't want to switch input sources on my monitor. If there is only capture cards can I be referred one that is extremely cheap but at least decent quality that is perhaps usb or something other than direct motherboard connection. Again I don't want to stream or record, just see my ps3 input on my desktop in windowed form. Almost like an emulator but with the actual device supplying the input instead of files on my computer.

Thanks for any serious answers.

I am not sure what you are trying to do? Do you have a laptop or desktop? Are you trying to output to your computers screen? I am unsure of how to live view but you may be able to with OBS but it will probably have a slight delay.

Hello,

I have been refered to this section by one of the trojan removal team.

I currently have a "duplicate name exists error" on startup (just prior to logging in).

I have attached a pic of the error message in hope that someone can shed some light on it.

The system I am using runs xp professional.

Many Thanks in advance

A:Duplicate name exists error

The computer you are trying to boot has the same computer name as another computer on your network. Unplug the Ethernet cable to this computer and start the computer up and log in. Right click My Computer/Properties/Computer Name/Change and change the name of the computer to something different then the other one. Restart the computer with the Ethernet cable plugged in.

and another listed for a "Standard Edition 2003 of MS Office" (62.27mb).
Can I delete the "Standard version"? or is it part of the "Professional" version?

 

A:Solved: two MS Office exists. Which do I keep?

Which do you have the CD's for?

When uninstall one you may need to do a repair or reinstall the other version.

And then order the HP recovery disk from hp or computer surgeon to reset back to factory install to get it working. I don't recall Win8 machine came with a HP recovery partition but you had to order the disk from HP or 3rd party-I could be wrong but that how I remember it. You can't use another system recovery because it is tied to that system COA and doing so would invalidate their COA something they wouldn't be happy to find out. You must use and get the Recovery disk matching your Serial number to restore your system.

This is bit of a general question. If you have passwords to all of your BIOS/UEFI settings, you have disabled  CD/USB boot , if you have your C: encrypted and good Windows password, is there still any possibility that someone can access your files/install something, if he has physical access, and even if we assume that he has the same laptop and switches the hards? And to remain completely undetected - without password reset or changing, so next time you log you to never notice that someone did something.
