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.)

Hi all,
I purchased a used IBM T41 laptop with WinXP and everything was working fine: cable and wireless internet, Dvd reader , wireless signal (like antenna) was flashing at the bottom of the screen, .
I had some problem and reinstalled OS: deleted partition and formatted into NTFS, install fresh WinXP.
I didnt get any error during installation, but some problem came after: internet, wireless connection, USB drivers, DVD reader and many other.
I couldnt find network adapter name in the Device manager.
To fix this problem I download drivers from IBM site and try one by one to install it.
Finally my internet start to work and I do not have any yellow question mark in Device Manger, but wireless internet and dvd writer do not work.
Network Adapter( in the Device Manader) and Network Connection display only cable internet device and do not have Wireless device type. Also, I have Wireless Link and Wireless Network icons on the Control panel.
Why wireless doesnt work? How can I fix it?
Is this possible that my laptop did not have wireless card before?
Is this possible that card stopped to work after reformatting to NTFS?

Thank you

Hi. I have four HP Envy notebook computers that I use regularly at work. Suddenly, starting up one day, all four computers stopped connecting to our wireless network. I tried at a different wireless network and neither of the computers still cant connect. I even tried a third and still no result. All of my other computers that runs Windows 10 (2 Acer, 1 Asus, 8 iMac) are still able to connect to all of the wireless networks. I even run Windows 10 on all 8 iMacs and they can still connect to all of the networks. And there hasnt been any chances to the wireless network. Strange thing is when I bring the computers to my home they can find my wireless network at home, all four of them with no problem. Ive tried all Windows repair and HP assistant and none of it works. Ive updated to the latest drivers and all I can think of. What can have happened. Ive noticed it has been a Windows update, but if that update have affected the network drivers,  how can it the work at home. I can also add that all four laptops work if I use Ethernet. Hope someone can help out. //Richard

Yesterday i installed a PCI wifi card in my pc after which my sound completely stopped working, i have tried updating drivers, selecting the right speakers in the windows control panel and pretty much any other suggestion i found on other sites. My concern is that i might have damaged my motherboard while installing the PCI (I hit it with a screw driver when trying to remove my GPU to fit the PCI in), and that this is the cause of the problem. Do you have any other ideas on how i can fix my sound in windows or should i just assume i damaged the motherboard and buy a soundcard/ a new motherboard?
 

A:Solved: PC sound doesn´t work.

The test is to remove the wireless card, as of course beofre you installed this the sound worked
If it then still does not work and there are no warnings shown in device manager for the sound then I think you can presume that you have indeed damaged the motherboard.
That said, is the sound coming from the integrated sound chip or from the GPU

Exact same problem on Windows 10.
Tried all of six steps above, including buying three new cables in step 6 one of those was the specific cable recomended by HP support.
Make 9 calls to HP  and 4 calls to Microsoft. HP signed me up for their paid Freinds Support and I called them 5 times.
I tried the monitor on a surface Book, and Asus Desktop and a Dell Destop. Did not work on any of them. I have installed the latest drivers multiple times and update the firmware in my laptops, Surface Dock and Asus Desktop.
HP connected to my Surface Book several times and installed two different - third psrty partitioning programs. One didn't work the other did but it was a trial version and wanted more money than I felt it should cost.
 
I'm using it as a single monitor with no partitioning. It mostly works but has some strange events where the mouse clicks are off by several undred pixles. rebooting fixes that.
 
Now I have atiny little spider runing arround under the front glass. Very distracting. How did it even get in there? I would have thought the area between the glass and the disply would be sealed arround the edges.

I think you mean you have a PS/2 mouse. Try another mouse, and see if that cures the problem. If not remove the mouse from Device Manager and on re-boot let Windows re-detect it to see if that helps.

Ok this one has me stumped. I have been using dual monitors for a couple years now on my work PC (MSI 5450, HP 6005 Pro MT) and when I left work on Friday 8/28 it was working perfectly.

Today I booted up my pc and the second montior (17" dell, my main is a 22" HP) is not displaying correctly. The windows are much larger and the taskbar is nearly off the screen. When I fullscreen a window I can see around 75% of the window.

I have tried changing the resolution to no avail. No matter what resolution I choose (1440x900 is what I have always used it on) the windows appear larger than the screen and I can only see 10% of the taskbar. It is as though my card believes it is a much larger screen than what it actually is.

I did upgrade the pc from 2gb to 4gb of ram before I left on Friday. I obviously had to disconnect all of the connections, but I did have it up and running before I left work and the screens worked fine.

Any ideas?

Essentially, everything is wrong with my computer and I have no way to fix it. The first problem arose about a year ago. My laptop battery suddenly wouldn?t register any charge, and could only be used while plugged in. I thought that might be a battery issue, but, a few months later, I replaced the battery and still had the same issue. Next, I started getting the ?blue screen of doom,? the Kernel Data Inpage Error. My laptop began to consistantly stop working after a few hours of use: webpages would stop loading, files wouldn?t open after being clicked, and then the mouse and screen would become unresponsive. Most of the time, I turn the computer off, unplug it, and restart it to resume use. However, if I left the computer on, it would either give a black screen reading ?all boot options are tried,? or the blue Kernel Data Inpage Error screen (the Kernel Data Inpage Error is the rarer of the two). It would last longerer the less I used it and after repeated sessions of rebooting after freezing, it would only last a few minutes. It also took a while after startup before it could open programs or load websites, but besides this, it still functioned as a proper computer, so, while frustrated and constantly attempting to find a solution, I dealt with it. However, recently, it?s begun to have errors opening any program not factory installed with windows or Google Chrome (I have no idea why Chrome, other browsers won?t open). Originally, I received an error box that... Read more

Title more or less says it all. Since upgrading to Windows 10, my VIA Envy24 chipset sound card will no longer play in 5.1 via SPDIF. Prior to the upgrade, it functioned flawlessly.

The strange thing is when I play the test tones for Dolby & DTS in my Sound properties, they play perfectly, reflecting that 5.1 via SPDIF is working fine. However, when I attempt to play a movie in Kodi, my receiver simply will not play in 5.1. I've double and triple-checked my Kodi settings (e.g., of course passthrough is enabled; I've selected the correct audio output device), and I know it's not an issue with my receiver.

I have the latest drivers from VIA, which unfortunately are not all that new.

I know there's the lengthy thread above about similar problems with Realtek cards, but haven't seen anyone mention the Envy24 chipsets. Is there a generic driver I could possibly use (I assume there's no way to use the Realtek driver with my card)?

Any ideas/feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there guys, first post here so please do mind I'm a newbie

So I've got an ASUS ROG G551JK laptop for almost 2 years already. Never had this problem before.

While I was playing CS:GO I tried to tweak the sound quality a little bit from the Realtek HD Audio Manager. The game was running and minimalized. The default sound quality was 24 bits, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality). I changed it to 24 bits, 192000 Hz and the headphones stopped working. At least while they are plugged in the laptop. I tried them with two different devices and they work just fine. So the problem is not in them for sure. Note that the build in speakers work just fine, so the sound card is ok...I think...or I hope so...

Immediately I quit CS:GO and tried to fix the problem by reinstalling the drivers of the sound card. I deleted the Realtek HD Audio Manager and reinstalled it again. Doesn't work. I deleted it again and left only the default drivers that Windows installs to run, doesn't help either. I installed previous versions of the Realtek HD Audio Manager, but didn't help. I even restored the whole Windows... without effect. I tried putting the Headphones as a default device, and it didn't work either. Updated the DirectX 12 to the latest possible version, didn't work. I spent at least 4 hours by searching all kinds of forums and threads and tried everything possible, again without any effects.

So... the current situation is this:

Open Device Manager, remove driver and device for your sound chipset, open up System in Control Panel, Click on Advanced System Settings to open System Properties, Click on Hardware tab, click on Device installation settings, change to no to not allow Windows to automatically install driver and device when you reboot, click ok, reboot, log in, install the correct driver for that device off of a USB stick by running the .exe file for it. Then reboot and everything should be back to normal.

Recently I had no wireless connection available and tried to connect to a wired connection. No success. Tried to get to the original driver for NVidia nforce network connection, and it worked!

Chances are that when you installed the Netgear driver and utility you told the utility that you wanted it to manage the wireless. Its icon should be in the Notification Area--double click on it, go to the Network (I'm going from memory here) tab, find the network you want and connect to it.

I recently switched ISPs (going from DSL to Cable), and that's when everything went wrong. In order to get the new network up and running, I needed to use a new router. I setup this network and everything seemed fine (all computers could see and connect to the new network, and even the printer could see, and connect to the new network). For whatever reason, I could not get any of the computers (one laptop running Windows 7, and one running OSX Snow Leopard) to see the printer wirelessly (works fine via USB). It would always say "printer offline."

Uninstalled an re-installed all printer drivers on all machines (printer is an HP Photosmart C7280 all in one).

The printer network diagnostic page came back clean indicating that everything was connected correctly, but when I pinged the IP address of the printer from the windows machine I'd just be bet with a "timed out" message.

This lead me to think it was something to do with the router, so I bought a $30 D-link router and set everything up again. Exact same scenario. Even after setting the network up with no security options (no WEP or WAP security).

This lead me to do a hard reset on the printer. After booting it up again I ran the network setup wizard (via the printer's LCD screen), and tried to connect to the network. This time however, the printer won't connect the the network at all! I printed the wireless network diagnostics page and it fails the "No Filtering" test. ... Read more

I thought I have met this problem before before my two wireless adapters both stopped working.

PCI-E INTEL 5300
TP-LINK WN821N

My case is a little different from those I found on this forum.

1. When I upgraded my thinkpad x200 to win7 64bit, I don't have "Wireless Network Connection", but I fixed it by stopping one setting of Kaspersky and it came back, so when I first found my PCI-E wireless didn't work, I thought the same thing happened, although I didn't remember the details, I tried the Kaspersky, don't work.

2. I updated the drivers, uninstall-install, start-stop-start WLAN AutoConfig... I have done a lot that can be searched on line, never worked for me.

3. Tragedy happened, I adjusted several common options on BIOS, then after several tries I made to make 5300 work, USB wireless died Don't know how to recover it, and back to my laptop again.

Could anyone here help me out? Really appreciate it! I have spent two days on this stuff, if no one can do this, I guess the only way is to reinstall the OS, that's the least thing I want to do.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mic

PS: Unavailable wireless adapters have all zero Mac addresses, also can't be found in control panel.

A:PCI-E intel 5300 wireless doesn't work. Then the USB wireless adapter

Problem solved. Thanks anyway.

I got a new Linksys E2000 router a few weeks ago. It works fine with all the wireless laptops I have in the house, however I can not get an internet connection on this particular desktop PC using a Linksys Wireless-G PCI Network Adapter.

I've tried updating the driver but to no avail.

Any help would be apreciated.

Thanks.

Shouldn't be a problem unless you have the router set to use 'N' only mode.

What encryption are you using? Have you tried connecting w/o encryption?

Win XP recently decided not to recognize my cd or DVD.
I can gain access via a boot disk with cd drivers. I tried to install a backpack cd off the parallel port and the same thing happens. I'm assuming XPs drivers are corrupt but I don't know how to get them......
 

A:win XP doesn’t recognize CD or DVD

If you have recently installed or uninstalled a CD writing application, check out http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;270008, this references EZ-Creator, but other CD applications can corrupt the same filter values.

Hello,

For some context about myself, I will say that I?m new when it comes to PC knowledge. Posting on forums is also a new thing for me. But anyway, for about a month now, my PC won?t turn on when I press the power button. The lights aren?t on and the fans aren?t spinning. Then, after a while, when I come back from work, I see that my PC is on. Fans spinning and everything. I can then do my work and play games normally. I live alone, so no one is turning it on while I?m away. I should say that my PC doesn?t turn off suddenly when I?m using it. Everything goes smoothly until I decide to shut down for the night and then try to turn it back on in the morning. At which point, the cycle begins again.

Hello,I have a B50-30 laptop, which currently isn?t working; when I switch it on there is nothing at all on the screen (not even the Lenovo?s logo that would normally be there when turned on) yet the fan make the same noises they would when I turn it on and things work. The power light remains on like normal, but my keyboard also seems unresponsive as I can?t even get the caps lock or number lock buttons to light up. Also when I plug in/unplug the laptop it makes a single loud beep sound.  It is is no longer under warranty, so I wanted to post here to ask for some advice, as I?m worried sending it off to Lenovo could be pricey, and I?m struggling to find details of repair things on the website. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, as it?s exam season so I really need it working, but I am not super technical! Thanks in advance

A:B50-30 Doesn’t boot up

Some things to try... Detach any USB devices or external monitors etc. and remove any disks in the CD/DVD drive.Shut down the computer completelyRemove the AC adapterRemove the battery packPress and hold the power button for 15-30 seconds.Reinstall the batteryAttach the AC adapter, but do not press the power button.    Instead, use a pen tip or paper clip to press the NOVO button (a small recessed button between CD tray and USB port on right side of laptop) to power up the laptop.If it powers up, see if you can enter "BIOS Setup" from the NOVO menuIf it will not power up using the NOVO button, try removing the optical drive by following the instruction on page 34 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual linked below, and then try to boot up the system again. If it still is failing to boot, then you may have hardware issue, such as a bad HDD or system/motherboard.   . Lenovo B50-30/B50-30 Touch/ B50-45/B50-70/B50-80 Hardware Maintenance Manualhttps://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/b50_30_b50_30_touch_b50_45_b50_70_b50_80... Best of luck,

So the other day my wireless stopped working. It just wouldn't show any wireless networks were available. So I uninstalled my wireless driver and the reinstalled it and it fixed it. Now it seems like every other day it quits out on me and I have to uninstall the driver and do it again. Is there a permanent fix for this?

Kind regards,
Cameron

I have a samsung CD writer and the other day I tried to burn music on a rewritable CD ROM (TDK) but I always get the message that the CD rom is protected against writing. I use the software Roxio Platinum v 5.
Plain CD roms (non rewritable) I can burn.

Is there something I have to do whit the CD roms before use?
 

A:CD writer doesn´t write CD RW

Not sure on the origin of the message, but writing music to play in a stereo using a CD-RW is not always a good idea. Very few stereos can play them, even fewer can play them reliably.

Hi

Computer about 6 years old working fine until now. I started with noticing the clock only working when the PC was turned on so I replaced the battery on the motherboard with a new to fix the problem. But now when I start the PC it first makes a long beep and then nothing else happens......no picture....

I tried with another video card but it made no difference......

Computer:
INtel 440BX AGPset, PII 350MHz
Award BIOS

Please anyone, help!

/Mike
 

A:Computer doesn´t start

You may try reseating the RAM and VGA card. Make sure they are securely seated. Also, make sure there are no PCI cards halfway in/out.
To troubleshoot, remove excess PCI/ISA cards like modems, NIC cards, sound cards. Once you get the computer to boot normally, reinstall the cards. Hope this helps.

Ok so,
My laptop ACER ASPIRE
Won?t boot up.
It started with a screen replacement.
Went well, everything worked.
Week or two later it crashed. Needed to format the drive to boot. It worked after that.
Then about a month later it done it again. It crashed. Wouldn?t work until I booted it again.
I removed the hard drive and connected it to an external hd converter. And hooked it up to another laptop. It works and reads correctly via usb to anothe running laptop.

The original laptop turns on and loads up the ?acer? screen, when you turn it on without a hard drive (which is more than what it does with a hard drive) But then the screen goes black. (The backlight on)

I really could do with getting this laptop back up and running correctly

Any ideas?
