Zoom Wireless-n on Windows 7

Q: Zoom Wireless-n on Windows 7

I'm running a Toshiba 1905-S301 laptop (2 gig speed, 1 gig mem, 300 gig hd) with Windows 7 (32 bit) I thought I'd try the Zoom 4411 wireless-n USB adapter. It works great and I have the advertised transfer speed (54) for using on a USB 1.1 port.

My problem happens when I shut down Windows when the adapter is plugged in. A few seconds after the normal shutdown sequence begins I get a blue screen showing a system minidump. It never goes into shutdown, but instead reboots and brings up Windows 7 again with the failure noted as an unexpected shutdown sequence. If I pull the adapter and then go for a shutdown the process takes longer than usual (over a minute vice 15 seconds), but it eventually completes the shutdown and doesn't reboot on its own. Nothing appears to not work after the reboot and I can reacquire a network connection with the Zoom device any time I want.

Booting and shutting down with the adapter never installed is normal. An interesting failure, but one I'd like to eliminate.

Preferred Solution: Zoom Wireless-n on Windows 7

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.)

Hello,

I need some help stopping the disconnecting. Its very anoying.

As the title states, my PC is disconnecting from the BT Home Wireless Hub.
It doesn't do this all the time and from what I can gather it only disconnects when downloading/uploading some amounts of data. Specifically Playing MMO's (EVE-Online, Tibia, Star Sonata, WoW) and Downloads.

Network Adapter Zoom Wireless-G USB adapter (192.168.1.64)

I have the latest drivers for this device and the hub is working fine.
The usb adapter is on a 3M Belkin USB Extension cable.
The Hub is on the other side of the house and on the second floor.

The understanding I have is that it disconnects due to low signal strength, but I have a strength of 30-40% most of the time, lowest being 10%. Link Quality always sits between 40%-100%.

Example: When I load EVE-Online Client, the client gets the status of the server cluster (online + number of players or offline, etc) This is when it starts to disconnect.

The connection just drops no matter what the link quality or signal strength. This happens constantly every 2 minutes.
Tedious solution for the random disconnection: when the ZoneAlarm Icon (my firewall) stops showing the data traffic of the connection, click Apply on the Zoom Wireless-G application. It looks like this refreshes the connection.

Parts of the setup for my PC that I cannot change.

I've a thin spot on my head trying to figure this one out. I have a reasonably happy 4 computer network at home all running Win2000 sp4 tied to a Zoom X6 DSL modem/router.
3 are wired and one is wireless - everyone sees the internet and each other (using passwords)
Now I'm trying to add a Compaq laptop running Win2K and a Linksys cardbus wireless-G adapter and not having much luck. If I set the card to dynamic IP and auto DNS, I get no connection to access point and, of course, no internet. I have no encription set, reports correct SSID, and signal is good. 'Ipconfig/all' lists the IP address as 0.0.0.0 with IP Routing and WINS proxy listed 'Yes', DHCP 'Yes', Subnet 255.0.0.0, and Default gateway and DNS servers are blank. I have tried 'ipconfig/release' and it reports that the "addresses are already released". I then did 'ipconfig/renew' and it reported an error "could not perform request - please remove NIC cable and reboot". So I shut down the card, removed it and rebooted, reinstalled and no change.
I then went to static IP addresses and set it acording to what the router was reporting - I'm not sure if this is what HAS assigned or WILL assign if it sees the card. Anyway, I WAS able to get to the access point with static IPs but still no internet. I checked the browser setup (Firefox 1.5.xx) to make sure 'direct connection to internet' was checked.

Hi

Im currently using a Zoom 3G Wireless-N Router with a MF112 Mobile Broadband Dongle on the 3 Network.

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31v7Dpbi9eL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

ive been using this setup for over a year now and have had no issues.

I have 3 appliances that are sharing the wireless internet connection.

Iphone - Xbox360 and a Windows 7 Netbook

Yesterday i found that i couldn't establish an internet connection, i had connection to the zoom 3g router but no internet access.

To my great delight my iphone also refuses to right me internet access. A connection to the router is obtained but just no internet.

My partners Xbox 360 though has no problem accessing Xbox Live

i just dont get it.

Also whilst a connection is established to the router over my Acer aspire one Nbook. my small Gmail/Gtalk icon in the system tray suggests that im online and available. and can interact with contacts.

While this confuses me i fire up either Chrome or Fox and wait for my google.co.uk search homepage to appear in which it doesnt. if i load up a Bookmark like say Filehippo. it loads but the webpage is missing icons and its graphical interface.

I tried resetting the routers settings. rebooting my Iphone and Nbook.... Turning off the Xbox360 and then trying to see if i can obtain internet access. Nothing i try seems to solve this annoying issue. its driving me mad.

i havent installed / updated or accidental removed anything that could have caused this.

I heard that Windows 8 includes a new feature called Semantic zoom. Is it possible to play with this feature if I install Windows 8 Ultimate and by using mouse keys.

I want to know whether this zoom feature only works with touch devices.

A:Semantic zoom in Windows 8

Hello Windowsguy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Not sure mouse keys would work with Semantic Zoom.

The Semantic Zoom interaction is performed with the pinch and stretch gestures (moving the fingers farther apart zooms in and moving them closer together zooms out), or by holding the Ctrl key down while scrolling the mouse scroll wheel, or by holding the Ctrl key down (with the Shift key, if no numeric keypad is available) and pressing the plus (+) or minus (-) key.

If you like, the links below can help give more details and information about Semantic Zoom.

Recently purchased an Acer 5733.

Why will my new higher zoom setting not remain as such, until I wish to reset.

It seems erratic from one web page to another, and often automatically returns to 100%.

Sometimes when I return to previous viewed web pages, the higher setting will have remained.

If I set at 125% I want it to stay there!!

Hi,
Does anyone know how to manipulate the modern UI zoom feature in windows 8.1 ? This either by script or by regkeys?

Some more details about the problem I have :
14"laptop with Full HD monitor (1080p) -> windows decides that de default zoom behaviour should be 150%...

Now I have found how to counter it in the desktop and desktop Application (add regkey : DesktopDPIOverride) there I can set the value to -2 and it will be 100% zoom and the user can still change it.
Now the ModernUI and Lockscreen (not start screen) don't follow this zoom. To change this you need to go to pc settings - pc and device - display. and there at the bottom you can change the zoom from default to smaller. What I would like is to modify this
behaviour so that the default becomes what It should be small. (the default value it has when you have a 700p pannel of the same size)
This is quite urgent and I hope someone got an answer on this... I hate how windows forces a laptop to look like a tablet :/

Hi,

Last night, somehow my zoom was changed. My start menu used to have only about 4 rows and now there are six rows and the tiles are now all much smaller. Generally everything is smaller and a new registry entry has appeared in


Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell\Grid
Called 'Layout_MaximumAvailibleHeightCells' with a hexadecimal value of 6. I know this is something to do with my problem as I have seen a few tutorials on changing the amount of rows. If I change it, it reverts back to 6 again when I log in to my account. I have tried changing the resolution, but it was the same before the sizes changed and as I have Eyefinity I can't put it down as that would make it repeat on all three screens, and the resolution is at its maximum. It is not to do with the 'Change the size of all items'. It applies the login screen as well.

TL;DR Everything is smaller, and nothing to do with resolution/accessibility, nor the AMD Catalyst Control Panel.

Specs on screens:

3 x 1920x1080p Monitors
AMD Radeon HD 6870 GPU

Hi (and welcome to the forums)


Why not try a run of System Restore? It usually works fairly well for getting settings back to previous values, and it doesn't bother your personal files.
_______________

The steps below are for computers running any version of Windows 8 except Windows 8 RT (which mostly is used on the Microsoft tablets called "Surface" ... ["Surface Pro" tablets run Windows 8 Pro]. System Restore isn't available for Windows RT.

I'll assume that your computer isn't running Windows RT, and is running Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro.
_______________

To restore your PC using System Restore

1. From a touchscreen, swipe in from the right edge of the screen to produce the "charms" bar, and then tap the Search magnifying glass icon. (Or, if you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down to produce the "charms" bar, and then click Search.) Enter Recovery in the search box, tap or click Settings, and then tap or click Recovery.

2. Tap or click Open System Restore, and follow the prompts. Pick a restore point from before the unwanted changes.
_______________

If the changes came about without any action on your part, you might also want to scan for malware, as its presence can cause all sorts of unpredictable behavior. Check in Device Manager, too, in case you might have a device (especially your display or graphics/video card) whose driver is generic rather tha... Read more

And i don't find any settings to reduce the pinch zoom sensitivity (except enable/disable it).For now the sensitivity are too high, barely to make zooming on browser back to 100% (micrometer precision required) or google maps is zooming too fast.

OK, I've checked the other threads re: Zoom Browser and have tried all the tricks and ideas, but no success. First I kept getting an error message about not being registered and now it's the wrong string or something. I've d/l'ed the newest version and it DOES NOT work. Shut down my firewall: no success.

(I'm HIGHLY considering NEVER again receiving any more updates from Microsoft as I tend to spend more time fixing things after the updates than the updates are worth.

I've owned this laptop for quite a while and had been using Webcam Central to control the Integrated Webcam on my Alienware M17x R4.   I never had any issues using Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or even Windows 10 until my system updated on 8/20/2016 with a scheduled Windows 10 update.
After the windows 10 update my system restarted and the next time I went to use my webcam I noticed that I couldn't control the pan / zoom / or tilt or alter any of the settings in webcam central.  If I attempt to change anything it automatically changes back instantly.  For example of I move the slider to zoom, or attempt to change the pan, it auto goes back to where it was and will not allow me to change the settings.
I also notice that my mouse pointer flickers over the webcam central GUI, meaning, there seems to be some issue with the GUI after the windows 10 update, I assume is also whats causing the settings not to be changed.
I have tried uninstalling both the drivers and software and reinstalling to no avail, same problem is present after reinstallation of both drivers and the webcam central software.
Wondering if anyone else has run into this and whether there was some type of resolution.
I was able to get the pan / zoom / tilt working with 3rd party webcam software, however I would prefer to go back to using webcam central.

I am not sure what this is called, but we've all seen this on TV (especially on shows like 20/20) where they take a regular picture...and as the picture is zoomed in, the subject of the photo is almost 3d, standing out from the background. How is this done? Is there a tutorial online anywhere?
I like creating photo slideshows and being able to do this would be nice...thanks!!
 

A:3d zoom? How?

Can't give you a step by step for a particular program, but basically you would start by duplicating the image, then cutting out the main subject.

So you have the original image on the bottom layer, and the cut-out subject on the top layer. If you do nothing else, no one would know that there are two layers, because they are identical except for the missing background in the top layer.

Apply the zoom-blur effect to the bottom layer. Now pretty much anything you do to the cut-out subject on the top layer will make it seem to pop out of the background. Lighten it. Enlarge it a bit. Add a subtle drop shadow. That's what I did to the still image attached. Because its visual properties are now different from the original image in the bottom layer, it'll just jump out at you, and it doesn't take much.

In video you can push in slowly on the cut-out subject, which is I think what they do on the tv programs.

Q: Zoom

Hi everybody

I fell asleep for a couple hours doing homework last night on my computer. When I woke up, everything on my computer is small, almost like it is zoomed out. This includes the desktop, google chrome, the mouse the startup page etc.

I have tried changing the zoom, which hasn't worked, and also going into display settings, where my zoom is at 100% and my resolution is at 3840x2160, however it is not letting me change the resolution.

The computer is a Lenovo Flex 5 running Windows 10

Thanks in Advance

Now this is really, really, really annoying. Default Internet zoom setting is 100% which makes the screen way too small to see. As a result I have to set the zoom at 200%. Well, up until recently I've had no trouble with my new computer. After setting the zoom to 200% it's stayed that way. Now though it's taken to going back to default every 5 frickin' minutes! I had a previous Win7 computer that did exactly the same thing, it kept on resetting to default. Drove me absolutely nuts! Once every so often I can put up with, but not all the time!!!! Can anyone tell me what's up and how to fix it before I completely lose it!

Hi, Chips!

Are you zooming with your browser or the OS? Which browser are you using?

Would changing your display resolution help you see the screen contents more clearly?

We have a computer with a dual vga video card (nvidia). One going to monitor, and the other going to projector. It works fine, except the projector is mounted to the ceiling and cannot be easily moved, and we want the image a little smaller to fit within the border of a smart board. The projector is already zoomed out all the way. Are there any software solutions available that might be able to zoom? Thanks.

Does anyone have the new Olympus D-540 Zoom?

Wondering if anyone else sees pics on the LCD ok, but when transferred to PC, the images look dark.
 

A:Olympus D-540 Zoom

I had the very same problem. Pictures are terrific if you don't use the LCD but poor if you use it. I still don't know why that happens.

I think this is the right place to post.

Anyway all my icons on my desktop are zoomed in, when i zoom them out the space between them is huge and on all applications everything is zoomed in. My start bar has text that is really zoomed in. Even the minimise, restore down and red cross in the top right corner of my browser are zoomed in. Any ideas on how I can make this smaller. ( I have already tried changing my resolution).

Thanks

Mark
