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,
I am having trouble getting an HP laptop to automatically connect to our home wifi. It won't connect either on start up nor after it has woken from sleep mode. Both times it has to be manually connected.
I have checked the 'automatically connect' in the wireless networks properties box but it seems to uncheck itself after it shuts down.
This is the 2nd router that it won't connect to whereas all the other wireless computers etc we have have no problem connecting to the router
If someone would be kind enough to suggest a fix I would be much appreciative.
Thanks.

You said that you "manually connect it". What do you do?

Ok I have two PCs on my network, both have Windows Vista Home 32bit

When I try to open or explore the other PC from either PC it prompts for a password and log on. We did not set up a password or log on for either PC. How do we go about disabling or bypassing this.

Thank you in advance

Evening everyone. I know you've heard this before... but I SOOOOO hope someone can help me!

Ok, here's my setup... I'll start really basic since I don't know how much info you need...

I've got cable internet coming into a motorola modem... then into a motorolo wireless router. I have 4 computers running XP hardwired (via ethernet cables) into the router. We'll call these Computers 1, 2, 3 and 4. I also have 1 desktop downstairs with a wireless internet connection running on XP. This will be Computer 5. And lastly I have a laptop (wirless connection as well) running on VISTA..... aka Computer 6.

I have a printer hooked up to Computer 5, which I'd like to share with all the other computers. So I started off setting up a Home Network. I ran the Network Setup Wizard on all of the computers. Computers 1, 2, 3 and 4 went smoothly. I'm having trouble with the two wireless comuters, though. When I try to "View Workgroup Computers" from #5, I get the following error message:

Ouaznet is not accessable. You may not have permisson to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission. The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available.

End of error message. BTW, OUAZNET is the workgroup name.

Now, for Computer 6, which is running Vista and also wireless... I just cannot even see any other computers on Ouaznet workgroup.

Any suggestions???? Keep in mind that... Read more

Hi,

I'm helping a friend to set up their BT Home Hub but can't seem to get the PC to connect to it. Unfortunately I have little experience in this so am not really much help!

Everything is wired up correctly and the right lights come on on the Hub when its switched on. The software installs fine but it cannot find a connection.

The PC is running windows XP and used to connect fine with a BT voyager router. There is various security software installed on the computer.

My guess is that something already installed on the computer is causing the problem but I don't know what. I don't use my windows machine to connect to the internet so I'm not really sure what to do next.

My questions are as follows:

1) Is it likely to be the security or old BT software causing the problem?

2) If it is, is there a way of disabling it all without removing the software. If not should I just go ahead and remove it all? (I'm sure the new hub comes with its own security).

3)If my guess is wrong what else could it be? Its supposed to be simple to set up so I think something must be wrong somewhere rather than me being daft (although I haven't ruled that out just yet!!! ).

If it was my own PC I'd just blunder around trying things until I got it working. Its not though, so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

I'd really appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks in advance

I'm somewhat confused. How exactly are you going to use those DOS programs on the XP machine?

A detailed tutorial will be difficult, since MS-DOS networking requires manual configuration, and it will depend on the specific NIC you have, and the drivers in question.

Tnx in advance.cheers

A:Connecting home theatre to pc

Hi goga. Hard to tell from your picture but I think you may only be able to connect 2 channel stereo to the Texoni . A Google search does not provide much info on this home theater unit. The Digital Coax Out on the Texoni is to output a digital signal to another compatible unit. It cannot be used as a input so you are out of luck here

Your Creative SB0220 is an older PCI connection which your motherboard does not support. So even if you could find Win 7 drivers this would not work. Besides, it would not offer surround sound if used with your Texoni.

I?m sure you don?t want to hear this but to get Surround Sound from your PC to your stereo you will need to purchase a Home Theater Receiver that offers 5.1 input connections.

Hi.

So basically, I'm having issues connecting two computers. One has XP Home Edition, and the other has XP Professional. Both connect to the internet just fine, but are unable to connect to each other.

I've tried just about everything, on every support website, and paying Microsoft for help is beyond insane. I'm basically at the point that I'm glad I shave my head, or I'd be pulling my hair out.

When I view the workgroup computers on the XP Pro machine, I can see both computers. I can access every file on the XP Pro machine, from the XP Pro machine, but unable to access the XP Home machine, despite being able to see it in the list.

When I try to access the XP Home machine, I get the infamous 'Access denied due to permissions' message. I've checked permissions, and both machines are set to Full Control. Both machines require no password to login to. Both are on a non-wireless router, and the router has no firewall settings from what I could see.

XP Home machine, can't even access the workgroup, yet the XP Pro machine can. XP Home gets an error stating the workgroup isn't accessable, then says "Network Path not found". How can that be, if I can see the machine on the XP Pro machine?

I just want to transfer files between my machines, and I'm fairly sure I have everything set up correctly, but apparently I don't have permission (from myself? ) to access my own computer across a network.

so, I cant get it to recognize the CD rom, and I therefore can't load windows or any programs.

I have looked at it, and the HD was easy enough to remove, but how do I connect it ? my home PC has an extra 4-wire plug, which looks like it would be for a second HD, but this laptop they has some plug that ive never seen before

After reading much about the values of having a window boot cd such as "Ultimate Boot cd for Windows ver 2.5" I finally created the boot cd based on Bart's PE. I thought that if anything ever went wrong with one of the two home XP SP2 machines I could use the boot cd to transfer important files via the home network by accessing the "Network Configurator" to easily transfer the files.

Well the boot cd works perfectly, but after many hours of trying I just can't access the local network. Inside the configurator under Map Network Drive there are boxes such as:
Network Path:
User Name:
Password:

I have tried many combinations relative to the HOME network accounts but have failed in connecting to the network.

The HOME system connects via a D-Link cable router DI-704P

I would be very pleased if some has been successful in connecting their home network in the way I have described.

Hi and welcome

I suspect your problem has to do with homegroup. when you set up networking in the windows install you chose a "home network" makes sense. Homenetwork however assumes all computers will be win 7.

To resolve the problem go to network and shaing where you set up networking in the first place and choose a work network instead. You can also turn off IPv6 as it is only needed in homegroup

In workgroup xp sees win 7, and win 7 sees XP

Let us know if this doesnt work

Here is the situation: I am living at an apartment complex that uses a single connection for the same building (at least). This connection is hooked into a router that reassigns IP addresses for that building. For instance: IP addresses in this building will be something like 172.16.X.X. Everyone has the same external IP address past the router-assigned IP address.

Since I do not have access to the devices, I am unsure how to connect to a home server outside (or for that matter, inside) the network. I have successfully implemented a TeamSpeak server in which both someone inside and outside the network were able to connect, but this does nothing to help me in the current situation.

I would also like to mention that I am hooked up to a home router, which assigns the IP addresses 10.0.0.X.

Remote access software like pcAnywhere let you take over a computer that is on your network. What you see on the screen is what would be seen on the remote computer. If that is good enough then programs like pcAnywhere, RADMIN, NetOP or VNC would work fine. Be aware there a differences in performance, stability and features between them.

If you want to access your home network as if it was a LAN, you would need VPN for that. You would see the remote VPN server as another mapped drive like on a regular network. XP Pro has VPN server built in but only allows one connection at a time.

Hi,

I've been trying to connect to a users home drive on a Win2000 server, from a W98 machine without much luck.
The command I use is "net use H: \home" but this only connects me to the USERS shared directory on the server. The user has to physically select their home folder from Explorer. The mapped drive is listed as "Users on Server" instead of "%username% on H:"

Thanks
 

A:connecting to user home folder

You should use User Manager to configure it:

1. Click the Profile button. The User Profile dialogue box appears.
In the Local Path text box, type the following exactly as shown:

c:\users\%username%

where c:\ is the partition where your Windows NT workstation is installed.

Note: If the directory c:\users does not exist, you must create it. You can create a directory from the Windows NT Explorer.

2. Click Ok to accept and close the dialogue box.
3. Click Ok to close the New User dialogue box.

A directory is created under c:\users that contains the same name as the user's login account.

I have a small network set up at home, and thought it was set up as secure (more on that soon). My PC is in a basement room, and out of range, so I have run a CAT6 cable up to my router on the 2nd floor, and have a steady connection. My daughter on the other hand, has a netgear wg111 adapter. The router is also a netgear router (wgt624). She is 2 rooms away from the router, yet cannot connect. When searching for wireless networks in range through XP, my network sometimes shows up as secure, other times as not secure... More often than not, her result of trying to connect is "limited or no connectivity". This is frustrating as all hell.. Can anyone offer a solution aside from wiring her connection? BTW, I have cable service coming in, and the modem is a motorola (not sure of the exact model #). Further, there are apparently other networks near my home that I am picking up, and XP likes to default to one inparticular, even though I have deleted it from the list, and made my network the preferred network... Harumph!!!

Thanks in advance for any help and advice.

I have two computers in the house i live in, one running xp sp2, and the other running vista ultimate edition 64 bit.

I have just installed a BT Home hub in the house, and the computer running xp connects to it fine, with no problems. But when I try to connect the other one, it comes up limited or no connectivity, and so does the xp computer(which was connected fine up until that point).

I have no network knowledge whatsoever, and I don't know where to start.

Can anyone help?

I've got a linksys wifi router and I can connect to it with my Vista machine only when I'm broadcasting. But when I turn off broadcasting and go in a setup the connection manually it will not connect.

What's a little weird is that when the broadcasting is turned off I can connect fine to it with my Apple Ipone. But my laptop just won't connect.

So right now I have broadcasting turned on so I can see the router.

Any ideas?

I have 5 computers (2 windows, 1 mac laptop, 1ipad, 1 kindle fire) connected to belkin wifi router / MOdel: F5D8235-4, V3 in basement where modem is in my office; with a belkin range extender upstairs in living room to send signal to kitchen.

Everything was working fine till 2 days ago, when the mac laptop started having problems with timing out when going for email and web. Only the mac laptop his having problems, and only at home network both upstairs, and also when placed immediately adjacent router i basement; works fine (went to apple store to check airport card, and settings; works fine there) everywhere but on home network.

Spent time with Belkin, router seems fine, as all other devices work fine on wireless network both upstairs and downstairs.

Appreciate any suggestions how to check/delete/reinstall mac laptop on home network; as I figure the problem is with mac laptop's connection to router - so am wondering how to delete/reinstall mac laptop via router's control panel

Tx for any tips

I use my laptop in my job to connect in my company LAN which means i log in into a domain ex "HAFA". But i want in my home to connect my laptop with a cross cable with my Home Desktop Computer which belongs to a workgroup ex "MSHOME". How i can make my laptop either to use the workgroup in my Home and either to join the company Domain in my work. Both computer uses Windows XP pro. Any help??
 

A:Connecting my laptop with my Home Desktop ??

First, whatever you try - DON'T CHANGE THE DOMAIN INFORMATION ON YOUR LAPTOP SYSTEM! If you do, there is a good chance that you won't be able to log onto your laptop with your work ID. Your company would then have to reset your ID and password (unless you had an alternate admin id.)

One thing you might try is to make the Workgroup name on your desktop computer the same name as the domain name on your laptop. (This may or may not work.)

If that doesn't work, then you can still share resources by specifying IP addresses for file and print sharing - or by editing the Hosts file on each system and specifying host names. Let me know if you need help with this.

Peer-to-peer browsing will likely not work unless the Workgroup trick is successful.

Good luck and let us know how this works out!

Hello again, well, I'm keeping the laptop for a few afterall and I want/need to tie the two of them together somehow.
I need to rescue the information from the laptop and save it to my PC in case it crashes during surgury.
SO, without taking out harddrives, (Not compatible.. One's a LAPTOP) lol
I don't care about the web, but I have dial up and modems. (I also have LAN modems,cables,and routers but no DSL service) Do I connect all that somehow and run a service in either my XP system, (the laptop), or do something through the PC, (Win 2000) It seems like I've tried every combination.
System info on em probably won't help as all my builds are always Frankenstiens, but they can both handle it.
A schematic of the network would really help, as well as real laymans instructions as I just haven't even been able to grasp the basics.
Thank you. I'll be out here for a while tonight, I'll keep checking back.
Sincerely,
policetac

Hi Shifty,

Just to clarify, are you sure you mean play the Philips system sound through the PC (e.g. play records/CDs out of PC speakers/phones)? Or do you mean play PC sound through the Philips system (e.g. play MP3s out of Home Theater Speakers)?

Also, it would help if you could fill out your System Specs, please!

Cheers,
