Q: Unable to connect hp ProBook 4440s with the internet at all

Help I am unable to connect my grandmothers computer with the internet at all. Under bad advise she has wiped and reinstalled windows 7 onto her HP ProBook 4440s laptop model number 4440S-LAP and now it is unable to find wifi in the house while other devices in the house are able to connect to the wifi without problems. Upon further inspection of the laptop I found that even when connecting to the LAN it is still unable to connect to the internet and I have come to the belief that it might be the driver. If anyone could help of clarify what the problem may be I would highly appreciate the help

I have an HP Probook 4440s that is having some issues.  Here are the issues which I think are related: 1.  Computer cannot go to sleep2.  Cannot connect it to an external monitor3.  Cannot run any programs (i.e. Steam) that require a graphis card4.  On Device Manager, I am showing an Intel graphics card, but it has the little triangle thing that says there is something wrong with it. Here is what I have tried: 1.  Uninstalling the gaphics driver and reinstalling it2.  Installing Intel tool to review all drivers on the machine3.  Pulling my hair out. Any help would be appreciated!

I have a HP ProBook 4440S notebook.  I also have two monitors - an HP1740 and an HP LA2405.  I'd like to set up dual monitors using the notebook.  Can the graphics card drive both monitors?  If so, I would have to use an HDMI cable with a male DVI-D connector to plug into the LA2405.  I would use the standard D-15 cable to connect the 1740.  If this works, would I be able to stretch the desktop to the 1740, or would they have to be split as two separate screens? Thanks

A:Dual Monitor Support for ProBook 4440S

The ProBook 4440s (Technical Quickspecs at http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/14306_na/14306_na.pdf) can support 2 video outs, either 2 external (hdmi and vga) or the lcd panel and 1 external. Although HP does not support hdmi to dvi adapters, they are available and seem somewhat inexpensive so can be purchased for testing. Both hdmi and vga ports are usable

Just got off the phone with Verizon. They had me push the reset button and I was able to connect to the internet again. I mentioned how slow it takes for pages to load. She said if I have two firewalls running that can happen, then eventually it blocks your internet connection. I have the free Avira and am only using the Windows Firewall. She said the Verizon router has a firewall but it's a low security. So I went on the internet was able to get on some sites, but then others wouldn't connect again, said there is no internet connection. All the lights on the router are on. So far it's still working, but this is what happened before when I lost my connection completely.

I have Windows XP, tried it both on IE 8 and Firefox. The router is an Actiontec MI42WR. The problem was with both my desktop and laptop wired connections.

Hello guys,

I have just finished my very first computer build and am rather happy with most things.

Unfortunately I am having problems connecting to the internet.

I have a temporary dongle in place and because it's my only option for about a month I kinda need it to work.

When I first connected it I found my connection and I successfully connected, I downloaded Google Chrome and Steam, then unfortunately it randomly stopped working.

Where the strength bar should of been, there was a large red cross, when I found my connection it read "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network." I Googled this and people said delete your connection and reconnect, that didn't work, so then I tried to set my security type to something different or off as recommended in a solved post, the problem persisted.

Now after restarting my computer several times it sometimes rejects my password, or comes up with the "the settings for the network..." and on rare occasions it connects then 5 minutes later comes up wit my original problem.

I have tried resetting my connection details as what is saved on my laptop and mac and they don't work either.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Regards, Lee.

Hi there, I'm having a bit of an issue with one of my computers. It's fairly new, running on Windows Vista.

I am able to connect to a wireless router (Belkin), but I am not able to connect to the internet on this one particular computer. Another desktop computer on the network is able to access the internet. I just get the error "Internet Explorer cannot display the page" on the laptop whenever I attempt to open IE.

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help. We recently installed a new wireless router, and all the other computers in our house can access the internet. But for some reason I can only connect to the network, even though it says there's full connectivity.

I called the customer careline for our internet providers, and they said it was a problem with my computer settings, rather than the router. But they said they couldn't advise me any further unless I paid for it, hence my need to look for advice elsewhere....

Thanks!

Hi,

I am writing from my computer regarding my daughter's computer. Her computer abruptly was unable to access the internet. I have checked to ensure there is no proxy server. I have got Malwarebytes Anti-Malware onto the computer and run that without avail (found nothing). I have been told to check my hosts file for 127.0.0.1. I did that and found that number within but it was not associated with a website that I could tell. I have run something called combofix and have a log for that if desired to view. I have also run dds and have attached that log as requested. I did not run the other diagnostic as this is a 64 BOS. At the time of infection, the computer had McAfee on it. Since this happened, it has expired.

Any help you can give would be most appreciated.

i was connected to a hotel network which functioned perfectly well until yesterday afternoon. I could only get "local only" access using both the ethernet connection and the wireless connection and the network was unidentified.
after much googling, i tried reseting the tcp/ip, flushdns, reset winsock, removed all saved networks and wireless networks.
using the ethernet cable, i am unable to connect to the router at all, getting the 169.x.x.x ip. i tested the connection using a live linux cd and the connection was stuck at "obtaining ip address". when i try to ping the router i get the message "ping transmit failed, error code 1231"
using wireless lan, i managed to connect to the router but the connection is hgihly unstable, dropping back to "local access only" intermittently. when i ping the router, i get extremely high packet loss of upwards of 74%, with the message "destination host unreachable" most of the time.
i'm running windows vista home basic, and the linux system i tested with was backtrack 3.
is this a problem with the hotel's router or my computer's connectivity?
this problem is only present on my computer, which is a dell inspiron 1420. all other computers and even my cellphone can connect to the hotel's network without any problems.
 

A:Unable to connect to the internet

Even though this might not be of any help in solving the problem itself, but obviously there seems to be a problem with your computer, and not the hotel's network. If all the other computers and even your celluar phone could connect to the Internet, then the problem can be pretty much isolated to your computer alone.

The OS of my laptop is Windows Vista Business 32-bit. In my home I access internet through wireless Linksys Access Point. My laptop is configured under "Alternate Configuration" to connect to the AP through static IP address. Since the last few days the internet is not getting connected and I get the following message -
"The following policy might need to be adjusted to allow Windows to connect:
Policy Provider: Windows Firewall
Filter Name: Query User
If the policy provider is Windows Firewall, click for information about adjusting Windows Firewall settings. If a different policy provider has been identified, check the provider?s documentation on how to adjust the policy settings."
In addition to Windows Firewall there is Outpost Firewall also installed on my laptop. I have tried a lot to change the settings under LAN but without any success.
More interestingly, when the TCP/IP setting of the adaptor is set under "General" tab instead of "Alternate Configuration" the internet gets immediately connected to the laptop. As I also sometimes connect through wireless router for which it is required to set the TCP/IP of the laptop to "Obtain an IP address automatically" I need to set the access point throgh "Alternate Configuration" only.
Please help to resolve my crisis. Thanks.

I have a problem with my connection, In Windows 7/XP I have trouble connecting to the internet, but on my Linux Mint install, I have no issues whatsoever. All this seems to have started when I installed my old router as a switch, so I could run a music server. It seems that Windows thinks that this old router is the main connection point to the world, and of course cannot connect. I need to know where I can change the network settings to get windows to use the main router. My other problem is my laptop, which can connect to the main router fine by wireless, but cannot get further. I checked the route, and it seems to go from the main router to the switch, then stop. Any help on these issues would be appreciated, thanks.

A:Unable to connect to internet with Win 7/XP

Update: Solution was simple, the router/switch was conflicting with the main router and causing connection problems. So I took it off the network and moved the server downstairs, and connected it directly to the router. Why didn't I think of that two days ago? :P

Have you recently installed any new Windows Updates?
 
Do you have any anti-virus programs or firewalls on your computer?
 
Are you able to get online? I know you posted here, but perhaps it was from a different computer.
 
Do you see any error messages when you try to open any of those things?
 
Try Holding down you windows logo key on yor keyboard and then pressing the letter R - It will open a run box on your computer.
 
Type into the run box: APPWIZ.CPL
 
Click OK
 
This will open the add/remove programs window - if it doesnt, either your windows installation needs repair or something is blocking it
 
Please post the answers to the questions I asked and the result of the Step I want you to try.

I have a friend I am trying to help who can connect to the internet using firefox but not IE7. (she is on XP, Service Pack 2)

She is on a wireless connection.

She has to use IE7 for her business so it is a necessary for her to have it.

We have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and she still can't connect.

Anyone have an answer? Your help would be greatly appreciated!
 

A:Help! IE7 unable to connect to the Internet

Browsers just use an internet connection, they don't actually connect. My first guess on your friend's problem is a 3rd party firewall (internet security). Or, secondly, maybe she has a setting wrong in IE7 (such as incorrectly specifying a proxy server).

EDIT: Just curious, why does she have to use IE7 for business?

I cannot connect to the Internet.
I have installed a New Hard Drive into my Dell Inspiron 510m Laptop.
I have loaded all the Dell Reinstall discs - used device manager everything works except the BT broadband connection.
I have a BT Voyager 2091, Wireless router, this has given me a trouble free service for years, in fact my 2nd Dell Laptop using Vista works off the same router with no problems, hence I am sending this message.
I contacted BT via my land line and was told after their test the Voyager 2091 was working correctly, the problem was with my Dell Laptop as I was receiving an Error Message 'Problem NaN number..
I have used my Ethernet cable with no success.
The wireless signel reports 'Very Good'. - but no contact.
Can I solve this without going via Dell, or is it too complicated?

When installing Starcraft 2 it comes up with this message on the installer:

Unable To Connect
The Starcraft II installer requires an online connection in order to install, and cannot currently connect to the internet to authenticate. Please check your firewall settings and ensure that your computer is properly connected to the internet, then restart the installer.

I went to the support page and fixed some ports that it said to change, and did so. It comes up with the same message, and I am wondering if this has to do with the same thing that the other thing did. Because this usually never happened before I got that virus.

I use Firefox.

Im having trouble connecting to the internet on PC. When I try to start up Firefox (or any other internet accessing program on my computer) I get a message saying the server cannot be found, etc etc. I have tried restarting my computer, re-connecting the connection, repairing the connecting. All my firewalls are turned off, I even removed one of them. This has happened before but normally I can clean spyware off and it runs just fine. I've already run everything on my computer to clean of spyware, virus's, vundo, and a bunch of other things that I got from the security portion of this site. I've also checked back a few pages of posts and done searches, but it is to no avail.

If any one has any ideas as to what could be the problem, Im willing to try almost anything. oh, and im connecting to the internet from the same ethernet cord, from the same connection, but its on my mac. Which, imo, rules out the problem being something with either of those.
 

A:Unable to connect to internet

You said "Same ethernet cord, same connection". And what's on the other end of that ethernet cord? How do you connect to your ISP?


You connected directly from computer to (cable or dsl) modem? If you have a router or something in between remove it. And, btw, are you using a cable or dsl provider. Have you called them as well see if it's their problem?
Have you power cycled the modem?
Is the NIC on your mac configured to match the parameters required by your ISP? e.g. DHCP
Is an IP address getting assigned to the computer? or are there connection problems even before that step is completed?

What software were you uninstalling? It definitely sounds like you uninstalled an important application needed for Windows to run properly.

Have you tried a system restore?

Also, without knowing what software you uninstalled - it will be very hard for us to solve this problem.

I have an e-machines desk to pc that was working. I recently used a router but that quit working for some reason. I took it back and got a switch and had my internet provider add $5 to our monthly account. Now....I am using the switch for two computers. One works fine but the emachines will not go online. I get the standard explorer message "unable to connect to internet". I have been on the phone with my internet provider tech support, emachines tech (not really wanting to help) and two friends who are both computer savvy.

I have gone through several things that I found on the emachines tech support page after they passed me off. I have isp config’ed, pinged, etc. My provider said that my computer is receiving a signal and the best answer I got is that something in my computer is blocking me from the internet/email.

I need to update my web site ($$$) because I recently moved out of town and am loosing money and need the site back up. I tried to load it to my wife’s computer but it isn’t compatible with windows vista.

Can any one help me????

I've had a Vista PC for a while (since about 08), and the other day it stopped being able to connect to the internet. After checking the router settings, the router doesn't even acknowledge that the computer is connected to it, even though the ethernet cable is definitely working.

I suspect it's a problem with the computer's IP address. After opening command prompt and attempting to do the command ipconfig /renew, the only thing it does is give me a line that says "An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : The RPC server is unavailable".

Of course, it's simply a hunch that it's an IP problem, and if it is, I have no idea what could be causing it. My computer restarted on its own and displayed a message right before all this started, but I didn't get a chance to see what the message said. Other than that, I have no idea what's going on.

Since I occasionally get this message, I did what I always did and logged off (Dimension E520 XP Desktop, by the way), restarted modem, and that normally fixes the issue. When I started Firefox/World of Warcraft Launcher, I couldn't connect to either, although my connection strength was high, everything seemed to show up as working properly. Tried multiple sites figuring it was just an issue with MSN, but the screen remained white with the little white loading bar at the bottom of the screen saying something along the lines of "Waiting on X (Site)..." for over ten minutes, and still doesn't do anything.

Any ideas? I can be more specific if needed. It was working fine as of. last night

Unable to connect to the internet

I am using two computers in a network setup - one is Vista Home Premium operated and the other is XP professional.

Until three days ago I was able to connect to the Internet using a Router setup on the Vista machine and a wireless connection on the XP. Overnight something changed and when I started the Vista machine next day I received the message that no networks were available - the XP machine was also not receiving any signal. By unplugging the hard wire from the computer I was then able to receive a connection on the XP machine. After shutting down and disconnecting the Router I then attempted to run the WRT54G router setup wizard ver.8 - setup proceeded OK and the internet and LED lights were all lit - however at stage 8 after checking for computer settings I received the error message:

"unable to connect to the router - check that the router has been connected to the computer and that your ethernet adapter is working"

again by removing the hard wire connection I was able to receive a connection on the XP machine.

I have tried extensively to Google for a answer to the problem - which by the results seems to be quite an extensive problem to a lot of guys - but being a "Newbie" a lot of the answers may as well be in a foreign language!

I did try to install and use a wireless card on the Vista machine but this still resulted in no connection to the Internet.

A:unable to connect to the internet

What may be happening is that the network that each device is a member of is different. In the system properties I would guess one is workgroup and one is called linksys. When you connect them both they conflict. This is because one is wired and one wireless.

For sanity, check that neither has a static IP address. Also, check if things change with the windows firewall turned off on both in case they have both had a windows update.

Or, a weird problem I have seen is down to this: Which device was the Linksys setup software initially installed on? That is the one that needs to make any changes.

I can't think of anything else right now, but it would be worth cabling both devices into the router and seeing if that works. It would help to diagnose the problem if we knew if that works.

So, a long story short, my computer is unable to connect to my home internet. All other devices in my home can connect, and my computer can connect anywhere else...but for some reason my computer won't sync up with my home internet. I thought it was DNS lookup failure (it turned out not to be), then a friend said she had the same problem and it was her IP address. Come to find out, the other computer in my home has the same address as I do, but I'm not sure how to change my address to be different. (I tried calling my internet provider...no luck.) I have tried ipconfig /all and found my dhcp is disabled. (when I tried enabling it, it said it worked, but it didn't show up on my command prompt) I tried ipconfig /renew and it gave me an error message. (the same with ipconfig /release) I've tried manually changing my IP address settings, enabling more than one device on the network, etc. I've tweaked so much on this issue that I'm not even sure what I'm doing anymore. Help?
 

A:Unable to connect to internet...

You can power cycle your router to re-assign ip addresses. to do this turn the router off and unplug it from the power source.... Wait 10-30 seconds and plug the power back in... But if this doesn't work look up "setting a static internal ip" or reply on this post

hope this helps
