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 recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Alright, so I bought this laptop of someone knowing the audio was not working. I'm  trying to fix the audio  but nothing is working. I've been searching online to find the issue for weeks but still have not been able to resolve the issue, so this is my last resort if theres no one who can fix this issue ill stop trying to find answers to fix the **bleep** audio. I have tried to uninstalll the High Definition Audio Device from device manager and restart my laptop but that doesnt work.  I have also tried many other things even the guides which are on this website.  The original owner of this laptop has told me after he has updated the windows from 8 to 10 the audio stopped working. I think there is an SRS Premium Sound card installed into the laptop, not really sure. CAN I GET SOME HELP ASAP PLEASE.

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

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,

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!

I'm currently troubleshooting an HP DV6409WM for no internet connectivity. About a week ago the physical slider for the wireless networking card started only displaying the amber light. Usually, when enabled a blue light will appear and when disabled an amber. When I looked in the device manager there is only one networking device listed, NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller (This is for the ethernet port). In a similar computer (dv6607nr) it lists two one being a Broadcom Wireless Adapter and the Nvidia. I concluded we're missing the drivers to run the wireless card, (I downloaded the drivers from HP and installed them without success)I connected the computer to the cable modem, it immediately updated and the drivers worked and everything was good for 24 hours. The next day she came back. This time neither the Broadcom or the nvidia worked. Unable to connect via either port. We connected via teather connection using an HTC Hero, it worked to connect to the internet. Still the regular use ports would not work. The next time we tried to use the cell phone for internet it would not work. I tried an Alltel broadband adapter. Also tried to use a bluetooth adapter to connect via another phone. I have bought two different external network adapters (Belkin and a netgear) neither of which would install. I have reformatted the computer using an HP Vista factory disk. Problem still persists.

Hello everyone!
I have a dell inspiron 4600 desktop. I moved and had my internet service provider come to activate my connection, only to find out my computer is unable to connect to the internet. We checked the connections and everything is fine. I called Dell but because my computer is out of warranty they were "unable" to help me.

Any suggestions on how I could possibly solve this problem would be much appreciated.

Hi, I am a computer tech. but I am stumped by this one. I recognise the scam involved, it is very common here in South Africa but this one doesn't quite fit the usual pattern. Normally they call you, take your money and leave you alone, or if you don't pay they lock you out of your pc. I've never known them to take your money and wait 4 months to lock you out.
My customer was contacted by a firm in March 2014 claiming to be called Global IT acting on behalf of Microsoft and that his copy of Windows was illegal. His copy of Windows 8 was, to the best of my knowledge, a legal, activated copy of Windows 8 which came pre-installed on the notebook. He allowed this person remote access to his notebook and was shown log files of all the errors. For a fee this person would fix all the errors and issue a new product key which would make Windows 8 legal. Payment was duely made (I really don't believe people still fall for this) and the notebook was "fixed". Until yesterday everything ran smoothly.
 
Yesterday he was unable to connect to any wireless network. Plugging in a cable did not resolve the issue. The router was tested and found to be working just fine and other computers can connect to the internet through it. So the problem is on the notebook. I was called this morning after two other technicians had failed to resolve the issue over a period of 6 or 7 hours.

Hello,

This will enable the super user account. Hopefully this will let you access the GlobalIT folder and see what it is doing.
 
I would also download and run Autoruns in the administrator account and look for any suspicious startup programs.  Good Luck

I think that my PC has been infected as 2 days ago both IE7 and Google Chrome stpped connecting to the internet apart from when I go to the site fastmail.fm.
Luckily I also had firefox installed and am able to use this now but even though I removed and reintalled IE7 and tried IE8 it still will not connect to the internet. I have also noticed that itunes will also no longer connect.
Just before I lost connection a new site popped up inviting me to buy a safe web surfing tool so I shut everything down and restarted and that is when the problems started.

I have run Stpzilla and have Avast installed but neither has shown any problems so I am thinking of using ComboFix, is this a good idea?

I have several computers online with both ethernet and wireless adapters. My main computer can't connect to the Internet today. I had it hooked via a cable to the router, took that off and hooked up the wireless USB adapter and still no luck. The Netgear info says it is hooked up and there is a signal, but I can't get email or anything in my browser.

I have rebooted several times. This happens whether or not I have it hooked via the Ethernet cable or wireless. My other computers (I have both Ethernet and wireless) are able to connect and I can view pages in my browser.

Any ideas where to start? What a way to start off a Monday.

HiI have an old eMachines laptop that I received with a faulty power button, I fixed the problem and did a clean windows install on it, installed every single driver on it and it works splendidly but when I try to connect to my wireless network it gives the following error "Windows was unable to connect to ...", I tried connecting it with a cable to the router and it works, and made a hotspot with my phone and connected it that way and the same no problems except when I try with the wireless on the router. Other devices connected to it work perfectly.
Any idea what the problem might be ?
Thank you

A:Unable to connect to the internet

Welcome,
Do you have a username and password set for your router? When you go into the control panel and try to establish a wireless connection can you see the router?
Keep us posted

I recently had to wipe my hard drive and reinstall windows 7 on my computer. Idk the specs on it but it's a home build computer.

When I first reinstalled the windows 7 it worked fine and I was connected to the Internet using my belkin USB adapter. But after moving my computer to a new room the Internet connection stopped working. Ive ran trouble shooters over and over and it says its a router or adapter issue, but all the other computers in the house are connected to the Internet just fine.
I've reconfigured everything, restored and nothing seems to be helping this adapter to work!

Please help and if you need any more info please just reply and ask!

Thank you!

Edit, sorry if posted in wrong section, I was told to post here!

I also want to add that it connects to the Internet but after about a minute it gets the triangle with the ! And acts connected but I cannot open any web pages or open any online games.

When I trouble shoot it still tells me that Its in the adapter, router, modem, gateway or related issue.
I believe it has to do with either my ip address or the belkin UBS adapter.

As I said, it worked before I viewed it to another room. ):

If your walls in that room has metal rods / pipes, then wireless would be hampered.

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.

That error you get is from NewDotNet Domains = spyware. It hijacks your winsock. If you remove it with something like Ad-aware or other spyware removal tool, it will screw your winsock up = no internet. Go to http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html and try that.

I use Firefox and am having the same problem as both evergreen and rewired.. when trying to install Starcraft 2. I use Firefox mainly. 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.

copied that from evergreen.. haha. dvk01... i would appreciate your help greatly! i have already downloaded both ComboFix and HiJack This but have not run them. which should I use and can you help me get this fixed. Thanks in advance! I am on Vista... unfortunately

Currently traveling and have an ethernet broadband connection (which works great on another computer). (I am sending this message using dial-up, however).

The computer will not interface to the Internet, though the icon on the task bar indicates that it is connected when the cable is plugged in.

At my office, it works fine with our internal wireless network.

Hello,

I'm having problems connecting to the internet at home... All my connections are fine and my modem is working (other computers connected to the hub are having no trouble) but all my internet software (IE, Outlook, etc) are unable to connect. We tested the cables and they are carrying the signal just fine. We've also uninstalled and reinstalled the ethernet driver but nothing seems to work.

My roommate (who does tech support & installation of broadband networks for a living) is thinking this is a software problem.

I'm on a Gateway PC running Win98.

Any ideas? Help is much appreciated.

-Gabe
 

A:Unable to connect to the internet

Does your ISP allow you to connect to multiple computers via a hub without paying for add'l ip addresses ??

Have you done any other testing such as:

are you pulling up a valid IP address from the modem?
can you get to any sites by their IP address?
Can you ping to a website such as google.com by its URL ( dns name ) or its IP address and what results do you get ??

Running XP Home SP3 on my Dell Dimension 3000. It was working fine until a while ago I restarted it, and then it decided not to connect to the internet. It says the LAN is connected, but nothing at all will connect to the internet. Occasionally, after various disable/enables, repairs, resetting router, etc., it will show 'Limited or no connectivity'. Usually, it will also get stuck in 'Acquiring IP Address'. I know it's not the router, as other computers are hooked up to it wirelessly, and my 360's hard wired to it.

I've restarted the computer again many times, attempted to use System Restore (Which doesn't work anyway, so, that didn't help at all), restarted the router, the modem, the modem and the router (every combination of restarting those and hooking them up, and waiting 30 seconds etc.), tried using different ethernet cables, everything that I could think of, but to no avail.

Everything I've found on the internet on this problem seems to be for the SP2 bug, but I'm running SP3, not 2, so I'm lost.

The only other thing I can think of doing is the Symantec restore, but I'd rather only explore that as a final option, as backing everything up and reinstalling drivers etc. isn't a whole lot of fun.

Also, I just noticed this one, it won't connect to routerlogin.net, despite supposedly being connected to the network. Don't know if that's relevant...

Here's my setup; I'm running my PC to a router, that has a Charter cable internet modem connected to it. Another PC connected to this router is able to access the internet.
I believe the router and cables are in working order, as I have tested them and tried changing my cables with the other PC's.

I am shown as connected to the router (LinkSys), but can't access the internet, or ping any sites. I have no firewall turned on when attempting this.
I have tried Winsock and updating my network drivers to no success. I do believe my PC is the problem though, as everything had been working properly for several weeks before.

Any advice or software/drivers to look for is greatly appreciated.

Hope someone can help. A friend of mine has a laptop & a desktop computer. Both OS XP, and both conneted to same router & surge protecter. The reason why I'm explaining this is because they were both on when we had a dreadful storm. Now the desktop works fine & is able to connect to the internet no problem. As for the laptop, all things appear to be working without any problems, except the ability to connect to the internet. We have contacted the isp, they came out and said it had nothing to do with anything at their end (we already had figured that one out because of the desktop). During his check though he tried to run the msconfig to see what programs were running and he couldn't get it to open. I've disconnected it from the router, and connected it direct, but no go with the internet. Any suggestions on what the problem could be? As I say, all programs, in every sence of the word the laptop appears to be working just fine. Problem stands, it will not connect to the internet.

Please help? With thanks,

Greetings, Just did a system recovery on my wife's laptop. Internet was working before. Now I cannot connect to the internet. I can connect to my wireless network, which it shows as connected, but in the network sharing page it does not show as connected. No Internet connection using my browser or email program. Shows as a "unidentified network". I had my computer tech look at it at his shop. He was able to connect to his network. Brought it home, connected to my wireless network and it shows as no connection. Did the "ipconfig release" and ipconfig renew". Nothing worked. I cannot see my other computers on the network, which is strange. Network Discovery is turned on. I also just tried plugging in a cable from the router to the computer. Still no Internet connection. Using a Lynksys EA6400 router. This is very puzzling. Something that should just be a plug and play. Any help would be greatly appreciated before all my hair comes out. Thanks. Ted

A:Unable to connect to Internet

Great for you to ask. I meant to post it. Actually, the link is on this site. Wish I had seen it several days ago. Could have saved me probably 10+ hours of searching for the answer. Actually it was Linksys in the second chat session that told me what the resolve was. They wanted to change the security on the router to a lesser degree. But then it would have led to some connectivity issues with my other wireless devices. Some valuable information. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Wireless-and-Networking/Atheros-WLAN-Driver-Fixes-Connection-Issues-With-Many-New/td-p/701407 Glad to have this problem behind me.Hope someone with the same issue finds this helpful. Ted
