Preferred Solution: windows 7 error 561 wifi working fine with other devices con

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.)

Two days ago, somehow Windows lost the ability to contact any DNS server in the middle of my browsing for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and indeed a small browser called Midori. Strangely, Steam still had the ability to connect and browse, but after I rebooted in an attempt to fix the problem, steam could no longer connect.


IE Error: This page cannot be displayed.

Firefox Error: Firefox cannot find this page.

No other device in my house has this problem. All other computers can connect just fine.

Things I have tried

Cycling the power on the modem/router.
Using a direct ethernet cable rather than the laptop's antenna.
manually assigning a DNS server with control panel.
Reinstalling the network driver
flushing the DNS cache
Using system restore to go back DAYS before this problem ever emerged.

All yielded no change. I would really, really rather not have to reinstall windows 8 and lose all my information. I don't have the resources currently to back everything up.

So this has been going on for a few months. I have an HP DV6-7029wm laptop that will only get around 3.3Mbps over wifi. I have Uverse with the 20Mbps plan. Now here is what I have tried and nothing has fixed it.

Had Win 8.1 - Did fresh install to Win 7
Have tried 3 different versions of the Atheros 9485 Chipset Driver
Have swapped wifi adapters from daughters laptop
Disabled wifi security
Turned off Windows Firewall
AT&T swapped out my old gateway for the newest one they have

Now thinking it might be issues between my laptop and uverse gateway, I setup a Hotspot on my Galaxy S5 and used my phones LTE connection and was still only getting around 3.3Mbps. Now my phone will pull upwards of 25Mbps on LTE and the full 20 on my UVerse wifi.

Now the one that confuses me is I have a Cisco USB wifi adapter that I tried. And even with the USB adapter Im still only getting 3.3Mbps.

Any Ideas?

We have a TP-LINK router and adapter. We have a PC connected via cable to the net, which has the router connect to it. We can connect get fine speed by all laptops, mobiles. We have this other pc in the room next to the routers room.
The signal is very weak, 1-2 levels, but the pc adapter can be 7-8meters max from the router.
Also the speed, while other pcs get 25mbs, this one 3-6. Three days ago it had 25mbs, cuz we changed channel and its the same now. Weird...

Can something be interrupting the signal or what can be the problem? Im really out of ideas, i will be really thankful for all who can help.

Any other info you need?
The internet is from UPC 50mbs.

So I am attempting to connect to the wifi network at my girlfriends place, which I have done fine previously, but my laptop cant find it at all. I have tried restrarting my laptop, installing new drivers for the atheros wireless adaptor, resetting the router, but it still wont show up. It connects fine to other (older and newer) devices, and works fine when connected via ethernet cable, but it is hardly practical to sit on top of the router all day.

My laptop detects other networks fine, such as those of the neighbors and connects to my own home network fine. I have also tried deleting the saved network and manually connecting to the network while also checking the box about connecting even if the network is not broadcasting its SSID. Still nothing. I also checked power management settings and made sure it the network adaptor was using max performance power settings.

Previously when I set up their router, it was broadcasting on a single channel between 1 and 11, cant remember exactly which, and I have no reason to believe they have changed it.

A:Cant find specific Wifi Network but works fine with other devices.

connect by ethernet and have a look at the name and channel- it could be using channel 12 or 13 which is allowed outside the US but your PC is using channels 1-11 if US based setting

look at the SSID name and if indeed set to broadcast

I have seen that issue a few times - although xirrus usually shows the channel

all those signals are very low

whats the name of the wireless signal at your girlfriends
and where is that xirrus screen shot from - your girlfriends ?

SOLUTION: In typical techie fashion as soon as i ask for help I solve the problem. I did crtl + r -> ncpa.cpl -> properties -> configure -> advanced -> network access -> Type in the unique address seen for the network adapter when ipconfig is run, type it without dashes. This worked immediately.

My PC is Windows 8.1 and it hasn't had internet issues before. Last night it stopped connecting to the internet. This morning is has been the same. Wireless connections are working fine but my desktop doesn't have a wireless card so i need to fix the wired issue with it.

I've tried the ethernet cable on other devices and they work, so i think it must be PC settings. I PC restored to last night 7pm and it didn't fix it. I've tried ipconfig /release and /renew and it didn't work. I've tried uninstalling AVG and turning off firewalls. I still am getting the yellow triangle with "no internet access"

IPv4 Address

Default Gateway

I've tried updating network card drivers and disabling and re-enabling it. Anyone able to help please?

Hey guys,  I bought this Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14 about a month ago, and have had no problems with it until about 3 days ago when the wifi internet got really slow and would cut out with in a minute or two of working. During this time, any time I open the notebook and connect to wifi all other devices in the house won't get internet. I've tried browsing through this forum, but the solutions that seemed to work for others have not worked for me. If anyone has experienced this or knows of a solution please let me know. Thank you!

ASUS Notebook G60Vx Series

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
A few days ago my internet suddenly stopped working. I plugged in the ethernet cord and everything worked fine. Checking the properties in the device manager showed the device was working properly, I also tried resetting it to make sure it was enabled but it did not work.

Upon troubleshooting, the "Windows Network Diagnostic" said the problems was that the Wireless adapter was not turned on. Using the switch on the front of the laptop as well as the function keys does nothing. Usually a graphic pops up showing if the WiFi is on or off, changinging transparent to show the WiFi is disabled. Now when I turn the switch on it always appears transparent, effectively going from off to off

So I know the computer reads both the function keys and the switch on the front but both methods never actually turns the adapter on. I just finished a system restore and nothing has changed

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

A:Wifi not working on ASUS laptop, LAN working fine

Maybe the switch or adapter is defective. Some other ideas ...

Do you have an ASUS utility to also turn the wireless on/off? (I have an HP utility on one of my laptops that will individually control the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if the physical switch is on.)

In Device Manager right click on the adapter - Properties - Advanced tab. Sometimes there is a Property in there that allows turning the adapter on/off.

If the card is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace the card several times to fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems.

Hi all, first post here, I am simply stumped.

This issue is on my girlfriend's desktop PC. She's running XP, but I'm not sure which version.

- It connects to the Internet via EVDO Aircard. That connection is fine, rock solid (actually much better than my laptop with the same model aircard!)

- We have the Nintendo USB WiFi adaptor connected to another USB port, to share the established Internet connection with our Wii.

The problem is this:
The USB WiFi adaptor is stuck in Acquiring Network Address mode, after running just fine for a couple months!
- I have tried ipconfig/release and renew, I have tried going into the device manager and uninstalling/reinstalling that one thing.
- when I run ipconfig alone, the internet connection comes up with a normal result, but "Local Area Connection 4" (now 5 after the reinstall) comes up with all zeroes.
- when I try to "repair" the connection it gives me an error, I believe it says it cannot get an IP address. But I'm not looking for it to get an IP address - the Wii has a MAC address, and I would think the Nintendo servers would have given it an IP if it needed one, no?

I'm not a power user here, and all the solutions I've found in my search so far, I've either already tried or are over my head.

Anyone out there?

Hi, i will attempt to supply any info that is requested. This is my problem: My internet (wifi) was working fine, now it doesn't. I recently started having issues but when my landlord restarted the router it was fixed. The issue continued to happen and he replaced the router but the problem still persists. The internet works for my roommate and my landlord. The reason I am not giving computer specs is because the internet doesn't work on my iPod either. Basically the internet works for everyone in my house and on my iPhone, but it doesn't not work for my laptop or my iPod or when my friends come over with there computers. It says I am connected but I have the little yellow triangle. It says ipv4 no internet access and ipv6 no network access. I tried all sorts of fixes but since it does not work on my iPod or my friends' laptop, the issue is bigger than my laptop. Why would if only work on some devices? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you. I really need internet access on my laptop for school!!!

I recently bought a new cisco e2000 router and had no problem connecting to it on all the devices in the house (about 10 of them)

Just now, all the devices in my room (ipod, netbook, phone, and laptop) lost a connection to the router and no matter where I am in the house none of these 4 devices can get a connection. I can see other networks, just not mine. They all worked perfectly fine before, and out of nowhere they stopped working. Other devices that were not in my room at the time of this 'wifi surge' still have a connection to the router.
The wired connection works and that's how I'm typing this right now...

Any suggestions?


A:Wifi on all the devices in one room only randomly stopped working

Hello laxman7,

I would start off with a Power Cycle. See if it helps, if not please move on to the next tasks.

You may visit Linsys site and see if there's a most recent update for you router even though your router is brand new.

Install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector from one of your wireless computers.
Double click the Xirrus Icon on your Desktop, Tap the Printscreen key on your keyboard, open up Paint then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then SAVE it. Upload and attached the file here.

Please post an update.

My friend is staying with us and brought along her Dell laptop. She has a D-link Air Plus wireless card.

In an attempt to use her computer in our apt, she's set it up and tried to boot. Problem is, the computer is going to an error page whenever she boots with the card in place. The specific message is that file ar5200.sys is trying to write to a read-only memory. We then have to shut the system down cold as ctr-alt-del isn't working. So, it's locking up pretty well.

With the card not in place, XP is booting fine. We are getting an error code as well, but the computer boots and is working (although running slightly slower). It says system is recovering from a serious error. The error report shows the problem is files in the temp folder?

Searching for the specific sys (ar5200.sys) file hasn't given us any help. I just can't seem to find that darn file that's causing the trouble!

We first thought it might have been a problem related to blue tooth. My husband's mac has that running and she did have blue tooth software installed. We've done an uninstall and the blue tooth stuff has been wiped.

Since she cannot access the internet, we cannot download any programs to help us (or you) figure out what is wrong.

Sorry if this is too vague or confusing. I'm not used to wireless or XP!

Hey there,

Have been having this problem for a while. I'll try to make a long story short. I'm on a personal build computer running x58 chipset. Originally installed Windows 7. Have upgraded to 8, 8.1, 10, and then 10 anniversary addition.

The problems started once I upgraded to Windows 10.

When the computer goes idle for the day (leave for work, come home later in the day) the desktop, which is connected via ethernet, has lost it's connection and will only come back after a reboot. Troubleshooting doesn't work, and trying to disable and re-enable the NIC card doesn't work.

Once the desktop loses its connection, every device that is connected via wifi will show that it is connected, but will not load anything. As soon as I reboot the desktop, everything works fine. I DO NOT need to reboot the modem or router.

I have searched over and over and over, and have determined it is not a modem problem(comcast eMTA, in bridge mode), or a router problem (Asus RT-AC68P) so it must be a driver problem for my NIC card. I cannot for the life of me find a Marvell Yukon 88E8056 windows 10 supported driver to see if that is the issue. Maybe there are settings in the NIC card properties I need to change?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, i currently have a dualboot running between windows 7 x64 and ubuntu 13.04 x64.
Lately ive noticed that my internet is extremely slow when using windows 7, however if i boot into ubuntu its fine.
Ive tried running speed tests as well. Windows is sometimes having trouble getting even 1mbps! meanwhile ubuntu can easily get around 30mbps (what my internet should be). In windows it will also sometimes completely disconnect from my network, and then reconnect.

Its getting really frustrating, especially since i need to use windows as my primary os. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Very slow wifi on windows 7, but fine on ubuntu ?!


Your router has a wireless mode setting that you may fiddle. The wireless mode is defaulted to a mixed mode and you may change this to N (if your router supports this mode), G/N, B/G. Same as you Wi-Fi adapter, you fiddle on the setting if it's available. Make sure to run Speedtest when you change the mode until you are satisfied.

For disconnection issue, you might want to check for any interference, install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector Tool from CNET.

Have you also updated the Windows 7 driver to the latest?

Hi, Since a couple of months I have had an issue with my pavilion laptop. When I start the laptop I get once in a while an Internal Error 601 which states I have to replace my battery. When windows has started, windows shows an issue with   the accu and shows error messages like : ''Plugged in, not charging'' and a batterypercentage of 0%. Actually I can work with the laptop for hours, the only problem is when my laptop shuts down because Windows thinks the battery is empty. When I plug in the adapter, reboot the system and unplug the adapter the battery continues to work (but still shows the errors).Sometimes I don't get the internal error at all and windows shows perfectly the remaining power left within the battery, but when connecting the adapter or when the accu is fully charged, the computer shuts down and when rebooting the internal error comes again.  I did run the HP System Diagnostics Battery Test twice (once while showing the internal error and once while everything works fine), the first time it shows I have to replace the battery, the second time it states: ''The battery is working fine'' and shows a capacity of 80%.  I really don't know how to fix this issue, replacing the battery is quite expensive and I don't know if the battery is really damaged. It just charges and delivers power to my computer and except for the shutdowns and errors it seems to work perfectly. Are there any solutions to this, or is replacing the battery th... Read more

Uhg. So hello folks. So I was using my laptop this morning and ran into an issue - it bluescreen'd and immediatly shut down. Trying to boot it up yeilded what I came to know as one of the most annoying errors I have experianced in my entire life - error 2100, proclaiming that there is a read error in my drive.  Now, this is something I have been working on trying to fix for the last 4 hours or so with little success. Unlike other posters, I have mounted the same drive on another PC and the files were all there and it mounted without a hitch. Now, I have yet to attempt to boot from it, but at least I know the drive is not the problem. So I have cleaned the contacts, checked the connection from the controller to the mother board, and nothing seems to work. The only solution that I have yet to try is to update the firmware, but there is a very obvious problem with that - the only non-onboard way to do that is by disc - which sucks, because the Thinkpad Yoga 12 does not have a disc drive. I really do need this laptop to work as soon as possible, and it is upsetting to me that a laptop that is only around a year old is already starting to fail.  If anyone has any insight to offer, I would be most grateful.

I've got a Dell laptop here that isn't functioning properly. I can't get this to work for the life of me! I am currently using this laptop with a different hard drive, it's the install on the SSD that doesn't work. I know that the quick fix would be to simply reload windows, but I don't want the quick fix.

Basically, laptop works with Windows 7 install on a hard drive, no issues. On the SSD, where the ONLY applications loaded are Office 2013 and Firefox (and all the latest updates), the internet does not work (I can ping yahoo.com and get a response, so DNS is fine). The problem persists on IE and Firefox. I have no AV software other than MSE, and the problem persists in Safe Mode w/ networking. The hosts file is clean. The internet worked on the computer just fine when I loaded it, I hadn't used the SSD in a while and when I popped it in, the internet wasn't working. I believe something is getting in the way of port 80, but I can't figure out what. I have disabled all startup applications and all nonwindows services. The computer does not have bonjour. I have cleared history/cookies to no avail. I can't find anything suspicious in the running processes. I can't seem to turn off the windows antimalware process to test that, though.

Any ideas?

I have a Win 7 system. Everything was working, until a few days ago, and then the Ethernet connection stopped. The activity LEDs work, but the Ethernet will not connect. The Wifi works fine through the same router as the Ethernet is plugged into.

Here is what I did so far.Rebooted PC (full power cycle)
Rebooted router
MSCONFIG to disable all unknown services and apps
Replaced Ethernet cable
Tried a different port
Confirmed Ethernet driver is latest version
Deleted Ethernet driver anyway and reinstalled
Reset IP Stack
Set TCP/IPv4 to static IP and defined the DNS server
Confirmed the adapter's advanced settings were correct
Connected to a USB Ethernet adapter that I know works (and has worked before on this PC)

Nothing I did in the above list worked - Ethernet does not connect. The activity LEDs are working. The Network Connections shows a plugged-in Ethernet as an Unidentified Network.

I am running Windows 8.1 on an HP Envy Laptop. I have a wireless HP 6500A Plus printer. I have been using this setup successfully for a couple of years.

The last 4 or 5 times I have printed (over the last 2 or 3 weeks), I have gotten an on-screen "printer offline" popup, but the printer begins printing almost simultaneously. The popup goes away, and when the print job is finished, I get another popup which tells me there was a printer error and the document was not able to print. But it did print! This happens no matter how long the printer and laptop have been turned on.

This occurs every time, but it never occurred at all before 2 or 3 weeks ago, and I can't think of a thing I have changed. Since the popups go away and the printer prints, I guess this is more of an annoyance than a real problem, but something ain't right.

I have not contacted HP because past experience with them seems to always result in a communication problem, and it takes being referred to 2 or 3 people to ever reach a solution. I thought I would try this forum first. Any suggestions?

The laptop is only 2 weeks old, purchased with Windows 8.1 and upgraded to Windows 10.  Wifi was working perfectly until 24 hours ago when it kept losing connection and went from 0 to 1 bar.  Other wifi devices had normal signal strength.  I tried again today, even comparing with a near identical laptop which is on a fresh install of Windows 10 and could show more wifi services than my own one with both placed side by side within a few metres of the router. I googled around and tried setting the power plan setting to max performance on battery.  It made no difference.  There was no difference on battery power or plugged in.  I tried HP Support Assistance to restore the driver which was V17 before and still V17 after.   I then tried HP Support Assistant and Windows Update to find any updates.  There were none.  I then came to the support pages for the device and saw updates dated 4th October 2015.  Puzzled why HP Support Assistant hadn't found them, I used the hp support pages to check for updates.  This downloaded a new version of HP Support Assistant and this successfully downloaded a number of updates, include Wireless driver updates (v18).   I still only have 1 bar most of the time though it goes up and down a lot, peaking at 3 on battery power.  I have reset the power plan settings to default and there is no difference.  Still other devices around me have more signal strength than this.&n...

I am experiencing a problem with my Windows 8.1 Laptop connecting to the local network through wireless. Here is what I have tested/know:

When I use the W8.1 laptop and try to connect via WiFi to my home router I can either never connect (90% of the time) or the connection is very slow and drops after a short time (10% of the time).Problem has been apparent for a month or so but seems to be getting worse.If I set up my 4G phone as a WiFi Access Point I can connect to internet via W8.1 Laptop without problem.If I connect the laptop via a cable to my home router there is also no problem.The problem seems worse when I am on battery power but also exists when plugged in (but I cannot confirm this, just something I have noticed).

There is an Android phone, iPhone, Nexus, Kindle and a Windows 7 laptop (on it now) in the house all able to connect fine via WiFi to my home router.The problem exists even if I disable all above devices (I can check my router and see no devices are connected via wireless).I have used a WiFi Scanner to confirm there is no other network using the same channel.On the W8.1 Laptop I have tried to forget the network and reAdd it. I have also run ipconfig /renew but nothing is able to get me back.I noticed that in available Network connections when I reboot the Laptop I sometimes see (listed along with my Wifi) a connection called 'Hidden Network' but I don't know what that is.The W8.1 laptop is an Acer Aspire V7 (64bit)The router is a Sky Hub

Not sure if what I am trying to do is possible.

If I have two Windows 10 tablets and want to mirror the screens, do they need to both be on the same WiFi network or can this somehow be done directly between the devices?

I have head about something called WiDi and Miracast but not sure how to best use these.

If I were to take the two tablets I have out and about and wanted them to show the same screen wirelessly somehow is this possible? If not, could a cable be used - if so would this be HDMI? Ideally I would like a wireless solution if this exists.

I've heard the new build of Windows 10 might have improved screen sharing possibilities.

Is what I am wanting to do possible at all.

Any help or guidance would be great.

Thanks in advance.

A:Is it possible to mirror Windows 10 devices without a WiFi network?

Hello nswmuk, and welcome to Ten Forums.

If the wireless display (ex: TV) supports Miracast and is turned on for the device, then you'll be able to directly connect to the wireless display from your tablet if your tablet also supports Miracast.

Connect to Wireless Display with Miracast in Windows 10

If they don't, then yes you will still be able to connect the display to the tablet via HDMI cable to project (Win+P) the tablet's screen to the other display.

I've been doing some online gaming (world of warcraft), and I kept getting these Error#131 issues. This would cause the game files to become corrupted and then I would have to repair, or reinstall. The WoW tech site says that chronic error #131 messages are either a Hard drive, Ram, or Motherboard issue.

Running the Windows Vista memory diagnostic tool has turned up some odd results, the initial test with a 1gb stick in slot #1 and a 1gb stick in slot #2 came back with errors. I then removed the ram from slot 2 and ran the test on slot 1 with 1 stick of ram.... no errors. I did the same with the other stick in slot 1.....no errors. this lead me to believe that it was slot#2 giving me the issue so I moved the ram from slot 2 to slot 3, thus having 1gb of ram in slot 1 and 1gb of ram in slot 3. After a little while......error#131 appeared.

So I then tested both sticks in slots 1 and 3 together and came back with ram errors, I then tested both sticks in slot #1, and then again in slot #2 and both tests came back fine. Any ideas on what this issue could be? I know both sticks are the same brand, speed, totally identical.

I have been unable to connect to anything on my wired network, for about the last week. I don't remember making any changes however, I just became unable to connect.

I having done a little troubleshooting.

1. I can connect to the shares of my Windows Home Server if I use the IP address. The name does not resolve.

2. Flushed DNS and restarting DNS server. Flushing DNS works on one client, to allow browsing by the name & restarting DNS works on the other. However neither works after a restart.

3. Only my Wifi clients are experiencing this issue. My wired clients, desktops, PS3, Xbox 360, and Boxee can connect perfectly.

This issue is not limited to my server. I can't connect to shares on my desktop, nor print to my wired printer.

Some network background:

I have DSL through CenturyLink and have a Linksys E2000 router.

Sent a test page from one laptop to the printer at 6:36pm, it finally printed at 6:48pm....

My wifi signal is fine, but I've been getting a yellow ( "!" ) error msg over the wifi icon and losing connection every 5 minutes or so. Some quick background....... (Recently upgraded my dsl speed from ISP provider. Same modem and wifi router, but I did reset them a couple of weeks ago, but the wifi disconnecting just recently started.)

Anyway, just did a diagnosis, and it mentioned "DNS error".

The only thing I can figure is that I had at one point a couple weeks ago connected my ethernet cable to the laptop when having issues with resetting the modem. So under Control panel-network connections-change adapter settings, I disabled "local area connection" and the "wireless network connections 2 and 3" (whatever those are?).

Oddly, for the last 30 minutes hasn't been cutting out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Johnny6,

Welcome to Seven forums.

Please let us know if there are other wireless devices on the same network and do they work correctly or not.

Also, have you tried updating the wireless drivers for your system or not. Kindly update your system specs here by following this.

Check the system under safe mode with networking and let us know:

Hello all, perhaps someone can help me with this extremely annoying and seemingly complex problem I seem to have randomly run into.

First off:
-WinXP Pro 32 Bit
-Gateway Laptop

So I start up my computer and receive this error at the Log In screen:

I figure "Aw great another startup problem" After just having fixed one on a different computer, but then much to my dismay I discover that NONE of my USB devices are working, and when I opened device manage to check, it gave me the same error again when I clicked on a USB device .

This is what it looks like ( without the error again ).

SO does anyone have any ideas or has seen this error before, because when I searched online for a similar case I couldn't find anything. I know its probably best to try and reinstall the drivers since it says they are missing, but I want to make sure.

Also, I ran Malwarebytes Anti Malware and AVG ( Both updated ) and neither found anything.

I am experiencing some performance issues on my PC. First of all, here are the specs:
1. Operating system - Windows 7 Ultimate x64 bit.
2. RAM - 6.00 GB (2.00 + 4.00).
3. Graphics card - AMD ATI Radeon HD 5450.
4. Processor - Intel Dual Core (3.00 GHz).

So here's the problem:
Last week I installed the new 4.00 GB RAM to my PC to make it 6.00 GB. The computer was working fine and everything was all right. Yesterday however, I turned my PC on and inserted my pen drive and transferred a .midi file which I played on my Yamaha PSR-S910 to the computer. When I was doing this I noticed that my PC was usually slow.

Next I quickly scanned my computer with the antivirus (I have Trend Micro Titanium) and I downloaded IOBIT advanced system care and did a full fix.

Now, the computer is a very little bit faster but it gives a lot of problems. Please tell me how I can get my old PC speed back...

IOBIT Smart RAM says the CPU usage is 100%! This is very bad (I think).

Hello to everybody,
I am trying to post a help request here since is much time i try to solve this problem without success.
What brought me to post the help request is the new fact that i get the same error after ported my
system in a Virtual Machine.

I explain better.
Several years ago I purchased an HP Desktop P6228it equipped with Q8300 CPU and 6Gbytes of RAM.
It came with Windows 7 (don't remember if Pro or Home) and I updated it with W7 Ultimate.
It worked fine for long time when suddenly the DVD stopped to work.
I supposed to be an hardware failure so i didn't cared to much, it was not essential for me.
Then also the audio stopped to work. It was neither essential too, so i didn't cared.
Then I realized that some other "exclamation points" was showed in the Device Manager.
I have at moment a "code 3" for the following devices:
Audio, Intel ICH10LPC, Intel QuadCPU, Display, CD-ROM.
I tried to install a PicoScope device and also it have now a "code 3" error in the device driver.

Recently i virtualized all my systems as sort of backup procedure.
Also this PC has been virtualized and tested.
During the test of the virtualization on a completely different computer i surprisingly noticed that
also on the virtual machine the same errors was listed.
So i realized the computer has not hardware problems but completely software problems.
I would really appreciate an help about this "code 3" error.

I finally managed to solve it!
I have finally found this link:

The instructions are related to Win7 32 bit.
I exported a REG file of a Win7 64 bit machine I also have.
I imported in the defective o.s. and IT WORKED!

It has to do with a wrong setting of the file: wdf01000.sys
My registry was rather different than a working one.
It should look as:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00




I hope this info will help others!

Hi guys

I have had the same internet for several years now, and it has always been working fine on both my windows 7 PC and vista laptop. However, I now have a problem connecting on Windows 7, sometimes it says the pass phrase is incorrect (even though its not) and other times it just says there was a problem connecting to the internet.

The only way I am able to connect to my windows 7 PC is if i change my router security to OPEN or WEP. It is currently on WPA2-PSK.

I have done a DNS Flush and took a screen of ipconfig /all.

Any ideas what can be causing this issue?

A:Cannot connect on Windows 7, Vista working fine

There is no wireless NIC showing up at all in the ipconfig, I see a bunch of extra tunnel adaptors and an Ethernet connection which isn't plugged in.

You should check the Device Manager under Network Adaptors and see if the wireless NIC shows up there or not.

I have a HP Pavillion a1640n with Windows 7 Home 32 bit edition installed. I went to use it and it was on, and it had installed updates (even when I specified for it not to, as I had a bad experience before). And it restarted. When it restarted it then was in a Start up recovery loop. When I tried the recovery, it couldn't find anything wrong. I did some research and tried fixing the master boot record which had no effect. I tried the fix for the infinite restarting loop. No effect. I can get to the command prompt when the start up repair fails. I've tried disabling the auto restart after failure and I get the blue screen of death, and it will not start. I can not get it in safe mode either.

So I thought I'll re-install windows. Can't do that because now when I put anything in my CD/DVD drive it restarts the computer over and over and doesn't load anything! I tried getting into command prompt and trying to run it from there, nope it restarts the machine. I am lucky that I can get the cd out of there, and then it starts in the start up repair loop.

Is there a fix for this or is this computer just toast? is there a way in command prompt to disable the CD/DVD drive in case windows updated the driver and it's not compatible?

I've tried a restore point, for it to tell me that there are none and I have not disabled restore points at all in my computer.

I am trying a chkdsk and it's stuck on 19 percent complete so far.

This will allow you to start the computer with the Winodws Cd/DVD. Thus allowing you to run a reapair or completly re-install your Windows OS. Should you want to try to save any information on your Hard Drive. Then attempt to run repair from the windows disk. If not then just Re-install Windows. Please See the following instructins.

Change the boot order in the BIOSTurn off the computer: If the computer works, click Start , click Turn Off Computer , and then click Turn Off .
If the computer is not in Windows, press and hold the power button approximately five seconds until the computer turns off.
Disconnect devices that are connected to USB, Firewire, parallel and serial ports, except the keyboard, and the mouse.

I have an older desktop, Pavilion 410y.  Upgraded to Windows 10 about 6 or so months ago, and it has been running fine ever since. Last week I re-booted, and it came up in auto repair mode, then locked up on a screen that says to select keyboard layout.  USB keyboard and mouse will not respond.  This seems to have been a very common problem when people first downloaded Windows 10, but I've not seen anyone post about it happening after months of successful use. Tried all the fixes on the interwebs. . . Then called Microsoft.  They say that the Pavilion 410y is no longer compatible with Windows 10.  It was when 10 was released, but with the two automatic updates since, it is no longer.   Microsoft claims I can contact HP and find out what hardware is now incompatible to update it.  I can't find out how to get to that point. . .  At this point, I'm willing to do some low cost hardware fixes just to get me back up and running so I can verify and copy all my stuff, then get another computer soon.  Anyone have any solutions/suggestions/magic? Thanks

Windows 7 64-bit
Canon MP610 USB printer
Test Page works fine for the Canon Printer; it takes a long time but Test Page also works for Acrobat; works quickly for XPS Document Writer.

I honestly don?t know where to go next. I think the problem is in how Windows communicates the print instructions from applications to the print devices. But I don?t know how to go there. Hoping for help here and much appreciated.

No hardware changes; I had installed two software apps so I?ve uninstalled them with Revo so I don?t think there?s a software issue. Nothing else has changed since I could print merrily along.

My problem seemed to start in Acrobat 8 (Pro) and only intermittantly but it is now system-wide and inevitable. When I try to print to anywhere, I either get a "printer not responding" message or a stall requiring a task manager "task end". I've had failures with screen prints, MS Word, Acrobat (either in the browser or stand-alone). On the stalls, I get to preparing for background print and there it sits. That seems to be true for both the Canon and Acrobat.

I've checked everything I can think of printer-wise. I've always had the Adobe as default but I switched it to the Canon. No change so I switched it back.

I've run the oh so (not) helpful Windows 7 printer trouble shooter. Nothing found there except I had unchecked the share box as I tried to solve the problem. The troubleshooter suggested I turn it back on so I did. Still no change.

So as of last night, my laptop has been having connection issues using the same wi-fi that I've been using for months.
My internet is part of my rent with the building I live in, but have never had an issue before this.

Most* websites will load instantly, or within a second, unless there are images or videos on the page.
However, all videos, images, and online games are nearly unresponsive. Videos on youtube immediately drop to the lowest quality, and will take a very long time to load fully (up to 30 minutes for a 5 minute video). Images also load incredibly slowly.
I've tried to do a speed test, but the test fails after the ping check due to lack of a connection.

All my other devices are perfectly fine, including phone, tablet, multiple gaming systems. Netflix on my PS3 also has absolutely no issues loading quickly with high quality. My friend's laptop, when using the same connection, seems to have full and proper speeds.

I've looked around on this forum at similar posts, and have already re-installed my wireless drivers. The problem persists.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
