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.)

Hi could someone please help me my net was working fine last night in vista now all of a sudden it wont work. I though it was something wrong with my internet so i phoned my ISP and they couldn't figure out what was wrong and told me to change my Ethernet cables and said everything looked ok on there end so i changed cables and it still did not work so i just happened to get a free ubuntu CD in the mail the other day so i popped it in and tried out the live CD and my net works fine here. On vista i went to my services to check and see if all the services were running but i noticed alot that had to do with network wouldn't start such as DCHP client and they all gave me errors when i try to start them. Heres a little video i made showing the services and such:


If someone could help me i would be so grateful i miss my vista :(.

I have broadband i think so the net normally starts on its own i dont normally have to enter passwords or start up any connections.


A:My Internet wont work on vista all of a sudden but works in Ubuntu.

from what i can find it could well be a registry problem suggest you run recovery console sorry iam not that well up on this maybe one of the mods will be able to answer you better

The Bluetooth (BT) mouse of my laptop (with build-in BT module) seems to work just fine. However, I don't understand why the Bluetooth mouse works because in the Controlpanel\Network and Internet\Network Connections the Adapter [Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network) #2] is DISABLED.

On the other hand, in Device Manager->Bluetooth Radios, there are two entries:
1. Bluetooth Module
2. Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator (MBE)

If I disable only the MBE then the BT mouse stops working. If I disable the Bluetooth Module, then MBE disappears all together and the mouse stops working too.

So, it is the MBE that controls the mouse, but what is then the relationship between the MBE and the Bluetooth Adapter in Controlpanel\Network And Internet\Network Connections??

Are MBE and the Bluetooth Adapter (in Network Connections) two parallel Bluetooth structures/stacks alongside each other?

Or does the Bluetooth Adapter sits on a higher level and get access to the Bluetooth hardware module of the laptop through the two Bluetooth Radio entries (in Device Manager)?

I've been reading about the OSI model and trying to figure out what Bluetooth components in Windows 7 sit where exactly in the OSI model, but it remains fuzzy to me how Bluetooth Device Manager components relate to the Bluetooth Network Adapter.

Can anyone shed some more light on the relationship between the Bluetooth Device Manager components and the Bluetooth Adapter?

Any info about websites or docs w... Read more

A:Bluetooth mouse works, but .... why does it work?


I see you didnt get a reply.

As far as I remember The connection listed on the network connections page as Blue tooth Pan is a Network Connection allowing you to connect to the internet say via a smart fone or other bluetooth enabled device with an internet connection.

Blue devices such as a mouse or keyboard are listed on the devices page

Hope this helps

Ok, so I have a few mkv files that play fine with VLC but skip frames and have strange audio glitches in windows media center - on the PC and streamed to 360. Any ideas? Codec packs? Conflicting codecs? WMC doesn't support multiple audio streams in mkv? Is it possible to remove audio streams from an mkv file without going through a second conversion process?


A:MKV Problem: Sound works fine in VLC, glitches in Windows Media Center

Can you clarify what audio and video codecs are involved? *.mkv is a container format, not a codec. For example, i you are watching HD content with H.264 video codec, that may help explain the glitching.

I am not sure whether I should be posting this in the Windows forum or the PC Hardware because it involves both.

I have an external 320 GB Transcend Drive with a lot of important data.
Recently, I unplugged it from my PC and took to another to get some files.
One the other machine (Vista), it didn't show up as far as I can remember, thought that was strange so i brought it back to my Laptop (Win 7, Dual Boot with Ubuntu 10) and it only showed as Local Disk, I have tried to find useful information on the net but some is very vague and some is outright stupid and irrelevant.

The fact is that the HDD is not broken. When in Ubuntu I can view the contents fine and everything is there, no freeze ups or anything, but in windows the drive shows up as Local Disk, I don't think it is a drive letter conflict.

The Device shows up fine in the Device Manager.
I'm sure some of you have solved this problem as it seems many on the Internet have.
If so please tell me in a few steps how you resolved it.. I am not formatting as I do not deem this necessary since I can access my data fine in Ubuntu.

Kind Regards

A:External Hard Drive Works In Ubuntu / Shows as "Local Disk" in Win 7 and doesn't work

I bought a used Lenovo x230 and upgraded with a brand new Samsung EVO 840 SSD 250GB and Crucial 8GB of ram on August 1st of this year (2014). The machine ran perfectly without a hitch for about 20 days straight.

I was running Windows 8.1 64bit. About 5 days ago, I was watching Netflix when all my applications started to disappeared and brought me to the log-on screen with no apps visible, no start bar, nothing but a blank log-on Screen. When I try to log back in, I got he User Profile has failed the Logon error.

I Googled on how to fix that issue. After trying to replace the user profile with a working one from my other pc, after trying to repair it, after trying to delete it, nothing seemed to work. I ended up formatting the SSD completely and reinstalling Windows about 32 times (no kidding). Each time I re-install windows, I would be able to use the PC for about 10-30 minutes before it restarts itself and gives me the User Profile has failed the logon error again and again.

I reformatted using every available method each time a fresh copy of Win8 was installed. I use a bootable USB, went thru command prompt, clean, and created a new primary partition but to no avail, the issue contiinues.

I tried to install Windows 7 and the same issue persists. I installed Ubuntu to run ClanAV antivirus but it did not find anything. Back in Windows OS again, I went into an administrator profile and was able to run internet explorer and downloaded every single antivirus progr... Read more

A:Help Diagnose, Windows keeps deleting itself, Ubuntu works fine

Hello dc42nr86. Welcome to the forum!

Well, you win the prize for the most confusing problem of the week. You sound very technically capable and I think you have done everything I would have tried. Given the results you post I have to say I'm baffled.

Here are some things that pop into my head:
Boot Sector Virus: like Bigfoot, often mentioned - rarely seen outside a lab. But if any of the AV you have can do a boot level test then you can try that.
Faulty SATA Controller: but this would cause entire drives to disappear, not just partitions. But could a bad one corrupt data? Possibly. Does this happen if you use a different HDD? Is the SATA controller set to AHCI in UEFI/BIOS? Try another SATA port?
Partition exists but can't be seen in Windows. Download and burn a CD with Partition Wizard on it, and then boot into PW with the problem SSD attached (Windows missing) and see if PW can see the partition and what it's status is. Does it have a Drive Letter? Does it read healthy? Free download Magic Partition Manager Software, partition magic alternative, free partition magic, partition magic Windows 7 and server partition software - Partition Wizard Online
Let's start with that and see where it goes.

When using the installed windows 7 my laptop keeps crashing no matter what web browser I'm using, what antivirus I use etc. The 'not responding' thing always bugging me plus occasional BSoD and regular freezes. I tried clean installing using windows CD but that didn't solve my issue.

Posted this question on several forums already.. hoping someone could solve this.

A:Why my laptop works fine using ubuntu live cd but not with windows 7?

First Evenstevens, Ubuntu will run on a packing box with memory

I would not compare windows 7 with a bootable cdrom with Ubuntu.

What you need to do is to properly fill out your system specifications so that everyone here who helps will have some idea of what your configuration is. then running some diagnostics so that it can be determined what exactly is going wrong with your windows 7 installation.

Hey there, i just got my t470 today and i love it so far! But i have the following problem. I cannot install Windows 10.I created bootable flash drives multiple times and tried all bios settings (according to some posts both uefi and legacy in combination with secure boot turned off should be working) but after selecting the flash drive the screen turns dark for a couple of seconds and then brings me back to the bootmenu. I tried it in the diagnostics mode and got the following error message:"media test failure - check cable" I tried to boot from a ubuntu flash drive and it worked instantly!I even went as far to burn the newest bios update onto a flash drive and flash the update. Still not working though. Does anybody have any idea what i am doing wrong? I couldn't find any more posts about this issue. I tried all the solutions which worked for other people. A friend of mine got the exact same laptop from the same seller and used the same flash drive and it worked the first time for him.. is my laptop the problem? I mean i dont think its the bios, maybe a mainboard issue? I have no clue. Thanks for your help! Linus

To fix this problem I download drivers from IBM site and try one by one to install it.
Finally my internet start to work and I do not have any yellow question mark in Device Manger, but wireless internet and dvd writer do not work.
Network Adapter( in the Device Manader) and Network Connection display only cable internet device and do not have Wireless device type. Also, I have Wireless Link and Wireless Network icons on the Control panel.
Why wireless doesnt work? How can I fix it?
Is this possible that my laptop did not have wireless card before?

Hi. I have four HP Envy notebook computers that I use regularly at work. Suddenly, starting up one day, all four computers stopped connecting to our wireless network. I tried at a different wireless network and neither of the computers still cant connect. I even tried a third and still no result. All of my other computers that runs Windows 10 (2 Acer, 1 Asus, 8 iMac) are still able to connect to all of the wireless networks. I even run Windows 10 on all 8 iMacs and they can still connect to all of the networks. And there hasnt been any chances to the wireless network. Strange thing is when I bring the computers to my home they can find my wireless network at home, all four of them with no problem. Ive tried all Windows repair and HP assistant and none of it works. Ive updated to the latest drivers and all I can think of. What can have happened. Ive noticed it has been a Windows update, but if that update have affected the network drivers,  how can it the work at home. I can also add that all four laptops work if I use Ethernet. Hope someone can help out. //Richard

Yesterday i installed a PCI wifi card in my pc after which my sound completely stopped working, i have tried updating drivers, selecting the right speakers in the windows control panel and pretty much any other suggestion i found on other sites. My concern is that i might have damaged my motherboard while installing the PCI (I hit it with a screw driver when trying to remove my GPU to fit the PCI in), and that this is the cause of the problem. Do you have any other ideas on how i can fix my sound in windows or should i just assume i damaged the motherboard and buy a soundcard/ a new motherboard?

A:Solved: PC sound doesn´t work.

The test is to remove the wireless card, as of course beofre you installed this the sound worked
If it then still does not work and there are no warnings shown in device manager for the sound then I think you can presume that you have indeed damaged the motherboard.
That said, is the sound coming from the integrated sound chip or from the GPU

Exact same problem on Windows 10.
Tried all of six steps above, including buying three new cables in step 6 one of those was the specific cable recomended by HP support.
Make 9 calls to HP  and 4 calls to Microsoft. HP signed me up for their paid Freinds Support and I called them 5 times.
I tried the monitor on a surface Book, and Asus Desktop and a Dell Destop. Did not work on any of them. I have installed the latest drivers multiple times and update the firmware in my laptops, Surface Dock and Asus Desktop.
HP connected to my Surface Book several times and installed two different - third psrty partitioning programs. One didn't work the other did but it was a trial version and wanted more money than I felt it should cost.
I'm using it as a single monitor with no partitioning. It mostly works but has some strange events where the mouse clicks are off by several undred pixles. rebooting fixes that.
Now I have atiny little spider runing arround under the front glass. Very distracting. How did it even get in there? I would have thought the area between the glass and the disply would be sealed arround the edges.

Essentially, everything is wrong with my computer and I have no way to fix it. The first problem arose about a year ago. My laptop battery suddenly wouldn?t register any charge, and could only be used while plugged in. I thought that might be a battery issue, but, a few months later, I replaced the battery and still had the same issue. Next, I started getting the ?blue screen of doom,? the Kernel Data Inpage Error. My laptop began to consistantly stop working after a few hours of use: webpages would stop loading, files wouldn?t open after being clicked, and then the mouse and screen would become unresponsive. Most of the time, I turn the computer off, unplug it, and restart it to resume use. However, if I left the computer on, it would either give a black screen reading ?all boot options are tried,? or the blue Kernel Data Inpage Error screen (the Kernel Data Inpage Error is the rarer of the two). It would last longerer the less I used it and after repeated sessions of rebooting after freezing, it would only last a few minutes. It also took a while after startup before it could open programs or load websites, but besides this, it still functioned as a proper computer, so, while frustrated and constantly attempting to find a solution, I dealt with it. However, recently, it?s begun to have errors opening any program not factory installed with windows or Google Chrome (I have no idea why Chrome, other browsers won?t open).

Hello People so not to long ago i was having trouble with Windows 7 and had someone install a Ubuntu OS but it was not a legal copy I assume, but now the people who actually use the computer such as my family don't like it and want windows back so what I did was boot from disk with the Installation disk in the drive but i get to a point where I have to select Where to install windows it reads " Where do you want to install Windows" and under the options it gives me two options.
Name: Disk 0 Partition 1 Total Size: 329.5GB Free Space: 0.0MB Type: System
Name: Disk 0 Partition 2 Total Size: 5.9GB Free Space: 0.0 MB Type: Logical

and it does not let me continue past this point on the bottom there is a notification that says

"Windows cannot be installed to Disk 0 Partition 1 (Show Details)"

when I click on show details a message pops up that reads

"Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS.

Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition is of an unrecognized type."

This is the farthest I can get into the installation. Any help would be much appreciated, I tried to be as specific as possible while describing this but if anyone needs more info please let me know i will post it up

before I upgraded from Vista to 7 I was dual booting Ubuntu 9. something and when I installed 7 I thought it deleted it, but now that the boot screen comes up again it's still there and works. Not sure if this could cause problems.

When I was installing Ubuntu 10 a window kept popping up that said my mouse was trying to communicate with the PC and that I had to enter the PID or PIN or something, but the window wouldn't stay open long enough for me to do that.

I've tried updating the mouse drivers and reinstalling it, but it didn't work. It was working just fine before this.

Update: Afterwards I deleted the partition Ubuntu was on, reinstalled Ubuntu 10 since the boot screen wasn't coming up, and the mouse works fine in it, so it shouldn't be a physical problem with the bluetooth adapter or mouse. I also tried using system restore, but it still didn't work.

I can get the mouse to communicate with the PC and set up, but it never works and usually shows up as not being active after I install it. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't work nor does updating the drivers.

I'm using a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 and a Rocketfish Bluetooth Adapter.

Would I have to wipe my hard drive of both OS and reinstall Windows 7 with my back up image or is there ways to install the windows 7 image without affecting Ubuntu or both?

A:How does system image of Windows installed along ubuntu work?

Ubuntu has the buzz but from personal experience I'd recommend Madriva One 2011 esp. if you have broadband internet connected via a network card.


Easus image backup free:

Best free data backup software. Hard drive backup and recovery freeware. Hard Disk image freeware.

with this program and an external drive you can back up the entire HD or particular partitions.

What I would do:

Burn the Boot CD for Easus ToDo. Make sure your system will boot from it and you can see your HD and external drive before doing anything else. If the restore on the Boot CD can't see the drives try a different program. Another is Macrium Reflect Free:

In case of disaster you have to be able to restore the image using the Boot CD.
The image back up tool is only as good as the Boot CD with the restore. If you can't see it, you can't restore it.

Use the Back up entire disk option before you start altering partitions. Be able to get back to square one if anything happens.

Then once you have Windows and Linux peacefully coexisting and booting correctly, use the back up option to make an image of the individual partitions. If Linux breaks, just restore the Linux partition. If Windows, just the Windows etc..

Both Easus and Macrium are very easy to use. There are others also.

I'm trying to connect my Thinkpad P70 laptop via HDMI to two monitors, using the two USB-C / Thunderbolt ports on the back (I know I can do this thru the HDMI port and the mini-DP, but I'd ultimately like to be able to move connection between P70 and Macbook Pro--which has only TB ports. Ultimately using a dual HDMI adapter).  I'm trying this with two Belkin USB-C to HDMI adapters.  I'm dual booted, and it works fine for Windows.  But under Ubuntu 16.04, the left port causes freezing, black screens, etc.  The right port works okay, though with a bit of flashing before it settles down.  I've got discrete graphics set in the BIOS (version dated 2017-09-28), kernel version: 4.10.0-40-generic, machine type: 20ER, graphic card: Quadro M600M, kernel driver in use: nvidia and xhci_hcd (Intel/Lenovo Sunrise Point-H USB 3.0).  Anyone have any insight or suggestions?  Thanks very much.

because i need help so badly i'm going to give you a walk thought of exactly what i did:
ok first i rebooted the computer and booted from the ubuntu disk onto installation and when to the choose partition part. when i was there I noticed that all my free space was labelled unusable.

I then saw that at the top of the list there was a partition in my drive that was 1 mb big so i deleted it, when i deleted this partition all the free space that was unusable because usable and a created a partion from it that was a "ext4 journaling file system", 12 gb big and put the mount point as / solely because that what it said on the dual booting guide.

After that the installation went smoothly and ubuntu worked, however i rebooted the computer to find to my surprise 6 boot options these were :
- ubuntu, linux 2.6.31-14-generic
- ubuntu, linux 2.6.31-14-generic (recovery mode)
- Memory test (memtest86+)
- Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)
- Windows vista (loader) (on /dev/sda2)
- Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda3)

(This was surprising to me because windows vista has never been installed on this computer as I got it last christmas and came preinstalled with windows 7)

After seeing this i chose the windows 7 option because i wanted to check if it was ok and it came up with a message saying windows failed to start and gave me the option of either launching startup repair or trying to launch windows normally. This is when i knew something wasnt right so i clicked laun... Read more

I have recently noticed a few new glitches on my Gateway laptop, running on Windows Vista, the laptop is only two years old. I haven't installed anything new, and have been running a consistent anti-virus and spyware program for a while now, so I can't possibly think of an external cause for these glitches other than the laptop itself possibly just going haywire.


1) The laptop will function properly, but if it is idle long enough for the screen to turn off for power save mode, upon reusing the laptop everything will be frozen and none of the programs will work. Ctrl alt delete does not work in this instance. The only option is to hold down the power button and improperly turn off.
2) Occasionally, while simply browsing different sites on the web, the laptop again will freeze, and ctrl alt delete does not work. Will have to once again improperly turn off.

Other than those two 'freezing' instances, ctrl alt delete works. It simply stops working when the computer freezes which is usually after reusing it from when it has been idle, or randomly during normal computer use (less frequent.) The freezing is not total, the mouse still moves, but any clicking or keys are unresponsive.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

This is a post explaining my Bluetooth issues and how I resolved it.  It's a good thing.  I never found anywhere in my searches this answer but it does work.  Here's the story.
After upgrading to Windows 10 back when it first came out, I struggled with the Bluetooth reception and the ability to use Bluetooth devices (bose mini and Plantronics m55 headset).  Then in my efforts to resolve it and loading all the latest drivers, somehow I stumbled across the driver that works how it should.  This is what I mean.
When you originally connect the device, then turn it off, when you turn it back on it wouldn't reconnect AND play without removing the Bluetooth device and the re-pairing it.  Now, when I turn the device back on it automatically reconnects and works like it should.  It's a beautiful thing. 
Usually it wants to update the driver or install as original the Intel N6230 Bluetooth driver (it will say something like that in device manager, but with more words).  That is a troublesome driver.  Instead, you should use the "Intel Wireless Bluetooth Driver" - do a search, I downloaded the cab file from softpedia.  After downloading, you have to uninstall any driver currently being used through "programs and features" and/or "device manager".  Just the one that's the Bluetooth driver, not the enumerator or anything else.  After you uninstall it, in device ma...

Hi All
Windows8.1 do not recognize any bluetooth., But Windows 8 will be easily identified. Install bluetooth driver in Windows 8.1, but I do not know why I can not be activated.

Model: Asus k53sd

A:Bluetooth does not work in Windows 8.1

Not sure if this is your problem but it is what worked for me due Bluetooth Support Service not having the right permissions:

Unable to REMOVE Bluetooth mouse

Does Bluetooth Support Service show up as running in Task Manager/Services?
