I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I recently bought my wife a new NC10 Notepad, but when connecting to the internet via wifi I get a 12007 message returned and am unable to make a successful connection to the internet.

I have searched all of the place on the web but have been unable to find an answer which solves this issue. I did find this old posting on this forum:

http://forums.techguy.org/networking/825924-solved-http-error-12007-a.html

I have tried what is suggested there but I still do not have an answer which resolves the issue.

To complicate matters this notepad does connect to two other wifi`s one at my office and one at a friends house. To further complicate, I have other laptops in my house which do connect to the wifi which the NC10 cannot connect to.

Can anyone advise please ?

Thanks in advance

Disable encryption and MAC Address filtering and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect. If unsuccessful please show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I have an older Gateway laptop that works perfectly fine but it will not connect to the internet.
 
I thought it might have been the wireless card going bad but even when I plug in directly to the modem it still wont work. 
 
The moden works fine as there are other computers in the house connecting off it with no problem. 
 
Weird thing about it is it acts as if it is working, when I click on the wireless indicator thing in the bottom right corner it says that it is connected, indicator never lights up though like it does on the computers in the house that are connected and working. 
 
I would have tried reinstalling windows but unfortunately I have lost my installation disc. 
 
Thanks much for any help.

Morning folks,
Laptop won't connect via wireless.
It will connect via ethernet.
I have run antivirus and malaware bytes
I have checked relevant drivers
This is a known software issue as it happened last month. I took it to my local PC guy and he fixed it but was very vague about what he did. "I ran a couple of scripts" was his answer
All other devices in the house are fine.
When the laptop crapped out last month, so did the desktop BUT desktop is ethernet only. The computer guy fixed this the same way.
 
I could go back to my guy, but if  it is recurring then I would like to know what is causing it.
 
I've tried different routers
 
I'm running Windows 10 
 
Thanks in advance,

I have a problem with my desktop computer which is causing me a lot of problems . Let me explain.
I have a Dell Dimension desk top using Windows XP . i have a Sky router which is hard wired to the desk top and connects by WiFi to my iPad. All was well until about 10days ago the Internet connection to the desk top stopped working properly. The reason was error 12007 . Since that time I have spent many many hours trying to solve the problem. By using the iPad I have been able get a huge amount of info from the net regarding this problem but to no effect. I then resorted to taking the computer to my local computer shop to get it repaired. This was duly done ,the guy said that he had cleared out some court registries ad lo and behold he showed me it working ,full access to my browser (Firefox) and all looked well. I then took it home fired it up and lo and behold error 12007 came up again. After several trips back and fore to the shop the problem is still there.
It is a strange situation. I can open Firefox and get the front page (Google) and I can search and get hits for whatever I'm looking for BUT if I then try to open up the hits very often error 12007 emerges but sometimes I can one up the hit, For instance I can search for Hotmail, get hits but if I try to open up any of these hits i get error 12007. If I search for the AA route planner I can open up all the hits and use the planner. There seems no sense to it all. The worst feature is that I cannot access my mails.

I have a Dell Optiplex GX260. It had Win2000 Pro, I installed WinXP SP-3. The reason I did that is the inability to receive (send OK) packets. No Internet connection on a cable that connects OK on another machine. The NIC card is a Linksys LNE100TX v4.1. The Winsock diagnoses OK, I get the correct lights on the NIC card (the internal NIC doesn't appear to be working either, hence the LinkSys card install) and the icon says it is connected at 100 MBPS. There is no HTTP/HTTPS/FTP connection. I can't do a system restore since this is a new WinXP installation. In the Diagnose Connection there is a "semaphore timeout expired" message.

What is the best solution to this inability to connect to the Internet? On another note I cannot get a high screen resolution. That was possible in the Win2000 Pro.

I can take my cable and hook it to my old laptop (which I am using now) and it works just fine. The warning says that it can't find the dns server or my ip address.

Hi,

My desktop PC cannot connect to the Internet. I get Error Code 12007

The PC uses a Pentium 4 3 GHz processor running Windows XP Professional. I have verified that the Local Area Connection is working properly from the PC to the modem.

I have also used my laptop to connect (using the ethernet cable NOT wireless) to the Internet using the same DSL modem/router (Netgear DG834G v4). The laptop works without any problems.

Any suggestions?

A:Error Code 12007

HTTP Error 12007 means your PC is not able to resolve server address. In other words, it cannot convert string like address (e.g., www.yahoo.com) to numbers like 74.34.22.123. It may be a TCP/IP stack corruption problem. To correct this problem :1. Open Start Menu > Run, type cmd and press Enter2. In the command prompt window, type netsh int ip reset c:\reset.log and press Enter3. Restart your computerIt may be an incorrectly set DNS server problem. To resolve this issue:1. Right-click My Network Places on your desktop, select Properties. Right click on Local Area Connection and select Properties2. In the listbox, double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). You would see a TCP/IP Properties window as shown above.3. Select Obtain DNS server address automatically and save settings.If this does not work, you can set DNS servers manually to the ones your ISP supplied or something like OpenDNS servers (208.67.222.222) as shown in the picture. Tell us what happens.

-i open IE, no connection, nothing works its totally down and i have to run the fix programme that says my dns/ip is static when it should be aquiring dynamic. then it says i have a problem with my tcp stack. then it reboots, and within an hour its broken again. actualy within 2minutes of opening at times..

Hi renn_j,

There could be a number of reasons for the internet disconnection. 12007 means that IE cannot connect so it is trying at least.

If you aren't sure how to do any of the following then repost. I apologise if I have covered old ground from the previous forum too.

Did it suddenly stop working? Has it ever worked? Did this happen after problems with malware?

Do you have another browser installed? Often another one will connect with no problem

Is there a proxy set on Internet Explorer?

Have you checked the security level on your firewall?

Sometimes the add-ons on IE can cause problems so it might be an idea to switch them off and then if that works slowly add them on until the problem add-on is identified.

It is possible that malware is present. If nothing above works then perhaps it would be worth posting in our "Am I Infected" thread.

That's a lot to cover. Hope it's not too much...

12007 is not an http error except in the fevered brain of microsoft "make it act like a mac" department.

It is usually because you don't have a good dhcp address, the right dns server, or your firewall is doing what it thinks is best.... and you are using IE.

I downloaded (from another computer) RegCureSetup_RW.exe. Since I cannot access the Internet from my desktop, I was not able to get it to work properly. I now have doubts about RegCureSetup_RW.exe

2) If RegCureSetup_RW.exe is Malware, how do I remove it?

3) What safe, legitimate software can I use to correct the ERROR 12007

OR

4) What steps can I take to correct the ERROR 12007?

Hello I am not computer wiz but I know the basics.

I have been having this problem for over a week now and have searched everywhere for an answer but no help.

I am unable to post a status update, comment on or like anything on my Facebook. When I try these things I am confronted by an error message saying:-

"AN ERROR OCCURED. PLEASE TRY AGAIN IN A FEW MINUTES"

I have tried all the suggestions that I have read on forums, for example:

-cleared browser cache and cookies
-accepted all cookies
-tried different browsers (currently using Firefox)
-turned off Norton Firewall and web safe search
-restored my system back to an earlier date before the problem started

none of these have helped so I am now lost with how to fix this. I have logged a bug report 4 times on the Facebook support forum but I have had no response from them. I am wondering if a factory reset back to default will make a difference to the problem.

Sometimes when I turn my laptop on a message pops up in the bottom right hand corner of my desktop saying something along the lines of:-

"DNS ERROR 12007, UNABLE TO LOCATE SERVER FOR MAIL" something like that but it only appears very quickly and not all the time.

I dont know if this is related to my problem and I cant pin point if the problem is on my laptop or maybe a problem with Facebook website. However, I am able to use my account ok on my mobile phone so this makes me think something is causing the problem on my laptop.

On my laptop, an error showed up suddenly last morning. It said something along the lines of this "Your computer's Hard Drive is failing". In more details it was my Western Digital drive, labeled at C:/. I instantly shut it off. It is a NE model laptop. Any ideas why?

A:Computer HDD Error on Gateway Laptop.

That is probably a SMART notification which means there MAY be a problem. I would strongly urge you to create a backup image of the hard drive to an external hard drive and then keep it current. That way when (or if) the drive does die, you can install a new one, restore the image and you're ready to go.

A good, free program for this is Macrium Reflect Free.

I own a Gateway Laptop that when on for a few minutes will freeze up and display a white and blue/Yellow design all over the screen. I thought I may have picked up a virus, so I tried to anti virus and the system freezes with the strange design after a few minutes.
I then tried to recover the disc using the recovery disc supplied when I purchased the laptop. It ran for a few minutes than had to turn off manually due to freeze up with strange design.
Doe anyone have any idea why this would be happening? Could it be a graphic card?

Here are the specs

I own a Gateway NV53 laptop. Usually it has an error where it has a blank screen upon startup. About half the time, it works, and the other half, it doesn't run, only the wifi button and power light turns on. Yesterday, it stopped working whatsoever (yet the same lights were on), so I plugged it into my TV via HDMI, and got an error message on startup which included: Media checkup has failed, failure to load OS. I did drop it yesterday, but lightly. There was no cosmetic damage at all and it was a light fall, but I can't think of another reason for its sudden failure.

I've gathered that it could be a broken LED screen, a hard drive failure, or even a loose cable within the laptop due to dropping it. I can provide any other information necessary upon request, but I am at a loss here. Any information would be greatly appreciated...

hello, i'm very new to this site, but i have been working with computers for some time.
i recently started doing little jobs on the side, and well now i've run into something that is just mind boggling.

some guy gave me his gateway nv54 laptop with windows 7 home premium and he wanted to know if his smashed headphone jack could be repaired, and i decided to take a look. i have opened up many laptops before and have never had a problem. HOWEVER i saw that the jack was beyond anything i could repair, unless replace, which he did not want, so i put it back together. the guy turns his laptop on, and his left click on his touch pad wasn't working. immediately i assumed that maybe i had not lodged the ribbon in correctly, so i opened it back up and all seemed to be fine. still, it did not work. so i said, "hey, leave this with me over night, and i'll have it taken care of" so after much research and even re-installing windows 7, the touchpad does not work at all anymore, and now the battery won't charge and it's all just this horrible nightmare now! his laptop will work when plugged in and NO BATTERY. if the battery is in, then it's a no go. but with the battery out, it will turn on, but not load up windows, however it will stay running in the bios. WTF!? i'm really stressing out here, and the owner of the laptop is furious, someone please help me!

I know that you said you have worked with computers for a long time but I still have to ask if you took all the necessary electrostatic discharge precautions. Did you ground all your tools and wear an anti-static wrist band? if not, that could be the source of your problems, and if so, you're in big trouble.
