MC7354 on T520 [Main Problem Solved, No LTE however]

Q: MC7354 on T520 [Main Problem Solved, No LTE however]

I cannot get the MC7354 on the Thinkpad T520 to work. It is constantly complaining that the Hardware switch is off when this laptop does not have a WWAN hardware switch. I also have a MC7700 that is doing the exact same thing. I can't get either of these cards to work simply cause I can't get them to actually turn on in windows.

Preferred Solution: MC7354 on T520 [Main Problem Solved, No LTE however]

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.)

Sorry if this gets long, I want to make sure I explain the problem sufficiently. I am trying to hook up my LG LCD HDTV to my husband's Toshiba Satellite via HDMI. I right-clicked on the desktop and went into "Graphics Propreties...". At first, I did a desktop clone, which worked out great, but I wasn't satisfied with the resolution. I figured it had something to do with the max resolution available on the notebook, since what displayed on the TV was just a clone of the notebook's display. I then switched to single display, with the HDTV as the display. That worked, andI was able to up the resolution past what was available before. Here is where the problem starts: I was switching back and forth with a few different resolutions, and happened to pick one that apparantly my HDTV does not like, as the screen went black and "Invalid Format" danced around the screen. As soon as I unplugged the TV from the notebook, it switched back to the notebook's display. Here is my question: I need to know how to either fix the resolution issue with the TV without it being plugged into the notebook, or I need to know how to reset the graphics settings so that it does not remember that I ever hooked it up to the TV in the first place, at which point I can start from scratch and not mess around with the resolution to begin with.

A:Solved: Problem with using HDTV as main display

Hi Skinygrl99, and welcome to TSG.

Found this in the PDF version of the A500 Series User Guide:
Directing the display output when you turn on the computer
Once you have connected an external display device, you can
choose to use the internal display only, the external device only, or
both simultaneously.
Some modes are only available with the appropriate device attached
and turned on.
The quickest way to change the display output settings is to use the
display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order:
❖ Built-in display only
❖ Built-in display and external monitor simultaneously
❖ External monitor only
❖ TV (or other external video device) only
❖ Built-in display and TV (or other external video device)
❖ Built-in display and external monitor (extended desktop)
❖ Built-in display and TV (extended desktop)
❖ Swap—Switch primary display between internal display
and external monitor when using extended desktop
Click to expand...

That should let you get back to using the control panel to select a suitable mode for the exteranl screen.

I have a T520 with Intel Centrino 6205 network card. I have ability to run Win 7 and Win 10. With Win 10, both 2.4 and 5Ghz SSIDs are available.With Win 7, I only see the 2.4 GHz SSID. I use Win 7 most of time, so would like to get this to work. The driver for the Centrino card appears to be dated 22July2014. When I try and update from the Device Manager, it goes into an endless on-line search. Looking at this site, three driver options come up, but the numbers don't look like the one that is installed. The Intel Proset software version is 17.12.0 dated 2Oct2014. Questions:Is there a way to switch on the 5Ghz band in settings somewhere?If it is a driver problem, how to I find the correct driver?

I am having an issue with my main pc, computer 1 in my signature, not turning on or shutting itself down. It all started last week, I left the pc on and went to work, then a couple days later went to get on the pc and it was off. I have to try several times at turning it on before I finally get a post beep, I have unplugged the dvd drive, took out the video card, (that was my problem last time) and I even took out the ram and reseated it but I still can't get it to post beep the way it should. When I finally do get it to turn on it loads everything just fine then shuts itself down unexpectedly. I have a new power supply bought earlier this year and I am also on my 3rd video card since building this system. I was thinking maybe that the stuff between the processor and cooler could be old and not working, there by forcing the shutdown, any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi all
So far I,ve enjoyed using W7 X-64 but there's one application that consistently (and randomly) fails for what I can see is no apparent reason.

The message IE8 has unexpectedly stopped working.
You then restart IE8 and it will sometimes but not always restore your last session.

I use almost NO plugins apart from the adobe flash - this installs on the 32 bit version of IE8 but not the 64 bit version.

(You can tell if flash is working / installed or not) by simply loading the BBC's home page (BBC - Homepage) and seeing if there is a little square analog clock application running at the right hand top of the screen - this won't appear if you start the 64 bit version of IE8).

I "tolerated" the occasional failure of the pre-RTM versions of W7 but I would have expected it to be fixed in the RTM.

Handling badly written / dubious code from zillions of websites can be tough on a browser but IMO the browser should be robust enough to just ignore or issue a message when it has problems accessing a particular site.

So W7 X-64 RTM in general very positive but not too happy with some aspects of IE8.

(Firefox hasn't yet crashed on my system - but for work compatability I'm often forced to use IE8 ----- so don't reply "why not use another browser please ).


A:IE8 - my main problem with W7 X-64 RTM

Here's something you can do:
1: Open Internet Options and go to and uncheck Enable Protected Mode.
2: Under Advanced tab, uncheck Enable 3rd party browser extension.

Clear all cookies and temp and then restart your pc.

my main board wont load when powered. when i apply power, the keyboard lights, and the CPU/sink fan starts, but the monitor does not reflect any activity. i pused the num lock key, to see if that would work, but it didn't respond.

the board is a "PC100 Systemboard, Slot 1/socket 370". the processoer is a pentium celeron.

so far, i have:

changed memory, changed CPU, checked and confirmed jumper settings, replaced the bios battery, replaced the BIOS chip itself, swaped power supplies, striped periphials, and even changed the system speaker to see if there was an "error beep" i was missing.

the results:

the VGA "card" is onboard, with a ribbon cable "dongle"

i think that somthing is bad in the electronics of the board itself.

the system was functional before, then i put it aside, while i worked with another machine. now it just "doesn't work".

if anyone has sugguestions (can't spell that word), or knows how to check the board itself, let me know.

Check and make sure the connections on your mouse and keyboard are secure.

If you are using USB connections for them, try PS2 instead, in fact, if you can borrow a mouse and keyboard from another computer try them, again, preferably not USB connected.

If they are wireless, change the batteries (yes, they do indeed have batteries).

EDIT Moved from Am I Infected to XP. As requested in post 22 ~~boopmeMy computer runs XP - Home.Last night I was prompted to update Media Player to version 8. I was afraid to do so, because many "updates" from MS mess up my computer. However, I loaded the update. I noticed the new icons in the tray and on the Start Menu, so I assumed all was well.On Friday nights I run my anti virus and anti spyware software. I started AVG anti-spyware. I checked on it 2 hours later and my boot up screen was on the monitor. By bootup screen I mean, when my machine is turned on, it stops soon after the bootup begins and says something about the Processor was changed??? and prompts me to hit F1 to continue or Del to go to the BIOS setup. I always hit F1 and the machine always bootsup just fine.Something happened while AVG was running to shut down the computer, what I don't know and I don't know if it is connected to the Media Player update or to a virus I picked up the night before (4 of us use this computer, so viruses and adware are not uncommon - I automatically run Norton Anti-virus and manually run AVG, Ad-Aware, SuperSpyware and Lavasoft). HOWEVER, this time when I hit F1 the machine did not boot up but rather loaded my desktop but with NO tray, NO icons and no response from the Windows key on the keyboard, but with only the mouse pointer on the screen.

I've been having problem the past 2 weeks with BSOD. I've run Prime95 for like 2h, no BSOD and the temp is around 75C, I've done some chkdsk on all of my drives. Have one SSD and four HDDs.
I've also run memtest86. First time I got one errr after pass 1 finished and started with pass 2. The test had run for like 2hrs. Then I pulled out one of the RAM(the one closest to the HDD cage), ran the test again for 2,5 passes(2-3hrs), no errors. Ran the RAM I pulled out, same length, no errors. Put the other three back in and ran the test over night for 8hrs, no errors.(??) I think it was around 5-7 passes. Under computer properties it was Installed RAM: 16GB (15,9GB usable)

But I still had problems. Reinstalled Windows 7 Enterprise, installed all the Windows updates and the drivers from Gigabytes webpage, this time without the EasyTune etc.
I also have simple programs like: uTorrent, Minecraft Server, Mumble Server, Wampserver, Plex Media Server and Filezilla Server on it. So no random programs etc.
Still got problems. I've tried to reset BIOS, didn't help. I have changed from IDE to AHCI in the BIOS(cause I have SSD). When I come home today I will try to pull out two RAM and see what happens, if that doesn't help, I will try to run with the two I pull out. I will also try to disconnect the HDDs and only have the SSD plugged in.
I will try to update BIOS too. If none works I will reinstall Windows again and dont install ANYTHING and see what happens. Any ideas? I... Read more

A:BSOD -ntoskrnl.exe main problem file

Here comes my dumps: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...6_17283367.rar
(Download link don't work for some reason. Check the atteched files further down the thread.)

Does it matter that I use my computer via Remote Access from my main computer? That shouldn't be an issue.

Got a BSOD now when I got home.
This time is was the files: ntoskrnl.exe, tcpip.sys and win32k.sys.

Took out 2 of 4 RAM slots and will see if it BSODs anything. The RAMS are at 1600mhz atm. Shall I change back to 1333mhz?
Under Computer Properties it says: Installed RAM: 8GB (7.88GB usable)

I also use Classic theme on the dekstop. Not the Areo.

EDIT: My Samsung 840 EV 120GB SSD have the latest firmware and the chkdsk didn't show any problems what I could see and Samsung Magician showed that the disk is healthy so I don't think is the SSD anyway.

Atm I'm running with 2x4GB RAM and trying to see if the system is stable. If not, I will try the other two sticks in the meantime you guys look at the dump files.

My problem is that recently my headphones and pc speakers arent qorking properly. normally when the headphones arent plugged in the speakers should play sound and when the headphones are plugged in, the speakers mute and sound goes to the headphones.

well now its one or the other. when i boot, if the headphones are in, sound only comes to them and when they are unplugged there is nothing. same for the speakers at boot. the "playback devices" menu recognizes when the headphones are plugged in but sound still streams to speakers unless it is booted with them plugged in.

more info. a while ago i uninstalled realtek and used the computer without it for about 6 months fine. then i realized it was still hiding on the computer and tried to re-install it. it worked until i started getting BSOD's with an AVG update. now realtek is hidden with no way to access it though it's drivers are still used in adobe audition and the speaker icon says im using the stock 'high definition audio device'. i feel like this has something to do with this.

any suggestions?

My ISP is sending me two ethernet over powerline adaptors with a new service they have started. It needs an etehrnet connection which is very close to where I have a switch so I don't need to use the powerline adaptors for their intended use.

Instead I want to use them in replacement of the wire that currently runs between my router and my switch (switch is the only thing plugged into the router), what is the usual speed of these ethernet over powerline adaptors?

Also are they usually reliable enough to use as the internet backbone of my network?

I have a Compaq Presario which has a fresh install of Windows 7 (legit). All was fine until I was playing a game on Facebook and when I went to play it again one day it wouldn't load properly to the game. I saw a popup prompting that to play games you might want adobe flash player installed but I am fairly sure I installed that when I installed windows7. I am normally very thorough but I tried to reinstall it anyway since it wouldn't or shouldn't hurt.
I then found that it wouldn't follow all the way through on the install. Partway through the install I get a popup saying "Installation encountered errors. Actionlist not found."
I am also getting messages almost everytime I try to go to a website. I get a screen message that the site is dangerous and I have to agree to an exception in my security to get there. I never set my security that high or like that. It has done that on it's own. I am trying to find where to lower the sensitivity but have had no luck so far.
Sometimes when I left click on a link or anything on the webpage that requires a left mouse click it does not accept it. I know that there is nothing wrong with the mouse. I have tested and confirmed it.

A:Main Problem is Windows 7 not allowing updates or installs

You can adjust your security setting from 'Control Panel / Internet Options / Security' but it is possible you have picked up a malware infection. I would advise that you download Malwareytes from here :
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

and run it as per its instructions. If this shows anything that you cannot confidentally deal with yourself, or that Malwarebytes cannot deal with on your behalf, you should post baqck here but in the 'Am I infected' section.

On my secondary computer, when I first got it, already had the Get Windows 10 app on the taskbar. I updated to 10 on that computer and I am really liking it, so much in fact that I want it on my main computer. But apparently, the last time I updated the thing was in 2013 (oops). I installed all the updates, but the Get Windows 10 app is not showing up, and none of the guides online of how to get it are working for me. Is it still possible for me to upgrade? This computer is more powerful than the second computer, so it really should have no problems. Here are the specs:

This PC is attached to a network containing several desktops and laptops running Vista. The Samsung laser printer ML-2240 is attachde by USB to this XP PC. Printing over the network operates perfectly with all other PCs. I have just purchased an Acer laptop with Windows 7 and followed the instructions for file sharing, which works perfectly. I have followed the instructions for installing the printer, and received confirmation that it is installed. However, when I attempt to print out of Word 2007 and press the button "find printer" in the Samsung printer profile I get the message "Active Directory Main Services is currnely unavailable". I see that this has been found over the years by many people! I am looking for a solution in my context. The rest of the network operates fine still and I can edit the same Word file over the network and print fine.... Read more

Here is the situation. My customer called me and said his computer keeps booting in an endless loop. I suspected a corrupted master boot record. I went to his house, booted up into the Recovery Console, did memory checks and such, and did a FIXBOOT command. Well, this did nothing for me except give me some typing practice. I noticed too that I can't get it to boot into SAFE MODE.

When I rebooted it, it came up with the infamous "NTLDR IS MISSING - PRESS CTRL-ALT-DEL TO RESTART". And then it gets really exciting!! I tried rebooting again and got the BSOD 0x0000007f error. Well, I did all of the normal processes of elimination by removing one RAM module at a time (but memory already checked good so it was more of a second check than anything else) and disconnected one CD/DVD drive, although since I worked on the hard drive last, it just makes sense that something went awry on the hard drive.

Moving right along, I removed the hard drive and connected it to my Linux laptop (gotta love Linux!!!) and Linux sees all of the folders and files. I think something got messed up in the boot sector but now all I can get is a constant BSOD. Let me just clarify one point I left out above....the BSOD appears when I try to boot from the Windows XP disc in an attempt to get back into the Recovery Console. I think that perhaps the FIXBOOT and FIXMBR commands jacked up some pointers and now the processor doesn't know where to look so it stops.

I say all that to ask this: Is ... Read more

A:[SOLVED] BSOD due to main hard drive

Hi Mike, you know I've been seeing this kind of thing alot lately. It ususally ends up being just like you said a totally messed up boot record. Now how this comes to be I really haven't found out yet, although I suspect some sort of a Win update, 3rd party service conflict that is occuring to all these computers. Although you may very well be able to resolve this without a reinstall, since you are able to recover the info with linux, the easiest fastest way to fix this persons computer is going to be to get the data, use kill disk to wipe the drive and do a format and re-install. Believe me the client will thank you since the computer will most likely work better than ever. If you need a link to download killdisk just let me know. I'm sorry I don't have a better fix for you, but I have tried everything else with this problem and as I said this was always the easiest fix.

Let Me know if I can help further.

I've been trying to clear out my hard drive of some stuff to free up some much needed space. However, I can't seem to find what it is that's taking up so much space. When I look at what all is on there, nothing seems to add up to the amount that it says is on there. My main drive is 69.6 GB big and it says I have 13 GB free (I know that's low, that's why I'm trying to clear it out of things I don't need on there). The problem is, I have uninstalled and deleted everything I don't need and have the main drive almost down to the essentials and a few other programs I use regularly. It should leave me with almost 30 GB free space, but as I have mentioned, it says I only have 13 GB free. Aside from what I have done, how else can I find out what is taking up all this space? Could it just be that something is wrong with my main drive? Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a hard drive that comes with my PC and that has a corrupted Windows, but the boot.ini still works fine. So I got a new hard drive and installed a new fresh copy of Windows XP on it. So now I want to format the old hard drive and use the new hard drive as the boot drive. However, if I removed the old hard drive, the new hard drive doesn't boot at all. I've tried using the FIXMBR, FIXBOOT, and BOOTCFG /REBUILD commands, but I think I did it wrong.

Hi, I have been through all the threads and I cannot seem to find one that is similar to mine. I had a network that was working fine, and now suddenly my main computer has disappeared from the network. It just suddenly happened when I tried to print to the main printer on the network.
I can access the internet on the router and print to my main colour printer that is connected to my computer but when I click "View workgroup computers" I get the following message "Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrater of this service to find out if you have permissions. The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available"
I also cannot print to Acrobat Distiller.
I recently changed from McAfee to Kapersky because McAfee was not able to update and I also ran RegCure. Could either of these things have caused my network to disappear? I also removed Google Desktop Search and then installed it again a week or so later. Sorry if these are dunb questions but I am a real newbie to the way computers work and only know my way around digital image editing!

A:Solved: Why has my main computer disappeared from the network?

Hi Everyone, Is my face red! My son suggested that I check if both my Firewalls were turned on, and sure enough - they were. When I turned off the Kapersky one, My Network places magically returned. I hope this helps other newbies like myself.

I sadly don't really know to much about how to fix computers past the more basic problems so I hope this is all the relevant information
My computer was fine 2 days ago and I can't think of anything that might have caused it to, well, not be. It hasn't been dropped or had anything spilt on it, I scan it regularily for viruses, malware and the like, haven't installed or downloaded anything recently either.
Anyway, yesterday when I logged in it took 20 minutes from submitting the password to fully loading the desktop. It was fairly slow and nothing Google would work, upon trying to open AVG anti virus it crashed. I opened it in the safe mode, ran a few scans, followed the windows prompts, restarted it and it worked fairly well (the login delay continued). Later in the evening upon trying to start it though it would not log in saying that the C: Drive cannot be located and then bring me back to the account screen. This morning when trying to log in in order to copy down the error message, it blue screened and said there was an essential compnent missing and rebooted.
I can still log in on the admin account but it will not load the desktop icons or any of the menu items - only My Computer and Control Panel will open.
I'm presently on exchange and I need my computer not only for work but because my laptop is the only communication I have with back home and I really need it to be working as soon as possible.
