Help Please-1 Notebook, 1 PS3 What do I Need?

Q: Help Please-1 Notebook, 1 PS3 What do I Need?

I have a simple set-up and I know there's a simple answer but I can't find it anywhere, and I don't want to go to Future Shop looking totally ignorant so ... I plan to buy a D-Link WBR-2310 wireless router to replace my wired D-Link router. I have a Toshiba Satellite A100-VA1 notebook which has built-in wireless which I want to use ... wireless. I have a Playstation 3 which I'll wire direct to the router because it's close anyways. I have a cable modem. Question(s) is ... don't laugh ... is there anything else I need? When I run the setup wizard through the laptop, I need to be wired to the modem, set up the router, set up the network and then disconnect the cable from the laptop and then I'm wireless? My wife has put the thought into my head that I'll need a main computer wired to the router which would be used by anything wireless to access the network. I hope I've made my situation clear, any help would be much appreciated.

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.)

The wireless router is all you need. You are correct that the only time you need to have a computer connected by ethernet is when configuring the router or upgrading its firmware.

Unless you plan to buy a matching D-Link Rangemax wireless adapter you will be using only standard 802.11g 54Mbps; so consider saving money by buying a standard router without "turbo," "108Mbps" or any other extras. The WBR-2310 Rangemax MAY give you somewhat better range, but don't count on it.

A problem has recently developed with my Envy notebook.   About 2 weeks ago my entire wireless network began slowing down when on it.   Noticeable on all devices.    When my provider came out, checked and tweaked some issues it appeared to be ok.   I went on with my daughers HP laptop and was drawing 20-24 mbps all over the house. When I reconnected mine to the system I was only pulling 6, 3, 5, up and down.   It doesn't start right away but after a few minutes.   So I put my duaghers right next ot mine and low and behold, when I ran her's it pulled 3 - 6 also.   So I turned my wi-fi off and hers' popped right back up.   I have also tried this with an old XP mini, my i-pads etc.   As soon as mine gets on the network the speed crashes.    This also happens with no one else home and no other devies conncted. I have downloaded the latest up to date Intel driver for this network adapter and it hasn't changed anything. Any ideas?

Bill_Ving Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wireless networking poor performance and wanted to help. My immediate guess is that you might have mixed-mode networking going on.  This happens when you have two different PCs networking in two different modes -- one using "G", the other using "N".  The wireless router (or access point) can optimize performance for either mode, but not for both.  So, the "G" mode drags down the performance of the "N" mode PC, but even worse, with the router set for mixed modes, it performs more slowly than with either PC connected by itself.Here are some other troubleshooting steps you can try: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8) | HP® Customer SupportGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================

I made a Google notebook to keep the minutes of a meeting my business partners and I held last weekend. I made them all collaborators on the notebook so they could all make any changes or annotations they felt necessary. However, when they go to access this notebook they are prompted for a password.

There is nowhere (at least that I can find) to even choose to password protect the notebook let alone change the password. I'm pretty confused as to what password the notebook could be. The only thing I can think of is that it's asking for the password to my gmail account, which I don't really want to be handing out. Any ideas on this one gang?

New here and so I hope that I am posting in the correct place.
My new notebook an M50-MX5 was in the warranty depot as we thought it had a dvd burning problem, however that was not the case; it was the media.

Anyway before it was sent into the toshiba warranty depot the level 2 tech phone support said to get the computer to be like it was when I unboxed it 2 days earlier, this was last month.
And so to my frustration all of my programs were removed, however before doing this the software techie at the office Ghosted it to my Western Digital Storage Unit and then sent it off to the Warranty Depot.

While it was in the shop I used my 3 yr old toshiba satellite 2410 which I am now typing on at this moment.
I was finally able to get the software tech from the office to reGhost my new toshiba M50 on this past Saturday and left it with him for a couple of hrs and then returned to pick it up as there was not much in the way of programs on it and so it wouldn't take long to Ghost the Images back.

Well, in my Western Digital Storage unit are Ghosts of this 3 year old satellite that I am presently using.
After the techie got my Restore Disk installed and tried to reGhost the image onto the New M50, it crashed.

He was using the wrong Ghost, he was using the one that was from this unit???
I was not happy, especially after he claimed that he now had it Ghosted with the proper Image and I tried it out and it was very sloooooow to Boot. He said it was my Norton 2006.

Something you might want to try (it's a pita) is a repair of windows - this may fix some of the slowness issues you're seeing. The install program he's talking about is probably the U3 component of many larger USB pen drives. I think it's on most of Sandisk's newer large drives. A repair of windows might also take care of this. I seriously doubt that putting the wrong image on the machine and then putting another image on could do any damage to the machine itself - the folks here at my job do it all the time.

My wife has a two-year-old Samsung notebook. Recently when she unplugged it the machine cut off, even though the battery said 79% charged (it wouldn't charge any further). I figured that the battery was bad so I bought another one from Amazon.

This one charges to 100% percent and does exactly the same thing. I'm perplexed but think there's something going on with the motherboard that won't let it use battery juice, even if Windows 8.1 says it's 100% charged.

I've tried the hold the power button down for 1 min with the battery out trick to no avail.

Any ideas? I'm stumped and think I might need to get her another notebook.

My HP Pavilion dv9300 series laptop's display is shot. I think it's the motherboard that is creating the problem. The only way to get a display to show up is using an external monitor and disabling the NVIDIA graphic drivers. From what I've read, the MB is overworking the graphics card, causing it to overheat and fry. There was a recall for a number of notebooks that had this problem, but mine did not have the proper product number so HP will not fix it (without making me pay $425). Is anyone out there familiar with this issue and if so, what would be the best (cheapest and most effective) way to resolve it? Thank you!

Hi cured,

I see what you mean, contacting Toshiba for help would be a good idea
Failing this, many drivers are used on more than one version of Laptop. Use a program such as Everest or PC Wizard which will tell you what hardware you have and then go to the Toshiba site and see if for example the A210 has the drivers that you need then download them and try an install.

Or you can go directly to the manufacturer eg. Nvidia, Realtek and download the needed drivers this way.

I hope this helps

Hi,

I have a problem with my uncle`s notebook.

First of all, the notebook specs
-Vista Ultimate 32 bits, notebook HP pavillion dv6700
Core 2 duo t5550 1,83Ghz, 3Gb RAM , Nvidia 8400M GS Geforce.

He used the pre-installed vista home premium that came with the notebook.
And, he got a problem. The navigator wouldn`t just open Youtube, some images would only load 95% , and when the image loaded 95% , a error appeared instead of the full image (The image cannot be loaded because it contains errors ) .

He thought that the problem would be in his version of Adobe Flash, so he tried to install the new version, and then when he was in the site of adobe, they said that his OS was not supported.

So he upgraded to vista ultimate and the problem still persists.
I tried to install a clean version of the Ultimate, but the Boot Menu is not working,
I press f12, than he waits like 30 seconds, and then it boots windows vista.
And there is also the problem that the disc is not being recognized.

In another computer, the disc is recognized.
(OBS| The disc is lightscribe, ( the computer reads lightscribe) ).
(OBS2| Many people have the same problem)
Well, i think that is all..
If i said something wrong, please quote.

Thanks for your patience, Alex.

If you are having optical reading problem in your clean installation attempt, you can always wipe out your HDD then install Vista. Of course, I am assuming you have backed up all important data.

I have a dell inspiron 4000 notebook that has no CD Rom drive and no floppy drive, I plan to buy a external CD Rom to use with ny notebook but some question arise, (1) if I format my hardrive and install a new OS before the OS is install would the computer recognized my external CD Rom? (2) If I can't use my CD Rom then would it better to buy an hard drive adapter to hook it up to my desktop PC and format the notebook hard drive and install the OS from that machine( ONLY THE OS NOT THE DRIVER FOR ANY EQUIPMENT)
 

A:CD Rom for notebook

1. Since the external cd rom device would probably be a parallel port or USB kind, the computer will not see it before you install the OS
2.No . Hooking up the laptop hdd and formated, it's ok no problem there, but once you install the OS on it , the OS will try to install the drivers for whatever the hardware is inside the PC. For instance , let's say that the laptop has a Intel chipset , and the desktop has a VIA chipset, well the OS will try to install the drivers for the VIA and you need the Intel ones..
Best you can do is to make sure that the cd rom driver that you will buy cames with DOS drivers . Then format the hard drive on the laptop ( using the desktop machine ) and install the cd rom DOS drivers on it. Then hook up the hard drive back to the laptop and connect the cd rom drive. Boot up and you should have access to the cd rom drive at that point.

Please bear with me as this will be a bit long. I have a question about overclocking, a question about putting a new CPU, and a question related to the two previous ones.

I have a Dell Vostro 1510 notebook with the following specs:-
-CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 2.5Ghz "FSB 800Mhz" 6MB L2 Cache 45W
-IGP: Intel X3100 (@500Mhz)
-4GB DDR2 677Mhz

I want to OC the notebook. My temps right now are 49C, I think these are good.
I can decrease temps further by up to 10C by using thermal paste.
I can implement some cooling mods, specially that I don't use my laptop very much as a portable device. I will even use it as a file/computing server soon, so I will be able to implement even better cooling.

So, yeah, my notebook has the capacity for some overclocking, can you help me do it? I have some questions:-
A) Will modding the bios definitely lead to ability to OC?
B) Will FSB modding (or Volt modding) etc... (by insulation a pin, or connecting two pins) succeed in my notebook?
C) setFSB and all these don't work for my notebook, so no need to suggest them, my PLL probably will never be supported.
Also, I may buy a better CPU, what will happen if I put a CPU with 1066 FSB?

Also, will a CPU with unlocked multiplier (yet without OC support at BIOS) help in OCing?
Thank you.

To work on an audio connector, do I need a driver or do I have this input broken? Thank you for the answers.

Hi,The PC supports a maximum of 16GB DDR3L 1600 RAM (2x8GB). It is good idea to install exactly the same RAM, there are kits of 2x8GB RAM sticks online for good price. It will give most performance and system stability.You will need to install Windows 64-bit version to be able to use the RAM if upgraded. You will need to perform a fresh install. You can download windows 10 from Microsoft and it will automatically be activated as long as it is same edition. Here is the audio driver for your system:http://h20566.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=6943803&swItemId=ob_172457_1&swEnvOid=419... Let me know,David

I have a two and a half year old Compaq notebook maxed out at 2GB Ram that came with Vista. As soon as it was out of warranty, I wiped the hard drive and installed XP Pro. I've run W7 Upgrade Advisor and it says W7 will run on my machine. My question is does it matter which version (Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate) and which bit (32/64) to get the fastest system? Most of what I use it for is the internet and email. Maybe some video. Not a heavy duty user.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
==========================

New info 18 Dec:

One thing I forgot to mention is that as a student I can upgrade to W7 Professional for $65 or I can get W7 Home Premium for $125 from Costco. Any suggestions?

Thanks for all the replies so far.

A:How well will W7 run on my notebook

If your planning to use it only for internet, mail, videos and other normal tasks, you'll be good to go with Home Premium.
And 32bit or 64bit? Well, i think the below article will answer your questions-
Windows 7 32-bit vs 64-bit

I'm going to be buying a notebook computer. I'm trying to decide between two right now.

One is an alienware m5550, I customized it to be 2.0 Core 2 Duo T7200, 1gb ddr2 667mhz ram, 120 gb hdd, dvd burner, 256MB NVidia GeForce Go 7600. This one costs about 1,800.

The other is an ASUS F3Jm. I customized this one to be a 2.0 core duo T2500, 1 gb ddr2 667 ram, 100 gb hdd, dvd burner, 512 MB NVidia GeForce Go 7600 for about 1700.

So, should I go with the top for better processor but lower video, or should I go for the bottom with the lower processor and higher video? I would really like to get one with both the 512mb video, and the core 2 duo processor, but I can't seem to find one, and I'm sure if I do it'll be too expensive. (1800 is about my limit)

I would really appreciate any input you guys can give me, thanks again guys.

@CatByte
Does it have the Recovery Console installed? If so are you able to boot to the Recovery Console?

Not as far as I'm aware. (How can I check this?)
Do you have access to an installation disk? Nope (also: it lacks a disk-drive)

What OS is the laptop in question?
Windows XP


Can it boot from a USB stick? From my knowledge, yes.

when did the logon / logoff loop start? Late January following a powerful virus scan (that had left the notebook laptop with Sdra64.exe trojan).

what files were deleted prior to this starting? do you recall the names of those files? No, I was not with the user who was using my laptop at the time.

what programs have you run or did your AV remove some bad files? The AV program last ran was 'Spybot Search & Destroy'
Edit: it doesn't log in, on any mode (safe-modes, last working settings)

get into your machine's BIOS and see if there is a hard drive identified.

if not, set it to auto-select, see what goes on.

failing that, circumstances look dire...

Hi! A friend of mine is entering nursing school and couldn't believe the price of textbooks. He found that he can get the books in pdf form at a considerably lower price. I told him he could use a laptop or notebook. However, he doesn't want to buy a laptop or a notebook to use in class. He'll be taking notes in class, as well as following in the pdf textbook. Will something like a kindle have a keyboard and that capability? Is there anything else he could use besides a laptop or notebook? Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello. I have a notebook "HP Pavilion Zx5003EA " and it's been a while I don't use it. Now I tried to turn on and won't turn on anymore. I checked and the power supply is working. What can be?

A:notebook

It is very, very old, like 15 years. You might try removing the battery. It can be so dead it keep the laptop from powering up. Otherwise it would be hard to get repair parts and it is not really worth much.

I am looking for a good durable notebook computer. I need one that is light weight, and will work well as a wireless network. I have a gateway desk top I purchased new in 2003 but I am totally in the dark in reference to buying a notebook. I want the newest version of windows software on it, and to be able to access the internet. This computer will be used for college mostly.

Thank you for any advice you can give me on making the best purchase.

Welcome to Techspot!!

What kind of money are you looking at spending? In my experience, I would stay away from Toshiba's. They tend to have keyboard and overheating problems. Depending on your budget of course....I would look at an IBM Thinkpad maybe.
