Computer and Modem are providing conflicting information

Q: Computer and Modem are providing conflicting information

Alright well recently, as in the last couple of days, I have been having problems with my internet. At random intervals of the day my computer will tell me that it is connected to the modem but the modem is not connected to the internet. However when I look over at the modem all of the lights are on and flashing like they should be. The DSL light is on and the Internet light is flashing to show that it's working. Furthermore if I go into the setup page for the modem using my browser the status page there also tells me that the DSL is connected and that the LAN is connected as well.

This happens randomly and when it does I attempt to correct this myself by changing my static IP settings and DNS server settings. Eventually it does start working again but I don't know if it is because of something I actually fixed or by random luck. I hope you guys here can help me figure out this problem.

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 am currently looking at purchasing a Samsung 730b or 740b. However, I'm getting conflicting reports about the colors that it can display. Some websites (and the brochure) say that it is 6bit Dithering (16.2M colors), while others say that it's 8bit (16.7M colors).

Anyone have one of these monitors and know if they are actually 6 or 8 bit?

Thanks!

Trying to determine the maximum amount of RAM the ThinkPad T480 can take, however there is conflicting information provided by Lenovo. On Lenovo's online New Zealand store it mentions that the ThinkPad T480 CPU will need to be upgraded ("Upgrade the processor to select up to 32 GB of memory") in order for the max RAM to be 32 GB (in the customise section) which is very confusing, yet in the ThinkPad T480 Product Specification document it mentions 32 GB RAM for all CPU configurations. Lenovo haven't responded to the ThinkPad T480 sales enquiry I have submitted, which includes the question on the ThinkPad T480 max RAM. On Lenovo's online New Zealand store the chat function is broken, and there is no clear information provided about their contact hours. Is Lenovo's New Zealand sales/support team on holiday?

Hi there...

Finally decided to upgrade to Windows 10 and have downloaded all updates. However, When I click on the GWX icon, it says my PC can't run 10, claiming a compatibility issue. Then, after I click on "view report", it tells me I'm ready to upgrade.

Is this some sort of bug? The upgrade in the updates section is checked as if it's ready to go....

Thanks for any help you can give.

So, on clean install, I am trying to install all my drivers. Obviously one of the network cards is covered. Now, I go to device manager, look through, to find the latest driver. Here is the driver I am working at this moment:Intel 82801FBM LPC Interface Controller - 2641.On one driver website which lists the device exactly as listed, I see this message:The Intel? Chipset Software Installation Utility installs the Windows* INF files. The INF files inform the operating system how to properly configure the chipset for specific functionality, such as AGP, USB, Core PCI, and ISAPNP services.**Note**This is the last version of the Intel? Chipset Software Installation Utility that supports the Intel? 810/815/820/830/852/855 Chipset families, as well as the Intel? 840/860 Chipsets.But I already know my chipset is in the Intel 900 series... which in itself took 3 days of Googling 'cause the setup program does not identify itself as anything other then "1.5", and my device manager and System Information identifies everything as, "Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family," which actually does not exist, as for the variations on the name, more then one exists, so I could not even identify the chipset until I found Intel's auto-identification utility, and I don't remember what it was but it was 900-something not 800-something... the Device ID for this particular device is 8086:2641, but I guarantee there will be many, many more...

Secunia is reporting that the following is out of date and is vulnerable: -

"Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)"

This seems very strange for the following reasons:-

1. 2005 is a long time back. I run Secunia PSI once a week. Why is it only reporting this now?

2. Microsoft Update does not report this as being out of date.

The Folder information is the normal Microsoft Windows Folder for this software, so it is not another version installed by some 3rd party software.

Any thoughts or is anyone else getting this same message when running Secunia PSI on a Vista system?

My modem has been randomly cutting out (but still displaying as connected and I cannot connect it and the status window disappears before it even comes up). After this happens certain sounds do not play. Some do, some don't. (For example, starting up Neverwinter Nights 2, the launcher sound does not play. The sound in game is fine.) Research on the internet has pointed me to possibly an IRQ conflict. I looked at my sound card and my modem and they are indeed on the same IRQ (18). None of the sites I have looked at give specific enough instructions or are extremely complicated. I was hoping someone here could give me better help with the problem. Or if maybe something else is the actual problem (as many sites say that multiple devices ont he same IRQ shoudln't be a problem on WinXP.)

I've just installed a new modem and it works fine. The problem arises when i want to conduct voice chat using Msn or Yahoo messengers.

When i try to have a voice conversation using these programs, i get a message that my sound device is being used by another application and i should close it to be able to have voice chat. The thing is when i close the modem connection, the audio setting wizards in these programs start to work, but then there aint any internet connection to have voice chat. I also tried to record and play using the Sound Recorder built in windows and it gives the same error msg when i am connected to the internet using this modem.

Apparently, my modem is creating all this problem. Can somebody please help out?

Thnx in advance
 

A:Cant have voice chat cos the modem is conflicting with sound device

Very hard to offer advice when you do not supply any details of the computer, the operating system, the modem...

IF its a Windows PC
and IF it's using an internal modem, then "uninstall" the modem from device manager, power down the PC, open the case, shift the modem to another PCI slot and power up.

Reinstall the modem, this time it should be using a different IRQ due to the slot change, and might avoid the conflict.

Make sure you have the modem drivers available before you start.

Greetings,

A while back I had an old computer that basically would power on simply by providing power to it (we used one of those "power center" bases where you could turn everything on with the flick of a switch).

Both my current computers basically play dead when you give them power, they only boot once you manually press the "on" switch on the tower.

My question is, what exactly determines whether or not a computer powers on by simply having juice vs. having juice AND pressing the power button on the unit itself? Is it the mobo? The power supply? I'm thinking mobo, but I wonder if this is something I can select by fiddling with jumpers or something.

I'm planning to set this particular computer inside an arcade cabinet for MAME. Ideally, I want to be able to have the machine boot just by flipping on a surge protector. Any ideas?

Ok I will try to explain this as easy as possible.

A couple weeks ago my old computer got a virus that would not allow me to access control panel and desktop properties. Since that computer was old and on the outs anyways I bought a "new" computer from a suggested computer guy. The computer seemed fine but his suggestion was to download my entire hard drive to the new computer since there was so many files I needed from it. Before he did this I had installed quickbooks onto the new computer and it was working fine.

Quickbooks worked fine until yesterday when I got an error I could not fix. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but now it had conflicting errors. I have tried deleting every file associated with quickbooks but the problem is is that what he downloaded from my old harddrive is "read only, or encrypted" and it will nto let me access or delete most of the files in that folder for the user on the old computer.

Is there a way to delete this file that I dont know about (like a backend) or is there a way to make it not be Read Only? Whenever i try it says I dont have access...

This is really important if someone could please help

A:New computer conflicting with old files

Hey Guys,

I have a wonderful Dell monitor that works great, but I have never really been able to get straight answers on how to clean it. There is almost no dust, but there are streaks that are noticeable especially when the sun shines on it. I usually use an old 100% cotton T-Shirt and a tiny bit of water, turn off everything and wipe the surface. That kills the dust, but not the streaks , it looks like there might be some mild scratches. I always power down first obviously.

A computer guru I know uses just a little bit of Windex, but others say, don't do that it will streak the surface. I also tried Endust for Electronics because it says it cleans computers. Now on the back I read, "May not be suitable for LCD or Plasma Screens."

What should I use? I am getting different advice from different people. It's strange because unless the sunlight is really bright, it still looks fine.

A:Getting Conflicting Advice on Cleaning A Computer Monitor

Jack,

You repeated the same error in your second post. However, you could simply click on the Edit button and correct your original post.

I've never had to use anything other than water and a microfiber cloth (only slightly damp, not soaking wet). It's best to use distilled water and according to this article you can mix it 50/50 with white vinegar if necessary:

http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-a-Laptop-Screen-with-Household-Products

It's important not to spray anything directly on the screen but simply dampen your cloth slightly and Windex or any other window cleaner is a no-no.

Hallo,

After 3 days of frustration with the Lenova support hotline I'm failing trying to solve my BSOD problem myself. Only trouble is that I cannot get the Laptop to boot at all, either in normal mode or safe mode. Thus I cannot get the information required from the http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ns-452654.html thread.

So this is what I know:

? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? new install
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)?
Actually it's a upgrade installed on a fresh hard drive (my mistake as I originally formated the XP off)
? Age of system (hardware) - bought june 2010
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? no - not yet.
? CPU - i7 Q720
? Video Card - nVidia
? MotherBoard - dont know
? Power Supply - brand & wattage - Standard lenova power supply

A:Help providing my BSOD info

Sorry, but there is not a lot we can do to help you. There is obviously something seriously wrong with the hardware of your laptop.

My advice is to contact Lenovo again and don't take "No" for an answer until they are willing to replace your laptop; it should not be acting up like that.

If you want to back up your data, try this method:

Quote:




One way of backing up data is via Ubuntu. Ubuntu is completely free, and has the advantage that it can be run off a USB stick or a CD - saving you having to install it on your hard drive.

You can get it from here: Download | Ubuntu

Step #2 on that page shows you how to create the USB/CD.

Once you get it running - copy the data from your hard drive to an external drive. Do not copy to the Ubuntu drive as the data will not be saved on shutdown.

I have a bit of a good and tricky question...

I have a network consisting of 20 computers configured 192.168.1.10-30/24.

The question is as follows: I have a Server that is connected to the internet. It has two NIC one has the DSL router the other the is connected to the switch which is in turn is running the LAN. I wish to supply the LAN with internet *BUT* I want to be able to monitor bandwidth usage - display summaries, assign quotas, assign priorities and manage User accounts with passwords for each individual. I have tried a couple of things - including: running NAT, ISA server and bridging.

All of these can provide the LAN with internet access - but with NAT alone I can't monitor and summarize, with ISA it does not give me the correct User/Password management and with bridging there is nothing at all.

Please tell me there is something out there that can help me!

We have a usb scanner that requires 500mA of power.  However, for several of our customers using HPs, the usb ports are not providing enough power to the scanner causing an application crash.  Some customers are using the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 USDT, others are using HP t310 zero clients.  Plugging the scanner into a powered usb hub has resolved the issue every time.  Is there a modification they can make to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers to ensure that a particular port will be able to provide 500mA so they do not need to purchase a powered usb hub for every system?  Or do you have another suggestion? Thanks in advance.

I'm getting this error;
Windows is not providing a valid folder name for the "Common Desktop" folder. I tried several searches, but it's such a odd error message. I could see a message that it couldn't find a folder, but not providing a proper name?

The program that is giving me the error is ThumbsPlus V8. I have installed at least 25 other programs prior to this error with little issue (other than it's W7). I un-installed V8 and installed V7 of the same program with no error.

Any guess what that error message is suppose to mean?

I've got a Dell desktop computer with horizontal drive bays standing up on its side, like a tower. The computer was designed for this by coming equipped with a CD-ROM drive that has tabs at the 4 corners so that the CD will remain in the tray in a vertical position (I hope I haven't confused anyone). I have an open drive bay and would like to install an internal SCSI CD-RW. Is there a SCSI CD-RW that can be used in the vertical position (with tabs), like my existing CD-ROM drive? Any help will be appreciated.

I've been tasked with building a network for a Cafe that includes free wifi for customers. I'm looking for suggestions about how I might go about doing so. I'm fairly capable and am willing to put some work into getting it the way I'd like. Also, if you have "pieces to the puzzle" that would meet requirements, I'd work towards getting them all together. I do have a somewhat quick timeline, though. My requirements and thoughts are:
a no- to low-cost solution (excluding necessary networking hardware)
needs to be able to easily handle up to 25ish connected users without any noticeable issues
WPA2 encryption (I'll have a static key up for display, that may or may not change periodically)
I'd like a landing page upon first DNS request that redirects to an "I accept" type legal page
* this page should continue to display until the accept button is pressed (I'm guessing it'd keep track via MAC or IP, if MAC not possible)​* the list of accepted clients should be cleared each night, so they have to accept each day​
some kind of automatic block for someone that is on regularly/daily
* the idea behind this is the owners are worried about keeping businesses and business-people in the area from leaching from our free connection without being regular customers​* I should be able to easily remove a block in case of a user that is rightfully using the connection​

I have a custom built PC and a long time ago my mouse died. I thought it was due to the mouse just being faulty but I tried it with another PC and it worked perfectly. I was confused and tried the mouse in the bios settings of my computer and it worked perfectly again. However when I booted into Windows, the lights on the mouse went out and Windows didn't even pick up that a mouse was connected. I also noticed that certain USB memory drives and external hard drives were very temperamental when it came to functioning properly with certain USB ports, it just seemed to be random whether they decided to work or even be recognised by Windows. This was usually fixed by unplugging and plugging them back in or trying a different port. I sort of ruled out a motherboard or port issue as the ports that didn't work were always different, and it was all very random.

The mouse however, didn't work at all regardless of which port it was plugged into. I managed to come up with one fix though, my keyboard has one USB passthrough which when I plugged the mouse into, worked perfectly again and so I used that for a few months as a temporary fix. The external memory problem wasn't fixed though.

Then today the keyboard died too, it is fully back light and it just went out following an update of Windows. Neither the passthrough nor the keyboard itself work at all and are as if they are both unplugged. They are not even recognised in Windows. One strange thing however is that when I plug my keyb...

I have an Acer Aspire M5 481PT-6644 running Windows 8.1. While using a wireless mouse, the mouse became disconnected from my computer (not physically disconnected, but an error message popped up saying the device was not recognized). I pulled out the USB wireless transmitter, plugged it back in, and it re-connected with my computer. Shortly thereafter the mouse became disconnected again (same thing as before with an error message) and now no USB device will connect to my computer. I will get power from the USB port, but it will never recognize devices and nothing shows up when I scan for new devices.
My computer has 2 usb 3.0 ports and neither port works. I made sure to try multiple devices and check that these were working on other computers.
I first tried deleting all of the USB drivers (every driver listed under the "Universal Serial Bus Controller" section in the device manager) and then restarting the computer, but the problem remained.

I tried using a system restore point, but the USB ports still weren't recognizing devices even after the restore (though I am not 100% the restore point was far enough back since I tried a lot of different things before doing the restore).

I changed the power settings for the USB port so that the power was always on, still nothing (I was always getting power through the ports, it just wasn't recognizing devices).

I have used AirBnB some time ago but am very hesitant to use it today. Which is a shame because I could save a bundle of money. So I would appreciate comments on the following.
 
AirBnB has a policy that in order to rent a room, I must provide either a link to my social media site that contains my picture or provide a picture of my personal ID such as a driver's license or passport. AirBnB uses Jumio to validate IDs. Jumio's privacy policy states: "Jumio may use the Personally-Identifying Information a user submits for any purposes related to Jumio's business, including, but not limited to providing you with Jumio's services and personalizing and improving those services for you."  This makes me very uneasy. This could mean that Jumio, if it wanted, could sell my personal ID if it helped generate revenue for their business. At the very least, my personal ID would end up in the database of AirBnB and Jumio. Makes me very uneasy.
 
So my question is:  Am I being paranoid in not wanting to provide my ID to AirBnB? Is this a real privacy concern?

A:AirBnB - is providing a pic. of my personal ID a privacy concern?

Your analysis of their policy is correct. And if it makes you very uneasy, you should not use them.
 
Why don't you use the first option: picture on social media? I suppose that is not going through Jumio?

Hoping someone can help me with my networking dilemma. I have a desktop computer running Vista, and a laptop running Win 7.
 
The Vista machine can see all the folders on Win7 and write to those folders, the Win7 machine sees the computer (Gateway) but cannot see the folders at all. When I diagnose the problem, Win7 comes up with "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection".
 
Now what is odd is these two have worked fine together for a couple of years. I shared a Video folder last week and ever since the Vista machine no longer shows its folders to the rest of the network. One other thing that happened recently, although this sharing problem happened before I removed it, but I got an Alreon virus on the Vista machine which I managed to clean (thanks to this site), and that machine runs much faster now, but still will not be seen by the laptop.
 
I have tried various suggestions I have come across while researching this: all the right things are checked in Sharing and Discovery; Client for Microsoft Networks is checked; TCP/IPv6 is unchecked,and v4 is checked.
 
Lost as to what to do to get back to Win7 accessing Vista.
 
Thanks,

I have an Asus A8N-E mobo which has optical and coax outputs for 5.1 sound and an nForce4 chipset. I just got a set of Logitech Z-5500 5.1 speakers and couldn't get them to receive a signal from either digital output from my mobo. They worked if I hooked them up to the direct outputs, but not the digital.

I called Asus and they told me to install the Realtek sound drivers instead of the nForce4 sound drivers which I was using. So I did. Now both the optical and coax jacks on my mobo output sound (and with quite a bit more volume than the direct hookups), but the sound quality in some games (Half-Life 2, Galactic Civilizations 2) is noticably choppier. However, the biggest disappointment came when I fired up Battlefield 2. When I actually get into the game the sound is absolutely awful. None of the sounds I hear coming from the speakers is representative of anything that's happening on my screen. It's horribly loud, and the same sounds keep looping over and over again. When I press ESC to quit the game my pc actually crashes to a blue screen of death (which has never happend once in all of my years of using XP Pro) which tells me that "ati2dvag" is causing the problem and the driver is stuck in an infinite loop. What fun!

I'm not really concerned about fixing this problem with the Realtek driver because I'm not happy with its performance in games that actually work, and I can always switch back to the nForce4 driver and use the direct input... Read more
