Still having an issue on resume not connecting to wifi requiring a reboot (and new issue)

Q: Still having an issue on resume not connecting to wifi requiring a reboot (and new issue)

Thinkpad X1 Carbon 4th Signature EditionIntel i7-6600U16GB RAM - 1 TB Windows 10 Home - Ver 1709Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260Driver is Intel v. When connected to wifi, hibernate and move to a different location with different network and routers, I connect to the router with strong signal, but show "No Internet" and I cannot access the internet. Upon awakening I show as connected to the router with strong signal, but it shows as having "No Internet". If I try to swtich to a different router OR channel it connects and still shows as "No Internet" and I cannot access the internet. Must restart. When I restart, I now have to log in twice. It looks like it works the first time, but returns me to log-in screen where I have to log in again, then it works. In all these cases the only thing I can do is reboot the computer and it connects normally. This means 3-4 reboots per day

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.

I just got a Mac (used) computer and hooked it up to my modem and router. Everything was working fine until I installed a new wireless printer (HP Envy 4520). The wifi is now only working through the printer. Other devices in the house show a wifi signal but it's not working. When I run a diagnostics test it says wifi does not have any problems. I'm assuming what has happened is it's locked into just the DNS for the printer because the network wasn't set up correctly to have multiple devices. I know this is a simple fix for someone who understands networking (but that is not me). Any suggestions?

Hi all I just got the following message when trying to connect my HP envy 4527 printer wifi with my macbook pro 2016. Can someone send foolproof instructions on how to fix this / what this means?  Is it something to do with my internet speed/provider? If so, I may not be able to change this as I live in rented accommodation. 'Cannot connect to the network XXX. Your device is not compatible with 5GHZ networks.  Select another network then try again.' Thanks

I have an HP Zbook 14. I have had this laptop for almost a year and never had a problem connecting wireless.
The other day, my laptop froze up and was unresponsive. I rebooted it and noticed immediately a message about a hash mismatch, but the laptop continued to reboot. After coming up, I could no longer connect wireless, even though the light is on. Troubleshooting
efforts keeps saying to enable the wireless switch, which it is on.
I have done numerous tasks, disable then enable, press the wireless button on and off. Currently I am hardwired in and thought if I unplugged the Ethernet cable, it would pick up the wireless but it did not.
Any suggestions or advice?

Hi guys i've got a problem with my toshiba qosmio g20. I've had it running sweet on xp and i recently upgraded it to vista ultimate lite. It for some reason won't read my graphics card geforce 6600. it says the best driver is already installed for you called standard graphics adapter but thats wrong so i can't play games so im gonna put it back to xp but to do that is a mission. this laptop has raid harddrives so I need to install a driver. so i press f8 or whatever it is(can't remember) to enter the menu thing (this is at the blue screen before you enter the partition menu) it comes up with something like "please enter you manufactuers disk into the A:" but i don't have a floppydrive built in to be able. i've tryed usb floppydrivebut it doesn't read as A: so can use on of them. I've heard about useing nlite to put the drivers in a cd with the rebootstuff but i can't getit to read the drivers too. it was easy enough going to vista as you could insert a flash drive with drivers on it.

Please help me fix this or ill have to take it into a shop and pay them.

I have a Dell Inspiron running Win 7 Home 64 bit. Previously, it would require entering a password after it had gone into sleep mode. I found the settings that should cause it to do so, and they were set properly, still the machine is not requiring a password upon waking.

It still requires a password after a reboot.

Would appreciate any help.

Hi everyone.

I had some trouble today with my computer. I seem to have fixed it, but thought I would share my experience to see if I can help others who may be having similar issues.

System Specifications

AMD FX-6300
4 GB 1333 mhz GSkill RAM
NVIDIA Geforce GT 630
320 GB HDD
600w Modular Ultra X3 Power supply
Thermaltake Versa H25 Gaming Case
Windows 10 PRO 10240

For 2 weeks or so I was having an issue where my system would not wake from sleep properly. Fans would spin and HDD would power up, but no video, or if video came on, it would be at the lock screen, and screen would shut off. Had to do a hard reset to get the computer to boot.

I had noticed as the computer tried to resume from sleep mode, the CPU LED would not blink, indicating that the CPU has reinitialized. Strange since that never happen before. Although I do remember I removed my CPU to test in another FX Board to see if the other board was DOA. It was and I reinstalled it in my system.

I decided to recheck everything today. "CPU, Memory, SATA Cables, etc." I reseated the memory, saw no change. Took the heatsink off of the CPU, which came off easy, and behold, I see a tiny gap, where my CPU was not fully seated. No bent pins. I'm surprised my system was even booting or running. I reinserted the CPU, fully seated it and put it back together, checked the SATA Cables, and found that one of my SATA Cables was slanted on my backup hard drive. Pu... Read more

A:Resume from sleep issue

I would say this has something to do with the drivers or the bios. my friend is having the same issue and i had it before i updated the bios.

if there is something to do with the bios you could check the motherboard manufactures website to see if there is an new update for the bios. These things can also come with windows updates and if the windows version is changing something in the power management it can also effect the bios in one way so there must be an update for the bios for this to be fixed.

Here is the link to the Asus page for bios and drivers: M5A99FX PRO R2.0 | Motherboards | ASUS USA

if there is anything in the OS that have changed i would consider you to either check some power option or try to reinstall a fresh version of windows to see if that would help.

I've ran into an issue recently that makes resuming from hibernation impossible. When I go into hibernation and then try to resume, windows begins to load but the loading icon below the windows 8 symbol is laggy and glitchy. After sitting for about 5 minutes it doesnt resume and I have to power it off. I've also noticed that when starting up that the loading animation doesnt even appear, but it will still boot. Any idea how to fix this?
I'm trying to defrag and see if it fixes it, if not I'm gonna put in the windows 8 CD and try to repair the system. This all started after I ran Advanced System Care Pro. Its not a virus because I have the paid version and have used it in windows 7 perfectly. Its obviously not compatible with windows 8 even though it says so. I've also tried a system restore to the time before I installed it.

A:Windows 8 Hibernation Resume Issue

I find that hibernation isn't working very well here either. It does come back up but it loses context with some of my USB devices and seems to "re-install" the drivers. Then it wants me to do a restart. Nuts to that.

Sleep mode works fine but not hibernation. Until they fix it, just go into the advanced power settings and set the sleep timers to 1440 minutes (24 hours). That way your machine will sleep but not drop into hibernation unless you leave it sleeping for a whole day. If I'm going to leave it for that long I shut it down anyway.

Hey all,
I am having a issue with my ASUS F5GL laptop. Everytime I resume from a hibernation, I have to first flick the WLAN switch to on, leave it for about 3 secs, then flick it back to on, then use the hotkey to switch it off, then to switch it on otherwise my network connection is displayed "Unidentified Network" and Windows will not find any WLAN acces pointss, even when I sit right next to one. Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just my laptop?

I have an issue that whenever my Desktop PC resumes from sleep the CPU fans will only spin up to c. 1000rpm leading to a CPU temp of c. 70C.

Whenever I do a clean boot, restart or resume from hibernate the CPU fans spin up to c. 1500 rpm leading to a CPU temp of c. 57C.

Now I know some will say even 57C is too high, but my CPU has a max temp of 63C & I don't get any issues at this temp.

So why when I resume from sleep are the fans not controlled properly? Is this a BIOS issue- cannot see any relevant settings to change? Is there some Advanced Power Management setting I need to change- I cannot find anything. ACPI fan driver issues? I have tried SpeedFan but I have the same issue (BTW Speedfan with all fans at 100% [noisy] leads to a CPU Temp of c 47C). I'm at a loss really. I would like to use sleep rather than shutdown or hibernate.

We recently started purchasing Elitebook 820 G1 laptops for staff and have come across a sleep issue that is being reported by most users that have these laptops. The issue is that the laptops at random times do not resume from sleep mode. Sometimes the users will close the lid on the laptop to head to a meeting on a different floor. When they get there and open the lid and press on the power button the laptop will not resume from sleep. The laptop's power button, wireless button, and speaker button are all lit up solid. Pressing the keyboard will light up all the keyboard's backlights. However, regardless of what one tries to do nothing will get the laptop to resume from sleep mode. Pressing the power button, closing and opening the lid, pressing the keyboard, pressing the touchpad, etc, nothing works in getting the laptop out of sleep mode. We end up having to hold down the power button for several seconds to fully power off the laptop and force a BIOS power cycle. We have also experienced the problem while the laptop is docked to the HP 2013 Ultraslim Docking Station. We have applied the following HP drivers to all these laptops which has not resolved the issue.sp68391 Video driver Version: 3621 Rev.

Hello everyone,

I'm really hoping someone can help me here, or it means I will have to finance and whole brand new computer to replace the one i've had for less than a year. :(

Heres the problems...

Whilst using my PC my machine seemed to go into hibernate mode randomly... whilst i was using it. (I dont have any keyboard shortcuts set to hibernate.)
However when I kept rebooting it from Hibernate it kept going back into hibernate again.

So I waited till it was booted up for a split second then tried to force shutdown while holding the power button for 10seconds... after 5 seconds it went into hibernate again.

I then powered it up, but this time i was presented with a Windows Resume Loader screen.

This is the issue, I cannot select anything my keyboard is unresponsivie...
I looked at some forums for solutions, and found that i could plug in a ps/2 keyboard, alas my motherboard does not have any of those ports, only USB.

I then read that removing the CMOS battery might work.
I did this and left it out 5mins. I booted up, and got a message that the Default Bios Settings had been loaded.

I accepted with my keyboard and proceeded... I was again presented with this Windows Resume Loader screen and my keyboard yet again is unresponsive.

I then read that moving the CMOS PW pin on the Motherboard could solve this, so I attempted this to no success...

I'm really stuck as to what to do.

I am having a problem with vista and my soundcard. When I resume from hibernation/suspend my sound is there but any sound that comes out of it static/crackle noises. Has anyone else had this issue or have a fix for it?

A:Realtek ALC268 suspen/hibernation resume issue

Just completed a new build using a gigabyte motherboard with Realtek onboard audio. Same problem - after hibernate and resume, sound is distorted - only in the center/sub channel (using 5.1 analog speakers). Even when muted, distorted sound comes thru that port (when playing music, etc). I pulled the plug on that channel since we keep sounds muted for the most part. After a clean boot, sound is fine.

Don't know if its Vista 64, Realtek, or Gigabyte. Tried a 2nd mobo and it had the same problem. Probably Vista or Realtek.

Hey guys,
I am having two issues with my laptop.
1.  When my laptop is running on battery (no matter which power option I choose) the screen will go black or flicker if I stop moving my mouse.  The moment I move it goes back to being fine but if I let go it flickers.
2.  When I put my computer to sleep and then turn it back on later, the wireless card just stops working.  I get a red x on the wifi icon in my toolbar and it will not show any networks, even if I  Disable/Re-enable the wireless card.
I have already deleted the graphic card drivers and wireless drivers and reinstalled. My laptop is has a dedicated graphic card but it also uses the onboard graphic card.  Let me know if you have any other questions.

Dear helpful people,

I've got a problem with my Windows 7 Sony Vaio PCV A1112m.

Following 'hibernation', which seems to be the sony word for sleep mode, the computer will no long boot up. I get as far as the 'Windows Resume Loader' but no further. Keyboard and mouse non-functional as they are both wireless, usb keyboard attempted and same thing. Can't enter bios to re-activate keyboard as I can't type F9.

Being an all-in-one, I can't seem to do anything, no form of input available to me. And I have no PS/2 slot to try old-school keyboard either.

Is there anything I can do?

I would be very grateful for your help. I have seen on other forums that this is a persisting issue within the Windows 7 communities, but have yet to find a solution.

Thank you kindly.

I upgraded my friends HP laptop to Windows 10. The issue now is I can't enable Wifi. The card is recognized correctly in Device manager and no issues is found with it. It looks like it is fine. However in the Network Settings WLAN is set to "Off" and when I try to turn it on it always jumps right back to off. eg. I can't enable it.

HP is now help as they clearly state any laptop bought prior to specific date in 2013 will not get any driver updates from their side for windows 10. (Guys, never buy HP again please...). And updating through device manager only tells me it's the newest driver available.

The Wifi card i Broadcom 4313GN card. I searched for win 10 drivers but did not find anything.They only offer linux drivers on their homepage...

So can anyone either provide a solution to the issue or link to a win 1' driver for this wifi card?

I have issues connecting my Laptop to the Wifi router in my house, however, there are no issues connecting to other routers? You would therefore assume that the issue lies with the router at my house. However, every other device and laptop connects to the router at my house with no issues at all. So it seems to be specific to the combination of my laptop and the router at my house. I have been having these issues ever since I downloaded Windows 10. I fixed it initially by downloading an old driver for the Wifi on my laptop. This fix lasted for about 3 months but since the latest windows update, the issue has come back. The issue is intermittent wifi where it shows I am connected to the Wifi but then the internet doesn't work. It says "DNS probe cannot be found" when running troubleshooter and then it resets the wifi on my laptop. This can temporalily fix it, sometimes for 2 seconds. Sometimes for 2 hours. But then the issue comes back. Does anyone have any clue what the issue might be or how I might fix it? Sometimes, when I run the troubleshooter, it says that I have missing protocols. But then this doesn't happen every time. I have tried a variety of fixes that I have read up on in forums but none seem to work permantly. One thing I haven't tried is a clean install of windows 10 which is something I am very reluctant to do and also, have my doubts as to whether it would actually resolve the issue.
Many thanks,

A:Wifi issue specific to my laptop and home wifi

It all depends on location, location, location. Some Gateways are just garbage. If you are not getting a strong enough signal, get an Access Point. Also you need to make sure that you are not on a congested channel, which is usually Channels 6 & 11 for 2.4 Ghz units.

My system freezes several times a day requiring a reboot. My OS is XP SP2, fully AV'd and fire-walled with anti spyware software installed and updated, so the freezes are unlinked to any issue there I think.

Last software I installed was for a new wireless router and adapter which was compatible with my ADSL2+ broadband service (8MB), the previous wasn't.

The freezes can happen when I'm browsing the internet (which is mostly what I use the PC for) or even simply when left unattended.

I want to be able to try to identify what the source is before I attempt a complete software re-install of XP and everything else.

Is there a system log or something that XP keeps on my PC that someone here would be able decipher if I posted?

thanks in advance

Hi all please bear with me and I'll explain where I've got to.
Am getting random hangs, usually when gaming, can go 3 or 4 days without one, then can have two within an hour.
But Yesterday for example, it hung when I was simply browsing a txt file.
Most of the time it's hung, I have had to hit the reset button. However, twice it came up with the error
Clock_Watchdog_timeout_error and started to make a dmp file.
The last time this happened I was in an online group battle with friends, and stupidly hit the reset button to speed things up but I see there is a memory.dmp dated 3rd August  that's 1.16GB, whether that was the one I interrupted, or whether that's the complete one, I'm sorry, can't remember.
I was overclocking the Intel Core i7 3820 a2011  to 4676 MHz (using Asus's MB software), but am now running on default BIOS settings and still having the same problem.
I have a Antec 1200 case which has 3 fans in the front, 2 on the back and a huge one at the top, all regularly cleaned, and the CPU has 
an "Archon SB-E X2 CPU Cooler" on it.
I have AID64 and it displays temps etc on my second monitor, the temps are all well within limit, I wrote them down last time it hung while the processor was overclocked,

I've started recently having issues with my Asus laptop (model x550c). It all began with couple of BSOD, that were referring to hardware error, but as they occurred when I witched WIFI I figured it was driver related, re-installed driver, and they went away.

Fast forward a few days, now computer just randomly (what I can see) freezes, with image and everything left, and nothing happens till I reboot by taking battery out (I can't move mouse, or do anything at all). I've also had issues starting PC up from the win8 hybrid shutdown, with nothing but black screen greeting me leading to same battery reboot.

Memtest seemingly came back okay (although I'll let it turn bit longer once I'm home), drivers seems up to date, no new software been installed recently, antivirus scan came back clean. Nothing seems abnormal with GPU/CPU load or temp. Chkdsk fixed some minor issues after first bsod, but freezes continued.

I am attaching the last minidump file, that seems to be pointing at hal.dll as cause, as well as the SF info. However, I can't save event viewer logs however, as it gives "The specified channel could not be found" error, so I had to manually export all critical and errors events in three separate files you can find in the events archive.

Any tips on how I should approach troubleshooting this, or what may be the cause are greatly appreciated.

A:Random freeze requiring reboot, win 8.1


0x124 hardware stops. As you already know, that means hal.

Uninstall Avast, reboot, then use their removal tool to remove remnants. Set Windows Firewall and Windows Defender to Automatic and start them too.
Make sure there is no overclocking. Monitor temps to ensure within spec, clean fans if necessary. Update bios to newest. Use CPU-Z to compare Memory tab to SPD tab, to see if memory is set well.

Update these if possible:

This is not a blue screen crash. My laptop simply freezes and nothing works requiring a reboot.

One characteristic is that once the computer has been rebooted the problem won't occur again during the same day.

Further, I consistently use Hibernate rather than Shut Down, and this problem may not occur for several days if I hibernate it every night. Eventually it will freeze after being reopened from Hibernate.

However, if I do shut it down at night and boot it in the morning it always seems to freeze within the first 15 minutes of being booted. Again once rebooted it won't happen again until the next day.

I would appreciate any input someone can offer on this since it is annoying and time consuming.

Hey, I recently put together a PC and I've been having problems with it since. When I initially built it, the specs were:

i7 920 2.67GHz
Asus p6t Motherboard
8gb RAM
500gb Sata II HD
ATI Radeon HD 3870x2 (the card with with 2 GPU's)
500W unbranded PSU
1 added 120m coolermaster fan

Shortly after I started using my PC there was a power surge that knocked the power supply out. I recently got a new power supply. A 650W Silverstone PSU that I thought was more than enough for this. The problem that would occur now is that the computer would restart during games and sometimes while processing/rendering videos in adobe premiere.

When I would enable the 'crossfire' option on my card (to enable both GPU's to work) the computer would no longer just 'restart' the entire screen would hang or the colours would go out of sync shortly after which I'd have to restart the computer. This having happened I assumed the problem was with the graphics card, not the new 650W silverstone I got. I upgraded to a newer card; Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX460 768mb. The specs are now as follows:

i7 920 2.67GHz
Asus p6t Motherboard
8gb RAM
500gb Sata II HD
Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX460 768mb
650W silverstone PSU
1 added 120m coolermaster fan

After upgrading, games like modern warfare 2 will restart in missions that has a lot of smoke, during a standard windows assessment process the computer will also restart.

There is no overheating issue, the te... Read more

A:PC restart during graphic-intensive tasks. PSU issue? GPU issue? Mobo issue?

You've got Asus motherboard, hence the first thing I'll look at considering the issues you are having, is at RAM settings/voltage in the board's BIOS, these should be exactly the same as on RAM packaging, but even that doesn't guarantee that it may not be the issue, so basically you'll need to fiddle around a bit with settings/voltage in case default specs doesn't work.

You may also consider stress testing your graphic card using OCCT (including vRam). Regards

My Dell computer, mainly used for internet, the occasional Excel app, and maintain a very amateur website (CoffeeCup) has very slow. The slowness and freezing seemed to start when my child began playing more web-based games.

I ran a HijackThis and got these results. I run AVG and Spybot Search and Destroy on the pc, but loaded them after the problems began. Any guidance, especially on programs I can wipe out, would be greatly appreciated.

As the title says, I'm experiencing random crashes in the form of freezing. No BSOD, no power down or reset, just an unrecoverable freeze.
The computer is a relatively new build (3-4 months old), and this has been happening the entire time.
This occurs during gaming, Installation of software, and various other instances.
Memtest showed nothing, so the RAM is probably fine.


Please let me know if you need any other information, thank you

I have a P/C, somewhat old Pentium 2 system, that someone gave me. Of course freebies always come with a catch. This P/C keeps reboorting itself, starts up, starts to boot, then restarts itslef, over, and over, again. Any ideas?? I took it to one tech bench, and they told me it would cost me a lot of money to figure out, since it could be anything from the power supply, to the board itself. Anyone got a clue on thsi ghost in the machine? Please help!!


A:reboot issue

Well, step 1 is to find out if it is the OS causing it.

Try booting from floppy and see if that works.

Then try booting in Safe Mode.

Let us know.

I have been working on a very important final for class for the last 7 hours. Unfortunately, I was using a library computer instead of my own.

All at once, the computer screen went blank and it rebooted itself, without any provoking on my part. Though I had been saving frequently to the hard drive, the document was still lost.

These computers run under a feature that all information is deleted upon reboot or log out. I'm having trouble accepting this answer, maybe only because of how hard I've been working on this final.

Is there any way to recover my document (MS Word)? Any help would be appreciated beyond anything you can imagine. Otherwise, I think I may just be screwed...

Thanks so much to everyone who replies.


A:help please! reboot issue

Hello Bryan, Welcome to TSF!

Unfortunately, Windows? being Windows? all your work is lost when it reboots, if the work has not been saved.

Sorry that there is no better news for you.
Having said that, if you had saved the Word .doc at any stage, that work ought to be recoverable from the folder/file that it was saved to.

Hope this answers your query.

Kind Regards,

I use Windows XP Pro on all of the new terminals that I add to our network. The computers are all built from good quality, branded parts. On one machine, it will once a day decide, without any request, to reboot for no obvious reason at all. Do you think that this is a Windows XP problem or a hardware issue? Where should I start looking? This wasn't a problem when first using this computer.

A:Reboot issue

If you manage to catch the screen before the reboot and the reboot warning is 60 seconds then you got a virus in it. The XP will updates will cure it.

I recently built a new computer for gaming (specs posted below) but it freezes completely while I play any game (Specifically Skyrim or Borderlands 2), requiring a system restart by holding the power button. I've tried everything I can think of. All my drivers are up to date, I've tweaked graphics settings both basic and advanced (such as setting the affinity of the games to just 2 cores, as I have seen suggested online, as well as adjusting the 3D settings in the NVIDIA control panel). I've run memtest86 and the memtest that is on the Windows 7 disc. Reformatted and reinstalled fresh Win 7. System temps are well within limits. There are other things I've tried that I can't think of at the moment, but I've spent a week troubleshooting this problem with zero luck.

Both memtests came back clean, by the way. 0 errors. I have also run a chkdsk /r, will post the log if it will help any.

If anyone can help me solve this, I would be so grateful!

Are you using the original fan that came with that chip. If so use HW Monitor to check the CPU temperature I think you will find its not cooling the chip enough.

For the past couple of months my PC has had quite a few hangs which require hard reboots to get it working again.  Generally, but not always, this seems to happen when I am downloading a large file -- both through my browser and more frequently when using a download manager such as Jdownloader.

Info about my PC is below:
-- Windows 7 -- originally pre-installed
-- X64 operating system

-- Age of OS: 2012

-- Power supply -- not sure how to determine this
-- System Manufacturer: Dell

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have been having an issue networking two pcs: a laptop running Vista Home Premium and a desktop running XP Home Edition (2002). Both are connected with a crossover cable.

Things are mostly functional... the laptop recognizes and allows access to the shared desktop drives.
The issue is this:
On the desktop (XP), when I select
Start --- My Network Place --- Entire Network --- Microsoft Windows Network --- (Workgroup name) --- (name of Vista machine),
a dialog box pops up prompting me for a username and password.

Does anyone know how to disable this box?

Thanks very much,

Ok, my system is acting up pretty badly lately, on random intervals the computer will simply shut down and reboot without prompting, upon comming back up it sometimes displays a "Windows has recovered from a major error" and prompts me for sending this information to microsoft, what it displays once I've sent the data is that it is supposedly a Driver conflict and that there is no solution at this time, in addition to this, now using IE I cannot type anything into the web address area or it will freeze, and using firefox I cannot save files, images, or view video, also it occasionally will not allow me to send data, such as posting in a forum. I do realize that I have plenty of spyware and this will probably take some major time to fix, but I would appreciate the assistance.
