My USB isnt working with my laptop, but at school it works fine...

Q: My USB isnt working with my laptop, but at school it works fine...

When i plug in my memory stick at home and click on computer and on removable disk, it doesnt want to show me my files. The program quits responding and I have to take out my memory stick. Sometimes, it will show me my files but it won't let me access them. It will take forever to act like its loading and then it won't and "Computer" says it is not responding. Is it my device? I bought it Windows Vista compatible. I dont understand why I cant get to my files. After removing the stick so my computer will go back to being responsive, the program "My computer" will not recognize the device again. I have tried all my USB ports, they do the same thing. I have restarted my computer and it does the same thing. I need help!!!

>>>To Blind Dragon. I have no pop ups. I also use Norton Firewall Security.

>>>To jobeard, Windows Vista fails to uninstall USB devices on my computer. Also, when the program "My computer" freezes up, u cant do anything unless u remove the USB first bc it glitches the computer.

Preferred Solution: My USB isnt working with my laptop, but at school it works fine...

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.)

A: My USB isnt working with my laptop, but at school it works fine...

Obviously its not the device. It has something to do with your computer.

When you plug in the device just let it sit for a minute, vista should go and get the proper drivers/firmware for the device.

Watch you tray in the bottom right hand side of the screen. Does a box pop up when you plug in the device.

Do you have a firewall installed if so which one?

The problem is that my CPU (I5-3320M) is in the lowest potential, I dont know why exactly, when I run a test or a benchmark it is locked on multiplier x12 when the maximum multiplier is x33 and the lower x12, so it are running in the lowest power, my notebook has an spoiled battery so I use the notebook always connected but I dont think that the problem is for that, I tried to change some settings intro te BIOS but nothing changed for now

I've been doing some online gaming (world of warcraft), and I kept getting these Error#131 issues. This would cause the game files to become corrupted and then I would have to repair, or reinstall. The WoW tech site says that chronic error #131 messages are either a Hard drive, Ram, or Motherboard issue.

Running the Windows Vista memory diagnostic tool has turned up some odd results, the initial test with a 1gb stick in slot #1 and a 1gb stick in slot #2 came back with errors. I then removed the ram from slot 2 and ran the test on slot 1 with 1 stick of ram.... no errors. I did the same with the other stick in slot 1.....no errors. this lead me to believe that it was slot#2 giving me the issue so I moved the ram from slot 2 to slot 3, thus having 1gb of ram in slot 1 and 1gb of ram in slot 3. After a little while......error#131 appeared.

So I then tested both sticks in slots 1 and 3 together and came back with ram errors, I then tested both sticks in slot #1, and then again in slot #2 and both tests came back fine. Any ideas on what this issue could be? I know both sticks are the same brand, speed, totally identical.

A:Ram Works fine in single sticks, not working fine together :P

Ok, my router decided to break, so we went and got a replacement... now Maplestory wont work, nor will mapleglobal.com, yet it works for everyone else...

However, maplesea.com works, BUT when trying to load maple story [maplesea version] it lets me load it, but when im trying to connect to a channel, it connects for ages, then gives me an error.
Im wondering if its a router misconfiguration [its the same router as i had previously]

can anyone shed any light on my annoying problem?

A:Little confusion maplestory and website isnt working for me [but works for others]

I am having a really difficult problem at the moment...
I am an IT Tech and all our pc's work fine on the network AND Internet.
I have a clients laptop with me, it works perfectly on the network but NO internet what so ever. I done numerous virus scans, Malware removal etc but with no luck sorting the problem.

Also, if it helps, when I try to repair the wireless connection "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the followng action cannot be completed: Disabling wireless adapter" also previously, same error message but something about the DNS when repairing the wireless connection. the drivers are up to date. Realtek RTL8187. I have configured it manually including the correct DNS.

Also if i try to disable programs to run on startup through msconfig while in the Administrator account it tells me i do not have administrative rights, even though the account does.

Need to get this sorted asap, without a format.

Recently got some nostalgia and wanted to play AOE. I have the original, the expansion pack, and AOE2 age of kings.
The original AOE and the expansion installed, loads, and runs flawlessly, I didn't have to do anything special.

AOE2 however is giving me trouble.
I click to launch the game, the disc whirs in the drive, and then stops. No load screen, no error messages, nothing.

What I've tried-
Running it in every compatibility mode option there is, as an administrator, tried changing color resolution, tried a clean boot startup, nothing has produced any change.

What's going on here?
It's frustrating that the original works fine, yet this one does not.
I understand it's available on steam, but I own the discs, I don't want to pay $20 for something I already own.

We have asp.net website on which we have used various JQueries. We are facing rather unusual problem in IE 9. 
For e.g-
When the page is loaded, on click of Jquery datepicker, calendar is not poped up, but when I press F12 and then refresh the page, the datepicker calendar is popup and I am able to select the date.
The problem resurfaces again if the browser is closed and open again.
We have this issue for datepicker, DataPagercontrol and phone masking Textboxs.
The Jquery version we are using is 1.8.9 which is then again updated to 1.12.1, but the problem still persists.

Firefox 3.02 stopped working. I upgraded to 3.03, then tried a clean reinstall, then tried going back to Firefox 2. Tried running Firefox in Safe Mode. Also disabled Norton, and Windows Firewall. Also tried uninstalling Windows SP3. Nothing worked! IE and Outlook Express work fine. Before this happened I uninstalled the free Norton Corporate Edition which came with my new computer and installed my university's Symantec Antivirus I read somewhere that Norton uninstall can cause this problem, but don't know what to do.

I'm working off the same wireless network for both, I have had the Vista computer for about a year, and the internet as worked relatively well until about two days ago. The problem existed before I installed SP1 and has persisted after the install.

Can somone work with me on this to figure out what the problem is? Thanks.

My 6-month-old laptop, which is in the exact same room as my computer (bedroom), can load a webpage almost instantly and download 20mb files in around seven seconds whereas my one-month-old computer takes 15 - 20 seconds to load a webpage and half an hour to download a 20mb file.

So I have 2 laptops, a win 7 and a win 8,
The windows 7 laptop works on the internet fine, but the windows 8 one always disconnects, even when the win 7 isn't on.
It disconnects usually when I'm running multiple programs that use the internet on it, but when I run a game like counter-strike, it disconnects too, but not nearly as often.

The router is from 2008 or 2009, but it's a tiny aztech one. I'm sure it's not the isp, because like I said, the other laptop works fine.

So this happened before. I bring my computer over to a friends house for a couple days, then when bringing it back to my house and hooking it back up the mic does not want to work with skype or any program that records.

Had this happen last week then it just fixed itself. As of right now everything is plugged in the right spot, all the checks and green bars move when i talk into it in the windows settings. Even when I go to monitor mic option i can hear fine, it is working.

Just for some reason it is not working with any chat program. It is not working in skype, steam, and windows recording. WTF is going on here

A:Mic stopped working with programs, works fine with monitor check?!

Check that the device the mic is currently plugged into is set as the default device:

The level indicator and monitoring functions will still work for non default devices, but only the default device will be used with applications (unless the applications themselves have the option to override this).

Hello, I am new here. I have an HP Pavilion entertainment laptop. Everything was functioning just fine. Then, windows update happened. It was a critical update that cannot be undone. I performed the update. Immediately after all of the preinstaled HP software quit working. I fought and fought and I have most of it working again but all of it is very buggy and crashes a lot. HP Help and support and HP health no longer work. I had to install the vista versions and I run them in compatibility mode. They still don't work rite. Another critical update was released and then my internet port on the side stopped working. My laptop cannot connect to the internet through it but will via wireless. In the hardware manager my internet card shows up as the driver failing to load. It is Realtek PCB family controller. Uninstalls and re installs don't work. I even used a registry cleaner (registry first aid) to uninstall it so as to remove all the registry keys. Letting windows try to install the driver fails as does letting the realtek software try. Also, every reinstall just adds a number to the end of it. I am on Realtek (3) now. I need to get this driver to work but it will not. I am not seeing a whole lot about it so I guess this isn't a common problem. Everything else I have works fine so far as I can tell. I also tried using the file browser to hunt down all things realtek related and delete them. Windows just gives me the new hardware box, puts back what I del... Read more

I would not compare windows 7 with a bootable cdrom with Ubuntu.

What you need to do is to properly fill out your system specifications so that everyone here who helps will have some idea of what your configuration is. then running some diagnostics so that it can be determined what exactly is going wrong with your windows 7 installation.

A:Laptop hangs but works fine on safe mode

Could try running MSCONFIG in safe-mode, de-select start-up applications & non-windows services (selective startup) and see if that gets you past the lock-up issue. That would at least help identify if its a possible software / service issue on load.

Additional information, if disabling everything appears to fix the lock-up issue, then its simply a matter of process of elimination. Re-enable services & programs one at a time, and see if you can determine which program is causing explorer / desktop to hang.

Hey Guys, Im DIEING HERE, Heres the deal: I did a full reformatted to my HP laptop dv6700 (specs below) from a Downgraded XP Home OS (bought it originally running Vista) to a currently Windows 7 Ultimate. I connect my laptop to my toshiba tv via a VGA cord. Now my laptop screen for some messed up reason is no longer displaying. But when it is connected via VGA i can use the computer just fine using my TV as my only screen. The problem is I cannot get the laptop to display. After multiple shutdowns and force restarts, and after leaving the laptop for a decent period of time i turn it on and it will random again display on my laptop, I have concluded from this that it is less likely a hardware problem and more likely a software one. I have the correct latest driver from nvidia. Another noteworthy point is that the Toshiba is only screen recgonized when i am in the screen resolution menu.

Earlier my desktop was to b in d same place where the router was der. Everything worked fine. Now I decided to shift my desktop to another room. I have kept the router at the earlier place only. I have brought a 25m long new cat 5 cable. When I connected it to my desktop, the orange led on ethernet port do not light up and the desktop is unable to detect the ethernet cable and hence the internet connection. On the router, a light of ethernet keeps on blinking every 1 second. I was worried whether my ethernet port got fried. So i inserted another ethernet cable, but then the ethernet orange light came and the pc detedted the connection. Therefore I thought the cable might be faulty. Therefore I connected my laptop with that 25m cable. But my laptop detected it and showed the internet connection. But now when i again connect the cable to my desktop, there's no light and the pc does not detect it. However, if i connect the 25m cable to my desktop then during boot the ethernet light on router is stable just as when it is normally connected to the internet. But when i go into windows it starts blinking every 1 second.

My router is MTNL Model No. UT-304R2

I have a new 3G router which I am trying to connect to an all-in-one PC-LCD monitor (for digital signage) via LAN. The PC is running XP-embedded.

The problem is that I can't see the router from the PC. I have plugged it in, connected it via LAN and set the Local Area Connection to Obtain IP automatically and DNS automatically.

However I get limited or no connectivity and clicking repair says it cannot renew IP address. If I do ipconfig, there is no default gateway showing.

Therefore if I go to IE and type 192.168.01 which is what the IP should be, it can't find anything.

It isn't to do with the 3G network, because I can't even access the router config page, before even thinking about getting to the outside world.

It doesn't seem to be the LAN connection/wiring because the LAN light on the router flickers when the PC is trying to get an IP, so it is connecting ok.

It also doesn't appear to be an issue which resetting the router would solve, since I just unplugged it and plugged it into my laptop LAN and as soon as I typed 192.168.01 into IE, it works fine on my laptop.

Any suggestions most welcome as I am stumped...

Hello, as i stated in subject i own lenovo v330 laptop. Last month i spilled beer over keyboard and everything worked fine for 2 weeks. After two months display stopped working, but when i connect laptop via HDMI to the TV i can see desptop just fine. I would also note that under very bright light i can see what is going on on laptop's display, but the screen is very indistinct. My question is,  is there any simple solution to my problem? Is there any specific place where i should take a look inside laptop to figure out if my laptop is still repairable? If not, would it be possible to change motherboard? Is that someting i could be able to achive with minimal skills when it comes to such repairs ?

Hi daproof,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
You may need to replace the LCD panel.
You can check on the hardware manual (here on page 63) if you have the tools and skills to change it. You can get the LCD OEM part number here to check online or on service parts center to purchase.
Here is the article guide that can also help.
How to Look Up and Purchase Accessories, Upgrades, and FRU/CRU Replacement Parts
At this point, it is likely a failed lcd backlight as image still is visible onscreen when illuminated but you can try to reseat cables first and check areas you can clean but setting expectation for LCD panel replacement.
I hope this helps answer your query.

I have a Lenovo W500 thinkpad laptop that I had to replace the hard drive on and I tried reloading xp Pro with the recovery cd's but it keeps giving me a stop error message and so I tried another hard drive same thing but it will let me load ubuntu 9.04 and 10.14 on both hard drives but it won't windows XP. Does anyone have any ideas?

A:can't load window XP but ubuntu works fine on Lenovo laptop

Hi and welcome to TSF

Not all "recovery" disks contain a full operating system, they merely access a
hidden partition on the original hard drive.

I recently reinstalled BF1942 on my Windows 7 64-bit laptop, and to my dismay, the game doesn't start up anymore! It used to work fine on my laptop, until I installed a mod on it (with which the game ran fine) and altogether decided it was just cluttering my computer and uninstalled it.

Another whammy is that I installed the game on my other PC with the same OS, and just runs perfect! Except that computer is a shared one so I can't adopt it 24/7.

When I put the disk in, or otherwise click the icon, the disk drive makes a series of short staccato noises (unusual, i might say), and then the screen goes dark, as if the game is starting up, but then the screen changes in varying shades of black, and I'm reverted to my desktop again!

I reinstalled it a couple of times, but the same thing happens, and at first when i wanted to install or uninstall or play the game (after the problem) Avast would suggest I do this in a sandbox, yet I've installed this game on so many computers that I know there could not be a threat with the game itself!

Can you guys please help me? I really want to play this game again.


A:Battlefield 1942 won't start up in laptop, yet works fine on another computer?

Is the other computer 32-bit or 64-bit? The tempature could easily be getting hot. I'd reccomend getting SpeedFan HERE to check

Recently I performed a reinstallation of windows on my laptop. Normally I had no problems with the wireless, but after the reinstallation my laptop refuses to acknowledge that there are wireless networks. When I'm not connected to the internet, it asks to connect using a wire connection only.

I have a Dell Inspiron iM101z running Windows 7 Home Premium, and I downloaded all the drivers for what the Dell website told me my laptop model was, a Dell Inspiron 1121. Attached is a picture showing the oddities of my problem. The icon on the taskbar shows that I have to connect with an ethernet cord; no wireless icon is shown.

If I try to unplug the ethernet cable and connect to the internet, I only get the option to do a broadband connection. Also, once I unplug the cable, I get "no connections available."

A:Laptop refuses to detect anything wireless, ethernet works fine

Most likely this is still a driver problem.

A few days ago my desktop booted up very slowly and I was not able to connect to any webpages or any programs which use the internet. I just left it to sit for a few days and tried to boot it up again today, it still booted rediculously slow (took about 10 minutes) but it's still not working so I figured I'd register here and ask for some help. The router which I have connected to my desktop's modem is used to give internet to my laptop is still working fine (I'm posting this from my laptop). I've tried to do a system restore on my desktop, but the restores get an error and don't work. Also when i do the system restores, my desktop icons wont load so i have to end the explorer.exe process and then run the process again, after which all the icons show. (this only happens after I system restore). Another thing that is weird is that I can still connect to AIM (the instant messanger) on my desktop, but nothing else. Not sure what to do at this point, hopefully you guys can help.

A:Desktop won't connect to internet, laptop using router works fine.

My laptop, a Gateway NV57H, starts up fine, but after 10 minutes or so it becomes incredibly slow and everything is unresponsive. I used to get a bluescreen (kernel_inpage_error) after it being in this state for a while, but I researched it, ran a memory diagnostic, and found out one of my sticks of RAM was fried. Replaced both, doubling the capacity to its limit (8GB) and I still have the problem. When task manager is open during all of this, it shows that I'm only using 1.6 GB of the 8GB of RAM available, so I don't think that's the problem. I ran chkdsk and sfc /scannow from the command prompt, both said there were no errors found on the hard drive. I've ran malwarebytes from safemode a couple of times, it found some trojans and potentially unwanted programs and such that I quarantined and deleted. that didn't seem to fix the problem, and scans now come up clean. I'm running another now, just in case. The laptop runs fine in safe mode, no lag and no errors. I researched some other threads where people had similar problems and they said it was caused by having two antivirus software trying to run at the same time. I have kaspersky, but it's outdated. I turned off windows defender because it was trying to scan, and then started back up and the problem still wasn't fixed. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be and how to fix it? Thanks!

A:Laptop becomes unresponsive after a few minutes, works fine in safe mode

 If you don't have an antivirus program running at all times, you need to fix that ASAP.  Two good free ones are Avast and AVG.  MSE, Microsoft Security Essentials is another free one.  
  To further inspect your system, please download and run Speccy from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/speccy/ .  After running it click File -> Publish snapshot... Copy and paste the link it gives you into your next post.  
Good luck.

I know this topic has been discussed before but none seem to be the same as my situation.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1545.  When turned on I get nothing on my display.  Connecting to an external display works fine.  Here are the current steps I have taken without any results:
1.  Tried the memory swap thing....no display.
2.  Checked fuse on motherboard.  OK
3.  Installed new cable.  No change.
4  Installed 3 known good displays....same part number that was in laptop as original.
5. Installed 2 new good motherboards....no change.
6. This is an LED monitor  so no backlight or inverter.
7. Removed keyboard....pressed on all the "known" areas that people have mentioned on this forum.
Connect is to an external monitor and all is good.  Try the FN key an the F1 no change.....Sure could use some more ideas as I am completely out.

A:Inspiron 1545 no display on laptop, external works fine

This is a bad GPU (yes, they can fail in such a way as an external display works but the internal doesn't) or a bad mainboard - effectively the same thing, since one needs to be replaced to fix the other.

I'm running Windows 7 Enterprise (6.1 bld 7601 sp 1) on a Dell Latitude E7470 laptop at work. I've had this laptop for ~6 months.
For about 2 weeks it has been blue-screening when it's not in the dock, even with no peripherals in use, regardless of location (office or home, etc.). When it's in the dock purrs like a kitten: No crashes, no performance issues, nothing.
Our help desk ran all the diagnostics on it and found no hardware issues. Their recommendation is to set me up with yet another laptop (the current one replaced another bad laptop I got 6 months before that). I would prefer to identify the issue and see
if it can be fixed. It doesn't appear to be related to software, drivers, etc. or settings on the machine. They have looked at the many dumps for clues but nothing shows a clear answer.
No new software or peripherals have been installed during or just prior to this time.

Thank you for any suggestions.

I think the issue is the network name for some reason is NETWORK 3 on my desktop but on my laptop it's something else, my laptop can create a homegroup but my desktop cannot.

It's weird, my desktop cannot create not join my laptop homegroup but my laptop can create it just can't join my desktop so it's a desktop issue and I think it's the multiple network names after you set up a network and it asked you if this is public or home I created like 3 of them since my wifi routers kept on going bad.

A:Compaq 621 laptop works fine but turn off on loading window...

Go into BIOS by tapping F10 as you power up and run the hard drive diagnostic routine and post back the results. The logical answer is you have a bad hard drive.
