Solved: My computer messes it up for everyone else...

Q: Solved: My computer messes it up for everyone else...

How fun. Earlier this week, my state experienced some severe weather which ended with a tree on our street falling and the power going out all day. It took a bit longer after that for our cable services to be restored - internet included. Ever since then, my computer in particular seems to be screwing things up for everyone else. When my computer is shut off, every other computer (one laptop, two desktops) in the house has been able to connect to the internet and maintain that connection all day. However, as soon as mine connects, the connection dies within minutes - for everyone.

I thought it could be an IP conflict but every machine in the house is set to obtain their IP automatically.

Interestingly enough, when the XBOX 360 is bridged through my computer it (the xbox) also maintains a connection, albeit a slower one.

I have spent all day trying to figure out what is going on to no avail. I have reset both the router and modem, including hard resets, and I've pinged and pinged and pinged. The same thing seems to happen regardless of whether I am using a wired or wireless connection. Here's what I have:

Computer model is HP DV6838nr.
Modem is Toshiba DAZ8821F.
Router is Linksys wrt54g v5.
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate.
I am using Firefox but have also tried Opera with the same results.

--
+ Computer has been showing a successful connection in the Network and Sharing Center even when websites fail to load and the connection has gone down for others.

+ When trying to use a wired connection for the first time, the computer could not connected. IT jumped back and forth between "Identifying..." and no connection at all.

+ I reset the router with both wired and wireless connections. With the wireless, it would become functional for a few minutes after being reset and then fail again. With the wired, the router would not broadcast at all. I ended up having to unplug it for a minute and then plug it back in to get it to broadcast again.

+ I tried using my cable with just the modem, but the Data and PC lights failed to light up upon doing this.

+ After all of this, I removed the wired connection and re-enabled my wireless on the laptop. Connection was restored for a few minutes.

+ Despite a successful ping after two minutes, most websites wouldn't load.

+ Switched to a different laptop after turning mine off and was able to maintain a normal internet connection for over an hour.

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: Solved: My computer messes it up for everyone else...

Make sure you have the latest firmware on the router; then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

I installed the Sims 3 on my computer, started it and it crashed. The screen goes blank. My PC far exceeds the recommendations for playing the game. So I updated my graphics driver and installed the latest patch for the game. Still doesn't work. Not wanting to mess up the PC any more than I did, I uninstalled the game. It works on another PC with the same specs. Then I tried to play Fallout 3 on the PC which the Sims didn't work on. Fallout 3 previously worked on the PC on the highest graphics, now it crashes the same way the Sims did. Once again I patched the game and updated the drivers, but still nothing. Please can someone help me.
 

A:Sims 3 messes up my computer, please help

Like you said you updated the drivers. You may need to revert back to your old drivers for Fallout 3. I do know Sims 3 has caused a lot of problems for a lot of people. You should check the Sims 3 Community Forum or contact the Sims 3 Support. I am not a computer whiz but I hope this helps.

For the past few weeks, my computer has been freezing and messes up my monitor screen. When I turn it off by the power button, it goes off instantly. Also my mouse doesn't get messed up, just everything on the screen. I'm sick of my computer doing this, can anyone help me?

Hi, lately whenever my computer does an automatic update, it makes my computer act funny.  The easiest way for me to know is my frequent websites page changes and clicking on it pulls up a new tab instead of staying in the same window.
 
My did a computer restore and it fixed it, but now the updates are coming daily.  It used to be occasionally.  I didn't change it, but I noticed it's now set to daily updates.  Yesterday I turned it off to never do any updates.
 
So I kept doing a computer restore each time it happened, so I was doing it daily.  The daily updates started either June 3rd or June 4th.  The last restore I did started giving me messages that things couldn't be found (dll directory, or something like that).
 
I ran a eset scan, but it didn't show any viruses or infections.  This is getting worse.
Also, the last update made it so that the AntiMalware Bytes couldn't be used.
 
Luckily I had an older restore point and put to that so my computer is working again, but it's just a temporary solution until the automatic update thing gets resolved.
 
This is Windows7 and I use IE.
Please let me know if any other information is needed.
 
Thanks!

Please read these instructions carefully and then print out or copy this page to Notepad in order to assist you when carrying out the fix. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.


If there is anything you don't understand, please ask BEFORE proceeding with the fixes.


Please ensure that you follow the instructions in the order I have them listed.


HijackThis in Temp Folder
You are running HijackThis from a temporary directory. It needs to be in a permanent folder. Please go into Windows Explorer, click on C:\ then click on File > New > Folder and call it HJT , or another name of your choice and move the HJT files to this folder. The program creates backup files that we may need to use later. If the program is in a Temporary folder, files may be deleted by you or automatically if your system is set to empty temp files.



Show Hidden Files
Go to My Computer > Tools > Folder Options > View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System files and Folders are showing / visible. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files option.

I have downloaded AVG Free and updated it to version 8 twice. Both times it slowed down everything and messed up my email. It shows a paper clip symbol for attachments when there are no attachments and receives some of the emails two times. When I log on to the internet it tells me how many new messages I have and it takes a long time to scan and download them. Sometimes it takes up to four minutes just to check for new email. I am on dial up so the internet is slow enough already. Thanks.

It installs okay, but when I reboot my PC, it gets as far as the scrolling graph and stays there. I then Have to do system restore from safe mode.
This makes my Pc work, but then there is no update installed. Is there any way to install this without it messing up my computer?

Over the past week, whenever I boot my computer, my network access is listed as limited or inaccessible (the yellow triangle icon) and thus I have no Internet access (I'm cable connected to a router).

So, when I open Network and Sharing Center (I run Windows 7), I notice that, apart from my home network which is 'Joined', there's also an unidentified public network listed as active, which I'm not connected to. I figure that's the one causing the problem, yet I cannot delete it as it is listed as active. The other computers on the router have wireless connections. Does this mean someone is leeching off my interwebz?

Anyway, I can resolve the problem altogether by disabling and re-enabling my Local Area Connection and I return to just being connected to my home network. What I would like to know is how to get rid of the unidentified public network for good.

Hey everybody

I go to this site: The House Player to listen to an online Christian Station out of Oklahoma.

The site "plays" fine. If I try and stop the player, however, it will not stop. I can't use any of the controls on the player in Firefox. If I open it in Internet Explorer it works great.

Also, I have another online radio station I like to listen to: WCLN which is a local station here. I can listen to it fine in Internet Explorer, but it won't even run in FireFox.

Does it run in any of your Firefox browsers? If so, what options or extensions would help to fix this?

Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Firefox messes up with Online Radio sites

If you really want to use firefox and no updates seem to fix the issue, try using the IE tab extension for firefox. Not sure if this will work, but in theory it should.

And it will stay that way until I manually shut it off. Upon turning it back on, the exact same thing happens. Notice that the messed up screen always looks differently: http://tinypic.com/r/5arg4m/6 (notice the different colors)

However, I can start up in safe mode just fine! No problems whatsoever!

What could be causing this and how can I fix it?
 

A:Solved: Error, Screen messes up on boot but works in safe mode, Win XP

When Windows will only start in Safe Mode, it's typically a sign that you've got a bad third-party driver installed (since they are not loaded in safe Mode) and in your case I would have to say it's the video/graphics driver. In Safe Mode, Windows loads it's own low-res generic video driver, hence no stripes on the screen.

Download the correct video driver from Dell if you don't have a driver CD for your M4300, and install it in Safe Mode.
You can get internet access on your M4300 (to download driver from Dell's website) by invoking the Advanced Startup Options and choosing "Safe Mode with Networking".

I don't know what else to call it.

It's a Canon BJC-250, I've had it 4 years, (this is the 2nd PC it's used with) and it's occasionally done this. Can't seem to pinpoint when and why.

Every now and then, usually in the middle of printing, but then for awhile after when I try and continue it, it only prints a few little meaningless symbols in the upper left corner or along the top, then rolls the paper through.

I go in to the printer (it still shows what's left of the print job, or the new one starting) and cancel it and start again, and it does it again.

Later, the printer seems to work okay again.

I was just printing 8 pages (it usually prints much more, but I don't usually print things that have too many pages) on the last page it stopped. Said there was a problem and did I want to retry or cancel? I kept retrying and pushing the reset on the printer, and it kept printing out the symbols on top.

I cancelled it and highlighted what I had left and tried to print it (selection) which was only 1/2 a page and it kept doing it. I tried copy pasting it in WordPad (instead of WORD2000 where I had it) and it did the same. (WordPad doesn't have so much, and sometimes it works better).

I saved the 8 pages in WORD and probably later will be able to print the last 1/2 page.

But, just wondered once and for all why it does this?

This is WIN 98 SE (the first PC I had with the printer was WIN 98)

I have a guy that used to work at my company install more ram memory on my computer. He said he would also put XP Pro on it...I told him I liked Home but he said I could have both and it would work better and faster for me. He assured me it would do no damage, but it has or maybe just messed things up. I turn on and pick which I want then in Home nothign works...not my favs, not typing a site in go line not clicking on links...I get a message Application not available. I have done a restore to yesterday on it but it didn't help.

Can I uninstall pro and not lose any info and is it easy enough for an old lady that knows little about puters to do?

Is there anyone that I can get to help me or do it for me thru remote assistant? Please help, I am handicapped and work from home online and need my puter working right for me.:

A:XP PRO messes up XP HOME...help.

unless that guy gave you a legal xp pro cd, you have an illegal operating system on your computer. That guy need to be shot if thats the case.

Did he partition a drive to install xp pro? or was it installed on a second drive on your computer? does the nonworking application work in pro? Finally do you have a xp cd or recovery cd for home?

Basically all you need to do is to format the partition/drive that xp pro was installed on to get rid of it - start xp home, go to my computer, highlight and rightclick the drive xp pro is on, then click on format. Finally insert your xp home cd and boot to the recovery console. Once there just type fixmbr and it should take care of your dual boot screen.

While playing Battlefield 2142, my audio on the headset (Cyber Acoustics?) began to mess up

Now I have low sound even at maximum volume, and when I play music it fades in and out, making strange changes. However when I change to balance to one side it works perfectly, and if I do a speaker test it sounds fine. Earlier I listened to my speakers (Realtek) and they were fine, but later on they started to have the same effect.
I temporarily fixed both headset and speakers by rolling back my sound drivers and restarting the computer. But right now only my speakers are good. Now when I play music on my headset, it switches from bad to good quality. I'm not sure if the game had anything to do with it.

So i recently downloaded hamachi on my laptop and my desktop. At first it was working fine and there were no problems. Now the hamachi network connection combines with my network 2Wire707,disables internet access, and makes it local only. When I disable the hamachi network connection, the internet comes back on. This is an on and off thing, sometimes the wireless and hamachi will work with each other but at other times it just doesnt work at all. When it doesnt work, windows offers the solution of rebooting the router, disabling hamachi, or renewing the ip for hamachi. Rebooting works temporarily but the problem eventually occurs again, disabling isnt what im going for, and renewing the ip does absolutely nothing. My wireless connection type is WPA-Personal and my signal is strong. If theres any other information that you need just ask. Thanks!

Intel i7-3770 (not -K) CPU
32GB Kingston Black 1600 RAM

The problem:
I have several different boot disks that can be plugged into the Antec adapter, allowing me to change OSs easily. My data disk (D) is also in an Antec adapter, so that can be changed too. The data disk is formatted in NTFS by Win 7.
 
I started with a fresh disk, and clean installed Win 8.0 when it came out. This was done with the data disk unplugged. I then switched back to the win 7 disk, rebooted, and got on with business as usual. No problems with the Win 8 installation, BTW.
 
A few weeks later I started playing with Win 8. I plugged in the Win 8 disk, leaving the data disk in, and rebooted to start Win 8. I allowed some updates then started the process of integrating the data files on D into Win 8. When this was complete, I shut down and switched the boot disk back to Win 7 to get some work done.
 
Upon restart of Win 7, chkdsk went nuts trying to "fix" the data disk. After about 200,000 errors, I finally gave up and rebuilt the disk. ARGGHHH!

A couple of weeks ago I developed a problem on my computer at work. This all happened after the IT department switched us from Lotus Notes to Outlook for e-mail. Wordís Normal.dot file would reset itself every day so that all my macros disappeared. Iíve had to import my backup copy several times now when all my macros have vanished at startup. After the first week or two, instead of automatically erasing Normal.dot, Word started giving me a message when I start it that thereís a problem and do I want to create a new Normal.dot, to which I say No, and it all seems fine. The IT department doesnít know why this happened nor do they particularly care, which is why Iíve come here for help.

If I start Outlook first, when I open Word I get an error message that somethingís wrong with Normal.dot and do I want to make a new one.

The more I looked around on the net for anything relating to the problem of "Outlook corrupts normal dot" the more information I found on viruses. Have you considered that possibility?

Have you tried deleting the normal.dot you have with all your macros and then running Outlook and then trying Word? If things work correctly doing that, then look to your copy of normal.dot as the culprit rather than Outlook.

It's a place to start, anyway.

You sure it was a MS update blackbeagle? I've never seen that description (Yellow Exclamation) of an MS auto update before.

It could have been an update for Firefox and by cancelling it before finishing you could have corrupted something.

Avast comes with a "Network Performance Scan" or something similar. After running this network check, I lost connection to 192.168.1.1.

About 10 days later my internet died and had to be reset by my internet provider.

I didn't realise avast did this, so after getting my internet back, I unsuspectingly ran that check again.

Presently lost connection to 192.

Finally uninstalled Avast.

Let's see how long before my internet dies.

I have an HP 4310S Pro Book. The original adapter stopped working so I bought a class A adapter to save some money. I left it to charge in the room and when I came back after around 20 minutes, there was smoke and I could smell something burning. I found out that my laptop had stopped working and I couldnít turn it on anymore. When I removed my battery, I found that part of it has melted as well. The following day, I took my laptop to the service center, only to find out that my motherboard was burnt and the only remedy was to replace it.

So I went to the shop where I purchased the class A charger from and explained to them what had happened. I blamed their adapter for being responsible for spoiling my motherboard and asked them to shoulder the expenses. They said that it was a 50-50 scenario, that is, it would either be the adapter that spoiled the laptop or that the laptop spoiled the adapter. They agreed to pay for the repairs if I could produce a report from a service center wherein it specifically says that the adapter was responsible for my laptopís damage. When the service center published their report, they were only able to mention that it was only a possibility that the adapter was responsible here as the adapter wasnít working anymore when it was given to the service center. They said that they could not be 100% sure that the adapter was at fault since they do not have any basis to write that.

Hey guys,

When I type, sometimes, I hit my laptop's touchpad with my thumbs and it moves the mouse cursor and messes up my typing. I was wondering if these was a way to disable the touchpad whenever I have a USB mouse plugged in.

Thanks!

Howdy joshjpang...

I don't know which laptop you have or if the BIOS supports disabling the touchpad or putting it in Auto mode, but you could do what I do sometimes and just tape a buisness card or piece of cardboard over the touch pad while using the USB Mouse...

Just a thought...

Since last year, every time I install all of the windows updates, my laptop will have start-up problems. Either I can't make the password screen load (so I can't even log in), or when I do log in, the desktop doesn't load and all I get is a black screen staring me in the face. I've tried installing all the updates numerous times, and had to do a system restore each and every time, just to get my computer to work again.

My question is: does anyone know what's going on and how I can fix this problem? I don't have the time to go through each update to find out which ones are causing this, so I'd rather not resort to this.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

My HP 7500 internal CD rom burner will copy data cds ok, but when I copy some music cds the tracks (repeat on some CDs) will end near the end of the actual track and track two will start (on the recorded CD) with the end of track one's song and start original track two. Again when original track two is near the end the recorder starts the next track on the recorded cd and darn this is driving me crazy. Is it the lousy CD creator software or what? Any ideas?

HP Support Assistant had an update on 11/30/2015, random keys were affected by this. (w,a,s,d,r,Tab,etc.)

My keys won't work properly, I could press and hold w and it won't come active but when pressing it again a second later, it'll work.

my keys would also become active just by pressing it but not holding it as in, it would just spam a later after pressing it once, this applies to all of the keys i mentioned.

I can't determine whether its an update, process, services or anything.

Iv'e tried two system restores, even before 11/30 and I still have this problem.

I'll provide images of the updates and services:


These are the updates I removed +more added






here's all of the running services.
