Hello...I am running Windows 7 64-Bit. Recently, I was accessing the Devices and Printers menu (from the Start Menu) and received the following error, which of course, stops me from seeing my printers:

Does anyone know how to correct this? I tried the "find an online solution option" the error gave me, but that did not do anything.

Welcome ng2dude.

If this problem has only just started occurring, I suggest you run System Restore and restore to a point before this problem occurred.

Added a new HP M604 printer to the network to replace an M601 printer that was no longer working. The printer is deployed via group policy as a deployed printer. The printer is using the Universal Printer Driver PCL 6. I can access the printer properties

I know this problem has been discussed with many variants but not quite the same as I'm experiencing, so I'm starting a new thread.

I did a clean install of Windows 10 pro 64 bit, and everything was running perfectly, that is until two days ago when the computers on the network simply disappeared. I had done nothing with changes or new software or anything of that sort.

I checked network discovery and it was on, but the only computer showing was the home computer. I have tried turning discovery off then rebooting and then back on again and rebooting. In all cases the network drives are accessible. I have manually entered the computer name in the address bar of File Explorer eg "//COMPUTER2" and then I can go and enter the other computers manually. Everything will stay there until I close down File Explorer and then they disappear again only shown the home computer.

As I said in the beginning I have done nothing that would change any of Windows 10 settings. As anyone got any possible answers this, it is most frustrating.

Robert?

Hi,I had to post this question because non of the solutions available on the internet worked for me. Some weeks ago, my FN + Function Keys stopped working on my HP ProBook 4540s. For example, FN + F7 = MUTE.I had updated all of my drivers, including the HP Hotkey Support driver for my laptop's model (even reinstalled); ran Keyboard Diagnostics in UEFI, everything was fine. I then decided to remap some of my keyboard keys to check if there was really a problem with my Windows and found out tthere was. Even after remapping, these combinationes weren't working. I thought to give it a try here in the forums before getting my laptopp serviced, I really don't think I need to do it because I believe there is some problem in the software like some option for this is disabled. But action keys was not even in the BIOS as others had (my BIOS was updated). Functions keys (F1-F12) were working, FN was working too but combinations aren't woking.  Hope someone helps me out,HDash_Tech

You really need to run XP Repair but you need an XP disk for that:
http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
Next best would be to try System Restore to a date prior to problem.
I woulod also suggest running online scans as your pc is not up to date with Windows Updates and you are probably infected:
www.bitdefender.com
www.ewido.net
and then update to SP2 so you can run other Windows Updates.

As the title states, since the last three days certain function keys have stopped working properly.Fn+ : F3/F5/F6/F7 have stopped working whilst FN+: F4/F8/F12/Up/Down/Left/Right/Delete/Home/PgUp/PgDn/End are still working normally.It's a rather annoying situation since I am unable to enable/disable the touchpad this way.

Hi,
Please can someone help me with the Hibernate function in Windows 7.
Many months ago I spent countless hours trying to troubleshoot the Hibernate/Sleep function on Windows 7 and eventually gave up. I subsequently had to reinstall Windows 7 on a reformatted drive and to my amazement from that day on the Hibernate function has worked
It has continued without major problems until 48 hours ago. Because of the past problems, I have routinely made manual restore points at regular intervals and whenever the Hibernate mode faltered I have been able to wind back to a working state.
One thing which has regularly messed with the Hibernate function has been a program called LP Recorder, for recording vinyl LPs. Having some LPs to record on Saturday evening I created a Restore Point prior to starting. Yesterday, after all the LPs were transferred to CD, I restored to Saturday's Restore Point but this time I have not restored the Hibernate function. Worse still is the fact that all my previous Restore Points have vanished without a trace.
Since I worked on the LPs, I have not made any other changes to the system I am running, no programs have been installed or removed, in fact I have really not done a lot on the computer.
Can someone please suggest a possible solution, or explain the apparent connection between a program that records on the Line In jack and the Hibernate function? In my own mind I am totally convinced there is a connection, the problems that have occur... Read more

I was just working happily when my Microsoft Bluetooth Mouse just suddenly stopped working.
The Bluetooth settings page says "Bluetooth is turned off" and there are no options on the settings page or the system tray to turn Bluetooth on.
The Device Manager now has "Unknown USB device - device descriptor request failed" where it did not before.
Other devices all seem to be working fine - USB devices plugged in are being recognized and work properly. Only BT seems to be broken.
I've tried:
uninstalling the device and rebooting
installing the latest updated chipset drivers from the dell website
windows updates

I can't figure the best place to post this, and it's a tough question anyway, but I'll "throw a Hail Mary" here, as they say, and hope.

My office switched me from a VMWare-based Office/Outlook 2010 email setup, to a local PC-based Office/Outlook 2013 about four months ago. This was done pretty painlessly, and part of the cutover was a seamless cutover of our Outlook webmail.

As I said, all went great, except for one thing, and that is the Outlook webmail's search feature cannot find anything that has happened in the four months since the cutover. Eight-year-old email? Found in a second. One sent or received yesterday? Unfindable.

I can't find the answer to this myself, no matter how carefully I research it.

Our outsourced IT people have been asked, and they can't chase it down either, and since they're on the $$clock$$, the powers that be at my office don't exactly embrace them pursuing it too hard either.

Given that I can identify the date of the problem (date of cutover), and likely cause (switch from VMware-based Outlook to newer version on my local PC), I don't think it should be that hard to fix.

Ideas?

OK let's say I have this pic:

And I want to easily post it on my blog (the "Add Picture" function in blogger is really bad, it basically screws up the page design, which is why I don't use it)

What I would usually do is drag the pic with my mouse, take it over the "blogger tab", and release my mouse on the text writing area.
This would result in the pic being perfectly displayed in the text area.

Now, after upgrading to firefox 3.1, instead of the pic being perfectly pasted, it simply takes over my tab. (the tab's address is redirected to the pic's address)

Is there any solution for this, I bet it's something inside the firefox's config menu (about:config).

You need the ATK_Hotkey UTILITY for all the functions of the Fn keys, such as sound volume.  Asus does not have any Win 7 utilities and drivers for you laptop posted, just Vista.  The Vista utilites and drivers may or may not work.  Your alternative is to search the internet for Win 7 utilites and drivers for your hardware, but Windows will not provide them  A good place to start is on-line forums for your laptop and Asus Support has their own forums.

Touchpad is working only intermittently. Under Human Interface Devices, I have 2 entries for 12C HID Device. When the pad stops working, one will have a ! in a triangle with a code 10 error. I can uninstall, hard shut down (note: restart does nothing. Hard shut down is required) and have the touchpad back, usually throughout startup. It will disappear again just after startup. Rinse, repeat four or five times, and it will work for maybe a couple of hours. I've removed everything from Startup. I've updated using Lenovo Vantage and Windows Update. I am at the point of considering a factory reset, but I'd rather not do that if anyone has a suggestion? I've been dealing with this about two weeks. Not sure if it was in conjunction with a Windows Update, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised. Note: If I uninstall both 12C HID Device entries, rather than uninstalling the second entry, the first reappears with the warning sign.

Hi there,

As described I my middle click function has stopped working on my mouse, at first I assumed it was a Chrome update and that I could no longer use it to "Open link in new tab" however it seems that it now does absolutely nothing and I am unable to reassign it. I used CAD software (Solidworks) that requires the middle mouse button for me to be able to pivot my view about the pointer on the screen (also a few PC games I play would be much smoother if I could do this).

I have all the latest drivers and firmware installed.

I did find this thread that I thought might help me; Middle Mouse Button , however the screen shot at the bottom shows the Mouse Options on the Control Panel having a lot more option than it does for me, the only options I have are switching the left and right mouse buttons, double-click speed adjustment and ClickLock.

The buttons assignment window that I get using the Razer software gives no more options other than to assign the forwards and backwards buttons ("Windows Button 4" and "Windows Button 5").


Thank you for any help you can give.

Hi - I'm unable to turn on Network Discovery, and the problem looks like it might be because the Function Discovery Resource Publication Service will not turn on. I have it set to Automatic, but when I try to Start the error 0x80070005 Access Denied error is returned. I am running Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 - turning that off doesn't help. Thanks for any help you can give.

There are several possible causes for this problem which comes up all the time.

The link below shows many possible solutions, read through the thread and see if you are having similar problems. Check to see if you have the tunnel adaptor problem, posting the ipconfig/all would also be helpful.

i use 2nd display when i watch films on my pc as its better thru tv, but when i wasnt watching films i would set it back to just single display as it annoyed me when the pointer would get lost off screen on the 2nd display.

A:2nd display stopped working

I'm going to ask a few questions to help get acquainted with the issue and your hardware;

1: What OS are you running?
2: Do you know what make/model video card you have?
3: Does your video card have a DVI (White, rectangular connector) output?
4: How many outputs does your video card have in total?

hey people, im new here so b gentle haha

basically, ive been using 2 displays, a 17" lcd monitor and my 40" samsung hdtv.
i use my 2nd display(TV) for when i watch films on my pc, then select back to normal single display once i have finished(it annoyed me the pointer would go off screen onto the 2nd display when i wasnt using it) and it was working fine like this for ages, then 1 day i activated 2nd display as normal, but it wouldnt reconise it what so ever.

ive tryed reconnecting all the wires etc but it still doesnt reconise the 2nd display??
all i can think is maybe some kind of update has changed settings and made it not reconise it?

and help would b greatly apprieciated?

I continue to receive this message after upgrading to Win 10.  I'm not sure what the SW does, but my monitors "black" color is not as vivid as with Win 8.1 -- other colors are not quite as bright either.  How do I get HP My Display back?  HP My Display has stopped working
