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.)

I setup and connected VPN connection through my smartphone to my home computer, but I don't know how to get access to files via my smartphone through VPN Connection. Do I use my smartphone internet explorer to access my home computer files or how?

Regard,
Thanks.

A:How to use VPN connection on a smartphone?

What application are you using to establish the VPN connection? A VPN connection should allow a remote device outside the LAN act as if it was and should be able to access resources limited only to that LAN the same way as if it was connected to it.

Just a couple of questions to help us give you the best support:

What phone are you using and what OS does it have (Android, iOS... etc? )

What VPN application are you using on the server to initiate the remote connection?

What is the OS of the home computer you wish to access and is there a shared folder set? If so what are the sharing permissions applied?

Don't worry if you can't answer all the questions, we will do our best with the information provided

Hey guys, quick question.

I have an iPhone 4 and it has the ability to share its 3G data connection over USB (or WiFi)

When I had Windows 7 and I put the option to share over USB, the minute I put the iPhone 4 in over USB, the connection would automatically be detected and used. But with Windows 8, I am forced to use the WiFi feature which is bad for my battery and speed and I wouldnt prefer this of course.

Does anyone know how to set up Windows 8 to use the internet connection over USB?

A:How to setup internet connection over USB with smartphone?

I was checking into setting my iPhone 5 up over the G4 connection, so I did a little research. The phone says to use it that way, you have to set it up as a Hotspot and then your cellular provider has to set up their end.

I do have to turn off the WiFi for the LTE to be active. But I don't really see anyplace to use the phone through the USB. All I have is the Data Storage. Did you have some utility in Windows 7 that made it possible to use the phone this way? Are you using the same OS version now as before?

If you give me the steps you took to set it up in Windows 7, I will try both OSes to see what might be different.

I just had my hard drive reimaged with Windows 7. When I plug my smartphone into the USB port, I hear the bong/bong that it was plugged in, and I even get the window saying that it's installing drivers. But when I go to Windows Explorer, I don't see it as plugged in. I've tried numerous "solutions" online, but nothing has worked.

I just looked in Device Manager under Universal Serial Bus Controllers, and "Apple Mobile Device USB Driver" is there with a yellow triangle and exclamation mark in it. Although I right-click it and update - or uninstall, then scan for hardware changes - neither works.

How can I get my computer to recognize this smartphone?

Addendum: I deleted everything related to Apple, including Bonjour, Quicktime, and iTunes, then tried to reinstall iTunes since I thought that it would install the necessary drivers. It succeeded until the very end, when I got this error:

The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes.

I'm at a complete loss. Not only does iTunes not install, but my Windows 7 computer doesn't even recognize my smartphone when I plug it in.

Hello

My laptop works fine on my network for 80% of the time but the rest of the time I get yellow triangle and the system says limited access. The annoying bit is that when this happens my smartphone is still connected to my wifi network and works perfectly so I can only assume there is a fault on the laptop. I take out the network adapter plug then plug it in and the laptop usually reconnects but sometimes it can take about half an hour!

My laptop is an acer aspire6935 and the operating system is windowsvista home premium. The wireless router is connected to a desktop via a yellow data cable.

Any Help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi TechGuy,

Here's the devices I have.

A netbook (asus eeepc)
A desktop
A samsung omnia smartphone (verizon wireless) running windows mobile 6.1 pro

I need a way to perform synchronization between all three of these - without ever having to physically connect them.

This is what I need to be able to sync - Contacts, Calendar Events, Tasks (to do list) and files (if possible).

Emails are already synced fine because I use IMAP, but it is really frustrating not to have the other things synced. The syncing of files I have done using windows live mesh (which is in beta), and doesn't support mobile devices yet (but it should soon).

So my main concern here is the Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks. Both the computers run Windows XP Pro w/ sp3. The smartphone runs Windows mobile 6.1 pro.
I am trying to figure out how to do this with Windows Live... The reason is - I have windows live search on my phone. It would so great to be able to find a place - add it to my contacts, and have that in my contacts list on my other computers. This is my DREAM. However i really like using Mozilla Thunderbird along with the lightning add-on (for calendar and tasks). Actually Thunderbird 3 is supposedly integrating lightning add on.

So to sum up - I would like this synchronization, but be able to do it with Thunderbird would be fantastic. I am not particularly fond of windows live mail client.

I appreciate any help in this seemingly unsolvable predicament

Thanks.

I have recently gotten a new Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. I've never had one before. So, I'm trying to figure out how to use it so that I don't accidentally get charge for something not necessarily bad as much as like "accidentally banging your finger with a hammer". Right now, it appears to automatically access the Wi-Fi when it's in range and I'm installing free apps. Will I need to keep an eye on that so that it doesn't download apps (or additional app data) via a cell tower? (I did find a setting called "Wi-Fi Calling Settings" under which I can select Wi-Fi Prefered, Wi-Fi Only, Cellular Prefered.) There's, also, a gps on mine. I've found Google Maps, Google Latitude, Navigation, and TeleNav GPS Navigating that can use the gps in one way or another. How far into those programs can I use the gps before I start getting charged for data usage? Is there anything else I need to be careful of so that I don't end up surprised at the end of the billing cycle?

I am confused to decide which is better Samsung galaxy s4 or htc one or iphone 5 or xperia z

things want to consider first thing battery backup, then resolution then camera of course which has the best look

read several reviews and so confused please help
 

A:Which is the best smartphone to buy?

The Galaxy S4 is basically equivalent to the HTC One. The HTC One though, has a better camera and has an aluminum shell. The S4 has a more mediocre camera and a plastic shell (cheaper build quality). They both have basically the same screen. I own an iPhone 5 and love it. The OS is just becoming stale though, and Android (on the S4 and HTC One) is more for power users. iOS (iPhone) is geared more toward rookies who dont know what they are doing since it is so simple. I would take the Xperia Z off of your list since it doesnt match up.

Check out TechSpots' reviews on all three phones:
Galaxy S4: http://www.techspot.com/review/664-samsung-galaxy-s4/
HTC One: http://www.techspot.com/products/smartphones/htc-one.87473/ (I cannot find a full review on TS and posting another sites review would be considered kind of bias)

Hello everyone,
I have an internet connection problem and was wondering if anyone here can help.
I cannot connect to the internet even though all the green lights on the modem are solid and steady. I have a laptop connects (ethernet cable) to the modem (which connect to the ISP). I ask my ISP support to verify my IP address and my modem mac address and they check out good. (I have an XP OS, IE, firefox, and opera web browsers, and a cable modem connection to the ISP - all three browsers cannot connect to the internet.) I can ping the yahoo and google websites and my loopback address, but cannot access these websites via my browsers. I look in the TCP/IP protocol properties and they're all set to automatically obtain the address. I also tried to manually configure the ip address, the sub mask, the dns servers, and the default gateway (first in the general tab, then in the alternate configuration tab) to the ones I found the network connections detail. I tried the ping, ipconfig, and netstat commands to try figuring out the problem but no luck.
Has anyone comes across this problem?

Any help and advices are much appreciated.
Thx in advance.

Hi there, im new to the forums and i've got a problem that's been a real pain for me lately.
I've got a wireless connection in my house going through a Linksys WRT54GC router and also a wired connection with Cisco gateway (only 1 laptop uses it). About 1 month ago some strange things began to happen with the wireless connection, my PC seems not to be able to connect unless I reinstall the protocols and it's really annoying to do that every time I run my PC. Also, the wired connection stopped working (probably because of cable being broken) but it requires a router restart 90% of the time when I want to connect the laptop (that used to connect through cable) to the wireless network. The 2nd laptop has an issue mentioned in the title, the LAN works but it can't connect to the Internet through the router. Ipconfig /all shows that DHCP isn't working, there's no default gateway and DNS seems to be wrong. Could that all be related to router not being updated for a long time? I tried reinstalling drivers, unistalling and installing back network card and doing most of the things mentioned in similar threads but nothing seems to work. I know it all looks very silly but I can't do anything about it, at least now - I don't have access to any router settings and can't update it.

I am replacing my smartphone and need to sync them both together to be able to copy the photos, phone numbers etc. from one smartphone to the other. How do I do this? The makes of each of the two smartphones are Ideos.

Can it be done easily or does it involve sophisticated software?
 

A:Syncing smartphone

Are these Android phones? If so, your contact info should be synced to your Gmail account. Log into the new phone with the same account and that should be copied over. To move pictures, you'll need to upload them to a service or connect your phone to your computer and copy them over.

If the pictures are important, you should have a backup anyway. A smartphone is just a pocket-sized computer. It can crash, fail, etc. and has the added bonus of being easily lost or dropped.

Hey, I've been having this problem ever since coming back home from university. My laptop doesnt seem to be able to stay on the internet very well. I'll be randomly browsing, downloading, whatever, and then suddenly it'll stop. The wireless icon on the taskbar comes up with a &quot;!&quot; and says no internet access. The wireless connection is still full strength at this point, but no internet. What I don't understand is that the internet connection to the main computer (which is wired) works fine all the time; the internet connection works on the other wireless laptops in the house; and at uni I have no problems with the wireless internet. I don't know where the problem can be. Turning off the wireless card and turning it back on works for a few minutes or so, restarting the computer works for a bit longer.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 smartphone, and am trying to download photos from it to the harddrive.

Have installed the Samsung software and when we hook up the phone to the computer we hear the device connect sound but it does not show up as a drive.

Have also hooked up the mini SD card via a hub but the pictures I want are on the phone internal memory.

Nothing shows up in Computer as a drive and the USB's drivers are all up to date

Can anyone help us as please as we are now at a loss as to what to do.

A:Problem downloading from smartphone

You don't need the Samsung bloatware KIES to access the data on the device. Remove this software and just plug the smartphone, Windows will automatically install the MTP drivers (provided the device is in MTP mode, NOT in image/KIES mode).

Is there any benefit to using a USB WiFi dongle versus a smartphone for connecting my laptop to the internet when out?

Both would be using a mobile data package, so would be connecting to the same service I presume.

Is there any benefit to getting a WiFi dongle?

The phone I plan to use is the Moto G:

I am having an annoying and frequent problem with firefox loading websites using smartphone layout. Roughly 30% of the time it will load a page with full screen width images and text that spans the entire screen.
Reloading will sometimes bring it back to normal browser window display, other times it takes several reloads to get it right.
It's not limited to any particular pages, a page will load perfectly fine once, then the next time it loads up wrong.

I've played with user agents, updated, reloaded, reinstalled firefox and the problem persists, any ideas?

A:Firefox loading like a smartphone

I'd reset the FF User Agent to default and delete the cache, if it still happens even after a force-refresh, look for a Desktop link, there's often one at the bottom of the page.

If it persists and you're sure your User Agent is at default and you're sure aren't blocking correct browser capabilities detection with an extension, report it to the site owners.

Acer 5738Z running Win 7 64 bit

New XiaoMi Rednote 3 smartphone

Plug phone into USB the first time and a driver is loaded and everything works fine

Reboot laptop and plug in phone - laptop makes bingbong noise as if it recognises the phone but the phone does not appear in My Computer.

Check Device Manager - the phone is shown but with a warning triangle.

Driver gives the message "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)"

The only way to make it work is to uninstall the device and reinstall the driver.

I've tried a motherboard reset to no avail

Guidance welcome

I wonder whether there will be a Desktop App for the ARM devices. I would think that fishing a document out of the explorer folder on a 4" screen can be pretty finagly.

A:How will the Desktop work on a Smartphone

I was wondering about that myself, I think that's were pinning stuff to the Metro start screen will be used the most.

This will certainly be a big operating system to be stuffed into a smart phone.

I need to export or otherwise copy my contacts from my smartphone to my desktop PC, but can't figure out how to do it..

My smartphone used to sync with the office Exchange Server, but ideally I now want to sync my Outlook contacts with my home PC using standalone Outlook 2003. My PC runs XP SP3 and ActiveSync 4.5. Smartphone is Windows Mobile 6 Standard.

It looks as if I cannot sync Exchage Server contacts to standalone Outlook - if I try to switch to synching with Outlook it tells me the contacts on my phone will be deleted. Is there a safe way of doing this? I would rather retype all my contacts from the phone screen than risk losing them - I can no longer access my former office's Exchange Server.

If I can't use ActiveSync, is there a way of exporting contacts in bulk from Outlook on Windows Mobile?

Thanks for any help - Firepig

My girlfriend just got a Motorola Triumph today, with Virgin Mobile as the carrier. Since we're in a bad spot for internet connectivity with Virgin Mobile's network, we decided to try connecting the phone to our wireless router. The phone connected just fine, but when we tried to go to any websites, it kept saying it couldn't connect to the site. We've tried restarting the phone and reactivating it, as well as turning airplane mode on and off as I have seen working on a few other forums. The 3G works all right as long as we don't wander in to any bad spots, but the wifi refuses to work at all. My dad also has a Blackberry through Sprint I think, and that also refuses to work with our wireless routers. We have two routers, both set to open, so it's not an issue of the wrong password or anything. Laptops can connect wirelessly just fine. SSID broadcast for the routers is turned on. We've tried restarting the routers as well. The two routers are a Linksys and a Belkin (unsure of the models at the moment). If anyone has any ideas to try or any advice to offer, it would be much appreciated. If any more information is needed, I'll be happy to provide it as soon as I can. Thanks in advance!

Hello all I have a trend net TEW-711BR I can connect the laptop via Wi-Fi but smart phones can't any ideas?
 

A:cant connect smartphone to router

We need to know the manufacturer and model for your phone to provide detailed help.

On my Samsung phone I needed to open Settings, then enable WiFi (it is off by default), select my SSID, then choose the encryption type and enter the passphrase.

Hi 7forums!
I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installed on my laptop(from factory). Till few days ago, I could turn it into Hotspot via the stock Hotspot app & used to connect my android smartphone for normal wifi file transfers. But now that app by which I used to create hotspot is missing somehow(coz I can't find it installed apps). So, I give a try to other hotspot creators(virtual hotspot, Wifi hotspot creator setup, etc)... None of them worked. So, I created ad-hoc but soon learned that android phones don't connect to ad-hoc networks. An app called "mHotspot" shows even a problem with my drivers & asked to restore it but in vain. At last...I searched the net about file sharing methods but most of them state that phone must be connected to computer.

My laptop only has essential softwares by factory & I haven't modified any of 'em.

So please if u have that stock hotspot app(black-ish background with only two options: SSID & Password & Start button), kindly share it here.

Please help me to create wifi hotspot on my laptop so that I can connect my phone the usual way like before:crying:

Thanks in advance...

Which 1 is better -
1)Exynos 5260 ; Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 & dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex A15 with 2 GB RAM
OR
2)Qualcomm MSM8928 Snapdragon 400 ; Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A7 with 1.5GB RAM??
 

A:Smartphone processor comparison

Definitely the Exynos 5260, no question about it! It is really a 6 core CPU since it uses the 4 Cortex A7 CPUs to process regular loads and it taps into the 2 A15 CPUs when it needs extra power.
