Preferred Solution: Internet Not Working On Comp But Working On Laptop!

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.)

A: Internet Not Working On Comp But Working On Laptop!

Download spybot ad-aware and avg anti-virus from download.com put them on a cd or flash drive and put them on your desktop computer. Run scans with all three and remove any threats. plug the dsl cable in on the bottom right click on your local area network connection and click repair. go to the command line and type in ipconfig see if your ip and subnet mask and default gateway show up.

Hey all,
I run my DSL through a hub into each of my 3 computers. Today I hooked up my computer (had to move it for a few days) and only 1 will not connect to the internet. I have played around with all the cords and connections and it still wont connect. THe only thing I have noticed is that the LED by the ethernet port is shining orange. Also, my computer will connect to the hub nothing other than that. Anyone know whats up?
THanks, Bruce

A:Internet not working on 1 comp

does the hub have a crossover port or a switch on it to activate the crossover/uplink function? it will show a little picture of wires criss-crossing if you do. try moving it to another port if you have one. if there is a crossover button (and you have the non-internet computer plugged into it), press it and see if that works. you may need to reboot, i'm not sure.

not sure what the orange light means on your NIC. could mean collisions are occuring, or may mean that your card has power. the manual should tell you what it means.

if the hub has lights on it, see if you are getting a "link" light when you plug the cable into the port. some of the newer less expensive hubs don't have link lights to tell you link is active.

if you move the cable on the non-internet computer over to one of the other internet-able computer's ports on the hub, does it work? could be a bad cable.

i would also go into Device Manager and see if you can see your NIC in the list of hardware. i just had a card go flaky on me the other day. i actually had to unistall the software, un-seat and re-seat the NIC, and re-install the software. maybe you have a flaky NIC.

some things to think about...

good luck

All my other wireless devices are also working fine. But only my pc (which is connected with cables to the modem and router), is not getting any internet. Can anyone please help me with this weird problem. Thanks!

Hi, firstly i have signed up to these forums because of it seems that this is the only site where people actually know what they are talking about and the tech support looks superb :)

I first noticed this yesterday 6pm-ish that i had these processes running on my comp: "SYS32DLL.exe", "pp08.exe", and "ld08.exe". I then noticed, as other people have, that pop us were trying to connect to the internet etc. I have on my system AVG Antivirus (free edition) and this didn't pick up anything, not did "ccleaner"

My sys info:
WinXP media Centre Edition
Service Pack 3

I have read many forums about this virus and i have run a few checks but unfortunately i get a bit trigger happy and i booted up in safe mode and deleted the above files then i did the following:

chkdsk (repaired a few things, didn't get log)
CCleaner (fixed a lot, i think i have the logs)
UnHookExec (as i had heard that this messes around with your shell dll's?! so got this to correct it)

Then as i said before i get trigger happy and ran combofix which did run and correct a few things. I have the log of this too.

However the problems i had when i deleted these files are still here, cannot run the internet (firefox) by clicking on the exe file, although i have recently connected my email to my outlook express (had to do this as the web server kept going down) i was able to click the link to your site from an email and here i am in the internet but through IE7.

A:SYS32DLL.exe on my comp! Internet not working, newbie please help!

Combofix should never be run without the supervision of an expert.CCleaner is not a virus or malware remover, it is simply a temporary file cleaner.Please download DrWeb-CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:Double-click on drweb-cureit.exe to start the program.Cancel any prompts to download the latest CureIt version and click Start.At the prompt to "Start scan now", click Ok. Allow the setup.exe/driver to load if asked by any of your security programs.The Express scan will automatically begin.
(This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).If prompted to download the Full version Free Trial, just ignore and click the X to close the window.If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
(This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)Now put a check next to Complete scan to... Read more

This has been an ongoing problem for the past 3 months. I reformat, it's ok for a few weeks then after...the mouse gets jumpy and at the same time, my internet stops working. I have used AD Adware, Spybot, Norton Antivirus, and used AVG....nothing. I try doing the LSPFIX but still, it does not work.

All I can do is reformat to make it work. But I'm tired of reformating every few weeks.

Did you install the chipset and networking drivers? Chipset and drivers for integrated networking cards should come from your PC manufacturer's web site (or Resource/Drivers disk if you have one).

Check Device Manager to see if you have any missing drivers.

ROUTER:ON I have the latest firmware updates on my router and I am not sure why my laptop isn't picking it up...My Ethernet lights has only 1/4 on (because my computer is here) and it should have 2 if my laptop picked the signal up... When I open up Internet Explorer (6), it doesn't respond, not even giving that "Hit the refresh button/go to tools" screen. Wait, now my laptop says it's connected but internet explorer isn't even launching! The process is launching but the application itself isn't!

My 6400 laptop will not go to any internet sites. My settings including DHCP are normal, and there are no error message, but every single website I go to times out. 
The Network Diagnostics tool says my computer is configured correctly, but the device or resource is not responding. When running the tool on Wi-Fi, it also says there’s a problem with the wireless adapter or access point, but I’m confident there is no problem. I tried ipconfig/release /renew /flushdns, and none of that worked. When pinging any address, I get 4 general failures. I tried using my own wired and wireless networks as well as a Starbucks Wi-Fi and my laptop still refuses to connect to any sites. Lastly, I installed new drivers and not only did that not work, the Network Diagnostics tool says it can’t identify the problem.
Any ideas?

Hi Tsp90
Thanks for writing to us. 
When did the issue start? Have you tried on a different network? 
Wifi and LAN cannot go faulty at the same time, looks to be software issue though . 
Any other machine that's working on the same network??
If the issue started lately, please try doing a system restore and observe.

I connect the ethernet cable directly from the modem into the laptop right after reformat into my laptop and no internet wireless or direct connection. Dont know if this will help but when I type ipconfig /all in cmd it gives me this info.

You're probably wondering why there isnt anything said. Well that is because when I did it, it just said "Windows IP Configuration" instead of the usual IP address, subnet, all that junk. I am very confused. Never had this much trouble just connecting to the network right away... Any suggestions?

My laptop indicates that it is connected to our modem and that it has "Internet Access". However, I can't use the Internet on any of my browsers. I've tried turning my Wi-Fi on and off, and that did not do anything. I also tried restarting my laptop and the modem, but that did not do anything either. I checked the Device Manager to see if the NIC was working properly. That said it was working just fine. Unless it's lying to me. I connected an Ethernet cable to my laptop, but I still could not get onto the Internet. I ran my computer in safe mode with networking with an ethernet cable but still could not get to the Internet. I have no idea what the problem is.

My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.
Please help me out.

A:My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.

Hello.The problem could be either in the hardware or the software, so you need to test each. Perform the tests below -- it doesn't matter which one you do first.

To test the speakers, perform the Quick Audio Check in the ePSA test. If the speakers fail the test then they have failed or become disconnected. (Click the link for instructions on how to run the test.)

To test the software, switch between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native driver. [This test assumes that your laptop has the Realtek audio driver. If you get to step 2 and do not see "Realtek High Definition Audio" then go to the Dell support page for your model and download the Realtek driver that Dell provides for the version of Windows that the laptop is running.]
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted.

So recently the sound on my desktop and my laptop has stopped working. For seemingly no reason. I really don't understand it.

I first noticed it with my desktop. The sound just randomly stopped working. But not...entirely. It's really strange and complicated what's been happening, so bare with me while I try to explain it as best I can.

First time sound stopped working on PC. Restarted computer, sound came back, no issues.

Second time I woke up to find VLC frozen. Sound wasn't working. I restarted VLC. No sound. Found out that there was no sound on the computer at all. When I'd try to increase the volume on VLC, it would only change within an interval of ten percent. So it was at 50 percent initially. Would not let me go below 50%, but not above 10%. Sound didn't work anyway. Restarted, sound returned VLC working fine.

Third time I was playing Dragon Age: Inquisition. Sound worked fine, using my headset (Turtle Beach). Went to speakers to lay down and watch some shows on VLC. No sound on speakers. Switched to Turtle Beach again, sound returned. Restarted VLC, now suddenly no sound on VLC OR speakers. Had to restart computer, no issues after restart.

First time sound stopped working, used the "disable audio and reenable audio driver," didn't solve anything. Restarted, sound came back. Sound stopped working again same day, restarted, sound came back.

The next time I restarted the audio driver (Realtek) and then I shut down Explorer and then restar... Read more

A:Sound on Laptop and Desktop Randomly Stops Working and Working

Update: I'm not at home to test my PC, but I think I discovered the issue. It seems to possibly be a glitch or something with flash player.

After watching an episode of Daily Show on Hulu, I went back to Tumblr and saw that a video didn't have sound, and then all sound on my computer was suddenly gone. I then tried something out, and shut down flashplayer. That temporarily brought sound back.

But it quickly went away.

Then I shut down Firefox and flash player entirely, and sound comes back even when Flash Player comes up.

I have a dual boot of Fedora and Windows, and when I boot into Fedora, my headphones work fine. When I boot into Windows 7 64bit, my headphones don't work. My laptop speakers work fine however, and I tried re-installing drivers. I made sure that my headphones are the default playback device, and I only have one headphone jack.

Other people who had this issue solved it by replacing their audio jack, but for me that is not a problem because the audio jack works fine when I boot into Fedora.

Please help!


A:Laptop speakers working, but headphone jack not working only on Window

Normally, the "Speakers" (PC sound) is set as the Default Playback device and not Headphones. In fact, newer RealTek sound systems do not even show the Headphones when plugged in.

Are you using the correct sound drivers? Not the generic Windows installed High Definition Audio Codec.

What all is listed in the Device Manager, Sound section?

I have an HP/Compaq laptop that is quite a few years old but has been working fine. It has stopped connecting to the internet although it will connect to my wireless network. The internet works and all other devices (my tablet, my phone, daughter's laptop, etc) all connect. The laptop started having troubles recently and would eventually connect to the internet if I rebooted a couple of times. However, I've been trying multiple times today and it still won't connect. I have Windows Vista and the repair function has not fixed it or diagnosed the error. Suggestions most welcome.

I just got a new dell laptop. When i turn on the computer, it says i am connected to a wireless network,and i have a full signal. however, when i click on internet explorer, nothing comes up-not even a system message, let alone a website. also, on the bottom toolbar, there is an icon of two little computers and it says "a network cable is unplugged". please help. i can't figure out what's wrong. thanks.

A:HELP!! new laptop and wireless network but no working internet!

Click Start, Control Panel then Network Connections. You should have a Wireless connection there. Double click it. Click View Wireless Networks and you should have a wireless network there. If not click refresh network list on the left. If you do have one shown click on advanced settings then wireless settings. Click on Advanced make sure Any Available Network is checked. If more that one wireless network is showing you have to move your Up to the first position. Also do you have Wep Or Wap enabled? If so you would have to enter the key. Also make sure you are close to your wireless router when doing this to rule out a weak signal.

I have two laptops, a tablet and smartphone which are all connected to my home wireless. When I use my laptop (Acer - Windows 7), the internet runs really slow and web pages keep timing out. This happens whether I use Chrome or Firefox. The internet also stops working completely on all other devices. As soon as I shut down the Acer laptop, the internet works on the other devices fine.
A couple of weeks ago I downloaded Bit Torrent software on the Acer laptop and this is when the problem started so I unistalled the software after a couple of days. I had McAfee antivirus software and Malwarebytes anti-malware at the time. I have unistalled McAfee and installed Avast Antivirus today and run full system scans with both Avast and Malwarebytes and they are not detecting anything.
The hard drive on my laptop is fully defragmented and has plenty of memory available. I also had Hola VPN add-on installed but I have unistalled this today too and this hasn't helped the problem. I recently installed Google Drive backup but have limited both the upload and download speed to 100kbps so I don't think this could be causing the problem.
I've tried restarting the laptop, resetting the modem and connecting to the internet via ethernet cable and none of these help either.
Any ideas of what else I could try? My husband and I both work online so need to use both laptops so this is really messing us up! Thanks in advance for any advice.

A:Laptop is stopping internet from working on all devices

Hello, and welcome
I would reset Winsock and TCP/IP. Type CMD in the search box and right click > Run as Administrator. Type the following commands.

netsh winsock reset
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
I would also open Windows Firewall and remove any program you do not want connecting to the internet.

I have a Compaq Presario laptop, fairly new got it in 2006. It has a built in wireless network card and also a connection for wired connection on the side. I use cable internet and use a home router for sending a wireless signal to the laptop. I also use the one of the pots from the same router to supply a wired connection to the desktop.

However I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet if I plug in the rJ45 connection into the wired NIC and disable the wireless connection. It does detect the wired connection but when I try renewing the IP, it says "cannot renew IP, media disconnected" as if trying to renew the IP from the wireless connection which has been disabled.

Is there a way to tell the system to use the wired NIC instead of the wireless one?

Thank you

A:Laptop working with wirless internet but not through wired

It should do so automatically. Are you sure the cable you're using is good? Have you tried a different port on the router?
Let's see this for the laptop:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:


Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I'm having problems using wired internet with a brand-new Toshiba Satellite L870-13L. The ethernet cable works fine when used with the other Mac computer in the house, but I've been unable to get any kind of internet connection on the laptop. The laptop recognises the cable when it is plugged in but when I check the status of the connection there doesn't seem to be an IP assigned to the computer.

The ethernet adapter is a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller; I've tried installing the latest drivers but without any success. The adapter shows up in device manager without any alerts or exclamation marks, and I've tried disabling the wireless adapter to see if that helped any.

Well, a couple of months ago I posted this same issue on a Yahoo Answers thread, which I will paste here for time-saving purposes.

Internet gradually getting slower, any help?

I recently got Internet installed in my own room, and for the first couple of days, the speed was fine, great actually, considering the fact that I'm paying only a little over 200 pesos for it (approximately $20). Then suddenly, after a little over 2 weeks, the browsing speed started slowing down considerably, to the point that right now, I had to reload Yahoo Answers around 7 times just to be able to post this question, because I kept getting "the connection had timed out".

Odd thing is, download speed stayed the same. I managed to download some stuff from Megaupload and it was speedy as usual. Only browsing was affected, apparently.

Now, I'm pretty sure it's the computer itself, because I connected the Ethernet cable to my dad's laptop and the speed was just as good as the first few days on my computer. Also, I've been surfing (ohmyGod,youdontknowhowmuchofapainitwas) through the Internet trying to find common solutions, and I tried every single one. I scanned for viruses and Spyware with AVG and SuperAntiSpywarePro, deleted Cache, Temp files, used System Restore to a point before the problem, cleaned out all of my useless files (the speed's fine for anything except browsing anyway), used CCleaner, reset my router, used Windows' ...

I did nothing to make it stop working. I was on the internet, stepped away, came back, and couldn't connect. I checked the online connection (by clicking the little icon in the bottom right part of the screen) and it came up with an error. I went to Device Manager, and there is a "!" next to LAN-Express IEEE 802.11 PCI Adapter. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, but the "!" is still there.

Did the actual hardware break somehow? Is there anything I should do before bringing it back to where I bought it? I've only had it for a few months, and never before had a problem

Hello guys

a very annoying problem I have eversince I got wireless internet in 2004. My internet just randomly stops working, mostly when I boot my laptop or when I get it out off standby. This is what happens:

I try to connect to my router, but Windows says "cannot connect to belkin54g" (SSID). The strange thing is, I had the same with my old Windows XP computer years ago, but back then I had a Linksys router. My current router is a Belking (no idea what model).

Also very weird is the fact that my internet monitor (I installed a Windows 7 desktop gadget) shows that the connection is being interrupted all the time. It goes from 33% signal strength to 100% in 3 seconds but after another 3 seconds the signal is lost and the gadget is displaying 0% signal strength. Though the LED on my router's WLAN is not red, nor are any other LED's colored red.

Can someone pleaaaaaaaaaaase help me out? I got this problem for years and years. I've also configured my network card not to go in standby modus whenever the laptop is in standby, this didn't work out the way I've hoped.

One more thing, once I am connected to the router and have access to the internet, there is no problem anymore and I can be online for like 1 month without rebooting or whatever. But sometimes when I reboot/come back out of standby it just doesn't work and I need to reboot again. Sometimes it still doesn't work after rebooting so I reboot again and then it is mostly working, but it is so *beep* annoying... Read more

Iím having trouble with my internet connection on my desktop PC, running Windows XP SP3. I connect through a router/modem provided by my ISP, connected to my PC with a LAN cable (no WiFi). It was working fine until a week ago. Now when I boot my PC, the connection indicator shows a ďlimited or no internet connectionĒ; when I load Firefox, it tries to load my home page for a few seconds, then shows a ďserver not foundĒ message.

The router and internet connection should be fine; when I plug my laptop (using Windows 7) into the router, it works normally.

Iím wondering if the problem could be related to some of the network/internet based stuff Iíve been fiddling with the last weeks Ė Iíve installed SugarSync and updated LogMeIn on the desktop PC a little before the internet connection stopped working (but both worked for a time), and I set up a local ad-hoc wireless network with the XP desktop as a host a few times so I could use both PCs online at once. (interestingly, I never managed to access my XP machine on the network from my laptop, and only once did I manage to access my desktop directly through my laptop (connecting the two with a LAN cable) Ė a second try didnít work). I donít recall fiddling with any of the adapter settings, though, so I canít see that really being the problem. I donít know if any of my services could be a problem Ė my only antivirus program is AVG, and has never created trouble before. Windows Update is trying to continue down... Read more

In normal mode, my Internet Explorer does not work. I try to open it but the pages never come in although I am sure I am connected. I also tried Firefox and that is not work either, with the same error as IE. Windows Live email does work and I am able to pull down email, but none of the browsers work.

Also, when I try to update Spybot, Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes they fail, saying that updates cannot be downloaded. I was able to run and update in Safe mode with network to get the updates and run Spybot, Symantec Antivirus, Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes, and Windows: safety.live.com, but no issues were found and the when I reboot in Normal mode, the same problem exists.

Next, I ran SDfix in safe mode and have attached in this note, but also, the same problems exist (see attached: Report.txt)

Finally, I have now run dds.scr this and am posting the results. (see DDS.txt below and attached: Attach.txt)

Any help you could provide on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I've got a Dell laptop here that isn't functioning properly. I can't get this to work for the life of me! I am currently using this laptop with a different hard drive, it's the install on the SSD that doesn't work. I know that the quick fix would be to simply reload windows, but I don't want the quick fix.

Basically, laptop works with Windows 7 install on a hard drive, no issues. On the SSD, where the ONLY applications loaded are Office 2013 and Firefox (and all the latest updates), the internet does not work (I can ping yahoo.com and get a response, so DNS is fine). The problem persists on IE and Firefox. I have no AV software other than MSE, and the problem persists in Safe Mode w/ networking. The hosts file is clean. The internet worked on the computer just fine when I loaded it, I hadn't used the SSD in a while and when I popped it in, the internet wasn't working. I believe something is getting in the way of port 80, but I can't figure out what. I have disabled all startup applications and all nonwindows services. The computer does not have bonjour. I have cleared history/cookies to no avail. I can't find anything suspicious in the running processes. I can't seem to turn off the windows antimalware process to test that, though.

Any ideas?

I decided to run hijack this and found two BHO's. It's funny that on my new install that I used a handful of times, I have adware, but on this install that's been going for years, I have nothing. Oh well. So I had "Crossrider" and "Coupon Companion". I removed all traces of both, yet still no go. It looks like this managed to install itself on 12/2... which had to be damn close to the date that I bought the SSD, however, I had internet activity as recent as 12/26.

Hi, I've ran into some problems after installing my friend's pirated Adobe software on my new desktop, resulting in my internet browser (Firefox & Internet Explorer) to work but NEVER load ANY site.

Specifically, the browsers will work again when I restart my desktop. However, as time progresses, the number of sites these browsers can access decreases significantly. For example, though in first 10 min it will load home page and say newgrounds.com, after 10 min, only loads home page, another 5 min, loads nothing. The browsers display the fact that they're trying to connect to the website, forever. I also noticed that if the certain applications such as windows media, utorrent and other adobe softwares are turned on. It takes less time for the browsers to stop working. Most often, this is an immediate effect. If you're wonder how I'm able to post this message, it's with the help of my laptop, currently free of infections. I'm positive the internet connection is working since my laptop uses the same connection. The network is set by one modem connected to one router connected to one switch which then connects to my laptop and desktop. While my laptop loads fine, my desktop doesn't.

Less often than the browser occurance are other problems such as rundll stopped working, explorer.exe not working, mouse buttons misbehaving, keyboards typing funny things.

I am not sure if it's related to a malware. so I posted it here. My system is a xp pro, sp3 ,IE7 . I have a wireless networking with total 2 computer attached. My system was running smooth then I don't know why from time to time when clicking on links in IE7 would produce no result. Then I would have no more connection to wireless network and no internet. However the other computer attached to router would still have internet. Then I would try to bring up task manager ctrl+alt+del but it won't show. later I will have freeze but not for the whole computer. when I try to restart computer it won't do it, or very very slow. error message is usually " hsm sink won't end" or something similar, I end manually, still windows won't shutdown. Finally I have to hold power button to shutdown and restarts.
There is not specific time period for this to start to happen, 1-2 or 3 hours. I don't know what triggers it. I thought maybe IE7 is the problem so I started using google Chrome browser. I still have this happening.
I have the DDs text here, and the other 2 logs attached. I disabled panda antivirus before starting this process.

I have a dell inspiron n4010

Basically the sound doesn't work unless its in a hdmi or headphones. It won't play sound out of the laptop itself. I've updated the drivers and checked the bios, and it seems to be enabled. What can be the problem?


A:Sound is not working on laptop. Drivers updated, still not working.

Digital Audio (HDMI) Is the standard Windows driver for sound. You need the realtek drivers which can be found here - http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/uk/en/ukdhs1/Product/inspiron-14r

Download the driver (listed under audio).
Make sure the on-board audio is on in the bios, disconnect from the internet, uninstall all sound drivers and reboot.
Install the driver you downloaded and reboot.

An then reconnect to the internet. (This prevents Windows from reinstalling the Digital Audio HDMI before you can install the correct audio drivers).

Post back and let us know how it goes
