A:2 HDMI ports but only 1 works

Hey rvb,

Do you mean only one HDMI works at a time? When you have a monitor plugged in one port then the other does not work or the other port does not work at all?

Basicly about 3 or 4 weeks ago, my motherboard or graphics card went, i had the computer repaired and it arrived a few days ago.

I've plugged it all in but i can't get any sound.
I've changed my Bios, uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, did some roll backs, plugged in the S/pdif cable altered my properties and still no luck.

Can anyone help me?

Heya. I recently (for Christmas) received a new LOGIK monitor to accompany my old one and I'm having problems getting them both to run correctly. My old monitor used to be using a VGA cable with a DVI adapter at 1920 x 1080, where it worked fine. I plugged in my new monitor with a HDMI cable with a DVI adapter, however upon doing so, the resolution of the older screen was reduced to 1440 x 900 (or something like that) and my new monitor became fuzzy, as in, everything is out of focus and the colours seem dark / unnatural. I've tried using a HDMI cable with the older monitor, where I can get 1920 x 1080, however it too becomes fuzzy. I tried to use the VGA in my old monitor as that worked previously, but no longer does. The screens have their proper aspect ratios (dot to dot, full, whatever you want to call them) and are not using overscan. Sometimes I am able (after hours of playing with CCC and windows control panel) to make one of them display correctly, however after restarting it returns to being fuzzy. All of the cables are connected securely and my drivers are up-to-date (as of 01/01/14). I'll attach a screenshot for further reference (currently i'm just using 1 screen as I had to borrow the second HDMI cable - I'll be getting another in about a week). I've been browsing a wide number of forums for about a week now and cannot seem to get it to work. Sorry if I'm being vague, if there's any more information you need don't hesitate to ask. Thanks.

Hi, We recently purchased two T470 laptops. Both of these appear to have display issues when outputting to an external monitor. Text will appear fuzzy/blurry and after a couple of minutes your eyes starts to hurt from trying to focus on it. Has anybody experienced any similar issues? We also have a T470s that is doing the same but it even has blurry text on the built in screen.

ok first i'll have to make a little note. i have just reformatted my hdd and installed xp home. I have just bought new parts. I have not connected my pc to the internet at all. Yesterday I got everything up and running great. It stayed on for more than 12 hours and I played doom 3 for a couple hours. Today when I started it up, I fooled around with some video settings in doom 3 and then my sound went wierd and cut off. then my system froze. i restarted and windows froze right when the desktop came up. I tried around 10 hours later and it started up and only lasted for around 5 min. Instead of turning it off I let it sit and moved the mouse. Nothing. later i looked at the screen and noticed the cursor had moved. It would move veeeeery slowly. so slow that it would jump from one end of the screen to another. then it would freeze again. then i could move the mouse again. its wierd and I have no idea what is causing my problem. I'm not sure if my hardware could be causing a problem. I bought a huge fan for my cpu and it works fine. I'm just really really stumped considering it worked for such a long time yesterday but not today. could it be my psu (400w)? video? help.

A:xp works great yesterday but not today

I hope it's not possible to damage the video card with any settings within Doom3...I guess not, though.
If you haven't done anything else you might just have been lucky yesterday.
You should boot in Safe Mode and check if you have any of those slowness-problems there, too. If not, chances are high it's a driver issue.

Hi, just wanted to pass on that Windows 10 works great on the W4 820; in fact it works better than Windows 8.1! I did have one issue with the upgrade. The wifi would sometimes stop working. So I downloaded the latest driver pack for windows 8.1, decompressed the file so I could just get to the wifi driver. I then deleted the default Win 10 driver and installed the Win 8.1. Driver. After doing that the wifi has worked without issue. Also after Win 10 loads the first time everything will be slow because there is no proper Intel HD graphics driver installed, but it is easy to get the correct driver installed by running Windows Update manually. Once the correct driver is installed proper hardware rendering will work. In my experience the interface works BETTER than on 8.1. To actually do the upgrade I downloaded the Windows 10 ISO image using the app here:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO Remember, you need the 32 bit version of Win 10 home. I then used Rufus to convert the ISO to a USB:https://rufus.akeo.ie/ I then just ran the installer from within 8.1 and told it I wanted to keep all my apps and settings. One benefit of Win 10 is that it compresses system files that aren't often used.

I have onbored Intel GMA X4500HD which intel claims has hardware acceleration for HD movie playback.
I could never get this to work properly with vista even with the power dvd HD codec installed?

I also tried all the dodgy codec packs available (which in my experience courses more harm than good) in my quest for low cpu usage during 1080p or just any HD playback in general really. And although my monitor isn't even a HD monitor it's still above standard definition & I just like to know things are working as there advertised I guess? Plus I plan to get a HD monitor when my finances permit me to?

I also had this problem with my old pc with an ati card installed aswell.

Anyways I installed windows 7 & hardware acceleration works right out of the box, literally. No codecs & no messing about it just works as advertised. The codecs are there already & work as they should do for once. My cpu usage is down from 30/70% to 0/20% max now. It was 70/100% without any codecs & 30/70 was the best I could get with vista.

With Windows 7 Microsoft has really hit the nail on the head for me, so to speak. Bootup times are so fast & so far I haven't had to install a single codec for once.

It's like a refined vista with all the same features plus a few more just for good measure.

A:Great, hardware HD acceleration works out of the box.

Well, glad to have you on the site. That certainly is one of the beauties of new operating systems. It's often much faster to get it setup and working again. And for those of us who tinker endlessly with our PC's...that can save us a lot of time.

I've been pretty darn happy with Windows 7 myself. No complains, ordered a copy of Vista 64 for my new build with a free upgrade to Win7. At present, I'm running Win 7 RC1 and have no plans to put Vista on this machine...just going to install Win7 and go from there.

The one program I was concerned about not working under Win7 x64 was Netlimiter. I've always hated the versions above 1.3 so on a whim I decided to ignore the "This software has known compatibility issues" warning and install it, after reading that 1.3 doesn't use device drivers like the newer versions.

I installed as Administrator into the Program Files (x86) folder. Before rebooting I ran it as Admin just to see if it would work. It did so I did a reboot and it's been running fine.
Seems to throttle fine, adjusting bandwidth on the fly works a treat as well.

The only tiny glitch I've come across so far is once when I tried adding more schedules to utorrent it was a little flaky.

I set up the rules and they worked. When I went to add more about an hour ago it didn't add the rule to the list no matter how many times I tried. However when I rebooted all the attempts showed up meaning that it was adding the schedules but not showing them in the list which is good in that it works but would be nice if it was consistent.

So far no BSOD or any major problems. Seeing as I rarely need to alter or add schedules once they're in place, it's occasional flakiness in that area is something I can live with.

The upside is Netlimiter 1.3 works on Windows 7 x64 !!

Thought I'd post this to let others know who like the program but aren't happy with the newer versions.

A:Netlimiter 1.3 Works Great windows 7 (64 bit)

UPDATE:
So after nearly a month of testing I have come across one major issue.
For some reason it seems to block Outlook connectivity to Exchange Servers only.
It did not effect POP3 at all. Outlook 2003,2007 and Outlook 2010 all gave the "Unable to connect to exchange server" which was strange given that connection to Exchange was fine on my XP Pro SP3 laptop sitting beside the Win7 (x64) machine (meaning my network was fine).

"The connection to the Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action."

I kept rolling back network related installs, first being ESET smart security, then netlimiter. Once netlimiter was gone Exchange connected. Reinstalled ESET smart security and Exchange is still okay so the culprit has been found.

If I didn't have to connect to my Exchange server for work then I'd still be using it.

There may be other things it inhibits but that was the only one I came across. Everything else worked perfectly. So unfortunately for my setup it had to go.

I've been having a problem with my laptop the last few days that I think is strange (or it could be very simple, I don't know). 
 
So my 6 month old laptop just started becoming very unresponsive a couple of days ago: all windows becoming unresponsive, audio and video jumping around, simple applications like the start menu taking minutes to open after clicking. I thought nothing of it, switched off the computer and came back to it the next day. Only now, after I put my password in on startup, I was just getting a blank black screen. I could open task manager with ctrl-alt-del, but I couldn't actually do anything. So I took out the battery and switched it on and off over and over and each time I got a black screen on startup. THEN, when I did get it to work everything becomes unresponsive either immediately or within half an hour. But every now and then I switch it on and everything works fantastically!
 
It's not an internet thing, I have the problem on and off line. I downloaded the Windows Malicious Software Removal tool and did a scan and came up with no viruses. I did scans with Microsoft Security Essentials and SpyBot and found nothing either. It can't be a case of the memory being full or anything either coz there's hardly anything on it. 
 
So in short, every time I switch on my laptop I get either a black screen or a frustratingly unresponsive system. But every so often it works great. Sorry if this post is in the wrong place. I'm not sure tha... Read more

Just had a disaster with Mini Tool partition wizard bug. Wrecked a partition.



That is wrong, plenty of free space ( it was trying to align the partition ) Another message popped saying it was a PW bug. Couldn't take a screenie of that as not able to select until okaying the bug message.

Checkdisk made a lot of corrections, but almost nothing left apart from the program files folder.


1) To see if Mini tool could redeem itself, I ran MT Data Recovery . ( Not free )

MiniTool Power Data Recovery - Personal License

It did a great job, finding several possible volumes, highlighting the most likely. Recovered just about everything with folder structure, and all working.


2) For comparison, I ran Recuva ( free). Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

Sadly, even with deep scan it only found a few useless bits on the least likely volume. Not finding the others at all.


3) Then I tried Puran (free ). Data Recovery - Recovery files from damaged media

Hadn't used it before. It found the same volumes as MT data recovery had, suggested the same most likely, and revealed the same files.




It was also able to recover with folder structure in full working order.

I did have to fiddle about a little at this point.

The default resulted in recovered files that were broken. Selecting the second option ( as in screenie ) worked perfectly.



Fantastic result for Puran

A:Data Recovery Puran works Great

Thanks for posting this. I'll download and give it a try. You might also like to take a look at Lazesoft's Recovery Suite as that's also worked well for me! I'm not saying that it does a better job - just that it's worth a try.

Hi all...have you guys experienced this? Even when turned all the way up, the video playback is great, but the audio is simply too low. Virtually every time. I installed some x64 codecs, but to no avail.

The same happens on my 2nd T60p which runs Vista Ultimate 32-bit. I use the VideoLAN player, which plays back almost anything, and I also am the proud owner of a license for PowerDVD Ultra, Deluxe version. No audio problems there. I have installed Service Pack 1 on both Ultimate x64, as well as x86, and the issue is the exactly the same.

Am I overlooking a small thing, such as not putting a checkmark in the right place? Is there some other kind of workaround?

Thanks all!

A:Carbon X1 incredibly Dim - Works great on external

It is impossible for me to diagnose the issue without seeing it. There are several parts involved.   It is normal to disable the internal battery (in the BIOS) when removing the rear cover.  You may have blown the fuse that drives the backlight.  There is a Hall sensor (magnetic switch) that dims the screen when the lid is closed.  The switch can be broken or the magnet in the palmrest can get lost or moved.  The panel could be bad and a bad panel can cause a short that blows the fuse.

Hi there
I'd accidentally deleted an entire Video library from a set of TWO disk drives defined as Spanned as a single 4TB GPT formatted drive.

I thought I'd had that -- but eSupport Undelete Plus worked an absolute miracle and was able to restore the entire library even though at delete time I got message "File to big to send to recycle bin -- delete permanently".

I was just in the process of going to arrange backups -- and was re-organising my Disks -- just shows you that an accidental delete can happen to ANYONE no matter how careful you usually are -- and it would have been a HUMUNGOUS pain to re-create this all over again. -- I'm running W8 x-64 enterprise (TechNet edition) BTW.

Fortunately I hadn't touched anything an the drive after deleting the library so the ENTIRE library was re-coverable -- nearly 400 GB of Video !!!!!. and this was on 2 disks spanned and set as GPT.

Well worth EVERY EUROCENT / CENT / PENNY etc. -- Everone is going to delete some major library by accident at least ONCE at some time.

On restore it restored all the files to the original directories and sub directories so I just had to click the boxes for the files and the program did the rest -- brilliant piece of software.

Well I needed to do a bit of messing around with some old hardware and drivers today. So I did a system image using the W7 option in Backup and restore. As it turned out I ended up having to do a restore of the system image, not that I was expecting anything else. Put it my repair disk booted up selected the image restore options and off it went. It did take a bit of time around 2 hours but all is back to what it was before I started.

The only thing I did not like is the fact taking so long it is a bit hard to actually know if the operation is still running or not. It does have the progress bar but you really need to watch that to see if progress is being made at all

The system runs great but when i reconnect the first HDD the system doesnt make past the POST or black boot up screen.

Im not sure what to do to get my HDD working with my SSD. I want to have my SSD for windows7 and few games and the HDD for videos, documents etc. At this point I have no Idea what to do.

Many thanks for any help in advance.

A:SSD installed and works great but HDD freezes system any ideas?

What firmware does the SSD have? 1.3.3? That's the one that got my system to be stable.

I can go to any website and click on a button or link and it goes to that site. Now if I go to my banks website I can enter my name and password and then click on the 'log on' button and it will take me to the next page. Then if I click on something it will indicate I clicked by the button (or option) showing that you clicked on it, but nothing will happen. The rotating internet globe or whatever you call it will do nothing. I ran chkdsk, restored all the settings to their default, ran Norton Anti-Virus and Ccleaner and nothing helps. I talked to the bank and they never heard of anyone having this problem. All research I have done by Googling brings up people that have no mouse click response on any page or so but not on one page. Looking over the web, I noticed that banks seem to be running some petty buggy software, even the big banks. Thanks for your help.

A:Mouse works great except on banking software page.

Try a different browser. Also, you have to go beyond the bank's usual staff and get to someone in IT.

Hi there
I use the Squeezebox system from Logitech for streaming music from my computer HDD's (network HDD's)and also Internet Radio

Now there's an app available FREE which enables you to do exactly the same from your computer -- so if you are on the road etc you can use the same Internet Radio / Music folders for playing on your PC without the server connecting to the remote devices

The interface looks EXACTLY like the Hardware controller when using the server at Home to remote devices -- so you can play all your favourites etc without having to go through hoops and loops to find everything again.
You need to install the Logitech media server (also free--I use their Internet Radio and a couple of squeezebox receivers - excellent system)

The software for running on a Stand alone PC is SOFTSQUEEZE and can be downloaded here
Squeezebox Software Beta Downloads - Version 7.7

Incidentally you can also sync this app with an Android phone so you can either have the music playing via your phone (Wifi needed) or you can use the Phone as a remote controller -- which is what I'm doing as I'm in a Hotel Bed listening to the radio via the computer -- and I can control the whole thing while in Bed (Lazy Bu---r) !!.

This is what it looks like after you've started the server

Cheers
jimbo

The title says it all. My connectivity is fine but the internet, mainly streaming audio/video is really slow. Ive posted before but havent received any advice. Everything is perfect in safe mode. How might I diagnose the problem?

Mike

A:Slow Internet - Works Great in Safe Mode

Typically...if the problem doesn't occur in safe mode, but does in normal...I would conclude that something that loads in normal mode is interfering with the connection.

That could be add-ons you have installed in your browser...malware...or such. I would start with disabling all browser add-ons that are not essential.

Here at work i have 10 pc's and one file server(contains company software). All pc's have access to both the internet and the file server. Everything has worked great until yesterday. One the pc's quit getting on the internet. Both firefox and ie can not find google. I was told by the user that the internet seemed to go on and off for a hour or so then nothing.

The weird thing is that via that computer i can still access all the files on the file server, run programs of the file server and ping all pc's on the network. But still no internet access on that computer only. All of the other computers have internet access and work just fine. I released and renew the ip, pinged the nic card, everything looks good. The only thing that was added to this particualr computer is firefox did an update yesterday but afterward everything workd fine?? Any suggestions??
 

A:Network works great! But one computer doesnt have internet

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

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.

Hey gang...I'm doing a blog in wordpress for a client. He let me know the other day that it looks all messed up. I looked at it and it looks fine...

Here's the site...if someone has both firefox and IE, you can see the difference:http://www.lpulifestyle.com/?page_id=5In Firefox, you can see how it's supposed to look, in IE, you can see random html code PLUS, it only shows ONE post, out of 8.Soooo...still being flabbergasted, I tried to log in to admin on wordpress in IE, and even the "manange posts" is screwed up.

I purchased a Western Digital Caviar Blue 320gb IDE HDD. I the put it into an HP Pavilion 750n, 1.6ghz, 512mb, 32mb graphics card, DVD ROM, CD-R/W computer. Computer is in good working order except that it required a new HDD. The computer boots and displays the following message: "Primary drive fails". Now here's the funny part, first off it tests good with GWScan (which is just data lifeguard, essentially), windows XP not only sees the drive but happily formats and loads files to it (when the HP restarts it produces the error message and will not continue w/the 2nd half of the instalation). Any other computer is happy to accomodate the drive and this computer will gladly recieve any other hard drive besides this one leading me to believe that both the computer and the drive are actually quite functional.

Is there anything I can do? Or do I have to suck it up and get a more expensive drive or just use a 40gb I have lying around...I was thinking of a BIOS flash but before I do that I would like some confirmation that I'm thinking straight.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Hello,
I have Windows 7 Professional 64bit. I got a new stick of 4GB DDR3 1333 memory. Whether I use it by itself or with another stick, the computer blue screens with random errors instantly when trying to boot Windows 7. A 2GB stick of the same speed from the same manufacturer works great in Windows 7. So you would think that the memory stick is bad. But I let it run a memtest86 test for over 8 hours, it made 6 passes and had no problems. Also passed a Windows Memory Diagnostic from the startup menu. I was able to boot into Ubuntu 64bit with no problems. It recognized the full 6GB and was passing a linux memtester test with no issues. So the memory seems to be good. Is there some setting that could cause Windows 7 64bit to crash with 4GB or more?

I should add that I can't boot into safe mode either. Random blue screens when the 4 colored dots are moving on the boot screen.

Well, here is my set-up. I have my modem which connected to a Netgear router, model WGR614 v6, which is connected to my pc and xbox 360.
Well i bought the router about 2 years ago for my laptop, but then my laptop gave out on me. So I have been using my router so that i can be on my Xbox and pc at the same time.
Well, yesterday I found a wireless adaptor in my grandma's house for the xbox 360 so i decided to see if it still worked since my cousions no longer need it. It connected fine to my wireless network.
Now today, everything went corrupt. Now if i connect my pc and 360 to my router, it does not work. But if I connect the pc straight to the modem, with no router, internet works fine. When I connect my router, it says that it has limited or no connectivity, what can this be? Did my wireless xbox 360 connection mess everything up?

Hi all.
The problem is as stated. I've had this monitor for awhile and it works great for video. But recently I plumbed in the USB plug (from the monitor to the case) in order to get protable usb memory sticks to work on the side ports on the monitor. It's supposed to be able to read them, but doesn't, and drivers don't seem to exist for this monitor. I'm using the HDMI connection for Video, the power plug is firmly seated. There is an open 12V DC connection open, but it is tagged with an "audio" label. Is there something I'm missing, does anyone else have this monitor where the usb's work. It's just tiring climbing under my desk everytime clients give me memory sticks, and there's already too much on my desk top.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Guys,

I have a win7 desktop upstairs with all of my media on it. I also have a winXP laptop that I would like to use as a media center running xbmc connected to my tv downstairs. I have set up a workgroup so my laptop can access the media stored on my desktop and everything works great when they are both hardwired to my router (Linksys E3000). However, as soon as I unplug my laptop from my router and switch to the wireless connection I can no longer ping my desktop or access the shared folder (internet still works fine on the laptop, it just cant see my desktop anymore). If I plug it back in to the router, everything works again.

I have checked a lot of forums but haven't found anyone who really seems to be having the exact same issue as me. This one seems to be the closest I can find however I tried most of the solutions mentioned there without any luck. I would love some fresh ideas if you have any, very close to just saying forget it and buying a new router (if that is even the issue but it's all I can think of).

The exact error message I get when I try to access the shared folder is "\\INFINITY\Media is not accessable. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found."

Thanks for any help, laptop specs are below.
