Q: databse for keeping records of problems and solved problems

hi guys,

whats the easiest way to keep a database of system problems
and how they were solved so i can review particular problems without chasing my tail

is there a written application im not aware of?
or would i have to create my own DB from scratch?


any thoughts please...

Preferred Solution: databse for keeping records of problems and solved problems

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.)

Hello people. I have an older system: Compaq Presario PC 7947, 600 MHz AMD Athlon, Windows 98SE, 256.0MB RAM, high speed cable, and I am having some internet connectivity issues. For years my computer has worked fine; but now, I am connected through a router and I am no longer getting the same internet performance as before. I wired through a D-Link DI-624 router. I would expect a slower connection than before, so I accept that. But when I try to download bigger files, the download often times out. Sometimes the download gets as far as 60-70%. I checked out D-Link's knowledge base, and they suggest that this is a typical issue with older 10/100 BaseT network cards. (I am using a cicero 10/100 Base T Version PCI (RJ45) ethernet adapter. The problem is the older cards have a hard time establishing a connection speed with the router unit. D-Link says I can resolve this issue by locking down the speed of my Ethernet card. BUT they only provide instructions on how to do this for 2000 and XP. Is there no such fix for Windows 98SE? If not, does anyone know of another network card that might work with my system and this router? I see D-Link has a discontinued card--which is still available. It is the "D-Link DFE-530TX 10/100Mb Ethernet NIC Adapter." Is this a non-"BaseT"? Or any other suggestions? Thanks! Iggy.
P.S.: Sorry for the long post, but I figure the more details I provide, the better.

A:Solved: Problems keeping a constant connect to the router

Just an update... It appears as though this problem has fixed itself. Ever since I have installed my firewall (Zone Alarm), I have not had the frequent download problems as before. This is counter to what I would have expected. I thought that a firewall would have slowed down my connection speed. I assume in most cases this is true, but I'm thinking that the firewall somehow helped my network card and router to communicate at a more steady speed. Odd... I'll mark this as solved by little digital gremlins.

Another doubt I have is:

I have a form to register applicants data. In it, there are the fields:

Candidate Address

and with the Candidate_Id filled in, it opens other tables concerning Professional Experiences, Literary Abilities and other Abilities.
What I need to know is how can I get to know if any of these data (including address, other abilities and others) been altered and how to list that. OR how to present a report or something of the last change for all the candidates.

Thank you

A:Keeping history of records

That is a pretty common issue with small databases that become more and more important...

Depending on how detailed you need to be, you could narrow it down to one to two fields: a date field to note the date of changes, and a text field that could indicate which information changed.

Bottom line is that it is something you have to create yourself.

I have an Access database used on daily basis to print maintenance work order. Each work order is assigned with an auto field No. I have a commend button assigned to print each record in a report format. On clicking command button, i enter the record number to be printed and it previews the report and check for accuracy of data entered. Once checked, i click on the print icon to print the same.

My question is, is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now is already printed before? A kind of record keeping of the printed records. Also, the same method shall help me to find out how many times each record is printed?

Hope someone can help me

I recently updated to Firefox 2 and ever since then (I believe it happened then) whenever I type a letter(s) in the search bar, it lists a whole bunch of previous searches. Even stuff from a very long time ago that I don't even remember searching. I tried clearing cache's and messing with some options, but I can't seem to figure out why it's doing that and how to get rid of it. IE isn't doing it. It doesn't even happen when I go to the actual search page (google.com, for example).

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot,

A:Firefox is keeping search records of some sort...

Firefox 2.0 has a feature called 'Search Suggestions'. This attempts to predict the search terms you are going to type. It can be handy sometimes but if you'd prefer not to use it, right-click on the search box and untick 'Show Suggestions'.

I just upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista, I wanted to keep all my files and programs in place. Now I am having trouble with internet activity, it seems like I have a cap on bandwidth that has been set up by Windows 7. When I exceed said cap it will disconnect the LAN and I have to go into the Network and Sharing Center to have 7 troubleshoot the problem and it eventually resets the network adapter, which resets my connection until it shuts off again. There are very long periods when it doesn't disconnect, sometimes it's very short.

I've been looking for solutions for this since I upgraded, I found one that worked for someone and that was setting a static IP for the network adapter, this was done by accessing the LAN from the network and sharing center and changing it from 'obtain IP automically' to 'use the following IP address'. Using this method, I succeeded in connecting to the internet, but it still had the same issues as before. I have undone these changes so it's back to obtaining the IP automatically.

I am thinking that I should try to A) upgrade the firmware in the router B) update the drivers in my network adapter (I can't find a specific name for the drivers I have) C) Do a clean install of either Vista or 7

I would appreciate any advice on what to do next, as I am unfamiliar with what is really wrong here.

A:Problems with keeping connectivity.

Updating the router firmware and network adapter drivers are good first step.

The Device Manager should tell you what you need to know about the network adapter and it's current driver.

You can post that info here and we can take a look at it.

We have a cable modem with a new Linksys Router. There are 5 computers, including mine, connected via wireless cards to the network. I have a Wireless G PCI card that I bought several weeks ago and installed myself. My computer will connect to the internet fine, and will run perfectly for a while, and then will completely lose connectivity, of course shutting down my AIM for example, and causing Internet Explorer to stop working. It starts off slowing Internet Explorer way down, and when I check the internet activity, the packets sent are still moving along very fast (10-20 per second), but the packets received start moving very slowly (like 1 every few seconds). Then it'll just disconnect me. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but to no avail. A lot of the time, when I just have AIM running as away and am not using my computer, I'll come back about 10 minutes later to find that it's disconnected. And again, sometimes its as little as 2 minutes, and sometimes it'll work fine for up to an hour. Im just baffled. Any help would be appreciated.

I am running a large survey for which I set up a Word 2003 file in order to match survey responses to the questions. The survey responses download in Excel 2003 format. I can locate the data source each time, but the records refuse to match up. There are nearly 200 entries in the survey -- some of the response fields are blank, but they still exist -- so going through and attaching each record becomes very confusing. I use the mail merge function and select a new data source, but just before the merge runs I get a window that says, "Invalid Merge Field, This merge field is used in the main document, but it does not exist in the data source." This is not true, of course, but from this point on, I have to connect every single merge field again. I can't figure out what is happening or how to fix this issue. Thanks.

Having created MP3 music files and loaded them into the Player Flash drive in order of play, I have found them to be re-arranged when later played back. This causes tracks to be mixed out of sequence and I wondered if there's a way of fixing them in order of play.

I moved to another state a month ago and had to get new internet service, before then my laptop was running fine but as soon as I got new net it started disconnecting constantly. I thought it was my service but no other laptop in our house is having a problem and I called them and all was fine on their end. I've tried searching forums and the internet and I've done countless "fixes" but nothing has helped. I'm running Windows 7 x64 and my service provider is Xfinity (comcast). My computer will disconnect from the internet (yellow warning triangle over the internet signal icon in toolbar) and stay off until I reset through troubleshooting. This will happen sometimes not for hours and sometimes a few times a minute and I'm not sure what left to try. When I trouble shoot I get this:

Hey guys, I just bought a Sony laptop
Model Number: VGN-AW290

Microsoft® Windows Vista® Home Premium 64-bit

I have a cable modem and a wireless router from Linksys Wireless-G Linux Broadband Router
(WRT54GL). I am wondering if my problem is related to the cable modem, wireless router or something on my laptop. The reason why I am thinking it is something on my laptop is that my girlfriend has a laptop that is wireless also and she is able to stay connected to the net and mine drops. Now sometimes both of the connections from my laptop and hers both drop. Lately though, mine is the only one dropping.
Here are some things that I have on my laptop: Norton System Works 12.0, Spybot Seek and Destroy, Windows Defender turned off, UAC turned off.

I am just trying to see if others have had any problems and what might be the problem?
Any idea?

Thanks so much for any help!

A:Just bought a laptop and am having problems keeping connection?

Since sometimes both connections drop, here are some things you can try here.
Change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
Try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.
Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

Hey I've been having major problems with my Laptop.
Every ten or so minutes when my McAfee 2010 security suite disables real-time scanning it'll re-enable itself causing a lot of alarming pop-up boxes which is slowing my computer. Not sure whats causing it but it seems like malware.
Next theres this process which starts at windows start-up (DivxUpdate.exe), I don't think this is actually a part of divx. I've read somewhere that it is a form of autorun malware, it consumes 99% of my cpu majorly slowing down my computer, I think I may have similar malware on here that are problematic.
Also my firefox frequently say that there's an unresponsive script which temporarily freezes my whole computer and when I finally manage to get to task manager I have to end the process which seems to be using a regular amount of cpu and memory.
I made a topic exactly 1 month ago but nobody answered so I thought I'd make a new one seeing as the problems are progressing and building up.

Thanks for any help I'm provided with.

Just now getting Xbox Live for my Xbox (I know so late, better late than never), and have got a couple of problems. I bought the 12 month free subscription (includes game and headset). I got all the way to joining a game, but it keeps telling me no matter which I try that I don't have a certain map or something. I had already went and downloaded all the content avaible (3 map packs were downloaded by me). What else can I do, if I have already downloaded those three. I can even see those 3 map packs downloaded on my xbox harddrive if I explore the dashboard.

Finally, those map packs were free weren't they? Sorry if these have been asked before, couldn't find them searching the forums. Thanks as always to one of the best forums around!

Edit: I did put my actual birth date in when registering, and it said something about my parents having to confirm something, but nothing has been sent (I put my email down).

Hi, I have a hotmail account, but prefer to use OE for sending/receiving. I am on dialup and loading a page for every email is too slow.

This past week, every time I've opened OE, Ive had to synchronize the account to show the hotmail folders. Then every message in each folder has to be re-downloaded. 'Set program access and defaults' is set to use OE, but each time I return to that page, the settings have been changed.

Today I had OE open all afternoon while writing emails and all my folders disappeared again and a message appeared "there are not any folders to show for this account. would you like to view a list of available folders now? y/n". I dont know why this is happening, but I would just love my email folders to stay put for a change.

After that only about half the threads on each page were shown. I was viewing the world cup thread and it was showing only about the first 12 - 15 posts on each page.

Entering this site tonight a similar thing was happening. The top part of the page would load - from the red bar and above, but nothing below.

Hi, I'm using WinXP SP2 and I'm experiencing problems with IE7 lately . Actually, before I installed IE7 I'm already encountering problems with IE6, just thinking that if I install IE7 the problem might just be resolved. I also installed Mozilla Firefox and it's good, I didn't encounter any problems, I can open my webpages fine. The other software that I've also been having problems connecting to the internet with are Yahoo Messenger and Kazaa, I've never encountered problems with these softwares before, but now they are, after the problem with IE7. I'm using Kaspersky 6.0. I've also tried resetting using Restore Internet Explorer Settings but to no avail, I still cannot connect to the internet. I don't think its a router problem because I can connect with Firefox. What should I do?

Hello and welcome to TSF

We can try and help you with the IE and Yahoo problem, but we can not with the Kazza problem, as we do not give assistance with P2P programs. One thing I can say is i reccomend you uninstalling Kazza as you get a lot of infections from it. The program itself comes with malware.

What is the error message you get from Ie when you try and connect?

have you allowed IE though Kas firewall?

Hi Dreamboat,
Let me begin by saying I cannot access my email from this location.

In response to your question:
What we need is to be able to have three or four CSR's entering and updating mailing info in the database simultaneously.

Just adding a shortcut to each desk top will do that?

What do you suggest. They need this set up pronto and as you can tell, I am at a standstill right now.

Thanks for all your help,

I use the following code to login to a crystal report based arround an ms access database

<add key ="AccessDB" value="d:\goldmine\orielgold\Goldmine.mdb"/>

ConnectionInfo crInfo = new ConnectionInfo();

crInfo.DatabaseName = appSettings.Settings["AccessDB"].Value;
crInfo.ServerName = appSettings.Settings["AccessDB"].Value;

crInfo.UserID = "";
crInfo.Password = "";

I need to do this now to a secured version. I have modified the above code to

ConnectionInfo crInfo = new ConnectionInfo();

crInfo.DatabaseName = appSettings.Settings["AccessDB"].Value;
crInfo.ServerName = appSettings.Settings["AccessDB"].Value;

crInfo.UserID = "Goldmine";
crInfo.Password = "orielgold";

BUT how do I specify the location/path/name of the system.mdw file?

In previous version there was a .add property but this does not appear in VS2005/CR XI R2 system.

Hi This is my first time posting, and I have a lot of things causing problems with my computer, but to start off, here are my specs.

Windows 10 Pro
Intel Core i7-4770s CPU @ 3.10GHz
8 Gb Ram Corsaire Vengence 4x2
64 Bit
AMD Radeon HD 7700 GDDR5 1Gb (two of them w/ crossfire)
2 Tb 7200 Rpm Seagate HDD
z87-g45 Gaming Motherboard
Case: r5 Gaming Full size case
Power Supply: Corsair AX860
Fans: Rosewill Hyper Silence CPU fan, 2 stock front fans, 1 stock in back

So, to start off, I built this computer myself 2 years ago, and it has been running steadily without too many problems along the way, but earlier last year it began to have some much bigger problems.

Issue 1. Monitor Issues
I say this is a monitor issue, but i really doubt it has anything to do with the monitors them selves. What is happening every once in a while (about 3 times a week) the screens of my monitors will cut to black (it doesn't matter what I'm doing) and stay black for a few seconds before revealing the task bar at the bottom of the screen, and then the rest of my desktop slowly reveals itself. I've tried updating my video card drivers, but that hasn't helped.

Issue 2. Keyboard and Mouse Become unresponsive (System isn't frozen however)
Sometimes if I leave my pc idling in the lock screen, the keyboard will stop working, and when I come back, I can't log in. I can tell my computer is not frozen because the slideshow in the lock screen keeps moving and I can move my mouse (bu... Read more

running application (utilizes 4D database)
trying to open up PDF within the application and in this PDF there is a

the script is designed to save the pdf to the database, but i would also like it to close abobe itself after the save is completed.

the script is as follows


// get the URL to submit the form xfdf file to
var vT_SubmitURL = "";
var urlField = this.getField("Forms_SubmitURL");

// get the submit URL to use
vT_SubmitURL = urlField.value;

try {

also, this code does not work either

Is there any code which would allow me to close /exit Adobe after its been saved ?

A:Javascript - close adobe - within 4D databse

Just guessing but you might try app.execMenuItem("Close"). This would close if you opened with adobe. But you are opening in a browser?? Maybe you need to close the browser?

I'm attempting to import a database into Outlook from ACT 2000.

As I begin the process I receive a message sayng "MAPI error 0X80070057 has occured. Plesae try again."

I then receive a message saying "A translation step has fialed. Do you want to continue with the remianing tanslation steps?"

If I continue with the process, will I just end up missing some of the data, or is something more sinister in the background? The database has only 300 records, so I can manually check it for important data.

A:Importing databse into Outlook from ACT/MAPI error

This is usually some corrupt or incompatible data.

It could something as simple as an Email address that's not a real address (like a space) or it could be a bad character in another field.... or could be some damage in the database.

I have a general question that I would like to have answered, why is it that I can burn music CD's in WMP 11, but I can't burn music to DVD's? Especially with those Top 100 music series of 3GB's or more.

All or any help would be appreciated at this moment in time.

A:[SOLVED] records CD's, not DVD's in WMP 11

Are you burning the music on the DVD in Mp3 format? Normally when music is burned on a cd it is CDA format.

Try burning the music on the dvd with MP3 format but most cd players will not play MP3's also detect a DVD disk.

I'm not amazlingly educated when it comes to microsoft access and I wondered if any one could give me some advice on making a database in which I could have one table that files all my contacts and there information which links to somewhere in which I can see all invoice that relate to them. I was thinking this could be achieved by giving each contact an ID which I could select in order to bring up all the relevant invoice data

any help is greatly appreciated

A:Access: Creating a databse that links Contacts with invoices

Snakebitten, welcome to the forum.
If this is for a business then what you describe is OK, but may be a bit too basic.
What you may need is actually 3 tables, the extra table would be for the "Service" or "Items" that you provide, that will be itemised on the Invoice.
Yes you link the Invoices via the Customer ID and if using the other table I mentioned by those "item" Ids as well
Is this by any chance a "project" or assignment?

Hello. Hoping someone could help me. I finally finsihed my Access 97 application and placed it on a shared network drive. I now want to create 2 users, one that has Read/Write access and one that has Read Only access. I followed all the insturctions, creating a file using WRKGADM.EXE and setting up an ADMIN and users and assigning them each the appropriate access to certain forms, tables,etc. And this all works perfectly on my computer. Now if I go to another computer and open the same database, I'm not prompted to end any username or password and the database just opens allowing the user full access. How do I set it up so anyone who opens this database will be prompted to enter the secure database? And I assume once I do this then I can set Record Locking options? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have a new notebook I've had about 6 months now... an Acer Aspire 1640 notebook (1.8 ghz processor, 1gb ram, 160 gb hard drive, windows xp)... been running on my home wireless network for a while now.

Then today, 'all of a sudden' it doesn't detect any wireless networks (which is odd because I usually pick up 4+ as I'm in an apartment complex).

I turned off the PC, turned it back on and nothing. I right clicked on the network icon in the sys tray and clicked repair and get the following error:

Windows could not finish reparing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Connecting to the wireless network...

I also get a "Wireless Network Connection is not connected", wireless network unavailable bubble popup.

Also... I noticed a few weeks ago that I could no longer share files between my PCs as I once could. They all have access to the internet, but will not share, and they all show up under workgroup computers, and have select files and folders turned on, but the 'shared' files will not show up on the network.

Lastly... I have a Dell Inpiron 6000 notebook that is detecting the wireless network and the other available networks in the area... If I leave the Dell on too long, it will no longer access the internet, and I have to do a complete reboot to get it to reconnect and function correctly. Suggestions are appreciated.

We just upgraded our Windows NT domain to Windows 2000 Active Directory. After the upgrade, clients can log in ok but I'm getting errors for event 5781 that reads the following

Dynamic registration or deregistration of one or more DNS records failed because no DNS servers are available.
and 5788 event errors on my member servers:

Attempt to update HOST Service Principal Name of the computer object in
Active Directory failed. Access is denied

I think there was some sort of corruption in my NT domain before the upgrade that is resulting in failed attempts to add a second WIN2k domain controller or DHCP server after the upgrade.

Before the upgrade, the Win NT primary domain controller's hostname was "SERVER1". The WinNT NET BIOS domain name was DOMAIN. During the upgrade, I specified the windows active directory domain name should be "DOMAIN-NC.org" . After the upgrade, the host name of the Windows 2000 Active Directory Domain Controller was appended with the NETBIOS domain name to read SERVER1.DOMAIN. The active directory domain name is DOMAIN-NC.org which is what I wanted. The forward lookup zone in DNS (which is running on the DC) starts with the folder "DOMAIN-NC.org" domain. The folder contains SOA records, NS records and a few A records including one for the domain controller, but no SRV records for the domain. It also includes a subfolder called "DOMAIN" which got added by the IT guy before me I'm guessing beca... Read more
