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.)

Hey, I recently purchached a new SSD for my L440.  At the moment I'm having troubles to install Windows 7 SP1 with 64bit with the UEFI mode. The UEFI bios is set to UEFI only, with CSM enabled and the secure boot disabled. Of course I made sure that my USB stick has a UEFI bootloader in the right place. Everything works fine with my Deskop PC, however, I can not boot from my L440. Any suggestions ?

Hi,I have replaced CD-ROM by HDD Caddy with SSD (Samsung 850 EVO 250GB) in my Lenovo ThinkPad L440 (20ASS3GT0) as a second storage device (not one with the OS). When I'm trying to start the system, I'm getting a message "Configuration changes - restart the system." and the system reboots again and again. What is more, I can't access the BIOS any more - pressing F1 does not work. Updating to the newest version of BIOS (1.85) does not help. After removing HDD Caddy everything works fine. I have tried some of the configurations below: Removed the battery, pressed the power button for 10-15 sec. and rebooted with AC Adapter connected - still got message "Configuration changes - restart the system."Removed HDD from standard SATA port and connected it using HDD Caddy - cannot boot into the system. There is no message "Configuration changes...", HDD is detected but it is not on the list with bootable devices (there is only one option to boot over the LAN).HDD Caddy connected with no storage device - boot into the system with no problem.The problem is, that I need two storage devices - one for the OS and second one (using HDD caddy) for another data. Could anyone help me to solve that issue?

I am setting up a new wireless router and new laptop.

The laptop sees the WLAN (name) in Control Panel -> Networking -> Sharing and Network, but this WLAN (name) does not show up in the laptop's 'WLAN selector list' when I click on the network icon that's in the system tray.

I hope my description, above, makes sense. If so, does this problem description suggest an area of configuration that I have done incorrectly?

Thanks for any hints.

A:WLAN in Control Panel but not in system tray WLAN list

The new router needs to be setup with the SSID not hidden. Also the router needs to be set for the same type of wireless that the devices use.

It is also helpful when you post these kind of questions, to include system info in your profile and also manufacture and model of the router.

Hey!

Ok so here is the problem, a month and a half ago the laptop wouldn't turn on, it goes and gets fixed and the power supply wasn't returned, today we finally receive the power supply (which caused 1 month of the waiting).

So I plug it up and everything goes on fine and dandy, however the laptop will not receive an Internet connection and it says that the wireless LAN is disabled, the laptop is a Presario v6000 Compaq which has a button on the front of the laptop which enables and disabled the wireless LAN, the button is currently set to enabled however the button is jammed on enable and it has an Amber light, so I can't turn it on and off. I went to device manger then network adapters and acording to that, the WLAN is enabled but the laptop is telling me it's disabled!

is there any way I can fix this? or will it have to get sent away again?

I hope the question makes sense, I'm only 16 so I'm not the best when it comes to computers, I also badly need the laptop fixed because I need it for school and I am currently posting this question using my iPhone.
 

A:Laptop says WLAN is disabled, device manager says WLAN is enabled!

Well, if the button isn't toggling the wireless state, you may have to send it away again. What do you mean the button is "jammed"?

A:Wlan problem

Even if you meant Bytes instead of packets that's an awful lot!

I suppose that wireless interference or a bad wireless driver could cause a lot of retransmission, but shouldn't be that much.

Try with ethernet instead and/or try Safe Mode with Networking. If ethernet does not exhibit the same behavior then you are apparently dealing with a wireless issue. If Safe Mode with Networking does not exhibit the same behavior then something is running in normal mode.

My suspicions include that you are are using a torrent or else you have some serious malware.

Hello. Since the anniversary update of Windows 10 in August I have a problem of my wi-fi network adapter losing connection every 5-10 minutes (cable works perfectly). When I run the diagnostics it says "Default gateway is not available" and resets the adapter but the problem keeps reoccurring. From time to time it says that there's a problem with drivers or the cable is damaged but the drivers are up to date and I don't how the cable could be the issue with wireless connection. I have already tried all the things suggested on the Internet like: changing power saving options, updating drivers (as well as downloading directly from Lenovo Support page), uninstalling and reinstalling the adapter, command prompt (netsh winsock reset, netsh int ip reset, ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew, ipconfig /flushdns) and all other common suggestions to the issue. Nothing helps. Would appreciate any help or advise. Otherwise, the only option which I see is replacement of wlan card (laptop is still on warranty). Thank you.

Hey guys. Since lately I've been experiencing a problem with my wireless network.
The problem is that suddenly it just stops the connection, and then I can find the network again unless I totally restart the computer. It happens quite often, and it's starting to get on my nerves because I use this laptop at my school.

My WLAN Card is :
Atheros AR5008x..

Could it be that my WLAN card is broken or something?

Thanks in forward,

The first thing that I would look at is your wireless router. Go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest upgrade to the router's firmware. Install that on the router and see if that fixes your problem.

Hi, I have a brand new Acer Aspire 5532 Laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium and I'm trying to connect to my Netgear Router I have in my house, I have 6 other computers in the house and all connect fine, except the Acer, the WEP key was accepted at setup, but now when I pick my router off of the Wireless Connections List, a dialog box with on it Network Authentication and it's asking for a user name and password which I have no idea what they are, I do have a user name and password for getting into the Router settings, but just to simply connect onto my network only requires a WEP key, no user names, no passwords. It is starting to do my head in as it will not connect without this phantom username and password. Incidentally I have already tried the username and password for my router and the username and password for my broadband which was only fed into the router, no other computer on my network has asked for this before

Hello,

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Computer Amilo LA 1703 laptop. It comes with a built-in WLAN card.
Unfortunately, I don't know why, but Windows XP does not recognize it for some reason. When I press Fn + F2 (combination for turning the card on/off), the little led lamp at the bottom-left corner turns on. I consider that as a proof that the card works fine. The problem is that the card is not listed in the device manager. Under the Network Adapters category there is only a VIA Fast Ethernet II card, which is as far as I know for LAN connections.

I've downloaded drivers from the manufacturer's website, I think I've installed them properly, but still cannot make it work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you checked the system requirements for the card? Many are win-cards that use Windows APIs to do some of the work for them, and require a certain speed processor to keep up...

Also, have you uninstalled the software and drivers, rebooted, then reinstalled? That frequently helps with problems. Check the installation instructions for the card- some need the drivers installed before the software, some need the software before the drivers, and others really don't care but specify a preferred method.

Hope this helps. BTW- Welcome to Techspot!

Hi
I have a new (roughly 25 day old) HP DV9700t notebook computer running Vista. It has an Intel 4956AGN WLan adapter installed.

There is a strange problem affecting it:
* when i run the laptop on battery power, the WLan works fine
* however, when i plug in the ac adapter; the WLan gets disabled

I 've tried various things
* i've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers several times to no avail
* i RMAed the WLan adapter and had HP ship me a new one (actually, a 3945BG); replacing it didn't help
* in power management; i unchecked the box that allows the computer to stop the WLan to save power
* i removed the battery, discharged the computer and restarted. this worked once for a day, then things went back to normal (i.e. broken)

I believe the computer is set up to turn of WLan when a lan cable is connected. I looked in the BIOS to see if I could turn that off; but it doesn't seem to exist. I could be completely wrong; but it almost feels like it's treating a ac adapter connection event like a lan cable connection event.
I am about to send my notebook back to HP for repairs -- but I really cannot afford to give up my computer for a couple of weeks at this time. Can anyone help in any way to fix this problem?

Thx a lot

I installed a D-Link (DWL-122) wireless USB adapter so that my XP now becomes a hot spot for my PDA, which has a Socket SDIO Low Power WLAN card sticking out of the SD slot on top. PDA is the ppular iPAQ 2215.
The D-Link guys walked me through the setup of the desktop one, but the Socket people are ignoring me.
So far the 2 machines ping each other well (whatever THAT means). But the last step is the killer. How do I use ActiveSync between the 2, and how do I set it up to go down to the coffee shop and read my e-mail. The problem I receive right now is that the PDA has the wrong server name for the desktop. I don't even know what that name is or where to find it.

Hi,
My internet is through WLan while I have to connect to the intranet using the lan. I want all my Internet traffic in wlan. But it's not working. Whenever I enable both wlan and LAN, all the Internet requests go to LAN and so can't use Internet.

How to configure my system (with XP SP3) so that all the internet traffic/requests use WLan as first choice instead of LAN ?

I'm having a near identical problem:
Perfect connectivity to Network & Internet via LAN (Ethernet)
Perfect connectivity to Network (Including ALL Hardware (Router, Switch, Printer, NAS, other computers)) via WLAN (both the onboard mini-PCIe card as well as an external USB WiFi Adapter)
ABSOLUTELY NO INTERNET via WLAN (same results for both onboard and external adapters)

Here's my computer model and some specs:
Compaq CQ61-420US
Win7 Ultimate x64
4GB RAM
Atheros AR9285 (Latest Driver Installed: v8.0.0.172)
FireFox 3.6.12
IE8 x32 & x64 Versions (8.0.7600.16385)

I do NOT have ANY Toolbars in my browsers. I do have some Add-ins in FireFox which "could" affect internet connectivity but I believe they are configured properly and as I've already stated, I have PERFECT Internet connectivity via LAN, just NONE via WLAN.
Besides all of the "Obvious" things to try, I've also uninstalled this card & driver multiple times. Allowed Windows to re-install AND forced manual re-installation and installed the driver application from Atheros. I've also performed multiple "IPConfig/release...renew" attempts which have not produced a solution. Windows Network Diagnostic gives this result: "Your broadband modem is experiencing connectivity issues". NOT TRUE but went thru their troubleshooting steps anyway to no avail.

I'm completely stumped as to what's causing this problem and how to remedy it. I'm fai... Read more

hello i'm trying to connect a HP DV5 with atheros AR5007 wireless adapter.
the network i'm trying to connect is with WPA-Personal AES encryption.
but when i try to connect the security type changes automatically to WAP.
with other laptops there are no problem and they recognize the WPA-Personal encryption and connect.

checked the password, its the right password.
tried to select WPA-personal AES in the network settings but still
it says that there is a problem with the key i've input.

this happens on Vista and on 7 build 7100, drivers updated, computer can connect to other routers.

what's going on?

A:Problem connecting to WLAN with WPA-Personal: AES

Hi,
I too have experienced issues with WPA-personal or other WPA protocol when connecting from windows7 OS to a WPA enabled router.
Changed the router security to WEP, it works !!

Find it hard that Windows missed this thing with vendors like dell and linksys

A:I got realtek WLAN driver problem

Hi! Welcome to the Seven Forums. If I can't help you I'm sure someone will come along shortly that can.

There are many versions of the A505 Toshiba model. Are you sure you have a Realtek card? Perhaps you have an Atheros card and need the drivers for that instead?

I understand it can be confusing:

Hello,
WLAN itself works fine. Without any encryption, all PC users can access the network and Internet. After setting up WEP encryption in the modem and the PC, only the main user can get access to network. For all the other users, Windows Vista asks for a password or key and nobody knows what Vista actually means by that?! Which key? The one given to the PC as the initial key for WEP?! It cannot be viewed?

What is the procedure the enable network access for the other users of the PC?

Google does not reveal any help for this problem...

Hello.

I have a "minor" issue creating a bridge between my wireless and ethernet connections on my laptop.

Since my desktop doesn't have a wireless card, I figured I'd use my laptops wireless by bridging the connections, which works fine. But whenever I plug the ethernet cable into my laptop from my desktop, my wireless shuts down.

Anyone know how to fix this?
 

A:Solved: Problem bridging wlan and lan

I ended up checking almost everything except my BIOS. Turns out LAN/WLAN switching was enabled, and the laptop shut down the wireless every time a wired connection was detected. Marking as solved now.
