Bluetooth won't work, skype won't work, ntflix won;t work

Q: Bluetooth won't work, skype won't work, ntflix won;t work

Alright guys, I have just refreshed my pc because I was having numerous problems with it and it turned out to be a bad stick of RAM. However, now I am having software issues. Whenever I try to make a call on the desktop version of skype, the program crashes. Whenever I try to open HP support assistant, the program crashes. When i am using the metro app version of skype I get a weird artifacting type problem on any of the buttons. I have this same problem in internet explorer and on Netflix. Netflix will not play on Chrome. It will play on IE, but with the button artifacting problems. My computer will not pair via bluetooth with my phone. What would be your recommended course of action? I don't know where to begin. I have tried updating drivers and the like but it has not helped.

Thank you

Preferred Solution: Bluetooth won't work, skype won't work, ntflix won;t work

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Bluetooth won't work, skype won't work, ntflix won;t work

Microsoft zune won't work either. It crashes when trying to set up.

Hello there!

So this problem started yesterday afternoon. I didn't download anything, but suddenly I was unable to browse the web. I tried all the web browsers I have but no websites would load. But skype and teamspeak still work.

Any help?


A:Web browsers do not work, but skype and teamspeak work

Open IE, then click on Tools->Internet Options. From there, click on the Connections tab then the LAN settings button. Under "Proxy Server", make sure the checkbox labeled "Use a proxy server for your LAN" is UNCHECKED.

What on EARTH process is always running in the background to make my hard drive chatter away for literally nearly 3-5 minutes after a bootup...and we're talking with a FRESH install!....Some something is running a LOT in the background but task manager is absolutely worthless in pointing out what is going on...It even gets to the point where , after having the Edge browser opened and perusing the internet for awhile, things get so bogged down, and windows is too stupid to tell me exactly WHY it's bogged down, things get to where even a mouse click is delayed upwards of 10 seconds! lol. Sometimes things completely freeze and pushing the reset button is the only way out...I've gone as far as downloading Avasts 'emergency startup' disc and booting from it , thinking there might be a virus, but it found nothing (although I'm wondering if it's loading a small portion of windows, which if it is, and a virus or malware is in that small portion, booting to the disc and running the anti-virus software is pointless...maybe I should try it with a linux based emergency disc?) ....

Hi guys. I just bought my mom a new laptop 3 months ago. An Acer Aspire 5517. It worked like a charm for the first month, all she really uses it for is Skype and web browsing. Okay so now Skype hasn't worked for over a month. The little status button that should be green when your active never loads, it just keeps turning. Every once in a while it will work, and I try to make a call, and after 10 rings I want to hang up, but I can't, I click end call, but it keeps ringing indefinitely. Even if I force shut down skype, it keeps ringing. Skype tech support told me to install the new beta version of skype, it didn't help, still my status won't turn green. Also if someone tries to call me, I can't click on accept video call, or whatever it's called. I have re-installed skype 4 times. I have the same wireless connection. I get the same speeds as before. No hardware or software has been installed besides Skype, Mozilla, YIM. So I thought, okay I will install YIM for her to make video calls. I install it, sign in, when I try to go into webcam settings, the program freezes, and I have to shut down the program. Please guys, help me, she is driving me crazy.BTW, her lappy has AMD Athlon TF-20, 1.60 Ghz, 64bit, 2 Gigs Ram.Acer AV runs every night.

A:Skype & YIM just won't work

This can be infuriating alright. I don't know if I can offer much help, but it seems that Skype is having trouble signing in. You could try reregistering with a slightly different username and see if that works.

Have you checked that Skype is in the list of allowed programs in your firewall settings? I know that this should not have changed, but Hey, we ?are talking a computer here, LOL, strange things happen. Also check that Skype is set to start automatically at boot up - if it is going to take a long time to log in then it may as well be doing that while your Mum is doing other things.

Good luck

PLEASE HELP!!! On skype the person on the other end can just BARELY hear me, I can hear them perfectly. I did the skype test call where my voice is recorded and played back to me and the same thing happened, I could BARELY hear my voice.

A:Microphone does not work with skype

Are you using the built internal mic in the PC or are you using an external mic?

Also, do you have the default Dell installed sound driver or do you have the generic Windows installed "HD Audio Codec"? If you don't have the Dell driver that is the first step.

There are many different Dell Inspiron 15 models. What is the exact model of yours?

Can anyone help. I am unable to use my webcam on Skype. I have gone through the checklist - checked webcam listing USB2.01.3MUVC webcam. Downloaded latest version of Direct X. Have updated all my windows. Signed into Skype, tick enabled in port 80 & 44c as an alternative. tick enabled in UPnp. Web cam came on yesterday but now I get message "Your webcam isn't supported by Skype try changing your drivers or change to Skype webcam (it is a new webcam on Asus) and also the message comes up can't start video recorder, check you have a valid Direct X installation. Not sure what to do now I would be grateful for any suggestion. When I go to lifeframe it says it cannot start as camera is in use by another camera. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

A:can't get webcam to work on skype

Windows version? Make/model of webcam? Not sure I can help but my original installation was a Logictech webcam on Windows XP & it had problems because the Logictech software installed a 'helper' service that needed to be disabled before Skype could use the Webcam. Now on Windows 7 laptop with built-in Webcam & 'it just works' with Skype so not sure I can help, but if this is a LogiTech Webcam then I'd look for & disable Webcam-related services, then try it again.

Ok, I got a new computer back in May, and for about a month I used Mozilla. Then it crapped out on me around September or so... I figured, who cares, I have homework to do, I'll use Internet Explorer. No Biggie.

Now, lately, I've been trying to download things like Yahoo messenger or Skype, and it simply won't let me connect to the server to install those things. So I downloaded them from filehippo or w/e. I sign in with my SN, it won't let me establish a connection with Yahoo or Skype. Grrrr...

I'm starting to think the 2 issues are related. No mozilla (happened after installing a patch or update I believe) and now can't connect to certain online applications.

I use a Dell Inspiron I believe with Windows 7... any advice?

A:Mozilla won't work... now I can't get on Yahoo/skype

I don't know what you mean by "properties seem to be good", but have you set your Tools -> Audio settings to select your headphones?

And your headphones are an actual entry in "playback devices", so that Skype's audio settings can choose it?

So I thought I'd give Skype a go last night. Called a friend and while the picture was fine he couldn't hear me. I couldn't hear him either but I'm sure that something on his side as my laptop plays music just fine. Anyone have a checklist of sorts that I can use to trouble shoot my sound/mic problems?


A:Audio doesn't work during Skype.

Hi, as I recall, not having used Skye for a while, there is a audio/ video test that you can perform
before connecting to check everything is working. If not, go to the control panel, hardware and sound in Win 7 and check your mic is setup correctly.

Hello, I hope someone on here can help me with this issue. Ok here it goes... I just bought this used laptop. I bought it so I could speak to friends & family on Skype. Before buying the laptop the previous owner was attempting to connect to his wireless internet connection & it would pick up the signal and then loose the internet connection. The computer seemed as if it would freeze for a few seconds when attempting to open up the Internet Explorer browser. The screen was blank and a swirling circle would show next to the pointer. Seemed as it was a bad internet connection or at least that's what he told me. After a few tries we got it connected to the internet and I bought it.

I assumed Internet Explorer 8 was crappy so I downloaded Google Chrome. The speed on the laptop really picked up and it rarely gave me any slow or freezing issues only when I used Google Chrome.

NOW... I downloaded Skype and soon after I tried using it as the laptop comes with an integrated camera. When I double click the Skype Icon on my desktop the Skype window opens for a second and closes immediately. I have to try and open the program 2 to 4 times for Skype to open and get me to the sign in section. Once signed in I attempt to add contacts & not even 5 seconds into it the program freezes. It says program not responding & a screen pops up which says Skype not responding close window. I never get to use Skype and I'm not sure if it's a non sufficient space issue ... Read more

I'm connected a server and the internet on it is acting weird
My normal browsers (firefox + Chrome) are randomly stopping and refusing to load pages while my Tor browser (for facebook,etc) continues to work as normal. Sometimes Skype is affected but I'm not sure if it's directly related. If i reconnect the cable then it starts working again for a short time.
This has only started happening recently. If had problems with it last week but that was because AVG decided to block any connections to either of my adapters...
I think it may be related to the DNS but i'm not really to sure.
If you have any idea what's causing this and even better a solution be expecting a cookie in the post

A:Why does Tor internet and skype work but not my normal browsers?

It may help to reset Winsock for windows 7. This is sometimes required if TCP/IP gets corrupted.

1. Click start, type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd.exe, click Run as administrator, and then press Continue.

2. Type netsh winsock reset at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Note If the command is typed incorrectly, you will receive an error message. Type the command again. When the command is completed successfully, a confirmation appears, followed by a new command prompt. Then, go to step 3.

3. Type exit, and then press ENTER. You should be prompted to reboot, if not you should reboot and test.

You can change to a different DNS server by going into your routers set up page and making the changes there.
Google's DNS work good. and

If you can post a screen shot of your ipconfig/all after making these changes it might be helpful.

Hi all,
i'm a newbie on W&, did few searches but didn't find a solution to my problems.

I own a Sony Vaio VGC-JS1E, the all in one PC. Used to run under Vista and was working properly. I decided to move to W7 and installed the ultimate version after a complete format. Well, happy of the OS but i'm encountering 2 very annoying problems:

1) Internet connection is super slow, drops often with any web browser i use
2) Skype calls are very poor quality, bad trasmission, poor audio quality....

With Vista everything was running smoothly...

In the device manager i have under "other devices" 2 not working links: a) base system device and b) Unknown device; tried to source drivers from Sony website but unsuccessfully.

Have any you you idea of how i can fix my issues? Internet and audio in particular? I'm struggling...

Any help would be really appreciated

The title pretty much says it all. I'm honestly at the end of my rope. Device manager replies all is well, yet sound stopped working overnight.

It isn't muted,I'm not that oblivious.

I own Advanced System Care Pro ( and consequently, Driver Booster ) so I have already all of my drivers up to date, as well as any other problems I might have had.

Used a bunch of other scanners to figure out the problem to no avail. Plugging some headphones in also doesn't cut it, so it made me think that perhaps the hardware was actually fine and some software conflict was the cause of the problem. I have no freaking clue anymore, should I just get mad and yell at my computer for an hour or so to relieve stress now??

A:Laptop audio refuses to work, all devices work properly, sound isn't muted. Help?

First we need to know the EXACT make and model number of the laptop in question. Secondly the only place you should be looking for drivers for you laptop is the laptop manufacturers support website. Driver scanners really are not helpful.

I would like to add some info here as I had the above problem, and couldn't find the answer anywhere except on a site that wanted money! Aaargh! The nerve of it!

But I saw a topic here with the exact same problem, although the solution was quite different. (Here: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/944096-taskkill-does-not-work-batch.html )

I can't recall now why I thought about the firewall, but as you guys have helped me in the past, I'd like to leave some information here for people who Google the following problems and think they have found a site with a solution, only to find that the site wants your credit card number. Bah!

Here are the errors I had:

1. Net stop: System Error 5 has occurred. Access is Denied

2. Tasklist or Taskkill: The RPC server is unavailable

Both of my problems were caused by the Comodo firewall on a new PC running XP SP3.
The startup command file calls various other command files and I got the above errors when they executed the Net, Taskkill and Tasklist commands.

When I entered the commands (net stop, taskkill, tasklist) at a command prompt, they worked.

The problem was because the Comodo firewall had a "Defence +" setting for a "Sandbox" that was enabled.
When I disabled the sandbox, everything worked as I expected, i.e. as on my old PC that I was replacing.

I hope this helps someone in the future.

Hello... I have a Lenovo Thinkpad W500, purchased some years ago. It was running Windows 7 Pro. Any discs that might have come with it are long lost. I made the disastrous decision to upgrade to Windows 10. To do this, I used "Create Windows 10 installation media" from this this link. I put it on a USB flash drive, configured my W500 BIOS to load from "USB HDD" first, and proceeded.  After several attempts, it finally managed to load what appears to be Windows 10 (clean install w/o Product Key, for now) to the point where I gave it my Micosoft ID and it even loaded the correct wallpaper photo, etc, and there was a Taskbar which briefly appeared before hiding. But after that, nothing... integrated mouse touchpad unresponsive (in fact, no arrow pointer on screen at all).  I know the mouse pad is working, because if I insert the "W10 installation media" flash drive, I can select "Repair PC" instead of "Install W10" can then get a command prompt (with a arrow pointer that moves around). But none of the other options seem to work (it detects none of my W7 recovery partitions, W7 Restore points... nothing. Startup repair reports back nothing. I don't think I am eligible for Lenovo Recovery Media, as the eligibility page does not recognize my Thinkpad S/N. At this point, I'd be happy to just re-install W7 (I have a valid Product Key), but I can't even "Submit digital download recovery order" since Lenovo won't recognize my S/N.

Friend's computer started up with a Critical Warning image and telling him to download this antispyware thing in order to remove it. Some files that I found connected with this are: FNTCACHE, critical_warning.html, AVR09, winhelper.dll, and 41. I tried running DDS but to no success. Same with Rootkit Repealer. I managed to install and run Hitman Pro 3.5 and Malwares Bytes Antimalware, but both were stopped after a few seconds within scanning. Afterwards, they didn't work at all. Couldn't install Superantispyware or CCleaner. Spybot Search and Destroy was changed to read only and Ad-Aware wouldn't work. Any suggestions? Is there any program out there that manages to get rid of this?

A:Scanners won't work, DDS won't work, and all programs that involve removing files becomes blocked after being used once

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

My problem is that I cannot access the internet through my LAC. I enable the connection and it will connect and send packets, but will not receive any packets. I have no problems enabling my wireless connection and connecting to the internet. The wireless does like to disconnect and reconnect about 3 or 4 times an hour which is another problem I have. I believe this LAC problem started around the same time I was trying to get shared music between my computers on iTunes. I was trying to allow for connection on port 3689, but everything I did was unsuccessful. Any suggestions for any of these problems I'm having?

I cannot get Windows Media Encoder 9 to work at all at home, but I have no problems with it at work, so I know I'm not trying to do something with it that it can't handle.

At home, every time I try to convert either an AVI or a VOB to WMV, either using the wizard or the custom settings, it lets me get through it all and then, when it starts trying to encode, it throws up the message:
"Windows Media Encoder has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. ..."

It never gives me any more information than this, just crashes and closes. I've tried repairing it through the control panel, as well as completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but it hasn't helped.

At home I'm running Windows XP Media Center. At work, where I've never had it crash, I'm running Windows XP Professional. Is there something in Media Center that causes it to crash? Is there any patch I can download or thing I can do to get it to work on my home computer?

Thanks for your help.

A:Windows Media Encoder doesn't work at home, does at work

I'm currently having the same problem . I open the .vob file set the output folder , settings etc etc . just as it was about to start converting , WME just stops and crashes . I use windows xp home edition so if your company's xp professional can make it work im thinking it is something in the professional edition which allows it to work not something in our edition that doesnt allow it to work. Are there any alternatives for encoding a video? i dont have much cash right now so i was hoping i might find some freeware alternatives . thanks

It's supposed to work with keeping finger on item some time, then release after that (it will open menu or just right-click). That doesn't work. It spoils all of the touch screen mode experience. (Surfing Youtube, for example) How do I get it to work? Please note that some areas it works, some it doesn't (e.g., on this website and on Youtube and on Facebook, it doesn't). Please answer. EDIT: It is the Chrome browser. Any idea how I can fix that?

I have recently built a new website, i tried all links and they worked fine before making it live on Filezilla.

I was wondering if anyone knows the reason for it or even better the fix for the solution.

The files are DWG. which is a version of CAD. PDF's, Jpegs, ect. all work except DWG's.



A:Downloads Work Offline But Once Website Is Live they Dont Work

Yours is not Windows 7 related issues.
