Recently I've bought USB hub, one of this cheap, unbranded 4usb ones from ebay. When I'm connecting my usd disk drive to it, the drive just don't show up in my computer. It's like this hub is not providing enough power to the disk(it certainly sounds like it). So as I don't want to spend my money unnecessarily can you recommend some reliable USB hub please? It doesn't have to be usb3.0 although it would be nice and I would appreciate if you can recommend something I can buy in UK since I do live here. Also, will buying some branded hub, like this one from Amazon would deprive me from this issues?
Edit: I do have Toshiba port replicator with usb port and when I connect my disk to it there is no problem. Hard drive works as it should.
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.)
Pretty much any name brand is good and if you can find room for it an external powered one (wall-wart) is even better.
My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.
Please help me out.
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.

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.
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?
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
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.
What could cause this?

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?
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
I'm not too technically minded so I'll explain this as best I can and hope somebody can help me out.
A few weeks ago my media player stopped working - it flashes onto the screen for a split second and then disappears or just doesn't respond at all. Also the HP Advisor isn't working properly and keeps saying "an error ocurred" links don't work on the help section so I went to the HP site to try to get help there. I opened one of these instant help chat boxes and a technician phoned me, said he could help etc mentioned a one off charge and it took me half an hour to find out how much etc. He had remote access to my laptop and was running scans that found several thousand problems and now I'm worried that he may have "planted" something in my pc. When I told him I couldn't pay what he was asking he finished the call pretty quick and left me to it.
How do I fix my problem and how do I found out if he left something malicious on my pc? I'm scared to do internet banking now :-(
Those are questions that you should be asking HP support, IMO.
As for what your problem with Media Player...what version is installed?...
ASUS Notebook G60Vx Series
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
A few days ago my internet suddenly stopped working. I plugged in the ethernet cord and everything worked fine. Checking the properties in the device manager showed the device was working properly, I also tried resetting it to make sure it was enabled but it did not work.
Upon troubleshooting, the "Windows Network Diagnostic" said the problems was that the Wireless adapter was not turned on. Using the switch on the front of the laptop as well as the function keys does nothing. Usually a graphic pops up showing if the WiFi is on or off, changinging transparent to show the WiFi is disabled. Now when I turn the switch on it always appears transparent, effectively going from off to off
So I know the computer reads both the function keys and the switch on the front but both methods never actually turns the adapter on. I just finished a system restore and nothing has changed
Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
Maybe the switch or adapter is defective. Some other ideas ...
Do you have an ASUS utility to also turn the wireless on/off? (I have an HP utility on one of my laptops that will individually control the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if the physical switch is on.)
In Device Manager right click on the adapter - Properties - Advanced tab. Sometimes there is a Property in there that allows turning the adapter on/off.
If the card is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace the card several times to fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems.

I got a new Kingston Datatraveler 100 16GB pendrive. It is working perfectly on both my desktops at home. However on my laptop its failing to write data. It can read and copy data from the pendrive perfectly, however, when I try to write data on it, it writes a certain amount on a very slow speed (500-900kb/s the normal would be 10mb/s) and then completely stops, giving a file not found error (options are Try Again, Skip, Cancel).
Sometimes it manages to transfer at a high speed and suddenly stops at 90% and stops transferring at all. After a while the pendrive completely disappears from the system and I have to replug it to appear again. The file is now on the pendrive but its corrupted as it only transferred 90%...
Does anyone know what's going on? Why is my pendrive acting so weirdly? It works perfectly on other computers except on my laptop it fails to write?
If it works on the desktops, then it is not the pendrive. You might want to look at your laptop more. Have you tried different USB ports on your laptop? Are the USB 2.0 high speed ports, or just 1.0?

I just bought an asus ul50vt laptop(windows 7) without a hard drive. I bought a new hard drive separately which is a Fujitsu 2.5" 120gb. Everything on and in the laptop is all manufacture so nothing has been replaced or changed.
So heres the issue. I popped the hdd in my asus and powered it on an I got missing bootmgr. So I put in the windows 7 dvd(burnt not original) but it just attempts to read and automatically goes and tries to boot from the new hdd. And it's goes in the same cycle. So I had the idea to disconnect the hdd in my desktop and connect the new hdd to my desktop. I booted from the same windows 7 installation DVD but this time the the desktop gave me the option to boot from dvd(it said press any key to boot from cd) so I installed windows 7, went through the whole process and used it like a brand new computer. I shut the desktop down, disconnected the new hdd and reconnected it to my asus. It started to boot but when it got to "starting windows", it froze for about 1/2 second and the blue screen came on for mayne 1/4 of a second at the most. Then restarted itself into the same cycle. I tried the windows 7 DVD but it again Acted like it read it and went straight to the hdd into the cycle again.

Hi there, Welcome to SF
Couple of points, firstly i dont think theres anything wrong, i believe the only problem is that your machine is not booting from the disc its trying to boot the HDD which was initially blank and then from another machine hence the blue screen.
All you need to do is get the HDD in the target machine and get it to boot from disk by hitting F2 on startup and selecting it, then you should be good for claen install formatting drive on the way Clean Install Windows 7 guidelines here
I recently purchased an ASUS A555DG-EHFX to take over for my wife's Win7 ASUS K50IJ-BBZ5 (both are 64-bit).
Obviously getting Windows 10 up and running out of the box was a breeze. Configuring WLAN connectivity was also easy, even though I have a hidden SSID and access control on devices on the router. Even getting Office up and running was fine - just uninstalled from the old computer, downloaded an installer file from Microsoft, using the product key, and that was fine.
The one hiccup has been getting my files and configuration settings (such as browser history and passwords and cookies) from the old computer to the new.
I have read that one can run Windows Easy Transfer on a Win7 machine, which I did (to an external HD), then copy the migwiz and migration folders from the system32 subfolder of the Win7 machine, to somewhere on the new machine, and run the migwiz.exe program from the migwiz folder.
This appeared to "know what it was doing" - it identified the user profiles captured in the transfer data, and allowed me to select which ones to transfer.
But when the process completed, I can't find any of the files from the Win7 laptop, and I can't see any of the profiles and configurations - the files themselves, or evidence that the computer is accessing them.
Also, the old laptop had a C/D HD partition, as does this, and it was pretty much program files on C and data (.docx and .xlsx files, etc.) on the D partition.

Have been having this problem for a while now.
Every so often, the headhphone jack on my laptop just stops working after hours and hours of the laptop being on.
The built-in speakers of the laptop work fine. What happens is that while the computer is in use (after some random amount of time), any hardware plugged into the headphone jack of the laptop will not playback sound. This includes headphones, speakers and the like. The sound device manager in control panel shows sound being output, and if the headphones/speakers are disconnected, the audio plays fine on the built-in speakers on the laptop.
I haven't been able to figure out what exactly causes this problem. I have tried resinstalling the driver several times. I am 100% sure it isn't the headphones of the speakers that I use as I use these speakers and headphones on many other devices (phone, tablet etc.)
The only way that this issue gets fixed is if the computer is shut down and then rebooted (a restart doesn't work, the computer has to literally lose power for the problem to be fixed).
It seems very intermittent and I'm not sure how to approach this problem
One idea would be a look the power plan in use. If you are running with the default Balanced power plan you may be seeing that nterfere by conserving battery power temporarily turning the audio off being a constant drain. Another thought could be a result of the onboard audio chip itself getting too warm where the hardware protection circuit will then come in and deactivate all sound. That is usually seen as far as the cpu temp as well as other major components. The audio being onboard would also be monitored by the bios not so much by Windows.
The other possible cause of losing sound would be the headphone jack or the board end having a cold solder point getting warm and expanding just enough to break the connection until cooled off. The complete shutdown of power would tend to suggest a temp or regulation issue where either the power plan or temp monitoring would have to be watched. And one more thing would be setting the laptop on a fan cooled stand or effective notebook cooling pad to draw heat away from the unit if you are not already using one. Laptops are known to get quite warm with extended use since everything is packed into a tight space with the typical serious lack of air flow unlike the usual desktop with front, rear, and side or top case fans in use if not water cooled.
You have some things to consider in the list of things there. Increased overall cooling, not planning to use the laptop for extended periods of time which can allow for something to overheat i... Read more

Welcome to the Seven Forums.
It is not hard to replace the keyboard.
See these search results for pricing and "hot to" videos.
I have been having problems keeping my touchpad and keyboard functioning after taking my laptop apart. In the first instance, my touchpad stopped working a couple weeks after the dissection. I took the computer back apart, and re-secured the touch pad jack in the motherboard connector, and it worked again.
The second instance, which I havent been able to solve, is the keyboard keys. Certain keys will stop working after some short time after taking apart the computer, usually a couple hours to a couple days.
I have tried readjusting the keyboard jack in the motherboard connector, also have tried turning off the computer and taking out the battery for a while.
Its an HP Pavilion dv5000 with Windows XP
Also Ive noticed that all of the keys that aren't functioning are clustered in one area on the keypad.

This laptop has been owned for a few years, I'm not quite sure how many since it isn't mine. My phone was propped next to the laptop and fell on it, and the screen when dark. Tried restarting it but the screen still didn't work, this went on for around a day. Eventually when I tried to restart it, the laptop would begin to boot but shut down two or three seconds into a power up. Tried a hard reset, but it did nothing. After the hard reset the computer started, but froze on the Windows start up screen. Afterwards it still quit booting after two or three seconds. Stayed away from it for a week or so trying to figure out what was wrong with it/where I could get help. Came back to it today to try and it turned on again, but this time it stopped on the initial dark screen and now it is a black screen with green lines all around it and some blue lines. Do I need to take this laptop to a nearby technician or is all hope lost for it?

1. My computer had some malware issues and some browser redirect issues (probably from before the more recent malware). I ran a full MBAM scan to get rid of Internet Security. I also ensured the .exe and .dll files were no longer present. I also ran a HijackThis scan and did manual removals. So far it looks like Internet Security is gone but I'm still getting redirects, youtube doesn't work (404 not found -ngix), and I can't access/edit/move/do anything to my hosts file. I tried safe boot as well and I still can't edit. I attempted some command line stuff to try to give me access to the file but it doesn't work. Also, read-only and hidden are checked in the properties but it doesn't let me edit those either; I get an access denied error. My lone O1 line from the Hijack log is something with localhost, nothing suspicious. Any idea on how to fix this?
2. Windows Defender doesn't open. It says something like "failed to initialize handle is invalid". It's listed in the Startup tab of msconfig and enabled.
3. Not sure if it's related but my sound has recently stopped working as well. I know it's not the speakers (built into monitors) as I tried brand new ones and they didn't work either. In the mixer, I can see the audio levels fluctuating when watching a youtube video for example, but I don't hear anything. I've toyed around with settings and everything in my audio control panel but still nothing.
Thanks in advance.
If you use a browser other than Internet Explorer, you could try uninstalling it, deleting all files (so in your profile and program files), and then reinstall.
In regards to Windows Defender, it sounds as if your registry is damaged and/or core files for defender. That said, have a look at this: Error message when you try to start Windows Defender on a computer that you recently upgraded to Windows Vista: "Application failed to initialize"
A bit more information in regards to your system specs, setup, etc., would be helpful.
Do you have more than one output port on your computer? If so, try plugging your speakers into that and see if it works.
You might need to recheck your sound/audio settings in Windows, just to check it is outputting to the correct device.
If no success, try uninstalling/reinstalling (or just updating) your soundcard driver.

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).

The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.
However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.
I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.
Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.
Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

I've tried renewing our ip address on both desktop but it won't give us new ip address for some reason. pls help

I have a Dell Precision 5510.
I have it hooked up to an external monitor using dual screen
The sound from a video on youtube (etc) works fine when the external monitor is unplugged, BUT NOT WHEN THE MONITOR IS PLUGGED IN. This confuses me. Is there a solution?
Hello. What might be happening is after you connect to the external display, the audio switches to HDMI audio. To get the audio to emit from the laptop's speakers again, go to the Windows Sounds dialog and make Speakers the default playback device (right click). You might have to do this every time you connect an HDMI cable.Read other 1 answers

I have an older HP Laptop DV1000 & the ethernet NIC stoped working. When I try to reinstall it, the Found New Hardware Wizard gives me this error message: Cannot Install the Hardware. The system can not find the file specified. I tried uninstalling & reinstalling from the Hardware Manager with the same result. And I tried installing previous (older) versions of the driver that are already on the latptop with the same result. The NIC is a REALtek RTL8139/810X, my OS is WIN XP PRO (32 bit) Is there a way to fix, or am I going to need to replace the NIC. If I must replace it, where would I look for 1, what's the preferred replacement, etc.. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks
