No Internet - Nvidia NForce Networking Controller: Rebooted After Installing Various Programs
Jan 16, 2008
I just installed Vista on my computer, and was installing all my programs when I had to reboot. I did so, but then realised I'd lost my internet (it had been working up until then). A 'Diagnose and Repair' found that "The network adapter 'Nvidia nForce Networking Controller' is experiencing driver or hardware related issues." As I said, the internet had been working up until then. I haven't installed any Windows updates (it's set to alert me of new ones). I have had this problem before: I installed Vista, internet worked, rebooted after installing various programs, internet didn't work. Left it overnight & tried again next day, internet worked. Sometime later after reboot, internet didn't work. I then tried to install the Nvidia chipset driver again, but it froze part way through the install. This is when I wiped the entire hard drive and started again, but the problem is back.
I was over my friends house, I was helping to do some PC inspections before he upgrades to Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. I did a Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor Scan. The following issues were encoutered with his Alieware Area 51-7500: (Driver Issue)
Manufacturer: NVIDIA Issue: nForce Networking Controller. This device will not work in Windows Vista. For more information, please go to the device manufacturer's website, Windows Marketplace, or contact your retailer.
The Windows Update for the "nvidia nforce networking controller" caused my internet to not work properly. I restored my system and rolled back the driver, both on separate occasions to resolve this issue. It worked, however, now I need to know what to do about the update. I cannot leave my settings to update automatically because of this.
My Internet was acting very very slow. My computer was running fast as it always does but the internet was just very slow. I than noticed that in the bottom right corner of my screen the little globe had gone away. when I scrolled over it, it read local only? About one minute later the globe came back and it read local and internet. Whats wrong here? Here is my setup- I have my desktop computer connected to a wireless router (protected) (only used for Playstation) the router is connected to my vonage device, and the vonage device is connected to the modem. I am on vista, I have charter communications as my isp and this is not the first time this has happened!In fact if I look in my firewall I sometimes see connection issues like these- IP address has dissapeared from adapter Nvidia Nforce 10/100 mbps ethernet is no longer being protected (IP address .....) then a few seconds later I will read protecting your connection to a newly detected network Nvidia N force 10/100 mbps (ethernet.......) this ethernet is different that the one that dissapeared.Then I will see other firewall logs with all these connections and all?? Im so confuced. I am 99.9 % sure I have not been hacked by a neighbor.
I was having a small driver problem when connecting the Xbox 360 wired controller to my Vista x64 Home Premium machine. There were two instances of the controller in the Device Manager:
1. Xbox 360 Controller for Windows 2. Controller (XBOX 360 For Windows)
I downloaded the drivers for the controller from the MS site: Download Gaming Software. Once I installed the MS drivers, the device "Xbox 360 Controller for Windows" was successfully installed, but the other device "Controller (XBOX 360 For Windows)" would not install the necessary driver. Even Windows Update couldn't find the appropriate drivers for it...........
installed this yesterday in cpu and vista x64 home premieum didnt detect it.. the odd thing was i put install cd in and it gave me this error message no xfx product found go online for the latest driver.. that didnt work i downloaded the latest driver for vista x64 and when it oipened it said it wouldnt run because that card wasn't found...i checked my device manager and it showed no display adapter like before when my radeon graphics card was in.. i had my monitor plugged in to it i had a pic albeit not crystal clear but yet windows didnt detect it.. i also went into the bios to make sure that pci express was checked.. i know it was installed properly wondering what the deal is... would really like to get a better graphics card in with cuda aceleration...
My Vista Ultimate Computer is not cooperating in my home network. It cannot see nor bee seen by any device in my network. My home network is fairly simple but it consists of the following: Linksys WRT350N Router: My Computer: Vista Ultimate, connected by wire, Uses Bitdefender 2008 Internet Security, Sees nothing, Nothing sees it*
Mother's Computer: Xp Home, Connected Wirelessly (Linksys Wireless Internet Adapter 300N), Uses Zone Alarm Internet Security, Cannot See Vista puter* Archos 704 Portable Media Player: Connected Wirelesly, Can see Xp puter,Can be seen by XP puter when it is in device mode and file server mode............
i've got two computers running off a LAN network at my business (i think that's what it's called when it's not wireless). the main computer is working fine, connecting to the internet, network, etc. the secondary computer WAS working fine until yesterday morning. nothing has changed, no one has touched anything or made any adjustments or anything at all. now it appears to connect to the network since it's still running our POS program with no problem, but it says it's connecting to "unidentified network". it also won't connect to the internet. we've tried all the standard troubleshooting ideas (disconnecting, reconnecting, restarting, blah blah blah) NOTHING WORKS!
i've read other threads & tried what other people are trying & it's still doing the same exact thing. the thing that's different from everyone elses problems is that most other people are having problems with new systems or updated systems... this computer has had no changes made to it & was working fine until now.
I'm running build 5384 on a Dell Precision 370 and a Precision 380. I've tried 64 and 32bit versions but I keep having the following problem: Basically I can access the internet but very, very slowly. Most pages just time out. The machines both have Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit NIC's connected to Dell Powerconnect Gigabit switches. I've tried Manual IP config and DHCP but I can't get a reasonable speed through via ethernet! There's nothing wrong with the network, I've got hundreds of XP 32bit and x64 clients connected to the same network and they can all access the Internet fine. I can ping other clients on the netowork from the Vista machines and I get
I have finaly gotten xp and vista to network together with no trouble through a hub/router/switch, I can see both computers from eatchother and run programs between them no problem. The problem is i have a connection to the internet with the vista computer but not the xp computer. If i try resetting the router and cable modem what ever computer i load up first gets the internet conection.I have to force the ip adderss by making it match within on number the vista ip. basicly shove the network down vista's neck. I have went into the vista computer and made sure i checked the box to make it so that any computer on the network can surf the internet though its internet connection but my xp still can not see the internet.
I have tried using command prompts to ping the internet and ping my gateway but that is no good. On vista i can map it out and see the gateway but with xp even when it has the internet connection i do no see the gateway. is there something i am missing in the set up of the network and is tthere a fix without updating to vista and or taking a axe to my vista computer i just spent 2 grand on.
I have started to notice a lot of vista systems that are connected direct to cable modems saying not connected to internet or showing unidentified network. You cannot create a new connection, because the create a connection is for PPPoE only, (which is not very smart). And when the browser gives you the option to connect, it asks for name/password for a PPPoE connection.
1. How do I get the Vista networking to recognize the fact is has a direct connection to the Internet?
2. How can you create a new connection without it defaulting to PPPoE?
3. Is there any way to force Vista to simply connect to a network, if the network is available, and has been checked with other computers as working properly, and Network discovery is on, and vista simply says unknown network?........
Possibly I should have read a few forums and tutorials when I first got my new Vista computer before downloading and installing a bunch of programs, but alas I didn't and now I have something of a mess. I have some program files installed to my user account, I have some installed to the Admin account because I couldn't install them to my user account, and now I have some programs that absolutely must be installed to the user account in order to work properly but can't be because of the whole Denial of Administrator Privileges that has been brought into the picture with Vista.
I also strongly suspect some program files got installed twice also. Maybe not, but when I configure a program in my user account (like iTunes or Microsoft Outlook) those changes are not evident on the admin account. And an outrageous amount of the space on my C drive has eaten up already, much more than I suspect I've actually installed. Basically, I would really, really love to get all of the program files onto one account, preferably the Admin account, make sure any duplicates are taken care of, and otherwise clean it up because i don't want a big sluggish registry mess within a month of owning this computer. Something like that?
I have had this X-Fi Snap/Crackle/Pop issue for a few weeks now. It started when I got my 2nd 8800 GTS and an additional 2GB of RAM. The X-Fi card worked great prior to getting these two new pieces of hardware. Then the SCP started happening. My best two leads was that the X-Fi card didn't play nice with 4GB of RAM nor the NForce 4 chipset. After tons of forum research and trying a bunch of possible solutions I have come down to my final try.
My Asus MOBO has a beta bios (1405) that may have the fix for this SCP issue. Since Asus does not release bios information on betas, I am going off of what other people had mentioned about the fixes in this beta bios. I flashed the bios last night and have reimaged my C drive so I know that currently everything is working correctly. I have created a Complete PC Backup image this morning. I will install the X-Fi sound card tonight and see if my SCP issue is gone. If nothing else I can go back to my backup image and try something else. I will update this thread with the results this evening.
i can not get programs to install when they have been downloaded on the Internet. They progress as far as the 'Windows Installer" and then it just sits there and stalls out. I am trying to download and install both Itunes and Acrobat 8.0 Professional.
Do "tweak" programs which are supposed to help with Internet connection speeds and overall throughput really help? I'm currently using a cable modem setup in a home office situation. There are a lot of times where the throughput slows considerably and I've often wondered if one of these tweak programs would be helpful.I decided to experiment a little with Tweak VI, but honestly couldn't tell whether or not it was helping. (If so, not much, in my humble opinion.)I'm wondering if other Vista users out there have been able to find various third-party tweak programs helpful?
What Card does Nvidia make(or do they)that will play crysis at all max settings and Max Res at close to 60-100FPS? I have seen a system with an 8800 Ultra SLI and out past the 2000 range res it dropped to around 25fps. What about the new GTX280?
I just installed an OEM windows vista home premium onto my computer so that I could take advantage of my 6GB ram. Unfortunately I don't know too much about building systems and I have an internet problem. After I installed the OS, when I plug my computer into my router, I always recieve "unidentified network..limited or no connectivity". I've done everything that the internet company has asked me to do as far as my modem/router is concerned, and Acer wants to charge me a buttload for their help.
Am I missing something simple that I need to do with my 64 bit software? I downloaded the 64 bit drivers for my LAN, audio etc from the acer website but it seems to still do no good. I even downloaded the driver directly from my Lan ethernet controllers brand website. I've been stuck here for days without much help and the wierd thing is that my girlfriend can plug her computer (32 bit vista home premium) right into the router and it connects fine. I'm downloading SP2 now if that makes any difference.
Sorry for posting this in the Vista group, but there are no Windows 7 groups. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. When I try to access my DVDRW drive, my PC crashes. In the Event viewer I see messages like these:
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly. The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000022 (0x002400d2, 0xb5f174b8, 0xb5f17090, 0x00000000). I'd searched Google and saw that many people have similar crashes, but I couldn't find any related to the DVDRW drives. Plus, I couldn't find any solutions either. I thought this might be a drivers conflict, but I have no idea what it is and how to fix it.
I recently experienced problems with the software for my Dell AIO 966 printer. On advice from the Dell NG's, I uninstalled all of my USB controllers, and rebooted in the expectation that Windows would detect and reinstall them. To a point, this was successful, but now whenever I boot my system, I get the windows "New hardware found"dialogue. Any, and I do mean ANY, mouse clicks in the dialog area at this point result in my mouse and keyboard being totally frozen.
Device Manager reports all the usual stuff, along with 2 "Unknown Device" entries. The only way I can boot my system now is to wait for the Hardware found diaalog, R-Click the taskbar, and kill the dialog from Task Manager. I usually have to kill it 3 times, at which point all is well. I've replaced the Dell printer that started this nonsense with an Epson Workforce 500, and have no printer problems. I'm obviously way over my head here folks.
It came installed with vista home premium but yesterday i bought the vista ultimate upgrade dvd. I inserted the dvd and upgraded as per instructions. It was completed without any problems.I've installed all important updates and rebooted the computer many times.
Now my laptop runs really slow, takes a longer time to boot up -about 3 or 4 mins now. In my sidebar i have a CPU meter and usually both cores run at less than 50 percent but now it jumps around 90-100%?? The graph looks like a lie detector when charles manson answered no to the question if he killed anyone?!
I bought a new dell vostro about a month ago, pre-installed with windows vista home premium 32bit. All has been going well with it until Wednesday night when for some reason whilst using messenger the program froze, went light grey and a timer came up in place of the pointer.(i have a vague recollection of seeing a pop up regarding the power supply to the computer - not sure what it was) nothing else would work on the comp, ctrl/alt/del did not work so I couldn't force application to quit. Eventually just held power button until system rebooted. Since this first happened the computer continually freezes with no way of closing down programs, have tried a system restore, but even that process stalls and doesn't complete. Have tried uninstalling McAfee in case that was causing it but to no avail. I loaded up windows in safe mode which seemed to work fine, although the system restore was unavailable in safe mode. At the time it was downloading an 80mb vista update, which is yet to finish, again in safe mode the vista update was not running. The freezes occur with random programs, not just one particular one Anyone got any ideas of what the problem is and how to fix it, got a lot of uni work needing done outside of work hours and not having use of this computer is really annoying.
So one day I turned on my computer from a hibernation, and the windows didn't resume correctly, so i dumped the restore and just rebooted. Following that, none of my usb devices worked. In my device manager, under Universal Serial Bus controllers, there are two unknown devices (I uploaded a picture). I've looked all over microsoft support for an update that would help, and I couldn't find anything.
Just got a nice wireless keyboard and mouse. Problem is, when the machine is rebooted, these devices dont work anymore. I have to unplug the USB cable of the remote sensing unit, and plug it back in to get the devices to work. Needless to say, this is a pain. This is a Micro Innovations wireless keyboard and mouse, and Im using the latest Vista drivers (according to them).
I've recently got attacked by some sort of virus malware and my AVG instantly asked me to reboot. After I rebooted and loaded the green loading bar, my entire screen turned black without the windows badge.When I clicked on the restart button, I'm able to get inside safe mode, network and command prompt but not start windows normally.. I've also tried chkdsk command but it showed 0 bad file.
i installed sp2 several times. First time it worked fine until we had a power outage and it unregistered my windows installation and cited security breach as the reason why it could not rereg the os. so I reinstalled the OS. after about a week i installed sp2 and again it worked fine for about 3 days Then it unregistered the os again. This time i uninstalled the SP and all was fine. went to reinstall the sp and it would make it to the 100% mark and back out the whole installation.
AFter reading forums til my eyeballs bled i found i could "rearm" the system. I did this and SP2 reinstalled fine. The next day updates told me i had 1 important update and it was a sp2 uninstallation tool. I clicked ok and d/l it when the system rebooted it promptly removed sp2. I reinstalled sp2 it reinstalled fine. The next day new definitions for defender came in and when it rebooted it removed sp2 again>??? Any ideas this round robin installation system seems to be stuck in a loop and im stuck with something just not sure what.
I turned DEP off by reading the vistax64 forum. when i rebooted, a big problem raised. windows vista ( home premium ) crashed to continue. i selected safe mode and other F8 choices...but still problem is there. then I used Vista DVD to repair startup...problem not solved. I used system restore...but not worked.
I ran the Memory Diagnostics tool and after it completed and rebooted back into Windows, I didnt see any results. Where do you see the results of the test? I'm trying to diagnose this problem where my PC is rebooting at random, but I can't determine if it's a memory problem or not. So where can I find the results of this test?
vundo managed to slip into what i thought was a secure system..sure, Defender detected it...but it missed the 4 other DLL's the process made and let them through...now i'm sitting here unable to detect it with scanners.
Im determined to kill it, but as of now it's screwed with my windows activation. I rebooted and got Error 0xC004D301 - The security processor reported that the trusted data store was tampered. Assuming I get this cleaned...how much of a PITA is it going to be to get my vista back to validated or at this point am I totally screwed and it won't be able to be reactivated?
I do not want to see any of the programs at the top of the list of All Programs (especially Internet Explorer). I just want to see the program folders listed, preferably sorted by newest or most recently modified first, by alphabetically would be OK. How to get rid of the 8 programs shown in here? Thanks.
