Please update you ATI graphic river, or enable your ATI adapter using the Displays Manager. But the thing is I dont know how to do this or what to do can someone help!!!!
I went to a wired connection instead of wireless, and then decided to go back to wired. Since my wireless connection is through a linksys WUSB600N and it has known problems with skipping when playing games like World of Warcraft I turned off WLAN and had disabled my wireless adapter, then installed another program to run the connection (Which I had done previously though the last time I didn't turn off WLAN or disable my adapter). Then I went to enable the adapater and it wouldn't enable. I also turned back on WLAN and restarted. It still won't work. At this point nothing I do will enable my wireless adapater. It shows it is enabling but then it just keeps saying disabled. The light on the WUSB600N doesn't even turn on when I plug it in now, and it just worked less then 24 hours ago.
When I check the status of my network adapter, it says that DHCP is not enabled. How do I enable it in Windows Vista Ultimate? I'm trying to enable it for ICS to/with a windows XP Pro computer. The other computer (XP) is not auto configuring itself with the right type of network settings. (IP, Subnet mask, & Gateway) For instance: it will configure itself to use 169.254.37.72, 255.255.0.0 instead of 192.168.0.(2-255), 255.255.255.0, and Default Gateway of 192.168.0.1.
I just bought an EVGA nForce 730i mobo with onboard GeForce 9300 graphics card. I installed vista ultimate 32 bit and the first thing I did was install all the drivers from the disk that came with the motherboard. For some reason I can't find my display adapter in my device manager list and I don't think the driver from the mobo disk is installing properly but I can't check that because I don't see the adapter in the device manager list. Any idea on how I can fix this?
The Microsoft 6to4 adapter showed in the device manager that it was not working properly. If you look at yours it may show the same. I think I disabled it trying to update it. This was before I found this short sweet article from Microsoft. Does anyone know if I will experience problems in the future when this new technology gets more prevalent? If so, how do I get it back. I followed the instructions that a vista pro gave me to fix this problem and it shows in the reliability monitor that it was installed...but it is not showing int he device manager. Would it be installed but not show on the device manager?
I really need help enabling the 'advanced settings' for my audio manager. I've aready reinstalled the drivers 'alot' of time using different versions of it. See the attached screen shot of my HD audio manager. The speaker and mic works fine, the problem I have is. when I plug in the headphone jack into my s/pdif slot both the speaker and headphone plays sounds. I heard I can change this in the advanced settings. which I can't acess.
I have a issue with my Linksys wireless USB adapter. I am trying to use it with Vista Home Premium. After installing software... I plug the adapter in (like directions say) and windows update goes to work. It updates the driver, installs correctly, I then connect to my home network and all is good. My prob is for some reason I lose internet and the USB adapter itself. One time I switched users and lost all. I have tried uninstalling adapter and tried reinstalling by pointing to my D drive (install CD) in hopes of using the driver that's on the installation CD. as soon as it saw everything.. windows update once again gave me the same buggy driver. I have tried to install with UAC disabled... no luck... the Linksys website/support for drivers has the same updated driver. I tried to use an older one but Windows keeps forcing this updated one down my throat.
I got a Nvidia 8400GS When i got the PC but brought a Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 / 1GB / PCI Express 2.0 / Graphics Card. My brother took out the Nvid card and then formated the PC to make sure that all drivers where uninstalled then put the ATI card in. In divice manager under dispaly adapters there is standard VGA Graphics Adapter and further down the page there is "Other Divices" with Video controller. When it installs these some times the standard VGA Graphics Adapter fail but the video controller succeed but with error. saying. "Incompatable display Adapter has been disabled. At least one display adapter on the system has been disabled because its not compatible with the driver for the VGA adapter". lso i carnt change the resolution above 1024X768. Also my Graphic card is a Sapphier brand but in the windows update its looking for ATI Technologies Inc. - Display - ASUS EAH3870X2 Series
Every now and then, I use PowerTools Lite to see what "rubbish" has accumulated in the Registry etc. Vista treats this prog as unidentified and displays the UAC window giving me the options of running it or quitting. Is there a way of letting Vista know that I trust this program and therefor not display the UAC window each time I launch it?
On a dual monitor system, is it possible to choose which monitor displays a program at startup? If I put a shortcut to Internet Explorer in the startup folder, can I tell it to start the program on monitor 1 or monitor 2?
We have a laptop at our school which stopped booting up. The day before we played a movie on it and there was no problem. But the laptop stopped booting up that day and since no one ever managed to make it boot up. It displays BOOTMGR is missing Press CTRL+DEL+ALT to restart when turned on. We have a bios password set up on the PC. Pc- Doctor check up test fails at SMBIOS:Standards Test. OS: Windows Vista Basic Model: Lenova 3000 N200 and the BIOS supervisor password is missing.
When sending emails on Windows Mail the full email address and name of the receiver are displayed on the header. The old system i used had a "display as" option and all that it showed was the persons name or nickname. I usually send mail using the BCC option to hide identities so i know that its not a big deal but its driving me mad. I know that there must be a way of changing it to just show a name.
A friend has an Acer Desktop with Vista. It was installing the latest Windows updates, and 'hung / froze' ( her words ) Now, when it starts, it displays the BIOS screen? Obviously some sort of major problem? I was going to try the Recovery Console first?
i am trying to rename folder'S name message displays THE FILE OR FOLDER DOESNT EXIST.i tryed to run downloaded registry fixer to fix this problem,but its opens in notped with lots of simbols.i have windows vista 32 bit.i think it occured after installed updates
I installed new software and pinned the executable to the start menu. But, Vista displays a generic icon in the start menu for this program. All other programs pinned to the start menu display the correct icon. Any way to get Vista to dispaly the proper icon for this program??
window vista home premium 32 bitand not long ago i had connected a wireless router to it. shortly after my network sharing did not work any more there was a ! on the on the network adapter symbol. code error 31
i uninstalled it and wanted to reinstalle it but i did not copy down which one it was, i did researse on my computer and foud four intel (R)/pro wireless 2200BG nectwok connection and others .
my question is which was the one a deleted or which is the one i need to reinstall to be compatible with my pc.
I have Vista Ultimate x64 installed on a dual core Pentium D 820, 3Gb ram machine. I also have a "bluenext" USB 2.0 wifi adapter, which is actually based on the ZD1211B chipset, recently renamed the Atheros AR5007UG. Running WPA-PSK
- all drivers since 18.104.22.168 result in very slow performance (~ 30 kbps) - virtually every day the adapter stops working. Usually the LED is off & no error is logged, but device needs to be replugged to reactivate. Occasionally a reboot is needed.................
I recenctly bought a new machine that has Vista Basic installed on it. I installed the latest drivers for my Netgear wireless adapter which are supposed to be Vista compatible. However, although I can get connected, I often have to mess around with the networking settings first and then the connection will only last around 15 minutes before the adapters led stops flashing. I then have to reboot to get a connection again. I tried the adapter back n my old XP machine and it is fine. As soon as the XP machine boots, the led indicator starts flashing and it doesn't stop until you shut down. With the Vista machine, the adapter often doesn't start flashing until you actually connect and then it will just stop after a short while. I've been messing around with this for weeks now and got nowhere. I would have suspected the adapter drivers, but it seems as though there are a lot of other people with the same problem on different adapters.
I have a Dell Studio 1537 and i have completley reinstalled windows vista and after the screen was a bit stretched. I turned the resolution to the highest and made sure the colours option was at 32bit. This helped and shrunk the screen a bit but now it is still a little bit stretched and the image is not as sharp as it used to be. How can i get it back to its origional format?
I have a WG111v2 which I bought just to be able to use Vista x64. It doesn't work well with games though, so I need an adapter with no dropouts and x64 support. Would be nice with some recommendations.
I am still trying to get some help for this. In Device Manager, under Network Adapters I get a list of 20 approx items all with yellow triangle warnings (apart from 2). The first ones are Microsoft 6to4 Adapters. Info says drivers are up to date,but I get an error code 31. Details: Message "This device is not working properly because windows cannot load the drivers required for this device" (Code 31). Have checked for solutions, but says there are none. I get similar warnings for the other 20 items shown. What do I do now please? (I am using an Acer laptop, with Vista Ultimate OS)
I have a compaq presario desktop that I am trying to connect to a dlink wireless system. I have tried trendnet, linksys, and now Dlink usb wireless adapters but none will connect. They show up in the device manager as fine and dandy but will not enable. I am now trying the dlink WUA 1340 and downloaded the drivers from the dlink website.
I have also did a netsh wlan show settings and it says the autoconfig is disabled. Not sure if it should be enabled and have yet to find out how to enable it on this desktop. I have already tried the to do set autoconfig enabled=yes interface="?" as per technet instructions but just says wlansvc is not running. I am very frustrated and have had to drag the dlink router and dsl to telus to my computer so I can hook up by ethernet.
I have ran the gammut on this as I have even went through all the usb plugs and all are working and detect the wireless device. I have removed everything a few times and reinstalled without the dlink software etc. etc. etc.
It seems many people have problems with Internet connections in Vista. I am one of them and have gone through all the discussions looking for a solution - nothing so far!! What seems to work is a script that automatically resets the adapter on start up
I've recently installed Vista Business on a new Dell PC. I've had problems installing the wireless adapter but in the end, Vista itself installed drivers for it though now the utility provided with the adapter doesn't work at all. The connection works fine until you try and download large files/use more bandwidth. For example; using a download manager like Flashget to download several files. From then it dwindles straight to 0kbps and then the whole connection dies, disconnects and the router is no longer available, according to Vista and yet the router is running fine with other computers on the network going strong. I've tried installing, updating, reinstalling drivers, altering the power settings and other internet settings to no avail.
I am new to Vista and my o/s is telling me I have Vista Home Premium (64 bit Operating System).
My PC is a Packard Bell iPower X9810. Motherboard is MS-7380
I wanted to insert a wireless PCI adapter into one of the vacant slots in my machine.
I purchased an Edimax wireless 802.11n 32 bit PCI adapter (model = EW-7728in).
I thought, after reading countless reviews this was going to be easy
So I popped it in and switched my machine back on (holding my breath). I saw the initial Packard Bell splash screen then was presented with a black empty screen with a flashing cursor in the top left hand corner
At this point I was rather concerned because I could hear my machine making a whiring noise (it didn't sound good).
After administering some smelling salts I proceeded to re-start crossing my fingers and it happened again. On the 3rd attempt I eventually got a sort of recovery screen that gave me one of two options 1) attempt a repair or 2) continue trying to load windows. I selected the first option and again held my breath.
After roughly 10 mins it had performed a system restore and I had turned back the clock to a previously known good state.
For the life of me I cannot understand why this happened. The manual that came with the card said to pop the adapter in the slot > boot up > run CD-ROM and hey presto but that did not happen.
When I looked at the mobo inside the machine the 2 PCI slots are ever so slightly offset and don't align tru with the covers you ping off the back of the tower. However, I must advise that the adapter went in without much of a struggle but must of " slightly " been on the wonk as I have already said the slots are not 100% in line with were the aerials stick out the back.
I'm scared to death now of breaking my machine and don't know what to do? The Edimax website says this is compatible with my 64 bit Vista so what gives?
just before the bsod problems my bluetooth adapter was working up and i got messages to reinstall the drivers fer it.(didnt pay much heed to it)i thnk i had a few viruses on my system i used avira and cleaned them up.(only the c i also let windows update download updates (around 450 mb) (in the meantime i went out fer a smoke) it installed them then prompted me to reboot. i rebooted it when i got back and since then iv had this error message.(BSOD)
a problem has been detected ..blah blah..windows shut down to prevent damage to your system.. .
Setup: New Vista PC (bargain-rack special - a bare-bones office machine with Vista Home Basic) has a built-in VGA adapter. I want to do the two-monitor setup, so I plugged in my ATI video card as the second video driver. Problem: When I boot the machine, I get the following error: Incompatible display adapter has been disabled. At least one display adapter on the system has been disabled because its driver is not compatible with the driver for the VGA adapter.
What I find odd, though perhaps it is not odd to you, is that the internal driver was the one disabled - the ATI card is now defaulted as the main (and only enabled) driver. In Control Panel, it does not say that the drivers or controllers are disabled, but instead that there are problems. Clicking on Troubleshoot does nothing at all.
Everytime I reboot the laptop I loose the ability to connect to the internet although the laptop confirms a connection to the wireless network router.I click "Diagnose this connection" and choose "Automatically get new IP Settings for the network adapter" I have internet connectivity restored.
The laptop is an HP dv6755ca, less then one week old, and has been checked to be sure all drivers and updates have been installed. I have run anti-virus and checked for malware/spyware. The network setup is 1. PC connected via ethernet, 1. wireless laptop and 1. smc8014w-g wireless gateway.
Although the setup was walked through with me by the technician (over the phone) I'm not yet ruling out a faulty set-up in the 192.168.0.1 site [except that I have had no issues with the wired connection].
