I decided to run Asus live and have it update my computer. Around the 12th update my computer couldn't connect to the Internet saying my cable may be broken and try a new one. I ran troubleshooter and have a Ethernet Controller doesn't have a driver.
After an automatic update to my HP pavilion laptop computer, all of my word files are now saved in Word 2007 instead of Word 2010. I used the restore point and the problem disappeared. As soon as the update (identified as a critical update) occurred, the problem resumed.
I have USB 3.0 slots in my Dell Laptop. My desktop has a couple of these, too, but also a number that are USB 2.0. The Hauppauge HD-DVR and Media Center remote which work fine when used with USB 2.0 slots don't work in USB 3.0 slots.
In Windows XP, if you try to update a driver and the OS can't find all of the driver files it will tell you which file is missing, and then give you the option to select the folder the file might be in.In Windows 7, if you try to update a driver and the OS can't find all of the driver files it halts with the message "The system cannot find the file specified" and the only option you get is to close the window.I was wondering if there is any to make Windows 7 work more like Windows XP in this regard. Perhaps a registry hack or some sort of modification? Basically I am looking for a way to make Windows 7 look for missing driver files instead of just giving up.
Every time i want to use the computers sound it starts making a horrible beep sound, very high pitch. I tried using the sound settings but nothing, if i disable the mic then i cannot hear anything i want to play on netflix. i cant use skype or any other program designed to use sound without hearing this beep.
I'm a long-time user of Outloook Express, and have recently switched to Windows Live Mail on a new laptop running Windows 7. I'm gradually coming to grips with the similarities and differences, and generally I'm quite happy with Live Mail. But I have one puzzle and one irritation, and I wondered if anyone here knows how (if at all) I can deal with them?
Despite comprehensively UNchecking "Check for new messages every xx minutes" (several times) on different days, and subsequently closing and restarting Live Mail each time I've tried, it still seems to download emails from the server of its own accord: not frequently, but seemingly at random intervals, but especially when I "wake up" the latop in the morning. Is there some other setting I can alter to prevent it downloading any emails at any time unless I tell it to?
I install most Windows 7 updates, but I am not ready to go to IE9.But every time I turn on my laptop I get a notification of a "new" update avaialable, that ends up being for the IE9 I keep declining.How do I stop Windows Update from notifing me on specific updates I want to decline.
On Windows 7 Laptop, incessantly prompts to update Java. I've said yes, I've said no, I've changed the settings to turn off automatic updates several times. It won't stop. It prompts about 80% of the time I boot computer on. I've read a few things about messing with registry edits, but really don't want to start with that.
i've recently decide to update all of my PC components , and stuck on motherboard bios. i've red the manuals , and it says to download "asus update utility" on their site , but when im choosing "windows 7 64" and downloading the utility it says that i should download 64 bit application . so is there any other way to update my bios ? or..
I have a HP G62 laptop computer running Windows 7 Professional. Recently when I try to run windows Update the notice comes up in red & when I click for checking updates I get the notice "Windows update cannot currently check for updates because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer". Rebooting the computer does not work. I don't think this is a virus since no other problems are occuring & all programs seem to run ok.
I keep trying to update Windows Live Essential but it tells me to turn on my firewall and it is on. I tried to uninstall and reinstall and it did but didn't load Windows Live Mail. That is the client I use. I loaded Thunderbird and it couldn't find my contacts. So....I restored to 2 days earlier and I am back to square one. What do I do next.
I recently got a prompt for a Windows Live Mail 2011 update. So, I allowed it. Upon rebooting it required that I log onto the Messenger feature, which I never use and don't care to. So I canceled the Messenger prompt and then my entire Mail system failed. I then used the Windows 7 Restore function to fall back to prior system files and now all is Ok.
just had the live mail update to 2011, in the old live mail you could change the background of your outgoing emails both color or with an image. personaly I had a feint rose as my default background for all my emails, now its plain?
Did a Windows Live Essentials update, after which, my email contacts were all gone. I did system restore, exported the old addys to a folder. After closing Windows Live Mail, I could not reopen without re-doing the update install. So, I did. When I went to the CONTACTS tab (bottom left) it never really opens. It clears the emails or calendar, from the main window but leaves the same 'ribbon' (or task bar or whatever at the top). It doesn't show the options that should be there for 'contacts' (no import/export/etc). If it matters, I do not sign in to Windows Live Mail. When I open it, there's always a a popup that says I've tried to sign-in too many times with the wrong info.
After installing what appears to be a Windows Live update, now, each time I start Windows Live Mail, the pop-up logo appears for it, but, the window for the inbox doesn't. Then, I have to click to bring the window forward into view, which 2 out of 3 times it will appear as a smaller than usual window.Since it is being launched from a button on my taskbar and not from a shortcut it's not likely being started minimized. I did have a startup shortcut that ran it minimized before the update took precedence of it.
I admin that I installed Windows Live Essentials a few days back. I didn't like it (sidebar: it made dealing with my many Outlook accounts a pain, but that's another discussion). So, I removed it.
Now, I just checked for updates and Windows Live Essentials was in my list to install. I installed everything except Windows Live Essentials. How do I remove it from the list?
I have tried rebooting since my successful update of the patches I wanted.
I looked in the SoftwareDistribution folder, thinking maybe there was a single file that I could remove, but there's my entire history of updates there, which I don't want to mess with. I certainly don't want some other user on the machine to OK the install, so I would like to hide it.
I just reinstalled my windows 7 (64-bit, home) because needed to kill some viruses. After reinstallation, most software will crash when double click, including media player etc. But If I run these software as administrator, it is OK.And double click IE 9 64-bit is good, no need to run as administrator, but IE 9 32-bit and Chrome will crash if they are not run as administrator.After the software crash, sometimes it will show some error message such as "the instruction at 0xxxxxxxxx referenced memory 0xxxxxxxxxxx. The memory could not be written."It is weird that I can not double click a mp3 to automatically open the media player to play the song, and constantly need to right click the player to run as administrator and drag the mp3 into player, too much trouble.I have done all updates of windows 7. It is still the same.
Im having a slight issue with one of my machines I cant track down the cause. My USB mouse and keyboard will randomly stop working. After a reboot they work fine for a few minutes then they will stop functioning. We have tried drivers and chipset drivers.
I've just bougth a new HP z 600 workstation for my audio recordings, but i'm hving big issues with my software. Windows media player is not working properly. It is enable to start videos - it crack and i get this message saying WMP stoped working. If i play audio i can listen for some seconds and after a while it cracks too and i get the same message. Because WMP 12 comes with windows 7 i can't install it. so i don't know what to do. I'm having basicaly the same problem with other audio and video programs (quick time, i tunes, etc... ) I don't know what's wrong. Could it be something to do whit the fact that i have a 64 bit system?
