Have To Restart Computer To Connect To Network

Nov 23, 2009

I have two computers and I use them both a lot. They are both for work. I have Input Defender to allow me to use my mouse on both screens. Unfortunately, quite often my laptop seems to boot up and isn't connected to the network at all. I have to restart it and / or just wait till it decides to connect. Sometimes hours.

How can I figure out why it's not connecting to the the network and / or Internet.


15 Minutes To Restart & Takes Long To Connect 2 Network?

Mar 17, 2011

Toshiba Satellite M645-S4065 (LAPTOP)
CPU: Intel Core i3 M370 2.40GHz dual-core
System type: 64-bit

1) When I restart, my computer stays stuck at the "Shutting Down..." screen for 15 minutes. I then get a BSOD, then it restarts, I get the prompt to start up as safe mode, etc., and then I'm back to the main screen. The BSOD reads: driver_power_state_failure

2) Connecting to the internet, whether by my phone's hotspot or ethernet cord is really problematic, especially by cord. It often hangs and I have to restart the computer or wait a really long time. The taskbar icon hangs with the spinning Aero circle perpetually. And attempting to open the networking controls just freezes.

Cannot Connect To Another Home Computer On The Network

May 29, 2012

I have been having this issue on and off for a while now. We have 2 windows 7 computers. Network discovery is on and password protection is off. The folders necessary are shared, but when I try to connect to the computer on the network it asks me for a unsername and password. however, if the other computer tries to connect to mine, they get in no problem. We've tried a homegroup and I can't see any of the files in the folders.. I have read and read on the forums and tried everything I could..

Computer Suddenly Stopped Being Able To Connect To Wireless Network

Dec 14, 2011

A few days ago my computer (an ASUS Eee Netbook) suddenly stopped being able to connect to the wireless network in my apartment, seemingly for no reason whatsoever. It had been working fine earlier in the day, I went out for about an hour (didn't even shut the computer down), returned home and was unable to connect to the network. The computer can locate the network and continues to attempt connecting to it with no luck. I can connect to other networks without any trouble. It has never done this before. I've rebooted the computer several times and performed a System Restore, but without any success. I'm hesitant to reset the router as this is a shared connection with the other people in my apartment (who as far as I know aren't having any trouble with the connection).

Computer Unable To Connect To Wireless Network At New Apartment

Jan 2, 2012

Yesterday I moved into a new apartment in Vancouver, Canada. Several friends came up with me to help me move in. My friends were able to connect to the wireless network. However, as soon as I tried connecting to the network, the wireless signal began to appear and disappear rapidly for everyone connected, effectively cutting off wireless access. This problem only occurs when I sign on. Furthermore.

Can anyone advise how I would go about fixing this. I am trying to connect to a network (I have a dell running on windows 7) and it keeps telling me that windows is unable to connect to the network-this is before I can even enter the security key. I know it is not a problem with the wireless because other people are able to connect to it fine.

WiFi Connection Occasionally Drops / Only Re-connect When Restart Router

Jul 1, 2012

Generally once or twice a day, my computer will suddenly drop its internet connection.It will then start an endless loop of trying to connect: Sensing the network is there Trying to connect (With the loading symbol and "Initializing")Appearing to connect successfully (but when I try an open a web page, nothing loads, and I receive an error message telling me there's no connection)A few seconds later, the yellow triangular warning sign appears next to the wireless bar.A few seconds after that, it drops the connection, and then starts over at step oneA few seconds later, it will start again at step one.The only way I am able to get the network back on is to: Disconnect manually (press "disconnect")Turn of my wireless antenna on my computer Turn on and off my router Turn back on the antenna Reconnect.I have to do these 5 steps every time it disconnects.This is only happening on this one computer - other computers on the network aren't experiencing the problem (running XP and Win 7).I have an Asus U56E-BAL7.

Multiple Network Connections After A Restart?

Jul 12, 2011

I have updated several computers to Windows 7. On this particular computer (Dell Dimension 8400 desktop with Ethernet connection), each time there is a reboot or shutdown, when I log back in, the computer is disconnected from the network. I see that the router gives the computer an IP address, but Internet Explorer does not open Websites, Outlook does not receive email, etc.When I navigate to the 'Network and Sharing Center', I notice that there are 2 'Network Locations' - 1 'home' and 1 'public'. I have attempted to delete the 'public' location, and I have also attempted to merge the 2 'Network Locations' into 1. This seems to work, but I still cannot surf the Internet. Also, after a reboot, the 2 'Network Locations' are back--even after I merged or deleted them.

I have found a workaround for this. After each reboot and/or shutdown, I navigate to the 'Network and Sharing Center', I click on 'Change adaptor settings', I right-click to 'disable' the 'Local Area Connection', and finally I 'right-click' to 'enable' the 'Local Area Connection'. At that point, the 'public' location goes away (which leave only the 'home' connection) and I am able to immediately surf the Internet, receive email through Outlook, etc.This is a major issue because if the computer is rebooted, I can no longer connect to it remotely, until I am in front of the computer again to disable/re-enable the 'Local Area Connection' adaptor

I am trying to upgrade Vista to Windows7 Home Premium and I got this message after the installer copied ~2GB of files on my PC:

"setup can't continue. restart the computer and restart setup. when prompted try getting the latest updates."

I restarted the PC and restarted the setup and I got the same message. I updated the Mother Board Bios and restarted the setup I got the same message. I have tried both options (get update and no update during the setup). And it didn't work.

I do not want to do custom install (fresh install) on my computer.

Very recently I started having a problem with the remote desktop where it says the following message:

"Your computer could not connect to another console session on the remote computer because you already have a console session in progress."

I do not know why it started doing that.As well, going in the Users tab of task manager you can see there that I am logged in as a console user.

Cannot Reboot / Restart Computer

Aug 5, 2011

I have a Dell Inspiron 1440, and after it crashed while I was out for Dinner yesterday, I have been encountering so many problems..Yesterday, I was able to get back into my "Account" and access my desktop, but after a few minutes of being on, every single program/application I had opened turned "Not Responding" and stayed that way.

Now today.. I thought it had gotten better, so I did virus scans, registry updates, defragmenting, all of that, and my Laptop worked fine for a few hours. Then it became worse.

I scheduled a Disk Check, and when it finished, it restarted my laptop, but after the Windows Logo that pops up, all I get is a black screen and a cursor that I can move around. This not only occurs in Normal Mode, but Safe Mode, Safe Mode + Network, and Safe Mode + Command Prompt

Computer Starting Lag When I Restart

Jun 3, 2012

I'm having a problem loading windows as well. My computer mid use was starting to seriously lag and when I restarted it it began the dreaded system repair system restore loop. It tries to repair itself again and again and then says it can't and asks if you want to shut it down. This has happened once before and it took me forever looking thru forums to find the solution. I just can't remember what I did. I wanna say I did something with a command line. I don't have a windows disc. And I don't believe I did a complete factory reset the last time either.

Computer Hangs And Can't Restart

Jul 31, 2012

I was shutting down my laptop last night and there was a program (Adobe Reader, I think) that caused it to wait before shutting down. I left it assuming it would eventually shut down. I pushed the power button this morning to turn the computer on, and it says "resuming Windows" and then goes to the screen that says "Logging off". It has been hung up on that screen for over 30 minutes now, so who knows how long it did that last night when it was supposed to shut down. I can press and hold the power button to get it to power down, but when I press the power button again, it starts the same "resuming Windows" stuff all over again. I tried tapping the F8 button when it was restarting, but no luck. I can't use my computer at all, This is a pretty new laptop (Dell), so this is especially frustrating. Not to mention I have LOTS of work to do and I everything is on that laptop.

Computer Slow On Restart

Feb 27, 2012

My computer has been running very slowly lately after I restart it. On average after I restart, it takes noticeably longer to launch and run programs. If I leave it sitting on my desk running, somewhere between 12-36 hours after I restarted, it will run just fine. I defrag my drive regularly, and also run virus scans regularly with Malwarebytes and a few other tools. This has been a problem for a while and I've tried a lot of things to fix it with no luck, including registry defraggers / optimizers, cleaning temp files, CleanMem, and several other tools. I'd love some ideas for things to try.

Computer Won't Start After Successful Restart

Oct 2, 2011

I experienced this problem since I tried to consult my constant BSOD problem in my computer to a 'computer technician', resulting couple of problems, HDD failure and she made a so-called 'tweak' on my BIOS, to make the long story short, she didn't solved my BSOD problem. Ended up buying a new hard disk. I bought a new hard disk and a legit computer technician installed it. No BSOD or anything, my computer runs smoothly and runs like a brand new one, but the problem is my computer won't start after a successful restart. Monitor's light is blinking and the CPU's fan is still running as well as the CPU power button.

Setup Can't Continue, Restart The Computer

May 9, 2009

I'm trying to install Windows 7 but am having problems half way through the setup.

Half way through the install I get the following message "Setup can't continue. Restart the computer and restart Setup. When prompted, try getting the latest updates."

I'm trying to install on a HP Pavilion Entertainment PC (DV6733tx) with Vista service pack 1 installed and 4GB of memory. From the compatibility tests that I have run there shouldn't be any problems.

My partner has also installed from the same disk and it installed properly so we know it's not the disk.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions? I've tried on three separate occasions now and while each time it's progressed a little further, I still end up with the above error message.

Computer Randomly Freezes But Doesn't Restart

Dec 5, 2012

this computer is working away for surveillance purposes. It has been crashing since installation, maybe once every two days. The computer does not restart neither shuts down. It justs freezes, and happened once when I was there. I tried to turn on the display but it acted like nothing was connected, so I could not see if there was a BSOD.I opened the Event Viewer and the last event I can see (for example this very last time, the computer froze at 04:29 AM), under "Error" category, it displays: The device, DeviceHarddisk0DR0 has a bad block. The error appears 3158 times, from 01:12 AM to the time of the crash.Do I have to replace the HDD or would it be something else? [code]
