My son broke the connector for the headphone inside my laptop. Now the speaker array will not work because it is muted when headphones are in. Is there a way to usurp the headphones so that I can get the speakers to work again?
I had a Dell MFP1600n laser printer given to me a while back (Praise the Lord) & it came at the right time as I was destitute then & couldn't afford cartridges for a Canon I960.Here's the rub.There was no problem connecting & using the printer with a wired connection to a Linksys WRT54GS & a wired XP Desktop & a wireless XP Desktop (both older 86X systems).Though the 64 bit, wireless, Windows 7 laptop connected through the same router to the internet. As usual, it would not & still does not "see the XP machines". It also would not, through multiple configurations, connect to this printer.At first I tried to update the driver, but Dell only had XP 32 bit available. After hours & days of wasted time with "Add printer", I resorted to using a flash drive for the few times I needed to print something from this infernal Windows 7 machine.
I finally wondered if my head was stuck in the "soon to be obsolete, XP mode".'know, this isn't the first time Microsoft has Pi**ed me off & I understand that we are all "beta testing" a product that we have paid several hundred dollars for. I also understand the reason for security, but I don't want to spend 50% or better of my time trying to use an OS that cannot tell ME from a scumbag intruder. There are AV programs for that...As it came installed on my laptop (& of course I received no restore or install disks whatsoever with it), I'm stuck with trying to repair, rather than reformat. Unless I wish to pi** away a bunch more money to Microsoft.
I have a Dell E6400 Latitude laptop and I've been having issues with the wireless connection. Hopefully you guys haven't answered this question recently, I couldn't find anything when I searched.
Anyway, it says that Windows Wireless Service is not running when I try to troubleshoot my wireless connection. It doesn't give me the option to try to connect or anything. I've tried downloading the latest drivers for Windows 7 32-bit on Dell's driver's page related to Wifi 5300 and LAN to no avail. I've also tried to start WLAN AutoConfig through Services but I get this error: Error 193: 0xc1.
Just built a new rig, having this issue with my Gigabyte 7970 GHz Edition.In my power settings I have it set to turn the monitor off after 15 minutes. The issue is that when I return to my computer, it doesn't regain the connection. Tested with both HDMI and DVI inputs, same issue. Doesn't matter if I disconnect and reconnect the monitor, nothing. Only way to solve it is by forcing a restart.
Basically I'm creating an ad hoc for my other laptop to connect to a 'main' laptop that is of course connected to the modem. So can anyone explain to me why is the 'turn on internet connection sharing' is missing. I can find my created ad hoc but since internet connection is not turned on I can't have access.
I just recently ran in to an extremely frustrating problem with my laptop. I have an asus laptop, it's one of the gaming models. Just recently, it has shown that wireless connectivity is turned off whenever i boot up my computer. The thing is, though, that the manual switch to enable wireless connectivity is switched on. Whenever i attempt to switch it off, then back on, the graphic that pops up on your screen showing that wireless connectivity is disabled pops up even when i switch it on. It does the same exact thing when i use fn + f2, only the graphic saying that it's disabled pops up every time i press it, and wireless connectivity stays disabled no matter what. I have absolutely no idea what to do, this literally just happened out of no where when i booted up my computer yesterday.
wireless was working fine on my toshiba laptop but not the light has gone out on the switch at the front and wont turn back on. I cant connect to the net wireless. I can still connect through ethernet cable though.I tried FN F8 and that doesnt work either. I checked the drivers and all says its working fine and the latest drivers are installed. all updates are current
I have a toshiba satallite Laptop that will connect to the network and work but will not work on wireless. the different connections do show up in the connection list but when you try to connect to one of them they do not connect.The function F8 key will not turn wireless on or off.this model does not have a switch or button in the front to activate the wireless.
I've read many threads about Acer laptops, but I couldn't turn on my Wi-Fi adaptor. I've got Acer TravelMate C110 and when I installed Windows 7 (Home Premium 32bit) I can't turn on my Wireless Network. I've installed Launch Manager from Acer's site and it says that Wireless is always on, but it really isn't :/ The external button don't work either.
I have a desktop computer, and have a D-Link DWA-510 wireless network adapter installed. Though I cannot pick up any wireless networks even though I know there are wireless networks as my iPhone picks them up.
I have tried the following:
1/ Clicking on the wireless/internet icon (not sure what to called it, it's the icon that brings up network and sharing) located on the bottom right of the bottom task bar. though no networks show up.
2/ Adding a new wirless network via 'Network and Sharing' option - though when windows does a search for networks it never stops searching.
3/ Installing the new drivers from the D-Link website
If I look at the back of the tower the network card that I have the external antenna connected to has one static green light lit. So I gather it is installed correctly as it is lit and it was installed when I brought the computer, although if I go to device manager it is not listed under Networks?!. I have triedto search on turning the wireless capability on though I cannot find a solution that actualy turns it on.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 Laptop and stuck windows 7 RTM 32 bit on it. All was well but now connecting wirelessly is slow. Like slower then 56k modem slow. I have a Dell 802.11n wireless mini card installed that works PERFECTLY under windows XP. I was getting 80 % signal strength under Win 7 and getting 1 mbps where as in XP I was getting 78 to 100 mbps with the same signal strength. Oh and ethernet works perfectly fine.
For a time I was able to download the corresponding vista driver from dell and then replace the driver that win 7 automatically installs for it, then flipped the card switch off and on and it would work like it should for a while, but then reverted to the same slow network speeds once the laptop was reset or turned off and on. Now flipping the switch or re-installing doesn't work either. I've tried resetting the router, no go and none of my other computers or products have a problem with it. I've tried doing a few things suggested in other posts, like assigning a static ip, disabling ipv6, etc... Nothing has worked.
I'd love someone who knows what it may be or has heard of this precise problem, although I think I may be stuck waiting until Win 7 makes it debut in Oct and until Dell releases a proper 7 driver for it.
Just yesterday my I year old punched the keyboard of my Notebook here and there when I was working. I show a couple of dialogs popping up and getting closed when he was punching. And all of sudden I lost my wireless connection, in a strange way.
The WIFI card is disabled, the physical button on the laptop is red indicating that it is disabled. When I press it to switch the wifi back on, the switch don�t respond WWhen I run network diagnostic: error is: Wireless capability is turned off. But I see no option to turn it on. I checked the network adapters through the Control panel and also in the device manager. They are up and running. No yellow sign, no �!� marks. Restarted several times. No change. Restarted in safe mode. Deleted the device in device manager and reinstalled. No change. Disabled firewall. No change. (DO I need to restart after disabling?) Checked the manual for Key combinations to toggle wireless on off. But there were non.
I have just installed windows 7 on my Fujitsu Siemens amilo pro V3405 and my wireless is not working . The function F10 does not turn it on and it says it is working properly in the device manager, it is also enabled in the BIOS.
My xps 410 Dell computer won't turn on. What happens is I turn it on it says to start normally or startup repairs when I click startup repairs it says it can't fix it. When I start normally gets to the multi-colored flag (windows loading screen) and sits there for about 30 seconds to a minute than it either restarts or goes to a black screen and than it has yellow letters surrounded by a small blue rectangle saying "Out of range" I don't know what to do, but what I do know is that I can boot my computer into safe mode which I'm in right now (safe mode with networking)
Just got this desk top commputer(used)with Windows 7 Ultimate on it and upon installing my wireless adapter found that I am not connecting to the internet.After reading quite a few help programs and troubleshooters I have run services.msc tried to turn on WLAN autoconfig and got an error:1068.Also cmd promt: sc query wzcsvc and got:The specified service does not exist as an installed service. use a wireless connection with this computer.
Ok so I just got a new computer and I ordered it with a wireless adapter card. The adapter was backordered so I used an ethernet cable until it arrived. I tested the connection speeds with testinternetspeed.org (legit or not idk. results were pretty consistent.) With just LAN i got 8Mbps download. With just the wireless i got 15Mbps. For the hell of it I tried it with both in. I got 45Mbps. With such a good connection I would love to keep it like that but my question is will this setup potentially harm my new PC?
I have dell laptop -wireless connection; windows 7 os; vostro; my kids used computer last night; i wake up this morning- cant connect to internet; i have tried everything; i must have done about 5 system restores using different dates - no luck; tried safe mode.
Windows Home Premium 64. my wireless connection drops about twice a day. Sometimes, it takes the wireless router with it. I have a bunch of stuff on the wireless network, but it seems my laptop is the only one causing a problem. My primary card is a intel n-1030, but I've also tried a wireless usb adapter and have the same issue. I have even tried a different router. Same result. updated drivers, flused the DNS.
I have a Wireless Trendnet TEW-432BRP router. My wireless internet connection keeps dropping every 30 minutes. After it drops it usually reconnects by it self in like 1minute. This is getting to be annoying since this occurs a lot while I play online games. This router has been perfectly working fine before. It is connected to the computer using an Ethernet cable
I decided to buy a new Router to try and get some quicker speeds, no luck so far, heres what I have.Qwest DSL modem only 1.5Mbps connect to A Cisco Linksys E2000 Advanced Wireless-N Router with a CAT6 cable going between the modem and the router?Between the router and my DESKTOP computer I get 1 Gbps, but my speed for wireless is still only 54Mbps, I thought I could get this up to 150.
before I installed my new antivirus and firewall, my wireless connection was working fine. Now when I try to connect, there are no networks to connect to. The wireless light is on and wireless is enabled on the computer I'm trying to connect with, the only problem I'm having is that the network won't show up, before there was a few in the list and now nothing. I've burned some time trying to figure it out,
I have an acer aspire 5738z laptop with windows 7. I hadan issue with the screen sent it off for repair and it has come back and the wireless Internet won't work. I've tried everything, the wireless will be either very poor and then turn off or just doesnt work at all. When I try and connect to talktalk my Internet provider it says, windows was unable to connect, it has mentioned the wireless adaptor
Any way to speed up how fast Windows 7 home premium connects to my hotspot?Seems to take forever every time I connect. The blue circle just rotates for a couple minutes then it connects. What's the delay?
Just found out that my neighbour can access my ISP via my wireless 802-11g connection. And I can access via his connection...Not a good situation. I have checked security settings in both my router and Windows 7 network connection. I have checked that WPA2-PSK security and AES encryption is selected and a 8 digit network security key is current. I have disabled sharing. When connecting the network does not ask for a network security key but connects instantly and functions correctly I can see but cannot connect to another neighbours connection because it asks for a network security key and I do not have it.
