I have bought a new wireless adapter as my old one had very poor strength and I am really impressed with the signal on this one but after a while it disconnects and then it says there are no available connections. I have to restart the adapter to get it to work again.
If I am gaming online and this happens it's not very useful and I could really do with fixing it.
The adapter is the TL-WN822N by TP-Link.
I have checked the compatibility on the vendor list and it is compatible. I installed the drivers off their website which were 64bit.
I get an error showing specific module missing while trying to install MS Office 2013... I uninstalled older version using Microsoft fix it also..... Even that's is of no use... How to over come this error
I'm trying to install Visio Pro 2013 on my Windows 8.1 business laptop running Office 365. This is a new PC so the only things installed on it are 64 bit versions of Office.
When attempting to install, I get an error that the Office Extensibility Component is a 32 bit Office piece. I've tried to uninstall this component on my personal PC and it rendered Office 365 unusable. I had to perform a System Restore to get it working again. I don't want to attempt this on my work PC.
32 Bit Office has never been on this PC. How did the Component get here?
How can I safely install Visio 2013 Professional?
Couldn't paste error message into screen, so I attached a file image.
I'm trying to register the .ocx's mentioned above.I first put the .ocx's in the windows/system32, and thereafter ran the regsvr32 command in cmd (as an administrator). I also tried to register them from the windows/SYSwow64. (I run x86).
However, I get the following error for both of the attempts:
The module ".ocx" failed to load Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.
Over the last few days I built a new PC with ASUS A87 Pro MB, no PCIe cards, and Samsung ssd 840 Pro boot drive. Lots of changes on a daily basis. For a while, the FAST STARTUP hybrid boot was working. Then it stopped, and I'm trying to debug it.
When PAST STARTUP is enabled in power options, I get a repeatable Critical Error - Windows did not shut down properly, and the startup time is as long as it would be without FAST STARTUP enabled. There are no BSODS, and no apparent harm from the Critical Shutdown error.
Whenever I turn on WLAN in my router, the whole network suffers from an incredible latency. No online game is playable, but the download speed itself is not being touched (i.e. fullspeed) and websites load - even if they're a bit slower, it seems. Once I'm switching WLAN off, it is all back to normal again.
I have really no clue about the source of this evil and due to the nature, it's actually hard to google, as you'd only find problems of people that have high latency over the WLAN devices. I'm experiencing all this stuff on my normal LAN PCs as well, though.
Here's a result from an online ping test with an american server. so, no packet loss.
--- xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ping statistics --- 20 packets transmitted, 20 packets received, 0.0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 108.842/1149.351/2727.156/878.843 ms
So we got this computer brand new with Windows 7. We wanted Windows 8, and performed an clean install of Windows 8, manually formatting the partitions, meaning deleting of every recovery partitions and so on. Windows 8 booted fine, and everything worked fine, installed new drivers through Samsungs own "Windows 8 SW update"-software. Installed new updates through windows update, and everything seemed to work just fine.
But then, suddenly when the PC have been left alone for a while, and I think I can provoke the same issue by hibernate and start up again, the wifi can't connect to the wireless network, which the networks router could be found 1 meter aside. You then get the "network available"-symbol, and we can go on and try to connect to the network. The PC tries to connect for a while, and then it seems to just kill the wlan-card, like it has been disabled, and now the PC freeze. We now have to hard-reboot it, and wait for login, and then clean reboot it, and then again at login everything works fine. To the next time the PC have been left alone.
So the problem look like this; hibernation->wifi connection lost->wifi available->re-connecting to wifi->wlan-card disabled->PC freeze
What we have tried is to uninstall all wifi-drivers, install different drivers, from Samsungs site, windows pre-installed drivers, driver software-drivers and so on. Just to add, we also have this 7 series computer from Samsung, everything works fine.
It's a new HP laptop, the m6-1158. I purchased it about three months ago. When I got it, I updated the network card directly from Intel to the latest driver. When I started having issues around a month ago, I reinstalled the OEM driver from HP. When awaking my computer from its sleep, the network card would find my network but it would not connect. It would say, roughly, unable to connect. Eventually I can get it to work by deleting and re-adding the connection several times. The problem doesn't occur every time I awaken my computer, but maybe once every three times.
There have been some changes in my network. I added a wireless extender and set it up on the same SSID. I also changed my wireless security from WPA/WPA2 to just WPA2. I have seen the same problem occur on another Windows 8 laptop in my network.
When running Intel's WiFi troubleshooter, it fails on the association test.
Every time the connection fails, I get the following error in Event Viewer:
my WLAN Autoconfig, windows keeps telling me that the service isn't running - I've noticed when I run Services.msc that it's usually not on, so I start it up which seemed to have solved the problem yesterday but today - not so much...
So now it's not showing visible wireless networks (all working fine on the network with other pc's on xp), doesn't seem to respond to going into flight mode etc.
All drivers are up to date for the laptop (it's probably only a couple of months old).
I keep getting BSODs after building a new PC and installing Win 8. The error I am getting from my Intel event log says: 2000 Error communicating with WLAN device.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the WLAN drivers but am not having any luck. I have found newer driver versions but none of the driver installs take now. Seems like the driver that was installed is now corrupt, or parts of it are lingering. When I uninstall the device and driver from Windows (cause I don't need it), Windows finds it when auto scanning for hardware and then I get another BSOD.
The ethernet device that seems to be having the issue is a Killer e2200 built into my MSi Gaming 5 Motherboard.
If I try and save anything in Documents, Pictures. Music or Videos I get the message : "Document .library-ms" is no longer working. It says I can delete these files - the files stored will not be affected . But I need these libraries to store stuff...
today I was makeing an essey in microsof office and suddenly my mouse and keyboard. stopped working, replugging the devices didn't worked (did it for 5 times ) , after this I tried to restart the pc I found out that rr button doesn't do anything , after I stopped the power going to pc and open power + pc they worked for only a few seconds and then stopped again . After a few force shutdown( by stopping the power) the pc closes itself after the windos 8 img dissapear . I have a desktop dual core 3.1, 4gb ram , mouse is usb and the keyboard is with Ps/2 .
Update : after waiting 30 min I reopend it, all worked , but after approximate 3 min pc shuted down by itself.
when I try to open IE. a small window pops up and says IE has been stopped and will not work. What should I do to get it to start working again?
Firefox works but has at the bottom right and left of the screen two vibrating windows telling me I need to update a program that is already updated. Plus, has a x and HIDE button, but only hides the screen a little over a quarter of the way.
Chrome I hate to say works pretty good, but everytime I open it three small Malware windows open at the Top Right of the screen one on top of the other and my Malware program blocks it to be Quarantined !
For some reason the Windows 7 style desktop snap has stopped working, I can still snap a metro app to the side of my monitor but not an ordinary program like note pad. I used to either drag the window to the side of the screen or press Windows Key and an arrow to snap it to the left or the right.
I updated my os from 8 to 8.1 a few months back. I put a password and pin as sign in options, and have been using the pin ever since.
I started my pc today and noticed it was asking for the password not the pin. Since, I had not been using it, I forgot the password. There is no 'sign in options' for me to switch to the pin. I have tried almost every password that I might have put, but no luck. I'm sure I must have put some hint for the password, but it didn't show up even once.
There is an option to access my Microsoft account, but since I don't have any saved WiFi networks, that's not an option.
When I try clicking the start button, it doesn't work. I move my mouse to the right side of the screen, and the bar doesn't come up. Same with moving my mouse to the top left corner of the screen. I checked the properties by right clicking the task bar. The corner navigation options are checked off to show them when I move my mouse to the different corners.
Recently my monitor stopped responding after being turned off (after 15 minutes). It didn't happen before. I don't know what to do. Should I disable turning off the monitor altogether? I lose all my work when this happens because the only way to get the laptop working again is to press the power button which restarts the computer although the settings are actually that it should go into hibernation when I press the power button, which it does if the display is working, but if it stops responding it restarts the laptop. No other keys work or do anything when this happens.
Twice in last 2 weeks, some of my tiles (Games, Bing News, Store, People, Mail, etc.) have just stopped responding.When clicked, I get a blank screen, then the full Start Screen re-appears.Other tiles such as Chrome, Word and Outlook work OK.When this first happened, I did a system restore, and the problem went away, but this time the restore point seems to have gone too.The 'Change PC Settings' does not work either, as I decided to try a complete refresh, but can't access that.
About two weeks ago I began to notice strange behavior on my PC which made me think it may be a virus. Some examples:
1. When I'm online a message window frequently appears stating "internet explorer has stopped working"
2. Some websites do not display adverts on the page. I've attached a screenshot from youtube to illustrate what I'm referring to.
3. Some webpages will not load. I keep seeing "webpage under maintenance at this time". This is typical for websites at certain times but to see it every time I try to access is suspicious.
4. I use Hotmail and typically the first time I start it up in the day I notice that the first email I open causes the entire page to go blank as if it erases everything on it, it then reopens with all of my emails listed and finally the email I began to read will reopen. This only happens after I boot my system and open the first email. This will not happen on any other computer.
5. I seem to be having issues installing certain programs. They won't install citing various reasons such as outdated files, incompatible etc. These were all working flawlessly prior to reformatting my system.
6. I'm unable to post messages even though I'm logged in. When I type a message I see the timer cycling but it never posts my messages, it's as if it's stuck in a loop or frozen.
Having felt that a system reformat was in order I did just that not more than a week ago. Everything was reinstalled and updated. Once all the Windows 8 files were installed I began to notice the exact same problems surfacing immediately. I'm currently using Win 8 with IE 10. 16 GB RAM, 64 bit OS. The computer itself is an HP and a year old.
I have windows 8 pro in my desktop.When i started to run nfs mw 1 it opened but while loading for gameplay it stops working and windows says that there is a problem to work the program properly,so i will have to close it.I have tried for all compatibility mode but its still does not work.
I've been burning some dvds and loaded in the next dvd to burn and it the drive couldnt see that there was a disc put in. So I thought maybe the dvd was faulty and tried a few more - the dvd rw drive didnt read that there were blank dvds put in. So I put a dvd that was finished burning in and still nothing.
Recently I updated my laptop and when it was finished updating the keyboard no longer worked. Before the update it worked fine and I had no problems. I restarted it several times and restored it but still nothing. Now I am stuck using the on screen keyboard which is difficult. I also went to try and fix it using device manager but it wasn't listed.
