Installed a new laser jet printer and can't print multiple pages. Looked the problem up on other forums and it says to disable mopier mode. I can't find this anywhere. Have looked in printer properties and selected device settings tab and it's not there. Is there a different way of doing this on Windows 8 or am I doing completely the wrong thing to solve this problem.
I have an old Dell PC running Windows 7. I just bought a new Samsung PC with Windows 8 loaded. Both have Charter Security Suite loaded. Both access the internet via my WAN connection. I have three browsers loaded: IE, FF, & Chrome. On all three browsers, my old W7 PC loads pages faster. On the Samsung, the pages are slower to load and I have to refresh (hit F5) to get them to render properly.
Other than the OS, I cannot figure out what is the root of this problem. Evidently, a lot of others are having it too (based on reading several posts found using an internet search). The WAN is the same. All 3 browsers have the issue. The virus software is the same. I have nothing else loaded on this new PC.
I'd be happy to try some options and do further testing to try to fix this issue. It does not happen every time with every web page, but it happens much to frequently to ignore. Whenever I come across a slow page, I test it on the old computer and it pulls up quickly.
Web pages freeze some of the time while loading. I have to use "refresh" in order to get the page to load totally. This freeze problem only occurs while I am on the internet and does not take place when I am running programs other than on the internet. It happens when using either IE or Chrome.
I'm so fed up with Adobe Acrobat -- why do I need to install 2GB of software to do simple .doc to .pdf conversions. So I'm curious, is there a free, or relatively inexpensive solution to do the following?
1. Convert Word documents into PDF. 2. Convert web pages into PDF from a web browser.
I have a Dell Latitude E6500. Before tonight, I was running Windows 7. I decided to update to Windows 8 and now I am unable to get any web pages to load. My wireless is connected but no pages will load when I open IE.
I can't imagine I am the only one who has run in to this.
Maybe it's a device driver; but I can't get to the Dell site to do any diagnostics.
I've resisted updating to Win 8.1 since it's release, Win 8, for me, is confusing enough! I finally decided to update to Win 8.1, downloaded/installed it, and now, periodically, pages won't load while browsing the Internet. It hangs up for 30 seconds or so then shows "This page Can Not be Displayed." I click the "fix" button to repair whatever is wrong and get the same explanation, "You are not connected to a network," close the information box and the page I was going to comes on. I watch my Network Connections while 8.1 is "fixing" the problem and it always shows I'm connected. 8.1, while "fixing" the problem, will disconnect my laptop from the network, momentarily, then reconnect it. It will work fine for a few minutes then it starts all over again. I have a second Win 7 laptop I run at the same time to see if it also gets disconnected and it runs fine, while the 8.1 machine is supposedly not connected.
I didn't have the problem before I downloaded 8.1. I don't have the problem on my Win7 laptop or desktop PC.The problem happens at all times of the day/night and at no specific time.
I have been getting this very annoying BSOD when ever I try to watch videos on a web browser or open multiple (youtube?) pages.
My default browser is google chrome but this error also occurs in firefox and internet explorer. I have tried disabling hardware acceleration but the problem still occurs. I've also replaced the RAM(memtest didn't show any errors) but that didn't solve the issue. I've also used different drivers for my GPU and the problem still occurs.
I can play graphically demanding games without a hitch but it's the browsers that are causing this problem.
I used bluescreen view to get a better idea of what's causing this and it shows that tcpip.sys is what causes the crash. A crash that occured last night was caused by ntoskrnl.exe+29652f and tcpip.sys+16bba1.
My system is a: Win 8.1 64Bit AMD Phenom II x4 955 AMD HD Sapphire 7850 8GB of DDR3 1600mhz RAM 256GB SSD Crucial MX100(OS) 320GB WD HDD(Data) 60GB SSD OCZ Vertex(Games)
And my wifi adapter is a Tenda wireless N150.
I tried using theSF diagnostic tool to capture the BSOD dump but when trying to install it said it needed framework which it was not able to download.
My browser of choice is Firefox but I have the same problems in Chrome also. First a little background. I'm running Windows 8.1 for the last month and up until 1 week ago I had Roadrunner light with download speeds around 9 to 10 Mbps. Last week I upgraded to higher speed Roadrunner and am now getting download speeds of around 35 Mbps consistently.
Now my problem: Several forum pages that I frequent USED to load instantly and when clicking on a post would load instantly. Now certain pages may take up to 45 seconds to 1 minute or sometimes not at all. This happens most of the time but not all the time. This happens whether I'm using Firefox, Chrome or IE. I have cleared cookies, history, search, cache in an attempt to solve this problem.
By "Slow" I mean from 20-30 seconds to X minutes, or never...
WIN 8.1.0 STD with IE 11 and Chrome - under Classic Shell on HP/Compaq Desktop 100 (1,48/8GB) F-Secure 1.99. When disabled for testing, no change Connected to: Netgear Genie WNA 1100 Wireless USB adapter (Reports 150 Mbps) Connected to: Gigabyte Aircruiser Ultra N Router GN-BR32L-RH (WPA2-PSK) Cable Connected to: ISP Cable modem 50/10 connection. Speedtest from ISP/Authority show normal result.
Same setup OK under previous XP machine with IE 10 and Chrome. By the way: IE 11 do not render most web pages correctly either, switching to Chrome where necessary.
I've got a new desktop which is connected to my house wifi using an USB adaptor. The signal quality is constantly at 5 bars but I find myself frequently having to refresh multiple times whenever I load a new page on the browser either because it's not loading or pictures or not showing. Pages become near impossible to load when i am downloading stuff(torrents, upgrades, games etc). Also noticed other computers in the house are also affecting mine when they are in the process of downloading files. Torrents, updates all make it impossible for me to browse the net. Pages literally refuse to be loaded at all whenever something is downloading. I also have to infrequently refresh pages even when nothing is downloading because it's not loading or pictures are not showing. None of the other computers are affected however.
Any program that requires an internet access is also struggling to get connected. I had to use direct links to install certain programs such as Adobe reader/flash. It's often impossible to check for updates in programs or even sign on to clients like Steam/Origin which requires a connection. I had to try for ages before it signed in online but it's still having trouble loading images and such.
What is strange however is that I'm having no issues holding a connection when downloading bigger files such as direct downloads, windows update, steam game downloads and torrents. No drop outs that I've noticed. But it is faily slow averaging 400kb/s.
Everything else in my house including my laptop, another desktop, ipad and phone works fine. No issue browsing the net while downloading.
Wireless is connected through an USB adaptor pluged in to the back of my desktop. I've tried two adaptors (ASUS USB-N13 and Linksys AE1200) and both of them runs into the same problems. Running windows 8.1 and using ESET NOD32 as an antivirus with the windows firewall turned on. Desktop specs are as follows:
CPU: i5 4670K Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H RAM: G.Skill Ares F3-1866C9D-8GAB 8GB (2x4GB) GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SSD: Samsung 840 EVO Series 250GB HDD: Seagate 2TB OS: Windows 8.1
This is extremely frustrating and has never happened with any other computers I've used before.
I have Windows 8.1 - Google Chrome will not load pages at all.I bought this computer brand new about 1 month ago. Google chrome browser was working great until the day before yesterday - all of a sudden, will no longer load pages.- am overwhelmed with all of the posts about 8.1 issues.
I have been trying to print web pages but all I get is the Page 1 of _ on the top and the file name and date on the bottom. The rest of the sheet is blank. I have no problem printing excel documents, just web pages.
My OS is windows 8 and browser is google chrome.pages are loading after refreshing about 30-40 times and even if they load,it is not proper (ie images not displayed....etc).here is the link to video showing the problem..
I am not able to load any pages using Firefox or Internet explorer. I have tried resetting my windsock and itp and it still won't work. I've also tried deleting any 3rd party firewalls I had but that didn't work either. I just got this laptop a week ago too so ya.
On my office network none of the computers connected to it have problems surfing the web, except my own. Pages fail to load 75% of the time, I use Google Chrome and Firefox but they both have the same problem. I've scanned my pc for malware and viruses using Malwarebytes and Bitdefender (separately of course) and they've come back clear. I've reset the tcp ip stack (a pain in Windows 8) taking full control of netsh via the regedit key (running it as admin), then wiping the wifi profile, following with a dns flush and finalizing with restarting the computer. Once restarted I can navigate the internet problem free for a few pages and then I go back to having issues. I can't reinstall Windows 8 because I don't have a disc or a partition (upgraded from Win7 to 8 pro online, which I admit was a huge mistake).
I am running on : Windows 8.1 Pro AMD Athlon 2 P320 Dual Core Processor 2.10Ghz 8.00GB RAM, 64 bit OS, x64 processor.
After upgrading from Windows 8 to 8.1, Internet pages and emails load slowly. After reporting this to a 2nd level MS Support person, he still hasn't fixed it though he has spent a lot of time on it so far. I finally Googled about the issue and found that many others were having the same problem. I have heard that disabling IPv6 has corrected the problem. I tried it but I couldn't do the last step to create a new DWord. After upgrading, I installed the latest drivers for the motherboard.t's about like the days of dial-up modems! Why can't Microsoft resolve this issue soon? I have checked my Internet connection for "speed" and it's not the problem. The only thing I changed was the OS.
since getting windows 8.1, I find it does not have a right click print option. Others I have contacted say theirs does give right click print, is there a hidden menu somewhere to add options to the right click menu?
A newbie to Windows 8.1 (moving from XP!)...The new PC seemed to detect and install the drivers needed for our Canon MP610 no problem and I have successfully printed from Word. But when I open a saved pdf, it doesn't print: it just endlessly says 'spooling'.
