Yesterday i bought a new keyboard for my laptop and thought while i'm changing keyboard i should open it up and clean the dust within... after assembling (i did everything in place like it was) i came up with a laptop that doesn't boot only powers up the CPU fan working but now showing anything at all and when i try to shut it down it doesn't respond so i have to remove the battery...
Wifi not showing and not connecting to internet but does with cable, Fn+F3 used and showing turning on and off on screen. When I tried installing drivers for this Atheros wifi card I get the message "the device may not be present or could be unplugged", I have fitted a replacement card but still the same. I also have an exclamation mark in the device manager against the Intel(R) 5 series/3400 series chipset family PCI Express Root Port 2 - 3B44. Are these faults somehow connected?
I keep getting an Acer pop-up that says "Please Download Latest Version of Flash Player". I have updated adobe flash player and that didn't work? Its an Acer Aspire 5733 purchased new less than one year ago.
I have an acer aspire 5733-6838. When I log into laptop it may have black background and I have to restart to get it to blue and sometimes I log in I can't access some of my icons or files. Mainly microsoft office starter 10 files
I have a problem with my aspire 5733 fan. Sudenly yesterday it began to make a loud noise (louder than when playing games before). I have noticed that when CPU Temperature is above 50c the fan turns on, and when bellow 50c the fan is off. This happens on both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04. I have had this laptop for less than 3 years.
Why does my E1-521 laptop shut down every time? Regardless of what I select, sleep, hibernate, close lid, it still shuts down. That is not what power buttons are set up to do, seems to make no difference what those settings do. It may be a coincidence, but I think I started having problems when I turned on "OneDrive".. which I can't seem to turn off! Running Windows 8.1....
I have an Aspire V3-571. Please see summary below in bullet points:
1. Used to work fine when connected to my TV (via HDMI cable) 2. One night, when laptop was connected to TV, picture started flickering 3. After 20 minutes, HDMI signal cannot be detected from the laptop 4. Updated Intel HD Graphics 3000 driver (Date: 1/29/2014 Version: 18.104.22.16847) 5. Tried using different HDMI cables 6. Pressing Fn+F5 does not do anything
My TV's HDMI port works with other devices when connected to it. What am I missing here? Is there a hardware defect with my laptop?
I have an acer laptop e1-571 with windows 8. the mb failed ordered a new one installed it. on boot now i get no bootable device. The bios shows the hard drive and its the first in the boot order. If i hit f12 after powering on to access boot options the 3rd choice is efi device windows boot manager. If i select that it boots normally and runs fine. is their a way to boot the machine without having to hit f12 every time and selecting efi device to boot to windows? i tried updating the bios as well.
I have recently purchased Dell Inspiron 15R 5521N laptop with Windows 8 Pro. When I try to connect my laptop to an Acer monitor with an HDMI cable, it gives me a no signal error. But when the same laptop is connected to a Philips monitor using the same cable, it works perfectly. As usual I thought that the monitor was the culprit, but when I connected another laptop to the Acer monitor using the same cable it worked without any errors. So where does the problem lie. The HDMI cable is OK, the laptop is also OK as also the Acer monitor?
Note that this driver thread is currently being populated and developed. I am trying to make sure everything is correct and accurate, and will update as time permits.
Based on dannyres's thread and my other driver threads, I've decided to post the latest drivers that are compatible with the following notebooks using an Intel processor below. It is part of my ongoing, informal commitment to help assist those who had performed clean installs on their HP notebooks. Please let me know if you find newer drivers or other devices so I can update this post!
Compatible notebook products ("xxx" denotes a three-digit number):HP Pavilion Entertainment Notebooksdv6-3xxx series (dv6t and dv6t Select Edition, Intel Core i3/i5/i7 mobile processor)dv7-4xxx series (dv7t and dv7t Select Edition, Intel Core i3/i5/i7 mobile processor)ENVY 17 series (Intel Core i5/i7 mobile processor) NOTE: All of these drivers come from HP's website, Microsoft Update, and from other reputable websites (including other manufacturers). All of the drivers here are WHQL Certified or digitally signed drivers, available as of the date when this post was updated. These drivers should be compatible with the notebook series stated above, but I am not responsible for technical difficulties that can occur as a result of improper driver installation!
Following along the same lines as the other driver threads, the process of installing and updating drivers is for ADVANCED/EXPERIENCED users only. Average users can use the drivers located at the HP support portals -- they're the safest and simplest way to go in terms of drivers for your specific model. Some of these drivers may work with notebooks other than the stated brand and models, but this is NOT guaranteed. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK -- only install these drivers if you know how to revert the changes that you have made should any problems be encountered............
I have a Lenovo G480(Model 20156). My CPU is Intel Core i3 2370M. I have recently added another 1600 MHz RAM. But it is now showing 1333 MHz. I am using windows 8.1. Though I saw that some laptops can enable that by selecting XMP Profile on BIOS. But, my PCs Bios is not showing any option to select XMP profile or even any Advanced AI option.
My question is,
1. How can I resolve this problem and get my 1600 MHz RAM work fully? 2. How can I enable the XMP profile to get the full advantage of my 1600 MHz RAM?
I have an Inspiron N5110, service tag 84J4GR1. Last month, just after the warranty expired, the hard drive failed a test and I ordered a replacement Seagate drive. I followed the instructions to replace the old one but when the computer is powered up, a message comes up "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected boot device and press a key" I have entered the Bios screen and changed the boot up order so that the hard drive is first. I have also run the Diagnostics facility which say that all device working including replacement hard drive. How to get the machine to boot up?
Once again, my Lenovo Thinkpad 430 (running under Windows 7) is persistently selecting whatever the pointer is sitting over. This happens periodically, and it drives me crazy. I've been able to cure this in the past, but today I've been unable to do so. The "Activate a window by hovering over it with a mouse" feature in Windows is NOT selected. Windows is set to require a double-click to open a window. At various times in the past I've disabled the "tapping" feature in the Lenovo touchpad (the touchpad is the only pointer device I use), but today I can't even find those settings to make sure that they are still disabled. What am I forgetting to do?
i have a Dell M5040 when i launch Dell Datasafe 2.0 the section to create Recovery Media has both the USB and CD/DVD grayed out. How do I reset Datasafe in case there was a limit to create only 1 copy of the recovery cds (which are no where to be found)?
I have Dell Inspirion 3520 Laptop, And its come with Window 7 and I have recently its updated with window 8 after this i got a issue that when I start typing the cursor jump to somewhere else or select something.
I bought a ThinkPad 540p that comes with preloaded Windows 8.1. As I want to dual boot the machine I tried to select the Legacy Boot option in the BIOS/Startup tab, but I can't do anything as the option UEFI/Legacy Book is greyed out and locked in "UEFI Only". Below it there is an option called: -CSM Support that is also greyed out and selected as [No]. (below these options there is a little note with an asterisk saying "Unselectable for Secure Boot").
How can I enable the UEFI/Legacy Boot option again in order to dual boot the computer? I want to be able to boot from USB or from the CD Drive.
I recently purchased an FW285D and its been great thus far.. I have been noticing issues with the wireless signal however. I have a dell inspirion 9300 also and it uses intel wireless... MY sony however is currently using the vista wireless system but i did see some intel wireless programs lying around.
Anyway basically when im upstairs in the house the internet cuts in and out constantly.. showing my network then saying its not available. 3 Other people use laptops in the house and they have no problems whatsoever including my dell.. I have it sitting beside my sony and it will stay connected while my sony keeps on having to reconnect. Its truly annoying. Its weird because it shows the wireless signal of my neighbours houses at a higher strength than my own connection and also has them ALWAYS up. No one else in my house gets this problem so i doubt it has something to do with my actual wireless router... which is a linksys WRT300N.
Does anyone have any ideas.. Will the intel wireless be better.. if i double click on the .exe file in my common(ifrmework) folder it just says i need to reinstall the program and restart.....
I recently replaced an old Linksys router with a 1TB Time Capsule. I loved the idea of an integrated solution with passive backups. Unfortunately, I am starting to regret this purchase but I'm hoping that I am just missing something.
The TC sits upstairs in my office where my Linksys used to be. On the main floor, I tried to add my PS3 to the network. It ends up showing a signal strength of about 55%-65%, with NAT Type 3. My old Linksys gave me 85%+, with NAT Type 2. I also noticed that my laptop's network signal strength is four bars when I'm on the main floor, which is one less than with the Linksys.
