Acer :: Applications Crashing, Not Able To Find Any Networks, Not Able To Turn My Firewall On

Jan 17, 2009

my Acer travelmate 5720 (same laptop that had problems last time) running Windows Vista Home Premium has recently been having some problems.


-Any of the Acer Empowering Technology Applications crash uncontrollably

-I can't find any networks, and it's not my router I checked.

-My windows firewall won't turn on which is strange.

-There might be other problems but I haven't found any others yet

I have run a "Deep" virus scan and found nothing.

Acer :: 6920G WLAN Can Find Networks But Unable To Connect

Nov 7, 2008

WLAN is shown in device manager as functional, it even can find networks in range and everything. But when I want to connect to a network it gets to a point when it asks me for the username and pass, and stops there. The error sometimes says that it can't identify the server or that i should just try to reconnect. I tried connecting to various networks, and I can't even make it tell me that my pass is wrong... It seems that it isn't able to communicate with the server. It passes Intel wlan tests until the 'association' test.

Rainstalling the drivers and/or the windows didn't help, should I send it for RMA?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T520 / Windows 7 - Suddenly Receiving Random BSOD And Applications Crashing

Apr 10, 2013

I've been running on a T520 4239-CTO for a little over a year now without issue.  I've been getting lots of random bsod and services crashing in the last few days; even Windows 7 cannot validate itself anymore.
I ran all the hardware checks in the provided Lenovo utilities and it all seems to pass.  I didn't trust this so I manually checked the smart values on the hard disk and noticed around 2400+ reallocated sectors so I decided to replace the hard disk.
It should be noted that there are no viruses/malware on this machine.  After receiving the new hard disk I did a factory restore using the dvd backups I made when I received the machine.  Upon booting the new factory install on the new disk I'm still getting the same random bsod and issues with Windows 7 not being able to validate.
I notice that everytime I boot now on the newly restored os that the "Microsoft Software Protection Platform" service has issues and cannot start.  I started doing some updates using the Thinkvantage tools and they're crashing too.
This machine is currently on pass 4 of memtest without any errors so far.
I've replaced the hard drive and from the looks of things so far the ram seems fine.  Where do I go from here?

HP Pavilion Dv7 OS/Software :: Can't Reset / Turn On Firewall

Jan 1, 2012

I have a HP Pavilion dv7 notebook with Windows 7 64-bit.  Last week after I was attacked by some virus that's called Win 7 I installed a virus removal program Super Anti Spyware Free Edition.  The problem went away but so did my ability to access the Firewall.  I tried a few different options from the Microsoft site like trying to find it on the services menu, it wasn't there.  I tried saving a repair sequence in Notepad then running as administrator from the desktop that didn't work either.  Every time I try to reset the firewall an error code pops up. Error code- 0x80070424
Now I have to keep jumping around from different user accounts on the computer because the same malware/virus keeps trying to pop up.  It keeps trying to make me buy the full version even though it appears to be nothing wrong with the computer according to other programs.  i googled it and it's a scam to get you to pay for something you don't need.

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: Cannot Find WiFi Networks

Jun 8, 2014

I have Inspiron 3521 laptop with Windows 8 and Dell Wireless 1703 Card. After I start Windows it cannot find the wifi adapter and any wifi networks (including mine). If I reboot the Windows a few times it finds the adapter and connects to the wifi, however after 10-15 minutes Windows freezes and restarts. Is this a hardware or software problem? How could I sort this problem out?

Acer :: Aspire Firewall

Sep 28, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5610. every time I switch the laptop on a warning bubble appears warning me that my firewall is not turned on. I go to my control panel and the firewall icon there but when I open the firewall settings it is on. Do I need to download a new version or something?? Not seen this before.

A guy also attempted to fix my laptop when it broke last year and since then the acer orbican webcam hasn't worked. the message says to check connection and that it isnt being used by another user. Do I need to download a new driver?

Acer :: AC Power Interfering With Wired Networks- Ferrari 4002

Feb 17, 2009

I've got an Acer Ferrari 4002 I bought back in 2005. It's been a great laptop so far.

Last year I had the ac adapter burnt out by a shortcircuit apparently and had to get a replacement adapter.

It's worked great so far, but lately I've noticed that my laptop can not connect to wired broadband or dial up when on ac power, it only works on the laptop battery but it only lasts for about 40 mins!

USB adsl however works.

Can we say for sure this is a hardware problem? Or could it also be a software related seeing that my laptop has been behaving funny lately as it can not hibernate properly and all.

Feb 9, 2015

Laptop stopped detecting Wifi. Hovering over signal bars indicates connectioins available. When trying to connect shows no connections available. Have tried cycling the (F3) wifi switch, checked updated drivers. Router is fine and was reset several times. The laptop will not detect any wifi network (all are seen by several other phones and computers).  Is this a broken antenna?

Apple :: Firewall Settings For A MAC

Feb 15, 2010

some solid firewall settings for a MAC? Would be using the native firewall.

Also, what is the best anti-virus (freeware) to use? I'm not looking for debate on how an Apple OS doesn't need it. Just what is the best and most widely used freeware. not familiar with MACs.

Feb 3, 2009

I've been on here considering getting a Macbook for sometime, and I finally got one!

A few questions for a new user:

-As far as security, what kind of Firewall should I set up, it comes with three options and none of them sounded right?

-Is there any word processing software that comes with my Mac?

-Any things I should do to it right now to make it as fast as possible? (Certain settings, delete some programs, etc)

Acer :: Travelmate 5720 Crashing When Playing Video

Aug 9, 2008

Firstly I know very little on thsi kind of stuff so please excuse my lack of knowledge.

I've had my travelmate 5720 for about 4 months, and for as long as I have had it, it crashes when I play any kind of video. Not straight away, it may be after 2 minutes or after an hour. But if I'm playing a movie, its almost guaranteed to crash to a blue screen, and the system reboots. Its too random to try recreate the problem instantly, other than just playing a movie and...waiting.

Apple :: A Firewall Application To Control Both Incoming And Outgoing Traffic

Aug 18, 2009

if anyone can recommend a firewall application that controls both the incoming and the outgoing traffic. The built in firewall protects from incoming request, but I'd like to control the outgoing connections as well. I did a search and found 1 thread, but it's more than a year old.

Little Snitch and WaterRoof (and its simpler version NoobProof) seem to fit the bill. Any recommendation besides these?

Dell XPS 14 :: No WiFi Networks Found

Feb 4, 2013

I bought the new DELL XPS 14 ULTRABOOK  about a month ago and since then i have had recurring non stop wifi issues !

it starts, when the computer goes in to sleep mode and it "wakes up" not able to find networks.

then, it just randomly stops finding networks and disconnects in the middle of usage.

and then, the wifi card is not detected AT ALL by the device manager.

I called dell support and they replaced my WIFI card. it worked for about a week and a half give or take and now im writing this post connected to my iphone 3G network through usb cable. luckily, the iphone is not using USB 3.0 protocol or else i wouldnt be able to do even that BECAUSE THE USB 3.0 PORTS ARE NOT WORKING TOO !

HP G72 Networking :: Intel 7260 No Wireless Networks Found

Aug 9, 2014

I came across an intel 7260 card and installed it in my HP G72 with no problems.  The notebook boots into Windows 7 64 bit with no errors.  As soon as everything loads I try to connect to the internet and get "No Wireless networks found".  I was using the intel wireless manual troubleshooter which stated the "radio is off" I checked the f12 key and have a blue light.  Device Manager sees the adapter with no errors.  The windows mobility center has the wifi network area greyed out.  The Hp Wireless Assistant only shows bluetooth.  I switched out that card for the old card and can access my network. if there is an fn key combo I need to press or a command I can enter in the command prompts or a regestry setting that needs to be changed.

HP Pavilion DV6-7014nr Networking :: Unable To Detect Any Networks

Jul 4, 2014

I just installed a Windows 7 64 Bit (Professional) onto my HP Pavilion DV6-7014nr, and now it is unable to detect any networks. I checked device manager and there is not even a tab for network adapters and the only message I see on diagnostics is "Install a driver for your network adapter. Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. If you have a network adapter, you will need to re-install the driver." Where do I find the specific driver I need and how do I get it onto my laptop without being able to use the internet on it? Also, I noticed under "Other devices" in the device manager that almost everything under it has the yellow triangle mark next to it, like for the ethernet controller, network controller, PCI device, USB controller, etc.

Acer :: Acer 5610-4610- ACER Disk Formatter Cannot Find Any Drives

Dec 31, 2009

I have an Acer 5610-4610 system. It was repartitioned to one XP drive for several years. I am finally wanting to put the PQ service partition back on it but none of the folders of the restore CD's have any of the files needed to recreate this partition. I am wanting to put the factory (VISTA Home Premium) system on C. With all the system files and folders from the 3 restore CD's into the PQSERVICE partition. I have no clue how to proceed.

I do remember there was an acer(C) partition and a data (D) partition when I got it. The PQSERVICE partition was there back then.

The first (System) CD has none of the files mbrwrdos.exe or rtmbr.bin
used to create the PQSERVICE system.

I run the ACER Disk Formatter and it cannot find any drives on the laptop.

Weird! From what I've been able to glean my thought was that that the Formatter disk would facilitate creating the correct partitions?

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: No Longer Detecting Networks When Shifted To Windows 8.1 X64 Pro

I am having a Dell Inspiron 3521 laptop which came with a Ubuntu installation. For obvious reasons I shifted to Windows 8.1 x64 pro but immediately my machine no longer detected networks. In fact, I can only see the option to use wired connection now (after installing some drivers from Dell) in the system tray network notification.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: After A Fresh Reload Are Unable To Connect To Wireless Networks

Jun 19, 2012

I have 3 thinkpads that after a fresh reload are unable to connect to wireless networks. I have gone through and installed the different wireless drivers on the lenovo support website.I have gone through several steps of similar problems others have had but it hasn't made a difference.
I have installed:
-HotKeys & patch
-Power manager & driver

The realtek network -ethernet adapter and communications LAN driver.I have installed and removed each wireless adapter available
Thinkpad Edge 15
Type: 0319-46U
On a side note in the Device manager screen there is a "Network Controller" alert saying no driver installed for this device. I have determined it is some Realtek device but beyond that I am lost.

Dell Precision M4700 :: Running Windows 8 Cannot Connect To Secure Networks

Mar 1, 2013

I purchased a Dell Precision M4700 pre-installed with Windows 8 just before Christmas. Over all I am happy with it. My biggest regret was getting Windows 8.

The issue that is really starting to frustrate me is the inability to access the internet through certain secure WiFi access points. For example, I am sitting in a Marriott hotel using the Wifi network in their conference facility. Yesterday I could connect, today I cannot get to the login page. After several attempts to force a fresh connect by connecting to another network I have given up and am now tethered via my phone. A Windows 7 laptop and iPad connect without any problems.

At two companies that had a secure guest network I was unable to login at all.

As far as I can tell from the Dell web site the drivers for the Wifi card (Dell 1540) are all upto date (version
