Well, for some reason, the other day when I clicked on the IE Icon on the desktop, the window would open to full size and then immediately close out.I could not keep the window open.
My apple Safari browser will work normally however. I thought malware or virus, but It continued to do this even after running spyware doctor, McAfee, ad-awatch and windows defender.
Finally I was able to run IE browser only if I disabled all browser add-ons . Then I re-enabled them one at a time, and the culprit seems to be McAfee Site Advisor Toolbar. If I leave this disabled, it seems to work ok but it still seems a little slow. Any reason why this happens? Also wondering if I should disable some of the other add-ons or are they there as a necessity .........
I am having some trouble with my Internet explorer. At times when I am surfing, hundreds of new IE windows open up randomly and they keep on opening up till I kill the process in the Task Manager. I did a full system scan using Mc Afee but it says the system is clean.
I have an older Vostro 1500, which has generally been pretty reliable but because of it's age probably qualifies for hospice care.
I can open my browsers (Firefox or Explorer) but no websites will then open as usual. I've run virus scans, malware scans, and even de-fragged. Does this sound terminal? Is there anything else I can do?
I bought my Inspiron 5520 in the States in July, 2012. The problem that I have now, which is quite annoying really is that when I type in a browser, it becomes deactivated and I have to activate it again in order to continue typing. It happens very often and it's almost impossible to have typed a long message or a document without a browser being deactivated and me having to activate it again and again. Same happens with Word.
Anyone else dislike the new column browser? In previous iTunes, the bar was accross the top; access to Genres, Artists, Albums.....
Now, down the side (taking more space away from my collection views), and I have to go to a menu to select between the different options its lists.....
Honestly Apple, why? Its crappy, out of place and makes me scroll accross because before I actually had enough room to get all the info I needed on my screen (track, artist, album, track number).... now.... not so much!
I have Dell Vostro 1400 and I am facing a very wierd issue. My laptop types automatically in the search or in a browser if it is open and in any application that it can type. It mostly types "asdf;lkj" like this. Again when I use a media player it automatically increase or decreases the volume to the max. and sometimes restart the player. It again sometimes automatically locks my computer.
1. I have already formated my laptop many times and also updated the BIOS as I thought it as a VIRUS problem. Also, I have tried different antivirus software but all in vain.
2. I have also dislodged my laptop keyboard and using an external keyboard; but this is also not working.
3. Prior to all these I have called DELL Service for support. But they also could not offer me a satisfactory answer.
The caps lock key flash en my browser comes up with automatic multiples key press by itself and goes off. My laptop always go off soon as the caps lock key flash a light and mostly when am online......
I own a Dell studio 1555. When I first encountered the auto shut down problem, I ran the diagnostics and found my HDD is crashed. So I replaced with a new 1TB WD. My RAM is of 3GB. After couple of days, this problem started again. Majorly, I see this problem when I am trying to use internet in some browser.
One of the service center person told that it could be a CPU fan problem. He replaced it, but still the problem persists. Warranty period is expired for my laptop.
I just got a Sony VPCF115FM. I was wondering if there is a setting for the browser/webpage where it opens up and the size is what I prefer. Meaning that I don't have to keep using "Ctrl +" to enlarge the page.
My HP15-g019wm notebook product number F9H60UA#ABA was hanging on the black welcome screen after logging in for about two minutes before opening to the desktop. My mozilla firefox is slow to open and is not connecting to any websites other than the homepage. It upgraded to the newest version when I first tried to open it and then it slowly opened up. Google chrome opens up quickly but then freezes when I try to go to another website. My computer runs windows 8.1 64 bit system. What could be causing the hangup and internet issues on my laptop? I was able to log in and browse the internet just fine last night, and these problems just started happening this afternoon.
I have an Hp Pavilion 15 notebook pc. The problem Im having is that I will be connected to the internet browser and it will work for about 5 minutes and then I wont connect after that. I know its not the connection because everything else on this network works and even the email button on my laptop will still sync all my emails. Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser. (using firefox) and also tried using internet explorer. What are some other steps that I can go through.
I've had this issue since new (6+ months) which has been driving me crazy. It's very intermittent, I generally shutdown every day, and it might work for 2-3 weeks fine. Other times I'll boot up, have no sound in browsers and have to reboot multiple times before it works. After booted, it either completely works or it doesn't.
So when the problem happens system sounds and other applications play fine, but no sound in Explorer, Chrome, etc. Checked all the usual things, updated drivers, reinstalled Flash, checked volume settings, etc.
Searching around many other people faced a similar issue which was fixed by a registery change, I checked this also but my registry was correct. For example: [URL] ....
Lately my laptop would freeze and I could see faint white lines only at the top of my screen. (lines do not go all the way down) This has happened twice in a day. Ctrl Alt Del doesn't work so I have to power down the system and it runs normal after that.
I'm really afraid its the dreaded vertical lines issues. I had my mobo + GPU replaced a year ago, still under CC warranty but its such a pain.
I am wondering if anyone know whether dell fixed the video card and heating issues (like many in this forum mentioned) yet?
I am very interested in this machine but I don't want to risk buying something that would burn out later. I am also interested in the new studio XPS 13 as well though I would love to know how it handles heat and the video card (i hate burned-out video cards..
i have been having problems with my xps m1330 ive had it for 3 years now and its been decent to me... 3 months ago when my warranty was up i sent it in to get the gpu and mother board replaced because of the warranty. Just recently it started acting up bad...
Would freeze left and right start running check disk when i tried to restart it...so i decided to reformat it seeing some scan i ran in dos was saying i was missing a system file. So i cleared the c drive and installed vista fresh... re-put my 60gb of music over and everything seemed fine for 2 days... not today it froze up on me ... i tried to restart and got a blue screen that flashed to fast to read and i tried to restart again and got a 2000-0141 error and alot of beeping and crap... so i restarted it and it was gone...
I've had my M1330 for about 1 1/2 yrs now. The first issue is that at one point 3 months ago,
I was being randomly electrocuted by my laptop when I placed my hand on the open space below the keyboard. About a few days after the random electrocution started, the battery died, and won't recharge at all.
Lastly, there is a constant whistling sound that was coming from the laptop ever since I bought it.
I'm out of warranty. Am I able to buy a new warranty for my laptop at this time or is it too late for me? And if it is too late, should I attempt to make repairs through Dell, or am I better off selling the laptop,
and then use the cash towards a lower pc, like those mini/EPC's that these companies are selling now?
