It may be your anti-virus/firewall. Try disabling SSL monitoring in your AV/FW and then using a browser. If the browser connects then you need to open a support ticket with your anti-virus/firewall provider so they can help you adjust your settings.

Many laptops switches between Intel integrated graphics and GPU to reduce power consumption for windowed softwares and switch to dedicated GPU when a software was launched through NVIDIA game launcher app. But if it malfunctions, switching between desktop and game can reset that function. That is why game starts performing better after opening after launching task manager.

User 22f2017-11-13
Whenever you connect a new device to your laptop, Windows usually installs drivers automatically most of the time but not always.1) Check if the drivers are installled - if drivers are not installled then you have to install them either from the manufacturers website or the CD/DVD or any software that came with your device 2) Check the ip address does it say 169.254.X.X or does it say something else? your ip address should normally show 192.168.x.x in most cases or any other ip if you manually configured. So check that. 3) Try these commands in command prompt - ipconfig /flushdns , ipconfig /release , ipconfig /renew . To go to command prompt , click on start - & then type cmd and then click on that. followed by the commands in previous line. 4) Go to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections and then try to disable your laptop adapter and try and see if your external antenna is able to pick up your WIFI . If you see the you should be able to connect it. These are some of the troubleshooting steps you can try. 5) You can try rebooting your PC. Hope this helps.

Hi, my laptop has 16gb ddr4 ram and my graphics card is a nvidia geforce gtx 980m with 8gb of vram... I had updated my nvidia game ready driver to 388.12 and I am getting very low fps (1-10 fps) on all the games... But when I run the task manager (pressing ctrl+alt+del)... My games run fine(60+fps)... Why does this happen? Any info about this will be highly appreciated... Thanks in advance.

Wi-Fi and Internet are separate from each other. You can have a good wired or wireless connection and still lose access to the Internet. That is not your laptop’s fault. Try rebooting the cable modem. If that doesn’t fix it, check with your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and ask if there are service outages. Otherwise... you did pay your ISP bill on time, yes?

If you do a clean install on an empty disk, a recovery partition will be automagically created although its location is questionable. Windows uses this for its reset feature.

The sort answer is yes. After all it is MS Windows so it will fail catastrophically at some point. The longest I've ever been able to keep Windows running stably was about 2 1/2 years before needing to do a recovery.

To create a system restore for windows 10 you need to use something like TrueImage, Ghost, etc to create an image.

Do I need to worry about this ever?
Um
User m132017-10-17
That you wont be able to do from the Windows install media. Your D: partition is (most likely) the factory (HP, DELL, etc.) installed recovery partition. Depending on the included Brand programs, you may be able to create a set of system restore disks so you can revert back to windows 7 if 10 doesn't work out for you.

When a piece of software requires a (relatively) small code change, the update is called a patch. Patch management is the process of testing out and applying the patch to your version of the software. An example of this is when Microsoft releases security updates for Windows. These patches are then available for IT departments to test out -- making sure they don't break the software before applying the patch.

No. It is getting into startup repair from the recovery partition which is likely on the same hard drive. Without knowing a lot more details, there are several things that may have gone wrong. The contents of your Windows partition have been deleted, the partition reformatted, or the partition was deleted. All 3 have the same result on UEFI systems: the bootloader cannot find the files necessary to start Windows. From the command prompt, start diskpart. Select your hard drive (disk 0 for most systems) with: select disk 0 Then list all partitions: list partition On an EFI/GPT system, you should see 4 partitions if it is using the default Microsoft layout. There will be an NTFS-formatted recovery partition, an unformatted reserved partition, a FAT32-formatted system partition, and your NTFS-formatted primary partition.

I just fixed (as in less than 2 minutes ago) a computer that was doing the same thing. My first guess was a thermal shutdown until I got my hands on the machine. Turns out the fans were working properly and CPU temps remained very low. (I could keep my fingers on the heatsink and it was only slightly over body temp.) Turns out it was an intermittent problem with the PSU. Replaced the power supply and it has now crossed the 10 minute mark without power loss. According to the owner, it hasn't lasted more than half an hour in the last 2 days, so I'll keep it going for a few hours before returning it (updating outdated software in the meantime).

My Problem: I have recently purchase a new desktop pc. But when I start the PC it starts re-start after interval. I guessed it is due to the backdated antivirus given free by my PC seller. Then I installed ESET antivirus 30 days trial from online. But still the problem remains. Then I anticipated that may be it is due to my wifi router settings. Anticipating that I have reset my wifi settings. After that the problem almost gone except the PC restarts once after few minutes I start the PC and then it wont restart anymore till I shut down the system. But everytime I start the PC it restarts ONCE till I shut down the PC! why is this happening...?? Can anybody help me pls in this regard??

But I have only one problem now that is only one USB port is usable.I got two normal USB port and one USB 3.0 port. Only one USB port is usable that is that one normal USB port. Please someone help.If I solved this,I can peacefully use Windows 7.

You can't download the driver to your phone that connects your file via micro USB to USB type A Cable and then you plug in your Wi-Fi card and the next thing you know, you have working Wi-Fi!

Ua
User a0z2017-08-31
You need to get the driver using a second computer wether it be an android phone or another laptop or desktop computer
Ua
User a0z2017-08-31
Unless you download the proper driver from the manufacturer, you cannot use it any Wi-Fi adapter or anything unless it has the proper driver installed on the computer
U1
User 1ql2017-08-31
No,I do not have one.So,you are saying that anyone who use Windows 7 cannot use WI-FI adapter?
Ua
User a0z2017-08-31
Reason is because the windows eight has more drivers in Windows 7, each newer windows Edison has more drivers that were installed by default when doing the first booth of windows. Do you have an ethernet connection? If you connecte reason is because the windows eight has more drivers in windows seven, each newer windows Edison has more drivers that were installed by default when doing the first booth of windows. Do you have an ethernet connection? If you have an ethernet connection, you can connect to the Internet wired and download a driver so you can get your Wi-Fi modem working
U1
User 1ql2017-08-31
Actually previously I used Windows 8 in the same hard disk and it can detect when it is connected to both USB ports.I do not know why Windows 7 won't detect it and now I am feeling regretful
Ua
User a0z2017-08-31
Also, why not try to USB 2.0 port if you have one? Did it work with USB 3.0 before you reinstall the windows?
U1
User 1ql2017-08-31
But I doubt that does Windows 7 will not detect USB 3.0 port?
Ua
User a0z2017-08-31
You need to go to the website and download the driver onto a thumb drive on a working phone or computer plug it in and install the driver
U1
User 1ql2017-08-31
Help! So,I recently installed Windows 7 and whenever I tried to connect my WI-FI adapter via USB 3.0 port,it did not detect it!I tried via the normal USB port and it says 'Updating driver' and then said 'Failed to update driver' because there is no Internet source to download the driver! By the way,my WI-FI adapter is TP-LINK 725n and I tried their setup to install the driver but whenever the setup says 'Searching card',it says 'There is no card detected' Yeah so that is it.I hope anyone will help me.

It's been a while since I have used it, but if it will allow you to push the existing partition forward so the unused space follows it, it should work.
U1
User 1ql2017-08-31
How about Gparted?
U8
User 8ku2017-08-31
You need a partition management tool that can move the existing partition forward, then extend it. I put my trust in the Paragon Software tools, though there are many others that can do the job.
U1
User 1ql2017-08-31
meaning?
U8
User 8ku2017-08-31
This can only be done with Disk Management if the unallocated space FOLLOWS the partition you want to extend.
U1
User 17b2017-08-31
Try another partition manager program like Minitool Partition Wizard https://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html

With a CD-R you have to "finalize" the disc before it can be usable in other devices (another PC, CD player, etc...) only CD-RW discs can be rewritten. Finalizing a disc will make the blank space unusable.

User zy62017-08-30
Sourav, I see that you asked this question elsewhere. And yes, 3 metres of USB cable should be the maximum. A 5m extension is too much, and coupled with the original cable, that's what... 7 or 8 metres? Where are you located? As in, where in the building?
Uz
User zy62017-08-30
What is your computer's USB technology? 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, or 3.0? A five meters-long cable should be within norm. I'm away from a set of notes that could answer your question. I'll look them up tomorrow.
Uz
User zy62017-08-30
Good evening, everyone: A customer asked me how can he record only a limited amount of data into a CD-R, and ensure that no other data can be recorded in the remainder of the disc. Is this possible? Can this be accomplished by writing white noise on the space that would have remained blank otherwise? I searched the subject in the local knowledge base and the web, but found nothing applicable.

From what has been disclosed so far, it just seems as though they want to set up a peer network with nothing to share between the devices. Makes no sense to do it, but that is what has been described.
Uv
User vm42017-08-28
They are also using same person's devices as server and clients. Does that also mean business owner is his own customer? It sounded like they will make a small setup and understand how the server-client interact before building the actual server.

"Nothing to share but to help a friend who opened a life insurance business and who wants me to help setup network in wireless way" This is for a life insurance business according to that post. Not a place to experiment.

You can use Sandra Lite to see if it has problems detecting the hardware. Their commercial Tech Support version is directly bootable and is better at finding hardware problems. You could also use a Linux LiveCD to boot the system and scan the logs looking for errors indicating hardware problems. Since the USB ports and the network adapter are on separate PCIe busses, my initial impression is a controller problem and a high likelihood that there are other system devices that are not functioning.
