Hello, I have a problem with connecting my SE K700i cell phone with Windows 7 notebook via bluetooth. I have paired them, file transfer is available, the problem is remote control (HID profile) - when trying to connect either desktop, presenter, kmplayer or any other, it always shows "Bluetooth connection failed. Retry?" I do not know what to do with that, with Vista it worked properly, the driver is the same, so what is the problem? Would be happy, if you could help me.

edit: the problem is in Windows - remote control does not work neither with another cell phone. It has Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba.

A:BT problem: Win7~cell phone-remote control doesn't work

Thx, I have already solved that - In BT settings an option of creating HID was hidden, it offered just dial up networking.

Help please and thanks, Mary

Here is my hijackthis text file.

A:Control/C Control/V control/alter/delete doesn't work

Mary, keyboard problems are not invariably software or malware-related. First things first - what OS are you talking about ? XP, Win 7, Win 8 or what? What type of keyboard is it? PS2, USB or wireless?

Disconnect it and reconnect it a few times, reboot and try again. Turn the keyboard upside down, placing one end on the edge of a thick book, and thump a few times on the back with your hand. Sweep the crud onto the carpet.....

Is it just a keyboard hardware problem, and if so which keys? tells you a lot of key combinations with ctrl and shift and alt. Tell us if any or none work?

Open a document and try typing a bit of text. Do all the characters work?

If it appears the keyboard is faulty, can you borrow another to test?

Quite often, keyboard problems are down to wireless problems: and can often be solved by re-installing the keyboard driver.

I am looking for a remote control that can operate my Pc (not remote desktop control) in the same way i operate my DVD player and TV.

The remote should be compatible with Win 7 and must be RF (as against IR)

Please let me know where i can buy one (online)

I am aware of the ATI Remote Wonder II but it does not fit my requirements

Any others??

A:is there a hardware RF PC remote control that will work on win 7

Have a look at the following, if you are specific on RF. Lenovo Multimedia Remote with Keyboard: Electronics - New (Read the user reviews)

Lenovo Outlet - Lenovo Multimedia Remote with keyboard Scratch & Dent - Discounted Laptops, Cheap Laptops, Refurbished Laptops, Discounted Desktops, Cheap Desktops, Refurbished Desktops (Read the user reviews @ Lenovo - United States also if you want New straight from the horse's mouth. )

If you can go with IR , then a good one EZ Commander - An innovative I/O solution to replace PC remote/mouse/keyboard/presenter It has a twin IR emitter for positive and wide-angle operation.(you have to search whether it is available with any other vendor. )

These are the ones I would recommend based on my personal experience. I have both and use the Lenovo most.

i have a medion md8833 pc about 3 years old. i did not use media centre until recently, but when i did the remote did work for me. after about a week i noticed it getting problematic, so i replaced the batteries and it was fine again for a few days. now it has stopped completely, and even new batteries do nothing for it. the light is not even coming on on it. the light did come on before but was problematic( it would only briefly light or light very dimly). does anyone have any ideas on what could be the problem. it has had very little use and has not been damaged in any obvious way

A:medion or24v vista remote control does not work

I'm sure the warranty is expired after three years, huh?

Perhaps it has reached the end of its life span. Check the connectors inside that touch the batteries. These connectors supply power to the unit. Some have springs and some are made of bendable metal. Make sure the metal contacts are making actual contact with the batteries. Sometimes pulling them outward is necessary.

Hope that helps!

Tried asking for help in the Networking forum, but nobody would reply, so I thought I'd try here before giving up altogether.

Twice I have been unable to make a connection to offer RA to a friend. Our basic system specs are as follows:

Both have DSL (different providers).

My end: Win7 Pro; Linksys WRT54GS (v6) router with UPnP enabled; Windows firewall set to allow RA.

His end: Vista HP; a Netgear WGR614 (v7) router with UPnP enabled; RA allowed in firewall.

We can easily establish a chat connection using Live Messenger (latest version). I suggested on both occasions that he request RA from me via Messenger. After entering his RA session password at my end, it is unable to make the connection. Only vague, general possible reasons for failure are offered by the RA software. Microsoft offers a connectivity diagnosis tool online, but it is not compatible with Win7, so I cannot run it for reliable results on my box.

Reading in "Windows 7 Inside Out" (published by Microsoft Press) about RA, it notes that with the advent of Vista, RA is supposed to easily traverse a pair of NAT routers to link a pair of computers. Well, apparently not in my case, which is why I'm asking for help here.

Maybe I'm just too bleary-eyed from frustration to see where I'm missing a critical setting either within Windows (Win7 & Vista) or in router setup. Can someone guide me through steps most likely to make this work?

I should note that I have subsequently tried TeamViewer, and did ... Read more

A:Remote Assistance over net doesn't work

Alright, so it occurred to me to "just try something, anything" in hopes of finding a clue. My desktop consistently fails when trying to initiate a RA connection via the Easy Connect method (either to Invite Someone, or Help Someone). It churns for bit, then returns with "Easy Connect is not available .....Can't connect to the global peer-to-peer network ."

This usually leads to a suggestion to run MS's Internet Connectivity Evaluation Tool, resulting with a "Not Supported" for the NAT Type test, and "Not Run" for the UPnP test. UPnP is definitely enabled in the router (actually, in all three of them I've tried).

So, for the hell of it, I tried a household laptop (Win7 too) via wireless to the same router (currently D-Link DIR628). Easy Connect on the lappy succeeds every time in linking to the "global peer-to-peer network". It either presents me with a password to convey to my "helper", or a RA terminal waiting for me to enter the "requestor's" password. Weird. Good, but weird.

If I run the Connectivity Tool from the laptop to the same router, it returns a "Supported" result for NAT Type, but still "Not Run" for UPnP. At least something seems to be working right.

Now the obvious question would be why my desktop cannot do the Easy Connect thing, but the laptop can, with same OS and behind the same router. There must be some software setting in 7 on the desktop at fault. I briefly en... Read more

I was RDP'ing from a Vista Business laptop to a Windows 2003 machine and the copy/paste feature does not work. I checked the RDP settings and under Advanced, the Clipboard is checked as a shared item. I RDP'd using an XP machine I have, and the copy/paste function works properly, leading me to believe it is something on this Vista machine.

Does anyone have any ideas why this would be happening? Or any ideas that I could try out because I am out of ideas. Thanks!

Hello everyone. I am having an issue getting my laptop (has Windows 7 Home Premium) to connect to my desktop work computer (has Windows 7 Professional) using RDC. I keep getting the following message: "The Local Security Authority cannot be contacted". I have searched the forum and Google and can't find a solution.

I have done the basic steps of configuring both of the computer's firewall (making an exception for RDC) and have checked the "Allow remote desktop connection" in the System Properties---->Remote tab. What else needs to be done?

A:Remote Desktop Connection Doesn't Work!!!! HELP!!!

The wording is a bit confusing and they seem to dance around the issue somewhat. Home Premium can't host an RDC connection but it can connect to either a Windows Ultimate or Windows Professional or Windows Enterprize hosting RDC. There is no host settings in Home Premium.

Which editions of Windows 7 include Remote Desktop Connection?

All editions of Windows 7 include Remote Desktop Connection. You can use Remote Desktop to initiate a connection from any edition of Windows 7.
You can connect to computers running Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, or Windows 7 Enterprise.
You can't use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to computers running Windows 7 Starter, Windows 7 Home Basic, or Windows 7 Home Premium.
This isn't something that they advertise but this Technet thread talks about it.

But you can do this using Team Viewer which is free.

Or LogMeIn works for this also.

When I (or a friend) try to connect remotly on my distant computer, it doesn't work.
No error message or something like that, even with the wrong password.
The window just blinks quickly as usual (as it's verifying the ip or something), but after that it just asks the IP of the remote computer again.

Both computers have Win XP Pro SP2.
On the client, the rules on firewall are right (the problem persists even if I desactivate it). I don't have any router.
The remote desktop connection is obviously allowed.
I can ping the client.

I tried to install the SP3 (still on the client) to see if it fixes that, but it didn't.
So, the remote connection still doesn't work.
I've also asked for help on the official microsoft newsgroups, but no solutions yet.

The correct way to uninstall ComboFix, all of its related folders, files and logs is to make sure it is still on the Desktop (<-Important!!!) and follow these instructions.When finished you will see a dialog box stating that "ComboFix has been uninstalled".After that, you can remove the ComboFix.exe program from your Desktop by right-clicking on it and choosing delete.If you encounter any problems using the switch from the Run dialog box or Search field, just rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe, then double-click on it to remove.If ComboFix is no longer on your Desktop, re-download it from here, save to the Desktop and follow the instructions above to properly uninstall it from your computer.Another option if the above is unsuccessful is to download DelFix by Xplode and save to your Desktop.Double-click on delfix.exe to run the tool.Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.Put a check mark next to these items:- Activate UAC- Remove disinfection tools- Create registry backup- Purge System Restore- Reset system settingsClick the "Run" button.When the tool has finished, it will create and open a log report (DelFix.txt)A copy of that report will be saved to the following location C:\DelFix.txt.-- Doing this will remove many specialized tools downloaded and used for malware removal. Any leftover logs, files, folders or tools remaining on your Desktop which were not removed can be deleted manually (right-click on it and choose delete).

Hello. I am just trying to get some opinions on the subject of wireless remotes for a mouse. I can't believe it but someone on sold me a wireless laser mouse without a remote (MS wireless mouse 6000). Incredible.I have found that you cannot just use any remote to any mouse, even if it is the identifcal model. In fact, I have this same identifcal MS wiresless 6000 mouse but doesn't work with it. Is there something you can do to get them working? There is a section on where you click more and I guess that's probably where it said no remote. It sure wasn't made obvious-like in bold or something. He definitely intended to trick me. You have to completely read everything with people like that around. Not to mention, it wasn't even cheap.

Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

Since upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit I can't turn the volume all the way down by using the volume control at the front of the notebook. Worked fine under Vista 32 bit.
The volume control still works but no matter how far I wind it to the left there is still sound coming from the speakers.

Any help appreciated.


A:Tecra P5 - Volume control doesn’t work properly

As far as I know volume control in the past was mechanical but now it works on different way and it is controlled by specific tool/utility.
To be honest Tecra P5 is not known to me but obviously it is Australian notebook model and according to Australian support page this notebook model is not supported for Windows 7.

That doesn?t mean you cannot use it but this means there is not software package designed for Windows 7 that can be installed so I think there is no much you can do about it.

I know it is annoying but for volume control you can use Windows option placed in task bar.

I recently noticed that my ctrl+a doesn't work. All the other ctrl combinations do! Ctrl+a doesnt allow me to "select all" while word processing or use this combination in games (first person shooters).

I have a logitech G15 and other keyboards and they all dont allow me to use ctrl+a. I have tried different versions of keyboard drivers for my G15 and without. I plugged the keyboard into another W7 and it works

Im assuming this is an issue with my OS now.

I know reinstalling windows is a option but want that to be the last resort as i only reformatted last month(i think it only started occurring when i reformatted)

EDIT: I have fixed my issue - it turns out my user account was corrupted, so I had to make a new one and copy all my documents folder over!

Windows 8 Remote Desktop Metro App will not let me copy and paste documents from the remote machine to my local machine. If I login using the desktop version it works just fine. My settings for the Metro App are correct.
I need two things:
1. A way to report bugs like this to Microsoft.
2. A possible solution to this very annoying problem.

What helped me was to kill the rdpclip program on the remote machine and start a new one and then copy-paste started working. So in short:
1. login to remote machine
2. In task manager find the rdpclip.exe running with your username
3. end process
4. file -> new task and type "rdpclip.exe"
Try copying and pasting now. It worked for me with Windows Server 2008 R2.Taavik

I am hoping someone on this forum can help me. I have a Thinkpad X60s, about a year old and I am running XP. Randomly my computer becomes sluggish so I try closing programs. I then figure out that one program is frozen (come to think of it, that program may always be IE) and I can't close it. I then try to warm boot with ALT CONTROL DELETE but it doesn't work. In fact, instead of getting the task manager, my screen saver comes up without any icons on my desktop. I have no cursor and can't do anything but unplug or take out battery and manually crash the computer. It then will start normally though it takes longer for the icons to appear.

I regularly download both IBM and Windows updates, I defrag regularly, do virus scans etc using Norton 360. I also have run Think Pad Productivity Center maintenance tasks.

Other than that and the slugglishness the computer runs ok.

Any help out there? I am frustrated and IBM has not been able to help, except by telling me to change the hard drive or send it to them.

A:Freeze,alt control delete doesn't work, lose all icons

Yes I think this is a hard drive issue too. Check to see how much space you have left on it. Go to My computer and right-click on the C drive icon. Click Properties... Also, you might consider checking the hard drive with a utility like Seatools from Seagate. IBM notebook drives are noted for their high failure rates...

If I try to use the Ctrl-Click action on web pages that allow you to select multiple items in a list box, a new ie session opens (to my home page) instead of allowing me to make multiple selections. This happens with ALL web pages that have multiple select boxes. It only happens on my desktop (XP with i.e 7), and not on other computers in my house with ie7.

I'm running Windows 8.1 64bits.
I have noticed since a couple of days ago that my Control+Tab shortcut does not work anymore. Not on text editors, not on web browsers, not on property pages, nowhere.
Control+Shift+Tab (reverse tab navigation) still works.
I have checked the results on an application called "Ethervane ActiveHotkeys". In there, it states that Control+Shift+Tab is not an active hotkey but that Control+Tab IS. I assume that some application decided to globally pick up Control+Tab for itself.
I have tried restarting (and testing as quickly as possible before all programs load), I have tried closing down all applications that the task manager will let me and still the shortcut does not work.
I tried going to msconfig and disabling all programs and non-Microsoft services with no luck, but if I start Windows 8 in Safe Mode then Control+Tab works again.
I tried running Hotkey Commander; it shows Control+Tab as being bound by some application, but does not show which application it is. If I delete/disable the hotkey binding from inside Hotkey Commander then it works again until I restart.
I'm stumped as to how to troubleshoot this further and any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either
- and probably other stuff that I haven't took note of yet...

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing changed.
- disk clean up, nothing changed
- registry clean, nothing changed

Another site is giving the above software free for the day. It would be handy for me to access my home pc at work, especially as its free, but how safe is it? The website states there is no spyware, or adware, and has a file transfer utility, which would be handy. Any thoughts?

With remotes for my TV, DVD, sound card and TV tuner, I keep the top of my monitor crammed. I was wondering if there is any such thing as a multi-remote that would function for all of these. I understand that there are ones for some of these, but not all...I think.

A:Remote Control

Any learning remote can replace those remotes. I strongly reccomend the Harmony remotes, the 659 in particular. I have 5 of them lol. I also have 3 880's which i would not reccomend.

Hi, does anybody knows does hp remote control works on other computers?

I would like to make it work on MSI GX623. Is it possible? and how?

A:hp remote control

That is the default HP Pavilion and HDX laptop remote. It works on every computer with ENE infrared receiver. If you are not sure about which infrared receiver your MSI computer has, you can try it by installing an ENE CIR driver and testing if remote works. You find the driver from HP's driver page for every model that comes with a remote.

I would like to install a Remote Control system so that I can cut out journeys to some of my club members to solve small problems on their computers and take control of their PC's from mine. As it is a comminity project we have no funds so it would need to be Open Source software. Don't want to go on a huge learning curve to achieve this. Am I asking the impossible or has anyone a suggestion please?
I did look at Tight VNC but that looks like taking a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

Perhaps a wireless Network setup might work

Get a wireless NIC and a programable remote that he can set to the Ntwork frequency.

Then make sure "Wake On LAN" is enabled in the bios!

I brought a swanky PC. Its swanky. I want to play a couple of PC games from the comfort of my living room. I also wanted to display video from my PC onto my TV screen. I do not want to lug my computer back and forth.

I have a laptop.

What is the best way to control my PC from my laptop? Is it to just install teamviewer or is there a better option?

Idea being I just remote connect to my computer from my laptop then can either connect that via HDMI to my tv or just play?

I hesitate to even respond when I see "best way." There are just so many variables and usually unknowns, and the answer may change tomorrow anyhow.

For the last month or so, every time I log off my account, the keyboard does not register at the Windows Log In screen. This makes it so I have to restart the computer and then it works fine.
There are three accounts on the computer, the casing has been half removed for the last 3 months, a DVD burner and driver recently installed 3 months ago and I am using a wireless off brand USB keyboard and mouse.
OS: Windows Xp Home Edition 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
As for the second part, the computer requires several restarts to boot up, sometimes up to twenty minutes of turning on and off to boot up. Only started doing this a week ago.

A:My Keyboard doesn't work, and the computer turns on but doesn't start.

It sounds like something is wrong with your Windows XP drivers. Something like that happened to me while building my computer, and when I boot up the keyboard did not work because my copy of windows XP was bad. You could try reinstalling windows XP, and It might work better, but I dont have a definite answer to your problem.

I am quite new here, but I've been wanting to get this problem solved for a long time, and I haven't seemed to get any answer.

So here's my problem:

I bought my Asus N53SV for around a year ago, and it worked great. But for some reason something changed.
When I try to open bluetooth, nothing happens. And when I want to connect anything using bluetooth, it doesn't work.

I tried to do this:
[windows] + r >bttray
But nothing opens up.

Please help!

Thank you,

Have a friend with a relatively new Lenovo laptop using Windows XP SP3. Overnight he can't access the Internet via browsers, email or AIM. His desktop connected to the same router is working fine.

He can access the router by IP address using either IE7 or FireFox 3.5. Anything that needs a DNS server doesn't work. This does say though that he has a working connection to the router.

He's run MalWareBytes and his own McAffee software looking for bad stuff but has found nothing.

Running "ipconfig /all" from the command prompt gives exactly the same results for the laptop as his working desktop. The DNS servers are there. He can ping the DNS servers using their IP addresses. He is being assigned a proper local network address so DHCP is working on the router.

Any thoughts on where to look next to discover why the Internet applications don't seem to be able to find the DNS servers?

A:Can't Access Websites, Email doesn't work and no AIM doesn

FWIW, my friend took his laptop to a PC shop. Their diagnosis was malware. I don't know the identity of the malware. Anyway, the shop saved his data then formatted and reloaded XP SP3.

Hi Everyone,

I just recently bought a new laptop, and decided to retire my old desktop PC to a different job. I wanted to hook it up to the TV and stereo and make a jukebox/DVD player out of it. Having said that, these are the system specs:
Windows XP Home
Pentium 4 2.40GHz
256 MB RAM
120 GB and 16 GB Hard Disks
USB 2.0 (4 ports)
NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200
Not the greatest system ever, I know, but it plays music at least (which is mainly what I wanted to use it for).

What I was really looking for is a remote control for this setup. I Googled around a bit and came up with a couple of options, namely the StreamZap PC Remote and a couple of others, including some that are for the Media Center PCs (like the one from Microsoft).

My questions are:

Has anyone used anything like this before?
How customizable are these devices?
Do any support Linux?


A:PC Remote Control - Any Suggestions?

Hello mattach, I am actually in the research process of finding a good pc remote also. I am building a home theatre PC running MCE 2005 and connecting it to a 50in plasma via DVI. The case I am using has a built in IR receiver on the front so I dont need the external IR receiver, but I think I am going to go with the Microsoft MCE one because thats what I will use most. I have read a few reviews and talked with others that have it and they say they like it a lot. Although Im not sure how well it would work if you dont have MCE2005. The specs on your option say it works well with winamp and musicmatch so you are good with tunes, also it says works with multimedia apps so your DVD program should be supported. My HTPC has a sound card with fibre optic option so thats how I will be hooking up my audio to my receiver, but a cheaper and quality option you might think about is just running a cable out from your headphone jack that converts to RCA's. You can find these at Radioshack for fairly cheap. Welp thats my ramblings. Good Luck. Let me know how it goes we might run into the same snags along the way. ---Trevor

I don't think that what I have in mind exists, but I will ask regardless. I know that there are remote controls available, but none that I know of that will permit one to navigate through the media library at a distance from the monitor, because the links and thumbnails are too small to be seen at a distance, even back when my eyesight was sharp (I remember those days).

What I was imagining was a remote with a video screen of it's own, kind of like a cellphone has, that could display my library using Movie Collector, so that I could lie in bed, and browse the videos, without having to go to the monitor and keyboard. Is there such a lazy man's device around somewhere?
