Hello fellow techies,
I have a situation with my Compaq Evo N600c battery or something in that directions, so I need possible solutions. My laptop needs to be plugged in at all times, which makes it frustrating because its a portable laptop. If it becomes unplugged the laptop will turn off within 10 seconds flat. I fear that this will, if it hasnt already done so, mess up my electric circuits among other components. Can any of you suggest or recommend options I can use to diagnose the situation. I would like to find out what the problem is, whether I should buy a new battery or some component or prong that I need to replace? Thanks for the feed back!

A:Battery will not charge or hold charge?!?!

Yup, sounds like a battery problem.

First, make sure the battery has a charge. Most laptop batteries have a button on them somewhere you can push that will give you the power level. Alternativly, there should be a utility in windows or the BIOS that will allow you to check the power level.

If the battery has no charge and isn't charging, then replace it with a known good one and see if it will charge up when the laptop is plugged in.

If the good battery won't charge up, then there is a problem with your motherboard.

If the battery has charge but won't power the system, then there is a problem with your motherboard too.

If this is the case, then the best you can do is contact the laptop manufacturer and get them to replace the motherboard.

My laptop won't hold a charge. If you wiggle the cord around a bit it might, but then it stops charging after a minute or so. Last night I managed to charge it completely.

I'm not sure what's wrong with it. I know it can't be the battery since the battery lasts a pretty long time when it IS charged, but it just doesn't charge good. I'm not sure what's wrong with it.

I'm not sure if it could be the AC power adapter not connecting with the laptop or the thing in the laptop itself..

I plug it in, charge to 100%, unplug it. Battery reads 100% charged. About 15-20 mins later, laptop shuts down suddenly with a dead battery. When I plug it back in and get it restarted, it show the battery charging again, from 0%. I am running Windows 10, but this issue started a few weeks before doing the update. Thanks for the help!

The battery for my hp envy ts 15 notebook won't hold a charge. It works fine when connected to the charger but when taken off, will shut down. I've ran a battery test through the HP support assistant and ran a components test. Each one states the battery is ok. But whenever I take it off the charger the battery, which states its at a decent charge, the laptop will instantly die. I also checked the battery number and it is not apart of the recall.

Can you take a screenshot of the battery test? Particularly how many cycles it has registered? And how old is the laptop and battery?

I have searched across this site and other forums and have yet to find a solid answer to this question even though numerous users are having the same issue. This keyboard has worked fine for me for about two years, but now all of a sudden it will not hold a charge.  Even after turning the keyboard off, plugging into the tablet for 24 hours, and then turning back on, the keyboard only works for about five minutes.   I can only assume that this is an issue with the power going from the tablet to the keyboard, but when trying to update any drivers related to batteries or the keyboard it says I already have the latest driver.  Please help because I'm essentially stuck with only using a tablet for a computer as of right now.

Hello.

I have recently got a Portege 3440OCT, running XP, seems a good little set up, exept that it doesn't seem to hold its charge very long (10 Mins). Even when it has been switched off and been on charge for about 3 hours.

Can anyone help to overcome this problem? Any help would be appreciated

A:Portege 3440OCT - Battery charge hold only for 10 Min

Hey buddy,

Well, this notebook is really old so I?m not wondering about this issue. A battery pack can be recharged about 500 and when it runs out shortly after fully recharging the battery, the battery may needs to be replaced. You may have to purchase a new battery pack.

You can get a new battery form an authorized service provider. They can sell you all Toshiba spare parts and with new battery your notebook should work on battery for a longer time as yet. ;)

I bought this laptop in November 2015 and for the last 3/4 months have been experiencing the same couple of issues.1 - The trackpad is intermetent. This randomly stopped working while playing Football Manager, so I thought this was due to the App. This then started happening in general use meaning I have to use the mouse provided.2- The battery life drains consistently, even when switched off. I'm conscious about over charging so have never done so but still face this issue.Very dissappointed.

Hi,
I have notebook 386SX since 1993. I have completed a lot of enhancements with time. The last thing I hope to do with is the inscrease of the memory. This notebook is 5 Mb limited. I guess this goal is somewhat difficult to reach.
What I have done : I took 4 identical 2 Mb memory modules and plug them into my notebook. They worked but the system recognized only the first Mb on each module.
What I assume to do : a software modification of the Bios to increase the memory limitation (there is no bios update available for this hold system).

Is it the best or the only way to do this?

This Award Modular Bios (v 3.15) is a 32 pin chip ROM (do not know if it is EEPROM) on a PLCC socket.
I am ready to buy a Bios programmer equipment (eBay) and empty flashable EEPROMs to test the modified Bios.

I think I have a lot of knowledge to learn. I do not have experience in Bios programming. Could someone give me some advises to start this project.

(OS : MS-DOS 6 and Windows 95).

Thank you.
 

A:More RAM on (very) hold notebook

Yes its time to retire the notebook to your Hall of Fame computer shelf. Nothing you could change or enhance is going to make much difference (doubling the RAM won't help you run any other programmes on it that weren't already designed for it) and there are two chances of successfully modifying the BIOS...super slim and none.
So if the computer actually does something useful right now, I'd be happy with that, or if you don't mind probably making it into a paperweight, go ahead and experiment

I attempted to contact HP is regard to the issue that I am experiencing, but cannot as my warranty expired on 6/22/16.  I'm hoping someone e here can provide insight.  When I turned my Stream on this afternoon, it wouldn't boot.  Odd, since it was fully charged last night, so I went ahead and plugged it in.  Upon doing so, I encountered a black screen stating my internal battery was nearly at capacity.  What precisely does that mean?  I am able to use the notebook as long as I keep it plugged in.  Also, while plugged in I receive a message stating that it's connected to a power source and the battery is not charging.  The moment I unplug it, it shuts down. I'm more than upset in regard to this new and unwanted development.  The notebook is only 15 months old.  Is there any way to salvage it or am I looking at buying a new one?  I've always used HP desktops,laptops, and notebooks; now I will never purchase one again. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Hello, I am in need of a bit of help. I have a old Gateway 7510GX notebook that wont charge, and will only run if plugged in to the wall. I am 99% sure that the charging circuit has gone bad, because the charge indicator icon stays at 66 percent for ever.

Do you think I should open up the laptop and check the board for burnt components, or what?
Also, External battery chargers for laptops go for big $$$. So would it be possible to remove the cells and hook them to a external charger. (I have a slow charger made for RC Li-Ion batteries that I think would be perfect).

Thanks,

I have purchased HP 15-AF114AU Notebook about 2 months ago. For the past one week, the battery doesn't charge beyond 90%. Once the bettery reaches 90%, the indicator shows "plugged in, not charging".Initially, it used to charge upto 95%, then it dropped to 94% and now 90% in a span of just one week. I have tried recalibrating the battery by draining it completely and charging it again, run tests using HP Support Assistant and the component test from BIOS, all show the battery to be OK. But still the battery doesn't charge beyond 90%, no matter what I do. Please help.

I got this Toshiba Satellite 32PFL3312/10 - But now there is some problems

The battery indicator says that the the charger is plugged in, and IS charging. but it doesnt charge the battery.. no charge is taking place :-/ Its says there is "0" battery left. I have triede everything.. i toke the battery out, made sure there wasnt any dust etc.. i have tried holdning the power key down in 30 sec and a lot more. everytime i unplug the charger the system instantly swiched off.. I have tried to change the power plan from balanced to saver.

Then i tried to delete the Microsoft ACPI Compliant control method battery from the decive manager, and made it search for it again. This step made the battery start to charge for about 10-15 sec, and then it stopped again.

Now im kind of frustrated... So i thought that maybe it was an windows update problem, so i tried to update - but i got several updates "hanging" but now it wont update.. ! Comes with update errors. tried microsoft fix it, it didnt help.

Then i thought, okay... then i will try to restore to the factory condition, But nothing happens, i have tried all the guides from the Toshiba forums, pressing "0" - I did nothing... Then i tried pressing "F8" it didnt nothing... Then i tried the "F12" still nothing.

Im going nuts now... Hope someone in here can help me....

My notebook is not charging. I don't know if it's the charger that's not working or could it be the charging port on the notebook itself. I have been charging it for the past few days and it's doing pretty well until I plugged it on a socket and didn't charge anymore. Tried checking the charger, it smelled a little burnt on the blue end with the pin and also on the charging port. When I plugged it, there was no popping sound whatsoever that could lead to me assuming it had a short circuit. Checked the socket, it was compatible with the charger. What am I to do?

Hi, Recently the main fan on my notebook failed. Thus, I found a new cooling assembly part on ebay, ordered it, and installed it. The installation process required the complete disassembly of the notebook. I followed a video guide for this. I am well aware that disassembly voids any kind of warranty, this machine was already well out of warranty. After re-assembling the notebook, it doesn't boot or show any signs of life. I have tried all combinations of powering on with and without battery, with and without AC adapter, and with and without the hard drive. The computer's charging light doesn't light up when the adapter is plugged in, but right after I insert the plug to the computer, I hear a very faint clicking once or twice where it plugs in. I am curious if possibly during the disassembly/reassembly process I broke a power component to the computer or possibly shorted out something on the motherboard. I didn't use an antistatic wristband during the process however in hindsight I definitely should have. I'm curious as to which part could possibly need replacing according to the symptoms described above. I double checked that all plugs were properly inserted as well. Hopefully someone can point me towards whether the problem is with the DC-in power component within the computer or perhaps the entire motherboard. If it's just the little DC component, could that be easily replaced? Thanks,Matt

Hi EightForum,

I really hope you can answer this simply request.

Nowadays is pretty common to have a new Ultrabook, laptop or notebook for general purposes. A very important feature is to have a healthy battery. We all know that Lithium-batts do a terrific job and are more resistant than never, but after many years of experience, I've learnt that having a software like "Eco charge, Battery care, Smart charge...etc " is a clever and vital feature already present in major brands BUT HP, believe or not. I've just received a new Ultrabook Spectra x360 with windows 8.1, and so far I cannot find any special battery function for this request, even worst nobody can answer in their forum either; I really can't understand this flaw in HP. So, I'd like to know is there any reliable battery software that can allow me to keep the battery charge to 80% and no more, even connected to AC power.

I've seen several that keep info about battery and how to optimize but none with the simple function that I need.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Bill_Ving Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wireless networking poor performance and wanted to help. My immediate guess is that you might have mixed-mode networking going on.  This happens when you have two different PCs networking in two different modes -- one using "G", the other using "N".  The wireless router (or access point) can optimize performance for either mode, but not for both.  So, the "G" mode drags down the performance of the "N" mode PC, but even worse, with the router set for mixed modes, it performs more slowly than with either PC connected by itself.Here are some other troubleshooting steps you can try: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8) | HP® Customer SupportGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================

It depends on whether the differing types of RAM will work together try it and see, maybe adding one stick at a time so you know which one to remove if it does not work
Consult the MB manual to see where and how to place the RAM

My computer started acting sluggish about a week ago and locking up occasionally. I am not that computer savy but I have noticed several odds things. There are several files in my temporary internet file that I can not delete, several gifs and several jscript files. I have tried in safe mode and tried flushing the dns with the ipconfig /flushdns command in run. Also, I have noticed that in McAfee in my firewall setting that in the Attack Detection part that all the detects are set to NO, I can't imagine that they were all set to NO. Also, my computer has tons of services running when I checked in msconfig and when I click on the Selective Startup and came back only several services were running, which may be normal but the ones that were running seemed to be ones if someone had your computer hijacked. The two that stood out to me was DCOM Server Process Launcher and the Remote Procedure Call.... maybe that is what it should of been, just am not sure. Is there a way for me to get my computer secure and not have this feeling that someone is remotely looking at all my data on my computer? Any help or thoughts would be very much appreciated.

Hello

On my PC right now I am running Windows 8.1, all genuine.

But PC is gone very slow and I would like to format my PC. The problem is I do not have a Windows 8.1 ISO! I got to Windows 8 then 8.1 via Windows 7 upgrades.

How do I get hold of a Windows 8.1 iso so that I can format my PC? I do not fancy installing Windows 7, then upgrading to 8 and 8.1 all over again

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I'm assuming that you're using the Windows XP Firewall and not a third party firewall.

Go to Start > Run, type in services.msc, make sure the following services are set to Automatic and running:

Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
Network Connections
Windows Management Instrumentation
Event Log
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Security Center
For Error Reporting:

Go to Start > Run, type in sysdm.cpl > Advanced tab > Error Reporting, click "Disable error reporting" and check "But notify me when critical errors occur".

Go to Start > Run, type in services.msc

Set Error Reporting Service to disabled.

If I see my desktop, I have about 15 to 30 seconds before I lose control and can't do anything.  My mouse won't activate anything on the desktop. Clicking and double-clicking don't work.
 
Norton antivirus has disappeared from the desktop.  Most of my files and folders are not visible if I look on the hard drive after clicking "My Computer".
 
I bought a new hard drive and installed it and loaded Windows XP Home Edition to it.  I've been trying various forms of rescue operations from this new drive, which is protected by Norton 360.
 
I first noticed a problem after trying to install H&R Block's Tax software on my computer, so my wife could do our taxes.  The program wouldn't install properly so we called their customer service and spent maybe more than an hour trying different fixes.  At one point, the customer service rep told me to turn off my firewall.  Reluctantly, I did and it was down for maybe 10 minutes.  I believe something crept in at that point, because since then I haven't been able to do anything when i boot from that drive.

Hello,
I will be helping you with your problems. Please be patient while I assist you.
Some points for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of us
Please do NOT run, install or uninstall any programs,  unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.

Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.

Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.

Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.

I have two SD cards and each is supposed to hold 2gb. But they actually only hold a little over 1 gig. I need them to hold at least close to 2gb is there anything I can do to format it or something?

I've previously used them for my cannon camera and now I want to use one of them for a digital frame. Actually I am using it but it's only got half the pictures I want on it. I noticed this problem when trying to copy pictures from my PC to the card, it copies some and then errors out. When I then put that card in my camera the camera says memory card full.
 

A:2gb SD card won't hold 2GB

There is always a small reduction in actual space due to file management stuff, but half the advertised memory isn't right.
What brand are they?

Some of them come with added content that might need to be removed.
Are you sure there aren't any protected images on the cards?

If everything important is saved on a drive, go ahead and format them to see if they offer more space.
If that doesn't fix it, check the manufacturer's website for more info.
Before using a card in a camera you should format it in the camera to setup the file system correctly, and it sometimes takes TWO formats to do it right, don't ask me why.

A:Why Don't Settings Hold?

Have you checked the settings in 'Computer management' to see that the firewall is set to Startup type 'Automatic' ?
 
There are two ways to get there :  If you have a 'My computer' or 'System' icon on your desktop, right click on it and select 'Computer Management' from the drop down menu. Or, click 'Start / Settings / Control panel / Administrator tools' and from here select 'Computer management'.
 
Expand the bottom item in the box that opens 'Services and Applications' and select 'Services'. This provides a list of all the services on your computer and their status and startup type. It is best to maximise this box, otherwise you are going to do a lot of scrolling ! Since services are listed in alphabetical order, scroll down to 'Windows Firewall' and the startup type should be 'Automatic'. If it isn't, RIGHT click on the Windows firewall entry and under the tab 'General' , in the middle of the box, you will see 'Startup type'. If it isn't set to automatic, click on the down pointing arrow and select automatic.
 
This should solve your firewall problem. And a similar process should sort the error reporting - set that to either 'Manual' or 'Disabled'.

Put the card in your PC's Reader and then in My computer right click on the drive letter and choose Format...Your Camera will also have a Format option.

Hopefully that helps.

Could I also suggest that you make a batch of resized photo's specifically for your Frame, the resolution one those screens average 640 x 480 800x600, 800 x 480, (my 10 mp camera images are 3648 x 2736)...you can get a lot more pictures on the card this way...you won't notice the difference in quality.

I use this program: http://www.fotosizer.com/Download.aspx You just drag and drop the pictures, chose a size and folder to copy to and click start.

Hey! First off, thanks for taking the time to read this! When I got this laptop (almost 2 years ago), if somebody called while i was online, a box would pop up, and it would display who was calling. Earlier this year, I ran the recovery disk. Now when someone calls, the box pops up for a split second and it goes behind all of the other windows. It used to do a thing where it would stay on top of the windows until I had clicked "ignore" or "answer." Since it goes behind the other windows now, I often miss it if people call. Does anybody know how to set the program to always be on top when someone calls? When I hold my mouse over the icon, it says V.92 Modem On Hold App. The right-click menu says V.92 Modem On Hold Settings, Call History, Start Automatically (check by it), Place Voicecall, Help, About MOH, and Exit MOH. The box for V.92 Modem On Hold Settings has the following: Enable Call Waiting (check by it), Disconnect call. Switch to Voice, Enable modem on hold (dot filled in), Enable Caller ID (check by it), and Warn before timeout (also checked). There is also a box to the right of Warn before timeout that has 10 sec in it. About MoH says LtMoH Version 1.73B Copyright 2003 Agere Systems.

I am trying to figure out how to get my modem to use modem on hold or even just disconnect when a call comes through while I am online. My ISP does support v92 and I have call waiting, however calls cannot come through when I am on the net. I am running Windows 98SE and using a Smart Modular Tech. V.90/V.92 56K Internal PCI Modem, Model 90109, with a Lucent 1648T00 (Mars-3) chipset. This modem was given to me by a friend so I do not have the drivers that came with it. I don't know anything about modems at all, having never used one before, but I am trying to learn.

I have installed the latest generic drivers for Lucent Win Modems from the Agere site. Is there a way that I can get Modem on Hold (or even disconnect) to work with this modem? Do I need different drivers? Or do I need to look for a Modem on Hold applet and install that for this modem too? If so, where can I find it for this modem? I'm probably asking some really dumb questions, but any info would be much appreciated.

Hi everyone,

I remember posting that before. But at that time I had a different version of Firefox. I have now v. 38 of FF and v. 45 of Thunderbird.

Well, the preset e-mail FONT does not work. It ignores my setting and gives me a "generic" font. I don't understand why.
Also, a big bug, I believe - - in v.45 TB is if I have an underlined URL whatever text is entered on next line gets interpreted by TB as continuation of URL and gets underlined and colored blue the same way as URL itself. This is really crazy.

What should I do to make Thunderbird work correctly??? Should I uninstall v. 45 and install older version that worked fine??? BTW I tried to install v. 44 w/o uninstalling 45 and it did not work.
Those 2 things about v.45 are quite annoying ...

There are times when I leave my computer while it is busy doing something for a very long time, usually overnight, (500 MB download, 4 hour spyware scan & PC tuneup, etc.) and I do not want the screensaver to kick in and possibly disrupt whatever the computer is doing. The screensaver is also password protected for casual walk-by security (computer is at home). Continually changing the screensaver properties is a hassle, and sometimes I guess too short a time and the screensaver messes up the task.

Question: Is there a simple app ("low resource usage") I can run that "tickles" the operating system and prevents the screensaver from kicking in? I would like to include it in a batch file that would run it with whatever activity I am doing so that when the long whatever finishes the app would also finish and the normal screensaver timeout would start. I can handle the batch file part, but what app can I use?

OS: XP Home. After setting Print preferences in Control Panel, Printer, to 1. Plain paper. 2. A4, Potrait. 3. Apply & OK the printer obeys. Once.
After that Plain paper becomes Env, and A4, Portrait becomes DL (an envelope size) and Landscape. To have to check the setting before each print is bore. Clicking the Default buttons does restore the Control Panel Defaults, again once. Canon recommended Uninstall and reinstall from the CD. Of course there was no fix. The driver is upto date. Does anyone have an idea?

Just a shot in the dark....

Is there a cannon control panel? A desktop icon, or a taskbar icon? If so it's setting might supersede the settings within Printers and Faxes.

Hey guys,

I love the site so far and it will get better and better as more content is being added to the forums. Have you guys ever thought of having a chat?? I see you could probably add a couple more tabs beside the tutorials to bring in some more stuff along the top bar. Mibbit is a nice ajax client you can easily connect to an irc server, you can check it out at Mibbit.com Webchat if you want.

Anyways just thought I would see what you guys had to say, and what you hope for this forum to bring?

I removed the AVG they installed. My concern is, if this laptop here is infected, would it also endanger the other computers in the house that are on same network?
 
What should I do now?
 
I can't really think, there are so many things to do, like change all the passwords everywhere which isn't so easy on a tablet. Everything is moving so slowly, my ADD brain is in overdrive, and I really need this computer.
 
It is right now acting fast and normal again after I got rid of the AVG Cloud thing. Maybe the danger has passed and I should just focus on getting all my passwords changed? There are many, oh so many. Sniff.

Would a System Restore help? I was going to try it but I can't find it. They really cleaned me out. They took things that I don't even know what they were.
 
I looked for System Restore (which they also did, but I don;t know what date they used), but I don't see it anymore. Isn't it supposed to be under Accessories?

Hi,

I have a lot of spyware and adware on my system. I have removed a couple of them manually, but ther's so many and I'm afraid I may remove something vital.

Aside for all the anonying adds, my system is extremely slow, it is also locking in some programs as well as the start bar and windows task bar.

I have remove CommonName and Downloadware as well as 4 trojan horses.

Also, since I've removed these programs I have had a couple of new toolbars show up in IE.

Thanks for your help.

Greetings,

I have an ad-hoc wireless network in my home and need remote modem-on-hold. I live in a rural area where there are far more deer than people, with no chance of a broadband connection being offered by my phone company.

My wife and I both run businesses out of our home that require us to be on the internet a great deal through our 56k dialup connection. Clients occasionally call, and though we have the "Callwave" service it is not really what we need.

I am looking for a way that any of the computers on the network can use the modem-on-hold v.92 feature so that a network user can answer the call by voice even though the modem in use is on the network server as an ICS internet gateway. All computers are running XP Pro.
Any one know how this can be done?

Thanks in advance,
Nathan

Greetings everyone.

The title more or less speaks for itself.
I restored a computer with a magnificent soundcard inside, an SEK'D 5.3. Only problem is that XP won't recognize it. I have the CD-ROM with the drivers, but I also need a floppy disk which is required for full installation.

I contacted the one responsible for the SEK'D driver-distrubution in my country. Only problem was that he sort of perished for more than 10 years ago, I was told.

I've also contacted the SEK'D customer-contact in the US, but I don't know if they even care about what I have to say...

And thus, I need to find a retail-distrubution of that floppy (named "Prodif", btw).
Where on Earth should I look for the files or the disk-image? I am (even) willing to buy that floppy-image!
 

A:SEK'D 5.3 drivers impossible to get hold of

1)
Make sure devices are connected and powered on
Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
On the other hand, if no devices are listed, tell me so
2) Generate and attach a DirectX report

Click Start->Run, enter dxdiag
Notice progress in lower left window corner
When done, click Save Information button and save to your Desktop
In TechSpot, use the paper clip icon to attach the report. (If you don't see icon you may need to first click Go Advanced)

Hi,

This is driving me crazy. I am using winxp. I have checked off "never dial a connection" as I am mostly on a dsl connection. I recently established a dial up connection which is to be used when I am on the road. However, my computer now frequently attempts a dial up connection even though I am connected to the dsl line. Each time I have to cancel the dial up and reconnect the dsl connection. I have done everything, but the never dial a connection just doesn't hold and and seems to revert to "dial whenever a network connection is not available". If I eliminate all my dial up connections I obviously don't have any problems.

One article I read spoke of a registry change of autodial from 0 to 1 but that didn't help....

Any suggestions?
 

A:never dial a connection won't hold

Hello and welcome...

Try this...
go back to the screen where you set to never dial...hit LAN settings... check automatically detect settings box.

If that doesn't fix it post back what changes did you make to the system around the time the problem.

I have a Phillips Sonic Edge 5.1 sound card that has the modem on hold feature. I don't use it and I get tired of clicking on the phone icon and disabling the feature. Sometimes I forget and the darn thing corrupts my dial up so that I get the phone and my attempt to dial up at the same time. Then I have to re-install the sound card to get back on the net.

Along with that problem is that I can't completely un-install the phillips card from add/remove programs. I get the message that some dll file is missing.

Is there a way for me to permanently disable the modem on hold thing?

The modem on my Dell XPS400 (With Win XP) died a few weeks ago. (Made a noise like it was stuck and blue error screen everytime I tried to go online)
My grandson had a moden (unused, he uses a wireless router) and put it in, with a driver he got online.
Worked good, but the Modem On Hold (which had worked, and my ISP supports) no longer did. When clicked it said "No supported modem installed"
I looked around online and seems like it needed a V92 modem and the one I had in said V90.
I just got a Motorola 56k v92 Internal PCI Data/Fax Modem V.92. I looked at various websites about it first, and one of them said it could be used for Modem on Hold.
I put it in, even went to the specific folder on the driver CD to put it in from the one the enevlope said to use (the first time the CD auto picked up on a driver, and it worked but not the Modem on Hold) It still says "No supported modem installed".
Though it goes online. I have a Caller ID box on the phone line before the computer, that shows incoming calls (red light goes on the box) but I liked how the Modem on Hold popped up and actually rang, so it could be heard if I wasn't right in front of the computer.
Do I need another/different modem? New driver, or something to set up the Modem in some way?
I found some posts about this on this board, but couldn't find any real answers.
Thanks,
Carrie

My dad has a wireless broadband cnnection in out house, with a belkin router with three prongy things. My dads laptop has a connection to it; the wireless within the house is security protected. We put in a hex code and everything was fine. The other day i got a laptop and tried to connect to the wireless, and entered the hex code - everything was fine and i could connect. Now however my dad can't connect. After a few tried we figured that putting in the hex code for one of the laptops kicks out the other? I am using a belkin router, with AOL isp...........
