L70-B 12z: DTS not working anymore

Q: L70-B 12z: DTS not working anymore


I have a Toshiba L70-B 12z.
Couple of months ago I did experience some problems while gaming (it did crash a lot).
I brought it by the shop who sent it back to toshiba to repair.
They replaced the motherboard because apparently 2 of the 4 cpu's where broken.

When I did get it back I found out my internal speakers weren't working anymore. So I sent it back ones more.
This time, the 2 internal speakers weren broken (how, I don't get) and also replaced. Mind you, it is a 1,5 year old notebook.

When I got it back this time, DTS sound was not functional anymore.
I get the error 'Failed to find apo endpoint'.
I did try to uninstall DTS en re?nstall, but when tries to re?nstall I would get the error 'This product does not support DTS-processing'.
I tried various DTS drivers (older and newest) without succes.

It's very frustrating, since before '**** started hitting the fan' everything worked perfectly fine. DTS sound was working perfectly, and I really liked the sound. I also tried a lot of internet solutions. Re?nstalling windows 10, going back to windows 8.1 (since my laptop originally came with windows 8.1), uninstall, re?nstall and updating sound drivers (from realtek), install the audio enhancement driver, updating BIOS via servicestation, all the recommended drivers for my laptop, all the windows updates. Nothing works.

I really don't know what I can do more for making DTS work again.
I hope someone here can help me.

While trying to clean up the drive of my Dell Inspiron 6400, I must have accidentally uninstalled something. Now my DVD player does not play DVD anymore.
When I go to ?My Computer?and then click on the DVD, I get an error message saying ?This file does not have a program associated with it to perform this action.? The DVD does neither play on DIVX nor on Windows Media Player.
I have checked under ?Device Manager? to see if there was a problem with the DVD driver, but it seems fine. There is no exclamation sign. I even uninstalled the driver and rebooted the computer. It still did not solve the problem.

Can anyone please give me a solution? It is getting quite frustrating.

Thank You in advance.

I've had a TDK CD-RW 40x for a few years now, and it has been working fine up until recently.

I can use the CD drive once, and then after that, when I go into My Computer and hit the CD drive (with a CD in it), it tells me: "D:\ is not accessible. Incorrect Function" but with no CD in the drive, it asks me like regular to put one in. The only way to get it to work again is to restart the sytem. And then, it will work once, again until next restart.

The only thing I really changed was upgrading my Nero burning software to the newest version. Burning works fine, but that counts as my "one" CD use per restart. The InCD software for CD-RW's doesn't work at all.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks for any help.

Hi! This week I encountered a very mysterious problem with the internet connection of my desktop pc. While download is fine as usual, upload is slow at best, not working at all sometimes. Surfing is nerve-wracking, download speed of files is as usual, however some internet speedtests don't even manage to upload 32K files for test purposes and report upload speeds around 2 kbyte/sec.

The problem is not related to my ISP since my laptop doesn't have any problems with the connection (using cable and the same router). I have also tried instaling a PCI LAN card, same problem arises. I have tried using an other cable. I have tried using Ubuntu and here a strange thing happens. The upload speed is lower than with my laptop but still nowhere near normal levels. I have tried using safe mode, same problem.

I have run a hijackthis diagnosis and there are no possibly dangerous entries. The internet connection is also not blocked by malware since NetSpeedMonitor reports 0.00 KiB/s upload speed when I (try to) perform an internet speed test.

Of course I have also searched the forums. My problem seems to be identical to this one (unsolved).

Other observations:
Firefox and IE have the same problem.
Some internet pages don't even load (GMAIL)
Skype seems to have no problems with the internet connection and can even upload files at fairly normal speed!

My specification:
Windows XP nLite (only tweaks) with SP3

OK:If you haven't,I would run your antispyware/antivirus apps.

Hi guys,

just got my new laptop and I'm loving vista.

windows + tab is a really cool feature but it has recently stopped working for me.

alt + tab works fine, but when I hit windows + tab it acts as if I'm just hitting the tab key

I know the windows button is still functioning properly because windows + d still takes me to the desktop.

I don't recall changing any settings that would effect this, but maybe I'm wrong.
Do any of you have a possible fix for this problem?

A:External Tv not working anymore

There is probably a switch/function that must have been set to power on the component and relay the video signals to the TV. Check if you can use any other monitor before making a conclusion to replace parts.
I'll assume you used some some external DC source to power your component, if the voltage or the power rating exceeds the comps requirements, then some parts might be damaged...
Try this; press fn+ crt/lcd buttons in a split of a few seconds and see what happens.

So, I had an old out of date sound card for my PC, and I finally got a new one. After I got this new one my sound worked, and my microphone also worked, for my headset. Today I decided to move my computer into the basement for my own use, and once I get down there I connect everything and it is all good, until I realize my sound isn't working. This is the same problem that happened with my old sound card. I was using it just fine, and unplugged it, 10 minutes later, it stopped working... any suggestions?


A:Sound isn't working anymore...

Go back over your speaker connections and also make sure the speakers are plugged into the AC power. Try it with a headphone and see if it works. Usually, moving a PC to a different area, it turns out to be a connection problem.

About a week ago my notebook started losing time. I initially thought it was a failing cmos battery, but it happens even when the notebook is left on. If i watch anything in full screen, the screen turns off to save power, or i play a full screen game, the clock doesn't keep up. Sure, fixing it temporarily is easy, but highly irritating. If anyone has a fix i'd love to hear it.

So in my PC I have a Sony DVD RW that I've had now for a good couple of years. It has worked fine forever and suddenly it isn't anymore. When I put in a DVD (and yes I have tried many, original copies and burned) it can read the title but it cannot play in any program (RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, PowerDVD). In Windows Media Player, it gives me a message that says "Windows Media Player cannot play DVD video. Open Display in Control Panel, and then lower your screen resolution and color quality settings. To view the DVD Troubleshooter, click More Information.", but I've tried adjusting the resolution and it hasn't helped. I also uninstalled the drive and re-installed it to no avail. If anyone has had this problem or has suggestions that might help I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

Okay it's a bit of a weird one, basically I think I've blown up the whole HDMI related hardware on my desktop. The lead I was using for HDMI wasn;t the most reliable and would have to be plugged out and in sometimes to get it working -

I've tried several other working hdmi leads - tested and it no longer works.
Also used VGA < on Desktop to HDMI < on TV - it doesnt work.

VGA to VGA is working thankfully so I'm using the desktop now to post for help. Any ideas how much this would cost to be fixed? or could I do it myself?. Thanks for any help.

Hi there, brand new user on here but I have been browsing for awhile

I had an issue a few months ago that turned out to be having 2 different antivirus programs on my computer at the same time that kept causing Blue Screens. Nothing's been the same since then. Today I was just trying to get her running better and ran Verifier.exe and luckily the computer's up and running fine still, but I have absolutely no sound now. And the dummy that I am didn't write down exactly the steps I took while using Verifier.exe. I have an HP s5-1060 w/ 6 GB of RAM and an intel Core i5 @2.90 GHz

The thing is that the PC's saying it's working completely fine, no warning or error signs in device manager, the troubleshooter reports nothing wrong. But when i click on the little sound icon down there and the bar raises up and you're supposed to get that little beep.. nothing. I have two sets of headphones, tried both of them in the headphone jack in the front of the computer and in the speaker port in the back. Nothing. So it hadn't been the speakers. Which I hadn't been doing anything w/ them anyway, it's not that the sound is just turned down. It's really odd that the OS is reporting nothing wrong yet even when i try to plug in headphones, I get no sound whatsoever. I have tried to troubleshoot as much as I could but it's been a long day now and I can't figure anything else that it could be except something I did in that .exe program and idk enough about it to go from there.

For some reason, awhile back, I used to be able to record with Stereo Mix on Audacity, Hypercam, even to other people on Skype. But all of a sudden, out of nowhere, it just stopped working. There was a time where it said it was unavailable, but now it says it is working, but when I try to record sound using Stereo Mix, it either doesn't record the sound, or the program doesn't recognize that Stereo Mix exists.

I have "Realtek AC'97 Audio for VIA (R) Audio Controller" under my Stereo Mix properties (I'm guessing that's like the driver or audio device name). When I try to record in Audacity, I get a message saying "Error while opening sound device. Please check the input device settings and project sample rate." The input device (the Realtek AC'97 I'm guessing) says it's "working", and the project sample rate is the exact same as it says in my recording settings. My guess is that Audacity doesn't see "Stereo Mix" or "Realtek AC'97" as a device currently on my computer, which doesn't make any sense, cuz my computer says otherwise. It also doesn't make sense, because I'm able to select "Stereo Mix" as a device for recording IN Audacity itself.

I've read other posts about this problem, and none seemed to be of any help (I've tried the solution posted but didn't fix it). Is it because my "Stereo Mix" isn't set up to my speakers or something? Is it because I have Realtek AC'97 and not the HD one? Could it have s... Read more

Greetings to all, I have been running win 8.1 for a while. At first Bluetooth was working fine. Then last week Bluetooth stopped working. Why, I have got a clue. What I did is just reinstall the drivers from ASUS web site but to no avail. I have looked at 'Event Viewer' but there is no error message pertaining to Bluetooth. In 'Services' Bluetooth is running. I am stumped as far was why my phone that used to connect via Bluetooth to my rig is does not connect anymore. Most of all, I do not know where to look next to solve the issue. My rig has been acting funny recently in many other ways; ie, windows update tells me updates are there to be installed by the update page in 'windows update' is blank. May be different issue than the Bluetooth but I think all related for some reasons. I don't pretend to know anything about IT but would surely appreciate some help PS: I have loads of DCOM errors which I have mentioned in previous post. I have read all I can about DCOM but still can't understand what it is use for and how I can solve issue pertaining to DCOM. zongo saiba

Hi, if this is the wrong forum for this post then I apologize but I have an internet problem. I am on dial up AOL and ever since I uninstalled some programs, one I remember N-Case, my internet won't connect passed step 4 on AOL. It will dial but will not connect. I think this is N-Case that is giving me the trouble, because this has happened before, but I can not go back, because system restore doesn't go that far back. Yes it has been that long. I just never really had any time to mess with it. So I believe it has messed with my settings, because also my network is messed up. It won't even allow me to make a multiplayer game, or find a game connected to the network. I can share files, but that is about it. Also says my IP is a bunch of 0's.

Hey all,
I'm new to this forum. I'm trying to figure out what when wrong with my laptop. I had a trojan attack at some point previously and I'm not sure if it is related, but I recently found that my audio is not working. The audio doesn't work through my speakers as well as headphones. I'm using Windows 8.1, on my Acer Aspire E 15 E5-521-48KN. In the task bar (on the right-lower corner), there's an 'x' mark on the sound icon and when I hover over it, it says 'The Audio Service is not running.' I'm thinking this is probably a software issue and not a hardware one, but I'm not sure. I have tried re-installing the audio driver, but that didn't seem to help.

I would appreciate any help with this issue. I've tried going to a local computer repair store who has asked me to try formatting the laptop, but I'd like to try and avoid that if possible. I've ordered for a recovery disc just in case, however.

Thank you in advance.

I can't access any of the features in the Start Menu except for Desktop (E.g. I click on Mail and the tile has the little animation like it's been presses but nothing else happens). I've also been having trouble with my Cyborg V3 mouse, which worked fine until I moved my computer (which is when the Start Menu started playing up too).

For the mouse I've tried manually installing the drivers after downloading them from Saitek's driver page only for me to be brick walled (I followed the on screen prompts but it came to 'Please select which device you want to install' and wouldn't register my mouse as being plugged in), I tried downloading the driver from Windows Update but it just says it failed to install (Error code: 800f0219). I tried going into Device Manager (it came up as an Unknown Device and kept flashing between the 'Other Device' category and the 'Human Interface category'), uninstalling the drivers I currently had and then re-installing them through Device Manager, which came up saying there was some error with the INF file ('written for W95 or later'). I've also tried defragging and cleaning my registry.

As for when I moved my PC...

Only thing is when I Started putting things together, THere are now 5 screws left and they are teh tiny ones that go around the keyboard area.. anyway i could not for the life of me find where they go anyway i put the laptop back together and noticed the capslock LED flicker then turn off. I then pressed it and it came on but not as bright, I then Pressed HARD and it turned on and then off. I re-opened everything and plained with the ribbon plugs unplugged all of them and put them back on, this time before i put it all together i tested the caps lock key and it worked fine without pressing hard or anything. ANyway i continued and put the rest back together. Guess what? It now does not turn on at all. I re=opened it twice now and Unplugged everything almost and re-plugged it all and NOPE the capslock LED will not work I cannot even find out where it is. It must be embedded in the actually key itself as I looked around the area and its not there. Anyway, what do you think I should do? The key itself works fine its just the LED I am so annoyed can you please ... Read more

A:CapsLock LED not working anymore

By the way its one of these models I think they are all practically similar in style - hp 13t-3000 Does anyone know any complete teardown sites for this? I am so frustrated and angry cause i ordered a complete keyboard surround fascia cause im so picky and now I have 5 tiny screws left and I have this little rubber surround that I THINK should go in the place surrounding the charger but I could not figure out how the HELL it goes back on. SO i left it out. It works fine with out it, and EVERYTHIING else works perfect . You know how the keyboard suround came with the mousepad controlzone? Well even that works better, smoother, the clicks are crisp. Its like its a brand new laptop. Except for that DAM led  ANy help would be great otherwise I will buy a whole new keyboard for it, i mean they are only like $40 bux but can someone confirm if the LED is actually part of the key itself? I think it is because its an Ultrabook its so compact its nuts. I dont think its a damaged ribbon otherwise something else wouldnt work also and the fact that when i first put it together i saw it flicker and dim and then turn off and turn back on when I pressed it hard, as i stated when i re-opened it and finally put it back together. LED wont turn on no matterhow hard i press or even press the surround area. SOrry if its too long but your help is much appreciated Regards Andrew

IE 7 is not working anymore. I get the following error message: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. I'm not sure but I may be this Tuesday's Microsoft updates/patches that are causing the problem or maybe not. Anyone experience this problem after downloading this Tuesday's updates. I get the error message with every web site. I can't load any web sites. Firefox works fine.

OK thing is I was chatting with nVidia live support and he asked me to switch my TV from NTSC to PAL and after doing so my monitor went black and by the time I had rebooted with the s-video cord removed so I could see again live chat went offline.

So, anyone know how I undo that without having the TV attached as doing that again will just make my monitor go black again. Thanks.

So a few days ago I got this nasty piece of spyware that infected my PC. It was one of those redirect ones that infects the boot sector. So I got it cleaned and everything running as it should except for my batch file I have to that runs taskkill that kills all processes of iexplore.exe.

Now all I get when I run taskkill /F /IM iexplore.exe
ERROR - The specific module could not be found.

Turns out I can't kill anything using it now, not even by pids. I can still kill things using the task manager though.

I ran sfc /scannow and everything was fine with the system files. There is nothing weird being run in the task manager and malwarebytes is coming up clean and so is symantec endpoint. No infections anywhere. I even checked to make sure the path was correct.

I am running it as an admin and thats the first thing I checked. My user account shows administrator. So I am thinking something got changed in the registry but I am not sure where to look or what would have changed. One other thing which is odd that started happening after all this is there is no information in the system window on my processor and ram anymore which was showing before I got hit with the virus.

Vista SP2 is the OS I am running.

I wanted to migrate back to Windows8.1, but the mediacreationtool doesnt let me download the windows8.1 iso file anymore. I guess this totally purposely, to force people into Windows10. It just says something like "cant download bla bla" the moment I click ok. A friend tested it too and it doesnt work.

Are there any other save mirrors for a Windows 8.1 x86 iso? Or can I get any logs by the mediacreationtool, why it's not working?

Ok so here's my problem. It started about a week ago.

A week ago I was watching a movie, and I paused it. When I replayed it the movie stopped. I tried re-running it but it woulnd wotk anymore.
Today I tried watching another movie, it worked perfectly. Now I tried putting in a audio CD (store bought music) and it dosn't run. I can hear the drive trying to read it, but theres no actual turning of the CD.

I went to My Computer > Double clicked on D: drive and this pops up "D:/ is not accesible. The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error."
Whats the problem and how can I fix it?
I should also say that when I first had trouble, I would try to take the disc out by pressing the button, and it wouldn't come out. It just stayed in, so inside I had to put a pin in the little hole and then the thing popped out.
By the way I have a Windows XP, Toshiba.

recently at home I switched from wireless to cable. However, when I go back to university (which is where I am now), It's back to wireless. However, first time I tried to pick up the wireless again (which always used to work), I couldn't.

I am using a HP dv6000 notebook. I tried uninstalling and updating to the latest wireless drivers etc... but no luck. I know it's defiantly not a router issue cause my housemates are all connected and I tried connecting to another wireless network and failed.

I did a windows diagnostic test and it said there was a problem with the wireless but couldn't tell me what.

For about a month now, some software in my computer has not been working properly - it crashes immediately on starting, without giving an error message. The problem seems to be fixed after hibernating and restarting my computer several times (Not always), but then it stops working properly once again when I shut down and restart my computer instead of hibernating and restarting it.

The following software seems to be encountering this problem:
Daemon Tools User Interface
Free Download Manager
AVG User Interface

(Note - only the User Interface of AVG crashes. The rest of it works perfectly, detects viruses, etc. Same for Daemon Tools - ISOs are mounted properly, but the UI does not work)

I posted in the virus help forum, but the tools they asked me to use did not give any positive results, so this is most probably NOT due to a virus. Everything else seems to be working properly.

Has windows gone corrupt?

Please help. Thanks in advance.

A:Some software not working anymore

Normally when software starts to play up, a reinstall usually resolves - but as this problem involves more than one program, perhaps running a clean boot may pinpoint the cause should there be a conflict with another program on start up.

Hello. Recently, The homegroup feature on the my laptop and desktop stopped working and I could not get it operational again. When I first bought my laptop, I connected it to my homegroup and it worked perfectly. after that, I really did not touch it but I always noticed that the homegroup did detect the other computer. About a week later after turning on homegroup, I tried to access the files on my desktop but when I tried to click on pictures, I could not access the files. The next day (today), I left the homegroup on both computers and tried to connect it again. At the end of configuration, it said the connection failed there was an error. Then, I tried again and now, each computer cannot even detect that there is a homegroup. We use an AT&T router and the wireless for the house is working without problems.

So, How can I fix the homegroup feature on windows 7? Both network discovery and public folder sharing are both on and it cant be the firewall because it worked before and I never changed any settings on the firewall. Please Help!

Whats funny is around the same time, the wireless printer in our house has stopped working so wireless printing is not possible anymore. I tried to fix it but still nothing yet.

Thank you in advance for the answers.

Can the laptop ping the desktop? Can the desktop ping the laptop? You may do this from a command prompt by typing: ping IPAddress then enter, for ex. ping output can obtain by typing ipconfig /all)

Are you using the Windows built-in firewall or a Software firewall/security?

Both network discovery and public folder sharing are both on and it cant be the firewall because it worked before and I never changed any settings on the firewall.

Alright.First of all hi to everyone.My shift button on keyboard is not working.I don't know why.I repaired my system on 2 January,taken keyboard away,disk,etc. I know how to do those stuffs,because i needed to clean him.On 15 January i got a problem that shift key is going on lack activity.Sometimes it works,sometimes it doesn't.Now it works no more. The interesting thing is that... it may sound ''funny'' because one day i just tested and my shift key works only when i use shift key+K letter. So when i hold shift with K,L,0,9, (something from these 4) it works and then i must hold shift+any of that 4 keys and then i can type everything like _"("(("("$("$("!!!)?>?. Without that,my shift is not working.I assume it has to do with shortcuts,etc. They told me on other forum that my Keyboard is problem and it is Hardware problem not Software nature.So any ideas?

My dvd player no longer works. Since I reinstalled my OS about 3 months ago, both power dvd and windvd don't work anymore. I just reinstalled my OS again last night and both these programs won't work (they give the same errors I was getting before I reinstalled OS). In power dvd, it runs the warning screen but when it should play the movie, it tells me it can't run the dvd with tv out enabled, but my video card doesn't have tv out. In win dvd it just won't go to the root menu.
I don't think it's a software problem because both these programs used to work and now no dvd program will run dvd's on my computer. Any advice?

I like to start with simple things that might work: system restore especially if you know about when your problem began and sfc /scannow (may need to run multiple times--say 3).

No luck with those attempts. Try creating a new user account of the same type with which you typically login. Copy everything you will need to the new account (from C: > Users > Old User Account) if the new account works. Then, delete the old account. You can go back to the original user name similarly. Before you do so, make sure that deleting the original user account also deleted that users folder in C: > Users. Sometimes this folder does not get deleted. If not, then going back to the original user name creates a minor only superficial "problem." To delete the folder, you may have to take ownership. I would not go back the original user name using any other procedure.

Open Device Manager and see if there are any red x's or yellow flags next to your network adapter. Next, open a command prompt, Windows Key + R, type cmd and then type the following without the quotes and paste all the results back here, "ipconfig /all". Also check, open IE, click Tools, Internet Options, Connection Tab and then the LAN Tab and in the window that opens make sure that all the check boxes are clear, if not clear them and close IE and re-open IE.

This is worrying, and you should not make permissions changes unless you know exactly and precisely why.

Given where you are, I suggest an in-place upgrade repair install.
Precede it with this in case sthg has happened to your file system:

From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Make sure the result is clear or fixed.
Post back the result, which will be on the screen briefly.
Otherwise you can get the result as follows:

An In-place upgrade repair install will fix many things, but not those where the settings are not changed by the procedure.

For this you need an installation medium with the same base build as you have installed.

This is my first post here, and I came here to ask advice on a big problem, so bad I'm posting this from Knoppix Linux because windows gets stuck in an infinite boot loop. Let me tell you the history of my windows disintegrating: a few months ago, my windows was still logging in but DWM.exe stopped working. This was fine because explorer.exe started up a minute later one week ago, after logging in, I got a black screen with only my cursor. I couldn't do anything, exept unistalling my video driver and unistalling avast anti-virus, because that was causing troubles. I could only do this in safe mode. Surpisingly I was able to reboot and after waiting a little longer, I could work normally. Until yesterday, when windows was functioning normally, I got messages that some files became unreadable and corrupt. I immediatly shut down my pc and started startup repair, I tried system restore en system repair multiple times, but neither of them worked and when I rebooted, My system got stuck in an infinite boot loop. Today, I can still acces all the files on my hard drives, but when I try to check and repair the filesystem, Knoppix found some bad sectors in my hard drive. Now I am hopelessly looking for answers and I thought asking some help on this forum. Kind regards, Durneztj

Hi, I've been running Windows 10 for a couple of months without any real problems. I've downloaded a couple of free games from the Microsoft store. I recently ran a registry clean up program that deleted a number of empty files, folders and registry keys. Since then my two games have disappeared and when I select Store from the dialogue box I get a brief screen flash then nothing else happens. I've found the store using my browser (Chrome) and tried to download the games again using the 'get game' button but nothing happens. I have cleared the store cache but this doesn't help.

I've not got any antivirus running except Defender. Tried a restore to a couple of days ago but it failed! Have checked region, date and time, all correct.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here it is....

On 3/26/09, I downloaded the new msn 8 internet upgrade, from IE 7. I assumed they were the same thing, because no matter if I was in yahoo or msn hotmail, the same icon link flashed at me to "upgrade".... okay you get that.

As the downloading was finishing, suddenly my system began to "stall" again -- this occurs just before you experience that annoying popup: "Internet Explorer has experienced an error or issue and cannot continue. Please close down all remaining programs and allow to shut down....." etc. Well, because msn 8 upgrade was almost done, my system was rebooting, regardless. Well, upon the reboot -- suddenly I get this "panostandalone" popup asking for disk1, which I found out later you could simply ctr+alt+del, and it would go away. But you don't want to keep doing that! I was able to get back online again, but now discovered all my explorer Toolbars were missing, replaced by this msn tool thing. So I Googled 'install yahoo and explorer Toolbars', but nothing happened. So now I discover that something with that msn 8 download actually botched my system and locked some commands!

I managed to remove the msn 8 and reload the former IE 7 okay---but still no Toolbars. My locked system also will not open any download features.

Hi all,About an hour ago I encountered a problem with WGA. I beleive the ActiveX in IE was corrupted so I deleted it and re-downloaded it now everything works fine in IE but firefox is a different kettle of fish. I downloaded the WGA tool and ran it but it wouldn't give me a code. I AM using genuine windows XP Home edition (lol if I got it pirated I'd go for pro). What the heck is going on? Anyone?

A:Wga Validation Tool Not Working Anymore!

Have you tried Uninstaling firefox and re installing it, It could be a problem with the system as opposed to the browser, are activex controls allowed to run in the Internet zones?

I have a Samsung R720.
My touch-pad has been working fine for a few years but now refuses to even turn on.

I've tried a lot of things. Formatted everything and installed a new copy of Windows 7.
Downloaded all sorts of touch-pad drivers (synaptics etc).
All kinds of things in device manager.
Deleted mouse/synaptics drivers and installed again.

I'm quite lost now. When I use the hotkey to turn on/off the touch-pad I always get this message. It always says off, and the light of my note-pad never even turns on anymore.

I've installed the synaptics driver, and the touch-pad driver from the Samsung site and still I see this.

All I want is just lay down in my bed with my notebook but I can't anymore.. could anyone help me out, please?

A:Notebook touch-pad not working anymore.

It looks like you've tried pretty much everything that's software related. So that leaves a hardware related problem (perhaps the touchpad itself is no longer working. It could require a replacement of the touchpad itself or another component in the laptop. If the touchpad cannot get repaired, you can keep an external mouse connected to the laptop as a workaround.) Couple of articles that may offer some additional ideas.

I really need some help please, as i have never come across this problem before.

Approx about a week ago for some reason my flash drives and ipod are not correctly recognised all of a sudden through the USB connection.

When I plug them in, windows Xp makes the noise that the devices have been plugged in...but for example my flash drive does not come up with autoplay anymore, and is not seen in My Computer.

I checked the drives via computer management in device manager and my flash drives and Ipod are displayed there, but are not in disk management. Also when I safely remove the hardware they are listed there also, but I have no access to them...PLEASE HELP! they have been working for years and all of sudden just stopped!

Is this a windows issue?

Hello there,

I have a headset with microphone and I use 3.5 mm cables in the rear jacks of my PC. Audio OUT is working fine, but audio IN is not working anymore (the pink slot). I tried the microphone in my cellphone and the sound works. When I plug in my microphone cable, the PC detects it, but no sound is recorded. I tried uninstalling all the sound drivers and rebooting to no avail. It was working before.

I have jacks on the front of the PC too, but they never worked. I think I broke it installing it. When I put cables in it, they show something was inserted, but just pick up white noise.

tl;dr :

Microphone and cable are working
Cable is detected when put into mic input
No sound is detected
Drivers uninstalled and reinstalled
It was working a few days ago

Any help would be really appreciated, thanks!

A:Microphone input not working anymore

There was an exact same problem posted on the Windows 8 forum. The resolution there was to "refresh" the sound driver. I thought it had been left hanging and unresolved but after looking at the thread again, it was fixed with the "refresh".

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for your sound and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will reinstall the sound.

If the front panel jacks do not work, best to disconnect them from the motherboard sound connector to prevent any possible conflicts with the rear jacks. Unplug the audio connector for the front panel audio jacks. The Connector will either be labeled HD Audio or AC97. The audio connection on many motherboards is on the lower left.

I have had this problem too on occasions. I would suggest logging into the router Then I would go through and double check your settings. Make sure obtain ip address automatically is how yours is set up. Tinker with the settings and you should be able to get back on the net through the router. You know your internet connection is fine. The only reason it won't work through the router is that there is something it does not like now.

So, I just wanted to burn a CD, and I noticed that the light on my DVD-burner is not on, and I couldn't open the tray. So, I checked if the power cord was disconnected. Was not.

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

It's been a long time since I've really used Incredimail due to hard drive limitations (it's a resource hog!). But I kept it by, in order to store important older email folders. The originals were at Hotmail; but after a huge hacker disaster at MSN, my hotmail accounts are gone. And so the only copies of these important emails are locked inside my Incredimail. However...when I decided to go digging into it again, I discovered to my horror that it no longer functions. Weirdly, Letter Creator comes right up but the regular program doesn't. I see that it's all stored in my computer, and so far as I know, nothing has been deleted.

I've tried updating Internet Explorer and making it my default browser. That didn't help. I've read somewhere that downgrading Firefox to an older version from about a year ago, helped one guy. I'm leery of doing that, but it might help me??

I have tried - repeatedly - to register at the official Incredimail help forum, but I am not receiving any registration emails. Fat lot of good they're being!

Can anyone help me? Any brilliant suggestions?

I recently bought a 2TB hard drive to backup all my old hard drives (3 320GB, 2 500GB, 1 200GB). Since all my sata ports were being used I decided to unhook one of my 320GB hard drives that didn't have many files to use its sata cable. Since I don't remember the physical location of all my hard drives I turned off my computer and unhooked one at a time till I found it. The new 2TB hard drive works perfectly so far. The problem is one of my 500GB hard drives has now been having serious issues after being hooked back up.

Just the other day I had done SMART checks on all my hard drives and they all were fine. My 500GB has never had any issues at all. It is probably pretty close to 5 years old. But at first it was causing my windows 7 to take an extra minute or so for starting up. It was being really slow at showing files on the 500GB hard drive. It would eventually open files after a couple minutes. I turned off my computer and tried a different sata cable and power connector. It still acted the same.

I tried running HD Tune but now the 500GB hard drive disappears from My Computer and Disk Management before I can run any tests. I would have run a CheckDisk too if I could. So I had my brother bring over his external hard drive enclosure and put it in that. It wouldn't show up in My Computer, but it would come and go in Device Manager. Then it started popping up errors saying it needed to be formatted now. Other than it sounding like it was spinning faster and the... Read more

So, I've been trouble free on Windows 7 for a long time. Today, while searching for a document containing the word "audit" I realized that my Windows 7 search is not returning correct results.

I open up the Documents library link, and I see all of my files. I see files with the name audit in them. I go to the top and put audit into the search field and it comes back with 2 files...and misses handfuls of other files that contain the word. I then search for .xlsx (as this is a spreadsheet) and I cannot find that either. I can find other .xlsx files, but not a good handful of them.

I've cleared the index and rebuilt it, but that didn't resolve the issue. My results are the same as they always were.

I retried connecting to my own wireless router(which seemed to get a strong signal) but it does the same thing (and yes I did enter the correct encryption ID pass).

Well here's the deal. I own a 1GB MicroSD TransFlash Card for my phone, an LG enV. I don't have a port to directly transfer files to my card, so what I do is I take the microSD card and put it in an adapter and plug that into my camera. I transfer my files from the camera and once I'm done, I take it out and put the card into my phone.

For about 6 months it's been working fine.
Today I decided to put a .PNG file into the card so I can set it as my wallpaper on my phone. I dragged the .PNG file in the MY_PIX folder, and unplugged the camera. I then put the card into my phone like I've always done.
My phone started acting very strangely. I could still access my MP3 files that were in my TransFlash card, but a few things happened while the card was in my phone:

- 2 second delays when you press END to get to the main menu.
- I can't access two of my .JPG files on the card, along with the .PNG file I added today.
- I took a picture with my camera feature on my phone and attempted to save it, but it kept saying ERROR.
So I took out the card and played with the phone a bit. Everything turned out fine. The delays stopped, it was perfectly fine.
I put the TransFlash card back into my camera and attempted to take out that .PNG file that I added.

Hi to all @ TSG

I have been using the freeware Any video converter with great success. I was merging serveral video files and the end result was one nice video. The following day, I wanted to do the same with some more files BUT it didn't work anymore!

I disabled AV and firewall to no avail.

What happens now is this. I add the videos and then hi-light and MERGE and click CONVERT (as I did before). It goes through the motions converting and gets to MPEG2 and then 100% but then the whole program closes!!! Nothing in the Output folder. I have recently noticed that the Output Duration only has the time for one video file and not the total videos in the line up. Not sure if this is correct or not? I never looked here before because all worked fine without any problems.

Any advice, please, please? This is driving me mad. I even tried it on my other laptop but with the same results.

The scroll bar on my touchpad is no longer working. I went to the file to launch reinstall but it says that the file "SYNTPEnh.exe" on the Synaptics Driver Installation Disk is needed.
I do not have the installation disk??? Also my antivirus "quarantined something from the touchpad file and said it was a trojan...What can I do to get the scroll feature working again?

All my addons and themes stop working and I can't get them to work even if i try to download them again. They are all there, they just don't respond and I am having difficulty uninstalling them. Please help!!!

A:[SOLVED] Addons Not Working anymore!!!

did you just do the newest upgrade? sometimes when FF upgrades to a newer version, the addons/themes don't work until they are upgraded too.

I have a Dell Inspiron 720 with an HDMI port in the back. I have been using it with my Samsung TV to watch movies on. Now it no longer works. I ordered a new cable but it keeps telling me to check power supply, cable connection, and the make sure it's on the right setting. I have 2 hdmi ports on the back of my TV but still come up with the same error condition when I switch them. It appears the port in the computer is not working anymore. I have tried everything but nothing works. I am running an ATI 4200 which is on the motherboard. Can this be fixed or would I have to buy a new graphics card to get it working again. I did swap the cables but still get the same results. Does anyone have any ideas because I have run out of them???

A:HDMI Port not working anymore

The only way to fix it is to buy a new motherboard, do yourself a favor and buy a new video card instead, Dells are not worth fixing. But if it`s under warranty well then that is a different story.

If that`s a laptop then your ONLY option is to replace the motherboard, very simple to do.

EVGA - Products - Graphics

MSI USA - Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more

What keeps telling you to check the power supply ???
