I think the R7-371T has a Synaptics digitizer. I downloadeding the windows 8 drivers from synaptics but the install fails(I've run it in administrator mode as well). I contacted Synaptics and have not gotten a response. One of the main reasons, I got this laptop, is to hopefully use the active pen for pressure senstivity in PS with out the need of a second device. The **bleep** pressure seems to work on OneNote and Sketchbook Pro. If I cannot got the hardware to work the way I intended to use it, I may return this thing for a Surface Pro 3...

I'm asking this question so i can answer it! I looked all over the net for this answer. i even ran diagnostics loaded a new driver. On and on...nothing worked. Well here is your answer:F
Look at your F keys. normally its the F7 key that controls your mouse. Hold down your Fn key and press F7 once. this will turn your mouse on and off.

Hello.

I just bought Acer Aspire V5-573G laptop

I can access the internet with wifi, no problem, but I can't access with cable.
I upgraded to SSD today so it has been reinstalled and still doesnt work.
It seems to notice the cable but it shows a "!" and says Limited.
I'm running on Windows 8.1 64bit
I really want to try everything before sending it to repairs.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

A:LAN doesn't work on Acer Aspire V5 573G

check the LAN plug there are two small LED's both lit when LAN cable plugged in..

Also verify that the driver you installed from OEM is for windows 8.1 x64

another option is to go into device manager and remove the driver and see if MS Update has a driver for it

    Hello guys. I have an Acer Aspire E1-531 and the touchpad stop working. It works fine 2 days ago. Now I had to fix the DC power cable. Evertying works fine, except the touchpad.    I googled the problem and I found that the bios should have an option Touchpad with choices Basic, Andvanced, but I can't find that option in my bios (bios version 2.21). How should I procced?   Thanks for your help. P.S.: Do you think it doesn't work because I pulled out the motherboard battery and I put it back or beucase I'm using Legacy Boot Mode?

Hi.I've been attempting to upgrade the hard drive on my acer aspire 4920. from 120gb to 320 gb .Tried using recovery disks but after successful install I get the restart message then nothing on reboot.Also tried cloning the original disk to the new drive but still no luck. (get the restart loop)Been considering updating to the latest bios (version 1.21) but leaving that action open as a last resort.Anyone help with this?

A:Acer aspire hard drive upgrade doesn't work.

You didn't say which OS you have but with Windows 7-up you should be able to create a recovery flash drive and save a system image on a hard drive. Then use the recovery drive to restart the machine with the new disk and when asked, tell it to recover from the system image you saved. ps this works if going from a smaller to an equal or larger disk but not to a smaller one.

You're doing all the right things but instead of just tapping the mic, I suggest you try sitting beside a radio or othe rmusical output and then repeat the experiment. If you still don't hear anything afterwards, post back as to whether or not the system invites you to save the file when you close the utility. I just tried this on my old Toshiba with built-in mic and it worked for me.

I am wondering if anyone has this stylus or has more information than what is one the product page. Does it work well enough to take good handwritten notes?Does the Active Stylus V have palm rejection (so that I can set my wrist on the screen while using the stylus)?What technology does the Active Stylus V use, is it synaptics, N-trig or Wacom?What is the difference between the Active Stylus V and the Active Stylus II (tech wise)?

Touch pad is flicky, and wobbles in its place (very uncomfortable to use) The Laptop screen resolution and brightness are great and it is very responsive to finger touch, and capacitive pens.However when I use the active pen, it works fine for about 5 minutes and then It starts to jump and skips and then the pen stops working. After a restart Pen starts to work but same thing happens. When I hover the pen over the screen it clearly sees it but the movement is not smooth, similarly when I am using the pen to draw it skips and jumps a lot. I have calibrated my screen and still the problem persists. Also ACER claims palm rejection, and the palm rejection does NOT work at all. Has anyone had the same problems? or does your Active pen work perfectly, I cannot determine whether the problem I have is from the Pen or the Screen. Any suggestions? or comments?

I sent my previous unit back and got a new one from microsoftstore. It seems the problems I had were unit specific. This new one works fine, the touchpad in the last laptop clearly had a physical problem since it wobbled and didn't recognize multi-gesture. I am happy with this one, it has a updated synaptics driver, not the newest one (there is a newer Synaptics driver on Acer website for this laptop which still doesn't install) but it works. Contacted tech support, and asked why the updates don't install it seems this model is still a work in progress. They are updating drivers, power managments software etc. Acer's Active pen works fine in ONENOTE, because the application rejects capacitive touch and only works with digitizer input. but in other apps palm rejection is not working. I'm going to exchange my pen as well and see if the problem is with the pen or not.

I bought an Aspire R7-317T a few months ago, and it came with the acer acive stylus. I used it initially, and then didn't use it for about 2 months. When I have gone to use it now, the point of the pen registers on screen with both touching and hovering, but doesn't actually complete the action - so I can't write or use the mouse capabilities for it.

I was reccomended somewhere in the community about the Acer Aspire Active stylus should work with the Aspire R5-571T (or R15). Everything downloaded properly, but when attempting to download the Setup Wizard for the driver that claims to work with devices with Windows 10 pre-installed (which, in my opinion should include the R15 considering the Aspire 13 as well as Switch 10 + 11 are compatible) it simply would prompt me to uninstall it as soon as the content was downloaded onto my computer. My only other option was to cancel, which would prompt an error message. My next step was to attempt to use Setup.exe file which prompted me to code the driver myself...? Is there anything that I can do about this? Whether it be copying and editing the code to work on this system, or just.. anything? Because I'm pretty upset considering it's 1080, it's brightness measures at 310 nits, and it apparently can display 109 percent of the sRGB spectrum, and the whole reason I bought this laptop is because I was told it would be perfect for art (I'm a student).  Any advice is appreciated

I have an ASUS notebook running windows 7 64-bit. I am using the QuietOffice power profile, however the screensaver won't kick in no matter what I do, and the display does not turn off even though I set it to be after 5-minutes of inactivity. I don't know if there is something running in the background... I have turned off my usb wireless mouse, and nothing....

This is another case of factory bloatware interfering - in this case a useless factory utility overriding Win7's superior built-in version.

Googling the Quiet Office feature of Asus there are multiple reported problems. Best to default to the Win7 built-in Power Options in Control Panel. Set up a Balanced Plan unless you're a gamer then use High Performance.

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
- CURRENTLY defragging my C drive, hope something changes..

Anyone know what the heck's going on!?
Anyone got any suggestions on what to do next?
Anything helps and would be greatly appreciated!

In fact it tells me to say yes to the active x bar that appears or adjust my security settings to alow it... Problem is, it doesn't appear and my settings say they are allowed. There is no gold bar saying i need active x the same as when i try to validate it thrugh microsoft t download things. there is no gold bar telling me that i can't do it either.

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.

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.

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.

Hello.
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.

Hi Karstin,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

You would need to re-install Bluetooth software/driver for your system. Please check the link below for finding out the drivers:

The title explains most of it, I'm not sure where to start, new to the forums, and somewhat experienced with computers.

I'm in AHCI mode..when I restart computer, "DEL" to go into BIOS mode, I go to boot option #1 and boot option #2 and I don't see Samsung SSD 850 PRO 256GB ATA Device. What happened was, I took it to a tech to install the SSD and he added it to the computer physically, installed programs or whatever he did, I got it back and I tried to enable ACHI mode, kept getting blue screen, so I decided to click "repair windows installation" and...it system restored to the point where it's as if he just placed an SSD in the computer and said "here you go" I tried reinstalling it myself, reformatted windows, added windows to SSD. I'm loaded from SSD manually.


Hope someone knows how to fix this..I've wasted $70 for the installation, rather try to fix this myself (support from the internet) for future references. Thanks.
Edit: I've been up until 7am since 12/24/14. So yes, I've been googling for hours.

Hi... xp stopped responding and I decided to power off.

Was never able to restart after that. Normal boot shows the windows initial screen, but eventually just restarts, safe mode does the same thing whether it's with network, command line or plain safe mode. Last known good configuration does the same.

Needed to use a file so decided to remove the HD and re-install to another PC. I did have access to the file in question but now I'd like to fix the problem.

The other system uses AVG. I started a scan and it detected Cekar.d (A0003977.exe, wdfmgr.exe and initially ntldr.exe), Dropper.Inor (ntdetect.hta, A0003979.hta), PSW.Generic5.ABVW (ctfmona.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.AAFI (ctfmonb.exe), PSW.Generic5.AFYK (ctfmond.exe), PSW.OnlineGames.ZWT (LotusHlp.exe) and some others but for whatever reason the scan stopped. I restarted it and now the AV still finds most of the threats it was seeing before but not Cekar.d. in the ntldr.exe file.

The system that had the problem was running Win XP Home SP1. Unfortunately, I can't find the manufacturer's recovery CD.

HD is still in the other PC. How should I attack the problem?
 

A:XP doesn't reboot, safemode doesn't work

Update... Three passes of AVG and all threats were put in vault. Tried to re-install the HD to the initial system but no change... System says it didn't start correctly, that a new software of hardware could be responsible, the suggests to try las known good config, none of the options work, they all perform some tasks then windows reboots and ends up in the same screen.

I cannot get Windows Media Encoder 9 to work at all at home, but I have no problems with it at work, so I know I'm not trying to do something with it that it can't handle.

At home, every time I try to convert either an AVI or a VOB to WMV, either using the wizard or the custom settings, it lets me get through it all and then, when it starts trying to encode, it throws up the message:
"Windows Media Encoder has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. ..."

It never gives me any more information than this, just crashes and closes. I've tried repairing it through the control panel, as well as completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but it hasn't helped.

At home I'm running Windows XP Media Center. At work, where I've never had it crash, I'm running Windows XP Professional. Is there something in Media Center that causes it to crash? Is there any patch I can download or thing I can do to get it to work on my home computer?

Thanks for your help.

Are there any alternatives for encoding a video? i dont have much cash right now so i was hoping i might find some freeware alternatives . thanks

I'm having difficulty figuring out this persistent malware. I think it's likely that there are multiple issues.

I'm running Windows Vista.

The malware started off with "google redirect" symptoms, and disabling my Symantec software

Shortly following, I could no longer access the web. However, the malware itself would create an internet explorer popup every 5-10 minutes (not my default browser) that would go to "search sites" (none that I recognized....) and search for lewd topics. Running the taskmanager would show multiple instances of iexplore.exe running on my machine (one for each popup). The popups would have to be eliminated one by one using the task manager.

Trying to run a system restore, I discovered all restore points had been deleted.

I installed AVG antivirus and got it to run once which seemed to help the problem. However, upon restart, all issues were back and I could no longer run avg. Windows defender constantly pops up that a new trojan is attacking my machine.

At this point, I unplugged my internet connection and started using another machine. I had left my problematic computer alone for about a month.

Upon turning it on last night, each time I logged on, it gave me a warning that "Windows had encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute" and would restart. I tried running cmd (in that one minute) to intercept it, but the task manager would freeze if I tried to run it from there and explorer wo... Read more

Dear All
I'm using Dell Vostro 3350 now. After I upgrade Win 10 Pro, the Laptop Speaker doesn't work and can't give output any sound. But if I put my earphone, all of the sound include song work.
I use PC Doctor and scan the computer hardware but there is nothing found error on hardware and software. I also use windows update to scan all of the drivers, but it can't found any update drivers of this laptop. So what can I do next to fix the problem?
Thank you for member's attention

A:Laptop Speaker Doesn't Work But Using Earphone Work

Hello. Dell does not recommend installing Win10 on the Vostro 3350 model. Dell says, "If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected." To get the best performance from your laptop, revert it back to the previous operating system. You can google to find instructions for undoing Win10.
If you want to continue with Win10, then try to install the IDT Win8 audio driver using compatibility mode.
1. Click the link to go to the driver's page. Download and save the driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive. 2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win8.

Alright,

So whenever a program uses InstallShield to install or uninstall a program, it boots up, and the bar fills up preparing to run the Wizard, and right when it fills, an error message pops up: "An error occurred while launching the setup. The specified module could not be found," and then it quits.

This occurs anytime I try to install or uninstall anything that uses InstallShield. I've tried everything at the InstallShield troubleshooting site, including deleting a file in the registry (the problem key was there but deleting it didn't solve the problem), making sure I had admin privilidges, and emptying out the Temp folder. I can't reinstall InstallShield because it (ironically) requires InstallShield to install.

The one problem that I can think of would be that I just got back from college. At college, I logged onto a network to use the computer. Could this have something to do with it? I've tried logging onto the computer itself as the Admin, but the problem still occurs. This whole thing really sucks because the comp is pretty much useless not being able to install or uninstall anything.

Thanks for any help.
 

A:InstallShield doesn't work, none of the usual fixes work

Depending on what version of InstallShield you have here is a site that shows some of it's program errors >
http://helpnet.installshield.com/robo/projects/installshield10-5compact/CP_IHelpBuildErrors.htm

Have you tried this site > http://consumer.installshield.com/

InstallShield uses the Windows Installer Service. It could be that Windows Installer Service has somehow become corrupted.
Check this site out > http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q108201

As a last resort you might consider reinstalling your Windows Operating System on top of itself to repair and replace the corrupted or missing files associated with InstallShield and Windows Installer Service.

Just for your information, InstallShield is the oldest installer program company. However there is another that is completely free “Inno Setup” which you may have seen when installing some programs. Here’s their site > http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php

Good Morning,

Hi, I am a complete newbie to window server though I had manage to install it without any real issue. I had put up Active Directory and get a client (xp) to join its domain and I'm really impress with what it' does since my purpose of wanting to use server was just for Centralizing our small company files. now here come the whole day headaches I wanted to apply the Group Policy's permission/restriction for each individual user to work with Active Directory but I' can't seem to get it right no matter how hard try.

Can someone please walk me through step by step on how to achieve this very issue, please help me out...
 

A:Can't get GPO Editor to work with Active Directory

Hmm.. So what's with the subject? Can you actually create policies and suchlike?

For folder access you don't need policies. Filesystem access is set in the security tab of the folder properties. You can give and revoke access by users and groups no problem. (Or do you want to restrict this folder on a lot of computers at once?)

Before you can do anything with GPOs, you have to download and install the management utility: gpmc.msi Play around with it a little and see some guides about it on the net.

A step by step how to would be pointless because you would miss a lot of essential facts about group policies.

My WIRED modem router is miles away so isnt an option to run another cable.

I saw a thing called a 'switch' for about £5 but dont know if it would work.

Ive tried for 3 days now to make it work using an old wired modem router etc to no end.
There must be an easier way?

All the best

I have a HP Spectre x360 15t and my Active Stylus will not work. I have read a few articles stating that this is an issue with Windows 10. I spent some time updating the BIOS and the pen still does not work. Is there any driver or update coming out soon for this pen to function like it did with 8.1 on 10??

A:Hp Active Stylus Pen does not work with Windows 10 pro

You should check for driver update or missing driver through hp support assistant or through hp support website( link below). If the same does not work then contact microsoft windows help desk.The links arehttp://www8.hp.com/in/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html#.VrA5t9tuJgU for downloading hp support assistanthttp://support.hp.com/us-en for downloading the driver online from hp websiteU could also try update windows 10.

On my system I have a SATA 1TB drive with XP installed on a 50GB partition. I decided to run Windows 7 on another separate drive of 80 GB. Now I wanted to clone the XP to the 80 GB en transplant W7 to the faster 1TB drive. In fact swap partitions. This because I wanted a dual boot system and use some well working XP programs incompatible with W7. The W7 did work well after all, but XP gave problems with the logon. The logonscreen was demanding for a WW (which I didn't install to overcome this problems and left it blank). If I enter on the correct accountname and the blank WW, it says log of, and the screen hangs forever. No return of Administrator account for instance. No way to change that. I did the backup with Acronis 2010 on XP, and Acronis 2011 on W7 (both are incompatible). The problem is that you have to choose options whether or not to rebuild the MBR or Systemfile? Older versions simply took the whole thing at once. What could cause this problem and solve it?

A:Cloning active partitions won't work

Create an Acronis backup of XP, reimage again to a freshly formatted partition. If possible wipe the target HD first (after moving off data) with Diskpart Clean Command to clean the boot sector.

If asked include the MBR and Track 0, providing the original XP is SYstem Active partition.

What happens now?

Can you help in following problem.
There's Windows XP in my computer.

Active FTP connections (where raw FTP command PORT is used) doesn't work in my computer. It's same, which is destination FTP server, and it's same which FTP client I use. Passive FTP connections (where raw FTP command PASV is used) work.

It's already checked that any actual firewall in the network, or my own computer doesn't block the connection. Despite of that the TCP packets, which FTP server sends to FTP client in active FTP connection, doesn't come to my computer. I've checked that with Wireshark.

Is some service missing from my computer?

A:Active FTP connections don't work in my computer

it's been my experience that the server you're targetting tends to determine if you have to use passive or not. Did you check if it for some reason requires it or is blocking the default port?

Hey there i would like to inform you all , all those who have the same problem that i actually fix the problem.IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU NEED TO UPDATE THE AUDIO DRIVER (HD AUDIO REALTEK) TO THE LAST DRIVER IN ORDER TO WORK  (I PARTLY FIXED MY PROBLEM WITH INSTALLING THE REALTEK HD AUDIO DRIVER)...(After installation restart must be preformed)...1. Now first insert the 3.5mm jack from the adapter cable into the jack of the laptop and you will be prompted to choose one of the selected options.. (because you pluged something)(JUST EXACTLY AS THE PIC,  NOTE: I USE WINDOWS 8.1 PRO (other OS may be different) ). So my first mistake was selecting the "Headhpone" option which is actually "mistake"  You must select the "Headset" option, in order the laptop recognize the "3.5mm cable adapter as a headset (headphones)" and after all this you done, then you put the MICROPHONE cable from your headphones to the red jack of the adapter cable, and you put the other jack for the headspeakers in the other green/black jack.This fixed my problem...NOTE: NEVER CHOOSE "REMEMBER MY SELECTION" IN ORDER TO CHANGE YOUR MIND AND CHANGE BETWEEN THE OPTIONS EVERYTIME YOU PUT ON THE 3.5MM ADAPTER CABLE OR SOMETHING ELSE...NOTE: USERS THAT ARE NOT PROMPTED TO CHOOSE SOME OF THIS OPTIONS (IF THE OPTION BOX DOESNT SHOW UP AFTER YOU PLUG IN SOMETHING) NEED TO RESET THE SETTINGS , WHICH I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO THAT , YOU YOU'LL HAVE TO SEARCH ABOUT THAT ISSUE ...THANKS, I HOPE SOMEHOW HELPED ...

One of our computers got hit with a trojan that disabled Norton and Malwarebytes and all browsing except to the pages that tried to get you to buy whatever program was supposed to "fix" the problem. We managed to get rid of the pop-ups warning of impending doom (by deleting the most recent files deposited on the machine) and got Norton and Malwarebytes running again. Malwarebytes found nothing, nor did Norton, but it did clean up the registry. Everything seems fine now, except neither browser -- IE or Chrome -- can get anywhere.

The internet connection is active. I can successfully ping sites from the command prompt, packets are going out and coming in, and the 2nd computer -- which connects through the same router -- can get to the internet just fine (that's the computer I'm using).

I'm to the point where I think all we can do is reformat, but he has soooo much stuff on his computer that it's going to be a major time investment to back up the files and reinstall all the software. I thought I'd come here first and see if anyone had any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

One of my client's Active Directory server (Windows 2003 Server) went down when we installed Service Pack 2. We were able to remove the service pack and get it running again, but until then the client was without any Internet connectivity, due to their DHCP running on the Windows AD. It was a six hour nightmare.

Can a Windows Active Directory do its job without running its own DHCP service? We would like to unload the DHCP from the Windows box to a Linux box or even to the WatchGuard router, but I am not sure how well the Windows server would take this hit to its functionality (or ego ).

Thanks for any insights into this issue.
