I have Windows 8 and have not been able to connect to the internet.


There are several possible reasons to have a connection fail. You could have a driver issue, the network adapter may have failed, the passkey/SSID aren't correct (for wireless connections) or the router/WAN network is down. (The WAN being disconnected happens with my systems at regular intervals.) If the router/access point has been secured to limit the number of devices on the network or only allow certain MAC addresses, use a different device to log in to that router and increase the number of allowed devices. (This will depend on the make/model of your router. It's probably under the Advanced settings.)

What type of hardware are you using (laptop/desktop/tablet)? What make and model is it? If you have both wired and wireless network adapters, try making a new network with the other adapter. Also try to create a new network connection for the current adapter.

You can check for driver issues from the desktop clicking the Windows key + X (on systems with keyboards) and choosing the Control Panel. Then under System and Security (or Hardware and Sound) choose the Device Manager. Scroll down to the Network Adapters and expand that section by clicking on the plus sign. If there is a triangle with an exclamation point or a red x, then you have a driver issue. Use another machine to download the drivers and place them on a USB drive or other external media. Install the drivers. (If you can use a different network adapter, then just download and install the drivers.) Try the network trouble-shooter to identify a problem.

If updating the drivers doesn't work, check if other devices do connect to your network. If another device works, try a USB network adapter (or for a desktop, a PCI/PCI-e network card). You may need to disable the on-board network adapter in the BIOS. (This is hardware dependent again.) If other devices can't access the network, try directly connecting a wired network to your DSL, FIOS, or cable modem. If the direct connection doesn't work, then contact your provider. If the direct connection works, try a new router/access point.

I hope this helps.

(note: on an older XP laptop with only USB 1.0 ports, I recommend replacing the device, instead of a USB network adapter. The USB port speed will make the network connection excessively slow.)

PCI Slot 5 (PCI bus 1, device 7, function 0) IN DEVICE MANAGER THERE IS A YELLOW QUESTION MARK NEXT TO PCI MODEM.EVERYTHING SEEM TO BE WORKING NORMALLY BUT WHEN I START MY COMPUTER I AM BEING INFORMED...


If you don't need the modem, you can safely disable this questionmarked device in Device Manager, so it does not nag you every time you start Windows.

As far as the disk is concerned, you may try going to Disk Management (in XP you right click My Computer and choose Manage, a Computer Management window will show Disk Manager will be on the list near the end).
Study the list of volumes listed in Disk Manager; if you see a volume of more-or-less the same capacity as your ext. disk, and without a drive letter assigned, than right-click that volume and choose Assign / Change Drive Letter. Choose a letter farther into the alphabet so it doesn't interfere with any existing volumes - my favorite is X: for eXternal :) - and confirm.
After that operation the drive should appear in My Computer.

Hi ! so i recently reinstalled windows XP pro onto an msi ms-1012 laptop and after that i couldn't get internet by Wireless. and i started to install the required drivers and i could not find the wifi...


i think u shoul look under network adapters.... pci modem is for the modem which u have on ur computer... and that is used when u connect to the internet using a dial up connection.. wherein u insert the telephone jack onto ur computer and then dial in a specific number to get connected to the internet... check under network adapters and see whether u have any wi-fi drivers are missing or not?

Code 10 problem showing in on modem(device manager)


that is a problem with your DIAL-up modem which is the old style, use your phone and dialin type of internet connection. so basically if you're on high speed you dont really need it, you can right click and disable. if the modem is in a desktop in a pci slot, you can actually just remove it all together. code 10 means the device wont start either due to hardware failure or bad drivers...but again, its a dialup modem and oyu're on highspeed so you dont even need it.

Cannot connecet wireless adapter to pc


Open a command prompt. Do this by either clicking Start, then Run, then typing cmd and clicking OK, or find it on the Start Menu under Programs=>Accessories. It will open a black window. Leave this window open because you'll be typing a few commands into it.

The first one is devmgmt.msc. Type "devmgmt.msc" (no quotes) and press Enter. Device Manager will open. Expand Network Adapters. Do you see your adapter? Does it have a yellow exclamation point on it? If so, you either need a driver or there's some kind of resource conflice/hardware problem. If you don't see it under Network Adapters, you need to install the driver.

If the driver's installed, are you using any software to manage it? Generally, I find that using the Wireless Zero Configuration service with XP (you didn't specify the operating system. You should do that next time) works best in most situations, which isn't to say that it's not flaky. Anyway, back in the black box, type "net start wczsvc" (no quotes again; you'll get it). You should see a monitor icon with 2 green curves next to them in the taskbar, on the bottom-right of the screen. Double-click that. Do you see any wireless networks? You might get a message saying that something else is managing your adapter. Make that stop. How you do that depends on the management software you're using, but there's probably an icon by the clock that you can right-click or something and disable. Once you get that sorted, back on the Wireless Zero Configuration utility, you might have click "View Wireless Networks" and/or "Changed Advanced Settings," then go to the Wireless Networks tab and check the box that makes Windows manage that wireless device. Anything yet?

If not, remind yourself that computers are fun, and they enhance your state of Being. Feel free to swear and curse it, and even the Four, Noble Truths if you're feeling verbose (I seem to be). If none of that works, you might have to post telling what didn't work.

Or get a cable.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00840496.pdf

if your system is still within warranty I would think twice about opening the case yourself to installing a new network card.. you will be voiding your warranty.. so think about it

another thing i would try before deciding on going for another network card is to check your onboard network adapter has updated drivers... or you may want to reinstall the drivers for that adapter.. either one of those may probably fix your issue assuming is not a hardware failing given that your system may not be that old.... make sure you check the windows update and look for any new hardware driver for your network adapter that may be avaliable through windows update.

before you install your new network pci card you may have/want to disable the one on board going into your bios for that. so to ensure there's no resource conflicts when installing the driver for your new card (it may not be a problem even if you don't but if you run into problems while installing the new card consider this suggestion)

Installing modem


By the looks of your question, it appears you may have an internal PCI modem. If that is the case, please state your PCI modem brand and model. You may have what is called a WinModem or "softmodem" because they were usually US Robotics modems made strictly for windows. They are known to be buggy with their software drivers and hard to install but not impossible. Since softmodems use your CPU's power one solution would be to change to an external modem (since they have their own processor) and save yourself some headaches later on.

Thanks.
