Hi,

based on the little information you provided, I suggest to do a complete virus scan. Also check how much free HD space you have left and how much RAM is installed. You may be running out of space for some reason. Clean the File Trash Bin as well.

It would be great if you could post what OS you are using.

Hope this helps.

Slow start up and shut down


Hello,

You didn't mention what version of Windows (Is it Windows, or is it Linux / other?) that you are using. For laptops in particular, windows sometimes gets confused as to which power saving state that the laptop should be in.

Next time that windows is running, you should see an icon of either a battery, or of a power plug in the area next to the clock (lower right corner). If you LEFT click on this, there will be a list of various power schemes that are available. MAX BATTERY will reduce the processor speed the most, while ALWAYS ON turns off power saving altogether, and allows the laptop to run at full speed.

If your fan always seems to be on, or seems to be cycling on and off rapidly even though you are doing little with the computer, then you might need to have the fan and heatsink cleaned out (consult a computer shop). When the processor starts to run hot, the motherboard will begin to slow it down regardless of the power scheme.

You might also be looking at a program that is loading during startup (did you just happen to install Open Office by chance?) that also takes a while to unload while shutting down. Consider what you have recently installed, and check your startup menu (click start >> programs >> startup ) to see what is being loaded there.

My HP Pavillion dv2700 stopped accessing internet abruptly when it was still running Vista Premium 64 bit. I changed to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit by formatting and fresh installation. The problem remained...


If you are at home, your network settings have to be a "Private" network. Go into the control panel > Network and Sharing Center > Look under the text "View your active network" and click on the blue text. Make sure you choose "Home Network".

Now, click on Advanced sharing settings, you will see it to the left and make sure that network discovery is turned ON. save your changes and exit.

Now, bring up a browser window and don't worry if it doesn't connect yet. Once the window is up, look tot he right and choose the drop down menu "Tools", scroll down to the bottom and choose "Internet Options", Click on the tab "Connections", look to the bottom of that window and clicl on "LAN settings", When that windown opens make sure that only the top box is checked and that all others are unchecked. The only thing you want checked is "Automatically detect settings".

Now, reboot the machine and see if you have internet access.

If the other laptop can't see the network, then it sounds like you somehow turned off SSID broadcasting while you were in the router's settings. Log back into your router and look for the SSID broadcast enable setting. Make sure it is set to on, then save the changes and reset the router if you have to. The laptop should be able to see it now. (There is also a setting in the Windows wireless network properties that you can check to connect to a network even if it is not broadcasting, as long as you have connected to it previously.)

Hope that helps!

I need to establish home network using my laptop as host


Are all the computers on you LAN running Vista? If so, (or even if not) which version?

Computer networks work best when the computers on those networks have a Network Operating System (NOS) installed, rather than a desktop operating system (OS). The best way to tell the difference is with the word PRO on the former or HOME on the latter.

Vista on home networks brings its own basket of troubles as well, particularly when connecting to non Vista computers.

Having laid all that out there for you, let's talk networks. You don't give many details, so, I'll make some assuptions based on new equipment (routers).

The best way to install a router, is to have the primary home computer connected via an ethernet cable. This allows the programming of the router to enable "cloning" of the MAC address. The reason to do this is so that the ISP (DSL or Cable company) will always appear that there is only one pc connected. This enhances your security.

Once that is done, the security feature can be adjusted on the router to either enable it, or not, and if you do (recommended) then write down your passphrase so that you can always remember it.

At this point, we are talking wireless, and if you are using wires, everything should already be functioning. With the wireless however, you will need to sit with your pc and tell the operating system to connect, then type in the security phrase when asked.

In XP, this is quite simple, by clicking on the wireless icon in the systray (down by the clock).

In Vista, however, you must first turn on network discovery. Right click on Networks, and choose properties. In the windows that opens, watch the information bar at the top, which should actually tell you network discover is not on, and to turn it on, click here.

Once the discovery is turned on, assuming that everything on your pc is functioning properly, you should see the network in the window, and be offered a chance to click on it to connect. Then type in your security phrase to connect to the LAN.

There is a lot going on with networks, and it is very difficult to help you set one up without a back and forth dialogue. I hope I helped you some.

good luck.

Wireless working very slow


Check that your network is secured with a key, unsecured networks are easily hacked and can get very slow.

My laptop would not connect to wireless while I was away in a hotel


Open up you're network connections in you're notebook & run the wireless wizard. Search for you're home wireless network.
You should be able to connect to you're home. Remove any other networks you might find. While you're at it I suggest you setup security for you're home network with a password.

Let me know how it goes.

WIFi Connection


change channels to 1-6-or 11

check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection1.gif Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones1.gif and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.
