Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Must reboot to connect to internet

When I turn my computer on in the morning I am unable to connect to the internet without shutting down and rebooting the machine. Details of my setup are:

HP Pavilion HDX 9000 Notebook PC
Windows Vista Home Premium
Internet Explorer Version 7
Comcast Broadband (hardwired)

I have made sure it is NOT a Comcast problem. The modem is working normally.

Anyone know how to solve the problem? I'd be most grateful. Thanks.

    Answer is lame and completely unresponsive. Is this simply ploy to get you to spend $10 with "FixYa" to get a REAL answer? If so, it's a disingenuous and disgusting marketing scam.

It Happens sometime because Machine does not pass information properly so we need to restart our system to reset all settings again.
and Vista still has many bugs on it so these cases are normal until next version release.

Thank you,

    Thanks a lot for posting back and what i would like you to inform is,

    if some one wants to get complete helps then you must provide problems indetails.

    and you have not mention about your main bug of connection.

    such as, what message used to be appeared whe trying to connect?

    did you ever try to ping your server?

    was your cable connected properly?

    and only these are the first questions.

    and be sure no one can provide complete solution without getting proper information of problem.

    and be advised there is nothign free in the world.

    once again thanks for posting your problem in FixYa.

Screen says to reboot, have no reboot device,unable to doanything to this computer, only 2 years old.have called my internet co.andmicrosoft. they tell me computer is atfault. please help

Gateway is responsible for any hardware issues with your computer. Neither the internet service provider nor the operating system manufacturer has anything to do with the hardware. Your Gateway has a power on button on its case. You may have to hold the button in for several seconds to shut it down but as you have not accessed the OS, that won't harm the hard drive. Once it's shut down, repress the power button to turn it back on and hopefully it will power up completely to the Windows or Linux OS you are using.

Always include the version of Windows in your posts.
Could have been a RAM problem if you got 4 beeps and you seem to have resolved that by reseating the modules. But the RAM error may have caused some corruption to a file on the hard drive.
Assuming the diagnostics pass, you can reboot and press F8 before Windows starts to load. Select Last Known Good. If that gets you to the desktop without errors, shut down normally and reboot normally, and you should be good to go.
You may also want to run chkdsk on the hard drive:
Click: Start>run
Type in: chkdsk C:
Click OK
Accept the offer to run chkdsk at next boot and then reboot. chkdsk will run before Windows loads. It may take a long time, depending on size of your hard drive, so be patient.

Hello. My acer aspire 4820tg laptop is unable to start up. When i turn it on, it says that windows is unable to load, and gives me the option to try and repair it. When either doing that or attempting to...

I suggest to reinstall the OS. During the installation process, format the existing system drive/partition/volume and install the OS again. This will fix any software problems or corrupt files. If there are hardware issues, you'l know that when you reboot the machine to log into your account.

I shut my computer down at night, but can't get on Internet next

There is no reason to shut down either the router or modem. My router and modem has power 24/7 with no issues for many years. Just leave them powered.

Router Suddenly stopped working...?

try power cycling your network (turn off all of the hardware)
First turn off the computer,
second, the router;
lastly the router (wgr614).

Now, turn the hardware in this order:
  1. Turn on Modem. Wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on Router (wgr614). wait 1 minute.
  3. Now turn on the Computer(s).
this should refresh your internet connection. If not, check your routers settings for any wrong info.
to access your router's homepage, type this ( into Internet Explorer.
