Question about Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747 Notebook
I keep getting "there was a problem sending the command to the program" when I try to open an MS Office file or just a picture to be viewed in the windows picture thing. After the first time trying to open a file, I can open any file fine for a while, but the error tends to occur after a reboot and during the first time running the program(Word/Excel/etc.) Strangely, this does not happen consistently. Sometimes the error pops up, sometimes it doesn't. I've already reinstalled Office 07 to no avail, and I am running 7 Pro 64bit. Thanks for your help

Okay it sounds like you need to reinstall windows. However, doing so will erase everything on your hard drive. So we need to get that data off your hard drive. You can do this either by purchasing an internal hard drive to usb cable and hooking it up to another computer or by booting with a bootable linux distro, connecting a flash drive and copying the info over that way. Once you have the data safe, you can try booting from your XP disc and try the repair option; this will remove the windows files and leave your data in tact but you should really back it up first.
Also you may want to run a chkdsk on the drive; that may help solve the problem.

SOURCE: Keep losing internet connection
Recommendation: If you can switch from the 3rd party wireless utility to the Windows utility. There should be a check box under the properties that says, "Let Windows manage my connection." Also turn off any power management that stops your drives, suspends the machine, etc. When doing WEP, use the actual key, not your password. i.e. the one that looks like "aaff996753bc" not "rosebud".
Reason: Windows wireless starts before you even log in and loads as a service, it runs whether your logged in or not, sleep mode, etc. 3rd party utilities...especially my personal bane of all wireless devices "Netgear" load as applications. That means they don't initialize until after log in and they can be suspended completely or prioritized by power management and resource management utilities when the machine is idle. As for the key thing... WEP translation with Linksys especially can be a little funny with some wireless so I use the key itself which always works.

barb, I have an A75 satellite and have similar problems. I have upgraded ram (corsair 2G) and also new hard drive now running XP pro. From what I have observed, the computer runs without problems anytime I use an external keyboard & mouse and freezes if I do not. While it doesn't freeze every time, it does it regularly, somewhere around 10% of the time. I have done the following; used it while wearing different footwear, shoes, tennis shoes, socks etc and noticed it freezes when I wear either tennis shoes or acrylic / nylon socks, it does NOT freeze when I am barefoot or have good shoes on, or when I use it on hard floors off of carpeted areas. I am certain my problem is related to static discharge and a poorly grounded front cover as the unit locks up the instant I rest my wrist on the front to start typing etc. This is a fairly well known problem with the satellite series and there are a number of fixes ranging from having the inside of the cover modified to be better grounded all the way up to replacing the cover with a newer type which apparently addresses the issue. Good luck.

You will have to reinstall both its BIOS and operating system, only that can properly solve the problem.

First off, try running disk cleanup to clear your temp files and browser cache. That may help.
If you check your network connection when this error occurs, and it is connected, this could be a sign of what's called a browser hijack, a sort of malware infection. There are some things that install on your system and prevent you from accessing sites that they deem harmful (to themselves)..
For example, can you go to windows update and update your system? Is your antivirus updating successfully?
If not, I recommend you go to www.malwarebytes.com and download their free Anti-malware software, update it and run a scan of your system. Allow it to fix anything it detects.
It will automatically save a logfile.
Then run a full scan of your system with an updated AntiVirus scanner.
You might wish to consult this link as well, if you have any further problems...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
