Dear sir, Please disable automatic updates in your windows settings, it will slow your connection speed. I have seen that your connection speed is slow, i.e. updates are not possible online.

How to access internet


hello there!

To connect to the internet follow the following steps:
  1. While in standby mode, press the OK button to connect to the internet

To disconnect from the internet:

  1. While in standby mode, press the Red end call button
  2. Press the left soft key for Yes to confirm Exiting the Web Browser

Please consult with your service provider for all other inquiries regarding the Mobile Web on the SGH-D900 handset.


Please make sure that you have a DATA PLAN from your provider or the set up for your GPRS settings.

For more information, The SGH-D900 uses PC Studio software for connectivity between your phone and a desktop computer. PC Studio is a Windows-based PC program used to easily manage personal data and multimedia files.


System Requirements:

The system requirements for Samsung PC Studio are as follows.

  • Windows 2000 or XP family
  • At least 300MB of free disk space
  • Interface devices such as USB, IrDA, and Bluetooth for the connection with the Phone

After installation, launch PC Studio 3.0. Be sure to have an active internet connection at the initial launch, as Live Update will automatically search for the most current version of the application and promptly install before use.

You can also update your Samsung PC Studio to the latest version manually.

Live Update can be performed as follows.


Run Samsung PC Studio. In the Launcher window, select the Tools > Live Update menu. (Make sure the PC is connected to the internet.)

  1. When the Welcome window appears, click the Start button.
  2. The available program update list appears. Click the Next button.
  3. Save all unsaved tasks and close all PC Studio applications. Click the OK button to proceed to the update process.
  4. When the update is done, click the Finish button to close Live Update. (In case the Live Update program itself has been updated, click the Start button to repeat steps 3 to 5 for updating other components.)
Hope it helps,
fossildude

ERROR 80072EFE IS NOY ALLOW TO UPDATE WINDOW 7


I understand you receive an error message 0x80072EFE when trying to installing update from the Windows Update website. This kind of issue may be caused by hardware/software firewalls or proxy server or Windows category files are corrupted. Let’s try the following steps to resolve this issue.

Step 1: Check background programs.
=======================
Disable firewalls or other Internet browser programs that can affect the Internet connection. The following programs can affect the connection to the Windows Update site and I suggest you remove or disable them:

McAfee firewall
Norton Internet Security
Zone Alarm Firewall
Panda firewall


Step 2: Delete the CatRoot2 folder
=======================
A: Stop Cryptographic Services:

1. Click Start, click Run, type in "SERVICES.MSC" and press Enter.
2. Double click Cryptographic Services, and then click Stop (if it has been started).

B: After stopping Cryptographic Service, please delete the "Catroot2" folder:

1. Locate the "C:\Windows\System32\" folder.
2. Delete the Catroot2 subfolder in System32.

Note: I am assuming your Windows Vista is installed in C:\Windows.

C: Re-start Cryptographic Services:

1. Click Start, click Run, type in "SERVICES.MSC" and press Enter.
2. Double click Cryptographic Services, and then click Start.

After performing the above steps, please visit the Windows Update website and check the available update.

Hope this helps.

Cant play sound it keeps asking for multimedia audio controller when i install audio driver it states RPC Server not found


It sounds like you have the wrong driver installed or there are more drivers that you need to install and update.

One way to ensure that you install the correct drivers is to go through the Device Manager and update your driver.

This is for a Windows XP system

To Update your drivers through Device Manager, pls do the following:

1. Attach your computer to the internet, make sure you can get on the internet by launching your browser, ie. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari
2. Navigate to Start/Control Panel, System
3. Choose the Hardware Tab and click Device Manager
4. See if there are yellow exclamation marks or question marks listed
5. Select them and right click on each one (you have to do this one by one until you see no more yellow exclamation marks or question marks)
6. Choose Update Driver
7. Follow the prompts to complete (usually by clicking ok to all the prompts)

This is for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 system
1. Connect your computer to the internet and ensure that you have internet connection by launching your browser and surfing to your favorite website.
2. Navigate Start/Control Panel/System
3. On the top left hand corner, click Device Manager
4. Do the same from 5-7 under the Windows XP directions up above.

Again, remember that sometimes drivers are related to something else on the system. Therefore you may need to update one or more drivers. This is the only way to ensure that you get everything.

Let me know how it works out and please don't forget to rate me.

Cannot get out of Configurating updates: stage 3 of 3 screen


This is all I could find:


It's not only Windows Vista Service Pack 1 that isn't ready for general consumer availability. Some of the updates released on February 12, 2008, as a part of the Microsoft monthly patch cycle, have managed to effectively kill Windows Vista. Users are reporting that, following the introduction of the February 12 updates, Vista gets stuck at the finalization of the deployment of the updates displaying the message "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% completes" and then entering
an infinite reboot loop. And there is absolutely no way out for the end users, because canceling the configuration process of the updates is a move equivalent to losing access to the operating system entirely. This will even happen in Safe Mode.

Microsoft has yet to officially respond to the issue, or to provide a resolve or at least a workaround. However, it does seem at this point that there is an issue with the deployment of the pre-requisite updates necessary for the smooth installation of Windows Vista SP1. Namely, the problem resides in the Vista installation software. The fact of the matter is that end users will have to first update the Vista installation software and only then deploy the remaining February 12 updates and only at the end Vista SP1 RTM.

If you are stuck watching the "Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete Do not turn off Computer" and in the endless reboot loop, then stop the cycle and boot from the Vista media. You will need to "Repair your computer," so select your Vista installation and restore it to a point before the deployment of the updates. After gaining back access to your operating system, you will have to install the service stack update, namely Update for Windows Vista (KB937287). Deploy this update before any other on your Vista, and only then install the rest. At this point in time, you should experience no more problems.

"Update 937287 is a prerequisite package that contains updates to the Windows Vista installation software. The installation software is the component that handles the installation and the removal of software updates, language packs, optional Windows features, and service packs. Update 937287 is necessary to successfully install and to remove Windows Vista SP1 on all versions of Windows Vista," Microsoft revealed.

# Test your Internet connection to Windows Update.

A simple solution but one that works in many circumstances!

Test to determine if your Internet connection is preventing you from reaching the Windows Update Web site. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Windows Update Web site to determine if you can download the Iuident.cab file:

http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/v4/iuident.cab

If a file download dialog box appears, the problem is not with your Internet connection. Click Cancel. If you cannot connect to this link, and you receive a "Page Cannot Be Displayed" error message, your Internet connection is preventing you from reaching the Windows Update site.
