  • Wireless adapter fails - then the computer crashes.

    I've had this problem for a few days now. Basically, the problem is that my computer freezes completely and it becomes unresponsive at random times. It happened while I watch videos, play games or surf the internet, even while I'm on the login screen.

    I have recently noticed that just before the accident, strange things happen that seem to be centered around the wireless adapter. I'm not going to load a Web page, so I'll check the icon wireless and see that I'm connected to the network, but not internet. And then, as I try to disable and re-enable the adapter, the computer will crash.

    I just downloaded the drivers from the adapter and install them, but that has not changed anything.

    Anyone know what could cause this weird problem?

    Thank you.


    Just happened twice again. Failed loading of Web pages, and who warned me that something was up. I unplugged the adapter, the operation aboard as usual for a while, but the computer does not save the adapter has been unplugged and continued to try to load web pages for a few moments, before it crashes.

    The first time, he had a BSOD, but he flashed to the top for a while before the computer restarted itself.

    Adapter is TL-WN722N

  • How to set the resolution of the Viewsonic VX2235wm monitor with Pavilion a420n desktop computer?

    1 HP Pavilion A420N

    2 Win XP

    3 Control Panel-> display, does not have the optimal screen resolution, 1680 x 1050 at 60 Hz. The selections available only for a lower resolution without the proportions appropriate for this monitor and the screen image is severely distorted.

    4. installed latest version of the BIOS, video drivers, drivers latest installed monitor, the monitor is a Viewsonic VX2235WM

    Can someone help me out?

    Thank you

    Here are the specifications of your HP a420n desktop and its card mother A7V8X - LA Kamet2-GL6E. The edge VIA Unichrome graphics adapter is old and does not support the extensions on the big screen. 800 x 600, 1024 x 768 and 1280 x 1024 resolutions are more likely that will support the computer, which are all the 4:3 aspect ratios. Based on the above specifications, I would say that after buying and installing a AGP 8 X / 4 X (1.5V) graphics card, your system must manage a 16:10 ratio width / Monitor wide screen without problem.


  • How to make the computer to recognize that there are 2 monitors?

    I have a new hp pavilion hpe h8-1124 with AMD Radeon HD 6570 GPU.  It does not have a VGA port, so I used the adapter supplied in the box HP (DVI / VGA).  To get to two monitors, I used a VGA 2 VGA splitter 'Y '.  Both monitors turn on and show the desktop, but when I use the Windows screen resolution (7 professionals), to stretch my office, the choice of two screens are not present.  Using the button detection detects only a single monitor which is names @.  Using 'Identify' places '1' in each monitor.  When that I start with a single monitor, "detect" correctly identifies appointed monitors.

    How can I get the computer to recognize the fact that there are two different monitors?  If I can't do this, I can't do the rest of what I need to stretch the desktop on two monitors.


    Get rid of the VGA splitter.  You have noticed it doesn't work for the Office of 'cloning', but do not stretch across two monitors.

    What are the other ports on the video card?  without doubt, DVI, HDMI, and VGA if this is correct, then one of then one of the monitors must use DVI - D or HDMI if you want to continue to use the VGA for the other monitor.

  • When my monitor goes to sleep I can't wake him up by clicking on the mouse. I have to restart the computer to see the monitor

    When my monitor goes to sleep I can't wake him up by clicking on the mouse. I have to restart the computer to be able to see the screen.  I tried all turned on and on the screen but when I do it says monitor going to sleep

    I assume you are using a desktop computer you are referring to the monitor going to sleep rather than the course of PC to sleep.

    1 check the monitor power management & the display adapter in Control Panel, Manager of peripheral and during that control you the mouse power management and make sure that it is likely to be used for anything wake up.

    2 in case of failure, then check the monitor & display settings of the adapter to control panel, display.

    3 check manual site or the monitor stand, so the settings recommended.

    4 then check the settings of the Control Panel, power options, change plan settings change advanced power settings.  In particular, if it is a USB mouse, you may disable settings settings USB, USB selective suspend setting.

  • Tecra A9 - external monitor shows scratches during the use of the computer laptop pluged.


    I heard at least Tecras A9 product witch scratches on the external display only 3 when the laptop is pluged. When you use the laptop with the battery, the monitor works fine. they tried to divide the monitor and power cables as far as possible, but still the same problem. When you use the laptop with a non-toshiba-AC adapter, the external monitor works fine.


    In my opinion, you should visit the nearest Toshiba authorized service provider. They can plug in your Tecra external monitors and test. If the result is the same, I am sure that you will get free AC adapter replacement.

    Do not wait and discuss the days here. Contact with them and I hope they help you.

      1 unpack the monitor. With mobile connection cables on: HDMI, USB, power Turn on the monitor. It flashes. Black for about 2 seconds, then the light for a split second, repeat, ongoing. Turn off monitor, the driver of the CD W2207h monitor, restart. Monitor works normally.

      Occasionally, flashing monitor heal without rebooting. Out of about 10-15 tent: once the monitor began to function properly while the computer shuts down. Once the monitor was OK on the reactivation of the laptop. Once, while the screen flashes, I removed the USB cable and the monitor started working. None of this is repeatable.

      3 removed the HDMI cable and started using the VGA cable and an audio cable. No more flashing on the reactivation of the computer. Very repeatable. About 7 7 times.

    It was the monitor! I brought my laptop and a HDMI cable at Staples where I bought the monitor and tried on the w2207h on set. It has worked well.

    I suggest you to check the physical connection that is connected to your computer?
    I suggest you to follow the steps and check.

    No input Signal message.


    This problem may be caused by one of the options below.

    1. Monitor not connected correctly.
    2. Faulty hardware


    Monitor not connected correctly

    Verify that the monitor is connected to the back of the screen, as well as the back of the computer.

    If the monitor seems to be connected correctly, check that a cable is not loose by disconnecting any cables that may be disconnected at the back of the screen (usually the data cable cannot be disconnected). Then unplug the data cable connected to the back of the computer, and then reconnect the cable. By connecting the cable to the back of the computer, ensure that the cable connection is strained. Most computers will also have the ends of screws that can be screwed to keep the connector in place.

    Faulty hardware

    If the connections look OK, unfortunately it is likely that the monitor or the computer graphics card is bad. To test this component is bad, either connect a different monitor to your computer or connect your monitor to another computer.
