Cannot use any USB device after the upgrade from XP.

Hi, I guess that's an old problem, just my computer from MESH 6 to upgrade to Windows 7, Upgrade Advisor said that there was no problems. Now, I can't use any usb device and the mouse either. Tried evertything and am frustrated. IN XP, there is no problem at all. It must be a Windows 7 thing

Windows 7 handles USB devices very well.

Please describe your problem in more detail. Tell us what means "cannot use any usb device and the mouse either. Exactly how do you try? What happens when you try? If you get an error message, please quote verbatim.

  • Cannot use/register LR 6 after the upgrade to Windows 10

    Good evening

    Using Lightroom 6 DESKTOP application (no CC or clouds) on Windows 10.

    I upgraded my Windows 7 to Windows 10.

    I did not have to 'turn off' my computer before proceeding with the installation,

    Now, I try to reinstall Lightroom 6 and I get the message:

    "The xxxxxxx serial number is already in use by the maximum allowed value of computer.

    You must disable another computer or provide a different serial number... "

    I can not find on the Adobe web site where I can disable or reactivate my LR6 serial number to use on Windows 10.

    6 of Lightroom is already installed and enabled on my Mac Book Air (and works); As far as I KNOW, I can use the same serial number on my Mac laptop and my Windows desktop computer.

    Where should I go to the adobe web site to see which computer are enabled so that I can clean that?

    Thank you

    I would like to try the steps in this guide, "offline" Status Message printer (Windows 10).

    If the problem persists, you may encounter an IP address conflict. It's a good idea to assign the printer a static IP address outside your DHCP range. For example, some routers default DHCP is located between to So, I would use

    • Print a Page of Network Configuration menu of the printer front panel. Note: the IPV4 IP.
    • Type the IP address in the browser to bring up the SAP.
    • Choose the network tab, then wireless on the left side, and then select the IPv4 tab.
    • Select Manual IP.
    • Enter your IP address manual (
    • Enter for the subnet mask, except if it is different.
    • Enter the IP address of your router that sits on the Network Configuration Page) for the default gateway.
    • Please, click on manual DNS server. For the preferred DNS Server Manual please enter and the Alternate DNS Server Manual, please enter
    • Click on apply.

    Please restart the router, the printer and the computer in this sequence.

    If you're still having problems, please download and run the print and Scan doctor, it will be probably diagnose and fix the problem you are experiencing.

    What were the results when you ran the Print and Scan Doctor? (she print or scan, error messages)

  • Cannot create a PDF file after the upgrades: Adobe 9.2 and Mac OS 10.6.2

    After the upgrade to Adobe Professional 9.2 and Mac 10.6.2 I lost the ability to create PDF files.

    The printer Adobe (display says that the printer is v. 9.0) indicates the status of the job as "Mistake" and has the following message; "You must install the software to use this printer. To install the software, choose software update from the Apple menu. If the software for your printer is not available in software update, contact the manufacturer of your printer. »

    I get errors when I try to create a PDF from a Web page.

    I get the following error when I try to create a pdf from a word file: "Acrobat cannot open 'AAA.docx' because it is not a type of supported file or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an attachment to e-mail and has not been correctly decoded).

    To create an Adobe PDF document, go to the source application. Then print the document in Adobe PDF format".

    (I can create a PDF from jpg files... but I never really have a need to do this...)

    I uninstalled Adobe Professional by using the uninstall program (then emptied the trash and restart), then reinstalled Adobe Professional from disk (and restarted).  After the reinstallation, I always get the same problems, even if I get no error message until Adobe Professional updates from 9.0 to 9.2.  Before the upgrade Adobe, v9.0 attempts to print to pdf just act as the pdf is created (no error message), but I do not get a backup fast, nor is a new pdf no matter where the document is located.

    Help, please!

    With OSX.6.x, the possibility of using the Adobe PDF printer has been lost. See the ad at the top of this forum (known issues with Snow Leopard).

  • After the upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 games installed in my laptop (Chainz, Cubis and Bejeweled, etc.) have bars on each side when displayed in full screen.

    I have a laptop Acer Aspire with a screen 16:9 wide (15.6 "), it has the latest graphic drivers ATI and all operating system updates.  After the upgrade to W7 (free upgrade with the purchase of the laptop) everything works wonderfully except all the games installed now not displayed in full screen, I get black bars on both sides, they used for Vista, but not with W7.

    I already tried different settings in the games options, administrator, resolutions screen different, being run in maximized 'Vista' and 'Run' mode of the file properties dialog box shortcut and .exe.  This happened without any security program installed that is not a factor.

    I am at a loss.

    This is to maintain the ratio l / h. It is how the images stretch. ATI no longer has the opportunity to play with the proportions for the sort of stuck like that unless you can find in your version of ATI Catalyst. It is in fact full screen as opposed to windowed mode, but it does not cover the entire screen.

    You can try different resolutions within the application to see if it will actually make your apps full screen to use the entire screen. That's all, remains to be done. I don't know why ATI has decided to exclude this option because some people hate the black bars or hate the stretched images.

  • vCenter Storage Monitoring Service Service initialization failed after the upgrade from 5.1 to 5.5

    I recently upgraded from vCenter 5.1 to 5.5. After the upgrade, I started getting health warnings for the VMware vCenter monitoring of Storage Service that say "failed to initialize the Service." I restarted the vCenter server and restart services several times and who has not deleted the question. When I look in the SMS. LOG file there is no activity in it since I did the upgrade (a week or more there). All prior activity in the SMS. JOURNAL seems to be well upward until the upgrade took place though. I found at least half a dozen KB articles that describe the various reasons why this error may occur, but they all relate to older versions of vCenter. Just to be complete, although I saw the symptoms in the articles and none of them really seem to be the same as what I see. My hypothesis is that perhaps the SMS did not get properly re-installed upgrading because I don't see any SMS subdirectory in the directory \Program Files\VMware\Infrastructure\tomcat\webapps but I do not know if this directory must exist on a 5.5 installation.

    If you would be grateful if anyone has any advice for troubleshooting for this type of error.

  • Pavilion 14-ab051tx N4G24PA: unable to connect to any wireless network after the upgrade to Windows 10

    I recently bought a 14-ab-51tx Pavilion N4G24PA, this is my first laptop from HP, it comes with Windows already installed 8.1 and it worked fine.

    The thing is, I kind of get used to using Windows 10 on my previous laptop, so without further hesitation I upgraded to 64-bit Windows 10.

    Here's what I did wrong:

    Instead of update Windows 8.1 for Windows 10, I indeliberately he installed fresh, with couple of mouse clicks, I didn't realize that I also remove the recovery partition.

    I realized only after the installation process is complete, but then it was too late. I look forward to using my laptop with Windows 10 freshly installed inside to make some games just noticed that I couldn't connect to any network without wire, House or public. It recognizes my wifi at home, but the signal bar is bizarre, there is only 1 bar of signal even if the wireless router is only about 10 feet from him, so I checked my other computers and smartphones, but the signal on them is ridiculously high (full bar), it also detects another wireless network that are further away than my wireless router.

    But back to my HP laptop, I tried to connect to my home network despite the signal bar with the right entry security key, but it does not connect, it says "Cannot connect to the network".

    Tried updating drivers with HP Support Assistant and no luck, the problem persists, tried all the solution on the internet, int ip reset, reset winsock, checking and unchecking, always without success.

    Can someone help me please...

  • Update of the "couldn't find any output device" after the Sierra

    I've updated my iMac (model 14.2) of OS X El Capitan with macOS Sierra yesterday. The update went smoothly except that once the complete update, the Office and I logged the volume in the menu bar icon is grayed out. I immediately opened settings, assuming that the update had deselected somehow my default audio output device (a pair of external speakers, in this case). But when I went on the audio menu, I was surprised to see "not found any output device.

    I have looked around a bit and have not yet found anyone else with this problem. I became so desperate to get my audio that I even tried installing 3rd party 'Voodoo' audio driver, but it gave me the option for "Digital out (HDMI)" which is of no use to me, I have the mac connected to a TV via a VGA adapter and it does not have a HDMI adapter. One thing it stated however is that somehow during my got deleted and never replaced Applehda driver upgrade, or install a driver on 3rd wouldn't have added of output devices to list (albeit dimmed those outside and totally dysfunctional). So at this point, that I am at a loss, I know not how to replace the driver, where or how I would install it so any help is greatly appreciated. Danke!

    Hi Alison E.C..

    Thanks for the upgrade to Mac OS Sierra! I see that you have lost your audio output device once you upgrade. No worries. Great way to try to get your audio works using another audio driver. Given that this has not solved the problem, please try to reset the NVRAM.

    What is NVRAM?

    A small amount of memory on your computer called "non-volatile random - access memory" or NVRAM, stores certain settings in a location that OS X can access quickly. Settings that are stored in NVRAM are dependent on the type of Mac you use and the types of devices on it.
    Information stored in the NVRAM may include:
    The speaker volume
    Screen resolution
    Selection of boot drive
    These latest panic the kernel, if applicable
    If you encounter problems with these features, you may need to reset the NVRAM on your computer. For example, if your Mac starts up from a bootdisk other than that specified in startup disk preferences, or a question mark icon appears briefly at the start of your Mac.

    How to reset the NVRAM on your Mac.

    This should have your internal audio device showing as it should be under your settings in the system preferences. Please use the Apple Support communities to post your question.

    Have a great day.

  • Use of data cell after the upgrade to iOS 10.0.2 has increased dramatically


    I noticed a HUGE increase in mobile data usage by my phone (iPhone 6s) after the iOS to 10.0.2 update.    I had not changed anything since before the update.  A few days after my phone iOS update my more than double to 15 days prior to the cell data update!   I went under a GB to 2.2 GB for two days.  I am only allowed 2.5 GB of my company.   Assist of WiFi was interrupted. I am connected to a wifi most of the time, all day at the office and at home in the morning and in the evening.  I haven't changed my phone usage habits nor have I down loaded new applications.   I also did all the stuff reset once I downloaded the update as turning on and off, hold down home and appears on the sides until that little Apple.

    I looked in the cell parameters section and noticed a few things that consume more data:

    Facebook: I had disabled cell Facebook use.   However, there was a large amount of data used. I also, by habit, only check Facebook when I'm at a known wifi spot as the House or the office.   It was less than a MB before and near a GB of data in 2 days.

    YouTube: Idem, had turned off cell phones and only look at the House.

    Maps - never used but the use of data.

    e-mail-HUGE amount of data used.  Normal use for me. in the past, the amount of data has been a MB.  Now it's 65 MG in 2 days,

    Siri - I do not use Siri as in "Hey Siri" or by using voice commands.  I use it from time to time to the voice on texts.

    AccuWeather.  Even.

    It's just as much as the apps that I use, the rest is electronic mail and stuff systems.   I uninstalled nearly all applications except for the few that I need as my ticket train and planning aps and mail want to stop this.   I won't send any imessages anymore.

    Quite an experience of something like that?

    Yes! I have iPhone 6 - after that the update almost all my data is gone for the month! I do not have Wifi Assist on and I only use data when I'm home and can connect to Wifi!

    I see my iPhone to connect to my Wifi then bounce to the cellular network. I have no problem with my home wifi network. This problem also occurs in the work. In addition, the network at work requires the password to the network - I type in iPhone tells me it's the wrong password, and then it connects. Then it disconnects after 2 minutes.

    I tried to reset the Wifi feature. Help!
