  • I have a problem with the wireless network card.


    I use a laptop Medion MIM 2210 and I have a problem with my wireless network adapter.

    I get a message before Windows 7 starts telling me that there is problem with a wireless driver. The exact message says:

    "Intel UNDI, PXE - Z.0 (build 082)

    Copyright (C) 1997,1998,1999 Intel Corporation

    VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter v2.43 (2005/12/15)

    PXE - E61: Media test failure, check cable of

    "PXE - MOF: exit Inel PXE ROM.

    This message appears every time you start and I don't know what he means by "Media Test Failure".

    I turned on my laptop today and noticed I had no internet connection, it showed that it connected but with yellow '!' symbol indicating that it was not fully connected. He did this for a while now and I have reinstalled Windows, in safe mode and I tried to delete the drivers and re - install, but it hangs right on uninstall what makes me angry no the case.

    Of course now, I tried to look for help my internet connection is running but the message is still there. Can someone tell me what to do or how to solve this problem, I am standing now on what to do. I was also on the drivers Medion website but it is impossible to navigate around and drivers without end there'e to choose. I would consider ringing them and asking them if they were not located in Germany as it would cost me a bomb! I did just now searching online via the Device Manager to see if he can find an update for the drivers but nothing came.

    Thanks for any help that anyone can offer :)

    The message is to be cause the BIOS looking for boot from LAN (not wireless) before it starts and then from the hard drive. The Media test failure is because to boot from LAN it tests to see if the wired Ethernet is connected, it is not if it generates the error message.

    Enter the BIOS press F2 after initial power on but before the Logo Windows shows

    Integrated devices should allow you to set the settings of wired network adapter. According to the BIOS it is either "enabled with PXE" or have another option to enable or disable the boot ROM

    In the boot options the LAN card should be removed altogether.

    This message is ONLY applicable to the transfer of the BIOS boot process and should have no impact on the problems of WiFi (it is not on WiFi)

  • Error message "A problem with the cooling system" on Satellite A660

    Hi all

    Hope I can get help here. I got about 5 laptop computers HP after each of them had problems and errors. I got sick of them and so got a refund and bought a high spec A660-1FH.

    The A660 is a great laptop for two days until yesterday when I started having a saying of warning message "a problem with the cooling system has been detected. Please turn off the power immediately and return it for service "."

    The cpu fan works fine you can here it turns and the temperature of the processor i5 - 460 m is around 40 degrees for two hearts - that seems normal to me. I noticed that this happens only when running on battery, and if you switch from eco utility to the power saving mode. Its fine when running on the "balanced" power setting The fan is louder before when this message appears.

    Like its less than 28 days my retailer swapped it for a brand new immediately. Got a new home page, and the same message reappears. Everyone knows this. Like two laptops had this, I was wondering if it is normal that the laptop A660 series or if it was really a hardware problem?

    I tried to update the eco utility and the bios of the laptop, but the two are the latest versions. Can someone help or share if they have a similar problem with their laptop?

    Thank you

    In front of me, I have Satellite A660-13 q (PSAW3E) and I have about 6 weeks now. It works almost 10 hours a day and so far I didn't notice this message or anything that may be suspect for the operation of the equipment.

    I put really know why this happen on your laptop and don t think that there is nothing you can do about it.
    I would trade it again. What you can also try is to contact the closest service Toshiba. Make a call, explain the situation and ask if they can help you with this.

  • Wusb54g v2 - problem with Linksys Wireless Network Monitor Software

    I have a card Linksys USB wireless (WUSB54Gv2) that is currently used with an old HP Desktop running Windows XP Service Pack 3.

    I also have a Linksys Wireless PCI Adpater (WMP54Gv4.1) that is currently used with an old Dell desktop running Windows XP.

    I have a wired and wireless home network... My broadband provider is Verizon FIOS; I use their supplied router because the coaxial cable that provides the internet connection plugs only into their wireless router, not in a modem and a router. I have an encryption key for 128-bit WEP on the side of the network wireless; It is even once managed via the Verizon FIOS router via a web browser (like most routers).

    Two other computers I own are a desk custom-made to date with a direct link to the Verizon router and a laptop from Apple. These two computers are NOT having internet connectivity problems.

    I've updated to the latest drivers for my USB adapter and the car PCI.


    Here's my problem:

    When I try to connect to the internet using the Wireless Network Monitor software provided by Linksys, computers, I can connect to the "access point", but not internet. This product only when I don't have the key WEP 128 bits in place, when security is disabled.

    If I right click on the Wireless Network Monitor icon in the taskbar and select "Use Windows XP Wireless Configuration", enter my network through windows manually information (including the WEP key), I can connect to the internet perfectly.

    However, when I restart or stop two PC, the Linksys Wireless Network Monitor reactive software itself, where it automatically attempts to connect to the internet, but fails, after which I right click on the icon of the monitor again and select «Use Windows XP...» "and then I connect to the internet.

    Is anyway to disable the Linksys continuously monitor software WITHOUT uninstalling the software or drivers? (I tried this; Windows cannot use or recognize the network adapter).


    I might just re - activate the Setup Wireless Windows XP every time I close / restart, but other users of PCs on my network (my family) are exceptionally illiterate computer/network and would not be able to learn how to do whenever they want to connect. There is very little practice.

    If there is a way to solve this situation, please help! If all goes well there are other solutions I am open to suggestions.

    I must emphasize that our Apple laptop connects fine when the WEP key is set.

    Once more, looking for quick help!

    Thank you advance!

    Remove the Linksys adapter and uninstall the Linksys software menu programs... Re - install drivers insert the CD of Linksys install in your CD-ROM drive, when the welcome is displayed click on exit, connect your USB adapter now... When the Hardware Update Wizard window appears, click on install the software automatically (recommended) and then click Next... Click Finish when the installation is complete.

    NOTE: The hardware installation screen may appear indicating that the adapter has failed the Windows Logo test. Ignore the window and click on continue to continue the installation because the adapter has been tested and it works with Windows XP. When Windows has finished installing the driver, click Finish.

    Click Start and open the control panel and double-click on network connections. Right click on wireless network connection, and then select view available wireless networks "-If you see your network wireless in the list, the highlight by clicking 'single' on it now, click on the 'Connect' button below-if your wireless network is secured, it asks you to provide the network key - provide the wireless network key and confirm again in the confirmation box and click 'Connect'." It should work...

    Your article made a walkthrough basic troubleshooting, ending with the question if the print head is repairable. Because it is not on the 6700, the article isn't really the problem.

    Here is the solution I found to this problem:
    I discovered that eliminating all ink cartridges allows the printer at startup (although there is a message saying the missing print cartridges).
    Putting the cartridges in a binary regression revealed that the ink has been bad. (In my case, I only got the message of failure/printer ink when the yellow cartridge was in the printer).
    Replacement of the restored cartridge the printer functionality.
    That's the good news.
    Now the bad news: for HP.
    The generic error message indicates a failure with the printer or the ink system. No differentiation. With the electronics in the cartridges (that the client pays a high price for), looks that HP could not understand how to indicate a cartridge problem. This error message is not only unnecessary, but misleading. The printer indicates only a power reset and then contact HP. There is no indication that he might be a cartridge problem, not to mention what cartridge has failed. By the way, my customer encountered this problem when you replace the color cartridges. The cartridge failed was a new replacement.
    All of the web enabled features, fax, scanning features, print included with this printer are not very useful if the user can't get the dang thing to print.
    Another problem with this printer, is that, even when you only print in b & W, the printer uses little color (ostensibly make Blacks more "BOLD"). Then, finally, a color cartridge will go low or empty, even if only B & W printing. And guess what, you can't continue to print n & B if one of the color cartridges are out of ink. Thus, HP... How is this useful printer in an office environment, where most print tends to be B & W?

    (I would add; the solution in the message of failure/printer ink cartridge cannot fix your problem if, in fact, there are a few default printer. But if the problem is in the ink system, then the troubleshooting cartridge can help you).
    I have posted similar comments on Amazon, for this printer, in the subject line: shame on you, HP.


    I have an Acer Aspire 5552-3691 with Atheros AR5B97 wireless adapter. It shows that I have an internet connection, but I have to constantly run network diagnostics it resets then the wireless network adapter and which solves the problem. However, the fix is only short it can last 2 minutes or if I'm lucky 15 but nevertheless it continues to occur. Help, please

    If you have done all the troubleshooting steps, and the error is still present, the printer has developed an internal material condition.  If you are still in warranty, HP can replace the printer without cost to you.

    Wheeee. That's good news. Yes, open a new NTSC > DV project and import the AVI file. It has to import without a red line on the Timeline. If there is a red line on the timeline, it means that your preset is wrong, or that the conversion to DV somehow missed.

    DV is format of native PRE8 Setup for Standard definition projects, so you should be able to change with ease. If the crash continues then there must be another mistake not associated with images.
