    Hi, I work with someone who has a range of printers hp 2035 connected to a desktop computer running windows vista. another person has a laptop running windows 7. It obviously takes the laptop home, and every morning when he connects to his computer laptop back to the network it can see the printer, but not to print on it. HOWEVER, it can print a test page, and after that, it is good to go, until his laptop computer goes idle, date to print a test page to print again to it.

    Looks like the computer is not automatically connect to the printer, but idk a permanent solution, guessing just a bit at the moment and it made the test page thing, but is a bit of waste paper right? any help would be appreciated.

  • Wireless network will not automatically connect at startup

    I have Windows 7 Professional.  Whenever I start, I have to click on the wireless icon & enter key code to connect to the net.  When I go to the Network & Sharing Center, active network shows.  When I go on manage wireless networks, active network are not.  When I try to add manually, I enter all the data, and then click Next, I get the notice that access is denied. I have admin rights.. Spoke people w/HP & router without result.  Just need to find the solution that will automatically connect to the internet to start without the need to enter the key code each time I start.  Would appreciate suggestions.

    Open research, open services of type "services.msc".
    Scroll down to "wlan auto config" right click, stop the service.

    "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\ Delete everything in this folder, leaving only a folder called 'profiles' delete everything in the folder"profiles"except for a folder called 'interfaces' delete all 'interfaces' file).

    Restart "wlan auto config" to connect to your wireless network, enter

  • Pavilion Elite HPE 450 t PC: desktop computer will not be updated for windows 7 64, Microsoft tried without success.

    I have a PC Pavilion Elite HPE 450 t, and a few months ago he ceased to accept automatic updates from Microsoft downloads.

    I tried to use the tools that Microsoft has nothing helped.

    Some time after, my Norton Security software security suite failed and wouldn't charge.  Norton failed to find a solution.  I guess it must do something with the heavy backlog of unloaded updates.

    ? Is it possible to load windows 10 on win 7?

    I got my PC tested for viruses, root kits and it is clean, but updates are still not loading.

    Honestly, I'd appreciate any help that you folk can provide.  Thanks in advance

    Hi there @LROSZKOW,

    I hope you find your experience of positive Support Forum! It's a good place to find the help you need, other users, the HP experts and other members of the support staff. I understand that you have had problems with the updates of Windows and want to know if you can upgrade to Windows 10. I'm happy to help you with this.

    Reading the questions you have described in your current system that you cannot upgrade to Windows 10, using the normal method of free upgrade. Your system should have the option available from a previous update of Windows, as the free update is delivered via Windows update. If you have a Windows 7 or 8.1 product key, then you could do a clean install of Windows 10 and use this key to activate your Windows 10 free documents. Of course, you want to first make a backup of your data.

    Another option would be to try to load the original image from the desktop computer, and then try to update again by using Windows Update. This assumes you have a working recovery partition or recovery media. Computers HP - performing a recovery of system HP (Windows 7)  But to protect your data, you want to make a first backup as I mentioned.

    Please let me know if it works for you and if it does not solve your problem, please mark this message as a solution. Bravo would be appreciated as well.

  • Using Vista, WiFi will not automatically connect after that reboot - config "connect automatically" will not save after reboot.

    Using my Lenovo with Vista laptop, the wireless re-does not after I stop/restart.

    I checked the "connect automatically when this network is in range" parameter in the configuration Wifi, but the box always becomes disabled after that I reload.  Why this configuration will not save after that I reload?

  • Laptop computer will not be connected to the internet.

    Never had a problem with my laptop (windows 8, toshiba) until today. It's only a couple of months. I tried to connect to two different WiFi my laptop disconnects and say that the network is 'limited' I have other devices connected and know the WiFi is fine. When I plug my laptop to charge it is fine and remains connected. This isn't usually the case. What can I do?


    Don't forget to update the drivers of network, as indicated below.

    Check with support of the system, their drivers and documentation online manufacturer and ask
    in their forums on known problems.

    References to Vista also apply to Windows 7 and Windows 8.

    Your router be guess here, you have successfully updated the firmware a possible
    solution? And I would update your WiFi drivers on computers. How far away are they
    you have set in the router? Are there obstacles in the path?

    Actually try updating your driver and disabling the network logon.

    Control Panel - network - write down of the brand and the model of the Wifi - double click
    top - tab of the driver - write version - click on update driver (can't do
    nothing that MS is far behind the certification of drivers). Then right click on the Wifi
    Device and UNINSTALL - Reboot - it will refresh the driver stack.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

  • Installed IE 8 on my vista laptop at home and now my Palm desktop computer will not open.

    The office that came with my palm Centro has worked well for a year. I installed IE8, now when I try to open the Palm desktop, that it does not open. I can hotsync via the USB port. Windwoes said there is a problem and it cannot open, but will want to know if there is a solution. Windwoes is not to find a. I tried to go back to a previous restore point, still nothing. I don't have bluetooth on my computer so new desktop 6.2 is not an option. Help please

    Hello geocostello and thank you for posting on the forums...

    You can reinstall the office 4.2 that accompanies your centro via the CD.  (if you have one yet...)  If not, you can go the palm.com and do a search for Desktop Manager 4.2 and download it, then install it.  This should not affect your data.  Before doing so, try to go into Add/Remove programs and uninstall from there Office Manager.  Then re-install the software.  Yet once, it should not affect your data.

    If the software does not uninstall from Add/Remove Programs, you can go to microsoft and download the Microsoft uninstall utility.  This should remove the software and registry entries and allow you to re - install the Desktop manager 4.2

    Let us know what happens...

    Thank you


  • Satellite L840 WiFi will not automatically connect at startup

    Just bought this Toshiba, my Toshiba second year (broke the screen on the last), and the WiFi connects automatically when I start the computer.

    My friendly "person tech" went through the installation over the phone, and we got it all running. After checking that everything was OK, I suggested a reboot to see if WiFi connected automatically, because there never on my previous Toshiba.

    Guess what - it doesn't work!
    Any ideas welcome, please.

    Which is really strange. If the Connect option is enabled automatically laptop should connect on some WLAN if the WIFI network is available. To your WLAN anyway?

    Can you connect to your WLAN anyway? Is IT card WLAN when you start your laptop?

  • My built-in webcam on my HP Pavilion TouchSmart desktop computer will not work on all programs, online or offline and will not display on my computer.

    My built-in webcam on my HP Pavilion TouchSmart desktop PC, product #: FK935AA-ABG, model #: IQ515a, does not work, that is to say, it does not appear on my computer as a work/usable/functional/real webcam. The green light next to the real webcam above the screen doesn't flash or turn on (there is no light indicating that it is not on). I don't know how to activate it or make it work. On Windows Live Messenger, the name of my webcam does not appear on the drop-down list, and I want to know why it does not appear only on MSN but Skype, HP TouchSmart, YouCam and other online and offline programs.

  • : HP Quicktouch on screen has stopped working, computer will not remain once I connect.

    So looking at the forums and everywhere on the internet, I know this problem starts because of an update that I installed it. But what I'm trying to understand why my computer will not remain after that window opens after I connect, because it restarts whenever I log in. I became extremely frustrated with this issue and I really don't know what to do. of course, there is the system restore, but that work? I can't find quicktouch in my list of programs to uninstall in safe mode, because this is the only mode that will allow me to stay very long. so if anyone has the answer please help me, it's super frustrating.

    Hi cavalierfanatic247,

    Thank you for using the Microsoft answers Forum.

    Start on Safe Mode desktop.

    Remove the update that caused the broadcast of programs and features in Control Panel by clicking View installed updates.

    If you are not able to remove the update, use the utility window cleaning to remove the update. See the link below:

    If the steps above did not fix the problem, try to restore the system to a previous point before windows update when it worked fine.

    To restore the operating system to an earlier point in time, follow these steps:

    Click Start, type system restore in the search box, and then click System Restore in the list programs. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type your password or click on continue.

    In the System Restore dialog box, click on choose another restore point and then click Next.

    In the list of restore points, click a restore point created before you started having the problem, and then click Next.

    You have an Essentials and HP drivers disk?

    If the system restore is not enough, you can use the HP Essentials and the disk drivers to uninstall and reinstall the quick key.

    Click Finish.

    You can see the link below for more information:


    I hope that this will really help you, good luck.
