Problems with DNS resolution on a Dell computer. I think so.

I have a network consisting of two Windows 2003 servers and 12 computers.  On ONE of the computers, we seem to have a DNS problem.  Every once in a while (sometimes twice a day, sometimes every half hour), a computer loses its connection to our domain controller.  The server name is 'Server-2' and his IP's

When I lose the connection, if I ping, I get a response.  If I ping server-2, the answer says it's 'ping server-2 []... ". »

From now on, there is no IP address of in my DHCP server.  I don't know where it comes from.  The DHCP on the server-2 charge to distribute addresses between and but when I checked it does not distribute a, although he did distribute addresses all around 115.

This affects any other computer except this one.  I tried to do an IPconfig/flushdns, then one/registerdns.  Nothing.  I would also note that a reboot does not necessarily solve the problem, although sometimes it's... not always.

Suggestions as to how I can solve this problem?

Thank you!

    I hope someone can help me find a solution
    Thanks in advance


    I put t know what games you want to play, but generally speaking, it of also depending on the game you can use screen resolutions. For example if your game supports only 2 screen resolutions, you can only use these resolutions.

    So all you can do is update the driver DirectX and display. Then, look for an update (patch) for the game.

    Good luck! :)

  • Problem with the resolution when you connect to a projector

    I regularly used my laptop connected to a projector via a cable VGA for PowerPoint and video clips view in Windows Media Player.   It is automatically detected and adjusted for different sizes of screen of the laptop screen (1366 x 768) and projector (1024 x 768) and projected with success.   Recently I connected the laptop to a second monitor - also 1024 x 768 - instead, and even once, it fits perfectly.

    It suddenly stopped setting for the resolution of the projector; When I go to the resolution of the screen, the option to set the resolution of the second screen is grayed out.   No matter if I use extend or duplicate, he insists that the two screens are 1366 x 768.   This has happened with two projectors, all two used to work properly.   I also tried different VGA cables.  The end result is that the image of the projector is hurry to tray.

    I can connect fine to the second monitor via the VGA port and sometimes with different resolutions for both screens.   I can also connect to a TV via an HDMI cable.   I can't try a HDMI cable for the spotlight as it is ceiling mounted, and the other is old and is not an HDMI connection.

    I checked the drivers and they seem to be up to date.

    My laptop is a Dell Latitude running Windows 7.   The graphics card is an Intel HD Graphics 3000.   I tried many suggestions already given on these forums without success.   The real puzzle is that it was working fine and nothing I can draw has changed except that I connected on the other monitor.

    Hi Tony,.

    Thanks for the reply with the status of the issue. I'm sorry to know that the issue is still unresolved, your efforts to solve this problem are much appreciated.

    I suggest to follow the method below and check if that helps:

    Method 1: Perform a system restore.

    System restore

    System restore WARNING: when you use the system restore to restore the computer to a previous state, the programs and updates that you have installed are removed.

    Method 2: Uninstall all hidden devices:

    Step 1: See the article below to activate the devices hidden in Device Manager.

    Look at a hidden devices (v = vs. 85) .aspx

    Step 2: After you enable hidden devices, remove devices from Device Manager.

    1. press start.

    2. type device manager in the start search box.

    3. Select Device Manager in the search result.

    4 uninstall everything that are grey also uninstall the drivers to display completely.
    5 restart the computer and install the drivers to view the manufacturer's Web site.

    Hope this information helps, just reply to the State of the question to get help.

    Hi Rizwan

    Unfortunately, I do not have a restore point old enough until the problem occurred.   I have not found any that was relevant in hidden devices, but in normal Device Manager mode when I clicked on "monitor" it opened a "Generic PnP" entry even when there was no extra monitor or projector fixed.   When an additional monitor has been attached, there were two of these entries.   I disabled them both, and I found that I can now adjust the resolution of a second monitor to a different setting of the laptop screen.

    Thanks for your help.

    Greetings to one and all and I thank very you much for your help to help me.

    I have a laptop Dell Inspiron 1501 with Windows Vista Home Basic AMD Mobile Sempron processor. Recently, I tried to upgrade the free version of my Antivir Avira antivirus for a trial version, but during the process, I lost my internet connection. Sometimes, my network shows another "Local and Internet" and "Local" only. However, in both cases I am not able to connect to the Internet. Whenever I try to open a page in the browser, it is blank and nothing appears on the screen... I also try to reinstall the operating system, but since I can't access the Internet when I reached the point of the process called "GET IMPORTANT updates to UPDATE for the INSTALLATION" where I have to choose between two options a) go online to get the latest updates (recommended) and b) do not get the latest updates for facilities , I can only opt for the other that says that the installation may fail. Therefore, it seems that I cannot even reinstall the operating system. In addition, I often small windows to appear on my screen as "msnmsgr.exe" "skype.exe" "OSA.exe" file corrupted with such messages "the file C:\Users\ myname\AppData\Local\Temp directory is corrupted and unreadable. Please run the chkdsk utility ". However, the problem is I can't run the check disk, because every time I have it try I got the following message "checking file system on C, the type of files is NTFS one of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You can cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue"until I read the whole message again appears" the disk check was cancelled ". I am not able to get the help and Support Windows open, but on the window I only heard the message "you have lost your connection using Windows and support". I don't know what to get my computer works well and my connection internet back. Someone here tell me step by step what to do to solve all the problems mentioned above? I am very grateful to each of you. Please, note that from my computer I have not access to Internet, so tell me any solution which will take me to use my computer to connect to the Internet. Sorry for the length of my post.

    PS at the beginning of this problem I used to have errors with their code on the screen of my laptop, but unfortunately I did not take account of their > more, for to appear the problem worsens my computer was a bit slow


    First of all, thanks a lot to you all and especially to the Lorien-SpiritX and their insightful answers. As they both suggest to me I tried sfc/scannow and I received the following message on my laptop screen "start the phase of checking system scan audit 44% complete Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation"

    I did also check CHKDSK/f/r utility Office and I received the following message "the type of the file system is NTFS cannot lock drive current CHKDSK cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. You want to schedule this volume to check the next time the system restarts "and I answered Yes

    In addition, I tried to use my CD to reinstall my operating, but if it starts well by copying files to the end of the process, when the second stage of the process "expand our files" starts, it stops at 27% and never goes further.

    These are all questions, added to all that I already mentioned in my first post with the same title

    This looks like failing hardware, not software. I would look at the hard drive first, and then the RAM and the motherboard.

    If the computer is still under warranty, contact Dell technical support.

    On tests of hardware failures often alleged swapping parts by parts checked. If you can not do the test yourself and/or are uncomfortable opening your computer, take the machine to a professional computer repair shop (not your local equivalent of BigComputerStore/GeekSquad). If possible, have all your data backed up before taking the machine into a shop.

  • Problem with Windows Media Player on your computer.

    I tried to load a program called Yawcam which can be used to control a webcam.  Installation of Yawcam has asked if I wanted Windows Media Center to view the Webcam.  I clicked Yes.  Serious mistake.  Windows Media Center has taken over my computer.  I have changed throughout most of my icons on the desktop for a Media Center icon, and clicking on one of them causes Windows Media Player start up, even the icons which are always original.  I can't find any setting in Media Player which will solve the problem.  I can't even start Yawcom.  And unfortunately I did not define a recovery point.  Can someone tell me how to retrieve my Windows Media Center desktop icons and return control of my computer myself?

  • Having problems with ports USB 3.0 in computer option H8 - 1010 T

    Well, I bought the option USB 3.0 ports on top of the computer on the computer mentioned in the Thread object and I have problems with them.

    I tried plugging USB 2.0 devices in these two ports to "test" to see if they work, yet I am not able to get them to work with USB 2.0 devices. USB 2.0 is not compatible with USB 3.0 ports? Or I'm doing something other 'evil' here?

    Unfortunately, I do not have a USB 3.0 device to plug USB 3.0 ports to make sure that it is certainly a problem with ports still.

    The device in question I've tried in the USB 3.0 ports is a Microsoft Wireless Mouse 6000 wireless receiver. If the ports are not connected correctly, I would have assumed that the wireless receiver would have "blown" when I plugged it in, but it still works very well.

    USB 2.0 devices are not compatible with USB 3.0 ports? I know that USB 3.0 devices are backward compatible with USB 2.0 ports (I have a friend who is in this situation), but I also thought that the opposite was supposed to be true as well. Am I wrong?

    Were there any changes (hardware or software) to the computer before the show?

    Perform the check and the boot if the problem persists.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: Follow step 7 to reset the computer to start as usual after the boot process.

    Hope that helps.
  • problems with my recent purchase of Dell Inspiron 15 3000-3543

    Re: Inspiron 15 3000 Series, English Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (including Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit license and media)

    He had for a few days, the main issues:

    1. really bad wireless connections (to compare to my #2 concern that it's still bearable)

    2. when I'm away from my laptop for maybe 20 minutes or more, it would freeze and no matter what you do, he would not answer. I had to turn it off at length by pressing the power button. My laptop battery is never off on battery screen. (not before so he shouldn't go to sleep, even he fell asleep... it must wake up at some point isn't! = 0 =).

    Call dell technical support, they asked me to run a test and discovered material is all ok.

    Do you think I should return this? If so, please recommend another model. I need for the daily use of base, I need to buy from the dell website that I have a $250 e-gift card. If any price close to $250 would be great.

    Thank you!!!

    Hello Michel,

    I had problems with my Inspiron 3543 when I bought.

    After the diagnosis, Dell found the Wifi card and motherboard failure. Given that the laptop was under warranty, Dell has replaced the two mother board and wifi adapter.
