T400 says "computer name is not valid" despite the validation of fingerprint


I use T - 400 in which I recently changed the name of the computer to something that was complicated to something that is easy to remember.  Subsequently, I am unable to connect to my laptop using my software fingerprint (version for validation.  It keeps giving me a message that the computer name is false.  (I don't remember the old name.) However, I can access my laptop by typing the password.  Is there a fix for this problem. My OS is 32-bit XP Professional.

Thanks in advance.

  • Bug: Changing computer name is not reflected in the existing task scheduler tasks

    I changed the name of my computer some time ago.

    Today, when I went to the Task Scheduler to add a new task, I got an error message:

    "An error has occurred for task [task name ]. Error message: the specified account name is not valid. »

    When I clicked OK to clear the error from the Task Scheduler open OK, but the task identified in the error is not in the list of tasks, which means that it was impossible to consider the task or correct the error.

    When I checked the file containing the details of the task, I found that the task remained the old computer name, i.e. it was not being updated when I changed the name of the computer, and so the task was now where the error and was apparently being hidden.

    This seems to be a bug.  Preferably, the account names must be updated if the computer name is changed, or at least the task is still visible in Task Scheduler.

  • Cannot save your work - says file name is not valid.

    I had trouble with my program of 12 items on Windows 7.  First of all, I got an error 16 then I solved that and now when I try to save a file I get the message "cannot save file"C:\\"filename... "" not valid ".  How can I fix it?  Help please!

    Thanks for your reply, but I thought about it.  My internet security was updated and added a new feature and would open my Photoshop Elements differently than usual and it would be saved no matter what.  I disabled the feature in the security program, but had to make a click right on the icon of my items and it say to never open the program within the secure framework (Sandbox Avast).  After that I did he save me and was fine.

  • Cannot delete a file in windows 7. Indicates the specified file name is not valid or too long.

    Hello everyone, I'm pretty stuck here. I can't delete a file in windows 7 or any other do with it besides. Says "the specified file name is not valid or too long. It has a funny name [~ t] and no extension. The file type, say "file". The properties are all screwed looking with a mistake on the Security tab, a size of 0 k, is a Windows (c) \Windows\en-US.The other files in this folder appear normal. The computer seems to work very well without any obvious problems. The only problem is my anti-virus reports with a kind of syntax for the file error and indicates it cannot parse this file. I do not. I can't do a thing with it either. Cannot open, rename, move, delete, change passwords, properties, permissions, nothing. It may be necessary for a good part with 0kb. According to me, I want to just delete the thing. Please, anyone? Thanks in advance.

    Hey bud, I figured out how fix it earlier. I am so happy. I came to remember a command called chkdsk which worked very well for various issues, that I had since the construction of my old 2000 Professional machine. I think that one was my first NTFS system. I always liked how well he error correction. Seemed a lot better than the old scandisk. Low and behold, I tried and star ANISE, it is went through it, found this file almost from the beginning of the analysis and a few lines later, he said has been removed. Says something about the file being orphaned some time ago. It was a very bad child, that I tell you. I ran it in safe mode command prompt. I guess he would have done the same thing in the normal windows well, but I happened to be in safemode, when it came to me. I used the switch /f with her. Since the C:\ command prompt or any drive letter your operating system is selected, type CHKDSK/F if I remember although the f was to have it automatically CORRECT errors. I hope this info helps others with their file or disk problems. It seems that many people say they get mistakes and cannot delete various files here in these forums. Thanks Sandeep for answering me and try to help. It does not matter whether or not it was the fix, it takes time to post and your helping people learn to be it. The only thing that remains unanswered for me is actually the thing of the answer. I mean I can't say someone at - it really answered my question and do not count me? Maybe I should mark so that people will bother to read it and get the fix. HMMMM... I come back here some time later and see whats up.  SeeYou, EWOO

  • while trying to reset to fix the slowness, firefox never finished, so I closed it, now it says my profile is not valid, and nothing will load.

    while trying to reset to fix the slowness, firefox never finished, so I closed it, now it says my profile is not valid, and nothing will load. So I have no possibility to repair. I tried to anUpgrade, but which resulted in the same situation.

    Sorry, when an update is interrupted, it can happen. Please start by creating a new profile. There is no data in it, but it will get us started.

    You will start the Firefox profile manager using the Windows Run dialog box (hold down the Windows key and tap R) or the system Windows 10 search box. Paste the following and press ENTER:

    firefox.exe -P

    This should start a small window.

    Click on the button to create a profile, assign a name like OldSettings and ignore the ability to move the profile folder. After you create the profile, select it and start Firefox in this profile.

    I guess that Firefox works?

  • The account name is not valid, or the password is invalid for the account specified using Cobian Backup 11 name

    I did a new install of Windows 7 Professional on a workstation, and after all the updates, I installed Cobian Backup 11.

    When you set up backup Coabian first, the message "the account name is not valid, or the password is invalid for the specified account name" was shown.

    I went into the "services.msc" to manually set the password for the connection (the machine connects in a Windows Server 2003 domain), but when entering the dialog (properties/connection/account/local/search/select where you want to search for.) only the 'local computer' is displayed.

    I tried to enter the domain/user and the password manually, I logged in as administrator, I have excluded the uder from the server and have included him again, that I did everything in my mind but I couldn't solve the problem.

    Any help is welcome.

    TKS in advance.

    PS: Someone asked me what support Cobian said about it. To be honest I did not support Cobian because the other four machines were all as one that has the problem and two "local computer" and "directory of the whole area" appears.

    This retail driver to believe that the problem occurred is on the installation of windows 7 Professional.

  • niRFSG Initialize.vi error: AWG resource name is not valid


    I use an SMU-5442 arbitrary signal generator and a PXI RF Upconverter - 5610. The RF PXI-5610 converter is PXI1Slot5 inside the MAX and the SMU-5442 AWG is PXI1Slot7.

    When I gohttp://ftp.ni.com/pub/devzone/epd/rfsg-generate-fm.vi of http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/epd/p/id/5620 , I get the error messages.

    For the resource name = PXI1Slot5


    niRFSG Initialize.vi a session cannot be created because the resource AWG name is not valid. Specifty the resource name of AWG Max by right clicking on the converter, and then select Properties. If you specify the working group through the chain of the Option, make sure that the resource name of AWG is valid.

    For the resource name = PXI1Slot7


    niRFSG Initialize.vi the specified device is not supported by this driver.

    which is correct, because PXI1Slot7 is the GTA and the VI is just using the niRFSG screws

    When I use a selector instead of the string of the Option, I can only choose the RF PXI - 5610 Upconverter is PXI1Slot5, but I still get the same error message.

    A you link them in MAX? In other words, the converter and the working group.

    When you open the file, you can see the warning as "recreate a link... blah blah your file" If reject you the message, you can still work on it, but you cannot resize, or drag all layers to other new file (tried).

  • My CS6 won't install-says serial number is not valid.

    I've owned this software for more than a year and he never gave me problems, but all of a sudden, Adobe seems to have me disconnected and wanted my serial number. I came in and he said he was not valid when I entered it correctly. I uninstalled the software and reset my Mac. I downloaded again the CS6 and entered my serial number to install and it always says that it was not valid. Help, please.

    HaydenD0009 I'm sorry that you have been facing a difficult experience with our support team.  It is likely that we receive larger volumes with many schools from their fall session.

    I checked your account and it seems that you have a valid serial number for the Master Collection CS6 under your account.  You can find details on how to locate the serial number under your account to find a serial number - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/find-serial-number.html.

    If it is the serial number that you have been entered before then it is likely that you are facing a problem with file permission or licenses file corruption.  It is what gives you the invalid serial number message.  To resolve these difficulties, I recommend the following steps:

    1. Run all available Adobe installers located in the Applications/Utilities/Adobe Installers folder.
    2. Run the CS cleaner tool to ensure the complete elimination.  You can find details on how to use the tool cleaner from CS to CS for installation problems cleaning tool | CCM, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, CS4, CS3 - http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/cs5-cleaner-tool-installation-problems.html.
    3. Reinstall your CS6 Master Collection software.
