    If the advice above do not work, contact the manufacturer because they are the best people to offer support.
    Manufacturers build many materials to make it work with the Windows operating system, this is why we cannot keep track of all the hardware devices and it is the sole responsibility of the manufacturer and not from Microsoft to develop drivers to make it compatible with the Windows operating system.

    I have access to internet on ipad, but have no internet on desktop.  Any ideas on how to fix?

    You have McAfee on the desktop PC? McAfee has been updated at the same time as the last batch of updates from Windows 7 and it seems to be the cause of this problem for most, if not all, users.

    See the communication from this "criticism" - McAfee

    Some customers may experience a loss of network connectivity and/or errors in McAfee Security Center after a recent update

    You should make the fix McAfee, if necessary. There are corresponding communications for their enterprise products.

    I had to run the removal of McAfee Development tool a few times before and it caused a problem with the license if the PC was not connected to the internet during the abduction. Due cat of McAfee support reset their files in order to allow the relocation-reactivation. Here is their link cat - McAfee - media contains the link to the cat

    I got McAfee, but the connection has started working again on its own so I thought I was clear of problems. However, when I checked it says he was doing routine checks the updates in vain when I told it to do a manually. So stick with McAfee you don't follow their procedure of fix would have upgraded my PC at risk by not updated and, like other McAfee ads have since explained, the application did not refer to its database of threats correctly [and this could explain part of the variability of the symptoms of failure but all involved loss of internet connection]. Actually, I removed McAfee then installed Microsoft Security Essentials rather & my answer IE is faster I knew it [even though I had the Add-ons McAfee disabled for centuries].

    - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    If you do not have McAfee then Windows update than kb2705219 can also be a cause as the uninstall that appeared to solve the problem for some users [but I'm not particularly convinced by this]. To uninstall an update - control panel, programs & features, [left side of the window] see installed updates. Wait until the system has finished the research for the list of updates. Select update required, then right click and Uninstall.

    Any ideas on why my Airport Extreme will not recognize the system after the integration of the time Capsule in my system? Continues to have a flashing yellow light after trying all suggestions of technicians from the Apple Store and Internet provider.

    Since we don't know all what has been tried, we will have to start from the beginning if you don't mind.

    What exact models are your AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule? What is the brand and model of your modem Internet? I'll assume that Extreme is your "main" router and is directly connected to the modem by Ethernet... correct?

    Do you have the Time Capsule (TC) connected to the extreme, by wire or wireless? What is your goal for the TC? In other words, will not be used to extend the reach of the extreme wireless?

  • I have a Toshiba laptop and my touchpad does not work any idea on how to fix

    touchpad does not work on my laptop, it is a toshiba...


    Some have keys that turns off the pad and many Toshiba have card keys which have a control.

    Control Panel - mouse - Touchpad is here

    Panel of configuration-device - mouse and pointing devices Manager - double click on info pilot.

    If no joy go to Toshiba Support and download the latest drivers for your version of Windows and 32 or 64-bit.

    Go here and put in your info model and search for the drivers for your system

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - click on - RUN AS ADMIN

    Toshiba support and drivers

    Toshiba Support Forums

    Contact Toshiba


    It's my generic how updates of appropriate driver: you mainly want to update or reinstall the touchpad drivers
    and ALSO to get the Toshiba value added Package for your version IF it is there.

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - note the brand and complete model of your
    video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now click on UPdate Driver (this
    cannot do anything as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then do a right click - Uninstall - REBOOT
    This will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party with their
    own the software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now go to the site of the manufacturer of system (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (restoration) and then of the manufacturer of the device
    (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for the BIOS, Chipset and software)
    updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - tab drivers version you install actually shows up. This
    because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (particularly that audio drivers) so install a
    pilot - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat if necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW on device at the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER - manually check by model.

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

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver in the Windows updates,
    This leaves ONE of Windows updates, but it will not install the drivers who are generally older and cause
    questions. If updates offers a new driver and then hide it (right click on it) and then go look for new ones
    manually if you wish.

    Create a folder on your hard drive and see if you can use WinExplorer to copy the entire disk to this folder and run from the folder

    Use the free http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to create an ISO and then use Imgburn to write that ISO to a blank disc

    If WinExp or Imgburn will not read the Disc, you need to contact Adobe for a replacement

    Press and hold the sleep/wake button and the Home button at the same time...

    Wait for the Apple logo to appear...

    Usually takes about 15-20 seconds... ( But may take longer...)

  • Sound does not work... why... How to fix?

    every now and then my computer loses sound, why? It is very random and very annoying.  I tried everything computers suggest Help Center and nothing, I still get a message that all is working properly... NO, IT's NOT, otherwise I would have sound.  I have no idea of what I've done in the past to get it back... I have try all kinds of things and never now if they work or if it's just returns its own.  Please HELP I need her to do their homework!

    Hi katbar,

    1. did you of recent changes on the computer?

    2 when was the last time it was working fine?

    3. when the computer loses its sound?

    That would happen generally if on the computer sound card drivers are corrupted or must be updated.

    I suggest that you manually download and install the updated drivers for the soundcard on the computer by visiting the manufacturer of the computer or sound card manufacturer's Web site and check if that helps.

  • Canon MG7100 prints but will not scan after update of the iMac? How to fix?

    Canon MG7100 worked very well with the iMac - scanning and printing. After doing the updates of the iMac and installation Siri scanning does not work. Always printing. The printer/scanner Canon said - Set PC to start scanning - I have MG7100 added on the iMac. I opened (and re-locked) firewall to let in the Canon UJ utility. I deleted the all-in-one Hi - and added MG7100.


    doesn't look like canon has a printer that takes in charge the newer versions of Mac OS x, if I were you I would take contact them to see if they plan on support of new versions, apple made no drivers for the hardware they don't and if hardware manufacturers does not provide a working driver head can group with the new version of Mac OS x We have to rely on manufacturing to have a download on their page
