  • Dreamweaver (on Windows 7) does not connect to the server, IIS (v7) using "FTP over SSL/TLS...". »

    I am weather evauating to buy Dreamweaver CS6...

    Trial of Dreamweaver CS6 (on Windows 7) does not connect to the IIS server (v7) using "FTP over SSL/TLS (explicit encryption).  I have a NEW Godaddy SSL certificate installed on the IIS server.

    On the connection between States Dreamweaver: "server certificate expired or contains invalid data."connectionerror.png

    I tried:

    -ALL Dreamweaver Server configuration options

    -L' use of multiple certificates (I tried 2048 and 4096-bit Godaddy SSL certificates)

    -Make sure the certificate "issued to the"domain name is my domain name. "

    I am able to connect without a problem with Filezilla, Filezilla equivalent affecting 'explicitly require FTP over TLS.  I can connect both using Microsoft Expression web.

    This has been discussed previously. I recommend reading my old thread for details:

    But to make a long story short, Godaddy is incorrectly signed SSL certificates on shared servers.  The servers/ips/domains and the certificate do not match.  So DW and many other tools fail authenticate with Godaddy SSL connections.  Some users have stated that other tools FTP, such as Filezilla as you mentioned, bypass and automatically change your connection to insecurity, but DW is very picky.  Once you modify encryption against zero, the connection will be accepted.  Best solution is if you want a certificate SSL correctly signed move to another host because Godaddy refuses to admit that they are wrong with SSL certificates on their sites.  These warnings will appear also to your users if you have a store saying the SSL certificate does not match the domain/ip and this can make users checking in a very nervous showcase.

  • Windows XP does not start after the installation of an SSD.

    Windows XP SP3 and Intel Smart Response Technology

    Recently, I built a new computer and installed Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro in a dual-boot arrangement.  Everything worked very well.  I then installed an SSD in the hopes of using the Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT) to speed things up.

    I shut down the computer, installed the SSD, brought up in Win7 and follow the easy guests in SRT to activate the player.  Restarted several times and things SSD speed up significantly.  Wonderful.
    I so restart and select Windows XP so I can SRT it.  After you select Windows XP in the boot menu, a few seconds and I get a quick flash of a BSOD and the computer restarts spontaneously.  I can't enter in WinXP, not even without failure or last known good config Mode.
    I again in Win7 and disable the SRT, reboot and I can enter Windows XP very well.  So obviously WinXP has a problem with the SRT is activated outside the XP.  That being said, I can't activate SRT in WinXP first either.  "Accelerate" option does not appear in the menu.
    Any ideas on that?
    Thanks for your help!


    In these cases, we always recommend to update the system BIOS of motherboard, update the firmware of the controller RAID and disks installed. If the problem persists, you will need to fix the compatibility problem directly with the manufacturer of the motherboard and add it to the RAID controller itself.

    I suggest you to contact Intel support site to improve assistance on the issue.

    Warning of the BIOS:

    BIOS change / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

  • Homer in Windows Server does not connect to the internet.

    I installed Windows Home Server on a self-built media server. Everything on the hardware is working properly. The server software is installed.

    Black screen when the computer is idle

    When my computer is idle for a while, the screen goes black.  I used to shake the mouse and he came right away, but now I have to reboot each time to get my computer to work.  I have Windows Vista Home.  Help, please!

  • Windows 7 does not start after the installation of updates - sounds familiar!

    Apparently, I have another system that no longer starts after you install an update to Windows 7. New kick computer _ I have to disable the automatic update of windows. Twice I had to restore the system in the first week because he hung up after the installation of updates for windows 7. I have no idea what update is the cause of the problem.

    Essentially, start the screen goes black with the cursor blinking in the upper left corner of the screen. The only way out is to restore the system.

    Does anyone know what update is the culpret? HP support has no idea. Their only solution was to update windows 7 to 'never download an update from windows '. It is a terrible thing to be underestimated solution.

    Here's the resolution...

    I installed all the updates except KB2284742 954430, 973688 and 971033. So I decided to install these 1 4 at a time in the order shown. I installed successfully 228472 and 954430 and 973688 disappeared from the list of available updates. So I installed 971033 and it installed successfully and I was still able to restart.

    My conclusion is that there is a conflict between the first 3 updates when they are installed at the same time.

    Now my system is up to date with all windows updates and I'm able to restart without any problems!

  • Windows Vista does not load all the black white backlit display.

    I'm repairing computer of my aunt. It's a laptop gateway M-6320. Windows Vista. It loads the bios and goes through the MAIL. After the POST, it just goes to a screen backlit black white with no mouse and nothing happens.

    Tried to change the boot order to boot from the cd first and put the disc of windows 7 in to run a repair (I don't have a vista cd), but it does not always load. everything sounds like it turns on and works fine. the dvd sounds like it runs for a few seconds. I also tried to boot from usb with windows 7 there. still won't load what it is. I took out the battery tested cmos it is 2, 5V. I think it was. still nothing. I left the computer for a whole night. still nothing. I changed the hard drive even though it sounds like it's working. still nothing. I even tried a windows xp cd in the freak chance, it was a bad cd. and nothing is connected to the computer while I'm trying to start. He's not going for advanced options or to try safe mode.

    I also tried to put the memtest on USB, but it will not load anything from him even with usb as the first boot option. and I tried different usb drives also.

    I can't figure what's wrong... my only thought is that the bios is corrupted or the RAM is bad. Anyone have any ideas? Oh and the bios is Phoenix


    Since you've already tried all the troubleshooting steps, including booting from a Windows 7 disc to repair the Windows installation. If all else fails, then I think that
    It's a hardware problem. I suggest you contact the manufacturer of the laptop computer or take it to a tech store to get help.

  • Laptop running Windows 7 does not start if the external hard drive is connected

    I know what is already on a thread, but here it is again (i.e. thread became uncontrollable anyway and did not offer me solutions). I have an ASUS K53S laptop computer Series and use it as a desktop PC. It sits on my desk and never move, I plugged my larger screen, a keyboard and mouse, printer and external hard drive that I keep all my information on i rarely save to local disk. These things represent more than ports USB to the laptop, I have a hub 4 ports on there also. It is just background information; I mean, the laptop is a must.

    Here's the problem: when I start, as I do every morning, I used to see ASUS inspire Innovation - first of all, persistent Perfection for about 1 second, then the laptop will just get on the job and complete its start-up in about a minute (including login). Which was very good until a few days ago when things started slows down a bit, then I rebooted as I always used to with my Windows XP tour. All closed but return is reactivated and it hung on the opening screen of ASUS and show no signs of getting further. I went outside and continued on another work that does not need a computer, thinking that if I ignored it it would be bit go further, but I came back hours later to find that it is always locked.
    Well after a little, I took the plug my external hard drive, and he continued to start where he left off, like nothing had happened.
    This settled this possibility, but before that, I had established a thing; I need to connect my external hard drive before starting, otherwise it wouldn't connect properly.
    When I managed to finally get both going at the same time (Yes, after some persistence, he recognized the drive but I still would like a solution to this when it exists), I looked at the hard drive and all my files are corrupted or something. photos are not valid, some files that I know to have files in appear them as empty and I can't make any sense at all. Is there someone out there who has had this problem before and fixed, and if so, how?
    My external hard drive is a Seagate 1 TB, if it helps.
    I really want an answer to this, I have data on that disc that I need and I'm not.

    If the problem affects only one PC it says its something specific to this PC.

    Is there traces of yellow warning in Device Manager?

    At whatever it is updated / installed on this PC before this problem, or run a maintenance utility?

    If there is no warning of the Device Manager, then if you perform a clean boot PC NB this isn't the manual method the Fixit which helps?

  • Windows 7 does not start on the new Satellite C660-195


    I just bought a Toshiba Satellite C660-195 with Windows 7 pre-installed.

    This morning I turned on it and it came with a black box with x:windows\system32\drvload.exe in it. This box then disappeared and Startup Repair kicked. He then told me that Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically. The notice were to remove any device that had recently been attached to the laptop (such as a webcam or music device) but I did not install a hardware or devices. I clicked finish and stop you the laptop.

    I lit it again and it's the same thing (new!)

    A forum would suggest trying the following: click on the link 'Show advanced options of the system and support recovery' who asked me to choose the configuration of my keyboard, but then when I do & click then it tells me "you must register to access system recovery options" I am never given the option connect!

    When using the F8 advanced boot options I'm still not able to solve this problem. The same thing (see above) that happens when I try to start in all security modes, last good known Configuration (Advanced), debug mode, start Windows normally etc. I don't understand it.

    Looking for other forums, they suggested dΘplaτant zero while running and then one selects Windows 7 to restore the laptop to its factory settings, but the same thing happens - it shows just the black screen with x:windows\system32\drvload.exe launched then startup repair, that does not solve the problem.

    I don't have a disc of windows 7 to restore since I only bought the laptop 6 days ago and didn't have time to do a still. In addition, the laptop must have the restoration on his hard drive, but I can't access it to restore windows.

    I'm just a home user understand all technical talk. Please can someone help me?


    Sorry to hear you I have this problem. The fact is that the new laptops come with only HARD drive recovery image and not with recovery DVDs. What you can try now is to install the recovery image using HARD drive recovery facility.
    If this works you need out of the box again.

    Please do it following the instructions in this document -
