1  Internet & Network Support / Wireless Devices Problems / Re: wireless pcmcia network card not working on: May 14, 2013, 08:30:23 PM
So, new problem. I have obtained a new pcmcia wireless card but when it turns on, it just decides to not work. I found out that when I go into device management, it is always disable everytime the laptop turns on.

i've tried enabling but it disables when it turns on, tried updating driver (may try again) and tried uninstall and reinstall driver...

it's a belkin wireless card

any help would be appreciated

I had a pcmcia card reader and it worked without problems. It looks like the wireless card is dying.
3  Internet & Network Support / Wireless Devices Problems / wireless pcmcia network card not working on: May 05, 2013, 03:36:47 AM
I'm not sure where to start but basically i have an old laptop that a senior uses and the wireless card stopped working.

He takes this laptop with him when he travelled, so the laptop has been on the plane.

The wireless card is a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Adapter mn-720. It used to work without problem. The issue now is it will not turn on. I unplug and plug it back into the PCMCIA slot then you hear the laptop make a click sound and a really fade light on the card and then it just turns off. Sometimes it takes like 10-20 tries before it turns on. However, once the laptop is turned off and you restart, it doesn't turn back on. I've tried this on both PCMCIA slots.

At first, there was an '!' in the device manager, so i deleted it and let xp reinstall the driver. It worked for 1 day. I also tried deleting the PCMCIA and wait for windows to reinstall it but it did not work either. I even went into the BIOS and enabled "Internal Network Adapter" and that seemed to work for a day only.

I have scanned laptop for viruses and spyware but nothing.

Am I missing something here?

6  Hardware Support / Hardware Devices Problems / Data Recovery... gone wrong? on: December 21, 2010, 03:32:15 AM
This is my hardware set up...

I have an AMD Sempron computer (cheap and was sufficient 5 years ago) and it's been starting to slow down (it had already crashed once a year ago) and I have a Western Digital 80gb hhd as the main and a seagate (?) 40gb pulled from my older sony vaio computer as a secondary drive. I also have a 400gb sata hhd (some unknown MDT brand) in a case connected via sub.

I've used the 400gb hard drive for 3 years now and it stores my pictures, music, video, creative stuff and everything has been working last week. A few days ago, when i connected it, i noticed my computer freezes. So, i turned it off and then on again (had to try it for 2 times) and a restart, then my computer read the hhd. However, now it tells me it's inaccessible.

Ok, no problem, I have a data recovery program that I had used last time to help my sister recover her data on 160gb hard... i start and now it's tell me "remaining time" is over 1150 hours. 1150 hours?! that's 6 weeks!  Huh?

And as of this post, it has already been running for 27 hours and has found 112394 files. I personally don't remember having over 110k files but the hhd was at maybe 70 capacity (approx 250gb used).

I KNOW this is NOT normal... I dont know if using my laptop (running intel dual core) will speed up the process or if this is where the "time is money" comes in...

your suggestion will be GREATLY appreciated.
7  Internet & Network Support / Internet & Email / My gmail send out a spam? on: November 18, 2010, 07:36:46 PM
I have an odd situation and I can't figure out the answer...

on Tuesday, my gmail decided to send EVERYONE in my contact list (with about 30 mailed delivery and caused chaos to my blackberry). The most simple answer was possibly a virus which I had scanned and there isn't any. I looked into it a bit more detail and gmail logged that I did send it out. And when I looked at even more detail on the email and logged it came from my work IP which I had on and did NOT send out anything at that time.

I'm confused about how I "send" this out, anyone have any idea Huh? Huh?
8  Computer Related Discussions / Buying Advice / upgrading parts on: February 27, 2009, 05:58:00 AM
I'm hoping someone can just give me some pointers... I'm not looking into buying a brand new computer (although, I may be better off spending the money on it), I just want to upgrade some parts. Mostly the CPU and the memory.

I'm currently running an AMD Sempron 3000+ on a K8V-MX with 768MB (512 + 256). I might actually get Athlon 3700+ (max that it supports) off ebay and upgrading memory to 2GB with OCZ 2 1GB PC3200.

Now, my question is... (somewhat a newbie question) If I upgrade the processor by just change it, will I have any headache with
1) BIOS upgrade (it's using American Megatrands ver 1009.005 - I really have no idea on how to update BIOS)
2) XP will not be interrupted (I really dont want to reinstalled everything - knowing windows, if it's not the same config that it last remember, something funky happens)

And how much significant will I see in the speed of the computer?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Smiley

11  Software Support / Operating Systems : Microsoft / XP SP3 -> significant PC slowdown on: February 26, 2009, 04:17:07 AM
Ok, I've done everything I can think of with the exception of reinstalling XP or a reformat... if I were to that, I might as well go buy a new computer...

So, here's the problem. I had downloaded Combat Arms and for no apparently reason, Kaspersky catches the game as a virus keylogger... and while I play, the game temporary lags every 30 sec... making me vulnerable for easy kill.

While talking to the people I play with, one suggested update windows to see if it would improve. So, I proceeded with updated XP from sp2 to sp3.

It got worse...

After updating, I notice that when window loads that blue screen for "Welcome" it's VERY slow to load. This sluggish load is also seen in IE7 AND Firefox. So, everytime I load a webpage that would normally take a nano seconds now take a whole sec. It looks of the sluggishness feels like I have a lot of **** in the computer ie. spyware and virus. However, I've scanned with 2 different anti-virus AND 3 different anti-spyware program and nothing much showed up.

The game has already been uninstalled... along with other junk that I dont even use but there's no difference. I've uninstalled sp3 and it's STILL sluggish.

Does anyone have ANY idea of what's going on and have some suggestions? I'll post a hijackthis log but there's nothing unusual about it...
12  Software Support / Operating Systems : Microsoft / Re: InitializeCommand on: April 24, 2008, 04:03:51 AM
i tried unplugging the other drive and the message still shows up...
13  Software Support / Operating Systems : Microsoft / Re: InitializeCommand on: April 20, 2008, 10:55:41 PM
Anyone?
14  Software Support / Operating Systems : Microsoft / InitializeCommand on: April 14, 2008, 12:08:27 AM
I've google but haven't found an answer...

It just started recently... when I turn on the computer it goes into the Window splash screen and then it switches to a blue screen (not BSOD) and it shows

InitializeCommand

c000003a

for just 5 sec... and xp then loads normally.

I looked at the various possible reason on google but I do not run any raid drive.

Does anyone have any idea what it is?

I have 2 harddrive (80gb and 40gb) but had not ran into this message before.
