Blank screen when i connect my laptop to tv with a hdmi cable. I am trying to coonect my laptop ( dell studio 1555 ) to my sony tv ( bravia kdlw4100 ) using an hdmi cable. My laptop is running windows 7 home premium ed. I have 2 questions in this regard - first question is what display settings do i need to change on my laptop in order to get the output on the tv ?

Second question - while trying to get this stuff working i changed the following settings- graphic options -> extend > to digital tv. Since i changed this setting i am having problems getting a display on the laptop ( when the hdmi cable is connected ). Even if i remove the hdmi cable the screen still remains blank and i have to hard boot the laptop to get it working. Is there a way i can get back to my original display settings?

Cannot Do Network Backup Of Computers

I was able to do a network backup using vista. Now with windows 7 home premium i am unable. Why was this change made. I have 5 computers networked and i don't want to go out and buy an external drive for each computer. Why the change? I cannot do a network back up of my 5 computers that are now running windows 7 premium. If i had known that i could not backup to a network drive, i would have bought the new version.

Network Computers Not Connected

I have a desk top pc with windows 7 and a laptop with vista. I am unable to get the two connected on the home network. I have a router. The laptop is set up wireless. Neither computer shows the other on the network. Only in the security system (trendmicro) does the laptop show up as being on the network. The laptop shows a second computer with a mac address but it indicates "offline" so i can't determine the ip. The network map on each computer shows this computer - network - internet. Both computers are named the same as is the network. Is this an os compatibility problem?

Home Network Computers Do Not See Each Other

I have a hybrid home network with a cisco linksys wireless router and linksys voip phone adapter. I say hybrid, because my pc is hard-wired to the router while my laptop is wireless. Both computers are running windows 7. Both computers see the internet and work fine; however, i can't get the computers to see each other on the home network. I tried setting up the home network through windows 7 rules with no luck. I installed the cisco network manager software and the router software will not link the two together either. I have the network wired per the voip phone adapter instructions, which is to capture the modem stream through the voip adapter and send it to the pc. Phone also works fine this way. Anyone got a clue why the computers don't see each other, and if it is because of the way the voip adapter is connected, how should my network be wired?

Wireless And Lan Network Adapter Icon Disappeared

I have an acer aspire 8920g running windows 7 ultimate having updated frm windows vista 32-bit. My problem is that for some reason my network adapters, both wireless and the lan ports don't show up in the area they used to, and also both of the drivers i had in my network adapter section in the device manger had a yellow question mark over them which means the device is not working properly because windows cant load the required driver.

This meant i couldn't load the internet, through using another pc i managed to reinstall and update one of my devices/drivers (intel wireless wifi link 4695agn) but my other one (atheros ar8121/ar8113/ar8114 pci-e ethernet controller) hasn't stopped having this error (code 31 error) even though ive downloaded the latest drivers from the atheros website which means i still cannot use my lan ports. Does anyone have any idea what may have happened?

When both are switched on then live messenger cannot get logged into on the windows 7 machine. The machines are not networked other than to the router. Can someone help to identify if this is a common problem that cannot be fixed or what can be done to correct this problem.

Connecting To Network

I just reinstalled windows vista to my laptop, when i try to connect to a network its says there are none, but there is b/c i have another pc connected to my internet, i used the internet earlier today before i reinstalled, so its all set up right.

Blue Screen When Connecting To Wireless Network

My computer crashes and shows a bsod very often. The thing is that happens usually when i'm connected to a wireless network in my office. I thought it was some problem with the office wireless network, but then it happened with the network of a hotel i was staying in some time ago. And those are the only situations when it happens. At home it works just fine, without any problems. What should i do?

Trouble Using An Ide To Usb Cable

I just built a new computer. I used an ide to usb cable to upload legacy files to my new hard drive. That worked very well with an older hard drive; my computer saw a "usb device" and enabled drivers for it; i was able to upload the files. After hooking upa newer ide hard drive (the one from my most recent older computer), my computer shows it in control panel as a usb device, declares that "it is working properly";

I even get the "beep" when connecting the usb; but it doesn't show up in windows explorer like the first drive did. I know this one is working; even my computer is indicating that; it just doesn't show up as a drive in windows explorer so that i could pull files across from it. Any ideas?

Usb Transfer Cable Old Xp To New Win 7

Someone very nice just bought and gave me a brand new gaming computer. He bought me a new hard drive. I have my old computer with two hard drives running windows xp. 1st hard drive has all my game settings and links from desktop icon to the 2nd hard drive, which i use to store about 100 games.

I simply need to transfer everything. It would take me weeks to load all 100 of those games with their patches, downloads, ect. So i bought a usb transfer cable for 15 bucks. I get home and first thing it says is "start both computers"

I do have two power cords, but i only have one keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Can i hook up the usb cord between the two, plug both power cords in, and just keep switching my mouse, keyboard, and monitor back and forth to do the process? I'm assuming once the transfer begins i wont be using them.

My new computer has a 500gb hard drive. My old one used and 12 gb c:drive and 80gb d: slave. Will it read both and just dump everything from both hard drives into the new one?  What about files that have the same name?  Will it combine them?

I've just spent about 90mins reading and searching through many sites and posts. None seem to have anyone similar to my situation, which i found strange. Does everyone buy a new mouse, keyboard, and monitor. :-)

Black Screen With Hdmi Cable

So i recently built a computer, and decided to go with windows 7. I plug in the vga cable to my computer and monitor, and it works awesomely. I plug the hdmi cable into the computer and then into my tv, and the tv is showing a black screen. Even if i try to drag items onto it, duplicate the desktop, or even set the tv as my main screen, nothing seems to show up on the tv. Looking through the faq, it says that only movies and games would show up on the hdtv, but that hasn't worked either. Does anyone know what i can do to fix this?

Installing Jvc Gy-dv5000u Via Usb Cable

I've recently been given a jvc mini dv video recorder, and only 1 mini dv tape. The tape is full and i noticed there are 2 cable ports: one is for a fire wire cable, the other is usb. I don't have a fire wire cable, but the usb cable i have fits this camera. I'm unable to install it on my system. The system looks for drivers for the camera, even though i have the transfer usb cable connected. Outside of purchasing an ieee, is there something i can do to make the usb transfer work?

Switching Computers

I recently purchased a copy of windows 7 for 2 computers in my home. Both installed and ran without issues. Today, one of the computers failed to boot and appears to be a fatal issue in the bios and the death of one computer. With that, i'm am off to purchase a laptop though any laptop i look at already has windows 7 installed. That leaves me with a copy of windows 7 that was purchased only 3 months ago, (i still have my receipt as well) that i can no longer use. I do intend to replace my motherboard on the currently dead computer, but with the laptop, i can use that computer for different things.

With that, i plan on getting a new more capable hard drive though i have read that copy of windows gets registered to the hard drive itself. I have seen reports that this can be corrected when replacing computers but i can not seem to locate how to accomplish this. If anyone has any information on where i can go in order to reinstall my copy of windows onto a new computer would be appreciated.

Cannot See Workgroup Computers

I set up a work-group on my xp computers and windows 7 computer to be able to share files, but my xp computers can't see the windows 7 computer in the work-group, and vice versa. These computers had previously seen each other fine, but they have now somehow become invisible to each other. I can access the shared folders directly by ip address ([xxx. Xxx. Xxx. Xxx][shared folder name]) but not by the host-name of the computer. I also can ping by ip address but not by host-name. Any ideas?

No Computers In Homegroup

I have a windows 7 desktop and a vista laptop. Clean installed windows 7 on laptop. Both computers say "no other people in homegroup".executed several solutions found on web but nothing worked. Discovered the following:on desktop, under control panel/network and internet/network connections it says network in the status column for the ethernet local area connection. On my laptop, under control panel/network and internet/network connections is has a bunch of letters and numbers in the status column for the ethernet local area connection.

Wireless adapter has been disabled in device manager. Since it does not say network like my desktop computer, could this be the problem of no computers in homegroup?On my desktop in windows explorer under network, it shows my laptop and i can access what is shared. On my laptop in windows explorer under network, no desktop computer is shown. Ll settings for sharing on both computers have not been alter and are the defaults setup at installation time. Before converting the laptop from vista to windows 7, it could see and access all shared foldes on my windows 7 desktop.

I purchased a windows 7 disc that supports 3 computers. I installed the product on my laptop and then had a problem with it and reformatted my computer and reinstalled both vista and windows 7.

I also had desktop that i installed it on but windows 7 did not recognize my graphics card so i uninstalled it. I would like to know what i need to do to still be able to use windows 7 on 3 different computers.

Swap License Between Computers

I purchased and installed w7 home premium upgrade to my desktop and w7pro upgrade to my laptop. Later, i decided to reinforce my desktop hardware and make it a more powerful environment, so also decided to switch and install the w7pro on it with the intent to take the laptop down to home premium. Windows allowed for the pro upgrade on my desktop during activation but it is not allowing me to use the home premium key on the laptop. In the case of the desktop i used the anytime upgrade option while on the laptop i reloaded clean install from home premium disk to ensure it removes any pro settings.

Any ideas?
