When i plug it in my windows 7 x64 laptop, it says "unknown device, " "usb device not recognized. " Where can i find the right drivers for this bluetooth dongle?

Creating Ad-hoc Connection Via Broadband Usb

I'm new to the windows community and a few weeks out of the box with windows 7. I've gotta say, while the change is mostly for the better, i find that more trouble has come out of this upgrade than sticking with vista. While i had vista (best buy set it up, while i set up 7 on my own), i had no trouble setting up an ad-hoc connection to share internet with my ipod and such, but no such luck anymore. I run on an hp pavilion tx 1000 and have had trouble with enabling my wifi detection.

I've followed several forums-some that said to uninstall then reinstall hp wireless assistant and the ones that said sheerly to nix the little amber guy (though he should be blue. The switch stopped working with the conversion) and leave the program uninstalled. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled and updated drivers repeatedly from hp's website (vista drivers. ). I've updated my bio's as well, no nada.

I've tried the fn+f4 (which yielded results once and then decided it liked being lazy and dormant and stopped working) combination instead of using the now unresponsive switch, to no avail. I've also tried making it so i could "share" my internet connection by changing my adapter options, but the ad-hoc still won't connect. It just keeps coming up with a troubleshooter that thinks a while and decides it can't find a problem (sigh).

I might also mention that i use a verizon broadband usb 720 internet thing-a-ma-jig that is pretty finicky. Like i said, everything was smooth in vista with the same equipment, i'm not sure what happened. Several weeks of googling later i can only come up with thinking that i need to replace something internally or i need help beyond what i can do.

Win 7 Doesn't See Usb Broadband Modem

I've been using the speedup su-8200 3. 5g mobile connect usb broadband modem for the last 2 years.
It was running fine with win xp pro sp3 first, then with win 7 rc1. Now i bought a new pc, its os is win 7 hp, it recognize and run the software, but then the sw doesn't see any device. In device manager win see a data interface, but without any driver, but that's the funny thing, this device doesn't need and doesn't come with any cd or driver.

Connect Xbox 360 To Laptop Running Usb Wireless Broadband Stick

Can i connect my xbox 360 to my laptop running usb wireless broadband stick and play on xbox live? I was wondering if it is at all possible to connect an xbox360 direct to a laptop that uses a telstra 21 wireless broadband usb stick to connect to internet.

I really like xbox and games and i find it hard to believe that in this day and age with 90% of the world using laptops that microsoft didn't create xbox with the capacity to connect through a laptop.
I have windows vista home premium on my toshiba laptop.

Bitlocker Hangs With Duplicate Usb Key

I am using windows 7 ultimate with bitlocker running on the boot drive. My laptop doesn't support tpm, so i am booting successfully from a usb key. Everything has been working great. Today i bought two 'nicer' 8gb usb keys (they look better on my car keyring). I have tried copying the . Bek file to them, i have tried using the bitlocker manager to 'duplicate' my boot key. But nothing seems to work.

My original key works fine. But both of these new keys hang the computer immediately after windows says "windows bitlocker drive encryption key loaded. Remove key storage media. " My original key is a 4gb one. But that is the only difference i can see. Any suggestions?

Bluetooth Dongle Not Working

I am having trouble getting my computer to connect to my motorola s305 bluetooth headset. I have a dongle that has worked in the past, but not now. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing drivers. Here's what i think happened: i tried a different, older dongle that changed something "deep" in the machine, likely in the registry?-This 2nd, older dongle never worked, but it installed some software. I don't know what to change at this point.

All bluetooth and device functions claim to be fine. The problem is that when i tell the bluetooth headset in "playback devices" to connect, it doesn't. Sometimes it connects for 1/10 of a second, then stops, as though something in the registry is subverting it and claiming priority. What to wipe/ cleanse/ uninstall?

Irda Dongle Not Working In Hotsync

Irda dongle not working in hotsync -> unable to initiate hotsync operation because the port is in use by another application.

However, i can not get the hotsync to work.

The pc recognized the irda dongle and when i put the palm close to it, after 3-5 seconds, it will show "unable to initiate hotsync operation because the port is in use by another application".

Broadband Driver

A month ago i purchased new laptop with windows 7, installed cricket broadband & worked perfect for 2 weeks, all of a sudden it doent work anymore, called cricket uninstalled cricket software reinstalled it but still doesn't work///no internet, then a sign pops out which says that part of the software (pantech usb modem v2) seems to be the problem not installing  properly and cricket people seem to think the problem is in windows, maybe a download is stopping the pantech software not installing properly! By the way i installed the broadband in my other windows vista laptop and it works fine.

Broadband Error 651

While on line and and everything is fine sooner or later i get error 651 and the computer tries to connect to broadband #2 and puts me on working off line mode. I cancel attempt to connect to broadband 2 and open tools and uncheck work offline, sometimes more than one attempt is needed but i get back onto my cable modum line. I have owned this computer only a few days and i am not real computer savy. Does microsoft have a fix for this?  Windows 7 was loaded on this computer from h. P. Not purchased from microsoft by me, i think this limits support from microsoft.

Cannot Connect To Broadband Service

I recently connected to a local grocery stores' public wireless internet service, which took forever to do and was so slow that i gave up on it. Now i cannot connect to my own broadband service at my home, either wirelessly or by ethernet cable. I spoke to someone at comcast and he guided me through the usual (scripted) fixes then told me to call microsoft, who told me to call dell. I'm assuming something changed by connecting to the public service but it is beyond my capability to figure out what. They had me delete browsing history, restore settings, etc. I tried the "repair connection" option on my laptop and some other simple things, but so far no help.

Failed To Retrieve Broadband - Error - Http Status 404

I have tried every solution i have seen in the microsoft forums, and can still not see netflix or internet tv on my laptop or my desktop. Laptop has a clean install of win7 x64 and desktop has an upgrade from vista to win7 x64. When i try to update on both machines, i get the same "guide could not download" error, and when i check the event log, it states  "failed to retrieve broadband. Enc (error: http status 404: the requested url does not exist on the server)". I have uninstalled and reinstalled media center, have cleared out the ehome directory, and have tried running mc update from command prompt. I am at a loss as what to do next.

Win 7 Hangs

I have been using windows 7 rc1 for a while now and it's been very stable until last week. I had not made any changes to software or hardware. I was watching a dvd as i normally would and the computer just froze. There was no response from the keyboard or the mouse and no error message. I rebooted and went to the event log and found no error message generated. So i tried again to finish my dvd and after a few minutes it locked again. I then rebooted and tried the built in dvd player in windows media center. It had a terrible lag so that was no option.

After that i tried another dvd software that i had installed but never used and again the computer freezes. Something else i've noticed but just been dealing with is that any audio or video that i watch or listen to will jitter every so often with some static sound. It happens in any program i use to listen to audio or watch video. Don't know if that's related but has anyone else had any similar problems with system hangs and no related error message to trace the problem?  Btw, i had to dig out my previous drive with vista installed and put that back in the computer to continue my normal pc use.

Win 7 Hangs Up

I upgraded from xp to win7, got everything running smoothly and then a week later upgraded the motherboard, processor and memory. Then the problems started. I have updated every driver known to man and all looks well in the device manager. However after a smooth boot the os hangs up sometimes 10 minutes later sometimes 1 minute after boot with no activity at all. At times i can go to the internet for a few minutes and browse at times it hangs immediately.

I am running with a selective startup with only necessary services running. Makes no difference. I can view the event log and get a " the computer browser service depends on the server service which failed to start because of the following error: the dependency service or group failed to start. " But i am not sure if that is the cause or the result. Safe mode works ok.

File Deletion Hangs

I've been having problems with my norton ghost backups, which hang at the very end of the backups, preventing their completion. But now, i think it's not a ghost problem: frequently when i delete a set of files using windows explorer, it's hanging at the end as well. This makes me think it's a deeper problem within the windows file system software. To be explicit, within windows explorer i select a set of files and then right mouse click and delete.

A dialog comes up to track the deletions, file by file. The deletion takes place (they are removed from the display of files), yet the dialog remains - and it will remain indefinitely. I'm suspecting that this failure to cleanly complete simple file operations is related to my hangs in ghost backups.

Win 7 Hangs After Update

I have the same problem - safe mode, no problem, clean boot won't give you any help - i have already been down this road - this seems to be an issue with the last updates from ms - you will probably also experience loss of usb ports once the device that occupies the port is disconnected.
I have experienced the same problem on two (2) identical machines (hp pavilion dv7, i7, w7 home premium, 6gb ram, 640gb hd, nvidia geforce) - the problem was so annoying, especially the usb problem, that i reinstalled the os and all the programs only to encounter the problem again.

I returned the machine and exchanged it for the same machine - and now the same problems again.
This is a ms problem - clean boot won't tell you anything - just have to wait for ms to realize the problem and issue a patch.

Update Dialog Hangs Up

Yesterday in the middle of the working day my computer restarted and i lost one program i was working on (i already re-coded again). I'm thinking it might be automatic windows update. So, after that i was trying to bring this dialog and adjust my settings to install updates manually.

However, every time i try to bring this dialog and do something, it hangs and i have to kill it using task manager. Do you know what should i do? Could it be some virus instead? I'm using ms essentials as my antivirus program. Recently i ran a manual scan and it found 3 trojan (removed). I'm not sure how did they get there in the first place. Anyway, do you know what should i do in this situation?

Print Spooler Hangs

I have 2 laptops, upgraded old one to win 7, new one came with it installed. Using several different printers, from time to time the spooler will freeze up. My only solution so far has been to open services, and stop the spooler, i then have to reboot to clear the problem. Then things work fine for a while then it hangs up again. Either laptop, any printer, direct or networked. Doesn't matter which combo i use so i can only conclude the problem lies with win 7.

Update At Shutdown Hangs Up

Os: win 7 home premium 64 bit oem installed on zt 1. 5t desktop
Service pack level:  do not know. Machine is 2 weeks old and have seen 3-5 successful updates at shutdown time.

Few weeks ago bought a quad-core zt machine that came with win 7 home premium 64 bit os and a 1. 5t hd. Have been very happy with the unit, and have seen some 3 or 4 updates at shutdown with the usual banner "please do not power off or unplug your computer; installing update 1 of x. "  So, would happily head to bed and could hear the unit shut down in five minutes or so.

Not so last evening (fri, feb 26). Saw the update screen at 11 pm, and still there as of 10 am this morning. Yes, can see some sporadic hard disk activity, and the spinning cursor.

Any idea what may be happening, and more importantly how can i break out of the update, bring to a place where i can continue my work?

Btw, have two other win 7 systems that did not have the update last evening: a netbook running home premium 32bit, and a dell desktop running win 7 ultimate. All three are on a home win 7 network.

My computer started out as a vista machine. When i got my free upgrade to windows 7 64bit i started to have a hange problem with in minutes of boot up. I traced the problem to only happen when the computer has internet access. I further traced the problem to windows update as when this is disabled the computer no longer hangs. With update disabled i am not able to check for or download any updates from the microsoft site. How can i figure out what is wrong or what do i need to do next to fix this?

Agp440 Hangs During Boot

I recently rebuilt my pc and installed windows 7. Things seemed to be working ok with my old nvidia graphics card but it was only 128mb and i wanted to upgrade. I replaced it with an ati radeon 1gb agp card and now it hangs when booting agp440.sys. It'll sit there for about 25 minutes and then complete booting. Is there anyway of disabling this file from booting? Seems it was a big issue for xp and people could disable it in services, but its not listed in windows 7. Pentium 4 prescott 3. 2 ghz; 3gb ddr pc3200; asus p4c800-e deluxe, hsi radeon hd4650 1gb ddr3

Win 7 Hangs Randomly

Finally got a clean custom install of win 7 ultimate to a formatted partition h: on drive 0. Dual boot with working windows vista on the c: drive. Windows 7 boots and occasionally works for a period of time, accesses the internet fine, allows me to install a program, sometimes read email, but randomly freezes with a strange screen display, vertical lines over the existing display.

Eventually the screen becomes completely blurred with odd patterns and remains that way until i reboot. There is no single program that fails consistently. Word processor, and ie fail at different times. Noticed several times it occurred when entering data like password etc. , But at times it fails with a mouse cursor movement. When i boot to windows vista, thankfully it works flawlessly without failures so i can actually accomplish my work. Hoping for some help with this the win7 freeze problem.
