Command Prompt Does Not Display Lan Settings


For a college assignment i have to go to the command prompt and type in 'ipconfig/all'. From there i should be able to see the host name, mac address, default gateway, subnet mask, etc, however. This information does not show. Its either all zeros (in the case of the address)  or its just not there at all. I can go into the network connections and view these details there. But they will not show in the command prompt. I spent 40 minutes on the phone with geeksquad just for the guy to tell me "i dont know what to tell you". Does anyone have any ideas?  This is rather troublesome considering a lot of my work has to consist of accurate screen shots of the command prompt. Thanks in advance!

Svchost Command Prompt On Login

Whenever i log in, i see a command prompt for install\svchost.exe pop up and run for a few seconds before disappearing. This did not happen in the past and i don't remember making any changes to the system recently. This appears to have no noticeable effects on the system. What is this and why did it start happening? Is it anything to worry about?

Cannot Boot In Safe Mode Or Command Prompt

Not sure what the problem is but every mode i try booting in gets a black screen and the brightness of the screen is dimmer however i do get a mouse pointer that i can move around freely. I have an assumption that its a video error and regucure probably messed something up while i was trying to repair broken registry. Currently in kuwait by the way and both safe mode and command prompt is the same way the only thing i seem to be able to use is the f2 setup screen which does not seem to help at all either resetted the settings to default but no progress. Wish i could find a way to fix this without taking cash from my pocket or sending it to a place to reset it to factory settings.

Display Settings Lost After Reboot

I run multiple displays on my ati radeon hd4600 graphics card, but am forced to reconfigure it each time after rebooting. This is to say that rebooting resets me to a single display. I verified through device manager that i have the latest driver available. I also downloaded and installed the latest drivers from the amd/ati site; this did not fix the problem.

I verified that the problem is not specific to my account, as the same thing happens with a test account i created. I ran msconfig and tried "diagnostic startup" (no startup items or system service) and this did not fix the problem.

Display Power Settings Are Not Saved

Power settings won't stay as saved - display setting always reverts to 3 minutes after re-boot. Maybe i don't yet understand how the new windows 7 works, but i can't seem to set my power settings and have them stay there. I've set them to turn off the display after 15 minutes and put the computer to sleep at 30 minutes. But when i re-boot the machine, the display setting always reverts from 15 minutes to 3 minutes. Is there any way to save these settings and have them stay as saved?

Saving Display Settings And Monitor Position

I currently am running two nvidia graphics cards with 4 displays. I have an 8800gtx running my primary and my tv in the other room. These two displays are cloned and used strictly as a primary display. I then am running a gt220 with my other two displays as extended desktops. One on the left of the primary and one on the right. I have the displays set up correctly and working in the display settings but when i restart, the extended monitors are not oriented to split the main screen. So i have to go back in to the display settings every time and change their positions. I have the latest nvidia drivers installed.

Once again

Extended - primary / primary - extended
 
(Gt220)      (8800gtx)           (gt220)

I just need a way to save this setup so that i dont have to change it every time i startup or restart. I wouldn't even mind if i could have a script that i could run on startup that would set it to these positions.

Edit Command Is Not Recognized As An Internal Or External Command

Getting this message when using edit via command prompt - 'edit' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. I've seen where edit.exe and/or edit.com should be installed in windows/system32. No "edit" files. So what can one use to edit files via the command prompt in windows 7?

Repeated Prompt For Update

My computer isn't updating daily like it should. The only update offer that i receive is for kb890830. I've checked my update history and it shows that the update has been successful, but it continues everyday. I've also tried deselected the update so the prompting will discontinue, but even then, it's still giving me problems. I filed an incident report and was told to do the following (see below) - which i did, but even that didn't help. Can anyone offer some advice? 

It's getting very annoying! This issue could be also caused if the specific registry branch is corrupted. At this time, please refer to the following steps to troubleshoot the issue. Step 1: backup the registry. As we need to modify some registry keys to troubleshoot this issue, let’s perform the following steps to backup the current registry first. 1. Click start, click run, type regedit, and click ok. 2. Select my computer (the root node) in the left pane, click export under the file menu, choose "all" under export range, select desktop in the save in box, type backup in file name, and then click save.

Please note: the backup file is on the desktop and named backup. Reg. We can simply restore the registry by double-clicking the backup. Reg file. After we have completed the troubleshooting and the issue has been resolved, we can delete this file. 3. Close the registry editor. Step 2: restore the relevant registry key.

1. Click start, run, type: notepad c:fix. Reg and press enter. Choose yes when you are prompted.

2.copy the following commands and then paste them into the opened notepad window. Windows registry editor version 5. 00 [hkey_local_machinesoftwaremicrosoftremovaltools] 
[Hkey_local_machinesoftwaremicrosoftremovaltoolsmrt]
"Eula"=dword:00000001"version"="73d860ec-4829-44dd-a064-2e36fcc21d40"
"Guid"="9daa3924-5cc7-4e01-a35c-9f83f2f35c3b" 

3. After pasting the above commands, please close the notepad window. Choose yes when you are prompted to save the file.

4. Click start, run, type: c:fix. Reg and press enter to run the commands we have pasted.

5. A dialog box will pop-up saying "are you sure you want to add the information in c:fix. Reg to the registry?". Click yes on this dialog box6. Reboot the machine.

7. After the machine reboots, please install the latest version of kb890830 again by the following direct link. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?Familyid=ad724ae0-e72d-4f54-9ab3-75b8eb148356&displaylang=en

Keep Receiving Prompt For Backing Up Encryption Keys

Backup your file encryption keys my windows 7 ultimate laptop is prompting me to backup my file encryption keys. When i run "cipher /u /n" from a run as admin command line, the result is "the system cannot find the file specified"

Why would i be being prompted out of the blue to backup encryption keys?

( In the tray, there is a "solve pc issues" flag. It says to schedule a system backup. )

( Also, i downloaded the source code of a web programming book. After that download the encrypt your keys prompt started. Those folders and files display in green text in windows explorer. Normally with zip files i copy them to another directory to unzip em. That does not happen with these files. Are these green files encrypted somehow?

Prompt Window Wont Pop Up On Top

When i am doing an install or upgrade, and a "prompt" window comes up, it does not come on top of my other windows. I realize the installation process has stopped and then i have to search through the bottom task bar and see where the prompt window is. For example, quicktime update was installing. I realized nothing else was happening. I minimized the screens one by one and found that it wanted me to shut down and click ok or cancel. I was not doing something at the time.

It just did not pop up on top of all the other windows. Is that a new setting with windows 7? I have worked on computers for 20+ years. I just got a new laptop that had windows 7. Before it was dos to windows vista that i've worked on. I have never had this problem. It always put the prompting window on top, i clicked on it to have it continue and it moved on!

Getting Wake On Lan To Work

I can't get wake on lan to work on either of two different windows 7 computers. In both cases, the bios supports wol, and i've set it to do so. I've configured both network adapters to allow computer to turn off hardware to save power/allow wake on lan/only wake up based on magic packet (setting the "allow computer to turn off hardware to save power" is required to let the other two options be set).
I've tried several different wol clients without success. I've tried turning off the windows firewall on the machine i'm using to generate the magic packets. That has no effect, either. What's the trick to getting wol to work under windows 7?

Not Enough Storage To Process Command

I have major problem trying to install a new wlan pci card. When i first inserted it into the pc i figured the pnp would take care of everything but no so i installed it manually from the cd, this didn't work either so i tried to install it using a driver from the manufacturers website. The installation finishes and everything but windows still goes to look for drivers and when it doesn't find any i go to look in the device manager and i get the following error code:the drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) (but they are)not enough storage is available to process this command.

To find a driver for this device, click update driver. I have about 2, 5gig ram free and about 590 gig of disk space free so that can't be it right?The things i have tried are:running the setup file as administrator, performing a disk cleanup, creating a new account with administrator acces, "telling" windows installer where to find the driver installer. Nothing works. Doe's anyone have any good ideas?

Display Problem With Display Driver When Multitasking

Just installed windows 7 home 64 bit a few weeks ago. I have been having a problem with my display driver. The screed flashes and turns black and then comes back on with a message in the lower right of the screen that reads "display driver stopped responding but has recovered". I have attempted to download and install a driver from amd web site, which is supposed to be the correct driver. When i attempt to install this driver my computer restarts because of a corrupted driver. Windows won't let me install the driver that is supposed to be the correct one. The graphics card is a ati hd3470. How do i fix?

Also i am missing other drivers for my fitjitsu lifebook a6220 like audio for hdmi output and many more. All was working fine with windows vista, now im missing several utility drivers i called fujitsu they say they are waiting on microsoft! If windows 7 was to be released all parties should have been sent a fix with all drivers not wait for the consumer to purchase windows 7 and have to deal with all the problems!

How To Turn Off Monitor Via Command Line ?

How can i turn off the monitor (i.e. , "Put it to sleep") via command line at the push of a button (or any other shortcut not requiring additional software)? I don't like it when, after a pause working on my pc, the screen turns itself off as set up per "power options" on the control panel. That's why i set the threshold fairly high.

Still, when i know i won't be needing the computer for a while, i want to save power and wish the sleep mode could be activated immediately. Turning the display off is not an option, since it has an integrated usb-hub - turning it off completely would disconnect any connected device. Usually though the computer still runs and might need the connected resources.

Ideally, by pushing a button (or starting a program or something), the display would immediately go into sleep mode.

On systems before vista and 7, iirc, executing a command along the lines of:

Rundll32.exe user32.dll, sendmessage (hwnd_broadcast, wm_syscommand, sc_monitorpower, 2);

Would do the trick. The dll would execute the command to put the monitor to sleep. One could create a shortcut or even integrate the command into a batch file, but unfortunately that doesn't seem to work on vista or 7.

Does anybody have an idea on how to do this on windows 7? I would very much try to avoid having to install any additional software to help me out. (There are quite some small applications around, even free ones, that promise to do just that, but i would like to avoid them if possible. And i cannot believe that something this basic that could be done on xp cannot be done anymore on 7!)

Lan Or Internet Setup Issues

I recently had to reinstall my os. I now have the basic xp professional with no sps. My problem is this: internet explorer will connect only if i power cycle my modem and even then it won't always do it. Even when it does it will only stay connected for 10-30 seconds then i'll lose connection. When that happens, my isp can still see my modem so i know the problem is between my computer and my modem. The only firewall i have is whatever the defaults are on xp professional. I am using a usb cable between the modem and computer because it won't pick up the modem through ethernet.

I know it is physically set up right unless it matters which usb you plug it into(it's currently plugged into the one right next to the ethernet port, i'm guessing that it has something to do with how my computer is communicating with my modem. Also, "obtain ip/dns automatically" are both selected. Basically, everything is at default.

Setting Lan / Wlan Priorities

I'm running w7-64 up-graded from vista on an hp hdx16-1200 connected through an hp dock to a netgear wireless router (cable connected from router to dock). If i have a lan connected and wifi enabled, the pc selects the slower wifi connection. Backwards to what i'd expect/want. When i turn wifi off, it selects the lan. Until i installed w7, the appropriate priority was set. Lan/wlan switching is not available in my bios. Hp is telling me that there was a setting in vista that ms eliminated in w7 and they have no recommendation for me other than turning wifi on and off.

Windows Network - Not Enough Storage Available To Process Command

Cannot connect to wireless external drive - "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" error and system running slow after update. I just updated my laptop to windows 7 and am having a few problems. One - everything seems to be running slower (i thought it was supposed to be faster!). More problematic is the fact that i can't access my external hard drive which is networked. It shows it, but when i click on it (it's listed as a z drive), the error "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" shows.

I installed win7 on my husband's laptop the other day with no troubles. His is able to still access the networked drive without a problem and is running great. So great, i went and got it for my laptop. My husband's laptop is running the 64 version of home premium and mine the 32. I used upgrade advisor and fallowed all the recommendations it gave. Including uninstalling itunes. I saved my itunes files to the external drive and can't access them.

I have a hp pavillion dv6000 running webroot security suite.
2. 0 gb ram, t5600 @ 1. 83 ghz, inter core 2cpu

Driver Problems - Lan Wireless Atheros

My wireless driver keeps disappearing. I have asked here once and got the reply to change my power management settings. I have done that and no luck. I lose the driver when i am not on the internet for a while. It totally disappears and i get a usb device not recognized and code 43. I have downloaded the driver from hp to my desktop and reinstall. It then asks if i want to upgrade and i answer yes and it tries but says it can't. After restarting several times, the new driver is finally recognized. I cannot work and need to know what to do. If no solution, can you tell me how i uninstall and reinstall vista without losing more.
