Pc Does Not Respond After Waking From Sleep Mode

This is beginning to happen more frequently. I put my computer to sleep, and 5 minutes within logging and using anything (ex.google chrome or itunes), the application freezes. I then click alt-control-delete, but it never pops up (usually works). Then i go the taskbar and it shows a "explorer.exe not responding. ". Then the whole computer just freezes, and then only thing i can do is hold down the power button for a force shutdown. My wife's computer is also windows 7, and it always works (doesn't "not respond") when she wakes it from sleep. So its something with my computer. Is there any solution for this?

Ipv6 Does Not Work After Waking Up From Sleep Mode

I had a problem about ipv6 on windows 7 for a long time. I have a ipv6 & ipv4 dual stack network. Every time i wake up my computer, the ipv6 cannot work. The appearance is that i can't ping and access ipv6 website. But after some research, i realize that only the dns part is broken. When i ping the ipv6 site like ipv6.google.com, it tells me it find no host, but if i use nslookup, i can find the ipv6 address. And the following are my tries:

Ping ipv6.google.com - not work
Ping 2a00:1450:8001::68 - does work, the ip is the ipv6.google.com address
Ping -6 ipv6.google.com - does work like the above

Alps Touch Mouse Acts Strange After Waking From Sleep Mode

Whenever my new laptop wakes from sleep mode, the touch mouse enters some wacky mode and thinks that it is in magnify mode or some other strange mode. If i can manage to open the mouse control panel screen, i can sometimes reset the mouse. Also, if i force a reboot, the mouse works just fine.

I already returned my first hp pavillion dm3 computer to office depot thinking that there was a problem with the touch mouse, but my new computer does exactly the same thing. I have installed windows live and microsoft reader and firefox since bringing the new computer home yesterday. Plus whatever popped up on my screen asking me to update it (norton, i think, did an update).

I have 14 days (13 now) to get this problem fixed before i have to make a decision of whether or not to return this laptop from where i purchased it to get my money back. I hope someone can help. Before exchanging the laptop last time, i tried re-installing the alps touch mouse, but that did not help. From reading about windows 7, it appears that there are a lot of problems with computers waking from sleep.

My current theory is that there is a software conflict. The last time this happened, however, i had closed all of my open programs before closing my laptop lid, forcing it to go to sleep. That leads me to believe that if it is a software conflict, then it is with some system software running in the background.

It is almost as though the mousepad thinks that i am using two fingers to control it. So that the magnify button comes up. I have found that if i do use two fingers when it is acting this way, that i can fool it long enough to open the mouse control screen to force a reset. Once i do that, everything works fine again until it goes to sleep and wakes up again.

Freezes After Waking Up

I would allow my computer to go to sleep overnight and after waking up, it would freeze within the first 3 minutes. It would appear to be normal after waking up and i would be about to search the internet, use my instant messaging, etc. And suddenly the mouse and keyboard would stop working. The hdd light would be on but no movements. I had it on for 30 minutes trying to fix the problem and it wouldn't work.

Had to turn off the computer to get it to restart. The boot screen would read, resuming windows and after start up i would get an alert that the certain programs were corrupt and i needed to run chkdsk and it wouldn't allow me to use my browser or start my antivirus.
 
Once i restarted and ran chkdsk, everything works fine. I just don't know why it is happening repeatedly and is there a fix?

Waking Computer To Print

I've read all the topics on sleeping and waking i could find but nothing is like my problem. I have two hp computers running w7 through a wired linksys router. One computer (a) is connected to my usb printer. I have shared the printer and if (a) is awake i have no problem printing from computer (b). If (a) is asleep the printer doesn't print. I've read about wake on lan (wol) and have played with the interface adapter settings on (a). If magic packet is unchecked, then computer will try to go to sleep but will wake soon after.

I suspect there is some traffic from the router (maybe) that wakes the computer. If magic packet is checked, computer will not wake when i try to print to it, so i have to run upstairs and wake the computer to get it to print. How do i get (b) to send the magic packet when it prints so that (a) is awakened? Is it something i need to do in (b)'s setup? Is it something i need to set in windows? Or in each application (word, excel)?Or am i trying to use the magic packet incorrectly and really need to keep it unchecked and do something else to my network?

Touchpad Keys Do Not Work When Pc Waking Up From Sleeping Mode

The keys (including touchpad) of the hp notebook with windows 7 do not work when pc waking up from the "sleeping mode". If you plug in the external mouse in the usb port, cursor moves.

1 - keys of the pc ( including the touchpad) stop responding when notebook wakes up from any mode. If you just connect external mouse, the cursor start moving again over the screen. The problem disappears after the pc is switched off and then switched on i.e. After reloading the windows 7 operating system.

2 - this problem exists from the day one when the operating system was installed.

3 - internal win7 diagnostic system doesn't show, as far as i understand, any missing driver.

Please explain the reason and the detailed algorithm to fix this problem.

I even went into reg like nvidia told me to do and removed there keys as nvidia was uninstalled no go it will not leave forcing me to reinstall the beta and fix it that whey.

Back To Vista

I installed win 7 upgrade over windows vista. But unfortunately not very well. All programs are gone, but i still have the "windows. Old" folder and now i want to get back to vista. I've found the following instruction: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971760/de , but when i type in the command "move /y. " After pressing the enter button, it says "access is denied" and i do not know why.

How can i get full access for it? The net admin is active, but that shouldn't influence the commands because i start the "repair-program" from the dvd.

Downgrading Back To Vista

A while back i used my copy of windows 7 home premium upgrade on my mother's computer. In retrospect i should have looked into how many different computers i could install onto but i had heard so many things that i was under the belief it was two instead of one. Months later my mother calls me to inform me that her windows is no longer working and the cd-key i gave her is no good. Her computer came with vista pre-installed and i don't have a disk available for her. The key for it is still located on a sticker but i'm not sure if there is a way to downgrade without the vista disk. She needs this computer for work and bills so it would be much appreciated to receive a speedy answer.

How To Turn Hardware Acceleration Back On ?

Ok, i just installed windows 7 professional 64-bit on my laptop. Relevant specs are as follows:

Processor: intel core 2 duo t9800 @2. 93ghz
Ram: 4. 00 gb ddr3
Graphics card: ati mobility radeon hd 4670 w/ 1. 0 gb ddr3 dedicated graphics memory

Even though i had a few problems with windows vista home premium 64-bit (what i had on the laptop before i upgraded), i never had any problems playing games or other 3d applications because of my gpu's hardware acceleration. For example, i could run google earth with my processor never going above 15% usage.

When i installed windows 7, i was very impressed at how much faster it was than windows vista. It was very noticeable in everything from how fast it started up and shut down to how fast it loaded all the files in a folder. It was almost like getting a brand new computer.

That is, until i fired up celestia, a free 3d program that renders the solar system and about 2. 1 million other objects in a 3d model. I had never had any problems with this when i used windows vista; it ran perfectly smoothly and my cpu never even topped 12%. Much to my dismay, it started dropping frames left and right and the orbits of moons were popping in and out as i got closer to them. I checked the task manager and my cpu was hitting 89%! And this was despite the fact that the amount of ram in use was almost 300mb less than it had in windows vista.google earth ran with similar numbers.

I did some poking around and i discovered a very nasty fact: my hardware acceleration was turned off and there was no way for me to turn it on. Ati's control program for windows 7 doesn't even include an option for it. I also checked the directx settings and they are all enabled to max settings. Still no dice.

My question to you is: how do i turn the hardware acceleration back on? Can i turn it back on? If not, i'll have no choice but to go back to windows vista, because without hw acceleration, there's no way i'm going to be able to play any games more demanding than doom 3 or counterstrike if i can't even run celestia without problems.

Win 7 Rc - How To Switch Back To Vista?

I installed win 7 on an separate internal hard. But when i started my computer, i cannot boot into my win vista ultimate on the c drive. Win 7 just took over. I have all of my programs on the cdrive. I don't want to use the win 7 rc and have it go dead on me when it expires. Does anyone know how i can switch back to my win vista, of which i had no problems with ever? I cannot afford to put out $219 for the upgrade or $350. 00 for the full version. Times are hard right now for a lot of people and microsoft dares to charge this amount?

How To Get Classic Folder Icons Back?

How can i get back the folder icons from windows xp? I need my folder icons to be flat square folders, which i can customize with one photo from inside the folder shown on the front? These open folders sitting sideways with documents and pictures falling out, are driving me crazy. I work with thousands of photos every day and need a quick simple way to identify what is inside each folder. Now i have to spend hours opening each folder and looking through the photos. Such a waste of time. Why is such a simple folder icon gone in windows 7? I need it back!

Rolling Back Operating Systems

I just discovered that by upgrading from vista to windows 7, i created a problem with my hp dv9000 laptop. So now if i want to ever be able to use wireless again i must uninstall windows 7 and go back to vista. Can anyone either provide me a way to roll back the os or to solve the problem without changing os. The problem is odd, i did the same thing to my work laptop and i am still able to use my wireless air card, and with my home laptop i am unable to get online with any wireless. It seems as if the system no longer searches for wireless connections, any feed back is most welcomed. Anyone with hp now know they refuse to develop drivers to support windows 7.

How To Downgrade Win 7 Back To Xp Pro?

I think win 7 is a more stupider version than vista. I want to downgrade back to my xp pro. I just bought my dell laptop less than 30 days and i have an equivalent dose of 60-days headache. Most zip file cannot open. All exe. File cannot open and many icons that is user-friendly in xp are gone. Why are u guys punishing us like that? Sure, i can go google for solutions but do we want to do that everytime some nightmare like that crops up while we're doing our work. Half way got to go google for solutions. I mean c'mon and what's more frustrating is still a lot of downloads or softwares, paid and free (esp) still don't quite accomodate win 7 platform that's why i keep getting error message / file cannot open (as mentioned above). Pls tell me can i get my downgrade back from microsoft? I believed i read in some publications u guys do allow downgrading for win 7 (sorry forgot to bookmark coz at that time i'm still wth xp pro so don't see the need to).

Computer Does Not Turn Back On After Standby

This doesn't seem like a windows problem, but it's only happened since i upgraded from xp to 7. Basically any time i turn the computer off or it enters standby it won't resume right away. When i press the power button the drive and fan spin up for a couple seconds before shutting down again. Nothing appears on the screen. After 15-20 minutes the problem disappears and the computer resumes as if nothing happened. Has anyone heard of this happening before? The computer is a dell precision m4400 running windows 7 64bit ultimate.

Pin Programs Back To Start Menu

On my old computer i had windows xp. If you dragged a program from the start menu to the desktop it just created a short cut. The program was still listed on the start menu under "programs". In windows 7 when i drag a program from the start menu onto the desktop it is now gone from my start menu all together. And if you decide to delete the shortcut from your desktop you're screwed. The program obviously still exists but i have to open it by different means. Am i missing something obvious here? Also, windows 7 does not allow you to right click a program and create a shortcut on the desktop anymore? Only taskbar?

Emails Sent Bounce Back To Sender Occasionally

Most recently it has been a vip who notified me (in an email) that they were having trouble sending me mail, and that some messages were returning to them. I also occasionally get emails stating that they are bots from mailing lists, probing my address or something because newsletters they have been trying to send haven't got to me apparently. This could potentially be a large problem if the sender doesn't try to send the message again, and if that sender is willing to offer me a job, for instance.

My thoughts are that maybe there is some way to clean or flush or do some kind of procedure to test the account or reset some bands (i'm just making up phrases at the moment).

Reset Back To Admin Account In Xp Mode

I have set the admin acct to limited user in xp mode, is there a way to reset to admin? I set the xp mode user to limited for security reasons, only to realize later that it was the admin account that i had changed. As a limited user i can't run my xp software because it requires the user to be a power user or administrator. I'm looking for a way to get an admin acct back in xp mode. Or, if i need to reinstall xp mode how can i save my data? I would need a fairly detailed explanation as i am new to windows 7.

Win 7 Upgrade - Lost Ability To Toggle Back To Xp

On a new disk, i installed my windows xp, i then started to install windows 7 home premium 32 bit. There was not enough room on the partition of the disk, so after resizing i tried to install windows 7 home premium 64 bit, which was successful, however, i lost the ability to toggle back to xp. I would now like to know that if i upgrade to windows 7 ultimate or professional, will i be able to use xp software without the need to purchase another edition of it. Alternatively, if i decide to uninstall windows 7 or reformat the hard drive to reinstall xp, is it easy to get my activation codes back again.
