Fax Sending Problem

I have been trying to send a fax for a long time now and it constantly says that the call had not been answered. I have looked over everything i could find on the internet and it does not seem that i am doing anything wrong. I have uninstalled / reinstalled windows fax and scan a couple of times but it seems to do no good. I still get the same message. One thing i noticed when reading the forums is that if i were to uninstall windows fax and scan and i were to reinstall it again , trying to send a fax for the first time, the fax wizard would pop up and lead me through the setup of the fax.

This wizard never comes up after the very first time that i set it up. I dont think i did anything wrong during the fax setup. The only thing that i entered was my area code. When i try to send a fax i hear the dialing tone and the fax tone for quite some time but in the end i get the same problem that i have described.

Fax And Scan Full Setup

Windows 7 fax and scan. I am still having trouble with windows fax and scan. When i had windows xp i used windows fax console as the fax software. I simply scanned the fax message into a word document and used the fax wizard to send off the fax. I wish to do a similar thing in windows 7 fax and scan but i always end up with attachments which i do not understand.

Is this attachment sequence the new thing - i am certainly not used to it? I am also unable to send any fax though the fax settings are correct. When i try to send a fax reference is made to a fax server. I have set up the program to be used with an external fax modem - a fax server should not be involved. The fax printer present in the printers folder in windows xp is missing in windows 7.
Do i need this ?

Automatically Answer Certain Fax Numbers

I setup my laptop to send/receive faxes just for those times where i might need to send a fax and i don't have time to run anywhere. However at the moment my fax number along with my home phone number are exactly the same, what i would like to do is to have contacts with fax numbers and be able to select which ones to automatically answer if they call. This way i don't have to worry about certain faxes from people and also not have issues if someone calls to talk to me and for it to go to the answering machine.

I know this isn't the ideal situation but i don't want to get a separate line just for 1 or 2 faxes every month.

Fax From Scanner Yields Black Image

Set up: epson 500 perfection photo scanner, win 7 ultimate 64, 8 g ram† intel i860/intel dp 55kg motherboard. I just transferred the scanner from my vista ultimate setup where it worked in all modes.
Under win 7 all modes work except when i use the file-new-fax from scanner mode. The scanner tif image is just a black page. If i use the new scan menu, the tif image is perfect. Under the new scan mode jpg's are fine. I can send a fax by using the new scan menu, and then the forward as fax menu.
I reviewed all settings from my vista setup but cannot find a key to what setup is different.

Fax Stopped Working For Sending And Receiving

This is a new higher end windows 7 intel based i5 computer with 8gb of memory. I have been using the windows fax and scan successfully before. When i went to receive a fax that area was grayed out. I lost all of my history of previous faxes. The name with fax number directory was still there. I manually copied the few listings. I also found i could not send faxes. It seems that in the print directory the print to fax name looks different. But i can't be sure. It now says " fax, microsoft shared fax driver" .

I confirmed that the fax is operational and the wires are connected properly by going online via a dial up network. So, i would think it's in the fax program software.

I tried to remove and reinstall the program, but in the control panel under remove programs i couldn't find it. Also, i'm not sure where to get the program to reinstall. I do have the windows 7 ultimate disk available. I tried going to "tools", then "fax settings". The blue circle circled and the window said, "not responding". Then it stopped. In other words, i cannot access the settings.

Saving Scan File As Date And Time Using Win 7 Fax And Scan

A friend has a brother 8840d all-in-one printer. He used to be able to use the scan function on the printer and send the scan in .jpg to the computer running xp with a unique name that had the date and time embedded in the name ie: 111709214200001.jpg.

He doesn't have the windows 7 driver to use the scan function as above but the windows 7 fax and scan viewer will let him scan. Question: is there a way to default win7 fax and scan to save a scan with a name similar to above that would have the date incorporated? I now saves it as img01, img02. I am still running xp so i don't have the ability to check.

Win 7 Wont Recognize Second Monitor

Since the installation of windows 7 64-bit, i have not been able to connect my flat screen to my computer as a second monitor. I know how i am supposed to go about connecting the 2nd monitor and i had done it numerous times using windows vista 32-bit. When i right click on the desktop and go into screen resolution, it shows me a picture of a screen with a 1 in it and it has two buttons beside it; detect and identify. I assume if everything was working the way it should, a second monitor picture would appear when i press detect, but instead nothing happens.

I have a dell inspiron 1720, a panasonic 52in plasma, and i am using an s-video cable to connect the two. What i have read online suggests that it might be my video card driver's problem, but i dont know how to go about fixing this, if indeed it is the problem. Im not sure exactly which video card i have, and my computer just says its the standard vga graphics adaptor.

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Hard Drive

I am building two new computers and purchased two oem licenses of windows 7 home premium 64-bit. Both computers are using a biostar ta890gxb hd motherboard, amd phenom ii x6 1055t cpu, lg gh24 multi-optical drive, and 4 gb of kingston ddr3 1333 ram. The first computer was recycling a maxtor stm3320620as hard drive. This had been recently reformatted to ntfs, so essentially starting over from scratch. The second computer was using a brand new hitachi hd30500idk hard drive.

Upon booting up the first computer, i would get to the screen where i am to choose what hard drive to install on, but none are listed. The bios does show the hard drive properly. I tried going into advanced section to load drivers, but it can't find any drivers for the sata controller. I then followed advice i found when searching for a solution and i found how to get to the command line.

I am able to go to the c: drive. I was able to re-format the c: drive. After it was finished, i tried to go back in and it still does not recognize any hard drives. After a while, i gave up and tried working on the second computer. Upon booting up the second computer, i got to the screen for choosing the hard drive and it identified the hitachi hd. I was able to install the operating system and everything has been exactly what i was expecting it to be. S stated, they are identical except for the hard drives.

I have double checked all my connections numerous times on the first computer but everything checks out fine. It seems odd that i can access the hard drive in command line and in the bios, but the windows 7 installer doesn't recognize it. Any advice besides going out and purchasing a new hard drive?

Win7 Will Not Recognize Raid 0 Array

I can not get windows 7 to recognize my raid array.

To begin, this is a fresh install on an asus m4a78td-v evo m/b, amd phenom ii x4 955 3200 mhz, 4 gbs ddr3 memory, 2 western digital 2 tb wd20eads-00s2b0 sata 3g, and a benq dw1625 dvd burner. Nothing is over clocked and using stock video and sound.

When i install with a raid 0, 128 kb stripe block, fast init on, gigabyte boundary off, cache mode write through, and no use of the drivers for the raid array for the mother board as windows 7 ultimate x64, i can get to the point of the first re-boot and get a message of:†windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation. To install windows, restart the installation. If i restart, i get the same message.

Same setup, but this time i use the motherboard raid drivers downloaded from asus , ahcix64s. Inf, i get an error message of windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300001. So i partition the 3725. 9 gb raid to 1-100 mb system partition, 2047. 9 gb primary partition, and 1677. 9 gb unallocated and get the same message for each of the 3 drives as above. If i extend the 2nd partition of 2047. 9 gb, i get the message of: failed to extend the selected partition. [Error: 0x80042468].

Finally, if i delete the raid array and change the bios setting for the sata port 1-6 to ide, the install will complete, but without the raid 0 array. Please, what am i doing wrong or what do i need to get the raid 0 array?†

Win 7 Wont Recognize Cd-rom

Ok, hereís the skinny.

I have a dell something.

Intel® pentium® 4 cpu 3. 20 ghz 3. 19ghz
3. 00 gb
32-bit operating system
Windows 7 home premium

My problem is that i am unable to use my cd-rom.

About a year ago my dc-rom took a dump and stopped opening so i just never used it. Well, about 2 months ago i upgraded from xp to win 7. The other day i needed to run an cd and decided to put in a new cd-rom. Took the old out and put the new in. Problem is that even though it is plugged in (long skinny data cable and what appears to be a 3-pring power plug) it wonít work. The cd-rom opens and closes but win 7 wonít recognize it.

Trouble shooting 101: yes, the cd-rom works. I took it out of this out of my last dell pc that it came in. The rom is a sonycd-rw crx216e. After discovering that it wonít work in this pc i put it back in the old dell. Plugged it in, tossed in a cd and bam! Works just fine. Took it back out of that old pc and put it in this pc and nothing. It should be noted the other pc is running xp.

So now iím like ***. So, i decided to plug in the old cd-rom †that came w/ this pc that is broken and reboot. And win 7 still wonít recognize this one either.

Now i donít know when i lost control of my cd-rom because i havenít used it in so long. I donít know if i lost it after installing win 7 or what. I do know i canít get it to work now.

Iíve tried reading forums and canít seem to find a fix. I even tried to run the built in win 7 troubleshooting program and it sayís it is not detecting an optical something or another drive. When i open my device manager it does not show any cd-rom installed.

I even tried going to dell and downloading the latest drivers for the rom, which was last updated in 2004, and running those. End result, nothing.

Anyone got any ideas?

Blu Ray Drive Does Not Recognize Disc

All of the firmware is up to date and the cyberlinke blu-ray advisor program says my hardware passes all of the tests for basic playback. But i can't even get to trying to play a disc when windows doesn't even recognize that there is a blu-ray disc in the drive. Any ideas?

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Usb Drive & Ipod

This has been really bothering me. Windows 7 works perfectly with my old programs after my upgrade. Only when i plug in my usb external drive and ipod touch, ipod video. It does not recognize it. I tried device manager and looking for it there, it does not show up. When i go on safe mode, "usb mass storage" shows up but i cannot update cuz it keeps saying it already has the best driver installed. When i look at "properties" it says there is no driver installed.

With my ipods, i tried stopping and restarting ipod service, apple mobile device, itunes. I tried reinstalling a newly downloaded copy of itunes at least 4 times. That does not work.

There is a registry fix for this on windows xp titled "windows xp cannot detect a usb flash drive, an apple ipod, or an external hard disk drive" but does not have one for windows 7. The xp fix even has a download fix for fixing the registry. Is there one also for windows 7. I am going through the trouble of installing virtual pc and xp mode just to use my devices.

Win7 Doesn't Recognize Iphone

I have a brand new laptop running the 64-bit windows 7. After installing itunes, when i plug in my first gen iphone, it triggers itunes to open, but then immediately causes itunes to freeze up. If i open itunes and then plug in the iphone, same thing - itunes still freezes. When i unplug the iphone, itunes unfreezes. Also, itunes works fine with my ipod. I've done quite a bit of troubleshooting already, following recommendations found on this site and on apple's site, including the suggestions found here:

http://social. Answers.microsoft.com:80/forums/en-us/w7hardware/thread/31631537-67ab-468b-810b-e083d9d726aa

Specifically, i have reinstalled itunes and related apple software, removed all pictures from the iphone so my laptop wouldn't recognize it as a camera, and made sure the computer is using the correct apple device driver. Nothing has worked. Also fyi, when i plug the phone in without itunes installed and look for the phone on device manager, it shows up as "apple iphone" under "portable devices. "†

Once i install itunes and the correct device driver, however, it shows up as "apple mobile device usb driver" under the "usb controllers" heading. Nothing shows up under "portable devices, " "imaging devices, " or any other heading. I've now spent hours trying to solve this. Any advice?

Win 7 Wont Recognize Raid Arrays

I have constructed a new computer with compatible hardware. I purchased windows 7 home premium and it doesn't recognize the two raid arrays i have setup in both the bios and raid configurator. I have installed all of the latest drivers , firmware, and updates available for every piece of hardware and windows.

I have two raid arrays setup: (2) 250 gb in raid 1 (for windows 7) and (3) 1 tb in raid 5. When booted up, windows only sees the first 250 gb drive. When i enter disk manager, it sees all five drives, but has the second 250 gb and all three 1 tb drives as independent drives and are inactive. I can activate them, but they still remain independent and not as a raid array. The bios and the configurator see two drives: (1) at 250 gb and (1) at 1. 8 tb (which is correct in the raid setup).

Do i need to buy a higher version of windows 7? (Professional or ultimate) or am i missing something in windows?

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Belkin Usb Adapter

I performed a registry cleanup on my computer last monday using norton 360 with mixed results. The major problem i'm having is that i can't seem to connect to my belkin wireless usb adapter anymore.
I did a system restore, and an uninstall/re-install of the latest belkin driver software. The adapter does manage to connect on occasion, but returns to its inoperable state if i put the computer to sleep or try to do a reboot.

If i try a clean install, w7†typically tries to connect to the adapter but then it either says that the device isn't recognized or says there is no device at all. When i run a diagnostic, w7 recognizes the problem but it figures that i'm trying to connect through my ethernet cable and not via usb. I can't seem to make it point to the usb connection. Am i missing anything? Is there a manual fix?†
