I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Not sure I follow you. When you format the USB drive it will be blanked.

You will need to install the drivers for your Netbook after so the wifi will work, yes.

Hello Sevenforums,

HARDWARE- I have Win 7,Home Premium,64bit,Dell Inspiron 15R N5010, Netgear DGN2200v3 wifi router+ADSL modem with USB port supporting various printers,drives & portable harddisc,1mbps broadband net connection.
SOFTWARE-utorrent 3.3

I want to save my torrent download data directly into pen drive/hard disc connected to usb port of wifi router without keeping my laptop on to monitor the downloads(without running utorrent software).
Please help me on this possibility, so that after programming this plan I can switch off my laptop and utorrent continues its download into pen drive/hard disc connected to usb port of wifi-router. Is it practically possible? I googled on this topic but didn't found any post or source on this matter.
Please reply with solution to fulfill this need.

Thank you.

Answer:Want to download torrent direct into wifi-router's usb port-pendrive.

Although it may be possible to access the Pen drive from outside your system dependent on opening the correct ports etc, torrents would require a program running in the router to do what you require, apart from utilising a PC as a router, you need the torrent software on your laptop to control the torrent download

Answer:USB pendrive problem

hum; sad to say, it may all be lost. XP has not been kind to USB Flash drives.
The typical user error is to unplug the device without using the Safe To Remove
feature OR its brother right-click-->menu-->Eject

ALL USB Flash devices are formated FAT32 so you might try mounting it on
some other kind of system (Mac / Linux)

Hi. . .

You can either create a partition and format giving you two partitons or re-format the pen drive in NTFS format. Right click on the area in the disk management box for options.

Question: Pendrive problem

Hello

Today, i bought myself a 512mb pendrive, i wanted to use it, windows recognized it as a removable drive without any problems, so i drag-n-dropped a file onto the drive window, but it froze at 30 percent

Ive tried rebooting but no change, the files were still freezing at 20-50 percent

Ive tried to disconnect, and then connect my pendrive, but this also didnt work

I went to a friend of mine to see if this is because of a badly manufactured pendrive, but at his place everything seems to work out ok

Now, im quite a newb to computers, so if you guys could hook me up with any solutions do this, id be very thankful

My system is winxp sp1
 

Answer:Pendrive problem

first i would say, get sp2 and all the updates, and you'r sure you have no bugs, i would try to copy one file using xp right click. can't get much in 512mb.but clean temps. defrag, run chkdisk, unplug it, restart, nothing else running, try again.

I use dell laptop N5010 with windows 7. I bought new pendrive sandisk cruzer blade. every  time when I connect it to my laptop it does not appear in my computer. But it appears in devices and printers in control panel. There it shows option of brows files. when i select that i get option of Removable disk H which is faint in color which means i can not use it. If i uninstall drivers of pen drive and reconnect it then it installs driver automatically and work properly. But next time same problem occurs.Each time i need to uninstall driver. this problem was not there with my transcend pendrive.Please guide me.

Answer:problem with working of pendrive

I usually remove all bundled autorun software that comes with pendrives. If you format it clean wiping out the sandisk autorun software that is wasting space on it anyways, you may be able to fix this.

Hello There,

I have a Toshiba Satellite L300-11F laptop, using XP Professional w/ SP3 on it.
It comes with 3 USB ports.
I have an older 1GB pendrive and just recently purchased a Maxell 16GB pendrive.
The pendrive works flawless at work, desktop pc but does not seem to work with the laptop.

I managed to use it only once, since then the laptop USB port simply does not recognize it.
I can tell it as the red led is not flashing and the pendrive can not be accessed.
I tried using the supplied Toshiba USB hub, no luck either

The 2 USB ports are ok as I use mouse, digital camera with it.
So is the 16GB pendrive, it works perfectly using other machines eg desktop pcs

Am I missing some USB drivers or whats the problem ?
Please help as I need to be able to use the unit on the laptop too.

Thank you!

HI,
There is a solution for Pendrive not detecting or usb drive not visible in My computer and device manager.
Recently I had a problem with Sandisk Cruzer Micro 4 gb pendrive. When I inserted the pen drive the system is detecting but it is not visible in Windoes explorer and device manager. But it is working in other computers. So it is not damaged or virus infected. If you Open Disk management there you will find your pendrive without any drive letter.
Here the problem is not with the pendrive, it is with the system. To resolve this I tried in many ways and installed driver detecting softwares, but there is no use. Finally I succeeded in the following method.
The problem occured because unexpectedly the drive was un-mounted.
1) To solve you should have Administrator privilages on your local system.
2) Later go to Local security policy select Local policies in that select Audit policy and select Audit object access and check Success and apply.
3) From RUN, type diskpart and right click on it and select Run as Administrator
4) At the DISKPART prompt, type automount press enter
next type recover press enter
next type rescan press enter and exit
5) In Device manager under storage devices find your device not recognized and uninstall it.
6) Unplug the device and plug it again then the driver automatically installs and it is mounted to your computer. You will get the autoplay window.
Thats it.

Answer:Problem with pendrive, Gamarue infection?

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer Win32/Gamarue is a worm that spreads via emails and flash drives. You will need an antivirus to detect it - Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not meant to be used against worms.Due to the nature of this infection, I must warn you of the following...Looking through your logs I noticed that your machine is infected with a backdoor Trojan.They allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please change all your passwords on a known clean and secure machine, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be removed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

Got a problem I cannot seem to solve. I need to communicate with a wifi router that is not itself directly connected to the computer in order to change its channel to improve overall signal quality for the two Wi-Fi routers I have and deconflict with a neighbor's Wi-Fi. The router I need to adjust is connected to the internet through the cable router. It is not directly connected to the computer - thus the Genie program won't talk to it. If I do wire directly to that wi-fi, the internet connection is lost (no cable port to wire it up, unfortunately) and the Genie program won't let me do anything either. So I need to know how to adjust a Wi-Fi router that is acting merely as a wireless antennae to a different router, rather than a direct connection to the internet.

Ideas?

(Background info to save time)

I have a very long house with a lot of metal in it. The Cable drop for internet is in the basement at one end. The cable router has a built in Wi-Fi serving half the house, to which I have (via a LONG cord) connected a second (NetGear) wifi router. Until recently, these have worked fine for the limited internet surfing we've done. This was necessitated by not having good signal at either end of the house if Wi-Fi was in the middle, or no signal at one end if Wi-Fi was left at one end of the house or the other. Thus, two Wi-Fi's.

However - my son is now of an age he wants to play FPS games on the laptop; meaning he needs good ping. ... Read more

Hi all, I recently purchased a lenovo G580 laptop; windows 8My laptop wifi works perfectly when I am at home or connected to any normal wifi. It does not work when I am at school which typically once you connect to the school's wifi, it opens up a web broweser asking for your usename and password to get compelte access. (figure 1- from my other laptop)My lenovo laptop cannot download this website, therefore I have no internet access at school since I cannot put my information inside. (figure 2- from lenovo laptop)   The problem is not my school's router because I have wifi connection on my other laptop here without any problems. Also the problem is not really the location/wifi of my lenova laptop because I can connect to my phone's personal hotspot when I am at school. Simply, the problem is found when I cannot connect to my school's wifi because it requires me to download a site to put my information.  I have read other forums and try to figure it myself, however, I am very noobie when it comes to computers. So I appreciate a step-by-step instructions. For example, please provide links that I may need to download to update my driver.I have called customer care, and I am not going to pay 100 bucks just to fix a simple problem.

Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

Answer:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

Hi All,

Win8:
I have two wifi APs in the home and I have it all set up so that one is the Internet by cell phone tether and the other is the cabled network via the router wifi.

Works just fine - except.

On wifi 1, Internet I have it set for "Connect automatically" which at boot up it does.

On wifi 2, Network I also have it set for "Connect automatically" which at boot up it does NOT do. I have to go in and connect manually even though the "Connect automatically" is checked.

It seems win8 sees "Connect automatically"and does it but then stops checking other connections. Probably a "feature."

Is there some way to force both "Connect automatically" to happen?

Thanks

Answer:Wifi Auto-Connect to two-wifi APs, problem

There is a group policy setting for this, but even if both are connected you will only be using one of those connections at a time.

My laptop picks up the wifi at cafes etc, but asks for the network security key instead of password. My tablet and phone connect fine and just get asked for the password, never the network security key (the staff at cafe only know the password).

Answer:Wifi windows 8 problem on public wifi

If it is an older laptop and the Cafes etc are using a 5Ghz connection the laptop will not work what you need is a new Wireless card that can use 5ghz not sure if a modern wireless dongle will help you out but you would need one that can use the 5ghz connection.
Someone on here maybe able to suggest a good one for you.

I upgraded from 8.1 to 10.0 2-3 weeks ago. Wifi worked fine until a couple of days ago. Now the icon says "Not connected - No connections are available." But there are! I'm sending this from my Windows 8.1 notebook and it says there are 4 wifi's available and all have a strong signal. When I go to "Control Panel > Network & Internet > Network Connections" it shows Wi-Fi as disabled. When I double click on it it goes thru the motions and shows it as Enabling and then "Enabled", but the Wi-Fi area still shows it as "Disabled". It is an "Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260" (whatever that is I don't know as I'm a definite novice and not a techie)! Then I went to "Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Troubleshooting > Network and Internet". When I tried to repair it, the message said "Problems found...There might be a problem with the driver for the Wi-Fi adapter."I have no idea what caused this to stop working or what to do to get our wifi back!

Answer:Wifi did work, now doesn't...Got message "... a problem WiFi adapter"

I would uninstall the driver, go out to Intel and get the latest windows 10 compatible driver and install it.

There is a driver for your wireless adapter and it is windows 10 compatible.

Intel site is here : http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support...wireless/n7260

go to the latest downloads section, click "view all" and download the driver for your card be it either in a 32 bit or 64 bit system.

Question: pendrive's

HI,I was reading an article the other day about a chap who had spybot and other spyware software on his usb pendrive,and not on his pc i was wondering if it wasn't installed on any pc how was he running the spybot etc, on any machine to check for errors spyware without it being installed on the pc it was just on his pendrive.Puzzles me or is it me? help.Thanks daiol.

Answer:pendrive's

I think he probably had the installer executables on the pen drive. Then he could go to any PC with a USB port and install the program without having to download (especially if the internet connection wasn't working).I've done a similar thing with a collection of anti-malware and diagnostic programs burned to a CD.

Answer:use pendrive on lcd

Hi,

Have you checked your tv manufacturer's website to see if your tv can play movies from just a usb flash drive as most lcd tv's don't do that if this is what you mean. The usb slot on a TV is there mainly for updates for itself, although having said that there is a few that will let you play a slideshow of pictures from it.

Have a look online at LG's website typing in your tv's make model/serial number, it will definitely tell you.

I have a P4 computer but its RAM is just 256 MB. If anyone knows any method to use a pendrive as a RAM, please tell it to me. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Using Pendrive as a RAM on XP

This is not recommended, not practical, and I don't think it's possible. USB Storage Devices store memory as Flash memory, which is different than the type of memory used in your RAM. They are accessed differently and have different characteristics.The main difference is that the Flash Drive retains its memory when the power is turned off, whereas the RAM is completely erased when you turn off the power.Also, if you manage to get the USB Drive working as RAM, it would be like driving a car without circular wheels. It is just too slow to be used as RAM.Can you not purchase any more RAM? It doesn't come too expensive.

Dear Friends
This issue may be repeated, and may occur to any of us
I have a USB flash drive, of 8GB
it worked fine for months,
but unfortunately, it is not working any more!
If inserted, the computer recognizes it as a flash drive, and places it in the "Safely Remove Hardware",
but if we tried to open it, it says "Insert disk in drive..."
I saw it's properties it says: Rmovable disk>>> Size 0MB !!!
where the media gone?
I tried to format it says "no disk in drive..."
I tried to fix using HP recovery, and other utilities, but it insists on, "No disk in drive"

Is there is something to do?
Please help...
 

Answer:USB pendrive 8GB=0MB

This can happen when the drive is not removed properly.
Plug in the drive,then go to "my computer".
Right click the drive and click eject.
Remove the drive and restart the computer.
Try the drive again.

I had purchased a Transcend Jet Flash 700 USB 3.0 16 GB Pendrive from Flipkart in mid September 2011. The pendrive is not even a year old.

Yesterday I inserted my pendrive in a friend's laptop to transfer files of around 1.5GB. The pendrive had more than 10GB free space. 70-80% of the transfer was done but then his laptop's battery drained off and the laptop obviously got shut down. Since then, whenever I insert my pendrive in any device the blue light on it blinks for around 10 seconds and then the light turns off too. The pendrive is not detected.

I have tried reading the pendrive on my friend's laptop, on my laptop and my tablet too. On each device, the pendrive's light blinks for about 10 seconds but nothing happens.

Please help, is there any way by which I can fix it?

Answer:Pendrive not being detected - Please help

Does the pendrive show up in Disk Management? If so a screenshot will be helpul to give a trageted solution hopefully.

Is it possible to install XP onto a USB pendrive and boot it from there? If it is possible, how to do it?

Also, does it have any drawbacks, disadvantages? I think I read somewhere that flash drives have a maximum lifetime, which is measured in write operations performed on them. If the number of write operations exceed this number, the flash drive will eventually get unreliable.
And, given that Windows is using the pagefile almost constantly, it will ruin a flash drive in a few hours. Can any expert confirm this?

Thanks,

Jimmy

PS: A little background for those interested.
I want this because I want to separate my internet banking operations from all the rest I do with my computer. So I need a second system, which is securely away when I work or surf or play, and which, therefore, is inaccessible for any possible attacks originating from viruses or hackers. (So a 2nd partition won't do, because it's part of the system all the time.) I don't like the idea of always changing hard drives, whenever I want to do banking, so I need an external source for booting the OS. USB pendrives came to mind.

Sir, I have 4gb kingston pendrive. I want to partition it into three parts(three drives)
Is it possible if yes plz tell me how

Answer:Partition of pendrive

1) Windows will not let you create or see multiple partitions on removable media. But you can do it with linux. See this page.

[SOLVED] Making multiple partitions on USB memory stick

2) Another approach is to try and turn your USB drive into a fixed disk by ‘flipping’ the removable bit in the firmware. This is the digital flag that tells Windows whether the drive is ‘fixed’ or ‘removable’. You can do this using the Lexar BootIt utility.

LEXAR JUMPDRIVE USB FORMAT TOOL - The CD Forum

Lexar tool makes creating bootable USB flash drives easy

Create separate partitions on your Corsair USB flash drive &#171; Corsair? Blog

Let me add that the Lexar utility may or may not work on your particular drive, so use at your own risk.

3) The safest option is to buy a few cheap, low capacity drives and use them for individual purposes.

Answer:pendrive not able to format...!!

Worst case: Your pen drive is dead. A pen drive that has gone through thousands of Read/ Write cycles can die a natural death when its flash controller decides that it had had its full run and it is no longer safe to write any data on it.(simple non-technical explanation. )

Since you have not given any details about the pen drive in question like the model/make/capacity, for how long you have been using it, whether it is still under warranty, whether other pen drives works normally on your computer,whether you had tried this pen drive on another computer and with what results, and if it shows in the Windows Disk Management how does it appear (is it RAW) etc., etc., it is not possible to give any specific suggestion to deal with that problem.

So here you go on a round-trip.

32 gb kingston pendrive not responding

Answer:pendrive not responding

If you've had it for a while it may have reached the end of it's life. There is a limit to how many times you can write to it, and a limit to how long it will retain the data that's on it.I have found the original low capacity ones to be far more reliable, I'm still using a 1GB one after 5 years daily use, whereas the 8GB one I bought didn't last more than a year. So I no longer buy them. I use external hard drives instead. They cost more initially but are more reliable and last longer so you actually save money over the longer term.

When I plug the pendrive in I can't 'see' it in my computer.

Someone has said it may be to do with the fact that I'm at work and have some network drives mapped. I've been into 'Control Panel' and then 'Admin Tools' and then 'Computer Management' and then 'Disk Management' - and then I can 'see' the pendrive is connected.

It seems to be automatically mapped to 'E:' - but then when I go back to 'My Computer' 'E:' isn't one of the drive letters being shown?!

The E: drive is probably one of your network drives. Are you sure it is not listed in My Computer. Network drives' letters are displayed in the end of the drives description.

Just change the USB pen's drive letter in Disk Managment to something that is definently not used.

Question: Pendrive and virus

When I click on the pendrive icon by clicking on My Computer, it leads to My Documents instead. Pendrive can be opened only by getting exploded view from Folders.

When I try to go to c:\ prompt, it switches back to window. I am sure it is caused by virus.

Please help how to take care of it

Thanks

Question: Bootable pendrive

I know its been covered before however using a pendrive for a bootable drive are they faster than say a standard HDD due to the solid state memory?

Say for example i had a 4Gb pendrive and installed all the O/S and drivers onto the drive, would it boot faster than my 7200 160Gb HDD?

Or alternatively used the files and setting transfer wizard to make the drive bootable?

Surely the onboard memory of the drive has faster access speeds in a USB2 slot? Or does it have to be a USB1.1 because the drivers for the USB2 wont load at first boot?

Just being nosey really!
 

Answer:Bootable pendrive

Nope, a USB stick isn't any faster - some new SSDs (actual hard drives) are around the same speed as a good HDD.

A bootable USB stick will be quite slow and won't last as long as it has a limit on the amount of writes. They are good for playing with Linux though

my DVD drive is not detecting any cd/dvd.So I want to install XP sp2 from pendrive, please tell me the procedure for this.

Answer:to install XP sp2 with pendrive

Hi durgesh_mmm and welcome to TSF !

Make sure you changed the boot order priority to CD-rom first in the BIOS.

If the DVD/CD drive is really dead then the easiest solution would be to replace it or borrow a friend's for the time of the installation. If this is a laptop you can use an external DVD drive (if the laptop doesn't support booting from an USB device you won't be able to use another method anyway).

What's the brand and model of your computer or of your motherboard ? You'll need to make your USB drive bootable, have a motherboard that supports booting from USB devices and edit several files because XP isn't designed to be installed from an USB drive.
