My laptop's WiFi detects all WiFi networks but does not detect my office's WiFi. I am in range and my phone and colleague's laptops are connected to this network without any issue. I used to connect to this network before this issue occured. My laptop's WiFi can see other networks and can connect with them properly. </p> <p>To resolve this issue I tried these things.</p> <ol> <li><p>From 'Device Manager' uninstalled the WiFi adapter's driver and re-installed WiFi drivers I have downloaded from HP site. I am using HP laptop Pavilion g6 2207-tx. No luck.</p></li> <li><p>Re-stared PC. No Luck.</p></li> <li><p>Installed another Windows 8 O.S. on another partition(after formatting the partition) of the Hard Disk. This time I was stuck to see that in installation process Windows 8 installation program asks me to join a WiFi network when the installation was just about to finish. Same thing happened here too, except my office's WiFi I was able to see other WiFi networks. (I am still surprising from where Windows 8 installation program picked the WiFi driver?). BTW I skipped that process of joining WiFi and completed installation of Windows 8. Same situation.</p></li> <li><p>I guessed that Windows 8 installation might have picked driver from the original Windows 8 installed on another disk partition. So this time I installed Windows 8 again. But in installation procedure I have deleted all the partitions and re-created new fresh partitions. Installed the OS on one of new partition. But No Luck(Also WiFi driver was surprisingly there. Installation procedure asked me to join a WiFi network but missing my desired network).</p></li> <li><p>Now I guessed WiFi driver was in windows 8 disk image. So I installed Windows 7 this time (Also deleted and created fresh disk partitions). After successful installation of windows 7 I installed WiFi driver. It is working but office's WiFi network is still not shown but others are.</p></li> <li><p>I have renamed my Office's WiFi.but still I can't see on my laptop. But changed name is visible on all other devices. Some one on web suggested this.</p></li> </ol> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1194448 8 How do I disable audio jack detection In Windows 10 without using Realtek HD Audio Manager? Strill http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/110705 2017-04-01T00:54:07Z 2019-03-25T23:57:40Z <p>I have a headphone jack with a broken sensor. The headphones are normally supposed to turn on when they're plugged in. Because the jack is broken, however, my computer only detects that my headphones are plugged in when I push or tilt the plug, and that's the only time I can get sound out of them. Therefore I'd like to control this feature manually and force the sound to come out of my headphones all the time. </p> <p>I've found registry keys that can be edited for Windows 7 and 8 which give this functionality, but none for Windows 10.</p> <p>Realtek's HD Audio Manager has a "Disable Front Panel Jack Detection" option which gives this functionality, but Realtek's skin for Dell motherboards, which my computer has, does not include this option.</p> <p>So I was thinking: Perhaps this Dell skin is only cosmetic. If I could find out which registry key is changed when someone else checks the "Disable Front Panel Jack Detection" box in their Realtek Audio Manager, I could edit that same key on my computer, and achieve the same functionality.</p> <p>Does anyone know which key this is?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1417442 1 Soundcard Xonar DGX only works 'sometimes' CodingVoid http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/1011878 2019-03-25T19:09:06Z 2019-03-25T19:09:06Z <p>Since about half a year, i am having a really confusing time with my Soundcard. When I boot my PC up it feels like there is a gamble going on that is deciding if the Sound Card works now. If it does not work, I always restart my PC a few times and after a non deterministic amount of times, the Sound Card gets recognized and will be automatically used.</p> <ul> <li>OS: Arch Linux x86_64</li> <li>Kernel: 5.0.4-arch1-1-ARCH</li> <li>Desktop-Environment: Xfce</li> <li>Audio: Pulseaudio/Alsa</li> </ul> <p>I used the "lspci -v" command when it was working:</p> <blockquote> <p>Multimedia audio controller: C-Media Electronics Inc CMI8788 [Oxygen HD Audio]</p> <p>Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

It will be normal (0.1%) for maybe 30 seconds and then spike up to 25 - 50 percent of my total CPU in the task manager for a short period of time. I play games on my computer, so it is a major problem when it sucks up all my processing power.</p> <p>I downloaded process explorer, and the culprit for driving it up is a thread called "Qcamain10x64". It spikes up periodically, and then returns to a negligible usage shortly after, aligned with the system process fluctuations as a whole. I've done a little bit of searching, and I found it to be associated with my network drivers. I've updated them, but it hasn't made a difference and I'm starting to leave my zone of understanding. I've also noticed that it only seems to be happening when something is downloading in the background.</p> <p>My computer is an MSI laptop with 4 cores, and I can add more specs if they are needed. Thanks for any help you can give me.</p> <p><a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/Gz6ZJ.jpg" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/Gz6ZJ.jpg" alt="enter image description here"></a></p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1417384 0 Device Access/Lock for Users in Windows - How does it work? Is it configurable? trustysteed http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/1011795 2019-03-25T16:18:21Z 2019-03-25T16:18:21Z <p><strong>Explanation:</strong></p> <p>An application that I use will listen on a serial port and uses a video capture card. If I leave that application open and switch users to start the application again, that other user won't have access to the serial port and video capture card. It seems to be blocked by the first, still logged in user.</p> <p>This implies to me that the operating system will limit the access to certain devices* to the first users that use the device.</p> <p>*When saying devices I mean hardware devices as shown in the device manager, i.e. comport cards, video capture cards, etc..</p> <p><strong>Questions:</strong></p> <ul> <li>Where does this limitation exist? Is it on Windows(kernel?)-level or on application level?</li> <li>How does this device access control work in Windows if it is implemented by the OS? </li> <li>Where can I read up on it? </li> <li>Can I disable it altogether? </li> <li>Can I, as a local administrator, take control of a device from a user without killing the application that uses it?</li> </ul> <p><strong>Boundaries:</strong></p> <p>I know it would be easiest to make sure the application is not open twice. Still, it would be useful to me to have a deeper understanding on why the device can't be used by both instances or alternatively if I can make a second instance take away the devices from the first.</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1417288 0 In HDP 2.6 Hive Metastore JDBC driver issue occur user1011699 http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/1011699 2019-03-25T13:06:05Z 2019-03-25T13:06:05Z <p>Metastore Connection Driver : com.mysql.jdbc.Driver Metastore connection User: hive org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaException: Failed to load driver Underlying cause: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException : com.mysql.jdbc.Driver org.apache.hadoop.hive.metastore.HiveMetaException: Failed to load driver</p> <p>In Hive Service it shows..

It will not work with some of the keys, in my case i notice it specifically with C key and the number 2 key i.e. I cannot get a capital <code>C</code> using the shift key or the <code>@</code> symbol</p> <p>It will work with the other keys but on occasion fail with some of them as well. for example, Ctrl + Shift + T to restore tab always showed a blank tab and i was worried that chrome was at fault , but then i realized that the Shift wasn't firing, and thus it was opening a new tab instead.</p> <p>Using various keyboard tools (microsoft on-screen keyboard, keyboardtester.com) I've figured out the the shift key toggles it state rapidly and inconsistently. <a href="https://www.techrepublic.com/forums/discussions/keyboard-shift-key-on-off-problem/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">This article</a> explains the situation very well, my situation is very similar except I know it's not a hardware issue. How? </p> <p>Simple, i tried the same wireless keyboard on other computers, and it works flawlessly for months on end!!!</p> <p><strong>Possible points of failure</strong></p> <ol> <li>Hardware/keyboard chip - X</li> <li>Motherboard/bios ?</li> <li>Drivers - X</li> <li>Physical key contacts - X</li> <li>Battery - X</li> <li>Interfering software - ? have yet to test in safe mode.</li> <li>Wireless signal interference - ? don't know how to test for this.</li> <li>Static Buildup - ? don't know how to test for this as well</li> </ol> <p><strong>Things I've tried</strong></p> <ul> <li>Replacing battery - no impact</li> <li>changing host machine - works on a different host, but not on this machine (so this narrows down the issue to this particular configuration)</li> <li>Update device driver - done, no impact, all the keyboards have the same microsoft HID keyboard device from 2006-06-21, version: 10.0.16299.15</li> <li>Using other keyboards on the machine, wired &amp; wireless - works fine</li> <li>Removed the keycaps and cleaned the keyboard.</li> <li>Quit all background programs (side question is there a good app/script to terminate all tray apps?) </li> <li>Tried pressing and holding both shift keys for 10 seconds, and a combination of alt + ctrl as well, as recommended by other sources. </li> </ul> <p>The <em>interesting thing</em> is this, that the first time this happened i replaced my generic wireless set with a logitech wireless set, and gave the older one to another team member to use (for whom it worked with no problems). Now the 2nd time it has happened with the new keyboard, I've given that to the team member as well, and taken the old one back, which now works well (who knows for how long). </p> <p>I was hoping I could receive advice on what other possible points of failure might be given this situation. Any keyboard hardware experts out there who have ideas?</p> <p>I know this is a trivial thing to think about, but it's intriguing that's why I'm trying to find the root cause. </p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1416640 -1 developent of drivers for device to computer interface not undertood Jose Enrique Calderon http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/425051 2019-03-23T12:47:23Z 2019-03-23T12:47:23Z <p>I have a very basic understandng filled with lots of unclear spaces. Hope someone here is able to comment on the subject of drivers for computer to device interfacing.</p> <p>I am interested in machine vision, but I have been trouble taking images capture by a USB Pinnacle 510 and a 710 frame grabber. I tried to capture the videos using a software other that the original shipped with the device. In addition, I plug the device to a Linux ubuntu machine. The system recognized the devices, but I am not able to activate and capture videos from the attached cameras.</p> <p>Are external devices hooked to a specific driver developmed from vendor? I thought that any device attached to Windows or Linux usb delivers stream of data to the machine and a general driver is allways available. Please , comment on the subject if there is something wrong with my statement.</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1415993 2 Brother printer driver for Chromebook 3 Terrance Hutchings http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/1010160 2019-03-21T14:44:59Z 2019-03-22T14:18:45Z <p>My (new) Chromebook3 uses the Linux - Beta OS.</p> <p>I'm trying to download a printer driver for my Brother MFC-7440N printer.

The Bluetooth suddenly stopped working this morning and as a result the wireless mouse no longer works (this is how I knew Bluetooth stopped as I was using the machine at the time).</p> <p>I checked in Device Manager and the Bluetooth devices were greyed out though they were not disabled (had to enable 'Show hidden devices' in Device Manager to see the Bluetooth section in the device tree).</p> <p>I proceeded to uninstall and reinstall the Atheros QCA9377 driver as available from the Asus website (<a href="https://www.asus.com/uk/support/Download/3/919/0/1/EKnJ4vWdmuN3xLti/45/" rel="nofollow noreferrer">https://www.asus.com/uk/support/Download/3/919/0/1/EKnJ4vWdmuN3xLti/45/</a>). Upon reinstalling the driver Bluetooth is no longer listed anywhere in Device Manager.</p> <p>I have run the "Scan for hardware changes" in Device Manager but this does not detect anything new.</p> <p>It is as if the Bluetooth device no longer exists on the system. However, WiFi is working fine which would suggest that the device itself is presumably ok and still present.</p> <p>The only possibly suspicious thing to note in Device Manager is a device under:</p> <pre><code>Universal Serial Bus controllers &gt; Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed). </code></pre> <p>I have no USB devices connected to the system so it is unclear what this unknown USB device is above - perhaps it could be the Bluetooth adapter but I don't seem to be able to get that unknown device to find a driver update online.</p> <p>The Windows 'Bluetooth Support Service' is running and can start/stop successfully - it is also set to Automatic startup.</p> <p>Airplane mode is not enabled and toggling it on/off has no effect on the Bluetooth situation, though it does turn WiFi on/off as it should.</p> <p>I am out of options that I know of to troubleshoot this as Bluetooth isn't showing up no matter what I do.</p> <p>How can I troubleshoot further and get the Bluetooth adapter reinstalled properly?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/886181 1 How to use Umax Astra 5600 in Windows 7 64 bit?

I want to use the former for as many apps as possible, including Chrome.</p> <p>I downloaded the generic AMD driver installer from <a href="https://www2.ati.com/drivers/installer/16.50/whql/radeon-crimson-relive-16.12.2-minimalsetup-170106_web.exe" rel="noreferrer">here</a>, and used it successfully to install Radeon drivers.</p> <p>I looked in the AMD settings in the following place:</p> <p><a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/FWsft.png" rel="noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/FWsft.png" alt="screenshot"></a></p> <p>And as you see for Chrome there's a lock icon. When I hover the "power saving" combobox, a tooltip is shown, saying "To ensure compatibility, this application is locked". Here "Power saving" is a code phrase for "Use the Intel GPU" and "High performance" is a code phrase for "Use the AMD GPU".</p> <p>I was not happy with being prevented from using the better GPU in Chrome (I want to run e.g. <a href="http://shadertoy.com" rel="noreferrer">shadertoy demos</a>), so I tried installing other drivers, this time coming from HP:</p> <p><a href="http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/closure/hp-15-ac100-notebook-pc-series/8499326/model/10192987#Z7_3054ICK0K8UDA0AQC11TA930O2" rel="noreferrer"><code>AMD/Intel Switchable High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver</code>, for product <code>HP Notebook - 15-ac107nu</code></a>.</p> <p>This didn't fix the problem.</p> <p><strong>Any idea why Chrome seems unsupported by my AMD GPU? Both Chrome and AMD Radeon R5 M330 are reasonably standard and widely used products... why would there be incompatibility between them?</strong></p> <p><strong>And is there a fix for the problem?</strong></p> <p><strong>Note:</strong> <a href="http://asianhospital.com/?id=questions/630553/how-to-make-browser-use-discrete-radeon-gpu">This question</a> is very related but doesn't mention having the relevant Chrome setting locked. Instead it says that he successfully Chrome to "High performance" but it still used the Intel GPU.</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1415820 0 Shift key stops working in Windows 10 when MS Word installed dave http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/62397 2019-03-20T23:18:07Z 2019-03-20T23:18:07Z <p>I have a 2 year old laptop (Dell Inspiron 13 5378) that worked fine for its first 18 months then the shift key became unreliable and now stops working. Both shift keys and both alt keys become non-functional. An external keyboard works fine.</p> <p>Running Dell Diagnostics, I can see the keys are detected at a low level, just not where it counts. I took it to a PC shop and they confirmed the keys work fine under Ubuntu. This is not a hardware issue. </p> <p>Next, I totally flattened the machine. The shift key works again. Install Office 360 and it stops again.</p> <p>Next I reflatten the machine, all OK, and I install Office 97. The shift key stops working immediately.</p> <p>I feels like a Windows driver got updated a while ago and it clashes with Dell and Office combination, but Office 97 is 20yo!</p> <p>Any ideas?</p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1234964 0 How to find which OpenGL extensions are supported by a graphic card that I want to buy Flot2011 http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/236749 2017-07-27T09:08:22Z 2019-03-20T19:26:10Z <p>I am developing a 3D program using OpenGL/<a href="http://vtk.org" rel="nofollow noreferrer">VTK</a> library on Windows. </p> <p>I was surprised to found that many seemingly decent graphic cards don't support all OpenGL extensions. Example: <a href="https://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-525M.43889.0.html" rel="nofollow noreferrer">NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M</a> that doesn't support gpu_shader4 extension.</p> <p>My client wants to buy a dozen of computers, I need to tell them what to buy and I cannot find this information on the Net. I have checked a lot of sites, they usually mention an OpenGL version supported, but from my experience that never means fully supported.</p> <p>I know about <a href="http://realtech-vr.com/admin/glview" rel="nofollow noreferrer">OpenGL Extensions Viewer Tool</a>, but I cannot run it on computers in a shop, they won't allow. So, is there any way to make sure a graphic card support specific extensions before buying? </p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1328551 0 Switching Nvidia cards results in unvisible Linux Mint Arnold http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/537350 2018-06-04T15:10:07Z 2019-03-20T14:13:10Z <p>I have changed my video card from nvidia 1060 to 1080Ti. Since then the last thing I get to see is the Grub menu. Choosing Linux Mint returns a black screen. But I see some disk activity so I guessed it is not so much of a crash as a wrong driver or so. Ctrl-alt-del reboots the system so I guess my assumption is right. I changed back to the 1060 but the problem persisted. I have a dual boot setup and windows-10 works flawless.</p> <p>After googling and asking around I tried pressing 'e' in the boot menu to add: nomodeset, nomodeset xforcevesa, nvidia.modeset=0 to the line starting with 'linux' but this did not give me a visible desktop. </p> <p>Next I removed the Nvidia drivers as follows:</p> <pre><code>1. boot into recovery mode 2. choose option 'root' login as root, enter root password 3. mount -o rw,remount / # remounts the file system as rw 4. apt-get purge nvidia* # answer Y, nvidia drivers successfully removed 5. apt-get autoremove 6. reboot 7. from the boot menu, choose the normal linux option, enter 'e' 8. goto the line starting with linux, add nomodeset xforcevesa 9. Press F10 </code></pre> <p>The problem persists. I tried again to remove the Nvidia drivers but I got the message they weren't present.</p> <p>I also use cuda.

It's running fine generally - when testing it through the windows sound driver options it works, I can hear sounds from ALL speakers. But since almost nothing has 5.1 built-in - youtube, my mp3s, etc. I can't profit much of it...but at least I would like to hear music coming out of all speakers...</p> <p>I was especially hoping to see a "Speaker fill" checkbox somewhere but nope...<br> I downloaded the newest driver <a href="https://support.creative.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?catID=1&amp;prodID=17510&amp;prodName=Sound%20Blaster%205.1%20VX" rel="nofollow noreferrer">here</a> but I couldn't find any options to get music coming from the 3 surround speakers. Only the two stereo ones play music from regular mp3 files. I used the driver that windows installs automatically too but I also couldn't find anything to get the other 3 speakers working. </p> <p>Creative Driver:<br> <a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/XDrQX.png" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/XDrQX.png" alt="Creative Driver"></a><br> Driver installed by Win10 automatically:<br> <a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/yxog2.png" rel="nofollow noreferrer"><img src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/yxog2.png" alt="Default Windows Driver"></a></p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1415355 1 Is it possible to install a device driver without having the device? colmde http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/369364 2019-03-19T15:43:50Z 2019-03-19T16:10:50Z <p>I need to install drivers for a Startech WiFi dongle, but I don't actually have one to hand.</p> <p>Any instructions I've found on installing driver software involves going into the Device Manager and right-clicking on the device and going for there, but of course if I don't have the device then it won't appear there. </p> <p>I've tried, "Add Legacy Hardware" => "Have Disk..." in the device manager, which lets me browse to my driver files, but after I browse to the driver file and click "OK", the list of network adapters is blank.</p> <p>If I run the setup application that came with the device, then it also installs the utility, which I don't want.</p> <p>Is this even possible? </p> http://asianhospital.com/?id=q/1291883 1 Can't adjust brightness on Dell XPS 13 under Windows 10 ccalboni http://asianhospital.com/?id=users/754348 2018-02-04T10:55:26Z 2019-03-18T09:59:48Z <p>Every time my Windows 10 installs a new major update I lose control over screen brightness.

It does not compile on my Raspberry Pi due to the kernel API change.</p> <p>But I noticed that kernel 4.14 has already integrated driver for ath6kl family.

And how does the system determine which <code>hw</code> is required to boot the ar1021x chip?</li> <li>And in the <code>hw3.0</code> directory, these is a <code>fw-5.bin</code> file. Is this <code>5</code> some version number?</li> </ul> <hr> <p>After reboot, I can get a new interface <code>wlan1</code> in <code>ifconfig</code>. However, the flags of this interface is <code>flags=4099&lt;UP, BROADCAST, MULTICAST&gt;</code>, without <code>RUNNING</code>. And the tx-power given by <code>iwconfig</code> is 0 dBm. I tried to use <code>sudo iwconfig wlan1 txpower 20</code> to change the transmission power, but it errors with</p> <pre><code>Error for wireless request "Set Tx Power" (8B26) : SET failed on device wlan1 ; Operation not supported. </code></pre> <p>I can use <code>sudo wiliest wlan1 scanning</code> to find some access points, but I have no way to join these AP. I tried the <code>wpa_supplicant.conf</code> file, it does not work.
