  1. Re: Laptop wifi constantly hangs/drops every 5 minutes or so

    MalwareBytes showed nothing.

    Two different routers (work and home) both used to work fine, neither has changed.
  2. Re: Laptop wifi constantly hangs/drops every 5 minutes or so

    Yep already gone through and installed it.

    Not sure tbh, the home and work one are both different.

    Upgraded (not clean install) to Win10 when it first came out

    Use Win firewall + Avast free.
  3. Re: Laptop wifi constantly hangs/drops every 5 minutes or so

    Have tried all of those fixes (was in the first post) as well as all the suggestions in this thread and so far still no fix. Currently isn't dropping out AS MUCH but still definitely dropping out...
  4. Re: Laptop wifi constantly hangs/drops every 5 minutes or so

    Tried that a couple of times. No luck.



    Two different modems (work and home)



    I am. Different mouse at work than at home however both Logitech wireless. How could this be causing it?
  5. Re: Laptop wifi constantly hangs/drops every 5 minutes or so

    Did that, made no difference
  6. Laptop wifi constantly hangs/drops every 5 minutes or so

    As of about a week ago, the wifi on my Win10 HP laptop has been constantly hanging (webpages won't load, or load properly) or dropping out completely. Switching airplane mode on and off again gets...

    Re: Programs randomly not starting on start up

    HP CoolSense.

    Will try going through that otherwise will try Agent_24's suggestion using that program.

    Would rather not do another clean install if I can avoid it.

    Re: Programs randomly not starting on start up

    Old HDD was completely dead, so it was a clean install.

    Have exactly the same programs as I did on the old HDD if that makes any difference.

    Programs randomly not starting on start up

    Yet another problem since getting my hard drive replaced...

    Every so often (I'd say every 1 in 4 start ups) over half my start up programs do not start on start up and I have to reboot or open...
  11. Re: Laptop, new hard drive - overheating/noisy fan

    Been waiting for it to happen again, but it seems to have fixed itself?

    Maybe something was lose and it came right? No new software was installed or any other program changes.
  12. Re: Laptop, new hard drive - overheating/noisy fan

    Laptop was bought in January this year so is under warranty.

    Is it just a coincidence it's happened now or related to the replacing of the HDD?
  13. Laptop, new hard drive - overheating/noisy fan

    Made a thread about the hard drive couple weeks ago. Basically it died and took it into a HP repair place (it's a Hp pavilion 15-p011tx) they replaced it and got it back.

    Anyway a week or so...

    Re: Backing up data from a failing notebook HDD

    Just to double check - in Puppy it should show up in the bottom left without having to do anything else?

    Otherwise, the data that I wasn't able to retrieve off it isn't worth spending hundreds of...

    Re: Backing up data from a failing notebook HDD

    Alright had to enable legacy in the boot to get it to read it.

    GetDataBack would not boot all the way through, just went to a blank screen after the initial window.

    Linux Puppy booted fine but...

    Re: Backing up data from a failing notebook HDD

    That bootable CD looks promising.

    As my old spare laptop does not have a working disc drive, is it possible to burn it to a USB stick instead? Or if not, where can I get a pre-made CD of it /...

    Re: Backing up data from a failing notebook HDD

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have a desktop external hdd would that work? Though I don't have a Linux cd.

    So basically the only way to not void the warranty is to hope it hasn't completely failed...

    So far so good with Google's DNS. Haven't had any timeouts yet.
  22. Re: New laptop - browsers hang and/or time out on a lot of web pages

    Ok just reading through some of the other threads on the same issue(sorry should've done a search first)

    Should I try manually setting my DNS to Google or to Telecom/Spark? Which is better to use?
  23. Re: New laptop - browsers hang and/or time out on a lot of web pages

    I found it did happen on PF1 more often than other sites.

    So everyone is having the problem? My other laptop on the same wifi connection never does it.
  24. Re: New laptop - browsers hang and/or time out on a lot of web pages

    Disabled Avast - same problem. Malwarebytes (not actively running however) and Win Firewall are the only other things.

    Still searching for an ethernet cable to try. Stuck with wifi atm.
  25. New laptop - browsers hang and/or time out on a lot of web pages

    Brand new laptop. HP Pavillion with Win 8.1.

    Have tried numerous different wifi networks, my old laptop has never had this problem on the same connection.
