  1. Problem solved. Bought a ethernet card on Amazon for 20 bucks, popped in and bang. Not only my internet speed increased but I din't see any more glitches. It coughed once but i think it was something else. Thank you all
  2. I'm confused. I don't see what 3 weeks has to do with this. If the new install of the OS was the problem, it seems to me the issue would have surfaced immediately after the install. The fact it worked for 3 weeks suggests to me the software was good. That's not to say a software update after the install did not cause problems, but it is safe to assume that same update would have been installed whether the OS was installed 1 week ago, 3 weeks ago, or 3 years ago. Lights flashing on the switch port do suggest some data is hitting the port, but those could be collisions too. My point is, lights do not eliminate the NIC as the problem. I note The fact the wireless devices work fine tells us the router works fine since internally to a wireless router, the "integrated" WAP (wireless access point) connects to the router in the same manner the "integrated" 4-port Ethernet switch does. With the problem only happening with Ethernet connections, that suggests the cable, the port on the switch, or the NIC - hence the suggestion way above to try a different cable and a different port. However, since the OP tried a notebook connected to the same port with the same cable and that worked, it once again points to the computer itself - hence the suggestion to uninstall the NIC drivers, do a cold boot, and see what happens. @marcos - can you log into your router's admin menu? Change cable and ports, not change. How do I unistall the NIC driver? What if I buy a ethernet card and connected it there? Thanks
  3. it said: Ping request could not find host check the name and try again.
  4. My laptop PC when connected to the same wire didn't show any problem. So the problem is in my desktop. Now is time to see if is a software issue or a hardware one?
  5. All other devices that are running wireless are fine. The only thing left to check is to check the wired connection with another computer. I did plugged a mac laptop on it with no problems but I'll try with another pc Thanks
  6. This was a update windows install I believe since I never install it myself. And no, it didn't present any problems. The problems begun maybe 3 weeks after that. It connects fine and the internet is just as fast and reliable. But there is this glitch as if something interrupts the connection or the asterisk sound comes up and if you're writing anything it gets interrupted to then resume again, and it happens every 5 sec. I I remove the internet cable the problem goes away. No new build. I put this computer together about 5 years ago and it has performed without a hitch for all these years.
  7. Windows 10 Pro version 1903 installed on 8/10/2019 OS build 18362.295 Processor: Intel ® Core i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50 GHz 3.90 GHz RAM 16.0 GB System type 64-bit x64 based processor
  8. Thank you Digirati, Did my mother board gone bad? Yes it is in my computer and I've did a safe boot and nothing, same problem. What do you think I should do? The diagnostics don't give me much other than "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device detected or resource (DNS server) is not responding" However the connection does work but just keep bleeping every 5 seconds as if you had inserted a flash drive or any other connection. How can I test my hardware at this point? If I remove the ethernet cable it stops. When hardware check runs is says board is working fine (ethernet board that is). Should I re install the system? One clue is, it happened right after I installed antivirus software kaspersky, I did removed it at one point but it didn't make any difference. Please help
  9. No, I could try one more thing with the cable. Not sure because this is the only computer that is wired. Other devices are wireless and no problem. This is a problem with this desktop or the connection to it. I'll try a entire new cable. There is an extension of the cable that runs in the wall but I'll just connect it and bypass the wall.. Thanks for your support!
  10. Thanks, I rebooted the modem, flipped the cables but no changes. Are these the devices you were referring to?
  11. Diagnostic run on Network Problem found Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device detected or resource (DNS server) is not responding The result is a constant blinking of the asterisk alert bell, when internet cable is removed it stops... Thanks
  12. I don't think is a browser issue. All browsers react similarly. Any other window that is open will blink too. And at the same time the windows notification bell will sound. It seems it is some kind of notifications issue that momentarily prevent any action to take place. For example as I write this the bell sound come on and the typing is interrupted. Same thing happens anywhere you're typing something. As I write this I've been interrupted at least 8 times. I've tuned off all notification but that didn't work. Any clues to what's going on? Thanks
  13. Hello, I have this pesky bug in my windows 10. Every 5 seconds or so, the top bar of my browser and any other window blinks to a lighter shade of gray on the top bar. If you're typing anything, a window's alert sound comes up and interrupts your typing. I can continue to type until 5 sec. later it repeats. Not sure what it is. The only clue is that I installed Kaspersky internet security. But after un installing it did not change anything. Please help. Thanks
  14. Ok I fixed the problem by tuning internet protocol version 6(TCP/IPv6) it worked but now I can't printer share...that's not good either. So how can I have my HomeGroup running and still have the PC go to sleep on its own? Anyone with the same problem Thanks
  15. Done that...helped. What I'm looking for is a 3rd party app that would do some enhancing work...
  16. I got an Asus N56DP Windows 8.1 with screen resolution of 1920 X 1080. definetly a great screen but I expect a little more from in. Not a retina display but the fonts are still a little too jagged for my taste. Is there any driver or software that would help with that? Something that would blur the screen just a bit... Thanks
  17. Bought a new laptop, an ASUS N56D. It works great but the touch pad need adjustments. However I can't find the touch pad app, the little icon on the lower right along with other utility apps. How can I find it or install it? Thanks
  18. Thanks for all replies. I think the best is not to change since it's working well. I have a Antec 1200 and after I realized the 900 is just the same but shorter I begin to lust but it's silly. Yes there are advantages in having a full ATX. From the engineering point it's really how big it should be for ventilation and ease of access, expandability. If you consider how large computers were in the 50's a full ATX is a little box, everything is relative. The Antec is really a great box, looks great with all the blue lights and is quiet with fan controls but because it's so large it doesn't heat up that much...
  19. Finally built my system on a full size ATX. Now I look at it and I think it's a monster and maybe I didn't need all that since I only use one graphic card and might only have two HD. But I wonder if its better to keep it since it's all working perfectly. Better ventilation? Anything there worth keeping. Any one for a full ATX out there? Thanks
  20. Have you looked at Antec 1200, you can fit a truck and all the stuff in your basement inside, beatiful blue lights and fans, very easy to use...very happy with it. http://www.amazon.com/Antec-Twelve-Hundred-V3-Gaming/dp/B004INH0FS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1385581898&sr=8-1&keywords=antec+1200+case
  21. Nope it wasn't the case...I think there might be a setting on BIOS or an update which might resolve this
  22. Thanks...that is a good idea...chances of having a short on the reset wire are slim since it never booted while on...will try
  23. Home made computer. Performs beautifully but one glitch, it boot itself at the most random times. I shut it down, sometimes reboot in 2 min. or 15min., 2hs, 8hs just randomly as if someone went there and pushed the button. I removed the power switch wire from MB and stopped so I concluded it was a short on the front panel of my Antec 1200. Took it down to Fremont CA, their actual costumer support center, replaced the top part (I think they did, I didn't see it). Came home and the same problem, my question(s) are? Could the MB reboot itself randomly like that? Should I still suspect the case is bad. How can I further test the case? Does anyone know of a similar case? Why it didn't happen when I removed the power switch? Maybe because I turned the PSU off and then on again? Lot's of head scratching here... Will call Gigabyte and see if they can offer any clues. I guess the final test will have to be: buy an new MB (a better one) and see what happens Any stabbers are greatly appreciated?
  24. I have the latest BIOS updated. The funny thing about this problem was that the computer would turn itself on a random times, like 7 hours later, 4 hours later I even though it was related to AC power issues in my home. After removing the GEFORCE no event. Now I'll call GIGABYTE and ask for a fully supported video card. Yes...a very strange problem just turn on out of the blue at the most random times as if a gosh was in there. Yes I will replace the video card with some fully supported, will ask for help from GIGABYTE
