Pull Mac Address From Disconnected Mobo

I recently built a new computer for my brother. After installing all the old disks into the new computer i realized that i forgot to pull the mac address from his onboard-lan. Is there anyway i can pull up the mac address without having to reconnect all the drives? It's a dell, can i use the service number online to retrieve it?

Mac Address Invalid In Both Flash And Cmos

I suppose this issue could go under motherboards. Anyways let me list what i think is wrong. My physical address (mac address) is reading 00-00-00-00-00
I get this error in the boot screen "mac address invalid in both flash and cmos, press f1 to continue"

This occurred after i updated to latest bios and cleared the cmos. My mistake was i cleared the cmos immediately after the update, where on asrock website they say do so after an inital boot up and shut down. Oh yah i have an asrock dual vista lg775 motherboard, via pt880 pro/ultra chipset. The via lan chipset is vt6103

Basically what i'm trying to do is somehow flash in the mac address, with a proper one. I'm not even sure if i can do that, i may have to rma the board. Asrock website instructed me to fill out a technical report and submit, which i've done already. However i don't like waiting and am trying to fix this bugger myself. I've downloaded the app which runs from dos off of a bootable floppy that is capable of flashing the mac address, however i don't know if it's do able cause i don't have a mac address as of this moment. Will putting in a new one even do anything now? Oh yeah my lan is still working, which is kinda weird considering other sources i've looked at suggested that the lan would not be working if this problem had occurred. Any suggestions?

Change Mac Address Of Bluetooth Dongle

How to change mac address of a bluetooth dongle? I have purchased 3 bluetooth dongles in the past with no problems. They are high end dongles that each have their own unique mac address, and are the same brand and model. Last month i decided to buy a bunch of dongles from ebay. I bought 20 to be exact. They were a dollar a piece and free shipping from hong kong. Yea, i knew to at least expect garbage for that price, but it wasn't a lot of money so i figure i'd take the gamble. They are generic dime sized dongles. I wasn't too worried if they would of be horrible quality due to their price. Just one of my high end dongles costs more than 20 of these cheap ones combined. However, i don't like putting all of my eggs in one basket, so i decided to buy a total of 20 dongles between 3 sellers just in case one seller had bad dongles, especially since they come from hong kong and takes 3 weeks for delivery. I tested each and every one of them on my 1st laptop with my phone. Out of 20, only 1 ended up being bad. Not bad at all. They work wonderfully. Wireless range is about half to 3/4 of the high end dongles so that's not too bad. Well i have lots of pcs and laptops in my house. I decided to install the dongles all at once after testing each one, and something weird was happening. My blackberry was getting confused as to what device to connect to. The device names were all mixed up, i'd have connection failures, etc. I decided to take a look at the mac addresses of each device and noticed that they are all the same! Well actually, each sellers dongle had its own mac address. Each seller's dongle were a little different from eachother. In other words, i have a total of 3 different mac addresses because each seller had their own generic brand/model of dongle. I am glad i decided to split my purchases between different sellers or else i would have ended up with 20 dongles with the exact same mac address, which causes all sorts of crazy problems due to conflicts. The dongles work great on their own, but when trying to use 2 of the dongles from the same seller together, it doesn't work due to the same mac address. Is there any way to change a mac address on these bluetooth dongles/adapters?

Monitor Displays Signal Cable Disconnected

My monitor displays signal cable disconnected what shall i do?

Have you tried plugging in your monitor to a different system unit? If by doing this solves your problem, then i would assume a graphics card problem, or maybe a contact problem of it to the main board. Then, you can try cleaning the graphic card contact. If this didn't work, you probably have a faulty card. Or you may try plugging in a known good monitor to your system unit? If after doing so resolves the problem, then the problem is on the monitor. Signal cables of monitors are the common cause of it, you may try moving the cable while connected to your pc. Replace the cable if possible.

How To Calculate Physical Address ?

Can anyone help me calculate a physical address for a memory location? I know the bus width (bw), segment address (sa), and logical address (la). Memory location #1: bw - 12 bits, sa - a5h, la - 09h

Memory location #2: bw - 20 bits, sa - 2e1h, la - 81bh

The sa and la have to be represented by numbers the size of a register (words) and the final answer has to be in hex.

Stuck At Obtaining Ip Address

I've tried just about every typical wireless internet troubleshooting solution i know of, including resetting the router, and i still can't connect. The best i can do is "limited access. " Windows troubleshooter seems to think that i have entered the wrong security key, but that is not the case. And the problem is not with my computer because i can't connect with my droid either. It gets stuck at "obtaining ip address. " Any ideas?

Ip Address And Router Trouble

We have a desktop computer, a laptop, and an ipod touch. With our router, for some odd reason, we are only "allowed" to use the internet on only one of the devices at a time. For example, right now i am on the laptop (wireless), and if another person in the house wants to use the destop, i have to turn my wifi off cause on the desktop it says that there is an ip address conflict. I'm not sure on how to fix this in order for us to all use the internet at the same time. At first i called the router company (i have a dynex enhanced wireless g router) and they told me that they couldn't help me and that the problem was my network card and that microsoft could help me fix the ip address. So i went and called microsoft, no help. They said that the problem was in part of our internet provider. So, of course, i called my internet provider, and they said that they would have to configure my modem and router for $130. I'm sure there is a way for me to fix this problem without having to pay that much.

Computer Keeps Trying To Acquire Network Address

My acer aspire one won't connect to my linksys router, even though other devices do connect. My acer connected to the router before, but when i got a new router, it just didn't connect, even though my other devices connected fine. When i turn on my computer, on the right hand corner on the bottom pops up and says, "wireless networks detected, click here to connect. " Or something like that. I click it and it gives me the list of available networks to connect to. I click the one i want and it just goes to the point where it tries to connect to the router. It doesn't even ask for a wep password. It just keeps on trying to acquire the network address or something like that.

Renewing Ip Address - Network Problem

Ok well, we recently bought my wife a new computer, and when we did we also bought a 5 port hub (6 if you count the uplink) some ethernet cables so i could hook both of our computers and my ps2 up to our cable modem. Well i got mine working fine, cable modem is plugged into the hub and my computer is plugged up to the hub and mine runs fine. Hers tho, it tells me hers has "no or limited connectivity", if i try to go to repair connection it just sits there forever at "renewing ip address" so anyone have any idea's what i'm doing wrong or what i'm not doing?

To set up mine to work on the hub i went to the network wizard, create new network, then it asked me if i wanted this computer to connect through another computer or if i wanted another computer to connect through this one, i click 'other' then there's an option of 'this computer connects to a hub, and so do other computers on my network' so i chose that for mine then did the same for hers, hers isn't working and mine is so i don't know what's wrong.

Memtest Errors On One Single Memory Address

When running memtest86, a well known test utility, it revealed way too many errors to be healthy, but one thing that i find puzzling is that it's only with one certain pattern that i get a lot of errors, and when i say a lot, it ranges around 6 million errors. It's a 512 mb stick, and for the whole 512 mb on the pattern 00000000-1 it shows nothing but errors/bad data. Besides that it shows about 38 errors on other addresses. This stick is toast i'm guessing?

Invalid Ip Address Disconnects Internet Every 5 Mins

My internet connection has been very unstable lately, and as i discovered, my "ip address type" seems to go from "assigned by dhcp" to "invalid ip address" every now and then. So instead of obtaining an ip address automatically, i manually put in a static ip, and that seemed to solve the problem for a while, but it came back. This time the thing goes from "manually configured" to "invalid ip address". And when that happens my ip address and subnet mask becomes "0. 0. 0". Hence my internet works on and off and it's really annoying.

Wifi Ip Address Not Found - Limited Or No Connectivity

So last night i turned on the laptop and it would connect with my home internet, but it would say limited or no connectivity. When i tried to open internet it would say internet connection not found but when i connected the ethernet cable to it, it would say limited or no connectivity but the internet would open up just fine. I know it's not my internet because the desktop works just fine. The computer thing in the bottom shows that yellow triangle with the exclamation point in the middle. When i opened the wireless thing, it said repair, so i clicked on it and it opened up a little box saying disconnecting, then reconnecting, then trying to find ip address, then it says ip address not found. Help? Suggestions?
