Can anyone Help me.

Anyone out there that can help me with computer problems, I have just had a new hard drive fitted and yesterday as I was trying to send emails they would not go instead I was getting a yellow thing and error next to it, what then appears after trying to send email is a notification saying Server Unexpectantly terminated the connection, possible cause server network problems, I phoned the computer man and he checked the server out, “Virgin” and he said they had no problem,, so I was hoping someone out there could advise me if there is anything I can do to rectify it myself,

I dont know much about computers but i googled the message and wondered if this would help?

dont blame you for not having that computer man back.

21 Jan, 2012

 

Hi Yorks..
I googled "server unexpectedly terminated" and that leads to various threads of advice which might be useful..

good luck with getting it fixed ..

21 Jan, 2012

 

thanks Sticki thanks Terra, will check it out.

21 Jan, 2012

 

When was your email account last working Yorkshire?

21 Jan, 2012

 

Hi Yorkshire, I am with Virgin and do not have any problems, is your email account/address entered correctly,when you had a new hard drive fitted what was the reason

21 Jan, 2012

 

Friday Pimpernel, started having these problems yesterday morning, its like a yellow triangle that comes up with a exclamation mark in the middle and error next to it,

21 Jan, 2012

 

Hi oldcrock, yes I have been emailing since I got the computer back it just started yesterday morning doing it,

21 Jan, 2012

 

Have you tried System restore ?

If you restore your computer to a date and time when you know it was working correctly.

21 Jan, 2012

 

Hi Yorkshire who is your internet provider, as Pimpernel as advised you can restore your computer to an earlier time when everything was working fine

21 Jan, 2012

 

Internet provider is Virgin, my daughter said she will talk me through how to restore as you both suggest, to be honest I am not the brightest spark when it comes to computers,

21 Jan, 2012

 

but you have the sense to ask for help when you need it yorks, dont give up!!

21 Jan, 2012

 

I told you I am on the same lay line yorkshire..I have had over 400 updates in 4 days and twice had the same error message.

System restore has [touch wood] sorted things out. i am with BT so it is not a problem with Virgin.

21 Jan, 2012

 

not given up yet Stick, I know what you mean about updates Pimpernel, I had over 200 in 2 days, if my daughter phones later I will do as she tells me, thanks for trying for me,

21 Jan, 2012

 

good on you!!!

21 Jan, 2012

 

Fingers crossed you get it sorted out, Yorkshire - my computer baffles and infuriates me on a very regular basis, and following technical instructions in a foreign language is just not my forte. Luckily, the last little glitch, after 2 days of torn hair and shouting at the screen, righted itself overnight. I've still no idea why, I'm just grateful.

21 Jan, 2012

 

I have been getting that yellow triangle on my laptop over the past few days..It says I am connected but Its like it has been stopped somehow..although when i go to connections it says im still connected..I'm with TALK TALK
It hasnt been happening on the gomputer..jsut the laptop.//weird..
i tried a system restore but its still happening ......

21 Jan, 2012

 

I've just lost my connection again.. I think it's all the updates. No problem with the laptop but I don't like using that.

21 Jan, 2012

 

My In-Laws have Talk-Talk, Pixi - they have nothing good to say about it, and have had endless problems: perhaps it's the same for you.

21 Jan, 2012

 

Been with them for abot 8yrs now..not had many problems at all. Just been past few days really :)

21 Jan, 2012

 

I had that error message the other day too! It appeared to right itself after a few hours. I put it down to Gremlins! ;o)

22 Jan, 2012

 

Ah must be something international then? If quite a few of us got it? My laptop was actually ok last night..for 3hours :))))))))))

22 Jan, 2012

 

Thanks everyone for your help, its still the same three days on, no choice but to get the computer man back tomorow, I will let you all know the outcome,

22 Jan, 2012

 

Hi Yorkshire pity you do not live near to stockport I would have had a look at it for you,

22 Jan, 2012

 

that is really kind of you, thanks, my daughter is very good with computers but she is 200 mile away, she has just phoned me and she is baffled by it,

22 Jan, 2012

 

Well Yorkshire the offers there if needed cheers

22 Jan, 2012

 

I know and you are so kind, shame we live a long way apart.

22 Jan, 2012

 

Try system restore Yorkshire
1) Go to start
2) ALL programs
3) System tools
4) System restore

You can restore it to an earlier time
Then restart computer

Thats what i did on the laptop and it seems ok now. :)))
Good luck with it..wish I was nearer you.

22 Jan, 2012

 

Yes..I agree Restore to Friday the 20th when it was last working.

22 Jan, 2012

 

Been into all programmes and there is no system tools to be seen, can you tell me where to look, I have been through all programmes thoroughly

22 Jan, 2012

 

Just sent you a PM yorkie..

22 Jan, 2012

 

if you look at the bottom of the start box there is a search option ~ you could put system tools into that.

22 Jan, 2012

 

Nice to hear you Yorkie...Fingers Crossed

22 Jan, 2012

 

Oh P it didn't work, never mind, thank you for trying,

22 Jan, 2012

 

Hmm...That was very Quick!

22 Jan, 2012

 

sent you PM, it closed down and re started then I tried sending an email to my husbands lap top but the same thing came up again,

22 Jan, 2012

 

Now thinking it may be your internet server has not been set correctly in internet options..I can't do that over the phone..:0/

22 Jan, 2012

 

no problem, its seems slow also, the chap has had my money so he will have to come out and sort it now, luckily he lives in my village and if I drive down he will come back with me, thank you so much, I will let you know how things are tomorrow,

22 Jan, 2012

 

Ok ..Good luck.

22 Jan, 2012

 

Wonderful thing, technology......! However did we manage without it?

22 Jan, 2012

 

I didn't go wrong..coz we didn't have it!

22 Jan, 2012

 

Good luck Yorks ... You have support here ...

Tell the computer chap that THOUSANDS of people on your garden forum are waiting to find out how he helps you sort out the problem ;o)

22 Jan, 2012

 

Hi Yorkshire what system do you have on your computer windows XP windows Vista windows 7

22 Jan, 2012

 

hope you got it fixed val, im on talk talk and i find things ok with them, its all about luck i think, i think all network providers have their problems,
but going back to a date when it worked would be a good idea, or check if the email you use is set to be your primery one, may have been changed.

22 Jan, 2012

 

isn't there a phone helpline? most isp's have one, but some charge and not cheap rate, either (that's why I went for o2, free phone calls 24/7 AND they're in this country, not farmed out to people reading off screens in India!)

Finding a good pc tech is always a prob: one can find plenty advertising, but how does one know if they're any good? Word-of-mouth is the best recommendation - maybe ask friends, family, etc if they've used anybody that was any good

The good thing about System Restore is that you can always undo it later - if you try and it don't work, you can undo what you just did. *s* I try never to fiddle with my pc if i'm not sure I can undo anything, just in case I do something terminal!

22 Jan, 2012

 

We have a brilliant, self-taught but infallible computer guy. Problem is, he's a chronic depressive, with a love of alcohol and an impenetrable Calabrese accent. He tends not to come out, but will try to tell you what to do to put things right, giving directions over the 'phone. Shame you can't see hand gesticulations over the 'phone - I have terrible difficulties understanding him.

22 Jan, 2012

 

Well ..I do me best Gattina!

22 Jan, 2012

 

lol

22 Jan, 2012

 

Well, I know, Darling, and I do appreciate it, but you really MUST do something about that accent!

22 Jan, 2012

 

Yorks..see my response up above..go to start, all programmes, then I should have said accessories..setem tools then system restore..you should be able to do it. :)

22 Jan, 2012

 

Been done Pixi...The Problem still there after the new restore point. Grr

22 Jan, 2012

 

AH sry..:)

22 Jan, 2012

 

Good luck with this today Yorkshire..I'm sure it will be an easy fix.

23 Jan, 2012

 

lol the question's always easy when one knows the answer ...

23 Jan, 2012

 

All the best Yorkshire, hope it gets fixed.

23 Jan, 2012

 

Afternoon you wonderful lot out there, well Computer man came at half ten, he was quite baffled by it too so he phoned NTL to be told for days now they have a massive problem, please don't ask what or how he did it I really don't know, what I do know is they talked him through and he had something on screen and they told him to remove the NTL address and type in Virgin Media, this he did and Hey Presto it sorted it all out, email is now fine, they did say that it would not have worked if he had not phoned, I thought I would have to change for email address but I haven't, I would like to thank you all so much for trying to help, and to Pimpernel, thank you for yesterday I really appreciated having you on the end of the phone, x

23 Jan, 2012

 

Aww You are very welcome...Glad it is sorted out now.

23 Jan, 2012

 

good to hear, Yorkshire

the thing to do now, if you can , is to create a Restore Point, so tht the pc will "remember" the settings as they are now, and (heaven forbid) if you should get any trouble in future, you could try restoring it back to its present setting - ie working!

23 Jan, 2012

 

thank you P, what would I do without you, xx Fran the computer man was doing so much I don't know if he did a restore point, I hate technical things, my daughter calls us silver servers, I call us golden oldies,

23 Jan, 2012

 

SO glad you got it all fixed. :)
Now my oen website has been declared unsafe!!!!!!! I contacted freewebs and they said there has been a huge problem! Nothing I can do about it all. SOme hackers or something! Why are people so horrid!
C'est la vie eh?

23 Jan, 2012

 

Oh Pixie, that is so dreaful, I really am sorry to hear this, any idea what has happend to your website, your right and being very polite when you say some people are horrid, its not what I would have said, let us know how you go on with it,

23 Jan, 2012

 

Well its not what I would have said either but I'm on Goy!!!!! lol
THey said it would take a few days. Cant do anything myself.
:)))

23 Jan, 2012

 

same here with the email problem, said nobody could have sorted it for me, I am sick for you re your website, make sure you let us know when you hear something,

23 Jan, 2012

 

Be Glad when January is done Yorkshire..Just back from the Hospital..Nephews lung collapsed this morning..He is Ok...It never rains..

23 Jan, 2012

 

all the best for your nephew pimpernel, that must have been a shock.

23 Jan, 2012

 

It is a family thing Sticki..It happens sometimes if they are tall and very slim..Both my female cousins had this happen as well..one was 17 and 6ft 5 the other 16 and 6ft 6...Thank heavens for being short.

23 Jan, 2012

 

that is tall, i havent heard of it happening. my son is the tallest at 6 foot though.

23 Jan, 2012

 

Hope your nephew is ok Pimp :)
Website is ok now Yorks! :))

23 Jan, 2012

 

Thanks Pixi..

24 Jan, 2012

 

Come on, Pim, I've seen you, and there is no way you could be described as short. OK, so you aren't exactly the post office tower.........
It makes me so pleased that I am so untechnical that I haven't got a website: it simplifies things so much......

24 Jan, 2012

 

Sorry to hear about your nephew Pimp, hope he will soon be fine again, glad your website is o.k. now Pixie, I was sick for you yesterday,

24 Jan, 2012

 

Been following this blog with interest, so pleased you have it fixed at long last, apart from knowing about system restore my knowledge is more or less zilch so did feel for you Yorkie as I have been in similar situations over the years.
Sorry to hear about your nephew Pimpernel, hope he makes a swift recovery...

24 Jan, 2012

 

Hi Lin, computers are fine when working but awful when they go wrong, got it all sorted out now thank goodness,

24 Jan, 2012

 

really glad to hear that.

24 Jan, 2012

 

Thanks Yorkie & Lincs..He' s been moved to a general ward so I guess he is on the mend..worry about infections though there are a lot of colds doing the rounds.

24 Jan, 2012

 

glad he has been moved, colds, tell me about them, my husband still has his 5 weeks on,

24 Jan, 2012

 

We've all got long-lasting colds, sore throats and catarrh here, too. Nothing terribly serious, but we can't throw them off. Are we all getting resistant strains of bugs?

24 Jan, 2012

 

Same here had chest/sinus infection along with cold..still lots of catarrh and stuff...ewwwwww

25 Jan, 2012

 

So glad your computer is fixed now Val, I dread anything going wrong with mine. It always seems to be updates that cause most of the problems I have experienced and thank goodness for system restore........ T had to cancel a hernia opp this week as he still has a lingering cold and chesty cough. That's why I was up at 3am today, his cough is a nuisance.

2 Feb, 2012

 

believe me me H/B we have had dreadful coughs and colds, Ralph still has his 6 weeks on, had to have a new hard drive in my computer, £85, then I could not get email, another £10 to get that sorted, hope T gets in for that Op soon

2 Feb, 2012

 

4 of the lads at work have had hernia OPs..They're fit as fiddles now...

Nephew is back in intensive care they can't re-inflate his lung..So looks like an Op any day now, they have said once he is patched it will never blow again..But he has to have a full body scan as they want to know the cause of this...

2 Feb, 2012

 

let us know how the poor lad goes on Pimpernell, I am really sorry to hear this news, x

2 Feb, 2012

 

Will do...I am sure he will be fine. Funny thing is he works at the Hospital, his manager has visited him in intensive care to tell him to get a Fit Note in by saturday!

2 Feb, 2012

 

I don't believe it! You're making it up, surely, Pim?

2 Feb, 2012

 

No Gattina it is true..Whythy Hospital is where he works.

2 Feb, 2012

 

Wythenshawe, I imagine, or Withington? I reckon Wythie is one of the best hospitals in the country - they saved our friend last year under very sudden, serious and unforeseen circumstances. She was minutes away from death. Your nephew should be in good hands. Can't speak for the non-medical and nursing staff.....

2 Feb, 2012

 

Wythenshawe..It certainly is one of the best.

2 Feb, 2012

 

Hope he gets better soon.

2 Feb, 2012

 

Well that was quick...His lung has been inflated without an OP and stayed full overnight and through till now. Moved to the Transplant ward...where they have the right equiptment. It's looking good.

3 Feb, 2012

 

Great news Pimpernel, thanks for the update, keep them coming won't you,x

3 Feb, 2012

 

I have only come accross 2 patients with this problem, both of them very tall and thin. One was a really fit drummer. They don't always know what causes spontaneous pneumothorax. It must be really scary for them when it happens. The good thing is it's treatable. I am glad to hear that your nephew is recovering well.

3 Feb, 2012

 

Hooray!

3 Feb, 2012

 

Hooray..Indeed, I know he was terrified of having an Op. This is his first illness, I think it has shocked him silly and made him realise he is not immortal.

Fingers crossed and best wishes to Yorkshires daughter now...Glad she is a little better Yorks

3 Feb, 2012

 

long way to go Pimpernel but many thanks,

3 Feb, 2012
