hp p7-1026 won't remember settings

by malzow57HARdN0KS / July 18, 2013 1:43 AM PDT

my HP p7-1026 w/windows 7 won't remember many settings. such as, network security code, facebook & email user names/passwords, and even microphone recording level when using software to convert my LPs to cd. I've tried rebooting after resetting, shutting down for long periods and just leaving it on all the time. is there a option or setting I may have messed up somewhere? thanks for any help.

Create a new user account and be sure it's an admin one. Does it save there?

Also, did it work before? Some settings never save.
And some sites are now telling the browser to forget or not save passwords which could lead to your post.

thanks Bob. never had problems with any logon info before, and they're all remembered on my computer at work. we changed our network code at one point & since then it keeps reverting back to the old code. these are all internet related so I wonder if I accidentally changed a setting. however the LP recording level is just a mic setting. it will stay set for 1 recording, but then goes back from the 10% level to 100% level even without exiting the software. really not that computer savvy, so there's a good chance I screwed up something. thanks again

Time to head to the network control panel and DELETE all the prior connections. Here's a note on how but first, where is the IT staff? They should have solved this in less than 5.

Now that it's gone, you can connect again and configure to remember or not as well as the usual other options. I can't fit a tutorial of all you can do here but it sounds like the old network memory can't forget you problem.

As to the audio thing, no new clue so no new idea. Remember that audio is sadly non-standardized so I can't know what control panels you see or if there is any automatic gain control turned on.

Now that you revealed this is at work, your IT and support should be called in.

sorry. I must have mislead you. the problems are on my home computer. I was trying to compare that I don't have the same logon issues at work. I will try your solution at home soon as I can. can't tell you how much I appreciate the help.
