I always thought W4NKA would be good, but they wouldn't let me have it.

...and Mrs TB is nagging me for pressie ideas.

I have absolutely no idea beyond what I've already told her - a piece of polystyrene and a small box of electronics with wires hanging out.

The ring wire acts as a decent aerial. The usual problem is it injects noise onto the B leg, which causes (mostly CRC) errors, and ADSL resyncs. Generally worse in hostile RF areas, or when Christmas lights are on/flashing.

In this case, sounds like one or more of the devices are electrically noisy, and the ring wire is picking that up.  Suspect Sammy needs a chat with some of the devices ;)

Its neither.

Ignore crap your read on the Internet about OBDI and OBDII, as its all 'dangle berries' for non US destined cars.

European destined cars had to comply to EOBD from 2001 (petrol) or 2003 (diesel).

For a 3.0l, you need a system capable of reading the proprietry protocols used.

What screen type was the original?

It thinks it has a GPO being applied.

Assuming it never has been connected to an AD, it could be a piece of malware has done it.  You may find it in gpedit.msc, or look in the various Policies/Microsoft area of the registry, such as HKLM/Software/Policies


But being a desktop, I wouldn't break around. It could be rebuilt in under 10mins...

So as Kevin Wood says, something is emitting nasty frequencies.

*UPDATE*

Removing the ring wire from the master fixed it!
That should have been disconnected back in the days when you had ADSL ;D

If I disable 'Windows Connect Now' they disappear. :y
You are completely and utterly missing the point.

If your hardware is allowing other people on your network, it needs replacing. If your PC drivers are looking for non connected Wifis when its connected to a known network, it needs changing.

Some extra information: the old one had 3 aluminium contacts on the top to set the date etc. with 2 buttons above the display.

The new one doesn't have that and the housing was slightly different so it didn't fit in the dashboard. Luckely the new complete display, with printcard and everything, fitted exactly in the old black housing and then, ofcourse, also fitted in the dashboard. However, no sign of life and now, also, the fuel gauge doesn't move. Is it going from bad to worse?
Sounds like replacement display is the wrong type.

With the NCDx system, you cant randomly change parts, due to the security coding.

Also, check the devices in question (Android, router and TV) haven't been pwned. It might be they are flattening the router.

Additionally, if uPnP is enabled on router, disable that (which everyone should anyway)

I think quite a few of us may have laughed at ,or told a joke that was not PC or in quite bad taste , I know i have .
Any joke has to pick on someone.  When I was a kid, all jokes started "An Englishman, Scotsman and Irishman".  I also go to see Kevin B Wilson when he's over, but my non-English-descent* mates know I ain't racist, and my female mates know I ain't sexist.

Trouble is, we have bred a whole (useless) society of professional moaners.



*I think that is politically correct enough not to cause public offense.  What I call my friends privately, to their face when arsing around telling jokes, is between me and my mates.  There, hope that settles the 'flakes, and the waste of oxygen that Opti has on his profile.
