I can't connect wirelessly or with an ethernet cable. I downloaded a driver; that didn't work.I downloaded the driver for my Intel(R) Pro/100 VE Network Adapter from the Intel web site. I thought I needed this driver based on other advice (and also because under device manager I was seeing a red X next to it. I installed the driver, enabled the adapter (which now I suspect may have been what I needed to do all along to make the red X go away, but nothing has changed.Also, before anyone asks: I don't have any software from my ISP. I have a cable modem and a Mac Airport station. I started out trying to connect wirelessly -- my computer could detect the wireless network but not connect -- and then I tried connecting via ethernet cable to the modem, which was also unsuccessful.
I got sick and tired with the scrunny performance of xp and did a clean reinstall (after backing up most of teh files.). Now reinstalled and cant get access to internet, my laptop connected to the router dsl connection works fine but when I connect my pc and set up a connection it ends up trying to dial in whereas I use the ethernet, also the ethernet doesnt show any drivers (and I dont have a driver backup disk).I have access via another computer to download from the internet, so can anyone help me with sites/softwares that can determin the required drivers.

I reinstalled Windows XP on my Dell Dimension 3000 and now the Internet is not working. Some background-- the installation disk I used came with a different model Dell computer that I no longer have. I didn't have an XP disk or any driver disks for the Dell Dimension 3000. I went and installed the following two drivers on the computer (which I downloaded to a disk from Dell's website on another computer) based on suggestions from other forums but it's still not working: the Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility and the Intel (R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection. When I go to device manager, under other devices there are yellow question marks next to "Ethernet Controller" and "Multimedia Audio Controller." Note that my internet connection is a cable connection and the motorola modem is hooked up to a belkin 54g router. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem so I can get back on the Internet?
A few weeks ago, I received a blue screen of death that would not get off my computer. I had the Windows Antivirus Pro Virus that would not go away. I am going to school tomororw and needed this off my computer. So I decided to wipe the hard drive clean with the Dell CDs that came with this purchase. I downloaded Windows XP and some of the drivers. Some of the drivers that i tried to download say they downloaded but then do not come up. Broadcom440x10/100 is saying the network cable is unplugged, I have no idea what that means and internet will not work. What can I do manually to make this work?
here's my first problem I can't fix, Heres what I've tried so far:I've reinstalling my Printer, and it still doesnt print I've tried going into Internet Options and sorting out the sites and that..When I try to print from the internet, or even different programs, I get that "Send Error report" thing, and after that it closes. I'm so frustrated!!!! can anyone help?
I recently had to reformat and reinstall windows xp due to a virus, which i have done several times before, but not on this computer (bought it refurbished less than a year ago), and have never had a problem doing so..But this time, when I reinstalled windows, on start-up my (hi-speed) internet connection didnt work (no icon on bottom right bar), same with my sound card (also no icon).
I left in a hurry yesterday and forgot to close some programs (specifically, Outlook 2003) and run a full virus scan. When I checked the computer this morning it looks like Windows XP had reinstalled itself! The items listed below are all DIFFERENT than what I normally see on my computer. To wit:
1. My Desktop was totally rearranged; all the icons were placed on the left side of the screened and arranged in alphabetical order. 2. A pop-up window appeared that sayed something like Setting Preferences and proceeded to set preferences for such things as Outlook Express (which I never use), etc. 3. Control Panel was no longer in Classic View. 4. The Taskbar was rearranged and the Quick Launch bar had disappeared. 5. The Start panel showed only IE, Outlook, MSN, Windows Media Player, Windows Messenger, Tour Windows XP, Files and Transfer Wizard. This is usually what the Start panel looks like with a new Windows XP installation but is nothing like what my Start panel looked like the day before! 6. The Language Bar was showing. 7. All Folder views were showing as icons. I previously had all my Folder views set to display Details. 8. The Event Logs seemed to be missing. The System Log showed no log entries after 5/29/2008. The Security Log had ONE entry (Audit) dated 7/21/2006. The Application Log had no entries dated after 5/15/2008!
I did a full virus scan using PrevX and BitDefender. No malware showed up. Finally, I decided to do a System Restore back to a restore point taken on 4/28/2010 (two days ago). Everything now looks as it did BEFORE I got onto the computer this morning.
My computer wasn't working right, so I re-installed Windows XP with the CD-ROM that came with the computer.After I re-installed Windows XP, all my files and programs have been deleted, and everything went to the lowest performance(meaning stuck in the 640x480 resolution and the 16-bit color)I am unable to change the resolution even by doing what the trouble shoot tells me to do
I am having problems with IE7 crashing. I have run all spyware and adware programs, I even uninstalled them as well as some other programs that I thought might be causing problems. I disabled the shell extensions that were not Microsoft or Windows IE.
I monitor calls on a site--I call up popups that contain the calls--I go along fine and then out of no where the windows freeze up and I cant get out. Then i get the "IE needs to close"I have been working on this site for 3 years now and never had a problem. I do this at my day job too and I haven't had any problems. I am running Windows XP, Serv Pak 2, IE7 and Bellsouth DSL FastAccess Extreme
Any idea what I could do next? Please let me know Thanks Livefury
I recently reinstalled XP home on my Dell Dimension 8250 and now it won't see my Actiontec GT704-WG modem. Modem/router working just fine, am wireless online with it on my laptop right now, all lights green. Have checked TCP/IP and DNS to automatically detect in settings IE will not let me log onto router w/ "dslmodem" or "192.168.0.1" I get "The page cannot be displayed".When I run a repair connection on my "LAN or High-Speed Internet" I get the following message: "The following steps of the repair operation failed: Renewing the IP address. Please contact your network administrator or ISP." Device manager says network adapter is working.Have tried many, many fixes recommended on various sites and forums where problem was nearly identical, but to no avail.Have tried setting up a separate broadband connection via the connection wizard and get "Error 678" for my attempt.Have rebooted, redownloaded drivers etc. and am seeing yellow question marks on Device Manager for Ethernet controller, Multimedia Audio Controller, PCI Input Device & Texas Instruments RNDIS Adapter. I downloaded the ethernet driver from dell (orange light on ethernet cable when plugged in), but the update driver utility would NOT see/find the file no matter where it was downloaded to. Switched the router to USB cable instead. Router shows green light with either when in use. Have rebooted and replugged everything MULTIPLE times in varying order.
Last night the computer worked fine but this morning the only way to start my wifes computer was to insert the Win XP disk. chkdsk /r did not fix the problem so I reinstalled Win XP over the old installation. The computer now starts. The problem is although the C drive shows all the old programs and folders are still there they do not show up when I click start, programs. When I go into add-remove in the control panel, it is empty. How can I move the programs showing on the C drive into the new program folder?
My friend's computer was really messed up last week, and the only way to fix it was to reinstall XP. Once I did so, the monitor and sound did not work right. After messing around, I got the monitor corrected (the computer could not find the drivers) but there still is no sound. The sound card is on the motherboard itself (not removable), but the computer does not see anything but a generic sound card.How can I fix this? Do I open the computer up and try to find the specs on the motherboard, or is there another way? Plus, I don't have access to the computer for a couple days, so I can't tell you what all the specs are.
My younger sister was playing on the "Neopets" website. She loaded up a browser-based game called "Shenkuu River Rush". As I understand, to do this, she needed to download the "3D Life Player". The game worked fine for a while, but then started to run slow, so she restarted the computer. When she restarted, it still ran slow. She was also running the latest version of MSN/Windows Live Messenger. Finally, she loaded up the game and the computer pretty much froze (impossible to do anything, and showed no signs of resolving) so I came and shut it down manually.When I switched it on again, the computer went into the usual "We apologize for the incovenience, but Windows did not start successfully." screen. Thinking nothing of it, I selected "Start Windows Normally" and hit enter. The screen stayed on the Windows XP loading screen for a while, then flickered to a BSOD (I couldn't out what it was at this point) and restarted. This time, I selected "Last Known Good Configuration", and the exact same thing happened. I then tried running it in Safe Mode (both regular and command line)
The computer came with Windows XP loaded on it (I think it might've been Home Edition?), but I had a Windows XP Professional disk so I booted up from that. The "Windows Setup" screen comes up, and at the bottom of the screen, as is routine, the "Setup is loading files..." message is present. Just when all the files are seemingly loaded, and the message at the bottom of the screen flickers to "Setup is loading Windows.
my computer has been running incredibly slow, so I decided to reinstall windows professional and start all over. it works a little better now, but it is still slow on start up and in performance and all the features seem to be larger as if it were in safe-mode, but it is in normal mode. I defragmented the hard drive, checked for errors and even cleaned out the dust inside the computer itself (I don't know if that has any affect on its performance.).also one of the cd drives doesnt seem to work well.it cant find the disk sometimes, could that effect how the xp was installed? i also can't seem to get the internet (broadband) to set up
I have two drives, one for data and one for windows. I had installed vista on C: but after it not liking my programs ive reinstalled XP on what was the C: drive. Its reinstalled fine but now the C: drive is D:!!Is there an easy way to rename the drive?
I have reinstalled Windows XP on this Gateway several times now and it keeps crashing. I have called the PC Virus tech support line provided by Microsoft and they gave me a few different virus removal tools to try. I thought I had fixed the problems and brought the computer back to my friend. A week later it did the same thing. It went to Scan disk and began deleting files. I don't know how to stop this. It may be a virus embedded in the registry keys but am not sure. I really need to remove it from this computer.
My brother-in-law has been having nothing but trouble with his older WinXP machine, so he reinstalled the WinXP with SP2 included. Apparently, he inadvertently installed it to his back-up drive (D) rather than his main drive (C). Everything is working beauifully now. When he boots up the machine, it asks which drive he wants to boot from. He says D and off they go. The problem is that the D drive is only 5GB, of which about 850MB is left. I think he also reinstalled drivers and programs to the D drive.
i have a system running Win XP Pro (Core 2 Duo, 2GB Ram, 250 GB Sata Hdd) software installed Adobe Photoshop, Second Copy & Avast. It had been running fine for the last 6 months and then all of a sudden today on switching on it showed the windows/system32/config/system is corrupt or missing. I reinstalled Windows XP and the other mentioned programs and it ran fine for about 20 mins and then froze up.On a restart it showed the same error as mentioned above. So i quickly reinstalled everything AGAIN..same deal, ran for about 20 mins and began showing the same error.
my existing W2K Pro has become corrupt and needs to be reinstalled. I have the original disk but I use the 4-floppy boot set instead. Tried to do reinstall without fdisking first and all that resulted was a blue screen. Should I clean-up the drive completely first with an fdisk then do a reinstall? If yes, what would be the best way to initiate the fdisk procedure?
