This has happened to me in a similar way; and mine was to where I had a connection, and yahoo messenger, itunes, other things would open; but when I would try to open internet explorer, it would hang, then look like it was opening, then go right to a cannot connect page. What I found out is that I had gotten some serious trojans/virus from a download. After everything that I could think of, ie system restore, redownloading IE 8, running antivirus and removing some of the trojans, and few other things, I failed, and so came to the conclusion that I had to just reformat the hard drive, wipe it clean, and then reinstall my operating system. After I did that, which was like 8 months ago, I haven't had one problem with connecting to any page. No problem at all. I hope this helps.

    If you have only had your computer for a couple of weeks, then another option for you is to take it back/send it back to where you bought it from and either request a repair or a replacement.

Is it possible to update all drivers on my laptop pc

Internet Explorer has nothing to do with a driver. It's just the worst browser around but Gates was smart enough to get it packaged with every system sold. You can try getting into your Internet Options in the Control Panel and set Internet Explorer back to it's default settings under the Advanced tab.

Go download some other browsers and enhance your surfing experience.
Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and install it from Mozilla's site. Unlike Internet Explorer, it does not take 30 minutes to install. It will be up and running in less than 3 minutes. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome. Just put "Download Opera" in the google search and download and install it. Put "Download Google Chrome" in the google search and download and install it.They are faster and safer than Internet Explorer. Most times they work even when a virus has shut Internet Explorer down.

DELL XPS M1330 battery is not detected.

Boot to the BIOS and see if the battery status shows normally there. If it does, try uninstalling and reinstalling the quickset utility.

If the battery status doesn't show normally in BIOS then you will likely need to replace the battery.
