Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Start bar has disappeared and I can't connect to the internet. Most of my other programs such as Adobe, Word, and Excel still work fine. My Real Player works but my Windows Media Player won't. Any ideas what I can do to fix it? It is a Gateway Laptop (MX6440 I think - my computer isn't with me right now).

    I haven't tried to reinstall or repair the operating system (XP). I was told I would lose all my data (thousands of pictures). Is there a way to do this without losing my data? I have tried to copy the pictures into a portable hard drive, but the drop and drag and send to aren't working. The only way I can save a file to the portable drive is to open it, then SAVE AS. That would take me forever.

Word & Excel won't open files when doubleclicked in Windows Explorer

Excel may have "Ignore other applications" selected. See THIS Microsoft Knowledgebase Article.
