Question about Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Connection Problems I have a Dell 4500. Recently I began having connection problems. I run Windows XP by dial up with Earthlink as the browser. When I try to connect, my start page tells me I am 'Connected' and, I can even send and receive e-mails. But, the screen tells me that it Cannot Display the Webpage with the 'Diagnose Connection Problems' bar showing. When I do this, I am told that the cable between the computer and the modem is damaged or not connected and something about the ethernet cable. How can I be able to send and receive e-mails and not connect to Internet Explorer and/or have this problems with the modem/computer. I ran modem helper and it said that the modem was OK. I do not know the brand of modem. It was factory installed. Thanks.

If you are able to send and recieve emails then your dial-up modem is working. For some reason your "Earthlink Browser" is looking for a high speed connection,(like DSL or Road Runner cable). Easiest step to take would be to re-install your Earthlink dial-up software program, but remove existing program under "Control Panel" (Add or Remove Programs).

Wireless zero configuration is the feature of Windows XP that allows Windows to detect the available wireless networks and automatically connect to the most preferred wireless network.

It is enabled by the Wireless Zero Configuration service in Windows XP. It provides auto wireless network detection when you switch on the computer.
Follow the steps below to verify that the service is running:
1. Go to Start and right click My Computer. Select and click Manage.
2. Computer Management window will appear. Under Services and Applications, select Services.
3. Check for the service Wireless Zero Configuration. Make sure that it is started and that the startup type is set to automatic.

autostart-wireless-zero.jpgIf your wireless adapter driver does not support wireless auto onfiguration, you will notice the following:
- The network adapter does not appear as a wireless network adapter in Network Connections. It appears as a LAN adapter, similar to an Ethernet connection.
- The properties of the wireless connection do not have a Wireless Networks tab.
- You do not receive a Windows XP notification bar message indicating that wireless networks are available.
To get the most out of your Windows XP wireless experience, you should contact wireless adapter manufacturer to obtain the latest version of the drivers that support this XP feature.
If not, you must manually configure wireless network settings using the configuration software supplied with the wireless network adapter.

Keep getting internet connection error#633


I Believe what is happening is that you have more than one connection trying to connect either that or is connected what I would suggest doing is checking your network connections. to do that you must do the following.
If using
1.XP: Go to start/run/type in ncpa.cpl and hit ok
vista: go to start/search bar/type ncpa.cpl
same with windows 7
2.If you are using a router wirelessly the connection will be a wireless connection however if you are connected with and ethernet cable it will say Local Area Connection.
3.Right click on the connection you are not using and hit disable.
4.If you have a Dial up connection that you don't use anymore you should delete it.
5.try the web browser "I hope this helped you out"

Missing Windows XP Product Key-Need to Reinstall/Repair XP


I'm assuming you have quite a lot of computer savvy??? You'll need to access that drive and get the original key off it. Try connecting the drive to another pc and see if you can get to the Windows folder. Once there, use Jellybean Keyfinder to navigate to the Windows folder in that drive and take note of the OS key. From there you can reformat and use the existing key.

4. Find the printer and right click it!
5 Select Connect... and wait for the drivers to install.

this should install the print drivers and install the printer on your computer. the printer should now be available in print dialogs i.e. word etc etc and from the Control Panel > Printers window.

Blue Screen error 0x00000024


Hi,

You have first to determine if it's a hardware or software problem.
Hardware, verify that your devices are plug in correctly and fitted. It may be necessary to remove the video card and memory, clean the gold contacts and re-insert/re-seat back;
Software, try running in Safe Mode and/or Last Known Good Configuration. You may need ti uninstall any recent updates/software before the BSOD/conflict began.

Hope this be of some initial help/idea. Post back how things turned up so we can figure other possibilities or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
