You can try downloading and reinstalling the drivers for the card. Take the name of the modem which should have been given in device manager and go to the manufacturers website and download the drivers and install.

If that doesn not work and your modem is a Card device, open your computer and check to see if the modem is inserted correctly.

If the modem has been installed from the start, try to search your recovery CD (hopefully you will have it) for the modems drivers there.

Cant play sound it keeps asking for multimedia audio controller when i install audio driver it states RPC Server not found


It sounds like you have the wrong driver installed or there are more drivers that you need to install and update.

One way to ensure that you install the correct drivers is to go through the Device Manager and update your driver.

This is for a Windows XP system

To Update your drivers through Device Manager, pls do the following:

1. Attach your computer to the internet, make sure you can get on the internet by launching your browser, ie. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari
2. Navigate to Start/Control Panel, System
3. Choose the Hardware Tab and click Device Manager
4. See if there are yellow exclamation marks or question marks listed
5. Select them and right click on each one (you have to do this one by one until you see no more yellow exclamation marks or question marks)
6. Choose Update Driver
7. Follow the prompts to complete (usually by clicking ok to all the prompts)

This is for a Windows Vista or Windows 7 system
1. Connect your computer to the internet and ensure that you have internet connection by launching your browser and surfing to your favorite website.
2. Navigate Start/Control Panel/System
3. On the top left hand corner, click Device Manager
4. Do the same from 5-7 under the Windows XP directions up above.

Again, remember that sometimes drivers are related to something else on the system. Therefore you may need to update one or more drivers. This is the only way to ensure that you get everything.

Let me know how it works out and please don't forget to rate me.

I have a problem with the JPEG Windows Pictures and Fax Viewer. It does not just show one logo that was sent via a professional e-mail, but it will also show photos of nearly every website I go on. So, if...


Wow, that's a new one. I can't imagine how this happened other than you are infected with some Malware, what we used to call Monkey Ware as it monkeyed with your system.

First, I would suggest you visit this website and see what it finds by doing a full system scan of your hard drives.

http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

Once you click to start the scan engine, you will probably be prompted via the yellow bar at the top of your page to allow an Active X controller to be downloaded. This control is how the engine works against your hard drive.

What will happen is that the scanner will likely find a Malware Active X control you got somehow that is allowing all embedded pictures to view your Internet Cache images.

After they scan you will want to change some settings in Internet Explorer, by accessing Internet Options in your Control Panel. Set the History to 1 day and the Internet Cache size to 1MB or less, Zero if it will take it or even better to tell it to not Cache any images, etc.

Any questions on a follow up to this please use the comment box below to ask away.

Sweemissy, i have no ip address on my computer


Sweetmissysu -

There could be any number of issues causing the loss of connectivity - NIC drivers not properly installed/configured, modem/router settings incorrect, etc. I need to get more information from you...

WHen you reinstalled everything, how did you go about doing that? Did you erase/format the hard drive and reinstall Windows, or did you use a Dell recovery CD?

Also, after reinstalling, did you install the network adapter's drivers?

It would be a great help if you could send me a list of problematic system devices. To do this, on your computer:
1. Click Start.
2. Click Run.
3. In the Run dialog, type in "Control Panel" with quotes removed, and click OK.
4. In the Control Panel, open System.
5. At the top of the System Properties screen, you'll see a tab labeled Hardware. Click it.
6. Click the button labeled Device Manager.
7. You should see a list of system devices. In that list, I'll need you to write down and send me all of the devices listed under Other Devices. Also, if you see a category entitled Network Adapters, please send me the names of devices listed in that category.

You can post the list(s) in a response to this thread, and this should give me an idea of what needs to be done on your system.

NEW Norton installed, now I cannot access the internet


hi,
i think your acer laptop comes with its own data protection s/w provided by acer , so it recommended to contact acer or norton because it is recommended to use only one security s/w at a time as they share the common system files for protection

best of luck
