Internet connectivity - mouse related?

I recently bought a mouse for my XP stand-alone computer. Upon receipt, I noticed it was windows 95/98/NT compatible with no mention of XP. I plugged it in though and it seems to work fine. Over the last few days, my cable modem has been providing intermittent internet access and losing connectivity on and off. The cable company is coming to look at it this weekend. I'm wondering if using the mouse I referred to above could play any role in my internet problem or is it just coincidental? Thanks. Jeff

Purely coincidental, especially if your mouse was plug and play like 99% of them out there today. My guess is that you are having a totally unrelated problem with your internet. If I was going to troubleshoot it, I would simply remove the mouse and any software that you might have installed with it and then check the internet connection.

Tip

Change User Password from Command Prompt


You can change a Windows User Account password that is on any Windows computer from any other Windows computer regardless of whether the User Account is on a workstation, a stand-alone server, or a Windows domain controller. Additionally, it makes no difference whether the password being changed from a workstation, a stand-alone server, or a Windows domain controller. This is true for any NT 4.0, W2K, XP Pro and Windows Server 2003 computer.
To change a user's password at the command prompt, log on as an administrator and type:

net user danielp * /domain
(This is only an example, use your own username)
When you are prompted to type a password for the user, type the new password, not the existing password. After you type the new password, the system prompts you to retype the password to confirm. The password is now changed.
Alternatively, you can type the following command:

net user danielp 123456 /domain
When you do so, the password changes without prompting you again. This command also enables you to change passwords in a batch file.
Note: If you type these commands on a member server or workstation and you don't add the /domain switch, the command will be performed on the local SAM and NOT on the DC SAM.

I bought a used laptop and I tried to connect it to isp and i used the cd that i recieved with my service. But when i try to install it it says i need nt6 because i only have nt1. how do i get this nt6


I think that the laptop is running Windows NT with Service Pack 1 installed, and the software that you are trying to install requires Windows NT with Service Pack 6 installed.

However, the _bigger_ issue is that Microsoft stopped supporting Windows NT (at any level of Service Packs) several years ago. Therefore, any computer running Windows NT that connects to the Internet is likely to get "hacked" within a few minutes of being connected.

So, my advice is to either "junk" the laptop, or try to find a "Microsoft Windows 2000 Upgrade" CD-ROM and license-key, and update your computer to use Windows 2000. However, Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 2000 in July 2010, i.e., just a few months away.

If you really want "Service Pack 6", find a friend with a CD-writer and Internet access. Access http://www.microsoft.com/downloads and search for 'SP6A' -- download it, burn it to a CD-R, and carry the CD-R disk to your computer, and install it.
Then, run "Windows Update" -- there are many security-fixes that will be required, even after installing 'SP6A'.

Also, you might have difficulty finding anti-virus software that runs under Windows NT !!!!

You can try using a different mouse/keyboard, but the likely solution is to repair the windows install.

I had this issue recently with my mother's computer and had to use the XP CD and do a window's repair.

Hi,

Your best bet before buying a new mouse is to go to the manufacturer's web site of the present mouse and in the Support area see if they have drivers updated for XP.
