Look at the connector on the back of the laptop does it have 4 or 8 gold pins? You maybe by mistake trying to plug itinto the modem port 4 pins look for a slitly bigger connector lan 8 pins should slide on like a glove.

Are you saying that the Ethernet cable will not fit in the Ethernet socket?

It's not clear what exactly you mean. Generally, you don't connect two computers together using a USB cord. You can use a "cross-over ethernet cable" to connect the network jack of one computer to another computer. This allows transferring files and/or sharing an internet connection. If you have a wireless router you can enable Windows "File and Printer Sharing" on each computer and transfer files that way. Please provide more details of what you're trying to accomplish by connecting the computers together with a USB cable, and we may be able to give you a more specific answer.

Tip

What to do when the computer powers up - but the screen stays blank


Follow these methods, each one at a time, to fix your problem:

A) Unplug the power cord from the computer. Press the power button of the computer (yes, without any electricity source connected!) several times; Reconnect the cable and power-up normally.

B) Double-check to see if ALL the rear connections are firmly connected.

C) Test your monitor with a different computer, to see if it works well.
Alternately, try a different monitor with your own computer to see if the problem persists. Also, try using other VGA or DVI cable (the cable that connects the computer with the monitor).

D) Open the computer case and look for any blown capacitors (these are electrical tube-shaped component. When they're blown/damaged their top is NOT flat), especially around the CPU area. If you find any - Your motherboard's DEAD. Sorry. It needs to be replaced! If you don't find any - proceed...

E) Clean dirt and dust! Pay special attention to the CPU heatsink and it's fan.

F) Remove, clean and restore the memory (RAM) modules (a rectangle electronic circuit, containing lots of chips on it; Usually placed to the right on the CPU) and the graphic adapter (if it's an extension card). Try using different slots for the memory modules, if there are any.

G) Replace/test another power supply (looks like big metal box with lots of power cords connected to it).

H) Replace/test with other memory modules. Make sure they fit your computer configurations, in terms of speed (Mhz) and size (GB/MB).

I) Replace/test with other graphic adapter:
* Remove the graphic card and use the onborad adapter, if there's any.
* Remove the graphic card and use other one.

If none of the above worked for you - your motherboard probably faulty. In that case, you'll have to have it replaced. It can also be a problem with the CPU itself - but this is very uncommon.

GOOD LUCK!

Clarification: These tips are for when NOTHING is shown on the screen at all ("No Signal" messages considered as "nothing" in that matter)! If you do see something on your screen, the analysis and the solution might be different!

Network cable connection not recognized


Make sure the LAN driver is installed and working.
The LAN cable maybe faulty, try another one.
If the LAN cable is a red one then it most likely a crossover LAN cable. This cable is used to connect two computers together without a LAN hub or router.

Which cords and/or plugs should I use inorder to connect a projector to a computer


if your desktop doesn't have a standard vga socket then you can get a dvi adapter that fits onto the end of a vga lead. you will still need a seperate cable for audio as a dvi connection only does video.

How do i connect my 5.1 speakers to my desktop computer


Know Your Speaker SystemGenerally in systems all the cables from the speakers are connected to the subwoofer which comes with a set of wires to connect, that includes : a power cord to connect the system to the AC outlet, a power connector to feed the subwoofer and the subwoofer wires. Your system should come with at least three set of cables for connecting your speaker system to your PC. These cables are usually colored to help with the installation.imageview-thumb.jpg

Start ConnectingYou should connect the cables matching the colors on the jacks located on the subwoofer. After connecting all these cable, its time to connect the rest of the cables like power, subwoofer and speakers. This is very easy if you pay attention to the subwoofer connection then you’d be able to follow the polarity that is written on the connectors. In the end, all your cables would be connected perfectly.

The above pic shows you all the ports to connect the wires to with all the color coded mannerism.
Knowing Your ComputerAll computers have atleast three connectors
  • Line-In.
  • Line-out.
  • Mic.
Computers with six channel audio systems have two more connectors, i.e
  • rear out.
  • center/subwoofer out.
You’ll need to make sure if you have these extra connecters by checking the back side of your computer.
imageviewphp-thumb.jpg
If your computer doesn’t have these two extra outputs: rear out and center/subwoofer out, it’s a disadvantage, you’d be able to connect your 5.1 anyway but you would require to use the line in and mic-in plugs as an alternative. Of course there is a really big disadvantage in using this configuration: you cannot use your microphone or line in inputs and your 5.1 speaker system at the same time. This is the reason that you should buy a motherboard with 5.1 system built in.
Configuration Of Computers With 5.1 Supporting Motherboards
  • Front cable: To Line out.
  • Rear cable: To the Rear-Out
  • Center/Subwoofer cable : To Center/Subwoofer Out.
Configuration Of Computers Without 5.1 Supporting Motherboards
  • Front cable: To Line-out.
  • Rear cable: To Line in.
  • Center/Subwoofer cable: To Mic-in.
Software ConfigurationAfter every single connection has been made, its time to setup audio configuration in operating system. Since we had Realtec drivers on our PC, Double clicking it opened up Speaker Configuration tab. In various options you should select 6 channel mode for 5.1 speaker output and check Only surround-kit if your PC has the separated rear and center/subwoofer outputs and leave it if you don’t.

Now everything is done, you are completely ready to enjoy surround sound experience and don’t forget to leave comments if you find this post useful.

USB data transfer from old to new computer


You cannot directly link a Windows 98 computer to another computer via USB(without special hardware). The easiest way to do what you are trying to accomplish would be to hook both computers up to a router and share files over a network.

Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D
