Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Computer hangup I am running anAcerPower 1000 desktop computer with Windows XP. My problem is on occasion when browsing I point the hand with the protruding finger on where I want to go and click. What often happens is that the computer semi-freezes, that is I can move it around, click on something,but nothing happens. The only thing that will workis the exit. I can getout of theprogram but that's all. Something that puzzles me is that sometimes everything worksnormally. And this occurs only in Windows Internet Explorer. A'm open to suggestions.

Temporary freezing like you described can be caused by the site you are trying to get to, having too much traffic, or the site having allot of commercials or ads or media that slows you down until your browser can digest it.

If it happens on the same site all the time, its the site.
If it happens all the time on numerous sites it probably indicates that you need more RAM to surf efficiently.

Thank you and Good luck.

5. Next you will want to click on Update Drive
At this point you will want to select "Browse my computer for the driver software". The reason you want to do this is because if you select "Search automatically for the updated driver software" you will most likely get the default Windows drivers that are already installed.

6. Next you will browse to the driver CD or the place you have the drivers saved on your computer. Note if you just upgraded from Windows XP your old drivers may not work and you will need to find Windows 7 versions of the drivers. However if you have a Windows Vista version of the driver this may work.
After you get the location set click Next

7. At this point you should get a message that states that the drives have been installed.

I keep getting an error message when I start up my laptop. the 2 wire gives me a "corruption has been detected in feature manager, backup file has been loaded", and it will not connect. All other programs...


If the machine is a Dell with DellControlPoint, open start, run then type msconfig and hit enter. Choose the Startup tab and find the startup item named "Dell" with the Command from "C:\Program Files\Dell\Dell Control Point\Connection Manager\Dell.UCM.exe" and uncheck the box. Hit Ok, then reboot your computer.
