The obvious is restart the laptop, but alternatively what you can do is try and find an updated driver. to find out what driver you currently have and who makes it right click my computer and go to manage, then click device manager.

the driver your looking for should be under networking it should have something like "WLAN" the other should have "LAN" once you've found out who makes it go to their website download the latest driver and install test again.

I have an operating system Windows 2000 and when I installed e new version of Skype (5.3) the program refuses to start and show next message: Failed to get proc address for SetIdDirectoryW (kernell32.dll)....


System requirements for Skype 5.3
  • PC running Windows® XP, Vista or 7, both 32- and 64-bit operating systems.
  • Internet connection - broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
  • Speakers and microphone - built-in or separate.
  • For voice calls recommend broadband connection with 100 kbps down / 100 kbps up.
  • For group video calling everyone on the call needs Skype 5.0 for Windows or Mac or higher plus webcams, and at least one person needs a group video calling subscription. For best quality we recommend you use a high-speed broadband connection of 4Mbps down / 512kbps up and a computer with a Core 2 Duo 1.8 GHz processor. As a minimum you'll need a high-speed broad connection of 512kbps down / 128kbps up and a computer with a 1 GHz processor.
Note :Please consider in Processor, RAM, VGA and harddisk. those the main thing to decide whatever Skype 5.3 for Windows can be installed properly in computer system or not. If one of those minimum requirements can't be achieved by your hardware, please don't even try to install Skype 5.3for Windows.. Leave comment if you have something to ask!!

My enet management in acer empowering technology is not working


If you do not know how to configure a profile and auto doesn't fly then you can just uninstall the Acer proprietary Empowerment and let Windows manage your wireless connection. This is Acer-specific technology so if you want to use it then research the Acer manual for setting up profiles. ~Steve
