    Try to reset the winsock settings and follow these:
    To remove the Winsock settings in Microsoft Windows XP, use one of the
    following methods, as appropriate for the Windows XP service pack that is
    installed.

    Determine Your Service Pack Level

    To determine the service pack level that Windows XP is running, use an
    account that has Administrator rights and follow these steps:



    1. Click Start, and then click
      Run.



    2. In the Run window, type
      sysdm.cpl in the Open box, and then click
      OK.



    3. In the System Properties window,
      on the General tab, note the service pack level that appears
      under System. For example, information that resembles the
      following may appear:

      Microsoft Windows XP
      Professional
      Version
      2002
      Service Pack 2

    For Computers Running Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2

    On a computer that is running Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can use
    the Netsh command to reset the Winsock settings to the default
    configuration:



    1. Click Start, and then click
      Run.



    2. In the Run window, in the
      Open box, type cmd, and then click
      OK.



    3. At the cmd.exe screen, type
      netsh winsock reset catalog, and then press
      .
      The following message appears:

      Successfully reset the Winsock Catalog.
      You must restart
      the machine in order to complete the reset.



    4. Type exit, and then press
      to quit the cmd.exe screen.



    5. Restart the computer.

    For Computers Running Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 and Earlier


    To remove Winsock settings from a computer that is running Windows XP Service
    Pack 1 or from a computer that is running the original release version of
    Windows XP, follow these steps:



    1. Click Start, and then click
      Run.



    2. In the Run window, in the
      Open box, type regedit, and then click
      OK.



    3. In the Registry Editor window,
      click the plus sign (+) that is next to
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to expand the
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry hive.



    4. Click the plus sign to expand the
      SYSTEM subkey, click the plus sign to expand the
      CurrentControlSet subkey, and then click the plus sign to
      expand the Services subkey.



    5. Under the Services subkey, click
      the Winsock subkey.



    6. On the File menu, click
      Export.



    7. In the Export Registry File
      window, in the File name box, type
      winsock.reg, and then click Save.
      The
      Winsock registry subkey is saved in the My Documents
      folder as winsock.reg.



    8. Right-click the Winsock subkey, and then
      click Delete.



    9. In the Confirm Key Delete window,
      click Yes to confirm the removal of the Winsock
      subkey.



    10. Click the Winsock2 subkey.



    11. On the File menu, click
      Export.



    12. In the Export Registry File
      window, in the File name box, type
      winsock2.reg, and then click Save.
      The
      Winsock2 registry subkey is saved in the My Documents
      folder as winsock2.reg.



    13. Right-click the Winsock2 subkey, and then
      click Delete.



    14. In the Confirm Key Delete window,
      click Yes to confirm the removal of the Winsock2

    First it says there on the top that user input required on wireless service that means to say that you need to enter your ssid for your router because the network is secured,what kind of internet connection you cant connect? wired or wireless? to enable the wireless radio, click on start>ALL programs>intel proset wireless icon, then click on enable radio from the drop down menu and click on wifi on on the drop down menu.

If you are looking to download the Audio Driver for the T42 with Windows XP - the link to download that is: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/1ga241ww.exe

If that is not what you are looking for - then you can try to run the Windows Update and see if Microsoft can update the driver for you. To run Windows Update, open Internet Explorer and check under the Tools menu for Windows Update.

OK, sounds like the problem is that the computer cannot get a valid IP address. In fact it sounds like you might have a IP address conflict on your network. Each IP address on a network segment must be unique.

Check if you are using DHCP.

  • Go to
  • Control Panel
  • Network connections
  • Locate the network connection you are using e.g. 'Local area connection' or perhaps 'Wireless connection'
  • Right click on the relevant network connection
  • Select 'Properties'
  • Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
  • Select Properties
Is your machine set to "Obtain an IP address automatically" (DHCP) or "Use the following IP address".
If its "Use the following IP address" then make sure no other machines are also using this IP address. You can try setting to 'automatic' but if you do, make sure that you note all details first, so you can revert back to the settings you currently have if you need to.
if its "Obtain an IP address automatically" then make sure no other machines have been manually set.

With regards to the microsoft update, then your best bet is to only select a small number of updates at a time, until you determine which update(s) is causing the failure. Once you know which update is the problem then you can troubleshoot the specific update.

Hope this helps

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 !!!!

//ieframe.dll/dnserror.htm


There are many possible causes for the error you are getting. try these steps.
  1. Restart your computer unless you've already done so. The ieframe.dll error might be a fluke and a simple restart could clear it up completely.

  2. Install the latest version of Internet Explorer. No matter if you're missing ieframe.dll or if you're receiving a browser error message about it, reinstalling or updating to the latest version of Internet Explorer has resolved many user's issues with ieframe.dll.

  3. Using Visual Basic 6? If so, change the reference for Microsoft Internet Controls from the existing ieframe.dll to shdocvw.ocx. Save your project and then reopen it.

  4. Restart your router, switch, cable/DSL modem and anything else that's used to communicate to the Internet or other computers on your network. There may be an issue in one of these pieces of hardware that a simple restart could solve.

  5. Scan your entire computer for viruses. Sometimes, the ieframe.dll error will show up when your computer is infected with certain kinds of viruses. Use your antivirus software to do a complete system scan for virus infections.

  6. Disable Windows Firewall in Windows XP if you have another firewall installed. Running two firewall applications at the same time can cause problems so if you have a firewall program installed like ZoneAlarm, Norton Personal Firewall, Comodo Firewall, etc., then you should not be running Windows's built-in firewall simultaneously.

    Note: Even if you're positive that the Windows firewall is disabled, check again. Some Microsoft security updates have been known to re-enable the firewall automatically even if you have an existing firewall enabled in another security software program.

  7. Update all non-Microsoft firewall and other security software on your computer. Certain security updates from Microsoft have been known to cause issues with security software from other vendors that those vendors are responsible for resolving. Check their websites for updates or service packs and install any that are available.

    Note: If you're already running a fully updated version of your security software, try uninstalling and then reinstalling the software instead. A clean installation may stop that nagging ieframe.dll error message.

  8. Install any available Windows updates. It is true that some previous updates from Microsoft may actually cause some ieframe.dll errors, but installing more recent updates, especially those to the Windows Update software itself, may help resolve the problem.

  9. Clear the temporary Internet files in Internet Explorer 7. Some ieframe.dll issues may have to do with problems accessing existing temporary Internet files.

  10. Increase the frequency that Internet Explorer 7 checks for new versions of web pages. If the default setting is too infrequent and there are issues with certain pages, you may see ieframe.dll and related errors.

  11. Disable Internet Explorer 7 add-ons one by one. One of your installed add-ons might be causing the ieframe.dll issue. Selectively disabling them will show you which one, if any, is causing problems.

  12. Set Internet Explorer 7 security options back to their default levels. Some programs, even some updates from Microsoft, will sometimes make automatic changes to your Internet Explorer 7 security settings.

    Incorrect or overprotective security settings can sometimes cause ieframe.dll issues. Returning these settings to their default levels may correct your issue.

  13. Move the IE7 Temporary Internet Files Folder to its Default Location in Windows XP. If the Temporary Internet Files folder in Internet Explorer 7 has been moved from its original location, plus both Protected Mode and the Phishing Filter are enabled, the ieframe.dll error will occur.

  14. Disable the Phishing Filter in Internet Explorer 7. This isn't a great long term solution if you don't have another phishing filter installed, but disabling IE7's phishing filter has been known to correct ieframe.dll issues in some situations.

  15. Disable Protected Mode in Internet Explorer 7. The Protected Mode feature in Internet Explorer 7 can, in some very specific situations, be involved in generating an ieframe.dll error message.
