Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Yahoo messenger i have a laptop here which i bought from local shop recently. The laptop name is jpro. It has a windows ce operating systems and 7" lcd screen. Mainly it is used only for web browsing and chatting and some office application (e.g. word and excel). By default, it is loaded with msn messenger and skype. I thought i could used the yahoo messenger as my tool to chat my friends wayback to my country (we used mainly YM there), but unfortunately i couldn't install any driver in google to sort out this small problem. I was thinking if there is skype by default there is a chance that i could install also the YM because skype is recently introduce compare to YM. I hope that somebody out there can help me to solve this or give me a link to some other site to get the right driver.

    Hi Drlalitv,

    Basically i already went to that site but the problem is how am i going to install that driver to my laptop. I'm not using mobile phone i'm using a laptop. I let you think that i'm a fool but what should i do (this is referring to the first two options that you given to me and the third option i havn't try). I'm sorry also for rating this one as inappropriate because it did not solve my problem and i can't classify this one as the second choice (i'm thinking that you will feel that i'm not interested anymore).Please if there is another solution kindly send it to me. Regards and thank you very much for spending time to answer my querry

    the third option works again on the windows ce ce is also known as pocket pc,windows mobile...
    also the fact that ur skype and msn messenger works means that u will be able to use my and msn messngrt are both the windows mobile version on ur system..

    Gateway md2419u needs recovery disk for windows 7

    I remember seeing your other post about this same request for help and you mentioned that Gateway wanted $149 to help you out.

    Take the computer to a local repair shop if you need the operating system reinstalled. This should not cost more than $60 to install the same version of windows that was on your computer. Just make sure that the Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker on the bottom of the laptop is legible so that they can know which operating system you had and what the key code (a series of five digits and letters) is.

    You may not be able to. Windows CE is a very small Windows operating system. That is, there are just basic components used to run your laptop.

    From the website PDF manual:
    To install and run Nokia PC Suite:

    At least 300 MB of free disk space
    - One of the following operating systems:
    - Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit editions
    - Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit editions (Service Pack 1)
    - Windows XP Professional x64 edition (Service Pack 2)
    - Windows XP (Professional or Home Edition) (Service Pack 2 or later)
    - Administrator rights to the PC to install software on it
    Note: To transfer music between your phone and a PC using USB cable connection in the Media Transfer mode, you need to have Windows Media Player 10 (or newer) installed on your PC. Windows Media Player includes an MTP driver, which is required for transferring music in the Media Transfer mode.

    I just recently received the sylvania 7 inch netbook as a gift. It comes with windows ce,im not familiar with using this hard wear and for some reason i cant connect to the internet via wifi what can i do?

    Windows CE or windows embedded compact is an operating system for minimalistic computers and have minimal storage. My friend had also that notebook but she just browse the features of it and later on she learned how to use it. Windows CE is not a complicated software it's a simple program and easy to learn. Good Day!

    I have recently bought an EPC netbook, internet problems

    3 mobile are correct. You cannot use the USB modem dongle that 3 supply to access the internet. That dongle requires application software to allow internet programs to access the port and so access the modem in the dongle. Windows CE does not allow this access. Find out which modem chip is in the dongle and google the name of the chip, this should lead you to a driver which you can use through CE although you may have to reconfigure the 3 dongle..
