Try doing a Winsock fix. It's a free download at this link http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Network-Tweak/WinSockFix.shtml This will replace the Winsock and then you will have to restart you pc. And for the CD-Rom, Yes it is normal for the CD tray not to come all the way out as it does on desktops. When you push the button it just pops out then you pull it the rest of the way out. Hope this helps.

Hi, When you say reset I will assume you want to reset to factory defaults? Meaning like as when you first bought it. There are a number of ways to do this. If you have the original installation and driver disks that came with the laptop you would use those to reinstall the operating system and other software. On some laptop models they partition a portion of the hard drive to be a recovery partition which can be used to restore the laptop to its original state. To do this, you would want to look for a program that is installed on the computer that will launch this recovery action. It may be titled "Toshiba Recovery Program" or something similar. If the laptop is under warranty support you can contact Toshiba to have them walk you through this process, being an additional option.

Check LAN IP configuration properly, also check Gateway and DNS configuration. Try to Ping your local host. Start>Run>Cmd enter ipconfig/all and check your ip configuration. Also check your server ip configuration.
Just remember to take your time and don't get nervous working on the computer. Please report back to the thread with the results of your work.
Click on Start and type CMD. Open CMD and type ipconfig. Check out the IP address V4 for the Local area ethernet adapter or wireless area adpater depending on wireless or wired connection. Any ip address other than of the class 169.254.x.x shoud be considered good. If you have an IP address is any other number other than the above you have a good IP address. to test the internet connectivity type PING www.google.com. If the results are Packets sent 4 Recieved 4 Lost 0 then the issue could be due to Internet Explorer bing corrupt or a firewall blocking the internet access. Power off the computer. Power on the system and as soon as you see the Dell logo please tap the F8 button 3 - 4 times. You'll get to teh Advanced Windows boot option screen. Select safe mode with networking and see if the internet works in the safe mode. If yes then it could be the firewall. Uninstall you antivirus and check.
1. You can disconnect the Rj45 cable from the PC & connect
it directly to your notebook's Rj45 port. You should have access to the internet if a minute or two.
2. if you want access to both, Pc & notebook you'll need a wireless router. Like the link below. Click it. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01
You can find these types of wireless routers at places like Wallmart & Best Buy. They come in even smaller packages.
With the software that is included you'll be connected to the internet in no time. Linksys also provides security so someone near to your home can not tap your internet service & get a free ride. Linksys provides setup assistance from day one.
Hope this helps you Linda!
personally i would go for a usb wireless adapter as many people have driver problems with the pcmcia slot and are unable to get it to recognise the card, whereas usb is much simpler to use.
All the usb type adapters are much the same they dont have to be the same make as your router, but buy the same transfer speed type, for example if you have a 108MBPS router buy the compatible 108 MBPS adapter as a 54MBPS adapter will reduce the transfer speed capabilty, not to be confused with your connection speed.
