When you say "i can't locate internet" I'm assuming you don't know where the executable icon for internet explorer is, so the following is what you can do to put it back on your desktop or put it back in the start menu.

first of all make sure internet explorer is avaliable/enable/installed in your computer by going to control panel>add remove programs>add remove windows components and check internet explorer if it's uncheck. then try the following if needed:

go to start>my computer>local disk c: (or the system drive letter you have on your system) > program files>Internet explorer and in that folder look for iexplore.exe and right click on it and send it to the desktop as a shortcut or pin it the the start menu.

you can also put it on your start menu by right clicking an empty space on your taskbar (bar wher the start button is .. the blue area), go to properties, go to start menu tab, click customize and put a check mark next to internet and select internet explorer.

My e-machines had windows 7 and became unusable. I had to use my pc and resorted to installing linux on it. I got the recovery discs from e-machines and after I put in the 1st recovery disc, it said...


Hi,
You are getting this error because linux is installed on it.
Windows doesn't go well with linux.
Format your harddrive using any 3rd party formatter tool.
I mean, it should be like a blank hardrive without any files in it.
Then try to use the recovery disc.

I disconnected my son's lap top and we can not connect to the internet on his lap top It's saying on the lap top can not display this page Laura


Try connecting to http://209.235.250.53/

If it works, the laptop is using a bad DNS address. How you fix that depends on the operating system - XP or Vista.

One touch recovery system


See if there is a D: partition on the laptop. If there is, you can find everything there. A service partition has been included with newer systems. You can access your service partition during the startup process
A set of recovery CDs or DVDs can be created in the Rescue and Recovery predesktop area. A CDRW drive or CDRW/DVDRW drive and writable media are required.
When the system first starts, the following message will be displayed on a blank screen:

To Start the Product Recovery program, press F11
This message will stay on the screen for approximately 2 seconds, and it will be there every time the machine is started from a powered off state. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system will enter the Service partition.
Good luck.

My hard drive got damged and has bean replaced with a new one, I cant get operating system to work more than 30 days. I have installed vista using a reboot disk that came with lap top. The lap top worked...


I AM CURENTLY AWITING ANOTHER REBOOT DISK AS THE MANUFACTUERS OF THE LAP TOP SAID IT MIGHT NEAD THE FULL INSTAL OF VISTA HOME BASIC AND NOT JUST THE REBBOT PROGRAM VERSION I GOT WITH THE PC. AS THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE START UP SETINGS THAT CONFIGS THE BIOS TO USE VISTA. ( I DIDNT UNDERSTAND THIS TILL I ACTURLY GOT INTO THE BIOS) THE NEW DISK WILL ASLO INCLUDE A NEW PRODUCT KEY THAT DOES NOT NEAD TO BE CONFIRMD VIA INTERNET TO USE AS IT IS JUST THE BASIC VISTA PROGRAM THAT SHOLD ALOW ME TO INSTAL MY UTILITIS AND DRIVERS TO INSTAL THE MODEMS AND OTHER SYSTEM FILES. WHEN I ORIGANLY GOT THE LAP TOP IN 2007 THE REBOOT &RECOVERY DISKS ONLY HAD THE SET UP PROGRAMS THIS ALOWS YOU TO INSTAL VISTA OPERATING SYSTEM BUT NOT ALL THE PROGRAMS WILL WORK AS YOU NEAD TO DOWNLOAD THE FULL SYSTEM SETINGS. SO JUST TO LET OTHERS KNOW IF YOU GOT A LAP TOP OR PC THAT ONLY HAD A REBOOT DISK TO CHEK THAT IT IS THE FULL VERSION ( NEW VISTA RECOVERY 2008 ) AND NOT THE 2007 ONE

I WIL LET YOU KNOW HOW I DID IT IF THIS WORKS

THANKS FOR THE OFFER

I want to restore my laptop to factory settings. I have a compaq, presario v4000 but it did not come with a system restore cd.


baby,
There is an option to make system restore disk for your Lap.
Goto Start->Program -> HP Recovery -> Create System recovery.
WARRNING: its one time runnign software. So use good quality DVD to make your recovery DVD and keep it safe.
It might take 2-3 DVD so be patient as it will take time.
  • After creating DVD, make copy of all your important documents/file to any where like flash memory/CD or DVD as all the files and softwares will be deleted which you have installed/copied or saved after first boot.
  • Then re-start your lap with the created first recovery DVD.
  • Follow the on screen instructions...

There is also a way to run your recovery from your HDD.
  • Keep pressing F9 after booting your lap till Boot Selection menu appears. Select Recovery and follow the on screen instructions. But before recovery make all backups of your important data.

If any question just..Ask me.

Thanks
Iqbal

Reinstall system


Most computers you buy from vendors come with what is called a "recovery disk" it is a disk that restores the operating system to how it was when it was originally shipped. Before using the recovery disk make sure to backup all important files to another location (to cd/dvd or in this case to an external hard drive, usb drive or other computer). Once all important files and information is backed up use the recovery cd to recover the operating system.

If the recovery cd has been lost or was never shipped, call Dell and ask for their advice. If they are unable to to send a recovery cd for your system or support for that system has been discontinued, proceed to a local PC repair shop and be prepared to pay some $$$ for them to do what I suggested.

Good luck.
