Window 2000 Compaq Laptop Evo N800c
This is a second computer which I have been trying to connect to Broadband, using AOL disc. The disc starts for initial introduction and Then I get the box which states ''Program Error, SETUP2 EXE has generated errors and will be closed by windows''. You will need to restart the program.
This only repeats the problems. I don't know how to solve the problem.
Your advice would be appreciated please.
Thanks,

Network sharing center won't stay open


just been fixing a window vista laptop with problems

Microsoft stopped supporting windows vista years ago
no updates or upgrades
you are at base service pack one
and computer should have been updated to service pack 3 years ago
from service pack 3 a windows 10 upgrade is possible

try an ethernet or usb wifi connection .
.see if the computer will run the way you want it

any windows vista computer is a x32 bit system
with upgrades can run x64
x86 is the current

if you are running anything higher than 32 or x64 software the computer will be slow sometimes freeze or shut down

vista came out same time as and dial up internet
and early broad band

vista can run office 95 but windows 2000 is stable

Machine boots and stops at compaq and then black srceen


Old computers can be cured with old tricks... No that doesn't sound right. You probably set your resolution so high that your monitor does not register.
A solution includes pressing F8 on boot until you hear a beep (That means, "I got it, stop pushing" and select Enable VGA Mode. This will enable basic video driver reset to 640x480; because your computer is so old, you should stick with 1024x768 as your highest resolution for a 15 inch CRT or LCD. Always check the manual of the monitor for what resolutions it supports. Your PC cannot even accept another monitor. Specs seem antiquated. Please invest in a new PC soon.

My compaq presario recovery cd ask for A:>>what is


Desktop or Laptop ????....
Unfortunately, it is likely that your computer will encounter some form of system error, malware function or hard-drive crash that causes the operating system to become unstable.
To help computer users resolve these issues, HP includes the HP Recovery Manager in each Compaq Presario.
Use the Recovery Manager to recover your system without the need for any additional software CDs, technical support or repair service.
The recovery process should only be used as a last step in troubleshooting your computer, as all personal data files will be erased during the recovery.

Close any programs running on your computer and remove any unnecessary hardware devices that are connected to the computer.
Restart the computer. Press the "F11" key once your computer begins to start up again and before the Windows logo appears.
The HP Recovery Manager will automatically launch.
Click the "System Recovery" option and click "Next." Select "No" in the Microsoft restore window that opens and click "Next."
Select the "Backup Your Files First" option and connect an external hard drive or insert a blank DVD or CD to store the backup files.
Follow the instructions in the wizard to select the files you want to save.
Click "Next" to begin the restore process.
The Recovery Manager will reformat the hard drives and recover the system to a functional operating condition.

My Acer Aspire 2920 has a cracked screen so am trying to use it with an E-Machines EM-150 TFT but this only works if run in safe mode and the Fn-F5 toggle does not work at all. Trying to run windows...


Alright, When you connect a second screen, it will by default expand the screen rather than duplicating it. You can change this though.
I'm going to assume that you're using windows 7. If not, other versions of windows are nearly the same but if you need more details I can still help you our.
Move your cursor to your second screen and right click on your desktop, then click Screen resolution. A window should pop up, hopefully on your second screen. If it popped on your laptop's screen you can use this little trick: Press and hold the windows flag key + press the arrow to the right key a few times while still holding the windows key. Basically Windows key + right arrow key. Doing this a few times will move the window to the new screen.
When the window is visible you can see the screens, set the second screen as your standard screen by clicking the little marker.
Also set it to duplicate screen instead of expand screen. Press ok and it should work ^^

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!!

I cannot log in on my Compaq Evo N400c, I was very


Did you check whether the Caps Lock and the Keypad key is released? If the keypad key is enabled by using maybe the Fn key and one of the F key, some of your keys on your keyboard will be defined as to enter the little alternative characters on them. When it is enabled, you may be able to see a little light on your keyboard under an icon look like a keypad. Sometimes some keys may get stuck or not working so your password is changed when it is typed in. So you can clear the bottom of the keyboard a little bit by maybe put it up side down and maybe shake it a little bit (when turned off) or press those keys down and feel whether it is touching the bottom. When you press one key down you can observe the keys around and see whether something is stucked beneath them. You can use a little air blower or something like a toothpicker to clear stuff under the keys. If you can connect another keyboard to your laptop, you can try that too.
I heard about some program may change the key code of the keyboard so you actually may need to use other keys to enter that character. I hope that is not the case.
If nothing found with the keyboard, you can try to log in with the administrator's account which was created when you install your Windows 2000 and reset the password of the user account you are using. Steps are described in the following document.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/258289

You may also boot with your recovery CD and see whether you can get through the login stuff or reinstall the Operating System. As long as you don't repartition or format your data partition your data should be there still.
