It may not have an ethernet card in the computer. If it is an older model it may not have come with one. It is only the past few years that 80% actually come with, or include on the motherboard and etherner card. You can buy one at a local computer store. You are looking for a PCI ethernet card. First check if you have an available slot for the card, on your motherboard. You should be able to google some photo's to show you what to look for.

IBM APTIVA MANNEL


Go to www.google.com and type: "Ibm Aptiva Support or Lenovo Support" in the search (without the quotes). Go to their drivers and download site, enter your computer's model and operating system. Look for Manuals or Documents on the site to download.

I have an old ibm aptiva with usb port nad trying ot transfer files to external hard drive, however it doesnt recognize the harddrive, what can i do?


Depending on the external drive (try it in another computer first) the case may be bad. You can purchase an IDE cable at your local computer store, take the hard drive out of the case, plug it in directly, and voila!

I Need a power supply cord and a keyboard and mouse


If it's a desktop 98% of them all use the same power plug. Just call any local computer repair shop and they'll sell you one for hopefully no more than $5.

Need help transfering data from IBM Aptiva to Dell computer


Sounds like the older computer is a 98 machine - Data Traveler does not have 98 drivers due to its size. Your best bet is to find a smaller flash drive that is 98 compatible - or depending on the size of the data you could e-mail it to yourself.

Ok, I'm trying to help my dad, he's got an IBM aptiva 2174 model 572 s/n am71xp2. He's in AZ and I'm in CT. He said he got it to turn on the other day, used it, then shut it off and now it wont' turn on....


the cords etc only fit one way in one place... exploded parts view on computer equipment ? forget it, how do you think us technical guys survive ? :) seriously though, try checking the power delivery from the power cord before it plugs into the transformer, then check if the transformer is delivering power... voltage meter and common sense not to electrocute yourself ( or your dad in this case ) would be wise. further remove the battery and see if it works with the mains plugged in without a battery ( faulty battery perhaps )

Its more than likely the transformer though and these can be purchased at reasonable proces either at a dedicated IBM aftermarket parts supplier, IBM themselves or trawl the net...


good luck

I am trying to hook up a belkin router to a desk top, gateway. with no success been on the phone with belkin for 4 hours, unsuccessful


i hope your not talking about the wireless router.....

unplug your computer from the modem, and link the modem's Ethernet port to your router's WAN port (this is important). Once you have that in place (and you may see a WAN status light come on), plug your computer into one of the other Ethernet ports using another Ethernet cable and see if you can get a connection........

IBM Aptiva and verizon DSL


OK Win98 doesn't play well with USB, when Win98 came out USB was very new, and NOT supported properly untill Win98SE... and even then it is a pain and real problematical. I would suggest you get a Ethernet connected DSL modem.. Else ya gonna have no end of problems regardless of what ya do including "Flashing" I think that model PC has Ethernet built in? otherwise get a PCI Ethernet Card and use that instead of USB.. ya be good to go. I would also upgrade if possible to Win98SE PLUS install ALL Updates there are still Win98 suport on the net, simply Google for it.. good Luck.

Monitor won't come on


When you say the pc is working fine, it's hard to tell if there is no visual from the monitor. Are you getting the 2 usual spaced beeps when your pc boots up, is your keyboard ps2(normal pin type plug or USB)check you have keyboard and mouse in their correct connectors (mouse-green plug, keyboard-purple plug) I'ts more than likely had a bit of banging about in storage and especially if it's been in a cool area, then placed in your house, there may well be condensation points inside which may take a few days to dry out. Try your monitor in a friends pc to eliminate that first.
