Javascript is enabled but it keeps telling me I need to enable it


I've been trying to view videos or click on things that require javacript in both IE and Firefox and it keeps saying the same thing in both: I need to enable Javascript and download the latest flash player. I've checked on both of my browsers and javascript is enabled on both, and have downloaded the newest form of Flash player and it still keeps saying this. I've cleared my internet files and I'm out of ideas.

What's up?
i tried to view a video in you tube and it told me that my javascript isnt on or im using and old version of adobe flash player. i checked javascipt and it is on and then i downloaded the latest version of adobe flash player but it still wont let me view videos... please help...

Cant find network system icon as turned off


Try these steps.
Open RUN (go to start--> run) then type NCPA.CPL, this will open the available network connections on your PC. Now check whether network driver is Enable or Disable. If its Disable you need to Enable. Right Click on that icon and select Enable.
If that doesn't work try the next step. Right Click on the Taskbar and select Properties. Now you can able to view the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties. On the Taskbar Tab Click on Customize. There you can able to view your current items. Select your network there and select the option Always Show from the drop down list.

Please let me know about the status.

I can't login to facebook. Your help will be greatly appreciate. I click on facebook login and nothing happens.

I just found out who to contact: email or tech@facebook com

Can't send emails, accept friend requests, change my status, view friends' status or play scrabulous
Check to see if your JavaScript is running (Browser Help menu can show you how pretty easy). If it isn't, you need to enable JavaScript. Check your Facebook log in page and see if you have a message there that says JavaScript isn't running. If JavaScript IS running but Facebook says it isn't running, try deleting your Temporary Internet files. Close and reopen your browser and log into Facebook again. This is what worked for me

I cant play any videos on you tube

hi friend,
If you're receiving this error message and unable to play videos,
here's what I recommend to get you back on track and able to watch
videos successfully again. Please follow the steps listed below...
1. uninstall the version of Adobe Flash that you currently have
running on your computer. You can uninstall Flash here:
2. Once you've un installed Flash, then go to the Adobe site and
download the most recent version of the Flash player:
3. At this point, completely exit your browser (don't just close the
window, exit the browser completely).
4. Only now, once you've exited your browser, can you install the new
version of the Flash player you just downloaded. Install the Flash
5. Finally, open your browser again. Go to You Tube and try playing a
video-- the video should now play!
6. If the video *still* doesn't play, make sure you have java script
enabled (turned on) in your browser.
If you're not sure how to do this, do a Google search for your browser
and then "enable JavaScript". You should easily find instructions on
how to enable java script.
Here are a couple of examples for firefox, Internet Explorer, and
Opera users:

Websites use different media player formats. If youtube is asking you to install the plugin do so. is a trusted site and will not hurt your pc.

The wireless wan in my aspire 6930 no longer function, what can i do to fix it?

Make sure the drivers for the wireless card are installed and also that the wireless switch is turned on.

Those are the two main things to check, are you able to look for networks or is the wireless completely unavailable?

If its completely unavailable it might be disabled or the drivers are missing. to check this, right click on your my computer or computer, which you will find from either your desktop or from start menu.

Select Manage.

On the computer management window on the left side click on device manager, look for any devices with a RED X or a yellow ? mark.

Also look under the network adapters, what do you see there?
