Sounds like you have virus problems --

it will take some doing to clean it up and get it going again but i will walk you though it.

first i need to know--
are you running xp or vista?
what antivirus software have you been using and is it up to date and functioning?
when you say you cant restart without the disk, have you tried booting to safemode from your bios?
what kind of connection are you using, cable, dsl?
can you browse the internet when you plug directly to your modem?

please let me know

    ok well first when you restart the computer does it go to the logon screen and let you in

    are you running xp or vista?




  • Brian Ebeling Dec 26, 2008

    ok. from your desktop go to---
    Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager
    Do you see any yellow signs with exclamation points in them?
    If so what are the labels they are next to?

    If not Click on the Network Adapters Header and tell me what the labels are under that heading.
    also click on the labels one at a time and make sure Device Status Window it says Working Properly and under device usage it says Use this Device (enable)
    if yes in both then exit out of device manager and give me the info i requested.

  • Brian Ebeling Dec 26, 2008

    well that means you have several problems with your drivers, which is why you have no sound. you are gonna have to download all your drivers and install them. you will have to connect to your modem directly with an ethernet cable. wont take to long to download and install. but you WILL have to check for viruses and malware when your done. i can walk you through that

    In the device manager, under Network Adapters do all the entries have exclamation marks next to them? wondering about the LAN adapter, so we can get you online to download your drivers


  • Brian Ebeling Dec 26, 2008

    ok good that means you should be able to connect directly to your modem. just plug an ethernet cable between your laptop and the modem and windows should automatically recognize the connection down in the tray. open your browser and see if you can go to GOOGLE.COM


    if not go to --
    Start -> Control Panel -> Network Connections -> Local Area Connection and tell me what you see.


  • Brian Ebeling Dec 26, 2008

    you have an XP install disk? if so do you have the product key for it?

  • Brian Ebeling Dec 26, 2008

    well you apparently have a lot of problems so i would like to use the **** to repair your system but you need the key.

    or if you can get a cable to hook up directly to your modem we can fix it with downloads.

    or if you can give me the make, model etc of your laptop. i can give you the link to download a driver for the wireless adapter and you can maybe download it from someone elses computer and install it to yours.



  • Brian Ebeling Dec 26, 2008

    ok, go here to this link and download a little program that will identify what network adapter you have so we can get you there correct driver---

    This link can be a little slow but it should start the download automatically, if it doesn't start click on the little button at the top. DO NOT push the big download button under "RECCOMENDED DOWNLOAD" in the center of the screen.

    when it down loads you need to UNZIP the contents into a folder on your desktop

    when that's done click on the aida32.exe file, it might take a minute to open. it is scanning your system.
    when it opens, click on NETWORK and then WINDOWS NETWORK.
    at the top of the screen there should be two adapters listed, one for LAN and one for Wireless.
    Click on the Wireless adapter and tell me it's name.
    Towards the bottom of the screen, if you scroll down, there may be an internet address, please tell me that as well.

    ***The AIDA32 Program is fairly small so it is easy to transfer from one computer to another if you have a usb drive or key or you can burn it to a CD and transfer it that way.

    really need to get your computer hooked up to your modem though.

    let me know :)

Emachine won't connect to the internet. Ethernet cable, router and modem all work just fine. problem is with computer. Check network adapters in device manager and no problem noted there. Why won't it...


first try to check if your wireless can actually detect a network, if it can try to remove ALLthe network that you have on your wireless network and try to add your network again, if still doest work try to uninstall and re install your wireless driver, if it still doesnt work try to restart your router, if still doesnt work try to do system restore to the point where your wireless was workin fine, lastly if still doesnt work try to contact your ISP for some configuration.

Toshiba Equium Laptop keyboard not operating correctly


There has been a lot of talk around this computer lately about the same problem you are having. It has something to do with the plug that plugs into the mother board it self.

I have a toshiba laptop and my 5.1 speakers would not work


The easiest thing to do, i think would be to find out what sound card you have, then google the sound card info and the OS you have and there's bound to be a driver on the net somewhere, most likely on www.toshiba.co.uk
If you tell me what laptop you have i could have a go at finding it for you =)

Hallo , I have a Toshiba Satellite L300D-10Q and a Netgear wireless router from Virgin 54 Mbps do i need a card to go into the laptop to get on to the inter net thank you.


Compliancy : Wi-Fi®
Network Support : 802.11b/g
Wireless Technology : Wireless LAN

That is the internal wireless so no you dont you need any thing to set up a wireless connection
You need to set up your wireless network

Or you should have got an ethernet cable with the router usually small yellow, blue or blue. plug this cable into one of the ports on the back of your router then the other end of cable to the ethernet port on side (i think) of laptop anc conect phone line from main box to router. You dont need no software just switch on router wait a couple of minutes till all lights on router turn green and click on your internet explorer done!

My toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 boots up normally and then before it freezes I hear a static sound coming from the speakers and then computer does nothing at all


the problem seems to be related to static shock affecting toshiba mousepads, speaker grills, and USB ports. It's a common problem, and it is affecting my Toshiba laptop too. Here's an article I came across trying to diagnose the frequent freeze-ups:

My toshiba computer does not work with my wireless internet


what brand of wireless modem you have, what os are you using?did you switch on the wireless in your laptop? sometimes we overlook the most simple things, it happens to me..
ok, you have to configure your laptop to connect to your wireless modem, how? just connect first your laptop with wire to the wireless modem, does it work? if it does work you can take the default gateway ip add from your pc by typing IPCONFIG on the command prompt , then type it in your internet explorer address bar.

example default gateway..... 192.168.1.254

and supply the username and password, you can now configure your wireless connection wep/wpa configuration.
