Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M140 Notebook

2 Answers

Can't see all the interactive web buttons on a Dell XPs M140

I can not see all the interactive buttons on certain websites such as comcast.net. As an example, I am unable to see the comcast email sign in button, and after entering comcast emails, many of the interative buttons in email are missing. The pointer will indicate where the button is by transitioning to the pointing hand and finger. This issue occurs on a few other websites as well.

I have upgraded all software components, called comcast and reconfigured several options, but with no resolution to the problem.

Any suggestions? I have a 3 yr old Dell XPS M140

Thank you!

    Possibly important- I use the windows media edition.

    Try downloading Firefox 3 athttp://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/.
    Firefox is superior to Internet Explorer in many ways- give it a try.

    Try clearing IE's cache by pressing alt> delete browsing history> and then deleting the temporary files.

    What browser are you using? Make sure that you are running the latest version of it.

I think that your display settings have gotten out of whack. Right click on your desktop, select properties, click the settings tab, and set the resolution to the maximum that your monitor can handle, and the color quality to the highest (32 bit). I mostly suspect the quality has gotten knocked down to 8-bit, which will highly compromise the detail, especially buttons. If the settings refuse to change, use the advanced settings to correct the settings for your video card and/or the monitor. and try again.

Need drivers to run windows 98se on dell xps m140


Microsoft (and Dell) stopped supporting Windows 98 a few years ago -- it lasted for over TEN years! So, it is *NOT* likely that you will find drivers for any computer that was "designed for Windows 2000" or "designed for Windows XP" or "designed for Vista".

So, in general, it is a _bad_ idea to connect any computer running Windows 98 to the Internet -- Microsoft has issued many "security-fixes" in the 4 years after they stopped supporting Windows 98 and Windows ME.

Dell XPS M140 laptop shuts off after powering on


Most laptops that I have worked on that power off that quickly turned out to be an overheating problem. Is the cooling fan running for the brief period that you can hear the hard drive before it powers off ? If the fan is running another potential resolution might be to remove the processor and apply new thermal paste.
