    I didn't. I am assuming that I might have a driver problem. The computer boots fine. I cannot access the internet.

    Thanks

    I am also having a problem with the screen resolution. I do not have the installation software for the monitor. I was hoping to get it on the internet.

Try booting to Safe Mode and using System Restore to go back to a time before your issue started. That might at least get you on the Internet to download some drivers. Good luck and post back with how it goes.

I lost my emails since I upgraded from windoows xp to windows 7


Features available through Yahoo! Mail include unlimited storage, the ability to view photos and videos from your inbox and the ability to send 50 files or 100MB worth of attachments in a single email.

You can also access Yahoo!'s instant messaging software from your inbox and check email on your mobile phone and other Internet-enabled devices.

Before signing up for Yahoo! mail, check its compatibility with your version of Internet Explorer.Standard Yahoo! Mail


Yahoo! Mail's standard interface works with Internet Explorer 7 and higher. However, Internet Explorer 7 users may be unable to use the reply bar, slideshows or Yahoo! Messenger from their inbox.

To access these features, use at least Internet Explorer 9. All Internet Explorer users must have Windows 7, XP or Vista to use the standard form of Yahoo! mail. Mac operating systems using Internet Explorer are not supported by the current version of Yahoo! Mail.
Older Option


Users who want to use Yahoo! Mail Classic will find it compatible with Internet Explorer 6, as well as newer versions of the browser.

Yahoo! announced to customers in July 2011 that it would soon stop supporting Internet Explorer 6. Yahoo! Mail Classic works with Windows 2000, XP and Vista, as well as Windows 7.

Yahoo! Mail Classic lacks many of the upgrades found in the current version of the email program.

Upgrades
While Yahoo! Mail supports older versions of Internet Explorer, the company recommends that users upgrade to the most current version.

Yahoo! says using the newest browser software provides more speed and added protection against viruses and software.
Enabling ActiveX

If you plan to use the current version of Yahoo! Mail on a Windows machine, you'll want to enable your computer's ActiveX controls so you can access all the features of the email program.

To do this, go to the "Tools" menu or the gear symbol in Internet Explorer, then select "Internet Options" and "Security."

Click on "Internet," then "Custom Level."
Scroll down to "Run ActiveX Controls and Plugins" and "Script ActiveX Controls Marked Safe for Scripting." Enable each of these options and save your settings.

Reboot Internet Explorer.

I've had my pc rebooted,and when i want to go on a specific site,i can't open internet explorer.how do i reinstal internet explorer?


dear friend if you are using internet explorer just give a try to mozilla firefox once.
and if you still need internet explorer i think you might be using windows XP.
Click Start > Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > then click on Add remove windows components > search for "Internet Explorer" it will have a tick mark in front of it. now "Untick" (unselect) it and press Next this will uninstall your internet explorer from your windows. now reboot your Computer.

now you have to install the internet explorer for that you have to do the process again

Click Start > Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > then click on Add remove windows components > search for "Internet Explorer" it will have a no tick mark in front of it. now "Tick" (select) it and press Next this will install your internet explorer to your windows. now reboot your Computer.

now your internet explorer will work as a new one but with older bookmarks and settings.
try using Firefox once
and dont forget to rate my suggestion

Thanks

How to share internet connection on Windows Vista OS. I want to share internet connection between two Laptops using Windows Vista Operating system and the other using Windows XP. The Host computer is...


All right let's call your Vista computer A and your Xp computer B. First you have to bring the two computers into LAN. If you already did this, please skip the next eight steps.

Step 1: In Vista, before doing this you should enable Sharing and Discovery. You can do that by going to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center. Under the section ‘Sharing and Discovery, enable Network discovery, File Sharing, Public folder sharing and others if you want to. (See picture below)

Step 2: If your LAN card that is connecting to another computer is installed, it will be shown under Control Panel -> Network Connections.

Step 3: Right click that local area connection and click properties.

Step 4: Under the tab ‘Networking’, click the properties Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).

Step 5: Click the radio button to ‘Use the following IP’ and give an IP address (For example, IP address: 192.168.0.1 and Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0)

Step 6: Don’t give any other information, Click Ok and close everything.

Step 7: In computer B, which is the XP, make sure you enable the LAN card which is used to connect to computer ‘A’. Here you need not give any IP information as Computer ‘A’ will assign an IP address dynamically. If it’s not working make sure there are no IP assigned and change the properties to ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’.

Step 8: Test the connection by pinging. (You can do this by typing ping 192.168.0.1 or whichever is Compter ‘A’s IP in the comand prompt)

NOW your computers are connected. Now to share the internet:

Right click LAN card which is connected to Internet under Control Panel -> Network Connections and click ‘Sharing’ tab and enable both the options to share Internet. (Note: Unless there is another enabled LAN setting you will not be able to see the shared tab under properties)

Click Ok and close. This option is given by the Windows OS known as ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

Now you can use Internet from both Computer A and Computer B from a single connection.

So this is the setup you need on the Host computer as you requested, if you turn out to need help witht he XP one too, let me know:)

EXPLORER WON'T RESPOND


i am sorry it is late i kind of read over the fact that your modem works and dowloaded xp sp3.
if your internet explorer doesnt go to any webpage check the following settings in internet explorer :
tools>internet options>connections
now if you work on a dial up modem your connection should be in there.
if its not just add one and follow the steps accordingly.

if your on a Local Area Network (LAN) this should be empty

also go to : Lan settings
in the same tab
and make sure no proxy info is entered that should all be off and empty.
you can click : Automatically detect settings
to on.
