    The issue is most likely Windows want to manage your wireless network connections and your software may not be compatible. I would suggest uninstalling the software for the wireless card and configuring it using your computers "Wireless Configuration Utility".

    With my newer Dell, running XP pro, its found in the control panel

How do I fix Pre-BIOS / Loading Screen before windows freeze with my shuttle sh67h3


I would have gone with a descent 600 watt Psu, however the Gpu is low profile, what's it like on onbaord Graphics, if it's the same there could be hardware issues.. Check Sata Cable to Hdd...also start pulling a few sticks of Ram out boot up one stick at a time...also use Speccy at www.piriform.com check the heat these small towers if not vented correctly will get hot!, a better heatsink and extra fan extraction will cure that, expect 35 Degrees for Intel, 45 Degrees plus Amd ish only a vivid guide as all differ slightly maxing out at 60 degrees ish.. hope this helps

Dell optiplex desktop freezes up at boot screen. Says drive 2 not found. Bios setup is correct and boot sequence has been setup correctly. Was working before but now freezes up.


Swap out the ram one stick at a time, bad ram has been known to cause this type of symptom, the other thing to check is the motherboard, check the led light on the board is green, if not and it is yellow or amber indicates motherboard issues.

I purchased a Dell Lattitude D630 on eBay a couple of months back. I am now having a problem with a blue screen comin up and the system freezes up. The service tag and express service code has been...


Dell's web-site has a "automatically detect my system" which will determine the Dell Service Tag, and display it. Or, start your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP. Browse through the various menu items, and the Dell Service Tag will be displayed.

My computer freezes for no apparent reason :(


thanks for the details

something you need to know is that freeze ups (intermittent ones) are hard to diagnose.. and it may require to swap some with known good ones to determine what the problem is

this is what I would start with.

1. if you're new to the computer.. check for viruses and malware in general or better yet do a clean reisntall of the os. (it problably would be faster particularly if you don't have any info on it since you're using it for games) then test your games and see how it behaves... if the problem is fixed.. you may have had a software issue or simply malware or some virus.

2. you did a clean install and it kept freezing up on you (that's when it gets interesting).
you suspect it could be something related with internet... check the network updater:

couple of things you can try:
a. if the network adapter is onboard: check for new drivers then test if it does not work disable the adapter in device manager and test... run some games of the harddisk or the cd/dvd drive and see how it behaves..
b. if the network adapter is a pci card..check for new drivers then test if it does not work uninstall from device manager and uninstall card phisically and test running some games off the hdd or cd/dvd drive, (feel free to try to use your onboard network adapter if avaliable.. don't forget to enable this one if it was disabled on bios) and test

3. if you're a gamer and your old pal (the one that got you the computer was one too) you very likely have a good video card on your system.. check for new drivers then test if it does not work uninstall and then use onboard video adapter and test...

4. you tried 2 and it kept happening... first thing I would do is do some checking on the memory: if you have 2 sticks of memory.. run the computer with one memory stick at a time and test (one memory stick at a time)

if it only has 1 memory stick.. get a new memory stick and test the system with the new memory stick.

5. check your hard drive (it may be getting old)... download a program called speed fan and check the startus of your hdd and the the online comparison (if it doesn't freeze up on you).

6. if you got upto here... things are not looking good.. you may have a problem with the motherboard or even your cpu... I would do some monitoring with task manager... check and see if by creating some stress on your cpu usage (open, close, run programs).. you can duplicate the freeze up).. at this time you may to think on replacing either one of those components.. been more likely your motherboard... but only way to find out would be swaping components for know good components..

have fun and let me know how it turns out.

the MS pro may need an adapter if it's the mini kind. then that will plug into that slot. it still won't fit the same way as the SD card, so insert it carefully. there should be an indented area for the MSP card to insert.

Just got an ACER Aspire AS5720Z notebook. It has a 5-in-1 card reader. I have a memory Stick Pro Duo card that is extremely small. The manual says the card reader will read it. There is NO eject button...


Hi, the memory Stick Pro Duo card is (micro), half size as you have noticed you need to buy an SD adapter card. You put your Pro Duo card into the SD card & than put it into your card reader.
Once you see the SD adapter card on the web site you'll understand. You can buy this at a local BestBuy. Most web sites sell the adapter as a combo, you'll get a micro card & adapter.
Click the link below.

Look at SanDisk 2GB Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo w/Adapter
& you will understand.

Have more questions? Just ask.
Good Luck & Have a Great Day!
