    Sounds like it might be time for a new motherboard. But we need more info before we can determine this. Does the video act wierd or what do you mean by "have had trouble for a long while"?

    Please tell me a little more about your setup: What kind of machine is it? Is it a usb or ps/2 mouse? Are you using dial-up or broadband? Internet Explorer or other? Windows version?

Compaq Presario 1685 Laptop.

Needs memory upgrade in order to support Win98 if at original 64MB RAM. WindowsXP is not an option. Best solution would be LINUX with KDE Desktop (or Gnome) as there is Dialup and Ethernet support, plus LINUX is designed to run on minimal type systems like this laptop. Full product detail located at:

Advised that any Windows98 books, should be available through larger public libraries (and even some smaller local branches) and remember that there's always book exchanges. Also, check in bookstores for copies of Windows98 For Dummies.

Of course, the other solution is to send the laptop to my shop in Michigan w/ round trip postage/shipping charges and over phone we can discuss whether or not Win98 is answer or shall we move to Linus. You can call 906-495-1707 to make shipping arrangements.

My mail is not connecting to the Server. My Email is in trouble, also. Please give me any help you can.

Sounds like your server settings have changed...Click Options on the mail menu in your mail program (eg outlook), click the Server tab, and then click Advanced Settings. Change the Outgoing mail (SMTP) Server and Incoming mail (POP3) Server settings as needed, click OK, and then click OK again. Close and restart Internet. Your mail server settings must be correct otherwise no mail will come through - you will have to find that info as its relevant to your internet ISP (Internet Service Provider)

I am trying to add my email program to the Canon system which says "NONE (attach manually) or add to what do I (computer illiterate) do

Windows 7 is very close to XP & with practice works a lot better. If you have installed your Printer on computer & you see something to print in your e-mail do this. Hi lite (blue) with your mouse (left click at the beginning & drag down to where you want to printed) In Internet Explorer or Firfox go to file - print (check selection) then print. That should do it. depending on your e-mail there should also be a print some where on your e-mail.(sometimes works also)

I recently upgraded to yahoo7 mail and it doesn't seem to have upgraded properly I can't compose, forward or reply to mail. I also can't change my online status for chat

There is nothing wrong with your Yahoo 7 Mail because there are already literally tens of thousands of people are using it that includes me. However there can be some problem with your browser, Your computer may have a virus or you internet is not working with proper bandwidth. In any case the problem is with your local system.

Since upgrading yahoo 7 mail I have not been able to send emails as the box won't open and even when I try to read new mail or get my contact list up it doesn't seem to happen

New version of Yahoo has many issues at this time. They hope to have it fixed soon. In the meantime, try switching from one Yahoo version to another. Or shift to the Yahoo Mail Classic version (the old interface) which loads faster and works on all web browsers.
You also want to check yahoo mail using a different web browser program (Mozilla, Chrome). Or check your internet connection speed and firewall access limitations.

To enter yahoo mail, it become a blank page

Most likely it is a problem with your internet provider as i just viewed my yahoo mail. I would suggest refreshing the page. If that doesn't work, quit your internet provider and start it up again. If that doesn't work than i would restart your computer.

I was checking e-mail when mouse stopped working. I replaced the mouse and keyboard batteries. At that point the return key and up and down arrows were working. I logged off the computer and the next day...

Sometimes, after replacing batteries, mouse and keyboard needs to be re-connected. Press and hold the "connect" button on Keyboard for some time and it will be connected.
