    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: http://www.ciao.co.uk/Compaq_Presario_1685__17130#productdetail

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.

I cannot send or recieve e mail/ a tech set it up for me. he sent a test e mail it came through & then when I tried it , I get error message. I am at a loss.


Using Yahoo open the yahoo mail and create you email account. Sometimes you end up in Outlook Mail in error. To fix that go to Tools at the top of your browser. Open Options, then Programs. Scroll down to "Mailto" then to the right click on the mail program and select Yahoo Mail. I use FireFox but if you use MS Internet Explorer the procedure will be similar.
Now you can access your mail on any computer by using your log in to Yahoo. Your mail is stored on a Yahoo server, not in your computer.

I am not receiving inbox e-mail, but mail goes out. There's an unexplainable block on e-mail that out local server doesn't understand.


Contact your local ISP (Internet Service Provider).
If they have a problem with their mail-server, they will tell you.
If there are no problems, they will help you, their customer, to trouble-shoot the specific E-mail settings for their network.

There are sending some mail about googles winning lootery and Msn/Yahoo Lottery valu of rs.40,200,000 INR by sending MSN/YAHOO LOTTERY INCOPORATION and Google Award Claims Dept some such mail...


This is what we call scams and frauds, just ignore them or if possible delete them, sometimes those mails are attached with spyware or virus. You need not to open them. Just imagine, how can you win without playing or without entering the competition? Never and never, it's not possible, even hardworking people earns through troubles and sweat, so don't ever believe them. Many people fell into this trap, but many have know their intension and have escaped, but still many more are ignorant and can still believe them. Most of those mails will show up on google search, try typing in the Subject line of the mail on google and search, you'll know what others are saying about them.
You can forward your mails to the following websites and emails:
Ripoff Report
Consumer fraud reporting
spam@uce.gov
Internet Crime Complaint Center

So don't waste you time and money for them, rather do your own work and report them to the given sites, services and emails mentioned above. There are still many more where you can place complaints, etc.. etc..

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

AOL has always been problematic since 1991, the best way for you to resolve your issue is to call AOL. I personally don’t understand why people still use AOL when you have DSL or Cable since DSL and Cable are the internet service then you pay on top of that to use AOL? It just seems like a great waste of money and trouble to me, for AOL is nearly impossible to get off your computer once it has been installed.
