Keep getting error message re: KDE and 'dcopserver'

Although i'm able to access the internet...the error message repeats as follows: "There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE. The message returned by the system could not open the network socket. Please check that the “dcopserver’ program is running."

don't know what KDE is or how to find whether 'dcopserver' program is running.

    i did as instructed by dante777, but an error message came back which said that there was no "sudo chown" in the system, or something to that effect. still have been unable to unearth something called 'docopserver' in the computer innards. thanks for the suggestion however.

    Well.. I tried using a new external modem and I got the exact same message. And now I keep on getting this message all the time; some times it crashes; sometimes it takes forever to react, but finally works. I still couldn't surf with that device... (even though it does work with a different device and that device works with other computers...)

I am not 100% sure, but I remember having a similar problem once. The reason is that root stopped owning a couple of ./kde files, so that a user had not correct access to the files.
Open a terminal and type:
myusername@ubuntu:~$ sudo chown myusername:myusername /home/myusername/.*
Password:

Replace "myusername" with your username. The password asked will be root's password (which might be the same as yours.)

Reinstall


Yes. You need to do a repair, rather than a complete reinstall. You need to have exactly the same version of windows reinstall disk as the OS your repairing.

Media test faiture, check cable error message ,


The error is related to your network interface card. In a lot of laptops this is integrated to the motherboard and can't be switched out at home. You will need to take the laptop in for service to have the card replaced.

Try these steps first. I assume you are using IE 7. If these steps do not work try reinstalling your IE. Let me know if you need anything else. Good Luck.

Method 1: Clear cached data in Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To determine whether a performance issue or an error message is caused by corruption in the temporary Internet files or in other cached information that is used by Internet Explorer 7, you must clear cached data. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
  2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
  3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
  4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons check box, and then click OK.
A progress bar is displayed to indicate that the browsing history is being cleared. After this process is complete, test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly. If issues still occur, try Method 2.
Method 2: Reset security settings for Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If you configure security settings to be too restrictive, you may prevent Internet Explorer 7 from displaying certain Web sites. To determine whether an issue is caused by overly restrictive security settings, revert to default security settings. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
  2. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
  3. Click the Security tab.
  4. Click Reset all zones to default level, and then click OK.
After you do this, test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly. If issues still occur, try Method 3.

Note If this method does not resolve the issue, you can restore Internet Explorer 7 to its previous security level.
Method 3: Run Internet Explorer 7 in "No Add-Ons" mode loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Internet Explorer 7 add-ons, such as ActiveX controls and browser toolbars, are used by some Web sites to provide an enhanced browsing experience. An error may occur if an add-on is damaged or if an add-on conflicts with Internet Explorer 7. To determine whether the error is caused by an add-on, run Internet Explorer 7 in "No Add-Ons" mode. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then type Internet Explorer in the Start Search box.
  2. Click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons). Internet Explorer 7 opens without add-ons, toolbars, or plug-ins.
  3. Test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly. If issues still occur, try Method 4.
If no errors occur, the problem is caused by one of the add-ons that typically load together with Internet Explorer 7. In this case, use one of the following options.
Option 1: Reset Internet Explorer 7 loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Reset Internet Explorer 7 to its default configuration. This step will also disable any add-ons, plug-ins, or toolbars that are installed. Although this solution is quick, it also means that, if you want to use any of those add-ons in the future, they must be reinstalled. To reset Internet Explorer 7 settings, use Method 4.
Option 2: Use the Manage Add-ons tool to determine which add-on is causing the issue loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Use the Manage Add-ons tool in Internet Explorer 7 to individually disable each add-on to determine which add-on is causing errors. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
  2. Click Tools, point to Manage Add-ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add-ons.
  3. In the Show box, select Add-ons that have been used by Internet Explorer to display all add-ons that are installed on the computer.
  4. For each item in this list, select the add-on, and then click Disable under Settings.
  5. When you have disabled all the items in this list, click OK.
  6. Exit and then restart Internet Explorer 7.
  7. If issues do not occur, repeat steps 1 through 3.
  8. Click Enable for a single add-on.
  9. Repeat steps 6 through 8 until you determine which add-on causes errors to occur.

Dell Latitude D610 -- Windows XP Professional


the freeze up problem is due to the limited HHD space or memories. please check your HHD and see how much free sapce you have, and check your memories. the base system came with 256MB, which is too little for anything to work porperly. for you to connected to teh wireless, you should have minimum 1GB of memories. some people may disagree with me, but that is what I found to work better, if you have more than required memories.

How do you repair the error message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL for an Evo n410c?


Hi there
This message usually pops up in the "blue screen" This Stop message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory address to which it did not have permission to access.
This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it quickly, restart your computer, and press F8 and select "Last Known Good Configuration"
this should repair the machine, although in some case the system has to be recovered

Keep us posted and Merry Christmas
