How to get online

I now own my 1st laptop and I was wondering what do I need in order to go online if I take it, say, to the park or someplace like that? Do I need some kind of a card, or something?

Thanks

You need some kind of wireless internet card that can pick up signal from anywhere, unless there is a wireless internet connection nearby that you can pick up.

A few things can be happening:

1. You have a DVD but only a CD Drive
2. The DVD is no good
3. Your drive is not working

You can also make a bootable flash drive to accomplish this:

Sounds like you are trying to boot from a lan or someplace other than your hard drive. Turn the computer off then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to reboot to restart the process. Select the Hard Drive as your boot source and then see if it boots up all the way. If it does, you will have to do this each time you start the computer unless you make a permanent change to the boot order or boot sequence.

To make the change permanent, turn the computer off and restart it. Look at the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to restart. Once you get into the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence Tab or Settings and go change the boot sequence or Boot Order. Make the cd drive 1st, and the hard drive 2nd. This is the normal boot order or boot sequence. Just make sure when you boot the computer you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or you'll get an error because the system will try to boot from the cd/dvd drive 1st.

Sounds like you are trying to boot from a lan or someplace other than the hard drive.

Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to boot again to restart.

Select the hard drive as the boot device and let it boot up. If it works, then you will have to do this each time you boot because it only works for the current boot cycle. You can avoid doing this by making it a permanent change in the Bios or System Setup.

To make the change permanent turn off the computer and turn it back on, then watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to start over. Once you are in the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence or Boot Order tab or settings. Change it to make the CD/DvD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. This is the normal sequence, just make sure no music cd or movie dvd is in the drive when you boot or you will get an error message.

Your system is trying to boot from someplace other than your hard drive (Probably a LAN).

Turn the computer off and restart it, but watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and start over. Select the Hard Drive as your boot device and see if it boots up. If so, you will have to do this everytime you boot up, but you can make it a permanent change so that you won't have to do this each time you boot.

To make it a permanent change, turn the laptop off, then turn it on and watch the screen to see which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit that key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and start over. Once you get into the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence or Boot Order and go to it and make the ddc/cd drive as your 1st and the Hard Drive as 2nd. This is the normal boot order but you have to make sure nothing is in the dvd/cd drive when you boot (such as a music cd or a movie dvd) otherwise the system will try to boot from it and you will get a error message. This also allows you to fix your computer in case it can't boot from the hard drive for some reason. Save the changes and exit out of the Bios or System Setup and reboot.

The software for my built-in webcam somehow got deleted from my computer. I was wondering if there is any way that I will be able to download it again from someplace.


Sony's download page for your model is here, where you can find the camera driver as well as all the other downloads they offer. This link will take you right to the camera driver download. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

HP Brightview VS Gateway Ultrabright


Hmmm, interesting -- I happen to have some questions about this model also, and the screen gloss & brightness is one of
them. I, too, prefer the brighter, glossy screens.

How fast do the answers appear here? Don't mean to rush
anyone but I need to buy this model in the next 2 days,
while it is still on sale.
