Windows will slowly stop functioning if it was never activated till all you get is the mandatory activation screen. The problem you have besides the the activation is that your network card is not connecting to internet. You no longer can get into Windows to remedy the problem, because of the activation screen. Catch 22!

If this is true, you only option is to wipe and re-install Windows.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 6000 with network card Intel/Pro Wireless 2200 BG

So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Good luck

SOURCE: Unable to establish a wireless internet connection

Hi
Does it pickup any wireless connections? Try updating the wireless drivers. the best way to fix this would be to test the card on a different laptop. If it works on a different laptop, your laptop will need to be weeped.

SOURCE: Inspiron 6400 detects networks but does not connect to internet

Make sure you are connecting to your own internet connection through your wireless router and not on your neighbor's.....limited connectivity means you are out of reach or signal is blocked....

SOURCE: wireless network connection not working

For some reason known only to Dell, the default setting for the Inspiron 6000 built-in wireless network adapter is 'off' or 'disabled.'

If you used Dell's restore disk to reinstall XP, the radio button is turned off. Go to control panel/system/device manager, find the wireless LAN device, right-click on it and choose 'Properties.' Under 'Wireless radio' check 'on' or 'enabled.'

Go back to Windows network setup wizard and go back through the steps using the 'restore network connection' button. You should be good to go.

There's an EXCELLENT network manager from Cisco named 'Network Magic' that takes all the guesswork out of setting up your internet connection. I highly recommend it. They offer a free trial and I think may even have a 'Lite' version that helps with simple connections without the bells and whistles of the full blown program. I'm not sure about that, but I can't tell you how much time it's saved me troubleshooting and setting up networks for my clients.

Easy Way --- Note that this doesn't always work.
When you are booting your system, press the F8 key during the start of the bootup sequence, meaning after it does the Power On Self Test.

Once you press the F8 key, you will be taken to a Menu. Select "Boot Using Last Known Good Configuration".

It will now attempt to load Windows XP using a past set of configuration files.

If that doesn't work, there is the next step....the hard way.

Hard Way
Boot your system with the Windows XP Install CD, let the system boot into the Setup. Once in the Setup, choose to run the Recovery Console.

You will now be presented with a screen similar to good old DOS.

First, we will recover the System Hive.

Now, type in the following commands with pressing Enter after each line.

md tmp
copy C:\windows\system32\config\system C:\windows\tmp\system.bak
delete C:\windows\system32\config\system
copy C:\windows\repair\system C:\windows\system32\config\system

Be very careful when you are typing in these commands, one wrong move, and you have, broken Windows XP.

Also, change the C in the commands to whatever your Windows XP drive letter is.

Attempt to boot the system, if it doesn't boot, get back into the Recovery Console and do the following commands.

md tmp
copy C:\windows\system32\config\software C:\windows\tmp\software.bak
delete C:\windows\system32\config\software
copy C:\windows\repair\software C:\windows\system32\config\software

Error 25004.config.xml not specified; A valid config.xml file must be authored when deploying '(null)'. i am installing microsoft office enterprise 2007 and i enounter this problem..how will i


If the version of windows installed on your computer is not activated you would face issues to use any applications once the product is expired.

But if you have an issue with office programs with an error 25004 on an activated version of windows
Then the reason might be corrupted installation of office 2007 on the computer.
Uninstall office 2007 manually from the computer then
re-install it and check if it helps.

I want a legal product key for windows xp professional sp2 so I can register it with microsoft


Hello. If your computer has a windows XP Pro sticker on it you may be able to call Microsoft and validate your operating system if it is ligitamate, or buy an operating system disk on ebay for your brand of computer. Any Dell XP Pro disk will work with a Dell computer having a Dell XP Pro sticker, and so on for other brands, as long as your sticker has your computer brand on it. If you have a sticker without a brand name or no sticker at all you'll probably have to buy a retail disk.

These directions may be helpfull.

Need to reinstall program that manages my network adapter---how do I go about it? I have a dell inspiron laptop-windows xp. Thanks in advance.


You don't really need one as you can use the windows wireless config utility.
If you have an internal network card then go to your manufacturers website and download the drivers from there.

Adding Dell to Airport extreme


You wireless card can be controlled 2 ways, the card Wireless Utility (Dell Wireless or Intel Wireless Utility are the normal default ones) and the "Windows Zero Config" Windows wireless utility. You may need to go in to the Dell/Intel Wireless utility, and select "Let Windows Manage My Wireless" You should then get a popup saying wireless networks are available, click that balloon, select your network, and click connect. If secure, at that point you'll be prompted to type the passkey. If you are using an older Wireless card, it may only support WEP security. Vista and newer systems use a newer protocol, WPA.
