If other computers in your home network can access internet then on your PC is already virus that is blocking internet connections. Simplest way is to format system or all HDD and do fresh windows installation.

I wanna reformat my acer 4620z laptop but i dont know how to. any kind souls able to help me out with this problem??


Hi there,

First thing, you must have the Windows XP/Vista Installer with you.

This CD will be the one you will use to reformat and install a fresh copy of windows OS on your Laptop.

Once you have this Windows Installer, put it on the Laptop CD Tray, and the rest will be easy for you.

A installing wizard will guide you to setup process.

Let me hear from you again for any clarification of your problem.

Thanks.

make sure you dont have the mic muted on the sound controls through control panel. Also both of these programs have preferences and you might need to check that your internal mic is selected as the input device.

How instile MS xp for notebook CP


If you have Vsta already loaded on your laptop and want to get rid of it, in favor of XP Pro, you must do a few things.
1 - determine if there are any files you need to keep, like documents (Word, etc.) or spreadsheets (Excel XLS, etc.) and like that.
2 - use a DVD-R or RW and write all the critical documents to the DVD so that you don't lose them in this process. Do a simple Copy from Windows Explorer.
3 - once all has been saved, the easiest way to accomplish what you want, is to boot the laptop using a legal Microsoft XP Pro CD or DVD, then follow the instructions to creating a bootable version of XP Pro on the lapop.
4 - you will need to decide if you want to have a dual-boot system or only an XP Pro system.
5 - if you want dual boot, follow the instructions; if XP Pro only, then follow those instructions. They should all reside on the XP Pro installation disk.

But remember that XP Pro is an older OS than Vista, so your installation media will only be able to get you so far. I would recommend following the instructions to creating an XP Pro bootable laptop only, and that means to then format the entire C drive, and then use the install media to create an XP Pro C Drive.

6 - go from there to an XP Pro laptop.
7 - as soon as the system is finished, and stable, rather than starting to install all the applications you want, like Office or other applcations, go to Microsoft's update site and update your XP Pro laptop to the newest versions of those things which will protect your system from outside problems. Update the protection applications from Microsoft first. Let the Update Site recommend, and choose from that list.

If you're going to install an anti-virus, like Norton AV, then start by installing the newest version of Norton AV or 360 or Internet Protection, etc. Then, go to the Symantec/Norton site, and update all those applications, too, especially the latest virus definitions or signatures.

Do it that way, to ensure your system is built slowly and with the most safety possible.

Be careful, and deliberate, and make sure you do not rush through this process, as it is extremely important to do it right, right from the start.

Good luck!

Downgrade from Vista to WinXP Pro


No, you need to go into your computer's BIOS and set the ahcp mode to IDE. Then windows xp will see it just fine.

The driver you have downloaded may only support windows Vista. This may be your case. As one technical expert says that all driver versions above 100 are made for vista. So download some lesser versions.
