Might want to check the ram. That will always make a PC run slow, but if you have a sufficient amount of ram I would say a gig for running xp. Then re-formatting and re-installing the OS will make the computer faster. Also some PC have a built in recovery partition.

Use static IP addresses. Do not DHCP from the router. Still use the same DNS and gateway. Just specify an IP address for each one, preferably not in the DHCP range used on the router.

Hi hemgri,

the answer to this problem is unfortunately not that easy, because multiple reasons can cause this error.

It could be a simple DNS or DHCP service error, that can hopefully be fixed by restarting the services
  1. Go to Start>Run and type "services.msc" and click ok
  2. In the list look for "DHCP Client". Right-click and choose Stop
  3. Then right-click "DHCP Client" again and choose Start.
  4. Then look for "DNS Client". Right-click and choose Stop.
  5. Once again right click "DNS Client" and choose Start.
  6. Double-click your Internet Explorer button and all should be working now.
It is also possible that your DNS server is not working properly. What ISP do you have and what are your DNS servers? Try assigning a static DNS server.

  1. Go to Control Panel>Network Connections.
  2. Right-click on Local Area Connections and go to properties
  3. Double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
  4. Chose "Use the Following DNS server"
  5. Type in 4.2.2.2 on the first line and 4.2.2.3 on the second line.(These are Verizon's DNS server.) Click OK.
We are just going to use theseDNS to see if there is something wrong with your ISP's DNS. Try browsing and see if it works. If it does, you can also use one of the open DNS servers instead of the one's from your ISP, i.e. OpenDNS's free DNS servers: 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

If this still doesn't work, then there is a possibility that your computer is infected with a virus. To do something about that would be too much for this forum, because it involves posting of 'HijackThis" logs. Have a look here, someone had the same problem. Try to find help there - the guys are really good and know what they're doing.

Please leave a comment, so I (and maybe others) can learn more about this.

Good luck!

Dhcp in server 2003 in domain not working


Windows 2003 server supports DHCP. If you don't see in Administrative tool DHCP maybe the DHCP role is not enabled. You can add this role in "Manage your server". You don't need to reinstall win 2003 server.
Another way to access DHCP management tool is: in command prompt type mmc and then File> "Add remove snap-in" then "Add" and select DHCP.

LinkedIn tanks at log in w/ Windows Vista, fine with prior operating systems


Hello,
It sounds like you have connection issues.
For starter please consider disabling your firewall (under control panel) then try connecting.
If this doesn't work please try reseting internet explorer settings (under explorer-tools).
Check with tech support of linkedln to see if they require special internet explorer security settings and have them walk you through your settings to make sure nothing has changed.
Last but not least I'd try to go to system restore and restore to a point where you are sure evrything had worked like couple of weeks ago or even one month ago if possible.
(start-programs-accessories-system tools-system restore).
The system restore tool doesn't erase or change any data although if installed any program since that point you are going to have to reinstall it since system restore will restore all registry information to that specific point and disregard everything you did afterwards, therefor I'm going to have to tell you to use at your own risk.
Good luck.
Thank you for using agadycom.
