Unable to connect to internet

Windows was unable to check for updates on my computer and Microsoft advised me to reload it. Everything was wiped from the desktop.

Now when I try to connect to the internet I get a message Error 814. Install and enable the ethernet adaptor.

The computer was purchased last March.

    What is the make and model of your PC? It sounds like you need to reinstall your ethernet adapater driver from the manufacturer.

Windows does not install the drivers for Ethernet cards, sound cards and wireless and stuff by default, it only installs basic drivers. You need to go to DELL's online site ( http://www.dell.com ) and search for your laptop drivers using your Service Tag no. (which is printed somewhere on the laptop case). Download the driver software and install it on your laptop.

Alternatively if you have the DELL installation resource CD, it will have the drivers for all your hardware on it and you can install it from there.

Hi.

What do you mean by "reloading Windows"? Did you repair it? Maybe did reinstallation? If so, you may need to install drivers for your Ethernet adapter. You will need to specify Ethernet adapter manufacturer and model (if it is onboard adapter, then motherboard manufacturer and model), so I can provide you with the download link, in case you don't have the drivers.

I'm connected to a wireless network but unable to get internet explorer to connect to the internet. what do i do?


The WiFi software that is embeded into the OS does not work very well. Fortunately digitalgadget.com has a download that somewhat fixes this problem fairly well. The new download is not totally goof proof, but you can work with it.

Go to: http://www.digitalgadgets.com/netbooks/update.html and download the indicated update. You can copy it to a thumb drive and connect the thumb drive to your Sylvania , find it under My Computer and then copy it to your
desktop and run it from there.

I was useing my computer and the screen turned blue and said unable to load windows. it wont strat up again it just keeps going to the blue screen. it will only turn off it i pull out the battires.


There is a virus which has corrupted some files and therefore it is unable to load windows. In this case you have to reload windows with the help of CDs which came with the computer. If you had made a start up CD, which is advised, when you purchased the computer, that will be very helpful in this case. The only set back will be that you will loose certain data as everything will be reset to factory settings.

Reloaded windows xp and now i am unable to connect


Hi, First option is to locate the Drivers and Utility Disks that came with your computer and use it to re-install all drivers; especially the one that allows you to connect to the network / internet service. Second option is to go to a computer (maybe a cafe) that is connected to the Internet, go to the support page of your computer manufacturers website, download the essential drivers you need, save them to a USB / Flash disk and then go install on your own computer.

OK for now I would "Roll Back" ya update... OR use system restore.... See if'n it come right if so then Google and see if there are any problems with XP SP3 & EEE PC (I have one and simply LOVE it)... If not.. then maybe ya have a hardware problem co-incidentally.. as a last resort put the linux system on it and test that way? Service packs can be a bear for sure... I would suspect a driver issue or the like but with service packs ya just never know... GL
