Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

1 Answer

Internet connection and taskbar

Most of the times I try to connect with internet (either with its modem or with USB ADSL) the taskbar freezes, and no program can be executed. However the files can be opened. I have to disconnect and try again or CTRL+ALT+DEL and wait possibly for 5-10 min to run again.

Re: Internet connection and taskbar

This may be down to a corrupt windows update recently installed, go to start> accesories>system tools>system restore and choose a restore date to before the freezing problem started, or before any recent updates were installed.

The laptop was clean up and new windows were loaded but the internet drivers is missing. Were do i get it ?

You do no need drivers for the Internet, you only need IE browser.
If you cannot connect to the Internet then you may have one or more of these problems.
Your ADSL modem has not been configured with your Internet service provider.
Your LAN driver may not be installed or the LAN cable from your laptop to the ADSL modem is faulty.
If you connect to the Internet using a wireless connection then the wireless driver on your laptop may not be installed and or may not be configured with the router's wireless settings.

My compaq presario V2000 will only connect to dialup

To connect to your DSL internet you will need an ethernet port or wireless card on your laptop. Your laptop should have an ethernet port, it will look like a phone jack but a little bigger. In the off chance that you don't have an ethernet port on your laptop you can also purchase an ethernet to usb adpater. You may have a wireless card installed on your laptop, but if not you can purchase a usb wireless adapter. To use your internet wirelessly in your home you'll also need a wireless router. All of these things can be purchased at your local electronics store (walmart, best buy, kmart, frys) and usually are fairly easy to setup with the included instructions.
