Question about IceBox (HL1214) PC Desktop

2 Answers

I've had my Icebox for 2 1/2 years. Can't log on to internet.

I've done everything I can think of, as well as had help from computer-smart people, but I can't get connected to the internet. Sometimes it gets a low signal, but it won't connect. I was almost in direct line with my router. I'm so disgusted. I love the tv, but the computer part STINKS!!

    Ok. In response to pgmadhav, never mind what I've tried to do to connect my Icebox to the internet. I have cable high-speed internet so what do I need to do to connect to the internet?

You have two options when connecting your Icebox to Internet (network). Depending on PCMCIA card plugged in back of your unit, wired or wireless.
If wired, you need a network cable from your unit to router.
If wireless, and assuming your router is wireless, you need to configure wireless connection settings correctly in your Icebox.
Email and ask for programming instructions.

I do not fully understand your problem I think you are trying to connect a wireless connection from a router to computer if that is the case you need to do this with a USB lead to establish your settings and once the connection is established then you can shift the computer

    I have had a Wireless printer within half a metre of the wireless router and a Laptop within 2 metres Once I went through the setup procedure with the USB connected and established the settings (The USB is used to exchange settings) I was able to reboot disconnect the USB and go anywhere with the laptop and see the signal strength change If you need detail instructions for this please reply

What is the error message? The CPUs will not overclock on there own, that requires configuration. Some components when not installed properly with cause the computer to boot to a black screen and the fan to speed up dramatically. I've seen memory sticks and display port cables cause this. Check all your hardware and make sure everything is seated properly.

Computer Running Slow

Okay, you have the same issue I used to have. I inherited a laptop from my mother, and she was the second owner. It was loaded with programs I didn't need, and had a zillion files tucked away. If you can go into your control panel and access the add or remove programs, go through it and remove every stinkin' one of the optional programs you don't ever use, or can do without. Be sure you know what you are removing. Next --and this may sound silly, especially if you have done it already-- you need to go into your homepage in your internet connection and clear all browsing history from every browser you use. These can include google, msn, explorer, firefox, etc. I find if I don't clear my browser frequently, my computer is a real *******. The next obvious step would be to get into all my documents files and delete any old files, such as photos that you don't want, a huge music collection, etc. I have all of my music stored on my D drive, because it has the same memory as my C drive, but is nearly empty. You can store and easily access all your entertainment files in D if you have a large capacity. I would perform this test: from your start menu, open my computer and right click your c, or main hard drive and click on properties. This should give you info on how much storage space you have left on the disc. If it is less than 50 percent, you may need to delete some old trash. Do the same with your d drive. If all else fails, you can go into your recovery program and see if you can wipe the computer, but that is a last resort. I had to do this with mine so I could program it to recognize me as the computer administrator. I was tired of fighting with a zillion hidden files I couldn't get into, much less locate. Hope this will help.
