I am connected to internet but get error 651


I am assuming you have purchased a new pc with Windows7 and have a DSL internet connection. If so the following tutorial should prove useful. This is a common problem and known bug within the Windows7 framework that they are working to correct. Keep in mind that this fix is only applicable for the Windows7 operating system.

"The RAS PPPoE driver file "raspppoe.sys" found under c:windowssystem32drivers folder seems to be the root cause of the problem. Fortunately, we can work around the problem simply by renaming the original raspppoe.sys file to something like "raspppoe_orig.sys" copying a working file from a Windows Vista system. If you do not have access to a Windows Vista system click here to download raspppoe.sys file (unzip)."


http://www.windowsreference.com/windows-7/error-651-with-pppoe-connections-in-windows-7/

Once downloaded and unzipped you may rename the old rasppoe file as mentioned above by right clicking the icon and choosing 'rename'. Then copy the new rasppoe file you downloaded into the applicable folder. You will find this file in the following directory C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers. Bear in mind, when searching for the file inside the drivers folder, the .sys file extension may or may not be included in the actual name. If the original file is named 'rasppoe' without the .sys file extension in the name, leave this file extension off when renaming and copying as well.

Transfer all files from my old desktop to new laptop


you can do that by following the steps below;
Instructions
  1. Step 1 Connect your laptop to your desktop through a home network connection. If you have a home network, you can hook up your laptop to it via an Ethernet cable or a wireless network card. Then, you can set a folder on your desktop computer to be shared across the network. To set a folder as shared in Windows, simply right click on it, select "Sharing and security," select the "Share" tab and check the box labeled "Share this folder on the network." You will then be able to access this folder from your laptop and transfer files to your.hard drive.
  2. Step 2 Purchase a USB jump drive. These handy devices are the size of a key but can store five gigabytes of files or even more, depending on the type of USB jump drive you buy. Insert the USB jump drive into your USB port and your operating system should find it as new hardware. If a window doesn't automatically come up, you can find in your drives under "My Computer." Then, you can click and drag files into it, remove the drive and take it to your desktop computer and access the files there.
  3. Step 3 Put your files onto another external storage device, such a CD, floppy disk or external hard drive. Files are transferable between any computers as long as you can store them on something external, then use that external device to move them to the other computer.
  4. Step 4 Email files to yourself. If you only have a few files that you would like to transfer and don't have any of the equipment used in Steps 1 through 3, send yourself an email with the files attached, access your email from the other computer and download the files to your hard drive.

I have same problem


The D drive is normally a partition of the C drive rather than a separate drive and is used by many to keep restore files handy for restoration use; system backdating to refresh system files. The D partition, while available and accessible for other purposes is customarily not used for user files and because of the nature of the system installed files, has protection against accidental erasure.
You should be able to copy your photo folders & files intact back to the C (main) partition and regain normal use of them.

Setting Up and connecting to a Windows 2000 server.


you do this by sharing a folder on you win 2k file server computer and setting appropiate permissions
and you access you're share folder via network neighborhood or my network places. you may also may want to map the share folder for you to easily access stuff in it and put stuff back aswell.

you also need some physical set up
your network should be something like this

internet ISP------ modem-------- router-------- file server (win 2k)
-------- your computer
also you neet to give your network a name so all your computers are part of the same network (peer to peer network)

this will give you detail instructions on sharing folders:

My ACER Aspire 9301AWSMi has run out of space on its hard disk. When I checked, the ACER C drive is full, but the ACER D drive ir empty with 33 gb of free space but I don't know how to access it, as I...


you just right click on the d drive and select explore or double click it, there won't be anything in the drive apart from maybe a system back up file.

when in there make a new folder called programme files

If you have a lot of programmes installed on your c drive, then uninsatl them and reinstall again, but when the option comes up to install in a specific folder choose 'D' drive then choose programme files folder, the programme will then be installed there, but will still put an icon on your desktop as normal.

you can also transfer any video or music to the d drive, just make a folder in the d drive called music and video, select your music you wish to move select 'Cut' then open the folder on the 'D' drive and select paste.

Also run this free programme to clear your system up

Stand alone vb programme


yaa you can use the Setup Wizard from your VB for your project. It will make a setup for your project and will put all the runtime required files in a same folder, with your project executable with a setup.exe file. Copy all these files in any device like CD,DVD, Flash memo etc, in a same folder. And run this setup on any computer to which you want to install it.

Then your project will run on that computer.


Thanks
