Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop

IE icon missing in tray on left - (XP IE7 Sony Viao)

It was there and now it's not! I am sure I must have done something but I have no idea what it might have been. I can use the shortcut on my desktop - but that's awkward at times. Thoughts? Instructions to correct? I haven't been able to locate anything - hoping it's a super simple fix and I am just missing the obvious somehow/somewhere.

Appreciate the assistance,
~Tami

    Thanks, Quick launch was checked earlier - but I unchecked and rechecked and was then able to drag it to the tray - you're the 'bestest' and speedy too!

    Thanks again,

Right click on the taskbar at the bottom. Under the "toolbars" item, be sure the "quicklaunch" toolbar is checked. That will restore the shortcut to the taskbar.
If your quicklaunch toolbar is checked and no IE icon is there, just drag the shortcut from your desktop to the taskbar and it will be there for you.

I need to change my internet explorer 8 to internet explorer 7 & i have windows vista


Hi,
Click on the start menu (orb), go to the Control Panel and select Programs & Features. From the list of installed software locate IE8 and uninstall it.

Restart your computer and download IE7 from here (its say's it's for XP, just ignore that it will work on Vista)

May i also recommend Mozilla Firefox. This much easier and faster than any version of Internet Explorer. Get it here >>>>>

Optical drive sony viao vgn fs840/w won't register


try downloading the VIAO update tool
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFS840W&upd_id=2775&os_id=7

this will ensure you have the latest software + drivers for your system.

problems with CD drives tend to be problems with the IDE drivers, so it may be a good idea to download the latest Chipset drivers either directly from sony (or using the tool above)
or downloading from the intel website

IE 7


Yes you can upgrade your Internet Explorer to IE7 (assuming you have IE6 right now)

You can download and install IE7 from Windows updates or go to the Windows Support Site to download it at http://support.microsoft.com

Only upgrade to IE7. Do not download and install IE8 Beta. It is still in testing. IE7 will not cause any problem with your HP Pavilion.

This fix works for both missing IE7 tabs and missing Desktop icon in Display Properties. Good luck!

Open up a command prompt (cmd.exe from "run") and enter the following;

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer" /V ClassicShell /T REG_DWORD /F /D 0

This should sort out your problem.

IE 8 Installation Problems


I had the same problem. I had IE7 and installed IE8. IE8 caused a lot of problems, so I used system restore. I was back to IE7 but it was not functioning properly. I had to downgrade to IE6 and then reinstall IE7. Its all back to normal. What a pain

Unable to work with Internet Explorer... :-(


It sounds as though the IE7 application may be corrupted. Try removing IE7.

To Remove IE7: Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Select Internet Explorer 7 > Select Remove. IE is a core component of XP. Hence, your machine will revert to IE6. Reboot pc. If you like IE7, visit Microsoft and download a fresh copy.

Good luck.
