Hi there,

As its HP im guessing you will have Nortons Anti Virus Running On The System, If You Left Click This For A Minute And Press Disable That Should Disable Your Firewall.

Also have you tryed to run itunes, as once that is installed your firewall should let you gain access to the Ipod

Hello Linda!
It sounds like a firewall is blocking the connection. I assume you`re using Windows, so go to Control Panel > Windows Firewall and disable it.The next step is, if your not using a proxy. Open up your browser, if you`re using Firefox go Tools>Options > Advanced> Settings... (Connection) and make sure the 'No proxy' option is checked, restart your browser. For Chrome go to Options>Under the Hood>Change proxy settings (Network) a new window will come up from here you select LAN settings(Note: This will change the proxy settings for your whole system) and select automatic if it`s on manual. Finally disable your antivirus software just for a short amount of time, and try to browse the web, just to make sure that it`s not interfering with the connection.

Wont hook to the enternet


The Ethernet adapter may be conflicting or competing with the wireless adapter for the Internet connection. Try turning off the wireless adapter. You can either disable it in device manager, or some HP laptops have a button next to the screen that will turn it off. If you don't get an Internet connection, restart the laptop and try again.

If that doesn't help, I would suspect the Ethernet adapter driver is faulty. Check it under device manager. If it has a yellow exclamation point, question mark, or is not listed, the driver needs to be installed or reinstalled. If it simply has a red X on it, enable the adapter.

If the Ethernet adapter is fine, try a different Ethernet cable. If THAT doesn't help, it's probably software related.

A firewall may be keeping you from browsing. Some firewalls may see the Ethernet connection as an entirely different connection than the wireless one. Try disabling all firewalls.

Thanks

Cannot hook to internet


This may not be a solution, but I recently was attacked by a free software website, that disabled my internet connection settings.

In Internet Explorer properties, or the menu item Tools / Options, there is a tab called "Connections" this is where your computer's internet connection decisions are made.
One option, in the LAN Settings button, is to "Automatically Detect Settings". My attacker somehow repeatedly disabled this option and I had to enable this each time I restarted my computer.

Something to try.

Cant download a pic disc onto a program. cant transfer files


. Go to Sharepod Folder. Double click on Sharepod.exe. If message “Failure to
initialize” appear on your screen, you need to download the Microsoft.NET
Framework 2.0 to run sharepod. Note this program is installed by default under
vista.

Please be careful not to run Sharepod and iTunes simultaneously as iPod might get
out of sync with both software.


Disable iTunes
  • Ensure Ipod is connected to your computer. Select removable disk in My Computer,
  • Open iTunes if not set as default. Select iPod and click Settings and disable option Open iTunes when Ipod is attached.
  • Then, scroll down and uncheck Options.
  • Next step is to Enable disk use and click Apply.

I have a Dell A525 Speaker system that I bought to use with a Dell projector and an Inspiron laptop computer. It worked fine until I had the computer stolen. Not thinking ahead I bought an HP computer...


The speakers can be used with the HP computer. The connection on the speaker set should look like the connector on a headset or headphones for an ipod. The connection for this can be located on the back of the computer near the location of where you plug in your monitor and keyboard. There also may be another location to plug this in at. If you had recently purchased this laptop, many manufacturers will put a connection the the front of the PC. Usually under a flap of some sort.

1) Check and test your firewall. Your firewall, especially if its a software firewall like ZoneAlarm, Black Ice, Norton Firewall or something else could be blocking the connection. Disable your firewall and test the connection.

2) Check your IP address

3) Reset your TCP/IP stack by downloading and running WinsockXPFix.exe a Visual Basic program designed to fix corrupted TCP/IP issues, host file problems and a variety of other connectivity issues.
