How to remove contant Advisor from my laptop

I bought a Toshiba 490xcdt from ebay. I got wireless internet. I can,t get through to any sites because every time I try a contant Advisor sign keeps coming up it tells me I need a pass word to enter. How can I remove this so I can just seach the web and get my email. It comes on when I try to use the cdrom . I can,t access any thing. I called the guy who I bought from he sayes he don,t know what to tell me. When the content advisor comes up it says enter your dogs name I did that and it
says wrong pass word. I don,t even know what a content advisor is or where it came from.

In your internet explorer click on Tools>Internet Options >Content. Disable the content adviser. if you cant get the password just download say Mozilla Firefox then use that as your browser.

What year was my toshiba satellite 490xcdt made? And is it worth anything other than scrap parts?

That model appears to be from the 1970's. I would not recommend investing any money into it as the price of a new unit is so low in todays market.

I bought it off ebay how can

Your device should have an in-built 56k modem, which you can plug a phone line into to get dial-up internet. However, that's a slow and painful way to use the internet.

More practical, but still difficult, would be to trawl IT retailers or eBay for PCMCIA network cards. You can obtain cards with physical ethernet ports, wireless cards, or various other networking interface. PCMCIA cards are also being phased out, so they could be tricky to find, but that would definitely be the best method.

Laptop doesn't recognize a wireless card.

You have to install the correct Vista driver for the 'type' of card you are using. It could be an Intel, Atheros, Realtek etc
Have a look here:

You could download Belarc Advisor, which will tell you a lot about your computer and the hardware that it is using, including your wireless card type. Download and install the appropriate driver from that site and install it and reboot.
Hope this helps:)

Toshiba 490xcdt

Are you sure you used the charger with the exact specifications?

I once encountered a problem like this... try removing the battery and replacing it after some 5-10 minutes. It worked for me.
If it doesn't, try whether it would work only on main AC with no battery inside what-so-ever. Then - try with it.

Oh, and no, laptops - to my knowledge - do not have fuses... at least those 4-5 I opened didn't.

Hope this helps. I'll post up if anything else comes to mind...
