This means that the only operating system on the computer is "DOS" if it's an older machine, you will purchase a copy of some form of software such as windows that will be able to run on it. depending on how old the laptop is... flip the laptop over and take a look for a microsoft windows registration sticker. if it has one, whoever sold it to you is legally obliged to give you the copy of windows that it was shipped with... if you do not have a windows sticker. you will need to install a new operating system onto the computer. if either of these is not an option, a person may be able to look into linux, or other free operating system

I turn on my puter it goes to the user login and then logs off


Hi,

I've run into this problem too often lately. So far I haven't managed to find a decent fix for it :( I've ended up having to backup the computer's data, reinstall windows, and restore all the data.

From the times I've seen it you get to the login screen, click on your user, get the "Loading personal Settings", a quick flash of the desktop, then back to the login screen saying "saving personal settings". It would do this in both safe mode and normal mode, so I was never able to try turning off startup software or services.

Booting to the windows XP disc and running a check disc might help, but from my experience with the problem you will probably need to reinstall windows. Hopefully someone else has a better idea.

Best of luck :)

Dont have the CD to find my ip address


click on START - RUN - in the text box type CMD (this opens a DOS looking window so you can see the IP address before it flashes out of your sight) - at the command prompt type IPCONFIG
-- this will show you your IP address, it should look something like this:
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.
C:\Documents and Settings\Jeff>ipconfig
Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 6:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : domain.invalid
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.254.1 <-----------YOUR IP----------<<<<<<<
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.254.254
