Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I keep getting kick off of certain web sites and losing connections and I can't get my pc printer to work since I had viruses removed

I recently had my pc worked on. I had viruses removed. I have a fairly old compaq, pc. I no longer have the disk that would have come with it for down-loads such as software etc. the pc is about 10 yrs ols. I use a persario,5000. I also have a compaq printer again the disk is no loger to be found. Being of little knowledge in the pc world. I can't get my printer to operate and with the pc, I have trouble staying on line with simple things such as just playing chess. What am I missing? Is there a free sight I should go to? I saw that compaq wants $1.99 per minute to talk to some-one live for help. Thats a price for adult only sights. Can you help. Thank- You

As far as the printer goes you should be able to type the printer name into google and find the driver and install disk for it so that you can reinstall it. And as far as getting kicked off line i would just clear your cookies, temporary file and such under your internet explorer. Go to tools/internet options and delete... or it will be seperated with a delete cookies and a tab for delete files. No worries this will not harm your pc what so ever. If anything it will speed your browsing abilities.

There may be many reasons behind this :-

2. Probably there might me something on your computer like any virus or even may be an antivirus which is trying to close the Pinterest.

Dropping Wireless Connection


In some cases it is not always the signal strength as it is the updated drivers necessary to communicate with the computer system. Go to the manufactures web site and look for updates. Make certain your Windows updates are current also. If necessary, delete the Printer and reinstall it again. You may try to go to control panel/ devices. Pull up the Printer line and hit update drivers.

I want to log in to facebook i cant log in it shows me bad resqust 400http


Sounds like a spyware problem to me. Try running Ad Aware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/.


There is a low-level problem in the client or the Web server or both. 95% of the time this is because of a problem on the client system e.g. there is something unstable on your PC running the Web browser.
  • Is your PC secure ?. If your PC is not well-protected, then all kinds of problems may occur - including HTTP 400 errors. If you run Windows, stay uptodate with automatic security updates from Microsoft and possibly consider getting a registry cleaner. Always have good anti-virus and spyware protection. Invest in a hardware firewall if you can afford one. Be sensible surfing the Web - block pop-up windows and avoid bad sites. If your PC security is compromised, then Web traffic out from your PC to the Internet may be secretly corrupted by malware (spyware, viruses, etc.) running on your PC. This can be difficult for you to detect.
  • Have you installed web-based software ?. Some social networking and games sites ask you to download and run software on your PC so you can interact with other people on the Internet directly (without using your Web browser). This software, if badly written or even criminal, can corrupt all HTTP traffic from your PC. Getting rid of that defective software can be difficult. At worst you may have to reinstall your operating system again (possibly losing all your personal data on your PC if you do not have backup).
  • How stable is your Internet connection ?. If you have recently changed ISPs or your ISP is very slow or unreliable, then Web traffic from your PC out to any site on the Internet may be corrupt. Your ISP may have reconfigured some of their setup (e.g. introduced new proxy servers or cacheing) that is causing some instability. A possible sign of problems here is if you can not easily browse the Web site of your ISP. You can also try to check that the Web site you are actually visiting is the one you think you are visiting. For example, you may have a DNS problem. You can check this using a 'ping' test. A DNS problem may be caused by your ISP or may be on your own system e.g. in a 'hosts' file.
  • Do you get the error on more than one Web site ?. If you get the error on lots of Web sites, this indicates the problem is on your PC, not on those sites.
  • Do you get the error using more than one browser ?. If you have two or more Web browsers installed on your PC and the behaviour is not the same (one Web browser gives an HTTP 400 error visiting a site, another Web browser does not give the 400 error visiting the same site), then one of your browsers may be defective. Try to find an upgrade or security fix for the problem browser. If you recently changed some configuration options in the problem browser, try reversing the change to see if that helps.
  • Do you get the error on big Web sites ?. If you get the problem on quite a small site, visit some of the bigger sites like Amazon, Ebay, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo. If you get the problem only on small sites, it indicates a problem with only those sites or the traffic from your PC to those sites.
  • Do you get the error on simple URLs ?. If you get a problem with a long complicated URL (such as http://www.xxx.com?PHPrequest=643&value=dres&cookies=No) but not with a shorter simpler URL for the same site (such as http://www.xxx.com), this can indicate a problem with the Web server on the site you are trying to visit. This is not conclusive evidence, but is a good starting point. Contact the owners of the Web site and describe the problem to them. You may find for example the problem occurs with POST methods (you are both submitting data to the Web site and retrieving data from the Web site), but not with GET methods (you are only retrieving data from the Web site).
  • Do you have a cache problem ?. Try clearing your cookies, browser cache and browsing history in your Web browser. Disable or remove any third-party cacheing or 'web accelerator' software you installed. Then try rebooting your PC and any firewall/router you use to connect to the Internet. That may not fix the error, but at least may eliminate any problem due to old settings on your PC.
  • What has changed since you started getting the HTTP 400 problem ?. In general terms, think about what has changed on your PC since you first started seeing the problem. This may cover any of the items mentioned above. Work backwards and see if undoing those changes makes any difference.

Cant stay online. and cant pull up certain sites ie.myspace. may have virus


Some newer viruses block web sites, including sites of most popular virus removal software. If you have a virus removal tool on your machine, unplug from the web and try to run a full scan as the first step.

Yep Formatting certainly will get rid of virus ! But if you do not want to lose your contacts or personals datas you can try free antivirus softwares for symbian phones
also tips to format :
Here’s how you can remove, clear and clean the virus from your Nokia cell phone :
1> Remove the memory card from your cell phone and keep it in a clean and safe place. 2> Turn on your cell phone and key in #7370# 3> Security code prompt comes up, if you have set a security key, then key it in, else key in the default security key which is 12345.

This step is actually hard resetting your mobile phone. Which means that you might lose all data if you have not backed it up and moved it on to the memory card. Hence it is very important that you remove the memory card before performing this process.
Chances are that your memory card may also be infected by the virus. To remove the virus from memory card, put it on a card reader, connect it to your PC, either run one of the latest anti-virus software on it or format it if the anti-virus fails to remove the virus (You’ll end up losing the data here), which should clean it up.
Put the memory card back in your cell phone, restart the cell phone, which is now clean of the virus.

VERY SLOW..AND some internet not working!


One of the first things to do is download a program called "Malware Bytes" (Google it). Install and run the scanner/cleaner to wipe any nasties off of the machine. You may find that after running this program many of the woes you've described magically go away (especially the slow operation)...

Internet sites not working


After running your antivirus, clear the virus vault, the reboot, and start the process over again, twice should do it. Also, go to filehip[po.com and download CCleaner and run it. It will help clean out excess build up of unnecessary **** (for lack of space to list all the items included) making your machine run faster and more efficiently. If you continue to have problems, the virus may have damaged the operating system, a system restore or reload will correct this. (Only after removing the virus) If you can't remove the virus, then it has damaged your antivirus software, many of the newer viruses go directly for the antivirus first, then the system. If this is the case the only way to be certain is to completely wipe the hard drive and reload the operating system.

You probably have a trial version of theAnti virus. Yes you can uninstall it through Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs.

But after uninstalling I suggest that you download a Free Version of Anti Virus. Just Google it or you can try AVG free version so you'll still be protected when you Browse or connect to the NET.
