    When you say that "it wont click to open anything", are you saying that you cannot run anything off the desktop or start menu?

    It sounds like you need to start from scratch. You may have to start from scratch, meaning you'll have to do a format of the hard disk drive and reload a clean copy of XP and then reload any drivers for your peripherals.

I have a compaq presario SR1303 Wm Desktop I wont connect to internet, stating that local area cable is unplugged, however this isn't true because I have another desktop same model that works fine...


If all looks good try right clicking on network status icon in sys tray and use repair. A more advance option would be to use ipconfig from the command prompt.

Start > Run (search in Win 7) > type ipconfig /release. Then ipconfig /renew. ipconfig ? will show you all the options. Good luck.

When I turn my Samsung VRT front loader on, the hourglass will not go off and washer start.


I am having the same issue as well i.e i can set the cycle but the washer wont start (the hourglass Icon remains lit). If i press the off button. The display shows off but the display doesnt shut down. Thought this might a control board issue. Bought one off of ebay & replaced it. Did not make any difference (p.s the machine is outside of US so calling service is not an option).

When I turn on my kids computer, the desktop comes on, but the taskbar won't load & when I hold the cursor over where the taskbar should be, it shows the hourglass. The same happens if I hold it over...


perhaps its a simple viewing issue -- the task bar can be dragged into whatever corner you want it and it is hiding on you or it may not be sleceted .
try going to CONTROL PANEL, clcik on TASKBAR & START MENU, review the choices you see there and slecet whatever one you prefer.

hope this helps

Keep loosing my internet connection when I have


Isolate the problem if you can by using a laptop on you Internet connection and see if it stay connected. If your PC is fully updated with the Microsoft Patches and you believe you are Virus and Malware Free... it could be the Modem from WildBlue. Since it is a Satilite system, you should have support with them to run a Diagnostic.

Blackberry curve 8310 fatal error during backup


I would connect the device to a PC and update the OS using Desktop Manager. If you recently installed any application, I would uninstall it as this may cause this type of behavior.

Acer laptop won't open programs when turned on. Hourglass stays stuck on screen


Sounds like a registry or memory problem. Try doing a system restore in safe mode to a earlier time and see if that works. If not it may be a memory problem. If you can get it up in running in safe mode try shutting down some of the not needed start up programs by going to run and type "msconfig" without the " " and click start up and take out all the excessive stuff.

Keep losing wireless network on laptop. completely disappears and can not find it to reconnect


Hi..
I was having the same issue with my notebook. I was losing connectivity to the internet at both home and office through my browsers and outlook consistantly after boot up for approximately 10 minutes. The only way to get more connectivity was to reboot my machine (ten more minutes). Emachines help desk was no help. Their fix all response was to format the harddrive and start over. What I did to fix it was:

Start
Control Panel
Network Connections
There, I disabled the wireless network connection and waited for the hourglass to go away. Then reenabled it and have had wireless connectivity since.



Good Luck ;-)

AOL Hourglass


Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors.

Try AOL again.

 

If AOL is still not working...

Un-install AOL.

Shut down completely for at lest 30 seconds, then restart.

Then do a search for all AOL files and folders with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those found.

Restart then run Registry Mechanic again.

Shutdown restart.

Reinstall AOL.
