SOURCE: Dell Inspiron E1505 no sound in web browser

Thanks for the response damanpreet_c.
The volume button on the video and of the computer volume control are all to maximum.
I tried watching the same videos on other computers and they work fine.
However, Dell computer which used to play Video X through browsers A,B,C and had sound out now doesn't have any sound out. The same Video X after downloading on the same computer has the sound out. The same Video X without downloading through browsers A,B,C have the sound on other computers. Would this imply that on the Dell computer, the browser has some issues with the sound drivers in playing files?
Thanks again for the response.

SOURCE: cannot connect to wifi on our bt home hub

Could be a variety of reasons.
Assuming you have not had it working before
Assuming the wifi is broadcasting it SSID
Assuming you have laptop connected by ethernet cable to hub:

Assuming you have XP:

Go to start/control panel/network connections/right click the wireless lan icon and select properties/select wireless connections and delete ALL previous entries.

With Vista go:start globe then

Control Panel\Network and Sharing\Manage Wireless Networks and delete all entries


press windows key and R
type cmd and enter
type ipconfig and enter
note lower set of figures ie
open browser and type in those figures and enter
should now open router firmware
When asked for log in use defaults of admin - admin or admin - password

navigate to wireless security and set encryption to WEP 64bit and create a simple encryption code - save settings

Change broadcast channel to 8

make sure wifi is set to open and not shared

Save all settings, allow hub to reboot and now see what happens

I cannot get online with google chrome, it keeps flashing reconnecting.

A few things you can try:
1) Check to make sure your firewall is not blocking Chrome. If it is allowed, try deleting it from the list, then start Chrome and follow the firewall prompts to allow Chrome.

2) Uninstall Chrome, reboot, then reinstall Chrome.

3) See if this Google Diagnostics page can be helpful:

Best of luck.

Facebook, Yahoo, Google don't open in Chrome or Ie, only in Firefox.

You said that the sites u mentioned are working perfectly in safe mode r8?? It means that some program is there which is blocking access to these sites in normal mode.. Do the following
1. Disable all startup items and services in safe mode .
2. Restart ur pc and open it in normal mode.

Now check weather your chrome or IE8 browser can access to these sites.
THank you

Why i diD n0T uSe thE fAcebook siTe????

Do you have any ad-Blockers? what is your firewall? any popup blockers?
you may need to allow the website through your firewall if its not windows firewall
if you have windows Firewall then an ad blocker/popup blocker is blocking it, allow through that or turn off your ad blocker/popup blocker
Q: why would an ad blocker/popup blocker block Facebook?
A: Facebook contains elements that are often identified as ads or popups, Most of the content are popups/ads, and as such since the entirety of Facebook runs off popups/ads, that is blocked as a result of being identified as unsafe, do not be surprised, some websites are blocked like this that are actually safe and are otherwise known as False Positives in terms of spyware, viruses, Potentially unsafe websites, etc
Q: Is there a solution? A: Yes, uninstall your popup/ad blocker IF you havent bought actually bought it and download and install Peerblock:
for your reference i have mine set to block: Anti-p2p Spyware Advertising
and if you use Google Chrome or something that uses Google Chrome Extensions, install this, it doesnt block Facebook, but blocks all ads and saves your download bandwidth, i cant recommend this extension highly enough :) :

All of a sudden I am unable to open certain sites.

Some hotels install a webfilter, to stop people looking at dodgy sites or using all there bandwidth on downloading music or movies.

If this is not looked after by a good admin then you will find that it will block site which should not be. best to call there support and see if they can sort it.

Error 102 in Google Chrome

Here is why I receive this error:
When I had installed Google Chrome, I chose "not to participate to make our software experience better." I also do not use Google as my start page. What is happening is that the browser "phones home" against your choice and against your will, thus the error code. I have my firewall to block and that is why I get this error, no matter what website I go to. Uninstall it and use Firefox, until Google respects your privacy.

Oh, and try it and you will see this is the truth. Block with your firewall and go to any will not be able to use Google Chrome and you get that error - it collects your personnel info. I had to use Firefox to post this. If you are comfortable with google tracking your web activity, by all means, use it.

Chrome Error 105

Go into the Tools area, select Options, then in the Privacy section, turn off DNS pre-fetching. Worked well for me.
