    I tried going to the web page you wanted, www.canada.com. I was redirected tohttp://o.canada.com/ instead. Perhaps if you used this URL instead, you might have better luck.

SOURCE: Do not know how to open a Dell Dimension 4300 case

Lay your computer on the side there should be a big button on top and also one on the bottom push both of these buttons and pull the sides back toward you.....it really takes two people to do this...
If this is not your type of case you can go to the dell website and they have instructions for different cases.

We can troubleshoot it and repair it. There is no doubt of that in my mind. But now that they admitted their fault, this is the time to make them fix your computer. If everyone would do the same thing the stealing of the customer's money will be decreased by a large measure. Again, if you want us to work on it, we are ready able and willing. But the truth must be told..... Thank you for your considering us and your choice to work with our service. My name is Constantin (arzconst is an internal nickname used with the Fixya.com).

I'm running XP Home SP3 with IE 6. Need to upgrade to later browser...7 or 8. Can I skip 7& go right to 8? Is this a good idea? My computer dates back to 2003?


It would be a good idea to upgrade from IE6 to IE8. There have been many security fixes and upgrades to IE since IE6 was released and even after IE7 too.

I would suggest upgrading to the latest version possible for your computer!

Dell Dimension L733R Windows Explorer hang


Hi, yes XP does have system restore, which you can access through safe mode, pressing the ESC key during bootup will get you there. I would not uninstall IE8, but disable by using Firefox which is a much safer browser for XP, you can down load this for free.
Hope this helps

I was able to dig this up.

Run Windows in safe mode.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\
Create a registry key REG_SZ key and call it MSIService and value data and call it Service, which is the windows installer. This will give you permission to uninstall windows service Pack 3 from add/remove programs while in safe mode.

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install


Well if you have it installed on the computer and cant get past the Windows logo. Put the SP3 disk in and do a repair. Make sure you hit -R and not the repair button after clicking continue. Well the directions for a repair will be on the screen. That is my thoughts on what you should do. If you have already done this, then I'm not sure where you should head to next. Hope this helps!!
