Re: lightning


In a nutshell, yes and not only to a Dell but to most computer brands/models. In some instances, it's only the modem, router, LAN card that gets fried while some gets everything toasted.

Incidentally, even a near lightning strike is enough to cause big problems.

Kind regards.

I can't get my desk top to connect to internet it tells me my ip address is not right but my lap top goes through my desk top and i don't have any problems getting on line.

your dell needs a network adapter card or wireless card installed is that the case(look in b ack)

if no wireless, then it needs an ethernet cable plugged into modem/router from cin bell and then in back of dell

please advise your network configuration

Frequent message - virtural memory is low, increasing memory

Many times upgrading the ram amount will correct this problem. You may also upgrade you Video card for one that has a lot more memory chips(Total Ram) on it, since you have a desk top type computer. I have included a link in case you have misplaced you manual to see the original specifications. Ram and Video cards are available on line for such places as :               or                to name two.

Not without major case modifications. Dell uses Dell specific rather than industry standard motherboards on all their systems except the newest XPS line. Sorry.

Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top

No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.
