    they are about a cm square and im on a G4 1.25 dualproc and it happens all the time and in most programs. It happened right after i got it and i emailed the seller and he gave me or told me something to do and I can't remember what it was, i assumed it was a driver of some sort.

    Hi Denis

    Cab you describe with a bit more detail. How big are these little white boxes and where are they?

    What Mac are you connected to?
    Does it happen all the time or only when using certain app?

    As you are on a mac and using an Apple monitor there are no drivers to install.

No sim card installed

Internet should be already on a laptop. It could be tough, the best thing to try on win XP is click on Control Panel in the Windows start menu (that should be on the part of the menu that is NOT all programs) then click Administative Tools (with the little hammer and folder and pc picture Icon) then you'll see 2 little gears called Services, click on that. Those Services should be in alphabetical order if not alphabitize them by clicking on the coloums heading (it says name) this click will sort the services by alphabetical order. Now scroll up or down to the services that start with the letter W. Find Windows Zero Configuration, and double click that. Change Start Up Type in the drop down box to Automatic, and click START just below it. Click OK at the very bottom. Maybe restart your PC, is best. You have to install a driver get it online or use the disc that came with your wireless card. Usually the ones from online don't always install automatically like a CD does, but you can find most drivers from the manufactures web site. If the online one doesn't install automatically, you'll have to click My Computer with the RIGHT HAND mouse button click the very bottom choice called properties from the list that drops down, then you should have a window with 7 tabs at the top, click the one that says Hardware. Click on the very top button Device Manager this opens a window that shows every piece on mechanical hardware and some virtual hardware install inside your PC in groups. One group should be open (or expanded) if your wireless card is not installed properly. There will be an entry that say UNKNOWN DEVICE with a tiny yellow circle with an exclamation point in it Click that the new box that opens usually has four or five tabs at the top, sometimes only three, but the second tab is almost guarenteed to say Driver click on Driver and then the second button down on that page is Update Driver, click that and then use the Browse button to browse around your PC for the driver files, either on the disc or where you downloaded them (My Documents, desktop, some other folder) if the download is a Zip file you have to Extract all files to a folder and them browse to that folder. Win XP is easy just double click the download it opens in a folder and to your left in the folder window but towards the top there is a command it says Extract Files, just look carfully at the next step to see where, or change where they will be unzipped to. Browsing for the driver is easy Update Driver, next Browse, find the location on the CD or on you PC look for a folder that says Drivers, or XP, or x86 and select it if the OK button at the bottom turns black theres a chance thats the right folder, just click OK. If it's not you'll be told by Windows so just try again in a different folder, you'll find it, when you hit the right one your Wireless card will install. Restart. And a little mini computer Monitor should appear way over to the very bottom right of your monitor in the Notification Area. Double click that little tiny monitor icon (the one with the single monitor picture not the one with the double monitors as that is your WIRED connection) and you should get the Choose A Wireless Network window, or Wireless Network Connection Status window, if you get the network status window your already connected, but could be connected to a dead router that the peoples cable has been shut off for a year but they never unplugged their router, or the wrong network. Down below on the network status window click View Wireless Networks, and that will bring you to Choose a Wireless Network, click on yours, click Connect down below and your on. Sounds easy huh? Not in my lifetime. Call me. KEN

At first Ithought it was my monitor, so I went and bought a new monitor. Hooked up the new monitor and monitor is still blank. It turns on Windows XP and then a little box comes up "sleep mode"...

Have your tried booting into "Safe Mode" ? minimal video drivers are used, allowing you to go in to
  • Control Panel
  • System
  • Hardware
  • Device Manager
  • Display Adapter , Uninstall your old driver
  • Reboot , this allows yours system to clear the registry
  • Re-install video drivers for new card

Hi there

This is probably a runtime error,what you should do is to;

Open Internet Explorer on your desktop. Click on "Tools" in the upper menu and then "Internet Options."

Select "Advanced" and look at the box showing multiple options that can be activated with a green check mark by clicking a little white box to the left.

Scroll down until you see the message "Disable Script Debugging"--one for Internet Explorer and the next for "Other" underneath. Both "Internet Explorer" and "Other" are in parentheses.

Click into the white boxes to the left of each one so the green check mark appears.

Press "OK" at the bottom, and the runtime error messages shouldn't ever appear again when you use Internet Explorer.

Native resolution suddenly scrolls.

The native resolution for the Acer AL2216W is 1600X1200. It is acting correctly for the resolution you have set it to.

Not all colors and images show on monitor

Sounds like the speed optimizer either from AOL or in your browser settings that is not allowing your "Pictures" to be downloaded and seen. Try turning off the speed optimizer in aol or reinstalling the drivers for the Video Adapter. To do that right click my computer/left click Properties/ left click hardware/ left click device manager/ left click the small plus box in the display adapter/ highlight the display adapter and click update driver in the upper icon box. When the option comes up use the bottom option select a driver myself, click the bottom option again and select it from a list, then install the one that comes up in the white box. that will reset the video driver to the default settings. Hope this helps. Chuck
