It could be a difference configuration of the ethernet adapters on each machine.

Try this from each machine when connected to the cable.
(assumes Windows XP)

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt A new window will open -- in that window type the following

ipconfig /all

If this works copy the following for each adapter (there may be more than one per machine)

IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
DNS Address(es) may be more than one

Put the answers in a comment to this problem and I will attempt to provide additional steps to resolve the issue.

one possibility --
If you loaded your DNS addresses into the laptop's adapter configuration and not into the desktop's laptop configuration that could be the issue.

There could be other issues the ipconfig answers should narrow down the problem so a specific solution can be given.

Cannot get into games

First of all make sure that your system meets the requirements for this generations online games. Pentium 4 and above, at least 256mb memory ram, at least 64 mb video card.

Online games surely needs a special software that will enable the loading of the game graphics. Direct X was the widely used supports for online games.

For some games like yahoo and facebook games, it will need a special software like Adobe Flash Player to help the games load its graphics and animations.

Have this requirements and software and you can play the games that you want in no time.

We cannot get the motherboard to show up using the current graphics card. The graphics Card is good. We tested it on another machine. The screen is just blank. Startup doesn't reveal a sound either.

sounds to me in my exp. that the motherboard is dead or perhaps the pci/agp slot mybe dead i would be looking at replacing the motherboard hope this helps

Cant hook up

ok... so im guessing your using sat for internet, so you would set one plug with zyxel PL-100 and it sending signal in, while adding zyxel PL-100 a computer works, and another craps out... Solution: use a router
insert satalite into wan port, set up router
run a client wire from the router to a zyxel PL-100
and the others should pick up off that one..

like so.. :direct from zyxel website specific for pl-100

Possible solutions:-
1:) Faulty Ethernet Card or Slot on motherboard. Possible sharing violation.
2:) Faulty-Broken-D Cable.

Solution:- remove card, and insert into another vacant PCI Slot.
check cable for kinks or breaks.

I have a acer travelmate 3000 laptop and cant get my wireless to work, if i plug in a new wirless usb stick it works fine but i wont the internal wireless to work, does this mean my internal wireless card...

Odds are pretty good the wireless is not enabled.

If you look at page three item three of the manual, it shows the button/indicator on the front of the system to enable wireless.

Speakers disabled!!?? help please

How you did the disabled, same way you can make enable.

Ok first make a check whether you required a driver or not. Follow these steps:

  1. Goto control Panel
  2. Double click on System Icon
  3. Then Click on Hardware tab
  4. Click on Device Manager.

It will open the device manager window. In this window see carfully, if there is any component with yellow marked icon, then you have some missing driver, means you have to re-install the drive. If there is any component with Red marked icon then you have disabled this, means you have to make it enable for work. Just right click on that red icon and select Enable from the pop-up appeared.

And to re-install driver goto your manufacturer site put model no. and make search, they will give you the link for download.

If any problem just Ask me.
